Today on the Jerry Doyle Show: Diana West, Syndicated columnist for the Washington Examiner and author The Death of the Grown-up: How America's Arrested Development Is Bringing Down Western Civilization joins us at 130 Pacific to talk about her latest work:
Libyan rebels are a rogues' gallery, : Libya: Blood for Oil parts 1 & 2…

 

Here are three things Americans need to know about the Libyan "rebels" that the U.S. government isn't telling us. 

One: The inspiration of the Libyan war is as much anti-Western as it is anti-Gadhafi. 

The "Day of Rage" that kick-started the Libyan war on Feb. 17 marked the fifth anniversary of violent protests in Benghazi, which included an assault on the Italian consulate during which at least 11 were killed. The 2006 mayhem, as John Rosenthal has reported, during which consulate staff was evacuated after 1,000 to several thousand men tried to storm and burn the building, may be linked to the Italian TV appearance two days earlier of Italian minister Roberto Calderoli. It was then that Calderoli, in defiance of worldwide Islamic rioting against cartoons of Muhammad in a tiny Danish newspaper, revealed he was wearing an undershirt decorated with such a cartoon. In remarks widely reported in Arab media, Calderoli explained that "the gesture was a matter of a 'battle for freedom.'" The minister said: "When they (the cartoon rioters) recognize our rights, I'll take off the shirt." 

Unfortunately — and not just for the Italian minister — Calderoli's boss, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, didn't recognize those rights. One day after the Benghazi rioting ("We feared for our lives," the consul general's wife told the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera), Calderoli resigned, a political collapse indicative of Western tendencies to renounce rights that conflict with Islamic law (Shariah).

Hr. 3~ Bill Wilson, ALG President (Americans for Limited Government) Joins us at 230 Pacific to talk about his latest at netrightdaily.com: Buffett’s Billion-Dollar Tax Hypocrisy…

 

By Bill Wilson — Writing for the New York Times recently, Berkshire Hathaway chairman and chief executive Warren Buffett called for taxes to be increased on the so-called “super-rich,” suggesting that he and his elite billionaire and millionaire friends are itching to pay more. 

Buffett wrote, “Most wouldn’t mind being told to pay more in taxes as well, particularly when so many of their fellow citizens are truly suffering.” 

Of course, if that’s the case, why doesn’t Buffett’s company settle its own ongoing tax disputes with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)? As Americans for Limited Government (ALG) has reported exclusively — a story given national attention by a New York Post editorial — according to Berkshire Hathaway’s own annual report, the company has been embroiled in an ongoing standoff over its tax bills.
