Ted Cruz Attacks Crazy John McCain Supporting War Hawk on Arab Spring

Ted Cruz the CanadianPresidential candidate Ted Cruz on Friday got into a heated exchange with a voter who accused him of supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad.

“I came from New Jersey to ask this question because it’s so important to me,” said John Davenport, a Fordham University professor who directs the school’s peace and justice studies, during a town hall at Lancaster Elementary featuring the GOP presidential candidate.

“Supporting Assad is a mistake. He’s the reason that ISIS exists in the beginning. What are you doing?” asked Davenport, who based his allegation that Cruz supports Assad on the failure of Congress to remove the Syrian leader from power.

“Now, your question begins with a false premise,” Cruz said to Davenport. “You asked me if I’m supporting Assad. I’m not supporting Assad.”

Cruz said President Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton led the 2011 NATO effort to topple Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, claiming the intervention created a vacuum that allowed the rise of radical Islamic terrorists. He suggested the same thing would happen in Syria if the U.S. ousted Assad.

Davenport passionately explained that Assad had killed 200,000 innocent Syrians. We have heard these claims before. Saddam throwing babies out of incubators, Putin “kills” journalists, Iran is going to nuke Isreal so we have to attack them, Russia invaded Crimea, Weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

University professor John Davenport is not going to sign up and be on the front lines of any wars. He wants your children to fight a foreign war based on his emotions. He has created a narrative in his mind and feels bad, as we all do, about the situation in Syria. Making up figures like “Assad has killed 200,000 innocent Syrians” to add fuel to an already horrifying conflict is evil. The American people are sick of war. 

“We will not have a debate, Sir. I will answer it, but I will not have a yelling match,” Cruz said forcefully, as Davenport again tried to get a word in. “Alright, this answer is over,” Cruz shouted as the crowd erupted in applause.

Donald Trump Campaigns with Veterans in Iowa

“I want to say how grateful I am to Donald Trump for inviting us here, because the easy thing for him to do is to simply ignore that anybody else cares about veterans, and he’s not that kind of person,” Huckabee said, thanking the frontrunner for the invitation.

Trump introduces John Wayne Walding whose story is told in the book No Way Out: A Story of Valor in the Mountains of Afghanistan. Walding, who lost his leg in the Battle of Shok Valley, shares several stories of Trump’s kindness toward himself and other veterans.

Trump went on to say that he does not feel good about turning down money. He explained how he’s turned down millions in campaign donations. “Because my whole life I’ve been greedy, greedy, greedy. I grabbed all the money I could get, I’m so greedy. But now I wanna be greedy for the United States and grab all that money, I’m gonna be greedy for the United States.”

Trump ended the night by announcing that his organization raised over 6 Million dollars for various veteran organizations.

Howard Stern is a Winner!

Howard Stern Winner 2016Presidential candidate Donald Trump responded to The New York Times who implied that he does not have great relationship with radio host, Howard Stern.

In a Sunday opinion column, The Times’ Frank Bruni wrote about how much Trump’s brand is tied to the concept of winning.

Bruni also reflected on what it would do to Trump if he lost Iowa, the first state to weigh in on the Republican presidential primary.

The columnist noted that Trump frequently calls people “losers.” Bruni cited singer Cher, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, commentator Ana Navarro, HBO host Bill Maher, GOP consultant Karl Rove, and Howard Stern.

But Trump insisted he would never call Stern a loser. The Republican front-runner lashed out at Bruni for the “disgusting,” supposedly fabricated notion that he would insult Stern, whom he called his friend. Trump also criticized the “failing” Times for allowing the claim to be printed.

Trump responded on twitter with:

Dope Frank Bruni said I called many people, including Karl Rove, losers-true! I never called my friend Howard Stern a loser- he’s a winner!

Really disgusting that the failing New York Times allows dishonest writers to totally fabricate stories.

t turned out that The Times was actually was referencing Howard K. Stern, the former boyfriend of the late model Anna Nicole Smith, without making it clear which Stern had been insulted.

The writer of the article, Frank Bruni, apologized to both Donald Trump and Howard Stern for the confusion.

Sarah Palin Endorses Donald Trump

Sarah Palin Endorses Donald TrumpSarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and 2008 vice-presidential nominee who became a Tea Party sensation and a favorite of grass-roots conservatives, endorsed Donald Trump 2 weeks before the Iowa caucuses.

“Are you ready to make America great again?” Ms. Palin said with Mr. Trump by her side at a rally at Iowa State University. “Are you ready to stump for Trump? I’m here to support the next president of the United States – Donald Trump.”

Her support is the highest-profile backing for a Republican contender so far.

“I am greatly honored to receive Sarah’s endorsement,” Donald Trump said in a statement trumpeting Mrs. Palin’s decision. “She is a friend and a high-quality person whom I have great respect for. I am proud to have her support.”

Sarah Palin endorsed Ted Cruz during his Senate race in Texas.

“I love Sarah Palin. Without her support, I wouldn’t be in the Senate. Regardless of what she does in 2016, I will always be a big fan,” Cruz said.

“Whats extortionary about Ted Cruz is that he just fulfilling campaign promises.” – Sarah Palin

Artie Lange: “Howard Stern Hates My Guts”

Artie Lange was interviewed by Maxim magazine last week. He spoke about his relationship with Howard Stern after leaving the show.

What is your current relationship with Howard Stern like?

Artie Lange 2016After I left the show, I went into intensive care for four days. Then I went to a psych ward for three days, and then I got transferred to a rehab. About two weeks after it happened, I got a call at rehab from Howard, and it was very nice. I called him when I got out of rehab, and he called me back. That was in February of 2010. He told me to call back and let him know how I was doing. I took it to mean that maybe they wanted me back as a guest or just to give an update, and I thought I owed them that. I called them about a month later in March 2010. Then I called again and left a message and apologized and said, “This is the last time I’m calling, I won’t bug you any more. Never heard back.

A year and a half later, my book was coming out. I didn’t wanna call them, but I was being respectful of a company, Random House, paying me big cash to write a book. I said, “I’ll at least try.” Just to be a guest on the show and talk about the book, which every fan on Twitter was begging to happen. [Stern show producer]Gary [Dell’Abate] calls back a day later and he says, very coldly, “It’s just not going to happen.” And I regret that I gave him the chance to say that, because I didn’t even want to make the call. I said, “OK” and hung up.

Unbeknownst to me, the book company tries to buy ad time on the show, and this is when I really knew I was persona non grata. Ad sales never turns down anything. It could be dick cream. Random House was gonna pay top dollar, and they turned them down. That’s the first time I ever heard them doing that. Spincterine, where you put a mint in your ass to make it smell better? They took an ad for it. My book, which was No. 1 on the best seller list, they wouldn’t do it because Howard put the kibosh on it personally. I said, “The guy hates my guts.” I wrote him off the way he did me. I really wanted to have that long conversation in person where I said, “I’m sorry for becoming a heroin addict. We were doing great for 7 years. I apologize for that last year when I was a junkie.

The fact that someone I had that relationship with won’t see me in person for ten minutes, it’s astonishingly immature and crazy. It’s surreal to me. – Arite Lange

Paying Tribute to Riley Martin

One of the Howard Stern Show’s great personalities, Riley Martin born May 9, 1946, died on December 22, 2015, at the age of 69. In celebration of his life, Howard Stern and the rest of the crew paid tribute to Martin by reliving old moments and celebrating his life.

The Riley Martin Show was broadcast on Howard 101 from 2006 until 2015. The subject matter for Martin’s show often revolved around his alleged personal experiences with extraterrestrial beings.

Riley describes seven types of extraterrestrial’s who reside in a mothership near Saturn:

The Biaviians, the aliens who have had the most interaction with Martin
The Targzissians, who are malevolent reptilians
The Stagyians, who have a bony, leathery appearance
The Dorians, who resemble blonde-haired, blue-eyed humans
The Insectillians (aka the Skreed), who are “smart bugs” five feet tall
The Nyptonians, who are “water people” with “underwater bases” on Earth
There is also a seventh race of aliens whose name Martin can’t pronounce

Howard talked about how much Martin hated his pay while working for him and said that Martin thought he could be earning much more because of his popularity.

Stern played a bunch of clips throughout his segment remembering Martin especially the fact that he always complained about his salary. The Stern Show also dug up some of their favorite prank calls that were made to Martin and the hilarious manner in which they were handled.

Howard said that Martin was one-of-a-kind and that there would be no one else like him.
He gave his final goodbye and the rest of the crew including some of the Wack Pack who paid tribute to their fallen friend.

Rest in peace Space Cowboy.

Is Ted Cruz Eligible To Be President?

Ted Cruz Cartoon WCQJDuring an interview with the Washington Post, Donald Trump said primary voters should consider where Ted Cruz was born before voting for him. Ted Cruz does not hide the fact that he was born in Alberta, Canada.

“Republicans are going to have to ask themselves the question: ‘Do we want a candidate who could be tied up in court for two years?’ That’d be a big problem.” Trump, discussing Ted Cruz eligibility to run for POTUS.

As you may know, under the Natural-born-citizen clause, The United States Constitution requires the president be a natural-born citizen.

“It’d be a very precarious one for Republicans because he’d be running and the courts may take a long time to make a decision. You don’t want to be running and have that kind of thing over your head.” Trump added.

Ted Cruz was automatically granted American citizenship at birth since his mother is an American citizen. In an interview with CNN, Cruz responded to Donald Trumps question about his eligibility.

“The legal issue is straightforward, the son of a US citizen born abroad is a natural-born citizen.” Cruz answered.

Some background information on the topic. The US Constitution does not define what natural-born citizen precisely means. People have their own opinions but constitutional and legal scholars say the term comprises:

All people born subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, including, generally, those born in the United States, those born to U.S. citizen parents in foreign countries, and those born in other situations meeting the legal requirements for U.S. citizenship “at birth”.

Baba Booey shouted at Donald Trump Rally

Donald Trump WCQJDonald Tump was interviewed on the Stern Show in August 2015 where Howard said “you could actually be president, this is looking like a reality.”

By now, the start of 2016, Donald Trump was supposed to have been a throwaway candidate alongside the likes of Howard Dean and Jesse Ventura.

Donald Trump is not going away anytime soon. The American people feel diminished in many ways. Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again,” is resonating with voters. Many feel that the American Dream has faded away and is out of reach for the Average Joe.

People want real tough talk, not canned soundbites from the Grand Old Party. In many ways, Trump has hijacked the GOP, but this is a welcomed change of course.

The politics of a country need to change with its society. The fabric of America has changed considerably since the 1960’s. Voters want authenticity when choosing a leader. They want someone who is going to walk the walk and to get things done and as of January 2016, Donald Trump seems to be the one.

Howard Stern re-signs with SiriusXM for another 5 years!

Howard Stern Forbes Money ListHoward Stern announced this week that he and Sirius XM (SIRI) have finally reached an agreement. Sirius XM will retain Stern’s services for five more years, and has locked in the exclusive use of Howard’s extensive library of content for 12 more years.

This was an important deal for Sirius XM. Last year, a survey by Macquarie found that 12% of Sirius XM subscribers tuned into the show, and that 5% would consider leaving if Stern moved on.

The company has about 29 million subscribers, who pay approximately $15 per month on average. A loss of 5% of its listener base — about 1.45 million listeners — would cost SIRI in excess of $250 million per year in subscription fees alone.

Although no official figures have been released, it’s widely estimated that Sirius XM has agreed to pay Stern $90 million per year to retain his services. When compared to potential cost of losing Stern’s services, it was the right move.

The 12-year content agreement might be the most important piece of this deal. Last month, Mel Karmazin, the former CEO of Sirius XM, was interviewed on CNBC. At that time, Karmazin stated that Stern had full ownership of 30 years’ worth of content. He suggested that Stern could simply sell or syndicate the content and retire. The threat of losing both Stern and his library was too great a risk.

That is no longer a possibility. Stern and his crew can leave Sirius XM when his new five-year deal expires, but they can’t take the old content with them. This will make Stern less attractive to potential suitors. When the content deal finally expires in late 2027, Stern will be on the cusp of turning 74 years old. Simply put, the new Sirius XM deal locks Stern in for the remainder of his career.

What happens next? When the five-year deal for new content expires in late 2020, both Howard and his co-host, Robin Quivers, will be pushing 70. At that point, I would expect to the Stern show as we know it to end.

How many times are you going to call in about Artie Lange?

artie wcqj howard beef“Artie has a podcast and Stuttering John was on and they were negative about me,” Stern said. “I can’t say I was thrilled about it. I was hurt, but what am I going to do?”

When Hanzi explained to the King of All Media that Lange and Melendez “didn’t badmouth” him, but made references to his overhauled, PC image.

“I know, I hear that all the time that I’m PC, that I’m politically correct,” Stern said. “All right I’m politically correct, what can I tell you?”

“People go nuts because I’m on America’s Got Talent and that’s my sellout moment,” he said. “Or if I have a reasonable conversation with the guest, I’m a sellout. Or if I don’t do some bit I did 20 years ago, I’m a sellout.”

Later Howard went on to address the Artie situation once more. “Artie is a terrific guy, we love Artie, Artie’s a talent but what you’re attempting to do is rile me up. I know what you’re doing, I told you. Artie is terrific, We love Artie, what do you want me to do? You want me to jump up or down or something, what?”

“How many times are you going to call in or tweet me and ask me about Artie?”
