    This Budget Was Designed to End the Trump Presidency

    This Budget Was Designed to End the Trump Presidency

    RUSH: I do not know how the president can sign this budget. Wait ’til you hear — and you may have heard some of it. But wait ’til you hear what’s in this budget. When you hear what’s in this budget, it will become crystal clear what the purpose of this budget is. Think of this budget as a branch office of the Mueller investigation trying to throw Trump out of office.


    JOHNNY DONOVAN: And now, from sunny south Florida, it’s Open Line Friday!


    RUSH: Well, I’m telling you, it’s the deep state, I don’t care where you go, it’s the establishment trying to get rid of Donald Trump any which way they can. And there is no question — just wait ’til you hear it. You know what? I’m gonna stop characterizing it and I’m just gonna give you some stuff, and you will understand why I, practically alone yesterday, was suggesting that this thing be vetoed. And do you remember why I said it should be vetoed?






    Even before I had gotten time to get into the nuts and bolts of this it was patently obvious to me that this budget is designed to separate Trump voters from Trump. This budget is designed to make Trump voters think that Trump’s presidency is irrelevant. This budget is designed to make Trump voters concluded, “You know what? There isn’t gonna be a wall and there isn’t gonna be anything serious on immigration and so having Trump be president is meaningless.”



    That’s what this budget is designed to make you think, but after it’s signed into law. It’s 2,200 pages. There is no way anybody could have read all of it and digested it in the limited time they had before the vote.



    Greetings, folks. Rush Limbaugh, Open Line Friday. Whatever you want to talk about is fine. Telephone number, 800-282-2882. And if you want to send an email, it’s ElRushbo@eibnet.us.
    So the president is threatening to veto the omnibus budget deal over the lack of funding for the wall and the fact that the Democrats don’t care about the DACA fix. Their baby — and they don’t care about it. Mr. President, that’s chump change compared to the other reasons why you should veto this thing.



    Now, the Drive-Bys and a number of people, “He can’t veto, he can’t veto it. Many members have already gone home and are traveling internationally on the beginning of their two week recess vacation.” Oh, that’s why he can’t veto it. Folks, this budget is a slap in the face. This budget is the Washington establishment, both parties, telling Donald Trump to go to hell, is what this budget is. And they’re doing it with smiles on their faces.

    There was an appearance on the Fox Business Channel today by Dave Brat, Republican from Virginia. Grab audio sound bite No. 1. I want this to be the first kickoff point of the recitation of things in this budget. I’m not gonna characterize ’em because you’re gonna figure ’em out the moment you hear them, but here’s Brat. He was tacking to Stuart Varney, who said, “Now, you’re gonna say, yes, Mr. President, veto this thing because it’s a beast. Is that right, sir?”






    BRAT: This is the premier issue he ran on, and he’s getting nothing at the end of the year. And this is our big leverage moment, and the folks back home may not know, the Senate put in the last budget that they’re not even gonna do a budget next year. So no chance for wall funding, no chance to get the Goodlatte bill in. The major immigration piece of legislation in the House that addresses the DACA, brings the kids out of the shadows, but in exchange for rational policy going forward that the president believes in. So, yeah, he ought to end this thing until he gets something of what he asked for as president when we have the House and the Senate. It’s quite amazing.



    RUSH: The main thrust of this bite, people may not know, the Senate put in the last budget that they’re not even gonna do a budget next year. So no chance for wall funding, no chance to get the Goodlatte bill in, Meaning this budget is gonna last a lot longer than the six months we’re being told it’s gonna last. But let’s go through some of the details in the bill. Because, folks, I’m gonna have to characterize here before I start reciting some of these things. It’s so obvious what this is.
    This is the Washington establishment, and they’re doing everything they can to destroy Donald Trump, to block his agenda using the budget as a means of doing so by making sure that none of his agenda is paid for and that efforts to implement that agenda are going to be blocked by virtue of things they have added into this budget. The Republican Party is not aligned with their elected president. They are not helping him advance his agenda. They are stonewalling it.



    And it’s time to stop thinking of the Congress as made up of Republicans and Democrats. This remains what it always has been, establishment versus outsider, ruling class versus Trump and his voters. And we’ll have an exclamation point on that because I’ve been holding on to something that I ran into in the past couple of days that just opens the floodgates on the Russian collusion side of all of this. And I’ve been waiting for confirmation of what I have discovered, and I got some of it today so we’re gonna be able to go with that, but all things in due time.



    This budget is an absolute disgrace. Apart from the absence of any dealing with the DACA kids, the immigration aspects of this budget are nothing more than a huge victory for the open borders people! A huge victory for the anti-enforcement of immigration law people. Nancy Pelosi was gloating on the floor of the House. She said to the president, “If you want to think you’re getting a wall, you just think it and sign the bill.”






    I mean, they’re openly challenging. They’re openly mocking Trump. “Oh, you think you’re gonna get a wall? Well, go ahead and sign the budget, see if you get it.” They think they’ve got the guy. They think they have hoodwinked him. They think that they have tricked him into basically making the rest of his presidency irrelevant.



    The administration wanted an increase in the number of ICE agents. This budget rejects that request. Many of those agents were supposed to work on work site enforcement, meaning making sure that companies were not hiring illegals and hiding them and sheltering them.



    Those agents are not going to be hired. They’re not paid for. The Democrats have made sure that American employees who profit off illegal immigration are gonna have less to worry about because there aren’t going to be hardly any agents at all running around trying to find people, illegal aliens who’ve been hired.



    “In addition, the amount of space for detention of apprehended illegal aliens has been reduced to less than what is currently being used,” meaning we’re gonna face an overcrowded situation to the point it’s gonna be of no use arresting illegal immigrants because there will be no place to hold them. There was a Trump administration “request for added space,” additional space, “especially important given the continued high levels of ‘unaccompanied’ minors and family units still” pouring into the country.



    So essentially, the House “has voted to continue a policy of catch-and-release, where illegal aliens, as under Obama, are apprehended and then let go into the U.S.” That is not gonna change. There is no mechanism to detain additional numbers. In fact, the space has been reduced. Sanctuary cities? Measures that would have restricted money to sanctuary cities “were stricken from the budget bill.”



    Sanctuary cities will continue to thrive. Measures that would have taken money away from sanctuary cities were rejected, meaning the money from the budget in Washington will continue to be spent and allocated to support sanctuary cities. When you get to the aspect of the budget dealing with the actual border wall, the budget provides money for 33 miles of new fencing on the Texas border. You ready for this?



    This budget “specifies that none of [the budget and none of the construction] may resemble the wall prototypes that the Border Patrol has been testing for the past few months.” The budget put together by the Republicans in the House of Representatives specifically states that whatever limited funds are used on fencing for 33 miles in Texas cannot “resemble” anything to do with “the border wall prototypes” that Trump went out and looked at the other day.




    In other words, the budget does everybody it can to erase the whole concept of a wall, paying for a wall, and anything that looks like those prototypes that Trump went out to visit. “The [budget] bill prohibits any kind of border barrier in the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge, a bird sanctuary on the Rio Grande in South Texas. A fence or wall wouldn’t interfere with the birds, of course, since they could fly over it; the objections to building there have centered on the fact that it would restrict access to bird-watchers.



    “The bill provides funding … to the secretary of defense ‘to enhance the border security of nations adjacent to conflict areas including Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, and Tunisia…'” In other words, the United States budget is going to provide money to the secretary of defense to build walls and to enhance border security in Jordan, in Lebanon, in Egypt, in Tunisia, but not here. Not in the United States. And that’s, folks, just a smidgen — this whole bill with the spending, the lack of anything done on DACA, which remains unconstitutional.


    We know that the Washington establishment wants open borders. We know that they want no end to illegal immigration, and this budget pretty much encourages an open-borders policy because it limits the ability of ICE to apprehend and detain illegals crossing the border. We’re going to only build a 33-mile stretch of cheap little fencing that is not allowed to look anything like an actual prototype of a wall that Trump had commissioned to be designed and that he went out to look at in California.


    The overall spending itself is an abomination, with no recognition that there’s any restraint whatsoever or any calamity could result from it. The Democrat Party is doing handstands. They are happy as they can be. The only reason for that is that they’re getting everything they want because it appears to me that the opposition to Donald Trump is being defined by the Democrat agenda. Opposition to Donald Trump is being defined and implemented as the Democrat agenda, and that agenda is being paid for.



    That agenda is being aided and abetted by this budget. And with Dave Brat, Republican representative from Virginia, saying that there’s a little sneaky provision snuck in this thing at the last moment claiming that this is it for a while… You know, Paul Ryan went out and said, “It’s only six months! Come on, folks. Back off. Six months! It’s the best deal we could have gotten. It’s only six months. It’s better than two weeks.”



    Grab sound bite No. 1, the first part of it anyway. Here’s Dave Brat again on the Fox Business Network just this morning…



    BRAT: This is the premier issue he ran on, and he’s getting nothing at the end of the year. And this is our big leverage moment, and the folks back home may not know, the Senate put in the last budget that they’re not even gonna do a budget next year. So no chance for wall funding. No chance to get the Goodlatte bill in, the major immigration piece of legislation in the House that addresses the DACA, brings the kids out of the shadows, but in exchange for rational policy going forward that the president believes in. So, yeah, he ought to… He ought to end this thing until he gets something of what he asked for as president when we have the House and the Senate. It’s quite amazing.



    RUSH: It’s… I don’t know. It’s amazing how we’ve gotten to this point. Now, I know that Paul Ryan felt a sense of panic earlier this week on Wednesday and had to race up to the White House. ‘Cause apparently Trump learned some things in it that he didn’t like, and so Ryan had to race up there and assure Trump everything was okay. And he did. He raced up there and assured Trump that everything is okay. But all of this is why I suggested yesterday that this thing has to be vetoed.


    It’s the only leverage the president has.


    It’s the only way.


    Ronald Reagan had the same circumstances. He didn’t have 60 votes in the Senate, and Reagan did veto, and there were government shutdowns. But this… The best way to describe this is this is the Washington establishment basically dissolving the Trump agenda, just eating it up, just eliminating it. By not only not funding it, by funding other things in the budget that are going to directly assault the Trump agenda on many of the things that got him elected — immigration being No. 1. It looks like it is not realistic that Trump would actually veto this now, but that’s the only choice he’s got.


    Because, I’ll tell you, the timing on this… Whatever happens, this is the last piece of significant legislation that’s gonna happen before the midterms. So this is gonna be the thing that is the last big congressional action that will serve as informing American voters of what’s been going on. This is designed to make Donald Trump look ineffective. It’s designed to make it look like his presidency doesn’t count for anything, that, “All the lies he told during the campaign, it turns out he can’t deliver on.” It’s really designed to make him look isolated, alone, and ineffective.



    BREAK TRANSCRIPT



    RUSH: I’m serious, folks. This is an emergency and it is a tragedy. This budget is, in effect, the legislative division of the Mueller investigation, the purpose of which is to get rid of Donald Trump. The Washington establishment remains the Washington establishment. The Washington establishment remains… They’re angrier than ever, by the way. They’re angrier because they haven’t been able to get rid of Trump up to now.

    They are livid, they are at their wits’ end, and it’s about to come crashing down on ’em on the Russian collusion side of this, on the corruption of DOJ and the FBI. That’s about to come crashing down on them. I’ll explain that in the next half hour. But what this is is nothing more than an attempt by the Washington establishment to neuter Donald Trump. If they can’t get rid of him, then they’re gonna make sure his presidency accomplishes none — from here on out — of any part of his agenda.



    This is the Washington establishment standing up and daring Trump to take them on. This budget not only doesn’t fund his agenda. This budget makes it practically impossible for his agenda to be implemented, particularly on the primary thing that got him elected, which is dealing with the border and illegal immigration. Stop thinking of Congress as Republicans and Democrats. You’ve got to think of that as one unified group of people, establishmentarians who are working in a coordinated way to thwart and nullify the election and agenda of the Trump presidency.

    It’s a Nuclear Win for the Swamp Over Trump


    RUSH: Folks, I’m being very guarded here because this is one of those things where you wake up the next day and you look back at what you said, is there anything you’d want to change, and I don’t want to go overboard here. But I just have a really bad feeling, because I cannot tell you what this — and I don’t want to dispirit or depress any of you. That’s why I’m really holding back here.






    But this is the biggest, this is a nuclear win for the swamp over Donald Trump. I cannot tell you how big this is. I tell you what. Members of Congress, House, Senate, Republican, Democrat, they better make sure that there are not any hidden iPhones videotaping their celebrations this weekend, because that’s what they’re gonna be doing. And they’re not gonna be celebrating that a Republican was defeated. They’re not gonna be celebrating the Democrats won again.



    They’re gonna be celebrating that the Trump threat has been neutered. That’s what they’re gonna be celebrating. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if Robert Mueller’s already called in his congratulations to ’em. And maybe James Comey has too. And it won’t be long before McCabe’s asking for his job back.



    It was a huge opportunity. Such a game-changing opportunity. This was made for Trump to be Trump. This whole thing, all week long, this was made for Trump to be Trump. This was when the establishment could have had its back broken. This, right here, is how the establishment could have had its back broken. That’s what’s frustrating to me.
