    RUSH: And once again, ladies and gentlemen, President Trump was right when he forecast an economic recovery starting now. He was right about the shape. It would be a V-shaped recovery. He was right about when it would begin. He was right that it would take place in the first place. And because he’s been right again, the left cannot let this stand. The Democrats and the left cannot let this stand, so be ready for whatever they come up with to take this news off the news. JOHNNY DONOVAN: And now, from sunny South Florida, it’s Open Line Friday!...

    RUSH: There also, ladies and gentlemen, you know, one of the themes that I have been on for a long time, but Ive been intensely trying to drive home a point for the last two weeks, three weeks, and that is the utter failure of the Democrat Party to come through for its constituents. Youve heard me say this I dont know how many times. Maybe youre a little tired of hearing me say it. The Democrat Party has been promising utopia. And yet where is all this police brutality happening? In Democrat blue states. Its so bad that theyre...

I wanted to see the door open at the long way down at the end of the hall. I kept looking and the door didnt open. I said, Whats going on? I hope the door opens. I looked for her dad; I couldnt find her dad. I looked for her brother; I couldnt find her brother. I said, They gotta be with...
  • When Russiagate Conveniently Vanishes

    Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was at the red-hot center of the Robert Mueller probe into the phantom menace of Donald Trump's collusion with the Russians. He testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on June 3. You may not know that happened. ABC, CBS and NBC ignored it that night. PBS gave the story 55 seconds. NPR gave it four minutes, but those minutes sounded bizarre. Anchor Mary Louise Kelly said: "May I start with an observation? Does this seem a little out of left field? With everything going on in the country right now, senators are focused today...

    There is a coordinated movement to abandon in-person voting for mail-in ballots. Some on the left are taking advantage of the pandemic to force a solution for a problem that does not exist and create conditions ripe for vote fraud.  Democrats across the country are using COVID-19 as an excuse to send ballots to people who have not requested absentee ballots—both active and inactive voters on voting rolls that often have not been updated by removing relocated or deceased voters. New voting procedures pushed by Speaker Pelosi and some state leaders are clearly unnecessary from a public health perspective. If we...
  • Violent Rioting, as in the 1960s, Hurts the Most Disadvantaged

    "America is burning. But that's how forests grow." So spoke Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey. "Riots are an integral part of the country's march towards progress." So read a now-deleted tweet from the Democratic Committee of Fairfax County, Virginia, the affluent Washington suburb with a population of 1 million. "Please, show me where it says that protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful," said CNN's Chris Cuomo. He's apparently been too busy interviewing his brother, the governor of New York, to reread the First Amendment, which bars laws abridging "the right of the people peaceably to assemble." I take...
  • Riots Are Violence

    It's weird that this needs to be said, but here we are. Then again, the pundit who reprehensibly claims that destroying property "is not violence" risks nothing. She agitates for revolution from the safety of her apartment. Much the same, I suspect, most of those excusing the destruction of our cities -- either contending that businesses "have insurance" or peddling false choices about life being "more valuable than property" -- have never built a business themselves. Nor have I. Yet, I do know that having a business destroyed can be devastating, and "having insurance" won't make victims whole. My parents...

    Violence directed at cops is being ignored, and innocent victims aren't having their stories told when it won't fit the media's narrative. It has to end. Two terrible things just happened only days apart. In Oakland, during anti-police protests outside of a federal courthouse, federal protective service officer Dave Patrick Underwood was killed in a drive-by shooting that was targeted at the police. Another officer was shot but survived.The killing of Underwood, a black American, has only appeared in a few national outlets—one of which was the Wall Street Journal. Cable news outlets CNN and MSNBC, meanwhile, appear to have...

    Jeanine Cummins’ bestselling novel 'American Dirt' has elicited protests over the author's lack of Latinx credentials, but the bigger problem is that the book is plodding moralistic melodrama. In Jeanine Cummins’ novel American Dirt, main character Lydia Pérez is a middle class, college-educated bookstore owner in Acapulco. She has a nine-year-old son with her husband Sebastián who is an investigative reporter at the local newspaper. She is bored by her clientele, who mostly consist of tourists and buyers of knickknacks, until one day a man with huge soul and an exquisite taste that nearly matches her own enters her shop...

    Within hours of publishing a column by a U.S. senator conveying an opinion held by a majority of Americans, The New York Times staff erupted in an outrage, calling their employers decision to print a differing opinion, surreal and horrifying. The editorial page editor James Bennet at first defended running counter viewpoints by those in policy positions, but by Thursday, the New York Times fully relented, issuing an apology and blaming a rushed editorial process for its decision to run the op-ed at all. The op-ed, written by Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., called on the federal government to send in...

    The white privilege on display here is on the left, where radical whites play at revolution, often to the detriment of poor minorities. These rioters aren’t Martin Luther King Jr. or even Malcolm X. They are Alex and his droogs from “A Clockwork Orange” out for a night on the town, albeit with less style and a duller patois. Violence is the point.Protests responding to the cruel police killing of George Floyd have been turned into nationwide riots and looting. This is not about Floyd anymore. His killing was universally condemned, the cops involved were fired, and homicide charges have...

    All decent Americans stand against racism. But if we’re to live as brothers, we must stop indicting all those who share a skin tone for the sins of others. I was nowhere near the intersection of Chicago Avenue and 38th Street when George Floyd tragically lost his life. I wasn’t in Minnesota. I was more than 500 miles away. With the exception of the officers at that heartbreaking scene, there are more than 329 million additional Americans who had no part in that terrible evening.So why are so many people acting as if it were their knee, not Derek Chauvin’s,...

    Let's take a look at how minorities are treated in nations where your religion permeates. Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center Two themes permeate much of the discourse surrounding ongoing riots: that racism in America, particularly against blacks, is systemic; and that any show of force against the protestersmany of whom are simply criminals, looters, and thugs out to capitalize on a tragedyis more proof of Americas ingrained racism and intolerance. Wonderfully encapsulating these two points is Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). In a recent interview, she asserted that we are living in a country...

    Once again, progressives maliciously elevate nationwide violence and anarchy. Protesters throwing pieces of paving during and metal tubes at riot police during clashes at Bankova str, Kiev, Ukraine. December 1, 2013 Massachusetts Democratic Attorney General Maura Healey hailed the acts of arson occurring across the country as some sort of symbol of regeneration. In a speech she delivered to the Boston Chamber of Commerce on June 2nd, Healy said, "Yes, America is burning, but that's how forests grow." She later tweeted that we must seize the opportunity we have right now to build anew in ways that rid us of...

    The mainstream media are often far from a trustworthy guardian of the public's well-being. The Yellow Press published in 1898 the largely discredited proposition that Spain sabotaged and sank the USS Maine, an accusation that incited the Spanish-American War. Recent events show that fake news, not from "Russian troll farms," but rather from domestic media sources and also the Democratic Party's nominee for president, is being used to influence the 2020 presidential election. Here is a list of the misrepresentations, if not flat-out lies, that the media and the Democratic Party's nominee have told about Donald Trump during the past...

    Last Friday, May 29, was the 567th anniversary of the Islamic conquest of Constantinople, one of ancient Christianity's greatest capitals that for the previous seven centuries had, as Europe's easternmost bulwark, withstood Islam. Lesser known is what immediately transpired which Turkey is immensely proud of on the taking of "New Rome," as described in what follows (note: all quotes were derived from contemporary sources, mostly eyewitnesses). Once inside the city on that fateful May 29, the "enraged Turkish soldiers ... gave no quarter," wrote an eyewitness: When they had massacred and there was no longer any resistance, they...

    If youre going to champion a cause, have the good grace or basic intelligence to push one that is not so easily undermined by reality... like systemic racism. At last check, were more than 50 years removed from colored-only anything; television commercials would have us believe that inter-racial couples are the rule today; and, diversity/inclusion is a lucrative industry and thats on top of affirmative action. In short, there has never been a better time to be black in America. Until a few months ago, there was never a better time to be black and employed in America. Then came...

    The media has had a field day attacking President Trump for his walk across Lafayette Square to pay his respects to St. Johns Episcopal Church that was set afire by rioters. Certainly, as so many commentators noted, the rioters setting a fire at St. Johns crossed a line into territory that no sensible person could defend. Throughout its history, St. Johns has been considered a national church because sitting presidents since the 19th century have walked across that park to attend church at St. Johns. Numerous ceremonial events have taken place in that sanctuary where a pew was reserved for...

    Why are the cities burning? African Americans have been a part of our history since our nations founding -- they fought for independence. They are found on the Supreme Court, in military leadership, as prominent mayors, Members of Congress, academics, authors, cabinet secretaries, ambassadors, police chiefs, surgeons, business owners, entertainers, athletes, astronauts, and CEOs. A 75% white America even voted twice to choose an African American leader. If so much progress has been made, why are the nations cities -- some led by African American mayors, with a diverse police force often led by non-white police chiefs -- burning? Could...

    Three years ago, the inauguration of the forty-fifth president of the United States was commemorated by a concert featuring Lee Greenwood and Jon Voight, a parade, three official inaugural balls, massive womens marches, the writing of a fishy e-mail to herself by outgoing National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and the January 17 publication of David Horowitzs Big Agenda: President Trumps Plan to Save America. The book, a comprehensive account and vigorous vindication of Trumps platform, became a New York Times bestseller. Now, with the 2020 elections approaching, Horowitz has published a follow-up book entitled Blitz: Trump Will Smash the Left...
