Show 573   7 Events that Made America America: And Proved that the Founding Fathers Were Right All Along  by Larry Schweikart. Michael Medved talks to author.

 

Synopsis- The bestselling author of A Patriot's History of the United States examines some of the pivotal—yet mostly ignored—moments that shaped our history.

 

Every schoolchild is taught the great turning points in American history, such as Gettysburg, Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy assassination, and 9/11. But other, equally significant events have altered our destiny without being understood—or even widely noticed.

 

Acclaimed conservative historian Larry Schweikart now takes an in-depth look at seven such episodes and reveals the profound ways they have shaped America. He also asks readers to reconsider them not just in terms of what happened, but in light of the Founding Fathers' vision for our nation. What would Washington, Jefferson, or Madison have said about these events?

 

In the same reader-friendly style of his previous bestsellers, A Patriot's History of the United States and 48 Liberal Lies About American History, Professor Schweikart doesn't merely recount our history—he forces us to rethink what makes our country great. He shows how individual liberty, private enterprise, and small government helped build a free and prosperous nation. Conversely, whenever these values have been threatened by big government, oppressive taxes, and special interests, we lose sight of the principles that made us strong.

 

You'll be surprised to learn how these events spurred sweeping changes that still affect us today. For instance:

 

Martin Van Buren's consolidation of the first national political party made it possible for Barack Obama to get elected almost two centuries later

Dwight Eisenhower's heart attack led to a war on red meat, during which the government took control over Americans' diets

The rock'n'roll craze (often mistakenly claimed as a liberal phenomenon) helped bring about the decline of communism and the fall of the Soviet Union

In this time of national uncertainty, it has never been more important for Americans to understand what has shaped our national destiny. This provocative book will enlighten anyone looking for clarity about our past and inspiration for our future.

Show 572 Book- Never Enough:America's Limitless Welfare State. Michael Medved talks to William Voegeli, contributing editor to the Claremont Review. The author  contends that liberals will not engage in a discussion over the ultimate size of a welfare state and the neglect of this question hurts future generations in his book Never Enough:America's Limitless Welfare State

 

Synopsis of the book- Since the beginning of the New Deal, American liberals have insisted that the government must do more-much more-to help the poor, to increase economic security, to promote social justice and solidarity, to reduce inequality, and to mitigate the harshness of capitalism. Nonetheless, liberals have never answered, or even acknowledged, the corresponding question: What would be the size and nature of a welfare state that was not contemptibly austere, that did not urgently need new programs, bigger budgets, and a broader mandate? Even though the federal government's outlays have doubled every eighteen years since 1940, liberal rhetoric is always addressed to a nation trapped in Groundhog Day, where every year is 1932, and none of the existing welfare state programs that spend tens of billions of dollars matter, or even exist.

 

Never Enough explores the roots and consequences of liberals' aphasia about the welfare state's ultimate size. It assesses what liberalism's lack of a limiting principle says about the long-running argument between liberals and conservatives, and about the policy choices confronting America in a new century. Never Enough argues that the failure to speak clearly and candidly about the welfare state's limits has grave policy consequences. The worst result, however, is the way it has jeopardized the experiment in self-government by encouraging Americans to regard their government as a vehicle for exploiting their fellow-citizens, rather than as a compact for respecting one another's rights and safeguarding the opportunities of future generations.

Show 566 Book- The Blueprint - Barack Obama's Agenda For An Unconstitutional America. Michael Medved talks to author.

 

Authors Ken Blackwell (a former secretary of state of the U.S. state of Ohio and current Vice Chairman of the Republican National Committee's Platform Committee) and Ken Klukowski (a fellow and senior legal analyst with the American Civil Rights Union) have just released a book -The Blueprint: Obama's Plan to Subvert the Constitution and Build an Imperial Presidency - in which the facts, profiles of Czars, and actions proposed ... or have already taken place, should make every American wake up in the middle of the night in a pool of cold sweat.

 

This post is not so much a book review but a call to one's voting and political organizing sensibilities (such as they are for the average freedom loving, life pursuing citizen). It is time to hold firm to the structure laid down in the founding document of a country that grew to become the most powerful governed country in the world ... and the only one based upon rights granted through GOD and not the humans in Government as Barack Obama and the "Progressives" in both the Democrat and Republican political parties would have everyone believe.

 

Simply stated, in this book, Ken Blackwell and Washington, D.C. based constitutional attorney Ken Klukowski, identify a pattern of unconstitutional acts that form Obama's plan to build a big-government collectivist society on the ruins of our Founding Fathers' nation - ruins, that this executive branch of the 44th Presidency purposely creates.

 

Barack Obama promised, after he was elected posturing as a center-left candidate, to "fundamentally transform" America while he worked as our nation's president. But one thing stands in his way: The Constitution of the United States. For Obama to remake our country into what he wants it to be, he must execute an aggressive strategy to subvert key parts of the Constitution that are designed to protect us ... all of us ... from our own government. He plans to become the first president of an imperial presidency without checks or balances.

This excerpted and edited from the National Review -

 

In The Blueprint, Blackwell and Klukoswi identify and discuss 21 tactics being taken by the Obama administration to restructure the country and ensure perpetual liberal rule -- such as changing voting laws, politicizing the census, coercing corporations into adopting its policies, planning to destroy talk radio, and seeking to make millions of illegal aliens into voting citizens. The authors also show how each of these 21 tactics violate the Constitution -- and what conservatives can do to fight back.

 

Some of the 21 tactics President Obama is using to subvert the Constitution and "transform" America:

 

* The Czars: How Obama is creating a "shadow government" by appointing dozens of powerful executive officials -- many of them radicals -- that are not Senate-confirmed, are outside congressional oversight, and report only to him

 

* The Courts: How Obama is packing the courts with judges who share his far-left vision of the Constitution -- and is also working to expand the lower courts to pack them with dozens of new judges who would dominate the courts for a generation

 

* Executive orders: The sweeping changes in law Obama is enacting through administrative rulemaking and executive orders, end-running the legislative process

 

* Domestic army: What Obama, his Chief of Staff, and the First Lady have said about his plans to create a civilian security force as large and well-funded as the U.S. military -- and which would answer to Obama alone

 

* Healthcare: How the bill just passed by Congress is just the first step in Obama's plan to take over the entire American healthcare system

 

* Cap and Trade: How Obama is pushing for a job-killing carbon emission control system to give the government enormous power over the entire economy

 

* Stimulus: How Obama is using stimulus bills to engage in massive wealth redistribution and permanently grow government with new taxpayer-funded programs

 

* Taxes: How Obama is shifting the tax burden to less than half of the population, so that a majority of voters has nothing to lose by supporting higher taxes on the rest

 

* Elections: How Obama wants to grant citizenship to every illegal alien in the United States, making them all voters with the expectation that they will vote for bigger government, paid for by higher taxes on others

 

* Card check: How Obama wants to abolish secret ballots in businesses voting on whether to unionize -- opening the door to massive intimidation to enormously increase the size of labor unions in America

 

* Guns: How Obama wants to radically restrict gun ownership in the United States.

“With their characteristic style, Ken Blackwell and Ken Klukowski offer compelling arguments and insights demonstrating that much of President Obama’s agenda undermines our Constitution and America’s system of limited government that keeps us free.”

—Edwin Meese III, Former Attorney General of the United States and Counselor to President Ronald Reagan

 

“Ken Blackwell and Ken Klukowski do an outstanding job showing how much of President Obama’s agenda, which is undermining America’s families, also violates our constitutional rights. This is a must read!”

—Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council

 

“The Blueprint proves beyond a doubt that much of Barack Obama’s power grab is more than just terrible for our economy; it’s unconstitutional. Share this book with your friends.”

Show 565 Gross National Happiness. Why Happiness Matters for America—and How We Can Get More of It—and How We Can Get More of It by Arthur C. Brooks

Richard Land of For Faith and Family radio talks to author.

 

About the book- Who are the happiest Americans? Surveys show that religious people think they are happier than secularists, and secularists think they are happier than religious people. Liberals believe they are happier than conservatives, and conservatives disagree. In fact, almost every group thinks it is happier than everyone else. In this provocative new book, Arthur C. Brooks explodes the myths about happiness in America. As he did in the controversial Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism, Brooks examines vast amounts of evidence and empirical research to uncover the truth about who is happy in America, who is not, and-most important-why. He finds that there is a real “happiness gap” in America today, and it lies disconcertingly close to America’s cultural and political fault lines. The great divide between the happy and the unhappy in America, Brooks shows, is largely due to differences in social and cultural values. The values that bring happiness are faith, charity, hard work, optimism, and individual liberty. Secularism, excessive reliance on the state to solve problems, and an addiction to security all promote unhappiness. What can be done to maximize America’s happiness? Replete with the unconventional wisdom for which Brooks has come to be known, Gross National Happiness offers surprising and illuminating conclusions about how our government can best facilitate Americans in their pursuit of happiness.

  

Arthur C. Brooks is Louis A. Bantle Professor of Business and Government Policy at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. The author of Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism, Brooks writes widely about the connections between culture, politics, and economic life in America, and his work appears frequently in the Wall Street Journal and other publications. He is a native of Seattle, Washington, and currently lives in Syracuse, New York, with his wife Ester and their three children.

Show 564 Book Crisis and Command. A History of Executive Power from George Washington to George W. Bush   Medved talks to author Professor John Yoo. Michael Medved Show March 3 2010.

Description of book- An American President faces war and finds himself hamstrung by a Congress that will not act. To protect national security, he invokes his powers as Commander-in-Chief and orders actions that seem to violate laws enacted by Congress. He is excoriated for usurping dictatorial powers, placing himself above the law, and threatening to “breakdown constitutional safeguards.”

One could be forgiven for thinking that the above describes former President George W. Bush. Yet these particular attacks on presidential power were leveled against Franklin D. Roosevelt. They could just as well describe similar attacks leveled against George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln and a number of other presidents challenged with leading the nation through times of national crisis.

However bitter, complex, and urgent today’s controversies over executive power may be, John Yoo reminds us they are nothing new. In Crisis and Command, he explores a factor too little consulted in current debates: the past. Through shrewd and lucid analysis, he shows how the bold decisions made by Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, and FDR changed more than just history; they also transformed the role of the American president. The link between the vigorous exercise of executive power and presidential greatness, Yoo argues, is both significant and misunderstood. He makes the case that the founding fathers deliberately left the Constitution vague on the limits of presidential authority, drawing on history to demonstrate the benefi ts to the nation of a strong executive office.

Show 561 First, Dennis Prager talks to Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House, Chairman of American Solutions, and senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. His new book is To Save America: Stopping Obama's Secular-Socialist Machine.

Next, Michael Medved talks to author. 

 

EXPOSED by Newt Gingrich: the corrupt, ruthless radical Left's plan to transform America into a weak secular-socialist state -- and how we can stop this plan now

To Save America: Stopping Obama's Secular-Socialist Machine

by Newt Gingrich

"America as we know it," says Newt Gingrich, "is now facing a mortal threat." The Left, he explains, is ignoring the lessons of history and moving further into ideological extremism -- reacting to their meager popular support by seeking to impose a corrupt, Chicago-style political machine on the entire country. The leftwing Democrats who currently control the White House, the House of Representatives, the Senate, and many state capitals are committed to a secular-socialist ideology that is alien to America's history and traditions.

 

"This danger to America," Gingrich says, "is greater than anything I dreamed possible after we won the Cold War, and the Soviet Union disappeared in December 1991. We now face a dire threat to America here at home. We stand at a crossroads: either we will save our country or we will lose it.” That's why he wrote To Save America: Stopping Obama's Secular-Socialist Machine.

 

The Left, Gingrich explains, has expanded their power through their control of academia, the elite news media, union leaders, trial lawyers, the bureaucracy, the courts, and lobbyists at the state and federal levels. They share a vision of a secular, socialist America run for the interests of the members of the political machine that keeps them in power. It will be an America where government dominates the people rather than represents them. In short, they want to use government power to change who we are and how we think. And Barack Obama is working hard to impose that vision upon America right now.

 

Gingrich explains why "secular-socialist machine" is the only way to describe the Left; exposes the lies that Leftists have told America; explores the secular-socialist machine's health bill disaster and involvement in ACORN's vote fraud; and even details why Big Business and the secular-socialist machine are not enemies, but are actually natural allies. He exposes the Left's immense corruption as well, including the corruption of climate science and corruption at the United Nations.

 

But that is not all: Gingrich offers a plan to defeat the secular-socialist regime and herald a new era of America prosperity in which small businesses flourish, the entitlement state is dismantled, better healthcare is available at a lower cost (without healthcare fraud), religious liberty is protected, and the education crisis is solved. It's a bold vision for a bold people -- and the need for it is urgent. "The secular-socialist machine," Gingrich argues persuasively, "represents as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union once did." That's why saving America is the fundamental challenge of our time -- and To Save America essential reading for anyone who loves America.

 

 Gingrich sounds the alarm:

 

How the America in which we grew up is vastly different from the America the secular-socialist Left wants to create

 

Barack Obama: how everything we cherish about America is something he thinks is not so special, not so very different from any other country

 

How, if the Left stays in power, it will transform America into a radically different nation -- a union- dominated, bureaucratically controlled, high-tax, low- growth country in which powerful politicians impose their will on an exhausted, submissive citizenry

 

Why we must repeal the 2010 big-government healthcare "reform" -- passed on a narrow partisan basis with extraordinary corruption and bribery -- and start over in the right direction with the right policies

 

How the U.S. government traditionally regarded the protection of American lives as its top priority: our primary concern with captured terrorists (or pirates, their old equivalent) was interrogating them and using that information to stop further attacks – but now the secular socialists want to give our enemies the same constitutional protections we afford our own citizens, effectively placing the rights of terrorists ahead of the lives of Americans

 

The extremist environmental movement: how it asserts that we will soon face global warming-induced environmental catastrophes that can only be avoided by forcing Western capitalist nations, especially America, to adopt devastating energy taxes, ruinous new environmental regulations, and a massive wealth transfer to developing countries (a mantra that has become so popular both among the American Left and abroad that even Osama bin Laden in a recent recording thought he could win converts by blaming the West for global warming) -- but how this narrative fails to recognize that capitalist democracies are among the most environmentally conscious nations in the world

 

The Left's challenge to American exceptionalism -- the idea that America has a special mission to protect and spread freedom: for the secular-socialist Left, however, America is an exploitive, imperialist aggressor, and that the U.S. military is an evil tool of corporate interests

 

The secular-socialist machine's values: how they differ from traditional American values: while Americans have always respected hard work, entrepreneurship, innovation, and merit-based upward mobility, the Leftist machine rewards its members, punishes "overachievers," kills jobs by over-taxing small businesses, and even exploits your death to tax the savings you hope to pass on to your children and grandchildren

 

Why the UN tolerates corruption: it's viewed as another way to transfer wealth from developed to developing countries

 

Healthcare: innovative, practical reforms to enable Americans to build a system that is available, affordable, and appropriate for every citizen

 

God in America: how, while traditional America was based on a profound belief that "we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights," secular socialists are so opposed to God in public life that they can't tolerate school prayer or even allow a cross to stand in the middle of the Mojave Desert

Show 560 Rendezvous with Destiny: Ronald Reagan and the Campaign That Changed America by Craig Shirley. Michael Medved talks to author.

 

In his previous, widely praised book, Reagan’s Revolution, Craig Shirley told the story of Ronald Reagan’s insurgent campaign to wrest the GOP nomination from Gerald Ford in 1976. Now, in Rendezvous with Destiny: Ronald Reagan and the Campaign That Changed America, Shirley tells the tale of Reagan’s triumph. By tracing the path from Reagan’s defeat on the convention floor in 1976 to his ultimate victory on election night in 1980, Shirley shows in gripping detail how Reagan’s unshakeable hopefulness and conservative convictions led to a most unlikely presidency. Shirley explores the Gipper’s underreported wilderness years (1976–79) and follows him as Reagan hones his message, assembles his team, and launches his bid for the White House amid the inflation crisis, the Panama Canal fight, and Jimmy Carter’s era of malaise. To write Rendezvous with Destiny Shirley gained unprecedented access to 1980 campaign files and conducted more than two hundred insider interviews. The result is the first comprehensive history of the hard-fought 1980 primaries and crucial general election campaign. Reagan’s quest for the presidency was an often lonely one, Shirley reveals. This is the story of how Reagan successfully battled the headwinds of the national media, the Republican Party establishment, and even his own campaign team to become one of America’s greatest chief executives.
