Following controversy and a subsequent 12-year absence from WWE, Bret “Hit Man” Hart makes an unexpected homecoming appearance as arguably the most distinguished guest host ever. Be part of this monumental episode of Monday Night Raw and witness the long-awaited return of The Excellence of Execution, Bret Hart. Tune in tonight at 9/8 CT on USA Network.


“Janet Napolitano was interviewed on CNN’s Sunday show ‘State of the Nation,’ following the failure of the Tightey-Whitey-Bomber to bring down a flight just outside of Detroit on Christmas Day and said: ‘One thing I want to point out is that the system worked. Everybody played an important role here. The passengers and crew of the flight took appropriate action.’

“Of course that is preposterous. The system pretty obviously did not work because if the system had worked ‘the passengers and crew of the flight’ would not have had to take any ‘appropriate action’ other than whining about the agents taking too long to bring the jet bridge up to the plane.”

“On Christmas Day, a gentleman from Nigeria succeeded (effortlessly) in boarding a flight to Detroit with a bomb in his underwear. Pretty funny, huh? But the Pantybomber wasn’t the big joke. The real laugh was the United States government. The global hyperpower spent the next week making itself a laughingstock to the entire planet.

“First, the bureaucrats at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) swung into action with a whole new range of restrictions. Against radical Yemen-trained Muslims wearing weaponized briefs? Of course not. That would be too obvious. So instead they imposed a slew of constraints against you.

“At Heathrow last week, they were permitting only one item of carry-on on U.S. flights. In Toronto, no large purses. Um, the Pantybomber didn’t have a purse. He brought the bomb on board under his private parts, and his private parts weren’t part of his carry-on (although, if reports of injuries sustained in his failed mission are correct, they may well have been part of his carry-off).

“But no matter. If in doubt, blame the victim. The TSA announced that for the last hour of the flight no passenger can use the toilets or have anything on his lap – not a laptop, not a blanket, not a stewardess, not even a paperback book. I can’t wait for the first lawsuit after an infidel flight attendant confiscates a litigious imam’s Koran as they’re coming into LAX.”

“We were spared the horrible consequences of our incompetence, only because of Umar Farouk Abdulmullatab’s incompetence. The episode raises questions not only about airline security, but about how we are fighting the real war we are in. Defeating al-Qaida calls for ways and means different from dealing with domestic crime families like the Gottis or Gambinos.”

Columnist Patrick Buchanan


“Since Muslims took down Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988, every attack on a commercial airliner has been committed by foreign-born Muslim men with the same hair color, eye color and skin color. Half of them have been named Mohammed.”

Columnist Ann Coulter


“In response to a Nigerian Muslim trying to blow up a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on Christmas Day, the government will now prohibit international travelers from going to the bathroom in the last hour before the plane lands. Terrorists who plan to bomb planes during the first seven hours of the eight-hour flight, however, should face no difficulties, provided they wait until after the complimentary beverage service has been concluded.”

Columnist Ann Coulter


“(D)espite 5 trillion Americans opening laptops, surrendering lip gloss and drinking breast milk in airports day after day for the past eight years, the government still couldn’t stop a Nigerian Muslim from nearly blowing up a plane over Detroit on Christmas Day. The ‘warning signs’ exhibited by this particular passenger included the following:

  • His name was Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.
  • He’s Nigerian.
  • He’s a Muslim.
  • His name was Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.
  • He boarded a plane in Lagos, Nigeria.
  • He paid nearly $3,000 in cash for his ticket.
  • He had no luggage.
  • His name was Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.
  • Two months ago, his father warned the U.S. that he was a radical Muslim and possibly dangerous.

“….The warning from Abdulmutallab’s father put his son on some list, but not the ‘no fly’ list. Apparently, it’s tougher to get on the ‘no fly’ list than it was to get into Studio 54 in the ’70s. Currently, the only people on the ‘no fly’ list are the Blind Sheik and Sean Penn.”

Columnist Ann Coulter


“One of the defenses people speaking on behalf of the Administration have thrown up is the one about Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) having put a hold on Obama’s choice to head up the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). . . . According to DeMint, he has not put a hold on Erroll Southers, but he objected to a request to have Southers confirmed by unanimous consent – that is, without a roll call vote.

“. . . The point the Administration spokespeople have been making is that absent DeMint, Southers would have been busily working out the details of how best to stop terrorists from getting on airplanes in Amsterdam had not this unionization thing been going on for months and months. Goose Cookies.

“According to the Congressional Record, the President sent Southers’ nomination to the Senate on September 17, 2009. Not January 21 nor February 15. Not March 4 nor April 25. He sent it on September 17. According to my new Microsoft Excel 2010 that means 240 days elapsed between the day Obama was inaugurated and the day he got around to officially nominating a TSA chief.

“The Democratic-controlled Senate received the nomination and sent it to two committees which acted on Southers sequentially, rather than at the same time. It was not until November 19, 2009 – 63 days later – that they got around to actually trying to vote on him.

“Total time elapsed between Obama’s inaugural and Senate floor action? 303 days. No holds. No filibusters. Just showing how important Obama and the Senate Dems felt this whole thing was, prior to Christmas day.”

“If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, every thing, from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress…. Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited Government established by the people of America.”
