Pearls of Wisdom

"The thought that so many people get their news from social media really is scary."

"Gay marriage?  What gay marriage?  Gay marriage, that's old news.  Nobody's talking about gay marriage today, folks.  Everybody's talking about gun control today."

"Obama's got his big White House event going with his usual collection of human victims standing behind him, talking about all these "common sense proposals" to keep our kids safe. Once again, it's a clear illustration that what we get on cable news isn't news anymore."

"If you go back and look at the numbers for nightly newscasts back in their heyday -- if you add the three up -- they were close to 100% of people watching television.  Now what are they?  I mean, they're minuscule compared to what they were."

"If you're gathering information on website and you do take time to scroll through the comments. Some of the stuff that people say there is just embarrassing, and it's banal, and it's disgusting.  It occurs because these people are anonymous, and they can say and do whatever they want, and nobody's gonna know who they are."

"The rest of the media constantly is hand-wringing and lamenting, "What has happened to our culture? We're so divided!"  One of the premises of Obama's election 2008 was he was gonna unite everybody, if you recall.  Obviously that hasn't happened."

"On Twitter, a real, accredited, knows-his-stuff journalist is no better than Anastas Mikoyan (who has no idea what he's doing) writing things."

"Half the people on Twitter, at least, folks (don't doubt me on this) who are posting political news are political hacks paid by Democrats and their front groups. They know exactly what they're doing."

"The media is a like any other group of people.  Their universe is all that matters."

"We make jokes about the media that live in New York and Washington and would need a visa to actually get into Oklahoma and would need a map to show them where it is.  You know, life outside of their universe insignificant and doesn't matter."

"Low-information status, among those who hold it, is not what is considered... They're not aware that they are that.  Just the opposite.  They think they know things nobody else does."

"If same-sex marriage is a big subject of the day on Twitter/Facebook, then that must be America. It's all oriented toward what everybody thinks is hot and hip, the latest that attracts people and focuses their attention."

"Prior to 1988, people had no choice but than to absorb some news.  Now granted, it was news from a left-wing standpoint. There's no question about that. But they were at least exposed to it.  They had no choice."

"Fascinating, isn't it, that the Republicans winning the House for the first time in 40 years happens at the same time that the media monopoly blows up."

"The truth is, the country has never been unified, folks.  There never has been a time where it's been idyllic and everybody loving everybody else and getting along with a dominant, vastly dominant, great majority point of view held by all the people the country."

"We've always been a roiled culture.  That's part of freedom."

"It's the most amazing thing. Obama's into his fifth year as president, and not yet do people associate his actions with what's happening in the country."

"Whatever the outlet, the news source is Obama right now.  The news source is the Democrat Party.  The news source is liberalism.  The problem is that many people consuming it have no idea."

"I've had so many people tell me that they are shocked that AM radio still even exists with all the different listening options."

"I do believe radio is to be listened to, not seen.  But I still think it boils down to content."

"Why don't we just give away every issue so it's no longer a problem?  Yeah, and let's just cancel elections and say, "Democrats, you are now in power in perpetuity. That way nobody will criticize us."

"Last night I'm engaged, as I always am, in show prep. You know, life for me is show prep.  Everything that I do is potential show prep.  Everything I do holds potential as content on this program."

"The Republican leadership thinks the best way to avoid losing elections is to let the Democrats win every controversial issue."

"This is how the Drive-Bys convince themselves that they're on the right side of history. Because they live in the Twitter/social media bubble -- and they come to believe that the crazies posting there represent middle America. I am convinced that that's what's happening."

"The Democrats are never gonna get rid of the GOP as a campaign tactic, no matter what the GOP does.  Last I looked, it was the Republican Party that ended slavery.  We're still racist.  Dick Cheney came out in 2004, and was one of the early Republican supporters of gay marriage.  How's that working out for him in terms of the left stopping their assault on the guy?  It didn't."

"If the Republicans are gonna win,  it's gonna be on the economy.  And that's what needs not be forgotten here."

"I want to take you back, folks, because do you remember just two years ago Obama and Hillary, by the way, were both dead set against gay marriage.  Not just Obama and Hillary, but practically every Democrat running for office."

"All Obama had to do was champion gay marriage before the Supreme Court, and that money just came rolling in, and all he's gotta do to keep that money rolling in is still come out in favor of it."

"Obama's always gonna say, no matter what the Republicans do, that they're opposed to it.  Put another way: How does the Republican Party get any credit if the Supreme Court legalizes it?"

"Sometimes I watch Netflix on the iPad.  If I'm sitting on the sofa and I don't want to get up and walk five feet to get my TV remote, I'll watch it on the iPad."

"Obama's gonna continue to get the money from the gay activists because he came out for it.  That money is never gonna go to the Republicans no matter what the Supreme Court does."

"There has to be a way to attach Obama to what's happening to the country.  Now, the way Obama continues to escape that attachment is by always campaigning, never appearing to govern, and thereby he never seems to be in charge of anything that's gone wrong."

"If you can't buy gasoline or food or if you're not confident that you're gonna be able to hold onto your house -- or worse than that, if you're not confident that the government's not gonna come and take the money out of your bank account -- you don't care who's marrying who."

"I'm telling you that there are some very wealthy and powerful money-manager types that I know, banking people that I know. They're terrified that what's happening in Cyprus could in fact happen here."

"In the Drive-By Media yesterday, the push was gay marriage.  Today in the Drive-By Media, the push is gun control.  That's all they're talking about.  So tomorrow? Wild guess, we'll be back to amnesty tomorrow, and that'll set us up for Sunday shows on all three, and then Monday, back to whatever's hot then."

"The language game, the left really excels at changing the language to benefit them politically, and they do it in such a way that a lot of people on our side have no idea what's happened until it's too late and the issue is already lost."

"Marriage is one thing, and it was not established on the basis of discrimination. It wasn't established on the basis of denying people anything.  "Marriage" is not a tradition that a bunch of people concocted to be mean to other people with.  But we allowed the left to have people believe that it was structured that way."
