Save the Nation for 05/14/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/05/21/gop-seek-not-phony-bipartisanship-save-the-nation Fri, 14 May 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Riddle me this: Why would Republicans fall for the Democrats' age-old ploy of pressuring them into working on "bipartisan" legislation that will only advance the Democratic agenda and damage the nation?</p> <p>Indeed, what's the point in the GOP puffing up its chest about ousting Liz Cheney from her House leadership position if they're just going to turn around and behave like never-Trumpers by caving on President Biden's agenda? Why would they play footsy with the most militantly leftist party in American history? That can't possibly be good for America, nor can it be good for their political fortunes, as voters don't want them to be spineless wimps.<p>Updated: Fri May 14, 2021</p> b1e4ab3c4cc900704909d2f0f4757ee1 Calling on 'Moderate' Democrats for 05/07/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/05/21/calling-on-moderate-democrats Fri, 07 May 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Everyone knows President Joe Biden ran as a moderate and is governing as a leftist radical, yet we see little evidence of Democrats, including the liberal media, breaking ranks from him. Why?</p> <p>I've previously written about the lack of Democrats' dissent from their party's undeniable extremism and have always been met with the response that they don't dissent because there are no longer any moderate Democrats. Yet when I talk to my Democratic friends, they vehemently deny that they personally are extremists. Are they, or might they just as well be?<p>Updated: Fri May 07, 2021</p> 51cb46acbe42040bd2e0118125da7d0b Team Biden Intends to Never Let Its Manufactured Crises Go to Waste for 04/30/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/04/21/team-biden-intends-to-never-let-its-manufactured-crises-go-to-waste Fri, 30 Apr 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>My major takeaway from President Biden's joint address to Congress is that he and his handlers are continuing to employ the Democrats' primary strategy from the Obama years: Never let a crisis go to waste.</p> <p>To scare the American people into accepting his reckless spending proposals, Biden is leveraging the pandemic, which means he is framing it as still hot, raging and dangerous, while immodestly taking undeserved credit for the progress that we've made.<p>Updated: Fri Apr 30, 2021</p> 2d6f5dda2c3af36efbf644d8add3b031 The Left's Systemic Exploitation of Race for 04/23/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/04/21/the-lefts-systemic-exploitation-of-race Fri, 23 Apr 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>When I occasionally complain about the left politicizing race, fellow conservatives often say to me, "Don't worry about this. They've lost all credibility on the issue, trivializing it by overuse. They're getting no traction with it." Oh?</p> <p>You'd have to be blind and deaf to deny that this tactic is working for the left politically and that it has caused great harm. Democrats and the left bring up race every five minutes to demonize Republicans and profit politically. It is nothing more than a raw power grab.<p>Updated: Fri Apr 23, 2021</p> 4659454d546bdd55881a27efed74e30a Biden's Fabled Bipartisanship for 04/16/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/04/21/bidens-fabled-bipartisanship Fri, 16 Apr 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>I haven't seen much humor in life during the past year or so, but one thing that has been uproariously hilarious lately is the orchestrated media narrative that President Joe Biden is bipartisan and conciliatory. Please give me a moment to catch my breath.</p> <p>I think it was Karl Rove who recently observed that the media's effective definition of bipartisan legislation is not that significant numbers of both parties' lawmakers support a bill but that some poll somewhere shows that a large percentage of Americans of each party support some vaguely described initiative, even if zero Republican legislators support the actual bill. You can frame a poll question to get the result you want.<p>Updated: Fri Apr 16, 2021</p> 4bff7172ca0cc676d3a2bd1b6d55e62a Goodbye to My Brother -- for Now for 04/09/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/04/21/goodbye-to-my-brother-for-now Fri, 09 Apr 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Losing Rush has been tough. Until a few very long weeks ago, he was always in my life. Like other siblings growing up in the same home, we shared experiences that were exclusive to us. Our parents instilled in us &#8212; and we thoroughly absorbed &#8212; their Christian values: their love of God; their unconditional love for each other and for us; their belief in moral absolutes, of truth, of right and wrong; the paramount importance of family; the critical necessity of personal character and integrity; the value of human life; and the uncompromising duty to treat others with respect and compassion. No one perfectly succeeds in living out these godly values, but our parents equipped us, lovingly disciplined us and guided us.</p> <p>Though Rush is now known to the world as a consummate talker, what is not widely known is that he didn't start that way. He was first a listener &#8212; an information sponge, quietly inhaling knowledge at the feet of our dad.<p>Updated: Fri Apr 09, 2021</p> 00653bf15a93e01ba84f9302e425d684 Americans Must Never Throw in the Towel for 04/02/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/04/21/americans-must-never-throw-in-the-towel Fri, 02 Apr 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>As we survey our rotting cultural and political landscape, it is tempting, from a worldly perspective, to lose hope for our way of life and our nation.

Leftists don't want unity and compromise, which has been clear since Trump announced his candidacy in 2015. They want total control and submission. <p>Updated: Fri Jan 22, 2021</p> 800aad695cc24b03523c7f5e31d49113 Real Threats to Democracy Still Come From the Left for 01/15/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/01/21/real-threats-to-democracy-still-come-from-the-left Fri, 15 Jan 2021 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>A dark cloud looms over the United States today &#8212; a storm cloud of tyranny.

Romney didn't object to Bash's negative characterization of Trumpism. He merely responded that he believes "Trump will continue to have a substantial influence on the party" and that those other than Trump who are rumored to be GOP presidential candidates in 2024 "are trying to appeal to kind of a populist approach."<p>Updated: Fri Dec 18, 2020</p> 56744afc28e687cbc395fcf2427eb600 Trump Supporters Right to Doubt Election for 12/11/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/12/20/trump-supporters-right-to-doubt-election Fri, 11 Dec 2020 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Some accuse Trump supporters of manufacturing allegations of voter fraud out of whole cloth and resisting the presidential election results in response to their supposed cult leader's wishes.
