RUSH: President Trump’s criticism of the NFL for supporting player protests during the National Anthem has sent Democrat Congressman Al Green over the edge.
RUSH: This is the deal. I really believe that if for just three months, going forward, or if they had three months in the past, just three months, gut it up for three months and work with Trump on his agenda, on cutting taxes seriously, across the board, immigration reform, the wall, what have you, getting rid of Obamacare, which is just — it's an absolute crime what has happened here and what that's gonna mean to the country. Just try for three months, make it look like there's unity between the president and the people in his own party, and they would own Washington for a generation.
RUSH: I'm not sure the NFL really knows who its audience is. I think I know who they would like it to be. They would like it to be fellow brie and white wine people and sophisticates.
RUSH: This is the political establishment being flipped upside down. Money has always equaled victory. Whoever had more of it won. But what a research project has found is that TV ads in the last three weeks to a month leading up to an election were not persuasive in changing people's minds how they were gonna vote.
RUSH: What Roy Moore said is absolutely spot on and correct. Our rights don't come from government. They don't come from the Bill of Rights. They come from Almighty God. The view of the Founding Fathers — and you would know this if you'd been educated on it. I'm convinced Chuck Todd is uneducated on the Constitution, or maybe ill-educated.
RUSH: I'm not convinced they like the power of governing or the pressure of it, but I do know they weren't prepared for it. I thought Trump was gonna win. Many of you out there thought Trump was gonna win. They thought we were nuts. They think and thought Trump is nuts. They didn't think Trump was gonna win. Then Trump wins, and you know what I didn't see? Joy. I didn't see joy on the Republican side.
RUSH: On this one, President Trump is who he is. He is a full-fledged nationalist-populist, and this tax policy indicates that.
RUSH: CNN’s got a reporter down in Puerto Rico right now, and he’s standing on one side of a river. And the chyron graphic says, “Desperate Puerto Ricans Forced to Cross River.” This guy was able to get there himself. He’s probably got plenty of food and water for himself and his crew, and he’s standing there watching a bunch of Puerto Ricans unable to get where he is.
RUSH: On balance this thing has a lot of good stuff in it. But it isn't a conservative tax plan. It's not a pro-growth tax plan.
RUSH: By the way, a full-court press is on to get me to do TV again. You should have seen this! I mean they were coming at me from every — even the lighting and sound people. "You know, you really do need to be back on TV." Full-court press.
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.
