Bill O’Reilly Asks ‘Who Is Running Sandra Fluke?’… It ‘All Goes Back To White House’
Mediate ^ | March 8, 2012 | Alex Alvarez

“Who,” Fox News host

Bill O’Reilly asked on his program Thursday night, “is running Sandra Fluke?” He explained to viewers that The Factor believes that the controversy surrounding the activist and Georgetown law student has been manufactured in a calculated move to help the Obama administration.

The Factor is having some trouble, O’Reilly explained, tracking down who it is, exactly, that has been setting up Fluke’s media appearances. Just last week, he shared, his show called Fluke on her cell phone, inviting her onto the show. She has yet to call them back. “Very unusual,” said O’Reilly. “There was no other public contact for the woman, just her cellphone.” All the show has been able to gather so far, he continued, is that a man named “Mike” has booked her onto a few programs, but it has not been able to find out his last name or obtain his contact information.

“Why the subterfuge?” O’Reilly asked.

It turns out that Fluke is now being represented by a “progressive PR agency” named SKDKnickerbocker, where none other than Anita Dunn happens to be managing editor.

“Ah-HA!” O’Reilly announced. “So this whole deal comes back to the White House, at least indirectly.”

The host gave a brief synopsis of how Fluke ended up on our national radar, calling the controversy she has been linked to “completely bogus” because of the existence of Title X, which allows those who want to purchase birth control to do so for a mere 9 bucks per months at your local drugstore. (Nine dollars?! That’s cheaper than a sandwich in Manhattan.)

O’Reilly brought on radio host Laura Ingraham to weigh in further. Ingraham was surprised that Fluke, as a law student, is able to find the time to “jet around the United States” and talk about contraception.

“She doesn’t have enough money to buy the pill at nine dollars a month,” said O’Reilly (Again: Nine dollars? Is it really nine dollars?) “But she has enough money to fly coast to coast and all that.”

He summed up his theory on what is actually going on with Fluke:

There is no doubt in my mind, in my investigator’s mind that this woman, from the very beginning, was what they call “run” by very powerful people. It’s not an accident that Elijah Cummings, Nancy Pelosi, all these people, got her and put her in a position to get national exposure.

But now we see, alright, that Anita Dunn and her firm have embraced her. Now, she appeared on NBC 1, 2, 3, 4 times, CBS once, CNN once — no, five for NBC — and The View also. And each of these times, alright, there was a shadowy booking process. Because I spoke to some of these people. [...] She appears, she shows up. Somebody pays for all of that.

So I’m going to say — and I can’t prove it beyond a reasonable doubt, I think I will be able to — that this was run out of the White House. The White House ran this.

Why oh why then, haven't the Republicans made more of an effort to show she was a sham?? Are they going to mount ANY sort of concerted offense against Obama this year, or once again, are they going to allow the left to control the debate?

Ask Boehner. Bring a box of Kleenex.

Actually, I'm beginning to think it was a calculated move, and brilliantly played; kind of like sacrificing your rook so your bishop can nail the other guy's queen(Fluck.)

Rachel Maddow (NBC), Keith Olberman (Former NBC), David Brock (Media Matters CEO), Anita Dunn (Former Obama White House Communications Director), Dan Pfieffer (White House Communications Director).

“Well, I would encourage everyone to go to Media Matters because they have an excellent story on their website that gives a list of the various commentators who engaged in this type of language — Glenn Beck for one,” Fluke said. “And I think it is really important for us all to understand that this was not one person who went crazy and made funny, outrageous statements. This is evidently a segment of our political commentators who think that it’s acceptable in today’s society to say these things about women.”

A group with the ability to shape news coverage is of incalculable value to the politicians it supports, so it's no surprise that Media Matters has been in regular contact with political operatives in the Obama administration. According to visitor logs, on June 16, 2010,[Media Matter founder and head David] Brock and then-Media Matters president Eric Burns traveled to the White House for a meeting with Valerie Jarrett, arguably the president's closest adviser. Recently departed Obama communications director Anita Dunn returned to the White House for the meeting as well.

It's not clear what the four spoke about — no one in the meeting returned repeated calls for comment — but the apparent coordination continued. “Anita Dunn became a regular presence at the office,” says someone who worked there. Then-president of Media Matters, Eric Burns, “lunched with her, met with her and chatted with her frequently on any number of matters.”

Media Matters also began a weekly strategy call with the White House, which continues, joined by the liberal Center for American Progress think tank. Jen Psaki, Obama’s deputy communications director, was a frequent participant before she left for the private sector in October 2011.

I'm a Santorum guy. Newt would be fun to watch in the debates, and almost as acceptable as president. Romney, I suspect, would be another GHWB at best.

Agreed. Newt would be the best debater. Santorum draws people, as someone in the left wing media has begun to notice. Romney is the stereotypical, plastic politician, but is skilled with business. Would that we could roll all three into one .. oh, wait, that would be Reagan ;-)

Anita Dunn is also the wife of Robert Bauer.

Robert Bauer and Anita Dunn - A Match Made for Obama’s White House
Habeldash ^ | 10-22-09 | Chuck Justice

Posted on Thursday, October 22, 2009 10:55:22 PM by STARWISE

One of the hot trends on the internet right now is Robert Bauer and his wife, director of White House communications Anita Dunn, henceforth, Anita Dumb.

After a little digging it was uncovered that Robert Bauer has quite the rap sheet, which makes him a perfect partner for the Maoist Anita Dumb.

Bauer is an attorney who served as general counsel for the president’s Brown Shirt operation Obama for America during the presidential campaign and also serves as Obama’s personal attorney.

Let’s take a look at Robert Bauer’s achievements during his tenure:

* Served as general counsel for Obama for America.

* Unsuccessfully lobbied the Justice Department last fall to pursue a criminal probe of the American Issues Project (AIP), an independent group that sought to run an ad highlighting the Barack Obama and terrorist Bill Ayers of the Weather Underground connection.

* Sought prosecution with the Department of Justice against Harold Simmons for funding the ad.

* Used thug and scare tactics on television stations throughout the U.S. to compel them to pull the advertisement of Obama and Ayers.

UPDATE on Bauer:

On Thursday, June 2, 2011, the White House Press Office stated that Bauer would be returning to private practice at Perkins Coie,.... where he once again will represent the president’s election team and the Democratic National Committee.

The cynic in me believes that the GOP-e have already picked Bishop Romney and this is all just for show. I hope I’m wrong.

Me too. Why just the other day Obama "winked" at Romney by wishing him luck. That and the fact that Romney's campaign seems to synchronize their "inevitability" argument whenever Obama sags in the polls.

To nervous conservatives who castigate Rush for tactical reasons: for quite some time we have been running away from our right to call a slut a slut, a communist a communist, a brat a brat, a thug a thug, etc.

this was sent to me by a friend and I thought I should share it..This woman Flake Fluke or what ever she goes by is a liar and she needs to fess up...

"What made me suspicious about this woman was this...." “anonymous “friend” who had suffered an ovarian cyst because she could not obtain the birth control pill from the Catholic university she attended”

I would say about 99% of the time, ovarian cysts are estrogen driven meaning....too much floating around and causing using birth control made up of estrogen and a bit of progesterone....would have been something any KNOWLEDGEABLE MD would have way should you be on it... (Although there are a few dumb asses out there that would have prescribed it......and then the woman would have ended up with a couple operations before they ended up taking
all the works out. Have seen this more than enough times) Plus birth control heavily depletes folic acid...which helps make a baby....and consequently...get rid of extra you can see the issue here....

Rush did stumble on this one. I think he’s recovered well... but he did stumble. Bound to happen once in a while, given his style, which he himself freely admits as the cause for his stumble.

Basically he used the wrong word. He called her a slut when he should have stuck to the absolute truth: leftwing political operative and socialist hack. Not as sexy as “slut”... but absolutely 100% true.

No, his only stumble was apologizing. He should have just fought back and let the rest of the right help him. The truth will out.

That “nobody”, Randall terry, is a man who has fought LONG AND HARD—to get abortion abolished in this country. He has been sued, jailed and such, and he knows he can’t win on the demo ballot.

But—he is hopeful—and so should all of us be also—that maybe...just maybe—he could peel off enough votes from Obama—if he gets on the general ballot in November—that he could be the “3rd party on the DEMOCRAT side—and cost O maybe 10% or so of the demo vote...such would nearly GUARNTEE Obama’s defeat!!

So then...are you saying, that this will end up being a POSITIVE thing for Rush and the Conservatives??

Because—Monday afternoon—as things really “heated up” I said to myself”there are only 2 ways this could work out in the end. One-—the “conventional wisdom” is that it will hurt Rush(maybe irretriveably,), and the Christians and consevatives, and help Obama,the demons and others.

The OTHER option..was that the TRUTH WILL come out—and
not only will it not hurt Rush, but HELP him in the end—and expose —for ALL to FINALLY see—the total “double standard” that has SO long been held in the country—and seriously hurt the media, demons, feminists and even Obama himself.

I pray the second scenario takes place!!

Apologize to you & Mr. Terry for my poor word choice. I honestly wasn't aware who defeated Obama in all those Oklahoma county precincts. It stands to reason that Randall Terry would run strong in a good conservative state like OK. Meant no disrespect.
