In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Trump: Rush Limbaugh was a “legend”

This one is from Keith:

As most of you probably know, Rush Limbaugh died today of lung cancer at the age of 70.

Donald Trump called into Fox News to express his thoughts. Trump spoke to Harris Faulkner and Bill Hemmer.

“There aren’t too many legends around, but he is a legend,” Trump said.

“He had tremendous insight. He got it, he really got it,” the former president said. “Rush was irreplaceable.”

Trump also released a statement:

The great Rush Limbaugh has passed away to a better place, free from physical pain and hostility.

His honor, courage, strength, and loyalty will never be replaced. Rush was a patriot, a defender of Liberty, and someone who believed in all of the greatness our Country stands for. Rush was a friend to myself and millions of Americans—a guiding light with the ability to see the truth and paint vivid pictures over the airwaves. Melania and I express our deepest condolences to his wonderful wife, Kathryn, his family, and all of his dedicated fans. He will be missed greatly.

I spent many, many hours listening to and learning from Rush. There was simply no one like him on radio. None of the others were ever quite a good. And none as powerful. Rush could set the whole conversation for the rest of the day.

One thing Trump noted was that Rush prepared assiduously for his shows. The great make it look easy, but they work very hard. Trump is another one who works so much harder than others in his field, whether it’s business or politics, though may people don’t know it.

I was so sad when I heard the news today. Rush was a great man. There was a braggadocio but also a supreme humility to him, a respect for his listeners. And always, wisdom and fearlessness in the face of conventional wisdom and political correctness. And a sense of humor.

I will miss listening to him very much. And the country will miss him too, whether they know it or not.

Thank you, Rush.

  1. Keith, thanks for sharing your thoughts and feelings on Rush, genuine thoughts and feelings straight from your heart and spirit. Also thanks for sharing President Trump’s statement. It won’t get much distribution for reasons we are all familiar with. I am pleased that Foxnews’ Hemmer and Faulkner accommodated and provided President Trump the opportunity to express his feelings and thoughts about Rush. Rush is now in eternal peace and rest. God bless his soul.

  2. Yes, this is a very sad day. To many of us, his show was just a normal part of life, not to be missed. Rush really started conservative media and was always the best. Over time other right-leaning media has emerged to also enlarge and energize the conservative base. Thank you for being one of those voices.

  3. My husband and I started listening to Rush in 1989 while motorhome traveling the United States for nine months. We started each weekday morning listening to Willie Nelson and his rendition of On the Road Again followed by Rush. All these years later I still listened to him most mornings. He will truly be missed and leaves a huge void in the lives of his listeners.

  4. Well said KK. I too followed Rush on radio since the 80s. He was always polite to callers, and every day you learned something new. He had a great sense of humor, which is really lacking in so many of our media voices today. As most would say, I did not always agree with his thoughts, but his ability to convey the message to every day Americans ( and more) will forever be remembered. He set the standard for modern day, sane, thoughtful, political conversation. And for that, we thank him dearly.


  5. Rush felt like a best friend that I never got to meet. I loved to listen to him and when I could not catch the live show, I went to his website. His Limbaugh Letter was always informative and entertaining. I looked forward to it each month. I already miss him so much. His commentary on our presidential interloper Bidet Biden and VP Blow Job Harris would have been epic.
