The Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Show Thread - Wednesday, August 22, 2012
EIB Network ^ | August 22, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 08/22/2012 9:14:52 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

AND NOW . . . amidst billowing clouds of fragrant, aromatic first- and second-hand premium cigar smoke. . . it is time for . . . that harmless, lovable little fuzz ball, the highly-trained broadcast specialist, having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, from behind the golden EIB microphone, firmly ensconced in the prestigious Attila-the-Hun chair at the Limbaugh Institute of Advanced Conservative Studies, serving humanity simply by showing up, and he’s not retiring until every American agrees with him, do NOT doubt him, with shrieks of joy at the mere mention of his name (that’s Rush, for those in Rio Linda),the Mandarin of Talk Radio, with talent on loan from G-d, at the cutting-edge of societal evolution, with half his brain tied behind his back — just to make it fair, the all-knowing, all-caring, all-sensing, all-feeling, all-concerned Maha-Rushie! America’s anchorman, truth detector, and doctor of democracy. A Real Man, a living legend, a way of life. Commander in Chief of U.S. Operation Chaos. Chief Waga-Waga El Rushbo of the El Conservo Tribe. Chief of the Patriotism Police. Leader of the Conservative Movement. A Weapon of Mass Instruction. El Rushbo (a little Spanish lingo, there). He is the man who is running America (you know it and I know it). He knows the Democrats like every square inch of his glorious naked body. He is ready to do what he was born to do—that’s host. Get ready to what you were born to do—that’s listen (and post your comments on the Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Thread).

The California DMV is ‘on the verge’ of allowing up to 400,000 illegals who ‘qualify’ under Obama’s ‘deferred action’ amnesty decree to obtain licenses. This despite a 1993 law barring illegals from getting them., and despite the fact that Obama’s program has NO safeguards against fraud and abuse (Proof here: http://bit.ly/SnPwDW).

Ugh, I don’t know if it’s better for us to keep Elmer Akin Gantry in the news or not.

Since he’s not going away? Or do we just shove him down the Libtard throats?

More on “Dream Scheme”...The hits just keep coming...

The lack of fraud control is not an accident; it is by design. According to the letter, DHS officials have confirmed that the Department will not use fraud prevention or detection methods that are “too expensive,” “time consuming,” or which would “unduly impact” the expedited processing of applications…

In plain English – because they don’t want to reject any of these applicants. This is a political act. The provisions and requirements are absurd and completely for show. You can read yourself the new, so-called “guidelines” published just two days ago by the USCIS. In it one discovers that the path to amnesty is easily available for illegals aliens under the following circumstances:

(1) Provide a simple affidavit that one arrived in the U.S. prior to his or her 16th birthday and is under the age of 30
(2) Submit easily-acquired or fabricated copies of school or health records to back this up
(3) No H.S. diploma or GED is required, as in the Senate ‘Dream Act’ bill – as little as enrollment in a “literacy course” or “GED preparation course” will suffice. Did they even finish the course or obtain a GED? DHS won’t follow-up to find out.
(4) Even Middle-School dropouts can qualify, as the DailyCaller discovered. So much for our “future scientists, researchers, and entrepreneurs”. This amnesty opens to door to hundreds of thousands of unskilled workers to be granted legal status.
(5) No meaningful background checks will be performed, as DHS does not have the staff or budget to do so (and wants to rubber stamp them in any case)
(6) Illegals are permitted less than “three misdemeanor convictions” that are not “significant” – and even more if they are concurrent with a single crime – and still receive Obama’s amnesty. Even if they have a felony, DHS can waive the restriction in “special cases”.
(7) There is NO punishment for fraud in the application process. As USCIS puts it: “DHS annot use information from deferred action applications against the alien during subsequent removal proceedings”
(8) Since illegal aliens typically have multiple fake or stolen identities, criminals and even terrorists could gain quasi-legal status through this process, due to the failure to properly vet their documentation.
(9) Illegal aliens are being charged a miniscule $465 fee – and no penalties – to apply, but even that fee can be waived. As a result, this amnesty will cost the taxpayers at least $585 million (and that is based on the lower estimate of applicants)

The "War on Women" is a distraction that can easily be turned back on Obama's record on the economy.

Speaking to female voters:

"At the end of the month, are you the person who writes the checks to pay the bills?

Do you write the check to the bank for the mortgage payment?

Do you owe the bank more than your house is worth?

The price of homes is falling. Do you think that the value of your home will fall below the amount you owe on it?

In California, some families in that situation are receiving funds from American taxpayers like you to reduce the money they owe on their homes. Do you think that is a good idea?

Do you write a check to the electric company every month?

Has that check increased since President Obama has taken office?

Did you know that President Obama has said that the cost of all energy, under his plan, would "skyrocket"?

Do you think that increasing the cost of energy in this country is helpful for your family?

Does your family qualify for food stamps?

Did they qualify before President Obama took office?

There has been a 48% increase in the number of Americans receiving food stamps since President Obama took office.

Does this worry you?

Etc.

Etc.

Etc.

On every economic issue.

There have definitely been some Demon-rat machinations in this race, from Claire McKaskill’s campaign actually bankrolling some “pro”-Akin ads, to the manipulated PPP poll that showed him ahead by oversampling Rs.

However, I think Akin is a naive dupe, not a Dem ringer.
