The State of Conservatism Post Rush Limbaugh

Original Article

Posted By: DW626, 2/7/2023 6:26:51 AM

I really miss Rush. Regardless how complex or critical the issue, I could always count on Rush Limbaugh’s entirely rational and moral analysis, delivered by an apex professional with genuine compassion, even for those with whom he disagreed. He was ensconced behind that golden EIB microphone; a master of ideas and argument. From his lofty height, he engaged with every thorny problem with an equanimity that drew a placid sagacity from an ocean of experience, and confidence. After all, Rush was “documented almost always right 99.7% of the time.” He was a compass that always pointed the precise bearing to truth. He was the constitutionalists’ loadstar.

Rush vocalized what we had been thinking and feeling, so we felt calmer just knowing that our beliefs were main stream. He had the unique ability to bring humor to a topic that could cause outrage. He could make us laugh at the absurdity of the other view, which we hoped would infuriate the opposition. I miss him terribly!

I'm right there with you #2. I'm still heartbroken and miss El Rushbo beyond words. The article mentions Jordan Peterson, I wish he had a daily show and not just a podcast. There is a huge void since Rush passed away.

Let’s start with failure to protect his brand at the retail level: those who promoted a back bench congressman and cIA hack, who offers that credential without any critical reflection on the recent failures of the intelligence community and Republican legislators to protect Americans, American exceptionalism and American culture, and some other talk radio sports guy, whose goal is not ruffle feathers,. The populist conservative message of limited government and maximum individual freedom and free markets, principles no longer articulated or embraced , but thwarted by an unchallenged media and unchallenged politicians. Need to establish who is responsible for deliberately erasing Rushes legacy. They’ve done to Rushes show what the did to Buckley’s National Review.

Rush was able to explain things without condescending to his audience. He was a trailblazer that saved AM radio and gave millions of conservatives a voice. He was first and foremost an extremely talented and entertaining broadcaster that made it look effortless. When I hear an old clip from his show, I am brought to unexpected tears. The GOAT as they say now.

As much as I miss Rush, God took him home on His timeline. Personally, I'm glad Rush isn't here to watch the destruction of the country he loved so much. While he educated and entertained us with his wit, he was unable to stem the tide of the destruction over his 31 years on radio. His show let us know we weren't alone in our views. However, I disagree with the author. He may not like the brash conservative views of I'm assuming Dan Bongino who I think took over the NY market, but 31 years of Rush reassuring us that we weren't alone didn't stem the tide of destruction. Rush's death gave rise to the ability of activist conservatives to get us engaged in a fight that we have no option but to win or we will be destroyed. Playing nice in the sandbox got us no where. I strongly encourage those unhappy with Rush's replacement to start listening to the Warroom Podcast with Steve Bannon and crew. He is not Rush in personality but he understands the graveness of our situation and calls on WTP to engage and join the fight to save our country. I highly recommend it. I will always be grateful to Rush for his wealth of knowledge. But God brought him home for a reason, as angry as I was at God for taking both him and allowing Trump to be removed from office. He has a grand plan whether we like it or not. It might just be that He's giving us a chance to save ourselves but we need to be willing to fight for it. Warroom is a great place to start. RIP Rush!

Growing up I anticipated Paul Harvey ensuring that whenever possible I could her "Hello, Americans! Standby for news!"..." Good day!". In my early 40s I discovered Rush and eagerly awaited "...across the fruited plains...". Both validated my conservative beliefs and articulated them in an entertaining fashion.

Like #15, I find Tray and Buck arrogant, self important and grating. How often I have tuned in on the car radio and can’t listen for more than a few minutes. Their silly conversations are not informative and really not even entertaining. I miss Rush’s passion , his love for this great country and his demon for personal responsibility. Rush was the real deal. Who on earth ever decided on the silly tag team that now sits behind the EIB microphone?

Dan Bongino is Rush's replacement in the DC/MD/VA market - see talk radio. I generally like Dan and his views, in particular that on Joe Biden being a foreign agent. However, his talking style and his off hand comments about what he is drinking or whatever is rather annoying. HIs jokiness (for lack of better description) is annoying a and a bit immature. Travis and Buck - don't listen to them and anyone who is former CIA - I take their opinions with a very large grain of salt. Fox News seems to have thing for them so I do not.

Back in the mid-nineties a thought ran through my mind while listening to Rush of what would it be like when Rush is no longer around. I suspected it wouldn't be like before Rush came along with no conservative voices out there simply because Rush had started a trend that was too popular and profitable to not continue. We are in a period where we are looking for the next Rush Limbaugh, knowing fool well that there was only one Rush Limbaugh.

Have not been able to get into Clay & Buck, Bongino isn't on stations around here, and the only time I get to hear any 11-2 (CT) talk shows is Friday afternoon.

We knew that he'd be irreplaceable. Can you imagine the parodies that Rush would have treated us to for the past two years, particularly those dealing with Kamala Harris? Still, Rush caught a lucky break. God spared him from the pain of seeing and experiencing the country that he so loved and tried unsuccessfully to save.

Rush had many inside sources that he would call about an issue and then he would give us the whole explanation including the backstory. Sometimes his explanation on a complex topic would take nearly an hour segment and it was interspersed with humor and entertainment. He was not boring. The only thing I get anymore is a short propaganda statement from the government/news-media that leaves me with many more questions that the reporters apparently don't know to ask. Except for Peter Doocy. And if somewhere someone makes a statement that starts to contain the truth then Google or Youtube pastes a banner telling us to go to some UN statement on climate change which is filled with total nonsense.

You know the funny thing is, many in this salon were certain that Rush was in here from time to time, and that his show prepped looked to see what articles had been posted. Like so many of us, we come here to share and not miss things. You sometimes got the sense he found stuff here. I get the sense Buck and Clay don't know about this place, much less come here.

#30 I have the same question. My brother lives near Tyler Texas and his radio station allowed the people to choose who would fill Rush's time slot, by playing some different shows and letting the people call in to vote. They chose Jimmy Failla. At least he has the sense of humor that we miss. No one will ever put in the work on show prep that Rush did, or have his reasoning skills. I listen online when I think of it, but can't find him on my radio in Baton Rouge. Failla is much better than the choice made by the EIB and my radio station.

A recent epidemic of airline near misses deserves both attention and reflection. In mid-December, a San Francisco-bound United Airlines Boeing 777-200 airliner, just a little over a minute after taking off from Maui, Hawaii, suddenly dived. It lost more than half its altitude and came within 800 feet of crashing into the Pacific Ocean before pulling up. About a month later, an American Airlines jet crossed the runway at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport just as a Delta Air Lines plane was accelerating for takeoff. The two aircraft nearly collided.

A report is circulating that Biden expressly ordered U.S. Navy divers to blow up the Nord Stream pipelines through which Russian natural gas flowed to Europe. If that’s true, Biden committed an act of war. I have a proposal, though, to keep Putin from launching an ICBM in our direction. The allegation comes from Seymour Hersh, 85, the journalist the highlight of whose long career Wikipedia describes. In 1969, Hersh broke the story of the My Lai massacre that had happened the year before. Since then, Hersh has alleged that U.S. intelligence tricked the Soviets into shooting down Korean Air Flight 007 in 1983;

In celebrating Black history month this year, I thought it would be fitting to finally recognize a triumph of African American literature that has, ironically, been falsely accused of racism. That achievement is embodied in a 1946 Walt Disney movie entitled Song of the South. I assume many of you have not seen the film because Disney has succumbed to the accusations of racism by refusing to re-release it in any form. Nonetheless, you may at least recognize the film’s buoyant Academy Award winning song, “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” which arguably forms the musical backbone of the movie.

America's Civil War, which raged from 1861 to 1865, was by far the bloodiest conflict in our history. Original estimates put the death toll at about 620,000, including some 360,000 Union and 260,000 Confederate dead. More recent estimates of the carnage are even higher: 750,000 to 850,000. The Battle of Antietam on Sept. 17, 1862, at Sharpsburg, Maryland, still ranks as the bloodiest day in U.S. history, with nearly 23,000 casualties on both sides, including 3,675 killed in action.

The Biden administration is reportedly finalizing a proposal that would force fossil fuel-fired power plants to substantially curb emissions or utilize costly carbon capture technology.

Election officials, appointed by Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R), are set to remove nearly 19,000 dead voter registrants from Virginia’s voter rolls. This week, Virginia Department of Elections Commissioner Susan Beals, appointed by Youngkin last year, announced that close to 19,000 dead registrants were recently discovered on the state’s voter rolls.
