  • Pelosi Makes Sense to Low-Information Voters (AKA Ignorant Voters)

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Have you heard about what Pelosi said? Since we're talking about the Democrats, this is relevant, and I've got a companion story to go along with this sound bite. Let me tell you the companion story first. I guess this comes under the umbrella of surreal, Twilight Zone, living in two different worlds. We're not even on the planet. I think these Democrats are on that asteroid that might be getting close to earth because of global warming. Lori Montgomery. This is not a blog. This is the Washington Post headline: "Obama: Job of Debt Reduction is...

    North Carolina --( Rights Supporters: “The Great Gun Debate” I just won in Winston-Salem was a sobering experience, and I came away from it both worried and energized. I say “worried” because I saw more starkly than ever that what we face is not about semi-automatic firearms or even guns in general, but rather a full-on assault on individual liberty. Held in the ritzy “Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art” by WXII-TV, what GRNC volunteers found when we arrived was a cabal of limousine liberals, aging hippies, and hard-core “community organizers.” When WXII created the panel, producers did their best to...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Christopher Dorner, the fired LA cop is still on the loose. If you hear that Dorner is anywhere near where you live, based on what I've heard from the left in recent weeks, the safest thing you can do is turn in your guns. That's what will make you safe. I've heard every Democrat, I've heard the media say this, that the way we're gonna make this country safe is for everybody to get rid of their guns. So if this Dorner guy, who's already killed three cops, shows up in your neighborhood, somehow make it known...

    the hill ^ | 2/11/2013 | By Jennifer Martinez
    The White House is poised to release an executive order aimed at thwarting cyberattacks against critical infrastructure on Wednesday, two people familiar with the matter told The Hill. The highly anticipated directive from President Obama is expected to be released at a briefing Wednesday morning at the U.S. Department of Commerce, where senior administration officials will provide an update about cybersecurity policy. The executive order would establish a voluntary program in which companies operating critical infrastructure would elect to meet cybersecurity best practices and standards crafted, in part, by the government. Observers are expecting the president to briefly mention the...

    RUSH: So yesterday on CNN, Candy Crowley asked the panel on her program if the comments of Dr. Benjamin Carson at the National Prayer Breakfast were inappropriate. Actually, she asked if his comments were appropriate. Now, before we play for you the Candy Crowley sound bite from CNN yesterday, I want to go back. We've got two sound bites from Dr. Benjamin Carson. He's the Johns Hopkins University hospital pediatric neurosurgery director. He's a great guy. Great, great family story, from Detroit. Here are the two excerpts that we aired last week from his remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast...

    The Lookout via Yahoo News ^ | 11 Feb 2013 | Dylan Stableford
    Are police using drones in the manhunt for Christopher Dorner? According to a report by a British newspaper, they are. On Sunday, the Express quoted a "senior police source" who said the "thermal imaging cameras the drones use may be our only hope of finding him—on the ground, it's like looking for a needle in a haystack." Dorner, the 33-year-old former naval and LAPD officer turned triple-murder suspect, has been at the center of a massive manhunt stretching from the San Bernadino Mountains—where his burned-out pickup truck was found last week—to the Mexican border. In a manifesto posted online earlier...

    Did President Obama nominate an Islamic convert with a decades old connection to the most anti-American variant of that religion to a post no less potent than the director of the CIA? That is the hot charge against John Brennan that gained rapid viral traction over the weekend because of comments made by an ex-FBI agent known for his efforts to expose radical Islamists. John Guandolo first made the accusation during a recent radio interview. Today he repeated the charge during an interview with TheBlaze in which we pressed him to provide details that might substantiate his case. There is...

    The Nahal Brigade is preparing for its deployment along the northern border – currently, one of the most tense borders – where it will be faced with a disintegrating Syria, and a Hizbullah that growing stronger. The commander of the green unit, Colonel Yehuda Fuchs, said it is clear that if the IDF takes action against these threats, his soldiers will be on the front line. "We are psychologically ready for battle in Lebanon," he said.

    Thank you for taking the time to contact me about recent proposals related to guns. I appreciate hearing from you about this issue. As you know, on December 14, 2012, an individual in Newtown, Connecticut forced his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School and opened fire on teachers and staff in the building. In total, the perpetrator murdered 20 students between the ages of six and seven years old, as well as six adults, many of whom heroically sought to stop the shooter and save the lives of children. Like many Americans, I was deeply affected by the scope and...

    I want to call this the feelgood story of the day but it’s the opposite. There are feelgood moments --- Bin Laden ends up with a few extra postmortem bullet holes, and don't miss the conversation the SEALs have on their way to the first briefing about the mission --- but ultimately it's the tale of a hero abandoned. No pension(!), no health care(!!), family troubles, little help transitioning to the private sector, and eternal worry about reprisals from jihadis. Everyone wishes they could have been the one to pull the trigger on Osama; see how you feel about that...

    Biden: We’re counting on ‘legitimate media’ for successful gun control effort February 11, 2013 | 1:46 pm During a press conference on gun safety in Philadelphia, Vice President Joe Biden said that any reports that suggest that he was trying to take weapons away from gun owners was a “bunch of malarkey.” "I know that's a word that you've never heard before, although it's now in the dictionary," Biden boasted. Biden said that it was important for the media to dissuade the American public from the idea that the Obama administration was prepared to do something unconstitutional on guns. “To...

    The world currency system is riding down the road to catastrophe, The world already has entered a currency war that began in 2010 on the heels of the Federal Reserve’s massive easing program, he tells Wall Street Journal Digital Network. Since then, plenty of nations have joined in, including Brazil, Switzerland and Japan, says Rickards, author of “Currency Wars: The Making of the Next Global Crises.” “All major central banks are easing,” he says. “Eventually so much money will be printed that this will lead to inflation. The endgame is collapse of the international monetary system — sometime sooner than...

    The threat of global warming may stretch so far beyond Earth that it affects meteorites millions of miles away in space -- at least according to one CNN anchor. “Talk about something else that’s falling from the sky and that is an asteroid. What’s coming our way? Is this an effect of, perhaps, of global warming, or is this just some meteoric occasion?” CNN’s Deborah Feyerick asked Bill “The Science Guy” Nye, head of the Planetary Society, in a Saturday segment.

    On Thursday, the Dallas News reported: Three grenades exploded Thursday evening in Nuevo Laredo, just feet from the U.S. Consulate office, sources in the Mexican border city said. No injuries were reported, but the explosions rattled the neighborhood, as locals scurried for cover amid a firefight between what’s believed to be members of the Zetas criminal group and their former allies, the Gulf cartel, which is making a push to reclaim the territory. The two groups appear to be battling, leaving a trail of killings and burned houses. In recent days, sources said, seven people have been killed — three...

    Washington, D.C. – The United States Army is being threatened with a lawsuit after a chaplain allegedly prayed to the Heavenly Father during an event at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas, which offended an atheist soldier in attendance. The Huffington Post reports that Staff Sergeant Victoria Gettman is unpleased with the response that she has received from her superiors in regard to complaints that she had lodged over the prayer, which was delivered last September. Gettman and a number of other soldiers were attending a mandatory suicide prevention session, which concluded with a prayer. The prayer itself was...
