Ellen graciously agreed to take my place during tomorrow night’s broadcast so I can attend another dear friend’s special birthday party. She always does a fabulous job as co-host, even though she rarely gives herself the credit she deserves; if you haven’t listened to her on the air before, you’re definitely in for a treat.
Also, Rep. Steve King’s appearance should be very interesting as the last time he was scheduled to be on our show in the segment preceding our excellent guest Harriet Parke, news of Senator Tom Harkin’s resignation broke, prompting King to cancel at the last minute. Is this honorable member of Congress planning a bid for the US Senate? Tune in tomorrow night at 6 p.m. Eastern to find out!
Last night Steve and I had the honor of interviewing returning guests and frequent Fox News contributors Mike Baker, former CIA operative and Lt. General Thomas McInerney. Our discussion focused mainly on Benghazi, although we also asked for their thoughts on Israel, which is now rightfully defending itself against bloody Muslim aggression; forthcoming sequestration and election consequences (as if we didn’t already know). Although both men offered their typically prescient analysis, one of the most breathtaking revelations was when I asked the Lt. General if American institutions had been overtaken by political correctness.
It’s been another busy week at ThePeoplesVote.com, which included among other things an excellent interview on the gold standard, quantitative easing and the Fed with Chris Kent of Numis Network. If you missed it, click below to listen.
Many thanks to Chris for enlightening the audience and me on this very important topic. I hope he can join us again very soon!
If you haven’t seen them yet, here are some fantastic political ads that deserve a look, the first from American Crossroads:
And this laugh-out-loud gem from Right Change, drawing the obvious comparisons between Barack Obama and Jimmy Carter:
This next one is not an ad in the strict sense of the term, but side-splitting nonetheless and very worthy of your 2+ minutes. From Steve Crowder and Chris Loesch:
On a very encouraging note, yesterday Gallup released its latest poll showing Romney well ahead of Obama 52-45% I am cautiously optimistic, preferring to work even harder — as if Romney were seven points behind. Complacency is one of the enemies of freedom, after all, and I am not about to throw away these past four years of accelerated political activism by letting up now.
On the other hand, Romney’s endorsements from two very liberal newspapers, the uber-progressive Tennesseean (a paper that hasn’t endorsed a Republican presidential candidate since 1972); and the Orlando Sentinel are sorta, kinda making me feel a bit like Chris Matthews’ leg, circa 2008.
Which reminds me: Eva Longoria, my patriot sisters and I will be voting with our “Lady Smarts” on Election Day not our #ladyparts, as I suspect most American women – who are quite capable of purchasing their own birth control and more concerned about the state of our economy and national security — are too. Please resume your make-believe life in the Hollywood bubble and let the grown-ups determine the fate of our country.
Has it really been 11 years since the worst attack on American soil? Hard to fathom and yet even more disheartening that so many have either forgotten or relegated this horrific event to the past, without regard to its significance and implications for the future of our national security.
Since I want to honor all of the heroes murdered on 9/11 on this anniversary, I will abstain from further political comment and simply link to others who are also honoring those lost on that day due to an evil act by a totalitarian ideology.
One thing that makes my heart happy out of all the loss and sorrow that happened on that terrible day, is the way we all came together as Americans. How as a Nation we all Stood as One. As a New Yorker it was overwhelming to see first responders, elected officials, and every day people stepping in and stepping up, just diving in to help without pause.
It is very hard to lose the ones we love, but love never ends, and love never forgets. I believe the ones we love are never really far away, they live on in each and every one of us. We carry them with us in our daily lives until we meet them again in heaven.

Speaking of talented patriots, here’s a beautiful 9/11 ballad from Lisa Mei Norton:
