FLASHBACK: Rush Exposes Why Mueller Probe Was Larger ‘Travesty’ Than Smollett Hoax

Crushed it!

Whether it’s Michael Avenatti facing prison time, Special Counsel Robert Mueller clearing President Trump of any collusion with Russia, or Jussie Smollett getting off scot-free, America has had a busy week.

Radio legend Rush Limbaugh needs you to know something, though.

And that is, the Muller probe was far more of a “travesty of justice” than the Smollett hate crime hoax.

Here’s why…

From Daily Wire:

On his talk radio show Wednesday, Rush Limbaugh drew a connection between the two biggest stories of the week: the Cook County state’s attorney suddenly dropping all 16 felony charges against former “Empire” star Jussie Smollett for allegedly staging a hoax hate crime against himself and the final report by Robert Mueller that put a nail in the coffin of the Democrats’ and the Drive-By Media’s two-year “collusion” narrative. Both, he said, are a “travesty of justice” with political angles, but the latter is by far the most egregious.

Rush noted, “Now, folks, have you noticed all of the outrage over the dismissal of charges against Jussie Smollett? I mean, people are really, truly outraged over this — and I don’t blame ’em. This is a travesty of justice. It has not been explained. It’s been sealed, so nobody’s gonna ever really know what happened here. There’s no question that the Chicago PD is confident that they have the goods on the guy. They say they have even more evidence than they have revealed, and they were waiting to use it at trial.

Limbaugh then noted that there’s a potential political angle to the story that traces back to the Obamas. “There are now stories about maybe the Obamas got involved,” he explained. “Tina Tchen, who is a former Michelle Obama chief of staff in the White House, is a friend with the prosecutor and a friend with the sister of Smollett.”

Rush added, “What in the world would be in it for them to be associated with this, which justifiably has people really mad about a travesty of justice? Now it’s been learned that … Jussie Smollett’s community service was doing 10 hours or 18, whatever it was, for the Reverend Jackson. That’s it! He even made a big deal about demanding his $10,000 back.

The point is, said Limbaugh, that this is a clear “travesty of justice” that has justifiably outraged people, but as absurd as it is, it is only a shadow of the travesty that took place with the Russia investigation.

Limbaugh knows exactly how President Trump can win on the border wall. All he has to do is hang on.

Why? Because soon enough public opinion will sway in his favor.

From Daily Wire:

Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh took to the Golden EIB Mic Wednesday to offer President Trump some encouragement: Hang tough on the wall and public opinion will eventually swing your way.

Rush: “I’m just gonna tell you point-blank: Donald Trump can win this if he hangs on. It’s gonna be a few more weeks. It’s gonna be risky. But I actually, folks, really believe that if he hangs on and continues down this road, at some point there’s gonna be a shift in public opinion and the vast majority of the American people are gonna end up with him on this — if he hangs in there.

Rush: “He’s got a good start. There’s all kinds of really good, long overdue things happening that we’ve wanted to happen. Like 95% of the EPA furloughed? A lot of nonessential government workers on furlough? This is exactly what we’ve wanted: The deemphasis of government, the shrinking of government, the illustration of the (pfft!) redundancy in the number of people and policies and so forth. The idea that people can function, that their lives can go on even in the midst of a partial government shutdown. If he can just hang on a few more weeks.

New data finds that 60 percent of the businesses that shut down for COVID mitigation will be closed permanently and won’t be coming back.

New data from Yelp shows the terrible state of affairs, according to CNBC.

Yelp on Wednesday released its latest Economic Impact Report, revealing business closures across the U.S. are increasing as a result of the coronavirus pandemic’s economic toll.

As of Aug. 31, some 163,735 businesses have indicated on Yelp that they have closed. That’s down from the 180,000 that closed at the very beginning of the pandemic. However, it actually shows a 23% increase in the number of closures since mid-July.
In addition to monitoring closed businesses, Yelp also takes into account the businesses whose closures have become permanent. That number has steadily increased throughout the past six months, now reaching 97,966, representing 60% of closed businesses that won’t be reopening.

“Overall, Yelp’s data shows that business closures have continued to rise with a 34% increase in permanent closures since our last report in mid-July,” Justin Norman, vice president of data science at Yelp, told CNBC.

Congratulations Joe Biden, Anthony Fauci, and the entire Democrat establishment for destroying most of the country with you ineffective, unscientific lockdowns.

Six Foot Social Distancing Rule Has Murky Origins, Says Former FDA Chief

So…was it all just made up?

Published

on

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, there were plenty of precautions and guidelines being slung about, some a little more diligently than others.

This was a novel virus, after all, and the guidance of our experts was expected to shift somewhat as we learned ever more about the way this strain of coronavirus was going to behave.

But, as we’re finding out now, some of these suggestions may have come right out of thin air.

Scott Gottlieb, the former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), admitted during an interview on Face the Nation that the six foot social distancing rule recommended by public health officials for months on end was actually “arbitrary in and of itself,” and he noted that “nobody knows where it came from.”

Speaking with Face the Nation’s Margaret Brennan, Gottlieb discussed the rules and risks early in the pandemic, explaining that the Trump administration shifted its focus to the impact lockdowns and rules would have on the economy and children.

The admission came during a conversation about bringing children back into the classroom.

“And in fact, when the Biden administration wanted to open schools in the spring, this past spring, they got the CDC to change that guidance from six feet to three feet,” Gottlieb continued, admitting the original guidance was “arbitrary” and had unknown origins.

“The six feet was arbitrary in and of itself, nobody knows where it came from,” he said. “The initial recommendation that the CDC brought to the White House and I talk about this was 10 feet, and a political appointee in the White House said we can’t recommend 10 feet.”

One can only imagine how things would have turned out differently for the restaurant and live music industries had there been an understanding that this number wasn’t based in absolute science.
