Cumulus Media is warning conservative talk radio hosts under its employ that they’ll be fired if they continue to push unsupported claims of systemic voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

The broadcast company sent the ultimatum following the Capitol building riot to its talk radio personalities — including Ben Shapiro, Mark Levin and Dan Bongino.

Mediaite’s Ken Meyer has more:

Washington Post reports that in the aftermath of the chaos, Cumulus Executive Vice President Brian Philips sent out a memo ordering the company’s on-air personalities to drop all claims the election was stolen. Failure to comply, Philips said, will result in termination.

“We need to help induce national calm NOW,” Philips said. “[Cumulus and its syndication branches] will not tolerate any suggestion that the election has not ended. The election has been resolved and there are no alternate acceptable ‘paths’…If you transgress this policy, you can expect to separate from the company immediately.”

The memo was reportedly sent out on Wednesday after the riots — and it remains to be seen how it will be enforced. So far it seems Levin isn’t backing down from his Trump-boosting. On his Fox News show Sunday night, he went after the media for exploiting the violence, and claimed “the president did not incite an insurrection.”

How sad that ‘this’ is the ‘unity’ that the Democrats seem to want for our new socialist country . . . .

The demonrats’ definition of “unity” is ALL conservatives MUST abandon their beliefs and morals and totally adopt their un-American views.
The God told us through the Bible that everything that is happening right now would, such as right being wrong and wrong being right. Evil is all around us and we believers MUST continue to believe in what is right, even when the evil ones try to shame us into changing those beliefs.

My good man…the REAL “virus threat” is the spread of an alien form of attack which renders ordinary pweople TRULY insane , like the famous sci fi film Invasion of the Body Snatchers. I’ve seen it happening for years, to friends, family and even former Navy shipmates. This is truly a terrible hour!

Agreed–I think 75 million of us would be a great impact. Besides, life was better before Big Tech. Businesses are pressured to sell products through Amazon. We can help them by buying direct. We are losing all of our businesses and our local stores. Nowhere to shop any more except on the Internet. Time to turn things around. There will be competitors that will come along eventually.

The bigger issue than a “Stolen” election, is that the process is un-auditable. We would not stand for this in any other reporting. The election process needs to be re\vised and made so that only legal, live, citizens can vote ONCE. No more anonomous ballots that cannot be audited.

Luckily, we are a union of States and Republicans control 70% of the states. State Rights are our saving grace. States will protect us. Democratic States are in big trouble. Citizens and big bushiness are fleeing blue states. The East & West coast are in financial trouble. Washington, California, and New York have lost a 1/3 of the jobs in their states.

California has seen the light and is nearing enough petitions to recall the Tyrant Governor who has destroyed a 1/4 of ALL businesses in the state and is killing 1000’s because he failed to prepare the medical complex for the current outbreak and does not allow treatment until your hospitalized. California Socialism destroys jobs & our medical system. We now have ration Healthcare, because they have run out of room. 50% of America’s poor and homeless reside in the once great state. 30 Years of complete Democratic Policies are in full view for all to see. All we have is OK weather, tons of crime, homeless EVERYWHERE, High taxes, closed businesses and we are forced to stay at home, month after month watching our society die on the vine. Newsom’s answer lock downs. He releases criminals from prisons and orders us to stay at home month after month.

So were several of the contested states but they sat back and did nothing. All we wanted was a forensic audit of the mail in ballots. Very simple but none would agree or allow it to happoen. What does that tell you? 1. Trump was re-elected, 2 It doesn’t matter what party you belong to when you are not one of them, and 3 If Trump actually lost they would have wanted to punish Trump voters by showing forensic data proving he lost but they know as we all do he won this. There is no way you win 500 or so counties 300 or more less than Obama and get 80 plus million votes. No mathmatical way. This will continue just look at the run-off in GA.

Georgia was a strong Red state. They are now Blue. Texas is purple from all the Californians moving in and illegal aliens moving up. Liberals flee their states, destroyed by liberalism, to move to blue states (freedom, opportunity, low taxes) AND THEN VOTE FOR THE SAME LIBERAL POLICIES!! It is lunacy, and it is turning the whole country blue — major city by major city. Four cities determined the 2020 election — all densely populated Black voting blocks, who vote 95% Democrat, even when it is killing them by the thousands. So demoralizing.

President Trump DID Win! That is what the Garbage Media is trying to hide. That is why they are trying to silence every one because they know Joe Biden who is a Criminal POS and the Whore Kamala Harris didn’t win this election. It was stolen from President Trump through Dominion Voting Systems. Guess who is a major share holder : Nancy Pelosi ‘s husband Paul Pelosi. Do you really think that is a coincidence. Over 75+ Million People Voted for President Trump. He won every place in this Country by a Huge Margin. That is why they shut down the Voting in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Arizona, Georgia, ( there is one other place they shut down but I can’t remember it at this time). It’s because the Democrats and the Rino’s had to dump hundreds of thousands of votes for Biden and that is why they did it at 4 am in the early morning hours. Do these Stupid MF really think we will ever accept Biden and the Whore?!! I won’t!! Fuck them MF! Yeah and they have the gall to call President Trump a fascist and a dictator. YOU SCUMBAGS ARE THE FACISTS AND THE DICTATORS!! Look at how far these monsters have gone to try and silence anyone who disagrees with them. You Evil MF ( Democrats, Big Tech, MSM, and the Left ) have No idea how ENRAGED you have made the American People!! We won’t forget it either. Everyone of you Evil MF who had a part in this theft deserve to be shot for Treason. You are Traitors to this Country and you deserve the harshest punishment.

Like they did with Hitlery, Remember she still hasn’t accepted his win stating it was stolen from her. Bet those videos and statements are still on social media. They just didn’t cheat good enough in 2016 to overcome his popularity. They needed mass mail in voting to accomplish their task this time.

I knew there was a sense of desperation in 2016 when Hillary lost. The panic of the cheating being discovered and the four years of resorting to the lowest of low tricks but still couldn’t remove him from office. Of course the media, DNC the lot of them were shocked. I think they were all looking at one another and were asking “How could we have lost? We cheated, didn’t we ?” That was Dem cheating 1.0. 2.0 almost worked except that the numbers didn’t add up.
It America so disinterested in politics that a candidate can run for president from the comfort of his basement? Did he somehow identify with the millions and millions of basement dwellers who’s parents are helping them get started? I’m no political guru but comparing the turnouts for Mr. Trump at his rallies and the nearly void of participants Biden rallies, where in the heck were these people? Bill Barr was probably correct in that any irregularities they saw had no significant impact on the outcome of the election. He failed to add up the irregularities in their entirety. It’s very possible he was bright enough to see that pursuing this question of election accuracy was a land mine and bailed out.
Sad.
