    Of all the lame excuses . . . CNN This Morning came up with a laughable one today. CNN White House correspondent MJ Lee blamed Biden's "hectic, crazy" schedule during his final days as Vice President for classified documents winding up in Biden's personal possession. Among the items on Biden's "hectic, crazy" schedule making it so, so difficult to handle the classified documents in a proper manner, Lee cited:"the surprise Medal of Freedom ceremony that was given to him by the president then, President Barack Obama."Seriously? How long could that take? In contrast with Biden's predilections, Obama presumably didn't even...

    Editors NoteDavid Limbaugh wrote the following column in February 2020, just after his brother's diagnosis. He will have more to say next week about his brother's passing.I am uniquely blessed to be Rush Limbaugh's brother in ways too numerous to count, and I am blessed to be in the special position of witnessing firsthand the outpouring of love and prayers from his family, friends and fans. His wife, Kathryn, has been amazing and a rock throughout. I could fill a book with the well-wishes I've received. I sent Rush a link to my "mentions" column on Twitter so he could...

    The New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has been a close friend of President Donald Trump for many years. He has even visited him at the White House multiple times over the past four years. That’s why it had to have come as a shock to Trump that Belichick snubbed him by turning down the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

    President Trump on Monday awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Rep. Jim Jordan, the Republican from Ohio who has served as a high-profile congressional defender of the Trump throughout his presidency. A statement from the White House credited Jordan with his efforts to fight back against the Democratic-led impeachment effort against President Trump last year that ended without a conviction in the Senate. "At the beginning of last year, Jordan was named ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee and led the effort to confront the impeachment witch hunt," the White House said. "He is an inspiration to freedom-loving...

    Three decades ago, a mysterious and terrifying plague began to take the lives of people across the world. Before this malady even had a name, it had a fierce opponent in Dr. Anthony Fauci. As the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for more than 23 years, Tony Fauci has led the fight against HIV and AIDS. He was also a leading architect and champion of the Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, which over the past five years has reached millions of people -- preventing HIV infections in infants and easing suffering and bringing dying communities...

    Former Rep. Ron Paul on Thursday called for the firing of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease specialist leading President Trump’s medical response to the coronavirus pandemic. Mr. Paul, a retired doctor who ran three times for president during his decades in politics, also called Dr. Fauci a “fraud” and encouraged Americans to “quit listening to him.” The former Republican congressman from Texas made the remarks during an internet program he co-hosts, the Ron Paul Liberty Report, after Dr. Fauci slashed the number of Americans projected to die from COVID-19, the infectious respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

    Conservative radio host and recent recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom Rush Limbaugh found himself in hot water Thursday over remarks he made about former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign. In a nutshell, the fiery right wing superstar opined on how Democrats view the impact of Mayor Pete’s homosexuality in a potential debate against Donald Trump, who Limbaugh views as an alpha male. Here are the remarks in question: Then they’re sitting there and they’re looking at Mayor Pete, a 37-year-old gay guy, mayor of South Bend, loves to kiss his husband on the debate stage, and...

One of the things I’m gratified about — you know, I don’t like to brag, and I don’t like to say, “notice me.” But everything happening to the Democrat Party today, if you go back and you look at excerpts of the award-winning broadcast, go to, you’ll find that I predicted this implosion of the Democrat Party.

    When President Donald Trump bestowed the Presidential Medal of Freedom on ailing right-wing, talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh at the State of the Union, it wasn’t just a feel-good moment for his conservative base. It was also a gesture of thanks to a (fellow) media personality who helped set the stage for Trump’s astonishing political success. Limbaugh’s brash and boorish persona, and his belief that white, male cultural centrality is, to quote the title of Limbaugh's first book, “the way things ought to be," paved the way for the political rise of the bombastic media performer currently sitting in the...

    The Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest honor a president can bestow on a civilian. Obama awarded the most such medals of any president, giving out 123. Many of Obama's recipients arguably deserved the award, including Bill and Melinda Gates, John Glenn, Stephen Hawking, Sandra Day O'Connor, and Sidney Poitier. Obama also gave the award to Republicans like former President George H.W. Bush. Yet a surprisingly large number of Obama's Presidential Medal of Freedom recipients turned out to be campaign donors for both Obama and his hand-picked successor, Hillary Clinton. At least 17 of his donors received the honor, including...

    Hillary Clinton has refused to rule out taking on the job of Vice President if the Democrats win the election in November. The former Secretary of State, who has run two failed campaigns to become president herself, said she 'probably won't be asked' to take the role by whoever becomes the Democrat nominee this time around. But, speaking to Ellen DeGeneres on her chat show, she added 'never say never' - recalling how she turned down Obama's offer of leading the State Department twice, before accepting the role and serving for four years. **SNIP** Instead, she said: 'You've got to...

    A dear friend of mine once asked me years ago of Rush Limbaugh, “Is he a better conservative or a better broadcaster?” From time to time over the years, we have returned to that debate whenever we’ve marveled at a particular bit of news Limbaugh’s show has made or a particular monologue that was so good we texted back and forth like teens. “Did you just hear what Rush said?” The question isn’t meant to be answered. It’s probably why my friend and I love to engage in it so often. It’s our way of returning to a discussion of...
