The World's First ICBM: A Real Attention-Getter!
Friends, this week's Newsmaker Show will blow your mind -- if it doesn't blow you away entirely.
First, Brian and I talk current events, including the well-scripted but ultimately insubstantial Democratic National Convention. Brian and I also speculate on who will really be running the country, should Biden prevail in November. In addition, we discuss the first few speeches at the RNC, and why this week is a golden opportunity for the Republicans to make polling gains. We also cover the Dems' obsession with the postal service and their desire for mail-in ballots. It appears they're playing a "long game" that involves counting and counting and counting (under the supervision of several thousand lawyers, of course) in November/December that leads, ultimately, to a victory for their side. If Republicans are left feeling cheated, well, the Left can put up with that. Winning is the bottom line.
In "This Day in History," Brian and I talk about the chaotic Democratic National Convention of 1968, held, as far as most historians are concerned, in the mean streets of Mayor Daley's Chicago. We also ponder the presidency and legacy of LBJ, one of the greatest champions of big government in American history. In addition, we cover the dawn of the age of the ICBM, in 1957, which altered the strategic balance in the Cold War permanently, and lastly we even make a nod towards the Battle of Tannenberg, which prevented a quick Allied victory in World War I.
Don't even think about not tuning in this week. Our missiles are target-locked on your location! Don't make us start a countdown...
In other news, check out this story on a professor placed on "administrative leave" for blaming China's communist government for the global pandemic. Was his rhetoric inflammatory? You bet. Would a professor similarly be accused of "xenophobia" if he, say, claimed that the President of the United States was a Russian stooge? Of course not. "Bigotry, hate, and intolerance" are all good, as long as they serve the Left. For shame.
