Tune in to The Main Event this Saturday morning at 9:30 on AM590 with host Ed Hoffman as he discusses national current events and politics, with a few mortgage tips along the way. Ed delivers intelligent, entertaining radio that makes hard news easy to understand!
This week’s focus remains the San Bernardino terror attack that killed 14 people, characterized as the worst domestic terror attack since 9/11. As those of us who live in the Inland Empire are still trying to sort law enforcement facts from the media’s fiction about the terror attack in our community, Ed declares that “the media is blowing smoke up our behinds” – including their idea that Syed Farook was a good, all-American guy who was a peaceful Muslim until he met his Pakistani-born wife Tashfeen Malik. On this week’s show, you’ll hear media spin designed to perpetuate that myth – and, you’ll hear a counterterrorism expert say that it doesn’t matter who radicalized who first. “These aren’t people being brainwashed,” he says. “These are people choosing a life of jihad.”
You’ll also get Ed’s take on the latest details, including the $28,500 WebBank.com loan taken out by Farook, the photos of a Rialto high school on Farook’s cell phone, and of course, Farook’s suspicious ex-neighbor Enrique Marquez of Riverside. Ed describes what Marquez did immediately after the attack. “He posted to Facebook, ‘I’m sorry guys. It was a pleasure,’” Ed says, “and then he checked himself into a mental health facility. Gee, that doesn’t sound like he was involved at all.”
Next, Ed and guest Scott McAfee discuss some behind-the-scenes info gathered over the past week. Ed describes what he learned from a source in the building, which is that people saw three shooters, not two. This is substantiated by two eyewitnesses telling the media they saw three shooters – a detail that law enforcement has stayed mum on all week, even though one of the witnesses spoke about it on CBS Evening News (Ed plays audio of both of them). Now, the major media has stopped asking about it – but if you’ve been wondering about the possibility of three shooters, tune in to The Main Event this week. Right now, these details matter!
In the second half, we address Donald Trump’s most recent proposal on banning all Muslim immigration to the United States. Ed and Scott talk about what Trump said right and wrong, and compare it to President Jimmy Carter’s ban on Iranian immigration in 1980; you may be surprised by the similarities in Trump and Carter’s proposals.
On this week’s show, you’ll also hear:
- Comments from Brother Rachid, a common sense former Muslim-turned-Christian
- Ed’s choice words for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
- Analysis of President Obama’s speech on terrorism last Sunday
“People are scared,” Ed concludes. If you’re an Inland Empire resident who agrees, tune in to The Main Event this week.
