Rules for thee but not for me. That's the mantra underlying America's new woke belief system. Joining us today is freelance writer and author Larry Eubank (larryeubank.com) to discuss his new article Wokeism: The New American Orthodoxy. He looks at how the laws and rules when applied to radical leftists are ignored, because for them, the woke orthodoxy trumps everything – including the rule of law. But conservatives are expected to live up to those same laws. For every double standard on the surface, there's an undeclared single standard underneath. And that's the orthodoxy.
Not since District of Columbia v. Heller has there been a more important Second Amendment case than one currently coming out of the state of New York. With us today is Jacob Sullum (reason.com), Senior Editor at Reason Magazine, to discuss the upcoming Supreme Court case and its implications.

He looks at the history of 2A and the precedents that could be looked at in this case. He and John also examines gun control measures and the battle between states and the federal government as far as jurisdiction is concerned.
The House recently voted in favor of the Equality Act, which has now transitioned to the Senate, but does it actually project equality? Joining us today is Dr. Anne Hendershott (franciscan.edu), Professor of Sociology at Franciscan University, who looks at the flaws of the poorly named Equality Act. She examines the impact on faith-based universities and institutions, medical doctors, and female athletes. Rights that have newly been found, that are not in the Constitution, are now superseding the rights and freedoms that are enshrined there. It’s quickly eroding the freedoms that make this a great country. We must contact our legislators and let them know our position on this bill.
