RUSH: The Drive-By Media, the State-Controlled Media is abuzz -- bzz bzz bzz bzz bzz -- with the fact that Senator Marco Rubio will be our guest on this program in exactly one hour. They´re all talking about it. And the subject, of course, is amnesty. Uh, uh, sorry. Immigration reform. (imitating McCain) "Meaningful, comprehensive immigration reform, Limbaugh, that´s what it is. It´s not amnesty. We don´t call it amnesty." Sorry. Exactly right, Senator. It´s meaningful, comprehensive immigration reform. We put together a montage of the media all atwitter
Rubio is a fraud. Many are easily fooled smooth talking metrosexual, ala Obama. Amnesty for 11-20 million illegals is not a conservative principle, especially in this job market. Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin are not stupid. Rubio is the stupid one. The idea that millions of border state illegals are going to vote GOP because they´ll be business owners is a sick joke. 70% vote Democrat, as they have since Carter --even after Reagan gave them amnesty. Ah but Rubio looks great in a suit. Good grief. Stupid people should not be allowed to vote.
#2, repeat over and over again: Obama is the enemy. The Democrats are the enemy. People like Rubio, Boehner, McConnell, Romney, Graham and even McCain are NOT the enemy. They may often disappoint you or frustrate you because they don´t support you on all issues, but they are still preferable to the leftist Democrats by a wide margin. Once you and other anti-RINO inquisitors get that straight, then we might be able to mount a successful offensive against our real enemies.
#3, my friend, I have been preaching that message ever since I found this wonderful website. The granting of amnesty to 11-20 million law violators is not just another issue. In my opinion, it would mean a permanent minority status for the GOP, and, by extension, death of the Constitution. I´m a moderate, but at some point you´ve got to draw a line in the sand and amnesty is my line. If they approve this, the GOP is dead to me. I understand the need for compromise -- especially after last election -- but amnesty would be a structural and permanent shift in the electorate heavily favoring democrats in key swing states like NM, CO, NV, AZ, FL, and even VA and NC. I don´t think people out there understand how big of an issue this is.
Well, another one bites the dust. Rubio now officially disgusts me. I really don´t even care about his philosophy on this issue, the fact that he is obsessed with THIS crap when there are so many battles to be fought and won, and yet he wastes conservatives time with something not one true American feels is justifiable. Even Levin is dancing with this annoyance, despite the fact that anyone else who had the God-awful naivete to deal with the likes of Schumer and McCain would be excoriated.
Excellent comments #4. You speak for those of us who are grateful for what this country has represented for over 200 years, and how it was brought into existence. It is now being treated like a Monopoly Game. They, Republicans and Democrats alike, are selling our heritage and our future. I am beginning to loathe their lack of regard for these things many of us care deeply about.
Chris Matthews joined MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts Thursday to discuss his upcoming interview with President Obama, saying he would ask the President some “easier questions” before getting into “fun stuff”. MATTHEWS: [I’ll] get into questions that I want to get into, with executive management and political dysfunction in this country that we talk about all of the time on the program and get into some easier questions, for example, voter suppression efforts by the Republicans so he can bite into that. Obama’s appearance on the Hardball College Tour comes at a time when the President faces his lowest approval ratings among young voters
Hysteria: The Environmental Protection Agency chief says global warming is the most urgent threat to public health. Given that the whole climate change frightfest has fallen apart, how do people keep saying such things? EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy says she has dedicated her life to protecting the environment. It´s too bad she is not more dedicated to reality. If she were, her comments Monday before the left-wing Center for American Progress would have been different. But McCarthy knew who she was speaking to and told the group what it wanted to hear when she said, "I really see no greater issue and
´We have communicated in no uncertain terms with every player in the region that that´s a red line for us and that there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front or the use of chemical weapons."— Barack Obama, Aug. 20, 2012 "First of all, if you´ve got health insurance, you like your doctors, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. Nobody is talking about taking that away from you."—Barack Obama, multiple versions What would you rather be: an American lost inside an ObamaCare exchange or a Syrian rebel?
Contrary to what you might have heard, there really was a world communist conspiracy.Its purpose was not just agitation but propaganda. To bring it about, V.I. Lenin recruited a special corps of propagandists for what was to become the Communist International. For a fanatic like Lenin, it wasn´t enough merely to have a communist revolution in Russia. He wanted communism to take over the world, the fulfillment of Marx´s exhortation "Workers of the world, unite!" according to Stephane Courtois and Jean-Louis Panne, authors of "The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression," published in 1999. Lenin also feared that unless other countries
For all of their mutual public admiration, Presidents Clinton and Obama react differently to political trouble. Bill moved to the middle, while Barack always moves left. So it´s no surprise that Mr. Obama is responding to his ObamaCare rollout slump by doing his best Elizabeth Warren imitation. Mr. Obama returned to his favorite theme of rising income inequality on Wednesday, which he called "the defining challenge of our time." He ought to know since few Presidents have done more to increase inequality than he has. Median household income has fallen since the economic recovery began, while the rich who own capital
Immigration: Strong signs point to House Speaker John Boehner leading an amnesty cave-in that delivers millions of new Democratic votes. Republicans should man up and put border security front and center. The two words "Becky Tallent" resonate with conservatives in Congress the way "Howard Baker" did when Ronald Reagan welcomed the liberal Republican senator as chief of staff during Iran-Contra, bringing most of the Reagan agenda to a screeching halt; or the way the words "Susan Kennedy" did a decade ago when newly elected California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger crushed his supporters by hiring the hard-line Democratic operative as chief of staff. Speaker
In a wide-ranging economic stump speech Wednesday, President Obama focused laser-like on the growing gap between America´s rich and poor, despite polling that shows hardly anyone believes it´s the most pressing issue facing the U.S. The issue-pivot was an effort to help him move away from the drumbeat of criticism of his policies on health insurance reform and Iran´s nuclear program, one White House insider said on background. ´Rising inequality and declining mobility is bad for our democracy,´ he said during an event hosted by the far-left Center for American Progress. ´People get the bad taste that the system is rigged.´ ´I believe
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
