Episode 20: Can the Government Steal Your Stuff? Yes. It's Called Civil Asset Forfeiture. (Par

In the last podcast episode, I talked about how law enforcement agencies at the local, state and federal levels have been misusing U.S. civil asset forfeiture laws to seize billions in property and money from ordinary law-abiding Americans. They're taking homes, cars, boats, and even the cash out of your wallet. In this episode, you'll hear about how the feds are taking civil asset forfeiture abuse one step farther and literally stealing money out of the bank accounts of citizens who have done nothing wrong. In this episode, I talk to grocer who came to the U.S. to follow the American dream but then one day the IRS suddenly and without any justification sucked $35,000 from his bank account

In this age, Americans place George Washington on a pedestal and think of him as the Founding Father who was above politics.

In this episode, I'll talk with author and historian John Ferling. He has written a dozen books on the subject of the American Revolution including The Ascent of George Washington: The Hidden Pol

Episode 16: George Washington Deserves His Own Day

In this President's Day episode, I'll provide a brief history of the holiday and talk about how our founding father George Washington has really gotten shortchanged with this whole President's Day thing. I'll look at the many ways in which our country would not be the same or might not even exist today if it hadn't been for our first President and our greatest patriot. I'm making the case for why George Washington deserves his own day. Click here to listen to the full podcast episode.
