So the media claim there are links between President Trump’s campaign and Russia.
They make wild claims about a “set-up” that had Donald Trump Jr. meet last year with a woman claiming to have information from Russia about Hillary Clinton.
The media also make claims about inside-the-Oval Office events, about the president’s temper and about the president’s family.
But it’s all part of a media-led “coup” attempt against the president of the United States, talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh told his listeners Wednesday.
Limbaugh had spoken on Tuesday about the latest “scandal,” that of Trump Jr.’s meeting in 2016 with “Russian lawyer” Natalia Veselnitskaya.
The New York Times reported the president’s son had been told during the 2016 presidential race the lawyer had information from the Russian government about Clinton. But the meeting lasted only a few minutes and included none of the promised dirt. Trump Jr. said he considered it such an insignificant event, he didn’t even mention it to many others.
Limbaugh said Tuesday the mainstream media have been almost oblivious to everything but “this never-ending just line of absolute garbage crap.”
“If [the 2016 meeting] is this incriminating, if it is this deadly, if this is the nail in the coffin, why only now are we hearing about this? It’s got all the ingredients of a story except fact. It has all the ingredients necessary to create illusions and write narratives, but it doesn’t have any substance,” Limbaugh said Tuesday.
On Wednesday, he explained the big picture.
“What we are in the middle of, and what we have been in the middle of essentially since election night and all the days following, is a silent coup.”
Go now to WND’s Superstore for “American Greatness,” where Chris Buskirk and Seth Leibsohn explain how the conservative elite, Washington insiders and the mainstream media were out of touch with reality during the 2016 presidential election.
“There has been an effort, silent, meaning nobody is actually expressing this desire verbally. Nobody is saying this is what’s going on. But there is a coup underway, being led by the media with accomplices in the Democrat Party and a number of international players, to reject the outcome of the election, to undermine the presidency of Donald Trump, and, if the wish list were realized, to get rid of him.
“That is what we have been living with. That has been the sole purpose of the news business since the day after the election. And in this ensuing period of time, say from early November to now – what is that, nine months? – the American people have had to endure a daily assault of innuendo, allegation, accusation, supposition with literally no evidence whatsoever to support any of the charges that have been made.”
He pointed out that the “Drive-By Media” use “anonymous sources” for their allegations.
“We have literally no evidence of the primary purpose of the media for the past nine months. We have no evidence that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to alter the outcome of the election and thereby cheat Hillary Clinton out of what was rightfully hers and the Democrat Party’s and the media’s,” he said.
“In all this time, virtually every allegation, virtually every bombshell has added up to what? Nothing. There has been nothing in terms of hard, cold, substantive evidence, something that you can touch, something that you can see, something that convinces you inalterably that it’s true. None has been produced by anyone at any time.
“Now we arrive at this latest episode involving Donald Trump Jr., and let’s explain what happened here. Back in June of 2016, Junior gets an email from a music promoter in the U.K. named Goldstone, who claims to have a friend in Russia who is a pop musician and is the son of a powerful oligarch there who knows Putin and claims that high levels of the Russian government has information on Hillary Clinton that they would like to share.”
He said the whole scenario smells of a set-up.
“This just stinks. I mean, the whole thing smells rotten. It’s too pat. It’s too exactly what they would need for yet another allegation. At the end of all of this, the premise under which this meeting was to take place never happened. No information from anywhere about Hillary Clinton was passed to Donald Trump Jr. or anybody else that was in the meeting. Nothing. There was absolutely nothing.”
He pointed out that the “honey pot” who wanted to meet with Trump Jr. has since been proven to have connections to the Obama administration, through “pictures … all over the place now sitting behind people in the Obama administration during Hillary’s time.”
