Rush Limbaugh made this jaw-dropping announcement about his next career move

Rush Limbaugh is America’s self-described anchorman and the most popular voice on all of talk radio.

But some of Limbaugh’s listeners were wondering if he was getting ready to make a change.

And Rush Limbaugh made this jaw-dropping announcement about his next career move.

Limbaugh made waves when he slammed Fox News as the “Never Trump Network” after left-wing hosts like Shepard Smith and Chris Wallace routinely spread fake news and misinformation about Donald Trump.

Within days Smith was out at Fox News asking the network to let him out of his contract.

Conservatives celebrated this development, as Smith was nothing more than a partisan hack passing off his Left-wing political opinions as “news.”

The talk quickly turned to who would replace Smith.

And Limbaugh revealed many of his friends and fans suggested he take over the 3PM hour on Fox News.

But as Limbaugh explained, that would not be in the cards.

Limbaugh stated:

A lot of people have said, “Rush, why don’t you, when you finish at 3 o’clock, why don’t you just turn on the camera in there and let Fox hire to you replace Shep Smith. I mean, you could segue from your show to the 3 o’clock audience over at Fox.” You know why this is being suggested, is because Shepard Smith abruptly left the network last week in circumstances that are still a bit cloudy and mysterious.

Folks, let me tell you something. I have nothing left to prove. I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I have built radio stations. I have built audiences. I don’t need to prove I can do that anymore. And the truth of the matter is that the Fox News audience at 3 o’clock — don’t tell anybody. Can you move in a little closer? The Fox News audience at 3 o’clock, it’s one of the most misunderstood — it’s not much. It’s just not much. And, of course, that would never be mentioned as a factor in anything going on.

I appreciate the suggestions. And people were serious about it. But, I must decline, using the same answers in theory I gave to a very great caller last week wondering: Why aren’t you on YouTube video, and why aren’t you on Facebook, and why aren’t you on Twitter? I am right where I belong. I am right where I need to be, and I’m very sated, satisfied with it.

Based on Shepard Smith’s partisanship, dishonesty, and nastiness on the air, almost anyone would be an improvement.

While it might be Rush Limbaugh, Fox News viewers are hoping the network picks a real news anchor to replace Smith.

  2. Rev. Wayne Hill Sr. says:

    Rush CREATED the Conservative venue, breed the Conservative genre and gave voice to the Silent Majority’s common sense attitudes, values and concern for their fellow citizens, rather then the liberals camouflaged concern, solely for dictatorial POWER OVER everyone except themselves! Rush , you are a power unto yourself, you have NO muzzlers, no blackmailer employer, no Board Committee to stifle your FREE SPEECH and FREEDOM to ESPOUSE OUR kindred views and VALUES! Keep your Steed strong, Your ARMOR Shiny and your voice strong and clarion loud! WE are with YOU, you DITTO HEAD BEACON !

  3. Will Triebel says:

    Rush already owns his own network, he should turn it into a real conservative news channel. Then he could replace MSDNC while OAN replaces CNN.

    In 1991, when I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area from San Diego, my friend from college, Chris Hull (attending grad school at UC Berkeley) told me my pro-life views probably wouldn’t be accepted here.

    I countered that there are *liberal* pro-life groups, like Feminists For Life.

    Chris reacted with disbelief, mimicking Richard Nixon leaving the White House in disgrace in 1974, his hands outstretched, giving the “V-for-Victory” sign… as if by referring to pro-life liberals I was describing some nonexistent “silent majority.”

    In early 1992, I contacted Feminists For Life, and told them I’m into animal rights and pro-life feminism. Feminists For Life gave me contact information for SF Bay Area residents Rose Evans and Ruth Enero.

    I was told Rose Evans, editor and publisher of Harmony: Voices for a Just Future, a “consistent-ethic” periodical on the religious left, is supportive of animal issues.

    Rose sent me back issues of Harmony, and some pro-life liberal bumper stickers. When I asked her about the Seamless Garment Network, referred to throughout Harmony, she explained:

    The Seamless Garment Network (SGN) is a coalition of peace and justice organizations on the religious left. The SGN takes a stand against war, abortion, poverty, racism, the arms race, the death penalty and euthanasia. Animal rights, like ecology, nuclear power, gun control, or the drug war, is a topic of serious discussion among SGN members. His Holiness the Dalai Lama has signed the SGN Mission Statement.

    “We are committed to the protection of life, which is threatened in today’s world by war, abortion, poverty, racism, the arms race, the death penalty and euthanasia.

    “We believe these issues are linked under a consistent ethic of life. We challenge those working on all or some of these issues to maintain a cooperative spirit of peace, reconciliation, and respect in protecting the unprotected.”

    When I attended a pro-life meeting in Pleasanton, CA, I was surrounded by conservatives. They reacted with mild skepticism when I said I see many parallels between animal rights and prenatal rights (thoroughly documented in my 2006 book, The Liberal Case Against Abortion).

    They could tell right away that I’m a pro-life liberal. They were all praising Rush Limbaugh, who I’d never heard of before, and saying, amused, “Oh, you’d like him…”

    One woman said she was home-schooling her kids, distrustful of the public schools, and said she was pleased by Rush Limbaugh’s referring to feminists as “feminazis.”

    When I told her it’s hard to trust Bush Sr. on abortion as being genuinely pro-life as he ran for president in 1980 as a pro-choice Republican, saying he disagreed with Ronald Reagan about Roe v. Wade, etc., she replied, “I’m voting for Pat Buchanan.”

    “I couldn’t do that,” I responded, and said instead, “Jerry Brown. If he were pro-life, he’d be perfect.”

    One gentleman was a high school biology teacher and clearly a conservative. When I asked him how he deals with teaching his students evolution, he said he teaches evolution, but points out the flaws in evolutionary theory as well.

    But he said with regret that America has been on a moral decline since prayers were removed from the public schools.

    I was thinking to myself, “My God, there are actually people who hold these views!”

    As I was leaving the pro-life meeting, the woman who said she was home-schooling her kids and a friend of hers saw me near my car, adorned with pro-life liberal bumper stickers (many thanks to Rose!), and said, “Oh, we wondered whose car that was. Liberal and pro-life bumper stickers.”

    I answered, “Haven’t you heard of the Seamless Garment Network?” (even though I hadn’t heard about it myself until earlier in the year!)

    She responded, “Yes, we’ve heard of it. It was started by some leftist Cardinal. We refer to it as the ‘straightjacket network.'”

    “Seamy!” said Ruth Enero, in a phone conversation years later, saying that’s how one of her relatives referred to the SGN.

    In 1993, when I was working at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as a contract employee (fortunately, none of my work was defense-related!), my friend Terry Burt, a Vietnam veteran and a pro-choice Democrat, liked to listen to Rush Limbaugh, even though he disagreed with Rush Limbaugh on abortion… Terry Burt, apparently unaware of Atheists For Life, Democrats For Life, Feminists For Life, the Pro-Life Alliance of Gays and Lesbians (PLAGAL), the SGN, etc., considered opposition to abortion to be an extremely conservative position… and couldn’t understand my identifying myself as a pro-life Democrat!

    “I have always thought it peculiar how the liberal and conservative philosophies have lined up on the abortion issue,” observed pro-life feminist Rosemary Bottcher, in the Tallahassee Democrat. “It seemed to me that liberals traditionally have cared about others and about human rights while conservatives have cared about themselves and property rights. Therefore, one would expect liberals to be defending the unborn and conservatives to be encouraging their destruction.”

    The only frustration I have with the left, therefore, is its failure to see abortion as a secular human rights issue… especially those who claim to espouse nonviolence, e.g., are antinuclear or antiwar, or support nonviolent civil disobedience.

    During the spring of 1989, for example, a huge “pro-choice” rally in Washington, DC was endorsed by the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Studies in Atlanta. The abortion issue was framed solely in terms of “choice,” rather than in terms of the possible rights of the unborn, possibly violating someone else’s rights, endorsed by the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Studies, etc. I found this incredibly Orwellian! It’s like many on the left have trouble seeing abortion as a secular human rights issue; seeing it as an act of violence against the unborn.

    Similarly, in the mid-‘90s, a group of recording artists released an album benefiting the abortion rights movement: Born to Choose. The title also struck me as Orwellian: We are “born to choose” whether or not someone else may be born “to choose.”

    And in 2007, I saw a car with two bumper stickers: one of them read “Create Peace” and the other read “Pro-Choice.” The owner of the car apparently saw no contradiction between the two slogans.

    If pro-lifers really want to end abortion, opposition is going to have to come from across the political spectrum, and not just from the far right. Instead of playing to the same old “Ronald Reagan / Oliver North” crowd, pro-life Republicans are going to have to cross party lines, reach across the aisle, and convince Democrats, feminists, liberals, etc. to see killing of the unborn on par with domestic violence, hate crimes against LGBTs, etc.

    The animal rights movement, like the Democratic Party, is dominated by secular progressives. The animal rights movement, like the Democratic Party, is divided on the issue of abortion, and so far, pro-lifers haven’t even managed to convince the majority of animal activists that killing the unborn is on par with killing animals, what to speak of distinguishing abortion from arguably victimless crimes like marijuana, etc.

    Some pro-life liberals who immediately come to my mind are former Village Voice columnist Nat Hentoff — a self-described “liberal Jewish atheist”; writer and former Washington Post columnist Colman McCarthy; the late governor Robert Casey of Pennsylvania; and Wangari Maathai, the Kenyan 2004 Nobel Peace Prize winner, human rights and women’s rights activist, and environmentalist. Of course, I can’t forget Carol Crossed of Democrats For Life, either, who was kind enough to write the foreword to my own 2006 book on the subject.

    A popular liberal bumper sticker reads: “I’ll believe a corporation is a person when the state of Texas executes one!”

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

        I still believe Vasu is a Democrat bot, programmed to post that drivel here just to disrupt and irritate. It’s occasional ‘answers’ to a response only started recently, when some of us brought it up. Some suggest ignoring him, or it, and it will stop posting, however, it just keeps posting even longer and more insane crap when ignored.

      • Jack Handy says:

        Rite 0n, Lance. I have posted ‘similar’ words
        REPEATEDLY. Look up his bio & from Where.
        I did.

  5. I’m so glad Rush isn’t going over to Fox News. They have become more liberal since the son’s and their wives have taken over from the Dad. I stopped watching them after they fired O’Reilly and Eric Bolling. Never watched Shepard Smith, but did see him on the internet, and never liked his views, Next to go should be Wallace, Juan Williams and Brazile. Always wondered why they hired her.

  6. VGF says:

    Rush L. You are too wise to ever Take One Step Back… and that would be a Step Backwards ( So Off the Cliff ) to Have Anything to do with FOX News. ) YOU have Created a Following ALL your OWN>>>SO>>Just KEEP IT that WAY. Somehow, FOX has a KNACK of Ruining Anyone that Is affiliated with FOX for Long !! YOU >>And ONLY A COUPLE OF OTHERS… Have BEEN THIS WISE ! FOX has ‘changed its` stripes too many times..to hold true to any Course… it will always Act the BAD leopard”.

  7. Jonathan Conover says:

    Rush should be a javelin catcher in the Olympics.

  8. Shirley says:

    I heard that they will be rotating different people . Cannot remember what they are calling it but the show will have a different name.

  9. Jonathan Conover says:

    Rush should be a diver for Roto Rooter.

  10. Kenneth Miller says:

    Rush is correct, he is doing a fine job right where he is, Television has a tendency to gobble up and spit out good people in a bad light.

  11. Lois J. Moyer says:

    While I think that Rush would be a great improvement for FOX, I like him where he is—basically his own boss! On the FOX network, he would be restrained in some of what he could say and do. I would rather see him become more of a guest on some of the shows.

  12. DEM777 says:

    Rush Limbaugh, should join Fox News only because there is more Liberal on Fox News now.

    We need a lot of people fired and new people in that is Conservative Republican.

    We get to much Left-wing sides and not enough of Right-wing.

    When my subscription with Dish Network is over I am cancelling Fox News.

    FOX NEWS IS NOT THE SAME.

    FOX NEWS IS MORE LIBERAL NOW.
