The excellence in broadcasting network a great day to be back folks. Thank you so much. I apologize for being out. I i remember mentioning at the very beginning of. This is going to be random days where i would just need to take off and the last couple have been in. That category had some medical challenges but that was to be expected dealing with them. Every day remains a gift. I wake up every morning. And i thank god that i did and there will probably be down the road similar type days where i will need to take a day for store for whatever medical challenges present themselves but the fact that i'm able to get back here and be with. You is a genuine blessing. And i appreciate it. I appreciate your your understanding Throughout the throughout all of this As as we say everything's day-to-day and especially in the circumstances find myself in everything is day-to-day and you strive to make everyday the best it can be. And that's exactly what i'm doing. So i appreciate your understanding and your patients and here we are revved and ready to go for another three hours of broadcast. Excellence i'm going to violate one of my one of my rules here One of my rules is that when i am disgust in the drive by media what i'm talking about when i am slandered. Libel or misrepresented. I have always come down on the side of ignoring it rather than discussing it because discussing it amplifies it and makes it even bigger than it already is but that is a moot point because in this circumstance air already making it. Bigger than it should have ever been and it's chock full of misrepresentations in lies and so rather than sit here and ignore this and allow people to draw whatever conclusions they do. I'm gonna. I'm gonna deal with this head on and what this is is this supposed- allegation that i am somehow in favor of secession that i am in favor of civil war that i have predicted a civil war that i have suggested that maybe it would just be better if we divided the country. I have not said this. I have acknowledged that. I have seen other people say it. I have not mentioned their name since they obviously do not wanna step forward and own it. But they know who they are. They are bloggers. They are prominent bloggers there. Two or three of them who have numerous times suggested that secession. Be in our future because we don't have in common anymore. The things that divide us have no overlap. All i've done is simply repeat what i have read and as i know i always take great pains to protect people's privacy and their identity even though they're writing under their own names and i have i have not mentioned any names know how volatile the subject is but i do a three hour radio program. That's a lot of content that that exists here and there are many many days where that content yearns to be discussed. So i do now. One of the reasons that i usually do. Not mention these kinds of things because there's a theory. Oh wow limbaugh must really be upset. Now he's talking about it now. It must have really hit a home run. Limbaugh must really be in favor of now. It's not that at all. it's just. I'm sick and tired of being lied about and misrepresented when the people doing it. No they know i am not in favor of secession. They cannot find a single quote of mine. Where i'm in favor of it. So let's go to the audio soundbites. Australia wanted me. We put together a montage here from last wednesday and thursday. And i. i'm not gonna mention the names of the dufuses in this montage but here is how it sounded elsewhere in the media last Let's see last wednesday and thursday liberal. Now he's denying that he was actually in favor of secession. But he's playing with fire rush. Limbaugh talking about secession rush. Limbaugh trial ballooning. civil war. secession. They're calling for military action. We've seen rush limbaugh. Do this the godfather of this sort of political rhetoric introduced it and said oh i was just talking about succession is treason. Russia that talk as reckless. It's irresponsible it is reckless and irresponsible. I never suggested it. I'm simply telling you what other people are saying an no. I'm not going to quote these other people but they know who they are. I find it fascinating when this kind of stuff happens this is by no means the first time i have been accused of saying something where i have simply been repeating what i've said or seeing other people say and they do not step forward and raise their hands and i said i'm the one that said it. They're out there hiding but they know who they are. Okay so that's one montage then thursday night on fox. This is the story with martha mccallum. She had geraldo the grim. Reaper showed up. You know when geraldo shows up. Somebody's going to die or has died and she was talking to geraldo about my comments that the united states may be heading toward secession. So the set things up here. She is introducing in playing an audio clip of mine. Even rush limbaugh warning that he thinks we might be headed in a dangerous direction. An actual separation of the states. I actually think that we're trending toward secession. Can't go on this way. There cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life theories of government theories of how we manage our affairs. We can't be in this dire a conflict without something giving somewhere along the way also profound and challenging statement for our nation right now. Well it's it's a profound challenging statement because all kinds of people are talking about it and by the way have been writing about it for a number of multiple weeks. This is not anything that's actually even knew. Actually think we might be trending toward it. I said that. Because i'm reading about it. I'm reading people who by the way. I've quoted before on this program and who i respect. They're out there saying they're out there and by the way when they say it they don't just say if they it up with their own theories of y and i'm fascinated when they write it on there. Nobody writes about it. Nobody's agent you see what was illinois is such and such blog and no no they wait till i repeat it and then somehow claim it originated with me so after she that up. She then went to the grim reaper. Geraldo rivera for his reaction is treason. Russia alabama is a a powerhouse broadcaster. He's one in a zillion. They come along once a generation but that talk as reckless. It's irresponsible we are one nation indivisible. i had a laugh of rush. Goes on to say that people where he is have no idea what people in new yorker thinking. They're so different. A different species half up new york lives in florida where rush limbaugh lives. It's preposterous leaders. Who accentuate differences and exacerbate the divide themselves as responsible. I didn't accentuate or exacerbate it at all. I didn't originate it. It's something that is out there and being discussed by others. Now here's here's martha mccallum reacting to the grim reaper. That's strong charge. And it is as i said it's a discussion that i think is being had in a lot of places. There's a piece by the claremont institute recently called the which talked about this. I mean nobody wants this to be the case. And i'm sure that rush doesn't want secession session to be where the country's headed ecorse not but see she. She's she's wanting to quote a place that talked about it. The separation that's from the claremont institute. The claremont institute is a very highly reputed conservative. think tank and Library is a library of conservative philosophy in thought and they are discussing it there. So martha did something. Nobody else in the media. Did she went out and actually listened to this program and she found an audio sound bite of me that is appropriate to use in fits based on what all had been discussed on her program so the comments prior to this. We're thursday night on friday. She played a clip. Now imagine if the rest of the media cared about getting things right she wouldn't be the only one found this. This is rush limbaugh. Because last night geraldo went after him for talking about this session statement. I just wanna play this real quick for everybody at home. I simply referenced. What i have seen other people sir about how we are incompatible as currently divided and that secession is something that people are speculating about. I m not advocating. It have not advocated. Never have advocated and probably wouldn't just wanted to square the circle and make sure that we gave russia's do by playing that part of it. So thank you. Martha for the deep digging i into the archives of the program to find something that was readily available for anybody that wanted to to find it now. I don't expect this to change anything like what's going to happen is is that These same critics of aha see we got him. We caught rush rush rush. Knows he's given cross. He's trying to change what he said. But they're gonna they're totally distort the whole thing again because i represent the opposition. I am the if you somehow Come along and damage my credibility than they think. They've damaged the credibility of the entire opposition and so forth. Which is why all of this stuff happens. There's one more. I think i have one more. Maybe and maybe a couple more. Let's let's this. This is from sunday morning on. Meet the depressed during the roundtable and a discussion about people on the right talking about secession. The moderator is f. Chuck todd these talking to the hoover institute. Senior fellow lonnie chen. Who said this rush. Limbaugh the godfather of this sort of political rhetoric that we're dealing with these days also introduced a minute. Stop the godfather of what the the the godfather of this political rhetoric that we are talking about these days godfather political all right. Well your cue it back up to the topless won't interrupt soundbite again know rush limbaugh the godfather this sort of political rhetoric. God also introduced it and said oh i was just talking about it. Talk about secession. And the like is nonsense. And it's dangerous. You talk about going against federalism going against the notion that you should ask the judiciary to be activist overturning. The will of the people i mean. These are the kinds of things chuck growing up in the republican party to me would have been fundamentally offensive. But you've got a bunch of people who are out there. Making this crazy argument essentially to politically appease one man and two politically appease their electorate instead of explaining to them. Hey look here's the reason why this is madness. Why what is madness. I'm not sure. I know what lonnie chen is talking about here. I always thought the hoover institute was a conservative place but it seems that they're getting rid of all the conservative thinking out there and replacing it with a bunch of rhino type thinking lisa. What it seems to me any right this. This is the same people who lied about russian collusion and trump stealing the election in two thousand sixteen to saint people lying about me now. So that's that. I just wanted to set the record straight. I know it's not going to set anything straight. It's going to accomplish the exact opposite but what what matters to me. Is you people in the audience. You understanding what's what. And and what i mean when i say what i mean i m a preeminent communicator. I don't leave anybody in doubt as to what i mean when i say anything i perhaps the most direct communicator. I do not speak in riddles at all and believe me. If if i were in favor of secession you would have no doubt about you. Would you wouldn't doubt for a minute. Just the divisions in this country that exist are largely because of people on the left anyway so if there is anybody out there moving toward a drifting apart or a division of people in this country. It's people on the left us. Okay seek to. I have time to get this next bite. The maybe not. Let me take a brief break. We'll do that. We'll come back. I've got rachel maddow here trying to explain the magic of rush limbaugh. But i'm not quite sure. I understand that. Even reading with transcript. Let's see this last thursday comedy central daily show. Trevor noah is the is the this is the former show hosted by john. John stewart and rachel meadow is the guest and the question to rachel maddow from trevor. No is there something that liberals and democrats are missing in america and learning how to communicate with people and convincing them of ideas. You know that question is actually more profound than this guy understands. The you know the difference in persuasion and convincing. You know the difference. It's a big difference and he asked right here in is there something. Liberals and democrats are missing in america in learning how to communicate with people and convincing them of you know want to convince people you want them to figure it out on their own. You want to persuade not convince anyway. What he's talking about here is the magic of conservative media and how the left can't beat us. They can't beat us in talk radio no matter how they try and he wants to know what matthaeus theory is and she gets it spectacularly wrong. I was also part of this experiment where liberals tried to do. Am talk radio with air. America radio for a long time and it was at that point. am talk. Radio is basically in a foreign language or sports or church or rush limbaugh. We tried and it didn't work. And so i thought about this a lot. I do think that there is something that is a little bit magic about the right wing media that the left wing media. We'll never do. And that. I think liberals and centrists will never do which is that they tell their audience. You can trust no one other than me. There are no facts other than those that i'm giving to. You is so spectacularly wrong. This also illustrates why they don't understand trump they don't understand the bond trump has the connection he has with his voters is basis audience. What heavy and they certainly don't understand the successive talk radio conservative. Talk radio era american. They were clueless from the beginning. They treated it as a fundraising operation. They didn't treat it as a commercial business. And no. I don't know how to make a profit. It's not even part of their their lexicon profits dirty word. Everything is fund raising to them and they have they have no clue about building an audience and holding it and and creating credibility with the audience. This idea that we sit here and tell you look. There's one son of facts. That's what i'm telling you and there's nothing else that's true. That's not at all what happens here or anywhere else in conservative media. We just have the ability born of honesty to connect with people. I mean if there's any group of people out there which is telling your audience you can trust no one other than me. What the hell have we been through for the past four years with mainstream media lying through their teeth multiple times a day about anything and everything having to do with donald trump and conservative media. So they never did understand the success. They thought all they had to do was go on the air. That only had is going to go out. And get some fundraisers against donors be up and running and they had literally no clue how to build an audience how to create an audience. How to connect with with an audience at all so now they. They look at conservative media. Something they can't beat and then he's got to be something. That'd be some kind of magic. It's got to be something that we would never do. It's gotta be something so low. It's got to be something so beneath our dignity that we would never do and whether they decided is well we have our own set of facts and we tell you that whatever we tell you is all there is. There is no alternative. What they don't get is that. I do a better job of preventing of presenting both sides of any issue than they ever will. Because i am into persuasion. I am attempting to get people to think and conclude the proper thing not by convincing them by persuading quick time out. We'll be right back okay. Let's start in the fall. Carol carols in steubenville ohio. I'm glad you called sir. Hello hello sir many those and also lots of prayers for you and your family. Thank you very much. I wanted to talk about the the recent court cases and especially the supreme court cases texas and the kinds of precedent setting for election lawsuits. Basically i'm of the opinion. I i've been following these things a lot and it seems that no one's really willing to hear the case on the merits they basically kinda suggests that while we don't have jurisdiction or we don't have a acceptable remedy or the cases mood or the person doesn't have standing. I'm kind of wondering. Are they basically all saying that. It's impossible to bring an election lawsuit because it's just impossible to bring an election lawsuit on the barracks No i don't think that's what they're saying because if it's a case they wanted to take they would take it. I think You know a friend of mine sent me a note. After the texas after the supreme court refused to hear the texas case and the note is supreme. Court just said that. A state that cheats in a national election which screws everybody in the nation is the only entity. That's allowed to do anything about it. Let's asinine it's like saying the only person who can prosecute a murder is the murderer. His point is the supreme court said not allow one st to start suing other states. Because it would soon be out of control and so forth. I think there's a common denominator this that people. I mean you know this but you may not have put it in your equation. This is strictly about getting rid of donald trump. there isn't an entity in the in the in the american deep state washington establishment. Whatever that doesn't want to get rid of donald trump including enough justices on the supreme court. And i think it's it's there's some additional reasons. Why in the court gave its. It's it's reasons but at the bottom line is that this is the best chance they've ever had to get rid of trump and they're not gonna hear these cases they want him gone. It's no more in my humble estimated. No more complicated than that. The precedence that are being set precedent made to be broken. Supreme court can break whenever president wants any time. It wants down the line depending on if they get a case that they that they want to hear if they get a case that they wanted to side. Okay thank you so you bet. I'm glad you called out there. carol. Here's I guess wh- which one end in pittsburgh your next welcome to the ivy network. Hello they rush mega. Data's mega prayers. But just i wanted. I heard mitch. Mcconnell this morning congratulating joe biden and kamala harris on their win and it. Just i have to tell you. It just sickens me rush. When i hear these career politicians congratulating each other on their many many years a quote public service as they all seem late and you know millions and millions of dollars before they leave and that's called public service. I'm just it just doesn't make sense to me at all and it's just kind of enrages me that they keep doing what they call each other public servants. Wait a minute. Even when they're making millions and millions of dollars wh wh what is making millions and millions of dollars have to do with what. What mcconnell said congratulating biden well congratulating them all these years of public service and quite honestly rush. You know elsa south to me like hey. We're putting the swamp. Oh okay. let's i've got. I've got the audio sound bite here. Let's listen to listen to the turtle. This was on the senate floor today. Mitch mcconnell speaking about the electoral college but look. This is the same answer. I just gave the previous caller. If you if you have taken a look at at the news you will see that. This statement mcconnell is being reported as trump conceding mcconnell. Get it for him. Mcconnell has sewn it up. Mcconnell has finally acknowledged at trump lost even if trump won't that's how this is being portrayed. This is what mcconnell said. The electoral college has spoken so today. I want to congratulate. President elect joe biden. President-elect is no stranger to the senate. he's devoted himself to public service for many years. Also want to congratulate. the vice. President elect our colleague from california senator harris beyond our differences. All americans can take pride that our nation has a female vice president elect for the very first time. And so there you have it then that that suffices for trump as a trump concession in terms of the way it's being reported by the media even though trump hasn't conceded anything. They are reporting that mcconnell effectively. Did it for him. Now your comment about public service and the fact that these people. I your biden and and in hunter i gotta tell you know. It's it's it's amazing there there at least four separate federal criminal investigations of the biden family. Going on right now. You know people about the move into the white house. There are four separate federal criminal investigations that resulted from joe biden's years and years and years of quote unquote public service. And here's mitch mcconnell congratulating him on all those years of public service. Here's some headlines hundred biden right in six million dollars in nine months from communist chinese dealings not including the two point eight carat diamond that he got his a gift. Hundred biden failed to disclose four hundred thousand dollars in barisno payments biden is poised to hand republicans and incredible tool to investigate the hunter corruption scandal and joe biden deflects. Questions from the press stays silent on criminal investigation of hunter biden hundred biden self. The us attorney's office is investigating his tax affairs. He said i learned yesterday for the first time the. Us attorney's office in delaware advise my lawyer also yesterday that they are investigating. My hair's so all of this before the election well it was. There just wasn't reported by the people who are reporting now. So why are the people who didn't report this. The election reporting it now my friends. I have explained this on previous editions of this program. Remember the my theory is the ultimate objective is to get biden replaced as soon as feasible. They want combo in there for a whole host of reasons but even if they even even if i'm wrong about that there is another theory and it is the people in the deep state the fbi the intelligence community look what they've got on biden. Now i mean the intelligence community they want to be the first to meet with every president every day. They wanna have access they now have the means of. I mean they can tell biden what to do when to do it and how to do it. Otherwise they go public with all this otherwise they make hay out of it the fact that they have this data the fact that they're letting biden known. Everybody know on his team that this supposedly criminal activity is something they are keeping an eye on is the best way. They have controlling the best way they have of having the executive branch do what these people in a other regions of the executive branch want done. So the difference here is rather than us this before the election as a means of maybe casting doubt on biden's competence and his credibility they hold it they hold onto the information and use it after he's elected as a means of controlling him and that's where we are right. Now that's why all of a sudden these headlines are popping up everywhere and that's why all of a sudden everywhere all the details about all this stuff which you and i knew before the election because of bob alinsky in of the other people the mainstream media never reported any of it. They're only reporting it now. After the election. This is done so as to maintain a level of control over biden as he assumes orifice next month. Be right back they were going back to the phones in just a second but before we do grab audio. Sound bite number ten day mitch. Mcconnell the turtle was sound bite number. Ten john harwood today on. Cnn's news room and he was with jim shooter who said moments before senate majority leader. The turtle made those comments on the senate floor calling biden. President elect for the first time. President trump continued to tweet out baseless conspiracy theory attacks about the stolen election. Do you have any reaction from the white house on this yet from what the turtle did and if not how do you think the president handles. What the turtle did. President trump has the power to sink those two incumbent republican senators if he wants to discouraging people from supporting them kelly leffler the appointed. Senator david purdue. The elected senator. The president has the capacity to take away. Mitch mcconnell's job as majority leader if he sinks those two is he willing to do it. Yeah i think these people think that he is so just to explain this. So mcconnell goes out and basically says for the first time anywhere in the republican party. Joe biden's president-elect. Congratulations mr president by the way. Congratulations comedy harris. The american people are happy to see the first ever woman elected vice-president. That's great with so happy. We're also apso trump watches. Nece trump gets mad. Trump says a turtle you like being the leader of the senate will. I'm gonna taken away from you. I'm going to go out there. And i'm gonna suggest a republican voters in georgia that they not support kelly lovelier and and purdue and thereby the democrats are gonna own the government. And they're going to own the senate and therefore you will have nothing to be leader of. That's what harwood is suggesting. Trump can do as a reaction to mcconnell essentially acknowledging for the republican party. That biden is official. Here's here's jim. In astoria oregon. Jim great to have you on the eib network. Hello mega does rush. That's my birthday today. I get my present Thank you very much appreciate. You don't know you know there are sixty million people praying for you and your family especially. I really appreciate that to more than you know. But but what i wanted to say was Back in april two thousand seventeen California was Injuring articles of secession in their legislature. So i don't understand what's the big deal. Well if anyone did say yes you. Do you know what i the reason. I wanted to take your call. We bumped you up in the order. Because i just found this story in one of the reason breaks and here it is. It's actually. This is a webpage. It's from november tenth. Two thousand sixteen. This is just a week after the election week after trump won one week seven days. California secession plan gains momentum after trump win. Californians made it abundantly. Clear tuesday night. They didn't wanna see. Donald trump in the white house. Overwhelmingly voting for hillary clinton now disappointed with trump's victory. They're seeking another way out. A group of secessionists is taking advantage of post election discontent to push for collects it the new name for the prospect of california. See seating from the us it's modeled after brexit britain's historic decision to leave the european union discussion of the idea exploded whitens day on twitter and nowhere to be found was geraldo rivera. Calling traitorous nowhere to be found was geraldo rivera suggesting that it was treasonous. Formerly nicotine stained fingers at the state of california. They headline california secession plan gains momentum after trump win. There wasn't a single complaint. There wasn't any righteous hand wringing. There wasn't oh my god. This is outrageous. California needs to be so ashamed of themselves. California's craziness california. This is outrageous. Dare you suggested thing there was. None of that and new york has talked about secession as well off and on for decades i guess. Guess it's cute I guess it's cute when california. Does it right here november tenth. Two thousand sixteen. It wasn't the election wasn't even a week. Old ladies and gentlemen don't jim in oregon great memory. Glad you call. We'll take a brief break and be back and continue right after this. Bill gates was on cnn. Recently with With jake tapper. The topic was the pandemic and bill gates. Spoke about how bad winter wave of corona's corona virus is going to be and basically said that we need to shut down bars and restaurants. It just needs to happen and i needed. Shut them down for six months minimum. So here we have a billionaire telling a reporter at cnn that we need to keep closing down businesses and nobody says nobody challenges it. Nobody disagrees. Nobody why are we listening to bill gates. What in the world has gates done where his expertise on this bill gates could withstand being shut down for ten years but these bars and restaurants.

Anyway folks greetings and welcome great to have you here. It's rush limbaugh the eib network telephone number. If you wanna be on. The program is eight hundred two eight two two eight eight two and the email address elrushbo at eibnet dot u. s. headline here for you know biden hasn't won yet. There's one more nightmare scenario. And this is from the hill dot com. And i. i'm going to walk you through this. The turtle mitch mcconnell and one of his aides. John thune are begging republican. Senators not to do this begging them not to do it. I'll explain it in due course but there is a what you hear sound bite from ron. Johnson senate homeland security governmental affairs committee hearing today on election security. The chairman of this committee is ron. Johnson republican wisconsin. And he and gary peters. Who's the democrat on the committee from michigan. This listen to the by this is this is ron johnson telling democrats and the deep state how they have lied for the last four years and now wanna be totally excused and exonerated and essentially treated as though none of the last four years ever happened after r biden investigation and the revelations of the hundred by computers said oh. This is russian disinformation. Now we find out. It's a real investigation by the justice department. So it's just galling. And i just have to point out that the purveyors of russian disinformation hillary clinton's campaign. The dnc steele dossier. The ranking member peter's accusing senator grassley. I of descending russian disinformation. That's where the information is coming. That's where the false information the lies this false allegations. That can't sit here and listen to this and say that. This is not disinformation today. This is getting information. We have to take a look at to restore confidence in our election integrity. We're not going to be able to just move on without bring up these irregularities examining them and providing an explanation for chairman. I gotta responded that. He lied repeatedly in the press. I was spreading recipes information and that was an outright lie. And i told you to stop lying and you continue to do it. This is not about airing your grievances. Mr trump. you can't make you a star gatien's and then dropping it there. This is terrible. What you're doing to this committee and all the great work that you talked to is what you have done to this community exactly right. These people lied for four years. What johnson's point here is is exactly what what you and i know that the democrats in this committee the democrats everywhere. Democrats the media line for four years about trump and russia and collusion. You know the drill. Then when the hunter biden laptop story appeared in the new york. Post these same people said. It's russian disinformation you had you. Had adam schiff saying you had john. Brennan sang at the former c. I. clapper all these people saying that the new york post story on hundred biden's laptop and all of this chicanery taking place. All this was. Another russian disinformation then after a few weeks go by hunter biden admits that he has engaged in this in these behaviors and his behavior is under investigation tax fraud and a number of things and ron. Johnson's is fit to be tied here because they lied about him. They've lied about trump. they've lied about everybody for the last four years. And claiming ron johnson by proposing that the new york post story on one hundred biden's laptop is serious. That'd be taken seriously be used. As they starting point for an investigation they tried to disqualify by saying. It's russian disinformation. Essentially saying that ron johnson's or russian stooge. When of course the truth is that it's the chai calms we need to be focusing on and not the russians. But this is this goto that the democrats have had an and johnson is rightly and properly fed up with this so he called them out on it. And you're heard peter's you can't use this committee hearing for these purposes or personal partner. You can't and johnson wasn't having any of it so i wanted to hear it because it's about time not gonna is not going to change much but it's it's still as an example of a republican fighting back to a certain extent know how far or how much how much going gonna matter but nevertheless to this hill story. No biden hasn't won yet. There is one more nightmare scenario. Let me let me run through this for you folks. Everybody thinks that with the supreme court's rejection of texas lawsuit that it's over right. Well maybe not. Trump has one more card to play depending on whether republicans in congress are more loyal to trump than they are to the country that you gotta read. This is the hill dot com. And of course it's going to have its sheriff's snark as they report the story so depending on whether republicans are more loyal to trump than they are to the countries they set up a false straw dog that if you support trump your automatically disloyal to the country i mean it's absurd but such is the hatred for this guy. The hatred for donald trump shows no signs of abating. i don't think trump could become invisible. Which isn't going to happen even if he became invisible even if he just vanished from the public scene their hatred for this guy will not go away it's going to continue to dominate them and govern much of their behavior. So here's the deal. After the electoral votes are cast. They have to be accepted by congress. The electoral votes were cast on december fourteenth by law. The house and the senate meet together on january six and if any states ballots are challenged by one member of the house and one member of the senate then the house and the senate must meet separately and vote on the challenge. Now one hundred. Twenty six members of congress signed onto the texas lawsuit to overturn joe. Biden's victory that many republican senators have not accepted biden. president elect some states are going to be challenged. And it's not a hundred twenty six senators. There's an error in the way this has written. Let me let me read this paragraph given one hundred twenty six members of congress signed onto the texas lawsuit to overturn biden's victory and that many not that many as an equally one twenty six and that a lot of republican senators have not accepted biden as the president elect. Some states are going to be challenged and this things get interesting. The controlling federal law the electoral count act. Ever heard of that. The ec- the electoral count. Act it's more than one hundred years old said to be very opaque it has never been fully used and the hill dot com. Says here it may not even be constitutional now. The congress over which the old vice president will be presiding will be the new ones sworn in january third. The new house narrowly democratic will vote down any challenge but the senate something very different could occur there because the republicans we we don't know yet but they're still going to control the senate on this date so let's play. Let us suppose that the balance in the senate is fifty two to forty eight republican however senators romney. Ben sasse susan. Collins and lisa murkowski have said that biden one so biden wins in a close vote right and even if the senate votes to uphold the challenges the ec has a tiebreaking provision any slate of electors that is certified by their state's governor will be accepted if the house and senate disagree so that scenario biden again would win thus the new york times assumes that republican challenges to the electoral votes would be futile. But what if the senate never finishes voting. The electoral count act limits. Each challenged no more than two hours of debate. Four states were questioned in the lawsuit. Georgia wisconsin michigan and pennsylvania. Their practices were questioned. That makes four challenges and eight hours of delay even in the senate. Eight hours of debate cannot last more than a couple of days right now. The law envisions the ability to challenge electoral votes collectively or individually. So ted cruz could come along and would challenge not every state but each electoral vote separately and as a delaying tactic. Why wouldn't the trumpers challenge every biden slate. A state even delaware. The goal here in this procedure is not actually to win. The goal is to delay to prevent the tiebreaking provisions of the sea from happening. Remember the presiding officer. Under the electoral counac would be mike. Pence expected to interpret the rules in a way highly favorable to the republicans. Look all of. This is a real long shot. But i'm just pointing out that. They're worried about the senate. Mcconnell is worried that somebody in the republican party is going to try the trigger this and hope for a long shot of upsetting the apple cart and preventing biden from being selected by electoral college pens. Could be expected to interpret the rules in a way highly favorable to republicans. He can help the gop delay. Any resolution until about january eighteenth. Now i know this is the this is confusing and it's it's largely confusing of there's a journalism is such woeful state right now. People writing about these things have a tough time explaining them but the electoral count act. Which i ex very very brilliantly described is what republican trump supporters in three states have elected alternative electors for. That's why this happened. That's why they elected and alternative slate of electors. Because of this the electoral count act. They were all thinking forward about how maybe they can put more maneuver into play now. Here comes the end game maneuver the constitution. Specifies that if there is no electoral college winner the senate chooses the vice president and the house would pick the president. All of this came up by the way in bush. V gore in two thousand. I don't expect a lot of people to remember it but it did. Because the constitution was the same then as it is now so under this in game maneuver the senate. Claiming there's no electoral college result would pick pence as the vice president. Overturning an election. Why not the raw ridden polarization in american politics shown that no precedent or law is safe. Ask merrick garland all these people at the hill dot com or just fit to be tied. Now it it won't be a biden. Pence administration democrat majority in. The house cannot pick biden because when picking president the house votes by state delegation and republicans. Control morehouse delegations. This could result in trump being elected president if they pull this off because there are more republican state delegate. It's not a matter that the democrats control the house. It's the fact that there are. More republican state delegations. And that's how the vote is because it's all relative to the electoral college now. The hill dot com says here that the house democrats will never let this vote happen. If that's the case if everything else that i've described happens but that there is not a final vote it means we won't have a president if we don't have a president by noon on january twentieth the law of presidential succession comes into play. But who's next in line. Republicans will say that. The presidency is empty. But the senate ditch job and picked pence as vice president. The democrats will save. The whole process was illegal and unconstitutional. And that the next in line is therefore pelosi. This would be the stalemate of all stalemates and empty presidency at noon on january twentieth trump. Tweeting that it should remain his democrats saying pelosi your biden. Some republicans secretly hoping it's pants and if you're thinking that the supreme court would save biden think again it would probably rule the question to be a political one and therefore non judiciable meaning. They wouldn't have standing look at it anyway. There isn't a clear constitutional principle or law that the court could apply that takes us to the next story and the headline of. Which is they get the next page mcconnell urges. Gop senators not to object to electoral college vote because it said to be a guaranteed failure. Anyway this is going nowhere. There is no hope for this. Don't any of you guys know. Republicans don't fall for this. Don't try it. they're really worried about the scenario. Actually falling coming into play. Let me take a brief break because of the constraints of the programming format amount of time. And we'll be back in continued to second. Hi welcome back rush. Limbaugh the network where we have more fun than human being should be allowed to have. Now i'm gonna. I'm going to run through the scenario again. Because i realized that i read much of that verbatim as it was published by the hill dot com and some of it was disjointed. And i imagine a lot of you're confused especially because there is there's a counter theory to this and the counter theory is that that the scenario described by the hill dot com cannot happen and would not happen because january sex when congress meets to record the votes in the electoral college. Any state's electoral votes can be challenged. If one member of the house and one member of the senate object that happens in each chamber house and senate debate for two hours. Then hold a floor vote on whether to accept the electoral votes or not if the two chambers deadlock with the house voting yes the senate voting no then. This theory says that the results certified by the governor of that state. Whichever state we're talking about here would become the tiebreaker. Which according to the counter theory here means that there is no way to block biden's victory. That's that's an answer to the hill dot coms scenario where they spell out. How if things happen to force a vote in the house on who the president will be the number of delegations in the house since the house will vote by delegation. Not by straight membership number. the democrats. control the house. But they they do. Not have as many delegations as the republicans voting delegation of republicans would then control the house and vote there but this counters theory says that the tiebreaker would go to the governor. The results certified by the governor of the state who's electro vulture being challenged here so indication georgia which is one of the states that the electoral vote the slight with alternate slate was elected sense since camp has certified biden the winner. Then there's nothing anybody can do to stop it in this scenario. Why it's it's confusing and it is a real real real longshot. Let me still run through the scenario again and the competing scenarios which try to say that. This isn't mcconnell enthused begging republican senators not to do this and merry christmas happy holidays to one and all from all of us here at the excellence in broadcasting network now if you think that challenging the electoral college votes when they have to be formerly tallied by the congress. You'd think that's unprecedented. Let me remind you that eleven times. The democrats challenged two thousand sixteen electoral vote count. It was interrupted eleven times. You have forgotten. Hillary clinton was in there trying to maneuver the electoral college out of existence. They were trying to all kinds of things to invalidate the electoral college. Eleven times biden was interrupted during the electoral vote count. He was the sitting vice president at the time presided over the joint session of congress where members officially tallied electoral votes from the two thousand sixteen presidential election during the course of the certification which is what the vote is house. Democrats tried to object to electoral votes from many states biden. Gaveling them down for failure to follow the rules objections to the votes needed to be in writing signed by both a member of the house and a member of the senate every house member who rose object did so without a senators signature. They were just trying to flunk the entire process jim. Mcgovern massachusetts rose to object to the certification from alabama. Jamie raskin of maryland rose to object to ten of florida's twenty nine electoral votes. No sooner had the florida question been settled and its neighbor to the north was the subject of another objection when washington representative pramila objected georgia's vote certificate went on and on eleven separate times. So don't think that if the republicans do this that it somehow unprecedented. Here's another thing. I i'm not sure this is exactly right but it's close there. I think it is the republicans control. Thirty six delegations in the house of representative and a democrats fourteen at something close to that and again it's an illustration of why. The electoral college is so brilliant because the california delegation is huge in terms of numbers of people and the new york delegation is huge in terms of the number of members but the number of members is not the factor. The number of allegations is the factor the house votes my delegation not by individual member in this scenario so the republicans vastly outnumber the democrats. In terms of numbers of delegations it would be a slam dunk. Vote if it got that far and remember the democrats objected early. They objected often to the electoral college. Vote in twenty sixty. I mean maxine waters and barbara lee objected. Eleven times claiming the election was stolen by the russians and these democrats are still out trying to make that claim. So let me. Let me run through this. This scenario one. More time. I get to the the basics of it here again by law. The house and senate will meet together on january six to officially record the electoral college vote. If any state's electoral college ballots are challenged by one member of the house. One member to send off. Somebody wants to challenge the george vote if somebody wants to challenge the pennsylvania boat all they gotta do is get one senator and one member of the house to record the objection the challenge if that happens everything stops and the house and senate then meet separately and vote on the challenge. Now one hundred. Twenty six members of congress signed onto the taxes lawsuit to overturn biden's victory and a lot of republican. Senators have not accepted biden as the president-elect so some states are going to be challenged so goes the theory that takes us to the electoral count. Act the way. It's more than one hundred years old. It's never been fully used. So let's get a scenario here. Let's suppose the balance fifty to forty eight republican but. Let's say that. Romney ben sasse susan collins. Lisa murkowski have said that biden one. So biden wins in a close vote and even if the senate votes to uphold the challenges the ec has a tiebreaking provisions and this would trigger if these four things have these four republican senators democrats that would trigger the tiebreaker provision any slate of electors that is certified by their state's governor will be accepted if the house and senate disagreed. That brings the the governor into play as a tiebreaker and under the one of these scenarios in opposition to this is. That is that governor. Can georgia could totally put the kabosh on this By by simply using the electoral count that he certified as the tiebreaker. But there are other states where this could work and could happen so the key is delayed. The key is to make sure that nothing final ever happens. So what happens if the senate never finishes voting. The electoral count act limits. Each challenge in the more than two hours of debate. Now four states were questioned in the lawsuit the texas. That's georgia wisconsin michigan. Pennsylvania that makes four challenges. Two hours of debate. Each equals eight hours of debate slash delay even in the senate. Eight hours of debate. Can't last more than a couple of days can can last as long as anybody wants it to now the law. Pardon the sniffles. Here folks though. The law envisions the ability to challenge electoral votes collectively or individually. You can have ten crews. Who would challenge not every state but each electoral votes separately as a delaying tactic. Why wouldn't trump supporters challenge every biden's state even delaware if the objective here is delay. See the goal here is not to win in this particular procedure. At this stage the goal is to delay to prevent the tiebreaking provision from the from happening again the tiebreaking provision is the governor and to re to repeat this if the house and senate deadlock with the house voting yes. The senate voting no on the certification of the electoral college votes from a particular state. Then the results certified by the governor of that state become the tiebreaker. That's what is hopefully prevented. Keep it from getting to that phase getting it to the governor in this case kampen and georgia providing the tiebreaker the presiding officer under the electoral count act as mike pence. And because he's vice president would be expected to interpret the rules in a way highly favorable to republicans. He can help the republican delay. Any resolution until january eighteenth. If he wants so now comes the end game maneuver. the constitution. specifies that if there is no electoral college winner which is which is the objective. Here then the senate chooses the vice president and the house picks the president the senate claiming there's no electoral college result because we haven't certified. We can't get them certified too much going on here. They would pick pence pencil. Be the vice president but the house would not vote for biden because democrats do not control. The number of delegations in the house the republicans do and the house vote would be by delegation not by republicans democrats total. There are in the house. The democrat majority in the house cannot pick biden because when picking a president according to these rules the house will vote by state delegation and the republicans. Control morehouse delegations. so who's next in line succession. Republicans would claim that the presidency is empty. But the senate did its job. And they picked pence the democrats say. The whole process was illegal and unconstitutional. The next in line would be pelosi. Stalemate an empty presidency at noon on january. Look this is a real long shot. But you're going to see a lot of talk about it. And i want you to try to have a base understanding of what this is as you hear it discussed Elsewhere cable news and wherever so empty presidency at noon on january twentieth trump tweeting left and right that it should remain his democrats pelosi r biden and some republicans secretly. Hoping it's pants. If you're thinking that the supreme court would save biden again it would probably rule the question to be a political one and not want any part of it and And not touch. Although that's a long shot too. I think i think the supreme court is so invested in democrats controlling things in an deep state being put back in power that the assumption that the supreme court would not want to touch. This is a long shot. At any rate. This is how you could end up with trump being re elected president by the house of representatives. That's why the story phoune warn senate. Gop please don't object to any of the electoral college results on january six. Don't do this. Why would they issue. This warning is it that they're afraid the party will look silly. How silly does a republican party already. Look they don't want any eight. Don't want any hiccups on the road to to biden being officially elected by the electoral college. And i just wanna against stress. It is a very very very long shot but it is is a possibility. And it's still out there as a possibility. And i just wanted you to be as up to speed understanding it as As you could we'll take a brief break. We'll come back and resume right after this half my brain tied behind my back just to make it. Fair fairness the essence of the eib network. You know vice. President biden tried to take trump out using logan act. That has not ever been done before. Nobody's ever prosecuted. Anybody under the logan act but biden came up with the idea. In that january five oval office meeting in two thousand seventeen with obama where they plotted the strategy to get the steele dossier in the news. The next day by having komi tell trump about it in a meeting at trump tower. It was biden. Who suggested that they try to take trump out disqualify him as president using logan act. So why should the republicans use some little or never used longshot. Law like the electoral count. Act to take down biden. Fair is fair is it not biden tried to take trump out using the logan act. It's never been used. It may not even be constitutional. So little tit for tat here. Yeah we'll take biden out. Using the electoral count act and maneuver things into a delay and delay and delay to finally were has to be a vote in the house by a delegation on. Who the president is i. I'm just asking. I'm not suggesting. I'm not don't know. And by the way there's some guy in texas it just passed a secession law. And he didn't call me about it. I didn't know anything about what what. I don't think what's a good idea. Oh well here's here's the thing the the There is a movement throughout the blogs is fear well now i can't say throughout the block. There was a movement in the mainstream republican party to shame. Republicans in senate from not doing this under the premise. That it's such a long shot. It can't happen there is no way. And the only reason you republicans do it would be to ingratiate yourself with the base and that is a mistake. Don't do it you. Republicans constantly shooting yourself in the foot. Meanwhile if you go back to twenty sixteen the democrats used this attempt eleven times. They interrupted the electoral college. Vote eat eleven times and they didn't pay a price in fact when the media was reporting on this they talked about. Wow what if the democrats pulled this off. They were all excited now. I know the same kind of coverage. You'll not happen if if the same thing happens on january six with the republicans. Invoking this procedure. But i'm just telling you there is an effort. And here's mcconnell warns senate republicans. Please don't object to any of the electoral college results. Another headline mcconnell urges republican senators not to object to electoral college vote. Why why why. Republicans are always coming up with this strategy. Let's not let's not upset the applecart. Let's show the left that we're responsible. Let's show the media that that we're we're we're okay that we're not frivolous. Let's let's demonstrate that we're not who they think it never works never works any grandma a call here before the hour ends as mac in las vegas. Glad you called. Welcome to the program mac. Hi thanks rush. Major mega did From a from rush baby. That's been listening since nineteen ninety waiting for freshman in high almost a lifer i all my appreciate that and You know we're praying for you and your family as well to my family is I got to I gotta say as much as i want. President trump to remain in office. I gotta go with senator mcconnell on this one and that's because there's already such a civic ignorance about the electoral college that if if this were to happen republicans were to do this. Then it would always it. Would it would create such confusion that there's such a. There's a movement to abolish the the electoral college right now and this we give the give them the fodder that they needed the rallying cry to say. Hey look how bad. The electoral college is the republicans used to steal the election. And it would be a very big push to To the electoral college when when we need it and i feel like it would be sacrificing the war to win a battle today. Okay well i I'll have to take your comments under advisement electoral college. Because i'm out of time to respond now. So i will reserve my response when i have more time on the electoral college. I think anything that edrich people on the brilliance of the electoral electoral certain the electoral college. Anything educates people on that as opposed to the electoral college and the electoral college. If educate people on that than i say why not break top of the hour back with more in okay. Let me officially answer our last caller in our first caller the day parade if this electoral count act is used to thwart biden's election by the electoral college. Our caller was afraid. That doing this would just facilitate the democrats desire to get rid of the electoral college. The democrats don't want to get rid of the electoral college now folks since day one since they think biden one. They don't want to get rid of it now. The idea that this might motivate them to get rid of it. I don't think so. I i really do fall down on it this way or come down on it this way. I'm all for educating people. I think there is such a lack of understanding about the electoral college. Anyway at anything that would further educate people on how it works and how brilliant it is. Did you realize having the house. In this scenario that utilizes the electoral count. Act look folks. it's a long shot. I don't wanna. I don't wanna create a false sensory. It's i- vast long shot. But that is also illustrative of the brilliance. The founding fathers in creating the electoral college. The electoral college was created to avoid the direct democracy of electing the president. Get rid of the popular vote because they knew that population centers would be vastly different in size and they had to find a way the equalised that it's as though they knew in advance that california and new york would be vastly more populated than many other states and if the election of the president was determined by the popular vote alone then heavily populated areas would determine who the president is so the way they were thinking why should two or three states determine the president every election. That's not fair so. He came up with the electoral college and they appointed a number of electors per state based on the size of that state's congressional delegation and that ended up eliminating the popular vote advantage of populous states. It was brilliant in its conception. As is the electoral count. Act having the in the case of the house electing the president and the senate electing the vice president the ca- in terms of the house. They determined that the vote would be by delegation which is a continuation of the same theory utilized in the creation of the electoral college. It eliminates the population centers from having an unfair outsized advantage so in the case of the house electing the president should that scenario ever happen. The vote in the house is by delegation not by individual members. Now democrats control the house and even after the new houses sworn in despite the republican gains they will still control the house but the vote would be by virtue of delegation the republicans. It's like have you seen them. The county map of the country after a presidential election ninety nine percent red ninety five percent red blue and new york got blue in california. They got blue along the border in texas. But the number of counties that are red dwarfs the number of counties learn blue but the populous counties that are blue outnumber in some scenarios the vast number of counties that are red and so the electoral college and the electoral count act both suffice to equalize they unfair disadvantage that populated highly populated areas. Have and anything that educates people. How this works is good in my book. So that's that. I think that the republicans who oppose this they just want to maintain their positions in the in the establishment. And they're probably going to end up prevailing but it. It is a long shot. I want to remind you though of another effort that was made to undermine the electoral college back in two thousand sixteen. Does the name lessig. Larry lessig ring a bell. Larry lessig as a harvard university constitutional law professor and he made a brief for the two thousand sixteen democrat presidential nomination he bombed obviously but back on december thirteenth two thousand sixteen four years ago. Larry lessig claimed that twenty republican members of the electoral college. We're considering voting against trump. Had that happened. That would put anti-trump activists more than halfway towards stalling trump's election. It's lying through his teeth. It wasn't the case. But he's out there saying it and the media is out there reporting it. Larry lessig even have a name for this group called electors trust and he was offering pro bono legal counsel to republican presidential electors considering ditching trump. He's been acting as a clearinghouse for electoral to privately communicate. their intentions. This guy was trying to sabotage the electoral college himself. That's why you remember the name mr snerdley. And he claimed that he had about by december thirteenth. He and found twenty trump electors. That we're gonna flip. But he provided no evidence to back up the claim. He said his group had heard from twenty republicans. Were open to breaking with trump. but if you recall when it came time to actually count the votes the electoral college. None of this happened. None of the democrats claims happened. The electoral college persevered it triumphed and it probably is going to be the same circumstances. Same thing this. This time. I just wanted to share with you. The scenario that that remains the one remaining scenario that could thwart the The election of plugs. And as i say folks tremendous long shot and the people that run the senate on the republican side. Want no part of it and because they want no part of it and since they run the senate they've got all kinds of options available to them to thwart an effort like this so just to keep a. sharp. I i wanted you to know what's going on so that when it's discussed it you'll have a baseline understanding. Let me get to the audio soundbites. I want to start here with number one. Npr has decided they need to listen to this program for signs. That trump is going to concede all things considered the co host. Is elsa chang and she's talking to their National political correspondent guy named don gonyea. He said what about conservative media outlets and we know that trump watches them very closely. What are they saying about the electoral college. Vote not surprisingly when you tune into newsmax or one america news. You don't hear proclamations that the election is over. You hear a lot about hunter biden but listen to this from limbaugh this afternoon. He doesn't say biden won outright. But give listen. Do you realize how much of cable news is going to have nothing to talk about that. Trump has gone or allegedly gone. Don't get madame ear folks. I'm just saying that without trump in the white house providing media fodder countless hours per day. They're not gonna know what to do. And of course it goes without saying if president trump had conceded. We will lead with that. He's tweeting today. False claims about election fraud still tweeting. False claims about election fraud and waiting for trump to concede trump. Hasn't he hasn't conceded because of this shot possibility in the house. There's no way. Trump's gonna concede remember the objective of this long shot possibilities to delay things up to january eighteenth. Here's little. Brian stelter c. n. n. reporting on conservative media claiming that i framed trump's supreme court loss as an elitist plot rush limbaugh framed that trump's supreme court loss as some sort of elitist plot. This is strictly about getting rid of donald trump. there isn't an entity in the american deep state washington establishment whatever that doesn't want to get rid of donald trump including enough justices on the supreme court. There is supply for these lies because there is demand for these lies demand. That is not going away. What lies was lies. Brian come on. Are you really this obtuse. I guess he may be. Do you really not understand. The hatred for trump at every level of the washington establishment from the judicial branch. The legislative branch to even in the executive branch trump was undermining by saboteurs throughout his four years. The idea that that Somehow a lie to say that there isn't an entity in the american deep state doesn't want rid of donald trump. That's not a lie whether there's demand or supply whatever it simply happens to be the case now. I said yesterday on this very program that joe biden serves at the pleasure of obama. Want you to listen to this. Next sound bite audio. Sound like this number. Four this jeff zeleny. He's at cnn situation room. And this is what he said about. Biden the president-elect. He's back on the campaign trail with his own. Victory affirmed by the electoral college. Now he's fighting for the senate. Give us the latest developed. President-elect joe joe biden rather did finish speaking here. Did you hear that faux pas. President elect joe obama confirming my assertion. That biden serves at the pleasure of obama. Make no mistake. And that's not a lie based on supply or demand. It's not a lie in any shape. Matter or form biden knows it too by the way he knows he's serving at the pleasure. A barack obama obama's the guy that made All of this happened look Let me think a brief timeout here. We'll come back. i'm gonna get back to the phones. I promise people will spend more time on the phones than than than usual. And i want to get started on that promise. We'll be right back. Stay with the high power. You welcome back. So the republicans. Want eric swale. Well thrown off of the house intelligence committee because he's been having an affair with a chinese babe bang bang and he. I call her bang bang. I'm just convey what's been going on there between swale well and the and the tricalm spy. She'd fang fang fang. Whatever bang bang. As far as. I'm concerned while while been doing a nasty would bang bang and the republicans wanting thrown off the committee. He's been compromised by a spy and the democrats going bonkers saying this is not right. It's not fair. He can see a chinese spike and bang chinese spy and still do his job in the committee. I have a tweet here by a young conservative woman named caitlin bennett. You know this programs inspired a lot a young conservatives over the years and this may be one of them. Listen to this tweet. this is so hot. If you're a democrat you can get away with anything you want. You can sleep with a chinese spy. You can masturbate in front of coworkers. That's jeffrey toobin. You can cheat an election. you can get millions of dollars from ukraine. that's hundred biden. You can burn cities portland and seattle and you do all that without consequence but if you're conservative you can't even smile at a native american that would-be nick. Sandman is that not a great tweet fabulous fabulous tweet by the way. Speaking of tuban the left is trying to save his gig. They got what's her face. What's her face Tina brown out there trying to say hey. You know what he didn't mean to do it he didn't. He didn't mean to masturbate. Well no he didn't mean to do it in front of people. All it was an accident to camera was on pointed at the pubic area. Yeah essentially was an actually. Didn't know he was doing it. He's there's no reason why. Public masturbation should destroy a thirty year career at a great liberal publication. Like the new york and they're trying to get the guy reinstated. Okay the phones. My adopted hometown sacramento california. This is robbie. Welcome sir. Great to have you here. Hello hi rush limbaugh. Yesterday you had a caller who was asking who the next leader of the republican party should be as if donald trump has faded into oblivion and There was talk about winning more republican seats in the future. What are we gonna play some gigantic game of house if we step past has just happened in this presidential election as if nothing happened if we do not deal with it. We have stepped from what was america into tyranny what will be left other than one gigantic. Pretend game of politics. I don't disagree with that. I'm i'm i'm trying to think back. I asked who would be the republican leader in the the future. I asked that question. I asked love who well caller yesterday was was asking. It was posing that question. There was some discussion on it. And you know and there's been some talk about twenty twenty two twenty twenty four but what's the point of what's the point of discussing any future election if we don't feel what has with what's just happened. Oh well i look. You're preaching to the choir on that. My point about this from the very beginning has been the integrity of the constitution the integrity our electoral system and the democrats are the ones that have blonde it up And if if if this is not resolved and it doesn't look like it's gonna be then. How can we assume at any election down. The road is legit and fair. I'm we're on the same page here but that's still doesn't mean it doesn't matter who's going to be the leader of political movement. You still going to have to have that. I know. I guess. I'm just wondering what's the point. It's it looks to me like if we don't deal with what has just happened. We're just going to be playing one gigantic. A game of pretend pretending our votes means something pretending that we can influence. What's going to happen so what should happen. I mean there have been serious efforts. A lot of people have worked very hard to try to expose this and to fix it. And they've bombed out. what what what. What do you think should be the next step the next phase. Well i think mark stein your guest host with saying on monday. This is the hill. Diane and And i think we have to stand up against tyranny or we're going to be living with it. We're living in with it right now until this is dealt with and we will be living with it continuously until this is dealt with so i i don't i don't have the answers other than to just encourage all of the listeners. We have got to stand up against tyranny. It's is our generation. this is our moment. i don't disagree with that. And i think you'll have seventy four million people that did they voted for trump. they were cheated. They were defrauded. There's no question that that Something really out of whack happened in this election and you know asking them to do more. That's a hill to die on. I understand understand sentiment. But where's the hill and let's define dying. Maybe maybe more callers can weigh in on this point. I do wanna take issue with the seventy four million figure. I keep hearing the seventy million figure the seventy four million take. I think we need to add plus on the end. Because i just have great doubts that that is accurate and that that is high enough. I've heard some people think that my trump said eighty. I'm not. i'm not sure. I've heard that that number about yeah look i. I totally understand the sentiment that you have i. I understand the frustration that you have and to say. This is a hill to die on that if we accept this meaning if we accept biden's president than we've cooked our own goose and we are just living pretend world to use your term where our votes supposedly matter. But they actually don't because we will have been hoodwinked and cheated and so forth and so on short of something that prevents biden being elected. Going for an idol. Gotta take a break back. Hey robby in sacramento. I know you're still out there. I'm gonna tell you what's up here. I have short just after we ended our call. I became made aware of a sound bite from josh hawley. Great senator from missouri who is participating in this hearing today on election frog senate homeland security committee. He said. And i'm i'm i'm i sent this up for the The audio it'll it'll be a wild but we'll get it. He said seventy four million americans. There's the number you you wish. He would say. Seventy four million plus a regardless he said seventy four million americans are not gonna shut up. It is not a recipe for success in this country nor for unity. So you've got josh hawley on your side. You have me on your side. You have a whole lot of people on your side and holy saying the people that voted for trump and most likely elected him are not going to shut up now. This means whatever you want to interpret it to mean a biden. Let's say biden is officially named president by virtue electoral college. His long shot effort bombs. All these point is that we're not going to shut up about this and we're going to continue to prosecute this. We're going to continue to investigate this and we're going to find ways to illustrate that this election was fraudulent. That's one of the things you want to shut this down folks. Do you want to really simply shut this down. I told you how to do it last week. And i'm not the only one by any stretch imagination if you wanna shut this garbage down. It's time for voter. Id it's time for photo. Id for everybody that votes and it's time to get rid of mail in ballots. You do those two things and the only reason. We've got massive mail in ballots. His covid kobe. Nineteen it's being exploited and used for the express purpose of electing democrats. But if you come up we succeeded if we went on a tear and we just made it abundantly clear that we're not stopping until we get photo voter. Id we have to have a photo. Id for everything else we do in this country. The reason we don't have it for elections is because democrats have convinced a bunch of old african americans. It's a government plot to find out who they are to kick them out of their houses or to send them back to wherever they've got them scared to death but until we get to photo. Id voter id. we're not gonna. We're not gonna make serious inroads into cleaning up these elections right now. The the absence of voter voter. Id photo voter. Id is just a recipe. It is a recipe for fraud waving the happen. It's how people can vote multiple times. It's how the dead khun vote and it auto. It ought to wake everybody up at the democrat party. The democrat party is who opposes this why they the post voter. Id so don't wait to get on an airplane. They don't oppose it buy food. They don't oppose it to do it alone for anything except voting. And let's try this headline trump to mitch mcconnell. Hey too soon to give up on election fight so it looks to me. Like trump appears to be pursuing. This long shot strategically that. I described in the first hour. Looks like trump is all in trump. Today told mitch mcconnell that it's too early to stop fighting to overturn the election. After mcconnell congratulated biden following the electoral college. Vote trump. said mitch. Seventy five million votes a record for a sitting president by a lot. It's too soon to give up. The republican party must finally learn to fight. People are angry and boy are they. Robby in sacramento was great. Stand in for the millions of you out there who are fit to be tied over this. I know you're there. I know you're live. I know you're outraged by it. I know you're fed up with a republican just wanting this to end because they want the confrontation the and they just want to move on. It's it's it's just it's it's just easier. It's just easier for there to be no controversy in this stuff and it's just easier to have a guy like biden president. He's an establishment guy or. Get back to normal here. But trump thinks he's been cheated. He thinks he's been wronged. He wants to get to the bottom of it. There's still one long shot to be played and it sounds like he is in favor. Here is franken. Los gatos california. Welcome sir great to have you here. Thanks for taking my call. Yeah i'm one of seventy four million plus that's fit to be tied. I'm calling about the The last caller last night he was really agitated really frustrated and he was passionate to. And i know mr snerdley reminded me that he thought it was dumping on you a little bit. But he's he's speaking for millions of us worse. I'm so tired of the. Gop day are the most worthless party probably in history. And let me. I know who you're talking about this. Do you realize how easy it is for somebody anonymous to sit out there. This guy was accusing me. Not just elected republicans. He was dumping all over everybody. He was accusing me. And everybody else in conservative media of being fooled and taken advantage of kratz. He said do. How easy is it to say. That burning down portland is just a diversion. You fell for and burning down seattle. Just a diversion you fell for. You should have seen what was going on. You should've seen. What were you doing appearing on the breakfast club you got you got you got hoodwink. You got fooled. They took advantage of. It's easy to say that the democrats are brilliant that they're constantly running these these games where they're making fools out of us but that's not what this was and this guy. I understand how easy it is to be mad at the republicans for seemingly never fighting but this was the republican party that was led by donald trump. You gotta you gotta throw him in this month's to if you want to say that those of us in conservative media got hoodwinked remade fools of you. Gotta throw trump in there too. Because trump was the leader of this movement doing everything he could to triumph and win and it. That's the guy in his comment. Just those the only things. He said that that offended me. Bother me he can say what he wants. about how brilliant. The democrats aren't how stupid we all aren't being hoodwinked but that's so easy. That is so easy to say without any kind of backup. The democrats are not that brilliant. They're not that much smarter than we are. And the chocolate and the truck everything up to that. The us being fools is just a little much for me to take. I just didn't have time to react to the guy 'cause he was the last caller as you said. If the gop though had rallied around trump the last four years and gave him even half well. Okay fine don't throw me in that much. I rallied around trump. i was. I've got ross. I'm not. I'm not throwing you in that bunch. I'm not that guy. Did not. But i'm not i'm not but i'm just trying to make a point about the gop gop. If they gave trump to house to support barack obama got from the democrats. We wouldn't be in trouble and amen amen. Yeah let me let me paint this picture about how i feel about the gop. You have a husband and wife and a daughter. The husband rapes the daughter every other night and the wife knows and does nothing about it and the. Why is republican party. That's how i feel about. The republican holy smokes. Now we're throwing rape into the mix. Well hard they don't do anything they sit on their hands and don't do anything it's like. They just watch and the democrats are evil. They're horrible and they get away with it. And why wouldn't they try to steal the election. who's going to stand up to him except trump. he's the only guy to seventy four million of us. We don't count. Yeah seventy four million putts you gotta say plus went plus gotta say plus plus say seventy four million plus seventy four million right now now. You're now you're good now. Look i happen to be the guy that told you people. How trump was undermined in the first six months of his administration. Trump assumed that the republican party would unify behind him. Because that's just what happens. Presidents elected people in the party unite. But they didn't in the house of representatives the first six months of trump's term the majority of republicans in the house believed this silly s that trump had colluded with the russians and they thought trump was toast. They trump wasn't gonna survive as present. They thought he was going to be dispatched somehow. So they didn't join him in the repeal of obamacare and the rewriting of the american healthcare system because they thought he wasn't going to be around. It was maybe six seven months into his first term before they finally figured out that the russian thing was a hoax. You wanna talk about frustrating that was. I can't tell you how frustrating that was to me. I can't disagree with your your assessment. Here of the republican party look at the republican establishment is as much a part of the washington establishment as a democrat. Establishment is never trumpers the right. Throw them throw the ball in the. It's a massive and powerful group of people that have been around since the post world war two year and maybe even prior to that but post world war two is when all of this establishment stuff began and the effort to move towards globalism with the united states in a prominent role began. And then as as time passed the prominence of the united states in globalism began to deteriorate as the globalist realized that if they were ever going to realize their globalist dream the united states was going to have to be de emphasized. It was going to have to be rendered something other than a superpower even though it would maintain a superpower military. They had to do something to take away from the resolve of the united states to act as a super power to act as amara leader and they succeeded and that's eventually what led us trump make america great again. These people beginning in the post world war two era mccain referred to it by the way during the trump campaign. He didn't understand why we were trying to undo the new world order that we ran through war to the fact that we were running. It meant that we had americans who were doing their best to de emphasize the power of the united states in this arrangement that that went on for decades to eventually leading trump make america great again put america first again and you saw how controversial that was and they never stopped opposing trump. They never stopped. Being deathly afraid of trump. They never stopped doing anything. They could undermine trump and his effort to make america great again and to establish the premise of america. First because these people do not think the united states is the good guys. They don't look at the united states having any moral superiority over other nations for political reasons. I gotta take a break. I'm late way long. We'll be back in. Continue after this. Don't go away Righty we are back rush limbaugh. Eib network and day. Two of the republican suck here. Is tom in dexter michigan. Great to have you sir how you doing. Merry christmas and a seventy four million plus does thank you very much well like many my day job died from cove it awhile back and this past saturday. I feel out my last Chip for unemployment. And i'm wondering is the obama era calculation. I thing he put into effect in his first term. Still in there that if you aren't receiving unemployment you don't count in the universe of jobs anymore. In order to keep. That is a good question. And i don't know i i don't know if the obama method of counting unemployment survived or not. I tucker alluded to it the other night which got me thinking about it. I think what you might know about this thing. But are we going to suddenly see unemployment dropped zero. At the end of december or january one whoever gets inaugurated gets inaugurated suddenly unemployment's zero. No that's not real you don't you don't expect unemployment to get down zero do you. Well i can get below three. If i mean there's a lot of people are unemployed. Got unemployed early on alder benefits when outside means for that one but you six nine or the one calculation. I don't count anymore. Three that they they still exist. And they they they existed prior to obama right but when obama the calculation the to split they. They didn't right track in parallel with each other. They count things slightly differently. But i know there was a point where one was diverging much more differently than the other one truck they kinda got back in line because so many people got jobs again in this all. The numbers really did track. But now i think we're going to see a split again where one of them's track in reality and one of them's checking this fantasy number. If the old calculations that affected people who aren't receiving unemployment benefits don't count as unemployed anymore the weeds but well. I don't know that that was specific to obama. Either my my memory. Is that once your unemployment benefits expired. And if you were not seeing as seeking employment then you weren't counted as being unemployed. I don't think that's an obama era. I think that's always been the case now. I would have to double check. Of course there may be seventy four plus million would disagree with me on it. But i'm i'm going to have to. I'm gonna handle jigger. The number in order to get his number below eight percent because president get reelected during employment numbers about eight so he did something that caused him to drop. I just don't remember the specifics. I'm going to have to going to have to check anyway. I appreciate the call. Tom a very much. I think. Unemployment which the unemployment figure that's reported is the youth three and it's not the most accurate calculation you six is actually the most accurate calculation but the youth three is. What's reported a letter. You three and it still only counts people who are still looking for work theoretically and that's that's based on projections as well. The whole point. Bureau of labor statistics in these numbers are largely projections anyway based on various computer models of the past. Because there's no way they can interview. Everybody didn't have a job. They have to come up with these projections based on past behavior. Go fastest three hours in media.
