    RUSH: We have this sham of an impeachment designed to do what? This is something that I have been giving considerable thought to, because none of this makes any sense if you look at it from the perimeters of conventional wisdom. By this I mean they’re never going to get a conviction. See, to me, this is, the overriding reality of this, that makes me question what the real motivations are. And then with what Round Mound of the Gavel did yesterday by accusing the very senators of being part of a cover-up. They supposedly want to change their minds...

    RUSH: The Democrats now have 24 hours to make their case, two 12-hour days, ’cause the first day, the rules debate was yesterday. Twenty-four hours. Have you ever heard of any criminal trial with an opening argument, an opening statement of a week or four days. Twenty-four hours. And here’s the rub. They don’t have a case. They don’t have a crime. They don’t have an impeachable offense. And yet they’re going to take 24 hours to present what they are going to try to convince people are crimes and impeachingable offenses. I don’t know how people are gonna put...

    RUSH: Yesterday I made a point that the Democrats and the media are gonna try to find enough Republicans and turn ’em into Jeff Flakes. In fact, let’s start the audio sound bites. To review this, grab audio sound bite number 1. We’ll do 1, 2, and 3. We got some examples of the media trying to do this, and then the piece de resistance is the acknowledgment that they failed. So, here is how I characterized this yesterday. RUSH ARCHIVE: The Drive-By Media is all ecstatic because they think McConnell has already caved by giving an additional day to...

    Since the passing of legendary drummer Neil Peart, who died on January 7th after a 3 year battle with brain cancer, Rush has seen a significant climb in their music streams and album sales. According to Billboard, the prog-rock legends have seen upwards of a 776 percent increase in their total streams and a 2000 percent increase in their album sales. These streaming and sales boosts are all compared to the 4 days before Neil’s death was made public; January 6th-9th. Nielsen Music/MCR Data measured that the band’s streams were at an estimated 2.8 million during the four days prior,...
  • Neil Peart, Champion of Individualism; The late drummer left behind a legacy of unparalleled musicianship and freedom-celebrating lyrics.

    Neil Peart, the longtime drummer for the Canadian band Rush, died last week of brain cancer, leaving behind a legacy as one of rock's most technically accomplished percussionists and perhaps its most articulate libertarian lyricist. The 67-year-old songwriter regularly championed individualism, choice, and freedom over soul-crushing conformity. Early Rush songs are saturated with such messages. The song "Freewill," released on 1980's Permanent Waves album, puts self-determination at the root of the human experience: "If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice." In "The Trees," released two years earlier, Peart tells a fable about a forest where...

    RUSH: Here’s a little bit of President Trump today from the speech. We’ll start at audio sound bite number 6. He made a dramatic entrance. Oh! A lot of people are wondering why this particular area of the White House. This was not the Diplomatic Reception Room. It was not the Oval Office. It was not the East Room. It wasn’t a room, actually. It was a hallway. I’ll tell you where this was. If you remember watching some presidential prime time press conferences, you see the president come out of a door and walk down a long hall with...

    RUSH: Democrats are starting to get nervous, starting to get a little angry, a little antsy out there at Nancy Pelosi. Laura Litvan, who is a Senate reporter for Doomberg News, tweeted (this was about an hour and a half ago), “Dianne Feinstein says it’s time for Speaker Nancy Pelosi to send the impeachment articles to the Senate. ‘If we’re going to do it, she should send them over,’ said. ‘I don’t see what good delay does.'” And you see where the Turtle said that he’s gonna go ahead and do this trial and not call any witnesses. He doesn’t...

    RUSH: I want to get some of the audio sound bites here of the some of the Drive-By Media that happened last night and this morning after Iran launched its impotent little salvo at a couple of bases in Iraq where Americans were stationed. We have a montage here — this is audio sound bite number 3. This is literally the Drive-By Media praising Iran for intentionally causing no casualties and saving the world from the madman, Donald Trump. Now, let me give you the timeline of this. Last night when Iran launches its missiles, which we all saw in...

    RUSH: I made mention of the fact yesterday that General Soleimani was flown back to Tehran in a cardboard box. There was no body. There were body parts. There was a hand with an identifiable ring. Flown back there in a box that was laid out across three coach seats in the Iranian airline. Well, it turns out now that this coffin, Soleimani’s coffin was later put on the hood of a Chevrolet truck — not a Toyota, a Chevrolet truck — for part of his funeral procession. So Chevy got some product placement here, edging out Toyota, which is...

We are happy to have here with us the president of the United States, Donald Trump. It’s so great to have you back here, sir. Thank you for joining us. THE PRESIDENT: Well, thank you, Rush, very much. RUSH: Okay. I have had a lot of people say to me — they’re reacting to the media reaction of the action we took, that you took against the Quds Force commander in Iran. Mr. President, people are being...

    Somewhere around the middle of the decade, Gene Simmons famously declared to all who would listen that "rock'n'roll is finally dead". Pointing the finger at file-sharing for what he called the "murder" of the genre, he railed against modern technology and what he perceived as the decade's lack of talent, decrying the absence of a "next Bob Dylan" in modern music's landscape. But pay no attention to uncle Gene. Firstly, he's been saying this sort of thing since 1993, and we all know how the 90s panned out in terms of rock's legacy. Just because Kiss failed to make a...

    RUSH: You may not believe me on this, but don’t doubt me. They’re panicking big time on the left. They are panicking over Pelosi not sending the articles over to the Senate. One of her big witnesses in the Schiff committee has written a piece claiming, “You can’t even say he’s been impeached yet if you don’t send those articles over there.” And then there are two polls out today that finally reflect what we all know to be true. JOHNNY DONOVAN: And now, from sunny South Florida, it’s Open Line Friday! RUSH: Yes siree, wrapping up yet another barnstorming...

    Toward the beginning of Thursday's Democratic presidential primary debate, the seven candidates went after the current state of the economy, something the President Trump has repeatedly lauded during his presidency. Former Vice President Joe Biden said that despite the growing economy, the middle class was suffering. "The middle class is getting killed; the middle class is getting crushed," former Vice President Joe Biden argued. "The working class has no way up, as a consequence of that," he added. Biden also cited a statistic, saying that 40 percent of the farmers in the Midwest couldn't pay their bills last year. Pete...
