The "Talking Points" Memo focused on the unholy alliance between the White Houes and Congress members in skirting current immigration
Ingraham followed up with Michael Grant and Joe Dwinell of the Boston Herald about the Boston Marathon terrorists cold blooded plans for mass violence. It was pointed out the Tsarnaev family was on massive benefits up to $100,000 and that the Tamerlan's wife must have had an inkling of what was going on. Ingraham cited political correctness and it was again noted that no friends or family notified the authorities when the identities of the perps was known.
Ingraham spoke to Fox New contributor Jacques DeGraff about the media's preferential treatment of President Obama and liberal African-Americans versus their animosity toward conservatives as articulated by Justice Clarence Thomas during a recent interview.
Ingraham talked to Democratic pollster Margie Omero about the early push to proclaim Hillary Clinton as the inevitable Democratic presidential nominee in 2016. It was mentioned the tremendous amount of campaigning Bill Clinton did for President Obama in 2012 to ensure his re-election and that the chips will be called in if Hillary decides to run.
Ingraham spoke to "They Come to America II" documentarian Dennis Michael Lynch and immigration rights advocate Enrique Morones about President Obama's contention that the border is stronger than ever in controlling illegal entry into the United States.
Ingraham, in the "Fridays with Geraldo" segment, discussed the disturbing case of a Russian immigrant couple who took their infant to a California hospital, left to seek a second opinion on his condition and had their child taken from them. Ingraham commented on the irony of this couple leaving a repressive regime in Russia only to have such a heavy handed incident happen here in the US.
Ingraham and talk radio host Mike Gallagher discussed actress Reese Witherspoon's recent DUI arrest as demonstrated on the dash board cam of the police's vehicle. Gallagher defended Witherspoon's quick and seemingly sincere apologies for her unacceptable conduct toward the police.
Laura Ingraham hosted Martin Mawyer of Christian Action Network and author of "Twilight in America".
Mawyer said money had to come from somewhere to procur the large numbers of weapons the Tsarnaev brothers did. He commented on the large number of training centers even in the US and that the FBI is demmed useless by local law enforcement. Ingraham commented that we need more rigorous procedures in tracking foreigners here on visas.
Mawyer responded to criticisms that there are terror training camps in the US with specific details and again reiterated how useless the FBI is as they are under instruction not to due to political correctness. He is being sued by the "Muslims of America" group which is asking for $50 million to shut them down.
Ingraham and the hosts commented on the details emerging from the Boston Marathon Terror attack. She decried the Obama administration's lack of identifying such terror attacks what they are. She cited political correctness in the mainstream media that warps the understanding of what provokes these attacks, endangering the country.
Laura Ingraham hosted Roger Cressey, former National Security Director.
Cressey said that Russia's security services (FBS) should be interrogated as to Tamerlan Tsarnaev's activities in Russia during his visits there. He said the Tsarnaevs weren't members of a sleeper cell as their behaviors showed and that he finds the brothers' relationship as the key. Ingraham questioned why Chechens after September 11th were allowed into the US.
Cressey said it is important we learn the triggers to radicalization for national security purposes. He said anyone who is using violence along with religion is problematic and Ingraham cited Tom Brokaw's comments on Islamic rage.
Cressey is interested in what the overseas interest may have been involved.
Emerson said there is no doubt the second suspect will be caught and noted the Tsarnaev brothers came here under asylum provisions. He said the videos they posted are among the most radical he's ever seen and said their videos will be on their site.
Emerson and Ingraham spoke about the thousands of visa violations including many from Middle Eastern countries and that it's not just students. He said the Obama administration doesn't want to deport or prosecute these people.
Ingraham and Emerson spoke of the lack of assimilation among radical Muslims who want the US transformed and see Sharia law as above US law here. The heat is put on law enforcement to not break up cells or to oversee radicalism in mosques.
Spencer said there is lots of information about the Tsarnaev brothers jihad and Islamic ties on social media. Ingraham commented that even Attorney General Eric Holder has held back the focus on radical Islam. Spencer noted that political correctness allowed these brothers to enjoy the privileges of US society without assimilating US values. He said the jihadis pick and choose and can be culturally assimilated but still radicalized. Ingraham cited a Muslim friend who expressed regret over Islam being used for terror. Spencer said there isn't an effort by the Muslims to combat this sort of distortion of Islamic teachings.
Spencer and Ingraham criticized the new immigration bill that has loopholes for student visas as far as their potential radicalization. Spencer said it is very easy to be radicalized online and in the US without going overseas. He cited a study that 80% of mosques favor Sharia law trumping US law.
Gomez served in the Navy and is currently running for the Senate from Massachusetts. He was approaching the finish line at the Boston Marathon and saw the blasts. He knew right away that it wasn't normal. He offered thoughts and prayers to the victims.
Ingraham expressed concern about partisan comments and Gomez said politicians shouldn't be using this attack for such purposes is reprehensible. He and Ingraham talked of the need to name such acts as evil.
McCaul said the best way to prevent terror attacks is by intelligence ahead of time. He and Ingraham decried media pundits who are already making partisan accusations. He and Ingraham spoke about the risks on our border vis-a-vis allowing criminal and terror elements. McCall said the person of interest in the Boston Marathon terror attack is allegedly here on a student visa and that many of the visa overstayers are foreign students.
Ingraham spoke of the horror of the Boston Marathon terror attack and that she hopes we are all together with Boston today. The huge security demands were discussed versus freedom to have such events. Ingraham said we have been lucky to have not had terror attacks more often and that this one could have been worse.
Ingraham contrasted the joy of completing the race to the subsequent horror. She spoke of pride in the many acts of heroism by runners and first responders.
http://jihadjoe.net | A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a column for the New York Daily News on Al Qaeda's increasing shift in emphasis from bomb-based attacks to guns. American terrorist Adam Gadahn -- one of AQ's most prominent public faces -- recently put an exclamation point on the trend in a new video released online and excerpted here. For more on Gadahn read the new book, Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam,http://amzn.to/ahwBqH
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.
Gertz said there's been a big push for al-Qaeda to move into Northern Africa, especially in Mali which is largely ungoverned. He said a lot of the taxpayer money sent to these countries are in Swiss bank accounts of dictators and other thugs with Hillary Clinton waking up to the fact as she leaves the State Department. He said we aren't leading, but disengaging from Africa for Asia. He stated it's only a matter of time before radical factions regroup for more terror activity. There is concern Egypt will become another Islamic state like Iran.
Gertz said Gitmo parolees who were detained and released are working with the Syrian rebels.
Gertz noted CIA nominee John Brennan was silent on critical issues during his Senate confirmation hearings.
Laura Ingraham appeared on "Fox and Friends" to talk about President Obama's immigration push.
Ingraham said the immigration push is a done deal with support from the GOP and that the details are murky. She doesn't believe border security is a priority. She pointed to the DREAM Act being enacted by executive action, despite more deportations. Ingraham asked how this actually helps the middle class in the US and cited California as an example of wher it's not working. She noted that while immigrants pay taxes it is outweighed by the benefits they get off the tax system.
Ingraham thinks President Obama may use the staff that works for the NLRB to intimidate businesses to get around the setdown by the courts.
Ingraham commented on "60 Minutes" Steve Kroft acknowledging that Obama knew he wouldn't get tough questions from him during the Obama/Clinton interview.
