Your Rush Limbaugh Echo for Tuesday, 6/12/12
Student NOTES from Institute juniors, not 'official'
Open: Neat News from World-wide Apple Developers.
Seg#1: Obama lumps teachers, firefighters, and cops into government
"Private Sector is fine" says Obama, calling for more cops, firefighters, and teachers. So illustrative, I need to explain further: DbM/Obama/Democrats are so tied to a past, and that doesn't work: Marxism always fails.
Private Jobs are down 4.6million and public jobs are up more than 11%. So Obama mentions nothing about productivity. Statistics from The Regime show how out of touch Obama/Regime is.
Obama illustrates how dangerous he is—his ideology and lack of knowledge.
We all assume teachers, firefighters, and cops, are part of the public sector. Understand that Obama is not really talking about the jobs of teachers, firefighters, and cops; he is talking about their unions and how they coopt union dues.
The value to productivity has to be calculated, and it is a mistake to measure it like we do with 'commerce'. Who can keep track of how well the graduating students will do. If the states went bankrupt tomorrow, people would find ways to continue funding the cops. Education and Security have always been part of the private sector. Value can be measured.
Let's bring Obama back into this: he always presses for more, and more, and more! It doesn't matter may many there are, there always has to be more, to him. They have a value that can be measured, but a town of 900 does not need more and more teachers. They don't need to hire 200 firefighters with retiring benefits at 90% of full pay, with also healthcare.
Most communities do not have a shortage of teachers, cops, and firefighters; but to Axelrod and Obama, that means more jobs and adding to both private and public sector. The trick is "Don't fall for it." Teachers, firefighters, and cops, have a different relationship to the public and government jobs.
When Obama says we need more teachers, firefighters, and cops, he does not mean more in the classroom, chasing bad guys, and climbing ladders. No, he means more Liberal jobs to manage them or teach them political correctness. Remember how Stimulus worked—union wage additions that benefit no one.
Who doesn't want protection? Who doesn't want firefighters? Who doesn't want the best teachers? My point is: we are not at a shortage. Obama wants different than you would first think. You have a lot of Conservative firefighters and cops. You also have Conservative teachers who can't say so.
Teachers, firefighters, and cops are with us, not bureaucrats.
>>> Obama ties them in to make you see Gov't in a positive way.
Seg#2: Unions in government created current friction
Here's the thing: cops protect the wealth but they do not create the wealth. Same with firefighters. Teacher teach children to create wealth. Obama divides; jobs became unionized, creating opposition. The division was intentional.
>>> Were it not for unions, there would not be all of this friction.
KFI/DbM news: From 2007 to 2010, USA family wealth decreased 40%.
www.latimes.com/business/realestate/la-fi-family-worth-20120612,0,3132029.story [Federal Reserve reports]
Segment#3: 53% of Black wealth has been wiped out in three years
Look at Detroit, if you will: do they need more teachers, firefighters, and cops? No. Then need more economy. What Obama/Axelrod want are more bureaucrats. They want more community organizers. They are out of ideas.
According to the survey, the greatest decline in wealth was with 'rich'. The wealthiest 10% saw the largest decline in income.
Daily Caller notes the Obama Campaign trying to rally Blacks ((Clip-accent: We have to show the president we stand with him [Obama quotes, yelling] Register now. We have your back.)) This is the sign of big trouble. [Rush refutes the points: Head Start; student loans; health insurance for poor and elderly.] They run ads in June to a segment that votes 93% for Democrats—They are in heap big trouble.
((Clip-Roland-Martin: 53% of Black wealth has been wiped out.)) This is why The Regime tries to appeal to them; that, and GAY marriage. It should be, "I'll have your back even though up to now I haven't."
((Clip-Angela Wry [Black accent] This is the hardest election for me. Obama is not cool.]] She is upset and offended, calling the ad 'racist'. She hopes there are not race riots.
>> >> >> She hopes for no race-riots, but she floats the idea.
Seg#4: What does the US commerce secretary do?
James Carville has a Democracy Corpse polling group. A polling group is different than a phone poll, like what Frank Luntz does. They say the Celebrity in Chief will fail if he (Barack Kardashian) if he focuses on the economy. They say the only thing keeping him alive is that Romney is perceived as not connecting with ordinary guys and gals. If Romney connects as a regular guy, then Obama is sunk, their focus groups indicate.
We have known since Porkulus I & II that Obama would be toast in a past election. FACTS and REALITY will be the demise of Obama in the WH. This is not the way things are done in America. Obamacare is unpopular; Economy is down.
It just now hits DbM that Obama could lose. Talks with Pakistan breaks down; Eric Holder is up for contempt of Congress, Etc. Could it get worse? It depends on your point of view: if Supreme Court strikes down part of all of Obamacare, that would be better for America.
The commerce secretary (Bryson) strikes a blow to the Obama Campaign, bashing his car into people.
>>> Who knew we had a commerce secretary? It's news to many.
Medical leave: www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/06/11/us-commerce-secretary-accused-causing-2-car-crashes-in-los-angeles/
Seg#5: DbM reports that younger voters are not supporting Obama
>>>>> By contrast, younger voters flocked to WI Gov Scott Walker.
Seg#6: Six words hurting Obama, "The Private Sector is Doing Fine!"
(Theme Music) Kidding you not: newly discovered commerce secretary drives into somebody, gets out, gets back in and runs over the victim again. A reporterette says it shows how contentious politics has become.
The Left believes Obama is at the super-genius level, despite the gaffes. They are stunned when the bottom falls out. Dana Millbanks and other in DbM write about the wreck at the White House, including the commerce secretary:
An Obama Tweet wants teachers with a bad story to send a Tweet to Romney: 'Share your story about your dilapidated school'; as if Romney is anti-teacher, anti-firefighter, and anti-cop. How will that work?
Spokeskid was beat up ((Clip-Carney: You'all ought to do your jobs and report on context.)) And Time magazine Mark Halperin wants a 'truce' after the Obama gaffe. The jury is still out on what Obama knows and intends for the Economy. He clearly does not want a growing Private Sector. Jay Carney has to be careful when he challenges Media to do their job.
((Montage: Six words could cost Obama his reelection.)) "The private sector is doing fine." When he says this he means the Private Sector 1% is always doing fine. Big corporations is what he means. The Mom & Pop shop is not Private Sector to Obama. Unemployment does not happen in Private Sector in his world view.
Public Sector is up 11.4% while Obama takes jobs out of the Private Sector. People with a genuine intelligence and knowledge see Obama's giant gaffe. Obama sees immorality in Private Sector, and he apologizes to the world. He sees America as unjustly founded and built. He says it with a smirk and resentment. He doesn't say, "The Private Sector is fine" like you and I would understand and say it. Obama wants transformation.
What Obama is saying is "I don't want to hear any complaints about Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and rich people like them, including corporations. They will always be there for me to tax."
>>> DbM/DNC only asks, 'How is this going to help/hurt reelection?'
Rush promises to 'jam' with callers after the break.
Seg#7: North Dakota poised to eliminate property tax as not needed
Snerdley wants me to comment on the Apple developers' conference from yesterday. Any president should point to innovation, not adding more teachers, firefighters, and cops in Detroit. I hate picking on Detroit, an example of Liberalism out of control.
Caller-AK: When Private Sector is 'fine' then Public Sector has $$.
Look at North Dakota: they eliminate property tax. There is an economy booming due to oil. Same in UT and MT. Sales tax revenue is up 83% and they didn't raise taxes: it is due to increased commerce. "I don't believe that a tax should have the power to make you homeless" when you can't pay homeowner tax. Polling had opposition three to one, fearing Obama.
When my assessment letter was lost in the mail ten years ago,
>>> . . . it almost happened to me.
Check FoxNews when the North Dakota polls close at 8pm Central Time.
Seg#8: How much did Michelle Obama get paid for doing very little?
Some workers in the Assessor's Office hoped I wouldn't pay the bill. Go for it, North Dakota, running a surplus of what? $900billion. Sales tax and income tax are up and property tax is not needed. What distractors are worried about is how the state will support their welfare programs if [Obama kills their oil boom].
Eric Holder testifies before Congress about Fast & Furious and is told he should resign. It's problematic for Obama and The Regime.
Caller: What does Obama have to do with paying teachers, firefighters, and cops. I was on city council and he didn't send checks.
Good point: he just uses "teachers, firefighters, and cops" to soften criticism.
Caller: The job is done with a dozen and we don't need more padding payroll. In another office they wanted to plant trees and we live in the forest.
When you live in a town or city that faces a budget crisis, what is the first thing Liberals tell you? They threaten cutting teachers, firefighters, and cops. It's all a ploy. These are not even federal jobs.
Clinton was the first to popularize this with his 100,000 new cops. After a few years, the cities and towns would have to pick up the new bill or fire them.
Michelle Obama and Barack never had a lot of money until a hospital gives her a 'no show' job, paying her $317,000. When she left, they didn't even need to replace her. She did do a little work to turn away poor people, pointing them to other hospitals, "dumping". She had a little help in getting it implemented.
>>> We are now up to an obscene commercial break—be right back.
Seg#9: Another book doing the job of American journalism
Eric Whitaker hired Michelle Obama and also tried to bribe the Reverend Jeremiah Wright $150,000 to stay silent.
"I had more important things to do", Obama couldn't campaign in WI. And he can't play basketball. "I have a lot of responsibilities."
Obama says he was too busy to campaign and oppose Scott Walker, but he was all around Wisconsin and flew over it several times.
>>> It is all in Barack Obama, the story by David Moraniss.
S#10: AP/CBS: Liberals threaten to not vote in November.
>>> >>> I don't expect this deflation to hold up.
Seg#11: Rush has two top-of-the-line desktop Macintosh computers
(Music) I have been waiting for the upgrade to my two Mac Pro computers, one here and one at home. Thunderbolt now is faster than firewire and USB. I have a lot stored with video, using terabyte drives. I use two backups also taking storage. I wanted an external drive and use Thunderbolt for data transfer.
"Are you going to modernize it or discontinue the Mac Pro — just tell us. To heck with your secrecy, our businesses hand in the balance" some said in a Facebook petition. So it is announced but they do not use the latest chips. Steve Jobs would have never permitted this.
Last night I discovered on an Apple blog I find Mac Pro is being resigned for next year. David Ploughue writes for The New York Times, and we know about that. What am I to do? Without USB3 and without Thunderbolt, I don't have what even the new, thin 15" MacBook, costing $4,000 if you max it out.
Apple will never tell you even when they have no competitors at the Mac Pro level. I really want Thunderbolt, offered on every other computer they sell.
On the other side, Business Insider bounces off Axelrod and Obama and writes how Apple is trying to destroy Google. Steve Jobs had $40billion in the bank and said he would spend every penny of it because Google stole Apple technology.
>>> With this rollout yesterday the battle begins.
S#12: Obama-appointed czars are often unknown, gumming things up
I want to put my money in play; but I want Thunderbolt. This is like waiting to see about the election, taxes, and Obama. I am sitting on money I willingly waiting to spend. I am afraid to spend on what I really do not want because what I really want may come along from Apple. Same with Obamacare/Obama.
Obama and Axelrod wants teachers, firefighters, and cops to build the economy. ((Reading: PASSBOOK is an application to let Apps collect money. Just wave the iPhone at the store.)) The writer speculates Apple could 'own' the mobile payment and could put Google out of the market.
PASSBOOK could also send 'notification' about deals or what you want as you drive by. There is a reason Apple is number one in innovation. Obama and Axelrod have no clue innovation is going on. They are stuck in a Marxist paradigm where people have 'jobs'. American exceptionalism is going on despite The Regime.
Facebook is having problems with their Apps, and Apple just partnered with them. Internet searches will be replaced by Apps, a long way off but 'forward thinking'. People running our country are nowhere in this league. They want to go back to 100-yr-old electric car technology.
Our commerce secretary ought to be all over this, not a car accident.
>>> We have a series of unapproved czars gumming things up.
Rush adds that Obama is not looking cool, still using Blackberry.
Seg#13: Make your Conservative values/ideas known for Tampa
The Heritage Foundation sets up Freedom Works with the RNC to let your ideas be forwarded for Republican-platform planks. They will present your ideas to the platform committee. You have a chance to influence them, and they welcome your Conservative ideas. Visit www.FreedomWorksForMe.com
Caller-WI: Obama dropped the ball (1) WI; and (2) student tuition.
University of Wisconsin board of regents are proud they snuck in a 5% increase in tuition? Obama was doing 153 fund raisers, selfish guy.
Caller-WV: Carter revealed our stealth technology; now Obama ups it.
Yes, Obama is trying to be John Wayne. For 364 days a year, Democrats are doves; on one day of politics they are hawks, not fooling anybody. He is dangerous with all of us and doesn't please Liberals in the NutsRoots Nation. ((Reading: Threatening to not donate money or even show up to vote.)) They do not like the militaristic Barack Kardashian.
He's puffing himself up like the muscular Jack LaLaine and nobody is buying it. Rumsfeld and others understand the need for national secrets and they are astounded with Obama leaks. If they understood like I do, they wouldn't be 'astounded'.
Obama thinks we are nothing special; we shouldn't be a super power; why should there be secrets? They have been educated this way. Kind of like Ron Paul, "We deserve what has happened. Just give them want we have."
Obama told Medvedev, "Nukes will all be reduced after I am elected, just tell that to Putin." President Carter promised to kill the B-1 bomber, caller noted.
>>> Liberal Democrat Leftists can never reveal their true Agenda.
Seg#14: How many presidents have been reelected to a second term?
Dennis Warneky figured out how to give you a virtual office. (Rush ad for Regus.) It is convenient for when you need it; when you are not there, you don't pay.
Caller: Bush Sr said Liberals love to tinker with the car but don't understand the engine.
Caller: 15 presidents have been reelected; all with larger margins.
It is all about the first term, if it is good or bad, re-up or tossed.
>>> Obama's record will be his demise; he is not even treading water.
Seg#15: The show ends for today; Do your 'listener prep' for 21 hrs.
Try this heart-warming stat: Since 1825,
>>> ... more than 2/3 of US presidents were not reelected.
Closing Sentence: Be back here in 21 hours.

From Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Losers here and there"
The headline asks: "Did Republicans deliberately crash the U.S. economy?" You usually find that kind of drivel in American rags, but this rot-gut appears in The UK Guardian. The Euro drive-by media.
It has been Republican strategy, they say, to block "pro-growth policy," while fueling job-killing austerity measures, and poor Obama is being blamed for the stinky economy. They praise figures like Harry Reid and David Axelrod for bravely saying aloud what Democrats have long whispered privately: "Republicans are so intent on beating Obama, that they are purposely sabotaging the country's economic recovery."
Their so-called evidence? Republicans are against more stimulus spending; they fought endless unemployment benefits; and they don't support a "loose money" policy by the Federal Reserve. According to these idiots at the Guardian, spending cuts, forced into law by Republicans, took needed money "out" of the economy. Yeah, liberals and socialists worldwide believe that only government spending works. Despite that theory being disproved over and over.
The fact is, Barack Kardashian and the Democrats have spent more than any Party ever has, trying to jump-start this economy. While they've grown government exponentially. It failed. It always does. It doesn't work. It never works.
There is only one thing left to do. Get rid of the losers here, and that's the Kardashian Regime. And ignore the losers over there who think the losers here have the faintest idea, what they're doing! Did you follow all that?

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"Do you think Obama knows anybody in the private sector apart from his campaign donors? In his book, Dreams From My Father, he described his only private sector job as being 'behind enemy lines.' The private sector's the enemy."
"I really don't want to be misunderstood here, but policemen don't hire anybody. Policemen don't create jobs. Teachers don't, either. And firefighters do not create jobs."
"You know, whenever the Democrats screw up, whenever Obama screws up, whenever a Democrat president screws up, it's always time for a truce."
"I don't want to sound like an old fuddy-duddy, but there clearly are right ways and wrong ways to do things. There are right ways and wrong ways to prepare children for later life as adults. And we've been engaged in too many wrong ways."
"This whole notion that Obama's slogan is Forward? It's 180 about-face marching right back to the 1930s."
"For somebody like Obama, the private sector's just there, folks. It's a golden goose. It never goes away. It's always a target. It can always be raped and pillaged. It can always be taken from. It's just always there!"
"'Commence' means what? Begin. Start. You're at zero! Commencement means you haven't done diddly-squat."
"The private sector, as far as he's concerned, is doing fine. If he thinks that the public sector is losing jobs, that's a problem. If there are fewer government workers, that's a major problem to Barack Obama."
"In case you've forgotten, the big stimulus was to make sure that these jobs were not eliminated -- teachers particularly. Yet he's out there promising shovel-ready jobs. 'We're going to rebuild schools and roads and bridges,' and all the happy horse dung. And that was all smoke and mirrors."
"The Obama doghouse must be getting crowded. 'Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel defended President Obama's handling of the economy on Sunday but also offered faint praise, saying that while the economy is 'not growing healthy,' it's still growing.' So it's still growing but it's 'not growing healthy.' Not exactly what you would want to hear."
"When do you ever see a story like this, Democrats divided? You don't see stories like that. But it's true, ladies and gentlemen. It's true. They are drifting apart, and this private equity thing is one of the greatest illustrations."
"Lanny Davis said, 'Vicious people' are working for the president. It's not the president, he said. Okay, we'll let him have that, but you and I both know that people in the campaign are simply reflections of Obama."
"The oil industry is on Obama's Kill List, just like coal is. The Kill List is not just terrorists. No, no, no, no, no. The Kill List is not just terrorists."
"Do you realize how old the electric car idea is? Would you like to take a guess? How old? When was the first electric car idea proposed? One hundred nine years ago. That's how old the notion of an electric car is. You could say people have been working on this for 109 years and we've not gotten past the golf cart, in practicality."
"Everything Obama's doing is looking backwards. He's against fracking, a new way to get more oil. We've got more oil deposits in this country than the Saudis have. Now, we can't get it the conventional way. It takes new techniques, which are now viable, which are now profitable."
"I tell you, these people are so out of context and out of touch, this bad week last week, it's continuing. It's going to end up being a bad two weeks for the Democrats if they're not careful."

The Supreme Court apparently is exiting the terrorist detainee administration business. Yesterday, it declined to hear the appeals of seven Gitmo detainees on whose behalf habeas petitions were filed, and denied, by lower courts. In Boumediene v. Bush, the Supreme Court held that detainees have the right to turn to the American judicial system for a "meaningful opportunity" to challenge their confinement. But a meaningful opportunity doesn't necessarily translate into »
Marc Thiessen points out that President Obama's claim that the private sector is doing fine actually echoes the words of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid from eight months ago. Said Reid: "It's very clear that private-sector jobs are doing just fine. So Obama's statement isn't a gaffe, but rather a window into the world view of the Democratic left. As Thiessen shows, Obama and Reid have it precisely backwards. Government »
