Weekend Reading:

A conversation with Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy. (Podcast here.)

A conversation with Norman Podhoretz about his new book, Why are the Jews Liberal. (Podcast here.)

A conversation with the Council on Foreign Relations’ Walter Russell Mead on President Obama’s appeasement of Iran. (Podcast here.)

And a conversation with Mark Steyn on Burikina Faso. (Podcast here.)

This is the last weekend when podcasts will be available without a subscription to the Hughniverse. The subscription is available for 40% off through 9/30.

The weekend thread at The Hughniverse Blog asks what have you done for freedom lately.

If you need some suggestions, here’s a post from earlier this week, which includes the contact info for the Democratic senators who are facing tough re-election campaigns this time next year as well as the contact info for all the “Blue Dog” Democrats:

If you are looking for the easiest steps to take, donate to the NRCC.org and the NRSC.org. The August fundraising results have Congressional Democrats scared. Additional donations to two challengers —Republican Danny Tarkanian is taking on Harry Reid in Nevada and GOPer Tom Lucero is challenging first term lefty Democrat Betsy Markey in Colorado– send two more messages.

Beyond that, take this article on the proposed massive cuts to Medicare –$500 billion in cuts to Medicare!– and send it to every senior citizen you know, along with the list below of “Blue Dog” Democrats in the House and Democratic Senators who are up for re-election in the Senate and urge your older friends to call, write and e-mail.

Finally, stand with Israel since President Obama won’t. Support the Republican Jewish Coalition, even if you aren’t Jewish.

Here’s the list of Democrats that worried seniors should contact to urge a no vote on Obamacare:
