Tina Korbe notes;
Yes, Obama’s Super PAC accepted a $1 million donation from serial misogynist Bill Maher — but Obama had a “woman problem” long before that. While Obama has always worked assiduously to ensure that female voters will support him in his upcoming reelection bid (most recently even going so far as to call Sandra Fluke!), he apparently has been less concerned about the relative contentment of his female staffers.
Now the RNC returns DNC fire regarding their trumped-up War on Women campaign blitz starring the leftist activist Sandra Fluke (who plays a hopeless college student absolutely forced to overpay for condoms, etc.);

On second thought, the “why” really isn’t important, is it? You are a threat to them and their pre-conceived notions of what a woman is supposed to be, whatever that even is this week.
If you’re a woman today who just happens to be a conservative, you may be feeling a bit under siege. Any female public figure who happens to think the way you do is mercilessly attacked, lampooned, and demeaned; whether that woman be an actress or politician, or even the daughter of a US President, it’s open season.
The double standard with the way Democrats in public office and in the media treat women is about to come to a head. Conservative women are fighting back with their own political action committee, ShePAC.
ShePAC is fighting back;

I’ve been using your service for two years now. Generally, I’ve tolerated the CarboniteUI.exe program constantly locking up so I have to physically kill the process using Task Manager, then restart it just so I can make sure the service is paused so I can watch a movie on Netflix.
Well, I’m due to auto-renew in June, and if you check, you’ll see that has just been canceled. The only reason I haven’t outright terminated the service is I don’t see any way to do so.
But for the left, who makes it a habit to attack the sponsors of any conservative pundit they disagree with, no apology is ever enough.
Carbonite exec David Friend issued this statement, and the statement issued via Twitter below;
…We are immediately discontinuing our advertisements on Limbaugh. Here is statement from Carbonite CEO David Friend: cbnt.it/x4788a

You are a private business and can spend your advertising dollars any way you see fit, with any personality that fits your business image.
I am a consumer and customer, and am likewise free to spend my money (so far, Obamacare notwithstanding) anyplace I see fit; to pay for services provided by businesses that fit my needs. I’m not much on boycotts, but with your caving in to demands made mostly by people who likely don’t even use your service, well that just doesn’t sit right with me. They feign outrage over any slight, any discomfort; and any inconvenience is intolerable. You caving to that only fuels thier attacks against others, and I won’t pay for that.
There are other services such as Mozy Online Backup, as well as others who are banging on my Twitter door wanting to be let in. Others including Dropbox and Zoolz are actually free up to a point; it’s not like we don’t have choices.
The whole brouhaha in a nutshell, Rush was right to apologize, however;
… let’s keep in mind that it was Fluke who made her sexual activity a matter of national political debate by insisting that the government pass laws and regulations forcing employers and insurers to provide her free contraception, and apparently as much as she and others demand. It’s Republicans who believe that contraception should remain a private affair, and that employers and insurers should be free to decide whether to cover contraception for their employees and customers or not. Democrats used Fluke to demand that those choices be stripped from private enterprises and instead be forced by the executive branch to entirely subsidize contraception.
Sandra Fluke claims to speak for women, but as this student at Georgetown explains, not all women agree;
I’m a proud Georgetown woman upset about another Georgetown woman who may have no pride at all. How else do you explain - Ms. Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown Law student, now famous for testimony she never gave – jumping up to talk about her sex life (with the House Minority Leader and with the liberal media) and ask for the cost of her sex life to be subsidized by other students at a Jesuit School?
No, she doesn’t speak for all women at Georgetown, and further, she may actually have been planted there;
For me the interesting part of the story is the ever-evolving “coed”. I put that in quotes because in the beginning she was described as a Georgetown law student. It was then revealed that prior to attending Georgetown she was an active women’s right advocate. In one of her first interviews she is quoted as talking about how she reviewed Georgetown’s insurance policy prior to committing to attend, and seeing that it didn’t cover contraceptive services, she decided to attend with the express purpose of battling this policy. During this time, she was described as a 23-year-old coed. Magically, at the same time Congress is debating the forced coverage of contraception, she appears and is even brought to Capitol Hill to testify. This morning, in an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, it was revealed that she is 30 years old, NOT the 23 that had been reported all along.
In other words, folks, you are being played. She has been an activist all along and the Dems were just waiting for the appropriate time to play her.
While she is described as a “third year law student” they always fail to mention that she is also the past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice.
You were played, Mr. Friend, as were her willing accomplices in the media, and anyone else who believed she was some poor outraged girl with a yearly $3,000 bill for contraceptives.
Well, maybe you can contact Sandra Fluke and have her replace me as one of your customers. Maybe Nancy Pelosi.
Decide if you’re a Frum or a Breitbart. Squirm or struggle. Let the left destroy the few non-left voices out there or fight back. Now.

Many people don’t like Mark Levin, don’t like his voice, passion, whatever; but this is a speech you need to listen to.
Levin opened by saying (essentially) “We are here to Occupy the White House and the Senate.”
He said “Progress means the ability for each and every one of us to be able to make our own decisions regarding our own lives.”
We’re headed down a bad road, people, and our failure will absolutely dwarf anything that will happen in Greece or anywhere in the European Union.
The Occupy garbage is just the start. Now it can be laughed at, mocked, and ridiculed, but given enough time and leniency by the Democrat-controlled cities where the rabble is camping out, it’ll become more violent (it already is), and more people will get hurt.
November 2012 is critical to our survival as a nation. Not only do we need to kick as many Democrats out as possible, we need to get control of the “moderate” GOP as well. How do they continue to compromise with unconstitutional ideas and schemes? How can there even be ”compromise” with that? Power is all they want, and it’s up to us to take it back, from both sides.
Now share the video below with everyone you know.

If you listened to KFI in the morning on 9/11, this is for you just the way you originally heard it
Tuesday morning started with my alarm going off at 5AM Pacific Daylight Time, and the voices of the KFI Morning Team of Bill Handel, Paul (The Wall), Ken Nolan, Rich Marotta, Michelle Kube, and Ken Gallagher blasted me awake.
Getting my car started and headed from Camarillo to Moorpark, California at 5:30AM entailed a full cup of coffee, a fresh smoke fired up, and KFI. Rush gave his Morning Update. Rush was just losing his hearing then, and his voice is noticeably different in the Morning Update, you’ll hear. What follows is the show in its entirety, hour-by-hour, as it happened. Commercials went away after the 5 o’clock hour, and shock and confusion reigned at KFI, as everywhere else;

RUSH: SusanAnne Hiller, AmericanThinker.com, pretty good piece here, and I say that because it sort of illustrates a point that I, El Rushbo, have been making for many, many moons now: “Why Obama Can’t Drop Health Care Reform — What the GOP fails to realize is that President Obama is fighting so hard on health care reform because the issue, for him, is finishing the work of Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights movement. Obama has some influential company in this belief. In 2007, the Sacramento Bee covered Kaiser Permanente CEO George Halvorson: ‘There really are two Americas when it comes to health care — the fully insured, primarily white America and the disproportionately uninsured minority America. More than half of the total uninsured people in this country are minority. That fact alone should make the need to cover everyone in America a pure ethical imperative. This issue is not about economics — it is about equality. Universal coverage should be the next major civil rights issue for this country to face.”
I think this is only one element of Obama’s obsession with health care, but I don’t doubt for a moment that SusanAnne Hiller is right here, that there’s a chip on this guy’s shoulder about minority inequality, unfairness, and all that. It’s what he’s been taught, it’s the way he was raised, and he’s going to settle the score and he’s going to return the nation’s wealth to its rightful owners who of course have had all of theirs stolen from them by evil people. “Halvorson also wrotean article in 2007 equating health reform to the ‘unfinished business of the Civil Rights agenda.’ Halvorson discusses the disparities between the races and health care coverage and states: ‘If we considered no other issue than racial and ethnic disparities, this nation’s leadership — like the leadership of a number of states — should be moving this country down the path to an American form of universal coverage as quickly as possible. There is no more vital or meaningful way for us to honor and extend the great legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.’
“Why should we care about what Halvorson says? This is the same George Halvorson who has met with Obama and has had several meetings in 2009 with key figures in health care, including: ‘March 27 – Meeting with Keith Fontenot, who manages the financial resources of government agencies related to health. June 5 – Meeting with Peter Orszag, director of the CBO. July 23 – Meeting with Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). July 24 – Meeting with Sarah Fenn, White House assistant.’ Additionally, Halvorson was the only insurance executive to meet with Kathleen Sebelius. And just how far off is Halvorson from MLK’s legacy correlation? Most of the last years of Martin Luther King have been lost — especially worth noting because most of his speeches were recorded. MLK challenged the nation’s priorities during his final years, as noted in this article: But after passage of civil rights acts in 1964 and 1965, King began challenging the nation’s fundamental priorities. He maintained that civil rights laws were empty without ‘human rights’ — including economic rights. For people too poor to eat at a restaurant or afford a decent home, King said, anti-discrimination laws were hollow.”
Anyway, it goes on to make the point here that it was a big deal to Dr. King, and she makes this point at the end of the piece: “Obama is disingenuous when he says he seeks GOP input, as Republicans have twice introduced their version of health reform (here) and reintroduced it in late January 2010. He continuously says the GOP has not offered any ideas or a plan for health care reform, but he changes his story when he’s face-to-face with the GOP. The GOP must grasp that when Obama states that ‘[h]ope and change have been the causes of my life,’ he is not lying. They are just that! He will not change course or come to the realization that his policies are destroying the private sector and bankrupting the country, as some pundits predict. When you look at health care reform, each political party is looking through different glasses; their visions and the goals of reform are polar opposites. The Democrats want a Medicare-for-all type of reform, with the federal government controlling the entire U.S. health care system … Obama’s policies reflect who he is; they are the vehicles that masquerade as hope and change, which are the mechanisms for social justice and economic justice — ‘meaningful legislation’ through wealth redistribution. And now, through health care ‘reform,’ Obama will attempt to finish the job of applying positive liberties (what the government can do for you),” I would say to you, “ultimately attempting to forsake the Constitution, which is a charter of negative liberties (what the government cannot do to you), to apply the final judgment of the Civil Rights movement.”
Now, that’s part of it. I don’t doubt any of that, but there’s also the full-fledged desire on the part of Obama because he’s a far-left radical. It’s about far more than the Constitution and negative and positive rights. It’s about far more than Martin Luther King. It is about the empowerment of the Democrat Party in perpetuity to control virtually every aspect of our lives, and that’s why he’s not going to let it go, and it’s why the Republicans ought to have nothing to do — they’ve already got a plan in place, the trick — they’ve already got a plan in place to make this happen anyway. And going up there and providing any kind of assistance whatsoever — and I know there are people all over the place that disagree with me. “The president invites you, you gotta go, you gotta go, the president invites you. Gotta go up there and make your case, use this as an opportunity to tell the American people.” That’s not the way it’s going to happen. You can’t have I don’t know how many Republicans are going to be in the meeting up against one president who’s called the meeting and have them have any kind of opportunity here to upstage him, that’s not the point of this. There ought to be no fear in being the party of “no,” not on this issue. Even the Democrats are starting to peel away from Obama now. He needs the Republicans because they’re the ones whose poll numbers are up, he needs the Republicans to save himself and get his rear end out of the fire. And they will probably, probably cooperate.
Susan, what can I say? You totally excelled, and your piece on American Thinker, excellent as it was, I’m sure was just the beginning.
Not bad, considering he can’t hear the music!
