Is Trump on the right side of history? Why do current events seem to be playing along so well with the Trump campaign? As commentators now debate Obama's oft-used "right side of history" meme, we explore its progressive origins in Hegel, Marx and Woodrow Wilson. If progressives rely on their own interpretations of history to justify their political activities, what are they left with when historical events turn against them? Were the woes of Jeb Bush related to being on the "wrong side" of history? Plus, we discuss the current tension between the FBI and Apple Inc. related to "privacy" and technology and the terrorists of San Bernardino. Is the FBI right to push Apple to weaken its product security? Is Apple right to refuse? Should the US Government question its own immigration policies before undermining the Fourth Amendment for all Americans? Also, we review the ongoing Middle Class Squeeze and suggest the donor classes are laying the groundwork for a socialist America unless we can reclaim American sovereignty. Enter Trump? With sacred music and listener calls.
