Show 885   In his new book, Shadowbosses, Mallory Factor examines the power and the corruption of government union bosses who manipulate our political system for their own advantage. He provides examples of how money now flows from government employee unions to politicians and back again to the same unions in a never-ending cycle of greed. As a result, he argues that the unions’ interests come first, the workers’ interests second, and the citizens’ interests always come in a distant last place. Furthermore, he posits that these “shadowbosses,” who have organized federal, state, and local government employees, are not only driving America down the path to financial ruin but also are a threat to workers’ freedoms and even our American way of life.

Mallory Factor is the John C. West Professor of International Politics and American Government at The Citadel. He is a political commentator, a Forbes columnist, Senior Editor of Money and Politics for TheStreet.com, and a co-founder of The Monday Meeting, an influential group of conservative political leaders, journalists, donors, think tank heads, and grassroots leaders in New York City. He has written extensively on economic and financial issues for The Wall Street Journal, Christian Science Monitor, and National Review and has appeared on numerous networks and cable stations to discuss and assess such policy issues.  51 minutes

Show 8830Book- Who's Counting?: How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk by John Fund and Hans vonSpakovsky. This is a good interview/debate with the lefty host Linda Killian from Book TV.

http://www.booktv.org/Featured/13746/After+Words+John+Fund+Hans+Von+Spakovsky+Whos+Counting+How+Fraudsters+and+Bureaucrats+Put+Your+Vote+at+Risk+hosted+by+Linda+Killian+Wilson+Center.aspx

 

 Overview of the book-

The 2012 election will be one of the hardest-fought in U.S. history. It is also likely to be one of the closest, a fact that brings concerns about voter fraud and bureaucratic incompetence in the conduct of elections front and center. If we don't take notice, we could see another debacle like the Bush-Gore Florida recount of 2000 in which courts and lawyers intervened in what should have involved only voters.

Who's Counting? will focus attention on many problems of our election system, ranging from voter fraud to a slipshod system of vote counting that noted political scientist Walter Dean Burnham calls “the most careless of the developed world.” In an effort to clean up our election laws, reduce fraud and increase public confidence in the integrity of the voting system, many states ranging from Georgia to Wisconsin have passed laws requiring a photo ID be shown at the polls and curbing the rampant use of absentee ballots, a tool of choice by fraudsters. The response from Obama allies has been to belittle the need for such laws and attack them as akin to the second coming of a racist tide in American life. In the summer of 2011, both Bill Clinton and DNC chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz preposterously claimed that such laws suppressed minority voters and represented a return to the era of Jim Crow.

But voter fraud is a well-documented reality in American elections. Just this year, a sheriff and county clerk in West Virginia pleaded guilty to stuffing ballot boxes with fraudulent absentee ballots that changed the outcome of an election. In 2005, a state senate election in Tennessee was overturned because of voter fraud. The margin of victory? 13 votes. In 2008, the Minnesota senate race that provided the 60th vote needed to pass Obamacare was decided by a little over 300 votes. Almost 200 felons have already been convicted of voting illegally in that election and dozens of other prosecutions are still pending. Public confidence in the integrity of elections is at an all-time low. In the Cooperative Congressional Election Study of 2008, 62% of American voters thought that voter fraud was very common or somewhat common. Fear that elections are being stolen erodes the legitimacy of our government. That's why the vast majority of Americans support laws like Kansas's Secure and Fair Elections Act. A 2010 Rasmussen poll showed that 82% of Americans support photo ID laws.

While Americans frequently demand observers and best practices in the elections of other countries, we are often blind to the need to scrutinize our own elections. We may pay the consequences in 2012 if a close election leads us into pitched partisan battles and court fights that will dwarf the Bush-Gore recount wars

 Show 879 Dinesh D’Souza debates the topic  “Is Christianity Good for American Politics? “

 To Watch the video of this audio presentation visit   http://youtu.be/Wd2F5mwAWG4

 Today, many argue that religious liberty is under assault while others believe that faith is meant for the private realm and its public expression stands in the way of a secular political discourse. This issue is certainly apparent in the controversy surrounding the HHS bill. This being the case, a debate over the role of Christianity in American politics could not be more pertinent.

Dinesh D'souza, recent author of "What's so Great About Christianity?" and president of the King's College, has been called one of the "top young public-policy makers in the country" by Investor's Business Daily. The New York Times Magazine named him one of America's most influential conservative thinkers. D'Souza's articles have appeared in virtually every major magazine and newspaper, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic Monthly, Vanity Fair, New Republic, and National Review. He has appeared on numerous television programs, including the Today Show, Nightline, The News Hour, O'Reilly Factor, Moneyline, and Hannity and Colmes.

 Susan Jacoby, program director at The Center for Inquiry and author of New York Times bestseller, The Age of American Unreason (2008)and Alger Hiss and The Battle for History (2009), is an independent scholar whose work focuses on American intellectual history. Jacoby has been a contributor for more than 25 years, on topics including law, religion, medicine, aging, women's rights, political dissent in the Soviet Union, and Russian literature, to a wide range of periodicals and newspapers. Her articles and essays have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Washington Post Book World, Los Angeles Times Book Review, Newsday, Harper's, The Nation, Vogue, The American Prospect, Mother Jones, and the AARP Magazine, among other publications.
