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.

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.

Calling a Spade a ´Garden Implement´

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

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.

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.

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

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

This week the big story was the tag end of the old JournoList gang trying to spin gold out of the dross of the Congressional Budget Report. The CBO report projected that by 2021 under ObamaCare more than 2 million full-time workers will find it financially advisable to quit work entirely or switch to part-time jobs in order to get more subsidies for healthcare insurance. To most of us who studied real economics or just paid attention to human nature, subsidizing indolence means you´ll get more of it.

This week to an ever-diminishing audience President Obama outlined a pedestrian plan for the remainder of this year, amidst the usual hornswoggle of invited guests in the gallery and dubious daytime TV style anecdotal stories of their lives. More popular than ever is the wish that we could return to State of the Union messages being delivered on paper to Congress. In the meantime my friend Ignatz, the genius Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield) and even Vladimir Putin offered up some sage observations which underscore the rot at the heart of the administration and his party and the likely consequences of their

Barack Obama´s Constant State

Posted By: DW626- 1/25/2014 7:16:10 AM     Post Reply
Contradicting the faultless, albeit far-fetched image he has of himself, Barack Obama is a man harassed by truth. That´s why, judging from his inability to accept personal responsibility, Barack Obama must be living in a constant state of agitated cognitive dissonance. The late Leon Festinger is the social psychologist who proposed the theory of cognitive dissonance. According to Festinger, until the person suffering with perceptual disharmony can find a way to justify wrong actions and decisions, it´s impossible to achieve a calm mental state, especially when those wrong actions and decisions challenge the way the cognitively dissonant individual sees himself.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

"This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having
