The real war on women: Dirty Words on Clean Skin

BettyJean Downing Kling

Up to now we’ve essentially heard from male authors writing from a male perspective. Dirty Words on Clean Skin, with courage and conviction, recounts the experiences that launched the REAL “War on Women.” Finally, after four years of silence, I am heartened that this woman author is coming forward to expose the truth as we actually endured it. This book is written by one who speaks for millions. Hat’s off to Anita Finlay and thank you for misbehaving! Afterall – Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History~ Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

A shocking exposé about the real war on women…who’s buying, who’s selling and why they get away with it. This eye opening journey chronicles both Hillary Clinton’s sexism-plagued historic run and the rampant denigration of women that rages on today with impunity. Dirty Words on Clean Skin transcends party politics. It is less about the treatment of one woman than the ramifications of denying equal respect to all women. This first person narrative will resonate with many who feel a burning frustration with mainstream media and the state of our political dialogue today. In 2008, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama waged an epic battle for the presidential nomination that captured the imagination and hopes of millions, but the joy of watching a qualified woman vie for the presidency was marred by newsmen and pundits calling Hillary Clinton a hellish housewife, Nurse Ratched, she-devil and bitch. DIRTY WORDS ON CLEAN SKIN examines the tactics that do damage to the credibility of powerful women and the cost to those watching from the ground. Anita Finlay’s shocking political odyssey travels beyond Hillary Clinton’s historic candidacy to investigate the media’s troubling influence over our electoral process and the behavior of a society not as evolved as advertised. Whether the subject is Michelle Obama, Sarah Palin or Elizabeth Warren, no woman is immune. The facts speak for themselves and drive this carefully researched, explosive and conversational exposé. For sixteen years, polls have named Hillary Clinton America’s most admired woman, yet when it counted, the media depicted her as a vile harpy standing in the way of history. Today, articles from The New York Times to the Huffington Post are encouraging her to once again stand for the Presidency, yet any prescription offered to a woman attempting to break the “highest, hardest glass ceiling” will be worthless without an honest discussion of the culprits and their methods. That discussion has yet to take place. Anita Finlay

Dirty Words On Clean Skin: Sexism and Sabotage, a Hillary Supporter’s Rude Awakening

Ms. Finlay’s book resonated with me on so many levels, especially the awakening to the rampant sexism and misogyny in the 2008 campaign. Once those two were out in the open, it was as if a sleeping giant had been awakened. Sadly, sexism and misogyny are still very much in the fore, especially in the political realm. Thank heavens Ms. Finlay chronicled this period in our history lest it be lost. This book is a must-read. The Rev. Amy J. Samonds

Dirty Words On Clean Skin brilliantly uncovers the dark side of our “beloved” patriarchal democratic system. Pro America through strength and conviction, Anita Finlay sheds light on our country’s internal war with feminism and its long hold on our “glass ceiling.” Despite the destructive mass media bias, Anita’s research, effort and awareness has given us a tool to discern the truth about our current political process. Dirty Words On Clean Skin reaches into the heart of America and reveals the upheavals and crisis women face in our current backward thinking political process. Anita’s responsive, investigative action into the injustices of our country’s media bias has awakened us that constructive change is needed and within our grasp. Shelby Heard

Thank you Anita Finlay for writing this book!!!! Our media has underreported (and that’s putting it kindly) the fact that 3.4 million diehard lifelong Democrats left the Democratic Party in 2008 over the disgusting sexism emanating from the “party for women.” It was such a shocking and unbelievable time and it was swept under the rug. Finlay’s book names chapter and verse of this awful saga in real time. Many of us are still as furious as Finlay as to what transpired, and the REAL magic of the Obama campaign was how it broke the bond between so many people and the party that they loved and considered to be “family.” It will be a good read for skeptics who still don’t understand what happened, and it will be a sad but important reminder to those who experienced the events the way Finlay did. Wherever a person stands on the historic election of 2008, this book gives a more complete picture of what occurred. A must read for all historians, history buffs, Obama supporters, and really anyone who follows politics. Well done Anita Finlay!!!! Cynthia Ruccia

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz: Are you ready to party- or are you ready to rumble- this is after-all a war on women?

BettyJean Downing- Kling

Ladies are you ready to fight this war against us? Some of our opponents are other women! Perhaps instead of fighting with them we should talk. 

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is fighting for a job and her political life- but it is up to American’s women us to fight for our own lives- shall we fight for Debbie’s Job and future or our own?

Before you make up your mind- I urge you to read two books by amazing women who were there when the REAL “War against women” began! I was there and so were millions of women who were forced to sit down and shut up. But our time has come. Gigi Gaston along with Bettina Sofia Viviano, who started her own film production company in 1990 after serving as vice president of production for Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment made a documentary called “ We will not be silenced” http://wewillnotbesilenced2008.com/index.htm

Michelle Thomas who said she received death threats as she gathered the 300 signed and notarized petitions required by Democratic National Convention rules to prompt a count of votes for Hillary Clinton on the first ballot, has just released an astonishing statement that I personally witnessed : “Obama thugs history revealed in Michele Thomas Bettina Viviano interview, Obama stole 1996 Alice Palmer election and 2008 DNC primaries caucuses another documentary. http://citizenwells.wordpress.com/2012/04/09/obama-thugs-history-revealed-in-michele-thomas-bettina-viviano-interview-obama-stole-1996-alice-palmer-election-and-2008-dnc-primaries-caucuses/

Thousands of us are blogging and interviewing each other. Weeks ago I asked, What Republican war on Women? https://freemenow.wordpress.com/2012/03/15/what-republican-war-on-women/

 On Monday I interviewed Anita Finlay on her new book Dirty Words On Clean Skin: Sexism and Sabotage, a Hillary Supporter’s Rude Awakening, here it here:
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/freemenow/2012/04/10/the-majority-united

Women are beginning to author books on the War on Women admitting it exists but bringing the evidence to prove it is not a Republican war waged this election cycle, but the pattern of behavior launched against women every election year by both the Democrats and the Republicans in an effort to use women  for their votes.

The following two books,  Admit The Horse – PG Abeles and  Dirty Words On Clean Skin: Sexism and Sabotage, a Hillary Supporter’s Rude Awakening – Anita Finlay speak specifically to the all out assault waged by the Democrats during the primary elections back in 2008 when a woman had the audacity to actually try to run for the highest office in the land. I have written blogs about this woman hating phenomenon and now women are writing books, finally unafraid to speak out.
I reviewed both books thus:

This review is from: Admit The Horse (Paperback)

In 2008, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama waged an epic battle for the presidential nomination, but was it really a fair fight? The media told the mythical version of a dark horse coming from behind to win the race but Paulie Abeles opens our minds to an alternate narrative.
Perhaps those who wander down the yellow brick road may one day have the courage to pull the curtain back questioning who or what power was really behind the so-called magic of 2008 but those of us who worked the front lines know all to well it was plain old smoke and mirrors concealing the fraud and intimidation of the twenty-first century’s “War on Women”.
“Admit the Horse”, to those of us who lived it, is not a work of fiction at all- it is a factual account of the `war on women’ launched during the 2008 primary by the DNC, the left wing media and the pundits who rely on the political machines that run the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Up to now we’ve essentially heard from male authors writing from a male perspective while women have remained intimidated by comments like bitter old hags, *washed up *racist *hostile *hysterical *extreme *angry *crazed *sexist

This year, name calling be damned,  women will not be silenced and in this book Dirty Words on Clean Skin, Anita Finlay,  with courage and conviction has set out to  recount the experiences that launched the REAL ”War on Women”. Those who launched this misogynistic war in 2008 have tried to conceal it for 4 years and now attempt to foist the blame for it on the rival party in time for the 2012 election. But the anger of women who were dealt the first blows are still feeling the sting,  and that fury  has finally reached fever pitch and we will not be silenced or confused by what we encountered first hand on the front lines. 

Millions of us were ridiculed, degraded and humiliated, hundreds of thousands were tormented and threatened by what we saw and heard. To those of us who witnessed the unspeakable deceitfulness, corruption and intimidation that ultimately led to the abrogation of our American Democracy, and for those of us who suffered or were humiliated by blatant sexism and misogyny or were by victims of the race baiting of the 2008 presidential primary season our time has come!

Finally, after four years of unbearable silence and cover-up I am heartened that women authors are audaciously coming forward to expose the truth as we actually endured it. Upwards of 3 million women never gave in, never gave up and never gave out. This book is written by one who speaks for millions who, because we were not believed when we spoke up — were silenced — in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

In an election year, we can be sure of two things:  First, the incumbent and his opponent are going to pander to groups where their poll numbers need shoring up.  Second, we can count on the mainstream media to function as the de facto PR firm for their favored son, further ginning up whatever problem said politician avers we need to solve, coincidentally ensuring his re-election.  In this case, that favored son is President Obama.

The current pandering is aimed squarely at the hearts and minds of women.  First, we had the contraceptive debate designed to whip us into a frenzy and now, suddenly, and as if it had not occurred to anyone else before him, the President deigns to tell us women we are not cookie cutter people and need to be dealt with as individuals.  Will this political pander work?  Of course it will.  If I’d learned anything in 2008, it is that women have an endless capacity to settle for crumbs rather than standing up to claim the cake.  That is the only way we could have witnessed the more qualified female candidate dragged through the mud, only to watch Ms. Magazine offer up a cover photo of Mr. Obama and declare, “This Is What a Feminist Looks Like.”

The real war on women is something entirely different than we are led to believe.  It cannot be contained in sound bites and certainly will not be explained in worthy fashion by someone who advantaged himself at every turn by the sexist rhetoric that was used to take down his worthy primary opponent.  In the name of changing the narrative and reclaiming the debate, my book Dirty Words On Clean Skin asks us all to examine the daily media and political brainwashing that deliberately shames, marginalizes and abuses women.  I am so pleased to launch my website to further this cause…please help it to go viral!

Also on the website is a video that shares more information about the book — and why it advantages all of us to get involved:

Bi-Partisan Agreement at last: Hillary would have been a better President

BettyJean Downing

For what its worth there is bi-partisan agreement nationwide and perhaps worldwide that is that America’s 2008 historic election should have been Hillary’s.

Today former vice president Dick Cheney praised Hillary Clinton as one of the more competent members of President Barack Obama’s administration, saying it would be “interesting to speculate” on how she would perform as president.

Cheney was asked in an interview with Fox News Sunday whether the Democrats would have been better off with Clinton than Obama as their candidate in 2012.

“Well, I certainly wouldn’t want to discourage good primary contest on their side, but I don’t want to be the position of endorsing Hillary Clinton. That might be the kiss of death for her,” Cheney said.

Even within his own party, President Barack Obama is facing mounting doubts about his re-election prospects, with fellow Democrats beginning to ask if Hillary Clinton would have made a better president.

Morris Reid, a Washington consultant and former Clinton official.

“This is the downside of him not being terribly political like Bill Clinton was. Bill Clinton woke up every day relishing this kind of fight, and Hillary is just a tougher person.”

Mr. Reid added some Democrats were feeling “buyer’s remorse” for selecting the president in his epic battle with Mrs. Clinton for the 2008 Democratic nomination. “The notion everyone is talking about is ‘is he Jimmy Carter or will he be a one-term president’,” he said.

Gary Pearce, a Democratic strategist in North Carolina, a swing state Mr. Obama is likely to struggle to retain in 2012, said: “Democrats are worried. He looks weak, he doesn’t say anything that grabs you, and people are looking for some kind of magic.”

On his nightly television show, liberal host Bill Maher dismissed Mr. Obama as a Republican, and asked his panel if Mrs. Clinton would have made a better president.

“Yes,” replied astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, an African American astrophysicist and broadcaster, adding that the Secretary of State would have been “a more effective negotiator in the halls of Congress.”

An article in the New York Times by Drew Westen, a professor of psychology at Emory University and a specialist in political messaging, summarized the dismay at Mr. Obama’s performance and was rapidly circulated online by liberals. “Those of us who were bewitched by his eloquence on the campaign trail chose to ignore some disquieting aspects of his biography: that he had accomplished very little before he ran for president,” he wrote.

Eighteen million of us knew better and yet a good number of us voted for him rather than vote for Sarah as VP. Well, I suspect they will vote for him again rather than for a Republican let alone Michelle Bachmann. Some people never change- never learn and just keep going back for more.

Blah, blah, blah – all this talk about what should have been doesn’t change a damned thing. Is it really worth the chance to say I told you so? Not so much when it is at the cost of our Democracy and watching the fall of our country. I would have rather been wrong!

So let’s not do this again- it is too late for Hillary and it is too late for the Democratic Party to undo the damage they did to our Democracy, to the DNC and to women. Let’s stop with the should have’s! It is what it is – yes, Hillary would have made a better and more competent president, but the DNC wanted to make a different kind of History and so they did. Moreover, history will record it so long as we never ever let anyone forget exactly what happened.

That is all there is left to do now- record it and never let them forget! Let’s move on! It’s time for a third party. neither of these two are worth a  hill of beans. Both ARE HELL BENT OF EXTREEMS  most Americans can live without arguing about or killing each other over. Let the extremist go at it while we mend our country !

Do you still want your medical care in the hands of this Government? REALLY?

BettyJean Downing

If ObamaCare was in effect today, would surgery, dialysis and chemo also be held hostage to this debate?

Without taking sides, as an Independent- non partisan American Citizen alone, I shudder to think what the talking heads in Washington would be terrorizing us with if ObamaCare (The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)  the federal statute that was signed into United States law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010) were already in effect. Playing politics with our veteran’s payments, social security and debt would pale in comparison to the scare tactics these shameless charlatans would be using to win points for their respective parties. These guys are the ones that put us here in the first place without asking us for permission to do so and by sweetening the deal to special interests and now they want to offer us more of the same old politics as usual. How long will they play the same game the same way and expect us to fall for it as if it were anything new?

When social Security was implemented we were told – it was for our own good and they would take our money and put it into a lockbox. That money, wisely invested would be there when we needed it. Did I mention this is a paid insurance policy paid into by “We the People” and now raided by our servants? Now the lockbox has been broken into, the money spent on God knows what to God know who, many who did not totally invest.

We are held hostage to our returns while being told it is an ENTITLEMENT as if that is a nasty word. You are damned right – some of us ARE entitled to a return on our investment. Moreover – some recipients are not. Frankly, I am sick of politicians dipping into my savings to be philanthropic to the not so entitled.

Entitlements as used in this context of claim or right to as in  (Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans benefits) and Armed services salaries is the antithesis of entitled as used in the context of privileged which is the self yearly increased obscene paychecks and pensions our elected servants who  believe they and their families are ENTITLED to for life so long as they serve at least one term.

Remember the Weiner? http://www.smartmoney.com/retirement/planning/why-im-jealous-of-weiner-1308253690928/

Members of Congress are covered under the Federal Employee Retirement System, which features a pension-style plan at minimal cost to employees. They contribute less than 1% of pay, and contributions bear no relation to the benefits. Weiner, 46, has been a Congressman for 12 years and has a recent salary of $174,000 (standard for both the House and Senate). After leaving office he has a couple of choices. He can begin taking discounted pension payments of about $25,000 a year starting at age 56 or wait until age 62 and collect about $35,000 a year.

For the average retirement investor, that’s a benefit comparable to $1.2 million in the bank. With the 10-year Treasury yield at 2.9%, that’s how much it would take to produce a guaranteed income of $35,000 a year.

Sweet deal huh? WU just raped a contributor’s daughter- he is the one who dresses up as a tiger- wonder what he will rake in? But here is Obama, all over the bloody TV and on the radio and finally taking Prime Time TV to ask Americans to flood the telephone lines because if they – the people who had no say in ObamaCare- fail to bail his ass out …

President Obama on Tuesday said he cannot guarantee that retirees will receive their Social Security checks August 3 if Democrats and Republicans in Washington do not reach an agreement on reducing the deficit in the coming weeks.

“I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven’t resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, according to excerpts released by CBS News.

The Obama administration and many economists have warned of economic catastrophe if the United States does not raise the amount it is legally allowed to borrow by August 2. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20078789-503544.html

Our Veterans and servicemen who fought in wars they did not start but in which they never failed to risk their lives are also threatened. I have been saying for 20 some odd years now—or soldiers risk their lives for a pittance of what the thieves in Washington earn for fleecing us- THROW THE BUMS OUT!

“We cannot guarantee – if there were a default – that any specific bill would be paid,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said, seeking to leverage public pressure on negotiators from both sides who are headed back to the White House this afternoon. 

President Obama also raised the specter of short-changing recipients of federal benefits, telling CBS’s Scott Pelly in an interview that “there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it.” 

More than 80 million Americans who receive benefits payments from the government each month could be at risk, the Treasury Department said.  Most of those checks cover Social Security recipients, veterans and civil service retirees. 

Gee, why doesn’t he threaten to cut off the paychecks of 535 servants that have not done the damned job? Why doesn’t he ask the Liberal bleeding heart millionaires and billionaires who agree with him like Bill Maher, and all those Hollywood  stars and the rest of his Chicago mob to donate the tax dollars they all insists he legislate into law as tax hikes. Last I heard – there is no law preventing them from paying more taxes? Why don’t he and Bill Clinton who keep telling us they don’t need the money along with Kerry the Yacht defector kick in at higher tax rates voluntarily?

Let’s see all these Millionaire and Billionaire liberals making over $250,000.00 volunteer to pay at the higher tax rate? Come on put your money where your mouth is – or shut the hell up!

Back to my point, along comes Obama and ObamaCare, again we were told – it was for our own good…. The majority of Americans did not want it or ask for it and yet a single party shoved it down our throats. IMAGINE having your surgery or your dialysis or your chemo held hostage to this debate between the left and the right if ObamaCare were in effect today?  I don’t give a damned what side you care to take – if all goes as planned, ObamaCare will soon be in effect, this debt is still increasing with no solution in sight- the debate and the war between the parties will continue forever. Do you still want your medical care in the hands of the government, our government, this Government? REALLY?

Palin Death Threats: Odium from the Left surmounts the stench of rotting fish

Another Rant By: BettyJean Kling

The opprobrium brought upon America by the hateful behavior of the pigs who write and those who tolerate the following behavior under the guise of first amendment need hang your heads in shame. Each day that goes by makes me ashamed to be associated with the left, what a bunch of Pigs. And the women- well any women who would allow this to go on to one of her sisters should never again wonder why she is considered a second class citizen – it’s because she acts like one! Great work sisters- I am speechless… No I’m not I just remembered that famous quote: First They came for the Jews – Pastor Martin Niemoller—look it up

I am going to steal its cadence!

First they came for Hillary,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Liberal.

Then they came for Sarah,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Conservative.

Then they came for the Independents,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t an Independent.

Then they came for the rest of the women
and there was no one left to speak out for them.

  “Can somebody please shoot Sarah Palin?”
  “I hope Sarah Palin gets cancer and dies in the next two years.”

Obama steps aside, Clinton Takes over

By: Barbara

 How bizarre was that scene… Buh Bye Obama … Hello President Clinton.

 I think the quote of the year should be Bill Clinton saying to Obama, as Obama ran off to a party with Michelle and left Bill to handle a Presidential news conference.  

“Well I don’t want to make her mad, please go” 

I am thinking how different things would be if it was Bill who ran off saying he had a party to attend and didn’t want to make Hillary mad the media would be having a field day talking about Hillary’s balls and Bills lack of.

Or better yet if Hillary or any woman was President and ran off saying she didn’t want to make her husband angry. Uhgggggggggggggg! Could you just hear the calls for RESIGN, INCAPABLE, INCOMPETANT Woman.

 Oh well… but the blog headlines such as As Hillary Said: “It’ll take a Clinton to clean up after a Bush” are very funny, and they are all over the internet and all over every news channel. This is just too good to pass up, I can hardly wait to hear what SNL and every late night comics are going to do with this one! 

“Obama Names Bill Clinton to Presidential Post”

 Or this one:

WASHINGTON DC – Ending weeks of speculation and rumors, President Barack Obama today named Bill Clinton to join his administration as President of the United States, where he will head the federal government’s executive branch.
Great news: Bill Clinton apparently now president again”

I can’t do justice to what you’re about to see.

 

 The spectacle of the president bugging out of his own press conference to go to a Christmas party is weird enough, but having Clinton back at the White House podium fielding questions on the hottest domestic issue of the day shoots past deja vu and lands firmly in “am I hallucinating?” territory.  

“Obama installs Clinton alone at the podium, leaves him to it; Obama gone, Clinton still there”

 My favorite headline is

“Obama gone…Clinton President” 

If Only.

Hillary: Leave them in their misery

BettyJean Kling

Still waiting for Hillary to step into this ring again? Hasn’t she done enough for her country? I hate to say I told you so – BUT I told you so.

The Democratic party will never ever let Hillary run- if they were ever going to – they would have let her have the seat she won in 2008 instead of hand it to what’s his name like they did. I am not going to belabor that fiasco again you were all there and either you can appreciate the truth or nothing I can say will allow you to think clearly so I am not about to waste good energy on an idiot.

Having said that- I also said don’t hold your breath waiting for her to run in 2012 or 2016 because the Dems will never let this woman – or maybe any woman run. I said it then and I will say it clearly again – if you are a Democrat who thinks that party gives a damn about you – you are a bigger jackass then the Dems are!

I Knew then as I know now that Hillary was the best hope of having a women President of her stature, a stellar candidate and yet – I was devastated that she bent over and took it with a smile instead of shoving it up theirs. Instead she took the SOS job and kept her nose clean and performed perfectly as the asshole near destroyed our country. And the nation began to chant for the woman who had actually won the people’s vote.  Even the Dems themselves began to ask – what did we do?

Chatter about a possible second Clinton run at the presidency ramped up after the Democrats’ serious losses in the mid-term congressional elections, which were widely interpreted as a referendum on Obama’s first two years in office.

Alas-the chatter scared the powers so  the same crooks who took her out in the first place – they who could never  never – just as I said in the first place- they were never going to let her rise— and so theylaid the fram work well and on que they framed her and there comes WikiLeaks to discredit her and take her out before anyone get’s any firm ideas.  Has our dear Hillary learned yet that she should have stuck it to the Bastards in 2008? Maybe her best reply to this is to quit by 1/1/11. That would pay them back in spades- do it Hillary.  Do it! They plan to harm you from here on out anyway- I knew it all along!

Hillary Clinton said Friday she would not run for president and her current job as secretary of state was probably her last public position and she would focus on women’s advocacy work after leaving office.

“If you look at what is still happening to women in many parts of the world it is tragic and terrible,” Clinton said.

“I feel very lucky because of my parents and then my education, the opportunities that I’ve had, so I would like to continue working to improve lives for others.”

Clinton, who Obama brought in as secretary of state after their hard-fought contest for the 2008 Democratic nomination, noted that people were now being given the chance to constantly reinvent themselves — something she has done repeatedly.

“Most of us will live longer than our parents, grandparents, great-grandparents … We will have a chance to do different things in our life,” Clinton said, adding that the one thing she had learned was “it’s not so much what life throws at you, it’s how you respond.”

“I’ve had a life that’s been filled with all kinds of opportunities and my fair share of challenges but I’m a very lucky person,” Clinton said.

Rise Hillary rise- screw them – you were always too good for the likes of these people. Go where you can do the most good and where you will be appreciated. You are loved and admired by many and to those who don’t appreciate you– well let them eat cake!

Hillary soldiered on – no one can say she did not go all the way – she never quit – she never gave up- never gave out- and never let them see her sweat but – they used and abused her and all the while perhaps we thought if she paid her dues — SHE WOULD GET TO BE PRESIDENT?

 I HOPE WE ALL LEARNED THAT YOU CANNOT PLAY THEIR GAME AND WIN. We win when we set the rules and from here on in – we set the rules!

Thank you Hillary for teaching us a lesson some of us will never forget- I am so sorry you paid this price but if some of us learn from it – it will not be in vain. You are the strongest woman I have ever had the please to personally meet, I am humbled to have know the woman- the legend- Hillary Rodam Clinton.

Now go and finish your real work with women and children and teach them well.

Hillary Rodham Clinton’s Birthday 2010

Barbara

In Honor of Madame Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton’s Birthday.

Women’s Rights Are Human Rights by Hillary Clinton Beijing, China: 5 September 1995
Mrs. Mongella, Under Secretary Kittani, distinguished delegates and guests:

I would like to thank the Secretary General of the United Nations for inviting me to be part of the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women. This is truly a celebration – a celebration of the contributions women make in every aspect of life: in the home, on the job, in their communities, as mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, learners, workers, citizens and leaders.It is also a coming together, much the way women come together every day in every country.

We come together in fields and in factories. In village markets and supermarkets. In living rooms and board rooms.
 

Whether it is while playing with our children in the park, or washing clothes in a river, or taking a break at the office water cooler, we come together and talk about our aspirations and concerns. And time and again, our talk turns to our children and our families. However different we may be, there is far more that unites us than divides us. We share a common future. And we are here to find common ground so that we may help bring new dignity and respect to women and girls all over the world – and in so doing, bring new strength and stability to families as well. 

By gathering in Beijing, we are focusing world attention on issues that matter most in the lives of women and their families: access to education, health care, jobs and credit, the chance to enjoy basic legal and human rights and participate fully in the political life of their countries.

There are some who question the reason for this conference.

Let them listen to the voices of women in their homes, neighborhoods, and workplaces.

There are some who wonder whether the lives of women and girls matter to economic and political progress around the globe.
 

Let them look at the women gathered here and at Huairou – the homemakers, nurses, teachers, lawyers, policymakers, and women who run their own businesses.

It is conferences like this that compel governments and people everywhere to listen, look and face the world’s most pressing problems.
 

Wasn’t it after the women’s conference in Nairobi ten years ago that the world focused for the first time on the crisis of domestic violence?

Earlier today, I participated in a World Health Organization forum, where government officials, NGOs, and individual citizens are working on ways to address the health problems of women and girls.

Tomorrow, I will attend a gathering of the United Nations Development Fund for Women. There, the discussion will focus on local – and highly successful – programs that give hard-working women access to credit so they can improve their own lives and the lives of their families.

What we are learning around the world is that if women are healthy and educated, their families will flourish. If women are free from violence, their families will flourish. If women have a chance to work and earn as full and equal partners in society, their families will flourish.
 

And when families flourish, communities and nations will flourish.

That is why every woman, every man, every child, every family, and every nation on our planet has a stake in the discussion that takes place here.

 Over the past 25 years, I have worked persistently on issues relating to women, children and families. Over the past two-and-a-half years, I have had the opportunity to learn more about the challenges facing women in my own country and around the world.

I have met new mothers in Jojakarta, Indonesia, who come together regularly in their village to discuss nutrition, family planning, and baby care.

I have met working parents in Denmark who talk about the comfort they feel in knowing that their children can be cared for in creative, safe, and nurturing after-school centers.
 

I have met women in South Africa who helped lead the struggle to end apartheid and are now helping build a new democracy.

I have met with the leading women of the Western Hemisphere who are working every day to promote literacy and better health care for the children of their countries.

I have met women in India and Bangladesh who are taking out small loans to buy milk cows, rickshaws, thread and other materials to create a livelihood for themselves and their families.
 

I have met doctors and nurses in Belarus and Ukraine who are trying to keep children alive in the aftermath of Chernobyl.

The great challenge of this Conference is to give voice to women everywhere whose experiences go unnoticed, whose words go unheard.
 

Women comprise more than half the world’s population. Women are 70% percent of the world’s poor, and two-thirds of those who are not taught to read and write.

Women are the primary caretakers for most of the world’s children and elderly. Yet much of the work we do is not valued – not by economists, not by historians, not by popular culture, not by government leaders.
 

At this very moment, as we sit here, women around the world are giving birth, raising children, cooking meals, washing clothes, cleaning houses, planting crops, working on assembly lines, running companies, and running countries.

Women also are dying from diseases that should have been prevented or treated; they are watching their children succumb to malnutrition caused by poverty and economic deprivation; they are being denied the right to go to school by their own fathers and brothers; they are being forced into prostitution, and they are being barred from the bank lending office and banned from the ballot box.
 

Those of us who have the opportunity to be here have the responsibility to speak for those who could not.

As an American, I want to speak up for women in my own country – women who are raising children on the minimum wage, women who can’t afford health care or child care, women whose lives are threatened by violence, including violence in their own homes.
 

I want to speak up for mothers who are fighting for good schools, safe neighborhoods, clean air and clean airwaves; for older women, some of them widows, who have raised their families and now find that their skills and life experiences are not valued in the workplace; for women who are working all night as nurses, hotel clerks, and fast food cooks so that they can be at home during the day with their kids; and for women everywhere who simply don’t have time to do everything they are called upon to do each day.

Speaking to you today, I speak for them, just as each of us speaks for women around the world who are denied the chance to go to school, or see a doctor, or own property, or have a say about the direction of their lives, simply because they are women. The truth is that most women around the world work both inside and outside the home, usually by necessity.
 

We need to understand that there is no formula for how women should lead their lives. That is why we must respect the choices that each woman makes for herself and her family. Every woman deserves the chance to realize her God-given potential.

We also must recognize that women will never gain full dignity until their human rights are respected and protected.
 

Our goals for this Conference, to strengthen families and societies by empowering women to take greater control over their own destinies, cannot be fully achieved unless all governments – here and around the world – accept their responsibility to protect and promote internationally recognized human rights.

The international community has long acknowledged – and recently affirmed at Vienna – that both women and men are entitled to a range of protections and personal freedoms, from the right of personal security to the right to determine freely the number and spacing of the children they bear.
 

No one should be forced to remain silent for fear of religious or political persecution, arrest, abuse or torture.

Tragically, women are most often the ones whose human rights are violated.

 Even in the late 20th century, the rape of women continues to be used as an instrument of armed conflict. Women and children make up a large majority of the world’s refugees. When women are excluded from the political process, they become even more vulnerable to abuse.

I believe that, on the eve of a new millennium, it is time to break our silence. It is time for us to say here in Beijing, and the world to hear, that it is no longer acceptable to discuss women’s rights as separate from human rights.
 

These abuses have continued because, for too long, the history of women has been a history of silence. Even today, there are those who are trying to silence our words.

The voices of this conference and of the women at Huairou must be heard loud and clear: It is a violation of human rights when babies are denied food, or drowned, or suffocated, or their spines broken, simply because they are born girls.
 

It is a violation of human rights when women and girls are sold into the slavery of prostitution.

It is a violation of human rights when women are doused with gasoline, set on fire and burned to death because their marriage dowries are deemed too small.

It is a violation of human rights when individual women are raped in their own communities and when thousands of women are subjected to rape as a tactic or prize of war.
 

It is a violation of human rights when a leading cause of death worldwide among women ages 14 to 44 is the violence they are subjected to in their own homes.

It is a violation of human rights when young girls are brutalized by the painful and degrading practice of genital mutilation.

It is a violation of human rights when women are denied the right to plan their own families, and that includes being forced to have abortions or being sterilized against their will.
 

If there is one message that echoes forth from this conference, it is that human rights are women’s rights – and women’s rights are human rights. Let us not forget that among those rights are the right to speak freely – and the right to be heard.

Women must enjoy the right to participate fully in the social and political lives of their countries if we want freedom and democracy to thrive and endure.

It is indefensible that many women in nongovernmental organizations who wished to participate in this conference have not been able to attend – or have been prohibited from fully taking part.

Let me be clear. Freedom means the right of people to assemble, organize, and debate openly. It means respecting the views of those who may disagree with the views of their governments. It means not taking citizens away from their loved ones and jailing them, mistreating them, or denying them their freedom or dignity because of the peaceful expression of their ideas and opinions.

In my country, we recently celebrated the 75th anniversary of women’s suffrage. It took 150 years after the signing of our Declaration of Independence for women to win the right to vote.

It took 72 years of organized struggle on the part of many courageous women and men. It was one of America’s most divisive philosophical wars. But it was also a bloodless war. Suffrage was achieved without a shot being fired.

We have also been reminded, in V-1 Day observances last weekend, of the good that comes when men and women join together to combat the forces of tyranny and build a better world.

We have seen peace prevail in most places for a half century. We have avoided another world war.

But we have not solved older, deeply-rooted problems that continue to diminish the potential of half the world’s population.

Now it is time to act on behalf of women everywhere. If we take bold steps to better the lives of women, we will be taking bold steps to better the lives of children and families too.

Families rely on mothers and wives for emotional support and care; families rely on women for labor in the home; and increasingly, families rely on women for income needed to raise healthy children and care for other relatives.

As long as discrimination and inequities remain so commonplace around the world – as long as girls and women are valued less, fed less, fed last, overworked, underpaid, not schooled and subjected to violence in and out of their homes – the potential of the human family to create a peaceful, prosperous world will not be realized.

Let this Conference be our – and the world’s – call to action.

And let us heed the call so that we can create a world in which every woman is treated with respect and dignity, every boy and girl is loved and cared for equally, and every family has the hope of a strong and stable future.

Thank you very much.
God’s blessings on you, your work and all who will benefit from it.
Hillary Clinton.

Thank you Hillary and Happy Birthday

Sexualizing America 5 of 12

BettyJean Kling

I have been called on the carpet more than once for a comment taken as an assault on women. I would like to try to clear this up today not just with my words but with pictures – you can’t deny. I have said over and over we are raising our children – both our sons and our daughters to believe our females are objects! Specifically sex objects and lower than human sexual toys at that.

Now you may say – I teach my children better than that. I know- so do I but not everyone does and your child may be a victim of someone who doesn’t. I have a daughter who brains were blow out by a guy who had no regard for her or her sister. He bludgeoned one’s head in with a hammer and shot the other in the face with a shotgun.

Statistics show that nearly 5 women a day are killed by men they love and trust. Untold numbers are beaten, 1 in 4 are date raped in school and the women have come to expect this and probably think they deserve it. They are brainwashed by the media to believe it. Males likewise are brainwashed by the media to think it is acceptable. Pornography is no longer six – it is barbarian torture.

Liberal women have given in to the male marketing and sexualization of women in order to diminish them into sexual objects not to be taken seriously and to allow them to be used and abused. My entire Sexualizing America series is based on that thesis. Glamour – as posited is one thing but sexualized, demoralized and dehumanized is another.

Men are rarely seen sexualized to the demeaning degree as are women and those who are — are certainly not taken seriously and allowed positions of power. Look what they did to Levi Johnson. They took his clothes off and turned him into a joke. Pictured here is the self described hottest reporter alive, and we saw how they treated her compared to how they treat other lady reporters who go into the locker rooms. You might now want to admit it ladies but I would say she asked for it compared to the beautiful and appealing Erin Andrews
who
did not advertise herself as hot or stick her wares into the camera!

They called Hillary and Sarah a Cunt and a Bitch but no one called Obama a Prick or a Bastard. He was called good looking, and even sexy but never in a sexually derogatory way. They did not place him on a cover in a bikini like a piece of meat, instead he was portrayed as Superman and described as “This is what a Feminist look like” by Ms. Magazine. Most men are taken seriously, allowed to apply for any post or government position and are not sexualized and degraded yet liberal women seem to feel that it is submissive not to allow their bodies to be exploited. I don’t get that. To truly be equal they ought to be able to get to the top without having to use their bodies – just as men do – that would be equal. Instead women are sold ideas to be equal they must degrade themselves. To be equal ladies do it the same way every other successful person does it !

Let’s think about this! How many men have been in power who have used sexuality to get there? None –that I can think of!

Now how many women have been in power? Substantially fewer! How many used sex to get there? None that I can think of!

Common sense tells me if more men are in power and they do not allow themselves to be sexualized – sexualizing oneself does not lead to power!

Common sense tells me women are objectified and sexualized by the men in power and they are not in power so sexualizing oneself does not lead to power and certainly not to EQUALITY which I have already stated there is no indication leads to power!!!

Bear with me on this – if Men have achieved power without use of sexualization and the few women who have achieved power have not allowed themselves to be sexualized, doesn’t it seem reasonable to deduce women don’t have to reduce themselves to sexual objects to achieve equality to be powerful or to be liberated. We have been brainwashed – No – we are not asking for it if we are beaten and/or raped- I am not by any means blaming the victim. I am blaming us for not raising women’s standard in the eyes of us all . Look at the ads- is this how we want to see females portrayed? Is this what we want in from of our babies eyes from the minute they are born? Have you really noticed these ads yourself? Have you thought about the rise in the defamation of females in music?

Now tell me what is wrong with the way powerful women visually conduct themselves? Did you ever see Hillary, Margaret Thatcher, Angela Merckle, Queen Noor, Michelle Obama, Princess Di, Queen Rania, etc. etc. ever dress like sex objects? How do our Court justices dress? How does any powerful woman dress?

We have been sold one hell of a line of goods – think about it. They sell us this idea then berate us for doing it. What- is the first thing they accuse women of being? We have lost all creditability. Our liberated women will not stand up for our conservative women nor will our conservative women stand up for our libs. We are a divided country. We are fighting like cats and thus we all lose!

Look at the ads, that I will be showing in my series Sexualizing America 1-12. Look what they are doing to our children, look what they are doing to our mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, we are not just sex objects – we are objects of scorn. Look at the ads then look at these powerful women and tell me what is wrong with this picture? Tell me why all women should not get this and unite to fix it?

The ads below show you how we are hurting both boys and girls and how they look at themselves and each other . This is not cute – this is dangerous- if you think it is cute – there is something very wrong and I do not want your influencing America’s children! Those of you who agree with me – had better get with it – NOW! I expect comments and many of them!

Somebody please tell me what the hell this LEGO’s ad is about?

Advertising is a pervasive influence on children and adolescents. Young people view more than 40 000 ads per year on television alone and increasingly are being exposed to advertising on the Internet, in magazines, and in schools. This exposure may contribute significantly to childhood and adolescent obesity, poor nutrition, and cigarette and alcohol use. Media education has been shown to be effective in mitigating some of the negative effects of advertising on children and adolescents.

Several European countries forbid or severely curtail advertising to children; in the United States, on the other hand, selling to children is simply “business as usual.”1 The average young person views more than 3000 ads per day on television (TV), on the Internet, on billboards, and in magazines.2 Increasingly, advertisers are targeting younger and younger children in an effort to establish “brand-name preference” at as early an age as possible.3 This targeting occurs because advertising is a $250 billion/year industry with 900 000 brands to sell,2 and children and adolescents are attractive consumers: teenagers spend $155 billion/year, children younger than 12 years spend another $25 billion, and both groups influence perhaps another $200 billion of their parents’ spending per year.4,5 Increasingly, advertisers are seeking to find new and creative ways of targeting young consumers via the Internet, in schools, and even in bathroom stalls.1

Research has shown that young children—younger than 8 years—are cognitively and psychologically defenseless against advertising.69 They do not understand the notion of intent to sell and frequently accept advertising claims at face value.10 In fact, in the late 1970s, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) held hearings, reviewed the existing research, and came to the conclusion that it was unfair and deceptive to advertise to children younger than 6 years.11 What kept the FTC from banning such ads was that it was thought to be impractical to implement such a ban.11 However, some Western countries have done exactly that: Sweden and Norway forbid all advertising directed at children younger than 12 years, Greece bans toy advertising until after 10 PM, and Denmark and Belgium severely restrict advertising aimed at children.12
