David Limbaugh: Conservative syndicated political columnist and author

A Reagan Forum with David Limbaugh — 1/16/18

January 19, 2018

At this special talk at the Reagan Foundation on January 16, 2018, David discussed the current state of the conservative movement in the age of Trump. He argued that it seems the debate is no longer conservative vs. liberal, but pro-Trump vs. never-Trump. In this divisive era, it has become difficult to share a strong […]

The Press Is Not Above Reproach

At the risk of sending the left into a state of apoplexy, a monolithic, biased, renegade, politicized press is a far greater threat to liberty than a president criticizing the media. Like their First Amendment counterparts — the freedom of religion, the freedom of assembly and the right to petition the government — the freedoms […]

President Trump, Please Stay the Course

January 12, 2018

It would behoove President Trump to keep faith with his base and remain hardcore on his signature issue, immigration, both because it’s the right thing to do and because it’s the wisest political course. Commentators are speculating as to Trump’s motives in conducting a televised bipartisan conference, during which he appeared open to solutions he […]

Underestimating Trump Supporters

January 5, 2018

It is disheartening to see the ongoing rift between those conservatives supporting President Donald Trump and those opposing him — a rift that began before Trump and may survive his presidency. Many conservatives opposed Trump’s nomination because they believed he was not a true conservative — not even really a bona fide Republican — but […]

A Celebration of Life

December 22, 2017

People often lament that in our celebration of Christmas, we tend to lose sight of its true meaning. Not to be a contrarian, but I don’t think the two are mutually exclusive. At Christmastime, we celebrate family, giving, tradition, friendship, community, love, goodwill and so much else that is great and good about human existence. […]

GOP Needn’t Despair About Alabama

December 15, 2017

Republicans should not be disheartened by Roy Moore’s loss in Alabama, because the election had little to do with Doug Jones — and probably even less with Donald Trump or the Republican agenda. Don’t get me wrong. It’s quite troubling that the GOP’s thin Senate majority just became anorexic, but this election by itself is […]

Republican Trump Critics Missing the Boat

December 8, 2017

I am probably too exercised over the never-Trump faction, because in the end, it’s doubtful it is strong enough numerically to make a significant impact on our electoral politics, but it still bothers me to witness intramural conservative battles. I have no quarrel with those who once self-identified as never-Trumpers but now appraise his actions […]

Memo to GOP: Pass the Tax Bill

December 1, 2017

For a host of reasons, it is extremely important that Republicans pass the most pro-growth tax reform bill that can squeak by both houses of Congress. Though President Trump’s tweets and manners upset a lot of people, what seems to be lost in the mix is that his administration is making progress along many fronts. […]

Being Shoved Into Meaninglessness

November 17, 2017

I’m an advocate of higher education and all, but so much for assuming that the development of common sense and sound judgment are part of the package. A Pew Research Center poll found that 77 percent of Democrats with a bachelor’s degree or more believe a person’s gender can be different from the sex they […]

Don’t Mock Prayer. Pray

November 10, 2017

While the unspeakable massacre in a small church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, brought the best out of people there, it triggered the worst in certain others who see everything through their tainted political lenses. House Speaker Paul Ryan tweeted: “Reports out of Texas are devastating. The people of Sutherland Springs need our prayers right now.” […]
