Merry Christmas everyone. We’re taking time off today, as we hope you’re doing.

How did America get to the point in just 50 years that it has completely up-ended itself? What does this mean in the rough times to come, now that the country has chopped itself loose from its reference points? Regardless of what everyone else does, what can we do to help ourselves and each other?

To answer some of these questions, we’ll air John’s speech at the Strategic Trends conference in October of this year.

State Nullification and Runaway Spending

John’s extended boralogue links a series of events from the week, explaining why young people have a hard time thinking clearly and critically and why they are susceptible to group think and manipulation. That moves us into the fallacy of the week: equivocation.

It’s very clear that Washington has us on a course to economic disaster with the throttle wide open, and the American public likes it because no one wants their entitlements cut. Can something brake that? Dr. Thomas Woods, Ph.D., (www.tomwoods.com) from the Ludwig von Mises Institute is author of “Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century.”

Around Christmas time we have become accustomed to fights over nativity displays and separation of church and state. But what would the founders have thought? Historian Dr. Thomas Kidd, Ph.D., is author of “God of Liberty: A Religious History of the American Revolution.”

When the Dollar Dies

We’re clearing out the show today to focus on the end of civilization as we know it. Well, OK, maybe that’s a bit extreme.

This week a lot of data points moved cross the international monetary scene, which are setting stage for the next 48-70 months of geopolitical activity and conflict. That’s why it’s important to focus on this in-depth.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke stated on CBS “60 Minutes” he’ll inflate as much as he needs to. Meanwhile congress is running oblivious to the onrushing economic storms and acting as if business as usual is the norm, infighting over agendas which have no bearing on reality. Thus, a course toward the death of the dollar has been set. In essence, it’s out of control.

First, John does an extended boralogue connecting the data points from this week. Then Dave McAlvany (www.mcalvany.com) from the McAlvany Weekly Commentary joins the show for an in-depth look at what happens historically when a currency dies and where we stand in comparison to that.

Imagine Where We Will Be

John does a two-part boralogue this week tying together multiple news stories and showing the direction away from freedom we are heading when it comes to personal security. The second half continues a thread on what happens when money dies.

In the 1920s and 1930s progressive socialists and Marxist communists were proud to be kissing cousins. This was especially true of humanist educators like John Dewey. But then progressives pretended to sever the link and went underground. Why and how then did we arrive in the 21st Century with so many Marxist ideas being taught in our schools? Former Idaho State Representative Curtis Bowers (www.agendadocumentary.com) discusses his new documentary, “Agenda: Grinding America Down.”

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is trying to seize control of the internet by end-running congress through the implementation of “net neutrality” provisions by means of regulations. Phil Kerpen, Vice President of Americans for Prosperity (www.americansforprosperity.org), heads up an effort to block this.

More on the dying dollar thread as we connect with Craig Smith (www.crashingthedollar.com) to discuss his new book, “Crashing the Dollar.”
