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

Republicans: Beware of Creating Health Care “Orphans”

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

A Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, the American Health Care Act (AHCA), has been proposed and some conservative members of congress are, to put it mildly, not on board.

Kentucky senator Rand Paul calls it “Obamacare Lite”.  Congressman Justin Amash (R, MI) tweets “Obamacare 2.0”. The Freedom Caucus, a group of about three dozen GOP house members, are skeptical and could sink the new plan all by themselves. A number of conservative think tanks are also unhappy with the proposal. 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

The Nation Was Divided Well Before Trump’s Travel Ban

This article first appeared in The Daily Caller

Leftists continue to ramp up their campaign to disrupt the country, the presidency, and the life of the average American. The executive actions taken by Donald Trump, a rare president who follows through on campaign promises, have come at a dizzying pace. Activists are left with hard decisions about which issue to protest and what public space to block on a given day.

The latest kerfuffle surrounds the executive order on immigration from a number of the world’s hot spots. Democrats everywhere consider the order, which affects several Muslim-majority nations, to be proof of rampant racism in the new administration; this despite just 109 of 325,000 travelers (0.03%) temporarily detained. Detained, not arrested, not shackled to balls and chains. read more

American Survival Radio #44

In this issue of American Survival Radio, hosts Joe and Amy Alton discuss the Trump inauguration in detail, plus the actions of a significant minority of Democrats to delegitimize the new President by not attending. One of them is Georgia congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis. When is it acceptable to criticize some who has past good deeds for current misguided misdeeds? Mr. Lewis has, since election to congress in the 1980s, been one of the most partisan Democrats and the least likely to reach across the aisle. read more

American Survival Radio #42

In this episode of American Survival Radio with Joe and Amy Alton, our hosts tackle the issue of Julian Assange, Russia, and the effects of WikiLeaks on the recent election. We, as a country, need stronger cyber-security, but why is no one talking about the fact that the leaks were all true information? If an American reporter leaked this information, would he/she be a hero? Don’t we have a right to know what political elites really think of the nation’s voters?

Also, the Altons discuss how the recent nightclub shootings in Istanbul are following the blueprint from the Orlando shooting of last year, and how nightclubs and bars are especially soft targets for terrorists, just like street crowds have become soft targets for vehicular attacks. read more

Nightclubs: Soft Targets for Terrorists

In an attack reminiscent of the Orlando terror event last year, a popular nightclub became a slaughterhouse on New Year’s Eve when a gunman caused 39 deaths and about 70 injured. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the incident.

As a physician, my focus is how to heal wounds, not how to cause them. A terrorist, however, has quite different goals. Normally, they have a short window of opportunity, and their focus is to cause as many casualties as possible during their brief (hopefully) remaining time on Earth. read more

American Survival Radio #41

In this episode of American Survival Radio with Joe and Amy Alton, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry give the state of Israel a list of demands to keep a two-state solution on the table. The only problem is, there’s no one sitting across from Israel at that table. A recent UN resolution passed with the complicity of an abstention by the United States which declared Israeli settlements in occupied lands to be illegal and in violation of international law. Currently, almost 600,000 Jews live in areas captured during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war and considered to be Palestinian territory. read more

American Survival Radio #40

In this episode of American Survival Radio, Chicago murders have reached 755 in time for Christmas. With Baltimore throwing in 300 more and Washington DC 128 homicides, these three cities are giving other big metropolises a bad name, accounting for more than 50% of the murders in our 30 largest cities.

Plus, it appears that some people don’t want you on their commercial flight if you don’t agree with the political beliefs. At least, that the case with a liberal lawyer and his college professor partner when, shaking with rage, one of them (with a small child in tow) screamed at Ivanka Trump and her three small children. This act got them politely escorted off and placed on the very next flight, although they probably gave Ivanka’s kids nightmares enough to last a lifetime. Image if someone did that with Obama’s kids? read more

Obama to Israel: Drop Dead

In a parting shot to the Jewish state, President Obama directed Samantha Powers, the U.S. delegate to the United Nations to abstain from voting on a resolution to condemn Israeli settlements in occupied Palestinian territory, including portions of Jerusalem.

The resolution declares the settlements “in flagrant violation” of international law. It states, in part, that Israel should: “…immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem” and that the Israeli settlements have “no legal validity”. read more
