Ban the Box a Bad Idea

There’s a progressive movement afoot called Ban the Box that would give ex-felons a monumental lift when applyng for employment. Ban the Box legislation would rid employment applications of the box that asks if you’ve ever been arrested or convicted of a felony. “It’s the new offensive of the left to empower former inmates and even current inmates,” says political strategist Dick Morris. “They’ve gone too far with this.”

Liberals Give Terrorists a Pass

The lamestream media, and progressives in general, are in lockstep when it comes to solving the Islamic terrorist problem on the planet. While these thugs tear a brutal swath through the Middle East, Europe and Africa, liberals believe retaliating against these murderers will only radicalize their moderate home base. Political commentator Bill Whittle begs to differ in this stirring edition of “Afterburner” on PJTV.

Beware Of the John Doe Rule

Ever hear of the John Doe Rule? First there’s a mind-shattering SWAT raid, then an incomprehensible gag order. It’s a protection device for political prosecutors.But is it really tyranny in America. Investigative journalist John Stossel talks to victims, then interviews free speech advocate Mark Steyn in this edition of Liberty Pen.

Frankensteins of Missouri

The radical students of the University of Missouri have allegedly launched an attack against institutional racism. Wild Bill doesn’t buy it. “Left-wing educators have worked hard who would take down traditional America,” he says. “Now let’s see if this spreads to other campuses across the country. It would serve them right if it did. The America-hating left being eaten alive by their own monsters.”

The Obamacare Disaster

By any stretch, the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, has been an absolute disaster. And now word comes that the penalties Americans have to pay for not signing up for healthcare are soaring, in some cases running twice as high as originally expected. “These penalties are to buy insurance that most people don’t need,” political commentator Dick Morris says. “It’s to cover illnesses that are hypothetical.” He explains further in this edition of Dick Morris Reports.

The Demise Of Liberal Arts

A degree in liberal arts tradtionally offered a balanced curriculum featuring the great works of the Western artists–Shakespeare, Mozart, Eliot. Not anymore. Today’s same degree stresses Western racism, sexism, imperialism and other ills and sins that reinforce a sense of victimhood and narcissism. The Manhattan Institute’s Heather Mac Donald laments the shift, saying, “The modern professorate repudiated the great humanist tradition on which much of Western civilization and the Western university has been built.” So what happened? Mac Donald explains in this edition of Prager University.

Riding the Trump Train

If it’s Intellectual Froglegs, you can be assured that Joe Dan Gorman is pummeling liberals. In this edition, Gorman chastises the lamestream media for dissing the candidacy of rising star Dr. Ben Carson, takes on the climate change fanatics and unabashedly reasserts, “I’m on the Trump Train.” Says Gorman, “I believe the man’s sincere and he clearly loves America. And you know what, the man tells the truth. It might come out clunky or socially insensitive, but but you know he’s telling the truth.”

We’re Mad As Hell …

When “the new” GOP ran away with the midterm elections in 2014, ceasing control of Congress, the electorate rejoiced. Finally, some formidable opposition to the corrupt leftist regime of President Obama and his cronies. But what happened? The GOP-controlled House and the Senate have capitulated to President Destruct-O’s every wish by funding the Iran Nuke Deal, Planned Parenthood, executive amnesty and Obamacare. But guess what, asks political commentator Joe Dan Gorman, “a conservative revolt is brewing.” In the immortal silver screen rant of Howard Beale in the 1976 film Network: “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore.” Join Gorman as he lauds the exploits of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, among others still fighting for the conservative base, in this moving edition of Intellectual Froglegs.

The Plight of Syrian Refugees

The plight of the Syrian refugee crisis is growing and is bound to worsen. The rampage is the product of a failed attemt by Syrian activists to topple the Al-Assad regime during the Arab Spring. The result was unprecedented civil war among religious and ethnic factions and the tragic massacre of many. The Syrian population was trapped between the regime, rebel groups and religious extremists. Nearly one third of its population was displaced within the country, while another 4 million have fled. So do we act with humanity and reason, or shut down our borders? Video blog In a Nutshell presents the potential problems arising from the crisis and some solutions. Digest the presentation, and you be the judge.

The Wrong Side Of History

If you opposed the recent Supreme Court decision to legalize gay marriage, you were on the wrong side of history. Opposing the legalization of marijuana branded you as stuck in the past. According to whom, you ask? President Obama, of course, who’s also tossed out the term, “the right side of history,” with abandon. Obama has flirted with these Marxist terms throughout his six-plus years in the White House, but is there really a wrong side and right side? “What unites both terms is arrogance and cowardice,” says nationally syndicated columnist and best-selling author Jonah Goldberg. “The notion that history is moving in an inevitable direction is ancient. But in modern times it’s main champion is Karl Marx.” In this edition of Prager University, Goldberg explains further, including why the terms have different meanings domestically and abroad.
