The revelations keep on coming! As thousands took to the streets in DC over the weekend, telling the administration and the NSA to stop watching us, we learned that – in addition to listening in on Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel’s personal phone calls, the NSA monitored 60 million phone calls, texts and emails in Spain in one month!
I played two videos on the show this morning, courtesy of StopWatching.US:
There is no end in sight.
Last night 60 Minutes devoted its opening segment to Benghazi. Talk about timing! I had already scheduled Ari Rabin-Havt for today’s show. Ari is the morning host on XM 127 “Progress” and a senior fellow at Media Matters– and co-author of the new ebook The Benghazi Hoax .
If you haven’t yet seen it, the 60 Minutes piece was interesting and certainly worth watching:
The thing that I found most fascinating didn’t seem to faze Ari Rabin-Havt at all! The subject of that story, “Sergeant Morgan Jones” – the security contractor who was interviewed- wrote his new book, The Embassy House: The Explosive Eyewitness Account of the Libyan Embassy Siege by the Soldier Who Was There, with a ghost writer, Damien Lewis.
We’re talking about terrorists, Al Qaeda operatives, etc, and the book containing first-hand accounts of the attack on US assets in Benghazi was ghost-written by a guy with the same name as the actor who plays Brody on Homeland!
There’s something fishy in Libya… or not…
It’s Monday, so Nicole Belle joined in to let us know what we missed by not watching the Sunday talking head shows… It’s a segment we call “Fools on the Hill”…
Andrea Mitchell concern trolls over the US standing, ignoring everything that has happened prior to Obama’s inauguration.
Rep. John Fleming wants Kathleen Sebelius fired because he’s a taxpayer and she works for him.
Dick Cheney doesn’t belong on my television ever again, but certainly not to lie about his daughter’s Senate campaign.
David Gregory tries to get the CEO of Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Florida to trash Obamacare because he was forced to “drop” 300,000 Floridians from their coverage, but he wasn’t playing.
And then he lets Alex Castellanos call Social Security a “Ponzi scheme” . Of course, he’s the guy who thinks Obama has to talk tough to seniors too.
