Topic - Sandra Fluke
Sandra Fluke of California became the latest high-profile foot soldier from Democrats’ “war on women” campaign to announce a bid for office Wednesday, saying she will seek a state Senate seat.
Sandra Fluke, who tangled memorably with conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh over insurance coverage of birth control services under Obamacare, is laying the groundwork to run for Congress.
Notable pro-abortion activist Sandra Fluke, who made national headlines for insisting that the federal government should pay for the procedure on demand, has filed paperwork to run for retiring Sen. Henry Waxman's seat.
Sandra Fluke, who grabbed national headlines for campaigning in favor of full federal funding for birth control, said she's seriously considering a run for the congressional seat being vacated by Rep. Henry Waxman.
Rep. Henry Waxman, one of Congress' fiercest negotiators and a policy expert on everything from clean air to health care, will retire at the end of the year after four decades in the House.
While Sarah Palin quietly continued her national tour to promote her new book "Good Tidings, Great Joy," MSNBC host Martin Bashir quietly resigned from the network Wednesday, three weeks after broadcasting blatant slurs against the former Alaska governor.
Though a reported $684 million in taxpayer funds has been designated to promote Obamacare, health care providers are still failing to attract young, healthy Americans who will shore up the cost. Their answer? Frat boy talk is the best outreach, at least according to the Colorado Consumer Health Initiative — which recently wooed males with a raucous pitch for "bro-surance" that included a beer keg.
Democrats launched the "war on women," but they didn't first sweep their side of the battlefield for land mines. Anthony Weiner, Eliot Spitzer and San Diego Mayor Bob Filner have dominated the headlines for their atrocious disrespect and sexual harassment of women. Yet the Democratic leadership is hiding in a foxhole.
Religiously devout employers who object to insuring contraceptives for their employees under President Obama's new health care law are closer to resolving — either through compromise or through the courts — their long-standing fight with the Obama administration under the banner of religious freedom.
Once again I see that President Obama hasn't got a clue when it comes to leading this country or representing the American people. His latest comment regarding the National Security Agency secret-document leaker Edward Snowden comes while he is spending the taxpayers' money on his supposedly official trip to Africa. He came out in public last week and stated that he is not going to call the Chinese or Russian presidents in regard to capturing Mr. Snowden because he "shouldn't have to" ("Obama on Snowden: 'I'm not going to be scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker,'" Web, June 27).
Rush Limbaugh just might pack his suitcases and leave Cumulus, a media shake-up that would leave 40 stations around the country without the voice of one of the nation's biggest names — and advertising draw — in radio history.
More than 500 people were killed in Chicago last year. Yet Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel still found time to berate the fast-food franchise Chick-fil-A for not sharing "Chicago values" apparently because its founder does not approve of same-sex marriage.
I wonder, as we begin 2013 and face four more years of this insufferable poseur in the White House, where Sandra Fluke might be.
Political punditry threatens to turn us all into cynics. Maybe conservatives are not cynical enough. Sadly, though, cynicism detracts from the kind of heartfelt "live our beliefs" brand of conservatism that defines most Americans.
Time magazine has named President Obama as its Person of the Year for 2012. This has been, of course, controversial, and for the usual reasons: Much like with the president's Nobel Peace Prize, one has to wonder what he actually did to deserve it.
"It is official!" she wrote Wednesday. "Thanks so much to everyone who encouraged me to #runsandrarun, your support means the world to me."
