Between Scylla and Charybdis

On today’s show we are officially pronouncing the perfect financial storm is underway after so many years of warning about its approach. Today’s show is highly focused. Do not think for a moment that the proposed bailout is going to stop the storm’s progress. It will only settle the first squall.

First, John executes another extended boralogue explaining the evolution of our current Fannie and Freddie crisis, why congress and the fed are almost out of options, and where the perfect financial storm will head after this. We find ourselves entering stage four of inflationary cycles, where citizens are outraged but there are few options; much pain and no gain. The end is that taxpayers will have to foot the bill. Thus we are sailing between Scylla and Charybdis.

Then we’ll honor a promise to you and pick up the Russian thread we began a couple of weeks back featuring a long conversation with a former army intelligence officer, who toured all of the Soviet Union both before and after its collapse. Ralph Peters is the Russian-speaking author of “Looking for Trouble,” and he is the sole guest featured today.

The Progress of Progressives

What a Show! So much going on this week it’s hard to cram it all into one show. So we won’t try. Gee, that was easy.

Progressive philosophy emerged during this election as a long- standing major influence in hard left politics. But many progressives won’t admit their philosophy is rooted squarely in Marxist ideology even as it masquerades as something related to freedom and democracy. John executes the longest boralogue in the show’s history examining progressive philosophy.

Then we interview Win McCormick, author of “You Don’t Know Me,” a book detailing the sexual immorality promulgated by the conservative right. We found it interesting that the book’s foundation is based on a study by Theodor Adorno, a member of the Frankfurt School which promoted progressive Marxist philosophy in America since the 1930s. It does seem to be everywhere.

After that, the downing of Korean Air KAL007 25 years is revisited from a few weeks ago as Dr. Dennis Cuddy, author of “The Globalists,” trying to figure out why the congressional investigation into survivors was mysteriously cut off.

At show’s end, John does a quick update on the week’s events, Russian plans to use treasury bills as a weapon, and finally complies with listener requests to reveal what he thinks about Governor Palin as a vice presidential candidate.

It’s the Sun – Not Your SUV Stupid!

Boy what a week! The financial structure almost went over the side with a bang, but a Saturday huddle of the financial powers halted the disaster; one more time. Wonder how long they can keep working miracles at everyone else’s expense?

As hurricanes approached the U.S. coast over the last week, the perfect financial storm scuttered close behind and it’s closing in faster than we originally thought. This week’s Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac fiasco was a major storm front with numerous banks set to tumble behind it.

John kicks off today’s show with a time line of financial storm tracking so you’ll understand the events of the months to come. Kevin Orrick from the McAlvany Weekly Commentary (www.mcalvany.com) jumps on board with some insight to help listeners cope.

Global warming alarmists are now squeezed in a slowly-tightening vice: growing evidence that the sun is responsible for climate change with waning evidence that CO2 emissions are the culprit, coupled with a growing energy/economic crisis warring against proposed solutions like increased taxes and regulations. Alas, what’s an alarmist to do?

John Zyrkowski is author of the book, “It’s the Sun, Not Your SUV.”

He highlights the serious damage global warming policies are already inflicting, especially in poor countries and cites the IPCC’s own data to show the sun is the chief cause of climate change.

You’re in the Competition Game

Back from vacation and a busy show today, and guess what? We’re not going to cover the elections. Phew!

First we’ll commence a new mini-series on the world seen from a Russian standpoint. Dr. Edward Erickson is co-author of the “The Soul and Barbed Wire,” and he joins us for the first part of the program.

The concept of “competition” in education is anathema to American educrats. They believe in an egalitarian, communitarian approach where no one excels if everyone doesn’t excel. Unfortunately our competitors around the world don’t share that philosophy. They’re educating students to take competition head on. Venture capitalist Robert Compton (www.2MMinutes.com) produced a documentary entitled “2 Million Minutes,” contrasting education in the U.S., China and India. The difference is alarming. Once you watch it, you’ll know we’re in trouble and need to take action.

And finally in ongoing monitoring of the new great game, John’s boralogue reports on a Russian Channel One interview featuring President Dimitry Medvedev last weekend, who laid out Russia’s new foreign policy. Western journalists didn’t seem to notice.
