KILMEADE KONDENSED: 10/17/14
Listen here for the Kilmeade Montage of the day
HOUR 1 Wall Street Journal journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner BRET STEPHNS dropped by and talked about Ebola and how like everything else the President is doing it's a day late and a dollar short.
Unequal CEO ROB VITO and CME JIM CALDWELL dropped in and talked about how their company has taken Kevlar to use in sporting equipment to protect against concussions. They talked about their patent involving Kevlar that helps absorb shock and take a lot of the danger in the big hits. They have equipment for sports like football, baseball, soccer, hockey etc. Rob reiterated that they cannot prevent concussions but they mitigate them.
HOUR 2 New Hampshire Senate candidate former Senator SCOTT BROWN (R-MA) checked in to tell us about his campaign and how he was able to jump ahead in his race when he was all but counted out. Former Senator Brown also talked about Ebola and said that even though he want President Obama to succeed in fighting the disease he feels that we are being a little too politically correct by not banning flights from the 3 countries with the outbreak. Senator Brown also talked about his foreign policies and the differences between him and his opponent.
Chairman of the NRCC Rep. GREG WALDEN (R-OR) checked in and talked about the mid-term battles and how it is looking better for the GOP to take over the House. Walden also talked about how the failed policies of the President are definitely on the ballot. The Congressman also talked about how the President has not been able to handle ISIS and Ebola, just to name a few.
Fox News Digital Politics Editor CHRIS STIERWALT checked in and talked with Brian about President Obama naming Ron Klain the Ebola Czar. Klain was the Chief of Staff of Both Vice Presidents Biden and Gore. Klain is a Democratic fixer and party loyalist which is very revealing of the administration because they put a lawyer and fixer which only means they believe they have a political problem. Chris would like to have seen someone go in that is non-partisan and a health care professional or retired General. Chris and Brian also talked about the mid-terms and what each party is hoping will occur, including Senator Scot Brown's race and how he will need another gust to push him past his opponent.
HOUR 3 United States Air Force Lt. General RICHARD NEWTON (Ret) dropped by and explained that he agreed with Admiral Kirby that you can't say whether we are winning or losing the fight with ISIS because it is going to be a long fight that will take years. His perspective over the air campaign against ISIS is that you need to have an effective air power and not putting limits on the strikes. We need a full court effort and not a half-court game. On the situation with Turkey he thinks it is interesting because we really need to know if they are going to be a full time partner in the fight against terror. The problem is that they hate the Kurds and Assad more than ISIS. On Iraq he agreed with General Keane (Ret) that ISIS will not take over Baghdad but they will try to isolate the capital from the rest of the country and keep them from governing so the people. Brian asked General Newton is the current generals feel that they are going to get blamed by President Obama if his restricted battle plan against ISIS fails.
Fox News contributor and Nerdtears.com's KEVIN MCCARTHY checked in with some new weekend movies with star power, "Fury" starring Brad Pitt and "St. Vincent" starring Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy. Kevin gave "Fury" 4 out of 5 stars and enjoyed it although it doesn't reach the greatness of classic WWII movies like "Saving Private Ryan". He talked about "St. Vincent" and how Bill Murray is getting heavy Oscar buzz. The movie he gave a 5 out of 5 is "Whiplash" a drama about a young man and how he is being brought to the breaking point while in music school.
