RUSH: On Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the end to an Obama ban which prevented the transfer of surplus military equipment to local police departments. President Trump — who has “a pen and a phone” — used his pen to sign an executive order overturning Obama’s decision.
RUSH: We are surrounded by people who, for whatever reason, think the United States is the problem in the world. We elect somebody who believes in the United States and wants to make it great again and these people start having conniption fits and start questioning his fitness for office? You've got it ass backwards, Director Clapper.
RUSH: My cat, Allie, was going nuts on the coffee table in front of me and I thought it was just 'cause she missed me 'cause I was gone for a week.
RUSH: Dr. Roy Spencer. He's the chief climatologist at University of Alabama in Huntsville. And I have referred to him off and on as our "official climatologist" because he is one of the accredited sources I seek and cite. And so the media, constantly focused on this program looking for any evidence that we might get something wrong, have decided to investigate Dr. Spencer!
RUSH: He found a website where you can do this and he shut the website down within minutes of it going live because the website had not had this kind of traffic before. Just gobs and gobs of money are pouring in charitably to various fundraising efforts in Houston.
Gary Cohn and Rex Tillerson Cannot Be Allowed to Side with the Hate Groups Antifa, SPLC Over the President
RUSH: It could well be that Cohn and Tillerson just chose the path of least resistance. Maybe it was, "I don't want to get in a scrap with the media. Look what they're doing to Trump. I'd rather be on the good side." You know, like the congressional Republicans and senatorial Republicans have decided to do.
RUSH: I predicted this the week before I went on vacation. I said where do these national anthem protests naturally end up? You get rid of the anthem.
RUSH: "Don't worry about it. We're gonna have the money." That's how you show you care, in the modern presidency. And that's why Pence made the point. He knew the media was gonna be listening and, if they didn't hear that (pshew!), all hell would have broken loose.
RUSH: Man, I tell you, I don’t care what’s happening in Houston, the Trump hate is ongoing. The anti-Trump thinking, actions — the protests, the apparent desire to rip this country apart and eventually destroy it — goes on unabated, as does the meteorological disaster taking place in southeastern Texas.
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.
