Wednesday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh talked about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announcement of the deal that funds the federal government through New Year’s Day without funding for President Donald Trump’s wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.LIMBAUGH: I suggest,
Washington came together to pass this thing in like 10 minutes. On the other hand,$ 5 billion, a measly $5 billion– when compared to the size of the federal spending plan for border security– is an impossibility. Someone needs to describe to me how this took place.
I know you individuals are seeking to me to explain it to you, and do not stress. I’m being rhetorical here. I have a description for this. However it’s simply … It’s the example that just rubs me raw, it sends individuals into orbit because something that is not on somebody’s primary watch list, some issue that it’s not having a nationwide clamor to get this done, an issue that primarily benefits 187,000 people and whoever their political sponsors are simply sails through.
The point is it can be done on something the American public is not even actually aware of, not demanding for, and does not know when it’s occurred. There’s some newspaper article: “Senate Quickly Passed Trump-Backed Lawbreaker Justice Reform Bill.” There are 87 votes in the Senate for it, and yet things the American individuals have expressed for years that they want, have voted over and over and over once again to say that they want, have sent somebody to Washington from outside the political system to get done, and there’s no hope.
There’s not a shining possibility that this is gon na get done. And they celebrate and they praise and they commemorate in Washington over this. Some of this stuff is just so aggravating and maddening and defies any sort of typical sense explanation. This is swamp habits at its best. This is the biggest illustration of just how much of a game all of this actually is. We’re made to believe that it’s ruthless and real. And, meanwhile, it’s simply all a video game, how this stuff takes place, in Congress, in the House, in the Senate in Washington.
It appears like a great deal of people’s worst worries might be realized and that the president is preparing to cave on getting any loan for the wall in the current spending plan. In reality, TheHill.com– the Capitol Hill newspaper– is declaring, quote, “Trump’s Concession Paves the Method for Legislators to Reach a Compromise and End This Congress,” suggesting the Republican-controlled Congress, “Without a Partial Government Shutdown.” That’s been the objective, to end this Congress without a shutdown? That’s how we’re gon na define success?
It’s not how we specify success. It is apparently how inside-the-Beltway specifies success, (impression) “Oh, look what we did. We avoided another government shutdown! The Republicans are bowing down. “Hosanna! Hosanna! We’re saved again. We’re not gon na get blamed for a government shutdown.” Meanwhile, the border stays large open and the Democrats are gon na be controlling your house in just a couple of weeks. They’re now celebrating and informing the president, “You can’t get any loan from anywhere else in the budget.
” We’re not gon na let you. We’re gon na make certain that you can’t develop this wall. There isn’t gon na be a wall. We don’t want there to be a wall,” and obviously there’s no method. Even though we can designate whatever money we require for criminal justice reform or Planned Being a parent or whatever the hell else liberal provision is demanding your tax dollars, any quantity of cash, require even $1.6 billion. That’s been managed in this offer to conserve a shutdown.
Not a cent above and beyond what’s currently designated is gon na be spent on protecting the border of this country which is wide open still. “However we’ve got ta compromise on no federal government shutdown, Mr. Limbaugh. It’s a good Christmas. It’s a terrific day for Washington.” This is textbook. It’s a book example of what the Drive-By Media calls compromise. Trump gets nothing and the Democrats get everything, including control of your home in a couple of brief weeks.
In fact, I just mentioned this, Trump’s gon na get less than absolutely nothing because this compromise strips out the $1.6 billion for the wall that the Senate Appropriations Committee had already approved weeks earlier. That’s gone too. Not just, exists not gon na be five billion, there isn’t gon na be $1.6 billion that was already designated. So it’s an even better compromise in the minds of the Drive-By Media and the denizens of the swamp. Not a cent. Forget wall. Think border security.
I still preserve that a wall is symbolic. I know a lot of people believe that the wall was in fact gon na be built, and I was one of individuals hoping and supporting to be constructed, but even without the wall, there is still the requirement for border security. The wall was a representative of that. There isn’t going to be a penny additional for that. Yet while we are in debt to the tune now $21 trillion we are spending cash left and right on things that are in direct contravention to what the purpose of costs on the wall would be!
Now, the stock market. The way this game is played, the stock exchange dive … TheHill.com and the Drive-By Media are even blaming the stock market’s nosedive on Trump’s danger to close down the federal government, on Trump’s wall, on attempting to do something about migration! Which is pure caca. What’s driving down the stock exchange is the Federal Reserve guaranteeing to raise rates of interest to decrease this out of control economy, which, if you check out the news, is gon na enjoy economic downturn in the next 3 weeks; so what in the hell are we doing raising interest rates?
What we’re doing is trying to lower the Trump administration. What they’re doing is trying to lower the Trump administration if they have to crash the marketplace … Not crash it. If they have cause the marketplace to go down, if they have to slow down the economy, it does not matter. If they need to do criminal justice reform and fund Planned Being a parent and all of this things and not spend an extra penny on border security, then that’s what the hell is gon na be done.
Everything that takes place, magically there’s a left-wing response to it. At a federal court, any amount of development whatsoever is fulfilled immediately with left-wing opposition. They stand up and state, “Nope, you can’t do it,” and discover a federal judge somewhere to state, “Nope, can’t do that, not gon na do that.” Everything gets closed down. Everything gets stopped. Other than what needs to be closed down and what needs to be stopped. So it’s clear that the left, the Democrats, the Drive-By Media now turning to turn Trump’s promise on the wall into George H. W. Bush’s “Read my lips: No brand-new taxes.”
This is precisely what the goal has actually been. Trump dedicates to a wall; it’s part of his campaign 2016. We’ve understood from the get-go they were never gon na support a wall. Everyone that’s in favor of a wall has actually understood there wasn’t gon na be any support for it. I pointed out the other day there’s not any person in Washington beyond a couple members of Congress euphemistically. However I’m speaking about the whole Washington facility, the swamp, they do not want the wall. They don’t want any part of it. They do not desire any limitations on unlawful migration.
That’s why Trump was elected to bulldoze through all of that. You wish to add insult to injury? The United States has actually promised $10.6 billion, twice as much as has actually been requested for the wall. A $10.6 billion help package (Are you ready for it?) to Central America and southern Mexico. And you understand what the theory is? The theory is that if we supply help cash to these war-torn, hardship stricken locations we can build ’em up and their individuals will not want to leave.
We have actually been hearing that because 1992. That was the function of NAFTA. NAFTA was gon na construct up all these Central American southern hemisphere hellholes. It was going to construct ’em up, have roaring economies down there and their individuals wouldn’t wish to leave. How did that exercise? How lots of times have we provided whatever amount of loan to all of these hellholes in Central and South America for the express purpose we’re told of constructing up their economies so their individuals will not want to leave, and they simply continue to leave in even larger numbers and now signing up with caravans of thousands.
Which, by the method, have not gotten in and the caravans are beginning to dissolve, but the caravan crowd is now demanding reparations, $50,000 per participant to leave. The caravan has damaged Tijuana, Mexico. They haven’t discovered a method to get in, however that’s just except a wonder. The Associated Press has the story today. “U.S. Pledges $10.6 Billion Help for Central America, Southern Mexico.” You heard that right.
