      I thought the speech was very good and very honest. I hope people take the time to listen to it.

      I keep hearing that this is a big deal, but can someone explain why? I never heard of him before yesterday. Thanks.

    I view folks like Thiel and Mike Flynn as the future of the new Trump nationalist movement going forward. I see them as individuals that Trump can groom to continue the spirit of his movement long after he’s done MAGA.

    I’m very excited by the new leaders that have been inspired by Trump and who will lead this nation in the future. Thiel is yet but the latest example of how Trump has realigned politics with this campaign!

    Yes it is.

    This guy is riding the emotion of the country. Both sides are failures and Donald Trump is the antidote.

    Blasting Bush’s war that started at $40 billion and is 50x that amount today, with much more chaos. The Clinton’s and the Democrats are now just as hawkish, if not worse, because her Syrian No-Fly Zone policy would draw us to the brink of Nuclear War with Russia for the first time since 1962.

    So much great stuff in this speech

    that being said – he’s a billionaire, speaks to groups not infrequently…. however, his use of the teleprompter sure makes one appreciate how quickly and fully trump has mastered that mode of communication…. just like a lot of other stuff he’s needed.

      Another man with the courage of his convictions.

      They have been in short supply for a long, long time. This Nation of ours is hungering, as Thiel said, for NORMALCY. Most of us have forgotten what that is and are weary of hearing “get used to the new normal” i.e. failure on all fronts.

      I applaud Thiel and appreciate his courage and his endorsement of out next President, Donald Trump.

      Let’s hope there are some more Thiels, willing to risk their comfortable existence and help Donald Trump get this corruption rooted out of not just Government, but those that are corrupt enablers and accomplices of those individuals who have no love for this great Country that enabled them to prosper.

      In truth they hate the US and all those that they are consider beneath their self anointed superior status which they wear like a cloak-not against the cold, but against everyone else who is not as worthy as they believe themselves to be.

        Contrast Peter Thiel with Eric Schmidt of Google. Google has become what they said they weren’t going to become, EVIL!

        We can build a secure new Internet without the Google and Microsoft dominance of search. We must free ourselves from Big Brother Google, Microsoft, Apple and Amazon, as they now are in control of world commerce, computing and communications. If these companies (all founded in the USA) were being run by honest patriotic Americans, that would be one thing. Unfortunately they are not…their founders and top management all feed at the Globalist trough. Their goal is world dominance and they are well on the way to it.

    Anyone else weirded out by Rush’s bizarre behavior re Trump? Been a Rush 24-7 member for a few years, but he’s been off the wall: on Friday he kept pushing a cockamamie theory that the Dims started the latest email investigation to “distract” us from the Wikileaks revelations, which made no sense at all, and he went on in this vein for some 20 minutes, giving me the sensation he was pushing our head back underwater. “Don’t get excited!” was the gist of it.

    Then today, he spent his entire opening monologue Defending this nonsense, and protesting that he was quoting a “friend” of his who’d “emailed” this theory: “I said a ‘Cynic’ would say all this, not me!” was the gist of his protest. I got irritated again and turned it off, because he was so obviously trying to cover a big misstep.

    So disappointed in Rush. I think since he’s been doing the embedded Apple infomercials he’s sliding over to the Dark Side, at least partway. DAMN. He Never praises Trump; just keeps repeating the leftwing slanders over and over, then saying “but you have to vote for him because She would be worse….” What? never making the Positive case?

    Like he talks about America, and never, ever says “America,” we’re always “the country this, the country that.” (Leftists never, ever use the name “America.” They know how powerful it is. No, I’m not saying RL is a leftist, but….) He also repeats the leftwing slanders about America, saying they accuse our country of being founded as a “racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted” nation, but NEVER making the case that these are all LIES.

    I wish he’d get his s*** together. We could use him.

        I called in a few weeks ago to say he talks trash about Trump 99% of the time and leaves Hillary alone. His news director said he does talk Trump more but also talked about the wikileaks. Then a few days later Barrett acted all snarky on his show saying something nasty about Trump, and then said ‘I better say something about Hillary before I get more calls’ or something to that effect.

    • It so happens I heard both of those shows. He was very clear on Friday that he was quoting his “friend” not advancing his own theory. And today he was fit to be tied about the theory being attributed to him.

      He questioned why it was that he would be deliberately mis-represented that way. (Note to Rush: Because attaching your name to it instantly generates interest).

      I for one don’t think it’s anything of the sort – this is WAAAY too close to the election for that kind of stunt, and anyhow Hillary isn’t that clever. Exhibit A, that ridiculous manufactured sex scandal she tried to pin on Trump.

He talks more about The Movement than Trump in particular – I even heard him say that he wasn’t sure Trump understood how strong the army behind him was (at which point I again realized he was FOS haha)

    The Real News Network did an insightful series on why most of those in “the knowledge economy,” which includes Silicon Valley, back Hillary Clinton and her push for globalization, one-world government, and the trade deals which are designed to bring that about.

    Silicon Valley’s support for globalization has nothing to do with what’s best for the United States. It has nothing to do with the economic wellbeing of most of the American people. It is often sold with that spin, but what it really has to do with is the promotion of Silicon Valley’s own material self-interest.

    In Trump’s opposition to one-world government, he finds some common ground with Bernie Sanders, even though Sanders seems to have now abandoned all his principles which he stood for during the campaign.

    Here’s a link to the first segment, from which the other six segments can be found.

      Hillary Clinton: The Silicon Valley Candidate
      http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/10/19/the-silicon-valley-candidate/

      Clinton paints her tech agenda in appealing terms. She says it’s about reducing social and economic inequality, creating good jobs, and bridging the digital divide. The real goals – and beneficiaries – are different….

      • The internet industry has been lobbying Congress for years to reform US immigration policy to gain flexibility in hiring, to ease access to a global pool of skilled labor, and to weaken employees’ bargaining power….

      • Clinton’s blanket endorsement of online education…is an encouragement to online vendors to renew their attack on the U.S. education system – despite a track record of failure and flagrant corruption. Still more deceitful is Hillary’s lack of acknowledgment of a personal conflict of interest. According to a Financial Times analysis, after stepping down as Secretary of State in 2013, Hillary accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars for speeches to private education providers; her husband Bill has “earned” something like $21 million from for-profit education companies since 2010.

      • Clinton’s proposal for access to high-speed Internet for all by 2020…are euphemisms for corporate welfare, after the fashion of the Google fiber project – which is substantially subsidized by taxpayers….

      • Clinton’s international plans are equally manipulative. She will press for “an open Internet abroad,” that is, for “internet freedom” and “free flow of information across borders.” Despite the powerful appeal of this rhetoric, which she exploited systematically when she was Secretary of State, Clinton actually is pushing to bulwark U.S. big capital in general, and U.S. internet and media industries, in particular.

      • Outside the United States, especially since the disclosures by Edward Snowden in 2013, it is increasingly well-understood that the rhetoric of human rights is a smokescreen for furthering U.S. business interests.[8] Reviving this approach is cynical electioneering rather than an endeavor to advance human rights or, indeed, more just international relations.

      • “Multi-stakeholderism” endows private corporations with public responsibilities, while it downgrades the ability of governments to influence Internet policy….

      • To build up her policy platform in this vital field, Clinton has assembled a network of more than 100 tech and telecom advisors.[11] The members of this shadowy group have not been named, but they are said to include former advisors and officials, affiliates of think-tanks and trade groups, and executives at media corporations.

      • Apparently, just as with respect to Wall Street, the public has no right to know who is shaping Clinton’s program for technology.

      • Clinton’s policy platform is meant to resonate with Apple’s Tim Cook, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, and Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz – all of whom have publicly rallied to her campaign.[12]

      • Clinton’s program, though, is both surreptitious and plutocratic.

        Thanks for posting the article.

        There may be an attempt to blacklist Peter Thiel but as far as I know there is only 1 person who has come out doing this. And it is infamous Ellen Pao who once instigated & then lost an unjustifiable discrimination lawsuit. She then became interim CEO of Reddit & further embarrassed herself by imposing idiotic rules on the free spirited Reddit community & eventually was forced out. Now she is trying to shun Thiel out of Silicon Valley which is not working. Zuckerberg of Facebook came out in support of him.

        Ellen Pao is trying to make herself relevant & fails at every attempt. The article will probably get no traction.

    The DOJ will drag this out till it dissipates into a murky pool of lawyer speak. They may even give Hillary a benign cover before the election by claiming she is innocent until otherwise proven guilty. Others will eventually be blamed and the Clinton’s charmed lives continue.

    The last few days brought Democrat anger and angst.Obama’s moves will revive their ambitions. We will roll into the election with Trump having to revisit the ‘rigged system’ theme once again. Hillary will miraculously regain her smug arrogance and resume the offensive.

    Wikileaks seems to have nothing more dramatic in store. Time is running out for them. It looks like the drip of Podesta content has stopped making an impact. Unless there are actual details presented from the Weiner computer I doubt that it will be a fatal blow to Clinton’s chances.

    Obama’s meddling and Chicago political methods are going to be in absolute full tilt intensity this week. We are in the calm before the real storm at the moment.

    Slaying the dragon is never easy. Like all action movies these days, just when you think you’ve seen the resolution a surprise twist changes the plot.

    This will all end in court one way or the other and possibly make election results almost the subplot.

    Tried to come up with a list of financing that goes to education. remember this when they cry that ‘educators’ are low-paid. If they are, for 3/4 year work, all holidays and a four-day work-week, then it’s the schools’ fault, because this is a bottomless pit that is draining the nation dry:
    property taxes
    federal taxes
    parent-organized fund-raisers
    student-organized fund-raisers
    cereal tops/etc. marketing tie-ins
    % of book sales for publishers (selling fiction/non-fiction books to kids: for example, Harry Potter was hugely promoted in the schools)
    over-priced unused textbooks
    sports fees/marketing merchandise
    failure of high school rigor: unprepared high schools students have to take additional courses at their own expense
    failure of high school rigor added a year to university in ‘distribution’ courses. (World wide, bachelors is usually three years, not the US four)
    post secondary level:
    unrefundable application fees
    tuition far past inflation pace
    extra fees
    room and board
    % of the selling fees to sell loans to students – that the schools receive (conflict of interest)
    (now school loans are a monopoly of the Dept of Education as written in ObamaCare)
    no refundable tuition/fees if no diploma is awarded
    useless degrees so students encouraged to try again in another diploma
    encouraging students to take lighter course loads to stretch 4 years to 5
    maintaining two tiers of course credits – transferable and non-transferable so some students are forced to repeat/pay for courses because the course they thought was transferable wasn’t
    Not offering enough spaces for critical courses – some which can’t be taken again for a year – adding time and expense to the students
    credit card sales agents – universities pushing credit cards to students. colleges get % of all sales
    alumni fund-raising
    encouraging estate donations from wills of deceased alumni
    loans
    grants
    sports-sports-sports – an enormous business that could pay for itself
    % of state lottery sales!
    proposed legalization of marijuana – % of tax proceeds to go to… what else? education!
    state constitutions that make university a ‘right’ guaranteeing subsidies to state schools
    jacked up out of state tuition – charging more for the same product
    cheap labor from students
    not-for-profit tax status
    So, when they argue that the schools are failing because there are no good teachers because there’s not enough money to pay competent staff…
