The Morning Report — 2/20/24

rushtohush.jpg

Good morning, kids. Yesterday, it went almost without notice that the man behind the Golden EIB microphone, Rush Hudson Limbaugh has been gone from the scene for three years. He was the manifestation of that classic Apple "1984" commercial from 40 years ago of the person hurling a hammer into the video monitor of the dictator speaking to the mind-numbed masses – and nothing was ever the same again.

The fatal delusion of the left is their belief that Rush Limbaugh was some sort of shock-jock entertainer who told us what to think and we parroted him. Nothing could have been further from the truth. Rush Limbaugh merely(!!) articulated what all of us individually were thinking. At a bare minimum, if we weren't consciously aware of the details of how things were going on behind the scenes, he confirmed the feeling that many of us thought that something indeed was rotten in the state of Denmark. That America as it was founded, as we had been taught it functioned or was supposed to function, the two-party system and all of that was a lie.

Thankfully, because President Reagan was able to do away with the muzzling effects of the equal time regulations of the FCC unleashed the first massive challenge to the media-industrial-propaganda complex with talk radio. And the rest as they say is indeed history.

If the media landscape had not changed with talk radio and then the internet, the narrative, or as Rush described it "the daily soap opera" would go on as it had as before. The only reason we are "polarized" as the Left claims (and we are) is because we have access to actual facts and information that challenges the narrative of the junta in power. As more and more of the grift and sham has been exposed, the more desperate and overt the shots across the bow, and in many instances, right in our faces have become.

Any sense of proportion or even the minimum recognition of ethics or a line that people dare not cross to maintain and increase their vise-grip on power is long gone.

AM radio still remains the sounding board, megaphone and rallying point for a vast audience that to say the least, are not on board with the Democrat Left. The fact that AM radios were discontinued or are on track to be discontinued in new model automobiles can only be for one reason.

When Soros first came after Radio Mambi, some Republican legislators, including Sen. Tom Cotton, Sen. Marco Rubio, and others turned to the FCC, warning that, “far-left ideologues are attempting to consolidate and expand their control over the media, so they can flood the airwaves with propaganda” and asking the federal agency to step in and take action.

That did not happen and nor should anyone expect the FCC to stop Soros now, but the company filed for Chapter 11 in the Southern District of Texas. And while the NRA and Trump already discovered the dangerous powers that state prosecutors have over organizations doing business or even registered in a blue state, there’s no reason the reverse can’t be true.

Audacy’s rapid bankruptcy deal that will make Soros into the company’s biggest shareholder can be examined by state officials including regulators and prosecutors like Attorney General Ken Paxton. Audacy’s reach includes Texas where it has at least one conservative talk radio station, KJCE which, along with local talent, broadcasts Sean Hannity, Dana Loesch and Frontlines of Freedom, and local officials can determine whether the bankruptcy deal and the subsequent Soros takeover will impact the Texas market and viewpoint diversity.

Instead of a rapid bankruptcy followed by a fast takeover, Texas state officials have a duty to thoroughly scrutinize the parameters of the agreement, its local impact and any issues that may arise from the new role of the Soros organization and what its management role may be.

Part of the agreement involves the appointment of a new board of directors. At Radio Mambi, the Soros people brought in Democratic Party operatives in a leadership role. Does Soros have similar plans for Audacy? Who will be on the proposed board of directors? Did George Soros personally play any role in the move by the Soros Management Fund?

The company has signaled that major cuts will be as part of its reorganization. Will those cuts be politically neutral or will they single out conservative employees and the conservative side of the business? Will this reorganization which is officially meant to deal with the debt load really be used as cover for a purge of the political opposition by a major funder of the ruling party.

These are worrisome questions.

When NPR radio stations began turning into conservative talk radio, the media and Democrat legislators quickly mobilized to fight against the transformation. The question is whether Republicans intend to allow George Soros to crush conservative radio without a fight.

One of the shocking truths that Rush Limbaugh, PBUH, made us realize is that Republican does not ipso facto mean conservative. Remember, the GOPe hates us, Trump and the MAGA movement every bit as the Left because in point of fact they are part and parcel of the hypocrisy we were awakened to starting all those years ago.
