Tanks for the ping....
Thanks for the ping Perdogg.
John plays such good music!
Sounds like a great show...
James Freeman: Inflation could get to double digits.
On board listening.
Inflation,Stagflation or whatever is the least of our problems.
We need to think in terms if Obama wins, the war will take on a new dimension in which the IslamOfascists will be able to speed up their victory.
Our Military will be desamated as many will not enlist not wanting Obama as their commander in chief. Huge numbers
already in the military will not re enlist for the same reason.
The economy, oil, etc will be moot.
Thanks for posting this. Your link to the John Batchelor show.com doesn’t work. Please post a correction.
The WABC link works fine for me...
Why, in the name of all things holy, do people call me ‘exactly’ at 7 and not let me off the phone till 10.
Dangonit! Now I have to go to KFI
Did he cover the prisoner swap?
Yes, John referred to it, correctly IMHO, as extortion.
The show will be available for rebroadcast tomorrow.
Sounds like Bill Cunningham’s program will be action packed on WABC.
John Bolton is the Best!
Earlier mention was made re the Boma birth cert and not being kosher
I don’t know because I took my Sunday nap in the middle of the show.
I was on another site and to put it mildly Hizbullah is very pleased with itself.
So much to say and I won’t because I’m a lady.

Goldwasser, Regev expected to be returned in 10 days
The Jerusalem Post ^ | Jun 29, 2008 | HERB KEINON
Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, the two soldiers whose kidnapping on July 12, 2006, triggered the Second Lebanon War, are expected to be returned to Israel within 10 days as a result of Sunday’s cabinet approval of a swap with Hizbullah.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, in a dramatic statement to his ministers at the outset of a six-hour discussion on the deal, said the two men are almost certainly dead.
“As far as we know, the two soldiers - Udi Goldwasser and Eldad Regev - are no longer alive,” he said. “As far as we know, they were killed during the kidnapping or died from their wounds soon after the incident.”........
