Come and Take It Radio 07/05/2009

Happy Independence Day everyone, thanks for listening! We began the show discussing the current "Tea Party Movement" and an article by The Washington Independent stating that the movement is losing steam. In reality, FOX and the MSM destroyed the tea party movement by turning it into a big ANTI-Obama, big GOP agenda which is not what the tea party movement was supposed to be about. That article can be found here -

We briefly discussed Cynthia McKinney current being imprisoned in Israel, you can read it here -

We then play a clip from The Daily Show where Jon Stewart blasts Glenn Beck and Michael Scheuer for promoting the slaughtering of Americans. Here is a great piece on Huffington Post (DIGG IT!!) -
and you can watch the clip here -

In the 2nd hour we discuss a few bills that we need you to call your US Senators on now that they are back to work.

The first act is the Pass Act S.1261, according to an article on,

The senate committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs will be considering the legislation very soon.

The PASS Act does not repeal the Real ID Act. It does repeal provisions of the Real ID Act; those provisions that are included in Title II of the Real ID Act 2005. The Real ID Act is still intact and is federal law.

The PASS Act contains many of the most egregious aspects of the Real ID Act; including the requirement for a digital facial image/photograph that will be mandated to be internationally facial recognition compatible.

Read the rest here - and watch the Reality Report w/Gary Franchi here - and Restore the Republic also has a piece comparing the Pass ct and Read ID Act which you can find here -

"This is the Waxman-Markley comprehensive energy bill, known for short as "ACES," that includes a cap-and-trade global warming reduction plan designed to reduce economy-wide greenhouse gas emissions 17 percent by 2020. Other provisions include new renewable requirements for utilities, studies and incentives regarding new carbon capture and sequestration technologies, energy efficiency incentives for homes and buildings, and grants for green jobs, among other things."
