Limbaugh: ‘Perfect ticket’ for 2016 is Clinton-Bush

PALM BEACH, Florida – In the wake of Jeb Bush’s announcement that he’s actively exploring a run for president, radio host Rush Limbaugh revealed what he calls the “perfect ticket” to win the White House in 2016.

“The ideal, the perfect ticket for the 2016 election: Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush,” said Limbaugh sarcastically on his top-rated broadcast Wednesday. “Now they can figure out who’s on top of the ticket on their own.”

Wave Elections: What They Mean

From IMPRIMIS, December Issue, by Dr. Larry P. Arnn, (President, Hillsdale College)

imprimisThe following is adapted from a speech delivered on December 5, 2014, at Hillsdale College’s Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship in Washington, D.C.

***

We have had a wave election. For those of a conservative disposition, it is a satisfying wave. According to Michael Barone, speaking recently here at Hillsdale’s Kirby Center, this wave is like several recent wave elections in its magnitude and decisiveness. There was a wave in favor of the Republicans in 1980 and again in 1994. There was a wave in favor of the Democrats in 2006 and again in 2008. There was a wave for the Republicans in 2010. There was a stalemate in 2012. Now there is a Republican wave in 2014. Looked at one way, these waves appear more like tides, ebbing and flowing.

Commishes amp up audio, add visual for meetings

Thanks to County Judge Mark Riley for taking steps to expand the court’s capability and accessibility by enabling residents to watch court proceedings on the county website… another huge step toward total transparency in county government.

Citizens will also benefit from ‘sound proofing’ the courtroom in order to keep outside noise at a minimum.

________________________ County Courthouse

From the Weatherford Democrat, by Judy L Sheridan, 12/10/14 -

The audiovisual system for the commissioners’ courtroom in Parker County’s historic courthouse should undergo some big improvements soon due to the court’s approval of $102,460 in upgrades Monday.

Commissioners have sealed a deal with Communication Concepts, a Fort Worth-based company, to tackle problems with sound volume and intelligibility and expand capability, allowing residents to watch court proceedings on the county website, for example.

Included are a new recording system, tablet-like laptops for commissioners, a brightly lit LED display screen, a high-resolution document camera at the podium as well as a camera in the back of the room, acoustic panels, plug-ins for the media and an assisted listening system for the hearing impaired.

History Suggests Social Security Insolvency Is Coming Sooner Than Projected

From The Heritage Foundation, By , 12/10/14 -

social security-1This year’s Social Security trustees report was released with little fanfare, as the projected date of Social Security’s financial insolvency held steady at 2033.[1] Many analysts and lawmakers have pointed to 20 years of alleged solvency as an excuse to delay meaningful Social Security reform. However, if history is any guide to future solvency, the Social Security program could become insolvent much sooner than 2033.

THE IMMIGRANT CRACKDOWN

From BuzzFeed News, by 12/07/14 -

After the U.S. border crisis this summer, the Mexican government implemented a new plan at its southern border. “We are filling up the southeast with tons of people, crime, corrupt authorities. This will explode.”

TENOSIQUE, Mexico — For migrants at the Casa de Migrante, there’s not much to do but wait.

Men and women lean against the chapel wall, trying to stay in the shade it provides. A group of younger immigrants plays a pickup game of soccer. More still nap in the doorways of the shelter’s dormitories.

Once a pit stop on the long, dangerous trail north to the U.S. border, Tenosique has become ground zero for a remarkably successful push to cut off the flow of undocumented immigrants into the United States.

Centralized control devastated Europe, now it threatens U.S.

The Brussels elites often have trouble grasping that there’s a world beyond the European Union. Ever since the Lehman Brothers collapse six years ago, they’ve been talking about a “world recession.” Hmmm: World recession? Are Indian rickshaw drivers standing idle, Japanese pearl divers sighing with boredom, Mexican drug lords loafing about waiting for someone to behead? No. The rest of the world has shaken off the credit crunch bug. Only the EU appears to have picked up a chronic condition.

Last year, according to the International Monetary Fund, the United States grew at 2.8 percent, Latin America by 2.9 percent, India by 4.7 percent, the Middle East by 4.9 percent, Africa by 5.1 percent and China by 7.7 percent. But the Eurozone shrank by 0.4 percent. I say “Eurozone,” not “Europe,” because the countries that kept their currencies — Britain, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, Poland — grew healthily enough.

Note: This article is from 2008 but is still relevant -

From ToThePointNews.com, by Dr. Jack Wheler, 06/05/08 -

The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.

OBAMA’S LEGACY OF LOOTERS

From To The Point, by Jack Kelly, 12/03/14 -

Ferguson Looter

Ferguson Looter

A black man, Jermaine Jones, 29, was gunned down in the street on the outskirts of Ferguson, Missouri Oct. 18, a few hours after his sister, Margaree Dixson, 35, had been shot half a mile away.

If this is the first you’ve heard about these murders, it’s because their killers also were black.

To most in the news media, “black deaths matter only if the killer is a white cop,” said Italian journalist Enza Ferrerri.

Which doesn’t happen very often. Of 1,265 people killed in St. Louis between 2003 and 2012, 1,138 (89.9%) were black, according to University of Missouri-St. Louis criminologist David Klinger, a former police officer.

City reviews employee election conduct

Jerry Blaisdell City Manager

City Manager

We sincerely appreciate and admire Weatherford City Manager Jerry Blaisdell’s distinguished career in law enforcement; first as a Police Officer in Fort Worth and as Weatherford’s Chief of Police.

With Blaisdell’s reputation as a Peace Officer, I think it is highly unlikely that if he witnessed a crime, or had knowledge that an offense had been committed, that Blaisdell would walk away without taking the appropriate action.

That is why I am confident Mr. Blaisdell will follow the appropriate protocol regarding the alleged offences cited in Christin Coyne’s article below.

This incident has attracted the attention of the Texas Ethics Commission and others.
