Rush Limbaugh Rocks CPAC

From Townhall.com and Matt Lewis:

“Calling it his first ever address to the nation, Rush Limbaugh rocked the house at the Conservative Action Conference (CPAC) today.

From the time he entered the room to The Pretenders ‘My City Was Gone’ (his theme), to the time he exited the stage, Limbaugh inspired the over-flow, packed audience, and enjoyed countless standing ovations.”

 I can’t wait to watch this online!  It is linked up at Rush’s website and he’s posted the transcript as well.  The twits at the Huffington Post are all abuzz about Rush “doubling down” on wanting Obama to fail–their words, not mine.  In my opinion, if a speech by a Conservative gets those mental midgets all worked up, it was probably a great speech!  [I’m not posting a link to their site.  If you want to read that trash, you can find it yourself!  Plus, I don’t want my comment box to be innundated by liberal fruitcakes because of an errant pingback.]

Rush’s First Nationally Televised Address to the Nation:
Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) Keynote Speech

A quick excerpt:

“I want to tell you who conservatives are. We conservatives have not done a good enough job of just laying out basically who we are because we make the mistake of assuming people know. What they know is largely incorrect based on the way we are portrayed in pop culture, in the Drive-By Media, by the Democrat Party.

Let me tell you who we conservatives are: We love people. [Applause] When we look out over the United States of America, when we are anywhere, when we see a group of people, such as this or anywhere, we see Americans. We see human beings. We don’t see groups. We don’t see victims. We don’t see people we want to exploit. What we see — what we see is potential. We do not look out across the country and see the average American, the person that makes this country work. We do not see that person with contempt. We don’t think that person doesn’t have what it takes. We believe that person can be the best he or she wants to be if certain things are just removed from their path like onerous taxes, regulations and too much government. [Applause]

We want every American to be the best he or she chooses to be. We recognize that we are all individuals. We love and revere our founding documents, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. [Applause] We believe that the preamble to the Constitution contains an inarguable truth that we are all endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, among them life. [Applause] Liberty, Freedom. [Applause] And the pursuit of happiness. [Applause] Those of you watching at home may wonder why this is being applauded. We conservatives think all three are under assault. [Applause] Thank you. Thank you.”

Rush’s open letter to President Obama regarding the [un]Fairness Doctrine

Posted by Liberty on February 20, 2009

Mr. President, Keep the Airwaves Free

“As a former president of the Harvard Law Review and a professor at the University of Chicago Law School, you are more familiar than most with the purpose of the Bill of Rights: to protect the citizen from the possible excesses of the federal government. The First Amendment says, in part, that ‘Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.’ The government is explicitly prohibited from playing a role in refereeing among those who speak or seek to speak. We are, after all, dealing with political speech — which, as the Framers understood, cannot be left to the government to police.”

Rush has called Obama out.  The time is right to get the President’s stance on the Fairness Doctrine clarified.  His surrogates have been vocally in favor of this unconstitutional censorship in recent weeks.  This issue is critical to Conservatives and to the outcomes of the 2010 midterm elections.  If Conservative talk radio is shut down, it will help solidify Democrat control for generations to come.  The question is, will Obama vote “present?”

This is really pathetic

Posted by Liberty on January 30, 2009

Switch to digital TV may leave many in the dark

I’m warning you, if you have sympathy that some technologically-challenged people are no longer going to be able to watch “Oprah” or “The Young and the Restless” or “The Price is Right” over their damn rabbit ears…just click the back button now.

“That so many viewers around the country risk losing something as basic as a free television signal is a function, at least in part, of the government’s failure to anticipate that those most affected would be among the nation’s most frail and vulnerable.”

Do we as a society care more about “basic rights” like being able to watch pop culture crap for free than about rights actually enumerated in the Bill of Rights?  We’re already seeing an assualt on Rush Limbaugh’s freedom of speech [and by extension, the free expression of all Conservatives].  I can only imagine how badly our Second Amendment rights will be degraded during the course of the Obama administration.  Our very safety and sovereignty is at risk on the Southern border and we are changing courses against Islamic terrorism as well.  But heaven forbid that these old fogies should have to take responsibility for themselves to ensure that they remain entertained.

Bipartisan stimulus

Posted by Liberty on January 29, 2009

Rush has a great op-ed in today’s Wall Street Journal!

My Bipartisan Stimulus

“Keynesian economists believe government spending on ‘shovel-ready’ infrastructure projects — schools, roads, bridges — is the best way to stimulate our staggering economy. Supply-side economists make an equally persuasive case that tax cuts are the surest and quickest way to create permanent jobs and cause an economy to rebound. That happened under JFK, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. We know that when tax rates are cut in a recession, it brings an economy back.

Recent polling indicates that the American people are in favor of both approaches.

Notwithstanding the media blitz in support of the Obama stimulus plan, most Americans, according to a new Rasmussen poll, are skeptical. Rasmussen finds that 59% fear that Congress and the president will increase government spending too much. Only 17% worry they will cut taxes too much. Since the American people are not certain that the Obama stimulus plan is the way to go, it seems to me there’s an opportunity for genuine compromise. At the same time, we can garner evidence on how to deal with future recessions, so every occurrence will no longer become a matter of partisan debate.”

And:

“Fifty-three percent of American voters voted for Barack Obama; 46% voted for John McCain, and 1% voted for wackos. Give that 1% to President Obama. Let’s say the vote was 54% to 46%. As a way to bring the country together and at the same time determine the most effective way to deal with recessions, under the Obama-Limbaugh Stimulus Plan of 2009: 54% of the $900 billion — $486 billion — will be spent on infrastructure and pork as defined by Mr. Obama and the Democrats; 46% — $414 billion — will be directed toward tax cuts, as determined by me.”

Rush’s plan is that once both approaches have been implemented, we will then compare the results.  Once and for all, there would be definitive evidence as to what works: increased government spending or tax cuts.  Note, the comparison would be of results, not intentions.  So much of what liberal Democrats [and government in general] do is guided by intentions, not results.

The tolerant, open-minded Left attacks Rush Limbaugh

Posted by Liberty on January 28, 2009

Democrats Start Petition Against Rush Limbaugh

What is constitutionally protected free speech?  If you’re a liberal, it means calling former President George W. Bush “Hitler”…or worse.  It means calling Sarah Palin a “bimbo”…or worse.  It is wearing a t-shirt that says “Bong Hits for Jesus.”  It is pseudo art exhibits like crucifixes suspended in jars of urine or throwing shoes covered in red paint at a giant picture of former President Bush.  Free speech is for Jon Stewart, Al Franken, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann…not for Rush Limbaugh.  Free speech is for the Dixie Chicks and every Hollywood twit who has yet to figure out that nobody cares what they think…just so long as they look pretty.  And saying anything negative about the messiah, Barack Obama?  That is crossing the line!

“If you had any questions remaining about the war liberals have launched to end conservative talk radio they should be answered by a petition the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee began ‘to show Rush Limbaugh and all of the Republicans what they’re up against if they start attacking President Obama.'”

That’s right…the tolerant, open-minded, free speech crusaders who will defend damn near anything [as long as it is offensive, crude and anti-Republican] are gunning for Rush Limbaugh.  Rush had the audacity to say that he hopes Obama fails.  And I agree with him.  Obama’s policies are counter to the principles that America was founded upon and will have disastrous effects upon our economy and our society as a whole.  Rush has the right to say things like this just as we all do. 

But the Left aren’t content to just live and let live as far as free speech is concerned.  They are going to be pushing hard for the Fairness Doctrine because they want to shut Rush down.  The Fairness Doctrine won’t apply to print media, network tv news, cable tv news or any of the other places that the Left dominates our culture.  It will just muzzle Conservative talk radio.  That’s fair, right?  Of course it’s not fair and the liberal hypocrites know it…they just lack the intellectual honesty to admit it.

Inauguration-mania

Posted by Liberty on January 12, 2009

Rush is calling it the “Immaculate Inauguration.”  Michelle Malkin calls it “Inaugur-A-Palooza.”  I think the word “mania” has to apply somewhere to the shameless crap that the MSM is calling “inauguration coverage.”  Michelle Malkin has linked to another blog [http://www.julescrittenden.com/] where there’s a complete compendium of the MSM’s fawning, obsequious, laudatory, self-congratulatory, worshipful,…[insert your favorite applicable adjective <here>] “objective coverage” of the Obamanauguration. 

Inaugur-A-Palooza!

A.W.R. Hawkins takes Colin Powell to task in Human Events

Posted by Liberty on December 18, 2008

A RINO vs. El Rushbo

Bravo Mr. Hawkins.  Just in case you missed it, Colin Powell was highly critical of Rush Limbaugh in an interview on CNN.  At one point he said, “Can we continue to listen to Rush Limbaugh?”  Mr. Powell, thank God more people listen to Rush than listen to you!

A.W.R. Hawkins’ article contrasting Powell’s political perspective with Limbaugh’s is terrific.

“Powell, like former Bush speech writer Michael Gerson, wants to remake conservatism into something without form or substance, something that is liberalism in all but name. They say the only conservatism that can be effective in future elections is conservatism divorced from conservative principles.

Powell and Gerson — and too many other phony conservatives — are the problem, not the solution. It was by their philosophy and political strategy that the Republican Party ended up abandoning conservatism in favor of McCainism. And that was the path to failure, not victory. “
