RUSH: There are a couple of stories here that, in the old days we would do these and have a great yuk and a great laugh about them, thinking everybody else would also find them funny and laughable, not realizing that a decent size of the population would be identifying with the subject matter and angered by it or in support of it.  So we haven't stopped reporting this kind of stuff, but I have changed my attitude about it, realizing now that a decent number of people who hear it are going to not think it's funny, that they're either gonna agree with it or think it's very serious.

RUSH: Christiane Amanpour was supposedly interviewing Daniel Hannan. He's the very conservative -- we love the guy -- member of the Parliament in Great Britain, and she was interviewing him about the Brexit vote and it was not an interview. It was an allegation. She was actually a prosecutor, he was a witness, and she was trying to put him in jail. It was the most incredible thing. 

RUSH: There's a strategy, and that is that the European Union does not take losing lying down, just like the Democrat Party and the left here don't.  In fact, I'm not gonna get into it in detail right now, but I want you to be thinking about something.  I want you to fast forward to November. Knowing everything you know now, using intelligence guided by experience, I want you to fast forward to November to Trump winning the presidency in November.  I want you to think, using your intelligence guided by experience, what's gonna happen that night?  What's gonna happen the next day?  What's going to happen every day thereafter?  What's gonna happen the day Trump gets inaugurated?  What is the left gonna do?  They're not gonna just sit idly by and accept this and say, "Good fight.  We gave it everything we had, but we lost."  They're gonna do everything they can to undermine it. And I think we're gonna see levels of violence that we have not seen.

RUSH: We are supposed to believe here that Bill Clinton, a 70-year-old man with a history of heart trouble played golf in Phoenix where it was 108, 110 degrees, maybe he played on Sunday when it was 108, I don't know.  And then he's on the way to the airport to leave, is told that Loretta Lynch, the attorney general, is soon due to arrive, delays his departure, goes to a vacant private jet on the tarmac where she happens to be.  He delays his departure to go have the meeting at which they discuss their grandchildren and their travels... That just doesn't work for me.  Let me propose an alternative... 

RUSH: Right here it is, the very question I asked, attempting to stimulate a fire and cause chaos out there. Now they're actually asking it! I guarantee you this comes from that program.  I guarantee you.  What this is, is a science column where they answer questions written in by readers.  The headline exactly:  "Dear Science:  Why Aren't Apes Evolving into Humans?" You know what the answer is, by the way? Quick answer: Dear so-and-so... "We are apes."

RUSH: If all of this stress resulting from interpersonal and structural discrimination is leading to an unfair share of alcoholism, heavy cigarette use, and generally impaired physical and mental health, don't you think that investigators will find ways to scientifically, quote, unquote, blame all of this on the hate-filled, racist, sexist, bigoted, and homophobic Republican Party? 

RUSH:  He's back now predicting Hillary Clinton has a 79% chance of winning the presidency, compared to Trump's 20%.  Now, Silver still has a lot of acolytes out there.  He still has a lot of true believers.  And they're applauding and they're partying and they're ecstatic, but they are forgetting something crucial.  Nate Silver has been wrong about Donald Trump predictions seven times since last June.

RUSH: How did this happen, folks?  The stock market came back, futures are up 100 points, sky isn't falling, wizards of smart said that the world's financial markets were gonna go to hell all because of the Brexit vote.  Sounds familiar, doesn't it? Everything happens predictably except when the doom and gloom sets in, they want you to believe it's permanent and it's all over.  And, sadly, it works. 

RUSH: The Quinnipiac poll is out, and there's an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, and they're not telling you the meat in that poll.  I'm telling you: Aside from Hillary's lead in the NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, that's the only thing in that poll that is decent or good for her.  Everything else is a near-disaster.  F. Chuck Todd of NBC News realizes it and made reference to it.  The Quinnipiac poll has Trump and Hillary neck and neck, and the upshot of their poll is that nobody likes either of them.

RUSH: Trump thinks, by the way, that there is a Trump Effect in these polls, much like there is the Wilder Effect, meaning that there are people who do intend to vote for Trump who are not saying so when a pollster calls because they see the way the Drive-Bys treat Trump. They see the way the Drive-Bys react to Trump. They watch people make fun of Trump, this or that, and they don't want to be made fun of or laughed at so they don't tell the truth.  They either say they're not voting or they're voting for Hillary or whatever, but Trump believes he's got a lot more support out there.  And, I must tell you, folks, we were the first to note this possibility right here on the EIB Network.  

RUSH: The Drive-Bys have to tell us, they have to let us know how cosmopolitan they are. They have to share with us the worldliness that they bring to their jobs.  In so doing, they convey how they and they alone are qualified to analyze these events that happened across the globe, whereas you and I, mere plebes, haven't the slightest idea. And part and parcel of being able to explain what's going on in a way that you never could, is having been to Ataturk Airport in Istanbul... Plus, Istanbul, let's all be honest about something, Istanbul is exotic in and of itself because of James Bond movies. Istanbul is a central location for practically every international spy movie or book that's ever been done.
