The Jimmy Z Show still makes crazy people - um - crazy
My show intimidates people who follow Obama

The Jimmy Z Show has been drawing listeners away from Blog Talk Radio.
Someone got upset.

First of all, Blog Talk Radio did not end my association with them -- I ended my association with Blog Talk Radio -- for two very good reasons. These are: First, the management. Blog Talk Radio is operated by far-left ideologues who do not understand anything about good radio, and would rather put limits on the best of the best than to allow the single most creative radio show (mine!) to bloom.

Second -- and probably more importantly: The sound at Blog Talk Radio is horrible. The equipment I use is top flight. I have one of the finest mics available and for that matter, one of the best voices in radio, and neither was up to the challenge of working with the system at Blog Talk Radio.

Before we finish with Blog Talk Radio, let us take a minute to remind you that it was our show, The American Truth Warriors Show at Blog Talk Radio that exposed the handle fraud in the first place, and we moved to prove conclusively that you and your friends faked 'Troops handles' (iraq_troops was one, afghan_troops was another) to gain attention for your shows on Blog Talk Radio -- shows where you continued to copy our bits, innovations and show concepts.

My program, like Mr.
Limbaugh's, is about
what I think. It is about
what I care about.

It was myself & my partner, with Debra JM Smith and Matt Buff who pissed you off something awful when we gathered to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth. We exposed the handles, and within an hour the fraud troops names were replaced. I was notified by the Blog Talk Radio system and found out that the names had changed. When that was reported in our next investigation on the show, the renamed fake accounts disappeared entirely.

All of this chicanery on your part was done with the knowledge of Blog Talk Radio for publicity. It was said by yourself and many others that there were hundreds of troops gathered with lap tops listening for hours and hours at a time to various Blog Talk Radio shows. We proved that was not happening. We had a guest on our show who works daily with the troops in the middle east and she told our listeners that this was -- in fact -- not happening.

You act as if The Jimmy Z Show needs callers to become more complete or gather more listeners. I assure you this is not the case. Like Rush Limbaugh, I don't have to take callers to make the show compelling.

My program, like Mr. Limbaugh's, is about what I think. It's about what I care about. While I do look forward to the inclusion of some listeners calling in (and that is going to happen very soon! And you know that; you and I both know you are listening to the latest Jimmy Z Shows), its not as if there is only MY voice on every show.

Also, let me remind you that it was you and your hoodlum friends in a chat room who once said of me 'you are like a cross between Rush Limbaugh and Howard Stern.' And that was because of what I was typing! I've never received a bigger compliment and I will never forget it.

Blog Talk Radio would have
been smart to work with me,
but I literally thank God for
moving me away from their
limitations, poor character
and lousy sound.

The Jimmy Z Show has had some of the best interviews on radio anywhere. And because I'm not limited by time constraints on commercial radio, the interviews go into greater depth and detail than you will find elsewhere on radio OR television. Add to that the regular commentary by my former partner -- colorful political commentary comparable to Dick Morris or Scott Rasmussen -- and all the other guests, and you have a variety of opinion on talk radio second to none.

The Jimmy Z Show is also heard on US Web Talk Radio and will debut on other internet radio websites this coming week. When you say 'no one can handle' The Jimmy Z Show, I have no idea on earth what you mean! The show has been consistent and grown exponentially. I suppose that's why you are upset, and I understand.

Now as to your empty threats, you and I both know you're full of baloney -- hooey, as I like to say. There was no such occurrence. You and I both know that. While you can fool all of the liberals all of the time, you cannot threaten Jimmy Z any of the time, because I cannot be fooled -- especially considering that this is my life you're talking about. It's not like I wake up some mornings and think, 'hey, maybe that did happen after all!'

No, your lies get nowhere with me. Sorry to say, you're wasting your time. You would be funny if you weren't so awfully sad.

Blog Talk Radio would have been smart to work with me, but I literally thank God for moving me away from their limitations, poor character and lousy sound. I now have a program that is tight and professional, with sound on par with FM radio. The future is bright and The Jimmy Z Show can only get better. Hard to believe, I know, but improvement is one thing I always strive for.

I thank you for this opportunity to outline the advantages of doing my show my way on my own site. I think it is about a month premature, and I'll probably do some kind of 'state of the show' bit on the show after the first of the year. You spoke of anniversaries: The Jimmy Z Show will have it's first year anniversary on January 17th.

I trust you'll be listening.
Best regards,

These are the Blue Dog Coalition members who voted for the Pelosi bill. They voted for, among other things, for the federal government to FORCE Americans to buy health care insurance, or to pay a fine, or even to go to jail for up to five years.

Make them suffer with constant harassment in the form of protests, phone call, faxes and personal visits. DO NOT LET UP. They're going home for the Thanksgiving break. They need to know that they will NEVER be re-elected.

BE SURE to listen to The Jimmy Z Show, ON DEMAND Monday thru Friday!
All 200+ shows since January 17, 2009 are posted and ready

Doug Hoffman's campaign needs you to join the fight
This battle is far from over


(I am delighted to pass this along from inside the campaign. Please do what you can! --Jz)

'As many of you know, I have been working on Doug Hoffman's outreach campaign. And as most know by now, it's a neck and neck race with 3rd Party Conservative Doug Hoffman and a typical Obama Democrat now that the liberal 'Republican' Scozzafava suspended her campaign yesterday. The time has come to throw down the gauntlet for the survival of the Republican Party and lure it back to its core beliefs. The election is TUESDAY.

"This is truly a time to take a stand. This campaign may be a local upstate NY 23rd Congressional District election, but it WILL ABSOLUTELY have national ramifications in setting the tenor for the ever so important 2010 elections.

"Because Scozzafava suspended her campaign does not make Doug a shoe-in by any means. Many of her supporters may defect to the Democrat, with whom her positions were far more aligned.

"If you can donate a few bucks, great; click below. If not, please just forward on to those who you think may be able to.

"Below are a few nuggets from Sean, Newt, Doug's op ed in the NY Post, the oh so nasty Frank Rich today in the NYT, a piece on the big money the Dems are spending (including BO attending a recent NYC fund raiser to aid their cause.)


“I’ve got to tell you, this vote is why I don’t want to be a republican,” fumed Sean, “I want no part of the Olympia Snow’s or Specter’s who just aren’t standing on conservative principles.” Sean Hannity

There's a chance that Scozzafava's remaining supporters were independents or liberal Republicans who didn't necessarily want a Democrat in Congress or who couldn't bring themselves to support someone as conservative as Hoffman. They may break heavily for Owens. Hopefully we'll get another poll or two before the voting starts on Tuesday. Realpolitics 10.31.09

He said Mr. Hoffman's "rise is a result of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Fox News, the Club for Growth, Gov. [Sarah] Palin and [Minnesota Gov. Tim] Pawlenty and former House Majority Leader Dick Armey and virtually the entire national conservative movement joining with Mike Long, whose Conservative Party, a very established organization, which won its first big race 39 years ago. This was not an isolated amateur; this is an entire movement." Mr. Gingrich said. 11.1.09

Acceptance of liberals and moderates has
tarnished the GOP
No more liberal RINOs

'Republicans In Name Only' have got to go

The thread began with a simple post -- and no link to a story attached -- by 'Simon':

"Scozzafava drops out of the race. What say you, Newt?"

A big story this weekend to be sure. I love reading the comments (most of them smart and very astute). Then, scrolling down through the well over 30 comments, I came upon a few of Robert's posts within the thread on Facebook (There were of course other posts by other participants who prompted more comments by Robert):

"So, let's say Hoffman loses. What will each of YOU on this thread have to say?"

"I think the GOP has to become more inclusive because we generally don't have enough self-identified Republicans to win elections and we have to get past the litmus tests activists like to give."

"I want to WIN elections!"

"Therer [sic] aren't enough conservatives to win most elections on there own. Sorry, but the latest Gallop poll shows 40% identify themselves as conservatives. You HAVE to get independents and middle of the road to ally to win." [By the way Robert: That 40% is the single LARGEST self-identified political group in the country by far - and the opposing left is a scant 5%. Secondly, the way you get independents and moderates to vote for GOP candidates is by delivering STRONG CONSERVATIVES].

"and don't forget that here in Texas, our numbers are so big that the rest of the nation is probably a lot smaller in number..especially in large metro areas that determine elections nationally."

"I think we need to support the REPUBLICAN that can win. You can't compare upstate NY to Virginia. It's very liberal up there and the Republican we are replacing would be considered a RINO in many people's eyes. The only vote that matters is for Speaker of the House. Scazzo committed a Boehner vote. You won't get that from the Dem."

We have to vote for conservatives
so conservatives can beat down their
agenda in the House and the Senate

Obviously, this political 'philosophy' that Robert is talking about is the one that got us where we are now. We have been playing it Robert's way for a couple of decades now. Hell, here in CA we've been playing patticake with the liberals by propping up liberal RINOs (Arnold, anyone?) and what have we achieved? Nada.

So it pissed me off enough to forgo my usual pleasant and professional demeanor on Facebook and let Robert have it. If you agree with me, you're going to love this. If you don't agree with me, too freakin' bad:

@Robert: Seriously, have you been paying attention to what is going on in our country? I get so damned sick of being told that "we need to be accepting of liberal republicans, and we need to vote for republicans no matter what their political leanings. Right, middle, moderate or left; it doesn't matter. Just vote Republican."

Robert, that philosophy of yours is HOW WE GOT HERE. This bone-headed philosophy got us Arlen Specter and John McCain, and for that matter, your political philosophy got us Barack Obama in the White House for God's sake!

ENOUGH! No more voting for Republicans who do not espouse conservative principles, both political and social.


I'll even go one step further: You, Robert, are part of the problem. You either can't see the truth, or you're denying the truth on purpose. Our opposition is steadfast in their far left pursuit of this country.

Have you ever known of a football team that could do battle with an aggressive and successful team's strong offense by using a weak, ineffective and nansy-pansy 'prevent defense?' No, of course not.

We cannot fight liberals in Congress with moderates and liberals. That makes no freakin' sense whatsoever. That's like sending in gang bangers to bust up gang warfare in Los Angeles. Ridiculous.

No sir Robert, the ONLY way to do battle with liberals is to be staunchly right wing and conservative. We have to vote for conservatives so conservatives can beat down their agenda in the House and the Senate.

Let me remind you of one more important piece of information: It was YOUR PHILOSOPHY that lead to the House approval of Cap & Trade early this year. Remember that, Robert? 8 Republicans voted for that bill in the House. EIGHT REPUBLICANS THAT YOUR PHILOSOPHY PUTS IN OFFICE. Without those 8 votes, Cap & Tax would not have passed.

So in conclusion I say take your moderate, accepting and tolerant political philosophy and shove it up your ass. I realize this post has been mighty aggressive, but seriously - with only 12 months to go until the 2010 midterms, we don't have time to fiddle around with you and your ilk, or try to convince you how wrong you are.

JUST GET OUT OF OUR WAY. We have a lot work to do.
No offense,

ADDENDUM: 'Robert' responds:

Jimmy, you aren't good at math are you! With only 23% self-identified Republicans in our country, narrowing the net is a sure-way to DEFEAT every time.

The Democrats outsmarted Republicans by opening THEIR tent and accepting LESS THAN PERFECT LIBERALS in the Blue Dog coalition to defeat Republicans. Do you think Barbara Streisand was thrilled at the prospect of all those other-than-true-Liberal Democrats???

Don't blame McCain for the loss against Obama. The Dems put up a charismatic candidate while the TRUE Conservatives were debating whether Mormanism was compatible with their political views.

Perhaps if Conservatives (Huckabee, Thompson, Ron Paul, etc.) had done what Dede did, and dropped out when it was clear that McCain would walk in, we wouldn't have had this outcome. So, perhaps it's the fault of those so stuck in their thinking they can not be strategic. Let's put blame where blame belongs...shall we?

I actually think Romney, a better candidate, would have had his head put on a silver platter with a worse outcome than McCain. It was Obama's time. GET OVER IT. McCain was leading in the polls, at times.

If anyone, I blame President Bush who created a crisis when supposedly the world was going to end without $787B of TARP.

Look at what the Dem's did..they EXPANDED their tent with Blue Dogs, Pelosi got elected and she is getting her way. We need to emulate this in parts of the country that only a liberal Republican can get elected. Sorry, the math is simple.

And, it's time to get the Social Conservatives to realize that THEY repel many independent voters who would like to vote Republican. Keep your high morale values to yourself and keep limited government, LIMITED and out of people's personal lives.

Jimmy Z continues:

@Robert: I only post truth:

McCain is the reason Obama is in office. When we run people like McCain for president, we lose. McCain is nothing but a foil to conservatism. His wishy washy brand of GOP-ism is not only unproductive, but the political version of "prevent defense."

Ron Paul is not a conservative -- he's a libertarian. No comparison. Fred Thompson could have won, but didn't have the energy he needed to campaign hard and he did back out. Mike Huckabee should have pressed harder for sure, because he could have beaten McCain and certainly could have beaten Obama, because Huck's message for this country is certainly more Constitutional.

Romney, a pro homosexual, pro government health care RINO is NOT the guy. Romney is the problem, just like all the other GOP'ers who compromise core conservative principles in an effort to "attract liberals". McCain only gained ground in the polls when he appeared to be taking a stand and moved to the right. When he wimped out again and moved back to the left, he lost ground in the polls. I remember these moments clearly.

We do not need to attract liberals - we need to attract independents. Liberals will always vote democrat. Democrat-lite will never attract liberals voters.

'Republicans In Name Only' gave this election to Obama - they held the door open for him. Bush made it worse with the first stimulus plan, true, but McCain sealed the deal when he decided to cease his campaign and go to Washington and work on the bill. What did Obama do? Laugh and keep going. McCain is a left leaning tool and cut his own throat.

Those 'blue dogs' got elected by running like Obama did - more conservatively than they are. If you think 'blue dog' democrats really are less liberal, you're fooling yourself. They espoused what they did to get votes in conservative areas. They hesitate to vote for ObamaCare, not because they don't want to vote for it, but because they know they'll be sent out to pasture in the next election if they vote for it.

Pelosi got elected because she's in one of the most insanely liberal districts in the insanely liberal northern half of California. She has nothing to do with a lack of moderate republicans.

I assume from your last paragraph you are pro abortion and pro homosexual marriage. If this is true, and you despise conservative social views, I suggest you go where you belong and become a democrat. Republicans -- CONSERVATIVE Republicans -- stand for moral principles and moral justice, Godly principles, as much as politically conservative values. Without God, and our faith in God, this nation is done for. A revival is needed as much as turning back to the political right. Without both, we cannot accomplish what is needed to save the United States.

From Robert again:

Jimmy, you sure like to make excuses. Look at the numbers. Most Americans don't want a theocracy and don't want "holier than thou" people in office. They DO want lower taxes and smaller government. So, perhaps if the religious righters would either step back or go somewhere else, we could reestablish a winning party.

Jz responds:

@Robert: I'm just saying what IS. There's no shot at winning this country back to a Constitutional basis without staunch conservatives. This has nothing to do with a theocracy. It has to do with the nation's origins and spiritual base. Anything less and we will -- without any doubt -- continue to slide into godless fascism. Look around you. Only dedicated, Godly conservatives can help us now.

Without the religious Christian conservative right, this experiment known as the United States of America is doomed.

I was right in my first post. You are the problem. You and everyone like you.
