CLA Radio 02/20/15: Oboe

CLA Radio 02/20/15: Oboe

Yes, oboe. Stop whining. No, I’m serious. Be quiet. It’s my show. Sheesh. The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 02/20/15, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern) will feature material that includes and/or features Oboe. You try programming that, hotshot. You’d be throwing in bassoons and French horns, hoping nobody noticed. Don’t think I won’t turn this car around. I have my eye on you. This is all @talkradio200‘s fault, for the theme at least (and for many suggestions regarding the orchestral material in the show), although he will hate hate hate the Zappa material. All will be explained in the show intro. The current chaos in my life being what it is, you never know when the show might end its run. So you might want to listen, even though it’s a show about (sigh) oboes. And yes, the Carly Rae Jepsen tune is Larry O’Connor bait. Thank you for noticing. Spotify set list is here. Hope you can stop by and listen, and join us...

God and Limited Government

God and Limited Government

Part of making a coherent case for constitutional government involves sifting through parades of burning straw men.   When Nick Gillespie published a piece at Reason magazine, a magazine that sometimes fails to live up to its name, about Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s call for America to turn back to God, I could see the straw men from a mile away. Gillespie asserts that Jindal wants to mix politics and religion and that has to be bad. Now he doesn’t lose as many points as a leftist would because he didn’t pull out the First Amendment canard. But he’s got enough errors in logic that it cannot go unanswered. The first problem with Gillespie’s screed is the inherent assumption that our nation turning to God and the cause of limited government are mutually exclusive. Gillespie writes: No, it’s not time to “turn back to God,” especially when it comes to politics and public policy. What ails the government is not a deficit of religiosity but a nearly complete failure to...

CLA Radio 02/13/15: New Retro Wrecks

CLA Radio 02/13/15: New Retro Wrecks

The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 02/13/15, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern) will be a two-part show. The first hour will consist of what I’ll call New Retro–newer artists who, for the most part, harken back to old school Country and the like. With the exception of Big Sandy & The Fly-Rite Trio (a favorite of David Burge AKA Iowahawkblog), the bands come from these two articles by Nicholas Pell: 10 Country Artists You Should Be Listening To 10 More Country Artists You Need to Listen To The second hour will be songs about wrecks and crashes, with an emphasis on train wrecks. Hence the show title, New Retro Wrecks. See what I did there? Spotify set list here. Hope you can stop by and listen, and join us in chat! Set list: Jason Boland: When I’m Stoned The Whiskey Sisters: So Close To The Sung Jamey Johnson: The Dollar Eric Strickland & the B Sides: I’m Bad For You Lindi Ortega: Little Lie The...

Expert at West Point Think Tank Warns of the “Violent Far-Right”

Expert at West Point Think Tank Warns of the “Violent Far-Right”

  West Point has a fine and storied tradition: President Thomas Jefferson signed legislation establishing the military academy in 1802.    The same Thomas Jefferson who often repeated the John Bradshaw quote: Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God. And the same Thomas Jefferson who wrote: When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty. West Point created the Combating Terrorism Center after the events of 9/11, in an effort to prepare cadets for the new and dangerous environment of suicidal enemies and thwart future attacks. Sounds good and noble, and in the context of West Point should be well-founded. However, Dr. Arie Perliger, one of the Center’s experts, published a study in November titled Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right. There is something tremendously unsettling about seeing the words “America’s Violent Far-Right” in the title. In Challengers, Perliger attempts to sideline West Point’s time-honored motto: Duty, Honor, Country. Dr. Perliger’s bio boasts, “…In the past decade Dr. Perliger has studied extensively issues related to Terrorism and Political Violence, Politics of Security, Politics of the...
