Trump showed how to speak truth on immigration; Now which GOP candidate will do the same on race?

In his August 17 monologue, Rush Limbaugh discussed Trump's spot-on immigration plan extensively, a plan that incorporates all three of the main points I summarized in my August 5 article, “Hard Truth for the GOP from its Base.” I can’t and don’t claim Trump got his plan from me -- any marginally thoughtful political observer not paralyzed by total dependence on corporate money can see America’s desperate need to halt illegal immigration and cauterize the risk of its recurrence. Not only did Rush praise the Trump plan, but -- at least as important -- pointed out, citing serious polling evidence, that Trump’s immigration proposal resonates loud and clear with the overwhelming majority of the US electorate (not just with Republicans and conservatives), and that any major Republican candidate who had timely addressed immigration as Trump has would be leading the field now by a wide margin.

Check out Rush’s monologue. It should be mandatory reading for anyone interested in the future well being of America. And forgive my pointing out that the same message can be found in my now two week old article.

The next major issue/opportunity that the mainstream Republican field is preparing to fumble through pusillanimous silence and lack of vision is the "black lives matter" fraud.


Expect the Democrat perpetrators of the Left’s latest despicable falsehood -- that America and its police are racist -- to soon start interrupting Republican candidates, as they already have Bernie Sanders. And to demand that the Republicans grovel and apologize too, as Sanders has. Recalling the debate, Scott Walker, ill-advised and politically tone deaf, has already shown how not to handle this issue: Asked what he would say to those who claim blacks are victims of racist police, Walker mumbled something PC about the need for thorough training and imposing consequences on bad cops. Thus, giving credence to the lie. I doubt that the cops of America and their families thank Walker for those remarks.


What Walker should have said, and what any Republican interested in winning the presidency should say to the thugs themselves, or to anyone who brings up their libels, is something like this:

"I've got news for you buddy/Ma’am: This is the least racist nation in history and so are its police. America is the best place on the planet to be a black person or to be any minority. The overwhelming majority of Americans, and their police, have been struggling for decades to treat everyone fairly and justly. To call this nation, its people or its police racists is a damned lie."

These sentences, if any Republican had the vision and courage to utter them, would be remembered to great good consequence. The vast majority of Americans feel in their gut they are not only true, but the heart of the matter. About 80% of the electorate would breathe a collective sigh of relief to hear someone at last stand up for the truth.
Once that core message had been delivered, the candidate could add whatever he/she wants about how the problem facing American blacks is not racism, which is a politically motivated lie, but that the problem includes the destruction of the black family, children growing up without fathers, and low wages and no jobs for black youth, at least in part because of out-of-control illegal immigration, all deliberately engineered by the Democratic Party to create dependency and buy black votes.

Rush: Trump Tells Establishment to 'Go to Hell'


Image: Rush: Trump Tells Establishment to 'Go to Hell'(REUTERS/Jim Young)

Donald Trump is defying "conventional belief" by doubling down and refusing to apologize to Sen. John McCain for comments made over the weekend that at first questioned the senator's reputation as a war hero before saying that he is one, talk show host Rush Limbaugh said Monday.

"The American people haven't seen something like this in a long time," Limbaugh said on his radio program. "They have not seen an embattled public figure stand up, double down, and tell everyone to go to hell."

Limbaugh insisted that he is not a Trump apologist, but said the media and politicians are following a typical trail they use when they want to get rid of a public figure, and the talk show host said a similar pattern is often followed on his own controversial statements.

"Under conventional belief, a public figure makes a politically incorrect statement that offends somebody," said Limbaugh. "The Washington establishment and media react in outrage, and the media replays the offensive comment over and over and over."

Eventually, the establishment "gets together with the media" and all demand the public figure apologize, beg forgiveness, and withdraw from public life and "stay in chagrined irrelevance," said Limbaugh.

"This charade plays whenever this circumstance happens," said Limbaugh, and there is one fatal mistake made, when it is assumed that "the collective outrage of the Washington establishment and the media is reflective of the American people."

He noted that journalist Sharyl Attkisson wrote a "great analysis" of the Saturday incident. 

"It is a fact that Trump did not say what he is being reputed to say," said Limbaugh, that "McCain's not a hero, and so forth. Four different times, he said McCain is a war hero."

"Facts don't matter in a circumstance like this," Limbaugh said, but instead, statements are "purposely blurred, lied about or ignored, much like my ill fated commentary on ESPN. Take something that wasn't said and blow it out of proportion."

He also pointed out that Trump said what he did "following McCain's insult of Trump's supporters, calling them 'crazies.' This ticked Trump off, [because] he doesn't want to think they're a bunch of crazed wackos." 

But nobody is suggesting McCain apologize, but the media and Washington's establishment are all demanding apologies and saying that Trump's campaign can't survive, as is the usual pattern, said Limbaugh.

"Except one thing hasn't happened: Trump hasn't apologized," said Limbaugh. "Not only he hasn't, but he doubled down and added to his original criticism."

And the "architects" of the scandal "don't know what to do...the guilty party is begging for forgiveness but Trump has not," he said.

[VIDEO] Rush Praises ‘Remarkable’ Walker: ‘He’s The One Guy In The Race With A Conservative Track Record’

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh continued to heap praise upon Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker during his Monday broadcast, calling him “the one guy in the race with a conservative track record” ahead of his 2016 announcement.
Limbaugh, a frequent admirer of the latest 2016 entrant, said Walker has been “remarkable” during his tenure in Madison, adding further that Walker defeat the media and Democrats’ attacks on conservatives.
“One of the most qualified Republicans made it official, Scott Walker, the governor of Wisconsin — who, as you know, if you listen regularly to this program — we have touted Walker’s qualifications time and time and time again,” Limbaugh began. “Here is a man who is conservative. You know what he said, by the way, in his speech? Name for me any other candidate…who’s made this point.”
“Scott Walker said one of the first things he’s going to do is build on and shore up the Republican conservative base,” Limbaugh said. “That’s somewhat unique, folks, because most of the Republicans are talking about the need to go beyond the conservative base, and, at the very least, making themselves sound like they’re taking it for granted and the conservative base isn’t the key to their plans.”
“Walker believes that there are a lot of Americans who live their lives as conservatives but they don’t vote that way for the usual reasons,” Limbaugh continued. “He thinks they are what we used to call the Reagan Democrats, and he thinks that he can go get them, because he has met them. As governor of Wisconsin, he’s traveled around, and he’s campaigned.”
Previously, Limbaugh gave Walker high marks in the aftermath of Walker’s speech to the Iowa Freedom Fest, telling his listeners that his approach is “the blueprint” for conservatives if they are “serious about beating the left.” (RELATED: Limbaugh: Scott Walker ‘The Blueprint’ For GOP If They Are ‘Serious About Beating The Left’)
“Scott Walker has a track record,” Limbaugh said. “Scott Walker doesn’t have to tell you what he will do if he’s elected because all he has to do is point to what he has done.”
“He just signed into law another budget in the state of Wisconsin. Wisconsin is a blue state. He just signed a budget which eliminates tenure! He just signed a budget which gets closer to balancing the budget in the state of Wisconsin. He’s done remarkable,” Limbaugh said. “He has implemented a conservative agenda against everything the Democrat Party has to throw at him, and he’s beat them three different times — which we’ve heralded here quite often and talked about it quite often.”
“So he’s the one guy in the race with a conservative track record, the one guy in the race that has shown how to defeat the media and Democrat coordinated attacks on conservatives,” Limbaugh said. “He’s shown how to hang in and be tough, and so he’s the one guy that has something other than promises to make.”

Advice for Arguing with Millennials

RUSH: Max in Scottsdale, Arizona, next up, how are you, sir?
CALLER: Thanks, Rush. It's a pleasure to speak with you. My dad recently gave me a signed copy of your book, "See, I told you so." It belonged to my grandpa. I've been reading it a little bit. It seems like things have gotten a lot worse. You wrote about Ice-T and a song about killing cops and how they're really celebrated. And I'll tell you that today that pop culture, and hip hop in particular, is even worse than it was back then.
And today what it means to be a man and a rugged individual is no longer something that's respected or celebrated. It's ridiculed and we hold up these other guys like Ice-T and the cop killers. It makes me feel kind of alone out here trying to live up to my grandparents and their values. It was cool opening your book and seeing all this stuff and I appreciate it. But I'm a little lost as to where we go today and also wanted to check in on your marketing plan for Millennials and see how that was going.
RUSH: You want to know how my marketing plan for Millennials is going.
CALLER: Yes, sir.
RUSH: Not very well. (laughing) What do you think, how's it going?
CALLER: You kind of keep it close to the vest.
RUSH: That's it. When you have a marketing strategy, my theory and philosophy is you don't announce it, you just implement it. If you admit to people that you're targeting them for anything, either to separate them from their money or to get them to change their mind and agree with you, why tell them that that's your objective, because they just prepare a resistance to you.
So I'm prepared not to give any details of the secret marketing plan to persuade Millennials. And I'm not going to now. I'm not going to now either. It's not going to be easy, and I'll tell you why. And again, I hate to be repetitive. But I'm sure there are people listening today that haven't in a while. I'm sure there's all kinds of people tuning in today, Snerdley, who just want to gloat and they're hoping to hear all kinds of sadness and anger and misery. I'm not going to give them the satisfaction of that. But the Millennials in this country, the vast majority of them, they know things aren't right. Most everybody does.

This isn't the United States of America that most people know or expect, not economically, not in terms of people's good vibes about the future. But the percentage of people in poll after poll think the country is going in the wrong direction and the number keeps expanding. Here's the difference, though: In previous times when people have thought the country was in the wrong direction, or in the right direction, either one, there was always, in the world of politics, people always tied those opinions to a particular political party or a particular president given who was in power.
Meaning, when the economy was in the tank, the president got the blame for it. When the country was on the wrong track, the president and his party got the blame for it. And when parties lost elections, particularly if they lost big in landslides, then it was incumbent upon that party to respect public opinion, go out and openly promise the changes they were going to make to once again appeal to people who voted against them.
That's gone because today's Millennials do not associate any of the current circumstances of the country with the political party in power. Amazingly, everybody's blaming the Republicans for everything, and the Republicans haven't been in power for six years. The Republicans had nothing to do with what happened in Charleston, South Carolina, had nothing to do with any mass shooting. The Republicans had nothing to do with what went on in Baltimore. The Republicans had nothing to do with what went on in Ferguson. The Republicans had nothing to do with the economic policies in the last seven years, and yet Millennials blame them. And a lot of other people blame the Republicans. It's the most amazing thing

Rush Limbaugh: American Flag Will ‘Come Under Assault’ Next

RL
Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh wondered aloud how the Confederate flag somehow became a “Republican problem.” Now that nearly every major conservative has called for the flag’s removal from the statehouse in South Carolina, the radio host thinks the American flag might be next.
“The next flag that will come under assault, and it will not be long, is the American flag,” Limbaugh declared on Tuesday. “If you take a look at the timeline of progressive events, their speed and rapidity with which the left is conducting this assault on all of these American traditions and institutions, if you don’t think the American flag’s in their crosshairs down the road, you had better stop and reconsider.”
By Limbaugh’s logic, the American flag is a “symbol of America.” And because the left, “doesn’t like this country very much and never has,” they will soon demand the removal of a flag that stands for “everything that’s wrong with” America.
“It isn’t gonna be long before the American flag is gonna cause chills, fear, scary thoughts,” Limbaugh said, putting himself in the mind of the America-hating liberal, “it’s gonna make me nervous, the American flag, when I see the American flag, it’s a symbol of hate.”

Sean Hannity plays conservative kingmaker

Presidential candidates launch their bids in different cities -- from Louisville to Lynchburg, Miami to Addison -- but, for many Republicans, the first stop on the campaign trail is the same: "Hannity."
In the last two months, four GOP hopefuls have given Sean Hannity dibs on their first interviews as candidates and been rewarded with hour-long "special events" on his primetime Fox News program. Others have tried to land an interview with the conservative host, campaign sources said, only to be turned down -- either because they had given their first interview to another media outlet, or because they weren't popular enough.
On Thursday, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry will become the fourth Republican to get an hour-long special on Hannity's program. Senators Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio were all given the same hour-long special the night after they formally announced their bids.
For Republicans, Hannity provides instant access to the highly coveted conservative base. His show averaged more than 1.5 million viewers a night in May, according to the network's most recent ratings report. While that's lower than the viewership for "The O'Reilly Factor" or "The Kelly File," the bulk of Hannity's viewers are, like the host, reliably conservative. He also hosts a daily talk radio program that is second only to Rush Limbaugh in terms of listenership.
"Sean Hannity has a loyal following among the viewership of Fox News," Sergio Gor, a spokesperson for Paul, told the On Media blog. "He is one of the most influential voices among republican primary voters, and it doesn't hurt that with every year he's becoming an even greater lover of liberty."
Rick Tyler, a spokesperson for Cruz, said Hannity "has a big target audience and his questions are from a center-right perspective. In other words, he brings up the issues Republican primary voters are interested in."

Think Piece: Tax Democrats

RUSH: Folks, what is more dangerous, smoking or living in Baltimore?  No, no, no.  It's a serious question.  Tobacco is taxed.  Why is it taxed?  Tobacco is taxed for a plethora of reasons.  It's taxed to discourage people from using it, because it is said it can lead to an early death.  It can lead to other problems.  It kills.  We also tax tobacco in order to pay for (and in a couple of cases entirely fund) children's health care programs. 
You're aware of that?  The taxes derived from the sale of tobacco, that revenue is used to pay for children's health care programs.  I've always said that smokers deserve a special thanks, despite all the obstacles they face.  I mean, we don't ban the product. We make it available. You can sell it, you can buy it, but you can't use it very many places in America anymore without running the gauntlet. Yet these people continue to buy the product, they continue to use it, and they pay higher and higher prices, just astronomically high prices.
They continue to buy the product, they pay the price, and the taxes go to children's health care programs.  So if tobacco is taxed to discourage from using it because it can lead to an early death and other problems -- and that's the primary reason it's taxed -- let's face it, the prices are designed to dissuade people from using the product.  That would be the primary purpose that nannies in life and the social do-gooders would give you. 
Using that logic, should we not be taxing Democrats?  Their policies, look at Democrat policies.  They ruin families.  Democrat policies spread ignorance in the schools.  Democrat policies make health care unaffordable.  This results in great stress from unemployment and underemployment, and Democrats have created and maintained dangerous cities with horrible crime and death rates. 
It's arguably more dangerous living in Baltimore than it is to smoke cigarettes.  Look at the death rate.  I'm not joking.  It's a way to make a point, and I think it would be a perfect opportunity to say we need to tax registered Democrats the way we tax tobacco, because Democrats are causing illness. Democrats cause strife. Democrat policies are ruining cities. Democrat policies have ruined families.  Just a little think piece.

Limbaugh: American Left Has Made Christianity Its No. 1 Enemy

Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show on Wednesday that the American Left has made Christianity its "number one enemy." Limbaugh made the observation and explained it after playing an interview of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) by David Brody of CBN. In that interview Rubio suggested that mainstream Christian teaching was under assault from the left.
“You think Rubio's got a point there?" asked Rush. "You better not sweep this one away. You better not think this one was a little over the top. He is right on the money. This is exact. In fact, I would even go further. I think mainstream Christianity is the target, and has been for I can’t tell you how long. And before I was born, it's been, Christianity has been the biggest enemy of the American left, or any left – organized religion in general – but Christianity is the number one enemy of these people.”
“You notice, they’ve made friends with militant Islam,” Rush went on. “The left will not stand for any criticism of Islam, right? You start drawing cartoons of the prophet, they’re the first to jump on your case, right? Democrats and the left, they're out condemning any criticism of Islam."
“They’ve sided up, why?” asks Rush. “Well, Islam has an enemy. In their mind, their enemy is Christianity. So there’s a commonality there. And I don’t care. Folks, maybe this is just another one of those things you’re just not supposed to say, but I’m sorry. It’s undeniable.”
“Okay. Okay. Tell me I’m wrong,” urges Rush, “when I say that the left has formed an accord with Islam. Tell me I’m wrong.”
"Militant Islam says you can't draw pictures of the prophet," says Rush. "Democrat Party, you can't draw pictures of the prophet. You can't criticize Islam. And they go out of their way not to. We can't call them terrorists. You know the drill."
“Christianity it’s open season,” says Rush. “You can say anything. You can do anything. You can mock anything. And Christians are just supposed to take it. And the reason we’re just supposed to take it is we’re the majority. The majority just has to understand, minorities feel offended. They’re going to always be hit on, ripped apart and so forth. You just have to take it. It’s part of being a majority. And that is a relevant factor. I mean, majorities are hated by the people in the minority.”
“The problem for us is,” states Rush, “that the minorities we’re talking about here, most of them are really tiny, and yet they’re winning. They’re bullying their way around. It’s incredible. And Marco Rubio, here, is right on the money.”

Liberal Commercial Talk Radio Disappears in NY, LA, SF in 2014

2014 will mark the beginning of a massive change for liberal talk radio across the country. In New York, WWRL 1600 AM will flip to Spanish-language music and talk, throwing Ed Schultz, Thom Hartmann, Randi Rhodes, and Alan Colmes off the air. In Los Angeles, KTLK 1150 will be dumping Stephanie Miller, Rhodes, Bill Press and David Cruz off the air in favor of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. In San Francisco, KNEW 960 will leave Miller, Hartmann, and Mike Malloy without a radio home in the market.
Thanks to radio consolidation and the secondary status of leftist talk in major markets across the country, the final death knell for liberal talkers could be tolling. Leftist talkers simply don’t have the same radio draw as conservatives; KTLK was ranked #41 in the market in November 2013, with WWRL registering almost no pulse at all. KNEW registered just an 0.4 in the San Francisco market in December 2013, placing it #31 in the market.
The failure of commercial leftist talk means that only government-sponsored NPR remains in many major markets.

Sharpton, Guests Clash Over Nuclear Option: Dems ‘Played Into Republicans’ Hands’

Al Sharpton said Friday night it’s now “par for the course” for conservatives to make tone-deaf remarks about rape, in the wake of comments made by Rush Limbaugh comparing the nuclear option to a circle of people voting on whether to rape women. Sharpton and his guests, Joe Madison and Patricia Murphy, condemned Limbaugh’s comments, but actually disagreed on whether the Democrats were in the right to push the red button in the first place.
Murphy called Limbaugh’s comments “disgusting [and] totally uncalled for,” but then proceeded to disagree with Sharpton and Madison on the nuclear option. She argued the Democrats “played into Republicans’ hands,” saying they should have fought within the rules rather than changing them.
Madison shot back that the Democrats aren’t “dealing with honest brokers,” that the Republicans brought this on themselves after years and years of obstruction and blatant opposition to anything President Obama wanted.
Sharpton also brought up two distinct criticisms of Obama from the right: he’s a ruthless dictator who doesn’t abide by the rule of law, and he’s also a weak-kneed politician with no spine. Well, which is it?

Rush Limbaugh: Obama 'Playing Dictator' With Healthcare

Image: Rush Limbaugh: Obama 'Playing Dictator' With HealthcareRadio talk show host Rush Limbaugh played President Barack Obama's announcement about the troubled healthcare law on his show Thursday, commenting as he went and likening the president to a dictator.

When the president had finished explaining his proposed change to Obamacare, which would allow individuals to keep their plans for another year, Limbaugh told his audience: 

"He's doing two things: He's telling the insurance companies, as a dictator would, what they can and can't do or what they must or must not do, or what they have to and don't have to do. He is suggesting … that if you have your plan now and you like it, you can keep it for one more year so that you don't get any angrier at Democrats than you are now and vote against them next November."

The Palm-Beach, Fla., based commentator continued, "If your plan has been canceled, he has just ordered the insurance company to make it available to you, so that you can go back and get that plan. The problem is that that plan was canceled precisely because it conflicts with his law, with Obamacare."

Limbaugh, whose show is the highest-rated talk-radio program in the country, said the president's move was purely political. 

"Remember, he's doing this not because he cares about you. He's not doing this because he's upset you've lost your plan. He's doing this because he's losing the media, and he's losing his fellow Democrats, and he's losing the proposition."

Limbaugh also replayed a segment from his Oct. 30 show in which he predicted Obama's about-face

"If Obama is gonna go out now and play dictator, let's realize he could play dictator in any direction he wants to go… If he has the power to deny you your grandfathered plan, the one you liked and the one you were told you could keep… then maybe Obama can play dictator and re-grandfather your plan. If he can play dictator and take it away from you, then he can play dictator and fix it, I assume."

"This is such a disaster, folks," he concluded after playing the clip. "The original problem with this remains. This is so un-American, this whole thing, and now what's the 'fix'? The fix is for this guy to play dictator again and now command or compel the insurance companies to run their business the way he wants them to for the next year is that his part won't be hurt in the elections next November. 

"This isn't America, folks," he added.

[VIDEO] Rush Limbaugh: It would be a gross error for Republicans to let Obama delay the individual mandate

Via MFP, didn’t House Republicans demand a delay of the mandate at one point in late September as their price for averting a shutdown? Yes, says Rush, but that was then. Obama refused to defund the law before it started wreaking havoc so now his reward is getting to watch this car crash play out. In fact, that was a core argument among establishment Republicans against “defund.” Why stop a program that the Democrats own if you’re convinced it’ll be a wreck? Allow it to launch and then, when it wrecks, their credibility will wreck with it. Let it burn.
I’ve written about this problem before, as have other righty bloggers, but it’s newly urgent now that Obama’s website czar is hinting that the site won’t be ready by the end of the month. Delay is coming, and like I said at the end of that last link, there are two ways Obama can play it. He can do what he did with the employer mandate and unilaterally declare that the individual mandate won’t be enforced, at least temporarily. That’s probably illegal but that never stopped him before. Or he can call on both parties in Congress to pass something to delay the mandate for awhile, at least until the website is up and running. Marco Rubio introduced a bill two weeks ago that would do exactly that — yet here’s Rush insisting that it would be the height of stupidity to ease the pain caused by ObamaCare by granting Obama a delay. Simple dilemma for the GOP, then: If they agree to a delay, they’re helping to reduce near-term suffering caused by the law. Like Rush says, that’ll make it easier later for Democrats to claim that it’s working okay. If they don’t agree to a delay, they’re contradicting a position they held as recently as six weeks ago and giving Obama an opening to claim that Republicans want people to suffer. They’re so vindictive towards him, he’ll say, that they’d rather see people forced to pay a penalty next year for not having insurance even though the website makes it next to impossible to obtain insurance. Remember, none other than Ted Cruzrejected the “let it burn” strategy in an interview a few weeks ago because, he said, it’d be terrible to stand by while Americans are suffering just to score some political points. That was his rationale for pursuing “defund” — he tried to stop the law before it could do harm. How does he feel about mitigating the harm now that the law’s taken effect?
What the GOP’s going to end up doing, I assume, is granting a delay if Obama asks for one but only if he gives them other concessions. What those might be, I don’t know; they could ask for a sunset clause on the entire law by a certain date if things aren’t working, as Ace suggests, although who knows if Obama would dare risk that. Whatever happens, it’s crucial that they make sure people understand that delaying the mandate has bad consequences. It’s unfortunately necessary because you can’t penalize people for not buying a product that the government’s website won’t let them buy, but it’s only going to increase the risk of adverse selection to the insurance industry. Instead of healthy people signing up en masse and tossing their money at insurers every month starting in April, those insurers will have to wait until May — or June, or July, or who knows when. And meanwhile, untold numbers of sick people will be signing up, month after month. Job one for the GOP is making that clear so that the public understands that Obama’s colossal screw-up is going to do damage even after mitigating action like delay is taken. Meanwhile, if O refuses to grant them any concessions, they should simply vote present on delay, in fine Obama tradition, instead. Let Democrats continue to own this. No “yes” votes from Republicans, even if the politics of this force them to relent on the mandate for now.

LIMBAUGH: WHEN YOU ATTACK SARAH PALIN, TED CRUZ, AND MIKE LEE, YOU ATTACK ME

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

The Americans are Coming! The Americans are Coming!

Velvet curtains are being drawn back on America’s glorious, adventure-steeped history today with the release of Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans.

And with an unthinkable end being planned for America,  the release of Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims could not possibly have come at a better time.

Book protagonists ‘Rush Revere’ and his lovable talking horse, ‘Liberty’ will unleash the fertile imaginations of the only ones who can turn back the tide on a declining America:  its children.

Only a little boy grown tall as a man, raised by a family who believed in America’s noble, one-of-a-kind history could have written Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims; Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans, and that’s what Rush Limbaugh did.

In their nocturnal dreams children whose parents have read them bed time stories about the engaging antics of Rush Revere and the “Rush, rush, rushing to history”  cheerleading Liberty, will be shouting: “The Americans are coming! the Americans are coming!” 

Adults reading Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims to their small fry, will revel in America’s glorious past, and even learn some lessons in history.

One hundred percent accurate, the best thing about Limbaugh’s book is that it gives American children what they haven’t been getting in the classroom for decades: pride in America from its own documented glorious history.

Krauthammer Responds to Limbaugh: ‘I’ve Had No Illusions About Obama’

Appearing by phone on Steve Malzberg‘s NewsMaxTV show Monday afternoon, Charles Krauthammer responded to Rush Limbaugh‘s criticism that the Washington Post columnist was “fooled” into believing President Obama was a “centrist” at the beginning of his first term in office.
On his radio show, Limbaugh ran clips of Krauthammer and fellow columnist George Will telling Fox News that they initially thought Obama painted himself as a compromising centrist. “I intellectually don’t know how you can not figure out Barack Obama,” the radio host said. “A liberal is a liberal. I know Obama, for the low-information crowd, could be whatever you wanted him to be –- a blank canvas — but, for crying out loud, we’re not talking about low-information people here.”
In response, Krauthammer said that certain “talk radio hosts” (read: Limbaugh) had misrepresented what he said in the Fox special. “They ought to listen to what I said,” he told Malzberg. “I said nothing of the sort. I said that when Obama was elected, it was not clear whether he was a centrist Democrat who would throw a bone to the left; or if he was a man of the left who would occasionally throw a bone to the center.”
“What I was trying to explain,” he continued, “is that after three hours of policy discussion [with the president], both myself and my colleagues had no better idea after, which is a way of saying how well he could disguise his beliefs.”
However, Krauthammer said, “it didn’t take long to figure out his political ideology,” during Obama’s “radical” address to a Joint Session of Congress.
“I’ve had no illusions about Barack Obama from the beginning,” the conservative writer added. “The point I was making is that he was trying to disguise his political ideology and how far left he was when he ran in ’08. But he let down the mask as soon as he got elected.”
Asked whether Limbaugh is “wrong” for his thoughts then, Krauthammer said, “I don’t listen to what they have said. I have no idea. I’ve actually been working today.”

Rush Limbaugh’s Guide To Dodging ObamaCare Tax Penalty

Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh says he’s discovered a sure-fire way to skirt Obamacare’s penalties for failing to obtain health coverage next year – but you’d have to give up a fat tax refund.
The fine for failing to obtain insurance under the so-called “individual mandate,” which starts at $95 or one percent of taxable income next year, will automatically be collected by the IRS from tax refunds. But if you make sure you don’t get a refund, the agency won’t be able to collect the penalty, Limbaugh told listeners.
“[I]f you structure your taxes so that you do not get a refund, you do not have to buy insurance and you do not have to pay a fine ‘cause they can’t collect it from you if you don’t have a refund due — and that is just another nail in the coffin of Obamacare imploding on itself,” Limbaugh said on his show Thursday night, according to a transcript.

Problems have plagued the website for individuals to sign up for coverage since it went live on Oct. 1 , a controversy now consuming Obama administration officials.


Experts say Limbaugh is correct on one point: The IRS lacks teeth in enforcing the individual mandate. The Affordable Care Act prohibits it from using liens or levies to collect the penalties, tools the agency regularly employs to collect other unpaid taxes. Nor can it criminally prosecute anyone for failing to pay up.

“One would need to make sure that he/she is not due a refund … [T]he point Limbaugh makes about refund filers, while a bit coarse, is true,” said Robert Kerr, senior director of government relations at the National Association of Enrolled Agents.

But the fines can build up, with interest, so ignoring the penalties could come back to haunt negligent taxpayers, some experts said.

Limbaugh: How Were Journalists the Last People to Figure Out How Bad Obamacare Was?

With the Obamacare rollout becoming a trainwreck of sorts, even the liberal media can’t sugarcoat things, but what Rush Limbaugh wanted to know on Friday was why the journalists ended up being the last people to realize just how big of a disaster the health care law would end up being.
He cited recent reporting being done at CBS that appears to strike a tone of disappointment and shock that the health care law isn’t going as planned. Limbaugh was amazed that journalists ended up being reactive to the disaster of Obamacare instead of being active in warning people what was coming.
Limbaugh argued that government inefficiency and ineptitude is “the standard, day-to-day operation of a government-run entity” and the media should have anticipated it, but instead “they are now the last to figure all of this out.”
He sniped at liberals for being “surprised” at people looking at ways to get around the wall they’ve built up, and said the way Obamacare is angering and upsetting people is “undermining the very foundation of Obamacare, all of which was predictable.”

‘Spam King’ Obama world’s biggest IT failure

‘Spam King’ Obama world’s biggest IT failurePresident Barack Hussein Obama—who virtually lives in-your-face in cyberspace with a tag team sending out “just-$5-more” messages to everyone including the poor—is the world’s biggest IT failure.

Spam King’ Obama is not just responsible for a whopping $634-million and still counting on the failed Healthcare.gov website, which one week after its launch still spits out user logins, his National Security Agency’s $2 billion mega spy center in Utah is going up in pretty colored flames.

Things are so bad on the Internet for Obama that some might think the 30-year old bulls of the tech industry with whom he met soon after his 2008 election, might be sabotaging him.

Thanks to radio talk show king Rush Limbaugh, the whole Internet World, or most of it, now knows that the Healthcare.gov website, at first boastfully estimated to come in at $93.7 million,  soared sky high to $634-million—without signing on a single sucker.

The 404-error warning Healthcare.gov website cannot get to the millions of low-information voters waiting in line to sign onto the Affordable Act (ObamaCare), begging the question: Where’s the astroturfing David Axelrod when you need him?

Limbaugh: Dana Bash Was on Harry Reid’s Side Before He Insulted Her

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh dug into controversial comments made by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) on Wednesday in response to a question from CNN reporter Dana Bash. Reid called Bash “irresponsible” and “reckless” after asking if the Senate would pass a special bill to restore funding to the National Institutes of Health amid a government shutdown. Limbaugh asserted that Bash, who was sympathetic to Reid’s position, was made less so by the senator’s comment.
“The House is presumably going to pass a bill that funds at least the NIH. Given what you’ve said, will you at least pass that?” Bash asked in the question which set Reid off. “And if not, aren’t you playing the same political games that Republicans are?”
“Even in her question, she savaged the Republicans,” Limbaugh said. “The premise is that Republicans were playing political games with the lives of children. How much more biased could you get?”
“She is totally on his side throughout this question, except when she says ‘If you can help one child who has cancer why wouldn’t you do that?’” the host continued.
Limbaugh mocked Bash breaking down in tears after being admonished by Reid for asking the question she did. He added that Reid’s “meanness” and “heartlessness” came naturally to him.
“The media tells everybody that it’s the Republicans who have no heart, it’s the Republicans who hate women – war on women, kids, minorities, you name it – it’s the Republicans who are trying to fund these programs after the Democrats shut this whole process down,” Limbaugh insisted.
He played a clip of Reid telling liberal radio host Bill Press that the trap the GOP had set for him was to fund every aspect of the government separately in order to remove funding from the Affordable Care Act.
“This is a mean, vindictive, partisan little man,” Limbaugh declared.

MSNBC Guest Madison Slams 'Fat Ass' Limbaugh, Mocks 'Lily White' Districts

THIS IS THE BEST 

THEY CAN DO ON 

MSNBC!!!
On Tuesday's Politics Nation on MSNBC, during a discussion of conservative figures comparing ObamaCare to drug addiction, guest Joe Madison attacked Rush Limbaugh as a "fat ass," and raised the talk radio host's past addiction to the painkiller Oxycontin as the liberal talk radio host bristled at the comparison of drug addiction to government-run health care. Madison began his rant:
Let me tell you, they just can't stand the fact that they've got a very smart, intelligent black man that has out-thought them, out-campaigned them, beat them twice without any controversy. The nerve, the absolute nerve to use crack cocaine, something that destroyed individuals, destroyed families, practically destroyed communities, to compare it to something that heals people, that brings families together, that allows them to save money, allows them to be well is absolutely absurd.
He continued:
And fat ass Rush Limbaugh really has some nerve. Here's a man that even talked his maid into stealing drugs from her husband so that he could have a high. So, I mean, let's call it what it is. These people simply have lost their freaking minds. They just can't handle it.
A bit later, he mocked white-majority parts of the country as "lily white" as he lambasted an Arizona Republican for using the phrase "shuck and jive" with regard to President Obama. Madison:
So here you have these folks who primarily live in these lily white congressional districts for the most part, and then they're trying to use black vernacular to try to sound like they're hip and that somehow Obama is just too black to be president of the United States.
