The Solyndra company was supposed to be the showcase for Obama’s “green jobs” agenda – right before it went bankrupt in a scandalous free fall.
The week, Michael Savage talked about Solyndra, dubbing it “Solar-gate.”
However, he also told listeners an even bigger scandal was brewing – possibly one of the biggest in U.S. history: “Wired-gate is what I’m calling the LightSquared scandal. You aren’t hearing as much about that, but Wired-gate will affect our national security. It supersedes everything else this gang in the White House has done to America.”
Savage remembered the good old days, when only mobsters plead the 5th Amendment during congressional investigations, but this week during the Solyndra hearings, Savage quipped, Americans will get to see Silicon Valley Ph.D.s do the same thing (FREE audio).
It’s been out for more than a week, and Michael Savage’s debut thriller “Abuse of Power” remains a top Amazon.com bestseller. Now you can enjoy an excerpt from the “Abuse of Power” audio book, by clicking here.

The Howard Stern show may be brash and off-color, but it’s never been a hotbed of “progressive” nonsense. That is, until renowned singer Tony Bennett came on the show, ostensibly to promote his new album of duets. Unfortunately, the conversation veered into foreign and domestic policy, something Bennett might want to leave to the experts in future.
Bennett told Stern that “American foreign policies caused” the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. He also claimed that President Bush had told him in a private conversation that the Iraq War was a “mistake” – a conversation Bush’s people were quick to insist never took place.
The singer’s many defenders tried to mitigate damages by reminding everyone of Bennett’s advanced age and pointing out that in the past, he had been a staunch supporter of more respectable left-wing causes like desegregation and anti-apartheid.
But that’s precisely the problem: The 9/11 “truther” movement is full of weirdos who call themselves “leftists.” As far as Bennett is probably concerned, that means he’s still on the “right side of history.”
