Show 1253 Audio Book part 2 of 2  Nullification- How to Resist Federal Tyranny by Thomas E. Woods

 

Chapter 5 from the audiobook.

Purchase the book from Amazon and the audiobook from Audible. Highly recommended by ACU.

 

Overview of the book-

Unconstitutional laws are pouring out of Washington but we can stop them.

 

Just ask Thomas Jefferson. There is a rightful remedy” to federal power grabs—it’s called Nullification.

 

In Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century, historian and New York Times bestselling author Thomas E. Woods, Jr. explains not only why nullification is the constitutional tool the Founders envisioned, but how it works—and has already been employed in cases ranging from upholding the First Amendment to knocking down slave laws before the Civil War. In Nullification, Woods shows:

 

* How the states were meant to be checks against federal tyranny—and how a growing roster of governors and state attorneys general are recognizing they need to become that again

* Why the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution reinforces the rights of states to nullify unconstitutional laws

* Why it was left to the states to uphold the simple principle that an unconstitutional law is no law at all

* Why, without nullification, ordinary Americans will continue to suffer the oppression of unjust, unconstitutional laws

* How, through nullification, stimulus spending,” Obamacare, and other unconstitutional expansions of federal power can be rolled back

* PLUS thorough documentation of how the Founding Fathers believed nullification could be applied

 

Nullification is not just a book—it could become a movement to restore the proper constitutional limits of the federal government. Powerful, provocative, and timely, Nullification is sure to stir debate and become a constitutional handbook for all liberty-loving Americans.

Show 1249 The end of US dollar supremacy

Patrick Barron on Mises Weekends

 

From the Mises website-

MISES WEEKENDS

Our #1 Show of 2014!

Looking back on our first year of Mises Weekends, we decided to check the numbers and run the program with the highest ratings as we close out 2014. So based on analytics from YouTube, iTunesU, and Stitcher, the #1 show of the year is none other than Patrick Barron in a two-part interview on the end of US dollar supremacy.

 

Recorded in October, Patrick and Jeff discuss how the dollar became the world’s reserve currency after Bretton Woods, the dollar’s evolution as a weapon of mass US imperialism, and how its inevitable decline will have horrific consequences for those nations—and individuals—not prepared for it.

Show 1247 The Closing of the Muslim Mind: How Intellectual Suicide Created the Modern Islamist Crisis by Robert R. Reilly 

 

Segment 1- Janet Mefferd talks to the author. 1/6/2015   20 minutes.

 

Segment 2- Speech by Robert R. Reilly on his book The Closing of the Muslim Mind: How Intellectual Suicide Created the Modern Islamist Crisis

 

In this eye-opening new book, foreign policy expert Robert R. Reilly uncovers the root of our contemporary crisis: a pivotal struggle waged within the Muslim world nearly a millennium ago. In a heated battle over the role of reason, the side of irrationality won. The deformed theology that resulted, Reilly reveals, produced the spiritual pathology of Islamism, and a deeply dysfunctional culture.

 

Terrorism—from 9/11, to London, Madrid, and Mumbai, to the Christmas 2009 attempted airline bombing—is the most obvious manifestation of this crisis. But Reilly shows that the pathology extends much further. The Closing of the Muslim Mind solves such puzzles as:

 

• why peace is so elusive in the Middle East

 

• why the Arab world stands near the bottom of every measure of human development

 

• why scientific inquiry is nearly dead in the Islamic world

 

• why Spain translates more books in a single year than the entire Arab world has in the past thousand years

 

• why some people in Saudi Arabia still refuse to believe man has been to the moon

 

• why Muslim media frequently present natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina as God's direct retribution

Show 1244 Freedom's Forge-  How American Business Produced Victory in World War II.  Mason Lecture Series

The National WWII Museum

Published on Apr 24, 2013

http://youtu.be/QlKOdT0SEOY

 

Hear from bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize Finalist, Arthur Herman, as he discusses his latest book, Freedom's Forge. Remarkable as it may seem today, there once was a time when the president of the United States could pick up the phone and ask the president of General Motors to resign his position and take the reins of a great national enterprise. And the CEO would oblige, no questions asked, because it was his patriotic duty.

 

In Freedoms Forge, bestselling author Arthur Herman takes us back to that time, revealing how two extraordinary American business men — automobile magnate William Knudsen and shipbuilder Henry J. Kaiser — helped corral, cajole, and inspire business leaders across the country to mobilize the "arsenal of democracy" that propelled the Allies to victory in World War II.

 

Dr. Arthur Herman is a former visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, and the author of many books, including How the Scots Invented the Modern World and Gandhi & Churchill which was the 2009 Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in General Nonfiction.

Show 1241 An Empire on the Edge  How Britain Came to Fight America Written by Nick BunkerAuthor

 

Michael Medved talks to the author of An Empire on the Edge  How Britain Came to Fight America, Nick Bunker.

Written from a strikingly fresh perspective, this new account of the Boston Tea Party and the origins of the American Revolution shows how a lethal blend of politics, personalities, and economics led to a war that few people welcomed but nobody could prevent. 

 

In this powerful but fair-minded narrative, British author Nick Bunker tells the story of the last three years of mutual embitterment that preceded the outbreak of America’s war for independence in 1775. It was a tragedy of errors, in which both sides shared responsibility for a conflict that cost the lives of at least twenty thousand Britons and a still larger number of Americans. The British and the colonists failed to see how swiftly they were drifting toward violence until the process had gone beyond the point of no return.

At the heart of the book lies the Boston Tea Party, an event that arose from fundamental flaws in the way the British managed their affairs. By the early 1770s, Great Britain had become a nation addicted to financial speculation, led by a political elite beset by internal rivalry and increasingly baffled by a changing world. When the East India Company came close to collapse, it patched together a rescue plan whose disastrous side effect was the destruction of the tea.

 

With lawyers in London calling the Tea Party treason, and with hawks in Parliament crying out for revenge, the British opted for punitive reprisals without foreseeing the resistance they would arouse. For their part, Americans underestimated Britain’s determination not to give way. By the late summer of 1774, when the rebels in New England began to arm themselves, the descent into war had become irreversible.

           

Drawing on careful study of primary sources from Britain and the United States, An Empire on the Edge sheds new light on the Tea Party’s origins and on the roles of such familiar characters as Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock, and Thomas Hutchinson. The book shows how the king’s chief minister, Lord North, found himself driven down the road to bloodshed. At his side was Lord Dartmouth, the colonial secretary, an evangelical Christian renowned for his benevolence. In a story filled with painful ironies, perhaps the saddest was this: that Dartmouth, a man who loved peace, had to write the dispatch that sent the British army out to fight.

Show 1238 America in Retreat: The New Isolationism and the Coming Global Disorder by Bret Stephens

 Dennis Prager talks to Brett Stephens, foreign affairs columnist for the WSJ. His new book is America in Retreat: The New Isolationism and the Coming Global Disorder. 

Segment 2- Author Bret Stephens joins Riely and Scot on WROK to discuss the book.

 

Overview of the book-

-A world in which the leading liberal-democratic nation does not assume its role as world policeman will become a world in which dictatorships contend, or unite, to fill the breach. Americans seeking a return to an isolationist garden of Eden—alone and undisturbed in the world, knowing neither good nor evil—will soon find themselves living within shooting range of global pandemonium. —From the Introduction

 

In a brilliant book that will elevate foreign policy in the national conversation, Pulitzer Prize–winning columnist Bret Stephens makes a powerful case for American intervention abroad.

 

In December 2011 the last American soldier left Iraq. “We’re leaving behind a sovereign, stable, and self-reliant Iraq,” boasted President Obama. He was proved devastatingly wrong less than three years later as jihadists seized the Iraqi city of Mosul. The event cast another dark shadow over the future of global order—a shadow, which, Bret Stephens argues, we ignore at our peril.

 

America in Retreat identifies a profound crisis on the global horizon. As Americans seek to withdraw from the world to tend to domestic problems, America’s adversaries spy opportunity. Vladimir Putin’s ambitions to restore the glory of the czarist empire go effectively unchecked, as do China’s attempts to expand its maritime claims in the South China Sea, as do Iran’s efforts to develop nuclear capabilities. Civil war in Syria displaces millions throughout the Middle East while turbocharging the forces of radical Islam. Long-time allies such as Japan, Saudi Arabia, and Israel, doubting the credibility of American security guarantees, are tempted to freelance their foreign policy, irrespective of U.S. interests.

 

Deploying his characteristic stylistic flair and intellectual prowess, Stephens argues for American reengagement abroad. He explains how military intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan was the right course of action, foolishly executed. He traces the intellectual continuity between anti-interventionist statesmen such as Henry Wallace and Robert Taft in the late 1940s and Barack Obama and Rand Paul today. And he makes an unapologetic case for Pax Americana, “a world in which English is the default language of business, diplomacy, tourism, and technology; in which markets are global, capital is mobile, and trade is increasingly free; in which values of openness and tolerance are, when not the norm, often the aspiration.”

 

In a terrifying chapter imagining the world of 2019, Stephens shows what could lie in store if Americans continue on their current course. Yet we are not doomed to this future. Stephens makes a passionate rejoinder to those who argue that America is in decline, a process that is often beyond the reach of political cures. Instead, we are in retreat—the result of faulty, but reversible, policy choices. By embracing its historic responsibility as the world’s policeman, America can safeguard not only greater peace in the world but also greater prosperity at home.

 

At once lively and sobering, America in Retreat offers trenchant analysis of the gravest threat to global order, from a rising star of political commentary.

Robert Haddick, -Fire on the Water: China, America, and the Future of the Pacific,- Eight Bells Book Lecture, Naval War College Museum, Oct. 23, 2014.

 

Fire on the Water contends that much of the general public and many U.S. policy experts are unaware of the threat that China's military modernization poses to America's national interests in the Asia-Pacific region. The author maintains that within a decade China will have the military power to place U.S. influence throughout East Asia at risk. With that in mind, and to avoid a future crisis, the United States needs to fashion a new and more competitive strategy, one that better matches the strengths of the United States and its allies against China's vulnerabilities.

America- Imagine a World without Her by Dinesh D'Souza

 

Overview of the Documentary-

Conceived in liberty...

...or in oppression?

 

Is America a source of pride, as Americans have long held, or shame, as Progressives allege? Beneath an innocent exterior, are our lives complicit in a national project of theft, expropriation, oppression, and murder, or is America still the hope of the world?

 

New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza says these questions are no mere academic exercise. It is the Progressive view that is taught in our schools, that is preached by Hollywood, and that shapes the policies of the Obama administration. If America is a force for inequality and injustice in the world, its power deserves to be diminished; if traditional America is based on oppression and theft, then traditional America must be reformed—and the federal government can do the reforming.

 

D'Souza, an Indian immigrant to this country, and proud American citizen, fears for America's future. He loves this country and fears that unless the Progressives' anti-American arguments are met forcibly and on their own terms, America will cease to be the beacon of freedom and hope that it always has been.

 

In America: Imagine a World without Her D'Souza offers a passionate and sharply reasoned defense of America, knocking down every important accusation made by Progressives against our country. In this book, you'll learn:

Why it is a pernicious myth that English colonists "stole" America from the Indians or that American settlers and soldiers "stole" the southwest from Mexico

Why the descendants of slaves—and the successive waves of immigrants to the United States—are better off here than in their old countries

How America, more than any other country, is based on rewarding the enterprise and hard-work of the common man

How traditional American virtues sustain prosperity and freedom, and Progressive arguments about "liberation" and "justice" undercut them

How Progressive demagoguery about "inequality" expands the power of government and its grasp on the taxpayer's wallet

Why we should fear the Progressive agenda of "reform" which is in fact an agenda of totalitarian control of the state over the individual

Why national decline is a choice—a choice that it is still not too late to reverse

 

Provocative in its analysis, stunning in its conclusions, Dinesh D'Souza's America will be the most talked about book of the year.
