The Woodward Report Weekly Round Up

By Brian Woodward And Other News Sources

Rush Limbaugh


Over a week ago Rand Paul obliterated establishment candidate Trey Grayson in the Kentucky Republican primary race. Following this victory he was thrust further into the national spotlight with a near 20 minute exchange over civil rights on the Rachael Maddow Show. Rand Paul’s style of politics may mark the rise of a new shift in political views as anti-establishment sentiment continues to resonate throughout the country.

Domestic Politics

House minority Leader John Boehner was adamant amount the dedication of Republicans to repeal the Health Care Laws if they are able to win the house back. Boehner's remarks were made at a conference announcing the launch of the House Republicans' new Web site, – a forum where citizens can submit ideas for congressional Republicans to consider making part of their agenda.

Ground Zero

After hours of contentious public comment, a New York City community board voted late Tuesday to support a plan to build a mosque and cultural center near ground zero. This is something that is sure to spark controversy over the weeks and months to come and will be certainly met by passionate advocates on each side of the issue.

Don't Ask

The House passed a measure on a defense bill that would end the “don’t ask don’t tell” ban on gays and lesbians serving openly in the military — some supporters are comparing the legislation to the integration of the armed forces in the 1940s.

Oil Spill

The gulf oil spill continues to dominate topics of discussion and is increasingly becoming a big political problem for President Obama. In a piece by Karl Rove it is asserted that this crisis is turning into Obama’s Katrina.

Rush Limbaugh

In an e-mail sent to Zev Chafets, author of the new book "Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One, " Limbaugh admitted, "I know I am a target and I know I will be destroyed eventually. I fear that all I have accomplished and all the wealth I have accumulated will be taken from me, to the cheers of the crowd. I know I am hated and despised by the American Left."

Foreign Affairs

On Sunday South Korea's President Lee Myung-bak released this statement in relation to their warship being attacked by a North Korean torpedo, “If our territorial waters, airspace or territory are militarily violated, we will immediately exercise our right of self-defense.” North and South Korea accelerated their diplomatic confrontation on Tuesday over the recent sinking of a South Korean warship, with the South saying it would redesignate the North its “archenemy” and North Korea severing almost all of its remaining ties to its far wealthier neighbor. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, a former South Korean foreign minister, is setting aside the traditional impartiality of his post to push for sanctioning North Korea over a suspected naval attack. Ban has endorsed the conclusion of an international probe that North Korea was behind the March 26 sinking of a South Korean warship, before neighboring China and Russia have judged the findings.

New Palestinian Army

The U.S. is in the process of training a new Palestinian army. 3 star Lt. General Keith Dayton has quietly been working in Palestine since the take over of the Gaza strip by Hamas extremists in 2007 to build a Palestinian army. American Special Forces soldiers are helping to whip them into shape in training centers in Jordan and the West Bank, to stop Hamas from taking more territory and to protect the Palestinian authority of Mahmoud Abbas. Many Palestinian soldiers couldn't praise enough what they called the high degree of professional training provided by the American SF team.


On Thursday U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner called on Germany and Europe to support global economic growth by cutting budget deficits judiciously, and to avoid uncoordinated steps on financial regulation that undermine fragile confidence in financial markets.
