Why Is Rush Limbaugh Changing Course? Labels Marco Rubio A Legitimate Full-Throated Conservative

Talk-show host Rush Limbaugh reportedly has a daily listening audience of twenty-million people.  Until perhaps a week or two ago he delighted his followers with anecdotes and audio clips of Donald Trump “owning” the press corps and media outlets – with example after example of unsuccessful efforts to knock him out of the presidential race. Limbaugh promulgated Trump’s decisive stances on our illegal immigration problem, and his call to stop all Islamic immigration until our officials can figure out why Muslims are in the habit of visiting violence on innocent Americans.

Limbaugh indeed spends a lot of air-time time talking about how great is his influence on the nation’s political scene.  And in that he is correct.  He has also spent a lot of air-time and energy carrying water for the Bush family, in particular with his continuing support of George W. Bush’s decision to invade Iraq and topple Saddam Hussein.  (Enter Arab Spring and the Muslim hijra to Europe.)

Very recently Limbaugh’s approach to Donald Trump’s campaign has noticeably become not so positive, at times bordering on derisive.  Yesterday’s broadcast comments from his website rushlimbaugh.com can be read by clicking here, and here, and here.

As the above video clip (sent to me by Diana West) illustrates, Limbaugh is suddenly touting Marco Rubio as a “legitimate full-throated” conservative, not at all aligned with the GOP establishment RINOs – the ones America voted into office with a mandate to put a stop to Mr. Obama’s immigration policies, his fiscal policies, and his pro-Muslim foreign policies.  And yes, I’m talking here about the very same RINOs who were sworn into office and immediately gave Mr. Obama everything he wanted without any push-back.

Particularly noticeable now is that Limbaugh is willing to overlook Marco Rubio’s repeated efforts to pass legislation which would grant amnesty to millions of people who are in this country illegally, and to provide them a path to citizenship.  Those efforts are not in any way compatible with one who is interested in the welfare of America and her people.  They are not conservatism by any stretch of one’s imagination.  They are indicative of a globalist’s position which has so fed up Americans and given rise to Donald Trump’s campaign.

Readers who have followed this blog are familiar with examples of Rubio’s amnesty for illegal aliens positions.  If you listen and read carefully, Rush Limbaugh now wants us to sort of just forget, or at the very least to mitigate, that part of Marco Rubio’s political persona.

I haven’t forgotten any of it.  And I find it rather strange that Rush Limbaugh has suddenly taken this tack against Donald Trump and for the likes of Marco Rubio.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
