    Lithuania said Friday it would buy 88 German-made armored fighting vehicles in its biggest-ever military purchase amid concerns over neighboring Russia. "We have come to the unequivocal opinion to choose and acquire the Boxer infantry fighting vehicles," said Lithuania's defense chief Jonas Vytautas Zukas. [...] The three Baltic states and Poland have also called for a permanent NATO presence in the region to deter Russia, but the allies have so far stuck to back-to-back troop rotations. ...

    I saw this headline at Drudge and immediately went over to check titled “Study: Nagging By A Spouse Could Shorten Your Life”: NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It is a part of marriage that everyone loathes – the occasional or, in some cases, constant nagging between spouses.And as CBS 2’s Scott Rapoport reported Friday, word has now come that nagging is not only annoying, but can even be life-threatening.Ask any married guy on the planet and he’ll tell you, as one man told CBS 2, nagging is “not pleasant.”But now a new study suggests husbands of nagging wives can actually...

    NY Women's Issues Examiner ^ | May 17, 2012 | by Heather Lawton
    The New York chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) is asking people to protest Rush Limbaugh's hateful dialogue against women. Fed up with what the organization calls Rush"isms", on Friday, May 18th, 2012, NOW-NYC is asking women all across the country to join their protest campaigning for WABC to discontinue Limbaugh's radio show. Rush Limbaugh is a reminder of the characters television producer of the 1970's, Norman Lear, created--bigots who were always too stupid to fear. Not to say that bigots can never be dangerous (Hitler is an example that they can be), but for the most part,...

    Start listening to Rush Limbaugh. That was the message representatives from Media Matters for America and the National Organization for Women delivered to NOW chapter leaders in a secret, narrowly focused strategy session Wednesday night. In audio of the NOW/MMFA strategy webinar obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, the liberal organizations plotted the best ways to get the radio giant and veritable burr in their collective saddles off the air. Go after the local advertisers The key, according to Media Matters online outreach director Jay Carmona, is to target Limbaugh at the local level specifically advertisers in local radio...
  • Women in the U.S. Military: Growing Share, Distinctive Profile

    Pew Research Center ^ | 12/22/11 | Eileen Patten and Kim Parker
    The women who serve in todays military differ from the men who serve in a number of ways. Compared with their male counterparts, a greater share of military women are black and a smaller share are married. Also, women veterans of the post-9/11 era are less likely than men to have served in combat and more likely to be critical of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In other ways, however, military women are not different from military men: they are just as likely to be officers; they joined the armed services for similar reasons; and post-9/11 veterans of both...

    One of presidential candidate Michele Bachmanns major political opponents is defending her against what it says is blatant sexism on the part of Newsweek magazine. Monday, the National Organization for Women (NOW) spoke out against Newsweeks most recent cover, which features an extreme close-up of Michele Bachmann and the title The Queen of Rage. Its sexist, NOW president Terry ONeill told TheDC. Casting her in that expression and then adding The Queen of Rage I think [it is]. Gloria Steinem has a very simple test: If this were done to a man or would it ever be done to a...

    Tuesday is Equal Pay Dayso dubbed by the National Committee for Pay Equity, which represents feminist groups including the National Organization for Women, Feminist Majority, the National Council of Women's Organizations and others. The day falls on April 12 because, according to feminist logic, women have to work that far into a calendar year before they earn what men already earned the year before. In years past, feminist leaders marked the occasion by rallying outside the U.S. Capitol to decry the pernicious wage gap and call for government action to address systematic discrimination against women. This year will be relatively...
  • Women's Rights Must Be Guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution [The National Organization for Women]

    Women's Rights Must Be Guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution We won't stand for sexists like Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia interpreting women's rights as unprotected in the U.S. Constitution. In a recent interview, Scalia erroneously stated that women are not protected under the 14th Amendment's Equal Protection Clause. Right now, five justices have the power to pick and choose when women should be considered full citizens. And that's not right. We need to add an Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution that will guarantee women and men equal status under the law. I stand with NOW today to demand that...

    US women's groups Thursday were bracing for a fight over abortion rights and gender equality with the new conservative majority in Congress. "We now face an anti-choice majority and a new speaker of the House who will threaten to roll back hard-fought progress for women," said Terry O'Neill, president of the National Organization for Women (NOW), the largest women's group in the United States. Republicans by Wednesday had picked up 60 seats in the 435-seat House of Representatives, well more than the 39 they needed for a majority. At least 49 of the newcomers to the House are opposed to...

    President Obama Breaks Faith with Women Statement of NOW President Terry O'Neill March 21, 2010 The National Organization for Women is incensed that President Barack Obama agreed today to issue an executive order designed to appease a handful of anti-choice Democrats who have held up health care reform in an effort to restrict women's access to abortion. Through this order, the president has announced he will lend the weight of his office and the entire executive branch to the anti-abortion measures included in the Senate bill, which the House is now prepared to pass. President Obama campaigned as a pro-choice...

    Rush's Disdain for Humanity is Showing Again Offender: Rush Limbaugh on the Rush Limbaugh Radio Show Media Outlet: Aired on radio stations nationwide 2/25/10 - syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks, a subsidiary of Clear Channel Communications The Offense: To illustrate the need for health care reform, Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) told the story of a woman who wore dentures that had belonged to her late sister. Rush Limbaugh called it the "sob story of the day" and joked, "what's wrong with using a dead person's teeth? Aren't the Democrats big into recycling? . . . So if you don't have...
  • Tim Tebow the Abuser and His Poor, Defenseless Mom (These feminists are not serious people.")

    As we all know by now, there was outrage among feminists about CBS allowing the Tim Tebow ad to air during the Superbowl. But that was only the beginning. After the National Organization of Indoctrinated Women saw the commercial and realized it was actually benign, they needed something else to complain about so they came up with this outlandish notion: I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it, she said. Thats what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I...

    The National Organization's for Women's (NOW) attack on the Tebow Super Bowl ad as glorifying violence appears odd at first, but it is not unexpected coming from an organization like theirs. It is common, in fact, for liberal feminists groups to help institute mandatory arrest laws and primary aggressor doctrines in the area of domestic violence. Take for example how the Department of Public Safety's Maine Criminal Justice Academy instructs their police officers who to arrest in different domestic disputes. It is important to keep in mind the examples are written in a bias fashion in favor of the woman's...

    Mad Men sure are angry at women. Advertising execs unleashed their fury Sunday night, one lady-hating Super Bowl commercial at a time. From Bridgestone tires to Dodge cars to Bud Light, it was bros vs. hos on the boob tube, with ads depicting women as spine-stealing nags.

    I've been waiting all day to unload this, so sit down and get ready for a good belly-laugh... Remember Susan Estrich? She was Michael Dukakis' campaign manager for his disastrous presidential run in 1988. But washed-up liberals don't shrivel up and blow away, they reinvent themselves as pundits and news analysts. Apparently Ms. Estrich, the Grand-Dame of feminist victimology, has taken great offense at Apple Computer's decision to name its newest electronic gizmo, iPad. So last week she penned a column called "The Value of Diversity." Blazing away with her gendered six-shooter, Estrich issued this scathing pronouncement: "Is there a...

    An Army general in Iraq backed away from his threat today to court martial female soldiers who get pregnant. "I see absolutely no circumstance where I would punish a female soldier by court martial for a violation ... none," Maj. Gen. Anthony Cucolo III wrote to ABC News in an exclusive statement. " I fully intend to handle these cases through lesser disciplinary action." Cucolo triggered debate, some of it angry, when his Nov. 4 policy forbidding pregnancy among his soldiers became public recently. His policy statement said violation of the rule could be punishable by court martial, and that...

    Dear xxxx xxxxxx, The elections held Tuesday should open all of our eyes. Please meet the new Governor of Virginia: [The] " dynamic new trend of working women and feminists ... is ultimately detrimental to the family." You read that right -- the new Governor of Virginia thinks working women are "detrimental" to the family. If you're scared that it might get worse in 2010 -- and you should be -- well, I have a way you can help fight these right-wing extremists who'd like to take over our government. NOW is committed to making sure women's voices are heard...
