A little over a week ago, when news broke that John Conyers, the 25-term Democrat congressman from Detroit, didn’t have enough legal signatures to get on the state’s primary ballot, I made a prediction.
RUSH: It's not a big deal in the big scheme of things, considering the other news items out there. I just wanted to let you know that yet another prediction made by your host came through within minutes of it being made.
RUSH: The kid in Santa Barbara, Isla Vista. Everything that has happened since is utterly predictable. Everybody on the left is taking another real human tragedy and converting it into a political issue, the purpose of which is to advance their political agenda, in this case: get rid of the Second Amendment and confiscate everybody's guns. And they're all out in unison.
RUSH: I think we're being set up or I think we're being prepared for a swap, ladies and gentlemen, when it comes to the kidnapped Nigerian girls by Boko Haram.
RUSH: We're being governed and led by a minority, which has the media on its side, which helps to create the impression that they're the majority. They are still in the midst of tactics, strategic tactics designed to overtake the country, hopefully with no resistance. The way they can do that -- secure no resistance -- is to guilt their opponents into basically letting them have what they want to have and do what they want to do, under the guise that this is only fair. The Republicans are falling for this hook, line, and sinker.
RUSH: Scooter Libby didn't do anything, but forget that. The media couldn't let go of it. It was so bad. It was life-threatening. It destroyed this woman's life and her marriage and her world, and oh, my God, it was horrible. And they let go the name of the station chief at Kabul and it's just an accident, not intentional, didn't mean anything by it, unfortunate, name got posted in a list that it wasn't supposed to, blah, blah, blah, blah. Sickening, this double standard that exists, because it's destructive.
RUSH: I'll tell you what I think some of this also shows, and I'm gonna get in trouble for this. But I'm gonna say I think it shows how desperate some people are to find their ideas and beliefs validated by Hollywood. I really do. On our side, I mean, on our side. Just like people hope one day the news media will see things our way. It isn't gonna happen.
RUSH: I find it fascinating that exactly what Obama accused private sector doctors of doing was happening in his own bureaucracy. I think when news of this hit, it was so bad, so below what had been normal... You know, the VA might have been bad in the past, but they didn't lie about massive numbers of deaths.
GRETA: Let me ask you about this scandal in Washington -- actually, it's around the nation -- with the VA health care system. How does this happen?
RUSH: Well, I think there have been problems in the VA that you could probably chronicle since the beginning of the VA, and the overriding problem is that this is something government just can't do.
