Is this why Sandra Fluke went public?

Is this why Sandra Fluke went public?

Look which groups behind Obama's contraception strategy

Published: 11 hours ago

by Aaron Klein Email

Aaron Klein is WND's senior staff reporter and Jerusalem bureau chief. He also hosts "Aaron Klein Investigative Radio" on New York's WABC Radio. His latest book is the N.Y. Times best-selling, "The Manchurian President: Barack Obama's Ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists

Prior to her statements to congressional Democrats, did Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke have any prior connection to Obama administration officials?

Did the congresswomen who pushed Fluke’s testimony coordinate with a marketing and polling outfit that recently conducted a survey to determine whether contraception mandates can become a possible presidential election issue?

According to some reports, it was Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., who pushed for Fluke’s testimony. Maloney also initiated the call for Fluke to sue Rush Limbaugh for his on-air derogatory remark about Fluke, according to the Daily Beast.

She won’t sue. I hope she does! Then we’d get to ask her all kinds of questions during deposition and discovery. She’d be a slut under oath and in fear of perjury.

I’d be highly surprised if this (a perceived weakness in Catholic resolve to oppose contraceptive coverage mandates) was NOT part of the reason. One strikes when the iron is hot, not when it is cold.

The Rats might not want the awareness that such a suit might bring the public to.

She's just marginally tied in to the Obot crowd. Remember, she was a "substitute" for the individual the Democrats wanted to have do the testifying in the Congressional committee.

She was obviously not well vetted. Her apparent occupation before coming to Georgetown was actually LOBBYING FOR THE SEX CHANGE INDUSTRY.

This is probably the first time that crowd has gotten anyone hooked into a mainstream Democrat initiative, but there you have it.

I'm not sure the Democrats can build on this coup!

No, she won't sue. Discovery is the reason. But it's not because she's a slut ~ but because she has been active in lobbying for the sex change industry (in that period of time between her undergraduate years and her arrival at Georgetown Law ~ a good 5 years).

There's a reason she looks like a skinny dude with a $5 wig!

Subpoena White House access lists, including clearance to the Executive Office Building and the Old Executive Office Building. I bet she is on there.

Does anyone think, that at some point in the future, Fluke will realize that all that happened was that she got played by the Democratic establishment? Basically, making her a wh**e for them. They put her up there, promised her all sorts of things and when this stuff blows over and isn’t an issue anymore, she’s done. Her 15 minutes are up. No one will answer her call, reply to her texts/emails. Will she realize that the Dem establishment is nothing but a bunch of pimps in dark suits, mooching off the taxpayer?

These things are always orchestrated. Tammy Bruce (and she should know being a former big player in the liberal world) says 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 anested. 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'."

Under what name? Sandra or Sanford?

Time to check with Dick Cheney's contacts on this one ~ Fluke is outside the mainstream ~ all of them!

This is how Libs win. They control a vast empire of propogandists with national and international reach, funded largely by taxpayer money. Conservatives operate as individuals, or at best, small groups crying into rain barrels, funded locally with private money. Of course the Libs win every national issue. We still haven’t learned.

Maloney is a “housewife” from Nassau County NY. The Dims asked her to run because her husband was killed and son crippled on the LIRR by Ferguson. They thought she would win sympathy, a seat and be an anti gun advocate...not that Ferguson hadn't violated at least ten existing Federal, State and Local laws in doing what he did.

Point being she is and was nothing but a puppet of the Dims and this is her doing their bidding

The bus ride disputes had been a staple of the civil rights movement since the 1940s. My grandmother and I participated in such a dispute in about 1947 in Indianapolis.

The Indiana legislature desegregated EVERYTHING about 1952, but the buses were opened up earlier.

I like to think I had something to do with that.

Now, about the bus rides in the South ~ there were two classes. All were planned or orchestrated, and with good reason. You could get killed by people. No one went alone.

Northern cities were busted fairly easy since they had less of a tradition of murdering blacks. Southern cities were considered very hostile so ALL efforts were very highly organized, and as time demonstrated again and again, if your group was too small, or not well planned when engaged in an event, Southern power structures would arrange for injury and/or death.

emember, she was a "substitute" for the individual the Democrats wanted to have do the testifying in the Congressional committee.

I think she was the individual the Democrats wanted all along, and not the substitute.

The Democrats asked to invite Rev. Barry Lynn, the head of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and Fluke. The Republicans said they would invite one, per standard procedure, and invited Lynn. There is a 72-hour-rule of notice for witnesses, so one side can gather information about the other side's witness.

The Democrats waited until 4:30 p.m. the day before the hearing and then said "we don't want Lynn, we want Fluke." There wasn't time for the Republicans to learn about Fluke, so they said no.

Here's a story:

She should call Monica and ask her how being ‘Fluked’ by the Left is working out for her long term.

Lake was quoted as saying Obama’s stance on contraception is enough to “really irritate” independent suburban moms and “re-engage” young, single women who haven’t tuned into the campaign so far.

Hordes of brain-dead zombies suddenly rising up to vote for free birth control, without reference to the Mengele-esque aspects of the "Death-Care" bill.

Apparently Obama does have a better "story" for this type of voter (Suburban Grifter Nihilist "slut" Voter).

I don't think so. I think she's now a liberal heroine. If she's not picked up in a high-profile position on the staff of a high-profile lib politician, then she'll be in a liberal think-tank. She'll be called to appear on TV on liberal women's issues, whether they have anything to do with contraception or not.

Remember that others areas of her 'expertise' are human trafficking and abortion.

Why don't we know more about Sandra Fluck, the way we had to learn every little thing about Joe the Plumber?

For instance, I've been reading that she might own a house in Georgetown that's assessed for $450K. Is this true? Where did she get that kind of money--brokering condoms?

And the first time I saw her photo, I thought--That's a man!! But her voice is maddeningly screechy, so I don't think so.

Could she be transgendered?

Who's her Dad? What's her family?

Fluke is so much the personification of liberalism—

Unattractive, unfeminine, pro-abortion, absolutely no sense of responsibility, in favor other paying for herself, and biggest of all, she so fully embraces her VICTIMHOOD.

No. Fluke was a willing participant and as one tied to liberal positions is eager to help the cause. This definately was no accidental person who just stumbled in off the street.

Like another poster said, the dem/libs are well known for over-playing. This will probably be no exception.

She is a rabid liberal feminist with a chip on her shoulder (deep seated hatred of men in general).

NO ONE participates in the vagina monologues that isn’t as described by at least one of the above (most likely all of the above).

Look at her credentials and notice the causes she champions and the associations she has - that makes it perfectly clear even to the laziest of observers...

A couple of weeks ago George Stephanopolous asked Rick Santorum in a debate his standing on contraception. This was weird and “out of the clear blue sky”. A week or so later on Meet the Press David Gregory did the same thing. Then up pops Ms. Fluke with her “testimony” to a panel of Democrats only about the evil Georgetown not paying for her contraceptives and abortifacients Only a fool would consider this scenario a coincidence. It was organized by the DNC, the White House or both.

Carefully setting up a test case is not uncommon. Rosa Parks is a good example. Homer Plessy is another; Plessy vs. Ferguson was stage managed all the way, although those that picked the fight did not get the decision they wanted. (Plessy was 7/8 white, a polished and successful businessman, and the railroads wanted to be rid of idiotic southern racial rules that complicated business.) The Scopes Monkey Trial is another great example.

I've always wondered about the Dred Scott case. Irene Emerson, his owner, may have been a hard case ... but by 1850 she had moved to Massachusetts and had remarried ... to an abolitionist(!!!) She also seems to have permitted Dred Scott and his family to travel freely and move and mix in some pretty high powered abolitionist circles. Scott's case was partially financed by the son of his first owner, the son having by now become anti-slavery. Irene transferred Scott's ownership to him after the Supreme Court ruling; Scott was then freed. Smells like a setup job to me but I've never researched it closely and have not seen the suspicion confirmed.

I’m with you on that, but, more than likely the Dem’s will find some other Useful Idiot for the next ‘issue’ they want to bring up, when its time to deflect criticism from the them or the moron in chief. Basically, she’s the flavor of the day for now. But I doubt she will be tomorrow.

Unfortunately, the only reason this is still an issue is because of the stuff w/ Rush. Which I fully support, by the way.

When you control all of the messengers it is trivial to control the message....

We need to make/build more messengers on our side, and the internet has helped and this is why they are going to be clamping down on the internet. Be wary of ANYTHING that seeks to restrict the internet.

If he even wanted to, could Rush sue HER for jeopardizing his means of income. I know he has means, personally, but it would be nice to see discovery, etc. in a suit against her.

All this AFTER her original testimony at the hearing on Obamacare was rejected because the 'Rats in charge of the congressional hearing found she lacked expertise on the subject of the hearing: Obamacare.

Quite sure the dem/libs will try this War on Women until they finally figure out no one is listening, then will try to gen up another thing. Because of the real dire straits nobama is on on re-election, their tactics will become both hilarious and alarming.

If we ever get pure control (House, Senate and POTUS) there are two very primal things we must do. One is make it a crime to intentionally lie in political campaigning, , punishable if proven just like in court, punishable with hard time plus loss of voting for 4 years and two to make it a “hard time” crime plus loss of vote for 4 years to commit or enlist voter fraud.

When those tow things are cleared up, a heck of a lot of other anti-Constitution things will clear up.

Monica was never an advocate for leftist causes (even Pelosi didn't push for funding for more oral sex). She was a bit of an embarrassment to the left. She was never held out as an example of a woman assaulted by the right, she's not an a law school graduate, she never could have testified before Congress.

You didn't see Monica being invited on talk shows; Fluke was immediately invited.

Does that make sense?

Sandra Kay Fluke is 30 years old, and graduated from Cornell University.

Her father is Richard B Fluke, II, who is a machinist and a pastor at a Methodist church from a small town in Pennsylvania, Saxton.

Her mother, Betty Kay Fluke, is a school counselor.

Sandra graduated from Tussey Mountain High School in Saxton and was salutatorian in 1999.

Sandra has been living "part-time" in -- shudder -- West Hollywood, California.

Congressional Democrats and progressive interest groups are more than capable of finding someone like this and putting her forward without the White House being involved.

I wouldn't be surprised if the general theme "Republican War on Women" came from the White House and the Obama campaign.

But the original choice to testify at the hearing was a man. Somebody there, among the congressional Democrats and staffers, saw that it would have to be a woman, and picked Fluck.

Anything is possible, but I suspect she was too low down on the food chain for Obama or his people to have noticed her on their own.

FWIW, there's a little bit of a backlash or backwash or blowback on the left. Nothing really important, but some bloggers and commenters complain about Obama's "your parents should be proud of you" as patronizing and infantilizing a 30-year old woman.
