Does “The Swamp” Include Boeing & Other Defense Contractors Endangering American Security?

3/22/2019
More
I was wrong last week. The 737 MAX should have been promptly grounded March 11th, 2019. Was history being written in the Ethiopian desert and off the coast of Indonesia? Sometimes history is written in just a few days. Are we witnessing the opening moves of America’s slide from #1 to #2 in commercial aviation? Why would the US Justice Dept launch an almost unprecedented criminal investigation of Boeing? The crashes of Lion flight 610 and Ethiopian flight 302 tragically killed 346 people....

20 Questions that will help you discover if you truly know how the world REALLY works. Letters from listeners. Two Boeing airliners tragically crash; the real reason the 737 Max was grounded. Are we willing and eager to end the more than 30,000 traffic fatalities a year in the United States? It can be done, you know. How would you vote? Don’t you care about people’s lives? The machinery of human society is infinitely more complex than a nuclear power plant. How, and why the left turned the...

Happiness Secrets: With Five Million Dollars, Would You Quit Working?

3/8/2019

How you answer the question that entitles this show will say a lot about whether you ever will have $5M. What produces more happiness, fun or work? Would you accept marital advice from a man who has never lived with a woman? But you might well accept car maintenance advice from a mechanic who has never owned a car. Would you take career advice from a man who has never held a job? But you might accept investment advice from an accountant who has much less money than you. Would any mom accept...

A guard at the notorious San Quentin penitentiary near San Francisco takes issue with my overly broad characterization last week. Another California corrections officer comments on my preference for fines, flogging and execution over incarceration. A Columbian family writes from Singapore to where they moved from Malaysia telling of how they overcame dark times and broke through to prosperity. That’s it for reader feedback for this show and now on to the true story of how Bernie and Arthur...

From Piano Performances To Prisons & Penitentiaries

2/22/2019

Who cares what men musicians look like. We discuss only their music. But when lady musicians are dressed a little provocatively, even a little sexily, we’ll comment on their music and also on their appearance. Is this wrong? Is this “sexism” whatever that means? There’s a growing group of attractive young female concert pianists who no longer perform in long gowns in muted colors. Few are more noticeable than Yuja Wang, and the music critic of the Los Angeles Times certainly did notice her....

The Worst 60 Seconds of the 2019 State of the Union Speech

Okay, for all those of you who’ve been eagerly awaiting the day I criticize President Donald Trump, today is your day! Listen to the phrase in the State of The Union Speech I revile and repudiate! “All Americans can be proud that we have more women in the workforce than ever before.” Well, I am not at all proud of that. And neither should you be. The president and his speechwriters were pandering to the high priests of Secular Fundamentalism. 98% of speech therapists are women but well under...

Join The Lapins On a Short Voyage From "It’s a Wonderful Life" to "Zombie Apocalypse"

Rabbi Daniel Lapin and his wife Susan take a lighthearted look at movies. Before World War 2, about 1/3% of movies released were what we would call “horror movies”. By 1968 over 2% of movies were horror movies, by 2000 it was 4%, and by 2015 it was 12%. By then Zombies were taking over the (entertainment) world. To date, Hollywood has produced 1,000 more zombie movies than cowboy movies. The walking dead? Really? When did the zombie craze really take off? It was 1962. Yes, there’s that date...

Since We All Know What to Do & What to Avoid—Why Do We Fail?

How to prepare your children to be able to say “No!” What are our three main appetites & how do they differ from one other? Why do so many smart, accomplished, powerful men who know better, act so badly towards women? The Torah prohibits Jews from eating pork, yet it is just as healthy as beef. So why are pigs, and other delicious dishes like crabs, lobsters, oysters, rabbits and snails prohibited to the people of Israel? What does this have to do with self-destructive sexual promiscuity?...

The Question that Divides a Nation: Do Entrepreneurs & Employees Make Money or Take Money?

1/25/2019
More
If you have a few dollars, well, you didn’t MAKE that money—you TOOK it. This according to the economics professors who teach your children and help them form their worldviews. Do you patronize companies that give some of their profit to charity? I explain why they would be acting more morally by reducing the price of the goods you purchase. After all, why is it the company’s job to take additional money from you, the customer, to give to someone who is arbitrarily defined as a ‘charity...

How Many Army Divisions Does the Pope in Rome Have?

Here’s a tough one to swallow: Morality as we know it applies to individuals, not to nations! The United Nations is nothing but an illusion. An illusion promoted by some pretty horrid people, to be sure; but an illusion nonetheless. The International Court in The Hague? Puhleez, it’s a joke. You can ignore it. Everyone else does. If you don’t like what Russia is doing (whatever that is supposed to be), then stop whining. Just make sure we have the necessary military power and the will to...

Guess who’s building the Argentina-Chile tunnel in order to lock up the world’s supply of Lithium (ion batteries). Yes, I’m talking about your mobile phone—the one you love so much! It was in 1956 that we saw one of the first movies to depict a Christian missionary negatively. Guess who owns Kenya’s new railway. And Kenya’s port of Mombasa (which like Somalia and Yemen, was also named in Hebrew). Guess who owns Zambia’s international airport and its electrical power grid. I hope you’re...

The Real Reason Why There Have Always Been So Many Jews in Comedy

1/4/2019
More
If you’ve read my book, Thou Shall Prosper-The Ten Commandments for Making Money, then you already know why Jews are disproportionately good with money. You’ve probably already adopted those timeless truths into your own financial life to good effect. But none of that explains why over 80% of American comedians of the past 80 years are Jewish. While we’re talking laughter, why are the wicked villains of television and movies characterized by their evil laugh? Was Samson really a comedian?...

One Of The Dumbest Things That Smart People Like Us Do All The Time

What is the semi-addictive behavior in which most of us engage to our own detriment? To what activity do most of us devote a shockingly high number of hours each week for which we get zero benefit? What is worse, this activity not only brings no benefit but it actually causes damage to us. If evil enemies wanted to harm the United States of America and render it weak both economically and militarily, they couldn’t have come up with a better plot than this one in which we willingly...

Feminism Makes Women and Men Unhappy But It Was Caused by Boys Who Never Matured Into Men

12/21/2018

Why the Donna Reed Show helped marriages while The Gilmore Girls hurt it. How boys started reneging on the social contract to become men back during the 1960s. Till then, boys sought to grow into men who would marry and who would cherish and protect their wives. Then, in what will turn out to be history’s most remarkable case of mass arrested development, little boys grew into big boys and big boys became 40 year-old adolescents. Men surrendered their natural authority in relationships. They...

Culture is not the same as civilization.There are thousands of cultures but only one civilization. Banks & bathrooms in Beijing, Bombay, and Bangkok grew to resemble such institutions in Boston, Birmingham, and Berlin not the other way around. Along with millions of others who voted with their feet, you and I also prefer civilization to any of the countless cultures we could have lived in. The problem is that civilization is a frighteningly fragile flower. But what happens when we clip that...

Numbers are your portal to progress. What happened to England when all Jews were expelled? What happened to England when they returned? Start devoting a few hours every week to improving your numerical literacy. Stop telling yourself you can’t do math. Nothing too complicated, just start on becoming more familiar with numbers than you are. In Hebrew all five verbs for counting each also mean aristocrat (count) or prominence, power, and prestige. Amazing Biblical coincidences. When you can...

Making Money Means Mastering Money: Here’s How

By far, the majority of people around you understand money as well as they understand magnetic resonance imaging. Which is to say, not much! As a not very successful fisherman in the cool, deep waters of British Columbia, I learned that you can’t possibly put salmon on your grill without understanding salmon. Similarly, you can’t put money in your bank without understanding money. And putting money in your bank is important. In 1925, President Calvin Coolidge said, “The chief business of the...

Happy Wife—Happy Life: True Testament Or Silly Slogan?

Men are hardwired to want to make their wives happy. We genuinely are happier when our wives are happy. And we are miserable when our wives cry. The problem is that most of us men are pretty clueless as to how to make wives happy. And what makes it even harder is that wives never want to tell husbands how to make them happy. While not disparaging gifts, remembering important dates, and breakfast in bed, in this show we explore the other really important things that make wives happy. For...

The Real Reason The Left Silences Conservative Speakers and Suppresses Pro-Family Voices

Conservatives frequently misunderstand the battleground. They try to refute beliefs with facts. Won’t work! Never has; never will. Crusaders will always defeat accountants. Believers will always defeat policy wonks. The committed will always defeat the complacent. Remember when the Moors invaded Spain? Well, one afternoon in the year 720, a brave Catholic priest bravely confronted the Moslem mob saying, “We should get together and hold a big symposium about the future of religious pluralism...

Increase Your Productivity by Never Sleeping In Your Day Clothing. Really?

I always thought that the fashion industry was just decadent, but apparently not. Clothing possesses a profoundly spiritual aspect. Most male birds like peacocks and cardinals are strikingly colorful while the female looks dull. However, last time I was at a charity banquet, the men were all bland and drab in black suits and white shirts while the women were resplendent in every color of the rainbow. Does the difference suggest something useful about male/female relationships? Is the Bible,...
