      Rush has been blessed by God and we are also blessed to live in a time when he is alive and healthy enough to provide a 3 hour daily dose of rational logical and spirited balance to the once-sided brainwashing pushed out every day from the MSM.

      Rush is obviously loved in his hometown, listening to the roar of the crowd.

      He was an excellent choice to speak at this historic final rally before this crucial midterm election. I am so glad he accepted (probably not much choice… 😁 ).

        Very good remarks by Rush. I think he was spot on when he repeatedly commented that no other politician in America could do what President Trump is doing. I think a large part of the reason why Trump has forged the bond with Americans that Rush referred to was made clear by some people behind Rush holding signs that said, “Promises Made, Promises Kept.” President Trump has actually done what he said he would do if elected, and that is such a novel thing in American politics that there is no wonder he has a huge number of devoted adherents.

        We have been extraordinarily blessed as a nation to have had President Trump and his family be willing to step up and take on such tremendous responsibilities. Our national politics have been in such a mess for so long that it isn’t surprising that it took a non-politician to begin actually getting the mess sorted out. Trump and Alexander the Great have a lot in common when it comes to sorting out knotty problems: they take swords to them!

          I don’t believe any of the others could have come close to the positive changes made by this President-against a constant barrage of savage opposition.
          I also have been amazed to see the stalwart support provided by VP Pence. He wouldn’t have been my choice either, but once again, Trump has been proven correct.

        In defense of Rush, he does not pick a candidate during the primaries. The Cruz thing was always about who was a bona fide constitutional conservative among the candidates. Donald J. Trump had no clear constitutional conservative “bona fides” and he certainly did not make any concerted attempt to establish a foundation of constitutional conservatism. He still doesn’t. But by his actions, we have come to learn that President Donald J. Trump is worthy of our trust, support and love. And once Donald J. Trump was our candidate, Rush pulled out all the stops and went 1000% for him. Rush backs every Republican candidate with all he’s got, even if the candidate is a loser.

      I am a faithful Rush listener. I also was all for Scott Walker and then for Ted Cruz, but neither of them could talk to Americans the way DJT does. So, after being, at first, dead opposed to 45 and then more and more amazed at him up through the Indiana Primary, (Cruz got drubbed there and withdrew in May 2016), I became an ENTHUSIASTIC Trump supporter. He has shown an amazing ability to call BS on the nonsense the Dems sell. He is way ahead of anyone else in Washington on Immigration and Trade. I am hopeful of a Stealth Red Wave that preserves a GOP House and Senate. GO GOP!

As Sundance regularly pointed out during the 2015/2016 Republican primary, Rush was far from a perfect Trump supporter. However, throughout it all, Rush loves this country with a conservative, patriotic fervor. He has come around 110% to the Trump train. His consistent, effective voice is needed and appreciated.

      Limbaugh admitted after the GOP lost both houses of Congress in the 2006 midterms that he was “tired of carrying water for people who don’t deserve to have their water carried.” He came clean that yes, indeed, he had been shilling for the GOP even though they had betrayed virtually every conservative principle that had won his support in the first place.

      IMHO he was doing it again in 2016, not for backing Cruz (who was the “best of the rest” after Trump) but for trying to pump up Rubio when the GOPe wanted him to.

    • He was NEVER against Trump and if you had listened to his broadcasts you would hear sprinkled in Trump REPEATEDLY thanking him for the inside advice he was giving him, without actually sponsoring him. Rush has NEVER sponsored a candidate before nomination because the media would take that and poison it for the candidate.

      Trump called in TWICE during the campaign to thank Rush and it was clear that the two were on excellent terms AND that Trump, who had a HUGE learning curve going into his presidency, gave a ton of credit to Rush’s online advice.

      I am sorry to sound so emphatic, but what divides conservatives can be so silly and so in error. Rush would comment on how his lifelong insistence on not supporting a candidate suddenly was turned into some sort of animus against Trump, when regular listeners were able to hear him consistently help out Trump…AND TRUMP himself saying it!

      I know that pride is a stupid stupid trait from which we all suffer, but if we consider how our founders, a tiny minority, had to make concessions and suffer all sorts of opposition to get our freedoms, can’t we look at the big picture and recognize that grudges are for the left…they who will exile someone for just the slightest deviation from their narrative and make it nearly impossible to regain acceptance?

      Rush NEVER disbelieved in Trump. And if you heard a radio broadcast that PROVES you are right, how much satisfaction does that give you when Trump himself disputes it?

      I’m sorry, it’s just to think that between the Never Trumpers and the Never Rushes we have to contend with the POSSIBILITY of the left’s still winning, I get a bit …. testy.

        Rush mentioned this morning that the woman had fainted apparently because she had not taken her insulin on time.

        Likely all the excitement, closeness of other bodies, fatigue from standing, and simply the joy of seeing the President combined to send her reeling.

          Yes my son was worried about the woman who fainted.

He still didn’t understand what caused her to faint. I told him we don’t always know, but it happens to the best of us 😉

          It doesn’t surprise me that it was diabetes.

          But Trump has seen this several times, it even happened in Indiana only hours before. He knows what to do – he stops and quiets the crowd, asks if there is a doctor in the house, and lets everyone know that we have plenty of time. Medical emergencies are the priority.

      I had a similar impression of Rush tonight. On his show, he actually said he didn’t know what he was going to say and really hadn’t prepared a speech. Rush is a behind the microphone guy, right. He doesn’t do TV or in person speaking engagements all that often. When he got to the podium, behind its microphone and saw the MAGA crowd of real Missourians standing before him cheering him, Rush was blown away.

    The most interesting part of Rush’s remarks is the segment where he alludes to being a non-believer in Trump initially, but who came to recognize and value the President’s tenacity and willingness to fight back against the narrative weavers and how that has forged the bonds between himself and the electorate.

    Following his line of thought, Rush must believe this is the reason “no one else” could have done what the President has accomplished. I would even argue he admitted “no one else” would have beaten the Democratic candidate. That “no one else” includes “full throated conservative” Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Bush Family runt, all of whom Rush supported or promoted in the 2016 cycle.

    Whether Rush meant to admit it or not, the subtext of his speech demonstrates that he now realizes candidate/President Trump has shifted control of the conservative movement from the donor/corporate circles, of which he is a part, to the grassroots/base. That he is willing to embrace this shift is to his credit.

      Rush has always been for the people… at heart. He’s very much like Trump, and they have done to Rush exactly what they’ve done to Trump. They’ve represented Rush as leading a bunch of mind-numbed stupid hillbillies everyday on his show, and Rush has pointed out over and over again every chance he gets that his audience is the most intelligent, well educated group of listeners in the country.

      He’s went out of his way to thank his listeners from the very beginning so it doesn’t surprise me that he jumped aboard the Trump Train as soon as he could.

        Look at the 2016 GOP Presidential primary: Besides Trump, everyone running was a motley crew. Another Bush; mini-McCain Rubio; Kasich, the execrable Gary Shandling lookalike from Ohio; Christie, the Obama-lover from New Jersey; and a bunch of other political midgets. Ted Cruz was the best of THAT bunch, chintzy and cheap a crown as it is.

        Donald Trump totally outclassed them all – but at first his appeal was based on his celebrity, his willingness to embrace wildly popular but controversial ideas, and his stunning courage in the face of blistering criticism. Even Ann Coulter, who loved his anti-illegal immigration stand, was waiting for him to walk it back (he never did). But until he proved himself a serious contender and not just a sensational sideshow that would burn out and self-destruct Cruz was the only reasonable “other” choice.

      Willing to embrace? It’s the answer to Rush’s PRAYERS. He was a true believer in the GOP until after the 1994 Gingrich Congressional elections. He was perplexed by the number of Republicans who seemed UNHAPPY they had won. Rush slowly came to realize over more than a decade afterwards that much of the GOPe and conservative commentariat were frauds: They told the conservatives what they wanted to hear secure in the knowledge they would never have to ACT: It was a great fundraising tool, but it was all a lie. They were the “controlled opposition” in league with the Democrats and K Street.

      For a long time Rush was sadly resigned to the fact that voting for the Republicans was only to stop (or slow) Democrat policies. Truly, the “lesser of 2 evils” – still evil, but slightly less so.

      Until Trump. And, informed by decades of bitter experience of being betrayed by “conservative” politicians, Limbaugh and the other battered conservatives (who aren’t frauds like Kristol, Rubin, and Will) were very slow to trust that President Donald J. Trump was the real deal. But now they know he is, and their loyalty is galvanized.

    By the way, Rush is the man, he’s done more for modern conservatism than almost anybody, My list goes like this

    1. Donald Trump
    2. Ronald Reagan
    3. Rush Limbaugh

    That’s just how it is as far as I’m concerned….

        Even Hannity, who has a bit of an ego although he tries to act like he doesnt, says none of them would be there if it weren’t for Rush leading the way!

        I’ve been a Rush listener since 1989. He is the reason I got interested in politics. I thought it was boring before. Now, Trump has boosted it into overdrive for another whole generation. Does anyone think we would even have FNC if it wasn’t for Rush showing there was a whole country of people that were hungry for someone to give them the truth.

      Treehouseron, I totally agree with you. Rush has been the leader in fighting against the “liberals” for many, many years . The ones who are hell bent on taking us into some kind of dystopian, Mad Max type civilization.

    I have in the past been somewhat critical of Rush, but not now.
    For whatever the reasons, he is now on the Train.

    Whatever anyone may think, Rush has been with us thru the good and bad times.

    He did sound somewhat overwhelmed tonite.
    Many have been just plain “open mouthed” at being in the middle of those thousands of Deplorables.

    He at times sounded as he were talking to his radio audience…

    But now, we must move on. The most important item is:

    He is with us. And he has over 28 million listeners. His show tomorrow should be good.

    Get out and vote…….and Pray for our country.

    • I’ve had issues with Rush over the years but can you imagine our lives & our country over the past (about) 40 years if he had not been there fighting every day? Our nation and our conservativism owes him a debt of gratitude.

        Elle: “I’ve had issues with Rush over the years but can you imagine our lives & our country over the past (about) 40 years if he had not been there fighting every day? “

        You speak for a lot of us with that, Elle. I’ve had issues with Rush, too.

        Most of my issues with Rush stem from him not truly understanding the Uniparty and it’s control of the Republican party. He thought Jeb, or Ted, or, Marco or some of the others would be OK. Trump? Probably OK. He just thought there were minor differences in them and was looking at who might be the best to win; Republican good, Democrat bad. Wrong! Uniparty candidates all, except candidate Trump.

        However, Rush is not bragging when he says, just to intentionally irritate them, “I know Liberals like I know every inch of my glorious naked body.” I’ve never had issues with Rush and his views on what he terms Liberals, the Left, or Democrats. He really does know his stuff. He understands the “other side” better than his “own side” and that has been one of the main issues I’ve had with Rush.

        Recently, I’ve heard him say things that demonstrate he’s now aware of the Uniparty and he has definitely stated that seeing the crowds at Trump rallies opened his eyes to the fact that Donald Trump was not just another choice from the original 16 candidates. President was the only right man for America for the time.

        Now that Rush has experienced a Trump Rally himself, I believe we may see a final transformation in him. I think Rush now has a more complete understanding of “our side” and we’ll get much better analysis and support from him going forward. Now, I think any issues I may have with Rush will be few and far between.

        My 2¢.

    Rush did a great job, didn’t he.

    He speaks to millions of people on his broadcasts…but this was different.
    He was facing them, in person.

    At times he seemed a bit overwhelmed and understandably so.
    But he quickly recovered, demonstrating what a skilled professional he is.

    It was music to my ears to hear him defend our President.
    He brought up the Russia Hoax and shot it full of holes…and praised Pres Trump for fighting for us, like no one else has done.

    Thank you, Rush!
    You contributed to making this a truly Epic Rally and an historic event.

  19. Folks, Before I retired I listened to “El Rushbo” (Just a little Spanish Lingo for those of you in Rio Linda) at work and still do. Mr. Limbaugh single-handedly SAVED U.S. AM Radio and is the Founder of Conservative Talk-Radio.
    Rush, like Pres.Trump, is LIED-ABOUT by the Democrats on a Daily Basis.

      I agree, O F R.
      I’ve had experience with people who passionately detest Rush. And then you find out these people don’t actually listen to Rush. They listen to what people say about Rush (who are usually people who ALSO don’t listen to Rush.
      Obviously, none of us get it right 100% of the time. But it seems to me Rush has a far better average than most in the media and actually does care about ordinary people. (unlike the smug representatives of the mainstream media who are too busy kissing their own shoulders to care about anyone else.

    I remember when Rush was accepting Mercer $ – ads – during the primaries.

    Commenters here were on to him, plus Sundance’s own investigative journalism secured that fact.

    Then something occurred to me. Long before Rush was a Trumpster, the Treehouse was hardcore Trump.

    Which means we are the base of the base of Trump’s supporters.

    Feels good man.

        Amen Sammy. I have never watched one episode of The Apprentice and only knew Trump through all his publicity from marriages,divorce,affairs etc. I didn’t dislike him and thought he was a gutsy guy and kind of admired him. Until he came along I wasn’t very enthused with any of the Republican candidates and thought none of them had a chance of beating Hillary and the Clinton machine. It was her time and it was promised to her after Obama happened in 2008. Well all that changed the night of the famous escalator ride and I heard Donald Trump talk about all the things that I cared about and that were important to me. That was it! This was the person!I knew he cared about our country and he was not afraid to stand up and fight for it! I jumped on that Trump train so fast and I am still riding it to wherever it takes me. Team Trump from the very beginning. KAG!

      Rush has frequently stated that he does not endorse any candidate in the primaries. He was “all in” for all of them except Kasich who he disliked intensely. Once (President) Trump won the nomination, Rush was able to express his wholehearted support, admiration and love for his long-time friend. I believe his insights were unique and invaluable. For example, when Rush articulated the unique nature of Trump’s bond with his supporters and that the media could not break them because the media didn’t create them, Rush spoke from his own experience (who remembers the Sandra Flake kerfuffle?).
      It was wonderful to see and hear him at this last midterm rally and he richly deserved the honor.

        “(Linbaugh) richly deserved the honor”….I thought last night’s rally was a small thank-you/recognition from POTUS to many personalities that played various roles during the past few years. Having Greenwood feel the love and enthusiasm from live crowds for his small, but significant singing role….bringing Sarah and Kellyanne on stage to give them that recognition and experience…Rush for his major role in educating so many, etc.
        A generous, gracious person will always shared the stage and compliments whenever they can…to me, last night was just an example.

  24. The ShowMe Center’s capacity is about 7400, according to their website, but I don’t know whether that is just the seats in the stands, or if it includes a standing group on the floor. RSBN said it was SRO, then they asked people to move closer together so they could let in another hundred or so right before it started. It was cold and raining and many stood in lines for hours. The attendance at these rallies is incredible! I avoid big events like that, but I both envied and admired all the attendees; their grace and patience, their stamina and effort to support our President and politicians who believe in what he is trying to accomplish. My favorite quote was from POTUS Trump when he said Make America Great Again is not a ‘slogan’, it’s our goal.

    The Rush /Trump duo was fantastic to watch.

    Rush can maintain the attention of a very large audience every day on radio for 3 hours minus Ad time and he did the same for a few enjoyable minutes at the rally. He has a prolific mind and I love his humor and insight on issues.

    Super Sarah Sander’s and Kellyanne Conway’s brief comments were also great at the previous rally. They both deserved the copious cheers of gratitude for their efforts.

    We’ve read Rush Limbaugh’s program transcripts for, lo! Since 1996. Originally agreed with him on Cruz, and even made my only small-change donation of a lifetime… but that was largely because VSG was an untried figure known to have spread largesse to Rats in NYC. Came Super Tuesday in March 2016, we went all-in for Trump, steadfastly projecting a substantial Electoral College win (304 : 226, as’t turned out).

    Like Lincoln, Jackson, Reagan, Trump was and remains a political outsider with an inborn sense of America as an Idea. Like our Virginia gentry founders, his very existence makes nonsense of gargoyle Marxisants’ dialectical-material “class struggle”. Deadhead rhetoric, willful ignorance and bizarre stupidity, phony issues: Gentlemen, behold Wilson’s, FDR’s, LBJ’s katzenjammer-klepto-krosshatched Rats.

    “There’s a great text in Galatians, once you trip on it, entails / “Twenty-nine distinct damnations, one sure if another fails” (Browning, “Soliloquy in a Spanish Cloister”, 1842). And yet: “Many a knot unravel’d by the road, / “But not the Master Knot of human fate” (FitzGerald, “Rubaiyat”, 1859).

    I have been listening to Rush faithfully since 1990! Anyone who is a regular listener to Rush knows just how BIG his appearance at this rally was. Rush has said many times on his show how much he likes President Trump, how he knows him and how his willingness to fight makes PDJT the only person who could win and “take the Country back” He even stopped saying your place for advanced conservatives studies after all the GOPe came out against PDJT. He said one day on his show he was changing his logo to your place for anti-Leftist studies after the way PDJT was treated by the GOPe!! Rush knows President Trump and he LOVES him!!! I said last night, I was overwhelmed to see my TWO FAVORITE people in the world on stage together…Donald J Trump and Rush Limbaugh!! WOW!!!!!

      I’d really forgotten how articulate and smart Rush is. I didn’t watch all but most of it and he was amazing. Thanks so much for making it easy for me to enjoy. I really wish I could hear today’s show after the election. I need some encouragement because I feel in spite of the Senate take over the President has been betrayed for all his hard work by many voters who gave the House back to the Democrats. The numbers favoring Democrats even in races they lost is unbelievable to me. Unless we not only control illegal immigration but control or stop legal immigration built on welfare this country is indeed lost.
