Some documents found in Osama bin Laden’s compound were declassified this week, and Rush Limbaugh wasn’t surprised by what was revealed.
“There are books by well known leftists, like Noam Chomsky,” he told his audience. “Bin Laden was reading books with titles like ‘Wage Inequality in France.’ He was a leftist.”
Limbaugh predicted that such embarrassing revelations wouldn’t get much media coverage, then asked, “Can you imagine if they had found a copy of one of my books in there? That would be the headline. But since there are books by a bunch of leftists in there, ho-hum, no big deal (Free audio).”
The conventional wisdom has it that the most successful Democratic candidates are those who’ve positioned themselves firmly on the left. Not surprisingly, Limbaugh doesn’t agree with that theory, and said Hillary Clinton would be foolish to adopt it.
“I think it means she is setting herself up for what could be a landslide loss because I am here to tell you this country has not accepted the welfare state,” he said. “It’s the other way around. I’m telling you the people of this country and the evidence is in by phone calls, emails and texts to Congress, polling data, however you want to look at it – this country has not decided open-borders immigration is the future. … And to the extent that Hillary or any other Democrat thinks they are – I think they’re setting themselves up for a major, major disappointment. That again depends on what the Republicans do with it (Free audio).”
Millions of people listen to Michael Savage every day. Now he wants to hear from them.
“On ‘The Savage Nation’ we talk a lot about the problems facing America,” he wrote on his website. “I’ve told you some of my solutions. Now, I’d like to hear yours. Do you want to see your name in print in a new Michael Savage book? Then give me your answers to some of the tough questions we ask every day on the Savage Nation.” Learn more at Savage’s website.
On the air, the Mad Men finale led Savage to reflect on the legacy of the 1960s: “We were misled by the devils who ran this movement. Timothy Leary pushed drugs and poisoned the minds of millions. The degenerate Allen Ginsberg pushed a false perverted sense of sexuality down everyone’s throats, and poisoned millions of souls. The women’s movement pushed their big lie on everyone. As a result, the country fragmented right down the middle, and as a result we have Barack Obama (Free audio).”
All the focus has been on TV talking head George Stephanopoulos’ undisclosed financial ties to the Clintons, but only Aaron Klein revealed another conflict of interest – with Obama. They served on a small Harvard board together, for one thing. You’ll only hear this on Klein’s program.
A Palestinian state would go against the interests of Christians, so Klein wondered why the Vatican suddenly seems to favor such a development.
Klein’s expertise on Benghazi came in handy after an ex-CIA deputy director falsely insisted there was “little or no advance planning” of the massacre.
Listen to Aaron Klein’s show every week on radio (AM 970 The Answer in NY; NewsTalk 990 AM in Philly) or online.
Levin gave his listeners a valuable history lesson about how America’s inner-city ghettos were created. According to one historian, he explained, these areas were the intentional creation of Democratic policies – the so-called “progressive” policies of the New Deal. It’s an eye opening story (Free audio).
A reporter tried and failed to create a “gotcha” moment during an interview with Ted Cruz. The journalist asked Cruz about gay marriage, and Levin congratulated the candidate for “hitting it out of the park” with a superb response (Free audio).
Governor Bobby Jindal came on Ingraham’s show this week to explain why he campaigns for religious freedom instead of gay marriage.
Her other guests included Ron Fournier, who said, “Hillary is doing more than just not telling the truth, she is running a terrible campaign bringing out the worst in her.”
George Will told her that “we made a horrible mistake” by going to war in Iraq, while Bob Baer said that “ISIS is something like I’ve never seen in the Middle East” and America has to do more to wipe it out (Free audio).
This week, Beck brought two experts on the show – one in favor of legalizing marijuana and one against – to debate the issue. The host said he’d been reevaluating his opinion on the matter for some time.
Beck, a recovering alcoholic and marijuana smoker, noted: “I believe I would have been a better broadcaster today had I not done that. I’m not a fan of drugs. I don’t do drugs. I don’t recommend anyone does drugs. But I think we are going down this rabbit hole of a war on drugs that isn’t working. It’s empowering the cartels across the border, and it’s causing a lot of problems here inside of our border, much like we had during the prohibition period of the progressive era (Free audio).”
