I'm live tonight on WOAI/San Antonio 6:05-9pm ET. http://www.woai.com/
President Obama is living up to his "OBUMMER" status with his comments today about national healthcare. As reporters questioned the President today, any government run healthcare plan as an option would eliminate the benefit most employers provide employees with healthcare. In hopes of "fixing" inequities in the system, President Obama would be breaking what does work. He seemed irritated at the idea that the option would sick the employee health care benefit. After all, if there is a cheaper system out there with minimum (get by) coverage, why wouldn't employees drop current coverage with insurance companies and go with a government run plan. In other words, EVERYONE would end up on the government run health care plan(which is the idea any way) and that would be the minimal, worst coverage out there.
Best question of the morning from FNC's Garrett asking Obama why it took him this long to say something negative about Iran and the recent Iranian election. I think I also heard President Obama say that "free speech" and "freedom of assembly" are international norms. What? They are the exceptions. Those are two of the freedoms that makes America and its democratic friends unique.
Tell me there isn't something wrong with our public schools. 700 NYC teachers get paid for not working. How do you get one of those jobs? Apparently, be involved in questionable activity.
Frank Gaffney's take on Obama's foreign policy:
There is a story in Texas that has drawn the attention of ranchers and farmers. It appears legislation that would further limit a land owner's right to do with their land as they please under the disguise of a clean water restoration act of 2009. The important part of the change is removing the word "navigable" from the legislation. This basically puts every body of water, whether on private land or not, under the EPA. For years, I have hosted shows with guests pointing out that the government continues to infringe on private ownership rights. It will be worse under this administration.
Tonight at 6:35pm ET Ken Timmerman http://www.kentimmerman.com/
Best-selling author Kenneth R. Timmerman is a contributing editor for Newsmax Media, and has spent his career investigating the dark side of national security. His latest work of non-fiction, Shadow Warriors: Traitors, Saboteurs, and the Party of Surrender, exposes the secret intelligence war, fought not against our enemies abroad, but by partisan bureaucrats and their allies in Congress and the media against a sitting United States president. Rush Limbaugh called the book "fabulous," and devoted five full pages of his monthly newsletter to it.
For his work in exposing the Islamic Republic of Iran's nuclear weapons program, he was nominated for the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize by former Swedish deputy Prime Minister Per Ahlmark.
Tonight at 8:05pm ET. Mark Olsen will join me to discuss Obama's health care plan and news conference today.
HEALTH CARE REFORM: AUTHOR MARK OLSEN ENVISIONS WHAT MIGHT BE
Health care reform is one of the top priorities of the Obama administration. But what would nationalized health care actually mean?
Best-selling author Mark Olsen envisions what we can expect with nationalized medicine in his new novel ANIMAL COLONY.
Ask him about:
- How the government, doctors, and drug companies are failing to fulfill their duties
- How current federal exercise recommendations are ineffective
- How sick care entitlements are driving us to bankruptcy
- How the diet industry is scamming consumers
ANIMAL COLONY, co-authored by Dr. Tom Rexroth and Mark Olsen.
