Bradbery said she got her start at a church festival where she overcame her shyness. She looks up to the Swon Brothers. She said her dad encouraged her and always had country music playing such as Billy Ray Cyrus and George Strait.
Bradbery couldn't reveal her song for Monday's show but said it is a little bit of old and new country music. Ingraham encouraged her to listen to the older legends and said many people think she's going all the way.
The "Ingraham Angle" with Laura Ingraham on "The O'Reilly Factor" centered on political bias in commencement speakers.
O'Reilly noted that only four conservatives were invited to speak at college commencements. Ingraham said the fact is that all viewpoints should get a fair hearing isn't the case and is an example of liberal totalitarianism. Both Ingraham and O'Reilly blamed cowardice among college officials with not attempting to present a fair and balanced program.
Ingraham believes Attorney General Eric Holder will not be on the job much longer due to his connection to recent scandals and his poor performance.
West went back to the day that President Roosevelt recognized the USSR based on promises of not subverting the US which was untrue. She sees a parallel to the conditioning the US is getting today with Islam. She said in both cases people who criticized communism and Islam have been castigated to ostracize these ideas and people.
West was inspired by truth tellers in the past. She spoke of the Alger Hiss and Whitaker Chambers hearings where Hiss was putting forth powerful baldface lies. The Truman administration was complicit in ostracizing Chambers and buying into Hiss's lies.
West cited Marx, Lenin and Saul Alinsky as the agents of making their enemies toxic via political correctness.
Campos Duffy said she's been reporting on the sexualization of children for a long time. She's less worried about the transgender issue than the rise in unmarriageable men which penalizes poor and minority women. Ingraham pointed to the political aspect to children's programming which goes hand in hand with the push going on in the schools. She said it's not about tolerance, but about celebrating the politically correct viewpoint.
Campos Duffy said the Christian community needs to speak out about the negative outcomes of this all with men be demasculinized and women taking all the responsibility in the family. She thinks women want real men who want to provide for their families.
Ingraham blamed women for allowing this to happen. Campos Duffy said there are so many boys without male role models in the home. She assigns certain tasks to her children that are more gender appropriate. She said she and her husband make a concerted effort to make sure their boys get a lot of dad time.
President Obama’s older half-brother Malik Abongo“Roy” Obama is selling two of Barack’s handwritten letters to his relatives in Kenya for $15,000 each, Page Six has exclusively learned. Malik is selling the two letters on White House-headed note paper, which both say, “Thanks for your prayers and support” and are signed “B.O.” They’re for sale through US collector Gary Zimet’s Momentsintime.com. Zimet told us, “I wrote to Malik and didn’t know if I would get a response. I was astonished when I did. I sent a letter to a post office box in Kenya. I asked him if he had any letters from his brother. I didn’t expect to hear from him ever, but he wrote back and said, ‘I have two letters.’ These letters show great interest on the president’s part in his family, they are priced at $15,000 each. We didn’t go too much into Malik’s relationship with his half-brother, I got a sense it was cordial but not overly warm.” Malik, 55, is the son of Barack Obama Sr., with his first wife and lives in the village of Nyang’oma Kogelo, the Obamas’ ancestral home. Malik and Barack were best men at each other’s weddings, but Malik is reported to have 12 wives, so it’s uncertain if the president made it to every wedding. Malik, who set up an American charity that claims to support poor Kenyans in 2008 when his kin was running for the White House, has his own political aspirations but was recently defeated in his bid to be governor of Kenya’s Siaya County. Malik was also accused of fraud over the charity, the Barack H. Obama Foundation, in 2011, after a watchdog accused the organization of advertising that it had nonprofit status when it allegedly didn’t. But this month it was revealed that Lois Lerner, the IRS official at the center of the Tea Party scandal, signed papers granting the foundation tax-exempt status within a month of filing in 2011, while other conservative organizations had been waiting for years for approval.
DiGenova doesn't agree with Michael Gerson that Attorney General Eric Hlder is incompetent and that he is a birght person. He feels Holder was looking to be aggressive and Ingraham said he's an idealogue with a dark view of America.
DiGenova said it's been a poor tenure as attorney general and that he's even judged a disaster by the Democrats. He said Holder will dissemble when testifying. He thinks Holder will resign in the next 60 days when and if James Comey is appointed FBI director.
DiGenova said the IRS will be tied up with lawsuits over the Tea Party hounding scandal, especially with IRS operative Shulman being at the White House more than any cabinet members. He and Ingraham commented on the arrogance during testimony on this issue. He thinks this scandal will make it impossible for Obama to govern.
, Laura Ingraham hosted Camille Paglia, author of "Glittering Images".
Paglia said her book is for people who know nothing about art. She has a religious attitude toward art and feels that snobbish artists in New York City have turned off the public with bizarre works.
Paglia said bondage and S & M have suffused the culture topped by Harvard approving a bondage/sado-machochism club. She said this has made sex boring with the normal relationships between mena nd women have gone cold. She said masculinity is only recognized negatively as oppressive. Women have become high achievering and uninteresting to men. She stated that romance is dead and that sex is a wasteland for young people. She blames the overpriced college curriculum that gets translated to the work place. She said it is spiritual emptiness with cynical snark dominating the culture with no respect for anything.
Paglia said there is no sense of grandeur which is gone today. She finds Tina Fey totally unfunny along with other comedians.
Laura Ingraham hosted James Lipton of "Inside the Actors' Studio" and its 250th episode.
Lipton said his show is like a master class for students. He also doesn't allow gossip which makes the show the most intimate. He does all the show prep himself, pouring hours into details of the craft. His show on Bravo is in 90 million homes in many countries and is going into its 20th year.
Lipton said Marlon Brando hated acting and became very reclusive and thus didn't appear on the show. He said young stars today don't get to learn their trade as the young demo dominates the box office and thus young stars are pushed to perform too early.
Lipton spoke of his life in Paris after World War II when there were no jobs. He said many young people were in the media to get work and he had a platonic relationship with. He became a facilitator for sex with young women, unlike a pimp who abuse women.

Simon said of the three big scandals facing the White House, the Benghazi one is the most serious. Due to his writings on the subject, he has heard that some ex State Department and military members are consulting lawyers with an eye to becoming whistle blowers on Benghazi. These people weren't on the ground in Libya, but have information.
Ingraham and Simon noted that General Petraeus hasn't been called and that he had reservations about the situation. Ingraham stated it was a bit too convenient that the Paula Broadwell affair scandal erupted.
