- The Washington Times - Tuesday, August 11, 2009


In case you didn’t tune into The Washington Times’ nationally syndicated radio show “America’s Morning News” - heard in Washington on WTNT-AM 570 and coast-to-coast via the Talk Radio Network - here’s what just a few of Monday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

• Former Rep. Ernest Istook, Oklahoma Republican and distinguished fellow at the Heritage Foundation: Mr. Istook kicked off a weeklong series on “Obamacare” and detailed the left’s counterstrategy to protests at town-hall meetings, including a memo from Health Care for America Now that urges members to shout-down protesters.

• Michelle Malkin, conservative columnist: She surmised that some Democratic congressmen have chosen not to hold face-to-face town-hall meetings on their own party’s health care reform plan because, like other Americans, they don’t understand many of the package’s proposals.

• Michael Franc, vice president for government relations at the Heritage Foundation: Don’t look now, but Phase II of “Obamacare” has begun, even though Phase I is still being debated, if not misunderstood, Mr. Franc said.

• Steven Kohn, executive director of the National Whistleblowers Center: He explained that, despite its pledge to better protect federal employees who expose wrongdoing, the Obama administration privately sought to weaken protections for national security whistleblowers.
