After this we discuss the current situation in Iran. We didnt really reference too much on the internet, this is from watching the "news" all morning on Fox. We also discussed the poll they displayed regarding countries that pose a threat to the US, with North Korea at the top with 38%. We also read a short article from the AP regarding the possibility of a missile test by N Korea over the 4th of July weekend.
here is the piece -
WASHINGTON (AP) — Defense Secretary Robert Gates says he's positioning defenses near Hawaii just in case North Korea fires a missile across the Pacific toward the island state.
Gates says he's sent the military's ground-based mobile missile system to Hawaii, and positioned a radar system nearby. Together the systems theoretically could detect and shoot down a North Korean missile if it came to that.
Gates says the U.S. is watching the North's moves very closely. He says there is concern about a potential launch toward Hawaii, although he did not spell out how extensive the U.S. thinks the threat might be.
A Japanese newspaper reported Thursday that North Korea might fire its most advanced ballistic missile toward Hawaii around the Fourth of July holiday.

We took a break and discussed how we will be moving to 9-11pm CST as of June 28th. We think this time will be a much better time slot for listeners.
From there we discussed London Telegraph's article -
'Iran elections: Google and Facebook launch Farsi services to aid protester' which can be found here - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/scienceandtechnology/technology/google/5580847/Iran-elections-Google-and-Facebook-launch-Farsi-services-to-aid-protesters.html

This brings us to discuss this weeks Regulatory Plan by Obama that will strengthen the Federal Reserve. According to The Wall Street Jourmal Online,
A movement is spreading in Congress to force the Fed to disclose the identity of institutions that borrow from the bank, a move officials say would discourage firms from seeking needed emergency funds. A large group of House members is pushing to audit the Fed.

This also took us to NASA acknowledging the Solor Cycle, not man, responsible for past warming.
"Some researchers believe that the solar cycle influences global climate changes. They attribute recent warming trends to cyclic variation. Skeptics, though, argue that there's little hard evidence of a solar hand in recent climate changes."
You can find the entire article here - http://www.dailytech.com/NASA%20Study%20Acknowledges%20Solar%20Cycle%20Not%20Man%20Responsible%20for%20Past%20Warming/article15310.htm
Suprisingly we spent the first hour of the show on various global warming, green, save the earth commentary - as both of us think this "Green Revolution" is going to be another way to tax us. We were on the "green" bandwagon WAY before all this came around and its a bit annoying now.
In Hour 2 of the program, we went back to our major topic of last week's show, Judge Sonia Sotomayor. Evidently she is a member of the female version of Bohemian Grove. Coming to us from Politico.com, 'Sotomayor found friends in elite group'.
Belizean Grove is an elite but little-known women's-only group.
The group — which on its website describes itself as “a constellation of influential women who are key decision makers in the profit, nonprofit and social sectors; who build long-term, mutually beneficial relationships in order to both take charge of their own destinies and help others to do the same” — hosts periodic meetings around New York, as well as an annual off-the-record three-day retreat in Central or South America at which its members attend cocktail parties with U.S. diplomats and host-country officials and participate in panel discussions on public policy and business affairs.

If you are unfamiliar with Bohemian Grove, here's a great video by Alex Jones.

We also mentioned the failing anti-gun strategy of the Obama Administration through the Congress, so now they are trying to stack the Courts with "liberal anti-gunners" - according to the Citizens Committee to the Right to Keep and Bare Arms. That article can be found here - http://www.ccrkba.org/pub/rkba/press-releases/court.stack.htm
We move to brighter news, like 'Despite Recent Violence, Gun Laws Are Softening' featured on Parade.com. There is also a poll on the article titled "Should states loosen restrictions on guns?" Go to http://www.parade.com/news/intelligence-report/archive/despite-recent-violence-gun-laws-are-softening.html for the article and poll.
According to the article,
'Gun-control advocates argue that weakening laws is disastrous. While it wouldn't necessarily lead to more mass shootings, they say, it would almost certainly increase the number of gun-related murders in the U.S. There are currently more than 11,500 each year, and America has one of the world's highest firearm homicide rates. Per capita, our rate is 39 times greater than that of England, 13 times Australia's, and 6 times Canada's.'
This leads us to an ABC NEWS article claiming a 'River' of U.S. Guns Also Flows North of the Border. According to the article,
"These guns are causing people to die on the streets of Toronto, and they come about because the U.S. gun laws are so lax, and it's very difficult to stop the guns at the border," Toronto Mayor David Miller says.
