It’s great to have the Maha Rushie back behind the golden EIB microphone after nearly two weeks off during Christmas and New Year’s. Yesterday’s show was a gem — of course, they all are — and here’s Rush’s take on Donaldus Magnus’ most recent swipe at the #fakenews media:
The next three months are laden with awards ceremonies. What’s Donald Trump done? He’s crashing it. Donald Trump is crashing awards season. His timing is perfect. His idea, if you ask me, is genius. Donald Trump has a world stage to bring attention to whatever he wants to bring attention to. And he’s decided, in the midst of awards season, to have the Fake News Awards. They were originally supposed to be given out this afternoon at 5 o’clock, but Trump says the winners will be announced on Wednesday, rather than today, because the interest and the importance of these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated. So Trump has the world to bring attention to what he’s going to bring attention to, and that is faux journalism. That is lying out of context, whatever you want to call it, fake news. Fighting the media endeared this president to millions of Americans who are appalled by journalism’s descent into blatant propaganda. Millions of Americans have tuned out and turned off because they no longer trust it and, worse, they get angered by it. It is obviously unfair. It’s obviously rigged. It’s not even news anymore. The media doesn’t do news. The media has one objective, and it is to advance the fortunes of the Democrat Party and the American left however they can do it.
Rush Limbaugh was hitting on all cylinders yesterday and absolutely nailed the left on the terrible miscarriage of justice that was Thursday’s San Francisco verdict. Here he is during hour 2:
So in San Francisco we have a War on Women, a different kind of War on Women — a felonious, illegal immigrant’s War on a Woman. An innocent woman is shot and killed. Her killer — an illegal alien who shot the gun has multiple felonies — is found not guilty by reason of a jury’s political insanity, and the left is good with it. The insanity in that courtroom was not the perp. The insanity is the jury.
And then a little later…
San Francisco and California are subsets of the parent organization, and the parent organization is the Democrat Party. So the subsets or subordinates of the parent organization must always be served. So why would a city or a state knowingly put their citizens in harm’s way? Because of the need for a large, frequently replenished, uneducated, low-skilled, illiterate, illegal, non-English-speaking underclass. The Democrat Party has decided that that pool of people represent their future. Becoming champions of the uneducated, low-skilled, illiterate, illegal, non-English-speaking underclass people is the future of the Democrat Party. Getting them registered to vote down the road is considered by the Democrat Party to be their quickest route to political victory, to deliver votes to Democrats.
From today’s Rush Limbaugh Show, hour 1:
Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Glenn Thrush, Garrison Keillor, Mark Halperin, Harvey Weinstein, three CNN editors, three NPR executives, two people at the New Republic are out of work, and Donald Trump isn’t. Donald Trump is still there, and the tax bill cleared the Senate or will when they have the vote. Al Franken is floundering and looks to be the fool he has always been. John Conyers is in the hospital because of stress. A woman of privilege, a white woman of privilege has told this poor black guy in the hospital to quit, to resign, to get out of there, that he is the problem. James Clyburn of the Congressional Black Caucasians is pointing out that all of Conyers’ accusers are white women. Hollywood is damn near a smoking ember. The entirety of the Drive-By Media teetering on the brink of ruin, and it is Trump who is delusional? It is Trump losing his mind?
From today’s Rush Limbaugh Show, hour 1:
Somebody lying about being something that they are not. All Trump is doing is pointing it out, and you can see this is not done. The left does not have their sacred cows attacked like this. And when it happens, they lose it. They go bananas. So what the reality is is that a day after all of this nonsense, it is being driven home to many people that Elizabeth Warren lied about her heritage to gain status in the world of the academy, which is obsessed with identity politics. That’s the political advantage. The political advantage is taking an event that happened, that constitutes — once again — phony baloney, plastic banana, good-time rock ‘n’ rollerism by Democrats and making it widely publicly known. And this is what Trump does. He simply attacks their sacred cows. He pierces political correctness. He refuses to accept the lies and the phony constructs that they create in order to protect themselves.
“It was as if the media thought that money just appeared in the hands of some fortunate souls by way of miracle . . . or some unspoken and undiscovered criminal activity. But never by work. It was the oddest of political prejudices that wealth didn’t come from work, but rather from something else, a something never really described, but always implied to be suspect.” — Tom Clancy, The Bear and the Dragon
Rush Limbaugh explained during hour 2 of yesterday’s show how spectacularly successful President Trump’s trip to Asia has been, and how the mainstream press hasn’t reported any of it because it doesn’t fit their narrative. This is something that deserves to be reported, for sure.
I know full well how easy it is get caught up in the media narrative, because it’s oppressive. It doesn’t stop. The media doesn’t show you anything positive. Look, Trump’s trip in China, Trump’s trip to Asia is a grand-slam home run. They’re not televising it. There’s not a single network that televised Trump’s arrival ceremony in China. There’s not a single network that televised all of the ChiCom children waving the American flags. There are more ChiCom children waving the American flag than we have NFL players waving the American flag. ChiCom kids are waving the American flag. They’re happy to see President Trump. President Trump, as I said yesterday, is representing the United States from a position of strength. The world needs it, the world celebrates it, the world wants it, and Trump is providing it.
“I find it interesting that the meanest life, the poorest existence, is attributed to God’s will, but as human beings become more affluent, as their living standard and style begin to ascend the material scale, God descends the scale of responsibility at a commensurate speed.” — excerpt from I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
Here’s a couple of gems from yesterday’s Rush Limbaugh show:
In the midst of all of this robust economic recovery action, Trump’s numbers are reported to be in the thirties. I’m telling you right now I don’t believe it. I don’t believe Trump’s numbers are in the thirties just like I don’t believe the Russians and Trump colluded to steal the election from Hillary, just like I don’t believe half, if not more, of what I saw reported in the news day in and day out. So in 2014, 60% of Americans said their dream of a great life was unachievable, but now 82% believe that it’s possible.
Do you think Donna Brazile is distancing herself from some anvils that might be falling on Hillary fairly soon? …[T]he Mueller investigation might have some anvils in there that are ready to drop on Hillary and…Donna Brazile is trying to clear herself out of the landing area of the anvils.
From the Rush Limbaugh Show today, hour 1, right off the bat:
There aren’t any black women that made the trek to Harvey Weinstein’s hotel suite; therefore, in addition to everything else this is, it’s racist. This illustrates and demonstrates the problem of African-American women being cast in Hollywood. Because if the casting couch is the route — and if no producer wants an African-American actress on the casting couch — then there is casting couch racism.
On Wednesday’s show, Rush Limbaugh offered the following explanation as to why so many Hollywood men are liberal, or at least give the appearance they are liberal:
How many of these guys in Hollywood actually are liberals? When the purpose of Hollywood is to get girls and then doing whatever you have to do and being whatever you have to be in order to get girls, if you think that you gotta be pro-choice and if you think you have to be supportive of every wacko feminist cause, and if that’s what it takes to succeed in Hollywood and to get girls, then that’s what you’ll do, whether you believe it or not. I think that explains a lot of it. I don’t know how much. It’s phoniness is the bottom line. But what it has led to is that the vast majority of the truly abusive anti-women behavior actually exists and takes place in liberalism, among people on the left who all have an immunity from it.
