Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. The Most Informed vs. the Least Informed

 

“…I used to think that it was the most informed people in America who were going to save the country. And I’ve started to think maybe it’s the least informed people in America who are going to save the country, because those of us who are the most informed are busy smacking each other across the head on a regular basis.” — Ben Shapiro

Ben Shapiro had an interesting interview with Glenn Beck, who came across as more likable than I often find him. Perhaps it’s that he’s selling a new book. But a worthwhile conversation.

 Abandoned buildings in Detroit Four years ago, someone predicted an all out attack on the Church. He traveled to Greece to show the fallout from anarchists, economic instability, battles between law enforcement and inner city residents, a raging heroin epidemic, and it reminded me of our inner city problems today. He predicted many times the eruption of […]

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Brad Thor: Trump is an Extinction Level Threat to American Democracy

 

bradthor2Best-selling spy novel author Brad Thor just gave a remarkable interview on the Glenn Beck show in which he passionately explained why Donald Trump represents “an extinction level” threat to American democracy. I’m in full agreement. Here are Thor’s remarks, as reported by Lori, a journalist employed by the Beck organization. Everyone should read this.

“I think Trump is an extinction-level event potentially for our republic, for democracy. This is one of the greatest crises our nation has seen since the Great Depression, since World War II — is a potential Donald Trump presidency. It is a disaster for liberty,” Thor said. Glenn doesn’t often struggle to have his voice heard, but Thor’s passion overwhelmed the conversation.

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Facebook and the Rise of Conservative Grievance Politics

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook.

When conservatives criticized Facebook for spiking right-leaning content, CEO Mark Zuckerberg did something odd for a liberal tech titan: he listened. The kajillionaire invited several leading conservative voices to fly out to the left coast and share their concerns in person. Despite Zuckerberg’s sickening oversight of not inviting yours truly, I was impressed that he was savvy enough to call a summit.

Sure, his motivation was probably more PR and business development than the robust exchange of ideas, but you don’t see the New York Times or NBC News reacting this way to a couple days of snarky blog posts about media bias. Do I think Facebook will shed its liberal worldview and use Trending Topics to promote “Trump Correctly Accuses Bill Clinton of Rape” above “Lena Dunham Inspires Millions by Eating Lasagna Naked?” Of course not. Facebook is a progressive company staffed by progressive professionals who swim in a progressive ecosystem. But by starting a dialogue with conservatives, he might tip off his staff that half of the company’s users don’t enthusiastically support Hillary or Bernie.

So Glenn Beck wrote something about the recent meet-up between Facebook and Conservatives. According to Beck, the Conservatives basically wanted affirmative action for their group with diversity training, and some Conservative leaders demanded (in Beck’s view) that Facebook hire more Mormons, because 2% of the country is Mormon while also taking 6 months of the employees’ time for […]

When I read the authors’ first Agenda 21 novel, I thought it was a superb dystopian view of the living hell into which anti-human environmental elites wish to consign the vast majority of the human race who are to be their serfs. I wrote at the time “This is a book which begs for one […]
