  • Rush Limbaugh and Liberalism’s Fatal Flaw

    The American Thinker ^ | May 15, 2006 | Vasko Kohlmayer
    One of the Left’s great agonies and frustrations of the past fifteen years has been its abortive quest to field a counterpart to Rush Limbaugh. Fully cognizant of the massive damage inflicted on it by talk radio, a number of contenders placed bids to mount a counterattack. To their bitter dismay, they all came to grief despite the great hype and hope that surrounded each successive attempt. A decade and a half worth of feverish effort thus produced no headway, not even a single nationally viable liberal host. With nothing to show for, the time has surely come to ask...

    Pursuant to an agreement Rush has reached with state prosecutors in Palm Beach, Florida, they are finally abandoning their two-and-a-half year quest to criminalize a human tragedy—addiction to medication prescribed because of severe pain. Unlike most of us, who get to keep our private struggles private, Rush’s celebrity ensured that his would be played out publicly. With characteristic candor and humility, he admitted he had a problem. And he did it in a way that is rare today, although one that came as no surprise to those of us privileged to know Rush. He took real responsibility. He didn’t pretend...

    This is a question that no one seems to be asking. And so I've asked it. And here, in essence, is what I think is the answer. (The answer, of course, applies to Ford and Chrysler, as well as to General Motors. I've singled out General Motors because it's still the largest of the three and its problems are the most pronounced.) First, the company would be without so-called Monday-morning automobiles. That is, automobiles poorly made for no other reason than because they happened to be made on a day when too few workers showed up, or too few showed...
  • A Thought On Gasoline Prices - Rats ... Maybe They Sorta Make Sense

    Instead of listening to talking heads or talk show callers to learn about gasoline prices I decided to just sit down for ten minutes and do a little math. You know...the kind of math we learned in elementary school? In any case, I first checked out some facts on the internet (all figures are rough estimates rounded off): 2004 average cost of a barrel of crude oil: $37 2004 average cost of a gallon of gasoline at the pump: $1.85 Cost of crude oil as a percentage of the total: 47% This means that the crude oil cost came to...

    While lawmakers in Washington debate whether to forgive illegal immigrants their trespasses, a small but increasing number of local and state law enforcement officials are taking it upon themselves to pursue deportation cases against people who are here illegally. In more than a dozen jurisdictions, officials have invoked a little-used 1996 federal law to seek special federal training in immigration enforcement for their officers. In other places, the local authorities are flagging some illegal immigrants who are caught up in the criminal justice system, sometimes for minor offenses, and are alerting immigration officials to their illegal status so that they...

He got along with everyone. Some thought of him as "Arcadia's dog." "I think just about everybody who came to the courthouse has seen Jake," Garry Phillips said. Garry and Jake were buddies.

    Nationally known anti-tax crusader George Henry "Nick" Jesson will serve 27 months in prison for tax fraud, a judge has ruled. U.S. District Judge Percy Anderson on Monday also ordered Jesson, 55, to pay $215,454 in restitution to the federal government. The Fountain Valley resident, who ran for California governor in 2002, was taken into custody after his sentencing. Assistant U.S. Attorney Sandra Brown said she believes the sentence was "wholly appropriate" and would deter others from considering anti-tax protests. Jesson's wife, Trina Thi Vu, declined to comment after the sentencing, as did her attorney, citing pending state tax charges...

    MANY residents of UAE thought — mistakenly as it turns out — that they knew the Clintons. Former president Bill and former co-president/current New York Senator Hillary were deemed to be friends of the UAE — and the Arab world in general. While Hillary hadn’t visited the UAE recently, Bill is a regular — at least when he’s invited for a paid speech or appearance. Sometimes, he’s graced us in person — other times via a video conference. President Bush, everyone agreed, was an anti-Arab cowboy, worthy of little more than derision.

    Able Danger identified Mohammad Atta and at least 2 other 9-11 hijackers more than a year before the 9-11 attacks. Why was the data that connected Mohammad Atta as a possible terrorist threat to the United States destroyed, and why wasn't this information shared with the FBI so the 9-11 attacks might have been prevented? 1. Dr. Stephen A. Cambone, U.S. Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, explains that there wasn't any prohibition against sharing Able Danger information with the FBI. One of Dr. Cambone's colleagues says, "...we share in Army intelligence and DoD intelligence, we share information with the FBI...

These are the last gasps from a segment of the populace reluctant to accept its diminished political clout as the country’s ethnic minority. There are already signs of Sunnis backing away from an all-out confrontation. For good reason. While everyone suffers under tyranny, some groups must endure more than others. So while Saddam Hussein’s predominantly Sunni henchmen brutally ruled Iraq by crushing dissent and savagely subjugating the entire population, the Shiite and...

It seems that the bylaws refer to Article XXIII of the U.S. Constitution which expressly designates...

    Everything you always wanted to know (but were afraid to ask, or the answers were classified…) about the controversial Able Danger data mining project, which identified four 9/11 hijackers a year before the terror attacks. 1. Did Anthony Shaffer, or anyone on the Able Danger team, obtain a photo of Mohamed Atta from the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), as Shaffer’s interview with Government Security News (GSN) states? The photo of Atta came from an information broker who provided it and others. Shaffer’s comments were made to GSN based on his knowledge at the time, which came from his knowledge...

    Make noise, not war. Liberal activists -- among them graying leftovers from the Vietnam-era antiwar movement -- plan to gather near the Capitol tonight, banging pots and pans to drown out President Bush's State of the Union address. Yesterday, opponents of the Iraq war kicked off their latest round of demonstrations with an "Impeachment Forum" held downtown in a private dining room at Busboys and Poets.

    One of the most excruciating images of the September 11 attacks is the sight of a man who was trapped in one of the World Trade Center towers. Stripped of his suit jacket and tie and hanging on to what appears to be his office curtains, he is seen trying to lower himself outside a window to the floor immediately below. Frantically kicking his legs in an effort to find a purchase, he loses his grip, and falls. That horrific scene and thousands more were the images that awakened a sleeping nation on that long, brutal morning. Instead of overwhelming...
  • Rush Limbaugh: We Have NO Reason to Fear Mrs. Clinton

    RUSH: Bob in Corpus Christi, Texas, welcome to the program, sir. Nice to have you with us. CALLER: Yes. Hi, Rush. About Hillary. RUSH: Yeah. CALLER: You're wrong if you don't think she can win. Be afraid, be very afraid. RUSH: (sighing) CALLER: It's very simple. John Kerry almost won. He lost by three points, and he based his whole campaign on three and a half months in a swift boat. And his background, his voting record was buried. He made his name in VVAW, a bunch of bogus psychopathic radicals. He told a bunch of twisted lies about being...

    House Democrats proposed two bills in 2005 to bring the Fairness Doctrine back—and as a law, rather than a mere agency regulation. New York Democratic representative Louise Slaughter, who introduced the first of the two bills, says that Right-ruled radio is a grave threat to American freedoms, “a waste of good broadcast time, and a waste of our airwaves.” People “may hear whatever they please and whatever they choose,” she tells PBS’s Bill Moyers, in a statement as incoherent as it is illiberal. “And of course they have the right to turn it off. But that’s not good enough either....
  • Rush Limbaugh confused on Supreme Court balance. Still will be 5-4, same as before. Not 6-3.

    Rush said several times last week that confirming Alito changes the balance of the court from 5-4 to 6-3. Alito is replacing Sandra Day O'Connor one of the 5-4 majority. The balance is not changing. We can only hope Stevens and/or Ginsberg retire in the next 2 and 1/2 years. I would not be surprised though that as partisan as they are, they will not. Here are the ages of the current court, including Alito, how long they've served, and who appointed them : Liberals : John Paul Stevens, appointed by Gerald Ford, court term began 12/19/1975. Born Chicago, IL...

    HAPPYBIRTHDAYRUSH Born, January 12, 1951 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Make no mistake. Rush Limbaugh is “The Passion.” He is the passion of conservatism, the very pulse, bounding through the veins of the nation. He produces life with every heartbeat of his show as he scoffs at liberals and gives us his interpretation of conservative truth. His brand of ideology shakes the very foundations of liberalism. He follows in the footsteps of giants, such as George Washington, Thomas Paine, and Ronald Reagan, promoting the ideals of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. He broadcasts affectionately trying to steer growing...
  • Rush Limbaugh: Katrina Media Proves It Cannot Be Trusted

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Well, you know, folks, it's just real simple here. From a purely analytical point of view -- from a purely analytical point of view -- the media prove time and time again they cannot be trusted to report the truth or the facts. We can't count on them anymore. First there was Katrina. We got forged documents, lies about the law regarding the NSA program; now this terrible mine accident. Time and again they report false information and spin. They rely on rumored sources. Somebody shouts out a rumor, they run with it. They take it...
