I caught Rush’s first interview with Greta. It was phenomenal.As good as some of his radio shows “used to be.”


You mean he didn’t hawk any iced tea on Greta?

Will have to go back and catch the first night, I guess on gretawire.com. The second night was definitely Rush at his best.

It’s all part of the war on capitalism and the war on the middle and lower classes the commiecrats are waging at full warp speed.


Did anyone notice that when Obama went “on the stump” last week to shill for his “economic plan” he did his black speaking accent thing, but when he did the weekly radio message shilling for it he sounded like a white Illinois law professor. Evokes fond memories of Arafat in Arabic/Arafat in English.

Yuri taught them well.

Cantor also supports a GOP version of the Dream Act. I don’t trust Cantor one bit.

They have to vilify the rich to allow gummit to regulate income and results. They always have to have a villain when in reality they are the problem.

That wasn’t the first time Cavuto allowed guests to talk over each other without his intervening.


When this happens I usually wonder WHO finds it appealing enough to keep watching? Is it the scrubbed version of the Springer audience that prefers its brawls to be rhetorical? Is there such a demographic?

I end up believing that Ailes and those who run the network think it proves they are “balanced” or some such thing.

It’s weird because nothing is more certain to get me to turn it off than these talkover spats. Not that I’m likely to turn it on much these days.

He has no interest in the American economy. He had a lot more to work with when he started, and if W Bush was so bad, why has Obama made no progress? Log in eye syndrome? Talk smack, can’t back?(more likely)

Consider this:

The overall size of the working-age native-born population increased by 16.4 million from 2000 to 2013, yet the number of natives actually holding a job was 1.3 million lower in 2013 than 2000.

The total number of working-age immigrants (legal and illegal) increased 8.8 million and the number working rose 5.3 million between 2000 and 2013.

Good morning Cousin Mike.....

Got a question for you, you might have some input.

So we “discover” this past week that there was a bunch of CIA operatives at the Libyan consulate (or near by) but I wasn’t surprised.

I’d heard, of course, that there were a bout 30 “embassy employees” at the consulate, or its annex, the night of the attack but it was hardly any kind of secret, except perhaps to ABCNBCCBSWAPONYT- that there was some kind of CIA operation going on.

Scuttlebutt is that there was an arms-running operation going on, sending arms to Syrian rebels, that sort of thing.

Which is exactly what I think is going on and my query is two fold.

First, all my life I recall hearing whispers or inuendos that some president or another was involved with running some sort of gun-running operation.

I am reminded quickly of Reagan and the Iran-Contra affair but through the years it’s always out there.

So running arms to Syrian rebels, what was wrong with that?

NO WAIT MIKE! Let me tell you my thoughts and you correct me where I am wrong.

Oh, and YOU cousin Mike, have a HUGE part in an upcoming chapter of my book, actually the character based on you steps up to become the new temporary President.

But I digress.

First, the CIA always seems to be involved in this sort of thing but I’ve no doubt the President always knows about it.

Isn’t the concept of arming the enemy of our enemies a good one? Except, of course, the fact that our elected legislators have no say in the matter and it’s kind of a dangerous thing to hang on the head of one human being.

And of course, wouldn’t those 30 CIA operatives be expected to keep their identities secret, maybe change their identity?

I don’t much like Obama, but of course, but on this arms to Syrian rebels I’m not sure this country wasn’t involved in the sort of thing we’ve been involved with through the ages.

What say you?

Yes, in the case of Benghazi he claims when the call came in he immediately gave the order to do everything possible, yet we know it was a half-hour into the 5 o’clock meeting with Panetta before they decided which option to pursue, which is 1 hour and 40 minutes after what must have been a frantic call to Washington from a guard who had seen the attackers breaching the compound with machine guns. Just what before and after that meeting was going on? And why couldn’t Panetta get any results to assist after the decision was made?


Based on everything we have learned about all this, I’m inclined to believe the Shoebat-based version, which is basically that Obama fully expected the attack as part of a plan to kidnap the ambassador and trade him for the blind sheik later on.

I know it sounds like tin-foil-on-head type thing, but what else explains the stand down orders and the basic air of neglect in DC that night—??

The thing went bad when a second, more bloodthirsty group of jihadis got into the act and killed Stevens. This happened in the past when al Qaeda ops were undercut by yet-more crazy terror groups. If you ever read up on WHY bin Laden refused an al Qaeda franchise to groups like GIA in Algeria you can get the gist of how the Benghazi kidnapping turned into a complete fiasco.

I’m not often comfortable in a tin foil hat but I’m wearing this one until otherwise notified.

Yikes!

Somehow Schmuckey sneaked into my TV set as I was talking to my better half.

He was talking to incontinent Bob about Putin, stating that he was an old KGB officer and he wanted to build it up, but was not going about it the right way. Shumah stated that should be building up the economy and creating jobs.

I stopped talking to my wife and yelled at the TV “The same thing is true of Obama, you MORON!”

Paul Ryan now up with the Octo.

IB asking Ryan about “immigration” (GOP should reject the premise that immigration needs reform)

Ryan says House rejects the Senate bill.

Secure border first, legal permit, no special pathway. If they want citizenship, they go the back of the line after legal immigrants.

Rush “nailed” the current state of the Republican Party and the split between conservatives and RINO’s. He squelched the idea of a third party as being a guarantee of RAT dominance for eternity. When asked by Greta who he admired in politics he mentioned Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin. Most interesting of all was Rush’s take on Obama and his “Limbaugh Theorem”. He claims that Obama remains in a campaign mode blaming the Nation’s problems (his policies) on the Republicans.

During the interview with Greta, Limbaugh stated that Obama has lost over 9 million jobs on his watch.

Well PB, you did throw back a debatable point to me right quick, didn’t you?

Which is that it’s not a good idea to encourage this sort of thing as we have a congress elected by the people for a reason.

If we want the enemies of our enemies to have more arms, bring it out to the light of day, let use debate the strategy.

Perhaps that’s an over-simplification and here’s my alumunim hat suggestion....

I for sure am convinced that Obama will give money, arms, gold, whatever, to whoever sends the most back to him and his power base (I call it the CBC, your knowledge might vary).

I would not be one bit surprised if those arms weren’t going to somewhere that might not be as appetizing as the Syrian rebels, maybe right into the hands of Al Queda operatives.

We need to shine the light of investigation into this whole phony scandal.
