News Roundup for 9/9/14

Here are some of the interesting news stories and opinions of recent days.

Iran’s War on Women: In Iran, “36 universities have announced that 77 BA and BSc courses in the coming academic year will be ‘single gender’ and effectively exclusive to men,” the Telegraph reports. I’m not among those who think the left’s claims of a Republican “war on women” is complete bunk; however, I rarely hear leftist who much such claims talk about the actual and severe Islamic war on women.

Udall vs. Gardner: During a recent debate, U.S. Senate candidate Cory Gardner demonstrated how hard it is to rebut Democratic attacks regarding reproductive rights, when Republicans in fact seek to ban abortion. Watch the video clip.

Inflation: In 2013, it cost the U.S. government 1.8 cents to make every penny and 9.4 cents to make every nickel, the Washington Post reported in March.

Islamic State: “The State Department is launching a tough and graphic propaganda counteroffensive against the Islamic State,” Fox News reports. Apparently this is a “send a graphic designer to a gun fight” model of foreign policy.
