Rush Began a Movement that Isn’t Going Away

by: Brent Smith

Most know, as Rush said a thousand times, where we were the first time we heard his dulcet tones emanating from our radio. I certainly do. 

I was in the passenger seat of my father’s car. We were on the highway somewhere around Philadelphia. I don’t know why we were there – must have had something to do with my Navy service. He must have been picking me up from the airport or something.

In any event, he was listening to this guy on the radio. I don’t recall what this guy was talking about, but I remember him being brash and loud and I asked dad who the hell this guy was. He said it was a guy named Rush. I think the year was 1988 – Rush’s first year. I’ was hooked.

And unlike many who came before and will come after, he will be the voice that lives on, timelessly.

from the American Thinker:

Radio Free America – Rush’s Legacy

During the dark days of the Cold War, eastern Europeans were isolated from the rest of the world behind what was warmly referred to as the Iron Curtain.  Everything behind the Iron Curtain was autocratically ruled by the Soviet Union.  As part of its effort to control the populace, all regional news outlets (print and broadcast) were in fact, state-sponsored propaganda outlets.

The only exception to the blackout of truthful news was a powerful network of transmitters in western Europe, known as Radio Free Europe.  This network of transmitters broadcast news and entertainment deep into eastern Europe.  In addition to broadcasting the truth to those under communist rule, it also provided hope and a vision of what was outside of communist rule.  It was instrumental in preparing those behind the Iron Curtain for the eventual downfall of the Soviet Union.

Unfortunately, while we were fighting propaganda overseas, citizens back home were subjected to a uniquely American version of propaganda.  For decades — before the internet and satellite TV — news in America was controlled by a select few entities, all of which were closely aligned with the Democrat party.  ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN controlled television and radio news.  The New York Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, and Los Angeles Times set the tone for printed news.

The media and leftist politicians they supported were creating narratives to shape public opinion.  They crafted their narratives by being selective in what news they presented, or by outright distortion of facts.  I remember watching Dan Rather on the CBS nightly news in the early 1980s when he read a suicide note on the air.  The author of the note stated that he was committing suicide because Ronald Reagan had taken away his welfare benefits.  This was followed by a series of stories about the damage Reagan’s economic policies were having on the poor in America.  There was no mention of how those policies had also benefited millions.  This was just one of many narratives being crafted for American consumption.

Not All Hispanic Immigrants are Leftists

Unlike the black vote, which unfortunately still appears to be overwhelmingly monolithic, the Hispanic vote is not. And no where is this more apparent than the recent mayoral victory by an Hispanic Republican in a Southern Border city (well, almost) in Texas. It stunned the dems, who I’m surprised didn’t cry voter fraud because of it.

Poor, Disadvantaged Mara Gay sees the American Flag as Disturbing

by: Brent Smith:

Okay – let’s see if I’ve got this straight. A black woman, an American citizen, appears to believe that Old Glory, the American flag, is synonymous with one thing – whiteness. And of course we know what “whiteness” means – racism, naturally.

This = Whiteness?

Now let’s just say, for argument sake, that Mara Gay, the aforementioned black woman, grew up in the projects, felt oppressed by the system and knew nothing but despair her entire life. Maybe, just maybe, I can see how she may feel this way. But this isn’t Mara Gay. read more

Fauci – A Villainous Power-Craven Political Climber

from Conservative Review/the Federalist:

It’s Clear Now Anthony Fauci Isn’t A Fool, He’s A Villain

Lies upon lies, poetic injustice, arrogance, and an agenda that harmed millions of people. A novelist couldn’t have written him better.

A trove of thousands of emails released as the result of a Freedom of Information Act request show that, since the beginning of COVID-19, Anthony Fauci has been just as mendacious as some of his worst critics have alleged. read more

WND Exclusive – Today’s capitalism is not true free-market capitalism

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

There’s nothing capitalist about the “new” capitalism defined by the left. What they describe as “evolving” capitalism is nothing more than warmed over fascism.

In an article in BBC/Future, the author enthusiastically envisions “the next stage of capitalism.”

However, as you read, it becomes obvious that what he is defining as capitalism is nothing like a free-market meritocracy we conservatives characterize. read more

Video Podcast – We need more Diversity in our Crash-Test Dummies

Representative Eleanor Holmes Norton, democrat, Washington DC., believes our nation’s crash-test dummies don’t properly represent the diversity in America.

Allow that to sink in for a second. Yes, she’s concerned with the race and sex of crash-test dummies. This has been a hot-button issue of mine for years and it’s about time someone as intelligent and genuine as the Congressperson shined a light on it.

Just kidding. This shouldn’t be a concern of anyone. But it show’s just how pampered and privileged we are today. The men and women who came before us, fought and died to give us what we have today, would just shake their heads in disgust, that we have nothing better with which to concern ourselves. read more

WND Exclusive – All free thinkers should stand with Israel

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

The so-called Palestinians could have had their own “homeland” long ago if it weren’t for “them Jews” and the Oppressor State, Israel.

This, of course, is the worldwide conventional wisdom.

But as is most often the case, conventional wisdom is wrong. In fact it is the opposite of wisdom for anyone who cares to do just a little research and maintain an open mind.

I realize in this day and age, that’s a big ask. read more

Video Podcast – Faux-Females to Ruin Olympics – New S.C. required Student Reading

Olympic Athletes train for two goals. First to be chosen by your country to represent them, and second to bring home a medal – preferably Gold. And to do this they train most of their lives to get this one shot at being the best. One Shot! And then some guy who thinks he’s a girl is allowed in to undercut the real womens’ life-long dream. That’s seems fair!

The South Carolina Reinforcing College Education on America’s Constitutional Heritage (REACH) Act requires students, at a minimum, to read the United States Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and Emancipation Proclamation in their entireties, as well as “a minimum of five essays in their entirety from the Federalist Papers” and “one or more documents that are foundational to the African American Freedom struggle.”

Well Hooray for South Carolina! read more

Another State Steps Up Against Critical Race Theory

Imagine where we’d be without States Rights in this country.

Imagine if the many Red States throughout America didn’t have the Constitutional authority to control their own States – didn’t have the authority to disregard the out-of-control leftist federal government.

Thank Heavens we don’t have to, because the short answer is we would be toast. But there are a number of conservative legislatures and Governors who are make a real difference and preserving the America we know and love. And just as importantly, pushing back against leftist insanity. read more

We Need More Like Him – Advocates for Natural Immunity

by: Brent Smith

Just imagine where we’d be without constant government threats and faux-guidance regarding what can only be described at this point as a political pandemic. And each time an expert pops his head up to try to inject a little common sense and real medical/scientific expertise, it’s like Biden administration whack-a-mole.
