Cruz, Huckabee hit conservitive talking points with Todd Starnes

Starnes’ Thursday show included conversation on Rep. Liz Cheney, Israel & Palestine violence and the Coastal Pipeline shutdown

Published

Normally a radio host will have one “featured guest” during their time slot. Such was not the case for nationally syndicated host Todd Starnes. Thursday evening, an All-Star lineup of conservative voices from the world of media and politics appeared on The Todd Starnes Show, including Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, and many others. ]

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene was also scheduled to appear, but could not, so Starnes filled that segment questioning whether the Coastal Pipeline shutdown was politically motivated.

Collectively, Cruz and Huckabee hit on many major conservative talking points such as criticizing the main stream media, President Joe Biden as well as liberal members of Congress, while also offering opinions on rising tensions in the Middle East.

“The media desperately wants to fan the flames of a Civil War among Republicans over Liz Cheney,” first guest Cruz said. “To be honest, Republicans are more unified now than they were just a few days ago. The only hope  the Democrats have in 2022 is to create this notion of a Civil War when there is none. We are on a path to take the House and Senate.”

Second guest, former Arkansas governor and host of the TV program Mike Huckabee Today, Mike  Huckabee, changed course to talk about tensions in the Middle East between Israel and Hamas.

“Hamas is firing rockets at Israel trying to kill women and children,” Huckabee said, When Israel defends itself, Hamas places children in front of their soldiers so they can claim that Israel is killing children. No civilized people do that. But you got Senators and other liberals on Capitol Hill acting like the press secretary for Hamas. There was no uprising when Trump was in office because they were afraid of him, but Biden gets in and he is so soft. He sends 200 million dollars to Iran to build better streets and schools, but Iran is sending that money to Hamas to try and wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. It’s a disastrous policy by Biden. It’s taken just three months for all the progress Donald Trump made to literally go up in smoke under Joe Biden.”

In the final hour, looking for a segment to fill, Starnes pivoted to the gas shortage in the Eastern United States.

“I had heard some listeners’ opinions that this shutdown was caused by Biden to push an agenda and I didn’t think so,” Starnes said. “But then I hear Press Secretary Jen Psaki say, ‘if we all drove electric cars, this wouldn’t be a problem’. That gives me pause. I wonder if this will accelerate the move to electric cars which is something The Biden Administration wants. We will just have to wait and see.”

The Emmy award-winning investigative reporter spent nearly 30-years at Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV before he was fired in 2019 for making an alleged racial comment about another reporter.

“The station has a zero-tolerance policy on racially insensitive comments, and they determined, despite the intent and context of my statement, that it violated the policy,” he said at the time.

Dietz garnered 17 Emmy awards in 26 years at WDIV. He began his career in Traverse City, Michigan in 1988.

WJR has not revealed if Dietz will continue hosting the show alone or if a co-host will be brought in.
