Insider Reveals Salem Media Was Part of The Coordinated Gang-of-Eight Manipulation…

A few months ago we shared the entire back story of how the legislative gang-of-eight amnesty bill was structured and blocked at the last minute.  After that revealing information was disclosed, research also identified a hidden corporate agenda within Fox News to promote the Amnesty agenda.

Then last week, another story emerged within the New York Times showcasing how various conservative radio hosts were also lobbied, and recruited, to push a more favorable narrative for the Washington DC objectives.  All of the activity was kept from the consuming audience by the participants – all of them attempted to justify their willful blindness.

This week a Salem Communications insider steps forth (via email) to affirm all of the previous reports, and add details specific to the instructions from Salem Broadcasting and Salem Communications group:

In 2014 (sorry, cannot recall the date), Salem Radio hosted a conference call with Senator Marco Rubio to address the Gang of Eight legislation and “set the record straight.” All national and local talk hosts were urged to take part. I am one of their local hosts, and what I heard that day was troubling.

Moderated by Hugh Hewitt, it began with Senator Rubio offering a brief explanation of the measure and why it was so very necessary. Then Hewitt opened the call to questions. There were only a few, and they were exclusively from higher-profile, national Salem personalities, like Mike Gallagher, Katie Pavlich, and Mark Davis. No local host was permitted a question. Following the Q & A, Senator Rubio was cut loose, and that’s when things got weird.

After Rubio departed, Hewitt introduced Salem V.P. Tom Tradup, who began by saying, “Thanks, Hugh. Now, here’s how I would like our talkers to be talking about this…” I exited the call in disgust at that point and have no idea what followed.

The effort by the GOPe to co-opt the so-called “conservative media” is real, and it’s widespread. It also makes me gag.

      I stopped subscribing (I read a lot of websites through an RSS reader) to Twitchy in late June/early July last year. Because the anti-Trump articles were off the charts, which I thought was weird because their coverage of every other candidate was positive or at least neutral. And I wasn’t even a Trump supporter at the time, it just irked me on a level I couldn’t even explain at the time.

      It wasn’t until late fall/early winter I learned that Salem Media was all in the tank for the GOPe, then Twitchy’s extreme biases made sense.

      In other words, they boiled the frog too fast.

    I stopped going to Downhill after Guy Benson was clearly descending into raving lunacy as the first stages of Trump Derangement Syndrome manifested. Too bad too, I enjoyed the editorials by Bozell, Sowell, Barone, Victor Davis Hanson, and the occasional by Pat Buchanan. Buchanan excepted (he at least put up a quixotic candidacy), they all said the right things but could not translate them into action, and at some point that just becomes so much useless moaning. Then Trump comes along, ensuring action, and they go ballistic. Much as I don’t want it to be true, I’m coming around to Vox Day’s position that conservatives are losers who have failed to conserve anything, and conservatism will inevitably evaporate before nationalism.

    • This is causing me to step back and rethink whether there is ANY UPSIDE to using “Conservatism” as a political rallying theme.

      “Conservatism” seems like a loser’s mindset to lose less rapidly, like trying to keep sand from slipping away between your fingers. There is NOTHING PROACTIVE there to make things better.

      “Progressivism” (as a word, not a political ideology) sounds like a winner’s mindset to advance something, and who could argue against “progress”?

      Who has a better theme for what we stand for, that’s representative and hard to oppose?

      How about “USA-First Nationalism” to “Make America Great Again”, NOT “Progressive Globalism” that multiplies dependency from individual to state and national levels, subjugating our country to bleed our citizens of their earnings, their jobs and their liberty?

        I’m increasingly thinking there isn’t an upside. The acceptance of inevitable defeat is implicit in William F. Buckley’s oft-repeated description of the conservative as the man standing athwart history and yelling “Stop!” History, like the mind, does not stop. It cycles, it rhymes, it jerks and swooshes about, but it does not stop, and until Kingdom Come will not. If a conservative takes Buckley’s description to heart, then he has already accepted failure, and conservatism becomes an intellectual game of losing every battle, yet feeling good about oneself because at least one lost honorably. That is the sense I get from conservative intellectuals and writers. Conservative regulars like present company are practical brawlers who have no time for such academic mincing. Whether we want to fight for the name or adopt another is up to us.

        Rush Limbaugh is up for negotiating a new contract with Bain Capital right now.
        Jul 3, 2008 – Rush Limbaugh signed an eight-year contract for about $400 million, a big jump from his last Clear Channel deal.

        From WIKI:

        Clear Channel Communications. — In 2008 it was taken private by Bain Capital, LLC and Thomas H. Lee Partners through a leveraged buyout
        ” In 1998 it made its first move outside of the United States when it acquired the leading UK outdoor advertising company More Group plc, which was led by Roger Parry; Clear Channel went on to buy many other outdoor advertising, radio broadcasting, and live events companies around the world, which were then re-branded Clear Channel International. These included a 51% stake in Clear Media Ltd. in China.”

        FROM WIKI
        Who owns Clear Channel?
        July 2008 – Bain, together with Thomas H. Lee Partners, acquired Clear Channel Communications

        Bain Capital is a global investment firm. “Bain Capital was founded in 1984 by partners Mitt Romney, T. Coleman Andrews III, and Eric Kriss, Romney initially had the titles of president. He was also the sole shareholder of the firm. Early investors included members of elite Salvadoran families and other wealthy Latin Americans invested $9 million primarily through offshore companies registered in Panama.”

        I’d add that Mitt Romney’s partner in Bain Capital T. Coleman Andrews, III attempted to run for Lt. Gov of VA (but family issues caused him to drop out) and John Hager won and John Hager’s son married Jenna Bush daughter of George W. Bush. They’re all in bed together literally and figuratively.

      Although I disagree vehemently that Trump is a “Con man”, I will say that he has a valid point about the term “conservative” being co-opted by the establishment. All the candidates call themselves conservative, which means that they all must not be conservative at all since the word essentially has no meaning given the diverse definitions.

      In reality, given Trump’s wide level of support, conservative is as simple as core American values. It’s not ideological at all, yet the GOPe attempts to corrupt it with ideology.

    No surprise here. To watch how the GOPe has treated Trump to date is no surprise that all of these corrupt Anti-American con artists are hell bent on eliminating the Middle class. This election isn’t really about Trump. It’s about our survival, the Middle class who built this country with blood, guts and determination.

    Trump has risen as our mouthpiece. Just watching him expose the corruption and watching the Never Trump movement being endorsed by so many of the Establishment hacks is enough to make you sick. These open border fools have changed the culture of this country. Two Cubans are still in the race, what a joke!

    Fox, Rush, Levin, Beck, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, Huffington Post, Brokaw, Hollywood, Billionaires, Salem, etc. are all working to stifle the middle class to enhance their own positions. All of these hacks that are in their 60’s and above could give two shits about the average American. They only care about increasing their own wealth and enjoying their perks until they finally die in some hotel room with a massive coronary. The upstarts in their 30’s affiliated with the above filth
    are too young and stupid to understand what our Constitutional Republic was built on.

    The Elite were shocked by Trump. Bushy couldn’t cut the “low energy” attacks from the beginning.
    Perry, Christie, Paul, Horse face, Pataki and all the other losers were crushed one by one. Now, we are left with Little Marco, Lyin Ted and Ohio Kasich. None of the three who could beat Hillary. So the battle to crush Trump continues. A Hillary Presidency is looking better each day to the thugs above.

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

    I was in Hotair when it led the fight against the Gang of 8 bill. When Salem bought Hotair, a commenter stated he had heard that Hotair might be used to host a Presidential debate. Now no one just ‘hears’ something like that. When I saw that comment, I smell a rat. Hotair was quickly turned into a GOPe booster site. However, the readers with passwords didnt get with the program and the moderators doubled down against the readers

    You think the GOP just plucked little ole Salem out of a basket because it heard it was a ‘leading conservative voice’ and let it help run the presidential debates? That is a big bucks, big shot decision

    I decided the purchase of the site was an election strategy. They took over conservative sites to control them for the election. They needed high traffic sites to get conservative creds. Their problem is the traffic was real conservatives, who would not obey. If they started banning participants, the word would get out and the site would no longer be a ‘leading conservative site’. But as the primaries loomed the handlers cut their losses and crushed Hotair.

    They are trying to control the message, same way the RINOs set up bogus tea party groups so their stooges could speak for tea party.

    Plan A flopped so the new plan is banning people at various sites. Those voices will be replaced with voices speaking the GOPe message. Meanwhile, people who don’t tote the party line will think they are a minority because millions of comments seem to support the GOPe.

    This is SO sick!

    Trump should NOT do any more debates. The strategy is to destroy him.

      And pass up all the opportunities for new material for the next volumes of “Can’t Stump the Trump” and SuperDeluxe? No way.

      In all seriousness, Trump isn’t being hurt by these debates; he’s using them to appear presidential and defend himself from smears that would otherwise go unanswered. It’s better to go in, absorb some punches, and punch back rather than sit out the fight just to make worried supporters feel a bit better about their champ.

        He’s really in a no-win situation with the debates. If he is there, he gets attacked all night. If he isn’t there, he gets attacked all night, lied about, and is not there to respond, and is called a “coward” for skipping it, so his polls drop. Since he has very little TV advertising, the debates are really the only opportunity many people will have to see him, so it is better for him to attend. But each debate is also an opportunity to screw up, like he did last time with the “hands” bit and his apparent change on immigration. Overall, it’s better that he attend, but he has to perform better.

      I’ve never heard or read any of the “conservatives” object to immigration, only illegal immigration. Mark Levin even says he wants more immigration, as if over one million legal immigrants per year plus up to a million illegals per year isn’t enough. Never does anyone consider, “When do we stop it? How many people is enough?” We aren’t acquiring any more land. Each additional person means more crowding, traffic, pollution, strain on resources, drain on the treasury, less open space, less wildlife, less farmland, lower overall quality of life. I don’t want the US to have the population of China or India. We were a far better country with half the number of people we have today.

        Hey, guess who just came out in favor of my position? Donald Trump:

        http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/03/07/3250381/

        “Record rates of immigration have produced lower wages and higher unemployment for U.S. workers. Pew polling shows 83 percent of all voters — Democrats, Republicans and Independents — think immigration should be frozen or reduced,” Trump stated in a campaign press release on Monday evening.

        “The biggest beneficiaries of allowing fewer foreign workers into our country would be minority workers, including all immigrants now living here, who are competing for jobs, benefits and community resources against record waves of foreign workers. Limiting job competition would reopen pathways to middle-class stability and shrink welfare rolls. In addition, it would relieve overcrowding in our schools and hospitals that afflict our poorest communities. Yet, Senators Cruz and Rubio have led the charge for even higher immigration rates — a policy supported by only 7 percent of the Republican electorate. When I am President we will listen to the people — not the special interests — and get immigration numbers under control, as the voters have demanded.”

    All the pundits mentioned as Salem Sellouts don’t really surprise me much and never impressed me much, except Michelle Malkin, who I thought had sold some of her former media enterprises to Salem and moved on to her independent project. I’m not sure (at least not yet) it’s appropriate to lump her in with this group. I check her blog periodically and don’t recall any recent anti-Trump bias, nor a pro-GOPe bias.

    As I recall, MM was staunchly anti-amnesty/gang of 8 back in the day–did she coin the term “shamnesty?” Her intelligence, dogged research for the truth, and courage in the face of exceptionally ugly prognazi attacks would be sad to lose. I hope she is not one of the traitors and that she will join with Trump and those of us who are trying to get the truth out to the nation and the world.

  44. Hugh Hewitt, M.Malkin, and E.Erickson are and have been GOPe….Just read a piece though, over at Debbieschlussel.com that adds more to my depression re R.Limbaugh:

    —“Over the weekend, the New York Times published a story that everyone thought was a bombshell, but it was actually old news: that Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and other “conservatives” met with Marco Rubio and later pimped his immigration amnesty bill. Limbaugh is now claiming he never did, but news reports and transcripts of his show reveal otherwise. And he’s even inaccurately describing his Rubio-cheerleading from as recently as three weeks ago. I know because I reported a lot on this at the time and was largely dissed for not buying into the Rubio hype and BS. Below are the details and the quotes to prove it.

    All of this is probably academic because, as I’ve been saying since at least August (and maybe, July) Donald Trump will be the GOP Prez Nominee. He will win big tonight as Super Tuesday results come in, but you never know; despite all of their fighting like a bad divorce, Trump could pick Marco Kinky Boots Rubio Boobio Schmoobio to be his Veep. He probably won’t, but stranger things have happened. Reagan and Bush hated each other and Reagan went with Bush for VP.

    So, the record must be set straight. It must also be set straight because Rush Limbaugh is engaging in a lot of revisionist history about what actually happened and what he actually said. He, Mark Levin, and Sean Hannity all bought into Rubio’s Senate Gangbang of Eight amnesty bill pimpitude. Now, he claims he didn’t. Now, Limbaugh claims he never promoted the Gang of Eight immigration bill and was simply being polite to Rubio. Um, no. Not even close. And this is important because it shows how much Limbaugh thinks he can put one (or more than one) over on his listeners and get away with it.

    Back in January 2013, I was very angry when I heard Limbaugh cheerleading Rubio. I wrote about it, and I quoted the Wall Street Journal quoting Limbaugh’s show:

    It’s official: Marco Rubio and his staff told today’s Wall Street Journal that Rubio’s role–-as I told you all along–-is not to ensure that immigration amnesty also includes meaningless border security measures. It’s to pimp the right on amnesty. And his “working girls,” Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, and others, were played like violins, this week. And, again, while Rush tried to backpedal yesterday, on Tuesday he told listeners after the Rubio interview, “Maybe we should do this.” He can’t claim he never said that (though he’s tried). It’s on the recordings and in the transcripts on his site. . . .

    [As I noted, the Wall Street Journal quoted Limbaugh from his show:]

    After their 10-minute talk on his show, Mr. Limbaugh gushed to his listeners that he had gone from “adamantly against” the Senate proposal to thinking, “maybe we should do this.”

    And it gets worse. As I noted on January 30th on this site, on his January 29th show–the one in which he pimped us on Rubio and his amnesty bill–Limbaugh engaged in what I called the “Snoop Dogg Defense” of Rubio and his amnesty bill, saying this to Rubio about it:

    What you are doing is admirable and noteworthy. You are recognizing reality.”—–

    So their worldview is that America be destroyed along with the American people (they must think they will be spared, or why else go along?) However, they are just useful idiots in this diabolical, degenerate plan. They won’t be spared for long. They’re so smug and condescending and SUCH FOOLS.

    I never understood the big “globalist” picture. Was it always just about $$$? How did they think we wouldn’t see through that?

    Today I read this article at the Belmont Club about a book that explained that the elites thought that our National State would transform into global Market States, and that while one provided material comforts, the Market State would provide greater “opportunities” for it’s citizens.

    Now I understand the lie they told themselves and each other, that they were doing something good for the citizens.

    “In retrospect the idea that an increasingly internationalized political elite would automatically remain faithful agents of their own populations should have rung alarm bells. Although much has been made of the security violations of Hillary Clinton’s private email system, its true value is as a record of how the Clinton’s constituency grew beyond the borders of America. It is not for nothing that the Clinton Foundation is also known as the Clinton Global Initiative. It has received money from 20 foreign governments.

    “A world where Angela Merkel feels compelled to accept millions of migrants for Europe even to the detriment of Germany and where president Obama feels he can sign major international treaties with Iran without reference to Congress is an unstable world locked in a game that is no longer transparent. Who do politicians work for? It creates a world of dubious loyalties and unpredictable coalitions.

    “If the obvious conflict of interest has been ignored by the politicians, it has not been lost on the voters. Many plainly sense what economists call an principal-agent problem, which may be the source of the current voter revolt. ”

      That sounds close to reality. Globalists are not all Snidely Whiplashes twirling their mustaches and cackling about the plebs in smoky backrooms. At some level, most people have to feel that what they’re doing is for a good cause, whether for the good of their families, their employees, or some generalized concept of “humanity.” Money is part of it, but another has to be the kick one gets out of the feeling that he’s doing right by his kids, company, and country. I’d wager many of the globalists we mock, fear, and hate on this site are doing the wrong things for the right reasons. They’re still wrong and must be opposed, but at the end of the day they aren’t comic book villains, just fallen, striving human beings like ourselves.

    I was on Hotair when it led the fight against the Gang of 8 bill. When Salem bought HA, a reader commented he heard that HA might be used to host a Presidential debate. Now no one just hears something like that. I smelled a rat.

    A major political party doesnt suddenly annoint a brand new media venue to run half their primary debates. This had to be an election strategy to control the message same way as bogus tea party groups were formed to stomp down the tea party message.

    GOP Senators had complaints from tea party groups about the IRS foot dragging before the last election- but the GOP sat on those complaints unil the election was over. No accident the problem is still not fixed

    Salem was buying up conservative venues and pushing them GOPe but they couldnt control the conversation. If they banned the participants, the word would get out, and HA would lose the creds they spent so much to buy. Plan A failed. Plan B – kick out the old crowd

    A new strategy all over seems to be banning participants who don’t fit the message. I got banned at Breitbart after a handful of comments. Breitbart, as TreeHouse documented, is owned by a Cruz donor.
    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2015/11/22/why-breitbart-website-is-fundraising-for-ted-cruz/

    WAPO 01-27-16:
    “Along with Bannon and Larry Solov, Breitbart’s business partner and lifelong friend, Breitbart began raising money for a bigger, better Breitbart News Network.

    Solov and Bannon won’t say where the money came from (nor discuss any element of the privately held site’s finances), but media accounts have repeatedly identified Robert Mercer, a little-known hedge fund manager and billionaire, as one of Breitbart’s major financial backers. Mercer has been the leading donor to the super PAC behind Ted Cruz’s campaign. (Before its devotion to Trump, Breitbart was very much in the corner of Cruz, with Politico going as far as calling the site Cruz’s “media lifeline” before the Trump surge.)

    Just five days after relaunching his consolidated site in March 2012, Breitbart was walking in Brentwood when he collapsed”

    In January Breitbart was giving good copy to both Trump and Cruz. However, it is ramping down on Trump now. And I got banned

    This is how you change the narrative. Start out giving Trump a voice. Then slowly ad negatives
