Rush 24/7 Morning Update: Bye-Bye, Ban

RUSH: On Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the end to an Obama ban which prevented the transfer of surplus military equipment to local police departments. President Trump — who has “a pen and a phone” — used his pen to sign an executive order overturning Obama’s decision.

Establishment Washingtonians Are Losing Their Minds Over This President

RUSH: We are surrounded by people who, for whatever reason, think the United States is the problem in the world. We elect somebody who believes in the United States and wants to make it great again and these people start having conniption fits and start questioning his fitness for office? You've got it ass backwards, Director Clapper.

Rush Rescues Gecko from Allie the Cat

RUSH: My cat, Allie, was going nuts on the coffee table in front of me and I thought it was just 'cause she missed me 'cause I was gone for a week.

Our “Artificial” Climatologist’s Official Book Is Doing Gangbusters

RUSH: Dr. Roy Spencer. He's the chief climatologist at University of Alabama in Huntsville. And I have referred to him off and on as our "official climatologist" because he is one of the accredited sources I seek and cite. And so the media, constantly focused on this program looking for any evidence that we might get something wrong, have decided to investigate Dr. Spencer!

J.J. Watt of the Texans Steps Up for Houston

RUSH: He found a website where you can do this and he shut the website down within minutes of it going live because the website had not had this kind of traffic before. Just gobs and gobs of money are pouring in charitably to various fundraising efforts in Houston.

The Federal Spigot Is Open in Texas!

RUSH: "Don't worry about it. We're gonna have the money." That's how you show you care, in the modern presidency. And that's why Pence made the point. He knew the media was gonna be listening and, if they didn't hear that (pshew!), all hell would have broken loose.

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.

Harvey Isn’t Washing Away Anti-Trump Hate, Climate Change Myths

RUSH: Man, I tell you, I don’t care what’s happening in Houston, the Trump hate is ongoing. The anti-Trump thinking, actions — the protests, the apparent desire to rip this country apart and eventually destroy it — goes on unabated, as does the meteorological disaster taking place in southeastern Texas.

What’s Happening in Houston Isn’t the Worst Ever

RUSH: A hundred years ago, 115 years ago, 6,000 to 12,000 people died in a hurricane in Galveston. It's been worse. Floodwaters have been higher in Houston by 18 feet than they are today. The Drive-Bys don't know it — and were they to find out, they don't care. It would get in the way of what they're trying to say here and image they're trying to create in this story.

I Consider It an Honor to Have Been Asked to Resign by ESPN

RUSH: It was so odd I don't think they believed me. And I didn't tell them in a jocular manner. I said, "You guys will not believe this. ESPN just got rid of an announcer, an Asian guy by the name of Robert Lee because his name is too close to Robert E. Lee." And they said, "What?"

Trump Kicks Big Government into Action, But the People of Texas Take Care of Themselves

RUSH: Once they're able to get moving, you're gonna be dazzled by the speed with which they move down there. Proud people. They're all Americans. They don't feel distinct and separate; don't misunderstand. But there is a pride in being a Texan. I mean, it even extends to the fact that Texas women are different from women elsewhere in the eyes of guys in Texas — and if they believe it, then it's true.

Houston Caller: Hurricane Harvey Is Better Than a Hillary Presidency

CALLER: Well, I just want to say, I’m a conservative, love listening to you all the time, and living with a, you know, liberal mayor, stuff like that, I would rather go through a hurricane than have to endure a Hillary Clinton presidency. That keeps me in perspective.

From Banning Gone With the Wind to Calling NFL Fans Racists, Leftists Rip Us Apart by Race

RUSH: They are the ones who are race conscious, they're the ones race focused, and, as such, they are doing everything they can to divide people in this country along the lines of race while claiming to unify and all this other happy malarkey. So the fight and the effort to deal with it goes on. But it's frustrating as it can be. A lot of it seems inexplicable. But if you understand liberals like I do, everything they do makes perfect sense, if you understand them, and it's eminently predictable too.

My Moment of Eclipse Totality

RUSH: I stopped in Idaho to pick up some people on the way to Hawaii, and I saw it… I went outside. Had special glasses. And it was incredible.

The Best of America on Display in Houston

RUSH: Things going on in Houston today, over the weekend, we're seeing in many ways the absolute best of America. It is a devastating scene. It is incomprehensible to people with all kinds of questions. At the same time, the heroism and the selflessness that is occurring there to rescue people and animals, pets and so forth, is just a typically American thing to see.
