RUSH: I also have something I want to get into today, something a little philosophical. Well, I say it´s philosophical. It´s probably the way I´m gonna approach it. I ran into a piece today by Dr. Eamonn Butler at the AdamSmith.org Web page, and he comments on a book that he´s reading. It´s Daniel Hannan, the English member of parliament who has a new book out called "How We Invented Freedom And Why It Matters." It illustrates a major difference in the perception of freedom on the continent, meaning in Europe, as opposed to Great Britain, the island. And Great

Wall Street adviser: Actual unemployment
is 37.2%, ´misery index´ worst in 40 years
Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/21/2014 5:13:50 PM     Post Reply
Don´t believe the happy talk coming out of the White House, Federal Reserve and Treasury Department when it comes to the real unemployment rate and the true “Misery Index.” Because, according to an influential Wall Street advisor, the figures are a fraud. In a memo to clients provided to Secrets, David John Marotta calculates the actual unemployment rate of those not working at a sky-high 37.2 percent, not the 6.7 percent advertised by the Fed, and the Misery Index at over 14, not the 8 claimed by the government. Marotta, who recently advised those worried about an imploding economy to get a

RUSH: Well, Bret Baier at Fox News tweeted that he´s heard the same thing: Wealthy Republican donors are starting to give up on Chris Christie for 2016. F. Chuck Todd at NBC News has tweeted the same thing. "Some GOP Donors Think Christie´s ´2016 Hopes are Done.´" Today, Christie gave his inaugural address to commence his second term as governor of New Jersey. Among the things he said: "We must shun partisanship. We must take action on behalf of the people."

Chamber spent $50 million on lobbying
amid push for immigration reform

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce spent more than $50 million on lobbying last year as it pushed for action on immigration reform. Typically the biggest K Street spender in Washington, the business group funneled about $52.7 million toward lobbying efforts in 2013, according to disclosure records. In the last quarter of the year, the group spent almost $16.5 million. Some of that money went toward lobbying on immigration reform, which is a top legislative priority for the business community. The Chamber played an instrumental role in getting a comprehensive immigration reform bill through the Senate last year by helping the “Gang of Eight”

Obamacare Enrollment Numbers Faked

RUSH: The Obamacare enrollment numbers are totally faked. They don´t know how many people have signed up. They don´t know how many people have paid. The only thing they know is that four-out-of-five people that are in the system already are getting subsidies. That´s all they know. Yet ever since before the holidays, the media has been bragging and talking about how the website´s been fixed and people are signing up and like we got six million people have enrolled. We don´t know that because nobody can prove it. The numbers are fake. Here´s the latest on Obamacare from TheBlaze.com:

RUSH: The Christie scandal is being used for a whole lot of reasons. It´s being used to destroy Christie obviously, but it is also serving another purpose, and that is it is permitting the media to ignore a whole bunch of other Democrat scandals going on that are not being reported on. This Wendy Davis out of Texas is a genuine head case. You remember her. This is the woman that made a big, big splash filibustering an anti-abortion law in Texas. And so she became an immediate star in the Democrat Party in Texas, and they began pushing her for

   

 

  


 
Obama´s Deranged

RUSH: Obama has an 18-page, if you read it on the Internet, interview/story with New Yorker Magazine. He said that Al-Qaeda is a JV unit. So the Al-Qaeda unit that did all the damage in Benghazi was the JV unit. Obama also said that he would not let his son, Trayvon Martin, play football -- while watching football, apparently. In an interview that runs the weekend of the NFL championship games, Obama said he would not let his son play the game. He doesn´t have one, of course. But if he did, his son would have looked like Trayvon Martin,

An acquaintance of mine tells the story of finding himself in the midst of a public demonstration against Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The chant being raised, so reminiscent of the 1960s, was: Hey, Hey, Ho Ho! Stephen Harper Has Got To Go. My acquaintance asked a placard-bearing young woman, obviously a student, what precisely she objected to in Harper´s conduct and policies. She was unable to respond. He repeated his question and, after some hesitation on her part, received the answer: "I don´t know, but he´s got to go." Ipse dixit!

Is a mini ice age on the way? Scientists warn

The Sun´s activity is at its lowest for 100 years, scientists have warned. They say the conditions are eerily similar to those before the Maunder Minimum, a time in 1645 when a mini ice age hit, Freezing London´s River Thames. Researcher believe the solar lull could cause major changes, and say there is a 20% chance it could lead to ´major changes´ in temperatures. ´Whatever measure you use, solar peaks are coming down,´ Richard Harrison of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire told the BBC. ´I´ve been a solar physicist for 30 years, and I´ve never seen anything like this.´ He says the phenomenon could

Conservatives could react to President Barack Obama’s NSA speech today with a collective “whew,” sop their brows, and say it could have been a lot worse. President Obama did not give in to the pleas of the antiwar Left and cripple the NSA completely, or end the collection and analysis of telephone metadata. He should receive some credit for a speech that recognized the long American history of signals intelligence — the interception of foreign communications — and its great benefits during the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, WWII, and the Cold War. Critics who want the NSA’s activities shut

With invitations warning guests to ‘EBYC’ — Eat Before You Come — and rumours they’ll be dancing to star turns from Beyonce and her rapper husband Jay Z, it won’t be your usual White House knees-up. Michelle Obama was 50 yesterday and President Barack Obama will be feting his redoubtable First Lady tonight with a party that will give them the chance to let their hair down and forget their troubles for a few hours. The email inviting guests to the ‘snacks & sips & dancing & dessert’ advised them to wear comfortable shoes and practise their dance moves. Purse-lipped Washington etiquette experts

Our Perpetually Surprised President

While President Obama gives (yet another) speech today on NSA surveillance, the New York Times reports White House aides say “Mr. Obama was surprised to learn after the leaks by Edward J.Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor, just how far the surveillance had gone.” Our president’s time in office has been one of wonder and astonishment. He was surprised by the depth of the recession when he came into office. He then became surprised at the duration of the bad economy. He was surprised to win the Nobel Prize for Peace. He was surprised there were no shovel-ready jobs. He

President Barack Obama said that racial tensions may have softened his popularity among white voters within the last two years, according to a story posted on the New Yorker magazine’s website today. “There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,” Obama said in the article by David Remnick, appearing in the magazine’s Jan. 27 edition. “Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president,” Obama said in his most direct comments

The NFL is reportedly considering abolishing the extra point after touchdowns as part of its scoring system. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told the NFL Network on Monday that the league´s Competition Committee is looking at proposals that would end extra point kicks after touchdowns in favor of a revised scoring system. "The extra point is almost automatic," Goodell told the network. "I believe we had five missed extra points this year out of 1,200 some odd (attempts). So it´s a very small fraction of the play, and you want to add excitement with every play." "There´s one proposal in particular that I´ve

There was a party in the East Room of the White House Saturday night, an affair attended by a reported 500 people, a lavish celebration with celebrities galore, appearances by some of the world´s most popular performers, lots of dancing and powerful government officials, including, of course, the most powerful official of all, the President of the United States. And the White House wants to make sure you know as little as possible about it. The event was First Lady Michelle Obama´s 50th anniversary party.

In a wide-ranging interview with the New Yorker, President Obama characteristically saw fit to cast aspersions on those who disagree with him. Obama told David Remnick: There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who really just dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black President. (Snip)I dislike President Obama because of his petulance. What other President would tell the opposition party in his first meeting with them, “I won. I’m the president,”? What other President would intervene in a local matter and declare that its police department had “acted stupidly” while admitting he did not have all

He doesn’t have a son — that we know of — but that didn’t stop President Obama from weighing in on the pro football concussion controversy. The president made those comments in a wide-ranging interview appearing in The New Yorker today. The Hill reports: President Obama said that he believed NFL players “know what they’re doing” and understood the impact that concussions could have on their long-term health in an interview with The New Yorker published on Sunday, adding that he would not let his son play pro football. “At this point, there’s a little bit of caveat emptor,” Obama

The world’s richest 85 people control the same amount of wealth as the total held by half the world’s population, according to a report issued today by the British-based anti-poverty charity Oxfam. The means the world’s poorest 3,550,000,000 (3.55 billion) people must live on what the richest 85 possess. Another way to look at it: Each of the wealthiest 85 Earthlings has access to the resources available to about 42 million of the world’s poor, a population equal to the total number of people living in Canada, with those all those from Kentucky and Kansas tossed in.

This is a story about Nelson Mandela, and it begins on Robben Island in 1974. Prisoner number 466/64 is writing up his life story, working all night and sleeping all day. (Snip) Everyone thought Mandela was a known entity, but he turns out to have led a double life, at least for a time. By day, he was or pretended to be a moderate democrat, fighting to free his people in the name of values all humans held sacred. But by night he donned the cloak and dagger and became a leader of a fanatical sect known for its attachment

As debate in Washington turns increasingly to the issue of income inequality, Gallup´s annual “Mood of the Nation” survey finds that two-thirds of Americans are dissatisfied with the current distribution of income and wealth in the U.S. When asked how satisfied they were with the “the way income and wealth are distributed in the U.S.,” 67 percent of respondents said they were dissatisfied, while 39 percent described themselves as very dissatisfied. In contrast, only 32 percent were content with America´s wealth distribution, and a scant 7 percent described themselves as very satisfied. While there is a sizable gap in sentiments

A new trend for male leggings, known as meggings, is about to hit the mainstream according to a new company which plans to make them accessible for all. Until now the super-tight trousers have been confined to the runway or worn only by rock stars but a new company plans to launch them on the high street. US duo Adam Freck and Andrew Volk, who launched their Chicago-based company Meggings Man Clothing in December, are specialising in leggings for the modern man. [Snip] Unlike traditional leggings, which are typically worn by women, ´meggings´ are designed for the male physique.

In a radio interview last week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) made some disparaging comments about pro-life conservatives, stating they had “no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.” Those remarks drew the ire of conservative talk show host Sean Hannity, who on his Monday radio program declared he had enough and was abandoning his home state, where he hosts his widely syndicated radio show and his high-rated Fox News Channel television program.

Older people do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe. Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full up, so to do humans take longer to access information, it has been suggested. Researchers say this slowing down it is not the same as cognitive decline. “The human brain works slower in old age,” said Dr. Michael Ramscar, “but only because we have stored more information over time. “The brains of older people do not get weak. On the contrary, they simply know

Monday´s program will examine the influence and image of presidential wives and will focus entirely on the spouse of President No. 41 and mother of President No. 43.
