Skip to comments.The Hidden Scandal of Sandra Fluke: Behind Rush Limbaugh's Massive Blunder
Posted on 03/06/2012 7:38:35 AM PST by Moseley
Last week, Rush Limbaugh enthusiastically and eagerly did a swan dive from the high board into the liberal trap. If anyone should know better, it is Rush. But Rush was thinking mainly about getting publicity for himself, to garner interest in people listening to his show. So Rush Limbaugh threw restraint to the wind, and started to channel Howard Stern. Rush started on a line of tittilating sexual innuendo, and just failed to stop at the border.
Anyone with Rush Limbaugh's experience knows by now that if you use certain words, phrases, or arguments, people will totally lose track of or forget what you were trying to say. No one experienced in politics fails to understand that if you use words like slut, prostitute, pimp, or the like, or Nazi, etc., or mention Hitler in any context, nobody will listen to anything else you have to say. They will be all wrapped around a tree about the word you used, and completely distract from the point you were trying to make.
The tragedy of Rush Limbaugh's inexcusable 'rookie' blunder is that the Sandra Fluke affair is a fiasco-in-waiting for liberals, Democrat candidates, and the Obama Administration.
This is not about Sandra Fluke.
Sandra Fluke exposed (almost) AN ANTI-CATHOLIC ATTACK BY LIBERALS AND DEMOCRATS.
What is being missed in Fluke's testimony is that she is only the spokesperson for a project to attack Catholic Georgetown University -- for being Catholic. Notice what Fluke actually testified:
We, as Georgetown LSRJ, are here today ..."
One told us about how ..."
In 65% of the cases at our school, our female students were interrogated .."
For my friend and 20% of the women in her situation, ..."
One woman told us doctors ..."
One woman told us that she knew birth control wasnt covered ..."
This was unmistakably a PROJECT to attack Catholic Georgetown University -- for being Catholic -- by "Law Students for Reproductive Justice" http://lsrj.org/
Sandra Fluke and "Law Students for Reproductive Justice" deliberately set out to attack and smear Catholics and the Catholic Church. This was a deliberate assualt on the religious beliefs of the Catholic Church.
This was the latest battle in the liberals' war on religion. (However, Limbaugh managed to totally obscure the real issues.)
It was also a complete pack of lies.
Perhaps Sandra Fluke will make a very talented liar, er, sorry LAWYER, one day.
Sandra Fluke may prove skilled at convincing juries of things that just aren't true.
But here, she got caught red-handed.
Because her testimony was perjury -- lying under oath -- her fitness to be admitted to the Bar ought to be questioned. The Bar makes a big distinction between dishonesty NOT under oath (not good) and a lawyer committing an actual crime, such as perjury. A candidate for bar admission faces a much higher burden to get admitted the first time.
The crucial lynchpin of the argument for attacking Georgetown's Catholic religious beliefs is the hypothesis that birth control is too expensive for a student to afford without health insurance paying for it. YET, THAT IS A FLAT-OUT, TOTAL LIE.
Sandra Fluke committed perjury (lying under oath) by claiming that "AS YOU KNOW" birth control costs a student "OVER $3,000" over the three years of law school.
Note: Some have tried to cover for Fluke by changing this to "UP TO." No. She said "OVER $3,000."
To expose this perjury, we need look no farther than Planned Parenthood's own website.
Of course Sandra Fluke did not identify which type of birth control she had in mind. But it doesn't matter:
COSTS: (1) Birth Control pills, every single day (with placebos often in the plan for 2 or 3 days): $15 per month, says Planned Parenthood. $540 over 3 years. (2) the PATCH: $15 per month says Planned Parenthood. $540 over 3 years. (3) IUD: Good for 12 years, $500 to $1000 up-front, says PP. (4) condoms: 40 cents each in economy packages.
Top name brand, Trojan, condoms cost $13.99 in a 36 count economy pack. That's 40 cents a condom. So the only way that a Georgetown student could be spending $3,000 over three years is to have sex 7,500 times over three years. That's 6.84 times a day, every single day, without any days off, for three years.
Could one spend MORE than $15 per month, which Planned Parenthood says is a likely price? Who cares? The discussion is about a student on a limited budget. So we are talking about how little she might spend, not how much she could go on the up side.
It is Sandra Flukes claim that a student *MUST* spend OVER $3,000″ during 3 years. She is claiming that it is NECESSARY (unavoidable) for a woman at Georgetown Law School to spend OVER $3,000″ a year for birth control.
So, sure -- you could pay more than $15 per month. But we are talking about students who are short on money. So obviously we are talking about students paying the minimum, because they are on a limited budget. The argument is that these students cannot afford birth control, so we have to look at the minimum price, not the premium price you could pay if you don't care about the cost.
But if Georgetowns students who are supposed to be studying some of the time had sex 3 times a week, taking 2 weeks out being with their families for holidays and taking 2 weeks out for exam weeks, that would be 432 times over three years.
COST FOR CONDOMS: $172.80 plus tax over three years. (432 times 40 cents each.)
With contraceptives, there is NO PROBLEM. They are cheap. Easily available. Nothing to worry about. Anyone who wants contraceptives can get them, often FREE.
To buy condoms 5 days a week, every single week without a break, costs only $104 a year if you buy top-brand quality (Trojans) in 36 count economy packs.
But the liberals have a more fatal problem here:
If you are going to lie, never lie about things that the hearer can SEE to be a LIE.
For the next 8 months, women will be buying their birth control pills every single month, if that is their chosen approach. They can SEE that the liberals are lying.
For the next 8 months, voters will walk through the aisles of grocery stores and then can SEE how little condoms cost. They can see that birth control is all over the place. In every grocery store in America, you can see them right there.
So the lie by the Democrats is obvious for all to see. The looming fiasco for liberals is that anyone can see the facts for themselves that the liberals are lying about.
Democrats and free agent liberals are doubling down on THE LIBERAL WAR ON WOMEN:
LIBERALS ARE PUBLICLY ARGUING THAT (liberals instinctively believe) WOMEN VOTERS ARE DUMB. That is, liberals hope and imagine that women voters aren't smart enough to see through the liberal scams and hogwash.
Republicans are betting that women voters are smart. Liberals are desperately hoping they're not. Obama's re-election strategy is to bet everything on the hope that voters are easily-fooled, gullible, and naive. Republican election hopes rest on believing the best about the American people.
So the only way the liberal scam can work is if women voters are really, really dumb.
Republicans treat women as intelligent. Democrats don't.
I do not understand the hate for Rush and the support for Fluke by average, non-political women.
FAR too many people took Bush=Hitler seriously.
The Bar will NOT turn a wommyn down, not unless they have an extra few million $ lying around;)
You jumping into the trap as well, what do you have for proof besides what some liberal told you.
although I’m a gal - and I’m sure this will be called sexist- but you know, somet times you just can’t fix stupid.
Rush is a man’s man. Some feminazi’s just can’t stand that.
I don’t care WHAT they do for sex, I’m just NOT going to be forced to pay for it.
I didn’t see her and I didn’t hear him. I do know that Rush could have used the word “orange” and his political opponents would try to make political hay from it.
Newt had a good response to the whole thing, much to the interviewer’s dismay
I think Rush was aggravated by the left’s disgusting comments about Breibart’s death, Maher calling Sarah Palin the c word and on and on until he said fair’s fair.
I don’t think that much damage has been done. Fluker is a Cindy Sheenan. America things she’s a gold digging slut.
Could it be a hypothetical where she was talking about frequent use of the abortion pill by some female students?
That would be consistent with Rush’s joke about more sex cost more $$$ for more birth control. I am not saying that I know what Rush was referencing.
Dems count on making the distinction between conception prevention pills and pregnancy termination pills be blurred in the average voters minds when they use the term ‘birth control’.
I work with 10-14 women (non political types as you mentioned)on a regular basis and they are running to the democrat platform over all this contraception crap.
This issue is going to kill the GOP at election time. Most women want gov't out of their uterus even if they don't take BC
And the Republicans are doing what to combat this stupidity? Where are they taking up what amounts to a non-issue? where are they calling the Democrats on the carpet by discussing high gas prices, high unemployment and high numbers of Americans receiving food stamps and other social welfare programs?
I am a gal too, and sometimes I wonder how we got the vote. I love and support Rush!!
The vast majority of women under 30 are not non-political; they an extremely liberal political agenda(as evidenced in the news and entertainment media, their voting patterns, and their own behavior — e.g.: the majority of births to women under 30 in the US are now out of wedlock).
Quite simply, their political agenda is to zealously oppose anything that interferes with their right to be promiscuous. If it’s an unborn baby, kill it. If it is the Constitution (as in the case of religious freedom), override it. And if it is moral behavior that conflicts with their own profligacy, savage the perpetrator (e.g.: Sarah Palin and Tim Tebow.
It is time to face the degenerate new reality.
Some brand name/non formulary BC that women use for medical issues is big $$$. $3000 over 3 years is not out of the norm.
And, that's EXACTLY why they put Fluke out there. She just didn't happen to stop by Congress for a chat.
Nothing hides 10% unemployment & $5 a gallon gasoline like a little cat fight.
If it turns out she was lying and there is an exchange of money involved the bar will refuse her a license.
lying is a serious issue with the most bars.
She may only be able to waive into the DC bar.
More to the point....it's time to smack it in the F'n face!
It is not the hard to understand as the left hates him for many reasons: his success, his influence, his humor (the left has not sense of humor if directed at them), most of all they hate him because he is correct on so many issues.
