WaPo Responds to Me, Tells Us Why Apes Aren't Evolving Into Humans

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."

You're Going to Be Hearing This Soon: Conservatives Make Gays Unhealthy

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? 

There's a High Probability Nate Silver Is Wrong Again About Donald Trump

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.

Brexit Doom and Gloom Was BS

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. 

The Polling Data Isn't Good for Hillary

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.

Donald Trump Believes in the Trump Effect -- and Waterboarding Terrorists

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.  

The Drive-Bys Want You to Know They've Been to Istanbul

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.

Truth vs. Narrative: Benghazi Exemplifies What Has Happened to Our Country

RUSH:  I thought I had adjusted to it, but I haven't.  It just makes me sick.  It depresses me.  It makes me sick all over again.  This Benghazi thing, it's so emblematic of what has happened to us as a country.  It is so enlightening as to what has happened to institutions that we need to be able to trust... To watch the media today after Gowdy and his committee went out there and they all made statements, announced the substance of their report, summary-wise, it was clear that the media is not interested in what's in the report, which doesn't surprise me.  I'm just telling you.  They don't care what's in the report.  They're characterizing the report in two ways.  They're saying, A, nothing new, and, B, Hillary had nothing to do with it.  The committee does not indict Hillary Clinton.  The committee does not lay blame at the feet of Hillary Clinton. 

Democrats Mention Donald Trump 23 Times in Their Benghazi Report

RUSH: The Democrats did not even participate in the official House committee investigation of Benghazi.  The Democrats didn't even show up. They have released their own report, and here's all you need to know about it: "A 339-page report released by Democrats on the House Select Committee on Benghazi mentions Donald Trump 23 times."  Donald Trump wasn't even on the public scene when Benghazi happened.  He might have been on TV commenting about it as an infrequent guest, but what did Trump have to do with Benghazi?  Nothing.  

How the McDonnell Case Helps Hillary

RUSH: How would you like to be the FBI seeing that the Supreme Court just vacated charges, all of them, against a governor, former governor?  You're trying to go after Hillary Clinton and you've been investigating her on this email business.

Hillary Clinton Is a Corrupt Security Risk -- And Half the Country Doesn't Care

RUSH: Security risk? Long ago established.  The fact that this doesn't bother half the country, that's always been my concern..  The media, in the founding days of the Constitution, the purpose of the media was to make sure that powerful government officials were held accountable.  It really was.  I mean, it was founders who hated the media like everybody else hates the media, but they understood the role they played.  This media long ago when it comes to Hillary Clinton/Bill Clinton and the Democrat Party? No, no, no, no.  They're the Democrat Party now. There is no media. 

Different Trump Delivers Prompter Speech in Pennsylvania

RUSH: I don't want anybody misunderstanding me on Trump and this prompter business. I'm just observing it's a different guy, but he finished this speech in typical Trump barnburner status, and he was not reading the prompter...  It was a great, great, great finale here in a state that he's gonna have to win, you would think.  

Brexit Shouldn't Have Been a Shock

RUSH: I'm struck by how it came as such a shock to everybody, and there are reasons why it came as such a shock.  I'm talking about people in Great Britain.  People in Europe, not so much here, but over there it came as a total shock. 

David Brooks Has a Thought

RUSH: David Brooks, our old buddy, the conservative columnist, New York Times.  He's had a realization. He maybe thinks that the elites may have overstepped on immigration just a little bit, maybe have brought in too many, maybe have brought in more people than should be here at the moment.

The Supreme Court Has Become a Rubber Stamp for the Democrat Agenda

RUSH: If I understand the Supreme Court decision today on abortion, I guess back-alley abortions weren't really a problem because all Texas did was try to enhance safety procedures for women who wanted to get abortions.  "No, no, no, no!" the left said. "You are not gonna put any limit whatsoever, even if it means popularizing the equivalent of back-alley abortions."  And I'm gonna tell you, folks, when it comes to abortion, yes, the substance of the issue matters. But beating us is just as motivating and just as important.  

Fauxcahontas Revs Up Democrats Like Hillary Never Can

RUSH: The presumptive Democrat nominee who, by the way, appeared at a campaign rally in Ohio today, and she had Fauxcahontas with her.  That would be the estimable Elizabeth Warren.  Did you watch it?  You didn't?  See, I couldn't help but watch it. It was on the monitors in here and I saw it, I said, "Should I turn on the sound or should I ignore this?"  I gotta do it.  I gotta turn on the sound.  What was overwhelmingly obvious was that Fauxcahontas was much more popular than Hillary is.  Ho-ho-ho.  It's not even close.  

The Ruling Class Won't Let Go Without a Fight

RUSH:  I want to go back and replay a somewhat lengthy portion of a monologue of mine.  You know, I've played sound bites of myself in the past, but rarely of such length because I think it's, in some cases, it's a cop-out.  In many cases just say it again.  But, in this case, I was quoting from a piece I'd found in the American Spectator by Professor Angelo Codevilla. It was called America's Ruling Class -- and the Perils of Revolution.  It was July 19th, 2010...I remember reading this piece and being so jazzed after I had read it. 

Analyzing the Trump News

RUSH: There are a couple of polls out.  One of them shows Trump back down double digits.  I think it's ABC News/Washington Post. Then there's another poll that shows Hillary only up one.  But wait. Before I get to the details, there's another polling story here...  

Brexit: A Revolt Against the Cronyism of the Elites -- and a Cry for Nationhood

RUSH: People imbued with common sense cannot understand why, either in Great Britain, or in  the United States, the people that run the show would want to leave the borders wide open and allow the nations to be flooded with people who are not going to end up advancing the nation... It's not racism. It's not sexism.  It's not bigotry.  All of the things that the elites and their media cohorts are gonna try to chalk this up to, it's not about any of that.  It's about a desire to be self-reliant because they just don't trust the people who claim to have all the answers and solutions for all the problems.  They don't trust the elites anymore. They don't trust the ruling class. The ruling class has made a mess of pretty much everything.

The Old Rules Don't Apply to Trump

RUSH: Trump happened to be in Scotland on the very day, the morning after the Brexit vote. He's there to open his golf course in Turnberry, and, lo and behold, the first thing he talked about was not the Brexit vote. He talked about his golf course and how damn good it is. He pointed to the lighthouse behind and said, "You know what? I've even built suites in the lighthouse. Nobody else has suites in lighthouses, but I have suites in the lighthouse." And the media says, "How in the world can you do this? You're here, you're in Great Britain, you're in the UK, and they just had the Brexit vote, and you're talking about your golf course?" Trump says, "Yeah, and you know what? The falling pound is even gonna help my business here." And they said, "You can't do that!"

The Islamification of Britain

RUSH: When I was making my first trips over to the UK, it was health care in this country, Clinton care or Hillarycare, that was what was dominating things. Immigration was not a back burner issue, but it certainly wasn't forefront like it is now. But it just began to look different. I couldn't pinpoint it, 'cause I wasn't looking for the differences. But what happened was that this massive influx of immigration, the Muslim or Islamic aspect of it, they set up their own neighborhoods. 

The Constitution Is on the Ballot

RUSH: The Constitution, as you know it and I know it, is now what's on the ballot in this presidential election in 2016. And of course the answer to this is not "Never Trump." The answer to this is "Never Hillary." The answer to this is "Never Tyranny." The answer to this is "Never Democrats." That's how perilously close we are here. We cannot afford a Hillary Clinton presidency because that's it. That's the end of the Constitution. 

How the Democrats Do It

RUSH: How they're characterizing this decision is gonna show up all over social media. And a bunch of ill-educated, uneducated Nimrods are gonna see it, and they've a totally skewed notion of what this decision means... Bill Nelson just said, the Florida Senator. He really went on TV and tried to convey that deportation proceedings of children are gonna be starting this afternoon, and it was just sad, just unfortunate, oh, my God, what kind of country are we.  It isn't the case... Immigration, as promoted by the Democrat Party, really is a voter registration drive, pure and simple. It is a desire by the Democrat Party to find another way to remain in perpetual power, by creating as many dependent voters as they can. 

Justice Kennedy: The State Has a Compelling Interest to Discriminate

RUSH: If, as this ruling says, there is a compelling interesting in maintaining racial quotas because of the interest we have in obtaining "the educational benefits that flow from student body diversity," it means that if there are other constitutional rights in conflict, they will always be considered irrelevant or secondary to the compelling interest. The compelling interest permits, if you will, in this case, discrimination against others and their rights, because the state has a compelling interest. Compelling interest. That means, "We have to do this at whatever cost. We have to do it!" And what do we have to do? We have to consider race in college admissions, not to equalize actual admissions.

The Country Would Accept Immigration Reform with a Focus on Assimilation

RUSH: If there were a focus on American greatness and American exceptionalism and bringing 11 or 12 million people who have been here illegally for a long time out of the shadows and actually assimilating them into a great America, you'd probably have more support for something like that than you might think.  You'd be surprised, I think, the number of people that would support bringing 'em out of the shadows. But as long as the whole purpose here is to register voters for the Democrat Party or to keep them on welfare programs or whatever cost Americans and put more budget strain, you're never gonna have support for it.
