Sanctions against a handful of Putin’s rich friends won’t end the violence in Ukraine. Besides, the sanctions aren’t really the sort of thing a freedom-loving nation should impose. (Actually… That might explain why Obama’s so darn excited about them.)

The Obama Administration was, apparently, “blindsided” by Israel’s decision to send ground forces into Gaza. (I guess they learned it on the news – which seems pretty par-for-the-course for this clueless Administration.)

Brace yourself: Obamanomics isn’t done making 2014 feel like the 1970s. Peter Morici joined the program to talk about the warning signs that the Federal Reserve seems to be ignoring.

John Hawkins, founder of rightwingnews.com, joined the show to talk about not only the size of government, but government’s inability to function under President Obama.

The Republican Party probably needs another Barry Goldwater before 2016… Lee Edwards spoke with John, from FreedomFest in Las Vegas, about the conservative roots of the modern Republican Party; and the role of the libertarian wing.

John Ransom spoke with Michael Steele about the message of the modern Republican Party. Also, Michael Schaus spoke about the impact of an over-bearing government – and how the shotgun manufacturer, Mossberg, is trying to avoid it.

The Federal Reserve seems to be completely abandoning its role as the reserve bank of the United States… And, of course, the rest of the government isn’t exactly doing a phenomenal job of boosting our economy. Steve Forbes spoke to John about the proper role of government in the free markets.

Live from FreedomFest 2014! John joins the airwaves from beautiful Las Vegas, to talk about the President’s uncanny ability to avoid doing actual work.

Katie Pavlich joined the program to talk about the “war on women” and her new book… Stunningly, she doesn’t seem to buy into the Obama-style gender wars…

The easiest way to dissolve our republic will be through prosecutorial discretion… And this Department of Justice seems to pretty much understand this concept. Sidney Powell, who spent a decade in the DOJ, joined the program to talk about Eric Holder’s culture of corruption.

Sure, the NSA is getting bigger… But they’re not the only ones that are watching. Have you used Google lately? Also, Mark Skousen joined the program to discuss the increasingly creepy nature of big business.

Posted July 01, 2014

Gayle Trotter, with the Independent Women’s Forum, joined the show to talk about the Hobby Lobby case against Obamacare… Big Government treats women like children, and the Left loves it.

Can you imagine a world were the media didn’t go out of its way to protect Barack Obama? Yeah… Neither can we. The good news is that it’s getting a whole lot more difficult for the media to run cover for this administration.

GDP for the first quarter of the year actually contracted by almost 3 percent. In other words: Our economy is so bad we can’t weather a winter – and Obamacare isn’t costing workers enough to “save” our GDP numbers. Hooray Obamanomics, right?

Posted June 25, 2014

To put it simply, Obama doesn’t care about your job, your house, your education, or your income… He cares about politicking, with you as a prop. America is ready for an economic comeback – we just need a competent leader or two in DC to pull back the bureaucratic curtain.

There’s a reason the IRS believes they can get away with this fiasco… They’re the IRS. They’re pretty much the definition of “power”.

Posted June 21, 2014

Crony Capitalism seems to be taking its toll on the Democrat Party… The big question, is whether or not the Republicans will be able to leverage that message for 2014. Conn Carroll, managing editor of Townhall Magazine, joined the show to talk about the pervasive nature of crony-capitalism.

Janet Yellen has no idea what the economy is about to do, Hillary Clinton has no idea what people think of her, and Barack Obama has no idea how to govern… I see a trend developing.

We finally got the person responsible for Benghazi. Sure, it only took 16 days to arrest some obscure film maker who had nothing to do with Libya – and it’s now been roughly two years since our ambassador was murdered – but, yeah… We got him.

The more people learn about Hillary, the less popular she seems to be. Her book is not selling, she’s making more idiotic statements than Joe Biden without a teleprompter, and even the left is starting to call her out on her lies… I’d have to say 2016 isn’t looking too good for Mrs. Clinton.
