Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Talking Drones and Privacy

Consumer journalist and investigative reporter John Stossel ponders a world where drones are mainstream. The tiny flying machines, equipped with a camera, can be bought as cheaply as $1,200, and are a boon to farmers and real-estate agents. But do they pose a serious problem of privacy when in devious hands? Stossel talks with Kentucky U.S. Senator Rand Paul and others about the pending dilemma in this edition of Liberty Pen.

Benghazi Back On Center Stage

Cheryl Atkinson, investigative reporter for the Daily Signal, is reporting that Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Ray Maxwell saw fellow State Department officials separating documents related to the Benghazi crisis to protect officials. These revelations from the latest government whistleblower has catapulted Benghazi and more charges of a cover-up back into the limelight. PJTV’s “Trifecta” crew of Stephen Green, Bill Whittle and Scott Ott join a lively discussion on the topic.

Democrats Face Sixth-Year Hex

History will tell you that the sixth-year Congressional elections for an incumbent political party spell disaster. The Obama Administation faces that calamity in November, when the likelihood of Democrats losing the United States Senate is a strong reality. Morris takes us on a stroll through history, dating back to the Woodrow Wilson Administration to prove his point in this edition of Dick Morris Reports.

Tie-Dyed Tyranny Modernized

During the first half of the 20th century, oppressive nations, such as Germany and Russia, once used secret police forces to make sure the masses were in compliance. “The Gestapo and NKVD used terror, murder and random arrests to make millions obey the will of the handful of those pulling the levers of power,” Bill Whittle says. The phenomenon, which Whittle calls Tie-Dyed Tyranny, has taken root under the guise of environmentalism in Washington State. Whittle explains in this edition of “Firewall” on Truth Revolt.

What Really Killed T-Rex?

True, a mega-asteroid was responsible for wiping out the dinosaurs 66 million years ago. But is there more to the story? SciShow’s Hank Green discusses evidence that suggests there were other factors percolating that turned a really bad day into one of the worst days in the history of the planet.

U.N. Fury Directed At Israel

Israel is a vibrant democracy, with a free press, independent judiciary and an array of full rights for its citizens. Yet, of 193 countries in the United Nations today, Israel has been singled out as the most egregious offender of the organization’s mandate to preserve and enhance human freedom and tolerance. Furthermore, 38 percent of the U.N.’s Human Rights Council resolutions that are critical of specific countries, have been directed at Israel alone. Why the vitriol from this international organization? Anne Bayefsky, director of the Touro Institute of Human Rights, presents the facts in this edition of Prager University.

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.
