• Flashback: Rush’s 35 Undeniable Truths

I know this isn’t new, but given the fact that the left keeps calling Rush and his fans/listeners/students the fringe, and given the fact that the average daily readers of USA Today, Newsweek and The New York Times (The Whipping Boys Of The Left) totals less than 20 million viewers while Rush pulls in over 20 million listeners on his own… The fringe seems to be the left with the right becoming more center-ish, well let’s just say that I am in man-crush mode with him right now. So, in celebration of my faux-gheynitude, from 1994 (yes 94!):

Rush Limbaugh’s 35 Undeniable Truths

Sarah Palin… VPILF? Damn Right!

UPDATED BELOW! VIDEO ADDED!
How Hot Am I?

How Hot Am I?

On top of being a VPilf she’s a great politicain, leader and role-model. Not to mention a fisherman, a hunter and a championship snowmobiler… But for some reason the Barry O camp thinks that they can criticize her for not being experinced? Really? REALLY?

McCain aide Jill Hazelbaker:

It is pretty audacious for the Obama campaign to say that Governor Palin is not qualified to be Vice President. She has a record of accomplishment that Senator Obama simply cannot match. Governor Palin has spent her time in office shaking up government in Alaska and actually achieving results — whether it’s taking on corruption, passing ethics reform or stopping wasteful spending and the ‘bridge to nowhere.’ Senator Obama has spent his time in office running for President.

This is a politician I could get behind!

NICE!

NICE!

Local Radio Personality Bruce Jacobs Railroaded By City Of Phoenix

This story has many many facets, so if you have any questions I will try and answer them as asked. Basically here in Az. we have a huge immigration problem. We have possibly hundreds of thousands of illegals walking the streets, working in our offices, cleaning our babies asses, you name it they have made their way in and at this point the left is going to make sure that they stay. But along with these “Undocumented workers” come the lowest criminals you could think of. Undocumented Rapists, Undocumented Murderers, Undocumented Hit & Runners, Undocumented Cop Killers. The latter being what this is all about.

Phoenix Police Officer Nick Erfle was shot after he and his partner approached three people for jaywalking and obstructing traffic on 24th Street, one block north of Thomas Road.

The suspect carjacked a vehicle and took the driver hostage. About an hour later, an unmarked special assignments unit spotted a car and suspect matching the carjacked vehicle’s description.

They began surveillance and managed to box in the vehicle at 27th Avenue and McDowell Road. The suspect pointed his gun at the hostage and he was shot and killed by an officer. The suspect was later identified as an illegal alien with a felony record. He had been deported in 2006 and illegally re-entered the country.

The driver of the vehicle was not injured. The two females who were with the suspect when he was initially stopped were taken into custody for questioning.

Officer Erfle had served with the Phoenix Police Department for 8 years. He is survived by his wife and two children.

Mrs. Julie Erfle, the widow of slain Phoenix Police Officer Nick Erfle was recruited last week by Phoenix Police Chief Jack Harris to be a spokesperson for Immigration Reform.

At a news conference on Thursday, she expressed frustration with the immigration debate in Phoenix since her husband was killed eight months ago.

Erfle called on Gov. Janet Napolitano to set up a nonpartisan task force of experts that would push for comprehensive immigration reform within Arizona. The task force’s goal, she said, would be to emphasize public safety while preserving the dignity of all people.

“We need comprehensive immigration reform that puts safety and humanity on an equal footing,” Erfle said. “We cannot have one without the other.”

In doing so, she said, she would honor the memory of a man who gave his life in service to the community.

“I believe his death can also be an inspiration – an inspiration for positive change,” Erfle said. “I hope that today will be a first step in immigration, and not a last step.”

Really? REALLY? Well besides being an unusual area to become interested in it is also more interesting in regards to what’s going on right now in Phoenix with not only Phoenix Police Chief Jack Harris but with his boss Mayor Phil Gordon. Mayor Phil Gordon is in a fight for his life as the citizens of Phoenix are signing a petition to have him recalled.

A public-interest group in Phoenix is collecting signatures in hopes of forcing a recall election for Mayor Phil Gordon, who they believe has failed to deal with the problem of illegal immigration in the community.

The group — American Citizens United — has until August 28 to collect nearly 24,000 signatures from the city’s 521,000 registered voters. Spokesman Phillip Quihuis believes Phoenix has turned into a sanctuary city because Gordon is a sanctuary mayor. And he contends the sanctuary policy has been devastating to the nation’s fifth-largest city, essentially making the Arizona capital the “kidnapping capital of the nation.”

“We’re also right on the top when it comes to identity theft…[and] auto thefts because so many ‘coyotes’ and drug runners are stealing cars up in the Phoenix area [and] taking them down to Mexico…to transport drugs and illegal aliens back up here,” he details.

Phoenix citizens want a mayor who is going to stop turning a blind eye to the situation, Quihuis asserts, and actually do something to clean up the city.

So… I know this is a lot to take in and this post is long but this story is incredibly complicated. Anywhoooo, Bruce Jacobs a local radio personality at 550 KFYI and outspoken critic of both Immigration Reform and Jack Harris and Mayor Phil Gordon.  So Bruce Jacobs went on the radio Thursday morning and blasted Julie Erfle for doing something so stupid as placating the same group that wants to open the borders to Undocumented Rapists, Undocumented Murderer’s, Undocumented Hit & Runners, Undocumented Cop Killers. I actually was listening to this “rant” when he did it and found it a bit hard to listen to, but to be honest I have to agree with him. To listen to him on Thursday CLICK HERE to listen to him on Friday CLICK HERE.  But more importantly Phoenix Police Chief Jack Harris decided they needed to do a press conference yesterday morning and released this statement.

Media Advisory
August 25, 2008

On Thursday, August 21st, 2008, KFYI radio personality Bruce Jacobs engaged in a verbal attack on the character of Mrs. Julie Erfle, the widow of slain Phoenix Police Officer Nick Erfle. Officer Erfle paid the ultimate price when he was gunned down in the line of duty on September 18, 2007. Today, August 25, 2008, at 4:00 P.M., City of Phoenix Public Safety Manager Jack Harris will be holding a press conference in response to the unwarranted attack on Mrs. Erfle. The news conference will be held in the Police Chief’s conference room of the Main Police Station at 620 W. Washington. There will not be a question and answer session following the conference.

To hear the news conference click here. So, how did we get here? Well as it turns out who do you think is Jack Harris and Mayor Phil Gordon’s biggest critic and isn’t afraid to get on the radio and say so, everyday? Bruce Jacobs!

So basically the left is trying to stop free speech by putting a helpless, hopeless, poor grieving widow out front of a topic that quite frankly has been already decided on, WE ARE NOT IN FAVOR OF AMNESTY! IT IS NOT GOING TO WORK OR STOP ILLEGAL ALIENS FORM ENTERING THE UNITED STATES AND BREAKING OUR LAWS! BUILD OUR FENCE!

Quit putting these people out in front of the issues that you think are going to get you reelected, or in this case RECALLED in the hopes that no one will speak out against them for fears of being looked at as mean or nasty. In this case thank God we have someone like Bruce Jacobs who isn’t afraid of getting out there and saying it like it is. You wanna hear what he has to say about this?

In response Bruce Jacobs says, “My comments were never aimed at Julie Erfle the widow.  I empathize with the tragic and senseless death of her husband, fallen hero, Nick Erfle.  However anyone who wants to be an advocate, promoter, or spokes person for amnesty is opened to be criticized.”

Media Gets Giddy With Obama Lust

Is there any question that the media is in the tank for the Obama Party? Not after this…

Hillary… “Assinate Obama…” Nudge, Nudge, Wink, Wink…

Hillary brings up RFK today in a televised interview. Her campaign tries to clarify her statement but… She did say it… Awkwaaaaard!

Hillary Clinton today brought up the assassination of Sen. Robert Kennedy while defending her decision to stay in the race against Barack Obama.

“My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don’t understand it,” she said, dismissing calls to drop out.

Her campaign tries to clarify her statement here but I think the damage is done. It may not be as bad as I think it is but with all of the wackos out there on the left, hopefully some freak doesn’t think she’s talking directly to him through the TV.

“I regret that if my referencing that moment of trauma for our entire nation – particularly for that family – was in any way offensive,” Clinton continued. “I certainly had no intention of that whatsoever. My view is that we have to look to the past and to our leaders who have inspired us and give us a lot to live up to and I’m honored to hold Senator Kennedy’s seat in the United States Senate in the state of New York. And have the highest regard for the entire Kennedy family.”

Clinton’s statement stands in contrast to the initial reaction from the Clinton camp.

“She was simply referencing her husband in 1992 and Bobby Kennedy in 1968 as historic examples of the nominating process going well into the summer. Any reading into beyond that would be inaccurate,” responded Clinton campaign spokesperson Mo Elleithee.

• Hillary by the numbers… Big Numbers.

hillarymouths.jpg Ok, so many of you know how much I hate the Clintons. It’/s certainly no secret. I will admit however that I did vote for Bill the second time. But to be honest I was always getting high and drinking everyday and had no idea what exactly I was voting for. Then I found Rush, and everything changed. Being an artist I deal with more than a few Democrats/Liberals on a daily basis… BigMok, you know who you are… But when I talk to them about the Clintons it always comes back to this… “But George Bush is a lying idiot”. I challenge anyone out there that thinks they can defend the Clintons to defend this. Let me look into the future comments I can expect… Bush is more corrupt, he lied, Cheney is the devil, Rove was a goat, Bush’s regime is the worst evah, blah blah blah. Quit falling on the Bush/Hitler sword and defend this and yourselves. These are the people a crap load of you want back in office. If Bush is bad what do you call this? If Bush is corrupt what’s this? If what Bush is, is not what you want why would you want this? Hypocrisy, lies, convictions. I would put Bush’s stats up against these any day! By stats I mean real data, not those same lines I just went over. Show me the Clinton’s are not as bad as Bush and I will cast my vote for Billary. I swear… although I would have to get really high and drunk to do it again.

Hillary Clinton By the Numbers…

0: the number of questions that Hillary answers during a typical campaign appearance.

12: the number of publicized fibs, fabrications and fables that qualified for the “Top Twelve Hillary Clinton Fabrications List.”

18: the number of months that Bill Clinton carried on an affair in the White House without Hillary’s knowledge, despite the claim that she is “the smartest person” he knows.

30: the number of times Hillary Clinton’s new HillaryCare plan refers to “Americans” as opposed to the number of times the plan references “citizens” (zero), even though approximately 10.2 million uninsured Americans are believed to be illegal aliens.

32: the number of times Hillary Clinton sponsored, cosponsored or voted for legislation providing amnesty or rewarding aliens for illegally entering the United States.

41: the number of Clinton friends, colleagues, business associates, and relatives convicted of crimes through January 2001.

100: the number of redacted pages in the Cox Report, which revealed a massive espionage campaign conducted by the Chinese government under the Clinton administration’s watch. One major aspect of the operation related to the apparent swap of sensitive ballistic missile technology to China in exchange for campaign donations to the Democratic National Committee.

120: the number of redacted pages in the Barrett Report, which describes the “effort by Clinton administration officials to first block and then limit the probe as a way of taking pressure off an administration that was already beset by scandals” in the case of disgraced former HUD secretary Henry Cisneros.

250: the number of times Hillary said she didn’t know, didn’t remember, couldn’t recall, etc. over the course of multiple investigations.

900: the number of secret FBI files illegally gathered by Bill and Hillary Clinton in an effort to discredit the women who had charged President Clinton with sexual misconduct. Courts found that the privacy of Linda Tripp and Kathleen Willey had been violated: “when faced with discovery, the Clinton-Gore White Housecompounded their legal troubles by launching a cover-up and failing to turn over documents as required by subpoena… Judicial Watch was able to link Mrs. Clinton directly to the center of the Filegate controversy.”

100,000: the approximate amount Hillary Clinton made in cattle futures commodity trading in 1978, although her account was underfunded by $11,000 of the required $12,000 investment in what some believe was an exchange for favorable treatment of Tyson Foods by the Bill Clinton administration (“In return, as reported in The New York Times Magazine, [Tyson] expected the new governor to raise the legal truck-weight limit in Arkansas so that Tyson Foods could compete with out-of-state poultry truckers”).

113,000: the number of donors to the $165 million Clinton Library, for which the Clintons have not released information. Investigations by the Washington Post and New York Times have revealed a substantial number of foreign donors (e.g., Saudi and Chinese) that also contributed to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

200,000: the amount of a falsified invoice that Hillary’s 2000 Senate campaign presented to the Federal Election Commission, which led to her finance director’s indictment. The rancor around the Peter Paul celebrity fundraising event is simply one small piece of what some have called “the largest election law fraud in history.”

635,500: the amount in U.S. dollars given to Clinton-controlled Democratic Party Committees by Johnny Chung and Bernard Schwartz in an apparent quid pro quo for Chinese access to sensitive missile guidance technologies.

850,000: the amount given to Hillary Clinton and Democratic campaigns by jailed fugitive Norman Hsu.

1,450,000: the approximate amount given to the Clintons and/or Democratic causes by Denise Rich, wife of fugitive Marc Rich, in an apparent exchange for a Presidential pardon.

3,022,030: the number of HillaryCare documents from 1993-1995 that have not been released, despite repeated promises to do so.

7,000,000: the approximate annual budget of the White House travel office, which was replaced after decades of service by the Clinton administration: “First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton… came under scrutiny for allegedly having played a central role in the firings and making false statements about her role in it… In 2000, Independent Counsel Robert Ray [stated that] Hillary Clinton had made factually false statements but saying there was insufficient evidence to prosecute her.”

50,000,000: the approximate high range of Hillary Clinton’s net worth as of 2005, an increase from a high range of $3.8 million in 2003 (an approximate gain of 14,000% in two years).

John McAmnesty… The First Mexican President!

Ok. Let me say that this is making me sick. I defend the right everyday, but I can’t get half a man for president. John McCain has put onto his staff the worst of the worst when it comes to immigration. Juan Hernandez as Hispanic Outreach Director… What the hell is he thinking? Maybe he’s thinking that he will get the left to vote for him instead of Obama? No, not even the biggest idiot walking God’s Green Earth would believe that. Maybe he thinks that us on the right wouldn’t notice someone like Hernandez joining his staff because “he supports my policies and my proposals and my legislative proposal to secure the borders first.” Nah… probably not. Well, Ol’ Lettuce McAmnesty got called on it and what was his answer?

So just in-case you don’t know who Juan Hernandez is…

Hot Air really spanks this yahoos pinatas…

Hernandez is also on the record advocating a “Mexico first” policy for Mexican-Americans who have been living in the US for generations. The Soros-connected former Mexican cabinet officer is also on the record as seeing the US, Mexico and Canada as a bloc or region within which there shouldn’t be borders. Unless those policies sync with McCain’s, Hernandez does not agree with McCain’s policies. He might be on the senator’s staff for some other reason, but policy agreement isn’t it. Unless, of course, McCain agrees with Hernandez’s policies. And if that’s the case, the voters ought to know about it.

• Clinton’s Health Care Plan… Is the public really ready for this?

The left is/has/will continually accuses George Bush of spying on American citizens. They say it’s BAD. That it is unconstitutional and he should be impeached. But the real criminal has already been impeached and his EVIL wife may be our next President. In documents obtained by Judicial Watch, via a lawsuit, the Clinton’s openly admit to spying on American Citizens. Not because they are terrorists, but because they are… AMERICANS!

Judicial Watch Releases Records Re: Hillary’s Health Care Reform Plan

Internal Memos Detail Creation of Government “Interest Group Database” to Collect Personal Data on Health Care Debate Activists

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today released records obtained from the Clinton Presidential Library related to the National Taskforce on Health Care Reform, a “cabinet-level” task force chaired by former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton during the Clinton administration. Specifically, these documents come from the White House Health Care Interdepartmental Working Group.

Among the highlights of the documents released by Judicial Watch:

• A June 18, 1993 internal Memorandum entitled, “A Critique of Our Plan,” authored by someone with the initials “P.S.,” makes the startling admission that critics of Hillary’s health care reform plan were correct: “I can think of parallels in wartime, but I have trouble coming up with a precedent in our peacetime history for such broad and centralized control over a sector of the economy…Is the public really ready for this?… none of us knows whether we can make it work well or at all…”

• A “Confidential” May 26, 1993 Memorandum from Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) to Hillary Clinton entitled, “Health Care Reform Communications,” which criticizes the Task Force as a “secret cabal of Washington policy ‘wonks’” that has engaged in “choking off information” from the public regarding health care reform. The memorandum suggests that Hillary Clinton “use classic opposition research” to attack those who were excluded by the Clinton Administration from Task Force deliberations and to “expose lifestyles, tactics and motives of lobbyists” in order to deflect criticism. Senator Rockefeller also suggested news organizations “are anxious and willing to receive guidance [from the Clinton Administration] on how to time and shape their [news] coverage.”

• A February 5, 1993 Draft Memorandum from Alexis Herman and Mike Lux detailing the Office of Public Liaison’s plan for the health care reform campaign. The memorandum notes the development of an “interest group data base” detailing whether or not organizations “support(ed) us in the election.” The database would also track personal information about interest group leaders, such as their home phone numbers, addresses, “biographies, analysis of credibility in the media, and known relationships with Congresspeople.”

These records released by Judicial Watch were obtained from the approximately 13,000 records made publicly available by the Clinton Library. The National Archives admits there may be an additional 3,022,030 textual records, 2,884 pages of electronic records, 1,021 photographs, 3 videotapes and 3 audiotapes related to the Task Force that are being withheld indefinitely from the public. On November 2, 2007 Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against the National Archives to force the release of all the Task Force records.

“These documents paint a disturbing picture of how Hillary Clinton and the Clinton administration approached health care reform – secrecy, smears, and the misuse of government computers to track private and political information on citizens,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “There are millions more documents that the Library has yet to release. The Clintons continue to play games and pretend they have nothing to do with this delay. The Clintons should get out of the way and authorize the release of these records now.”

• Congress, Pissing Like My Grandpa… Again.

We all know that congress sucks. The left-wing liberal media just can’t admit it though and when they do say something they always make sure to say that Congress can’t get anything done because the Republicans keep getting in their way. But in the disgusting left-libtard media exposition of the day, USA Today ran this headline for the article that follows.

Americans’ approval of Congress sinks to new low

Now reading this you would think that it was going to say what the approval ratings are for the Democrat majority congress wouldn’t you? Or why the Demtards are so unbelievably incompetent. Hell no they start with this:

As President Bush and Congress battle on the budget, homeland security and the war in Iraq, Americans blame both Republicans and Democrats for the impasse.

By more than 2-to-1 margins, they give the president, congressional Democrats and congressional Republicans unfavorable ratings in a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll released Monday. While Bush’s ratings have been poor for most of the past two years, the two parties in Congress hit new lows in the poll.

What is the Democrat controlled congress approval rating? Who the fuck knows, they never even mention it. But they sure as hell mention this:

The president’s 65% disapproval rating is his lowest since July, despite a decline in violence in Iraq, a Middle East peace conference and victories over congressional Democrats on the 2008 budget.

• 19 Democrats vote NO to Christmas! (Updated)

Christmas. Or should I say the “War On Christmas!” The “War On Terror” is just a bumper sticker but the “War On Christmas” is now a legislative reality.

Yesterday on Capital Hill there was a vote, actually several votes regarding observances of several religious holidays.

Excerpts from three recent House resolutions regarding religious observances:

RAMADAN
HR 635: “Acknowledges the onset of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal, and conveys its respect to Muslims in the United States and throughout the world on this occasion.”
Approved 376-0

DIWALI
HR 747: “Acknowledges the onset of Diwali and expresses its deepest respect to Indian Americans and the Indian Diaspora throughout the world on this significant occasion.”
Approved 358-0

CHRISTMAS
HR 847: “Acknowledges the international religious and historical importance of Christmas and the Christian faith.”
Approved 372-9

Whoa, wait a minute… What was the vote on that last one? This couldn’t be right… 372-9?

Surprise surprise, several Democrats drew the line at recognizing Christmas.

Nine Democrats voted No – Ackerman, Clarke, DeGette, Hastings (FL), Lee, McDermott, Scott (VA), Stark and Woolsey.

10 Democrats and 1 Republican voted “Present.” – Conyers, Frank (MA), Holt, Payne, Schakowsky, Schwartz, Wasserman Schultz, Welch (VT) and Yarmuth (Which to ME is the same as voting no).

This is interesting because of this group 17 of the 18 D’s above voted FOR the resolution honoring Ramadan!

What the hell? This vote wasn’t to get extra days off, or to funnel government funds into buying Christmas trees or more ornaments for the White House Christmas tree, it was simply to recognize that Christmas is important to CHRISTIANS! I find it hard to believe that the Democrats listed above could possibly represent the people that they were elected to represent. The people in their districts should be outside of their offices pelting the buildings with ornaments and fruitcakes. The left is constantly misrepresenting the people of this country and the idea that anyone could vote against what is obviously the holiday observed by the majority of Americans is INCONCEIVABLE!

Update:
To prove that my comment was true that this is “nothing more than a branch of the Bush-Derangement Syndrom Tree. Hate the right no matter what. Hate Christians because they live their lives by the word of God not the word of the government.” From the Seattle PI

McDermott said the resolution was a Republican tactic designed to draw attention from pressing issues in Congress, including legislation to boost funding of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, or SCHIP. President Bush vetoed a bill Thursday that would have expanded the program.

McDermott supported House resolutions this fall to recognize the Islamic holy month of Ramadan and the festival of Diwali, celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains. He drew the line at Christmas, he said, because the resolution only stated “obvious facts” that Christianity was the predominant faith in the U.S. and that many Christians and non-Christians celebrated Christmas.

“It’s Christmas time. There’re lots of Christians in the U.S. Hurray for Christmas. It’s ridiculous,” McDermott said, giving his take on the resolution.

Rather than “wasting time on this stuff,” he said, people should be protesting Bush’s vetoes of expanding health insurance for children.

“We’re talking about Christmas, and we do not care about kids in the state of Washington,” McDermott said.
