RUSH: Speaking of relics, Dan Rather was in Manhattan on Monday night. He was wandering around. I think that he was looking for a National Guard office. I think hes still following leads on the George W. Bush story. He ended up at a TV network, and they were so excited to see him at the TV network that they put him on the air. It was Friday night. They were ecstatic! Heres Dan Rather wandering the streets of Manhattan looking for a National Guard office, and he wanders into a TV network/cable news network. They put him on the air, and they asked couple questions.
The first question: Is it a big enough scandal that theres uncertainty about the future of this presidency and our political volatility as a country? Does that question make any sense to any of you? Ill read it again: Is it a big enough scandal that theres uncertainty about the future of this presidency and our political volatility as a country? This is a question wandering aimlessly in search of common sense. Anyway, it must have made sense to Rather, because while looking for a National Guard office and instead stumbling into a TV network, he answered.
Crazy Dan Rather: Russia Hacking Was 'Cyber' And 'Psychological' 'Pearl Harbor' For U.S.
RATHER: Your question was are we in a situation in real peril. I would say the Trump presidency is in peril and because its in peril, we are in some danger ourselves, because theres a lot that needs to be done in the country. But, you know, theres so much talk about Trump and Comey whos telling the truth and isnt telling the truth. I think its really important for Americans to understand the big question and how this all started and how it Really, the direction it should go. The question is: What did the Russians do? Because here you have a situation, the Russians pulled off what I call a psychological Pearl Harbor a surprise attack that was devastating to the confidence of our whole system of elections and therefore our whole system of government.
RUSH: Do you believe this? They cant let go of it. Comey admitted that he told Trump three times Trump was not a target. Theyve moved on from the collusion. There isnt any evidence. Nobody has any. There wont be any. The Russians didnt collude with anybody to affect the outcome of the election. They didnt tamper with vote machines. The Democrats in the media have even let go of that. They have now moved on to obstruction of justice as a means of getting Trump. But heres Dan Rather saying the Russians tampering with our election is the equivalent of a psychological Pearl Harbor.
RUSH: Okay. So heres the next question for Dan Rather Friday night. Okay, you look at recent history, Dan. You see Russia do the same thing to small countries and other countries in their geographic, ideological orbit you know, former Soviet states, small countries on their borders. But it was a shock and it was a surprise to us because we thought, Hey, we think of ourselves as a country thats protected by our oceans. But also we think of ourselves as the great power in the world, as the sole surviving superpower in the world, someone who would never be susceptible to the kind of tactics that would work against these smaller countries that Russia has been influencing.'
RATHER: If they tried it, it wouldnt work against us. In our hubris if you want to use that word we were too confident. We were over confident. Listen, the Russians ever tried that here; it never would work in America. Well, it worked, as I say, to devastating, if not catastrophic, and I called it a psychological Pearl Harbor.
RUSH: This has gotten so far out of hand. You know, the question here, if I may translate: Dan, were the lone superpower in the world. Were so big, the Russians would never penetrate here. It could never happen. It happens to all these smaller countries that the Russians bully and so forth but it would never happen to us. And Rather said, Yeah, you would think that. You would think that. But no, it was the Pearl Harbor, the psychological Pearl Harbor.
I dont know what it is, ignorance or if its just stupidity. But the idea that these people dont have any idea what the intelligence community actually does all day when theyre doing their job? The Russians have been infiltrating all levels of American society for decades. This isnt anything new. The fact that they are constantly trying to do this? So are the Chinese, and so are the North Koreans and so are the Israelis are constantly trying to spy on us, and vice-versa. It isnt anything new.
RUSH: Speaking about foreign countries and their intelligence agencies hacking the United States, do you remember the Office of Personnel Management, OPM? The Office of Personnel Management is basically the agency that handles compensation for federal employees. Its the human resources division, if you will. It does a lot of things. In fact, it was the OPM that Obama used to cover every federal worker with Obamacare. When Obamacare was originally written, federal workers were not automatically covered by it, and a bunch of them raised hell.
A bunch of federal workers, government workers claimed they couldnt afford it. They couldnt afford the premiums. They raised holy hell. So Obama maneuvered them over to the Office of Personnel Management because he had some funding, shall we say, opportunities there, and thats where federal workers ended up being granted their coverage under Obamacare. Its different from the House and Senate. They have a whole different arrangement. They are exempted in total (snorts) from Obamacare. But, anyway, thats who the Office of Personnel Management is.
The Chinese successfully hacked 22 million personnel files there during the Obama administration, and it made news, but that was about it. There wasnt a big kerfuffle over it. There wasnt any outrage. There wasnt any allegation that Obama might have colluded with the ChiComs to help them hack 22 million people and their privacy and their personal records. The Chinese easily hacked the Office of Personnel Management. This happens all the time. Now, I dont know if in the case of your average cable news anchor on analyst, your average journalist out there or your average Democrat, they know.
I dont know what this. I dont know if its ignorance or stupidity or if theyre acting when they act outraged that the Russians, for the first time ever, managed to find their way into an American election. The Russians are constantly attempting to infiltrate and have succeeded. Why do you think theres so many leftist college professors in America? Soviet infiltration, communist infiltration. They have succeeded. Theyre all over the place. This is not conspiracy talk. Its not even arguable. Its
Thirty years ago, if you talked like this they would accuse you of being a conspiracy kook. But it is one of the most effective infiltration programs any nation has ever run. And theyve succeeded wildly. Even after the Berlin Wall fell, the Russians didnt go away. The idea that the Russians successfully hacked an election? I just It frustrates me to no end because as I say I dont know if theyre being stupid, genuinely stupid (which is a problem), if theyre ignorant (which is an equal problem), or if they all know this is BS and are just acting it.
But either way, its disingenuous, and its creating a picture that is totally fake and totally phony.
Not all who wander are lost...
And he proved it with GE-O-METRIC logic!
And he has documents (that look suspiciously like they were written on the old IBM Selectric in his home office)
We know what the Russians did, Kenneth.
They circulated a fake dossier about Donald Trump and you and your fellow blowfish in The Fake News Media bit. Hook, line and sinker.
The problems came when We, The People, of The United States of America, saw right through the ruse and told you and your fellow Fake News Repeaters to go fly a kite.
You done hung yourselves up by your own petards, Kenneth.
I just want to know what the frequency is?
Apparently, Deadeye Dan was the first person to view the Zapruder film on November 23rd, the day after the assassination.
The film was not released to the public until the mid-70s, so Dan's report was the only thing ordinary Americans got from the single best piece of evidence of what actually happened that day, at least for many years.
And guess what? Dan the News Man reported that Kennedy's head was thrown forward by the impact of the shot that killed him. Anyone who looks at the actual film can see that the exact opposite is the case.
Some believe that Dapper Dan's rapid subsequent rise in the news biz was helped along by outside forces who decreed that he must be rewarded for toeing the party line and backing up the conclusions of the Warren Report before it was issued.
So this old kook hasn’t been institutionalized yet?
Well that is Dan Blather for you, and no one should be surprised.
