  • The Lonely Life of a Republican Woman

    The New York Times ^ | October 27, 2016 | S. E. Cupp
    As has become typical in an election marked by its often unpleasant surprises, I awoke to a storm of outrage on Twitter on Wednesday morning. Newt Gingrich had told Fox’s Megyn Kelly that she was “fascinated with sex” and didn’t “care about public policy.” Mr. Gingrich unleashed this boorish attack after Ms. Kelly tried to pin him down on whether the many accusations of sexual assault against Donald J. Trump, and his own words on the matter, should disqualify him from the presidency. That Mr. Gingrich (with whom I once hosted a television show) thought the best way to deflect...

    The United States has finished behind countries including Algeria and Kazakhstan in a new ranking of the best and worst countries in which to be a girl. The report compiled by Save the Children suggested Sweden was the best place for young females to live. Niger finished at the bottom. The U.S. was rated 32nd on the 144-country list. Not all rich countries are doing as well as they could for their girls, according to the non-governmental organization. It singled out the U.S. in particular. "There are things where we do not shine on the U.S. side," said Carolyn Miles,...

    U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is standing by his support of Donald Trump following the release of a 2005 clip showing the Republican presidential nominee speaking lewdly about women.  Cruz, who endorsed Trump in September after a months-long holdout, was asked Monday by an interviewer in Muleshoe if he was "still backing the Republican candidate for president, Donald J. Trump."  "I am supporting the Republican nominee because I think Hillary Clinton is an absolute disaster," Cruz replied.

    Boston, MA — The Boston Globe is reporting that two more women have come forward to accuse former Planned Parenthood abortionist Roger Ian Hardy of sexually molesting them at a fertility clinic where he once worked. Roger Ian Hardy was forced to surrender his Massachusetts medical license in January 2014, after 18 witnesses came forward in 2004 to testify against him about his inappropriate sexual behavior not only with his patients, but also female members of his staff. This salacious scandal covered in technicolor-detail in a three-part expose published by the Boston Globe. Now the Globe is also reporting that...

    Women don’t have the capacity to receive the sacrament of holy orders because they lack maleness. That is the case for both the priesthood and the diaconate. Not male? No ordination.During the during his flight back to Rome from these USA, Pope Francis was asked by a female reporter if there could be women priests.Of course, the Pope said “No.” He said “No.” again, of course.Over at the non-Catholic National Schismatic Reporter (aka Fishwrap), there is a piece entitled: Francis again rejects women priests without specific reasoning“Without specific reasoning”?Here’s what Francis said: On women priests, that cannot be done.

    Presidential candidate Donald Trump sought to redirect incoming fire at rival Republican Jeb Bush, saying that Bush has a "huge" problem with women and he is by far the better candidate with that demographic. Trump excoriated Bush for saying "I'm not sure we need half a billion dollars for women's health issues" at a speech in Tennessee last week. Bush later said he misspoke, and he was only questioning the federal funding that goes to Planned Parenthood. "This is worse than what Romney did when he blew 47 percent of the vote with his ridiculous statements," Trump said, referencing a...

    A new feminist organization calling itself "Stop Patriarchy" has vowed to destroy "Christian fascist woman-haters," as well as other things it claims oppress women, including Churches and the United States military. Writing on their website, StopPatriarchy.org, the group explains that their goal is to "FIGHT to STOP the enslavement of women." The way to do that, according to the feminist group, is to fight against and destroy oppressors. "Christian fascist woman-haters are violently hacking away at abortion rights and even birth control, slamming women backwards," they explain. Running from June 15 until June 19, the group is running a campaign...

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld Texas’ strict abortion restrictions that could soon leave only seven abortion clinics open in a state of 27 million people. “Not since before Roe v. Wade has a law or court decision had the potential to devastate access to reproductive health care on such a sweeping scale,” said Nancy Northrop, president and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights

    A High Court judge yesterday said immigrant parents should be allowed to slap and hit their children when they are new arrivals in Britain. To the outrage of children’s campaigners, Mrs. Justice Pauffley suggested police and social services should make allowance for foreigners because of the “different cultural context”. Her remarks came in a legal challenge from an Indian accused of beating his wife and seven-year-old son. […] In her ruling, the judge concluded: “I do not believe there was punitively harsh treatment of [the boy] of the kind that would merit the term ‘physical abuse’. Proper allowance must be...

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said this week that he was prepared to sign a measure banning abortion at 20 weeks without an exception for rape or incest because it’s only “in the initial months” that victims are “most concerned” about access to care. Walker, who is expected to announce his run for president at the end of the month, said that such an exception didn’t matter and that he would sign the bill regardless. “I mean, I think for most people who are concerned about that, it’s in the initial months where they’re most concerned about it,” Walker said. “In...

    I mean American women are about to realize American men were the best they ever had it. As I say in the book, even continental Europeans can’t compete. In de Tocqueville, writing about America, he commented on how women are treated with such respect and honor, and no crime is visited with greater severity of sanction then rape in this new country of America — contrasting America’s treatment of rape so severely unfavorable with that in France. Meanwhile, I mean part of the reason I concentrated on it is they’re just kind of arresting, keep you up all night stories...

If he "could have felt like a woman," the Republican former Arkansas governor joked earlier this year, then he could have seen his female classmates without their clothes on. "Now I wish that someone told me that when I was in high school that I could have felt like a woman when it came time to take showers in PE," Huckabee said. "I'm pretty sure that I would have found my feminine side and said, 'Coach, I...

    What do you do if you throw a big party but nobody shows up? That wasn’t quite the case for Hillary Clinton this week, but it was close. It seems that one of her high profile, Big Apple supporters set up a private, “women only” event where the ladies would get some one on one face time with the presumptive Democrat nominee for the bargain basement price of only $2,700. Sadly, as the deadline approached, it became clear that not enough of Gotham’s ladies were up for the trip. Hillary Clinton had trouble attracting high-powered women to a New...

    Left-wing Marxist Sen. Bernie Sanders penned a disgusting anti-woman ‘rape’ screed in ’72, but he’ll probably get away with it because, after all, he’s not a conservative It will be interesting to see what the mainstream media will make of an essay written by avowed socialist (and Democratic presidential contender) Sen. Bernie Sanders in 1972, in which he claimed, among other things, that a woman “fantasizes being raped by three men simultaneously.” Here’s a forecast: Sanders, because he’s on the Left side of politics like the mainstream media, will get a pass. Still, his campaign has already begun trying...

    In anticipation of Hillary Clinton‘s presidential announcement later today, Republican strategist Ana Navarro criticized the former secretary of state for supposedly embracing the idea of a woman president too much. “I don’t need her to drown me in estrogen every time she opens her mouth,” Navarro said on CNN. “Listen, every time she opens her mouth it’s about the granddaughter, and Chelsea’s wedding, and the yoga routines.”Navarro ultimately insisted Clinton “needs to stop being focus-grouped to death.”Watch the video below, via CNN:

    Texas Republicans are trying, yet again, to undermine women's access to reproductive health care in their state, but this time they are getting some pushback from within their own party. On Tuesday, Republican state Rep. Sarah Davis spoke out against the state legislature's attempts to restructure the breast and cervical cancer screening program in the state to exclude Planned Parenthood, as part of the Republicans' endless war on that organization. “I don’t think it is appropriate to continue to fund the women’s health program so that we can make some type of a political statement as Republicans that we care...
