So much for this being a mere snub or breach of protocol. If left-wing radio host Thom Hartmann had his way, House Speaker John Boehner would be in shackles and awaiting trial for inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before Congress without first clearing the invitation with the Obama White House.

Citing the Constitution to justify his claim, Hartmann said on his show Thursday that Boehner may be guilty of treason or sedition for going around Obama, who reportedly detests Netanyahu (and vice versa) and would much rather converse with YouTube class clowns who bathe in milk and cereal.

One of conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh's most important assets -- a great memory.

While telling his listeners yesterday that he didn't waste time watching the laundry list of alleged accomplishments and proposals that seldom get enacted, aka the State of the Union speech, he did catch an excerpt afterward that conveyed a sense of deja vu.

This time, Rush Limbaugh also speaks for plenty of liberals, though few could ever bring themselves to admit it.

El Rushbo could hardly contain his indignation on his radio show yesterday in response to the bizarre spectacle of Secretary of State John Kerry sheepishly trying to compensate for the lack of a high-profile American presence at last weekend's unity march in France by bringing folky pop singer James Taylor to serenade the French with "You've Got a Friend." Life imitates The Onion indeed.

Atlanta-area conservative talk show host Michael Graham got in a good dig at CNN via Twitter this morning. Take a look.

Plenty of speculation out there as to why President Sharpton, uh, Obama didn't go to the massive unity rally in Paris on Sunday that drew leaders from dozens of other nations. The take on this from America's Real Anchorman, aka Rush Limbaugh, comes closest to plausibility.

On his radio show yesterday, Limbaugh cited two specific reasons why Obama passed on a golden opportunity to demonstrate that he's capable of genuine leadership and empathy.

On Saturday, in a post titled "Political Correctness Kills in Paris, Terrifies Media," Jeffrey Lord at NewsBusters cited how the New York Times, in covering the Charlie Hebdo massacre, deliberately changed a story subject's quote from what it originally reported.

This post will show how the message massagers at the Times subsequently went another step further, attempting to convince readers that the subject's statement quoted elsewhere isn't what she said.

Context is all, especially in media, unless you're a liberal intent on smearing the most prominent voice in radio who also happens to be conservative. At that point, context becomes an inconvenience quickly to be jettisoned.

Two days before Christmas, Rush Limbaugh was talking about the leaked Sony emails when he said something that proceeded to make news during the traditionally slow news drought of the holidays.

Conservative radio host and widely-read author Hugh Hewitt ended 2014 with a bang. BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith finished it with a whimper, thanks to Hewitt. When the two spoke yesterday, it brightened New Year's Eve for many a listener.

Smith appeared on Hewitt's program to discuss BuzzFeed's coverage and what to expect in the coming year when the subject of anti-police protests arose (audio) --

To anyone unfamiliar with the force of nature that is Mark Levin, his withering denunciation of President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, and aspiring despot Al Sharpton on his radio show earlier this week could serve as a fitting introduction.

Levin could barely contain his outrage against the trio he accused of having "blood on their hands" for the unprovoked murders of two New York City police officers as retaliation for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner in their confrontations with police (audio) --

Yeah, it's a stretch -- but not by much.

Incorrigible thought criminal Rush Limbaugh wondered aloud on his radio show yesterday whether President Obama will fasten onto the latest left-wing protest fad, the raising of one's arms aloft while chanting "Hands up, don't shoot!," preferably in proximity to heavily-armed police.

Over the last decade, liberals have become implacably convinced that harsh interrogation of captured jihadists who planned the slaughter of thousands of innocents on 9/11, and who sought to kill far more if they could acquire the means, constituted "torture."

On his radio show today, Rush Limbaugh performed an invaluable public service by citing better examples of torture that never seem to bother left wingers, despite their vocal piety on the subject (audio) --

Radio host extraordinaire Rush Limbaugh has turned his attention toward one of the least noticed but arguably most relevant circumstances involving the death of Eric Garner after his arrest in July by New York City police.

A Staten Island grand jury earlier this week decided against indicting the police officer alleged to have used a chokehold on Garner when he was arrested, a procedure banned by the city's police but reportedly allowed by state law. The grand jury's decision, coming fast on the heels of a similar conclusion by a grand jury convened after the shooting death of an 18-year-old black male by a white police officer last August in Ferguson, Mo., further exacerbated racial tensions in New York City and across the nation.
