Scott Walker´s Unnoticed Revolution

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, for three days last week I told you the amazing story of Scott Walker, governor Wisconsin and the rebirth and revitalization of his state, a blue state, with conservatism. Conservative economic policy has revitalized that state. The upshot of it is that there´s a near $1 billion budget surplus that he is returning to the taxpayers in the form of income property tax cuts. Interestingly, by the way, the Wisconsin legislature is opposing him on this. They want to spend the money on... what do you think? Education. Oh, yes. We´re not spending enough on education, the

RUSH: Did you watch the Grammys last night? Snerdley, you missed it. Folks, I gotta tell you something. I´m beginning to think -- this a quick Grammy takeaway. I ended up having to watch the Grammy opening a little bit. You know, this weekend I had tech problems in everything except my iPhone and iPad. Well, no, I had one in my iPad. Printers here are all screwed up, printers at home are all screwed up. Every remote control for my audio-video system at home is blown, not working. It´s just a total mess. It´s a total breakdown, total melt.

RUSH: So I get the audio sound bite roster today from Cookie. I actually get an e-mail before I get the roster. She said, "You´re back. They were talking about you all weekend long." And in these sound bites, folks, this is about the president calling me out along with Fox News last week in the New Yorker magazine. They went to a bunch of these media types in the audio sound bites, and they all say he´s justified. They all say the president is seriously agitated with me. This is not just talk; he is really, really agitated. The

If Tom Perkins of San Francisco was trying to be provocative, he succeeded. In a letter to the editor that appeared in Saturday´s Wall Street Journal, Perkins, a founding partner of the Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers venture-capital firm, drew a parallel between Nazi Germany´s "war on its ´one percent,´ namely its Jews," and "the progressive war on the American one percent, namely the ´rich.´ " He described some of the local manifestations of "a rising tide of hatred of the successful" and concluded: "This is a very dangerous drift in our American thinking.

RUSH: To the audio sound bites. As you recall, it was revealed in the New Yorker magazine that the president blames me and Fox News (and apparently now blames me more than Fox News) for his inability to convince a majority of Americans to agree with him policy-wise. Friday night in New York City, on NY1´s Inside City Hall, the host, Errol Louis, interviewed Chuck-U Schumer. And Errol Louis said, "Do you expect Tea Party and other conservative politicians to try and fight with you for those issues of income inequality?"

Political Review Hampers
FOIA Process, Watchdogs Say
Washington Free Beacon, by CJ Ciaramella    Original Article

Government watchdog groups and reporters say political appointees have been given increased sway over Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests in the Obama administration, slowing down the release of public records and introducing political pressure to the process. Numerous federal agencies have adopted policies to review “significant” or “sensitive” FOIA requests. The White House also frequently reviews FOIA requests it claims contain executive branch materials. The Washington Free Beacon has had one FOIA request under White House review for the past three months. The Free Beacon requested emails from Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’ previously secret email address concerning

The big Wall Street types will tell you that, as bad as things have gotten with President Obama and his disastrous economic policies, help could be on the way in the form of President Hillary Clinton in 2016. Keep in mind, this bunch bet heavily back in 2007 and 2008 that then-candidate Barack Obama was “a moderate” (a term used by BlackRock chief Larry Fink to describe Obama in ’08), shoveling lots of money his way. And the same crew in 2012 bet big that Mitt Romney had what it took to expose Obamanomics as the disaster it had become. But the

An Army Delta Force commando who infiltrated Benghazi to rescue U.S. diplomats, spies and security officers during a 2012 terrorist attack “was critical to the success of saving numerous lives,” according to a citation awarding him the military’s second-highest honor. Delta Force’s role was not disclosed in any public report or congressional testimony. The Army citation for the Distinguished Service Cross, posted on a website for Army personnel, provides the first detailed look at what one of the commandos, Master Sgt. David R. Halbruner, accomplished.

´Downton Abbey´ recap:
Bates set to go psycho

Is Bates about to live up to his name and go "psycho"? That’s the question we’re left with at the end of Sunday’s “Downton Abbey,” as the seemingly mild-mannered valet and wrongly convicted criminal, having learned about his wife’s rape, warns Mrs. Hughes that “nothing’s over and done with.” Given the ominous music swelling on the soundtrack, the indication seems to be that, yes, Bates is bent on revenge. On the one hand, it’s hard to blame the guy for wanting a bit of justice. Bates is prompted to action after eavesdropping on Anna and Mrs. Hughes during their 823rd identical conversation

Mitt Romney is going the full Bob Dole. You never go the full Bob Dole.Back in 1996, the media fed a portrayal of GOP presidential hopeful Dole as a dour, humorless opponent to President Bill Clinton. Dole lost. Then, months later, we saw a new Dole in the press. He was funny, self-deprecating and smart, the kind of guy you could grab a beer with and trust. He got a friendly reception at liberal outposts like The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. It was too late then, but Dole probably enjoyed the second media life.Now, Romney is threatening to go down

A woman and three children who claimed to be possessed by demons. A 9-year-old boy walking backward up a wall in the presence of a family case manager and hospital nurse. Gary police Capt. Charles Austin said it was the strangest story he had ever heard. Austin, a 36-year veteran of the Gary Police Department, said he initially thought Indianapolis resident Latoya Ammons and her family concocted an elaborate tale as a way to make money. But after several visits to their home and interviews with witnesses, Austin said simply, "I am a believer." Not everyone involved with the family...

Obama has called the attack that resulted in American deaths at Benghazi a “phony scandal,” but the latest news shows just how much disdain he has for holding anyone in his administration accountable for failure. From The Blaze: Charlene Lamb, cited for failures in leadership from the Department of State’s own Accountability Review Board report, has been promoted to Regional Security Officer. We’ve heard rumor that she’s slated for international duty in Canada. She started the security officer training last week, much to the dismay of many within the State Department. For those not keeping track, Charlene Lamb was in

Despite tea party grumbling, John

WICHITA FALLS — With five weeks to go before the primary, tea partiers are still grumbling about Sen. John Cornyn. But grumbling isn’t the same as spitting mad. After a dozen years in the Senate and his climb to become the party’s deputy leader, he’s the definition of the “establishment” many of them despise. He’s not aggressive enough, they say. He abandoned Sen. Ted Cruz in the fight to defund Obamacare, they say. “Yeah, I hold it against him. Doesn’t mean I won’t vote for him, but I hold it against him,” said Wayne Pharries, 48, a commercial banker who

Hillary Clinton hasn´t gotten behind the wheel in a long, long time. The former first lady and potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, who has had drivers for much of her three decades in public life, said Monday that she hasn´t driven a car since 1996. Clinton made the confession at the National Automobile Dealers Association meeting in New Orleans. “The last time I actually drove a car myself was 1996,” the 66-year-old Clinton told the audience. “And I remember it very well, and so does the Secret Service, which is why I haven’t driven since then.”

Only 20-some months after Latino voters helped propel President Obama back to the White House, Republican leaders will likely bring immigration reform proposals to a vote in the House this summer. Why wait? First, they have to get past the threat posed by their congressional primaries. This is a pretty remarkable commentary on the imbalance within the party. The Republicans´ very vocal, very energized far-right conservatives strongly oppose any measures meant to relax rules around immigration. The party´s quieter, more moderate majority is less fervent; in most cases, the party´s establishment recognizes the need to reach out to the Latino

Less than a year after raising $1.5 million for his Bitcoin exchange start-up BitInstant, CEO Charlie Shrem has been charged with money laundering. A news release from U.S. prosecutors in Manhattan said that Shrem knowingly facilitated illegal purchases on the now-shuttered underground drug marketplace Silk Road. Silk Road was a Web site that allowed users to buy everything from heroin to fake IDs. To help preserve users´ anonymity, the site required all transactions to be conducted in bitcoins. According to the government, a man named Robert Faiella worked with Shrem to sell bitcoins to Silk Road users. The two men

When President Obama takes center stage for the State of the Union Address on Tuesday night, he is certain to address the issue of economic inequality. (snip) 1) Raise the minimum wage: Most important, the minimum wage has been central to the nation´s efforts to provide a base of support to working Americans. Since its enactment in 1938, the federal minimum wage has been integral to boosting the income of workers in some of the lower-paying jobs. But current minimum wage levels are not adequate. Most economists agree that there is room to increase the minimum wage without any dramatic impact on unemployment.

If you want to know why the left is wrong about income inequality, you need to watch this Margaret Thatcher video. In just a few minutes, the “Iron Lady” explains how some – perhaps most – statists would be willing to reduce income for the poor if they could impose even greater damage on the rich. This picture is another way of getting across the same point. It was sent to me by Richard Rahn (famous for the Rahn Curve), and it uses two pizzas to show how leftist policies would “solve” inequality. (Photo) I like this analogy, and not

A day after he delivers his State of the Union address, President Obama will head to a Costco store in suburban Maryland to speak about the economy, the White House announced Monday. The president’s remarks, which are open to the media but closed to the public, will come at Costco’s Lanham store at about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. The administration announced no other details about the speech, but it’s possible the president will use the event to push for greater federal investment into infrastructure, research and other areas. Mr. Obama is also likely to again address the growing issue of income

Washington - "I am not a member of any organized political party," Will Rogers once joked. "I am a Democrat." Plenty has been written on the current fight for the soul of the Republican Party. But as President Barack Obama unofficially rings in the sixth year of his administration with Tuesday´s State of the Union address, another intriguing struggle may be emerging -- between moderates and progressives on the Democratic side. It´s not a divide on a par with the cavernous pre-New Deal divisions of Rogers´ day. Not even close. But it is taking on growing importance as Democrats, frustrated with

Mitt Romney has criticised President Barack Obama´s presence on the world stage - claiming he has been outperformed by Russian President Vladimir Putin ´time and time again´. The former Masssachusetts Governor suggested that America´s stature on the international political scene has ´diminished´ in recent months while Russia has managed to ´elevate´ its position. Romney, who was beaten by Mr Obama in the 2012 U.S. presidential election, gave the damning verdict during an interview with NBC. He said: ´I think most observers of the international political scene suggest that Russia has elevated itself in stature and America has been diminished.´ Mr Romney, who managed
