As the vote on the immigration bill approached, Savage declared, “The big lie is that all immigrants are equal” (FREE audio).
“Now look at the cultures that have come into America,” he went on. “All have contributed something, some good, some bad. The issue is, can the country afford 30 million illegal aliens and their extended families? Can it absorb them? The answer is no.”
After real estate mogul Donald Trump denounced NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden as a traitor and hinted that he should be executed, Savage was outraged.
“In my mind, Snowden is a hero,” Savage explained, “because he blew the whistle on the spies who were targeting innocent Americans. Just because Snowden is on the run, that doesn’t make him a traitor (FREE audio).
“What does it tell us about our nation, that Snowden has to seek asylum in some of the most despotic nations on earth? Think about that. Then Donald Trump goes on Fox News, calls Snowden a spy and advocates for his execution,” Savage continued. “As far as I’m concerned, Donald Trump has now become political burnt toast. I used to respect Trump, but not now.”
After the Supreme Court struck down Bill Clinton’s Defense of Marriage Act, Limbaugh focused on Justice Scalia’s dissent, which he called, “breathtaking” (FREE audio).
“Now, if you ever had any doubt that the left is intolerant and fully invested in the low art of personal destruction through smear tactics,” Rush told his audience, “just read Scalia’s dissent in United States v. Wade. In this dissent he quotes the majority and illustrates how they smear – in a Supreme Court ruling, smear – supporters of traditional marriage as a means of justifying their opinion.”
Limbaugh also warned that immigration reform “will effectively end the Republican Party.” Amnesty, he noted, “will send the Republican Party base fleeing” – which he suspects will many of the GOP’s elite, snobbish “big donors” happy (FREE audio).
Unlike almost every other journalist at home and abroad, Aaron Klein continues to follow the Benghazi massacre story. He revealed new information about the late U.S. ambassador’s “secret activities” that might shed some light on his death and on Obama’s insistence on arming the rebel faction.
Speaking of suspicious deaths, Klein addressed conspiracy theories behind the sudden demise of investigative reporter Michael Hastings in a fiery car crash and demonstrated that NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden is linked to “a who’s who of the anti-American radical left” (FREE audio).
“It’s an abomination!”
That was Mark Levin’s reaction to the Supreme Court’s “DOMA” decision, which supposedly paves the way for states to legalize “gay” marriage. Levin called the decision “incomprehensible,” noting that only “five people” – the justices who’d voted to strike down the Act – were now determining how millions of Americans will live their lives (FREE audio).
Levin then turned his attention to President Obama, who he says should be impeached.
The president’s recent speech about “global warming” prompted Levin to predict: “He’s gonna do this without Congress. He’s gonna set up a Soviet-style, five-year, ten-year plan in industrial policy. Drive up the price of fuel. Drive up the price of electricity. Destroy more jobs. Shutter more businesses. This is the Obama transformation. This is what Marxists and their ilk and their pedigree, this is what they do” (FREE audio).
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., came on to talk about Obama’s plan to reign in coal industry subsidies.
“We’re really struggling in Kentucky,” he told Laura. “We have thousands of workers at risk. This is an unnecessary battle, because if you look at emissions from coal plants, they have been going down for 40 years” (FREE audio).
Beck’s critics crowed when he left Fox News, but since his departure, Beck’s net worth has almost doubled.
Two years on, Beck has landed at No. 34 on Forbes’ “Celebrity 100,” after raking in $90 million from his various media ventures.
Beck told the magazine that anyone can get his or her “15 minutes of fame” these days. The challenge is to make it last.
