The Big Three on the Right: Palin, Limbaugh and Beck

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | In case you're from Normal, Illinois, a place I've been banned from for obvious reasons, you'll notice that all three of the above are conservative, two of them paid by Fox News. One is a potential presidential candidate turned political commentator and the others run their own media shows on radio and TV.

The Obama Administration and MSM hate these people and have called for their removal, boycotting Beck's sponsors in the process.

Boring, depressing and wrong
is no way to run a country

I chose not to pick any Dems today because they pride themselves on their lockstep approach to nonsensical Marxist policies, racial politics and class warfare. The past is not on the left's side.

History is replete with the failures of the Roman Empire, Marx/Lenin/Stalin, Mao, FDR, Fidel, Germany and Italy in the 20's and 30's. Hugo Chavez is failing as I write this.

Obama is hypnotized by his father's rebellion against the British colonialists who occupied his native Kenya. The problem is Obama's dad's combination of Socialism and anti-colonialism of the 50's and 60's hasn't worked. Africa is almost a dead continent.

In The Roots of Obama's Rage by Dinesh D'Souza, based on Obama's book, Dreams From My Father, D'Souza concludes that the USA is being run by the ghost of a Luo Kenyan tribesman, Obama Senior. Dems have been enthusiastically running with Obama's agenda, sending this country into an economic tailspin unlike any we've seen since the Depression. Examples:

  • Obama recently announced a seven year extension to his ban on offshore drilling, widening it to include the Eastern Gulf and Florida. This represents a reversal of another Obama promise, surprise, surprise, a devastating attack on those in the energy business and a step up for China, Mexico, South America and others who will fill the void our President has created.

  • Nancy Pelosi's leading the Dem choir that the way to stimulate the economy is to get more people on welfare and food stamps. By that logic, we should ALL quit our job so we make our contribution to the recovery. It's like fighting cancer by taking up smoking.

  • Both lack the ability to recognize the extent of the "shellacking" and the clear message not to raise any taxes at the worst time for our economy since the Depression.

Here's my take on the top three conservatives:

  • Sarah Palin: Palin, a lot like Reagan, only female and bludgeoned by both sides because of it, brings out the loons on the left like no other. She's the only Vice Presidential candidate to be attacked after she lost. Her exposure on Fox, two bestsellers, social networking, her daughter Bristol reaching the finals of DWTS and Sarah's TLC TV show Sarah Palin's Alaska have kept her newsworthy. I'm 95% sure she's running for president. Unless Obama moves well to the right, I don't see her or any of the other Republican losing to him. His time has come and gone.

  • Rush Limbaugh: Limbaugh is a genius at paper-cutting the left. Then he pours lemon juice on the wounds and relishes the raging reactions. He has too much fun and it conveys well to his listeners. Rush is brilliant at interpreting Lib motives. A Palin and Beck fan, Limbaugh has gained popularity under all governments and circumstances and has been on the air over 20 years. He's often called the leader of the Republican Party by the left. He barely denies it.

  • Glenn Beck: Beck is a 30-year overnight media sensation. He's had his ups and downs, both health (he admits to being an alcoholic) and personal. Totally dissed and misused by CNN, he's skyrocketed to super-stardom since appearing on his Fox TV show. Fox boss, Roger Ailes provides a nice cuddly spot for Glenn and he has blossomed. He tours with O'Reilly and plays nice with the other Fox stars. He's written about a zillion best-sellers. Every book, much written by his staff ala John Stewart, is guaranteed a run at numero uno. Beck is the most hated of all. He's broken more revealing stories about Obama and his Marxist czars than all the media put together. George Soros (AKA Schwartz), has been revealed as a manipulating, anti-American monster with uber influence on Obama. Beck revealed that Obama and Soros have one other thing in common: They both think they're G-d.

Ideas are king, their sources commoners

As a businessman, writer and radio talk show host, I don't just glance at the opinions of my callers, letter writers and bloggers, I cherish them. I answer as many as I can. That gives me the time and freedom to answer most critiques, often adding to my knowledge and pushing me to do more intense research.

Unlike other times, more people are engaged. Their opinions are all over the place, mainly because of technology.

I've given you my opinion --- how about yours?

After all, there are no unsolvable problems, only well hidden answers.
