Even after BLM stands down, Hannity pushes talk of violent conflict in cattle grazing fee dispute
WED APR 16, 2014 AT 10:40 AM PDT

...Hannity began his show on Fox last night by promoting a claim from a former Arizona sheriff that federal authorities were planning a midnight raid on Bundy's ranch. Hannity misidentified the sheriff as being from Nevada, didn't mention that the sheriff had been out of office for more than a decade, and overlooked the fact that the previous day the sheriff had said he would use his wife and daughters as human shields if to protect himself from the federal government, but Hannity's goal was to entertain his audience by promoting the possibility of an armed conflict between a rancher and the federal government, so he didn't bother worrying about the details. Instead:

Sean Hannity suggested Tuesday night that federal authorities are plotting a sneak attack on Cliven Bundy’s ranch after they appeared to back away from a standoff.

The recalcitrant rancher threatened violence against federal agents if they dared try to arrest him on the orders of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).

“First I’ve got to say, Harry, get your army out of Nevada, get your army away from my ranch and off Clark County public land – and keep it out!” Bundy said.“And if they come, we’ll deal with them tonight. That’s what we’ve got to do, we’ll just deal with you. Whether you got guts enough to do it, come on.”

Alas, there was no raid on Bundy's ranch last night, so in the slim chance that Hannity actually believed there was any chance of such a raid, he woke up this morning disappointed. Far more likely, he's just going to move on to his next right-wing fantasy, because as every right-wing jock knows, you've got to keep your audience on edge to keep them dialed in. It was a pathetic display from Hannity, but I'll concede this point: Until his stunt last night, I'd actually forgotten he was still on the air.

...So far, the Nevada Cattlemen's Association (NCA), which represents some 700 ranchers in the state, is taking a hands-off stance on Bundy's protest.

In a statement, the association noted that Bundy's case had been reviewed by a federal judge, and that a legal decision had been rendered to remove the cattle. The statement said that NCA "does not feel it is in our best interest to interfere in the process of adjudication in this matter, and in addition NCA believes the matter is between Mr. Bundy and the federal courts."

Asked about the Bundy situation, NCA president Ron Torell told ABC News, "This has gotten way out of hand."

Asked if other Nevada cattlemen were as angry with the federal government as Bundy, Torell said, "absolutely not."

It's true, he said, that many NCA members are disgruntled at having to deal with BLM's bureaucracy. But, he noted, 87 percent of Nevada land is public land, so cattlemen cannot survive on private land alone. "It's important for our permitees to work with the land management agencies. We want to be good stewards of the land -- to protect natural resources."

Nevada Journalists: Conservative Media Darling Rancher Is Clearly "Breaking The Law"
http://mediamatters.org/blog/2014/04/16/nevad...

...But for local journalists, many who have been reporting on him for decades, that image is very misguided.

"He clearly has captured national attention, among mostly conservative media who have portrayed him as a kind of a property rights, First Amendment, Second Amendment, range war kind of issue," Meyer noted. "That's how it has been framed, but the story goes back a lot longer and is pretty cut and dry as far as legal implications have been concerned."

He added that, "Cliven Bundy and his supporters are engaged in a fight that has already been settled. There are a number of people around these parts who have strong reservations about Bundy's actions."

Las Vegas Sun Editorial Page Editor Matt Hufman said depicting Bundy as a victim is wrong.

"The BLM had court orders against him in the 90s telling him to get off federal land," Hufman said. "He's got a bunch of these arguments about state's rights, it's not federal land, blah, blah, blah. All of the arguments have been knocked down."

Hufman cited Bundy's claim that his family has been on the land since the 1870s, adding, "a federal judge said the land's been owned by the federal government since 1848." He later added that Bundy "was paying grazing fees until 1993 then he stopped. At some point it was okay for him to pay grazing fees."

Ron Comings, news director of KLAS-TV in Las Vegas, offered a similar view.

"You have to keep in mind that huge percentages of western states are owned by the feds and that has rubbed people the wrong way for a long time," Comings said. "But they are the same people who will say that 'we all pay grazing fees and you have to pay and you should work this through other channels.' There are a lot of farmers and ranchers who pay the grazing fees whether they like it or not, and they see him as someone who is not. They say to stop paying their fees is like not paying your rent and you don't have a leg to stand on."

Comings also pointed out that many of the armed "militia" who came to Bundy's aid are from out of state, describing them as "just anti-government and ... just seen as outsiders who are coming in to jump on this issue."

Here is one for labor unions to go after:

"Is Wal-Mart the Welfare Queen of Corporate America?
by Eric McWhinnie
The U.S. tax code and corporate America are infamously known as a duo surrounded by political rhetoric and controversy. Many people argue that the country’s most well-known corporations receive far too many benefits from Uncle Sam and fail to pay living wages to employees. Others remind critics that these corporations create millions of jobs for the economy. With a new report focusing on the world’s largest retailer, the debate is not likely to end anytime soon.

Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) and the Walton family are the beneficiaries of tax breaks and subsidies estimated at more than $7.8 billion per year, according to Americans for Tax Fairness, a coalition of 400 organizations that strive for tax reform. Wal-Mart receives an estimated $6.2 billion annually from federal taxpayer subsidies, such as Section 8 Housing Program, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, and Medicaid. Another $1 billion is the result of Wal-Mart using tax breaks and loopholes to write off capital investments. The Waltons, America’s wealthiest family, also avoid an estimated $607 million in federal taxes each year through lower tax rates on capital gains.

“In addition to the $7.8 billion in annual subsidies and tax breaks, the Walton family is avoiding an estimated $3 billion in taxes by using specialized trusts to dodge estate taxes – and this number could increase by tens of billions of dollars,” said the report.“Wal-Mart also benefits significantly from taxpayer-funded public assistance programs that pump up the retailer’s sales. For example, Wal-Mart had an estimated $13.5 billion in food stamp sales last year.” Wal-Mart captured approximately 18 percent of the food-stamp market in 2013."

Typical, you can't refute Dr Patel's comments so you go straight for the Left's next favorite card in the deck (after the race card, of course): the "stick it to the 'rich'" card. So tell me, where was Dr Patel complaining about a drop in income? I'd say she was merely commenting on the disaster that is Obamacare from the viewpoint of someone on the front line.
Dumb & clueless sheep to the slaughter, you are so sad. You really have no idea of what
"the rich" really is in todays world. Its not some doctor posting on Topix., or for that matter anyone with an MD attached to their name. While doctors & hospitals continue to drive up medical costs, that hurts average working people who have been losing buying power for over 15 years. In todays world most MD's are just above average working people. The real money is not in medicine, not even close. Problem is the aggregate medical costs to regular citizens has gotten enormous when compared to todays income. Everyone in the medical field needs a small cut, and more people with insurance to pay the bills. They will bitch about the small sacrifice, but they will still take the money to the bank, and live better than most in the process.

But they are not the "rich" people we must concern ourselves with. Its the ones like M. Bloomberg who is planning to spend 50 million dollars of his on money to show that the NRA is not truthful about the problem with guns. I agree with him on that point. But I am scared to death of what is happening in this country, where the Supreme Court has given the super rich the green light to buy what they want politically and socially. No more back room deals, envelopes full of cash and super packs backed by people hiding in the shadows. Now its in you face, I got the cash and I will get what I want. Bloomberg is just the start, the Hunt brothers have even bigger plans as does several liberal billionaires with money to burn.

The big pictures is ALL the billionaires are interested in. They give you all the social issues you want, its like they are putting you to sleep so they can rape you. Smile, they have you just where the want you, and you are so blinded by all this conservative/liberal propaganda you can't even see or imagine the big picture.

Industry Expert Says StopRush Has Destroyed Limbaugh's Business For Good
WED APR 16, 2014 AT 07:55 PM PDT
by ProgLegs
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/04/16/1292...

Speaking yesterday on the Ed Schultz radio show, industry insider Holland Cooke credited a persistent online activist movement with completely destroying right wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh's business model by using the very free speech that El Rushbo claims gives him carte blanche to do what he does.

Cooke pins the blame for talk radio's struggles squarely on Limbaugh's shoulders and points to the right wing talk show host's 2012 attack on Sandra Fluke as the "shot heard round the world." Here are some excerpts from his comments:
The conversation really picked up on February 29, 2012, Leap Year Day which was Day 1 of this three-day Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke faux pas. And, if we were studying the history of talk radio, you stick a pin in the timeline there because at that moment, a very well organized and relentless advertiser boycott effort which remains underway today, rendered that business inviable.

Hundreds of blue-chip national advertisers basically have not only wandered away from Rush Limbaugh and some of the other righties, they’ve abandoned the format entirely. They are afraid to be heard on a news talk station because this man’s use of his free speech triggered the opposing viewpoint exercising THEIR right to free speech.

The boycotters are speaking and using the marketplace to say,“ENOUGH!”

...And we just got the first round of monthly radio ratings yesterday. Tomorrow we’re gonna get Boston, Detroit, Miami, San Diego.

But yesterday we got New York, and Los Angeles and San Francisco, and Chicago and Dallas and some of the other big markets. And it is stunning to say this when we think that Rush Limbaugh himself led this whole talk radio revolution back in 1990. But today Rush Limbaugh is on the Number 22 station in New York. He is on the number 37 station in Los Angeles. In New York, four of the stations that are beating his station are not even English language stations.

The Rush Limbaugh station in New York is getting beat by a station that plays classical music. In Los Angeles where you might expect it, there are 11 non-English speaking stations beating Rush Limbaugh. And guess what? In both markets, the station that he just left in January is now up slightly over where it was when he left.

...So the short answer is talk radio as we know it, the crazy uncle righty politically monologue-based I’m right you’re wrong genre is mathematically in trouble.
