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

Posted on 03/09/2012 4:35:54 AM PST by NYer

“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.

Watch the video. Bill addresses Obama's disastrous decision to force catholic, non-profit organizations, to provide birth control and the morning after pill. O'Reilly's staff has done a phenomenal job of digging very deep into this matter, to reach the source. My gut feeling tells this has been done at the request of Cardinal Dolan. Like Bill, I can't prove it ;-)

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.

BOR has been losing conservative viewers for awhile, so I am sure he is reading the tea leaves. Aside from the reason behind his disclosures, the facts are as he presented them...this wymyn is a plant and ruse to divert attention from the drone we have in the white house.

Fluke with a mike reminds me of the old joke with the punch line “hello Mom”.

I think that I detect a very subtle “decoupling” of certain media groups, political operatives, and so forth from the Obama “train”. I think at the very least there is an effort to explore options, cover their bets, etc.

This is where I think Romney comes in. The people with real money (ie. billionaires, media moguls, etc.) would not be that averse to a “President Romney.” Romney is cranking up the “inevitability” theme again, redoubling his efforts.

It may be too early to declare Obama “road-kill” but I think it’s going to be increasingly clear.

Consider the recent Gallup Poll showing that 50% consider Obama’s presidency “a failure”? Consider that Obama LOST something like 18 counties in the Oklahoma Democrat Primary to a nobody? Individually these things might be aberrations, but the data points are adding up to a defeat of Carter-esque proportions.

This woman was brought before Congress to provide "testimony" in support of Obamacare. I'm pretty sure that they don't just pull everyday schmucks off the street to do this, especially when they want a certain kind of statement.

It ‘All Goes Back To White House’

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.

Where "this" IMO means the Mau-Mauing of Limbaugh, et al and the encouragement it gives to threaten them with violence.

President Barack Obama leads the confederates of aging 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus spoiled brats and their ideological issue who now have their own Establishment. Their confederation is poised to secede from and destroy the Constitutional republic and our social contract, freedoms and inalienable rights. Another Democrat civil war?

Our military and LEO should put an end to this before it gets out of hand and I honestly believed back then that it should have been done when the little psycho spoiled brats were running wild.

I think you are both wrong. You may have heard the expression that Catholic Cardinals are considered the Princes of the Church. The term refers to their sphere of influence. Bill is a catholic and Timothy Cardinal Dolan is not only the Archbishop for New York, he is also President of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. Obama and Dolan both hold powerful positions.

Exactly right. I stopped listening to his radio show during Election 2004 as he attacked the swift boat veterans in deference to Kerry -- obviously not only supporting his friend but also trying to lure him to the show.

No spin? The clown was a whirling dervish of devotion to his friend Kerry.

O'Reilly assigns far too much benefit to this topic. It hasn't helped Obama one bit, and actually seems to make the administration look petty,

This woman was brought before Congress to provide "testimony" in support of Obamacare.

No she was not!!! Darrell Issa's committee was looking into the question: Does the president have the constitutional authority to demand and mandate that Catholic universities (or churches or schools) provide not just contraception, but other medication that facilitates abortions taking place or that causes them to happen? Does he have the right to mandate that?

The democrats had a witness lined up for this hearing: Barry Lynn. And at 4:30 in the afternoon, they canceled. The Democrats pulled Barry Lynn out and said that they wanted Sandra Fluke to show up instead. And Issa said, "Who's this? We don't know who she is? She doesn't have any expertise." There's a 72-hour vet rule. They have 72 hours to figure out who the witnesses are, to see if they're qualified. Democrats didn't want that to happen.

Issa stood firm and said, "Sorry." So the Democrats staged a press conference made to look like a congressional hearing. And the whole purpose was to change the subject from Obama's mandating (anti-constitutionally) that insurance companies or churches provide, free of charge, contraception and abortifacients. They had to desperately change the subject. They changed the subject to contraception and how supposedly the Republicans were opposed to it, and thus the war on women.

She was brought in to testify before Congress, but the Republican committee chair refused to allow her to speak, because he saw it for what it was, a publicity stunt.

Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats staged a phony committee meeting, and the media filmed it as they would have a regular meeting. Most folks don't realize that.

“he should have stuck to the absolute truth: leftwing political operative and socialist hack.”

Exactly, RUSH’s mistake was that for a moment he believed that she was an student activist. He should have followed his own philosophy that everything the left does is manufactured. He should have dug deeper into this woman’s background from the beginning in order to expose her as just another leftist hack funded by the Obama regime - an illegitimate activist...a political whore if you will.

The presidency controls the political agenda in this country. I'd rather have a conservative in there. Yet I really, really want to see Obama humiliated, too.

Thank you both for your clarification. I didn't necessarily mean she was brought before Congress by the rule book, and clearly, she was brought in a staged way by the Democrats.

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?

Regardless, I’ve noticed a tilt from moderate to moderate conservative in recent BOR commentary which I attribute to comments I have heard personally and what I have read by others on FR that is he was less right leaning in the past few years beginning with his powder puff interview of His Excellency.

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).

http://news.yahoo.com/sandra-fluke-encourage-everyone-media-matters-195530475.html

“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.”

http://spectator.org/archives/2012/02/21/is-media-matters-obamas-waterg/1

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.

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

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.
