Words of Wisdom from General Powell

RUSH: You know what’s funny to watch? What’s funny to watch is the Drive-Bys trying to portray Colin Powell and his hacked emails as devastating to Trump. It’s… Folks, this is hilarious! They’re doing everything they can to ignore the negative things Colin Powell said about — and, by the way, this is gonna change the day for Colin Powell. Colin Powell is not thought to speak this way. People don’t think that Colin Powell even thinks this way. Colin Powell is not a “partisan.” He doesn’t say...


What You Need to Know to Understand All This Bannon Business

RUSH: The Steve Bannon interview… I’ve been getting emails all day from people who want my take on this, so I’m gonna go ahead and get into this now. I got to tell you again up front, I don’t know the guy. I haven’t even… He’s been in a room twice when I have been with the president, but I’ve never been formally introduced even, and I’ve never spoken directly to him. So none of this is, to me, based on any personal knowledge I have of Bannon or the arrangement that Trump and Bannon have. All...


Iran Watches Us Deal with North Korea

RUSH: Snerdley and I were talking about the North Koreans and their test. There is going to be a sanctions vote tomorrow, and once again, ladies and gentlemen, we have been shafted by the Russians and the Chinese. The vote on sanctions is tomorrow, and Fox had a little breaking news story this morning saying that an arms embargo will not be added to UN resolutions. There will be no ban on where the NorComs can fly in the resolution. I mean this is really watered down stuff, to be voted on...


William Shatner’s Favorite Guest

RUSH: This is Michael in Jackson, Michigan. Welcome, sir. I’m glad you called. Hello. CALLER: Hello, sir. God bless you and yours. Thanks for being there, and please keep fighting the good versus evil fight, would you? RUSH: Thank you. Sir, I can’t do anything else. I think I’m genetically disposed to opposing all this stuff, so — CALLER: Yes, sir. RUSH: — I’m not going anywhere. CALLER: Yes, sir. Good. Great. I have a fun Open Line Friday story for you. RUSH: Okay, cool. CALLER: Yeah. I get...


PMSNBC Hosts Come Unhinged

RUSH: The people at MSNBC are unhinged. It seems like MSNBC both yesterday and today was playing my Today Show interview in toto: 11 minutes yesterday, 12 minutes today, which is an eternity in television. And the people at MSNBC are unhinged and upset that their network is running that interview and eating up their airtime. Chris Matthews, who has been concerned and complaining about the right ‘inciting violence,’ made a prediction this morning....


Columbus Day Under Assault

RUSH: Bonnie in Lehigh Valley Pennsylvania, welcome to the EIB Network. Great to have you, sir, hello. Ma’am! Sorry. CALLER: That’s okay, Rush. Today is Columbus Day. And I would like you to talk about Christopher Columbus. RUSH: Well, I have a stack of Christopher Columbus stuff here. CALLER: Oh, great. Great. RUSH: It’s not what you’re gonna want to hear. CALLER: Maybe. (chuckles) I think he was a great, courageous visionary. I think he’s a great role model for today’s youth. He was an...


The Path To October 8th: Timeline

RUSH: Here is the path, by the way, to October 8th. The Path to October 8th is the sequel to The Path to 9/11. The Path to October 8th — of course that’s when Kim Jong ll tests his little nuke. 1993: North Korea shocks the world by saying it will quit the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and then layered suspends its withdrawal. 1994: North Korea and the United States sign an agreement in Geneva, North Korea pledging to freeze and eventually dismantle its nuclear weapons program in exchange...


EIB Network Helps Julie Live Her Dream

RUSH: Julie in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, welcome to the EIB Network. Great to have you with us. CALLER: Hello. How are you? RUSH: Fine. Thank you. CALLER: I just wanted to tell you a funny story. I’ve listened to you since 2000, and in 2004 I decided to go back to college after being out of high school for ten years, much because of what I’ve heard on your show about how you can do anything. You should do anything; you should not be okay with mediocre, et cetera, et cetera. You are the only...


Are Liberals Truly Offended by Foley?

RUSH: I have to admit, my friends, I’m a little confused about certain aspects of the situation here involving Mark Foley and the page. Now, the school system, the public school system has since the late eighties been teaching us that kids are going to have sex, we can’t stop ’em, it’s not our business to stop ’em. I mean, we’ve gone so far as teaching them to use condoms with bananas, or in some cases peanuts, cucumbers, but peanuts, too. You have to give them all life possibilities out...


Jim Geraghty on “Voting to Kill”

RUSH: I’d like to welcome to the program Jim Geraghty from National Review Online. He has a blog called The Kerry Spot, TKS. It’s just a brilliant body of work. During the campaign of 2004 it was cited often by me — not stolen by me, but cited often by me — on this program. Jim has a book out called Voting to Kill. It’s been out since September 19th. He went out and interviewed a number of Americans about the issues on their minds as the midterm elections come up in November. Jim, welcome,...


Liberal Stalinists Don’t Believe in Freedom of the Press

RUSH: Rich in San Marcos, California. You’re next on the program. It’s great to have you with us. CALLER: Yeah, hi. RUSH: Hi. CALLER: About this thing about Broder [sic] and Fox, I find it kind of interesting in that, you know, they’re the ones who believe in freedom of the press, and when they have opposition they want to shut ’em down. Typical, but what if Fox went after those guys? RUSH: They are. Fox is beating them. That’s the thing. CALLER: Well, they’re beating them with ratings. I...


Clinton War Room Back in Action

RUSH: I think the first thing we need to do out there, folks — well, not we, but the Republican Party, needs to just simply say that Jim McGreevey is now the official face of the Republican Party and end all this criticism. That way when McGreevey goes on Oprah as Mark Foley probably will not, then, you know, it’ll sort of balance the scales out there. I’m also looking at a new merchandising opportunity here, folks. You remember back in the early days of this program when the left was...


Losing Your Temper Is Good for You!

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, do you remember post-Lewinsky, in the second term of Bill Clinton, that AP ran a series of stories — picked up by all of the other Drive-By Media — telling us that lying was good? ‘Little’ lies were helpful. They spared people’s feelings. ‘Everybody does it.’ It actually has redeeming social quality and value, if not done too much, but even then, you know, within reason, lying is actually a well-calculated way to get through life, causing yourself less pain and,...


Reviewing Obama’s Citizen of the World Speech in Berlin

RUSH: You know what I thought we would do, and it would be instructive. Do you remember Obama’s speech in Berlin in July 2008? Given that one of the things we’re talking about today is people’s frustration, people on the left — they’d vote for him again, make no mistake. But the Drive-Bys and a lot of people, they’re really wringing their hands over the fact that Obama gave a lukewarm, passionless, didn’t look like he really cared set of remarks about the beheading of James Foley, and then,...


If We Don’t Raise the Debt Ceiling, Will the Apocalypse Really Occur?

RUSH: “On Feb. 4, 2010, when the House of Representatives voted to increase the legal limit on the national debt by another $1.9 trillion (lifting the limit from $12.394 trillion to $14.294 trillion), not one Republican voted for the increase.” It’s amazing how this tracks. It’s like I just said: If you go back to 2006, not one Democrat voted to raise the debt limit in 2006. Republicans ran the show then. One year ago, not one Republican voted to raise the debt ceiling when they didn’t run...


The Fertility Gap: Democrats Aborting Their Kids

RUSH: I’ve gotta do this. I’ve gotta tell you about this. It’s in USA Today. It’s a USA Today story, and it is the most incredible attempt to advance the failure of liberal Democrat ideas on social welfare. Here’s the headline: “Fertility Gap Helps Explain Political Divide — House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, a Catholic mother of five from San Francisco, has fewer children in her district than any other member of Congress: 87,727. Rep. Chris Cannon, R-Utah, a Mormon father of eight,...


Trump Sticks It to CNN; Tells Jeff Zucker to Donate Debate Profits to Vets

RUSH: So the word is that Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are going to be speaking at an anti-Iran deal rally on the Washington mall today, and I think they’re gonna be speaking English. I’m not sure about it, but my best inside information is that Trump and Cruz are gonna be speaking English at the anti-Iran nuke deal rally, which the left will probably see as a hate crime. You know, I hope Trump doesn’t do what the Huckster did to Cruz. Did you see what happened to Cruz in Kentucky? Did you see...


Will Somebody Please Tell Me How We Compromise with Socialists?

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, let’s turn back the hands of time. Earlier this year you will recall during the continuing resolution debate, the funding of the budget, the raising of the debt limit, I was urging from behind the Golden EIB Microphone, John Boehner, the Republican leadership, to force Obama to cave, that we were the ones who held the position of strength coming off the 2010 midterm elections, which was a landslide shellacking. The Democrats lost 63 seats in the House. Well, it’s...


The Republican Party Embraces Irrelevance

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, there’s so much out there that seems on the surface to be inexplicable. The problem in this country, as a majority of people recognize, I mean, look at this poll here. Look at this. It is a poll from the Pew Research Center. The bottom line: 81% of the people in this country are dissatisfied. Eighty-one percent are dissatisfied. Do you think they’re dissatisfied with Ted Cruz? Do you think they’re dissatisfied with the Tea Party? Do you think they’re dissatisfied...


SI Writer: McNabb was Overrated and Philly Fans Knew It All Along!

RUSH: There is a story today, Actually, it was posted yesterday. Headline: ‘There’s No Better Place to be Sports Fan Right Now Than Philadelphia.’ I want to read a small excerpt, go to the break, and come back and delve into this in detail. It’s a good story about Philadelphia at SI, But buried in this article, which I hold here right here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers, buried in this article is this: ‘Passion like this takes strange forms. While the...
