Rush Limbaugh: What I heard about Harry Reid’s “exercise” injuries

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) recently admitted that he is now blinded in his right eye from injuries he sustained from “exercising” on New Year’s Day in his home in Henderson, a suburb of Las Vegas. Supposedly, an “elastic exercise band” snapped so violently that Reid was flung across the room and crashed into a filing cabinet, resulting in broken ribs and facial bones.

Or so we are to believe.

Harry Reid blind in one eye

Nor is this the first time Reid had been injured from “exercising.”

In May 2011 in Washington, D.C., Reid dislocated his shoulder, bumped his forehead, and sustained a contusion just below his left eye when he slipped and fell during a morning jog in the rain. Reid said he was leaning on a wet car near his home in the Ritz-Carlton hotel  when he tumbled to the ground.

Harry Reid injuries

Now, our suspicions about the real cause of Reid’s New Year’s Day injuries are confirmed: They were from a beating, not from “exercising.”

From the transcript of Rush Limbaugh’s radio show yesterday, April 15, 2015:

It’s a couple of weeks ago now, I got an e-mail from John Hinderaker at Power Line, and he said that he had been in contact with somebody in Las Vegas who claimed to know what happened to Harry Reid, and that this man wanted to tell the story to both Hinderaker and me, on the phone.  I was asked if I would join a phone call and listen to the story, and I said, “Sure, but I’m not committing to using any of it. I’m making no commitments about anything.”  Everybody understood that.

So after the program one day a couple of weeks ago I got on the phone with John Hinderaker and this caller from Las Vegas who claimed to know what happened to Dingy Harry Reid.  Hinderaker wrote the story up and published it on Power Line.  I don’t know what the date was because I didn’t print.  But it’s just a couple, three weeks ago.  And here’s the upshot of it.

Hinderaker writes:  “On Monday I got a phone call from a man named Easton Elliott. We talked briefly on Monday, and have had additional telephone conversations since then. Elliott*,” with an asterisk, “is a businessman who lives in the Las Vegas area, and he thinks he knows what really happened to Harry Reid. This is the story as he related it to me.”

Note: Hinderaker had an asterisk * after the name Elliott because “Easton Elliott” is the name he goes under in his second career as an addiction recovery life coach. In his business career he uses his given name. He is known to the AA members who witnessed the events he describes here, and to the recovery community generally, as Easton Elliott.

Here you go.  Elliott, the caller, who wanted to speak to Hinderaker and me, “Elliott spent a portion of last New Year’s Eve at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in Henderson, Nevada,” which, for all intents and purposes, is Vegas.  “His AA group has meetings every hour on New Year’s Eve, along with a pot luck supper. There were approximately 20 people present at the meeting during the events,” that you will next hear about.

Some time between 10:00 and 11:30 p.m., a man entered the meeting. His appearance was striking: there was blood on his clothing, beginning around his midsection. His left hand was swollen. He appeared to be somewhat intoxicated and was visibly agitated,” and he wanted to share, at this AA meeting.

He introduced himself as ‘Larry.’  In a group discussion that was heard by a number of people, Larry said that he had just had a fight with a family member. Larry said he had been at a family get-together, and he didn’t remember much about the fight because he had blacked out. When he came to, he was rolling on the ground, fighting with a family member, and his clothes were bloody,” and in fact that’s how he showed up at the AA meeting.  “Now, he said, he was frightened that the Secret Service would come after him.” […]

So this guy, Larry, “stayed for the rest of the meeting, and for a while afterward. There is a front room where coffee is served, and he remained there for a while. At some point during that time, he asked whether anyone could give him a ride to Searchlight. Larry’s appearance at the AA meeting was memorable, as references to fighting, bloody clothes and so on are extraordinary in that group.” It’s not something that happens at every AA meeting.

And the guy we were talking to, Easton Elliott, he didn’t think much more about this guy, Larry, until several weeks later when “he saw a newspaper story about Larry Reid, Harry Reid’s brother, being arrested for DUI and assaulting a highway patrolman. The story was accompanied by a photograph, and Elliott immediately recognized Larry Reid as the ‘Larry’ who had attended the AA meeting,” weeks previous, who was drunk, who was bloody, who had a swollen left fist, and claimed he had been in a fight with a family member and was worried the Secret Service was gonna follow him.

Then everybody said, “Whoa, wait a minute!  The guy who came in here who we thought was a kook is Harry Reid’s brother?”  So they started putting two and two together because this story’s accompanied by a photograph. Easton Elliott “immediately recognized Larry Reid as the ‘Larry’ who had attended the AA meeting on New Year’s Eve. Putting that fact together with news stories about Harry Reid being admitted to a hospital on New Year’s Day, and with Larry’s references to the Secret Service, he concluded that the family member with whom Larry fought was Harry Reid. He also knew that Harry Reid’s home is within a short distance of the location of the AA meeting.

[…]Larry Reid is 73, a short, pugnacious guy, and is a well-known brawler, by the way, subsequent research has indicated.

Larry Reid

Now, “Subsequent to the news story about Larry Reid’s arrest, Elliott discussed with several others who had been present on New Year’s Eve his belief that ‘Larry’ had been Larry Reid. They, too, recognized Larry from the newspaper photograph. One of those who had been present at the AA meeting called Las Vegas’s Channel 8 to tell them about Larry Reid’s account of fighting with a family member, but that person said that whoever he spoke with at the television station told him they were not interested.” […]

So, bottom line, somebody attacked Harry Reid on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day.  That much seems clear from pictures and from the nature of his injuries.  Nobody’s investigated this.  […]

As Hinderaker wrote, his investigation “consisted of answering my telephone.” And he posits maybe “those reporters who were so eager to dig through Sarah Palin’s dumpster and track down Mitt Romney’s high school classmates,” or to find out whether Romney had paid his taxes or not, “will now swing into action, carry out an actual investigation, and either confirm or refute the events described by Mr. Elliott,” and the people at the AA meeting.

And, by the way, the man known as Easton Elliott was more than willing to come on the radio.  In fact, he wanted to.  He was more than willing to tell the story himself.  He’s willing to go on TV.  He said: “I’m a citizen who believes in God and feels compelled to do the right thing — tell the truth. Harry Reid could learn a lesson from me in being truthful!

He also made a point over and over of saying he’s not a political guy.  He’s a small businessman. He’s had several businesses in the Vegas area.  Hinderaker called Harry Reid’s spokesman, gave him an opportunity to comment, and they didn’t deny it, but they said they’re not gonna comment, either.

So that’s the extent of our knowledge about what happened.  Dingy Harry’s out now blaming me for starting a rumor that he was beaten up by the mob.  I didn’t say mob, but it’s clear from the pictures that an exercise machine in a bathroom did not do what happened to Harry Reid.  Is it not?  So now there’s this story on the table, that it was his brother, Larry Reid, and they got in a family fight.

For John Hinderaker’s account, much of which was repeated by Rush Limbaugh yesterday, see “What Really Happened to Harry Reid? Part 3.”

Dennis Prager, Michael Medved and the Gatekeepers of the Right

Dennis Prager

Do you ever listen to Dennis Prager?

I do. He’s a very wise man.

So is Michael Medved, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, and a host of other conservative talk show hosts. All of them very wise men. By listening to them speak, or by reading their books, you can learn a lot about morality, conservatism, liberalism, the right, the left, economics, etc., but the one thing you’ll never hear is the Truth.

As wise as all these men are, they choose to live in a sort of conspiratorial fantasy world. A world where if it’s not on the front page of the New York Times, or front and center on the NBC Nightly News, then it’s not real. It doesn’t exist.

This is ironic, because all of these men constantly rail about lies and distortions in the mainstream media. And yet they allow this same mainstream media, though proven by their own experience and observation to be untruthful and riddled with bias, to dictate their reality. Think about that for a moment. These are otherwise very intelligent men, who represent millions of other otherwise very intelligent men, who allow their lives to be controlled and manipulated by the very same media sources which they themselves know to be filled with disinformation and lies. It’s positively mind-boggling.

You can prove this to yourself very easily: call up one of their shows and mildly suggest that perhaps the truth about Sandy Hook or the Boston Marathon bombing are not quite what we’ve been told in the mainstream media. You’ll be insulted, slandered, and hung up on so fast it’ll make your head spin.

Forget facts. Never mind evidence. Those subjects are simply off-limits. So are the words “crisis actor”, aka Obama’s Connecticut social security numbers or homosexual past, satanism in the entertainment industry, the 1982 Consent Agreement between the RNC and DNC, any mention of the connection between vaccines and autism, and a whole host of other subjects.

Some people suggest that these men are professional disinformationists, or controlled opposition. I’m not sure about that. It’s hard for me to imagine Dennis Prager or Michael Medved as less than honorable men. And yet they are far too intelligent to be labeled useful idiots. Perhaps useful intelligentsia.

Rush Limbaugh is too damn smart not to know what’s really going on. Is he afraid of losing credibility if he speaks the Truth? Is that what they’re all afraid of?

These men have all built nice cushy careers peddling a form of mainstream conservatism. Is their fear of losing their prestige greater then their sense of duty to God and country? I wonder if they really believe in the fantasy world that they claim exists. It takes courage to face reality and look evil in the face. Most men are just too frightened to do that. For most people, the idea that evil exists and the possibility that the reality they’ve grown up with might be false is enough to set off alarm bells in most people’s heads and short circuit their brain.

What do you think?

The demon is coming out of Obama again

Four years ago in mid-October, less than 3 weeks before the mid-term elections of 2010, it wasn’t looking good for the Democrats. Indeed, that was the election in which the Republicans wrestled a House majority away from Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Demonrats.

In campaign rallies during the weekend of Oct. 15-16, 2010, Obama was angry.

More than angry, he was frightening looking — which was noted by Drudge Report as well as Rush Limbaugh, who said, “An American president has never had facial expressions like this. At least we’ve never seen photos of an American president with facial expressions like this.”

These were some of the pics taken of Obama in those 2010 rallies. Trust what your instincts tell you.

Flash forward four years to another mid-term election campaign rally.

As in the midterm elections of 2010, once again it’s not looking good for the Demonrats.

The pic below was taken of Obama when he spoke at a rally for Gov. Pat Quinn, D-Ill., at Chicago State University on Sunday, Oct. 19, 2014, in Chicago.

Look at his eyes!!! Trust what your instincts tell you.

Here’s a close-up of those eyes.

evil angry Obama eyes Oct. 2014

I see anger, desperation, madness….

And behind those eyes, there’s nobody there.

Just emptiness. A vacuum.

Earlier that day, Obama was at a campaign rally in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, for the gubernatorial campaign of Maryland lieutenant governor Anthony G. Brown, in which members of the audience walked out while the president of the United States of America was still speaking. (See “Mainly black crowd walks out on Obama at Democratic campaign rally“)

As in 2010, once again Obama’s mask — the narcissistic psychopath’s charming social mask — is slipping and what emerges sure ain’t pretty.

It’s unholy and demonic.

Rush Limbaugh wins children’s book ‘author of the year’ despite libs’ protest

Rush-Revere-Book-Cover

May 15, 2014 by 

Rush Limbaugh was awarded “Author of the Year” by the Children’s Book Council on Wednesday, despite early protests of his inclusion in the competition.

The announcement was made at the seventh annual Children’s Choice Book Awards charity gala benefitting Every Child a Reader in New York City.

When Limbaugh was named among the contestants for the 2014 Children’s and Teen Choice Book contest, outraged liberals demanded he be removed from contention. But the book council refused.

The Children’s Book Council described the award on its website:

The Children’s Choice Book Awards is the only national book awards program where the winning titles are selected by kids and teens. Young readers across the country voted in record numbers for their favorite books, author, and illustrator at bookstores, school libraries, and at ccbookawards.com, casting more than 1,261,000 votes.

Limbaugh received the award for last year’s, “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans.” His recently released sequel, “Rush Revere and the First Patriots,” has seen tremendous success.

This Is Our Answer To Boko Haram Terrorists . Duct Tape Please.

Folks I found this yesterday after my post on the kidnaping of the school girls in Nigeria. Rush Limbaugh apparently covered it on his show May 8, 2014 I’ll copy the transcript below.

I’ve got to tell you this is pathetic. The FLOTUS standing there with a sign and a friggen hashtag (Whatever the hell that is). I guess it’s a Tweet for those that tweet. Droopy face and a tweet for all the world to see. We are a laughing stock in my opinion.

This is one of those times I do not want to know what my Country is doing. They had better have Delta force, Seal Teams, Green Berets. etc…. all descending upon that Godforsaken country ready to bring those girls home. Say a Prayer please for the girls and our troops heading there I hope.

Are We Really This Powerless?

Really? Is this what we have come to?

Really? Is this what we have come to?

May 08, 2014

RUSH: I can’t believe this.  We are one of the few people talking about the 300 or more Nigerian girls kidnapped by Boko Haram, which, when I hear that name I think of A Whiter Shade of Pale, Procol Harum.  That’s not who it is.  This is a terrorist bunch. Hillary’s State Department refused to designate them a terrorist bunch.

From The Daily Beast: “Hillary’s State Department Refused to Brand Boko Haram as Terrorists — Under Hillary Clinton, the State Department repeatedly declined to fully go after the terror group responsible for kidnapping hundreds of girls.” And that means they are what?  They’re African.  They’re black.  It’s a strange article to see in The Daily Beast.  You think maybe The Daily Caller or Breitbart, but this is in The Daily Beast.

But why only blame Hillary?  Obama could have overruled her, for crying out loud.  And if you listen to Obama — you know, he’s here.  He’s out here, folks. My travel schedule has been such that I haven’t been affected travel-wise.  Have you guys been affected travel-wise?  I haven’t, either.  But man, it is sickening to read in the media out here what’s going on.  It’s just sickening. It’s depressing. It’s another collection of stuff that just doesn’t make sense.  The people bending over forwards and backwards to be with this guy, you would think would run as far from him as they could get, and they can’t wait to get close. It just boggles the mind.

Anyway, so we’ve been unaffected by that travel-wise, but it’s been interesting to see how the local constabulary has gotten prepared for the visit of the president.  Anyway, he’s outta here today, right? He heads down to San Diego, then up to San Jose.  This is a big fundraising swirl, and he’s been given a bunch of awards along the way.  I mean, it doesn’t compute, folks.  You take a guy who gave the speech he gave in Cairo, the people giving him awards out here last night, none of it makes any sense.  You literally go crazy if you spend any time trying to logically understand it.  Because there isn’t any logic.  It’s just pure, 100% politics and groupie-ism.  Rich people willing to pay to be close to power, no matter who holds it.

Anyway, back to this Daily Beast story.  It’s really odd because it’s a left-wing publication that is making a big deal out of this group, Boko Haram, not being branded as terrorists.  This is the same bunch that did not want to admit that it was a terror attack that killed four people in Benghazi.  This is the same bunch that wants everybody to believe that they have vanquished Al-Qaeda, that they have vanquished terrorism.  Talk about living in a dream world.

“The State Department under Hillary Clinton fought hard against placing the al Qaeda-linked militant group Boko Haram on its official list of foreign terrorist organizations for two years. And now, lawmakers and former US officials are saying that the decision may have hampered the American government’s ability to confront the Nigerian group that shocked the world by abducting hundreds of innocent girls.”

What in the world is shocking that Al-Qaeda would commit acts of terror?  What, are we supposed think that Mitch McConnell is gonna grab a bunch of Republicans and fly over to Nigeria and kidnap the girls?  Are they so caught up in this Republican War on Women that they can’t believe that left-wing terror groups would do it?  Damn right left-wing terror — (interruption)  Well, where else would you put Al-Qaeda on the political scale?

Anyway, my point is, why just blame Hillary?  Certainly Obama could have overruled her. And to hear him speak, he talks about it, what Boko Haram has been doing has been on his mind constantly for years.  That’s what he’s been telling these people at these fundraisers.  So worried and so concerned.

Anyway, that’s not the point.  The point is — I have to show you a couple pictures here on the Dittocam, and I’m not gonna be able to zoom it or any of that, but I think we’ll get close enough.  It’s actually one picture printed twice here, and it’s unbelievable.  And before I show you this I want to ask you, what message does this send?  And then I want to ask you, is the United States really this powerless? And then if you answer yes, we are really this powerless, then isn’t Obama to blame? 

By the way, speaking of that, a little minor detour.  Dan Henninger yesterday in the Wall Street Journal had his weekly column, and like everybody, he’s just been watching in stunned amazement as the left, without any compunction whatsoever, just simply goes out and destroys people for saying things the left doesn’t want to hear, doesn’t like. Like the guy at Mozilla, Condi Rice at Rutgers, things like that, and it’s all made possible by Obama.  Every bit of it.  And he cites a specific — it’s all emanating from universities, and he cites a specific compromise ruling at a specific university involving Title IX that sent the signal to every university in the country that they are free to engage in this fascistic behavior.  So that’s coming up, too.

But this picture is of the first lady.  It’s about what Boko Haram did, and it is a plea to try to get the kidnapped girls returned.  This is Mrs. Obama in the diplomatic reception room in the White House.  I’ve been there many times.  It’s one of those popular entrances used for diplomats, guests, friends, and so forth.  You go through the diplomatic reception room, take a left, and there’s the elevator to the residence.  It’s real close there.  It’s where Obama comes out and gets in the helicopter, all the presidents do.  That’s the diplomatic reception room, most cases.  That’s where the picture is taken, looks like.

I just think this is pathetic.  I’m just stunned.  We got 300 Nigerian girls kidnapped by an Al-Qaeda group, and nobody cared or talked about it for a while. Hillary wouldn’t call ’em a terror group.  Now, all of a sudden, for some reason, we’re on a big push to get ’em back and this is how…? Well, you can’t read the writing. It’s a plea for people on Twitter to get in gear and bring the girls back.  It’s #BringBackOurGirls.  Apparently there’s a Twitter… What do you call ’em, handle?  It’s the number sign 
“BringBackOurGirls.” (interruption) It’s a hashtag, okay.

Anyway, there’s Mrs. Obama looking sad and grim, and the sad thing here is that the low-information crowd that’s puddling around out there on Twitter is gonna think we’re actually doing something about it. (interruption)  Exactly. Yeah, they’ll say, “At least she is trying, Mr. Limbaugh. What are you doing?  At least Mrs. Obama cares! At least they’re trying to get them back.”

Here it is again, closer.  See it?  Is that not pathetic?  What the hell message does that send? Imagine if bin Laden were still alive.

( This could wake Bin Laden from the dead laughing so hard )

Imagine Ayman al-Zawahiri. Can you imagine? They’re laughing at this over in the huts and so forth wherever they are.  It is just unbelievable.  #BringBackOurGirls. They’re Nigerian, unless there’s something that we don’t know. 

But are we really this powerless?  The correct way to look at this is the audience that will see it — the Twitter, low-information universe — will say, “Oh, Mrs. Obama! At least they care, and at least they’re trying to do something.”  If somebody — sadly, unfortunately — had a family member kidnapped, this is might be what they would do, right?

They’d go to Twitter and say, “Bring back my daughter.”  I find it just sad.  I mean, this is pathetic, the message this sends to people around the world.  The Taliban has been doing a lot worse to schoolgirls than Boko Haram has.  Obama’s negotiating with them in Afghanistan.

America is a Nation of Eunuchs

When has America become a nation of eunuchs, being tyrannized by the whiny few?

But it’s not just any whiny minority. It has to be a group that the Left has designated to be An Official Victim Group.

Yesterday, on his radio talk show, Rush Limbaugh brought up the subject of the alleged offensiveness of the name of the NFL team, the Washington Redskins.

Roger Goodell

Roger Goodell, the commissioner of the National Football League (NFL), was on a Washington sports radio station and was asked about Dan Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins, saying he will never change the name of the Redskins, despite some people allegedly finding the word “Redskins” to be offensive.

Goodell was asked: “Is that his [Snyder’s] decision to make alone…?”

Imagine that. The owner of a private business cannot decide on his own what name to call his business!

Goodell answered: “I grew up in Washington.  The Colts were my team early on, and then I became a Redskins fan.  I know the team name is part of their history and tradition, and that’s something that’s important to the Redskins fans, and I think what we have to do, though, is we have to listen.  If one person’s offended, we have to listen.

Did you get that? The commissioner of the NFL says:

“If one person is offended, we have to listen.”

That is the same eunuch mentality that led a school in Brentwood, Tennessee to ban pork from the school’s menu to avoid offending Muslims.

Sunset Elementary School

Todd Starnes reports for Fox News Radio, Aug. 15, 2013, that Sunset Elementary School banned students from eating ham sandwiches, BLT’s and anything else made with pork.

Parents found out about this ridiculous Muslim-appeasing ban when Sunset’s third grade teachers sent home an “Approved Snack List” for the school year, which specifically banned anything that comes from a pig.

memoThe memorandum says:

“Starting Monday, August 12, 2013 your child must provide their own snack from the above approved snack list.” “Only choose a food from the following list to bring into school for snack.” And in bold-face type: “No other food items are permitted.”

The approved snack list consists of 7 items, beginning with Item No. 1: Fresh Fruits.

Item No. 3 on the approved snack list states “No meats containing pork.”

There was such an uproar among parents about the pork ban that a day after the ban went into effect, Williamson County Schools posted a message on their Facebook page telling parents to ignore the rules:

“Schools should only be offering suggested snack choices, and that information will be sent home only if your child is in a classroom where there is a food allergy. Any reference to not allowing pork products in school is incorrect. Please disregard.”

The district lamely said the memorandum was to address food allergies but did not explain why pork was banned. One parent wrote on Facebook: “I’ve never heard of a life-threatening pork allergy.”

Nashville radio host Michael DelGiorno wrote on his Facebook page that the memo’s approved snack list was a “typical list for a Madrassa.” One of his listeners wrote: “If you think this has anything to do with something besides appeasing Muslims then you are either stupid or willfully ignorant.”

Report Says Valerie Jarrett Gave The Order To Stand Down In Benghazi

I’m thinking skippy doesn’t even scratch without Broom Hilda‘s permission. Yikes, she’s scary.   

She eats Children. She is Evil Personified. Yikes!!!

She eats Children. She is Evil Personified. Yikes!!!

http://www.examiner.com/article/report-says-valerie-jarrett-gave-the-order-to-stand-down-benghazi

August 8, 2013

A post at the Conservative Report Online made the shocking claim that Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett gave the order to stand down in Benghazi during the Sept. 11 terror attack that saw four Americans killed, citing only unnamed “confidential sources.” The report was discussed by Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday and an editorial at the Investor’s Business Daily said Wednesday that it would not have been the first time Jarrett issued such an order.

“The military-order, not to initiate action, saving our men in Benghazi, was issued by the President’s Advisor, Valerie Jarrett,” Chip Jones wrote.

Limbaugh said that if the story is true, it would explain “all of the serial lies and the cover-ups and the obfuscation and all of the efforts that were made to distract people’s attention from this.”

“Somebody had to give the order, and Obama was off the grid. That has always, to me, been one of the most interesting aspects of Benghazi. Five o’clock he tells Panetta and whoever else — we were originally told that Hillary, secretary of state, was there, too,” he added.

Naturally, the ultra-left wing Media Matters weighed in, attacking Limbaugh for mentioning the story.

Others also reported on Jones’ account, but did not get scrutinized by Media Matters.

The Blaze said the allegations are worth noting for two main reasons:

  1. The White House hasn’t been forthcoming with details about the deadly terror attack. In fact, the administration has gone out of its way to craft blatantly false narratives involving a YouTube video; and
  2. It’s been widely reported that Jarrett’s influence has shaped our management of international crises, specifically her role in convincing President Obama to call off the planned raid on Osama bin Laden’s Pakistani hideout three separate times.

Meredith Jessup said she is taking the report with a grain of salt, but added that the burden of proof is on the White House, since it “has worked overtime to muddy the water and obfuscate the truth.”

Now the administration is claiming the entire scandal is “phony,” a mere distraction cooked up by Republicans to keep Congress from acting on Obama’s economic plans.

“Until the Obama administration is forthright and truthful with the American people, the rumor mill will continue churning out reports from unnamed sources,” Jessup added.
