Today on Cavuto, Stuart Varney was filling in for Neil and one of his guests, radio talk show host Mike Papantonio, was on to discuss America’s obvious slide toward Socialism. The impetus for the subject was an apparent recent comment by Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner, saying those who claim we’re on the move toward Socialism are just crazy.
I was waiting to see how long it would take before Varney, from England, unleashed his “look here, buddy” on Papantonio, seeing as how Varney emigrated to the United States to escape socialist England. Stuart wiped the floor with Papantonio but Paps was too stupid to realize.
Fmr. 1st Lt. Melissa Stockwell and Sgt. Ireshekia Henry were on The View today in celebration of Memorial Day. Both ladies, in addition to being heroes, are amputees. Elizabeth tells their story and introduces America to a couple of fabulous patriots.
And to no one’s surprise, there had to be one “did she really just ask that?” moment. This time it came from the head hen, Barbara. It’s nice to see 1st Lt. stand her ground.
I was just happy to see they allowed two such heroes to grace their presence, and the whole crew should have felt humbled.
Today’s day of celebration to honor our military veterans and heroes, there were quite a few heart-warming moments in the show. Here are just a few of them. I hope you all got a chance to watch this on PBS, but in case you didn’t, here are some heart-felt highlights of the evening.
As you watch these tributes, say a little prayer for all of our men and women sacrificing their lives so that we may live in freedom.
God bless these men and women who serve this country, and more specificaly… God bless those like Gary Sinise, Trace Adkins, Joe Montegna and others who share their time with us to celebrate these honors and these troops.
God bless our military men and women, God bless those who honor their sacrifices, and may God continue to bless the United States of America.
This was an absolutely fabulous segment on Beck’s show from last Friday.
The audacity of so many facets of the Obama administration, and the most egregiously so, speed-reading of the energy bill. I am outraged! Where is your outrage, America? Why aren’t you standing up and asking questions of your government? Why? When all this goes down in the shi**er, you’ll have no one to blame but yourselves, and I’m hoping you’re happy with what you’ve got. Because by God, the rest of us are having to pay the price for your choices.
I agree with Breitbart: Where is the Republican outrage, and why aren’t they using this to their benefit? This is unconscionable to have been done to the American people!! They are playing us for fools and WE ARE LETTING THEM!!!!! WTF is that all about?
Today on Meet the Press, Gingrich and Durbin debated about the Gitmo conundrum and what to do about the terrorist detainees. Here’s a portion of the transcript:
FMR. REP. NEWT GINGRCH, (R-GA): Well, let, let me start with, first of all, it was Secretary of State Colin Powell who also talked about weapons of mass destruction, so this is not a Cheney problem. The fact is every member of the American government senior leadership believed in the intelligence they were getting at the time. And the question comes right down to, as Vice President Cheney said this week, what’s your highest priority? Is it to defend America and protect American lives, or is it to find some way to defend terrorists and to get terrorists involved in the criminal justice system? I can’t imagine–given the fact, for example, that we just picked up four terrorists in New York who had been converted in prison, I can’t imagine–the director of the FBI has said don’t put these terrorists in prisons because there’ll be an active threat to convert other people. The fact is these, these terrorists–we’re now down to the worst of the worst. These are the–the Bush administration released over 500 people. One out of every seven actually went back to war against us and is out actively trying to kill Americans today. So I would be very cautious. I think the president made a very big mistake. It was a campaign promise, it is not a national security plan. I think, frankly, they should keep Guantanamo open. Whatever the, whatever things that are wrong at Guantanamo they would fix by moving them to somewhere else, fix them at Guantanamo.
