The “Green New Deal”; unicorns and rainbows

The “Green New Deal”, put out by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey, tips the hand of the Democratic party as one that is about as full of vision as a 6-year-old is; it’s more “ice cream and never-ending summer vacation” than it is a considered proposal.

This time out, I explain why this is such an awful proposal.

Lit up to celebrate death

I’m just covering 1 topic this time out. New York state recently passed a new abortion law that allows for late-term abortion throughout the third trimester.

I posted this disapprovingly on the Facebook group, and listener Steve wanted me to prove my contention that this is essentially abortion for any reason at any time. This, then, is my reasoning. Look at history and the law, and you can’t really say otherwise.

Beware the 1-sided story

What were the lessons we should all take from the coverage of the Covington High School teens and Native American Nathan Phillips? Have we actually learned them? Will this change how news is reported?

And I have a “Name That Quote” segment again. It’s been gone for a while, but it’s back! For this quote, you may want to prepare yourself if it surprises you as much as it did me.

“Weaponizing” a government shutdown

This time out, I have 2 stories both suggested by listeners.

Brandon had some questions about the current government shutdown and how it compares with previous ones.

And Phil wanted to let me know of a bill that will take power away from unelected bureaucrats and give it back to our representatives in Congress.

“Free” health care for NYC?

Listener Barb sent me an article showing that the IRS, as tireless as they are collecting money, seems to be asleep when it comes to giving out your tax money to illegal immigrants.

New York City is going to try an experiment with “free” health care. That doesn’t seem very surprising. What is surprising is what they predict it will cost.

And listener “OhioHistorian” has an opinion on my story on the Scouts BSA from last episode.

Episode 238: Bankrupt BSA / Operation Choke Point

BSA in trouble

Returning from my Christmas break, I have 4(!) stories to cover this time out.

The Scouts BSA (formerly the Boy Scouts of America) may be declaring bankruptcy. Could this financial situation have been prevented? I think so.

There’s a crackdown on illegal immigration on the southern border. Old news? Not really.

How much of federal government spending is on auto-pilot? How much just get automatically renewed, with built in increased, every year? The answer will surprise you. It surprised me.

Can bank regulators just cut off certain businesses’ access to the banking system? Yes, and you can thank Obama for that.

Telling a great story

Is it OK to rape if the culture you come from has normalized it?

Why is Havana crumbling? What are the costs, and is it affecting their great (according to Michael Moore) health care?

And is depicting bullying necessary when telling an anti-bullying story? Some people don’t think so. Let’s let Rudolph demonstrate why it is. Merry Christmas!

Episode 236: Interview with Brian Kilmeade

Brian Kilmeade

I had the honor to interview Brian Kilmeade, of Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends”. He has a book out called, “Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans: The Battle That Shaped America’s Destiny”.

It revolves around the last battle of the War of 1812, how Jackson won that battle, some miraculous aspects of it, and some of Jackson’s background, including how he came from very humble roots to become an American congressman and President, as well as a war hero.

I also asked Brian some questions about current events.

You can buy his book at his own website or on Amazon.
