Show 190 Michael Medved interviews author John C. Wohlstetter.36 min 8.4MB.

In a new book, The Long War Ahead And The Short War Upon Us, author John C. Wohlstetter outlines a frightening scenario of losing two wars with Islamic extremists and calls for a winner takes all battle against terror and barbarism. Wohlstetter describes a multi-dimensional war that will be almost impossible to win unless American changes its military and foreign policy strategies NOW.

Wohlstetter says that American's foreign policy decisions have led to a 'perfect storm' war scenario that could embroil the U.S. in a prolonged war that will threaten the security - and perhaps the survival - of generations to come.

The Long War Ahead And The Short War Upon Us is a must-read examination of America's war on terror that for the first time ever explains the battle from two perspectives- a Long War and a Short War. The Long War, refers to the atavistic barbarian adversaries who place no significance on life and use modern technologies in pursuit of their goal of annihilating modern societies. The Short War describes American's race to stop a Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) catastrophe. This book offers America a strategy for winning the war on terror. John Wohlstetter gets it right.

Show 187 The Enemy At Home The Cultural Left and Its Responsibility for 9/11. Michael Medved talks to Disesh D Souza. 37 minutes 8MB.  From THE ENEMY AT HOME- In this book I make a claim that will seem startling at the outset. The cultural left in this country is responsible for causing 9/11. … In faulting the cultural left, I am not making the absurd accusation that this group blew up the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. I am saying that the cultural left and its allies in Congress, the media, Hollywood, the nonprofit sector, and the universities are the primary cause of the volcano of anger toward America that is erupting from the Islamic world. The Muslims who carried out the 9/11 attacks were the product of this visceral rage—some of it based on legitimate concerns, some of it based on wrongful prejudice, but all of it fueled and encouraged by the cultural left. Thus without the cultural left, 9/11 would not have happened.

Show 186 Free to Choose 1980 PBS television mini series. Volume 9and 10 out of 10. Free To Choose® began as an award winning PBS television series featuring Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize-winning economist. Free To Choose was also a book written by Milton and Rose Friedman. It was the best selling non-fiction book of 1980. The book and TV series have been translated into over 2 dozen languages.

Free To Choose is about freedom, the interrelationship of personal, political and economic freedom. Free To Choose is about the ideas of Milton and Rose Friedman, ideas that still dominate public policy debates decades after they were first proposed. Free To Choose is about those who refined and continue to extend these ideas.

We’re pleased to provide you with an audio version of this 1980 PBS television series. Please view entire television series free at http://www.ideachannel.tv/  1 hr. 23 minutes  19MB

Volume 7 - Who Protects the Consumer?  (1980)
Various government agencies have been created on the claim that they will protect the consumer. These agencies restrict freedom, stifle beneficial innovation, and become agents for the industries or groups they are intended to regulate. Friedman explains how the apparent chaos of the market place, the competition of many suppliers for business, is the best protection of consumer interests. 

Volume 8 - Who Protects the Worker  (1980)
Unions sometimes protect some workers - their members - but usually at the expense of other workers. Government protects its employees and special groups of workers at the expense of other workers. Both unions and government restrict freedom. Friedman explains how the competition of employers for the talents of workers leads to the highest wages and best working conditions.

Volume 5 - Created Equal  (1980)
The Declaration of Independence says, “all men are created equal.? Friedman explains that this did not mean all persons should or will have equal talents or income. Equal opportunity to better one’s self, and the right to personally benefit from the gains realized, are consistent with freedom. Equality of results requires force. Taking from some to give to others destroys freedom and removes the incentive for creating new wealth. Friedman visits India, U.S. and Britain.

Volume 6 - What’s Wrong with our Schools  (1980)
Parental choice and parental responsibility in the education of children is the U.S. tradition and is consistent with a free society. Centralized government control has eroded freedom and adversely affected the quality of education. The poor help pay for education for the future rich. Friedman has long advocated using vouchers to solve the problem. He explains why. Friedman visits U.S. and Britain.

Volume 3 - Anatomy of Crisis  (1980)
The Great Depression has been popularly viewed as a failure of capitalism. The stock market crash, the failure of the Bank of the United States, loss of personal savings, were visible symbols supporting this belief. As Friedman explains, the real cause was the unseen failure of government policy and action. Yet this crisis resulting from government failure leads to decades of government expansion.

Volume 4 - From Cradle to Grave  (1980)
The welfare state arises from the attempt to do good with other people’s money. Such attempts always fail because: Nobody spends somebody else’s money as carefully as his own. Welfare is supply driven. Those spending the money use force to collect it and to insure those receiving it use it for “right? purposes. Good intentions are corrupted by bad means. Friedman visits U.S. and Britain.

Volume 1 - The Power of the Market  (1980)
America’s freedom and prosperity derive from the combination of the idea of human liberty in America’s Declaration of Independence with the idea of economic freedom in Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations. Friedman explains how markets and voluntary exchange organize activity and enable people to improve their lives. He also explains the price system. Friedman visits Hong Kong, U.S. and Scotland.

Volume 2 - The Tyranny of Control  (1980)
Government planning and detailed control of economic activity lessens productive innovation, and consumer choice. Good, better, best, are replaced by “approved�? or “authorized.�?

Show 181 Michael Medved talks to Stephen Baskerville, professor of government at Patrick Henry College. His new book is Taken into Custody: The War Against Fatherhood, Marriage, and the Family. See ACU show 162 for Dennis Pragers interview with author.

‘Taken into Custody’ exposes the greatest and most destructive civil rights abuse in America today. Family courts and Soviet-style bureaucracies trample basic civil liberties, entering homes uninvited and taking away people’s children at will, then throwing the parents into jail without any form of due process, much less a trial. No parent, no child, no family in America is safe. The legal industry does not want you to hear this story. Radical feminists, bar associations, and social work bureaucracies have colluded to suppress this information. Even “pro-family? groups and civil libertarians look the other way. Yet it is a reality for tens of millions of Americans who are our neighbors. 19 minutes 4.3MB

Show 180 On My Honor- Why the American Values of the Boy Scouts Are Worth Fighting for. Dennis Prager talks with Texas Governor Rick Perry. His latest book. Synopsis-

In On My Honor, Texas governor Rick Perry, through the legacy of the Boy Scouts of America, takes dead aim at the moral relativism of the secular humanist movement, indicting its corrosive impact on the culture. Examining the left's legal assaults on the Boy Scouts of America -- which span more than 30 years -- Perry offers prescient insight into the multi-faceted war, which pits the proponents of traditional American values against the radical leftist movement that seeks to tear down our social foundations.

On My Honor underscores the depth to which the culture warriors of the left will go to force their secular humanist minority view upon American society and revered American institutions. It is a revealing look at a culture war that rages close to the surface of American life, and it is a must read for any American concerned that our society is slipping from the high moral ground of liberty to the valley of license. 23 minutes 5.4MB

Show 179 The Nuclear Jihadist. 1 of 2. Hugh Hewitt talks to authors Douglas Frantz and Catherine Collins about A.Q. Khan and how we could have stopped him. 54 minutes 12MB

The world has entered a second nuclear age. For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the threat of nuclear annihilation is on the rise. Should such an assault occur, there is a strong likelihood that the trail of devastation will lead back to Abdul Qadeer Khan, the Pakistani father of the Islamic bomb and the mastermind behind a vast clandestine enterprise that has sold nuclear secrets to Iran, North Korea, and Libya.

Khan's loose-knit organization was and still may be a nuclear Wal-Mart, selling weapons blueprints, parts, and the expertise to assemble the works into a do-it-yourself bomb kit. Amazingly, American authorities could have halted his operation, but they chose instead to watch and wait. Khan proved that the international safeguards the world relied on no longer worked.

Journalists Douglas Frantz and Catherine Collins tell this alarming tale of international intrigue through the eyes of the European and American officials who suspected Khan, tracked him, and ultimately shut him down, but only after the nuclear genie was long out of the bottle.
