  • The Hidden Story Behind "Stop Rush"

    The Rush Limbaugh Show Exposes the Stop Rush Conspiracy  September 23, 2014- The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s newest email spam, asking their recipients to sign a petition calling for sponsors to end their relationship with The Rush Limbaugh Show, is based on the two-year-old Stop Rush political protest as it’s inspiration. After an investigation, The Rush Limbaugh Show has discovered a far darker story to Stop Rush, and is today releasing the hidden story of the people and motives behind the Stop Rush conspiracy. The Stop Rush group claims to be made up of ordinary consumers unhappy with Rush Limbaugh’s...

    Some House Democrats have urged cable companies to cancel Fox News, Newsmax TV, and One America News Network ahead of a Wednesday hearing on extremism in the press.In 1801, Thomas Jefferson became the third president of the United States. In his Inaugural Address, he urged our fledgling nation to stand strong against those who would restrict the right to free speech. He even described those “who would wish to dissolve this Union” as “monuments of safety with which the error of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left free to combat it.” As president, Jefferson was an ardent defender...

    Many cities across the country are displaying “Black Lives Matter” murals, but one city has done away with its mural after a Trump supporter asked to paint “MAGA 2020” on the same street. Redwood City, California, resident Dan Pease got permission from city officials to paint the “Black Lives Matter” mural as part of a Fourth of July public art installation. The city even gave him paint to do the project. “Because we were using the poster board paint that would eventually deteriorate over time, my understanding from them was that the mural would last as long as the paint...

    How to get Black Lives Matter paintings off the street. In Redwood City, California, an inspired attorney had a novel approach to removing a city-funded mural on the street stating, “Black Lives Matter.” Maria Rutenburg told Redwood City that if it was going to turn the pavement into a public forum, people with alternative views should also get free speech access. Rutenburg then asked the city to paint ‘MAGA 2020’ next to black lives matter. The city quickly decided to remove the BLM graffiti.

    Former First Lady Michelle Obama has been given a show by PBS starting next week, the taxpayer funded network announced Friday. The timing of the announcement comes after Democrats marked $75 million for PBS’s parent the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in the coronavirus relief bill that passed at the end of March. Newsbusters reported the $75 million is on top of the $465 million given CPB in the current year’s federal budget, which is an increase of $20 million over the previous year.

    KUHNER: Obama's Tucson degradation President turned memorial program into political rally By Jeffrey T. Kuhner The Washington Times Thursday, January 13, 2011 President Obama is cynically exploiting the tragic shooting in Tucson for political gain. His memorial address Wednesday night was a surreal spectacle in narcissistic self-congratulation. It dishonored the victims... Instead of being a solemn and serious event, the memorial resembled a pro-Obama pep rally. The president of Arizona University praised Mr. Obama for his "visionary" and "courageous" leadership.... students regularly cheered, clapped, whistled and hollered. All the while, the president basked in his newfound glory.... Mr. Obama lectured...

    Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow is a leading advocate of reinstating the free speech destroying “Fairness Doctrine” for talk radio. “Whether it’s called the Fairness Standard, whether it’s called something else,” she told journalist Bill Press, “I absolutely think it’s time to be bringing accountability to the airwaves.” Where did the woman get such totalitarian attitudes? Here’s a possible answer.

    Regulation: "Net neutrality" has become the Holy Grail of various so-called consumer organizations. But government regulation isn't what consumers need. Competition is. And there would be more of that if the government would get out of the way. On Thursday, the Federal Communications Commission voted 2-1 to start undoing the massive expansion of the FCC's regulatory control over the internet, enacted two years ago by the Obama administration under the guise of protecting "net neutrality." From the reaction — or more accurately, the overreaction — from advocacy groups and know-nothing pundits, you'd think they'd just voted to exterminate the internet....

    Apple is one of ten tech giants to once again call on the US Government not to reauthorize the Patriot Act in its current form. The Act expires on 1st June unless it is renewed by Congress. Apple was joined by AOL, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Twitter and Yahoo.In an open letter to President Obama, NSA Director Admiral Rogers and other prominent government figures, the companies urge Congress to end the bulk collection of communications metadata–the logs that determine how and when ordinary citizens contact each other.The letter says that mass surveillance must end, and that a revised bill must contain mechanisms to ensure...

    Sen. Ted Cruz’s nascent campaign for the White House is running into its first signs of digital trouble. While the firebrand Texas Republican prepares to announce his bid for the presidency on Monday morning, he does not appear to have control over the most obvious website to rally supporters: Instead, people trying to visit that site will get the opposite message. “Support President Obama,” the site says in simple white text on a black background. “Immigration reform now!” According to Internet records, was created in April of 2004 but then switched ownership last spring.

    The Week ^ | 03/18/2015 | Catherine Garcia via James Rosen, From PLAYBOY interview with Dick Cheney
    In a new interview with Playboy, former Vice President Dick Cheney accused President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder of "playing the race card" and said that he could "go on for hours" about all of the ways Obama has "undone" the work of President George W. Bush.Although the article claims that Cheney's "preoccupations revolve around the books in his study and the purchase of just the right gifts for his grandchildren," it sounds more like he's kind of obsessed with Obama. Calling him "the worst president in my lifetime," Cheney said his criticism of Obama and Holder has nothing...

    Getty - TORSTEN SILZ / Staff Global tech giant Google submitted public court comments this week calling the FBI’s new plan for obtaining digital search warrants a “serious and complex” constitutional concern.Google’s comments are warning of a new Justice Department program that would allow judges more flexibility in approval of search warrants for electronic data.The company’s director of law enforcement and information security says that the plan to alter an existing provision, known as Rule 41: “…raises a number of monumental and highly complex constitutional, legal, and geopolitical concerns that should be left to Congress to decide.” According to National Journal, Rule 41 of criminal procedure, “permits judges to grant search...

    Republican senators Mike Lee, Ben Sasse, and Rand Paul have all been high profile opponents of the Obama administrations current plan to regulate the internet -- in particular, Lee has called the regulation a government "takeover" of the internet and says it amounts to a "a massive tax increase on the middle class, being passed in the dead of night without the American public really being made aware of what is going on.” And when Lee says that the American public isn't aware of what's going on, that is in no way hyperbole. FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai has emerged as...

    The left lifts its boot toward the free flow of information We knew this was coming. Within the last couple of weeks, both the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Election Commission declared their intention to regulate the Internet. Fascists always explain their actions as efforts to either make something more efficient, “fair,” or to supposedly “protect” their target. Sometimes they simply lie, like saying they’re nationalizing health insurance to make it more affordable and to increase access to health care. Now, with the feds’ latest effort, their new slogan might as well be, “If you like your Internet, you...

    Hack on Sony, Net Neutrality, Fairness Doctrine, and the Internet Kill Switch Citing the cyber attacks on Sony, President Obama is proposing the creation of a federal cyber attack center. The idea is to model it after the National Counterterrorism Center. From the article: “We need to develop the same muscle memory in the government response to cyberthreats as we have for terrorist incidents,” Lisa Monaco, White House adviser for homeland security and counterterrorism, said in a speech Tuesday. President Barack Obama is expected to seek industry support for the effort when he addresses Silicon Valley executives Friday at a...
