Dr. Savage was outraged by reports that “Obama and the contractors went around the law” and permitted the Air Force to install cheap Chinese parts into F-35 aircraft – parts that might be encrypted with chips for the purpose of espionage.
“How could people not be in prison or in front of a firing squad for this?” Savage wondered. “In my time, if a contractor did that and they found out who did it, they’d try him, convict him and execute him. It’s called treason,” (Free audio).
Savage continued to press the case against granting amnesty to illegal immigrants. Along with concerns about the importation of communicable diseases from Third World countries, Savage explained that the massive influx of cheap labor is contributing to unemployment among American citizens and the “Balkanization” of the country (Free audio).
Obama’s announcement that he plans to continue to reside in Washington, D.C., when his term ends was mostly ignored by the media, except for Limbaugh, who boldly declared: “He is going to stay there to make sure that whatever he’s done to remake this country is not changed, is not unwound. I guarantee you folks, even after he’s out of office, he is going to be treated by the media as though he’s still president.”
Limbaugh then turned his attention to the “Bridgegate” scandal rapidly surrounding New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. The governor’s public statements on the issue, Limbaugh noted, conflict with each other (Free audio).
“Why can’t he sleep two nights ago if he only learned about this one day ago?” Limbaugh asked.
Meanwhile, the latest ratings from TalkStreamLive indicate that Limbaugh has retaken the No. 1 spot from Michael Savage, who remains “a strong second.” The shift doesn’t reflect Savage’s recent move to prime afternoon drive time, however.
Who is watching the NSA watchdogs? Aaron Klein is – he exposes their shocking statements on government surveillance of American citizens, even while they’re driving.
Klein cuts through the complex story of accused spy Jonathan Pollard and explains why the movement to free him from prison has escalated. The radio host also revealed John Kerry’s troubling plans for “Palestine,” and looked into case of journalistic malpractice at the New York Times (Free audio).
Levin’s new book, “The Liberty Amendments,” and his views on nullification – the idea that states can refuse to enforce unconstitutional federal laws – continue to spark heated debate. At the Washington Times, Michael Lofti contends that Levin has misinterpreted the concept, and cites experts like Judge Andrew Napolitano to back up this claim.
Levin has also been accused of engaging in “a quid-pro-quo transaction with the Senate Conservatives Fund, promoting the right-wing group after it spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on his book.” It’s a charge Levin denies, calling one of his accusers an “idiot.”
Columnist George Will joined Laura Ingraham for a wide-ranging conversation about foreign and domestic affairs (Free audio).
He called the invasion of Iraq a mistake, and questioned the concept of “nation building” in general.
“If we could hit the rewind button back to 2003,” Will told Ingraham, “We’d say not to do this.”
Asked about Liz Cheney’s withdrawal from the Wyoming Senate race, Will called her a “neocon” who is “out of touch with the drift of the Republican Party.”
“This Chris Christie story is everything we despise in Barack Obama,” said Beck, as the New Jersey “Bridgegate” scandal gained traction. “How is this different from the IRS scandal?” (Free audio).
He added that the issue perfectly illustrated the need for smaller, less powerful government at all levels.
Beck surprised some listeners when he came to the defense of MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry, who was forced to apologize for joking about Mitt Romney’s adopted African-American grandson.
“She apologizes, for what?” asked Beck. “It was a break with comedians.”
“I don’t apologize for my opinion or political views,” he added. “No one should be forced to. We do not have a right as people to not be offended. We do have a right to speak our mind.”
