Gaddafi Declares War Against His Own People
Reports began flying earlier today about Libya’s leader Muammar Gaddafi essentially declaring war against his own people. TIME reported Gaddafi has ordered security services to start sabotaging oil facilities. They will start by blowing up several oil pipelines, cutting off flow to Mediterranean ports. The sabotage, according to the insider, is meant to serve as a message to Libya's rebellious tribes: It's either me or chaos. The dictator later vowed to die "a martyr" and said he would crush a revolt which has seen eastern regions break free from four decades of his rule. Refugees streaming across Libya's eastern border into Egypt said Gaddafi was using tanks, warplanes and foreign mercenaries to fight the growing rebellion. Although many in the Libyan army refused orders to attack their own people. “I have to give credit to some of the Libyan fighter pilots who defected rather than bomb their own people. Gaddafi has fueled horrific wars in Liberia and other African countries. He’s responsible for killing hundreds of thousands of Africans. Gaddafi has always been one of the world’s largest terrorists,” said Sean. “He’s an evil guy with blood from thousands of people on his hands. So it’s not surprising that this monster would declare war on his own people and mow them down in the streets.”

A Simple Government
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee joined Sean on Tuesday’s show to talk about his new book, “A Simple Government: Twelve Things We Really Need from Washington (and a Trillion That We Don't!).” Huckabee surprised the nation by coming in second during the ‘08 Republican presidential primaries. He connected with millions of voters by calling for a smaller, simpler government that would get out of the way when appropriate. (Unfortunately, there weren't quite enough of those voters to prevent the election of “The Anointed One”.) Since being elected, Obama's message has morphed from "hope and change" to "tax and spend" and "borrow and spend" and "over-regulate and spend." Yet Huckabee has continued to be the voice of common sense conservatism, through his show on Fox News, his radio commentaries, and his lectures around the country. Now he's written a book that sums up the twelve things we really need from Washington to get the country back on the right track. Huckabee explained to Sean that these twelve things “can help us put aside our differences, tone down the partisan rancor, and return to the simple principles of the Founding Fathers: liberty, justice, personal freedom, and civic virtue.” For more information on Gov. Huckabee’s new book, please click here.

Paul Sperry and David Kupelian
Award-winning journalist, best-selling author, and managing editor of online news giant David Kupelian spoke with Sean about the chaos in the Middle East. “What you’re seeing are the flames of Islamic rage – the whole area, the whole region of the Muslim world is on fire. These people live in fear and anger and intimidation. They have a lousy, corrupt evil government and they are just in fear and in rage all of the time. They’re like a forest fire that is waiting for a match to come along. So they see Egypt where people are expressing their rage and their hope of freedom and these feelings are spreading throughout the region. And the reason this is spreading is because we have a weak president. We’re seeing a repeat of 1979 where a weak Jimmy Carter gave up the shah to the evil Iatola Komani who lead his barbaric reign of terror,” said Kupelian. Paul Sperry, a Washington-based investigative journalist and Hoover Institution media fellow, joined the program with Kupelian and agreed. “The Islamic Brotherhood is taking advantage of all of this. The people are hoping for an Islamic revival and [The Islamic Brotherhood’s] message is resonating.” To listen Sean’s complete radio interview with Paul Sperry and David Kupelian please click here.
