A week ago I turned on my radio as I usually do, to listen to Glenn Beck as I get ready for work. A cheerful woman was speaking and she didn’t say she was “sitting in” for Glenn Beck. I kept listening to see if she would explain why she was on instead of Glenn. There was no explanation but when Rick Santorum was interviewed via phone on the show and he congratulated her on her new show, I knew she was replacing Glenn altogether. I wondered why. Glenn is the third highest rated radio program nation wide. Rush Limbaugh is first, Hannity is second. Los Angeles is the biggest market in the country and Glenn was the highest rated show on KRLA, so why would they drop him? And without warning or explanation?

I called KRLA and asked for an explanation. I was told it was a “programing decision” and they hoped I’d give Heidi Harris a chance. I told them I would not. I e-mailed the owners and manager of the station and asked for an explanation. I told them if they had been pressured or threatened they should tell us because we could help. I had a back and forth conversation with them for two days. They insisted they were not pressured, that this was simply a “programing decision”. I told them I found that hard to believe. Having worked in the Entertainment Industry for more than 30 years, I have never been in a meeting with producers where they wanted to replace their highest rated show for no reason.

I won’t be listening to Heidi Harris, in fact, although I like the rest of the lineup on KRLA, I won’t be listening to KRLA at all. Hopefully the rest of their lineup will find homes at other stations. I can no longer sit silently as Conservative speech is silenced. And what message does this send the other Conservative hosts on KRLA? Will they fear being dropped if they are as honest as Glenn? I like many Conservative hosts but the most honest and fearless are being targeted and it’s becoming harder to hear them. I am a member of GBTV but I pay for it and many people can’t afford that. Glenn is on Sirius radio the same time he WAS on KRLA so I looked into it but I would have to buy a Sirius radio and it would cost about $30.00 a month on top of that. This obviously limits how many people have access to Glenn’s shows in Los Angeles. It also limits how many new listeners as people can’t hear him unless they go out of their way.

In my research to find out why Glenn was dropped, I found a petition asking people to sign to get the “Hateful” Glenn Beck off the air. I have heard Liberals call Glenn “hateful” many times as well as that he lies. I always ask very respectfully for an example and they can never give one but they are willing to believe that he is a hateful liar. There have been a few examples of Glenn being mistaken and he quickly admitted it and explained why he was mistaken, but I’m not aware of him “lying” about anything. He normally has video or some other proof of what he says and ALWAYS tells his listeners NOT to believe him but to do their own research. I have yet to hear a Liberal ask anyone not to take their word for something, let alone research it for yourself.

I went to Glenn’s 8/28 last summer in DC. I sat on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial because I wanted to be able to see all the people. The event was called, “Restoring Honor” and was nothing but inspiring people and stories. It was a call for all of us to be the best we can be. To be responsible and caring. We pledged our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor to each other. We pledged allegiance to the flag, we sang the Star Spangled Banner and we prayed together. It was the most friendly, most polite crowd I’ve ever seen. Although the crowds were shoulder to shoulder, not an inch between, there was no pushing, no annoyed words. People smiled and hugged and broke into conversation with strangers.

In response to “Restoring Honor”, the left through Jon Stewart and Colbert had a rally of their own called, “Restoring Sanity”. Restoring Sanity? …….Sanity? When did honor become insane? When did asking people to be the best they can be become insane? So it is now insane to suggest morality, honor, personal responsibility are good things?

What is insane is that most “celebrities” these days are pushing for irresponsibility. The “Restoring Sanity” rally was sponsored and supported by the Socialist Party and the Communist Party, CAIR and most unions. The crowd was a fraction of Glenn’s and carried signs that demanded the rest of us support them. What is insane is thinking the government can determine your life better than you can. What is insane is supporting law breaking and lawbreakers. The left wants no one held responsible for their choices or behavior. To the left everything is relative. If someone broke the law, they couldn’t help it. Everyone is just a victim of circumstances. And because Conservatives believe that there are consequences for behavior and people should be held to those consequences we’re called “extremists” and “terrorists”.

Conservatives believe in God, country, the rule of law and that we are responsible for our destiny. That’s called extreme? We know we can take care of ourselves because we have been our entire lives. We know everyone else (unless severely mentally handicapped) is capable of taking care of themselves too. Unlike Liberals we don’t think minorities are incapable. We know they’re not. We don’t put people in hyphenated groups and tell them they’re victims that can’t possibly succeed without our help. We know they can. We believe in people, ourselves and this country.

But our voices are being silenced. The left is working feverishly behind the scenes to make sure our spokespeople are reaching fewer and fewer people. They got Glenn off FOX and now dropped from radio in the biggest market in the country. Why? Conservatives don’t try to silence Liberals. We understand how vital fee speech is to our Liberty. But the left is always trying to silence the right. Why? If we are lying, prove it. Shouldn’t be hard because the truth is always the truth. As Glenn says, “The truth has no agenda”. But they know we aren’t lying and they can’t afford to have the truth told.

    Perhaps if his vulgar treatment of the President, the First Lady and their family doesn’t bother you, maybe his insult to a revered CIvil RIghts era song would:

    • Vulgar treatment? I see you didn’t say he lied about them, just that his treatment is “vulgar”. How should a man who dislikes this country and it’s people be treated? How should a man who wants to “fundamentaly transform” the richest, most successful, freest country in the world into a socialist country? How should you treat a man who WANTS our energy to be unaffordable? Who is planning to sign our sovereignty over to the UN. See how much you admire Obama when our sovereignty is gone.

      Never in our history have we had a POTUS who encouraged race and class warfare. Who pitted groups against each other. Rather than bring us together he has encouraged and cheered on divisiveness. Nor have we ever had a POTUS so lacking in humility.

      However, free speech applies to everyone, NOT just people you agree with. Glenn Beck has treated this POTUS with MUCH MORE respect than Bill Maher, David Letterman and many others have treated Conservatives, especially Conservative women. I don’t want them off the air. If they can silence anyone, they can silence you.

    • You listened to that entire piece and all you got was an insult? You didn’t think Fallon & Obama’s piece was insulting to the office od POTUS? And you don’t think Bush was insulted everyday he was in office? GROW UP!

    • NO, I don’t know. People have given me other stations he is supposed to be on but they must be local because I’ve tuned in and he’s not there. I tried listening on line but it seems to be repeats of previous shows. I loved listening to him while I get ready in the morning because he talked about what was happening right now. I looked into sirius radio but the radio cost $200 and the subscription was more than $30 a month. I’m not willing to pay that to listen to ONE show.

        The Blaze on The Dish Network

      • Yes, I know. But his radio show is still not airing in Los Angeles. I used to listen to Glenn while getting ready for work and driving to work. Now, I listen to it on my cell phone from a NY station but it cuts out now and then. I have DISH so I was very happy when he got his own channel on DISH.

    Listen on line at 970 WFLA. It’s a Tampa station.

  4. bob hughes says:

    Lucky for us we have xm radio so we can listen to Glen Beck..I tried calling the station but could not get through…I too spent 35 years in broadcasting…and have a fair idea of how these things work…

  5. Deborah Leigh says:

    KZNU Fox News 1450 in Utah carries Glenn. The good news is that it isn’t aired eastern standard time, so we don’t have to get up early to listen.

    I tried signing up for Glenn’s service, but it didn’t go through. Glad I found this station as a back up.

    It is It is outrageous that KRLA dropped Beck. I called them too with the same results. Heidi Harris is okay, but not in the same league with Glenn. I used to listen to Glenn, then Dennis.

    OT. The story that Glenn covered today about Kimberlin is chilling, but there is another blogger that has been tageted by this terrorist. Robert Stacy McCain of The Other McCain blog, and author of “Donkey Cons”. Stacy has had to relocate his family, in other words, go into hiding. We need to support all these bloggers. Stacy has seven kids, so we’ve been sending donations. Get the word out. They come for one of us, they must come for all of us.

    Good blog! Keep up the great work!

    • Thanks, Deborah, Yes, I know about Kimberlin and I’ve followed McCain as long as I’ve been on twitter. Yesterday on twitter we spent the day in support of McCain and calling out Kimberlin. He’s a cancer that needs to be cut out. Thanks for the kind words.

    “They insisted they were not pressured, that this was simply a “programing decision”.”

    Yes, it was about “programming”; yes, it was a “decision”; and, yes, they never “pressure” themselves. They simply silenced Glenn Beck, that’s all.
    Liberals think they are so clever — it makes them wonder why they never have successful radio programs themselves. Don’t tell them that The Truth matters. 😀

  7. June says:

    Glen Beck can be heard on 1590 AM from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 pm. weekday mornings. The station comes out of San DIego I believe. It used to be 1540 which came in clearer but they said they “up-graded” it to 1590 and it would be better but its not.

    • THANKS:) I have DishTV and his radio show is on at 6AM to 9AM on Dish, plus I listen to him on IheartRadio on my cell phone when I’m not home But thanks for your help:) Go to the facebook page of your cable provider and tell them you want THE BLAZE on your cable lineup.
