Media fixated on Robin Williams....not Iraq!

Recently a caller asked Rush Limbaugh a great question:

CALLER: Yeah. My pleasure. You know, I don't want to sound insensitive, and Robin Williams was absolutely a wonderful talent. But, you know, it used to be that the media would sort of downplay celebrity suicide, which I think was actually a good and right thing. I just feel like they're making a huge deal about this when there's so much other news like Iraq, Israel, Missouri, et cetera, that they should be focusing on. My question is, what do you think the political reason for their doing this is?

RUSH: Well, interesting question. You know, I'm the guy that says there's politics in everything and you've gotta be able to spot it, and you're right, there is here. This really is an example of the dedication the media has to pop culture events and how important it is in the eyes of their audience. Whereas in Washington, the media thinks the world is on fire because of what's happening in the Middle East, your average TMZ viewer thinks the world doesn't make any sense anymore because Robin Williams committed suicide. The thing I worry about, I really do, they're making such heroism out of this that I hope it doesn't inspire a lot of copycats by people seeking the same kind of fame. And that's been one of my big concerns with social media from the get-go. I saw all these people just giving up every bit of information about themselves, just this desire to have everybody know everything about them, and we know that one of the allures of pop culture media is this desire to be famous and have pop culture media talk about you. And this is one way to do it, obviously. To kill yourself is one way to get the media to spend a lot of time talking about you, if you want to be talked about. I hope it doesn't spawn a bunch of copycats. Source

Obama bombs Iraq!

The United States dropped laser-guided bombs on ISIS artillery in Iraq on Friday, the Pentagon said — the beginning of airstrikes threatened a day earlier by President Barack Obama.

"You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq." --John Kerry

Obama says.....

On April 9, 2011, I produced the following video which has since proved to be a pretty accurate foreshadowing of President Obama's blueprint for America....in his own words. We are without excuse! The following are comments the President made which will clearly demonstrate his passion for American citizen sacrifice and behavior modification in this current long season of economic malaise. Remember, the election is over and he won....

Seattle's $15.00 Minimum Wage "False Victory"!

Even if you have half a brain, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that raising the minimum wage will actually reduce the number of jobs available and/ or hours worked. Sadly, they will most likely be low income jobs, those which are needed the most desperately. It remains a short lived, false victory. If you don't believe me, consider the opinion from a few of the nations leading journalists below:

"The money for an increased minimum wage has got to come from somewhere, and there are only three places from which it can come: investors, in the form of lower profits; customers, in the form of higher prices; or workers, in the form of fewer jobs. Which group pays for the minimum wage hike depends on how competitive the marketplace is." By Antony Davies and James R. Harrigan

"The answer is obvious. Markets set wages. To stay in business and keep people employed, businesses have to be competitive. The cost of wages is reflected in the price of the product or service to the consumer. When labor costs go up, employers have two choices. They can attempt to pass the price increases on to customers (and perhaps lose their customers) or find a way to cut costs."
By Ellen Sauerbrey

Beating Obamacare 2014 Book Review!

"What Obamacare disaster will hit next? The website launch was a fiasco, millions of Americans' insurance has already been cancelled, the exchanges are still not working, and the enrollment numbers are abysmal. Betsy McCaughey uncovers the next disasters Obamacare is about to spring on an unsuspecting public, and shows you how to protect yourself." Betsy McCaughey

Who is Betsy McCaughey?
Betsy McCaughey, Ph.D., is a health policy expert and the former Lt. Governor of New York State. She has taught at Columbia University, held academic appointments in health policy at the Hudson Institute and the Manhattan Institute, written hundreds of articles for publications such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Modern Healthcare, The New Republic, and received numerous awards for her writings. She has been featured on ABC’s Good Morning America, the CBS Morning Show, 20/20, and many other national television and radio programs. She is founder and Chairman of RID—Reduce Infection Deaths—a national campaign to support greater infection control in hospitals and other healthcare institutions.

Following are several insightful reviews by people who actually read the book:

  • The author, in this well-written book, has performed a great service in distilling the information in the Allowable Care Act and so palatably presenting it to the public. She points out the many dangers and threats inherent in Obamacare, which stands to revolutionize and compromise the delivery of the excellent health care we have been expecting and receiving over the past many years. She warns how Americans who receive their insurance via the exchange plans may not have access to the top health care providers by the well-known and highly regarded health care centers of excellence such as Columbia-Cornell, Harvard University, Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins and the like. In addition there are many superb practicing physicians with whom I have Had the pleasure of sharing my expertise and benefitting from theirs, who too may be off limits to the exchange insured patients. As a physician for over 50 years in New York City, I wonder how these institutions will adapt to the reduction and qualitative changes in the populations they serve. These institutions offer care to patients with difficult or unusual conditions. I am pessimistic regarding the quality of care in the future. Will Obamacare result in many high quality physicians leaving these institutions along with their clinical.educational, and research expertise? This book is very valuable and important to anybody concerned about health care. Norman Sohn, MD 
  • This book helps the reader understand the difference between the ACA--passed into law and upheld by the Supreme Court and Obamacare. This administration has lawlessly changed the healthcare law with no regard to the constitution. McCaughey has turned this book into a tool to not only navigate the ever - changing rules, but also how to restore the Constitution. As a small business owner, understanding regulations (that seem to be ever-changing) is critical. Beating Obamacare is a must read. 
  • I bought Ms. McCaughey's first book, so I was not sure I needed this. But this law has changed so much, - thanks to our President's own actions, that the information in 2014 is totally different. Also this new book has more strategies on what I - or any average Joe - can do! I feel ready, in case my employer drops my coverage, which looks likely. I may also lend this book to my Dad. He's on Medicare, and the first chapter on Medicare cuts is truly eye-opening! 
  • I just got this book, so i haven't read it completely. But my wife and I had a baby last year, and we really need information about health insurance. This book looks great because it is so easy to read and is so clearly organized. I never read political books. But this book is practical. If you are looking for what all those labels mean - like Bronze, Gold, Silver - you get a straight story here. And I am really grateful for the section on Medicare. Both my parents need that information.  
  • Betsy McCaughey is one of the few in our country who has actually read the entire Affordable Care Act. In her book, she provides information and proposes solutions to problems that ordinary Americans are going to encounter as this law is implemented. Her narrative is easy to understand. I highly recommend this book to all who are interested in understanding and preparing themselves for Obamacare.

The Missouri Bridge Mannequin!

KANSAS CITY Mo. (Reuters) - A fully clothed mannequin wearing a President Barack Obama mask was discovered hanging by a rope from a highway overpass in the Kansas City area on Monday, police said.

In today's society of confused and otherwise dwindling moral fabric, who can honestly say they are surprised at this event. Hollywood should have desensitized us to behavior like this years ago. As you read on, you will discover what Americans really think about this....

  • A waste of a perfectly good mannequin.
  • Since we are all equal, a black president is entitled to the same treatment as a white president.
  • So many politicians, so few bridges.
  • Interesting. Our Muslim enemies overseas do that all the time.
  • Bush was hung in effigy during his Presidency - Liberals thought it was cool then
  • You can't hang Obama in effigy. That would be racist. But it's OK to hang George W Bush in effigy. He's white.
  • Obama will sic the IRS on the bridge.
  • The ultimate liberal answer to preventing this from happening again. Tear down that bridge.
  • It's a rite of passage. Bush's effigy was hung quite often once his popularity dwindled. Don't call it a racist stunt. It is just the natural next step for this president, he has lost his mojo.
  • And so it begins...America is finally waking up, the Hope-nosis is wearing off. Obama is now fair game, his race no longer offers the same protection as it once did. And now that the demon is human, it's time to kill it.
  • I think it is more a statement about the presidency than race. All Obama ever does is hang out.
  • The media wasn't this concerned with Benghazi.
  • Four dead in Benghazi, six dead trying to rescue the traitor for whom Obama released five Taliban, hundreds dead from Fast and Furious, vets dying without healthcare while Obama forces the entire nation into a similar health plan as the V.A., and we're worried about a mannequin? Seems to me that the real problem is that it was just a mannequin with a mask. Remember the Rosenbergs!
  • This mannequin was hanging east of Kansas City. The real 'dummy' is hanging in Washington DC..............

Clinton/Obama/Alinsky: 12 Common Rules for Radicals!

Sual Alinsky’s ideology is not foreign to President Barack Obama. The politician started his career as an Alinsky-style community organizer in Chicago and taught the radical’s tactics at the University of Chicago. In 1998, Obama participated in a panel discussion praising Alinsky alongside Midwest Academy’s founder Heather Booth, an organizer and dedicated disciple of Alinsky. Hillary Clinton met Alinsky through the pastor at her high school church, the Park Ridge Methodist Church. Hillary acquired Alinsky's pragmatism and his focus on strategy more than the humor and irreverence as a source for her own politics.
This is what they learned from their mentor:
* RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood. (These are two things of which there is a plentiful supply. Government and corporations always have a difficult time appealing to people, and usually do so almost exclusively with economic arguments.)
* RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone. (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)
* RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)
* RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)
* RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)
* RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones. (Radical activists, in this sense, are no different that any other human being. We all avoid “un-fun” activities, and but we revel at and enjoy the ones that work and bring results.)
* RULE 7: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news. (Even radical activists get bored. So to keep them excited and involved, organizers are constantly coming up with new tactics.)
* RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)
* RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist. (Perception is reality. Large organizations always prepare a worst-case scenario, something that may be furthest from the activists’ minds. The upshot is that the organization will expend enormous time and energy, creating in its own collective mind the direst of conclusions. The possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.)
* RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.)
* RULE 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem. (Old saw: If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Activist organizations have an agenda, and their strategy is to hold a place at the table, to be given a forum to wield their power. So, they have to have a compromise solution.)
* RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)
