Sign The ‘Stand Strong For Rush’ Petition

Democrats in Congress have worked themselves into a tizzy because Rush Limbaugh recently stated that he wants Obama to fail. That may have been inartfully put, but the fact of the matter is,  many Americans agree with Rush, because they believe that Obama’s policies will be bad for America.

Democrats  have called Rush’s words, “outrageous”, and have distorted them on the DCCC website:

“Last week, Rush Limbaugh actually said that he “hopes” President Obama fails to meet America’s challenges”.

They’ve started a petition to condemn Rush which they no doubt hope will be the impetus to to implement a “Hush Rush” type of Fairness Doctrine bill some time down the road.

Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters, says:

The war for freedom of speech has officially begun, America.

Be afraid! Be very afraid!

Rush responded:

“I am greatly puzzled. Why would the Democrats petition against me if I am doing such terrible damage to the GOP? Click here to send messages of love, hope and change TO ME via this petition!”

The Rush Limbaugh Show website has linked to the DCCC website and Rush has asked his listeners to tell the DCCC to stop distorting his words. Frankly, I don’t trust the DCCC to keep a record of the “reverse petition” comments.

That’s why I started this petition, which I encourage all supporters of free speech to sign. I will forward the results to  Congress to counteract their “Hush Rush” efforts.

Ahmadinejad: Obama Should Apologize For US ‘Crimes’

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad appears to be testing our new President:

The hardline leader also called on Washington to withdraw its troops from across the world as a proof of Mr Obama’s commitment to change.

“You were standing against the Iranian people in the past 60 years,” Mr Ahmadinejad said during an address in the western region of Khermenshah that was broadcast by state television.

“Those who speak of change must apologise to the Iranian people and try to repair their past bad acts and the crimes they committed against Iran.”

As to the troops, he said he expected two kinds of “deep and fundamental” change.

“Meet people, talk to them with respect and put an end to the expansionist policies. If you talk about change it must put an end to the US military presence in the world, withdraw your troops and take them back inside your borders.”

Mr Ahmadinejad said the advocates of change must “stop supporting the Zionists, outlaws and criminals”.

He called on the United States to “stop interfering in other people’s affairs”.

Perhaps Mahmoud senses weakness… Obama has promised to meet with him, a brutal tyrant, without preconditions. And Obama stated in his interview with al-Arabiya that he would “start by listening, because all too often the United States starts by dictating,” and he called for a new partnership in the Muslim world “based on mutual respect and mutual interest.”

Whether he meant to or not, he implied an apology was in order when he stated that the U.S. had made mistakes in the past but “that the same respect and partnership that America had with the Muslim world as recently as 20 or 30 years ago, there’s no reason why we can’t restore that.”

Meanwhile, Obama has quietly made missile defense concessions to Russia. How do we know? McKittrick, of Closing Velocity, an executive at the Missile Defense Agency, read about it in the paper:

Russia has dropped plans to install missiles near Poland after the Obama administration signalled a change in US attitude to the region, a Moscow military official has reportedly said.

The official suggested that Mr Obama’s White House had made clear it would not prioritise executing the Bush administration’s plan to install a missile defence shield in Poland and the Czech Republic.

Peace through strength concessions. Hey, it’s always worked, before, right?

I’m so glad the world loves us, now.

Correction:

McKitterick informs me that he’s an exec with a co. that works for the MDA, not with the MDA itself.

UPDATE:

Peace, love, and unicorns Obama is staying true to his word:

Officials of Barack Obama‘s administration have drafted a letter to Iran from the president aimed at unfreezing US-Iranian relations and opening the way for face-to-face talks, the Guardian has learned.

The US state department has been working on drafts of the letter since Obama was elected on 4 November last year. It is in reply to a lengthy letter of congratulations sent by the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, on 6 November.

Diplomats said Obama’s letter would be a symbolic gesture to mark a change in tone from the hostile one adopted by the Bush administration, which portrayed Iran as part of an “axis of evil”.

It would be intended to allay the ­suspicions of Iran’s leaders and pave the way for Obama to engage them directly, a break with past policy.


Obama Has An Egg Of Power In The Oval Office

Do unicorns lay eggs? They must:

eggofpowerHere’s what Michelle Malkin found out about this stunning work of craftsmanship:

The wooden sculpture that Barack Obama has brought into the Oval Office combines African tribal tradition with a poignant message. Obtained on a 2006 visit to his ancestral Kenya, the “Egg of Power” symbolizes the fragility of chiefly power: According to an ancient proverb, power is like an egg; if it’s held too tightly, it breaks, and if it’s held too loosely, it will slip from grasp.

Hmmm…He obtained “the egg of power” back in 2006.  Hubris?

It’s a good thing the egg of power is made of wood, because if Obama, and the rest of the Dems go after talk radio, the way they’re signaling they will, a non-symbolic egg of power would make a big, huge mess in the oval office, and we can’t have that.

Incidentally, in case you’re wondering…yes, of course, for a small fee, ($100.00) you can have one too.

Also seen at Michelle Malkin’s is a pocket sized “little blue book” (reminiscent of Mao’s Little Red Book) filled with Obama’s most inspiring quotes on sale for a mere $49.50.

Printed in a size that easily fits into pocket or purse, this book is an anthology of quotations borrowed from Barack Obama’s speeches and writings. POCKET OBAMA serves as a reminder of the amazing power of oratory and the remarkable ability of this man to move people with his words. His superb and captivating oratory style has earned comparisons to John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, and this historic collection presents words that catapulted his remarkable rise to the American Presidency. It is an unofficial requirement for every citizen to own, to read, and to carry this book at all times.

That last bit, I *think* is a joke…

Obama Won’t Compromise on “Tax Cuts”

Bad news.

Obama may have had the family planning pork removed from the stimulus bill, but he’s adamant that the welfare spending is non-negotiable. The “tax cuts” in dispute are being described by Republicans as “welfare through the tax code”.

In the meeting, Obama acknowledged a fundamental divide between Republicans and Democrats on the issue of a tax rebates for people at the lowest income level – Republicans complain that tax cuts for people who don’t pay income taxes amounts to “welfare through the tax code.”

House Republicans pelted Obama for more than 30 minutes with questions about deficits, taxes and spending, according to sources inside the private meeting. Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas), won applause from his GOP colleagues when he asked the president whether he would promise that the stimulus would not be an excuse to raise taxes or increase spending. Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.), asked Obama for common ground on taxes in the $825 billion package – and was rejected.

This is the redistribution that was promised. We can’t say we weren’t warned.

Sec. of State Hillary Clinton Sounding Surprisingly Hawkish

I like what I’m hearing:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday that Israel had a right to defend itself and that Palestinian rocket attacks from Gaza on the Jewish state could not go unanswered.

Clinton spoke as a fragile ceasefire ruptured between Israel and Hamas-ruled Gaza on the same day as President Barack Obama‘s special envoy George Mitchell arrived in the region to try and shore up the truce.

“We support Israel’s right to self-defense. The (Palestinian) rocket barrages which are getting closer and closer to populated areas (in Israel) cannot go unanswered,” Clinton said in her first news conference at the State Department.

The top U.S. diplomat, whose comments may be seen by some as giving Israel a green light to once again pound Gaza, accused Hamas of “offensive” action against the Israeli Defense Forces on the border.

“It is regrettable that the Hamas leadership apparently believes that it is in their interest to provoke the right of self-defense instead of building a better future for the people of Gaza,” said Clinton.

She’s sounding tougher than Condoleezza Rice, in fact, who through the years often called for “Israeli restraint”, and when the latest hostilities erupted, called for an immediate ceasefire. When the Ceasefire Resolution was brought to a vote at the UN Security Council, she abstained, explaining that,  “Washington agreed with the text and goals of the resolution but added: “The United States thought it important to see the outcomes of the Egyptian mediation efforts in order to see what this resolution might have been supporting.”

Support The Obama-Limbaugh Bipartisan Stimulus Plan

el-rushbo

This sounds good to me…if only there was a chance of Obama adopting the plan:

This does not have to be a divisive issue. It does not have to be in any way, shape, manner, or form a divisive issue.  So I have a proposal.  As has been noted, elections have consequences. President Obama in the meeting on Friday with House and Senate Republican leaders, Eric Cantor from Virginia in the House proposed a moderate tax cut plan. Obama said, Well, you know, “I won.” I’m going to trump you on that.  We’re not going to do that. Well, where’s the bipartisanship, President Obama?  There is no bipartisanship in President Obama’s plan.  President Obama’s definition of bipartisanship is when Republicans cave and agree with his plan so he can then claim it’s bipartisan.  But he’s not compromising on anything, here.

Mine is a genuine compromise.  So let’s look at how the vote came out, shall we?  Fifty-three percent of voters in this country — we’ll say, for the sake of this proposal, 53% of Americans — voted for Obama.  Forty-six percent voted for Senator McCain, and 1% voted for wackos.  Let’s give the remaining 1% to President Obama, so let’s say that 54% voted for President Obama and 46% voted for Senator McCain.  As a way to bring the country together and at the same time determine the most effective way to deal with recessions, under the Obama-Limbaugh Stimulus Plan of 2009, $540 billion of the one trillion will be spent on infrastructure as defined by President Obama and the Democrats.

So the Obama voters get to have the public works jobs, and funding for  abortions, ACORN, and crappy cars.

The remaining $460 billion, or 46% that voted for Senator McCain, will be directed towards tax cuts, as determined by me.

These tax cuts will consist primarily of capital gains tax cuts and corporate tax rate cuts.  So Obama gets $540 billion to spend his way.  The other people of this country who did not vote for his way get $460 billion spent the way they would like it spent.  This is bipartisanship! This is how bipartisanship really works.  Okay, Obama wins by a 54-46 majority, so he gets 54% of the trillion bucks.  Spend it his way.  We get 46% of the trillion bucks to spend our way, and then we compare. Then we see which stimulus actually works and works the fastest, and I will guarantee you that if this plan is adopted, just the announcement that $460 billion will go toward paying for tax cuts, capital gains, and corporate tax rates — we could throw in some personal income tax rate reduction in order to make sure that the voters don’t think it’s all about helping the big guys.  But we need jobs, do we not?

Who hires people?  Businesses!  Businesses need tax cuts.  The US corporate tax rate is obscene.  It is the highest of all industrialized nations.  It’s 35%.  Cut it.  Cut it in half.  Make the capital gains rate go away for three months, and then get out of the way to see what happens on Wall Street.  And once Wall Street starts ticking up 500 points a day, you watch what happens to the rest of the private sector.  It will follow right along.  This would ensure a bipartisan compromise bill, as Democrats have said that they’re always about. It would satisfy the American people’s wishes, as polls currently note; and it would also serve as a test, going forward, as to which approach best stimulates the growth of jobs — and it can be measured side by side.  It could be determined where the new jobs are coming from.

Of course, this plan would defeat the Democrats’ purpose…which isn’t to stimulate the economy at all, but to consolidate power.

Rush, who has received a lot of heat, even from some conservatives for saying that he doesn’t want Obama to succeed, just asked a brilliant exit question: Does Obama want conservatives to succeed?
