Rush Limbaugh, The Smoking Gun


New Fodder For Anti-Rush Crowd, Privacy Again Violated

In what is sure to provide fresh fodder for Rush Limbaugh- hating conspiracy theorists, The Smoking Gun has obtained new documentation from the now- infamous Palm Beach airport detention after his return from the Dominican Republic.

Though it's already been indicated that Limbaugh will most likely not face charges for carrying Viagra without a prescription in his name, the documents contain interesting tidbits that are sure to fuel the ongoing "controversy" over Rush's very existence on Planet Earth.

Not interested in making it boring, The Smoking Gun is calling the trip "Rush Limbaugh's Dominican Stag Party". Included in the just- released documentation is the fact that Rush's private jet is owned by his syndicator, Premiere Radio Networks, a division of Clear Channel Radio.

Since Limbaugh's brief airport detention by authorities, lefty opponents have been busy pushing the idea that Rush and his friends were engaging in sexual tourism, but have yet to offer any evidence. This report is likely to breathe life into their unfounded allegations, even if there still aren't any details to that effect here. When did that ever stop them in the past?

Far more explosive for liberal Hollywood circles, it has now been revealed that Rush was travelling with two producers of the FOX hit drama "24", in addition to agent Jeffrey Benson. Will careers be ruined by their association with a known conservative?

In notoriously intolerant Hollywood, that's quite possible.

Included is handwritten testimony from Limbaugh at the time of his detention, as well as other details about the trip and the plane's passengers. Further undermining his privacy, except for one phone number, Rush's address and personal information were not obscured before being released to the public.

From the TSG report:

Rush Limbaugh was traveling with four other men--including the producers of the hit show "24"--when he was detained over a mislabeled bottle of Viagra found in his luggage during a Customs search.

A Department of Homeland security passenger manifest shows that Limbaugh and his four buddies flew from the Dominican Republic on a Gulfstream IV jet owned by Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates his radio program. Limbaugh returned to Palm Beach, Florida on June 26 with Joel Surnow, "24"'s co-creator and executive producer and Howard Gordon, another of the Fox hit's executive producers (Hollywood agent Jeffrey Benson was also part of the Limbaugh quintet). With all those guys in tow, it is unclear what Limbaugh needed with those 29 100mg Viagra pills.

The passenger manifest was among several documents released today by the Palm Beach County State's Attorney in response to a TSG open records request. Included in the material released were a copy of the handwritten statement Limbaugh provided investigators after he was detained upon the discovery of the impotency drug. An affidavit sworn three days later by Limbaugh was also released.

In that document, Limbaugh explains that the Viagra "was intended for my exclusive use" and that the drug had been prescribed in the name of his drug treatment doctor, Steven Strumwasser, "to further maintain and protect my privacy."

Has Rush again been put in danger? Hanging out there for every nut and kook in the world to see are his previously- undisclosed contact details.

As Bill O'Reilly recently warned Rush, it might be best to move out of loony West Palm Beach.

NOW would be a good time.

What's more than clear is that until they've succeeded in destroying the talk titan, the leftist media and Rush's other opponents aren't going to let up on these relentless personal attacks.

How do conservatives plan to respond?

  • Is it possible that Rush was in the Dominican Republic to arrange for the secret escape of Ken Lay while Bu$hitler operatives killed his body double in Aspen?

    ("Ken Lay Is Alive" being the latest conspiracy theory from the 'Reality-Based Community.')

  • "liberals are not opposed to monitoring TERRORISTS. its the normal, average, law-abiding, patriotic US citizens that are monitored that makes us angry."

    And how, pray tell, do you determine the difference between a normal, average, law abiding citizen, and a terrorist?

    My answer - you monitor what they do.

    What's your answer? To look for the little terrorist logo on their shirts?

  • you get a court warrent, you present evidence that the suspect is a possible TERRORIST

    How do you get that evidence?

    What, exactly, will make them suspects?

  • RWW said: "Loose Change- the other poster brings up. Funny, has anyone dis-credited the video? No that release by the government regarding the pentagon, does not show a plane hitting the pentagon." This article from Salon should do quite nicely in that regard. Or this article for a nice overall debunking of the "9/11 Conspiracy." For those of you who need to see it on video, try this nine-minute video by Penn and Teller on the subject, from their show "BULLSHIT!"

    As to conspiracies when The Ultimate Answer was President, the reason that they took to life was because at every stage the Clinton Administration would obstruct any and all investigation - remember the famous "Secret Service Protection Privilege" question that went all the way to the fargin' Supreme Court. More time, more expense, more heat, more smoke, more jabbering. Had The Ultimate Answer and Lady MacBeth merely come clean from the beginning, the whole thing could have been wrapped up inside of two years. And for those of you who think that Linda MacDougall is some kind of saint, I wonder if you will accord Judy Miller that same level of beatification for her stint in the pokey for not spilling all to Peter Fitzgerald and thus delaying Fitzmas.

    Now - as to the "surveillance" question: I would suggest that Lokki's assailants take a good look at the famous "wall" that Jamie Gorelick helped to set up between FBI and CIA information sharing because of just that concern, and whether or not it might have led to the events of 9/11.

    Y'all were screaming about how the dots were there but not connected, but now you seem to be stating that we shouldn't even be collecting the dots in the first place. I suppose that is so that when something (G-d forbid) ugly happens, you will be able to scream that "the dots were there, they just didn't connect them!" Or better yet, "they were derelict, they weren't watching close enough!"

    This vigilance that you so decry has helped to keep your sorry asses safer in this nation for coming up on five years now, despite every effort of the NYT and the LA Times and the WSJ to expose what is being done.

    Pick one and go with it guys: Prudent vigilance and safety, or comradely openness and danger. In this day and age, you can't have both.

  • The Ken theory is way out of league. That Rush was engaging in sex tourism, well... the DR has been known to host famous men`s clubs (,for instance )
    because the island is a real paradise and well away from the mass media in America. had he not traveled with the blue pill bottle, no one would`ve guessed what he was doing. But le`ts be frank: He was just enjoying a Caribbean vacation like anyone else would`ve; what`s the big deal?
