Published

The legendary Rush Limbaugh passed away today. He was 70 years old.

Rush was a beloved radio personality, conservative political commentator and author. His radio show The Rush Limbaugh Show has been on radio stations since 1988.

Rush wrote seven books including The Way Things Ought to Be and See, I Told You So, which both made The New York Times Best Seller list. Forbes estimates that Limbaugh makes nearly $100MM a year. Recent Talkers Magazine estimates show a cumulative weekly audience of 15.5 million listeners.

Rush was an inductee of the National Radio Hall of Fame and the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

During the 2020 State of the Union Address, President Donald Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Here is the video of that momentous occasion:

In February 1971, when he was just twenty years old, Limbaugh became a DJ at WIXZ in Pennsylvania.

In 1975, Limbaugh began at KUDL in Kansas City, Missouri.

In 1979, Limbaugh began a job in group sales, working for the Kansas City Royals baseball team.

In 1983, Limbaugh returned to radio at KMBZ in Kansas City. This was the first time Rush used his full real name on the radio.

Next up was KFBK in Sacramento, California, in October 1984. This was the pivotal step in Rush’s career.

In July 1988 Limbaugh began at WABC in New York City.

From 1992 through 1996 Limbaugh had a half-hour television show but he didn’t like TV as much as radio so he gave it up.

In 2001, Limbaugh became almost completely deaf. In order to correct it, he had a cochlear implant in 2001.

TALKERS Magazine has named him No. 1 in its “Heavy Hundred” most important talk show hosts numerous times.

Limbaugh has married on four occasions, the first three ending in divorce. He does not have any children.

He and Kathryn Rogers were married on June 5, 2010.

Though widely known for his political commentary, Limbaugh was also a man of faith. During his Oct. 19, 2020 show, Rush confessed:

I try to remain committed to the idea what’s supposed to happen, will happen when it’s meant to. I mentioned at the outset of this — the first day I told you — that I have personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

It is of immense value, strength, confidence, and that’s why I’m able to remain fully committed to the idea that what is supposed to happen will happen when it’s meant to. There’s some comfort in knowing that some things are not in our hands. There’s a lot of fear associated with that, too, but there is some comfort. It’s helpful … God, is it helpful. It’s helpful to be able to trust and to believe in a higher plan.

Rush’s legacy inspires us to be socially engaged, yes, but may it also make us more aware of a kingdom beyond this earthly one. Rush’s faith brought him confidence and comfort. May his life inspire us toward that same end.

The 90-year Shame of the New York Times

Despite its constant lies, propaganda, and censorship, the New York Times is regarded by many as the ‘newspaper of record,’ offering ‘all the news that’s fit to print’

Published

on

The New York Times deliberately buried the story known as the Terror-Famine, in 1932 and 1933, which astoundingly killed 3.9 to 7.0 million Ukrainians, at least one out of every eight people, perhaps one out of every four people.

The editors at the Times were well aware that the famine was orchestrated by Joseph Stalin who forbade outside food and aid shipments, confiscated household food items, and restricted the mobility of Ukrainian citizens.

What made Stalin do this to a region known as “the world’s breadbasket”? He sought to punish independence-minded Ukrainians, quash anyone who represented a threat to his totalitarian government, and vanquish Ukraine’s small farms in favor of Soviet state-run collectives. Stalin lost no sleep over the legions of emaciated bodies, near death, scratching for any morsel of food they could find.

Maniacal and Mendacious

Why did The New York Times bury this heart-wrenching, world-shaking story? Then, as now, their leftist bent was so intense and so all-encompassing that they couldn’t help themselves. The blunt truth is that they do not care who is hurt as long as socialist/Marxist/communist ideology prevails on earth.

In another 10 years, it will be at least 100 years since the Times and other heavily left-leaning organizations, which today comprise the highly biased ‘mainstream media,’ have been dominant.

In 2121, one hundred years from now, is it realistic to believe that the facade which the mainstream media has foisted on Americans and on free people around the globe will not continue to dominate?

Will their maniacal ideology, somehow, finally be exposed by some new form of information dissemination or some fundamental shift in media coverage?

Sheeple at the Trough

Just how biased and detrimental their slanted news coverage has been to humanity, globally, is difficult to fathom. For decades on end, when you prop up socialist, Marxist, or communist regimes, are you helping anyone?

The mainstream media has held a news and information monopoly for so long, so skillfully, that the facade is not remotely understood by those in its spell, and bitterly denounced by those who see the mainstream press for what it really is. In the long run, truth generally prevails.

Even today, after five years of attempting to prove it, not a shred of evidence indicates that Donald Trump, his administration, or his campaign colluded with Russia.

Still, you have Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, and all the other dolts in Congress who will readily appear on TV and spew lies. They play the ‘talking head’ game with sympathetic hosts and continue the guise, holding sway over those who don’t know how to find out the truth.

A Stranglehold for the Ages

The stranglehold that the Left and the mainstream media has on humanity leads to some intriguing philosophical questions. Even before the mass media came into being, has there always been some entity that enforced its will upon the unwitting masses?

Throughout history, dictators and other rulers imposed their version of the truth on the unwitting masses. Even in societies where news and information was somewhat freely exchanged, has there always been a faction that sought to slant reality and the will of others? It seems likely.

In the 21st century, roughly half of the U.S. and roughly half of the globe are still subject to Leftist manipulation. Despite all the information sources that exist today, why does so much of the world still fall for obviously manufactured and manipulated news?

How can people keep tuning in to CNN or MSNBC, or for that matter the nightly news on ABC, NBC, or CBS? How many times does CBS have to be caught red-handed doctoring the news, slanting stories on 60 Minutes, and laying traps for people like Governor Ron DeSantis, only to be exposed?

And then, within a matter of days, having learned nothing, CBS reverts right back to more of their insidious ways of presenting information.

Living with Perpetual Lies

How often can The New York Times offer a story the latter proves to be completely untrue, and its editors knew was untrue at the time, and yet its readership is unfazed?

How can the Times continue to be regarded by many as the ‘newspaper of record,’ offering ‘all the news that’s fit to print’? What tidal wave of human understanding, once and for all, needs to occur before we universally recognize highly biased reporting sources for what they are?

In the U.K., news publications openly advocate a position, left or right, and don’t play pretend. Consumers understand the bias that each media outlet or newspaper maintains, can read articles, and judge them accordingly.

In the U.S., the mainstream press continues to push lie that they offer an objective, balanced view of what’s happening in the world. How can they continue to do this? Sadly, enough fools buy what they say… lock, stock, and barrel.
