With the national political spotlight shining squarely on Georgia, Atlanta radio host Eric Von Haessler provided local Libertarian perspective on the two U.S. Senate races that will decide the balance of power. During The Von Haessler Doctrine on WSB Monday, the host says the elections don’t matter because the candidates in both races are “Evil” and “Un-American”

“I hate to use this term, but both parties are evil,” Von Haessler said. “All four canidates have sold their souls to the Devil. The sad part is two of them have sold their souls to the Devil and are going to lose. What do you do after you lose an election like this? I guess you could cash a paycheck at CNN or FOX.”

Von Haessler then blames the media for dividing the country along party lines.

“The media will tell you that Republicans and Democrats hate each other,” he said. “They are trying to drive a wedge between us. If you watch any news at all, they will tell you the world’s on fire and make other absurd claims. About the only one that’s accurate is that Trump is an A-hole. They say if one party or the other wins, we will be a communist country or old white people will take away the right to vote from women and minorities. It’s all B.S. The media tells you that if you don’t vote the world will end. Well guess what? They will say that in the next election, too. No matter who wins, life goes on.”

Even though much of the national media is stressing the importance of both Senate races, Van Haessler says the outcome doesn’t really matter and therefore he is not voting.

“I have no skin in the game,” he said. “I have friends on the left and the right who will get mad at me but I’m not voting for any candidate who is un-American and they all are…. They are all stupid No matter who wins, we all lose. Anybody who puts their own personal vision or their parties’ vision of America before the needs of actual Americans, that’s un-American. Until politicians come back to the people, I will not be voting.”

The run-off elections will take place Tuesday, January 5th.

During his show on Wednesday, Shapiro said Trump may hold power over the Republican party but when it comes to local political races, there are other factors at play.

Syndicated radio host and author Ben Shapiro suggested that an endorsement from former President Donald Trump is not the golden ticket it’s portrayed to be.

During his show on Wednesday, Shapiro said Trump may hold power over the Republican party but when it comes to local political races, there are other factors at play.

“So, there’s a difference between Donald Trump endorsing a person, which I don’t think has a lot of power. And Donald Trump is destroying people,” Shapiro said via Mediate.

“He (Trump) actually talked about how Brian Kemp was terrible and horrible and no good and very bad. And Brian Kemp won because he had earned the loyalty of the Republican voting base in Georgia, despite Trump’s anger at Brian Kemp.”

Shapiro concluded that “Trump does not have the sort of stranglehold the media thinks he has on the Republican Party.” 

Recently, Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz is one Trump-endorsed candidate that has backed away from the former president.

An Axios analysis of Oz’s social media and campaign website uncovered that the Republican candidate is no longer lauding his Trump endorsement ahead of the midterm elections this fall.

Longtime WIBC-FM news anchor Stan Lehr is calling it quits after nearly 30 years behind the microphone. The Indianapolis Star reports that Lehr’s last day will be July 1. 

WIBC is owned by Emmis Communications who last week announced a move to sell its Indianapolis radio properties to Maryland-based Radio One. Lehr’s retirement reportedly had nothing to do with the news of the impending sale. 

“This will bring to an end a long chapter in the station’s history,” WIBC News Director Chris Davis wrote in his email. “His reputation as a stickler has been widely-known in the industry for decades.” 

Davis described Lehr as a “stickler” who never wanted recognition for his work. 

“Instead, he made it clear to all who work or have worked with him that strong writing, accuracy, and excellence in delivery are the best ways to serve the listeners,” added Davis.
