Samuel Tisherman at the University of Maryland School of Medicine brings a man back from the dead as a breakthrough way of performing emergency surgery. But can this medical procedure finally make deep space travel possible?
Recorded live before a global audience on 8/8/19.
Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren on the far, far left, against the rest of the field on the merely far left: How can the Democratic Party ever pull together to defeat President Trump when they can’t even agree on their ideology? Can Betsy Warren’s attacks on multinational corporations endear her to the Trump base who oppose globalism?
While drunkblogging the Democratic presidential debates this week, Stephen Green suffered a haunting flash-forward: “What if one of these jokers wins?” Not content to replay this endlessly inside his own private Hell, Steve puts the question to Bill Whittle and Scott Ott…and you! How much of the Constitution will survive inside the Democrat presidential blast radius? Does America need to elect a hard socialist to innoculate itself against the disease forever?
The Trump administration ends President Obama’s moratorium on federal death penalty executions, despite concerns about racial disparities on death row. While the move changes the method of lethal injection to reduce pain — following the Texas model — the risk of executing an innocent person remains. What’s the role of capital punishment in an advanced, humane, society? Should small government Constitutional conservatives endorse the federal government’s ultimate power to wield the sword against its own citizens?
In Stephen Green’s latest episode of Right Angle Lightning Round, he ambushes Scott Ott and Bill Whittle with some of the weirder stories of the week, including…
— A high-speed crack up underground.
— How Trump chased New Yorkers to Miami.
— What a GOP group should have done after referring to Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘jihad squad’.
— Corey Booker’s raging hormones drive him to do this to President Trump.
— And the word you should avoid when recruiting new socialists.
The Verge reports a security hole in Facebook’s allegedly kid-friendly, parent-approved, Messenger Kids app that let’s your child join a group chat with people you don’t know, and have not approved, exposing him to untold stranger danger. This is the latest breach of trust between the social media giant — that also owns Instagram and Whatsapp — and the users whose personal information it monetizes for billions of dollars each year. Proper privacy and security measures harm Facebook’s bottom-line, so how long will people continue to trust them?
Away from the toxic sewer of social media, in a Members-only conservative enclave, liberty lovers have created a forum to discuss time-tested principles as they clash with the news of the day. The Members write their own blog, and carry on vigorous discussions around 48 shows each month that are produced by their own dollars.

President Trump’s approval rating is up, and most Americans think he’s doing a good job with the economy. But according to a new poll, most Americans also plan to vote against Trump. Will the man who changed politics forever in 2016 fall victim to more massive change and lose in 2020 despite the strong economy. If it’s not the economy, stupid…them what is it?
Democrats hoped that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before House committees would bring his 448-page report on President Trump to life on video, because most Americans didn’t read the book. Instead, Democrats wound up reading the report to Mueller, who — in most cases — gave short answers, and referred them back to his written report. As a movie, the Mueller testimony flopped. Meanwhile, Republicans planted seeds of doubt about the political motives behind the two-year investigation into Russia’s election interference, and possible obstruction of justice by Trump. Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-TX, among others pointed out that Mueller’s claim that the “president was not exculpated” or “exonerated” flipped the presumption of innocence which lies at the heart of the American justice system.
President Trump’s budget deal with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer unleashes spending, kills the only existing restraint on it, and uncaps the national debt. The political move takes the debate off the table during the presidential election season. Pelosi and Schumer crow that the deal allows them to “advance progress for the people.” Does it also signal that any claim to fiscal conservatism by Republicans is dead?
The Trump administration’s new regulations, separating abortion from women’s health services, has triggered at least two major abortion providers to reject federal funds rather than comply. Is Trump’s legal-procedural approach — rather than moralistic preaching — succeeded where previous conservative efforts have failed? Will individual Progressive Americans step up to fill the funding gap so the abortion clinics can keep on carving?
A new Washington Post poll shows that a majority of Mexicans want illegal immigrants deported, and almost none want them to stay. They also support use of their new national guard to stop the flow of immigrants through their country. Did President Trump’s immigration policies force Mexicans to face the consequences of open borders?
President Trump effectively ends asylum for migrants traveling through Mexico to get to the U.S.. These pass-though migrants must, instead, now seek asylum in the first safe country they enter. In effect, Trump builds a wall made of Mexico. Have we given up on the idea of the U.S. as refuge for the world’s beleaguered masses?
