Hilary Rosen: The worst PR person ever

Is there a war on women? If so who started the war on women? Well according to the now infamous (and 35x visitor to the White House) Hilary Rosen, the Republicans are spreading it around – duh!

This morning on radio Glenn took another look at Rosen’s most recent CNN comments that have caused such a stir across the country, and turned the focus to a portion of her statement that no one is paying attention to.

Before attacking Ann Romney, here is what Rosen said:

“Well, first, can we just get rid of this word, “war on women”? The Obama campaign does not use it, President Obama does not use it — this is something that the Republicans are accusing people of using, but they’re actually the ones spreading it.”

Jonah Goldberg, who Glenn describes as “one of the brightest guys he knows,” wrote an article on National Review that claims Rosen’s statements are not entirely accurate.

For example, a fundraising email from non-other than Nancy Pelosi says this:

“We're close to an incredible milestone in the campaign to stop extremism.  Contribute $3 before midnight. Together, we'll put an end to the Republicans unrelenting war on women, seniors and the middle class.”

“Sure, you can find one example,” Pat joked as Glenn started reading example number two.

"These guys are dangerous. They’ll do anything whether it’s waging a war on women or imploding our economy.’ That’s from James Carville," Glenn said.

Glenn reads another example from Goldberg’s National Review piece – this time from Donna Brazille:

"The right wing will do anything to destroy president Obama including waging war on women."

"Romney is the most radically anti-woman candidate in a generation," Glenn reads. "He supports banning all abortions, backs so called personhood, blah, blah, blah, wants to stop preventative services like cancer screenings for millions of women."

Where did that quote come from? It couldn’t be from anything associated with the White House, because, like Hilary Rosen told us, the ‘war on women’ is being spread by the Republicans. It’s just from the obscure website …BarackObama.com.

“But there is no war on women,” Pat said sarcastically. “It’s fabricated by the Republican Party.”

The logic is really astounding, as Glenn points out.  “The Republicans are scaring the American people by saying that the Democrats are saying there's a war on women that the Republicans are waging, because the Republicans want to stop all cancer treatments and screenings for women.” Got that?

“I don't understand that logic,” Glenn said ..and it’s hard to imagine that anyone else does either.

“You want to talk about conspiracy theory,” Glenn joked, “that's pretty deep.”

Stu pointed out that if anyone can pull off that kind of logic, it’s Hilary Rosen. After all, unlike Ann Romney, she had one of the most difficult jobs in the country – making sure that the healthcare law had a good image. Granted, she failed at that.

“Only 72% of people think it’s unconstitutional,” Stu said. “You’ll remember the wonderful job she did helping PR during the BP oil spill for BP, and BP did really well through that.”

“The Democrats hired the worst PR person ever,” Glenn said.

Of course we don’t know that the Hilary Rosen from the BP spill is the same Hilary Rosen in this situation. “To be fair, they know several Hilary Rosens,” Stu joked.

“I mean, she works for the DNC,” Glenn started, “and the DNC has issued a refrigerator magnet.  But what does it say?” he asked Stu.

“It says …stop the Republican war on women,” Stu answered.

To summarize the wisdom we've gotten from Hilary Rosen the last couple of days: Hilary Rosen says that Republicans are fabricating a war on women. Hilary Rosen does PR for the DNC. The DNC is selling a magnet that says "Stop the Republican War on Women." Hilary Rosen should probably stop telling Ann Romney how unqualified she is to speak on certain topics...

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752

3. Nebraska

Population: 1,972,292

4. West Virginia

Population: 1,764,786

5. Hawaii

Population: 1,433,238

6. New Hampshire

Population: 1,402,957

7. Maine

Population: 1,393,442

8. Montana

Population: 1,139,507

9. Rhode Island

Population: 1,090,483

10. Delaware

Population: 1,031,985

11. South Dakota

Population: 923,484

12. North Dakota

POLL: Should the Government control the future of AI?

Earlier this week, tech titans, lawmakers, and union leaders met on Capitol Hill to discuss the future of AI regulation. The three-hour meeting boasted an impressive roster of tech leaders including, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and others, along with more than 60 US Senators.

The meeting was closed to the public, so what was exactly discussed is unknown. However, what we do know is that a majority of the CEOs support AI regulation, the most vocal of which is Elon Musk. During the meeting, Musk called AI "a double-edged sword" and strongly pushed for regulation in the interest of public safety.

A majority of the CEOs support AI regulation.

Many other related issues were discussed, including the disruption AI has caused to the job market. As Glenn has discussed on his program, the potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real, and many have already felt the effects. From taxi drivers to Hollywood actors and writers, AI's presence can be felt everywhere and lawmakers are unsure how to respond.

The potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real.

Ultimately, the meeting's conclusion was less than decisive, with several Senators making comments to the tune of "we need more time before we act." The White House is expected to release an executive order regarding AI regulation by the end of the year. But now it's YOUR turn to tell us what YOU think needs to be done!

Should A.I. be regulated?

Can the government be trusted with the power to regulate A.I.? 

Can Silicon Valley be trusted to regulate AI? 

Should AI development be slowed for safety, despite its potential advantages?

If a job can be done cheaper and better by AI, should it be taken away from a human?

Do you feel that your job is threatened by AI?
