Does anyone wonder how many delegates fornicated with Sandra Fluke over the course of the convention? It makes sense as to why Bill Clinton was one of the last speakers, and Sandra Fluke was earlier. I honestly do think that Bill Clinton and Sandra Fluke fornicated with one-another some time at that convention.
Great post! I noticed KP does not appear to be leaning as far lefty these days, I hope it lasts! I have you linked up at my place, by the way.
Yeah, I don't understand. What is different now? Sandra Fluke didn't say anything I wouldn't have expected her so say. EXCEPT:That she was waiting for a man to come flying to her rescue. I didn't expect that that from this "empowered woman." Funny how it's always the most "empowered woman" that are always the first and the loudest to claim that they are victims and need to be saved by the big strong man.
She doesn't represent women. She only represents herself. I hope her 15 minutes of fame is finally over, but I'll probably never be ever to see the back of her.
Let's line up all of Uncle Clinton's "ladies" and see if they feel that their voice has been silenced!
Sandra Fluke is a "poster girl" for the shallow and hypocritical attitudes the "left" has toward women in this country. They've reduced women to a few "body parts" - namely their reproductive organs. Maybe Ms. Fluke, privileged young woman that she is, has no idea how readily available free or nearly free birth control is in this country because she has never had to go to Planned Parenthood, never darkened the doors of a WalMart, and God forbid never asked her male partner to wear a condom. The "left" creates a false narrative about women's rights. Meanwhile where are the jobs, how about cheaper gas prices at the pump, how about controlling spiraling costs of food and other essential items? These are the "real concerns" that "real women" are concerned about in this country! Kudos to you Kirsten Powers! We stand in solidarity with you, not with the vapid, self-serving, whiny Flukes of this world!
I've come to expect embellishment from both parties and there have been some doosies over the last couple of weeks. It is my opinion, however, that Ms. Fluke's speech was beyond embellishments and instead full of hate and blatant untruths. When she said the Republicans would: have pregnant women die preventable deaths in emergency rooms, redefine rape, and decide which domestic violence victims deserve help, I was in shock. I think I was more shocked by her facial expressions which were almost evil at times. Maybe that was intentional drama, but her rant was scary.
I know these speeches are about getting politicians elected, but this war on women strategy makes me wonder how I could have missed all the battles. I say that as an African American women who served proudly in the military and retired at the highest enlisted rank. I say it as a women who works for an agency where a women is the director and many of the top directors are also women. I say it as a women with two grown daughters who own their reproductive decisions and assume responsibility for their choices as did I.
Rape redefined - SHOW ME and please don't use the Ryan clip where he mentions "method of conception" because he never meant redefine rape. And the domestic abuse comment has me baffled because I don't know what she's referencing. Can someone point me to what she's referring to because I like to be informed before I make comment.
First off: thank you for your service in your nation's military.
Second: the "rape redefined" crap was actually talking about an abortion bill that would have severely limited taxpayer-funded abortions for rape victims. It would have, FOR THE PURPOSES OF FUNDING ABORTION, defined a "rape worthy of the funds" as forcible, traumatic rape, removing statutory and date-rape drugs from the list to receive blood money. It did not affect the states' ability to continue its funding, and most of all, DID NOT CHANGE THE CRIMINAL DEFINITION OF RAPE.
Anyone that claims Republicans want to "redefine rape" need to remember that an economic definition and a criminal definition of rape are different.
but frankly, I don't understand statutory rape. Teenagers these days are sluts, man and woman alike. Why is it still a crime, when so many wannabe harlots do it?
To me, "rape" is any time a woman does not consent to sex. That includes forcible and date-raping. The punishment for non-statutory rape should be DEATH or life in prison. It's time we put fear into the abominations that actually do that to women. If they'd never leave the big house or get tabled for their crimes, maybe we'd see justice for the victims!
For years, federal laws restricting the use of government funds to pay for abortions have included exemptions for pregnancies resulting from rape or incest. (Another exemption covers pregnancies that could endanger the life of the woman.) But the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act," a bill with 173 mostly Republican co-sponsors that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has dubbed a top priority in the new Congress, contains a provision that would rewrite the rules to limit drastically the definition of rape and incest in these cases.
You are correct. -but to say they're "redefining rape" somehow implies that the GOP wants to decriminalize date-rape and similar non-forcible types and stop seeking justice for these victims, which are just as raped as forcible rape.
You are blatantly lying about the GOP if you think they're "redefining rape" for any purpose other than to slow and ultimately eliminate the slushing of our tax dollars to the slaughter of innocent zygotes, embryos, fetuses, and even late third-trimester babies.
Rape is sex without consent, Micheal Long.
The punishment for non-statutory rape (AKA an adult and minor consenting to fornicate) should be DEATH or life in prison.
I dare you to say Republicans hate women if they want men to be truly punished for what they do to women. I NEVER hear Democrats pushing for greater punishments against rape. They're too busy banning thirty two ounce Coca-Cola cups and stopping people from using lethal force when they must defend themselves and their property.
I dare you to tell me that wanting the death penalty for rape is a "war on women". We're the party of capital punishment.
You want a war on women? How about when the Supreme Court declared capital punishment for rape an unconstitutionally "cruel and unusual punishment"? Or how about when Ted Kennedy failed to report that accident the night he and a woman drove into a car? Guess who died? Or, hey, remember what Bill Clinton did to Monica and all sorts of female staffers? Or how about women receiving less pay in the White House than men?
Your party is better at fighting women than us... unless, of course, you're so obbsessed about sex that you want to have it without consequence and then want to kill the result of your decision to fornicate.
Abortion should ONLY be illegal in the cases of rape and the mother's life in danger. There are NO exceptions otherwise.
Somehow implies? The article (and the original language in the bill, should you wish to read it), speaks for itself.
"With this legislation, which was introduced last week by Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), Republicans propose that the rape exemption be limited to "forcible rape." This would rule out federal assistance for abortions in many rape cases, including instances of statutory rape, many of which are non-forcible. For example: If a 13-year-old girl is impregnated by a 24-year-old adult, she would no longer qualify to have Medicaid pay for an abortion."
"Given that the bill also would forbid the use of tax benefits to pay for abortions, that 13-year-old's parents wouldn't be allowed to use money from a tax-exempt health savings account (HSA) to pay for the procedure. They also wouldn't be able to deduct the cost of the abortion or the cost of any insurance that paid for it as a medical expense."
To be fair, they did back out of that position, but only after a considerable public backlash. Nonetheless, their original proposal did seek to redefine rape as defined by the current applicable law.
No lies. Facts.
After an emotional floor debate, the House of Representatives on Thursday passed the so-called Protect Life Act, which prohibits women from buying health insurance plans that cover abortion under the Affordable Care Act and makes it legal for hospitals to deny abortions to pregnant women with life-threatening conditions.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), a proponent of the bill, told voters last week that its purpose is "to ensure that no taxpayer dollars flow to health care plans that cover abortion and no health care worker has to participate in abortions against their will."
H.R. 358, introduced by Rep. Joe Pitts (R-Pa.), goes beyond the issue of taxpayer dollars to place actual limits on the way a woman spends her own money. The bill would prevent a woman from buying a private insurance plan that includes abortion coverage through a state health care exchange, even though most insurance plans currently cover abortion.
An even more controversial aspect of the bill would allow hospitals that are morally opposed to abortion, such as Catholic institutions, to do nothing for a woman who requires an emergency abortion procedure to save her life. Current law requires that hospitals give patients in life-threatening situations whatever care they need, regardless of the patient's financial situation, but the Protect Life Act would make a hospital's obligation to provide care in medical emergencies secondary to its refusal to provide abortions.
Thank you for your service to our country! Ms. Fluke's speech was indeed scary--she obviously has little regard for women who live in countries where women's rights are practically non-existent. She needs to grow up.
I wouldn't believe she actually tweeted these things if my eyes didn't see them. Wow! I still don't like her opinions, but in this case I agree with her.
Good for you, Kirsten. You see, Kirsten is a real Democrat. Or at least, what used to be a real Democrat. Sorry to break the news to you , Kirsten, but your party has left you.
I've always had a love/hate (more like/dis-like) thing going on with Kirsten, but even with working on FOX and her liberal views showing even when I could not agree at ALL with her.
The last year or so she seems to have been more grounded and realizes she has to survive after OBOZO, and seems to have come around to some good old COMMON SENSE.
Now I can say.... LOVE you KP, LOVE YOU ! I LOVE YOU KIRSTEN !!!!!!!!
You are quite the example for young women out there, and pretty too !!!
I am so fluking tired of that Sandra woman, she makes me want to SPEW myself.
How can Dems fall so low and strident with the country watching????
I agree with RUSH, these people ( Dem delegates) looks like ignoramases and MORONS.
Big Dog Billy was spewing so much, he went 20 minute too long talking about how great HE WAS.
The man had a REPUBLICAN CONGRESS, remember that as we build a new government
before it is too late to save OUR REepublic. Yes BEN, we want to keep it !
I could not tell the difference between Bill's MIS-information and his DIS-infomation.
Someone should have pulled the "PACE" (yes pace) card on him and hookered him out of there.
Maybe Sandra had a condom on her (that we paid for) for emergency self promotion purposes.
He made Dear Leader wait 30 extra minutes for his fake hug and gestures, oops.
Big Dog - 0
PREZI ----I, I, I (Incomplete, what, huh?)
Bite-Me ---W ? - for- (Who cares what this IDIOT thinks anymore ?)
This is what happens when you idiotic Progressive Dem DUFUSES temp the LORD...........
I approve this message....
San Antonio, Tx
The libs will just say Powers is a stooge singing for he supper.
But the Dem Bosses surely think everyone is stupid. And if you look at the Dem drones Peter Shiff interviewed at the convention, you could see where the Bosses got the idea everyone is stupid.
She is HOT. I know she is smart, but when she talks all I can see is that she's hot. She is not a true feminist because feminists are not that hot!
(sarcasm-aka PC bait)
good to see Powers make muliple statements regarding the topic. Shows she's brewing over the matter.
Like I stated previously, I seen her waver on a couple of things lately and not be as adamant as you would expect on others.
If you're a regular viewer of Fox, have you noticed the new way Beckel and Williams handle the question and statements of other commentators? They put on a look of bewilderment as though they can't believe what their hearing. I believe they are so befuddled that they use this as a way of not defending the stances of the left. Beckel is a slobbering moron that uses his ex drug use and alcohol abuse as a distraction from the conversation at hand. Juan Williams is the most illogical, most hypocritical commentator I see around. Beckel, a joke, the Lefts Custer back in the day. Between then and now hes been a Charlie Sheen role model.
When the truth smacks you in the face as much as it has done to Kirsten here on Fox, you have to see the light eventually. Now, if only Tamara Holder would turn as well. Oops, no, wait. My bad. She will burst into flames before she sees the light. Unlike Powers, she is truly without a clue.
So the democratic party seems women as sex objects and the only things women are capable of being interested in is contraceptives and abortions
So the democratic party sees women as sex objects and they only thing women are capable of being interested in is contraceptives and abortions
Did you see those repulsive 'Code Stink' demonstrators in Florida during the RNC convention? the ones dressed as giant vaginas? THAT says a lot about how the dems and other commies see women - as genitalia who can be taught to vote democrat. They see no other use for them.
Fluke is dishing out the usual "victimization" crap to women. It is the common progressive poison pill to point out to every woman, person of color, or sexual deviant that they are a "victim". This gets the sheep to follow the wolf with the promise of getting what they want for "free" on our tax dollars that are not free! It is insulting to all of human kind and it's time to kick these people out on their keisters! Powers doesn't fool me. She sees a sinking ship and is trying to keep the "balance" she is paid to portray on Fox News. Too bad Beckel and Williams are too brain washed to see the writing on the wall. Then again...I can't wait to see all of their heads explode on November 6th!
Get her on The Five and get rid of Bob and Juan! She, at least is an intelligent, thinking Liberal who thinks before she talks.
What in the world has happened to Kirsten Powers? Has she seen the light? She used to be such an automaton for Obama.
Well Kirsten it appears the darkness of deception that is the democrat party is starting to unveil itself to you. The deception that has been played out, and you supported, seems to be bringing you to the light. Repubs are not not perfect BUT they are more about truth than the left. We have a seat for you whenever you choose to occupy it.
Curious. It seems to me Powers was one of the more rabid defenders of our own little Muslim Sister, Huma Abadein. Yet she is indicting the handiwork of our allies, new and threadbare, Muslims all. She is off the rez. She will be Bookered. Watch for walkback and possibly tears.
The sad part about this article is that most of the children I saw on screen at the DNC probably DON'T have someone to tell them it's all BS. GET 'EM WHILE THEIR YOUNG, EH DEMS?
Apparently Sandra Fluke who is supposed to be studying law forgot the 1st amendment to the constitution....The Right to Free Speech. Oh! I forgot. The Democrats don't consider the US Constitution as their law.... "they are laws of negative liberties" Barack Hussein Obama.
Don't forget that Powers is still a mindless liberal.
Really Kirsten we're better off now??? $6 T in new debt and excessive regulations?? An ever-expanding Fedzilla that wants to control every aspect of our lives? Obamacare with the largest tax increase in history? It's death panels that will put bureaucrats in charge of who lives and dies? Dodd-Frank?
Powers should be ashamed of herself and gets no credit from me. I don't care how much she criticizes Fluke, that above article negates all of that!
If she (Sandra Fluke) lived in a country that follows sharia, her birth control would be covered, for sure.
Every birth she would be forced to have would be very controlled. Not necessarily medically or "sanitarily" controlled, but definitely controlled.
can't believe fluke hasn't inked a book deal yet-- impossible not to believe she's got her eye on a large payday. noticed fluke opted out on the vagina cape, perhaps she didn't want to get herself overly wet while wrapped in such a costume.
Well, lucky for you, that the word God was just recently added to the Democratic platform, and the countries you mentioned were snubbed by adding Jerusalem back as the capital of Israel, or I'd have invited you into Republican Party because you sure sound like me, a Republican woman.
Poor Kirsten still feels attached to Obama, as if Obama has principles she can take pride in, like voting 3 times to kill live-birth babies who slipped past the abortionist's attempt to kill it, like lying through smiling teeth, like seeking to destroy American greatness by raking in all responsibilities of life into government's lap, ... Poor Kirsten.
Kirsten, take off your blinders, will you. You are waking up about Fluke. Now wake up about the guy who hugs her and parades her in front of the American public!!
I thank God my daughters, all younger than Ms. Fluke, are already light years ahead of her.
Women like Fluke are the other side of the coin. One side is Playboy. The other are the Fluke Feminists. Both sides are fixated on certain female body parts. Playboy concerns itself with the outward parts, and the Fluke Feminists concern themselves with the interior parts.
Excuse me while I busy myself with being an adult, an American, a woman with a brain and a heart who is no one's victim and who knows that in this country, women are not silenced.
Fluke is embarrassing. But at least I can point to her and tell my daughters, "You don't want to be this woman."
Because of the floor fight over putting God & Jerusalem back into the platform the whole schedule was thrown off. Fluke was supposed to be hidden before the prime time network coverage - but, instead, she was at the top of the hour for all to see. If she had remained hidden then Kristen would have remained silent ... but because everybody got to see Ms. Fluke for who she is & hear what she said - they had to circle he wagons. All in all this DNC convention is being managed nearly as bad as Obama trashed US economy.
Once in a while Kirsten sways into the truth. One day she may wake up and find that the Democrat party has left her behind and become a republican (but I won't hold my breath).
