RUSH: Here is Steve in Westchester in New York. Great to have you, sir. How are you?
CALLER: I’m doing good, Maha Rushie. Thank you for taking this call from this rank amateur.
RUSH: Ah, ah, ah, ah! Lovable.
RUSH: Lovable rank amateur.
CALLER: (chuckles) My comment is with this incident that we found on with Hillary the other day, about her e-mails, maybe her server being hacked by other nations, and I was wondering if they — if along the course, when they did that they also got some of your private e-mail that she may be denying some. So I’m wondering if someone should offer a reward for getting some of those e-mails back.
RUSH: You really want to see ’em, don’t you? (laughing) You would love to see Hillary’s e-mails, and somebody — not you, of course, but somebody — should offer a reward for them.
CALLER: Yes. You know, five or 10 of ’em. We don’t have to get all of them. Just enough to get a gist of what’s going on from a few of ’em.
RUSH: Well, I tell you, it is an interesting subject, and the area of interest I’ve been able to ascertain for most people is all of these solicitations for donations to the foundation, the Bill-Hillary-Chelsea foundation, while she’s secretary of state, and who gave money and what’d they expect for it. That’s gonna be the focus of a lot of attention. I’m beginning to sense that this is all starting to take its toll on Mrs. Clinton and her prospects within the Democrat Party.
I don’t think she’s ever been unanimous choice of all the Democrats. We know that she wasn’t in 2008, even though that’s what they tried to do make us think, that she was. But, I mean, what’ll happen if you succeed in getting somebody to offer a reward to anybody that’s hacked Hillary’s e-mails so that you can see what’s in them? Hillary will just counter that by promising somebody something if they’ll donate even more money to keep them private and hidden, and start a bidding war with the Clintons on the receiving end of it.
But since you brought up the subject of Mrs. Clinton, yesterday in Atlantic City, New Jersey, at the Tri-State Camp Conference… This was Mrs. Clinton’s last paid speech, theoretically, before she announces her candidacy, and one of the reasons she put off her announcement ’til now was because her schedule was filled with these paid speeches, and yesterday was maybe her last paid speech was at the Tri-State Camp Conference. What what what is the Tri-State Camp Conference? Anybody know what that is? Well, it’s a special interest group that does camps for kids and others, summer camps, recreation camps, you name it.
She went as the featured speaker, and here are a couple of excerpts from her remarkable speech to the 2015 Tri-State Camp Conference.
HILLARY: As I have gotten older, I have decided we really need camps for adults, and we need the kind of camps that you all run. We have a huge fun deficit in America, and we need to figure out how to fill that fun deficit — certainly for our kids, but also for the rest of us.
RUSH: Seriously? (laughing) How many times have I asked that today? Are you kidding me? So she’s speaking to some camp conference and decides to pander to ’em by telling ’em what we need is a camp for adults; that we’ve got a fun deficit in America? How can that be? I thought Obama had everybody feeling so good! The economy is roaring back; everybody’s got newfound confidence and vim and vigor out there. What do you mean, there’s a fun deficit?
You gotta be very careful. When the Clintons start talking about camps for adults, you need to be thinking reeducation camps. You need to be thinking of the kind of things the ChiComs do to dissidents. Adult camps? No doubt she’s pandering to this bunch at the Tri-State Camp Conference. Then she described how her camp would bring people of different political views together — which, obviously, would really ramp up the fun deficit.
I mean does she think this…? She’ll bring Republicans and Democrats into an adult ramp for the purposes of filling the fun vacuum. (interruption) Well, what could we learn from the Bill Clinton camp? (laughing) The Bill Clinton camp? Just open the Library and Massage Parlor in Arkansas, and you’ve got the Clinton camp, Bill Clinton camp. Here’s Hillary.
HILLARY: We’re much less racist, sexist, homophobic, all of those things. But we sure don’t want to spend time with anybody who we disagree with politically.
AUDIENCE: (barely audible laughter)
HILLARY: I mean, that is just too stressful. So, you know, maybe mix it up a little bit. You know, you can have the red cabin, the blue cabin, have to come together and actually listen to each other. Wouldn’t that be a novel idea!
RUSH: This is the presumptive Democrat nominee? This? “Yeah, we could have the blue camp and we have the red camp! Cabin. Cabin.” You know, these camps already exist, and they’re very elitist, like the Bohemians have one, the Bohemian Grove. They’ve got those camps and I guarantee you none of them are gonna go to a Clinton camp unless they are dragged there this chains. But this is your presumptive Democrat nominee pandering to some group that does camps as their business.
Camille Paglia, noted art critic, academic, well-known commentator on the human condition was interviewed on Reason TV, a video blog, the to her in chief Nick Gillespie asking the questions, and he asked her point-blank, “What is it about Hillary Clinton that bothers you, Ms. Paglia?”
PAGLIA: She’s a fraud! Hillary is a mess, okay? We’re going to reward with the presidency a woman who has enabled the depredations and the exploitation of women, okay, by that corn pone husband of hers, and the way feminists have made us blind, okay, to Hillary’s record of trashing, then gonna try to destroy Monica Lewinsky. It’s a scandal. Anyone who their in sexual harassment guidelines, okay, should have seen that the disparity of power between Clinton and Monica Lewinsky was one of the most grotesque ever in the history of sex crime! He’s a sex criminal, and we’re gonna put that guy back in the White House? Hillary has ridden on his coattails.
PAGLIA: This is not a woman who made her own career. She’s a woman who failed the bar exam in Washington.
RUSH: And there you have one of the many reasons why we so admire Camille Paglia. She’s a liberal. She’s a classic, classicist liberal in the classic liberal sense of the word. But she’s right on the money. “This isn’t a woman who has made her own career.” It’s exactly what I’ve always said. She decided to hitch her wagon to this guy when they were both at Yale and follow him everywhere — and wherever he ended up, take over.
Be it in Arkansas, be it at the White House, be it wherever. The reason that Mrs. Clinton has this sense of entitlement, if you will, by the Democrat Party is that she knowingly sacrificed her life in order for Bill Clinton to have his career, and all of this talk of Hillary for president is literally and really nothing more than payback for that. Because if she had not stood by him during all of his scandals, he wouldn’t have remained in the White House.
He wouldn’t now being the biggest star of the Democrat Party, and they wouldn’t have had all those victories over conservatives and Republicans in the nineties. But she hung in there, she gave up everything, and she moved to Arkansas. I still maintain that when you’re talking about liberal elites in the New York-Washington-Boston Corridor, the fact that Hillary Clinton — who could have been the smartest woman in the world even back then and he could have named her price at any law firm.
She could have done anything, and instead she moved to Arkansas?
Folks, you don’t know what the people in the New York-Washington-Boston Corridor think of Arkansas. That’s one of the biggest human sacrifices they can imagine any woman ever to have made, to actually go to Arkansas. She’s due whatever she can get for that alone. She went there and she did everything she could in the face of public disrespect with all of her husband’s finagling and shenanigans and so forth. But Camille Paglia is right. She has no career of her own, and you just don’t find too many people in academia — which is where Camille Paglia is — speaking of the Clintons in that way any way, shape, manner, or form anywhere.
RUSH: Now, I wasn’t wrong about why Mrs. Clinton went to Arkansas, but there’s another reason, and Camille Paglia pointed it out. Did you hear her say that Hillary couldn’t even pass the bar exam in Washington? It was after that that she married Bill. That’s the main reason she married Clinton and moved to Arkansas, ’cause the world was her oyster. You don’t know this, but back in those days, Mrs. Clinton had her own reputation at Wellesley. She had been on the Watergate Committee before they threw her off ’cause she wanted to deny Nixon a lawyer.
She was a radical back then.
She’d written her be doctoral thesis or some thesis, term paper, whatever it was, on Saul Alinsky.
So she was well known and she couldn’t pass the DC bar exam, and that was… Oh, that shocked everybody! She was the smartest woman in the world even back then. So Plan B: Marry the hayseed — marry the “corn pone,” as Camille Paglia said — and swallow the bitter pill of moving to where they shot some of Deliverance. And that was the price.
So she did that. She stayed loyal. And the presidency and being given Hillarycare, during Clinton’s term, that was all payback for that kind of loyalty.
