Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

And the Big Lie Dies

In the aftermath of the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, thousands looted and trashed many local businesses that had absolutely nothing to do with the incident. The insane behavior, looters proclaimed, was a protest against the white officer who shot and killed Brown, a black teen. When the dust settled and the media left town, the St. Louis chapter of the Tea Party came to the rescue. Visiting the businesses in Ferguson that sustained damage, the Tea Party offered encouragement and bought their products to help get them back on their feet. Wild Bill says that when a black man in one of the stores witnessed the goodwill, he couldn’t believe his eyes. “And just ike that, the big lie died,” Wild Bill says. “What is the big lie? That the Tea Party is racist.” Tune in as Wild Bill explains in this edition of Wild Bill for America.

Californians Turning on Obama

President Obama’s approval rating continues to plunge, even in the Democrat-friendly state of California. Says Jodie Miller, “Fewer and fewer Californians now describe Obama as ‘muy bueno.'” Check out this edition of NewsBusted, as Miller also touches on the U.S. Post Office, U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu, Bill O’Reilly and Detroit bankruptcy.

Regulations, Food Don’t Jive

Dan D’Amico, professor of economics at Loyola University in New Orleans, is terse: Government food regulations make us less healthy. And this includes the “organic myth,” says D’Amico. A good example, he says, are regulations that certify food as organic. “Don’t these regulations help small farmers. Unfortunately, no,” D’Amico says. “Buying organic has become a billion-dollar industry. Big businesses have lots of resources to invest time and money to make sure they benefit from and comply with organic certification. Small farmers, on the other hand, have a harder time affording the monetary costs of paperwork and the cost of complying.” Join the conversation on this edition of Learn Liberty as D’Amico elaborates.

Democrats Turning On Obama

President Obama’s failure to engage in a plethora of crises confronting his administration has worked the Republicans into a frenzy. But shockingly, the president is beginning to feel the heat from his own party. His actions–or inaction–in recent months have turned off Latinos and Peaceniks, two key elements of his coalition. Political pundit Dick Morris says Obama’s immigration promises and action in the Middle East has his own party members breathing fire. Tune in as Morris explains the quadary Obama has created.

Wealth in Knowledge

Not surprisingly, the most essential factor in creating wealth is not money but knowledge. While the deduction is a simple one, there are some additional factors in the overall equation. Economist George Gilder, co-founder of the Discovery Institute, says, “Here’s how it works. More freedom, more knowledge, more innovation. And more innovation leads to dynamic economic growth. Less freedom, less knowledge, less innovation … less economic growth.” Listen in, Gilder lays out more facts in this edition of Prager University.

Wonders of the Deep Blue Sea

Who would have thunk it? The deep blue sea, once thought to be a serene landscape devoid of life, is teeming with thousands of creatures. Some of them exude beauty, many are bizarre and a few are downright scary. In the following video, Hybrid Librarian reveals the deep sea’s 10 most amazing lifeforms.

The 9/11 ISIS Threat

As the country commemorates the 13th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, there is growing concern that we are not yet through dealing with these mongrels. The new threat on the horizon is ISIS–the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria–which is wreaking havoc in the Middle East with abandon and setting its sights on the USA. Not only is this new brand of terror more powerful than Al-Qaeda ever was, but also more brutal and richer. Adding insult to injury, ISIS is padding its ever-growing force by thousands every month, including foreign mercenaries, many from the United States. Voice of America News breaks down the crisis with analysis and commentary.

America’s Police State

The scenes are familiar ones. Police forces smashing down doors in early morning raids, single protestors surrounded by an army of cops in full military gear with assault rifles or deputies arresting members of the media just trying to do their jobs. Evidence of a rapidly evolving police state, or business as usual. Investigative journalist John Stossel calls it the militarization of America, which incidently came to the forefront at full throttle with the recent shooting of a young man in Ferguson, Missouri. Stossel delves deeper into the crisis along with Cheryl K. Chumley, author of Police State U.S.A. in this edition of LibertyPen.

U.S. Swings Conservative

It’s a fact that more Americans identify themselves as conservative more than liberal in 47 states. This, of course, includes a slew of red states. So, why do you ask, are these statistics not reflected in the voting booth. Because “the radical lefties are in charge,” opines political pundit Joe Dan Gorman. “Our problem is that conservative Americans, we bicker about ridiculous crap, while these radical lefties, they’re galvanized. They walk in lockstep, or goose step.” Tune in to this edition of Intellectual Froglegs as Gorman also touches on the Obama Administration’s bias on corporate America, so-called liberal diversity and their special-interest groups and a segment on American economist Milton Friedman and free enterprise.
