Obama and Fluke (from Reuters)

Obama and Fluke (from Reuters)

The following comes from a Feb. 5 story in the Los Angeles Times.

Democratic attorney and activist Sandra Fluke has decided against running for retiring Rep. Henry A. Waxman’s congressional seat, instead planning a bid for the state Senate.

“I am extremely moved by the outpouring of local and national support I have received since I announced that I was considering running for office. My entire career has been devoted to the public interest, whether representing victims of human trafficking or advocating for working families,” Fluke said late Tuesday night. “I am committed to continuing that fight in Sacramento, working to protect our environment, ensure our access to health care, and create the jobs that are desperately needed. While I strongly considered offering my candidacy for Congress, I feel there is a better way for me to advance the causes that are important to our community.”

Fluke became famous in 2012 after radio host Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut” when the then-law student testified in Congress in favor of mandatory insurance coverage of contraception.

After graduating from law school, she moved to Los Angeles, passed the California bar exam, has been active in Democratic circles and has spent time working on issues related to the foster-care system and a living wage. Rumors have long circulated that she would eventually run for office.

Fluke said she plans to run for the state Senate seat currently held by Ted Lieu, who is running for Waxman’s congressional seat….

Fluke’s decision not to seek the congressional seat immediately alters the contours of that race. In addition to Lieu, the other Democrat in the race for Waxman’s seat is former city controller Wendy Greuel. Political strategists had questioned whether Fluke and Greuel would attract the same set of voters….

  1. “…Fluke became famous in 2012 after radio host Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut” when the then-law student testified in Congress in favor of mandatory insurance coverage of contraception.

    As I recall Rush implied that someone who had such a obviously over-inflated contraceptive bill must be slut. But hey, it’s a brave new world of healthcare and equality.

    It’s not the world that’s a’changin’ but just definitions. Heaven is the new Hell and well, you get the rest!

    God have mercy.

    • “Fluke became famous in 2012 after radio host Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut” when the then-law student testified in Congress in favor of mandatory insurance coverage of contraception.” Not much of a resume but enough to get you into high office if you are a liberal democrat.

    Sorry, that Anonymous post is me. Sorry Sandra Fluke and Rush and whoever else may be offended :)

  3. John Feeney says:

    If memory serves correctly, Sandra Fluke attended the formerly Catholic University, Georgetown.

  4. mike magee says:

    I wonder if the Congressional district where Rush lives is rock solid red? If it were ‘in play’, perhaps it would be poetic justice were Ms. Fluke to move there and become Rush’s Congress member.

  5. Father Karl says:

    The real test, to see how terrible and immoral our society has become, is the outcome of the election. If Sandra Fluke wins the election, then things are really bad, and only God can help us..

    • Life Lady says:

      That first part could be true, but as I recall, there’s an old saying that goes something like “God helps those who help themselves”. This announcement should light a bonfire under the collective feet of every conservative in the state. We ought to rally every pro-life person who complains about the liberals in our State Senate and dC. If we can get 70,000 to march in San Francisco, we ought to be able to get at least half that many to work to defeat this person and replace Waxman with a conservative in DC. I see this as a huge opportunity for conservatives in California to make lemonade from a couple of lemons.

      • Ann Malley says:

        God really does answer prayer. He gives us the leaders we pray for, that is the one’s we as a people really want. So let’s hear it for rallying the troops.

    • retrospective says:

      Hasn’t that “real test” already taken place countless times? No point in listing all the examples, but 54% of self-identified Catholics voted for Obama. (Whose first act in office was the repeal of the Mexico City Policy in order to use taxpayer dollars to fund overseas abortions – in the middle of a recession, no less!) I like the way it was put by St. Edith Stein (Sister Teresa Benedicta of the Cross): “Human activity cannot help us, only the sufferings of Christ.”

      • The test has been taken, indeed. In 2002, in overly conservative Orange County, here were the results of the Congressional elections:
        U.S. House, California District 47 General Election, 2002
        Party Candidate Vote % Votes
        Democratic Loretta Sanchez incumbent 60.6% 42,501
        Republican Jeff Chavez 34.7% 24,346
        Libertarian Paul Marsden 4.2% 2,944
        Write-in Kenneth Valenzuela Fisher 0.5% 382
        Write-in Michael Monge 0% 5
        Total Votes 70,178
        Congress Person Sanchez continues to be the overwhelming choice of this district. A lot of her votes come from San Diego, but it looks like a huge number of conservatives also vote for her. What we represent is not what the country wants. What are we to do about it?

    • Things ARE really bad, and only God can help us. Partake of the sacraments and pray, pray, pray!

    Our society and its leaders are immoral and rotten to the core! No moral training exists, no moral conscience, no adult, mature thinking, and no guilt for horrific sin!! No viable future can possibly exist, for such a society– until they can all be turned back to God!! President Obama, Vice-President Biden, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and Sandra Fluke (to name but a few, many of them “Catholic!”)– are, before Almighty God– a TOTAL NIGHTMARE!! Our poor country is headed for DISASTER!!

  7. Georgetown University advertises itself as Jesuit and “Catholic”.
    The Diocese Bishop is Cardinal Donald Wuerl.

    Code of Canon Law: ” Can. 808 Even if it is in fact Catholic, no university is to bear the title or name of Catholic university without the consent of competent ecclesiastical authority.”

    Cardinal Wuerl also participates in sacrilege by giving Holy Communion to publically known (by their own actions and public votes) heretical and schismatic “Catholic” politicans.

    http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG1104/_INDEX.HTM
    “Can. 915 Those who have been excommunicated or interdicted after the imposition or declaration of the penalty and others obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to holy communion.”
    and
    GENERAL NORM (Can. 1399)
    ” Can. 1399 In addition to the cases established here or in other laws, the external violation of a divine or canonical law can be punished by a just penalty only when the special gravity of the violation demands punishment and there is an urgent need to prevent or repair scandals.”

    Too many US Bishops completely IGNORE the MORTAL SINs of SCANDAL, and Souls are lost.

  8. Michael McDermott says:

    Common Core is already being exposed for the Political Indoctrination Pogrom it was intended as – the teaching / testing strategy uses the Propaganda In / Propaganda Out methods so enjoyed by Komrade Stalin and others to root out Enemies of the State – and when questioned students find out soon that there are Rong Answers, but no Right ones.

  9. Peggy Bartley says:

    As Henninger says in his column in the WSJ today, we are living in a “Scuzz World”.

  10. juergensen says:

    An abortionist-homosexualist replaced by a homosexualist-abortionist. Behold the diversity of the Democratic Party.

  11. Maryanne Leonard says:

    Because our society has allowed itself to become infested with a “sophisticated” approach to evil, i.e., first questioning whether evil exists, winking at evil when it rises to the surface, and finally marginalizing those who persist in “old-fashioned” (traditional) standards of morality, we are destined for either a deeper downfall or for a revival in favor of and heartfelt delight in goodness, which I define as time-tested Christian values.

    If we say or do nothing while others champion the low road and rename it the high road, the fallen will become the leaders of a society destined for degradation in the eyes of both God and history. By default, we will have assisted in the downfall of what once seemed to be the most advanced and blessed group of people in the history of mankind, through what we “have failed to do.”

    We are commissioned to spread the Word of The Lord throughout the nations. It is time to do what is needed, for our own sakes, the sake of our countrymen, our fellow human beings, all those who came before us and fought for the Christian faith, and all those who are going to take over after we are gone. Stand up for the teachings of Jesus Christ in our own land and elsewhere. Forget politically and/or socially correct! Have courage and stand up for decency, stand up for goodness, stand up for all that is right, and stand up for the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church everywhere you go – and hurry, be about His business – the hour is late!

  12. I live in this West LA district. It is the second among all US congressional districts concerning the prevalence of Jewish inhabitants. One funny thing that happens is that our candidates for political declare sexual heartfelt sexual inversion the very after the day they are elected. For example Bill Rosendahl came out Gay the day after he was elected La City Councilor. Shiela Kuehl and Jackie Goldberg came out of the Lesbian closet the very day after the election as State Senators as well. Evidently Sandra Fluke has a prodigious appetite for birth control pills so we presume she is not yet another Lesbian politician. But we may still find ourselves surprised. If Sandra were not Jewish as all elected leaders are by necessity in this district, at least changing sides would help this evil woman win the election.
