One thing that has always struck me as a tad ironic is the obsession that so many feminists have with ensuring that there are as few legal restrictions on abortion as possible. Seriously? Have you seen most of these chunky frumps, sporting hair styles that look like they were created in a mental institution’s barber shop, stomping around in their sensible footwear, and stridently bellowing in a charming baritone that they aren’t going to put up with any man trying to tell them what to do? With the possible exception of a bizarre accident involving a loaded turkey baster, what possibility do any of these Napolitanos have of becoming pregnant? Some of them, like Rachel Maddow, who regularly rails against attempts to protect unborn children and, not incidentally, women’s health, are open and “proud” lesbians.
Yet they react violently at any attempt to restrict this “procedure” that is so beautiful and wonderful that many of them won’t even say the word.
You’ve probably heard of the pro-abort group NARAL Pro-Choice America. That’s the fourth name that they’ve tried. After three iterations, in 2003, they realized that they needed to rebrand themselves again and completely excise that icky “a” word from their name. I understand the thinking behind that. In order for people to embrace the idea of abortion, it’s best that they not actually know what they are supporting. Unfortunately, when the euphemisms like “pro-choice,” “women’s health,” and “reproductive rights,” conveniently draped over the reality of this “procedure,” another word designed to allow people to avoid reality, are ripped down, the hideous truth is there for all to see. The recent trial of “Dr.” Kermit Gosnell, with filthy blood-stained sofas where women could wait to exercise their precious “choice,” which might include receiving inappropriate dosages of potent drugs from untrained, clueless staff in an unsanitary examining room before being probed with dirty medical tools, and babies having their spines snapped before their corpses were thrown in a refrigerator, was a window into what those euphemisms try to cover up. And speaking of cover ups, the liberals in dinosaur media did their best to cover up the Gosnell story precisely because it did force people to look at the reality of liberalism’s sacrament, legalized abortion.
Over the last few days, we’ve witnessed the near canonization of grandstanding democrat Texas state senator Wendy Davis, the perky blonde in pink tennis shoes, who also has a tough time saying the “a” word. You won’t find it once in the latest in a series of rousing speeches she made this week. No matter. If you can show me a better example of tremendous courage than a woman who boldly dares to stand up and declare her support for a position embraced by the entire liberal media, Hollywood, academia, and the popular culture, I’d like to see it. Wasn’t it exhilarating to see that mob, screeching and applauding in support of killing babies and temporarily thwarting the will of most citizens of the state of Texas? They too showed great courage and commitment. It’s so moving to see people excited by their desire to protect freedom and human rights. Or excited by the promise of $1300/$2200 a month. From Illinois Review:
Now it has been discovered that a radical left-wing group with ties to the Obama re-election campaigns sought to hire outside agitators for pro-abortion mischief at the Texas Capitol as a new session has begun that will again attempt to pass abortion restrictions aimed at increasing safety for women and protecting late-term babies that can feel pain.
An ad on Craig’s List in Austin by “Grassroots Campaigns” sought to hire abortion activists for “our Pro Choice Campaign in Austin” offered to pay $1300-$2200/month.
The Craig’s List Ad was taken down sometime this morning after news of it began to circulate among pro-life activists on Facebook, but Operation Rescue archived the ad before it’s removal.
So Wendy’s “people’s filibuster,” as inspiring as anything in a Leni Riefenstahl film, was a fraud like everything else associated with this story.
In addition to rent-a-mobs, Texas feminists have decided to haul out the really heavy artillery to fight this threat to their rights, and by that I’m not referring to the women themselves, although I can understand if you found that reference confusing. No, some of Wendy’s supporters are suggesting that until men learn to support “reproductive health” and “respect women,” women stage a sex strike, which brings me back to the beginning of this column. I submit that many of these women have been on an involuntary sex strike for decades, which I think you’ll agree explains a lot.
We should have realized something was up back in August, when Chris Christie gave the keynote address at the GOP’s convention. Do you remember that speech?
If not, here’s a little reminder from a liberal at the Daily Beast, Michael Tomasky:
Well, that was a good speech for Chris Christie, wasn’t it?
That was kind of shocking, actually. Of course he mentioned Mitt Romney. A good whopping five or six times. But it sure took him a while. Rachel Maddow just said this was a 2,600-word speech in which he didn’t mention Romney until 1,800 words in. And as soon as he mentioned Romney, he went back to talking about himself.
Many wondered at the time if Gov. Christie realized that he was coming off as one of those “It’s all about me” types, not unlike Barack Hussein Obama.
I didn’t fault Gov. Christie for sucking up to Obama after the hurricane. He would have agreed to serve as Barack’s body man for a week in exchange for promises of lots of federal money pouring into New Jersey, so I wasn’t surprised that he facilitated last week’s ridiculous Obama dress-up charade, allowing B. Hussein to look “presidential.” Andrew Cuomo didn’t have to play along. He’s a democrat. so he doesn’t have to worry about Obama playing politics with FEMA money, which as a proud graduate of the Cook County Sleaze Academy, he certainly will.
So even if we can excuse last week’s Jersey Shore photo op, how do we to explain Christie’s performance yesterday, falling all over himself to tell the heartwarming story of his tearful reconciliation with Bruce Springsteen, courtesy of the One? For the answer, we need only look back to that convention speech. It’s all about Chris. Something offended his ginormous ego, and he’s out to stick it to somebody, in this case, Mitt Romney.
Perhaps after Obama is beaten like a drum, and driven from the White House, along with his repellant wife, Chris and Moochelle can start a fat farm/rehab center for recovering narcissists.
One of the challenging things about being a knowledgeable observer of current events is the stunning disconnect between reality and the benighted babbling emitted into the atmosphere by people who are supposed to be the smartest, most well-informed around, our Lame Stream Media friends.
The latest example was their public head scratching over Barack Obama’s abysmal performance in last Wednesday night’s debate. As I noted the next morning, they are incapable of accepting the reality that their guy is an unqualified, affirmative-action assisted, thin-skinned empty suit, so they resort to other explanations. They blame the moderator. They blame the altitude. They claim that he, a man who doesn’t even attend national security briefings, was distracted by a national security crisis. They claim that he was trying to appear “presidential” and above the fray. They marvel at the fact that the very next day, he seems to regain his voice, and say all the marvelous comebacks he should have said during the debate. “Why oh why couldn’t he have said those brilliant things last night?” they wail. I’ll say it again. This sort of confusion about things that are beyond obvious is why my work is never done. I’ll speak very slowly, so that even Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow can understand.
Think about it, Chris, Rachel and any one else so demented that he or she is actually supporting the Dear Reader. Why do we call him “the Dear Reader?” Because like most other celebutards, any time he says anything half way intelligent or interesting, someone else has to write it first. On Thursday, his TelePrompTer was back, and therefore, so was that Barry that you know and love so much.
In nearly every public appearance, Barack Obama reads threadbare clichès to audiences of low-information backward children or public employee union members seeking goodies from his stash. His entire campaign consists of slogans, distortions of reality and unchallenged mythology. As we note frequently here, and on The Teri O’Brien Show, he himself is a fictional character. That being the case, his handlers realize that he must be very careful getting into an argument about the facts of his record, particularly with a smart challenger who clearly has a terrific command of those facts. For example, many of Barack Obama’s supporters were stunned that he didn’t bring up the allegedly “devastating” caught-on-tape remark Mitt Romney made about “the 47%” during the debate. That comment is some sort of horrific, smoking gun indictment of Mitt Romney if, and only if, it is distorted, and I’m sure Mitt Romney would not have accepted as a given the inaccurate characterization that Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow and Al Sharpton enjoy so much. If Mr. Romney were given the opportunity to speak about what he really meant, not only would that destroy the mischaracterization that the Obama campaign is hanging its hat on, it would have given Mitt the chance to explore the bigger issue of an opportunity society v. an entitlement society. They don’t want to open that can of worms, or any number of others because the reality is that the truth and the facts about Barack Obama’s record are the last thing they want to talk about.
The mantra-repeating propagandists supporting Obama not only accept his silly, hackneyed slogans without question. They assume that the rest of us do as well, and therefore, they can’t imagine the debacle for their side that would result if those slogans were ever subjected to a fact-based analysis by a smart opponent.
Obama’s handlers also know that if their thin-skinned narcissistic one-trick pony faced that kind of scrutiny, we might all witness a very unwelcome event from their standpoint; specifically, the arrival on the scene of Testy Barry. We have seen him before, and he is prickly, impatient, angry and certainly not “likable.”
Frankly, those lamenting Barack Obama’s passivity and failure to smack Mitt Romney with “Bain” and “the 47%” should be careful what they wish for. It could have been much worse.
On yesterday’s edition of the program, we exposed the truth about the so-called “Obama phone.” The Left erupted in its typical knee-jerk outrage that anyone would dare suggest that a former Alinskyite community organizer would pursue income and wealth redistribution, and rushed to claim that the free cell phone program started during the Reagan administration. One lefty website, ThinkProgress.com, even linked to another left-leaning site, FactCheck.org to prove that “fact.” Unfortunately, the linked story didn’t include any reference to Ronald Reagan. The truth is that this “Lifeline” program was fully implemented by the Telecommunications Act of 1996, signed by Bill Clinton. And nice try, my pinko pals, saying, as one of liberal readers did, that “it’s paid for by cell phone users, not the government.” If the government mandates that cell phone companies give free phones to the beneficiaries of Obama’s stash, and they put the cost on your bill, that’s effectively a tax, and everyone knows it. So, Obama supporters are correct when they say that he didn’t start the program. The mystery is why he isn’t out there saying that, and explaining to that nice lady, who sounds EXACTLY like Flip Wilson’s “Geraldine” character, that Obama didn’t give her a free phone. Please read the pieces linked below for the full story about another example of hypocrisy and dishonesty from the Left.
My advice for Mitt Romney during Wednesday night’s debate: expose Obama for what he is a liar and a thin-skinned narcissist.

Two weeks ago, on this edition of the Teri O’Brien Show ”Barack Obama and Other Enemies Within”, we played you the sound bites of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice telling tales on Sunday shows about the murder of four Americans in Libya. We flashback to that audio to hear her mention “an FBI investigation.” How is that possible when the FBI still isn’t able to get to the crime scene because the neighborhood is too dangerous? Is it really possible that that’s true, or is it that the Obama administration wants the investigation delayed at least 5 weeks and 1 day? And what WAS she talking about?

All of us who thought that Flip Wilson had passed away back in 1998 were shocked to hear a gut bustingly hilarious audio clip flood the airwaves at the end of last week, featuring the return of Geraldine, this time telling us that “Romney sucks,” and waxing eloquent about her “Obama phone.” Then we saw the video and we realized it was not Geraldine, but a lucky recipient of goodies from Obama’s stash. Predictably, once the YouTube video of this woman went viral, our friends on the Left pounced on what they consider another “racist” distortion of the truth from the evil vast right-wing conspiracy. Here’s an example from one of my Facebook friends:
“Crazy, rant of the day debunked: Obama is giving free phones to poor people just like that redistributionist, socialist Ronald Reagan. Horrors! Paid for by cell phone users, not government, by the way.”
This sort of comment is why my work is never done. I think I’ve warned people more than once about trying to get accurate information from Rachel Maddow, but sometimes people don’t get the message. This guy’s defense of the One is like a lot of what is said and written by the Obama campaign; that is, often the words, while technically accurate, are EXTREMELY misleading in context. What’s the truth about these “free” phones? We’ll unpack it on today’s show.
Speaking of the baloney factory that is the Obama campaign, today’s designated mouthpiece David Plouffe almost broke my well-calibrated and highly sensitive BS detector on the Sunday shows, especially when pressed on the disgusting and incessant lies by everyone in the administration about the murder of four Americans in Libya. Not only did Barack Obama repeatedly mislead the American public about what happened, immediately after one of his deceptive statements, he jetted off to Vegas (yeah! Vegas, Baby!) for a fundraiser. As long-time democrat Pat Caddell noted recently, this disgraceful episode should be Barack Obama’s Katrina moment. Why isn’t it?
You know the answer to that last question as well as I do. Our fifth column media is in overdrive trying to help Barack Obama avoid having to defend his indefensible record. It’s going to be up to Mitt Romney to hold his feet to the fire. Many have high hopes for that happening on Wednesday’s debate. I have some advice for Mitt Romney. What say you?
We’ll also welcome Laer Pearce, author of Crazyfornia: Tales from the Tarnished State-How California is Destroying Itself and Why it Matters to America. Is California’s economic disaster a preview of coming attractions for the rest of the country?
