KILMEADE KONDENSED: 10/14/14
Listen here for the Kilmeade Montage of the day
HOUR 1 Star of History Channel's "Pawn Stars" RICK HARRISON talked to Brian about the difficulties surrounding getting businesses started and how too many taxes are killing business and people wanting to start. It's hard to run companies and plan your business because you don't know what your taxes are going to be the next year because they always change them.
Rick also talked about promoting a healthier America talking about how he found out he had VERY HIGH triglycerides and how he has partnered up with lower my trigs, www.lowermytrigs.com, to educate the public on how to live a healthier life.
HOUR 2 Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute ARTHUR HERMAN explained that our strategy against ISIS is definitely not working and is an embarrassment to the administration. The Strategy is a political one and they are just looking at polls to take action and that is why the military advisers are at such odds with how we are fighting ISIS. Another problem that we have with our coalition is that none of the other countries are certain that Obama is really into fighting ISIS and winning the war. It is shocking how we are fighting this but what else would you expect from an administration that is always 2 steps behind. Until one of the top General's resigns and says "that I can't go on with this", things will not change.
Fox News national security correspondent JENNIFER GRIFFIN came on the air to tell us that ISIS has actually turned around and is very close to taking a very important strategic airbase near Baghdad. ISIS is being very sophisticated in what they are going to do, they are taking ground around Baghdad and the Baghdad airport and will lob artillery and begin daily bombings to make life there unable. If the Iraqi military does not stand up, although ISIS will not be able to take over and hold Baghdad, they will make life difficult. Although the administration says they are arming the Kurds, we have seen this before, the administration leaks promises but it never happens.
HOUR 3 GOP strategist ED ROLLINS checked in to talk about the mid-term elections and how South Dakota should stay GOP even though the Democratic Party has thrown tons of money there. Ed said that he was also really impressed by Joni Ernst and that if she wins she will become a major political figure.
If former Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AK) runs as an independent he will create chaos within the GOP and the 2016 presidential election.
The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson host, GRETCHEN CARLSON, dropped by and weighed in on the problems with ISIS in the Middle East, the possibility of Ebola spreading and possibly reaching to 10,000.
