Following a stint as a ticket salesman for Major League Baseball’s Kansas City Royals, in the mid-1980s, Limbaugh landed a job as an on-air host at KFBK in Sacramento, California, with the help of a radio executive friend. There, Limbaugh took over Morton Downey Jr.’s slot, and met with success when his ratings surpassed his predecessor’s. Less than a year later, Limbaugh became known as Sacramento’s top radio host.
In 1987, the Federal Communications Commission repealed a long-standing rule known as the Fairness Doctrine, which required both television and radio stations to air for an equal amount of time each side to a political argument. The repeal of the Fairness Doctrine ultimately paved the way for Limbaugh’s now-distinct, politically conservative radio style to take shape. Not long after, the on-air host left KFBK for a position at the ABC Radio Network, bringing his newfound fame with him, as well as a reputation for having strong, right wing ideologies.
The Rush Limbaugh Show, nationally syndicated from New York City by ABC Radio, premiered on August 1, 1988. Known for its heavy political focus and sometimes extreme conservative slant, The Rush Limbaugh Show has been on the air for more than two decades and is credited today as the highest-rated American talk radio program. The show is currently syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks, and can be heard on nearly 600 stations nationwide.
In addition to his success on the radio, Limbaugh makes regular appearances as a political commentator on various TV programs, and has authored a number of magazine articles and books, including 1992’s best-selling The Way Things Ought to Be and 1993’s See, I Told You So. “It’s my job, it’s my life, it’s my career, it’s my passion,” Limbaugh once said about his politically charged career as a radio host, commentator and writer. “I’m doing what I love. I think I’m doing what I was born to do. I have no specific goals from this point forward. I never have had specific goals. I’ve always thought, ‘I know generally what I want to do. I want to be in media, I want to be in radio.’ It’s what I love. It’s what I do best. And I’m open to all opportunities that come my way.”
Limbaugh was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1993.

So who organized this INVASION making sure thousands of people came with kids and arrived at our border the exact week the IG was releasing the report on Obama's weaponized Intelligence Agencies and Hillary Clinton, that had Barack Hussein's treasonous finger prints all over it? Remember the last 'kids' Invasion that Obama and Soros organized and paid for to make sure the seeding of America with ILLEGALS would continue the assault on our Sovereignty? Over 70,000 of them, and they brought them in from all over South America, including M13 gang members. These people that are now at our border with children, didn't just coincidentally decide to pour in to our Country after having to 'walk' (yeah right) all the way through Mexico and their own Countries (thousands of miles) with no money, no transportation, no organization. Especially all the children that were supposedly alone (no way) and sent by their parents, kidnapped by Illegals being told to bring kids, or picked up off the streets by traffickers. Obama and his Shadow government has STRUCK again. They are not only trying to use it against Trump, but it is a "WAG the DOG" to keep the eyes and ears of the masses away from that IG Report.
I have no more use for liberals. They don’t care. I do.
I am 71 and have NEVER seen such insanity and criminal deviants in the government before!!!!! Especially this so called woman...who bred this POS!!!!
There are 30 entry points on Texas border. If you go through one of them you don’t get separated from kids. It’s when you cross the river and try to hide in a field when you come through illegally then you’re taken to a different holding area and separated because now you’ve committed a crime ..
Hillary Who. Is it the one who ordered all the fire works and the big room with the glass ceiling that lost the election she thought she was going to walk right into. That was just to funny. I would have loved to see her face that night. Didnt anyone take pictures. Any way, who cares what she has to say.
Anyone else tired of the Clintons ... ??
Stop reporting every word she says......I am sick of her and her pathetic whining. she loves any attention she gets. STOP.
We wouldn't have to listen to her at all, if she was in prison where she belongs.
Everyone is making it out that the current administration has come up with all these rules and regulations...their just the first to have the b@#$s and guts to use them...
I’ve NEVER listened to Killary—thanks to the magic of subtitles and written articles. Aside from being an oxygen thief, her screechy, condescending voice is like nails on a chalkboard.
If the media would stop giving her air time she might go away..... just saying. I don’t care what she says , she is crazy!
It is disgusting that this evil woman..with her sick & sordid background was even allowed to run for president. It is even sadder.. that any decent human being voted for her.
I thank God every day she’s not the President- you should check out all the lib pages. They want to do away w the electoral college . Didn’t Hillary say herself that these ppl are a danger to our democracy?? 🤔🤭🤯
I wish they would stop putting her on Fox. Can’t stand the sound of her voice. Thought we were done heading her after she lost but no they have to keep playing her! YIKES
Who's still listening to her? I stopped listening when she told those families a video killed their loved ones.
Shoplifting is a misdemeanor, too. You get caught with your kids in tow guess who gets called? Police and HHS! You’re gonna now have to prove to HHS you’re a good parent.
Rush you’re wasting your time because hillary is the one who belongs in an asylum! I believe that her voodoo has finally backfired and someone is coming to collect.
I know perfectly well that she knows what the law is. The real problem is that she is also well aware that the laws don't apply to certain groups of people.
I've never listened to her. I'd rather hear fingernails on a slate blackboard. It would be more relaxing than her voice.
I'm sorry Rush Limbaugh ..But I do not punish myself..I do not listen to Hillary , Nancy , Pocahontas , those Foul Mouthed Bit%^ from the View or any other Schmuck on the Left...My oldest son was a feel the Burn supporter tore down my Trump sign the day after the election...Holding a political conversation is a trip..Because he thinks you know the left is right ...Hit him with facts and since I'm not his age or a Liberal Professor he gets confused with what I say...So why listen to the Liberals on TV when I can mess with and be nauseated listening to the BS coming from my 25 year old..
Hell she doesn't obey the law herself. How would she know anything about the law? Evidently she doesn't have to obey it, right? Lol
Hillary's time is past. She just can't believe it. Time for her to retire, walk in the woods and bake those cookies for her Grandkids. Be gone from the public since the DOJ & FBI won't do their job and put her in jail.
I swing back and forth between wishing I never had to see her ever again, and chuckling at the crazed-loon-look photo they have come up with this time.
With all of that Suicide Disease That is Highly Contagious Among All Of The Clinton Social Click, one might ask themselves, why haven’t Bill & Hillary Came Down with it⁉️
But there are those who still believe the falsehoods told daily about Immigration and the Laws. This Women is a disgrace and a bad example of any kind of role model. Educators pushing lies and half truths do nothing more than Indoctrinate young minds into believing everything they say is honest and factual in this day and age. The media as far as Journalism is almost nonexistent now. At least honest Journalism that is. Unfortunately the youth of today believe what is said because it comes from an Educator. When most of the time it more their opinions rather than truth. Half truths at the most. Propaganda is an unfortunate part of politics. When pitting one side over the other. Instead of honesty and trying to resolve the many problems that come with illegal immigration we have people pointing fingers and pass it on. Not my problem anymore. And so the problem continues and continues to get so out of control it will Be impossible to fix things and make it right. All I see is Politicians mainly on the Left blaming and feeding off the misery of other human beings. All for Political points and A Vote. That is a sad state for this Country to be in. Yet here we are.

And sadly, nothing will happen to those who broke laws. To arrest them would eventually lead back to president Obama, and require his arrest too. Nobody is going to do that.
At last .....did we know this - I did having studied the JFK, RFK and MLK assassinations. They have unchecked powers and operate in secrecy with out any accountability. Thank God for Trump!
Go get them -- Trey!! When Trey is on fire -- hits his stride -- he is unbeatable!! Turn him loose on Peter Strzok!! Go Trey!!
Stunning when you think about it. Our own FBI trying to affect the outcome of an election. Startling!
While this was going on Democrats started ranting about immigrants and it has been going on for years
Great fireworks show! They haven't even done criminal referral for anyone? Manafort sits in jail Gen. Flynn plead guilty to something that wasn't a crime and others have lost everything! Defending themselves from the FBI and Mueller witch hunt No Trey you gotta do better as a matter of fact do a lot better than that!
It’s all smoke, he’s been on fire before and nothing got done . I’m starting to believe he’s part of the swamp. Another Jeff Sessions
WOW...imagine wanting to start a war with Russia just because your candidate lost....WHAT LOSERS...SICK LOSERS AT THAT..
I’ve always believed that but I seriously doubt anything will happen to any of the top people involved..And that TRULY IS A SAD THING!!!
It took the report to make him a believer. Don't know what he was waiting for. But, glad he is now on board.
But the spineless wimps still have done NOTHING!! Where’s the DOJ? They are in it up to their eyeballs!! Out side prosecutors need to step in and charge them. Get on it!!
Big deal Rush so Gowdy is on fire. He was on fire against Hillary, and Comey and a hundred others who are still walking the street free and helping resist Trump. When I see some of them in handcuffs then I will be glad. Until then it is just a big circus with performing jackasses who try to make us think they care.
Not to mention all of the illegal aliens voting, people that have been dead for years, and let’s not forget the software that Soros has implemented into the electronic voting sites! Lol! No wonder Hillary & Obama were shell shocked! Might I mention that none of these issues have been addressed! Also, the notorious stuffing ballots from the early voting by “ mail!” We have a huge disadvantage going forward! It’s already rigged...
Sure, he attacked them with more talk. It’s been 2 years and it’s all been talk. It is very obvious that there is something wrong with FBI agents conducting an investigation against someone they openly despise yet nothing happens and the investigation goes on.
Have the feeling Mr. Gowdy gave an unwarranted pass to the IG, who soft-soaped the details of his investigation into the FBI’s meddling into the 2016 Presidential election.
It’s over and the left is unhinged! God be with us
One of the first signs the fix was in was FBI didn't seize the DNC Hard Drive or maybe they did and spun what they found into "Russian Collusion" on Trump. They had to counter the damage that was going to be done by wiki leaks and just blaming it on Assange and the worldwide band of hackers in moms basement wasn't sexy enough ... it had to be all put on Putin.... not just one guy holed up in an embassy. They were already surveilling General Flynn and followed him into the Trump circle. I find it interesting that Flynn officially joined Trump Campaign in January 2016 followed immediately by Sessions Hmmm...
I wish every Republican was as outraged as him and get the job done of publically proving how corrupt the FBI and Democrats are.
And if the guilty parties in the FBI are allowed to take the 5th the work that is going to be before us will damage them, the FBI and the country. The country will heal and move on. Not sure sure about these individuals and the FBI however. Someone in the FBI needs to remember WHY they joined the FBI in the first place. In doing so step up, be honest, take your consequences.
They should ALL EVERYONE be prosecuted. Persecuted. Harrased. Threatened. Sent to jail with no bail. Lose everything they own. Be Publically Ridiculed. Shamed. Excoriated...shall I continue? What Goes Around....Comes Around.
What gets me is that anyone is actually SURPRISED that the FBI was interfering in the 2016 election, the 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000, 1996 ... I'm also over people acting like a foreign country meddling in our election is anything new either. We do it to them, why wouldn't they be doing it to us? If we weren't trying to affect an outcome in our favor in another country's election, I would think our CIA was dropping the ball.
Disgraceful, our own FBI interfering with the election, too much of our government is corrupt. How can we trust any of them....makes me sick.
Horowitz is also a Swamper.....how could he put a rubber stamp on the rubbish IG Report he keeps referring to?
He was on fire for two other occasions and they, and him, just fizzled out. I think he sees great financial opportunity in doing these hearings already knowing what the findings will be. Gotta make it look good though! HEY1 That's why Hollywood is so valuable to them. They ahve to learn to convince you that they are someone else. Who best would know!
Trey this,Trey that. He likes the camera. All hat and no cattle. Should of had Clinton up on charges. Future Fox News contributer. So he’s angry at the DOJ stall tactics. Big whoop. He can do a subpoena yet just bs’s.

Funny, I've never seen anyone wearing one of your Rushian hats!
Can you check this out and cover this on your radio show? Thank You. From AtlasMD (Wichita Kansas) ... One reason the system needs to be replaced. I'm presenting at an insurance agent conference and afterwards an agent came up to ask for an rx price quote for a breast cancer medicine. The patient was quoted Walgreens and CVS Pharmacy $1900 and $2200 per month.... @AtlasMD wholesale cost $6.70 #criminal Please share this far and wide!
I want a visor, don't care to wear a hat in summer. Hope they get more gear that women want. I asked about visor and had a call back. Impressed! Will be watching the site so I can order!
Where are the books? Everything I want is sold out! Will you be getting it back in?
I don’t wear garbage same reason I won’t drink out of toilet

Ironic how many smart, strong and capable women President Trump has in his administration and not a word from "feminists"....
Wow, and tell me why Liberals hate this strong woman?
The First Amendment is being sorely abused and hijacked by Corporate Establishment Industry i.e. alphabet Liberal Media that has assumed the position as special pleaders and pom pom dancers for the Marxist Liberal Agenda which is now fundamental to the DNC.
Love this woman!
She's under physical attack b the Left.
Looks like the Department of Homeland Security could be renamed the Department of Hyper Sexuality. A blistering federal discrimination suit accuses agency honcho Janet Napolitano of turning the department into a female-run "frat house" where male staffers were banished to the bathrooms and routinely humiliated. James Hayes Jr., who now is New York's top Homeland Security cop, claims Napolitano filled top spots in Washington, D.C., with two of her gal pals who were bent on tormenting male employees.
She was terrific, intelligent, knows her job, expresses herself... I was impressed.
Hell of a post today, Rush. Read the whole thing. You laid it out 100% truthfully. Its WILD whats going on. Lets flatten the tires on the drive by media
Nothing like a smart confident woman, with virtue and integrity 👍
Kitsjen Nielsen has been doing a FANTASTIC job!!
She's good and the propaganda machine is pathetic. You can tell they're having a very hard time in their new, more defensive position. Instead of calling the shots, and talking points, they're relegated to digging for trivial amounts of dirt, and drivel.
Nothing on networks today but people begging for conflict. Networks are exactly like the pravda propaganda in Russia. It's their job to defend all libs and crucify conservatives.
I don’t know how she Sanders are able to keep their composure.
Kirstjen Nielsen is my hero!!! She is doing what every smart, professional woman would want her to do! She's awesome, tough, well principled and committed to following our laws! Thank you Kirstjen. You are a great example of strength and wisdom! 👍🏻🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
This is what it takes. Strong people who won't back down and who tell it like it is!
Yeeeaaah, Ds, about your claim of a “Republican ‘War on Women’” ... enough already; quit making stupid ad hominem arguments because we deign to disagree with your ineffective policies.

bet you a plug nickel she is libertarian... thats why they are giving her a hard time in the restaurant.
Stormy feels left out since media talking immigration instead of her so she’s going to the border😂😂
She and Sanders deserve a hefty pay raise IMO
She has had it with the media pukes and I don't blame her. I am sick of them
I'm starting to see a team for 2024.... Nicky and Nielsen????
And now shes been runn out of a restaurant and her home is being protested by anarchists ...this is not right
What a bull dog, some of those reporters are going to need new pants.

ACLU actually sued President Obama for detaining legal asylum applicant families specifically as a deterrent and openly admitting that was the plan. It's funny, the more I learn about the issues that are supposed to set me against Trump, the more I am set against Obama.
The Red Hen facebook page...go vote..... do not let the Libs win....Republicans (1 star reviews) were up by 10k last look over 5 star reviews. THIS IS A REFERENDUM ON President Donald J. Trump... SHARE PLEASE.... over 55k reviews and the Libs are closing the margin.... please share and GO VOTE!!
So how long is Rush gone?
I really dont care do u?
While it’s assuring to be in the know media lies and can’t be trusted, it’s an absolute horror at the same time , these are strange times and you gotta wonder how we recover as a nation .
It should say that.
lock n load
In response to all my friends and relatives who are confused by the barrage of devious media reports... I'm sorry, but you cannot avoid the legal vs Illegal aspect in the current news-fad of compassion for immigrants. (First off, I'm not referring to Asylum seeking Refugees, that's a DIFFERENT issue and fully legal to those who report to a U. S. Port of Entry & begin processing--they will not be incarcerated nor separated from families. Don't let the media continue to confuse these two issues) (By the way, people filing for other forms of entry or citizenship at proper ports of entry will also not be incarcerated nor separated from children during processing) So regarding people entering this nation covertly, what's the "better way" that people are suddenly asking for? Open the borders? Why? Because of compassion for a news-touted, news-created-class of people instead of compassion for millions of Americans already living in poverty or untreated / unemployed veteran fighting men? All nations in this world have borders. Mexico has WAY STRICTER immigration laws than we do. Why does Mexico let South/Central American immigrants pass 1,300 MILES or more through their nation from their south border to their north border, to come to the US instead of caring for them there or allowing them to settle down in Mexico? For Mexico's leaders to ask US to loosen OUR immigration laws even further should tell you something about their failing economy not just their leaders' arrogance. My parents didn't come here to turn this nation into Mexico--otherwise why bother? Successful nations have borders to filter incoming people, dictatorships have borders to keep people from escaping. Why do I personally see many non-U.S. people every day here trying to get into President Trump's country? What makes a nation successful? Why didn't the pre-American natives or pre-Mexican, Aztec/Mayan/Inca cultures or dozens of other Central/South American indigenous tribes dominate the land? Why do Muslims want to leave nations where they already have all their restrictive & family-honor-killing allowing, anti-Judeo/Christian laws in effect with SYSTEMIC corruption & failing financial/business/science cultures to come to a nation that already has successful financial / business / science cultures with our NON-systemic corruption then try to lower it down to their standards at expense of demolishing the religious morals & freedom that made America the target of ALL pilgrims? Why did Obama implement awkward programs to graft Muslim cultures (Not Jewish, not Christian, not Buddhist, not Hindu) into the previous historical successes of NASA? Which nations invented cars, rockets, aircraft, transistors, computers, your cellphone, etc? Show me the "Silicon Valley" or "Detroit Car Factories" of Iran? What happened to the intelligent, non-radical Iranians who received electronics/radar/and air traffic control training alongside U. S. Airmen at Keesler Air Force base before the Shah of Iran was deposed by the Ayatollah? (One of whom's toddler son I rescued from drowning in an Oakwoods Apartments swimming pool in Biloxi in 1978) Yes, the U.S. and Russia both had great help from illustrious German scientists like our Werner Von Braun, who gladly saw the potential for scientific exploration, not just making V2 rockets in Germany to kill British. Go look at the conquest history of the Mores/Muslims across Europe, Africa, parts of Asia. Notice the timeline of how many instances they conquered/enslaved Judeo/Christian countries until Crusaders beat them back. (Spain is one example I remember off hand) Of course modern CNN-worshipping Liberals have been attempting to slander the Crusaders into evil villains. For what? Maybe to bleach out Judeo/Christian religions & values to please the atheists? All that's going to accomplish is clear the way for the next Muslim invasion / enslavement. Why aren't the Muslims targetting heavily religious Buddhist or Hindu nations but instead deeply infiltrating Great Britain, Germany & other successful nations. (by "infiltrating" I mean overtaking government positions of power to replace age-old American laws with Sharia) This intercontinental issue of border control has many complexities & cannot be simplified into a "Let Everybody In." answer. So do not be among the gullible whom the biased media lure into this trap using their already enemy-proven, "EXAGGERATE-or-FABRICATE-then-SATURATE" propaganda tactics that we learned about in Air Force Survival School's POW training.
I honestly don’t care wtf you say Rush you are a racist sobs and I honestly know with millions of other the devastation trump is causing to minority’s and children so save your lies you may need it for another moron
