Show 1224 Part 1 of 2 THE CASE FOR DIVINE PROVIDENCE IN U.S. HISTORY

This is part 1 of 2 of this Medved History program.

To listen to the entire program and many more topics visit

http://www.medvedhistorystore.com/

The cost is $15.

 

As historian Walter MacDougall declares,       -The creation of the United States is the central event of the last 400 years of human history.-    No other development has proven more consequential, or less predictable, than the rapid emergence of the dominant economic, military and cultural power on earth in the sparsely settled, undeveloped continent of North America.

 

The dramatic nature of America's rise allows only three plausible explanations -

 

it's an accident, a series of fortunate coincidences

it's a crime, a collection of uniquely selfish, ruthless, exploitative misdeeds that allowed America to push ahead of the rest of the world

or it's the hand of God, an example of Divine Providence at work.

This show makes clear that virtually all our leaders over the course of some 400 years have understood the American experience as a result of a Higher Power's influence on history. To explain America's improbable rise as a product of coincidence and luck has never been satisfying or plausible, so those who reject the idea of Providence emphasis allegations of plunder; if you don't stress a grateful America, you're likely to embrace a guilty America.

 

With eye-witness accounts of remarkable and illogical events, this program supplements and expands the previous release GOD'S HAND ON AMERICA with all new subjects, information and argument. We cover unheralded and amazing aspects of the American Revolution, the conquest of an empty continent, and religious visionaries who helped the nation achieve and explain its destiny.

 

 

There's also an astonishing, little-known story about the discovery of a huge cross more than 13 stories high, carved by nature into a remote mountainside in the Rockies, and inspiring pilgrims for generations before political correctness, and an oddly timed landslide, destroyed the popularity of the once-cherished site.

Show 1223 Audio Book part 2 of 2. The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors: The Extraordinary World War II Story of the U.S. Navy's Finest Hour by James D. Hornfischer

 

This is excerpt two from the audiobook.

 

Overview of the Book-

-This will be a fight against overwhelming odds from which survival cannot be expected. We will do what damage we can.-

With these words, Lieutenant Commander Robert W. Copeland addressed the crew of the destroyer escort USS Samuel B. Roberts on the morning of October 25, 1944, off the Philippine Island of Samar. On the horizon loomed the mightiest ships of the Japanese navy, a massive fleet that represented the last hope of a staggering empire. All that stood between it and Douglas MacArthur’s vulnerable invasion force were the Roberts and the other small ships of a tiny American flotilla poised to charge into history.

 

In the tradition of the #1 New York Times bestseller Flags of Our Fathers, James D. Hornfischer paints an unprecedented portrait of the Battle of Samar, a naval engagement unlike any other in U.S. history—and captures with unforgettable intensity the men, the strategies, and the sacrifices that turned certain defeat into a legendary victory.

 

Purchase the book from Amazon or Audible. Highly recommended by ACU.

Published on Nov 6, 2014

The finest trick of the devil, Baudelaire once wrote, is to persuade you that he does not exist. Modern liberalism, being far less devilish, has pulled a lesser, but still effective, trick: It has convinced Americans that conservatives don’t care. In fact, the left has made  CARING   their exclusive prerogative and successfully framed most political debates as pitting compassionate liberals against heartless conservatives. Along the way, liberals have built a remarkable edifice of government programs that are justified by appeals to citizens’ compassion.

Show 1219 Documentary    In the Face of Evil - Reagan's War in Word and Deed

 

“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny... We must act today in order to preserve tomorrow.” - Ronald Reagan

 

More than a traditional war film, In the Face of Evil plays out on an epic scale... from the back-lots of Hollywood, to the jungles of Central America; from the mountains of Afghanistan, to the palaces of the Kremlin; to the Brandenburg Gate in the heart of a divided Berlin...

In the Face of Evil details, for the first time, with never-before-seen footage, the top-secret plans of Reagan and his inner circle ... and their brick-by-brick takedown of the “Evil Empire.”

With the world mired in the beginnings of a new global conflict, In the Face of Evil is more relevant today than ever. The film affords profound insights on the brutality of the last century, and offers a prism through which we can gain perspective on the bloody conflicts that stretch ahead.

As the 21st century’s great conflict between freedom and Islamic Fascism takes shape, In the Face of Evil, and the words and deeds of Ronald Reagan, provide an invaluable lesson for how the U.S., and the free world, must combat the forces of Evil... if we are to survive.

Show 1216 Audio Book  Treason- Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism by Ann Coulter

Chapter 1 of Audio book.

 

Please purchase entire audio book from Audible.

All of Ann coulters books are highly recommended by ACU and are a must have in every Conservative Library.

 

Overview of the Book

“Liberals’ loyalty to the United States is off-limits as a subject of political debate. Why is the relative patriotism of the two parties the only issue that is out of bounds for rational discussion?”

 

In a stunning follow-up to her number one bestseller Slander, leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have been wrong on every foreign policy issue, from the fight against Communism at home and abroad, the Nixon and the Clinton presidencies, and the struggle with the Soviet empire right up to today’s war on terrorism. “Liberals have a preternatural gift for always striking a position on the side of treason,” says Coulter. “Everyone says liberals love America, too. No, they don’t.” From Truman to Kennedy to Carter to Clinton, America has contained, appeased, and retreated, often sacrificing America’s best interests and security. With the fate of the world in the balance, liberals should leave the defense of the nation to conservatives.

 

Reexamining the sixty-year history of the Cold War and beyond—including the career of Senator Joseph McCarthy, the Whittaker Chambers–Alger Hiss affair, Ronald Reagan’s challenge to Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall,” the Gulf War, and our present war on terrorism—Coulter reveals how liberals have been horribly wrong in all their political analyses and policy prescriptions. McCarthy, exonerated by the Venona Papers if not before, was basically right about Soviet agents working for the U.S. government. Hiss turned out to be a high-ranking Soviet spy (who consulted Roosevelt at Yalta). Reagan, ridiculed throughout his presidency, ended up winning the Cold War. And George W. Bush, also an object of ridicule, has performed exceptionally in responding to America’s newest threats at home and abroad.

 

Coulter, who in Slander exposed a liberal bias in today’s media, also examines how history, especially in the latter half of the twentieth century, has been written by liberals and, therefore, distorted by their perspective. Far from being irrelevant today, her clearheaded and piercing view of what we’ve been through informs us perfectly for challenges today and in the future.

 

 

With Slander, Ann Coulter became the most recognized and talked-about conservative intellectual of the year. Treason, in many ways an even more controversial and prescient book, will ignite impassioned political debate at one of the most crucial moments in our history.

Program Description-  

Diseases that were largely eradicated in the United States a generation ago—whooping cough, measles, mumps—are returning, in part because nervous parents are skipping their children’s shots. NOVA’s “Vaccines—Calling the Shots" takes viewers around the world to track epidemics, explore the science behind vaccinations, hear from parents wrestling with vaccine-related questions, and shed light on the risks of opting out.

The Progressive Income Tax: A Tale of Three Brothers

http://youtu.be/S6HEH23W_bM?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1w_5qAEs5cSUJ5Bk0R8QLaY

Published on Nov 3, 2014

"The Progressive Income Tax" is one of those economic terms that gets bandied about, but few actually know what it means or how it works. This tale of three similar brothers with three different incomes (but one shared expense) helps explain the tax system under which we live. Adapted from an article by noted investor and economist, Kip Hagopian, and narrated by actress Carolyn Hennesy of "General Hospital" and "True Blood" fame, this animated story will change the way you think about how you pay your taxes

 

What's the Right Minimum Wage?

http://youtu.be/4j01L69eXdI?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1w_5qAEs5cSUJ5Bk0R8QLaY

Published on Oct 27, 2014

What's the perfect minimum wage: is it $10 an hour? $15? $20? How about zero? That's right. Zero. While Congress discusses a minimum wage hike, economist David Henderson shows that any minimum wage makes it harder for unemployed people (particularly young people) to find work and forces business owners to cut the hours of lower-skilled employees.

 

How to Solve America's Spending Problem

http://youtu.be/8Ti8RQPh7IE?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1w_5qAEs5cSUJ5Bk0R8QLaY

Published on Sep 29, 2014

Everyone complains about America's debt, and rightly so, but how do we get out of it? As Cato Institute's Michael Tanner explains, spending on entitlement programs -- Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid -- has exploded in recent decades. We must slow their growth or they will soon swallow the entire federal budget. In five minutes, learn how America can preserve these programs and get out of debt.

 

What Creates Wealth?

http://youtu.be/661TPEvCCTU?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1w_5qAEs5cSUJ5Bk0R8QLaY

Published on Aug 11, 2014

Why are some countries rich and some countries poor? Is it access to natural resources? Is it tax policy? A motivated work force? These are important, but not determinative. The answer is deceptively simple – it’s what’s in our heads: knowledge. Thus, the surest way to promote economic growth is to cultivate an environment that encourages the spread of knowledge. Such an environment requires freedom, which is why the freest societies are the most prosperous. In five minutes, economist George Gilder explains why.

 

The War on Work

http://youtu.be/1nN1HqAps4Y?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1w_5qAEs5cSUJ5Bk0R8QLaY

Published on Jul 21, 2014

The U.S. government has spent trillions of dollars in recent decades attempting to combat poverty, yet the poverty rate has remained virtually unmoved. Why? As social economist Michael Tanner explains, the "War on Poverty" has both discouraged work and ensnared people in hardship. The "War on Poverty," it turns out, is actually a "War on Work." In five minutes, learn the truth about government's counterproductive efforts to eliminate poverty.

 

The Promise of Free Enterprise

http://youtu.be/xSMd4BuuXB8?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1w_5qAEs5cSUJ5Bk0R8QLaY

Published on Jun 9, 2014

Built into the foundation of free enterprise is a promise. It's a promise that no other economic system offers. This promise has a great deal to do with your sense of well-being, that is, your happiness. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton understood this. So does renowned social scientist, Arthur Brooks. In five minutes, he explains how happiness and free enterprise are marvelously entwined.

 

Why Capitalism Works

http://youtu.be/w6adVQrSUAc?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1w_5qAEs5cSUJ5Bk0R8QLaY

Published on Mar 10, 2014

Cultural depictions of capitalism are almost all negative. There's the Monopoly guy with the top hat and cigar. There's Gordon Gekko saying, "Greed is good." And, most recently, there's the hedonism of the "Wolf of Wall Street". The message is clear: capitalism is selfish. Socialism, or something like it, is selfless. In fact, the opposite is true. Renown social critic George Gilder offers this startling insight: capitalism, at it's core, is first an expression of altruism; that is, of giving. An entrepreneur can only succeed by satisfying a customer's need. This is why capitalism, and only capitalism, can create the prosperity that all societies crave and why all other economic prescriptions are doomed to failure.

 

Lower Taxes, Higher Revenue

http://youtu.be/FqLjyA0hL1s?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1w_5qAEs5cSUJ5Bk0R8QLaY

Published on Feb 3, 2014

Should Taxes Be Higher? It's the million dollar question! Up? Down? No change? Where in the world should taxes go? In election years, the question of tax rates fills the airwaves. In non-election years, the question of tax rates, again, fills the airwaves. So what's the answer? UCLA Professor of Economics Tim Groseclose explains his research on the topic. Basically, there's a certain point at which higher tax rates actually reduce the amount of revenue the government collects. What's that point? When are tax rates too high? Learn a valuable lesson in economics, and public policy.

 

Is the Customer Always Right?

http://youtu.be/AEMd6NDT5Z8?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1w9GVrOrzMZbwU7Li6TAT91

Published on Nov 17, 2014

"The customer is always right" is a motto we hear often and it suggests that consumers only have rights and businesses only have obligations. That is wrong. Dennis Prager explains that customers, too, have obligations, and should never take up a salesperson's time to inquire about an item they know they'll purchase elsewhere. In 5 minutes, learn how to shop ethically.

 

The Missing Tile Syndrome

http://youtu.be/1qanDVZHliw?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1w9GVrOrzMZbwU7Li6TAT91

Published on Aug 4, 2014

Have you ever thought to yourself, "I wish I were ____"? Adjectives may have included: thinner, taller, smarter, etc. If so, you're like virtually everyone else, and afflicted by "The Missing Tile Syndrome." As Dennis Prager explains, we often focus on the missing tile(s) in our lives, which robs us of happiness. In five minutes, learn how to fix your focus.

 

What Matters Most in Life?

http://youtu.be/Lg-wNxJ5XxY?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1w9GVrOrzMZbwU7Li6TAT91

Published on Jul 7, 2014

What is the most important thing in life? Money? Happiness? Love? Those things are certainly important, but what matters most is good values. What are values? They are what we consider more important than our feelings. For instance, just about everyone feels like eating junk food, but if you eat whatever you feel like eating you will end up obese and unhealthy. So then, what stops people from eating all the food they feel like eating? The answer is good values. Indeed a lack of good values is the root of virtually everything wrong with the world. In five minutes, learn why we should act based on values rather than our feelings.

 

What Every Graduate Should Know

http://youtu.be/fEmBCiEnREQ?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1w9GVrOrzMZbwU7Li6TAT91

Published on Jun 2, 2014

As a college graduate, the commencement speech is something that you can take with you into the world. America's universities have attracted some of the most successful and famous people to speak to graduates. Some commencement speakers deliver grand and inspiring speeches. Some don't say much. Dennis Prager has his own five-minute commencement speech he'd like to give to this year's college graduates. It's not the typical address, and not one you'd likely hear at most universities.

 

What Did Your Parents Most Want You to Be?

http://youtu.be/5adJxEWLFKU?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1w9GVrOrzMZbwU7Li6TAT91

Published on Mar 17, 2014

When parents boast about their children with other people, what do most say first? Is it how nice they are to strangers? Or how much volunteering they did last year? Usually not. More often, they talk about their good grades in school, or the prestigious college they went to, or the much sought after summer internship they are on. But this is backwards. Acts of kindness are what parents should talk about with others, and what they should really praise their kids for. According to Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, the best way to make a better world is to praise people for what counts--goodness.

Welcome to Prager University. Best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio talk show host, Dennis Prager, through an ever expanding curriculum of five minute courses taught by the finest faculty in the world, Prager University can give you the education you should have received. Tuition is voluntary.

 

1. The World's Most Persecuted Minority- Christians

 To watch this video visit-

http://youtu.be/ytdMUddGe-U

 The most persecuted and victimized people in the world today are Christians in the Middle East. The perpetrators of the widespread destruction of that region's Christian community? Islamists. Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim lays out the grim details.

 

2. A Black South African on Israel and Apartheid

Is Israel an “apartheid state,” as its enemies claim? Who better to answer that charge than a Black South African who lived through apartheid? Kenneth Meshoe, a member of the South African parliament, fits that bill. He examines the evidence against Israel and draws a compelling conclusion.

 

3. Money in Politics: What's the Problem?

http://youtu.be/c5-4jW5dLSI?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1zs1gI2nYdZk6wL606nGOQ9

 Is "campaign finance reform" a good way to regulate money in politics? Nationally syndicated, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and best-selling author George Will shows that, despite the innocent name given by its proponents, campaign finance reform is really a euphemism for controlling free speech. If the goal is to get money out of politics, the real solution is to get politics out of money. In other words, shrink government. In five minutes, learn the truth. 

 

4. Feminism vs. Truth

http://youtu.be/1oqyrflOQFc?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1zs1gI2nYdZk6wL606nGOQ9

Women in America are the freest in the world, yet many feminists tell us women are oppressed. They advocate this falsehood through victim mentality propaganda and misleading statistics, such as the gender wage gap myth. In five minutes, American Enterprise Institute's Christina Hoff Sommers tells you the truth about feminism.

 

 5. Is the UN Fair to Israel?

http://youtu.be/2tYdL-jiBQE?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1zs1gI2nYdZk6wL606nGOQ9

Israel is a vibrant democracy with full rights for women and gays, a free press and independent judiciary. You would think that the United Nations would celebrate such a country. Instead, the UN condemns Israel at every turn to the point of obsession. How did this happen? Anne Bayefsky, director of the Touro Institute on Human Rights, explains in five eye-opening minutes.

 

How the Liberal University Hurts the Liberal Student

http://youtu.be/MOWQbRt8FbY?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1zs1gI2nYdZk6wL606nGOQ9

Are most college professors liberal? Yes, says Penn State Associate Professor of Political Science and Philosophy Matthew Woessner. Perhaps surprisingly, however, his research shows that liberal bias does not seem to influence right-leaning students. Rather, it insulates left-leaning students, hindering their ability to critically analyze their own ideas. In five minutes, learn more about college liberal bias.

 

6. Teachers Unions vs. Students

http://youtu.be/mG8w9PcA-ig?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1zs1gI2nYdZk6wL606nGOQ9

There is a dilemma in American education. On the one hand, teachers are essential to student achievement. On the other, teachers unions promote self-interests of their members which are antithetical to the interests of students. So, how do we fix this problem? In five minutes, Terry Moe, Professor of Political Science at Stanford University, delineates this quandary and offers solutions.

 

 

7. BDS: The Attempt to Strangle Israel

http://youtu.be/bTuTL8aCx6k?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1zs1gI2nYdZk6wL606nGOQ9

The latest strategy employed by those who wish to strangle Israel is called BDS. It may sound harmless, but do not be fooled. It stands for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, and not only is it poisonous for Israel, but for the world as well. Israel is one of the freest countries on earth, where everyone--including Arabs--benefit from that freedom. If Israel continues to be singled out by BDS and suffocated economically, the damage would ripple throughout the globe. In five minutes, learn about BDS and why it must be stopped.

 

 

8. Do You Pass the Israel Test?

http://youtu.be/yfN2IvnIA4M?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1zs1gI2nYdZk6wL606nGOQ9

Would you believe us if we said that the best litmus test of any society's success is its attitude towards Israel? Well, it's true. As George Gilder explains, whether a society envies and resents Israel's success or celebrates and tries to replicate it is indicative of that society's progress. Countries that "pass" the "Israel Test" tend to rise. Those who don't tend to sink. So, does your society pass the "Israel Test"? In five minutes, find out.

 

 9. War on Boys

http://youtu.be/OFpYj0E-yb4?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1zs1gI2nYdZk6wL606nGOQ9

What ever happened to letting "boys be boys?" Take these two cases: In one, a seven-year-old boy was sent home for nibbling a Pop Tart into a gun. In another, a teacher was so alarmed by a picture drawn by a student (of a sword fight), that the boy's parents were summoned in for a conference. In short, boys in America's schools are routinely punished for being active, competitive, and restless. In other words, boys can no longer be boys. Christina Hoff Sommers, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, explains how we can change this.

 

 10. Iran and the Bomb

http://youtu.be/dYxEpS5M8Tk?list=PLIBtb_NuIJ1zs1gI2nYdZk6wL606nGOQ9

Many countries have nuclear weapons, and many more want them. Only one, though, has its neighbors and the world terrified. That country is Iran. Why is everyone so concerned? Because the Islamic theocracy has repeatedly threatened to destroy Israel, sponsors global terrorism, and would leverage the deterrence effect of a nuclear weapon to advance their anti-Western and anti-American interests. Bret Stephens, foreign affairs columnist for the Wall Street Journal explains the one thing you really need to know in order to understand why we can't let Iran get the bomb--they may actually use it.
