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.
