Show 337  Makers and Takers: Why Conservatives Work Harder, Feel Happier, Have Closer Families, Take Fewer Drugs, Give More Generously, Value Honesty More, Are Less materialistic and envious, whine less... and Even Hug Their Children More Than Liberals. By Peter Sweizer

Selection of Audio Book. This is a must have in your Conservative library. Buy this book! We highly recommend it.

Conservatives are ignorant, selfish, and hypocritical. Liberals are enlightened, generous, and honest. Or so we've been told for. . . oh, the last three generations or so. But now comes compelling new evidence that these popular stereotypes are not only false, they're the near opposites of the truth.

 Synopsis-  In Makers and Takers you will discover why:

 * Seventy-one percent of conservatives say you have an obligation to care for a seriously injured spouse or parent versus less than half (46 percent) of liberals.

 * Conservatives have a better work ethic and are much less likely to call in sick than their liberal counterparts.

 * Liberals are 2½ times more likely to be resentful of others' success and 50 percent more likely to be jealous of other people"s good luck.

 * Liberals are 2 times more likely to say it is okay to cheat the government out of welfare money you don't deserve.

 * Conservatives are more likely than liberals to hug their children and "significantly more likely” to display positive nurturing emotions.

 * Liberals are less trusting of family members and much less likely to stay in touch with their parents.

 * Do you get satisfaction from putting someone else"s happiness ahead of your own? Fifty-five percent of conservatives said yes versus only 20 percent of liberals.

 * Rush Limbaugh, Ronald Reagan, Bill O’Reilly and Dick Cheney have given large sums of money to people in need, while Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, Michael Moore, and Al Gore have not.

* Those who are "very liberal” are 3 times more likely than conservatives to throw things when they get angry.

 The American left prides itself on being superior to conservatives: more generous, less materialistic, more tolerant, more intellectual, and more selfless. For years scholars have constructed—and the media has pushed—elaborate theories designed to demonstrate that conservativessuffer from a host of personality defects and character flaws. According to these supposedly unbiased studies, conservatives are mean-spirited, greedy, selfish malcontents with authoritarian tendencies. Far from the belief of a few cranks, prominent liberals from John Kenneth Galbraith to Hillary Clinton have succumbed to these prejudices. But what do the facts show?

 Peter Schweizer has dug deep—through tax documents, scholarly data, primary opinion research surveys, and private records—and has discovered that these claims are a myth. Indeed, he shows that many of these claims actually apply more to liberals than conservatives. Much as he did in his bestseller Do as I Say (Not as I Do), he brings to light never-before-revealed facts that will upset conventional wisdom.

 Conservatives such as Ronald Reagan and Robert Bork have long argued that liberal policies promote social decay. Schweizer, using the latest data and research, exposes how, in general:

 * Liberals are more self-centered than conservatives.

* Conservatives are more generous and charitable than liberals.

* Liberals are more envious and less hardworking than conservatives.

* Conservatives value truth more than liberals, and are less prone to cheating and lying.

* Liberals are more angry than conservatives.

* Conservatives are actually more knowledgeable than liberals.

* Liberals are more dissatisfied and unhappy than conservatives.

 Schweizer argues that the failure lies in modern liberal ideas, which foster a self-centered, “if it feels good do it” attitude that leads liberals to outsource their responsibilities to the government and focus instead on themselves and their own desires.

New York Times best-selling author Peter Schweizer destroys popular notions that liberals give more to charity, care more about others, and are happier than conservatives.

Show 334 The Next 100 Years. Medved interviews author George Friedman.  A Forecast for the 21st Century.  36 minutes 8MB

ABOUT THIS BOOK- "Conventional analysis suffers from a profound failure of imagination. It imagines passing clouds to be permanent and is blind to powerful, long-term shifts taking place in full view of the world.” —George Friedman

In his long-awaited and provocative new book, George Friedman turns his eye on the future—offering a lucid, highly readable forecast of the changes we can expect around the world during the twenty-first century. He explains where and why future wars will erupt (and how they will be fought), which nations will gain and lose economic and political power, and how new technologies and cultural trends will alter the way we live in the new century.
The Next 100 Years draws on a fascinating exploration of history and geopolitical patterns dating back hundreds of years. Friedman shows that we are now, for the first time in half a millennium, at the dawn of a new era—with changes in store, including:

• The U.S.-Jihadist war will conclude—replaced by a second full-blown cold war with Russia.
• China will undergo a major extended internal crisis, and Mexico will emerge as an important world power.
• A new global war will unfold toward the middle of the century between the United States and an unexpected coalition from Eastern Europe, Eurasia, and the Far East; but armies will be much smaller and wars will be less deadly.
• Technology will focus on space—both for major military uses and for a dramatic new energy resource that will have radical environmental implications.
• The United States will experience a Golden Age in the second half of the century.

Written with the keen insight and thoughtful analysis that has made George Friedman a renowned expert in geopolitics and forecasting, The Next 100 Years presents a fascinating picture of what lies ahead.

Show 333 Speechless- Silencing the Christians. Audio version of Banned Documentary. Two TV stations, WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids, MI and WSYX-TV in Columbus, OH, have banned this  television special showing how the media is silencing Christians. The stations bowed to the demands of a handful of homosexual activists and banned the showing of our TV special "Speechless...Silencing the Christians." The one-hour TV special was scheduled to be shown on the stations, but the stations yanked the program after agreeing to run it. AFA was paying for the time. 57 minutes 13MB

Oddly enough, the TV special shows how the media censors Christians, which is exactly what these two stations did!

They said the program was "controversial." The stations do not consider showing two lesbians or two homosexuals kissing or getting into bed with each other controversial. The stations do not consider all the profanity they air controversial. They regularly show network programs advocating the homosexual agenda, but those programs are not considered controversial. However, a special showing of Christians being silenced is controversial!

The manager of the Columbus station told AFA the station would not air the program because telling the truth about homosexuality did not represent "positive Christianity." Are we moving to a time in the near future when local pastors whose services are broadcast will be banned because their sermons call the practice of homosexuality a sin?

Please, forward this critical message to your family and friends today!

Show 332 John Stossel Goes to Washington and turns the idea of "consumer reporting" on government itself. We are all consumers of government services, so why not ask if things can be done better? Stossel starts by taking a look at taxes and learns Americans pay more in taxes than in food, clothing and shelter combined. Stossel's investigation finds some federal programs have trouble even keeping track of their funds, much less spending them wisely. How can students make sense of government spending and special interest influence on policies and priorities.?

Show 327 Blacklisted by History. Why everything liberals want you to believe about Senator Joe McCarthy and the "McCarthy era" is false

Blacklisted by History by M. Stanton Evans

In standard histories of the so-called "Red Scare" of the 1950s, Sen. Joe McCarthy (R-Wis.) is depicted as a lying bully who falsely named helpless victims in the U.S. State Department and other government bureaus as Communists or Soviet agents. Lying and baseless charges of subversion were the supposed essence of McCarthy's method. History has judged him such a loathsome figure that to this day, some fifty years after the Army-McCarthy hearings, people hurl the term "McCarthyism" to attack any perceived witch-hunt. But now, in Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy, veteran journalist M. Stanton Evans shows not only that this portrayal of McCarthy and his cases is mistaken -- but that virtually everything else that we've been told about McCarthy and his "era" is false.

Evans has spent more than a decade researching this book -- poring over vast amounts of data that were unknown to the American public in the 1950s and that corroborate the case McCarthy was making then. Indeed, many of those people McCarthy named as Communists show up in the official records that were suppressed at the time -- and yet most of these individuals are still regarded as McCarthy's victims. And, while McCarthy is often accused of being a liar, Blacklisted by History exposes how the senator's opponents were covering up or even actively falsifying the factual record, and in some cases lying to the public.

Relying almost exclusively on primary source documents buried in U.S. government archives -- including troves of previously unexamined FBI files, formerly missing State Department records, telephone intercepts, and heretofore unknown data from congressional investigations - M. Stanton Evans has unearthed the hidden history of America's backstage Cold War. His astonishing findings reveal that McCarthy understood, far better than his opponents cared to admit, the insidious forces that posed a very real threat to American society and institutions.

Among the revelations in this ground-breaking book:

Previously secret government records proving there was massive penetration of the federal government by Communists and Soviet agents, beginning in the Depression - long before McCarthy came on the scene

 Complete lists of McCarthy early cases -- most never previously published -and how his charges are supported by the archives of the FBI, the so-called Venona decrypts monitoring contacts between the Soviets and their agents, and other official records

 What long-secret FBI files reveal about McCarthy's foremost early target, Prof. Owen Lattimore of the Office of War Information and Institute of Pacific Relations

The famous case of Annie Lee Moss--the most notorious of all McCarthy cases -- and how the truth about it was concealed for 50 years (and still is in histories of the era)

The pro-Soviet stance of State Department official Dean Acheson in 1945 when he assumed a dominant role in the department -- quite different from his later Cold War image -- and the consequences for security and policy measures then adopted FBI reports about Communists and Soviet agents on federal payrolls -- among them such later well-known figures as J. Robert Oppenheimer, Alger Hiss, Treasury staffer Harry Dexter White, and White House assistant Lauchlin Currie

 How, though top officials were informed as early as December 1942 that J. Robert Oppenheimer was considered by Communist leaders to be a secret member of the party, nothing was done about the case for upwards of a decade

 The massive cover-up, conducted by White House and Department of Justice officials, of the espionage case of diplomat John Stewart service and the pro-Communist magazine Amerasia -- and how it became one of McCarthy's principal early cases

 Systematic high-level efforts to cover up the facts about other McCarthy cases -- included a sweeping secrecy order issued by President Truman in March 1948, a still more extensive order by President Eisenhower in May 1954

 How the Washington Post and New York Times loudly supported "executive privilege" and presidential secrecy measures -- as long as they were directed against McCarthy

 How Truman forces sought, in the 1948 showdown between Soviet agent Alger Hiss and ex-Communist witness Whittaker Chambers to discredit and indict, not Hiss, but Chambers

 The extensive backstage collusion between the State Department and the Tydings committee supposedly investigating McCarthy's charges -- plus concealment efforts including 35 pages of disappearing transcript

Still other disappearing records -- including numerous key documents from the National Archives and other official data sources -- many of which were recovered by the author

 How Soviet secret agents and pro-Red forces conspired on a global basis to make sure Japan attacked America -- not Russia -- in the 1941 run-up to Pearl Harbor

 High-level orders issued during World War II to ensure that Communists and fellow travelers got official jobs, then were protected from anti-Red security investigations

 How secret Communist agents in U.S. and British governments concocted false "intelligence" to discredit and destroy anti-Communist leaders in Yugoslavia and China -- and in both cases, tragically, succeeded

 Top-level official U.S. efforts during World War II to plot the assassination of the anti-Communist Chinese leader Chiang Kai-shek, then sponsor a military coup d'etat against him when he sought refuge on Taiwan

What McCarthy did -- and didn't -- say in his famous 1950 speech at Wheeling, W. Va., launching the "McCarthy era" -- and how the standard histories distort this

The "recording" of Joe McCarthy's speech at Wheeling Senator Millard Tydings professed to have -- but then admitted under oath he didn't

 The untold story of Joe Welch assistant Frederick Fisher, allegedly "outed" by Joe McCarthy, in fact outed by Welch himself six weeks before this historic confrontation

 How the so-called Gillette committee set out to discredit McCarthy by suppressing an official report that backed up McCarthy and refusing to print McCarthy's testimony before the panel

How McCarthy's refusal to cooperate with this committee became the only count of 46 originally brought against him in the Watkins hearings of 1954 for which McCarthy would be censured by the Senate

A groundbreaking book based on exhaustive research, Blacklisted by History is much more than a look at the McCarthy era -- it is revealing investigation into how our view of history can so often be distorted.

Show 325 New Deal or Raw Deal? Learning From the New Deal: How FDR's Economic Legacy has Damaged America. Date: December 11, 2008 Speaker: Dr. Burton Folsom, Jr. Charles F. Kline Chair in History and Management, Hillsdale College

Host(s): Joseph Postell Deputy Director, B. Kenneth Simon Center for American Studies, The Heritage Foundation Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

Elected on a buoyant tide of promises to balance the increasingly uncontrollable national budget and reduce the catastrophic unemployment rate, the charismatic President instead made dramatic changes to federal programming that directly contradicted his campaign promises.  Price fixing, court packing and regressive taxes were all hidden in the alphabet soup of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal.  These programs increased the financial strain on many and discouraged entrepreneurs from taking business risks that could have revived the national economy.  The New Deal survives in the form of many current government programs such as farm subsidies, minimum wage laws and welfare programs. 

Roosevelt's imperious approach to the presidency changed American politics forever, and as he manipulated public opinion, American citizens became unwitting accomplices to the stilted economic growth of the 1930s.  All these years later, America still struggles with the damaging repercussions of FDR"s legacy.

Dr. Burton Folsom Jr. holds the Charles F. Kline Chair in History and Management at Hillsdale College.  He has been a Senior Fellow in Economic Education and Economic History for the Mackinac Center for Public Policy and serves as Senior Historian at the Foundation for Economic Education.  He is the author of several books including The Myth of the Robber Barons, now in its fifth edition, Empire Builders, and Urban Capitalists.  His latest book, New Deal or Raw Deal?, is available through Simon and Schuster Publishers

Show 323 Mark Taylor is joined by Stephen Moore the author of The End of Prosperity. Monday, January 26, 2009

Synopsis- Arthur Laffer -- the father of supply-side economics and a member of President Reagan's Economic Policy Advisory Board -- joins economist Stephen Moore of The Wall Street Journal editorial board and investment advisor Peter J. Tanous to send Americans an urgent message: We risk losing the exceptional standard of living that has made us the envy of the rest of the world if the pro-growth policies of the last twenty-five years are reversed by a new president.

 Since the early 1980s, the United States has experienced a wave of prosperity almost unprecedented in history in terms of wealth creation, new jobs, and improved living standards for all. Under the leadership of Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, Americans changed the incentive structure on taxes, inflation, and regulation, and as a result the economy roared back to life after the anti-growth, high-inflation 1970s.

 Now the rest of the world is following the American economic growth model of lower tax rates, more economic freedom, and sound money. Paradoxically, one country is moving away from these growth policies and putting its prosperity at risk -- America.

 On the eve of a critical presidential election, Laffer, Moore, and Tanous provide the factual information every American needs in order to understand exactly how we achieved the prosperity many people have come to take for granted, and explain how the policies of Democrats Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Nancy Pelosi can cause America to lose its status as the world's growth and job creation machine.

 The End of Prosperity is essential reading for all Americans who value our nation's free enterprise system and high standard of living, and want to know how to protect their own investments in the coming storm

Show 321 True Believer: Inside the Investigation and Capture of Ana Montes, Cuba's Master Spy by Scott W. Carmichael (Author). Speech before the Heritage Foundation.

 Product Description- Ana Montes appeared to be a model employee of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). Known to her coworkers as the Queen of Cuba, she was an overachiever who advanced quickly through the ranks of Latin American specialists to become the intelligence community's top analyst on Cuban affairs. But throughout her sixteen-year career at DIA, Montes sent Castro some of America's most closely guarded secrets and at the same time influenced what the United States thought it knew about Cuba. When she was finally arrested in September 2001, she became the most senior American intelligence official ever accused of operating as a Cuban spy from within the federal government. Unrepentant as she serves out her time in a federal prison in Texas, Montes remains the only member of the intelligence community ever convicted of espionage on behalf of the Cuban government.

This inside account of the investigation that led to her arrest was written by Scott W. Carmichael, the DIA's senior counterintelligence investigator who persuaded the FBI to delve deeper into Montes activities. Although Montes did not fit the FBI's profile of a spy and easily managed to defeat the agency's polygraph exam, Carmichael became suspicious of her activities and, with the FBI, over a period of several years developed a solid case against her. Here he tells the story of that long and ultimately successful spy hunt. Carmichael reveals the details of their efforts to bring her to justice, offering readers a front-row seat for the first major U.S. espionage case of the twenty-first century. She was arrested less than twenty-four hours before learning details of the U.S. plan to invade Afghanistan post-September 11. Motivated by ideology and not money, Montes was one of the last "true believers" of the Communist era. Because her arrest came just ten days after 9/11, it went largely unnoticed by the American public. This book calls attention to the grave damage Montes inflicted on U.S. security--Carmichael even implicates her in the death of a Green Beret fighting Cuban-backed insurgent in El Salvador and the damage she would have continued to inflict had she not been caught.

Show 320 Michael Medved talks to Jonathan Schanzer, author of Hamas vs Fatah: The Struggle for Palestine. 38 minutes 8.7MB

 From the book-  In June 2007 civil war broke out in the Gaza Strip between two rival Palestinian factions, Hamas and Fatah. Western peace efforts in the region always focused on reconciling two opposing fronts: Israel and Palestine. Now, this careful exploration of Middle East history over the last two decades reveals that the Palestinians have long been a house divided. What began as a political rivalry between Fatah’s Yasir Arafat and Hamas leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin during the first intifada of 1987 evolved into a full-blown battle on the streets of Gaza between the forces of Arafat’s successor, Mahmoud Abbas, and Ismael Haniyeh, one of Yassin’s early protégés. Today, the battle continues between these two diametrically opposing forces over the role of Palestinian nationalism and Islamism in the West Bank and Gaza.

 In this thought-provoking book, Jonathan Schanzer questions the notion of Palestinian political unity, explaining how internal rivalries and violence have ultimately stymied American efforts to promote Middle East peace, and even the Palestinian quest for a homeland.

 Jonathan Schanzer is the director of policy at the Jewish Policy Center.  He has served as counterterrorism analyst for the Office of Intelligence and Analysis at the U.S. Department of Treasury and as a research fellow at Washington Institute for Near East Policy, where he authored the book Al Qaeda’s Armies: Middle East Affiliate Groups and the Next Generation of Terror. He has appeared on Fox News, CNN, and Al-Jazeera. He lives in Washington, D.C.
