I don't know about you, but it hit me hardest on Monday.
Hearing Kathryn's calm, controlled voice, making that announcement we all knew was coming, on the previous Monday wasn't such a gut-punch, because somehow, deep down, we knew it was coming. If the last week of no-Rush-radio was really due to a "treatment week", we think Rush would have announced it ahead of time. We knew, without being told, he had taken a turn for the worse, and perhaps his time on earth was up.
We prayed for his immortal soul before Kathryn's announcement, and we prayed for his immortal soul after her announcement.
But the loss didn't really hit me until Monday of this week. After every weekend, the confident voice of Rush on Monday was always something really, really looked forward to. Rush had become an addiction of sorts. His common sense was needed; his refreshingly bold, in your face conservatism, his both moral and constitutional take on the events of the weekend, spoken with admirable command of the English language, and, perhaps most importantly of all, with humor.
With that very special, unique, let's-lighten-it-up Rush humor.
Rush always made listener's smile, he often made them chuckle, and very importantly, to me, he quite often induced an actual, good old fashioned belly laugh.
None of any of the other conservative radio talk show hosts ever did that.
Well, maybe Mark Steyn, but the only time we ever heard Mark around here was when he filled in as a guest-host for Rush. Mark, too, has a way of squeezing humor out of a pronouncement of the real truth behind some political matter. And that is a rare talent; rare indeed.
What I mean to say is that Rush was more than a mere commentator or conservative translator of current events. He was an entertainer. He was entertaining. He was comedic. Right in the midst of being quite intellectual and highly moral in whatever he was saying or whatever principle he was defending against the enemies of intellect, the enemies of morality and the enemies of fixed principles, he could be funny.
Who is out there now, on that national level, who does or who could do a conservative radio talk show the way Rush did it?
Glenn Beck? No. If Glenn can't even take a loyalty oath to his own nation, then he has been fooled into being an anti-American Globalist.
Brian Kilmeade? No. He doesn't even see the 2020 election fraud as an election fraud, but as just another election with some fraud in it, and no big deal. And he doesn't see the current regime and the rest of the swamp as an anti-American entity aiming to take America down; he sees it only as politics as usual, like the rest of the Fox News network today.
And when he gets excited about whatever he is saying, his voice rises almost to squeal level and he runs his sylables and words so closely together that his tongue stumbles over them and he has to repeat a lot of them two or three times to get them out right.
Sean Hannity? No. His memorized long litanies and lists and repetitions are the opposite of entertaining, which is to say, boring. He is conservative, true enough, but he is no Rush. There is a rule of the English language that says you should not begin a new sentence until you finish the sentence you are in. An English sentence is supposed to contain a complete thought. Sean can go through an entire monologue without ever finishing the very first opening sentence. His monologues, and quite often even his questions to whomever he is interviewing, are all sentences within sentences within sentences, ad infinitum. And most of the time in in super-angry rant mode.
Again, like with Kilmeade, newsworthy, but not entertaining, and still leaning more to unifying than dividing.
Like President Trump, but before President Trump, Rush saw what we all saw, and gave a big public voice to it, and nobody else was saying it then, and nobody else is saying it now. Well, maybe Mark Levin, on Life, Libery and Levin.
Rush saw the merging going on between the increasingly Fascistic Crony-Capitalist billionaires of Social Media and the Internet, and the moguls of the News Media, with the increasingly Fascistic Political Parties that were already illegally running the American government right over the top of the Constitution and the law.
The billionaire Crony-Capitalists are not really Capitalists, per se, but something close to the opposite. They seek to brutally control the once free market, not compete in it. As does the current O'Biden regime.
All anyone has to do is look at the true histories of lands gone Marxist, whether they call themselves Communist or Fascist, to see where this is going. And if Rush could see it, and all of us can see it, then why can't the talking-heads, the anchors, the analysts, the commentators and the talk-show hosts of Fox News see it? It's right there in front of their faces.
Some of them claim to be historians, and yet, they cannot see the clear linkage between what's happening in America today and the history of Marxism. Indeed, they see nothing wrong and everything right with having Socialist analysts / commentators among them to give "fair and balanced" political platforms to Constitutional America's mortal enemy factions.
The history of Marxism is right there in front of them.
Yet, Fox News berates President Trump for "dividing the party" when he should be trying to "unite us all".
We should unite with evil?
Why do they insist that President Trump should "bring us all together"?
There are two possibilities:
There is a time to unite, and a time to divide. This is not a time to unite.
These are the facts testifying against indiscriminate unifying:
Every "Gang Of Eight" accomplishment that was ever achieved brought Constitutional America a little closer to her own destruction. Every "Bipartisan Cooperation" between Parties to "get something done" watered down the advertised purpose of the weaker Party.
And the supposed purposes of Parties continuously "evolve" anyway.
Today we don't have separate Parties any more anyway. There is no Maxocrat Party and there is no Republcirat Party; they have been merged into the Unicrat Party, which is to say, the increasingly Fascistic Washington Swamp.
And if President Trump is "dividing the Republicrat Party" that's a good thing. It deserves to be divided, destroyed, and trampled under foot. As do all Parties. The Parties are the problem here.
Lord, how I miss Rush.
If his show is to continue, my vote would go to Mark Steyn as a permanent fill-in for Rush. While he is no Rush, no one else is either.
My only problem with Mark is regarding his horrible foreign accent. But all accents bother me, because we come from Michigan, the only place on earth where the language is spoken perfectly, and properly, with no discernible accent whatsoever. Our grammar school teachers learned us all good talkin'.
Mark, a self-confessed undocumented anchor-baby with no supporting documentation whatsoever, speaks the language with that weird accent of the English half of the Canucks, and the Brits, but not as bad as the Ausies. Still, his is an easier dialect to decipher that those of the Baastonians, the New Yawkahs or the New Joiseyites.
Mark comes closest to the Rush mark because he is both entertaining and profound, as well as fully comprehending of the importance of what it means to be an American, and the vital importance of keeping the Rule Of Law over and above the Rule Of Man. He is quick of wit, and able to keep to a topic of vital importance and be funny, amusing and entertaining at the same time. And that's rare.
We miss you, Rush; you are permanently in our prayers for the dead, and we appreciate the now ongoing reminiscing and replays of your voice on the EIB network, for however long that may go on. America is in your debt.
As for America, what will be will be. She was very good to all of us.
We still have Trump, and America still lives. There is always hope.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Sign the Letter to your Bishop, and make our Church Catholic again.

Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
