RUSH: A federal judge has barged into the “Sanctuary City” issue. U.S. District Judge William "Vacuum Cleaner" Orrick blocked President Trump’s Executive Order, which simply promised to enforce existing law. That's all it did! It's a law signed in 1996 by Bill Clinton. It withholds certain federal funds from cities that flout federal immigration law.
RUSH: Trump was sent to Washington to drain the swamp. If the Democrat Party, as losers, can continue to thwart the winners with this never-ending threat of a government shutdown and that the Republicans are gonna get blamed for it, to me, it's time to change that.
RUSH: The social justice warriors at Apple … do not want to pay such a high, exorbitant rate as 35%. So they keep that money overseas where much of it has been earned. Repatriation is the bringing that money back home and having it circulating in the American economy. There is a one-time repatriation tax rate being proposed.
RUSH: The left does understand how raising taxes reduces economic activity. How about their desire for increasing cigarette taxes, soda taxes? What are they trying to do? Get you to buy less. They know. They know that higher taxes reduce activity. It's real simple: If you want more of an activity, lower taxes on it. If you want less of an activity, raise taxes.
RUSH: This woman is out there saying, "If we're gonna have tax cuts, we must find a way to pay for them, otherwise the deficit will explode out of control just like happened with Reagan…" I'm pulling my hair out. Because it's not what happened. The deficit didn't grow; the deficit came down. In like eight years, Reagan almost doubled the amount of revenue that the government collected from taxes.
RUSH: These judges are enforcing their own policy preferences in their efforts to use their power to thwart and stop the president of the United States. … All this executive order was, essentially, was a statement that existing federal law regarding the funding of sanctuary cities would be enforced.
RUSH: No longer is this just gonna be a long list of stories that I might mention on the program. Now, you will get specifically the stories that I talk about on the program and a select list of a few others that I intended to get to but ran out of time. It's going to be more of a real-time base feature rather than just a generic list of places that I go to prep the show.
