If you watched certain channels you heard some wonderful words about Rush Limbaugh on his passing. Now if you went elsewhere to view or read you would be shocked at some of the words. There was a time when you respected someone on their passing. Here’s a few examples, there are many, many more.
Rush Limbaugh Dies at 70. Turned Talk Radio Into A Right-Wing Attack Machine. With a following of 15 million and a divisive style of mockery, grievance and denigrating language, he was a force in reshaping American conservatism.
Rush Limbaugh spent decades advancing his career by opportunistically spreading vicious lies that got a lot of bad people elected, whose corrupt policies in turn got a lot of Americans killed. Now he’s dead. So be it. There’s a reason “Rest in Piss” is trending right now.
Christopher Mathias – Huffington Post:
Rush Limbaugh was a bigot and a misogynist who saturated America’s airwaves with cruel lies and conspiracy theories for decades, transforming the GOP in the process.
So much for the tolerable left.
Speaking of which, look at what Joe Scarborough had to say on Morning Joe:
The “idiots on other cable news channels” who say the crime of “mom and pop” stores “vandalized during the summer riots” is “just as bad as the United States Capitol being vandalized,” Scarborough threw down: “No, jackass, it’s not.”
See, Scarborough proves the lives in Washington DC are more important than other lives. If you think all businesses and all lives are sacred, you are wrong according to the left. Washington DC people are more important than you.
Add this, Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Democratic leaders are considering a permanent, military-style barrier around the U.S. Capitol even as we learn that 7,000 National Guard soldiers and airmen will stay another month in the city and 5,000 troops will thereafter remain indefinitely.
So, their protection is more important than ours because they want the border walls stopped, even dismantled.
How do they get away with it? Oh yea, the press, that’s right.
Even with all this going on the left is not happy with President Biden. They are upset that Biden won’t write off $50,000 in student loans per borrower. He offered Warren and Schumer a reduction of $10,000. That alone charters new ground and is beyond the thought of many. Not the progressives though. AOC: “Who cares what school someone went to? Entire generations of working-class kids were encouraged to go into more debt under the guise of elitism. This is wrong. Nowhere does it say we must trade-off early childhood education for student loan forgiveness. We can have both.”
There is a divide in the Democratic Party today but those claiming to be “moderate,” though the majority are silent, and the left is leading and pushing the administration ever more left.
Here’s another example. Ever since her hug of Senator Graham after the Barrett hearing they have turned on former icon Diane Feinstein with all guns blazing.
The LA Times today:
“The slow, sad fade is not simply a function of Feinstein’s age — she is 87 — but also the fact that times and the political world have changed and Feinstein, whether unwilling or unable, has failed to change along with them. …
“Today, Feinstein is a subject of scorn, considered by many a relic who is well past her prime, who refuses to yield to someone younger, more vibrant, more politically pugnacious and more reflective of California’s kaleidoscopic racial and ethnic diversity. History, with its long view, is likely to be much kinder.”
Remember, if you say nothing, sooner or later they come for you.
Oh yea, the polices you are for and against are only dependent on if you are in power or not. Here’s an example.
There used to be a policy that any senator could refuse to submit a recommendation okay (called a blue slip) and the judge candidate nominated by the President for any judgeship would not pass and go to a vote.
Well Mitch McConnell got upset at all the hold ups and started to act without the blue slips. Democrats called it a crime and told us how wrong it was. They called it a moral crime. They are now back in power in the senate. So they reverted back, right? Wrong.
“The policy that incoming Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) is pursuing would make no change to the so-called ‘blue slip’ process that Republicans changed in 2017 to yank home-state senators’ power to block former President Donald Trump’s circuit court picks.“While Democrats criticized Republicans for scrapping blue slips for Trump, they’re now signaling that after four years of bruising judicial confirmation battles, they’re not going to reinstate the tradition they had defended.”
Surprised? You shouldn’t be. Mark Twain said this (I substituted the word phony for his word “idiot.”):
Suppose you were a phony. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But then I repeat myself.
You see they think we are the idiots because we won’t notice.
Oh yea, I guess most people won’t know because the press won’t tell us.
cuomo the hero
The hero of Coronavirus who lied, yet wrote a book about his leadership and won an Emmy, is finally getting a little heat. The adoring press who anointed him the brilliant leader and even developed a term “Cuomosexual” for his appeal. Well, now they have “Cuomoized” and they are treading lightly.
Think if he were a Republican and did this:
Describing an exchange with the governor that has not been previously reported, Democratic Assemblyman Ron Kim said that he received a call on his cell phone from the governor last week as he was batheing his children at home.
“Gov. Cuomo called me directly on Thursday to threaten my career if I did not cover up for Melissa [DeRosa] and what she said. He tried to pressure me to issue a statement, and it was a very traumatizing experience.” The Democratic assemblyman, had a family death in the Nursing Home fiasco. He quoted Cuomo as saying, “We’re in this business together and we don’t cross certain lines’ and he said “I hadn’t seen his wrath and that he can destroy me.”
So it gets worse for the Governor right? Except the NY Post had a poll yesterday. 46% of New Yorkers will vote next year to reelect him. 45% said they wouldn’t.
It’s good to be a Democrat with the press on your side, isn’t it?
some other news
A bad unemployment report this AM.
Unemployment claims rose to 861,000 last week, halting a downward trend that pointed to an improving labor market.
Some good news:
NASA expects to receive confirmation of a rover’s landing on Mars around 3:55 p.m. today. Amazing.
Rep. Shelia Jackson and House Democrats pushed forward a reparations plan for Black Americans on Wednesday despite tepid support from President Biden and stiff opposition from Republicans.
As a first step to making the country pay for past racism, Democrats want to establish a commission to examine slavery and discrimination dating back to 1619 and recommend appropriate remedies.
Now does every Democrat support this? No. But none speak up, why? Because the left owns the party voice today, and moderates are concerned if they speak up the left will primary and beat them.
Finally, the press never misses a chance to attack the former President. Here’s the NYT headline today on the building being demolished in Atlantic City.
Trump’s Atlantic City Hotel and Casino Demolition
The last vestige of former President Donald Trump’s legacy in Atlantic City, N.J., ended on Wednesday with the implosion of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino. It was once the premier gaming destination in the area.
Missing is the building was owned by Carl Ican who bought the property before Trump became President and has plans for the area.
Minor details, but why miss a chance to attack and degrade.
It’s the press folks.
