College Profs Lean Left

A recent study concluded that higher education is politically liberal–by a landslide. No surprise here. College professors have been indoctrinating our children with leftist rhetoric for decades. Amazingly, says Matthew Woessner, professor of political science and philosophy at Penn State University, the liberal bias does not appear to affect conservative students, but it definitely is hindering liberal students. Check out the professor as he analyzes the study and uncovers more surprising facts in this edition of Prager University.

Defining Truth

PJTV gurus Andrew Klavan and Bill Whittle define the ever-absorbing question that has befuddled mankind: What is the truth? Listen in as each gets a bit philosophical in their responses.

Buried in Litigation

“Everything lawyers do takes too long” is consumer reporter John Stossel’s postscript to his personal opinion of the legal system in America. “We need law and lawyers to keep the peace,” he says. “But you should avoid using them.” Tune in to this edition of Liberty Pen as Stossel explains how the only benefactors in our legal system are lawyers.

The War On Work

I hate to be Captain Obvious here, but the absolute road out of poverty is work. But that simple formula just isn’t working (no pun intended). Since President Johnson declared the War on Poverty nearly 50 years ago, the federal government has spent trillions trying to improve conditions to no avail. We are no better off today than we were in 1965, says Cato Institute social economist Michael Tanner. “Truth is,” he says, “the War on Poverty is actually a War on Work. It has both discouraged work and ensnared people in hardship.” In this episode of Prager University, Tanner explains why work is the only answer.

As the World Burns

Once upon a time, Democrats didn’t hate America. Nowadays, they malign our country at every opportunity, their insults pelting the landscape like a monsoon. Joe Dan Gorman calls it the Sabotaging of America. “Every aspect of America has gotten worse,” he says. “Our economy, our security, our border, our healthcare. Go down the list. And we better get back to theJudeo-Christian values that our Constitution was built on.” Gorman explains further on this edition of Intellectual Froglegs.

War Will Be a Distant Memory

Although war across the planet is dominating the headlines, the reality is that the 21st century has been the most peaceful one to date. In this edition of Vox, political commentator Zack Beauchamp says there are three big reasons why war is going away. Listen in as Beauchamp lays out the evidence and explains.

Peace Through Strength

With America’s foreign policy seemingly challenged on all fronts in recent months, we come full circle to the lingering question: Why must our military maintain its dominance? In this edition of Prager University, renowned British historian Andrew Roberts tackles the consequences of a weak America versus a strong America and what each means to peace and prosperity in our world.

America Needs a Challenge

On a pleasantly warm afternoon at Rice University in Houston in 1962, our youthful, brash president challenged America. President John F. Kennedy laid out the country’s plan to put a man on the moon. “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the others things, not because they are easy but because they are hard,” he said. That was 52 years ago. Where have the challenges gone and what do we strive for today? PJTV’s, Bill Whittle says, “Nothing we do is audacious anymore. Everything we hear from this president (Obama), and to be fair, for many, many years before he arrived, is hectoring and prissy and trivial and beneath us.” Check out this edition of “Afterburner” as Whittle eloquently dishes out a mix of passion and intellect.

Good Values vs. Feelings

Radio talk show host and author Dennis Prager analyzes the age-old question: What is the most important thing in life? Most of our answers fall into three categories–love, money and happiness. Prager contends all three of these things are crucial components in one’s lifetime, but not at the top of the heap. Prager suggests the most important thing in your life are good values. “Values are what you consider to be more important than anything else,” Prager says. “And above all, values are what you consider to be more important than your feelings.” He elaborates in this edition of Prager University.

Time’s Up for Racism

Wild Bill dazzled a captive crowd at Gettysburg over the weekend at an event hosted by Harlem Mayor Dr. James David Manning. Wild Bill’s theme? Racial conciliation. Tune in as Wild Bill tells the crowd it’s time to finish racism in America.
