Canada has enacted emergency measures, labeling the truckers as terrorists and their protest as illegal, simply because they disagree with the official government narrative. John opens the program this week asking how temporary will these emergency powers be and when will they be used in the future. He shows that the same people who for years praised the art of protesting and occupying are now insisting that the Freedom Convoy is a threat and must be stopped. It becomes nearly impossible to march in lockstep with a group of people that keeps changing directions and doesn't bother to tell you.

Meanwhile, in this country, the Senate is looking at Senate Bill 673, the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act. What is it and how will the media benefit? Back with us to discuss is Pat Wood (citizensforfreespeech.org), Executive Director of Citizens for Free Speech and Editor of Technocracy News. Failing mainstream media outlets will use this bill to poach profits from social media companies because their content is being posted online. Their business plans have failed so this is an effort to siphon off others to stay afloat. And it could end up affecting independent news.

Finally this week, we take a look at two cases of constitutional end running. First we welcome JD Tuccille (reason.com) to the program to discuss how San Jose, California is trying to get around the Second Amendment by requiring gun owners to have insurance, using private companies to do what government cannot. Then we are joined by Stephanie Taub (firstliberty.org), Senior Counsel at the First Liberty Institute, who gives an update on how Oregon is still violating Aaron and Melissa Klein's religious freedom.

Studio Round table today as John, Carol, and Steve sit down to discuss the state of things post-election and post-Capitol Hill violence. There is a paradigm shift happening. It's important to recognize what is going on and how to move forward. We cover what happened at the Capitol, comparisons to the Reichstag fire of 1933, and the push to impeach President Trump on his way out the door. We also look at the silencing of conservatives on social media and the fear that many are feeling about where our country is heading. Despite the fear and negativity, there is hope in how we move forward.
