RUSH: This is Drudge’s lead item today. ‘The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is blocking certain websites from the federal agency’s computers, including halting access by staffers to any Internet pages that contain a ‘controversial opinion,’ according to an internal email obtained by CBS News. The email was sent to all TSA employees from the Office of Information Technology on Friday afternoon. It states that as of July 1, TSA employees will no longer be allowed to access five categories of websites that have been deemed ‘inappropriate for government access.” Now, here are the five, and you tell me what big one is missing. ‘Chat and messaging.’ Can’t go there. ‘Controversial opinion websites.’ Can’t go there. ‘Criminal activity websites.’ Can’t go there, which would mean the White House. ‘Extreme violence, including cartoon violence and gruesome content.’ You can’t go there. And ‘gaming.’

TSA employees cannot visit gaming sites, sites that promote extreme violence or criminal activity, which is… (chuckles) On certain days they can’t access the WhiteHouse.gov website. Controversial opinion? None of these things are defined, by the way. What big category is not blocked? (interruption) Porn sites, exactly right! The chief broadcast engineer Mike Maimone comes up with the answer in a split second. Pornographic sites are not mentioned as being banned in the TSA memo. ‘The email does not specify how the TSA will determine if a website expresses a ‘controversial opinion.’ There is also no explanation as to why controversial opinions are being blocked, although the email stated that some of the restricted websites violate the Employee Responsibilities and Conduct policy.’ CBS News called ’em, asked for comment. They didn’t get it.

Now, let’s review some things that the leader of this regime, ‘Barack Hussein Obama! Mmm! Mmm! Mmm!’ has said. ‘The Transportation Security Administration is blocking certain websites from the agency’s computers including halting access by staffers to any Internet pages that contain a controversial opinion.’ Here’s Obama’s Michigan graduation commencement speech this spring. ‘Still, if you’re someone who only reads the editorial page of the New York Times, try glancing at the page of the Wall Street Journal once in a while. If you are a fan of Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh, try reading a few columns on the Huffington Post website. It may make your blood boil, your mind may not often be changed, but the practice of listening to opposing views is essential for effective citizenship.’

So the leader of the regime is urging college students, graduates to visit all kinds of controversial opinion sites, and yet the Transportation Security Administration is prohibiting any of its employees from visiting any sites where there are controversial opinions. Here’s Obama’s Kalamazoo high school graduation commencement speech: ‘And I hope that wherever you go, you won’t narrow the broad intellectual and social exposure you’ve had here at Kalamazoo Central. Instead, seek to expand the exposure you’ve had here at Kalamazoo Central. Don’t just hang out with people who look like you or go to the same church you do or share your political views. Broaden your circle to include people with different backgrounds and life experiences, because that’s how you’ll end up learning what it’s like to walk in somebody else’s shoes.’

So Obama’s out telling young skulls full of mush at any institution of higher learning he can find ‘Expose yourselves to all kinds of ideas,’ but his own employees at TSR are not permitted to access sites where there is controversial opinion. Now, if you are a leftist, if you’re a Democrat, if you’re a liberal, ‘controversial opinion’ is any opinion that differs from yours. That’s why I, El Rushbo, am deemed controversial. Yet the vast majority of people who listen to this program do not disagree with me. I am not controversial to the vast majority of people that listen to me. I am loved, adored, uh… Well, everybody wants to be me! But the left thinks I’m controversial. So I guess, given that Obama’s a Democrat, and most of the people at TSA would fall under that banner as well, any website which posts opinions that do not agree with leftists or liberal or Democrat opinions are off-limits now because they’re deemed to be controversial.


RUSH: Arlington, Virginia. This is Brad. Great to have you on the program. Welcome to the EIB Network.

CALLER: Hello, Rush. How are you?

RUSH: Very well. Thank you, sir.

CALLER: Just a quick comment, Rush. You were talking about TSA and what they’re not allowed to have access to. I was in a TSA office at Reagan airport last week, a couple weeks ago, I was in the video surveillance room, uniformed officers, banks all the way around, they’ve got big screen high-def TVs. The center TV was reserved for a World Cup match. At least they weren’t watching porn. And I’ve gone there in the past and I’ve seen Dr. Phil and Oprah on also during the afternoon.

RUSH: Wait a second, you’re talking here about Reagan National Airport in Washington. You went in there to the video surveillance room, uniformed officers watching the World Cup, Oprah, and Dr. Phil?

CALLER: I can’t tell you why I was there, but can I ask you a question, Rush?

RUSH: Were they watching The Doctors? Dr. Phil’s son is on that show.

CALLER: No, it was World Cup soccer, something really important. But can I ask you a quick question?

RUSH: Yeah, what’s the question?

CALLER: Has anybody that was watching porn at the SEC during the financial debacle and meltdown, have any of them lost their jobs that you can think of, can you name one?

RUSH: No. No, they have not.

CALLER: That’s what I thought. Have a good day, Rush.

RUSH: They have not. Thanks very much out there, Brad. Appreciate it. That’s Brad in Arlington. On the TSA website they spell out the civil rights that their employees have. ‘Any current or former TSA employee or applicant for employment who feel they have experienced unlawful discrimination, harassment, or retaliation in either their employment or the hiring process may contact the Office of Civil Rights and Liberties to initiate the EEO complaint process in an attempt to resolve their complaints. Current or former TSA employees or applicants may raise any of the legal bases listed below when initiating the EEO complaint process. Current or former TSA employees may complain about race, color, national origin, sex, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, parental status, genetic information, retaliation. An Equal Employment Opportunity specialist will assist any person who wishes to file a complaint to understand the EEO process and to explain how to file a complaint to initiate the process.’ And yet, despite all these freedoms and liberties spelled out on the TSA website, it seems that TSA employees are being denied their equal opportunity to view websites that other people can, except porn, they can watch porn, but they can’t go to gaming websites, they can’t go to controversial opinion websites. Very strange, ladies and gentlemen, very, very strange. Actually it’s not strange at all. This is what totalitarian, authoritarian thugs do. And this is Big Sis, Janet Napolitano acting on orders from the top at the regime. I’m not making these speeches up that Obama made. He was out there telling young skulls full of mush, (imitating Obama) ‘Oh, yeah, if you listen to Limbaugh, go read the Huffing and Puffington Post, expose yourself to all kinds of ideas. Except if you work for me, then you can’t. You can only expose yourself to my ideas.’
