Everyone Say It Loudly: We Need Men
The Federalist, by Joy Pullmann

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 6/15/2014 4:58:03 AM

My father gave me what too many girls nowadays ruin themselves for lacking: A strong, loving, steady masculine presence. It’s inconceivable what I would be like without him. So, before I explain why my dad’s story is bigger than us, let me brag on him a little. It’s Father’s Day weekend, after all. Dad’s presence in my life kept me safe from many things my girlfriends put themselves through in frantic search of a man’s love. And my dad’s love was tangible, more acted out than spoken. He didn’t just say he loved us. His life repeatedly proved it. I never

The decline in American civilization and culture can be dated with the rise of liberalism and feminism. Today our institutions maintain as social gospel that masculine traits and behaviors are undesirable and even punishable! We are no longer talking about social experiments but an alteration of a thousand generations of evolution which formed family behavior. In the end families and their offspring with a strong male presence will eventually dominate our society even as their numbers dwindle. It is an evolutionary certainty that no one can Google away.

Thanx, OP. Good article.

One of the most profound things my #2 son ever said to me was, "I have learned as much from your bad habits as I have from your good ones." [It pleases me greatly to tell you he is already far more successful than I ever was. He is a lot more civilized than I am, OP]

I have said this on many occasions.

Thank God I was born at a time and place to have a real man like my dad, instead of some of the wimps and idiots I see today.

Just imagine. Your dad is passionate about women having abortions even in the ninth month. Your dad is passionate about pot being legalized, and enjoys locking himself in an upstairs bedroom and smoking pot...which you smell anyways...and deep down resenting that your dad is doing it. But it´s his passion. Or he grows it.

Imagine having a dad that is all for denying people personal protection in the form of a gun, and thinks all cops are killers, but is practically crying when he sees someone standing outside his home and 911 has put him on hold.

Imagine sitting out in a hot car because your dad does not know how to change a flat tire, while he pitifully tries to flaw down strangers. You never get to fly a rocket or an RC plane because "it´s dangerous". Your dad has tremendous respect for Che Guevara. Your dad thinks your little brother´s dressing up in girls´ outfits is a natural expression and should be allowed to use any restroom he wishes. Your dad thinks the rich should be taxed more, considers the people who makes what he makes as rich, but then screams when his taxes go up.

Yeah, we need men, we need real fathers, not posers. I am lucky, and when my older son says to me--I am sure glad THAT guy is not my dad, while he points to some loser--at least I know I am not alone in my thinking.

We need manly men, not the metrosexual wimps society wants us to produce. Men who are not afraid to stand up for themselves and their families.

I was raised by one, so I know how to recognize one.

Fortunately, there are still some out there.

OKLAHOMA CITY - James Lankford now has a lead over T.W. Shannon in a heated race to replace Sen. Tom Coburn, according to a News 9/News On 6 poll.

Hillary Clinton Wants Bill to Lift Her Up—

Hillary Clinton’s book tour is in fact showing the limits of her charms—at a time when Barack Obama’s unpopularity may rub off on her. Once again, Hillary Clinton has reminded us that she is not a natural-born politician—unlike her husband, Bill. Questioned by Diane Sawyer about her role in what went wrong in Benghazi, Clinton slipped into monotonal legalism and disavowed her own responsibility for security breaches surrounding the murders by Islamic militants of J. Christopher Stevens, our ambassador to Libya, and Sean Smith, a foreign service officer. Dodging and weaving, Clinton punted on her own nexus to disaster:

DENVER — Chelsea Clinton led a few hundred volunteers in a day of service led by her family’s foundation Sunday that assisted six local nonprofit organizations that provide food, medicine and housing for people in the United States and across the world. The day of action, something the Clinton Foundation began after Superstorm Sandy ravaged the New York and New Jersey coast in 2012, is a way of giving back to the city playing host to the Clinton Global Initiative America meetings, which run Tuesday through Thursday at the Sheraton hotel downtown. “We’re so grateful for the warm welcome we’ve received already

Walmart, the nation’s largest retailer, recently decided to go into the newspaper editing business. The Arkansas-based company responded to an article from New York Times columnist Timothy Egan, titled “The Corporate Daddy” by doing the work that it felt Egan’s Times editors should have done. “Thanks for sharing your first draft,” reads a red-inked note from Walmart, which is known more for its low prices than its snark. “Below are a few thoughts to ensure something inaccurate doesn’t get published,” continued the note, which was posted at Walmart’s blog and is attributed to David Tovar, Walmart’s director of corporate communications.

Women should be able to buy
the pill without a prescription
Denver Post [CO], by Cory Gardner    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/22/2014 1:15:32 PM     Post Reply
The least loved institution in America today is the U.S. Senate, and one of the reasons it is reviled is a zero-sum approach to women´s medical care. It´s time we changed that and adopt modern policies that make sense instead of using women´s medical issues as an election-year power play. One of the most rational ways for Washington to break this gridlock is to approve oral contraception for over-the-counter purchases by adults. Since "the pill" was first approved 44 years ago, it´s been one of the most proven and tested pharmaceuticals of our time. It is safe, reliable, effective, and presents

EPA in Contempt for
Destroying Computer Files

It’s hard to hear about this week’s Environmental Protection Agency contempt case and not think about the controversies surrounding the IRS “loss” of Lois Lerner’s email–and hard drive–and crash of the relevant server. According to an Associated Press report, a federal judge has held the EPA in contempt for destroying computer files sought after by a conservative group: Landmark Legal Foundation. It’s taken more than 13 years. U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth had ordered the EPA on Jan. 19, 2001, at the end of the Clinton administration, to preserve all documents relevant to a Freedom of Information Act request by

Advocates of splitting California into

Good day, future citizen of West California! You may find yourself greeted thusly as you head into a supermarket or drugstore in Los Angeles on Saturday morning. Advocates for Six Californias, a plan to split the Golden State into a half dozen separate states, are holding a petition drive this weekend to get their plan on the ballot in 2016. The idea is the brainchild of Timothy Draper, a venture capitalist from Menlo Park – or as he hopes to some day call it, the state of Silicon Valley. Draper has sunk $2 million into signature gathering for the proposal. He maintains

Mississippi has a law that says a person cannot vote in a party primary unless they intend to support that party´s nominee in the general election. The law is all but unenforceable and is contradicted by other state statutes, but nevertheless it has gotten a lot of attention over the past week. The reason: Democratic operative James "Scooby Doo" Warren confirmed to me that he was working on behalf of the Mississippi Conservatives PAC on a statewide get-out-the-vote project in predominantly black precincts. Warren also said that while he´s happy to do the work, he will be supporting Travis Childers, the

SEOUL – The wife of South Korea’s most wanted man, a businessman linked to a ferry disaster in which hundreds of school children drowned, was arrested on Saturday, prosecutors said, as the net tightens around the fugitive’s family. Police and prosecutors arrested Kwon Yoon Ja, 72, on suspicion of embezzlement after chasing her for more than 20 days, an official said. Prosecutors and police are seeking Yoo Byung Un, 73, who has eluded one of the country’s biggest manhunts for more than a month. The husband of Yoo’s younger sister, a former ambassador to the Czech Republic, was arrested on Friday on

Hillary Clinton and Marion Barry
two politicians with staying power
Washington Post, by Colbert I. King    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/22/2014 4:52:13 AM     Post Reply
The release of Hillary Clinton’s “Hard Choices,” and Marion Barry’s “Mayor for Life: The Incredible Story of Marion Barry, Jr.” within days of each other was no doubt unintentional. But the timing is nonetheless fortuitous. The books draw attention to two of Washington’s most enduring political war horses. Clinton and Barry probably wouldn’t care to be linked with each other. They may share the same party label and left-leaning politics, but they tend to move in different circles. But the two politicians share a common experience: long public careers filled with year upon year of melodrama. Think Clinton and Barry

Is the sun about to set on Charlie Rangel? Well, the voters get the last word — and a respectable poll shows the 84-year-old, 22-term institution with a healthy and apparently widening lead going into New York’s 13th congressional district primary election on Tuesday. So, it would seem not. What a pity. Because if there was ever a fellow who embodies the dysfunctionalities of Washington, Congress and contemporary elective politics, he is Rep. Charles Bernard Rangel of Harlem — the only chairman of the tax-writing House Ways & Means Committee ever to be pressured from that post for failure to pay his own

U.S. gold medal-winning goalkeeper Hope Solo was arrested early Saturday morning on investigation of two counts of domestic violence assault, police told the Seattle Times. Solo, 32, is being held without bail at the SCORE misdemeanor jail in South King County. Solo allegedly got into an argument with relatives at a family party at the home she shares with her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, in Kirkland, Washington. At some point during the altercation, according to police, Solo physically struck her sister and 17-year-old nephew.

At the end of the Civil War, but before the pernicious reach of Jim Crow undermined the Union Army’s battlefield victory, former slaves and free blacks found themselves in possession of a most precious right -- the right to vote. It didn’t matter if a man had been a war hero in the famed, all-black 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment or a house servant in a Southern plantation. All that mattered was that he was a man. To say that this development didn’t sit well with the progressive-minded women of this country is an understatement.

By 10 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2012, when Hillary Clinton received a call from President Obama, she was one of the most thoroughly briefed officials in Washington on the unfolding disaster in Benghazi, Libya. (Snip) She had no doubt that a terrorist attack had been launched against America on the anniversary of 9/11. However, when Hillary picked up the phone and heard Obama’s voice, she learned the president had other ideas in mind. With less than two months before Election Day, he was still boasting that he had al?Qaeda on the run. If the truth about Benghazi became known, it would blow that argument out of the water.

I still think President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, even though for 14 years he allowed his literary agent to circulate a bio blurb stating he was born in Kenya, and even though for many years he attended a church where his pastor friend shouted such things as “God damn America!” I still think that he just pretended to be Kenyan to be cool, to sell books and, perhaps, to get a foreign student scholarship at those colleges from which he refuses to release his transcripts. He’s probably not actually Kenyan. But as I speculated

Hillary Clinton´s multimillion dollar fortune has caused some negative headlines during the media tour for the release of her new book "Hard Choices," which is widely seen as a prelude to a potential 2016 presidential campaign. Clinton responded to criticism of her wealth in an interview with the Guardian newspaper published Saturday night by suggesting Americans won´t be concerned about the more than $100 million her family has reportedly earned in recent years because they´re not "truly well off." "They don´t see me as part of the problem," Clinton said of Americans who are upset about income inequality, adding, "Because we

There are times that I have senior moments and forget certain names and events but after the recent Obama Iraq war implosion, I´m convinced most political pundits are suffering from them as well. What is unusual is that this revision of history is being committed by conservatives who should know better. Recent commentary by Glenn Beck, George Will and Charles Krauthammer indicate that they have significant memory lapses about why we went to war in Iraq. They now suggest that it was a wrong decision whereas my complaint is that we took too long to invade and oust Saddam Hussein.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) cancelled its longtime relationship with an email-storage contractor just weeks after ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer crashed and shortly before other IRS officials’ computers allegedly crashed. The IRS signed a contract with Sonasoft, an email-archiving company based in San Jose, California, each year from 2005 to 2010. The company, which partners with Microsoft and counts The New York Times among its clients, claims in its company slogans that it provides “Email Archiving Done Right” and “Point-Click Recovery.” Sonasoft in 2009 tweeted, “If the IRS uses Sonasoft products to backup their servers why wouldn’t you choose

All the time I was growing up in Atlanta, the face of Robert E. Lee was taking shape on the side of an enormous granite mountain just outside town. He loomed like a god above us, as much a presence as any deity, and God knows he was accepted as such. It was only much later that I began to question his sanctity, and then to hate what he stood for. When I was in elementary school, the face of Lee on Stone Mountain was a rough-cut thing, weathering and wasting as the generation that began it in 1912—a generation

The decision this past week by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to rescind federal trademark protections for the Redskins may ultimately tip the balance in the controversy over the 80-year-old name of Washington’s football team. If so, that would be a shame. Not because there’s insufficient reason to consider the name “disparaging to Native Americans,” as the patent office determined. Many of us recoil at the reference to skin color as a team identity. The problem is that the Redskins case is just the latest example of a federal agency going beyond its brief to inappropriately insert itself in

US Secretary of State John Kerry has arrived in Iraq´s capital, Baghdad as Sunni insurgents expand their control of towns across north-western Iraq. In Egypt on Sunday, Mr Kerry warned that Sunni militants Isis´ "ideology of violence and repression is a threat not only to Iraq but to the entire region". On Sunday rebels--spearheaded by Isis militants--captured border crossings to Syria and Jordan. The strategically important airport in the northern Tal Afar has also fallen. The town controls the main road from the Syrian border to Mosul, Iraq´s second biggest city, which was captured by the rebels two weeks ago.

With much of the Obama administration´s foreign policy in tatters, John Kerry is clear on at least one goal he hopes to achieve by the end of his time as secretary of state: having lesbian, bisexual, and transgender ambassadors representing the United States. In remarks to a GLIFAA (formerly Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies) Pride event in the Ben Franklin Room at the State Department, the secretary ran through a litany of accomplishments by the Obama administration that benefit the "LGBT/gay community."

‘R-E-S-P-E-C-T,” the song goes. It is easy enough to spell, but for some vocal critics of President Barack Obama, it seems exceedingly hard to do. As the president moves toward the land of the lame ducks, his political enemies are calling for blood. That’s no shocker at this stage of a presidency. In this case, the cuts go deeper. For some, it is not enough to disagree. Some high-status public figures seem determined to demean, denigrate and ridicule the president of the United States. On June 12 the Speaker of the U.S. House stepped to a podium and insulted Obama for his handling of

A hundred years ago next week, in the small Balkan city of Sarajevo, Serbian nationalists murdered the heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary and his wife. People were shocked but not particularly worried. Sadly, there had been many political assassinations in previous years—the king of Italy, two Spanish prime ministers, the Russian czar, President William McKinley. None had led to a major crisis. Yet just as a pebble can start a landslide, this killing set off a series of events that, in five weeks, led Europe into a general war.The U.S. under President Woodrow Wilson intended to stay out of
