Your Rush Limbaugh Echo for Thursday, 9/20/12
Student NOTES from Institute seniors, not 'official'
Opening: What kind of mood are you in today?
Segment#1: When Obama Administration lies, that's OK ?
Go back to last December, nine months ago, I predicted and warned you: ((Clip: Unemployment numbers will mysteriously come down to 8% going into the Election. Do not get dispirited.)) I honestly don't know what Drive-by Media is looking at: ((Montage: Have we hit the bottom and the economy turning around?))
Key swing states are more enthusiastic about voting in both parties. The poll is of registered voters, not likely voters. Democrats can't wait to get out there to vote. DbM says it is because of the video of Romney not caring. It is all fiction.
Jobless claims fell 3,000 and so the Economy is recovering? Gas prices are still up in The New Norm. Obama Adm totally lied about the ben-Gazzi attack, but that doesn't matter because many do not care. Media doesn't cover this in The New Norm.
By design, you my fellow citizens feel ignored. More than 6million Americans will face an inconvenient fact of a tax increase due to Obamacare. They lied! ((Reading: Critics see it as a broken promise.)) A lie is a broken promise? The real numbers will be much higher! Why believe DbM?
You needed an independent counsel for Fast and Furious! Instead we have a whitewash and Eric Holder walks. This country has literally no leadership. On the anniversary of 9/11 and our ambassador is murdered. Commander-in-Chief goes on Letterman while the country is under attack.
There doesn't seem to be anyone who will put the country first: not in the House, the Senate, nor in the White House. I'll admit that Bush Adm went wobbly and relaxed the standards at G'tmo. We had the Jihad leader held there.
>>> Don't get dispirited — Obama gets a temporary blip in popularity.
Segment#2: Foreign Affairs Failure !
Having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have.
Chris Stevens had no protection and thought he was on a 'kill list'. The State Dpt had been warned trouble was brewing and it had nothing to do with the anti-Jihad video. It was timed for the anniversary of 9/11. The Navy SEALS that died with Chris Stevens were not on duty but volunteered to be with him.
>>> On the other hand, Valerie Jarrett has a security detail.
This is what we are dealing with—keep that in mind.
Seg#3: The census data of 2011 provides the 2012 lies for media
Seriously, what did I miss? The Economy is recovering? I started looking around and can't find anything but two AP story on the census. "The worst may be over, census may be involved." ((Reading: Americans are on the move again, not staying home with parents; poverty is slowing. Etc.) This is 2011 census data and makes the article laughable. ((Reading on about 2011: Home ownership dropped for 5th straight year, as does use of food stamps.)) The New Norm is that life sucks but you can move out on your own.
This is journalistic malpractice!
Only a fraction of 1% more have moved; and AP is in the tank for Obama/Democrats! They lie through their teeth and keyboards right in your face. If there were a Republican in the White House we would be in a full-blown Depression.
((Montage: Great new on the economy this morning; are we turning; we finally hit a bottom and the economy turning. Home ownership is turning.)) No, in 2011 it was the fifth straight year home ownership was down.
>>> They must work at being ignorant and not informed.
Seg#4: Obama Pacifism invites Jihad protest attacks !
Here's the money-quote from AP ((Reading: 11.6% moved in 2010 and in 2011 it was 12% showing recovery.)) I predicted DbM would try and this is how they did it. That was last year, 0.4% more moved over the prior year.
I don't want anyone getting depressed, rather I want you getting mad—your intelligence has been insulted. This malpractice in Drive-by Media is worse than ever in my lifetime. A G'tmo prisoner led the bin-Gazzi attack and our ambassador had on protection. Is it possible The Regime, (our Obama Adm) is setting all of this up. The apology of the movie went out before anything happened, to apologize for hurting Muslim feelings. Don't make me laugh by saying they were trying to head off trouble that never works.
Jihadists can attack for any reason, blaming the video, and they know Obama will stand with them. "Obama, Obama, we are all Osama!" they shout. "My Administration had nothing to do with it." Obama is setting off the protests.
Had The Regime conducted themselves in an adult manner, things could have been different. Now Pakistan reacts. Obama inspires protests by blaming the video and then defends the protestors more than the video.
>>> I'm so tick off I can't ask you to be more angry.
Seg#5: Any movement in the housing market is from "buying low."
As everyone knows, the valuation of housing has plummeted!
>>> The 47% can now afford to live in government-loan houses.
KXNT radio in Las Vegas says Romney is having a fundraiser, then rally.
Seg#6: Jihadist [do not] use the anti-Muslim movie as an excuse
(Theme Music) Gallup Daily Tracking Poll is out today; what do you think it says? They are tied at 47% to 47%. Before that Romney was down. So I guess Axelrod was successful in getting Gallup to take another poll. The Dpt of Justice has a lawsuit against Gallup.
((Clip-Joe-Lieberman: Ambassador Stevens was killed by a terrorist attack?)) So it wasn't the movie, brought out in testimony before Congress. ((Clip: Not from the protest, a group of men showed up with rocket-propelled gernades and AK-47s)) This counters what Obama, HRClinton and others said about the video. Obama keeps excusing and exciting violence with the movie.
"That stupid American president keeps blaming the American film maker, not me", says Terry Terrorist. "I can do what ever I want."
There is a TV ad in Pakistan showing Obama and HRClinton talking about the horrible movie saying, "Don't blame us." ABC, NBC, and CBS knows they lie! In the real world they would ask the president, "Why did you lie?" It won't happen.
((Montage of Lies: This video is disgusting [HRClinton] and denigrates a great religion. . . . . It was spontaneous, not premeditated [Susan Rice] . . . It was [terrible] and Jihadists use it as an excuse [Obama] )) This the truth is found out. They lie and continue to lie. The ad in Pakistan is from our State Dpt.
What can you do? I couldn't lie like this. How can you lie so blatantly when the truth is known? Do they count on ignorance?
>>> The TV ads in Pakistan have subtitles — they are Clintonesque.
Obama bragged too much about killing Usama bin-Laden.
Seg#7: Can you speak out against the theology of Jihad ?
Caller-MD: L.A.Times wrote about freedom of speech and exciting violence.
Liberals are shortsighted. A brilliant point: Muslims can make havoc all they want, but we can't speak out. Why do you think the American Left is so tolerant of terrorism and want us to blame ourselves?
Caller-still: They haven't seen Jihad happen to themselves and own families; secondly, they look to criticize standing for your own beliefs.
No doubt that is all true; I have a simpler theory: The American Left have a lot in common with militant Islam. Their common enemy is American Conservatism. The similarities are shocking.
>>> True American freedom is foreign to both Islam and the Left.
Seg#8: Liberalism is in bed with Communism/Marxism
[ED: We are driving through a ravine with no radio reception. In the olden days, cars drove on a scary windy road at the top of these cliffs.]
[Rush takes the L.A. Times article apart.] What the heck does Christian extremism have to do with Jihad today? Ask this in public schools:: QUESTION: Which would you rather get rid of: American Islam or American Conservatives? We would be voted down.
Caller: From Founding Fathers: Half of citizens would rather be equal in poverty than with some unequal in excellence. Will Obama promise more than Romney?
Safety, over Effort. Class envy.
>>>>> Liberalism is shared misery.
Seg#9: Marxism/Communism/Socialism has never succeeded !
'Socialism is a failure theology and the creed of ignorance; it is the gospel of envy and shared misery.' – Winston Churchill.
Stephanie Cutter does PR for Obama and stands by his lies on the video. ((Clip: the American people see the difference in the adult way President Obama handled it like an adult; versus, in the president's words, "Romney shot from the hip without aiming.")) It must be hard to speak for Obama when he lies.
>>> Media lets them get away with lying.
S#10: Warren Buffett is a backer of Obama and also BoA.
Bank of America will lay off 16,000 workers before December.
>>> Does this happen in robust economy?
Segment#11: Emperor fiddles while Rome is burning
(Music) CBS in DC agrees with Pew Research and Obama popularity. ((Reading: Only 15% of Democrats believe economic new is mostly poor. It is unchanged from a month ago.)) You can fool some of the people all of the time. The good news is that Drive-by Media is not fooling anyone new. Some are fooled because they don't care—they do not depend on the economy, they depend on the government.
60% of Republicans think the economy is bad, and so 40% think it is OK.
An eMail asks why Romney hangs with rich contributors. Obama wants to tax the rich and hang around Letterman/fans. Hollywood people have huge houses and bank accounts. It is all optics.
FNC America's Newsroom, Bill Hemmer ((Clip: Adm now confirms it was not a spontaneous outburst. How damaging is this to your campaign?)) Romney looked more presidential and got it right, so they have to cut it down. Hemmer doesn't let him get away with it. ((Clip: Everybody watching knows it is the president's job to clear this up.)) ... ((Clip-on: I just want to be clear on this. There is no plan from the administration to clear this up.))
Wolf Blitzer used to be a serious newsman. ((Clip-Wolf: With Letterman, Obama was on the top of his game; he will get votes.)) So he admits that it is all about getting votes. Netanyahu would smoke Obama and Letterman would just sit there like a dunce.
>>> "No question Obama did the right thing w/Letterman." Really?
Seg#12: Letterman was more serious than the joke of a president
I'm 61 and remember with Letterman was funny and presidents were serious; now Obama goes on as the joke/guest.
Caller: Media is nuts to say Economy is bottoming out. We trend downward.
Prior, they said we were in a recovery since 2009. ((Montage again)) So we are 'bottoming-out' three years after the recovery began.
>>> There not enough for another caller, if it the caller were a creep.
Seg#13: Rush Limbaugh explains what The Regime could do to us
I'm melancholy since it is the last time to use my iPhone 'mopie' to double the battery life. It won't fit on my new iPhone 5 with a better battery.
Caller-FL: No recovery here. I'm worried. Is there a currency crisis?
That's tough: if you print with QE-3 where is the contraction of the money supply? Interest rates could become volatile. It is designed to get Obama reelected. Japan just went for QE-8 after 20 years of shrinking.
Japan is on the virtual edge of war with China and it is not pretty.
The Treasury job is to prevent what they are actually creating.
Caller-still: It is a scary world.
I love America dearly and I wish more people could see Obama's purpose. Small business people are getting hurt worst. To the Democrat Party, you are the problem and are not paying your fair share.
If interest spike and massive inflation, watch already high gasoline prices and consumer prices. You feel inflation as The Regime tells you it is not here. It leads to stagflation and disinflation. I wish I had a better answer but I don't. It is controlled by 11 people and one person who wants reelection.
The effect of deflation (disinflation) is that there is no profit in manufacturing.
So why make anything? Why work for a loss, no profit?
>>> Disinflation is depression and businesses just give up.
Seg#14: Journalistic malpractice will catch up with Liberals in media
We know it was premeditated and our ambassador was tortured horribly. ((Clip-Obama: We are still doing an investigation; it will be different in different countries and so I don't want to speak too soon. . . . We don't know yet. We've received full cooperation from Libya and Egypt. [the video])) The FBI is on it. We know it wasn't the video, which they will tell only after the election, if at all.
There isn't any economic recovery going on ... and
>>> Misreporting will bite Drive-by Media in the end.
Seg#15: Economies are slowing down around the world
Air pollution is bad from grilled hamburgers; we'll discuss that tomorrow.
ChiCom economy is slowing down dramatically, not good for US.
>>> Ben Bernanke will not be able to control that.
Closing: See you tomorrow. [ED: Quick Quotes tomorrow.]

Following the Democratic Convention, intial polling suggested that Elizabeth Warren had taken the lead over Scott Brown in the Massachusetts Senate race. More recently, a poll by WBUR/MassINC put Warren ahead by 5 points, 47-42. But now comes a poll by UMass Lowell/Boston Herald, taken during basically the same period as the WBUR poll, that puts Brown ahead by 50-44. The poll also shows, however, that Brown's lead (assuming the »
John noted yesterday that Monica Lewinsky reportedly will write a tell-all book about her affair with Bill Clinton. I agree with John that Lewinsky's book probably won't have much impact on Clinton's standing. The political market has already discounted for the immorality of "Slick Willie." To be sure, any reminder that our leading "elder statesman" is, among other things, a liar and a perjurer will be welcome. It would be »
