Now that the curtain has been torn back revealing what really happened with the prosecution/persecution of General Flynn, we know just how boldly the media has been gaslighting us all along.
Gaslighting is when you knowingly tell a lie, manipulating the person to whom you are lying doubt the certainty of things they once knew to be true. Keep that principle in mind as you read what Rush had to say about the Flynn case. The Flynn case we will remind you, was the foundation upon which the entire takedown attempt against the Trump administration was built.
All of those Russian collusion attacks. The Mueller Report. The recusal of Jeff Sessions, leaving significant power in the hands of an obviously complicit Rosenstein. All of the Democrat gains in the House in 2018. All of those Time magazine covers, and NYT libels about Trump being Putin’s puppet… it was all built on this lie.
The lie that Flynn’s lawyer went digging for and finally exposed.
Let’s set this up properly with a clip from Trump’s new Press Secretary.

Here’s Rush with his take on the whole situation:
She went in and she burned the place down and she left no bodies. They had no choice but than to dismiss charges after Sidney Powell had exposed the Mueller investigation and the Department of Justice for all of the illegal activities in which they had engaged to get a conviction on Flynn. They needed Flynn out of the way. They needed Flynn not as national security adviser.
They needed him out of the way so that their investigation of Trump could go on without Trump knowing about it. And there are many other reasons they wanted to get rid of Flynn too. Obama hated his guts. But, man, look at what else we’ve learned in addition to all that. James Clapper. We now know, because of the release of transcripts, James Clapper — testifying under oath before various congressional committees.
Quote: “I never saw any direct, empirical evidence that the Trump campaign or somebody in it was plotting or conspiring with the Russians to meddle with the election.” Clapper testified to that in 2017! He testified! John Brennan did the same. These people were all testifying under oath that they hadn’t seen a shred of evidence that Trump or anybody in his campaign was plotting or conspiring or colluding with the Russians to meddle with the election.
Now, there’s a lot of people that knew Clapper had testified to this, and not a single one of them leaked that he was lying through his teeth every day on CNN. We have put together a montage of Clapper and John Brennan starting in 2017 all the way through 2020, appearing on CNN and a couple of other places.
I want you to keep in mind as you listen to this, Clapper was revealed to have testified, quote, “I never saw any direct, empirical evidence that the Trump campaign or anybody in it was plotting or conspiring with the regulations to meddle with the election.” Now our montage…
CLAPPER: (7/19/2019) I really do wonder whether the Russians have something on him.
BRENNAN: (3/21/2018) The Russians may have something on him personally.
CLAPPER: (12/18/2017) What a great case officer Vladimir Putin is. He knows how to handle an asset, and that’s what he is doing with the president.
BRENNAN: (10/2/19) He knows that Russia interfered on his behalf. He really is hoping that his pal Vladimir is going to come through once again.
CLAPPER: (10/7/2019) The Russian interference, the Russian meddling…
BRENNAN: (8/19/2018) He called publicly on the Russians to find Hillary’s emails! Collusion means cooperating!
CLAPPER: (7/26/19) The Russians meddled — and successfully so — in the election of 2016. That cast doubt on the legitimacy of that election.
BRENNAN: (7/17/2018) I equate it to the betrayal of one’s nation — aiding and abetting, giving comfort to an enemy.
CLAPPER: (4/18/19) What we have here is a case of collusion.
BRENNAN: (10/16/19) The champagne corks were going to be popping in Moscow.
LEMON: (2/19/2019) Do you agree, the president the United States, is a Russian asset?
CLAPPER: (2/19/2019) I completely agree!
RUSH: Uh… (chuckles) Yeah, I’m doing my best to control what is a natural tendency to real rage and anger here. This is so beyond the pale, and there needs to be some serious accountability here. Now, you can’t go get somebody for lying on television. It’s not a crime. But these people ought to be finished. There ought to be nobody left in media who would hire them.
They have probably discredited themselves in their so-called area of expertise, intelligence and intelligence gathering. This is just… Again, the man testified: “I never saw any direct, imperial evidence the Trump campaign or somebody in it was plotting, conspiring with the Russians to meddle with the election.”
James Clapper, July 19th: “I really do wonder whether the Russians have something on him.” John Brennan, March 2018: “The Russians may have something on him personally.” James Clapper, December 2017: “What a great case officer Vladimir Putin is. He knows how to handle an asset, and that’s what he’s doing with the president.”
“The president’s a Russian agent,” says James Clapper on two occasions, lying through his teeth!
John Brennan, October 2019: “He knows that Russia interfered on his behalf. He really is hoping that his pal Vladimir is gonna come through once again.” Clapper, October 2019: “The Russian interference, the Russian meddling.” Remember, he testified he never saw any evidence, any empirical evidence of any of this happening, because it didn’t. It didn’t happen.
There never was. Folks, we lost the House of Representatives because of this. We lost two years, 2-1/2 years of an agenda being implemented. Who knows what other damage resulted to this country because of this, and half of the country — statistically half of the country — was believing every word of this. We had news organizations winning Pulitzer Prizes for their reporting on this.
Let me remind you of one of the stories, because the question of Obama’s involvement in this has been solved. He was involved. He was well aware that Flynn was being wiretapped. He was ordering people how to behave and what to do in regards to it. Barack Obama was fully aware, involved, and giving orders on how this whole fake Russia collusion thing was to be implemented. —Rush Limbaugh
The media and the left lied to us. They knew they were lying to us. They even PAID people to lie to us.
The ‘Resistance’ used it to hamstring Trump’s presidency, to thwart his electoral mandate, and to retake control in the House — which they immediately used to lay out an agenda directed at destroying the President, rather than serving the interests of those who elected them.
They want their power back and they have proven that they will stop at literally nothing to get it. But tell us again how TRUMP is the ‘danger’ to the Republic.
Let’s keep this in mind come November, and send them a message at the polls like they’ve not seen since Reagan, ’84.
