  • Barbra Streisand: The Sexism in American Politics (Fighting “Outright Sexism” To Become President)

    Huffington Post ^ | March 25, 2016 | Barbra Streisand
    Why is it that today even a woman as impressive as Hillary Clinton is judged not by her merits and extensive resume alone, but held to a pernicious double standard? Twenty-two years ago, I had the honor of introducing Hillary Clinton at a Humanitarian Award dinner, given by The Elie Wiesel Foundation. I said of her then and it holds true today, "There is no one in this country who would deny the competence, intellect, stamina, warmth and courage of Hillary Rodham Clinton... But the criticism of Hillary Clinton has again demonstrated that the strong, competent woman is still a...

    Brietbart ^ | December 12, 2015 | Kipp Jones
    Speaking at an event for women in Los Angeles this week, Barbra Streisand complained that society is so misogynistic, even female laboratory mice are being discriminated against. "Gender discrimination drives me crazy," said the multiple Grammy and Academy award-winning actress and singer. "Women are still treated as second-class citizens when it comes to equal pay in the workplace and equal representation in Congress." [Snip] Streisand, who has made contributions toward heart disease research for nearly three decades, then spoke out about gender inequality in medical research. "Gender inequality even extends to mice in the labs," she said. "They're all male!"...

Their toasts marked the high point of an evening notable for its strict adherence to the protocol and symbolism valued in Chinese culture, but which, at the same time, managed to fulfill the Chinese delegation's request for a thoroughly American dinner party. Guests dined on a meal of pear salad, lobster, ribeye steak and...

    Barbra Streisand may not be the brightest star in Hollywood. In fact, sometimes you look into her eyes and get the feeling someone else is driving. The starlet, who once compared President Obama to “kings” and “gods,” penned a March 30 commentary in the Huffington Post singing the praises of the president for “creating” so many jobs in the last five-and-a-half years. The piece, titled, “Have you heard the good news?,” promptly heaps praise on Obama: “In the wake of the financial crisis, President Obama took the helm of a sinking economic ship and help to right it. The unemployment...

    Streisand has a new album out of her old hits as duets, called "Partners." She didn't drag out her classic Democratic Party version of "The Way We Were." But her rabid partisanship is getting the better of her on The Huffington Post, dragging out the silly canard that "Republican budget cuts" stopped an Ebola vaccine. She was pleading with women to turn out and vote for liberals, since they're so much smarter than men.

After losing his $800 per month apartment in 2011, the 41-year-old now lives on the streets and sleeps in vacant lots not 80 miles from his millionaire showbiz family's home.

First, in a TimesTalks discussion, John Cameron Mitchell revealed how David Letterman refused to shake his hand after a performance of Hedwig and Angry Inch more than 15 years ago. Now, playwright Larry Kramer is charging Barbara Streisand with saying she finds gay sex “distasteful.” Kramer has been trying to get his play The Normal Heart made into a movie since it first appeared Off-Broadway in 1985.

A union-organizing committee at the liberal group released a statement Monday slamming their employers for “the unexpected and unexplained path our leadership has taken in response to our efforts to unionize,” adding that “the actions of Media Matters executives have placed employees in the impossible position of continuing to produce content espousing pro-labor values for an employer who is challenging our right to unionize.”

The night was split into two glitzy events, a reception and dinner costing $28,500 each at the Greystone Mansion, followed by entertainment by Streisand at the nearby Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel. About 250 people were expected at the dinner and about 800 at the entertainment, which cost $2,500 a ticket.

    Israel says Barbara Streisand has pulled out of a celebration of the country's 60th anniversary next month. Streisand was one of the big-name guests slated to appear at a festive Jerusalem convention hosted by President Shimon Peres beginning May 13. The American diva was supposed to perform a rendition of the Hebrew prayer Avinu Malkeinu, or Our Father Our King. But Peres' office says Streisand has now announced she will not be coming. It says she gave no reason for the sudden cancellation. The anniversary convention's guest list still includes heads of state like U.S. President George W. Bush and...

    <p>When Barbra Streisand finished recording Christmas Memories on Sept. 7, she was satisfied that the album echoed depth and drama that went beyond a cozy celebration of the holiday season.</p> <p>Four days later, those sentiments of love, friendship and selflessness took on an even broader reach. Like U2's All That You Can't Leave Behind, Enya's A Day Without Rain and other uplifting music released before Sept. 11, Christmas Memories attained profound, and even prophetic, shadings in the wake of the terror attacks.</p>

    Streisand pitches in as leaders write checks to defense fundsBy Susan Crabtree Posted: 02/04/08 06:38 PM [ET] For lawmakers faced with mounting legal bills, itÂ’s good to have friends in high places with deep pockets. Members of the leadership on both sides of the aisle cut checks to legally embattled House colleagues, and even Barbra Streisand contributed $1,000 to Rep. Jim McDermottÂ’s (D-Wash.) legal expense fund. Rep. William Jefferson (D-La.), who will face trial late this month on an array of bribery and corruption charges, has collected a total of $166,550 since 2005 to help defray legal costs. Members of...

    CNN's Jack Cafferty, who made his anti-Iraq war, anti-Bush administration stance clear on Monday's "The Situation Room," rolled his eyes at Barbara Streisand's endorsement of Hillary Clinton on Tuesday's program. His characterization of the news: "Reclusive, neurotic, over-the-hill vocalist endorses Hillary. I mean, is the ground supposed to shake now, and lightning bolts fly out of the sky. Who cares!?" Cafferty made the comments just before the top of the 5 pm Eastern hour of Tuesday's "The Situation Room." Two minutes earlier, as part of the "Political Ticker" feature on CNN, host Wolf Blitzer read a brief about the sometimes-retired...

    Female mice apparently become as randy as males after their senses of smell are tampered with, ending up aggressively trying to mount any mouse that moves, research now reveals.

In many animals, the vomeronasal organ often helps detect scents. In mice, it especially helps detect pheromones, molecules used to attract the opposite sex and to communicate other signals linked with social behavior, such as parenting or aggression
