American Survival Radio #71

In this episode of American Survival Radio, hosts Joe and Amy Alton dissect  the failed effort to repeal and replace Obamacare, and where to go from here, plus a look at socialized medicine as it is in Europe and Canada. Also, Bill Nye, a “scientist” who is open to jailing climate change deniers, wants older Americans to “age out” (by that he means die) so that real progress can be made to get rid of fossil fuels. Finally, the Altons discuss a news story that doesn’t get much press, the arrest of an IT specialist in the employ of congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D, FL). Find out what’s going on in American Survival Radio #71 with Joe and Amy Alton! (air date 7/29/2017) read more

American Survival Radio #70

in this episode of American Survival Radio, hosts Joe and Amy Alton document the latest travails of the Obamacare repeal and replace effort. Is it on its last legs or even more gone than that. Joe and Amy think so. Also N. Korea is testing more ballistic missiles while the U.S. is instituting a travel ban on the Asian nation. It’s gotten to the point that Hawaii and California are instituting air raid and bomb drills like back in the 1950s! Plus, another ban, this time in England to ban the use of gender stereotypes, like “boys will be boys” and other statements that are now considered politically incorrect. read more

American Survival Radio #59

In this episode of American Survival Radio, hosts Joe and Amy Alton discuss the repeal and replacement of Obamacare by the House of Representatives, just the first step in a long process that may or may not leave the Senate totally unrecognizable. The Senate doesn’t even have to take the House bill as a guideline, and there’s talk of a bipartisan effort, but is there such a thing anymore?

Plus, Is Neil Gorsuch living proof of a successful Trump presidency all by himself? Maybe, if you consider the way his nomination may slow the inexorable march towards the left of our institutions. read more

How Obamacare Affects Congressional Families (It Doesn’t, They’re Exempt)

(This article by Joe Alton first appeared in the Daily Caller)

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R, FL) has called for an immediate end to a 2013 rule that provides special healthcare subsidies for members of Congress. In a letter to President Trump last week, DeSantis wrote that he believes the President can press the urgency of Repeal and Replace if members of Congress have to suffer under it like everyone else

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) states that all members of Congress and their staff must purchase insurance through the exchanges. Sounds fair, doesn’t it? if the average citizen has to go through Obamacare, why shouldn’t they? The ACA also eliminated government subsidies given to members of congress and their staffs to purchase health insurance. read more

American Survival Radio #54

In this episode of American Survival Radio, hosts Joe and Amy Alton discuss the nature of war as it pertains to the Civil War in the US: Left vs. Right. It is a war, make no mistake, and someone will win it and someone will lose it. Also, it’s the end of the world as we know it, at least if you believe the media’s frothy venom regarding the climate accord, “free press”, and a Trump “dictatorship”. If Trump is such a dictator, how come he could even repeal Obamacare? More paranoia on the Left and it’s starting to wear on the average American. read more

Of Course, You Realize, This Means War!

(This article by Joe Alton first appeared in the Daily Caller)

I’m betraying my age by admitting that I watched Bugs Bunny cartoons during my childhood. (I should say reruns of Bugs Bunny cartoons; I’m not that old). Bugs was generally a peaceful get-along sort of rabbit; that is, until Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, or Wil E. Coyote got him mad. Once you raised the hackles of the hare, you were in a mess of trouble.

Democrats today are in the business of hackle-raising, and they’re doing a fine job of it. With eight years of Obama court appointees in their pocket, the anti-Trump strategy of death by a thousand judicial cuts is progressing nicely. Their legal (wrong word, perhaps) successes have left open the immigration floodgates, and it’s just the beginning: Wait until the courts get their hands on a border wall. One environmental impact lawsuit about the wall’s effect on the yellow-bellied swamp porcupine and…well, you get my drift. read more

American Survival Radio #53

American Survival Radio

In this episode of American Survival Radio (March 25, 2017), host Joe Alton goes it alone when Amy leaves times for family business.  The attack on Westminster bridge by a jihadist kills several, wounds many more, and points to the new blueprint for terrorists. They don’t need a bomb, they don’t need guns, they just need a vehicle to kill and maim innocent citizens. Find out what you can do to identify and avoid these threats in the uncertain future.  (Dr. Alton’s article on vehicular terror on this website has so far been picked up by at least 20 other sites!) read more

American Survival Radio #51

In this episode of American Survival Radio (March 11, 2017), President Donald Trump gets a  lesson in partisanship from a judge in Hawaii when his greatly cleaned-up executive order on immigration is shot down yet again, with several other blue states following suit. Is there any chance that anything he has on the agenda is going to pass judicial muster with so many Obama appointees runnings our courts?

Plus, The Obamacare’s Repeal and Replace efforts may be dead in the water due to moderates insisting on keeping Medicaid expansion and ultra-conservatives demanding it be tossed out, and quickly. Is there any chance that we won’t have to deal with Obamacare for another four years? read more

American Survival Radio #50

In this episode of American Survival Radio, hosts Joe and Amy Alton discuss the hype around Attorney General Jeff Sessions and a meeting with the Russian Ambassador, who after Gen. Mike Flynn, seems to get around a lot. Why Jeff Sessions shouldn’t quit despite the Left’s demands (heck, they’re demanding every conservative quit just on general principal). Plus Rand Paul’s not happy with Obamacare, and why are Republicans having town halls in person, since they seem to become nothing but town brawls? read more

American Survival Radio #48

In this episode of American Survival Radio, Joe and Amy Alton discuss the fall of Gen. Mike Flynn, the first scalp taken by the media and the Democrats in the new Administration. Also, Scott Puzder drops out of contention for Secretary of Labor, replaced by Alexander Acosta. The battle is on to get a full cabinet for President Trump, with the goal of the Left being the slowing down and sabotage of the new administration’s agenda.

Also, Republicans are in disarray with regards to the repeal and replacing of Obamacare. The affordable care act is unpopular, but replacing it with a plan that doesn’t drop millions off the rolls of the insured is going to be a challenge. If the Republicans don’t take the disenrollment of millions seriously, it’ll be fodder that will hurt them in the 2018 elections. read more
