The latest meme, the latest narrative, Donald Trump is mentally unstable. Donald Trump is insane. Donald Trump is unhinged. Donald Trump is mentally unsuited. That’s been on HBO with Bill Maher. It’s in the Senate with Al Franken on Bill Maher. Chuck You Schumer is echoing — well, he’s not echoing those sentiments per se, but he’s weighing in afterward to make it appear as though that is the case.
The effort to undermine the Trump White House is in full force. And one of the ways that they’re doing it, and I want you to be prepared for this. The Drive-Bys consider Trump to have an insatiable ego. They believe that above all else, Donald Trump is ruled by his ego. Meaning he wants to be loved and everybody to love him and he wants everybody to think that he’s a winner and that he’s the best. But, most importantly, that Donald Trump is obsessed with people believing that he is in charge.
Now, he’s just the president of the United States. I don’t know why that would be such a big sell. But their intent on telling people that that’s what Trump cares about. He doesn’t care about any of this other stuff. So one of the ways they’re trying to undermine Trump, you’ve seen these covers, TIME magazine and other stories saying Steve Bannon is actually the president, that Steve Bannon is actually the guy who is the power behind the throne. That is a psychological operation. That is designed to tick Trump off and fire Bannon.
They want Trump sitting in the White House seeing this stuff. “Oh, yeah? They think Bannon’s running the show? Well, I’ll show them.” He calls Bannon in and says, “Look, I gotta fire you. Everybody thinks you’re the president and you haven’t done anything to disabuse them of that, so you’re gone.” And then they’ll go to work on Stephen Miller next. They already are. He showed up on all the Sunday shows yesterday. The guy’s good so they’re going to go after him. They already are, details on that coming up.
And they’re gonna go after everybody and anybody who they think they could sell as the brain behind Donald Trump, the reason Donald Trump is president, the things Donald Trump says, the policies Donald Trump comes up with are not his. They are all the result of aides. And they want Trump to end up firing everybody. They want him to end up firing his cabinet. Folks, don’t laugh. I mean, it is kind of comical, but this is one of the ways that they’re going to go about this.
And Rush continues on the recent deportations:
These raids are not new. They’d happened during Obama. I remember commenting on it when they happened. I said, “Why isn’t the left enraged by this?” It’s ’cause Obama was doing it so it’s okay. “If Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents…” This is USA Today. This is from their story. “If [ICE] agents show up at your door, the ACLU advises you to not open it unless the agents can show a warrant signed by a judge. Ask to see it through a window or slipped under the door. Residents can ask through the door why the agents are there and request an interpreter if they need one.
“If there is no warrant, ask the agents to leave the information outside.” Now, bear in mind that the ACLU and the rest of the amnesty/open borders lobby say that we cannot enforce our immigration laws because it’ll make illegal aliens afraid of law enforcement and they won’t report crimes. Have you heard that argument? How specious is that! The ACLU and your average leftist in the open-borders lobby say that we should not and we cannot enforce immigration law, because that would be to enforce it on illegal immigrants, and that would make the illegal immigrants afraid of law enforcement all the time.
And then they won’t report crimes because they’re afraid of the cops! And we can’t afford to deport them. We can’t afford to track them down because it just makes ’em afraid of the cops, and we don’t want them… I’m sorry. You people in the media do a great job of that all on your own, making people afraid of the cops. So these raids are happening, planned during the Obama administration. Mexico is running ads encouraging illegals here to go get immigration lawyers and clog the courts.
“Thousands Poised to Enter Deportation Process After Mass ICE Arrest.” Obama conducted a bunch of immigration raids. The mainstream media ignored them, and nobody protested. This is a story from June 21st of 2011. I wanted to trick you. June 21st within 2011: “Thousands Poised to Enter Deportation Process After Mass ICE Arrest — The Obama administration announced Tuesday…” We’re now in 2017. This is six years ago, folks.
Well, five and a half years. “The Obama administration announced Tuesday that federal agents swept up 2,400 illegal immigrants in a nationwide raid last month, starting what will likely be a months-long process of figuring out what to do with them. The sweep, the product of a seven-day enforcement operation called ‘Cross Check,’ was described as the largest of its kind. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, in coordination with other federal agencies and local officials, tracked down illegal immigrant criminals in all 50 states and are now housing them in ICE jails across the country.”
Now, bear in mind this was reported factually. There’s nothing to see here, it’s just Obama being president, rounded up 2,500 illegals, they’re in jail in preparation of being deported. Contrast that with these raids this past weekend and how they’ve been reported, with everything I just told you, advice from the ACLU and USA Today on what to do if the agent shows up at your house, how to get a lawyer to clog the court system, to break it down and cause it to fail. It’s profound, the difference.
AP decided to do a fact check. “Are Immigration Raids the Result of Trump Policy?” Then they say, well, you know, Obama did some of this and Trump’s doing some of this and they conclude that truth lies somewhere in between. You know where most of the fake news in America is today? I’ve concluded there is never so much fake news as there is in a mainstream media fact check. I think these fact checks actually contain more fake news than the original reporting that they claim to be fact-checking.
Because this is clear obfuscation. “The truth lies somewhere in between.” No, it doesn’t. These recent immigration raids are the result of Obama policy, which is the United States. This is simply the law being enforced, which was the only point Stephen Miller was making to Stephanopoulos yesterday. This was simply the law being enforced. That’s all it is. What people are upset about, I’m telling you again, we have enough the leftist lamebrains who believe that judge in Seattle shut down all deportations. They think that’s what that stay means.
They think that that judge staying Trump’s executive order means all immigration is permitted. That’s what they think, many of them do. And they’re perfectly fine with a federal judge in Seattle being able to tell the president what can and can’t do when it comes to immigration policy. And so the reason they’re really mad is because they misunderstood the executive order in the stay and they think, “Trump is violating the law again. He doesn’t respect. He can’t be doing this. The judge said he can’t do this. The judge said there’s nothing that can happen until it’s decided.” Trump’s deporting people. It’s amazing, folks, the ignorance. It’s not amazing with the media the way they are. It stands to reason.
What is this? “Mexicans March Against Trump: ‘Bad Hombre for the Whole World‘ — Mexicans waved flags that read “Fuera Peña” or “Peña Out.” Accusations of government corruption, coupled with anger over his handling of the disappearance of 43 Mexican students in 2014, have sunk his approval ratings.”
Why is Mexico so threatened now? Isn’t that rather obvious, too? Because the United States is gonna make illegal aliens go through the process to become legal in order to stay here, instead of letting an entire country come in here and bleed us. That’s what they’re upset about. And do not doubt me. The left believes the world should be able to come in and bleed America, because the world suffers because of America. They really and actually believe that.
