“Obama is up in Alaska, renaming mountains for political purposes,” Savage said to his audience this week, referring to the president’s decision to rename Mt. McKinley.
“Obama’s also putting out more fraudulent information about global warming, in order to push that lie,” Savage continued. “At the same, CNN says Obama wants new Coast Guard ice breakers in the Arctic. … I had to wonder: If all the ice is melting on account of global warming, why does Dear Leader need new ice breakers? (Free audio)”
Savage also called Obama “the most racist president you can imagine,” accusing him of fueling the upsurge in racially-motivated police shootings: “Obama clearly gave the signal that it’s open season on police. Over the weekend, a Houston deputy was pumping gas and a cowardly black man – a filthy lowlife slimy coward – came up behind him and shot him in the back of the head. Not one word from the White House. … How long do you think this will go on until there is a civil war in the United States of America? (Free audio)”
The backlash against Donald Trump’s GOP candidacy isn’t coming just from the left; many conservative pundits are outspoken critics of the billionaire mogul and his supporters.
This week, Limbaugh reacted to an attack on Trump by Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal, saying that Stephens and his ilk don’t really understand what’s driving Trump supporters: “At the top of the list of reasons why Trump has a large and growing following, it’s all about immigration and how the establishment inside the Beltway is now openly, not even disguising, what they’ve thought about average, ordinary Americans for years now (Free audio).”
While acknowledging that “it’s probably a hoax,” Limbaugh picked up on one news story and mused about doing his part to bring Hillary Clinton to justice: “There’s a hacker who claims that he has hacked Hillary’s server and has the 33,000 e-mails that she thought she deleted. The hacker is saying that Hillary and her team forgot to delete the sent mail folder, and that’s what he was able to hack. And he’s put ’em up for sale for half a million dollars. I thought about buying them and donating them to the FBI (Free audio).”
This week, Klein debated anti-Jewish conspiracy theorist David Duke for one full hour on Duke’s far-fetched claims that “Zionist Jews” control the media, Hollywood, the federal reserve, the White House and most foreign governments.
Duke also played down reports that he’d endorsed Trump’s campaign for president: “I wasn’t formally or informally endorsing Donald Trump for president. But I said I like the fact that he is bringing forth the immigration issue. And the immigration issue, and he’s brought this up as well as Ann Coulter, the immigration issue goes way beyond just the illegal immigrants in this country.”
Later, Klein explained how Israel stopped illegal infiltrators and what America can learn from the Jewish state’s response.

A Kentucky clerk named Kim Davis was jailed refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couple. Mark Levin responded to conservatives who are applauding her arrest.
“It is the court that is nullifying the rule of law, not this lady,” Levin said. “This lady is only in this position because of a lawless decision by the Supreme Court, decisions that should have been left to the states (Free audio).”
Levin announced that he’ll be one of the speakers at the “Stop The Iran Deal Rally” in Washington D.C. on Sept. 9.
“We need to do this,” he said, noting that Donald Trump was also scheduled to attend. “We need to be seen en masse. So I’ll be there and I hope you join the rest of us (Free audio).”
Ingraham battled with Gov. John Kasich on the meaning of the 14th amendment and its so-called “birthright citizenship” provisions. He seemed confused about what the law actually said:
KASICH: “Well, I think if you’re born here, my understanding is, I thought it was in the 14th amendment that says equal protection, if you’re born here, you become a citizen. Am I wrong on that? If I’m wrong on it, I’ll be glad to –”
INGRAHAM: “There’s a Citizenship Clause in the 14th amendment, written by Howard Jacob, who himself said it was never meant to apply to foreigners, neither parent being an American citizen (Free audio).”
Ingraham’s other guests this week included Gov. Scott Walker (“We don’t need a name from the past like Jeb Bush, we need someone like me that has a better chance to beat Hillary Clinton”); Rand Paul (“I think Dick Cheney has been wrong on foreign policy for the past 30 years, we should not be sending Americans overseas”); and Carly Fiorina (“The people who keeping saying I’m in this for VP, that’s sexist. I’m as qualified as anyone running for president”) (Free audio).
Beck’s “Restoring Unity” event in Birmingham, Alabama attracted an estimated 20,000 people over the weekend, along with media attention, much of it negative.
The New Yorker spent “A Day Inside Glenn Beck’s America” and dismissed it as “a lengthy series of jumbled speeches.”
A Black Lives Matter activist writing at AL.com called Beck’s rally “problematic” and added: “It appears that Beck and local co-organizers did little to reach out to the people of the community before executing march plans guerilla style. Many residents were clueless as to what was even going on. … Why the sneakiness?”
Back on the air, Beck declared that America is poised at the threshold of “a third great awakening,” and complained about the media’s coverage of “Restoring Unity”: “When you have, in the middle of this controversial time, where we are told we are at such odds with each other, here is an opportunity to celebrate two different groups coming together and everyone having a great time, no arrests, no throwing things at cops, no anger, it was just people coming together in a wonderful way for an entire weekend of service. Do you get that from Reuters? Do you get that from the national media at all? No, you get 325 people running around threatening ‘pigs’ (Free video).”
