- The Washington Times - Thursday, December 17, 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 three of Wednesday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

- Former Virginia Gov. James S. Gilmore III, president of the Free Congress Foundation: Having been appointed by President Clinton, Mr. Gilmore was heading a terrorism threat panel during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. On Wednesday, he predicted “problems up the road” after President Obama announced this week that terrorism suspects will be transferred from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to U.S. soil for imprisonment and to stand trial.

- Christopher Monckton, a key global-warming skeptic and chief policy adviser for the Science and Public Policy Institute: Speaking from Copenhagen, site of the U.N. conference on climate change, Mr. Monckton has held his own “counterconference” with a contingent of 60 scientists and climatologists.

During Wednesday’s broadcast, he listened to a recording of former Vice President Al Gore reciting a doomsday poem he’d written. Without missing a beat, Mr. Monckton improvised a limerick mocking Mr. Gore’s dire climate-change predictions.

- Rep. Brian P. Bilbray, California Republican: Mr. Bilbray noted that the Southern California home in which he grew up was a stone’s throw from the U.S.-Mexico border. It is amazing today, said the 58-year-old lawmaker, to see how the border region has changed for the worse, given the tremendous number of people, weapons and drugs that are smuggled between the two countries.
