Hello Mark. Can I have your comments about the current witch hunt of Bettina Arndt in Australia. She has a very long history as a men's rights advocate. She has been recently maligned by the PC mob for having an opinion concerning the Queensland Police handling of a family related murder by Rowan Baxter. The NSW Attorney General by name of Mark Speakman has inflamed the public humiliation of Bettina Arndt by recommending that she be stripped of the Order of Australia simply because her opinion didn't align with the opinion of her detractors. The usual PC BS to punish alternative points of view. Any thoughts.

Mark, instead of having the tax payers foot the bill for college and university tuition why don't we explore why that tuition is so high and increasing? Wouldn't it make more sense to find the root of the problem? What are these institutions doing with all of that endowment and grant money? Maybe the administrators and professors are being paid too much. Am I making this too simplistic?

How would you assess the state of Britain today? I mean mainly culturally.
In the mid-seventies, I spent a year and a half in London as a research student, living in an international student house. We talked about the British thing all the time. It was consensus that whatever you wanted to say about the Brits, they knew who they were. This at a time when the British economy was in shambles, the unions were ascendant, with IMF bigwigs calling the shots, and IRA bombs going off every night in time to make the 9:00 news. It wasn't a happy time but there was still seemed to be pride and conviction, as well as a deep sense of history and place.
A terrible decline has happened in 45 years, even with a Thatcher interlude and now Brexit. I follow Britain as much as I can, but can't seem to connect with the place. What really happened?

I think that everyone invested in the primary is forgetting about Tulsi. Just because she is from a small state does not make her less qualified to be president. She does the same job other senators do and I think is better at trying to be non partisan to solve issues. She is certainly head a shoulders above Bernie or Biden and i would consider voting for her should she win the primary. Do you think she could have a chance? I was also wondering what what your opinion was on the primary election process in America. How do you think it could be improved?

Sure, she kept on about her military service, and had an embarrassing predilection for Bashar al-Assad, but that's not significantly worse than the average for the 2020 lot, isn't it?

Hi Mark, you had a very interesting caller yesterday on Rush who expressed how puzzling it is that Crazy Uncle Bernie spews and boils over with rage about everything except being cheated yet again out of the nomination and, as you pointed out, how completely docile he was over Hilary's e-mails, signalling his electoral impotence (let's not discuss any other kind). Do you think that running, but not winning is Bernie's business model? If he runs and runs and runs, the money still comes in, but if he shows no killer instinct, he doesn't have to actually have to get a real job. Maybe he's never actually been in it to win it.

Mark, in the election of 1944, the press worked to shield the failing physical health of President Roosevelt from the public only see him die just a few months after re-election.

The corruption of the Biden family is quite remarkable, as is the lack of mainstream media interest in covering it. Would you agree that one of the most painful things to watch now is how Joe Biden's closest family, his wife and surviving children, are allowing him to continue along with this farce, to be ridiculed nationally and internationally and deteriorating cognitively and physically right in front of our eyes? What a terrible family.

If Joe Biden becomes the nominee and we avoid an independent tovarishch Marshall Sanders run, do you think Joe could feasibly and physically survive the race given how catastrophically his mind is decaying? Could the Democrats be forced to yank him, commit his body to the ground, and throw in Michelle so she can finally feel proud of her country for the second time in her life?

Mark, I think the DNC was actually pretty smart in outplaying Bernie and well within their rights. When Joe gets the nomination, who do you believe he will pick for VP? Also, I find myself feeling more uneasy everyday with mocking him as he's looking like he might actually be diseased. Do you think he looks sort of frightened when he notices his own missteps?

There were obviously major machinations perpetrated to get Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg to drop out of the race prior to Super Tuesday. What exactly do you expect happened behind the scenes for this to take place? Not only were they persuaded to suspend their campaigns, they also jumped in feet first to endorse Joe Biden. They must have been offered something very tasty.

Hi Mark. You said while guest hosting for Rush that Joe Biden's running mate would be the important choice because whoever it was would be running things in a short time. This, of course, presupposes that Joe is actually electable. So we have a guy who is, for all practical purposes, non compos mentis who could conceivably become president. Even if he was fully capable all that he is and believes would be deleterious to the nation and the world. Or how about our Canadian neighbors? Nobody in Canada knew the character and capabilities of Justin Trudeau? I'm always very concerned about the actual mentality of the electorate. Elections rarely seem to have entirely rational outcomes to me. What is your view of the mental acuity of the electorate of Western nations? Are we becoming too stupid to survive in the long run?

How will a presidential debate go between Trump and Biden? I can't imagine Biden repeating the scripted PC robotalk performance of Clinton in the 2016 presidential debates. Besides being a clueless empty vessel, how is Biden otherwise qualified to be the dream candidate to go against Trump? Don't actors still need to remember their lines? Will the moderators permit his wife or sister to stand beside him and translate, or maybe he'll get one of those machines like Stephen Hawkings had? I'm missing something.

Loved the three hours today, Mark, twice, when I know the parts when you get fired up! Yes, so smart and insightful about lackluster Bernie when it's his time, no fire; blah blah Bloomberg taking that shellacking, so unnecessary. Where's the fight?! Also, informative. I forgot all that about Trent Lott until you brought it up, and earnest calls came in, too. Jason from Oz from Southern Maryland was right on. The American people are doing their part, getting some good people in but once in office not all the elected people get it done. Schumer is an abomination for any elected official doing what he did. Frustrating to no end. Out with him, but no, he'll be there until he's 98.
Democratic elites run the election show. Why vote at all if you're going Democrat? They know who they need to select. It's a ticking time bomb this sham. How much can people take of these fake primaries? The country does deserve better than this. Rush is so heroic, and can't wait to see the upcoming newsletter and get the new Apple app! What a kick that will be! Thanks for all the hard effort and professionalism both of you men provide us!

On Rush's show yesterday, you took a call from a listener who wanted to know just exactly who had cleared the deck of other Democrats to leave Joe Biden as the only alternative to Red Bernie. Within days, if not hours, Steyer, Bloomberg, Klobuchar, and Buttigieg had all been given the hook, followed shortly afterwards by Warren's retirement to her tepee. Forget talk of "the establishment", who had the juice to make so many more or less credible candidates drop like flies? Your answer was Barack Obama, and I'm certain you're right. For not only is he the only one in the party with the standing to make that happen, the tactic of taking out the opposition and running unopposed fits his M.O. He used it in invalidating the petition signatures of his chief rival for a seat in the Illinois State Senate; and he (or someone on his side) used it to get the divorce files opened for both his Democrat and Republican competitors in his 2004 run for the US Senate. President Obama has been notably reluctant to endorse any candidate so far, but are we to read the headlong rush of events the past few days as a tacit nod or wink in Biden's favor?

The surest way to lose a case in court is to threaten the judge who is making the decision. Schumer would have been arrested and detained for criminal contempt of court if he had uttered his threat inside the court during oral arguments. If you had hired him to represent you in the case, you would fire him on the spot and sue him for legal malpractice when you lose. Schumer is the latest manifestation of the Democrats' disregard for the limits on the power of government officials placed by the Constitution. The Democrats are up to their old tricks from 150 years ago, who beat another member of Congress nearly to death on the floor of the House. Like the slave holding Democrats who rebelled against the first Republican president, they have decided that if they cannot get their way through constitutional means, they are ready to tear the nation down around them. They have failed at tearing down Trump through wiretapping, a corrupt independent counsel investigation, and an illegal impeachment that was obstruction of justice to block an investigation of Biden's corruption. So what is their next evil but stupid move after they lose to Trump again this November?
