Governor Walker´s Wisconsin Earthquake of
Conservatism Goes Ignored by Media, GOP

RUSH: I need to illustrate a point. Yesterday there was really profound, great news out of the state of Wisconsin. In my mind, earth-shattering news. In my mind, it´s the kind of news that should have caused a political earthquake, and probably did. It´s just that nobody reacted to it. Here you have one of the bluest of blue states. You have a Republican governor, a conservative Reaganesque governor who was targeted twice for removal. They did everything they could to gin up hate, anger, tried to destroy his reputation, his career, and his life. He hung in there. The state

RUSH: I got an e-mail during the break, and our first call somewhat related to this. But I got an e-mail. "Rush, are you against the government building roads? How else do you think it´s going to happen?" There are certain things to me that are self-evident that are common sense that maybe they´re not to others. So let me spell it out. I´m not against the government building roads. That is a legitimate government function. But I am very much against the government claiming that their building the road is the reason somebody on the road is successful. I´m deeply

Great to be speaking with you, Mr. Limbaugh. I just wanted to point out something you mentioned about everybody now is talking about the Tea Partiers and how they got started because of the president and the actions he was taking. And I don´t think everyone knows because there are so many low-information voters out there that just think they´re a bunch of stupid racists

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, you know, Open Line Friday, sometimes it´s like Monday through Thursday in that we stay serious and focused on the issues. And sometimes on Open Line Friday it gets lighthearted and sometimes off the rails. It´s unpredictable. You never know where it´s gonna go.

Bill de Blasio, New York´s new left-wing mayor, this week experienced a demonstration of the hazards of divisive politicking. On Tuesday the city was blanketed with a foot of global warming. A major snowstorm is always a political event, as the effectiveness of the Sanitation Department´s response provides a test of municipal government that affects almost all city residents. The New York Post reported Tuesday evening: "It really is a tale of two cities--this time with the tony Upper East Side getting the shaft!" The Dickens allusion was by way of de Blasio, for whom "tale of two cities" was a

Cuts in the cards for IBM: Insiders

IBM managers are working on their lists and checking them twice, but this is not about Santa Claus. It’s about downsizing. People with access to inside-IBM information have told the Poughkeepsie Journal that managers have to identify candidates by Friday for a future “resource action” to eliminate jobs. Managers in the U.S. Systems and Technology Group were told they needed to do some planning in case a resource action is approved. Employees are not being told at this point. That development is consistent with Tuesday’s revelations by IBM Chief Financial Officer Martin Schroeter that the first quarter would bring the

Supreme Court sides with religious group

Some religious affiliated non-profits will remain temporarily exempt from requirements in the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, to cover birth control and other reproductive health coverage they oppose for religious reasons. That is the result of a Supreme Court decision on Friday that extended an injunction for a Catholic charity run by nuns, the Little Sisters of the Poor. The exemption stands while the case is being considered by the lower courts. It is a clear victory for the religious group and its insurer.

U.S. stocks continued their slide Friday, tumbling sharply as jittery investors reacted to continuing turbulence in emerging markets. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped back below the 16,000 mark, plunging 318 points, or 2%, to 15,879, according to preliminary calculations. The Dow had its second straight day of triple-digit declines and its fourth straight session of losses. The blue-chip index dropped 3.5% for the week. The Standard & Poor´s 500 index tumbled back below the key 1,800 level, as it fell 38 points, or 2.1%, to 1,790. The S&P posted a 2.6% weekly loss. And the tech-laden Nasdaq composite index

´Planet Hillary´: Clinton cover
prompts critiques

The New York Times Magazine for this Sunday depicts former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton as a bizarre-looking planet, inspiring quite a range of reactions. The cover accompanies the story “Planet Hillary” by Amy Chozick, a look at the potential 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner. Clinton, who left her post at the State Department last year, has not confirmed that she will be revving up her second presidential campaign, though that hasn’t stopped supporters from raising funds and preparing for the campaign. The magazine’s design director, Arem Duplessis, said in a blog post that the idea to turn Clinton into a disembodied

Election Day is almost nine months off. But right now Republicans seem almost certain to hold the House of Representatives and are likely to take the Senate. Which raises the inevitable question: How might the GOP seize defeat from the jaws of victory? Two occasions stand out, two obvious obstacles ahead that could lead to disastrous Republican stumbles, two pitfalls on the path to a happy GOP Election Day. Republicans are pretty good at falling into such pits. One is the increase in the debt limit, which Congress will have to deal with in the next month or two. The other

George Tsunis is rich. He raised a lot of money for Barack Obama and other Democrats. Barack Obama has nominated George Tsunis to be the U.S. ambassador to Norway. George Tsunis should have wiki´d Norway before testifying to the Senate. Via Yahoo News´ Olivier Knox: Tsunis became a Democrat in November 2009 — after giving $50,000 to Republican Sen. John McCain´s 2008 campaign. So it´s perhaps fitting that it was the tart-tongued Arizona senator´s questions that elicited his sloppy confirmation hearing performance last week (it starts at about 1:14 here). To recap: Tsunis described Norway as having a president ("apparently under the impression that



Thrill of Obama Home Visits Fades

Patrick Festa says that after President Barack Obama left his Scranton, Pennsylvania, home following a November 2011 visit, things got “a little creepy.” Friends and neighbors flocked to the house to pose for pictures in the dining room chair where Obama sat for lunch before giving a speech urging a payroll tax-cut extension. Festa and his wife, Donna, kept the president’s used teacup and napkin in the same spot for “too long.” Today, the thrill of that presidential visit has faded amid the financial strains that Festa, 51, a third-grade teacher, says have intensified over the last two years.

As President Obama prepares for his State of the Union speech Tuesday night, he has solicited members of his Cabinet for ideas of executive actions he could take without Congressional approval that would further his goal of tackling income inequality. In the first weeks of January, Obama has repeatedly said he he has a “pen and his phone” and will use them to bypass Congressional gridlock and help his agenda. While White House spokesman Jay Carney said he didn´t want to preview the president´s speech, he said no one should be surprised that he´s going to “reemphasize his capacity” as

As the battle between the grassroots and the establishment sides of the Republican Party rages on, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is taking a very public stance on the side of the establishment. “I’m going to embrace being a Chamber of Commerce Republican,” Graham said in an interview with The Greenville News in Greenville, SC this week. The Chamber of Commerce represents the biggest group fighting on behalf of the GOP establishment in its ongoing battle with the Tea Party movement, becoming deeply involved in Republican primary elections and pushing comprehensive immigration reform on Capitol Hill. “There’s a fight in our party about the

A national newspaper chain with nearly 100 publications and 1.6 million readers is considering building “state-by-state databases” on concealed weapons permit holders, according to an internal e-mail. The plan, laid out in an email from a top editor at North Carolina-based Civitas Media, could be similar to a controversial project a New York state newspaper carried out in 2012 which included an online map that identified gun owners in two counties by name and address. Civitas´ database project was detailed the plan in a Jan. 19 e-mail to newsrooms in 11 states, including Ohio, Illinois and Pennsylvania. The newest project

The release of Justin Bieber’s mugshot once again reminds us just how fascinating these little pieces of celebrity photography can be. Does the person under arrest have the presence of mind to flash their signature smile, as Bieber evidently did, or are they so far off the deep end that they lose all sense of vanity and simply succumb to their new reality? To examine this phenomenon, below is a look back at some of the most remarkable mugshots from prominent media figures over the last several decades, for too many of whom were arrested in Florida.

Medical marijuana ballot called

TAMPA ­­— Some Florida Republicans fear, and some Democrats hope, that a November referendum on legalizing medical marijuana in Florida will drive young and liberal voters to the polls, helping Democratic candidates including gubernatorial challenger Charlie Crist. The initiative, still not certified for the November ballot, is generating charges of political motives from both sides. Some Republicans call it an expensive ploy by Crist´s backers to help him win. “It is no coincidence that Charlie Crist´s law partner and biggest supporter, John Morgan, is financing medical marijuana,” said Gainesville-based GOP consultant Alex Patton. “It´s a plan.” Some Democrats, meanwhile, say

CAMDEN, N.J. - Gov. Chris Christie is praising a new pilot program that is offering free hot dinners to students in a half-dozen Camden schools. Christie spoke Thursday at the Dudley Family School to promote the program, which is now serving between 75 and 125 students at each location where it´s operating. He says the concept could be expanded across the city, which ranks the most impoverished in the country. Christie said he´s "always believed that it´s our inherent responsibility to provide every child in the state with a high-quality education" though he has fought lawsuits from a group pushing for more funding

It was Michael Barone who, early in President Obama’s first term, described the Obama administration as “gangster government.” With Obama now re-elected, his administration’s gangsterism has shifted into high gear. Consider the following news stories from just the last 24 hours: * Dinesh D’Souza, who made a popular documentary film critical of Obama, has been indicted on felony charges by a U.S. Attorney in New York for using straw contributors to donate $20,000 to a friend’s Senate campaign in 2012.

It was the mid-1950s. Around nine years old and the eldest of five, I, along with my parents, was extremely excited as we oohed and ahed over our new home -- new appliances and everything. Our family moved from a leaky-roof, pot-belly-wood-stove row house in the ghetto of east Baltimore to a brand new government high-rise. Apartment 6B was our new home in the 11-story building of all black residents. Little did I realize that living in the projects and other life experiences would lead to my becoming a black conservative, a Christian, and a Tea Party activist. In a short time,

A jury sentenced Josh Brent to 10 years’ probation Friday for causing the December 2012 crash that killed his teammate and best friend Jerry Brown Jr. Brent must also serve 180 days in jail and was ordered to pay a $10,000 fine. After reading the sentence, state District Judge Robert Burns scolded Brent for his actions. “You are not the first Dallas Cowboy to kill someone with a vehicle, but I hope you’re the last,” the judge said. (Snip) Brent had a blood alcohol level of 0.18, more than twice the legal limit to drive, and was driving at least 110 mph on an Irving service road when he flipped his white Mercedes.

In an interview that has gotten little notice so far, US Attorney General Eric Holder told MSNBC’s Ari Melber that the federal government should intervene and stop states from enforcing voter ID. Holder tells Melber, “Photo ID efforts are done inappropriately and for improper reasons. I think that ought to be the basis for federal intervention.” Melber asks, “So when some Republicans say that voter ID is for election integrity, and thus is different than the history of racial discrimination we’ve seen in this country, they may be of good faith but you think they’re wrong.” Holder replies, “Yeah, there

The Republican National Committee raised $80.6 million in 2013, over $7 million of that in December alone, according to the committee’s treasurer, Tony Parker. Parker also announced at the RNC’s annual winter meeting on Friday that the committee has more than $9.2 million cash on hand, over $4 million more than it had in the bank at the close of 2012. The committee remains debt-free. Throughout most of last year, the RNC outraised its Democratic counterpart, but from September through November the Democratic National Committee picked up its pace and outraised the RNC.

Jesse Ryan Loskarn, 35, died in an apparent suicide in his parents´ house in Sykesville, Md., the sources said. Loskarn had been released into his parents’ custody in mid-December after being charged with possession and distribution of child pornography. The U.S. Postal Inspection Service arrested Loskarn last month. It said it had evidence that Loskarn had ordered child pornography through the mail and distributed videos on the Internet.
