A Perfect Summation Of A Great Man


Victor Davis Hanson: This Was the Core of Rush Limbaugh's Genius


Rush Limbaugh created modern national talk radio as we now know it. For over three decades he kept at rapt attention — live from noon to 3 p.m. on weekdays — the largest conservative audience in broadcast history. More than 15 million tuned in each week.

Last week, 32 years and more than 23,000 hours of on-air commentary after he went national in August 1988, Limbaugh died of lung cancer at age 70.

By the 1990s he had become the voice, literally and iconically, of the conservative movement and its hot/cold liaisons with the Republican Party. Limbaugh was hated by the left because he was deadly effective in fighting them, and he was feared at times by the Republican establishment — because he could also be deadly effective in fighting it.

Limbaugh had an uncanny sense of what conservative populism could do — such as abruptly end Barack Obama’s control of Congress after just two years in the sweeping Tea Party midterm election of 2010.

He also instinctively sensed what it should not do: endorse Ross Perot’s quixotic third-party surge of 1992 that eventually would split the conservative vote and ensure Bill Clinton the presidency with just 43 percent of the popular vote.

Limbaugh was a master comedian. His pauses, intonations and mock tones were far funnier than those of our contemporary regulars on late-night television. He was a gifted mimic, an impersonator, with as wide a repertoire as masters of the past such as Vaughn Meader, David Frye and Rich Little. Yet Limbaugh worked mostly behind the microphone, without the aid of an onstage presence.

During the 2009 Republican depression over the Obama craze, it was a lonely, much-caricatured Limbaugh who revived Republicans. He famously announced — to the furor of the left and the chagrin of what within a decade would become the NeverTrump right — that he wanted the newly inaugurated president and his agenda to “fail.”

At the time of such heresy, a deified Obama was gloating over the Democrats’ “elections have consequences” control over the House and Senate.

Limbaugh was a natural impromptu public speaker. He could rev up a crowd in the fashion of a Ronald Reagan or Donald Trump. True, he was also a natural actor, but in part because he read widely, prepped constantly and outworked his opponents.

The cheap postmortem attacks on Limbaugh were as expected as they were tasteless. In his thousands of hours of live broadcasting, did he on rare occasions say the wrong things? He admitted that he had, regretted it, and often apologized for it.

He certainly never took out progressive insurance — the kind of occasional triangulation with the left that wins some conservatives exemption from the cancel culture.

This week, many would have preferred to read less about what Limbaugh had apologized for and more about the apologies Joe Biden never offered for his lifelong compendium of racial insensitivity and prejudicial bombast — all to be contextualized in service to his “correct” thinking.

Limbaugh’s canon was never to talk down to or insult the base. It was natural for him because he grew up with, knew intimately and felt most comfortable with traditional middle America. Deplorables and clingers trusted him to stay Rush. They were assured there would never be a sudden about-face, confessional or sellout.

Limbaugh knew how to golf with the rich but also knew what it was like to be fired often and unemployed with the deplorables.

He grew increasingly frustrated that the naive right never fully understood the mind of the left. In “Groundhog Day” fashion, conservatives, he believed, became shocked on cue that any means were not just necessary for the left but ethically justified, given that the ends were global justice delivered by supposed moral superiors.

For someone with a reputation for mockery, I never heard Limbaugh in private or in correspondence fixate on his enemies or blast his former friends. Mostly he laughed them off, and instead turned to what he told hundreds of those who knew him: “How can I help you in any way?”

Limbaugh was confused by the NeverTrump Republican virulence. He had dutifully fought for the four Bush election bids. He had loyally supported their three combined terms.

And he tried to empower the failed and inept McCain and Romney efforts. His theory was that after the primaries were over, winning 50 percent of what you wanted in a general election was better than nothing.

The amnesiac NeverTrumpers didn’t just fail to return the courtesy, he believed, but never even worried that they should have.

Limbaugh’s was a quintessential American success story. It is impossible to imagine any other country producing either him or his career. We are mourning for Rush, but also for ourselves. We are going to miss him and need him more, not less, each day that he is now silent.

Hunter Has Problems Or More Likely Joe Needs To Fix Them!


Emails: Hunter Biden Accused of Smuggling Ex-Stripper Into Building Owned by Swedish Government


A few weeks ago, conservative actor Kevin Sorbo got himself into the soup when he “addiction-shamed” Hunter Biden.

“Tell Hunter Biden he forgot to pick up his lap pipe. I mean crack top. I mean, I… you know the thing,” Sorbo tweeted Feb. 6, a wisecrack that was met with a whirlwind of indignation.

One of the most retweeted rejoinders was from “BrooklynDad_Defiant!,” a prominent and prolific member of the tweet-before-you-think left. To be fair, Brooklyn Dad wrote that he had struggled with addiction (and beaten it, to his credit) and found Sorbo’s flippancy to be inappropriate.

“Like Hunter Biden, I’ve struggled with addiction in my life, going on 18 yrs clean and sober,” he wrote. “Unlike Hunter Biden, I didn’t have to do it while has-beens like @ksorbs tried to publicly ridicule my struggles with addiction. Do better, jackass.”

This got a lot of play at the time and the general consensus was that Sorbo had been digitally disgraced. It stuck in my mind, however, because it completely misses the reason why we should focus on Hunter Biden’s problems with drugs, alcohol and women — and it has nothing to do with gawking at debauchery and having a laugh at his expense. I was reminded of it again on Wednesday.

According to a report from Swedish newspaper Expressen, translated by Breitbart, emails obtained by Swedish media sources accuse Hunter Biden of smuggling guests into a Washington, D.C., building owned by the Swedish government where he leased office space starting in 2017.

Not only were after-hours guests prohibited from entering the House of Sweden — an “exclusive modernist building,” Breitbart’s Chris Tomlinson notes — but one of those guests was a former stripper named Lunden Roberts with whom Biden would go on to have a child out of wedlock.

The House of Sweden hosts the Swedish Embassy, as well as other countries’ diplomatic offices — and according to emails obtained by Expressen, they weren’t entirely pleased with Biden bringing guests around after hours.

“It has again come to my attention that it appears that visitors have gained access to number 507 through the northern entrance after office hours – as we have 24/7 video surveillance throughout the building,” the real estate representative for the building wrote in one email, Breitbart reported.

“Help us keep the building safe by following House of Sweden’s rules.”

Biden shot back, tacitly accusing them of racism. (Roberts is white, but some others involved apparently were not.)

“If NN has a problem with my guests’ race or attire, I think we should all sit down and talk about it with a lawyer present,” he wrote, according to Breitbart.

As for Roberts, Biden told real estate representatives she was a basketball coach and said his daughter (as well as former President Barack Obama’s daughter) was on her team, Breitbart reported.

Roberts was, at one point, a basketball player for Arkansas State. However, this wasn’t the capacity in which she was serving in 2017.

According to the New York Post, Roberts met Biden while she was a stripper at the Mpire Club, one of Hunter Biden’s favorite haunts in Washington. Roberts got pregnant roughly around the time Hunter Biden broke up with Hallie Biden, the widow of his brother Beau Biden.

Biden broke things off with Roberts and fought tooth-and-nail to avoid taking a paternity test — all with some fairly impressive legal firepower. He lost out and, lo and behold, the child was his.

But this is Hunter Biden’s private life, right? Well, it depends.

It’s sordid, sure. There’s circumstantial evidence he cheated on his brother’s widow (as well as other allegations he did the same thing with other women). In the midst of all this, The New York Times ran a puff piece on him that painted Biden as a sensitive artist trying to find himself, barely mentioning he’d waged a vicious battle against a woman who bore his child and refusing to turn over financial documents or scarcely acknowledging the baby as his own.

And yes, Hunter Biden has addiction problems. The problem is that those problems have manifested themselves in an incredible sense of entitlement that’s been enabled by those around him.

In May of 2013, Hunter Biden was commissioned as an ensign in the Navy Reserve. This was a curious development for several reasons.

First, Biden had to get an age waiver. The maximum age to serve in the Navy Reserve is usually 40; Biden was 43. He had to get a second waiver because of a drug conviction in his younger years. Finally, he got what was known as a “direct commission,” described by political cartoonist Jack Ohman as “a little-known entry point to get into the military.”

Ohman should know, considering he was denied an age waiver to enter the Navy Reserves in 2002 despite the fact he was younger than Biden was and aced a battery of tests and interviews, according to an illuminating piece Ohman wrote in the Sacramento Bee.

A direct commission is “a way for experienced professionals to serve; it’s mostly done for doctors, nurses and dentists. But age 40 is pretty much the brick wall for those outside of those disciplines.”

Hunter didn’t fit into that mold. It didn’t matter much anyway, because he tested positive for cocaine a month after he was commissioned and was discharged. He blamed it on a spiked cigarette he bummed.

Despite a long history of addiction and other personal issues, Biden kept on scoring well-remunerated positions, including a spot on the board of Ukrainian energy concern Burisma. In a New Yorker profile, he admitted using cocaine while he was on the board there.

In 2016, Hunter Biden wrecked two rental cars in California and Arizona; in the latter case, a crack pipe and white-powder residue was found inside. Biden was also suspected of smoking crack inside the VIP room at a strip club in Washington, D.C., in 2018 — again, while he was on the board of Burisma. According to the New York Post, Hunter Biden spent “thousands and thousands of dollars in the [strip club’s] VIP rooms,” paying with “credit cards that didn’t have his name on it.” The club usually refuses cards without names.

This isn’t even to mention his current tax case. Or the kerfuffle over his laptop. Or the pictures on his laptop. Or the fact social media giants blocked the paper that broke the story about his laptop from posting about it — or anything.

Yes, Hunter Biden has serious issues, both with substances and with his treatment of women. God willing, he gets help for that. However, Biden has made himself a public figure through his political work — and that’s why his addictions are fair game.

Hunter Biden’s career is making money off of his last name. Since he entered the working world, his employment has always felicitously aligned with his father’s legislative interests — whether it be his stint with Delaware-based banking giant MBNA to his stint with Burisma. It’s worth noting that in the two years since Burisma became a major story, no one has been able to come up with any substantive contribution Hunter Biden made that justified his $50,000-a-month salary.

In the meantime, Biden took on many of these jobs when circumstantial evidence seems to indicate his personal issues should have precluded him from the work.

No, sneaking an ex-stripper into the House of Sweden — a secure, sensitive building — doesn’t make you a bad person. Tacitly accusing its managers of bigotry for complaining comes closer, but it’s still nothing that should induce apoplexy.

The problem is the wider pattern. Hunter Biden is a man with serious issues — and yet, in a field filled with talented, overworking overachievers, he kept getting plum positions despite this dubious history. If you even bother wondering why this was, however, and make your wondering public, it’s attacked as “addiction-shaming.”

Hunter Biden needs to seek all the help he can get. He also needs to seek employment far away from Washington, from politics and the White House.

NOT MENTALLY FIT: Three Dozen House Democrats Demand Biden Relinquish Control of Nuclear Codes

Biden is a propped up puppet.




take our poll - story continues below
  • POLL: Will Republican Senators vote to impeach Trump and ban him from running in 2024? 

President-imposed Joe Biden is already being undermined by Democrats who want him out of the picture and replaced with an individual who does not have severe cognitive impairments. 

Three dozen House Democrats have signed a letter urging for the nuclear codes to be removed from Biden as they attempt to neuter the illegitimate Commander-in-Chief before his dementia leads to a potential disaster.

In their letter, the disingenuous Democrats framed it as if Trump, who pulled troops out of many different countries, was the reason they were taking this order even though he was just ousted from office.

Vesting one person with this authority entails real risks,” states the letter, which was led by Rep. Jimmy Panetta (D-CA). “Past presidents have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concern about the president’s judgment.“

“While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so,” the letter continues. “The military is obligated to carry out the order if they assess it is legal under the laws of war. Under the current posture of U.S. nuclear forces, that attack would happen in minutes.”

The House Democrats are proposing that they make launching the nuclear missiles conditional on approval from the vice president and House speaker, “neither of whom can be removed by the president if they disagree — to concur with a launch order.”

Big League Politics has reported about Democrats setting the stage, even before he was installed as President, for Biden to be removed from power due to his declining mental facilities:

Briahna Joy Gray, who was the press chief for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign before he bowed out after several disappointing primary appearances, believes that former Vice President Joe Biden will not last until November’s general election.

“Bernie was too kind to go after Biden, but it’s coming,” she wrote in a tweet responding to a clip of Fox News host Tucker Carlson questioning Biden’s mental fitness.

“Either Dem leadership cares more about maintaining a corporate status quo than getting rid of Trump, or they’re planning to replace Joe – adopting a pretty fast and loose relationship with representative Democracy. Lose lose,” she added.

The Democrats are making preparations for Vice President Kamala Harris to usurp power. This may have been the plan all along, with Harris becoming the first woman president despite her lack of qualifications and extreme unpopularity. This is female privilege at its worst.
