Show 1636  Audio Book Introduction   To Destroy you is no Loss.

Originally published as ACU Show 852.

To those who ask the question “What happens when the Left takes over?” this book will give you insight. When Communists/Socialists take over, on average 10% of the population dies prematurely (murder, starvation, preventable disease etc…) and the survivors live a more miserable, impoverished and oppressed existence. Some countries, like Cambodia suffered over a third of their population dead. Those who say it can’t happen here are dead wrong. It happens every time the Left has unfettered power. – ACU.

About the book-  To Destroy you is no Loss. "To keep you is no benefit, to destroy you is no loss." The taunting slogan used by the Cambodian Communists to intimidate millions of Cambodians in 1975 sets the mood for this incredible survival story. Teeda, who was fifteen at the time of the Khmer Rouge take-over, chronicles her family's fearful existence and their emigration to America. Moore has a clear, soft voice; she gives the story the straightforward yet sensitive reading it deserves. Images of the horror of Teeda's family's deprivation, their sorrows and fears, the love and support within the family, and the strength of the human will to survive are all powerfully communicated by her careful phrasing and subtle changes in tone.  To Destroy You is No Loss. By Joan D. Criddle, Teeda Butt Mam. Narrated by Christina Moore. (from cover case)

Recorded on September 22, 2016

Hoover Institution fellow Victor Davis Hanson discusses Russia, China, and the danger of American withdrawal from the world stage. In addition, Hanson talks about immigration and assimilation in the United States throughout time. Hanson notes that, when immigrants assimilate and embrace the United States, then immigration works and strengthens us, but that when immigrants seek to separate themselves and reject US values and culture, then immigration becomes detrimental. Hanson ends the interview talking about the 2016 presidential candidates and election.

Show 1631 Healthcare  The Four-Part Series By The Glenn Beck Program

Healthcare: The Four-Part Series By The Glenn Beck Program

Why is socialized medicine a bad thing for America? Why is it a bad idea to put government in charge of people’s healthcare? Ronald Reagan warned Americans about socialized medicine in the 1960s. He warned that it was one of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism. It’s very easy, he warned, to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. However, turning over control of one’s healthcare to a government entity delivers a severe blow to individual freedom. In this four-part series, we’ll explore the history of healthcare in America and why big government is never the answer.

Healthcare Part I: Ben Franklin & Bolshevism Ben Franklin raised private funds to open the first American hospital. He believed local communities held the responsibility for funding and managing their local resources. He did not petition the King of England for monies to build a hospital. When the government is involved in the cost of something, it always ends up controlling every other aspect.

Healthcare Part II: The European Model For decades and decades, progressives liberals have lifted up European socialized medicine as the model to which America should aspire. This, in spite of the dismal facts about the effectiveness of nationalized health care. According to European parliament member Daniel Hannan, people are terrified of entering government-run hospitals in England, where 7,000 people died in one year from afflictions picked up in hospitals. Those with prostate cancer are four times as likely to die as their counterparts in the U.S. The survival rate for diseases like breast cancer, heart disease and stroke is a quarter of what it is in the U.S. There’s a reason why our forefathers left the European continent: Freedom. Free market principles and choices translate into higher quality care.

Healthcare Part III: Economic Impact The United Nations rates 36 countries as having superior healthcare systems to the United States, including Syria, Cypress, Costa Rica, Chile, Columbia, Iceland and Greece. Why? Because free stuff is always better than quality, accessible medical care, right? Take a look at the facts, though, and the crushing taxation required to support nationalized healthcare delivers a severe blow to a country’s economy. What good are free services if they collapse your economy and country?

Healthcare Part IV: The Lie of the Year With the passage of Obamacare, Americans were forced to purchase something — for the first time in history — in order to be in good standing with the government. Moreover, it wasn’t an honestly brokered deal. Obamacare, pushed through Congress without proper evaluation or support from the American people, was based on a lie. The president stated over and over that people could keep their current plan and doctor once his sweeping healthcare reform passed. In reality, somewhere between four and seven million Americans lost their plan and/or preferred doctor. Obama promised that families would see their premiums reduced by up to $2,500 per year. Instead, the opposite happened, and rates rose an average of $2,500 per family. Even the liberal fact-check site PolitiFact called it The Lie of the Year. In 2016, the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association reported that new enrollees under Obamacare experienced medical costs 22 percent higher than through their employers. Additionally, The New York Times reported that costs were expected to rise another 10 percent or more throughout 2017.

Show 1630 Audiobook   Great Again- How to Fix Our Crippled America by Donald J. Trump

This audio excerpt serves as an introduction to this book. Purchase at Amazon or Audible.

 

Overview of the book-

In this book (previously published as Crippled America), we’re going to look at the state of the world right now. It’s a terrible mess, and that’s putting it mildly. There has never been a more dangerous time. The politicians and special interests in Washington, DC are directly responsible for the mess we are in. So why should we continue listening to them?

It’s time to bring America back to its rightful owners—the American people.

I’m not going to play the same game politicians have been playing for decades—all talk, no action, while special interests and lobbyists dictate our laws. I am shaking up the establishment on both sides of the political aisle because I can’t be bought. I want to bring America back, to make it great and prosperous again, and to be sure we are respected by our allies and feared by our adversaries.

It’s time for action. Americans are fed up with politics as usual. And they should be! In this book, I outline my vision to make America great again, including: how to fix our failing economy; how to reform health care so it is more efficient, cost-effective, and doesn’t alienate both doctors and patients; how to rebuild our military and start winning wars—instead of watching our enemies take over—while keeping our promises to our great veterans; how to ensure that our education system offers the resources that allow our students to compete internationally, so tomorrow’s jobseekers have the tools they need to succeed; and how to immediately bring jobs back to America by closing our doors to illegal immigrants, and pressuring businesses to produce their goods at home.

This book is my blueprint for how to Make America Great Again. It’s not hard. We just need someone with the courage to say what needs to be said. We won’t find that in Washington, DC.

Show 1628 Audio Book   Scorched Earth- Restoring the Country after Obama by Michael Savage

This audio book excerpt serves as an introduction to this fine book.

Purchase the book at Audible or Amazon. All Michael Savage books are highly recommended by ACU.

Overview of the book-

MICHAEL SAVAGE PREDICTED THE CHAOS THAT IS OBAMA'S LEGACY. NOW HE TELLS US WHETHER THE DESTRUCTION CAN BE STOPPED!

The prophetic author of the bestselling Government Zero, Dr. Michael Savage is back with his most urgent and powerful work.

Listeners to Dr. Savage's top-rated radio talk show, The Savage Nation, know him to be an articulate and engaged spokesman for traditional American values of borders, language, and culture.

Now, after eight divisive years of Barack Obama, Dr. Savage lays out an irrefutable case for how our nation has been undermined by terrorists from without, by anarchists from within, by a president and politicians with contempt for the Constitution and the law, and by a complicit liberal media.

With words and topics that are as insightful as they are timely, he makes an ironclad case for the dangers we face from Hillary Clinton and her fellow travelers in the progressive movement. He also explains why Donald Trump may be one of the two best hopes for America's future as we try to regain control of our government, our country, and our national soul.

The other hope? As Dr. Savage explains in some of his most heartfelt and passionate words, it is we, the people: the ordinary "Eddies," as he calls them-motivated, roused, and engaged.

This book is about much more than an election. It is a veteran commentator and celebrated raconteur providing a blueprint for how to regain our cherished freedoms and our national identity . . . before they are lost forever.

Show 1625 Audio Book- In Trump We Trust   E Pluribus Awesome! by Ann Coulter

This audio book excerpt serves as an introduction to this fine book.  

Purchase the book at Amazon or Audible. All of Ann Coulters books are highly recommended by ACU.

Donald Trump isn't a politician -- he's a one-man wrecking ball against our dysfunctional and corrupt establishment. We're about to see the deluxe version of the left's favorite theme: Vote for us or we'll call you stupid. It's the working class against the smirking class.

Now Ann Coulter, with her unique insight, candor, and sense of humor, makes the definitive case for why we should all join his revolution.

The three biggest news stories of the 2016 presidential election have been: Trump, Trump, and Trump. The media have twisted themselves in knots, trying to grasp how he won over millions of Republicans and what he'd be like as president.

But Ann Coulter isn't puzzled. She knows why Trump was the only one of seventeen GOP contenders who captured the spirit of our time. She gets the power of addressing the pain of the silent majority and saying things the "PC Thought Police" considers unspeakable.

She argues that a bull in the china shop is exactly what we need to make America great again.

In this powerful book, Coulter explains why conservatives, moderates, and even disgruntled Democrats should set aside their doubts and embrace Trump:

  • He's putting America first in our trade deals and alliances, rather than pandering to our allies and enemies.
  • He's abandoned the GOP's decades-long commitment to a bellicose foreign policy, at a time when the entire country is sick of unnecessary wars.
  • He's ended GOP pandering to Hispanic activists with his hard-line policy on immigration. Working class Americans finally have a champion against open borders and cheap foreign labor.
  • He's overturned the media's traditional role in setting the agenda and defining who gets to be considered "presidential."
  • He's exposed political consultants as grifters and hacks, most of whom don't know real voters from a hole in the ground.

If you're already a Trump fan, Ann Coulter will help you defend and promote your position. If you're not, she might just change your mind.

Purchase the book at Amazon or Audible.

Show 1621 Audiobook. Explicit. Agincourt by Bernard Cornwell

Warning- Explicit Language.

This selection serves as an introduction to this fine book. Purchase the book at Amazon or Audible. This and many of Bernard Cornwell’s books are recommended by ACU.

Overview of the book-

Bernard Cornwell, the New York Times bestselling “reigning king of historical fiction” (USA Today), tackles his most thrilling, rich, and enthralling subject yet—the heroic tale of Agincourt. The epic battle immortalized by William Shakespeare in his classic Henry V is the background for this breathtaking tale of heroism, love, devotion, and duty from the legendary author of the Richard Sharpe novels and the Saxon Tales. This extraordinary adventure will captivate from page one, proving once again and most powerfully, as author Lee Child attests, that “nobody in the world does this stuff better than Cornwell.”

Show 1619 Audiobook- Flags of Our Fathers

by James Bradley, Ron Powers

This audio excerpt serves as an introduction to this fine book.

Purchase the book at Audible or Amazon.

Overview of the book-

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

 THE TRUE STORY BEHIND THE IMMORTAL PHOTOGRAPH THAT HAS COME TO SYMBOLIZE THE COURAGE AND INDOMITABLE WILL OF AMERICA

 In February 1945, American Marines plunged into the surf at Iwo Jima—and into history. Through a hail of machine-gun and mortar fire that left the beaches strewn with comrades, they battled to the island’s highest peak. And after climbing through a landscape of hell itself, they raised a flag.

 Now the son of one of the flagraisers has written a powerful account of six very different young men who came together in a moment that will live forever.

 To his family, John Bradley never spoke of the photograph or the war. But after his death at age seventy, his family discovered closed boxes of letters and photos. In Flags of Our Fathers, James Bradley draws on those documents to retrace the lives of his father and the men of Easy Company. Following these men’s paths to Iwo Jima, James Bradley has written a classic story of the heroic battle for the Pacific’s most crucial island—an island riddled with Japanese tunnels and 22,000 fanatic defenders who would fight to the last man.

 But perhaps the most interesting part of the story is what happened after the victory. The men in the photo—three were killed during the battle—were proclaimed heroes and flown home, to become reluctant symbols. For two of them, the adulation was shattering. Only James Bradley’s father truly survived, displaying no copy of the famous photograph in his home, telling his son only: “The real heroes of Iwo Jima were the guys who didn’t come back.”

 Few books ever have captured the complexity and furor of war and its aftermath as well as Flags of Our Fathers. A penetrating, epic look at a generation at war, this is history told with keen insight, enormous honesty, and the passion of a son paying homage to his father. It is the story of the difference between truth and myth, the meaning of being a hero, and the essence of the human experience of war.

Show 1618 Undeniable- How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life Is Designed   

This 60 minute selection serves as an introduction to This fine book. Purchase the book from Audible or Amazon. Recommended by ACU.          

Throughout his distinguished and unconventional career, engineer-turned-molecular-biologist Douglas Axe has been asking the questions that much of the scientific community would rather silence. Now, he presents his conclusions in this brave and pioneering book. Axe argues that the key to understanding our origin is the “design intuition”—the innate belief held by all humans that tasks we would need knowledge to accomplish can only be accomplished by someone who has that knowledge. For the ingenious task of inventing life, this knower can only be God.

Starting with the hallowed halls of academic science, Axe dismantles the widespread belief that Darwin’s theory of evolution is indisputably true, showing instead that a gaping hole has been at its center from the beginning. He then explains in plain English the science that proves our design intuition scientifically valid. Lastly, he uses everyday experience to empower ordinary people to defend their design intuition, giving them the confidence and courage to explain why it has to be true and the vision to imagine what biology will become when people stand up for this truth.

Armed with that confidence, readers will affirm what once seemed obvious to all of us—that living creatures, from single-celled cyanobacteria to orca whales and human beings, are brilliantly conceived, utterly beyond the reach of accident.

Our intuition was right all along.

 

From the Back Cover

“To what or to whom do we owe our existence? This has to be the starting point for people who take life seriously—whether scientists or not. We cannot rest without the answer because absolutely everything of importance is riding on it.”—from Undeniable

Sowell reveals the general principles behind any kind of economy-capitalist, socialist, feudal, and so on. In readable language, he shows how to critique economic policies in terms of the incentives they create, rather than the goals they proclaim. With clear explanations of the entire field, from rent control and the rise and fall of businesses to the international balance of payments, this is the first book for anyone who wishes to understand how the economy functions.

HOMESCHOOL CLASSROOM: History-Political Theory

A Libertarian Gallop Through American History

10/03/2006Thomas E. Woods, Jr.

Some American History is not covered at all in history books. Four of these ignored stories are: 1) in 1798 a law passed making it a crime to say unkind words about anyone in the US government, other than the vice president, who at the time was Jefferson.

Jefferson and James Madison proposed that each state had the power to void a bad law (nullification). This essential idea was the Principles of ’98. It is not mentioned; 2) the story that all businessmen are evil and that government has to step in and save consumers. J.D. Rockefeller turned guck oil into essential kerosene to light homes and made it affordable to all. He developed three hundred separate products out of the guck; 3) Andrew Carnegie made everybody better off by efficiently making steel cheaper. We are told that big business engages in predatory pricing, making big profits by having driven competition out. However, you won’t find any real examples of this. Entrepreneurs dive into the gaps wherever profits are created. Herbert Dow produced bromine cheaply.  A German cartel told Dow he could not sell in Europe. The Germans tried to put him out of business, but Dow out smarted them; 4) the Great Depression lasted for year after year with no growth, yet the textbooks say thanks to the US government we got out of the depression.  One policy introduced was to help farmers. The government did this by destroying ten million acres of cotton so the remaining farmers could get more for cotton. Then they killed six million pigs, while people were hungry. Then the government paid farmers not to produce. This has been applied to oranges and sugar. It was a failed program.

You will never hear about these happenings because the gatekeepers of education have an agenda of government is good, private producers are bad.

Show 1614 Gun Control a Four Four Part Series By The Glenn Beck Program

The constitutional right of Americans to own guns is under attack like never before. Yet the Framers found this right important enough to list second in the Bill of Rights: A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. The Founding Fathers believed self-defense was a Biblical right to ensure citizens could defend themselves against any kind of illegal force — from a neighbor, an outsider or their own government. The anti-Second Amendment crowd believes they can regulate gun ownership based on the words “well regulated,” but that intentionally ignores the Founders’ meaning. It actually means well trained and prepared. However, regulation is exactly how they’ll infringe on your Second Amendment rights. With 300 million guns currently owned by American citizens, it’s not likely they’ll be rounded up by some government agency. Instead, progressive liberals will do what they do best: apply massive regulations to drastically reduce your ability to purchase or own a firearm.

 

Gun Control Part I: Liberal Ignorance and the Founders’ True Intent The ignorant statements of progressive politicians who oppose the Second Amendment would be funny if they weren’t so deadly serious: I actually don’t know what a barrel shroud is. I believe it’s a shoulder thing that goes up. This right here has the ability with a 30-caliber clip to disperse with 30 bullets within half a second. Thirty magazine clip in half a second. For most purposes, having these . . . these . . . these magazine clips that have more than 15 rounds in them, there’s really no purpose for those, except for shooting targets or shooting people. We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks more than three rounds, and yet it’s legal to hunt humans. Actually, no, it isn’t legal to hunt humans in any state. That would be considered murder. To craft the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, America’s Founders studied thousands of years’ of the best knowledge mankind had to offer. They believed the right to self-defense was a fundamental God-given right that existed long before the creation of any government. In fact, written documents pertaining to self-preservation predate the Second Amendment by thousands of years. More than anything else, the Second Amendment was intended for protection against a tyrannical government. Because of their own experiences with tyranny, the Founders provided the means by which the people could rise up and defend their liberty, if ever needed.

 

Gun Control Part II: Effectiveness of Strict Gun Laws France, Great Britain and Australian have some of the strictest gun laws in the world. In a mandatory government “buyback” program, Australian gun owners were forced to relinquish their guns — or go to jail, removing nearly 661,000 guns from law-abiding Aussies. Citizens were paid for their guns, but how do you put a price on security and freedom? One gun owner said, There’s no ifs or buts about it, by taking that gun away from me, they’ve stolen something from me. How effective has Australia’s gun control program been? The NRA reported on a University of Melbourne and British Journal of Criminology study that took place 12 years after the imposed ban. The cold, hard facts cannot be denied: • Armed robberies skyrocketed 69 percent • Assaults involving guns rose 28 percent • Gun murders increased 19 percent • Home invasions jumped 21 percent Over and over, the evidence shows that banning guns and imposing strict laws consistently raises homicide rates.

 

Gun Control Part III: Progressive Lies Never let a serious crisis go to waste. It’s the mantra of the progressive left, and they unashamedly use it to impose their agenda on America — especially regarding the Second Amendment. Sadly, progressives use every single mass shooting as another opportunity to infringe on our right to bear arms, despite irrefutable evidence that gun laws would do nothing to prevent such crimes. Ignoring the facts and deliberately lying to the American public has become standard operating procedure. When Barack Obama says that “states with the most gun laws tend to have the fewest gun deaths,” he knows full well the semantics game he’s playing. Cities like Chicago and Washington, D.C., have the toughest gun laws in the nation, along with the highest gun murder rates. The state of Illinois has a gun murder rate of 2.8 per 100,000 people, but Chicago is right at 16 per 100,000 — five times the rate of Illinois. The states of Maryland and Virginia compare similarly with regard to Washington, D.C. Even though progressives have failed to overturn the Second Amendment, they have made inroads by establishing things like gun-free zones — the locations where most mass shootings now take place. Why? Because they’re easy targets for those wishing to perpetrate evil and violence. While progressives continue their illogical and emotional attacks on controlling gun violence by violating the rights of law-abiding citizens, the real issues go unaddressed. And the problem will never be solved until they stop blaming the guns and start concentrating on the people pulling the triggers.

 

Gun Control Part IV: Confiscation If Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have never advocated taking guns from responsible gun owners, then why do they both keep suggesting that we could use, as a model for the United States, the gun laws in Britain and Australia? Two countries that have taken guns out of the hands of responsible gun owners. For American citizens that don’t believe that confiscation can happen in the United States of America, here’s a clue: It already has. This is where America is today in the battle to retain its Second Amendment rights. One slipup from a Second Amendment supporter brings widespread condemnation and ridicule from the media. But an anti-gun president of the United States can claim that your 14-year-old is more likely to have a fully automatic Glock, G20, on their nightstand than a heartwarming copy of The Fault in Our Stars. The first step is knowing there is an ongoing attack. And while progressives certainly have contempt for the Second Amendment, they also know that the vast majority of Americans cherish the Constitution, including, if not especially, the Second Amendment. So progressive politicians continue to walk the fine line between appearing to support the Constitution, while at the same time desperately trying to curtail or eliminate American citizens’ gun rights. The only way to stop them is with an informed, vigilant, and active citizenry.
