Video: The Gender Income Gap Myth


During his most recent State of the Union Address, President Obama stated that women only make 77 cents to every dollar that men earn.   American Enterprise Institute scholar Christina Hoff Sommers reveals that this is a “massively discredited factoid.”  When we take into account various factors such as differences in occupation, job tenure, and hours worked per week, the gender income gap basically evaporates.  The claim that women make 23% less pay for the same work is an extremely misleading, but politically convenient, statistic.

Manipulatively lying to woman for political advantage sure sounds like a real War on (the intelligence of) Women.  We at BarbWire call it like we see it.

Hating Jesus: The American Left's War on Christianity

Matt Barber with Paul Hair

The secular left doesn’t merely have a disagreement with Christianity. These are not people with whom one may reason, compromise or even disagree. They are dedicated to evil. They demand nothing less than the abolition of the biblical worldview, and the destruction of Christ’s followers right along with it.

Now is the time to fight back. If you are someone, Christian or not, who refuses to see Christianity wiped out (like it ever could be) and your children indoctrinated into pure evil, then sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.
