Govern America | March 5, 2016 | The New Normal

Host: Darren Weeks, John in Tennessee


Media distractions continue as the important things are ignored. John in Tennessee rides shotgun with us and discusses how the price of gasoline is manipulated. We have much this week on the current migration situation in the U.S. and in Europe. IMF chief Christine Lagarde touts the economiic "benefits" of allowing countries to be overrun with refugees. We debunk the oft-repeated lie that the U.S. has a brain drain when it comes to so-called "STEM" jobs. We have audio from two separate Congressional hearings on the border situation as the CPB chief makes a remarkable admission. Also, government and corporate surveillance, Europe employs crisis actors too, SWAT teams, laser weapons, armed drones, and a partnership that is for the "BIRD".
