We’re opening a new thread today, examining national security
issues that are not on the public’s radar screen, but which may
affect us in the near future.

The first issue revolves around internet security during times of
crisis. Should the government have the power to shut down the
internet? Bartlett Cleland from the Institute for Policy
Innovation (www.ipi.org) details broad new legislation to do just
that.

As America waffles between staggering back to capitalism or
plunging into socialism, China flees socialism at a breathtaking
pace; it’s becoming the world’s next economic powerhouse. Why
can’t Americans get the message? Producer Robert Compton returns
to the program with his latest documentary about a reality show
called “Win in China,” which awards investment capital to the best
Chinese entrepreneurs.

Left-wing media this week has been decrying those disruptions at
town hall meetings on healthcare. But wait! Disruptions have been
a staple of progressive tactics for five decades. John’s boralogue
recalls the history of violent left-wing protests, even this year
and then reads Saul Alinsky’s instructions from “Rules for
Radicals,” which puts a lot of current events into a perspective
light.
