When Supermajority and Superstorm Collide

Ten days remain in silly season. Whew! Only 1,473 days to go until the presidential election of 2012. That neatly coincides with the economic and energy superstorm crisis window.

So what happens if the U.S. elects a Democratic super-majority and that collides with the perfect financial storm, which collides with the perfect energy storm? We’ll try to sketch that out with Dr. Merrill Matthews (www.ipi.org) from the Institute for Policy Innovation.

How about a resurgence of the fairness doctrine? It’s already being discussed. Barbara Comstock is a First Amendment consultant to the National Association of Broadcasters and we look at how it might be implemented on broadcast radio and on the internet.

Finally we’ll have a candid conversation with Jiovanne del Cristo (www.lwym.org), who produces a podcast for bilingual youth.

The Nanotechnological Transhuman Cyborg

Boy now that’s a show title!

The new emergent scientific religion of transhumanism seeks to use nanotechnology to design super humans and super soldiers of the future: part human, part machine. Something doesn’t seem quite right here. Dr. Martin Erdmann, (www.verax.ws) senior scientist at University Hospital in Basel, Switzerland discusses the ethical implications for Christians.

Then we’ll review the life of a forgotten founding father, Luther Martin and his predictions about inherent defects contained in our constitution. A lot of them seem applicable to our current crisis. It seems every effort to construct Utopia on earth arrives with built-in seeds of self-destruction. Bill Kaufmann is author of “Forgotten Founder, Drunken Prophet.”

John’s boralogue airs clips of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s inaugural address of March, 1933, and compares the president’s promises then with what politicians are saying today. As you might have guessed, nothing’s changed and nothing’s solved.

It’s Worse than We Thought

Different kind of show today. Must bail faster; must bail faster. But the bailouts aren’t working as an atmosphere of fear and confidence failure envelopes the global markets.

The perfect financial storm has hit harder and more rapidly than we anticipated. John takes the first two segments of the program for a boralogue and audio clips on the current status of things.

In segment three we’ll hear from Congressman Ron Paul. Even 24 months ago, the other Republican presidential candidates considered him a pariah but has been proven correct in his decades-long message about the need for monetary reform.

As we enter this major paradigm shift, John provides some pointers on surviving in a time when things are in chaos and change.

Finally in the last part of the program we shift to a conversation with Carol Jose, (www.caroljose.com), who authored a book on POWs entitled, “You are Not Forgotten: A Family’s Quest for Truth.”

If you’ve got issues from the current crisis you’d like us to address, we would like to hear from you by email.

The Four Stages of Inflation

Bailout bailout bailout. It’s hard work ramming something through congress that Americans don’t want. Unfortunately politicians and the Fed are between a rock and a hard place now: they can’t afford to do something and they can’t afford not. This is what happens when a country enters advanced stages of inflation; all pain and no gain.

Today’s first guest is Jim Puplava from the Financial Sense Newshour (www.financialsense.com) to explain the four classic stages of inflation since the U.S. and much of the West has set itself on this self-destructive course. Once you’re on it, you can’t get off.

Then we’ll examine the Violence Against Women Act; well-intentioned but now causing a lot of unintended consequences against people it shouldn’t. Time to reform the act. Ron Grignol comes on board for this part of the program.

John’s boralogue ties up loose ends about the economy, the bailout, socialism and exactly where we’re headed despite the blather.
