Description

I’ve tired off all the bad news we hear every day so today I’m going hit you with some of the good news you never hear about.

We’ll also talk about the lawsuit between the White House and CNN over the revocation of Jim Acosta’s press pass. You won’t believe what they’re claiming.

Great show today!

  • Hello everyone! As you can see, my name is Adam and I am an aspiring journalist. I have always had a knack for the creativity and awe inspiring nature of wordsmith code. I understand the power and truth that comes with writing down words. After all, the pen is mightier than the sword. Originally, I wanted to go to law school. However, after seeing the insolvency of the system and the massive debt, I realized how much of a mistake that would be. I now want to pursue a career as a journalist because I care about the truth, something that most journalists, sadly enough, do not care about in today’s world. Here is the thing: I don’t want to go into student loan debt. I’ve realized that journalism school is pretty useless. Most (if not all) of what you learn can be obtained through real-world experience and books. As a matter of fact, I feel as though I have more experience than most journalism students. For one thing, I have my own column that I edit and operate. The column is connected to a watchdog group here in Vegas. I intern for a new journalism start-up company, and I was just hired as a part-time writer and blogger for a new Bitcoin start-up. Needless to say, I’ve gained a lot and I’m still in my early to mid 20s! Here is my question: what can I do to become a journalism without becoming part of the system? I know there are a ton of great writers and authors here, and I’m hoping one of them would be willing to mentor me. If you have any advice at all, please share it with me. I want to learn from as many individuals as I possibly can. For liberty, -Adam Sanacore

  • What is your opinion on this? A friend asked me to send this to him and when it first happened Ive seen generally great responses and some small amounts of mixed reviews. http://www.snappytv.com/tc/1107706

  • When J. K. Rowling mentioned a petition to ban Donald Trump from the UK, the audience at the PEN Literary Gala applauded. But unlike much of the left, she knows that taking away freedom of speech threatens everyone, including her, and she rebuked the people who clapped. “Just a moment: Now, I find almost everything that Mr. Trump says objectionable. I consider him offensive and bigoted. But he has my full support to come to my country and be offensive and bigoted there. His freedom to speak protects my freedom to call him a bigot.” The people who applauded were doubtless the same ones who objected to PEN’s free speech award to Charlie Hebdo. While they’re not likely to be convinced by any argument, she may have gotten others to think about the danger in today’s spreading hostility to free speech. That’s what counts.

  • It took me a while to understand that Trumpism isn’t really about the issues. Not even the issues of anti-immigration and protectionism. It’s about the Chosen One, the Great Leader, the Messiah. When people think things have gone badly wrong, they often turn to someone who will set them right by taking command. The outrageous things he does have only increased his popularity. He boasts, “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.” When this mentality takes hold, there is no right or wrong for the Leader. When he does outrageous things, that merely proves nothing will stand in the way of his will. Caesar, Napoleon, Lenin, Hitler, Castro, Khomeini: They’ve all known the trick of harnessing the tribalist mindset. The specifics they offered didn’t matter so much as the promise that nothing would stand in their way. They can’t do anything horrible enough to turn people against them, except for failing. Telling Trumpists that he’ll do horrible things or that his policies will hurt everyone is beside the point. They expect him to “make America great again” by sheer force of authority.
