In this episode I discuss the explosive national debt and what this means for both our economy, and the American families struggling to stay ahead. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/feds-will-ring-in-2016-buried-in-debt-of-58000-per-person/article/2579270

 

I also address the issue of gerrymandering, and how this distorts and impacts the political process and takes away the power of your vote. http://townhall.com/columnists/michaelbarone/2015/12/29/supreme-court-grapples-once-again-with-redistricting-n2097759/page/full

 

The core topic of this episode is a discussion of the disturbing confiscation of the bank accounts of an Oregon couple who refused to violate their religious beliefs and what this means for the future of religious liberty.

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 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.

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

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

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
