Don't bet on it. Their latest dodge is blaming the border crisis, which they created, on the climate crisis, which they invented.</p> <p>A Politico article is headlined, "It's Not a Border Crisis. It's a Climate Crisis." That's a convenient twofer. Never let an opportunity to blame a crisis on climate change go to waste. Well played.</p> <p>But to the left, I guess the border catastrophe isn't a crisis. How could you support open borders and think that the invasion by invitation is a crisis? How could America-resenting leftists regard the influx of millions of new Democrat voters a crisis? It would be like the Democrats being apoplectic over federal spending. Nope. Not gonna happen. If only these migrants knew that leftist policies are on the way to turning this country into a socialist state &#8212; you know, the kind they're escaping from.<p>Updated: Fri Jul 23, 2021</p> ab00fd100b54e245b9289df4c9a23ede American Marxism for 07/16/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/07/21/american-marxism Fri, 16 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Most people sense that America is under assault by America-hating forces and worry that our freedoms are actually in jeopardy. Mark Levin's new book, "American Marxism," confirms those fears, exposes the chilling aims and methods of these malicious groups, and provides a blueprint to restore America to a path of recovery.</p> <p>Levin has a gift for distilling abstract ideas into understandable terms for lay consumption. I've personally written and discussed many of the ideas he addresses in this compelling book but had not considered the term "counterrevolution" to describe what we're witnessing.</p> <p>He is exactly right. This is a counterrevolution to the American revolution, and horrifyingly, "It is devouring our society and culture, swirling around our everyday lives, and ubiquitous in our politics, schools, media, and entertainment." He is also correct that this disturbing insurrection is no longer a fringe movement but is in the mainstream of our culture and institutions.<p>Updated: Fri Jul 16, 2021</p> 44d88c0218b4133723b0317abb25e192 Who Are the Real Bullies on Race? for 07/09/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/07/21/who-are-the-real-bullies-on-race Fri, 09 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>As absurd, extreme and reckless as the American left has been on race, and despite growing public disapproval of their antics, they are doubling down rather than pulling back.</p> <p>On the Fourth of July, Utah's Black Lives Matter chapter described the American flag as "a symbol of hatred."</p> <p>"When we Black Americans see this flag we know the person flying it is not safe to be around," it declared. "When we see this flag we know the person flying it is a racist. When we see this flag we know that the person flying it lives in a different America than we do. When we see this flag, we question your intelligence. We know to avoid you. It is a symbol of hatred."<p>Updated: Fri Jul 09, 2021</p> b7b57981c2305dc9cdd20adc031f25f9 On a Collision Course with National Disaster for 07/02/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/07/21/on-a-collision-course-with-national-disaster Fri, 02 Jul 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>If I were leading President Joe Biden's central committee and my goal were to destroy America as founded and ensure that it lose its distinction as the world's freest and most powerful nation, I doubt I could concoct a superior strategy than adopting the Biden administration's message and policy agenda.</p> <p>The administration is creating total societal chaos, fomenting disorder and undermining the rule of law at every turn. As the first duty of government is to protect and defend its citizens, we might be alarmed to consider that the administration is engaged in a multipronged strategy to do the opposite. It is shrinking our military, which defends against foreign threats. It is at war with law enforcement, which ensures domestic tranquility, and it is destroying our southern border. It is systematically destroying our liberty and prosperity.</p> <p><span class="column--highlighted-text">Could there be a better formula for societal and national destruction?

He simply will not do. His offense? Unswervingly honoring his deeply held, and constitutionally protected, religious beliefs.</p> <p>We've all heard of Phillips and his travails. Leftist bullies have been tormenting him for years, beginning in 2012, when the Colorado Civil Rights Commission targeted him for refusing to make a custom-designed cake to celebrate a same-sex wedding.</p> <p>After several setbacks in various tribunals, Phillips was finally vindicated in a 7-to-2 U.S. Supreme Court ruling holding that the state of Colorado had shown "clear and impermissible hostility" toward Phillips' religious convictions in violation of his First Amendment rights.<p>Updated: Fri Jun 18, 2021</p> 5e1c0fc38a568f5d8dc1674d83b72451 Kamala Harris Just Keeps Getting Worse for 06/11/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/06/21/kamala-harris-just-keeps-getting-worse Fri, 11 Jun 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p>No matter how mentally diminished President Joe Biden is, you have to be horrified by who waits in the wings should he leave office before the expiration of his term.</p> <p>Unfortunately, one of the many consequences of Biden's mental decline is an impairment of judgment that manifests itself in such reckless decisions as putting Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of the border. It is like making a colicky infant the goalie of a professional hockey team. If Biden were more alert, I would suspect it was his way of seeking revenge against Harris and those who foisted her on to his presidential ticket.</p> <p>Harris has neither a clue nor a rudder on this critically important issue, which by any fair measure, now must be considered a crisis. She is a dedicated progressive, and progressives are flagrantly open borders-oriented. But even more, she is a political opportunist and will say anything to salvage her hemorrhaging reputation. <p>Updated: Fri Jun 11, 2021</p> 0fc7778e3b641303be9133ec91ab66f0 Biden's Disgraceful Exploitation of the Tulsa Race Massacre for 06/04/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/06/21/bidens-disgraceful-exploitation-of-the-tulsa-race-massacre Fri, 04 Jun 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>This may shock and amaze you if your blinders are on, but President Biden is not only not a uniter; he is actively trying to divide Americans on race &#8212; and other issues &#8212; purely for raw political power. There is no other plausible explanation.</p> <p>During former President Trump's entire presidency and ever since, we've been bombarded daily with the narrative that he is divisive and a racist. His political opponents and the media distorted his words, such as those he said in the aftermath of the Charlottesville attacks, to paint him as sympathetic to white supremacists. That was always absurd, but it is now largely accepted as conventional wisdom.<p>Updated: Fri Jun 04, 2021</p> b9de7b14ebff12a42c2fa5f7f871ca04 A Hearty Summer Reading Recommendation: 'Armstrong Rides Again!' for 05/28/2021 https://www.creators.com/read/david-limbaugh/05/21/a-hearty-summer-reading-recommendation-armstrong-rides-again Fri, 28 May 2021 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>It's been a rough year, to say the least, with a global pandemic, the election of the most dangerous, leftist presidential administration ever, and a media and institutional elite in this country who are essentially Marxist functionaries. </p> <p>Summer and beach reading might provide some needed relief.

Why would they play footsy with the most militantly leftist party in American history?

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.

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.

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.
