In this week's episode, I discuss how states (including Texas and Montana) are becoming Second Amendment Sanctuaries; an attempt to change the Left's messaging on gun control away from a "public health threat" to a "national security threat"; and why a possible factor in the surge of mass shootings can be related back to the ACLU and their efforts to deinstitutionalize the state psychiatric facilities.

I spoke with Anastasia Boden, an attorney in the Pacific Legal Foundation's Economic Liberty Program, about the constitutional right to earn a living, and how the powers exercised by governors during Covid have harmed people and communities around the country. We also talked about certificate of need cases; a California law on a woman quota for boards; and what a conservative looks for in a good judge.

In this episode I share some news items about the first amendment which caught my eye this week. Can you be charged for flying an "[Expletive] Biden" flag in your own yard? Does Florida's new law combating rioting and memorial destruction violate the first amendment? Has the Supreme Court given religious liberty too much deference recently? What arguments are Democrats using to push for reform of the Supreme Court? ...

I'm joined by Erin Murphy and Amy Swearer to discuss our Second Amendment rights and the current attacks on our rights. Do so-called gun control regulations have a greater impact on a woman's right to self-defense? Erin Murphy is a partner in the Washington, D.C., office of Kirkland & Ellis LLP. Her practice focuses on Supreme Court, appellate, and constitutional litigation. She has argued before both the Supreme Court...

Have we lost free speech and freedom of religion in America? I speak with expert Mary Rice Hasson about current legal cases and bills before Congress. Some of these hold hope for our cherished first amendment rights, and some present dangers to the protection of our liberties.

I was on Fox News Media Buzz on Sunday to talk about two stories concerning the media and the President. First was fake news reporting that the President had had a stroke last fall, and the second is how the media went berserk when the President pointed out an obvious weakness in mailing voting, which the media has been pushing for months.

I want to share with you various items that came up this week. The first is an update of the ongoing persecution of General Flynn, the second is an excellent jobs creation report than beat expectations, the third is a totally insane article in The Atlantic that is trying to drive a wedge in Trump's MAGA base and is evidence the lamestream media is desperately trying to influence the election in favor of Biden, and the fourth ar...

The Republican National Convention exceeded all expectations and was a resounding success. It clearly showed how President Trump and the Republicans want to build things up in stark contrast to the Democrat's and their radical Marxist agenda wanting to tear things down. That was shown last night with powerful, moving speeches and testimonies ending with President Trump's acceptance speech at the White House, while outside t...

Today I spoke with Liz Harrington, the spokesperson for the Republican National Convention, about the incredible speeches given at the convention and how the powerful, hopeful story of real Americans who have benefited from the promise of America contrasts with the dark, tear-down-everything agenda of the Democrats. We talked about the inspiring speeches by Sen. Tim Scott, Hershel Walker, Vernon Jordan, Maximo Alvarez and Natalie H...

This has been such a weird and unexpected year! Given the 2020 presidential election where Americans have a real choice between a leftist Biden/Harris administration and a liberty-loving, tyranny-hating Trump administration, we were guaranteed to have an active year. Then the Chinese Communist Party Virus hit a stunned and unprepared world; the lockdowns became commonplace; and the Left began rioting and destroying. I have spen...

I've got a lot of things in the news to cover for this week: the predictable Biden choice for VP, Kamala Harris and gun control, Biden's nutty mask mandate and wearing masks on Zoom alone in your house (??!), the historic Israel-UAE agreement, update on Durham investigation, update on the Gen. Michael Flynn case, MSM Watch and how they slip in lies in news stories, male-only draft may to go to the Supreme Court, and a very ...

Summer is for the beach, and we all need some time to reflect on the crazy year we have experienced. Also, we need to store up energy for the fall election season. I took this week off from regular daily episodes so I could do some reflecting on the bigger themes of the year. I also have been praying for the people of Beirut this week as they suffered a catastrophic event. Today I want to give you my insights the big stories of ...

General Michael Flynn today is still a man with his liberty in jeopardy. There are few events more stressful in life than being a criminal defendant with the full force and resources of the government arrayed against you, especially the federal Department of Justice. But in this case, it is no longer the federal prosecutors holding Michael Flynn’s liberty at bay; it is a federal judge and a complicit federal appellate court. Yes...

“Democrats rule and Republicans drool.” That is the level of political discourse offered by Democrats today. President Obama linked up with Hollywood, Internet, and tech celebrities to raise vast amounts of money to support Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden. What are Republicans leaders doing to match this dollar haul by Obama? They are also working to elect Joe Biden! The last living former Republican President, George W...

Trump Derangement Syndrome was on full display at the House Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday, Tuesday, July 28, 2020. Attorney General Bill Barr was the picture of calm and control as the Democrats threw futile temper tantrums and embarrassed themselves. Because these childish House Democrats could not put President Donald Trump in the hot seat, they did the next best thing by yelling at Attorney General Barr and not letting ...

What happens when you are a “liberal mugged by reality”? You might just want to go buy a gun and demand government action against liberal rioting! That’s what happened to ESPN Radio Host Paul Gallant. Paul directed President Donald Trump to “Chill Dawg,” when President Trump tweeted about the malfeasance of Seattle’s mayor. Paul tweeted that he did not see any burning, pillaging, or deaths in his town. Then reality mugged Paul a...

Governors across the country are using the COVID-19 pandemic to grab power. Their power grabs reveal a lot about each governor. These governors act like they now have a carte blanche to disregard our Constitution. Take, for example, Nevada. The governor of Nevada, Steve Sisolak, issued a directive that allowed bars, casinos, and gyms to host crowds of up to 50% of their maximum building capacity, but at the same time, capped hou...

Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York personifies so many glaring issues with today’s Democrat party. Democrat politicians love power and control, even when their exercise of that power harms Americans. But the mainstream media will never hold these Democrat politicians accountable for their actions! Instead you will see glowing appraisals of these incompetent, controlling Democrats, comparing them favorably to the objects of the main...

Camp Hell: Anneewakee

The Anneewakee Treatment Center for Emotionally Disturbed Youth operated in Douglasville, Georgia for over 25 years. Purportedly, it was a place that parents could send their troubled kids for help. But in reality, it was a breeding ground for abuse. This is the story of Anneewakee, as never told before.
