Heroic Rush Limbaugh Gets Deserved Honor

Heroic Rush Limbaugh Gets Deserved Honor — Rush Limbaugh, an American treasure, announced on his Feb. 3 radio show that he has advanced stage four lung cancer. The next day he was invited by President Trump to sit in a place of honor at the State of Union address. To his surprise he was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom, our highest civilian honor, then and there.

He deserved it. He has been a defender of truth and freedom for three decades and his withstood all manner of lies, calumny and hate.

He has been called a racist. He has been on the air three hours a day five days a week for 30 years and we have listened to him for much of that time. He has never said anything remotely implying that those of one particular skin color were somehow inferior to another or deserve less civil liberty. Those levying the charge actually had to make up quotes to get traction, and the false defenders of justice in our media conspired with them.

He was called a misogynist. Why? Because he was one of the few that had the guts to call out on the carpet a 30-year-old activist who demanded the Catholic Church pay for her birth control. And because he calls bitter, hate-filled bullies who happen to be female demanding unjust privilege regardless of suffering caused to others “nazis”, a perfect allusion few others were willing to dare to make.

All the while real, misogyny was laughed at or ignored by the same crowd condemning Rush.

Rush was even accused by one president of being a cause of terrorism, a lie that would make Joseph Goebbels nod in approval.

But Rush has persevered and thrived. He is fighting his disease. He is expected to return to the air tomorrow and can be heard locally noon to 3 on WPHT 1210 AM.

If you have never heard him, check him out. He really does have “talent on loan from God.” He is a decent guy and not what the progressive establishment claims he is.

Je Suis Rush Limbaugh

Californian John Adams, who Ed Driscoll of PJMedia.com calls the most famous and important classical composer in the world, premiered his new work Scheherazade.2, March 26, at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in the heart of hip Manhattan. Je Suis Rush Limbaugh

Adams introduced his work saying he was motivated by an exhibition he saw in Paris concerning the legendary Islamic queen Scheherazade. If you don’t know the story, it concerns  an Islamic Persian king who upon marrying a new wife would behead the old one. He had gone through a thousand women by the time he got to Scheherazade.

Scheherazade, of  course, had a plan. Before her beheading, she asked to bid farewell to her sister.  The king consented and during her farewell she told the sister a story which the king overheard. She stopped in the middle as dawn was breaking and the king asked her to continue. She said should couldn’t as it was time for her beheading. The king postponed the execution for a day so she could finish it for him. She did the next night but started another which again stopped in the middle before dawn. So the king again postponed things and this went on for 1,001 nights and become the inspiration for Bugs Bunny cartoons and Walt Disney movies.

Anyway by the time the stories were finished, the king had fallen in love with Scheherazade and she lived happily ever after with a serial killer.

Adams said that after seeing the exhibit he read One Thousand and One Arabian Nights and was appalled by “casual brutality toward women” it depicted. During this time, he also began reading of the treatment of women in various third-world Islamic-influenced places such as Egypt and Afghanistan.

So he explained this to his audience at his work’s premier, and then for some bizarre reason felt obliged to add regarding the oppression of women: “find it on Rush Limbaugh.”

This sanctimonious twit compared Rush Limbaugh to people who kill girls because they had been raped and women because they had affairs.

There is nothing wrong with disagreeing with Limbaugh. There is nothing wrong with calling Rush a blowhard.  But bearing false witness is a big wrong and that’s what Adams did.

We seriously doubt that the has every listened to Limbaugh live and in any sort of context but is merely parroting the conventional wisdom of the his insular crowd.

What’s even sicker is the reaction of his crowd which gave a long round of applause to the slander.

In 2009, Limbaugh was part of a group that was attempting to buy the St. Louis Rams football team. The old media reported that he said on his radio show that James Earl Ray deserved a medal for the murder of Martin Luther King Jr. and that slavery was beneficial. The quotes were fabricated but still placed in his Wikipedia biography as fact. Those who know of the scrutiny Limbaugh faces  for every word he utters — which one would reasonably think is everyone in professional journalism — would reject the quotes out of hand. Yet they were reported as true and hence ended his chance at becoming a team owner.

All decent people have a responsibility to defend those being slandered not just if but especially if they disagree with them. Further, all intelligent people should be suspicious of those who use slander to further a political cause.

What Adams and his crowd did was shameful.

For what it’s worth,  Wiki, in the latest editing of Rush’s bio, does not even mention the Rams incident.

For those interested in a first-hand take, Rush can be heard in the Philadelphia area from noon to 3 p.m. on WPHT 1210 AM or on the web here.

Below is Adams introduction to  Scheherazade.2

Rush Move To FM Reported

Rush Limbaugh is moving back to FM in Philly where he lived through most of the ’90s  if reports are accurate

It has been confirmed that Premiere Media, which syndicates Rush, will be pulling him off WPHT at 1210AM, which carried him since 1999 when he left WWDB on 96.5 FM, which is now the hip-hop station WRDW.
The reports say that Rush will be moving to 106.9 FM, which had been the local Family Radio station, a network that has fallen on hard times since its owner predicted that the world would end last May 21, and has since been acquired by Merlin Media.
A move to FM means no more annoying static from cell towers while motoring and no more pre-emption from Phillies games.
Michael Smerconish is slated to replace Rush on WPHT, which is a bit of demotion as he will no longer be the station’s evening drive-time guy. 
The reports say that 106.9 will also be carrying former WPHT stars Glen Beck and Sean Hannity.
It sounds like the end of WPHT as we know it.
I think Rush feels fine.

New York Times Finally Agrees Rush Is Right

New York Times Finally Agrees Rush Is Right — Sunday’s, March 18, The New York Times Magazine carried the article “Why Some Countries Go Bust” by Adam Davidson which concluded that societies only become rich when the residents get strong property rights.

It was almost as though Davidson was channelling Rush Limbaugh’s The True Story of Thanksgiving that Limbaugh tells annually.
Maybe there is hope.

Bristol Wants To Know When O Will Call Her

Bristol Wants To Know — Bristol Palin is asking when Obama is going to call her out of solidarity and support as he did Sandra Fluke.

She wrote on her blog:

Dear President Obama,

You don’t know my telephone number, but I hope your staff is busy trying to find it. Ever since you called Sandra Fluke after Rush Limbaugh called her a slut, I figured I might be next.  You explained to reporters you called her because you were thinking of your two daughters, Malia and Sasha.  After all, you didn’t want them to think it was okay for men to treat them that way:
“One of the things I want them to do as they get older is engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them on,” you said.  “I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way. And I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re being good citizens.”
And I totally agree your kids should be able to speak their minds and engage the culture.  I look forward to seeing what good things Malia and Sasha end up doing with their lives.
But here’s why I’m a little surprised my phone hasn’t rung.  Your $1,000,000 donor Bill Maher has said reprehensible things about my family.  He’s made fun of my brother because of his Down’s Syndrome. He’s said I was “f—-d so hard a baby fell out.”  (In a classy move, he did this while his producers put up the cover of my book, which tells about the forgiveness and redemption I’ve found in God after my past – very public — mistakes.)
If Maher talked about Malia and Sasha that way, you’d return his dirty money and the Secret Service would probably have to restrain you.
She has some other things to say and they can be found here.

Rush Limbaugh, Sandra Fluke And True Misogyny

Rush Limbaugh, Sandra Fluke And True Misogyny — Sandra Fluke is a 30-year-old activist who testified before Congress that the Catholic Church should be made to pay for the birth control of the women of Georgetown — which believe it or not is a Catholic school. She said this commodity costs the poor women of Georgetown $1,000 a year.

Talk show host Rush Limbaugh has been innocently wondering what kind of a woman would need $1,000 a year for birth control.
This has outraged — the word should probably be all caps but for aesthetic reasons I’ll leave it lower case — the usual suspects who have demanded in their tolerant open-minded fashion that Limbaugh be silenced forever.
Now ladies, before you start throwing around words like “misogyny” think real hard about this: 
Larry Flynt and Al Goldstein are pornographers who have influenced our society far greater than most can imagine. Their publications have featured the vilest and most degrading images of the female sex. They have horribly abused the women in their personal lives, which in Flynt’s case includes his daughter.
Whose side would they take in this debate? Limbaugh’s or Ms. Fluke’s?
Whose side would Bill “Better Put Some Ice On That” Clinton take? 
Do you really want to be on the same side with this type of men?

Defend Rush, Will The President?

Will The President Defend Rush? — President Obama, Wednesday, gave a wonderful speech at a memorial to the victims of the Tucson shooting held at the University of Arizona in the city.

He went off script to add the words “it did not ” for emphasis to a paragraph in which he baldly stated that heated political discourse was not responsible for the actions of the murderer.

His political allies among the dying dinosaurs of the once-dominant media have been attempting to convince Americans that a communist-praising, flag-burning, skull-worshiping, mentally unstable Christian-hater had been somehow inspired by prominent Republicans.

The President’s command for them to chill was, as one counts, his first attempt to impose national unity as our nation’s leader.

So sincere kudos but for him to succeed in his desire for “civil and honest public discourse” he must not stop with that one phrase uttered on one day. He must speak out in defense of all Americans — even his political adversaries — when they are on the receiving end of hate and lies.

When the Tea Party Movement is accused of racism, he must say they are not racists since they are not. When the Pro-Life movement is accused of being misogynist bullies, he must say they are not since they are not.

When a scary effigy of Sarah Palin is hanged high  from a window and then given wide publicity, his voice must be the loudest in saying take it down. When Rush Limbaugh is falsely accused of uttering vile, bigoted words, let the President be the first to come to his defense.

That he disagrees with Sarah and Rush would only make him look bigger and he might start getting the “civil and honest public discourse” that he claims to want.

Will The President Defend Rush?

Wittgenstein, Hitler And Rush

Ludwig Wittgenstein is considered one of history’s great philosophers. He was born in Austria on April 26,1889, six days after another influential Austrian, who is right now ranked third on the list of history’s top murderers behind Mao and Stalin.

Well, Wittgenstein went to school at Realschule in Linz which had a student population of 300 pupils, and one of his classmates was Adolph Hitler.

It has now been reveled that talk-show giant Rush Limbaugh and Pastor Terry Jones of maybe-I-will-maybe-I-won’t burn the Koran fame were classmates at Cape Central High School in Cape Girardeau, Mo.

Some appear to want to make an issue of this. Rush says he barely remembers the guy and wonders why people can’t accept that. He noted these same people easily accepted claims by one prominent person that he  spent 20 years in a church without being able to recall what his own minister had been preaching.

Rev. Al Threatens To Sue Rush

The Rev. Al Sharpton has threaten to sue commentator Rush Limbaugh for this Oct. 16 piece in the Wall Street Journal in which Rush defended himself regarding the false, racially hateful statements attributed to him that received wide dissemination.

Sharpton takes issue with Rush’s statement that he  “played a leading role in the 1991 Crown Heights riot (he called neighborhood Jews “diamond merchants”) and 1995 Freddie’s Fashion Mart riot.”

Good luck with that Al, LOL.

Since you appear to be a fan of the Wikimedia Foundation, which appears to be the source of the false quotes  used to smear Rush, here’s what Wikipedia says about you, Crown Heights and Freddie’s Fashion Mart.

But unlike the Limbaugh quotes, I don’t think it would hard connecting the things attributed to you to the actual events.
