The War on Women Never Ends!

As I dig out from my trip, I’m combing through piles of fundraising emails from the DNC. It is amazing how the absence of a woman on a single panel has been turned into the preface of the Handmaid’s Tale for these people. This email this morning is, roughly speaking, the umpteenth of it’s kind I’ve gotten:


Jonah –

What are Republicans so afraid of that they won’t even give women a seat at the table to discuss women’s issues?

Frankly, it doesn’t matter what their excuse is.

We have just 24 hours left to show that we have what it takes to end their assault on women’s health care.

With the critical February Federal Election Commission deadline approaching, we are still $148,000 short of our $1 million grassroots goal. Will you help put us over the top?

Chip in $3 or more right away and a group of committed Democrats will match your gift dollar-for-dollar.

Never in my lifetime have I seen Republicans in Congress so determined to silence women and deny us access to basic preventative health care.

The most powerful and important thing we can do is hold them accountable and defeat them.

There are just 24 hours left. Act quickly:

Rep. Diana DeGette

Co-Chair of the House Pro-Choice Caucus

The Strange Paradoxes of Our Age

Modern prophets often say one thing and do another. Worse, they often advocate in the abstract as a way of justifying their doing the opposite in the concrete. The result is that contemporary culture abounds with the inexplicable — mostly because modern progressivism makes all sorts of race, class, and ... Read More

One Last Grift for Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders, the antique Brooklyn socialist who represents Vermont in the Senate, is not quite ready to retire to his lakeside dacha and so once again is running for the presidential nomination of a party to which he does not belong with an agenda about which he cannot be quite entirely ...

Changing Reality with Words

The reinvention of vocabulary can often be more effective than any social protest movement. Malarial swamps can become healthy “wetlands.” Fetid “dumps” are often rebranded as green “landfills.” Global warming was once a worry about too much heat. It implied that man-made carbon emissions had so ... Read More
