Caller Remembers Rush’s Very First Show in 1988
CALLER: My wife and I were on our way to the Jersey Shore. I heard you talkin', and I said to my wife, "What did he say his name was?" And she said, "I think he said 'Rush.'" And I said, "Man, I don't know who he is, but I sure like what he's saying. He's saying what I'm thinkin'," and I've been listening ever since.
Thank You to Joseph Farah — And All of You Who’ve Sent Anniversary Wishes
RUSH: I have never taken any of this for granted. I've always felt that every day I have to come in here and exceed expectations in order to continue to earn this, and today is no different. I'm actually grateful for the way I was raised, 'cause I think that's why I look at it this way.
My Principles Have Never Wavered
RUSH: My principles and core beliefs haven't changed. You know, I don't change what I think with the wind just in order to perhaps attract more people. I am what I am, believe what I believe, and I say so.

Jared Kushner Tells the Truth About Middle East Peace
RUSH: I don't care if it was a leak that made it happen. It's refreshing to hear Jared Kushner say, "There may be no solution to the conflict in the Middle East." There isn't! Not the way we've been going about it. Where's the evidence that the way we've been going about it for the last 50 years has a solution? There isn't any, not a shred. Because you're never gonna convince one side to quit and give up.
Pew Poll: The Democrats Are Too Statist (And Where Did People Learn That Word?)

The Fix to White House “Chaos”? Enact the Trump Agenda!
RUSH: If Reince Priebus couldn't get it done, we'll see if Kelly can get it done. Meaning: Liaison with the Congress. But I'm telling you, that's the fix for all of this. Moving the agenda forward would solve the approval numbers, because I guarantee you: Once that agenda moves forward and once items in that agenda are accomplished and begin to happen, everybody in America is gonna see and benefit from it.
Republicans Are in the Midst of the Biggest Blown Political Opportunity in My Lifetime
RUSH: The Republican Party in Congress, House and Senate, for the most part is doing what it can to stop Trump or to arrest his agenda. I really believe this. I don't think they're trying to capitalize on this at all… And it's contributing to the biggest blown opportunity in politics in my lifetime.
Did Kelly Really Call Comey?
RUSH: This is the only place that it's been reported is CNN. … They're not close friends, yet Kelly called Comey. Kelly's a tough, rough Marine. Kelly was angry and hurt by Comey's firing, so angry and hurt he was tempted to resign. I don't know.
A Very Short Review of the Last 29 Years
RUSH: Sustainability is one of the major things to Millennials… So I thought that we would put together just a short little review of the previous 29 years, highlighting the sustainability of the EIB Network.
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.
