Throughout all of history, governments have always tended toward corruption. It's human nature. It's also why our founding fathers created the government they did. Joining us today is author Steven Rabb (thefoundersspeech.com) to discuss how everything the founders warned us against is happening. He looks at the constant end running of the Constitution to prop up an ideology, the intense pushback by those in the swamp against attempts at reform, and the move away from public education into private or home schools. Our country is slipping precariously close to the edge of chaos: returning to the founders' idea of the U.S. is the best way to keep that from happening.

In the midst of the globalists' Great Reset plans, it's important that you root yourself and your family in reality because, as we always say, it will win in the end. First up this week to discuss some of those nefarious Great Reset plans is author and academic freedom spokesman Michael Rectenwald (michaelrectenwald.com). He looks at sustainability measures, ESG scores, and stakeholder capitalism. We're even close to implementing China's social credit score here in America. Anchoring yourself to the truth and reality will help get you through the Reset storms that are coming.

If you don't anchor yourself to reality, all kinds of problems crop up that can quickly spiral out of control when reality becomes real. What should we be teaching our children so they avoid those problems? Joining us this week to discuss this is author and cryptography expert Paul Rosenberg (freemansperspective.com). He advocates for teaching your children how to think through a problem, rooting themselves in reality first. Once that's established, it becomes easy to maneuver through different ideas on the way to solving a problem. If reality is going to win, it's best to be anchor yourself there.

Finally this week, we ask a fundamental question about our country: if free speech is essential for a free society, why is there such a brutal war on it? Here to answer that question is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He shows the tactics of those on the Left who are waging war to fundamentally transform our society. They claim the Right peddles misinformation, but can't name any specifics. They won't debate you because they lack substance to their arguments. So instead they wage a war on free speech so that no one can challenge their ideals. They will lose, though, because reality always becomes real. Share

Free speech is essential for a free society. Why then is there such a brutal war on it? Back with us today to discuss is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. The Left is waging this war and it is destructive to freedom if you look at their activities and ideologies. But reality is not on their side. Leftists never address the specifics of the misinformation they say is being put forth by conservatives. And they will not debate you because there is no substance to their arguments. So like most battles in history, they may cause a lot of damage, and freedoms will be ravaged in the process, but eventually, reality will win out.

Political Correctness Kills Us

Getting to the truth of any issue has become close to impossible today, especially if you listen to the mainstream news or the fact checkers on social media. Political correctness is killing us – sometimes literally. First up on the program this new year is Dr. Harvey Risch (ysph.yale.edu), Professor of Epidemiology at Yale University's School of Public Health. Medical journal articles are now being censored if they don't conform to the official narrative about the virus and the vaccines. Dr. Risch looks at vaccine efficacy, when Covid could be over, and weighs in on the effectiveness of Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.

Supposed fact checkers on social media are censoring posts that don't conform to the official narrative on any issue. Facebook just admitted in court that those same fact checkers are only offering opinions. Back with us this week is Founder and Publisher of American Thinker Thomas Lifson (americanthinker.com). This admission by Facebook not only reopens the publisher vs platform debate in regards to Section 230, but it also renders fact checkers useless. He also discusses inflation and the ineptness of the current administration.

In our final example of how political correctness is killing us, we look at the whole debate surrounding the vaccines and covid and the use and misuse of statistics. Wrapping out the New Year show this week is Dr. Jane Orient (aapsonline.org), Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. Definitions of words or phrases – like 'vaccinated' – are important because statistics will mean nothing if different studies have different definitions for the same word. The politically correct elites will use whatever study bolsters their narrative and eschew ones that don't.

We look at the status of the three Vs: the virus, the vaccines, and the variants. Joining us today is Dr. Harvey Risch (ysph.yale.edu), Professor of Epidemiology at Yale University's School of Public Health. He looks at the censorship from fact checkers when it comes to medical journals publishing information that doesn't conform to the government's prescribed narrative. He also analyzes vaccine efficacy, how soon this whole covid mess will conclude, and even weighs in on both Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. It's a ‘use all the banned keywords' kind of podcast today!

Is the United States going through a fundamental transformation? If so, what does that look like and what are the underlying factors? Joining us today is Dr. Alex Joffe (besacenter.org), Senior Non-Resident at the BESA Center, who examines how we are following in the footsteps of Europe toward the rabbit hole of Marxism. Those attempting to transform this country are using the moral panic of racism to justify pushing their agenda. Free speech and religion are for the first time in our country's history being seriously challenged. It's not popular which is why dissent to their methods is being shut down.

In the constant battle for free speech between the left and the right in this country, very few people tackle the argument from the middle of the field. Joining us today is, as John calls him, the man in the middle of the row boat trying to stop it from toppling over. That man is Matt Welch (reason.com), Libertarian and Editor at Large at Reason Magazine. He looks at the state of free speech today and the difference between the cultural value and the legal value of free speech in society. He also covers the history of journalism and how media is now coming out against free speech in some areas. Will the war on our constitutional freedoms continue to get uglier?

The state of Florida is becoming a magnet for technology companies, specifically crypto-currency firms, because of the state's business laws. To discuss this and more, Andrea O'Sullivan (jamesmadison.org), Director of the Center for Technology and Innovation at the James Madison Institute is with us today. She discusses the advantages of having a decentralized system of business over a centralized one, namely the ability to communicate directly with users and bypass the potential censorship of Big Tech. Blockchain crypto-currency is moving to decentralization and the powers that be are definitely worried.

HR1 is a new bill in Congress that, if passed, will codify every suspect procedure involved in the 2020 election – vote by mail, no voter ID, no voter roll cleaning, etc. J. Christian Adams (www.publicinterestlegal.org), President of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, joins us briefly to discuss this new bill. Attempts are being made to make that which is illegal legal.

We then transition to Kurt Hyde (thenewamerican.com), contributor to The New American magazine, who offers possible solutions to HR1, moving back to the fairly secure and reasonable voting procedures of the past. Can we have election reform if HR1 passes?

Censorship is running rampant today, but the media, who should be upholding freedom of speech, are instead advocating for more censorship. John Tierney (city-journal.org), Contributor Editor to the City Journal, is with us to discuss the ramp up of censorship since the Capitol violence and the hypocrisy of the media who did nothing when leftists called for violence during the Trump administration. When freedom is ignored, totalitarianism isn't too far behind.

Finally this week, Palestinian leaders are blaming Israel for not providing them with Covid vaccines, even though they had already procured some elsewhere. Back with us is Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst with the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis. He points to a bigger picture than just a vaccine controversy – statehood for Palestine and isolation for Israel.

First up this week, we look at the link between China's Communist Party and the World Health Organization. Claudia Rosett (www.iwf.org), Foreign Policy Fellow for the International Women's Forum, joins us to examine the coverup by both parties at the onset of the Covid outbreak and at every step since.

Next up, we welcome Jeremy Dys (www.firstliberty.org), Special Counsel for the First Liberty Institute, who dives into the First Amendment, specifically the free exercise of religion clause, how it's often ignored, and how religion in general is treated more like a virus today than Covid.

Recently, a video featuring a group of doctors speaking about the benefits of hydroxychloroquine was arbitrarily deleted from online sites due to supposed dangerous content. Pat Wood (www.citizensforfreespeech.org), Founder of Citizens for Free Speech, is back with us, to discuss his organization's experience with censorship and cancel culture.

We wrap up this week with long-time guest Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA, who looks at the case of a Jewish rabbi who, despite immense fanfare at his hiring, was quietly let go after his support for Israel was discovered. These leftist bullying tactics are spreading from college campuses into the streets and into everyday lives.
