Daily Caller ^ | June 30, 2022 | GABE KAMINSKY
Democratic Illinois Rep. Bobby Rush has mostly voted by proxy over the last two years but spent thousands in travel and event expenses on the dime of taxpayers and donors, federal records reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation show. The House authorized an emergency health policy in May 2020, letting members vote remotely — called “proxy” voting — as “a necessary and immediately feasible low-tech option” for those who cannot be physically present in the chamber. “As in this case, when we see members regularly voting by proxy but also attending public campaign events at the same time, it...

Rep. Bobby Rush, an Illinois Democratic congressman, has paid his wife and son roughly $56,000 from his campaign committee since 2019, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records. His son Jeffrey has notably raked in close to $45,000 for mostly “field services” and “field operations services,” filings show, while his wife Paulette has been paid roughly $11,000 for “accounting services.” “I wouldn’t say it’s a common practice, but it does happen,” Kendra Arnold, executive director of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “It’s illegal to pay a family member anything above fair market...

Breitbart ^ | June 24, 2022 | John Carney
Wall Street has adopted policies to fund travel for abortions for employees that work in states that impose restrictions in anticipation of or following the Supreme Court’s declaration that the constitution is neutral on the subject. In memoranda to employees, both J.P. Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, and Bank of America said they would pay for abortion-related travel for employees in states that restrict abortion. Citigroup announced a similar policy in March. CNBC reported that the J.P. Morgan memo was dated June 1, around one month after a leaked draft of an opinion overturning Roe v. Wade was published by Politico....

Mortgage Purchase Applications SOAR 18% WoW As Homebuyers Rush To Lock In Mortgage Rate Before The Fed Goes Crazy (Mortgage Rates Rise Above 6%)

Confounded Interest ^ | 06/15/2022 | Anthony B. Sanders
The Federal Reserve is driving me crazy! US 30-year mortgage rates have hit the 6% level (and is higher with some major lenders). But the fear of The Fed raising rates even more is causing a rush to lock-in rates. Mortgage applications increased 6.6 percent from one week earlier, according to data from the Mortgage Bankers Association’s (MBA) Weekly Mortgage Applications Survey for the week ending June 10, 2022. Last week’s results are compared to the prior week, which included an adjustment for the Memorial Day holiday. The seasonally adjusted Purchase Index increased 8 percent from one week earlier. The...

'Their ability to think freely as an individual is being repressed' By WND News Services (ALLISRAELNEWS) -- Rush Limbaugh – the late, iconic American radio talk show host – believed that you are never truly free if you are not free to speak what you think. At a time when children are afraid to speak their minds and constantly worry about being ostracized by friends and classmates, a newly released book for children tells the story of the conservative radio host and highlights the importance of freedom of speech

“The Market Has Exploded”: LNG Charter Rates Soar As Traders Rush To Secure Tankers

Zubu Brothers ^ | 6-6-2022
Last week we showed that while US natural gas prices have had several catalysts that have propelled them higher in recent weeks, one of the biggest drivers why natural gas is trading at the highest level in over a decade, was the recent surge in LNG exports to Europe as Reuters’ energy expert John Kemp explained in detail. But while the surge in oil exports is bad news for US consumers, it’s fantastic news for LNG tankers because as the FT reports, the world’s largest gas traders are scrambling to secure liquefied natural gas tankers ahead of winter after the...

On May 28, Sky News Australia posted a video titled "New York bearing signs of 'societal decay.'" The video shows a man (who seems as if he is on drugs) entering a train car and sitting next to a young woman. He then touches her without consent, grabs her, drags her around a bit, and generally is an extremely unpleasant nuisance. He eventually leaves her alone and proceeds to try to kick out one of the windows.During the video, the young woman is seen looking at other passengers, with obvious worry in her eyes, begging somebody to please "help me."...

University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) professor and MSNBC contributor Anthea Butler suggested that Texas police didn’t respond sooner to the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde because they “didn’t give a damn” about a school filled with mostly “brown kids.” “So since no one else will ask, I will. Did those children die because most of them were Mexican American and the police didn’t give a damn about a school w predominately brown kids? I mean, because it’s Texas.. and if you think everyone who isn’t white is illegal,” Butler tweeted on Friday.

Texas cop says officers didn't rush to find gunman because 'they could have been shot' then claims they DELIBERATELY locked inside classroom to save other students: Experts slam 'disgusting' decision that doctors say sealed the fate of injured kids

Texas cops said last night that they didn't immediately rush in to find the shooter on Tuesday's attack after being shot at because they feared they might be killed, and even suggested that they deliberately locked the gunman in the classroom where he slaughtered 21 people in order to trap him. *** He was being challenged by Wolf Blitzer over why the first officers who responded to the shooting retreated after Salvador Ramos shot at them with his AR-15 and then waited an hour for tactical SWAT teams to take him out, leaving him alone in a classroom with the...

Rush singer and bassist Geddy Lee revealed that he and guitarist Alex Lifeson were forbidden from using a slogan they’d come up with for the launch of their branded beer. Rush Canadian Golden Ale weighs in at 5.5% ABV, and the can features the Starman artwork from the classic album 2112, along with the tagline “Books are for tourists.” But in a new interview with Classic Rock, Lee revealed those words aren't the ones they wanted to be inscribed above the graphic. “Rush fans like beer,” he said. “Hendersons approached us during the pandemic and said, ‘If you’re interested, then...

It’s official. The final piece of Rush Limbaugh on syndicated radio will be retired soon. Clay Travis and Buck Sexton told their audience Thursday that the rights to Rush’s iconic bumper music “My City was Gone” are set to expire. Limbaugh popularized the song performed by The Pretenders using it as a bumper song which then became synonymous with his overall brand. “For decades, Rush’s theme song has reminded everyone about their truth and clarity are on the way,” Travis said. “It’s an iconic song forever that’s going to be attached to Rush Limbaugh and everything that he represented.” With...

Joe Biden admitted to removing COVID relief from the package, stating on Monday that he was told it would delay action on the urgently needed Ukrainian aid, confirming that now COVID funds are being diverted to rush the $40 billion towards the Ukraine war.After agreeing to reject a request for further COVID-19 related funding that they intended to merge, Congressional Democrats are pushing to rustle up $39.8 billion in additional Ukraine aid.According to Reuters, the package, which exceeds President Joe Biden’s $33 billion proposal from April, could be voted on by the House as soon as Tuesday, with Senate Democrats...

Nine years ago, on June 14, 2013, the late Rush Limbaugh explained why the legalization of abortion "has caused all kinds of horrible problems that nobody knows how to fix." "I just want to tell you something," Limbaugh told his listeners: "I really think that abortion is at the root — you could do a flowchart — I think abortion is at the root of so much that has and is going wrong in this country. I think that the number of abortions themselves, but what in toto it all means, culturally, in terms of the sanctity of life, how...

Why Isn't Tucker Carlson Taking Rush Limbaugh's Former Radio Slot?

Lately, I've become hooked on Tucker Carlson's segments. I'm watching (actually, listening) on a regular basis. Losing Rush Limbaugh was a body-blow for me. I miss the man; I miss his takes on thing; I miss his wit and his humor. I've listened to many of the would-be replacements, and none of them could be even ten percent of the entertainer and conservative touchstone that Rush was. Today, it occurred to me: Tucker Carlson could do the job. Oh, I grant you, Tucker would never be quite as good as Rush.... but he would be close, as close as anyone...

Swamp Establishment, Donor Class Rush into Ohio to Try to Stop Trump-Backed J.D. Vance

Much like how many in the establishment raced to stop Donald J. Trump’s 2016 ascendancy to the GOP presidential nomination and eventually the White House, donor class and swamp forces are swooping into Ohio to try to block Hillbilly Elegy author J.D. Vance from winning Tuesday’s primary to replace retiring Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH). This 2022 primary for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate has been particularly revealing, showing what campaign consultants, donors, and politicians, both those from Ohio and elsewhere, are really all about when it comes to not just Trump himself but also key policies that Trump championed...

Heroes of Liberty will release a children’s book about late talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh next month, the latest in a series of biographies for youngsters that teach traditional conservative values through the stories of American heroes. The Limbaugh installment is designed to teach kids the importance of free speech and that it’s okay to speak your mind -- even if some people will disagree."We started Heroes of Liberty about a year ago, and it was because we saw a hole in the marketplace. We saw that this was a need that wasn't being filled," Heroes of Liberty editor Bethany...

American ^ | April 29, 2022 | M.B> Mathews
"Don't doubt me," he would say. Rush often said he could read the stitches on a fast ball. He was the most politically prescient person in public life for 33 years before he died more than a year ago. American conservatives mourned his passing because he was almost always right, 99.7% of the time according to an unbiased opinion auditing firm. We relied on Rush for our daily briefing of leftist outrages and how to combat them. The trust Rush had built up among his audience was so massive, so devoted, and so unparalleled in modern communications, that his radio...

The Reason For My Faith ^ | 4/10/22 | Chuck Ness
In his September 2017 issue of the Limbaugh letter, Rush wrote the following. "The Democrat Party is seen by more and more people as a Bullying Big Government brute. Democrat policies aren't working for the people - they fail, every time they're tried. That's what the Republicans are missing! They're blowing the greatest chance imaginable to deal a lethal blow electorally, to reduce the Democrats to a weak, hallowed-out shadow of their former status for a generation."Now at the time when this issue was published, we had Trump as President, and he had both houses of Congress. Yet the Republicans...

The Food and Drug Administration is expected to approve a fourth dose of Pfizer and Moderna's Wuhan coronavirus vaccine this week, despite a lack of clinical data showing they are effective or necessary. "Drugmaker Moderna asked the Food and Drug Administration on Thursday to authorize a fourth shot of its COVID-19 vaccine as a booster dose for all adults," CBS News reported late last week. "The request is broader than rival pharmaceutical company Pfizer's request earlier this week for the regulator to approve a booster shot for all seniors." Doctors truly focused on following the science, not political science, are...
