    Getting Back To The Business Of Healing

    Getting Back To The Business Of Healing

    Is the COVID-19 pandemic over? The President recently declared on primetime television it was. So why is the rest of the Administration trying to walk back that statement? On Today’s episode, we will explore why all the fuss about Biden’s statement, what is really happening with the pandemic, and some of the issues we should be focusing on for true recovery.

    What we do know is that we need to get back to the business of healing.  Not only physically in our bodies, but as a society and as individuals.  We’ve seen the pandemic have an enormous impact on our lives.  And regardless of how we categorize this particular stage of the pandemic, we need to start addressing some of the secondary and tertiary impacts of the pandemic.

    Being Black and Conservative in America with Larry Elder

    What happened to our goal for a colorblind society? And judging people on the content of their character, not the color of their skin? Now, we are being told that the idea of colorblindness is a form of racism. Dr. Carson welcomes Larry Elder to the show.  He is a NYT best-selling author, Epoch Times TV Host, and his latest movie, Uncle Tom II, was just recently released. Together, they discuss the origins of Marxism in the roots of organizations like BLM. Why was the “war on poverty” so harmful to minorities in the United States? And what about common sense solutions for what needs to be done to change the trajectory of our nation?  How do we fight back?

    What To Make Of The Mar-A-Lago Raid with Matthew Whitaker

    Violent crime is surging throughout America, yet our preeminent law enforcement agency raided the home of a former President, and potential political opponent, apparently to regain classified documents.  Is this a banana republic?  What are we to make of all of this? Dr. Carson is joined by Matthew Whitaker, former acting Attorney General and co-chair of the Center for Law and Justice at the America First Policy Institute. Together, they talk about his book "Above the Law: The Inside Story of How the Justice Department Tried to Subvert President Trump," what's happening to our institutions, the rule of law, and the prescription for getting back to the moorings of the Constitution.
