Limbaugh: A Genius at Radio

Original Article

Posted By: Harlowe, 2/11/2020 11:00:26 PM

Genius is often defined in myriad ways. One trusted criterion is the ability to do something extraordinary in a field where others could not--and doing something that perhaps will never be done again by anyone else.(Snip)Yet ultimately his audience listened because he differentiated between two worlds. On one hand, he saw, with a skeptic’s eye, the cosmos of progressive and liberal translators who selectively edit the day’s events and massage their supposed importance to Americans, to present the news in line with liberals’ preconceived agendas--under the guise that such reporting was beyond reproach as professional, disinterested, and entirely based in facts. Limbaugh exploded all those pretenses.

Comments:

Rush Limbaugh has not hesitated to address issues and events with clarity and purpose for which American conservatives are profoundly grateful. “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” (Theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer) Indeed, Rush Limbaugh uses his “talent on loan from God” most effectively and wonderfully. Thank you, Rush. Keeping you in loving thoughts and prayers.

Thank you, OP, from one Genius, VDH, about another, Rush. Only disagree with one sentence from fellow farmer, VDH: “Once he [Rush] became a national force, hundreds of others became far more effective conservative local and regional voices, partly through the art of emulation, partly through scheduling to lead in to or follow Limbaugh’s daily three-hour show, partly in the general renewed public interest in talk radio itself. [...can’t name a local or regional host who became ‘far more effective’... maybe almost...but open to any names.] Rush shared one day, how his prior ‘radio/ jockey’ experience taught him the value of local and national sponsors, which was the key to his success in fighting initial left oppression... He taught us then the value of the trenches and doing our ‘homework.’ BUT, most importantly, his ‘talent on loan from God,’ gave Almighty God the credit... Thank you, el Rushbo, continued prayers for total healing, by God’s grace. KAG

For me, it was when the government burned down the Waco compound. My usual commute radio station, NPR, was only saying how right it was that Clinton did this. My head was exploding: how could our government intentionally kill presumed innocent men, women, and children and people think it's o.k.? Then I listened to Rush and he got it. I was hooked. He can be pompous and maddeningly repetitive, but he gets it...and sometimes I just need to know I'm not alone out here, loving my country and her founding documents.

Requires subscription after one has used all freebies. If Rush sustained Conservatism and carried the baton on the leg between Reagan and Trump, then "well done, My good and faithful servant."

Wonderful essay, a genuine tribute to El Rushbo. You can always count on VDH to step up and deliver. May God in His infinite mercy allow us to keep this great man with us for a while longer. He (with a capital "H") knows how much we love and need him.

I used to listen to Paul Harvey and his mild conservatism was my “15 minutes of sanity” as I called it. Then Rush came along and conservatives got a voice! Three hours a day that reaches into every corner of the country, especially fly-over country.. Thank you forever, Rush.

Rush continues to view America through the prism of Greek and Roman politics. He has been proven right most of the times because he understands that history rhymes. A great National Treasure.

This is a fitting tribute to a man who has held high the banner of conservatism for so many of us and for so long. He gave us the knowledge that we were not alone and that out thinking was right on, right on, right on. God bless Rush as he steps up as a warrior against the horrific disease of cancer. Many many prayers are being offered on his behalf and he has the love and support of conservatives not only here but around the globe. May he come back from this stronger than ever.

#3, Rush is not pompous - it’s all part of his shtick. He’s one of the most humble people on earth - which is exactly why he says that he has “talent on loan for God”.

VDH at his best! This is much better than the Must Reads of the Day, NH is an insignificant state. There are many take aways from Mr. Hanson's article, here is one: "His forte {Rush's} was explaining why nominal conservatives were infected with a fatal virus of wanting to be liked by the “mainstream media” and the cultural elite — and thus often “grew” in office, moving leftward, as if they had become smarter and more sophisticated than those who had voted for them." I don't think Nunes could have held on without understanding this Rush concept.

AKRON — Legal caps on punitive damages are unconstitutional under Ohio and federal law, attorneys for Gibson's Bakery and members of the Gibson family argued this week in their appeal a year after their clients were awarded millions of dollars in judgment against Oberlin College. Less than a week after Oberlin College filed documents in support of its appeal of the more-than $35 million judgment of a Lorain County jury, attorneys for the Gibsons argued that Oberlin College is "a billion-dollar institution with power and money to bully anyone in the Oberlin community" with a "conscious disregard of the Gibsons' rights

EXCLUSIVE: A voter filed a lawsuit Tuesday against Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, Bureau of Elections Director Jonathan Brater and other officials, claiming that in at least 16 counties voter rolls have not been properly maintained and that this leaves them vulnerable to fraud in November's election.(Snip)In one county, the number of registered voters actually exceeded the number of people of voting age. “Comparing the registered voter count to the 2014-18 American Community Survey reveals that Leelanau County has a registration rate of 102%,” the complaint says. In 15 other counties mentioned in the lawsuit, that percentage is above 90 percent.

Black Lives Matter emerged as a national presence in the years 2014 and 2015 by declaring war on America’s law enforcement agencies. Black Lives Matter activists made headlines occupying America’s streets, targeting racially integrated and even majority minority police forces whom they accused of killing blacks at random merely because they were black. The Black Lives Matter activists fomented riots, burned and looted cities, and incited their followers with chants that ranged from “What do we want? Dead Cops! When do we want them? Now!” to “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.”[1]

OBERLIN — Twenty-three faith leaders from a range of traditions — Baptist, Quaker, Catholic, Presbyterian, Unitarian and more — are calling for the censure of President Donald Trump.(Snip)Oberlin ministers issued a statement Friday, saying “these acts of self-glorification on the part of our nation’s leader must be condemned as blasphemous and unconstitutional.”(Snip)The Oberlin ministers, who represent mostly Christian congregations, are calling on Ohio Sens. Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman as well as Rep. Jim Jordan to begin formal censure proceedings. Censure is a formal reprimand from the House of Representatives, the Senate or both for presidential conduct that does not befit the Oval Office.

Oberlin College and Dean of Students Meredith Raimondo have filed their Appeal Brief (pdf.) in the Gibson’s Bakery case.

"The reality is different in that the protesters are justifying the violence and the anarchy and the rage."(Snip) After two nights of witnessing riots, he said he thought both the police and national guard were acting with incredible restraint.

I haven’t had much time to reflect on the looting and riots that swept mostly (but not exclusively) large Democrat cities. It was a wilding on a scale we’ve never seen. It was a bloodletting and release of criminal fury. We should be clear what is happening. It is not protest over the death of George Floyd. That is the spark, but not the fire. This has been a long time coming. At least a generation, maybe two. The left methodically has taken control of key institutions to implement an anti-American, anti-Capitalist agenda.
