What's on Tap – Thursday, June 11th, 2009

Police officers block the street leading to the main entrance of the Holocaust Museum on June 10, 2009, in Washington, DC, after a shooting (Getty Images). Law enforcement sources identified the suspect as James W. von Brunn (inset).

Here are the big stories on the agenda today:

  • New information this morning about the 88-year-old white supremacist, who police say opened fire with a rifle at the Holocaust Museum in Washington.  He is a known Holocaust denier – who even claimed "The Diary of Anne Frank" was a hoax.  Police walked out of his condo with boxes overnight.  We’re live outside his home, and have more on his dark history of hate.
  • Former Defense Secretary William Cohen was inside the museum when this went down.  He’ll share his eyewitness account with us this morning.
  • New evidence this morning supporting theories that Air France Flight 447 broke apart in the air, before crashing into the ocean.  Aviation experts say the debris and the condition of bodies found 50 miles apart point to that.
  • Act now! This may be the best time, in a long time – to buy a new house!  That’s if you can afford it. Christine Romans on the incredible deals that are out there right now – and why you better act fast.

    I believe in freedom of speech and the american way.But america needs to wake up and see the these hate groups known as KKK, Neo-Nazi, Arian Nation ect. Are nothing but terrorist from our back yard.As I see on all three news outlets this morning everyone seems to focus on his age (88),what is this? a ploy to get some kind of sympathy for this terrorist!why are we not giving our sympathy to the victim and his family.If the United States government wish to continue to allow these terrorist to operate out of our country and to go unchecked.Then don't act like we are holier than thou when these terrorist commits a crime,and wonder why the other countries around the world call us hypocrites when we declare war against terror in there country.When we can't even controll our own.

  3. Generic Drugs?

    Contrary to what Dr. Gupta says, not all generics have exactly the same active ingredients or are buffered or chelated so that they are as effective as name brands. One, for instance–celexa–in the generic form does not penetrate the brain barrier or have the long tail that the name brand does. For a psychotropic drug, especially being prescribed for depression, to be so dangerously different it is important to know this. May doctors, thus, will prescribe a smaller dose to be taken twice a day because they know about its shorter period of "efficacy"; what they seem to forget is that the generic penetrates the brain barrier less efficiently.

    For anyone who interested, my source of info is Dr. Herb Wagemaker, a psychiatrist in Ponte Vedra Beach, the author of many books explaining important medical matters in layman's terms, and probably the leading authority in the country on many medical matters. His experience is vast and is tempered by love for mankind. He was awarded huge NIMH grants.

    You can go to and read the box in the lower left-hand corner for a start into exploring this and other topics that may be of interest.

    RJ the guy who killed the abortion doctor did it supposedly for the unborn rights which I do not condone but the Jew and black people hater went on a rampage because he hated certain people of a different race which is a totally different kind of hatred but the doctor killer also should know that killing any person for any reason with the exception of self defense is not the way God wants us to live.

    if you tell any certain group they are not allowed then being America means nothing! Whether we like it or not and the way of life we enjoy then we have to include all groups no matter! If you sit back and try to exclude certain groups than your no better than the Nazis of Germany were, because they practiced the same ideals! educate yourself, this guy was no different than the guy who killed the abortion doctor last week!

    What if people who know an individual that holds so much hate would try and reach deep in his heart and mind to show him that all men/women are equally loved by God and that no one is above another in God's eyes?

    This world is full of crazies of all colors! Its too bad ignorance runs rampid in this country! I wander through all this if we will ever recognize the Chinese, Cambodians, Russians who were slaughtered by the millions as well as the Jews if they will ever get a museum? Arent these people just as important as the Jews are?

    When will America learn the freedom isn't free? We go around the world in order to find terrorist,however, we won't do anything about it(homegrown) right here in our own back yard!
    Two things,
    First, It is against the law to be a Nazi in Germany and many counties around the world.
    Second, All of the hate group web sites are based here in the US of A
    Why? Because in other counties it against the law to have a hate Web site!
    Why not in the US of A?
    Freedom is not free!
