    Obama Gives Radical Feminist Steinem Medal of Freedom President Obama said that Gloria Steinem “changed how women thought about themselves.” He also labeled her a “game-changer,” a “disrupter,” and a “champion noticer.” Obama stated, “She’s alert to all the ways, large and small, that women had been and, in some cases, continue to be treated unfairly just because they’re women… because of her work, across America and around the world, more women are afforded the respect and opportunities that they deserve.” Obama did not mention Steinem’s disdain for heterosexual relationships (Steinem infamously remarked that “a woman without a man is...

    Feminist activist Gloria Steinem and several chapters of the National Organization for Women (NOW) have condemned the Democratic National Committee for “discrimination against mothers with young children” during the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. “Women are the key to a Democratic victory, and sometimes, children are the key to women,” Steinem said in a statement. “It’s both right and smart for the Democratic Convention to behave as if children exist.” The NOW chapters of Southern California — including Hollywood, Long Beach-South Bay, Pacific Shore and Palm Spring — voiced concern this week that the Democratic National Convention will not...

    President Obama said Thursday that his administration has loaned billions to start-up high tech firms like the now-bankrupt solar firm Solyndra based not on political influence, but "on the merits." "I have confidence decisions were made based upon what's good for the American people," Obama said in a press conference Thursday in response to questions from ABC News senior White House correspondent Jake Tapper. "There were going to be some companies that did not work out. Solyndra was one of them." The president addressed multiple questions Thursday about Solyndra, the first recipient of a government loan under a program to...

Dailyn Campbell, a 16-year-old quarterback for Kenton High, and 17-year-old teammate Jesse Howard will serve their time in a juvenile detention center. They were also...

    LIMA, Peru - When the body of Claudina Herrera was discovered nearly five months ago by the side of a highway, curled in the fetal position in a cardboard box, the cause of death was obvious: The pregnant 18-year-old's belly was sliced wide open, and her baby was gone. Within days, her premature girl was located in intensive care at a public hospital, and the woman who had shown up with the baby _ covered in blood and saying she had given birth in a taxi _ was arrested along with four others. She was later found to be infertile....

    WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- A recent fund-raising letter from the National Organization for Women is requesting money for what it calls an "emergency campaign to preserve abortion rights."

The petition urges Daschle to continue his obstruction of pro-life federal judges nominated by President George W. Bush. NOW asks the Democratic leader to "use the filibuster whenever it is needed." The Senate minority leader is currently blocking nearly a dozen judges, some for over two years. Republicans have promised more...
