Rush Limbaugh had much to say on his radio show Friday regarding Dear Leader and the powers that be that work for him, all the scandals surrounding the WH that are popping out daily that’ve exposed the power of control with their Big Brother Machine hard at work…it’s the Chicago Way dontcha know! – If you didn’t get the chance to hear what was said, you’re in luck now…depending on how you look at the situation.
What was said is somewhat lengthy, so I’m cutting to the chase. Everything will be self-explanatory. See if you agree with what he had to say or not. – This is via FN:
Rush: There’s a context for what’s happening. Herbert Meyer, if I may quote him again, asserted that essentially what’s taking place in the United States right now is a coup, not a violent coup, and not a million artistic coup, but nevertheless a takeover of a government, and it’s being done by the Obama administration.
He referred to it as a coup. I don’t know if he used the word “peaceful,” but clearly there’s a coup d’etat going. You know it and I know it. This is what animates us. This is why the Tea Party exists. This country was founded on certain concepts, principles, beliefs — and they’re under assault. Chief among them under assault is the right to privacy, and that’s what all this is about. So in the midst of this coup d’etat… I happen to like that formulation.
In seeking ways to persuade, for example, the low-information voters of what’s going on, this happens. These are the people continuing to prop Obama up with high approval numbers. The Limbaugh Theorem. How do we reach ’em? How do we tell them? How do we explain what’s going on when they have, perhaps, almost an idolatrous relationship with the president? Well, maybe you tell ’em there’s a coup going on.
There are people attempting to take over this country and to make it something that it wasn’t founded as; turn it into something that it wasn’t intended to be. That is happening. You know it and I know it. It’s peaceful, nonviolent. The military isn’t involved. But nevertheless it’s a coup. So in the context of that and the realization that’s happening, in the midst of learning that the National Security Agency is literally “Hoovering,” vacuuming every telephone record they can, what do we hear?
“Nothing to see here, Rush. Calm down! Slow down, Rush. This is nothing to get concerned about. There’s nothing illegal here. The Fourth Amendment’s not being violated or breached. This is nothing whatsoever to get concerned about.” How can I…? (sigh) I don’t know how people can look at this in context and say that. The people doing this are what make it a big deal. Their motives and their intentions and their clear assault on the whole notion of privacy make it interesting.
I’m sorry for the long detour there, but in the midst of being told that I need to be more levelheaded — and not just me, but all of us who are a little bit concerned here about this Verizon story. We are all being told, “Back off, back off. Nothing to see here. We’re not really, really concerned.” It was in the midst of that that I heard about Prism. That was a Washington Post story that posted on their website around five or six o’clock yesterday afternoon.
The basic tenet of this story is that somebody in the intelligence community — NSA, somewhere — is so concerned over what he’s seeing take place that he went to the Washington Post and took with him a little PowerPoint slide presentation and gave it to the Post and their reporters, and they wrote a story up and put it on their website. The story is that practically every major tech group and company in this country is participating with the government in allowing the government access to their servers.
E-mails, texts, phone calls, photographs. Virtually any communication that’s taking place via the Apple servers, the Microsoft servers, the Google servers, the NSA is able to look at in real time. This is the story now. The guy that went to the Washington Post said, “It was so scary. They can watch us as we type.” The Washington Post published some of the PowerPoint slides. I’m reading this after being told that the Verizon thing is no big deal. “It’s nothing to get concerned about.
“Nothing to see here. Don’t get too worried about that. Don’t go off half cocked!” Here comes the Prism story, and then shortly after the Prism story hits, all of these tech firms start denying it. Apple says, “I never heard of Prism. We don’t know what this is about. We never let anybody have access to our servers without a warrant, without a court order. We never!” Google said the same thing. Microsoft said the same thing. Facebook said the same thing.
They’re all out there denying it. So I thought, “Did the Washington Post get set up?” I’m asking myself, “Did they get set up by somebody walking in and telling them something that wasn’t true?” But then I saw that Prism reported someplace else by this Glenn Greenwald guy at the UK Guardian. So there were two sources for the Prism story, but the tech firms involved continue to deny it. “Nope, it’s not happening.” Now we’ve got audio sound bites.
These guys from the tech firms like Greenwald and some of these others, are blaming Bush for all of this, still. Today! Still today, all of this is the fault of Bush. Bush is the guy that got this ball rolling. So there must be something to it if the left is circling the wagons around Obama and trying to make all of us think that all of this is the fault of George W. Bush. I just gotta tell you something, folks. Richard Nixon never even dreamed of this kind of stuff, and yet most people in this country think that Nixon did 10 times as bad as what’s happening now.
The fact is, Nixon never dreamed of this.
Whatever he wanted to cook up, he never even came up with this. So there is clearly — somewhere, somehow, in some form or another — a coup taking place, and there is an assault on privacy, and there are assaults on people because of their politics and their ideology. It is taking place; it’s undeniable. Yet many of the people we would hope would be pushing back against this and doing their best to join us and warning everybody say, “Nothing to see here! Don’t get all crazy about this. We must be level headed.”
Listen below, it’s well worth it. ~
“If the Constitution exists as it is,” Limbaugh concluded, “and the country was founded as it was, and an administration comes along and doesn’t like that, and is doing everything it can to overturn that Constitution without a convention, doing everything it can to change the direction of this country and—what’s the word, transform it—what’s wrong with calling it a coup?”
