Now, that tells me something, and it scares the hell out of me, that we’re going to sit around and we’re going to wait to be attacked, but by God, when we’re attacked, we’re going to call the UN and then we’re going to kick ass! Well, what are we going to do to
Watching what, folks? This is a serious plan? and I’ll tell you something else. It is becoming more and more obvious by the
The New York Times blew the cover of a CIA agent or not an agent, but somebody who had been corrupted and co-opted by the good guys, and this Al-Qaeda agent, this computer whiz, this hacker, was conducting a huge sting operation, trying to lure all of his allies in, and the operation’s blown, and that’s why everybody moved in fast, the Brits and everybody, to arrest these guys. It was sooner than they wanted to do it, and it is from that sting operation that all this data that last Sunday, a week ago yesterday was finally disseminated and the threat level went up and Howard Dean and a lot of Democrats, “This is purely political.” Well, the fact of the matter is this threat is
This is just, just stunning. Well, the press
They get away with writing history about Gorbachev bringing down the Soviet Union on his own, or the economy, or events outside Reagan’s control yet they fought. They fought the efforts to get rid of the Soviet Union every step of the way just as now they appear to be fighting and opposing our effort against terrorism every step of the way while claiming otherwise, and coming up with sound bite pansy little worthless proposals to deal with it like changing the color-coded warning system or Neighborhood Watch groups. You know, it just boggles my mind to watch all this unfold before our very eyes, because this threat, folks, make no mistake about it, has not gone away. Just because there hasn’t been an attack on this country since doesn’t mean that. There may be some good work being done but, you know, it’s tough to tell our good stories — other than when the New York Times blows the cover of a guy conducting a sting operation.
RUSH: Here is Donna in Cleveland. Nice to have you on the program, Donna. Welcome to the EIB Network.
CALLER: Hello, Rush, it’s an honor to talk to you.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I just was calling because, you know, I think either the first or I think the second day after Edwards was picked, of course, Kerry and Edwards showed up in Cleveland, flanked by our mayor, Jane Campbell and I am a Block Watch captain in Cleveland and Cleveland has recently experienced significant layoffs of its safety forces. I live right in Cleveland. I used to work for the city, so I bought a house in the city, and I’m still there, and through the years we’ve had an ongoing drug trafficking problem near my home, so my neighbors and I have banded together and we’ve tried to create as cohesive a Block Watch group as possible.
RUSH: Oh, so that’s what — you’re a Neighborhood Watch captain?
CALLER: I am. I am guilty. So I just wanted to let you know one of the ways that our mayor, Jane Campbell thinks is a good way to deal with drug dealers in the neighborhood: A, laying off police officers and safety forces, but if you have drug dealers who park in front of your house for any length of time —
RUSH: Ma’am, we’re talking about — okay, go ahead. Go ahead and finish the story.
CALLER: — turn on the sprinkler. You turn on the sprinkler and then they’ll move along, because if you call the police department, with the layoffs, the response time is ridiculous, because the trafficking is low. So what I’m saying is, is that John Kerry’s approach, it’s not new. It’s not new.
RUSH: My point is that John Kerry’s approach to the war on terror is fatuous. Drug dealers are one thing, but we’re supposed to scout out terrorists that are going to blow up a building and report them to somebody. With the way the liberals think, if you notice anything about anybody that by virtue of their appearance that would ID them as a terrorist, you’re guilty of bigotry. I just don’t understand it. It’s silly. Now, I can understand for neighborhood crime having what you do these groups are functional and good, but this is just sophistry. It’s absolute sophistry to have this as a central theme of fighting the war on terror. Neighborhood Watch group to watch the Citicorp building in Manhattan? The IMF? The World Bank? You know, we just learned that these guys want to hijack tourist helicopters and limousines. Okay, so the Neighborhood Watch group at the IMF sees limousines pulling into the IMF I’m sure all the time. What are you supposed to do, call the Kerry campaign? “I just saw a limousine show up!”
