Hannity Was Right: Gas Prices Sneaking Up!
It could be the conflict in Libya or the fact that we can no longer drill anywhere to find new sources of crude oil but what is clear is that gas prices are going up everywhere! If you don’t believe it, there’s proof now on Hannity.com! So, what can Washington do about the increased costs which are now approaching $4 a gallon? House Speaker John Boehner is strongly pushing the “de facto moratorium on deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico,” while Massachusetts Congressman Ed Markey is blaming the unrest in the Middle East. This is nothing new though; Sean has been screaming about America’s energy incentives for months. Just a few weeks ago Sean warned the audience, “It shouldn’t matter what happens in the Middle East, what we need to do is develop our own energy sources.” Take a listen to Sean’s show from March 3rd where he predicted gas prices to skyrocket. It’s difficult to hear “I told you so” but Sean has every right to say he warned us. While Congress continues to trade barbs, the ceiling for gas prices is not in site.
Investigative reporter James O’Keefe joined Sean to discuss his controversial undercover video that caught NPR executive Ron Schiller blasting the Tea Party. “In this video, they were being very honest about NPR and he was very honest that NPR didn’t need government money.” Hannity continued, “I think this was very expected and plays into this image that conservatives have of NPR and that is that of an off-the-chart contempt for anything non-liberal.” “This isn’t politically frankly,” noted O’Keefe, “This is about our tax money and where it’s going and this was coming from the top organizational leaders.” For more on this and other projects Mr. O’Keefe has been working on, check out exposenpr.com.
Economist Rick Santelli stopped by the show to share his thoughts on the types of safe investments to make.“I have no clue how to invest my money,” admitted Sean, “Where do you put your money.” “It’s not a perfect time to invest but it’s a great time if you’re really in the market,” offered Santelli, “One area I’d be careful in is stocks and remember not to be greedy.” Santelli offered some great advice on where to invest your money.

James O'Keefe, 26, is an investigative journalist and filmmaker. He is president of Project Veritas, a non-profit organization dedicated to training video muckrakers nationwide. James' investigations expose corruption and malfeasance in major taxpayer-funded institutions, including ACORN, Planned Parenthood, the U.S. Census Bureau, and elected officials. His most recent expose featured the New Jersey teachers union and was hailed by N.J. Governor Chris Christie as "enlightening and enraging." James is most well-known for his 2009 ACORN investigation, which exposed systematic corruption in multiple offices, such as the facilitation of child prostitution, human trafficking and tax evasion. The U.S. House and Senate promptly voted to defund ACORN and the U.S. Census cut ties with the group. The organization was ultimately forced to disband. In addition to his own reporting, James is committed to empowering the next generation of citizen journalists. From... More >
