Congressman Mike Thompson Discusses What is Being Done for Andrew Tahmooressi

Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi #MarineHeldinMexico has been waiting for justice in a Mexican jail for over 100 days now. He was an active duty Marine from San Diego, who served in Afghanistan, who accidentally made a wrong turn into the toll gates at the Mexican border. He told the authorities he had his pesonal weapons in the back, and that's when the nightmare began. His plight has been largely ignored by the media, and by public officials. Congressman Mike Thompson joins us this morning to discuss what is being done for the marine.

Tensions Flare in the Middle East Part 1

Why do the Palestinians and Jews keep fighting? What is it about this visceral antipathy between the two that keeps them at war, for CENTURIES? One reason is that many of the Palestinians have ties with Hamas, and some other terrorist organizations. Another reason - the Palestinians belief in Islam, which calls for the destruction of Israel. This morning we are joined by Dr. Mike Harris, an activist of the Israeli organization, "Stand with Us."

    What happened to the news? It is sounding like a conservative talk show without the talk. We may have to change stations in the morning to get local news. Do not like it at all. We would tune into a talk show if we wanted to hear the rants.

    Your news is not news it is conservative talk show commentary and often silly banter.
    Cant we just get the news?

      @Greg Rosa I listen most mornings and hear news. If you're listening after 9a.m., guess what? That IS a conservative talk show! Before 9, it's mostly news and some interviews, editorials and some "banter." Maybe if you want boring news you should be listening to NPR, or something. You can pretend that liberal news doesn't have editorials, commentary or "banter," if you like. KSRO's new programming is WAY more entertaining than it was before.
