Burton Folsom Interview! (12/12/14)

We are excited to welcome Burton Folsom to the program. A professor of history at Hillsdale College and a great advocate of Free Market economics. He received his B. A., from, Indiana University. His M.A. from the University of Nebraska, and his PhD from the University of Pittsburgh. He has written several books. One of the most popular ones is The Myth of the Robber Barons, which explores the positive effects of entrepreneurs and limited government. In the book he makes clear the often overlooked difference between "political" entrepreneurs and "market" entrepreneurs. He gives examples from history of various market motivated businessmen (like Rockefeller, Schwab, Vanderbilt, & J.J. Hill) and how their actions positively affected their contemporaries and the history of the United States. He also shows how politically motivated businessmen (like Fulton, Villard, Gould, and Stanford) had mostly negative effects. He makes a very effective case that big government and regulatory agencies get in the way of a healthy economy!

Interview with S.C. Gwynne! (11/28/14)

TRP welcomes acclaimed author S.C. Gwynne! S.C. (Sam) Gwynne has spent most of the last fourteen years writing for Texas Monthly, where he was Executive Editor from 2000-2008. In 2008 he won the National City and Regional Magazine Award for “Writer of the Year.” He also writes for Outside magazine. Prior to joining Texas Monthly, Sam worked for Time Magazine for 12 years as Correspondent, Bureau Chief, National Correspondent and Senior Editor. He wrote some 200 stories for Time, including 6 cover stories. He won a number of awards for his work at Time, including a National Headliners Award for his work on the Columbine High School shootings. He also won the Gerald Loeb Award, the country’s most prestigious award for business writing; the Jack Anderson Award, as the best investigative reporter; and the John Hancock Award, for Distinguished Financial Writing...Prior to his career in journalism, he was a French teacher and an international banker.

He is the author of the prize winning New York Times bestseller Empire of the Summer Moon, and he's here to talk about his new book, Rebel Yell: The Violence, Passion, and Redemption of Stonewall Jacksona thrilling account of how General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson became a great and very tragic American hero.

Stonewall Jackson has long been a figure of legend and romance. As much as any person in the Confederate pantheon, even Robert E. Lee, he embodies the romantic Southern notion of the virtuous cause lost. Jackson is also considered, without argument, one of our country’s greatest military figures. His brilliance at the art of war tied Abe Lincoln and the Union high command in knots and threatened the ultimate success of the Union armies. Until his tragic untimely death by friendly fire, Jackson’s strategic innovations shattered the conventional wisdom of how war was waged; he was so far ahead of his time that his techniques would be studied generations into the future!

The book is the result of Mr. Gwynne's lifelong interest in the "War between the States" and particularly in Jackson, whom he considers one of its most compelling characters. The book is really about transformation: how an unpopular and highly eccentric college physics professor and humanitarian, becomes, in the space of fourteen months, the most famous military figure in the western world. He has made a series of research trips to various archives and battlefields. The title comes from the fact that Jackson invented the "Rebel Yell!" Hear the Rebel Yell Here:

John Hawkins Interview! (8/29/14)

John Hawkins runs the very popular conservative website RightWingNews.com and he also writes for TownHall.com. He has run the site since 2001 and it currently gets upwards of 4 million visits a month! John is very passionate, well spoken, and quite opinionated as you might expect. He joins John & Frank to discuss many hot button topics and the audience gets quite a treat!
  • John points out how Obama's lack of action on ISIS makes him appear like, "a little kid outside playing war, and he really wants to be inside playing XBOX, but, his mom is making him do it!"
  • Frank very informatively brings up a speech by Pope Urban II, from 1000 years ago that talks about these Mohammedan savages committing beheading's. Nothing has changed in all that time!
  • Islamaphobia is simply an ersatz word!
  • Democrats of today and the Old Soviet Politburo are interchangeable!
  • Regular TRP Contributor, Jared Stevens of Missouri, very astutely points out that the majority of Americans fighting with ISIS are from Keith Ellison's district!
  • Why do all murderers and rapists favor the Democrat party??
  • Jackie Robinson, hero of the civil rights movement, was a staunch Republican!!
  • History teaches us, that all Left Wing dictators make war on their own people! Starting with the food supply, purging the military, destroying the medical system, and the economy.
  • Obama is "deforming" America!
  • Obama does not love "American tradition," every decision he makes is for attempted political benefit, never for what is best for the entire country!
  • John of SI and John Hawkins disagree over the strategy of how to handle the "black vote!"
  • Black's vote for the guy that says, "I will get you something for nothing." They seemingly do not believe in personal responsibility before they believe in race!
  • Democrats think they own everyone, except straight white males!
  • Congress is feeding our liberty to the new "Gang of Four!" Obama, Michelle, Holder, and Valerie Jarrett!

Eri Hotta Interview! (5/23/14)


Frank & John welcome author and historian, Eri Hotta, to the program to discuss her latest ground breaking book, Japan 1941: Countdown to Infamy.

Eri was born and raised in Tokyo. Educated in Japan, the United States, and the UK. She received a BA in history at Princeton and did her Master of Philosophy and Doctor of Philosophy in International Relations at Oxford, where she also taught from 2001-2005. She was a professor in Jerusalem as well. Her previous work includes, Pan-Asianism and Japan's War, 1931–1945.

Why would Japan, a country that was out-resourced 74 fold by the United States, carry on such an illogical war? Was the Japanese high command guilty of wishful thinking or just "great gamblers" that didn't properly ponder an exit strategy? Eri explains the petty rivalries and conflicts in the Japanese leadership that fueled it's desire to re-invent itself and how these flaws ultimately lead to their defeat.

Did victory over the Russian Empire in 1905 give Japan a false confidence to think they could now aggressively compete on the world stage? The anger that Japan felt because they were not treated as a "great power" by the West at the 1919 Versailles Conference....The United States actually pondered the handing over of the Philippines! Plus, Woodrow Wilson's refusal to include Japan's desired "racial & religious equality clause."

Was Japan a victim of Western bullies or the initiators of the war? Was the attack on Pearl Harbor a mere "holding action" by the Japanese? Was Emperor Hirohito actually a weak and cowardly man, afraid of a coup by the militarists?

The books, Japan's Imperial Conspiracy, by David Bergamini, and The Tiger of Malaya, by Aubrey-Saint-Kenworthy, are discussed.

The Japanese thought Bolshevism was a very dangerous philosophy and was the reason for their border battles in the North. The role played by infamous Russian spy, Richard Sorge.

Why did the United States, once a victim of colonialism, now have an interest in saving British and French colonial Interests in South East Asia? FDR's attempt to make Indochina the "Switzerland" of the region and why Japan rejected his plan. Plus, did FDR's actions push Japan to War? Did he know about the attack on Pearl Harbor ahead of time?

Also, the strains between China and Japan, then and now...

TRP! (4/25/14)


The "War of Federal Aggression" and their "school of consolidation" ruthlessly continues! This week, patriot, Cliven Bundy, is called a "domestic terrorist" by that piece of human garbage Harry Reid! The Federal monstrosity that is the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) continues their war on State Sovereignty & Individual Rights! Their nose has been bloodied and they are sure to come back to continue their torment of this honorable man! "End centralization and save Liberty!"

The "Republican Circular Firing Squad," led this time by also-ran, Bob Dole, are at it again! Dole says that fellow Republicans Ted Cruz and Rand Paul are "not qualified to be president!" Just more attacks by the "status quo" Republi-can'ts on the Tea Party! 

Despite the Foreign Occupier's "street thug rep", his "weakling foreign policy" continues to rear it's ugly head around the Wurrrrld! Our foreign enemies continue to have their way, while the American citizenry prove to be the true aim of their cross hairs! All this while millions of dollars in bonuses are paid to IRS criminals responsible for last year's tyranny!

Instead of the Bolshevik nut bag Ira Einhorn inspired "Earth Day," TRP celebrated "World Solutrean Day" on April 22nd!

PLUS:
...Amazing political and societal prophecy continues to pour forth on the "digital air waves" every Friday Night at 9:00 PM Eastern! "Thinking Man's Talk Radio" here on TRP!....While mainstream "political gossip radio" drones on with their forgettable "daily hot-topic muck" to fill air time, TRP refuses to conform and continues to lead the way! In-depth history is examined and disseminated, using reason to explore cutting edge ideas and rediscover our once great Republic!

Some facts about slavery minus the modern political correctness: The Old South is constantly depicted as the bastion of slavery for the world pre-1865, but less than 6% of the 10.7 million total African slaves that survived being taken off that continent made it to the North America!...(Between 1525 and 1866, in the entire history of the slave trade to the New World, according to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database, 12.5 million Africans were shipped to the New World. 10.7 million survived the dreaded Middle Passage, disembarking in North America, the Caribbean and South America. And how many of these 10.7 million Africans were shipped directly to North America? Only about 388,000. That's right: a tiny percentage!)....From the years 1500 to 1700 over 1 million Whites were enslaved by Arab Merchants!....The southern slaves were worth 3 billion dollars on the eve of the "The War of Northern Aggression" (a sum greater than the value of all manufacturing and railroads in the United States at the time.) Were the top 5% that owned the vast majority of southern slaves expected to give that up without compensated emancipation?? The average white free hold farmer, mechanic, and artisan of the time hated competing against "free slave labor" that undercut their efforts, but, they didn't want them all turned loose overnight either, to rule over them, like the Boervolk today!!....Django Unchaineduses the "N-Word" 114 times in a sick, vicious, and laughable modern caricature of the Old South!...Spain had slavery until 1886, Brazil until 1888, why were those countries not invaded and their slaves freed?!?!

....Was Captain James T. Kirk a member of the "Cult of the Constitution?"....The Constitution of 1787 has failed in it's aims, where is the promised "Liberty for the posterity"??....Patrick Henry and all the great "Anti-Federalists" (those forgotten heroes that supported our original and true Constitution, The Articles of Confederation!) predicted all the evils of consolidation that would result from the flawed and vague Constitution of 1787!....The "mysterious" reason we have a "two party system" is explained....

The 150 year cover up of our "Jeffersonian Free Enterprise" roots is exposed!...Thomas Jefferson is the originator of the "Grand Ole Party!!" Both he and Ronald Reagan are polar opposites of that counterfeit Republican, "Dishonest Abe Lincoln!"....Reagan never got proper credit for curbing inflation! That along with his tax cuts created the "ReaganBoom!"....Ronald Reagan's "devolution revolution," his blue print to reestablish "Federalism" and restore the Republic is brought to light with the recounting of his amazing executive order 12612 on October 26th, 1987! Unfortunately, 11 years later, all the good that was done was revoked by Clinton's executive orders 13083 and 13095!...Rediscover Jeffersonianism and save the Republic before it is too late!!

Only with banking reform and sound "hard" commodity based money can the "productive middle class" truly conduct Free Enterprise!...LBJ demonetized our coinage, it used to be 90% silver and provided an "easily accessible mini store house of value" for the productive class!....Hard money at the State level & 100% reserve banking!....Not the "Invisible hand," but the "loving hand" of Free Enterprise!!....Taking the "fangs out of majoritarianism" and the need for a separation of economics and state!...J.J Hill, the "Industrial Free Enterprise Hero," creates his "Great Northern" railroad without a dime of Federal money, unlike the corrupt, inefficient, and poorly built boondoggle that was the "Transcontinental" railroad and the Crédit Mobilier scandal!...Before the 14th amendment (1868), everyone was a citizen "only" of their State (they considered it their ancestral country), after the 14th Amendment everyone was made a dual citizen, not just of their State, but, of some rogue entity called "The United States," in which everyone was forced to pledge allegiance to a newly centralized National Government!...Is Atlas Shrugging?? Is it time for us to meet at Ayn Rand's Galt's Gulch??....

The Immortal Thomas Jefferson
Founder of the Republican Party!
Hero of the "Productive Class!"

Scott Wolter (World Solutrean Day Interview!) (4/22/14)

Scott Wolter  & "The Father of Solutrea" Dr. Dennis Stanford
(Picture courtesy of Scott's Blog)
Scott Wolter returns as promised for "World Solutrean Day!" (4/22/14) and is named our "2014 Solutrean Man of the year!!" Also, the "World Council of Solutrean Elders" bestows on Scott his sacred new Solutrean name, "He Who has been Blessed by the Ancestors!" ..."He of the First Blood" declares him a pioneer in "unearthing" the truth about the history of the new world!

Scott talks about recent amazing episodes of his hit show, America Unearthed on History Channel (H2), including one which dealt with the Kennewick Man. Scott has nothing but great things to say about former multiple-time TRP guest, Dr. James Chatters, who joined Scott to discuss the bones of the Kennewick man. As soon as Dr. Chatters saw Kennewick man's skull, he immediately knew it was not "Beringian" and was worthy of in-depth study! Scott believes the Federal Government's covering of the Kennewick site with 50 tons of rock and gravel raises some serious red flags. He states his belief that their cover story, "erosion control," is in his opinion not a credible explanation for the dump!

Also discussed are the ground breaking artifacts found by amateur fossil hunter, James Kennedy, at Vero Beach!, which Dr. Dennis Stanford believes are definitely of Solutrean origin! When "He of the First Blood" first gazed at James Kennedy's amazing artifact of the first ever seen rendering of a "Solutrean man," he admits to being sucked up into a whirling vortex of Solutrean memory!

Frank brings up several controversial books he has read, three he liked, Worlds in Collision, by Immanuel Velikovsky, God-Kings and the Titans, by James Bailey, and Robert Marx's In Quest of the Great White Gods. He then brings up a book he deplored, Charles C. Mann's, 1491, New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus.

Frank & Scott talk about the origins of the legend associated with Quetzalcoatl which tells of a "bearded white man who came from the east," and they both wondered why that account is just dismissed out of hand. They conclude that the legend could actually be based on caucasians visiting the old world in the distant past!

Plus, Scott's run in with the Smithsonian Institute that made him admit that "he didn't trust them any farther than he could throw them!" He also reacts to the apparent conspiracy to protect "old research & careers in academia" that has him questioning and confronting their methodology and orthodoxy! He points out "the problems of the human condition" that often times stymies scientific progress! The archaeologists at Cahokia say they didn't want Scott visiting their site because they "don't like" his program! Scott then mused, "like some how that's going to stop us!"

Also, his ongoing work on the "post Solutrean migration" of the Templars to the new world and his dealings with the Bad Creek Stone, Tucson Lead Crosses, Kennsington Runestone, and the Spirit Pond Runestones!

Scott proclaims Season 3 of America Unearthed to be some of his best work yet! Everybody stay tuned!

Professor Michael Ruggeri Interview! (4/18/14)

TRP welcomes Professor Emeritus Michael Ruggeri of the City Colleges of Chicago, where he taught Ancient American Studies for over 33 years! As a trailblazer 14 years ago, he started the most in-depth compilation of Ancient America Web Pages (now over 40 in all) on the Internet!

His website MichaelRuggeri.com includes his popular Pre-Clovis and Clovis Archaeological News. His two Pre-Clovis and Clovis pages also contain more information on this topic than any other resource anywhere. The Professor also moderates the Aztlan listserv; the largest and oldest Ancient Americas listserv on the web. He moderates an Andean list and a Mound Builders list as well.



Professor Ruggeri became interested in the Pre-Clovis topic when he realized that his field was way behind on research in this specific area. He quickly understood that this should have been one of the premier areas of study for American archaeology! Little was known about this fascinating topic when he first started his pages, but, it soon became hot with Kennewick Man and the final breaking of the Clovis barrier at Monte Verde. He was bewildered by the great amount of disinformation that was being disseminated on the topic. He knew that real information needed to be gathered and posted on the web, all in one place, to attract and inform a much wider audience. To all of our gratitude he has done just that!

You will be blown away by the amount of information on his website. A complete list of resources provided on the Professor's website can be found here.

Dr James M. Adovasio Interview! (4/11/14)

We are lucky enough to welcome one of the foremost archaeologists in the world to TRP! Dr. James M. Adovasio, currently the Provost, Dean of the Zurn School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, and Director of the Mercyhurst Archaeological Institute at Mercyhurst University

Just who were "the first" Americans?? Dr. Adovasio has very graciously come on to discuss his now famous work at Meadowcroft Rockshelter in Pennsylvania and his subsequent role in the “Clovis First/Pre-Clovis” debate. A prolific scholar, he has published nearly 400 books, monographs, articles, and papers. His credentials easily rank him with anyone on the planet in his field. He articulates some very confident statements to John & Frank, which they feel finally puts the supposed "debate" to an end! He also addresses his critics and gives us a wonderfully thought provoking interview! 

Dr. Adovasio is the recipient of a number of honors and awards. In 1971, the Smithsonian Institution awarded him a Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship, followed by a Certificate for Academic Achievement in 1972. Adovasio received an honorary D.Sc. from Washington and Jefferson College in 1983. He also won the Mercyhurst College Alumni Association Outstanding Achievement Award (1993), the Pennsylvania Historic Preservation Board Award for Archaeological Research at Meadowcroft Rockshelter (1996), and the J. Alden Mason Award for Career Contribution to Pennsylvania Prehistory (1996). In 1995, Dr. Adovasio became a Knight of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. His peers elected him as a fellow for the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and he has served as a lecturer for the Archaeological Institute of America since 2008.

He excavated the Meadowcroft Rockshelter site in Pennsylvania from 1973 to 1978 under the auspices of the University of Pittsburgh. The site contains 11 distinct stratigraphic units spanning at least 16,000, and potentially 19,000 radiocarbon years, of sporadic occupation, making it the oldest and longest occupational sequence in eastern North America and one of the oldest in the Western Hemisphere. To support the radiocarbon dates from the earliest occupational levels, Adovasio emphasizes that the 52 radiocarbon dates from Meadowcroft are, with several inconsequential low order reversals in late contexts, in absolute stratigraphic order. Additionally, all of the assayed samples derive from firepits and fire features with directly associated cultural material of indisputable anthropogenic origins. The entire suite of early dates derives from beneath a rockfall event of Clovis age. 

Currently, Dr. Adovasio is working in the Gulf of Mexico looking for submerged sites on the continental shelf, focusing on submerged coastlines, especially where rivers meet the ocean. Analysis of submerged sites could yield a wealth of information about prehistoric humans, as modern humans have yet to disturb them due to the rise in sea level that submerged the sites thousands of years ago. He also continues to analyze prehistoric plant fiber perishables from throughout the world.



J. M. Adovasio has spent the last thirty years at the center of one of our most fiery scientific debates: Who were the first humans in the Americas, and how and when did they get there? 

At its heart, "The First Americans" is the story of the revolution in thinking that Adovasio and his fellow archaeologists have brought about, and the firestorm it has ignited. As he writes, “The work of lifetimes has been put at risk, reputations have been damaged, an astounding amount of silliness and even profound stupidity has been taken as serious thought, and always lurking in the background of all the argumentation and gnashing of tenets has been the question of whether the field of archaeology can ever be pursued as a science.”

Dr. Dennis Jenkins Interview! (4/4/14)

World Solutrean Month kicks off with yet another trailblazer in the world of archaeology! TRP is proud to welcome Dr. Dennis L. Jenkins of the University of Oregon!

Dennis L. Jenkins is a research archaeologist, field school supervisor for the Oregon State Museum of Anthropology/Museum of Natural and Cultural History at the University of Oregon, and director of the
university's Northern Great Basin Field School. His archaeological experience spans some 35 years with more than 100 excavations! His remarkable finds have led to a new accepted date for earliest human settlement in the Americas.

Dr. Jenkins has found "actual human remains" that pre-date the Clovis Beringians by over one thousand years! Ancient human coprolites (dried feces) directly radiocarbon dated to 14,500 years ago have been recovered from Pleistocene aged deposits containing artifacts and extinct megafaunal remains in the Paisley 5 Mile Point Caves in south central Oregon. Their human origins verified by the extraction of ancient DNA, these are currently the oldest directly dated human remains in the Western Hemisphere. This very unique site has many kinds of perishable and nonperishable items preserved there. The evidence indicates the first site occupants were broad-range hunter-gathers well adapted to the Northern Great Basin’s high desert environment of the late Pleistocene.

His publications include “Oregon Archaeology” (Oregon State University Press, 2011), Early and Middle Holocene Archaeology of the Northern Great Basin (University of Oregon Anthropological Papers 62, 2004), and Archaeological Researches in the Northern Great Basin: Fort Rock Archaeology Since Cressman (University of Oregon Anthropological Papers 50, 1994) co-authored with C. M. Aikens and T. J. Connolly.

    Professor Richard Overy Interview! (3/14/14)


    Professor Richard Overy, acclaimed historian and author of, The Twilight Years: The Paradox of Britain Between the Wars joins John & Frank for an exclusive interview! Frank has mentioned his book multiple times on the show, now he and the professor have a chance to discuss it.

    Richard Overy is currently Professor of History at the University of Exeter (2004.) He was educated at Caius College. He taught at Cambridge from 1972 to 1979, at Queens' College from 1976-79. From 1980 to 2004 he taught at King's College, London, where he was made professor of Modern History in 1994. He is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society (1977), Fellow of the British Academy (2000) and Fellow of King's College (2003). In 2001 he was awarded the Samuel Elliot Morrison Prize of the Society for Military History for his contribution to the history of warfare. He received both the Wolfson History Prize and Hessell-Tiltman Prize for his book, The Dictators: Hitler's Germany; Stalin's Russia. In 2007 as The Times (UK) editor of, Complete History of the World, he chose the 50 key dates of world history. His work on World War II has been praised as "highly effective (in) the ruthless dispelling of myths" by noted historian (A. J. P. Taylor), "original and important" by the (New York Review of Books), and "at the cutting edge" by The Time (UK). Frank recommends many of his other great books including, 1939: Countdown to War and Why the Allies Won.

    The professor explains just what was "the paradox" of Britain between the Wars...He also explains the unique and somber mindset in Great Britain that WWI created. Also, was Stalin's Great Terror ignored by the British socialists because it clashed with their ideological beliefs?

    "Progressive" socialism versus "barbaric" fascism, is there really a difference?

    John A. Hobson's effect on the British Aristocracy...

    Frank makes an insightful and not often made comparison between the communist's attack on Finland in 1939 and the socialist's attack on Franco's Spain... Frank wonders if the two attacks were treated similarly in Britain?

    Also, the famous historical debate from the 1980's between Professor Overy and Marxist historian Timothy Mason is discussed...

    Plus, like only John of SI can, he shares with the Professor his thoughts on the historical failures of world-wide socialism!

    Jasper Becker Interview! (3/7/14)


    Jasper Becker joins our recent cavalcade of British Intellectuals! John & Frank warmly welcome him to the program for one of his lengthiest interviews to date! Frank has mentioned his now classic book, Hungry Ghosts: Mao's Secret Famine, numerous times on TRP!

    Jasper is one of the most renowned experts on China in the West. He runs the Legend Strategic Consultancy Ltd. He has a BA from Goldsmith's College in the University of London. He also studied at the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich and later obtained a post-graduate Diploma in Modern Chinese from the University of London. In addition to Chinese, he speaks French and German. He has been writing on Asia for 25 years and is the author of seven books. He spent 18 years reporting from Beijing and worked as a correspondent in Brussels, Geneva, and  Frankfurt. He wrote, Dragon Rising – An Inside Look at China Today and is currently writing a book, The Root of all Evils, about mankind's recent efforts to abolish money and why it can't be done!!

    The insane asylum that was Mao's China is examined at length! Listen to the history of Mao's forced collectivization during his supposed Great Leap Forward that led to upwards of 50 million dead Chinese in the greatest famine the world has ever seen! What sets this famine apart from those in Ireland and India is that it was entirely man-made! China was at peace. No blight destroyed the harvest. There were no unusual floods or droughts. The granaries were full and other countries were ready to ship grain. But, a blind devotion to Marxist Leninist ideology and methodology led to one of the most vile and inhumane mass atrocities one could ever imagine. During his terror campaign, Mao and his cult of acolytes, intentionally spit in the face of reason and slavishly promoted some of the greatest scientific absurdities known to man! Reality meant nothing to them, they simply "had faith" that they could literally change nature and re-engineer the environment with "human will." They avowed to push a "pure communist spirit and attitude" that would overcome the overrated successes of "western science." Mao also initiated a great fervor to eradicate "capitalist" thinking. He considered the people "blank sheets of paper" to be molded and coerced. He called it "year zero" and would make the Chinese throw away their individuality, religion, and families. Loyalty to the "party" became paramount over all else and Mao's cadres terrified the people into submission. Because he completely militarized the country he was able to strictly control and propagandize the flow of information. Thus, the true extent of the famine was slow to get to out. But even as word spread, well known Leftists around the world defiantly continued to sing Mao's praises as a "new kind of leader." Famous men like François Mitterrand, now late ex-French president, and committed fellow traveler, called him a great "humanist" and insisted to the very end that he was not a dictator and that there was no famine! These lunatics truly believed he would lead a peasant rebellion from the countryside and drive the engineers into the fields where they would be better off. In a sad bit of irony the Chi-Com's party slogan was "No one shall starve!" When it is all said and done, after the Great Chinese Famine, Mao's Cultural Revolution, and his purges that followed, the Chinese death toll rose to a staggering and most alarming 80 million!

    Professor Rana Mitter Interview! (2/21/14)

    In one of the most in-depth and informative historical interviews you will ever hear...Professor Rana Mitter, from, The University of Oxford, is a very welcome and distinguished guest on TRP!

    He is Director of the University China Centre at the University of Oxford, where he is Professor of the History and Politics of Modern China. He is the author of several books, including the award-winning A Bitter Revolution: China’s Struggle with the Modern World (Oxford, 2004). His new book China’s War with Japan, 1937-45: The Struggle for Survival, was published by Penguin in June 2013 (in North America, under the title Forgotten Ally in September 2013) and was described as “superb” by the New York Times and "must reading for anyone seeking a full perspective on the Pacific war" in the Washington Times. He was featured in the New York Times Sunday Book Review.

    Rana is a regular presenter on BBC Radio in the UK. His reviews and essays have appeared in newspapers including the Financial Times, Guardian, Telegraph, Caijing, and Outlook (India).  He speaks regularly on China in the UK and around the world.

    Frank & Professor Mitter discuss the incredible and not often talked about aspects of the struggle between Chinese Nationalism and Japanese Imperialism. Also, the personal clash between Mao Zedong and Chiang Kai-Shek and the reasons for the eventual Nationalist defeat at the hands of the Communists by 1949.

    The "Long March" has been glamorized in Communist mythology, but it is actually a "Long Retreat" by the Communists. Also, the somewhat paradoxical alliance of "extreme anti-Communist" Chiang Kai-Shek and Joseph Stalin. Stalin's motives behind the alliance in 1936 are explained.

    The reasons for the Japanese strategy of attacking the Soviet eastern border and the Japanese leadership's internal disputes are discussed along with the book, Japan, 1941: Countdown to Infamy, by Eri Hotta.

    The now classic book, The Rape Of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust Of World War II, written by Rana's late friend Iris Chang, is brought up when describing the Japanese war crimes against China. Crimes, Professor Mitter describes as one of the most sad and brutal episodes in history!

    Also, a topic that is heavily in the news at the moment, Rana predicts the future of Chinese/Japanese tensions! He also gives his very prescient analysis of China's economy today! Proto-Capitalistic or what John From Conn describes as (appropriately to the topic) a "Paper tiger?"

    Dr. Jerome Corsi Interview! (2/14/14)

    Dr. Jerome Corsi joins John and Frank to take a look at Obama's marxist/socialist roots! They also examine the old Trotskyite/KGB trick of inciting the calls of racism in the population.

    Dr. Corsi is a Senior Staff Reporter for World Net Daily where he works as an investigative reporter. In 2004, Dr. Corsi co-authored the #1 New York Times bestseller, Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry. The success of Unfit for Command permitted Dr. Corsi to devote full time to writing. In the past 5 years, he has published 5 New York Times bestselling non-fiction books. In August 2008, he published The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality, which was a #1 New York Times bestseller for a month and remained on the New York Times bestseller list for 10 weeks.

    For nearly 25 years, beginning in 1981, Dr. Corsi worked with banks throughout the United States and around the world to develop financial services marketing companies to assist banks in establishing broker/dealers and insurance subsidiaries to provide financial planning products and services to their retail customers.

    Scott Wolter Interview! (1/24/14)

    In another ground breaking TRP interview, Scott Wolter, host of America Unearthed on History Channel (H2) returns to the show with some exclusive news about Kennewick man and the Solutrean people! Scott has been on the show before and is well known for his belief in a fugitive Templar Order that visited North America (Novum Solutreum) at some point in pre-Columbian times.

    Frank is a big fan of his show. He likes how it gets people to consider new research and help break the established academic orthodoxy. Scott explains his breakthrough into television with his research into the Kensington Runestone. How he later went on to present the impressive documentary shows for the History Channel: Holy Grail in America and Who Really Discovered America? He tells the audience of over a dozen possible runestones with the specially noted "hooked X" feature.

    Frank tells Scott of his now famous Solutrean Vision Quests and his visits to numerous sites including L'Anse aux meadows in Newfoundland. Frank wonders why there were no Runestones found at that particular Viking site and Scott posits a likely explanation. He also makes Scott aware of how as an ordained Solutrean shaman and head of "The Solutrean Council of Elders," he has proudly taken the name, "He of The First Blood," as a rightful descendant of the original Solutrean, "Father of the Blood!" Frank also makes Scott consider use of his coined word "Beringian," the proper anthropological term for the "supposed native American people" that crossed over from the land mass of Beringia. John drives home the point that the Beringians came here like any other immigrants and deserve no special treatment nor the sympathy afforded them by modern political correctness. He then asks where is the outcry of sympathy for the Solutrean people who likely had their land stolen from them by the Beringians? We also find out, that unlike most of the mainstream, Scott has the intellectual courage to accept the tenets of the Solutrean Hypothesis.

    Plus, in something you will never hear in a regular mainstream interview, we witness some incredible depth, a battle of dueling libraries between Frank and Scott! As they discuss the "commonality of disease" hypothesis, as presented by two opposing researchers. The work of Victor Wolfgang Von Hagan is brought up by Frank, and the book, World Trade and Biological Exchanges Before 1492 is brought up by Scott.

    In an another off the cuff extemporaneous display of depth, Frank crushes the flawed logic behind Harry Hubbard's claims of Alexander Helios traveling to the new world!

    Also, Scott makes some major announcements about future shows of America Unearthed where he will be breaking news on the Kennewick man and the Solutreans in less than five weeks! Scott agrees to come back on in April for "World Solutrean month" to discuss his work!

    Please check out Scott's latest books, The Hooked X: Key to the Secret History of North America and Akhenaten to the Founding Fathers: The Mysteries of the Hooked X!

    He also has a great Blog! Everyone please check it out!
