Calling it “the biggest mystery of my lifetime,” Dr. Savage pondered the fate of the missing Malaysian Airlines plane, and used it to make a broader point.
“Does this give you confidence in our intelligence agencies?” he asked his listeners. “The NSA knows if you’ve gone to the orthodontist and whether you dropped your children off at the soccer field. They can follow you in real time, but they don’t know where the airplane is?” (Free audio).
He also criticized ultra Orthodox Jews in New York City for protesting Israel’s decision to start drafting members of the sect into the armed forces. In Israel, the ultra Orthodox have historically been exempt from military service so that they could devote their lives to Torah study.
“I appreciate that the ultra Orthodox study and pray and do good deeds,” Savage allowed. “But how can they expect someone else to fight and die for them?
“Their way of life isn’t even in the Bible. It started in Eastern Europe 250 years ago. We’re living in 2014 not 1815. This topic is important because just as the ultra Orthodox in Israel consider themselves above serving in the military, the secular progressives in America who see their love of Gaia as a sort of religion think they should get out of serving as well” (Free audio).
The second book in Limbaugh’s series of children’s books came out this week and quickly flew to the top of the Amazon bestseller list.
He told listeners that “you will not see the word ‘conservative’ or ‘liberal’ or ‘politics’” in his “Rush Revere” books. “It’s much more subtle than that. Simply teach the truth. Simply inform accurately. Simply use common sense. One of the things I try to do in these books is constantly harp on freedom as something as important in life as anything is, material or otherwise.”
Also this week, Limbaugh noted, “We are living in the historic era with the first African-American president has everybody paralyzed and everybody scared. … I think the paralysis will end. Even if we get the first female president, it’s still not gonna be near the paralysis that exists today. That paralysis was planned for and is being used to its maximum benefit by the Democrats and the American left” (Free audio).
Klein looks into the theory that the missing Malaysian Airlines flight was shot down by a missile. Closer to home, he revisits the scandal surrounding the famous horse-drawn carriages in New York City, which the new mayor wants to phase out.
Klein also looks into the Pentagon’s decision to hire Muslim Brotherhood chaplains and the many suspicious Muslim groups operating this program behind the scenes. Did you know that Obama has appointed an “anti-Semitism czar”? Aaron Klein has the scoop (Free audio).
He usually targets politicians, but this week Mark Levin reserved his venom for sportscaster Bob Costas.
Calling Costas “a damn fool,” Levin condemned the announcer for questioning the Second Amendment on the air (Free audio).
After Florida Republican David Jolly won a special election, Levin pointed out that the same party leaders now celebrating Jolly’s victory were highly critical of him in Politico when they thought he was going to lose.
“The point is this,” Levin said, “If we don’t get new Republican leadership in Washington, clean out these consultants, clean out these Republican institutions, and put in some fresh people, new people, solid people who are really concerned about the country, really concerned about winning, this is the sort of sleazy crap that’s going to go on.”
Ingraham and Rep. Renee Ellmers got into a no-holds barred argument about immigration reform, after the Republican lawmaker explained that the farmers in her North Carolina district rely on immigrant labor to stay in business.
“If you’re a farmer and can’t make a living by following the laws right now, then you shouldn’t be in business,” Ingraham shot back. “If you can’t operate in a free market economy and respect sovereignty, the rule of law, and American immigration law, you’re right, Congresswoman, I don’t think you should be in business today.”
Ingraham’s other guests this week included Mickey Kaus, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Texas Gov. Rick Perry (Free audio).
Beck is known for singling out famous historical figures like Woodrow Wilson for criticism and demonstrating how their policies continue to undermine America. His latest target is legendary inventory Thomas Edison.
Beck explained that he turned on Edison after he heard about his ruthless campaigns to destroy his rivals like George Westinghouse and Nikola Tesla.
