Rush Limbaugh – The Real Great Communicator



Ronald Reagan is known as the great communicator. Maybe that title was given away prematurely. Rush Limbaugh has been the voice for conservatism for over 30 years. His daily talk show is listened to by millions.  The values that he discussed have helped shape the modern conservative movement. That same movement helped elect Donald Trump, President of the United States.

Rush communicated old ideas in a new and fresh way. He made conservativism seem cool.  He welcomed others to engage in the values that he knew built a Nation. Rush was authentic and consistent. He produced a three-hour radio program each day, where he would respond to callers with a transparent interaction that listeners appreciated and felt compelled to support. Rush engendered loyalty and developed a committed following before social media ever was invented.  Rush was an innovator and was a great communicator.

What was the message that Rush Limbaugh communicated, which resonated with his listeners and people worldwide?

The Ideas Rush Communicated:

First, Rush communicated the Greatness of America and Conservatism. Rush understood the goodness in America.  He knew that America was founded on the values of free speech and individual rights. He talked about the dangers of a large government that neglected the desires and wishes of the people. Throughout his long and illustrious career, Rush never wavered in his core convictions and his passion for the American way. He believed in a smaller government, less taxes, a vibrant economy, personal responsibility and accountability, and more freedom.

Second, Rush challenged the status quo.  Further, he challenged his listeners to question what they were being told. Rush is often credited with moving talk radio into the mainstream, but he never forgot to challenge the mainstream.   He would ask his listeners to really analyze what was happening around them.  He asked the listeners to pay attention to the decisions of those that led the country.  One ability that Rush possessed was the ability to look through the smoke and mirrors of the mainstream and uncover the truth of strategies, behaviors, and attitudes of leaders who had forgotten “we the people.”  People listen to Rush not just because he could make the listener laugh but rather because he could make the listener think and process the truth of government interactions and decisions.

Third, Rush called on his listeners to become engaged in the political process and conversation. Many current lawmakers credit Rush with influencing them to become involved in the American political landscape. Rush believed in the conservative movement.  Daily he challenged his listeners to embrace their beliefs and become engaged so that the result would be that their beliefs could shape their local and national politics. Rush used his platform to communicate, and he asked his listeners to use their platforms to communicate the conservative idea.

Fourth, Rush created a movement through his ideas and style. He started that movement with the concept of “ditto heads,” which symbolized men and women from across the nation that felt the same way about Rush’s ideas of the political system.  Rush triumphed the idea of a movement for and by the people. Rush was always thinking about how the political decisions and changes in Washington impacted the lives of Americans all across the heartland. Maybe this view began with Rush when he started his career in the bootheel of Missouri in the center of the country.

The Legacy of Rush Limbaugh

When Rush passed, millions of people mourned and knew that a consistent voice would be forever silenced. Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis made the decision to lower the flags in the state to honor him during his funeral. Ronald Reagan once stated he knew that many called him a great communicator, and he responded that he just communicated great ideas. Rush indeed was a great communicator, and he communicated great ideas. He communicated those ideas repeatedly in creative and new ways, which has evolved into the modern conservative movement that has continued to make American great.

What is the State of our Union?

… if the so-called President cannot deliver the State of the Union address?



If Joe Biden gives a State of the Union address sometime this March, it will be late, based on precedence, but still in accordance with an 87-year tradition. All of which brings up the question: if Joe Biden does not deliver or cannot deliver a State of the Union address, is he truly the president?

In 38 days, he has not held a full press conference. Each of us who frequent Politicrossing and read the articles has known for quite a while that poor old Joe lacks the cognitive capability to handle the job. He is a mere puppet to a cabal of Leftists who want to irrevocably reshape America, and not in a good way.

So, the question arises, if Joe Biden does not deliver a State of the Union address this March, or, let’s say, even in February 2022, given that he lasts long enough, does anyone seriously believe he is the functioning president of the United States?

A President by any Other Name

If he does offer a State of the Union address this March, or next February, and he messes up terribly, as many of us suspect will happen, other than temporarily claiming the title, is he actually our president? If one lacks the capability to address the nation, with both houses of Congress, and the Supreme Court Justices in attendance, who exactly is leading our country? His handlers will claim, “COVID concerns.” Okay, then present to the camera in the East Room of the White House. “No” to that idea?

How long can the mainstream media continue to cover for him? How long can they avoid the issue altogether? If he does somehow manage to deliver the SOTU, how will the libstream media machine spew their propaganda when everyone, from all sides of the political spectrum, witnesses the undeniable elder abuse?

In other countries, Australia for one, Biden is not getting a free pass. “It’s clear to me at the least that U.S. President Joe Biden is struggling with dementia and is clearly not up to the task he’s been sworn in to do,” said Sky News host Cory Bernardi when asked to give his views of Biden’s performance in the early weeks of his administration.

Bernardi added, quite simply, “Never before has the leader of the Free World been so cognitively compromised.” What recognizable journalist or reporter among the mainstream media in the U.S. has said the same? Where are you Lester Holt, David Muir, Norah O’Donnell, Jake Tapper, Anderson Cooper, Brooke Baldwin, Wolf Blitzer, Jim Acosta, Joy Reid, Rachel Maddow, ad infinitum? “Cat got your tongue?”

Is observation of the obvious too much for you to acknowledge?

No Surprise

The Democrats knew well in advance that Biden would not be able to continue for very long at the level required for the job. That never mattered to them. Joe Biden was nothing more than a vehicle for their side to gain power.

Whether or not you object to the way in which the election occurred, with the gross irregularities, the terrible reality is that a mentally unfit man and his unworthy vice president are in office, and other people are calling the shots, be they Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, Valerie Jarrett, John Brennan, George Soros, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, or whomever.

The 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution clarifies presidential succession if the president dies, resigns, or is removed from office. It establishes how and when the vice president becomes president. However, the vile Nancy Pelosi, and other plotters on the Left, might not need the 25th Amendment to remove Biden.

It’s likely that he, or his wife, or his greedy family, will do so themselves when it is apparent that his continuing on will be an embarrassment to everyone, most of all themselves.

Waiting in the Wings

Some people speculate that Nancy Pelosi’s true intent in relation to the 25th Amendment is to remove Kamala Harris, before she names a VP, should she ascend to the presidency. There’s plenty in Harris’ past to disqualify her.

Once both Biden and Harris are removed from office, guess who gets to be the president of the United States of America? That’s right: The person who so eagerly tore up President Trump’s brilliant State of the Union address in February of 2020, none other than the vindictive, power-crazed, authoritarian wannabe, Nancy Pelosi.
