How To Force Your Congressman to Change His Underwear. Show Notes-2/24/13 Show

Thanks to our special guest Betsy McCaughey, author of Beating Obamacare: Your Handbook for the New Healthcare Lawfor sharing some essential information about the federal government’s takeover of our healthcare system. Did you know that you might be headed for Medicaid next year? Did you also know that patients covered by Medicaid have worse outcomes than the uninsured? Did you know that even if you retain your private insurance, the federal government will review your doctor’s decisions about your care?

On February 15, I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing one of America’s leading experts on the 2nd amendment, David Kopel, and we heard Part 1 of the interview as part of this week’s 2nd Amendment Update. Part 2 will air next week.

Sunday Shows: the Regime sends buffoonish dullard/former Illinois GOP stooge Sec. of Defense Ray LaHood to CNN’s “State of the Union” and NBC’s “Meet The Press” to describe the parade of horribles that will befall us if we deprive the federal government of a single dime. Surprisingly (no, not really), hapless LaHood had no answer when Candy Crowley asked why he was warning of grounded planes and air traffic delays when (1) the FAA’s budget has increased $500 billion since 2008 and (2) the number of domestic flights is down 27% since 9/11, while the FAA budget is up 41%. Suggestion: if you want to get your congressman to wet himself, especially if he is a democrat, call and see if he can do what LaHood couldn’t or wouldn’t do; that is, answer these questions. Obama needs to stop whining about the sequester, since it was his idea, and he has spending the last week conducting a clinic on demagoguery, lying through his teeth about that fact, and the fact that any pain felt by the public will be because he is choosing it. He’s trying to tell us that he has no choice but to furlough meat inspectors and air traffic controllers because of a 2% decrease in the rate of growth rather than cutting out some bureaucratic bloat? PULEEZE!!

Michelle Hijacks Oscars: Like Finding a Rat in the Bottom of Your Salad Bowl

Perhaps owing to my extremely low expectations, for most of last night’s Oscar broadcast, I was pleasantly surprised by Seth MacFarlane’s mediocre performance, which was lame as I expected, but not quite as crude and obnoxious. He was sort of like a game show host who laughed a lot at his own jokes. I will say that I thought the sock puppet “Flight” was one of the funniest things I have ever seen on an awards show in years, which, granted, is a very low standard, so there was that, but that happened within the first 20 minutes of the show, and by the time over 3 hours had passed, the satisfaction provided by that little morsel had worn off. If I wore a watch, I would have been looking at it after the first hour. As always, many of the speeches provided more proof that actors are a lot like Barack Obama; that is, if we want them to even masquerade as being articulate and intelligent, we need to write them scripts. It was a little jarring when Barbara Streisand showed up because I thought “here we go,” as in we’ve managed to get through this entire thing without any political speeches, and here comes this brainless big mouth, but Babs didn’t utter a controversial word while eulogizing her late friend Marvin Hamlisch, and I’ll admit it. As much as I hate her politics, she can sing, which is why, as I recently explained to a couple of friends is why she never had the schnoz fixed. No one could predict how a nose job would affect her voice. They got this “I could have a had a V-8!” look. No one thinks about that but it’s true.

Speaking of singing, while watching Jennifer Hudson, I turned to the Husband and said “when did screeching become a substitute for singing?”

Anyway, just when we thought we had made it through this thing without many obnoxious leftwing lectures, other than the one lame MacFarlane remark about the “Christian right,” who shows up to highjack the thing but the First Klingon herself? When Mooch, looking like a drag queen with her usual ridiculously excessive makeup, with members of the military as props, hijacked this show, it was like finding a dead rat at the bottom of your salad.

Now, we find out that the repulsive Hollywood pig Harvey Weinstein engineered this whole thing. Hey, Mooch, I’ve got an idea for you? Why don’t you enlist your pal Harvey in your “Let’s Move” routine? He looks like he could use a little help in that department. And as long as I ‘m going there, let me suggest that you might want to get David “More Chins Than a Chinese Phonebook” Axelrod and Robert I was sworn to secrecy about that drone thing” Gibbs on that Stairmaster while you’re at it. Gee, I wonder if we would have heard any speeches about targeted killings and transparency if a Republican were conducting this drone campaign …

Seriously, I understand that the Obamas owe Hollywood big time for all the campaign contributions, and that Hollywood limousine libs are among the most enthusiastic members of the Cult of Obama, but this routine last night was way over the top. The only saving grace was that the Celebutard-in-Chief himself didn’t show up.

I can’t decide whether this current popular culture/Lame Stream Media environment, in which there is no serious journalism, only TMZ and “Entertainment Tonight” coverage conning low-information people into thinking they are getting actual news, seems more like North Korea or Peròn’s Argentina.

Will Hollywood Help The Unsung Hero of “Zero Dark Thirty” When Obama Won’t?

I didn’t have a chance to mention this story during today’s show, darn it. I don’t know where the time goes on the show, I swear! Anyway, here’s the story, from CBS Los Angeles:

 “Zero Dark Thirty” is a contender to bring home an Academy Award for Best Picture this weekend, but first, local activists are joining forces to free a doctor who helped the United States find Osama bin Laden.

Arguably playing the most critical role in the 10-year hunt for bin Laden is Dr. Shakil Afridi, who is currently being held in a Pakistani prison. If Beverly Hills businessman Bob Lorsch has his way, Afridi’s story will steal the show at the Academy Awards on Sunday.

He calls Afridi a patriot who’s been left behind.

“This is the guy who saved America in terms of finding Osama bin Laden and now he’s stuck in the same environment as the people that are killing American soldiers,” Lorsch said.

Lorsch and Congressman Dana Rohrbacher hope the Oscars and “Zero Dark Thirty”, which is based on the manhunt for Osama bin Laden, can be used shed light on Afridi. The hero doctor was left behind and arrested just days after bin Laden was killed.

“And now, he is sitting for 33 years in a jail cell either being tied, tortured, bound, starved,” Lorsch added.

Afridi reportedly worked with our government under the guise of a vaccination program to get inside bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound and confirm he was there – information the U.S. needed to make the raid and ultimately kill bin Laden.

 

More here.

Mr. Lorsch wants everyone who wins to mention Dr. Afridi in his or her acceptance speeches, which is a terrific idea. Isn’t it interesting that a private citizen is showing leadership to help this man who made the capture of bin Laden possible? Why isn’t the alleged leader of the free world doing anything like that? I guess you can’t expect leadership for a guy who voted “present” over 100 times while in the Illinois State Senate.

Overcoming Obamacare, Plus Obama’s War on the 2nd Amendment-Today on The Teri O’Brien Show

This week we learned that, in addition to his many other talents, Joe Biden is also a firearms’ expert. Who knew? He got a little testy during what he thought would be another anti-Second Amendment agitprop fest, this time for Parents’ magazine, when a questioner suggested that the administration’s proposals might make it difficult for law-abiding Americans to defend themselves, and offered the sage advice he gave his wife, specifically, get a shot gun and if you hear a noise, go out on the back porch and fire a couple of blasts. Note to Girl Scouts: don’t show up unannounced at the Biden house!

Could that shotgun, which the clearly clueless Mr. Biden thinks is easier to shoot than an AR-15, be banned by the Obama administration? Yes, it could, according to David Kopel, Research Director of Colorado’s Independence Institute, Adjunct Professor of Advanced Constitutional Law, Denver University, Sturm College of Law, and one of America’s leading experts  on the 2nd Amendment. He’ll join us, and share his thoughts about what the Obama administration has in mind to trample on our 2nd Amendment rights.

Sadly, our hopes of ridding America of the scourge of Obamacare, at least anytime soon, evaporated last November with the re-election of Barack Obama. Now that we’re stuck with it, how will it affect you and your family?We’ll get answers from someone who has been fighting the federal government’s takeover of our health care system for over 20 years, Dr. Betsy McCaughey. Her new book, Beating Obamacare, is an essential handbook for protecting yourself. Despite what Nancy Pelosi said, you don’t have to read the law to find out what’s in it. We’l tell you today.

Barack Obama put on a clinic in demagoguery earlier this week, shaking his fists over the scary “sequester,” that even Jay Carney has admitted was his idea. The administration’s point man on the Sunday morning shows is the poster boy for the fact that politics is the last refuge of the mediocre, the buffoonish “Republican” Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood. He goes on the Sunday shows, and hilarity ensues.

It’s Oscar Sunday, and it’s clear now why so many in Hollywood love the film “Lincoln.” Plus Producer Thomas’ list of conservative movies you’d love to see.

Tune in today for the rest of the story.

Best Performance by an Insufferable Gasbag in a Non-Supporting (as in America) Role, among other awards: Today on the Teri O’Brien Show

Do politicians, public officials and celebutards say stupid, and even insane, things on a stunningly regular basis? Of course they do! On this Oscar Sunday, we’ll revisit some of these unfortunate comments, which are unfortunate for them, but hilarious for us! What’s your favorite? Jeb Bush’s recent “I used to be a conservative?” The moronic “Warren Buffett and Debbie Show,” featuring a false narrative about the “unfairness” at play in our tax system? Anything that Sean Penn has said in the last five years? And, no, we aren’t going to leave out our Dear Reader. He may even earn his own category.

Of course, disaster movies are a classic Hollywood genre, and thanks to the Obama economy, many Americans are starring in their own personal versions of “Titanic.” In 2009, the democrats gave us the mother of all public policy disasters for this country, the Orwellian-named “Affordable Care Act.” Today’s guest, Grace Marie Turner President of the Galen Institute and co-author of Why Obamacare Is Wrong for America, knows Obamacare inside and out, and we’ll ask her whether there is any way to get our country on a lifeboat.

One year after his death, the family of murdered ICE agent Jaime Zapata is still waiting for answers, even though on January 30 a man was sentenced  to 100 months for trafficking in a weapon involved in the crime. Speaking of waiting, we’re eagerly anticipating Eric Holder’s explanation, even though the weapon was part of Operation Fast and Furious.

Join us Sunday for the rest of the story.
