Factor Investigation: Ex-Obama Official Running Sandra Fluke
Foxnews ^ | March 08, 2012 | O'Reilly

Posted on 03/09/2012 2:19:57 PM PST by Ernest_at_the_Beach

By Bill O'Reilly

As we reported last night, "The Factor" believes that the Sandra Fluke contraception controversy was manufactured to divert attention away from the Obama administration's disastrous decision to force Catholic non-profit organizations to provide insurance coverage for birth control and the morning after pill. That might very well be unconstitutional.

A man named Mike has booked her on a few programs, but we can't even get his last name. And Mike doesn't provide call-back numbers to those with whom he speaks. So Mike, who are you? And why the subterfuge?

I want to know who "Mike" is ..... there's a very good reason he's hiding his tracks. Also, there ought to be some way to "follow the money" .... I don't believe Fluke is doing this for free .... after all, she can't afford $9.00/month for birth control.

You might want to distance yourself from that neighbor. Anybody who is so dumb that they watch The View might be dangerous. ;^)

I absolutely cannot abide “The View” ..... like fingernails on a blackboard. I saw a brief clip of his appearance on his show and that was enough for me.

There is no way we didn't suspect this all along. (And I posted this here and on FaceBook just days after Fluke spoke.)

Why did we suspect a set-up? Because there is no way that, in just two short weeks after Obama announced his mandate for govt. paid contraceptives for all, could anyone have done what Fluke did. That is, poll a bunch of co-eds...compile statistics (albeit exaggerated and erroneous)...write a presentation...AND get on the schedule to appear before Congress right away (not unless there were strings pulled to schedule her quickly - as is done in a crisis situation, which this was not). I have been with groups who appeared before Congress. It took us 3-4 months to get on the schedule. So Fluke had to know about Obama's announced mandate, long before he announced it. So she had to be working with the administration and have known she was going to be the one to stand up there and make that presentation.

This was, for sure, a coordinated effort to focus the nation on a hyped-up controversy, a heretofore non-issue; something that would ignite feelings and arguments on both sides. Thus, this was planned to take the public's eye away from Obama's failures and inept leadership on things that are really important...Like our economy/gasoline prices, our national security, and the unemployment crisis. Of course, it was a successful ploy for a while. Deceit always is.

Since Obama is so weak on those, and can't handle the big problems, his administration has given him the only job he can do...community organize and get people feeling sorry for themselves instead of looking at the important, bigger issues.

Maybe she can get whoever is running her to subsidize her sexual exploits, since her boyfriends can’t afford it.

Also remember that Sandra Fluke was also used to torpedo Rick Santorum before Super Tuesday.

Bill O'Reilly has the gall to even use the word unconstitutional, considering what a gutless coward he is on Article II eligibility.

Now, late today we found out that Ms. Fluke is now being repped by the progressive PR agency SKDKnickerbocker where Anita Dunn, the former Obama communications director is the managing editor... a-ha.

The Lizard Lady of Mao is back!

This "contraception coverage issue" has been in the works for a long time.

The Case for Insurance Coverage of Contraceptive Services And Supplies Without Cost-Sharing

Guttmacher Policy Review Winter 2011, Volume 14, Number 1

A provision in the 2010 health reform legislation, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), requires all new private health plans to cover certain specified preventive health services without any out-of-pocket costs to consumers, such as copayments or deductibles. An initial list of such services, based on three sets of existing guidelines, began affecting insurance plans in September 2010. Reproductive health services on that list include cervical cancer screening, screening and counseling for HIV and several other sexually transmitted infections, and vaccination for human papillomavirus (HPV).

In November 2010, an advisory panel convened by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) began to develop a fourth set of guidelines—for women’s preventive health care—as required under an amendment to the ACA authored by Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD). Debate on the Senate floor made clear that the Mikulski amendment was intended by its supporters to include contraceptive counseling, services and supplies, as well as an annual well-woman gynecologic exam and other key services. The IOM panel is scheduled to make its recommendations in the spring to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), which is charged with adopting a final set of guidelines and has set a goal of doing so by August.

Additional Health Benefits

(snip)

And, of course, the male and female condom can help prevent sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, among sexually active women and men. According to the most recent summary of the evidence by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), consistent and correct use of latex condoms is highly effective in preventing the sexual transmission of HIV. It also reduces the risk of other sexually transmitted infections, particularly those transmitted by genital secretions, and may reduce the risk for HPV infection.

This is all part of the 0bamaCare mandate and Fluke's testimony was aimed squarely at influencing Congress to pass these very recommendations. Condoms may not be Rx and insurers may not cover them now but the plan is to mandate 100% coverage for them real soon and they intend to mandate that all insurers carry that coverage.

They are ALL gutless fools on Art. II. Does anyone for a nanosecond think that if Geo Bush or any other Republican president had authorized the release of fraudulent documents that were the product of felonious forgery we wouldn’t be in the midst of congressional hearings, subpoenae, arrest warrants and likely impeachment hearings? But no, the media, including Fox news and BO, Shawn, Mark, Laura, Mike Gallagher, Mark Davis and all the rest don’t even mention Sheriff Joe’s impartial investigative panel’s findings.
This is certainly more important that Iran Contra...and at least on par with Watergate as it involves the direct involvement of the President in a participatory role.
The truth is out there.... just no one is listening, nor cares to listen. There is no journalism... 60 minutes...Mike Wallace... Where are you?

O'REILLY: That's under Title 10 of the Public Health Act.

BARBARA WALTERS, CO-HOST, "THE VIEW": Right.

O'REILLY: All right, so there really isn't any... nay problem. You can get it and then if you don't want to drive down to the clinic you can go to Wal-Mart or you can go to Target and get it for $9 a month. So to insert this into a giant Obama care bill seems to be unnecessary to me.

**************************************************

Government Spends $12 on Safe Sex and Contraceptives for Every $1 Spent on Abstinence

The Heritage Foundation - January 14, 2004

In fact, programs promoting contraceptive use already receive very large amounts of government funding. In 2002, the federal and state governments spent an estimated $1.73 billion on a wide variety of contraception promotion and pregnancy prevention programs.1 More than a third of that money ($653 million) was spent specifically to fund contraceptive programs for teens.2

(snip)

Federal Funding

The federal government currently supports contraceptive programs to prevent pregnancy and STDs through eight separate funding streams. These include Medicaid; Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF); Title X Family Planning; Indian Health Service funding; the Division of Adolescent School Health (DASH) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); the Social Services Block Grant (SSBG); the Community Coalition Partnership Program for the Prevention of Teen Pregnancy; and the Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant.

(snip)

The types of contraceptive services offered through Medicaid are determined by the individual states. Currently, most state Medicaid programs offer a wide variety of contraceptive services, including oral contraceptives, condoms, diaphragms, spermicides, natural family planning, sponges, cervical cap, vaginal film, and sterilization through vasectomy or tubal ligation. In many states, Medicaid family planning funds are also used to support school-based clinics.

I posted this on another thread, but I think this example bears repeating. The socialists always set these things up:

According to Tammy Bruce (and she should know being a former big player in the liberal world) not even the Rosa Parks/bus incident was happenstance.

"Most Americans believe that the civil-rights struggle was full of serendipity. That it was a spontaneous grassroots movement of average people who wanted to make a difference and improve their lives. Rosa Parks, for example, has been portrayed as an Everywoman who happened to take the bus one day in 1955 and somehow crashed through the barriers of her ordinary, run-of-the-mill life by deciding not to relinquish her seat to a white man.

In truth, the Montgomery, Alabama, chapter of the NAACP had been looking for months for a test case to challenge bus segregation. For this, they needed a bus rider to be arrested so their challenge could move through the courts but it had to be the right sort of bus rider. In fact, Parks wasn’t the first black to refuse to relinquish a seat to a white person. The first to personally challenge bus segregation earlier in 1955 had been 15-year-old Claudette Colvin, followed by another teenager named Mary Louise Smith. The NAACP leaders, however, didn’t think that either of the girls would cut the right kind of figure in court.

Parks was a veteran activist and an officer of the Montgomery NAACP. In actuality, she wielded great power in the chapter; she was the one who had noticed Martin Luther King Jr. and asked him to join the executive committee. She was at the meeting where the Montgomery NAACP leaders considered the possibility of using Colvin or Smith as the test case.

In December of 1955, six weeks after the NAACP’s rejection of the teenagers, Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat. Parks told Time magazine, “I did not get on the bus to get arrested. I got on the bus to go home” That may have been true for Colvin and Smith but certainly not for Parks, Rosa Parks was a “bus rider" the way Betty Friedan was a 'housewife'."

The liberals can always make the pubbies look stupid.

Obummer wins, country dies a miserable Cloward-Piven death. Racial mayhem in the streets. Freedom exists no more on this planet and with no real space program, will die here.

Not happy about it but know that is the future. Pray that God is not too disappointed.

Glad I'm old.

How much more unconstitutional can you be than usurping the office of POTUS by not being a natural born citizen? Every other insult he heaps on the constitution is merely an addd on crime.
