For the April 14th program, we’ll be talking with Rod Dreher, author of The Little Way of Ruthie Leming. This gifted writer, who blogs at The American Conservative, offers a heartfelt tribute to his late sister’s battle with cancer. When she received her diagnosis at the age of 40, Ruthie Leming spent her next 19 months surrounded by loved ones in the small town she grew up in and never left — and without realizing it, the grace and courage of this modest schoolteacher showed what spiritual health can do in the face of disease. Rod Dreher presents a deeply touching meditation on faith, family, community and place.
We will also be honored to have Congressman Tom Tancredo join us in studio for conversation about the Gang of Eight, the future of immigration policy in America, and the overall state of the conservative movement. Is the Republican Party Establishment thinking clearly right now — or are they selling out their voters and their country? The battle over “Amnesty” is a sisyyphean struggle for conservatives, but we cannot underestimate its importance for the future of America.
Plus we’ll review the issue of equal pay, the subject of Kafer’s newest column on the Daily Caller, the outrageous classroom commentary of leftist Professor Darry Sragow at USC, the open desire of Bill Maher to get rid of the Second Amendment, and the astonishing media blackout on the murder trial of Pennsylvania physician Kermit Gosnell. When it comes to principles of “objectivity” in the academy and in the media, we are sensing that now — perhaps more than ever — the flagrancy of leftist bias is distorting America, and not for the better.
