Rush 24/7 Morning Update: Supreme Fight!
Even before President Trump announced his Supreme Court pick the Democrats went to the mattresses. For the second time in modern history, they declared they will filibuster a Supreme Court nominee before they even knew who it was.
Laughingstock Democrats Have Mic Problems
RUSH: The only thing they can do is protest and raise hell and try to make it look like they represent a majority of Americans, but they do not, and the Democrats know it. They show up at the Supreme Court last night to protest everything Trump is doing and the public address microphone doesn't work and they're reduced to singing This Land is Your Land, which nobody can hear anyway.
Childless in San Francisco
RUSH: Do you know what the gay population of San Francisco is? What do you think it is. No, it isn't. It's not 50. It's amazing how low it is.
Anti-Trump “Science” March Won’t Be About Science
RUSH: If you don't understand liberalism, you'll just think these people are a bunch of kooks, and it'll stop there. You'll think it's a bunch of weirdos, and you might even feel sorry for 'em. And you'll sit idly by paying them very little mind as they go about being very effective with this, because they are convincing young skulls full of mush that all of this gunk is real.
You Cannot Appease Liberals, President Trump!
RUSH: Would you like an illustration of what I mean by Donald Trump not being ideological and how it's a problem? Liberal, conservative, that's not in his lexicon, folks. I'm not offering this as a criticism. It's just a truth. It's something that, if you want to understand Trump, then there's no better deconstructor of Trump and explainer of Trump who's not in the inner circle than me.
Trump’s Executive Order Isn’t a Travel Ban
RUSH: This is not a travel ban, folks. All this is is a temporary attempt to further vet certain refugees from six countries and Syria where the vast majority of terrorist activity has come from. It is an effort to keep America safe. It is also Trump fulfilling a campaign promise.
Democrats Will Go Nuclear on Any Trump SCOTUS Pick, So Choose a Conservative!
RUSH: If the Democrats are gonna go nuclear from the get-go, then you may as well nominate the full-fledged, 1000% conservative. Bring it on! Take off the gloves. Let's get the fists ready to go and get this administration up to speed on just what liberalism is, who liberals are, and how to oppose them.
The Statue of Liberty Has Nothing to Do with Immigration
RUSH: The statue was not intended to recognize immigration. It was intended to recognize liberty and freedom. If you think they're intertwined, don't be misled.
Journalism Professor: Brady Worse Than Kaepernick
RUSH: Tom Brady owes no one an explanation on who he supports politically.
When Are We Going to Learn?
RUSH: Sally Yates and every other Obama appointee should have been gone within 30 minutes of Trump taking the oath of office. That is his fault for not doing so. I don't know why he didn't do so, but I have a theory.
Rush 24/7 Stack of Stuff
RUSH: No longer is this just gonna be a long list of stories that I might mention on the program. Now, you will get specifically the stories that I talk about on the program and a select list of a few others that I intended to get to but ran out of time. It's going to be more of a real-time base feature rather than just a generic list of places that I go to prep the show.
Morning Update: Outrage!
On Friday, President Trump signs an executive order, effectively halting the flood of Syrian refugees into America. Indefinitely. It also suspended, temporarily, immigration from six other countries where ISIS is running amok: Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, and Yemen. The suspension is in effect while the administration reviews the immigration “vetting” process.
Poll: Only 33% Oppose Trump’s Temporary Refugee Ban
RUSH: Okay, we got some polling data in on the Trump executive order. Rasmussen: 33% — only 33% — oppose the ban. Only 33%. Now, you compare that with the way the media has portrayed these protesters and the movement and the supposed national outrage to this.
What You’ll Learn from Bret Baier’s Book on Ike
RUSH: It took Bret three years to research and write this book, what with everything else that he has on his plate, and it's a serious, scholarly effort. It is really well done.
Mark Cuban: Twitter Isn’t the Real World
RUSH: Here's a guy who thrives on Twitter telling everybody it's not the real world. And it's important because people who tweet all the time really think they're making a difference.
The Media Can’t Keep Up with Trump
RUSH: The left is never going to fully gain the momentum. They're never going to totally gain the narrative because Trump has the ability to reclaim it any time he wants.
Liberal Totalitarians Target Tom Brady
RUSH: This stuff frosts me. This just infuriates me. And what further infuriates me is that so many of these people are afraid of conservatives. They're afraid to be tied to conservatives. They're afraid to associate with conservatives because this is what happens to you in the media if a conservative is your friend.
When Liberals Lose, They Blame Democracy
RUSH: Remember in the early stages of this program, long before even Fox News came up, the left started worrying that maybe there was too much democracy, maybe there was too much opinion from the American people, there was too much involvement from the American people. The left always does this when they're losing.
Republicans Will Be Trump’s Biggest Obstacle
RUSH: This is the official policy of Trump opposition to simply resist everything because that's all they can do. They can't stop it unless the Republicans cave and join them. If the Republicans stay unified, House and Senate, and in support of the Trump agenda then there's nothing the Democrats can do.
The Left’s Resistance to Trump Isn’t Specific
RUSH: If you think all of this outrage and all of these protests are spontaneous and specific to the elements of this executive order, you need to stop thinking that, because that is not what any of this is about. What all of this is about is the preordained, prearranged Democrat Party strategy of unseating Donald Trump and opposing him. It's nothing more than total resistance to everything.
