This week, Dr. Savage celebrated his 20th year in radio by recalling how he got his start in the industry, while promoting his books about nutrition and natural medicine:
“When I did a book tour in Seattle back in the 1970s,” he recalled, “during a commercial break the host who was interviewing me said, ‘Michael, you have a wonderful voice and a great presence. You ought to consider a career in radio.’
“At the time,” Savage continued, “it was as if he’d told me I should consider a career in Major League Baseball. I didn’t know the first thing about it” (Free audio).
Savage blasted President Obama for “restarting the Cold War,” calling him a “silly clown” and adding that, “There would be an overthrow of the government through legal means if we lived in a sane democracy” (Free audio).
When one of Limbaugh’s loudest critics was arrested on serious criminal charges, the radio host didn’t try to hide his delight.
California State Sen. Leland Yee was one of more than a dozen Democrats caught up in an FBI sweep of corrupt elected officials. Back in 2011, Yee had unsuccessfully tried to organize a boycott of Limbaugh’s show after he mocked the president of China.
Limbaugh criticized the media for underreporting the party affiliation of the accused. Earlier in the week, he also mocked journalists’ lazy and ignorant reporting on a story concerning Matt Drudge.
The radio host called the “mainstream media” “pig ignorant” after they criticized Drudge for paying his taxes (and Obamacare penalty) “early,” even though – as a self-employed entrepreneur – that is precisely what the Internet news giant is legally required to do.
“This is total, willful ignorance, on the part of people who are supposedly, as members of the media, experts on taxes and economics,” said Limbaugh. “They are at least supposed to know more than you do so that they can tell you what all this means when it’s discussed in the news!”
The latest version of John Kerry’s Middle East “peace plan” has been leaked, and only Klein has the exclusive details.
He asks why Obama is cutting back on military spending at precisely the same time Putin is trying to rebuild the old Soviet Union. Klein also reveals that the rebels the U.S. supported are now persecuting Christians and introduced listeners to the “illegal alien activist” who just met with the DHS secretary (Free audio).
On Monday, Levin slammed Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., for squeezing provisions to shore up the International Monetary Fund into a Ukraine aid bill.
McConnell is “not a conservative,” Levin declared. “He’s an operator.”
The next day, McConnell flip-flopped, saying, the “controversial IMF provision must be removed.”
Levin remained unimpressed, tweeting, “He votes for it, urges his members to vote for it, now complains about it.”
Many people have read former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm’s famous speech called “I Have a Plan to Destroy America,” in which he outlined the precise methods used by liberals to undermine everything that has made the nation great.
The actual audio of the address, however, has never been available, until Mark Levin aired it on his show this week (Free audio).
As a guest on “Fox News Sunday,” Ingraham denounced the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as “military adventurism” and warned against U.S. military involvement in the Ukraine crisis: “[W]e have a country right now where people look around and say, ‘Wait a second, why do we only seem to care about borders and sovereignty when they’re other countries’ borders and sovereignty?'”
“I was a big supporter of the war in Iraq,” she continued. “I understand there are a lot of complexities there. But the American people are saying, ‘Where is the bang for the buck?'” (Free audio)
On her own program, Ingraham’s guests included Victor Davis Hanson and the inventor of an app designed to help parents protect their children from predators (Free audio).
“This is so horrific, it doesn’t even sound real,” Beck said on his show this week, referring to the shocking news that the bodies of thousands of aborted babies have been burned to heat British hospitals.
Beck was struck by the story’s biblical echoes, quoting Jeremiah 19:5-8: “They have built the high places of Baal to burn their children in the fire as offerings. … I will make them fall by the sword before their enemies, at the hands of those who want to kill them, and I will give their carcasses as food to the birds and the wild animals. I will devastate this city and make it an object of horror and scorn” (Free audio).
Speaking of the Old Testament, Beck attended a preview screening of the film “Noah,” and he wasn’t impressed.
“If you are looking for a biblical movie,” Beck said to his listeners, “this is definitely not it. … It’s not the story of Noah that I was hoping for. If you are going for that, you will be horribly disappointed” (Free audio).
