The Rise of Secular Humanism in America

Herbert London wrote the book "America's Secular Challenge: The Rise of a New National Religion." As one of America's leading intellectuals, Herbert London is president of the Hudson Institute, and a noted social critic whose work has appeared in nearly every major newspaper and journal. A contributing editor for the St. Croix Review and the American Arts Quarterly, as well as the author of 21 books, Mr. London argues that the rise of radical secularism in the United States is a flaccid response to the challenge presented by the fanaticism of radical Islam.

Secular Humanism wages war against traditional religion using multiculturalism and cultural relativism, materialism, and a belief in scientific reality as the arbiter of human value. However, this belief in secularism is ill equipped to battle head on the oncoming inroads of fanaticism being waged by a zealous enemy with totalitarian ambitions. Secular Humanism has destroyed the West's only beliefs worth defending, and have left us exposed to the monumental battle on the horizon against the rising scurge of Islamism.

Tonight, at 7pm Pacific, 10pm Eastern, Herb London is my guest on the Political Pistachio Radio Revolution. Listen to the program live, or listen to the archive later: HERE.

Gold Star Mom Debbie Lee Honors Son's Final Wish

As we approach Memorial Day, our hearts go out to our fallen military warriors, their families, and their friends. Our prayers especially go out to the wives and mothers of our lost heroes, for they have lost so much. In the case of Debbie Lee, however, she has taken that loss to fuel what she has to give back, and her work of generosity is driven by the final wishes of her son, Marc Lee, the first Navy Seal to lose his life in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

"Pass on the kindness, the love, the precious gift of human life to each other so that when your children come in contact with a great conflict that we are now faced with here in Iraq, that they are people of humanity, of pure motives, of compassion." Marc Alan Lee in his last letter to his mother, Debbie Lee.

Marc Alan Lee was the first Navy Seal killed in the war in Iraq. He lost his life in Operation Iraqi Freedom on August 2, 2006. The moments before his death he single-handedly held off enemy fighters as his team rescued a wounded soldier from a rooftop. Debie Lee, his mother, has experienced a torrent of emotions since the day she lost her son. In Marc's final letter to home he wrote of his wish for Americans to support each other with random acts of kindness. With this idea in mind, Debbie began to implement Marc's dream.

In his final letter home, Marc wrote: "When was the last time you paid for a random stranger's cup of coffee, meal or maybe even a tank of gas? . . . Think to yourself and wonder what it would feel like when the bill for the meal came and you were told it was already paid for. More random acts of kindness like this would change our country and our reputation as a country."

Since Marc's death, Debbie Lee has been touring America to honor her son's final wish. She recently established America's Mighty Warriors dedicated to random acts of kindness for military personnel and their families stateside and overseas.

Her first random act of kindness raised money that she included in a condolence card to the family of another fallen soldier. She then took a wife (who was battling breast cancer), daughter, and granddaughter of a deployed soldier to Easter dinner. Debbie Lee heard of a Marine unit in San Diego scheduled to deploy without essential EOD power lock tools, and thanks to America's Mighty Warriors the unit will be traveling with the tools.

On Mother's Day, Debbie took other Gold Star Moms to lunch, followed by a limo ride to a mall where she organized an event based on the hit show "Amazing Race." Clues led moms to retail stores who donated gifts to pamper these women who have lost so much. Plans for a similar Father's Day event is in the works.

Debbie Lee met with President Bush, and appeared onstage at the 2007 Country Music Awards, where Tim McGraw performed his new song "If You're Reading This" which honors those in the U.S. military who gave their lives in service to this nation. she has also traveled to Iraq and Guantanamo Bay to personally thank troops serving overseas.

Tonight, Debbie Lee joins Political Pistachio Radio. Join us live at 7:00 PM Pacific, or listen to the archive later, HERE.

Former Palestinian Terrorist Speaks Out Against Islamic Jihad

Walid Shoebat joins Political Pistachio Radio tonight during the second hour to discuss:

- As the Taliban and Al Qaeda make inroads into Pakistan, it comes as no surprise to Former Terrorist Walid Shoebat because he predicted it over two years ago!

- Iran has a missile that can reach Israel, and their nukes are nearly finished. Now that Israel is in Iran's crosshairs, what, if anything, should the U.S. do?

- FBI foils homegrown New York Muslim terror attack on a Jewish Temple and military aircraft! The men reportedly planned to use C-4 plastic explosives to detonate a car outside a Bronx Jewish Temple, and to fire missiles at military planes at Newburgh, New York Air National Guard base - but when the deal came down, the would-be terrorists were sold fake weapons and were arrested. With the potential of imminent attacks on U.S. soil, how can the United States prevent the worst? Would understanding fundamentalist Islam be a start?

- The terrorists don't care who the president of the United States is, but are emboldened by a show of weakness by Barack Obama. Walid Shoebat will discuss how our president is showing weakness, and why this emboldens Jihadists.

- Closing Guantanamo Bay prison is dangerous. Allowing Islamic Terrorists from Gitmo into the American prison system would be devastating to our national security. But if the prison in Cuba is closed, what to do with the prisoners?

- The Holy Bible is a Middle Eastern book, and Walid Shoebat will also shed light on prophecy from a perspective Western Christians never recognized before - until now!

Join us tonight live on Political Pistachio Radio. The program begins live at 7pm Pacific, 10pm Eastern, and then into the second hour of the program, Walid Shoebat will join us live. Tune in to tonight's show live, or to the archive later, HERE.

The New World Order and the Global Recession

Conspiracy theorists used to ramble on about the coming New World Order, arguing that part of what would bring on such a sinister system will be the drive for a global currency. Then, the conspiracy became a headline when at the G-20 Summit British Prime Minister Gordon Brown proclaimed that the New World Order was on the horizon.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is being seen by some as the vessel to bring about a global currency, and to bring about the reality of a global governance.

Rob Roselli maintains that bankers created the Federal Reserve for the reason of creating something like the IMF, and unless we realize this soon and change direction, the United States many not be able to escape a perilous future of globalism, and the New World Order.

The author of "The THEorYofLIVEvolution," Rob Roselli is my guest tonight on Political Pistachio Radio, and he believes the drive for a "New World Order" is afoot, and it is not an accident. Join the program live at 7pm Pacific/10pm Eastern, or on archive, HERE.

Alan Keyes Arrested At Notre Dame - Alan Keyes if out on bail, or his "right-hand-man" Randall Terry, to be Guest Tonight

Abortion, the Catholic Church, President Obama, Notre Dame, and Alan Keyes

"If we don't wake up and work to see that it happens, we will not see another election" - Alan Keyes

More Americans are Pro-Life than Pro-Choice, according to Gallup, for the first time since 1995 (I believe Pro-Life has always outnumbered the Pro-Abortion supporters of the slaughter of the unborn, but the polls have never picked up on that). The Catholic Church agrees that Abortion is murder, and the Pope has determined that a Catholic cannot be Pro-Abortion.

Notre Dame, a Catholic University in South Bend, Indiana, has invited Barack Obama, a staunch abortion supporter (and infanticide supporter) to speak at the commencement ceremony May 17. The Catholic Church calls the invite by Notre Dame scandalous, and insult is added to injury by the fact that Obama will also be given an honorary degree at the event, as well. Alan Keyes has been protesting this appearance by Obama calling it a betrayal of babies.

Alan Keyes was arrested again for his protests yesterday, but it is in the works to get him out on bail today. If he is not in jail at the time of the start of Political Pistachio Radio tonight at 10 pm Eastern, Alan Keyes will be our guest to discuss what is going on. If he is still in jail, his right-hand-man, Randall Terry will be my guest (Randall Terry has also been a frequent guest on Fox News programs).

Join us at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific tonight on Political Pistachio Radio HERE.

UPDATE: Alan Keyes is free, and will be on the show tonight!!!

Jim Jacobson: Chavez and Ahmadinijad are Uncommon Allies, Taliban is Spreading Killing Frenzy Into Pakistan

Jim Jacobson says: "The enemy of my enemy is my friend," is an ancient Arabic proverb that explains the worldly wisdom of why Iranian President Ahmadinijad is so so friendly with Venezuela President Hugo Chavez.

He is also monitoring closely the plague-like expansion of the Islamofacist Taliban into Pakistan.

President of Christian Freedom International (CFI), Mr. Jacobson served as a policy analyst in the Reagan White House, served as political appointee in the administration of George Herbert Walker Bush, and was senior legislative assistant in the U.S. Senate.

Tonight, Jim Jacobson is the guest on the Political Pistachio Radio Revolution to discuss these issues, and more. Tune in live at 7pm Pacific Time, or catch the archive later, HERE.

Alan Keyes To Be Arrested At Notre Dame

Dr. Alan Keyes is a multiple Republican and Independent Presidential Candidate, a two time Republican U.S. Senate Candidate in Maryland, and a former Illinois U.S. Senate Candidate that ran against Barack Obama for that seat. Alan Keyes is also a former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Economic and Social Council, where he represented America's sovereign interests in the U.N. General Assembly, under Ronald Reagan. He spent 11 years with the U.S. State Department, is a former Assistant Secretary of State, served in the U.S. Foreign Service, and was on the staff of the National Security Council before becoming Ronald Reagan's Assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations. He was President of Citizens Against Government Waste from 1989 to 1991, and is the founder of National Taxpayers' Action Day.

Alan Keyes is a genuine conservative whose political views are based on America's founding ideals, including the Declaration of Independence, and the U.S. Constitution. He is pro-life, pro-family, and pro-traditional marriage, without compromise. He is currently active in the nationwide debate regarding America's moral crisis.

With a Ph.D. in government from Harvard, his dissertation was on constitutional theory. He served as Interim President of Alabama A&M University in 1991. He speaks French, and has studied three other languages, including ancient Greek.

Keye's well-known criticism of Barack Obama includes declaring that the Obama Democrats are attempting to change our form of government into a Marxist System that denies freedoms to the people, and gives full control of the nation to a tyrannical government.

Last week Dr. Alan Keyes and 21 other protesters were arrested on the Notre Dame University campus for trespassing. They were there to protest Notre Dame's decision to let the pro-abortion President of the United States speak at the commencement this coming weekend, May 17. Notre Dame is a Catholic University, and the Catholic Pope has proclaimed the Catholic Church to be pro-life.

This upcoming Friday Alan Keyes is expecting to be arrested again while protesting on Notre Dame's campus. He will once again be protesting the fact that abortion supporter President Barack Obama is going to be at Notre Dame University in Indiana to receive an honorary doctorate at Catholic Notre Dame's graduation, and to give a commencement address. Dr. Keyes sees this as a betrayal of the babies by Notre Dame, and intends to lift up the standard that protects the life of innocent children.

The following evening Dr. Alan Keyes should be safely back in his hotel room, awaiting my phone call. At 10:00 pm Saturday Evening, May 16, the Political Pistachio Radio Revolution is scheduled to be the first show of any kind on radio or television to interview Dr. Alan Keyes after he is released from jail. You may tune into the show on Blog Talk Radio for this important interview HERE.
