Aug 27: What’s a Blue Republican?
Aug 26th, 2011 by Sam

This week…

Guest:

Sick of the GOP? Sick of Obama? Sick of the Tea Party? Then Robin Koerner thinks he is the man for you!

Mr. Koerner joins Samantha this Saturday and the two will talk about “Blue Republicans“… A group that believes that the only way we truly achieve peace is by voting for GOP outsider Ron Paul.

Whether you’re a Blue Republican or a Red Democrat, you should be sure to check out this Saturday’s show.

 

Aug 20: Freedom of Religion…and Politics
Aug 20th, 2011 by Sam

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…or should it?

It depends on who you ask…

At 10am, Samantha talks about the political AND religious leanings of GOP superstars Michelle Bachmann and Rick Perry. Does religion have a place in government? Does Michelle Bachmann’s history of fundamentalist Christian beliefs cloud her judgement and make her too extreme for mainstream America?

And…

At 10:30am, Samantha welcomes Christian fundamentalist blogger, Jim Fletcher, to the show. The two will discuss modern, fundamentalist Christianity.

He writes on Prophecy Matters, Bible Prophecy Blog, and BeliefNet.com.

More on Rick Perry’s and Michele Bachmann’s religion:

Don’t know much about climate change? If so, then maybe you were duped by science frauds paid by the industries that pollute the most.

Join Samantha and one of the coauthors of the book, Merchants of Doubt”, Naomi Oreskes, as the two talk about the politics of climate change.

Who’s to blame?
Who’s profiting?
Who’s cares?

The answers to these questions and more on this Saturday’s show!

Remember! Listen to The Samantha Clemens Show this and every Saturday from 10-11am, only on AM 1510 and www.samanthaclemens.com.

Guest on Pundit Review
Aug 8th, 2011 by Sam

What fun this was….

Joined Kevin Whaylen on his show Pundit Review on Boston’s AM 68o WRKO for an hour of “downgrades, debt, deficits, new tone and even fusion energy.”  Was a ton of fun and we’ll get together for more….

Check out the audio and Kevin’s thoughts about it all here.

Aug 6: Brian Henchey on the Samantha Clemens Show

Well, the original idea for the show is below, but the conversation went like this…

Part 1: Samantha monologuing (is that a word?)

Part 2: Guest Brian Henchey

  • What is the difference between a moderate conservative, a conservative, and an arch conservative (it’s all about the compromise)
  • Reaction to Chris Christie’s response to “…fearmongering over Sharia law” in response to nominating a Muslim judge to the state Superior Court
  • Discussion of building mosques and Muslims in America

After the show, Executive Producer Aaron Donchen chastised Samantha for talking over the guest and regretted our ‘piling on’ in response to him graciously sharing his time with us.  Well, he was right and we think we can do better.

In the meantime, Brian noted that Samantha dodged the question: ”WHY would they have the opening day of the Ground Zero mosque ON 9/11 ?!?”  Fair enough.  The reason was because Samantha had not heard that this had happened and therefore could not speculate.  She wishes she had said so on the air.

In any case, it turns out that this is unfounded according to the nonpartisan FactCheck.org:

Is the center scheduled to open on Sept. 11, 2011?

Organizers say no. As best we can determine, the idea that the cultural center and mosque would open that day is unfounded speculation. [emphasis mine].  Project organizers say that no official date has been set for the opening of the proposed center. Imam Rauf told Newsday back in May that it could take anywhere from 18 months to three years to raise the money to complete the project, and added that the center wouldn’t open on the anniversary of Sept. 11. Project organizers took to the social networking site Twitter as recently as Aug. 20 to knock down the claim, saying: “Reports that we will open on 9/11 or begin construction on 9/11 are false and inflammatory. Our timeline to build is 18 – 38 months.”

The idea that the center and mosque would open on Sept. 11, 2011 — the 10-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks in 2001 — has been bandied about on blogs and discussion boards. The American Freedom Defense Initiative sponsored advertisements that may have also contributed to that thought. The initiative’s ads appeared on New York City buses and asked, “Why There?,” with an image of a plane flying into a burning World Trade Center, next to a rendering of the proposed building with the words “September 11, 2011, WTC Mega Mosque.”

So there you go.

Aug 2: Filling for Michele McPhee on WRKO
Aug 2nd, 2011 by Sam

Samantha fills in for Michele Mcphee on WRKO’s afternoon show.

 

She and the WRKO nation listened to President Obama’s Speech After Senate Passed Debt Solution and then bantered about a range of things, including:

A solution is Finally Passed on Debt Ceiling

Debt Ceiling Deal Finally Reached in Washington

Well, I guess we spent two hours talking about the debt ceiling, how Washington works, whether businesses make decisions solely based on tax rates (NOT!), who raised taxes the most, and how we can get away from this polarized political environment.  Whew!  What a great time.

Let me know what you think about it all…
