Radical Agenda EP242 – Shut Up, Meg

Friday will be the happiest day in my sorry excuse for a media career. Megyn Kelly will host her final episode of “The Kelly File” on Fox News before heading over to NBC with the other communists where she belongs. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Radical Agenda has outlasted The Kelly File, and I invite you all to join with me in celebrating, because I literally could not have done this without your help.

Radical Agenda EP242 – Shut Up, Meg

In case you were just born last week, Megyn Kelly is the host of Fox’s 9pm Eastern news commentary show, The Kelly File. Megyn made herself a campaign issue during the election by attempting to paint Donald Trump as a misogynist. She then had the audacity to spend the rest of the campaign season playing the victim since people were mean to her on Twitter.

That’s right, believe it or not, people who didn’t like a Fox News host actively helping Hillary Clinton actually used dirty words on the Internet. Which is proof of the patriarchal stranglehold of masculine oppression on our society. That’s why Megyn needs feminism, and so do you. [Insert vomit sound here] [Followed by self inflicted gunshot]

Kelly purportedly asked for $25 million to continue hosting the show, and shockingly enough Fox News figured they could actually afford someone with talent and an understanding of public policy for that kind of money. I suspect her next job will be doing cam shows with Rachel Maddow on PornHub, which would likely see an initial flood of traffic as obese people everywhere look for inspiration to vomit. However, the position (pun intended) is likely to result in a significant paycut for both lesbians.

In other news, get ready to make America sick again! License, registration, and pronouns, please. Tell the Russians we’re coming. Oh, and why isn’t the Democratic party freaking out about the hack attacks on Drudge?

There’s a lot more to get to, plus your calls at 747-234-2254 or RadicalAgenda on Skype.

Join us, this and every Wednesday, as well as Mondays and Fridays from 5-7pm Eastern for another exciting episode of the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like Fox News.

I’ll also be streaming to UStream and Facebook today.

Radical Agenda EP241 – Because It’s 2017!

As I write this, I struggle to find the words to express my excitement about the year ahead. Using the example of the Democratic party, and leftists around the world, we have before us a profound opportunity to make the world a better place. Not only that, but we have the perfect justification for all of our actions.

Because it’s 2017.

Radical Agenda EP241 - Because It's 2017

Radical Agenda EP241 – Because It’s 2017

Yes, ladies and gentlemen. In less than three weeks Donald Trump will ascend to the presidency of the United States. He will have that pen and phone we have heard so much about, and a Republican House and Senate to go with it. Barring an extraordinarily reckless attempt by Barack Obama to confirm Merrick Garland by way of recess appointment, we’ll soon capture the majority of the Supreme Court as well, not to mention over a hundred seats on lower courts.

So when we build the wall, and they ask us “Why?” we will answer them;

Because it’s 2017.

And when we round up and deport the invaders, and they ask us “Why?” we will answer them;

Because it’s 2017

And when the hardened criminals amongst the invaders resist us, and we gun them down in the streets, and in their homes, and in front of their wives and children, and the left asks us why, we will answer them;

Because it’s 2017

And when the record setting regulations of this administration are struck from the pages of the Code of Federal Regulations, and businesses grow and bad employees are replaced with better ones, and the parasites of our civilization ask “Why?” we will answer them;

Because it’s 2017

There’s a lot more to get to, plus your calls at 747-234-2254 or RadicalAgenda on Skype.

Join us, this and every Monday, as well as Wednesdays and Fridays from 5-7pm Eastern for another exciting episode of the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like the current year!

I’ll also be streaming to UStream and Facebook today.

Radical Agenda EP100 – Internet Aristocracy

Mr. Metokur, AKA Jim, FKA Internet Aristocrat guest co-hosts the 100th episode of Radical Agenda on the eve of the New Hampshire presidential primary which, like the Iowa caucuses, is predicted to have a record turn out. There is so much to talk about, I’m finding it difficult to predict what direction we’ll end up taking.

Radical Agenda EP100 - Internet Aristocracy

Radical Agenda EP100 – Internet Aristocracy

Social Justice Warriors are ruining tech. We’ve already talked about Ellen Pao and her efforts to ruin reddit, now GitHub is crumbling under the weight of a “Social Impact” task force so hell bent on “diversity” that it has become “almost impossible” to “interview white people” for jobs. Jim says he has been doing research into who is trying to destroy the IT industry, and it will blow your mind when you hear it. Between feminists demanding the UN act to stop people from disagreeing with feminists online, Facebook censoring anyone who talks bad about “refugees” in Europe, and Twitter’s new policies of cracking down on “extremism” are we headed for an Internet Aristocracy of a wholly different variety than Jim’s old pseudonym implied?

Let’s hope not, because letting leftists control vast segments of the economy has far more harmful impacts than simply stifling the fun of problematic shitlords like us. Whenever the seats of power are filled by reality detached fools, bad decisions are made that affect all of us. Take Greece for example. Their egalitarian efforts and the catastrophic outcomes are no surprise to this audience. The government there has run itself so badly into debt that even the other socialist governments of Europe have said “enough is enough”. The Greek stock market is today in free fall, ahead of the realization that the government must choose between social unrest, and more austerity, which of course will cause social unrest. That impact was also felt across Europe, and with interest rates already in the red, it is difficult to imagine a positive outcome.

There’s quite a bit more to discuss of course, and we’ll get to as much of it as possible, plus your calls at 218-936-0815 or Radical Agenda on Skype.

Join us, this and every Monday, as well as Wednesdays and Fridays from 5-7pm Eastern for another exciting episode of the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like the IT industry.

Radical Agenda EP055 – Anti-Science

I made the mistake of watching the “First In The South Democratic Forum” over the weekend. Among all the pandering to women, gays, and ethnic minorities and between promises of free stuff, one other thing the candidates touted really irritated me. Democrats perpetually insist they are the party that believes in science. This is usually done in response to their dubious claims about “climate change” (Formerly known as global cooling, then global warming). But they repeat this over and over again on a range of issues from racial disparities, to gender egalitarianism, right down to the absurd insistence that people can change their gender and schools ought to be forced to make boys and girls shower together.

Radical Agenda EP055 - Anti-Science

Radical Agenda EP055 – Anti-Science

What do you get when you trust government with science? An immeasurable number of people convicted, imprisoned, and even executed on completely bogus pseudo-science.

The Justice Department and FBI have formally acknowledged that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000. Of 28 examiners with the FBI Laboratory’s microscopic hair comparison unit, 26 overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far, according to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and the Innocence Project. The cases include those of 32 defendants sentenced to death. Of those, 14 have been executed or died in prison.

The admissions mark a watershed in one of the country’s largest forensic scandals, highlighting the failure of the nation’s courts for decades to keep bogus scientific information from juries.

While hair samples don’t tie into what we commonly term as political correctness, that is exactly what caused this disaster. Political correctness, in the sense that what scientists and scientific journals had published was completely false, but was deemed correct simply because it was accepted by people of a certain status. Juries ignored reality, and instead trusted doctors in white coats before sentencing men to decades, life in prison, or even death.

I’ve mentioned it before, but it bears repeating and I’ll go into a bit more detail on this episode. This leftist grip on the sciences is a thing we were warned about a long time ago. From Alan Sokal and the “Science Wars” of the mid ’90s, we got “Higher Superstition: The Academic Left and its Quarrels With Science” in which scientists Paul Gross and Norman Levitt warn that leftist influences on science and academia posed a threat to the very concept of science, and perhaps even the survival of the species.

Fast forward to October of 2015, when Bo and Benjamin Winegard see the problem as it has come to fruition in their paper “A Social Science Without Sacred Values“. In it, they discussed the “paranoid egalitarian meliorist” as having virtually taken over the sciences and academia, and their hostility toward the very concept of science making honest intellectual inquiry impossible. Their hostilities towards certain inquiries, combined with the popularity of their nonsense ideas chases out true intellectuals, they gain the seats of power, their biases influence hiring, and peer review. The bias in hiring and peer review, then feeds back into the system, since only those who agree with their anti-scientific worldview can get hired or get their papers reviewed by respected peers. And on the cycle goes as mankind’s very capacity to understand the universe is diminished to the point of worshipping volcano gods and human sacrifice.

The Democratic party doesn’t “believe in science” they have spent decades trying to destroy it.

In other news, cops are rapists. Academia is now pushing “fat activism” in the classroom. Your cat may be plotting your murder. Daycare workers fired for refusing to call a girl a boy. And of course, your calls at 218-936-0815 or Radical Agenda on Skype.

Join us, this and every Monday (as well as Wednesdays and Fridays) from 5-7pm Eastern for another exciting episode of the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like, the scientific method.

Radical Agenda EP008 – Guns and Polyamory

I had originally asked Lauren Rumpler to come into the studio to discuss polyamory. Polyamory is, in short, having more than two partners in a romantic/sexual relationship. I wanted to discuss it and take a pro-monogamy position myself.

Then I got caught up in a self defense incident where I became the number one story on reddit, because I pulled a gun out on some drunk lunatics in Keene. So I figure we’ll spend some time discussing that, and at this point I’m just happy I’m alive and didn’t have to kill anybody.

Show starts today, Monday, May 11th at 5:30pm Eastern. Call 218-936-0815 or hit us up on Skype username Radical Agenda, if you would like to be on the program. Continue reading

Radical Agenda EP007 – Heresy with Tom Woods

Tom Woods will be joining me this Friday, May 8th for the 7th episode of Radical Agenda. I’m gitty, because Tom is one of my favorite podcasters, though that certainly isn’t his most impressive credential. Tom is a senior fellow at the Mises Institute, one of few libertarian institutions I still hold in high regard. He’s the author of 12 books, the most recent of which is “Real Dissent: A Libertarian Sets Fire to the Index Card of Allowable Opinion“. He holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Harvard and his master’s, M.Phil., and Ph.D. from Columbia University.

Radical Agenda EP007 – Tom Woods

Tom had me on his program last year, and surprisingly enough, he doesn’t hate me yet. Let’s see how long we can put that off.

Tom is a very busy guy. I had originally reached out to him after his appearance at the Mises Circle in Houston where he gave a talk on secession. Aside from giving a great talk on the subject at hand, he made this really excellent statement about the state of political discourse in America today;

One of my themes over the years has been that the American political and media classes behave as if, there is a 3×5 card of allowable opinion. And if you stray from that 3×5 card, you will be smeared, condemned, written out of polite society. You won’t be refuted, that’s one thing you can guarantee. You can make all the reasonable arguments you want, but if you’re taking a position that is held by neither Mitt Romney nor Hillary Clinton, you are wrong by definition. So there is no need to refute you. All we need to do, as Lew Rockwell says is just point and say “Eeek! A Mouse!”. There’s no need to respond to anything we’re saying. We peons don’t deserve a refutation from our betters. So when I am invariably smeared for talking about themes like this, it’s completely expected. That’s what the media classes do. You strayed from the 3×5 card you’re not entitled to a refutation. If you get up at an event like this, and you say that I do not believe that a system in which 320 million diverse people are ruled infallibly by a single city, is the most humane form of political organization, that eminently reasonable statement will not be refuted. You will simply be smeared and condemned, you’re obviously crazy. You’re crazy. This is the best way to organize society, and it’s so obviously the best way, that even to question it makes you a heretic.

Well I’m very glad to be a heretic in this bizarro world.

I feel the same way, Tom, and not just with the media classes. Those who purport to be our own people are doing this to us now. It’s almost as if the New York Times had an intern program, where you practice smearing libertarians by pretending to be one for a few years before you get to join their team.

Lucky for us, we’ve got podcasting, affordable web hosting options, social media, and other means by which to deliver our message directly to interested parties.

Join Tom and I for another exciting episode of Radical Agenda, a show about common sense extremism. This and every Friday from 5-7pm Eastern. Give me a ring at 218-936-0815, or connect with Skype username Radical Agenda, if you would like to be on the program.
