A FINAL FAREWELL LETTER FROM THE GUNNY TO HIS AUDIENCE(Freeper GunnyBob)
Newsradio 850 KOA ^ | 3 August 2009 | Bob Newman

A FINAL FAREWELL LETTER FROM THE GUNNY TO HIS AUDIENCE

Gang:

Yes, this is the end of an era. But it also the beginning of a new one.

It is hard to know where to start, but I figure I had first better thank you for making the Gunny Bob Show the top-rated evening news-talk program in the Denver Metro region. Without you, my show's ratings would never have been strong enough over all these years to always be the #1 show in that slot, even handily beating the fat cat syndicated hosts with ease. I owe all that to you. Your loyalty means more to me than I can describe.

I must also thank Clear Channel's Lee Larsen, Robin Bertolucci and Kris Olinger for all of their support, as well as Dominic Bond and Matt Larsen, my producers, for their excellent work.

So why am I doing this? Why am I marching back into the mouth of the tiger?

There's no single reason, but rather a combination. However, one outweighs the others.

The Marine Corps spent a lot of money, time and effort training me over 20 years to understand and defeat terrorists. After I retired, I became a counterterrorism consultant for the media (FOX News, the BBC, CBS, etc.) and eventually founded my own counterterrorism company, after working for two other companies in the role of counterterrorism instructor, analyst and advisor. From October 2001 to last week, I issued nearly 200 accurate predictions, warnings and assessments (as well as stories broken) in the war on terror, all documented. I have made several predictions so accurate that I even named the exact facilities to be attacked, how they would be attacked, and by what terrorist group in what timeframe, and when you can do that, you get people's attention. I traveled to many countries in the performance of my counterterrorism duties (UAE, China, Hong Kong, Philippines, UK, Brazil, India and so on) and my reputation grew in this time to the point that people started asking me to help them in more and more ways.

About a month ago, an organization (don't make any assumptions) approached me and asked that I relocate to their location and be their counterterrorism and security advisor. This organization has people and assets in a country that is infested with terrorists in a huge region of the planet that is infested with terrorists. They need me to keep their people alive and their assets intact, and that is what I intend to do. If things collapse in this country and region, we here in America will absolutely, beyond any doubt, be targeted far more often. I can't allow that to happen, so I resigned from Clear Channel (my bosses were a bit surprised and none too pleased), accepted the new position and do the seabag drag to my new gig this Saturday.

Gang, if what I will do in my new position will help keep Americans alive back home and abroad, how can I say no when it is my duty to say yes?

So, adios gang. I will think of you often, as I hope you do me.

Semper Fidelis,

Gunny, out

Keep US updated whenever possible. I was working outside today but had my radio on to Rush and apparently the dear leader has decided to no longer classify terrorists/war on terrorism, as just that. We are no longer at war against terrorism. So I am expecting the Jon Stewart media to follow their dear leader's declaration and whitewash over any activities and attacks against US as law and order acts. We may well need to have someone from outside our country to keep US appraised as to what is actually going on around this globe.

Prayers for your safekeeping.

Yes, one and the same. I was really bummed when he announced this last Monday night. He would eviscerate liberal callers like not even Rush can do. They don't have a replacement announced yet. One of the possible contenders is pretty good; He often filled in for Gunny Bob. Another one is Michael Brown, yes the same 'Brownie' of Bush's Homeland Security. He lives here now. He is more or less what I think of as Bill Bennett 'light'. I just realized that last night when he had a whiney (about the 'screaming mobs with their swastikas) caller on and agreed with the caller.

I still have not listened to Bennett since he began his stupifying rapture of this monster that has infested our White House 2 weeks before the Urination (1/20/2009, another day that will forever live in infamy along with 11/04/2008, 9/11/2001 and 12/07/1941).

Two MAJOR strikes against Brown. Bennett is just another RINO. He isn't as bad as some RINOs, but he's a RINO nonetheless. And BROWN AGREED WITH THE CALLER!!!! Super bad.

I dunno. He says he is going to a place where there is a "large country" that is "overrun by terrorists" and we "need to win there" to preserve "our country". Sounds to me like he is staying right here.

FReepers:

I want to thank you from the bottom of my cold, cold heart for the very kind and motivating words here.

Yes, I will watch my six. Some liberals have blogged that want me to be killed over there; I will do my best to disappoint them. And yes, I will keep you all posted.

This mission is going to take a while, but when it is complete, perhaps I will return to the airwaves and FOX News Channel.

Well, I have to pack my seabag and learn three foreign languages in the next 24 hours or so, so I better get my butt in gear.

Semper Fidelis,
