Half Their Brain Tied Behind Their Back

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

donkeyBy Dr. ROBERT OWENS

Every day to the amazement and delight of more than 20 million people across the fruited plain, Rush Limbaugh performs his host duties flawlessly with half his brain tied behind his back.  Anyone who has ever spent an objective hour listening to his program knows that Rush has a brain the size of a planet.    The Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media assure we now have a President who is always the brightest guy in the room instead of one who didn’t have enough brains to tie his shoes.

In addition, with the exception of his Chicago handlers, casino capitalist cronies, and union dons our photogenic president is surrounded by academics eager to implement theories that worked in their labs and computer models with the American people as guinea pigs.  The Cavalcade of Czars is filled with the best and brightest liberal education has produced since the Summer of Love.  On the Hill Nancy Pelosi rules the House with an iron fist while Harry Reid runs the Senate with parliamentary tricks and his legendary eloquence.  Together they preside over the best Congress money can buy.  The question is can Alinsky’s dream team fight a war on multiple fronts with half their brain tied behind their collectivist back?

Walin’ and Flailin’ on Palin

Sarah Palin made the mistake of being a self-made woman who actually accomplished things in her own right instead of riding her husband’s coattails.  She worked next to her husband founding and managing a small business that continues to flourish.  She was active in local school and community affairs.  She ran for local office serving as a council person and eventually mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.  She took on several positions in the state government. She resigned a high office to battle the insiders who had run the state for years. Elected Governor, she was soon the most popular governor in America.   She accomplished all this without using a family fortune, marrying for money or buying her way into prominence.  She achieved position and influence the old fashioned way; she earned it.

Interview with Walter E. Williams

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

williams2In this exclusive interview, Economics Professor and Rush Limbaugh guest host Walter E. Williams tackles everything from the economy to the Great Depression to “Black Economics” to the perfect gift for the Mrs. this holiday season.

ALL RIGHT MAGAZINE: In your book, Liberty Versus the Tyranny of Socialism, you wrote that American education is “in shambles.”  Simultaneously there is a major push to have more and more people attend college.  These students are the freshmen in your classes, so what’s the most egregious example of miseducation you have seen personally in the classroom?

WALTER E. WILLIAMS: Oh, well.  I’ve seen students who cannot do simple mathematical computations, students who have very poor use of the language.  Let me give you one example.  Some years ago (I haven’t noticed it recently or I haven’t taught the introductory classes where I do get a lot of freshmen.) I’ve come across students writing in their bluebook.  They cite something, and spell it several different ways, site, cite, sight, not being able to differentiate between the various terms.  Then a lot of it is that students are many times just plain lazy.  They don’t want to do the work.  They expect a high grade for a mediocre performance.

Opaque Transparency or Smoke and Mirrors?

Monday, October 26th, 2009

freedomofspeechAssault on Free Speech Continues

By Dr. ROBERT OWENS

Remember the promise of transparency that helped win the Presidency?  All bills passing Congress would be posted for 5 days before signed.  Seems the rules have changed.  Apparently the pledge only applied to NON-emergency bills and everything is an emergency in the New Republic.  The first bill signed into law the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was apparently an emergency.  We had to pass the pork-laden stimulus bill before any of the Best-Congress-Money-Can-Buy could read it; otherwise unemployment might reach the unacceptable 8% range though most of the provisions wouldn’t kick in for months or years.  The Bums-Rush is also being applied to the nationalization of medicine though the provisions of this monstrosity conveniently won’t overwhelm us until after the next presidential election.

In a direct assault against even the possibility of transparency the Chicago trained attack machine in the West Wing (Chicago’s 51st Ward) decided they have the power to decide what constitutes news.   For months they’ve refused to allow anyone on Fox.  This started when Chris Wallace had the bad taste to fact-check several statements made by White House officials and then the inexcusably bad taste to mention the official statements didn’t line up with the facts.  This was bad enough, but Fox commentator Glenn Beck dared to expose Obama advisor Van Jones as a self-proclaimed communist and then air the Acorn prostitution sting the totally transparent Obama Whitehouse decided it was time to muzzle the only major news network not in the tank.  The Obama Whitehouse declared war on Fox News.

Snatching Defeat from the Jaws of Victory Again

Monday, October 19th, 2009

capitol2By Dr. ROBERT OWENS

Never since the mid 1970s when the Water Gate Congress insisted on abandoning our South Vietnamese allies after the war had been won have I seen defeat snatched from the jaws of victory in such a bold and decisive manner.

As I survey the scene in America today I’m beginning to wonder if we would be in any worse shape if we’d lost the Cold War.  From sea to shining sea Americans watch as the once greatest industrial nation on earth board up our factories and ship our manufacturing capacity to other countries.  It seems like every other day the last investigative journalist in America, Glenn Beck is exposing one more Marxist in President Obama’s inner circle.  That big lovable fuzz-ball Rush Limbaugh is judged a racist based on manufactured quotes and lies repeated by the President’s trained peacock and the rest of the establishment media while America watches accusations of racism used to squash any criticism of Barack H*@%$*n Obama.  Freedom of speech dissolves as we learn it’s profiling for some to mention the man’s middle name while at the same time school children are taught to memorize songs using his middle name extolling his Nobel sized accomplishments mmm mmm mmm.

Is This the News or a Comedy Tour?

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

thenewsBy Dr. ROBERT OWENS

Everyone routinely called them the Mainstream Media.  Rush now calls them the State Controlled Media.  I’ve called them the Mainstream Media, the Poodle Press, and the Lap-Dog Media.  Whatever you’ve called them, the time’s come to call them irrelevant.  Out with the old and in with the new.

When news organizations consistently slant their coverage and ignore major stories because they don’t fit their template or further their agenda, it’s time to re-evaluate what they are.  They portray themselves as objective yet everyone can see they’re partisan publicists for a particular party and a particular radical left-wing of that party.  Study after study shows the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media are perceived by the public as advocates whose left-wing agenda is self-serving and deceptive.  Instead of the fourth branch of government, honest brokers working to keep the public informed, they’ve degenerated into craven corporate cheerleaders for Progressivism.

Ever since Walter Cronkite denounced America’s commitment in Vietnam the corporate media have championed increasingly radical left-wing causes.  They first joined the Democrat Party in all but name.  Then they joined the extreme liberal wing of that Party.  Now they’ve joined the Cavalcade of Czars in the statist campaign to re-make America.

Follow the Leaders: Rush, Glenn and Sarah

Sunday, September 6th, 2009

reagan5By Dr. ROBERT OWENS

As usual it was Rush Limbaugh leading the way.  He was the first political commentator with enough insight and courage to say what so many others were thinking, “I hope he fails.”  If you listen to his program you know that this was immediately and repeatedly expanded to explain that he was referring to the President’s policies.   He even clarified it further by saying, “Hey, I support the president.  I just don’t support his policies.”  He even went so far as to entitle the transcript that refers to these statements, “We Want the President’s Policies to Fail So Everyone Can Succeed.”  Some may still find this shocking; why would anyone hope a brand new president’s policies fail?  The original quote comes from an editorial Rush wrote on the Friday before the inauguration in which he said, “Folks, I do not want what Obama is doing to work.  I don’t want more socialism in America, I don’t want more liberalism.  Liberalism is what’s gotten us to the problems we have now.  Why would I want more of it?  I do not want him to succeed.”  That was way back in January when polls showed that 70% of the American public wanted the new president to succeed.  When many Republican officials eagerly lined up for a few moments of face time to parrot, “I want the president to succeed.”  They were saying the popular thing.  Rush had the courage to swim against the tide and proclaim, “I hope he fails.”
