  • Fiorina: Rush Limbaugh's comments about student "insulting," "incendiary" (2012 Fluke)

    California Republican Carly Fiorina said Friday it is "insulting" for radio host Rush Limbaugh to call a student activist a "slut" and "prostitute" because she is pushing for employers to pay for contraception. "That language is insulting in my opinion," said Fiorina, who launched an unsuccessful Senate bid against longtime California Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer in 2010, on "CBS This Morning." "It's incendiary and most of all, it's a distraction. It's a distraction from what are very real and important issues," the former chief executive of Hewlett-Packard said. At least one advertiser, The Sleep Train, has pulled its advertising from...

    To thwart a bear attack, make yourself look bigger and scarier.This is how you escape from a bear attack. Ralph Perrson was walking with his wife and dog in the woods when he noticed his dog was barking differently, the Swedish outlet The Local reported. Suddenly a large Eurasian brown bear ran out of the woods and charged at him.Fortunately for Perrson, he knew bears are much more scared of us than we are of them. Standing his ground, he raised his arms and let out a primal yell. The very startled bear spun right around and ran back into...

    While the “War on Women” rhetoric may have contributed significantly to President Obama’s gaining a second term in 2012, in 2014 it couldn’t even get Sandra Fluke, the former Georgetown Law student who crusaded to make Jesuits pay for birth control, elected dog catcher. Well, she was really running for a seat in the California state Senate, but, given her retro campaign (she still lives in the halcyon days when Rush Limbaugh called her a naughty name), she probably couldn't have won the county dog catcher slot. No word yet on the actual dogcatcher races run on a "War on...

    Sandra Fluke, whose sole qualification for public office was being called a slut by Rush Limbaugh, has had a very long 15 minutes of fame, but they may be over. With 100 percent of the votes counted, she was decisively defeated by fellow Democrat Ben Allen, a veteran local school official, running for a seat left vacant by the retirement of incumbent State Senator Ted Lieu.

    LOS ANGELES, California -- Sandra Fluke, the feminist icon who rose to national prominence after being called a "slut" by conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, and after urging that Obamacare require religious institutions to cover abortion and birth control, has failed in her effort to win a seat in the California State Senate.

    I can’t believe I’m writing about “StopRush” again.Longtime readers will recall my extensive and groundbreaking research into the StopRush operation just after Limbaugh’s comments about Sandra Fluke in 2012, for which he apologized.I proved then that the operation — at least at that time — was a Media Matters astroturfed assault on Limbaugh’s advertiser base, based on a pre-existing plan just waiting for the right moment. Supposedly independent groups coordinated their efforts with an MMFA operative, and then tried to cover it up. My research led Limbaugh to activate his personal Twitter account to spread the results of my research....

    Democratic activist Sandra Fluke -- who is running for a state Senate seat in California -- leads her opponent by seven percentage points, according to a new survey from the Fluke campaign. Forty-one percent of voters in the poll of California’s 26th Senate District said they prefer Fluke. Ben Allen, a member of the Santa Monica-Malibu school board, took 34 percent. Twenty-five percent of voters in the Los Angeles area district remain undecided. Fluke holds advantages among Democratic voters (53 percent-25 percent) and non-affiliated voters (44 percent-28 percent). Her opponent leads among Republicans (58 percent-15 percent).

What they accomplished deserves more than a nod and lip service. We must honor them by making our generation's mark on the concerns facing women today. Unfortunately, that still includes goals we've fought too long for, like reproductive rights. Today is International Women's Day and March is Women's History Month.

In response, the comedian said, “I have a dream that we live in a nation where comedians are not judged by the color of their skin but by the humorous content of their schtick.

It’s our constitutional right. So now the GOP is limiting our access to both birth control AND abortion on demand.

    Freedom Is Not Free By Dr. Peter Jones As the Sixties cultural revolution reaches maturity, we need to remember that its fundamental rationale was the rejection of external authority and government control, for “sacred” individual liberty and independence, especially in sexual behavior.

In a recent article posted on The Aquila Report, Dr. Paul Kengor recalled the brilliant career of the recently deceased legal authority, Robert Bork.

According to Miller, Fluke would do a lot for her country if she would quit complaining about birth control. Last week, NBC’s “The Tonight Show” host Jay Leno confronted Miller about his politics and told him why he identifies with Democrats over Republicans. One of those reasons Leno alleged was the Republican “war on women,” which Miller responded to in...

    What's most interesting about the Fluke comment, though, is that it points to a central cultural contradiction of feminism. Libertarian feminists sometimes argue that left-wing ones aren't "true feminists" because they want women to be dependent, albeit on government rather than on men. But feminism is about sexual equality or female supremacy, not freedom or independence. As long as the government isn't masculine in character ("patriarchal"), its size and scope are irrelevant to feminism. When one considers the specific context of Fluke's above-quoted comment, however, it turns out to be as patriarchal a conception of government as one can imagine....

    During her Democratic National Convention speech last night, pro-abortion activist Sandra Fluke accused Paul Ryan of supporting a bill that “would allow pregnant women to die preventable deaths in our emergency rooms,” an attack on Ryan’s pro-life views. But the leader of one pro-life group says Fluke’s fiction ignores the fact that women are already dying in emergency rooms, but for different reasons — they are dying after failed abortions.“We have news for Sandra Fluke. Women are already dying in our emergency rooms from botched abortions while President Obama not only looks the other way. Just ask the family of...

    Apparently Big Guy was in favor of rejecting God and Jerusalem before he was against it. Still, the timing of the CHANGE-it-back move was not inspired. I mean, who needs the optic of half the DNC booing God? Three times! Sort of like Simon Peter. My informal polling indicates that smacking down God and Israel still doesn’t play well anywhere in fly-over. Butt other than that, this week’s DNC has been a spectacular venue for displaying BO’s ideas for America. So far I’ve sorted all the ideas and the speakers into 3 buckets: Nutz, Sluts and Butts. I’m certain you...

    Pro-abortion activist Sandra Fluke accused Paul Ryan of supporting a bill that “would allow pregnant women to die preventable deaths in our emergency rooms,” an attack on Ryan’s pro-life views.Speaking to the Democratic National Convention, Fluke pushed her pro-abortion views saying Mitt Romney and Ryan’s pro-life views would be bad for the country.“In that America, your new president could be a man who stands by when a public figure tries to silence a private citizen with hateful slurs. Who won’t stand up to the slurs, or to any of the extreme, bigoted voices in his own party,” she claimed. “It...

    Democrats are so out of touch, so delusional, they have given Sandra Fluke a prominent speaking platform at their convention. If you remember correctly, Fluke was the thirty year-old, feminist student at Georgetown who testified before Congress as a supposed victim of economic discrimination; i.e., Georgetown’s most affordable health plan – an annual $1559 policy - didn’t cover her need for “condoms” because oral contraceptives were not safe. Disregarding the fact that Miss Fluke is thirty years-old, and free condoms can routinely be found at health clinics and colleges across America, what does this say about personal responsibility, let alone...
