Rush Limbaugh is a consummate professional. His momentary lapse into the shadow-land which is the domain of the leftists and their symbiont media, where no standard is so low that it cannot be surpassed by something cruder, lower or slimier, was totally out of character. Not because of what Rush said, which in the pantheon of the left’s garbage grindings is indeed mild by any comparison… but we Conservatives are used to holding ourselves to a higher standard.
Rush doesn’t need me to defend him. His millions and millions of fans already have. The only surprise is that such things don’t happen to broadcasters more often. I did some broadcasting early in my post Marine Corps years to a live audience… and you can get into some surprising situations. There was always the possibility of an intemperate response to the listener who, for whatever reason, feels the need to bait the person behind the microphone. I’m not condoning it, but it happens. As usual, the line is drawn rigidly for Conservatives and loosely, or not at all, for our counterparts on the left. read more »
I wouldn’t want to be in Barack Hussein Obama’s shoes. So many lies to keep track of and far too many ‘little’ people willing to point them out. The Lame Stream Press has done an incredible job of contorting themselves into knots while running cover for the regime. It isn’t flying… at least, the regime’s aerodynamic qualities at this point are more akin to a balloon filled with lead… or gasoline.
Speaking of volatility, have you noticed the upsurge in ‘citizen journalists’ who have been taking the case for freedom and constitutional governance directly into the faces of some of the most rabid of the left wing Kool-Aid crowd? It’s a growing phenomenon which I, for one, am delighted to see. I don’t know who determined that journalists had to have some sort of ‘credentials’ to make them legitimate. The supposed ‘credentialed’ writers, pundits and talking (read ‘yammering’) heads, have failed miserably to make their case for MaoBama and his statist Utopian pipe dreams (and rumor has it that there’s plenty of that going on in Obama’s White House, as well). read more »
Some are calling Barack Hussein Obama’s declared war on American energy his greatest liability. I agree. He has, in fact, a plethora of liabilities… few of which have been exploited by the very people who would depose our nascent imperial Presidenté.
That’s a story soon to be played out in the last days of the Republican primary race. I’m appalled at the timidity displayed by the Republican Party in general. Time and time again, the supposed gurus of the establishment have been wrong. “Oh!” they bleat, “don’t attack Barack Hussein, that will surely turn blacks and illegal aliens against us… women will flock to Obama’s banner in a reflexive spasm of misplaced identity politics”. Nonsense. Nothing can be farther from reality. Obama is badly damaged goods. The American people have been watching with an intensity that makes MaoBama’s leftists extremely nervous. read more »
His meteoric rise to prominence in the conservative movement came just at the right time for his work to have a maximum effect on the American Patriot movement… and change it forever. I didn’t know Andrew. I’d always hoped to. He and Drudge are two of my mainstay aids in following daily news trends. If you’re an op-ed writer, you cannot have too many sources.
Andrew Breitbart was brilliant and fearless. He was also deeply feared and respected by not only the ObaMaoists, but by the Republican establishment we have all come to detest. Andrew went where many, who considered themselves to be conservative, hesitated. He took his issues directly to the murky world of leftist political correctness and defied them to challenge him. Most of those who tried usually came away lightly grilled… on both sides. An entire menagerie of Lame Stream Media morons took devastating shots at him, from the safety of the sidelines, and their vituperation rolled off him like water from a ducks back. He was never intimidated.
He never let up and he never failed to call the left on their lying prevarication. Others who knew him well write that he was a tireless worker for the causes of conservatism and American freedom. read more »
Everywhere we look we see tangible evidence of the depredations of Barry MaoBama Hussein and his Marxist brethren. Actually, it’s difficult at times to ascertain just exactly whose drummer Obama is stepping lightly to. We can see the tangible results of his masterful foreign policy. Mr. Apology is working overtime to placate a bunch of seventh century tribal savages, while his rules of engagement are ensuring that more of our Marines and soldiers are being killed for no reason other than his ineptitude… or his malice. Take your pick.
He sure looks, speaks and behaves like a man with an agenda. It’s blatantly evident to just about anyone, except the committed Kool-Aid crowd, that it’s not America’s agenda. With everyone’s attention pretty much locked onto the circular firing squads representing the race for the Republican nomination, most of Mr Obama’s very real liabilities are being swept under the rug. read more »
I once watched a couple of confidence men do a shakedown using walnut shells. They were slick… and evilly dishonest. Even at my young age (ninth grade) I was able to recognize the scam. Some of my friends were all about jumping in and betting on a ‘sure thing’… and they got fleeced right along with the con-men’s original ‘marks’.
It was a valuable lesson I was never to forget. My natural skepticism was reinforced by the earthy realism of my grandparents, who were grounded in experience garnered during two world wars with a worldwide depression thrown in for garnish. The message was always the same. If it sounds too good to be true, it is. So, like the con-men in my youth, the ‘Mark’ has to convince himself that the confidence game is reality.
It’s unfortunate that there’s something in the human psyche that leads some of us to seek an ‘easier, softer way’. These individuals are seen as the legitimate prey of those who would take advantage of ill-informed or uneducated people for the acquisition of personal power and wealth. Often, the victims of these crimes have to have a willingness to dismiss the evidence of their own senses. read more »
As our friend Matt Drudge would say… developing. Sorry, Matt, I don’t have that kind of patience. Somewhere between 60 and 76 per cent of Americans identify themselves as ‘Christian’. There’s another 2.1 per cent of the population that are Jewish. Together, we comprise the largest Judeo-Christian nation in the world. We also represent the largest voting demographic in the nation. You wouldn’t know it by the way we act sometimes, but it’s a fact nonetheless.
Obama has stirred up a veritable fire-ants’ nest of opposition from the country’s Christians, Jews, and not a few Hindus and Muslims as well, according to reports. It’s good to see these disparate churches standing up and speaking out. At long last, some in the religious community are beginning to see what we’ve been warning them about… An assault on the first amendment for one is an assault on all.
One of the most obvious and telling effects among the religious community is the reaction of ‘socially conscious’ so-called progressive Catholics. These Catholics voted in large numbers for the ‘Anointed One’ in 2008. Conservative groups polling these folks find them splitting away from Obama as the Maoist’s threat to the mother church has been revealed. read more »
Why is that Republicans and far, far too many people who lay a claim to conservatism just can’t see that Mr Milquetoast Romney is just another in a long line of failures engineered by the establishment Repubics. While Romney is holding forth with vapid generalities, which incidentally seem to have been the hallmark of his political career, Obama is honing his carving knife getting ready to fillet Mr Milquetoast over his Romneycare which is, as has been faithfully reported, the template for MaoBama’s slave-state.
Then there’s the entire shopping list of Mitt Romney’s left-of-center propensities. Everyone seems to have given Romney a pass on his totally liberal stand on most issues. This is a graphic illustration of the ‘blinders’ that seem to be standard issue for the Repubics of the Rockefeller, Ford, Dole, Bush, Rove wing of the Republican Party. While we’re at it, let us not forget that awe-inspiring failure John McCain, another entitlement pick of the Beltway entrenched establishment. read more »
If I were psychic I couldn’t have made a better call. I make no metaphysical claims… quite the contrary. Ever since the 2010 elections, the Republicrats and the Lame Stream lap dogs of the Obama regime have been at great pains to convince us, convince you, that we were an aberration, a momentary phenomenon, a freak of nature. We would soon be absorbed into the Republican establishment, which would once again rule all of us rubes with wisdom… nay, true sagacity.
We talked at great length about Mitt Romney and the central and overriding fact that he is a big government Republican in the establishment mold. Worse yet, he’s moderate to liberal on most issues that really matter to fully 60% of the citizens of this country that consider themselves to be conservative.
That’s the one thing that Mitt Romney is not. No matter what the repeated battery from his PACs… those unaccountable political garbage grinders behind which Mr. Milquetoast can hide, while devastating anyone who is perceived as a threat to his vanilla Republicrat candidacy. Ask Herman Cain. read more »
A ‘back blast’ is the blast cone behind certain weapons that utilize the back blast to minimize recoil. ‘Walking into your own back blast’ is a term for just plain stupidity. When I was in the Marine Corps, walking behind a 106 recoilless rifle would get you dead if you were close, or just knock you on your ass and maybe blow out your eardrums from about 15 to 30 feet away. Not a smart move.
ABC and, by association, all of the DNC/Administration surrogates of the Lame Stream press may have stepped in it with the brazenly timed, extremely shallow interview with Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife of some eighteen years, Marianne. Naturally, as with all of these DeMarxist straw horses, they posit all of these things as fact when, in fact, almost all of these Marxist publicity stunts turn out to have back stories they aren’t anxious to have see the light of day. read more »
