RUSH: Now, look. There’s a perfect example again. CNN, with a chyron graphic: “Conservatives blame Hillary email for Iran scientist’s death.” Conservatives blame. This is exactly what’s wrong. An Iranian scientist was killed by the Iranians, an American Iranian scientist was killed when Hillary Clinton, passing around secured emails on her unsecured server, happened to end up releasing his name.
Why is this only of importance to conservatives? A man is dead because Hillary Clinton’s email server was not secured and was hacked, and she’s passing around classified data. The director of the FBI has openly stated how what she did was wrong, how she lied about it to the American people, not to the FBI, but to the American people, she’s out there saying (imitating Hillary), “No, no, no, I heard what he said.” And now when she’s caught on that, “Well, I I I I had a –” What did she say she had? “A short-circuit, yeah, a short-circuit there, short-circuit. Chris Wallace and I were kind of talking past –” She lied. She’s lied about it; she lied about everything.
Have you, any of you, seen the movie 13 Hours? Oh, man, you’ve gotta watch that. Benghazi. It’s about what actually the hell happened in Benghazi. You will get mad at it. Michael Bay did it, and they make a point of saying this is not about the politics, it’s just about what happened. It’s about the men and women of Benghazi and what happened.
But they make it clear, they actually make reference in the movie that the attack in Benghazi could not have been because of a bunch of people getting mad over a video. It was a coordinated, highly coordinated military attack. It was not a leftist protest over a video. But when you watch that movie, what rings true is that everybody and their uncle at the annex in Benghazi and at the CIA station, there were two different locations, they were begging Washington for help. They were begging.
And none came.
And Washington was not even interested in helping out. The movie makes plain there were forces in Italy. It got so bad they requested just a fly by. “Look, if you won’t launch anything, just send a couple F-16s to fly over and put the fear of God in these people,” like happens at an NFL game, flyover at 200 feet on full after burner and let the roar of freedom scare these people. Wouldn’t even do that.
They were hung out to dry. And the movie makes it clear.
But yet to the Drive-By Media, only conservatives think there’s anything to see in Benghazi. And now only conservatives think there’s anything wrong about an Iranian scientist losing his life because his name showed up in Hillary Clinton’s emails back and forth on an unsecured server.
Why is it that only conservatives — is it meant to discredit the whole — yes, it is. ‘Cause when CNN puts a graphic up that says “conservatives say,” it’s meant to tell everybody else, “Crackpots and kooks are saying blah, blah,” is how CNN’s audience it supposed read it. Good God, folks. If the Democrat Party’s candidates can get away with killing people via their incompetence, if people die because of their incompetence or lack of caring, why isn’t that news?
I circle back to the New York Times piece that I quoted earlier from yesterday, where the media feels they have to destroy Trump because he poses such a great threat. He’s so unprepared. He’s unbalanced. We can’t let him near the nuclear codes, we just can’t. We’ve never been in this position, the media, we’ve never been in a position of actual opposition journalism, they say. It’s the most incredible thing.
RUSH: This is Dave in Colorado Springs. Greetings, sir. Great to have you with us.
CALLER: Oh, Rush, what a great honor.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: You are such a great American.
RUSH: Well, I appreciate that.
CALLER: Thank you for all you do.
RUSH: I wish it was more.
CALLER: Oh. No. I’ll tell you, in these times, it’s crazy out there, and you bring sanity and reason and truth, which we are sorely lacking. And that’s really my point. You know, I agree with all your stuff on the polls, on the variability in timing and all that kind of stuff, but I think we’re losing focus on the release of the WikiLeaks emails. Those emails showed conclusively, without any doubt, that there was collusion between the media and the DNC. And it was so bad that “Blabbermouth” Schultz had to step down the first day of the convention. That’s gigantic. And, you know, it’s kind of gone away from the news cycle. So, you know, my point is I don’t think we can trust the media. I know we can’t trust the media, ABC, CBS, NBC —
RUSH: Nope, you can’t.
CALLER: — et cetera.
RUSH: By their own admission we can’t trust ’em. They’re telling us they’re out to destroy one of the candidates.
RUSH: And it ain’t Hillary.
CALLER: I think their reporting on the polls shows that.
RUSH: Yeah. Well, the DNC leak, Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz being fired and leaving is what took that story away. I mean, she was the focal point of the story. She ran the DNC. She’s the one that rigged the whole game for Hillary. But I’m gonna tell you, folks, again, that rig took place in 2008. Without getting into it in great, lengthy detail, 2008 was supposed to be the Democrat Party’s payoff to Hillary Clinton for all she had done to keep them viable while Bill Clinton was out messing everything up. Their marriage, threatening the strength of the party and all that. She, not only hanging in there with him, but trying to blame conservatives for his philandering and so forth, they owed her.
They owed her big time, and they pulled the rug out from under her when a younger black guy came along that they liked better. And I guarantee you, when that happened, for the sake of party unity down the road, they couldn’t have the Clintons bolting the party after that. They guaranteed her this year. And the evidence was in the schedule. Look, nobody ran against her. When Bernie Sanders ran, everybody laughed. Oh, my God, this aging socialist, nobody gave him any kind of a chance. Martin O’Malley and Jim Webb. I mean, nobody even ran.
They have a weak bench, but they have stronger people than that. The game was rigged. And then Bernie upset everything by demonstrating the Democrat Party’s even more wacko radical left than they wanted to admit. So they had to rig the game against Bernie, and they did it in any number of ways, and the emails documented it. The lesson ought to be that the party cheats and that the media’s in on it. You’re right, but of course that’s been swept away and will continue to be.
RUSH: Here is Christine in Westchester. Great to have you on the program. Hi.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. Thanks for taking my call.
RUSH: Yes, ma’am.
CALLER: I’ve listen to you every day for probably the last ten years. You’re informative and entertaining at the same time.
RUSH: I appreciate that. Thank you. How far do you live from Winged Foot?
CALLER: About 15 minutes.
RUSH: Not bad.
CALLER: Not bad. But I’m a little bit closer to Hillary Clinton, so what can you do?
CALLER: Very close. To that point, one of the things… I mean, we’ve all been aware for a very long time how media has had their biases.
CALLER: But it’s come to the point that even I’m incredulous as I’m listening to some of the, quote/unquote, “polling questions.” One that really gets me, Rush, is the one about trust. What are Trump’s trust numbers versus Clinton’s trust numbers?
RUSH: It’s 49 to 40. “Who do you think is the most honest and trustworthy, Clinton or Trump?” Clinton 49, Trump 40.
CALLER: I don’t even know how you even put them in the same category for that question. This is a woman with a track record where you can go from A to Z where she’s not trustworthy. This man’s never held public office. I don’t even know how you could ask that question.
RUSH: How about this in another poll that’s out there just released today: “Overall do you have a favorable or unfavorable impression of Melania Trump?”
CALLER: Well, I mean, that’s another one. Why don’t they ask the same question about Chelsea?
RUSH: What does anybody know? What does anybody know about her? I get your point. I really do.
CALLER: That’s my point. That’s my point. And I don’t know at what point are Americans going to stop and just say, “Wait a minute. There’s something about that.”
RUSH: Look —
CALLER: To your point of the question about the conservatives, how conservatives feel about —
CALLER: Well, that’s the issue —
RUSH: We are divided. We are truly a divided country, and the media’s on the other team. And we’re gonna find out… We’re gonna find out who outnumbers who in November. That’s what really this is all about.
