Todd Starnes Show – Feb 8
THE FIRST HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
12:05pm- Beautiful Brown Skin! House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., held the floor of the House of Representatives for more than eight hours Wednesday to deliver a record-breaking marathon speech protesting a budget deal reached by Senate leaders. Clad in four-inch heels, Pelosi spoke for eight hours and seven minutes and was given a standing ovation by her Democratic colleagues when she yielded the floor at 6:11 p.m. “When you’re out there talking, it seems shorter,” Pelosi told reporters as she came off the floor. “When you’re listening, it seems longer.” In her remarks, Pelosi announced that she and many fellow House Democrats would oppose the spending package unless House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., promised to allow a vote on a plan to shield from deportation hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally.
12:30pm– Guest: Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, Host of Huckabee on TBN. You can check him out at Mikehuckabee.com
12:50pm- Parents, veterans and community members voiced their outrage to a Pico Rivera school board Tuesday over an anti-military rant made by a teacher and city councilman.
THE SECOND HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
1:05pm- Disrespectful! Safety Malcolm Jenkins, defensive end Chris Long and wide receiver Torrey Smith are among the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles who will decline an invitation to the White House if President Donald Trump offers one. “Going to the White House should be seen as an honor, and I believe it is an honor, but to me it has to be an honor with the right type of respect in office. I just don’t see it,” Smith said. “It’s not about politics; I just don’t think the president is a good person. I don’t want to go out of my way to go see someone who isn’t even welcoming the men in this locker room and our different cultures.”
1:30pm- Isolated! Citing public safety concerns ahead of the February 26 Young America’s Foundation lecture featuring Ben Shapiro (part of the David and Marlyce Logan Advancing Freedom Lecture Series), University of Minnesota administrators have repeatedly denied conservative students’ requests for venues and isolated them to “an island” away from the central part of campus. Apparently, administrators do not want the event to take place near light rail, University Avenue, or hospitals that border the campus in case intolerant leftists react adversely to ideological diversity. Instead of enforcing the law and holding anyone who attempts to disrupt the event or destroy property accountable, the U of M is punishing conservatives with stringent regulations that didn’t apply to speaking events by now-disgraced Senator Al Franken or an appearance by Senator Elizabeth Warren. The plan to effectively quarantine conservatives on a satellite campus shows the University of Minnesota’s disregard for the free exchange of ideas and double standard when it comes to working with conservative students who wish to advance their ideas on campus. Guest: Spencer Brown, spokesperson for Young America’s Foundation
1:50pm- Macy’s launches line of clothing for Muslim women featuring hijabs
THE THIRD HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
2:30pm- Guest: Michael Perkins, director of The God Who Speaks is a 90-minute documentary that traces the evidence of the Bible’s authority through interviews with some of the world’s most respected biblical scholars. This film answers common objections about the Bible’s reliability and equips believers to confidently base their lives on the power of God’s Word.
2:50pm- Breaking Tradition! Ontario’s Chaffey High School is breaking with tradition. School officials have decided not to allow the boys pep squad to dress up as cheerleaders this year during the annual powderpuff football game. The high school event is part of Backwards Day with the girls playing football, and up until now, the boys on the sideline in full cheer attire cheering them on. Students upset over the decision took to social media with the hashtag #yestocrossdress to protest.
