Orlando Aftermath Focuses on Gun Control, Not Terrorism

The story around the Orlando shootings should focus on one issue: ISIS, along with the majority of Islamic-countries around the world, are anything but tolerant toward the LGBTQ community. The argument, however, seems to be centered around gun control instead.

State Department Report: Clinton Violated Email Rules

The State Department's Inspector General report was not too kind to Hillary Clinton. However, the Clarkcast asks, does this matter given the toxic political envirnoment of today?

In the second half of the show, a California university is looking to establish "criteria" for school speakers, after some students were offended over conservative commentator Ben Shaprio speaking.

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?

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?"

No Longer a 'Participation Trophy' Society

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'

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

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.

http://www.cruiselawnews.com/2016/01/articles/terrorism-1/is-your-cruise-ship-prepared-for-a-terrorist-attack/

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."
