Show 1344 The Miracle of The Constitution. Michael Medved History Program.

This is part 1 and 2 of this 3 part Medved History program.

To listen to the entire program and many more topics visit

http://www.medvedhistorystore.com/

The cost is $14.95 and is highly recommended by ACU as are all of the Michael Medved history programs.

 

About the Program-

The Constitution of the United States is so widely revered, so universally accepted as the foundation of our freedom, that most people today simply assume that it's always been there -- as intrinsic an aspect of the American experience as the Great Lakes or the Rocky Mountains.

The untold story of our founding charter, however, is full of close scrapes, barely averted disasters, angry disputes, and miraculous rescues.

This very special history program, released to coincide with Constitution Day (September 17th), tells the exciting and astonishing inside story of the fierce and fearless founders who beat the odds to launch a new government.

The Constitution only became necessary because a prior experiment had failed, miserably, leading to chaos, dysfunction and even a bloody revolution by poor farmers who threatened to extend their rebellion from western Massachusetts to the rest of the country.

How did George Washington, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin and their colleagues subtly overthrow the existing order under the Articles of Confederation, and hijack a "Federal Convention" in Philadelphia to start from scratch in designing a new plan of government?

Why did they decide on a single president, instead of three -- as many delegates demanded?

How did they handle the explosive and divisive issue of slavery?

And what about the ardent insistence by many founders that the "public servants" of the new federal state must serve at their own expense, with no compensation from taxpayers?

Finally, what unresolvable issue come within a heart-beat of blowing up the whole convention and exploding the union, except for the heroic decision by a foppish, elderly, little-known Marylander named Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer?

These stories and more unfold in this riveting presentation -- that concludes with a stirring account of the political warfare that raged across the country to achieve ratification of the new Constitution in spite of bitter opposition from anti-Federalists led by the greatest orator of his time, Revolutionary hero Patrick Henry.

You'll experience the inspiring struggle of dedicated activists -- combining confrontation and compromise -- to establish a functioning Republic that has lasted with relatively minor changes for more than 225 years, and you'll also find that the issues at stake in these long-ago debates have special relevance to our arguments of today.  

The Miracle of the Constitution shows why the framers were right to perceive - as they all did - that God, fate, or Providence played a big role in guiding their work.

Show 1340 Mark Levin interviews professor Edward Erler on birthright citizenship under the 14th amendment

 

Video located at-

https://youtu.be/5dzzi3s9vJ4

 

Segment 2 is an excerpt from Mark Levins book Plunder and Deceit chapter 6 on Immigration. This audio segment serves to introduce you to the book. Purchase book from Amazon or Audible. Recommended by ACU. 

Overview of Book-

In each of his astounding #1 New York Times bestsellers, Mark R. Levin’s overlying patriotic mission has been to avert a devastating tragedy: The loss of the greatest republic known to mankind. But who stands to lose the most?

In modern America, the civil society is being steadily devoured by a ubiquitous federal government. But as the government grows into an increasingly authoritarian and centralized federal Leviathan, many parents continue to tolerate, if not enthusiastically champion, grievous public policies that threaten their children and successive generations with a grim future at the hands of a brazenly expanding and imploding entitlement state poised to burden them with massive debt, mediocre education, waves of immigration, and a deteriorating national defense.

Yet tyranny is not inevitable. In Federalist 51, James Madison explained with cautionary insight the essential balance between the civil society and governmental restraint: “In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself.”

This essential new book is, against all odds, a likeminded appeal to reason and audacity—one intended for all Americans but particularly the rising generation. Younger people must find the personal strength and will to break through the cycle of statist manipulation, unrelenting emotional overtures, and the pressure of groupthink, which are humbling, dispiriting, and absorbing them; to stand up against the heavy hand of centralized government, which if left unabated will assuredly condemn them to economic and societal calamity.

 

Levin calls for a new civil rights movement, one that will foster liberty and prosperity and cease the exploitation of young people by statist masterminds. He challenges the rising generation of younger Americans to awaken to the cause of their own salvation, asking: will you acquiesce to a government that overwhelmingly acts without constitutional foundation—or will you stand in your own defense so that yours and future generations can live in freedom?

Show 1337 Prager University Part 14

 

Welcome to PragerU

What makes America different? Specifically, what makes American values different? And why are those values struggling to gain traction in today's environment, whether in media, entertainment, or academia? In five-minute videos with some of the world's best thinkers, PragerU reaches tens of millions of people per year and explains what makes the United States and its values unique. In this short video narrated by our founder, Dennis Prager, learn about PragerU's mission, vision, and promise.

 

Does Free Speech Offend You?

Should offensive speech be banned? Where should we, as a society, draw the line where permitted speech is on one side, and forbidden speech is on the other? Should we even have that line? And should free speech be limited by things like trigger warnings and punishments for microaggressions? Greg Lukianoff, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, answers these questions and more.

 

Are You on the Wrong Side of History?

Are you on the wrong side or the right side of history? Is there even a "wrong side" or a "right side"? What do those terms mean and why do politicians and pundits use them? Nationally syndicated columnist and best-selling author Jonah Goldberg explains

 

The Most Important Question About Abortion

Is abortion right, or is it wrong? It's the big question that's lost in a societal debate that's mostly focused on legality. But, really, whether it's right or wrong is the most important question about abortion.

 

Was the Civil War About Slavery?

What caused the Civil War? Did the North care about abolishing slavery? Did the South secede because of slavery? Or was it about something else entirely...perhaps states' rights? Colonel Ty Seidule, Professor of History at the United States Military Academy at West Point, settles the debate.

 

The Iran Nuclear Deal

Is the nuclear agreement between the United States and Iran a good or bad deal? Would it be harder or easier for Iran to develop nuclear weapons? Would it make Iran and its terror proxies stronger or weaker? Should the U.S. Congress support or defeat the deal? Dennis Prager answers these questions and more.

 

Why I Left Greenpeace

Patrick Moore explains why he helped to create Greenpeace, and why he decided to leave it. What began as a mission to improve the environment for the sake of humanity became a political movement in which humanity became the villain and hard science a non-issue.

 

Trees Are the Answer

Everybody loves trees, so why are they so controversial? Patrick Moore untangles the knotty issue of "deforestation" and shows how, from a purely environmental perspective, it is possible and desirable to grow more trees and use more wood products.

 

Are GMOs Good or Bad?

Are GMOs really the dangerous experimental foods that activists claim? Patrick Moore cuts through the hype and gives you the facts: how GMOs improve our lives, and how they can save millions of people in the developing world from hunger and disease -- if we only let them.

 

The Truth about CO2

Global Warming activists will tell you that CO2 is bad and dangerous. The EPA has even classified it as a pollutant. But is it? Patrick Moore provides some surprising facts about the benefits of CO2 that you won't hear in the current debate.

 

What They Haven't Told You about Climate Change

Since time immemorial, our climate has been and will always be changing. Patrick Moore explains why “climate change,” far from being a recent human-caused disaster, is, for a myriad of complex reasons, a fact of life on Planet Earth.

 

Religious Tolerance: Made in America

Religious tolerance is a given in the West. But it's a historical aberration -- an ideological revolution created by the Puritans and pre-1776 Americans. What was it that led to the religious tolerance revolution? Was there something unique in Protestantism and Americanism? Or would tolerance have eventually arisen elsewhere, perhaps in Europe? Larry Schweikart, best-selling author and professor of history at the University of Dayton, explains.

 

What Makes America Different?

Is America really that great? Or is the United States just like any other nation? Outsiders tend to be the best judge of character, and Nick Adams, a best-selling Australian author and political commentator, gives an outsider's view of the USA.

 

Should Government Bail Out Big Banks?

Should the government bail out big banks that may otherwise go bankrupt? Or should it let them go under, as it did with Lehman Brothers in 2008? Economist Nicole Gelinas, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute, has the answer, and it will have big implications for policymakers when they grapple with the next economic crisis.

 

Why Do People Become Islamic Extremists?

What makes someone become an Islamic extremist? Is it poverty? Lack of education? A search for meaning? Haroon Ullah, a senior State Department advisor and a foreign policy professor at Georgetown University, shares what he discovered while living in Pakistan.

 

Do Big Unions Buy Politicians?

Who poses the biggest threat to America's economy by striking deals with crooked politicians? Big Oil, Big Pharma, or Big Unions? Daniel DiSalvo, political science professor at the City College of New York, gives the answer.

Show Audiobook segment 2 of 2.   With the Old Breed- At Peleliu and Okinawa by E. B. Sledge

This audiobook segment includes stories from the battle for Okinawa. Of Mud and Maggots.

This is Part 2 of 2.

Buy this great book at Amazon or Audible.com. Highly Recommended by ACU. 

Overview of the book-

In his own book, Wartime, Paul Fussell called With the Old Breed "one of the finest memoirs to emerge from any war." John Keegan referred to it in The Second World War as "one of the most arresting documents in war literature." And Studs Terkel was so fascinated with the story he interviewed its author for his book, "The Good War." What has made E.B. Sledge's memoir of his experience fighting in the South Pacific during World War II so devastatingly powerful is its sheer honest simplicity and compassion.

Now including a new introduction by Paul Fussell, With the Old Breed presents a stirring, personal account of the vitality and bravery of the Marines in the battles at Peleliu and Okinawa. Born in Mobile, Alabama in 1923 and raised on riding, hunting, fishing, and a respect for history and legendary heroes such as George Washington and Daniel Boone, Eugene Bondurant Sledge (later called "Sledgehammer" by his Marine Corps buddies) joined the Marines the year after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and from 1943 to 1946 endured the events recorded in this book. In those years, he passed, often painfully, from innocence to experience.

Sledge enlisted out of patriotism, idealism, and youthful courage, but once he landed on the beach at Peleliu, it was purely a struggle for survival. Based on the notes he kept on slips of paper tucked secretly away in his New Testament, he simply and directly recalls those long months, mincing no words and sparing no pain. The reality of battle meant unbearable heat, deafening gunfire, unimaginable brutality and cruelty, the stench of death, and, above all, constant fear. Sledge still has nightmares about "the bloody, muddy month of May on Okinawa." But, as he also tellingly reveals, the bonds of friendship formed then will never be severed.

Sledge's honesty and compassion for the other marines, even complete strangers, sets him apart as a memoirist of war. Read as sobering history or as high adventure, With the Old Breed is a moving chronicle of action and courage.
