Here’s why Rush survived pressure
on advertisers while O’Reilly didn’t

Legal Insurrecction, by William A. Jacobson

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 4/21/2017 4:41:53 AM

Bill O’Reilly’s Fox News career now swims with the fishes. The conventional wisdom is that after the NY Times exposed a history of sexual harassment settlements, and two new accusers came forward, advertisers “fled” the show, forcing the hand of News Corp and the Murdochs. That conventional wisdom is only partially correct — advertisers didn’t flee, they were chased away by the same organized effort as was used against Glenn Beck once upon a time, and Rush Limbaugh in 2012. Longtime readers will recall my extensive and groundbreaking research into the StopRush operation just after Limbaugh’s comments about Sandra Fluke in 2012, for

Let the left think they can shut down conservatives. The harder they hit, the harder we hit back. And eventually the truth wins, even if it takes a while.

Seem to remember a mattress company trying to re-up with Limbaugh. He said, "Thanks, but no thanks." Or some such.

In the 90´s when I first started listening to Rush he was advertising Snapple. He made it sound like the greatest drink in the world, so I bought some. It was ok, but not great. Then he stopped advertising them and nary a word about the greatest drink on earth after that. They stopped paying him to like it, so he no longer did.
I learned my lesson. I don´t believe celebrity spokesmen about anything, even if I like them.
That goes for O´Reilly too. Or Levin or anyone else. Just because an ad is on their show does not mean I am going to buy their junk or trust them.

BOR never ´got´ the Libertarian notion of conservatism. He was and is a judgmental, fussbudget, nanny who cannot abide those who think and live differently than he. True conservatives grant others the right to live any way they choose. True conservatives are the real ´Liberals´. Liberty is perilous and for adults only. Children need parenting and the ´State´ is more than happy to oblige. All it costs is everything.

#5 hits on a point the author overlooks. Conservatives may like some of Bill O´Reilly´s show, but they do not particularly like Bill O´Reilly. Conservatives generally like Rush Limbaugh, even if they do not listen to his show.

Being the know-it-all mastermind that he is, O´Reilly´s personality fits perfectly with someone that may be a sexual predator. He says to his desired paramour, "give me what I want because I know what´s best" - typical O´Reilly discourse. Now this big gas bag can go whistle dixie. I never liked him or his quasi-conservative ideas or his so called journalistic style. And as much as I am NOT a fan of Pope Francis (though I still like and respect the him), I´m glad that he did not grant O"Reilly a personal audience.

It´s very fashionable for squishy centrists to tell everyone how much they dislike Rush Limbaugh. But it always turns out that those who arrogantly dismiss him never listened to him in the first place.
You go ahead, but I´ll tell you you don´t know what you are talking about because I have been a listener since the 80´s and Rush is right -always has been.

Looks like Reply #4 will not be buying any gold or silver, which is heavily touted on most programs. Most of these hosts are total sell- outs to whatever will line their coffers. Some of the advertisements are simply unfathomable, especially when the hosts themselves tout the products. Is there ANYTHING they don´t use or purchase ? Not if they are paid to say so.

O´Reilly is a centrist. Rush is a Conservative. Real Conservatives stick by their Conservative allies. Centrists simply do what they think is best for themselves and the heck with everyone else. O´Reilly often said he is against the death penalty and all for hard labor in prison. Typical centrist since he knew there was no such thing as hard labor in prison but it sounded so compassionate. O´Reilly is nothing more than a younger Larry King.

The "Poor Illegal" Media Narrative

Townhall, by Arthur Schaper    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 8/14/2017 5:13:41     Post Reply
When I was training to be a teacher, my mentors taught me to be tough at the outset. I learned that to be lenient, to go by compassion rather than consistency, hurts everyone. No one learns anything. The rule of law makes learning, producing, and succeeding possible. This lesson on learning and discipline illustrates the fundamental good that follows from our President enforcing our nation’s immigration laws. It is not compassionate to Americans or immigrants to allow illegal aliens to ignore our laws. The corruption rampant in Los Angeles County and throughout other major urban areas follows from the arbitrary

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch set aside ethical norms and good judgment to take her secret, election-year meeting with former Present Bill Clinton at an Arizona airport. Her agency was investigating Clinton´s wife, Hillary, and pondering the permutations of prosecuting her as she ran for president. In doing so, she paved the way for then-FBI Director James Comey to take unprecedented decision-making power in the investigation of Hillary Clinton´s emails. She also plunged her department and the White House into a panic when a local reporter got wind of the meeting. We finally know a bit more about it, thanks to a

Will Democrats Bet That Their

While left-wing activists were brawling with white supremacists in Charlottesville this weekend, another political battle was taking place in Atlanta. At Netroots Nation, an annual gathering of the nation’s progressive leaders, some Democratic lawmakers declared war against their own party’s centrists. Senator Elizabeth Warren, a likely Democratic candidate for president in 2020, proclaimed that Democrats would not be “going back to the days of welfare reform and the crime bill.” She sneered that Democrats used to tell party members to “give up, keep your heads down, be realistic, act like a grown-up, keep doing the same old same old.” But

   

 

  


 
Between alt-right and ‘antifa,’

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA | Eight years after it was proved — even more convincingly than the moon landing — that a black man can get elected president of the United States of America, we still have slow learners stuck in the past. It’s the “Obliterate History Neanderthals” versus the “I’m White and I’m Proud Brass Knuckle Draggers.” Truly, dumb and dumber — and not always in that order. The only people dumber than the Neanderthals and Brass Knuckle Draggers are the insufferably tedious referees known as the Stupid Media who shape the country as a barking mad carnival, whipping up hysteria

Cuba’s assault on US diplomats proves

‘Sometimes we allow ourselves to be trapped by a certain way of doing things,” President Barack Obama said back on July 1, 2015. But re-opening the US Embassy in Cuba would show “we don’t have to be imprisoned by the past.” Well, it’s now obvious that Cuba’s government has no desire to break with the past: Several American diplomats (and at least one Canadian) have come home from Havana after losing their hearing — victims of a sonic device placed in or near their Cuban residences. Raul Castro and his minions deny all responsibility, of course, and it’s not clear that

President Trump´s national security adviser said Sunday that the violence that broke out in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend "meets the definition of terrorism." H.R. McMaster told ABC´s "This Week" that "anytime that you commit an attack against people to incite fear, it is terrorism." One person died Saturday when a car rammed into a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville as tension boiled over at a white supremacist rally. McMaster called it "a criminal act against fellow Americans. A criminal act that may have been motivated — and we´ll see what´s turned up in this investigation — by this hatred

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., the former Democratic National Committee chairwoman known in political circles as DWS, is knee-deep in a scandal that involves a laptop, money and possible foreign entanglements. Unlike the Trump Russian scandal, however, The Washington Post and New York Times have barely reported on the story, which has conservatives observing -- with President Donald Trump´s Twitter account concurring -- that the mainstream media have a double standard. In February, the House sergeant-at-arms yanked House computer network access for five information technology staffers who worked as shared employees for some 30 House Democrats. Capitol Police

Liberals are criticizing President Trump for belligerent language directed toward North Korea. They think he should be more diplomatic, like other presidents have been for the last 25 years. Because that worked so well, apparently. This short video clip of President Clinton announcing the 1994 deal under which North Korea agreed not to develop nuclear weapons in return for a great deal of money is a great reminder of how we got where we are now. The deal was incredibly incompetent, if you think Clinton was actually trying to prevent the North Koreans from obtaining nukes, as opposed to sweeping the

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is blocking the confirmation of President Trump´s nominee to run the Justice Department´s antitrust division, offering no explanation and refusing an offer to meet with Makan Delrahim, according to a source with knowledge of the confirmation process. Warren reportedly put a "hold" on Delrahim´s nomination as the Senate confirmed dozens of nominees for key administration positions before lawmakers started their August recess. Warren´s obstruction came after Delrahim´s nomination sailed through the Senate Judiciary Committee by a 19-1 vote featuring broad support from some of the Democratic Party´s most liberal members.

From warnings of “fire and fury” to declarations of “locked and loaded,” President Trump is dealing with the North Korean crisis his way. Naturally, heads are exploding all over Washington. You can’t change the way things are done, the chin-strokers and gatekeepers shout hysterically! You have to follow the road most traveled! Nearly seven months into Trump’s term, it’s not just the irredeemable haters who can’t accept the outcome of the election. Even otherwise-sensible people refuse to come to grips with the meaning of Trump’s victory. Voters wanted change, but Washington doesn’t. And that clash of wants defines the endless war over the

Kelly summoned aides to President Donald Trump’s golf club there to ask about their portfolios and make suggestions on how to make the West Wing communicate better and get more done, while giving people clear responsibilities and then holding them accountable. The role of chief strategist Steve Bannon has come under particular scrutiny in several conversations, particularly because he has a large staff, including an outside public relations expert, but no specific duties.

Acosta made no attempt to look at his own employer or the rest of the news media in the mirror for the amount of free publicity they’ve given neo-Nazis over the last few years, but that would require a level-headed kind

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — White House officials, under siege over President Trump’s reluctance to condemn white supremacists for the weekend’s bloody rallies in Charlottesville, Va., tried to clarify his comments on Sunday, as critics in both parties intensified demands that he adopt a stronger, more unifying message. A statement on Sunday — issued more than 36 hours after the protests began — condemned “white supremacists” for the violence that led to one death. It came in an email sent to reporters in the president’s traveling press pool, and was attributed to an unnamed representative. It was not attributed directly to Mr.

Dear John: You recently criticized the FBI for its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. I am a retired FBI agent and extremely proud of my career and service. I feel compelled to write. Former FBI Director James Comey’s statements, testimony and behavior are truly abhorrent. Comey admitted under oath before Congress that the bureau did not utilize a federal grand jury in the Hillary e-mail investigation. Furthermore, he testified that in his experience, when dealing with attorneys, you can obtain information easier and faster than via a federal grand jury. Never, I repeat never, in my 25-year career have I or any FBI agent
