Show 1393 Dennis Prager Deconstructs President Obamas Paris Global Warming Conference Speech

Segment 2- The President went over his allotted time during his speech to the Paris Global Warming Conference. That’s a lot of hot air 

Segment 3- Dennis Prager continues to deconstruct the President’s speech in Paris… Dennis talks to James Delingpole, columnist for Breitbart.com and the London Spectator. Delingpole is in Paris.

Show 1390 Men of War- The American Soldier in Combat at Bunker Hill, Gettysburg, and Iwo Jima by Alexander Rose

 Exploring the idea that combat encompasses both unadulterated terror and grinding boredom, Alexander Rose visits to discuss his unforgettable chronicle investigating the experience of battle as seen through the eyes of American soldiers at Bunker Hill (1775), Gettysburg (1863), and Iwo Jima (1945). Sponsored by Random House.

Record date: Thursday, October 15, 2015

 This is not a book about how great generals won their battles, nor is it a study in grand strategy. Men of War is instead a riveting, visceral, and astonishingly original look at ordinary soldiers under fire.

Drawing on an immense range of firsthand sources from the battlefield, Alexander Rose begins by re-creating the lost and alien world of eighteenth-century warfare at Bunker Hill, the bloodiest clash of the War of Independence—and reveals why the American militiamen were so lethally effective against the oncoming waves of British troops. Then, focusing on Gettysburg, Rose describes a typical Civil War infantry action, vividly explaining what Union and Confederate soldiers experienced before, during, and after combat. Finally, he shows how in 1945 the Marine Corps hurled itself with the greatest possible violence at the island of Iwo Jima, where nearly a third of all Marines killed in World War II would die. As Rose demonstrates, the most important factor in any battle is the human one: At Bunker Hill, Gettysburg, and Iwo Jima, the American soldier, as much as any general, proved decisive.

 To an unprecedented degree, Men of War brings home the reality of combat and, just as important, its aftermath in the form of the psychological and medical effects on veterans. As such, the book makes a critical contribution to military history by narrowing the colossal gulf between the popular understanding of wars and the experiences of the soldiers who fight them.

 ALEXANDER ROSE is the author of Washington’s Spies: The Story of America’s First Spy Ring, which inspired the AMC original series 'TURN: Washington’s Spies,' and American Rifle: A Biography. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and other publications.

Show 1389 Prager University Part 15 

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.

 

Campaign Finance Reform Corrupts by George Will

What corrupts politics more: Millionaires and billionaires? Or the rules that intend to limit the influence of wealthy donors? George Will, author and Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for the Washington Post, explains who designed campaign finance reform and why Congress's solution to the problem may actually be the bigger problem.

 

Left but Really Right

Successful liberals live by conservative values. It's true. The liberal musician, the liberal chef, the liberal writer--all swear by things conservatives love, like competition, earned reward, and, yes, profit and the bottom line. Greg Gutfeld, bestselling author of, "How To Be Right: The Art of Being Persuasively Correct", explains. Order "How to Be Right" at http://ggutfeld.com/books/\death of liberal arts  

 

Who Killed the Liberal Arts?

What in the world happened to the liberal arts? A degree in the humanities used to transmit the knowledge and wisdom imbued in the works of great Western artists, writers, musicians and thinkers like Shakespeare and Mozart. But today, that same degree stresses Western racism, sexism, imperialism, and other ills and sins that reinforce a sense of victimhood and narcissism. So, what happened? Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute explains.

 

Radical Islam: The Most Dangerous Ideology

Is radical Islam our generation's most dangerous ideology? Is it comparable to what Nazism and Communism were in the 20th century? Or are Islamists no more dangerous than extremist Christians, Jews, and Buddhists? Raymond Ibrahim, author of "The Al Qaeda Reader," explains what radical Islam is, and shows how Muslims and non-Muslims alike can help defeat it.

 

Why the Right is Right

What makes conservatism right? If you're a conservative, you should know why you're right. If you're not a conservative, why should you think about becoming one? Greg Gutfeld, bestselling author of, "How To Be Right: The Art of Being Persuasively Correct", explains. PRE-ORDER "How To Be Right" : http://ggutfeld.com/books

 

Why We're Losing Liberty

Was the Constitution written in a way that was designed to protect freedom and limit the government's size? Has it been effective in doing that? And what's the Supreme Court's record when it comes to protecting our rights? Robert George, Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University, answers these questions and more.

 

Game of Loans

Why does student debt keep going up and up even as it's harder and harder to find a good job with a college degree? And why does it seem that the more aid the government and colleges give, the less it helps? Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA, shows how politicians and universities have saddled students with dangerous debt...and with little to show for it.

 

Is Capitalism Moral?

Is capitalism moral or greedy? If it's based on greed and selfishness, what's the best alternative economic system? Perhaps socialism? And if capitalism is moral, what makes it so? Walter Williams, a renowned economist at George Mason University, answers these questions and more.

 

Rockefeller: The Richest American Who Ever Lived

Was America's first billionaire, John D. Rockefeller, a greedy robber baron, a generous philanthropist, or both? And did the oil tycoon exploit America's poor or give them access to much-needed energy? Historian and Hillsdale College professor Burt Folsom, author of "The Myth of the Robber Barons," reveals the truth about the Rockefeller empire.

 

Is Honesty Always the Best Policy?

Telling the truth is usually right. But can it also sometimes be wrong? If so, when? And why? Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, a bestselling author and renowned scholar, explains when honesty isn't the best policy.

 

Can We Rely on Wind and Solar Energy?

Is "green" energy, particularly wind and solar energy, the solution to our climate and energy problems? Or should we be relying on things like natural gas, nuclear energy, and even coal for our energy needs and environmental obligations? Alex Epstein of the Center for Industrial Progress explains.

Learn about Alex Epstein's book, "The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels". http://www.moralcaseforfossilfuels.com/

 

Why You Should Love Fossil Fuel

Every year on Earth Day we learn how bad humanity's economic development is for the health of the planet. But maybe this is the wrong message. Maybe we should instead reflect on how human progress, even use of fossil fuels, has made our environment cleaner and healthier. Alex Epstein of the Center for Industrial Progress explains.

Show 1380 Thomas Sowell’s new book Wealth, Poverty, and Politics- An International Perspective.

 This is a 70 minute excerpt from the audio book and serves as an introduction to this truly great book. Purchase at Amazon or Audible. Highly recommended by ACU. A must have in every Conservative Library.

 Book Description-  In Wealth, Poverty, and Politics, Thomas Sowell, one of the foremost conservative public intellectuals in this country, argues that political and ideological struggles have led to dangerous confusion about income inequality in America. Pundits and politically motivated economists trumpet ambiguous statistics and sensational theories while ignoring the true determinant of income inequality: the production of wealth. We cannot properly understand inequality if we focus exclusively on the distribution of wealth and ignore wealth production factors such as geography, demography, and culture. Sowell contends that liberals have a particular interest in misreading the data and chastises them for using income inequality as an argument for the welfare state. Refuting Thomas Piketty, Paul Krugman, and others on the left, Sowell draws on accurate empirical data to show that the inequality is not nearly as extreme or sensational as we have been led to believe. Transcending partisanship through a careful examination of data, Wealth, Poverty, and Politics reveals the truth about the most explosive political issue of our time.

Show 1374 Documentary- Atomic Jihad   Ahmadinejad's Coming War For Islamic Revival And Obama's Politics. 2010.  Director: Joel Gilbert

 This is ACUs audio version of the video documentary. 

Overview of the film-

Filmmaker Joel Gilbert weighs President Barack Obama's pledge to make peace with the Muslim world against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's quest to spark a global Muslim revival that seeks to impose Sharia law on a global scale. At the time of the Islamic Revolution, Muslim society had been in a state of decline for nearly three centuries. For President Ahmadinejad, Islam represents the path of purity, peace, and justice as opposed to the Western path of greed, oppression, and hypocrisy. When President Obama came into office with the pledge of building "a new beginning with the Muslim world" and vowing to use diplomacy to settle our disagreements with Iran, skeptics argued that Islam wasn't simply in conflict with Western secular society, but in fact stood in direct opposition to it. Could it be that by attempting to appease Iran by enacting change in American foreign policy in the Middle East, President Obama is actually setting his own country up for defeat? In this documentary, director Gilbert encourages the viewer to consider which threat is worse - the enemy who seeks to bring us down, or the enemy within.

 Segment 1-  ThinkProgress, the heresy-hunting thought-control site, lashed out at Ted Cruz last week for advocating some kind of tie between the dollar and gold.

Show 1370 Audiobook  Escape from Camp 14- One Man's Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West by Blaine Harden

This is an excerpt from the audio book and serves as an introduction to the book. Purchase the book from Amazon or Audible.

The heartwrenching New York Times bestseller about the only known person born inside a North Korean prison camp to have escaped

North Korea’s political prison camps have existed twice as long as Stalin’s Soviet gulags and twelve times as long as the Nazi concentration camps. No one born and raised in these camps is known to have escaped. No one, that is, except Shin Dong-hyuk.

In Escape From Camp 14, Blaine Harden unlocks the secrets of the world’s most repressive totalitarian state through the story of Shin’s shocking imprisonment and his astounding getaway. Shin knew nothing of civilized existence—he saw his mother as a competitor for food, guards raised him to be a snitch, and he witnessed the execution of his mother and brother.

The late “Dear Leader” Kim Jong Il was recognized throughout the world, but his country remains sealed as his third son and chosen heir, Kim Jong Eun, consolidates power. Few foreigners are allowed in, and few North Koreans are able to leave. North Korea is hungry, bankrupt, and armed with nuclear weapons. It is also a human rights catastrophe. Between 150,000 and 200,000 people work as slaves in its political prison camps. These camps are clearly visible in satellite photographs, yet North Korea’s government denies they exist.

Harden’s harrowing narrative exposes this hidden dystopia, focusing on an extraordinary young man who came of age inside the highest security prison in the highest security state. Escape from Camp 14offers an unequalled inside account of one of the world’s darkest nations. It is a tale of endurance and courage, survival and hope.

Narrated by Gregory Peck.

Lee B. Groberg, Director.

 

Video Documentary Description-

Millions of people around the world know of him. Yet this frontier prophet of the early 1800's found little honor and eventual martyrdom at thehands of an angry mob in his own country. Who was this Joseph Smith and what was it about his remarkable life story, which inspired such impassioned rancor or unfliching reverence? Join Academy Award winner Gregory Peck for a fascinating look at this oft-misunderstood legend.

 

About the Director

Groberg has an impressive filmography and a growing list of accolades from the film and television industry. Recognized and honored by The Film Advisory Board, the US International Film & Video Festival, and the organization that bestows The Telly Awards, which honor outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs as well as the finest video and film productions, Groberg has also been presented with a Utah Pioneers of Progress Award (2001) for his work in the historic and creative arts.
