Posted on 11/04/2019 2:22:55 PM PST by Libloather
RUSH: Pencil Neck is right now gonna little press conference, complaining about all the White House people that didnt show up to testify/give depositions, and so now hes talking about obstruction. Obstruction! I thought they had the goods with the whistleblower. What is this obstruction? Let me just Folks, any time Pencil Neck and the Democrats start talking about obstruction, what it means is the original charge is baseless. Remember Trump-Russia collusion? Zilch, zero, nada. What did they go to? Obstruction.
Here comes Pencil Neck today complaining about people that didnt come talk to him, the quid pro quo. Any time the Democrats say this, it is proof that their original charge is baseless. It means that Vindman and the whistleblower cannot withstand public cross-examination. This is what this means. I want to play you a sound bite quickly from Andy McCarthy, who was on Fox & Friends today to talk about what Schiffs next move is. Question: You say its time to get ready for the next sneaky chapter of this inquiry. What do you mean? Whats next? Whats Schiff gonna do next?
MCCARTHY: Theyre going to issue this report. The resolution doesnt just open up the process to the public or publicize the stuff thats gone on behind closed doors up to this point. What it does is it calls for Adam Schiff, who runs the Intelligence Committee, to write a report transmitting the findings and recommendations. Their plan is to take whatever of the underlying testimony that theyve had up til now whatever theyre gonna give us of that and theyre gonna append it to Schiffs report. And theyre gonna hope that what happens, you know, between that and coordinating it the media, that the public will basically read Schiffs report and not the hundreds of pages of underlying testimony.
RUSH: Just like they dont want you to read the transcript. They want you to believe what the whistleblowers secondhand version of it is.
RUSH: At any rate, back to Andy McCarthys answer here. I had to jam that in. Youll note the timing of that worked out perfectly. Andys bite here was 44 seconds, and I started it right on the dot, giving me five seconds to conclude going into the break. But let me break this down. See, Andy knows the game. He knows theres something coming. When this doesnt work or when one aspect of this doesnt work, theres gonna be something else.
Im telling you what it is right now. Schiff, hes still doing his little presser, and hes now off on obstruction. Where the hell did that come from? I thought they had Trump dead to rights with the whistleblower. I thought they had Trump dead to rights in asking Ukraine to dig up dirt, make up dirt on Biden. They dont have that. That didnt happen. You can read the transcript. Anybody can.
If everybody took the time to read the transcript they would be scratching their head, saying, What the hell is this all about, then? Theres nothing in this phone call thats the slightest bit odd. See, weve got a whistleblower who said he was deeply outraged, deeply offended, very worried about American foreign policy. Now we got a uniformed military guy, Vindman, backing it, Oh, its horrible, its horrible.
Even Kasich is out there saying once people see Vindman testify in his uniform, things will change. What do you mean, things will change? What Kasichs admitting is they dont have public opinion on their side for impeachment. Dont pay attention to these polls. They dont have it. Kasich knows nobody in Ohios talking about it. Nobodys talking about it anywhere that is in any way a reflection of these fevered polls. NBC found out. The audio sound bites of that are coming up.
So Schiff is talking about obstruction. Intelligence guided by experience. They start talking about obstruction, that means the first phase failed. Trump-Russia collusion failed. They started talking obstruction. In all of the two years of Mueller and Trump-Russia collusion, you ever hear about obstruction? Yeah, peripherally, tangentially but you didnt hear it as the primary thing. It was Trump colluded, he was a traitor, he cheated, he stole the election, stole it right out of Hillary Clintons pantsuit, or muumuu, whatever.
Then that blows up. They are off and running on obstruction, and they dont have a case on that. So here comes the whistleblower bought and paid for by Schiff, arranged for by Schiff. The whistleblowers a secondhand witness to the phone call. He wasnt even on it, he wasnt even there. Vindman passes off whatever he thinks is outrageous.
If you boil it all down, it means these national security guys folks, do not doubt me on this. And this is not just specific to Trump. It means that these people in the national security, slash, military, slash, intelligence complex of our government, they think they make foreign policy, not the president. Thats what this is really all about. Every president intrudes on their territory. But most presidents respect them, and most presidents listen to them, and most presidents bring them in.
Trumps told them to go pound sand from his campaign on. But Im telling you and I dont want you to doubt me on this the National Security Council and whoever, even some of the people Trumps appointed have been bad actors. McMaster is a bad actor. Hes part of this cabal. These are the people, by the way, that just still resent the hell out of Trump pulling out of Syria. He didnt listen to them.
And Im telling you, the national security structure, the administrative state that is the national security structure in Washington, which has as part of its membership generals and admirals, three stars, four-stars, and then the intelligence community, this little troika actually think they run foreign policy, not presidents. They are permanent. Presidents come and go.
Just like the State Department. Theyre part of the State Department apparatus, they think they run foreign policy. They thought they ran it during George W. Bush. Dont misunderstand. This is not specific to Trump. Its just worse because Trump does not play the game and include them and promote them and credit them and thank them. Hes out trying to drain the place of them.
So as James Carville said, This is an all-out war! This is a microcosm of the deep state, and it contains all these people, Clapper and Brennan, FBI buddies, they were all in on this. They think they run foreign policy. Like Vindman. I dont know Vindman, but Im gonna make a guess that Vindman is part of the structure that thinks they run foreign policy.
The president doesnt. The president takes their advice and implements foreign policy based on their advice, theyre permanent, hes transient, whoever he is, and Trump has come in and wrested control, doing everything upside down, and theyve got to get rid of him. This is not the way its always worked. So youve got a guy like Vindman and whoever else listening to Trumps call to the president of Ukraine, and they just cant believe you dont talk to a president that way.
Theres a certain way you speak, a certain way you behave. You just dont do it. And then you dont do this and you dont do that. So things that they wouldnt do because of their official decorum manual, they then pop up and say, This guys not fit. This guy has no business being president. We run foreign policy. This is all a turf battle, in addition to it being a deep state attempt to get rid of Trump and reverse the election results. Folks, the transcript is nothing!
Theres nothing in it that would even approach irregular, much less impeachable, and yet look at what these people are doing! Well, there is a reason. So now to Andy McCarthy, to parse his bite a little bit here, cause theres always the next thing. Obstruction means that something hasnt worked out. Gotta move on. So these rules that the House passed last week on the impeachment inquiry require that Schiff issue a report at the end of his testimony.
And this report will go a long way when they get to a final vote on whether to actually prepare articles of impeachment and do it for real. Andy said that the resolution that made the rules doesnt just even require the process to the public or publicize the stuff thats gone on. Remember, theyre making a big deal, Yeah, were taking it public. Were bringing it out from behind closed doors. Andy says thats not all this is doing.
In addition to the and by the way, its a phony show of going public. Theres a clamor. The Republicans are on strong ground, demanding, Youre impeaching the president. This has gotta be done in public. Its gotta be done bipartisan. You cant do it behind closed doors. Democrats say, Yeah, its probably a point. So, okay, well make it public. Well, yeah, theyre gonna make it public, pages and pages and pages and pages of stuff nobodys gonna read of the testimony.
Schiffs out there characterizing it. Republicans were allowed to ask questions. I didnt guide anybody. The guy can say whatever he wants. The media eats it up and spits it back out the way he wants them to. In addition to the reams of pages of testimony that are made public, Schiff has to write a report. Schiff can say whatever he wants in this report. But it calls for Schiff to write a report transmitting the findings of his committee and the recommendations.
So the plan is to take whatever the testimony is theyve had up until now and add Schiffs report to it. The reports gonna be much briefer; its gonna be much more succinct; its gonna be many fewer pages; its gonna be much easier to read. Why read thousands of pages of transcript when you can read Pencil Necks 25 pages and find out what went on? Its in that report, Andy McCarthy says, that Schiff is gonna dress this up and exaggerate and take liberties like he has been all along.
Because Schiffs gonna be confident that nobodys gonna go do a side-by-side comparison nobody that anybodys gonna listen to. The Drive-Bys will not go measure what Schiff says in his report against the testimony thats in the packet of pages released. So essentially this whole resolution to make everything public is nothing but a trick that enables Schiff to write a report characterizing what went on in there, which will then replace the actual evidence of the multiple pages of testimony!
Ill give you an example. Schiff, while conducting a public hearing, said that the president called the president of Ukraine and (summarized) told him nine times to dig up and make up dirt on Joe Biden, and dont get back to me until you do. Dont get back to me til you have it and until you have it, youre not getting a dimes worth of money from the United States.' Now, all of that was made up. Trump never said it, but Schiff did. It took 30 minutes for a Republican on the committee to call Schiff out.
That only happened because that member got a letter, an email from a constituent who was livid that not a single Republican objected and spoke up when Schiff was lying through his teeth about what Trump had said. Well, Im telling you that this report that Schiff is going to write is going to contain similar kinds of exaggerations that will require somebody reading a few days later and then popping up and saying, This didnt happen in our committee. This testimony was By then, it will be too late. You know exactly what I mean. Thats what Andys telling everybody to get ready for: More lying, more mischaracterization.
Its the next phase of nothing.
They literally have nothing.
RUSH: This is Andrew in my adopted hometown: Sacramento, California. Hi, Andrew.
CALLER: Hey. Betsy Ross dittos, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: Thanks for all you do.
RUSH: Brand-new items are available at RushLimbaugh.com in the Store tab, folks. Brand-new Betsy Ross and other items. Thank you for mentioning that.
CALLER: Hey, right to the point. The Democrats have always been headed to obstruction of justice. What they want is the grand jury material behind the Mueller report. Then the Judiciary Committee subpoenas Don McGahn, and theyre off and running with impeachment with obstruction of justice being the article of impeachment.
RUSH: Well, I think youve got a point because that was, I think, the original purpose of the whistleblower. Let me review this. Folks, theres so much I understand this like the back of my hand, and I want you to be able to as well, which requires repetition. So I beg your indulgence. The whistleblower met with Schiff. This whole thing is orchestrated. These people know each other. When Trump-Russia collusion bombs out, when obstruction bombs out, when Blasey Ford bombed out, when all these things bomb out, theres always the next phase.
And theyre already planned. So Schiff had met with the whistleblower, the whistleblowers tied to the CIA, to McMaster. Do you know that this whistleblower was the aid, the number one aid to McMaster at the National Security Council? These people have been in there spying on Trump since day one, folks or day 10. So, anyway, the whistleblower is supposedly (sniveling) so outraged by what I heard on the phone call. He didnt hear anything. Vindman told him. The whistleblower actually never heard the call. Secondhand, he goes to Schiff.
Well, that didnt happen. They orchestrate all of this. This is all part of a plan. The objective was for Schiff to announce this whistleblower, saying, The whistleblowers got this shocking, shocking thing that happened in a phone call. Oh, my God! Its worse than we ever knew! Oh, my God. And then they expected Trump not to release the transcript because of separation of powers, executive privilege, thinking of future presidents.
Congress can demand all they want, but they do not run the executive branch. Trump blew the plan up by releasing the transcript. The transcript
See, if Trump had held on to it, then Schiff was gonna shout, Obstruction! Obstruction! Cover-up! Cover-up! Thats how they got Nixon. Trump blew that to smithereens by releasing the transcript. But theyre still now focusing on obstruction cause they think it is a magic word for guilt.
That's the plan?
That's the plan.
Self-defense is obstruction of assault, apparently.
Yep New Democrat Fascist talking point.
“If you don’t cooperative with our close door kangaroo court, that is “obstruction of justice””
Again Democrat Fascist infantile children. NO CRIME MEAN NO OBSTRUCTION
They’re just feeding Horse Crap to their Propaganda Arm the MSM so they can Attack Trump 24/7
Theyre just feeding Horse Crap to their Propaganda Arm the MSM so they can Attack Trump 24/7
So they can CONTINUE to attack Trump 24/7.
Pencil Neck will claim to have a weasel whistle blower who claims that he heard from a gopher that lives on Trump's golf course that Trump failed to replace the golf divot. Seems all Pencil Neck's whistle blowers are weasels......
Then why are we allowing it? Why is this even happening? WHY ARE WE FRIGGIN ALLOWING IT?!?!?!?!
Bugeye McPencil-Neck is guilty of “Obstruction of Truth”!!!!!!!!!!
Let us not forget that whistle blower number one, Eric Ciaramella, who’s name can not be mentioned turned out to be a trump hating CIA spy and asset who has been spying on trump since day one.
Whistle blower number 2, US ARMY Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. A man who had been observed by his commander, personally listened to, watched, and witnessed making strong statements against our Nation, our military, and our President while on duty to Russian Military Officers.
Other US ARMY officers had reported him doing this on many different days and at many different times also while he was on duty.
Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman,then a Major, was given a strong verbal reprimand immideatly by his Lt. Col. CO and his conduct was reported to his bosses boss, a full bird Colonel, who notated and recorded Major Alexander Vindman’s conduct, his reprimand, and the validity of that reprimand.
Both of Vindman’s senior officers have stepped forward and told their stories. There are other witnesses of all of this out there as well.
That is why the whistle blower BS went away and now bug eyes is back trying to beg for an obstruction finding from someone. They will come up with more lies tomorrow, they always do.
It is now time for the Trump team to come to bat and they are going to be busting some balls.
I don't think it's fair to call this guy pencil neck.
After all his neck is slightly bigger than hers:
THE TRUTH ABOUT WHY ADAM SCHIFF IS A BUG EYED PENCIL NECK
Its Equalizer 2 time.

Do you recall the eraser that the students put on top of the pencils? Imagine his head as the eraser and his neck as the pencil.
