Nicole Gelinas, Manhattan Institute senior fellow and author of the new book: After the Fall: Saving Capitalism from Wall Street--and Washington joins us at 130 Pacific to talk about her latest at National Review:
How Taxes Drive Down Home Values…
Standard & Poor’s released the latest Case-Shiller data on house prices on Tuesday, and the results weren’t pretty. In the past five years, house prices have declined to 2003 levels, and the average home declined in price by 3.9 percent over the last year alone. National politicians are scrambling to reverse the trend. But the remedy lies in state houses and town halls.
Two weeks ago, both Republicans and Democrats in Congress cited the struggling housing market as their reason for extending an “emergency” subsidy for homebuyers. The taxpayer-backed Federal Housing Administration will continue to guarantee mortgages on houses worth as much as $729,500, something it has done for three years. No middle-class family can afford such a home. But the home-builders lobby argued that a reduction in the guarantee would mean less demand and thus lower home prices not just at the top, but throughout the market. If you can buy an “expensive” bottle of wine for cheap, why buy the cheap bottle? The same thing goes for houses: When expensive houses become cheaper, there is less demand — and thus lower prices — for even cheaper houses.
No matter how hard Washington tries, though, it can’t legislate away reality. And the reality is that even half a decade into a housing slump, Americans still have good reasons to be wary of plunking down their hard-earned cash and signing up for a long-term mortgage. These reasons are closer to, well, home, than to Washington.
HR. 3– Molotov Mitchell, president of the award-winning Illuminati Pictures and the national spokesman for the Domestic Emergency Network joins us at 230 Pacific to talk about his latest viral video…
MUST WATCH: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?pageId=374925
As President of the award-winning Illuminati Pictures, Molotov has produced over 100 music videos, commercials and short films, documented Christian and Occult subcultures, run for his life from knife-wielding voodoo priests, directed a film about building better marriages, and hosted a national television talk show on Faith TV. His major projects include “Dark Planet: Visions of America”, “Father Fearless”, “Flamethrower” and “I Invented the Internet”. As a political communications strategist, he has reached tens of millions with his internet videos, improved campaign outreach techniques and his work's been featured in the New York Times, MSNBC, Harper's Magazine, Wired, American Thinker and Fox News. As a self-described “Christian supremacist”, he has lived on the street to better understand the homeless, thoroughly studied many major world religions, he became a Christian through analytical reasoning, and staunchly opposes “casual faith”.
Philip K. Howard, Lawyer and New York Times bestselling author joins us at 130 Pacific to talk about his latest at the Wall Street Journal:
Starting Over with Regulation - Why are government rules so complex? A guide to a radically simpler system…
Earlier this year, the Colorado Department of Human Services proposed new rules for day-care centers. Government oversight of day care seems like a good idea—you wouldn't want children cooped up in an airless basement—but this proposal went far beyond basic health and safety.
The new rules would dictate exactly how to do just about everything: how many block sets ("at least two (2) ... with a minimum of ten (10) blocks per set"), where the children can play with the blocks (on "a flat building surface" that is "not in the main traffic area") and when caregivers must wash their hands (before "eating food," "after wiping a child's nose," etc.).
This is the way regulation works in America: Regulators try to imagine every possible mistake and then dictate a solution. The complexity is astounding.
HR. 3 - Phil Kerpen, vice president for policy at Americans for Prosperity and the author of the book Democracy Denied (in stores now) on Obama’s extreme regulatory agenda joins us at 230 Pacific to talk about his latest at TeaPartyPatriots.Org:
The REINS Act and Lloyd Rogers: A Tea Party Success Story…
The House is poised to pass a fundamental reform that would transform the country’s regulatory system and restore the basic constitutional principle that Congress is responsible for writing the laws in this country. The reform bill is called the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, and it started two years ago as an idea in the head of a remarkable 78-year-old tea party activist in Alexandria, Kentucky named Lloyd Rogers.
In 2009 Rogers went to meet with his congressman, U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis (R-Ky.). Both were outraged about an EPA stormwater management consent decree that cost the three northern Kentucky counties in a consolidated sewer district about a billion dollars, doubling water fees. Rogers, having studies the Constitution, didn’t understand how the EPA could double his taxes without so much as a vote in Congress.
Jack Abramoff, American former lobbyist and businessman convicted in 2006 of mail fraud and conspiracy, author of Capitol Punishment: The Hard Truth About Washington Corruption From America's Most Notorious Lobbyist, Jack Abramoff joins us for 2 segments at 115 Pacific today to talk about insider trading in Congress.
Senators said at a hearing Thursday that Congress should quickly pass a bill that clearly prohibits its members and their staffs from trading stock based on nonpublic information they gather on Capitol Hill.
In a two-hour hearing before the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, members and witnesses said swift action was necessary because the public’s faith in Congress is at “an all-time low.”
“When the faith ebbs, as it now has to historic lows, we must increase our efforts to ensure that people who did us the honor of sending us to Washington can be confident that our only business is their business,” committee Chairman Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) said in his opening statement.
HR. 3 - Brooke Goldstein, documentary film maker, attorney, and founder and Executive Director of The Lawfare Project: www.thelawfareproject.org joins us at 230 Pacific to talk about her new book: Lawfare: The War Against Free Speech: A First Amendment Guide for Reporting in an Age of Islamist Lawfare…
The free speech rights of authors, researchers and journalists writing on issues of public security and national concern are increasingly under attack through both violent and non-violent means. An important non-violent challenge to free speech has emerged in the form of “Islamist lawfare,” the use of the law as a weapon of war to silence and punish free speech about militant Islam, terrorism and its sources of financing.
The strategic end of Islamist Lawfare is to further the goals of the Islamist movement, one of which is to abolish public discourse critical of Islam and punish anything deemed blasphemous to its prophet, Mohammad. Another goal of Islamist lawfare is to impede the free flow of public information about the threat of Islamist terrorism, thereby limiting our ability to understand it and destroy it. In this way, Islamist lawfare takes the form of a complementary legal campaign to terrorism and asymmetric warfare.
Lawfare: The War against Free Speech written by two of America’s experts in this field– describes this phenomenon and gives practical guidance about navigating this new terrain to journalists who wish to speak truthfully about the national security threats we face.
This book is a must-read primer on the First Amendment, and should be reviewed by anyone writing about the most controversial topics of our time.
Steve Malanga, , Senior Editor at City Journal, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, and columnist at RealClearMarkets.com joins us at 130 Pacific to talk about his latest at realclearmarkets.com: Bankruptcy Is An Ugly Option for Cities…
Earlier this month the Harrisburg, Pa., city council threw itself on the mercy of federal bankruptcy court, hoping to find a less onerous solution to its debt woes than the workout plans proposed by the state of Pennsylvania and by the city's own mayor. Last week, a bankruptcy judge mercifully threw the case right back out of court after finding that the filing by a majority of council members was illegal.
"For Chapter 9 bankruptcy to work, all of the branches of a municipality must be on the same page," the judge explained.
The faith that council members put in the court for a better deal was misguided. It came from a mistaken notion that Chapter 9, which regulates government filings, is similar to business bankruptcy law, where judges have discretion to take control of a firm's finances, void contracts, and even push creditors to forgive debts or else risk liquidation of a company at cents on the dollar. This misconception about Chapter 9 goes well beyond the naïve Harrisburg council members.
HR. 3 - Dr. Tony Sanders, Mercatus Center Senior Scholar, Distinguished Professor of Real Estate Finance Member, Financial Markets Working Group, former Director and Head of Asset-backed and Mortgage-backed Securities Research at Deutsche Bank joins us at 230 Pacific to talk about global central banks are riding to the rescue of failed fiscal policies of sovereign countries.
The central banks are faced with a crisis, in part of their own making, says Mercatus Center Scholar Anthony Sanders. Sovereign countries showed little or no fiscal discipline and spent like there was no tomorrow. As long as central banks purchase the excessive debt (or manipulate interest rates to near zero), sovereign countries will show little interest in putting their fiscal houses in order.
As expected, the global central banks are riding to the rescue of failed fiscal policies of sovereign countries. We have already seen staggering interventions from our own Fed, the Bank of England, and the Bank of Japan. The European Central Bank (ECB) has not been as accommodating as the Fed, but that is changing rapidly as the euro borders on collapse.
But it isn't about lower interest rates anymore-they are already below 2% for 10-year sovereign debt in many countries. It is about the central banks purchasing sovereign debt that no one else wants. In other words, central banks are acting as the buyer of last resort.
Will this work? Probably in the short run. But it masks the source of the problem: too much spending and too much debt. Central banks are helping governments avoid the pain of austerity.
Lt. Col Anthony Shaffer, New York Times bestselling author, Senior Fellow for the Center for Advanced Defense Studies joins us at 130 Pacific to talk about the latest developments between the US and Pakistan…
Pakistani trucks hauling supplies for U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan backed up along roads leading to the border after transit routes were ordered closed following a NATO air strike that killed 24 Pakistani troops.
Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar told Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a phone call yesterday that the Nov. 25 attack by helicopter gunships triggered a "deep sense of rage" in the nuclear-armed nation, according to a foreign ministry statement. The incident reversed progress in repairing strained ties between the two countries, the statement said.
Pakistani TV channels showed trucks carrying shipping containers and fuel stranded near two Afghan border crossings, a traffic jam that in the past has left trucks and drivers vulnerable to attack by Islamic guerrillas. U.S. military officials have said their forces can sustain operations in Afghanistan for weeks in case of such a shutdown.
HR. 3 - Jed Babbin, Former deputy undersecretary of defense for Bush 41, columnist for RealClearPolitics.com and The American Spectator joins us at 230 Pacific to talk about his latest at the American Spectator: Newt Gingrich, Grownup
Of the Republican Eight, he is best prepared to take a 3 a.m. call to the White House.
Hillary Clinton's "3 a.m. phone call" ad could have been a devastating attack on Obama's competence and experience. It failed to have an impact on voters because it ran four years too soon.
Against the backdrop of a sleeping child, the ad's narrator says there's something going on in the world, and a phone is ringing in the White House. He asks, who do you want answering the phone? Someone who knows the military, world leaders, and is tested and ready to lead? Unfortunately for Clinton, almost no one was interested in competence or national security in the last presidential election. Voters chose someone they didn't know, who lacked any education or experience relevant to the presidency.
As Obama's third year in office ends, we know him and his aberrant worldview. But the question raised by Clinton's ad has to be asked again, this time about the eight contenders for the Republican nomination. Who among them is best qualified on national security and defense?
Today on the Jerry Doyle Show: Congressman Ron Paul joins us on the show at 230 Pacific today to talk about his chances at winning the 2012 GOP Republican Presidential Nomination…
Ron Paul support growing in Iowa, poll shows
Twice this week, a survey shows Paul on the rise and in second place among likely Iowa Caucusgoers, finishing within the margin of error with poll leader Herman Cain.
The Iowa State University/Gazette/KCRG survey of 377 Iowa Republicans out today had Cain at 25 percent and Paul at 20 percent. Bloomberg’s Iowa poll out Tuesday had Cain at 20 percent and Paul at 19 percent.
Paul has been the first choice among at least 10 percent of Iowa Republicans since this summer, and has been between 10 and 12 percent since October.
In today’s survey, Mitt Romney came in third with 16 percent; Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry were tied for fourth with 8 percent.
Jack Abramoff, American former lobbyist and businessman. Convicted in 2006 of mail fraud and conspiracy joins us at 230 Pacific to talk about his new book: Capitol Punishment: The Hard Truth About Washington Corruption From America's Most Notorious Lobbyist, Jack Abramoff…
Washington, D.C. - IN THE SPAN OF 10 YEARS, Jack Abramoff became the most powerful lobbyist on Capitol Hill. Congressmen lined up to do his bidding, executives heeded his advice, and heads of governments hung on his every word. But when scandal brought him down-ultimately casting him into disgrace and even prison-this power broker said nothing.
Now a free man, Capitol Punishment: The Hard Truth about Washington Corruption from America's Most Notorious Lobbyist is Jack Abramoff's autobiographical expos unveiling the mysterious and corrupt world of federal politics.
Branded by a TIME magazine cover as "The Man Who Bought Washington," Jack was the centerpiece of the largest DC scandal in since Watergate. Sentenced to prison, Abramoff became the poster child for why the political system needed to be cleaned up-but has the system really been fixed? In Capitol Punishment, Abramoff pulls back the curtain on K Street, revealing the dirty underbelly of America's government and offers a harsh, thorough roster of reform imperatives. There will be little applause inside the beltway.
Today on the Jerry Doyle Show: Chuck Pfarrer, Former Assault element Commander of SEAL Team Six, and author of the bestseller Warrior Soul: The Memoir of a Navy Seal joins us at 130 Pacific to talk about his new book just out today: SEAL TARGET GERONIMO: The Inside Story of the Mission to Kill Osama Bin Laden…
New York, NY—In a shocking new account of the Bin Laden mission by a former assault commander who trained elite SEAL teams targeting “High Value” individuals, Chuck Pfarrer’s retelling of the mission, based on first-hand accounts of those on the ground, directly contradicts key details of media reports which were based on the White House’s several different, sometimes contradictory, versions of what happened.
Based on Pfarrer’s extensive research and interviews with his former colleagues, SEAL TARGET GERONIMO: The Inside Story of the Mission to Kill Osama Bin Laden (St. Martin’s Press, November 8, 2011) is the only account based on the experiences of the SEALs involved in the assault as told to the author, taking readers on the helicopter flight over the wall that leads deep into the terrorist lair and describing what it looked, sounded and smelled like as the bullets flew.
SEAL TARGET GERONIMO tells a larger story: Pfarrer explains how the SEALs studied bin Laden and his world. He chronicles earlier SEAL missions that were integral to the success of Nepture’s Spear in a way only a former SEAL commander can.
Hr. 3 ~ Nicole Gelinas, Economist, Manhattan Institute senior fellow and author of the new book: After the Fall: Saving Capitalism from Wall Street--and Washington joins us at 230 Pacific to talk about her latest at the LA Times: As Baby Boomers Retire, The Times Will Be A-Changin'…
Aging members of America’s middle class worry about retirement, and for good reason. When the TV talking heads aren’t reminding us about plummeting house prices, they’re speculating about not whether but by how much politicians will cut Social Security and Medicare benefits. And the financial and economic crises of the last several years have left the country 10% poorer, obliterating $6.1 trillion in wealth, a healthy chunk of which was in retirement savings.
The country’s financial crisis came at a particularly bad time. This year, the oldest of the 78 million people born from 1946 to 1964 are turning 65 and becoming senior citizens. Because of the immense size of this baby boom generation, the number of senior citizens will more than double between now and 2050, from 40 million to 89 million. And older folks will make up an ever-larger share of the population, increasing from 13% now to 20% in 2050.
Thanks to Botox and treadmills, the boomers are aging well. But their finances aren’t. Baby boomers, like most Americans, have seen no wage gains for two decades. In 2007, families headed by younger boomers â€” those 45 to 54 â€” earned a median income of $64,200, almost exactly the same, in inflation-adjusted dollars, as families in the same age group earned in 1989. (All numbers in this article are adjusted for inflation.)http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-gelinas-baby-boomers-retire-20111106,0,6262552.story
Today on the Jerry Doyle Show: Greg Palast, New York Times Bestselling author and investigative journalist for the BBC and The Guardian among others joins us at 1230 Pacific to talk about how Greece exploded but Goldman Sachs lit the fuse…
Greece exploded but Goldman Sachs lit the fuse. To join the Euro currency and to stay in it, Greece's right wing government secretly paid Goldman nearly half a billion dollars to devise a scheme to conceal the deficit. Goldman used flim-flam with derivatives, effectively defrauding the European Central Bank, the Greek public and holders of Greek bonds.
When a new Greek government discovered and disclosed the fraud, THAT was the day on which the market for Greece's debt imploded––and investors demanded monstrous high rates after they'd been conned.

Hr. 2 ~ Kevin Sorbo, Actor, producer, and director, and author best known for his leading roles on Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Gene Rodenberry’s Andromeda joins us at 130 Pacific to talk about his new book: "True Strength: My Journey from Hercules to Mere Mortal - And How Nearly Dying Saved My Life"
On television, as the star of the popular Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Kevin Sorbo portrayed an invincible demigod. He relished living the part—putting in 14-hour days on set, doing his own stunts, and relentlessly working out at the gym. Until one day it all came to an abrupt end.
Now, for the first time, Sorbo shares what viewers didn’t know: he suffered three strokes from an aneurysm in his shoulder that had been radiating blood clots throughout his body, likely for months. He was left partially blind and entirely incapacitated at just thirty-eight years old.
Appearances are everything in Hollywood, so Sorbo and the production studio hid the full details of his condition from the media. After all, how could the strongest man in the world be…fragile? To continue filming Hercules, the number-one worldwide syndicated TV series at the time, they frantically reworked scripts and revamped production to allow for the star’s severely limited involvement. But as the effects of the strokes persisted—with painful, mysterious, debilitating symptoms—and physicians could offer few answers, Sorbo grew increasingly despondent. http://www.kevinsorbo.net/

WASHINGTON—MF Global Holdings Ltd.'s bankruptcy is a "stark reminder" of risks in the financial system and the need to push ahead with new rules for the sector, a senior Treasury Department official said Friday.
"The challenges of the current economic environment and even very recent events remind us that we need to remain vigilant and continue forward on the path of reform," Mary Miller, assistant secretary for financial markets, said in remarks at an American Bar Association conference.
Today on the Jerry Doyle Show: Rebecca Wilkins, Senior Counsel, Federal Tax Policy, Citizens for Tax Justice (ctj.org) joins us at 130 Pacific to talk about a report she co-authored: 280 Most Profitable U.S. Corporations Shelter Half Their Profits from Taxes; Thirty Companies Paid Less Than Zero in Taxes In The Last Three Years…
Washington, DC – A comprehensive new study that profiles 280 of America’s most profitable companies finds that 78 of them paid no federal income tax in at least one of the last three years. Thirty companies enjoyed a negative income tax rate over the three year period, despite combined pre-tax profits of $160 billion. These are among the findings in “Corporate Taxpayers and Corporate Tax Dodgers, 2008-2010,” released today by Citizens for Tax Justice and the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy.
“These 280 corporations received a total of nearly $223 billion in tax subsidies,” said Robert McIntyre, Director at Citizens for Tax Justice and the report’s lead author. “This is wasted money that could have gone to protect Medicare, create jobs and cut the deficit.”
“Corporate Taxpayers and Corporate Tax Dodgers, 2008-2010” is the tenth comprehensive publication on corporate taxes from Citizens for Tax Justice (CTJ) and the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP). The two groups released their first major study on the federal income taxes that large, profitable American corporations pay on their U.S. pretax profits in 1984.
Hr. 3 ~ Gerald Celente, ECONOMIST, Founder of The Trends Research Institute and author of the national bestseller Trends 2000 and Trend Tracking joins us at 230 Pacific to talk about his latest predictions…
KINGSTON, NY, 3 November 2011 — The passage below is not from a recent New York Times or Wall Street Journal reporting on “Occupy Wall Street” – it was written in 1995 by Gerald Celente. In Celente’s best-selling book Trends 2000 (Warner Books, 1997), he predicted a watershed event that lay a decade and a half in the future:
“They flooded the streets. Day and night, they marched …As the demonstrations mobilized and gained momentum; the students were joined by their uncollegiate peers – the unemployed, the underemployed, the unemployable…
No one was sure what had turned the protestors into marchers, or what had pointed them in the direction of Wall Street. All that was known for sure was that a mob of adrenaline-pumped young people funneled into the narrow streets of the Financial District …

Hr. 3 ~ DR. David R. Henderson, Research fellow with the Hoover Institution and associate professor of economics at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California joins us at 230 Pacific to talk about an article he was quoted in: The Stupidity of "Buy American"…
One sign of economic ignorance is the faith that "Buy American" is the path to prosperity. My former employer, ABC News, did a week's worth of stories claiming that "buying American" would put Americans back to work.I'm glad I don't work there anymore.
"Buy American" is a dumb idea. It would not only not create prosperity, it would cost jobs and make us all poorer. David R. Henderson, an economist at the Hoover Institution, explained why.
"Almost all economists say it's nonsense," he said. "And the reason is: We should buy things where they're cheapest. That frees up more of our resources to buy other things, and other Americans get jobs producing those things."

Judicial Watch, the public interest organization that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents revealing the generous salaries and bonuses being paid to government workers in such agencies as the newly created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The documents were obtained by Judicial Watch in response to Freedom of Information (FOIA) requests filed on July 12, 2011 with the two agencies, as well as with the Federal Reserve, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), U.S. Treasury, and the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC).http://www.judicialwatch.org/news/2011/oct/judicial-watch-obtains-documents-revealing-generous-salaries-and-bonuses-government-fi
Hr. 3~ Peter Suderman, Associate editor of Reason magazine, 2010 Robert Novak Journalism Fellow joins us at 230 Pacific to talk about his latest from Reason.com: Go Ahead, Pull the Trigger… Why the Super Committee should allow its automatic deficit-reduction mechanism to work…
History shows that Congress can’t be trusted to control spending, much less cut it. Neither can the bipartisan committees it so often creates to reduce the deficit when Congress has failed. But what about automatic spending cuts scheduled to occur when the committee process inevitably fails? Sadly, they can’t be entirely trusted either. But they might still be the best hope we have.
This summer’s long-haggled debt deal called for the creation of a bipartisan “Super Committee” tasked with finding and recommending $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction over the next decade. The process itself was intended to be relatively speedy, at least by Washington standards. Recommendations were due by Thanksgiving, and Congress would be required to vote up or down by the end of the year. At least, that is, if the recommendations ever arrived.
Today on the Jerry Doyle Show: Phil Kerpen, Vice President for policy at Americans for Prosperity and the author of the book Democracy Denied (in stores now) on Obama’s extreme regulatory agenda joins us at 130 Pacific to talk about his book and his latest at the Washington Examiner: The Congress-optional president… Obama’s rule by executive fiat mocks the Constitution…
Oct. 11, after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had taken extraordinary measures to stall an embarrassing vote as long as possible, the Senate decisively rejected President Obama’s “jobs” plan. The same day, in Pittsburgh, Mr. Obama explained to his union allies that he would move forward regardless. “We’re not gonna wait for Congress,” Mr. Obama explained. “We can act administratively without additional congressional authorization and just get it done.” Now we know that part of what he meant was yet another mortgage bailout - one that will cost bond investors billions - via subsidized refinancing.
This remarkable disregard for the rule of law and proper constitutional procedures fit a familiar pattern in this administration: What it cannot achieve legislatively it will attempt to do by regulatory fiat. Congress must actively assert its legislative prerogative or be relegated to the sidelines.
One year ago, the American people decisively rejected Mr. Obama’s big-government agenda in a landslide election. Surely, most voters thought that election would at least halt, if not reverse, the country’s profound lurch toward a larger, more intrusive and more expensive federal government.
Hr. 3~ Professor Jeffrey Sachs, Director of The Earth Institute, Quetelet Professor of Sustainable Development, and Professor of Health Policy and Management at Columbia University joins us at 230 Pacific to talk about his new book: The Price of Civilization: Reawakening American Virtue and Prosperity…
For more than three decades, Jeffrey D. Sachs has been at the forefront of international economic problem solving. But Sachs turns his attention back home in The Price of Civilization, a book that is essential reading for every American. In a forceful, impassioned, and personal voice, he offers not only a searing and incisive diagnosis of our country’s economic ills but also an urgent call for Americans to restore the virtues of fairness, honesty, and foresight as the foundations of national prosperity.
As he has done in dozens of countries around the world in the midst of economic crises, Sachs turns his unique diagnostic skills to what ails the American economy. He finds that both political parties—and many leading economists—have missed the big picture, offering shortsighted solutions such as stimulus spending or tax cuts to address complex economic problems that require deeper solutions. Sachs argues that we have profoundly underestimated globalization’s long-term effects on our country, which create deep and largely unmet challenges with regard to jobs, incomes, poverty, and the environment. America’s single biggest economic failure, Sachs argues, is its inability to come to grips with the new global economic realities.
Today on the Jerry Doyle Show: Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News Channel Senior Judicial Analyst and anchor of FreedomWatch on FoxBusiness Network joins us at 130 Pacific to talk about his new book: It Is Dangerous to Be Right When the Government Is Wrong: The Case for Personal Freedom…
The United States of America was born out of a bloody revolt against tyranny. Yet almost from its inception, the government here has suppressed liberty. In his sixth book on the Constitution and human freedom, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano asks: Where does freedom come from? How can government in America exercise power that the people have not given to it? What forces have collaborated to destroy personal freedom?
In this back-to-basics on freedom, Judge Napolitano addresses hard questions:
· Do we still have a Constitution?
· What are the limits to government power in a free society?
· Why does the government attack, rather than defend, our rights?
· If our rights are inalienable, how can the government take them away?
· Do we really own any private property?
The Judge gives a sweeping treatment of natural rights and all the philosophical, religious, and ideological principles that underscore the concept of human freedom.

Associated Press - Insurance regulators in Arizona have seized the main subsidiary of private mortgage insurer PMI Group Inc., which will begin paying claims at just 50%.
The seizure follows heavy losses at PMI since the housing market bubble burst. Two months ago, state regulators ordered the Arizona subsidiary, PMI Mortgage Insurance Co., to stop selling new policies after it came under scrutiny because it didn't have enough money on hand to meet the requirements of regulations in that state.
A statement on PMI's website says a court order, signed Thursday by an Arizona Superior Court judge, gives Arizona's Department of Insurance full possession and control of the subsidiary. Beginning Monday, PMI says claims will be paid at 50% in lieu of a moratorium on claim payments. Meanwhile, PMI said it will "continue to support our customers' ongoing policy servicing needs, and loss mitigation programs."
Today on the Jerry Doyle Show: Janice Kephart, Director of National Security Policy at the Center for Immigration Studies joins us at 1230 Pacific to talk about her latest from cis.org: Amnesty by Any Means…
Analysis of a series of leaked memos from within the Department of Homeland Security’s highest ranks shows that the Obama administration has sought for the last year and a half to form a strategy to achieve amnesty for the illegal population without input from Congress. The goal? Ultimately, according to a June 2010 memo, the administration seeks to “reduce the threat of removal for certain individuals present in the United States without authorization.” Well aware of the potential political fallout among both Congress and the American people, the administration provided internal briefs on the pros and cons of varying strategies to gain an administrative amnesty.
The course eventually decided on appears to be the now infamous June 2011 “prosecutorial discretion” memo issued by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director John Morton. This memo, embraced by the White House a few weeks ago, sets a course that prevents the enforcement of immigration law, provides a de facto amnesty, and is effectively worker authorization for much of the current illegal population. The current course of non-enforcement is in contrast to the initial proposed strategies of proactive immigration law rewrites.
