    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I mentioned Rick Perry earlier. He's out doing the media rounds today, and he's sounding good -- and he had a great exchange with Mike Allen of Politico. Everybody that says, "Ah, Perry is a nice guy, but he looks slow, Rush." I can't tell you the number of people, wherever I go, whose number one complaint about practically every Republican hopeful is that somebody thinks they're stupid or that they sound stupid or that they talk stupid, or that they talk dumb. It's really a powerful, influential thing that has happened here. Some people tell me,...

Sheriff Joe will not back down. Please sign the petition to show we stand behind him.

  • Tucson's ethnic-studies program violates Arizona law, judge rules

    Tucson's Mexican American studies program violates state law, an Arizona administrative law judge ruled Tuesday, paving the way for the program's possible demise. Judge Lewis D. Kowal affirmed a prior decision by the state's schools chief that the Tucson Unified School District's program violates a new law prohibiting divisive ethnic-studies classes. John Huppenthal, the state superintendent of public instruction, had deemed the program in violation in June. Among other things, the law bans classes primarily designed for a particular ethnic group or that "promote resentment toward a race or class of people." The school district appealed Huppenthal's ruling, and testimony...

    With one week left before the Iowa caucuses, Texas Governor Rick Perry is touting his outsider status in a new ad that highlights his opponents' combined 63 years of congressional experience. As the narrator says, "If Washington's the problem, why trust a congressman to fix it?" Prominently featuring fellow GOP contenders Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum; the ad reminds voters that federal legislators are responsible for the earmarks and deficit spending that have led to our unsustainable national debt and that the nation needs a leader who will provide real solutions.

    Seven People Found Dead in Dallas-Area Apartment Published December 25, 2011 GRAPEVINE, Texas – Seven people believed to be related had opened their Christmas gifts and started cleaning up the wrapping paper when they were shot to death in a suburban Texas apartment, police said Sunday. Authorities said they believe the shooter is among the dead, but got a warrant before doing a full search on the small chance that it was otherwise. Four women and three men, aged 18 to 60, were found in an adjoining kitchen and living room area when police entered the apartment around midday, said...

    It has been a bit since I have written a blog, mainly because I only write them when I moved by the heart to do so. I have also been staying off twitter out of disgust for watching so called conservatives judge not by past deeds but only by words that a candidate is spinning today-sorry I donÂ’t tolerate fools easily. Sorry, I am more into judging by actions, the character of a man does not change they just learn to hide it better (& no that was not a veiled swipe at Newtie & Mittens it was a...

    Big Government ^ | 12-19-2011 | Mike Flynn - OP/ED
    December 19, 2011A Time For Choosing: Rick Perry for President Mike Flynn Yes, I’ve seen the debates. And, yes, I’ve watched the “oops” moment probably a dozen times. While he has steadily improved, Rick Perry is not a skilled debater. Seeing him debate is like watching a high-wire act, where each moment is tense with the fear that the performer could slip and fall. I get it. But, when did debate performance become our sole criteria for picking a President? When did the RNC decide to team up with the legacy media and turn the nomination contest into an almost...
  • Obama Pushes NCLR Official With Ties To Spy As U.S. Ambassador

    Judicial Watch ^ | 12/07/2011 | Judicial Watch
    President Obama is determined to push through a foreign ambassadorship for a controversial figure whose close ties to a spy from a terrorist-sponsoring nation derailed a similar post for the same aspiring diplomat in the Clinton Administration. The tale actually dates back to the late 1990s when Bill Clinton nominated Puerto Rican activist Mari Carmen Aponte, a former board member of the leftist National Council of la Raza (NCLR) and Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund (PRLDEF), as ambassador to the Dominican Republic. Aponte had worked as a volunteer in the White House personnel office and helped raise campaign...

    The Temple Independent School District (TISD), near Fort Hood, recently sent home flyers with children. The flyers were promoting 'College Vocational Night for Hispanics' and even informed people not to allow concerns about 'Residency Issues' to deter them from coming. Basically, illegal aliens are being invited to the event. For good measure, each attendee will receive one food voucher per family per month. Initially, your outrage might be directed at the school district (mine was) but remember, our Governor here in Texas (Rick Perry) signed legislation that made it perfectly legal for illegal aliens to attend Texas colleges at in-state...

    CONCORD, N.H. – Rick Perry transitioned from pushing his immigration message to slamming the link between Wall Street and Washington, D.C. Wednesday along with urging the New Hampshire legislature to override a veto on right-to-work legislation. “If you pass into law a right- to-work law, you may join my home state and take over the title of the state that’s creating more jobs in American than any place in this country,” Perry said to a standing ovation by Republicans at the New Hampshire State House. “Unions have their proper role in America but you shouldn’t be forced to join one...

    Reading many, many, comments about Rick Perry it has ocurred to me that a great many FReepers don't really know Rick Perry. They know of him from 30 second blurbs, bad sound bites and poor debate performances. This is not the real Rick Perry. You can get a much better picture of the man by watching him in one on one interviews, live speeches and town hall settings. Governor Perry has a plan to restore our country to greatness and it's worth hearing. He's got a complete tax reform program, a jobs and energy plan that go hand in hand....

On Black Friday, the White House released more visitor log info — trumpeting disclosures it has fought tooth and nail. I’ve started looking through the data. And you can, too, right here:
  • So, why DID we have to hear about a no-fly zone over Syria from Rick Perry?

    HotAir Green Room ^ | 27th November 2011 | J. E. Dyer
    The weird thing about Governor Perry’s “Syrian no-fly-zone” moment was not that he talked about a no-fly zone (NFZ) with the Fox news pundits, and then reiterated his comments in the GOP foreign policy debate on Tuesday. The weird thing is that there seems, in fact, to be a proposal for a Syrian NFZ – one in which the US would reportedly provide logistic support – and it took a GOP candidate to tell us about it. Perry took a lot of heat for “bringing up” the idea of an NFZ for Syria. But foreign news agencies have been furiously...

    COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — Rick Perry arrived on the campus of Texas A&M University in the tumultuous fall of 1968, cut his hair short, regulation military style, and donned a uniform. College students across America were rising up against the Vietnam War, but Mr. Perry, a member of the Corps of Cadets here, would not be among them. “There will be no Columbia, no Berkeley here,” the university president, Earl Rudder, declared that fall. When a small band of antiwar protesters took to the steps of the Memorial Student Center, a building ... “I don’t want to use the word...

    NAPLES, FL -- Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich defended his immigration policy after days of criticism from other GOP contenders – reiterating that he does not support amnesty -- on Friday night before his largest crowd yet on the campaign trail. "I am not for amnesty for anyone. I am not for a path to citizenship for anybody who got here illegally," Gingrich told the crowd of roughly 750 people, many of whom were forced to stand in the hallway........... "I think the vast majority [of illegal immigrants] will go home and should go home and then should reapply. I do...

    Mexico City – The bodies of 26 men were found inside two SUVs and an automobile abandoned on a busy avenue in Guadalajara, one of Mexico's largest cities, prosecutors said Thursday. The vehicles, which had Mexico City tags, were left at an intersection in the Vallarta San Jorge section of Guadalajara, the capital of the western Mexican state of Jalisco, the state Attorney General's office said. Investigators initially said 23 bodies were at the crime scene, but they later found three more inside the vehicles, Jalisco Attorney General Tomas Coronado said. The crime scene is near a supermarket and the...

    The telegenic Texan took two steps forward sitting in the “center chair” on Fox Monday evening. One step backward too alas, but more about that in a bit. Gov Perry was relaxed and alert as he fielded a variety of questions. He smartly used his answers to remind conservatives why they should consider him. This is a man who is a quick study and a formidable politician. Instead of just Texas this and Texas that he pointed out that the Lone Star state all by its lonesome is the 13th largest economy in the world. A nice way to pivot...
