Your Rush Limbaugh Echo for Tuesday, 1/4/11
Student NOTES from Institute freshmen, not 'official'
Opening: NFL games and golf stories to share.
Segment#1: Lovable-Little-Fuzzball is attacked even in his absence
I could not believe they cancelled an NFL game because of snow; PA Gov Rendell sounded like me, a Conservative. There is so much to do [talk about] the challenge is to organize it all. For two weeks, I was like a typical Obama-supporter, not paying any attention to the news. Cookie has sound bytes about ME, while I was gone.
Everybody is watching football and that is big news. Then there are the massive bird and fish deaths. DbM is all over it. What about the cold weather affecting them? Chesapeake Bay; Brazil; [etc] and fireworks. 100,000 birds are killed every year by windmill blades and DbM doesn't report that because wind power is a Liberal idea. Some say it is "Climate Change" to be blamed.
I was miles away from Washington DC, and news stories started popping up about Obama being called a most corrupt POTUS on this program (by D.Issa). That was October 19th 2010 when Congressman Issa called to assure this audience that Conservatives were not compromising and caving to Obama.
I was concerned Conservative Republicans would cave (as usual) and Darrell Issa called to say it would happen with him and other Conservatives in the House.
There is now an attempt to intimidate Republican Conservatives to not investigate. People do not appreciate fully The Calvary showing up—it will not be business as usual. The Left is concerned about possible investigations.
Ezra Kline is a golden-boy brilliant young guy, "Constitution? What is that? It cannot possibly mean what it meant 100 years ago." Liberals show themselves. It is true of the American Left at large. There is a lot of "extra-Constitutionality" going on out there, with power grabs.
You Libs, keep the mindless attacks coming to this show;
[like bb-guns against the battleship Rush Limbaugh.]
((Clip-Issa: Rush had me on about "coming together" and he didn't like the compromise. I meant to say it is a corrupt administration with trillions to TARP, and STIMULUS.)) So Darrell Issa tries to walk it back a bit. I have no problem with Darrell Issa and those that stand with him.
When I hear Republicans say "work together to get things done" especially with Obama types, red flags go up. ((Clip-Issa: It's about the money; [it is Congress funds] They played loose with 'walking-around-money'.)) Congressman Issa, no matter what you say, DbM will twist it. To them, you are the enemy. You may as just say what you think.
There is no question this Adm is corrupt: they are concerned about proving it.
From the View ((Clip: He was bullied by Rush Limbaugh; and no one can go up against him.)) If Issa will just blame me, they will let him get away with it. Me, a little lovable fuzzball on the radio intimidated a congressman.
((Clip: You were pandering to Rush Limbaugh? No, this president is clean.))
>>> That was VP Bite-Me, and Obama is also articulate.
Seg#2: Rush quotes Darrell Issa directly :: Obama needed to learn
Darrell Issa mentions that he expected changes and not use Google and technology to do politicking from the White House. You can buy search results from Google and [Obama has.] Healthcare.gov will come from searching "Obamacare" or "healthcare".
>>> The Presidential Records Act is quoted by Darrell Issa.
Darrell Issa said he thought Obama would figure out not to abuse the WH.
Seg#3: We had to elect these Liberals to find out who they are
Talent "on loan" from Godd. Describing the corruption of this Regime, Darrell Issa was totally ignored last year. Now that he comes with The Calvary, they want him to walk it back. ((Reading transcript: You get paid-for results when you type "Obamacare and Abortion" directing to Healthcare.gov. Politico mentions it.)) We all know the disaster that Obamacare is, and that people hate it. House Republicans will vote on my birthday, January 12th, to repeal Obama Healthcare.
What greater gift could House Republican Conservatives give me?
Paying Google to direct traffic is corruption because they lie about care. "I expect those changes to happen", Issa said last year. [Rush is reading extensively from October 19th, which you can find by searching Rush's website, so easy to do.]
((Clip)) That is how they lie; they are not any benefits to Obamacare. There are over 250 waivers to corporations to exempt them from the vigors of the law so they can stay in business. ((Clip-on: It is just political theatre.)) Death Panels are back.
((Clip-Pelosi: If everyone was pleased, it would have still have been necessary to sustain the system.)) Just not true; it is just the opposite. The Budget and the Deficit are in peril because of Obamacare. Never has so much been spent with so little to show for it. All we get is larger government.
Debbie Schultz says you are not obligated to buy health insurance, but then why is there a penalty if you don't? Why are IRS agents hired to track you down? You can disregard anything that this Congresswoman from FL says.
>> >> >> Obama healthcare was never about healthcare.
Seg#4: Can Capt Owen Honors get his post back claiming to be GAY ?
There is a story out that birds were sucked into storm and died. Dr Roy Spencer confirms that is possible. After they lost to the NFL seahawks the blackbirds got sucked in. Then when the winds die down they drop to the ground.
Captain Owen Honors (mocking GAY folks) has lost his Navy post. Is it too late for him to claim to be GAY? He could get a pass and even a promotion for boosting morale.
F. Chuck Todd wants to intimidate ((Clip: Do [The Calvary] newly elected want this to be what they are remembered for?)) Chuck, majority voted against the Obama Agenda. Did he talk this way when Obama blamed Bush for two years?
>>> Expect Calvary Conservatives to fulfill their promise to voters.
[ED: Actually, your humble editors just coined 'Calvary Conservatives', not Rush]
"Mass La. bird deaths puzzle investigators" [Linked from the Drudge Report]
Seg#5: Chair of Obama's Council of Economic 'Advisors'
Austan Goolsby says the dead blackbirds died because they hit the debt ceiling.
> > > I didn't know they could fly that high.
Seg#6: Rush Limbaugh makes the 'most influential' list at #9
(Theme Music) January 1st this year, CA phases out purchase of "Edison" incandescent lightbulbs. It is a scam and a scandal.
By a margin of three to two in a Rasmussen poll shows likely voters with a strong opinion do not like Obama's performance. He didn't come back from anything. UK press gets it correct, and his popularity diminishes.

For the ten days of Christmas, I did not watch one news show. I "literally" did nothing. Obama was just around the corner in Hawaii. He looks like a stick figure sucking on 'shaved ice', skipping meals. Michelle-my-belle doesn't let him eat.
Why are some on our side pandering to her on child obesity? How many crows were female, hitting the glass ceiling, dying, and falling from the sky?
MessNBC has a special on individuals (I'm #9) ((Clip: He uses 'olde media' with 20 million listeners. People share his ideology but he says things that just are not true.)) That was meathead. ((Clip: A hero to the right and can sway public policy. #8 is Ted Kennedy.)) Speaking of the Kennedy family, this is the first time in 28 years there is not a Kennedy in elected office. I promoted term limits.
((Clip-Scarborough: He created the new media environment. Etc. He stays true to what he believes when he could make more money. There are so many who came along.)) Most influential, so far, because the 20th century is not over.
((Clip: Rush Limbaugh finds everything possible to disagree with Obama. That has been successful. People do not want Obama policy. He fueled Tea Party. WH did not do a good job telling their story.)) Amazing! Being critical of Obama has been successful as a strategy? He's a socialist—what should Republicans have done? Yes, as a political strategy, I plot every day. Betty Crocker is a strategist?
Some get themselves a radio gig and call themselves a 'strategist', and
>>> the hierarchy of either party has never heard of them.
Seg#7: Obama redistributes the greatness of USA healthcare
Caller: Obama bribed more in Congress than Al Capone ever hoped to do.
"The way things are done" can still be corruption. A question rises [in the blogosphere] "Could Obama be ruining Economy on purpose?" I have been saying that for years. Jobs are not created; drilling in the Gulf, not by us. Obama has a chip on his shoulder against USA. People are stunned to think who they elected.
People are asking. Per se, that is not corrupt. Buying search results on Google to lie? Most people don't know you can buy search results using your tax dollar.
Caller-gal: Glad to have you back. Medicare get 50% off on 'donut hole'. That is not for consumers. It says that the government can demand companies reduce price or the product will be taken off the approved government list.
>>> It is all by design. [Companies will discontinue research.]
S#8: Rush Limbaugh explains how he is not hated by the right people
Is it corrupt to pretend the Constitution doesn't exist? Is it corrupt to ban drilling when a federal judge says not to? What about the Czars? We don't know what they are doing—is that corrupt? It is certainly 'fast-and-loose'. People are waking up.
The presidential election of 2008 was all theatrics and [white guilt]. "I'm a good person and not a racist — I voted for the historic first Black president." And that was nothing to do with his Marxist socialism.
Caller: These Liberals attacked Bush for years. Attacking you, Rush Limbaugh, is like trying to push a greased pig up a hill, won't work. Sarah Palin has more experience than this skinny little guy.
To this day, I have friends and associates who give me that line on Sarah Palin and I just say, "Oh yeah; give me four more years of Obama" and they are puzzled.
The Left cannot get elected by promoting their own Agenda and hence demonize. They tell you whom they are most afraid of. I don't mind it. No other Republican is speaking up and are content to let me be their demon. You can have media success with people that don't like you, but you can't get elected that way. Bush didn't fight back.
They know I have them pegged. They know I am right. Their task it to make sure that voters don't agree with me. I get questions, "What is it like to be you?" I am not as hated as much as they think. An example from NFL: websites and everywhere said, "everyone is talking about 'XYZ'", and they were not. The only ones talking about it were in media, no one else.
People allow media to affect how they think. In Hawaii this was born out. These people on the Left take advantage of DbM to demonize me but it hasn't worked. It is actually a high form of flattery, jealousy. Criticism of me or Bush or others on the Right, it is tough to demonize the Truth. It is hard to make Truth the villain.
We don't strategize—it is who we are—we don't need TOTUS or notes.
If Liberal-Progressives want to keep demonizing Truth,
>>> I'll be happy to be their target.
Seg#9: Watch for the annual Superbowl Sunday on January 23rd
Caller: NFL Eagles made the playoffs as you didn't expect.
I was almost right in NYC but blew it. I do not buy media conventional wisdom and go the underway. Media wisdom was 'Eagles are unbeatable'. I was right about Donovan McNabb and now you do not see my name mentioned.
We'll see. Tell you what, NFL Philadelphia Eagles
> losing to Vikings: my prediction may end up true, albeit a month late.
www.nfl.com/schedules?seasonType=POST Sunday 23rd 3pm is Superbowl [?]
ED: We are always glad/gay when Superbowl is after church so we can still be religious.
Seg#10: It's a strategy to show that I am still human.
> I choose to be wrong about NFL trivia, like Eagles.
Seg#11: Even wuss-Eddy says America is being 'chickified'
(Music) I choose to be wrong on trivia as a strategy. I owe someone a steak dinner over PA Eagles making the playoffs. He produced the Haney Project on golf. He gives me gifts from PA, such as a Phillies cap going into World Series.
There will be eight 22-minute episodes, cut down from a hundred hours of golf video. We shot six hours with my #7 golf club, and putting was another hour. The golf channel could make an entire year on what we videotaped. We may go to Mexico; we went to Bahamas. Am I giving too much away? It has been time intensive [fun] and worth it to my game. So I am now in 'reality' TV.
Tuning out during Christmas time just be how it is like being a Democrat. The thing that was different was I paid for everything. Kathryn can tell you "Blizzard headed to Philadelphia and may cancel the game" got me excited. Football and snow blizzards go together. It is risk avoidance and 'chick-i-fi-cation' of the nation. The one place we had manly men. It becomes beach volleyball.
Before a flake had even fallen, the mayor declared an emergency. That was all it took to cancel the game, Vick not considered. It was disappointing. The players wanted to play. Fast-Eddy Rendell then surprised me, talking like Ronald Reagan ((Clip)) He threw snowballs at the Dallas Cowboys. How can he be a Liberal ((Clip-on: This is part of chickification of America. There was less than . . . Good Lord, what were the people in Chicago thinking?)) What about the Donner Party, not being able to get to the Indian casinos. "It was an unusually cold winter", said the pioneers. What would they think of us?
So they schedule Superbowl 2014 in NYC in early February.
Kids can't even play dodgeball; they can't even go outside without a note from the doctor. We can't have any courage. [satire] We still can't build in NYC after 9/11 because we might offend somebody. Wuss Liberals!
>>> What made wuss Eddy abandon Liberalism? Football.
Rush adds, "if only for a day or two."
S#12: Anti-America means "not America" substituting something else
Caller: It is not about NFL but how this nation is being taken down.
Caller: Mark Steyn was great; explained 'anti-America' (instead of).
[One World Government]
>>> He's doing a better job than Khrushchev did, pounding his shoe.
Like antipasti is salad.
Seg#13: Take your private pension? Who will prevent them?
$1.3trillion budget and $100billion is not even the equivalence of a dime! DbM picks up the mantra that Conservatives have not identified where to cut and do without. We do not have the money! DbM do not understand the vim and vigor The Calvary brings with them to DC. There is only $400billion discressionary.
They could repeal Obamacare.
The Left uses their trick to say they are untouchable—who says these programs are untouchable? Just pass a different law. Cutting $100billion in this climate is possible.
Even back in the 1988 presidential debates, candidate Reverenddddd Jacksonnnnn said he was concerned about running out of ways to raise taxes — money for the government. He wanted to raid individual private pension funds. Believe the Liberal Clowns when they say what they want to do. They get an idea into their heads (SUV, lightbulb) and they do not let go and give up.
You must admit there is a stigma for driving a large SUV and buying gas.
Then I say this story DC Examiner Mark Hemmingway. ((Reading: Christian Science Monitor reports pension schemes in Europe, designed by government. Five such efforts are noted.)) We are on the same track they are. Greece is going to build a giant wall to control immigration from Turkey.
Europe starts confiscating group and personal private pension funds. Folks, our Obama gov't is no different, not having any money. A month-old poll says the public wants to 'tax the rich' and why release it now? I don't believe it anyway.
Newly wealthy fear The Regime will just take their money. What's to stop them? It's not increased taxation that frightens them the most. The government doesn't have any real money. The only money they have is from the printing press. So where can they get real money? Watch out! I haven't seen this yet except in CA.
>>> > >>> Drive-by Media [DbM] will say, "it is only fair".
It's only a matter of time for some Liberal in Congress to say it also.
Caller: DbM says number #1 tasks is to get jobs. No, it is to repeal Obama.
Caller: Obama is frustrated that he can't ruin the Economy.
I want to talk about that tomorrow. Remember, a lot of what he has done will take years to unravel.
>>> Obama set time-bombs to go off, and off, and off, generations.
Segment#15: Just a 'heads-up' on what media/Democrats will say
They claim the repealing Obamacare will cost trillions and lose jobs.
>>>>>>> These people are laughably shameless!
Closing: Can't wait to get back—see you in 21 hrs.

Dana Loesch performs a public service in compiling a list of the 10 most underreported stories of 2010. Her list is full of smart commentary and good links. I think that in one way or another we've gotten to almost all of the stories that Loesh lists, though I think we have failed to get up to speed on the Pigford story in any of its several manifestations.
Loesh comments: "You won't see the stories [on her list] in the pages of the NYT or on the screens of NBC. You won't hear them discussed at the water cooler. They're the stories that show without any doubt the cards held by those who wish to enslave the masses to the god of government."
I think that Loesch misses one story that belongs high up on her list. It is a story that, like the others she compiles, was chronicled on one or the other of Andrew Breitbart's Big sites over the past year. I refer to the exposure of the "Tea party protesters scream 'nigger' at black congressmen" story as a vicious con job.
Breitbart did not merely chronicle the story. He played the indispensable role in demonstrating that the story, reaching to the top ranks of the Democratic congressional leadership, was a falsehood calculated to indict the resistance to Obamacare as -- what else? -- racist. Breitbart performed the difficult task of proving the negative with something like metaphysical certainty. If Pulitzer Prizes were handed out on the merits, Breitbart would be packing up to collect his this year.
It is a story that we kept at over the 18 parts of our "Don't leave it to Cleaver" series. And it is a story that is of continuing relevance in understanding the critical challenges we face in the coming years.

The House Republicans have announced their plans to put the Obamacare repeal up for a vote during the week of January 10, 2011. This evening they posted the text of the proposed legislation to the GOP House Committee on Rules website.
Here it is, all two pages of it:
