The Administration´s New Fronts
on the War on Women

American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 1/27/2013 7:34:21 AM

This week, the administration that rode to a second term decrying a fictitious war on women by the opposition, opened real fronts on the war on women, perpetuating feminism´s worst inconsistencies through its contradictory programs and in the words and deeds of the avatar of these inconsistencies, Hillary Clinton, the "Athena" of low information women voters. Only CBS reporter Sheryl Attkisson by her persistence and competence keeps me from burying my head in shame.

`There´s at least a war coming on female smokers when they get hit with a 50% surtax on health insurance premiums next year. If they can super tax smokers,they could make obese people pay more also.

Clarice has exactly the right analysis. Women are to be treated the same as men but always with special sensitivity to their unique nature and differences. If you follow through on that you would arrive back at the age of chivalry!

Sheryl Attkinson´s Benghazi questions, as quoted by Clarice, are great. I have a few of my own, and I bet you all do too. Where, pray tell, were our Republican Congressmen and Senators? Where?!

First, calling Hillary the Athena of the low information voter is genuinely brilliant. Second, I grimly note the quote from the Marine vet in the article. My heart aches for him. Were I he, I would wonder why I bothered loving my country in the first place. All the real men and real women have been abandoned. it´s tragic. what a great Republic we once were.

Ditto, #3. One would hope that Sheryl Attkisson has plenty of insurance and lots of friends close-by. Sounds like she could be a candidate for arkancide. Hillary has a peculiar way of bearing a grudge.

#3
We are witnessing the "Dominate" phase of the Roman Empire. All politicians kneel before our Diocletian and seek to kiss the crease of his trousers. A little overstated but not by much.

In the replies after the article there is a long discussion among the posters about the problems of putting women in combat. Zippy, Leon and Valjar know all about the problems and that is exactly why they are proceeding down this path - it´s all part of their plan to ultimately destroy our military. But to what end? Sometimes I think that all of this is about zippy wanting to be the one to usher in the 12th Imam after the world is covered in blood from Islamic jihad.

In the last month I´ve become personally aware of another front in Obama´s War on Women, the lack of Estratest (hormone replacement pills that combine estrogen and testosterone.)

Remember all the hoopla about athletes using steroids? Well, methotestosterone has been declared a Class III controlled substance. It is the ingredient used in Estratest. Estratest used to have a waiver, but that was removed in the latest round of legislation. The manufacturers (the 3 left of 8 original makers) are no longer distributing Estratest because they now have to comply with federal DEA rules on controlled substances. The three pharmacies in my town have been out of Estratest since January 5th. They don´t expect delivery until mid-March. It’s taken several weeks for us to research and find out what was going on. I finally got an injection of the stuff last Thursday.

An "unintended" consequence to Obamacare and the socialists getting their faces into every aspect of life? Not too smart to have millions of postmenopausal women go without their hormone replacement therapy.

Don´t miss the UPDATE:

"UPDATE: Right on cue, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy illustrates the incoherent demands of Democratic women for combat role equality AND special treatment. On Friday, McCarthy told Piers Morgan that while she supports women in combat, they shouldn´t be required to use those nasty and evil assault rifles -- or, presumably, the even nastier machine guns, grenade launchers, mortars, and heavy artillery pieces.
She also mades it clear that she is clueless about what arms are rifles:
"CAROLYN MCCARTHY: I will tell you, if you talk to professionals, hunters and certainly sportsmen, they´ll tell you [an AR-15 is] not the gun to use. A rifle is more accurate."

Obama continues his War on America.
Women are to be masculinized.Just as Betty Friedan and her fellow communists destroyed the American family and eliminated the divorce laws to protect the homemaker and mother- they intend to destroy the will of the American military by ensuring that as that marine states -they cannot be expected to treat women in their personal live any differently.
Remember when the feminazis would attack any man who would have the effrontery to open a door for a woman?
Now young women are being subjected to serialmhookups, paying their way and sexually transmitted diseases rendering them sterile.
Sandra Fluke is their spokeswoman. 3000 a year doctor bill- how many abortions? Birth control pills are $108 per year.
How many more pregnancies during deployments or to avoid deployment?

The decision makers are ignoring studies which indicate that having women in combat isn´t the best idea. But think about it, the CIC´s wife is bigger than he is and he has worn mom jeans and ridden a women´s bicycle, so from his perspective, women are suited for the military. Some of the women in 0´s administration look large and macho enough to be well suited for combat -- Napolitano and his Supreme Court appointees come to mind.

Quite frankly, I do not know how a 105 pound woman will handle military weapons or survive Marine Corps basic training. Some women cannot handle larger than a .22 or .25 pistol.

The Poverty Hoax
American Thinker, by John Dietrich    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 4/8/2014 7:54:23 AM     Post Reply
A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

The clumsiness and incoherence, if not madness, of this administration’s foreign policies are creating havoc around the world. No one wrapped up the story of the chaos better than Sultan Knish did this week: When Bush left office at the end of his second term, the region was mostly stable aside from Iran’s nuclear program. By the time Obama had finished his first term, it was in a state of endless war. [snip] Bush had sought to stabilize the Middle East by removing Saddam. Obama instead destabilized it by trying to remove every government that was in any way friendly to the

Calling a Spade a ´Garden Implement´
Doesn´t Make it a Hoe
American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 3/16/2014 5:09:00 AM     Post Reply
Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

Why Ukraine? Why Now?

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran. The one place we intervened was Iraq, with

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings. In one instance her team, which had certainly been invited in by Democrats

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
