Rush Limbaugh

You could reduce it to say it was capitalism versus socialism, which it was. But that would be to undersell — underemphasize what really has happened. A people who had undying faith in God survived circumstances that they never knew they were going to face and ultimately prospered — and, at the end of it all, were still able to practice their religion as they chose who was the original reason for their trip in the first place. And for all of that they were eternally thankful. That is the story of Thanksgiving.

The True Story of Thanksgiving

“On August 1, 1620, the Mayflower set sail. “It carried a total of 102 passengers,” not all of them Pilgrims, “including forty Pilgrims led by William Bradford. On the journey, Bradford set up an agreement, a contract,” for all the Pilgrims to agree to and sign, “that established just and equal laws for all [forty Pilgrims] of the new community…” It didn’t matter what their religious beliefs were. None of that mattered. They just set up a contractual agreement that dictated behavior and a number of other things. Now, where did the ideas…? This is the Mayflower Compact, by the way, is what it was called.

“Where did the revolutionary ideas expressed in the Mayflower Compact come from? From the Bible. The Pilgrims were a people completely steeped in the lessons of the” Bible, both “Old and New Testaments.” It was the reason they lived: To read it, to study it, to practice it. “They looked to the ancient Israelites for their example. And, because of the biblical precedents set forth in Scripture,” this is all according to Bradford’s journal, “they never doubted that their experiment would work.” They were supremely confident that their objective would occur.

But everybody knows “this was no pleasure cruise.” It was long. It was arduous. There were the usual bad relationships and problems on board this tiny ship with 102 people. But they made it. They made it in ways that people would not travel today. They had no other choice. Think of the primitive forms of navigation, lack of knowledge of any upcoming weather or condition of the seas. Yet they did it, “[a]nd when the Pilgrims landed in New England in November, they found, according to Bradford’s detailed journal,” nothing “a cold, barren, desolate,” unsettled, “wilderness.

Thanksgiving Stories the Teacher is not Teaching our Children

History Facts: Real Story of Thanksgiving

key “Here’s the part that’s been omitted…”  I’ll come back with the part that is omitted from modern day textbooks for young children in the schools. ~Rush Limbaugh

plymouth-colony-AA group of separatists first fled to Holland and established a community. “After eleven years, about forty of them agreed to make a perilous journey to the New World, where they would certainly face hardships, but could live and worship God according to the dictates of their own consciences. On August 1, 1620, the Mayflower set sail. It carried a total of 102 passengers, including forty Pilgrims led by William Bradford. On the journey, Bradford set up an agreement, a contract, that established just and equal laws for all members of the new community, irrespective of their religious beliefs. Where did the revolutionary ideas expressed in the Mayflower Compact come from?

bible1“From the Bible. The Pilgrims were a people completely steeped in the lessons of the Old and New Testaments. They looked to the ancient Israelites for their example. And, because of the biblical precedents set forth in Scripture, they never doubted that their experiment would work. But this was no pleasure cruise, friends. The journey to the New World was a long and arduous one. And when the Pilgrims landed in New England in November, they found, according to Bradford’s detailed journal, a cold, barren, desolate wilderness. There were no friends to greet them, he wrote.

“There were no houses to shelter them. There were no inns where they could refresh themselves. And the sacrifice they had made for freedom was just beginning. During the first winter, half the Pilgrims — including Bradford’s own wife — died of either starvation, sickness or exposure.” For a long time, many of them continued to live on the Mayflower. There was nowhere else to live. “When spring finally came, Indians taught the settlers how to plant corn, fish for cod and skin beavers for coats. Life improved for the Pilgrims, but they did not yet prosper!

“This is important to understand because this is where modern American history lessons often end. Thanksgiving is actually explained in some textbooks as a holiday for which the Pilgrims gave thanks to the Indians for saving their lives,” and teaching them to grow food and eat and all that, “rather than as a devout expression of gratitude grounded in the tradition of both the Old and New Testaments.” The Bible. Remember, these were religious people. They set out on a journey to a place that they had no idea of, and they just found barren wilderness.

thanksgiving1stThe very idea that they survived — even before they began to prosper, the very idea that they just survived — was what gave them pause to thank God. That was the original Thanksgiving, and that’s not taught. The original Thanksgiving is taught as, “If it weren’t for the Indians, Pilgrims would have died. The Indians saved their bacon! The Indians saved them.” It’s an understandable effort here, but that’s not what happened, is the point. “Here’s the part that’s been omitted…”  I’ll come back with the part that is omitted from modern day textbooks for young children in the schools.

RUSH: We are back with the original, the true story of Thanksgiving, as written by me See, I Told You So, Chapter 6: “Dead White Guys, What the History Books Never Told You, The True Story of Thanksgiving — “Here is the part that has been omitted: The original contract the Pilgrims had entered into with their merchant-sponsors…” in London called for everything they produced to go into a common store, and each member of the community,” all 40 of them, “was entitled to one common share. All of the land they cleared and the houses they built belong to the community as well. “

Mayflower-compact-hero2-AIt was a commune. It was socialism! Because they wanted to be fair. “They were going to distribute it equally. All of the land they cleared and the houses they built belonged to the community as well. Nobody owned anything. They just had a share in it. It was a commune, folks. “It was the forerunner to the communes we saw in the ’60s and ’70s out in California — and it was complete with organic vegetables, by the way,” in case you’d like to know. “Bradford, who had become the new governor of the colony, recognized that this form of collectivism was as costly and destructive to the Pilgrims as that first harsh winter, which had taken so many lives,” and half the people weren’t carrying their weight, didn’t have to.

“He decided to take bold action. Bradford assigned a plot of land to each family to work and manage,” and they got to keep the bulk of what they produced, “thus turning loose the power of the marketplace. That’s right. Long before Karl Marx was even born, the Pilgrims had discovered and experimented with what could only be described as socialism. And what happened? It didn’t work! … “What Bradford and his community found was that the most creative and industrious people had no incentive to work any harder than anyone else, unless they could utilize the power of personal motivation!

“But while most of the rest of the world has been experimenting with socialism for well over a hundred years … the Pilgrims decided early on to scrap it permanently. What Bradford wrote about this social experiment should be in every schoolchild’s history lesson. If it were, we might prevent much needless suffering in the future. ‘The experience that we had in this common course and condition, tried sundry years,'” meaning it was tough for a long time, “‘that by taking away property, and bringing community into a common wealth, would make them happy and flourishing — as if they were wiser than God,’ Bradford wrote.”

Meaning: We thought we knew, but we were wrong.

“‘For this community [so far as it was] was found to breed much confusion and discontent, and retard much employment that would have been to their benefit and comfort. For young men that were most able and fit for labor and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men’s wives and children without any recompense…that was thought injustice.'” So what happened was, the hard workers began to see a bunch of slackers. Even in the first Pilgrims, they had a bunch of slackers, and they said, “What the hell are we doing? If everybody’s getting an equal share here and half of these people aren’t working, to hell with this!” and they threw it out.

William Bradford wrote about it in the journal. “The Pilgrims found that people could not be expected to do their best work without incentive. So what did Bradford’s community try next? They unharnessed the power of good old free enterprise by invoking the undergirding capitalistic principle of private property. Every family was assigned its own plot of land to work,” and they were permitted to use it as they saw fit, “and permitted to market its own crops and products. And what was the result? ‘This had very good success,’ wrote Bradford, ‘for it made all hands industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been.'”

bradfordwilliamThey had surpluses. You know what they did with the surpluses? They shared them with the Indians. Capitalism, as opposed to socialism, produced abundance, the likes of which they had never experienced. They remembered the help they got when they first landed from the Indians. They shared their abundance. That’s the first Thanksgiving: A thanks to God for their safety, a thanks to God for their discovery, and a thanks to the Indians by sharing the abundance that they themselves produced after first trying what could only be called today Obamaism or Clintonism or socialism.

That, my friends, is the real story of Thanksgiving.

It’s not taught. It is not explained anywhere. The original story of Thanksgiving stops where the Indians saw these newly arrived, struggling Europeans who did not know what to do, and showed them how to plant corn and all that. Meaning the first Thanksgiving is: “If it weren’t for Indians…” So that has led us to today where Obama says the Indians are the only ones that have any real right to be offended at immigration. I try to tell this story every year on the day before Thanksgiving on the EIB Network. I do. And as I say, we’ve written an entire book for children about this featuring time travel with Rush Revere and his talking horse, Liberty, that take children back to Holland.

They make the journey with the Pilgrims across the Atlantic Ocean.

They’re there and get to know Bradford and so forth.

It’s the way we decided to teach history, by actually taking these young readers to these events and making them part of them. Kathryn and I are abundantly thankful for all of you for making our lives and the lives of our families so rich and rewarding. The true story of Thanksgiving for us is how fortunate we all are to have people like you in our lives and compromising this audience. We hope you have a great Thanksgiving with your family. We hope that it’s everything that you want it to be, hope you’re able to get there if you intend to go. But regardless, if you’re able to make it or not, we hope that your Thanksgiving gives you time to pause and give thanks for the great fortune we all have to be Americans.

History Facts:

Immigration in America; Immigration Caravan vs. Disease Control

“America is a welcoming country,” President Trump said from the Roosevelt Room of the White House. “We will not allow our generosity to be abused by those who would break our laws, defy our rules, violate our borders, [and] break into our country illegally.”

The True History of Immigration in America

Rush Limbaugh

CALLER: Thank you so much for taking my call. I was a twelfth grade American history teacher for 25 years and I finally had to leave because the revisionist history was becoming more than I could handle. I started writing my own classes, courses, because I couldn’t handle how they had revised American history. But the reason I called was the topic of immigration. Immigration, if it’s in the book, probably gets about one paragraph.

What most people don’t understand is when these millions of people came over through Ellis Island, we didn’t just open our arms and say, “Come on in,” the way the Democrats want to do now. These people were given a thorough examination by the ship, especially looking at their eyes. They take a device and flick up the upper eyelid, and if you had a disease called trachoma, you were automatically let go. They made you walk up and down steps to make sure you were strong and were not winded.

Now, once the ship doctor performed his examination, you were put on the ship and you were sent to Ellis Island, where they gave you a second examination doing the trachoma exam once again, walking up and down the steps. And if you didn’t make it, you were sent back. About 2% of the people were sent back. And the reason why it was so low is because the ship doctor really did a thorough exam. If you were sent back, the ship had to pay for your passage back to Europe, so they wanted to make sure. We did not want anyone that could not work, was not healthy, and was not strong.

CALLER: But we did not want people who would be on welfare. We did not want those people. We wanted only strong, healthy people. That’s been totally left out of history books, and I can’t tell you how much it frustrates me to listen to these Democrats talk about how wonderful we were when we welcomed everybody. Not true. I have a 9-year-old grandson, and I just shudder to think about the kind of history he’s gonna be learning. I’m giving him, for Christmas, one of your books.

RUSH: Oh, wow. Very wise.

Howard Zinn anti-American book

CALLER: Because I think, “Where’s he gonna get it?” He’s not gonna learn it from his own history books. They’re all revised. They give a paragraph maybe to Benjamin Franklin and —

RUSH: Well, try a paragraph to Abraham Lincoln! John Silber at Boston University way back in the nineties did a survey of the most popular high school history textbook and found one paragraph in reference to Abraham Lincoln. One paragraph! There were pages devoted to Bill Clinton, for example, in an American history book. The name that you want to know is Howard Zinn.

Howard Zinn, as a textbook writer, is a quasi-socialist-Marxist, and he somehow has finagled. The vast majority of textbooks purchased for use in American public schools have been written by this guy. But you know, you reminded me of something.

I really… I’m glad that you got through to remind us about Ellis Island. Not only, by the way, were they checking people’s health. They were determining whether or not people actually wanted to be Americans. It was a restrictive process. Now, we were a much newer and younger country then, and we had an entirely different attitude about immigration and growth, and it was required that immigrants assimilate, and it was required that they be healthy.

More A.F. Branco Cartoons at The Daily Torch.

We were not gonna open the borders to illness. We were not gonna expose the American people to things through accident or design. But more importantly, the immigrants who were allowed in had to demonstrate that they wanted to be Americans. They had to demonstrate that they loved America. You had to want to be an American.

You had to learn about American history. You had to promise that you were going to do your best to learn the English language. It was restrictive because it was predicated and based on the fact that we were in charge of who was going to live here.

 

The True History of Immigration in America

INVASION USA

Yes, unvetted illegal caravans threaten public health

Michelle Malkin wallops ‘fake newsers’ for calling those citing disease issue racist

My parents, legal immigrants from the Philippines, were screened for a panoply of communicable and infectious diseases.

My husband’s great-great grandparents and their relatives from Ukraine underwent thorough medical and physical exams at Ellis Island immediately after disembarking from their arduous transatlantic journeys. A team of doctors checked for everything from eye disease and muscle weakness to heart conditions, ringworm and mental deficiencies. Those who failed were rejected and ejected. No appeals, no apologies, no amnesty.

I find it especially bizarre that some of the same outspoken, big-government advocates for vaccinating every American citizen, young or old, against every possible condition, from the flu to chickenpox to HPV, are the same types now howling over the commonsense idea that we should protect ourselves from foreign diseases.

The Immigration and Nationality Act mandates medical screening exams for legal immigrants and refugees from around the world. The tests are performed by authorized physicians in either the applicants’ countries of origin or in the United States. The process includes “a physical examination, mental health evaluation, syphilis serologic testing … and chest radiography followed by acid-fast bacillus smears and sputum cultures if the chest radiograph is consistent with tuberculosis (TB).”

Legal immigrants and refugees must provide mandatory proof of vaccination for measles, mumps, rubella, polio, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, hepatitis A and B, rotavirus, meningococcus, chicken pox, pneumonia and seasonal flu.

Moreover, the Centers for Disease Control, not Fox News or the Trump White House or any other evil conservatives, reports that “most experts agree that testing for TB, hepatitis B, and HIV should be performed for most new arrivals to the United States. Clinicians should also make a habit of ensuring that this screening has been done for every new non-U.S.-born patient they see, regardless of time since the person’s arrival.”

Actual public health experts across the Southwest have reported rises in drug-resistant TB and dengue fever. In June, Australian public health researchers reported that “scabies, long considered a disease of the past in the developed world, is making its way back.” The scientists pointed to mass global migration as a leading factor, noting scabies outbreaks among refugees to the European Union and along America’s southern border.

And in Germany, federal epidemiologists reported that since opening the floodgates to migrants in 2015, data show “increased incidences in Germany of adenoviral conjunctivitis, botulism, chicken pox, cholera, cryptosporidiosis, dengue fever, echinococcosis, enterohemorrhagic E. coli, giardiasis, haemophilus influenza, Hantavirus, hepatitis, hemorrhagic fever, HIV/AIDS, leprosy, louse-borne relapsing fever, malaria, measles, meningococcal disease, meningoencephalitis, mumps, paratyphoid, rubella, shigellosis, syphilis, toxoplasmosis, trichinellosis, tuberculosis, tularemia, typhus and whooping cough.”

It’s simply insane to argue we should turn a blind eye to the health status of law-breaking aliens. And it’s treachery, yes, treachery, for so-called journalists to use their platforms to blithely smear those who dare to question open-borders orthodoxy or report the highly inconvenient facts.

Kavanaugh Letter to Grassley: I Will Not Be Intimidated by Smear Campaign, Character Assassination

Kavanaugh Letter to Grassley:

I Will Not Be Intimidated by Smear Campaign, Character Assassination

Kavanaugh Fights Back!

Defies ‘grotesque and obvious character assassination’

‘Vile threats of violence against my family’

Kavanaugh’s Letter to the Committee: I Will Not Be Intimidated

Rush Limbaugh

Trump is standing by Kavanaugh. In this letter to Grassley and Feinstein, Kavanaugh says, “I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out.” It begins, “Dear Chairman Grassley and Ranking Member Feinstein: When I testified in front of the Senate three weeks ago, I explained my belief that fair process is foundational to justice and to our democracy.

“At that time, I sat before the Senate Judiciary Committee for more than 31 hours and answered questions under oath. I then answered more questions at a confidential session. The following week, I responded to more than 1,200 written questions, more than have been submitted to all previous Supreme Court nominees combined.” Twelve hundred! One-thousand-two-hundred questions! That’s “more than have been submitted to all previous Supreme Court nominees combined.

“Only after that exhaustive process was complete did I learn, through the news media, about a 36-year-old allegation from high school that had been asserted months earlier and withheld from me throughout the hearing process. First, it was an anonymous allegation that I categorically and unequivocally denied. Soon after the accuser was identified. I repeated my denial on the record and made clear that I wished to appear before the committee. I then repeated my denial to committee investigators — under criminal penalties for false statements.

“These are smears, pure and simple. And they debase our public discourse. But they are also a threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country. Such grotesque and obvious character assassination — if allowed to succeed — will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions from service.” That’s right, and that’s exactly what the left wants. Make no mistake. The left would be happy if all decent people punted and said, “I want nothing to do with government.” Nothing would make them happier.

Judge Kavanaugh is exactly right about that. He continues, “As I told the committee during my hearing, a federal judge must be independent, not swayed by public or political pressure. That is the kind of judge I will always be. I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out.

“The last-minute character assassination will not succeed. I have devoted my career to serving the public and the cause of justice, and particularly to promoting the equality and dignity of women. Women from every phase of my life have come forward to attest to my character. I am grateful to them. I owe it to them, and to my family, to defend my integrity and my name. I look forward to answering questions from the Senate on Thursday. Sincerely, Brett M. Kavanaugh.”

Where Does the “Right to Be Heard” End?

 

Freedom of Speech does not grant right to be heard

Sep 24, 2018

RUSH: People misconstrue the First Amendment’s right to free speech to also mean right to be heard.

We don’t even know who this accuser is, and Avenatti — at this moment — is demanding to be heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee. And he’s using the personal pronoun “we” demand to be heard.

RUSH: You know, one of my big bugaboos, ladies and gentlemen, is this business of “right to be heard.” People misconstrue the First Amendment’s right to free speech to also mean right to be heard, and we’re hearing it now in the case of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford that she has “a right to be heard.” This is all part of the left trying to stand our system of jurisprudence upside down and on its head.

Well, let me ask this: Once it becomes pretty obvious that a person’s making false claims of attempted rape, at what point do we draw a line and say, “We no longer have to grant this opportunity to be heard and share a story”?

911 anniversary 2018

President Trump at Flight 93 Memorial:

Thanks to A.F. Branco at Comically Incorrect  for his great cartoon

A piece of America’s heart is buried on these grounds, but in its place has grown a new resolve to live our lives with the same grace and courage as the heroes of Flight 93. This field is now a monument to American defiance. This memorial is now a message to the world: America will never, ever submit to tyranny.

Since September 11th, nearly 5.5 million young Americans have enlisted in the United States Armed Forces. Nearly 7,000 service members have died facing down the menace of radical Islamic terrorism.

Today we also think of the more than 200,000 service members now serving overseas, and we think of every citizen who protects our nation at home, including our state, local, and federal law enforcement. These are great Americans. These are great heroes. We honor and thank them all.

As commander-in-chief, I will always do everything in my power to prevent terrorists from striking American soil.

Where Are We 17 Years Later?

Benghazi Attack 9-11 2012

Rush Limbaugh:

I think this is a good thing to revisit, because I don’t think people remember this.

Well, let me tell you about that. You mentioned 9/11 Benghazi. I think this is a good thing to revisit, because I don’t think people remember this. On that day… Let me get my embassies straight. I think it was our embassy in Cairo or it might have been somewhere in Libya. Anyway, one of our embassies apologized, issued an apology in the afternoon on September 11th, whatever the year was. We’re talking about Benghazi, 2012. I remember hearing this and I said, “Apology for what? What are we apologizing for now?”

It turned out that that apology had been orchestrated from the State Department in Washington as an advance move to blame this video that Obama and Hillary would later rely on as the reason why the Benghazi attack happened. We apologized before anything happened! Somebody goofed and released the official apology before the terrorists had taken any action. So it looked like we were apologizing for our existence. We were apologizing for our policies, apologizing for this and that.

It didn’t make any sense whatsoever. Later in the day and night, Benghazi happened, and we were told that it was spontaneous and it was because of a video that had been circulating on YouTube and elsewhere in the Middle East. It was inciting Islamists to riot and the apology was cited and so forth. The whole thing was a scam because it was known that Benghazi was going to happen, because it was a terror attack that was planned. It was known somewhat in advance. Of course, you know the story of Benghazi.

We didn’t do anything to help the people fighting in the middle of it to get ’em out or any of that because we didn’t want to provoke and we didn’t want to launch airplanes and missiles from the nearest base in Italy, if I’m recalling this right. I may have some of the few details wrong here, but overall this was the prelude to what happened at Benghazi on 9/11/12, and that apology from our State Department… I think it was Cairo, but it might have been from our installation… I don’t think we even had one in Libya. Anyway, I’m long. I gotta take a break. But I’ll figure this out.

Yeah, it was the embassy in Cairo, the State Department embassy. Our embassy issued this apology. It was like three o’clock in the afternoon, and nothing had happened. I said, “Well, it’s not unusual for Obama to apologize for America, but what is this about?” And then fact-checkers protecting Obama later said there really wasn’t an apology; it was just a statement. It was an apology to set up the blaming of the video for what was to happen later at the Benghazi complex.

“Today, I can’t possibly pay the attendant legal costs and live near my aging father, raising my kids where I grew up.

Now I must to move back to Washington, New York City, Miami or elsewhere, just so I can make enough money to pay off these legal bills. And I know I have you to thank for that.”
‘Forget about all the death threats against my family. I want to know who cost us so much money, who crushed our kids, who forced us out of our home, all because you lost an election. I want to know because God Damn you to Hell.”

It’s plain to see that the Mueller farce, meant to undermine the Trump agenda and boost Democrats, is ruining lives. The anti-Trump swamp doesn’t care how many innocent lives they destroy, so long as they can get famous, make money, and hurt Trump.

Michael Caputo Attests to What I’ve Told You the Establishment Is Doing

 

Deep State Swamp exposed: Robert Mueller Praise is False Information

Rush Limbaugh

The never-ending praise and accolades for the fairness, the open-mindedness, the nonjudgmentalism, the integrity and the honor of Robert Mueller has been his hallmark that has been his reputation for as long as he’s been in Washington. As either the FBI director, assistant attorney general — he’s served a number of presidents in a number of positions — his reputation is impeccable. And if you ask me, none of it’s true, and none of it is warranted.

To me, this guy, Robert Mueller, personifies actually what is wrong with the Washington establishment, not what is right about it. No more integrity than this guy has. More honor than anybody else. I mean, he’s the personification of Dudley Do-Right. If Robert Mueller were this honorable person — the right choice to get to the bottom of this for the sake of the nation, for the sake of our culture, for the sake of doing the right thing — then he would have shut down this investigation long ago and lectured everybody about the improprieties and dangers involved in all of this.

He would have exposed the conspiracy and the corruption in the FBI that prolonged this, and he would have named names. He would have properly looked into real collusion between Fusion GPS, the Hillary Clinton campaign, the Democrat National Committee and the Russians and Christopher Steele. He would have exposed it! He would have been the one to tell us that the Steele dossier was fake, phony, and fraudulent. He would have been the one to tell us that the Steele dossier had been illegally used to get a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page and whoever else that the Obama team wanted to spy on.

He would have been the one to expose all of this, if he were the guy we’ve been told that he is. But he’s obviously not. He’s right in there with the rest of these partisan buffoons helping to perpetuate this crock, helping to perpetuate this injustice. And if this is the guy… If this is the guy we’re all told, “Trust it, Rush! Trust Mueller. He’s the guy to get to the bottom of this. He’ll find out what’s been going on. He’s got no partisan chip in his bones. Yeah, he’s a registered Republican, but that doesn’t matter.”

And then of course we find out that in the Whitey Bulger case, four people — innocent people — spent 30 years in jail when he knew they didn’t do it. Two of them died in jail! And one of the reasons was so he could protect the identity of a confidential informant. There isn’t any integrity here, and there isn’t any honor, and it doesn’t appear there’s any justice going on. So now we see that Rudy says that Mueller’s team shouts down the idea of written interviews with Trump.

And what we learned, after studying it over the weekend, was that the stuff that had been redacted was simply to protect the incompetent and perhaps biased procedures that they had engaged in at the FBI and the DOJ throughout this entire investigation. There was nothing national security related. It had all been redacted simply to cover up what Strzok and Page had been doing. It had been redacted to cover-up that Comey had been lying to people.

Comey did tell people that Flynn did not lie. Comey did tell people that he had talked to interviewees, people who talked to Flynn and nobody that interviewed Flynn thought that he had lied and yet here he’s pled guilty to lying? Now, the point that I made is Trump enjoys, I think, the political position of victim. He likes being able to tweet out all these things that Rosenstein and Mueller and the rest of these people are doing. Trump has the constitutional authority to unredact anything.

This stuff could have been ordered unredacted months ago. All Trump has to do is pick up the phone and call Rosenstein and order it done. The president can declassify anything. But he hasn’t. He has instead enjoyed tweeting about how unfair it is and about how ridiculous it is and how somebody needs to do something. Because I think Trump’s lawyers have got him convinced that if he did that, that he would be guilty of obstructing justice — and he’s dead wrong, and they’re dead wrong.

Constitution Facts

If the Congress — the elected representatives of the people who created the DOJ! The DOJ’s not in the Constitution. Congress creates the DOJ. They have oversight. If they command to see something, Trump can make them reveal it, and that’s not obstructing justice. But Trump’s lawyers are scared to death that any move — firing Mueller, unredacting this stuff, declassifying — would be seen as obstructing justice, obstructing the investigation and that Trump would be hurt politically.

I think it’s the exact opposite.

I think people would dance in the streets if Trump ordered these people to come clean with what they don’t have and end this.

Rush Limbaugh

It’s Time to Reassert the Power of the Presidency Over Bob Mueller

No special counsel has anywhere near the power of the president of the United States, in terms of the Constitution or any other structure. And neither does the deputy attorney general or the attorney general. The president is the executive branch, and everybody there serves at his pleasure.

But these people are setting it up that if they succeed in getting rid of Trump, then every president thereafter is going to be seen in terms of legal precedent subordinate to, in this case the intelligence community and the DOJ because they’re the ones running this show and acting like the president is beneath them, underneath them, however in the power structure of things.

The Constitution is being reconfigured here, and depending on how this ends, it is going to have precedent setting aspects for the office of the presidency as well.

Abuse of Power:

Leftist Hysteria  vs. Trump Agenda to Drain the Swamp

President Trump tweeted something about “flipping ought to be illegal.” This has sent the Left into meltdown once again. President Trump is not even allowed to be human. They could never hold up under the kind of hatred and pressure that Trump deals with on a daily basis. Actually, lying under oath is illegal. What Mueller is doing, intimidating and terrorizing people and their families ought to be illegal.  If this were done to Obama sycophants, the media wouldn’t stand for it. ~C.D.

 

He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him. ~Proverbs 26:24

Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein. Proverbs 26:27

The Left is  Unfeeling

Rush Limbaugh

But this ignores something that is very important. Donald Trump’s a human being like all of us are. And he’s not superhuman. He’s not inhuman. He’s not immune from the kind of things that people who turn on him do. He’s not immune to feeling anger or sorrow or whatever emotion he has over it. My point is, here’s Trump flipping that [ought] to be illegal.

CNN is devoting a full segment to how that statement proves that Donald Trump is insane, not mentally balanced, dangerous, really underqualified, really has no business being in the White House, has no business being president of the United States, who says things like that? Who says flipping ought to be outlawed?

And of course the Never Trumpers on our side are having the same. They need the vapors. “Oh, my God. Look at the manners, so unsophisticated, and, oh, my God. Look at the lack of character.” But is Donald Trump that unqualified? Let’s take a look, folks.

For the kingdom of the devil must shake, and they which belong to it must needs be stirred up unto repentance, or the devil will grasp them with his everlasting chains, and they be stirred up to anger, and perish;

For behold, at that day shall he rage in the hearts of the children of men, and stir them up to anger against that which is good. 2 Nephi 28:19,20

There is a political party in this country, there is a mainstream media in this country, and there is an entire Washington establishment consisting of a whole lot of people who are cheering for the following.

  • They are cheering for a former secretary of state who mishandled virtually every electronic communication that passed through her office for four years.
  • They are cheering for Hillary Clinton to get away with the serial crimes that she committed throughout the 2016 presidential campaign.
  • They are cheering a former secretary of state, a former first lady to get away with countless illegalities, including a massive pay-for-play scheme revolving around her foundation.
  • They are cheering for a woman who was selling access, policy access to her administration before she was even elected.
  • They are cheering the kind of financial illegalities that Donald Trump cannot even approach having committed.
  • In addition, they are cheering a senator who lied about her heritage for career advancement.
  • This would be Fauxcahontas Warren.
  • They are openly cheering a senator who lied about her heritage for career advancement and who openly admits she doesn’t care that an American woman was murdered by an illegal immigrant. They are cheering that woman.
  • The Democrat Party, the Drive-By Media, the Washington establishment are cheering a rogue special counsel operating way beyond constitutional limits with a team of conflicted partisan hacks who are on a mission to overturn a duly constituted election! There is a political party, the mainstream media and the Washington establishment — which is really all the same — who are cheering the concept of a fourth super branch of government called the special counsel, who sits in daily judgment of the president of the United States.
  • They are cheering an arrangement which does not exist in the U.S. Constitution.
  • They are cheering former FBI and Department of Justice officials who serially abused power in an effort to choose the president of the United States. That would be Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, McCabe, Comey; you fill out the names.
  • They are cheering a teenage Camera Hogg that does a remarkably accurate portrayal of a vulgar fascist when he’s on television.
  • And they are cheering a stunningly ignorant self-proclaimed socialist Millennial said to represent the future of the Democrat Party.
  • They are against, depressed by:
  • These same people who are cheering all of that are depressed by, are threatened by, and wish it wasn’t happening,
  • a robust economy,
  • a strong military,
  • adherence to the rule of law,
  • the reestablishment of America preeminent in trade around the world,
  • an America establishing secure borders to prevent the wanton murder of innocent American citizens by illegal immigrant gang members.

The rising standard of living of millions of Americans, the newfound job and career opportunities for millions of Americans, the lowest historical unemployment rate among African-Americans, one of their big constituent groups, they’re not interested in how well they’re doing. They want to cover that up. They want to bide it.

The big picture is that the man who is responsible for an American rebirth, his administration responsible for a growing economy that all of these other experts said was not possible and that Trump should be really, really, really careful about promising a 3% growth rate, that’s misleading people, that’s setting ’em up for being disappointed, he shouldn’t do this, while we’re at 4.1% economic growth.

So, again, it’s like redefining smart. Who is it that’s really unqualified here? So Donald Trump sits up there and says, “I think we maybe need to have a law against flippers,” and that is added to the list of other things Trump says and does that convinces all these people that he’s got to be sent packing.

Now, I’m sorry. That’s not how the Constitution works. Trump was duly elected, he’s the president, he gets to nominate, Senate gets to advise, consent, confirm, and so forth. But the Democrats are writing a brand-new Constitution each and every day. And the parts they don’t want to adhere to, they’re forgetting, they’re erasing it, and they’re rewriting, such as installing Mueller as a permanent super branch, fourth branch that somehow is justified in daily oversight of Donald Trump. And they’re doing everything they can in their reporting to justify all this is necessary.

But what’s driving all of this is not complicated, and it isn’t minutia. What’s driving all of this is that the votes of 60 million people are seen to not count. They are seen now as irrelevant, and they are seen as forgettable. You and the 60 million others that voted for Trump, your votes don’t count because of the guy you voted for. And so they’re not gonna stop until they exhaust every opportunity at their disposal to get rid of Donald Trump.

Leftists are Violating the Law

For behold, they do study at this time that they may destroy the liberty of thy people. ~Alma 8:17

  • It is they who are violating the law.
  •  It is they who are abandoning and ignoring the Constitution.
  •  It is they who are looking at the all of the robust improvements, economic recovery, and sticking their noses in the air over it and saying it doesn’t matter.
  • They’re saying you don’t matter.
  • They’re saying that Mollie Tibbetts doesn’t matter. She’s just a girl in Iowa. She doesn’t matter. You don’t matter, I don’t, and nobody but them or they matter.

But it’s a full-fledged, daily onslaught from every one of these media outlets. And it’s never ending. It is made up of the most vile, made-up, irresponsible stuff, rooted in one thing: Donald Trump’s not qualified. Donald Trump had no business winning. They can’t explain how he won, so they’re trying to convince people he cheated. They don’t have any evidence for any of the allegations they’ve made. They never will find any evidence for it.

So it boils down to the fact they don’t want Trump in the White House, they don’t like that Trump won, and since that’s the case, they should have the right to get rid of him. And all of you should just stand aside and watch it happen, or support it. I think that’s what people need to be reminded of, rather than getting caught up in all of the little allegations made against Trump, such as his comments about thinking that we need to get rid of flippers

 

Critical Thinking: Media Bias, Identity Politics, Mob Rule vs. Democracy Facts, Constitutional Republic

Critical Thinking:

Media Bias, Identity Politics, Mob Rule vs. Democracy Facts, Constitutional Republic

Rush Limbaugh

Media Bias against the Constitutional Republic

“The subversion of democracy was the explicit intent of the framers.” Wait. What? “The subversion of democracy was the explicit intent of the framers.” “Think the Constitution Will Save Us? Think Again.” That’s the headline to this piece. The subhead: “The subversion of democracy was the explicit intent of the framers.” Now, that headline is designed to appeal to low-information, uninformed people, and the effect of that subheadline is to mean: Your vote doesn’t count!

The framers did not believe in full-fledged, open democracy because that’s majority rule. That’s why we set up a constitutional republic so that elected representatives represent swaths of people. But there is no direct democracy in the United States by design because it’s mob rule! A lot of people don’t understand this. They think that we are democracy. My favorite way of illustrating how we are not a democracy, is let’s say we have a group of five people. Three men… No! Three women and two men.

Democracy means Mob Rule

One of the three women makes a motion. “I motion that we put the two men in jail. Let’s have a vote.” The three women vote “yep;” the two men vote “no.” The two men lose, and they go to jail. That is a democracy. It’s pure mob rule. That’s what we don’t have. We have a representative republic. But these people writing this piece are not attempting to explain that. They’re trying to make you think that the framers of this country knew that elections and democracy needed to be subverted because we can’t trust the people.

The American government is structured by an 18th-century text that is almost impossible to change. These ills didn’t come about by accident; the subversion of democracy was the explicit intent of the Constitution’s framers. For James Madison, writing in Federalist No. 10, ‘Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention’ incompatible with the rights of property owners.

“The byzantine Constitution he helped create serves as the foundation for a system of government that rules over people, rather than an evolving tool for popular self-government.” This is one of the greatest bastardizations of the Constitution I have encountered, and its purpose is to suggest to people on the left who religiously read the New York Times — and other low-information or uneducated people — that our Constitution actually thwarts the will of the people. That our Constitution subverts your having a say in the way your government is running because the founders — these rich white guys — didn’t trust you.

Identity Politics vs. Constitutional Republic

You, Miss African-American! You, Miss Puerto Rican. You, Mr. Whatever. You, minority here, there, and even some of you stupid white people. They didn’t trust you! All of this is designed to misrepresent the Constitution, the founding, and to try to convince people that a bunch of rich white guys set up a government where only they and their descendants would be in possession of true power.

And, as such, it has to be blown up. But the problem, they go on, is the Constitution is too hard to change. It’s just too hard to change! These guys are really, really smart, these rich white guys. We have to take drastic action! Now, they don’t actually get to the point of suggesting eliminating elections. That’s not gonna come immediately. But it’s where all of this is headed.

RUSH: Let me share with you just a couple more things from this op-ed piece in the New York Times, “Think the Constitution Will Save Us? Think Again. … There’s a reason we’re the only developed country without guarantees such as universal health care and paid maternity leave.” Yep, the Constitution! The rich white guys that founded the country. They are the reason. “While preserving and expanding the Bill of Rights’s incomplete safeguards of individual freedoms…” These people are so full of it. That’s…

They don’t even understand the brilliance of the document. “While preserving and expanding the Bill of Rights’s incomplete safeguards of individual freedoms, we need to start working toward the establishment of a new political system that truly represents Americans. … establishing federal control over elections and developing a simpler way to amend the Constitution through national referendum.”

Left seeks to Establish federal control over elections.

In their minds, that means establish liberal or leftist control over elections, and that will eventually lead to getting rid of them.

RUSH: Again, now, the two writers of this piece, Meagan Day and Bhaskar Sunkara, they close by saying, “As long as we think of our Constitution as a sacred document, instead of an outdated relic, we’ll have to deal with its anti-democratic consequences.”

The Founders did not want to Establish Mob Rule

So, ladies and gentlemen, the Constitution is the single undying idea, unifying idea that binds us together. And here’s the left, the American left believing the Constitution is divisive. This is why we can never agree. This is why there is never any common ground. I mean, if we’re gonna take a look at the Constitution, and they see it as a dying relic that is anti-democratic and — in fact, you know, they call it anti-democratic when it is, in the sense that the founders did not want to establish mob rule.

The founders didn’t want to establish a situation in the U.S. Senate where the senators from California could render the senators from Wyoming irrelevant on every vote, why even have a senator from Wyoming. That’s why they did it is to give equal representation to everybody in the country. And most of these people doing the complaining are minorities in one way or another.

And they don’t have the slightest understanding that the Constitution of the United States is the greatest document ever. The greatest document ever written codifying and underscoring the powers of people in the minority.

This is the lone document in the history of nations that has given and granted powers and representation to minorities, not to mention enumerating their right to free speech where the government cannot shut up them up, the government cannot tell them what they can and cannot say, the government cannot infringe on their liberty.

The Constitution protects Us against Mob Rule

The Constitution gives us the first 10 Amendments and the Bill of Rights so that even a unanimous vote in Congress is not enough to strip those God-given rights away because the rights enumerated in our Constitution don’t came from government; they come from God. It is a document for all time.

And the fact that the American left now wants to use it as a building block to begin this process of eliminating the role of elections because they simply can’t win every one of them — do not doubt me this is where we’re headed.

And I’ll take this a step further. When we talk about the left and their grievances, what really are they? Where are we at this stage in our culture and society with all of the division, the lack of unity, seemingly drifting further and further apart. In my mind, there is a single — well, it’s more complicated than this, but there’s a really good, primary reason for all of this. And I believe that it all began with the idea of multiculturalism, because that is what has led to identity politics.
