MARK LEVIN: It’s been confirmed by Reuters tonight, the Attorney General himself signed off on the search warrant. And it was vetted by senior Justice Department officials. And we all know why, don’t we? We all know why Holder was specifically involved in this case, don’t we? Because it’s The Fox News Channel, that’s why.
Oh I know we don’t have proof of this , we don’t know that.
So we have an Administration, an Imperial Administration, that conducts itself like Putin’s Russia. That conceals information. And I have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt what is obvious as a matter of reason and logic. They couldn’t wait to take a shot a Fox.
RUSH: You know what, if that’s the case, if Fairleigh Dickinson University says that the Fox News audience is the least informed, then I think it’s perfectly okay to bug their reporters. I’ll rethink this. If Fairleigh Dickinson University says that the Fox News audience is the stupidest and the least informed, then that’s cool, then it’s okay to bug their reporters. Ladies and gentlemen, this man speaking from the bottom of the barrel in which he lives, lied intently to Mr. Snerdley about what he wanted to talk about. And it took him much longer to get to his point with these endless implications that I was gonna cut him off, and he deserves to be cut off because he’s a liar.
What he said he wanted to ask me was, how can I claim that Obama declared the War on Terror is over. He doesn’t think Obama said that. That’s what he claimed he wanted to talk about. And instead he wants to insult the Fox audience. Now, if he would’ve said he wants to talk about the Fox audience being the least informed, we’d have talked about it with him, but he thought he had to sneak in here and then imply that I am unfair to callers when I am the most polite and the most tolerant as I’ve just demonstrated with this guy.
RUSH: So this partisan attack on Tea Party and other conservative groups concerning tax-exempt status is still going on. There are groups who have applications in, and they’re just languishing, no action has been taken. So the IRS doesn’t have to flat-out deny you your status. They can just delay the approval. So you’re sitting out there in limbo. And that is continuing to happen. And the upshot of it is that a lot of Tea Party money was never raised, and therefore was never spent on this campaign. A lot of Tea Party enthusiasm was tamped down. A lot of religious Tea Party groups never got into gear. They were never authorized to. They were never authorized to start. They needed to be able to fund-raise in a tax-exempt way in order to get starts and they weren’t.
There is no question about it now. That’s what this is all about. There was a flat-out effort to suppress the conservative vote in this election while everybody was listening to the allegation that conservatives wanted to suppress the black vote or the gay vote, all the attention focused on photo ID, to be able to vote. The Democrats, “That’s racism. That’s an effort to suppress the black vote.” You remember all during that campaign the Democrats worried about Republican vote fraud and suppressing the vote. Well, where it really happened was the government, the IRS, another political arm of the Obama regime literally suppressing conservative voting, fundraising, and turnout.
RUSH: I had an observation, and I wish I woulda had it while the program was on, and that is, “No wonder the speech was going so long. He’s trying to change the subject.” And that’s exactly what that speech yesterday was, a change of subject, trying to get everybody off the IRS and the Benghazi scandals. And then this Code Pink babe, Medea Benjamin shows up, she was the protester. Nobody will convince me that that wasn’t set up.
Here comes this woman protesting while she’s getting exactly what she wants. The woman wants Club Gitmo shut down, which means we’re gonna have to come up with a replacement in our thriving merchandise business for Club Gitmo stuff. They’re gonna become collector’s item stuff if they actually do shut it down, which remains to be seen. But she was getting everything she wanted. Her dreams were coming true, and yet there she is protesting, and there’s Obama stopping and listening to her and telling everybody while he didn’t agree with a thing that she had to say, we ought to listen to her. We ought to listen to what that woman is saying, “even though I don’t agree with the things she’s saying,” which is not true.
The president agrees with pretty much everything she was saying. This is the first time that Code Pink has not been thrown out of wherever they were protesting. That woman went on and on and on and on and on. So the whole thing was staged.
