Friday 06/21/19 – Kevin Miller Show
Kevin Miller opens today's show by recounting the historic events of last night. President Trump ordered an attack on Iran, but called it off within 10 minutes of the bombs being dropped and the missiles being fired. He breaks down the multiple historical situations between Iran and the United States of America. Kevin Miller takes calls from listeners responding to the breaking overnight news. Kevin Miller reports that almost 2,000 Idaho National Guard troops will be coming home from combat training at Fort Irwin, California. Kevin Miller reports on a rare and troubling story out of Oregon. Oregon has come up with a novel way to round up lollygagging lawmakers for a vote on a new climate plan: She sent out the police to arrest them. Governor Kate Brown issued the all-points-bulletin on Thursday after minority Republicans walked out on negotiations with Democrats over a plan to lower the state's greenhouse gas emissions. The Republicans want the issue to be sent to voters, while Brown and other Democrats want it to be handled in the state Senate. The absence of the Republican senators prevents the vote from taking place. "It’s time for the Senate Republicans to show up and do the job they were elected to do," Brown says. Apparently, calling for the senators to be taken into custody isn't beyond her gubernatorial powers -- under Oregon law, absentee senators can be fined $500 per day for holding up a vote. Kevin Miller asks the following questions: Are you just as surprised every time you hear about politicians playing such childish games? Should politicians be punished for not doing their jobs?Today's guests: 6:35 a.m. - Fox News Radio's Rachel Sutherland with the latest on U.S./ Iran relations ; 7 a.m. - Chris Chmielenski of NumbersUSA has the latest on the immigration crisis ; 8 a.m. - U.S. Rep. for Idaho's 1st Congressional District Russ Fulcher discusses Iran, China, approriations and more.
