Rush Limbaugh has passed away

Rush Limbaugh has passed away


Just announced by his wife on his show. I suspected something was up when he repeatedly cancelled out of shows recently.

It’s an understatement to say that we have lost a giant. He was so much more. He was a cheerleader and clairvoyant. In the face of mainstream media lies and collusion, he was a voice of fresh air that kept our spirits up. He was the target of cancel culture before we even knew the term.

About a year ago he announced his cancer diagnosis.

Rush was a fan of Legal Insurrection, and multiple times read our posts on air.

My post, Media Matters astroturfed the Limbaugh secondary boycott was The Blog Post That Drove Rush Limbaugh to Tweet.

Here was Rush’s broadcast on March 1, 2012, regarding the death of Andrew Breitbart.

And his award of the Medal of Freedom.

May he find comfort in the arms of Angels…

RIP Rush Hudson Limbaugh 1951-2021. A great inspiration to so many Americans.

Rest In Peace you dear, sweet man.

Talent no longer on loan from God.

The Man, The Legend.
Rest in peace Rush

Irreplaceable indeed.
I remember the first time I heard Rush, maybe in 1986 or so, in Southern California.
I was working as a prosecutor, and a LASD Homicide Detective told me “Hey, you should listen to this guy Rush Limbaugh”. I did, and listened thousands of times more during the next 30 or so years.
He single handedly transformed talk radio, and more importantly, politics in this country.
RIP to a good man who has made this country better.

RIP from a Rush Baby and Dittohead, El Rushbo. You’ll be missed!

Irreplaceable indeed. The reporter montage is one gift of many he gave to us.

God bless you, sir. Started listening when it was “America Held Hostage, Day 1”. I pray you are at peace, while I also pray for our country. You shall not be forgotten.

I started listening to Rush around 1981. He enlightened me in so many, many ways over the years. Irreplaceable for sure, and a great American. Dear God above, I will truly miss that man. Rest in Peace Rush.

Rest in peace, Happy Warrior!

Had he remained in NY he’d still be able to vote.. 🙂

Rush Limbaugh showed us how it was done.
Now he is gone and we must carry on using what we learned.

    Donald Trump also showed us how it’s done. Rand Paul is showing it as well. So is Devin Nunes. So is Jim Jordan. So is Ben Shapiro (most of the time). So is Majorie Greene. So is Tucker Carlson. There are many more.

    And let’s give credit where credit is due: Prof. William Jacobson.

    I posted this elsewhere:

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.

the cause of liberty has lost a powerful voice–thank you, sir, for your long and faithful service to us all

may you rest in peace

Irreplaceable. One of a kind. I’ll never forget the first time I heard him. It was an eye opening moment. RIP.

We knew this day was coming..and soon.. but it is never easy. Rush had his “three score and ten” and made the best of it… for all of us. Now he can be at peace. The Limbaugh School for Advanced Conservative Studies has lost its president but the alumni are ready to continue our education …. independent studies now…and use them to continue on to fulfill American Greatness.

G.O.A.T. Found his TV show way back when, have appreciated listening to him ever since. He will be missed.

I started listening when he syndicated in August 1,1989. He was a constant companion as I drove to appointments. No matter the state or town, he was available to keep me company. Now over the last 4 years as we traveled the USA in our motorcoach, he was a constant between 12-3. A nice break from music. Always funny, sarcastic and pin point accuracy when it came to Democrats. Never failed to highlight their absurd policies.
Not sure how anyone can step into that time slot.
RIP friend!

What a great loss to our country, if not the world.

Though I never met him, his passing is nonetheless a personal loss to me. He was an anchor.

    Mine too, he centered me when I was anxious
    Helped me see the light…

    It feels like the whole world has gone dark

      When someone that spiritually great in our lives passes, it’s tragic, but sadly natural.

      The idea is to carry on what they accomplished. In death, Rush Limbaugh could become more powerful than he was in life.

      We need to aggressively honor Rush, and build monuments to him where ever we can.

      His wife Kathryn, seems to be quite the entrepreneur. We can only hope Rush planned for his passing by providing for activism run by Katheryn. She reminds me of Melania Trump: she was accomplished before she met her rich husband. Both Melania Trump and Kathyrn Limbaugh could go on to do great things.

      don’t lose heart–there’s a lot of good we can do yet

Blessed be the Judge of Truth.

R.I.P. Rush. You taught me so much and I will miss you.

His memory is and will continue to be a blessing to us all.

How few of us will ever leave a legacy like Rush. I will raise a glass to him tonight – God Bless and Rest in Peace.

You will be greatly missed. I hope you will be the country’s advisor in heaven.

He evolved, as will we all, some day. RIP

My dearest friend, I’ve never met. Rush, you’ll be dearly, dearly missed. Many prayers to Kathryn, David, and family

Will there be any prominent Leftist who won’t join in the torrents of vitriol, venom, and hatred that we will see following this announcement?

Why was Ashli Babbitt killed?

Taiwanese Lady | February 17, 2021 at 1:26 pm

A sad day indeed.

But February made me shiver
With every paper I’d deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn’t take one more step
I can’t remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride
Something touched me deep inside
The day El Rushbo died

So, bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
And them good ol’ boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singin’, “This’ll be the day that I die”
“This’ll be the day that I die”

Morning Sunshine | February 17, 2021 at 1:27 pm

his website is overwhelmed. I cannot log in today 🙁

I spoke to him once. I got in on the show. May he rest in peace, and while I feel we need him, he has left a good backup bench lineup to continue the fight.

The first time I heard Rush I was the gunner on an M1-A1 Abrams and we were taking a break on top of the turret. The TC fired up his boom box and said you guys have got to hear this.

The very first thing I heard was his Animal Rights Update theme song that featured Andy Williams singing Born Free with the sound of machine gun fire and screaming in the background.

I laughed so hard I nearly fell off the damn tank. From that day forward, I was a fan. He had the perfect mix of information, inspiration, and humor. He will be greatly missed.

My sadness at hearing abput this is profound. Words fail me…

I knew met him or spoke to him, but this feels like a death in the family.

Rest in Peace, Rush. A life well-lived.

Tony Branco will likely do a cartoon marking Rush’s passing, and I submit the following idea.

We see Rush standing at the Pearly Gate with St. Peter and he says to Rush, “Mega-dittos from the Big Guy, Rush!”

I know how copyright law works and disclaim any copyright in this idea.

Oh, how we cried the day you left us
We gathered ’round your grave to grieve
Wish I could see the angels faces
When they hear your sweet voice sing
Go rest high on that mountain
Rush your work on earth is done
Go to heaven a-shoutin’
Love for the Father and the Son

Another giant leaves us behind. Hope to see him again one day in the not too distant future.

RIP and fair winds and following seas to the man who refined and shaped my views after I became a Reagan Democrat and gave voice to my conservative self. I thought I was the only one who despised Bill Clinton until I heard Rush’s show one afternoon being blasted from our staff engineer’s office at a CINCLANTFLT subordinate command. “America held hostage” became my rallying cry every afternoon in my own office. God bless Rush and all those who loved him as I did.

I’m heartbroken. Been a talk radio fan since the early 80s.
Afraid it was coming but wished and prayed it wouldn’t.
As he said never give up and keep fighting for what’s right.

Rush was my introduction to conservatism. I was challenged by my then boyfriend to listen to Rush for a month. It was hard at first but little by little my eyes were opened.

I’m so sad. I knew this was coming but I’m not ready to say goodbye.

“He was a great man, take him for all in all,
We shall not look upon his like again.” W.S.

We all knew it was going to happen, but it was still too soon. When he announced his cancer diagnosis, I renewed my 24/7 membership for another year and sent a personal message that he couldn’t die until he fulfilled it. He almost made it. Sad day.

I started listening to Rush during the 1991 election and when Clinton won I remember his whole America Held Hostage thing.

Listened to him ever since.

I don’t think there is anyone alive today and on radio that can come close to his greatness. He was a radio broadcaster that just had that connection with listeners that was special in a way you thought he was talking to you alone.

The world is going to miss him…..

Listening to Rush Limbaugh beginning in 1991 is how I got started to being the independent conservative pundit I am today. The Professor is right: Irreplaceable is the only fitting word. My heart is broken into 1000 pieces, and I am finding it hard to breathe.

Rest in Peace, Rush. You will be remembered.

“And [Job] said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.”

America’s Living Legend has passed. As much as I like a number of the other guys currently on the air, I daresay that none of them can fill Rush’s shoes. He will be sorely missed.

If you are spiritual, and at all religious, there could be a message in this from G-d:

“I gave you 30 years of Rush Limbaugh. I gave you Donald Trump. While I am taking Rush Limbaugh, I am taking him so YOU pick up the fight against fascism yourself – like a child turning adult, being set out to make it on his or her own. Let’s see if you deserved him. Don’t make me take Donald Trump, too.”

Heed the warning.

Very sorry to see him go, but I am glad that he is no longer suffering.

Thank you Rush, for your work and your generous charitable contributions, many of which you kept secret. Rest well. You’ve earned it.

Only one man that can replace him….yeah, that one. Get ready, here it comes

A man, a legend, a way of life. Rush may be gone, but he continues in all of us.

Thank You, Rush, for all the good years! REST IN PEACE

Only a few sites where I will read the comments today. The lump in my throat is eased when I read these here. He helped me in so many ways. Prayers for his wonderful family and following.

Tens of millions of us want to pay our respects. If anybody hears about a national movement to pay tribute to Rush in some small way – say light a candle (or cigar) at a certain time – or whatever, please share. I bet millions of us will brave the freezing cold to ask God to take good care of his soul.

    Why don’t we start one? Given that Rush’s show ran from 1-3, I’m going to light a stogie in his honor at 1 this Saturday (2/20/21). Who’s with me? If you don’t smoke, lighting a candle would be an appropriate substitute.

I keep straining my ears to hear a sound
Maybe someone is digging underground
Or have they given up and all gone home to bed
Thinking those that once existed must be dead

Have you seen my wife Mr. Jones
Do you know what it’s like on the outside
Don’t go talking too loud you’ll cause a landslide
Mr. Jones

Andrew Breitbart called Rush “Professor Limbaugh,“ because he learned so much from him.

I bought a new van in ’88. It was intended by the dealer for someone wanting to do some custom work and only had an AM radio. I figured upon changing the radio but meanwhile, tuning into AM I ran across this guy, someone finally telling it like it is, not pulling punches, and always truthful. It helped that he was a radio showman.

I never did change the radio.

Rest in Peace Rush. Few men have ever had the impact for good that you have had. Thank You.

Rush Limbaugh did not “pass away”.

People in trailer parks pass away.

Rush Limbaugh died an honorable death, an admirable death like a citizen of ancient Greece or Rome would have aspired to achieve.

How that goofy euphemism has taken hold is a mystery to me but I must take exception when it is used in this case.

    I would say he finished well.
    His body may have died, but he did not. He was called home by his Lord!
    That is actually cause for celebration!

My mom is just beside herself. My parents were devoted listeners of Rush. My dad passed away in Dec of 2017. When Rush announced he had cancer, my mom panicked. She didn’t know how she could live in a world without both my dad AND Rush.

I had no idea Rush’s passing would affect me the way it has. I can’t stop crying.

Thank you, Rush for being you!

On yesterday’s show, frequent guest host Todd Herman was behind the Golden EIB Microphone. It was a combination of his commentary and some choice moments and segments from the past.

He was having a really hard time keeping his composure, but he powered through, and did a great job. I would have broken down.

They’re still running relevant Rush Morning Updates from the past on my local station. It’s hard to believe that he’s gone.
