Rush Limbaugh’s Audience Spikes Up To 27 MILLION!

RUSH: Greetings to you, music lovers, thrill-seekers, conversationalists all across the fruited plain. Time for yet another excursion into broadcast excellence hosted by me, America’s Real Anchorman, Rush Limbaugh, here at the Excellence in Broadcasting Network. Great to have you here.

It’s the most listened to radio talk show in the country. Our audience — get this — the audience is spiking up, 27 million. The way radio audiences are measured, there’s two or three different things that you look at. The average quarter hour, that’s about seven million at any one time is what that means. And during the week we’re at 14 million a day, 14 million total from noon to 3 Eastern.

And then during the week 27 million people, not all at one time, but 27 million cume is what that is. And it continues to spike up out there, and we thank you, and we have the greatest appreciation for it, and we understand why: Me.

RUSH: Mueller Can’t Afford To Come Back And Say He Didn’t Find Anything

RUSH: We’ll start here in Queens. This is Frank. It’s great to have you, Frank. How you doing?

CALLER: Oh, good. Thank you, Rush. A true honor, Rush. A real honor. Thank you.

RUSH: You bet, sir.

CALLER: Rush, you have such a good way of predicting what’s happening. Look in your crystal ball. What’s gonna happen with Mueller at the end? What is he gonna do? What is he gonna say after this investigation?

RUSH: Well, I don’t know specifically what he’s gonna say, but he’s got 17 lawyers, the vast majority of them Clinton. You know, that is a staff size that’s unprecedented in a special counsel investigation. You don’t have nearly — you may have six lawyers. This is plus all the investigators that are out there. Most of these people are dyed-in-the-wool Democrats, donors, and so forth, supporters of Clinton, Obama.

I don’t know what he’s gonna say, Frank, but he can’t afford to come back and say he didn’t find anything. Can’t afford that. The establishment has too much riding on what Mueller’s job is here. He can’t come back and say there’s nothing, and he can’t say, “You know what? When we were investigating, what we really found was illegal activities by Hillary Clinton and her team.” Can’t say that. I mean, Mueller wants to stay in the establishment.

Mueller is one of these invisible, for lack of a better word, he would be one of the pooh-bahs in it, folks. You never see him in the news, nobody ever associates anything with him other than he’s a lawyer at a white shoe firm. He is and would be one of the people that can kick you out of it or let you in it. They’ve got to find something. And they’re gonna keep going until they do. Because the purpose of this investigation is to ultimately find something they can impeach Trump with. That’s what this is.

LIMBAUGH: IT’S OVER! NFL Is Never Gonna Be What It Was

EDITORS NOTE: This Is 2 Segments Combined For Your Convenience

RUSH: I told you the NFL was gone two years ago. When I saw the sports media, which derives its living from this game, all of these sports reporters, commentators, when I saw them jump on this concussion bandwagon and start beating up and creating this image that this game is dangerous, it’s deadly, and the owners don’t care and the commissioner doesn’t care, when that started, when the media started bringing down the very league they cover, I told you two years ago, go back and find the original show, get the tape, it’s over.

We just don’t know it yet, we don’t know when, but it’s over, and it’s happening faster than I thought it would. I’ll tell you something else that’s happening in the NFL that nobody’s talking about yet. All of the mothers and dads at the Pop Warner level, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, not letting their kids play football. Why would you? You can’t watch a football game for the fun of it anymore. Football now is watching in fear that somebody may die. Somebody’s gonna get a brain injury and die. You can’t watch the game the way you used to anymore. That is the impact of this. It is over.

For all practical matters, the NFL is never gonna be what it was. Social activism has taken over. It’s infected. The media, being liberal social activists, have participated in this whether they know it or not. All of these players suspensions, taking your marquee players and suspending them for four games, six games, 10 games, 11 games, thinking that you’re impressing fans, any allegation of spousal abuse, doesn’t matter, we’re gonna get rid of you whether the cops charge you or not. Hello, Ezekiel Elliott. And the media reports this like they love it!

They love this kind of stuff. They love covering suspensions. They love covering court battles. Every that’s got nothing to do with the game. Now, I’m not saying there aren’t some bad actors here; don’t misunderstand. But they’ve always been there. And the fans accepted it, but now that’s becoming what the league is known for, the dangers, the risks, players have brain damage and are gonna commit suicide by the time they’re 50, that’s what people think when they watch games now, you can’t blame ’em. That’s why it’s how it’s been covered.

The movie Concussion. Mike Webster and the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s an evolution that nobody was gonna be able to stop. And, you know, once the left — this is a universal truth — once the left sees something that needs to be fixed, look out. They never fix anything. They just identify something and break it and then make it worse. Nothing is ever resolved. And they’re never happy with whatever result they are given.

RUSH: Trump’s Approval Rating Is UP, And It’s Based Solely On PERFORMANCE

EDITORS NOTE: This Is 2 Segments Combined For Your Convenience

RUSH: Trump’s approval rating, as I mentioned, is ticking back up. This is not supposed to happen. Trump’s approval numbers are supposed to stay down and continue downward once the Drive-Bys think that they are making this happen. But it’s not. The approval rating is ticking upward following his response to the hurricanes. Have you seen any news about that, by the way, folks?

Have you seen a story, have you seen a single story this week about the federal government’s behavior and competence and response to hurricanes Harvey and Irma? You haven’t, have you? Why do you think that is? Why do you think you haven’t? You haven’t seen a story on how well things are going.

Here in Florida, I can tell that Florida Power & Light is so far ahead of schedule in restoring power. I mean, we got it back in four days when we were originally told it could be many weeks. Some people were told the power plant servicing them was seriously damaged and it could be months. But I think over 75% of the people that lost power have had it restored. I mean, it’s still a disaster in many places, but some of the flooded areas, say in Miami, the floodwaters have receded faster than the media suggested would be the case.

But it fascinated me because there’s not a single story about this. And what that must mean, what that must mean is that Trump and the administration are doing a bang-up job with this. And so are the Republican governors in Texas and in Florida.

Because I’m here to tell you, if there were any problems, if there were people being left out, if things weren’t being improved and improved rapidly, then the Drive-Bys would be all over it, and you’d be reading about it. There would be columns, and there would be stories, and there would be panel discussions on the incompetence of Donald Trump. “He just doesn’t know these things,” they would say. “He just doesn’t have the experience,” they would say, “of dealing with a bureaucracy like this.”

And apparently, Donald Trump has real-world experience at building a lot of things and rebuilding a lot things and dealing with disasters like this. And the very absence of any news about this is the truth and the indication. So Trump’s approval numbers are ticking up, in large part, because of the aftermath from the hurricanes. And the UN speech, I guarantee you when they start polling on the approval opinion of Trump after that U.N. speech yesterday, it’s gonna skyrocket. Well, I shouldn’t say skyrocket. But it’s going to trickle-up. It’s gonna move up after that speech yesterday.

And the disconnect on that is breathtaking to behold. You listen to people in the aforementioned establishment — and you can do that by watching anybody in the Drive-By Media — and they think it was embarrassing. Trump overall is embarrassing. His speech was embarrassing. Ew. It embarrassed us, say the Drive-Bys. It embarrassed us, say the members of the establishment. And they want to immediately reach out to their diplomatic brethren in other countries and apologize and say, “Please don’t hold it against us. We didn’t elect him, and we don’t support him. Please, please, do not think he’s speaking for us.”

But yet the Soviet foreign minister praised the speech as one of the greatest of all time that he’s heard.

########################

RUSH: So Trump’s approval numbers are ticking up, and it is based on performance. It is not based on buzz. It’s not based on PR. It’s not based on spin. It’s not based on the media singing Trump’s praises because they’re doing the exact opposite. Trump’s approval number is up from the mid-thirties now to 43%, and it’s based solely on performance.

LIMBAUGH: ‘Dangerous Psychological Territory’ If Hillary Is Harboring The Illusion That She Is Going To Be President

RUSH: Hillary was on NPR Fresh Air yesterday afternoon and the host was Terry Gross. She said that she might contest the election. I mean, it’s lunatic, but here’s what she said.

GROSS: Would you completely rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election if we learn that the Russian interference in the election is even deeper than we know now?

HILLARY: No. I would not. I would say —

GROSS: You’re not gonna rule it out?

HILLARY: No, I wouldn’t rule it out.

RUSH: This woman, folks, is not all there. Obviously she’s on her book tour, her excuse tour, which is embarrassing everybody. Have you noticed the number of Drive-Bys and Democrats publicly saying, “Hillary, pack it in. Hillary, take it somewhere we can’t see it. Stop it. You’re not gonna be the president. You’re not gonna be a nominee again. Stop it. You’re hurting us. You’re causing us big problems. We need a new face. We need a new body. We need a new hairdo. We need everything new. We can’t have you continue.” This is being said in a number of places.

So that was yesterday during the day. Last night she went on Colbert’s show, and, “What do you mean questioning the legitimacy of the election? There’s no constitutional mechanism to question the election. What are you talking about?”

HILLARY: So as I say in the book, nobody’s talking about contesting the election, including me. But I do think — no, because there is no mechanism.

RUSH: Wait a minute. Earlier in the day she told the NPR audience that she was considering contesting. Even if there is no way, no matter what would be judged about the election that she’s going to be president. And if she’s harboring that illusion, then it’s better than we even thought that the woman lost. I mean, this is dangerous, dangerous psychological territory, and we are bearing witness to it here.
