RUSH: Which means (if you take this guy all the way out to his logic conclusion), the Syrian refugees are gonna kill all of us after sitting down and having dinner with us. And they're gonna take everything we've got and they're gonna mass march all over the country, commit genocide, and establish this nation as Syria West.
RUSH: Basically what it was about was Obama telling everybody: Don't sweat it. We got 65 nations. We're going after ISIS. We're kicking ISIS all over the planet. There's no way ISIS could get into the country. We're doing everything we can to stop ISIS attacks. I don't want you to worry about any domestic terror attacks happening here. We're gonna do everything we can to stop them. We're gonna go out there, we're gonna go get ISIS. He calls 'em ISIL. But, anyway, don't sweat it because we got it under control here. Go ahead and have Thanksgiving.
RUSH: Headline: "Rush Limbaugh Is a Hypocrite When it Comes to Trump." And it's written by a young Rush fan. What I said about Ted Cruz has ended up on a major fundraising appeal that the Cruz campaign has sent out. And in it they say that I, your host, El Rushbo, made a major move to Cruz on Fox News Sunday. But I haven't endorsed Cruz, either. I haven't endorsed anybody.
CALLER: I want to get away from all the doom and gloom going on in the country, try something positive, the holidays coming. I just wanted your opinion on how the Carolina Panthers are doing this year.
RUSH: Right now, Governor Kasich, or any of the rest of you, right now Americans don't feel safe. Right now. Right now Americans don't feel safe. Not economically, they don't feel safe from a national security standpoint. And there's one guy in the campaign who is talking as though he understands that and intends to do something about it. There's one guy in this entire campaign consistently, thematically talking about making this country great again, which would include making it safe again.
RUSH: You guys watch Fargo, the TV show Fargo? I mean, it's one of these low rent, guttural, you wouldn't want to ever live anywhere, but you can't stop watching it. Just a great cover. Remember the old Kenny Rogers tune (singing), "I just dropped in to see what condition my condition..."? Well, they had a theme song last night by some group called White Denim covering it, and I can't get that song out of my head.
RUSH: There's a misnomer for cigar smokers that goes like this. Start the day mild and then build up to your favorite, most powerful packed cigar at the end of the day after dinner, and that's BS.
RUSH: It's so much fun to do this, folks, I can't describe it. Especially with the feedback that we get here, it's just great.
RUSH: "Thanksgiving is actually explained in some textbooks as a holiday for which the Pilgrims gave thanks to the Indians for saving their lives, rather than as a devout expression of gratitude grounded in the tradition of both the Old and New Testaments." The Bible. The original Thanksgiving was a thanks to God. It was not a thanks to the Indians. This is not to disparage the Indians or the Native Americans. The Pilgrims did not. But it was not a thanks to the Indians for saving the Pilgrims. The Pilgrims thanked God. But it's more detailed than this.
RUSH: I say this in jocularity and with good will. No anger. We got scammed. Well, the original settlers got scammed. Not us, of course.
RUSH: Trump Derangement Syndrome is everywhere. It literally is everywhere. Well, we're not deranged here because we don't get deranged about anything, but, I mean, the Drive-Bys, the Democrats, many in the Republican Party are just beside themselves now. They don't know what to do.
RUSH: So you have Turkey shoots down a Russian jet, and you look at one place, you look at a hundred places and they say, "This is exactly how World War I started. Oh, my God! Oh, my God! World War I! Oh, no!" And it becomes universal. And it may be.
RUSH: Now, here comes the president of France, arriving here desperately looking for assistance, advice, help, whatever, looking for some muscle in fighting ISIS because of what ISIS did in France and continues to do, and thought that the best way to go about it was to publicly praise Obama's commitment to climate change
RUSH: What is it that they so fear? What is it do you think that explains it? This is irrational. You can have any number of candidates come along over the years that they disagree with and don't like, like a Pat Buchanan or a Ron Paul, I mean, name 'em, and they never, ever lose their heads like this. But they're literally going nuts.
RUSH: Thomas Jefferson was writing all kinds of letters from France to the Constitutional Convention, and they were sending him letters, and so he was participating in the writing of the Constitution while he was in France with these things called letters that were put on boats that went over the ocean and then to horses in saddlebags where they were delivered to the recipients.
RUSH: If the Regime in its travel alert and its "be very afraid" message warns of possible terror attacks within the US, then people would responsibly stand up and say, "Well, why are you importing all these refugees among whom could be some terrorists that you're warning us about?" But since they don't mention that, then we're not supposed to object to the ongoing refugee importation that's going on.
RUSH: Is this a ploy by the Regime to label gun owners as terrorists to set up the ability to take guns away from Americans by simply calling them terrorists, domestic terrorists? But the other thing here, this is a glaring admission that the vetting process of immigrants and refugees is a sham.
RUSH: The Limbaugh Theorem was developed, devised by a frustrated radio host named Rush Limbaugh to try to explain why it is that Barack Obama is never held accountable for all of the mistakes that he makes. Be it bad policy, be it bad legislation, be it, whatever. People that vote for Barack Obama do not blame him.
RUSH: I want to give you an in-depth answer to your question. You deserve that. You're a new listener and you called, and I have a much more in-depth answer that I now have time to give you.
RUSH: The minute I got to Ted Cruz, they cut out of it and went to a breaking news alert update, breaking news on Brussels. So all these people that wanted to hear what I said about Ted Cruz didn't get to hear it. And, by the time Fox rejoined, it was near the end of the interview where I was talking about the latest book, Rush Revere and the Star-Spangled Banner.
RUSH: Right there it is in the AP: "Accelerating its attacks on one of the Islamic State's most important sources of income, the US military said Monday it destroyed 283 tanker trucks."
RUSH: I remember saying on Monday that if Trump doubles down on terrorism like he is on immigration, then nobody's gonna be able to touch him. Latest ABC News/Washington Post poll: Trump leads among most demographic groups.
RUSH: The Democrats and the left are just hoping like anything that Trump's gonna embarrass himself and say something to cause people who are supporting him to abandon him. And they're applying their own sensitivities to this, meaning they would be profoundly embarrassed, and they would be terribly angry if any of them ever said what Trump said about Muslims. So they think everybody would react the way they do.
RUSH: Remember the news last week from the Pew Research Center claiming they had data saying that more Mexicans were leaving the country than arriving and that it was, therefore, nothing to worry about anymore?
RUSH: It's Facebook.com/RushRevere, and that's where you will see the video entries. We run a little contest for the young readers to send us videos for the books, and there are prizes we offer them.
RUSH: Barack Obama's No. 1 enemy is the Republican Party, and the conservative movement. You see he gets animated -- he does not need cue cards, he does not teleprompter -- when he starts ripping into them. But when you get ISIS on the board or anything in the Middle East, he's very cautious, very precise, very don't want to offend them, don't want to make them mad.
RUSH: The guy's not a sexist or a misogynist. It's just generational. When you hear this it will be perfectly understandable and clear what the poor guy was trying to say.
RUSH: I'm thankful I've still got this program and a chance to come here every day and illustrate the dishonest, the reprehensible, the just scummy way these people work. And each time I see something like this, I focus even more on, "They're not media!" This isn't the news. The media is all part of the left-wing establishment that's trying to advance the Democrat Party agenda.
RUSH: I'm up first, and then the rest of the show will be about what I said.
RUSH: So the Drive-By Media seizes on Donald Trump, makes up a story, makes it outlandish as a means 'cause they know Trump gets ratings. It's a perfect distraction from Obama's incompetence and Obama's highly dangerous actions that are placing this country at great risk and trying to say that Trump's some great enemy of freedom and liberty and so forth. It's how it happens.
RUSH: The Republican establishment is just at their wits' end. They thought Trump would be gone by now and they can't find anybody willing to help them because nobody thinks it can be done now.
CALLER: I would just like to hear from any of these Democratic leaders, the liberals, anybody, to explain to me, how, in such a liberal country as France that doesn't allow its law-abiding citizens to even own firearms, pistols, or rifles, or any kind of weapons of any kind, that such a tragedy could even happen.
RUSH: It's from the Washington Free Beacon: "US military pilots who have returned from the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq are confirming that they were blocked from dropping 75 percent of their ordnance on terror targets because they could not get clearance to launch a strike." This is according to congressman to Ed Royce (R., Calif.), chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. "Strikes against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) targets are often blocked due to an Obama administration policy to prevent civilian deaths and collateral damage."
RUSH: I interviewed Trey Gowdy for the Limbaugh Letter, seems like now a couple years ago. I have always believed -- and I told him so, by the way. And, by the way, I should tell you, you might not have picked this up reading the interview. But when it was over I had been so favorably impressed, and things I had seen him do in terms of the committee chairmanships that he had run and hearings he had run, and just his general public statements I'd been really impressed.
RUSH: There's nothing being proposed that we have not done in the past to defend and protect the country, particularly in times of attack or war.
RUSH: Something I want to direct you to is our Rush Revere Facebook page in and of itself. I keep hyping what is happening there. We're inviting young readers of the Rush Revere Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans book series, the fourth book is out now, Rush Revere and the Star-Spangled Banner. We have contests now and then for the kids to submit videos. They win prizes, and they are awarded first, second, third place, and so forth.
RUSH: "Study Finds More Mexicans Leaving the US Than Coming." Does that story sound familiar to you?
RUSH: Barbara Walters said, "If a man said this, I'd kill him, but maybe because she's so beautiful we don't expect her to be as smart as she is." Would Barbara Walters say that about any beautiful liberal babe? Would she assume that a liberal babe is a walking, talking idiot?
RUSH: When this news of the ISIS attack in Paris hit on Friday, Monday of this week was our first day, obviously, to discuss it. One of the things that I said early on in the discussion on Monday of the activities in France over the weekend, I said, you watch, this attack, there will be many results, many reactions to it. I said one of the things that's gonna happen is Trump is going to skyrocket in the polls. And he has. Now, that's not the news. The news is the Drive-Bys cannot believe it.
RUSH: People ask me all the time, "How do you stay optimistic?" It's because of things like this, you know, reaching out, reaching young people, having them participate in this, learning American history.
RUSH: The news about Hillary today is she's so offended at what comedians are saying about her at an LA comedy club, that her campaign has actually sought the names and contact data for the comedians that are cracking jokes about her... Don't be surprised if when a lot of Millennial supporters of Hillary hear this news they support her. Don't be surprised. I mean, you have to understand that's possible given the attack on free speech on college campuses all over the country.
RUSH: The United States is always a great nation at risk in a dangerous world, but it's a more precarious place we find ourselves now than I can ever recall because of the nature of our leadership, which is simply unwilling to accept reality. And people are starting to I think put two and two together and get four now.
RUSH: Andy McCarthy just published a... He's got an ongoing series of the jihadist fifth column, and this is what he's talking about: Islamic jihadists disguised as ordinary citizens and refugees who are already relocated, already in residence in these very places, in various places, including in the United States. And that a focus of interest needs to be increased in finding out who these people are, where they are, what they're doing... There is genuine concern, and it's not rooted in bigotry. It's not rooted in racism or xenophobia or any of that. It's rooted in safety and security and sovereignty, love of country.
RUSH: You do not accept any premise they put forward that puts you on defense.
CALLER: He scares me 'cause he's got guys like the caller just before me that thinks he walks on water.
