RUSH: California drivers already pay higher taxes than almost anybody else in the country and they're going to get hit again.
RUSH: I doubt that it would be hard to find you next time I'm on the Big Island. Just gotta ask for the guy who thinks we're all being killed, and I'm sure you're known that way. You know, he says that persuasively.
RUSH: The AP and the Washington Post are all in the Drive-Bys, and this AP guy — this AP veteran — went right after the Washington Post and told 'em and told everybody they're making it up.
RUSH: They are doing everything they can to split up you Trump supporters from Trump. And, as I have told you, only Trump can do that. The media didn't make Trump and, as I repeatedly say, they can't bust him.
RUSH: They're moving ahead with cleaning out the barn and they're moving ahead with the wall and shoring up the border, and all the caterwauling and whining and moaning by these children in the media is not stopping Trump.
RUSH: Have you heard about this secret tape where Claire McCaskill, Senator from Missouri, has been overheard speculating on Stephen Breyer maybe getting a stroke or Ruth "Buzzi" Ginsburg dying or some such thing?
RUSH: Wednesday, Trump unloads on the Freedom Caucus, and Wednesday night Trump unloads on the Freedom Caucus, and Thursday the Freedom Caucus says, "Okay, how about these two changes?" So is it possible that Trump calling them out is forcing them to react and make concessions? …If that's the case, then you would have to at least credit Trump and his style for showing results.
RUSH: Mrs. Clinton, during her campaign (and presumably all during), had access to the same stuff. And then the election comes, and Mrs. Clinton is humiliated in defeat and she has access.
RUSH: Nunes is being excoriated for being very careful with highly classified material. In this case it includes the unmasked American citizens. Meanwhile, while Nunes is doing everything he can to respect the classified status of this stuff, look at Hillary Clinton who was trafficking in this stuff — this kind of stuff we're talking about. She was trafficking in this stuff, that server of hers in her basement, in Chappaqua.
RUSH: Trump is saying it's gonna be a tough two days of meetings. It's gonna be really tough. The ChiComs are tough. The ChiComs are smart. And the ChiComs have been negotiating with stupid leaders up 'til now.
RUSH: If anybody ought to be asking for immunity, it's whoever it is that unmasked Flynn and blabbed to the media that he's the guy the Russian ambassador was talking to when this particular surveillance was documented and transcribed. So I just think it's a little premature here to automatically assume that Flynn is guilty in all of this. He may be. I don't know. But I think it's timely here and would make sense to examine everything from all sides.
RUSH: I have detected something. It's not hidden. It is something actually very obvious. I just want to give voice to this, and it is the way the Drive-Bys set the table every day no matter what. Call it the media hot take, which is the first reaction to any new bit of news… They set the stage before they even get into the story by characterizing it as "that doesn't look good."
RUSH: 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.
