Professor Cites Ridiculous Source, Claims Founders Were Raging Alcoholics

How do we arm students with the knowledge to challenge liberal professors? On this episode of The Vault, Glenn is joined by Tim Barton of Wallbuilders, who recounts a college student reaching out to him after a professor claimed the Founders were raging alcoholics who got plastered two days before signing the Constitution. The professor's source: The Huffington Post. Watch Glenn and Tim dissect the HuffPo article, which chronicles the drinking habits of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, and teach students how to handle outrageous and false claims in the classroom.

Watch the video for a sneak peek and answers to these clarifying questions:

• Were the Founding Fathers raging alcoholics?

• Does the Huffington Post article count as an original source?

• Who should have to prove their point --- the person making the claim or the person questioning the claim?

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.
