Episode 34: I'm Not a Biologist
Progressivism would have us believe that the word “woman” cannot be defined, that young children need to be exposed to deviant sexual ideology, and that when a black man slaps another black man, somehow that is white people’s fault.  Support the show (

Episode 33: Crazy Pills
Is omicron really overwhelming our hospitals? Does mass formation psychosis really not exist? Are voting rights really under attack? The never-ending march of fear-mongering propaganda continues apace and it is quite literally scaring us crazy. Support the show (

Episode 32: Lady Vengeance
The trial of Kyle Rittenhouse has shown us, once again, that the progressive left does not want anything to do with justice. They will disregard all evidence, throw away due process, and proclaim a presumption of guilt in order to punish those who oppose their ideology. It's about power and control. They don't want justice. They want vengeance. Support the show (

Episode 31 - Enough
We are in an abusive relationship with our own government. Everything they say and do is done by utilizing abusive tactics in order to exert power and control over us. But we are not royal subjects. We do not have kings or queens. We need to recognize that the line has been crossed and that it's time for Americans to say...enough. Support the show (

Episode 30 - Ordinary Men
All throughout history, great evil has been committed by people who believed themselves to be righteous and morally justified. It is a grievous error to believe that we are somehow different and that we are not capable of the same. Support the show (
33:32 09/17/2021
Episode 29 - Identity Crisis
Our country is dealing with a profound identity crisis. This has been exemplified during both the COVID madness and the disaster in Afghanistan. It is difficult to even recognize America anymore. We have seemingly forgotten who we are as we stray further and further from the ideals that founded this nation and the ideals that truly make this country exceptional. Support the show (
37:16 09/01/2021
Episode 28 - Trust the Mind Virus
There is a highly infectious mind virus spreading throughout our society that is more dangerous and destructive than COVID. It causes reality distortion, emotional imbalance, and irrational fear and it threatens to tear our country apart. We must inoculate ourselves against it and stop the spread. Support the show (
31:35 08/14/2021
Episode 27 - Up From Slavery
Freedom, self-control, manhood, work ethic, personal responsibility, education, culture, unity. These ideas exemplify the autobiography of Booker T. Washington and they remind us how much we have gained and how much we have to lose. We must not squander our inheritance. Support the show (
32:55 07/31/2021
Episode 26 - Living in the Past
Perpetual anger and resentment, clinging to past grievances, vengefulness, hostility, lack of perspective, lack of gratitude - living in the past is not healthy behavior for an individual and it is not healthy behavior for a society. It's time to let the past go, embrace the blessings of the present, and look to the future. Support the show (
33:42 07/03/2021
Episode 25 - Truth and Honesty
At some point, we have to draw a line in the sand. We have to embrace honesty and stand up for truth, even  when it's hard, especially when it's hard, even if we're only ones doing it. And even if it ultimately costs us something.  Otherwise, the consequences will be devastating. Support the show

Episode 24: Lies and Manipulation
The people in power don't want peace and unity. They want division and chaos. Between George Floyd, Daunte Wright, Adam Toledo, Ma'Khia Bryant, and a host of others whose deaths have been exploited and used to manipulate, it is clear that these people want to cause as much destruction as possible. Support the show (
34:51 04/24/2021
Episode 23: Emptying the Ocean
We are living through a time period that is the antithesis of The Enlightenment.  Every day, our society devolves a little bit more into degeneracy and chaos. The poison is pervasive and it continues to spread.  And for the people who see what's happening and are trying to stop it, it often feels like trying to empty the ocean with a ladle. Support the show (

Episode 22: Blue Anon
If you believe that racism is woven into the very fabric of society, that white supremacists are everywhere and that they are going to attack the Capitol any day now, if you believed in the Russia Hoax, Kavanaugh hoax, and Covington Catholic hoax,  if you find yourself cancelling cartoon characters, if you champion a cultural revolution and love to destroy people's lives for saying, reading, or thinking the wrong thing - you might be a Blue Anon. Support the show (
32:02 03/12/2021
Episode 21: My People
Math is racist, standardized testing is racist, Dr. Seuss, the Bachelor, even babies are racist. The toxic fixation on race is pernicious and it needs to be stopped. It is past time our society abandons this obsession with racial identity and begins recognizing and embracing our common humanity. Support the show (
34:44 03/05/2021
Episode 20: Welcome to Wonderland
We are being dragged down the rabbit hole of leftism, being bombarded with lie after lie, absurdity after absurdity, and it almost seems to be the point. The point isn't to uncover the truth. The point is to force capitulation. To force complete submission, so much so that you are even willing to obediently accept and affirm a reality that you know doesn't exist. Welcome to Wonderland. Support the show

Episode 19: Losing Our Minds
Celebrating the deaths of political opponents, firing people and trying to destroy them for their political beliefs, ignoring concentration camps and human rights abuses in China,  rejecting objectivity, attacking people for their race and teaching children that they are either victims or oppressors based on their skin color -- wokism is a mental illness. And as a society, we are rapidly losing our minds. Support the show (
33:00 02/19/2021
Episode 18: We Need a Divorce
The left is calling for unity while simultaneously calling for a 9/11-type commission and labeling Trump supporters "white supremacists" and "domestic terrorists." We have reached that point in our relationship where our differences are irreconcilable. We need a divorce. Support the show (
39:30 01/22/2021
Episode 17: Protect Our Children
From education, abortion, human trafficking, gender issues, inner-city violence, the pandemic response, there are a lot of different problems that affect children that need to be addressed. Our society needs to prioritize our children and we cannot allow our kids to become collateral damage in the pursuit of our own selfish goals. Support the show (

Episode 16: Economics
When it comes to economics, it is important to remember that good intentions cannot change the fact that all resources are scarce and that there are no real solutions, only trade-offs. The government is abysmal at understanding this. As always, the answer to how best approach these decisions and how to achieve the best outcomes is to prioritize and promote individual liberty. Support the show (
35:40 12/11/2020
Episode 15: School Choice
Education is one of the most important concepts that we need to address and a good education is vital for a healthy society. And the best way to achieve this is through free-market principles, i.e. competition and giving parents and students the freedom to choose. Support the show (

Episode 14: Liberty
It has become clear that too many in our country have forgotten just how important our liberty is and how vital it is to protect it. As the great Thomas Sowell once said, "Freedom has cost too much blood and agony to be relinquished at the cheap price of rhetoric" Support the show

Episode 13: Election Chaos
The 2020 election has descended into chaos. Claims of fraud are rampant and nothing makes sense. Many questions remain and it isn't clear when we will have them answered. Support the show (

Episode 9: The Ballad of Chop Fluey
President Trump contracts COVID-19 and the radical left have a complete meltdown, mainly because he had the nerve to not die. Also, the panic and hysteria over the virus continue in spite of the facts, memories of "Flatten the Curve" vanish completely, and feelings of safety are deemed far more important than liberty. Support the show (

Episode 7: Abortion
The recent Supreme Court vacancy has renewed the national debate around abortion. At the foundation of the debate is the question, "What is a human life?" It is past time to formally acknowledge that unborn children are, indeed, living human beings with intrinsic value and inherent human rights and that it is our duty to protect the rights of the most innocent among us who cannot speak for themselves. Support the show (

Episode 5: The Church of Woke
What do you call a body of believers who passionately and religiously adhere to dogmatic ideals of social justice, whose intolerance for perceived heresy causes them to send inquisitors to root out and punish heretics, and whose principles are defined by being far more concerned with the appearance of being a good person rather than actually being one? The Church of Woke. Support the show (
