Dear Friends:  It is time for our annual Christmas Show on Canto Talk, and we have something very special planned for Tuesday, December 11th (click HERE at 10 am Pacific/12 noon Central or 1 pm Eastern or after for the archived show).

Silvio Canto Jr. and I will be welcoming Rik Fox, the most interesting Polish-American man in the world, for a look at Polish holiday traditions. This show was inspired by my 23&Me DNA test that dispelled family lore and showed I was nearly 50% Polish.

Rik, an iconic Heavy metal artist and Polish historian extraordinaire, will also be sharing an exciting update: He has joined a band named “Angeles” that will be playing at the legendary Whisky-a-Go-Go on December 29!

Personally, my favorite take from this news is that the “Angeles” logo features wings…very appropriate as Rik is an expert on the Polish Winged Hussars!

We will also have a news update for Poland. It seems the country is being targeted by green justice advocates because it still relies on coal for its energy.

For centuries, from the start of Europe’s industrial revolution, through war and peace, and the long years of communist rule, coal was king in Poland. It was the land’s precious and bountiful gift — and Polish miners were the nation’s working-class heroes.

But the world now looks askance at coal. It is as ubiquitous as it is dirty, and burning it for power releases — more than any other fuel source — the miasma of the greenhouse gases warming the planet.

Encircled by coal mines, representatives from around the world are gathered now in nearby Katowice, Poland, for the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, where countries will argue over the ambitious goals required to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Fortunately, the Poles don’t seem inclined to follow the fun, new globalism trends.

Finally, we will take a look at Polish Christmas traditions:

It should be a fun and festive show!

Dear Friends: As promised, I will be returning to Canto Talk to discuss the California midterm election results. Please join me and the most interesting Cuban-American talk show host in the world, Silvio Canto, Jr. by clicking HERE 10 am Pacific/12 noon Central/1 pm Eastern (or after for the archived show).

We will be joined this week by Dawn Wildman, Director of the Coalition for Policy Reform.

We will be covering a wide-variety of topics:

Please join us for one hell of a show…literally.

Dear Friends:

I will be spending a part of my Halloween celebrating with Silvio Canto Jr talking about science, spies and scary California. Please join us for the fun at 10 AM Pacific/12 noon Central/1 pm Eastern on Wednesday, Oct. 31; click HERE for live show or after for archived podcast.

Our featured guest is a long-time friend of mine, Dr. Martin Fricke of San Diego, a nuclear physicist and Senior Fellow of The American Physical Society. Martin has been really helpful to me, as I work on countering the #FakeScience behind Climate Change propaganda.

Martin has recently published his first book, Soviet Science Spies: A Counterespionage Story

Soviet Science Spies

Martin’s new novel, “Soviet Science Spies”, is an amalgam of physics, James Bond high jinks, and fun. It is the story of Sovier spies seeking to steal nuclear scientific secrets, and the Bond-style hero faces the international challenges with verve, savvy, and flair!

The protagonist in this take, Dan Lloyd, is a nuclear physicist who travels through the former Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc countries, to safe guard national secrets and enjoy the local hospitality while juggling a fairly robust and complicated series of romantic relationships.

There is a really great appendix on the physics discussed, which makes this an unusual offering for entertainment reading. It will be a lot of fun to discuss his concept and approach to his first book, and some lessons learned in self-publishing.

And because of the topic, we will hit related news items:

Dear Readers: I am thrilled to with Silvio Canto, Jr. this week, and we are having one of our “Legal Insurrection” shows. Please join us on Tuesday, September 11, at 10 am Pacific Time/ 12 noon Central Time, and 1 pm Eastern Time by CLICKING HERE (or you can download an archived podcast later).

Our guest will be Legal Insurrection’s gifted and witty political cartoonist, Antonio F. Branco. We will be discussing his new book, Make America Laugh Again.

LI #99 Make America Laugh Again

We will have a lot to discuss, in addition to Antonio’s wonderful, new book and our memories of September 11, 2001.

So please join us for what promises to be another awesome show.

I would imagine that our highly active and entertaining President inspires a lot of his work. It’s a good thing that Trump will be around for 32 terms, giving Antonio a ton of material to use.

Also, we will do a news round-up:

* Mexico’s election of a super-left anti-Trumper.
* The Supreme Court nomination.
* The #WalkAway Campaign.
* The media’s ongoing Trump Derangement Syndrome.
* The LARPing, cosplay-style inanity that the immigration protests have become.

Join us! We are sure to make you laugh…again and again!!!

Dear Friends:  It will be my pleasure to be a guest on Canto Talk this Thursday, May 10th at 10 am PT/12 noon CT/1 pm ET. Please click HERE then for the live podcast, or after for the archived show.

Our topic will be cultural appreciation, as Legal Insurrection is hosting a Cultural Appreciation Day on its website this Saturday, May 12:

If you’ve followed the news lately (and we assume that if you’re a regular reader, you do), you’ve been MADE aware that something as innocuous as a thrift store prom purchase triggers half the internet. The social justice warriors beam in from social justice utopia to be judgy, vile, and completely ignorant bullies over something they call “cultural appropriation.”

I’m so old, I remember when our elementary teachers taught us America was a great big ol’ melting pot made of people and cultures from the furthest reaches of the globe. Put together, the cultural cocktail made for something admirable and unique.

But anyway, on Saturday, May 12, we will celebrate our celebrations of other cultures. Look for pictures and stories from LI authors appreciating other cultures, a social justice sin these days.

We are hoping fans will send in pictures, comments and stories to: newsletter -at – legalinsurrection.com

We will contrast this with clear, cultural appropriation…as demonstrated at the Met Gala this week.

Catholics have vented their fury at last night’s ‘disrespectful’ and ‘blasphemous’ Met Gala theme, which encouraged celebrities to wear outfits inspired by Christianity.

The annual fundraising fete in New York brings out Hollywood’s elite to celebrate the spring exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, with this year’s titled: ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.’

Pop star Rihanna created the biggest stir, attending in a short skirt, robe and mitre-like hat reminiscent of the Pope’s headgear.

Katy Perry – who met Pope Francis on April 28 – also drew a lot of attention by coming dressed as an angel, complete with huge feathered wings.

Social media users were up in arms over some of the more outrageous outfits – with some saying they had been left ‘upset and distraught’ over the choice of theme.

My religion not costume

And, as always, we will have a round-up of what’s hot in the news…which is always a lot. I may have to try predicting tomorrow’s topics by looking at President Trump’s Twitter feed.

 

Dear Reader: It is my pleasure to announce that I will be a guest on Canto Talk this Thursday, March 22, at 10 am Pacific/12 noon Central/1 pm Eastern.  Click HERE for the live show, or to catch the archived podcast after.

The topic will be “Spring Break” in California!

SpringBreak_2017_Misc_Gallery44

We will cover the fact that the small city of Los Alamitos has rejected California’s “Sanctuary State” law outright.

I will review the news that San Francisco has banned the sale of fur.

We will look at the California travel ban to some red states, that forced a college team to miss a NASA science competition in Alabama.

Finally, we will report on President Trump’s whirlwind visit to the state to inspect the Border Wall prototypes, and his administration suing the state over its “Sanctuary State” status.

One program is hardly enough for all the crazy, so it certainly will be a wild show.

Programming note: There my be a guest appearance by the Young Prince, who will be on Spring Break!
