Democrats Say Trump and Republicans Hate Children
Partial transcript as follows (courtesy of RushLimbaugh.com):
This children and families being separated at the border? It is an entirely manufactured crisis. It’s entirely manufactured. This has been going on for years. It happened during the Obama administration. Nobody said a word about it, primarily the media. Some might say, “Well, that doesn’t excuse it continually happening.” You gotta keep it all in perspective, and wait ’til you understand why. This is all about asylum seekers, folks. It’s all about people attempting to invade our country, not emigrate here.
“All of these unaccompanied minors – their parents force them out of the house in Guatamala, El Savador wherever, put them on the trains, put them on the bus and send them unaccompanied to the United States on a journey where they could be severely injured or killed. Nobody is separating these people in the United States, their own parents are separating themselves from their kids when they put them on this train, when they put them on the flatbeds, when the put them on the buses, or the mule backs or whatever else they are using to get them in.”
“Remember it used to be Stormy Daniels. The drive-bys were totally devoted to a porn star. They were converting a porn star into a credible spokeswoman against Donald Trump — where is that mouth trap lawyer of hers, Avenatti– done and been there, used up, spit out and moved on,” he said. ‘Remember, before that it was David ‘camera’ Hogg and the students at the school in Florida and they occupied a crisis involving guns, for how many weeks did that go on? At various stages it has been the Russian Trump collusion story. It’s just one manufactured crisis after another.”
“One of the reasons that this exists is to take the IG report off the table. To provide mechanisms whereby they don’t have to report on the great and robust economic news, or anything else positive regarding the Trump administration. They lost, they’re the losers in the last election. Their voters and their side represents a minority of thinking. And yet they get away with going on offense with this never ending accusatory journalism against us, Trump. Thank God for Donald Trump, not backing down at all. In fact, he is doubling down”
- George Papadopoulos was entrapped by three people, including the person who is reputed to be the spy
- A FISA warrant, as you know, was secured to spy on Carter Page because of the Steele dossier. But nothing came of Mr. Page. They dropped Carter Page entirely.
- Using the media, when the Steele dossier was exposed as a fraud, when it was exposed as an opposition research document, the intelligence people, the FBI, DOJ, went into stage 2, came up with a new reason, ostensibly to trigger the investigation. Turns out it wasn’t Carter Page. It was George Papadopoulos
RUSH: I now know who the spy is. I know now know who the FBI was running in the Trump campaign. I don’t think I’m gonna give you the name of the spy, but I’m gonna tell you everything the spy has done. It is the most amazing story. It is a story of entrapment. When you hear this, it’s gonna infuriate you. You’re gonna realize how utterly phony this entire investigation of Donald Trump is. It’s phonier than you even realize now.
And there is a CliffsNotes version of this, and there is the intricate detailed version of this. I’m gonna give you the CliffsNotes version when we get into this. The name of the spy, you may not know it, it’s not somebody when you hear the name, “Oh, that person.” It’s not that kind of person. Even to call the person a spy is a little bit of a stretch. It’s more like an operative employed by the FBI to basically entrap somebody who worked with the Trump campaign in a peripheral way, and it worked like a charm.
And it all involved the name George Papadopoulos. Does the name George Papadopoulos ring a bell? George Papadopoulos is the so-called second reason the Mueller investigation or the FBI investigation into Trump colluding with Russia began. The first reason we were given was Carter Page. A FISA warrant, as you know, was secured to spy on Carter Page because of the Steele dossier. But nothing came of Mr. Page.
The New York Times over the New Year’s weekend, 2017-2018, wrote a story saying that actually it was something else that triggered everything, and that was George Papadopoulos. They dropped Carter Page entirely and, using the media, when the Steele dossier was exposed as a fraud, when it was exposed as an opposition research document, the intelligence people, the FBI, DOJ, went into stage 2, came up with a new reason, ostensibly to trigger the investigation.
Turns out it wasn’t Carter Page. It was George Papadopoulos. And do you remember what they said Papadopoulos did? Papadopoulos got drunk one night at a bar in London and started talking to somebody that just happened to be an ambassador from Australia. And Papadopoulos told this guy that the Russians had thousands of Hillary Clinton emails. The New York Times weekend story, New Year’s weekend in 2017-2018 stressed that that is what actually triggered the investigation.
Well, Papadopoulos was entrapped by three people, including the person who is reputed to be the spy. And very simply here’s the CliffsNotes version of what happened. George Papadopoulos, 24-year-old peripheral member of the Trump foreign policy campaign team. He was a nothing. He was a nobody, which made him a perfect mark. He was a young guy who wanted to go places.
- The main thrust of this bite, people may not know, the Senate put in the last budget that they’re not even gonna do a budget next year. So no chance for wall funding,
- This budget is designed to separate Trump voters from Trump. This budget is designed to make Trump voters think that Trump’s presidency is irrelevant.
RUSH LIMBAUGH: Even before I had gotten time to get into the nuts and bolts of this it was patently obvious to me that this budget is designed to separate Trump voters from Trump. This budget is designed to make Trump voters think that Trump’s presidency is irrelevant. This budget is designed to make Trump voters concluded, “You know what? There isn’t gonna be a wall and there isn’t gonna be anything serious on immigration and so having Trump be president is meaningless.”
That’s what this budget is designed to make you think, but after it’s signed into law. It’s 2,200 pages. There is no way anybody could have read all of it and digested it in the limited time they had before the vote.
RUSH: The main thrust of this bite, people may not know, the Senate put in the last budget that they’re not even gonna do a budget next year. So no chance for wall funding, no chance to get the Goodlatte bill in, Meaning this budget is gonna last a lot longer than the six months we’re being told it’s gonna last. But let’s go through some of the details in the bill. Because, folks, I’m gonna have to characterize here before I start reciting some of these things. It’s so obvious what this is.
This is the Washington establishment, and they’re doing everything they can to destroy Donald Trump, to block his agenda using the budget as a means of doing so by making sure that none of his agenda is paid for and that efforts to implement that agenda are going to be blocked by virtue of things they have added into this budget. The Republican Party is not aligned with their elected president. They are not helping him advance his agenda. They are stonewalling it.
And it’s time to stop thinking of the Congress as made up of Republicans and Democrats. This remains what it always has been, establishment versus outsider, ruling class versus Trump and his voters. And we’ll have an exclamation point on that because I’ve been holding on to something that I ran into in the past couple of days that just opens the floodgates on the Russian collusion side of all of this. And I’ve been waiting for confirmation of what I have discovered, and I got some of it today so we’re gonna be able to go with that, but all things in due time.
This budget is an absolute disgrace. Apart from the absence of any dealing with the DACA kids, the immigration aspects of this budget are nothing more than a huge victory for the open borders people! A huge victory for the anti-enforcement of immigration law people. Nancy Pelosi was gloating on the floor of the House. She said to the president, “If you want to think you’re getting a wall, you just think it and sign the bill.”
- Mueller is doing everything he can to pressure Manafort into saying that he either saw collusion or saw obstruction. It is pressure designed to get Manafort to say what Mueller wants to hear.
- Mueller needs a witness, ’cause there isn’t any evidence.
- This is a political counterterrorism investigation that’s being made to look like a criminal investigation, and I have learned that it is perfectly fine for prosecutors and cops to lie to suspects in pursuit of a confession.
RUSH: I checked the email during the break. An interesting question: “Rush, you haven’t talked about the second indictments that have been handed down against Paul Manafort,” and I’m paraphrasing the email. The question basically is these things still have nothing to do with even the campaign. Everything Manafort’s being indicted for happened before the campaign, and then a letter writer very astutely mentioned that Mueller is changing the venue from Washington, D.C., to the Eastern District of Virginia, which is where Manafort lives.
….I think that Mueller is doing everything he can to pressure Manafort into saying that he either saw collusion or saw obstruction. Mueller needs a witness. To date, there has been no leak confirming any evidence of collusion exists because it didn’t happen.But if enough pressure can be applied as it was to Flynn, if enough pressure can be
… Manafort, with these two indictments, is facing the rest of his life in jail. These indictments now are serious. The first indictments were not swept away. They were added on to. But now we’ve got money laundering. Now we’ve got tax avoidance, multiple counts. Thirty-two counts, I think, in this latest indictment. And if he’s convicted on all of them, he can say good-bye to any quality of life ever. And this is pressure designed to get Manafort to say what Mueller wants to hear. “Rush! Rush, doesn’t what Manafort says have to be true?”
Well, you would think. But in something like this, believe me, it can be structured. I’m just trying to tell you that the objective here hasn’t changed. The objective is to get rid of Donald Trump. It has not changed and it will not change.
….The indictments against Manafort, he would spend the rest of his life in jail — and this is white-collar crime. It’s bank fraud, it’s tax fraud, it’s money laundering. It’s all kinds of really bad stuff for which sentencing guidelines, 32 different counts in this indictment, he could figuratively… I mean, literally spend the rest of his life in jail. That’s on one hand. On the other hand, here’s Mueller and his investigators saying (paraphrased), “But, you know, it doesn’t have to be that way, Paul.” It has to be always be “Paul.” It wouldn’t be “Mr. Manafort.”
They become friends, kind of like the Stockholm Syndrome with a kidnapping victim. “It doesn’t have to be this way, Paul. You just have to unburden yourself. You just have to tell us what you and I already know, Paul. You just have to confirm to us that the campaign was working with Russia. You just have to say it,” or alternatively, “Paul, you just have to tell us what you know about how the president was trying to shut us down, obstruct justice.” Mueller needs a witness, ’cause there isn’t any evidence.
“Of course there isn’t a prosecutor in the world that would take false evidence and try to pass it off as real!” I used to think that. I used to. I used to instinctively believe that. But I know that this is a political counterterrorism investigation that’s being made to look like a criminal investigation, and I have learned that it is perfectly fine for prosecutors and cops to lie to suspects in pursuit of a confession.
So they desperately want Trump, and they have who knows? Endless amounts of money and the full force power and pressure of the massive federal government behind them. And what’s telling is that there isn’t any evidence yet. There won’t be any real evidence ’cause Trump didn’t collude. That all happened on the Democrat side. That’s what nation doubly outrageous.

HUH! RUSH LIMBAUGH AND I SHARE PERFECT SOLUTION: ‘GRANT ILLEGALS PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIP – BUT THEY CAN’T VOTE FOR THE NEXT 25 YEARS’
RUSH LIMBAUGH TO CHRIS WALLACE ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION:
@rushlimbaugh on @FoxNewsSunday : “I would be willing right here to support an effort to grant permanent citizenship to whatever number of illegal immigrants there are in the country, tomorrow, if you will make as part of the deal they can’t vote for 15-25 years.” @FoxNewspic.twitter.com/25hQpkA7aZ

LIMBAUGH CALLS FOR CONCEALED-CARRY IN SCHOOLS:’WE HAVE ARMED SECURITY AT EVERY PUBLIC ENTITY EXCEPT SCHOOLS’
Rush Limbaugh joined Chris Wallace on FOX News Sunday today to discuss Florida school massacre, NRA and gun control hysteria.
“The solution is concealed-carry in schools. If we are really serious about protecting the kids, we need a mechanism to be defensive when this kind of thing happens…
We have armed security at virtually every public entity in this country except schools. For some reason they are gun free zones and everybody who wants to shoot up a school knows they are unarmed… Bashing the NRA isn’t going to do it.”
We’ve got to realize this is what our country has become. We can wish it weren’t this way and we can wish Congress could legislate it away. But they can’t. It’s not the fault of the NRA. It’s the fault of people doing thi
Via FOX News Sunday:
- Rush Limbaugh: It seems to me that this is a process crime/perjury trap, and if I were Trump’s lawyers, I wouldn’t let him get anywhere near this!
RUSH LIMBAUGH: I know a little bit more about the law because my dad was a lawyer and my cousins, uncles and stuff were judges.And I know a lot of big time, famous lawyers now. But I would not profess to be a legal expert.
It seems to me that this is a process crime/perjury trap, and if I were Trump’s lawyers, I wouldn’t let him get anywhere near this! In the first place, Trump improvises as he goes.
You know, if the interview is just with Trump and his lawyers in a relaxed setting with Mueller and his anti-Trump investigators, that’s one thing.
But if it’s a grand jury appearance which I don’t think it is yet. But if it’s a grand jury appearance, then Trump’s lawyers can’t go in there (snorts) and you tell one little lie in there and you are done. You’re under oath, and you have no assistance. You have no aides. You have nobody in there that can help you. You have nobody in there to tell the prosecute he can’t ask the question, ’cause the prosecutor owns the grand jury.
So, no, you don’t do that. If it’s just an interview… This may surprise some people. If it’s just… I say “relaxed.” If it’s just an interview in somebody’s office and you have Mueller and a couple of his investigators and Trump and his lawyer — even if the session is not formally under oath, they can still circle back and get you for lying to them, if they think that you have. Even though it isn’t under oath. If you agree to this kind of a sit down.
So Mueller wants to ask Trump why he fired Comey and why he fired Flynn. You can see what kind of trap this is. Trump doesn’t owe anybody an explanation on this. But there are still people who think that they can force one out of him. I would also reject the offer, if it’s made — which I don’t think it would be. But there’s a possibility that Trump’s lawyers could say, “You know, we’ll do this, but we want it in writing. You submit your questions in writing, and then we’ll answer them in writing.”
