RUSH: Over the weekend, the Democrat House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, was on Meet the Depressed. She addressed the growing calls, including from Democrats, that John Conyers should face the music over allegations that he sexually harassed a junior female aide.
RUSH: What is becoming clear here, with all of the news we’re getting on Democrats engaging in sexual harassment and the basic mistreatment of women, John Conyers and Al Franken, the Democrats are going out of their way to save both of them, the Democrats and the media. The media is actually leading the charge with the Democrats following along dutifully to save Franken, which I think is good. Keep Franken there. He’s a buffoon, he’s an idiot, and with Franken there, there’s a consistent, “Well, what about Al Franken?”
RUSH: Hey, folks, I hope everybody had a wonderful weekend, a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, and now we are officially into the — well, we call it the Christmas season here, but that's not meant to leave anybody out. Christmas is a national holiday and we are inclusive here at the EIB Network, and so we welcome everybody into our spirit, feelings of joy and goodwill and all of that.
RUSH: You know this tax bill? It actually may happen. I'm beginning to get a sense, I'm beginning to get a feeling that this thing is actually going to happen before Christmas. Trump is on his way to Missouri sometime this week to begin the process of pitching it. Trump is admitting that he's open to some changes perhaps in the way they do the numbers on the pass-through with regard to the reduction in tax rate there.
RUSH: Net neutrality is misnamed. There's nothing "neutral" about it. The government controls it. The government regulates it. If you like government regulation, if you like how government regulation retards things, slows things down, gums things up, causes mistakes to be made, then by all means support net neutrality.
RUSH: Kaepernick, who the sports media is still hell-bent on having a team hire, Kaepernick went to Alcatraz with the Native Americans to protest the un-Thanksgiving. It's what's called the un-Thanksgiving, 'cause the Native Americans once commandeered the place and took it over, you know, after they had closed it as a prison, Native Americans rode out — I don't know what they did, but they took over Alcatraz.
RUSH: Well, this is basically an up-yours press conference. Screw you. And he just wanted to say it for the cameras and microphones instead of a statement. But I'm gonna tell you how much of an act this was. This guy, for whatever else he is, is a 40-year veteran of being on TV and in movies and so forth, and he does not speak like he spoke in this thing. "Uh… Uh… Um… I… I…" trying to act contrite and trying to act sorry and thoughtful.
RUSH: Now, the front-runner for the Democrat nomination as we sit here today — do not doubt me on this — is Bernie Sanders. You disagree with me or you don't believe it? Well, believe it, because the Democrat Party is no more the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party is the party of American communism.
RUSH: What makes this newsworthy is the latest effort by the Drive-By Media to cast Trump as somebody unsuited, unfit, immoral, dictator-like, tyrannical, and it's all about the directorship of what is called the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the CFPB. Now, I wonder how many people even knew that this agency existed before this latest controversy popped up?
RUSH: "LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP" is the acronym. Lesbian. Gay. Genderqueer. Bisexual. Demisexual. Transgender. Transexual. Two-Spirit. Intersex. Queer. Questioning. Asexual. Allies. Pansexual. Polyamorous. Those are now all of the sexual victim groups to whom we all must express sensitivity, compassion, and understanding.
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.
