-- back -- Hannity now in just a moment and COLT will respond to the Bob Woodward interview much more because this is not the first time the so called most transparent administration in history has attempted.
To obstruct the freedom of the press and after mr.
Woodward out of the White House.
On its threat he seems to have inspired several other journalists to do the same and earlier today -- former Clinton special counsel.
-- Lanny Davis said he also received threats from the Obama White House listen.
Theaters -- -- really great reporter -- and try to make the kind.
-- election and stronger newspaper.
He received a phone call from the senior Obama White House official who didn't like some of my columns.
Even on the supporter rob and I couldn't imagine -- this call is made.
And immediately threatened that -- -- Irish.
Told -- was avert threatened by the editor.
That if he continued to write my columns he was Lugar is reporters recruit that way that credential.
Pretty unbelievable just another example the arrogance intimidation of the Obama administration on full display in -- make matters worse.
Listen to how President Obama himself ended his meeting with the National Governors Association this was just earlier this week.
So look forward or partnering with -- What I wanna do is clear up for us so we can take some questions.
-- questions after we get rid of those pesky reporter people.
And they have a from the president's own -- here as a reaction author commissar -- and -- I look.
I read I like Bob Woodward's book -- -- -- -- it's really dwelled on really well research.
But it's kind of a little ironic that the liberal media has turned on him because he dared to expose a couple of Obama lies.
What do you make of that.
-- I think some of these liberal journalists have become a hot house flowers if they consider this intimidation if it does give me a break.
Son but I do if I mean I think the important point is making -- about the sequestered I can't believe you've got -- to talk about the sequester which I'm so bored wet.
I didn't even ask you about it well that's the important points he's making -- die I will say I am going to an end of the world orgy tonight in anticipation of the world's ending when the sequestered kick -- Mayan apocalypse.
X ten years.
Federal spending will only increased by 2.4 trillion instead of 2.5.
Trillion those -- the actual numbers stupid that's the sequester but he but I think the -- serious point that he is raising.
About Obama's -- stick to trim the federal budget going up my only 2.4 trillion dollars.
And it is -- -- something quite outrageous but Obama did this week in response to the assets it's called a fireman first rule where one.
When voters say you to the government you have to cut spending they instantly go to the most important most valuable programs the most beloved programs okay we're gonna cut firemen.
We'll know how comes out of cutting -- you cut the art therapy for the homeless -- -- somebody that doesn't have a phone program.
And can you get all the consultants down.
And what did they do this week I mean it's pretty shocking and it's I think it's relevant to a lot of things it's -- release criminal illegal aliens.
To be dumping them on the public and conservatives if they are Smart they're gonna do and a FOIA request and -- the names of the illegal aliens have been released.
And then keep track of the to -- not robberies.
Burglaries rapes possibly murderers.
All to punish his political opponents on the sequester and by the way your little friend Marco Rubio better be paying attention here because his -- -- -- Legalization first I'm not gonna trust the Obama administration all over the play to secure the border blood -- -- I think I was gonna do -- securing the border now that his first move on the sequester is to release.
Criminal illegal whaling but it's that in tell the world we can't afford to send Bob -- -- aircraft carrier in the Persian gulf would try really -- and then I actually import security so there'll be two -- line doesn't ever go back to.
That's original point though about Woodward here because this is a double block because he got -- -- originated the sequester.
You got Obama lying about it and they got Obama on moving the goal post using this to raise taxes again when that wasn't part of the deal.
Those are three huge swappers' what do they do they go -- and then they say what words will willfully wrong -- you gonna regret it.
And -- regardless of whether it's a threat or not it's an intimidating environment and these people get away with lying regularly.
Bob Woodward's reporting exploits in the past and -- I think you've exposed a -- -- Personally on this show on much bigger lies over a much longer period of time.
And -- the only editorial page on this network I would also like to throw that -- for him to -- -- -- MSNBC with fox.
It is preposterous.
Your not watching you're not watching television last week.
Rachel -- -- edited of the -- video she's on MSNBC.
I'm a woman who is under a fiancee a relative was killed a furor shooting.
And she asks this woman asked McCain about her in every meeting McCain spends like 200 saying how sorry he is -- sense that this is terrible our hearts go out you know one knows how you feel -- -- says.
But I'm gonna give you some straight talking assault weapons ban is a -- of a -- This isn't -- hard court if he cut she cut all of that it goes straight from the weeping woman to hear her sing I'm -- -- give you some straight talk.
At the deal if fox ever -- -- they pull the power to put us.
Sort of -- like NBC you know is he black white or Hispanic would Jordan -- they take out the question right.
Exactly they just -- axle -- and NBC and it has hired Robert Gibbs a propagandist this literally is state run media.
Now how does democracy survive and this is not that I -- this is not.
This is a serious question.
If we don't have a critical media that doesn't ask questions about -- -- doesn't ask about fast and furious allows him to lie about the debt the deficit and nobody cares about his association with the.
You know a terrorist by the Delaware I think it's a serious problem is Democrat packet -- -- it just didn't the media today is a threat to democracy.
But the -- -- do what do you prevent more bad things from happening like our entire health care system being.
-- socialize taken over by the government that's gonna go break.
Is it is is by having keep holding -- house of representatives -- for one thing Republicans ought to start paying attention.
Passion is terrific but scoring is what counts don't -- candidates who are going to win we need to look seriously at candidates and not reward people who harm.
Our presidential or other candidate one last thing and also what they have to get that.
They have to look seriously at him releasing illegal aliens all's I can only say he's not going to enforce the border he -- he hasn't been -- for the beginning but I think.
Then the -- -- amnesty plan.
We'll talk about is not general waters -- this time aren't gonna come and say I.
Give us here's the back is inhaled.
-- -- -- -- -- By the way fox got a very popular not done fox got attacked by needed done dead fish.
Rambo and David Axelrod then we got that the interior secretary I'm gonna punch out the local media guy in Colorado that we had CBS reporters.
This is a bad group.
And I think this is finally we're waking up to it not but does -- not attack I am a conservative.
I have had that the Democrats take out private detectives on my private life views the liberal journalists are hot house -- -- -- a saving a break.
All right -- that we love seeing -- thank you for being was good to be here coming up later.
