It was normal, years ago, to see America as the world’s leading economy and the world’s inspiration. America was the solution to the world's problems. We can make that the new normal again, and we will.
RUSH: They haven't arrived at the things they believe by way of independent thought. They have been told to believe this. It's been indoctrinated in them.
RUSH: Journalism is about moving the Democrat Party agenda, and since that failed — journalism failed to move the Democrat Party agenda, journalism failed to destroy the Republican Party, journalism failed to destroy Donald Trump — journalism failed, failed, failed, failed, failed at everything they wanted to accomplish. And so they now need to rethink journalism.
RUSH: It's a Politico piece written by Edward-Isaac Dovere… Now, the upshot of this is that they're in deep trouble, but the important thing is, when you read this, they know it. The media coverage is of a shocked and surprised and bamboozled party that doesn't know what hit it. Well, that turns out not to be true.
RUSH: Obama gave his swan song press conference yesterday. You know what he said at this press conference? This is the most incredible thing.
RUSH: I love this! The way they take things I'm saying out of context. And they throw it into the context they want to use. I'm not complaining, folks. I'm loving it. I am eating it up.
RUSH: Folks, they're unhinged. I don't know another word. "Unhinged" is the best word, other than saying "insane." "Deluded."
RUSH: A lot of people have a lot at stake in maintaining the status quo of mediocrity and failure while telling everybody they're working hard to fix things and never do. Somebody coming along and really fixing things, or dramatically improving things, that poses a great threat. Dangerous times, as I've been telling you.
RUSH: Their world has been turned upside down by somebody who, it was said, didn't have the slightest chance because he didn't know what he was doing. Because he's an outsider, and it's not possible for an outsider to come in here and hit a grand-slam home run their first time up at bat. And Trump has done all of that.
RUSH: We all know that the Democrat Party is unhinged and their values are not ours anymore. They are a different breed now, and the same thing for the United States media. An act of utter irresponsibility occurred on CNN last night on Wolf Blitzer's show — an act of total derangement, irresponsibility, and danger. To me, what CNN did last night disqualifies them from discussions of journalism, from giving them serious consideration and credibility.
No longer is this just gonna be a long list of stories that I might mention on the program. Now, you will get specifically the stories that I talk about on the program and a select list of a few others that I intended to get to but ran out of time. It's going to be more of a real-time base feature rather than just a generic list of places that I go to prep the show.
