Posted on 10/12/2017 3:52:39 PM PDT by Kaslin
RUSH: Theres something I have to observe as a setup. I dont know if you people have seen this or not. Ive seen it twice now. Two different stories, one of them from a supposedly conservative columnist who never was and is now demonstrated that she isnt. That would be Jennifer Rubin. People are beginning to invoke perhaps, they say, the necessity of the 25th Amendment. Do you know what the 25th Amendment is?
The 25th Amendment basically is the cabinet gets together and votes on whether or not the president is competent to serve, and if not, they vote him out of office and theres a line of succession that would assume power. This happens. And more and more people well, its two that Ive seen and maybe more than that are now saying were on the verge of needing this because Trump is losing his mind. Trump is wandering around aimlessly in the White House with no friends. Hes muttering to the photos on the wall. Hes lost it and is on the verge of losing it completely.
They evidence they cite is the president demanding to increase our nuclear arsenal by tenfold, despite everybody involved in this denying it. This, of course, is the springboard to Trump supposedly being called a moron by Secretary of State Tillerson, which then led to Trump suggesting an online IQ contest between him and Tillerson in which he would win.
Well, the left, not finding any evidence whatsoever and now scraping the bottom of the barrel with the Trump dossier, cant find any evidence of collusion between Trump and the Russians, are now grasping at every straw. If anybodys losing their minds out there, it is the left, and this Harvey Weinstein story out there on top of everything else thats losing their minds is speeding the process of them going crazy. We are witnessing the left break down and go nuts right before our very eyes. But there are these two references Ive seen. And the Drive-Bys, all it takes is one Drive-By to pick it up, it will be amplified.
So I dont know that Trumps losing his mind. They have never thought he had one. But the reason I mentioned all this is because Trump was on with Hannity last night. Did any of you in there watch Trump with Hannity last night? Well, I saw a little bit of it, and I didnt see anybody out of it. I saw somebody completely relaxed and confident, certainly not sitting on the edge of his seat worried. I didnt see Humphrey Bogart juggling the marbles. I didnt see anything of the sort.
And then at the ceremony at the White House this morning where Trump takes a huge slice out of Obamacare. I saw a relaxed guy laughing and having fun, as he was last night on the Hannity show. We dont have any behavioral evidence that would indicate Trumps losing his mind. Its all found in the Drive-By Media. And its reported in the Drive-By Media by anonymous sources inside the White House, sources close to Secretary Mattis, sources close to Secretary Tillerson, sources close that do not wish to go on the record because of the sensitivity and the nature of the allegations being leveled and so forth. You just dont see any evidence of it, but its out there now.
Jennifer Rubins piece today she writes where now? She used to be at the Wall Street Journal. Thats right, she went to the Washington Post, a so-called conservative blogger. When Do We Reach 25th Amendment Territory? And theres one other reference. I think theres a story on Drudge thats not headlined, but it mentions it in the story.
If you watch Trump this morning, you saw Trump last night, you see Trump at any time, he doesnt appear to be anybody under a dark cloud to me. It seems to me that all of Trumps opponents are the ones cracking up. I mean, the suicide watch is out on leftists, not us. Certainly not on Trump.
The Harvey Weinstein story, gee. I mean, in Hollywood theyre even shocked that somebody could fall this fast. Well, I know that Don Lemon is losing his mind. Theyre all losing their minds over there. Theyre losing their minds everywhere that all of this is happening to them. Look at what is rearing its head. These people have thought they occupied the moral high ground, the sexual harassers and abusers of women were exclusively all on the right.
Well, those stories are few and far between, but on the left youve got Teddy Kennedy, youve got Bill Clinton, youve gotten Weinstein, youve got Anthony Weiner, Carlos Danger and any number of other actors on the left and so many theories that I have developed to, in my mind, explaining all of this are now presenting themselves in front of everybodys eyes.
I mean, they think they have the moral purity, the proper respect for women. And you look on the left and the serial abusers and rapists and the perverts are all found on their side, at least a significant number of them are. While these people have told themselves that they are clean and pure as the wind-driven snow. And theyre reaching I think their wits end at their inability to get rid of Trump. I mean, they thought theyd get this done inside of a month or two. I really do. They believed this stuff. They believed their own BS.
Im sure they believe that Trump colluded with the Russians. Im sure they believe that Putin stole the election. Im sure they believe it. Theyve gotten themselves so immersed in it, they believe it. Thats not mentally healthy. And as they believe a succession of these crazy things and then they dont come to pass, then they get even crazier and nuttier.
And it isnt Trump. Trump is not the one that appears with a dark cloud over him no matter how the Drive-Bys want to spin things. What I see makes me refute everything the Drive-Bys are reporting about Trumps state of mind. He seems to me to be with it, involved, knowledgeable, happy thats the key Trumps supposed to be miserable, you know, nobodys supposed to be able to withstand this kind of withering assault day after day after day after day for over a year.
Everybody should have crumbled by now. But certainly nobody should be thriving at the end it, nobody should be happy, upbeat, determined, but Trump doesnt let go. I think probably Trumps supporters get more depressed than he does over day-to-day events.
RUSH: And we go back to the phones. This is Shelly in Ocala, Florida. Welcome. Im glad you waited. I appreciate your patience.
CALLER: (chuckles) Glad to talk to you, Rush. I have a comment about these people floating that 25th Amendment trying to get rid of Trump
RUSH: Yes, maam?
CALLER: I wonder if they have thought about how theyre going to deal with the fallout if they are actually successful, because the Trump supporters are not just gonna walk away, shrug their shoulders, and leave. They are gonna rip this country apart.
RUSH: They dont care. They dont care what youre doing now. They dont care! They dont care. They literally dont care. This is not about you. Its never been about you and Trumps voters, except to the extent that they could distance Trump voters from Trump, and if to do that they have to get rid of Trump Thats what theyve been trying to do since election night.
CALLER: Yeah, I know that. But, I mean, Im really worried about whats gonna happen if they succeed. The violence thats gonna happen afterwards?
RUSH: If they succeed, it will mean one thing. It will mean that the establishment the elites, whatever you want to call the inside-the-Beltway people that we call the establishment. It will mean that they have the ability to overturn a duly constituted and fair election based simply on the fact they dont like the outcome. If they can do that, then every other election from here on out is rendered meaningless, and thats what people will think. And youre right: There would be hell to pay for it, but they think theyre protected and insulated Inside the Beltway; nobody can get to em.
But, believe me, this is all about Its not even Trumps personality, I think, eggs them on. But even if Trump were a nice guy and were not tweeting and were not If he wasnt saying all these things but if his agenda was the same, they would still be trying to get rid of him because hes an outsider. They simply cannot afford for what has happened here for the results of this election to equal success. They cant permit it. Its the one thing that would render them and their uniqueness irrelevant.
Imagine if an outsider can come in and fix what the American people want fixed and think is wrong. And if an outsider can come in and, inside of four years, reverse the trends of this country and get it back on the right track, what does it say about those inside the Beltway whove been telling us for 30 years theyre trying, theyre working real hard but theyve always had excuses. What will it say? They will be immediately exposed as frauds. So thats what this has always been about.
CALLER: I know, but if they succeed, theres gonna be no putting this back together.
RUSH: I agree with you that it would be very bad. (sigh) Its hard to imagine what actually would happen in terms of what people would do, but I know it would not be pretty. You know, Ive had other people say to me, Do they know what theyre doing? Whats the matter? Theyre still gonna get Pence. It doesnt matter to them. Pence is not an outsider.
In their world, in their view, Pence is one of them. Hes a governor. Hes been a member of Congress. He knows the swamp, knows how it works. Hes not Donald Trump, nobody else is, and it doesnt matter if they ended up with the person they hate most inside the establishment. Get rid of Trump because hes not part of the club is the key. What do you think would happen? Be specific. Tell us what you think would happen.
CALLER: Im afraid to even think of it
RUSH: Well, you obviously have things in mind or you wouldnt call.
CALLER: Total anarchy is one. I mean, they just think that were gonna shrug our shoulders and say, Oh, okay, you win?
RUSH: No. They dont think that. They dont care. They dont think you have the power to do anything to really harm them anyway. They think youll get over it, maybe. But honestly, if they were worried about that, they wouldnt be doing what theyre doing on they wouldnt even be trying. Theyre not worried about that. These people are never worried about public opinion. Thats the point! Public opinion doesnt determine what the swamp does. It never has. The swamp decides what it wants to do: The moneyed people, the donors, people on K Street, the people that write the legislation.
Members of Congress dont even really write legislation. That stuff all happens from outside. Its obvious they dont care. They think that they can deal with whatever you do. And, you know what? I can see where some of them might think theres an upside. If its true anarchy and you blow the place up, that would give them every opportunity to expand the power of government to control you all and to put down whatever, quote, unquote, uprising you engage in. It would be, Goodbye, posse comitatus. If they have to bring tanks into downtown Chicago to keep everything in order, theyd do it.
For a lot of them theyd like nothing better than to be able to erase a bunch of the Constitution and rewrite something that purposely spells out what they can do instead of what they cant. I think something else would happen. I still, to this day, dont think the swamp the establishment, the elites the ruling class, as Angelo Codevilla refers to them, I dont think they really understand how many Trumpists there are. I think they still think the election was an Electoral College fluke and that the vast majority of people in the country oppose Trump.
I dont think they believe that it would be even that significant an uprising. They also think that a number of Trumpists are lazy and will go with the flow anyway and have been conditioned over the course of their lives to accepting that they always lose and that Washington always wins. And so, theyre probably thinking that what will happen with most people is theyll just tune out and stop participating in elections and campaigns and voting, which would also please them. Thats why this is serious.
The 25th Amendment? All these made-up stories of Trump losing his mind and being mentally unfit and claiming that he wants to expand the nuclear arsenal 10 times. No matter how many times they deny it, they continue to run the story. Still looking for proof of the Trump dossier. These people are desperate as Ive ever seen a group of people.
That doesnt get reported, though. They instead are reported as normal, concerned, worried about the mental stability of our president. The Drive-Bys are not properly characterizing who their sources are. I think theres a high level of panic in the invisible sectors of the swamp that we never see because the cameras are not allowed. I think theres been panic ever since election night, coupled with the shock of disbelief. And I dont think its abated. And I think theyre frustrated as hell.
Theyve thrown everything theyve got at Trump. Everything. Theyve thrown a combination of every trick theyve used to get rid of previous elected officials, presidents, members of Congress, the Senate, so forth, and candidates. Theyve combined every technique and every dirty trick theyve got, and theyve used them all on Trump.
And not only is he still there, he is continuing to reverse their agenda as identified as Obamas agenda, this executive order signing today on taking the chopping block to Obamacare. Anyway, Shelly, I appreciate the call. I really do.
A quick break and back with more after this.
RUSH: By the way, folks, one thing I want to add here. In any of these stories, if you hear anything about Trump being unstable on MSNBC, youve gotta reject it. Its MSNBC thats unstable. MSNBC has people that just and the same thing for Vanity Fair. Folks, if you hear anything, if a source for anything about Trump is in Vanity Fair, automatically reject it. Vanity Fair is populated by people that are just irrational. Theyre uninformed. Theyre part of the Hollywood media culture, celebrity media culture, and theyre not wired. They are being used as tools. So is MSNBC.
Im just trying to help you out here. Ive got no reason to mislead you on any this. Why do you think I never quote them here except to have fun with em? But both of those sources, if youve got somebody in the White House who really wants you to believe that Trumps losing his mind and that Trumps on the verge of having to go in a little yellow bus and the men in the white coats are coming to take me away, ha-ha, and you hear about that in Vanity Fair. And then think back to NBC spiking the story on Harvey Weinstein and forcing their own little reporter, Sinatras son, to head down there to the New Yorker, Ronan Farrow.
I mean, there are certain things you just have to automatically reject if you only hear it, or hear it first in some of these obscure, way, way out there, I mean, places that are just the whole energy is hate. You gotta learn to just be suspicious of it.
CALLER: Hey, Rush. Its a pleasure. Thanks for taking my call.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I initially called for this 25th Amendment. If they were to get this done and they just dont understand that Pence is next in line, what it does say about everyone who the president has appointed as his cabinet? They have one knocked out. It would be complete anarchy. It would be scary what they think that they could accomplish if they were to do that one thing. And there are a lot of people, I see it across my Facebook every day, that are, you know, Trumps unfit, they just go on and on about it, and its growing in numbers. So what do you take? I mean, how do we do about this? Where do we go? What do we do? As people who want a free and just economy and government
RUSH: Well, remind me. Im going to make a note to myself. The process, you know, implementing number 25 is not easy. You need two-thirds votes in the House to get there. This is not just a cabinet taking a vote.
Trump, Rush, the one two punch that is causing many Leftists to hit the canvas.
...8, 9, 10...
If anything, 0bama should have been removed under the 25th.
Actually, A2,S1,C5 of the Constitution had it been inforced, prevented him from swearing in...twice.
Oouucchh! That photo of J. Rubin! If there ever was a sight that could make a 100 car freight train take a dirt road; that is IT!
She's got liberal written right in her face, doesn't she?
If President Trump is overthrown in a coup then I would hope that the military would act to restore him and put down the traitors with extreme prejudice.
Ditto here too.
That’s a man, baby ...
The left should stop.dreaming. .If they hate Trump so much why not just come out and advocate a Bolshevik style coup to replace him with Obama or Hillary? Perhaps their hated Second Amendment is all that stops them
But then we would have had McLame and Romney which wouldn’t have been any different.
So all Liberals would accomplish would be having Mike Pence be Acting President for a short time and then President Trump would get his powers back. So what's the point? Liberals are again showing they do not know how the Constitution works.
...and besides that if they don’t want all the mess coming out from California with Weinstein and all the mess coming out in D.C. in the Pizza Gate thing (which entails both) then they best sit down and shut up...
Either way, 2018 is going to be a very interesting election of people saying bye bye to all those pockets full of money...
"A time will come when the whole world will go mad. And to anyone who is not mad they will say: 'You are mad, for you are not like us.'"
OH MY, Rush was full of words today!
As to the left, ignorance becomes them.
Yes, it would have been different. Sure, their policies may have been bad...perhaps 75% as bad as barry's...but the bottom line is they would have been Constitutional.
