David Limbaugh: Conservative syndicated political columnist and author

I Wish I Were as Bad a Christian as Mike Pence

February 16, 2018

I’ve repeatedly said that though President Trump gives his leftist enemies plenty of fodder in his tweets to attack him, they would malign any Republican president unless he totally capitulated to their demands — and switched parties. Indeed, they always have. The liberals say Trump is such an awful person, which apparently excuses their monomaniacal […]

There’s So Much Smoke. Why Worry About a Fire?

February 9, 2018

What are we to make of the GOP and Democrats’ dueling scandal wars? So much information, so little time. We’ll have to wait until special counsel Robert Mueller completes his investigation to be sure, but I don’t believe there’s any credible evidence that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to affect the presidential election. On the […]

Democratic Leaders, Why Do You Find Patriotism Divisive?

February 2, 2018

Did you ever think you’d see the day when a prominent political party would accuse the president of being divisive and exclusionary for saying “America” too many times during his State of the Union speech? The American Civil Liberties Union made that very complaint. No, the ACLU is not the Democratic Party, but their positions […]

Hollywood’s Secular Clerics

January 26, 2018

Swell, our beloved Hollywood stars are busy crafting their politicized speeches for the Academy Awards program. I’ll bet you can’t wait. Oscar-nominated English actor Daniel Kaluuya, in an interview with W magazine, opined that racism is more pronounced in America than in Britain. So happy to learn this and can’t wait for his upcoming lecture. […]

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 […]
