In this episode of American Survival Radio, Joe and Amy Alton discuss the end of dictator Fidel Castro, how he bamboozled his own people, and how his brother Raul still holds the island in an iron grip. Despite this, world leaders (and Jill Stein) are falling all over each other to heap praise upon his corpse. Hear the real truth about this monster. Also, Democrats are feeling a little regret from bullying Republicans around in congress all those years: The rules they changed to get Obama’s appointees in the door now work for Donald Trump’s! Hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth?

The Castros: One Down, One To Go

Fidel Castro, long-time leader of a revolution that made one country, Cuba, into a desperately poor dictatorship for generations and inspired another, Venezuela, to follow in its footsteps, is dead. Heads of state from every corner of the world are stepping over each other in the rush to heap praise upon someone who was, essentially, a New World Stalin.

In India, the prime minister mourns him as a “great friend”. In Mexico, he’s being praised as a friend as well by the president, and Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau calls him a “legendary revolutionary and orator”. The Pope expressed a sense of grief at the death of Fidel Castro, an avowed atheist. Even President Obama expressed condolences to the Cuban people (at least those still alive).

In the latest episode of American Survival Radio, Joe and Amy Alton recount the status of the push for a recount! Green Party candidate Jill Stein has raised 5 million dollars from anguished Democrats for legal fees to challenge the results in 3 states. Unfortunately for her, no recount has ever switched ten thousand votes to the other candidates, which would be what happened for Clinton to get Michigan, 27 thousand for Wisconsin, and a whopping 68000 or Pennsylvania. Hacking? Since a lot of voting was done on paper ballots, not likely.

Democrats’ Explanation of Trump: Sleep Deprivation

learned-helplessness

In our roles as preparedness experts for disasters and epidemics, we’re often asked to come on various media outlets to give our opinion, mostly on medical issues. Sometimes it’s about current events relating to our podcast American Survival Radio. Rarer is the interview request that seems to be a medical topic but has obvious political overtones. Just yesterday, I received one of these when a radio station asked me to comment, as a doctor, on whether Donald Trump’s 4-Hour a night sleep habit “impacts his ability to make rational & sound decisions”.

The protests following the election of Donald Trump to the presidency have used as their excuse the popular vote victory of Hillary Clinton, probably at this point by a margin of a million votes. Of course, it’s ridiculous to think that leftists and other misguided folks wouldn’t have protested to the same extent even if Trump won the popular vote, as they think anyone who disagrees with them is racist, misogynist, xenophobic, and every other name in the book.

But it’s true, the United States is a democratic republic. The average citizen votes for representatives of their choice to go to battle for them in the government.

protests

Donald Trump is our next president and the day after the election, several cities had protests that held up traffic and caused disruption of some services. Many of the participants in the protests were disappointed first-time voters who chose Hillary Clinton as their champion. Of these first time voters, the majority were likely in the millennial/college student demographic.

One news outlets interviewed a young Chicago resident named Michael Burke, who said he believes the president-elect will “divide the country and stir up hatred.” Of course, he was saying that as he was trying to divide the country and stir up hatred. He added something to the effect that he had a constitutional duty to be there. In other words, he had a constitutional duty to protest for the ouster of the constitutionally-elected president.
