Well, so am I, the difference being that I really am, whereas she's cynically pretending to, to show her mock concern over his mental state.</p> <p>Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the rest of the congressional Democratic cabal have treated President Trump abominably, and it's getting old. Do they assume Americans have endless patience for their ongoing investigation charade?</p> <p>Consider the latest brouhaha between Trump and the Democratic leaders. They were scheduled to meet at the White House on a $2 trillion infrastructure plan when Pelosi decided to poison the punch bowl.<p>Updated: Fri May 24, 2019</p> 47ac29151f84ed13b7a18a09d633924b Democrats Unhinged Over Alabama's Abortion Bill for 05/17/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/05/19/democrats-unhinged-over-alabamas-abortion-bill Fri, 17 May 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Alabama's mostly Republican lawmakers and governor passed a strong abortion ban this week, and liberals are fit to be tied. </p> <p>"Today, I signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, a bill that was approved by overwhelming majorities in both chambers of the legislature," said Gov. Kay Ivey. "To the bill's many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians' deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God."<p>Updated: Fri May 17, 2019</p> 037967af5fc40ad03236d7f69f6dae32 Et Tu, Sen.

Richard Burr, as chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, is doing the bidding of vindictive Democrats in issuing a subpoena to Donald Trump Jr. </p> <p><span class="column--highlighted-text">Burr has joined the Democrats' investigatory vendetta against President Trump, most recently exemplified in the House Judiciary Committee's vote to hold Attorney General Will Barr in contempt of Congress</span>. Democrats claim Barr is in contempt for failing to release an unredacted report by special counsel Robert Mueller, allegedly lying twice to Congress and refusing to appear before the committee. All three claims are absurd on their face and, if heard by an impartial tribunal, will be rejected.</p> <p>Democrats are pounding their chests in fake indignation that Barr lied in his summary of Mueller's report, but in all particulars, his summary tracked with the report, which Mueller affirmed. You can't quite make a case of contempt for lying when the witness told the truth. <p>Updated: Fri May 10, 2019</p> f239071d0cb565b1f1ce9da6b2261b3d The Worm Has Turned on the Democrats for 05/03/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/05/19/the-worm-has-turned-on-the-democrats Fri, 03 May 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>The Democrats and their media colluders are belching last gasps of impotent protest as their dreams of interfering with the 2016 presidential election come to a screeching halt.</p> <p>Through forlorn partisan lenses, they have watched the Mueller report, their joyride vehicle on the glorious highway to impeachment, spring four flat tires, all because of nails they placed on the road themselves. <p>Updated: Fri May 03, 2019</p> 19c591fde204d66611040b12d0bae295 Many University Campuses Are Playgrounds for Insanity for 04/26/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/04/19/many-university-campuses-are-playgrounds-for-insanity Fri, 26 Apr 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>If you think the left hasn't taken over university life in America, you are probably not paying close enough attention or in denial.</p> <p>I'm not just talking about the liberalism of the professors and the core curriculum but about all of college life.

Steve Cohen said on MSNBC's "Hardball," "What he has done to the Constitution and the rule of law is as bad as that fire did to Notre Dame. He's torching the entire structure of government and the people's respect for it. And the Congress needs to act."

First, I read that the Democratic National Committee is refusing to partner with Fox News for the 2020 primary debates. The stated reason, according to DNC Chair Tom Perez? "Recent reporting in the New Yorker on the inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and Fox News has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates," he said. <p>Updated: Fri Apr 05, 2019</p> 2987cdee4dd27a47be4193069b3f3541 Joe Biden's Pathetic Pandering for 03/29/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/03/19/joe-bidens-pathetic-pandering Fri, 29 Mar 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Joe Biden has reached new heights of pandering. He has achieved the Olympic gold in cultural groveling. He must really want to be president.</p> <p>I am always amazed that people think Biden is so transparent and genuine. Yes, he shoots his mouth off before thinking sometimes, as we all do, but way more than a high-profile public official should. But that's more a function of his impulsiveness and arrogance than his authenticity.<p>Updated: Fri Mar 29, 2019</p> dd6e61fff0da1eac4334189e3d5e740b Liberalism Is Dehumanizing for 03/22/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/03/19/liberalism-is-dehumanizing Fri, 22 Mar 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Liberal ideology is rife with inconsistencies, but none is greater than how its supposedly animating motivation &#8212; human compassion &#8212; is contradicted by its devaluation of human life.</p> <p>Liberals have long claimed superior compassion and demonized conservatives as being uncaring.

He said, "The fact of the matter is it was followed on by a guy who's a decent guy, our vice president, who stood before this group of allies and leaders and said, 'I'm here on behalf of President Trump,' and there was dead silence."<p>Updated: Fri Mar 15, 2019</p> 73e9c0018e45cb7082e021b221a0a9c3 Joy Behar Nuances Herself Into the Far Left Corner for 03/08/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/03/19/joy-behar-nuances-herself-into-the-far-left-corner Fri, 08 Mar 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>"The View's" Joy Behar did a masterful job of revealing her political ignorance when she grilled co-host Meghan McCain on why Republicans still support President Donald Trump, given his "treasonous behavior."</p> <p>Behar was referring to Trump's friendly relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his taking Kim at his word when Kim denied any responsibility for the imprisonment and torture of University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier, who died in 2017.<p>Updated: Fri Mar 08, 2019</p> 1be304905fb066567132c200c720d164 Dems' Deceit and Moral Bankruptcy on Abortion for 03/01/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/02/19/dems-deceit-and-moral-bankruptcy-on-abortion Fri, 01 Mar 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Why should anyone be surprised at the left's careening into extremism on abortion? Leftists' position has always been morally bankrupt and deceitful.</p> <p>I am old enough to remember when Barack Obama, in the 2008 presidential campaign, vehemently denied that he had supported infanticide while in the Illinois Senate. Fact-checkers and other Obama defenders came out of the woodwork to defend Obama's moral integrity. What were those facts?</p> <p>Well, in 2001, Obama voted against Illinois' Born-Alive Infants Protection Act in committee, which would have required immediate medical care for any child born as a result of a failed abortion. He even gave a floor speech opposing the bill. But he voted "present" on the actual bill once it passed out of committee. The Illinois Senate passed the bill, but the Illinois House killed it. In 2002, Obama not only voted against the bill in committee and spoke against it on the Illinois Senate floor but also voted "no" on the bill. In 2003, Obama voted against another version of the bill. During the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama ran from this record and even accused Republicans of lying about it. Only after substantial blowback was he forced to issue a statement acknowledging he had earlier misstated his position on the bill.<p>Updated: Fri Mar 01, 2019</p> 982638e2b6163596f1c17603b78facb4 Kudos to Chris Pratt for 02/22/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/02/19/kudos-to-chris-pratt Fri, 22 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>How often have we seen Hollywood celebrities praised as courageous for "coming out" and admitting they're gay? Isn't it far more courageous for people to profess their Christian faith?</p> <p>Hollywood is not a tolerant city. Dominated by activist leftists, it is a culture hostile to dissenting views. We see it in its work product. Most movies and television shows are laced with political messages and politically correct symbolism. The heroes almost always are liberal and promote "progressive" values and causes, and conservatives are depicted as morally degenerate hayseeds or villains. Christians are especially singled out as backward, close-minded crackpots. Sure, there are notable exceptions, such as the TV series "Blue Bloods," which involves a traditional Catholic family of cops that meets weekly for dinner with prayer and conversation that promotes biblical virtues.<p>Updated: Fri Feb 22, 2019</p> 0dd1eface42b5f59775c342a5689cb54 AOC Is No Outlier for 02/15/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/02/19/aoc-is-no-outlier Fri, 15 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>The main problem in American politics is not the obvious polarization but the underlying reasons for it.

Under criticism, the university folded.</p> <p>An outspoken and hard-hitting conservative, Shapiro has been protested and threatened, as well as disinvited by other schools, but it is troubling that a Christian school, especially one that holds itself out as a Bible-believing institution, caved to leftist thought-police bullies rather than promote the free exchange of ideas in the public square.<p>Updated: Fri Feb 08, 2019</p> ee650e9f9893be5ace663b62e2c13b66 Abortion Extremism Exposing Left's Moral Contradictions for 02/01/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/01/19/abortion-extremism-exposing-lefts-moral-contradictions Fri, 01 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>It's horrifying that we are rapidly approaching the kind of culture that God ordered the Israelites to wipe out when he finally allowed them to enter the land he had promised them &#8212; a culture of rampant immorality, idolatry and child sacrifice.</p> <p>For the longest time, the political left insisted that it was not pro-abortion but pro-choice, that it truly wanted to make abortion safe, legal and rare. I never could quite grasp why liberals would care about making it rare if they didn't consider the unborn to be human lives. But that is the position they firmly held &#8212; obviously for political expediency.</p> <p>Their decision to cloak their true intentions in the euphemism of "choice" has always been a calculated strategy to sanitize their actual motives. If they were actually choice advocates, they would inform mothers contemplating abortions about all the risks of the procedure and advise them of alternatives, such as adoption. In practice, in many cases, we've seen just the opposite.<p>Updated: Fri Feb 01, 2019</p> febd674d2c0f13b2fd76965593773c3b Trump and His Supporters Are in This Fight for the Long Haul for 01/25/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/01/19/trump-and-his-supporters-are-in-this-fight-for-the-long-haul Fri, 25 Jan 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>I couldn't care less about the State of the Union address, and I'm hardly panicking about the government shutdown, but I care a great deal that Democrats and the liberal media continue to treat President Trump like a dog, with utter impunity.</p> <p>House Speaker Nancy Pelosi disinvited Trump to deliver the address in the Capitol, falsely citing security concerns when everyone knows she was just joyfully sticking her thumb in his eye and trying to humiliate him.<p>Updated: Fri Jan 25, 2019</p> 5a27cc6c88cc1f6256456e46bf9e1362 Make Your Speech on Your Own Turf, President Trump for 01/18/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/01/19/make-your-speech-on-your-own-turf-president-trump Fri, 18 Jan 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>It is amusing that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claims her desire to delay the State of the Union address is because of security concerns stemming from federal employees' being furloughed over a budget battle caused by her party's refusal to secure this country's southern border.</p> <p>Everyone knows this has nothing to do with security at the Capitol and everything to do with flexing her muscles against President Trump and showing him who's boss.
