Your Rush Limbaugh Echo for Today, 5/5/10
Student NOTES from Institute juniors, not 'official'
Opening: We need to light a fire under Mayor Bloomberg.
Segment#1: NYC Mayor Bloomberg is no Rudy Giuliani
Tell him the bomber is a heavy user of salt and a big-time smoker.
Bill Clinton said [his voice next] "We got shellacked in midterms because we didn't pass HillaryCare. If you don't pass ObamaCare you are toast."
Now, David Obey will not seek reelection in WI. You don't give up that kind of power unless you see you will be defeated and embarrassed. "I fell on the sword for you guys; now make it worth my while."
The largest chunk of BP political donations, $2million, went to Obama PAC. They also try to influence energy policy. Barack Hussein Obama, Hmmm, hmmmm, hmm.
Just got a note that Newsweek is for sale. Should we buy it? It is a loser proposition unless we would change the content. Others suggest I write another book. Can't do it all, folks. Other people beat me some purchases.
"How can Obama convey a sense of competence?" W-Post Karen Tumulty says it is a scary week for the Obama Adm but could be an opportunity.
The NYC bomber was on a no-fly list and flew back and forth to Pakistan 13 times, while we wand down you and grandmothers. Read state-run media and you still can't find out what religion he is. He hated Bush. We predicted this. His home was foreclosed, blamed Bush; didn't like our drone attacks, didn't blame Obama; etc.
Friendly Media says, 'Adm was on this from Day One.' Bloomberg is no Giuliani. He blames Tea Party people, and then when it is found out about the Jihadist, he wants no backlash.
Obama is surrounded by Leftist hacks; no expertise at the highest levels; Janet Napolitano is deer-in-the-headlights. If anything comes along to distract Obama from his Agenda, he is lost. TOTUS, Teleprompter can't help him. Catching the bomber was dumb-luck without leadership.
Had Obama done anything meaningful or even competent his staff would have leaked it. Worse yet, in his arrogance he thinks he doesn't have anything to learn and others don't know what they are talking about. "Other people are working on the Gulf oil spill." Same with ObamaCare: now it is passed, he doesn't care.
>>> Obama gets something passed on his Agenda and moves on.
Rush says he is a little long in seg.1 and seg.2 will be shortened.
Seg#2: BHObama will have a problem tooting his accomplishments
Obama and other Democrats rely on rhetoric, not actions. David Obey, six month after he brought the gavel down for ObamaCare: no mas, no more.
"At some point, don't you think you have enough money?" said Obama. Don't you think you have enough campaign money, Mr President? Apply that to yourself. And W-Post Karen Tumulty asks if Obama can capitalize on his accomplishments. (?)
>>> The problem is: he has none.
For W-Post subscribers: Article | 05/05/2010
Karen Tumulty, ...Barack Obama's presidency has not lacked for crises. But the two that have dominated this week -- a spreading environmental...
Seg#3: We would be better off in USA had Obama failed .!.
Smartest thing Obama could have done when the rig blew up would have been to call Sarah Palin and her husband for their extensive knowledge and experience. All Obama does is go out and talk about what could be if Big Gov't was even bigger.
First, whatever happens, read Teleprompter to demonize someone. Then, propose a government solution. Same with unemployment. Obama loves to say we are in Recovery and he brought us back from the Brink. Problem with that is that there is no Recovery; and there was no Brink. Wherever we look in the world we can see our own future.
We can see our future in Greece, Arizona, California, New Orleans. In the real world he has killed jobs and bankrupted the country for generations. That is why I wanted him to fail (in his Agenda). It was all about advancing his ideology. Even now, he is not concerned about jobs. The Adm does nothing to create jobs.
Another illustration is legislation for immigration. Obama couldn't wait to jump on Arizona. He lied about them. He looks at people of color as being the true owners of stolen wealth around the world. So the border will remain porous and ineffective, but he will talk against those solving the problem. "Understand why they cross the border because it is the fault of USA."
We are getting information from the NYC terrorist. ((Clip: It bothers me about Rush Limbaugh; after 9/11 we all came together. I wish we could talk about the plots we have stopped.)) Senator Leahy, have you no shame? All you and Democrats did was try to lose the war in Iraq.
Had Obama failed in his Agenda, we would not be where we are now.
They always mention the NYC bomber was an amateur. ((Reading: He flew 13 times; he was on the no-fly list; he paid cash for a one-way ticket; no luggage.)) So when his bomb was first discovered, we were told, "Don't worry; he is an amateur." This amateur drove an SUV into Time Square, planted the bomb, left undetected, and almost flew away.
>>> If this guy was the amateur, what does that make
>>>> Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano?
Amateur jihadists are outsmarting the Administration.
Rush says Adm people are patting themselves on the back.
Seg#4: We may shut down ourselves but others continue Gulf drilling
The bomber got five months in bomb-making training; how much training does Janet Napolitano claim?
Man in Colorado wants to meditate and close the oil rig valve:
Caller-Gulf: They make the case for on-land drilling.
Their ultimate objective is to shut down all oil drilling. Mexicans, Russians, Cuba and Venezuela (paid for by Obama and our taxes) continue drilling.
>>> The only oil drilling we are shutting down is USA drilling.
We are paying Brazil $10billion to drill off the coast of Brazil, Rush adds.
Seg#5: So what is Obama doing with nuclear power? Nothing!
> > > I know it would take years but we could start now.
Seg#6: Rush explains what he has learned in 20 yrs about happiness
(Theme Music) Interesting eMail coming in. I can be tough on male people in leadership, but not the women, exception: Hillary Rodham. If brains were knitting Janet Napolitano couldn't knit leggings, an eMail says.
One eMail asks how do I deal with distracters. A friend sends an eMail that is concerned that I am lumped in with kooks in media. I wrote back to explain my objective: prepare and do the absolute best radio show on that day.
Better than, "Lord, I thank Thee for my enemies" is this
"A man is defined by the nature of his enemies." Who said that?
Look at them: the Clintons; Obama; Robert Gibbs. State Media.
It took me a while to learn it is not personal. They cannot beat us on ideas and principles, so they attack character. Nobody supports what Obama is doing as he acts the role of a Chicago thug. I continue doing what I want to do; we increase in audience and revenue every year.
Get to the point where your happiness depend not on other people. Be free! All you have to rely on is to be true to yourself. Others wish they could do what you do best, and they can't. Why be distracted by them?
"I feel weak and helpless; and Liberals drain my confidence", the eMail writer says. No Liberal is worth that. Knowledge, experience, and core beliefs and values bring confidence. Learn why you are a Conservative and be the go-to guy. [Sign up at AskHeritage.org]
I wish I would have learned this 40 years ago, but learned in the last 20. I had been in NYC for four years, called every name in the book. "You can't let that stand." So you respond to the person in Oshkosh and they think they have scored. Pay attention and you are distracted. No one told me how to deal with it.
I was invited to go to the fashionable "Club 21" and bring my book for staff. A man of the cloth was laughing, so happy; and said Reagan just laughed at them. I hadn't said a word. That is what I do now. Knowledge gives you the confidence of your beliefs and no one can then talk you out of them.
Get over the way we were all raised: that everyone is probably better than you. "Those kids are behaving better; why don't you behave like them?" People you don't know could not do what you do in a lifetime, so don't be distracted with their criticism. I could never live as they do in Hollywood; they can turn on you.
It's very simple: Obama thinks I am an enemy? Makes me very proud.
>>> [Rush says his parents would not believe his Odyssey.]
Seg#7: Most approve of enforcing the border and laws in Arizona
It's a James Bond quote also, "You are judged by the strength of your enemies." And Ronald Reagan said, "Do not be afraid to see what (who) you are."
Farewell Address: www.ronaldreagan.com/sp_21.html
Polls show that GOP may rise with actions in Arizona. It is hurting Democrats. Forget about getting the Illegal vote. 60% say it is about 'right' and it is a poison pill for Democrats. ((Parody Singing: Democrats believe in Robin Hood and elections. Does anybody know how the game is played? Arizona, cut out your prideful ways. This is not the way and your belief in the Constitution is quaint. Do it my way, cut out your Rambo ways. You undercut Fairness and the American way. You can be like San Francisco, they always work for less pay. I will send the entire federal gov't to make sure. Arizona, we need to get bricks laid. Do it my way. Etc.)) Paul Shanklin sings Mark Lindsay tune, lead singer for Paul Revere and the Raiders.
> As I predicted, CNN says, "Goodbye Stimulus; Hello state budget cuts".
Seg#8: Washington Post is selling their magazine, Newsweek
Jonathan Alter works for Newsweek. W-Post explores the sale of Newsweek and they did not consult Obama, did they? He gave us the term 'tea-baggers'. Tea Party people loath the term, knowing they are being mocked [with an obscenity.]
There are 32 Black candidates seeking election and reelection that want the support of Tea Party Movement. Some writers are shocked. Independents are fleeing the Democrat Party in droves. David Obey dropping out is a big signal. He is quitting because his reelection prospects are slim-to-none.
Caller: Republicans left us. Tea Party is not just Republican. We will not vote for them if they do not recognize the Conservative principles. Most of us came out of the Conservative Wing of the Democratic Party. We have three generations of voters and we will be noticed in the next election.
The president of the United States impugns them. Theirs is an administration of grievance and punishment.
>>> They do not know what awaits them in November.
Seg#9: Does the narcissist have the interest of others at heart?
From WFAA.com a Dallas station and Reuters. One in three workers in Greece works for government, unwilling to give back anything they earn. They don't have any money in Europe to support Greece. In USA, the M-1 money supply is no where near the money we actually have in this country. $14.6trillion is the (GDP) gross national product but we don't have it on hand.
An oil refinery is on fire in San Antonio.
Caller-Cape_Cod: Self respect is needed in leadership. Our leader needs to put America first.
Legislators in both parties put America second to get votes. There is a huge difference in Obama and his narcissism which is not proper self-esteem. A narcissist has zero humility. They think they are smarter and superior. I don't think that. Clint Eastwood won in a gunfight and said, "You have to know your limitations." Put it all in context: never give up but know limitations. The narcissist thinks he has none.
>>> If people think that of me I might let it offend me for about 5sec.
Segment#10: Your critics can bring out the best in you.
A TX 18-wheeler truck exploded as it was placed on a loading track.
>>> That's why you say, "Thank You, Lord, for my enemies."
Seg#11: Will Liberals try to win public opinion by telling the truth?
(Music) ELRushbo@EIBnet.com write in, nice things being said. Thanks for complements on my monologues. One more thing: nothing is as it seems to you on the outside. Same with me looking at other great ones.
In dinner and golf meetings with Liberal friends, they try to goad me and I just sit back and smile, or ask them questions for humor. Even my staff gives me grief during a great monologue. No one but kings can demand respect they don't deserve. [Rush may be repeating himself because Armed Forces Radio get only one hour.] ((Montage: Rush Limbaugh suggested Obama blew up the oil rig. It is time for the tin foil hat for Limbaugh.)) Never mind that I said not one word like that. They did not bother to check my website or call.
All I said was, "Whoa, Obama is sending swat teams down, why?"
((Clip: 95% of early action could have captured the spill. NYTimes and Rush Limbaugh noted this.)) Am I on the same page as The New York Times? I may have to reexamine. The timeline is not favorable to the Bamster, NYTimes noted.
Stimulus funds have run out for states and they find themselves short. ((Reading: Significant cutbacks to services, like schools and health.)) It could have happened a year ago and only delayed for a year. The private sector has not grown; and the public sector lives off the private sector. Those in public service are paid two times those in private industry. This cannot go on.
There is a petition to hold BP responsible. So Democrats are fund-raising off the disaster and do not one thing. From the eMail ((Reading: The Obama Adm is keeping a boot on the throat of BP; but Rush Limbaugh has the view that the sea water will take care of it on its own.)) I never said that but I said instead that the ocean floor has leakage itself of equal amount and takes care of it.
Snerdley says kids have been brainwashed for decades. They think oil is manmade. The oil companies want to kill their customers. This is what kids have been taught. Both oil and water were here before we were. Oil is as much as Nature as mosquitoes. Man is said to be an enemy of Earth because we found Oil.
So anyway, Leftist Democrats are fundraising [with lies]. Reagan got lied about; Churchill got lied about; Jesus also. Who is doing the lying? These are desperate pipsqueaks. I do this show for you – not for them.
I'm not worried they will change your minds about me. You know.
>>> The fact that they have to lie to make a point is also a compliment.
Seg#12: Rush Limbaugh knows that Earth is protected by God
As you know, I own a home on the east coast by Miami Beach. Most of talking heads don't. Who are they to judge what I say about the oil slick? I look at the good in everything that happens. Staff is laughing, Dawn and Snerdley are laughing that I don't say [turtles gone; lights can be on.] And at some point the beach will fix itself. My taxes pay for sand to be dumped on every year.
Would I blame Obama if he did nothing? I wouldn't blame BP for doing nothing.
Riots in Greece have left three dead as they run into banks. Who has been creating anger against bankers? Now three bankers are dead.
Caller: "Would I change myself to please distracters?" I ask and evaluate.
If no benefit, it bounces off your armor. Well said.
There is a lesson to learn with David Obey dropping out. Look at why: who is the candidate beating him?
>>> It's not a 'Moderate' but a solid Conservative.
Seg#13: Their Liberal cowardice hides behind the cloak of PC
"Don't pay any attention to the critics. Don't even ignore them", Said MGM Goldman. How many of you walk into a room and say, "What do they think of my weight or hair." Snerdley, do you walk into a room, "What do I think of these people." Takes a while to get to [that viewpoint].
David Obey is being out-polled by a strong Conservative Republican.
Sean Duffy: http://theundergroundconservative.wordpress.com/
Some Republicans want to be 'inclusive' but it is no different than losing the vote in the last election over Amnesty. Republicans need to stand up!
I thought ESPN was supposed to be clear of politics. Now we have shirts in the NBA, "Los Suns" ((Clip: Our owner asked if we had any problem wearing the shirts. We have to fix what is wrong in society.)) Ozzie Guillen (mgr of Chicago White Sox) says he will not go to the all-star baseball game is held in AZ. OK, don't go!
It is cowardice disguised in PC; it is pure Liberal ideology. Just say that; don't give us this "holier-than-thou" garbage. 'We have to wear these Los Suns shirts because everyone is racist and we have to battle it.'
>>> >> > >> >>> Sorry! That just doesn't fly.
Seg#14: Did you remember and prepare for this holiday weekend?
[Ad for giant strawberries for your loved ones. Order year-round.]
Having worked in PR for St Louis baseball, I thought sports were not to be politicized. Now, everyone must think the same thing?
Caller: Give amnesty and free tickets and beer to fans.
You left out free parking. Good idea for them.
CO2 has almost nothing to do with Global Warming. See Dr Spencer's book.
http://www.drroyspencer.com/ His book via Amazon: Climate Confusion: How Global Warming Hysteria Leads to Bad Science, Pandering Politicians and Misguided Policies that Hurt the Poor
Caller: I'm a Black Conservative and support Tea Party Movement.
They bend over backward for the NYC clown bomber; but they demonize Conservatives.
>>> Liberal Democrats believe we are their only real enemies.
Seg#15: Gen Patton, "If everyone says the same thing,
>>> it means that no one is thinking." That's Liberals.
Close: Liberals love 'diversity' as long as you support them.

From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Freefall"
This week, the US Senate will debate and vote on amendments to Chris Dodd's financial reform bill. Like all other legislation Democrats call "reform," it's just another power grab.
But a liberal coalition of Senators -- led by Ted Kaufman, Delaware's unelected replacement for Joe Biden -- say the Dodd bill doesn't go far enough, so they're working on amendments to actually break up the top six American banks. Their targets are: Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, Morgan Stanley, and Citigroup.
In a recent interview, Senator Kaufman complained that these financial institutions are too big to manage and regulate. The Kaufman coalition's proposals would give the banks three or four years to "wind themselves down."
As bad as the Dodd bill is without amendments, this push from Senate liberals is so bad it has even taken the White House by surprise, according to AP. Obama economic advisor Larry Summers says that breaking up the banks would hurt American competitiveness, as well as banks' ability to service large companies. Because individual banks would be less diversified, a breakup would also increase bank failures, but none of these arguments resonate with Senate liberals -- they don't care.
Today, every business sector is, in one way or another, under assault by a government that's no longer interested in protecting their rights or protecting our economy, but instead is fully committed to their destruction. With Democrats in charge, America is no longer headed toward a "slippery slope" -- we're in freefall.

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"Guess what? Faisal Shahzad is a registered Democrat. I wonder if his SUV had an Obama sticker on it."
"Mayor Bloomberg, you're an absolute blithering, embarrassing idiot. If you're going to try to relate this to modern politics, tell us that this Muslim from Pakistan is upset over the Arizona law -- health care is yesterday's news."
"Wouldn't it be nice if we had our 'boot on the throat' of Muslim extremists, just like we have our boot on BP, a company that is attempting to produce energy for us to improve our lifestyle and our economic output and our standard of living?"
"If you see something, say something -- unless you see it in Arizona. Then you shut up."
"So here's Obama praising ordinary citizens for reporting suspicious activity to the authorities, but what if the T-shirt vendor guy had been wrong? Would the T-shirt vendor guy then be facing charges of profiling, as in a hate crime?"
"As far as this regime is concerned, for every problem, there is not a solution, but there is a villain -- unless Muslim terrorists are involved."
"I'll bet the media jumps on this mortgage angle and tries to justify Shahzad's radicalism because he was ruined by Bush housing. In fact, I'll bet you they'll say this poor guy was tricked into a mortgage he couldn't afford. In fact, I'll bet you I could even make myself feel sorry for him before this show is over."
"Faisal Shahzad had ties with militants. He was at a training camp. Now, I did not know that the Taliban had training camps for Americans who have been foreclosed on -- can you believe that?"
"Would somebody explain to me why Obama has a reputation for competence when he's never done anything? The closest experience he has to this oil rig is Bill Ayers, because his buddy, Bill Ayers, knows how to blow things up!"
"Twenty-one years and it never stops. They never debate me on what I actually say. They have to lie about things I didn't say to try and discredit me."www.RushLimbaugh.com [Subscribers get other half of gem quotes]
Quotable quotes from Fox News and talk radio:
"There is reasonable responsibility to turn [Jihadist citizens] over to a military justice system because it is not traditional war. They are prisoners of war. Bottom line: I don't believe [bomber] is entitled to Miranda rights." Senator Lieberman on FNC.

A nationwide general strike paralyzed Greece on Wednesday as protests against the government's recently announced austerity measures turned violent, with an apparent firebomb attack on a central Athens bank killing three people.
Faisal Shahzad, pulled from a jetliner just before it was to take off for Dubai, admitted that he tried to detonate a car bomb in Times Square after learning how to build bombs in a terrorist training camp in Pakistan. The U.S. tightened no-fly procedures.

In Greece, Communists are leading demonstrations and a general strike against austerity measures that are to be imposed as a condition of the European Community (in particular, Germany) bailing out that nation. Several people have been killed in the riots. This Communist banner was hung below the Parthenon:
~~~ [Picture] ~~~
In Marxist theory, the Communist Party represented the interests of productive workers, the value of whose labor is expropriated by others. That was wrong, but at least it had a certain coherence. Greek Communists (and more generally, 21st century socialists) stand for something quite different: the "right" to be supported by the labor of others (in the Greek case, Germans); the "right" to be a sponge, forever; the "right" to be an exploiter. It would be hard to think of a less attractive political program.
By Michelle Malkin • May 5, 2010 02:32 AM
America's homeland security amnesia never ceases to amaze. In the aftermath of the botched Times Square terror attack over the weekend, Pakistani-born bombing suspect Faisal Shahzad's U.S. citizenship status caused a bit of shock and awe. The Atlantic magazine writer Jeffrey Goldberg's response was typical: "I am struck by the fact that he is a naturalized American citizen, not a recent or temporary visitor." Well, wake up and smell the deadly deception.
Shahzad's path to American citizenship — he reportedly married an American woman, Huma Mian, in 2008 after spending a decade in the country on foreign student and employment visas — is a tried-and-true terror formula. Jihadists have been gaming the sham marriage racket with impunity for years. And immigration benefit fraud has provided invaluable cover and aid for U.S.-based Islamic plotters, including many other operatives planning attacks on New York City. As I've reported previously:
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
Related: Sen. Joe Lieberman proposes stripping citizenship from Americans who join foreign terrorist organizations:
Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) is planning to introduce a bill that would allow the government to take away citizenship from Americans who join foreign terrorist organizations.
The proposal would amend current law that bars American citizens from fighting for foreign armies at the price of losing their citizenship.
"I think it's time for us to look at whether we want to amend that law to apply it to American citizens who choose to become affiliated with foreign terrorist organizations, whether they should not also be deprived automatically of their citizenship and therefore be deprived of rights that come with that citizenship when they are apprehended and charged with a terrorist act," Lieberman, who helms the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said on Fox News.
But perhaps DHS and the State Department should concentrate on the homeland security front door — making sure jihadis don't get citizenship and other immigration/entrance benefits in the first place — instead of waiting to deal with it on the back end after the fact.
