While the events of January 6th were definitely not an insurrection, there were some behind the scenes planners. Where those planners' work is quite disturbing. Joining us today is author, activist, and podcast host Suzzanne Monk (trumptalk.us). She discusses how people arrested on January 6 are still being jailed without a trial, how Antifa and the FBI were more involved than regular citizens in the planning, and how the powers that be on the Left want conservative patriots to live in fear. The FBI is focused more on planning events like this or harassing parents who speak out at school board meetings than actually doing their job.
We have two guests for you today. First up is Joseph Puder (frontpagemag.com), columnist at FrontPage Magazine. He looks at how the world, as well as the jihadists in the Middle East, view the U.S. after the disastrous Afghanistan pullout. Our enemies around the world are more emboldened and it could result in attacks on U.S. soil.
We then move to our second guest, Becky Dummermuth (firstliberty.org), counsel at First Liberty Institute. She relates the story of two flight attendants who were fired for giving their opinions about their employer – opinions the employer asked for! The company says the opinions were discriminatory; the flight attendants say the company violated their First Amendment and religious freedom rights.
Colleges used to be bastions of free speech but in recent years have become a staunch enemy of our First Amendment. Travis Barham (adflegal.org), Senior Counsel at Alliance Defending Freedom, joins us today to discuss a current Supreme Court case he's working on. The case involves a student at a Georgia college who was made to jump through hoops just to speak freely about his faith on campus, only to find his rights were still violated after all the hoop-jumping. Speech zones, small corners of campus where one can still speak his or her mind, are on trial, but it's the future of the First Amendment's freedoms of speech and religion that are really at stake.
