All Episodes

In this episode I discuss the troubling drift of the Democratic Party into anti-Americanism. Whether it's an outsized focus on division politics, or their anti-American economic rhetoric, they are committed to winning elections at any cost. We cannot be singly focused on GOP intra-party struggles while the socialism movement festers within the American left.

Jan 26, 2016
In this episode I discuss the Obama administration's weaponization of government through the extensive use of discretionary rule-making and interpretation. Whether it's Title IX in education, the interpretation of the EPA's Clean Power Plant rule, the use of process to punish, or manufactured government charges of racism to attack free market industries, this administration has dangerously expanded the footprint of government in our lives.

Jan 19, 2016

Jan 12, 2016

Finally, I address President Obama's attempted use of data and logic to defend his attack on the Second Amendment. But, by his own definition, he is making the case for, not against, gun ownership.

Jan 4, 2016

In this episode I discuss the strange behavior of "fact-checking" website Politifact. They attempted to refute the Lt. Governor of Texas' data on increasing gun ownership being correlated with a decrease in crime by disingenuously claiming it was "mostly false," despite acknowledging in the piece that the data is accurate.

I also address the misleading talking points Bernie Sanders supporters are using to defend his support for a massive expansion of the federal government and taxation.


The final "sticky notes" story is a discussion of the real data on tax cuts, absent the cheap talking points. The data may surprise you.

The core topic of today's show is a fact based case showing the damage the Obama agenda has done to the American economy and our future prosperity. The numbers are disturbing.
