Professional, Polite, Prepared to Kill

Rush’s Speech at Hillsdale College Churchill Dinner in Washington, DC

RUSH:  Larry told me I have five minutes.  [Laughter]  Thank you all very much. This receiving an award like this is beyond my comprehension. [Laughter] You always check yourself when there’s a camera around. Please bear with me, folks. I’ve got a case of bronchitis and a little fever, and I’m going to try to suppress my coughing spasms.  But I see Fred Thompson.  I don’t know how it’s possible.  Let me tell you.  I was in the air flying up here from Florida at about 4:30 and I’m over Raleigh, North Carolina, well right between Raleigh and Durham.  And I’m —   well, I want to be fair with the nondiscrimination stuff, so — [Laughter] ead and listent to the full speech HERE

And I’ve got Fox News on.  And there’s the Cavuto show and Fred Thompson is on Cavuto show and he was in New York, right?  So he’s in New York at 4:30.  He’s not dressed like he is now.  And I just recently got here.  I landed at Dulles about 5:50.  It took an hour and 35 or 40 minutes to get in here because the tree lighting ceremony and my temporary security guy, who is an order of fries short of a Happy Meal, got the route all wrong.  [Laughter]

He had to get all the way to LaGuardia.  And I assume you shoveled it to National?  And you didn’t hit traffic, it’s amazing.  Somebody told me you were going to be here and I said,”He can’t be, he’s in New York.” I was in this hotel one time prior to this.  It was in 1987.  And I was working in Sacramento at the time.  And I had never,    you know, I did not do guests.  I had constantly sworn off on doing guests on the radio, because everybody else did.  And the, excuse me, local management was so insistent that I do guests that they sent me here for a week if I would do guests.  And the ABC Studios are right across the street on Desales Street, and that’s where we did the radio show for a week.  And so I lined up a bunch of guests.  I lined up George Will.  I lined up Sam Donaldson, Judge Bork, a number of other people.  And one of them that I lined up was Vitaly Churkin.  Now, back in 1987, Vitaly Churkin was a regular.  He was almost a cohost of Nightline.  And he was at the Soviet Embassy.  And he was one of these KGB guys that spoke perfect English, looked as American as anybody at Hillsdale College.  [Laughter]  R

Big Government – Big Corporations – Traitors and the Enemies of America

Greed, corruption, power is destroying America…..our Constitution is being scuttled, neutered one sentence, one article, one right at a time…the vast majority of America has no idea what is about to come crashing down on our once great republic.

A president-elect that may or may not be in compliance with qualification requirements outlined in the US Constitution and resists verifying his compliance; a Congress that has failed to uphold their “oath” of office allowing their own greed and personal ambition to over rule “America first”; elements of government doling out trillions of tax payer dollars helter-skelter to mismanaged corporations; voices of accountability are hushed because there may be some element of society offended; leadership in America now takes on the connotation of “incompetent, crook, unreliable, selfish, and yes, unAmerican; capitalism is being surrendered to socialism and fascism forces;  immoral behavior is well beyond Biblical descriptions of Sodom and Gomorrah; in short America is rudderless, simply steaming full-speed toward an eventual fatal crash.

Our citizens are led by people like Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson-Claus, Rep Barney Frank-Claus, Senator Chris Dodd-Claus, and many other “Claus” supporting the ills of America…all willing to pursue any cockamamie scheme or immoral approach to milk hundreds of billions of  taxpayer dollars to bail-out their favorite corporations while allowing others to survive or fail based on our capitalistic system mechanism. Will Paulson-Claus bail out Abercrombie and Fitch if they fail, who have  7000 more employees than General Motors?  What about GE, Wal-Mart, Target, to name a few that have more employees than individual car manufacturers…should they fail will a bail-out be forthcoming?   Is the Union the real problem at GM/Ford/Chrysler as many proclaim?  Have they forced an unreasonable employee entitlement package that’s bankrupting GM/Ford and Chrysler?  Whatever positive actions unions accomplished in the past has been totally overshadowed by the incestuous union organizer and CEO greed.

America has become a nation of moral cowards…if we oppose abortion we accept the condemnation of opposing women…it’s not about women it’s about a behavior that kills a baby; if we oppose homosexuality we accept condemnation that we don’t treat “gays” as people…it’s not opposition to the person but the immoral behavior;  if we oppose same-sex marriage we accept condemnation of opposing some constitutional guarantee that allows  humans to act in a manner unlike any other animal, mammal, etc on the face of the earth……there is no such moral or constitutional support; generally, America has been turned around from a moral, decent, character driven “shining city on the hill”nation, to one of Godless behavior, sliding rapidly into the pit of helplessness….all with a hand outstretched to government Santa Claus for rescue.

The evil of today not unlike the loud evil shouting of “kill him, kill him” over 2000 years ago, is drowning out the reality of America the Beautiful…there is only one hope…2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 

Harry Riley, COL, USA, Ret

Isaiah 40:31 – But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

What Caused Our Economic Crisis?

Yes – I catagoized the video under “Bolo and Crime” – this is the biggest bank heist in history and the Democrats are proposing the biggest Socialist “solution” we have ever seen.
