 Gosnell was no ordinary abortion practitioner.

 He jabbed scissors in the backs of children’s spines in order to complete abortions. he killed a woman in a botched legal abortion and injured other women in failed abortions as well. And he ran an illegal pill distribution scam out of his Philadelphia, Pennsylvania abortion clinic.

 Although the owner and operator of the Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society abortion business is in jail now awaiting trial after state and local authorities failed to hold him accountable, a new film called 3801 Lancaster, the address of his abortion clinic, exposes the gruesome details of what he did. Gosnell is currently awaiting trial on 8 counts of murder

 The 20 minute film is directed by David Altrogge and produced by Jennifer Thompson.

 Troy Newman of Operation Rescue endorsed the short film in an email to LifeNews, saying, “Gosnell and several of his employees were arrested and charged after a raid on his clinic revealed what reporters called a “house of horrors” where non-physicians conducted shoddy late-term abortions in squalid conditions. This video, written and directed by David Altrogge, is a “must-see” especially as we mark the 40th memorial of Roe v. Wade.”

 Selection 2- ECLIPSE OF REASON - Live Abortion Documentary / Pro-Life Anti-Abortion.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nff8I2FVnI&feature=share&list=PLBA715985D612CB8A

Published with permission from Bernard N. Nathanson, M.D. We would like to express our special thanks and gratitude for all of the lives saved by Dr. Nathanson. Introduced by Charlton Heston, an Academy Award winner and a conscientious citizen who takes an active part in community and film industry affairs. He urges the news media which he charged have "failed badly to inform the public on the abortion issue" to use the film Eclipse of Reason to promote a better informed public. This film produced by Bernard N. Nathanson, M.D. documents the intra-uterine life of a little boy at 5 months of age as seen through a fetoscope - a camera placed inside the pregnant uterus. Riveting images of a late abortion are then shown with a camera both inside and outside the uterus. Consistently verifiable statistics emphasize that this horror takes place 400 times a day in the US alone. In addition, there are deeply moving interviews with the other victims of abortion, women who have been irreparably injured by abortion, physically and psychologically.

Show 996 Book- Who’s the Fairest of Them All? The Truth about Opportunity, Taxes, and Wealth in America

2013-06-28
Length: 34s

Show 996 Dennis Prager talks to Stephen Moore, senior economics writer for the Wall Street Journal editorial page and a member of the editorial board. His new book is Who’s the Fairest of Them All? The Truth about Opportunity, Taxes, and Wealth in America… The true “progressive” agenda as embodied by the budget offered by Congressional Progressive Caucus is far more leftist than most people realize.

 Book Description

President Obama has declared that the standard by which all policies and policy outcomes are judged is fairness. He declared in 2011 that "we've sought to ensure that every citizen can count on some basic measure of security. We do this because we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any moment, might face hard times, might face bad luck, might face a crippling illness or a layoff." And that, he says, is why we have a social safety net. He says that returning to a standard of fairness where anyone can get ahead through hard work is the "issue of our time." And perhaps it is.

 This book explores what it means for our economic system and our economic results to be "fair." Does it mean that everyone has a fair shot? Does it mean that everyone gets the same amount? Does it mean the government can assert the authority to forcibly take from the successful and give to the poor? Is government supposed to be Robin Hood determining who gets what? Or should the market decide that? The surprising answer: nations with free market systems that allow people to get ahead based on their own merit and achievement are the fairest of them all.

Show 995 Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy by Andrew C McCarthy

2013-06-26
Length: 35s

Show 995 Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy by Andrew C McCarthy

 Overview of the Book- The first fundamental truth about the "Arab Spring" is that there never was one. The salient fact of the Middle East, the only one, is Islam. The Islam that shapes the Middle East inculcates in Muslims the self-perception that they are members of a civilization implacably hostile to the West. The United States is a competitor to be overcome, not the herald of a culture to be embraced.

Is this self-perception based on objective truth? Does it reflect an accurate construction of Islam? It is over these questions that American officials and Western intellectuals obsess. Yet the questions are irrelevant. This is not a matter of right or wrong, of some posture or policy whose subtle tweaking or outright reversal would change the facts on the ground. This is simply, starkly, the way it is.

 Every human heart does not yearn for freedom. In the Islam of the Middle East, "freedom" means something very nearly the opposite of what the concept connotes to Westerners – it is the freedom that lies in total submission to Allah and His law. That law, sharia, is diametrically opposed to core components of freedom as understood in the West – beginning with the very idea that man is free to make law for himself, irrespective of what Allah has ordained. It is thus delusional to believe, as the West's Arab Spring fable insists, that the region teems with Jamal al-Madisons holding aloft the lamp of liberty. Do such revolutionary reformers exist? Of course they do . . . but in numbers barely enough to weave a fictional cover story. When push came to shove – and worse – the reformers were overwhelmed, swept away by a tide of Islamic supremacism, the dynamic, consequential mass movement that beckons endless winter.

 That is the real story of the Arab Spring – that, and the Pandora's Box that opens when an American administration aligns with that movement, whose stated goal is to destroy America.

 Meet the Author

Andrew C. McCarthy was a top federal prosecutor involved in some of the most significant cases in recent history. Decorated with the Justice Department’s highest honors, he retired from government in 2003, after helping launch the 9/11 investigation. He is one of America’s most persuasive voices on national security issues and author of the bestsellers Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad and The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America. Currently, he is a senior fellow at the National Review Institute in Washington, D.C., and a contributing editor at National Review.

The End Is Near and It's Going to Be Awesome: How Going Broke Will Leave America Richer, Happier, and More Secure by Kevin D. Williamson

 Overview-  The End Is Near and It's Going to Be Awesome is a radical re-visioning of what government is, a powerful analysis of why it doesn't work, and an exploration of the innovative solutions spontaneously emerging thanks to the fortunate failure of politics.

 Every year, consumer goods and services get better, cheaper, and more widely available while critical necessities delivered by government grow more expensive, even as their quality declines. The reason for this paradox is simple: politics. Not bad politics, not liberal politics, not conservative politics, not politics corrupted by big money or distorted by special-interest groups, but the simple practice of delivering goods and services through federal, state, and local governments and their obsolete decision-making practices.

 National Review columnist Kevin Williamson describes the crisis of the modern welfare state in the era of globalization and argues that the crucial political failures of our time—education, health care, social security, and monetary policy—are due not to ideology but the nature of politics itself. Meanwhile, those who can't or won't turn to the state for goods and services—from homeschoolers to Wall Street to organized crime—are experimenting with replacing the outmoded social software of the state with market-derived alternatives.

 Williamson compellingly analyzes the government's numerous failures and reports on the solutions that people all over the country are discovering. You will meet homeschoolers who have abandoned public schools; see inside private courtrooms that administer the law beyond government; encounter entrepreneurs developing everything from private currencies to shadow intelligence agencies rivaling the CIA; and learn about the remarkably peaceable enforcement of justice in the allegedly lawless Wild West.

 As our outmoded twentieth-century government collapses under the weight of its own incompetence and inefficiency, Williamson points to the green shoots of the brave new world that is already being born.

  

Conscience and Its Enemies: Confronting the Dogmas of Our Age by Robert P. George

 Overview-  “Many in elite circles yield to the temptation to believe that anyone who disagrees with them is a bigot or a religious fundamentalist. Reason and science, they confidently believe, are on their side. With this book, I aim to expose the emptiness of that belief.” —From the introduction

 Assaults on religious liberty and traditional morality are growing fiercer. Here, at last, is the counterattack.

 Showcasing the talents that have made him one of America’s most acclaimed and influential thinkers, Robert P. George explodes the myth that the secular elite represents the voice of reason. In fact, George shows, it is on the elite side of the cultural divide where the prevailing views frequently are nothing but articles of faith. Conscience and Its Enemies reveals the bankruptcy of these too often smugly held orthodoxies while presenting powerfully reasoned arguments for classical virtues.

  

The Savior Generals: How Five Great Commanders Saved Wars That Were Lost-From Ancient Greece to Iraq by Victor Davis Hanson

 Overview- Leading military historian Victor Davis Hanson returns to non-fiction in The Savior Generals, a set of brilliantly executed pocket biographies of five generals who single-handedly saved their nations from defeat in war. War is rarely a predictable enterprise—it is a mess of luck, chance, and incalculable variables. Today's sure winner can easily become tomorrow's doomed loser. Sudden, sharp changes in fortune can reverse the course of war.

 These intractable circumstances are sometimes mastered by leaders of genius—asked at the eleventh hour to save a hopeless conflict, created by others, often unpopular with politics and the public. These savior generals often come from outside the established power structure, employ radical strategies, and flame out quickly. Their careers often end in controversy. But their dramatic feats of leadership are vital slices of history—not merely as stirring military narrative, but as lessons on the dynamic nature of consensus, leadership, and destiny.

 Becoming Europe: Economic Decline, Culture, and How America Can Avoid a European Future by Samuel Gregg

 Overview- “We’re becoming like Europe.” This expression captures many Americans’ sense that something has changed in American economic life since the Great Recession’s onset in 2008: that an economy once characterized by commitments to economic liberty, rule of law, limited government, and personal responsibility has drifted in a distinctly “European” direction.

 Americans see, across the Atlantic, European economies faltering under enormous debt; overburdened welfare states; governments controlling close to fifty percent of the economy; high taxation; heavily regulated labor markets; aging populations; and large numbers of public-sector workers. They also see a European political class seemingly unable—and, in some cases, unwilling—to implement economic reform, and seemingly more concerned with preserving its own privileges. Looking at their own society, Americans are increasingly asking themselves: “Is this our future?”

In Becoming Europe, Samuel Gregg examines economic culture—the values and institutions that inform our economic priorities—to explain how European economic life has drifted in the direction of what Alexis de Tocqueville called “soft despotism,” and the ways in which similar trends are manifesting themselves in the United States. America, Gregg argues, is not yet Europe; the good news is that economic decline need not be its future. The path to recovery lies in the distinctiveness of American economic culture. Yet there are ominous signs that some of the cultural foundations of America’s historically unparalleled economic success are being corroded in ways that are not easily reversible—and the European experience should serve as the proverbial canary in the coal mine.

 

 'Til Faith Do Us Part: The Rise of Interfaith Marriage and the Future of American Religion, Family, and Society by Naomi Schaefer Riley

 Overview- In the last decade, 45% of all marriages in the U.S. were between people of different faiths. The rapidly growing number of mixed-faith families has become a source of hope, encouraging openness and tolerance among religious communities that historically have been insular and suspicious of other faiths.

 Yet as Naomi Schaefer Riley demonstrates in 'Til Faith Do Us Part, what is good for society as a whole often proves difficult for individual families: interfaith couples, Riley shows, are less happy than others and certain combinations of religions are more likely to lead to divorce. Drawing on in-depth interviews with married and once-married couples, clergy, counselors, sociologists, and others, Riley shows that many people enter into interfaith marriages without much consideration of the fundamental spiritual, doctrinal, and practical issues that divide them. Couples tend to marry in their twenties and thirties, a time when religion diminishes in importance, only to return to faith as they grow older and raise children, suffer the loss of a parent, or experience other major life challenges. Riley suggests that a devotion to diversity as well as to a romantic ideal blinds many interfaith couples to potential future problems. Even when they recognize deeply held differences, couples believe that love conquers all. As a result, they fail to ask the necessary questions about how they will reconcile their divergent worldviews-about raising children, celebrating holidays, interacting with extended families, and more. An obsession with tolerance at all costs, Riley argues, has made discussing the problems of interfaith marriage taboo.

 'Til Faith Do Us Part is a fascinating exploration of the promise and peril of interfaith marriage today. It will be required reading not only for interfaith couples or anyone considering interfaith marriage, but for all those interested in learning more about this significant, yet understudied phenomenon and the impact it is having on America.

 

7 Things You Didn't Know About Interfaith Marriage

 

By Naomi Schaeffer Riley, author of 'Til Faith Do Us Part: How Interfaith Marriage is Transforming America

 

1) 42% of marriages in the U.S. are interfaith ones. Marriages between people of two different religions are becoming more common in every area of the country, and for men and women regardless of educational status or income level.

 

2) Couples in interfaith marriages are, on average, less happy than same-faith ones. In certain faith-combinations they are more likely to divorce.

 

3) Jews are the most likely to marry out and Mormons are the least likely. Muslims, Catholics and Protestants fall somewhere in the middle.

 

4) Children of interfaith couples are more than twice as likely to adopt the faith of their mother as the faith of their father.

 

5) A quarter of couples in same-faith marriages actually started off in different faith ones.

 

6) The older you are, the more likely you are to marry outside of the faith — 67% of people who marry between 36 and 45 are in interfaith marriages.

 

7) Marrying someone of another faith makes you more likely to have a positive impression of that faith as a whole.

Length: 39s

Show 993 Thomas Sowell discusses his essay “‘Trickle Down Theory’ and ‘Tax Cuts for the Rich.’”

with guest Thomas Sowell.  Recorded on September 12, 2012

This week on Uncommon Knowledge, Hoover fellow and author Thomas Sowell discusses his essay “‘Trickle Down Theory’ and ‘Tax Cuts for the Rich.’” (39:52)
“Now anyone who studied history knows that for the first 150 years of this country the federal government did not intervene when the economy turned down. And all that time the downturns all corrected themselves; one of the most classic examples was under Warren G. Harding when, during his first year in office, he found the unemployment rate at 11.7 percent. He did absolutely nothing; he did not spend more government money, he cut back on spending. The Federal Reserve had the interest rates up at 6 or 7 percent, not down at 1 percent, where they are now. The next year unemployment was at 6.7 percent; the year after that it was 2.4 percent. So the economy has recuperative powers. I mean employers have an incentive to hire people. Workers have an incentive to get jobs. Lenders have incentives to lend.”

 Book Description

Publication Date: February 11, 2013

 Written by the team of former Special Operations warriors who run SOFREP.com, here is the definitive account of what happened before, during, and after the deadly Benghazi attack.

 On September 12th, 2012, Brandon Webb learned Glen Doherty, one of his closest friends and his former Navy SEAL teammate, was killed alongside Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and two other Americans when the U.S. State Department and CIA headquarters in Benghazi, Libya, were sieged in a shocking terrorist attack. For the next four months, Webb and his team at SOFREP.com, the world's premier Special Ops website, embarked on a relentless investigation to understand exactly what happened to their countrymen, as well as the roles played by the Obama administration, State Department, and CIA. Drawing on unmatched sources, they spoke to individuals who would talk to no one else, including fellow Special Operations team members familiar with the African theatre, and well-placed contacts in the Washington intelligence community. This is their report--an unforgettably gripping minute-by-minute narrative of the events and their aftermath as they really unfolded on that terrible day in Libya.

Show 989 Dog Company: The Boys of Pointe du Hoc--the Rangers Who Accomplished D-Day's Toughest Mission and Led the Way across Europe by Patrick K. O'Donnell


The author talks about his book at The Pritzger Military Library.

Overview of the Book-

It is said that the right man in the right place at the right time can make the difference between victory and defeat. This is the dramatic story of sixty-eight soldiers in the US Army’s 2nd Ranger Battalion, Company D—“Dog Company”—who made that difference, time and again.

From D-Day, when German guns atop Pointe du Hoc threatened the Allied landings and the men of Dog Company scaled the sheer ninety-foot cliffs to destroy them; to the slopes of Hill 400, in Germany’s Hürtgen Forest, where the Rangers launched a desperate bayonet charge across an open field; to a “quiet” section of the Ardennes, where Dog Company suddenly found itself on the tip of the spear at the Battle of the Bulge; the men of Dog Company made the difference.

America had many heroes in World War II, however, few can say that, but for them, the course of the war would have been very different. The right men, the right place, at the right time—Dog Company.

An epic World War II story of valor, sacrifice, and the Rangers who led the way to victory in Europe

Show Dennis Prager talks to Bill Bennett, friend and fellow talk show host. His new book is

Is College Worth It?: A Former United States Secretary of Education and a Liberal Arts Graduate Expose the Broken Promise of Higher Education…

Overview of the book-

Explores the answer to a critical question: Should we keep

sending our kids to college?

The American system of higher education comprises some ofthe best universities, teachers, and students the world has ever seen. Millions of students around the globe want nothing more in their life than to attend an

American university. However, many of America’s colleges and universities today have serious academic, institutional, and other performance problems, and it is quickly approaching a crisis point, if it’s not there already. Despite some excellent colleges and quality programs at many colleges, too much of higher education is wildly expensive. Students often graduate having learned little, or don’t graduate at all. They are indoctrinated with liberal politics and subjected to all types of non-academic distractions. For these reasons, many students would be better served exploring other educational alternatives.

In Is College Worth It?, William J. Bennett and David

Wilezol assess the problems of American higher education at various levels, from runaway costs to inferior academics to poor graduation rates to political indoctrination, and propose serious reforms and alternative methods for improving higher education so that it better serves our students.

Show 983 Thomas Sowell discusses his newest book, Intellectuals and Race

This week on Uncommon Knowledge, Hoover fellow and author Thomas Sowell discusses his newest book, Intellectuals and Race, which argues that the impact of intellectuals' ideas and crusades on the larger society, both past and present, is the ultimate concern. (38:27)

“The intellectuals have told them [African Americans] that the world is unjust, that other people are keeping them down, that the fact that they don't have what other people have, is somebody else's fault.  Recorded on April 23, 2013

Show 981 'Til Faith Do Us Part: The Rise of Interfaith Marriage and the Future of American Religion, Family, and Society by Naomi Schaefer Riley

2013-05-22
Length: 37s

Show 981 'Til Faith Do Us Part: The Rise of Interfaith Marriage and the Future of American Religion, Family, and Society by Naomi Schaefer Riley

 Overview of book-

In the last decade, 45% of all marriages in the U.S. were between people of different faiths. The rapidly growing number of mixed-faith families has become a source of hope, encouraging openness and tolerance among religious communities that historically have been insular and suspicious of other faiths.

Yet as Naomi Schaefer Riley demonstrates in 'Til Faith Do Us Part, what is good for society as a whole often proves difficult for individual families: interfaith couples, Riley shows, are less happy than others and certain combinations of religions are more likely to lead to divorce. Drawing on in-depth interviews with married and once-married couples, clergy, counselors, sociologists, and others, Riley shows that many people enter into interfaith marriages without much consideration of the fundamental spiritual, doctrinal, and practical issues that divide them. Couples tend to marry in their twenties and thirties, a time when religion diminishes in importance, only to return to faith as they grow older and raise children, suffer the loss of a parent, or experience other major life challenges. Riley suggests that a devotion to diversity as well as to a romantic ideal blinds many interfaith couples to potential future problems. Even when they recognize deeply held differences, couples believe that love conquers all. As a result, they fail to ask the necessary questions about how they will reconcile their divergent worldviews-about raising children, celebrating holidays, interacting with extended families, and more. An obsession with tolerance at all costs, Riley argues, has made discussing the problems of interfaith marriage taboo.

 

'Til Faith Do Us Part is a fascinating exploration of the promise and peril of interfaith marriage today. It will be required reading not only for interfaith couples or anyone considering interfaith marriage, but for all those interested in learning more about this significant, yet understudied phenomenon and the impact it is having on America.

Show 980 Coolidge by Amity Shlaes

2013-05-20
Length: 36s

Show 980 Coolidge by Amity Shlaes

Michael Medved talks to author Amity Shlaes on her new book Coolidge.

Overview of the book-

Calvin Coolidge never rated highly in polls, and history has remembered the decade in which he served as an extravagant period predating the Great Depression. Now Amity Shlaes provides a fresh look at the 1920s and our elusive thirtieth president. Coolidge reveals a triumphant period in which the nation electrified, Americans drove their first cars, and the federal deficit was replaced with a surplus—and the little-known man behind it.

 

Though dismissed as quiet and passive, Coolidge proved unafraid to take on the divisive issues of this crucial period: reining in public-sector unions, unrelentingly curtailing spending, and rejecting funding for new interest groups. Perhaps more than any other president, he understood that doing less could yield more, reducing the federal budget even as the economy grew, wages rose, taxes fell, and unemployment dropped.

Show 979  Invisible Armies: An Epic History of Guerrilla Warfare from Ancient Times to the Present by  Max Boot

Max Boot talks to the Pritzger military library.

The Pritzker Mlitary Library is highly recommended by ACU. 


Overview of the book-

“Destined to be the classic account of what may be the oldest . . . hardest form of war.”—John Nagl, Wall Street Journal

Invisible Armies presents an entirely original narrative of warfare, which demonstrates that, far from the exception, loosely organized partisan or guerrilla warfare has been the dominant form of military conflict throughout history. New York Times best-selling author and military historian Max Boot traces guerrilla warfare and terrorism from antiquity to the present, narrating nearly thirty centuries of unconventional military conflicts. Filled with dramatic analysis of strategy and tactics, as well as many memorable characters—from Italian nationalist Guiseppe Garibaldi to the “Quiet American,” Edward Lansdale—Invisible Armies is “as readable as a novel” (Michael Korda, Daily Beast) and “a timely reminder to politicians and generals of the hard-earned lessons of history” (Economist).

Show 978 Worshipping the State: How Liberalism Became Our State Religion

2013-05-15
Length: 56s

Show 978 Worshipping the State: How Liberalism Became Our State Religion

Benjamin Wiker, "Worshipping the State: How Liberalism Became Our State Religion," argues that people on the political left are seeking to establish secularism as the official religion for the U.S. He discusses his theory with Washington Post writer Krissah Thompson. (56 min. 44 sec. - April 20, 2013)

Overview of book-

Many Christians feel that they are being opposed at every turn by what seems to be a well-orchestrated political and cultural campaign to de-Christianize every aspect of Western culture. They are right, and it goes even further back than the Obama Administration.

In Worshipping the State: How Government is Replacing Religion, Benjamin Wiker argues that it is liberals who seek to establish an official state religion: one of unbelief. Wiker reveals that it was never the intention of the Founders to drive religion out of the public square with the First Amendment, but centuries of secularists and liberals have deliberately misinterpreted the establishment clause to serve their own ends: the de-Christianization of Western civilization.

The result, they hope, is government as the new oracle. Personal faith in a deity is replaced with collective dependence on government, and the diversity of religious practices and dogmas is reduced to a uniform ideological agenda. The strategy is two-pronged: drive religion out of the public square through law and by encouraging popular derision of the faithful; then, in religion’s place, erect the Church of the State to fill the human need for a higher power to look up to.

But what was done can be undone. Outlining a simple, step-by-step strategy for disestablishing the state church of secularism, Worshiping the State shows the full historical sweep of the war to those on the Christian side of the cultural battle—and as a consequence of this far more complete vantage, how to win it.

From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. Iraqi insurgents feared him so much they called him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a $20,000 bounty on his head. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow SEALs, Marines, and U.S. Army soldiers, fighting alongside them in the streets, as well as protecting them from rooftops and stealth positions. Through four combat deployments, he was awarded seven medals for bravery, including two Silver Stars. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle's masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.

Show 974 part 2 of 2  The End of Sex: How Hookup Culture is Leaving a Generation Unhappy, Sexually Unfulfilled, and Confused About Intimacy by Donna Freitas

Michael Medved talks to the author.

Overview of book-

Hookup culture dominates the lives of college students today. Most students spend hours agonizing over their hopes for Friday night and, later, dissecting the evenings’ successes or failures, often wishing that the social contract of the hookup would allow them to ask for more out of sexual intimacy. The pressure to participate comes from all directions—from peers, the media, and even parents. But how do these expectations affect students themselves? And why aren’t parents and universities helping students make better-informed decisions about sex and relationships?

In The End of Sex, Donna Freitas draws on her own extensive research to reveal what young men and women really want when it comes to sex and romance. Surveying thousands of college students and conducting extensive one-on-one interviews at religious, secular public, and secular private schools, Freitas discovered that many students—men and women alike—are deeply unhappy with hookup culture. Meaningless hookups have led them to associate sexuality with ambivalence, boredom, isolation, and loneliness, yet they tend to accept hooking up as an unavoidable part of college life. Freitas argues that, until students realize that there are many avenues that lead to sex and long-term relationships, the vast majority will continue to miss out on the romance, intimacy, and satisfying sex they deserve.

 

An honest, sympathetic portrait of the challenges of young adulthood, The End of Sex will strike a chord with undergraduates, parents, and faculty members who feel that students deserve more than an endless cycle of boozy one night stands. Freitas offers a refreshing take on this charged topic—and a solution that depends not on premarital abstinence or unfettered sexuality, but rather a healthy path between the two.

In the words of the Washington Post Book World, “With Wings Like Eagles is a skillful, absorbing, often moving contribution to the popular understanding of one of the few episodes in history … to deserve the description ‘heroic.’”

ACU includes part 1 and 2 of this history program. For part 3 subscribe to the Michael Medved podcast or purchase from the Michael Medved History Store.

 The Founding Fathers risked their lives, fortunes and sacred honors to stop consumption taxes that amounted to barely two cents on the dollar, but less than 200 years later the nation they founded embraced top income tax rates above 90 percent. For most of our history, courts and legislators viewed federal income taxes as unconstitutional and an abomination but by 1913 a broad, new national consensus, including most Republicans, led to an amendment to the Constitution giving Washingtonnearly unlimited taxing power. At first, the top tax rate (7%!) applied only to incomes above $10,000,000 (in today's dollars) but within a hundred years federal, state and local taxes combined to take more than 40 cents out of every dollar, earned by every American in the private sector. The march to  higher taxes and bigger government has been interrupted on occasion by heroic tax reformers, including Calvin Coolidge, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush---and, importantly, John F. Kennedy. Unfortunately, it's a Republican president (no, not one named Bush) who could go down as the biggest, most disastrous tax-raiser in history.

 This new history program will probe the mysteries of tax history: what were the Sons of Liberty really protesting in the Revolutionary Era and with the Boston Tea Party? How did Pennsylvania tax resisters nearly bring on civil war in the early years of the Republic? Why did America's disastrous experience in the War of 1812 first produce the disastrous notion of a federal income tax? Did Lincoln's backing of a war time income tax indicate his support of bigger government, more taxing power? Why did the Supreme Court and our greatest legal thinkers look askance at new tax schemes on behalf of what patriot pamphleteer Thomas Paine called government's "greedy hand"? And what are the prospects for radical reform schemes (Fair Tax, Flat Tax) most frequently discussed today? 

 THE (SHOCKING) TRUTH ABOUT TAXES will answers these and other questions, offering Americans the crucial background they need to understand one of the most important issues for the future of our economy - and our liberty.

But in a provocative, unconventional and all-new history program, Michael Medved argues that we can learn even more from alarming, astonishing and mostly untold stories of presidential failure.

 After all, few leaders can ever hope to replicate the epic achievements of a Washington or a Lincoln. But every future president can—and must—seek to avoid the appalling ineptitude of John Tyler, Franklin Pierce, Andrew Johnson and their feckless fellow travelers on the road to the White House Hall of Shame.

 As a starting point, Medved uses more than a dozen polls of prominent historians, journalists and politicians, taken between 1948 and 2011, that ranked all our chief executives from best to worst. The same three names—Lincoln, Washington and Franklin D. Roosevelt—emerged at the top of every list, but the bottom rungs of the ladder generated more controversy. Medved argues that the two presidents most often ranked as worst-of-the-worst—Warren G. Harding and U.S. Grant—don't deserve their disrespectful treatment, and he explains why both of them have begun a recent climb in historical esteem.

 Meanwhile, a few other names almost always listed in the failure category—James Buchanan, Franklin Pierce, John Tyler, Andrew Johnson—richly earned their opprobrium and make the cut among Medved's "White House Worst." In fact, each of these men contributed to bringing on the greatest disaster in American history—the Civil War—or played a role in the tragic failures of the Reconstruction era.

 - Which of these men dealt with an invalid wife who locked herself upstairs in the White House and spent her time writing letters to a dead son—while also convening the very first executive mansion séance?

 - Which president won a gorgeous new wife (thirty years his junior) when he helped rescue her from a tragic explosion that killed her father—as well as the Secretary of State?

 - And which president tried to reform his alcoholic, self-destructive son by installing him as his chief White House aide, only to watch helplessly as the talented young man plunged ever deeper into his addiction and wrecked his father's administration in the process?

 The misunderstood Herbert Hoover also shows up on the list of losers, but not for the reasons he became wildly unpopular among his contemporaries. No, he doesn't deserve blame for the Great Depression—the stock market crashed a mere six months after he took office. But he does deserve history's harshest judgment for responding to economic hardship in exactly the wrong way: by hiking taxes (painfully and needlessly), raising tariffs, and growing government. By the same token, what made Jimmy Carter's regime such a spectacular disaster wasn't the economic suffering the people endured under his leadership: he was still serving his single term as Georgia governor at the time of the Arab Oil Embargo and the beginning of crippling inflation. It was Carter's handling of crisis and reverses that made him so uniquely incompetent, and associated his leadership forever with the term "malaise."

 

Finally, Medved explains why other candidates often nominated for lists of the White House Worst don't really belong there—exonerating Harding, Grant and Nixon as well as George W. Bush and (so far, at least) Barack Obama. Meanwhile, two other presidents much-admired by historians—Woodrow Wilson and Lyndon Johnson—deserve special consideration. Their first term stature and undeniable achievements disqualify them from lists of all-time worsts, but megalomaniacal personalities, devastating damage to the Republic by their stubbornly-pursued policies, and heartbreaking rejection by the populace create a separate category of Epic Disasters.

 Entertaining, surprising, informative and insightful, Medved's new history program includes pointed advice for future presidents (and our current incumbent) on how to avoid joining the terribly tarnished names included in the rich story-telling in this presentation of The Worst Presidents Ever.

Show 964 Book- Hugh Hewitts- Talking With Pagans The Great God Debates from the Hugh Hewitt Show

Length: 36s

Show  964 Book- Talking With Pagans   The Great God Debates from the Hugh Hewitt Show

Michael Medved talks to Hugh Hewitt author of Talking with Pagans: The Great God Debates.

Book Description- The debate over God's existence has been underway since the book of Job was written down. In recent years, the "new atheists" arrived on the media scene to add a measure of sarcasm and evolutionary biology to the mix of arguments against God. Defenders of God rose to the task and a series of debates between the camps ensued.

Some of the best, most vigorous, and most pointed of those occurred on Hugh Hewitt's nationally syndicated radio show and were heard by millions. Hugh himself debated Richard Dawkins on the radio, and Sam Harris on television. Hewitt's frequent and welcome guest Christopher Hitchens went at it with Dr. Mark D. Roberts and Dr. David Allen White in two epic showdowns totaling five hours which Hugh moderated. Other prominent atheists or agnostics mixed it up with other prominent Christian apologists.

Now all of those key debates are gathered in one place, along with an introduction from Hugh and a study guide useful to understanding the arguments deployed and the stakes involved.

The book sparkles with wit and soars to very great heights of theology while also hitting the very serious divides between believers and those who are not yet in that camp.

Watch the video as they discuss Eugenics, Margaret Sanger, Hitler, Darwin, etc...

In War Against the Weak, award-winning investigative journalist Edwin Black connects the crimes of the Nazis to a pseudoscientific American movement of the early 20th century called eugenics. Based on selective breeding of human beings, eugenics began in laboratories on Long Island but ended in the concentration camps of Nazi Germany. Cruel and racist laws were enacted in 27 U.S. states, and the supporters of eugenics included progressive thinkers like Woodrow Wilson, Margaret Sanger, and Oliver Wendell Holmes. Ultimately, over 60,000 "unfit" Americans were coercively sterilized, a third of them after Nuremberg declared such practices crimes against humanity. This is a timely and shocking chronicle of bad science at its worst — with many important lessons for the impending genetic age.

Show 960 Silenced: How Apostasy and Blasphemy Codes are Choking Freedom Worldwide

Show 960  Silenced: How Apostasy and Blasphemy Codes are Choking Freedom Worldwide

To watch the video of this audio presentation visit: http://www.heritage.org/events/2011/11/silenced   

For The Heritage Foundation’s Archives of great shows visit: http://www.heritage.org/events/pastevents

The 1989 fatwa against Salman Rushdie awakened many  westerners to the danger of being charged with blasphemy in the Muslim world. Charges of "blasphemy," "apostasy," and "insulting Islam" are increasingly used by authoritarian governments and extremist forces within key Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states to acquire and consolidate power. These codes have proved effective in intimidating not only converts and heterodox groups, but also political and religious reformers.

In their newly released book, Silenced (Oxford University Press, 2011), Paul Marshall and Nina Shea provide the first survey of such accusations in the contemporary Muslim world, in international organizations, and in the West. These charges traditionally carry a punishment of death but are contested within Islam today, as described by the late Indonesian president Abdurrahman Wahid in the foreword to Silenced. Nevertheless, as Marshall and Shea describe, hundreds of victims, including political dissidents, religious reformers, journalists, writers, artists, movie makers, and religious minorities in many countries. They also document the political effects in Muslim societies of blasphemy and apostasy laws, as well as non-governmental fatwas and vigilante violence. And they examine in the West the move toward importing new blasphemy standards through bans on purported hate speech and Islamophobia, aggressively promoted by the OIC, and the increasing threat of violence to stifle commentary on Islam even in the absence of law.

Show 959 Part 3 of 3. Making of America: One Day Seminar from the National Center for Constitutional Studies

2013-03-20

Show 959 Part 3 of 3.  Making of America: One Day Seminar from the National Center for Constitutional Studies. This is highly recommended by ACU.  

We have also included the accompanying Seminar Guide as a free download and strongly encourage the use of this guide as you listen to this audio presentation.  Download Study Guide at: http://nccs.net/seminars/making_of_america_seminar_guide.pdf

From NCCS-

What do we do at a Making of America seminar?

Here is the general outline and timing of our one-day Making of America seminar:

8:30am-12:00 noon - "Developing America 's Great Success Formula"

This is the exciting exploration which Jefferson, Adams, Franklin , Washington and others made in order to rediscover the key to the creation of the first free nation in modern times. We trace their adventure from 1400 B.C. to A.D. 1787

 

12:45pm-4:30pm - "The Perfect Plan of Liberty "

A refreshing look at the solid political and economic principles from the preamble through the amendments to the Constitution. You learn perhaps for the first time, how nearly every problem in America today can be solved by restoring these successful concepts.

We recognize that many people would like to attend a live NCCS seminar, but are unable to because we simply cannot go everywhere. We recently recorded a seminar and have made it available for anyone to view as they have time. We have also included our Seminar Guide as a free download and strongly encourage the use of this guide as you listen to the Seminar.

 Download Study Guide at: http://nccs.net/seminars/making_of_america_seminar_guide.pdf

Now you can bring our "Making of America: One Day Seminar" into your own home. This package includes our seminar guide that you would receive at one of our live seminars, plus a DVD recording of an all day seminar for just $15. Visit    http://www.nccsstore.com/The-Making-of-America-Seminar-Guide-DVD/productinfo/MOASEM/

 

Detailed Description- "The Making of America is about the world's greatest political success formula. In a little over a century, this formula allowed a small segment of the human family -- less than 6 percent -- to become the richest nation on earth. It allowed them to originate more than half of the world's total production and enjoy the highest standard of living in the history of the world."

"But Americans have more to share than their wealth. They have the world's greatest political success formula to share. In this respect they have been at fault. They have been too self-conscious about their system and its accomplishments. At times they have been almost apologetic that they have had such a remarkable system when the rest of the world did not. The world needs to know this formula." - From the introduction to the Making of America

In this seminar you will learn the Founding Fathers' story. Much of it is told in the words of the Founders themselves. You will feel the power of their minds sweeping away centuries of bad government and bad laws to formulate a whole new society based on human freedom.

Length: 1s

Show 956 No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden

byMark Owen, Kevin Maurer

 

Overview of book- For the first time anywhere, the first-person account of the planning and execution of the Bin Laden raid from a Navy Seal who confronted the terrorist mastermind and witnessed his final moment

From the streets of Iraq to the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean, and from the mountaintops of Afghanistan to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden’s compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group — commonly known as SEAL Team Six — has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines.

No Easy Day puts readers alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the twenty-four-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives. The blow-by-blow narrative of the assault, beginning with the helicopter crash that could have ended Owen’s life straight through to the radio call confirming Bin Laden’s death, is an essential piece of modern history.

 

In No Easy Day, Owen also takes readers onto the field of battle in America’s ongoing War on Terror and details the selection and training process for one of the most elite units in the military. Owen’s story draws on his youth in Alaska and describes the SEALs’ quest to challenge themselves at the highest levels of physical and mental endurance. With boots-on-the-ground detail, Owen describes numerous previously unreported missions that illustrate the life and work of a SEAL and the evolution of the team after the events of September 11. In telling the true story of the SEALs whose talents, skills, experiences, and exceptional sacrifices led to one of the greatest victories in the War on Terror, Mark Owen honors the men who risk everything for our country, and he leaves readers with a deep understanding of the warriors who keep America safe.

2013-03-11
Length: 35s

Show 955  Invisible Armies  An Epic History of Guerrilla Warfare from Ancient Times to the Present

Author: Max Boot, Jeane J. Kirkpatrick Senior Fellow for National Security Studies

 Overview of book-

As fitting for the twenty-first century as von Clausewitz's On War was in its own time, Invisible Armies is a complete global history of guerrilla uprisings through the ages.

 Beginning with the first insurgencies in the ancient world--when Alexander the Great discovered that fleet nomads were harder to defeat than massive conventional armies--Max Boot, best-selling author and military advisor in Iraq and Afghanistan, masterfully guides us from the Jewish rebellion against the Roman Empire up through the horrors of the French-Indochina War and the shadowy, post-9/11 battlefields of today. Relying on a diverse cast of unforgettable characters--not only Mao and Che but also the legendary Italian nationalist Giuseppe Garibaldi, the archaeologist-turned–military commander T. E. Lawrence, and the "Quiet American" Edward Lansdale, among others--Boot explodes everything we thought we knew about unconventional combat. The result is both an enthralling read and our most important work on nontraditional warfare.

Relying on a diverse cast of unforgettable characters--not only Mao and Che but also the legendary Italian nationalist Giuseppe Garibaldi, the archaeologist-turned–military commander T. E. Lawrence, and the "Quiet American" Edward Lansdale, among others--Boot explodes everything we thought we knew about unconventional combat. The result is both an enthralling read and our most important work on nontraditional warfare.

Show 953 Book- Deng Xiaoping and the Transformation of China

Ezra Vogel on Deng Xiaoping and the Transformation of China

Ezra Vogel has published hugely influential books on both China and Japan. In his latest, he examines the key role played by Deng Xiaoping in moving China away from a thoroughly planned economy, a transition that required becoming much more open and engaged with the rest of the world. In his Nov. 9, 2011 presentation at the USC U.S.-China Institute, Vogel focused on how Deng's foreign policies were very much driven by his assessment of the desperate need China had for better trained personnel, foreign capital, and foreign technology.

Distinguished Harvard sociologist Ezra Vogel offers his assessment of Deng's leadership. J. Stapleton Roy, former ambassador to China, wrote of Vogel's book,

"Deng Xiaoping's skill, vision, and courage in overcoming seemingly insuperable obstacles and guiding China onto the path of sustained economic development rank him with the great leaders of history. And yet, too little is known about the life and career of this extraordinary man. In this superbly researched and highly readable biography, Vogel has definitively filled this void. This fascinating book provides a host of insights into the factors that enabled Deng to triumph over repeated setbacks and lay the basis for China to regain the wealth and power that has eluded it for two centuries."

Ezra Vogel is professor emeritus of sociology at Harvard University where he taught 1964-2000. He is one of the most influential scholars of East Asia, contributing vital books on China and Japan. His China-focused titles include Canton Under Communism (1969) and One Step Ahead in China: Guangdong Under Reform (1989). His books on Japan include Japan's New Middle Class (1963), Japan as Number One: Lessons for America (1979), and Is Japan Still Number One? (2000). In addition to these seminal works, Vogel has edited a number of others, including Living with China : U.S./China Relations in the Twenty-First Century (1997). Professor Vogel is a member of the USC US-China Institute Board of Scholars.

The event was co-sponsored by The Pacific Council on International Policy.

Synopsis of book-   Perhaps no one in the twentieth century had a greater long-term impact on world history than Deng Xiaoping. And no scholar of contemporary East Asian history and culture is better qualified than Ezra Vogel to disentangle the many contradictions embodied in the life and legacy of China’s boldest strategist.

Once described by Mao Zedong as a “needle inside a ball of cotton,” Deng was the pragmatic yet disciplined driving force behind China’s radical transformation in the late twentieth century. He confronted the damage wrought by the Cultural Revolution, dissolved Mao’s cult of personality, and loosened the economic and social policies that had stunted China’s growth. Obsessed with modernization and technology, Deng opened trade relations with the West, which lifted hundreds of millions of his countrymen out of poverty. Yet at the same time he answered to his authoritarian roots, most notably when he ordered the crackdown in June 1989 at Tiananmen Square.

Deng’s youthful commitment to the Communist Party was cemented in Paris in the early 1920s, among a group of Chinese student-workers that also included Zhou Enlai. Deng returned home in 1927 to join the Chinese Revolution on the ground floor. In the fifty years of his tumultuous rise to power, he endured accusations, purges, and even exile before becoming China’s preeminent leader from 1978 to 1989 and again in 1992. When he reached the top, Deng saw an opportunity to creatively destroy much of the economic system he had helped build for five decades as a loyal follower of Mao—and he did not hesitate.

Published on Oct 23, 2012

This 2010 documentary DVD deals with the issue and practice of abortion in the United States. The program is presented and narrated by Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The filmmakers and participants of this documentary allege that the practice of abortion is not truly about women's rights, women's health nor matters of choice and liberty as the subject too often is billed as being based on. The film's premise is obviously slanted to being against the practice of abortion.

 This film is an indictment of the practice of abortion as being one which is solely based on large profit seeking. Furthermore, the presentation shows abortion as an act of medical violence against women and a strong component of racism and ethnic bias taints the practice in America currently.

 The film has legal experts, social critics, religious leaders and commentators, former abortion clinic medical staff, civil rights leaders, historians and individual men and women examine the practice of abortion.

Show 947 Glenn Beck talks to author of  Marked for Death: Islam’s War Against the West and Me

 

Without a doubt one of the most brave individuals in the world is Dutch Parliament member Geert Wilders who wrote the book Marked for Death: Islam’s War Against the West and Me. Fanatics, terrorists, and appeasers have tried everything to silence Geert Wilders, Europe’s most controversial Member of Parliament—from putting him on trial to putting a price on his head. But Wilders refuses to be silenced—and one result is the book you have in your hands. For years, from his native Netherlands, Wilders has sounded the alarm about the relentless spread of Islam in the West. And he has paid a steep personal price, enduring countless death threats and being forced into a permanent state of hiding. Now, for the first time, Wilders offers a full account of his long battle against the zealots who have already slaughtered his countryman Theo van Gogh—whose killer also threatened to murder Wilders himself.

Show 946 Push Has Come to Shove: Getting Our Kids the Education They Deserve--Even If It Means Picking a Fight by Dr. Steve Perry

2013-02-18
Length: 36s

Show 946 Push Has Come to Shove: Getting Our Kids the Education They Deserve--Even If It Means Picking a Fight  by Dr. Steve Perry 

Michael Medved talks to Steve Perry on education reform and his book.

Book Description-    “Have you been to a school lately?  Have you sat through the six hours and forty-five minutes of excruciating tedium we send our kids to every day?  When we ask our kids, “What’d you do in school today?” and they mumble, “Nothin’,” they’re telling the truth.”

 Steve Perry is like no other educator you’ve ever met.  He “gets it.”  He understands why some parents are downright panicked about what’s going on in their kids’ classrooms, and how other parents, whose kids supposedly attend the “good” schools, still fear that their children are falling behind.  As Principal of one of the best performing schools in America -- one that sends 100% of its mostly minority students to four-year colleges -- Perry delights in poking the system.  Present him with a “truth” about how education is supposed to work and – count on it – he’ll show it to be false.

Dictatorial teacher’s unions despise Steve Perry.  So do lazy teachers.  So do entrenched, unimaginative school boards.  So do reactionary “curriculum guardians” who – as a lure to get kids reading – cling to the same old stodgy texts.

 “That’s okay,” say Perry.  That means he’s making a difference.  In this book, his priority is to help kids who don’t have the advantage of going to his school, Capital Prep.  He wants to save your kid, and the kid next door, and the kid down the street from getting a typical third-rate American education.

If you’re a parent who has worried recently about how depressed your child seems when he dresses for school in the morning…or how little of what happens during the school day seems to sink into her brain… or how much of your child’s homework is busywork, you need this book. 

 If you’re a teacher who is putting your heart and soul into the job but are surrounded by colleagues who are “phoning it in,” you need this book.

 If you’re a committed, forward-thinking principal who wants to get rid of the faculty bad apples, but are continually stymied by Mafia-style teachers-unions, you need this book.

 *If you’re a citizen who worries about the $1 trillion-plus GDP loss that America suffers every year because our system of education doesn’t measure up, you need this book.

 In this solution-oriented manifesto, Steve Perry covers the full range of issues holding back today’s students.  He shows parents how to find great teachers (and get rid of the bad ones)…how to make readers out of kids who hate to read…how to make the school curriculum thrilling rather than sleep-inducing…how to conduct an all-important education “home audit”… how to “e-organize” if school boards and administrators aren’t getting the message…how to build a “school of the future,” and much more.

 The era of third-rate education is over.  Steve Perry isn’t going to let the fools and scoundrels get away with it any longer.  Push has come to shove!

Glenn Beck talks about American Youth, Narcissism & Entitlement w/ Two Authors

January 16, 2013

To watch the video visit    http://glennbecksbooklist.com/

Glenn Beck today talked with two different authors about the entitlement and narcissism in our youth today. Guests Keith Campbell author oThe Narcissism Epidemic: Living in the Age of Entitlement and Kay Wyma author of Cleaning House: A Mom’s Twelve-Month Experiment to Rid Her Home of Youth Entitlement. This is a great segment on The Blaze TV, watch it below!

The Narcissism Epidemic: Living in the Age of Entitlement

Narcissism—an inflated view of the self—is everywhere. Public figures say it’s what makes them stray from their wives. Parents teach it by dressing children in T-shirts that say “Princess.” Teenagers and young adults hone it on Facebook, and celebrity newsmakers have elevated it to an art form. And it’s what’s making people depressed, lonely, and buried under piles of debt.

Jean Twenge’s influential first book, Generation Me, spurred a national debate with its depiction of the challenges twenty- and thirty-somethings face in today’s world—and the fallout these issues create for educators and employers. Now, Dr. Twenge turns her focus to the pernicious spread of narcissism in today’s culture, which has repercussions for every age group and class. Dr. Twenge joins forces with W. Keith Campbell, Ph.D., a nationally recognized expert on narcissism, to explore this new plague in The Narcissism Epidemic, their eye-opening exposition of the alarming rise of narcissism and its catastrophic effects at every level of society. Even the world economy has been damaged by risky, unrealistic overconfidence. Drawing on their own extensive research as well as decades of other experts’ studies, Drs. Twenge and Campbell show us how to identify narcissism, minimize the forces that sustain and transmit it, and treat it or manage it where we find it. Filled with arresting, alarming, and even amusing stories of vanity gone off the tracks (would you like to hire your own personal paparazzi?), The Narcissism Epidemic is at once a riveting window into the consequences of narcissism, a prescription to combat the widespread problems it causes, and a probing analysis of the culture at large.

Cleaning House: A Mom’s Twelve-Month Experiment to Rid Her Home of Youth Entitlement

Is Your Home Out of Order?

Do your kids expect clean folded clothes to magically appear in their drawers? Do they roll their eyes when you suggest they clean the bathroom? By racing in to make their lives easy, have you unintentionally reinforced your children’s belief that the world revolves around them?

Dismayed at the attitude of entitlement that had crept into her home, Kay Wyma got some attitude of her own. Cleaning House is her account of a year-long campaign to introduce her five kids to basic life skills and the ways meaningful work can increase earned self-confidence and concern for others.

With irresistible humor and refreshing insights, Kay candidly details the ups and downs of equipping her kids for such tasks as making beds, refinishing a deck chair, and working together. The changes that take place in her household will inspire you to launch your own campaign to dislodge your kids from the center of their universe.

Show 943 Warning- Explicit Language. Audiobook excerpt. Outlaw Platoon.

Outlaw Platoon: Heroes, Renegades, Infidels, and the Brotherhood of War in Afghanistan

by Sean Parnell, John Bruning.  Warning- Explicit Language.

We have excerpted two chapters from the book. Village of the Damned and Last Stand.

Buy the book from Amazon or Audible. Recommended by ACU.

Overview of the Book-   At twenty-four years of age, U.S. Army Ranger Sean Parnell was named commander of a forty-man elite infantry platoon, the 10th Mountain Division—a unit that came to be known as the Outlaws. Tasked with rooting out Pakistan-based insurgents from a valley in the Hindu Kush, Parnell assumed they would be facing a ragtag bunch of civilians until, in May 2006, a routine patrol turned into a brutal ambush. Through sixteen months of combat, the platoon became Parnell's family. The cost of battle was high for these men. Not all of them made it home, but for those who did, it was the love and faith they found in one another that ultimately kept them alive.

Book Description

Brilliant and engagingly written, Why Nations Fail answers the question that has stumped the experts for centuries: Why are some nations rich and others poor, divided by wealth and poverty, health and sickness, food and famine?

 Is it culture, the weather, geography? Perhaps ignorance of what the right policies are?

 Simply, no. None of these factors is either definitive or destiny. Otherwise, how to explain why Botswana has become one of the fastest growing countries in the world, while other African nations, such as Zimbabwe, the Congo, and Sierra Leone, are mired in poverty and violence?

 Daron Acemoglu and James Robinson conclusively show that it is man-made political and economic institutions that underlie economic success (or lack of it). Korea, to take just one of their fascinating examples, is a remarkably homogeneous nation, yet the people of North Korea are among the poorest on earth while their brothers and sisters in South Korea are among the richest. The south forged a society that created incentives, rewarded innovation, and allowed everyone to participate in economic opportunities. The economic success thus spurred was sustained because the government became accountable and responsive to citizens and the great mass of people. Sadly, the people of the north have endured decades of famine, political repression, and very different economic institutions—with no end in sight. The differences between the Koreas is due to the politics that created these completely different institutional trajectories.

 Based on fifteen years of original research Acemoglu and Robinson marshall extraordinary historical evidence from the Roman Empire, the Mayan city-states, medieval Venice, the Soviet Union, Latin America, England, Europe, the United States, and Africa to build a new theory of political economy with great relevance for the big questions of today, including:

 

   - China has built an authoritarian growth machine. Will it continue to grow at such high speed and overwhelm the West?

   - Are America’s best days behind it? Are we moving from a virtuous circle in which efforts by elites to aggrandize power are resisted to a vicious one that enriches and empowers a small minority?

   - What is the most effective way to help move billions of people from the rut of poverty to prosperity? More

philanthropy from the wealthy nations of the West? Or learning the hard-won lessons of Acemoglu and Robinson’s breakthrough ideas on the interplay between inclusive political and economic institutions?

 

Why Nations Fail will change the way you look at—and understand—the world.

Overview of book- A groundbreaking narrative—a historical political thriller—that explores the role of the Sons of Liberty in the American Revolution.
More than two hundred years ago, a group of British colonists in America decided that the conditions under which they were governed had become intolerable. Angry and frustrated that King George III and the British Parliament had ignored their lawful complaints and petitions, they decided to take action.
Knowing that their deeds—often directed at individuals and property—were illegal, and punishable by imprisonment and even death, these agitators plotted and conducted their missions in secret to protect their identities as well as the identities of those who supported them. Calling themselves the Sons of Liberty, they gathered together in a radical society committed to imposing forcible change. Those determined men—including second cousins Samuel and John Adams, Paul Revere, Patrick Henry, and John Hancock—saw themselves as patriots. Yet to the Crown, and to many of the Sons' fellow colonists, the revolutionaries were terrorists who deserved death for their treason.
In this gripping narrative, Les Standiford reveals how this group of intelligent, committed men, motivated by economics and political belief, began a careful campaign of interlocking events that would channel feelings of vague injustice into an armed rebellion of common cause, which would defeat an empire and give birth to a radical political experiment—a new nation known as the United States.

Segment 1- Hadyn Parry: Re-engineering mosquitos to fight disease. TED talks.

In a single year, there are 200-300 million cases of malaria and 50-100 million cases of dengue fever worldwide. So: Why haven’t we found a way to effectively kill mosquitos yet? Hadyn Parry presents a fascinating solution: genetically engineering male mosquitos to make them sterile, and releasing the insects into the wild, to cut down on disease-carrying species.

Biotech entrepreneur Hadyn Parry leads a science start-up that develops GM insects to fight dengue fever

Why you should listen to him: "We have reached a moment of truth," says biotech entrepreneur Hadyn Parry. He believes it's a pivotal time for the science industry and it's the moment for the public to wake up and rethink its position on GM technologies and trials. Parry, who is the CEO of Oxitec, a biotech company devoted to innovative insect control, believes the debate over GM crops and animals has become too political, and people are not stopping to evaluate the technologies' true promises and efficacies. In his eyes, GM can be used responsibly for important goals, like the control of extremely harmful diseases like dengue fever.

 

 Segment 2: Bart Knols: Cheese, dogs and a pill to kill mosquitos and end malaria

Can limburger cheese help tame the mosquito population? Yes, says Bart Knols. His research has found that African malaria mosquitos are attracted to this cheese’s smell, possibly because it is similar to that of human feet, giving us an easy way to bait them. In this talk from TEDxMaastricht, Knols also shares two other ideas for reducing the number of cases of malaria, which kills a child every 30 seconds: using dogs to sniff out mosquito larvae and creating a pill to make us deadly to the blood-thirsty bugs.

 

Why you should listen to him: Bart Knols is a malariologist with eleven years of experience managing large-scale research programs in East and Southern Africa. He’s worked at the United Nations (IAEA), served as a consultant for the World Health Organization, and acted as a Board Member of the UBS Bank Optimus Foundation in Switzerland. He has published over 140 peer-reviewed research articles and received the Ig Nobel Prize and an IAEA Special Service Award in 2006 and became a laureate of the Eijkman medal in 2007. He is currently the Managing Director at In2Care BV, Science Director & Managing Partner at Soper Strategies, and serves as Chair of the Advisory Board of the Dutch Malaria Foundation.

 

Segment 3- Nathan Myhrvold: Could this laser zap malaria?

Nathan Myhrvold and team's latest inventions -- as brilliant as they are bold -- remind us that the world needs wild creativity to tackle big problems like malaria. And just as that idea sinks in, he rolls out a live demo of a new, mosquito-zapping gizmo you have to see to believe.

http://www.ted.com/talks/nathan_myhrvold_could_this_laser_zap_malaria.html

Nathan Myhrvold is a professional jack-of-all-trades. After leaving Microsoft in 1999, he's been a world barbecue champion, a wildlife photographer, a chef, a contributor to SETI, and a volcano explorer.

Why you should listen to him: .Since leaving his post as Microsoft's Chief Technology Officer in 1999 (with fortune in tow), Nathan Myhrvold has been a professional exemplar of the spirit of the "Renaissance Man," proudly following his interests wherever they've led. His dispersed passions have triggered an impressive list of accomplishments, including world barbecue championships, major archeological finds (several Tyrannosaurus rex skeletons), prize-winning wildlife photography, building a section of Babbage's Difference Engine #2, s, and a new and consuming interest in the sous-vide cooking technique.

 

Malcolm Gladwell's 2008 New Yorker profile of him revealed an impish but truly inspired character whose latest company, Intellectual Ventures -- which brainstorms and patents a wide array of inventions --  has been accused in some quarters of acting like a 'patent troll' but is described by Myhrvold as "a disruptive organization providing  an efficient way for patent holders to get paid for the inventions they own, and... for technology companies to gain easy access to the invention rights they need." After funding big-vision projects such as the Allen Telescope Array, exploring active volcanoes and investigating penguin digestion, Myhrvold insists that his hobbies aren't as discursive as they seem. They do have a common denominator, after all: him.

"He is gregarious, enthusiastic, and nerdy on an epic scale."

Malcolm Gladwell

 

Segment 4- Bill Gates hopes to solve some of the world's biggest problems using a new kind of philanthropy. In a passionate and, yes, funny 18 minutes, he asks us to consider two big questions and how we might answer them.

Why you should listen to him: .Bill Gates is founder and former CEO of Microsoft. A geek icon, tech visionary and business trailblazer, Gates' leadership -- fueled by his long-held dream that millions might realize their potential through great software -- made Microsoft a personal computing powerhouse and a trendsetter in the Internet dawn. Whether you're a suit, chef, quant, artist, media maven, nurse or gamer, you've probably used a Microsoft product today.

 

In summer of 2008, Gates left his day-to-day role with Microsoft to focus on philanthropy. Holding that all lives have equal value (no matter where they're being lived), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has now donated staggering sums to HIV/AIDS programs, libraries, agriculture research and disaster relief -- and offered vital guidance and creative funding to programs in global health and education. Gates believes his tech-centric strategy for giving will prove the killer app of planet Earth's next big upgrade.

In his second annual letter, released in late January 2010, Gates takes stock of his first full year with the Gates Foundation. Read Bill Gates' annual letter for 2010. And follow his ongoing thinking on his personal website, The Gates Notes.

"When Gates looks at the world, a world in which millions of preventable deaths occur each year, he sees an irrational, inefficient, broken system, an application that needs to be debugged. It shocks him -- his word -- that people don't see this, the same way it shocked him that nobody but he and [Paul] Allen saw the microchip for what it was."

Time

 

A passionate techie and a shrewd businessman, Bill Gates changed the world once, while leading Microsoft to dizzying success. Now he's set to do it again with his own style of philanthropy and passion for innovation.

Show 934 Part 2 of 3 The War for the Union

2013-01-21
Length: 36s

Show 934 Part 2 of 3 The War for the Union The War for the Union. This is a selection from Michael Medved’s History programs.

1) WHY THEY FOUGHT: Was the bloodiest war in US history (with 623,000 killed -- the equivalent of 6,000.000 deaths in today's America) about slavery-- or about states rights? Was the war avoidable, and the product of ten years of horrible leadership in Washington (with some of the worst presidents in US history), or was it an "irrepressible conflict" (as William Henry Seward famously called it) that even the most skillful politicians couldn't escape? We'll trace the crucial turning points, historical forces and political personalities (the good, the bad and the ugly) that placed America on the path to cataclysmic conflict.

 2) THE TIDE OF WAR: Focusing on the crucial decision points where the South could have actually won the war --- The Battle of Antietam, the Battle of Gettysburg, the Draft Riots in New York, the Presidential election of 1864 and the desperate (but doomed) proposal to use a million black slaves to fight for the Confederacy in exchange for their freedom. If the South had prevailed, what would the two countries (the Confederate States of America and the United States of America) have looked like twenty years after the war -- and a hundred years after the war?

 3) WHY THE NORTH WON: Was it sheer population (the North outnumbered the white population of the South by more than three to one), economic power, or the brilliant, incomparable political leadership of Abraham Lincoln? Or did the Confederacy go down because of its internal flaws, and a badly mistaken strategy by Robert E. Lee? What could the South have done to insure European recognition, and why did they fail to follow the inspiration of Virginian George Washington when it came to their own failed (and, ultimately, disastrous) War for Independence? Did moral arguments ultimately doom the Confederate cause?

 These explosive questions will be covered in intimate and vivid detail, answering a demand from History Program subscribers to cover America's most epic conflict -- just in time for the sesquicentennial commemorations in 2012-13 celebrating its most decisive battles.

 CAN YOU SEPARATE THE LIES FROM THE TRUTH ON WORLD WAR II?

The Second World War was the deadliest, most significant conflict in human history and yet many of the most common assumptions about that struggle are horribly wrong. For instance, even well-informed citizens believe ~ * World War II was just an extension of World War I * The Versailles Treaty that ended World War I made the next war inevitable * Nazis hated gays just as they hated Jews, and killed them with similar ruthlessness * French troops showed appalling cowardice during World War II, and quickly surrendered * Stalin's Russia fought heroically and brilliantly to triumph in "The Great Patriotic War" * The U.S. ultimately prevailed due to superior generalship and political leadership * FDR understood the dangers of isolationism and courageously dragged a reluctant America to war * We entered the war, ultimately, on humanitarian grounds: to rescue persecuted Jews * Dropping A-Bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was unnecessary and genocidal since Japan was already set to surrender None of these things is true ~ and some of them are deliberate, dangerous distortions. In this hard-hitting, controversial, informative and entertaining presentation, Michael Medved clears away the falsehoods and fabrications to lay bare some of the little known realities about our nation's biggest war. With lessons from the struggle constantly cited in contemporary debates, invoked to advance agendas on contemporary foreign policy and military disputes, it is essential to know the unvarnished facts, and to confront ~ WORLD WAR II: MYTHS, MISTAKES AND LIES

Show 929 Book- Out of the Shadows Confronting Americas Mental Illness Crisis

2013-01-09
Length: 36s

Show 929 Book- Out of the Shadows Confronting Americas Mental Illness Crisis by E. FULLER TORREY, M.D

Overview - Out of the Shadows Synopsis of book- "Powerful. . . . The crisis [Torrey] delineates should stir any halfway sensitive human being to anger."—The New York Times Book Review

"An important book . . . timely and very well written."—The New England Journal of Medicine.
"Controversial ideas, forcefully presented."—Kirkus Reviews
"Moving and vivid. . . . Torrey's powerful prescription for change challenges conventional wisdom and political correctness. His searing case examples will haunt the reader."—Laurie Flynn Executive Director National Alliance for the Mentally Ill

Virginia Galloway

This is a concise, informative exploration of the mental illness crisis in America. The author provides the startling facts of our situation as an impetus for change, then catalogues the necessary steps to change. The aim of the book is simply to answer ""Why?"" Why do our mental illness problems exist? Why does the established system not work? Why has the crisis gotten worse, instead of better? What can we do? The book is needed because the current situation is depraved, inhumane, and not functional. The book answers these questions and offers a practical outline for change. The book is a valuable resource for mental health workers and the families of the mentally ill. The book is informative and pedagogic for anyone endowed with the power to invoke change. The author is learned about the state of America's mental illness crisis and has the clarity of vision and acumen to illustrate a solution. The illustrations are sufficient, but more would be useful. The references are expansive, almost overwhelming, yet necessary for a complete understanding of the gravity of the mental illness crisis. The table of contents is adequate and the index is superb. The book is attractive. The appendix detailing the magnitude of deinstitutionalization state by state is provocative, This is a palpable exploration of America's mental illness crisis. It humanely describes the privations of our mentally ill and methodically explores the economic, ideological, and legal reasons for such a state. The provided solution to the crisis is viable and informative. This book will provide mental health workers and the families of the mentally ill with insightful knowledge and has the potential to be acatalyst for change, if read by policymakers.

Biography

E. FULLER TORREY, M.D., is a research psychiatrist at the Neuroscience Center of the National Institute of Mental Health. He is also the author of fifteen books, including the bestselling Surviving Schizophrenia, which has been described as the "bible" of the mentally ill and their families.

Show 927 Mossad: The Greatest Missions of the Israeli Secret Service

2013-01-04
Length: 35s

Show 927 Mossad: The Greatest Missions of the Israeli Secret Service
Show Michael Medved interviews the author Michael Bar-Zohar on his book Mossad: The Greatest Missions of the Israeli Secret Service

Overview of the book.

The Mossad is widely recognized today as the best intelligence service in the world. It is also the most enigmatic, shrouded in secrecy. Mossad: The Greatest Missions of the Israeli Secret Service unveils the defi ning and most dangerous operations that have shaped Israel and the world at large from the agency's more than sixty-year history, among them: the capture of Adolf Eichmann, the eradication of Black September, the destruction of the Syrian nuclear facility, and the elimination of key Iranian nuclear scientists.
Through intensive research and exclusive interviews with Israeli leaders and Mossad agents, authors Michael Bar-Zohar and Nissim Mishal re-create these missions in riveting detail, vividly bringing to life the heroic operatives who risked everything in the face of unimaginable danger. In the words of Shimon Peres, president of Israel, this gripping, white-knuckle read "tells what should have been known and isn't—that Israel's hidden force is as formidable as its recognized physical strength."

Meet the Author

MICHAEL BAR-ZOHAR is a writer, public speaker, and former lawmaker. Author of many novels and nonfiction books, he was a member of the Knesset and envoy to the Council of Europe. A former advisor to General Moshe Dayan, Dr. Bar-Zohar also has served as a professor at Haifa University in Israel and at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He is one of Israel's foremost experts on espionage and the official biographer of David Ben-Gurion and Shimon Peres. He also wrote the biography of Isser Harel, the legendary director of the Mossad, and coauthored The Quest for the Red Prince, which dealt with the bloody war between the Mossad and Black September. Bar-Zohar's books have been translated into eighteen languages.

Show 920 Science Left Behind: Feel-good Fallacies and the Rise of the Anti-Scientific Left

2012-12-19
Length: 35s

Show 920 Science Left Behind: Feel-good Fallacies and the Rise of the Anti-Scientific Left  – by Alex B. Berezow and Hank Campbell

  Pundits and political writers try to convince us that evolution, stem cells and climate change comprise the trifecta of conservative sins against science.  Yet the anti-science left have numerous pet fallacies of their own.  Aversion to nuclear power, animal research and vaccines come naturally to many progressives, supported by little more than junk science and wishful thinking.

Now for the first time, science writers Alex B. Berezow and Hank Campbell have drawn back the curtain on the left’s fear of science.  As Science Left Behind reveals, vague inclinations about the wholesomeness of all things natural, the unhealthiness of the unnatural, and many other seductive fallacies have let to an epidemic of misinformation.  The results: public health crises, damaging and misguided policies, and worst of all a new culture war over basic scientific facts — in which the left is far more dangerous than the right.

It may be shocking to suggest that progressives have a problem with science.  But ideology and objective research don’t mix, especially when the following hot topics are involved:

VACCINES  The anti-vaccine movement has been thoroughly debunked — vaccines do not cause autism, period.  Yet during the H1N1 flu pandemic, the government put pressure on influenza vaccine manufacturers to avoid using thimerosal, a compound falsely alleged to cause autism.  This pointless initiative contributed to a vaccine shortage in 2009.

FOOD  Everything natural is good!  That’s why, according to most progressives, you should boycott genetically modified (GM) food.  Never mind the fact that GM food is essential to feed starving people across the developing world, and that there is no scientific evidence of anything unwholesome about it.

GREEN ENERGY  A large subset of environmentalists have turned against wind power fearing that it’s responsible for killing too many birds — in though in the U.S. it accounts for only about .006% of avian fatalities.  Hydroelectric power is no good either: its dams disrupt riparian ecosystems.  As for solar, word is beginning to spread that the rare earth minerals are just as messy to extract from the ground as coal.  It won’t be long before “green energy” is shorthand for no energy whatsoever.

 

Some Reviews:

Wall Street Journal – “usefully revealing how pervasive scientific misinformation is in progressive arguments on organic and genetically modified foods, clean energy, nuclear waste and other matters.”

Michael Medved, nationally syndicated talk radio host, author of THE 10 BIG LIES ABOUT AMERICA

“Entertaining, enlightening and important. This valuable book should shatter the left’s smug certainty that science registers as a partisan Democrat. Berezow and Campbell provide persuasive evidence and argument that should reshape conventional wisdom on a wide variety of current controversies.”

Kirkus

“A sophisticatedly vitriolic, somewhat tongue-in-cheek addition to the current election debate.”

Publisher’s Weekly

“Their nonpartisan message is clear: Washington as a whole is woefully uninformed when it comes to the scientific underpinnings of pertinent topics like stem cell research, green energy, organic food, vaccines, and gender issues.”

Marginal Revolution

“This excerpt made me giggle: …despite what some progressives will contend, the purpose of this book is not to demonize all progressives.  We just want to demonize the loony ones.”

Show 907 Book- Better than College by Blake Boles. Conservative Talk Radio, Conservative Talk

Length: 59s

 

Show 907  

Segment 1- Blake Boles on his book"Better Than College

 

"If you're undecided, if you just want to go for the social experience, if you just want to move away from home, if you want to generally explore the liberal arts, I think that all those things can be done much more cheaply, effectively, and, again, building more of an entrepreneurial spirit by taking a path that is not traditional college."

Reason TV sat down with Blake Boles to discuss his controversial book, Better Than College, which makes the case for education through entrepreneurship.

Outside of the hard sciences, a degree may or may not guarantee success and may hinder innovation in some cases. Rather than endure the financial stress of five figure student debt, Boles suggests employing creativity and the entrepreneurial spirit to create something of value for the world.

Blake is also the author of College Without High School), is the director of Unschool Adventures, and the founder of Zero Tuition College. In 2003 Blake was studying astrophysics at UC Berkeley when he stumbled upon a treasure trove of books by authors John Taylor Gatto, Grace Llewellyn, John Holt, and other pioneers in the realm of alternative education. Deeply inspired by the philosophies of unschooling and free schooling, Blake custom-designed his final two years of college to study these subjects full-time. After graduating he joined the Not Back to School Camp community and began writing and speaking widely on the subject of self-directed learning.

 

In Blake’s previous lives, he has worked as a high-volume cook, Aurora Borealis physics research assistant, delivery truck driver, math tutor, outdoor science teacher, EMT medic, summer camp director, market researcher, web designer, and windsurfing and tree climbing instructor. He keeps a running goal (and failure) list. His biggest passion is sharing his enthusiasm and experience with young adults who are blazing their own trails through life. He is 30 years old.

 

Do you need college in order to be taken seriously and earn a real living?

Conventional wisdom says yes. But true success relies upon self-knowledge and entrepreneurship: two qualities that you can obtain effectively and inexpensively without traditional college.

 

Better Than College provides the step-by-step guidance and inspiration necessary to design your own higher education. This book teaches you how to find community, stay on track, and get hired or start your own venture, all without a four-year degree. Curious college students will learn to think clearly about their motivations, plan a gap year, or navigate life after school. And Better Than College will show parents how self-directed learning can lead to a lifetime of achievement no expensive institution required.

 

 

Why I Wrote Better Than College (from Blake)

 

Since the 2008-9 recession, we've seen a flurry of books that criticize the notion of college-for-all--such as Academically Adrift, Higher Education?, The Five-Year Party, and Crisis on Campus--as well as many articles and op-ed pieces that make similar arguments. Condensed, these arguments typically amount to:

 

college is overpriced, 

college no longer guarantees success, and 

college no longer offers a rigorous experience.

 

But what we haven't seen are concrete suggestions for what a bright young adult might do with her time instead of going to college. Even if the above arguments are correct, what is a young person to do if there are no viable alternatives to college?

 

That's why I wrote Better Than College. Drawing from my years of involvement in the world of "unschooling" and interviews with dozens of young people who consciously made the decision to skip (or leave) college, I constructed a "how-to" guide for giving yourself a higher education without four-year college.

 

My book doesn't focus on the Gates' and Zuckerbergs who made huge amounts of money without a college degree; for that, take a look at Michael Ellsberg's excellent book The Education of Millionaires. Instead, I focus on how a young person can become financially independent, self-employed (or very happily employed), well-rounded, and well-connected without the grace of a college institution.

 

You don't have to be a young genius to put my principles and concrete advice into action. Rather, this book is for any young adult (or adult-adult) who wants to define his own version of success and isn't satisfied to wait four years (and take on tens of thousands of dollars in debt) to do

Segment 2. Reason TV.   Demonizing DDT: Challenging The Scare Campaign That Has Cost Millions of Lives

To watch the video of this audio segment visit:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXQePTscn5c&feature=share&list=PL153F59E8B8619158

In The Excellent Powder: DDT's Political and Scientific History, Richard Tren and Donald Roberts argue that the infamous insecticide is the world's greatest public-health success stories, saving millions of lives by preventing insect-borne disease. Unfortunately for those in areas still infested with mosquitoes and other flying bugs, DDT is also the world's most-misunderstood substance, the target of a decades-long scientifically ignorant and ideologically motivated campaign that has vastly limited its use and applications.

 

From Rachel Carson in the 1960s to contemporary critics, DDT has been the object of what Roberts, a professor of tropical public health at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, calls "scare campaigns" that link DDT to "theoretical harms to wildlife and human life that simply don't exist."

 

Dubbed "the excellent powder" by Winston Churchill for its life-saving qualities, DDT has the potential to transform the developing world from a malarial hell into something else again. Yet as Tren, the winner of the 2009 Julian L. Simon Award, warns, under current international conventions, global DDT production is scheduled to be halted in 2017, thereby consigning much of the world to less-effective and more-expensive alternatives that will consign millions of poor people to living hell.

 

Reason.tv's Nick Gillespie sat down with Tren and Roberts, who are part of Africa Fighting Malaria, to talk about how DDT got such a bad rap and what can be done to set the record straight.

Approximately 9.15 minutes.

Purchase Book

Widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement when published 50 years ago, Rachel Carson's Silent Spring had a profound impact on our society. While Carson was not the first to write about the dangers of pesticides or to sound environmental alarms, her book captured and retained the attention of the public. As an iconic work, the book has received little critical inquiry, but this landmark anniversary provides an opportunity to reassess its legacy and influence. In Silent Spring at 50: The False Crises of Rachel Carson, experts explore the book's historical context, the science it was built on, and the policy consequences of its core ideas. The conclusions reached by the authors make it clear that the legacy of Silent Spring is highly problematic. Carson made little effort to provide a balanced perspective and consistently ignored key evidence that would have contradicted her work. Thus, while the book provided a range of notable ideas, a number of Carson's major arguments rested on what can only be described as deliberate ignorance. Silent Spring at 50 reveals the dangers of substituting sensationalism for fact, and apocalyptic pronouncements for genuine knowledge. Join Andrew Morriss, one of the book's authors and editors, for what promises to be a unique and compelling discussion.

Show 905 Three TED Presentations. The Future of Online Education.

2012-11-14
Length: 48s

Show 905 TED Presentations. The Future of Online Education.

Segment One- Salman Khan: Let's use video to reinvent education

Salman Khan talks about how and why he created the remarkable Khan Academy, a carefully structured series of educational videos offering complete curricula in math and, now, other subjects. He shows the power of interactive exercises, and calls for teachers to consider flipping the traditional classroom script -- give students video lectures to watch at home, and do "homework" in the classroom with the teacher available to help.

In 2004, Salman Khan, a hedge fund analyst, began posting math tutorials on YouTube. Six years later, he has posted more than 2.000 tutorials, which are viewed nearly 100,000 times around the world each day.

Segment Two-  What we're learning from online education by Daphne Koller

Daphne Koller is enticing top universities to put their most intriguing courses online for free -- not just as a service, but as a way to research how people learn. With Coursera (cofounded by Andrew Ng), each keystroke, quiz, peer-to-peer discussion and self-graded assignment builds an unprecedented pool of data on how knowledge is processed.

With Coursera, Daphne Koller and co-founder Andrew Ng are bringing courses from top colleges online, free, for anyone who wants to take them. Full bio »

We should spend less time at universities filling our students' minds with content by lecturing at them, and more time igniting their creativity … by actually talking with them.” (Daphne Koller)

 Segment Three - Peter Norvig: The 100,000-student classroom

In the fall of 2011 Peter Norvig taught a class with Sebastian Thrun on artificial intelligence at Stanford attended by 175 students in situ -- and over 100,000 via an interactive webcast. He shares what he learned about teaching to a global classroom.

Peter Norvig is a leading American computer scientist, expert on artificial intelligence and the Director of Research at Google Inc

Peers can be the best teachers, because they're the ones that remember what it's like to not understand.” (Peter Norvig)

2012-10-19
Length: 40s

Show 900 Thomas Sowell discusses his essay “‘Trickle Down Theory’ and ‘Tax Cuts for the Rich.’” with guest Thomas Sowell

This week on Uncommon Knowledge, Hoover fellow and author Thomas Sowell discusses his essay “‘Trickle Down Theory’ and ‘Tax Cuts for the Rich.’” (39:52)

“Now anyone who studied history knows that for the first 150 years of this country the federal government did not intervene when the economy turned down. And all that time the downturns all corrected themselves; one of the most classic examples was under Warren G. Harding when, during his first year in office, he found the unemployment rate at 11.7 percent. He did absolutely nothing; he did not spend more government money, he cut back on spending. The Federal Reserve had the interest rates up at 6 or 7 percent, not down at 1 percent, where they are now. The next year unemployment was at 6.7 percent; the year after that it was 2.4 percent. So the economy has recuperative powers. I mean employers have an incentive to hire people. Workers have an incentive to get jobs. Lenders have incentives to lend.”

Show 885 Shadowbosses by Mallory Factor. Conservative Talk Radio.

2012-09-21
Length: 51s

Show 885   In his new book, Shadowbosses, Mallory Factor examines the power and the corruption of government union bosses who manipulate our political system for their own advantage. He provides examples of how money now flows from government employee unions to politicians and back again to the same unions in a never-ending cycle of greed. As a result, he argues that the unions’ interests come first, the workers’ interests second, and the citizens’ interests always come in a distant last place. Furthermore, he posits that these “shadowbosses,” who have organized federal, state, and local government employees, are not only driving America down the path to financial ruin but also are a threat to workers’ freedoms and even our American way of life.

Mallory Factor is the John C. West Professor of International Politics and American Government at The Citadel. He is a political commentator, a Forbes columnist, Senior Editor of Money and Politics for TheStreet.com, and a co-founder of The Monday Meeting, an influential group of conservative political leaders, journalists, donors, think tank heads, and grassroots leaders in New York City. He has written extensively on economic and financial issues for The Wall Street Journal, Christian Science Monitor, and National Review and has appeared on numerous networks and cable stations to discuss and assess such policy issues.  51 minutes

Show 8830Book- Who's Counting?: How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk by John Fund and Hans vonSpakovsky. This is a good interview/debate with the lefty host Linda Killian from Book TV.

http://www.booktv.org/Featured/13746/After+Words+John+Fund+Hans+Von+Spakovsky+Whos+Counting+How+Fraudsters+and+Bureaucrats+Put+Your+Vote+at+Risk+hosted+by+Linda+Killian+Wilson+Center.aspx

 

 Overview of the book-

The 2012 election will be one of the hardest-fought in U.S. history. It is also likely to be one of the closest, a fact that brings concerns about voter fraud and bureaucratic incompetence in the conduct of elections front and center. If we don't take notice, we could see another debacle like the Bush-Gore Florida recount of 2000 in which courts and lawyers intervened in what should have involved only voters.

Who's Counting? will focus attention on many problems of our election system, ranging from voter fraud to a slipshod system of vote counting that noted political scientist Walter Dean Burnham calls “the most careless of the developed world.” In an effort to clean up our election laws, reduce fraud and increase public confidence in the integrity of the voting system, many states ranging from Georgia to Wisconsin have passed laws requiring a photo ID be shown at the polls and curbing the rampant use of absentee ballots, a tool of choice by fraudsters. The response from Obama allies has been to belittle the need for such laws and attack them as akin to the second coming of a racist tide in American life. In the summer of 2011, both Bill Clinton and DNC chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz preposterously claimed that such laws suppressed minority voters and represented a return to the era of Jim Crow.

But voter fraud is a well-documented reality in American elections. Just this year, a sheriff and county clerk in West Virginia pleaded guilty to stuffing ballot boxes with fraudulent absentee ballots that changed the outcome of an election. In 2005, a state senate election in Tennessee was overturned because of voter fraud. The margin of victory? 13 votes. In 2008, the Minnesota senate race that provided the 60th vote needed to pass Obamacare was decided by a little over 300 votes. Almost 200 felons have already been convicted of voting illegally in that election and dozens of other prosecutions are still pending. Public confidence in the integrity of elections is at an all-time low. In the Cooperative Congressional Election Study of 2008, 62% of American voters thought that voter fraud was very common or somewhat common. Fear that elections are being stolen erodes the legitimacy of our government. That's why the vast majority of Americans support laws like Kansas's Secure and Fair Elections Act. A 2010 Rasmussen poll showed that 82% of Americans support photo ID laws.

While Americans frequently demand observers and best practices in the elections of other countries, we are often blind to the need to scrutinize our own elections. We may pay the consequences in 2012 if a close election leads us into pitched partisan battles and court fights that will dwarf the Bush-Gore recount wars

Show 879 Dinesh D’Souza. Debate. Is Christianity Good for American Politics?

2012-09-07
Length: 2s

 Show 879 Dinesh D’Souza debates the topic  “Is Christianity Good for American Politics? “

 To Watch the video of this audio presentation visit   http://youtu.be/Wd2F5mwAWG4

 Today, many argue that religious liberty is under assault while others believe that faith is meant for the private realm and its public expression stands in the way of a secular political discourse. This issue is certainly apparent in the controversy surrounding the HHS bill. This being the case, a debate over the role of Christianity in American politics could not be more pertinent.

Dinesh D'souza, recent author of "What's so Great About Christianity?" and president of the King's College, has been called one of the "top young public-policy makers in the country" by Investor's Business Daily. The New York Times Magazine named him one of America's most influential conservative thinkers. D'Souza's articles have appeared in virtually every major magazine and newspaper, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic Monthly, Vanity Fair, New Republic, and National Review. He has appeared on numerous television programs, including the Today Show, Nightline, The News Hour, O'Reilly Factor, Moneyline, and Hannity and Colmes.

 Susan Jacoby, program director at The Center for Inquiry and author of New York Times bestseller, The Age of American Unreason (2008)and Alger Hiss and The Battle for History (2009), is an independent scholar whose work focuses on American intellectual history. Jacoby has been a contributor for more than 25 years, on topics including law, religion, medicine, aging, women's rights, political dissent in the Soviet Union, and Russian literature, to a wide range of periodicals and newspapers. Her articles and essays have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Washington Post Book World, Los Angeles Times Book Review, Newsday, Harper's, The Nation, Vogue, The American Prospect, Mother Jones, and the AARP Magazine, among other publications.

2012-08-31
Length: 55s

Show 877 Glenn Beck and Mark Levin with Paul Kengor about his new book "The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mentor"

 Segment One- Glenn Beck spent a full hour with author Paul Kengor about his new book "The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mentor" 34 minutes

 To watch the video of this audio presentation visit   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBeTrBvQLrc

 There were hundreds of thousands of American communists like Frank who agitated throughout the twentieth century. They chose the wrong side of history, a horrendously bloody side that left a wake of more than 100 million corpses from the streets of the Bolshevik Revolution to the base of the Berlin Wall—double the combined dead of the century's two world wars. And they never apologized. Quite the contrary, they cursed their accusers for daring to charge (correctly) that they were communists whose ideology threatened the American way and the greater world and all of humanity. They took their denials to the grave, and still today their liberal/progressive dupes continue to conceal their crimes and curse their accusers for them. We need hundreds and thousands of more books on American communists like Frank, so we can finally start to get this history right— and, more so, learn its vital lessons. To fail to do so is a great historical injustice.

 We especially need to flesh out these lessons, which are morality tales in the truest sense of the word, when we find the rarest case of a man like "Frank" managing to influence someone as influential as the current president of the United States of America—the leader of the free world and driver of the mightiest political/economic engine in history. Such figures cannot be ignored.

 The people who influence our presidents matter.

 Of course, Frank also invested his writing talent in noble purposes: advancing civil rights by chronicling the persecutions of a black man. Interestingly, to that end, Frank's memoirs are remarkably similar to Barack Obama's memoirs; the running thread being the racial struggles of a young black man in America.

 Frank's memoirs reveal an often bitter man, one who had suffered the spear of racial persecution. His contempt for his culture and society also led to a low view of America. When America is acknowledged in his memoirs, it is not a pretty portrait: "The United States was the only slaveholding nation in the New World that completely dehumanized Africans by considering them as chattel, placing them in the same category as horses, cattle, and furniture." That attitude, wrote Frank, was still held by too many American whites.11 Thus, his hometown of Arkansas City was "no better or worse than a thousand other places under the Stars and Stripes."

 Again, that bitterness is understandable, a toxic by-product of the evil doings of Frank's tormentors. Yet what is unfortunate about Frank's narrative is the lack of concession, smothered (as it was) by resentment, that this same America, no matter the sins of its children...(Amazon.com)

 Segment Two- Mark Levin interviews Paul Kengor author of THE COMMUNIST: THE UNTOLD STORY OF BARACK OBAMA'S MENTOR. 17 minutes

In Priceless, Dr. John Goodman takes the Affordable Care Act to task, rejects the Obama Administration’s vision, and offers a no-nonsense approach to health care reform. Arguing that the United States should create a market for sick people, in which health plans vigorously compete to solve the problems of diabetics, asthmatics, heart patients, cancer patients, and others with high expected health care costs, he maintains that every example of a center of excellence – producing high-quality, low-cost care – originated from the supply side of the market, not the demand side. With practical advice on how typical employers can cut employee health costs in half, Dr. Goodman also examines a variety of health-related topics, including malpractice, insurance reform, and the institution of a privatized Medicare program.

John C. Goodman, Ph.D. is President and Founder of the National Center for Policy Analysis, where is a Kellye Wright Fellow in Health Care. He also serves as a Research Fellow at the Independent Institute. He is the author of more than 50 studies on health policy, retirement reform, and tax issues, as well as nine books, including Leaving Women Behind: Modern Families, Outdated Laws; Lives at Risk: Single Payer National Health Insurance Around the World; and The Patient Power: Solving America's Health Care Crisis. His articles have been featured in publications such as Health Affairs, National Review, and The Wall Street Journal

Show 870 Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and the Shameless Cover-Up.

2012-08-15
Length: 35s

Show 870 Dennis Prager talks Katie Pavlich, contributing editor for Townhall Magazine and news editor for Townhall.com. Her new book is Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and the Shameless Cover-Up.

 

Overview of Book from Publisher-

A horrifying look at one of the bloodiest scandals in the history of the American presidency, Fast and Furious is this season's sensational, mustread book that will rock America—and the Obama administration—to its core.

200 and rising. That's the death tally for the Obama administration's "Operation Fast & Furious." The program was supposedly designed to "win the drug war" by deliberately walking more than 2,000 guns across the border to Mexico. But instead of catching drug lords, Fast & Furious armed the very king pins it was supposed to trap. Despite the protests of gun store owners and ATF whistleblowers, federal agents deliberately violated federal law—and common sense—and wound up placing American weapons into the hands of Mexico's most violent criminals. And when the guns started showing up at crime scenes—including the murder scene of a U.S. border patrol agent—the coverup began.

So reveals Townhall Editor Katie Pavlich in her newsbreaking exposé Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal. While the White House has claimed ignorance of the program, Pavlich debunks their lies, denials and excuses by demonstrating incontestable proof that President Obama and Attorney General Holder did willfully and knowingly sanction the program in order to advance their antisecond amendment agenda.

Show 868 Nullification:How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.

Length: 34s

Show  868 Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.

 To watch the video of this audio presentation visit   http://youtu.be/hxxJYbZktyQ

Best selling author Thomas Woods was Monday's keynote speaker and addressed the sheriffs and their guests at the evening's banquet, delivering a sweeping and humorous history of nullification by the states, and how it comports with the sheriffs' efforts to nullify federal and state tyranny.

"And suddenly people are peering into the long neglected Thomas Jefferson toolkit. And they're looking for things that might work. Now some of these things, like nullification, I have to warn you, are not approved by the New York Times. And, in fact, what I tell you tonight does not fall inside that box that all good Americans are supposed to confine themselves to. We're supposed to be in that box. You all know it. It goes from Joe Biden to Mitt Romney. You're allowed to be somewhere in there. But, if you stray a little bit over here citizen, be careful, be careful - you're not respectable. Well my view is, is that it's our job as good and decent Americans to crush that box into the ground and then set it on fire."

On January 30-31, 2012 over 100 county sheriffs and peace officers, from over 30 states, united to uphold their oaths of office, protect citizen liberty, and stop state and federal tyranny. Inspired and led by the example of former Graham County Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack, the meeting, which was held in Las Vegas, was funded by the generous donations of thousands of Americans from all fifty states, as well as the support of freedom loving sponsors. 

The agenda included training on the Bill of Rights, Interposition, Nullification and the importance of Property Rights versus Privileges.  Many sheriffs, a police chief and even a county commissioner shared their experiences, challenges and actions taken to uphold their oaths of office, directly with the sheriffs in attendance.

The videos of these presentations are shared here on the County Sheriff Project YouTube channel. We hope that you will share these videos with your own county sheriff and all the oath takers in your county.  To read the meeting agenda, see the event sponsors, learn more and show your own support for helping back more constitutional county sheriffs, visit http://www.CountySheriffProject.org

Segment 1- Edward Klein w/ Glenn Beck on the Radio Talking Barack Obama "The Amateur" Rev. Jeremiah Wright  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXjN_n6VjBI

 

 The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House

From the Inside Flap

Think you know the real Barack Obama? You don't—not until you've read The Amateur

 

In this stunning exposé, bestselling author Edward Klein—a contributing editor to Vanity Fair, former foreign editor of Newsweek, and former editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine—pulls back the curtain on one of the most secretive White Houses in history. He reveals a callow, thin-skinned, arrogant president with messianic dreams of grandeur supported by a cast of true-believers, all of them united by leftist politics and an amateurish understanding of executive leadership.

 

In The Amateur you'll discover: Why the so-called "centrist" Obama is actually in revolt against the values of the society he was elected to lead Why Bill Clinton loathes Barack Obama and tried to get Hillary to run against him in 2012 The spiteful rivalry between Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey How Obama split the Kennedy family How Obama has taken more of a personal role in making foreign policy than any president since Richard Nixon—with disastrous results How Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett are the real powers behind the White House throne

 

The Amateur is a reporter's book, buttressed by nearly 200 interviews, many of them with the insiders who know Obama best. The result is the most important political book of the year. You will never look at Barack Obama the same way again.

 

From the Back Cover

Praise for The Amateur

 

"The Amateur is the best book I've read on how Barack Obama is wrecking our country. I urge everyone who cares about America to read Edward Klein's eye-opening book."

—Donald J. Trump, world-famous businessman, owner and host of the hit NBC TV shows The Apprentice and Celebrity Apprentice, and bestselling author of many titles, including Time to Get Tough: Making America #1 Again

 

 

"This is a racy, entertaining, informative book that illuminates aspects of Obama and his team that have not been previously reported. A necessary antidote to the Obama worship that is sure to characterize the election debate."

—Dinesh D'Souza, president of The King's College and bestselling author of The Roots of Obama's Rage

 

"All the horrors I predicted in Welcome to Obamaland have now been definitively proven true by Edward Klein's rip-roaringly readable new book The Amateur, which uses great stories and great reporting to illustrate just how ideological, arrogant, and hapless Obama and his administration really are. An outstanding demolition job on the most overrated president of our time."

—James Delingpole, columnist for the Daily Telegraph and the Spectator and author of Welcome to Obamaland

 

"A devastating indictment of the lethal combination of incompetence and radicalism that has made Obama into one of the worst presidents in American history."

—Norman Podhoretz, former editor of Commentary magazine and author of many books, including most recently, Why Are Jews Liberals?

In Signature in the Cell, Dr. Stephen Meyer examines how the digital code embedded in DNA points powerfully to a designing intelligence and helps unravel a mystery that Darwin did not address: how did the very first life begin?  Join us as Dr. Meyer investigates how new scientific discoveries are pointing to intelligent design as the best explanation for the complexity of life and the universe.

 

    How does an intelligent person become a proponent of Intelligent Design?  Anyone who stereotypes IDers as anti-scientific ideologues or fundamentalists should read Dr. Stephen Meyer's compelling intellectual memoir.  Meyer as a student became fascinated with the "DNA Enigma" - how the information to produce life originated - and at considerable risk to his career hasn't given up trying to solve the mystery.  Meyer shows how step by step he concluded that Intelligent Design is the most likely explanation of how the DNA code came to be.

 

       - Dr. Marvin Olasky, Provost, The King's College, New York City and Editor-in-chief, World

 

Stephen C. Meyer is Director and Senior Fellow of the Center for Science and Culture at the Discovery Institute in Seattle.  Dr. Meyer earned his Ph.D. in the History and Philosophy of Science from Cambridge University for a dissertation on the history of origin of life biology and the methodology of the historical sciences.

Show 851 Part 7 of 8. Audio book. To Destroy you is no Loss.

"To keep you is no benefit, to destroy you is no loss." The taunting slogan used by the Cambodian Communists to intimidate millions of Cambodians in 1975 sets the mood for this incredible survival story. Teeda, who was fifteen at the time of the Khmer Rouge take-over, chronicles her family's fearful existence and their emigration to America. Moore has a clear, soft voice; she gives the story the straightforward yet sensitive reading it deserves. Images of the horror of Teeda's family's deprivation, their sorrows and fears, the love and support within the family, and the strength of the human will to survive are all powerfully communicated by her careful phrasing and subtle changes in tone.  To Destroy You is No Loss. By Joan D. Criddle, Teeda Butt Mam. Narrated by Christina Moore. (from cover case)

Show 840 National Review Online Selections- Still the Best Hope, Tyranny of Cliches, Free Market Fairness

2012-05-18
Length: 34s

Show 840   Three Selections from National Review Online

Please visit the archives of National Review Online- Between the covers for many author audio interviews at:

http://radio.nationalreview.com/betweenthecovers/   

 

Selection 1- Jonah Goldberg on The Tyranny of Clichés "Liberals lie. They flatly lie when they say they're not ideological. But the first people they lie to are themselves, and this is why they are constantly...being surprised by reality," say Jonah Golderg, author of The Tyranny of Cliches: How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas.

 

Selection 2- Dennis Prager on Still the Best Hope  "The Left sells leftism. Muslims sell Islam. And Americans don't sell anything. This is what's driving me crazy. We have this phenomenal response to the problem of unjust suffering and we don't know it," says Dennis Prager, author of Still the Best Hope: Why the World Needs American Values to Triumph.

 

Selection 3- John Tomasi on Free Market Fairness "[A] lot of [Adam Smith's] justification for limited government is given in terms of the positive effects that such a society will have on the poor. Somehow...the idea that being concerned for the poor morphed into a concern for social justice that was tied to big state government programs," says John Tomasi, author of Free Market Fairness.

Show 837 The Tyranny of Cliches: How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas

2012-05-09
Length: 34s

Show 837  Dennis Pragertalks to Jonah Goldberg, editor of National Review Online, columnist for the Los Angeles Times and fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. His new book is The Tyranny of Cliches: How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas.

 

 

Overview of the Book-

The bestselling author of Liberal Fascism dismantles the progressive myths that are passed-off as wisdom in our schools, media and politics.

 

According to Jonah Goldberg, if the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist, the greatest trick liberals ever pulled was convincing themselves that they’re not ideological.

 

Today, “objective” journalists, academics and “moderate” politicians peddle some of the most radical arguments by hiding them in homespun aphorisms.  Barack Obama casts himself as a disciple of reason and sticks to one refrain above all others: he’s a pragmatist, opposed to the ideology and dogma of the right, solely concerned with “what works.” And today’s liberals follow his lead, spouting countless clichés such as:

 

 

•One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter: Sure, if the other man is an idiot. Was Martin Luther King Jr. a terrorist? Was Bin Laden a freedom fighter?

•Violence never solves anything: Really? It solved our problems with the British empire and ended slavery.

•Better ten guilty men go free than one innocent man suffer: So you won’t mind if those ten guilty men move next door to you?

•Diversity is strength: Cool. The NBA should have a quota for midgets and one-legged point guards!

•We need complete separation of church and state: In other words all expressions of faith should be barred from politics …except when they support liberal programs.

 

With humor and passion, Goldberg dismantles these and many other Trojan Horses that liberals use to cheat in the war of ideas. He shows that the grand Progressive tradition of denying an ideological agenda while pursuing it vigorously under the false-flag of reasonableness is alive and well.  And he reveals how this dangerous game may lead us further down the path of self-destruction.

Welcome to Week 10

“The Recovery of the Constitution”

To watch the video of this lecture visit:

http://www.hillsdale.edu/constitution/week_10_lecture.aspx

 

Overview

Statesmanship, for Franklin D. Roosevelt, entailed the “redefinition” of “rights in terms of a changing and growing social order.” Fulfilling the promise of Progressivism, President Roosevelt’s New Deal gave rise to unlimited government. In contrast to Franklin D. Roosevelt and his ideological successors, John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, Ronald Reagan sought the restoration of limited government. Today, our choice is clear: Will we live by the principles of the American Founding, or by the values of the Progressives?

 

Franklin D. Roosevelt announced his campaign for the presidency in 1932 by emphasizing the Progressive understanding of history and by calling for the “redefinition” of the old idea of rights. His “New Deal,” a series of economic programs ostensibly aimed at extricating America from the Great Depression, vastly enlarged the size and scope of the federal government. Unelected bureaucratic agencies—“the administrative state”—became a fact of American life.

 

Roosevelt’s call for a “Second Bill of Rights” sought to add “security” to the rights of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Describing the “old rights” of life and liberty as “inadequate” without underlying economic security, Roosevelt called for new economic rights for all, including the right to a job, a home, a fair wage, education, and medical care. With these rights guaranteed, Roosevelt argued, real political equality finally could be achieved.

 

Following President Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy’s “New Frontier” and Lyndon B. Johnson’s “Great Society” continued the transformation of the relationship between the American people and their government. President Johnson redefined the government’s role by redefining equality itself: equality must be a “result” rather than a “right.” Expanded federal control over education, transportation, welfare, and medical care soon followed.

 

Announcing that “with the present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem,” Ronald Reagan appealed to the principles of the American Founding in seeking to reduce the size and scope of the federal government. Maintaining that Progressivism and the consent of the governed are incompatible, Reagan called for a return to individual self-rule and national self-government.

 Welcome to Week 9

“The Progressive Rejection of the Founding”

Overview

Progressivism is the belief that America needs to move or “progress” beyond the principles of the American Founding. Organized politically more than a hundred years ago, Progressivism insists upon flexibility in political forms unbound by fixed and universal principles. Progressives hold that human nature is malleable and that society is perfectible. Affirming the inexorable, positive march of history, Progressives see the need for unelected experts who would supervise a vast administration of government.

 

Progressivism is rooted in the philosophy of European thinkers, most notably the German philosopher G.W.F. Hegel. Progressivism takes its name from a faith in “historical progress.” According to the leading lights of Progressivism, including Woodrow Wilson, Theodore Roosevelt, and John Dewey, human nature has evolved beyond the limitations that the Founders identified. Far from fearing man’s capacity for evil, Progressives held that properly enlightened human beings could be entrusted with power and not abuse it.

 

The Progressive idea of historical progress is tied to the idea of historical contingency, which means that each period of history is guided by different and unique values that change over time. The “self-evident truths” that the Founders upheld in the Declaration of Independence, including natural rights, are no longer applicable. Circumstances, not eternal principles, ultimately dictate justice.

 

If human nature is improving, and fixed principles do not exist, government must be updated according to the new reality. The Constitution’s arrangement of government, based upon the separation of powers, checks and balances, and federalism, only impeded effective government, according to Progressives. The limited government of the Founding is rejected in favor of a “living Constitution.”

 Welcome to Week 8

“Abraham Lincoln and the Constitution”

Overview

Abraham Lincoln’s fidelity to the Declaration of Independence is equally a fidelity to the Constitution. The Constitution takes its moral life from the principles of liberty and equality, and was created to serve those principles. We are divided as a nation today, as in Lincoln’s time, because we have severed the connection between these two documents.

 

Lincoln’s “Fragment on the Constitution and the Union” contains the central theme of Lincoln’s life and work. Drawing upon biblical language, Lincoln describes the Declaration of Independence as an “apple of gold,” and the Constitution as the “frame of silver” around it. We cannot consider the Constitution independently of the purpose which it was designed to serve.

 

The Constitution acts to guard the principles enshrined in the Declaration of Independence. As the embodiment of the Declaration’s principles, the Constitution created a frame of government with a clear objective. The Constitution is not a collection of compromises, or an empty vessel whose meaning can be redefined to meet the needs of the time; it is the embodiment of an eternal, immutable truth.

 

Abraham Lincoln defended the Union and sought to defeat the Confederate insurrection because he held that the principles of the Declaration and Constitution were inviolable. In his speeches and in his statecraft, Lincoln wished to demonstrate that self-government is not doomed to either be so strong that it overwhelms the rights of the people or so weak that it is incapable of surviving.

Welcome to Week 6

“Religion, Morality, and Property”

Overview-   The institutional separation of church and state—a revolutionary accomplishment of the American Founders—does not entail the separation of religion and politics. On the contrary, as the Northwest Ordinance states, “religion, morality and knowledge” are “necessary to good government.”

For America’s Founders, reason and revelation properly understood are complementary. “Almighty God hath created the mind free,” wrote Thomas Jefferson in the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom. Human beings are fallible, yet despite this fact, they are capable of self-government.

With careful cultivation of one’s soul, attention to “the laws of nature and of nature’s God,” and the uplifting assistance of family, church, and the local community, an individual is able to tame base passions and live worthy of the blessings of liberty. Virtue is vital to good government.

Among the greatest of blessings—and the most important of rights—is religious liberty. Rejecting the low standard of mere “toleration” that existed elsewhere, the Founders enshrined liberty of conscience as a matter of right. It is immoral, they held, for any government to coerce religious belief. Yet they also argued that it is advisable for governments to recognize their reliance upon “Divine Providence,” and to provide for the support and encouragement of religion.

The government of the United States (or any of the fifty states) is not a church, and the church is not a governmental entity. This institutional separation, a clear statement of which is in the First Amendment, is a boon to both religion and politics, for instead of tying man’s religious fate to the future of the state, the establishment of religious liberty frees up religion so that it might flourish. This important point is missed by the Supreme Court’s misinterpretation, repeated numerous times since 1947, of Thomas Jefferson’s “wall of separation between church and state” metaphor.

“The Separation of Powers: Ensuring Good Government”

To watch the video of this lecture visit:  http://www.hillsdale.edu/constitution/week_05_lecture.aspx

Overview

The separation of powers helps to ensure good government at the same time it guards against tyranny. Independent in function but coordinated in the pursuit of justice, the three branches of government—legislative, executive, and judicial—must each have enough power to resist the encroachment of the others, and yet not so much that the liberty of the people is lost.

A political regime has three dimensions: the ruling institutions, the rulers, and the way of life of the people. In America, the rulers—the people themselves—and their ruling institutions—staffed by the people’s representatives—aim at securing the Creator-endowed natural rights of all citizens. The Framers did this in two ways. “Vertically” considered, our ruling institutions are defined by federalism, or the division of power between the national, state, and local governments. “Horizontally” considered, the ruling institutions of the federal government itself are separated and co-equal.

In the American regime, the Constitution is the “supreme law of the land.” No one branch is superior to it; all three branches have a duty to abide by it. While each of the three branches plays a unique role in the passage, execution, and interpretation of laws, all of the branches must work together in the governing process.

The legislative branch is closest to the people. It is also the branch in which the danger of majority tyranny lurks. The passions of the people are reflected most in the House of Representatives, where the members are elected for terms of two years. The Senate, with its six year terms, was designed to be a more stable legislative presence than the House.

The defining characteristic of the executive is “energy.” The president can act swiftly and decisively to deal with foreign threats and to enforce the law, and can also provide a check on legislative tyranny through the veto.

Members of the judiciary, the third branch of government, must exercise judgment in particular cases to secure individual rights. Through “judicial review,” the judiciary is given the authority to strike down laws that are contrary to the Constitution. But judicial review is not judicial supremacy; even the Supreme Court must rely upon the other branches once it has rendered judgment.

The checks that each branch can exercise against the encroachment of the others ultimately protect the liberties of the people. The separation of powers promotes justice and good government by having each branch perform its proper function. This institutional design allows the sovereign people to observe and to know which branch is responsible for which actions in order to hold each to account. The sense of mutual responsibility built into the separation of powers is a reflection of the moral and civic responsibility all Americans share.

“The Separation of Powers: Preventing Tyranny”

 

 To watch the video of this lecture visit:

http://www.hillsdale.edu/constitution/week_04_lecture.aspx

 

Overview-

Separation of powers is the central structural feature of the United States Constitution. The division of power among the three branches—legislative, executive, and judicial—is necessitated because human beings are imperfect. The imperfection of human nature means that well-structured government is necessary, though not sufficient, to prevent tyranny.

 

The United States Constitution is structurally designed in part to prevent tyranny. Separation of powers is the means by which power is divided and its accumulation in the hands of any single entity denied.

 

During the 1780s, most states had constitutions that formally divided the government’s power, yet in practice the legislatures dominated. The state constitutions required separation of powers in theory, but failed to deliver it in reality. As a result, the constitutions were little more than what Publius called “parchment barriers.”

 

In order for separation of powers to work, each branch of government must have the “constitutional means” to resist the encroachment of the other branches. This is what today we call “checks and balances.”

 

In addition to institutional checks and balances, there exist also the “personal motives” of people that will lead them to resist the encroachment of the other branches. Human nature is constant across the ages, according to Publius, and human beings are naturally ambitious. Instead of ignoring or attempting to suppress ambition, the Framers sought to channel it through the Constitution, so that it might serve the cause of liberty and justice rather than threaten it.

  

The Framers understood that human nature has noble characteristics that are essential to self-government, but also that it contains baser features, for which government must account. The Constitution’s structural separation of powers recognizes this truth, and in preventing tyranny makes self-government possible.

Overview-   At the heart of the American constitutional crisis of the mid-nineteenth century stood the moral, social, and political evil of slavery. At stake in this crisis was the future of republican self-government.

 

Abraham Lincoln saw the dilemma facing the nation as the “crisis of a house divided.” While the American Founders worked to put slavery, as Lincoln said, “on the course of ultimate extinction,” the institution had instead flourished in the first half of the nineteenth century. By the 1850s, efforts to expand slavery threatened to tear the nation apart.

 

Illinois Senator Stephen Douglas championed the idea that Americans living in the territories should choose whether or not slavery should be legal there. “Popular sovereignty” eventually became the law of the land with the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, which repealed the Missouri Compromise of 1820.

 

For Lincoln, “popular sovereignty” was an abandonment of moral principle. Man does not have a moral right to choose a moral wrong. Self-government cannot mean ruling other human beings without their consent. The Kansas-Nebraska Act, although disguised in the language of liberty and self-government, was in fact at odds with the core principles of the American regime.

 

The Supreme Court’s Dred Scott decision marked a further departure from the principles of the American Founding. Writing for the majority in 1857, Chief Justice Roger Taney declared that the Founders never intended for the principles of natural right enunciated in the Declaration to apply to blacks—whether enslaved or emancipated. Furthermore, Congress had no right to ban slavery in the territories. For Lincoln and the opponents of slavery, this decision was not only constitutionally and historically wrong, but it also further enabled the legal expansion of slavery nationwide.

 

Lincoln and Douglas debated both popular sovereignty and the Dred Scott decision in their Illinois Senate race of 1858. Douglas maintained that self-government an
