After the open, I discuss President Obama's latest assault on the Constitution with Professor William Jacobson (starts 5:45); what being a lawful leader really means with Cato Institute President John Allison (starts 18:34); breaking events with Tea Party News Director Scottie Nell Hughes (starts 30:42); and the latest book from Frank Fleming with the author (starts 43:35).
Strong letter to follow---this was well before the Emperor's Speech! Expect "President" Obama to act even more outrageously as he is trying to provoke controversy--if you want to know why, google "Cloward Piven".
Events could move swiftly the wrong way in the Middle East---though I do not explicitly mention it in the article, losses there and in U.S. standing could have negative ripple effects closer to home in Venezuela, Argentina, and Cuba; in Europe; and across Africa and Asia.
Pretty darn funny!
A real treat to interact with Pat on breaking issues---here we discuss the looming vote on Keystone and Obama's failure to grasp economic and political realities. I will post the referenced Monty Python clip shortly.
Too many parts of the economy (thinking here especially of the public sector) get to argue that they are "valuable" using words alone. A closer look at financial disclosures, valuation levels, and trading activity suggests that Twitter common shares could be substantially overvalued.
Does President Obama not remember Nancy Pelosi syaing "we have to pass the Bill so we can find out what is in it"? Or the plain fact that regulations are still being written concerning how the hilariously named "Affordable Care Act" will operate. That President Obama could make these latest remarks should stiffen spines of all Americans who believe we can afford a government that serves us and does not embrace deceit.
Two big topics covered last Thursday morning: Obama's New ISIS "Strategy" and the "Grubering" of the American public. Sun News in Canada is doing an excellent job staying far ahead of "journalists" in America, Gruber's arrogant deceit, when tied into the Obama Administration and campaign apparatus while shift tectonic plates under the political landscape here.
So in 2009, Gruber's analyis was just a minor piece of the puzzle? NOT--it is time to start connecting the dots on illegal use of taxpayer dollars and the dwindling credit capacity of the United States for narrow partisan and private benefits. One place to start is rigorous auditing of payments made to private contractors and campaign contributors allied to BOTH/ALL parties.
And google BEA and "NIPA Tables" to see how enormous America's commitments were to WW II between 1941 and 1945 relative to the size of the private economy. Radical Islam and Jihadists are threats whose animation must be utterlt discredited--and this is an awfully large ask.
