GOP Radio - Where We Love McCain!

GLENN: Well, good morning this morning and afternoon. It's WGOP radio, all Republican radio all the time. My, oh, my, the primary in Florida last night. Oh, these Republicans are happy last night. John McCain won, John McCain. How the hell did that happen? Here's the Eagles. Hello? Hello?


 


 STU: Hello? What are you doing?


 


 GLENN: Who is this?


 


 STU: This is your program director.


 


 GLENN: What do you mean what am I doing? I'm playing --


 


 STU: First of all, you stepped all over that intro.


 


 GLENN: I did it with style.


 


 STU: No, I mean, you were talking right over what they were singing.


 


 GLENN: That's all right. I'm not really in a mood today, okay? You know what I'm saying?


 


 STU: Why aren't you happy? Big primary last night. We had to talk about Republican issues.


 


 GLENN: John McCain won.


 


 STU: Yeah, John McCain, Republican, frontrunner.


 


 GLENN: We're the Republican radio station.


 


 STU: I know, I know. And John McCain's Republican. Look at the odds right after his bid.


 


 GLENN: What did you say?


 


 STU: The Rs right after his name.


 


 GLENN: But he is not really a Republican.


 


 STU: No, I said John McCain, R.


 


 GLENN: Have you seen his amnesty proposal?


 


 STU: I know, it's fantastic. I now love it.


 


 GLENN: What do you mean you now love it?


 


 STU: I now love it. It's going to be great. The --


 


 GLENN: We were on the air for months hating it.


 


 STU: No, it was --


 


 GLENN: This guy was in charge of the amnesty program. He partnered with Ted Kennedy.


 


 STU: Yeah, I know. We love partnering with Ted Kennedy. I think this is the future of the party.


 


 GLENN: You know who Juan Hernandez is, right?


 


 STU: Oh, Juan, he is a great whopper. He is going to be fantastic.


 


 GLENN: You hated Juan Hernandez. Juan Hernandez is the guy who says there should be one great state, Mex-Ameri-Canada. He says that Canada and Mexico and the United States should just all get together, once a Mexican, always a Mexican.


 


 STU: This is ridiculous. You are talking about yesterday when I said that?


 


 GLENN: What?


 


 STU: You're talking about yesterday when I said I didn't like Juan Hernandez.


 


 GLENN: Yes.


 


 STU: This is today. John McCain won last night. Now I love him. I need you to get a little bit more pep in your voice when you are doing these breaks. These songs are way down key. They are low-key. People are excited today to vote for John McCain for President.


 


 GLENN: Hang on. Hey, that's the eagles and desperado on WGOP radio where, whoo, cowboy, John McCain won last night. And I mean, it's -- hey. Maybe Joe Lieberman could run with him because they're good buddies, too. Joe Lieberman and John McCain and wouldn't that be, you know, the whole global warming thing. They will be on top of that one with John McCain in the White House. And congratulations from all of us here at WGOP where the party goes on.


 


 (Music playing.)


 


 GLENN: Hello?


 


 STU: Hello?


 


 GLENN: Why are you calling me again?


 


 STU: Well, first of all, I don't even think that last song was over. You started a song in the middle of it.


 


 GLENN: I can't take it anymore.


 


 STU: I think that's the thing to do. Second of all, this is a sad song. Where is the party?


 


 GLENN: This isn't a sad song. This is a true song, all of us living in the ghetto oh.


 


 STU: I don't know what you're basing that on.


 


 GLENN: McCain/Lieberman, man, McCain/Lieberman. You have global warming. $1.2 trillion every year.


 


 STU: Well, yeah, but you've got to think about, don't be a global warming denier. Is that what you are?


 


 GLENN: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. This is WGOP radio. When did we ever say that?


 


 STU: Since last night. We now believe you are in the pocket of big oil if you disagree with anything related to global warming.


 


 GLENN: I thought you were against all of that stuff.


 


 STU: People said, look, forget about Islamic terrorism. Think about 0.7 degrees over a century. Whoa!


 


 GLENN: I just don't, I don't think I can do it. I'm sorry.


 


 STU: People love global warming. Republicans are all about global warming, Glenn.


 


 GLENN: How are we going to afford, if the guy doesn't even believe in tax cuts?


 


 STU: Tax cuts? Tax cuts hurt the economy, of course.


 


 GLENN: What?


 


 STU: I'm not -- I can't possibly support a tax cut that's going to go to the richest 1%. That's what all about, huh? You know what I'm saying.


 


 GLENN: Hang on, I think my song is ending.


 


 STU: I don't think it is. I don't think it's over yet.


 


 GLENN: I think it's over. WGOP radio and where, damn the rich. That's why we're fighting now for John McCain because, boy, those rich, huh? We've got to think about those little babies in the ghetto there and the only way to do it is to put the rich people in the ghettos next to him because maybe they've got a warm jacket they could throw over that baby and that, of course,, that's the way to solve it here at WGOP radio. And congratulations to John McCain who won last night and, of course, voted against those tax cuts, was against them until, I don't know, a couple of weeks ago but he is reaching out now to the conservatives now that he's got all the liberals and so we know we can believe him. Here's a little Elton John on GOP.


 


 (Music playing. )


 


 GLENN: What?


 


 STU: I mean, have you ever been on the radio before? You stepped all over that intro again.


 


 GLENN: It's because my engineer who hung up on Rudy Giuliani yesterday --


 


 STU: No, we fired Andros, didn't we?


 


 GLENN: No, I don't think so. But nothing in this radio station makes sense anymore. I mean, John McCain, man, how can you now be for John McCain? He is the guy who told the world Wall Street Journal, may I quote?


 


 STU: Yeah, sure, I'd love to hear a quote.


 


 GLENN: More recently McCain has told conservatives he would be happy to appoint the likes of Chief Justice John Roberts to the Supreme Court but he indicated he might draw the line on Samuel Alito because he wore his conservatism on his sleeve.


 


 STU: Amen to that, huh? You know, I tell you one of the things that's fantastic about this country and John McCain is that none of these damn conservatives will get jobs anymore in the Supreme Court.


 


 GLENN: But I thought we wanted Supreme Court justices that were conservative that, you know, read the Constitution as the founding fathers intended it.


 


 STU: Are you referring to when I said that yesterday?


 


 GLENN: Yes.


 


 STU: Yeah, but last night John McCain won. Did you not see the news? He won. So now my principles are different. Do you understand how it works? He won by 5%, 5%!


 


 GLENN: Hang on. I think my song is over.


 


 STU: No, it's not. I can hear it. We're not even halfway through the song.


 


 GLENN: This may be one of the last times I'm actually going to say anything. WGOP radio and sad songs, oh, they say so very much, don't they? They really do. On WGOP radio, good morning, this afternoon and evening. I'm glad that you've tuned in and this may be one of our last broadcasts because John McCain, who is not a phone thrower, of course, has his vindictiveness in check, certainly wouldn't be a guy who could lead the charge for bipartisan support for, you know, the Fairness Doctrine. Of course, he loves everybody on talk radio and their support and I know that he, of course, would not lead that bipartisan support for the Fairness Doctrine and go ahead and put that thing through because he understood freedom of speech as evidenced by McCain/Feingold.


 


 Now another great hit tune on WGOP. Where it's going to be sunny today and a high of 75 degrees and maybe a little bit of rain tonight, low of 44 and we --.


 


 (Music playing.)


 


 GLENN: What?


 


 STU: You just waited about 10 seconds and then started the weather. Why did you do that?


 


 GLENN: I think it was Dan Andros.


 


 STU: Are you pinning that one on Andros, too? Listen, one problem with your last break there.


 


 GLENN: Yeah.


 


 STU: You didn't mention any Democratic issues. I don't know if you know --


 


 GLENN: WGOP radio.


 


 STU: Yeah, I know, but campaign finance reform means that you have to like issues such as tax raises just as much as you like the ones as tax cuts.


 


 GLENN: You know, I just saw a station newsletter.


 


 STU: Right.


 


 GLENN: I don't think this is a good idea. I think this will destroy WGOP.


 


 STU: No, no, no, no, no. John McCain won last night by 5 points.


 


 GLENN: Well, I know. But the newsletter.


 


 STU: Yeah.


 


 GLENN: You know, the McCain Times.


 


 STU: Right.


 


 GLENN: I don't know if this is a good idea. I think it might destroy us.


 


 STU: No, it's going to be great, talks all about the important issues that people care about like raising taxes.


 


 GLENN: You just renamed moveon.org's newsletter.


 


 STU: Well, yeah. I mean, people care about the important issue of the day, global warming, making sure we shut down Guantanamo, what people care about today in the Republican party. I mean, he won by 5%.


 


 GLENN: Hang on just a second. I think my song's ending.


 


 STU: No, I can hear it. The song, this is not even -- we're not even --


 


 GLENN: Well, here we are, WGOP, good morning and afternoon, good evening. I'm glad you're here listening to us. Of course the big news today that we're all excited about, John McCain won Florida last night and, of course, we're all sticking to our values, the guy who we all loved so much last summer we are now rooting for and I think that's what makes WGOP the icon that it is and always will be. So we're excited. We're going to sign off the air after this commercial message.


 


 VOICE: Hillary Clinton says she's the candidate for change. Fact: Hillary Clinton is a career politician and seeks nothing but power. Fact: Hillary Clinton's husband once served as President for two terms. Fact: Hillary Clinton lived in the White House for eight years. That doesn't sound like change. It sounds like more of the same old, same old Washington politics. Don't make the same mistake again. It's time to vote for real change. Elect an outsider to put an end to the Bush/Clinton quagmire, someone without all the ties to inside beltway corruption and Washington lobbyists, someone who will give America the fresh start it so desperately needs. That someone is here and they're winning: John McCain. A true Washington outsider for change. John McCain has served over 25 years in Washington, D.C. Since his two terms as congressman, John McCain has been a United States senator ever since January 3rd, 1987. Eight years of George W. Bush being right on most issues is long enough. It's time for America to have a President who isn't afraid to be wrong. John McCain isn't afraid. He's been wrong on almost every policy he's touched and he's never lived in the White House.

 GLENN: That's fantastic, yeah!

William "Bill" Kelly is 95-year-old World War II veteran from Oregon. He lived through the Great Depression.
He served in the South Pacific during World War II. And now he has just fought the coronavirus -- and won.

Bill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to share his experience and a hopeful message about why the younger generations can overcome this crisis.

"I want to tell the people, it wasn't pleasant, but on the other hand, you know, if you do what you're supposed to do, and you have some loved ones around you, and do a lot of praying, why, you'll come through okay. We [American's] have been through a lot. We've been through Pearl Harbor. We've been through the Great Depression, and who knows what else. We're tough. We'll get through it. Hang in there," Bill said.

"You know, it's just -- it's in our American blood," he added. "We're that type of people. We take care of each other, and we are not going to break down. We're going to make it through, every time. Every time."

"There are people that don't think we are those people anymore. That it was the greatest generation -- your generation -- that did it, but now we're not the same people. Do you agree with that? Glenn asked.

"No," asserted Bill. "And the reason I say that is because I remember when I was a young kid, you know, and people, the older people, said 'all those young kids are soft' ... but when we were attacked at Pearl Harbor -- sneak attack, you know -- it's surprising how those so-called goofy kids turned into mighty fine fighting people. And they're very loyal. I have lots of faith in them ... no, I don't have any problems with this new generation. They'll take care of us. We're Americans."

  • 17% of Americans who have been tested have been diagnosed with COVID-19
COVID-19 Now Killing Victims Who Don't Have COVID-19 https://nypost.com/2020/04/02/coronavirus-nyc-emts-stop-taking-cardiac-arrest-patients-to-hospitals/
  • EMTs in New York have been given a directive not to transport heart-attack victims to hospitals if they cannot be revived at the scene.
  • Prior cardiac arrest victims would have been transported to hospitals for further life-saving procedures, but with hospitals being overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients, heart attack victims are solely in the hands of local EMTs. If EMTs cannot restore a pulse at the scene, victims are to be left there to die.
  • "Artificial ventilation and/or compressions must not be delayed," the memo states, adding that chest "compressions must begin as soon as it is determined the patient does not have a pulse."
  • But the guidelines change if the patient cannot be revived before arriving at a hospital.
  • "In the event a resuscitation is terminated, and the body is in public view, the body can be left in the custody of the NYPD."
China Lied, People Died Trending on Social Media https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-04-01/china-concealed-extent-of-virus-outbreak-u-s-intelligence-says
  • US Intelligence Services has concluded what the Internet has known since January: The Chinese Communist Party lied about total infected and total deaths due to Coronavirus.
  • Citing a report provided to the White House last week, officials confirmed that US Intelligence concludes 'gross' underreporting of total cases and total deaths, especially from Hubei Province.
  • Many have speculated that numbers coming out of China, Iran, North Korea, Russia and other totalitarian countries have been dramatically underreported, by as much as a factor of 10 according to official British Intelligence reports.
  • The early misrepresentation of data by the CCP may have lead some Western Politicians and epidemiologists to underestimate the seriousness of COVID-19 and delayed response in Italy, Spain, the UK and the US.
  • Though why anybody would have believed anything the Chinese Communist Party had to say remains an open question...
Italy's Death Toll Far Higher Than Reported https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/italys-coronavirus-death-toll-is-far-higher-than-reported/ar-BB122vvc
  • In the town of Coccaglio, an hour's drive east of here, the local nursing home lost over a third of its residents in March. None of the 24 people who died there were tested for the new coronavirus. Nor were the 38 people who died in another nursing home in the nearby town of Lodi.
  • These aren't isolated incidents. Italy's official death toll from the virus stands at 13,155, the most of any country in the world. But that number tells only part of the story because many people who die from the virus don't make it to the hospital and are never tested, therefore they aren't included in official numbers.
  • "They were all sick, they all had flu-like symptoms and difficulty breathing," stated a nurse from one of the nursing homes. "We had no ambulance to get them to Milan."
  • In the areas worst hit by the pandemic, Italy is undercounting thousands of deaths caused by the virus, a Wall Street Journal analysis shows, indicating that the pandemic's human toll may end up being much greater, and infections far more widespread, than official data indicate.
  • As stretched and sometimes overwhelmed hospitals fight to save their patients, many other people die unseen and uncounted, including elderly people in out-of-the-way locations.
  • In addition, the health-care crisis can lead to a surge of deaths from other causes that would normally be treatable.
  • "There are many more dead from the virus than are officially declared... People died and they were never tested because time and resources are limited," Eugenio Fossati, deputy mayor of Coccaglio, says of deaths caused by the virus.
More Numbers Hard to Trust as Bodies Left On The Streets in Ecuador https://www.scmp.com/news/world/americas/article/3078077/coronavirus-bodies-are-being-left-streets-ecuador
  • Coronavirus: bodies are being left on the streets in Ecuador.
  • 'They fall in front of hospitals or in back street alleys, or in small villages…no one wants to recover them,' says the mayor of Ecuador's largest city.
  • The army is placing unclaimed bodies in refrigerated cargo containers at the port while authorities pursue plans for a new cemetery.
  • The corpses have been overwhelming Guayaquil, a port city of 2.8 million at the epicenter of the coronavirus crisis in Ecuador.
  • Over the last few days, several were wrapped in plastic and left on the streets. Others have lain unclaimed in hospitals and clinics that have been overwhelmed by infections. The city morgue is full.
  • The majority of the dead are believed to be victims of the virus, but nobody can say for sure how many. There has been little testing.
  • The country has confirmed 2,700 infections and 93 deaths - 60 of them in Guayaquil and its immediate surroundings. But municipal officials there said they have recovered at least 400 bodies in the last 3 days.
  • Mayor Cynthia Viteri, who announced that she has also tested positive for the virus, said the national government should be responsible for collecting the corpses.
  • "They're leaving them in the villages, they are stacked in front of hospitals," she said in a Twitter video message to residents late last week.
  • Many local villages in Ecuador are simply burying the dead in unmarked graves, which will make official counting of COVID-19 victims impossible in the weeks ahead.
50% of Viral Spread Comes from People With No Symptoms https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/01/health/us-coronavirus-updates-wednesday/index.html
  • Researchers in Iceland have confirmed earlier reports from Hong Kong that a significant amount of viral spread is caused by carriers who have no symptoms.
  • In the US, Doctors at the CDC have confirmed asymptomatic spread, but estimate a number of about 25%.
  • If true, then the case for all persons to wear masks, even those who don't have symptoms, becomes much stronger.
  • To prevent further spread, the top infectious disease expert in the US says health officials are reconsidering guidance on face masks.
  • Dr. Anthony Fauci said he would "lean towards" recommending that the general public wear face masks "if we do not have the problem of taking away masks from the health care workers who need them. The public can stay home to avoid infection, but health care workers cannot," he said.
  • "We're not there yet, but I think we're close to coming to some determination," Fauci said.
Ship vs Train... Ship Wins https://abc7.com/usns-mercy-coronavirus-train-crash-derailment/6069395/
  • A Locomotive Engineer in Los Angeles has been charged with 1 Count of "Train Wrecking", a Class A Felony under Federal Law, after purposely derailing his freight train while attempting to sink the US Hospital ship Mercy.
  • Eduardo Moreno, 44, intended to hit the ship, saying he thought it was "suspicious" and did not believe "the ship is what they say it's for.'"
  • Moreno admitted to crashing the train intentionally but said he did not plan it out in advance. It is believed that he acted alone.
  • He allegedly made statements to a CHP officer that included "You only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don't know what's going on here. Now they will."
  • Officials say video from inside the train's cab shows Moreno holding a lighted flare during the incident.
Biggest Issue With COVID-19 in Malaysia: Nagging Wives https://www.npr.org/2020/04/01/825051317/dont-nag-your-husband-during-lock-down-malaysias-government-advises-women
  • Malaysia has the largest number of COVID-19 cases in Southeast Asia with more than 2,900 and counting.
  • This week, Malaysia's government also had a serious public relations issue after an ill-conceived plan went online.
  • Malaysia's Ministry for Women, Family and Community Development issued a series of online posters on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #WomenPreventCOVID19. It advised the nation's women to help with the country's partial lockdown by not nagging their husbands.
  • The ministry also advised women to refrain from being "sarcastic" if they asked for help with household chores.
  • Additionally, the Ministry urged women working from home to dress up and wear makeup.
  • After some negative response on social media, the public service messages have been removed from the Ministry's Facebook page.

MyPillow inventor and CEO Mike Lindell was lambasted by the left and mainstream media after he announced at a White House press briefing on Monday that his company will start making tens of thousands of masks to fight against the spread of coronavirus. Lindell also thanked God for President Donald Trump and encouraged Americans to turn back to God in this time of crisis.

Read the details here.

Whether it was his support for President Trump or strong religious beliefs, no one has lit up the media quite like Mike Lindell. He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to talk about the president, the 'horrible, crazy media' and how he's not afraid to keep speaking out about his faith.

"I think people are going to quit being brainwashed by this horrible, crazy media -- they know who they are -- and the public is going to see the amazing job that our president is doing," Lindell said. "I've done interview after interview today. I'm taking all the bad ones on -- I think I'm going on 'The View' tomorrow I love it. I want to go right into the hurricane. Finally, I get to speak out for Jesus like I want to."

News broke that German Finance Minister Thomas Schaefer reportedly committed suicide on Saturday due to the stress from the economic climate during the coronavirus crisis. Unfortunately, this headline may become more common place. Concerns are far beyond those of just hand washing, finding toilet paper and the latest White House briefings. There may be a secondary crisis growing — mental health and suicide.

Messages fill my inbox daily from parents worried about their teens showing signs of risk of suicidal ideation. Spouses concerned about the toil recent layoffs will have on their partners. Elderly family members are also vulnerable.

Last week, news a father of three dying by suicide made me want to scream to the world – "LISTEN!" We are losing too many of our human family. And I am afraid with COVID-19 on the scene, we are going to lose more than ever.

During the past six years — following the suicide of my 40-year-old sister — my mission has been to bring awareness and help prevent suicide. Everyone is exposed to suicide. You either struggle with depression/anxiety, you love someone that struggles, or like me, you have already lost someone to suicide. That is literally everyone on the planet. Bigger numbers than even the virus.

Little known fact. Springtime is a peak season for suicides. Even compared to the holidays.

Little known fact. Springtime is a peak season for suicides. Even compared to the holidays.

So, pile on the constant stream of news, stats about COVID-19 deaths and a lock down on social distancing, even the most emotionally skilled individual may be drowning in vulnerability and at risk.

What can be done?

Social distancing, not isolation

Even though we are standing 6ft apart in the grocery stores, and no longer going to church together, humans need connection to survive.

Free communication apps like Marco Polo are a great way to not hide behind a text. Whether it is on video chat or old fashion letter writing, making connection a priority is crucial for our survival.

Emotional check-in

The new normal seems to be changing by the hour. It is hard to keep up, recalibrating with all the change. Just like the importance of taking temperature to check for virus symptoms, we need to monitor our emotional temp. Try the one word check-in, at dinner time, simply by asking, "How am I feeling today?" It can be a great barometer.

Naming our feelings keep them tamed.

It's Ok to not be Ok

It is crucial to our survival to frame this crisis with a mental health back drop. Suicide, depression and anxiety concerns should be at the top of the STAY HOME and STAY SAFE list. If you find yourself feeling helpless or having thoughts of self-harm, please reach out for additional support. Therapists are using online formats to serve their clients. Call your doctor or one of the many 1-800 numbers.

No one is an extra, disposable member of our human family.

If you are reading this and struggling. Please remember, we will never be better without you. No one is an extra, disposable member of our human family. We will make it thru this COVID-19 crisis stronger and closer than before. No longer will we take hugging our neighbor for granted.

And maybe, just maybe we will someday find the vaccine that stops suicide virus from spreading.
