    RUSH: No, no, the bottom line is that Flynn wants this guilty plea. He’s told a judge. He and his lawyers have told the judge. The judge has offered them an opportunity to go a different route here, and Flynn doesn’t want to go the different route. So, Flynn not wanting to go the different route is gonna be a very determinative factor here in the sentencing, which has yet to happen. The judge is telling Flynn that, you know, this is a very bad thing you did here. You lied to the FBI while you’re in the White House....

    RUSH: The judge’s ruling on Obamacare. I have to assume that got discussed here yesterday. (interruption) You don’t know? (interruption) Oh, that’s right. None of you were here for the guest host. (interruption) The guest host came from the igloo, yesterday. (interruption) Okay, that’s right. You know what I don’t get? (interruption) He did not discuss it? Okay. I have just been told that it was not discussed. This is so simple to me, and the fact that it’s so simple and yet what is so simple and obvious is being ignored, is all that you need to know about...

    RUSH: There was a big ballyhooed study that was released I think over the weekend. It was released by Oxford University Computational Propaganda Project, and it argued that fake accounts adds and tweets all clearly sought to benefit the Republican Party and specifically Donald Trump. It was the first we’ve ever heard of this. It’s late arriving in this whole godforsaken story, and they have this report that they’ve analyzed all kinds of things all over social media, and guess what we found at the Oxford University Computational Propaganda Project? We found Russians everywhere! We found Russian fake accounts, we...

    RUSH: Let me grab an audio sound bite or two because this one fits in here, sound bites one and two. Play one and two. This was last Saturday in the United Kingdom, in Great Britain over on the BBC, the title of the program, Dateline London. The host is a guy named Sean Lee. He’s talking to a former TIME Magazine London bureau chief, whose name is Dr. Jef McAllister, and they’re talking about the Russia investigation and President Trump. To set things up, here is the host, Sean Lee, asking about Americans support for President Trump. He can’t...

    RUSH: I was at the White House for a Christmas reception, and (chuckles) I got an email, “Rush, I thought they canceled the media party.” They did. “Well, then what were you doing there?” I’m not the media that was canceled. Anyway, I took some pictures. I didn’t have much free time. But I stole away from people, and I whipped out my iPhone XS Max — which has one of the greatest smartphone cameras made in the world today — and I snapped some pictures of the decorations. My first White House Christmas party of any was during the...
  • Is Disney’s $15 Minimum Wage Hike a Help or a Hoax?

    Did you know that the average family income for a minimum-wage worker is over $50K a year? How about that the vast majority of minimum wage workers are second, third and fourth earners in their families and not the primary earners as leftists often claim? In other words, a spouse or child is simply supplementing the income of the primary earner in most cases. Furthermore, did you know that two-thirds of minimum wage jobs are occupied by workers between 16 and 24 years of age who are first time inexperienced and unskilled labor? Additionally, has anyone ever told you that...

    Kim Jong Un, angered by the newest U.S. sanctions, is warning that North Korea's commitment to denuclearization could be imperiled and we could be headed for "exchanges of fire." Iran, warns Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, is testing ballistic missiles that are forbidden to them by the U.N. Security Council. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned that, within days, he will launch a military thrust against U.S.-backed Kurdish forces in northern Syria, regarding them as allies of the PKK terrorist organization inside Turkey. Vladimir Putin just flew two Tu-160 nuclear capable bombers to Venezuela. Ukraine claims Russia is amassing...

    Many media commentators are warning readers about a new Ohio bill because it could prevent women from obtaining abortions before they know they’re pregnant. But in the process of doing so, they’re making a pro-life message go viral: Abortion stops a beating heart.On Dec. 12, the Ohio Senate made national headlines for approving abortion legislation, known as the “heartbeat bill” or H.B. 258, which would ban the abortion of unborn babies with a detectable heartbeat. Republican Gov. John Kasich has promised to veto the bill – which resembles one he vetoed in 2016. But that didn’t keep the media, from...

    The erosion of what many Americans once believed were the foundations of our country continues apace. They include, but are not limited to, overspending and debt (personal and national), never-ending wars, uncontrolled borders leading to massive immigration with no time for or expectation of assimilation and political divisions that grow wider by the day. It's now the Boy Scouts of America's turn to join the parade. The organization, which began in 1910 to, according to its website, "...train youth in responsible citizenship, character development and self-reliance" so they become honest men, worthy of admiration and respect, is now in danger...

    Only an audacious and arrogant man accuses others of lying when he is guilty of the same. James Comey, the fired Director of the FBI, stood in front of the television cameras on Monday to accuse President Trump of “lying about the FBI, attacking the FBI, and attacking the rule of law in this country.” This from the man who was fired for abusing his authority and usurping the power of the attorney general in the infamous Hillary Clinton email scandal. As I wrote in my book, “The Russia Hoax,” “Comey’s lack of integrity and defiance of rules and principles...

    LEXINGTON, Va. -- Mark Rush could not name the last movie in the past 10 years that gave him a belly laugh -- or made him snort or chuckle or laugh out loud, at least for any extended period of time. "The last side-splitting movies I saw were 'Caddyshack' or 'Blazing Saddles,'" the politics and law professor at Washington and Lee College said. "That was way too long ago." Rush and I were talking over dinner at the Red Hen, a farm-to-table restaurant that made headlines earlier this year for its unfortunate decision to refuse service to White House spokeswoman...

    The first iron rule of American politics is: Follow the money. This explains, oh, about 80 percent of what goes on in Washington. Shortly after the latest "Chicken Little" climate change report was published last month, I noted on CNN that one reason so many hundreds of scientists are persuaded that the sky is falling is that they are paid handsomely to do so. I said, "In America and around the globe governments have created a multibillion dollar climate change industrial complex." And then I added: "A lot of people are getting really, really rich off of the climate change...

    The looming threat of a government shutdown reminds me of the joke about an unwanted door-to-door salesman who keeps threatening to leave. He’s still oblivious after being told repeatedly, “Come again when you can’t stay so long.” Most of us who loathe the hubris of ever-growing government breathe a sigh of relief whenever politicians and bureaucrats take a holiday. Yet, they proceed with the narrative that we are more terrified of a shutdown than say, allowing thousands of unvetted immigrants to storm our borders in violation of our immigration laws. By the way, if we demand that the caravans...

    When I talk to young people, I try to offer them what I was offered when I was their age but is rarely offered today: wisdom. I was given wisdom largely because I went to a religious school -- a yeshiva, a traditional Jewish school in which the long day (9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) was divided between studying religious subjects (in Hebrew) and secular subjects (in English). With the increasing secularization of society, less and less wisdom has been conveyed to young people. One particularly obvious example is most secular people, especially on the left, believe human beings are...
  • Trump impeachment countdown is on

    The impeachment countdown is on. Democrats are lurching inexorably toward trying to dump President Trump, even if they won’t admit it now. Conventional wisdom says that the Dems, who are about to take over the U.S. House, are proceeding cautiously, and will be reluctant to launch into impeachment proceedings. Nancy Pelosi is trying her best to restrain herself. Don’t believe it. Democrats would like nothing better than to oust Trump. If Robert Mueller provides them with the ammo, the party won’t be able to resist. Left-leaning voters are pressuring lawmakers to act, thinking about the months long torture that impeachment...

    Appearing on MSNBC Live With Katy Tur Monday afternoon to discuss illegal immigration, reporter Cal Perry launched into a rant claiming that anyone criticizing migrant parents for bringing their children on the dangerous journey to the United States was spewing “xenophobic nonsense.” He even claimed that the U.S. was responsible for violence in Latin America. While talking about the death of a 7-year-old Guatemalan girl, Jakelin Caal, in Border Patrol custody, Perry understandably sympathized: “So it’s a terrible decision as a parent. Do you go into the desert, like Jakelin did, and risk your child’s life, right? Or do you...
  • Having a second child does damage to parents’ mental health: study

    When it comes to raising kids, having more may not make you merrier. A new study from Australia found that having a second child worsens parents’ mental health. Researchers from the University of Melbourne combed through 16 years of data from the Household, Income and Labor Dynamics in Australia Survey. They found both parents showed improvements in mental health after having their first child. But a second child doubles parents’ time pressure, adding further stress to their lives and negatively affecting their mental health. Bianca Rodriguez, a marriage and family therapist, says the study’s findings are consistent with her professional...

    President Obama and President Trump were both right, Obama when he told us elections have consequences and Trump in his 2018 stump speech that a consequence of Democrat victories would be renewed attacks on the Second Amendment. New Jersey’s ban on high-capacity magazines has been upheld by a federal court, opening the door to door knock gun confiscation and making off-duty police officers subject to criminal prosecution. The inmates are officially running the asylum. The law, signed by Gov. Phil Murphy in June along with five other new gun laws, gave New Jersey gun owners who currently possess the magazines...

    There is a strange dichotomy taking place in society today. On the one hand, laws against marijuana are being eliminated. People who abuse pot are now able to feed their addiction with an overly generous supply of the drug. For example, in Arizona, where medical marijuana is legal, users can purchase up to 2.5 ounces every two weeks. This is enough to be stoned every day. Once you have a prescription, you can refill it for an entire year without going back to renew the prescription. It’s easy to get a prescription in most states that have legalized medical marijuana,...

    Here are a few short musings for my faithful readers as we approach the end of the year: The Democrats won the mid-term elections; they took back the House of Representatives. They’ll have the power to launch endless investigations, consider impeaching President Trump, and block his agenda whenever they want. With Republicans having a bigger Senate advantage, we’re guaranteed two years of partisan gridlock in Washington.With an increased U.S. Senate majority, President Trump will be able to appoint and confirm conservative judges to key court positions. If any other Supreme Court Justices leave or pass away, he’ll solidify the...
