    You may have noticed that the media likes to run critical stories about Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — sometimes without doing much checking first. As the Walker for president talk gains steam, you can expect to see more media attempts to break him in. That’s to be expected. But for now, that might be less important than the media he does have in his corner. Consider how rapid Walker’s rise has been. As late as November, he usually polled in the single digits. Public Policy Polling had Walker at 5 percent last March, compared to 25 percent in its latest...

Rush did say that the ban was on specific ammunition, but that people should not be fooled.  They want to go after all ammunition, and they have to start someplace. Rush is not a "gun guy"; but he is a far sighted political thinker, and he can see the...

If a spending bill is not passed by Feb. 28, the agency's funding will run out. ...

    There are plenty of people listening to talk radio. But over the past three years, it has become increasingly difficult to make money off it. Many national advertisers have fled from such stations in recent years, seeking to avoid associating their brands with potentially controversial programming. Radio executives said the erosion of ad dollars from talk stations was driven in part by a series of organized social-media campaigns by liberal activists in early 2012 that scared away advertisers.

    RUSH: I allowed one interruption from what I said the agenda for this hour was going to be, because you have to hear this. You just have to hear this. This afternoon in Washington on the Senate floor. You've heard, by the way -- I don't remember who said it, but -- it's been said in recent days that if women were running this show, none of this would have happened. There wouldn't have been a shutdown. I think the... (interruption) (SNIP) RUSH: I am reminded of Jimmy Carter, who said once that he learned everything about nuclear warfare from...

    RUSH: Oh, folks, I have got to tell you, I interviewed Dr. Thomas Sowell yesterday afternoon, after the program for the next issue of The Limbaugh Letter. Now, normally I would tease you with what he said as a means of hyping the purchase of subscriptions, but because I don't look at you people as pockets and dollar signs, I'm gonna tell you this. I started off by asking him, "Dr. Sowell, you and I and countless others have been chronicling the deterioration of American culture, our society, and our politics, in my case, for 25 years. We just keep...

    In mid-November, conservative news outlets posted multiple videos of Jonathan Gruber, an MIT health economist who worked on Romneycare and Obamacare, crediting the "stupidity" of American voters as one reason that the health law passed. The videos were not flattering for Gruber; Democrats have moved quickly to distance themselves. And, perhaps more consequentially, they have breathed new life into the Obamacare opposition effort. Today, the House Oversight Committee is holding a hearing with Gruber titled "Examining Obamacare Transparency Failures." ... Here'a a quick guide to who Jonathan Gruber is, why he's at the center of this controversy, and what it...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: This is really fascinating what's being attempted here in St. Louis and in Ferguson. It's not by any means the first time, but this is the most brazen that I can recall. We have an event that happened. We've had hours, days, weeks of evidence and testimony. It's been corroborated. The liars were discovered and thrown out. We know what happened. Yet that wasn't the desired result, and so that result doesn't count and it's being rebuilt into a new problem, and the problem in St. Louis is the cops. The problem in Ferguson is the police....

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Yesterday during the discussion of the aftermath in Ferguson, Missouri, and what I characterized as power, not truth, taking place. The truth is a variable. The truth is definable based on who has the power to do that. They didn't get what they wanted in Ferguson, so now they're trying to -- Rich Lowry had a great line in his column today. I think it was in the New York Post. It was about the aftermath of Ferguson, and it was about the meeting at the White House with Sharpton and Obama and Eric Holder. And Lowry...

    I wish there were a way to address the Ferguson controversy without generating further controversy. But that's not an easy task. I have believed for some time that the Obama administration has fanned the flames of racial tension in this country rather than attempt to extinguish them, despite its claims to the contrary. President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, in my view, have been the main culprits, which is exceedingly unfortunate, considering the opportunity their historic roles present for making great strides toward racial harmony. The question is: Do these gentlemen truly want to promote racial harmony? If...

"Leading US CEOs, angered by the [Regime]'s challenge to certain 'workplace wellness' programs, are threatening to side with anti-Obamacare forces unless the government backs off... Major US corporations have broadly supported President Barack Obama's healthcare reform despite concerns over several of its elements, largely because it included provisions encouraging the wellness programs.

    RUSH: There's only one man in America who can say anything about race and not get any blowback. There is only one man who can opine in a way contrary to the civil rights coalition version of events and not get any blowback. I'm not talking about Sharpton or Jackson. They get blowback from opponents and so forth. I'm not talking about them. There's one person not involved in the civil rights movement, not involved in the race base, there's only one man in America who can react to this and say whatever he wants to say publicly, not on...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: The situation in Ferguson, Missouri, is, I think, a great illustration of exactly where we are in this country in our politics on practically everything. Over the weekend I did a lot of thinking about where we are and the struggles that we have, the arguments that we have, the ability we have to try to turn things around in the country, and every day I'm reminded how insurmountable the task seems to be. Because something has happened. We all know this. I've been struggling with ways to actually verbalize it. I'm not gonna say anything here...
