RUSH: Let’s stick with the email since that’s the next Stack here. “Clinton Camp Appeared to Have Contacts with DOJ on Email.” Okay, so, this is another point that Trump made, pointing out the corruption that exists. There is corruption. There is the DOJ, there’s the FBI, the Obama administration all coordinating with the Clinton campaign during the email investigation.
We had the IRS targeting Tea Party groups and denying them tax-exempt status and looking for other activity they can maybe label or charge as criminality. I mean, it is unprecedented. The Boston Globe editorial department admitting that they helped Hillary increase her presence in New England during a campaign stop. “An official within Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign appeared to have discussions with sources inside the Department of Justice (DOJ) about ongoing open records lawsuits regarding [her] emails, according to an email released on Tuesday.
“In an email from May 2015, Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said that ‘DOJ folks’ had ‘inform[ed]’ him about an upcoming status conference in one of the lawsuits regarding Clinton’s private email setup. … [T]he fact that Fallon — a former spokesman with the Justice Department — remained in contact with anyone from the department is likely to renew allegations that the Obama administration maintained an especially cozy relationship with Clinton’s presidential campaign.
“On Tuesday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said the connection was ‘unbelievable.’ The email ‘shows a level of collusion which calls into question the entire investigation into her private server,’ Trump spokesman Jason Miller said in a statement on Tuesday,” and he’s right. It does. The DOJ was guiding Hillary through this. You know, Hillary’s deleting 33,000 emails. There’s no criminal activity looking into it.
There’s nothing but protection. The FBI, the Department of Justice coordinating with the entire Hillary campaign to effectively shield them and to give them a heads-up as to where the investigation was going. In another WikiLeaks dump, “The Department of State provided a detailed readout of official email traffic it was about to release in response to Freedom of Information Act requests to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.”
So when the State Department was gonna reveal a bunch of emails that journalists and others had demanded, the Clinton campaign got a heads up before the release so that they could prepare a response to it! “The emails concerned speeches former President Bill Clinton gave abroad, and did not include any traffic from Hillary Clinton, according to new emails released by WikiLeaks. … The State Department advised that it is standard practice to share documents subject to FOIA requests with outside organizations, if those organizations have equities in the requested materials.”
It’s a bunch of mumbo jumbo to say, “Hey, this is nothing unusual. We always share information with targets when they’re of our party to protect them.” So Hillary was being given a heads-up on everything coming her way so they could prepare a response to it. Other things were being shielded and not being made public. It’s stunning the degree of corruption here.
Another WikiLeaks dump. “Elizabeth Warren –” Fauxcahontas “– Warned Hillary Not to Push Myth of Rosy Economy — Hillary Clinton’s campaign team was ready and willing to make promises about the direction of hires in a Clinton administration and to otherwise appease progressive hero Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, perhaps fearful she would endorse Clinton’s rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, in the presidential primary. The disclosure about a January 2015 meeting between the two camps was made after a third major drop on Tuesday by WikiLeaks.”
Elizabeth Warren was saying: If you keep lying about this economy, I am gonna go with Crazy Bernie. If you keep saying, if you keep pushing this myth of a rosy economy out there, I’m going with Crazy Bernie.
Now, the meaning of this is, they know the economy’s in the tank. They know the economy’s in the dumper. And during the Democrat primary, Elizabeth Warren didn’t want Hillary to get away with talking about how great it is, because as a Democrat running for reelection, or election in her case, and coming off eight years of the Obama administration, she can’t go out there and talk about how bad it is because that would then be blaming Obama. So Elizabeth Warren was warning her not to go overboard in praise ’cause it isn’t that good, and if you do, I’m signing up with the Bernie.
But to hear them publicly, “Why, this is the greatest economy. We got job creation out the wazoo. It’s never been better. Obama is the savior. It’s a recovery from the worst financial crisis since the Depression,” all these lies, every bit of it calculating coordinated lies with the media, with the Department of Justice, with the Department of State! And Hillary Clinton apparently so incompetent she has to be guided on when to smile and when not to, via teleprompter.
But, folks, I’m gonna tell you something on this WikiLeaks business. This is just a fraction of what’s out there. Don’t get stuck on any one thing, like John Podesta or Hillary’s staffers. I’m telling you, think bigger. Because what I’m reading is only what’s been hacked and what’s been released.
I think all of this is still the tip of the iceberg. It is the tip of the iceberg that has positioned itself to sink this country as founded. This whole WikiLeaks document dump is just the tip of the iceberg of the corruption and damage, the iceberg itself is the Democrat Party, the Obama administration, the Hillary campaign, and we’ve just seen the tip of it.
These emails demonstrate why Hillary Clinton created this private server, this illegal off-grid server. We now know why she did it, all of the corruption taking place openly, she didn’t want it ever known, she didn’t want it ever released. Americans are not supposed to know that the news and the candidate and the elections are scripted and rigged and coordinated. We’re not supposed to know this.
It’s all supposed to look natural and organic. It’s all supposed to look like everybody involved here is waking up every day not knowing what’s happening and seeing what happens and reporting it to you. And the people telling you what’s happening are the people making it happen. This is scripted and has been for I don’t know how long, the daily soap opera, the daily news narrative, whatever, is a script and it’s coordinated. And the only people left out of it are Republicans and conservatives.
And these WikiLeaked emails demonstrate why Hillary Clinton deleted 33,000. They demonstrate why Democrats have secret email accounts. They don’t email each other about how to better serve the American people. You haven’t seen that. You haven’t seen an email on climate change, either. Every one of these emails is essentially a traffic in deceit. All of these emails essentially show how the Democrats are trying to deceive everybody! Including us.
RUSH: More leaked emails. And this… I see this, and I boil. I just literally start boiling over, and I realize: It isn’t news! “A newly exposed email exchange shows Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, Clinton campaign communications director Jen Palmieri, and Center for American Progress fellow John Halpin,” mocking, making fun of, trashing “Catholicism [a]s ‘backwards.’
“Released by WikiLeaks as part of the alleged cache of ‘Podesta emails,’ the email chain, titled ‘Conservative Catholicism,’ begins with Halpin sending an email to Podesta and Palmieri chastising News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch and Wall Street Journal managing editor Robert Thomson for being Catholic. Halpin notes: ‘Ken Auletta’s latest piece on Murdoch in the New Yorker starts off with the aside that both Murdoch and Robert Thompson, managing editor of the WSJ, are raising their kids Catholic.
“‘Friggin’ Murdoch baptized his kids in Jordan where John the Baptist baptized Jesus. Many of the most powerful elements of the conservative movement are all Catholic … from the [Supreme Court] and think tanks to the media and social groups,'” and they’re spitting made over it! Now, substitute “Muslim” for “Catholic” in these emails and see what would happen. These people in the Hillary Clinton campaign emailing each other — mocking, trashing, making fun of — belittling people who are Catholic.
At the same time, they’re warning us, “There better not be any backlash or disrespect for the Muslim-American population! Some of the finest Americans are from our Muslim population!” These people routinely trash Catholicism and Christianity in general, and they freaking get away with it! Obamacare and that whole thing at Georgetown University by making religious institutions give out drugs that are going to further abortion, making the Catholics do it. That’s what these people do under the threat of removal of funds or other serious government oppression! Corruption out the wazoo! Damn right!
And nothing happens to them!
RUSH: Yeah, let’s make fun of Catholics. You know what they say about them? Yeah, they go on to say… The Clinton guy, Halperin, he’s one of the three quoted in the emails here. He goes on to call conservatives who are Catholic “an amazing bastardization of the faith.” Yeah, these conservatives that say they’re Catholic? They’re just choosing Catholicism because they know it would be horrible to become an evangelical. They must be attracted to Catholicism for its “severely backwards gender relations.”
So the Catholic Church to these schlubs is nothing more than a political organization that’s about 2,000 years behind the times. So to these people in the Clinton campaign, the Catholic Church is nothing more than a political organization that needs to get with it and needs to understand gay marriage and needs to understand whatever marriage anybody wants as long as they’re consenting. It needs to understand abortion and get with it! It needs to stop all the misogyny. That’s all the Catholic Church is.
So when these conservatives like Rupert Murdoch and others who choose Catholicism, they assert, “They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations …” So people choose to be Catholics ’cause there’s squares, ’cause they’re nerds, ’cause they’re geeks, ’cause they like Puritanism and they like Victorianism and they like all these restrictions on social good times. “It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith” for guys like Murdoch to become a Catholic. “They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy.”
So Catholicism — one of the first and oldest Christian denominations — is, according to left is way, way, way off the mark. It’s nothing more than an out-of-place political party. Jennifer “Palmieri, who was also with the Center for American Progress at the time, adds she believes Murdoch, Thomson, and many other conservatives are Catholic because they think it’s ‘the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion.’ She adds, ‘Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals.'”
So what she’s really saying here is that all these Republican Catholics, they’re not religious. They’re phonies! They’re choosing to be Catholic ’cause their friends wouldn’t put up with ’em if they became Jerry Falwell or if they became Franklin Graham or Billy Graham. So they gotta go mainstream Catholic. They’re not even religious! They’re just doing this to fool people. They’re just doing this to make conservatives think that they’re religious when they’re really not religious. It’s just… (This is what they say to themselves privately. This is what’s leaked.)
And then they define Catholicism. And these are the people who are forcing Catholics to violate tenets of their religious faith wherever they can. If they run schools, if they run universities, hospitals, you name it. They’re making them give away and provide what are called abortifacients. For those of you in Rio Linda, these are things that facilitate abortion, drugs that facilitate abortion. They’re making these religious… But they don’t do anything of the sort to Islam or Muslims, except make excuses left and right.
