Show 177 Comeback: Conservatism That Can Win Again. Michael Medved talks with author David Frum. About this book. At a moment of crisis and pessimism for American conservatives, David Frum offers fresh ideas—and fresh hope.
Not in a generation has conservatism been in as much trouble as it is at the end of the Bush years. A majority of Americans say the country is “on the wrong track.? Voters prefer Democrats over Republicans on almost every issue, including taxes. The married, the middle-class, the native-born are dwindling as a share of the population, while Democratic blocs are rising. A generation of young people has turned its back on the Republican party.
Too many conservatives and Republicans have shut their eyes to negative trends. David Frum offers answers.
Frum says that the ideas that won elections for conservatives in the 1980s have done their job. Republicans can no longer win elections on taxes, guns, and promises to restore traditional values. It’s time now for a new approach, including:
A conservative commitment to make private-sector health insurance available to every American
Lower taxes on savings and investment financed by higher taxes on energy and pollution
Federal policies to encourage larger families
Major reductions in unskilled immigration
A genuinely compassionate conservatism, including a conservative campaign for prison reform and government action against the public health disaster of obesity
A new conservative environmentalism that promotes nuclear power in place of coal and oil
Higher ethical standards inside the conservative movement and the Republican party
A renewed commitment to expand and rebuild the armed forces of the United States—to crush terrorism—and get ready for the coming challenge from China

Frum’s previous bestselling books have earned accolades for their courage and creativity from liberals and conservatives alike. Today, with the conservative movement and the Republican Party facing their greatest danger since Watergate, Frum has again stepped forward with new ideas to take conservatism—and America—into a new century of greatness.

 Show 176 Wrong on Race- The Democratic Partys Buried Past. Medved talks to Author.  37 minutes  8.5MB

In Wrong on Race, Bruce Bartlett sets the record straight on a hidden past that many Democrats would rather see swept under the carpet. Ranging from the founding of the Republic through to today, it rectifies the unfair perceptions of America's two national parties. While Nixon"s infamous "Southern Strategy? is constantly referenced in the media, less well remembered are Woodrow Wilson’s segregation of the entire Federal civil service; FDR’s appointment of a member of the KKK to the Supreme Court; John F. Kennedy’s apathy towards civil rights legislation;  and the ascension of Robert Byrd, who is current President pro tempore of the Senate, third in line in the presidential line of succession, and a former member of the KKK.
For the last seventy years, African Americans have voted en masse for one party, with little in the end to show for it. Is it time for the pendulum to swing the other way? With the Republican Party furiously engaged in pre-2008 soul searching, this exhaustively researched, incisively written exposé will be an important and compelling component of that debate as we head towards November. Author Bio- Bruce Bartlett has had a nationally syndicated newspaper column for the last ten years, and has written for The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Commentary, The National Review, and Fortune. He was a domestic policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan and a treasury official under President George H.W. Bush.

Show 169 Michael Medved interviews author of Faith, Reason and the War Against Jihadism. Synopsis- Provocative and essential reading for those who would understand the religious convictions and passions that fuel Islamic jihadism—and what is needed to confront it
A bracing manifesto that urges all Americans—those who would lead the United States and those who will elect those leaders—to recognize and confront the religious convictions and passions that fuel Islamic jihadism, to understand—to really understand—its theological sources and ideological roots, and to take its global vision of the human future with the seriousness this challenge requires. Faith, Reason, and the War Against Jihadism offers fifteen bold prescriptions for meeting the threat of jihadist terrorism. Weigel sounds a clarion call for the reform of U.S. foreign and military policy in light of the lessons America should have learned from 9/11, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the grave threat of a nuclear-armed Iran. On the far side of the dangers of global jihadism, George Weigel argues, is the brighter prospect of a world capable of genuine pluralism: a world in which freedom, while never free, is not in retreat, but is poised once again at the cutting edge of history, and is the foundation of peaceful society. Provocative and essential reading for the 2008 election season, Faith, Reason, and the War Against Jihadism is a sobering analysis of the perilous years ahead.

 Some lessons titles are:

1) The great human questions, including the great questions of public life, are ultimately theological.
2) To speak of Judaism, Christianity and Islam as the three Abrahamic faiths, the three religions of
the Book, or the three monotheisms obscures rather than illuminates. These familiar tropes ought to be retired.
3) Jihadism is the enemy in the multifront war that has been declared upon us.
4) Jihadism has a complex intellectual history, the chief points of which must be grasped in order to
understand the nature of the threat it poses to the West.
5) Jihadists read history and politics through the prism of their distinctive theological convictions, not through the lens of western assumptions about the progressive dynamic of history.
6) It is not Islamophobic to note the historical connection between conquest and Muslim expansion or between contemporary jihadism and terrorism. Truth telling is the essential pre-requisite to genuine interreligious dialogue, which can only be based on the claims of reason.
7) The war against Jihadism is a contest for the human future that will endure for generations.
8) Genuine Realism in foreign policy takes wickedness seriously, yet avoids premature closure in its thinking about the possibilities of positive change in world politics.
