A few weeks ago, former President Donald Trump filed a class action lawsuit against Google, Twitter, and Facebook for violating the free speech rights of millions of Americans. What's behind the lawsuit and what does it have to do with Section 230? Joining us today is May Davis (iwf.org), Visiting Fellow at the Independent Women's Forum. She discusses the publisher versus platform issue, how the lawsuit could succeed given precedent, and regardless of the outcome, the need to apply the rules evenly to everyone. The repercussions of Big Tech's censorship could reach farther than just who gets to speak on the internet – it could change the culture and founding principles of the country.
Slavery still exists in the world – all outside of the United States. So does forced sterilization and internment camps in China. Kelsey Bolar (www.iwf.org), Senior Policy Analyst at the Independent Women's Forum, joins us today to discuss these atrocious acts and point out that when the oppressors and slave masters are members of a predetermined minority class, the narrative gets complicated and therefore disappears from media and politics.
John finishes out today's show from the Dialectical Dojo, dishing out knowledge on two logical fallacies: the fallacy of equivocation and the fallacy of false cause or improper correlation. John plans to wear his fallacy kimono at least once a week to educate you on the many logical fallacies we see in today's discourse.
There are rules for thee, but not for me. Seems to be the woke battle cry today. In this week's boralogue, John looks at the outrage against people and companies for thoughts and policies that were completely reasonable five minutes ago. He breaks down several logical fallacies wrapped up in progressive narratives. When words are weaponized in pursuit of those narratives, truth becomes a casualty.
Joining John in the studio is his wife, Carol, a homeschool and tutoring pro, along with Rachael Grant, who has homeschooled her kids for the last nine years. All three discuss the realities of teaching your children at home, the difference between homeschooling and public schooling at home, and the importance of a values-based curriculum.
We then welcome Ginny Gentles (www.iwf.org), Visiting Fellow at the Independent Women's Forum, who discusses how educational funding in the time of virus lockdowns should follow the child, and one way to do that is through educational savings accounts.
Finally this week, Twila Brase (www.cchfreedom.org), President and Co-Founder of Citizens' Council for Health Freedom, joins us to examine the potential realities of contact tracing and the broad redefinition of the term ‘case' which has led to a skyrocketing – and possibly misleading – number of new coronavirus ‘cases.'

Starting out the week, we welcome Ginny Gentles (www.iwf.org), Visiting Fellow at the Independent Women's Forum, who discusses how educational funding in the time of virus lock-downs (as well as under normal circumstances) should follow the child. Education savings accounts are a great way to do that.
When dealing with the teacher's unions and the educrats, which group of people do you think they favor – the children who are there to learn or the adults who run everything? No hint needed except to say that it's all about power, money, and control.
