Fred Grandy is entertaining and conservative. What a loss to people in WMAL’s listening area.

They got Michael Graham like that too. CAIR hates anyone exposing their agendas.

Former Congressman Fred Grandy is no longer on WMAL Radio in Washington, DC because he and his wife told the truth about the threat which Shariah and Radical Islam pose to America. Fred Grandy and “Mrs. Fred” interviewed former FBI agents, experts on Shariah law and activists who are fighting radical Islamists in their communities. They told the truth about radical jihadists and their plans to gut the Constitution and destroy America.

On March 2, 2011, WMAL’s management told Grandy he needed to “tone down” any stories on radical Islam. They also told him his wife, an outspoken critic of Islamist infiltration, could not be included in future programs. Fred Grandy refused to accept those conditions and that was his last day on WMAL radio.

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an unindicted co-conspirator in the federal Holy Land Foundation terror-financing trial, has complained about Grandy’s outspoken criticism of their organization and other radical groups.

WMAL has a record of yielding to CAIR demands. On two previous occasions, the station removed talk show hosts who had been targeted by CAIR.

If the program directors at WMAL had a lick of sense and a grain of courage they would move Nieman to late night traffic reporting and get ahead of the curve by having “Mr and Mrs Fred” their 5 to 9 show.

Good man, Fred Grandy. He was an excellent Congressman, as was the surprising Sonny Bono, whose common sense belied his easy-going demeanor.

I CRINGE every time someone calls Fred Grandy a conservative.

I grew up in Iowa. I lived there when he was a congressman from Iowa. Fortunately, to the preservation of my shame, he was not from my area, so he is not my fault.

I do not know whether his voting record is online, but if you can find it, you will see he voted a liberal line on every action brought up during his tenure. Whether he has changed his position, he should spend the rest of his life in repentence of it...not given a voice on radio.

And more so, he should NEVER be called a conservative.

How do I know about his voting record? At that time, the Moral Majority published, by state, the voting records of all elected officials. The only person more liberal in his votes was Senator Tom Harkin.

BTW, those were pre-1995 numbers. Who sits on the ACU board now makes no difference.

I didn’t make the comparison.

My statement is that the ACU is not the group it pretends to be, and should not be used for a measure for conservatism.

If you want to believe the group that put Suhail Kahn on its board thanks to Grover Norquist, it is your priviledge.

You saying what constitutes the ACU now has anything to do with their archived ratings going back 16+ years ago? Gimme a break.

I know all about Frank Gaffney’s and David Horowitz’s problem with Norquist and I agree with them. I don’t know that that has much do to with the rest of the board’s rating congress on the various issues not germane to the muslim issue.

Can you offer an alternative ratings site in the mean time? I’m interested.

You like ACU, that’s fine. I have never trusted the place since the rise of Keene and Norquist in its ranks in the mid 90s.

You trust them all you want.

CAIR tried and tried and tried to get Lee Rodgers, but they never did. Lee was gone at contract time and I’m pretty sure it was only about money.

If you listen to Suss (Brian Sussman) in Lee’s time slot now, you’ll hear that he is equally against militant Islam and often has on former Muslims and moderate Muslims who denounce Shariah law and pretty much everything else Islam is trying to cram down our throats...

If you listen to Rodgers, you will hear his disdain for Farid Suleman. He blames Suleman personally for his being ousted. KSFO was a money-maker. Despite that, Suleman used the contract terms to first oust Melanie Morgan, and then Lee Rodgers.

In fact, Rodgers was let go before the end of his contract, and then he fought Suleman regarding the payment of the the remainder of his contract.

See these threads: KSFO's Lee Rodgers OUT; Brian Sussman In at SF talk station and Conservative host Lee Rodgers didn't retire...was fired...told to speak positively about Muslims.

Just announced on WCBM that Fred Grandy will NOT be on today. There are some legal issues involved, and they said he will be on to talk about him leaving but not today.

Silvie,

I heard Chris give you a shout out on his program yesterday.

Hahahahaha!

You call that a shout out? He said that he was “irked” at me!! LOL!!

He knows me well and he said that on-air because he knows I can take it.

He also knows that I can see through B.S.

It’s great to hear your name said on the radio, though. I was busty caulking a bath tub and it took be somewhat by surprise...

Yes, he seemed irked that you didn’t believe his assertion that the station wasn’t putting pressure on to tone down the Islam language. The thing is that Chris is absolutely vicious in his attacks on Islam. When he said he hasn’t felt any pressure and would likely say something on air if he had, I believed him.

Thank you for the information. I did NOT know about Suleman and I'm just beginning to realize the extent of Muslim infiltration into radio and TV way beyond the outside pressure I was well aware of.

I was concerned with many of the left wing interests way back when Geoff Metcalf and Jim Eason were taken off KSFO, replaced by Rush and Dr. Laura.

AT THAT TIME I considered Rush to be far more mainstream than our local people. I think it may have had something to do with his marriage to the lovely Marta as he's quite strong now and even makes jokes about the fact that HE does have a birth certificate.

Geoff came to a Silicon Valley NRA Members’ Council meeting and told us that his being replaced was absolutely a business decision regarding advertising attractions including national companies, but I always wondered if it had to do with how effective Geoff was on gun issues and what we later came to know and not love as the New World Order. Jim too.

Some good news I hope: http://www.radioink.com/article.asp?id=2113782&spid=24698 . Apparently Suleman is on his way out. Unfortunately I'm not finding a lot on Lew Dickey personally so I don't know if he's a good guy or a bad guy or just a business guy, but least he's not a muslim.

I think the Metcalf was let go back when KSFO was still a part of the ABC Radio network. A lot of things changed when that network was broken up. I always thought it was an attempt to end right-wing talk radio by ending the dominance of the largest distributor.
