Dec 29, 2015
In this episode I discuss the very real dangers of socialism, how the purveyors of this failed ideology manipulate their followers, and why it's crucial that we speak to the next generation about its dangers.

I walk through what socialism is, what free markets are, why socialism kills, and what you need to dismantle false arguments in its defense.

Dec 28, 2015

http://www.wsj.com/articles/saving-puerto-rico-from-itself-1451066343

http://www.wsj.com/articles/trying-to-hide-the-rise-of-violent-crime-1451066997

Dec 24, 2015

In this episode I discuss some of the positive signs for our future. I discuss the economic possibilities if we were to elect a true conservative to the White House. I also address the Obama administration's executive orders and regulations which we can easily roll-back, and we can begin to put ourselves back on the path to prosperity. 

Dec 23, 2015

In this episode I discuss the three most important battles ahead of us. First, the broken data collection program at the NSA. Second, a Federal Reserve which is destroying our economy. And third, the left's disturbing culture war and its impact on you.

Dec 22, 2015

In this episode I discuss the Virginia Attorney General's planned attack on your Second Amendment rights and the reasons that he is doing it.

http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2015/12/22/virgina-to-drop-long-held-concealed-carry-reciprocity-agreements-with-other-states-n2096229

 

I also discuss the Obama administration's continued war on business through unconstitutional rule-making and confiscatory tax policies. They want control first, your money second.

http://www.wsj.com/articles/treasurys-latest-inversion-failure-1450744017

 

The final "sticky notes" story is Chris Jacob's piece in Conservative Review which covers the "games" being played with the Obamacare exchanges and the resulting death spiral which is ongoing.

https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2015/12/hillary-clinton-and-health-care-games

 

The core topic of today's show is a take-down of the Obama administration's plan to coerce local government's and universities into forfeiting away control of their localities and institutions using your tax dollars.

http://townhall.com/columnists/thomassowell/2015/12/22/the-busybody-left-n2095925/page/2

Dec 21, 2015

In this episode I discuss the serious threat to your privacy and constitutional protections inherent in the NSA's metadata collection program, and some of the false arguments used to defend it.

http://www.wsj.com/articles/metadata-or-more-san-bernardinos-1450646147

https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2015/12/the-creep-of-government-surveillance

 

I also discuss the Bank of Japan's dangerous policy of printing money to purchase stocks. This is a dangerous new front in the ongoing debate about monetary policy.

http://www.wsj.com/articles/the-bank-of-japan-lays-an-egg-1450652587

 

The core topic of today's show is a discussion of the false promise of the Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign. Sanders is promising "real power" to the people but every program he has proposed involves empowering government, not the people.

Dec 18, 2015

In this episode I discuss the degenerating Democratic Party and their disgraceful war on poor families and their children's education.

http://www.wsj.com/articles/a-school-voucher-surrender-1450397585

I also discuss the Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio fight over immigration and the real reasons behind this battle.

I address the Democratic Party's (and the media's) continued push for an enormous tax-payer funded bailout for health insurance companies and the hypocrisy in their fight.

The final "sticky notes" story is the stunning revelation on Capitol Hill yesterday by Obama administration officials that they do not know the locations of thousands of potential terrorists IN THE COUNTRY who had their visas revoked.

The core topic of the show is the secular progressives and their war on Christmas. I break it down and tell you why it matters to you.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/12/16/war-christmas-hits-small-texas-town/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social

Dec 17, 2015

In this episode I discuss the "new socialism" which hinges on heavy taxation and regulation in lieu of direct government ownership of the means of production as it relates to the Obama administration's record setting push for red-tape.

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/report-obama-sets-red-tape-record-545875-pages/article/2578558?utm_campaign=Washington%20Examiner:%20Washington%20Secrets&utm_source=Washington%20Examiner:%20Washington%20Secrets%20-%2012/17/15&utm_medium=email

 

I also address the far-left's failed "war on guns" and Jonah Goldberg's National Review piece about its tactical failures in contrast to the "war on cigarettes."

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/428569/war-guns-failed-san-bernardino

 

The final "sticky notes" story is a discussion of John Gray's Conservative Review Piece which breaks down this misguided budget deal.

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/428569/war-guns-failed-san-bernardino

 

The core topic of today's show is the lurking economic crisis being caused by the Federal Reserve's monetary policy and how it damages your finances.

http://commentators.com/blame-the-next-economic-crisis-on-the-federal-reserve/

Dec 16, 2015

In this episode I discuss the faulty logic used by the far-left in their attacks on capitalism. Either they don't understand capitalism, or they do understand it and are living hypocritical lives.

 

I also address Hillary Clinton's new plan to force companies to move their business overseas using a bizarre new tax plan. http://www.wsj.com/articles/hillarys-patriot-act-1450225626

 
www.wsj.com
Hillary Clinton’s answers to corporate inversions are more rules and an exit tax, the Wall Street Journal writes in an editorial.

The final "sticky notes" story is a discussion of the left's backwards reasoning with regard to abortion, firearms, education and healthcare.

https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2015/12/conservatism-301-confronting-faulty-far-left-reasoning

 
www.conservativereview.com
The myriad contradictions of leftist rationale.

The core topic of today's show is a discussion of the most significant debate topic of last night's GOP debate, the mass collection of American's phone data.

 

Dec 15, 2015
In this episode I discuss a short audio clip from Thomas Sowell, where he debates a liberal about the benefits of social programs.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GklCBvS-eI
I also address the Obamacare "death spiral" and how it's made its way into left-leaning media outlets, a sure sign of its coming demise.
http://www.vox.com/2015/12/14/9910650/obamacare-premiums-2016
The final "sticky notes" story is the immediate collapse of the dangerous Iran deal.
https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2015/12/iran-nuke-deal-already-proving-to-be-worthless

The core topic of today's show is a discussion of the government and Federal Reserve actions which led us to this dangerous economic fork-in-the-road.
http://www.wsj.com/articles/the-new-bond-market-1450139392
Dec 14, 2015
In this episode I discuss the erroneous logic of the left used to defend their position on income inequality. I also address the left's continued use of the phrase "Trickle Down Economics," despite ANY evidence that this theory actually exists. The final "stick notes" story is the Obama administration's war on the franchise model of business and the reasoning behind it.
The core topic of today's show is the left's use of troubling reasoning to advocate for gun control while using the exact opposite argument to advocate for abortion.
Dec 11, 2015

In this episode I discuss the reasons behind the left’s attack on new business models such as Uber and AirBNB. Rep. Nancy Pelosi has called this the “gig economy.” I also address the Obama administration’s misguided lawsuits against auto-lenders while claiming that they were engaging in racist practices. But, you’ll be surprised to hear how they determined the race of the people in the lawsuit. The final “sticky notes” story is a discussion of the CDC and their push for gun control “research.”

The core topic of today’s show is the disappearing American middle-class and why President Obama has made the problem worse.

Dec 10, 2015

In this episode I discuss why the Secret Service is such a mess. Government-enforced bureaucratic inertia and risk-aversion, combined with an intense focus on faux-diversity measures are putting the life of the President at risk. I also address the New York Times’ hypocritical efforts to defend the Obamacare insurance company bailout program while, historically, attacking the failed TARP bailout using different language. The final “sticky notes” story is a discussion of the left’s misleading use of Keynesian economics to defend their tax and spend programs. The core topic of the show is a breakdown of Adam Gopnik’s incredibly disingenuous, and misleading, piece about gun control. Gopnik either doesn’t understand basic statistical analysis, or he does, and is lying about the data.

Dec 9, 2015
In this episode I discuss the misleading, media-driven, narrative that the GOP budget negotiations can “shut-down” the government. Only one person can shut down the government and that person isn’t in the Congress or the Senate. I also discuss a terrorism threat report by Sebastian Gorka which is timely and informative and a CBO report which predicts massive job losses due to Obamacare. The final “sticky-notes” topic of the show is a brief discussion of what the “strong dollar” is and why it’s important. The core topic of today’s show is a discussion of the legality of Donald Trump’s proposal to temporarily ban all Muslims from entering the United States.
Dec 8, 2015
In this episode I discuss the dramatic electoral losses South American socialists have been suffering. The broken ideology of socialism only succeeds in the textbooks of far-left writers. I also address the FEC chairwoman’s new plan to regulate local elections using federal rules. President Obama’s bureaucrats will leave no stone unturned in their quest to expand government before they leave office. The final “sticky notes” story is Hillary Clinton’s proposal to levy an “exit tax” on companies choosing to combine with overseas competitors. This economically unworkable proposal will, unquestionably, cost the United States jobs. The core topic of the show is a continued effort by the liberal intelligentsia to pin the root cause of terrorism on their definition of “inequality,” which is liberal code for “capitalism.”
Dec 7, 2015
In this episode I discuss the organized Left’s real agenda. When the larger narrative that drives the organized Left’s actions becomes clear, the answers to questions such “Why does President Obama refuse to speak about radical Islamic terrorism” become clear. There is a reason they do what they do, and speak how they speak, which I cover in detail in today’s episode.
Dec 4, 2015
In this episode I discuss the Obama administration forcing private companies to divert funds generated from lawsuits filed against them by the government to liberal groups. This is another disturbing end-around to fund the liberal agenda with your tax dollars. I also discuss another Obamacare failure where hiring an employee in the country illegally saves a company money over hiring an American citizen.
Dec 3, 2015
In this episode I discuss the Wall Street Journal’s Holman Jenkins’ piece about a stunning theory about radiation exposure and the dangers to human beings. I also address the Wall Street Journal’s excessive attacks on presidential candidate Ted Cruz. The core topic of today’s show is the disturbing tactic of the media, and some on the Left, to immediately politicize a tragedy to gain a perceived political advantage. I discuss the narratives the Left is using to manipulate American citizens and how they immediately tried to use the media to tell their inconvenient narrative about the San Bernardino attacks.
Dec 2, 2015
In this episode I discuss the persistent myth, advanced by activists on the Left, that President Obama has been responsible for “record deportations” of illegal immigrants. I also address the economics of healthcare with respect to the market for new medicines. Some Democrats are pouncing on the high price of the Hepatitis C drug Sovaldi as evidence of a “market failure.” However, this case is really evidence of a government failure, not a “market failure.” The core topic of today’s show is a discussion of the economics of climate change and why the most efficient path forward to a cleaner environment is a free market, not big-government, command-and-control economics.
Dec 1, 2015
In this episode I discuss the reasoning behind the Left’s seemingly conflicting goals of ever-increasing tax rates and then proposing legions of new tax credits. As always, the “why” matters and I explain it in this episode. I also address President Obama’s bizarre statements at the Paris climate conference on both mass shooting incidents and on the economics of climate change. The mass shootings statement was just plain inaccurate and his statement on climate change indicated an understanding of the economics of climate change but a total disconnect on the actual solutions.
Nov 30, 2015
In this episode I discuss the inexcusable rhetoric by some on the left after the Colorado shooting incident where the subject entered the Planned Parenthood facility. I also address the current debate on Capitol Hill about education funding and a relatively simple fix, if we could muster the courage to put politics aside. The core topic of today’s show is the Obama administration’s attempt to insert itself into the private pension market and put taxpayers on the hook for the bill.
Nov 27, 2015
In this episode I discuss Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser and her questionable response to a question about the city’s overly restrictive firearms laws. I also discuss a whistleblower report that immigrant children are being place with people with extensive criminal histories, including child molestation. The core topic of the show is a misleading opinion piece written by the NY Times’ Paul Krugman about the Obamacare death spiral. Krugman sacrifices any remaining credibility he has left to defend the indefensible.
Nov 25, 2015
In this episode’s “Just the Facts Matt,” with Matt Palumbo, I discuss the Left’s fascination with hammering American businesses into submission with our unnecessarily high corporate tax rate. I also address the Obamacare death spiral and how this is a frightening harbinger of our healthcare future.
