One of the reasons we appreciate Dan Bongino is that he’s never been one to run from a fight… even when losing could cost him something. When you’re standing on principles, that’s what integrity looks like.
He’s been more than ready to put his money where his mouth is.
He’s got a track record to prove it.
When YouTube tried to pull the rug out from under him, he invested in Rumble. When Twitter blacklisted him and so many conservatives, he partnered with Parler. When he saw Bezos’ AWS pull the plug on Parler, he got to work with some partners in developing a completely parallel system. Instead of web hosting, payment processing and all the other links in the chain being easy pickings for authoritarians who want to silence dissenting voices and political views (the way Trump went dark one day in January), Bongino has been building resources where dissenting voices of any political stripe can participate freely in the digital public square.
When Rush Limbaugh’s Slot was carved up, Dan was one of the heirs apparent
Rush Limbaugh was a titan in the industry and no honest, self-respecting broadcaster would even try to compare themselves to the legacy he built. But every man is mortal and the march of time goes ever onward. That coveted timeslot was too big for just one show to fill.
Somewhere around 5 months ago, Buck Sexton and Clay Travis became heirs to the EIB name itself, but Cumulus, one of the broadcasters that carried Rush Limbaugh went a different direction and launched a new show in that time slot … with Dan Bongino’s name on it.
COVIDictators And Mandates
Like many conservative broadcasters, he railed against many aspects of government overreach through the shutdowns, and more recently, with the Biden Administration vaccine mandates.
Dan had a brush with cancer in 2020. He was immunocompromised. He weighed his risks and decided to take the vaccine. His fight isn’t with people who do or do not take the vaccine. His fight is with authoritarians meddling in the personal medical decisions of Americans.
It came to light that Cumulus will be insisting that their employees be vaccinated. Since he’s vaccinated, Dan Bongino is not in danger of the negative consequences of that policy… but he is taking a stand not for himself … but for others to have the right to make their own medical decisions.
.@dbongino publicly calls out Cumulus, who carries his radio show on hundreds of stations, for issuing its own vaccine mandate.

After making it abundantly clear that nobody is ‘letting this go’, he explains his position in words so simple even Jen Psaki could understand it.
I promise you I have no intentions of letting these guys get let go, get harassed, because of a private and personal medical decision on only one of the biggest issues of our time. There is a very real thing called natural immunity. There’s an even ‘realer’ thing called freedom and liberty.
This is a Constitutional Republic. People have the right to make their own medical decisions.
AND, the company has the right to do what it wants as well. I get that. I’m not naive to that. But if the company is going to make political decisions, and I believe this was a political decision. I don’t believe this was based on any science, I could argue it all day, then they should at least recognize that the company is making a lot of money off people who have the opposite political persuasion.

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
