    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: As you know, ladies and gentlemen, yesterday we started a new Facebook page: Rush Babes for America. And, by the way, the word "babes" is entirely respectful in its usage here. There's no condescension meant here, and every woman in this audience knows that. But we have put up a Facebook page, and we are already close to having more friends than the entire membership of the National Organization for Women. The National Organization for Women has been out there drumming up membership for decades. The Rush Babes for America Facebook page has been up for 24...

    Elizabeth Warren, who also goes by her Indian name, "Lies on Race Box," is in big heap-um trouble. The earnest, reform-minded liberal running for Senate against Scott Brown, R-Mass., lied about being part-Cherokee to get a job at Harvard. Harvard took full advantage of Warren's lie, bragging to The Harvard Crimson about her minority status during one of the near-constant student protests over insufficient "diversity" in the faculty. Warren also listed herself as an Indian in law school faculty directories and, just last month, said, "I am very proud of my Native American heritage." Except, oops, she has no more...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Breaking news (of sorts) from Fox. It's Ed Henry reporting that Obama is going to come out of the closet, maybe, on gay marriage. Megyn Kelly just spoke with Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry about Obama and the White House policy on gay marriage. Megyn Kelly said, "What's going on? Does anybody there have the slightest clue what's going on?" HENRY: We have some new information. As you know, the president, uh, said in December of 2010 that he was "evolving" on this issue. We're getting new information now suggesting that he is ready perhaps to...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Americans, ladies and gentlemen, are taking their country back -- and they're doing it one election at a time. As was evidenced in Wisconsin, Americans are not afraid of union goons. They're not impressed with a slow-jamming Preezy. They aren't intimidated by the media anymore. From reconfirming the meaning of marriage, to showing support for a great Wisconsin governor, to humiliating a sitting Democrat president with a huge turnout for a convicted felon, voters demonstrated that the power attributed to Barack Obama and the State-Controlled Media has been overestimated. Conventional wisdom was nuked yesterday. Tea Party dead...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Democrats did turn out, however. Well, they didn't turn out in Wisconsin. They didn't turn out in North Carolina. But guess where they did turn out? Democrats turned out big time in West Virginia in the presidential primary to vote for an inmate. A federal prisoner, the Boyd Crowder of West Virginia. Federal Inmate 11593-051. There's a picture of the guy. Let me see if it's still up. Let me check real quick. Yep, there's a picture of the guy on Drudge, a picture of Inmate 11593-051. This is the guy that gave Obama a run for...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I'm gonna break this down in even more detail as the program unfolds. Lugar has issued a very lengthy and quite telling statement. Lugar is comparing his defeat to the end of reason, the end of the Republican Party, the end of compromise, the end of people working together. Lugar is saying that his defeat is a bad thing. It's gonna lead to partisanship and rancor. It's gonna lead to the end. The Senate is gonna descend now. It's not gonna be nearly the august body it has been. Not because he's not there. He's not that...

But I think I'm just gonna go ahead and report what happened, 'cause I think you do remember.

  • "Head Start" an Abysmal Failure for Kids, a Spectacular Success for Teachers

    Head Start, a preschool program for low-income kids has been a spectacular success, not for kids, but for teachers and teachers' unions. Please consider Miami-Dade County seeks to unload Head Start program, salaries For more than four decades, Miami-Dade County officials have managed Head Start, the storied preschool program for children from low-income families. But the county now wants out — and “generous” salaries are partly to blame. On average, Miami-Dade paid its Head Start teachers $76,860 in salary and fringe benefits in 2011, county records show. That’s about 90 percent higher than the second highest-paying Head Start provider in...

    Townhall.com ^ | May 9, 2012 | Daniel J. Mitchell
    With both France and Greece deciding to jump out of the left-wing frying pan into the even-more-left-wing fire, European fiscal policy has become quite a controversial topic. But I find this debate and discussion rather tedious and unrewarding, largely because it pits advocates of Keynesian spending (the so-called “growth” camp) against supporters of higher taxes (the “austerity” camp).Since I’m a big fan of nations lowering taxes and reducing the burden of government spending, I would like to see the pro-tax hike and the pro-spending sides both lose (wasn’t that Kissinger’s attitude about the Iran-Iraq war?). Indeed, this is why I...

    For a campaign that has been up-and-running since just about January 21, 2009, the Obama crowd did not have a good "official" first week. Last weekend, Barack Obama officially launched his campaign for re-election at a rally on the campus of Ohio State University. A couple of things were wrong with the event. About 14,000 people showed up, but the arena holds many more and the traveling press made much of the empty seats. That's not Obama's fault. It's the fault of the advance team and the campaign, but there you are. During his remarks, Obama lashed out at Republicans...

    WASHINGTON - It should be clear by now that President Obama is running against the U.S. economy and as of last week the economy was beating him. A couple of weeks ago, as Mitt Romney was locking up the Republican presidential nomination, Obama's anemic polling numbers were hitting 50 percent, up from the mid-to-upper 40s and his prospects were looking up. Then in the past week, two bleak economic reports knocked him off his shaky pedestal and he was back in the 40s again and in a dead heat with Romney. The salient characteristic of Obama's presidency has been a...

    The 23-year-old photograph is a stunning record of Chinese courage past and an insight into China's present political turmoil. Unless China's government chooses liberty and just law over tyranny and crony corruption, the picture prefigures a bloody future history. I am referring to one of 1989's most famous photos: the lone Chinese protestor in Beijing's Tiananmen Square who stands in front of a People's Liberation Army (PLA) main battle tank. The dramatic confrontation occurred June 5, 1989, the day after PLA gunfire, at the order of Communist leader Deng Xiaoping, killed some 2,000 demonstrators in the square. Everyone in China...

    What does President Barack Obama know about the economy and what the government can and cannot do to create jobs? A fair measure is the economic stimulus plan Obama pushed through Congress in his first month in office. Did it work? On Jan. 9, 2009, less than two weeks before Obama's inauguration, Christina Romer, who would chair Obama's Council of Economic Advisers, and Jared Bernstein, an adviser to Vice President-elect Joe Biden, published the incoming administration's analysis of the "job impact" they expected from Obama's stimulus. At the time, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national seasonally adjusted...
  • Mormon Doctrine Leads to Socialism?

    Now that Mitt Romney is the presumptive Republican nominee for president, the left is increasing its attacks on his Mormon religion, hoping to distract voters into focusing on perceived negatives about Mormonism. The latest attack is shrewdly done. Instead of directly attacking Mormonism, which could look bad, the left is claiming that Mormonism is really socialist. Last month, the far left website Salon ran an article entitled, “When Mormons Were Socialists.” It relied completely upon a deliberate misinterpretation of a few verses in the Book of Mormon. The author claimed that Mormon doctrine about events in the first century...

    Townhall.com ^ | May 9, 2012 | Michael Medved
    If Mitt Romney succeeds in his quest for the presidency, the media will focus on his status as the first Mormon in the White House. But it’s even more significant that he’d represent the last of another controversial cohort: the final Baby Boomer to occupy the Oval Office, or even to top the ticket of a major political party. After more than twenty years of dominating the national political scene, the narcissistic children of the ‘60s finally prepare to amble toward retirement, leaving the nation’s highest office to leaders from less polarized and self-righteous generations. Ironically, the Boomers’ last hurrah...

    While President Obama is out on the campaign trail talking about how bad things were four years ago, and how we have to go “forward” to his second term to see just how great things are going to be in the next four years, the biggest problem he’s got is the here and now. Real GDP in the second quarter stalled at 2.2 percent. There were a paltry 115,000 new jobs in April. The labor force shrank by 342,000 for the month, and the 63.6 percent labor-force participation rate is now the lowest since 1981. There are roughly 23 million...

    - FrontPage Magazine - http://frontpagemag.com - Unemployment Numbers ScamPosted By Arnold Ahlert On May 8, 2012 @ 12:50 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 17 Comments When the jobs data were released last week, it was revealed that only 115,000 new jobs were created, well below the 165,000 predicted by the media-anointed economic “experts,” and significantly below the 125,000 jobs-per-month pace required just to keep pace with the number of people entering the work force. Yet in an apparent paradox, the unemployment rate dropped from 8.2 percent to 8.1 percent. Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney explains half of it. “There is something about that 8.1 percent figure...

    The New York Times really loathes Rupert Murdoch. The Gray Lady almost achieved nirvana on the front page the other day when a group of laborites in the British Parliament asserted in a "damning report" that Murdoch was "not fit" for major media ownership. Bill Keller, recently the paper's executive editor, devoted his latest column to Fox News with the headline "Murdoch's Pride Is America's Poison." The man who edited The New York Times is blunt: "I would argue that -- at least for Americans -- Fox News is Murdoch's most toxic legacy." If that's not ridiculous enough, try this:...
