The "Talking Points Memo" focused on Senator Rand Paul's filibuster and the strange bedfellows that emerged from this historic Senate event.
Ingraham spoke to Mark Hannah about Samira Ibrahim who was going to receive an award from the State Department until she made reprehensible remarks against the US and Jews as reported by the Weekly Standard. Foreign aid money for Egypt was also discussed, even as President Morsi makes equally reprehensible remarks.
Ingraham talked to Bob Hemer and Bob Dane about hate groups as deemed by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Dane dubbed them a far left fundraising McCarthy-like group. Heimer said he's seen real hatred from groups such as NAMBLA and the Aryan Brotherhood and said there's a difference between passionate right wing groups and hate groups. Dain said left wing groups blur the differences between passionate and hate groups.
Ingraham talked to Alexandra Brodsky and Gloria Malone about ads critical of teen pregnancy. Malone is a teen mother and feels stigmatized and shamed by the ads. Brodsky thinks it is condescending, bad policy and is unhelpful. Ingraham commended Malone for keeping her baby rather than seeking an abortion which these ads could prompt.
Ingraham discussed economic issues with Lou Dobbs. Both slammed Minority Leader Pelosi and President Obama's spending and their criticism of oil company subsidies. Dobbs said the effective corproate tax rate is 17%. He said the jobs report indicates a real recovery, but that the real unemployment rate is 14.3%. He said it is a time to be in the stock market.
Ingraham asked Chip Saltsman and Tara Dowdell if terror suspects should be tried in the US. Dowdell said we've been trying terror suspects in civiilan courts already. Saltsman said Senator Graham that terror suspects should go to Guantanamo Bay. Dowdell said politicians don't like those who skip in line such as Rand Paul and Barack Obama. Saltsman praised Paul for promoting an issue that was close to his father Ron Paul.
Ingraham talked Sarah Moriarity to whose father, former FBI agent Bob Levinson, has been held in Iran for six years. Moriarity said her father is a hostage and efforts won't be enough until he's home. Ingraham noted that few know about this case.
