Obama Threatens Education Funds Over Bathroom Debate

Last Thursday, a federal judge ruled that the Obama administration is unconstitutionally spending federal money to fund the president’s health care law. In what was seemingly an effort to distract from this fatal blow to the Affordable Care Act, the President's administration announced new federal guidelines to schools around transgendered bathroom policies. Those that did not comply would have federal funds withheld.

Can We Still Save the Republic?

Can We Still Save the Republic?

There is never a shortage of headlines every week. Here are a few stories that caught the Clarkcast's attention:

- Harvard is banning gender-specific student groups like fraternities and sororities because they are not inclusive and promote privilege
- The FDA is spending $36MM on anti-smoking ads targeting the LGBTQ community
- Police will be ticketing parents for their bullying children
- The DOJ is threatening to cut funds to North Carolina if they don't reverse the state's recent bathroom-gender law

With all the above mentioned, is it still even possible to save the Republic? Or are we just "slowing down its eminent demise?"

We are no longer a "participation trophy" society. No, this is not cause for celebration. Instead, our nation has further regressed into a cesspool of self-entitled, safe-space crying cowards.

Middle Schoolers Asked to Check Their 'Privilege'

Got white privilege? That was a question asked to a 12-year old in her Spanish class.

She came home with an assignment given in her seventh grade class asking, "How much privilege do you have?" The assignment instructed students to circle the boxes that apply to them in the categories of race, skin color, sex, gender, sexual orientation and disability. The debate around "social justice" is ever present within our colleges and universities (and beyond), but now it has reached into middle schools.

At the bottom of the hour, the author of the book "The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism" Steve Goreham gives an update in the mad, mad, mad world of global warming.

Trump's Top Three Functions of the Federal Government

Trump's Top Three Functions of the Federal Government

Many have speculated that the establishment GOP might toss out the Republican rules and select a "fresh face" during the convention. This past week, long-time GOP strategist Karl Rove suggested exactly that. Joining the millions of [soon to be?] disenfranchised voters, Matt vocally condemns such talk and predicts only chaos if the powers-to-be run with this idea.

Next, many still continue to question Donald Trump as a serious liberty-minded candidate. Most recently, Trump was asked, "What do you believe are the three primary functions of the federal government?" Trump's answer included healthcare and education - roles that the federal government should have little to no involvement. He did, however, somewhat clarify his statement when pressed by the moderator.

To help understand the appeal of Trump to liberty-minded voters, the Clarkcast invited Rich Hoffman on the program. Rich is a strong support of Trump's candidacy and attempts to show Matt "the light."

Obama on Socialism vs. Capitalism: 'Just Choose What Works'

President Obama and his family traveled to Cuba this week; a first in nearly 90 years for a sitting U.S. president to visit the communism country. While many view this trip as sign of healing relationships, one painful and obvious fact was absent from the national conversation: Cuba is a murderous, oppression-driven communism country ran by the blood-soaked hands of Fidel and Raúl Castro.

On the heals of the Cuban trip, the president later told an audience of Argentinian youth that the differences between socialism and capitalism make interesting discussions but, ultimately, they should just do whatever works.

“So often in the past there has been a division between left and right, between capitalists and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate,” Obama said during a town hall meeting in Buenos Ares.

“Those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical, and just choose from what works,” Obama continued. “You don’t have to worry about whether it neatly fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory. You should just decide what works.”

Why is a Governor Called Before Congress?

It's the last Clarkcast episode before Spring 2016, and Matt starts the show with a little reggae to toast in the new season. The happy vibes turn into an episode of "The Twilight Zone" as news of Lindsey Graham, Mitt Romney, and other establishment figures embrace Ted Cruz. What's next for the 2016 presidential hopefuls?

In the main part of this episode, Matt takes a different look at Michigan Governor Rick Snyder's testimony to the U.S. Congress over the Flint water crisis. Speaking purely in the abstract, why is a state governor being summoned by the federal government to be grilled over a local issue? As a country, we have moved well beyond the framer's constitutional intentions, and it has dire consequences.

Why Many Millennials are Socialists

Why are millennials attracted to socialism? Joy Pullman, managing editor at The Federalist, argues that it's the lack of understanding "socialism," coupled with decades of indoctrination.

Trump the Idea, Not the Candidate

Since the beginning of Donald Trump's candidacy, the billionaire's biggest selling point to his base has been border security and a Mexican-funded wall. This past week, former Mexican president Vicente Fox publicly cursed at the idea of Mexico funding anything of the sort. This "America-first" attitude by The Donald is one of the main reasons he's dominating in the polls. Despite the Clarkcast applauding this "Making America Great Again" tone, Matt still questions Trump as a candidate. A mixed flood of calls soon follow.

Cruise Ships Not Prepared for Terrorism

Is your cruise ship prepared for a terrorist attack? This is a question asked by maritime lawyer, Jim Walker.

Jim argues, "Contrary to people who want to believe that the ships are armed but the cruise lines don't want to tip their hand to the terrorists, there is in fact no hidden cache of weapons ready to be deployed by the cruise ship's security forces."

Senator Obama vs President Obama on SCOTUS Nominations

Immediately after the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, the president announced his intentions to fill the vacancy on the High Court in the remaining months of his presidency. This was met with sharp criticism from the GOP. Despite the president arguing about his Constitutional duties, then-Senator Obama had a different stance on Bush's nomination.

Police Officer: Illegal to "Offend"

A police officer was caught on video citing a street preacher for "disorderly conduct" just off the campus of the University of Texas. The reason? The officer said the man “offended” a student.

Watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mISSV--OFEU

On the Clarkcast, Matt has continued to argue that our freedoms are being eroded away with each passing moment, and this example only amplifies that argument. Also, this incident speaks to our "participation trophy" society where no one can be offended.

In the second half of the show, Hunter Swogger from the University of Michigan's conservative student newspaper, The Michigan Daily, plugs an upcoming event around "feminism." Despite the open forum and debate-driven even, leftists on campus continue to contradict their "open minded" and "tolerance" viewpoints.

Media Obsesses over Donald Trump as a Socialist Nearly Wins Iowa

A socialist nearly won Iowa. A man who will bring forth economic destruction with the promises of "free" entitlements and heavy taxation nearly won the first step in the Democrat Party nomination process.

Meanwhile, the media is obsessed with Donald Trump...

David Harsanyi from The Federalist discusses his latest article, "A Socialist Nearly Won Iowa. Will The Media Stop Obsessing About Donald Trump 24/7?"

With Donald Trump skipping the latest Republican debate, it was clear Ted Cruz was going to take a few hits as the second front-runner. Only days before the Iowa caucuses, the Texas Senator found himself being berated by almost everyone onstage, including the moderators.

Next, more trouble with Hillary Clinton as the FBI's email server investigation heats up. Even leftist outlets like MSNBC are admitting the situation seems bleak for the former Secretary of State.

In the second half of the program, Thomas LaDuke from FTR Radio joins Matt on the air to discuss the GOP debate, primaries, and the latest in the Clinton scandal.

Al Gore's Armageddon in 4, 3, 2, 1

Ten years ago, Al Gore predicted the Earth would be at a point of no return. If you listened to this live radio broadcast, you had less than four days, according to Gore. If you're listening to this as a podcast, then this further proves the former vice president was only fear mongering. Junk science, at its best.

Next, State Senator Patrick Colbeck calls into the Clarkcast to discuss Michigan education standards in social studies and science, then gives an update on the Flint water crisis.

Dr. Dave Janda, orthopedic surgeon and host of "Operation Freedom" on WAAM Radio, then calls into the Clarkcast to voice his health concerns over the Flint water crisis.

Last, why are millennials overwhelmingly supporting Bernie Sanders? A fellow millennial himself, the host of the Clarkcast is somewhat puzzled by this logic. Granted, the socialist from Vermont promises "free" college tuition, student debt forgiveness, and $15/hour minimum wage. These are quite attractive to young adults, but have they thought about the economics?

Clearly, "no."

Joining Matt for this segment is Bre Payton, millennial politics and pop-culture writer at "The Federalist."
