I haven't heard anything from him in awhile. Does anyone know?
Carl from Oyster Bay ...?
The man disappeared after Bob Grant folded up his show.
Good question .... Used to be quite the caller on Talk Radio Shows ..... Like you, havent heard anything for long time now.
Inquiring minds want to know...
He was involved with NEWSMAX in its early days, after he gained attention as “Carl from Oyster Bay”, and may still be involved with Newsmax. I don’t read it much, but it was flooding my Inbox for a few years with a multitude of promotions and gimmicky ads, come-ons, offers, etc., so much that it seemed it was no longer any kind of news magazine at all, but a clearinghouse for ad revenue.THey also still run regular radio ads for some kind of “emergency radio” equipment which we all need in this era of terrorism, the implication goes.
When I googled Carl from Oyster Bay, personal information with phone number came up for Carl Limbacher. He used to turn up everywhere.
I had a subscription to NewsMax magazine. It bills itself as independent. I thought it was conservative. I was very disappointed by some of their articles. They had a summation of the Bush Presidency that was entirely negative. Most of the criticism was from the left - and wrong. One article included favorable words for Barney Frank's contributions to financial regulation. I let my subscription run out.
Human Events is very good, but I don't like the paper they use. HumanEvents.com is my default webpage. My next magazine subscription will probably be for National Review. If I wanted a daily, it would probably be the Wall Street Journal or Independent Business Daily.
Do you mean Investors Business Daily?
How much association did Carl have with WND during his time with Newsmax?
Did you ever find out about Carl? He has disappeared as assuredly as Osama. I met him a decade ago, and he seemed like a great guy,and a true fountain of knowledge. In Carl’s absence, Chris Ruddy has become rather chummy with the deplorable Clintons. If you still don’t know about Mr. Limbacher, could you bump the thread perhaps? Thanks! Bob
No, I still haven’t found out what he does. Bob Grant doesn’t mention him either. Bob would probably know where Carl went. Does bump the thread mean repost it?
NewsMax used to be very conservative. It’s disappointing that they took a left turn.
Yes indeed, I think! I just hope he’s all right. Carl from Oyster Bay seemed like a true patriot. Bob
This IS odd. All internet mentions of Carl Limbacher have been scrubbed. As if he's in a Stalin photograph, and became an un-person.
My favorite talk show caller nowadays is Jimmy from Brooklyn. He has a pretty encyclopedic knowledge of communist history and movements around the world. Savage and Bill Cunningham both take him seriously. Hannity always writes him off as a conspiracy nut and starts playing the Twilight Zone theme...just one more reason I find it hard to take Hannity seriously.
Unless he pulled his own file, it's one of those things that make you think we woke up in China.
I wrote in a search, “Whatever happened to Carl Limbaucher?” and this link came up. I remember all the callers you mentioned, from the Bob Grant show on WABC back in the day. I also wonder whatever happened to Frank from Queens and John from Staten Island. I think it was those two who went off and tried to start their own program on ‘shortwave’. Jimmy from Brooklyn always had it right about the communists. Jimmy was calling it all before Glenn Beck made it popular.
If you tune into Bill Cunningham on Sunday nights, or Savage during the week, you’ll still occasionally hear Jimmy from Brooklyn.
