(278) Rush Limbaugh at CPAC 2009: The Speech That Inspired a Movement – YouTube

As I listened carefully this time it dawned on me. Trump was the candidate Rush was always hoping for. Thankful Rush lived long enough to meet him and deservedly receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom from him.

It seems like Rush was taken from us too soon. I keep thinking-and sure you do too-if only Rush had been given another 10 yrs. Given the seriousness of Stage 4 Cancer we all know he was given an expiration date. Rush hinted that he lived past the time he was given. In fact, he went in to do his show almost till the day he died. If complications had not set in am sure he would have been there to the day. I watched Rush on a Monday. He was going in for chemo the next day and of course would be having a guest host come in. I kept waiting for him to come back like he always did. I think it was Friday night or at least that weekend my friend from Florida called me and asked what i thought about Rush. She was very concerned. So was I. Seemed like he would have been back by Friday but you never knew with his chemo. I told her if he wasn’t back by the following Monday then something was definitely wrong-i even gave him an extra day thinking if he didn’t come back by Tues then we had reason to think the worst. It was the worst and it was that Tues. We knew all along that day would come. We had been given extra time with Rush. Maybe because we were that fortunate we were thinking the extra time would continue. I was certainly hopeful and bet you were too although the prognosis said otherwise and his appearance had changed. He kept getting thinner. Wishful thinking meet reality.

I know this from listening to the Cpac message again that he and Trump had some kind of affinity with each other. They crossed paths at just the right time. Trump really was the candidate Rush had been hoping for. He nailed the GOPe in the speech before it was known as the GOPe. It’s ironic how he even mentioned the Walmart crowd; the ones who became known as the ‘smelly’ Walmart people by the left AND the GOPe. i bet Rush would have had a few good words for Turtle these days. He would have done it with his sharp wit and absolutely slayed him.

Enjoy the speech especially if you’ve never heard it before. If you have heard it before listen to it with ears tuned into the political landscape today. You’ll see how much more relevant it is now than it was then. See if you don’t hear echoes of Trump and get goose bumps like i did knowing Trump wasn’t even in the picture at the time. You’ll also want to note what he has to say about Biden who was only Obama’s VP then. Boy, did he have him pegged!

Yes,Rush was talent on loan from God. He never let it go to waste. He was a very serious person yet thing i loved most about him was his sense of humor.

Most Of Biden’s $1.9 Trillion Coronavirus Relief Bill Has Nothing To Do With Public Health –

Only a small percent of President Joe Biden’s proposed $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package would actually go to pandemic-related efforts.Reason’s Peter Suderman reported this week that just 1% of the package would be spent on vaccines, with only 5% going toward “pandemic-related public health needs.”

A full 15%, about $300 billion, is earmarked for liberal policy priorities that have nothing to do with the pandemic, such as expanding Obamacare subsidies and increasing the minimum wage to $15 an hour (four years from now).As Suderman noted, Biden has been pitching his nearly $2 trillion plan as imminently necessary.

“We don’t have a second to waste when it comes to delivering the American people the relief they desperately need. I’m calling on Congress to act quickly and pass the American Rescue Plan,”

Biden tweeted on February 8.The actual relief package, however, wouldn’t all be spent immediately, even for things deemed necessary to reopen schools.Biden’s “plan is padded with non-urgent, pre-existing Democratic policy priorities that have, at most, only tangential relationship to the crisis at hand,” Suderman reported.

For example, Biden’s plan calls for another $170 billion for education, including nearly $128 billion going to K-12 schools “for preparation for, prevention of, and response to the coronavirus pandemic or for other uses allowed by other federal education program.”

Despite Biden’s claims that the money is needed urgently,

“The vast majority of the relief plan’s money for schools wouldn’t be spent in the current fiscal year, or even next year,”

Suderman reported.

“Previous coronavirus relief and congressional spending bills have already included more than $100 billion in funding for schools. But according to the Congressional Budget Office, ‘most of those funds remain to be spent,’” Suderman added.While Biden is calling for $170 billion, just $6 billion would be spent this fiscal year, with another $32 billion spent next year.The relief package also calls for $350 billion to bail out state budgets.

The figure was based on a previous projection that state budgets would be down about 8% this year, but The Wall Street Journal reported the real drop is just 1.6%. Further, 18 states ended 2020 with projected revenue increases. California, for example, would receive billions from Biden’s relief plan even though it has a projected revenue surplus of $15 billion.

“There’s more like this peppered throughout Biden’s pandemic relief plan. Biden and his communications team raise the issue of food insecurity—then insist that checks should go to a two-earner family with stable jobs making $120,000 a year in a city with a roughly $40,000 annual median income for couples,” Suderman wrote, adding that couples with these salaries have generally avoided losing any money during the pandemic.

As The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti reported last week, the pandemic-related measures of the bill would provide $1,400 stimulus checks to individuals that phase out starting at certain incomes, an extension to federal supplemental unemployment benefits, and increases the budget for the WIC food stamps program, as well as providing funds for mortgage payment and rental assistance.First seen at The Daily Wire, Most Of Biden’s $1.9 Trillion Coronavirus Relief Bill Has Nothing To Do With Public Health
