The Missouri legislature may override Gov. Jay Nixon's veto of a 72-hour abortion waiting period. If that happens, it's another victory for social conservatives' quest to impose religious law in America.

How can you tell that President Obama is dangerously incompetent when it comes to national security?  There are many ways, but very few that actually have the capacity to get the attention of the Obama-adoring Left, including the media.

"When this administration is falling apart, the media should give it the exact same coverage they gave to George Bush," Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell told Fox News Channel substitute host Stuart Varney on the September 8 Your World w/Neil Cavuto. But as a new MRC study shows, they most certainly are not.

On Monday's New Day on CNN, Jonathan Martin of the New York Times and Bloomberg's Margaret Tavel ran to President Obama's defense over his handling of ISIS. Martin hyped that "the President is in a tough spot here....these two beheadings of journalists...have really outraged a lot of folks....and the President is forced to act. But again, there is not any appetite in this country to put ground troops back in that region. And so, the President is somewhat handcuffed."

The “Christian Right” is not only “homophobic”  but also actively experiments on gays with science, according to “Sherlock” actor Benedict Cumberbatch.                                                                                   

In an interview with Marlow Stern of The Daily Beast published Sept. 8, the English actor also said that the U.S. needs to have a woman president next, followed by a gay president. Cumberbatch’s comments were apparently inspired by the lyrics to a Morrissey song.

The New York Times on Monday hit Barack Obama from the left on the move to delay executive action on illegal immigration. Writers Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Ashley Parker forwarded an aggrieved comparison from angry liberals. They summarized Angela M. Kelley from the left-wing Center for American Progress (CAP) as saying "Latinos — like an aggrieved girlfriend who has waited in vain for a marriage proposal — are going to expect Mr. Obama to take even more expansive executive action later this year, given the delay." Hirschfeld Davis and Parker then cited another expert from the same liberal organization, CAP. Neera Tanden complained, "What really happened that moved this whole thing, tragically, was the border crisis, which created this argument of there being a magnet for undocumented immigrants. The journalists uncritically parroted, "White House officials said it became clear in recent weeks that the crisis had created a mistaken impression that the border was not secure."

As President Obama’s approval ratings have tumbled in 2014, polling news has practically vanished from the Big Three evening newscasts — in stunning contrast to how those same newscasts relentlessly emphasized polls showing bad news for George W. Bush during the same phase of his presidency.

After attending the NATO summit in Wales, President Obama only managed to convince 9 of the 28 member nations to join the U.S.-led effort to combat the ISIS terror network in Iraq and Syria. Despite such a failure to gain support from America's allies, on Monday's NBC Today, new Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd emphasized how the President wanted "to make this coalition against ISIS...look like the coalition that George H.W. Bush, back in 1990 and '91...put together to go after Saddam Hussein." [Listen to the audio]

Todd never mentioned how far short Obama had fallen of that goal, but asserted: "They don't want like some small coalition of two or three nations where it really is just the United States and a couple of symbolic countries."

On the opening of her Saturday night show “Justice with Judge Jeannine,” Jeannine Pirro laid into President Obama and his “mumbo-jumbo” about ISIS.

“I’ve been telling you for some time that President Barack Obama is not up to the job,” she said.

Wendy Davis, the Texas Democrat who is currently running to replace Rick Perry as the state’s next governor, spoke with Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts for an interview that aired on Monday, September 8. Davis appeared on ABC to hawk her memoir “Forgetting to Be Afraid” in which she revealed how she had two abortions in the mid-1990s. 

Throughout the two segments, Roberts treated the Texas Democrat to a fawning interview in which she played up how Davis “isn’t shying away from tough issues, both personal and political” before asking “why are you sharing so much right now? So personal.”

MSNBC may be gearing up for another election season of war on women. The Hardball host on Friday speculated whether the Republican senatorial candidate from North Carolina engaged in sexism by aggressively attacking his Democratic opponent. Before showing clips of Thom Tillis sparring with Senator Kay Hagan, Matthews sneered, "But sometimes, the more we watch, the more we avert our eyes." 

The cable anchor lectured, "...Talking down to your female opponent may not be the best strategy." Matthews connected the debate to George H.W. Bush's 1984 vice presidential debate with Geraldine Ferraro.

After Cosmopolitan magazine announced it would begin endorsing political candidates in the 2014 midterm election, Friday's CBS This Morning eagerly brought on the publication's left-wing editor-in-chief Joanna Coles, who proceeded to push liberal agenda items and bash Republicans. [Listen to the audio]

Co-host Gayle King touted the magazine "going political" and planning to "cover the midterm campaigns with a laser focus on issues it believes are crucial to women." Moments later, Coles made it clear those issues would all be from the left: "...there are two in particular that we feel really strongly about....equal pay for equal work, which you would think in 2014 would be an issue that would already be done....and also access to great health care and to contraception."
