The Alyona Show – Norquist. Debt Deal, Neo-Cons etc.

Why is Grover Norquist so powerful?

­Reason’s Matt Welch is on the show, and we’ll talk about how we choose whose ideas are polite, and whose are crazy. As in why does Grover Norquist get so much attention and Ron Paul doesn’t? Then David House talks about the DOJ’s defense for confiscating his laptop at the border and about the government’s desperate attempts to fill their ranks with more hackers. Also, Jim Garvin is an American citizen who’s angry with Washington, so he posted his video online and it’s become a sensation. He’ll give us an “average” American’s take on what’s happening in this country.


Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks is on the show to talk about how progressives should feel about this new debt deal. Then, a 99er also weighs in on the deal. Next, Lt. Col. Anthony Schaffer discusses the possibility of massive defense cuts in the debt deal, and how neo-cons are already having a collective heart attack before anything concrete has happened. And don’t miss happy hour.
