    Dear Rush, Ann, and Laura:
    President Trump is not “shocked” by anything in Washington. He does not need you to “advise” him of how the Establishment works. Stop trying to continue pretend that you know more, and are smarter than President Trump. You are simply entertainers trying to stay relevant. Please remember that.
    Signed: Someone who is smarter than you.

      My mistake is not turning the radio off fast enough when the oh-so-smart crowd starts yapping.

      I usually like Ann Coulter, but today when she said (essentially) that the only reason “we” the people of the United States of America voted for Donald Trump was so he would build the wall. . . I said ‘shut up’ and turned off the radio. Another voice who did not hear what was going on other than the voice she wanted to hear.

      Yes, you are far more intelligent than any of those people. Thank you!

    • No Rush is smarter when it comes to liberals!
      Rush was fighting the battle against liberalism when Trump was a democrat.
      Rush is much superior to Trump in his understanding of how liberal work!

        Really? I call him Rush Limp balls.
        The man who stands for nothing but his $ and has been a coward when it comes to standing up for the President who will lead the nation to become Great Again.

        But we can agree to disagree about Rush. It might be me.

        I have learned not to trust persons addicted to any sort of drugs to make solid decisions, nor to keep away from the drug if they “get off it.”
        I would never take important advice from an addict.

        Warrants Detail Rush Limbaugh’s Drug Use | The Smoking Gun

        I have never known a recovered addict, only those who try and fail, try and fail, try and fail…and rare are the ones who kick it forever. Most substitute something else, and sometimes the something else is just a legal version of the illegal version they got hooked on in the first place. Or vice versa.

        I have great sympathy, do not get me wrong; but I don’t look to them for advice on serious matters.

        The only reason I’ve been listening to Rush again (previously got tired of his snark against the “Trumpers” etc) is because he seemed to have at least somewhat have fully if belatedly found a seat on the Trump train. But in recent weeks I’ve noticed him becoming more preachy in his I-know-betterness and I was already contemplating a Rush buh-bye again. Nearly there. Insufferable pomposity I only tolerate if he’s pre-Trump.

        And yesterday Rush finally got to the–“Trump is fighting not just the Media and the Dems but most of the Republicans”— then he said “Folks it is the Elite in Washington against Donald Trump and US!” That is the closest he has ever gotten to the Uniparty concept.


    • indiana08 says:

      I agree. I was cringing when I listened to Rush act like Pres. Trump was blind sided by the democrats reaction (according to Politico no less). Pres. Trump understands how these people think. He worked in the world of real estate and development. It’s one of the slimiest business to work in and he was in the big leagues of it.

        It’s certainly as plausible as any other scheme:

        “FBI agents interviewed Mr. Nikulin twice since his arrest, he wrote, and each time asked him to confess to hacking American political targets. Mr. Nikulin said he refused their initial request last November, then received a second offer three months later.
        FBI agents asked Mr. Nikulin to admit hacking Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign, Democratic Party computers and American polling stations “on Putin’s orders,” he wrote. In exchange, he alleges, the FBI said he’d be extradited to the U.S. but ultimately given money, citizenship and a free apartment. [snip]
        An extradition hearing concerning Mr. Nikulin had scheduled for Thursday, May 11, in Prague, but proceedings were abruptly postponed until May 30 due to formal objections raised by defense attorneys involving language barriers and other issues, the Associated Press reported.”

    This is not being reported anywhere! Abbas is willing to sign a peace deal with Israel!!!!

    “Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has crossed the Rubicon and voiced “unprecedented” readiness to reach a peace deal with Israel, sources close to the efforts to renew talks between Israel and the Palestinians have told The Jerusalem Post.”

    “As reported earlier this week in Maariv and the Post, the person responsible for this change in Abbas is Ronald Lauder, the American billionaire and head of the World Jewish Congress, who is one of the closest people to Trump. Lauder has publicly said that he has known Trump for over 50 years and that he is a “great and true friend” of Israel.

    Before Abbas met with Trump last week, he stopped by Lauder’s house for dinner and got briefed on ways to win over the president. To some, it seems that Lauder has bypassed Sheldon Adelson as the most influential Jew in Trump’s circle.”

        Muslim lying is called Tuqyah. It is permissible to make treaties for expediency while weak but they are honored only until the muslims are strong enough to renew Jihad.

        This has since been removed from the internet (So what else is new) It is in both Arabic and an English translation I am not sure the Arabic will show.

        “The Tuqyah [practice of deception, lying or concealment for expediency]
        is allowed until the Day of Resurrection.” Allah said,

        [وَيُحَذِّرُكُمُ اللَّهُ نَفْسَهُ]

        The Prohibition of Supporting the Disbelievers

        Allah prohibited His believing servants from becoming supporters of the disbelievers, or to take them as comrades with whom they develop friendships,rather than the believers. Allah warned against such behavior when He said,

        [وَمَن يَفْعَلْ ذَلِكَ فَلَيْسَ مِنَ اللَّهِ فِي شَىْءٍ]

        (And whoever does that, will never be helped by Allah in any way) meaning, whoever commits this act that Allah has prohibited, then Allah will discard him. Similarly, Allah said,

        [يأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ لاَ تَتَّخِذُواْ عَدُوِّى وَعَدُوَّكُمْ أَوْلِيَآءَ تُلْقُونَ إِلَيْهِمْ بِالْمَوَدَّةِ]

        Allah said next,

        [إِلاَ أَن تَتَّقُواْ مِنْهُمْ تُقَـةً]

        (unless you indeed fear a danger from them) meaning, except those believers who in some areas or times fear for their safety from the disbelievers. In this case, such believers are allowed to show friendship to the disbelievers outwardly, but never inwardly. For instance, Al-Bukhari recorded that Abu Ad-Darda’ said, “We smile in the face of some people although our hearts curse them.” Al-Bukhari said that Al-Hasan said, “The Tuqyah is allowed until the Day of Resurrection.” Allah said,

        [وَيُحَذِّرُكُمُ اللَّهُ نَفْسَهُ]

        (And Allah warns you against Himself.) meaning, He warns you against His anger and the severe torment He prepared for those who give their support to His enemies, and those who have enmity with His friends,

        [وَإِلَى اللَّهِ الْمَصِيرُ]

        Allah encourages the believers to show enmity to the idolators and to dissociate from them, affirming that they do not deserve to enjoy a covenant of peace, because of their Shirk in Allah and disbelief in Allah’s Messenger .

        If these disbelievers have a chance to defeat Muslims, they will cause great mischief, leave nothing unharmed, disregard the ties of kinship and the sanctity of their vows. `Ali bin Abi Talhah, `Ikrimah and Al-`Awfi narrated that Ibn `Abbas said, “Ill means kinship, while, Dhimmah means covenant.” Ad-Dahhak and As-Suddi said similarly.

        [اشْتَرَوْاْ بِـَايَـتِ اللَّهِ ثَمَنًا قَلِيلاً فَصَدُّواْ عَن سَبِيلِهِ إِنَّهُمْ سَآءَ مَا كَانُواْ يَعْمَلُونَ – لاَ يَرْقُبُونَ فِى مُؤْمِنٍ إِلاًّ وَلاَ ذِمَّةً وَأُوْلَـئِكَ هُمُ الْمُعْتَدُونَ – فَإِن تَابُواْ وَأَقَامُواْ الصَّلَوةَ وَءاتَوُاْ الزَّكَوةَ فَإِخْوَانُكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ وَنُفَصِّلُ الاٌّيَـتِ لِقَوْمٍ يَعْلَمُونَ ]

        Allah says, if the idolators with whom you conducted peace treaties for an appointed term break


        (their oaths) meaning, terms of their treaties, and covenants

        [وَطَعَنُواْ فِى دِينِكُمْ]

        (and attack your religion…) with disapproval and criticism, it is because of this that one who curses the Messenger, peace be upon him, or attacks the religion of Islam by way of criticism and disapproval, they are to be fought. This is why Allah said afterwards,

        [فَقَـتِلُواْ أَئِمَّةَ الْكُفْرِ إِنَّهُمْ لاَ أَيْمَـنَ لَهُمْ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَنتَهُونَ]

        Therefore, strike the swords upon the parts that contain the devil, for by Allah, it is better to me to kill one of these people than to kill seventy other men. This is because Allah said,

        [فَقَـتِلُواْ أَئِمَّةَ الْكُفْرِ]

        (then fight (you) against the leaders of disbelief.)”

        [أَلاَ تُقَـتِلُونَ قَوْماً نَّكَثُواْ أَيْمَـنَهُمْ وَهَمُّواْ بِإِخْرَاجِ الرَّسُولِ وَهُم بَدَءُوكُمْ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ أَتَخْشَوْنَهُمْ فَاللَّهُ أَحَقُّ أَن تَخْشَوْهُ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤُمِنِينَ – قَـتِلُوهُمْ يُعَذِّبْهُمُ اللَّهُ بِأَيْدِيكُمْ وَيُخْزِهِمْ وَيَنْصُرْكُمْ عَلَيْهِمْ وَيَشْفِ صُدُورَ قَوْمٍ مُّؤْمِنِينَ – وَيُذْهِبْ غَيْظَ قُلُوبِهِمْ وَيَتُوبُ اللَّهُ عَلَى مَن يَشَآءُ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ ]

      This is the Ferguson M.O.

      Let a story run for months without any facts, 20 hours a day on cable news, until it becomes the “truth” in people’s minds. Then, when necessity dictates that the real facts are presented, they run the story for 2 minutes, scroll it along the bottom for an hour, and then shut the story down and move onto the next act of smoke-and-mirrors. This allows them to claim they were covering the biggest news story when it was news (that they created it is of no concern to them) and claim, rightfully but deceitfully, that they reported the facts later when they came out.

    DiGenova: FBI Agents Thought Comey Was A Hack, Crook; Fundamentally Dishonest!
    5 hours ago

    Earlier today, Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe said FBI Agents supported James Comey and for lack of better words, they hadn’t lost confidence in him.

    Now we know McCabe was lying. How can someone like this lead the FBI when he’s starting off a liar. According to the Daily Caller, they report FBI agents were angry Comey didn’t go after Hillary Clinton over the mishandling of classified information.

    He said there are those inside the bureau who are furious and feel embarrassed over all of this and they want to come out to speak.

    I just sent an email to the GOP telling them that I refuse to donate any money to them. I cited the ridiculous Russia investigation by Republicans as well as the false claim that the Democrats can shut down the government. The Democrats are the minority, but the Republicans are in bed with them to undermine the President.

    I also asked them why no one is investigating the wiretapping and leaks and the voter fraud in Detroit.

    If anyone else wants to email them it is We should all tell them we refuse to send them any money for the re-election of the various swamp creatures. That should wake them up.

      Unless you also tell them that you and others are setting aside the amount you would have sent the RNC so that you can support a Trump-supporting MAGA -supporting candidate instead of the usual RINOs.

      Tell them its a bipartisan effort, so they shouldn’t count on a Republican vs Democrat election in 2018. It will be a Trumpian vs Swampian election for certain.

      The only way to get in on the Trumpian movement is to disavow the RINO’s immediately.

      (It might not turn out that way in 2018, because getting the average person motivated or even vaguely interested is extremely difficult. But it might get some attention and make the RNC aware that

    “And then as you’ll remember, Hillary Clinton and others in the Democratic Party all but blamed him for her loss,” Brokaw said. “Now they’re defending him as the champion.”
