From "Rush Gem Quotes" via web:
"I like this idea: Turn Julian Assange over to the ChiComs and tell them he's part of Falun Gong." [Rush says they would then put him to hard labor.]
"I don't know how you feel, but I just spent four absolutely wonderful, fabulous days at what I call pre-Obama America. From Wednesday night until about nine o'clock last night, I thought not one thought of Barack Obama -- and it was bliss!"
"Obama busted his lip out there playing basketball? Did his teleprompter say ouch?"
"So I'm sitting here watching Hillary remarking on the theft of our top secret documents, and is it just me, or is she starting to look more and more like Mao Tse-tung? Or is it her wardrobe? I can't tell."
"Roger Ailes knows where Julian Assange is, [per interview]. Give Ailes the order, and there is no Assange, I guarantee you -- and there will be no fingerprints."
"There have been eight attempted terror attacks on US soil since Obama has been president. Now, imagine what the number would be if Obama hadn't improved our relations with the Muslim world."
"One more little note here to Steve Johnson, the Buffalo Bills wide receiver: Steve, I love you, man, but you don't go blaming God when you fail at a hail Mary pass -- that's just not good politics."
"I hate the word 'Wiki'; it does not sound like a manly word. 'Wiki'... I think of candles."
"I don't know, folks. It just wouldn't feel like Christmas without an attempted Muslim bombing."
"Now we're back, Obama's front and center, and everything sucks again. So we have a major psychological challenge to deal with each and every day, but who better than I, El Rushbo, to deal with it and lead you through it?"
"Frankly, the WikiLeaks guy bugs me because he looks like a waif, like he ought to be in a Peter Pan stage play, rather than on the world stage. He looks like a little wuss."
"Let me ask you this. Does Jesse Jackson want an end to racial problems in America? Well, no, of course not, because he'd be out of business. So do you think the Arabs really want peace in the Middle East?"
"Profiling is not identity politics, it's criminal intelligence, and political correctness is destroying us."
"So we have all this stuff going on in the world, and Obama is worried about whether his aide is eating a salad. If you don't think Michelle is running this show, folks... Ha-ha! You got another thing coming!"
"What's worse, that the New York Times leaked of all this WikiLeaks stuff, or the hopelessly banal, introspective blather they wrote about why they released the stuff?"
"Before I go any further today, I want to thank myself. I want to thank myself for hosting this show on tape on Thanksgiving Day, and I want to thank myself for hosting this show last Friday."
"Everybody's worried that this WikiLeaks stuff is going to damage US credibility. Well, isn't that the idea? Isn't that the point of this administration? Isn't that the exact kind of thing Obama's been looking to do?"
"So Obama is going to ask for a federal pay freeze for a two whole years and save $2 billion? I mean, big whoop."
"Can you imagine if this WikiLeaks guy offered illegal music for download? Why, we would be jumping into gear so fast to get this guy behind bars, he wouldn't know what hit him!"
"See, it always comes back to bite you: when you kick people off their land, they're eventually going to figure out a way to flood your state with illegal products."
"There's nobody that pays attention better than I do to the stuff I pay attention to. Many people wish I'd pay more attention to them than I do, but when I start paying attention to stuff, there is nobody better."
"From TheHill.com: 'Obama hits the court again, this time playing with his two daughters.' He-he-he-he-he! They're not big enough to elbow him in the lip accidentally."
"Do you think liberals in this country worry about women in oppressed countries? Give me one bit of evidence. They don't even pretend that they do! When's the last time Gloria Steinem wrote a damn word about the burqa?"
"Now, back to the Christmas tree bomber... Did Mayor Bloomberg pipe up and say that the guy was just upset bout health care or something? Oh, he hasn't yet?"
"Now, if Janet Napolitano, Big Sis, can put her hands down our underwear at any airport in America she chooses, why can't she get her hands around the scrawny little neck of Julian Assange and all the other people at WikiLeaks?"
"Behind every debacle at a business you'll find a union leader."

From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Grow Up"
Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus told Americans who disagree with the new, intrusive TSA pat-downs to "grow up." The column was headlined: "Don't Touch My Junk? Grow up, America."
Now, Ms. High-and-Mighty Marcus writes: "The uproar over the new procedures is overblown and immature." Although she acknowledges the images from the new screening machines are "uncomfortably graphic," she describes government agents patting down your genitalia as a "marginal invasion of privacy", minor when compared to averting terrorist attacks. It's "childish" to protest this stuff, she says.
Ms. Marcus also claims to know that the "loudest howls of outrage emanate from those who would be quickest to blame the Obama [regime] for not doing enough to protect us if a bomber did slip through."
You see, for liberals, the right to "privacy" only exists when it comes to protecting abortions or politically correct diseases. Americans concerned about being treated like common criminals for merely wanting to fly from one destination to another, or concerned about government agents hunching over toddlers, examining their privates? They're stupid, they're childish, they're immature -- as are those who fear images of their naked bodies somehow getting leaked.
Our government, and liberal journalists like Ruth Marcus, apparently believe that "immature" Americans, rather than the terrorists who hate America, are more likely to blow up a plane. Liberals refuse to admit that those terrorists could be more readily identified by using profiles.
Really, Ms. Marcus. I mean, who is it here who needs to grow up? Do you even have any genitalia to touch? [[ED: Is Rush funny, or what?]]

Lee Smith reviews the stolen diplomatic cables disseminated by Julian Assange. Smith likens the cables to the Pentagon Papers, with a difference. The difference, according to Smith, is that while the Pentagon Papers substantially vindicated the American left, the Wikileaks cable dump vindicates the right. Here are the eight examples that Smith deems the most obvious from the documents that have so far appeared online:
1. While the Israelis are deeply concerned about Iran's march toward a nuclear program, it is in fact the Arabs who are begging the United States to "take out" Iranian installations through military force, with one United Arab Emirates official even proposing a ground invasion. Calling Iran "evil," King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia repeatedly urged the United States to "cut off the head of the snake" by attacking Iranian nuclear installations.
2. It is not just Israeli leaders who believe Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is reminiscent of Hitler; U.S. officials think so too, as do Arab leaders, who use the Hitler analogy to warn against the dangers of appeasing Iran.
3. North Korea, an isolated country that enjoys substantial diplomatic and economic backing from China, is supplying Iran with advanced ballistic missile systems that would allow an Iranian nuclear warhead to hit Tel Aviv--or Moscow--with a substantial degree of accuracy. Taken in concert with the North Korean-built nuclear reactor in Syria, it would appear that North Korea--acting with the knowledge and perhaps direct encouragement of China--is playing a significant and deliberate role in the proliferation of nuclear equipment and ballistic delivery systems in the Middle East.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~ [Five more points here] ~~~ ~~~ ~~~
Smith separately elaborates one point that we have made many times and that deserves to be italicized for emphasis:
What comes through most strongly from the Wikileaks documents...is that U.S. Middle East policy is premised on a web of self-justifying fictions that are flatly contradicted by the assessments of American diplomats and allies in the region. Starting with Bush's second term and continuing through the Obama Administration, Washington has ignored the strong and repeated pleas of its regional allies--from Jerusalem to Riyadh--to stop the Iranian nuclear program. Perhaps the most disturbing revelation in the documents is the extent to which both the Bush and Obama Administrations have concealed Iran's war against the United States and its allies in Iraq, Lebanon, Israel, and the Arab Gulf states, even as those same allies have been candid in their diplomatic exchanges with us. U.S. servicemen and -women are being dispatched to combat zones in Iraq and Afghanistan where they are fighting Iranian soldiers and assets in a regional war with the Islamic Republic that our officials dare not discuss, lest they have to do something about it.
I should add that the stolen cables are like the Pentagon Papers in a few respects other than the one that Smith cites. The dissemination of the cables probably violates the espionage laws of the United States. You can look it up.
In any event, please check out Smith's column.

Politics Daily executive editor Carl Cannon asks what made the would-be Portland bomber Mohamed Mohamud hate enough to attempt the mass murder of fellow Americans. It's a good question, and I'm glad Cannon is asking it, but his answer is, as you might expect, a little obscure.
Cannon provides only one explicit answer: "The geographical answer is Somalia..." Well, okay, but what is it about Somalia? You wouldn't know from Cannon's column that Mohamud immigrated to the Untied States at the age of five.
What is it about Somalia that produced Mohamud's murderous rage? Cannon observes: "[T]he FBI affidavit filed Friday pursuant to Mohamud's arrest quoted the suspect as telling an undercover agent that he had been committed to jihad since he was 15 years of age."
UPDATE: Why is it so hard to tell the truth? The answer leaves Mona Charen unbollixed: "The truth is that while the vast majority of Muslims are peaceful and law-abiding, there is a powerful strain within the religion that encourages murder and mayhem. Muslims, sooner or later, must deal with this, along with the rest of the world."
Just as Cannon is getting warm, he moves on and slides into imbecility. Cannon approvingly quotes Shahriar Ahmed of the Bilal Mosque in Beaverton. "He's not alone," Ahmed says of Mohamud. You can say that again.
But wait! According to Ahmed, Mohamud has even more company than you might think: "[T]hat is the exact type of mentality that we are trying to stand against - Christian, Muslim, Jew and reasonable people - globally." Thanks, but no thanks.
Let us indeed take a stand. Let us take a stand against the mentality that inhibits us from talking seriously about the roots of Mohamud's hate.

By Michelle Malkin • November 30, 2010 08:23 AMIt's no surprise to long-time readers of this blog that the pro-illegal immigration Wall Street Journal has come out in favor of the DREAM Act bailout.
The WSJ editorial page has long crusaded for de facto and de jure amnesty — and I've exposed its deceptive campaigning on behalf of illegal aliensfor years. (See my deconstruction of a demagogic WSJ editorial page meeting attacking enforcement-first conservatives during the Bush shamnesty debacle.)
24ahead.com does a terrific job dismantling the latest DREAM Act propaganda from the WSJ, which backs the latest massive amnesty entitlement program and Democrat voter recruitment drive masquerading as an education bill:
Not only does the Wall Street Journal endorse a bill that would harm American citizens, they also mislead about the bill:
Restrictionists dismiss the Dream Act as an amnesty that rewards people who entered the country illegally. But the bill targets individuals brought here by their parents as children. What is to be gained by holding otherwise law-abiding young people, who had no say in coming to this country, responsible for the illegal actions of others? The Dream Act also makes legal status contingent on school achievement and military service, the type of behavior that ought to be encouraged and rewarded.
1. Those covered have to be "younger than 16 years of age on the date the alien initially entered the United States", but there's nothing in the bill requiring them to prove that they were brought here by their parents; older children do occasionally cross the border alone.
2. The DREAM Act grants "conditional permanent resident status" – lasting six years – and the minimum requirements are to have "earned a high school diploma or obtained a general education development certificate in the United States". Not to diminish those who have GEDs, but is that what most people have in mind when they hear the phrase "school achievement"?
3. Many things would be gained from not passing the DREAM Act. If we could encourage those illegal aliens to return home they could help their own countries. The alternative the WSJ wants would continue braindraining Mexico and other sending countries. We'd also free up education slots and possibly discounts for American citizens, something that's vitally important due to cutbacks in community college budgets that cause many Americans not to be able to obtain retraining. ~~~ ~~~ [it continues] ~~~ ~~~
Floor update: Weaker Pelosi had scheduled a floor vote yesterday but postponed it for later this week or next. Translation: Your calls are working. Keep it up.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
On a related note, I'm in Austin, Texas today for a YAF speech. UT-Austin illegal alien students are waging a hunger strike here and on several other campuses (15 were arrested in San Antonio) and they plan to attend the event tonight. Bring it on.
Blogger Robin Juhl snapped photos of the San Antonio shamnesty protest at GOP Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison's office. See here. Hutchison remains opposed to the DREAM Act. For now. Be sure to phone her and buck her up.
Desperate Libs Ratchet Up Extremist Label
With the advent of the tea party movement and President Obama's recent "shellacking," the left's long-established effort to marginalize mainstream conservative Americans as fringe extremists has reached a new stage of desperation.
For at least the past half-century, the dominant media culture has portrayed minority liberalism as mainstream and conservatives as shrill malcontents. From the time I started paying attention to politics as a young kid, liberals have been demonizing conservatives as reactionary throwback Neanderthal knuckle-dragging, warmongering extremists.
I'll never forget the "Daisy" ad from the LBJ presidential campaign, which featured a little girl picking petals from a daisy in a field as an ominous countdown from "10" led into footage of a nuclear explosion. The voice of LBJ then interceded with "These are the stakes, to make a world in which all of God's children can live or to go into the dark. We must either love each other, or we must die."
The unmistakable message was that Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater could not be trusted with his finger on the nuclear button. The ad resonated because the liberal media had already laid the foundation that conservative ideas were not just antiquated and obsolete but also dangerous.
Liberals similarly depicted Ronald Reagan as a bellicose buffoon itching to light up Moscow with his "Star Wars" nuclear toys; never mind that "Star Wars" was the left's pejorative shorthand for Reagan's proposed Strategic Defense Initiative, which was, as its title indicated, a defense system.
