Podcast Episode 224: The Constitution and Executive Power | Brion McClanahan Author & Historian

A leftist professor wants to limit executive power. This should not be news in the Age of Trump. Every leftist wants to do that, but this leftist might be slightly different. Professor Julia Azari wrote a piece for Vox arguing that the Constitution doesn’t do enough to limit executive power and suggests amending it to do so.

We need to reign in the Executive.  The problem is NOT BHO44 or DJT45.  The DOWG weren’t perfect and they didn’t do enough to prevent the President from becoming a King. Or worse, a Deity.

I think of how some of my Depression Era relatives “worshiped” FDR and the fights when certain uncles who were war vets pointed out his flaws (i.e., women), claims that just weren’t true (i.e., he saved us from the Depression), and “conspiracy theories” (i.e., he caused Pearl Harbor; he led us into war; he was a socialist that gave away the world at Yalta).

Maybe that where I get my “suspicion” that ALL the Conspiracy Theories have a grain of truth at the core AND SOME even are true!

Argh!

ECONOMICS: Aren’t “tariffs” just taxes on “We, The Sheeple”?

John Stossel: Mr. Trump, if you raise tariffs on steel and aluminum, you punish consumers
By John Stossel | Fox News

*** begin quote ***

No, President Trump, it’s not true that if you tax imported steel, we “will have protection for the first time in a long while.”

The opposite is true. If you raise tariffs on steel and aluminum, you punish consumers.

*** end quote ***

Isn’t this just a tax increase in disguise?

Maybe “We, The Sheeple” should subsidize the biggie whip makers?

Sorry, but tariffs are just stupid ekkynomics!

RANT: Wikipedia goes the way of Snopes

Five of the Best Examples of Left-wing Bias on Wikipedia in 2017
by T.D. ADLER 1 Feb 2018

*** begin quote ***

Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales believes the Wikipedia model can help salvage journalistic integrity, but in the year since Donald Trump took office as President of the United States, the online encyclopedia has instead proven unable to even restrain its own biased editing community.

A look back on five of the biggest cases of political bias that gripped the site in 2017 should discourage anyone from looking to Wikipedia as a source for reliable and neutral information on the political topics of the day.

​Sadly, I like the concept of Wikipedia. But like Snopes, the hard left tilt has destroyed it’s value for me.

I made some donations to Wikipedia in the past but no more. 

So sad, to see a great idea, aka like the internet version of Library of Alexandria, go astray.
