What’s the Real Purpose of the Brazile Book?


I told Mr. Snerdley here about a half hour ago, this Donna Brazile thing, something about this, folks, there’s too much of this now. Let me cut to the chase. I think the Brazile book, the whole thing apparently is being excerpted. There’s no reason to buy the damn thing ’cause it’s in the newspaper, it’s on the Drive-By news and websites every day, every chapter of the book (excerpts).


People are dutifully following each excerpt, and this book is trashing Hillary Clinton. It’s trashing Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz. It’s trashing everybody that was in the Democrat National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign hierarchy. There is a reason for this. It goes back to one of the points that I made late last week that has now echoed all over the fruited plain. This is the first tell-all or the first burp that we’ve had from somebody close and inside with the Clinton apparatus, the Clinton machine.


We’ve not had tell-all books like this about the Clintons. We get ’em about everybody else. And there’s just too much of this now. My red flags, my suspicions have been aroused. They are working real hard, Brazile and whoever else is part of this, they’re working real hard to make us turn our heads over here and take a look at what she’s writing and what she’s saying and following it, getting caught up in it like a soap opera, while over here where we’re not looking, something’s going on. There’s too much of this. I mean, there’s four or five new stories today that are sourced from the Brazile book.


So, I’ve been asking myself, what could the real purpose of this be? You start from a position you — by experience and intelligence — must consider, and that is the Democrats are great at distraction and misdirection. And I think we have a clear example of it here. Brazile, and whoever else is helping her, is taking our attention and, in this case, it’s being focused on Hillary, which I don’t think is incidental or coincidental. I think there’s a reason Hillary Clinton’s being trashed, beyond Brazile trying to save her own skin.


I don’t think that’s what’s going on here at all. I think Brazile has got something else going over here where we’re not looking. I’m trying to figure out what that is, ’cause there’s too much of this. It’s just an onslaught now. So when I think I have it figured out, I will pass it on.


In fact, I may even turn it into a contest. What do you think I think Brazile is doing? And you get it right, you get an iPhone X and a fast charger. No, I will not condition the giveaway of an iPhone X on that. But I do believe that there is something going on that we’re not meant to see.


There’s two aspects to this. One of them is destroying Hillary and the Clinton machine. There’s no question that is an objective. But then why? Why? Hillary’s not a threat anymore. People think, “Well, she is Rush. She won’t go away. She keeps out there saying she’s gonna do this and gonna do that, and the Democrats don’t want her around. They gotta take her out.” I understand that. But Hillary’s not gonna win anything again.


And now the latest stories are zeroing in on her health, how sick she was, how sick she looked, how dangerous it was, how everybody was thinking she can’t be the nominee, we have to replace her. There’s even a story that Obama was telling Biden to get ready.


So something is up, and it’s not just an expose on Hillary and Donna Brazile covering her rear end over the mistakes that were made that led to the loss in 2016. They’re sweeping Hillary out of the way and attracting everybody’s attention while they do it because something else is percolating or effervescing over here that we don’t know about yet.


No, I don’t think it’s anything else they’re trying to cover up. No. It’s about their future plans. I’m not thinking cover-up. I’m not thinking they’re trying to cover up some other scandal. No, As far as they’re concerned, they don’t have scandals. No, It’s something that is percolating for the future that everybody’s being distracted from and Hillary being taken out.


Now, I’ll give you one other hint. The reason to take Hillary out is? 2020? I mean, remember, Hillary’s running around telling everybody she still wants to run ’cause this is hers, man, she’s owed this. This is her entitlement, first female president, yada yada yada. So she’s telling people she wants to give it a go. Her husband’s telling her, “No, don’t. Forget it.” But she won’t go away. So for whatever it is they have planned, they gotta get her out of the way. And that’s what this is. Are you getting closer to maybe understanding what I may be thinking here?


TRANSCRIPT BREAK for callers


RUSH: Let’s get started on the phones. People want to weigh in. We’re gonna start in Sequim, Washington. Larry, great to have you, sir. How are you doing?


CALLER: Oh, great, Rush. Greetings from the Left Coast.

RUSH: I appreciate that. Thank you.


CALLER: I have a theory about the Donna Brazile story, and I just wonder if she didn’t have her eye on a presidential run by ratting out the Clintons and the Democrat Party. There’s gonna be a certain amount of the centrist vote, and Republicans could just fall in love with her for being a woman of virtue for telling the truth.


RUSH: Oh, you think that Brazile is setting herself up to run after…? I hadn’t thought of that. She did do the manhood-size contest with a bunch of guys on the Democrat side, and I think she won, actually, which does surprise me. Donna Brazile with larger manhood package than many of these Democrat guys. But, no, I… That’s not what I’m thinking. You could be right, but I don’t think Donna Brazile… I don’t think that’s her area of interest. I don’t think that’s what is on tap here. But you are close to what I’m thinking, nevertheless.


RUSH: Doug in Oxford, Michigan. Great to have you on the program, sir. How you doing?


CALLER: I am doing very well. It is such an honor to speak with you.


RUSH: Thank you, sir.


CALLER: I have a guess as to what you were thinking about the Donna Brazile book. My opinion is I think that she’s in cahoots with the Obamas and I think Michelle is gonna take a run at this and she’s trying to get the Clintons out of the way. And I think that they’re still fuming over some of the things that went on and what Bill had said in regards to Obama and —


RUSH: Like, “He’d be getting our coffee,” yeah, two years ago talking to Ted Kennedy. I think this is it, frankly. I think this is exactly what’s going on here. I think Brazile is clearing the decks and setting it up that she’s gonna run the Michelle Obama campaign for president.


They want us focusing on Brazile and what she’s saying because while we’re doing that something else is happening over here that we’re not looking at. And my belief of the left is that everything is a con, because they cannot be honest about what they believe and what their plans are. They really would not win elections if that were the way they were.


Obama never came out and actually openly said what his intentions were. In certain parts of the country they can. In New York and San Francisco they can be totally open and honest what they are gonna do, but to win national elections, they can’t do that, which is ultimately a positive as well.


So everything they do is a con. Everything they do is a scam or a strategy or something. So this Brazile book, everybody’s asking, “Why’s she doing this?” “Well, she’s trying to cover her own rear end. The Democrat National Committee was a big mess, and she’s trying to make sure she doesn’t get tainted by it.” That’s not what’s going on. That’s what we’re supposed to think. What we’re supposed to think, that it’s all about getting rid of Hillary ’cause she won’t go away herself. There may be a grain of truth to that, but what I think is something far, far different.


I think part of getting the next Democrat nominee has to include getting rid of the Clintons. Not just Bill, but Hillary. They both have got to be relegated to the ash heap. The Democrats, I’m telling you right now, are thinking that if the Clintons still control this machine when we get into the 2020 presidential election cycle, they’re gonna lose it again. Hillary is every bit as hated as Donald Trump. They just don’t tell you this. She’s every bit as divisive. She’s every bit as partisan.


Hillary Clinton is every bit as polarizing as Donald Trump. But not with the media, so you don’t see that reflected. But Hillary Clinton is despised by more and more Democrats who are worried that the Clintons have a tight hold on this party, and until they’re forced to let go of it, they’re trapped. What I think Brazile is doing — some might say that it’s genius, I will withhold judgment — but I think Donna Brazile is trying to clear the decks for Michelle Obama to be the 2020 Democrat presidential nominee.


And if not run the campaign, although I think she’ll be intimately involved. This is about clearing the decks, getting the (chuckles) refuse out of the way. ‘Cause who else is there? Would somebody tell me who else? Biden? Give me a break. Who is it?  Not the Castro brothers.  The Castro brothers? Neither one of them have risen sufficiently. Kamala Harris is not the answer. They floated that trial balloon.They put it out there that she was raising money.


She was doing great here and doing great there and… (ringing) Who is calling me? (ringing) What the hell is this? (ringing) “Unrecognized number.” I never answer it anyway. They’re trying to distract me out there at the Clinton headquarters. The bottom line: Kamala Harris never… It didn’t work. That was a trial balloon. And the Castro brothers didn’t work. That was a trial balloon. And it isn’t gonna be Crazy Bernie again. Who else is it? 


Elizabeth Warren? I don’t think so. Where is the energy for Fauxcahontas? Folks, this party I think knows it’s in trouble. This is the great — what would you say? — dichotomy here. The media portrays the Democrats, of course, as the smoothest running, well-oiled power machine going. And they are in total disarray. I think they think that Brazile thinks — and whoever she’s with thinks — it’s Michelle (My Belle).
