Michael Savage rebroadcasts NewsMax extremist Ken Timmerman's warning on Iran

With respect to my previous post on Michael Savage, the same friend who informed me previously about the activities on Savage's radio program has just now informed me that Michael Savage decided to rebroadcast Ken Timmerman's hysterical warnings that Iran will nuke America - if they get nukes.


First off, NewsMax is a neocon-sympathetic 'news' website that makes FoxNews look like liberals. And secondly, Kenneth Timmerman evidently has an agenda - come on, "Foundation for Democracy in Iran"? That sounds an awful lot like the neocon 'thinktank' Foundation for Defense of Democracies. This guy has it out for Iran, and based on the title of one of his books listed there on Wiki, he's got it out for Islam too. This guy would appear to be a classic card-carrying neocon.

More from Wiki:

He has been accused of stoking conflict with Iran (a charge which his supporters deny), by misrepresenting the threat of an Iranian nuclear weapons program, as well as denouncing the National Intelligence Estimate which clearly states that Iran had ended a project to design nuclear warheads some years ago, although they increased their efforts on the more important parts of their program for building nuclear weapons. Timmerman denounced the misleading way in which the unclassified summary of the report described the report's conclusions.

Really now? So given all that, why should we trust him to tell us - in contravention of what our own CIA is telling us - that Iran is a grave threat to the continental United States? What do Gates and Mullen think about the 'Iran threat'?

Whom should we believe?

And the whole point being is this: beware of those who are trying to ram the 'Iran threat' down our throat. There is one nation that will do and say anything to get us to attack Iran. And evidently, Michael Savage is becoming one of their number one shills.

Michael Savage - Still a Shill for Israel

I've had some suspicions over the years as to if Michael Savage uses his radio program to shill for Israel. Something that happened last night has confirmed these suspicions once again: I was at a friend's house who was listening to Savage's program - and I happened to catch Savage turning over the airwaves/citing Aaron Klein in Jerusalem.

Aaron Klein, in my opinion, is himself a suspicious character. He writes for World Net Daily, and his stories are also printed by Ynet News, an Israeli news service. But, I've seen many stories over the past few years that were penned by Klein that appear to be factually dubious - and I'm not the only one. In an article from March of this year, The Nation has a small write up on Klein (paragraph 11).

It's also worth noting that World Net Daily, owned by Arab Christian Zionist Joseph Farah, is described as 'disreputable' in the aforementioned article. While I largely agree with that assessment, WND's only saving grace is the fact that they host Pat Buchanan's Creator's Syndicate columns - a political commentator with whom I am in much agreement on all matters of foreign policy.

That said, that Savage would use Klein as a reliable source for information is a little strange. And the same friend that had Savage's radio program on, informed me that Savage recently had someone on the program alleging that Iran was test firing missiles from ships. This commentator was evidently asserting that these missiles pose a threat to the continental US. Come again? Ridiculous. In fact, it sounds to me like Savage is using his radio program to stir up fears in Americans over the 'Iranian threat'. Iran has not threatened the US in the absence of any threats we've made to them. And let us not forget who is pulling the strings behind this belligerence.

Not so long ago, Savage was airing on his program a former AIPAC official who was disparaging Jimmy Carter for alleged bias toward Nazis, going so far as to liken him to Hitler. If I had any doubts then as to if Michael Wiener Savage has a passionate attachment to Israel, I don't now.

Savage listeners: Beware. You are being propagandized. Israel wants us to attack Iran. And its minions in the US, including Savage, are going to make sure that the sheep toe the line.
