Study: Coffee Isn't Bad for You
RUSH: From Reuters, more medical news: "Coffee drinkers have no more risk of getting illnesses such as heart disease or cancer, and are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes, according to a German study involving more than 40,000 people..." Now, how many of you have been laboring under the belief that coffee is a health risk, that coffee raises blood pressure and constricts the blood vessels, that coffee leads to heart attacks, that coffee does some horrible things to your cardiovascular system? Ah, ah, ah, ah! Coffee, oat bran, you name it. "Coffee drinkers have no more risk of getting illnesses such as heart disease or cancer, and are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes, according to a German study involving more than 40,000 people... The findings, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, came in the wake of many previous studies that produced conflicting results, with some tying coffee drinking to an increase in heart disease, cancer, stroke and more."
Another health myth debunked, and they're all over.
Five US Service Members Found Responsible for Koran Burnings
RUSH: The three separate investigations must be over because -- dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut! -- the New York Times is announcing: "Five American service members and an Afghan-American linguist may face disciplinary action in the burning of Korans at a NATO base, an event a week ago that plunged Afghanistan into days of violent protests, according to the preliminary conclusions of a joint military investigation. 'All six will be referred to the proper U.S. authorities for further action,' said an official familiar with the joint Afghan-American investigation..." By the way, there is no mention in the New York Times' very long article of the report that the Korans were burned because Muslim prisoners had written in them.
Koch Bros. on Obama's Nixonian Enemies List
RUSH: The enemies of Obama are under assault.
Talk to the Koch brothers!
Charles and David Koch, of Koch Industries in Wichita. Private citizens are under direct assault from the White House. There are people commenting that they've never seen this before. George W. Bush did not personally attack private citizens from the White House and set his army against them. (Clinton did with me.) George H. W. Bush didn't. Jimmy Carter didn't. Ronald Reagan didn't. This is unprecedented: The president of the United States is personally directing attacks against private citizens who happen to disagree with him. The anger that's directed in this country at anybody other than Obama is misdirected. The one real threat to your freedom -- to your birth control pills, to your abortion, to whatever -- comes from the White House, from the Democrat Party, not from a guy on the radio who can't do anything about it. Obama apparently has an Enemies List.
Remember the last time a president had an Enemies List and what happened to him?
RUSH: Ten power plants are being shut down in Illinois, by the way. Rahm Emanuel is happily announcing that today. I think most of them are in Illinois. Ten coal power plants will be shut down the next couple of years.
