First hour: Peymon Mottahedeh interviews Steward Rhodes, the founder and director of Oathkeepers:

"Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, veterans, peace officers, and firefighters who will fulfill the oath we swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God. Our oath is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and we will not obey unconstitutional (and thus illegal) and immoral orders, such as orders to disarm the American people or to place them under martial law and deprive them of their ancient right to jury trial. We Oath Keepers have drawn a line in the sand. We will not “just follow orders.” Our motto is “Not on our watch!”

Second hour: Kevin Barrett interviews Mike Palecek of, whose new book Johnny Moon takes on the JFK assassination and its era through the eyes of a third-grader in Catholic school. I've read JFK assassination fiction by Don Delillo and Norman Mailer, and can tell you that this new novel not only is Mike's best book yet, it's much better than Delillo's and Mailer's efforts to do justice to the most important event in US history.

Howard Hunt, during his confession to helping kill JFK as part of a CIA plot directed by Cord Meyer and Lyndon B. Johnson, admitted to his son St. John that 11/22/63 was a dark day for democracy. In fact, it was the last day of American democracy, the end of the Republic, and the beginning of the era of pure pathocracy we now are trying to shake off - but won't, unless we wake up to how bad it is, and launch the 2nd American Revolution. Mike's book gets everything right. Its rich mix of realism and fantasy as viewed by a precocious third grader, alternately hilarious and horrific, is unlike anything else you've ever read.
