Constitutional Speaker on KCAA Sun, Nov 20, 2011


The podcast is available for Sunday's incredible show with Bob Rinear of InvestYourself.com. Bob's discussion about the danger the marriage of government and international bankers has posed, and how these forces have worked together to bring the world economies to the brink of destruction, will educate you in ways I can't explain.

During the program I also answered the question: Is the Space Program Constitutional?

During the second half of the show JASmius and I went through the 5 Big Stories of the Week, November 20, 2011:

Nuts and Nuggets

Nut: European Union - After a 3 year study the EU leaders have decided that bottled water manufacturers will not be allowed to make the claim that water can prevent dehydration because they say they found no evidence that water hydrates.

Nugget: A top House Republican is threatening to enforce a subpoena for criminal immigrant information "to the fullest extent" of the law, after claiming the Obama administration "stonewalled" his request.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith for months has been seeking a comprehensive list of names and other information for the thousands of immigrants who are flagged, but not taken into custody or deported through a program known as Secure Communities.

Earlier this month, a subcommittee on his panel subpoenaed the Department of Homeland Security for the information, claiming it was "not acting in good faith." It was the first subpoena issued by the committee since it came under GOP control.

The department ended up turning over documents by a Nov. 10 deadline -- but Smith claimed all he received was a list of numbers.

"Instead of providing this information, all DHS gave was a list numbered 1 through 220,995. Proving the administration can count is not what we asked for," Smith said in a statement.

He wrote a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Friday urging her to "immediately comply" with the subpoena.

"If you do not, the committee will be forced to seek enforcement of the subpoena to the fullest extent allowed by the law," Smith wrote.

re: "The department ended up turning over documents by a Nov. 10 deadline -- but Smith claimed all he received was a list of numbers."

I think they should carefully go through the list of numbers and make sure there are none missing. The Department of Homeland Security might be trying to hide something.
