Govern America | October 10, 2015 | Refashion the Social Compact

Hosts: Darren Weeks, Nancy Levant

 

Good news as people stand up for their rights. A warning about computing "in the cloud". Is living in steel boxes the future of "sustainable" housing? As the United Nations promotes the notion that meat is bad for the planet, the media begins conditioning the public that eating bugs is trendy, nutritious, and healthy. Trans-Pacific Partnership "deal" reached, the secret agreement will be heading for a ratification vote. What will it mean for the American economy? Also, the White House Summit on Workers Voice, Ben Bernanke's pond thaws, the IMF warns of an economic collapse, the Center for Global Development's initiative and partners, and why communist China's chilling system of scoring its citizens is the technocratic model for the world.

Actualities we used from the speech...

 

Obama out of touch with mainstream America. Marvels that someone can't "just hop on a plane".

 

Community Organizer / Marxist Obama: We Must "Refashion the Social Compact"

 

Obama promotes "New Deal" socialism and programs that foster dependency and empower government to intrude into people's lives.
