    Has this been previously reported? If not, it’s something of a bombshell . . . On today’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski said that, after the election, Ivanka Trump hired someone Brzezinski had “brought to her” as an advisor on “women’s issues.” Mika Brzezinski: the liberal who at the beginning of the 2016 primary season was urging Elizabeth Warren to run. Mika, who when Warren made it clear she wasn’t running, jumped on the Bernie bandwagon. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Bill Clinton made his speaking debut on the 2016 campaign trail Monday by telling voters about the softer side of his wife, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton. In a speech at the Nashua Community College in New Hampshire, Clinton told stories about the early days of their relationship. "I thought she was the most amazing person," he said, describing the two meeting and falling in love nearly 45 years ago. "Everything she touched, she made better," he said. Clinton hit Republicans presidential candidates, though not by name, saying the entire field is "kind of scary." Clinton's understated speech marked the...

    Turning his horns on another female critic, front-running GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump ripped surging Republican challenger Carly Fiorina, claiming she has "zero chance" of winning and is somebody who gives him "a massive headache." In a tweet following Fiorina's latest hit on Trump's "offensive" comments about Fox debate host Megyn Kelly, Trump said: "I just realized that if you listen to Carly Fiorina for more than ten minutes straight, you develop a massive headache. She has zero chance!" Fiorina surged the most after the debate, jumping to fourth place in a new NBC News Online Poll conducted by SurveyMonkey....

    The father of a White House advance team member connected to the Secret Service prostitution scandal was refunded a hefty Obama campaign donation, records show, around the same time additional details about that possible link were made public. The $20,000 donation was made by Leslie Dach -- whose son Jonathan has been linked to the scandal -- on Sept. 19, 2012, to the Obama Victory Fund.

    The White House had information two years ago indicating that one of their advance travel volunteers, the son of a major Democratic donor with ties to the White House, was involved in the Secret Service prostitution scandal. That former aide now works for the State Department's Office on Global Women's Issues. State recommends a "zero-tolerance" government policy on prostitution even when, as in this case, it is legal in the country in question. The Washington Post published a blockbuster story Wednesday night which alleges that 25-year-old Jonathan Dach, a White House volunteer working on the advance travel team for the...

    Republican men in Congress “aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be” when it comes to running against female candidates and appealing to female voters, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Thursday. “We’re trying to get them to be a little more sensitive,” Boehner said at his weekly Capitol press conference. “You look around the Congress, there are a lot more females in the Democratic caucus than there are in the Republican caucus. And some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be.” The Speaker was responding to a question about an article in Politico reporting that...

    Last night, President Obama presented himself as a crusader for women's issues. He later tweeted:  Mitt Romney still won’t say whether he’d stand up for equal pay, but he did tell us he has “binders full of women.” OFA.BO/LMVWmZ— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) October 17, 2012 What's interesting about this is President Obama's own history with women in the work place.When one of President Obama's debate coaches, Anita Dunn, worked at the White House, this is what she reportedly had to say about her experience there: “This place would be in court for a hostile workplace. ... Because it actually fit all of...

    Excuse me people, I'm going to talk with strong words about women's issues. I realized that violent is not only coming from men but also coming from women themselves like mother to her daughter , or sister to her sister..but the worse one is that coming from the other gender (male), the problem here in our community especially in those closed-minded societies; that woman is a piece of furniture & if she will ask for her rights they would be judge her as a bad person, that she wouldn't obey to manly societies!!! [...] When I talked to women who...

    Family Research Council recognizes and respects the inherent dignity of every human life from conception (whether by natural or artificial means) until death. FRC desires to help build a culture of life, holding that all human life is a gift to be treasured. The life of every human being is an intrinsic good, not something whose value is conditional upon its usefulness to others or to the state.Threats to human life include abortion, euthanasia, and many new forms of biotechnology. However, human beings need not prove their moral worth by demonstrating sentience, or self-awareness, or a certain level of cognitive...

    JAKARTA (Reuters) - A small group of Indonesians in their late 40s who attended the same elementary school in central Jakarta recently gathered for a reunion and to pledge their support for an absent former classmate -- Barack Obama. Obama's late mother came to Indonesia with her young son in the late 1960s to join her second husband knowing next to nothing about the huge, developing Southeast Asian nation. While her son left after four years to study in Hawaii, for the Kansas-born mother of the Democratic Party presidential hopeful the relationship with Indonesia was to grow into a lifetime...

    Legislative and social reform ploys, ranging from affirmative action to state sponsored quota mandates for female placement in the public sector, have stripped away any semblance of professional credibility that modern women can gain. Feigning equality for all, these policies have allowed society to swap meritocracy and individual responsibility for socialism, and to women’s financial, professional, social and personal detriment.

    Have pity on Barbara Walters. Barbara Walters is, after all, Barbara Walters. And Barbara Walters should not be made to suffer the gross indignity of flying in first class while a common woman breast-feeds her baby. Barbara Walters for those few of you left on the remote islands of Fiji who don't know who she is is a world-famous, Very Important Person. She has, according to her official bio, "arguably interviewed more statesmen and stars than any other journalist in history. She is so well known that her name and a brief biography is (sic) listed in the American Heritage...

    This week I had planned to write a column about Sinn Fein, the political front organization for the Irish Republican Army, whose leaders have recently been linked to acts of murder and grand larceny. I chose the subject because I wrote often about the IRA while living in Britain in the 1990s, because I've worked as a reporter in Belfast, because it's timely -- tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day -- and because there might be lessons in the story for Hamas and Hezbollah, terrorist groups that may or may not be able to make the transition to democratic politics as...
