- Col John Antal US Army (Ret.) joins The Wells Report to discuss the ISIS Kill List and Bowe Bergdahl March 25, 2015
Listen to Jon-David’s conversation with Colonel John Antal US Army (Ret.) on the ISIS Kill list and Bowe Bergdahl below:
ISIS releases ‘Kill List'; Seven Texas cities included
The Pentagon has responded to a globally-released ‘Kill List’, asking law enforcement to give extra protection for military personnel whose personal information was released.
CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports the Pentagon spent the weekend notifying the soldiers who appeared on the list, and urged city police departments and military police to increase patrol in the neighborhoods where the targeted live.
The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) published the list days ago, a report that contained names, photos, and home addresses of U.S. Armed Forces personnel, causing alarm in cities potentially at high-risk.
According to the publication, ISIS urges followers and sympathizers in the U.S. to kill the servicemen. Specific personnel on the list are largely from the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy – branches of the country’s military that have conducted massive air strikes against ISIS.

Bowe Bergdahl, once-missing U.S. soldier, charged with desertion
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier who slipped away from his patrol base in Afghanistan in 2009 and was held in captivity for five years, has been charged with desertion and misbehaving before the enemy, Army officials said Wednesday, setting the stage for emotionally charged court proceedings in coming months.
The charges were announced by the service at Fort Bragg, N.C., hours after the 28-year-old was handed a charge sheet, according to one of his attorneys. Bergdahl will next face a preliminary Article 32 hearing, which is frequently compared to a grand jury proceeding in civilian court.
If convicted, he faces the possibility of life in prison. Read the rest here.

- Congressman Michael Burgess on The Wells Report March 25, 2015
Congressman Michael Burgess TX-26 stopped by to discuss with Jon-David his new bill (HR1470) nicknamed the “doc-fix legislation”. It’s the SGR Repeal and Medicare Provider Payment Modernization Act of 2015.
Background: The legislation repeals the fundamentally flawed SGR formula, which has forced 17 short-term costly patches over the past decade in order to prevent devastating Medicare reimbursement rate cuts. The formula will be replaced with a system focused on quality care and accountability. The plan will:
1. Repeal the SGR and end the annual threat to seniors’ care, while instituting a 0.5% payment update each year for five years.
2. Improve the fee-for-service system by streamlining Medicare’s existing web of quality programs into one value-based performance program. It increases payment accuracy and encourages physicians to adopt proven practices.
3. Incentivize the use of alternative payment models to encourage doctors and providers to focus more on coordination and prevention to improve quality and reduce costs.
4. Make Medicare more transparent by giving patients more access to information and supplying doctors with data they can use to improve care.

- Texas Rep. Villalba files bill that criminalizes bloggers, citizens filming cops March 13, 2015
Texas State Representative Jason Villalba (R-Texas) has found himself at the center of controversy after filing a bill that would make it a crime for bloggers and independent journalists — as well as regular citizens — to film police officers. Despite the backlash from free speech advocates, Villalba is insisting that his bill “does not infringe on constitutional rights” or “limit liberty in any way.”
The current law, Section 38.15(1) of the Texas Penal Code, makes it a crime if anyone “interrupts, disrupts, impedes, or otherwise interferes with a peace officer while the peace officer is performing a duty or exercising authority imposed or granted by law.”
The bill, HB 2918, adds to the definition of what constitutes “interfering” with an officer’s duties, and would make it a Class B Misdemeanor to film, record, photograph, or document the officer within 25 feet while that officer is performing his official duties. That distance is extended to 100 feet if the person is carrying a concealed handgun. There is an exception for news media, but the current language of the bill does not include bloggers, independent journalists, or private citizens, and it is not clear whether online media outlets would be included in the exception either.

- Don’t Blame the Innocent for the Shootings in Ferguson March 12, 2015
Two police officers were shot in Ferguson last night, by a would-be assassin. They were not shot by Barack Obama. They were not shot by Eric Holder. And they were not shot by “the media” or by the Democratic party.
The shooter wasn’t forced to pull the trigger by “the protests,” and nor was his crime commissioned by our latent “political culture.” Al Sharpton was nowhere to be seen. Rather, a man who was in possession of his own agency made a terrible, disastrous decision.
Observers who have today attempted to indict the entire post-Ferguson activist movement for his crime should know better than to imply otherwise.
Now, as ever, there are a host of good and bad influences out there in America.
Now, as ever, we have a set of simple and broadly comprehended rules to govern how individuals may react to them.
In the United States, political discontents may say almost anything without fear of prosecution — yes, even extraordinarily offensive things – but they are by no means permitted to assuage their frustrations with violence.
In consequence, it does not matter whether the provocative “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” meme came from one dishonest witness or from the entire press corps.
Those who are angered by it are prohibited from shooting people in either case. read the entire article from Charles C.W. Cooke in the National Review here.
