Ep 871 Hour 1: Can Trump Bait Cruz?

Titles for the AG Kane of Arc saga heading for the big screen: The GodMotherfeaturing Patrick Reese as her consigliere/bodyguard. Governor VetoWolf and PA Legislators are talking about getting the budget done this week. No really. They know they have to get it done soon. WPXI reports that House Minority Leader Frank Dermody, D-Allegheny, after leaving a meeting with Majority Leader Dave Reed, R-Indiana, said “We know we’ve got to get a budget passed, And we’re looking forward to getting it done this week.

Ep 870 Hour 2: Taxpayers vs. Teachers, Or Something Else?

In 2016 taxpayers will be paying the maximum allowed by law to subsidize the pensions of teachers in PA(average salary of $63,521vs. median HOUSEHOLD income for Pennsylvania of $53,234) For every $1 they pay into their pension, you pay $4. The PA budget standoffcontinues and the Gov will not be heading to NYC and partying. David says it’s Gov. Wolf’s fault, but it’s still an impasse and people are being hurt (Gov Wolf’s recklessness hurts women and children most).

Ep 870 Hour 1: How Is The Budget Impasse Affecting You?

The good news? You are now paying the maximum allowed by law to subsidize the pensions of teachers in PAwho make above average income (average of $63,521vs. median HOUSEHOLD income for Pennsylvania of $53,234) For every dollar they pay into their pension, you pay four. It almost sounds bad when you say it that way. The bad news? Gov. Wolf and the Legislature stillhaven’t come to terms to end the budget standoffand it may stop even them from heading to NYC and partying.

Ep 869 Hour 3: How Did We Miss Hillary's Email?

Then the media, Democrats and most Republicans went crazy on Trump, calling him all kinds of names, including THE NAME. Not everyone did though. Two towns near San Bernardinodidn’t find it repulsive even though they voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012. Some looked at history, the law and the constitution and found president and statues that support the legality of Trump’s idea. Bill Heid with The Dragon and The Raven.

Ep 869 Hour 2: How Did The Fed Mess Up The Economy?

Hillsdale’s Emperor of Economics Gary Wolfram weighs in on Sen. Ted Cruz’s Fed criticism. Professor Gary Wolfram’s online course The Principles of Free Market Economics Lecture 9: “Case Study: The Great Recession". Johnny from Swoyersville re sharia law. Trump call to pause all Muslim immigration till we figure this thing out is based on unidentified PEW data (perhaps thisand this?) and poll of Muslims views by the Center For Security Policy.

Ep 869 Hour 1: Did Obama Say The Dark Path Of Radicalization Is Exclusive To Islam?

Former President Bill Clinton is coming to Scranton todayand AG Kane of Arc now has a Senate hearing. President Obama introduced the concept of the #DarkPathOfRadicalization(apparently exclusively for followers of Islam) Sunday night and called forstripping them of their 2nd Amendment rights. The President’s no-fly list, which he wants to use to strip American citizens of their 2nd Amendment rights without due process, is essentially a defacfto Muslim registry.

Ep 868 Hour 3: More On Obama's Religious Test For Immigrants

Hate Trump’s idea of banning all Muslims from entering the country “till we figure this out”? Yes, it’s poorly thought out, crudely explained and over the top. And while it’s not crazy, unprecedented, racist, anti-religion, unconstitutional, “un-American” or unpatriotic, mean spirited or even harsh by historical standards (eg. Exec. Order 9066), it is unworkable and has zero chance of being implemented. It comes from a guy who’s a showman soaking up free attention from a media that loves to hate him, but it does raise the question…

Ep 868 Hour 2: Obama's Religious Test For Immigrants

Almost everyone who thinks they are of consequence is lining up to condemn Trump, but while Trump’s idea of banning all Muslims from entering the country “till we figure this out” is poorly thought out, crudely explained and over the top, it’s not crazy, unprecedented, racist, anti-religion, unconstitutional, “un-American” or unpatriotic, mean spirited or even harsh by historical standards (eg. Exec. Order 9066). It may be unworkable and has zero chance of being implemented.

Ep 868 Hour 1: Trump's Religious Test For Immigrants

SHOCKED: Iran tested missile, breaching U.N. council resolutions: officials | Reuters First: Trump’s idea of banning all Muslims from entering the country is poorly thought out, crudely explained and over the top. It’s not crazy or unprecedented. It’s not racist (Muslim isn’t a race - heck, Andy McCarthy says its only partly a religion) certainly not unconstitutionalor even mean spirited. It’s not even harsh by historical standards (eg. Exec.
