RUSH: You have no idea how much you mean to me, my family, the overrated staff and everybody associated with us.
RUSH: On balance, I'm up during this time of year, and most of the times of the year. But it got me to thinking just how many people in the country today are in fact miserable because of the successful year that Trump had. And Trump's successful year means great things for the country. Make no mistake about it. Trump having a widely successful, way-beyond-expectations first year is phenomenal for the country.
Swamp Republicans Have Warmed Up to Trump Because They Finally Believe the Mueller Investigation Is BS
RUSH: The reason why the Republicans in the House and Senate have warmed up to Donald Trump, the reason they now appear to be happily and eagerly on his team is because they now think that the Trump-Russia collusion charge is bogus.
RUSH: Once again, ladies and gentlemen, talk radio credited (or blamed, depending on your perspective) for the fact that more Republicans are now beginning to suspect the integrity of the Mueller investigation. What has taken you so long?
RUSH: I'm gonna go on record December 22, 2017: Based on all that is known now, the Republican Party is not gonna lose control of the House, they're not gonna lose control of the Senate — and, in fact, the Democrats may lose even more seats in the Senate.
CALLER: I'm calling now embarrassed to say that 13 months ago I only plugged my nose and voted for Donald Trump. He was not my candidate of choice. He was simply the best of two options. I'm calling to apologize through your show and as directly as I can to him and say, "I'm sorry, Mr. President, I could have been a better supporter last year and in the future I will be." I am a huge supporter. Love the guy. Love everything he's done.
RUSH: Regulations are falling by the wayside. They're all happy about it. Now, over here, outside all of that, is the Democrat Party mad as they can be — livid — instead of trying to get in on this. Instead of trying to get in on what is going to be a newfound prosperity, on a new round of economic growth — instead of trying to get in on this — they are purposely standing aside.
RUSH: If we do not stop the open border immigration and chain migration that results from it, we simply are going to lose our culture. Because the immigrants that are coming are not interested in assimilating.
Former Head of MI6 Thinks American Exceptionalism Is Measured by How Much We Do for Other Countries at Our Own Expense
RUSH: So American exceptionalism to these clowns is defined by how much we do for other countries at our own expense. And how about this question: "Do you think Donald Trump's the biggest threat to the world?" This guy agrees with the premise.
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.
