America's Anchorman, Rush Limbaugh, was away today, so, as EIB's very own Anchor Baby, I was honored to step in. You can find a few moments from the show right here:
You should always listen very carefully when the media are telling you what they don't want you to talk about, and that's what's been going on since Trump brought up birthright citizenship.
We discussed Trump, immigration, and their combined effect on the Republican Party. A certain must-read new book also came up:
Whether you're prostrating yourselves in front of kings or whether you're prostrating yourselves in front of judges, sometimes you need to stand up. My book about this big free speech case I'm in, "A Disgrace to the Profession", is about punching back twice as hard.
I also put in a word for the inspirational story of the day, the action taken by three young Americans plus one middle-aged Brit in taking down an Allahu Ankar baby on the Paris/Amsterdam train:
These three young unarmed Americans saw this guy with an AK on the French train and threw themselves at him, tackled him, and got the weapons away. It is something to be proud of that Americans, unlike many other people, still retain that survival instinct. The instinct of Todd Beamer and Flight 93 and 'Let's Roll.'
And Dr Helen Smith picks up at one of the minor news items I brought up today - the response of trigger queen John R Broderick, president of Old Dominion University, to the posting of three poster-sized micro-aggressions outside a male dorm house on campus:
Rowdy and Fun. Hope your baby girl is ready for a good time.
Freshman daughter drop off.
Go ahead and drop off mom too.
Dr Helen discourses on that last one, which happened to be my favorite, too.
I'll be back behind the Golden EIB Microphone tomorrow, Tuesday, at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific for another three hours of substitute-host-level Excellence in Broadcasting. Hope you'll join me.
~As for that new book of mine I mentioned above, it's available from Amazon in print and Kindle - and I'm thrilled to see it's currently Number One on the Climatology hit parade. "A Disgrace to the Profession"'s sister book Climate Change: The Facts is at Number Seven, but that loser Michael E Mann's book, Dreary Predictions, is down at Number 15.
