Which shade of blue will win Washington state's 10th congressional district this year?
"Democrats are united in their fight to defeat president trump, but there's conflict over what the Democratic Party really stands for K. U. O. W. Politics reporter David Hi, takes a closer look at how that's playing out in the race for an open congressional seat in the Olympia Tacoma area in the race for the tenth Congressional district. Both candidates are Democrats, but they have very different stories and visions for the future state lawmaker and climate activist. Beth dolio is running as the further left candidate in the race. One of her biggest endorsements came from Bernie Sanders who was in town earlier this year his run for president. Unbelievable turnout. On the other side Maryland Strickland, she's the former Tacoma mayor and she headed the Seattle Chamber of Commerce here's one of her campaign ads Tacoma was reeling after the last recession as mayor I knew that working with everyone was the only way we could turn things around now I'm running for Congress to work with both parties to help our nation recover and heal, and she landed endorsements from other business friendly Democrats including former Washington state governors, Gary Locke and Chris Gregoire on the issues from healthcare. To the environment strickland sounds more like Joe, Biden than Bernie Sanders, but she rejects the charge that our opponent is more progressive. The definition progressive is actually the ability to make progress and move legislation forward out of Congress. Strickland's dad was a black soldier from Georgia he served in two wars and fought for a country that did not always love him back. Her mom was from Seoul south. Korea were strickland was born before the family moved to the states we landed in Virginia in the deep South. At a time when it was illegal for my parents to be married to each other if she wins strickland would be the first. Korean. American woman elected to Congress ever and the first black person elected to. Congress. From the north. West. House Democrat Gregory Meeks of New York is CO chair of the Congressional Black Caucus political. Action Committee, which is backing strickland. What Maryland seems to bring to the table a balance. which. In this time of of division she is warned there is the bring folks together and that's desperately needed in Washington DC. For her part Beth dolio shares a lot of the same liberal goals as strickland like criminal justice reform and gun control. DOLIO says, she's getting support from a broader progressive coalition labor unions, the environmental and conservation organizations. The Washington Housing Alliance, the Alliance for gun responsibility, the tribes, and before serving in the state legislature dolio was a climate activist. We are really running out of time and we need to elect leaders who make climate change a priority, and she accuses Strickland of being too cozy with. Business especially, on this issue, this moment calls for someone who's willing to stand up to the fossil fuel industry dolio supports the green new deal. That's one of the reasons why she gets the backing of the Congressional Progressive Caucus Representative Pramilla J. Paul. Whose district includes Seattle is co chair. Well, the more progressive members we have in Congress the more progressive policies we can push it's. That simple. The pack is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars, an independent expenditures backing dolio. But what about the fact that Washington has never elected a black person to Congress giant Paul says, these were all important considerations for us but I, you've got share the values of the Progressive Caucus and dolio would represent another I. The first openly lgbtq person elected to Washington. State's delegation U.. Dub Professor Margaret O'meara studies the history of American politics. She points out that Washington used to be a purple state but these days conflict within the Democratic Party is almost replaced competition between the two major parties.

All of their products are made in the northwest and crafted in house allowing for into end control. They offer a full line of topical tinctures and pet products at Lazarus naturals DOT com. Hey It's Patricia Murphy Thursday and this is Seattle now. Mail in ballots went out yesterday and most is our on national politics right now but Washington state's tenth Congressional district has an interesting twist voters are deciding between two Democrats in a minute. K.. U., A. W., political reporter David Hyde will explain but first let's get you caught up. The thirty member committee who will recommend how Seattle spends one hundred million dollars aimed at equitable communities has been made the investment from the city follows months of protests for racial justice. The task force formed by Mayor Durkin has been criticized for straying from the original stated purpose of supporting the black community specifically. State. Health Officer Kathy Lo fi resigned from her post and will leave by the end of the year. `Love' says she's going to take some time to be a mom and reconnect with friends secretary of health. John. Wiseman. is also leaving at the of the year for a faculty appointment at the University of North Carolina And today is the great shakeout. The day we're all supposed to practice and envision we would do if there was an earthquake just as a reminder you're supposed to drop cover and hold on kind of like twenty twenty. Washington might not be a battleground state in this November's presidential election but in parts of the state, there's a battle underway over the future of the Democratic, party the race for Washington's Tenth Congressional district pits to Democrats against each other in the blue corner former Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland and in the other blue corner state representative Beth dolio a former climate activist who won Bernie Sanders Endorsement Kyw's David Hyde is here to tell us how they're squaring up and heads up. There are a lot of birds in David's backyard where he's working. Hi David Trish okay. So first, let's Orient Ourselves. The tenth district is near Olympia and has parts of Pierce Thurston and Mason counties in it. What should we know about the tenth kind of a fun fact if you're newish to Seattle Washington up until recently actually had nine congressional districts but the population exploded. So the tenth got created after the two thousand, ten census. And it's a lot less liberal than Seattle as you're driving south. In fact, from Seattle if you start and picture seattle kind of through a deep Blue Lens, it gets progressively lighter in color later, blue visit district that as you mentioned, includes Olympia West Tacoma places where trump was very, very unpopular but also suburban areas in some rural areas where trump did really. Well and there are a lot of GOP voters here political consultant Ben Anderson tells me he expects forty percent of ballots cast this year to come from Republican voters who only have a choice between these two blue candidates. Okay. So fascinating a Democrat against Democrat clearly putting Republicans in a funny position. Let's talk about the candidates though what are they stand for Beth dolio? State representative climate activist, and she's running as you mentioned kind of as the progressive more left E. candidate in this race she supports the green new deal. She supports Medicare for all She also represent important I. if she wins, she'd be the first openly lgbtq person elected to Congress from Washington state ever Marilyn Strickland in the other corner, she's the former mayor of. Folks in Seattle know her as the former head of the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce she sort of more business friendly running as a centrist kind of think Obama Biden Democrat sounds more like Joe Biden on the issues. Then Bernie Sanders a she also represents two firsts. She would be the first black person elected to Congress from the northwest ever that's Washington Idaho Oregon Alaska Wyoming. Any of those dates, she's also be the first Korean American woman elected to Congress ever. Okay. So a lot of firsts in this race David Yeah exactly. So why is the tent significant? We talked about how it's a newer district based on population growth but how does the battle for the direction of the Democratic Party in our state play into what we're seeing shakedown on the? National Stage Yeah, it's it's one of only two blue on blue congressional races in the country this year. So we've got Democrats paying attention to this race weighing in on both sides for Dolio Elizabeth Warren. You mentioned Bernie Sanders says are two of her biggest endorsers, sanders, of course was in town recently for his own campaign. Dolio also got the Congressional Progressive Caucus, which is Co.. Chaired by Seattle Representative John Paul Gye Tony She got one hundred percent a perfect score on her questionnaire. Deli also gets various labor, environmental groups, teachers, unions, lgbtq, groups, local tribes in her district, and a big list of state elected officials of for Strickland, there's the congressional black caucus groups that are working to get Asian Americans elected to Congress when it comes to. Labor the. Issue is one of her bigger endorsers and just generally speaking more business friendly groups and Democrats in this kind of Bill Clinton Barack Obama Joe Biden Mole. She's got former governor, Gary Locke Chris Gregoire Andrew Yang presidential candidate. At one time. Who you could argue is also kind of one of these business friendly Democrats David Andrew Yang isn't the only big name endorsement strickland is getting. Right, the Vegas was definitely celebrity snoop dog which she found out about on this talk show when the host asked her if she could wrap a snoops on if you rapids nuclear I'm sure he'd be down with so much drama in the LBC Kinda. Hard being the G. But. David I find it fascinating that she knew that snoop dogg's first name was Calvin. I think kind of impressive just for the spontaneity of it, but I'd say, maybe it's a good thing that strickland picked a career in politics. Rap Battles probably not in her future. What does this tell us about Washington's political future and the direction of democratic politics here we're in a blue blue state I was speaking to historian Margaret Amirah at the University of Washington who studies political history, and we were talking about the fact that. especially. In western Washington Republicans have become practically relevant to the conversation in many places like this race here in the tenth, and it's really much more of a case of which type of Democrats Washingtonians prefer. That's kind of where the battle is at right now we're also seeing this divide within the Democratic Party and western Washington is at this point kind of shades of blue there. Many politicians here at the local level and some of the state level that in any other place would be seen as a liberal. Democrat. And and here are relatively centrist or conservative even in Seattle you're seeing this with Mayor Durkan and the Seattle City Council Republicans have become almost irrelevant to the conversation here in western Washington when it comes to governance at least for now and really the question is you know which shade of blue are voters going to prefer? Well David Democrat against Democrat. That's the wild wild west as we know it right now. Thank you very much for your time. Thanks Trish.

What a landmark ruling means for the opioid crisis
"This is a c._b._c. podcast. I feel like my boys looking down as pretty pretty tough deal but i think my son austin are celebrating today. We gotta get help these other kids so i'm very grateful for the court for what he did and the pins on what in these other countries do now that was oklahoma state attorney reggie whitten standing outside cleveland county courtroom on tuesday he was reacting to a landmark ruling casey help fight against drug manufacture sure johnson and johnson and the fight was personal. Reggie whitten lost his son to the opioid epidemic. Johnson and johnson is one of more than two thousand lawsuits lawsuits pending against opioid manufacturers across the united states here in canada. British columbia has filed a similar suit. There was lots happening on this front this week not including the fact that one of those manufacturers purdue pharma run by easily the most influential pharmaceutical family in the world announced. They were looking to settle thousands of these same name lawsuits for as much as twelve billion dollars. Today i'm talking to journalists zachary siegel about all of this and whether he thinks it's good enough. I'm jamie he puts on this is from and that thank you so much for coming back on the podcast your super welcome. Thanks for having me on. Can we start with the lawsuit out of oklahoma on on monday so a judge ruled that johnson johnson was essentially complicit in the opioid crisis. The company was ordered to pay the state five hundred seventy two million dollars in settlement defendants causing your prices as evidence by increase rates indigent overdose deaths. Johnson and johnson says they're now appealing appealing this decision johnson and johnson did not cause the opioid abuse crisis here in oklahoma or anywhere in in this country but but what did the judge find in this case. What are the big takeaways for you. This oklahoma case is actually quite strange because oklahoma has is a very broad public nuisance law and so the public nuisance here is that johnson and johnson's opioid products and their marketing getting in their advertising <hes> caused this wave of overdoses i entering the baby that consists of cost toiling five hundred seventy to one hundred two thousand twenty eight dollars to media leading sense and if you think about addiction i mean it is sort of the public nuisance in that. There's so many problems that stem from addiction not just overdoses habsi h._i._v. and so all these issues stemming from addiction have been sort of in this case linked to the activities of the company lawyers for the state arguing doing. It's salesforce downplayed their painkillers addictive qualities oklahoma attorney general mike hunter heralded the judge's ruling this afternoon the company promoted his products walks through unbranded campaigns by funding front groups and many patient groups met to look like grassroots organizations that spread the company's missing information and can you pack for me a bit more johnson and johnson's role in the opioid crisis so i think for a lot of people when they think opioid crisis they might think purdue pharma right but johnson and johnson is a company that a lot of people might know for making baby shampoo right what was interesting about johnson and johnson is is that they own two subsidiaries that actually grow poppy and they source these raw ingredients of opioids loyd's which is the sap from the poppy plant that we extract morphine from it produces opioid so they were serving the raw ingredients it's to make opioids to other companies the the government the state and oklahoma sort of used this <hes> poppy growing activity to to call johnson and johnson a kingpin in the industry so we're seeing this in this intersection of the old school kind of drug warrior language calling cartel's cartel's kingpins were seen that being transposed onto pharmaceutical companies now you can't sit in corporate suites somewhere for the last twenty years and oversupply the country. There's no question in my mind that these companies knew what was going on at the highest level of they just couldn't quit making money from it and that's why they're responsible. Can we talk about it for a second. So five hundred and seventy two million dollars has johnson and johnson has been ordered to pay this. This is a fraction of what they were actually asking for. They're asking for seventeen billion dollars. You know first of all. I feel like enough money for you and then second of all well who gets this money yes so the first point <hes> no basically johnson and johnson in two thousand eighteen they raked in an eighty one point six billion dollars and if we're thinking about them cutting a check for five hundred seventy million that doesn't dent their revenue and when you when we think about what the justice system does but we think about you know putting people in jail or or finding companies is heavily. It's supposed to be a deterrent to sort of signal to other players like hey. We're not messing around. If you skirt the regulations if you break the law aw you will face the consequences and i don't think johnson and johnson monetarily financially really feels any consequences paying five hundred in seventy million dollars we actually saw johnson and johnson's share price rise in after hours trading after this ruling came through i e spiking by more than four percent present finishing those extended trading hours up over two percent. I should know when we're talking about this case in oklahoma here. <hes> the oklahoma state attorney also launched lawsuits lawsuits against some of these other companies. You've been talking about purdue is one of them. Teva is another one and they chose to settle with oklahoma for a combined three hundred and fifty million dollars dollars earlier this year right so produce settled for two hundred and seventy million and teva pharmaceuticals settled for eighty five million and and and johnson johnson decided to fight. They really didn't think that their activities were part of the problem <music> strong. She's one of our trial. Attorneys acts are that the company manufactured to f._d._a. Approved moved medicines that are essential for treating patients who suffer from chronic long-term debilitating pain. I wanna get into more of these lawsuits in a moment with you but but i i know that part of the significance of this case being basin oklahoma is because it is a state that has been ravaged by opioids <hes> in many ways and can you explain to me what the crisis has looked like for the people there. I just <hes> study that let's opioids stole approximately two hundred fifty thousand years of life expectancy in oklahoma so that is like shocking shocking that so many people in this state died at the prime of their lives these weren't necessarily seventy and eighty ninety a year old dying it was forty year olds and fifty year olds and even younger twenty year olds thirty year olds people with a lot of life ahead of them and it it just finishes with an overdose so fast when the call came on early morning. I had no idea what words i would here and i was totally unprepared. I remember falling to the floor in anguish crying out to god that this could not be real our first forum boy. I always thought that doctors were third to save lives and i think it's it's a very sad to think about what happened. In oklahoma because there is is an aging population there a lot of manual laborers who for most of their lives have done heavy labor. You know a lot construction a lot of building <hes> there's a lot of oil companies out there and these these people gave their lives to to a lot auto companies and broke their bodies in the process and at some point <hes> you know probably had legit chronic pain gene and and when they got a an opioid prescription or when someone they knew got an opioid prescription and they tried it maybe they they understood that these opioids are actually not so not just relieving physical pain but trauma and emotional pain and i think doc what is so important to keep in mind about opioids is that they don't just really physical pain they do a very good job of relieving all kinds of keeping emotional or mental and i know we heard from a lot of families during the trial. There are some really heart wrenching testimony <hes> including you know at the talk of this show. We talked about the state's attorney mentioning a man named austin. This is a former football player austin box three months before his senior season at o._u. A nine one one call that changed everything guy <hes> <hes> status me last night. I take pills and not responding gimmick. His dad testified at the trial. That was really really incredibly heart. Wrenching can't explain what happens to us. Apparently child aftermath is down and it was quite a bit with publicity we heard from so many parents crossed that involves children's uh-huh are similar circumstances sanctuaries us had no idea i had no clue about the prevalence of these drugs and the dangers injures. The number that i saw which is really striking is eighteen million opioid prescriptions written between two thousand fifteen and two thousand eighteen in the state with with a population of four million people. Yeah i mean when we have that many more pills than we do people that should raise some eyebrows which i think really does get get back to this indictment of the system itself. I hope that what what these lawsuits do is spark a long overdue conversation about about the pharmaceutical industry and how we regulate it and how we ensure that laws and regulations are putting the people over profit. I think right now we have a system that is way too deferent corporate power and and people and the health and safety of the public. It's sort of an afterthought. Nobody's strong enough to overcome something like that on their own you thank you. Are you get sick. Can can you feel bad and you're gonna pump. Another handful of pills dislike idea just like everybody else will and everybody thinks it's okay because you get a script from the doctor from you know you can can get it from the doctor. It's okay. The doctor says i can take it yeah. Well people are dying <music>. I understand this case in oklahoma has is really significant because it's the first company that has actually gone to court worked and fought this out so this is the first judgment <hes> but it's also seen as a precursor for a much larger legal effort this fall <hes> when more than two thousand cases from around the u._s. will be consolidated in this ohio quirks and so. Can you tell me more about this. Yes right now. There are are over two thousand lawsuits against basically every player in the pharmaceutical industry and <hes> purdue of courses horses is a big one walgreens pharmacies c._v._s. johnson and johnson all these companies and all these lawsuits have been consolidated into into one big multi district litigation suit in ohio and so this judgment in oklahoma was being being watched very closely by the <hes> plaintiffs attorneys plan to argue the case in ohio trial begins in in october barring any settlement so unless there's some big master settlement that happened soon than these lawsuits. This will begin to go to trial in october. I'm not entirely positive on the details of this and correct me if i'm wrong but there was news this week that purdue pharma might ep negotiating a settlement as part of this consolidated case it could be as much as twelve billion dollars including three million dollars from the sackler family. I believe <hes> the family behind perdue and they would have to hand the company over that would mean the profits from all drug sales including opioids would go to the states and possibly communities unity's that are suing purdue for its role in the opioid crisis so the sackler family is notorious at this point and they've been the target target of a lot of activism and their their family name is on the wings and the guggenheim and there's medical schools named after them they have. I've been <hes> depending on how you see it laundering their reputation through massive philanthropies for for many many years protests like that one may be paying off. Guggenheim says it won't take anymore. Sackler money and london's national portrait gallery turn down a big donation as well and to see this family be willing to hand the keys over to their company and filed chapter eleven like basically stopped playing the game <hes>. I think that's significant i realize that we live in different countries and we don't have the same legal system but just no there were people on this side of the border who were watching this case in oklahoma and who are watching this consolidated lawsuit as well. The province of british columbia has filed a similar suit against dozens of pharma companies including johnson and johnson and purdue and the attorney general of that province david av. He says that he's pretty pleased leased the ruling this week. I guess that's a good precedent. This decision is based on very similar facts that are argued by british columbia in our litigation to have a judge say say yes we do see that there is a serious problem here with how this company <hes> conducted themselves and we do feel that they do need to be paying money out because of the way they marketed these very addictive and harmful drugs. <hes> is a very positive sign for litigation here. In canada canada as as we've discussed before is also in the midst of a of the most deadly drug crisis it's ever faced and and if companies <hes> you know are responsible responsible here in america. It stands to reason that they're also responsible in canada. The i know you've written about how this fight to hold big pharma accountable bowl sort of mirrors the fight against big tobacco and what similarities do you see here so back in the ninety s five major tobacco tobacco companies were in a very similar position that the opioid companies <hes> are in right now so they were facing this onslaught slog of lawsuits from just about every state in the country i think a total of forty six states and many towns and cities in different different levels of government <hes> filed lawsuits against big tobacco and they were also consolidated in this massive case and what what it did was forced big tobacco to come to the table and hash out a settlement so that there wouldn't be you know five years of litigation and appeals in this long process and so that wound up in a two hundred and forty six billion toller settlement that a still being paid out to this day attorney general chris gregoire settlement will curb the industry's advertising and marketing machine funday one and a half billion dollar anti-smoking campaign over five years open secret industry documents and shutdown industry trade groups which we believe conspired to hide the truth about the health effects of tobacco and so if we're thinking about this big multi district litigation in ohio. There's definitely echoes of that big tobacco case are there any lessons that can be learned. Yes definitely in terms of how the big tobacco money has been earmarked spent spent. I think offers a lot of lessons for how to not structure the deal of a potential opioid settlement. I don't think a lot of americans realized that <hes> big tobacco is still paying out billions of dollars every year to the states from this settlement back in the ninety s and so i think i think people would be shocked to learn for example that big tobacco settlement money in let's say new york seven hundred thousand dollars of that went to buy sprinklers in golf carts for public golf course <hes> so yeah. This money has very little oversight. It's supposed to be spent on <hes> smoking prevention on public health on treating cancer on on ensuring young children that money like that spirit of the settlement <unk> has been totally broken so that money basically has just been rained down in a state legislators who control the purse and they've basically recently been spending that money however they want and so if we're thinking about this five hundred seventy two million dollars that may be going to to oklahoma. I'm wondering well okay. Where's that going to go right now. We have no idea how this money is going to be spent over. One hundred people in america are going to die it from an overdose two day. <hes> people need help right now. Those are the stakes that i keep in mind. I know this is something you've touched on a few times during this conversation but just to ask it to you straight great <hes> we're talking about what seems like big pots of money here a potential twelve billion dollar settlement with many states of five hundred and seventy two million dollar the judgment in oklahoma although you did mention earlier in this conversation that a lot of these companies are making billions and billions and billions of dollars in profit and and of course we're talking about you know more than one hundred people a day losing their lives to this crisis. Does this look like justice to you yeah yeah. That's a really good question and i really don't know what justice looks like here. As someone who was interviewed so many families families who have lost loved ones as someone who has personally lost many many friends to overdoses as someone who who really follows every day the sort of devastation that overdose and addiction is causing right now <hes>. I don't know what what what would make things writes. All i do know is that there are ways that we know can benefit and make a healthier the're and happier and safer society that there are ways we can do that. My question is how can we get there. What's going to be the push to to structurally truly reduce the demand for these potent and deadly drugs. If you sort of had the rains power here. What would you like to see happen. I mean luckily i talked to a lot of doctors and attorneys who who i put that question to because like i don't like to be super prescriptive here by talking to them in articulating violating what they want to see. They have told me that we really need to build a better healthcare infrastructure in in this country so rural hospitals for example. They've been closing at a rapid clip and they're going out of business. The plug pulled on yet another other tennessee hospital areas. Only hospital is shutting down. Several hospitals are closing population and some of those towns has dwindled to a size that kit support a hospital anymore in others hospitals either mismanaged or they end up as table scraps in megamerger. If this money could rebuild those hospitals that could save many any many lives if this money could be <hes> building a a more robust <hes> treatment system for so long mental until health and behavioral health have been silo d- out of the sort of mainstream of medical care so if i have cancer i can go to cancer hospital and get the best treatment and things are scientific and they care for you and their support if i have addiction. I don't really have that option. There's there's so much demand for treatment and there's just not enough quality treatment out there so if this money could go to to build a equality science-based treatment system i mean i just think that could go a long way to to to getting at the root of the problems here. Thank you for being you with us today. <hes> it's always really enlightening to get the chance doc d._o. <hes> taxi go.

The only reason why I began to think about it is because I was asked. This is death sex and money. Static the show from WNYC about the things we think about a lot. Need to talk about more than actually having sex. I'm Jennifer Granholm was the governor of Michigan from two thousand three to twenty eleven. She was the first woman to hold the highest office in her state, but she was raised in California where I talked to her in our studio her parents moved the family here from Canada, they met US Bank tellers, but after they immigrated her mother stayed at home with the kids while her dad went on to become a Bank president. However, my mother who's a deep feminist, you know, she wanted me to do whatever it was that. I wanted to do go. Let those guys get you down. That was what she was say on one side and on the other side, she would say, okay. If you're in a competition with a boy, let the boy win. Really? Yeah. However, I won any of my racists with that advice. I will never know. But she's, you know, wanted her daughter to not have to like her be trapped in a generation. Trapped in a generation. That's what I wanted to talk to Jennifer Granholm about what it was like to be a woman candidate and top elected official in her generation, she rose through the political ranks in the nineties and early two thousands. When more women were running and winning than ever. She was also told it was best not to mention she was a woman growing up. She never imagined she'd ever run for office. She was interested in politics. She went door to door for Gerald Ford in high school, but her first time competing for a title was in a very different kind of in you. I'm interested in the time in your teenage years when you got involved in beauty pets. Leave the. So. Well, I think obviously, you learn a fi well, I don't want to ever do it. Get rid of them all that. How you feel about it? Now. At the time. What what drew you to them? I you know, it was I was in high school, and it was a. You know, just a conversation with a couple of my girlfriends. Oh, we should do this. We should do this. Then it'd be hilarious. And then once we're you're in you're kind of you're you're in and it was just anyway, it's really not a part of my life that I am proud of. I'm actually totally grossed out by it personally. Now that being said, I do know I understand that in some areas of the country. This is where women find their identity, and I don't want to disparage anybody who makes other choices. But for me. It was horrible. But pageants did give her a taste for being on stage after high school, she moved to Los Angeles looking to start an acting career. This was during the seventies. Now. Right. So this was throwing the time of bimbos and three's company and all of that. And I had been sent out on auditions in that casting couch thing where was real real. I mean, I didn't do it. But, but it was real in the sense that I went on interviews where people would say, hey, I've got fifty girls outside lined up who are willing to do A B or C. Why should I give this per to you if you won't play the game? So that actually happened to you direct conversations about. Oh, yeah. Suggestions about what you should do sexually get it was wild. It was wild. I was so naive. So I completely didn't realize that that was what was going on. I mean, I find it interesting that you talk about that time as. With embarrassment. And it's also a time when you were. Made to feel small and made to feel like you were expendable and that you needed to put out. So that you're good for one thing or. Yeah. It's it was really it was a terrible experience. Do you feel like when you think about the decision to leave LA and go to UC Berkeley and get your college degree was that a a time of rethinking the woman you when I was like I was so mad about the experience in LA that I basically said to myself. Well, I'm going to go to the because I felt like people were not paying attention to my mind at all. I was reading like philosophy books and stuff. Like, I was like totally interested in ideas. And when all of this, you know, stupid stuff was happening in Los Angeles. And I was so mad about it. I said I am an elite here. I'm on go to the best university. I can get into I'm gonna get the best grades possible. I'm going to go to law school, and I'll show them. They'll remember me one. So here, we are whatever your, but, but I do know that that negative experience. Definitely propelled me in a different direction. Jennifer was the first in her family to get a college degree, and she did well and went straight onto Harvard Law School in nineteen Eighty-four supreme court Justice Elena Kagan was a year ahead of her. I could not believe how many women I met who wanted to be president. I never met anybody any women who had that kind of ambition. I was like, wow. That is amazing. How fantastic to be in this dorm full of of estrogen power. It was awesome. But even back, then you could see people like Elena kagan's, you know, formulating where they were going to go to make an impact in some ways. So it was very cool to see women in those kinds of nascent powerful positions in. How did you orient yourself into those conversations? Did it sound like whoa. Those women are on a different paths. It it sound. Like, this is this is something I've never considered for myself. Well, it was. More than I had not met. I mean, maybe because I was waiting a public school kid. And and there was a lot of women at at Harvard who had been groomed in a way that I have not been groomed myself. And so I was just so surprised and in you know, positively surprised by the fact that there was unfettered ambition on the part of women and that made Jennifer more ambitious and her first year at law school. She ran her first campaign to be editor of the Harvard. Civil rights law review. That's also when she met a fellow law student named Dan Mulhearn the man who had become her husband while we met actually counter 'em of people's express airlines. The people express airlines was the sort of precursor to south west read and get a cedar or whatever your cheap student outlined and they've had a people's express express. It was called people's express, and you pay like fifty bucks gave you a ticket wherever and so all the, you know, we all went on the cheap. That's where we met. We were both headed back to her. From spring break. And and what was it like for you as someone who was formulating the kind of career you wanted to have you're on this pathway of elite achievement at Harvard Law School and falling in love did did those feel intention at all for you at that time in your life. I'm sure that when my husband would definitely say that too because I mean, so first of all I mean, this is what he would say he would say, okay. She was editor in chief of the Harvard silver. It's lot review and he had to find a way in to all of that including studying. So my husband is this great romantic. And so he was very shrewd about how he got me too. Because at first I was not interested. I was focused on the things that I was working on, you know, but he pressed flowers and wax paper and put him in my mailbox or he wrote poetry and put it in there. And he would you know? He would cook. For me. I mean, he warned me down. Basically is what it was. And it turns out such a brilliant move on my part. One of the best moves ever was to fall for a man who is my. Personality opposite. Meaning that if you looked at how he is his orientations in terms of life and how I am. And you were looking for somebody, for example to care for your children. You would pick him in a minute. I'm lists. I gotta be somewhere on time. Come on come on, my mom this. That's just not him. So I feel so fortunate to marry somebody like that. Because ultimately, I would not have been able to be governor. If I did not have a partner who was willing to take the lane of being primarily responsible for the children. And when you talk to when you were deciding to marry what was the way you thought your lives would still next to each other. So we're Catholic and we were prepared for marriage by Catholic priests, and he would ask all of the usual questions at cetera. And Dan, my husband who's from Michigan. I was from California. Right. So he's from Michigan. And he wanted to go when he was growing up. He wanted to be either hope or president that was his ambition. You know, he was the debate champion. He went to Yale as an undergrad believe me being the first gentlemen of Michigan was not high on his list of of things to be. So I thought I would be going to Michigan. We're going to move to Michigan because that was where I could do work in civil rights etcetera. And and that I'd be supportive of him. Of course, if you wanted to run I would happily help him out. So the priest says to us what if the party comes to Jennifer instead and asks her to run, and Dan said, well, it she wanted to do that. I would support for one hundred percent. Coming up Jennifer Granholm talks about what happened when Democratic Party officials in Michigan did approach her about running for office. When our youngest kid was just ten months old. I got these three kids or young then there's no way and I come home. And I told Dan this is happening. He said, are you kidding me? The door only opens once you got to go through it. I got the kids. This is great. This episode is a collaboration with the podcast the United States of anxiety for my colleagues at WNYC studios. Their latest season is all about gender and power in American politics. I especially loved they're very timely episode this season called we've been here before it's about Anita Hill's testimony during Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings in nineteen Ninety-one back. Then there were only two women in the US Senate. Former Maryland Senator Barbara mcculskey was one of them first of all every podium when you go to speak on the four was built for some guy who was five foot ten or six two neither she nor her one female Senate colleague were on the Senate Judiciary committee. That questioned Anita hill. It was very clear that there had to be more women, and we needed to be worn not only judiciary we needed to be when every committee. Someone who was on the judiciary committee questioning Nita hill was Al Simpson. A former Republican Senator from Wyoming. I spoke with him and his wife, and in one of the very first step sex and money episodes, and they told me about the private conversations they had around that time. I just couldn't believe the way L was operating. And I did tell you you all sound terrible. You sound like a bunch of male chauvinist pigs. She's yeah.

This is death Saxon money from WNYC. I'm Ana sale after Jennifer Granholm finished at Harvard Law School, she moved to Michigan where she clerked for a judge worked for the US attorney and eventually ran the law office for the county Detroit is in both prosecuting and defending cases, then when she was in her mid thirties, the party approached her that meant to guys who were longtime democratic leaders Astra to run for attorney general of Michigan. A woman had never held that office. When you run for offices a woman, this is what I was told this is different. Now, I think, but when I was first running for office one I had to cut my hair into a short short super short, and which I kind of like anyway, but but it was it was an instruction. Ray was right. You had to cut your hair. I actually asked my hairstylist because hung when I first ran is in my thirties. And. And so I said committee seven right, right? Can you can you put some gray streaks in at the time? They didn't have product that was good for that. Because it would make me look like I'd blue hair which really be a tree I can't do that. So you know, you you have to look completely asexual, and you cannot have people look at you. And the first thing they think about is how you are shaped what you are wearing you have to be as neutral as possible. So that people will pay attention to the words that are coming out of your out of your mouth. There is no way you should be showing any any boobs. Any? You can't even you shouldn't be showing your toes, you know, you now they're out of office your toes. Your does free those toes who told you to cut your hair, it, you know, you have consultants, right? All around you who who are. And actually I wanted to because I didn't want you know, I didn't want to I wanted to look tough. I didn't want to be distracting. You know, if I had long blond hair. I would be, you know, you don't want the Bimbo thing applied to you at all, you know. So I wanted to do it as well. But they you know, there's a whole series of things that you do when you run for office. Do you remember feeling him, Dan, and resentful at any of the particular instructions, I don't think I mean, I in order to feel him Dennen resentful? I think you have to be more aware than I was just learning. Oh, really is that how you doing? Okay. So if I had had more experience in life, perhaps I would've felt. Resentful were you told to emphasize or deemphasize that you would be the first female attorney general size. It was obvious that I was a woman ride. I didn't have to say that everything you had to d- emphasize. You did the emphasize your children. Really? Oh, yeah. People don't because they were nervous. I mean, I had a ten month old, right? And so they would wanna know. Well, what the hell we're not going to send a woman in there when she's got she's going to be torn and her kids will be at home and who's watching the kids and all of that. So if you looked at any of my literature, you didn't see kids, you know, that you have your husband. You didn't even really see my husband. It was all about this disembodied creature who was going to fight for you. Because you don't want to remind people of the mess that is a family and all of that. And it would make you look to to potentially diverted. Did you have? A serious conversation with your husband to say, this is how our families have to operate differently. Yeah. At that initial decision about running for attorney general this is when Dan stepped up and said, I've got the kids I've got this lane. Don't worry. I'll take care of it. And that made that just completely liberated me. And that meant he became in charge of the family calendar. Very sick days babysitters, right? It's cetera. Right. He's not really great at all of that. He would say that he's really great at nurturing their souls. He's not great at the logistics part. But that's okay, because I'm really good at that. And I'm very efficient at it. But he took care the most important things which was their little hearts, and then feeling you know, that their family was there for them. So they did participate with me like in parades and stuff, but after a few parades. It you know, it gets kind of old, and you don't wanna drag kids to something. They don't want to go to because that's a terrible picture. So bad enough. If your mom, if you're a bad mom was a crying baby, right? Jennifer won a close race for attorney general in nineteen ninety eight and within a year Democratic Party officials were back talking to her about another campaign. This is when the party comes and says, okay, you are the only statewide elected democrat. You've got to start thinking about governor. I'm like, I love this job. This is such a great job. But eventually they persuaded me to to say, yeah, I'm going to run for for governor. She ran in two thousand two and she won she governed while Michigan's industrial economy was in transition, and then falling apart completely the worst came during her second term when the global financial crisis was compounded in Michigan by bankruptcies in the auto industry. Michigan had the highest unemployment rate in the nation during the great recession had the greatest loss of manufacturing jobs during this time, we had the greatest outflow of people leaving the state because of the job situation in Michigan. And so it was, you know, combination of empathy for people in playing tough was what was necessary I would say to anybody who's deciding whether or not to run for office timing is really important. And I happen to be governor at a at the worst possible time in Michigan history. Had I known I might awaited a term or two, but nonetheless, it was I say that's kind of smiling. But I I do think that when your state is in a crisis like that you are decisions have that much more impact. And so it was a privilege to be governor during a time of huge crisis while it was super super hard for obviously people of the state for me to I read in the Washington Post as you're leaving office. You were asked about your approval rating, and you said something like, I hope it's thirty. It's it's really low whatever it is. How did you personally deal with the fact that you had governed during a time of huge structural shifts? Where your personal ability to control was happening for people in your state was somewhat limited some it's funny. 'cause even now you know in the governor's race in Michigan. Today. You would think that I was on the ballot 'cause my image is being morphed into the woman who's running for governor. Now a year like Nancy Pelosi in Michigan exists when Republicans against and you know, I keep thinking. Really, do you really think a governor is responsible for the global meltdown in the financial sector or for the bankruptcies in the auto industry? Do really think that's because that would be one powerful governor. If that is really true. So, you know, I say that intellectually emotionally I still, you know, I feel I feel sad for me. Personally, if I can be sorry for myself. I feel I feel sad that I governed at a time when I am seen as being responsible for the high unemployment rate in Michigan, even though I know intellectually, of course, it happened because of the global recession and the auto industry, and our over-concentration and manufacture in that manufacturing sector, which obviously was one hundred years in the making. I imagine some of those meetings with the auto industry were. There may like maybe a generational gap between you and some of the people you are meeting with for sure that they were primarily men for sure did you feel that all the time, but not just with the auto industry with almost everything. I mean with my counterparts in the state legislature, at least in certainly in my first term that was true. You know with business leaders across Michigan. I'm and I was young I was young person. And I felt insecure myself, right? So I, you know, I had I picked somebody to be my Lieutenant governor who was super experienced in the legislative process, which is great. He could handle that side of things. However, I mean, I I wasn't a show any of that. Right. You had to demonstrate that you were twice as prepared as anybody that you knew it did require me to really study. And no every issue backwards and four. Words in order to be taken seriously. And which I did did you have a group of women friends who you could call up at the end of day where maybe you've had some felt some slates absorbed blew pass them. And they just needed to go. Like, can you believe what happened today you see that in that meeting or well, here's what I would say it's difficult to find appear in one night of interstate. But the governor the women governors in a who are still like Janet Napolitano or Chris Gregoire, Kathleen Sibelius, Heidi Heitkamp when we were Agee's together. We are still to this moment. Fiercely tight know, we'd have slumber parties when we do the national governor's association or the national trades General Association. So that we could like just, you know, vent a little bit and share, you know, share laugh, so those were my peers, and those are my friends still. Jennifer couldn't run for governor again after two terms and afterwards she and her husband left, Michigan for California in part to be near her ageing parents, but she's still active in democratic politics, raising money and advising other candidates. I tell women who are running that. They should go. See? Wonder woman twice the new wonder woman, the new wonder woman because the way she goes about dealing with the curiosities of sexism is as a curiosity. Oh, that's so interesting. But she does not let it stop her from her mission of protecting people. So people want a warrior, they do not wanna victim. And so the more you call attention to that the more people see you as seen yourself victimized. And you don't want to be seen as the victim. You want to be their champion. So it's empowering to be able to fight for them while blowing off sexist comments as though it didn't penetrate your armor one bit. I do think about that is so difficult for people running for office to both project strength and fierceness and make sure they're Inouye undermining their Bill. Eighty. Yeah. Oh. You gotta be likable. Right. That's, you know, men don't have to worry about that so much, but for women if you're not, unfortunately, people still, you know, if you're not likeable if then you're a bitch, and you cannot elect a bitch. And I, but I would say if I'm a bitch on behalf of others. And this is a serious subject. I'm gonna claim that. That's Jennifer Granholm, the former governor of Michigan. She now teaches public policy UC Berkeley and is a commentator on CNN and do checkout WNYC's podcast the United States of anxiety. This season is all about women in politics.

The Rush Limbaugh Show Podcast - Dec 03 2020
"Welcome to today's edition of the rush. Limbaugh show podcast. It is always an incredible honor to sit in for rush. Limbaugh eight hundred two eight two two eight eight two taking the hall mark stein. Who handed it to ken. Matthews hands it to me. It takes three four of us now to fill in for rush limbaugh while he's out doing what needs to get done. Eight hundred two eight two two eight eight two. You might have heard on today. That the the lord's made for all of us is a gift for all of us. And i know prayers are a rising up to god for this country and it's a great time to pray for the spirit of truth and to remember that god is in charge. You may have heard a rumor that the major media as i call them. News programmers programming people and i spell it n. o. z. E. cnn's and the new york times of the world cetera. Who you may have heard that. They decided not to air the hearings. the vote fraud hearings. You might have heard that that jimmy acosta was complaining about the president doing a forty five minute video to explain his case suspicion of massive vote fraud of a voting system under coordinated attack. You might have heard that rumor. But that's not what happened. What happened is that they once again are telling you to shut up that your voices do not matter and if you do a comparison here. This is a fascinating comparison. What does a truck driver gentleman named. Jesse morgan who offered his experience on what happened with his truck trailer. Filled with as he said completed ballots were to go to three states to a trailer votes. it apparently disappeared. He's a whistleblower. A media world that for the past four years has relied on anonymous. Pretend whistleblowers to tell you that. The president elected was a russian asset in russian. Spy this whistle blower. What does he have to game this. There's no book offering. There's no cnn gig lecture series. What does she have to gain by speaking out. Flip that comparison. Or what does cnn or msnbc. What what do they have the game by silencing him by pretending he didn't speak there's a calculus here the more people have to lose in. What's if god forbid biden. Takes office will come the way of this country. The more people who have to lose the more they're speaking out in the more sided media is silencing them are pretending things aren't happening and it's not just truck drivers you know. I see. I see moms in in volunteers at polling places saying i was cursed at. I was threatened for trying to do my job. As a poll-watcher. I was threatened. Which by the way happens to be a crime to threaten a poll. Who's trying to complete their dude. I would think that women being threatened who are going to volunteer. Think that threats towards women in a political process. I would think that would be major news but what. What did these women have to gain by going public with their concerns. I remember the capital hearings. And i don't recall anyone being published or punished for the lies there right what. What do these women now. who are being ignored. Told to sit down. And that's the passive statement from the media visit. Your voice doesn't matter it didn't matter when you were frustrated continually with the gop. That was not brave. There's not fighting for conservative principles or small government but sort of managing decline when you spoke up and said no. We are going to have an outsider. You're told for four years. You made the wrong decision and it's gotten worse over the past year it's not just mom's there's there's retired colonels fill waldron a former combat officers a backgrounds in army information in electric warfare. He points to the sort of anomalies that i with the digital background in fascinated by blocks votes showing up ninety nine point four percent for biden six tenths of one percent for donald trump massive numbers of votes showing up with mathematically impossible. Statistically impossible percentages evokes for one candidate in this. This retired colonel. The news programmers are programming people to not know that this happened in i can recall. I can recall a whole series of anonymous intelligence sources in anonymous sources in the military. I can recall a pencil. Pushing person who is regarded as from the military is regarded as some sort of hero for his whistleblowing. Now he's he's going to go out in the lecture series. And what this colonel waldron have to gang so you might have heard that the news programmers are programming people to not know that the president gave this presentation or at least to not look at the presentation because they're proud of the fact that they're not showing it to the american people but it's you they're not presenting. It's your voice. They're not presenting. If one thing has become clear to me in the past two years it's the most powerful tool at the disposal of the media is what i call the propaganda silence. There are simply people who do not know the amount of suspicious activities. The amount of suspicious data the number of votes. That should not be telling me. Give you another example in georgia. I continue to hear well. That's the second recount and everything's fine and you know what the allegation is not. They got their numbers. No one's saying they did battle with attack. that's not be. That's not the accusation. The concern and the accusation is that some of these ballots shouldn't have been counted. And what do people have to gain by coming out. And saying when. I was a poll-watcher i watched ballots counted thousands of times the same pile of ballots but again flip it. Do not think that the news programmers would get more audience if they had both sides of the story being shown. Do we not think that people would tune in to watch a forty five minute. Presentation from the president of the united states saying our electoral system is under attack. And it's it's not that it's not that. I expect them to do this. I've learned that it's not biased. It's not just leaning the other way. This is a meddling in the american mind but it's just further to say. Don't you think they would get more viewers and of course they would. What does a former attorney general of the state of kansas phil. Kline what what does he have to gain by saying publicly. This is one of the most lawless nzx in history. Does he expect to get a cnn. Gig or book deals. That's not the way the media has set this up the reward platter. Is there for the people who do one thing. Silence you and you compare it across the board. The news programmers have programmed people to believe that. If you step outside your house you'll catch the covert flu and you will die now. I'm russia's audience. We understand it's not the case but you know that there was a poll done that the average american thinks thought that thirty million americans had died from the covert flu. That's an invention of the media. It is a pushing of panic of the media. What does it gym owner or a bar. Owner this isn't staten island. New york bar owner decided to open. They basically raided his property. I think he'd set up set himself up as an autonomous zone like they did in seattle and like they did in new york set up. Thomas zones he said. Hey i'm gonna thomas no no. You don't get to do that. What does he have to gain his life. You're talking here about people fighting for their economic existence. they're the ones speaking out and the same news programmers. Who are programming people to believe. There's no evidence have programmed people to believe that the lockdowns are helping when a side-by-side can personal show you. They are not helping side-by-side commercial. Show you lockdown. No lockdown masks. No masks viruses running very predictable. Course that's always been the case winters a big time for viruses but the news programmers have program people to not know this so you may hear a rumor that they're not displaying the president's voice. Well that's true but the really showing you that it's futile to share your voice. So will you give up you. Won't we will fight for this country. We will fight for truth. We will ask god to stand on our side. Because we're trying to stand on the side of truth. And as dearly departed. Walter williams said freedom is not the natural state of things. I fear that the elitists sense an opportunity to once again rule us will we be ruled or but we continue to speak up. Start her in for rush limbaugh. The it's taught herman in for rush limbaugh on the eib network. Eight hundred two eight two two eight eight to set the scene for you. It's just a a moment to dispel with another myth. We were just talking about the myth that the media is ignoring the voice of the president. United states he makes his case for what he considers to be massive signs of vote fraud and he went so far as to say the election system is under coordinated attack. Now how is that. You would say that There could be a coordinated attack on america. That can't happen here but it's simply can't it's not as if we have to domestic terror groups who've been practicing street warfare in the united states with the full knowledge in basic consent democrats for the past year. A weight that did happen. It's not as if there were two coordinated attempts to murder police officers in seattle washington. Oh wait that did happen. A baseball bat to the back of the head and attempt to burn them down inside a building and tif it tried to seal them within but they would never attack our voting system. That's that sacrosanct. So that's that's got to be another myth. There's there's another myth. The myth is that there's been a lockdown on the economy. There is no no. There's been the lockdown on the economy. There's been lockdown your economy. There's been no lockdown. There has been a lock up of you. The people who are speaking out about vote fraud are the same group of people. V speaking out about election fraud apart me about lockdown fraud. There's a scene. And i wish i knew exactly where this was filmed. It's it's it is a reporter. He's doing a standup outside of a restaurant. That refuses to close down. And he's he's getting ready to do his thing. It's early in the morning. And he's got a stocking cap on. He's going to do a standup report. A business owner stange in defiance. Didn't behind him. There's a dude that comes into the camera frame. It's the business owner in the business owner says. Why don't you tell my story. I'm right here and the reporters stunned. It turns around and says the stupidest thing to this business owner he says. Do you think this is the right thing to do the stupidest possible thing. I do think it's the right thing to fight for your economic existence. You still think this is the right thing to do in the business. Owner says yes. It's the right thing to do in the reporter doubles down. But you're you're you're standing against the governor's orders in the business. Soon reaches a point of frustration. His orders this stint wake up this tyranny. And it is because there's been the lockdown their companies making money hand over fist. But we're told by the left that economic inequality is the death knell of what they call our democracy and what we refer to our republic they tell us. We must erase somehow magically. Make go away student debt. because it's an economic hardship but in areas of our country forty percent of small businesses gone small businesses become big businesses. True wealth is an ownership. True freedom. Economically speaking is in ownership and that ownership is gone. Isn't it fascinating that this reporter had the same sort of response to a business owner refusing to shut down his restaurant. Reporters have to whistle blowers about election. Fraud are are. Are you saying that you saw something untoward. are you saying. You don't believe the authorities. Are you saying that you suspect skulduggery half the nation is enjoying record gains. In the lockdown politicians everywhere are ignoring their own diktats. I could do an hour on politicians ignoring the diktats that they are putting other people under and it's the same. I don't wanna say class of people because they don't believe in putting people in classes but it's the same sorts of people who go volunteer as poll-watchers who start small businesses and the stakes are the same. We have joe biden. If god forbid his ever president united states is already said with the waving of a pan with the stroke of a pen he intends to go to you and say give this random person money for their college debt because they signed up for. They don't wanna pay it now. You have to pay it. You have people forty percent of small businesses disappearing being told yet. But we're going to need you to go ahead and pay that debt and it's the same sorts of people retired colonels and truck drivers who will be paying these debts. Isn't it fascinating that it's the same news. Programmers programming people to believe. There's no sign of. There's no sign of vote. Irregularities there's no evidence not a scintilla of evidence but just yesterday on this program can match. Who's filling in for rush. Limbaugh reminded us about pennsylvania. One point eight million ballots out the door two point. Four million comeback or two point five million a magic increase rand. Paul has reminded us that between the hours of one. Thirty eight am and six thirty. Am president trump lost his lead overnight while the counting stopped. And our remind you of this something else that you may not have heard from the news programmers. Who are programming you to believe that everything's on the up and up in terms of how we're counting co vid. Eighteen international life scientists eighteen van. Rhody paper calling the pcr tests. This is the test they use to determine if someone is covert positive calling. It fatally flawed ten fatal flaws. They want it not used any longer. One of these guys was vp of pfizer. I think research funny thing. Even when people who were at that level speak up and it somehow doesn't match the bodies. Everybody is sacrificing narrative. They get silence to your phone calls. Next is taught him in for rush limbaugh on the eib so which side of the equation which you find yourself the side that's been locked down and locked out or the side that has seen an increase in your net worth in an increase in the things you're going to get on. What side of that are you on. Are you on the side of the bill. Payer or you on the side of those who've been forced to sacrifice or those who are done sacrificing a lot of restaurant owners are and a lot of bar owners. Jim owners are done sacrificing. Now they're going to fight. What side of this do you find yourself. And as we look at this possibility and it's it's a strong. Let's be honest with ourselves right. There's a very narrow path for the president to get in front of the supreme court with this evidence. I would just say g- into the court or either you will make a decision one way or the other by deciding to not hear the case is deciding to say it's not worth being heard and to the supreme court you will be telling fifty percents of americans you are not worth being heard in. You'll be choosing economic sides. Because there are sides that are going to benefit. If god forbid biden is president sides that are going to benefit from big government grabbing and taking and then giving to others and using what are the opposite of rights the bill of rights restraints government from doing to you the image of kama heresay and her vice president. Joe biden is possible vice. President is that the government must do to you when donors say do to them. I keep looking forward to. Jeff bezos writing probably twelve to eighteen dollar check to all the small businesses that his lockdown. Because i've seen a mass for the lockdown to end maybe twelve eighteen billion brings some of the small businesses back to life. Don't run it through the government. Jeff give it directly the some of the businesses business owner so they can come back jeff and you can earn it back with carried interest on your investments and god bless you for the for the invention of amazon now. How about if you do what you pretend you are about. Which is right. The little guy with ford of that greg in houston texas. You're on the rush. Limbaugh program is taught him filling in good morning. Greg high taught I just wanted to say you're really picking on college kids with the student loan debt. You don't i mean. I graduated in two thousand nine those the worst recession since the great depression and it was tough. There wasn't a lot of jobs out there for any of us and for you to make it seem like taxpayer. Money's only gonna go to help out college. Kids pay off their student loan debt. You not much on. He gets wasted. How much taxpayer money gets wasted on. Bail outs just a former bail twenty billion. I didn't see you. You know rowan up your listeners to get mad at trump bailout farmers so mad at bailout student. You didn't hear when i talked about the bail up about ideal you weren't listening at. I just tuned in about ten minutes. So it's not. I apologize all right so you have no idea what my position on the bill altruism. I just heard you rowling up your listeners. Saying that college kids are going to be paid for. People shouldn't span smart. Oh so is riling people up. I believe yes. I feel like. They're still rallying people up about the so when you When you called me when you were going to take on that college debt what did i say to you. Basically i felt like i heard you saying that i hold on. I'm sure understand me a greg. I'm not gonna hang up on you. I want to have the conversation. Greg when you're getting ready to take on that college debt and you called me at home and he said hey. Todd i'm thinking about taking on debt for college. What advice did i give you. Typically you talking. About what advice did you give me. Yeah you know when you back in two thousand nine. We decided to take on that college debt. And you called me at home to get my opinion about that. What advice did i give you in two thousand nine. Yeah are you speaking of a hypothetical. Because i didn't talk you in two thousand nine. Wait so you call. You didn't call me and ask my opinion about taking it now. I just heard it now. Oh okay so. I'm trying to figure out where your debt alley listen to. You're you're on russia's greg. I'm i am trying to illustrate what. I consider to be an absurdity here okay. I'm trying to figure out where. I became a cosigner to your life. When did you become a cosigner. The farmers bail out this early last year. Because the trump tariffs. When did you go into that. I'm sorry are we going to go back to that. Twenty eight billion or are we going to go things that get bailed out right. So are we going to go back to you. Don't know my position on bailouts. We've established that. Let's talk about your situation. Let's talk about your situation. What what what did you pursue in school kinesiology. I wanna be a pe teacher okay. How much money did you take off for that. I really wasn't even that much tighter. I had like five thousand dollars student. Loan debt. It's not even that much. But it's the principle that y'all single us out like the government only bailing out college kids when the government bails out people all the time and i don't hear your side complaining about it only when it affects people on the left. I feel like you're picking on college kids that you think we're liberals interesting. Did you mailing out liberal. Were you on. Hold while i was just talking about jeff bezos. I vaguely heard it. I'm actually working right now. Oh wait so so wait what. You're working right now as a pe teacher no no. I don't know. I don't. I didn't a long story while i'm not an easy. What are you doing now. I worked for a part time. It's not something i'm proud of. What are you doing now. I deliver pizzas. Aren't you top. I needed a job over the honestly. It's it's a long story. I have one if you really wanted to go into. Like i got into salt charge me and my dad got in a fight and i feel like that's holding me back on a lot of you know real jobs that i could pursue with my degree but because i have that you know domestic violence charge it looks really bad on paper but it was just me and my dad getting a fight like that happens. I just got in trouble for so got the best things. Did you get the best of you in the fighter. No i won't. That's probably it's not is the fight that goes to jail wins. The fight are he started. It sounds like i mean it. Sounds like you're pretty buttoned up and kinda got things together. So i can understand why you'd find it offensive that i would be asking why i should pay your bills and let me present this to do you think on your taxes. Go towards and fifty cents. Oh did you wanna talk about economics because we can do that too. But i just wanted to get this across real quick How much money do you think cost me to not go to college to drop out and my first year. 'cause i got i got done with football. How much i. I think that people who graduate from college should be should be the first line for debt forgiveness. The people who just went there our year and a half dropped out. I feel like those should be. And maybe i'm being a little bit of an elitist right there but i actually like what they got what they paid for. They got a graduated college student. And i just happened to graduate in two thousand nine which you remember. What are the worst officials. We've had a great depression and there was no. I guess. I guess where. I'm just i find myself just lost here is i didn't couldn't afford college after. Football stopped and and i dropped out and it's funny i have never gone to someone. And said hey. Could you pay back my debt. Because i never took any out. Because i went the route that you're taking now was working in jobs that are manual labor. I did that while. I taught myself a skill and that skill involved radio and then from radio i said man. I don't know if i want to work in radio for the rest of my life should teach myself computer code. And maybe i should learn to do computer code and then i hooked up with some really smart people because they had an idea for a company. I worked for a year for free borrowing third day old chicken from convenience stores barring three bucks for my now wife so i could buy three day old chicken because a convenience store guy held up for me in between donating blood from time to time and working for free for years to build a company then got venture capital backing and then i paid employees before a paid myself for the first year. So i guess you know i just. We took a different path. But what i'll do is ogle through an add up all the money that either work so hard. it's almost like resentful. It's like well. If i had to do it this way. Nobody else get an easy way out. Hey what's easy way out. You know what you just inch a great question in my resentful no. I don't resent that. You took out five thousand dollars in alone so that you could go deliver pizza after getting an assault charge by beaten up your dad. I'm not resentful that at all. I'm just saying greg when you call and you make a point like this. Maybe next time do a little bit more thinking about what the long term economic impact of paying off or making disappear. Student loans are. Let me ask you this question. Do you think the pizza place you work for. Would charge more or less for pizza. If we guaranteed everybody in the nation got free pizza with. they suddenly cut their rates. It seems like you're always willing to cut out the little person. I why are you so worried about big visit or even at white people that only not that they were or we are back to where we started where you forgot to listen on. Hold as i just told. Jeff bezos to hand over twelve to eighteen billion dollars great. I'm the who who what's the peace. Of plus you work for arcos arcos pete's on friendswood texan in friends with all right. So marco's pizza. Greg is right now on the phone instead of delivering pizzas but he style. They buttoned up and we should pay college debt. Greg thanks for calling russia show. It was very entertaining. Good luck to you. I do hope. And i pray. Honestly do greg that you start to take responsibility for yourself because then i think he might have a place to go. God bless you greg. Russia show is taught him in for rush. Limbaugh this is for. We just had greg on. Who beat up his dad. I wonder if his dad my call in so we just said greg eleven years ago college student five grand hasn't paid off the debt yet but he is sort of delivering pizzas and his assertion. That i'm just all obsessed about college students now. It's not the individual college student. It's this fact. I just use this example. If the if if horford or colleges like that wanted to provide free college legitimately free. You know how they could do this. For real. just take their endowments and simply apply. The interest earned from the dow means. They could give everybody free college in perpetuity bothering the tax. Payer got thirty nine billion dollar endowment but they'll still take tax monies to put people in college. The reason that college rates are up is because they're crony. They're they're they're fake. Fake nonprofit fake academics. That's a profit center in there tied into government largess and the reason that i was picking on basil's in asking him for twelve to eighteen billion for small businesses is because bazo says stocks have skyrocketed during. What is for you a lockup and for him a free up. It is a side by side comparison. Big business win here and there. The people with the lobbyists. They're the people who donate to democrats. Have you seen the shift that it's big business giving too big government because don't tell me they don't look at china go. Wow that's cool. They can force people to purchase their products. Basil's has a de facto monopoly on on bringing people things in their houses because of the logistics that he built in his genius and what he should be saying right now. Jeff basil's if he wants to be consistent is hey listen. If my delivery drivers can operate in my warehouses can operate my business. Office can operate in the small businesses can operate. Hey jeff what about what about it. Should the economy opened up or should it just amazon are you willing to pay a royalty to small businesses. Jeff i say twenty five cents on every amazon dollar goes directly to small businesses most impacted. Let's do it this way if people buy food items from you. Twenty five percent goes to restaurant associations or two restaurants. Say jeff call the show eight hundred eighty two to eighty to make the announcement here. The big win big. Pr win for you. Let's talk to paul in columbus ohio. Paul you're on the rush. Limbaugh program is taught him and filling in. Hi paul. good morning todd I wanna say right off the bat that i want to pay my loves. The reason i called though the top achievement of the trump president trump's administration will be and it's actually in process of the exposing The fraud in the american electoral system and his restoration of the integrity of that same electoral system. Yup i think that i would expand your point and i agree with it. I think that president trump donald john trump has had tried some inexorable changes to our society. And i think they're very positive. He has unmasked that there is a deep state and i was an easy with that phrase because it sounded conspiratorial to me six years ago five years ago and now i will tell you. The deep state extends into the offices of so called public health officials who are doing nothing for public health and man. I listen i have to be careful because i can obsess about the covert flu. I read about at forty hours a week. I'm obsessed with this deception. It extends to their so. The president has unmasked. That's the reality all the way up to the top of the fbi. He said mass. They're willing to lie to a court and they don't get punished. They're willing to lie to those. Not kid ourselves that the supreme court the most powerful court i would say the pfizer court john roberts private court which is a secret court appears to be more powerful because they can spy on american citizens based on lies. He's exposed that he has taken the mask completely off of big news programmers. Where we know that they are election meddlers. He's done the same with social media. He's them fully nakedly and then their desperation to get him out of the way for whatever's next like the you know joe biden prayed around this website which is build back better dot gov which is interesting because that's the same thing all the the big government people around the globe saying hey let's build back better now that we've destroyed everything. I think that he has surfaced that. But now here's here's the challenge though. Paul is if if god forbid the president doesn't get a second term. He has pushed this ball up into the air. The net. what do we do right. it's set. He's a great personal cost. He has what do we do with it. If god forbid the president is not in a second term do we do with that ball above the net. Okay pad are back. He needs are Could get his back. And i would say this that. What the put is the ball up above the net like the volleyball. I don't think volleyball but it's up there. I think the put where we slammed that ball back down as we say no. There's no new normal rush. Limbaugh has said our goal must be normal. Not the new normal. That's what we need to push for and pray for and demand out of this nation policy. Great call conroy. Show taught him in for rush. Limbaugh the sought herman in for rush limbaugh. The network talked to lee in clinton township michigan. Lee you're on russia show. It's taught him and filling in highly. Hi todd i'm one of those left wing liberal progressives who watches all of trump's speech yesterday and that's sydney powell news conference yesterday in atlanta. So i try to understand both sides. You the georgia election for senate to run ups for. Us senate might turn into a disaster. Republicans are working at cross purposes. They're attacking republican affect elected officials and they are questioning the validity of the vote. I think they might blow to senate seat and turn it everything to the democrats in the us senate next year. Yeah i think that in georgia. I confused by the strategy of not voting for republicans in order to own the libs. I would say this there is the the mayor of real might tell us that there is a reality. And i don't mean to speak for rush. Rush speaks for rush. But i would say that. That seems to be an odd strategy for me because joe manchin. I've heard people say well. Joe manchin or protect snowy won't if the votes tight job if the democrats in georgia please please please. I am suspicious of the election. Down there as i could possibly be end in pennsylvania and in wisconsin. And please please please. Don't give into the idea of losing his winning. Please go vote for these republicans. And let's concentrate on trying to clean this up and continues taught herman in for rush limbaugh. The demand for telemedicine grows so does the need for connectivity. Five g. meets that need qualcomm remains focused on giving doctors and patients superior security rich five g. Connectivity learn more at qualcomm dot com slash invention age. I'm in college. It chilling in his dorm room at the university alabama. You're just happens to have a lot to say when. I say a lot to say any logically about everything. Cj i'm the host the brand new podcast cj pearson on sensor now this isn't gonna be typical louisville gas. And what i say. Well sometimes that gets me in trouble. Why because i couldn't care less not being glued correct respecting anyone safe-space because until the world's all willy nilly what the app was his safe-space what the hell was this idea. That feelings mattered more than acts. We went from a world and actually value true to award people. Now make the argument with schrage phase. There are more than eighty genders a world that shame people for loving america too much. I'm tired of it. And that's why i'm here listen the cj pearson uncensored every thursday on the iheartradio app apple podcast forever. You get your podcast in. Wanna think mr limbaugh in the network for the great honor filling in on the world's biggest radio show eight hundred two eight two two eight two. You care to join us and today is in fact the day the lord is made and if there is a season for prayer revival this this would be it the spirit of truth i would pray would come upon this nation because it's simply not here and this audience. This rush wants out of the kindness of his heart. Did a A little audio bit for me. Whenever celebrating an anniversary of my radio show which airs the mornings and k t t h in seattle in. He very rushie in fashion referred to me as the most effective kiss up in radio which is one of the reasons he allows me to host the show when he's not in and i loved it my audience. We have this live show. So i see these things. And i've heard mark and ken and en- derek all of us want to honor this program and you in building this program. I don't know if you know how lucky you are in. What a small group of people you are. I mean it's a huge audience. Eighty million people to understand. The new numbers are but this is a special notice to the information that is given here. Because it's been consistent. I heard mark can both make this point. That's been consistent all these years. A consistent point of view it hasn't changed with the times we live in and this is so important because we live in a time that to me is the the age of disinformation and it is so incredible to watch the social media platforms which should are publishers. There's there's nothing platform ish about them. And because they're because the publishers. They should be liable to the same lawsuits that all other publishers are. It's so amazing to watch them. Pretend that they are cracking down on misinformation one. What they're actually cracking down our on our core facts and there is a comparison between the big lies about the covert response and the big lies about the election and prior to the election. And i want to try to compare these for. Do you know that. It's a pretty solid facts now that the covert flu has been in the united states since december of two thousand nineteen. We know this because of blood samples in antibodies in blood. So that point do understand how important that point is. In relation to the percentage of death or the death rates from the covert flew the world health organization is finally admitted that the death rate is twenty three one hundreds of one percent to three percent and it might be less than that. It could get down to one tenth of one percent. Because the longer it's been in the country the the the the the the lower the death rate is that key piece of information you now have. Most of your neighbors don't because news. Programmers are programming people to believe the opposite cases cases cases. Desks desks desks. Their programming people to believe nonsense compared to the hunter biden story. Compare that heard rush do a master monologue on the things that would have changed the outcome. Eight to ten stories about hundred biden would have enjoyed biden would have changed the outcome of the election. Had they been known or changed up to eight percent of people's votes democrats. The news programmers programmed people to believe that discussion of hunter biden's laptop was a conspiracy theory. When in fact we know it's very very real. These are editorial decisions that they're making to pick and choose important information for you to have it. Here's the commonality hiding the death rate from you in power the forces of lockdown because you are locked up. Big business is flourishing. Netflix has record record revenues. Meanwhile local theaters are being destroyed. Case point number two this is. This is a fascinating discovery around the pcr tests this. This can seem really geeky. So make this as simple as i can. I've been reporting forever. That the pcr tests that determine if your copay positive they return about ninety percent false positives in. It's because they magnify the dna a trillion times so they can find the single tiny shred of a leftover viral fragment from a so called dead virus. Now it's worse than that. Michael year it was some other other scientists. Michael was a vp. I think of pfizer in very very senior scientist big published a paper eighteen of them. Peer reviewed paper saying there are ten major scientific flaws with that test that render it useless. It's not telling us if there's positive covid cases it's telling us someone may have once had a cold. Someone may have once had a flu. Those are being applied to death rates. Now compare that technical detail flaws that the news programmers won't tell you about the core test related to covert positively compare that to the dominion voting machines. I watched part of a conference in two thousand sixteen in san francisco a critical infrastructure conference. There were three techies on this panel. This wasn't a political conference. No one knew at that point. The dominion would be in question in relation to massive electoral fraud in our country. These techies were talking about how ridiculous the dominion system is how hackel it is that. Of course it's connected to the internet. They went so far as to say that script kitties could get into the dominion system with a script kiddie mean. It means that real hackers figure out how to get into a system then they publish what's called an exploit. It's like a cookbook hacking cookbook. Except all the script he's have to do is copy their methodology and maybe even copy and paste it and go get into the dominion voting system. There's holes in that system that have been known about well since two thousand sixteen at least in fact one of the participants on that panel said. That's how they hacked the state of arizona voting website so the media news programmers. Don't want you to have that bit of information. They don't want that to enter into your calculus so when the president is a forty five minute presentation any features by the way some some data from my friend justin heart who's just an independent data analyst. He and a lot of other people have looked at the voting data and said no twenty-five thousand votes taken from trump. Here twenty five thousand. They're twenty five thousand here taken from from from president trump and joe biden. That's algorithm ick. This is an algorithm when that's not in people's calculus and they hear these claims as filtered to the media they think our there's conspiracy theory like if you tell your friends. Are you sure you're positive. Test is positive. Oh come on hogue. Are you going to believe these conspiracies. The president deserves great credit for forcing their hands to get this desperate to make these many obvious mistakes but it is this audience. Who knows these things. If god forbid there is a biden presidency if god forbid that happens and it looks like it might we have an indelible duty to the we have an indelible duty to continue to seek it and to promote it and to present it to people let me give you another example teen suicides are through the roof trae for our children. Pray for teens in parents with kids who have mental stability challenges pray for people who prior parkas didn't have those challenges there shut down and yet there's this there's a new study in science direct that shows that people who live with their grandkids have exactly zero percent greater chance of getting the covid flu. Repeat that in families where the grandparents live with kids who attend school. There's no increase in getting the covert side by side. Were families with kids and grandparents in the same home and the kids do not attend school. There is no difference. The kids are not giving the kobe to their grandparents. And yet. If you get your so-called news which is spell in the case of cnn and msnbc in the like. i spell that in osa like booze. You're being made drunk on disinformation and it helps the forces of the lockdown like the hiding of the hunter biden story helped the forces of big government in the lockdown because big government and big business. They're not locked down. We are locked out. It's fascinating that all of the selective information all of the propaganda of silence benefits that one side. It's up to us if god forbid president. Trump doesn't have a second term. it is up to us to continue to push for these things. We will not accept what they want us to think of as a new normal we demand actual normality because we are born free. United states citizens. Not subjects taught him in for rush limbaugh. It's taught hermit in for rush limbaugh on the eib network. We were just talking about this really tough time for families and one of the best things you can do for. Your family is to preserve cher. Great memories many good times get shared in pictures and videotapes old films. When you use legacy box to digitally transfer them you make it really easy to share those again rush. Limbaugh loves this company legacy box well. The holidays are fast approaching. And some of you may already have been deeply immersed in holiday parties so forth when you get together with the family. You know what's going to happen. Somebody's gonna start snapping pictures videos. Probably everybody is because everybody has a phone now that takes instant video instant photographs very very high quality audio as well. And you know what's going to remind you. It's going to remind you that your family's got a bunch of those same kinds of memories on media. Nobody can watch anymore. Family got together back in the eighties. When vhs and betamax for big may have to go back to the seventy s for that. Some people may have slides from slide projectors or super eight film. Whatever it is as you're making memories of current family events you're gonna realize as all kinds of old family get togethers that you have films and photos and stuff. You can't watch anymore. Well now you can if you have a bunch of old stuff on. Vhs or betamax or super eight film for if you're my dad was big on slides. He loves slides in the projector and clicking through explaining picture. Quality was great and slides and the big projector. But who's got that anymore. Nobody so what you do. Legacy box dot com slash rush. That's the website. These people will take all that old stuff that you can't watch anymore. And they'll transfer it to dvd or thumb drive or a downloadable filed a cloud server or however. You wish it so they send you the legacy box. It's shielded and protected so that whatever you put in there will not be damaged in transit. Two weeks later all of it comes back to you however much. It is high speed dubbing maintaining original quality on thumb driver. Dvd that you can then categorize copy duplicate give to anybody. Plus the stuff will stay forever. It won't disappear on formats. You can't watch or us anymore. Legacy box dot com slash rush. And right now you can save sixty percent off the regular price and even better deal than normal. Normally it's forty percent now. Sixty percent off. Legacybox dot com slash rush. A lot of. You've got these things and you keep thinking you're going to do this. Transfer yourself someday. You won't take too long. You don't have the equipment. Legacybox dot com slash rush. They do and they'll do it inside a two weeks ago back to you. Thank you rush. Appreciate that We've been talking today about a series of selective bits of information that the media the news. Programmers are programming people to have in programming people to believe. Meanwhile they they. They want to criticize the president during a forty seven minute presentation of putting his facts on the table. Here's his data. Here's his selection of anomalies. Here's his selection of dead people who voted or ballots. That shouldn't have counted or more ballots. Being returned to an entire series of things that in a sane world would cause anybody to say. Hey we should probably look into this right because maybe we don't want half the country now completely discounting the elections i. I can't overstate how important that is that the supreme court take this case and whatever however it arrives that it be done on video and i mean live i mean so the american people can watch it and i mean close up. Look at the evidence in close up. Looks at people answering questions about this. Because what swings in the balance is if voting isn't real what what what. Then is the alternative that people half so. I think it is absolutely incumbent upon the president to press this issue particularly taking into account. What's been done to him. And i always want to remind people that what's been done to him as actually being done to you that if we tried half the things the fbi. Did you know in in pursuing the ability to suspend the president. I tell you this. Factually if you go to court for a traffic ticket and you present false evidence to a judge and the judge. Hey where'd you get this and you say oh i had someone forge it judge. Say what by. Just there's a guy. I know who's really good at forcing stuff so i i had them forward. You could be there for a forty seven dollar traffic ticket. You are going to jail if you watch. And we watch as powerful people get away with lies of the magnitude that they told about president trump to get to us in the vote that you guys did for the president of the united states. We become a low trust society. Low trust societies sink quickly because the dynamic is this most people don't follow the law because they're afraid of getting caught breaking it most people follow it because it's a societal norm so we need to thank the president for continuing to fight and we need to pressure the supreme court to let them know we know not taking. The case is also making a decision. It's also participating in this stock to civil up in hartford maine sibley. You're on the rush. Limbaugh program has taught him and filling in high. I hope i'm saying your name correctly. Sybil are high cod. It's sabella sabella by apologies. Thank you for calling bill. Yes thank you for your zealous way of communicating the truth. I appreciate that I wanted to tell president trump. don't give up the ship. don't let go of the helm. don't give up the ship. Stay with the ship guarded with your life. I wanted to pass that on to him and all of us during this time which is very difficult and lots of pressure to make changes and look to a new administration. And it's just right now. It's time to stay right in there. Good and strong sense that the president is weakening at all not at all. No and what do you think. What do you think the best possible scenario is out of this. Do you think he has a chance to see this. These do you think is a chance to see these elections overturns. Do you think he. Would we get a revolt. Think this goes. I think that there's plenty of time between now and inauguration day and anything can happen. And i i'm a believer in god so i'm open to anything that might happen along those lines. I appreciate the phone call. If there's any radio show the president's going to hear it would be the one that he he guests toasted for three hours. Mind blower biggest town hall in the world that i agreed to the president into to the team the core team we're watching. We watched a facebook video. We're watching the evidence and there's a lot of us in the democrats want to make the point that we all just we wanted just all scrapped. Here's what i want. I want a full hearing of the evidence to hearing that we didn't get around the pfizer court lies. We didn't get a hearing on that. We didn't get a hearing on the ukraine stuff and those lies. were not still not getting hearings. On the completeness complete story around the covid demand full complete transparent upfront hearings in front of the supreme court. And in that way then i can. Once again trust the elections taught herman in for rush limbaugh. Please remember the treasure trove. That is rush. Limbaugh dot com to renew my rush twenty. Four seven subscription. My credit card are expired and renew that treasure trove of rush twenty four seven and rush limbaugh dot com in the limbaugh letter particularly right. Now you can lead a special note for rush rush limbaugh dot com at the top of the page and i've heard him remark about how much those mean to him to be able to read these presumably when he's on treatment week in and hearing from you not a lot of due to needs the work not a gentleman who needs to come into work everyday given wealth that he's built because of the value. He provides to us on into advertisers. But please do leave him a special note there speaking at this and i don't know if russia's wear this brock obama has come out and said russia's right and this has been years in the making i mean when i read this my eyes popped for for for obama to say obama style that well The fact that rush limbaugh is is. Turn to your left right. No he did. Rushes told us for years. Democrats can't run as what they really are. So they put on this facade. Will barack obama has said russia's right. Don't go out running on defend the police political reports this that it is obama's opinion. The defunding police movement the anti cop rhetoric. And it's by the way not just rhetoric is what lost them. How seats and god willing. This allows republicans. Hold the senate and the state. Legislators legislatures and how many seats is in in california. Now that this red wave has taken out for republicans in california and yes. I think a lot of the rhetoric has to do with this the anti cop rhetoric and then when president trump. Oh that's right. That was the anomaly everywhere else except for these five places and then every other time of day except for one thirty. Am to six thirty m so it was a red wave around the country. Fifty states except for five well during a five hour period and then some counting of ballots. It arrived without postmarks without signatures. But there's no reason to doubt any of this. I would tell you this. The what obama is saying is look go attack let let black lives matter inc. Seek to kill cops black cops and other cops. What what antifa do that work. You can just you. You can just pretend to have sympathy for people but don't come out and say that we want to destroy the country. This is basically what obama saying is. Please don't communicate the fact that we intend to destroy the country. That's why you know with obamacare. He he's showed when he intended to do it. Was the death knell for private insurance. Because remember this particularly as you're being told. Oh did you wanna fly on united airlines. You'll need your covy pass. You'll need to show that you've been shot up with this vaccine and that'll end there it. They will expand that program. It's not like they'll tell you to get shot up with the things that'll that'll never happen. The number expand that program the never look at your body is an operating system. They want to build apps on. They'll never do that. Remember this. They control the healthcare. They control you. That's the golden ring of socialism and communism and goodness knows they would never leverage a flu that has been in the united states since at least december two thousand nineteen to get that done. Goodness knows they would never leverage a notoriously insecure system like dominion to achieve such an end. Lord knows a political party that allowed riots in the street in attempts on cops lives and successful attempts to take the lives of cops they would never stoop to the level of massive election fraud using a system dominion. It's my understanding from testimony that the dominion system doesn't even keep logs that you could audit so that's like saying. Hey i just bought a new car can get a receipt. Yeah we don't. We don't do receipts. Can i get my name on the title. No we don't put people's names on titles. So if i drive the car off the lot. What's to stop me from getting arrested this very much like that stock to jr in austin texas gre here on the rush. Limbaugh program is taught him and filling in high. Jr you toxic chemical appreciate. Love shown my pleasure. Thank you rusty show. is russia show. Let's be clear about that. Show and best wishes to him certainly I'm just i'm a supporter of donald trump in very frustrated with the election results. But i'm also frustrated with when people talk about it what does fact versus fiction what is fact versus an opinion as far as what is real evidence. One of the points. I've heard is that. There's no way you'll buy them could've got eighty million votes. You didn't run. He's got a great candidate. Senator and i would put forward the contra argument. I think there's at least eighty million people out there that really dislike donald trump for whatever reason but they went to to the border with and said i'm gonna vote for anybody who's running against donald trump because i don't want him in the opposite order just wanted to see what you think about that know. Obviously there's people with trump derangement syndrome and then there's people who just have honest disagreements with trump. And they're and they're not deranged in their those people but let's run through a thought exercise together so the united states election night were seeing the reports. Come in and the president is leading and all of these key states and so those people who hate the president. They're outnumbered by the people who are either voting for him or you know love the president or can't stay in comma harrison her vice presidential candidate. Joe biden's teleprompter. So that's that's going on. That happens all the way up until about one thirty in the morning when all those states. Hey we're going to stop counting. And then the votes come in at record proportion four biden. Some of them algorithmic li like in georgia in pennsylvania. Georgia was box of twelve hundred votes in pennsylvania blocks of two thousand that appear to be algorithmic inserts right. This happened in raw data in a natural sense. That stops it about six thirty in the morning. What do you think the odds. Are that only in those hours. Did the ballots come in for people who hate president trump in only in those cities in those states in those hours that five hour block of time. What do you think the odds are that you think that could happen or you think it's the odds are pretty against that. I'm against it. I think it could happen. But that's just an observation. It's logical to me in what you're saying how. What is the tangible evidence that we can show to prove that there was actual front. That's my concern. We talking about how we think things And again you. An intelligent person could look at the staff and say that just doesn't look right but my point is that's not enough. You really have to have evidence this election. That's the objective. Or here's what i would recommend this. I would just say this. Jr that the stakes are so high. Because it's not just about is is comma. Hera is going to be president of the united states with joe. Biden is a strong assistive as if his leg holds up. He's not playing with his dog and bringing another leg. It's not just the the. The odds are our republic in the belief in the republic. So i would. I would say this. I'm i'm i'm tired of being told that we have to prove and i think that's fine. Let's let's put this out there. I need to have an explanation. How does raw data form itself into algorithm blocks. How does that occur. How is it that there are blocks votes. I think three hundred and some thousand votes that came in ninety six point four percents or something for biden him quoting from memory. How do all these all these mathematical anomalies happen. Let's let's let's pick just the ninety six percent voting block for biden. Where do those ballots. Come from. And by the way. Where is the trailer of missing ballots and in terms of these algorithmic happenings. Twelve hundred volt blocks two thousand vote blocks ex. Let's go back and trace those. What were those ballots. That's what i'm looking for. Is just some reasonable explanation in. I don't i don't think they can provide that. You know i don't all right then. I think that would be the point where we need to say. When you do a review right. I mean what does it in golf. You get a mulligan right. Isn't that what you get in gulf mulligan or review of some kind so are the stakes that we would do a redo. I think it to me. I understand what you're saying. I don't disagree with it for you. Know my own perspective. But i think the way it works in courts and we're trying to get a court to a pine on this that they're saying okay. You're coming with the challenge. Unique dot com with evidence. That can tell me that this actually happened. You can look at the dominion system or whatever it's called and say yeah we know you. Can you can break into it and manipulated easily. But did it really happen. And where's the proof edited the lattice. What's going to come down then. The try this next time. The irs says. Hey we don't we think you earn more money than than than we think he did. Tell them. I don't keep receipts. Say sorry. I don't keep receipts because this is what i understand. The dominion system does it doesn't it doesn't keep audible. Keep logs one can audit so. I think we're in a mess in that way. But the stakes are high enough that i think they need to focus on the algorithm if the software stuff that known stuff and just demand answers for that but listen. I appreciate the call jared to great call. Thanks for calling russia show. Thanks for the well. Wishes for rush taught her informational. Eib network for rush limbaugh on the eib network. Eight hundred two eight two two eight eight two wisconsin. Supreme court has declined to hear the president's campaign challenge to the presidential election results. It has all gonna lead up to the supreme court and for me it begins and ends. This way was their opportunity for fraud. was it created. Opportunity did the democrats create an environment that welcomes fraud. If you are someone who is upside down in a business and you have reached this desperate point where you want to have. It burned down. You want to have cars stolen leaving unlocked or the keys in it in a neighborhood. Detroit for car crime or lead the business open right do you create environments. Where things like. This are likely to occur. Do you multiply the chances the democrats did that. They announced it. There were those of us who are from forced mail in voting states who have watched gubernatorial election stolen. We know everybody knows that in washington state christine gregoire stole the election from this gentleman. Friend of mine rossi. Everybody knows it and the way they did. It was the way we told you they would do this here. You keep counting ballots and tell you have the outcome you want. How many witnesses have told us that. The the the election officials had no idea how many ballots to count. Now think of this. They're counting ballots. They know how many were sent out. They know how many will return. That's you know. These are the envelopes contained. And you're sitting in a room and you're saying are we done counting. We don't know let me know. How can you not know you know. How many ballots went out. You know how many came back with counted. How many are we done. We don't in the case of rossi. They found new ballots nine times nine times the last time they were in the trunk of guys car. Oh i forgot. I gotta much ballots in the back of my car magically dina rossi quote lost. We warned you did. They create an environment for fraud. Do they have motive when we know that. are there. Instances of the instances of fraud. Yes there are people who voted in georgia who no longer live in georgia according to Giuliani in the teams. There were more ballots returns in pennsylvania. Then were sent out of coding. To ken matthews. And i've seen these. I've seen from the secretary of state's website. I believe from pennsylvania that counts. Did that occur okay. Did did people register at non addresses. Yes i'd when listening to sean parnell. Congressional candidate in pennsylvania is a combat veteran special forces have believe and i think his team went to retirement home and did an audit. Did you vote. no oh well. That's interesting because two thousand ballots returned that all had the same handwriting on them all had forged signatures. That's interesting did fraud occur. Yes was there motive. Yes was there opportunity. Yes was it created opportunity. Yes we're there. Instances of fraud. Yes were there attempts to cover up. Yes the reformatting and scrapping understand it. The dominion machines meteoroid ports. The can't wait to get in the new machines reformat them. Did they take efforts to block observers from watching yes did they threaten some republican observers. Yes do they. Block the windows. I think that was in detroit. Yes did they claim they were shutting down counting and continued to count. Yes when there were not is on them. Is that when motion suspicious vote counts came in. Yes are there. Instances that appear to be algorithm. Ick vote editions that are not organic to raw data. Raw data doesn't present itself a neat little twelve hundred and two thousand volt packages yes. These things occurred. That's enough in my mind to say we need to investigate this. We need explanations for some of these things at the very least anybody who did anything like that needs to go to jail. Prisoners have rob in fort worth texas. You're on the rush. Limbaugh program taught him and filling. Rob welcome the show. Hey taught appreciate you taking my call. I just got a gut. Contract announced the wisconsin supreme court decision not to the case. But hey on another note just real quickly sounded like you said that you are a kiss a rapper. If i heard you playing attala so do that just go on your own. Thank you i appreciate that but hey listen i. There's a lot going on here. I what you just did was something that i've been that. I've been screaming from the rooftops. About which is simplify the message of what the republicans are trying to do in the trump teams trying to do which is followed the law in pennsylvania. The law was not changed. The law still states votes have to be in by a certain time. They mailed all these ballots out. There's no law that covers that. So if a if a if a if they Bureaucrat of some kind of elected or not any kind of a local officials or a precinct officials state official whatever can change the rules. And that's gonna stand they're gonna roll that show down to harris county texas ago role that show down to dallas county texas. They're gonna roll that show into mini parts of the country and in national elections and then down ballot elections. If that stands is over and robbed reason go ahead just wanted to know. I want you to get your reason. I just want to tell you just changed my next hours monologue on. I'm humbled by that. I'm just trying to trying to express what i know. The next steps are going to be. If we lose it this you couldn't. You couldn't be more right. And i am remiss i tell you what rob in honor of you. I'm not trying to kiss up. You cautioned me against that. You're exactly right next hour monologue. I'm going to try to make the case in the same way. I have with the covert flu. Going down to fax and supposition. We're going to do that. Courtesy of you. That's a great reminder. The six or so high. We gotta do that. Thanks for the call. Robin during the show taught him in for rush limbaugh on the eib. It is phenomenal to watch the media continue to drain whatever remaining credibility. Anyone holds them. Usa today did a fact check this picture of the former. Hillary obama staffer jen psaki wearing a hammer and sickle hat. Facts are the claim photo shows. Sake joe biden's pick for press khacharian wearing a hammer and sickle hat. Usa today says or ruling missing context however when they had a picture of a trump campaign person with an eagle. They said it's not see short term and for rush limbaugh. Thank you so much for allowing me to sit in for rush limbaugh. Thank you to mr limbaugh. Self and bo snerdley the gang in new york and thank god for this gift of this day. You have made for us. It is a great time to pray for just a prayer revival in this country because we are at that point where we need that more than ever particularly in the spirit of truth if are going to make the case to put this election the results the signs of fraud in front of a court of law. Now i'm not a lawyer. I mean that should be obvious anybody. I'm a lawyer. But i will put this out there this way. We know that vote fraud occurred. We know that there were large blocks of vote fraud. Let's let's start with this. We know that there are people who got ballots counted. Who did not live in the state in question. we've got at least. According to the evidence is being presented. They say they'd have this evidence that this is not a hard match. The armistead project think. That's the one started by the former Attorney general kansas or at least run by him. They have hard numbers of ballots. People registered at addresses that are not in fact homes that are illegal to use in these elections. They have bowed sander standard that from people who live out of state. There are ballots of people who voted twice. We know that there are those instances of voter fraud. We know that in georgia there were two classes of signatures. One harder to prove to to compare the other easier to compare that created a block of votes. That don't go through the same scrutiny. as others. we know those. We know that to be the case. We know that there are those instances of fraud that indicate in environment of fraud. That was set up the democrats set up environments for fraud. This is clear when you make changes to a complicated system at the last second and it is those changes that have enabled a lot of the fraud. We just talked about these cases that we know happened so we know there was fraud. We know that they tell us they can prove this. Compare these ballots cetera from that the democrats purposely set up opportunities to commit fraud. I would say yes if you think. About for instance. Pennsylvania in pennsylvania is fighting and. I'm glad to see that. Sean parnell who's running for congress. There is taking this to. The supreme court are trying to get it into the supreme court in in pennsylvania the male everybody a ballot thing as i understand it is illegal that would require a constitutional amendment. The democrats went down the path. I understand of trying to get that. Constitutional amendment process started. But they knew it was too slow so they just did this with the waving of a pen hence they broke the law be setup an environment to break the law and voters took advantage of that. Sean parnell had status suddenly because he was a congressional candidate who was affected by this key took it to the state supreme court. Who said oh sorry. You waited too long. Which is a lot like saying if someone breaks into your house and you wait to find out if they're a burglar they're no longer a burglar because you waited too long. So we know there were instances setup. Were fraud was enabled. We know that the democrats also created circumstances where fraud would be easier to commit in multiple states. We have people who have signed affidavits that put them at risk of going to jail. If they're lying they've put full skin in the game. They can be jailed for lying. Because they've signed legally binding affidavits. People things i watched poll-watchers threatened. We weren't allowed to see the ballots. We were told to get out. We had people cursing at us. In many of these states it is illegal to threaten poll-watchers and yet they say some of them under penalty of perjury. Your stand it. That they were in fact threatens. Did the democrats have a motive to cheat. Yes they did. Did they create an environment that invited fraud. Yes they did. Did fraud occur. Yes it did. Is it just limited to the mail in ballots. Etcetera in other words maybe not enough to sway the elections. No it may not have been was dominion wear available was it was connected to the internet. The dominion voting software according to retired. Colonel waldren he says his white hat. Hackers have seen the traffic indicating that dominion software is not only connected to the internet but connected to countries. That do not mean us. Well an end one american news network and others now have interviewed. Patrick byrne patrick is a billionaire tech entrepreneur. Very smart engineer mathematician. He also says he had a team of hackers looking into breaking into but looking into dominion software and they came back and said yeah. This is a pretty easy hack. If we wanted to do that was it. Compromised well in two thousand sixteen. There were tech experts speaking before this is politicized at a critical infrastructure summit in san francisco they described the dominion software as very easy to get into so easy in fact amateur hackers simply copying the exploits of better. Hackers could probably get into one of the gentlemen on that panel said that he thought that's how the election website in the state of arizona was hacked. Did this happen in effect the elections well. What's what's what signs do we have that it did happen. We have these. This is in my opinion. The best thing about vote fraud that i've read in. It comes from central city news. A gentleman named woody jenkins who is the editor of this newspaper. And it is him that goes through to look the vote feed the feet of data. That is i understand. It went from the voting machines to the big media times. He shows blocks of votes in raw data. Coming in in twelve hundred. Vote block so here. Here's twelve hundred. Votes joe biden. Here's twenty four. Hundred for joe biden. Here's thirty six hundred for joe biden invoked box. That doesn't happen in raw data. Same thing happened in pennsylvania according to woody's piece but it was in blocks of two thousand so two thousand votes for biden. Four thousand and six thousand does that happen in raw data. It does not that is not a natural occurrence in raw data. That would be very very much like you waking up in the morning to see that bittered snowed. Say three feet in your neighborhood except every third house had no snow in fact every third house was sunny and nice and the kids are outside with no shirts running through the sprinklers. You'd say oh. I guess that's natural. No you wouldn't because that's not how things happen like if you were on the beach on a deserted island and you walked up to the beach and there was writing on on the beach that said barbecue at three. You wouldn't say oh look at that. The the whales have learned to write you determined that there was a human being on the beach. Because you know language doesn't happen happen. Stanchly doesn't occur by chance. So are there other signs of this. Yes the president when he made his forty five minute. Presentation turned to some data created by a friend of mine named justin hard. Who has a background in politics. But he's really just a data analyst. What he does his skill set is. He teaches companies how to make more money by looking at data performance. Kpi key performance indicators. That's what he does. He looked at the same data going from the voting machines to the big media and said this is really strange. There's all these unnatural hockey sticks of votes. These blasts for biden very unnatural. This doesn't happen in raw data. Oh and look at this. Here's some instances where twenty five thousand vote blocks left the account so to speak of president trump and went to the account so to speak of joe biden. That's fifty thousand votes swing. Were this these errors. Can they be explained. Was this because connected to the internet. Likewise rand paul made the point that the president lost his lead in these five states between the hours of one thirty and six thirty a m when the people break in buildings what is crime committed when there's fewest is possible on the crimes right. When did the president supposedly lose his lead in that five hour block of time. Lastly did they make an attempt to cover up fraud. Well the kicked the poll watchers out. They said they were gonna stop counting. They put boards on the windows. And detroit's as i understand it's and i'd be glad to hear from the dominion software people. You want to set me right. But i've heard enough testimony at this point that i understand that they do not have logs. You can audit to go back and see wait. Can we compare the votes. What happened here. Are they taking steps to reform at the machines. My understanding is they are. Is there reason to believe that. The fraud goes beyond that people. Voting who didn't live in the state beyond the people voting twice the on the nursing homes and long term care facilities whereas obvious people went balanced harvesting and forged people's names in signatures. Does the fraud extend up to an algorithm basis in these five cities in these five states. Where between the hours of one thirty. Am and six thirty eight am. President trump incurred things like seeing three hundred thousand. Volt blocks come in ninety two percent for his opponent which is a mathematical anomaly of gargantuan height on that basis the basis i just described the united states. Supreme court must hear this case or they will be making the decision to tell people like you and me an eight million people mind your own business taught her in for rush limbaugh the saad herman in for rush limbaugh network folks still want to talk about the liberal greg who called and sort of unfolded himself in his own defeat. We'll get to that. We're just talking about digital fraud in voting and online shopping this holiday season you know cyber hackers love this time of year. They love to get your credit card information that you sharing online. They love to get a hold of that and use it. Protect yourself online today with lifelock. Let's let rush limbaugh explained this best. Now folks do something smart for yourself this week. Start protecting yourself and your online identity. If you haven't already in lami take ten or fifteen minutes to do it. That's how quickly you can protect yourself and your online identity with lifelock lifelock identity theft protection is second to none now here in a day and age where your information is stored on more company databases than ever before. You need a way of protecting yourself. Those databases are the focus of cyber thieves. I mean it's a gold mine for them they're not looking for you specifically don't even know you. They're just looking for as many names as they can as much information as they can get because there's enough information on those databases for a cyber hacker to assume your identity open of accounts in your name and start their own spending spree. You'll be left to pay the bills or at least dispute the bills and then have to contend with restoring your credit score. And your good name. Who wants that now. No one company can prevent all identity theft. But i'm telling you lifelock's online monitoring systems. They worked twenty four seven scanning online transaction or transactions and they look for irregular patterns in your spending mysterious account openings more. They look for signs. Your identity has been stolen at other people are using your data and when they see something they get in touch with you immediately to confirm the problem and they have perhaps the best thing of all restoration team. They assign people if something does happen if you do get hacked like this. They assign the restoration team to work with you and stick with you until it's fixed and resolved. There's nobody that does that sign up tonight. Lifelock dot com. Make sure your use my name. You'll save twenty five percent off your first years plan with lifelock. That's lifelock dot com promo code rush. Thank you rush. You will not believe what we're gonna. I'm going to screen this. So i can do a play by play for you. Were a little bit here. But there's evidence out of georgia. And i wanna be able to play by play dramatic undertaking. But i'll give you this in georgia. They counted they're counting ballots and then they decided to tell people to go home. So butch people leave the room out from under the furniture comes suitcases. Guess what's in the suitcases. Explain it in full just a bit earlier in the program. We took a call from a gentleman named greg. Who called to complain. That that's me. Who is against the big bank bailouts and against paying off for having driven our economy into the basement with making loans to people that two people who had no chance to pay it back which is cruel the people and precipitating the housing crash at such a young young guy named greg called and he'd made the decision to take out a five thousand dollar loan because he wanted to be a pe teacher and then just in conversation we turn to figure out why he felt like it was responsibility to pay his debts that he took out. He happened the volunteer the fact that that though he wanted to be a pe teacher she was quote working at the time delivering pizzas. But he wasn't working he was on the phone with the rush limbaugh program not in fact delivering pizzas but he was on the clock if that wasn't interesting enough then then. He said that he regretted eleven years ago. He took out this five thousand dollar debt that he wants us to pay and then he informed us that the fact that the reason he wasn't a pe teacher he felt was because he had an assault charge on that he was convicted of assault. He assaulted his dad and he volunteered this to us as well by way of his defense and at that point he'd sort of unwired himself but i don't think he knew that i think he called thought told his friends. Man i just said everybody. Right on the rush limbaugh program john from milwaukee. Wisconsin wanted to address just that thing. John welcome russia's show has taught herman filling in the russian russia. I todd god. Bless rush america and merry christmas indeed. Merry christmas and god bless rush in america. Yes usually at work. So i don't have the opportunity to call I've been with russia in the nineteen eighty nine but greg motivated me to call. It's very frustrating year. These young people requests from hardworking people To bail them out for their choice to go to school and accept these loans as argument with Bailing out the Farmers doesn't compare apples to oranges doesn't hold water. They weren't asking for care. But i a very interesting story. I needed to share in regards to grade school It's in regards to a friend who died Self-made straight out of the by Whose daughter delivered a eulogy to him her first words. Where data hated you. 'cause you wouldn't pay for my college her second words. Where thank you you gave me. The greatest gift of father can give daughter by helping me to learn how to stand on my own two feet. It really messed me and says everything that we need to know. And i'm so sad that these kids nowadays Do not know how to learn or have not learn how to stand on their own two feet and that needs to happen for anyone to move forward and whatever happened to not what your country can do for you. Yeah well i would say this. I i was a little bit snarky with greg because i i'm that way sometimes when someone is wanting to reach into my pocket enforced me to pay for something that they didn't consult me about and that way because i didn't have the advantage of a college degree. That was my decision. My mom would have paid for me to go to college. There's other ways it could've done it. I decided to drop out and pursue my own path in life. And i'm very blessed and i've worked extremely hard. I still work extremely hard. But i said to him in amended that i hope that he will at one point accept responsibility. Because if you don't accept your failures you cannot take credit for your successes. You simply cannot say. This is something i did write. This is something i earned. If you don't also say that. I earned the problems that i created for myself and sometimes look there's extenuating circumstances. I don't know greg's home life. I don't know what it was like. I don't know what his dad was like. But i do know that eleven years after the fact that that's the excuse for no progress in your life that's a poison in. It's a poison that i think it into kids heads particularly in this society that wants to feed kids very much the line that you are either victim or your perpetrator of victimhood upon others. It's a great call. john. Thank you for that. Very very impressive Thanks for calling. Russia show and for being with rush all these years. We just made the case about responsibility. We just made the case about personal responsibility in but group responsibility. I'm gonna watch on the break this video. That just came out from from texas and team. Trump has tweeted this it is. it's from texas. yeah from georgia. Pardon me thank you above. The it appears to show election fraud vote fraud happening on video at pretty terrific scale. And as i'm watching what. I understand to be ballots being pull out from under the furniture. I'm really curious if we're going to get a statement from the republican officials in georgia like the secretary of state about this because it seems to me. We can identify the people in this as well. Are we still going to hear nothing to look at here. Are we still going to be told. Recounts are fine. That no one's making the case that it was the arithmetic. That's the problem. We come back russia show. I will do a little play by play of what this video looks like. So you guys can virtually through. Audience taught herman infrared limbaugh on the eib network. It is eight hundred two eight two two eight eight two. If you want to try to get into the last minute rush limbaugh dot com is where you can leave special note for russia's at the top of the website. I should have asked this during the break. This just occurred to me. And i don't know if guests are allowed to make such requests but mike in new york if we have something on the lines of a news theme like an nbc news theme. Just this idea that. I wanted to try to present. Because he's talking to both snerdley the break about this. Just let's let's let's point of comparison with what we're about to discuss. This is from team trump on twitter at team trump and it is from a n one american news hour so let me set the stage for. This isn't georgia. Apparently about eight o'clock in the morning according to this video. And this this testimony at the hearing georgia a woman with the the judge election system apparently brought in a black table to a room where we're going to be counting ballots and she placed this table at a certain place in the room and this is a gray on. Gray and silver carpeted room with black furniture white walls and they came a time when they said. Hey we're gonna quit counting now. If you'll recall the monologue at the top of the hour today i was pointing out that president. Trump actually lost his lead in these states as ryan. Paul has made the case between the hours of one thirty. Am and six thirty am suddenly when less is wrong. Things and this is where are these. Incredible vote counts. Came in with all the votes ninety percent going for biden so in this room in georgia. Apparently they told people to leave. Were done counting now in that same room. A woman the same woman. Apparently who that table brought that table into the room she and others go to that black table in one by one. They pulled from under that black table suitcases. They roll the suitcases away from the table and they set them down on this white. Are this gray on gray and light. Silver carpet zigzag pattern. They unzip the suitcases and from the suitcases. They pull ballots. Multiple people do this. I think there's four suitcases in total. They then go about using the vote counting machines which according to the testimony. Apparently in this in this audio can count three thousand ballots in our and there's multiple machines. Apparently this goes on for a couple of hours. How many votes have account. Where did they come from. Why were they in suitcases. Why did they wait until people left the room. Did they count the same ballots multiple times. Could it be that. If there's four machines three thousand ballots per hour there could be twenty four. Twenty five thousand ballots counted multiple times. What percentage did those votes count for biden. This one of the cases were ninety percent of the votes counted for biden. Did this happen in that magic period of time where the president lost his lead. I will remind you. And i think one thousand four in washington state. The democrats stole a gubernatorial election. And everybody knows they did it with found ballots they. It is every time they counted. It came up just short of a corrupt democrat named chris. Gregoire she's christine when she's running for office. She's chris when she's in office at one point during the counting. The lady running the counting according to media reports recall said okay. We're really close. We only need five hundred and then crafted herself. Said oh i mean i mean. It's a very close election. Let's be careful. Someone raised their hand. And said i forgot. I've got ballots in the trunk of my car. And we're to believe that that person sitting there that entire time just thin remembered goodness. I've got a bunch of belts my car. Maybe i should go get those. Do the republicans in georgia have anything to say about this. Is this something that we're also to say. Well we've recounted. This is why the continual statements from georgia saying. We've recounted you guys we. We've we've done to recounts the are right. No one is saying. You can't add ballots to ballots to count them off in piles. What we're saying is. How did these ballots get in there. In what pile do they belong. Netflix an nbc news theme or something. Like that. I might do a little bit of imagining. I might go into my own head. And let's conversation that he just had with boesch nerdy during the break. Blast a question. Can you imagine. Let's rewind back to romney versus obama but three wind. Let's take this instance and let's imagine that. Nbc news theme playing in your ears live tonight from atlanta. Georgia were charges of racism. Have a community on edge. We go now live to atlanta. Georgia were marie ceo. Moreiras is live last night outside this hotel. There was chaos and set as citizens of atlanta are asking. Why ballots brought from suitcases in the late. Hours of the evening were counted into the record leading to election. Victory and appears for mitt romney. A white man running against brock obama. The first african american ever to be cleared national messiah. The cities would burn. The media would have already identified all four people in that room. They would have already declared the election and active racism. They already would have declared it a redo they would already be demanding jail sentences they would be right now going to every republican and saying you agree that this proves that mitt. Romney is a racist. Do you agree that this election should be overturned and to extend the thought exercise a little bit how many republicans would have immediately folded at this point and yet this won't be in the mainstream. This will be another act. The propaganda side. It's nothing against o. A. n. one american news network. Nothing against them at all. They had the vision to begin this network at the same time that the news programmers which spell n. o. z. like booze the cnbc's and in msnbc's cnn's of the world getting people drunk on this misinformation and keeping them lacking the of fresh information. Oh a end is airing. This is not being aired on cnn. These hearings are not being aired to my knowledge. Let's they've started doing this. I don't even know that. Fox's these this information you now have because alway n tweeted and because the president's team grabbed it and put it out. Is this cause to count again or is this cause to stop everything and figure out. How ballots like this ever made it into a room where they could be counted. What is the chain of custody. The ballots are evidence in a dispute. What is the chain of custody. Where were they that they were putting the the suitcases. Are these some of the ballots from the missing truck. Trailer mind you. There's a rumor going around. The media is not showing the president's presentation of this. They're also not showing the testimony of americans like you who are saying in my gut. Things aren't right in my gut this too many anomalies movement through the very specific instances of fraud. We know this looks to me to be blatant fraud in a fraud. We suspect this is the video supreme court that people will remember. If you don't hear this case people remember you curious about this. That's what the remember you need to hear. This taught him an infant rush. Limbaugh on the eib star. Herman in for rush limbaugh on the eib network and jara in clinton utah. You're on the rush limbaugh program. Thanks for checking in they. Get your name right jim. Jerem jerem appreciate you calling. Yeah no. I'm just calling about the pizza. No disrespect that that. Just a guy trying to provide for his family you know he said you were getting him riled up and he got me route so i'm college student. I wondered fifty hours a week. I donate blood. I have a couple of side gigs to bring it in. And i'm i'm not taken out that i'm not doing those things so you know if i can do. I don't feel like the guy sitting next to me. My classmates can just go out and you know live the college experience do whatever they want with no responsibility and then just. Hey you know this generation. Everybody gets a trophy. So we're just gonna give you this free pass. Give you this free go. Hey hit the real world. That's not the real world like we've gotta quit teaching kids this that they can just get a free hand out no matter what they're doing responsibilities gotta hit somewhere and i'm living in. I'm doing it. So why did you ever be held to a different standard right and there were people Hitting on twitter saying that they felt as a little bit. Rude talking about greg. And i asked if i heard the call and etc and what i'm trying to get across to greg. Is that you you call. He called us in called me and said first of all. I know what you think about this or that. No you don't which is very indicative of this of this culture of young people that oh you are on russia's show and and so you are bagging cautions no. it wasn't. i'm begging on joe biden and kamala harris. Cy wiping out an economy by going and bailing out big. College doesn't need to be bailed out. That money's not gonna go to greg that money's not going to go to the people with the loans that money's it simply shifting and what we're doing is you're going to big college has some liability now because he's loans outstanding. They may not get paid back. Because it doesn't sound that. Greg is right now in the state of mind to pay it back. And we're shifting the costs over here so it's not just the college students. It get bailed out. It's also colleges and this is the biggest scam going when you look at these colleges with their climbing walls and at the university of washington they have a whole lab of video games where you can get a degree in playing video games not designing them playing them. So you can be an e sports quote athlete at cetera. You see that the luxury that they put these kids in these dorms this contest to get these kids to go into this high-tech womb. That's like a resume. The secondary wound to be go enclosed in this luxury. And this is a cost-shifting two big college so they can continue to play that shell game with us. So let's not pretend like that. Money is going to the students. The money is going to big college. It's a payoff to the big college unions. And it's gripped right. When you look at the endowments of these colleges in the amount of money they have and that was just a carried interest literally. Just the interest earned on their endowments they could legitimately pay their staff and their groundskeepers and bring students in there at no charge with their own money. Given to them voluntarily through endowments. So that's i guess my point this jerome whereas Clinton utah's that is that a little bit rural A little bit not too much. It's it's just west of hill air force base. Okay so i actually know right where it is a lot of family from utah and still down there. So thank you for the phone. Call jar jar. I hope i'm trying to get that right. Appreciate the phone call. Thanks for joining us on russia. Show let's talk to greg in central california central california coast on the rush limbaugh program. Another greg joins us gregg. Welcome the rush. Limbaugh show as herman filling in yeah. I was on the phone I so i didn't hear all the other conversations About the first. Greg called in but one point that i wanna make that liberals tend to do is they tend one thing that he said to you that i found offensive was he said you know. It seems as though the forgiveness of this loan makes you as a conservative against the little guy and I just remember during the two thousand nine. When we had that that pink crisis the obama biden administration. They bailed out the banks. They didn't give money directly to the people that were hurting like trump. Did this last one right so You know forgiveness of all these student loans this is gonna be you know Huge for the banks. They're going to be making hay on this because they're going to get all these loans that are going to be tough to collect off their books. Yep so this is going to be not only You know it's going to be huge for the big banks and and then they can accuse us of not being for the little guy. So i just find it Really interesting the way this played out. It's a kitty shield. I mean they're using the young people as a kitty shield to get more money out of us and big banks and in lots of big organizations learned. Hey we're gonna pre hardcore capitalists. We're at rock. Red capitalists when it comes to the profits. don't you touch our prophets. We need to figure out ways to socialize losses like the big insurance companies have done etc. That's exactly great point greg. Thanks for the phone call. Taught herman in for rush. Limbaugh the eob now. It's been a great honor is always to fill in for rush limbaugh. Todd you can hear me Usually the morning show in seattle it. This show couldn't happen without brian in florida. That just talking to the staff. Had brian just one above and beyond so brian gets huge. Shot out today as always. Mike and bo craig. Thank you so much for allowing me to fill in for my radio. Hero in life mentor rush. Limbaugh open line friday. As tomorrow i would. I would leave you with this. This thought of folks When i do radio or give speeches. I asked the holy spirit would fill me with words that that the holy spirit wants me to convey and i'm not always accessible. We have a lot of convincing to do lot of evidence. Lots of fraud. And i would ask. Maybe just a special prior to fill this audience with the holy spirit's ability to persuade people who must be persuaded that the spirit of truth would return would would fall upon. People would imbue us with the ability to communicate rationally to people whose minds may be opened to the notion that we are witnessing a great fraud. On i'm very thankful that the president's pursuing this all we're asking for to to save once again to the supreme court just just all we're asking for is a fully transparent hearing all the evidence is aired and we get to watch. That's that's what god help provide us. It's taught herman filling in for rush. Limbaugh open line friday tomorrow on the one and only the i being hi i'm cj pearson and everything.
