Yes, Katherine Clark, there really is a war on women, but it’s not the fantasy you’ve been spinning out on the campaign trail.The real war on women is being prosecuted by misogynist Democrat hacks attacking and harassing women and getting away with it because they’re in a protected class — moonbats.Let’s run down this year’s list of Democratic warriors against women — Elliot (“Client No. 9”) Spitzer, Carlos Danger, ex-San Diego mayor Bob Filner, Martin Bashir, New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, not to mention a bunch of lesser-known New York Democratic ward heelers who’ve been smashing glasses in their girlfriends’ faces, demanding their staffers don’t wear panties, etc.

Three members of a so-called ´Muslim Patrol´ were today jailed at the Old Bailey for repeatedly trying to enforce Sharia law in East London. Jordan Horner and another Islamic extremist told one couple they could not hold hands while walking down the street, because it was in a ´Muslim area´. The radicals also attacked a group of men drinking in the road, and told a woman she would face ´hell fire´ because of the way she was dressed. Horner, 19, Ricardo MacFarlane, 36, and a 23-year-old man who cannot be named for legal reasons were sentenced to 68 weeks, 12

DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s

A primary school has banned Enid Blyton children´s stories so it could win a race equality award. The Famous Five classics were dumped because they had ´inappropriate ethnic stereotypes´ with references to gypsies, golliwogs and a dog with a name starting with ´N´. [Snip] Two of the offending stories were Blyton´s Five Go To Mystery Moor and The Children of Kidillin. The much-loved author wrote more than 600 books before her death in 1968. In the 1990s some of her stories were edited to remove parts that were considered racist, sexist or anti-Semitic. Deputy head Phil Clarke said many of

LONDON — Scores of flights were delayed or canceled at Britain´s busiest airports Saturday because of a technical problem at a main air traffic control center. National Air Traffic Service, which controls the crowded airspace over England, said it was having a problem switching between nighttime and busier daytime operations at its control center in Swanwick, southern England. Spokeswoman Juliet Kennedy said the glitch was preventing staff opening new control positions to deal with busier daytime traffic, meaning the service was struggling to handle the volume of flights.

Raising concerns about consumer privacy, California´s health exchange has given insurance agents the names and contact information for tens of thousands of people who went online to check out coverage but didn´t ask to be contacted. The Covered California exchange said it started handing out this consumer information this week as part of a pilot program to help people enroll ahead of a Dec. 23 deadline to have health insurance in place by Jan. 1.State officials said they are only trying to help potential customers find insurance and sign up in time.

Big Brother may be watching you. But Glenn Greenwald is watching Big Brother. That´s not a bad take on how the 46-year-old constitutional-law attorney turned crusading journalist turned thorn in the side of the NSA might describe his mission. At least in part. Greenwald is doing more than just watching. By combing through the tens of thousands of classified NSA documents leaked to him by Edward Snowden -- and publishing in newspapers around the globe report after report on the secretive agency´s mass-spying activities -- he´s got the whole world watching too.

The Maryland official who directly oversaw the rollout of Maryland’s health insurance exchange resigned Friday amid continuing technical problems that have hampered the state’s online enrollment efforts.After an emergency session Friday night, the board of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange accepted the resignation of Rebecca Pearce, its executive director, and thanked her in a statement for working “tirelessly and with tremendous dedication” for more than two years.

Ray Frazee said he can still remember the enemy plane coming straight at him as he stood on the deck of the USS Argonne docked in Pearl Harbor more than seven decades ago today. “It feels like you’re still there, you’ll never forget something like that,” the 92-year-old Wellesley man told the Herald yesterday. “One of my very best friends was killed that day,” he added, saying he notified the parents about their son’s death. Today marks the 72nd anniversary of the attack on the Hawaiian naval base where about 2,400 Americans were killed during that day of infamy in 1941. Frazee, a flute

ALBANY, NY –A New York-built American fighter that´s one of the few remaining still-airworthy planes to survive the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor is being donated to a Massachusetts-based organization that flies World War II aircraft at living history events across the nation. Robert Collings, executive director of the Stow, Massachusetts-based Collings Foundation, said that the purchase of the Curtiss P-40B Warhawk from an aviation museum in England was completed this week.

OBSERVATION POST OUELLETTE, South Korea— U.S. Vice President Joe Biden stepped foot into the no-man´s land between North and South Korea on Saturday, peering out at the furtive nation hours after it released an American tourist the regime had detained for more than a month. Surrounded on three sides by North Korea, Biden and his granddaughter, Finnegan, looked through binoculars at the enemy soil less than 100 feet away. On the other side of the demarcation line, North Korean troops could be seen staring back. "Welcome to the edge of freedom," said Lt. Col. Daniel Edwan of the U.N. Command

Nelson Mandela is being rightly eulogized as a great force for peace and freedom. Though a deeply flawed man, his moral growth allowed him to voluntarily relinquish power, much the same as George Washington. This is an example being taken to heart on the African continent, which may now be fitfully entering a more hopeful era, in contrast to the 50-year bloody disaster of post-colonialism. What won´t be talked about much is that this was only possible because the West won the Cold War and allowed disillusioned Marxists like Mandela in South Africa (or Gorbachev in the Soviet Union) to

An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained in North Korea for more than a month for alleged hostile acts is on his way home after being "deported" to China. North Korean state media said Saturday that 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. "I´m very glad to be on my

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said Friday that the enrollment records for roughly a quarter of all the people who signed up for health insurance on its website in October and November could contain errors, raising questions about whether those consumers would get coverage in time to pay for their medical care next month. Even now, the administration said, it may be sending incomplete or erroneous information to insurers for one in every 10 people who enroll. The disclosure added yet another complication to a long list of technical troubles that have hampered the rollout of President Obama’s health care

One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that

The World Trade Organization´s first comprehensive agreement involves an effort to simplify the procedures for doing business across borders. There will also be improved duty-free access for goods sold by the world´s poorest countries. The deal, which could add about $1tn to world trade, gives developing nations more scope to increase farm subsidies.

Senior defense officials are defending the decision to have fighter jets escort St. Nick this year on the North American Air Defense Command’s Santa tracker website. The NORAD website each December posts videos of Santa Claus entering different countries and cities around the world. This year, some of the videos will show fighter planes escorting the sleigh, a decision that has drawn criticism from the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood and others. But a senior defense official traveling this week with Secretary Chuck Hagel as he visited Bahrain said the military escorts for Santa are necessary given “the proliferation of air defense

This week Vice President Joe Biden found himself in a tense situation as he visited Japan, China and, currently, South Korea. What was meant to be a routine visit to the three countries turned into a diplomatic peace keeping mission regarding China´s expanded air zone, and the media there has been keeping tabs on how well Biden´s doing. Japan and South Korea are upset with China because it expanded its air zone into their air zones on November 23. China thinks Japan started it — it being the escalation of tensions — but the world points out that China announced

At a fundraiser in Seattle on the day before Thanksgiving, President Obama told a group of Democratic donors, apparently without a hint of irony, “I’m not a particularly ideological person.” One wouldn’t know it from the ponderous 48-minute oration on income inequality that he delivered in Washington on Wednesday. Mr. Obama devoted the majority of it to the cause of lamenting a “dangerous and growing inequality and lack of upward mobility” that he says is jeopardizing the middle class. The unraveling of the “social compact,” he said, began in the late ‘70s. “The result is an economy that’s become profoundly unequal,
