SO HAPPY TO HAVE LOTS OF GUESTS SCHEDULED TODAY Ed Hart will join me right out of the shoot to talk about re opening Kentucky Kingdom, Rep. Thomas Massie at 9:45 on gun control and the debt ceiling mess. And wrapping up the day at 11:15 with Congressman Yarmuth. Phew.
SANDY HOOK EXPOSED DEBUNKED I've had so many people email me the Sandy Hook exposed video and asking me for comment, but truthfully, I was hoping it would just go away. I know that the Democrats never let a good crisis go to waste, but even I can't buy into conspiracy theories that cherry pick certain information and ignore the multitude of things that prove them wrong.

DIANNE FEINSTEIN THINKS GOD WANTS TO BAN GUNS Dianne Feinstein brought a clergyman to her press conference as she unveiled the strictest gun control law ever. Here's hoping members of Congress recognize how egregious and totally ineffective this law would be, in addition to being unnecessarily obtrusive and cumbersome to law abiding gun owners. But hey, she's decided God is on her side. The abortion lobby must be horrified, as they've been telling us for years God has no place in government.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO JOHN KERRY'S FACE? Did you happen to see any of his confirmation hearing? His face looks like it's made of stone. It's totally weird. He looks like a muppet. Why is that? Anyone notice this? Oh, and Rand Paul made quite the statement on John Kerry's past political protests vs. his support of this President's similar actions. Rand Paul is doing the things every other politician is too scared to do.
UNION MEMBERSHIP IS ON THE SLIDE Of course there will be some proposal to prop up the dying unions by the Democrats. Maybe a bailout, or a grant program. They can't let unions go belly up because then they would have to find another way to launder money through to their party.
