A day to rededicate ourselves to fighting big government, whose presence means there is no true independence.

Rush Limbaugh Interviews James O’Keefe

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 11:30 am

This is a great interview of James O’Keefe by Rush Limbaugh, coming to us via Twitchy:

O’Keefe sent me an advance copy of his book Breakthrough, which you can purchase here. Yours truly gets a mention for some of the exclusive journalism I did on O’Keefe. I’m still making my way through it, but so far it is very enjoyable.

P.S. The stalkers are still after O’Keefe — the same people who tried to hurt me and my family (and miserably failed). We’re still here, while the cockroaches hide in the shadows. As long as the light keeps shining, they will remain in that crack between the refrigerator and the cabinets, only to be ground underfoot if they dare to emerge. So keep the light shining. Watch the video and read the book. Keep the cockroaches hiding.

Memo: Valerie Jarrett Is Awesome (Need Examples)

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 10:58 am


A soon-to-be-released book by Mark Leibovich reveals in excruciating detail the White House’s efforts to defend longtime Obama friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett in the run-up to a New York Times profile that ran in September 2012.

Leibovich, himself a reporter for the New York Times, got ahold of a White House memo titled “The Magic of Valerie” that included 33 talking points circulated throughout the administration.

Some of the Jarrett talking points are listed:

The magic of Valerie is her intellect and her heart

She is an incredibly kind, caring and thoughtful person with a unique ability to pinpoint the voiceless and shine a light on them and the issues they and the President care about with the ultimate goal of making a difference in people’s lives.

Valerie is the perfect combination of smart, savvy and innovative.

They save the best for the end:

Valerie is someone here who other people inside the building know they can trust. (need examples.)

Remember: your hard-earned taxpayer dollars went towards the creation of this memo.

I sure hope they found some examples.
