Ninety-seven percent of the world's scientists agree: climate change is caused by man. Global warming alarmists often cite this statistic without question, but is it true?
During a Senate hearing, the president of the environmental advocacy group, The Sierra Club, refused to acknowledge any opposing data and facts that were presented by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). Instead, the group seemingly "Pled the Fifth" by declaring the debate over, repeating the "ninety-seven percent" statistic. This prompted Matt to uncover the shocking story behind the so-called consensus on global warming: it consists of only 79 respondents to a survey!
In the second half of the show, a University of Texas professor gives two of the most ridiculous reasons against concealed carry on campus.
Yet another campus shooting has stunned the country. Immediately following the news of this horrific attack, renewed cries of gun control could be heard from the president, members of congress, and talking heads on cable news. While these events are indeed tragic, very few are pointing to the common denominator among all of these shootings; they all take place in "gun free zones."
Joining Matt for the entire hour is Rich Hoffman, author of www.overmanwarrior.com and the new book, "The Curse of Fort Seven Mile." Rich's latest blog post highlights this elephant in the room, and the next steps we must take as a nation:
Next, yet another scandal rocks the U.S. Secret Service. An assistant director and at least 45-known employees leaked personal information about Republican Representative Jason Chaffetz in an attempt to embarass the Congressman for his committee's investigations into the agency.
Last, Nancy Pelosi believes men have no say in reproduction, women's health, or abortion. Stay tuned for this stunning audio.
The day after Pope Francis' address to Congress, Speaker John Boehner announced his resignation. Some have been touting his leadership as a glowing example of conservatism, while others reveal Boehner's true "accomplishments."
Next, in response to the Pope's visit, many are embracing the pontiff's anti-capitalistic stance, calling for an end to free markets. U.S. politicians like Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders continue their war against Trickle Down Economics.
Last, the NSA director has testified against the use of private servers by government officials. He said any foreign leader using such a server would present an opportunity for the United States' intelligence community.
The head of the AFL-CIO union, Richard Trumka, made a stunning statement this past week; he doesn't know the difference between a Democrat and a socialist. Last month, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was stumped over the same question.
The answer is easy: there is little difference.
The latest push from the far left is "free college" education. Obama, Clinton, and Sanders are all pushing various plans for this new entitlement. Some even call it a "right." With a debt of almost $19 trillion and a staggering economy, no one can answer how they'll pay for this.
Kanye West announces his White House run for 2020.
Democratic candidate and self-described socialist Bernie Sanders is pushing healthcare as a "human right." While this may sound wonderful on paper, how well does it work in reality? GOP candidate and medical doctor Rand Paul clearly outlines the flaw with pushing healthcare into a single payer system.
RELATED: VA scandal shatters any argument for single payer healthcare (http://www.clarkcast.com/podcasts/va-scandal-shatters-any-argument-for-single-payer-healthcare)
307,000 veterans may have died waiting for Veterans Affairs healthcare, according to a report by the VA Inspector General this week. In other words, hundreds of thousands of our veterans passed away before their applications for care were processed. The VA system has come under intense scrutiny these past few years over cover-ups and incompetency - all at the cost of veterans' lives.
With the self-described socialist Bernie Sanders advocating for a single-payer healthcare as a "human right," what proponent of such a system can assure anyone that it'll be different from the VA? After all, the VA is a single-payer system run by the government. You'll hear a compelling argument against any single-payer system in this country, plus the audio to back those claim up.
At the end of the show, you'll hear Marine veteran Michael Whaley's passionate rant against the racist push from the Black Lives Matter campaign. ALL lives matter, period.
Matt calls into WAAM's "On the Edge with Thayrone" broadcast to react to a recent College Fix article titled, "Students will be marked down if they write ‘mankind’ in women’s studies class."

During a recent campaign speech on women's health, Hillary Clinton compared Republicans to terrorists. The Saul Alinsky rulebook is in full use, and the president recently followed suit by also comparing Republicans to terrorism over the Iran deal. Clearly, there is a double standard in this country for rhetoric.
Next, ABC News reports Bill Clinton had asked the State Department's permission for North Korea and Congo speech invites, despite the countries' deplorable relations to the United States.
Last, how far can political correctness take us? A comedian breaks down the extremes of our society in 2015 America.
Illegal immigration is back in the spotlight, now focused on the issue around "anchor babies," or children born to noncitizen mothers here in the United States. The newest Saul Alinsky tactic is to coin this term as "offensive." However, seemingly all of the 2016 GOP candidates aren't backing down.
Next, Hillary Clinton gives a "coy" response to a reporter's question around her email scandal... or perhaps it's a "mocking" response?
Last, the recent Ashley Madison hack has revealed many top-government officials involved in the affair-dating website. Is there a national security risk here?
Hitting the current "news cycle" is the scandal surrounding Hillary Clinton's use of her own private server for government business. Despite the stories that have surfaced so far detailing top secret, classified information on these illegal servers, no official criminal investigation has begun. Will this scandal run its course, then fade into the dustbin of history like the IRS/Lois Lerner email scandal? Only time will tell.
Next, for those that support the Iranian deal, the Clarkcast airs must-hear audio from "Veterans Against the Deal." This video features medically retired Staff Sgt. Robert Bartlett's recount of how he was injured in 2005.
In the second half of the show, Matt's good buddy and music radio host JMack joins the show to talk about the transformation of radio. Where is this medium headed next, and how can YOU take part in this revolution?
Carly Fiorina raised a few eyebrows Thursday night during the first GOP Debate that evening. During a post-debate interview, she schooled MSNBC host Chris Matthews on a Hillary Clinton claim.
Last Thursday evening featured the first 2016 GOP debate. One of the main highlights included the clash between Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie over the NSA's collection of phone records. It was the highlight of the evening, but also served as an important reminder of the ongoing Constitutional debate in our nation.
Next, Carly Fiorina raised a few eyebrows Thursday night as well. During a post-debate interview, she schooled MSNBC host Chris Matthews.
After the Clarkcast's recent show around the self-described socialist Bernie Sanders rising in the Democrats' polls, Matt thought it was only appropriate to revive this 2010 skit. Enjoy.
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was stumped after being asked a simple question on political philosophy, “What is the difference between a Democrat and a socialist?” With a self-described socialist gunning for the Democratic nomination, it's not difficult to see the radical shift within the party. That said, it's time for the average Democrat to have an honest conversation within their ranks to decide which direction they truly want to go.
Next, Secretary of State John Kerry is offering devastating testimony over the Iran nuclear deal. The audio is stunning, to say the least.
You have a right to defense yourself, lethally if needed. In 21st Century America though, the legal system views a self-defense shooter as "guilty until proven innocent." So how can you, the law-abiding citizen, protect yourself and your family?
Second Call Defense is a program that offers immediate, nationwide, 24-hour support for gun owners who are forced to defend themselves or their family with a firearm. It is managed exclusively by Second Amendment advocates and gun rights defense attorneys who carry firearms for protection every day. George Lang and attorney Sean Maloney speak with Matt on the air about Second Call Defense and give listeners life-changing advice on personal protection.

In the wake of Kathryn Steinle's murder by an illegal alien, the city of San Francisco remains unapologetic for their policies that offered sanctuary for the killer.
The Obama Administration is touting a victory with the nuclear deal with Iran. Given that country's threat against our country and Israel, why would we consider ANY nuclear deal?
Until Donald Trump's recent remarks on illegal immigration, none of the 2016 candidates were talking about the issue. Many of the big-issues of our day, like the U.S. debt for example, are not under the political spotlight.
In the last segment, the show shifts focus on the Iranian deal struck by the president. The Obama Administration is touting a victory with the nuclear deal with Iran. Given that country's threat against our country and Israel, why would we consider ANY nuclear deal?
