RUSH: Now, the John Kerry quote: "...I was privileged to speak to the graduating class of Yale this year, and it was particularly a pleasure because it happened to turn out to be, literally -- I hate to say it -- 48 years to the day that I was privileged to speak as a graduating senior to my own class. ... I get always a little uptight when I hear politicians say how exceptional we are -- not because we're not exceptional, but because it's kind of in-your-face and a lot of other people are exceptional. A lot of other places do exceptional things."
Of course he does, because these people are laden with self-hatred and self-guilt over what they consider their good fortune to be.
RUSH: I got a lot of e-mail on this from angry, panicked people. Let me put you at ease. Contrary to rumors that Jay Carney will be the new chief of public relations for Apple, Inc., it isn't true. It isn't going to happen, and that's that.
RUSH: From Reuters, ladies and gentlemen: "A high-level female Yahoo Inc executive has been sued in California..." Are you aware of this? "A high-level female Yahoo Inc executive has been sued in California by a woman who worked under her and is accusing her former boss of sexual harassment and wrongful termination.
"Maria Zhang, a senior director of engineering at Yahoo Mobile, has been sued by Nan Shi, who worked as a principal software engineer in Yahoo from February 2013, according to a complaint filed on July 8 in Santa Clara Superior Court in San Jose, California. The complaint alleges that Zhang coerced Shi [the underling] to have oral and digital sex with her on multiple occasions in Sunnyvale, California, and told her she would have a 'bright future' at Yahoo if she had sex with Zhang."
Have you ever heard of "digital sex"?
Does that involve computers or fingers?
What is digital sex? Is it about computers? Is it...?
Okay, so it's fingers, not computers?
(interruption) Well, no, sexting, that's not... Well, it could be.
Anyway, the underling, Nan "Shi is seeking monetary as well as punitive damages. The lawsuit also names Yahoo as a defendant." So Shi's seeking a lot of money. I can't wait for the HBO movie about this.
Oh, you know there's going to be one. So you have female-on-female sexual harassment guaranteed to draw a huge male audience. Oh, yeah, because the guys are gonna want to watch. What is this digital sex? What are we missing here?
RUSH: The ranking member (meaning the highest ranking Republican) on the Democrat-dominated Senate Budget Committee is Jeff Sessions, Republican from Alabama -- and, I might add, a great man. Jeff Sessions has put it on paper. He "has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama's new immigration strategy -- his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power -- could destroy America as we know it.
"'I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,' Sessions, Congress's top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett..." By the way, the Major Garrett story is from July the 3rd.
Major Garrett reported in the National Journal "how, despite the ongoing crisis at the border, Obama plans to legalize anywhere from five to six million illegal alien adults in much the same way he did for illegal alien minors through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in summer 2012." That's the act that granted status to every illegal alien under 16 already in the country.
"'Obama made it clear he would press his executive powers to the limit,' Garrett wrote on July 3, as cited by Sessions. 'He gave quiet credence to recommendations from La Raza and other immigration groups that between 5 million to 6 million adult illegal immigrants could be spared deportation under a similar form of deferred adjudication he ordered for the so-called Dreamers in June 2012.'
"Sessions cites another paragraph from [Major Garrett's] piece as well, in which Garrett reported that President Obama has 'now ordered the Homeland Security and Justice departments to find executive authorities that could enlarge that non-prosecutorial umbrella by a factor of 10,'" meaning the number of illegals that could be granted status by a factor of 10.
Sessions' letter continues: "'Senior officials also tell me Obama wants to see what he can do with executive power to provide temporary legal status to undocumented adults,' Garrett wrote. 'And he will shift Immigration Control and Enforcement resources from the interior to the border to reduce deportations of those already here and to beef up defenses along the border.' ...
"Sessions' letter to colleagues comes as some in both Republican and Democratic circles consider various plans they say would fix the problem of the border crisis." Anyway, Sessions has sent a letter to all 535 members of Congress, saying that Obama's new immigration strategy could "destroy America as we know it" and "threatens the foundation of our constitutional republic."
I have this Major Garrett story from July 3rd, and Sessions is right. It does contain this by a factor of 10. I'm gonna get it during the break. I'll have it for you, the salient paragraph, 'cause it was really under the radar. I only became aware of this story yesterday, and it ran on July 3rd.
