In a stunning display of authoritarian reasoning activist Shelley Garland, writing for the Huffington Post is calling for the abolition of voting rights for white males in South Africa.
That's right, according to Shelley white men should be prevented from voting for the next 20-30 years, so the world has a chance to reorder itself in a more fair and equitable way.
I know you might be thinking this is some extremist pushing an idea that will never get any traction...
But I think it's important to not that this is how unacceptable ideas become acceptable.
By speaking them out loud, proudly, and chastizing anyone with an opposing view, these kinds of ridiculous ideas move from impossible to horrifyingly real.
I would be amiss if I didn't point out that much of the rationale used to defend her argument were the same ones made for denying rights to Jews in Germany.

I wanted to talk a little today about the battlefield and the difficulty in understanding what's true and what isn't
The Syria chemical weapons attack is a perfect example. The Syrians deny doing it, we say they did, the president says there can be no question, and the Russians say it never happened.
Who's lying and who's telling the truth?
We may never know. Today we'll look at a similar story involving a U.S. attack on a warehouse.
Apparently, we accidently killed some innocent people in the attack, but the Syrians say we hit a chemical weapons depot killing hundreds.
Everybody has an agenda, so it's hard to know who to trust. The truth is, we may never know. On the battlefield intelligence is often difficult to sort and verify.
It could be everyone THINKS they are telling the truth when in fact none of them have the whole story.
We also spend a lot of time today talking about business and how an economy works.
Big show, lots to cover. Don't forget to share!

Robert Kaplan, the president of the Dallas Fed Bank, warned this morning that "we are highly leveraged." and that the countries ability to boost growth through debt are limited.
Now that might not make a lot of sense to some of you, but after today's show, all will be clear. You'll understand it so well by the end of the show you're friends will marvel at the depth of your knowledge.
We'll then take a look at Puerto Rico, a province that tried to use debt to grow it's way to prosperity. It didn't work out so well.
That's not a good sign.
I've got all of that in the stack today. Looking forward to sharing with you.

Well, if you're wondering what 96 million dollars worth of Tomahawk missiles bought us the answer is, "not much."
Reports started coming out on Friday that the Syrians resumed launching airstrikes from the airfield we bombed just hours after we finished.
To add insult to injury, Iran and Russia just sent us an ultimatum. In short, they said, if you try that again, we're going to strike back.
This creates problems for Trump. Not only was his strike ineffective but now he risks starting WWIII if he takes action again.
This is exactly why you don't start wars you're not prepared to win. Syria is a country that did not attack America and a country that poses no threat to our liberty. We should have left well enough alone.

Yesterday, the President of the United States took unilateral action to bomb a sovereign nation that had not attacked us or threatened our liberties.
In response, the media and Congress have moved swiftly to reinforce several key points that help to justify the president's actions. For the President to be safe from criticism, the media must ensure the narrative that Trump's actions were.
What I will do today is show you how the media, with the help of some slippery politicians, are accomplishing this.
Get ready; this is not going to be pretty.

Yesterday Trump said his views on Syria and President Assad had changed. Neo-conservatives must have been salivating at the idea that Trump might approach Congress about an authorization to go to war.
Senator John McCain is certainly excited. He not only wants a war with Syria he wants Assad replaced, Russia and Iran punished and deeper military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Does anyone else see a problem with this?
Rep. Thomas Massie does, and he braved a CNN interview with some talking-head in a skirt to share his thoughts.
I'll break down the debate, and we'll also talk about the Nu-CLEAR option and Obamacare.
Thanks for your support and as always, share the show!

We all heard about the recent chemical attack in Syria and the prevailing narrative coming out of the government and being carried by the media is that Assad ordered the attack in a brazen attempt to end the war.
But let me ask you a question.
Why would Assad, who has managed to retain power, keep the Americans and Allies at bay and enlist the support of the Iranians and Russians risk everything by using chemical weapons?
In December Assad, with the help of the Russians was able to take back the city of Aleppo. He was winning. Why risk a war with America by doing something that would virtually guarantee a defeat?
Something smells funny, and I'm going to give you my take on it today.
A meeting between President Xi of China and Trump is scheduled for later this week at Mar-a-Lago, and it will be imperative Trump secures the support of the Chinese if he intends to take military action to put down the North Korean Dictator.
Enjoy the show, don't forget to like and share!

News out today that Susan Rice, Obama's national security adviser was behind the unmasking of Trump associates that were later compiled and disseminated throughout the intelligence community.
So, is this a vindication of Trumps claim that he was "wiretapped" by the Obama administration? Well, no.
Neither does it mean that the Rice story is fake news. Everything about it appears to be true. Rice is not denying anything. She is simply saying she was not the one who leaked the information to the press.
So where does that leave us? Well if you're a partisan hack you just pick a side and defend it like Don Lemon from CNN did. If you're and actual journalist or someone seeking the truth you listen to this show.
Today I'm going to break down the Trump/Russia/Obama scandal and show you the real story, the story nobody is reporting on. It's the story that SHOULD be making you angry.
We'll also talk government spending and Trumps new TRILLION dollar infrastructrue spending plan. It's more big government solutions to a problem caused by government.
Listen, Share, Repeat.

So much has happened in just the last few days. I had scheduled interviews on Thursday and Friday that turned out to be fantastic talks with some interesting people, but that means we've had nearly five full days without any current events.
There's a great deal happening in Washinton right now. Gorsuch will likely make it through to a full Senate vote, and the question is, will Republicans have to resort to changing the Senate rules to get him approved.
One thing is sure, with the media already priming the idea that the reason Trump is failing is that he's an outsider, Republicans can't afford another loss.
Behind the Gorsuch appointment is tax reform and as much as Republicans would like you to believe it's a slam dunk there are provisions in the tax plan that will anger both progressives and conservatives.
It's an exciting start to the week. Listen, learn, share.
I'll talk to you tomorrow,
