Rush Limbaugh, An American Original

Rush Limbaugh, American Icon & Champion Of Freedom, Dead at 70

Published

on

I remember the first time I listened to Rush Limbaugh. It was the summer of 1992. George Bush the Elder was on his way to losing the Presidency to Bill Clinton, and there was this man, on AM talk radio, eviscerating the left and the enemies of freedom, with aplomb and good cheer. He gave me hope. He made me believe that the cause of freedom would endure, and that the American Dream would make a big comeback.

And boy, was he ever right.

Why? Because inside every human breast beats the living heart of freedom. Inside all of us, is a soul that years to breathe free, and realize its awesome and majestic potential.

And Rush got this in a way no other public figure had since Ronald Reagan.

Rush used to say that when people on the left demanded that he give equal time to opposing viewpoints, that he WAS equal time. And he was right.

In 1994, Rush rallied the nation behind Newt Gingrich and his daring bid to win back the House for the Republican Party for the first time in 40 years. The Republican Party won the House and the Senate, and America was under conservative governance for the first time since the early 80s when President Reagan and the Republican Senate worked with the southern Boll Weevil Democrats in the House to pass his tax cutting and military build-up agenda.

Rush Limbaugh made that possible. When Bush the Younger was elected, and the Democrat Hate Machine (DHM) revved up into high gear, Rush Limbaugh mocked their supercilious leaders into inchoate rage, and this, in no small measure, was a big part of  what allowed Bush to govern as a conservative for the first 5 years of his Presidency.

And it was Rush Limbaugh, giving his stamp of approval to the insurgent candidacy of Donald Trump, that made it possible for Trump to vanquish the deep field of 16 Republican office holders and seize the nomination, and finally the Presidency in 2015 and 2016.

Trump was the first candidate since Reagan to truly excite the American people, and make them believe that America was an exceptional place, and worth fighting for.

Rush was the undisputed King of Talk Radio. He had 30 million people a week listen to his show. And his influence on his audience was enormous and unparalleled. Day after day, and week after week, he showed them that America was still a great country, the greatest in the whole wide world. He made them believe in themselves and their destiny once again.

And Rush was a winner. He won at the game of business. He won at the game of Talk Radio. He won at the game of living a great life. He was the American Dream personified.

And he is irreplaceable.

God bless Rush Limbaugh.

God bless his family.

Go bless all the people he inspired to create the counterculture that is conservative media.

And God bless America.

And to those who have showered him with hate: he would wish you well, and he would wish you to understand your own greatness, and that of the nation that more than any other makes it possible for you to realize it.

God bless you, Rush.

Prevailing in Turbulent Times

You can remain confident despite the chaos all around you.

Published

on

Everywhere you look, proud and patriotic Americans are feeling forlorn over the worsening conditions in our society. Concurrently, many life-long career professionals are losing confidence in their ability to stay competitive in our rapidly changing world amidst a rocky economy.

In actuality, no one in society has a long-term lock on any market or inside niche, and no “body of information” affords a strategic competitive advantage for very long. The reality of our times is that everyone is feeling at least a little unsure of themselves, and in that sense everyone is in the same boat.

Besieged by information and communication overload, it is easy to feel anything but confident. After all, your ability to keep pace is all but impossible.

Professionally, you can remain confident, however, despite the pace of change.

Taking Command

What do confident people do to maintain confidence, independent of the rate of change to which they’re exposed? And. how do they maintain a sense of breathing space along the way? Here are variety of approaches:

* Jump Starting: Initiating a small part of a project or activity in advance (getting a sneak preview) to gain familiarity just before the project or activity actually begins.

* Total Immersion: Surrounding yourself with everything you need to fully engage in the project. This could involve assembling resources, people, and equipment, as well as ensuring that you have a quiet, secure environment, free of distractions.

* Managing the Beforehand: Living with the ever-present realization that change is continually forthcoming and, thus, preparing for activities or events in advance.

* Leapfrogging: Recognizing that while you can’t keep up with every little thing that happens in your industry or profession, periodically you can leapfrog over the developments of the last several months and “catch up,” in a manner of speaking.

* Picking Your Spots: Related to leapfrogging, pick your spots in the future, say six months, whereby you want to have a new product or service introduced, or have some new technology fully integrated into your operations, and so forth.

* Go Cold Turkey: Simply suspend operations and engage in whatever it takes to incorporate a new way of doing things. This is enhanced by ensuring that you’ll have no disturbances, by bringing in outside experts, and by assembling any other resources you need to succeed.

* Days of Grace: After deciding to tackle a new project or to implement major change, build in “days of grace” and allow yourself to proceed at half to three-quarters speed. Acknowledge that assimilating the new challenges and changes will take time, and will likely involve some disruption. So, don’t expect to achieve your normal productivity or effectiveness… for now.

Small Victories

Finally, and this is vital, in all cases recognize the importance of continually seeking small victories.

This is Why the Left Hates You

“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.” Jesus

Published

It is obvious that the left has become a venomous mob, attacking anyone and anything in their path toward progressivism. Those who loudly proclaim themselves against hate, are indeed the worst perpetrators of it. There is a reason why. It is a Cosmic Conflict at its core. PolitiCrossing Founder Chris Widener takes five minutes to explain the following bible verses (Video below):

John 15:18-21 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me.”

Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
