RUSH: A record 1,700-plus criminals were granted clemency and released by Barack Obama. Now, one of those criminals is in trouble again.
RUSH: He got elected on issues of substance, and the truth is that his personality quirks did not hurt him. To some extent they did help.
RUSH: They were well aware of the monopoly they had, and, therefore, they did a fairly decent job of hiding… They didn't hide the bias, but they hid the agenda. Now, when this program came along in 1988, that was the first assault on this monopoly.
RUSH: This is a worldwide effort that has a worldwide taxation purpose. And the thing about a global tax, one that's administered by the UN and that every citizen in the world, give and take a few, is forced to pay, that kind of tax is never undone.
RUSH: Folks, we allowed more Muslims to settle here in the United States in the 10 years after 9/11 than we did in the 10 years prior to it. That doesn't make any sense to me whatsoever. We acted guilty and responsible after 9/11. It doesn't make any sense. That's all I'm saying. We acted like we had done something wrong or that we had to prove that we harbored no animosity.
RUSH: I've never heard Kristol say anything like this. I know people that do think this way. I know Republican elites who think this way, but I've never heard Bill Kristol say anything like this.
RUSH: Who set the Supreme Court, nine people in black robes, as the final authority on any issue? They did. Exactly right. That's exactly right. Marbury v. Madison, the Supreme Court decided, you know what? We're gonna sit here and decide what's constitutional and what isn't. We just decided that we're gonna do that. And so, precedent being inviolable, this is what has evolved. And it's always bothered me, because even low-information people now look at the Supreme Court that way, as the final authority.
RUSH: The media didn't make Trump, and the Republican Party didn't make Trump. Trump made Trump. Now, if the media happens to make you, by that I mean, if you are who you are because the media has sung your praises and done a series of soft soap profiles, if the media treats you as a godlike figure and that's why you're famous, well, the media can destroy you the next day if they want to. All they have to do is change the way they cover you.
RUSH: I just think if they think they're going to need to nuke the nuclear option to get future nominees confirmed, just go ahead and do it for this and be done with it.
