Rush Limbaugh Goes There … “If I had a Father He would Look like ‘Shorty’ Delbert Belton. If I had a Son he would Look Like Chris Lane”
On Friday Rush Limbaugh said what many have been thinking, … “If I had a father, he would look like “Shorty” Delbert Belton, and, if I had a son, he’d look like Chris Lane.” And there is literally no outrage by the two senseless murders of 89 year old Shorty” Delbert Belton or Aussie baseball player Chris Lane by Barack Obama. No mention, no calls, no nothing. But the liberal MSM was all a flutter over a rodeo clown wearing an Obama mask. There was outrage over the shooting death of Trayvon Martin at the hands of a “white” Hispanic, George Zimmerman. However, Chicago is a killing filed of black on black crime, Chris Lane was killed by three thug, bored teens and ‘Shorty’ was beaten to death by two black teens. Where is the equivalent moral outrage?
A full transcript can be found at Rush Limbaugh’s website.
“You know, if I had a father, he would look like “Shorty” Delbert Belton, and, if I had a son, he’d look like Chris Lane. Nobody’s gonna say that. Obama has not called the parents of Chris Lane. I don’t know if Obama has called anybody related to “Shorty” Delbert Belton, but these two were people killed by bored, thug-wannabe African-Americans. There still has been more outrage over a rodeo clown wearing an Obama mask than either of these two events combined. It’s this kind of thing — this cultural rot, this decay — that you can’t even address without being called a racist”
Conservative talk radio host fires Cumulus.
As reported by Inside Music Media, after months of bitter negotiations, Sean Hannity, the #2 rated radio host, has rejected an offer to extend his contract. In essence, Hannity beat Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey to the punch and gave his a taste of his own medicine. Hannity fired Cumulus. It is also being reported that sources close to Hannity feels Cumulus treats its employees “like dirt…sub-human.” Rumors have it that Michael Savage will replace Hannity for afternoon drive time. Pardon the laughter, oh yea, that’s going to work. This is only half of the story. The liberals foaming at the mouth that Hannity, and Rush, were going to be silenced could not be more wrong.
Johnny Paycheck – ‘Take this Job and Shove It’
In the end as the Daily Caller reports, Hannity told Cumulus to ‘Take this Job and Shove It’.
But as NewsBusters reports, that Michael Savage could replace Hannity. More importantly they are reporting that the LIBS have got the entire Hannity being fired from radio 100% wrong. Sean Hannity is not going to be silenced from the radio waves. BOT EVEN CLOSE. According to Del Colliano, Clear Channel is “100% behind Hannity and will replace 80% of the Cumulus stations as soon as the current deal is up.”
Sean Hannity, the popular conservative radio and TV talk show host, turns down a recent Cumulus offer to renew his contract to continue aitring [sic] his show on 40 of their stations.
And now Lew “Trickey” Dickey has apparently seized the low road again.
He allowed Michael “I hope you get AIDS and die, you pig” Savage to go on Cumulus stations and predict that he – the 71-year-old talker – will replace Hannity in afternoon drive. [...]
Sources close to the situation who wish to remain anonymous in my witness protection program say it’s the other way around.
I have known for weeks that the opposite is true.
More from NewsBusters on the Libs getting it wrong again. SM had stated earlier as negotiations were going on between Rush and Hannity with Cumulus that LIBS best be careful. don’t ask fro things they might just come true. Sorry LIBS, this is not the worst thing that could happen to Hannity … it was the best thing for the #2
Just how wrong were liberal media members on this?
According to Del Colliano, Clear Channel is “100% behind Hannity and will replace 80% of the Cumulus stations as soon as the current deal is up.”
This will allow Hannity to stay on 500-plus stations carried through Premiere.
For the record, sources close to Hannity told me Friday that Del Colliano’s gotten it 100 percent correct. Another prominent, independent source also confirmed this moments ago.
This also squares nicely with what Alan Colmes predicted back in July.
Much more interesting thoughts as to what is the driving force behind this breakup at The American Spectator.
Daily Commentary – Wednesday, July 31, 2013 – Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity Being Dropped by Cumulus Media
- But they aren’t disappearing from radio, they will likely move to WOR
Could This Really Be True … Is Cumulus Media Planning on Dumping Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity? However, It May Not Be a Bad Thing
Could this really be good for business? A note to the LEFT, I wouldn’t get too giddy …
The Politico is reporting that Cumulus Media is planning on dropping both top conservative radio talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity from its stations. Yea that’s the ticket, lose your two biggest talents and think that you can go forward without a gaping hole in your earnings or listener-ship. According to the reports, some industry sources said that Cumulus is also expected to move some of its existing talent, which includes Mike Huckabee, Mark Levin, and Michael Savage into one of the slots. With all due respect to these folks, especially Mark Levin, they are not el Rushbo or Hannity, nor do they garner the audience that these two individuals have. Rush and Hannity are by far the two biggest radio draws, its not even close.
In a major shakeup for the radio industry, Cumulus Media, the second-biggest broadcaster in the country, is planning to drop both Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity from its stations at the end of the year, an industry source told POLITICO on Sunday.
Cumulus has decided that it will not renew its contracts with either host, the source said, a move that would remove the two most highly rated conservative talk personalities from more than 40 Cumulus channels in major markets.
The decision comes after negotiations between Cumulus and Premiere Networks, the division of Clear Channel that distributes Limbaugh and Hannity’s shows, broke down due to disagreements over the cost of the distribution rights, the source said. Cumulus is known to drive a hard bargain on costs, and Clear Channel is known to seek top dollar for big names.
Over at Twichy, they show that Media Matters, Eric Boehlert pretty excited about it. The comical and ironic aspect of his tweets is when he refers to Rush as “hate” programming. Really, Media Matters accusing others of “hate” marketing is like the Obamacare call centers put in place to answer questions and add people to Obamacare working part time and not able to be eligible for insurance.
The Top Talk Radio Audiences from Talkers.com
A note to the LEFT, don’t get too giddy and don’t ask for things they might just come true. Read the article at ‘The Week’ that makes the most sense regarding the potential parting of the ways of Rush and Hannity from Cumulus. The article asks, Who’s dumping Who? Here are the facts and if Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh both leave Cumulus, they will be replaced with more conservative talk radio host. This opens up a potential of more local talent or other B name hosts. It is not like Cumulus is going to replace the #1 and #2 radio audience talk show hosts with elevator music or NPR. Thus, it will add more conservative talent to the air waves. Then, it is not like Rush and Sean are not going to find new homes on the radio and their legions of fans are just going to change their preset radio button to a new station. Those that listen on line will just add a new app. So in the long run, the LEFT who think this is a bad thing, may rue the day that this shake up happens because it just will provide even more conservative talent on the air waves. Oh the horror.
That’s an important distinction, says Hinckley. And if Limbaugh goes to Clear Channel, it’s not like he’ll be off the airwaves. His legions of fans would just have to change the presets on their radios.
And Cumulus wouldn’t drop conservative talk radio altogether — it would just switch personalities, says Byers. In recent weeks, “Cumulus has been quietly reaching out to radio talent agents and political insiders about new local and regional station hosts to fill some of the airtime that will be left vacant by Limbaugh and Hannity,” he says. “Cumulus is also expected to move some of its existing talent — which includes Mike Huckabee, Mark Levin, and Michael Savage — into one of the slots.”
“Cumulus has already tried to position Huckabee as a ‘safe’ alternative to Limbaugh,” says Adam Martin at New York: “A conservative commentator who wouldn’t call people ‘sluts’ on air.” Huckabee doesn’t have a huge following, according to Talkers magazine’s most recent analysis, but Savage and Levin do.
Bill O’Reilly Goes Mental on Laura Ingraham in “Thump the Bible” Gay Marriage Controversy … O’Reilly Get’s Defensive & Stops Discussion Within Seconds
Who here has grown tired of Bill O’Reilly?
Bill O’Reilly and Laura Ingraham went at it last night on ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ over the “Thump the Bible” controversy. Of course the debate occurred when O’Reilly actually allowed her to speak and was not acting defensively and like a boorish fool. As stated by the Gateway Pundit, the fire works started almost immediately.
Keep it up O’Reilly and this is how you will lose your audience. After watching the below segment, I am not sure what the difference between O’Reilly and a liberal, blowhard from the MSM who refuses to allow a guest with an opposing point of view? How can anyone expect an honest debate and discussion of an issue if 5 seconds into the debate, you shut down the words?
Bill O’Reilly tonight responded to criticisms from the right over his commentary last week that gay marriage opponents need to do more than just “thump the Bible” if they want to win the argument. After a Talking Points Memo largely focused on mocking liberal media attempts to gin up a feud between himself and Rush Limbaugh, O’Reilly brought on Laura Ingraham, who actually told O’Reilly he was wrong in saying what he said. O’Reilly was stunned with Ingraham, shouting over her and telling her “I’m disappointed in you.”
Ingraham first surprised O’Reilly by agreeing that there actually is a feud of sorts going on between him and people like Limbaugh, given Limbaugh’s harsh condemnation of O’Reilly’s commentary. O’Reilly dismissed the idea he and Limbaugh are enemies, saying “I don’t care what he says, he can say whatever he wants.
A note to Bill O’Reilly and I say this will all du respect because O’Reilly did great work with Megan’s Law; however, The LEFT fear Rush Limbaugh, not you. They fear Rush because he actually stands for something. You are a legend in your own mind.
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh told his audience: “For the First Time in My Life I Am Ashamed of My Country”. Limbaugh went on to say that he is tired of the same old politics of fear and the sky is falling fear tactics. Its the same stuff, the same threats, blame and arguments. All we do is just continue to spend more and more and no one wants to talk about the real issue … WE cannot afford to spend any more.
Here’s Rush Limbaugh comments from today’s show:
“Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country. To be watching all of this, to be treated like this, to have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it’s being insulted? It just makes me ashamed.
“Seriously man, here we get worked up over 44 billion dollars – that’s the total amount of money that will not be spent that was scheduled to be spent this year.”
Limbaugh added that the government would continue to spend more money this year than last year in spite of the sequester cuts.
“I’ve said the same things over and over for 25 years,” Limbaugh said, adding that it didn’t matter who was in power. “It’s the same stuff, it’s the same threats, it’s the same arguments, over and over nothing ever changes.”
“We just keep spending more money, we create more dependency, we get more and more irresponsible one crisis to the next, all of them manufactured,” Limbaugh added. “Except for the real crisis that nobody ever addresses
and that is we can’t afford it.”
Rush Limbaugh’s complete comments can be seen and read HERE.
You are not the only one who is ashamed Rush; however, I beat you to the punch … I was ashamed when America reelected this class warfare, community agitator President to a second term.
President Barack Obama and Democrat House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi believe that Washington DC does not have spending problem. However, it is obvious to a majority of Americans that Washington has a severe spending problem.
President Obama Scolds FOX News for Not Giving Him A Media Pass Like the Rest of the MSM … Trying to Silence Those Who Dare Question Him
THE IMPERIAL PRESIDENT WHO THINKS ALL MUST AGREE WITH HIM OR ELSE …
America, want to know why “We the People” have a First Amendment and there is “Freedom of the Press”? Our Founding Fathers provided us with these liberties to prevent exactly what Barack Obama is attempting to do in bullying the media not to question his policies and agenda. Greta Van Susteren references this very notion as she stated, ”apparently President Obama wants his usual media pass and Fox challenges his policies – which happens to be the media’s job.” Believe it or not America, it is American to question your leaders.
The ultimate bully
This was in response to President Barack Obama’s interview with The New Republic where he called out FOX News and Rush Limbaugh for being the problem with the dysfunction in Washington, DC and the gridlock due to GOP obstruction. Obama claimed that it if FOX News would not punish and bully Republicans when they do compromise, that things would be different. Does some one need to inform Obama that it is the media’s role to always question our government, not agree with them? But for Obama, the Imperial president, who seems more comfortable acting as a dictator than he does working under the confines of the US Constitution and our Republic.
President Obama in response to a question about working with Republicans: “One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates. If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it. I think John Boehner genuinely wanted to get a deal done, but it was hard to do in part because his caucus is more conservative probably than most Republican leaders are, and partly because he is vulnerable to attack for compromising Republican principles and working with Obama.
The same dynamic happens on the Democratic side. I think the difference is just that the more left-leaning media outlets recognize that compromise is not a dirty word. And I think at least leaders like myself—and I include Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in this—are willing to buck the more absolutist-wing elements in our party to try to get stuff done.
Greta Van Susteren went on to call out Obama and Democrats for the bullies that they really are. Which plays into the age old adage that we have known all along that if you are accusing some one else of doing something, you yourself are probably the guilty one. Who does not believe that Democrat leadership pressure and intimidate their members not to go on Fox News and if they do are provided pro-Obama talking points?
And do you know what else? Brace yourself for this one! Some Democrats have told me that they want to come on Fox to discuss issues but they get heat from their Leadership for appearing on Fox. Does President Obama know that? So which Party is intimidating its members? And to say Senator Harry Reid is willing to compromise is just wrong. He has not allowed a budget to get to the Senate Floor for years to even begin a discussion. The budget process is where all compromise begins and ends and ended it before it even got started.
This is not the first time that Obama has done this. From the outset that have tried to marginalize and prevent Fox News from having the same access as the rest of the complicit, corrupt media complex. Otherwise known as the Obama propaganda machine.
Carbonite CEO David Friend AdmitsDropping Rush Limbaugh Hurt Firm’s Growth More Than Expected … Lesson Learned, Don’t Listen to the LEFT
David Friend, the CEO of Carbonite has admitted that dropping Rush Limbaugh hurt his companies growth more than expected. Really, this was a shock to him? Any first year non-liberal business school student could have predicted this. But as reported at Legal Insurrection, Carbonite’s succumbing to liberal pressure following the Sandra Fluke controversy. Just wondering David Friend, how is Carbonite (CARB) doing as compared to El Rushbo’s ratings?
Carbonite famously dropped Rush Limbaugh on a Saturday Night at the height of the Sandra Fluke controversy. Carbonite became the poster child for the Rush boycott movement organized by Media Matters, which coordinated the effort with so-called independent groups.
At the time I examined Carbonite’s SEC filings, and how Carbonite had built its business model based on high growth driven, in significant part, by the promotion of Carbonite by Limbaugh. I predicted that Carbonite had shot itself in the foot, and put political correctness before the interests of its shareholders.
Since that time the Stop Rush effort has imploded, with backstabbing and accusations among the participants. Limbaugh has had better numbers than ever, and the hype surrounding Mike Huckabee as a Limbaugh replacement has gone flat.
Yup, paybacks are a bitch. It really makes one wonder how clueless the LEFT truly is when it comes to business. Then again, should I really be surprised? Just as with Chick-Fil-A, the CEO of Carbonite was just as misguided thinking that the LEFT had the high-ground. Carbonite ignorantly crumbled to the pressure of the Left rather than actually using sound business principles. As NewsBusters stated, “Perhaps Friend would like some Chick-fil-A fries to go with his order of crow meat?”
Rush Limbaugh Says, President Barack Obama “hates this country,” They are “people with miserable, meaningless lives” and “people who don’t count.”
Rush Limbaugh says, President Barack Obama hates America. Limbaugh’s analysis come from Barack Obama’s Friday Roanoke, VA speech where Obama said, “If you’ve got a business … you didn’t build that.Somebody else made that happen.” This a a must listen to analysis from Rush as Obama’s socialist, government control socialism is becoming more and more obvious during every speech.
From The Politico: [Editors note: Too bad the libs at the Politico fabricated the actual words of Rush Limbaugh. Listen to the full audio above to what Rush really said. The meaningless, miserable people Rush was referring to was Obama and his political reelect minions.]
President Barack Obama “hates this country,” and his philosophy appeals to “people with miserable, meaningless lives” and “people who don’t count,” Rush Limbaugh said Monday.
“I think it can now be said, without equivocation — without equivocation — that this man hates this country,” the conservative radio host said. “He is trying, Barack Obama is trying, to dismantle, brick-by-brick, the American dream. There’s no other way to put this. There’s no other way to explain this.”
From Rush Limbaugh.com:
There’s no other way to put this.
There’s no other way to explain this.
He was indoctrinated as a child. His father was a communist. His mother was a leftist. He was sent to prep and Ivy League schools where his contempt for the country was reinforced. He moved to Chicago. It was the home of the radical-left movement. He hooks up to Ayers and Dohrn and Rashid Khalidi. He learns the ruthlessness of Cook County politics. This is what we have as a president: A radical ideologue, a ruthless politician who despises the country and the way it was founded and the way in which it became great.
He hates it.
And what do we get from the radicals in the White House? Obama’s top political adviser David Axelrod demands Mitt Romney denounce Rush Limbaugh for saying Obama “Hates This Country.” Isn’t this rich, coming from the people who refuse to apologize for calling Romney a felon. Hey Axelrod, go take a flying leap. In Obama in Wonderland its perfectly ok for Obama political operatives to call another a felon, even though they don;t believe one word of it, but its evil fro a private citizen to question Obama. It truly has become an “Obamaination” under this president.
Rush Limbaugh: The Court Rules of Individual Mandate … Obamacare is the Largest Tax Increase in the History of the World
Does any one honestly think that Obamacare would have passed as a tax increase? Obamacare was a stealth tax all along.
Wasn’t it Barack Obama who stated that he would not raise taxes on a family making over $250,000? Wasn’t it Barack Obama who said over and over and over again that the “individual mandate” of Obamacare was not a tax? However, if it walks like a tax and talks like a tax … it is a tax. Sadly today the US Supreme Court of the United States and mainly Chief Justice John Roberts called it a tax. That is the only reason why Obamacare passed Constitutionality.
Rush Limbaugh stated the following regarding Obama’s Barack Obama and the greatest tax increase ever perpetrated on the United States. We the American people have been deceived by Barack Obama in ways that no one could have conceived. Shame on Obama and Democrats for lying to teh American people. More so, shame on the SCOTUS and Justice John Roberts for bending over backwards to find a way to pass Obamacare. The end results, Obamacare is nothing more the the greatest tax increase in the history of the word.
RUSH: Hey, folks, have you seen the economic news today? Have you heard about the unemployment numbers today? (laughing) Gross domestic product, have you heard about any of that? Because I have it here, and it sucks. It’s a disaster. The economy of this country remains a disaster.
And we, the American people, have just been deceived in ways that nobody contemplated. And what we now have is the biggest tax increase in the history of the world. What we have been told by the chief justice of the Supreme Court and four liberals on the court: Obamacare is just a massive tax increase. That’s all it is. Obama lied to us about that. The Democrats lied. “It wasn’t a tax. There was no way it was a tax.”
The chief justice was hell-bent to find a way to make this law applicable, so he just decided, you know what, as a tax increase, it works, because there’s no limit on the federal government’s ability to tax. And it’s right there in the preamble of the Constitution, right there, Article 1, Section 8, the general welfare clause, it’s been established Congress can tax whatever, whoever, whenever, how much they want. Even when they don’t ask for it, the Supreme Court is gonna find a way to make what they want to do legal because John Roberts said it’s not our job here to forbid this. It’s not our job to protect people from outcomes. It’s not our job to determine whether it is right or wrong or any of that. We just get to look at it. We can’t forbid this. This is what the elected representatives of the people want. (more at Rush Limbaugh)
