General Kelly Cuts Mooch Loose
RUSH: The word on Kelly is, you know, he's a military man. He's a lieutenant general. He's a button-down, kick ass guy, and he was gonna bring discipline to the White House. The leaking was gonna stop and all these individual contractors in there trying to ply their own secrets and their own leaks to advance their own careers, not being on the team, that was gonna stop.
Wolf Blitzer Lectures Gloria Borger Over Her Lousy Sources
RUSH: Gloria Borger was saying that her sources were saying that Priebus wasn't gonna resign, that Priebus wasn't in any trouble. And, of course, Priebus resigned. So Blitzer is thinking that CNN's credibility's on the line here. So he saw fit to go after her. Here's how it sounded…
Obamacare Implodes — and It’s the Republicans’ Problem?
RUSH: You notice the wording. It's now become a fact that the Republicans "failed" to fix Obamacare when Obamacare was wonderful! It was brilliant. It was the first step to utopia. But it's falling apart 'cause of the Republicans. The Democrats — my point is — are never blamed for any of this. Never! Obama's never blamed. They remain victims. Obama's a victim of these dastardly Republicans wanting to deny health insurance to 20 million Americans.
Collusion? Putin Retaliates for Sanctions
RUSH: None of this fits with collusion. None of this fits with Trump being Putin's chosen candidate. None of this fits with Putin wanting Trump to be elected instead of the lovely and gracious Hillary. None of it fits with Russian meddling in election.
Designer Babies Are Here
RUSH: I have this story I had late last week. I didn’t get a chance to get into it. But this story goes back, on this program, to the early nineties. Here is the headline: “Scientists in Oregon Take First Step Towards Designer Babies by Editing Human Embryo DNA.” I remember discussing this way, way back during the era of AIDS, in fact. It was in the late eighties-early nineties when AIDS was a top-line political issue in America, and I’ll tell you how I brought it up to people…
Trump Threatens Congressional Obamacare Subsidies
RUSH: Trump is threatening to just get rid of the 73% subsidy for Congress and its staff if they don't get their act in gear. So the bottom line there is that Trump hasn't given up. Trump does not think this is over. He's not acting as though it's over.
The Republican Obamacare Betrayal
RUSH: McCain, I just know — as I say, I'm sure many of you can even understand, maybe even agree — has been waiting for the right moment to stick it back to Trump and chose to do it last Thursday as the last vote, thumbs down, killing Obamacare repeal.
The Big Story: Corporate Profitability at Six-Year High
RUSH: There is profit growth, and with profit growth comes economic growth, with profit growth comes new jobs…Trump is cutting regulations like a zombie. He makes mention of this at every one of his rallies, but it never gets covered beyond that because it's not something the left wants to highlight because it's working.
Robot Teachers Could Fix the Education System
RUSH: It is the Democrat Party's quest for minimum wage that's resulting in the rapid increase in robotics in the workforce. The Democrat Party is actually helping to kill jobs done by human beings. And so I'm saying, well, why don't we add teachers to the lot?
NAALCP Issues Travel Warning for State of Missouri
RUSH: The NAALCP — the National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People — has issued a travel advisory for the state of Missouri "warning tourists that their civil rights might not be respected" if they're stopped for a traffic violation. Gee whiz.
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: Fix It
RUSH: So after lacking courage to repeal Obamacare we’re about to find out which Republicans can’t wait to play ball with Democrats to fix it. Hold onto your wallets, folks. As always, the fix is your back pocket.

Rush 24/7 Morning Update: The Magnificent Seven
RUSH: The Magnificent Seven Republican senators defied their own voters, giving them the middle finger. They proudly stood with Obama and the Democrats instead of the people who elected them.
How the EIB Parodies Come to Be
RUSH: The parodies, the satires have taken a fascinating — if I stop and think about it — road in the way they happened. You know, there are many phases. This program has gone through many phases.
Algore’s Lunatic Movie Tour Rolls On
RUSH: CNN is doing a town hall meeting and discussion with Algore on Tuesday night, and it's all psychobabble. It is all propaganda.
Submissive Wife: Attacks on Masculinity Are the Downfall of Society
CALLER: I believe that's the downfall of our society. Men aren't allowed to be real men. Women are looked down on who want to be feminine women, that are submissive to their husbands, that take care of their families. And no one can control the children.
Have You Heard About Hillary’s New Book?
RUSH: Can you believe this? This woman obviously has not recovered.
Survey: National Anthem Protests Hurt NFL Ratings
RUSH: It’s one thing, if you have an idiot player that wants to take a knee in protest, fine, but when the cameras are gonna find the guy and announcers are gonna proclaim him heroic and brave and courageous, I guarantee you that’s gonna turn off well over half the people tuning in to watch the National Football League.
My New Theory on Trump and Sessions
RUSH: They have to do everything to distract the media's attention from what the real intention here is, which is a full-fledged investigation of Hillary Clinton.
