California Schools Train Kids to Sell Obamacare
RUSH: Remember the Betsy McCaughey story about all the money in California for the exchanges, how it's actually gonna be used? The NAACP is getting 600 grand. The SEIU is getting $2 million. AFL-CIO is getting $1 million. Some group called Covered California, too. All these Democrat groups getting money from the so-called health exchange fund to basically engage in Democrat voter registration and Democrat get-out-the-vote efforts. 

"The Los Angeles Unified School District will use a state grant to train teens to promote Obamacare to family members." This is how Covered California is gonna use the money from the state exchange.  They're gonna go to the LA Unified School District and use a state grant from the exchange fund, $910 million, to train teenagers to go home and sell mom and dad on Obamacare. 

"Covered California, the state's health insurance exchange, announced grants of $37 million on May 14 to promote the nationally unpopular law." So yeah.  Essentially, they're using school kids as paid state agents. Well, the kids aren't gonna be paid.  (interruption) "Propagandists," right. Propagandists. They're little marching propagandists. They learn what they learn in the classroom; they head home and they sell mom and dad on supporting and believing in Obamacare. 

Money for that is coming from the money to set up the exchange in California.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH:  Apparently, folks, Hollywood movie stars, players from the National Football League and the NBA, are not enough to sell Obamacare.  Now California schools are gonna be training kids to sell Obamacare, using money from the exchanges. 

Liberal New York Women Prefer Weiner Over Lesbian Feminist
RUSH: You know what's going on in New York is somewhat fascinating.  This whole Anthony Weiner thing.  In fact, all of this that's happening here... Not just Anthony Weiner, but this George Zimmerman trial. No matter where we look, we see the designation of this country, no matter where we look.  We're seeing the crumbling, the literal tearing down of the foundations that have built this country and maintained it.

That is what's so unsettling to everybody, is that there doesn't seem to be anybody else concerned about it.  Now, what we're told is, "Now, you gotta get with it, Rush! The country's changing. It isn't the country it was when you grew up, and it's not the country it was 20 years ago, and you're gonna have to get with it, Rush. You're just gonna have to flow with the times! You're gonna have to change, Rush. You know, this is just how it is. You can't sit there and just continue to be an old fuddy!

"The country's changing and you gotta get with it." The fact is it is changing; there's no question. It always does.  But the things that constitute the change today are resulting in the breakdown of the backbone of the foundation, the guardrails, whatever the limits are that have always existed that would protect against disintegration and so forth.  It just seems to have broken down. Even the economy. 

You know, while all of this is going on -- all this immigration stuff (and that's big) and the Zimmerman trial (that's big), and the gay marriage -- the one thing that I think the vast majority of people in this country are concerned about is not even talked about anymore, not even addressed, and that's jobs! The economy, the pursuit of a career, the American dream, the attempt to provide for your family. 

I mean, that's the thing that I think is really on people's minds, and it's of hardly any consequence, it seems, or any interest anywhere else.  The job situation is terrible. One of the reasons for that is, even the people out of work are eating, and they're driving, and they're watching TV, and they're using cell phones.  Now apparently, if people get their way, we're gonna dump how many millions more people into this economy while we are undertaking new energy policies that are gonna do even further damage to the job market.

And it just doesn't seem that there is any -- I don't know what the word -- sympathy, concern for the people I've always judged to be those who make the country work.  So you sit here and you witness it and you watch it, and listen to people say when you express concern about, "Come on, Rush, get with it! The country's changing. It isn't the way it was when you were growing up."  That's, of course, true for everybody.  The country's always evolving and changing. 

But that's why there are standards: Decency, decorum, behavior.  But it is clear, there is an all-out war, and it's been going on for a long time.  I think it's just the idea that is now having a little bit more success than we would like, the all-out war against religion, the war against God. God, religion, the Bible, that is the source for morality.  That is the source for right and wrong, and that is the source material for much of the ethics or the ethic in this country.

And because it is so disliked and hated by a bunch of people who judge themselves not to fit into it, they just want to tear it down so that there is no judgmentalism; there is no perceived right and wrong; nobody has the right to determine what's good, decent, bad or forbidden. It's just, "Everything's okay. Whatever you want to do, fine and dandy! Have at it," which is all well and good except when you start demanding everybody else pay you for it. 

Now, here in New York, we've got Anthony Weiner who is running for mayor. One of his opponents is a woman named Christine Quinn.  I've got a story here from the New York Post, and she's pictured here as a bride in her 2012 wedding to her girlfriend, who is now her spouse.  This mayoral race in New York was once hers to lose.  In New York, you would think that Christine Quinn would be the hands-down favorite.

She is the quintessential liberal woman.  She's a lesbian and she's far left in her politics, and yet the people of New York are gonna reward Anthony Weiner! The women of New York are polling stronger for Anthony Weiner than they are for one of their own.  "The mayor's race -- once Christine Quinn's to lose -- has turned into a virtual dead heat among the top three contenders, according to a poll released today. 

"After leading the pack at 37% in February, Quinn has dropped steadily to 19% in the latest Quinnipiac University survey, with Anthony Weiner and Bill Thompson hot on her trail at 17% and 16%, respectively." I don't know.  To me it's humorous.  It's shocking that she is not the clear favorite of liberal women in New York, 'cause the policies aren't any different from any of these people, one to the next.

DOJ Defunds Youth Programs that Reference God
RUSH: One of the objectives the American left has is the elimination of God everywhere they can succeed in doing so. The incessant attacks on Christianity and the Catholic Church, no biblical references in school, no nativity scenes.

It's an ongoing thing, but it's a very risky thing to say because the arbiters political correctness rear their ugly heads and start throwing out labels like "racist" or "bigot" or what have you when you start raising these objections.  Well, here's a story from Todd Starnes at Fox News Radio.  "A Louisiana lawman is livid over the federal government's decision to cut off funds for two programs to help troubled young people, all, he says,  because he refused to sign a pledge to bar prayer or any mention of God at their meetings. 

"Julian Whittington, the sheriff of Bossier Parish, La., told Fox News the Department of Justice Office of Civil Rights defunded $30,000 for their Young Marines chapter as well as a youth diversion program.  Federal officials objected to a voluntary student-led prayer in the department's youth diversion program and an oath recited by the Young Marines that mentions God, according to Whittington, who blasted what he considers the government's  'aggression and infringement of our religious freedoms.'" 

Now, is there any doubt that this administration has launched an all-out war on religious freedom?  There isn't!  That's what the War on Women is really all about, and the War on Women that's being waged in this country is being waged by the Democrats and by Obama at institutions like the Catholic Church. They're forcing Catholic churches and universities to pass our contraception.

It's in violation of their religious beliefs, but they're mandating that it be done.  So what we have here is the Obama Department of Justice has taken away $30,000 from a youth program in Louisiana, because the sheriff who runs it refused to remove all mention of "God" from everything they do.  This is your money, folks. This is American taxpayer money that is being used to deny religious freedom.  It isn't just the IRS. 

Speaking of which, from the Washington Examiner: "Treasury: IRS Targeted 292 Tea Party Groups, Just 6 [Liberal] Groups -- Refuting Democratic suggestions that [liberal] groups were also swept up in the IRS probe of the tax status of Tea Party organizations, the Treasury Department's inspector general has revealed that just six progressive groups were targeted compared to 292 conservative groups." Now, stop and think about this. We talk about this and the words just roll off our tongues as though we're talking about turning on the faucet. 

"Oh, yeah, the IRS targeted conservative groups." That's not something insignificant or even casual.  That is gross malfeasance. That is a gross violation of government overreach.  Now the regime is using all of the money -- or a good percentage of it, anyway -- that's allocated to set up these health care exchanges as outreach for the Democrat Party. It's going to get-out-the-vote efforts and so forth, and I'm sure a part of that is its own degree of intimidation.

Fox Poll: 58% Want Obamacare Repealed
RUSH: Don't waste time giving thanks for health independence and honoring Obamacare.  In fact, what's the latest I've got on this? There's new polling data about this. More and more people now oppose Obamacare. Here it is: 66%. Fox News: "Record Number of Voters Want Obamacare Repealed Entirely -- Sizeable majorities say they are worried about their health care under the new law, and they expect their costs are gonna skyrocket.  Fifty-eight percent in the Fox poll now favor total repeal."  Fifty-eight percent! "Only 19% would leave it as it is.  A 62% majority of independents favor repealing at least some of it, but 66% are worried.  And here's Pelosi! Seriously. She's dead serious.  She wants you to stop and give thanks to Obamacare for "health independence" on the Fourth of July.

White House Hosts Radical Islamist
RUSH: Now, this is another thing that I don't understand why other people don't get it.  The White House is... Well, some people are being critical of the White House, the regime.  They had a meeting with the assistant to some really, really radical Islamic religious guy.  I mean, this guy has spoken out in favor of the genocide of the Jews. He's really just a reprehensible Sharia Islamist. This guy's not here, but one of the guys that works for him is here in a meeting in the White House. 

original

The guy is represented is here, but is banned from the United States.  So this guy is here in the White House and having meetings with people in the regime.  People are saying, "Why? Why?" What is so hard to understand about this, that the Obama administration would have meetings with radical Islamists?  Now, the announced reason is, "Well, Rush, this is outreach.  They're trying to meet with these radicalized guys and sort of deradicalize 'em. 

"They're meeting with these guys to show them that they have a friend in the White House, that we don't mean them any harm, and they don't need to hate us."  Really?  That's what's going on here?  That's why they're having these people into the White House?  Employees or assistants or whatever of radicals who are denied admittance into the country, get welcomed to the White House?  That's the kind of thing Republicans would do, call the enemy and say, "We aren't not so bad!"  I have a tough time accepting that explanation, but that's what they're saying it is. 

Obama Pushes Voted ID Program in Kenya
RUSH:  All right, now, this you won't believe.  Obama, as you know, is in Kenya. He is on a trip of Africa.  The Weekly Standard just released a little blurb, "White House Touts Kenyan Program to Obtain National ID Cards for Voter Registration."  In a nutshell, while Obama is vacationing in Africa, the White House put out a list of things they're doing for Africa, and one of the first items is a $53 million program in Kenya that helps young people obtain national ID cards, which is a prerequisite for voter registration.  I kid you not! The very same thing they oppose and fight here, they are bragging about helping become a reality in Kenya. 

Don't ask me to explain this 'cause I've only got two seconds. 

I have no seconds.
