University of Wisconsin Professor Harvey J Kaye author of  Fight for the Four Freedoms: What Made FDR and the Greatest Generation Truly Great, explains how FDR’s Four Freedoms speech came about and how he connected the advances of the New Deal with America’s intervention in World War II. What are the Four Freedoms. Was the New Deal inclusive? How the New Deal frightened southern Democrats. Freedom from Want and Freedom of Opportunity. The artistic rendering of the Four Freedoms. The Civil Rights movement and the campaign for the Double V. The progressive energy of the 1930s. And Ronald Reagan and the great pushback against a progressive America.

Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis who refuses to issue marriage licenses to Gay couples, keeps getting divorces and having affairs. Donald Trump has found something in the Iran Deal that no one else has. Carly Fiorina makes into the CNN Republican debate. Ben Carson says we might have a “war on whats inside women”. President Obama’s new secret black nationalist plot and your calls and IMs.
