RUSH: And here we are, back at it, folks. Great to be with you. After a long Independence Day weekend, Rush Limbaugh back at it here behind the Golden EIB Microphone at the distinguished and prestigious, one-of-a-kind Limbaugh Institute where there are no graduates and no degrees because the learning never ends. Telephone number, 800-282-2882. The email address, ElRushbo@eibnet.us.
Man, a lot has happened. There was no downtime. The news and life does not take any time off anymore, no matter what the week, no matter the weekend, no matter the holiday. And, of course, Americans, as Newt Gingrich wrote in an op-ed over the weekend predicting, by the way, that Kamala Harris is gonna be the Democrat nominee. Its a long essay. It would print out to like nine or 10 pages.
Its a long way of getting there, but he thinks Kamala Harris, he acknowledges that theres a lot to happen between now and when the Democrats choose, but, if it were today, he thinks Kamala Harris has it hands down and explains why. But in that piece, he makes a couple of observations that are really spot-on.
One of them is that Americans are more focused on the future. Whats next as a society, whats next? We get bored very easily, we have things happen, we get used to them, we get saturated, we want to know: Whats next? Whats next? You know, Apple comes out with a new iPhone every September and by November people are ready for the next one. Whats next? Apple upgrades the software one day and then a week later, whats next, whats next? Nothing can keep up with as fast as the American people want to change, in some ways.
And then there are other aspects of life where Americans dont want much to change at all, particularly the stuff thats being advocated by the left and the Democrat Party. Now, the reason Im and Im gonna expand on all of this as the program unfolds, cause its a lot of stuff thats happened, but I want to really start by going back to something.
But before I get there, I just want to chronicle that by going back, I am not gonna be ignoring the present, which, of course, is the Jeffrey Epstein stuff. I cant believe Well, I can believe it. Everybody says that this Epstein thing poses a great threat to Trump? How about Bill Clinton, for crying out loud? Bill Clinton was flying around all over the world with this guy. George Stephanopoulos and Katie Couric attended dinner with Epstein after he was released from jail, Palm Beach County jail here.
He spent 10 months in jail on this really convoluted deal where he was granted immunity from federal prosecution, but thats been thrown out now. Theyre going out of their way to try Trump said one thing about this guy. Bill Clinton traveled the world with this guy. Theyre gonna be doing everything they can to protect every Democrat that was involved with Epstein, but almost everybody that was involved with Epstein was a Democrat because Epsteins a big Democrat donor and fundraiser and so forth.
Big earthquakes in California and we had earthquakes all over the country in the form of job approval news, ABC News/Washington Post, Trump has hit his all-time high. Theyre in panic at ABC/Washington Post in the polling unit because the poll says also Trump has a narrow path to reelection victory. Narrow. Exactly what they were saying in 2016.
Remember as they were getting close to the election they were looking at the Electoral College map and, Well, theres a very narrow path for Donald Trump, but things have to fall exactly right, highly unlikely, wouldnt worry about it. We know what happened. Theyre just repeating things. Trumps job approval is at an all-time high in the ABC News/Washington Post poll. The economic numbers are jaw dropping, 224,000 new jobs added in June.
Thats six-million-plus jobs added since the election of Trump in 2016. Average hourly wages are up 3.1% this past year. Its the 16th consecutive month the unemployment rate has been at or below 4%. We had the America female soccer team the womens what is it, female soccer team or womens? Which do they prefer, female soccer team or womens? They won the womens World Cup and now theres this massive cry for equal pay with mens soccer.
Im gonna tell you the economics of it and why the pay isnt equal, and its purely a matter of economics. Its not bias, its not misogyny, its not anti-women or any of that. Its just the economics. Mens soccer generates gazillions times more dollars than womens soccer does. Theres simply a bigger pie to divvy up in mens soccer.
Yeah, Rush, and thats the problem. Its inherently unfair. Its the market! And its related to what people want to see. What theyre willing to pay to see, what theyre willing to line up and stand in line to pay to see.
Pelosi interview op-ed, New York Times, called out the radical the leftist young whippersnappers in her party, and they are firing back. Kamala Harris has promised free housing for blacks. If you are a young white Millennial couple, say, earning $70,000, hundred thousand dollars a year, you dont get jack. You get nothing. But Kamala Harris wants to give black young people free housing.
This British ambassador to the United States for which the Brits have now apologized I want to get into this this too. This is a very long story in the U.K. Daily Mail and I want to parse it, because all it is, all it is is an establishment Brit, aristocratical, elitist Brit who could be right at home in the Washington establishment; his problems with Trump are identical to what the D.C. establishment is. Its not even specific. It is generic. And its highly embarrassing for the Brits that it leaked, but it is quite instructive. Im gonna break that down. I spent a lot of time editing that piece this morning, which we will do.
The Iranians are just challenging everybody on their uranium enrichment limits. They are going beyond what the limits are in the so-called Iran deal. And they are literally begging for somebody to make em stop. So we shall see.
I couldn’t get Rush today. I usually listen to AM 1320 in Pittsburgh. Today it way silent.
Then I tried 1290 on the web, I think it’s Wichita Falls. But that station was dead too.
Did anyone else have trouble getting Rush?
Condensed version of the weekend news:
Recapping All the News that Broke Over the Weekend
The Democrats still Hate America, Americans, and everything she stands for.
So she's to pay REPARATIONS TO HERSELF!!!
Not ELIGIBLE to be President not a natural born citizen
Rush, Sean & Mark and President Trump will not say that.
Its up to us get the word out but im betting our President will say something
Only Rush could spend 3 hours explaining to us dummies what happened over the weekend.
Sometimes Mr. Limbaugh gets a little too much of himself. Fortunately, there are other radio stations.
I listen to Rush every day, his recaps are always great to hear, especially with his commentary.
Unfortunately a huge percentage of voters don’t have a clue as to the actual meaning of natural born and another huge group don’t actually care. If it still meant something Obama would never have been in the oval office. The only way he is a natural born citizen is if he is lying about who his parents are and in that case he is guilty of fraud.
Then listen to those other radio stations.
Every time Rush starts yakking about Apple, the NFL, his golf game, etc.
Also when Rush spends more than 2 minutes “explaining” to his audience something that’s been in the news for a couple of days.
He treats us like were a bunch of uninformed idiots.
