The Common Sense Show
Dave's interview with Steve Quayle...
Steve Quayle was Dave's featured guest on Sunday evening as Steve brought the audience up to speed on the true intent of Jade Helm, the overall demise of the Christian Church and what is really going on with CERN and the dire threats posed by this project as Satan's minions literally are trying to open up the gates of hell.
Many from the audience commented that this was one of the most important shows ever broadcasted by The Common Sense Show in its nearly 8 years of existence.
Not only did Steve point out the dangers that we as Americans face in our near future, he educated the audience on practical and spiritual strategies for surviving the present challenges.
The riveting two hours of this interview are available at the following links. Please share this interview with your friends.
James Bovard is the author of ten books, including Public Policy Hooligan (2012), Attention Deficit Democracy (2006), The Bush Betrayal (2004), and Lost Rights: The Destruction of American Liberty (1994). He has written for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Playboy, Washington Post, New Republic, Reader's Digest, and many other publications. His books have been translated into Spanish, Arabic, Japanese, and Korean. He is a contributing editor for American Conservative magazine and The Freeman and a regular contributor to the Future of Freedom magazine.
The Wall Street Journal called Bovard "the roving inspector general of the modern state," the New York Times tagged him "an anti-czar Czar," and Washington Post columnist George Will called him a "one-man truth squad." His 1994 book Lost Rights received the Free Press Association's Mencken Award as Book of the Year. His Terrorism and Tyranny won the Lysander Spooner Award for the Best Book on Liberty in 2003. He received the Thomas Szasz Award for Civil Liberties work, awarded by the Center for Independent Thought, and the Freedom Fund Award from the Firearms Civil Rights Defense Fund of the National Rifle Association.
His writings have been publicly denounced by the chief of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Secretary of Labor, the Secretary of Agriculture, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, the Postmaster General, and the chiefs of the U.S. International Trade Commission, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, U.S. Agency for International Development, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, as well as by the Sierra Club, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the Washington Post.
The Mises Institute's "The Austrian" Newsletter The Washington Intellectual Gravy Train by James Bovard Intellectuals have long been glorified as champions of truth and defenders of society's highest values. But in Washington, they serve as Leviathan's Praetorian Guard. Intellectuals are thriving in DC thanks in large part to the ruinous policy advice they proffer. The […]
USA TODAY, June 5, 2015 TSA has no excuse to continue the groping by James Bovard Thieving agents, racial profiling and excessive pat-downs haven't made us safer. Last August, Transportation Security Administration chief John Pistole attacked an article I wrote, stating that it was "Misleading, inaccurate and unfairly disparages the dedicated (TSA) workforce. … We […]
We learned this week that undercover Inspector General testers managed to smuggle fake weapons and bombs past TSA screeners in 95% of their attempts. The worst part of this scandal is that it will make it more difficult for Obama and his Washington media lackeys to restore faith in government. The Washington Post had a […]

Senators are brawling over the renewal of the Patriot Act. Few folks recognize how the feds have been brazenly lying about the Patriot Act ever since it was enacted. Here's an oped I did a dozen years ago pointing out a few of the Justice Department's frauds. Baltimore Sun, August 18, 2003 America fights for […]
One of America's most pious gun grabbers, former Maryland gov. Martin O'Malley, will announce his presidential campaign tomorrow at 10 a.m. in Baltimore. As Baltimore mayor, O'Malley spearheaded one of the most repressive police campaigns anywhere. There will be a lively protest at O'Malley's launch by folks who have not forgotten the endless pointless jailings […]
Washington Times, May 28, 2015 FDA cigar ban proposal a government regulation too far By James Bovard The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is finalizing regulations that could ban the sale of most of the cigars currently available in the United States. The FDA last year uncorked a 241-page, 70,000 word barrage of proposed restrictions […]
Some folks wonder sometimes about the purpose of journalism. Well, sometimes barking is its own reward. The real problem is not the journalists that bark but those that grovel at the feet of govt. officials awaiting a pat on the head or a "scoop" that serves only Leviathan. h/t to Patrick McDonnell for another great […]
HERE ARE SOME OF JAMES'S BOOKS:
By Jim on November 6, 2012
I voted for Gary Johnson for prez. He did a fine job in the RT debate last night on the issue of Iran and the folly of making another 100 million enemies of America.
I wasn't sure whether I'd bother to vote – but I had to go out and get beer anyhow – and there was no line at the polling place, so….
As I was leaving, one of the poll workers thanked me for voting. I burst out laughing. I did not explain to her that I favored destroying almost all the jobs of the govt. workers & govt. contractors within a 30 mile radius.
Thanks for having me on your show today. That was a hoot! I appreciate how you draw out my thinking (or lack thereof, sometimes).
Here's a piece you might enjoy that fits the theme of some of your @off-air comments - https://mises.org/library/washington-intellectual-gravy-train

Clifford May, the president of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, commented in 2005: "It is the job of think tanks to create political capital. It is the job of politicians to spend it." May's think tank extols politicians who advocate bombing Muslim nations. Journalist Ken Silverstein, in an excellent report last year on think tank corruption, noted, "The Lexington Institute, a Virginia-based think tank, has never met a weapons program it didn't like. That is not surprising since a good chunk of its funding — about $2.5 million in 2010 — comes from defense giants like Boeing, Lockheed and Northrop Grumman."
Some think tanks offer little more than an intellectual version of "rent-a-mobs" of political protestors....
The more power politicians capture, the more profitable lying about government becomes. Nobel Laureate Friedrich Hayek, in his famous 1944 essay in The Road to Serfdom, "Why the Worst Get on Top," showed why, once government acquires vast power, "the readiness to do bad things becomes a path to promotion." In the same way, Washington is biased in favor of intellectuals who defend torture, total government surveillance, and the president's assassination prerogative. The advocates and apologists for George W. Bush's invasion of Iraq continue to be esteemed inside the Beltway as foreign policy visionaries.
The closer that intellectuals get to politicians, the more weaselly they usually become.
The Washington definition of "independent thinker" is merely someone without a visible receipt for his opinions.
