Guns for Yee, But Not for Thee
Rush ^ | March 27, 2014 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 03/27/2014 1:29:36 PM PDT by Kaslin


RUSH: Folks, the FBI is up to something. The FBI is raiding and arresting Democrats all over this country. You know, it's incredible. I mean, Democrat mayors, and in California, a secretary of state, old buddy Leland Yee, man, is this guy in bad trouble. This guy's in deep. Details coming up on Leland Yee. In fact, Sacramento, local media, my adoptive hometown, they feel so sorry for Senator Yee because, A, he got caught in a massive gunrunning operation. They feel sorry for him. He got caught in a massive gunrunning operation. He's one of the biggest anti-Amendment Two people you'll find in the Democrat Party. He's the biggest hypocrite you can find. He's out there saying nobody can have their guns, and here he is running 'em.

AKs, folks! We're not talking about Saturday night specials. This guy's into the big stuff that kills people, like automatic weapons. That's the automatic word for liberals. You say automatic weapons and they just have conniptions. So the local Sacramento media's feeling so sorry for Senator Yee because this happened to him. He didn't do anything, see, it happened. And then they really feel bad because he was criticized by me yesterday.

I'm gonna get to all this FBI stuff. I'll tell you, this is fascinating to me, what the FBI is doing, and they've been doing this for a while. These investigations that they've been engaged in have been going on for years. If I didn't know better -- and I don't know better, I'd have no idea, but it just seems like, I mean, the number of years this has been going on, it's almost as though somebody -- and the FBI's part of the Regime. Obama runs the FBI. They're part of the executive branch. But, man, they're going after Democrats and they're nailing them. It's like they've been doing this for years under the cover of darkness and everything else in a way that is perhaps saving the country.


RUSH: From the Los Angeles Times: "Federal prosecutors unsealed an indictment against state Sen. Leland Yee in court Wednesday, accusing him of conspiring to commit wire fraud and traffic firearms." Military grade weapons Senator Yee allegedly trafficking. Senator Leland Yee was among the most vocal anti-Second Amendment Democrats in the country. This guy wanted to eliminate it. He didn't want you to have any guns, and here he is indicted for trafficking in military grade weapons.

"In all, 26 people, including former school board president Keith Jackson, were indicted on charges related to an extensive crime ring headed by well-known Chinatown figure Raymond Chow." (interruption) Yeah, he's also known as the Shrimp Boy. Raymond Chow, the Shrimp Boy. He was also arrested and charged. Now, Raymond Chow, the Shrimp Boy, is head of the Wo Hop To gang. It's a well-known criminal gang, California, Shrimp Boy, Raymond Chow heads it up.

"The indictment alleges Yee and Jackson defrauded 'citizens of honest services' and were involved in a scheme to traffic firearms in exchange for thousands in campaign donations to the senator," Senator Yee. "Federal prosecutors also allege Yee agreed to perform official acts in exchange for the money, including one instance in which he introduced a businessman to state legislators who had significant influence over pending medical marijuana legislation. In exchange, the businessman -- who was actually an undercover FBI agent -- agreed to donate thousands to Yee's campaign fund, according to the indictment. The indictment also describes an August 2013 exchange in which Jackson told an undercover officer that Yee had an arms trafficking contact. Jackson allegedly said Yee could facilitate a meeting for a donation."

Now, Raymond Chow, also known as the Shrimp Boy, who has been connected over the years to the criminal gang Wo Hop To, "was indicted for money laundering, conspiracy to receive and transport stolen property, and conspiracy to traffic contraband cigarettes."

These guys were into all of it. Democrats. Democrats looking out for the little guy. Democrats trafficking in military grade weapons for campaign contributions. Trafficking in black market cigarettes, trafficking in the evil weed. Well, not so evil in California. And all the while Senator Leland Yee is demanding that there be a boycott against me for attempting to translate the ChiCom premier at a press conference with Obama, and he's, again, as I said it, stated he's just virulently anti the Second Amendment.

I mean, if he could, he'd get everybody to have to give up their guns. And, yeah, it's hypocrisy, but it's worse than that, folks. This trafficking in military grade weapons and black market cigarettes with a well-known gang, the Wo Hop To gang with Shrimp Boy, Raymond Chow, all for campaign contributions.

After facilitating meetings between other gang members he knows and with other elected officials, "The indictment was unsealed in federal court in downtown San Francisco after FBI and other law enforcement officials carried out multiple raids early Wednesday. FBI agents also searched Yee's Sacramento office Wednesday. San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr described the raids to KCBS as 'massive.'

"'Hundreds of officers are involved in this,' he said. Dan Lieberman, Yee's press secretary, said Wednesday morning that his office would not comment on the FBI raids. Representatives for the U.S. attorney's office could not immediately be reached for comment." Let's go to the audio sound bites and to my adopted hometown in Sacramento where all of this that you hear today literally actually began back in October of 1984. This is KTXL-TV Fox 40 Eyeball News. We have a portion here of the correspondent Sonseeahray Tonsall reporting about the arrest of California State Senator Leland Yee on corruption charges.

TONSALL: Allegations that since March of 2011, Yee has been running with the Chinese organized crime group, the Ghee Kung Tong [sic] and it's leader known as Shrimp Boy. Taking cash to pay down $70,000 worth of old campaign debt for a failed run for Mayor in San Francisco. Another alleged transaction mentions promise of contracts for a client of an undercover FBI agent. Yee, now the third Democrat indicted in the last few months for public corruption and misuse of office, making it tough on his party's agenda.

RUSH: It's not gonna be tough on his party. It isn't gonna matter. They're Democrats out there. He's gonna end up not having anything happen to him. His buddies are the judges. His buddies are gonna be on any jury if there is one. Besides, the Republicans don't even have a presence in California. I mean, it'll be embarrassing for Democrat state senator Leland Yee, but these guys don't get -- hell, this guy was doing great work. He's trying to legalize marijuana. He's trying to get guns out to everybody. Okay, so he's trying to earn a little money to do his good works by trafficking AKs, big whoop. Easy to look the other way. Now, the next bite, it's even worse for Democrat Senator Leland Yee. The next report from the correspondent Sonseeahray Tonsall mentions me.

TONSALL: He's also taking his knocks from an old adversary, Rush Limbaugh. Yee attacked him back in 2011 for mocking the Chinese premier, and today Rush on the attack.

RUSH ARCHIVE: They sit up there all majestically in their royalty and they try to eliminate their opposition, all the while their hands are in the till and they're engaging in corruption I couldn't even dream of.

RUSH: And of course that makes me the bad guy, saying that. See, poor Leland, poor Senator Yee. First he gets indicted. Aw. Such a nice guy. And then it got even worse. Can you imagine, here he is indicted on weapons trafficking charges and illegal campaign contributions and running bogus cigarettes and hanging around with the gang and Shrimp Boy, and even worse than that is having me talk about him on the radio. I am living rent free in their heads. Can you believe that? Even worse than being indicted is the fact that I was on the attack.

I wasn't on the attack. I never go on the attack. I get up here and I look at things being attacked that I believe in, people being attacked that I believe in, and I defend 'em. I defend the institutions, the ideas, and the people that I believe in.

Anyway, this is the tip of the iceberg. Big city mayors are going down. Democrat mayors being investigated left and right by the FBI. Do you know, folks, to show you how bad, the FBI has also -- we're gonna get to details of that in a second here -- the FBI has dumped the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate crimes resource? Now, the Southern Poverty Law Center is run by this genuine loco weed by the name of Mark Potok.

This guy exists for one reason, and that is to make false allegations about racism and sexism and bigotry and homophobia and hate crimes against standard, ordinary, run-of-the-mill conservatives whenever they open their mouths. And he's accredited, the Drive-Bys, whenever Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center says anything, he's gospel. And the FBI has dropped Potok and the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate crimes resource. This is a big thing, too.

Hate crimes are nothing to sneeze at. If you are accused of one, a hate crime is when you have some sort of emotion attached to whatever other crime that you did. Like if you squash an ant, if you were mad when you did it, they accuse you of a hate crime and double your punishment. It's a judgmental thing, and that's the kind of thing that the Southern Poverty Law Center did, was run around and attach hate to standard, ordinary, everyday conservatism. The FBI tracked down whoever the Southern Poverty Law Center targeted, and to have these guys thrown overboard as sources on this stuff is huge. I think this FBI activity against these Democrat mayors is in and of itself huge. Of course it's not being talked about much in the Drive-By Media, but it's profoundly damaging and very embarrassing.

By the way, I just found something here, placed in front of me from the actual indictment of Democrat State Senator Leland Yee. Quote: "Senator Yee said, 'Do I think we can make some money? I think we can make some money. Do I think we can get the good? Yes, I think we can get the goods.'" According to Senator Yee, the arms dealer source, the weapons from Russia. So the weapons that Senator Yee was trafficking in came from Putin. Well, they came from Russia.


RUSH: Let me read you just a couple of more things from the indictment of California state senator Leland Yee. (interruption) No, I'm not picking on him. How in the world am I on picking on Senator Yee? He's been indicted. See, that's the way people think. In fact, can I offer some other observations? How about this? Isn't this the kind of thing Democrats accuse the Tea Party of doing and being?

This is the kind of person the Democrats say are members of the Tea Party. "Yeah, they're nuts pro-lifers running around. They can't wait to fire off their guns! They're trafficking in these big military weapons. They all think they're GI Joe," and look who it ends up being. These wackos that start pulling the trigger and mowing people down and trafficking guns, all end up being Democrats.

Now, from the indictment: "Yee asked (the agent) to provide an inventory list of desired weapons and he would see what they can do," and the agent "told Yee he would deliver $2 million in cash." So Leland Yee had $2 million. He was gonna go get $2 million worth of guns. The agent asked about "shoulder-fired, automatic weapons." Senator Leland Yee (Democrat-California), responded by saying, "The automatic weapons are the equivalent of the M16, automatic service weapon."


Not semiautomatic.

Democrat California Senator Leland Yee -- that's Y-e-e -- was trafficking in M16s. The agent then asked "about the availability of shoulder-fired missiles or rockets." Senator Yee responded, "I told him about the rockets and things like that." This is an undercover agent. So Senator Yee is making it sound like he's got these M16s and shoulder-fired rockets. Senator Yee said, "Do I think we can make some money?

"Yep, I think we can make some money. Do I think we can get the goods? Yep, I think we can get the goods." "According to Senator Yee, the arms dealer sourced the weapons from Russia." It was M16s, and it was $2 million in cash. These quotes from the indictment, they're just from the gunrunning section. There's a whole bunch of different other sections on the bogus cigarettes, the gang activity.

There were any number of other illegal activities going on. It really is a devastating indictment. Of course, to people like Senator Leland Yee, I'm the bad guy -- and all conservatives, Tea Party, we're the bad guys. Look at this: Running guns, M16s, campaign contributions. He's a senator, and he's running for secretary of state!

Warminster, Pennsylvania. This is Chris, and I'm glad you called, sir. It's great to have you on the program. Hello.

CALLER: Hi, Rush. Great program. Love your show.

RUSH: Thank you very much, sir.

CALLER: Okay. So, listening to all of this, you always say that liberals are never actually doing what they say they're trying to do. Like they're trying to ban guns, and that's never, ever the issue. You have to wonder if they try to ban guns to increase the demand so that when they actually sell the guns on the black market, they can make more money for their campaign contributions.

RUSH: Well, in this case, I see what your point is. But I don't think that the anti-gun attitude or mentality of the Democrats is phony. In fact, I think they think it's the biggest mistake in the Constitution. The whole thing is a mistake, Amendment No. 2. That and the free speech clause of No. 1, those are the ones that have to go. You disarm the citizens and you don't have to fear them at all.

You don't have to worry about anything. They're dead serious about it. No, in this case, I think there's just a guy trying to get rich. He's peddling his influence, pretending to be a big-time power broker. You'd be amazed, folks, at the number of people in certain elements of the American pop culture who look at gangs and gang membership enviously.

You'd be amazed at the number of people that want to be in gangs 'cause it's cool, and it's powerful, and it's exciting. I think, you know, what does Senator Leland Yee (Democrat-California) earn? Probably not much. Here's a chance to make a big score. I don't think he's thinking beyond that about limiting demand and raising prices. But I'll tell you, this indictment that includes him is 137 pages.

That's a lot of criminal allegations. Now, sometimes they overcharge. They throw a bunch of stuff in there in an effort to get a plea so as not to go to court. And, of course, yeah. You know, of course we need campaign finance reform. See, if we didn't have the Second Amendment today, poor Senator Yee wouldn't have even been in trouble. If we'd have gotten rid of guns long ago, he wouldn't have any to traffic or sell.

Like I heard this when it was live today...

If I were a Republican elected official, I would be shoring up my team, and checking the list twice for any deficiencies and discrepancies...

Because the Feds are on their way...There will be as many Republicans getting nabbed for all sorts of transgressions a way down the road getting closer to the elections...Prolly later on this summer...Just in time for these democrats who are being purged to get them out of the current news cycle leading up to the elections...

Threw away a great career to be a big shot, make money under the table and act like he’s a bad guy out of a Bruce Lee movie.

Of all of the anti-gun zealots this one makes the most sense. When guns are outlawed, only outlaws have guns, and this guy was selling them to outlaws. I get it now. It isn’t really illogical at all.

HOW DEMOCRATS GET AND KEEP PUBLIC OFFICE--101: California Democrat, State Sen Leland Yee, discussed w/ an undercover FBI agent about supplying terroristic- style weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder-fired automatic weapons and exchange for campaign contributions.

Sen Lee showed the FBI agent the entire process of how to get those weapons from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines into the United States (according to the FBI affidavit). Yee's alleged crimes also include:

<><> wire fraud,

<><> money laundering,

<><> corruption in office,

<><> bribery,

<><> alleged murder-for-hire plots targeting a political consultant who apparently crossed Yee,

<><>international weapons trafficking conspiracy in exchange for campaign contributions to Yee.


LESSON REFERENCE: Sen Yee's Democratic Playbook---plotting w/ terrorists to advance his political ambitions---- is widely used in Democrat circles.

Former Pres Nill Clinton was grinning like a simpering fool at the annual meeting of the tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative Foundation" few months back.. Notwithstanding the bombshell news that (1) the Clintons had employed a Muslim Brotherhood activist....and, (2) the Clinton Foundations were outed by the NY Times for their shady dealings and runaway spending.

Gehad al Haddad (above), Muslim Brotherhood activist AND former Clinton ready to carry out presidential orders. Gehad is currently sitting in a nice comfy Egyptian jail as we type. Gehad al Haddad was a Muslim Brotherhood spox--while simultaneously working at Hillary and Bill's tax-exempt foundation.

Gehad was arrested by the Egyptian military for inciting violence AT THE SAME TIME he was a Clinton employee. Gehad knows plenty about the way the M/B uses tax-exempts for money-laundering (to finance terror activities against America).


THE CLINTON-MUSLIM TERRORISM CONNECTION --- The Muslim terrorist was working at the Clinton Foundation AND conducting terrorist activities at the same time. Gehad al Haddad's intimacy w/ the Clintons explains why they remade themselves into the hallowed "Clinton Family Foundation."

The Clintons doing their "Holy Family" act.

NOTE The Clintons' shady foundation financing is unveiled in a recent NYT expose of Clinton corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism. Actions Billy took as president now serve to fuel hefty contributions to the foundation.

The Clintons' shady tax-exempt modalities are unveiled in the recent NYT investigative story. Corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism. The Clintons didn't have a pot to *** in in Arkansas---never even had a home to call their own. Now they're multi-millionaires.......with hundreds of millions in donations from dubious sources financing Hillary's ambitions and Bill's ego-driven obsession for being in the limelight.


There needs to be a thorough going-over of the three tax-exempt Clinton Foundations and their assorted money-grabbing derivations.

We need to know who pays/funds the Clinton's lifestyle/political ambitions---- especially b/c Hillary is running for prez. It is important to know to whom the Clinton's are truly indebted.

NY POST EXCERPT ----The Bill Clinton Foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses — Bill Clinton’s foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the nonprofit’s tax forms reveal.....includes $4.2 million in 2011 for the William J. Clinton Foundation (to which Hillary and Chelsea are attached); $730,000 for the Clinton Global Health Initiative; and $7.2 million for the Clinton Health Action Initiative (CHAI).

They keep calling it gun running but it seems like it's also aiding and abetting terrorism. AKA treason.

California State Sen. Leland Yee charged with promising guns, missiles from Muslim group...

Is there some reason we can't call traitors traitors anymore? And prosecute them for treason?

If you were a prominent Democrat under this administration, seeing what was done to and by Eric Holder, why would you have any fear of the feds coming after you?

It sounds like a rouge FBI operation to save the republic to me.

You don't understand the way these weasels think.

First you go after the Dems, the ones that make the splashiest headline are best. Probably someone who wouldn't play ball with the higher muckity-mucks in the feral government, or didn't donate as much as they should. It's a perfect opportunity to clean house.

THEN you wait to as close to elections as possible to go after the Pubbies....the conservative ones, of course. No detail will be too small nor no lie to big at this point. They'll be so busy fighting charges, they won't even have time to campaign.

It's a win/win situation for anyone trying to push us further down the (spit) progressive path.

It has not been done that way in the past.

In the past it has been if a Republican jaywalked, throw him out of office.

If a Democrat runs a homosexual brothel out of his house, give him a medal!

An important point in favor of your theory is that Yee is not Black.
