RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): Now, The Washington Post has a story out today that the Trump administration, that Trump and his family are asking experts who among them can be pardoned and can the president, himself, be pardoned.
I think [special counsel Robert] Mueller's the story, I don't think Trump is. Mueller's the story. This out-of-control investigation that is obviously a political opposition research program underway, with all the liberal Democrats supporting Obama and Hillary that Mueller has hired. And the no parameters and the wide open playing field, they go anywhere back in time to any point they want. There's no limits on them. And one way Trump can shut it down, there's speculation, why don't you just fire Mueller?
One way to end this is just pardon everybody that Mueller is investigating, right now. Just pardon them. It would shut down the investigation. If there's not going to be any punishment, if there are not going to be -- whatever charges are brought eventually, if allegations are made. They've been pre-pardoned here. It'd be one way of shutting it down.
If You Listened to Rush's Full Education Lesson On The Limits Of Special Counsels and Constitutional Law, What Do You Think Of It? Clue: A Counterintelligence Investigation Is Based On A Potential Crime. Apparently Trump Conveniently Blurs the Difference Between an Investigation Looking for Crimes and A Criminal Investigation. For Starters. Now do you understand where all the ridiculous "explanations" the right wing uses comes from? I especially love the Ken Starr comment! Pure, unadulterated, blowhard, fact-less Rush!
NOTE: Rush, along with Fox, are the leaders of the pack when it comes to filling their viewers and listeners with utter claptrap. Rush in particular, articulates for the Trump set a rational sounding narrative so that his fans don't have to think about such issues as Russiagate or Jared Kushner's lying a bunch of times about his meetings and association with all things Russian. In fact, this is Rush's primary function: providing un-studied, un-thoughtful, fact-less, explanations for his listeners. The closest he comes to ever referencing a factual bit of info, is when he declares the "I heard it from a high government official" or "I have the papers under my desk. Somewhere." But it's all just feel-good propaganda. Take Rush's daily rant that "liberals are destroying America." In the hundreds of times I've heard him voice this conservative popular theme, never once has he provided any backup to his claim. Sure, he will reference hot-button topics like abortion and voter fraud as "proof" but never 'splains how abortions and voter fraud results in liberals destroying America. And, just like Trump supporters who are undoubtedly Rush listeners as well, Russiagate is simply a made-up, liberal, Deep State conspiracy to undermine Trump despite all the evidence to the contrary that we have now seen. To his and Trump's fans "liberals are destroying America" (Democrats, too) is sufficient "evidence" since if Republicans and conservatives are the ones who champion freedom, liberty, democracy, family and all the other tropes they allegedly adhere too, all of their and the country's problems simply can't be caused by them. The problems they are facing, then, must be caused by someone else: illegals, multi-culturalism, Blacks, feminists, anarchists, in sum, liberals. This kind of superficial analysis and circular logic creates an impenetrable sphere that not even Kryptonite can penetrate. Never mind that if anyone who isn't blindly glued to the tomes of "cutting taxes creates jobs" and "government is the problem" and "illegals are taking our jobs" ventured to examine the facts, their entire insular world would come crashing down upon their heads. This impenetrable wall of faulty narratives is perfectly illustrated by the Trump's supporters who, even after six months of inept governance, damaged international relations, crudeness, domestic carnage and lie after lie from Trump and the Trump Team, they are still with him. And So It Goes. The Sun Will Rise Tomorrow Whether Or Not You And I Are Here To See It. PS: Remember when Rush called Sandra Fluke a "slut" when she spoke out against health insurance not covering birth control pills? Just ran across this which basically turns all that conservative clap trap about birth control and abortions on its head.
THEY BOTH LOVE HARD DRIVING AUTHORITY AND “MAKING DEALS”
We all know that Donald Trump was only joking when he
implied that the Second Amendment Folks could take out Hillary if they wanted
to.And when he encouraged Russia to hack
Hillary Clinton’s emails so that her wrinkled Granny titties nefarious Clinton Foundation activities would be exposed for the world to see, we knew he wasn't serious. But Hillary is taking it from all sides of late, including from Wikileaks transparency uber patriot, Julian Assange, who seems to have a massive hard on "thing" for Hillary. Of course, we all know that Julian's long-standing beef with Hillary Clinton stems from the time she refused to have anal sex
with him she threatened to have him arrested, right?
While I’m totally 100% spit on my mother’s grave sure
not yet convinced that Putin is directly behind the e-mail hack and dump of the
Democratic National Committee (whose offices, by the way are just a few blocks
away from my ho…
Is A MUST Read: Take A Gander At This Amazing, But Little Known, 9-11 Story This incredible story is from a flight attendant on Delta Flight
15: On the morning of Tuesday, September 11, we were about 5 hours
out of Frankfurt, flying over the North Atlantic. All of a sudden the curtains parted and I was told to go to the
cockpit, immediately, to see the captain. As soon as I got there I noticed that the crew had that “All
Business” look on their faces. The captain handed me a printed message. It was
from Delta’s main office in Atlanta and simply read, “All airways over the
Continental United States are closed to commercial air traffic. Land ASAP at
the nearest airport. Advise your destination.” No one said a word about what this could mean. We knew it was a
serious situation and we needed to find terra firma quickly. The captain
determined that the nearest airport was 400 miles behind us in Gander,
Newfoundland. He requested approval for a route change from the Canadian
A NARRATIVE THAT ENABLES VIOLENCE AGANST US AS IT DID
PART ONE If you haven’t kept up with the right wing’s
latest attacks on liberals for protesting and resisting Trump then you probably
will disagree with me that I believe that we are heading for new wave of
violence against liberal demonstrators, protesters and resistors as well as against free speech and
the continued diminishment of basic civil and human rights right here in
America. We’ve seen such actions before
during the Civil Rights and Anti-Vietnam War days of the 1960’s.With our backs against the well, as they
surely are today, and the national atmosphere even more repressive with the
Trump Administration, you can depend on it. Why do I say what’s happening to us today
resembles what happened to African Americans during Jim Crow?In no way do I intend to portray the “plight”
of liberals and progressives today as analogous to the post Civil War situation
of African Americans following the passage of the 13th
