Well, this didn’t go as planned. Last week, a meeting to decide if a Long Island, NY church would shelter some “unaccompanied minors” who illegally crossed our border was cancelled when outraged residents showed up to voice their opinions.
Rand Paul, Claire McCaskill Call for Police Demilitarization... Ferguson Police Chief Announces Porta Potties for Protestors... Obamacare and Immigration Coming Tomorrow...
RUSH: As often as I complain about the lack of professionalism and the overall horrible job I think the mainstream journalists do today, I do not nevertheless believe that any of this is called for, and I don't think this is the way to deal with them in any way, shape, manner, or form. But one thing... The disconnects that happen here, though, are just amazing. They're talking about a police state. When? Who's running things? Who's running Ferguson? Who's running the country? What kind of thinking is allowing this to happen? Who is it that believes in an all-powerful Big Government behaving in manners like this?
RUSH: The president's on the golf course. His third vacation this summer. So last night somebody issues a press release from the White House about the party, "A good time was had by all." It ends up being tweeted, and then amazingly, the White House announces the president's gonna have a press conference today.
CALLER: I am glad the police are doing what they're doing because they're protecting us people back in the neighborhoods. We're scared. All of my neighbors are scared.

You throw in every other societal aspect that results in our culture pending crumbling and rotting. It's a very slow process. It has taken years. This, I don't think, happened overnight. But you have a general frustration on the part of everybody that there doesn't seem to be any glue holding everything together.
RUSH: I'm telling you, I think the reason that she's distancing herself so decisively, so decidedly, and so soon is because she has an idea of how bad it could potentially get, and she doesn't want to be anywhere near it if something blows up. Because it's a little early for this wide a division between these two people to begin, just a little early.
RUSH: On Tuesday, I was describing Occupy Wall Street. I was explaining it, reminding people how it began, what it consisted of -- the people in it, what they hoped to achieve, their mindset, their worldview -- and all of that. It was to illustrate a point, and the point that I was making, which you will hear, was confirmed in a phone call to C-SPAN.
RUSH: It's not that they took things out of context. They just made things up, Michael. I mean, they took things out of context, but they just attributed things to me that I never said, which is happening more and more, and it's all started by Media Matters.
RUSH: I think Biden's not there 'cause I don't think anybody on Martha's Vineyard wants him there, and that's why Obama has to go back. He's gotta meet with Biden about something.
