  • The Biggest Threat To Democracy Is Media Hysterics About ‘Threats To Democracy’

    The Federalist ^ | JUNE 21, 2023 | EVITA DUFFY-ALFONSO
    Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is a threat to your health — and our democracy,” reads the headline of a recent Los Angeles Times column. Snip ***** Using the phrase “threat to democracy” as a way of protecting Democrats ahead of a presidential election is a media tradition at this point. Recall how the press promulgated the FBI-contrived Russia-collusion hoax, claiming former President Donald Trump was a “threat to democracy” in order to interfere in the 2016 election and discredit the Trump presidency after he was elected. Today, the media is still trying to thwart a Trump presidency by praising Biden...

    RUSH: Yesterday I made a point that the Democrats and the media are gonna try to find enough Republicans and turn ’em into Jeff Flakes. In fact, let’s start the audio sound bites. To review this, grab audio sound bite number 1. We’ll do 1, 2, and 3. We got some examples of the media trying to do this, and then the piece de resistance is the acknowledgment that they failed. So, here is how I characterized this yesterday. RUSH ARCHIVE: The Drive-By Media is all ecstatic because they think McConnell has already caved by giving an additional day to...

    RUSH: You know, I’ve noticed something that Trump does with these press conferences, and it was hot. It was like 86 degrees when he started. He was out there 38 or 40 minutes. It was 90 degrees when he’s wrapped up and headed to the helicopter. He was sweating profusely but not nervously. Just hot out there. He had sweat dripping down the face; you could see it starting to sweat-stain the dress shirt the president was wearing. But the hair remained intact and did not become helmet hair. It didn’t get wet. The president has that down pat. But...

    IRUSH: Go to the audio sound bites, just to show you what we’re up against here. We have lifetime, record breaking cold because of a polar vortex in the upper Midwest. There is no question we have record breaking cold. I’m gonna tell you, we’ve had sunspot activity that’s been declining. We’ve been reporting on this for the last the eight years. Democrats, media, leftists do not allow any discussion of the sun whenever there is a discussion on climate change. They say the sun is irrelevant to the earth’s climate. Can’t talk about it. But some of this —...

    Breitbart ^ | 27 December 2018 | Matthew Boyle
    NBC News has finally, a full day after being called out for printing the fake news, admitted that its article published on Christmas alleging President Donald Trump snubbed the troops during the holidays this year is incorrect. NBC has altered its headline and story, changing their meaning to remove the original anti-Trump thrust, and added an extended editor’s note beyond the original editor’s note appended when it was first discovered to be an inaccurate piece. The new editor’s note admits in no uncertain terms that NBC News printed fake news, and that it was only leaving the article up in...

    RUSH: So I got a lot of people asking me about this Rob Porter situation. It’s been on the radar here, and I’ve been on the verge of discussing it a couple times. I gotta be honest with you, though, folks. I looked at this as something that I have refused to get sucked into using the narratives of the Drive-By Media, because this is clearly the latest — they’re even admitting it. This Porter situation to them, they think now, after how many months, is the thing, the thing, you know, after the Steele dossier, after Stormy Daniels and...

    RUSH: Jacksonville, Florida. Bobby, great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello. CALLER: Hey, Rush. Good afternoon. RUSH: Great to have you, Bobby. CALLER: (muffled) Thank you. You know, listening to you and the media saying that for eight years they told us that the new norm was like 0.5% or 1% GDP. Unemployment was supposed to go up. Food stamps. More people were on food stamps. For eight years, we heard about it. Now Trump has been in office for one year and the economy is booming. How can they…? I can’t figure out the media. What do...

    RUSH: So I’m watching CNN today and I’m cracking up. I literally am cracking up. Now, I knew, I knew the Drive-By Media was gonna try to do everything they could to avoid reporting that Hillary and the DNC bought and paid for and created that crap that got turned into intelligence that was used by the intelligence agencies to try to take out Donald Trump. But I never imagined — and I should have; I’m slipping — I never imagined that they would try to turn this around to prove that Trump was colluding with Russia, and that’s what...

    Rush ^ | September 7, 2017 | Rush Limbaugh
    RUSH: Now, I want to say here at the start that I know the vast majority of you in this audience have at best a passing interest in the approaching hurricane, Hurricane Irma. If you live anywhere west of Florida or Georgia or South Carolina, North Carolina, you probably don’t care that much. I remember when I grew up in Missouri, the weather would tell us when hurricanes hit, but it was nothing that was ever gonna affect us, and so there was not a direct emotional connection to it. We knew of it. We didn’t get mad at it...

    The New York Sun ^ | 22 Nov 2016 | Conrad Black
    As there is an incessant crescendo, still gaining in volume each week, about President Obama’s “legacy,” I thought it appropriate to try to identify this legacy, which his supporters believe history will honor. I have written here and elsewhere that, apart from breaking the color barrier and disposing of bin Laden, I am hard pressed to think of anything useful in his legacy. Never have I been an Obama hater or someone who disputed his patriotism. I do think that Mr. Obama is rather subdued about the tired pieties of “American exceptionalism” and that this is not unjustified given his...

    The People's Repudiation Of Media Influence Thus, despite the media's best efforts to defeat Trump through a barrage of negative news stories, most Americans appeared not to be swayed by media coverage. Election Day provided the most definitive proof of both the media's bias against Trump and the people's repudiation of its attempts to influence the election narrative. Heading into the day of the vote, most news outlets were confident that Clinton would become the 45th president of the United States, as they pointed to poll after poll showing the former secretary of state comfortably leading Trump. This coverage seemed...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I would love to see the eggs that Anthony Weiner hatched from. Does this guy not know, does he have not the slightest idea how the internet works? After having been caught once, does he have no idea how nothing on the internet is private? If you listen to the Drive-By Media, the biggest scandal about the Huma Weiner and the Carlos Danger contretemps is that Trump is using it to question Hillary's judgment. Yeah, they're trying to build a wall around Huma Weiner. "It's just unconscionable how Donald Trump would seek to exploit the pain and...

The first 11 sound bites are me and the Drive-By Media reacting to me and something that happened on this show last week. Now, I do not watch news broadcast on the weekend, maybe Sunday night just to get back into the flow. I don't watch the Sunday shows, and I haven't in a long time, and it's only because I know what they're gonna be, even before they air, even before the guest lists with published. I know what...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: What is the big thing that everybody's talking about still? Trump's flip-flopping on immigration. That's a bigger topic today on cable news than whether or not Trump is a racist, sexist, bigot whatever. In fact, the way CNN's covering this is Trump, Hillary trade barbs on racism. What? You mean the coverage isn't Hillary Clinton nails Donald Trump as the racist pig we all know he is? No. The coverage is Trump, Hillary exchange barbs on racist allegations. What? You mean the Republican is being given some sort of, if not credibility, you mean a Republican accusing...

    Jeb Bush was ready to counterpunch at Wednesday night’s debate when asked about Donald Trump’s statement that politicians could be bought. "The one guy that had some special interests that I know of that tried to get me to change my views on something—that was generous and gave me money—was Donald Trump," Bush said. "He wanted casino gambling in Florida." That’s when Trump cut him off—and failed to tell the truth. “I didn't,” Trump said. Read more: more than 21 years, Trump did. He and his company have repeatedly been on record trying to get casino deals in one...
  • Bristol Palin Calls Off Memorial Day Weekend Wedding to Fiance Dakota Meyer

The Dancing With the Stars alum, 24, was planning to marry Marine Dakota Meyer on Saturday, May 23, but has called off her wedding, mom Sarah Palin revealed via Facebook on Monday, May 18. The former Republican vice presidential candidate, 51, broke the news by sharing a picture of a quote from InstaGod Ministries: "Trust in God's timing.

    politico ^ | Nov. 19, 2014 | HADAS GOLD
    The White House is exasperated with the major broadcast networks – ABC, CBS and NBC -- for skipping out on President Barack Obama’s Thursday primetime address on his executive actions on immigration. “In 2006, Bush gave a 17 minute speech that was televised by all three networks that was about deploying 6000 national guard troops to the border. Obama is making a 10 minute speech that will have a vastly greater impact on the issue. And none of the networks are doing it. We can’t believe they were aggrieved that we announced this on Facebook,” a senior administration official told...

I've always been under the impression that they thought Reagan was stupid. Maybe on a good day they'd call him an amiable dunce. But I've always been under the impression they had no respect for him. People that voted for Reagan were stupid. Reagan was dangerous. Reagan was gonna blow up the world. If it weren't for Gorbachev, who knows if there would even be a planet...

    Everything I initially wrote about the Trayvon Martin killing was based on network news reports. And it was almost entirely wrong. In my KOMO radio commentary of March 23, 2012, I said the following about the killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman: “Thinking of 17-year old Trayvon the way we’d think of our own kids is exactly how to view this tragedy. The man who police say shot him, George Zimmerman, is a 28-year old CrimeWatch volunteer, who apparently did just about everything a Crimewatch volunteer SHOULDN’T do, such as following the 17 year old teen when a 911...

    RUSH: Again, I want to go back. There are two polling groups that have pulled out of Virginia (one of them a month ago) saying that it's over in and North Carolina. Suffolk Polling pulled out. They’re thinking, “It's over there. We're not gonna spend any more money there.” Another poll pulled out of Florida yesterday or the day before. But the Drive-Bys continue to poll these states, obviously, and the Drive-Bys continue to put out polling data. “It's tied! It's Obama here, Obama there, Romney there!” Nobody knows. That's why I say it's a turnout election now. It really...
