Happy 25th to Rush Limbaugh, Greatest Conservative Since Reagan

Thursday marked Rush Limbaugh’s 25th anniversary on the air. To label Limbaugh a radio talk show host dramatically underestimates his impact on the political debate, media, and American culture. Limbaugh is truly a transformative figure. When Limbaugh entered the world of talk radio, the AM dial was essentially moribund. He turned it into a weapon for conservatism, and in the process, led the revolution that has ended in the disintegration of the old media monopoly. Limbaugh can rightly be said to be the greatest populist expositor of conservatism in America since Reagan, and the link between the Reagan generation and the so-called Rush Babies.

WH: Not Obama's Job to Comment on Weiner, Filner

On Wednesday, White House press secretary Jay Carney explained that President Obama had not commented on the sex scandals involving San Diego Mayor Bob Filner or New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner because “his job is not to comment on those issues, but to focus on what he can do to get this economy growing faster and creating more jobs.” Jul 31, 2013 2:09 PM PT

Obama: Keystone XL Won't Create Jobs, Will Raise Gas Prices

In a New York Times interview published Saturday, President Obama came out foursquare against the Keystone XL pipeline, claiming that it would not create jobs. “Republicans have said that this would be a big jobs generator,” Obama said. “There is no evidence that that’s true.” He then blamed Canada for not “doing more” to prevent carbon emissions from oil sands. Obama continued, “I meant what I said; I'm going to evaluate this based on whether or not this is going to significantly contribute to carbon in our atmosphere. And there is no doubt that Canada at the source in those tar sands could potentially be doing more to mitigate carbon release.” Jul 28, 2013 8:22 AM PT

The Lies Never Stopped: The SEXTcapades of the 'Next Mayor of NYC'

As the swirl of events surrounding former disgraced Congressman and current New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner reaches epic proportions, new details are emerging about Weiner’s ambitions and his sexting of young women. Weiner was likely considering a mayoral run as early as March 2011, before he had even resigned from Congress; he likely lied in his recent press conference in which he stated that his sexting had stopped during the summer of 2012; and it is now obvious that Weiner fibbed repeatedly to the press about cleaning up his act between his resignation and his admissions of continued misbehavior this week.

On Thursday, Mother Jones broke the massive scoop that Breitbart News participates in both journalism and conservative activism, reporting that reporters from this publication attended a conservative coalition meeting dubbed Groundswell. This stunning revelation was supported by the late Andrew Breitbart, who noted in his book, Righteous Indignation, that the goal of his site was “to knock down the false edifice that is mainstream media, that is built upon the false proposition of 'objective' journalism and the grotesque anti-American proposition of political correctness.” Jul 25, 2013 7:46 PM PT
