FULL SHOW NOTES:

  • Democrats
    • Woodrow Wilson
      • He thought he always knew best, because he thought he knew more than anybody else. Combine that with a powerful humanitarian sensibility, and you get a president who wants to change the world for the betterment of mankind NationalInterest Robert W. Merry
      • Held Germany to a strict standard of not harming Americans even when traveling and then the Lusitania was sunk. We find records 100 years later Britain had the ship labeled as a war ship and she was carrying munitions. 128 American civilians killed.
    • FDR Franklin Delano Roosevelt
      • that he did not end the Great Depression; truly, he only prolonged itThe Thought no other president carried as much disdain and flippant disregard for the constitution than FDR, and no president dismissively broke its rules more frequently. By doing so he set the precedent that the executive branch, charged to enforce the rulings of the other two, could actually just enforce whatever it liked, a notion which greatly restricts freedom in this country to this day.  2012
      • Second Bill of Rights
    • Lyndon B. Johnson TheWeek Damon Linker

      • Civil Rights Act
        • PragerU Candance Owens Video
      • “war on poverty,” Johnson announced his wildly unrealistic goal of eliminating poverty prior to formulating any concrete ideas about how it might be achieved.

    • Barack Obama
  • Most Evil Dictators Article
    • Pol Pot (1.7 to 2.5 million deaths)

    • Hideki Tojo (5 million deaths)
      • His version of homeland security was approving eugenicsmeasures which essentially made a distinction between pure blood and mixed blood Japanese families. He really bought into the Nazi Kool-aid, and held steadfastly with Germany

      • Created a colony called the “Congo Free State”, enslaved its people, and forced them into labor plants
    • Adolf Hitler (17 million deaths)

    • Jozef Stalin (23 million deaths)
      • First Secretary of the Communist Party from 1922 – 1953. After Lenin’s death in 1924, he became the leader of the Soviet Union. Stalin didn’t take long in launching a new economy that screwed up food production across the country so bad it caused massive famine. Between
      • Stalin launched another wonderfully titled initiative called the Great Purge (also known as the “Great Terror”). It was a paranoid campaign to kill off the people who opposed him, and his targets were often executed
    • Mao Zedong (49-78 million deaths)
      • Policy reforms like the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution.
      • He organized mass repressions, established execution quotas, and defended his actions in these early years as necessary for securing power for “The People’s Republic of China”.
      • The first was an effort to rapidly industrialize China. His focus was on making China a premier exporter of steel, and to this end he asked everybody to make it.  Backyard shops, poor quality, no money 20 million starved.
      • Mao started the socialist education movement. He aimed the concept at young ones who would eventually wrest the power away from the older guard. By 1964 this movement was renamed the “four cleanups movement” whose goal was cleansing politics, economics, ideas, and organization of “reactionaries”.
        • Red Guard kill those who did not agree
      • “Down to the Countryside Movement” which forced young intellectuals to move out to the country to become farmers. Up to 7 million
      • 100 flowers movement which just needs an abbreviated mention here. Mao asked people to come forth and tell him how he should govern China. Then flipped and killed them all about 500,000
      • His policies and political purges from 1949 to 1976 caused the deaths of 49 to 78 million people.
      • Then People of China to this day believe that his first 5 years he did 75% Good.
