Meanwhile in Minnesota

February 4, 2009

Republican Norm Coleman won a court case in the razor thin margin election there between him and democrat Al Franken (of the failed leftist Err America radio experiment) for the state’s senate race.

Nearly 5,000 rejected absentee ballots are now going to be counted. As you remember, getting absentee ballots, in particular, the absentee ballots of men and women serving in the US Military, thrown out on legal technicalities was a cornerstone of Algore’s attempt to steal the Florida election back in 2000.

Coleman was attempting to get 11,000 rejected absentee ballots counted. Franken’s attorneys fought to have nearly all the ballots thrown out.

No need to raise taxes…

May 30, 2008

…just get liberals to actually pay their taxes! Joining the ranks of liberal who callf for raising your taxes and don’t pay their own taxes, (such as democrat Senate candidate Al Franken) is uber-liberal far left extremist so-called “journalist” Keith “Bathtub Boy” Olbermann. Details at Olbermann Watch.

New York State has issued a tax warrant against Keith Olbermann for failure to pay taxes on his humbly named personal corporation, Olbermann Broadcasting Empire, Inc. Olbermann is listed in legal records as the President of Olbermann Broadcasting Empire, Inc.

A call to the Albany County Clerk’s Office in upstate New York confirmed that the warrant is still outstanding and that Olbermann has still failed to pay his back taxes. State records show that Olbermann’s company failed to pay $2,269.50 in state taxes. A judgement was entered against Olbermann last summer (Docket Date: 8/21/2007), just weeks before Olbermann closed on a a luxurious $4.2 mm condo at Trump Palace, at 200 East 69th Street.

Air America in the News again.

May 29, 2008

Not for another station dropping the hard far left extremist liberal Err America feed, which is why they are typically in the news.

This goes back to their looting of Bronx charity to ease their cash flow problems.
According to the NY Post:

Evan Montvel-Cohen was picked up by border-patrol officers at Guam International Airport on an outstanding warrant from Hawaii. He had been indicted there last month for money laundering and the theft of more than $60,000 from a Honolulu landscaping firm, prosecutors said.

“We at DOI are not surprised to hear that Mr. Montvel-Cohen was arrested on theft and money-laundering charges,” said Rose Gill Hearn, commissioner of the city’s Department of Investigation, which probed the looting of the Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club in Co-op City.

It was Montvel-Cohen who, as development director for Gloria Wise, convinced other club officials in 2003 and 2004 to give $875,000 of taxpayer money to the radio network where he was a top executive and co-founder.

He also received loans from the club of more than $45,000 that were never repaid.

Franken’s Tax problems

April 28, 2008

democrat Al Franken, former SNL writer and performer, is running for the US Senate on the typical democrat platform of more taxes on top of higher taxes.

However, it seems he has trouble paying his taxes.

On Friday, Franken’s campaign manager, Andy Barr, declined to say whether Franken had paid taxes on earnings in California between 2003 and 2007. He said Franken’s accountant is working with California officials to sort things out.

The latest Republican charge that Franken’s taxes there have gone unpaid comes in the wake of earlier disclosures that Franken failed to pay workers’ compensation and disability premiums in New York and botched the dissolution of his California corporation. Since then, Franken has paid more than $25,000 in fines to New York and still owes more than $4,700 in corporate taxes and fines to California.

Note to democrats, instead of raising taxes on everyone, how about you get your rich members to pay their ‘fair share’ first.


UPDATE
: More details at Hot Air.

Al Franken’s corporation got decertified by California for failing to pay its taxes. Since Al Franken served as the COO and apparently the CEO of the corporation, he had the responsibility for keeping up with the taxes and filing requirements in California. Despite whether the information came out from Republican research — or as Lady Logician notes, an independent new-media researcher who formerly worked within the state GOP — it doesn’t change the fact that Franken is an apparent tax dodger.

The far left plays the race card…

December 17, 2007

Not surprising in itself, but this time it’s the far hard left left extremist talk radio demagogue Randi Rhodes slamming Opra for using “black preacher” voice during an event on behalf of Barak Obama. How dare she support anyone but the “anointed” HRC!

Another Station dumps Err America

November 9, 2007

This time it’s San Diego’s KLSD 1360 AM. According to BoreAmerica, the new, and unlike Err America, profitable, format will be XTRA Sports.

Moonbats dial it up to 11…

October 31, 2007

Err America’s Randi Rhodes was apparently sober enough to walk into the studio without out falling down and hurting herself when put forth the far hard extremist left fantasy that Blackwater employees may have set the California wildfires.

This once again raises the question of just which “reality” they are based in. It certainly isn’t the one rational adults inhabit.

No wonder stations are dropping their feed…

September 21, 2007

“Air America” is spreading hate speech in the form of Troofer moonbat rantings.
BoreAmerica has the story:

Air America Radio’s new “Clout” program – hosted by nobody Richard Greene, located at airamerica.com/clout, and heard late evenings in cow pastures throughout Karnes, TX and elsewhere – apparently will feature the continuing presence of “Truthers”, sources say. Previously, ex-AARer, ex-cutie, and troubled “liberal” Janeane Garofalo seemed to claim that 9/11 was an inside job. And, Randi Rhodes hinted at LIHOP. Ex-AARer and joke Senatorial candidate Al Franken pledged to “take a look” at a Truther video. Jerry Springer could not be reached for comment.

Another Air America stations shuts down.

September 5, 2007

Memphis’ WSMB 680 AM is dropping the feed for a profitable format.
In this case, it’s Fox Sports Radio.

Err America vs. the First Amendment

August 13, 2007

I was driving a rental car the other day with Satellite Radio. So I took the opportunity to listen to Err America. I haven’t been able to listen to that far left extremist train wreck since they were pulled from the Boston area AM station that carried them so they could broadcast a profitable format.

There were two topics the host hit on. One, goods made in China are not made to US Health Standards. This has been obvious to anyone paying attention for years, but the loopy left is just catching on.

The second topic was Err America’s support for that attack on the First Amendment known as the so called “Fairness Doctrine.” In case you haven’t heard of it, it is federal regulation of what can and can not be said, about politics, on privately owned AM radio stations. It would have the federal government creating a law that regulates what kind political speech can be made on public airwaves, by privately owned radio stations. A bit of history here, AM radio was nearly put out of business by FM. The medium was saved by Talk Radio, in particular conservative Talk Radio. The liberal MSM had a strong lock on print and television, there was no FM talk to speak of, but AM airtime was available at a low cost compared to FM, print or TV. Conservative Talk Radio has been successful because it is popular. A lot of people want to listen to it. That results in advertisers spending money. There have been attempts at left wing talk radio on the AM bandwidth, but it has failed almost every time. Err America couldn’t even make a profit in the oh so Blue Commonwealth of Massachusetts!

Err America supports to attack on the First Amendment for several reasons. First off, they do not own any actual radio stations. They just try to sell content to the people who invested in the capital of broadcast stations and federal licenses. This attack on the First Amendment wouldn’t force Err America to broadcast any opposing views, it only effects the people who actually own the stations. It would force the owners to drop profitable Conservative Talk Radio air time in order to broadcast unprofitable far left extremist programming, which is what Err America produces. They view this as a double win for them. It would force profitable programming that they don’t agree with off the air and give them “free” access to markets they couldn’t compete in under the open (and Fair) market. If the loss of profitable programming drove the station bankrupt, this would still be a win for Err America, since they would have silenced their political foes.

Such behavior from liberals is appalling. It is entirely expected from so called “progressives”, who are actually Communists who don’t want to be admit they are Communists.
