Obama Pandering, Sandra Fluke, Obnoxious Freeloader

Mar 3, 2012 by

by Donna Garner –

Today Obama telephoned Sandra Fluke with a word of praise for her brave testimony in front of Nancy Pelosi’s cooked up contraceptive “hearing.”  Obama is obviously pandering to the women’s vote, and we will need to remember this incident when we go to the ballot box in November 2012 to vote him out of the White House.

Sandra Fluke, a reproductive rights activist at Georgetown Law School, received national recognition when she testified that we hard-working taxpayers should pay for her contraceptives so that she can continue having promiscuous sex!

However, Fluke (probably unmarried or possibly LGBT) is a law student at Georgetown Law School, one of the most expensive law schools in the country — $23,432.50 per semester.  Therefore, when she testified so passionately about the hard times that she is having financially because of the cost of her contraceptives, most hard-working Americans could not quite identify “with her pain.”

Rush Limbaugh called Fluke a “slut,” describing her as someone who is demanding that  taxpayers pay for her promiscuous activities, thus making us taxpayers a type of  “pimp.”  Rush definitely has a point. If we taxpayers pay for Fluke’s contraceptives so that she can continue having immoral sexual relationships outside of marriage, then we are a part of enabling her poor choices.

Today gutless advertisers under pressure from the Fluke proponents began cancelling ads on the Rush Limbaugh Show: Quicken Loans, Sleep Train, and Sleep Number

Many Americans believe in personal responsibility.  We know that the only way to avoid sexually transmitted diseases is to remain abstinent until marriage and then to live in a monogamous relationship between one man and one woman.

Why don’t we do our part to push back and call the following businesses, telling them that we refuse to buy their products unless they continue their advertising on the Rush Limbaugh Show. Let’s remind these companies that we will also tell our friends and families not to purchase these products either.

Quicken Loans – Client Relations — (800) 863-4332.

Sleep Train – Customer Service — Phone: (800) 919-2337

Sleep Number —  Commercial Sales Department –1-800-394-4735 or 1-800-391-5508

"promiscuous college students"

Excerpt from this newsletter:

Pelosi’s Priorities

This week Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) convened her own “hearing” on Obama’s contraception mandate. Unlike the official hearing held by House Republicans, Pelosi’s hearing was not about religious liberty, but about why taxpayer’s should be forced to pick up the tab for promiscuous college students.

Sandra Fluke, a “reproductive rights activist” and a student at Georgetown Law School (a Catholic institution) was there to explain the burden students are enduring paying for their own contraception. It’s Leap Day, not April Fool’s Day. I am not making this up, folks. Here is part of Fluke’s testimony:

“Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy (Georgetown’s insurance does not cover contraception). Without insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during [three years of] law school. … Just last week, a married female student told me that she had to stop using contraception because she and her husband just couldn’t fit it into their budget anymore.”
So now she is claiming a “right” to free contraception paid for by you, churches and insurance companies.

 

One conservative columnist checked with a local drug store and discovered that it sells condoms for a dollar. He writes: “That $3,000 would buy her 3,000 condoms — or, 1,000 a year. …Assuming it’s not a leap year, that’s 1,000 divided by 365 — or having sex 2.74 times a day, every day, for three straight years.”

The Weekly Standard reports that a Washington, D.C., Target pharmacy sells generic birth control pills for $9.00 a month. That would be $324 over three years. According to a Target employee, “That’s the price without insurance.”  And yet another conservative journalist noted, “There are three federally funded Planned Parenthood clinics in Washington, D.C., — none being more than 3.2 miles from the Georgetown Law School,” where contraceptives are often free.

If this is the best case Obama and Pelosi can make for forcing religious institutions to violate their core values, I think we can win that debate — IF we are willing to fight it. And what does it say about our culture today when a young female student at a Catholic institution can without any shame whatsoever suggest that she is entitled to contraception at taxpayer expense?

My friends, this is a perfect example of Pelosi’s priorities, why Barack Obama must be defeated and why ObamaCare must be repealed by a conservative Congress.

“Barack Obama is trying to cut healthcare benefits for our soldiers while he is trying to force the Catholic Church and other religious institutions to provide free contraceptives to college students.”

Mitt, Call Your Office

The last thing I want to do is cause trouble for any of the possible GOP presidential nominees. As I have said before, I will support any of them in the general election. Governor Mitt Romney has new momentum now, but yesterday we got another reminder of why he is not connecting with many conservatives.

Fresh off his Michigan win, the governor was asked by an Ohio reporter whether he supported the Blunt-Rubio bill, which would reinforce the long-standing conscience exemptions for faith-based institutions that the Obama Administration has repeatedly attacked. (Earlier today Harry Reid’s Senate killed the Blunt-Rubio bill by a 51-to-48 vote. Every Republican but one voted the right way, while 50 out of 53 Democrats voted against religious liberty.)

The reporter noted that Santorum was for the bill, and asked Romney whether he had taken a position. Governor Romney replied, “I’m not for the bill,” and then proceeded to attack Santorum, insinuating that Santorum wanted to ban contraception. I have no doubt that the reporter was trying to tempt Romney into attacking Santorum. Sadly, Romney fell for it. In my view, it is always wrong to use Democrat talking points to attack a fellow conservative.

Banning contraception is not what the Blunt-Rubio bill is about. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) is at the top of every list of potential vice presidential nominees. Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) has endorsed Romney. This legislation is a top priority for virtually every pro-family, pro-life organization in Washington.

So why was Romney’s first instinct to assume that there is something wrong with a bill drafted by one of his supporters and one of our brightest rising stars? Why did he go after Santorum rather than Obama? Even if the reporter phrased the question poorly, all Romney had to say was, “I need more information before commenting on that” or “I suspect you’ve got the facts wrong.” Give conservatives the benefit of the doubt, Governor, and PLEASE go after Obama!

When Mitt Romney speaks from a prepared text, his speeches are reassuring. But when he’s unscripted, he often leaves conservatives confused. A Santorum spokesman responded, saying, “You can take Mitt out of Massachusetts, but you can’t take Massachusetts out of Mitt.” And that is what has so many conservatives worried.

In short order, the governor’s campaign issued a statement saying he misunderstood the question and does in fact support the bill. I’m glad to hear it. But the candidates should know by now that the media will try to trip them up. It is only going to get worse as we get closer to Election Day.

Governor, call your office. You will need the conservative base if you are going to replace Barack Obama.

The Cost Of ObamaCare

As we are learning every day, ObamaCare is going to cost us more than just trillions in new taxes and entitlement spending. It is costing us our freedom. And as Catholic leaders have been warning, there is a huge cost to religious liberty.

What is the potential cost to the Catholic Church and other religious institutions that refuse Obama’s latest mandate to pay for abortion-inducing drugs? According to Politico, “The IRS is empowered to levy a tax penalty on noncompliant religious employers of $100 per day for each employee in their health plan.”

That means a Catholic charity or hospital with 100 employees could be slapped with a $3.65 million fine every year. That would be the cost for the Church and other religious groups if they choose to exercise the freedom they have always enjoyed in this country. That is not freedom. It is extortion.
