The College Diversity Scam

Manhattan Institute political commentator and journalist Heather Mac Donald asks, “Are colleges across America rife with racism, sexism and homophobia?” The question is especially germane to California universities, which spend millions of dollars combating these issues. Mac Donald explains whether the problem is prevalent in our universities or whether the diversity bureaucracy is just a big waste of money in this edition of Prager University.

Obama Ends Net Freedom

The Internet is being executed and being put under government slavery. That’s the word from political pundit Dick Morris. The recently imposed regulations by the Federal Communications Commission under the guise to terminate Internet neutrality, will actually end Internet freedom, Morris says. “Obama will have accomplished a goal that Vladimir Putin would love to achieve, which is ending Internet freedom,” Morris says. He explains in this edition of Dick Morris Reports.

A Matter Of Transparency

Marc Hyden, of Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty, says conservatives should fight for transparency when it comes to death-penalty drugs. “When you’re talking about the transparency issues where they’re making these secret drug combinations, it has nothing to do with national security but it’s being paid for with taxpayer funds so we deserve and have the right to know where that money is going.” Hyden elaborates in this special edition of Reason TV.

Another Hillary Boo-Boo

The New York Times‘ breaking news story that Hillary Clinton used her private e-mail account to conduct government business while she was Secretary of State has shocked more than a few Washington establishment types, and political pundit Dick Morris, too. Not only did Clinton’s selfish actions disappear under the radar but also may have well compromised national security. “The reason government officials are required–particularly in the area of national security–to use the government e-mail, not their personal e-mail, is precisely to permit transparency, because what’s the property of the government can be subpoenad by the government and examined, whereas personal e-mails can be destroyed and are much more difficult to obtain and are not transparent,” Morris says.

Obama’s Policy Ruse Exposed

President Obama has made a mockery of our Constitution with his deceptive manipulation of issues impacting the country. But his under-the-radar policies get seen in the light of day as Bill Whittle gets down to brass tacks on illegal immigration in this edition of “Firewall” on Truth Revolt.

Big Brother is Watching You

The concept of Little Free Libraries in neighborhoods across America, where you can take a book and leave a book sans any regulation, is rapidly growing in popularity. Unfortunately, Big Brother wants a piece of the action, too. State officials are threatening to tear down these neighborly libraries unless communities involved apply for an expensive permit. Writes Connor Friedersdorf in The Atlantic, “The power to require permits is the power to prevent something from ever existing.” Join Stephen Green, Scott Ott and Bill Whittle as they discuss how Americans lost the “private” from private property in this edition of “Trifecta” on PJTV.

Know Thy Enemy

Glenn Beck encourages both sides of the political spectrum to pay close attention to ISIS and what they believe before making any decision to put boots on the ground in the Middle East. “How can you have a sound battle plan or a strategy if you don’t know the goal of the enemy,” Becks says. The crisis might well end up as World War III, or as ISIS calls it, the last battle, he says.

Government vs. Small Business

Two of the staples of the conservative platform are less taxes and small government. And this is especially espoused when the Goliath which is our government takes on small business, aka David. More times than not, government thrives on creating obstacles for small business, as has been prevalent in the current administration. Consumer advocate John Stossel welcomes small-business owners Martha Boneta and Marty Kotis to discuss their experience with Big Brother in this edition of Liberty Pen.

Detroit Sucks, But Why?

PJTV’s Steven Crowder takes a closer look at the city of Detroit, which transformed from the envy of the industrial world to a city in ruins. The Motor City unemployment rate is sky high, the economy in in ruins and the real estate market has collapsed. Why has this happened? Crowder asks. “It’s no secret that Detroit’s run by leftists,” Crowder says. “Every single mayor of Detroit since 1961 has been a liberal. It is the city of entitlement programs.” And hold on, the corrupt unions are not without blame. Crowder says the UAW has run the auto industry into the ground and the teachers’ union has destroyed education. “Detroit has been the perfect laboratory for leftist policies at work for nearly half a century.” Tune in to hear more from Crowder in this edition of “Louder With Crowder” on PJTV.

A Recipe for Disaster

Mostly all actions have unanticipated consequences. But when government interjects legislation and regulation, that’s a surefire recipe for disaster. With that in mind, Reason TV presents “Greatest Moments in Unintended Consequences,” taking a closer look at the Osborne Reef, corn ethanol subsidies and Obamacare.
