Rush Limbaugh Wins 2014 Children’s Choice “Author Of The Year” Award

Rush Limbaugh Is Now A Best Selling, Award Winning Children’s Book Author – Yahoo News

.
…………

.
It looks like Rush Limbaugh can add the title of award winning children’s book author to his vast resume. He has become “Author of the Year” as the result of winning the 2014 Children’s and Teen Choice Book contest.

To be sure Limbaugh likely won because the award is given out as the result of voting by actual child and teen readers and not some panel of academics and/or journalists. The fact that he has a popular radio show and might have mentioned the fact that he was a contestant once or twice likely entered into it as well.

Limbaugh won the award as the result of his book “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims” which is an account of how a time traveling middle school teacher, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the radio talker, and a talking horse visit the original Plymouth colony in the 1600s. The New York Times best-selling book was followed up by “Rush Revere and the First Patriots” which had his doppelganger visiting the outbreak of the American Revolution.

When the news had been released that Limbaugh was up for the award, the left let loose a hue and cry and tried to have him removed from the list. Fortunately this campaign was to no avail, as it was pointed out that the award was not subject to outside pressure but rather to the desires of young readers.

Besides writing entertaining stories and adding to his vast fortune as a result, Limbaugh’s motive for the books is to expose American children to a more positive view of American history. Sad to say that in too many schools, the United States is not depicted as a great country any longer as education has been replaced by political indoctrination. Limbaugh is trying to rectify that, which must be as bitter gall and wormwood to the left as well.

Johnathan Alter Defining Insanity

That definition of insanity is, of course, doing the same things over and over and expecting different results. Alter, who apparently is not all that bright, wonders when Liberals are going to try another boycott of Rush Limbaugh

Former Newsweek editor Jonathan Alter appeared on The Ed Show, Tuesday, to lobby for more boycotts of the “racist” Rush Limbaugh. The radio host’s crime, according to the writer, is making a few joking comments about the shoe-throwing incident involving Hillary Clinton. On his show, Limbaugh mused, “I can totally relate to people who think that everything the Clintons do is staged…I just don’t attach much genuineness to them.”  

Limbaugh allowed, “Maybe it’s because in my subconscious, I think it was staged.” Alter railed against Limbaugh, assailing, “When do more boycotts of Rush Limbaugh’s sponsors come? You know, there’s been some racist garbage over the years. He’s been racist on any number of occasions. ” Alter lamented that there has only been ” a little bit of a boycott” over past incidents. [MP3 audio here.]

Oh Johnny, Johnny, Johnny, you are a special kind of stupid aren’t you? Every time thought bigots like you have boycotted Rush, the boycott has not only failed, but has proven to make Rush more popular. But go ahead and boycott there Johnny, and while you are at it, go ahead and bang your head against a brick wall too.

Have you seen the Super Offensive Super Bowl ad banned by the NFL?

My patience with the NFL is wearing thin. From not allowing Rush Limbaugh to be part of a ownership group, to the inane rules no one can understand, to the often mediocre product on the field, and oddly enough, the increasingly sanitized and awful Super Bowl ads, to this bit of PC

By the way, the company offered to switch the company logo that appears at the end of the spot for an American flag. The NFL still ruled the ad “offensive”

According to a statement from FOX to Daniel Defense, “Unfortunately, we cannot accept your commercial in football/Super Bowl spots due to the rules the NFL itself has set into place for your company’s category.”

The NFL’s Advertising Policy addresses several Prohibited Advertising Categories, including guidelines for ads featuring alcohol, video games, movies, prescription drugs, and, of course, firearms.

The firearms portion of the NFL’s Prohibited Advertising Categories states:

“5. Firearms, ammunition or other weapons are prohibited; however, stores that sell firearms and ammunitions (e.g., outdoor stores and camping stores) will be permitted, provided they sell other products and the ads do not mention firearms, ammunition or other weapons.”

According to these guidelines, Daniel Defense’s Super Bowl commercial does not violate NFL policy for two reasons:

  • Daniel Defense has a brick-and-mortar store, where they sell products other than firearms such as apparel.
  • The commercial itself does not mention firearms, ammunition or weaponry.

While Daniel Defense’s commercial does not mention firearms, it does include a logo of their DDM4 rifle at the very end.

When the NFL denied the ad, Daniel Defense immediately offered to replace the DDM4 logo with an American flag and/or the words “Shall not be infringed.”

The NFL replied with another non-negotiable denial.

Allowing teams to shill for ObamaCare, though? That is OK of course, but an ad that talks about basic liberties and responsibilities? OFFENSIVE!

 

Most Influential Bloggers?

Ed and I have been named as two of the most influential bloggers around. The Lonely Conservative, Mind Numbed Robot, Matt at Conservative Hideout and William Teach have all been influenced by us in one way or another. So, now I have to answer some questions, nominate some other bloggers, and post this. The rules

According to whoever came up with this little exercise, there is no actual voting, it’s just a fun way to bring recognition to other blogs and bloggers that are out there.

Here are the rules:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.

2. Link back to the person who nominated you

3. Answer 7 questions decided up by your nominator

4. Nominate ( no limit of nominations ) other bloggers for this award and link back to them.

5. Notify those bloggers of the award requirements.

Post THIS spiffy award!

MIB

Now for the questions I am asking of the bloggers I nominate

1. Why did you start a political blog, and when?

2. Who is the one person still living that you would most like to meet and chat with?

3. Which historical figures do you most admire? Name the top 5

4. Would you replace Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court John Roberts if given the opportunity, and if so why and replace with whom?

5. If you were governor of your state, what would be your first action?

6. Who are your biggest crushes in the blogosphere/media/sports media?

7. If you could go back and change history, would you?

Now, the questions asked of me.

1. Why did you start a political blog and when?

I started this blog in June 2008. I had been writing op-ed columns for some internet sites and local papers since 1996 and I was burned out on that, too much structure. I needed something different, and I started reading Michelle Malkin’s Hot Air, which was a lot better when Michelle ran it by the way. She inspired me to  start blogging, which is why I refer to her as my  blogging role model. I wanted to do the blog with somebody, and one name popped into my head, Edward Daley. We had known each other since around 2000, and I knew how talented and passionate Ed is. He was my first choice.

2. Who is the one person still living that you would most like to meet and chat with?

Several names come to mind. Michelle Malkin obviously, also Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, and Mark Steyn. But the one person would be Dennis Prager I think. Fascinating, and wise man.

3. Would you replace Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court John Roberts if given the opportunity, and if so why and replace with whom?

Hell yes, he is a traitor in my view. He knew what was right, and went the political route. There is no American I loathe more than him, he is a disgrace. My replacement pick would be Clarence Thomas.

4. If you could visit one nation you have never visited before, what nation would that be?

Scotland

5. What is something you would collectively change about humanity?

I would want people to care about character, depth and substance rather than style and image.

6. If you could stand up in front of the elected GOP leadership, what would you tell them?

I would assert to them that they must BELIEVE in Conservative principles, and stop trying to make the media and Democrats like them. The Democrats are NOT our friends. I would also tell them to look at the political candidates the media and Democrats attack, those are the candidates they fear the most. Also I would try not to curse but it would be hard, as stupidity really agitates me.

7. If you could change any law or practice in the USA, what would it be and why?

So many to change, so little time. I would try to end all laws that attempt to supplant personal responsibility and choice with governmental rules.

Now on to the blogs I find influential.

And now, Ed injects his own thoughts into the mix.

1. Why did you start a political blog and when?
I’ve created several political blogs since around 2002, but none of them really took off due to my complete unwillingness to market them or even share their content with anyone other than my cat. Basically, my personal sites were just depositories for links to other websites that I liked, and I would occasionally post my own op-eds on them along with whatever other weird crap I’d created… pictures, parody song clips, videos, etc.

Then one day several years back I was chatting with Gator Doug on a political forum he was running, and he asked if I’d like to be a contributor to his new blog. For some strange reason he had already decided to include my last name in its title, so I figured I’d post a few things on it in order to seem a little less like the ungrateful jackass that I usually am.

For the first year or so I only dropped by the site maybe two or three times a week and posted articles on it even less often. Over time, however, I began to realize that The Daley Gator really didn’t suck as much as I’d first suspected, and if I just started getting into the habit of posting regular articles on it, it might end up sucking even less.

Not long after that day I figured out that you can actually get OTHER people to read your blog if you take a few minutes to tell them that it does, in fact, exist. Then I figured out that things like facebook and twitter could be used as tools to spread the site’s content around the web, thereby driving even more traffic to it.

Anyway, I think that answers the question… or, perhaps not, still it does answer a few questions that were never even asked, so I feel satisfied.

2. Who is the one person still living that you would most like to meet and chat with?
Hmmm… Well, I supposed that would have to be Newt Gingrich, or “The Newtster“, as I like to call him. I’d love to sit down with him and ask one or two questions which have haunted my mind for a while now, questions like: how the hell does an obviously brilliant man like you end up co-starring in a global warming PSA with Nancy freakin’ Pelosi?! Did you have a minor stroke or something during the last decade that escaped my notice? Oh, and why is it that every single RINO idiot who’s ever run for president has had a better campaign organization than you did in 2012?

3. Would you replace Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court John Roberts if given the opportunity, and if so why and replace with whom?
It depends. Do I also get to throw his sorry ass off the court completely along with every other smarmy, activistic douchebag currently infesting it? If so, then yes… yes I would.

As for whom I’d replace him with, only one name immediately comes to mind… Mark R. Levin Esq.!

4. If you could visit one nation you have never visited before, what nation would that be?
My first choice would have to be Ireland, because – a.) I have an Irish name. b.) I like Guinness Stout. c.) In Ireland they speak a language which is not entirely dissimilar to English. And d.) I’ve always heard that Irish chicks put out.

5. What is something you would collectively change about humanity?
The inexplicable need most folks seem to have for asking me silly questions.

6. If you could stand up in front of the elected GOP leadership, what would you tell them?
To quote the famed, American real estate magnate, Donald Trump, “You’re fired!”

7. If you could change any law or practice in the USA, what would it be and why?
Just one? Holy crap! Uh… okay, so I guess I’d change the law that bans me from swatting people I disapprove of over the head with a rolled-up newspaper whenever I see fit. I mean, sometimes ya just gotta blow off steam, right? Am I right?!

Okay then, I guess this is the part of the excercize where I post my nominees for the 2013 “Most Influential Blogger” award. Oh sure, I could compile an extensive list of websites that fit the bill, but frankly, I’m much too lazy to do that, so instead I’ve decided to limit my selections to only two.

They are:

Pat Dollard, because nothing gets by this patriotic American.

And…

Weasel Zippers, because with a name like Weasel Zippers, it has to be good.

Liberals never learn, example #488

It seems that every year, a group of Liberals try to get sponsors of Rush Limbaugh’s radio show to bail on him, thus shutting rush up. The Left engages in such tactics  because they are tolerant, open-minded folks who love freedom of speech, except when they disagree with the speech. Call it the Hush Rush Campaign. This campaign seems to never end, and it seems to fall flat on its face each time. This annual failure must peeve the Left pretty badly. If for no other reason than they are often successful in such tactics. Ah, but, as Stacy McCain notes, Rush is different. He is so popular that his advertisers know they will lose more costumers by leaving Rush’s show, than by staying with him. And that has to hit the Left hard, really hard. Just ask Matt Edelstein

On Thursday, Professor William Jacobson called attention to evidence that the “Stop Rush” boycott campaign has failed. Meanwhile, one of the leaders of the “Stop Rush” campaign, Matt “Shoq” Edelstein, had his lawyer send a cease-and-desist letter to his ex-girlfriend, who had been saying some unflattering things about Shoq.

Why is Rush so popular? Because he says it like it is

 

 

The ongoing war against God

There are certain truths in life, maybe I will make a list of them one day, kind of like Rush Limbaugh did years ago, but for now, allow me to focus on just one of these truths. Leftists HATE God. Yes, I know any Leftist reading this will howl in outrage. They will say that they merely wish to keep the “separation” of church and state that our Founders placed in the Constitution. Of course, the fact that there is no such separation never stops Leftists, and Liberals, who are just Leftists in training from finding it. And, sadly, enough Leftists judges have also found, or rather imagined, or maybe invented is a better term, such a constitutional standard.

Now, you might be thinking that just because the Left gets the Constitution wrong does not necessarily mean that they hate God. And I would agree, if, and this is a massive if, the Left did not spend so much time trying to use that imaginary clause in the Constitution to stamp out every last mention of God in the public realm. The sad fact is that wherever you can find a  display of the Ten Commandments in a school, or a public park, or a courthouse, you will find an outraged Atheist speed dialing the ACLU, or some other Left wing organization. The sad fact is that these same miscreants have done their level best to erase Christmas displays anywhere. In an odd twist, these  very same Intolerants will gladly tell you that Santa Claus, and Christmas Trees are NOT Christian symbols, but rather pagan, or secular symbols of the “Winter Solstice”, or whatever generic name they are currently using for CHRISTmas! But, let a city put Santa and his reindeer up in a city park, or let a school have a Christmas party, or even dare to have red and green cups and napkins at that party and the same freak shows will be screaming to high Heaven. Come on, make up your minds already.

Again, the excuse often used for waging war on cup cakes with the dreaded red or green icing at a school party, or for raising hell over a manger scene or a Christmas Tree in the local library, is that someone might be, hold your breath, offended! The right not to be offended is another right found in the Constitution according to Leftist’s deluded mind. Of course that right against having your feelings hurt only protects Leftist whiners and agitators from offense. Every one else, A.K.A. Normal Americans are not protected. Odd isn’t it? The Left will argue passionately about fairness and equality, until something they do offends a normal American. then the “right not to be offended” morphs into the right to fuck off and die.

For those still not convinced that the Left hates God let me give you on more item to ruminate on. The Left  wraps itself up in the first amendment, especially the freedom of speech part. It also wraps itself up in the “community”. Leftists are always talking about community, the Black Community, the Hispanic Community, the LGBT Community, this community that community. But let the Normal American Community express themselves by putting up a war memorial in a city park that dares to mention God in any way, even if that is just a simple cross, and the same Leftists are there to try to take that memorial down.

So, the Left loves fairness, and equality, they hate when anyone is offended, they love freedom of expression, and “community”, as long as it benefits their agenda. And in this case erasing public mentions or displays of Christianity IS the sole agenda. So, what else can we assume here but that Leftists hate God. But, why do they hate God? Why would radical Atheists be so vehement about forcing everyone else to submit to their beliefs? Note, I said radical Atheists because most Atheists really do not give a flip about a Santa Claus in a park. They do not believe, and do not have time to worry about your beliefs, which is fine with me. So, again the question. Why do Leftists hate God? Well, because they hate liberty and individualism.

Think of America. Is there a greater target for Leftist hate than America? Is there a nation more maligned among Leftists than America? The answer is no. And, when you dissect all the protests against America, you find a common theme. The hatred of liberty. And where does liberty, as honored in America come from? Liberty comes from God. The American ideal is that we are created with certain rights. These rights have a source, and that source is God. Nothing will agitate a Leftists more than any value system that dares challenge their core ideal, that rights are NOT individual rights. Leftists hold that rights are collective, and that these rights come not from God, but from government. And as the source of these collective rights, government can restrict, limit, or take certain rights at will.

So it comes down to a basic, fundamental issue. If the Individualists are right, then God is the source of our rights, and those rights are inherently OURS. If Individualists are correct, then government does not have the authority to give, take, or restrict these natural rights. To a Leftist/Collectivist, the source of all our rights is government, and all those right are collective. Leftists can never form their Utopian State as long as we, the people recognize God as the source of our liberty. So, for that Utopia to grow God must go. That is why Leftists hate God.
