Big Truthy is watching (some of) you by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 This week, President Obama launched a prominent social media campaign on behalf of "net neutrality" and urged the FCC to "keep the Internet free and open." The man has gall. This is the same speech-squelcher in chief whose administration snooped on... Read More
The fake beef restaurant chain tries to undo the damage from its manufactured anti-Rush Limbaugh campaign last week. Too late. Read the latest from Twitchy here. *** Previous: Kabuki: Arby’s fakes a Rush Limbaugh advertising protest; Update: Walgreen’s joins hands with Soros mob Attention, conservatives: Arby’s doesn’t want your business or your tweets
Last night, I linked to the story about Arby's blocking conservatives on Twitter for protesting the company's protest of conservative talk show giant Rush Limbaugh. Today, the Right Sphere notes that Arby's president is a big Democrat donor. Here's the bottom line on this latest manufactured attempt by the Hush Rush mob to make it... Read More
I'm putting my money where my conservative, free-market principles are. The full announcement about our new Twitchy.com ad buy with Rush Limbaugh is here. A snippet: “As a small business owner, defender of capitalism, and advocate of free speech, I am putting my money where my conservative, free-market principles are. TWITCHY.COM is proud to join...

The war on conservative women by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 I'm sorry Rush Limbaugh called 30-year-old Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a "slut." She's really just another professional femme-a-gogue helping to manufacture a false narrative about the GOP "war on women." I'm sorry the civility police now have an opening to demonize the...

Capital hypocrisy. The Soros-Think Progress-Center for American Progress-White House complex is at it again. And don't for a second think that the Soros monkeys aren't fully coordinating with the Obama administration. The latest post at Think Progress trumpets a quote from an unidentified Capitol One bank spokesperson: According to that quote, the company doesn't know... Read More
Barack Obama said he was going to go to Washington to change politics as usual. But after two decades of left-wing attempts to silence Rush Limbaugh, Barack Obama and his "progressive" tolerance police are still...trying to silence Rush Limbaugh. As usual. I weighed in on the Sandra Fluke kerfuffle on Friday before President Obama took... Read More
The Soros monkeys and assorted progressive agitators are using conservative radio giant Rush Limbaugh to raise money again. This just came in my in-box: "What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke [sic] who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex -- what does...

Oh, dear. Golf pro Paul Azinger has offended the P.C. gods at ESPN. Why? He joked on Twitter about Obama golfing. Elisabeth Meinecke at Townhall.com noticed his light-hearted tweet yesterday: Several conservative bloggers and Twitter users shared Azinger's jab, which apparently set off the ESPN censor alarm. USA Today reported earlier today: ESPN is coming... Read More
Sigh. Seriously, Tina Brown? Yes, I'm talking about you, Oxford University-educated Newsweek/Daily Beast editor Tina Brown. You've resorted to recycling bottom-of-the-barrel moonbat photo cliches about conservative female public figures and their enraged "crazy eyes?" Really? Who's in charge of Newsweek cover graphics now -- a Media Matters Soros Monkey? A random Daily Kos commenter? Keith... Read More
When last we visited the financial monkey business taking place in race-hustling Rev. Al Sharpton's non-profit "National Action Network" last September, an internal audit showed delinquent taxes, shoddy bookkeeping, and campaign finance law-skirting. The hijinks continue unabated. Yesterday, the NYPost reported a new tax tab for Sharpton and Co.: Perhaps Sharpton's rent-a-mobsters should get out... Read More
Tucson massacre + Red Queen politics = Hate Speech Inquisition. I noticed a new game the blamestream media is playing this week. It's the same game they played with Sarah Palin last week: Blame the victim. After a slew of Democrat leaders issued open threats against talk radio, conservative radio hosts rose up to defend...

And now we have the latest moronic MSNBC smear tactic. Via William Jacobson: Guilt by high school classmate. Yes, the left has found a way to play the Rush Limbaugh card in the Koran-burning case: Liberal rules of association: 1) It's beyond the bounds to point out an intimate, 20-year relationship between Barack Obama and...

He is not a useful idiot. He's just an idiot.
Scroll for updates... Ew. As I mentioned this afternoon, Democrat Rep. Eric Massa owes much of his career and political success to anti-war nutball Gen. Wesley Clark. Massa served under Clark and worked on Clark's doomed presidential campaign. Clark provided the cash-strapped Massa critical PAC support, nutroots help, and funding for Massa's congressional bid. Gen.... Read More
Please keep Rush in your prayers: More at the Rush Limbaugh website. He is "resting comfortably" now. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Busy with family. Throwing out a couple discussion topics: * What good is an "opposition" party that wants to elect its own worst opponents? Related: Where is Sarah Palin? * Rush shreds the RAAAAAAACIST card. Related: First newspaper retracts fake RAAAACIST Rush quotes. * Out: Dissent is patriotic! In: Fox News Channel's dissenting anchors are... Read More
Another must-read from Diana West.
Scroll for updates...Rush dropped from Rams bid... The apocalyptic hysteria over Rush Limbaugh's interest in buying an NFL team is yet another stark reminder of the limits (and double standards) of left-wing tolerance. Doug Powers lists the cretins the NFL welcomes into the fold. As for partisanship in sports, there's Obama-philic Steelers owner Dan Rooney.... Read More
In case you missed it yesterday, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck spotlighted Team Obama's direct and indirect threats to free speech -- and how the Fairness Doctrine (or some stealthier form of it) might be reinstituted. Watch the whole thing. Rush has the full transcript. An excerpt: BECK: Now joining me on the phone is... Read More
The far Left Center for American Progress has its tentacles everywhere. I noted in my column on the Internet Snitch Brigade this morning that former CAP operatives have been installed at HHS and work closely with the health care czar. At Newsbusters, Seton Motley reports on the new FCC "Diversity Officer" -- a racial engineering... Read More
Godwin's Law gone wild.
I just received an un-freaking-believable e-mail from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The entire Democrat machine has been tarring Tea Party activists and townhall protesters as Brown Shirts and fascists...and now they're whining about Rush Limbaugh challenging their own fascist behavior. When in trouble, bash Rush. Who needs the Comedy Channel? It's Godwin's Law gone... Read More
RDS fizzles.
(Thanks to Don Surber for sending photo) I said last week that Democrat donors ought to question whether the DNC was using its money wisely by indugling in an anti-Rush Limbaugh billboard. See, I told you so. The Christian Science Monitor skewers the results: New Limbaugh billboard slogan announced - creativity was not considered Setting... Read More
It wasn't Rush Limbaugh who ruined conservatism over the last eight years. Diana West says what 99 percent of Republican talking heads and strategists and self-designated defenders of conservatism won't say. Read her latest post to see who the real problem has been. Hint: It's the guy who said this... And the guy who did... Read More
Jeri Thompson in the American Spectator diagnoses RDS:
Just arrived in my emailbox from the DNC: Solicitations for a new anti-Rush Limbaugh billboard the Democrat Party plans to put up in Palm Beach, Florida. Do Democrat donors really think this is the best use of their money? Knock yourselves out: I'm Jen O'Malley Dillon, the new Executive Director of the Democratic National Committee.... Read More
"Craven squish."
Here's Mark Steyn on Michael Steele: Yes. And Steyn's assessment is doubly reinformced by Steele's failure -- then and now -- to rebut D.L. Hughley's "Nazi Germany" slur against GOP conventioneers.
Scroll for updates...Steele non-apologizes to Limbaugh...No word on the "Nazi Germany"/GOP convention slur... I said positive things about RNC chairman Michael Steele this weekend on Washington Journal (link here) and have covered his rise extensively. Now, a word of friendly advice: There's nothing wrong with criticizing Rush Limbaugh. But if you are going to go... Read More
"I am effective and thus have to be marginalized as an extremist, fringe figure."
I interviewed Rush Limbaugh for a special Sunday piece for the New York Post about President Obama's attack on him (and, by extension of course, talk radio and grass-roots conservatism). The Post titled the piece, "The Rush Revival." But it's more accurately the anti-Rush revival and the Rush Survival. As you'll see, one of my... Read More
MoveOn.org hasn't moved on yet from demonizing Rush Limbaugh. He responded to their latest attack ad last night on Mark Levin's show. Radio Equalizer Brian Maloney's got the scoop.
Know-nothings.
Here is something I've found to be invariably true of the loudest Rush Limbaugh-bashers in Washington and Manhattan: They don't actually listen to him and have no idea what he talks about day to day. They criticize a figment of Rush in their heads, which is echoed and amplified by liberal media elites who share... Read More
Question: How does a RINO secure a position in the Obama administration? Answer: Bash Rush Limbaugh.
Amen to this. Here's a helpful list of the Republicans who don't deserve any thanks or praise: The 65 who took a dive. As the bailout water-carriers try and drum up support for a do-over, watch their language. The same people who tried to tell you that amnesty was not amnesty are now trying to... Read More
Great communicator.
Today marks the 20th anniversary of Rush Limbaugh's talk radio career. Huzzahs, hooahs, and congrats! Be sure to tune it at high noon and check out the festivities at RL's website, including a special message from Vice President Cheney. (Update - Nice: President Bush and Gov. Jeb Bush, along with former President George H.W. Bush,... Read More
Make some noise.
The most anti-conservative rhetoric against conservative talk radio these days is coming from supposedly free-market conservatives. It's disgusting. Author Mark Helprin's grenade in The Wall Street Journal stands out. Yesterday, he launched an attack on conservative radio hosts who oppose presumptive GOP presidential nominee John McCain. Helprin sneered that their "major talent is that, like... Read More
Electile dysfunction.
Update: The McCain camp goes after Romney for razzing Bob Dole--by hauling out the Absolute Moral Authority card. Geez. *** A long, long time ago, I worked in the political videotape library at NBC News in Washington. We logged field tapes, input rough transcriptions with time codes, and helped compile clip reels. The liberal producers... Read More
Fight the stifling of anti-McCain dissent.
Your lunchtime read. Discuss amongst yourselves.
Here are two things the liberal media desperately want to be true: 1) John McCain's inevitable GOP presidential victory. 2) Rush Limbaugh's demise. Wrong on both counts, as usual. Despite a nasty-sounding bug, a gravelly-voiced Limbaugh took to the airwaves this afternoon to rightly mock the Washington Post's premature obituary of conservatives who've gone after... Read More
Collector's item.
Time's running out on Rush Limbaugh's fantastic eBay auction of Harry Reid's bully letter to Clear Channel. Proceeds will benefit the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation. For those who can't compete on the bids, you can download your own copy of the letter. Heh!
"I've been man enough to apologize."
Geraldo Rivera should really learn to keep his mouth shut. Here he is, via Johnny Dollar, demanding that Rush Limbaugh be "man enough" to apologize for his incontrovertibly true statements about phony soldiers propped up by the moonbat movement. (Forward the audio to 2:30 in.) Yup, more chutzpit from the Rosie O'Donnell of Fox News.... Read More
ShutUp.org Democrats.
Democrat Rep. Mark Udall is spearheading the resolution condemning Rush Limbaugh. It apparently has 19 co-sponsors now. Meantime, Colorado Sen. Ken Salazar has started a censure bandwagon: Guess he's trying to get back into the nutroots' good graces after signing onto the resolution condemning MoveOn. The Daily Sentinel also points out that Salazar's brother is... Read More
Geese and ganders.
Just like you can't be a little bit pregnant, you can't be a little bit nutroots. If you are going to throw your lot in with the MoveOn/MediaMatters mob, you do it all the way. Democrat House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer appears to have some misgivings about the Crush Rush Express. First, he talks the... Read More
Crushing of dissent.
Update Midnight: Poor Daily Kos is feeling left out of the Rush-bashing action. Kos promotes VoteVets.org diatribe to the front page. Lonewacko has advice on how to fight back. Another target. Update 8:35pm Eastern. Backdoor restoration of the Fairness Doctrine, take two: Wesley Clark ramps up the nutroots' campaign to kick Rush Limbaugh off of... Read More
Stolen Valor.
Update 2:40pm Eastern. Remember Josh Lansdale? The left doesn't want you to... Full background here. Update 12:30pm Eastern 10/2. Crikey. The moonbats launch an anti-Rush attack ad campaign. Update 12:06pm Eastern 10/2. Rush comments on Harkin, top of his radio show: "I feel like apologizing to his family" for his behavior on the Senate floor.... Read More
Shooting the messenger.
Update: Rush vs. Dingy Harry. Update: Moonbats continue to push to kick Rush off the Armed Forces Network. More here. *** So, word is that the Democrats will introduce a House resolution Monday condemning Rush Limbaugh for his remarks about phony soldiers. Brian Maloney points out that ABC News aired a report on phony soldiers... Read More
The Center for American Progress, a left-wing think tank seeded with Soros money and possessing a vested interest in a...
Bumped 10:20am Eastern update: The Left wants increased regulation to address the lack of ideological diversity in talk radio. What do they have to say about the lack of ideological diversity in America's newsrooms? "Appears" to confirm? Snort. 10:00am Eastern 6/21 update: Mark Levin strikes back. Update: More on the Center for American Progress below... Read More
Update: MSNBC buys time...two-week suspension for Imus...It's a civility offset! Update: Here's vid of my discussion with O'Reilly and Kirsten Powers tonight. I'm really tired of people likening Rush Limbaugh's criticism of Donovan McNabb to Imus's racial epithets. Rush spoke the truth. Sports writer Allen Barra weighed in and his piece in Slate in 2003...

The Jacksonville Times-Union comes to the defense of soldiers who want to listen to Rush Limbaugh. U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, has offered an amendment to the fiscal 2005 Defense Authorization bill, requiring that the armed forces drop Limbaugh's show or also add a liberal for balance. Excerpt: There are plenty of liberal viewpoints on... Read More
