Show 1271 Hugh Hewitt Inside ISIS and Fox News Special  Unholy War - The March Of ISIS

 Segment 1- Hugh Hewitt talks with Benjamin Hall, New York Times and Sunday Times of London contributor, and Author, Inside ISIS- The Brutal Rise of a Terrorist Army. March 23, 2015 by Hugh Hewitt Radio

Segment 2- Fox News Special  Unholy War - The March Of ISIS  39 minutes.

To watch this free video visit-

https://youtu.be/XlhACDSwk74

 

Overview of the book-

A year ago, few people had heard of ISIS-- today, they are a major terrorist threat.

 

Despite numerous warnings from intelligence services, ISIS's rise to power has left countries around the world floundering for solutions. Today, we face a threat that is more violent, powerful and financially stronger than ever before. In this book, Journalist Benjamin Hall will provide insights by answering the basic questions we still don't have the answers to; Who are they? Where did they come from? How are they so successful, so quickly? How can they be stopped?

By embedding himself behind enemy lines, Hall provides a riveting narrative based on firsthand experience and personal interviews. He goes beyond the vicious jihadis, to reveal a generation of chaos, and uncover a volatile region engulfed in turmoil. Hall reveals why ISIS is a problem that will define the Middle East - and the West - for decades to come.

Show 1268 Prager University part 12.

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. Why America Invaded Iraq

Published on Mar 9, 2015

Why did America invade Iraq in 2003? Was it for oil? Or was it because Saddam Hussein was a mass-murdering dictator who harbored terrorists and threatened the region with Weapons of Mass Destruction? If it was the former, wouldn't it have been a lot easier to just buy Iraq's oil on the open market? And if it was the latter, why did Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and John Kerry support President Bush? Noted British historian, Andrew Roberts, has the answers.

2. Does Science Argue for or against God?

Published on Feb 9, 2015

Why are we here? Literally. The latest science says we shouldn’t be. It says that the chance life exists at all is less than zero. So, is science the greatest threat to the idea of Intelligent Design or is science its greatest advocate? Best-selling author and lecturer, Eric Metaxas, poses this intriguing question and comes up with a very unexpected and challenging answer.

https://youtu.be/UjGPHF5A6Po

 

3. Do the Rich Pay Their Fair Share?

Published on Feb 16, 2015

Do the rich pay their fair share of taxes? It's not a simple question. First of all, what do you mean by rich? And how much is fair? What are the rich, whoever they are, paying now? Is there any tax rate that would be unfair? UCLA Professor of Economics, Lee Ohanian, has some fascinating and unexpected answers.

https://youtu.be/DnEe4oaSC88

 

4. How Dark Were the Dark Ages?

Published on Jan 26, 2015

Were the Middle Ages, also known as the Dark Ages, characterized by oppression, ignorance, and backwardness in areas like human rights, science, health, and the arts? Or were they marked by progress and tolerance? Anthony Esolen, an English Literature professor at Providence College, explains.

https://youtu.be/Cqzq01i2O3U

 

5. Myths, Lies and Capitalism

Published on Jan 19, 2015

Does free enterprise hurt the poor? Is it unfair and driven by greed? Did it cause the Great Recession? In five minutes, Arthur Brooks answers these questions and more about capitalism.

https://youtu.be/7_7Jv2oh9s4

 

6. He Wants You

Published on Mar 2, 2015

Men look at pretty women. That goes for men who are married, men who are dating, and men who are single. That's their nature. But is this built-in attraction with the female body a threat to their spouse, girlfriend, or partner?

https://youtu.be/dlZsGpWJmos

 

7. Pakistan: Can Sharia and Freedom Coexist?

Published on Feb 2, 2015

Pakistan is the world’s fifth largest democracy. It is also deeply influenced by Islamic law (Sharia). Can these two traditions, Western Liberal democracy and Sharia, co-exist? If so, how? And if not, what are the consequences? Haroon Ullah, foreign policy professor at Georgetown University, has some fascinating and sobering answers.

https://youtu.be/nPG4H3XUX1Q

 

8. Israel's Legal Founding

Published on Feb 23, 2015

When the state of Israel was founded in 1948, it was done so with the approval of the United Nations. But today, Israel's enemies routinely challenge the legitimacy of its very existence. So, under international law, who's right? Israel? Or its enemies?

https://youtu.be/12KJa4a0d64

 

9. Are Israeli Settlements the Barrier to Peace?

Published on Jan 12, 2015

Is Israel's policy of building civilian communities in the West Bank the reason there's no peace agreement with the Palestinians? Or would there still be no peace even if Israel removed all of its settlements and evicted Israeli settlers, as it did in Gaza in 2005? Renowned Harvard professor and legal scholar Alan Dershowitz explains.

Show 1262 Audiobook-The Liberty Amendments by Mark R. Levin

 This audio excerpt of the book is chapters 1 and 3.  It is 64 minutes in length.

 In his #1 bestsellers Liberty and Tyranny and Ameritopia, Mark R. Levin has all but predicted the current assault on our individual liberties, state sovereignty, and the social compact—the inevitable result of an all-powerful, ubiquitous central government. Fortunately, such dire circumstances were anticipated by the Founding Fathers, who gave us the means to amend the Constitution in order to preserve our rights and pre­vent governmental behemoths. Here, Levin turns to the Constitution and its Framers to lay forth eleven specific prescriptions, thoughtfully con­structed within the Framers’ design, for restoring the American Republic. His proposals are pure common sense, ideas shared by many—such as term limits for members of Congress and Supreme Court justices and lim­its on federal taxing and spending—that draw on the wisdom of James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and others. With The Liberty Amendments, the American people can take the first step toward reclaiming what belongs to them.

 Please purchase the book at Amazon or from Audible.

Show 1256 Prager University 10 Commandment Series.

Still the Best Moral Code

Humanity has everything it needs to create a good world. We've had it for 3,000 years. It's the Ten Commandments; ten basic, yet profound instructions for how to lead a moral life. If everyone followed the Ten Commandments, we would not need armies or police; marriages and families would be stronger; truth would be a paramount value. Dennis Prager explains how the Ten Commandments led to the creation of Western Civilization and why they remain relevant to your life today. This video course introduces a ten-part series.

 

1. I Am the Lord Your God

God Wants Us to Be Free

Although the First Commandment ("I am the Lord your God") appears simple at first glance, it actually set into motion the most revolutionary idea in human history -- ethical monotheism, the belief that there is one God whose main wish is that people treat each other decently. Dennis Prager explains that without this commandment, the following nine mean little. With it, the Ten Commandments becomes world-changing.

 

2. No Other Gods

There Are More Idols than Ever

Today, the idea of idol worship feels ancient and remote to many people. Thus, the Second Commandment, "You shall have no other gods," doesn't seem applicable in modern society. But the opposite is true. We have more false gods than ever -- art, education, fame, money, to name just a few. Over the past century the worship of false gods has led to massive evil; Communism and Nazism are just two examples. On a personal level, the worship of false gods leads to unhappiness.

 

3. Do Not Misuse God’s Name

The Worst Sin You Can Commit

Not all sins are equal. Some are worse than others. The worst of one of all? Committing evil in the name of God. This commandment is often misunderstood because it's mistranslated. It's not concerned with saying God's name "in vain" like "God, did I have a terrible day at the office." It's about using God's name in the commission of evil. We see this today when Islamists invoke God's name while they murder innocent people.

 

4. Remember the Sabbath

Don’t Be a Slave

Setting aside a day of rest each week was a revolutionary concept when it was first introduced as the Fourth Commandment. But this Commandment does more: it extends that day of rest to slaves and animals and thus set in motion the slow process of ending slavery and the compassionate treatment of animals. As Dennis Prager explains, the power of the Fourth Commandment to change your life is no less real today than it was for our ancient ancestors. Just ask the spouse of a workaholic how she would feel if her husband took off a day each week to spend with family and friends.

 

5. Honor Your Father and Mother

 Even if You don’t Feel Like It

Children owe their parents one thing. And no, it's not love. The Fifth Commandment understands that sometimes it's difficult or even impossible to love your parents. But it's almost always possible to honor them. Dennis Prager explains what that means and why it's so important. And consider this: if your children see you honoring your parents they are much more likely to honor you.

Show 1255 The Triple Package- How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups in America

by Amy Chua  and Jed Rubenfeld 

 

Michael Medved talks to the authors.

 

About the book-

That certain groups do much better in America than others—as measured by income, occupational status, test scores, and so on—is difficult to talk about. In large part this is because the topic feels racially charged. The irony is that the facts actually debunk racial stereotypes. There are black and Hispanic subgroups in the United States far outperforming many white and Asian subgroups. Moreover, there’s a demonstrable arc to group success—in immigrant groups, it typically dissipates by the third generation—puncturing the notion of innate group differences and undermining the whole concept of  model minorities.

 

Mormons have recently risen to astonishing business success. Cubans in Miami climbed from poverty to prosperity in a generation. Nigerians earn doctorates at stunningly high rates. Indian and Chinese Americans have much higher incomes than other Americans; Jews may have the highest of all.

 

Why do some groups rise? Drawing on groundbreaking original research and startling statistics, The Triple Package uncovers the secret to their success. A superiority complex, insecurity, impulse control—these are the elements of the Triple Package, the rare and potent cultural constellation that drives disproportionate group success. The Triple Package is open to anyone. America itself was once a Triple Package culture. It’s been losing that edge for a long time now. Even as headlines proclaim the death of upward mobility in America, the truth is that the old fashioned American Dream is very much alive—but some groups have a cultural edge, which enables them to take advantage of opportunity far more than others.

 

•   Americans are taught that everyone is equal, that no group is superior to another. But remarkably, all of America’s most successful groups believe (even

if they don’t say so aloud) that they’re exceptional, chosen, superior in some way.

•   Americans are taught that self-esteem—feeling good about yourself—is the key to a successful life. But in all of America’s most successful groups,

people tend to feel insecure, inadequate, that they have to prove themselves.

•   America today spreads a message of immediate gratification, living for the moment. But all of America’s most successful groups cultivate heightened discipline and impulse control.

 

But the Triple Package has a dark underside too. Each of its elements carries distinctive pathologies; when taken to an extreme, they can have truly toxic effects. Should people strive for the Triple Package? Should America? Ultimately, the authors conclude that the Triple Package is a ladder that should be climbed and then kicked away, drawing on its power but breaking free from its constraints.

 

Provocative and profound, The Triple Package will transform the way we think about success and achievement.

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.
