Why Weiner, Spitzer And
Filner Do Not Represent A
Democratic ‘War On Women’

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/27/2013 11:15:33 AM

Anthony Weiner, Eliot Spitzer and Bob Filner may have done horrible things to the women in their lives. But they do not represent a Democratic “war on women.” That charge has been leveled by conservative groups this after new revelations emerged about New York mayoral candidate Weiner’s “sexting” activity and San Diego mayor Filner’s sexual harassment charges. ShePAC sent an email to supporters claiming “Liberal men are leading a violent war on women” and “the real war on women is coming from the left.” And the National Republican Senatorial Committee wrote in a press release, “Democrats invoke the

Comments:
You cannot be serious. This guy is completely delusional. Democrats dream up the phony "war on women" by the Republicans and can´t see the real destruction to women by these sick, perverse Democrats. It is getting so tiresome living in this alternate universe.

Maybe not, but you dems are supporting these people who constitute a mini war on women. As your quasi leader says, "at this point what difference does it make". We ask constantly where are all the curiously silent "moderate" muslims on the issue of terrorism. I would ask where are all the supposed non warring dems on the issue of misogynist perverts like this bunch? By the way, where are NOW and the rest of the NAGS? Or are you all just "following orders"?

What happened to Bill Clinton? Did Wilstein forget about him? Gary Hart? Ted Kennedy? Chris Dodd? Waitress Sandwiches? Wilbur Mills? Oh their behavior is acceptable in the Democratic party? Good grief is there any party that as little respect for women as the Democratic Party? I don´t think so.

As sleazy as these three guys are, none of them make my Democrat War On Woman Mount Rushmore:

1. Ted Kennedy--let one his conquests drown in his submerged car while he got away

2. Bill Clinton--raped a woman and molested an intern

3. John Edwards--had a love child while his wife was dying of cancer

4. Gary Condit--had an affair with an intern who turned up dead

Dims get all the credit for a war on women. They r all guilty of it. Then, they kill the evidence of it by aborting the evidence-- the innocent babies. They call the babies a fetus and think that makes it OK. They all r despicable creeps. Hell is not hot enough for them.

I´m so sick of these perverts going into therapy for a couple weeks, come out. They are so sorry, I´m cured, will never happen again, forgive me, then be sure and vote for me. They are NOT sorry, they are NOT cured (don´t want to be), it WILL happen again. The nutty dems WILL vote for them and on and on and on. How refreshing it would be to hear someone say what they think and not apologize for it.

The "War on Women" is a cultural clarion call having to do with "free" contraceptives and abortion on demand. Nothing else. Given that, the hypocrisy of leftist politicians is of no account.

And unfortunately this vile pitch seems to work in a morally deteriorating society.

Democrats easily out-creep Republicans. Every Democrat President from FDR through Clinton was a womanizer. If Obama is a womanizer it will never be reported. If he is not, then he stands as an anomaly, not an example. Obama´s White House women are paid less than the men, and he´s chosen a woman to take the hits for his biggest mistakes: Benghazi, Obamacare, Spymore, and IRS.

Wow. I can offer the the reason that IT IS, in one word:

Demessopee.

(Democrats´ S.O.P.) Even four words would have worked.

Their standard for human behavior is so low, they have no expectations of each other. Primal is as primal does. And they think they enlightened.... LOL! They live, breathe, sleep, operate 24/7 on their baser insincts, much like pre-human beings. They feeeeeel, they do it. Even my dogs are trained better when to do certain bodily functions, and where. And when not, and where not.

Why can´t Democrats aspire to a higher level of behavior?

(That was a purely rhetorical question, except here´s my offer on that: They don´t believe in God, ergo they don´t believe they have to behave in order to please Him. The don´t believe in Heaven, only heaven on earth. They worship inanimate objects - with one exception: their own body parts. And they believe they can do with their body parts whatever they want, whenever it suits them, with no consequences.)

So much for my one-word explanation......

So, Matt Wilstein is saying that men supporting public policies to pay women for birth control in case they choose to use it, and not only allowing women to kill their babies, but funding those killings through an organization such as Planned Parenthood exempts them from public criticism for treating women any way they want in their personal lives.

That´s the same as saying Dems think women are no better than prostitutes. They just negotiate a public policy deal that allows them unrestricted and uncriticized personal behavior toward women as long as they continue to pay the public price demanded by the women.

It is Democrats who endorse, embrace and ecourage abortion.

All abortions are performed on women, and

at least half of all aborted babies are female.

THAT is the real War on Women.

In the late summer of 2013, a series of videos began to surface on the internet which showed the bloody Syrian civil war had taken a turn toward the unspeakable. The videos revealed images of young men foaming at the mouth; the bodies of children, contorted and discolored; the floors of makeshift hospitals covered with bodies of civilians that died of an apparent chemical weapons attack. In the days that followed, American officials and independent observers confirmed that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had committed a flagrant violation of international norms and used Sarin gas against civilian targets.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

   

 



 
John Boehner´s double-speak

When it comes to immigration, many Republican members of the House have long distrusted their leader, Speaker John Boehner. Now, things have gotten even worse. Boehner has assured members who oppose comprehensive immigration reform that nothing will be done on the issue until the Obama administration "can be trusted to enforce our laws." Given the average GOP Congressman´s view of Barack Obama, that means "never." That´s certainly how many members interpreted the speaker´s words. Sign Up for the Byron York newsletter!

California is proposing to ban members of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) from serving as judges because the Boy Scouts do not allow gay troop leaders, The Daily Caller has learned. In a move with major legal implications, The California Supreme Court Advisory Committee on The Code of Judicial Ethics has proposed to classify the Boy Scouts as practicing “invidious discrimination” against gays, which would end the group’s exemption to anti-discriminatory ethics rules and would prohibit judges from being affiliated with the group. “The Committee’s invitation ignores the fact that the change also encompasses other youth organizations whose

Former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson has been very vocal about how CBS pushed back on reports she did critical of the Obama administration. On CNN’s Reliable Sources Sunday, Attkisson went after both her former network and Media Matters; the former for muzzling stories and the latter for targeting her. Attkisson has repeatedly argued that while CBS didn’t really get in her way when it came to covering issues critical of George W.

Members of the intelligence community are now forbidden from unapproved contact with reporters, according to a memo issued last month by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. The March directive, obtained by the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) Project on Government Secrecy, says members of the intelligence community “must obtain authorization for contacts with the media” regarding intelligence matters. While the directive refers to intelligence matters, it makes no distinction between classified or unclassified information. The memo forbids unauthorized “contact with the media about intelligence-related information, including intelligence sources, methods, activities, and judgments (hereafter, ‘covered matters’).”

The Obama administration unfroze Iranian assets totaling $550 million on April 10 and another $450 million on April 15. The United States has now released $2.55 billion to Iran since February, when the scheduled cash infusions first began. The cash releases were contingent upon Iran halting some aspects of its nuclear program and scaling back its stockpiles of highly enriched uranium, the key component in a nuclear weapon. In return, Iran

Chicago public schools are set to introduce a new Afro-centric curriculum, according to a closely-guarded copy obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. The curriculum covers kindergarten through tenth grade and is designed to align with Common Core. It includes a web link to TheAfrican.com, a website whose publisher decries “fake-Jews” and calls the United States a “Zionist-occupied enemy territory.” The site also claims that the world will end sometime this year and that President Barack Obama is “merely another trick of [the beast of the 4th Kingdom].” The new Chicago curriculum was announced last December.

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.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.

There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.
