Rush must be on the pills again, he's being far too honest, here's part of his transcript from today:

Quote:
This all happened with Flynn back in December. Trump had not even been inaugurated yet. And it’s still mysterious to me what really happened. Even if, even if Flynn, as the incoming national security director, had called the Russian ambassador to talk, so what? That’s not hard to imagine. That’s not a big deal. It really isn’t a big deal.

Now, if he lied to Mike Pence and said, “No, no, no, I didn’t talk to the guy. I didn’t talk to the guy about sanctions. I didn’t talk about maybe lifting the sanctions. No, no, no, I didn’t.” And if he did do that, if he lied to Pence, then, okay, there’s a reason for Flynn to be in trouble and maybe to resign, get out of the way. But for the media to say what did Trump know and when did he know it? Get a grip here, folks.

I realize that a lot of people do not pay a whole lot of attention to this, which is good, but for those of you who are, I can imagine the impact on you, and you’re asking, “Well, when’s he gonna stop? I mean, how much more of this can anybody take? How much more of this kind of assault and attacking nature can any administration handle. And then the other question, how long can the Republicans in Congress handle it. How long are they gonna stay bucked up and stiff-spined about it, and time will tell on that.
He knows you don't pay attention. He knows you live and want to live in information isolationism. It's the only way you'll continue to support this administration. Hell, it's the only way you voted for this administration.

Quote:
I’m gonna tell you, Trump’s not stopping. There will be more ICE raids this afternoon to make people forget about this. The media’s gonna try as hard as they can not to let go of this, because now they’ve got their scalp. They think they have blood in the water, they’ve got a scalp and they think they can get another and then another and then another and then another until finally they get Trump.
ICE raids are there to distract you. Rush is telling you that he knows you're ignorant and easily manipulated, right to your face.

This is absolutely amazing stuff. "It isn't a big deal" you blind sheeple.

And yes, the media won't stop, for this is their job. THIS is why we have a free press(for the time being).

WASHINGTON — Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, according to four current and former American officials.

I had some friends go to that protest while Chaffetz tried to claim all the protesters were from out of state.

He's my congressional representative unfortunately

Boy, I sure wish all of this had come out well BEFORE the election. Maybe if it all had, we wouldn't be in this hellhole right now.

Nah, those angry people aren't constituents, they're all paid rabble-rousers!

They can't possibly imagine their own townsfolk could actually be pissed off and are awakening to the idea that they do have someone to stand up to in their neighborbood.

The hubris of these assholes. All of them.

There's desperation in that, but there's no doubt we can see the results of said low bar. So many of these politicians are so painfully mediocre.

How tightly guarded are they? Are none of the world's best hackers anti-Trump?

Get the tax returns leaked and a whole lot of things might becone very clear.

That's where the media should be attacking constantly and without pause.

Hope I'm not repeating something as I miss days at a time at getting online

A bunch of NASA scientists and probably some hackers were able secure away tons of Climate measurements etc that they're rightly afraid Trump & co will delete away...
So yay Team Scientists & helpers!

Obviously none of this in the (in all the various areas of USA and World life) orders of magnitude awful, and terrifying stuff should be happening...

The ICE raids "may" be a "distraction" but not for the people, their friends & families he have/will/afraid of bring affected.

Where were all these pissed off Chaffetz constituents when they elected him last time? Did they not know he was a dick?

Yeah I don't know. I certainly didn't vote for him. He's an embarrassment.

Generally, if you have an R next to your name your going to win every time here. Change comes slowly.

Fortunately, even in the most republican county of the most republican state, there are a growing number that are as mortified by Trump as the rest the world.

The LDS community has tended to be more anti-Trump than most generally conservative groups, no? Pretty much all of the Mormons I know (there are a bunch at my company's Texas offices) are conservatives who cannot stand Trump. I would assume that that would give Utah a different dynamic than a lot of other areas.

i've gotta give it to Paul Ryan... this was an ingenious way to become President without having to run for office.

Meanwhile, the Tom Perez will be chair of the DNC. And the Democrats are bewildered that people are protesting their shitty policies/inaction and are ... asking Bernie Sanders to tell people not to criticize them?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/power...=.bf9eb086b22c

In case you were wondering if the Democrats will continue to lose elections, the answer is a resounding "Yes."

The real question is what happens to Priebus. Right now he is the only one in Trump's close circle who is an establishment guy (and a way in for Ryan/McConnell) but the rumors all say that he's largely being blamed for the chaos and the leaks. If Trump turfs him, the GOP will start getting really antsy about the only thing that matters to them - tax cuts!
