Looking back on the nightly violence on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, Dr. Savage made a trenchant observation.
For years now, he reminded his listeners, the Department of Homeland Security has “been militarizing police forces, getting ready for an insurrection within America. Civil disobedience occurred in Missouri this week, but it was black civil disobedience, so there was no DHS presence.
“It’s very important to understand this. This entire federal government is geared up to fight a war against white people,” Savage proclaimed (Free audio).
Can America survive another Civil War?
According to Michael Savage, the nation is in real trouble and the seeds of a second conflagration have been sown. In his forthcoming book, “Stop the Coming Civil War,” Savage issues a citizen’s call to action – not in the streets but in the voting booth. He urges voters to prevent another civil war by using the power of the ballot box to return America to its founding principles.
“Stop the Coming Civil War” can be pre-ordered now, at a savings of 23 percent off the cover price.
Not surprisingly, Rush Limbaugh has a unique take on the “Ice Bucket Challenge” that’s swept the nation.
After being challenged to take part in this viral video fundraiser for ALS, Limbaugh pointed out, “There’s something about this that doesn’t make sense. I think everybody’s doing this wrong. The ice bucket challenge consists of two things: You either donate to ALS or dump a bucket of ice on your head, right? So how are they raising money if everybody’s just dumping ice on their heads? It seems to me the idea is to send ALS some money. They don’t show video of ’em doing both” (Free audio).
Limbaugh pointed out the White House sent more official delegates to the funeral of slain “gentle giant” Michael Brown than they have to the funerals of more distinguished individuals: “The White House sent more people to the funeral of the ‘gentle giant’ than they sent to the Arlington National Cemetery funeral of a two-star general killed in Afghanistan recently named Gen. Harold J. Greene. They didn’t send anybody. Not one representative from the regime traveled across town in Washington to attend his funeral at Arlington. The regime sent more people to the funeral of the ‘gentle giant’ than they sent to the funeral of Margaret Thatcher” (Free audio).
Levin says Obama is to blame for the growth of ISIS, calling this development, “one of the worst military national security screw-ups in modern American history.”
“And he’s still screwing up,” Levin continued. “Has he rallied the American people? Has he spoken to Congress? Has he asked for a declaration of war or at least a joint resolution to fund an aggressive offensive attack against these cockroaches? No, he hasn’t. We’re dealing with a very peculiar, petulant man who operates with a few advisers around him” (Free audio).
Levin also criticized Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., for touting amnesty for illegal aliens: “Absolute evisceration of our immigration laws, the rule of law, period, our sovereignty, our border, because race means everything to Luis Gutierrez. He doesn’t even talk about these people as people. ‘We’ll get 5 million if we can!’ This is what they do to individuals. Put them in groups. … And I read to you the other day, Latinos in this country do not support illegal immigration, by a large number” (Free audio).
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal joined Ingraham to talk about his lawsuit against the federal government, as he tries to wrest back control over education from the federal government to the states.
“Common Core should not be a way for the federal government to tell our local classrooms what they should be teaching,” he said (Free audio).
Bill Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, told Ingraham he favored major military intervention to try to destroy ISIS forces.
“We’re underestimating the ability of what the use of force – even from the air, even with some people on the ground to help out – how much that could do,” he insisted, adding, “What’s the harm of bombing [ISIS] at least for a few weeks and seeing what happens? I don’t think there’s much in the way of unanticipated side effects that could be bad there. We could [eliminate] a lot of very bad guys” (Free audio).
Is Glenn Beck a hero to conservatives, or a traitor? That depends on which conservative media outlet you ask.
Over at PJMedia, Ed Driscoll cheered Beck’s possible takeover of HLN, the network where he was once treated shabbily, despite bringing in good ratings and revenue: “Unlike other cable TV hosts who stayed in that medium long after their sell-through date had expired, Beck left Fox News to start his Blaze Internet TV channel and website. The risk paid off in spades – in 2011, Forbes described Beck as a ‘$100 million man.’ So I’m sure Beck acquiring a stake in Headline News, both to compete with Fox, and for a little payback for crapping on him during his salad days.”
At rival site Breitbart.com, however, reporter Tony Lee accused Beck of “ripping” on fellow conservatives while trying, and failing, to make that deal with CNN.
Lee quoted CNN’s Brian Stelter, who said the talks “fizzled,” but that while they were going on, Beck attempted to moderate his image as a firebrand by giving interviews in which he insisted he’d “mellowed.”
