Mark Belling, the afternoon drive time host on News/Talk 1130 WISN-AM Milwaukee, filled in for Rush on Open Line Friday. Check out Mark's Stack for links and audio clips.
Rush 24/7 Morning Update: Supermarket Blues
RUSH: My friends, the Washington Post has discovered how unfair life in America is right in their own backyard.
Drive-Bys Say Trump Puts Reporters in Danger
RUSH: Republicans are already getting shot at. Journalists aren't.
Democrats Keep Saying the GOP Health Care Bill Will Kill People
RUSH: This is a lot of Democrats accusing the Republicans of murder, and where is the complaint? Where is the media complaining about the lack of civility? "How dare they speak this way? Kill people?" No. The media is carrying the message. The media is formulating the message, and this is the kind of stuff that ends up with Republicans being shot at! And here's Trump being raked over the coals for a bunch of words. There's just a very, very big missing sense of proportion in all of this.
Putin Didn’t Care Who Won Our Election
RUSH: I think it's absolutely absurd and it's sophomoric to think that Putin would want a certain candidate to win. It isn't… Putin is going to be considering the United States his number one enemy no matter who our president is — and no matter who's elected, that isn't going to change.
I Just Got Favorable Coverage on Headline News — and It Makes Me Nervous!
RUSH: My experience with the press is that it's always negative, cutting, attempting to damage. It's unfair. Most of it's untrue. But it's always an attack. I have just grown accustomed to it.
What I Know About Trump, Joe and Mika
RUSH: Mika Brzezinski and Scarborough have been going after me for I don't know how long despite the fact that when they wanted to come by here and say hello, I let 'em in, I spent an hour, gave 'em both an iPad, walked away. There was nothing contentious or confrontational about it at all. But they have been relentless in their smears and attacks.
WSJ: Did the Russians Trick James Comey?
RUSH: Mr. Jenkins at the Wall Street Journal has got a pretty good idea of what's happening here and has realized that what really has them in a tizzy here is that the Russians may in fact have tricked, not Trump, and not Carter Page, and not Michael Flynn. The Russians may in fact have tricked James Comey and the FBI into taking action such as that July 5th press conference and then the reopening back in October, of doing things that really did damage to Hillary's campaign.
Media Captivated by My CNN Commentary
RUSH: You know, it always amazes me what happens on this program that’s gonna get picked up and smeared — not smeared — broadcast all over everywhere else in the media. And there are two things.
House Witch Hunt to Question Trump Bodyguard
RUSH: They're calling Trump's bodyguard over the Russian collusion story?
Climate Alarmists: We Have Three Years Left
RUSH: The world has three years to start making significant reductions in greenhouse — How many years, let's see, starting in 1980 we had 20, and then when this program started in 1988 we had 10. We had 10 years to save the oceans, Ted Danson. We had 10 years to save the planet. And then in 2006, Algore said we had 10 years to stop global warming or it would be the end of the planet and civilization, and those 10 years came and went about two years ago.
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.
Rush 24/7 Morning Update: Heartland Engagement
RUSH: The Democrat Party agenda has never been about engaging with the heartland’s traditional values. It's about wiping them out.
My Theory on McConnell Is All the Rage
RUSH: I said, what if McConnell purposely submitted a bill that the CBO would score atrociously, claiming 22 million would lose their health insurance and 45 million would die and whatever else it was gonna cost? And then would resubmit the bill after learning how the CBO scored it in order to get a bill that they score in a great way.
Psychologist: Women Don’t Want Pajama Boys
RUSH: “Women don’t even like harmless men; they hate them. They like to claw them apart. What women want are dangerous men who are civilized.” We’re not talking about guys that are not civilized; don’t misunderstand. We’re not talking about people that don’t know how to use a knife and fork. Dangerous, risk-taking guys who are civilized and do not mind — by the way, every time I’ve mentioned this, I have been excoriated.
Solar Panels Aren’t Sustainable
RUSH: This is National Review: "A Clean Energy’s Dirty Little Secret."
Libs Outraged by the Lavish Lifestyle of the Sellout Obamas
RUSH: There are people on the left feeling like they have been betrayed, like Obama is a sellout. We tried to tell 'em, for how long did we try to tell them? Fell upon deaf ears.
Is Zuckerberg Running for President?
RUSH: Everybody's wanting to get into this. There are people paying attention to what Zuckerberg's doing who think he's setting up a run for the presidency in 2020 or 2024. He is publicly saying he wants every human being on earth signed into Facebook, and there's no question that has a left-wing tilt to it.
The $80,000 Sea Otter That Vanished in One Swallow
RUSH: It was nature. Many people have tried to deny that the story happened since then, but we know that it did because the insurance company complained about the loss, $80,000 vanished in one swallow.
Does Anyone Know the Acting Director of the FBI Is Under Investigation?
RUSH: Don't you find it a bit ironic that we are finally hearing that while Trump has never been a target of an FBI probe, Crazy Bernie and his wife are! Now, you can bet, if Jane Sanders is being investigated, so is Crazy Bernie.
