When someone says, “I am pro-life except in the case of rape or incest”, they are using an oxymoron to describe themselves. This is in essence describing themselves as pro-choice and have a lack of understanding of what being pro-life is truly about. Glenn Beck, who my husband listens to almost daily, is a good example of […]…
A Texas hospital may not appeal a judge’s decision late Friday to allow a husband’s bid to remove his “brain dead” pregnant wife from life support, an action that would end the life of his own unborn child.

A judge allowed a Texas husband’s bid to remove his “brain dead” pregnant wife from life support, an action that would end the life of his own unborn child.

Win. As Twitchy reported, Wendy Davis took to Twitter to blame her opponent in the Texas gubernatorial race for the lies in her bio. The Patriarchy must have made her lie or something! She can’t be expected to take responsibility for her own actions or anything. Sheesh! Also a win? Tammy Bruce’s key reason to […] Twitchy » US Politics

Is anyone really surprised that the leader of the Islamic Fourth Reich would show public support for a vile Jew-hater? Not even Obama is surprised, I am sure. “Ayatollah Khamenei Tweets Support for French Anti-Semite,” Algemeiner but first flagged by anonymous blogger Elder of Ziyon on Monday. As world powers praise Iran’s new “moderate” stan…
In the opening monologue of his show “Huckabee” Saturday night, Mike Huckabee began to backpedal on his support for the Common Core curriculum, saying that he doesn’t support “what Common Core has become in many states or school districts.” He also encouraged the retirement of the “toxic” term Common Core, …

Child Support, a Baseball Bat, and Boiling Alfredo Sauce: The Diner Rampage That Landed Three Women in Jail
Three Pennsylvania women are facing charges for a rampage that allegedly involved boiling Alfredo sauce, an aluminum baseball bat, and seven injured people.
Law enforcement officials said Tori Thomas entered Cee Tee’s Diner in Canton, Pa., at around 2 p.m. Friday looking for a man named Andrew Herron who reportedly owed her child support.
Herron told Thomas he would not pay, prompting Thomas to storm out of the diner. Police did not say whether Herron worked at the diner.
Mother Jones uncovered new “dirt” on Virginia candidate for Governor Ken Cuccinelli: he has given thousands of dollars of his own money to pregnancy resource centers. That’s right—the breaking “scandal” this week is that Ken Cuccinelli’s charitable giving includes helping local women who face tough times during pregnancy.
NARAL Pro-Choice America is, predictably, incensed. Its headline screams “Ken Cuccinelli Caught Donating Personal Funds to Fake Clinics That Lie to Women.” Although such a title might imply that these pregnancy centers are a sham storefront, they, and the women they serve, are real.
We’ve been guilty of our share of typos here at Twitchy, but there’s something so wrong about such an obvious typo coming from Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers — not to mention the idea that Wendy Davis’ 11-hour filibuster was “for the children.”
