As the trial of the Fort Hood killer finally began this week, Michael Savage reminded listeners why all the victims were unarmed and therefore unable to defend themselves, even though they were on a military base.
“Bill Clinton disarmed our troops,” Dr. Savage explained. “One of his first acts upon taking office in 1993 was to prevent soldiers on military bases from carrying their personal firearms. … The 13 bodies in that Texas morgue are the direct result of gun-control craziness as enacted by Clinton” (FREE audio).
As for the current president, Savage called Obama, “a cosmic joke foisted on America. Obama has lost his base except the welfare recipients and the fraudsters making billions of dollars. Even the legitimate left has turned against him.
“They see Obama flying here and flying there, and the next day he gives a speech about the poor,” Savage remarked. “Nobody buys it anymore, except the idiots at the bottom who don’t know anything” (FREE audio).
Rumors abound that Limbaugh and other major talk radio stars are doomed after being dropped by one of their syndicators, Cumulus. Rush assured listeners that he’s not going anywhere and his show will remain No. 1 for a long time (FREE audio).
“If liberalism is a religion, abortion is a sacrament,” Limbaugh declared in response to a sudden slew of news reports about women struggling to balance work and family. He noted that this topic has gone in and out of fashion since the 1960s.
“It’s almost like Time Magazine and these drive-by media places, they put these things on their calendars 25 years ahead,” joked Rush. “And when the day arrives 25 years in the future, time to start recycling liberalism” (FREE audio).
What was the real reason behind the closing of U.S. embassies worldwide? Aaron Klein has the shocking answer.
He also introduces listeners to Obama’s “nudge czar,” who is now in charge of trying to subtly change our “unhealthy” behavior (FREE audio).
Klein also unveils a plot to overrule the Constitution and alter American voting habits and John Kerry’s conspiracy with the European Union to blackmail Israel.
Levin’s name came up when Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus expressed approval of broadcaster Andrea Tantaros’ idea for a “talk radio debate” during the 2016 presidential campaign.
When Tantaros proposed scrapping the traditional debate format and letting Levin, Sean Hannity and others “interview some of the candidates” instead, Priebus said, “I actually think that’s a very good idea.”
It would certainly make for lively radio: On his show, Levin mused that Congress should consider itself lucky “we don’t storm Capitol Hill” to protest Obamacare (FREE audio).
Many have criticized Obama’s decision to cancel his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. However, Richard Grenell, former spokesman for four Ambassadors to the United Nations, told Laura, “It’s the best decision he’s made on Russia. Granted, it may be the only good decision on Russia he’s made,” adding that in his opinion, the president “doesn’t understand foreign policy.”
Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., came on to tell Ingraham about his fight against ongoing NSA surveillance programs, which he says are unconstitutional. He talked about the negative reaction he’s received from Karl Rove and other old guard Republicans.
Rove’s criticism, said Amash, is simply a response to “a new libertarian strain of Republicanism” that is less trusting of government (FREE audio).
When Oprah Winfrey compared Trayvon Martin to Emmett Till, Glenn Beck couldn’t contain his disgust (FREE audio).
The torture and murder of Till was one of the catalysts of the Civil Rights Movement, and the circumstances were very different from those surrounding Martin’s tragic death.
“How are these stories like each other at all?” Beck demanded. “It’s offensive, and I would go so far as to call it evil to compare these events.”
“The truth matters,” he added. “And this is what we get from the most trusted and biggest celebrity in America.”
