RUSH: Illegal immigrants continue to murder American citizens, and the American Media says, “You mean the girl in Iowa?” Elizabeth Warren: “That’s not the point. The girl in Iowa getting killed, that’s not the point. We need to focus on children being separated from their parents at the border.” The modern-day Democrat Party and the American left are for anything that will weaken America, that will destroy this economic opportunity and growth sector that we find ourselves in. They will do anything to destroy the administration that’s making it happen! And they’re doing their level best to make that happen.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims that global warming is killing Americans and that the government is permitting it! Simone Sanders. Simone Sanders is a CNN contributor. She said Mollie Tibbetts, she was not killed by an illegal immigrant. She was killed by toxic masculinity. To that effect masculinity killed Mollie Tibbetts. In other words, white American male standard behavior, toxic masculinity, that’s why Mollie Tibbetts is dead. Not because of illegal immigrant being a murderer.
Kirsten Gillibrand, Democrat senator, “Brett Kavanaugh undermines women’s ability to survive!” Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court threatens the survival of women! How do these people survive a day politically thinking this crap?
RUSH: So let me just tell you what the details are. I said that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was visiting a business her policies have destroyed. She visited a restaurant that she used to work at in New York City on Monday on its final day in business.
It closed because of mandatory minimum wage increases. Ocasio-Cortez former employer, the coffee shop in Union Square shut down after a 28-year run due to high rent and an ever increasing minimum wage that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez strongly supports. (imitating Cortez) “I went to the restaurant I used to work. It’s closing its doors. It’s so sad, so sad.” Just a blithering, just… See? How do you not notice this?
RUSH: Here’s Ken in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Rush, a listener since 1988. This is a privilege. It really is. Thank you very much.
RUSH: Glad to have you. You’re a lifer.
CALLER: Yes. Here’s why I’m calling. Okay, for all the Democrats who are so anxious to get to the polls in November —
CALLER: — I want them to remember one thing. The three million jobs that have been created since Trump took over, there’s a lot of Democrats that got hired. And just to break it down simply ’cause I don’t know if there’s a Democrat who ever paid attention in a economics class, let’s say you have a mortgage for 900 bucks a month, you bought in for $900. And you get your first statement, and all of a sudden the bank says you owe $1,200 a month. Well, you’ve got a choice. You can either move out or you’re gonna have to cut somewhere else in your household budget to cover that 300 bucks.
CALLER: Okay. So to you Democrats who don’t understand this, okay, you got this Ocasio babe going out and saying, “Hey, we just want to raise the corporate tax to 28%.” Well, think about that. That’s a 33% increase over 21%. Now, these companies have all bought in to 21%. They gave people bonuses, they’ve —
RUSH: You’ve already lost 80% of Democrats because 52% of them are getting a government check and none of it matters.
CALLER: Yeah. But, anyway, my point is this. These companies have bought in. Now, if the Democrats get in and they want to change the taxes, okay, get it to 28%, they gotta go back to the drawing board. And they’re gonna have to make cuts. And I can tell you the first place they go is labor. I live about 12 miles away from one of the steel plants that just got reopened since Mr. Trump took over.
CALLER: My son did a very nice article about this plant. And I will tell you, those steelworkers down there who were Democrats, they love Mr. Trump. Because they told my son that he was the first president who did anything for ’em in 40 years.
RUSH: Well, now, wait this is a good point. You remind me of something. Salena Zito, who lives in Pittsburgh, and has written a book about people like your son and others in Pennsylvania and Ohio and some of these other so-called Rust Belt states in the Northeast and the upper Midwest, she is in contact with ’em constantly, she stays in touch with people that she interviewed during the campaign, and she says there’s not a one of them that’s gonna leave Trump over any of this investigation stuff, none of it, because of the very thing you just said.
RUSH: But the question is, how many of ’em are gonna vote again in 2018? How many of ’em are gonna be aware that they have to show up again, because even though Trump isn’t on the ballot, people that are gonna enable him to remain capable of continuing are gonna be on the ballot, how many of ’em are gonna — we don’t know this.
CALLER: Well, here’s the thing and here’s the way I look at it. Okay. You know these steelworkers, what lever they’re gonna pull. But I’m gonna appeal to older Democrats — grandfathers, grandmothers who have been lifelong Democrats who know, okay, this is not the party you grew up in. And I’m gonna bet that they’re gonna say, “Hey, listen. This guy, okay. Yeah, he’s got his faults.” But I gotta tell you something, this economy is good for my son, it’s good for my grandchildren, it’s good for my daughter and her children —
RUSH: I don’t mean to interrupt here, but I don’t disagree with this. If Trump were on the ballot, he’d get reelected. I don’t think the Democrats can beat Trump. But the Democrats are not looking it as though they have to. Trump isn’t on the ballot. I had Trump on the program about 22 days ago. And he told me that he’s not sure that support for him is going to transfer to votes in the midterm elections. Meaning he doesn’t know if he’s gonna have coattails in the midterms.
Then there are theories being bandied about that Trump actually doesn’t care, that if the Democrats win, that it’s only gonna help him get reelected in 2020 because people are gonna see, you know, what a mess the Democrats are gonna make of things. They’ll try to stop Trump and anything he’s doing that makes America great or better, and then they’ll do nothing but subpoena everybody and start investigating everybody and everything in the Trump administration, committee after committee after committee.
I can’t believe that that’s what anybody actually wants to happen, but some are telling us that’s Trump objective, that will help him actually win reelection in 2020. We’ll just have to see. I don’t doubt that people like your son and others who voted for Trump in 2016 would vote for him again.
The Drive-Bys want us to believe that the numbers are dwindling, that some people who voted for Trump are just fed up, like the guy that called us from Stuart, Florida, are just fed up ’cause he keeps nitpicking with people he ought to be ignoring, he keeps tweeting when he ought not, and he just ought to shut up! You know, just stop being bugged by every little thing.
The Drive-Bys want us to believe there are a lot of Trump voters that are still gonna vote for him, but they’re geting fed up and so forth. Salena Zito says that is not happening. But the midterms, to me, are, you know, everybody says the next election is the most important in our lives. You know, I’m past saying that, ’cause you could say it about any number of elections. Just telling you what the alternatives are.
If the Democrats win the House, you know, Pelosi’s running around trying to quiet everybody down from talking impeachment. But, folks, don’t be fooled. That’s what all this is about. It’s all about impeaching Trump. It’s all about using every tool they have to get rid of him. Impeaching him, even if they don’t get the votes to convict him in the Senate, they still want him impeached for no other reason than make up for the fact that Clinton was. There’s still a bunch of Democrats bugged by that. They want Trump impeached just because the Republicans impeached Clinton.
But mostly it’s about getting rid of him. Mostly it’s about destroying Trump’s public support. So after the elections, if the Democrats win the House in 2018, every day is going to be like Watergate. It’s gonna be nothing but investigations. Once the new Democrat House is sworn in in January of 2019, it’s gonna be every committee that they have is gonna be investigating some aspect of the Trump administration and Trump cabinet officials and Trump White House staff. They’re gonna be subpoenaing people left and right.
You’re gonna have battles between the executive branch and legislative branch for oversight. They’re gonna do everything they can to shut down the Trump administration. They’re gonna do everything they can every day to criminalize every aspect of Trump’s political life. Every policy, every statement is going to be treated as a crime, and they’re going to be investigating Trump and his staff and his cabinet on that basis. That’s all it’s gonna be. And the media is gonna be carrying all of it 24/7 with glee and happiness. It’s all you’re gonna see. They can’t wait.
Somebody has to pay for beating Hillary Clinton. Somebody has to pay for taking what they just knew was a guaranteed Democrat victory in 2016. Somebody has to pay, and not just Trump. I mean, a lot of people are gonna pay for it, ’cause this is never gonna be allowed to happen again. Anyway, that’s the future, if the Democrats win. And impeachment’s just a part of that. Basically rolling up the government and essentially shutting it down except for the things Democrats want money spend on.
RUSH: Email after email: “Well, what do you think’s gonna happen in the midterms, Rush?” There’s not time to tell you right now. There’s ample time for that. I’m still not convinced the events that are gonna determine the midterms have happened yet. It sounds strange, but I think it’s still true anyway.
