Before this week, you probably didn't think 2020 could get any crazier. Now we have a Supreme Court nomination fight on our hands. John opens the show this week looking beyond the news everyone else is talking about and tackling issues like judicial activism, the need for a full court before the post-election legal chaos, and how the making of laws should fall squarely on the shoulders of Congress, not the executive or judicial branches.
With all the craziness going, John checks in with long-time friend of the show, author and futurist James Kunstler (www.kunstler.com). They discuss the current state of affairs including when the democrat party really started going off the rails. He goes on to predict where the United States is going economically as well as where the oil industry is headed and he looks at the fate of our country's urban centers.
Finally, we welcome Russell Berman (www.hoover.org), Humanities Professor at Stanford and Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, who examines one of the latest chess pieces in President Trump's foreign policy plan – the agreement between Serbia and Kosovo and their future relationship with Israel. The President was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for this accomplishment. Will he actually win or will political correctness infiltrate another award ceremony?
