    In 1965 radio legend Paul Harvey first aired his now-famous piece entitled If I were the Devil which examined which steps the Great Deceiver would take in order to win the battle for man's soul. The agenda listed matched (frighteningly) realities of an American culture  which has gone from a God-fearing and industrious nation into one ripe for misery and plunder.  Like so many Progressives, Earl Ofari Hutchinson used the lead-up to the midterm elections to warn in the "Huffington Post" that A Republican Wave Will Further Sink Black America and throughout the year the Democratic Party has made ceaseless attempts to paint conservatives and...

  • If I Were the Devil

    If I were the devil…If I were the Prince of Darkness, I’d want to engulf the whole world in darkness, and I would know in the darkest recesses of my blackened heart that I have succeeded. I’ve subverted the churches, first with a campaign of whispers, then with an outright assault, using the crimes of a few to impugn the many, until I had convinced the masses that religion was corrupt, that its teachings were outdated, that its message was one of hatred and bigotry. With the wisdom of a serpent, I whispered to you as I whispered to Eve:...

    Happy Birthday America! And I wish to offer my deep, deep thanks to our founding fathers for giving us the gift of liberty. And I see the Egyptians have decided to celebrate along with us this year. Unfortunately, Egypt demonstrates what happens if your Declaration of Independence was not such a finely-crafted, well thought out articulation of political philosophy: you end up with a constitution that’s not as keen on liberty as ours. In that event, the next thing you know, you’re being governed by another tyrannical dictator. I’m not saying that what’s happening in Egypt could never happen here:...

    God Made a Farmer Ram Trucks Super Bowl Commercial with Paul HarveyChrysler’s Super Bowl Ram Truck commercial praising the American farmer was an unexpected big hit and is still being replayed around the country on talk radio. Rich Lowry and Peggy Noonan both contrasted the authenticity of that commercial fantasy with the falsity of the real event. And why not? Even if the clip was a bit corny and overdone, the late Paul Harvey was a masterful throaty narrator in the romantic age before the onset of America’s now ubiquitous metrosexual nasal intonation. Harvey just didn’t sound different from the...

    An iconic radio voice took the cake, as Dodge Ram’s “So God Made a Farmer” spot with Paul Harvey as the voice over was the highest-rated commercial during Super Bowl XLVII according to ADBOWL, the original advertising ranking website for consumers developed in 2002 by McKee Wallwork & Company. It wasn’t flashy or filled with special effects, but Dodge Ram’s Super Bowl spot featuring the late radio broadcaster Paul Harvey’s tribute to U.S. farmers won the hearts and minds of viewers Sunday night. The two-minute spot featured a series of stark photos of farmers at work. Along with a montage...

    Not too long ago, I asked the question: How many warnings of the revolution have you missed? It's not a coincidence that Harvey said these things during the last(thankfully failed) attempt to steal our liberty - the 60's. I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.” To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”. In the ears of...

    For the better part of six decades, Paul Harvey spun tales on the radio in his staccato baritone, entertaining up to 24 million listeners a day with folksy vignettes ending in unexpected twists. And now, the rest of the story. Previously confidential files show that Harvey, who died last February at 90, enjoyed a 20-year friendship with FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, often submitting advance copies of his radio script for comment and approval. Harvey wrote Hoover and his deputies regularly. Hoover, in turn, helped Harvey with research, suggested changes in scripts and showered the broadcaster with effusive praise. But...

    Paul Harvey’s death Saturday did not garner major headlines or sustained attention. Matt Drudge had the related story link off his page within about 12 hours of when the news broke. At one level, it’s not at all surprising. The man was 90. Though he soldiered on, he was past his peak. His vocal cord problems in 2001 and his bout with pneumonia in 2008 had America mentally prepared for the inevitable. But those who are unfamiliar with Paul Harvey need to learn about more than his tremendous career success. They need to understand and recognize his significance. Coming within...

    One of the great voices of authentic heartland America fell silent today. Paul Harvey was doing nationwide conservative talk radio for decades before anyone thought of it as conservative talk radio. Everybody recognizes his distinctive, quirky voice with the…….odd pauses and offbeat emphases, but his success was about far more than his distinctive diction. Paul Harvey put news out there that no other outlet touched. His Paul Harvey News and Comment scoured the wires for random stuff–and ideologically inconvenient stuff– you just didn’t hear on the Big Three mainstream TV news, and crammed it all in to crisp five minute...

    Paul Harvey is gone. Harvey was a giant in the industry of radio broadcasting but he was a singularly different sort of news reporter. In a day when the goal of every other broadcaster seems to be to dive straight to the lowest common denominator, to celebrate to low born and venal, Harvey’s was always to uplift the listener and to celebrate the greatness of America. With his easily parodied style, his was a distinctive voice. He was from a time when the sound was important, the delivery the thing. And deliver he did. His well used pause and distinctive...

I have noted that Fred got the gay marriage issue precisely right – a constitutional amendment which does not require states to give full faith and credit to gay marriages is...

What if an oil tanker had an accident and spilled a large quantity of oil. Should the owner of the tanker have to pay for cleanup and be able to avoid it by saying “I just made a mistake”? If you run a red light and hurt someone should you be able to avoid paying for the...

    I got a chain letter on this, thought I'd share it. It is well written and its right as always. Paul Harvey and Prayer Paul Harvey says: I don't believe in Santa Claus, but I'm not going to sue somebody for singing a Ho-Ho-Ho song in December. I don't agree with Darwin, but I didn't go out and hire a lawyer when my high school teacher taught his theory of evolution. Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not be endangered because someone says a 30-second prayer before a football game. So what's the big deal? It's not like...

    Did anyone hear the end of Paul Harvey's radio show today? He quoted Winston Churchill who said, after the bombing of Pearl Harbor that Amercans "did not get where they were by being made of sugar candy". He tied that in with what happened on 9/11, and said "I've been choking on this one for weeks, and I'd like to get it out".
  • Conservatives Compete; Liberals Cooperate (What does THAT mean?)

    Coming to work today, I was listening to Paul Harvey when I heard him say; "Conservatives compete; Liberals cooperate." Now I trust Paul Harvey, so I think he was using a quote, or being sarcastic, but as I tried to consider what that meant, I just became more and more confused. Conservatives compete, Liberals cooperate...... Man, that seems so wrong on so many levels.
  • (Vanity) Paul Harvey Show Screw-up?

    Anyone else notice the 15 seconds or so of dead air that occured during Paul Harvey's show today? I was listening to it on the way home for lunch. Paul let out a strange sigh right during the middle of a general steel commercial. Then, nothing for about 15 seconds. I stopped the car and my heart raced. I was terrified that he suffered a stroke or something during his broadcast. Then he came back on the air, mentioning something about starting all over again. Then he made a comment about having a story in his hands that he just...

    Paul Harvey Tells It Like It Is Ouch, Paul Harvey commentary (I decided to transcribe it. These are Paul Harvey's exact words, not mine, but I agree wholeheartedly) Politics Advantage Out They can say I have a plan, and yet never define it. Incumbent politicians doing the best they can have exposed their own limitations, but the politicians on the outside wanting in can claim I have a plan for winning in Iraq . They never have to name it. I have a plan for saving social security. I have a plan for full employment. I have a plan for...
