    Dr. Whalen will be sharing a list of recommended books for a summer reading list, including works by Annie Dillard, Hillarie Belloc, and John henry Newman.

    And if you want to chime in and talk about your favorite books, please feel free to call in at 914-803-4350.

    Academically yours,

    Andre Controversa Presents: The Trans-Pacific Partnership

    in Politics Conservative

    we have an exciting show tonight; only an hour long but with an excellent

    Tonight we will be joined by Rick Manning, president of Americans for
    Limited Government.

    Our discussion will focus on the Trans-Pacific partnership, as well as
    the effort to   give Obama fast-track trade promotion authority.

    Both of these proposals are collectively known as Obama trade.
    We will be discussing the emerging Right-Left alliance opposing this
    multilateral monstrosity, and why those supporting limited government
    should support limiting presidential power, even in the area of so-called
    "free trade."

    Please tune in to the Andre Controversa show at
    www.blogtalkradio.com/andrecontroversa, starting at 9-00 p.m. CT.

    Looking forward to a great show.

    Andre Controversa Presents: Planned Parenthood and John Boehner: Both Bad

    in Politics Conservative

    with all the news surrounding the Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal, it's a wonder we haven't covered the issue so far.

    Truthfully, those in the know about this issue have been so busy and swamped with media themselves that I haven't been able to get them on the air.

    At least, until tonight.
    Stay tuned at 9-00 p.m. CT, as we devote the first hour of the Andre Controversa show to this gruesome but timely topic.

    Our guest is Jim Sedlak, founder of Stop Planned Parenthood and vice-president of the American Life League.
    Jim will give us a detailed overview of the three videos from the Center for Medical Progress, as well as the allegations they are making against PP.

    Our second hour will feature Logan Albright, spokesman for Freedom Works, who will tell us why so many conservatives and libertarians are disgusted with John Boehner.

    We will discuss the recent coup attempt by North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows, as well as Mark Levin's bold statement urging Boehner and McConnell to resign.

    That segment will cover the first 30 minutes of the second hour.

    For now, we don't have anything scheduled for the last 30 minutes, so Jim and I will probably give our oh-so-eloquent commentary on the political scene.

    If I get a guest for the last 30 minutes, I will send an update.

    Please tune in at www.blogtalkradio.com/andrecontroversa, starting at 9-00 p.m. Ct.
    you can also find us at www.libertarianrepublican.net.
    Feel free to call in during the show at 914-803-4350.
    We'll see you this evening.

    Our guest tonight at 10-00 Est is Neil McCluskey, director of the Center
    for Educational Freedom at the Cato Institute.
    Our topic will be Common Core, and why libertarians and others should
    oppose this indirect federal takeover of public education.

    Core activists to call in and add to the conversation.
    Again, I was notable to get any opponents to agree to a debate.

    See you then.

    Andre Controversa Presents: Same Sex Marriage: Did SCOTUS Overreach?

    in Politics Conservative


    This is Andre Traversa, host of the Andre Controversa show at www.blogtalkradio.com/andrecontroversa, also linked at www.libertarianrepublican.net.

    Tonight's topic will be the SCOTUS same sex marriage ruling, with four guests weighing in on the issue.

    As usual, conservatives were more willing to go on the air than liberals, but I did manage to get one moderate/liberal voice to join our panel discussion.

    His name is Christopher Hale, and he is with Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good.

    They have what they call a more "nuanced," approach to the ruling.

    Also joining us is Travis Webber, religious freedom specialist at the Family Research Council, who will share his concerns about the ruling's potential impact on religious liberty.

    The legal angle will come from Ken Connelly, legal counsel with the Alliance Defending Freedom.

    And last but not least, we will be jointed by the brilliant economics professor Jennifer Roback Morse, founder of the Ruth Institute, who will make her case for a libertarian defense of heterosexual marriage.

    The show begins at 9-00 p.m. CT, and we're set up to run for two hours; but we may end the show early; I just don't want to be cut off the air right after the first 60 minutes.

    I may add a few surprise guests at the last minute as well.

    Please feel free to call in at 914-803-4350, and tune in at 9-00 p.m. Ct for another exercise in Controversa controversy.

    Talk to you later,

    Andre Controversa Presents: Patents, Gun Control and the 2016 Presidential Race

    in Politics Conservative

    Heads up; we have a jam-packed show tonight, two hours of lively discussion, political commentary, and plenty of controversy.

    Our show begins tonight at 9-00 p.m. Ct, with Congressman Dana Rohrabacher.
    Congressman Rohrabacher will be discussing his opposition to patent reform legislation. Apparently meant to combat patent trolls, especially in the software industry, this legislation reaches farther and affects legitimate inventors as well. The congressman will be with us for 15 minutes.

    Then, at 9-15, we will be joined by Ken Blanchard, a former marine and former pastor currently looking for a church. An African-American, Ken is author of Black Man with a Gun, and host of a podcast with the same title.
    We will be discussing the Biblical justification for arming church members, as well as the historic roots of sympathy for gun control in the black community. This segment will carry for the show for the rest of the hour.

    Our second hour will consist of a panel of social conservatives. The topic for discussion will be the 2016 presidential race. All three of our panelists recently attended the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference, where the major GOP candidates gave speeches.

    Our panelists are: Teri Johannsson, Florida director for Concerned Women For America
    Peter  Jedick, author of How Democrats Bankrupted America: Who Did It and How to Fix It.

    And our third panelist is  Colorado State Rep Gordon Klingenschmitt, former Navy chaplain and author of THE DEMONS OF BARACK H. OBAMA.

    These topics are all ripe for discussion, so please feel free to call in at 914-803-4350.
    Tune in tonight at 9-00 Ct for two hours of lively intellectual stimulation.
    Yours truly,

    Andre Controversa

    Andre Controversa Presents: Iowa Politics and the 2016 Presidential Election

    in Politics Conservative


    Tonight’s show will feature Dr. Sam Clovis.

    Sam is an economics professor at Morningside College in Sioux City Iowa, as well as a former GOP Senate candidate and grassroots political activist.

    Given Iowa’s prominent role in presidential politics, we will be discussing the 2016 race, as it looks on the ground in that pivotal state.

    We will be raising key questions such as, who is currently the most viable candidate in the race, and, do conservatives and libertarians have a place at the table?

    Which candidate can build the most viable coalition that will appeal to multiple GOP factions, without kowtowing to the Establishment?

    We may also have another guest on at 10-00 p.m. CST discussing gay conversion therapy, but that remains to be seen.

    As for now, please tune in at 9-00 p.m. CST for a lively discussion with grassroots activist and political observer Sam Clovis.

    Our show airs at www.blogtalkradio.com/andrecontroversa, and our call-in number is 914-803-4350.

    Andre Controversa Presents: Wedding Cakes For Gays and Fetal Homicide Bill

    in Politics Conservative

    Hello everyone, this is Andre Traversa, otherwise known as Andre Controversa, spreading controversy wherever I go.

    We have a packed hot show tonight, only an hour long, but with two hot segments.

    Up first will be Melissa Klein.

    Melissa is one of the first original bakers who bravely refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple and is being fined by an administrative law court in the state of Oregon.

    No trial, no jury, no due process; just an un-American assault on religious liberty.

    As many of you know, GoFundMe took down her account. Her company is called Sweet Cakes by Melissa.

    But thankfully, she has found funding through an alternative site called Continue to Give, a service that helps people give to charities and Christian ministries.

    We will have one of the founders of that ministry on the air as well. That will take up the first 30 minutes.

    The second half of the show will be taken up by a hot debate. We will be joined by Kathy Alderman of Planned Parenthood Always Votes Colorado.

    The topic will be the Democratic defeat of a fetal homicide bill. Opposing her on this issue is Polly Lawrence, Republican state rep and assistant House minority leader.

    Tune in tonight at 9-00 Ct at www.blogtalkradio.com/andrecontroversa.

    Let's get some callers on this one. Please call in at 914-803-4350. I look forward to a hot show.
