misinformation campaign

All federal officials, except the President, swear to 'support the Constitution,' while the President swears to 'preserve, protect, and defend' it. So why do a large majority of those who ascend to these offices promptly ignore, and in some cases defy, the Constitution? First up this week, we welcome constitutional attorney Mark W. Smith (thefourboxesdiner.com) to the show. After the Supreme Court ruled that New York state can't ban conceal carry permits, state officials are labeling nearly every location a 'sensitive place' in regards to guns. So you can have a permit, you just can't carry anywhere. This is constitutional end running at its worst.

When politicians defy the Constitution, it's traditionally been up to the media to call them out. Our next guest, Dexter Van Zile (meforum.org), Managing Editor at the Middle East Forum, shows how the media are selectively reporting based on ideology. They ignore obvious facts staring them in the face, and twist a story to meet the worldview they've built in their heads. And if you dare challenge them, they will go to great lengths (read: censorship) to silence you.

One such ideological narrative pushed by the media and certain government officials has been the supremacy of covid vaccines. Wrapping up the program this week is Dr. Jane Orient (aapsonline.org), Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. She examines the push to vaccinate teens and even toddlers, despite a statistically unlikely chance they will ever contract covid, let alone suffer from it. She also looks at the almost never discussed adverse reactions to the vaccines.

Why do we see such blatant misinformation in news reporting? The facts are readily available but news stories seem more about crafting a narrative than about straight-up journalism. Back with us today is Dexter Van Zile (meforum.org), Managing Editor at the Middle East Forum. He looks at how far journalists have gone from fact-based reporters to unashamed ideologues. Worldviews are built inside one's head and narratives, news stories, sound bites, etc. are manufactured around that. He discusses the lengths some will go (censorship) if you call them out on their disingenuous news.

After much speculation and days of nervous liberals weeping and gnashing their teeth, Twitter executives accepted Elon Musk's offer to purchase the online platform. Back with us today is retired entrepreneur Bob Adelmann (thenewamerican.com) to look at Elon Musk, the man, and the runup to his mega-purchase. He discusses the board's decisions once an initial offer was on the table and what happened from there, including the poison pill maneuver and the always hyperbolic reactions from the left. Will Musk stick to his assurances that Twitter will be a free speech platform? Only time will tell.

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.

How can we get to the truth about Covid and the vaccines when statistics are being thrown around – some supporting one narrative and others supporting the opposite? Joining us today is Dr. Jane Orient (aapsonline.org), Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. She points out that the definition of words or phrases, like "vaccinated," is important because statistics will mean nothing if the definition of the underlying issues aren't set in stone. She covers hospital Covid issues, drugs that are verboten but actually work, and the controversy surrounding deaths among the vaccinated.

The Hunter Biden laptop story, published just prior to the 2020 election, was immediately denounced by mainstream media, removed from social media, and labeled as false by so-called fact checkers.  Nearly a year later, the story turns out to be true.  Joining us today to talk about it is Adam Guillette (aim.org), President of Accuracy in Media.  He describes the typical media two-step: deny deny deny and then when the story is no longer politically relevant, fess up to the truth.  According to the powers that be, a story isn't true until they want it to be.  So if the media gets things wrong so often and is not trustworthy, why is Congress now ready to bail them out?  It's one for the 'believe-it-or-not' files!
