    Democrats love to portray themselves as the party of women. The website proclaims proudly, “We are committed to ensuring full equality for women.” Yet this past week, House Democrats voted unanimously to, appropriating a phrase from Joe Biden, put women back in chains. Not as slaves, but in competitive sports, giving them second class stature by tilting the playing field so far askew that most women will fall off the field and be unable to compete fairly in sports. The US House of Representatives passed the Equality Act, “which would require schools to include male athletes who identify as...

    Full title: Man who threatened to kill ‘as many girls as I see’ because he was repeatedly rejected set to be spared jail A man who threatened to murder “as many girls” as he could see may escape a jail sentence, despite pleading guilty to a charge of attempted threat of terrorism. Christopher Cleary wrote a detailed Facebook post about how he planned to become “the next mass shooter” in January 2019. The 27-year-old described himself as a virgin who had never had a girlfriend. He also said he wanted to make the fact that so many women had turned...
  • Why do Dems think they have the authority and right to regulate gender on high school sports teams?

    When Democrats in the House aren’t using their majority status to ceaselessly pester and harass POTUS Donald Trump, which is often, they are spending their political capital on activism rather than legislation that would advance the success and status of our constitutional republic. That was in evidence again last week as the House passed (with eight Republicans) a bill that will, if it becomes law, destroy female sporting events in high school. First, a little background. In the early 1970s, Congress passed a series of Educational Amendments that included a section called Title IX. According to (yeah, I know,...
  • Where women call the shots

    Full Intro: Where women call the shots The nation’s first majority-female legislature is currently meeting in Nevada. Carson City may never be the same. She didn’t plan to say it. Yvanna Cancela, a newly elected Democrat in the Nevada Senate, didn’t want to “sound crass.” But when a Republican colleague defended a century-old law requiring doctors to ask women seeking abortions whether they’re married, Cancela couldn’t help firing back. “A man is not asked his marital status before he gets a vasectomy,” she countered — and the packed hearing room fell silent. Since Nevada seated the nation’s first majority-female state...

  • Dear Media: Women Made the Alabama Abortion Law Happen

    05/18/2019 3:10:31 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 16 replies ^ | May 18, 2019 | Katie Yoder
    Twenty-five white males are responsible for Alabama’s new abortion legislation, according to the news media. But, if Americans look more closely, they’ll find that’s a blatant miscalculation. Women – pro-life women – are the driving force.The “Alabama Human Life Protection Act,” or HB 314, considers abortion and abortion attempts felony offenses, except in cases where it’s done “to prevent a serious health risk to the unborn child’s mother.” The law acknowledges that women are victims of abortion and “will not be held criminally culpable or civilly liable.” On Wednesday, HB 314, which was sponsored by a woman, was signed into...

    The House voted 236-173 Friday to pass Democrats’ Equality Act, pushed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “This is not about tolerance,” Pelosi said in a video posted to Twitter. “This is about respect for our LGBTQ communities, this is about taking pride.” “We won the fight in the House today, and we will continue until we see these protections become law,” House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., tweeted moments after the bill passed. The bill, which is not expected to pass the Senate due to its Republican majority, adds sexual orientation and gender identity to characteristics—race, color, religion, sex, or...

    A dog named Ping Pong is being hailed as a hero in Thailand for helping save the life of a newborn baby after the infant's 15-year-old mother tried to hide the birth by burying the boy alive. Ping Pong's owner Usa Nisaika went to check the commotion and found an infant's leg poking up from where the dog was scratching. Nisaika frantically dug up the 5.2-lbs baby and took him to the hospital where doctors said the infant hadn't suffered any serious injuries. Nisaika says everyone in the village is amazed by Ping Pong's actions and says "he is a...

    Liberal women call conservative women names.....stupid, uneducated, beauty but dumb, unaware of "white privilege"? Are they jealous that they look like Rachel Maddow, Elizabeth Warren (sorry I don't want to be mean) instead of the attractive conservative women we see (Kate Upton, etc.) Conservative women don't brag about abortions, etc. like liberal women do. Do you think that is why they are so jealous, angry?

    Nike contracts for its sponsored athletes have financially penalized women for decreases in performance while they were pregnant. The sports giant admitted to past 'performance-based payment reductions' in a statement on Monday, after the New York Times published an op-ed by professional track star Alysia Montańo. Montańo grabbed attention in 2014 for running in the US Track and Field Championships in Sacramento while eight months pregnant to national praise, but she didn't much have a choice as she private struggled to keep money coming in. 'Sports take a heavy toll on the human body, and sponsors accommodate this with time...
  • University Dubs Conservative Women Two-Fifths Of A Person

    Feminists often decry the “fact” that women earn 77 cents for every dollar a man makes. Despite the flaws in the studies upon which this statistic is based, the idea of treating a human as less than four-fifths of a person appalls them. Similarly, while ignoring political context, feminists decry the “fact” that our founders were racists by complaining that they considered blacks to be three-fifths of a person. Yet feminist administrators at UNC-Wilmington (a.k.a. “The Dub”) recently ruled that conservative women are less than one-half of a person. Unlike the feminists, I can bolster that accusation with facts and...

    This is a subject that’s been coming up more and more lately, not that you’ll see much of it on cable news. It’s the question of whether or not competitive female sports organizations, both scholastic and otherwise, should allow “transgender women” (who were born male) to compete against natural, biological women. Most recently we looked at a transgender powerlifter who broke four world records at a single competition but later had those titles rejected because he was determined to be a male by the commission overseeing the sport. So are Americans paying attention to this debate? And if so, how...

    Here’s a fact you may not have considered before: Women HAVE IT MADE. Granted, I’ve never been accused of having perfect timing, but truly, what better time IS there to publish a politically incorrect article about the ladies than the day after Mother’s Day, when we’ve all just justifiably celebrated the indispensable role women and mothers have in raising society’s next generation? There’s no better time, obviously, so let’s dive in!I’ll admit that, notwithstanding the title of this article, being a woman, particularly one with a leftist worldview, does come with its own unique set of challenges. Imagine what it must...

    Over the past two days, nearly every major media outlet reported that the Trump administration either objected to or "diluted" a United Nations resolution condemning rape as a weapon of war. "US threatens to veto UN resolution on rape as weapon of war, officials say," a headline from The Guardian read. "UN waters down rape resolution to appease US's hardline abortion stance," read a second article in The Guardian. "United States dilutes UN rape-in-war resolution," read the headline from the BBC. "Trump administration forces UN to water down resolution opposing rape in war," was the headline from the Independent. "The...

    Pam Keith, a former Democrat candidate for Congress in Florida, is openly calling for women to stop having sex with conservative men.____ Keith jumped to her Twitter account with the quixotic demand that women should boycott sexual relations with all conservative men: Ladies: STOP having sex w/conservative men TOTAL COMPLETE SEX BOYCOTT. Don’t let them anywhere near you. Give them the hand and keep it moving. Get a B.O.B. But make it a rule to run, not walk, from men who want to steal your agency over yourself & your life. That’s it.

    Democrats claim to be the party of women. They claim to represent minorities and their interests. One thing they can't deny: numbers, the cold, hard data. Federal Election Commission (FEC) filing data has shown that more women donated to President Donald Trump's campaign in the first quarter of the year than any of the 2020 Democrats. 10,375 women donated to Trump. The Democrat who came in behind Trump was Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), but even then she only had 3,850 women donate to her campaign. According to the Center for Responsive Politics' website, Open Secrets, the majority of Trump's female...

    Many Democratic voters are worried that a female candidate cannot win the presidency in 2020. "I don't think they're strong enough to carry it for themselves," an Iowa voter told The Washington Post. Amber Phillips reports that "female politicians are held by voters to a much higher standard than men," and points to polls showing that today's support for Elizabeth Warren (12 percent) and Kamala Harris (8 percent) drops to low single digits when voters are asked who is likely to defeat President Donald Trump. Without denying that some people may harbor misogynistic feelings, and that many Democrats may indeed...
