Malkin spoke about the Jefferson County, Colorado around Denver where a conservative school board got elected and put in a teacher incentive program for excelence and an emphasis on a positive outlook on America in the curriculum. She said rank and file teachers are upset with the Common Core push from the federal government. It is a battle between local control and government control with children being trained to be future liberal voters.
Malkin said the genesis of the enterovirus is unknown but wonders if this could be coming via people crossing the borders illegally.
Cassidy said President Obama does things that are bad for the country, but are helping his campaign. He explained there is an open primary on November 4th and that the winner must get 50% to move ahead.
Cassidy said he would not be in favor of any executive action by President Obama on immigration and that the borders must be secured. He said that the DACA unaccompanied minors should be processed within a few weeks and send them back home. Ingraham said this is the issue the people care about as it affects their wages and jobs. Cassidy said it is also compassionate to the immigrant families to not encourage them to make the dangerous trek here and Ingraham said the government put out the magnet for bringing in illegal immigrants. Cassidy doesn't favor adding more guest workers. Cassidy added that his opponent Mary Landrieu supports Obamacare, comprehensive immigration reform and not increasing energy production. He said he favors prosperity for all, not government dependency.
Higginbotham, par† of Florida RISE, is concerned aobut the great number of standardized tests that is invasive with questions that steer children into different categories. These tests aren't to find out what children know and are tied to teachers' salaries. The tests will be given even in art and physical education. She said Florida's test questions are being created in Utah. The FSA (Florida State Assessment) tests will be given in the spring with multiple tests. She pointed to the "Race to the Top" funds are given to the state which allow the state's data to go righ† the Department of Education.
Bridenstine said none of the Oklahoma delegation has been spoken to about the behading of a woman at the workplace by a former worker who is a jihadist. He pointed out that his state isn't on the border or thought of as a state that would harbor terrorists. He said the issue needs to be addressed without political correctness and while we shouldn't vet entrants into the US based on religion, it should be robust to ferret out terrorists. Ingraham praised Mark Vaughn who took out the behader and asked where Attorney General Eric Holder or President Obama have been in regard to this issue. Both Ingraham and Bridenstine deemed Vaughn a hero.
Vitter agreed with Ingraham that there are many games played on continuing resolutions for military force in Syria against ISIS, but that the dangers are great enough, action must be taken. Ingraham said that if President Obama thought the threat was that great, the borders would be sealed and that the Constitution should be followed so that Congress votes on war.
Attkisson thought it interesting that Attorney General Eric Holder is leaving the administration amid the Lois Lerner, Fast and Furious scandal. She does feel she received some blowback for coverning these stories but no more than anyone else who does tough reporting. She cited the Fast and Furious scandal and the targeting of journalists as Holder's most egregious actions.
Roberts complimented Governor Sarah Palin's appearance on his behalf and he extended an invitation to Ingraham. Ingraham noted that Roberts is strong on the problem of comprehensive immigration reform. Roberts commented that his opponent is for amnesty. He said he is not for importing more workers when Americans need better jobs and wages. Ingraham encouraged him to stand stronger on his views on this.
Roberts said he's the Senate's oldest Marine and spoke of how he stood up to Majority Leader Reid on his abuse of the First Amendment. He said he's been a conservative for all his service and that his opponent will say and do anything to get elected, in kahoots with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
O'Reilly said his book is about the last six moths of World War II in Europe. He went on a hunging trip when his vehicle was hit. He was taken to the hospital where he was set to recover, but was dead the next day with fast burial in Luxumbourg. He said if the soldiers were killed overseas then. O'Reilly believes he was murdered as he had many enemies such as General Eisenhower who never fought in battle. He spoke of the Potsdam Conference and that Patton knew Stalin was not our friend. He noted that we don't have a general today of Patton's stature. He feels this set the stage for the rise of such people as Putin. He said he's not a conspiracy theorist, but thinks there are lots of questions about his death and that these questions need to be answered. He said Patton wouldn't play today's political games and saved many lives due to his audacity. He spoke of the weird practices of Hitler as well.
Coburn criticized the continuing resolution to undergo airstrikes in the Middle East without any means to pay for it as we are billions in the hole. Basically the American people have been lied to. He said there hasn't been one appropriation bill in the Senate this year as Majority Leader Reid hasn't allowed it. Ingraham said it's hiding the ball from the American peoole and Coburn said there will be a $17 trillion bill due. He feels he will have more of an impact outside the Senate than within it when he retires. He fingers the career politicians and called for sending up regular, experienced, honest people and that there are fewer career GOP politicians. Coburn said Social Security Disability is nearly unfunded and Medicare is not far behind. He decried how Washington can't begin to estimate the costs of our wars and domestic spending.
