  • 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).

    Abortion radical Sandra Fluke is apparently so far out of the mainstream. she couldn’t even get the radical voters in California to support her bid for the state Senate. Fluke is best known for pushing the HHS mandate that forces religious groups to pay for birth control and abortion-causing drugs. No sooner did the abortion activist Sandra Fluke declare a bid for Congress than she aborted the campaign. sandraflukeFluke opted to go with plan B and eventually decided to seek a California state Senate seat instead. The Washington Examiner reports that her attempt at the state legislature didn’t go so...

    In California the candidacies easily getting the most press are those of Sandra Fluke and Marianne Williamson, running for Senate in District 26, and Congress in District 33, respectively. California’s primary elections will be held on June 3. ... Here is what is frightening about a Sandra Fluke candidacy: she is a partisan hack who cares more about being in the limelight than she actually cares about the causes for which she supposedly champions. There is nothing serious about her save that she wishes to remain a mouth piece for the Democrat party. We have a president who burst upon...

    (CNN) -- I can't help but feel humbled and grateful when I hear the stories of women who marched for women's rights in the 1970s and the suffragists who fought for the right to vote. 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. As we celebrate all that women have accomplished in the struggle for gender equality, we...

    The following is mostly satire. Comedian Jerry Seinfeld was criticized this week for not including minority comedians in his web comedy series. 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. This skin color obsession has got to go! It has even given us a mediocre dictator, instead of a Stalin we got a Mugabe!” As noted last week, Sandra Fluke was considering running for Congress in the district currently represented by Henry Waxman who...

    Democratic attorney and activist Sandra Fluke has decided against running for retiring Rep. Henry A.

My entire career has been devoted to the public interest, whether representing victims of human trafficking or advocating for working families,” Fluke said late Tuesday night. “I am committed to continuing that fight in Sacramento, working to protect our environment, ensure our access to health care, and create the...

    Women's rights activist Sandra Fluke appears to be moving forward with a run for Congress. Fluke has filed with the California state Democratic Party to seek its endorsement in the race for retiring Rep. Henry Waxman's (D-Calif.) seat, according to the state party Web site. A state party delegate confirmed to Post Politics that Fluke has filed and paid the fee to appear on the ballot this weekend. Fluke hasn't officially announced her campaign or filed with the Federal Election Commission, and she didn't immediately return a request for comment. But filing for the state party's endorsement means she's now...

The birth control advocate who shook up the 2012 presidential campaign does not live in the 33rd district, but is eligible to run for the seat. She will be facing off against local Democratic stalwart Wendy Greuel, who narrowly missed winning the Los Angeles mayor's race last year, among others.

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Sandra Fluke, the birth-control activist who helped Democrats launch their "Republican war on women" theme in the 2012 elections, is reported to be considering a run for the seat being vacated by Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA). Waxman announced his retirement after 20 terms in the U.S. House on Thursday morning. Fluke, who reports her profession as "Social Justice Attorney," is from Los Angeles. The field of potential Democratic candidates is already filling quickly with state and local politicians who have bided their time for four decades, waiting for Waxman to leave an opening. But Fluke's national profile could draw big...

    A Russian Orthodox Church official in the Siberian region of Tomsk sparked controversy after publishing an article calling unwed mothers “whores.” Maxim Stepanenko, head of the Missionary Department of the Tomsk Diocese penned an article titled “So many whores in the land of Tomsk! We have no future!” The article, published on k-istine.ru on December 4 and since deleted, pointed to federal statistics saying that 28 percent of children in the Tomsk region were born to unwed mothers in 2012. According to a cached version of the original, Stepanenko also called on the “rehabilitation of the word ‘blyad’,” The word...

    Ed. note: This is cross-posted from The Huffington Post. See the original post here. Ensuring the full freedom of women as health care consumers to access essential preventative health services is a vital component of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). And nowhere are health decisions more personal or essential to keep in their hands, than those regarding reproductive health. The ACA was designed to ensure that health care decisions are made between a woman and her doctor, and not by her boss, or Washington politicians.Today, there are people trying to take this right away from women, by letting private, for-profit...
