RUSH: Now we’re at Trump’s first 100 days. The defining factor is not what he has or hasn’t done. It’s what his liberal opposition has done.
RUSH: Barack Obama considered being homosexual as a young man, according to a forthcoming biography … by David Garrow, Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama… Oh, now I'm just… I'm confused, folks.
RUSH: Ajit Pai is the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. He is a wonderful man, very, very smart, and is prepared now to roll back elements of Title II of the communication law, which is popularly known as net neutrality. Net neutrality is a total creation of left-wing politics, and it has many lies, many fraudulent notions about it, such as the internet will only be free and open when government is regulating it.
RUSH: Now you can't even lower your eyes and walk away without being considered a deplorable. And this is at Oxford. This is the highest of higher education.
RUSH: Tax rates are being cut. Taxes are not. The government is going to collect more revenue than they think. In fact, the Trump team gets it; they're saying it's gonna pay for itself. How does it do that? It pays for itself by generating new revenue. Lowering tax rates creates more money to Washington.
CALLER: What I took away from the meeting is that the image that mainstream media and others are trying to portray of Mr. Trump, in particular in regard to rural America and agriculture, that he does not care anything about that, that is just totally opposite. He shared with us many things that reinforced my belief that not only does he care for rural America, but he wants to strengthen agriculture in America which will further strengthen and make America great again.
RUSH: I want the Democrats shut down, once and for all, on this government shutdown threat. I want them eating this, and I want all kinds of horrible tasting stuff on it when they swallow it. I want this government shutdown stuff rammed in every orifice of theirs whether you can see it or not! I want them to eat it and I want them to chew it and I want them to swallow it and I don't want them to ever regurgitate it.
RUSH: The tax reform package is massive. It reduces seven tax brackets to three.
RUSH: You sound very frustrated out there… The Washington Post did a story on this. Snerdley brought it to my attention. And the actual first few words in the story: "Rush Limbaugh and his listeners were not happy with reports this week," and they quoted accurately three callers here. You now would constitute the fourth that actually got through.
RUSH: They never want you to know these things are bought, paid for, staged. But now, because of Trump's tweet, they're having to admit that they are paying people, but now they're saying it doesn't mean anything. But it clearly does. Progress yet again. Score another one for Trump.
RUSH: Now, Washington believes that we have narrowly averted a disaster, that the inexperienced, know-nothing, ribald, bodacious Donald Trump nearly destroyed one of the firm trade deals we've got by simply speaking up and shouting and ripping it apart and claiming we're gonna pull off it, causing a worldwide panic. When, in fact, the exact opposite is what has happened.
RUSH: I didn't see this, 'cause I don't watch MSNBC, but the headline of this: Celebrity Chef on MSNBC: "There's No Legal Way for Immigrants to Actually Enter This Country."
RUSH: Usually on a program like this when you have an intense election that features a campaign of a minimum of one year or longer, once the election's over, the results are in, the intensity usually lightens and fades away. And audience levels go back to what their historic norms were. Not the case this year on this program. The audience has continued to build.
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.
