House Republicans remain
determined to ignore women

Washington Post, by James Downie

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/3/2013 4:31:59 PM

2012 was a rough year for the Republican Party’s relationship with women. From Missouri Senate nominee Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” comments to the party’s efforts to cut funding for preventative care (particularly important for women seeking cancer screenings and the like) to Rep. Darrell Issa’s all-male panel on contraception mandates and religious liberty — and the subsequent attacks from Rush Limbaugh and other right-wing voices on Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, whom Issa had barred from the hearing — the GOP repeatedly showed a less-than-impressive concern for women’s

Comments:
The world has truly turned on its axis. Of course, without input from PIAPS on women´s issues, what can be done?

The White House’s Flickr account recently released a photo of President Barack Obama and his top advisers. The complete absence of women in the image is another reminder that females are underrepresented in Obama’s staff.

The world is upside down.

Written by a woman of course - no, wait, this is written by an ignorant lefty man who thinks he can get in good with the ladies if he parrots the non-thinking lefty "War on Women" pap.

There are Republican women in both the House and Senate and no one but the MSM ignores any of them. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, anyone?

Liberals continue to falsely believe ALL women have the values of Code Pink (or academics that claim to be part Cherokee). I think they meant to say Republicans continue to ignore "hairy militant socialist women".

Democrats continue to be at war with females who have not yet emerged from the womb.

They don´t call the GOP the stupid party for nothing. Women will simply no longer tolerate being treated like second class citizens. Akin has become a symbol of what a backward segment of the GOP really stands for - and unless corrected, consciously, it will lead to further losses.

Well, whether or not you want to hear it or believe it, the GOP is perceived as anti-woman by a lot of women. The women I work with said they were insulted by Romney´s comments about single moms (among other things) --many of them were raised by or are single mothers. We´re not going to win over hearts and minds insulting people. It´s stupid.

Agreed, with today´s low information voters (aka morons), perception is everything. The Democrats prevailed with the phony "War on Women", and it evidently worked. So what does the GOP do, opt for abortion on demand and free contraceptives and day care for all?

The GOP will never out-pander the Democrats, on any issue, to any government-dependent voting demographic, ever.

So we´re toast.

Apparently ( and not from this article ), the bill now includes new protections ( ? ) for violence against illegal immigrant women , LGBT and Native American
women attacked on reservations
Cantor objects to language in the bill which gives Native American tribes jurisdiction over rape cases involving non Native Americans .
Currently, federal and state law enforcement have jurisdiction over domestic violence on tribal lands,
Again , not from this article, Cantor has been working with Biden to resolve the issue .
The media does not report accurately and spins to the Democrat´s talking points ,
which always puts the Republicans at a severe disadvantage.

#23, I can just imagine the skewed views from that group about men, husbands and fathers. I´m sure they think they are somehow wiser because they had a screwed up childhood, but the fact is they missed a vital part of family life. They are damaged, not special and certainly not better because they didn´t have responsible parents. Oh well, it´s another new normal, I don´t get.

This article is simply "Rat Droppings"! The D´rats control half the witness list for Issa´s committee. After Maloney´s outburst Issa advised the Rats to put forward new witnesses. But rules are that new witnesses must wait 72 hours til the committe allows if they have useful testimony. Well the rules didn´t suit the Santa party. So they took Trick Pony Fluke to a Democrat organizational meeting and filmed a staged, bogus hearing.

Paris - The French capital is poised to elect its first female mayor this weekend. This historic event was to have taken place after last Sunday’s municipal elections, which Socialist front-runner and deputy mayor Anne Hidalgo was expected to win. But she was upset by another top-tier candidate, who also happens to be a woman, Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, a center-right contender from a prominent political family. Since neither received more than 50 percent of the vote, they will face off on Sunday. The new madame le maire will take over one of the world’s most fabled cities, which, like most other major cities,

NY charter school dispute exposes
fault lines for Dems prior to 2016
Fox News, by Joseph Weber    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/29/2014 6:29:16 PM     Post Reply
The future of the Democrat Party is being charted in New York as its governor and the city´s mayor wage a battle over charter schools that touches on race, unions, Wall Street money and other issues that stand to redefine the party. The divide has largely centered on Gov. Andrew Cuomo´s objection to newly elected New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio´s plan to limit the growth of charter schools. But underneath the public dispute lies larger questions about the party´s long-standing support from teachers unions and the uneasy alliance that politicians -- particularly those eyeing national office -- have with Wall Street.

Washington - A new study gives a big boost to fixing a bad aortic valve, the heart´s main gate, without open-heart surgery. Survival rates were better one year later for people who had a new valve placed through a tube into an artery instead. (Snip) Several hundred thousand Americans have a bad aortic valve, which can stiffen and narrow with age, keeping blood from passing through as it should.

Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

When they fled from power in late January, civilians turned on their Muslim neighbors, accusing them of having collaborated with the brutal regime.

W.Va. gov. vetoes

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin vetoed a bill late Friday that would have banned abortion in West Virginia after 20 weeks. The Democratic governor said the bill was unconstitutional and state legislators were quick to "trample the rights of women in West Virginia," according to CBS affiliate WOWK-TV. "I have vetoed HB 4588 because I am advised, by not only attorneys from the legislature, but through my own legal team that this bill is unconstitutional," he said in a statement. Tomblin also said the medical community thought the legal penalties facing the legislation were problematic "because it unduly restricts the physician-patient relationship.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.
