Court Ponder Major Decisions

Thursday should bring two major U.S. Supreme Court rulings on the future of Obamacare and gay rights. Rejection of either by the court may throw the country into chaos and bring legal pandemonium, says Ed Berliner, host of “The Hard Line” on Newsmax. George Mason University professor of law, F.H. Buckley, disagrees. “That’s just nonsense,” Buckley says. “I think that by defeat they mean turning it over to the states, that’s the best possible outcome. I think that’s an outcome that would dial back the culture wars and we really need that. We need to really lower the temperature a whole lot and that would do it.” Tune in as Buckley elaborates.

Keep Hinckley Jailed

Madman John Hinckley stunned the nation 34 years ago, when he shot President Reagan and White House Press Secretary James Brady in a brazen assassination attempt. Fortunately for America, Reagan survived the attack. Brady also survived, but was permanently disabled for the rest of his life. Hinckley, as you may remember, was found not guilty by reason of insanity and put away in a mental institution. Now comes the news that this miscreant has been awarded 17 days of freedom a month and his lawyers are asking for more! Host Joe Concha of the “Daily Wrap” on Newsmax TV welcomes Rabbi Brad Hirschfield, senior fellow with Freedom Works Tom Borelli, Democratic strategist Rick Ungar for a lively debate on the sensitive issue.

Debunking the Black Myth

Ferguson, Missouri, resident Jonathan Gentry takes rioters, protestors and faux civil rights activists to task on YouTube in the aftermath of the tragic shooting last week that left teen-ager Michael Brown dead. Newmax’s Steve Malzberg, who interviewed Gentry earlier on his show, comments on clips from the YouTube post in this edition of “The Steve Malzberg Show.” The video is riveting and hard-hitting as Gentry destroys the myth of black victimization in our inner cities.

An Imperial Presidency?

During a recent press conference, Captain Destruct-O, aka President Obama, again telegraphed his intention to act on the immigration crisis facing our country, with or without the help of Congress. In short, he would wave the magic wand of amnesty to millions of illegal aliens already living in the United States and for hundreds of thousands still migrating here. It makes not a bit of difference to Obama that the majority of the country opposes any such action, that such an executive order would further sting our economy and that his actions are downright constitutionally illegal. Former presidential candidate and senior advisor to President Nixon Patrick Buchanan discusses the border crisis with Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg on The Steve Malzberg Show.

Paul Rodriguez KOs CNN

Steve Malzberg, host of Newsmax’s “Give Me 5,”  focuses on the immigration crisis on our southern border, where more than 50,000 children from Central America have spilled into our country, many of them sans parents. Malzberg says the media discourse on the issue took an unexpected turn when conservative comedian Paul Rodriguez frustrated CNN commentator Don Lemon. Lemon, who asked Rodriguez why our nation is so divided on the issue, was visibly stunned when he didn’t get the answer he expected. “I don’t think we are divided,” said Rodriguez, who is Mexican-American. “I think America has its heart in the right place. We need to be compassionate, we need to be strong and enforce our laws. It is precisely why we need to make it clear to these countries that regardless of the obvious trauma that they’re going through, we have to set laws and let them know that it’s not the land of milk and honey.” Listen to the conclusion as Lemon responds.

Rate Masks Economy’s Health

The country’s unemployment rate dropped to 7.3 percent, its lowest level in five years, despite the lowest workforce participation in 35 years. Former U.S. Congressman, Allen West, talks to Newsmax TV’s financial anchor David Nelson about the anomaly in this edition of The Steve Malzberg Show.

Questions Linger Over Attack

New York Congressman Peter King says it’s premature to rule out possible Al-Qaeda involvement in the Boston Marathon bombings. In an interview on The Steve Malberg Show, King also says that despite contradictory reports, he still harbors suspicions about the Saudi national observed running from the scene of the bombings. King is a member of the House Homeland Security Committee.

The Media’s Stone-Cold Silence

Former New York Times reporter Judith Miller. who spent 85 days in jail in 2009 for refusing to reveal her source in the Valerie Plame CIA affair, tells NewsmaxTV’s Steve Malzberg that she is shocked by the lack of outrage by the journalistic community over the potential jailing of reporter Jana Winter, who refuses to reveal her sources in the James Holmes Aurora theater massacre. She says it would be a different story if Winter didn’t work for Fox News.

Tax Hikes Could Stall Economy

Stephen Moore, senior economics writer for The Wall Street Journal, cautions against raising taxes given the fragile state of the economy and sluggish signs of growth. He tells Newsmax that further slippage could thrust America into a double-dip recession, with disastrous consequences.

2016 More Relevant Now

Dinesh D’Souza, filmmaker of the documentary 2016: Obama’s America, says the work is even more relevant now that President Obama has won re-election. While it’s too early to say if the most dire predictions in the film will come true, D’Souza says he’s troubled with two recent developments: 1. Obama scheduling a trip to Russia, presumably to discuss dismantling America’s nuclear defenses 2. The continued rise in Muslim militancy around the world. He discusses these issues with Newsmax.
