Lockdown Lies: CDC Harps Face Masks But Ignores Obesity
When it comes to rooting out the biggest health risks of the coronavirus and all its various variants, turns out, it's obesity that's the problem -- not the failure of citizens to wear face masks, not the reluctance of Americans to social distance, not the refusal of patriots to stay home, stay out of work, stay away from church. If you look at the real facts, the real data, the real science, it's obesity that is the serious coronavirus concern, the one driving COVID-19-tied hospitalizations and serious illnesses and deaths. So why are Democrats in safely, solidly Democrat-run states continuing to push ridiculous non-scientific and overly abusive policies like face mask mandates on school kids? Answer: Politics and power. Guest best-selling author Michael Betrus talks about the coronavirus data he's crunched over the last couple years, and in so doing, exposes the very many COVID lies of the left's continued lockdowns.
Joe Biden, Divider-In-Chief
President Joe Biden says he's a uniter, bent on bringing America back from what he characterized on the campaign trail as the darkness of the Donald Trump administration. But his rhetoric is divisive; his politics are divisive; his policies are divisive; and even his fellow Democrat Party members are horrified at his speeches. Americans aren't fooled into thinking Biden is uniting the country, rather than dividing. Poll after poll after poll shows his job approval is sinking. So how to survive another three years of this administration? Philip Howard, founder of a group called Common Good, thinks he has some solutions for Americans weary of the divisiveness and ready for common ground solutions.
SCOTUS Ignores God-Given Rights
The U.S. Supreme Court told Joe Biden to take a hike on vaccine mandates for private citizens working in the private sector, but said OK to the same being forced on hospital workers whose places of employment take federal tax dollars. What's wrong with this picture? Simply put: Neither case fully upholds the idea of rights coming from God -- the very premise upon which this nation was built, the very ideal that makes this country exceptional. How come private-sector employees are considered private citizens, worthy of God-given rights, but nurses working for certain hospitals are not? These are perilous times, if the standard for individual rights is based on how much federal funding enters the picture. Dave Kubal, president of Intercessors for America, talks about how citizens should react to these cases, and explains why prayer is the building block of all the nation's freedoms.
If You're Sick, Stay Home
Remember when America wasn't ruled by fear? If you're sick, stay home. If you're not feeling well, stay home. If you're not sick, however, go live your life. That's a much-forgotten common-sense idea these days, due in large part to the left's exploitation of the coronavirus for political reasons. So where did all this allowance for the political class to clamp individual rights come from, anyway? Emergency use authorizations, the justification for speedy approvals of vaccines, and the root of much of today's coronavirus crazy causes, hearkens back to George W. Bush days. But the abuse of EUAs must stop. America must return to freedom. Columnist and home-schooling mom Bethany Mandel weighs in and discusses the insanity that's taken over U.S. government.
Democrats Are Insane
Democrats aren't just trying to win political elections. They're trying to win political elections so they can utterly destroy all that makes America great. And they're doing so even as they deny doing so. Truly, what is in the minds of Democrats who use January 6 as cause to show all conservatives as violent thugs and who tie January 6 imagery to election reform so as to make it seem as those who oppose the federal takeover of ballot boxes are only conservative violent thugs? That's how Michelle Obama is approaching the issue. That's the messaging she's trying to promote while entering politics and calling for mass registration of voters who will then demand complete revamping of America's voting system. Dr. Carole Lieberman, a forensic psychiatrist and best-selling author, weighs in on the insanities within the Democrats' minds.
Democrats Pin Election Hopes on January 6
Democrats have nothing on which to campaign. They're losing favor with the public, they're losing favor with the all-important independents, they're losing favor even with members of their own party. Joe Biden's poll numbers are in the dumper, and falling even dumpier. And Afghanistan is still a massive problem for them because even non-political types in America understand that it's just not morally proper to abandon and betray citizens and allies. So what do Democrats do in order to keep their hopes for election wins alive? Point fingers about January 6. Point fingers about the coronavirus. Point fingers about climate change. And point fingers at Donald Trump and Donald Trump supporters. Kash Patel, former Trump administration official, speaks of his own testimony before the January 6 commission, and of Biden's failures, of which there are many.
At max volume on my iPhone, right now I sometimes cannot hear or understand what he said. I am using AirPods. This is a problem I have with no other podcast. Is it possible that this is a production issue that can be adjusted?
Makes no distinction between rioters and patriots
Anyone who commits the violence, trespassing, and property damage we saw at the Jan. 6 2021 Capitol riots is not a patriot. But that’s what the guest on the 1/11/22 show did and the host didn’t correct her. It’s moronic to call it an insurrection. It’s also moronic to call the rioters patriots. Not all at the capitol that day were rioters. Most were patriots. But many were violent trespassers into secure ares who damaged public property. Make distinctions. Saying “WELL BLM AN ANTIFA DID IT TOO!” is a false flag. I can’t support that. We’re better than that. Call out violence whoever commits it, not just the violence caused by your political enemies. #unfollow
Thank you for speaking the Truth. I just heard a podcast from another conservative who was saying the same thing. Christians are not speaking up, we need to be bold and stand up for our country. Thank you for leading the way!!!
