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
Here’s my 2016 article:
FOR TRUMP: COMMON SENSE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION SOLUTION- BUILD THE WALL, NO CITIZENSHIP FOR 25-40 YEARS ( MEANS NO VOTING FOR THEM ), AND DEPORT ONLY CRIMINALS
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.”
RUSH LIMBAUGH: Steve Bannon has now earned a Trumpian nickname. When that happens to you, that’s not good. I mean, Crooked Hillary will always now forever be known as Crooked Hillary. To a certain extent, Lyin’ Ted, I mean, he’s always gonna have that moniker. And now Sloppy Steve.
…One of the things that I happened to mention yesterday was that everybody knows, or has known, that most of the leaking coming out of the White House had been Steve Bannon. You’d be stunned at the number of people who knew. Bannon was spending so much time with Maggie Haberman at the New York Times. He was spending a lot of time with people at The Politico. Everybody knew this, and I by no means was the only one saying it. (chuckling) But you wouldn’t know that if you’re watching Fox & Friends today because, apparently, I’m the only guy who’s made this public!
- Mike Flynn did not plead to guilty to scheme ( Russia collusion).
- Pleading guilty to the scheme proves the existence of a criminal conspiracy.
- He pleaded guilty to a process crime
- Robert Mueller does not have proof of a scheme
“Speculation of Flynn now cooperating with Mueller’s investigation stirred in recent days due to reports that Flynn had pulled out of a join defense agreement or common interest arrangement to share information with other subjects of the investigation,” said Limbaugh
“But there is nothing unusual about that. Once again, the lack of understanding by the drive-by media reporters — oh — Flynn’s pulling out of the joint agreement to share information, that means he’s getting ready to flip.”
“No, it meant he was getting ready to make a deal with the prosecutor, as such, it becomes unethical for the two lawyers or teams to communicate with each other when one of the people involved is going to cop a plea,” Limbaugh said.
“There was nothing unusual about this, and didn’t mean anything other than Flynn was getting close to make a deal,”
Limbaugh then expertly explains why Flynn’s guilty plea is nowhere near are damaging as the mainstream media would like people to believe.
“This is a key point now,” Limbaugh begins, “When the prosecutor, Mueller, has a cooperator, Flynn, who was an accomplice in a major criminal scheme — a cooperator, Flynn, is made to plead guilty to the scheme.”
“This is critical because pleading guilty to the scheme proves the existence of a criminal conspiracy.”
“And then,” Limbaugh added, “when the perp allocutes, like tells the judge what he did, the accomplice, Flynn, explains the scheme and the actions taken by himself and his co-conspirators to carry out the scheme.”
“This goes a long way to proving the case.”
“You have a perp pleading guilty to a scheme that he was part of and then explains the scheme and all the other people involved.”
Arriving to his main point, Limbaugh says “That’s not what happened here today!”
“Flynn did not plead guilty to a scheme!”
“He pleaded guilty to a process crime.”
“Mueller does not have proof of a scheme,” said Limbaugh.
Limbaugh concludes the segment by saying the Flynn’s plea ultimately shows Mueller have no proof of collusion between the Trump team and Russia.
On Friday, Michael Flynn plead guilty to lying to FBI agents about making contact with Russian Ambassador Kislyak during the transition period.
