The Renegade Republican with Dan Bongino




All Episodes
Now displaying: March, 2016
Mar 31, 2016

In this episode I discuss the real reason that socialism fails everywhere, and every place, it is implemented. While the distribution of income and capital in an economy can be controlled by an oppressive socialist government, even oppressors cannot control ideas.

Mar 30, 2016
In this episode I discuss China's currency manipulation and how it contributes to our trade deficit.
I also address the relationship between excessive money printing by governments, interest rates, and international wage imbalances. 
Finally, I address two fundamental questions you should be asking people who support socialism. 
Mar 29, 2016

In this episode I discuss the damage Obamacare has done to our healthcare system. Even using the CBO's own projections, we see that Obamacare may have cost nearly ten million Americans their health insurance.
I also address Georgia Governor Nathan Deal's veto of a religious liberty bill which is indicative of a larger culture war being fought by the American far-left.
Finally, I address the Japanese economy and why their problems are a window into our future.


Mar 28, 2016

I also address the far-left's seemingly infinite capacity to create a problem using government, and to then use government to fix the government-create problem. 
Finally, I address the disastrous Japanese economic polices being replicated here in the United States.

I also address the economic hypocrisy of many liberals with regard to income inequality.
Mar 24, 2016

I also address the federal government's involvement in nearly every important component of my life. 

Mar 23, 2016

I also address a piece in the far-left which attempts to discredit the vibrant economy of the Reagan years. 

Mar 21, 2016

In this episode I discuss the Obama administration's insatiable desire to diminish U.S. sovereignty and implement global governance. The latest iteration of this is the Obama administration's giveaway of the Internet.
I also address the disappearance of federalism and the disturbing growth of centralization. This is evident in the Obamacare versus the Little Sisters of the Poor case.
Mar 18, 2016
In this episode I address the complete failure of the Venezuelan economy and how that failure corresponds to the implementation of socialist economic principles. This should serve as a cautionary tale for liberals but, it has become another opportunity to apologize for the savagery of socialism.

In this episode I address the Secret Service's role with regard to constitutionally-protected protest activity.

I also address the misguided liberal belief that government bureaucrats have the information necessary to make "investments" in the economy.
Finally, I discuss the "diaper loophole." This new liberal plan to subsidize the purchase of diapers is another example of government creating a problem and then using more government to "fix" it.
Mar 15, 2016
In this episode I discuss the anti-free speech strategy of the far left and how they are using the GOP primary to achieve their speech suppression goals.
I also address the NY Times' war on opportunity for struggling inner-city students.

Mar 14, 2016
In this episode I provide a detailed explanation, through my experience as a Secret Service agent and a political candidate, of the tactics the far-left is using to silence their political opposition. I walk you through their battle-plan and explain their "heckler's veto" strategy.
I also address the far-left's economic strategy for gaining control of the economy.
Mar 11, 2016

I also address the potential for another economic crisis and specific policy mistakes being repeated.
Finally, I address the hypocrisy embedded in liberalism and the disturbing comments by the Attorney General on Capitol Hill yesterday.

Mar 10, 2016

I also discuss the exploding Irish economy and the role, or lack thereof, of government in this expansion. 
Finally, I address how the world's central banks are causing income inequality.

Mar 4, 2016
In this episode I address the chaos which broke out in the scientific community recently when a scientist dared to credit The Creator for the design of the human hand. Our place in the universe is more readily explained when you accept some basic facts.
I also address the catastrophic collapse of the Brazilian economy after heavy government intervention and massive "stimulus" programs. 
This quote is particularly telling "The leftist government's generous spending programs were credited with lifting millions out of severe poverty, while Chinese demand for the country's mineral and agricultural riches paid the bills."
The Brazilian collapse, and the collapse of the Oregon and Vermont Obamacare exchanges, are potent examples of the government's economic information, and expertise, problem with regard to allocating assets. Without prices, they don't have the information needed.
Finally, I address the sorry state of the U.S. economy through a series of charts which paint a disturbing picture.
Mar 3, 2016

Finally, I address the widespread confusion, among the supporters of Bernie Sanders, about what power is.
