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 - http://washingtonindependent.com/49616/tea-party-movement-loses-steam
We briefly discussed Cynthia McKinney current being imprisoned in Israel, you can read it here - http://www.infowars.com/cynthia-mckinney-im-in-jail-in-israel/
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!!) - http://digg.com/politics/Jon_Stewart_Blasts_Glenn_Beck_Michael_Scheuer

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 infowars.com,
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.
