Dr. Savage warned listeners not to be distracted by the disastrous rollout of the Obamacare website.
“I have a little news for you,” he explained. “Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Axelrod and the others actually wanted the website and the system to fail. Why? So that the people who want free health care will demand a government-run, single-payer system” (Free audio).
Savage also reported on atheist-activist “Mikey” Weinstein’s latest coup: forcing the Air Force Academy to drop the words “So help me God” from its honor oath.
“This man is a public enemy and a deviant of the lowest order,” Savage declared. “Why does the American military now turn to a twisted sister like Mikey Weinstein and ask this piece of garbage whether or not they can say ‘God’ in a military chapel?
“This would stop if we had a truly God-fearing president. [Obama] doesn’t even fake it” (Free audio).
This week, Limbaugh celebrated the launch of his first book in over 20 years. “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims” immediately flew back up to the No. 1 spot at Amazon.com, the same spot it held when Rush announced the new project back in September.
Despite that positive news, Limbaugh admitted he had been “ticked off all week,” particularly at accusations from the left that he and his listeners are “kook fringe people” (Free audio).
“We’re not the fringe kooks,” Rush insisted. “They are. Obama is a fringe kook. … Only 20 percent of the population of this country self-identifies as liberal. By definition, that’s fringe, and I’ll add in the characterization of ‘kook.'”
Klein contacted the Department of Homeland Security this week, and their interaction was revealing, to say the least.
Longtime American allies are now switching their allegiance to China and Russia; Klein explores the implications of this tectonic shift in U.S. foreign relations. He also asks if the time has come for Israel to pre-emptively strike Iran and pays a visit to former residents of the Jewish communities of the Gaza Strip to find out how they are fairing post-evacuation (Free audio).
“Most of us don’t give a damn about that damn website!”
Levin begged listeners to switch their focus from the broken Obamacare website to the very existence of Obamacare itself (Free audio).
The real problem, he said, was the government’s insistence on “interfering with our basic human right” to enter into a private contract, in this case, with an insurance company. He warned against complacency and giving in to the temptation to simply go along with the implementation of socialized medicine. At the very least, Levin reminded his audience, they need to “punish those who are punishing you” – the politicians who voted for Obamacare.
Congressman Matt Salmon, R-Ariz., didn’t impress Ingraham, with flip-flopping throughout their interview about immigration reform and what Laura called his “naivete” and flippancy.
“There are so many people in our country who would rather sit on public assistance than work,” Salmon stated.
Was he calling Americans lazy? Ingraham asked him. Salmon waffled. Ingraham countered that such statements are politically unwise and counterproductive.
On the topic of immigration reform, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, was more impressive, stating bluntly: “I am not going to go down the road of conferencing with the Senate bill, and I told (House Majority Leader John) Boehner that he needs to stand up and make that very clear. We’re not going to conference with the Senate, period. … I was invited to the White House yesterday, and I refused to meet with the president because I saw it as a political trap.”
On a (slightly) lighter note, Bill Blatty, author of “The Exorcist,” joined Laura on Halloween to talk about the new director’s cut of the classic horror film, released to mark the movie’s 40th anniversary (Free audio).
Glenn Beck is already a multi-media superstar. Is he about to conquer the world of Hollywood movies, too?
This week, magician and author Penn Jillette revealed that Beck is set to co-star with his far-left broadcasting rival Lawrence O’Donnell in Jillette’s upcoming film, “Director’s Cut.” The horror spoof sees the two hosts teamed up to play “the ultimate cop/buddy team.”
“I’m friends with Glenn Beck,” Jillette explained. “I’m friends with Lawrence O’Donnell. I don’t believe anyone else in the world can claim both of these things. And I disagree with both of them, almost as much as they disagree with each other.”
