2015-05-09: Attacking choice and competition in our education system

[display_podcast]

This weekend, Glen talks about the various media reactions to the attempted terrorist attack at the Texas American Freedom Defense initiative’s Muhammad Cartoon Drawing contest.  Some of the liberal reactions were less tolerant of Pamela Geller (the event organizer) than they were of the Islamists who marked her for death because she organized the event.

Glen also talks about the latest IRS headlines, the latest developments in the Hillary Clinton email scandal, and the latest developments related to Iran and Obama’s nuclear negotiations.

Glen talks with Jim Hanak (Founder and CEO of PA Leadership Charter School) about the latest assaults on cyber school education coming from Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s office.  Cyber School provides 38,000 students in Pennsylvania with an alternative to the failing brick and mortar public schools in their districts.  And Governor Wolf wants to kill this opportunity.  To learn more, visit savemycharterschool.com or click on the logo above. You can also learn more about a typical cyber school day by watching the video below the fold.

Glen also talks with Dr. Paul Kengor about his latest book, 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative, and Reagan’s view of religious tolerance.

Finally, Glen talks with Wayne Allyn Root (former libertarian Presidential candidate, classmate of Obama’s at Columbia, and author of the book, The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide) about how the IRS targeted him as an individual because of his outspoken criticism of President Obama.
