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 Sad to say that in too many schools, the United States is not depicted as a great country any longer as education has been replaced by political indoctrination.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.

Crazy Legs Matthews inserts foot in mouth again

Someone should buy this tool a dictionary, or maybe better yet someone could read the definition of racism to him

Via Newsbusters’ Noel Sheppard:

RUSH LIMBAUGH: That’s an interesting take that the President inspires it, inspires racism. It may well be the case. So Obama’s presence inspires this guy to go all divisive, all racist and start jamming on the Republicans for wanting blacks in the back of the bus and women back in the kitchen when he can’t name a single person who does. But the President of the United States, you may be right, may have inspired that in this preacher.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

MATTHEWS: Well actually, Rushbo, racism is the belief that one race – whites – should rule all others. Get your definitions straight.

OK Matthews, here you go. From Dictionary.com

1.a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving theidea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

2.

a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such  a doctrine discrimination.

3.

hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.
From Websters
a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
2
: racial prejudice or discrimination
While you are there look up the word stupid as well Matthews!

Media whitewashes crazed ex-cop’s manifesto

Over at The Other McCain, Stacy notes this tidbit about Christopher Dorner’s and his manifesto

ABC News reports:

The rage-filled “manifesto” written by former police officer Christopher Dorner before he went on an alleged cop killing spree around the Los Angeles area was dismissed by the head of the Los Angeles Police Department today as “self-serving” and “ramblings on the Internet.”

Well of course it is “self-serving” and rambling, manifestos are rambling, incoherent and self-serving, If you do not believe me, read the Communist Manifesto sometime, talk about Cukoo for Cocoa Puffs! But, the real story is not what the LAPD is pointing out. The real story is that the media is downplaying, completely ignoring this nuts manifesto.

Indeed. The major media have tried to suppress the ugly truth about Chris Dorner’s motives and ideology by publishing a truncated version of his Facebook “manifesto” that omits the evidence that this mass murderer is, in fact, a liberal Democrat. Sooper Mexican got hold of the entire manifesto that makes the truth obvious enough:

No more Virginia Tech, Columbine HS, Wisconsin temple, Aurora theatre, Portland malls, Tucson rally, Newtown Sandy Hook. Whether by executive order or thru a bi-partisan congress an assault weapons ban needs to be re-instituted. Period!!!
Mia Farrow said it best. “Gun control is no longer debatable, it’s not a conversation, its a moral mandate.”
Sen. Feinstein, you are doing the right thing in leading the re-institution of a national [assault weapons ban]. Never again should any public official state that their prayers and thoughts are with the family. That has become cliche’ and meaningless. Its time for action.

Well, how about that? pretty strange isn’t it? I mean here is a guy, OK a nutcase with a rambling manifesto, who abhors mass shootings and “assault weapons”. And to show how much he cares about the victims of gun violence, he is shooting people! that, my friends is grade-A crazy! Of course, Dorner also shows another sure sign of certified lunacy by praising Dianne Feinstein, and Mia Farrow.

“Mia Farrow said it best” — yeah, that’s the kind of sentence that practically screams “diminished mental capacity.”

“Sen. Feinstein, you are doing the right thing” — another telltale clue that we are dealing with a deranged mind.

So, what if the killer had a manifesto that even used the words Tea Party? What if he, in any way, mentioned Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, or any Conservative blog? Would the media be ignoring that as unimportant? Yeah, I know, silly question. And of course, you David Frum would be Tweeting like a mofo ripping gun owners, and trying to stay relevant.

Speaking of food I should not eat………..

I do not do many movie, or food reviews here. Although that would be a great job to get paid for, but after a visit to the doctor for  a check up Thursday, I passed a new restaurant, well new to the Dallas area anyway, Five Guys Burgers and Fries. I had heard about Five Guys, heard the burgers were good,, and the fries awesome. So, after getting a good result from my check up, I figured what the heck.

I went in ordered my burger, all topping are free, so you just tell them what you want. I went for the cheeseburger, mayo mustard, pickles, a burger without pickles is unthinkable, tomatoes, and lettuce, and a large order of fries. It took a few minutes to cook the burgers, and I watched their kitchen crew cooking and assembling burgers, cooking fries, etc. They had it down to a science, it is fun to watch people who know what they are doing. Then, my order in hand, in a brown paper sack with authentic grease stains in hand, I went out to the truck, turned on Rush Limbaugh, and dug in.

five-guys-french-fries-031609

First off the fries are rockin! Seasoned well, thick cut, and super hot. One thing though, unless you are feeding a small village, a large fry is a meal itself, even the smaller order is huge I am told. Then, I unwrapped the burger, the cheese was melted, sticking to the foil wrapper. My first bite, was good, you can tell they use real ground beef, not frozen, it tasted like hamburgers used to. Like I said, it was good, but, as I continued eating, I found myself falling in love with this burger! In fact it is likely the best burger I have had in years, maybe ever. So, if you like burgers, find a Five Guys and go munch!

Walter Williams on how to rid ourselves of Obamacare

Ed touched on Nullification yesterday and today, Walter Williams subbing for Rush touched on it as well

On Rush Limbaugh’s Thursday program, George Mason University professor Walter E. Williams outlined the case that states can nullify Obamacare, citing Thomas Jefferson’s 1789 Kentucky Resolution, which was a claim that the U. S. Constitution is a compact among the several states, and any power not delegated to the U.S. government is void.

“I think the American citizens ought to press their state governors and legislatures just to nullify the law — just to plain nullify it and say, ‘The citizens of such-and-such-a state don’t have to obey Obamacare because it’s unconstitutional, regardless of what the Supreme Court says,’” Williams said.

Williams cited Marbury v. Madison, which said “all laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void” to further the case for nullification from the states.

Nullification is a doctrine introduced in the infancy of the United States and was what some have suggested led to the Civil War. As far as the legal precedent of nullification and how it led to the Civil War, Williams said he doubted the repercussions would as serious as they were in 1861.

“I think two things are different this time,” he said. “First, most Americans are against Obamacare. And secondly, I don’t believe — and you call me up and tell me if I’m wrong about this — I don’t believe that you could find a United States soldier who would follow a presidential order to descend on a state to round up or shoot fellow Americans because they refuse to follow a congressional order to buy health insurance.”

Williams is right on here! As he usually is.

Of Miscreant Leftists and Their Nefarious Deeds part 2 Never trust a pretty face

You can see what I put up a while ago on concerning Obama’s campaign and their ties to on line intimidation and thuggery here. Along those same lines is this story, also from Stacy McCain. It seems a certain MSNBS host, has ties to the #stopRush Boycott too

MSNBC host Krystal Ball was in close communication with leaders of an online boycott aimed at advertisers on Rush Limbaugh’s popular radio show, e-mails between the boycott leaders indicate.

Attempting to discover the identity of an infiltrator in their group, the #StopRush leader @Shoq (aka “Shoq Value,” who is believed to be an activist named Matt Edelstein) indicated that Ball had warned another member about the suspected “right wing disrupter.” The other member had “already inquired with Krystal last week, and Krystal said ‘we don’t like or trust this guy,’” Shoq wrote in an e-mail published Thursday by Brooks Bayne at The Trenches.

Bayne said the e-mail was obtained from a Google group, “Social Action Steering,” which was apparently deleted after The Trenches published the correspondence between the #StopRush leaders. The group was attempting to discover the true identity and political leanings of a Texas man, known as “Randy Hahn,” who had joined their anti-Limbaugh effort and caused dissension among the boycotters.

Ball, a Democrat who ran for Congress in Virginia two years ago, is a paid MSNBC contributor who was recently announced as one of four co-hosts of a new daily program, The Cycle, on the left-leaning cable news network. It is unclear whether MSNBC executives were aware of the extent of Ball’s involvement in #StopRush, which used the social network in a campaign to drive Limbaugh off the airwaves by threatening boycotts against advertisers on his conservative talk show, the nation’s most popular syndicated radio program.

Professor William Jacobson’s Legal Insurrection blog has described how the #StopRush effort was evidently coordinated with the tax-exempt non-profit Media Matters for America, apparently using so-called “sockpuppet” accounts in a fake-grassroots ”astroturf” campaign.

Media Matters is supposed to be, according to Media Matters, non-partisan, and is supposed to serve, again, according to Media Matters as a watchdog of the media. Instead, they have made their real role obvious long ago. rather than a watchdog, they are an attack dog for the Left. I have long referred to Media Matters by a better name, Media Marxist Against America. Odd that Media Matters should be exposing this type of story, and fake news outlets like MSNBS. Instead, they are willing partners in online intimidation and censorship efforts it seems. Speaking on online thugs, Stacy also reports that Neal Rauhauser’s name has come up in connection with this too.

In attempting to discover the identity of “Randy Hahn,” the #StopRush boycott leader Shoq sought the services of Democrat consultant Neal Rauhauser, thee-mails obtained by The Trenches show. Rauhauser provided the group with extensive documentation about a Houston man named Jason, whose surname was redacted in the version posted by Bayne. Rauhauser then mused about exposing the man to harassment by sending his personal information to online groups.

“I have been sorely tempted to point him out to various actors — a guy like this, he could really produce some high quality entertainment for 4chan, Something Awful, Encyclopedia Dramatica, etc.,” Rauhauser wrote in his e-mail reply to Shoq.

Lots more at the link, Stacy has been all over this and continues to doggedly pursue the truth. More and more rats are sent scurrying as the light shines on them. No wonder the Left hates him. Stacy also has news of a motion for an injunction filed Friday on behalf of Aaron Walker

The following press release was just posted:

Walker v. Kimberlin Complaint and Motion

“Waiting to Exhale” author Terry McMillan managed to squeeze just about every anti-Republican stereotype into a stream of Twitter rants yesterday.

Oh, and she also compared members of the Grand Old Party to Hitler for good measure.

Terry McMillan GOP Hitler tweet

McMillan, known by many for using her May/December romance with a man who turned out to be gay to inspire her bestseller “How Stella Got Her Groove Back,” told her Twitter followers she’s never been more scared of the big, bad, racist GOP.

What follows, courtesy of Twitchy, is a hodge podge of pro-censorship, anti-logic comments capped by some lousy grammar.

I wish the Fox folks and Rush Limbaugh could get fined or thrown off the air for spreading lies. It should be a violation of ethics.

However, what the Republicans have made crystal clear is how racists they are & how many people in this country are too. And not hiding it.

Notice that the only thing the Republicans really worry about is money. Theirs. Not yours.

What kills me is how religious Republicans purport to be but they aren’t civil nor know anything about compassion & empathy. Hypocrites.

The Republicans are insulting Americans intelligence at a base level. That’s how arrogant they are. I am feeling apoplectic about now.

At least the media, especially MSNBC, is starting to call out the GOP on all of their antics and tactics. They’re hypocrisy is going to hurt

God grief! How bad is this woman’s education, or should I ask how effective her indoctrination went? She sounds like she swallowed every last drop of the Obama Kool-Aid, then dove head-first into the punch bowl of Leftist Propaganda Punch! I read her bio on her website, and marveled at her childhood, and her upbringing sounded like it would produce a Conservative, not  a raving moonbat Leftist. But, then, I got to this part, and I must ask how her transfer from community college to UC Berkeley impacted her

Terry soon relocated again, transferring to UC Berkeley. The Black Power renaissance of the late 70’s was as serious as her afro was high. Her time in college was preparation for a career: a job that paid. Terry wanted to become a social worker, a stable job that would also allow her to save the world.

Ah, Black Power indoctrination might be at play here. As could be time spent at UC Berkeley. Sad that such a gifted writer seems still stuck in the past. Yes, it is well to remember the past, it can teach us much, but this woman seems, like many Liberals, to be entrenched in the bad old days. Like many Liberals, once “educated”, she seems to have closed her mind to differing views. Perhaps she prefers to emote her way through life. What a shame. She prefers to wallow in ignorance, and bitterness I suppose.

She would do herself a tremendous favor by broadening her horizons. Maybe actually get to know some Republicans instead of assuming we are all greedy and rich, and OF COURSE, racist!

And you ask why I loathe Mike Huckabee so?

Ed blogged about this earlier, but I wanted to add my two cents. Mike Huckabee opened his new radio show with a staged caller

If you launch a new radio show as a rival to Rush Limbaugh, it’s probably best not to do it the way Mike Huckabee just did.

Huckabee, who started a new program through Cumulus Media Network on Monday, is trying to carve out listenership from a conservative base that listens to Limbaugh religiously from 12-3p every day. In other words, he’s unashamedly going to war for the same listeners. But the conservative outlet The American Spectator was tipped out off to something interesting on the first day of Huckabee’s new show that might not help that cause: the first “listener” to call in was actually a radio executive involved in the show. And no one revealed that important detail.

Translation: as the Spectator says, it was a “planted call.”

“The very first phone call, arriving some fifty minutes into the show. To anyone with an ear for talk radio it had a startling quality,” the Spectator’s Jeffrey Lord, former Reagan White House political director, writes. “Why?”

“No one seemed to remember to give the call-in number to the audience until the very last few seconds of those first fifty minutes. But yet… presto!… within seconds, Mike Huckabee did in fact have a caller on the line! Without ever questioning how that caller could have gotten on that line in less time than it takes Obama to blame Bush for anything!”

The caller turned out to be none other than Mike McVay, the senior vice president of programming for Cumulus Media Network. Hmmm, a corny planted call. A corny stunt that anyone could tell was staged? What a shocker that Huckaphoney would go that route! Like I have said, Huck is a televangelist with a better hair cut. He is as fake as a three dollar bill, so this stunt really suited him perfectly!

One thing though, Huckabee did get something out of today, he earned my Daley Douchebag Award!

UPDATE! Dan Riehl hates Huck as much as I do, and offers his own Huck-a-Slap

How prophetic! And you know Mike “The Huckster” Huckabee knows what “prophetic” means. How is he going to get right with the Lord after this one? I mean, Jeff Lord at AmSpec, of course, who busts Mike Huckabee for the very first caller into the Huckster’s brand new (and born to fail) radio show being a staged caller? Worse, it was his boss and they hid that fact from … well, I was going to say listeners – unfortunately, I’m not sure he had any. A man’s faith can only accomplish so much and I don’t have much faith in Huck cutting it on the radio. Somehow, I think he’d play better at a funeral.

 

Worst strategic move evah!

So, Mike Huckabee, or Mike Hokeybee as I call him, is going to get into the talk radio business. OK, fine, he might make it,  but if he is going to go up against Rush, then, Huck’s tenure will be brief! And that is a good thing

(POLITICO) — Rush Limbaugh, the longstanding undisputed king of conservative talk radio who’s been dogged by controversy recently, is about to face some more heat. Not from the left, but this time from the right.

On Monday, former Arkansas governor and one-time Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee will launch a three-hour radio program on almost 200 stations across the country, going voice-to-voice with Limbaugh in the noon-to-3 p.m. time slot, Monday through Friday.

Cumulus Media, which owns and operates the new program, is already pitching Huckabee to listeners and advertisers as the “safe alternative” to a man who has recently found himself under weeks of intense fire — not for the first time — and who some believe could be vulnerable to a challenge from someone offering a kinder, gentler conservative voice.

“Our tagline is, ‘More conversation, less confrontation’,” Huckabee told POLITICO. “I’m going to treat every guest with respect and civility. Nobody is going to come on and get into a shouting match with me. That’s just not my style.”

Making a direct comparison with Limbaugh, John Dickey, the co-COO of Cumulus Media, adds, “This is going to be safer from a commercial standpoint, and more respectful from a listener’s perspective. I think that environment has been sorely lacking in talk radio.”

“Safe radio”? What is Huckabee going to broadcast with a condom on his mic? Give me a break, Huckabee is a used car salesman in  a better suit, and he has  less chance of hurting Rush’s ratings than he does being a genuine Conservative!

What is the difference between Ed Schultz and a pile of monkey dung?

The monkey dung likely has some legitimate purpose! Via Breitbart TV

Understand this. Ed Schultz has no idea what actually happened that night. Zimmerman might have been within his rights, we shall see when all the evidence is seen. Zimmerman has not “walked free”. He might face charges still, and yes Ed we might come to find that Zimmerman was to blame, if so, put him in jail. But, what if Martin was to blame, we have an eye-witness that supports Zimmerman’s version of the events. Why do you continue to ignore that Ed? Oh, of course, it does not fit your narrative!

Further, Ed points out that there have been 65 “deaths” since the laws’ passage. And what about those “deaths” Ed? What were the circumstances Ed? Why did you just throw out the “65 deaths” line? Could it be that those deaths were legitimate cases of self-defense? Why is telling the whole story so tough Ed? And while we are talking truth Ed, try this on for size. The fact is you could not give a damn less about that dead kid! You care about one thing Ed. Exploiting his death for all it is worth.

The despicability of the tragedy pimps

One of the most sickening things I can think of is how some people, usually Leftists, will try to use anything, even a tragedy, for some political gain. Take for example, the death of Travon Martin. Donald Douglas blogged about this today,and he echoes many of my feelings

Actually, I’m not criticizing the outrage over this shooting. What I am criticizing is the left’s politicization of it. See Gateway Pundit, “It Begins… Far Left Media Ties Trayvon Martin Killing to Rush Limbaugh (Video).” Follow the link there to MSNBC analyst and Democratic strategist Karen Finney, who makes an aggressive attempt link the GOP presidential candidates to the death of Trayvon Martin.

Newsbustersreported:

MSNBC analyst and Democratic strategist Karen Finney disgustingly smeared Rush Limbaugh and several Republican presidential candidates on Thursday, charging that the racist hate of these conservatives had “lethal consequences” in the case of Trayvon Martin, an African American teen shot in Florida.

After decrying “bigotry and stereotypes tak[ing] over our better judgment,” Finney sneeringly insisted that when “Rush Limbaugh calls a presidential candidate, Senator Barack Obama, a magic negro…In the case of Trayvon, those festering stereotypes had lethal consequences.”

How low are these miscreants willing to go? Karen Finney ought to be ashamed of herself. She does not give a flip about Travon Martin, or his grieving parents. Frankly, I do not see how a person like her sleeps at night. Back to Donald Douglas’s piece though

It’s sick and disgusting and really has no place in the discussion. (And don’t even get me started on this: Farrakhan Tweets: ‘Where There Is No Justice, There Will Be No Peace…Law of Retaliation May…Be Applied’.”)

Farrakhan and his followers are boils on the ass of this nation. Sorry, but that is the hard truth. Of course, the Left or their willing lapdogs in the media will never call Farrakhan on his outright call to violence will they?

And while it’s elevated, the discussion from last night’s PBS NewsHour isn’t that much better. I’m interested especially in the commentary from The Altantic‘s racial-grivance columnist Ta-Nehisi Coates, who is interviewed. Listening to the guy he’s clearly less impressive an intellectual when one actually hears his patter on television. He sounds not much more than a homie with a suit. Worse though is this Donna Britt lady, who says “Thank God” Treyvon Martin “looks like a kid … he looks like someone who is young and vulnerable and who matters. And that’s part of the reason why people have responded so much…” That’s really cold and offensive — it wouldn’t matter if the victim was a genuine black thug? — and it’s a way for black intellectuals to completely discount — even hide — the real pathologies in the black community. For example, I’m no fan of Geraldo Rivero, but I think he’s right to point out that the way the boy was dressed could have been a factor in his killing. So notice the discrepancy here: A black intellectual confesses that we should thank God that the boy wasn’t an invulnerable hardened criminal, and that’s “part of the reason people have responded so much,” but when Geraldo Rivera speaks out on gangsta attire that’s victim blaming.” Honestly, only on the left do you see these kinds of disgusting double standards.

Once more, the heartlessness of the Left is exposed. Rather than mourning a young life tragically lost, they only seem to care about how they can pimp that tragedy for their own gain. What a sorry bunch of bastards!

Oh no, not ANOTHER blogger!

Just kidding, blogging is good, although not ALL blogs, or bloggers are good, or worth your time. But, in general, I welcome new bloggers. And so, Bristol Palin is now blogging, as Smitty and Bob Belvedere note today. Smitty also notes that Palin is now more relevant than a certain other “blogger” you know,the one with the Massive Melons

And, instantly, becomes more important than “warmly conformly” Meghan McCain. See, Meghan: if you show some moral courage, despite life’s adversities, you too could eventually be worthy of respect.

Meghan McCain, of course might grow up enough one day to realize that she is not as “hip”as she thinks. Sure, the media fawns over her now.She says what the media wants her to say about Republicans. In other words, Meghan bashes Republicans while claiming to be one. Naturally, if Meghan ever dares to praise Conservatives, the media will turn on her. But, she is simply too naive to understand that.

As to Bristol Palin, one of her first posts covered the Left’s Selective Outrage Syndrome over women’s issues.

Dear President Obama,

You don’t know my telephone number, but I hope your staff is busy trying to find it. Ever since you called Sandra Fluke after Rush Limbaugh called her a slut, I figured I might be next.  You explained to reporters you called her because you were thinking of your two daughters, Malia and Sasha.  After all, you didn’t want them to think it was okay for men to treat them that way:

“One of the things I want them to do as they get older is engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them on,” you said.  “I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way. And I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re being good citizens.”

And I totally agree your kids should be able to speak their minds and engage the culture.  I look forward to seeing what good things Malia and Sasha end up doing with their lives.

But here’s why I’m a little surprised my phone hasn’t rung.  Your $1,000,000 donor Bill Maher has said reprehensible things about my family.  He’s made fun of my brother because of his Down’s Syndrome. He’s said I was “f—-d so hard a baby fell out.”  (In a classy move, he did this while his producers put up the cover of my book, which tells about the forgiveness and redemption I’ve found in God after my past – very public — mistakes.)

If Maher talked about Malia and Sasha that way, you’d return his dirty money and the Secret Service would probably have to restrain you.  After all, I’ve always felt you understood my plight more than most because your mom was a teenager.  That’s why you stood up for me when you were campaigning against Sen. McCain and my mom — you said vicious attacks on me should be off limits.

Yet I wonder if the Presidency has changed you.  Now that you’re in office, it seems you’re only willing to defend certain women.  You’re only willing to take a moral stand when you know your liberal supporters will stand behind you.

Of course,that was the 2008 campaigning Obama. Trying to paint himself as a uniter,and non-partisan. That,of course,was all a facade, as I am sure Bristol Palin knows.

Good job, Bristol, and welcome
