In this episode’s “sticky notes” I discuss the shocking Canadian electoral victory of Justin Trudeau, another ideological liberal running on the politics of redistribution. There is a troubling magnetism to the politics of theft and envy that we must attack before it’s too late. I also address the record federal tax revenues brought in and the government’s failure, even flush with new cash, to balance its books. If not now, then when?
The core topic of today’s show is an analysis of the policies being proposed by presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and how they are bedrocked in greed and envy, not sound economics or morality.

In this episode’s “sticky notes” I discuss the disastrous Federal Reserve quantitative easing program and why it distorted, and slowed down, our economic activity. Despite this, former Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke continues to defend this program. I also discuss the state of California and its leveraging of its massive population to implement a liberal agenda across the country and the means by which it is accomplishing this.
The core topic of today’s show is a discussion of the Common Core education standards which have become a flash-point for Conservatives fighting for educational innovation and freedom. I explain the reasons why this program has been so damaging to the quality of education and the ability of local governments to control their own schools.

In this episode’s “sticky notes” I discuss why a presidential campaign’s “burn rate” or, the amount of campaign funds they are spending as a percentage of their total funds raised in a period, is critical for establishment-type candidates but not as significant a factor for grassroots candidates. I also address President Obama’s absurd claim that declining union membership is a major factor impeding our struggling economy.
The core topic of today’s show is an analysis of former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s claims that the Federal Reserve’s unprecedented interventions in the economy after the recession helped the economy recover. In today’s Wall Street Journal Alan Blinder and Mark Zandi defend these, and other government interventions in the economy, despite common sense dictating otherwise.

In this episode’s “sticky notes” I discuss the persistent myths about the housing crisis which the left promulgates to avoid talking about the federal government’s substantial role in causing the crisis.
The core topic of today’s show is the ongoing Obamacare death spiral. As the costs of Obamacare plans grow due to the many mandates for coverage, and persistent third-party payer effects, the pool of insured people will only be those with the costliest ailments. This will cause more dramatic cost hikes and eventually Obamacare insurance plans will be too expensive for Americans to afford.

In this episode’s “sticky notes” I discuss President Obama’s threat to bypass the US Senate again on an international climate treaty which should be submitted to the Senate for ratification. When questioned on this, a White House spokesman said about the Senate “it’s hard to take them seriously.” I also discuss Donald Trump’s claim that he should have Secret Service protection and how this process works.
The core topic of the show is a breakdown of some of the more nonsensical policy proposals addressed during last night’s Democratic debate. Between the 18 trillion dollars in “free stuff” Bernie Sanders is proposing, and Hillary Clinton’s assertion that the State Department “allowed” her to maintain a private server, there was a lot of nonsense spread around last night.

In this episode's "sticky-notes" I discuss the repeated attempts to resurrect the Export-Import Bank and DC-Insiders' love affair with crony capitalism. I discuss the scandal involving Hillary Clinton's email server and the massive leak of national security information brewing. I also discuss new Obama administration regulations on financial advisers that will hurt the poor and the middle-class.
I end the show with a detailed discussion of the government's destructive role in the healthcare arena and how its payment model is going to bankrupt you and endanger your health.
Oct 9, 2015
In this episode I discuss the Obama regulatory agenda and how this mound of new red-tape is costing you significant sums of money, while also creating the conditions for environmental degradation. I also discuss the liberal fascination with the rule of law when the laws align with their far-left ideology but, their complete disregard for the rule of law when the law conflicts with their agenda.
I conclude the show with some facts and figures you will need to debate your liberal friends, and persuadable voters, about tax policy. The left refuses to tell the truth about the real effects of tax cuts on both economic growth and federal tax revenue.
Oct 8, 2015
In today’s episode I discuss an email I received from Angela H. about yesterday’s show on free-trade facts and myths and her family’s experience with NAFTA. I also address the U.S. economy’s investment shortfall and explain some plausible theories as to why corporate revenue is strong but, corporate investment is weak during the Obama “recovery.” I conclude the “sticky notes” section of the show with a discussion of Donald Trump’s comments on eminent domain and the billions of dollars fleeing high-tax, deep-blue states, for the tax-friendlier confines of many red-states.
I conclude today’s show with a deeper discussion about President Obama, the GOP-led congress, and the many media-propagated myths about government shutdowns.

In this episode I discuss President Obama's shameless efforts to use the Umpqua tragedy for political gamesmanship.
Oct 5, 2015
Former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke makes the case in the Wall Street Journal today that the Fed "saved the economy." In this episode I discuss the many reasons that this is untrue.
Oct 4, 2015
There are some liberal myths that simply won't go away. Whether it's the mythical Clinton "surplus", or the assertion that the Bush tax cuts "cost the government revenue", they are simply not true. In this episode I debunk these myths so you can too.
Sep 27, 2015
In this episode I discuss the supporters of Bernie Sanders and their commitment to socialism, and their lack of commitment to historical facts.

Aug 30, 2015
Each candidate running for the presidency has positive and negative attributes but, Donald Trump's recent stance on tax policy is wrong.
Aug 24, 2015

Aug 16, 2015
What issues really won, and really lost, in the GOP debate. I cover that, and more, in this week's episode.
Aug 9, 2015

Aug 2, 2015
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was asked what the difference is between a Democrat and a Socialist and she could not answer the question. In this episode I explain, in detail, why; because the difference is small and growing smaller.
Jul 29, 2015

Jun 26, 2015
