Your Rush Limbaugh Echo for Monday, 8/16/10
Student NOTES from Institute freshmen, back in CA
Opening: How can Meltdown come to White House?
Seg#1: Obama is now for Founding Fathers and American greatness?
They are not in total meltdown—they are hitting Home Runs, Snerdley. If people wanted to build a Walmart by Ground Zero then the Adm would be in an uproar about destroying community. There are 30 mosques in NYC. What about property rights?
Robert Gibbs wants out in 2011. Also Defense Sec Gates. Obama might have to go so far as getting Cindy Sheehan to take the gig. Let's suggest we build a Japanese Shinto worship center next to Pearl Harbor. Why stop at the WTC in NYC.
Just hilarious in Drive-by Media. They are in panic: "Obama saying he supports the mosque is not political." Hamas agrees with Obama on building the mosque. "GOP takes harsher stand against Jihad" and "GOP keeps Mosque Flap alive."
W-Post "Backing Muslim Right To Build Mosque Is Not An Endorsement" and that it takes the BP Gulf spill off the headlines. Frenzy over his mosque comment takes focus away from Obama saying the Gulf is open, they say.
((Clip-megaphone: The rest of the world hears you; and the people that knocked these buildings down will hear from all of us soon.)) That was Bush in 2001.
((Clip-Obama: That includes the right to build a place of worship on private property. They will not be treated differently.)) Let's put a Nativity Scene on the White House grounds this holiday season and see what happens.
Why not put it further away. There is no doubt what this is about.
The same Imam has a mosque 12 blocks away. Why this one? ((Clip-Obama: We treat everybody equal, according to the law. I will not comment on the wisdom of putting a mosque there. Stay focused on our values.)) Now he cares about the founding.
Obama hasn't cared about the Founding up until now: Founding Values; Freedom and Equality. ((Clip-Gibbs: It is for local NYC to decide. We are not at war with a religion but with an idea that has corrupted a religion.)) That was Aug 3rd. Fascinating how it illustrates the American Left.
Anything that supports their belief that America is bad, they are all for it: "What a courageous move by Obama", they he walked it back, "Oh, no. Don't step back."
>>> Leftist-Progressives in America were all for Obama's first stance.
Seg#2: Barack 'Hoover' Obama is on the same page as Hamas
It was not NY that was attacked, it was America: it is not a local NYC issue! [Rush announces the next iPad winner: see www.RushLimbaugh.com ] 376,000 have clicked on www.Facebook.com/RushLimbaugh to see wedding pictures.
At Pier 20 in NYC they did want to put a Super Walmart and the 'Community' went beserch. Remember Obama pressuring Benjamin Netanyahu to stop building houses on their own property because some might find it offensive.
Ground Zero is a sacred place and victims hailed from many states.
>>> It is clear what is going on here — and who Obama is.
Seg#3: Do the same people that perpetrated WTC bombing send $$ ?
Some think it important that part of the WTC hit where the mosque would be built. ((Reading: some of landing gear crashed through the roof of that building.)) NYTimes July 13 also has a story with Rick Lazio opposing the mosque.
Everyone know about the 'right' but what is the real reason and the point? America has to make amends? ((Reading: It is a provocation: "Their Jihad, not my Jihad" author writes about it. When you understand, we wonder why they don't build a monument to those who died. NYC has 30 mosques already. The proposal is brazen. Where is the funding coming from? Saudi Arabia? He should spend his $100million for Muslims dying in Darfur. Where is the concern for fellow citizens? Isn't it like planting a bomb to sooth feelings?)) That is a couple of Muslims writing in Canada.
Cofounder of Hamas says they have to build everywhere. The numbers vary, 30, 50, but there are a lot of mosques in New York City. How easy is it to get a synagogue up in Saudi Arabia?
((Reading on: Islam controls every aspect of our lives.)) Just like Hamas, Obama feels this mosque can go in but not Israel building housing.
I have young relatives and friends that are perplexed about Obama.
((Clip: We have to build a holy place everywhere. We are people.)) Mahmoud al-Zahar is cofounder of Hamas.
>>> Hamas cofounder is in total agreement with B.H.Obama.
Seg#4: We are less respected when we surrender in weakness
NYPD says they had 20 mosques in Queens; 27 in Brooklyn; etc. That was 20 years ago. Some people put a mosque in their place of residence. There is no shortage.
Caller: This is a chance to show our government better.
Wait a moment; militant Jihad is not a government. We are not showing anybody anything. Obama has already apologized around the world and they still hate us.
Caller-still: We have a mosque in the Pentagon where we were attacked.
It is a prayer room, not a mosque. Let me ask you a question: why are you so insistent this happens? [Show who we are]
>>> All it does is send a message to Jihadists that we surrender.
Seg#5: There is no Mosque in the Pentagon! It is a room to pray.
Seg#6: Do not accept the Obama Adm and State-Run-Media spin.
(Theme Music) One more 'mosque' comment, not letting Obama get a pass. We need some translators. Clearly, American Left and even 'Ruling-Class' Republicans don't get it. Supporting the Ground Zero mosque presupposes that America got want it deserved with chickens coming home to roost.
There is a new book out: Monica Lewinsky had a crush on Stephonopholis and wouldn't leave him alone.
"Why Do They Hate Us So Much?" was a panel. Reach out with a mosque? 'Optics' is the popular word today. The infidel is too gullible to see what it represents.
Mort Zuckerman writes on "The End of American Optimism". It is interesting to see what he considers 'optimism'. ((Reading: We had Stimulus; weatherized homes; Volt; yet the Recovery remains feeble.)) Optimistic stuff didn't work? ((Reading on: Double-dip deflation; we need a million jobs back. Are we at the end of post-war growth? Nothing is working as before.)) Really? Did massive government porkulus spending ever work?
Once again it is up to me to define terms. "New Normal" means the salad days are over. Don't expect to get a job in the next eight years, the new normal. What do you think, Dawn? Snerdley? What is the "New Normal". It is just a term to distance Obama from anything he has done, "Obama-nomics". He has only so much he can work with, not his fault.
>>> "New Normal" is just defining the Economy down. It is just their excuse and State Media giving Obama a pass. It is 'Optics' on how it looks. Fools that need to be cast away are those that recommended Stimuli.
>>> Get used to it: This is the new America-in-decline. Keynesian Theory never worked. 1954 was how long it took to come out of 1929 stock market prices. Now, if you are not happy, 'tough toenails'.
>>> "New Normal" means accepting decline of a great America.
Do not accept the Obama Adm and State-Run-Media spin.
Seg#7: Where and how do we get pre-Obama 'normal' back?
Let me define "New Normal" further: a million dollar yacht for JFKerry; Algore's mansion; Spain vacations for Moochelle and her daughter. But not any of that for you: suck it up and be quiet. Answer back at the ballot box.
Where do we get our "Olde Normal" back?
Harry Dingy Reid said "This War is Lost" even as your young military were on the battle field. They sue Arizona for defending themselves. They build a most by Ground Zero and then have the gall to say decline is the new normal.
Notice all the perversion and corruption they say, "This is what USA is about". Arguably, you could say: "New Normal" is anti-American. [Rush talks about Hollywierd possiblities.] National Review Online (The Corner) reports that Stimulus $$ goes unspent. Only 8.4% in one category has been spent (weatherization program). What a scam! Unions prevent spending the money.
>>> Underneath every pile of crap you will find a union leader.
Seg#8: Is this 'mosque-comment' the same as LBJ losing Cronkite?
LBJ lost Walter Cronkite and said it was at that point he lost the Vietnam War. Has this been the moment that Obama loses over the WTC mosque?
Caller: Obama didn't even mention VJ-day, victory over Japan; just mosque;
Understand that Obama is uncomfortable with 'Victory'.
Caller-Weatherization-Contractor: Gov't guide is a joke.
Let me ask you, "can't-give-your-name" what are you weatherizing? [homes to bring down electric bill, no air through their home.] It will take decades to recoop savings.
This is the tip-of-the-iceberg. Wait for Obamacare to come in. ((Reading: May have to slash food stamps to pay for Moochelle Obama "Let's Move" initiative to reduce obesity in children. $26billion signed last week. Party leaders raided food stamps to pay for the new program.)) By cutting the food stamp we take food away from fat people so Moochelle Obama can run around and tell you what to eat.
>>> Income-and-Benefits leader doesn't like it.
Seg#9: Thomas Paine was the 'Rush Limbaugh of the Future'
We have 10,000,000 hits at www.Facebook.com/RushLimbaugh (photos).
Battle over the mosque at Ground Zero distracts from another controversy: St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Catholic Church was also destroyed. ((Reading: Trouble immerged with announcement. Port authorities wanted them to cut back the height for the dome. 16 months later they still don't have approval.)) Can't we reach out to them?
Caller: You are the Thomas Paine of today.
They told Thomas Paine he was the 'Rush Limbaugh of the Future'.
Caller: There is a contract between the governed and those elected. In mosques they betray their religion and use recruit for militant jihad. I'm a Christian woman and I am not allowed to attend in the mosques.
>>> Well, you can if you go to the top floor and hide behind a pillar.
Segment#10: Women pray in separate mosque rooms, unseen.
>>> I think that is tolerant from NY Feminists wanting the mosque.
Seg#11: Name of the proposed 'in-your-eye' mosque is Cardova Ctr
(Music) If they build the Ground Zero Cardoba Center mosque, why not hold the trial of the Sheik there? Pick the jury from the Muslims that attend.
Obamaville recovery is covered in Leftist rag, UK The Guardian. ((Reading: Keep a grasp on normalcy.)) They don't even call it 'stealing'. I don't think Democrats have the slightest idea what will come to them in November.
Nobody but Bob Novak and I thought Republicans would take back the House. Now, "You guys won't be shocked because you know the lose you will suffer." They know how mad you are. NYTimes Jeff Zelonie ((reading on: One thing is missing for Republicans, the element of surprise. Town Hall meetings showed the strength of Tea Parties.))
Remember how Bob Schieffer didn't know Justice Dpt didn't know charges against the New Black Panthers were dropped because State Media didn't report it? We rely on the watchdog in England, not America.
((Reading UK: He works hard, even in the best of times in NJ. And these are not the best of times. Economy is so bad in Camden that even the criminals are struggling.)) This article wants to arouse sympathy: Bailout for Gangs.
Don't Democrats know the real unemployment rate is about 15% ? ((Reading: America seems to be splitting down the center, have's and have-not's. It is the new Normalcy.)) Like defining deviancy as normal. ((Reading: Without jobs they are the '99-ers' since that is the number of weeks for benefits in unemployment.)) When the 99 weeks are up, "Hello, New Normal."
((Reading on: "Looking for a job was the hardest work I ever experienced", she said without a trace of a smile.)) Democrats have no clue what is coming.
>>> Their media is not telling them.
Segment#12: Tell it like it is when it comes to Jihad and the Koran
Reason UK Guardian did the '99-ers' story is Debbie Stabinow wants another 20 weeks of unemployment benefits, "Americans Want To Work Act". It's funny. They announced it on messNBC so you wouldn't know about it.
Caller-NewOrleans: Michelle Obama knows of suffering, not like Antonette.
Caller: They won't allow disclosure of mosque contributors.
Caller: It is a religion of world conquest (kill infidels) hiding behind Freedom.
You're saying 'califate' hides behind the burka. People don't want to believe this. There is not another religion like it in the modern world. Yes, reject the mosque.
>>> People know there is something that just doesn't match up.
Seg#13: Obamacare will come in for most, but not rich Democrats
Mind-over-Chatter. They are playing bumper music I don't remember. This is going to be the Mother-Of-All-Boondoggles. Local governments are looking at guides coming under Obamacare next month. "Where's my Healthcare? I heard it would be free? No? When will it be? You haven't been told?"
"Call me when it is free", they will say. ((Reading: Plug the gap.)) Do not doubt me when I tell you it will depend on where you live and your political party.
Fred Barron (Dallas Morning News: Big checks for Nancy Pelosi. Lisa Blue will have an extra reason to thank Pelosi. Her husband was dying of bone cancer. Barron funneled $$ to the mistress of John Edwards. Now his widow praises here dead husband. Mayo Clinic told him he had only days to live. They used Tisedry, approved only for Crones disease or multiple schorosis. They went to FDA to get a waiver but were denied. Pelosi got it done.)) Nancy Pelosi helped them avoid the Death Panels. It extended his life a week.
We were making 'death panel' jokes and were criticized for it. Now look.
Miss Praeger talks about 'unreasonable' rate increases mentioned in Obamacare. The secretary of Health and Human Services Sebalius determines. Nobody knows what [the legalese] means. States are waiting to find out.
September 16th (one month from today) and Sept 17th (Constitution Day) will be celebrated by Heritage Foundation in Washington DC, our capitol. The seminar is already sold out. George Will, Larry Arne, Michael Barone will be there.

Seg#14: Government and panels will determine 'reasonable' ?
'Reasonable' and 'Unreasonable' appear about 70 times in the text of Obamacare. We have all the pages. What is reasonable to Obama is 'insane' to the rest of us.
Caller: Every time we see Michelle & Obama in public, they eat ice cream.
And they are on a health and reduction kick? Liberal Ben & Jerry's.
Caller: Other nations do not let anyone walk in.
>>> We don't know which Obama-comment NYC Bloomberg comments on.
Segment#15: It wasn't 'nuanced', it was just muddied.
> NY Daily News says Obama is not worried about his mosque nuance.

From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Mosque"
For those of you concerned about the plans to erect a mosque at Ground Zero, I have even more news. You probably already heard that our state department is funding a "goodwill" trip for the Ground Zero mosque imam to promote a "greater understanding" of us in the Middle East. But apparently, the outreach program extends much further than that; a recent Washington Times editorial exposed other initiatives.
In April, our ambassador to Tanzania participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the refurbishment of a 12th-century mosque. Fitting, because the United States taxpayer provided funds to help the project along. It wasn't a one-off -- our government (well, Obama's state department) also provided financial assistance to save another mosque in Cairo. This mosque was named after a Muslim conqueror who defeated Christians in Egypt.
So let's review. The American left has spent the last 50 years in an unrelenting campaign to ban God from the public square. No prayers in schools or graduations, no silent moments, no Christmas displays, lawsuits to remove crosses from federal lands, and even throwing the Boy Scouts under the bus. God is forbidden. God is outlawed. God is an embarrassment. God is unwanted.
However... Islam's Allah is a different story. Critics of the Ground Zero mosque are accused of bigotry, and now our state department is funding mosque overseas while our own economy is in the tank. Obama the Most Merciful, praise his name, peace be upon him, is one of a kind.

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"Obama is doing to the US economy what Godzilla did to Tokyo -- stomping all over it."
"There was a study in USA Today that said that women would rather give up having sex than gain ten pounds. Now, this might be confusing to people in Rio Linda -- I mean, there might be too many words here."
"Obama wrote that Ramandan 'is a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country.' A list of those contributions does not accompany the president's statement, however."
"If Obama really wanted to support Gulf businesses that were hurt, he'd go talk to some oil workers, because they're the ones he has put out of business."
"If Alvin Greene's a Democrat involved with pornography, he's in the clear; that doesn't harm Democrats. Hell, if you're a Democrat, you can drive a woman off a bridge and if she dies, it doesn't hurt you."
"Speaking of Canada, there's some really, really cool spots in Canada to go to. What? Mr. Snerdley says there's just three."
"I take pride in being a nonconformist, and it's not all that hard to be a nonconformist -- aside from the guts it takes. You just have to have a little intelligence, guided by experience and common sense."
"There were no undersea plumes in the Gulf. It was light crude, and the stuff gets eaten alive by the ocean. It's called mother freaking nature."
"So Stephanopoulos and F. Chuck Todd, two pillars of the partisan political operative media, can't understand why various people don't like Obama and his policies. Hey, George and F. Chuck: Leave town for a minute -- you'll find that his policies are killing the country!"
"It's not easy to suffer fools, but today they're all just really getting to me."
"Bernard, how is your summer going in Barack Hoover Obama's America?"
"So there's a peeing contest out there among the left. You know, all of these stories are enough to make you just grab the PA and tell everybody where to go and then slide down the emergency chute."
"The name of my city is Literalville, and it makes a lot of people uncomfortable."
"There should not be a reason for Obama to go down and talk to businesses in the Gulf who have been hurt because there should not have been any businesses hurt. Businesses were 'harmed' purely because of the average, predictable hysteria that attaches itself to virtually every story."
"George W. Bush held an iftar dinner in 2001, so how's that for religious tolerance? And we see all the good that did."
"If I may get personal here for just a moment, one of the areas in which I find myself in the most controversy is simply when I state things that are not part of conventional wisdom."
"The BP oil leak is another example of why arrogance and incompetence is a dangerous combination. Folks, it's an outrage. Look at what's happened: an entire industry has been shut down on the basis of an unwarranted panic."
"What an idiot -- somebody gives you their platinum card, and you give it back?"
"Look at what has happened to the Gulf because of the regime. Jobs have been lost. Property values have plummeted. Tourism has been devastated. And these are the same people that we've put in charge of health care."
"Taxation, as far as liberal Democrats are concerned, is not about money -- it's about power."
"Story: 'Health officials say that poultry continues' -- what the hell? Has anybody died of salmonella out there last week? What's the point of this story? It's August, for crying out loud! People started using their grills in late May!"
"Try telling the truth about the environment for once, Sierra Club. Stop lying and maybe you'll get some people on your side."
"The Democrat Party is not America. The American left is not America. They are not the backbone of America. They are not the heart of America, and they never have been."
"Obama's going to need those illegal alien votes come 2012, and he's not going to wait for Congress to make that happen."
"Now, these engraved EIB iPads are going to become historic artifacts. Oh, yeah, no question -- there will be one of these in the Limbaugh Broadcast Museum."
"You can give a sports team everything you've got, and the only thing that will happen is the team might lose and disappoint you, but they'll never take half of what you own."
"The BP oil spill hysteria, as a lie, ladies and gentlemen, is child play compared to the hoax that is global warming. This hoax was nothing; it only lasted a couple of months. The global warming hoax has been ongoing for 25 years."
"You want a phrase? 'Obama lied, Gulf tourism died'."

Last week Fox News late-night host Greg Gutfeld formulated a creative approach to the Ground Zero mosque. He announced that he is trying to raise money to build a (non-alcoholic) bar catering to gay Islamic men by the proposed site of the mosque. Gutfeld says that the bar will feature 72 virgin drinks.
It's a funny idea, but Gutfeld advises: "This is not a joke. I've already spoken to a number of investors, who have pledged their support in this bipartisan bid for understanding and tolerance."
I think Gutfeld is kidding, trying to add a satirical note to the purported missions of "outreach" and "tolerance" behind the Ground Zero mosque project. Humor is Gutfeld's shtick. Indeed, comparing his proposed bar with the Ground Zero mosque, Gutfeld concluded with a flourish: "I hope that the mosque owners will be as open to the bar, as I am to the new mosque. After all, the belief driving them to open up their center near Ground Zero, is no different than mine. My place, however, will have better music."
The alleged seriousness of Gutfeld's project has not deterred injections of humor into proposed names for the bar. As one good idea begets another, "Turban Cowboy" and "Suspicious Packages" have been offered. Hot Air readers have offered several more, including "Submission." At Ace of Spades HQ, Jack M. has suggested "Outfidels!" Readers offer their own suggestions, including "Brokeback Mecca."
Gutfeld must be on to something. He has already managed to provoke this response to his venture from the crew behind the proposed Ground Zero mosque:
@greggutfeld You're free to open whatever you like. If you won't consider the sensibilities of Muslims, you're not going to build dialog
Yeah, how insensitive can you get. Given what he has accomplished so far, Gutfeld may yet provoke Barack Obama into condemning his offense against Muslim sensibilities.
JOHN adds: In related news, Hamas has endorsed the mosque, explaining that "we have to build everywhere."
"Islam is controlling every source of our life as regard to marriage, divorce, our commercial relationships," Zahar said.
And from Afghanistan, another reminder of the extraordinary brutality of Sharia.

Waving goodbye to property rights…
My column today raises bright red flags about a little-noticed, radical green land grab program underway at the White House called the "Great Outdoors Initiative." Keep in mind my previous coverage of Obama's War on the West and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar's job destruction. The War on the West is a war on property rights, a war on the economy, and a war on the American way of life. ~~~
