Rush Reveals What Makes Liberal Outrage About Carson’s Comments Beyond Hypocritical

Media uproar over Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson’s statement that a Muslim should not be president shows the hypocrisy of liberals, radio commentator Rush Limbaugh said this week.

“There’s nothing intolerant about what Ben Carson said,” Limbaugh said.

“It’s rooted in Sharia law.  Sharia law runs counter to the US Constitution.” he explained, noting that Sharia law justifies beheading rape victims and forbidding women from driving. “Ben Carson could not be more right. And the question he was asked was in that context. ‘Well, do you believe that Islam is consistent with the Constitution?’ Well, Sharia law isn’t.”

Limbaugh saved his biggest dose of scorn for liberals who have defended the concept of a Muslim president–but not an evangelical Christian one.

“How many times do you remember various leftists saying we ought not ever have a Christian as president?  Specifically an evangelical Christian.  … Remember Pat Robertson ran for the presidency once?  All the people running, ‘We can’t have that in the White House, what if he imposes his religious views on the country?’ Which meant anti-abortion,” Limbaugh said.

“There have been countless Republican presidential candidates who have been open and honest about their evangelical Christianity, and the media, various Democrats, commentators, pundits, have written gazillions of words warning everybody about the calamity that could happen to this country if we were to ever elect an evangelical Christian,” Limbaugh said. He noted that after Carson’s comments, “all hell is breaking loose, by the same people who say, no, no, no, way to an evangelical Christian, even though we’re a Christian nation, as founded.”

“The furor over this, it’s totally manufactured and made up,” Limbaugh said. “And the furor is not about this specifically, but it’s about giving the media another chance, or better stated, the media taking another opportunity to point out in their minds that Republicans are bigots.”

Limbaugh noted the difference between support for Islam and Christianity.

“We have a nation filled with apologists for Islam, as you know,” he said. “9/11 happens, militant Islam kills 3,000 Americans, and all of a sudden there’s a giant Islamic apologist group in this country that grows and grows and grows.”

Rush Reveals Sinister Reason He Thinks The Media Is Hyping This GOP Candidate

Rush Limbaugh recently advanced the reason he believes that the media are “hyping” Carly Fiorina.

A caller to Rush Limbaugh’s program on Friday stated that the media is hiding the dirt on Carly Fiorina. They claimed that Fiorina is a “political insider” and that she will do “anything she can to get ahead.”

Limbaugh explained the reason he believes the media is “hyping” Fiorina: they want to get rid of Trump. Furthermore, he said: “This is the mistake people are making. It’s not that they like Fiorina. They never liked McCain. They just made him think they did and everybody else. They don’t like any Republican.”

Limbaugh stated that this was “not hard to see” saying, “The woman came out against abortion! They are never going to support this woman…They love what supporting her now might enable them to accomplish, and that is get rid of a Republican who can win.”

Limbaugh added: “Do not mistake this. Look, this is very, very important for everybody to understand. And the reason it’s very, very important is this is how they choose our nominees for us. This is how they choose our candidates for us, by making us think they like them.”

Is Limbaugh correct? Is the media hype over Fiorina simply a ploy to make sure Trump doesn’t win the nomination?


Rush Just Made A HUGE Revelation About ‘Anchor Babies’ That No One Realizes

On his syndicated radio show Thursday, Rush Limbaugh noted that the United States is one of only two countries that give automatic citizenship to children born on their land.

Limbaugh quoted an article published in March by The Fiscal Times. “Among developed nations, only the U.S. and Canada still offer automatic citizenship to children born on their soil. Not a single European country follows the practice,” author Liz Peek wrote. The article continued:

We take this right for granted, but the evidence is that this entitlement encourages a booming birth tourism business (which undermines our immigration objectives) and virtually guarantees that the number of people in the country illegally will continue to grow.

“Did you know that?” Limbaugh asked his audience rhetorically. “In other words, let’s say that you live in Morocco, and you want to go to London. You go to London, you’re a woman and you get pregnant, you give birth, your kid is not a citizen of the U.K. The United States and Canada still are the only countries, developed nations, that offer automatic citizenship to children born on their soil. Not a single European country follows the practice.”

“For prosperous Chinese or residents of unstable countries like Russia, an American passport represents an invaluable safety net,” Peek wrote. “Some estimate that as many as 40,000 children from all over the world are born under such circumstances in the U.S. each year. Over time, with family members climbing aboard, the total allowed into the country multiples.”

Once those babies turn 21, and if they are in the country, they can sponsor other family members to enter the U.S. Under our law, which promotes family unification, parents, siblings and minor children of a U.S. citizen are welcome. According to a report from John Feere of the Center for Immigration Studies, admitting family members account for most of the nation’s growth in immigration levels. Of the 1,130,818 immigrants who were granted legal permanent residency in 2009, a total of 747,413 (or, 66 percent) were family-sponsored immigrants.

The issue of birthright citizenship has recently come to the forefront among the Republican presidential candidates. Donald Trump, for example, has proposed an immigration plan that would revoke birthright citizenship altogether. In an interview with Bill O’Reilly Tuesday, Trump contended the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution does not guarantee birthright citizenship. Another so-called top tier candidate, Gov. Scott Walker, agrees.

But former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida said Tuesday that birthright citizenship is a “constitutionally protected right” and “doesn’t support revoking it.” Former Hewlett-Packard executive Carly Fiorina believes it would take a constitutional amendment to revoke birthright citizenship. “It’s part of our 14th Amendment. So honestly, I think we should put all of our energies, all of our political will into finally getting the border secured and fixing the legal immigration,” she told NBC News Monday.

Limbaugh Just Made A HUGE Statement About Trump And People Who ‘Love America.’ Many Will Be Furious…

Donald Trump — the Republican candidate who launched and has built his 2016 campaign on the problem of illegal immigration and what to do about it — is getting blasted in the mainstream media after he issued a 1,900-word policy paper on the emotionally-charged, politically tricky subject. Trump’s position is being characterized, essentially, as: round up and deport the illegals and build a big wall on the southern U.S. border.

Media criticism ranges from dismissive to scathing. A New York Times article observes: “So much for Republicans wooing Hispanic voters with a more moderate tone.” An editorial in The Washington Post declares: “Donald Trump’s immigration plan would wreak havoc on U.S. society.” An opinion piece by a member of the USA Today board of contributors — a piece published online by CNN — calls Trump’s plan “clueless,” adding that “his ideas are impractical at best and at worst inhumane.” Writer Paul Reyes argues that Trump’s plan is extreme and veers “far to the right of the American mainstream.”

However, radio talker Rush Limbaugh contends that “The Donald” is right in line with mainstream thinking on illegal immigration. Limbaugh told his millions of listeners on Monday that the liberal media and inside-the-Beltway politicians of both parties just don’t get how upset most Americans are about what’s happening to the country because of unchecked illegal immigration:

Trump’s the only guy standing up against it… I don’t think these people have any idea just how angry, frightened, fearful, a pretty big majority of the people in this country are, that we are losing the country, and we’re losing it because of immigration… And they see both parties in cahoots to make it happen, and they don’t understand it. People that love America do not understand this.

The popular conservative radio host argues that Trump’s appeal and his top position in the polls rests on his firm and unwavering stance on the issue of illegal immigration, which sets him apart from the other sixteen Republicans vying for the party’s nomination.

“Now, the inside-the-Beltway people, when they hear that, they cringe, ‘Oh, my God…oh, God.’ [But the] people are standing up and cheering,” claims Rush. “They don’t want their country given away, for crying out loud!… I’m telling you, that one has people standing up and cheering.”

Limbaugh says the Trump plan on immigration — illegal and legal — will appeal not only to Republican voters upset with the status quo, but also to Democrats and Independents. And as Breitbart News points out, Trump has been working with conservative Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions in crafting the candidate’s detailed immigration plan for America. That’s a political alliance that could add legitimacy and momentum to Trump’s policy platform.

“Sen. Sessions, Chairman of the Senate’s Immigration Subcommittee, is widely regarded as the gold standard on immigration. Sessions has also become the intellectual thought leader in the Republican Party on appealing to the blue collar voters who have been abandoned by their political leaders,” notes Breitbart.

Rush Limbaugh Just Gave Trump A Big Piece Of Advice Almost Everyone Can Agree With

A man who has spent decades sharing his opinions with millions of adoring fans admitted recently that he isn’t sure what to think of Donald Trump’s continued success among Republican presidential primary candidates.

“I have to tell you, folks,” radio host Rush Limbaugh told listeners Monday, “it’s uncharted territory for me, anyway. I can’t come here with a firm, ‘This is what I think about this or that’ because I really have to sit here and just observe more of it as it plays out.”

He did acknowledge that Trump’s campaign has resonated across the U.S.

“I’m just objectively looking at this,” Limbaugh said. “Trump is popular for a host of reasons. One of the reasons Trump is popular is because of the positions he has articulated on issues that a significant number of Americans consider to be very important, and he has said things on those issues that this significant number of Americans happen to agree with.”

Limbaugh did have some advice for the surging White House hopeful as primary season continues.

He said it would be in Trump’s “best interest” to once again utilize the formula that was largely responsible for his initial popularity.

“I’m not presuming to tell Mr. Trump what to do,” he explained, “but I just think you dance with the ones who brung you. You never forget why you are someplace, and he’s there because of issues. It’s time to hear more from Mr. Trump on other issues that are also considered to be very important, and if he does that, then he’ll take the rest of the campaign with him.”
