Wages For North Dakota Women Grow Faster Than Men, Democrat "War On Women" Narrative Hardest Hit

Wages For North Dakota Women Grow Faster Than Men, Democrat "War On Women" Narrative Hardest Hit

I was floored when, earlier this year, North Dakota Democrats adopted an official resolution stating that women in North Dakota face “emergent danger…by simply being women in this state.” Not just danger, mind you, but emergent danger. As in urgent danger. That’s a little hard to swallow. One could argue that the influx of young

Will Senator Heitkamp Speak Out Against Dems Roadblocking Resolution Honoring Margaret Thatcher?

In Great Britain they’re getting ready to bury Margaret Thatcher, that country’s first female Prime Minister. But here in America, Senate Democrats are roadblocking a resolution to honor her. Congress passes a lot of resolutions honoring everything from awareness months to championship sports teams. They’re usually passed unanimously and with little fanfare. So the news

To End Media Bias, Journalists Should Stop Pretending They're Objective

There are two ideals the media believes, according to Ross Douthat writing at the New York Times: One is an ideal of balance, nonpartisanship and near-perfect neutrality — distilled to its essence, perhaps, by the former Washington Post editor Leonard Downie Jr.’s longstanding refusal to cast a vote, “so that I never make up my

Media MIA From Gruesome Abortion Trial

“If it bleeds it leads” is the mantra for the media who normally love morbid crime stories. Unless that story is inconvenient for certain sacred liberal cows, in which case not so much. Here’s a picture of the empty seating air reserved for media at the Kermit Gosnell trial: From the blogger who took the

Video: Despite Problems At Spirit Lake, Heitkamp Defends Expansion Of Tribal Jurisdiction

The Violence Against Women Act has been heralded by Senator Heitkamp as one of the major achievements of her first 100 days in the US Senate. She’s even gone so far as to take a victory lap around the state after its passage in the Senate, and in this observer’s humble opinion she’s been quietly

Democrat Congressman Gets Asked, "Why Don't You Support A Woman's Right To Choose To Defend Herself?"

Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) recently put on a town hall meeting entitled “Preventing Another Newtown: A Conversation on Gun Violence in America.” So, you’d think a question about women who want the right to choose to defend themselves would fit right in. Not so much, it seems. After a woman asked the congressman why, since

Obama Administration Member Reportedly Called Female Reporter A "C*nt"

When Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a “slut” it turned into a major controversy. Now, in the wake of the controversy over high-profile reporters like Bob Woodward and Jonathan Alter claiming they were bullied and intimidated by the administration, comes a report that Obama administration officials used some very ugly language in talking to a

Due Process Rights Take A Back Seat To The "War On Women"

The House today voted in favor of re-authorizing the Violence Against Women Act. After first considering a version backed by House conservatives, protecting the rights of the accused by removing a provision giving tribal authorities jurisdiction over non-tribal members, they passed the Senate version of the law. Here in North Dakota, Senator Heidi Heitkamp (who,

Democrats: North Dakota Women Are In "Emergent Danger" For "Simply Being Women"

The North Dakota Democrat party picked new leadership recently, and adopted an official resolution calling Republican leadership of the state a failure (you’re probably about as shocked as I am). But the text of the resolution is interesting. In addition for claiming that Republicans hate little children and gays, it also states that women are
