Brian Williams Turned to Steve
Schmidt on Election Night:
Tell Them It's Time to Shut
This Limbaugh Down

NewsBusters, by Tim Graham

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/9/2012 10:08:28 AM

Now that the Republican Party lost another presidential election, the hot trend right now in the liberal media is to turn to the conservative-trashing Republicans and urge them to tell the public once again how the conservatives are ruining American politics with their crazy talk. Perhaps because he loves Barack Obama so deeply, NBC anchor Brian Williams spent Election Night in a snit over some odd tweets by Donald Trump somehow denying America is a democracy. He turned to Steve Schmidt -- ahem, the strategic genius who lost the last presidential campaign to Obama -- to explain why

Steven Schdmit is all that is wrong with alleged Republicans. He's a disgusting pig who is openly supporting the end of the First Amendment. I wish we could figure out a way to bankrupt the corrupt media. Who made them the artibers of who gets to speak?

If the left is desperate to shut up Rush, he must be doing something right.

I have no problem at all with those who don't like Rush simply not listening. But no, that's not enough. The left wants to silence him like they want to silence all dissent.

This hand wringing and letting the media decide the who's and why's is always annoying.

52K Florida
116K Virginia
104K Ohio

That's the difference between Obama and
a President Romney. So do you really need
to throw the baby out with the bath water ?

Life is good these days for NBC's young Mr. Williams. A reported $250,000.00 weekly for simply showing up and reading the "DNC Talking Points," for a half-an-hour daily, Mondays through Fridays.......As for Field Marshal Steven von Schmidt, wasn't he the chief architect of our 9,522,083 voter margin landslide defeat in 2008?

In other words, serious-minded Republicans should start thinking and talking like liberals and get with the program, is that about right?

when I talk about a civil war in the Republican Party, what I mean is it`s time for Republican elected leaders to stand up and to repudiate this nonsense, and to repudiate it directly. There has been a culture of fear and intimidation that you are not a real conservative if you ...stand up to these extreme statements...the stuff should start being repudiated by responsible leaders.

I still don't know what is "extreme" about anything Rush has said. If you must call him extreme, you must then call all conservatives "extreme", because Rush doesn't tell us what to think, he reflects what we already think.

Rush has always been the first target to shut conservatism up in America. For the entire 20+ years he has been on the radio, the FCC and liberals everywhere have tried to silence him. But he is ready for yet another onslaught.

This listener will not be having any second thoughts about Rush. He is courageous under fire (and there's been plenty of fire), he's survived sudden total deafness, drug-addiction, marital problems....

....but never once has he compromised his love of country and his core conservatism. Can he be bombastic and juvenile at times? Yes. But is the voice of most conservatives? I'd say yes.

He has almost single-handedly educated American listeners to how gov't actually works and what liberals are really up to. He survived this long because he told the truth, which reflected our suspicions and our fears and our hopes.

If Rush is hushed, the biggest earthly hope conservatism has to prevail in America will be silenced. THAT is why the enemy wants him shut down.

We didn't get the base out. McCain got more votes, and that was probably because of Sarah.

Bush was reelected with more votes than Obama.

Don't take advice from Brian Williams.

I will never, ever agree with Brian Williams. Rush doesn't need to be shut down, but something is wrong with him.

There were some clips of Rush on Greta last night, and he looks awful. Fat, sweating, agitated, manic. Ranting, wringing his hands. I liked the old more reasoned Rush. I don't know the guy I saw last night.

Mr. Williams, a member of the "Main Stream Media" calls for censorship of another person. The people to whom he is loyal have achieved more power, which can be used against their opponents. The United States was ("were"?) not "democracy", but rather a Republic, with supposed limits on the use of force against "minority" political elements. We may see some (more) examples of people being "shut down" over the years. By the way, I wonder what "shut down" means to Mr. Williams. Historically the people who call themselves "government" are quite expert at "shutting down" other people. Maybe they will tell us.

Brian Williams would seem to want Rush to talk and talk since he believes it hurts Republicans, so why would he want him silenced?

I think they know it was much closer than they expected, and the fraud of ballot box stuffing was the winning formula.

What we need is for a ballot resolution in California to apportion the Electoral College votes proportionally according to the winner of each Congressional District.
And champion this notion across America.

Why are Republican districts disenfranchised of their vote by alloting the states total EV on winner-take-all?

This alone would change the dynamics of future Presidential elections and campaigning since about 18 Republicans are in the House which would mean the Dems wouldn't get the 55 EV - they'd need to find 18 somewhere else.

Read #3. Then read it again. Romney would have been a great president, but face it, he was a weak and awkward campaigner. Ditto Ryan. Oblahma on the other hand is an incredibly strong campaigner and had the media on his lap as the historic first black president. Now is not the time to cave in on all our principles. Now is not the time to be for amnesty. Let the democrats own this disasterous economy, replace Reince Whatshisname, draft some quality GOP candidates and do a repeat of 2010.

Romney is a Moderate, and he avoided talk radio like the plague. Calling in twice to the Sean Hannity show just doesn't count. Romney ran the text book perfect moderate campaign, refusing to make the circuit on talk radio. As usual, it is a loser campaign. I love how the GOP is supposed to get rid of Pundits they refuse to listen to.

I listened to Rush yesterday and an old, white, fool called in and told him something I read right here on Lucianne.com during the time we were chosing a candidate. Rush was dumbfounded and desperately trying to reason with the man to no avail. The comment? "There is no difference between Obama and Romney, they are both socialists. What difference does it make if Obama drives us over the cliff at 90 miles per hour or Romneyt drives us over the cliff at 70 miles per hour?" He went on to say that he voted for a third party candidate and "until the Party listenes to me and puts up a conservative, I will not make any contributions or vote Republican."

Sound familiar to anyone?

Brian Williams is an arrogant high school grad who married well (but not wealthy), got picked for his looks and voice to follow Brocaw, and has never ever stopped once to recognize that he doesn't follow journalistic ethics and is not actually a non-biased straight news guy. He doesn't really know what journalism is. Actually, what he has in common with Rush is that they both give OPINIONS in their broadcasts....except that Limbaugh makes no bones about him being an opinion maker and Williams masquerades (in his own mind as well) as a well respected straight journalist.

With every word, the libs, dems, and MSM show that they are true communists, not libs or socialists, but communists. The communist playbook includes silencing your opposition. These people cannot debate, instead, they smear and demand that the opposition not be allowed to speak. That is one of the hallmarks of communists.

The real problem is not Rush Limabaugh's free speech ideas, the problem is that the national GOP RINOS have lost touch with their base.

They didn't do much to help Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz--they had their country-clubbers types ready to go and only grudgingly supported the "Tea Party" candidates after their pretty boys were defeated.

Brian Williams is no David Brokaw, Chancellor or Brinkley...he is just a libtard pretty boy who reads daily propaganda points from the DNC--

Give us the news straight and without selective reporting--Williams should be ashamed to call himself a news journalist.

Author’s Note: This week, capitulating to Islamic-supremacist agitation led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Brandeis University reneged on its announced plan to present an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the heroic human-rights activist. In my 2010 book, The Grand Jihad, I devoted a chapter to the origins and purposes of CAIR, its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas-support network, and its aim to silence critics of Islamic supremacism. In light of the continuing success of this campaign — despite a federal terrorism-financing prosecution that exposed CAIR’s unsavory background — it is worth revisiting that history. What follows

Sen. Rand Paul says potential White House rival Jeb Bush was inarticulate when he described immigrants who come to the United States illegally as committing an "act of love." In an interview that aired Sunday, Paul said that those immigrants "are not bad people" but added the United States "can´t invite the whole world" inside its borders. Paul, the Kentucky Republican eyeing a 2016 campaign, says Bush should have kept his focus on controlling the U.S. borders. Bush, a former Florida governor, says the GOP cannot demonize immigrants and should show compassion. He described illegal immigration as an "act of love" by people

The company, often derided as "Government Motors" because of the billions of tax dollars infused into it by President Obama, has been under fire this month because of ignition switch problems linked to dozens of crashes and perhaps as many as 13 deaths.

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons. One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours. The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center,

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted.

Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
