RUSH: Koskinen Doesn’t Know Much Of Anything Going On At The IRS

RUSH: But about Koskinen, as he explains all this, I think it’s pretty clear — let me read the paragraph to you from Fox News.  “IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, testifying before a House oversight subcommittee, stressed that he does not know ‘how they found them’ or ‘whether there’s anything on them or not.’ But he said the inspector general’s office advised him the investigators are reviewing tapes to see if they contain any ‘recoverable’ material.”

Now, at this point it’s safe to assume Mr. Koskinen doesn’t know much, if anything, that’s going on at the IRS.  “The revelation is significant because the IRS claimed, when the agency first told Congress about the missing emails, that backup tapes ‘no longer exist because they have been recycled,’” and now they found the backup tapes.  A-ha.  Now, we still don’t know whether the tapes that the inspector general has contain any Lois Lerner e-mails.  We don’t know that yet.  We’re relying on the IG here to be forthcoming, but it’s still the Regime investigating itself here.  But Koskinen has assured us that the investigators are now checking.  In other words, they’re investigating.  What’s the hurry?  There’s no hurry.  We got until the November elections to find all this out.

RUSH: If I Were Gay I’d Be Very Worried If I Lived In New York Today

RUSH:  I’ll tell you what, if I were lesbian, and I’m not — if I were gay, and I’m not — if I were bisexual, which I’m not — and if I were transgender, which I’m not — I would be very, very worried if I lived in New York today. Well, because of what Governor Cuomo is gonna do.  I would be really, really worried.

“New York State is launching a campaign to collect coordinated data on residents’ sexual orientation as part of a comprehensive effort to improve health and human services for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender New Yorkers.” Uh-huh.  Right.  If I were gay, which I’m not — if I were lesbian, which I’m not — if I were transgender, which I’m not — this would worry me.  That they’re claiming to be looking out for me and they want to know all about my sexual orientation?  It’s an announcement that came from — a little bit of a See, I Told You So here.  It is an announcement that came from the New York state health department.

RUSH: Obama’s Team Of Experts Could Be In Danger As They Go Down And Study The Border

RUSH: Obama needs a team of experts on the Southern border to go down and study whether or not there’s a problem when he’s got governors all over this country, all over the border who are going crazy trying to protect the people that live in their states? 

Now, if Obama’s team of experts — if they get back alive, ’cause, I mean, that news that Governor Perry had last night? I mean, 203,000 people in the last five years were booked into jail.  That’s not the total number that came across. That’s just the number came across ended up in jail — and of those 203,000, 3,000 homicides, 8,000 sexual assaults.

So Obama’s team of experts could be in danger as they go down and study the border.  If they get back alive, and if they are able to report their findings to Obama, maybe then Obama will then appoint a blue ribbon panel to study the problem a little more in depth.  This is the way liberals do things. 

They send an exploratory panel down there; they come back and say, “Yeah, we may have a little problem here in this stretch,” and Obama says (impression), “All right, blue ribbon panel.” He’ll announce it at the White House and the blue ribbon panel will be there, and that announcement will take the place of actual accomplishments.

The appointment of the blue ribbon panel will equal the problem being dealt with and we’ll move on to something else.  They’ll report back to him sometime after the midterm elections. That’s usually the way Obama tackles these kind of problem.

Howard Stern: Roger Waters Of Pink Floyd Should “Shut His Mouth” About His Anti-Israel Views

[CONTENT WARNING: Very Strong Language]

This Via Jason Howerton @ TheBlaze

Popular SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern went off on a belligerent caller last week after he argued Israel is “at fault” for the current conflict between the Jewish nation and the terrorists of Hamas in Gaza. Stern has been consistently pro-Israel in his views.

The caller first claimed that Stern would “change his tune” and turn his back on Israel when Comedy Central host John Oliver was in the studio — and Stern was having none of it.

“I’m not gonna change my tune. Israel’s at no fault,” Stern said.

“Israel is at fault, actually,” the caller said.

“F*** off!” Stern shot back before calling the caller another very profane name.


Stern also said Roger Waters of Pink Floyd should “shut his mouth” about his anti-Israel views.

RUSH: ‘Public Christianity’ Helps Sportswriters Dump On Tony Dungy

RUSH: The media was just orgasming over this.  They couldn’t get enough of it.  It was the storyline.  It was, “Oh, what a great country. Oh, we’ve overcome,” all of this.  Well, when they went and talked to Dungy and Lovie Smith about it, they didn’t fall in line.  Dungy and Lovie Smith said, “You know, that’s not what’s important to us.”  I don’t have the exact quotes, but I could dig ‘em up. 

Dungy said that the important thing was, “Yeah, we’ve got two black head coaches here, but two men of God. Two devoutly Christian men have risen to the pinnacle.”  That was what Dungy said.  That, to him, was what was noteworthy about this Super Bowl.  He didn’t relegate the racial component to irrelevancy, but it was not the most important thing to him — and the media?

You could see they just didn’t quite understand. They wanted these two guys to jump on the first two black coaches in the Super Bowl storyline and just take it all the way to end zone. They just wanted that to be the thing, the greatest thing. “Oh, wow, look at us! We’re cool! Look,” and the media was thinking, “Look what we made happen because we’re the ones who have been pressuring these owners to hire people,” the Rooney Rule and so forth.

The media said, “Look what we did,” and here these two guys say, “No, we’re Christians first.”  I’m just telling you that that’s why it is thought that there’s a “subculture” of Christianity, the Christian right in the NFL. It makes people nervous.  So Dungy saying what he said about Michael Sam, the other leg that he’s standing on there — this public Christianity, devout Christian stuff — makes people nervous.

That will help and facilitate sportswriters dumping on Dungy, ’cause they already don’t like that about him.  And then if they want to, they can blame his Christianity for his views on Michael Sam and his statement that if he were a coach, he wouldn’t draft him.  “Yeah…”  They probably are whispering this to each other already.  These sportswriters talk. “Yeah, you know the real reason?”

I can hear them now. 

“The real reason is he’s a Christian. You know what THEY think about gays. That’s why! He’s not gonna say that but that’s why.” I guarantee that undercurrent is out there circulating, and it’ll pop up. It’s effervescing, and it will rise to the top, if it hasn’t already.  I haven’t looked. I haven’t spent any time looking at every sports media outlet seeing what people are saying, that may have already been said and reached the surface.
