Judge Andrew Napolitano returns to the show to discuss his new book, released just today: Suicide Pact: The Radical Expansion of Presidential Powers and the Assault on Civil Liberties. It begins at the very beginning of U.S. history and carries the story through the president. A magnificent accomplishment.
Winslow Wheeler of the Straus Military Reform Project of the Project on Government Oversight joined me today to discuss the bipartisan clamor to emancipate the Pentagon from its unprecedented “austerity.” Is a lack of money the problem at the Pentagon? Have a listen! And check out Wheeler’s article “The War Against Austerity.”

Today I talked to Murray Polner, co-author with me of We Who Dared to Say No to War: American Antiwar Writing from 1812 to Now (Basic Books, 2008). Murray has spent his life on the left, and has a compelling history of antiwar work in his own right. A very engaging conversation.
The great Jim Grant, publisher of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer, joined me today to discuss his new book, released tomorrow, called The Forgotten Depression — 1921: The Crash That Cured Itself.
Grant, who was invited to testify at one of Ron Paul’s monetary hearings, is the man Dr. Paul named as his choice for Fed chairman should he be elected president.
It’s a great conversation. Grant wrote to my producer to thank me “for one of the best interviews I have ever had the pleasure to be a part of.”
Michael Malice makes the case, and a spirited exchange follows. Have a listen!
