Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone.
When did we become a democracy instead of a republic? Would the veterans we memorialize this weekend, those who died for during WWI and WWII, recognize what is passed off to us as democracy today? They would have recognized it for what it is: Bolshevism, because the values of the American educational system were radically different than the one we have today.
In 50 years, how did Marxist ideology manage to get such a toehold on a country that used to prize its freedom? Dr. Jake Jacobs, Ph.D., (www.jjusa.org) is author of “Mobocracy, The Cultural & Political War to Destroy Our Republic Under God.” We’ll discuss the long march of Marxism through western academic and political culture, which is transforming our society and abolishing the very rights our founders enshrined.
John’s boralogue updates the Euro situation, which is grinding towards an obvious conclusion as Europe’s socialists attempt to deny reality. What remains hidden from public view is the fact that this is not going to end well, and it threatens to suck in the entire world as banks around the world holding European investments implode.Read More
When reality sets in, politicians panic, because that’s when politics-as-usual disintegrates in the face of an onrushing crisis.
During the endgame of inflationary policy, revenues fall and governments respond by pushing tax rates to the firewall, causing revenues to plummet even further; a lesson governments like the state of California never seem to learn. Tom Giovanetti from the Institute for Policy Innovation (www.ipi.org) explains why soak-the-rich schemes always fail, while impoverishing the middle class at the same time.
Then we’ll pursue the current monetary situation in Europe with David McAlvany from the McAlvany Weekly Commentary (www.mcalvany.com).
Naomi Schaefer Riley was canned off the “Chronicle of Higher Education” blog after she made politically incorrect statements about race studies programs at universities. Academia is becoming the most closed-minded environment in the western world. We’ll discuss the implications of this as well as Naomi’s subsequent op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal entitled, “The Academic Mob Rules.”
We’ve often spoken how the consensus process (Delphi Technique) involves the use of change agent facilitators. When the process starts, the outcome is predetermined, but the participants don’t know that. Mesa County, Colorado, just discovered this the hard way. We’ll run clips from a Colorado radio program to demonstrate the point.
John’s boralogue points out that there really was never any doubt where everything would wind up once the Euro crisis began, placing us at the leading edge of much bigger storms to come. Once on a tax-inflate-spend money train, governments can’t get off the wild ride until the train finally goes off a trestle. Today we’ll give you a road map of the exciting journey upon which we find ourselves.Read More
We hear many progressives including Supreme Court justices say we should emulate the European Union when considering rights in lieu of our own constitution. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg even said she wouldn’t recommend our constitution for a new country. But if one checks on Europe, we see that those rights, especially freedom of speech are rapidly dying. Karen Lugo is co-director of the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence (www.townhall.com and www.nationalreview.com) and founder of the Libertas-West Project.
Two worldviews are slugging it out in the West; the first based in Judeo-Christianity and capitalism, the other based in secular socialism. C.S. Lewis was a staunch opponent of the type of statism today’s secularists are proposing. David Theroux, founder of the Independent Institute (www.independent.org and www.lewissociety.org), makes his debut on the program.
John’s boralogue does a brief analysis of how Europe got itself into the economic predicament in which it finds itself. We’ll be doing a more in-depth analysis next week.Read More
