    Rush's predictions on the left come to life

    More like see the light of day. I can't complain. I pray that the left exposes itself and it appears that my prayers are being answered nearly every day.

    Rush Limbaugh’s Predictions on the Left Come to Life

    Listen to the Article!






    By Jeffrey Lord | August 24, 2019 4:00 PM EDT
    For anyone who listens regularly to Rush Limbaugh, they are familiar with his thoughts on the far-left (the "deranged left" as he puts it) redefining America as a racist country founded in racism and also his thoughts on the increasing problems with a college education.

    And like clockwork, within the space of a week, examples of both pop up in the hard news.

    On the “America was founded as a racist country” front we have the lefty Slate to thank for publishing the transcript of a secretly recorded internal “townhall” at the New York Times. The meeting was called after the paper accurately headlined a story about President Trump’s post-El Paso and Dayton shootings speech to the nation as “TRUMP URGES UNITY VS. RACISM.” The headline caused an internal and (among lefties) external uproar, which brought about a dropped and changed headline which brought about the town hall.

    Here is an example of Rush, way back in February, discussing how the left is trying to rewrite the history of America.

    “Their animus and the thing that’s propelling the deranged left right now is their belief that this nation is unjust and immoral from the first day because it was founded by a bunch of rich white guys who enshrined slavery into the founding and creation of the United States. They also further believe that these white guys set up a country and government for themselves and their families and their descendants and so that only white males would actually ever benefit, have power, have wealth.”
    And here is this question from an unidentified Times staffer to Times Executive Editor Dean
    Baquet from the verbatim transcript of the Times town hall:

    “Hello, I have another question about racism. I’m wondering to what extent you think that the fact of racism and white supremacy being sort of the foundation of this country should play into our reporting. Just because it feels to me like it should be a starting point, you know? Like these conversations about what is racist, what isn’t racist. I just feel like racism is in everything. It should be considered in our science reporting, in our culture reporting, in our national reporting.

    And so, to me, it’s less about the individual instances of racism, and sort of how we’re thinking about racism and white supremacy as the foundation of all of the systems in the country. And I think particularly as we are launching a 1619 Project, I feel like that’s going to open us up to even more criticism from people who are like, ‘OK, well you’re saying this, and you’re producing this big project about this. But are you guys actually considering this in your daily reporting?’”
    And there it is. In a secretly recorded conversation at the New York Times, the so-called “paper of record”, there is a staffer saying exactly what Rush says today’s “deranged left” now believes.

    Again, here’s the shortened comparison:

    RUSH LIMBAUGH: “The left has a central “belief that this nation is unjust and immoral from the first day because it was founded by a bunch of rich white guys who enshrined slavery into the founding and creation of the United States.”
    NYT STAFFER: There is “…the fact of racism and white supremacy being sort of the foundation of this country.”
    Which is to say, Rush has long ago hit the nail on the head when it comes to understanding just what is driving the thinking of the modern American Left.

    Then there’s the business of getting a college education. Famously, Rush is a college dropout. His lifelong dream was to be in radio, and he believed the sooner he got started with a radio job - for which he did not need a college education - the better. Not to mention that he has frequently discussed the idea that today’s elite colleges are a breeding ground for leftism and the Deep State. Here, to cite but one example, is Rush back in February talking about the then-current scandal of celebrities bribing colleges to get their kids in the door. He cites a column by The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro.

    “Well, Shapiro went to Harvard. He got into Harvard Law. The story he tells in this piece is incredible, and it confirms much of what I have shared with you in terms of the purpose of the Ivy League. The Ivy League is the feeder network for government people. It’s the feeder network for people who end up in the Washington bureaucracy, the deep state, the administrative state. The Ivy League and elite universities — not just the ivies, ’cause Stanford’s a part of this; USC is a part of this.

    But these elite universities are the feeder networks — the training grounds, if you will — the educational camps for training and producing people to fill spots in the administrative state. Now, the administrative state comprises not just bureaucrats.

    The administrative state is made up of media people. The administrative state is made up of lobbyists. The administrative state, the deep state is made up of lawyers. It’s not just bureaucrats who are making G-14 or G-13 salary. It’s a tremendous number of people who make up the administrative state.

    And the people doing this have to be trained somewhere, and they have to be fed into the system from somewhere. They have to be properly educated. They have to be properly indoctrinated into the role of the administrative state. They think they’re great patriots, in many cases. Others of them know exactly what they are. But it is the effective transfer of power from the elected representatives of the people to a bunch of people we’ve never met, we’ve never seen, we don’t know who they are. We can’t petition them. We can’t get rid of them. We can’t fax ’em. We can’t call ’em.”
    Then, just this week, there is Fox’s Martha McCallum asking former Obama strategist Robin Biro this question:

    MARTHA: “In the past few years there’s been a big increase in the number of Republicans who say colleges and universities have a negative impact on the country, but among Democrats that’s not the case. What is going on here?”
    ROBIN BIRO: “What was interesting to me actually was that 20% of Democrats thought that way. I think if we were to look at that it probably has to do with the rising costs of education. You know, when textbooks cost you $200 a piece and you come out with his huge student debt and college is basically a checkbox now, and it just doesn’t have the value it once did. But also I think that it comes to people like Rush Limbaugh who’s been talking since the 80s about colleges indoctrinating liberals. I think that it causes some distrust.”
    Robin Biro was correct. Rush has indeed been talking about this for years. And today, more and more Americans are coming to believe that colleges are not there to educate but to indoctrinate. So what is the point of signing up for massive student debt unless there is some specific professional need - studying to become a doctor or lawyer etc. — to be achieved. (And recall that the well-educated Illinois lawyer Abraham Lincoln — like a lot of his fellow lawyers in the day — “read” for the law without ever going to college for a law degree.)

    Colleges have indeed become the breeding ground for the American Left, and as this has become increasingly clear more and more Americans, precisely as Rush has been saying for years, are starting to question the value of a “higher education”, seeing them as, in reality, indoctrination camps.

    So what do we have here?

    What we have here is someone - Rush - who has spent a lifetime thinking about and studying the American Left in all its many manifestations. Which in turn has led to his uncanny ability to understand and predict ahead of time exactly what their unspoken beliefs really are and what the reactions might be - and that somewhere along the line they will inevitably out their innermost thoughts.

    He has said for ages what the Left really believes about the founding of America - and sure enough, there is a New York Times leftist activist — er, “journalist” — in what was thought to be a “just among us Times lefties” town hall saying exactly, word-for-word, what Rush has long said the Left really believes. And there is Fox’s Martha McCallum reporting that more Americans — Republicans in this instance — have come to Rush’s belief and “say colleges and universities have a negative impact on the country.”

    In other words, understanding produces prediction which eventually makes news as fact.

    Now...see this part? I took it from the above article.


    But these elite universities are the feeder networks — the training grounds, if you will — the educational camps for training and producing people to fill spots in the administrative state. Now, the administrative state comprises not just bureaucrats.

    The administrative state is made up of media people. The administrative state is made up of lobbyists. The administrative state, the deep state is made up of lawyers.

We can’t get rid of them. We can’t fax ’em. We can’t call ’em.”

    THIS is why you see Hollywood kids and you see politicians kids getting into Harvard. and they're dumb as rocks. THEIR parents are taking care of them....their parents are conspiring against us using their little skulls full of mush to be trained to be our betters, to be our rulers...and they are nameless and faceless and they will be isolated from us, the rabble. We can't complain because we don't know who to complain to or how to contact them. They can't even be found to be terminated if a second civil war breaks out at some point in the future.
    THIS is why Lorie Loughlin and that other Hollywood wife paid hundreds of thousands to get their imbecilic moronic insipid daughters into GOOd Schools...this is why algore and Obama and the bushes sent their kids, the stupid ones to these schools. They're thinking ahead...same as why they have off shore accounts and estates in south America sitting over the world's largest aquifer. WE, are no better than cattle to them. OUR kids with perfect SATs and 4.plus plus plus grade point averages are denied admittance to these schools in favor of these wealthy dimbulbs.

    This is a plan that has been in the making for a long time. Take Hollywood for example. They run their mouths...and they are separated from us...from our opinions, our pushback, our ridicule and our fury.

    that's. too. bad.

    There used to be a program on NPR about science. It would always start off "I know more than you do, I have a master's degree in science".

    The truth about scientist is they don't really know jack shit about much at all. They all know what they think they know but all of what they know is subject to change or is mere conjecture. Take dinosaurs for example. You go into a museum and there is a skeleton of a dinosaur hanging from the ceiling. Oh wow we all say, that's really something. The truth is however, that is not actually a skeleton of anything. Its a plaster mock up based on a few bones found in a pile and a theory that measurements are consistent so if the bone found is perhaps a leg bone then the leg had to be x inches long, which means the hips had to be this big and the backbone because the hips were this size had to be this size and on and on. Twenty years later they discover the bone was not a leg bone but a fossilized tree limb or some other such nonsense.

    I was watching a program last night about the opening of King Tut's tomb and the "secrets" it revealed. In the course of a two hour program the meaning of the "secrets" changed several times and in the final analysis it became apparent the scientist didn't really know anything.

    The thing is Rush knew. I believe a lot of people knew what was going on with the Left before it started really exploding our daily lives.

    But we have to remember, and somehow wrap our minds around the fact that half of the people of this nation either indoctrinated a generation(or two) or have been indoctrinated to believe the crap load that the Left has to offer. Half of the nation believes that stuff down to their bone marrow and they are probably willing to die for it.

    How do we fix that?

    Yessiree, those scientists think they have it all down pat, that is until they are proven wrong. Which happens time and time again. A perfect example is history. All these PHD's spout how all these legends and stories from deep ancient times are all allegory, until bit by bit we discover these stories to be true. Cities believed to be nothing more than fantasy get discovered. People believed to be nothing more than someone's vivid imagination, suddenly are proven to have existed.
    The science has been removed from science, and all we're left with are politically correct cogs in the bigger wheel. Beholden to donors and grants, these "scientists" merely fill a demand of the political class.

    Exactly the same thing is consistently done with computer projections regarding phony Climate Change arguments. There is no science showing the Earth is warming - it is 1/8th of one degree hotter today than it was 100-years ago. The idea put out by AOC, a graduate of Boston College, that the planet will end in 12-years, is such nonsense most people just disregard it. Problem with Climate Change is people confuse pollution with climate. The Earth's temperature is controlled by sunspots, which run in cycles of about a decade. At the start of a cycle, the planet cools, at the end of a cycle, it warms. We are currently near the end of a 10-12-year sunspot cycle, so the Earth is a bit warmer. Sunspot's connection with the Earth's temperature is documented over 400-years of observation and measurements. The trouble with today's doomsday predictions (Greenland has had record snowfall the past five years, as just one example), is they all use computer projection - which doesn't work when it comes to climate. Think not, just watch the nightly curvy weather girls and notice they get the weather wrong 50% of the time, and are just mouthpieces. A computer is making the predictions. In Florida, our weather "experts" (of which there are none), panic the population with dozens of "possibilities" of hurricanes and tropical storms non-stop, and usually always get them wrong when the storm actually makes landfall, after two weeks of panicking the citizenry. Computer projections might work well in actual scientific fields, but it isn't worth a damn when it comes to climate and weather.

    I find it hard to believe that we had instruments that could accurately see the difference in 1/8 degree over 100 years ago. Accurately being the key word. But perhaps we did. There is much talk and discrepancy on google concerning this but since google is leftard biased no clear conclusion can be come to, IMO. What I find incomprehensible is that some people base their climate change conclusions using a data set of collected weather/climate observations barely 150 years old, on a planet over 4 billion years old. In conclusion, they don't know shit.
    I have a marvelous economy with words.
