After last week’s hearing on Benghazi before Darryl Issa’s House Oversight Committee, we have even more questions about what happened on the most recent anniversary of 9/11. Still, it’s a clear picture is emerging, and common sense allows us to connect the very obvious dots. We’ll explore the remaining questions with über attorney Victoria Toensing, who represented the Benghazi whistleblowers, and who was scheduled to appear last week, but was delayed while traveling. Combining what happened in the hearing with an application of my knowledge of the Chicago Way, I’m pretty sure I understand what happened. I’ll tell you during today’s show. Suffice it to say for now that it’s time to put Valerie Jarrett, Plouffe, & Obama’s ultimate sleazemeister, Axelrod under oath and get some answers. There was another hearing in Congress last week, this time in the Senate on immigration. Any doubt that this 844-page monstrosity drafted by the Gang of 8 is a trick cooked up by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), should be gone after what we heard last week. Of the over 300 amendments proposed to the bill, the defeat of the one specific change tells us everything we need to know. Paging Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). Let me say it again: you are being played.Didn’t Sen. Ru

Voting on the Gun Control bill in the Senate underway today. Elizabeth Letchworth is with us to parse it and piece it together.
The gun control legislation proposed by Senators Charles Schumer (D-NY), Pat Toomey (R-PA), and Joe Manchin (D-WV) lets firearms dealers secretly run government background checks on job applicants—a gross violation of privacy.
Private-sector employers should not be able to use non-public government databases like the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to check up on job applicants, unless the job applicants first consent to the intrusion into their privacy. And the job applicants have every reason to consent—they want the job.
This week's issues, the 2nd Amendment and immigration. Sen. Chuck Schumer can't respond to Sen. Jeff Sessions question: will you continue to support your amnesty proposal if economists tell you it will further depress Americans' wages?
Moochelle Obama travels to Chicago to shill for more pointless gun control, hoping that no one will connect the dots between the lack of enforcement of Chicago's ridiculous anti-gun laws and her emotional plea, which was, like everything else, all about her.

Part 1: BP Counters Expert Testimony in Gulf Oil Spill Trial, Says Drilling Met Safe Requirements
BP lawyers are working to paint a different picture than the one presented by those impacted by the Gulf oil spill incident. BP and co-defendants are suggesting that their drilling technique was well within what was considered safe practice for the industry. We'll get the legal breakdown from Brian LeCesne, a law professor at Loyola University's New Orleans School of Law.
Part 2: California Senate Considers Revoking Boy Scouts Tax Exempt Status Over Gay Members
Some California legislators have filed a bill that would strip the Boy Scouts of their tax-exempt status in the state as long as they refuse to accept gay members.
Part 3: Pro-Immigration Forces Rally in Washington as Congress Considers Reform
An expected tens of thousands of people are gathering at the Capitol Building today, calling on Congress to create an easier pathway to citizenship for the millions of undocumented aliens in the United States. Organizers planned this Rally for Citizenship for today believing that an immigration bill is imminent. Indeed, members of Congress from both sides of the aisle have been working on a bi-partisan bill for months, particularly the so-called gang of eight which includes Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Jeff Flake, Robert Menendez, Dick Durbin, Michael Bennet and Chuck Schumer. However, difficult negotiations have forced delays, particularly until just a few weeks ago when a major breakthrough between business leaders and labor unions resolved a question about the level of pay for guest workers. However, a House vote planned for tomorrow has been delayed again and now Congress is expected to take up the issue early next week. We'll talk to several rally participants.
Supreme Court Decides Dog Sniffing Outside Home Constitutes Search
Overshadowed by the arguments on same-sex marriage, the Supreme Court decided a major Fourth Amendment case last week. In a 5 to 4 split, the Court declared that using a police dog to sniff outside a house constitutes a search for purposes of Fourth Amendment privacy protections and, thereby, requires a search warrant. Justice Antonin Scalia, who wrote the majority opinion, resolved the question on property rights grounds. Going on someone’s porch, he said, is trespassing and, therefore so is a police search. We will talk to Leslie Shoebotham, a professor at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law. While we have her on the phone, we’ll find out what other Fourth Amendment analysis we can expect from the Court this term.
Senate Members: Congress Close to Immigration Bill After Deal on Guest Workers
The so-called Gang of Eight bipartisan U.S. senators are reportedly close to a deal on immigration following reports over the weekend of an agreement on the issue of guest workers. A late-night deal on Friday on the guest worker issue resolved a conflict between business groups and unions over allowing guest workers take legal jobs in the country, considered a significant roadblock before a deal on immigration overall. Despite Senators Lindsey Graham and Charles Schumer’s declarations of an imminent deal, however, Senator Marco Rubio released a statement yesterday saying they aren’t as close as reports suggest. We will talk to Humberto Sanchez, political reporter for Roll Call.
