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.

It is a serious question for the next four months. Who do we want answering the phone at 2 A.M.

PolitiCrossing founder Chris Widener makes the case that Harris should invoke the 25th Amendment so we don’t have a doddering fool trying to wake up to save America. Harris with her faculties is better than Joe without them, and it is Obama and his crew making decisions anyway.

AND… He tells us why it doesn’t give Kamala any more chance of beating Donald Trump… Watch below:
