 And it must follow, as the night the day,
 Thou canst not then be false to any man.”…William Shakespeare “Hamlet”
“Journalism died in 2008.” …Sean Hannity

 

NC has lost a voice for truth and FL has gained one.
Jeff Katz was the voice for truth in NC. Katz spoke out against Barack Obama and warned what an Obama administration would do to the country. He did not tap dance around issues and was not politically correct. He was a breathe of fresh air in the midst of the mainstream media and the likes of the biased pro Obama Charlotte Observer. Jeff Katz and WBT radio parted ways about a year ago.

Citizen Wells, May 12, 2008
“I caught part of the Jeff Katz show today, Monday, May 12. 2008. Jeff just mentioned that if Obama wins the presidency, it may be the end of the country. I could not agree more. Jeff is bringing up aspects of Obama that the MSM is not covering. I commend Jeff Katz for the job he is doing.”
On December 4, 2008, the Citizen Wells blog got the following responses after the parting of the ways between Jeff Katz and WBT.

“I think Jeff Katz is the best thing to ever happen to talk radio in the Southeast…

He tells you what the leftist mainstream media will not…”

“People have the right to know about the truth. It is unfortunate most Americans are too dumb to think for themselves and hear the truth. Too bad Katz had to be fired. We just live in a society that is too politically correct. I’m going to talk about Obama and I always seek the facts before I judge. Too bad the idiots of America don’t see it that way.”

“I totally agree with you Citizen Wells…..Jeff Katz was the ONLY news person in the Charlotte area brave enough to tell the truth or even look for the truth concerning Obama. I listened to Jeff every day…loved his show…someone should have some explaining to do about this.”

Some people did not want to hear what Jeff Katz had to say. Look at the mess we are in now.

Jeff Katz has a new talk radio show on WFTL in the Fort Lauderdale, Broward County Florida area. The show airs weekdays from 3 – 6 PM.

Listen to Jeff Katz:

Here is Jeff’s bio from the site:

  
“Jeff Katz grew up in the blue collar Oxford Circle neighborhood of Philadelphia.

He worked on his first political campaign at the age of 12. Much to his parents’ chagrin, Jeff decided to become a police officer in Philadelphia’s rough and tumble public housing projects.  After several years of dodging bullets, he traded his badge and gun for headphones and a microphone.

Jeff went on to host award winning talk shows on some top radio stations in some of America’s great cities; KNEW, San Francisco, WRKO, Boston, KNXT, Las Vegas, WPHT, Philadelphia, and most recently WBT, Charlotte.

He has appeared on many network television programs including; FOX News/The O’Reilly Factor, MSNBC/Chris Matthews, CNN/Morning Edition, ABC/Nightline, and CNN/Showbiz Tonight.

TALKERS Magazine has consistently ranked Jeff Katz as one of the 100 most important Talk Radio hosts in America. Radio & Records named Jeff an “All-Star” when the readers of R & R voted him one of the 5 best local hosts.  Jeff also won the Achievement in Radio Award for “best talk show host.”

Jeff believes a successful Talk Radio host must be actively involved in the local community and plans to do just that now that he’s here in South Florida.  In the past, he has served as the Vice-Chairman of the California State Council on Developmental and Disabilities.  Jeff was also a Court appointed Special Advocate for children in the Superior Court system. He served on the Board of Advisors for the North Carolina Institute on Constitutional Law and is a Staff Officer for the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary.

Twice saluted by the President of the United States for his volunteer service and honored by the Marine Corps League and Shomrim Society (A Fraternal Organization for Jewish Police Officers of the New York City Police Department), Jeff is very involved in his local community.

Jeff and his wife Heidi have 3 young children.

Rush Limbaugh, Question for Limbaugh Show, December 2, 2009, Obama not eligible, Billboard, Barack Obama not natural born citizen, US Constitution, Father Kenyan British, No birth certificate, Obama spends millions to avoid

INTERNET BILLBOARD

Article II, Sec. 1, cl. 5 of the US Constitution

“No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President. . .”

From the 20th Amendment to the US Constitution.

“or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until
a President shall have qualified;”

December 2, 2009

Attention: Rush Limbaugh

It is not a conspiracy theory. Using the term “birther” in a condescending, Orwellian manner to discredit decent, hard working Americans who believe that the US Constitution is the law of the land, will not be tolerated.

1. Barack Obama has employed a legion of private and government attorneys to prevent revealing his country of birth. Innocent and eligible persons seeking the office of president do not do that.

2. Barack Obama’s father was a citizen of Kenya and a British citizen.  “natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution” was explicitly written to deal with the issue of foreign allegiances at the time of the writing of the US Constitution.

3. Barack Obama’s citizenship and allegiance was further tainted when he was adopted by his stepfather Lolo Soetoro and Obama became an Indonesian citizen.

4. Some combination of the above allowed Obama to travel to Pakistan in 1981 when travel there was restricted to US citizens.

5. The only document presented by the Obama camp is a Hawaii COLB. There has been no substantiation that it is authentic and it does not establish country of birth. As Lou Dobbs stated, “It is a piece of paper that refers to another piece of paper.”

6. All other documentation, all school records, that would establish country of birth have been kept hidden and restricted.

7. No authentic documentation has been presented to establish that Barack Obama was born in the US.

8. The records of all hospitals in Hawaii have been searched. There is no record of Stanley Ann Obama ever having given birth to a child.

9. Barack Obama’s paternal grandmother in Kenya has stated on multiple occasions that she was present at Obama’s birth in Mombasa.

10. Others have stated, including multiple family members, officials and press, that Obama was born in Kenya.

This has been presented in a manner that a fifth grader can understand. However, if you have any questions, please contact me on this blog.

Failure to learn more about and understand this critical issue and take appropriate measures can only be construed as apathy,  ignorance or having an un American agenda. This includes the Mainstream Media and the Fox network.

Questions for Rush Limbaugh

I have listened to the Rush Limbaugh show for at least 20 years. I have much respect for Rush. He strives to tell the truth and upholds American values dear to us. I do not always agree with Rush Limbaugh, but I must say, I probably agree with him at least 95% of the time.

I am requesting that that those reading this article, call in to the Rush Limbaugh show. It is not necessary to quote this blog, although that is ok. Request that Rush ask these simple questions:

1. How much money and time has Obama spent preventing the release of a legitimate birth certificate that proves his country of birth as well as other records such as college records?

2. How much of taxpayer or other people’s money has Obama spent in this evasive effort?

3. Why is Obama employing legions of private and government attorneys to avoid proving his eligibility?

There is no need to discuss plaintiff attorneys or their personalities or methodologies or judges or their decisions. These questions are simple and tell the tale about Obama’s eligibility and guilt.
This is about upholding the US Constitution and the rule of law.

To: Rush Limbaugh

The Mainstream Media and even Fox have ignored this simple but important story. Lou Dobbs, while he was still at CNN, Communist News Network, stated that Obama should present a legitimate birth certificate. I see no reason why you should not ask the above questions. Outside of the internet, we have depended on you to report on the important stories affecting this nation. Rush, we need you more than ever. I am asking you as a fellow conservative American, to present these questions to the American public.
God Bless

I am deeply offended by the actions and attitude of NC Senator Kay Hagan

From Senator Kay Hagan’s website:

“Hagan on board with stimulus, health-care reform
Johnston Herald

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

www.theherald-nc.com

By Andrew Kenney, Staff Writer

JOHNSTON COUNTY – U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan thinks the economy is on track to recovery, and she says health-care reform is a critical national goal.

Hagan, who took office in January, spoke with The Herald recently by phone.

The economy

“I think that the stimulus package is starting to work,” she said. “We’re seeing some of those investments in infrastructure and transportation and education.”

The money from the federal recovery bill is starting to flow faster, and positive signs have begun to surface, Hagan said. But a job-market recovery will likely not come until later, she added.

“I think jobs will lag a little bit behind … but once again, we’ve got the stimulus money out there, and we’re working hard to make sure we get the programs up and running,” Hagan said. “We’re running swiftly along those lines.”

This recession is a lingering one, but North Carolina’s workers could help pull the state ahead early, she said. “I think North Carolina has the most-eager workforce,” Hagan said. “I hear that from companies all the time.”

She sees education as a way to shorten the doldrums – and as a way to prevent another recession. Hagan has introduced a bill that would give schools money to teach personal finance to students in grades 6-12.

“Debt is good for you if you’re investing in a long-term investment, but not good for paying for your everyday expenses,” Hagan said. “It’s not rocket science; we just haven’t taught it.”

Health care

Hagan believes health-care reform is linked to economic recovery. Changes to health care could help small businesses, she said.

“I think small business is having a hard time with the health-care costs,” she said. “We’ve got to drive down the cost of health care.”

Under President Obama’s plan, a government-run program or nonprofit cooperative could compete with private insurance. For either to work, Hagan said, it must stabilize costs, ensure that people can use the plan and avoid adding to the federal deficit.

More money in health education could also drive down public health costs, Hagan said. She supports a bill that would give more money for diabetes education.

In recent weeks, some town hall meetings have echoed with protests against health-care reform. Hagan said that’s all part of the process and that the dour economy likely stirred stronger emotions and doubts about health care.

“I think many people are concerned about health care,” she said. “I think it’s important for the people in our country to be able to have discussions about any legislation, and you certainly have the right to do so.”

Hagan, a former state senator, said she has cherished her months on Capitol Hill. “It’s pretty exciting time, and I am honored to be serving the people of North Carolina,” she said.”

No wonder Senator Hagan does not want to host a town hall meeting with her constituents.

Blindly following or embracing the Obama far left strategy will not work in NC.

 

I have never been more proud of my fellow NC citizens than when I watched a video of a town hall meeting they held after many attempts to get the attention of Senator Kay Hagan.

The good folks in Wilmington, NC have been busy. Here is a video of one of their Tea Part protests from August 22, 2009.

Was this an Isolated case of miscommunication? Apparently not. Senator Hagan was interviewed on WBT talk radio by Keith Larson on Friday, August 28, 2009.

http://larson.wbt.com/index.cfm;jsessionid=2a30f8c2526d5fb6c99e664dc532cd303c62

 

Senator Kay Hagan has time for a Health Care for America Now, a radical Obama controlled organization, town hall, but not time for her hard working constituents.

Please pass this along to as many people as possible. Even if you do not live in NC, Senator Hagan’s attitude toward her constituents is typical of many in Congress. If you do live in NC, make sure everyone in NC is aware of Hagan’s position.

If you would like to have a town hall meeting hosted by Kay Hagan and have her explain her position on health care or why she is not listening to the public, contact her or comment on this site.

*** SEE  UPDATES  BELOW ***

I rarely listen to WBT radio in Charlotte, especially since Jeff Katz was let go. However, this morning, quite by chance, I caught the tail end of an interview of Kay Hagan by Keith Larson. Kay Hagan is a Democrat Senator from NC. Larsen did a really good job of forcing Hagan to answer questions about her support of the health care bill and about her not hosting town hall meetings. Senator Hagan provided very evasive and non commital answers. She claimed that she has an open door in her Charlotte office to answer questions from citizens, but when asked when she would be available she stated that she was going to Ted Kennedy’s funeral and had such a hectic schedule that she could not provide an answer as to when she will be available for her constituents.

This is unacceptable!

The Citizen Wells blog will get to the bottom of this and help the NC citizens hold Kay Hagen accountable.

The Charlotte Observer, today, Friday, August 28, 2009, has an article about Kay Hagen and her position on health care reform.

“Hagan held no town hall meetings over the August recess, but she noted that she held open office hours in Sanford this week in which she met in small groups with 50 to 60 residents.”

Sanford is a small city in the center of the state.

Keith Larson was trying to pin down Hagan as to when she would be available in Charlotte, the largest city in the state. He never got an answer.

Perhaps we should demand a town hall meeting from Senator Kay Hagan.

If you are a NC resident, let us know if you want a town hall meeting.

*** More on the real Kay Hagan and her disrespect for her constituents ***

CW, Thank you for posting Larson interview. You are right, it is the best I have heard.
I am very active here in Wilmington. Kay Hagan will not answer our emails, phone calls, ect. We have tried for weeks to get a commitment from her to visit Wilmington. Finally, we had a mock Town Hall without her. A video was made, and of course, sent to her. No response so far.

“Journalism died in 2008.” — Sean Hannity

Jeff Katz, the conservative talk show host on WBT radio in Charlotte NC, was fired on Monday, December 1,
2008. Katz hosted a show that ran just after the Rush Limbaugh show. Jeff Katz, who appeared to some
as too abrupt and controversial, did his damn job and spoke the truth. Now some are shooting the messenger.
Too negative? About Charlotte? Oh come on. Let me tell you, when I first began being in Charlotte, I could
not believe how bad some things were. Schools, crime, roads and city government for example. Negative?
Oh my goodness, why would anyone be negative.

You morons!! He has been telling the truth!

And oh my God! Question Obama and be negative?

That is a serious crime!
What bothers me about the Jeff Katz dismissal is that it falls under a broad category of preventing the
American people from hearing the truth. I have watched the election play out this year in amazement
as a “1984” like world has controlled the information presented or withheld about Barack Obama. The MSM
was totally in the tank for Obama. The Obama camp, using paid operatives and Obama fanatics has engaged in Nazi Brownshirt like tactics of scrubbing the internet, revisionist history altering of data, personal attacks
and shutting down websites of those questioning Obama.

The “Fairness Doctrine”, which is anything but fair, is raising it’s ugly head. This has been an ongoing
effort by the far left to silence their critics. Whether one agrees with people like Rush Limbaugh or
Jeff Katz, they serve an important function. Both Rush and Katz tell the truth and tell the American People
what they need to hear. People like Rush and Katz are hardly sufficient to counterbalance all of the
left wing propaganda we are bombarded with, but God help us if we lose them. In fact, many of the people
that have commented on Jeff Katz, indicated they were not Republicans or that they might have been
somewhat liberal, but liked listening to Katz to give them more balanced news.

So, what will come of this?

Rush Limbaugh fulfilled a need when he came along around 20 years ago. There had been a trend toward biased news for years. WBT has made what they refer to as a business decision. I believe they are making a huge mistake. Obama won Mecklenberg County and NC. However, if one examines the area he won, this is an island surrounded by more conservative, McCain voters. As I stated when I called WBT radio on Tuesday, there are squeaky wheels that voice their opinion often. However, there is a silent majority out there that is
fed up with biased reporting. That silent majority will respond with a backlash. Jeff Katz leaving
WBT will create a big vacuum (no offense to Tara Servatius who does a good job). This is a turning point
in information presentation. The Charlotte Observer, an extremely biased, left wing rag, is losing readership
and that is likely to escalate. WBT will lose listeners. The internet will increasingly take on a larger
role. Blog talk radio will increase in popularity. Citizen Wells has filled in for a host and has been urged
to host a show. Don’t be surprised if it happens.

I have contacted Jeff Katz and am waiting on a response.

The following sites are believed to be run by Jeff Katz. I will confirm this.

Here are some comments from this blog about the Jeff Katz dismissal:

“I think Jeff Katz is the best thing to ever happen to talk radio in the Southeast…

He tells you what the leftist mainstream media will not…”

“People have the right to know about the truth. It is unfortunate most Americans are too dumb to think for themselves and hear the truth. Too bad Katz had to be fired. We just live in a society that is too politically correct. I’m going to talk about Obama and I always seek the facts before I judge. Too bad the idiots of America don’t see it that way.”

“I totally agree with you Citizen Wells…..Jeff Katz was the ONLY news person in the Charlotte area brave enough to tell the truth or even look for the truth concerning Obama. I listened to Jeff every day…loved his show…someone should have some explaining to do about this.

When the newspapers or talk radio can no longer seek the truth in our country, then for all practical purposes, objective reporting is DOA (dead on arrival) and everyone(including the owners of the radio stations and newspapers) are in deep doo-do! Ask Hier Hitler what he did!

This is outrageous. Citizen you are also correct about the Charlotte Observer. What a rag sheet and they have no compitition, but they are loosing their subscribers! I wonder why?

I hope they loose all their readers. I’m sure when the smoke clears they will have had a lot to do with the firing of Jeff .

Jeff certainly did his part in exposing this Obama charade, now it’s our turn to make our voices heard. Please every one in the Charlotte area do this:

1. CALL WBT AND TELL THEM; BRING BACK JEFF KATZ OR LOSE YOUR AUDIENCE!

2. EVERYONE IN THE CHARLOTTE AREA STOP LISTENING TO WBT!!!! IF KATZ’S LOYAL LISTENER’S STOP TURNING THEIR RADIOS TO WBT, THEY WILL GET THE MESSAGE!

BOYCOTT,BOYCOTT, BOYCOTT,BOYCOTT!

3. LOCAL BUSINESSES STOP ADVERTISING ON WBT UNTIL KATZ RETURNS!

IT WORKS FOR JESSIE JACKSON AND WILL WORK FOR US ALSO. MAKE YOUR SILENT VOICES HEARD!”

“The politically correct weenies at WBT have groveled to the radical liberal left. Rush Limbaugh and Jeff Katz were the only hosts who tell it like it is without all the p/c crap. I will still listen to Rush, but not on WBT and to Katz as soon as his new show begins. And, it will begin.”

“Jeff Katz, like Jason Lewis before him, ask questions and addressed issues that I found not only interesting but necessary. The mainstream media, whom I trusted for more years than I care to mention, no longer brings the news, they make the news. Jeff had a curiosity about Obama that I, and many others, have. Who is he really? Why is his birth certificate sealed? Why is his college admission papers sealed? What is there to hide? When it comes to other subjects, like illegal immigration he simply refused to call it “undocumented immigrants”. The operative word is, and always will be, ILLEGAL. What is wrong in asking the hard questions?”

“Jeff Katz was the best thing on WBT. I ‘m so very upset over this. WBT shame on you, you have made a hugh mistake. I will boycott WBT, Charlotte Observer way too liberal for me, they never report the truth. God bless you Jeff and your family, you are truly gifted and deserve your own radio show like Glen, Rush, and Shawn.”

“Jeff Katz was the reason I began listening to WBT in the first place. I am so tired of being forced to swallow the biased liberal crap the mainstream media feeds us! Jeff gave a voice to discouraged conservatives. I”ve listened to Tara before and respect her abilities but can’t stomach this change. You’ve lost me WBT!”

“Like Mac, I started listening to WBT because of Jeff Katz. When I heard the reasoning for his release, I changed my radio preset. It seemed like the GM and PM were reciting an overly rehearsed line during their show. Tara is alright, but she gets repetitive and doesn’t keep my attention.”

“I will miss Jeff Katz, I wish him and his family a Merry Christmas and hope he finds a station that will appreciate him . Thank you for your work, Citizen. Please keep all of us informed as to what is happening.”

“WBT made a HUGE mistake by dumping Jeff Katz. Do they really think Tara can fill his shoes? Well, she can’t.

I’ve listened to Tara. She’s okay but frankly, not very articulate. Doesn’t hold a candle to Jeff.

To make a move a stupid as this I have to wonder if Rick Jackson & Bill White are on drugs. No, you say? Then they should be!

WBT just lost this listener. I simply won’t be back and am glad my satelite radio is already in place.”

Jeff Katz, Charlotte NC, WBT radio, Conservative talk radio host fired, general manager Rick Jackson, Bill White, program director, On air questions, CharlotteObserver.com article, December 3, 2008

Mark Washburn of CharlotteObserver.com has an article on the WBT radio on air question and answer segment from Tuesday, December 2, 2008.  General manager Rick Jackson and program director Bill White answered questions from callers regarding the dismissal of talk show host Jeff Katz. Citizen Wells was quoted stating “Jeff Katz was the one beacon telling the truth,” .

“WBT’s management team took over Jeff Katz’s time slot Tuesday to explain to listeners why he wouldn’t be on the air in Charlotte any more – ratings and research.”

““We made these decisions based on business,” Jackson said. “We do know collectively over time through research and ratings how people here perform.”

Station studies showed Katz had problems with the listeners, Jackson said. “We could see the fit wasn’t right here.””

“Callers offered varied opinions about Katz.

“I’m glad he’s gone,” said the first caller, Jim from Charlotte. “This guy, all he would do is the negative.”

Another complained that he disagreed with Katz and was cut off the air.

Others praised Katz for his dogged conservatism and community work. “Jeff Katz was the one beacon telling the truth,” said one listener who called himself “Citizen Wells.””

Here is the Citizen Wells response to this article:

“I was born in the middle of the state, lived most of my life in the northern part of the state and have spent more time in Charlotte the past several years. Jeff Katz was the only media person in the Charlotte area presenting the truth about Obama. In response to his being negative, don’t shoot the messenger. When I began being in Charlotte several years ago, I was appalled by the problems here. School issues dominated the news but high crime is always lurking as a major issue. Throw in lousy roads and government. You really think Katz is negative? Once again, he was the messenger.
The Charlotte area owes Jeff Katz a debt of gratitude for revealing the truth, especially about Barack Obama.
God bless Jeff Katz.”

Jeff Katz fired, WBT talk radio fires Katz, Update, December 2, 2008, Citizen Wells calls in, WBT radio management, Rick Jackson, WBT Program Director Bill White, Marketing decision

Citizen Wells listened to Rick Jackson and Bill White discuss the dismissal of Jeff Katz and replacement
with Tara Servatious. They stated it was a marketing decision that had been in the works for a while.
Citizen Wells got through and stated that Jeff Katz was the lone voice in the area telling the truth.
Wells mentioned that the “squeaky wheel gets the grease” and that there is a silent majority out there
there will provide a backlash. After a brief statement, Citizen Wells was cut off.

This blog will be digging a little deeper, but right now it appears that Jeff Katz was let go for
questioning the “messiah”, Obama. This is part of a disturbing trend occurring nationwide. The MSM
has utterly failed the American people. If it is confirmed that Katz was let go for questioning Obama,
WBT radio will join the Charlotte Observer in a rapid downward spiral to join the dinosaurs.
