BRIAN’S QUOTE OF THE DAY
Brian on the murder of Chris Lane: “Why doesn’t the President know about this? Why wasn’t he read into this? Why did he not have an opinion on this? How could he send out his press secretary… and be asked questions and not have an answer of who Lane is?”
Former NSA and CIA Director GEN. MICHAEL HAYDEN cleared the air about the NSA seemingly going off-track and becoming increasingly more powerful with the personal information they can collect. Here’s what the General had to say:
“The people that want to do us harm – terrorists or proliferators or drug traffickers – they’re just using the same phones and e-mail systems that you and I are using. So what’s happened is the targets you want NSA to cover, their communications are out there co-existing with your e-mails and my phone calls. And the agency’s trying to figure out a way, it’s asking the American people to give it a little running room, to be able to go out and sort out the bad-guy calms from the protected – constitutionally protected – calms.”
SHANNON BREAM, weighed in on crossing red lines in Syria by the use of chemical weapons. “You’re going to continue to hear the denials from the Syrian government,” Bream said. She went on to say that she finds it interesting that the UN Security Council called an emergency meeting yesterday to talk about what to do and our UN Ambassador, Samantha Power did not show up to the meeting!
FOX News Sunday host CHRIS WALLACE talked to Brian about the red lines that were crossed in Syria, leaving thousands dead, including children. Wallace said it is smart for the President not to talk about it too much. “It seems like every two days the story changes,” Wallace explained, “From the President’s point of view, it’s probably not good to be out there.” He went on to exclaim that he is very conflicted with the issue.
FOX’s Chief White House Correspondent ED HENRY, who is currently on the road with President Obama’s bus tour, also weighed in on Jen Psaki’s “red lines” comment. “In fairness to the President, there’s no easy solution here,” Henry exclaimed, “But… it’s not his critics that are driving this, it’s the president’s own words on year ago this month.”
DR. BARRY KATZ, owner of Ektio Shoes, and basketball hall of famer JOHN STARKS, talked to Brian about their revolutionary new basketball shoe. Starks explained that their shoe is different from all other basketball shoes because it prevents your ankles from rolling and spraining. To get your own pair of Ektio shoes, you can order a pair online for 130 dollars.
JIM FREEDMAN, writer, producer and director of the upcoming HBO documentary ‘Glickman,’ talked to Brian today about the legendary voice behind the Knicks, Giants, and Jets. Freedman explained that he got his big industry break with Marty Glickman at the age of 17, and soon thereafter discovered his remarkable back-story.
Many people do not realize that Glickman was also an incredible track athlete, nicknamed “The Flatbush Flash.” “As an athlete, he was the third-fastest runner in the world at one time,” he said. After getting accepted to the 1936 Berlin Olympics, he was replaced at the last minute by the U.S. Olympic Committee to appease Adolf Hitler.
