Here's a good one from Limbaugh I heard today on the radio

So today I was driving to the store and bored enough to decide to turn on the radio. I flip through some stations and get to Limbaugh.

I tolerate it with no Daily Paul handy.

I listen a bit, and he goes to comparing how two different blogs give a different context on the Michelle Obama "Food Desert" thing.

He starts with this blog he never saw before and stumbled across -

Ben Swann. Lol

From what I heard, before the power lines' static drowned out the radio, it seemed he was in agreement with Swann's version - http://benswann.com/black-activitists-and-politicians-force-....

After the static got so bad that I couldn't hear anymore, I thought to myself...

I bet if Limbaugh had one iota of a clue that he was agreeing with a full blown Ron Paul supporter's blog while on the air he would drop dead of a heart attack.

LoL

"I listen a bit, and he goes to comparing how two different blogs give a different context on the Michelle Obama "Food Desert" thing."

Food Desert is part of Agenda 21 (destruction of the USA). Part of getting people out of their cars, as a neighborhood can be declared a food desert if it is over 1/2 mile - walking distance - from a fabulous grocery store. Huge grant opportunity for the "not-for-profit" (mmm-hmmm...) NGOs (central planners and economic development 'partners'). Just one of many examples of how fascists are bribed & rewarded with granted $ projects to usher in the agenda.

Poke around the USDA website for starters and most (here) will recognize the beast that is the UN Agenda 21.

To recognize the many facets of Agenda 21 and why it is being pushed through so easily, one must understand that good things can and are being be done for nefarious reasons. Manipulation abounds.

I bet Limbaugh's producers are well aware of Ben Swann

Limbaugh is trying to co-opt the liberty message. I have no doubt his producers follow what is going on with Ben Swann and others.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

Black Activists Drive Trader Joe's Out of Oregon Neighborhood
RUSH: Now, get this. Michelle Obama's constantly talking to us about "food deserts," right? She's constantly complaining that big-time supermarkets will not put healthy, fresh food in the 'hood. So, a chain tried to, and they were promptly kicked out. There are two stories on this, just to show you the different perspective. The first is from a little blog called Ben Swann Truth in Media. This is the first time I've run across it.

"Portland, Oregon, February 7, 2014 -- According to local media outlet, The Oregonian (Highlighted by the Associated Press), African American activists and politicians forced the Trader Joe's grocery chain to drop their plans for a new store in a predominately black community because the store would 'increase the desirability of the neighborhood,' for 'non-oppressed populations.' 'We run neighborhood stores, and our approach is simple,' said the grocery chain.

"'If a neighborhood does not want a Trader Joe's, we understand, and we won't open the store in question.' The Portland Development Commission offered a substantial discount to the grocery chain for a two acre parcel of land that appraised for $2.9 million. The land, which sat undeveloped for years, was offered to the chain for $500,000 in an attempt to bring high-paying jobs and prosperity," and healthy food and all that "to the neighborhood.

"The construction project, which was to include a two large anchor buildings and 10 retail shops, was promised to an African-American owned construction company. The Portland African-American Leadership Forum, along with the Mayor Charlie Hales, sent letters to Portland Development Commission citing that they were 'contributing to the destructive impact of gentrification and displacement of the African-American community.'

"They also said that they would remain opposed to all development of the land that doesn't solely benefit African-Americans." Now, the headline of the story: "Black Activists and Politicians Force Trader Joe's Grocery Out: Claim It Would Attract Too Many Whites." Now, when I saw that, I said, "Okay, I gotta be very careful here, because the Internet is filled with incendiary stuff that could be a trick." So I said, "I need to dig further into this." So I found an AP story about this.

It turns out that this blog pretty much has it right. We got Michelle Obama constantly complaining about "food deserts," and here we had a grocery chain that was gonna try to put a grocery store with healthy food in a black neighborhood, and the black neighborhood said, "Nope, because you might improve the neighborhood too much." The leaders of the black neighborhood and black politicians said, "No, no, no, no! Nope, nope. You're not gonna come in here.

"You're gonna 'increase the desirability of the neighborhood [for] non-oppressed populations.' We're not gonna have that!" Meaning: "We're not gonna let you come in here and change the makeup of our neighborhood no matter what. Okay, so the AP has a version of the story with a very, very misleading headline: "Trader Joe's Drops Black Neighborhood Store Plan -- Critics said the development would displace residents and perpetuate income inequality in one of the most rapidly gentrifying ZIP codes in the nation."

Meaning what?

Why do we even have to worry about "income inequality" now when the whole push is for not working, period? I mean, they can't have it both ways. Obama's out there saying, "Hey, middle America! Give America a raise!" Why? Why? We want to "liberate" people from having to work, period. Why give 'em a raise? Now we don't want to "perpetuate income inequality" by bringing in what? A grocery store that's high class by comparison? "We're not gonna have that. Can't have it. That raises the property values, other people want to move in, and then that would make the neighborhood really unlike what it is now. We can't have that."

So the grocery store comes in, property values go up, brings in a new wave of people who can afford the new property values and that changes what used to be there and would improve the neighborhood, and we can't do that. It might improve the schools. We can't do that. Apparently, because that would all happen, we can't have this grocery store. That's what the black leadership, that's what the blog said, it's what the AP story apparently confirms. (interruption) Well, I wouldn't go that far. That's what they're really saying, keep a ghetto a ghetto? Well, if that's what they're saying, then they can't complain anymore about not having healthy food in there, which is a bogus claim that Michelle Obama makes anyway. It's not even factually correct in the first place.

Awesome,

Thanks mrdeleted. Now I know what the static blocked out. Lol

Rush has been leaning libertarian lately

He seems to have turned a corner over the past year and is now outwardly speaking out against many of the same big old republicans that we are.

I guess my point is there is hope that minds can be changed...

Oh lordy if you believe limbaugh, Hoosieratarian

I have a Beckstab to sell you.

Looking for ratings???

Looking for ratings???

"Seems" is the operative word in your comment.

Gotta go alone with Danton on this one. He's pandering, just like the rest of the neocon mouth pieces, because the sheeple are waking up in greater numbers now. Their objective is to join them and then control them. Remember the job they did on the "Tea Party"? Ignored it, then ridiculed it and finally had good things to say about it as they steered it down the neocon path.

Don't be fooled by any of the media shills. They have to keep up their ratings to keep their jobs. The only minds that are (finally!) being changed are the sheeples'.

"Don't be fooled by any of the media shills."

Your statement needed to be repeated and repeated. Therefore I repeated it :-)

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Too Funny, Ironic!

...and as "Cyril" pointed out, it was the power of logic?....or more likely Rush is now "pandering" to the ever-growing Libertarian-Republicans.
We've all been down this road before, from campaign to campaign.

I also tend to tune into Savage; he's funnier than Hammity,who I absolutely abhor.
It's good to stay close to your enemies...easier to watch them.

Their lies will be sprinkled with some truth.

Hey, folks, check this out! That's the power of logic!

Hey, folks, check this out! That's the power of logic!

Do you know what we can infer by purely LOGICAL deduction from Limbaugh's statement ("... never saw before and stumbled across") ?

This... Either :

1) he has never googled "alternative media" before

- OR -

2) if he has, it was not until today!

The power of logic! :)

He's been really, really, really unlucky to not come across "Ben Swann" before ... in the journalistic domain...

Do you ever listen to that, Mike? Of all people, I bet you'd enjoy it.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

I love NPR..

I grew up listening to it. Family being from MA and all. Our Columbus station ranks as one of the highest. Ohio State is an incredible university. Makes for an Austin-like setting in snow. lol

Kool. Thanks.

I never ran across that site before.

Looks great for AM coffee when DP stories are running lean on a day and there's no interesting weather on the the weather channel. Lol

Does it bother anyone else

Does it bother anyone else that the government wanted to give a 2.4 million dollar subsidy to Trader Joe's so that they would build there?

That would seem really unfair to me.

I use to love Rush Limbaugh...

but when he put down Ron Paul, I realized he has both halves of his brain stuffed-up his backside.

Yeah I dropped him

when Limbaugh started cheerleading for W's war in Iraq and the war in Afghanistan I stopped listening. I tuned in again in 2008 to see what he had to say about McCain - considering all of the criticism and lampooning of Senator McCain he had done in the past. To my disappointment, he backed McCain and severely denounced Ron Paul. I didn't tune in at all in 2012. What he has to say no longer interests me. His jingoism unsettles me.
