This episode is inspired by Paul Harvey's epic segment from 1965 called, "If I Were the Devil", where he outlined what the devil would do if he wanted to take down the United States.

In this episode, I attempt to update his nearly sixty-year-old rant with some specific and recent examples.

If you pay the least bit of attention to the news, you will have a hard time avoiding Critical Race Theory.

Last year, President Trump signed an executive order banning it from all federal agency training.

The governors of Oklahoma and Tennessee recently signed bills banning its teaching in public school while the governor of Washington state signed a bill that requires CRT training for all public school officials across the state.

In this episode, we explore the truth about this thing called Critical Race Theory.

Antifa is one piece of the broader anti-American movement that prioritizes power and control over the well-being of the country as a whole. The group's biggest victory, by far, is their acceptance and tolerance by the mainstream Left including the corporate press and national Democrats.

In this episode we conduct a deep-dive into Antifa. Who are they? How well-organized are they? What is their organizational structure? Are they just an idea as Biden has said? Are they mostly peaceful protesters as countless media outlets and national Democrats have said? And, most importantly, how can a group who claims to be anti-fascist get away with employing fascistic means to achieve their objectives without being thoroughly discredited?

When Walter E. Williams passed away last week, the world lost a giant intellectual, prolific columnist, humorist, economist and preacher of the truth about free markets and the United States Constitution. He was a master communicator with an uncanny ability to make complex topics and theories understandable. Throughout his life, he demonstrated unwavering courage to stand up and tell the truth starting with his challenge of the U.S. Army and President John F. Kennedy over racial discrimination in the military while holding the lowly rank of Private!

He spent decades teaching economics at George Mason University and, along the way, blessed us with volumes of logic and common sense - some of which I share with you in this episode.

The purpose of this episode is, not only to summarize Ben Shapiro's book, How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps, but to help you recognize the agenda and tactics used by the Disintegrationists - as Shapiro calls those who wish to tear down America.

Going forward, I hope that you consume the news with this information in mind. Identify the schemes deployed by these folks for what they are and understand their motivations.

In Episode #98, we focused on the most common myths about Lincoln. In this episode, we take a deeper look at the man, his motivations, his actions and consider what his true legacy should be. Specifically we examine how he destroyed states' rights, his dictatorial actions during the war, his real agenda and we make a strong case that he should have been charged as a war criminal had he lived.

Bernie Sanders has been leading the charge toward socialism his entire life. Within a few weeks of this podcast's publication (at the most a few months), Bernie will be a two-time loser of the Democratic Party's nomination to be President. Despite his failure to secure the nomination, he has laid the foundation for more radical candidates in the future. In this episode, we examine the life of Sanders and the foundation on which he has built his movement.

You are likely familiar with the caricature of capitalism. You know the one - capitalism is some nefarious monster that does nothing but squash the little guy like bugs while the billionaires laugh, smoke cigars and sip the finest cognac.

The criticisms of capitalism are well-known. Capitalism is based on greed and selfishness. It is immoral. It exploits workers. It is a zero sum game. Under capitalism, giant corporations have too much power. And capitalism is based on competition rather than cooperation.

But have you ever examined these claims in any detail? Have you ever considered the alternatives to capitalism?

You've likely heard all the critics complaints about Walmart: The company underpays its employees, does not offer employee benefits, squeezes its suppliers which, in turn, kills domestic manufacturing jobs and leads to sweatshop labor in less-developed countries. The list continues: Walmart kills Mom and Pop shops, resists the unionization of their workforce, and destroys rural America.

Sounds like a horrible company but what is the truth about Walmart?
