RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I sit here today, I am -- yeah, I guess I´ll admit it. I am somewhat amazed. Last week, even though I knew this was coming, even though on Friday I predicted it to you, I´ll let you hear the prediction again in a moment just to refresh your memory. When the CBO report came out, the revised CBO report, they have now additional years of Obamacare to plug into the formula, and they learn that Obamacare is gonna kill even more jobs than originally thought. Two and a half million additional jobs killed by 2017

A candidate for U.S. Senate in Iowa, who calls himself a “life-long Republican,” once donated $1,000 to the Senate campaign of Democrat Jon Corzine. Mark Jacobs, a Republican businessman who is running for the Senate seat of retiring Democrat Tom Harkin this year, gave the money to Corzine, the CEO of Goldman Sachs who was running for Senate in New Jersey in 2000.

If there have ever been two people that my reservoir is overflowing with, it´s the Clintons. I don´t even... I´m not even sure I believe this latest so-called treasure trove.

House Speaker John Boehner said something noteworthy at the recent House Republican retreat on Maryland’s Eastern Shore: “It’s important that we show the American people we’re not just the opposition party, we’re actually the alternative party.” To be sure, there’s nothing wrong with opposing; the phrase “loyal opposition” boasts a distinguished lineage in English parliamentary history, as well as American congressional history. However, opposing only gets you half the way there; blocking the other side’s forward motion is not the same as making forward motion yourself. So yes, opposing is fine—but winning is better.

Glenn Beck: ‘NBC Has Gone Full-Fledged

Some conservative websites and commentators have expressed outrage that NBC’s Olympics opening video referred to communism as “one of modern history’s pivotal experiments,” and Glenn Beck joined in Monday to vent at NBC, mockingly crying, “I didn’t realize that killing 50 million people was a pivotal experiment!” Beck said, “I couldn’t believe NBC has gone full-fledged dark and insane.” He said in any sane country “this would brand NBC as a communist network,” and seriously doubted anyone at any time would dare refer to fascism in the same way. He explained that Russians had a “collective heart” in those days “because

The Obama administration has yet to finalize 28 additional regulations under Obamacare that could lead to an “avalanche” of regulatory burden on the economy, according to an analysis by the American Action Forum. A report released Monday by Sam Batkins, director of regulatory policy at American Action Forum, details the billions in cost and millions in paperwork hours that will result from the pending regulations, including the individual mandate, which has yet to be finalized. “In total, these 28 paperwork burdens total more than 45.7 million burden hours,” the report said. “For perspective, it would take more than 22,800

The Department of Health and Human Services says it has been unable to locate malicious software from Belarus inside Obamacare computer networks, according to a department spokeswoman. Joanne Peters, the spokeswoman, told the Washington Free Beacon that HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius received a letter sent last week from Rep. Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.) that urged HHS to shut down the network until the security of Americans’ private data can be assured. According to U.S. officials, an intelligence report produced earlier this month stated that software developers linked to the Belarusian anti-U.S. government were involved in

The White House on Monday pushed back against Iran’s efforts to set a “red line” preventing negotiations over its contested ballistic missile program, which has been permitted to continue undeterred under the recently signed interim nuclear accord. One of Iran’s top nuclear negotiators stated early Monday that Iran would under no circumstances negotiate with the West on its ballistic missile program. These remarks were accompanied by the announcement that Tehran had successfully test fired two ballistic missiles, which are the preferred delivery system for nuclear arms. “The defense-related issues are a red line for Iran,” Abbas Araqchi,

Shortages of Critical Drugs Continue

Despite efforts by the Obama administration to ease shortages of critical drugs, shortfalls have persisted, forcing doctors to resort to rationing in some cases or to scramble for alternatives, a government watchdog agency said on Monday. In recent years, drug shortages have become an all but permanent part of the American medical landscape. The most common shortages are for generic versions of sterile injectable drugs, partly because factories that make them are aging and prone to quality problems, causing temporary closings of production lines or even entire factories. The number of annual shortages — both new and continuing ones — nearly

The White House is relaxing
the employer mandate again

The Treasury Department on Monday rolled out more tweaks to the health-care law´s requirement that all large employers--those with 50 or more workers--provide insurance coverage to their workers. This is the part of Obamacare was supposed to take effect at the start of 2014, but was delayed by the White House this past summer as the White House was facing significant push back from employers. In today´s final rule, the Obama administration is essentially relaxing the employer mandate for 2015--in a big way for medium-sized businesses, and a smaller way for the largest employers. Here´s a rundown of the key changes.

(Update: a video initially included in this post was blocked immediately by the International Olympic Committee on "copyright grounds." An audio clip has been added.) Gee, where would anyone ever get the impression that high-profile liberals working in American media have a deathless soft spot for Soviet Russia? True, one does come away with that impression in only a specific, narrow circumstance -- whenever a liberal opens his or her mouth about the Soviet Union. Aside from that, hardly at all.

Daily Beast: Michael Sam Is ‘The

Following the footsteps of MSNBC last year, The Daily Beast has taken it upon themselves to label the NFL´s first (prospectively) openly gay football player Michael Sam “The NFL’s Jackie Robinson.” Sam, who played defensive end for the University of Missouri, came out to his teammates last August but only recently announced publicly that he is homosexual. Last year, MSNBC’s openly gay host Thomas Roberts compared the NBA’s Jason Collins to Jackie Robinson and today Ben Jacobs decided the ridiculous comparison was appropriate of Sam. Other than the fact that Michael Sam, if drafted, of course, will be the first openly

A deputy for House Speaker John Boehner has rejected Sen. Chuck Schumer’s Sunday suggestion that the House pass an immigration-boosting bill this year, but also delay implementation until after President Barack Obama leaves office in 2017. Schumer’s proposal was intended to counter Boehner’s statement last week that the GOP can’t pass an immigration rewrite because the legislators don’t Obama trust to enforce parts of the law that he does not like. “The trust concerns w/ President are not limited to immigration enforcement,” said a Monday tweet from Becky Tallent, Boehner’s immigration staffer.

Sources close to MSNBC host Joe Scarborough think he is seriously considering the prospect of leaving morning television to run for president in 2016. Last week, Scarborough was all smiles — even letting out a laugh — on “Morning Joe” when Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol suggested on the air that Scarborough could represent the “Jon Huntsman lane” in a 2016 GOP primary. But behind the scenes, those who know Scarborough are not laughing. It’s widely believed at MSNBC — including among network brass — that Scarborough is actively mulling a presidential bid, sources said. Meanwhile, some of Scarborough’s guests are

The White House on Monday said it’s “bogus” of House Republicans to argue that distrust of President Obama is standing in the way of enacting immigration reform legislation. Press secretary Jay Carney said the administration understood and was “even sympathetic to the fact that this is a tough issue for Republicans.” “But nobody buys that a Republican reluctance to deal with and pass comprehensive immigration reform” is because of Obama, Carney said. "It wasn´t the case in 2006. It´s not the case now." Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) last week said Obama needed "to demonstrate to the American people and my colleagues that he

Following the publication of documents relating to how former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton comported herself politically in the Washington Free Beacon, a CNN panel took on those revelations and their possible political implications. The panel also took on Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) attacks on Bill Clinton’s sexual exploits and the revelations contained in the documents relating to Clinton. Most of the members of the CNN panel concluded that Clinton is aided by how the media is portraying her. Paul has recently attacked Democrats who campaign with or accept donations raised by Bill Clinton because of his past behavior which

Mayor Bill de Blasio continued his push to unite a so-called "tale of two cities" and end economic inequality during his first State of the City address Monday. De Blasio said the inequality gap fundamentally threatens the future of the city and it would not be ignored by the city government. "In past decades, working people built our city, and for their hard work they were rewarded - not always with great wealth, but with a fundamental assurance, the knowledge that hard work could pull them from modest means into a growing middle class," said de Blasio.

Elijah Cummings is a key player in covering up and disseminating disinformation regarding the criminal misconduct of the IRS. From his perch as the ranking minority member of the House Oversight Committee, Cummings does his best to sow confusion as the committee pursues its investigation of the IRS. My daughter Eliana took a look at a piece of the Cummings story this past June in “The IRS’s best friend in Congress.” Cummings was back at it last week when Catherine Engelbrecht et al. appeared to testify at the House subcommittee hearing chaired by Rep. Jim Jordan this past Thursday. John saluted

President Obama has become “acutely” conscious of the “limits of his power,” reports the New York Times, obviously sharing the president’s sense of pathos. Modern-day expectations for government have become so unmoored from common sense that a federal bureaucracy of nearly 3 million employees, erupting daily in mandates and directives, can be portrayed with a straight face as inadequate to the presidency. Leave aside Obamacare and the unilateral Dream Act. In the last few weeks alone, the White House has alerted the nation’s schools that disciplining black students at higher rates than whites will put them at risk of a

A FEW days before the Super Bowl, MSNBC embarrassed itself with an obnoxious tweet implying that “rightwing” conservatives are such bigots that they were bound to “hate” a Cheerios commercial featuring a biracial couple and their adorable daughter, Gracie. The backlash was blistering and instantaneous, and the cable channel apologized and deleted the tweet. When it comes to playing the race card against anyone to its right, MSNBC is a recidivist. The smear over the Cheerios ad came just a few weeks after an on-air panel smirkingly joked about Mitt and Ann Romney’s newly-adopted black grandson and how incongruous he appeared

Chamber prods GOP on debt ceiling

The nation’s main business lobby on Monday called on the House to raise the debt ceiling, increasing pressure on Republicans to move a bill forward. The letter to lawmakers calls on the House to pass a “timely increase” to the debt limit, which had been suspended until Friday. The government´s debt is above $17 trillion. The Treasury Department has set a Feb. 27 deadline for raising the limit, arguing it might not be able to pay all U.S. obligations at that time. The chamber’s chief lobbyist, Bruce Josten, wrote that raising the debt limit would eliminate the threat of default and allow credit

Liberal groups are agitating for another round of filibuster reform, after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) controversial triggering of the nuclear option last year has done little to alleviate Senate gridlock. A coalition of labor and liberal groups have pressed Reid to make additional changes to the Senate rules this year, something that senior Democratic aides say is very possible. “We strongly urge Majority Leader Reid and Chairman [Patrick] Leahy [D-Vt.] to consider reforms to floor and committee rules that will hasten the confirmation of President Obama’s talented and qualified set of nominees,” they said in a statement.

Democratic strategist Angela Rye in an appearance on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” on Friday accused Republicans of trying to impeach President Barack Obama, because he’s “black in the White House.” “You don´t just fight to get the person out of office because you don´t like how they comb their hair, the color of their skin or the fact that they´re black in the White House. That´s not what you do,” said Rye, executive director and general counsel to the Congressional Black Caucus. Rye’s comments were made during a segment of the show on former Rep.
