Rush Limbaugh: America is in the Middle of a 'Cold Civil War'


What does a country do when an entire political party refuses to accept the results of a fair presidential election? Since before President Trump was elected, the Democrats decided to cultivate an alternative set of facts intended to frame him for a crime(s) he did not commit. They have sustained this false narrative on a daily basis for over three years, all the while aided and abetted by a compliant media.


Their hatred of Donald Trump and everything he stands for goes without saying. But that’s no longer their only problem. Their immense campaign to first undermine his campaign and their efforts to force him from office have left behind a trail of evidence. Countless government officials and bureaucrats have acted unethically, illegally or both. So, the invention of one crisis after another has become a desperate bid to avoid exposure and possible prosecution. With the IG report due any day now, and the knowledge that prosecutor John Durham’s team has been working hard since the spring to determine how it all began, they’re in panic mode.

On his radio show last week, Rush Limbaugh made the case that, although no shots have been fired, America is in the midst of a Cold Civil War. Limbaugh told his listeners:

It’s about making sure the American people do not learn the extent of the corruption in the Obama administration and the Democratic Party at large, and particularly among these people in the deep state who did what they did to deny Trump his election victory.

And that’s why Pelosi’s out there today saying that Bill Barr has gone rogue. If you need any evidence that they’re scared to death of what Barr and his team are investigating as to the origins of all of this, Pelosi out of the blue saying that Barr has gone rogue, they are doing everything they can to destroy everybody on the other side of this.

It encompasses overturning the election results of 2016, it is also about protecting and defending the deep state, the Washington establishment going forward. Their careers, their fortunes, their corruption. There are terribly big stakes involved here for these people. And Trump is on the cusp of overturning it and exposing it. They cannot allow that to happen.


The whistleblower complaint is the latest stage of this war. Limbaugh correctly notes that the report is manufactured political opposition research, just as Christopher Steele’s dossier was. And the entire Democratic Party, including the media, is acting as if it’s real.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) appeared on Fox on Friday morning and said, “Well, the president’s confessed.”

Asked what Trump has confessed to, he replied:

Well, he’s confessed to trying to hide the information in the whistleblower report! Well, look what Trump did. Trump took the transcript of the phone call and he put it over here in this secure area.”

He’s clearly hiding it. That’s a political move. The president’s ashamed. It’s the same as confessing that he’s guilty. We must move forward with impeachment.

The truth is that storing calls with foreign leaders has become standard operating procedure for the Trump administration. Shortly after he took office, the contents of his conversations with leaders of Mexico and Australia were leaked to the media. Ever since, they have stored all of his calls with world leaders in a secure area, out of necessity.

The disconnect between the whistleblower complaint and the actual conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is breathtaking. Here is the relevant portion of the call. President Trump said:

Good because I heard you had a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down and that’s really unfair. A lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your very good prosecutor down and you had some very bad people involved. Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man. He was the mayor of New York City, a great mayor, and I would like him to call you. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General. Rudy very much knows what’s happening and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him that would be great. The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news and the people she was dealing with in the Ukraine were bad news so I just want to let you know that. The other thing, There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it…It sounds horrible to me.


We have Biden on video telling an audience he did this. Then, when he’s called out on it, he spreads the lie that the prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, was corrupt. The opposite is true. Biden may want to read a sworn affidavit in an EU court in which Shokin describes the reality of the situation.

Trump’s request to find out more about Shokin’s investigation of Burisma and by extension, Biden’s son and Biden’s efforts to leverage U.S. aid to protect his son is perfectly legal.

Former President Bill Clinton signed the “Treaty with Ukraine on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters” in 1999. This treaty calls for cooperation between the United States and Ukraine in the investigation and prosecution of crimes. Given the questionable judgement and actions of Hunter Biden, and Joe Biden’s admission that he forced the country to fire Shokin, this is exactly the type of situation this treaty was intended to address.

Certainly, the Democrats realize this is a very shaky foundation on which to build a case for the impeachment of a President. Their manufactured outrage makes them look hysterical, desperate and disingenuous.

Still, Trump has been forced to defend himself against these allegations. Meanwhile, the lies are repeated on an endless loop by the mainstream media which is, unfortunately, where many Americans get their news and on it goes.

Limbaugh continued:

All we have is a deep state leaker probably related in some way to John Brennan. The New York Times already outed the guy as a disgruntled CIA person, and the guy simply leaks a bunch of stuff, has his report written with the assistance of staffers on the Democrat side on the House Intelligence Committee, and calls himself a “whistleblower” for the protections that it offers! You watch. Every other future leak of major consequence like this is all of a sudden gonna be called “whistleblower” because of the statutory protections that are granted to whistleblowers.

I can’t emphasize enough that there isn’t anything real about any of this like there wasn’t anything real in Trump-Russia collusion. Let me clarify. There was a lot real in Trump-Russia collusion, but it was all the things committed by Brennan, Clapper, Comey, Obama, McCabe, Strzok Smirk, and that whole cast of characters. That was real. That effort to undermine Trump — to spy on Trump, to get the election result overturned — all of that stuff was real.

The things they were alleging Trump did, none of it happened. They’re still lying about the Mueller report. Democrats are out there saying the Mueller report proves that Trump colluded, 16 different times now. No, it doesn’t. It doesn’t say that at all. The Mueller report concludes that there wasn’t any collusion between Trump and Russia. But the Mueller report was written as a pre-impeachment document anyway. The Mueller report was written to be used as it is.

It was written with all the footnotes and the careful sentence structure to be able to be cited the way the Democrats are citing it. “Robert Mueller found collusion 16 different times!” No, he didn’t. “Well, right there it is: The president probably… The president might have this and that… Somebody here said…” It’s nothing but hearsay. There’s nothing. But the sheer power of the ruling class is what is on display here, and their literal panic and fright over having it all upended.


I agree with Limbaugh that the country is engaged in a Cold War. Americans haven’t been this divided since the actual Civil War. The Democrats have declared war against President Trump and those who support him. Instead of bullets, they use lies.

It is also similar to what Americans faced at the time of the Revolution in that this is a fight against tyranny. We are fighting an enemy who seeks power over us. If the Democrats should prevail, America as we’ve known her, will cease to exist.
