Your Rush Limbaugh Echo for Today, 4/7/10
Student NOTES from Institute juniors, not 'official'
Opening: Middle-of-the-Week for those that work.
Seg#1: States join the fight against ObamaCare
18 states have joined the fight to oppose ObamaCare. Rasmussen has 65% of people saying they are not buying [propaganda in Drive-by Media.] And that is after 20 years of pummeling them.
What going on with the national Census? One DC Hispanic activist encourages all to participate to take part in the $400billion give-out. "Please participate. No concern for immigration status." (Hispanic activist Rodrigo Leiva speaking in Spanish.) No one wants to know if they are legal.
>>> The 'community survey' is a whole different thing.
Segment#2: What? $2.5Trillion ???
Quote of the day: "It's like the back of your refrigerator—there are a lot of wires and the rest—but all you need to know is you open the front door and lights go on", says Nancy Pelosi.
McClatchey News ((reading: Americans are struggling to know when [ObamaCare] will affect them.)) I love it, folks.
www.mcclatchydc.com/2010/04/06/91696/health-care-overhaul-spawns-mass.html ((Reading on: phones are innovated.)) Reason people think this is because Obama was lying and deceiving. It was to be paid for by a couple of millionaires. ((Reading on: most to not take place until 2014.))
Seniors find out that the 'risk pool' will be established for them within the next few months. Whatever happened to the press for JOBS? Will Obama focus on that when he is in Prague next week? [Rush uses his Howard Cosell voice: "It's a nightmare out there—a total nightmare!] You ought to go in and demand it.
Pretend you are an Obama-Community-Agitator-Organizer. Demand it .!.
Tax refunds will be taken as your fine if you don't pay in. Obama said 95% of Americans would not see "one dime increase" in their tax bill. The IRS new policy just blew that sky high.
>>> We don't have the $2.5Trillion this will cost over ten years.
Seg#3: Obama Adm wants to change the approach to Jihadists
Ahmadinejad disses our young president on his no-nuke announcement. He says we will not attack with nukes any nation that does not have nukes. That is an open invitation. Obama thinks USA is the problem in the world.
Some say he sends a message to the world, but I disagree. He is not that naive. This is Obama's way of punishing America for sins and our founding. Ahmadinejad says Obama needs to get some experience.
Iran has no refineries and relies on imports. Someone said to block and sanction their gasoline imports. "No, no, no! We can't do that", some say. What are sanctions for if not to tighten the screws? Our sanctions are doing nothing.
Now we will talk to Muslim nations about healthcare, science, business start-ups. http://sweetness-light.com/archive/obama-cuts-radical-islam-from-strategy What are we doing anyway, "to have relationships with religious worlds." Do we have relationships with the 'Catholic world'?
Meanwhile, we do not have the money for this. What of our own schools?
Obama wants to stop calling them Jihadist/radicals and start building them hospitals. I can't image how families who lost members in the NYC WTC on 9/11 must feel.
>>> Is Tiger Woods interested in the reach-out to the Buddhist World.
Seg#4: The Regime could call kidnappers, 'unpaid baby sitters'
DbM/Democrats blamed Bush for a mine collapse but The Regime will not blame Obama for the mine collapse in West Virginia. They call up the CEO and grill him.
Why stop at being vague on Islamic Radicals? Why not call kidnappers, 'unpaid baby sitters'? Or thieves, 'wealth redistributors'.
We have ducks that have taken up residency in our yard pool. My pet dog Abbey barks at them but they just quack back. I don't have any turtles, yet. The local newspaper wrote an article that a leatherback turtle built a nest by my pool. I am not making it up. I got cited this week on my four outside lights. "Be in compliance, OR ELSE."
>>> I took the bulbs out to be in compliance w/Turtle-Enforcer.
S5: You can call me and a Republican president every name in the book,
>>> but you can't call Muslim extremists, 'Islamic Radicals'.
Seg#6: Truthfully, Greenspan blames Barney Frank and Chris Dodd
(Theme Music) One Left blog blames the WV mine disaster on Tea Parties; others blame Global Warming; others blame greed and Capitalism.
eMail asked me what I thought of Obama targeting the Iman American who praised the Ft Hood Jihadist. Andy McCarthy writes about it. It's an easy call for The Regime because this guy is an American. But if he is not an American you have to Mirandize him and give him a civilian trial.
Congress pushed for low cost housing, says Greenspan now. He now tells the truth about The Regime. You know what happens when you speak against The Regime. He says Congress doesn't listen.
>>> Greenspan lays Mortgage Meltdown at the feet
>>>>>>> of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd.
Segment#7: Quo Vadis, California?
Los Angeles mayor closes all departments two days a week, except cops, firemen, and those that make money. I wonder which those are. CA is an utter fiscal disaster. Another story says public employment retirement systems are underfunded by half a trillion dollars. What is going on in CA? www.physorg.com/news189783157.html What about the courageous union workers?
As the federal government has to bail out the states, it will enrich and expand the federal government. Now your great-grandchildren's $$ is being spent. You will still have a governor in your state, but to do anything you need Regime permission.
Caller-GA: Our town is 'privatized' with 90,000 citizens. We left Atlanta.
Are you accepting new residence? Do you have good healthcare?
Caller-still: Treasury-Clown-Geithner begs around the world. $1.5Trillion.
The problem with Deficit is not collecting but Regime spending.
>>> Caller: Regime took over Wall Street and next Main Street.
Seg#8: Finally, someone cracks the mystery about Rush's Break
$535billion in CA debt is larger than GDP of Saudi Arabia. How does this happen [with Liberals]? Obama Motors lost $4billion last quarter. In CA, the money supply could not have been real. CA health plans are so expensive and ObamaCare will save billions? Non-essential people will be sent home two days a week? If they are 'non-essential' why are they there?
You think it is bad now in CA, wait till the ObamaCare mandates kick in.
Caller: They send a missile over Jihadist to not embarrass Obama.
Regime could handle it: just tell him to blame Bush.
Caller: How was the Czech Republic? [Flying 18 hrs.]
How did you know? [Discussion]
Caller-still: Our treatment here was $30,000 (vs $10,000 w/flying.)
No, Mark Steyn didn't promise you a guest appearance on EIB.
Caller-guy-still: Give me a shot, Rush. I'm a scientist on AGW.
Don't take this personally, "Don't try this at home."
>>> [ED: Rush suggests he try cable news with small audience.]
Seg#9: Insane Left is in denial and Drive-by Media is dishonest
The taxpayers of CA will have to make up the shortfall. NY is almost in as bad a condition. If not them, then all of us.
I refuse to do with this show (allowing an inexperienced one to run it) what Obama has done to this nation.
Some people on the Left are literally insane, or not on the same planet. ((Reading: Katrina van den Hovel: We live in a country that is misinformed. We have a center-left country with a center-right media.))
Keep that in mind with this by Chris Matthews ((Clip: Think what it would be like if we didn't have healthcare for the elderly, and a VAT tax. The Right keeps hammering. Obama hasn't done a good enough job explaining the Socialist State.)) No, they don't dare be honest about The Regime. If Obama had run honestly about a Welfare State, he wouldn't have gotten 30%.
>>> You on the Left, go look at what was promised vs what we get.
S#10: The turtle build a nest and laid an egg when my lights were on.
Seg#11: They pressed to loan money they knew couldn't be paid back
(Music) Oh, no! NYC has to revoke housing support payments. Where did all the Stimulus Slush Fund money go? It is so bad out there that counterfeiters are making one dollar bills, and leaving them in the tip jar.
Hard times continue in DC, residents qualify for food stamps if they are on other assistance programs. Well, that doesn't necessarily mean hard times.
Tuesday, NASA signed a contract of $56million per astronaut to fly on Russian shuttles. Six of them will fly. Russia had to build more capsules to accommodate. Folks, our country was great at one time. Next time you know we are going to buy from China. After all, we illegally gave them the technology under the Clinton Adm.
Aaron Burnett speaks about the political leanings of Massey CEO of the WV mine. ((Clip: This is certain to be a factor in the coming Election.)) Has not the Obama Regime been in office for over a year. They polticitize every damn thing and purposefully divide this country.
((Clip-Greenspan: Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, Etc. Subprime.)) I don't hear Wall Street companies mentioned. The surge in demand was [government]. They pressed to loan money to people they knew couldn't pay it back. Does Greenspan have plans to be outside the country? He told the Truth.
The Value-added Tax is coming. See Morning Bell of Heritage Foundation.
President Obama was asked, "Are we over-taxed", and he rambled on. Then he was asked about the Chicago White Sox baseball team. Since there was no Teleprompter in attendance, we learned two things.
>>> (1) He is boring; and (2) he is dishonest. [POTUS Obama].
Seg#12: Value-Added Tax [VAT] and Cap & Tax will bring it home
Guards are protecting Tiger Woods from attractive fans. "Are you the stripper?" "We have to be very careful here", and then apologized.
This Regime is not going to reduce spending. We are going to get VAT. It really helped Greece, didn't it? Liberals like VAT because it is hidden. It hits at every step of the way from idea to product in your home or business. It is a fancy way of saying 'national sales tax'.
It will make The Regime even more powerful and [take freedoms]. Congress would have a bigger role in picking 'winners' and 'losers'. Companies will have to lobby more, spending your money to do so. They will pass it on.
Brian Riddell of Heritage Foundation writes. [Families paying more.] It will be a spending spree like none other, with average $33,000/household added.
>>> The Regime wants permanent power over a dependent class.
Segment#13: Where will taxation end up?
The average income per family in this country is $40,000 so how can the average family pay $32,000 to pay for The Regime? The Deficit is almost to the point that all the income would pay for running the gov't. If you earn $65,000/yr you are in the company of 90% of top earners. If you are an earner, you are punished.
I want to know when this Tiger Woods news will stop. News continues.
www.nydailynews.com/gossip/tigerwoods/2010/04/07/2010-04-07_tiger_woods_latest_alleged_lover_is_young_neighbor_raychel_coudriet_report.html They are scared to death one of the mistresses will get in and make a scene.
ED: FL rep :: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Debbie_Wasserman_Schultz
Remember Clinton, Pelosi, Regime told Democrats everyone would love them after ObamaCare passed? ((Clip of Democrats at Town Hall Mtg)) ((Clip-Debbie Wasserman Schultz: How can we be respectful when you lie? [chatter, yelling, disruption continuing, Booing], "Go home!")) You can't get more liberal than in her district, and she had SEIU thugs to prevent this from happening.
>>> Dick Morris predicts Republicans could win both House & Senate.
Rush says he is the first at his level to predict this.
Seg#14: Question about pressuring the Catholic Church
Go to www.RushforHillsdale.com ((Reading: VAT is the way they spell "Big Government" in Europe. Deficits were not reduced. The only persons it benefits is give legislators more money to give lobbyists.))
Caller: Will Catholic Church change? Are they being punished over ObamaCare? What is your take?
There is some guilt there; the Left tries to tear down institutions. The Catholic Church is despised over the Pro-Life stance; and also being a religion that is not the Earth-worship.
>>> Left trying to destroy the Church may actually strengthen Vatican.
Vatican now wants to exert control over the diocese in other countries.

From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Searchlight"
A couple of days ago, close to 100 people gathered in the little town of Searchlight, Nevada to help Senate Majority Leader Dingy Harry Reid kick off his re-election bid. Days earlier in Searchlight, over 10,000 tea party members attended the largest political rally in Nevada history to launch their campaign to give Dingy Harry the boot. (And, of course, he disparaged them.)
Reid claimed not to understand what the tea party wants. He said he understands why some people are angry at Washington; he understands people have lost their jobs, and foreclosure rates are skyrocketing. But, he says, the tea party people "who are really upset don't really know why they're upset." "What do they mean," Dingy Harry wonders, "when they call for more liberty and freedom?" He actually said that!
And so there you have it. With Nevada -- his state -- on the edge of economic ruin, with the leader of the regime, Obama, bad-mouthing Las Vegas at every opportunity, Dingy Harry believes that people are too stupid too know why they're upset. After ramming a government health care takeover down their throats against their will, Dingy Harry doesn't understand why people are demanding their freedoms and liberties be restored.
I mean, it's amazing, but Dingy Harry literally cannot grasp how exasperated and angry the American electorate is -- even with his own poll numbers being in the tank -- over the run-amok liberal policies of this current regime, over the out-of-control spending and debt, over Democrats governing against the will of the people. The man who declared, "This war is lost," is apparently lost himself. A precursor, Dingy Harry, to November: You're a loser. Get used to it.

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"The American people know instinctively that what this regime is doing is wrong. If the regime continues this way, even more will awaken."
"Snerdley, I know you're making a joke, but you may actually have swerved into one of the key reasons for this stupid new policy, and that is that Obama is showing off. Obama is symbolically showing the rest of the world, 'It's a new country. We don't hate you. We're not going to nuke you. You can nuke us, even -- we deserve it.'"
"If I'm Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or I'm Hugo Chavez, I say, 'You know what? I don't need to spend a whole bunch of money on nukes now -- all I gotta do is figure out how to get some smallpox!'"
"Has Obama befriended France? How? The only thing he did for Sarkozy was give him a five-inch platform to stand on so nobody would know he's 5'5"."
"I, of course, have my optimistic flame burning at all times, but I'm not unrealistic about it and I'm not phony optimistic. The optimism that I have is based on the faith that I still have in the American people, especially the ones who listen to this program."
"The worst thing about this is that the Russians will simply ignore the treaty. History is history, people are who they are, and the Russians always ignore treaties."
"Somebody just said, 'Wait a minute, you may be giving Obama too much credit on this Cominskey Park business, because Cominskey rhymes with Alinsky,' and clearly Alinsky is in the guy's head rent free, just like I am."
"When you educate people who don't know who Jimmy Carter is because they're not old enough, do you tell them that this regime is him on steroids?"
"One day a couple weeks ago, in the 25 to 54 demographic, Anderson Cooper got only 25,000 viewers in an hour. Twenty-five thousand people in the whole country. My friends, I, on this program, have 25,000 listeners on the corner of 60th and Madison in New York City."
"Unless Oprah or Snoop Dogg cut taxes, a whole generation of people is not even going to know what it means."
"To people that live in blue cities, their IRS refund check… I mean, the common term for it is 'Christmas in July'."
"The great characteristic in our nuclear deterrence was that these weirdos around the world never knew when we would use our nukes, but here comes Dr. Kevorkian, Barack Obama, committing national suicide for us."
"So how are we supposed to interpret this new nuclear plan? As promoting peace? Okay, promoting peace. Well, I think we've had a pretty good record for peace with our existing nuclear policy, don't you?"
"We're taking ourselves back. In fact, it's almost like we're sweeping our Cold War victory off the table to create a whole bunch of crisis and chaos, which is the order of the day."
"The regime wants to control everything, particularly Internet content. They want to make sure that what happened to talk radio does not happen to the Internet. They want to make sure that their point of view doesn't get snuffed out by the marketplace."
"There's no other way to say this, folks: Obama has done a great job of undermining our national defense. I mean, he is in the process of giving away our national security. Ask our allies."
"The views expressed by the host on this program are being interrupted by the official program observer who cannot stay quiet. What now, Snerdley?"
"You know, sick people make healthy people sick, so don't you let sick callers bug you, Snerdley. It's just like getting upset over the media being liberal."
"You're incredibly well spoken, Jan. You are very articulate, and you sound clean. Clean and articulate, just like Biden said about Obama."
"How does Obama know? How does he know what 'blue-collar baseball' is? I mean, this is class warfare in baseball. So the Cubs are the rich elites and the White Sox are the blue-collar team?"
"If you disagree with the regime, you are 'troublesome', and I'm honored to be troublesome. And vitriolic."
"This nuclear plan of Obama's is certainly not going to work. The people we want to like us, we have no problem with, and the people that hate us that we want to like us are never going to like us -- they're just going to take advantage of this."
"'Rush, how dare you laugh at people being taken advantage of?' Oh, yes, I admit it: I'm laughing at it because it's an unintended consequence of the regime."
"As I told you, my battle plan is to have my last check bounce, and it's written to the IRS. I have no animus against the IRS, don't misunderstand -- they're just the collection agency."
"One of the things that is most fun for me is to run across somebody who's been propagandized, give them a legitimate truth about something, and then see them invigorated and wanting more of it."
"Obama talks about education a lot, but it's very well worth your while to remember what he taught when he was a lecturer. He was not a professor, he was not adjunct -- he was a lecturer."
"Forget nukes -- we are going to voluntarily reduce our delivery systems with this new policy. This is about conventional ammo and warfare, and it's an area where we have vast superiority over the Russians and everybody else. We're actually going to disadvantage ourselves on purpose."
"By the way, Dingy Harry, we are not a minority; we are the majority. You in the regime are the minority here. Never forget that."

Senator Leahy, head of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has announced that he will not postpone hearings on the nomination of Goodwin Liu to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, even though Liu only just disclosed 117 previously withheld items requested by the Committee. These items include writings that reflect his positions on affirmative action, judicial activism, immigration, and "constitutional welfare rights." Leahy explained:
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
Under these circumstances, I wonder whether Leahy is making a mistake by rushing ahead. At the end of the day, the Dems will need some Republican votes to confirm Liu in the face of a filibuster. Even if they can stomach Liu's radical positions on issues like reparations to African-Americans, the likes of Susan Collins, Lindsey Graham, and Scott Brown aren't likely to be happy about efforts to limit the ability of Republicans fully to explore Liu's key writings and the reasons why he withheld many of them from the Senate.

My syndicated column today responds to Karl Rove's latest Census PSA and spreads the word about what census workers have been e-mailing me about their politicized, profligate jobs.
On a related note: D.C. Leader Calls on Illegal Immigrants to Fill Out Census for Taxpayer-Funded Resources.
Stoking the "I want mine" culture of entitlement on your dime.
No, this is not what the Founders intended.
