    Inflation Reduction Act will do the oppposite while taxing everyone more

    Inflation Reduction Act will do the oppposite while taxing everyone more

    Thank you for listening to a week of Best Of material while my family and I were enjoying a week at the beach. It was so relaxing and refreshing! But, I’m back and we have so much to cover. Today, I need to focus entirely on the Inflation Reduction Act that just passed the Senate.
    First, let’s remember that Democrats often give a bill a favorable name, while usually seeing the exact opposite outcome. When in the history of history has a tax and spend bill ever been good for inflation or for the economy? We are watching Democrats lie directly to our faces, promising you a bill that is going to do the very opposite of it’s name.
    Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) has decided to stop fighting for his constituents and for Americans. Whatever a politician’s version of the “golden parachute” has been promised and he has now gone back on decades of fiscal responsibility. The guy who in January of this year upset President Biden and all of the Leftists pundits for not supporting the tax and spend bill of Build Back Better, has decided to vote for it simply because of the new name. He knows it won’t work. We all know it won’t work. But, he is tired of fighting his party and he might as well cash out while he can.
    There are at least four different provisions in the bill which will raise taxes on everyone, either directly or indirectly. We know Corporations really don’t pay taxes. Whatever their costs to create their goods or services, they will embed in the price. Putting a 15% tax on them will only mean those goods and services will have to be increased by a commensurate amount.
    The notion that putting price caps on pharmaceuticals will help is ludicrous given it won’t even go into effect for four years. Assuming Big Pharma won’t use that time to figure out a workaround, they will simply not bring new drugs to market. It’s that simple.
    Super-sizing the IRS with $80 billion dollars to hire 87,000 new agents is not meant for going after the 1%. Let’s be clear, who is most likely to have the wealth necessary to hire the lawyers, accountants and bookeepers to keep them safe with the IRS and then fighting them in court? Do you think they are bringing on that many new agents to go after the wealthy? If you do, you are fooling yourself. They are going after small and medium business as well as the average American taxpayer.
    And while they are forcing the costs to go up with their tax and spend bill, they are quietly putting a regressive tax on oil and gasoline by way of taxing methane emissions. The American Gas Association warned Congress the tax will increase costs of natural gas to consumers by an average of 17% and rise from there as the regressive tax is meant to scale up over the next three years.
    Even socialist Bernie Sanders (I-VT) commented on the Senate floor that the bill would to nothing to help inflation nor prescription drugs. When a socialist is willing to tell the truth, but Democrats are not, what does that say about them?

    BEST OF - Friday - Emotions have a way of stopping the truth

    BEST OF - Friday - Emotions have a way of stopping the truth

    This episode originally aired on Friday, May 20, 2022. 
    In today's episode, I wanted to be a little more philosophical about how many of us process the news. I am always wondering why so many continue to blindly believe the mainstream media, no matter how many times they are wrong. What is it that convinces so many to say, "Sure, okay, they got that last one wrong, but I'm sure they've got this one right!"
    The only explanation I have been able to formulate hinges on the primitive parts of our brains where our emotions are. Our earliest survival techniques centered around feelings of fear, anger, love, etc. It made is run away from threats or confront them head-on. Emotions are strong and hard to overcome. Just see what happens when you tell an emotionally distraught person to "calm down" and you know what I'm talking about. Asking a person to apply logic and reason while in the midst of an emotional upheaval is quite difficult.
    To illustrate this, I open with how the Left is suddenly using Replacement Theory as something only seen in white people, specifically white conservatives and, by way of extension, white supremacists. It's to the point where some believe all Republicans are represented by the murderous psychopath who killed fellow Americans in Buffalo, NY. These same people in the media, though, have forgotten how the topic of demographic shifts have been a giddy talking point for them for years. I share a montage of sound bites over how excited they are to see the shift in demographics will lead to a Democrat takeover for generations to come.
    Emotionally, they are so angry at one side of the political aisle, they are incapable of seeing how the very theory they want to link to white supremacy, is the very topic they celebrated as a means of decades of future political power. It's sheer anger and fear that leads to so many news stories turning into disinformation. As an example, I pull several clips from Nicole Wallace of MSNBC, who should be in line for an award at how much disinformation she has spread in her career.
    Blue-checked journos have jumped onto Congressman Barry Loudermilk who met with a constituent family with young children in the House Office Building on January 5, 2021. Supposedly, this is utter and undeniable proof of an inside job for the January 6th riot and an example of how they "cased the joint." Tristan Snell has been pointed out before on the show for his tireless errors and Trump Derangement, which is why he is qualified to be a commentator on CNN and MSNBC. It doesn't matter that a family from the Congressman's district never entered the Capitol building. No place where the family went on the 5th was breached on the 6th. The family did not even enter the Capitol grounds on the 6th and no one in that family has been investigated or charged in connection to January 6th. Yet, this is the story du jour for Leftists who are so mentally unhinged, they cannot allow facts to get in the way of a good story.
    Today, Pfizer's CEO Albert Bourla announced at the WEF in Davos, they have developed an ingestible chip to put in a tablet so when a patient swallows the medicine, a wireless signal is sent out to inform authorities it has been consumed. He adds, imagine the compliance to know the medicine a patient should take has been taken. I guess the old saying is true, it's only a conspiracy until it isn't.
    And, the AJC is reporting how more people who are double-jabbed and boosted are coming down with Covid anyway at pretty much the same rates as those who hare totally unvaccinated. But, they still want you to believe the vaccine works. They cannot accept how it wanes rather quickly and provides no long-term protection.
    To cap off the show, how many still believe the group Black Lives Matter had honorable intentions with all the money they collected? Now, Patrisse Cullors, a self-identified Marxist, admits the $90 million in funds received by her organization were mismanaged. How many of you were s

    BEST OF - Thursday - Limiting information is always bad

    BEST OF - Thursday - Limiting information is always bad

    This episode originally aired on Thursday, February 3, 2022.
    In this episode, I spend some time discussing the nature of limiting information. It is so easy to fall into the altruistic trap of saying, nothing should be uttered unless it's true. There should be no sources of misinformation or disinformation. On the surface, it sounds like a wonderful concept, but in reality, it's a dangerous path.
    If we really buy into the notion of canceling anyone or anything who is spreading misinformation, why do we need so many news outlets? If there is only "one" version of any story, why not just have a single news outlet and leave it at that? Let's put the government in charge and let them establish their Truth Department. They will look at each news story first to be sure it's accurate and then we will pay pretty faces to read the scripts. After all, aren't we already mostly down that road of believing the goverment has all the answers and never does or gets anything wrong?
    It's an absurd way to think. It's what leads to cancel culture. Instead of learning to change the channel, we want to eliminate the channel. Instead of giving someone a chance to admit their mistake and grow, it's better to remove them from society altogether. It took Whoopi Goldberg being suspended for two weeks to finally open the eyes of MSNBC's Mika Brzezinsky that cancel culture is out of control! Well, all I can say to Mika is, it took you long enough to get here, but welcome aboard!
    Limiting information is always bad. When you limit information, it limits our world view and does not allow for any individual growth. Learning to weed through so much information is a useful skill and should be encouraged, not curtailed. Yes, there will always be sources of misinformation, but it's much better to err on the side of having access to more of the story than to censor parts which run contrary to our beliefs. In any society, when information and diversity of thought is controlled or limited, it leads to dictatorships and authoritarian regimes. We have to learn that less in not more. When it comes to information, less is less.

    BEST OF - Wednesday - Jonathan Turley on Biden Crime Family and Groomers are mad

    BEST OF - Wednesday - Jonathan Turley on Biden Crime Family and Groomers are mad

    This episode orginally aired on Wednesday, April 6, 2022.
    In today's episode, I discuss some of the issues related to the Biden Crime Family. Constitutional scholar and professor at George Washington University, Jonathan Turley discusses the damaging emails and how the White House and President Joe Biden are not doing themselves any favor with how they are trying to spin the narrative.
    Basically, what they are trying to get us to believe is Hunter Biden "may" have done a few things that "could" get him indicted, but it never involved the President at all. The influence peddling (or pay to play) scheme was never about dangling Joe Biden as the carrot at the end of the stick. Well, if it wasn't, who is the Big Guy? Who is Celtic? Why would some emails indicate Joe Biden's name needs to be kept out of the conversation? It seems odd to believe these countries would be giving Hunter Biden millions of dollars solely for his opinions or business acumen. Yet, that's what the legacy / mainstream media is trying to sell on behalf of the White House and the President.
    You can fool All of the people, some of the time; and some of the people, all of the time; but, you cannot fool all of the people all of the time. And, time is running out for the Biden Crime Family. When we look back at how the media colluded to be help Joe Biden and the democrats hide this story in late 2020, it makes you wonder why anyone should ever trust the media again? It also makes you wonder, what would the state of our country be today if the media had done it's job, rather than act as the propaganda arm of the Democrat party?
    In closing, I shift to several people enraged over the term groomer. Apparently, calling people what they are is offensive to them. They are calling it a smear campaign. Well, sorry if it bugs you that most sane people believe innocent children should not be sexually radicalized. If you are enraged by us, it's you who needs mental health counseling and should never be allowed around impressionable young minds ever again.
    To help illustrate why these groomers are so angry, I remind you about the film industry and the movie ratings we have. There is a reason some movies get a G rating, others PG, some PG-13, some R and a few NC-17. We all recognize some films are just not appropriate for a younger audience. Why? Because they are not yet equipped with the experiences or understanding that an older person has. The same goes with radically sexualized topics or discussions. Plus, in every instance of movies ratings, note that the parent or guardian must be involved. When groomers try to drive wedges between parents and children, that should be automatic grounds for dismissal and a permanent record, keeping you away from ever being able to harm a child again.

    BEST OF - Tuesday - They want to fundamentally change our country

    BEST OF - Tuesday - They want to fundamentally change our country

    This episode originally aired on Wednesday, March 16, 2022.
    In this episode, we once again have to address the lies from Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary about the 9,000 drilling leases available for drilling. This administration is selling that narrative even after it has been taken apart over and over again. I even have some sound bites of the very blue-collar Americans Democrats’ always pretend to represent who are still unemployed after Joe Biden canceled the Keystone XL pipeline project. Maybe this administration needs to listen to a few Americans who do not revolve around K Street.
     
    To further prove this people behind President Biden have no plans of helping with the pain at the pump, I play a montage of sound bites from when he was running for office. It is abundantly clear, killing our industry by stopping fossil fuels was always the plan. Each American family is spending around $300/month more for the exact same lifestyles they were living 14+ months ago, before Biden was sworn into office. The attack on middle-class Americans is without question and it does not matter which side of the aisle you reside. They want to create a caste system in their New World View where the select few elites get to do whatever they want, while the rest of us become all equally miserable and subservient.
     
    If you need a microcosm for how flawed their thinking, let’s just look at another headline. “BLM activist named ‘Bostonian of the year’ whose non-profit raised $1M is charged with squandering much of it on rent arrears, $1,200 hotel stays and meals at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. And Shake Shack after being arrested at her $450,000 home.” While they ginned up your emotional anger and convinced you they were going to “solve the problem” of inequity for all, what they really meant was solving their own inequity at the expense of those they duped. They found willing participants who allowed themselves to be convinced they were “doing something,” only to find they they were all played for suckers.
     
    Another example of how they want to sell a perfect narrative, while the exact opposite is happening behind-the-scenes? Remember how we were told the 2020 elections were the safest and most secure in history? That to believe there was any kind of fraud or misconduct was nothing but conspiracy theory? They sold you on the notion that it was a perfect election. Then explain this headline, “Democrat official in Michigan charged with ballot tampering, misconduct in 2020 election.” Democrats lied to your face, then compounded the lie saying any state the moved to improve their election laws to make it easier to vote, but harder to cheat, were the ones trying to disenfranchise you. Instead, it was the exact opposite happening.
     
    We have to remember, without a strong America, it doesn’t matter which side of the aisle you are on, there won’t be anything you can do to further your cause. If we have no energy left to supply goods and services to all Americans, the rest of the pet-causes mean nothing. America first is not a Left or Right issue, it is an American issue and we all should see it that way. If we cannot protect ourselves, let along support ourselves, any other agendas we’d like to push became as thin of substance as the very air around us.
    Finally, we have to dive into another edition of, Deep Thoughts with Kamala Harris. Our Vice President, lost in another series of words, seems to also be lost on whether or not Ukraine is part of the NATO Alliance. Needless to say, they are not, but she doesn’t seem to be aware of that fact. She should not be representing the United States’ foreign policy anywhere, given she seems completely devoid of any knowledge of it in the first place.

    BEST OF - Monday - Rights should not be subjective

    BEST OF - Monday - Rights should not be subjective

    This episode originally aired on Monday, February 21, 2022
    In this episode, I open with an example of how one of the oldest mainstream media outlets, the New York Times, decides whether or not your protest is acceptable. It's not about breaking laws or infringing on rights. Nope. Instead, it's whether or not your protest aligns with their political views. This goes along with what I mentioned in a previous show about how liberals are not driven by core principles, but rather by outcomes. If one group is politically aligned with them, they will offer support. However, if the group has a different political persuasion, well, those groups are not allowed the same rights as the former.
    Part of this tactic of picking winners and losers also goes back to the use of the term "misinformation." The new Chief of Police in Ottawa held a press conference and literally said they would be "monitoring" social media for people putting out "misinformation" about the protest and they would be dealt with in time. By the same token, in the same presser, he said his department would be putting out the "real" information on their social media accounts. So, let me get this straight, people sharing footage of people protesters being trampled by horses is misinformation, because that's not what the narrative needs to be? We need to wait for the government approved and sanctioned script to be released to know what the truth is?
    Ironically, even some leftist outlets perform random acts of journalism. In 2014, the left-leaning new media site, The Huffington Post, put out a story worried that Justin Trudeau, when running for Prime Minister, might turn Canada into a dictatorship. Based on the events of the past few days, it seems they were right to worry.
    To add even more insult, the Deputy Prime Minister, Chrystia Freeland, is also tied to the World Economic Forum – a group behind the world push labeled, "The Great Reset." In a statement, she said that Covid provided them with, "...a window of political opportunity…" She's admitting the draconian moves and mandates were the opportunity to push the liberal, socialist agenda toward a more authoritarian state.
    With that in mind, my final subject has to do with the CDC admitting they have been collecting far more data related to Covid than has been released. They basically feel the common person isn't capable of fully understanding it all anyway. But, does that make any sense? If the data aligned with their narrative, wouldn't they be falling over themselves to release it?
    In the end, looking at where we are today, it's important for all of us freedom-loving, Constitutionalists to be more active and to be sure to vote in every election. As Barack Obama famously said, elections have consequences. We are seeing the results of when authoritarians are elected and how quickly they will decide which rights are okay and which are not. They would prefer to rule rather than have to govern. They can only implement what we are willing to allow and that's the lesson we are learning from Canada and elsewhere.
