Republicans' Ridiculous Railroad Reaction
Well, after a week of hammering 12 Republicans for their vote on the "Respect for Marriage Act," they turn right around and torpedo the goodwill they supposedly wanted to achieve in their vote on the threatened railroad strike. Stigall explains. A fascinating conversation on inflation and the FTX crash with John Tamny, author of The Money Confusion. Constitutional scholar Johnathan Turley says Elon Musk and Twitter is far more important than you think to the country. And the Washington Post warns it's bad to be alone. Plus new developments at the Harrumph Society! Check it out here!
Freedom Of Speech's Inflection Point
(Due to a production error, the original episode was removed today. Please enjoy this corrected version of the episode.)
Stigall wonders if Elon Musk is leading the marketplace kicking and screaming to relent on its persecution of conservatives? From CNN, to Disney, to Apple and Twitter - things seem to be shifting rapidly and Democrats are screaming loudest in disapproval. Julie Kelly returns to discuss the state of the January 6th detainees and the prosecution of some of the "Oath Keepers" in D.C. And Dr. Sebastian Gorka as a loyal former advisor to Donald Trump sets the record straight as he sees it on Kanye, DeSantis, and Trump's future as the possible nominee for Republicans in 2024.
DeSantis Vs. Everybody
Don't look now, but Disney is waving the white flag in the war with Florida's governor and now Ron DeSantis is going after Apple and China while defending Twitter at the same time. It's a remarkable display of leadership from a governor who can actually do little from his post to impact any of it, but that misses the point. Stigall asks you to consider who's messaging and how inside the GOP at this hour. Dr. Marty McCary from Fox News stops by to shred the news reports on the "tri-demic" Stigall called out as a fake term days ago. And Breitbart's Second Amendment expert AWR Hawkins loves the new data coming out on Americans buying and carrying firearms.
We're Closer To China Than You Think
When you listen to official Washington discuss the human rights abuses happening in China and their zero-COVID policy, you begin to understand there's a reason they don't seem all that concerned about what we're seeing. Stigall explores the tepid response with Gordon Chang - author of "The Coming Collapse of China." Steve Moore discusses the real estate market and the exploding personal debt Americans are taking on. And Stigall wants to alert you to a vote in the US Senate today you'll likely hear nobody else talking about until after its happened.
Kardashians, Tampons, and Fauci
Yeah, it's a Monday after a long holiday weekend for most so Stigall has a stack of current and left over news he's reheated and served up for a delicious meal. Fauci and FTA president Weingarten continue to flirt with locking our kids out of school. Both Kim and Kanye are making news for all the wrong reasons. Tampax gets themselves in trouble on Twitter, and much more! Grab a napkin and dive in.
New Details In The Colorado Shooting
Stigall couldn't wait until Monday to discuss the new details of the Colorado Springs shooter. You'll find his discussions related to this on Monday and Tuesday's podcast square up nicely. Plus, the Miami Herald is really ticked off you parents are having more of a say in school board meetings. A creepy story about Massachusetts tracking Android users phones without their knowledge - Stigall talks with the New Civil Liberties Alliance about it. Plus, a brand new interview exclusively on The Harrumph Society with Jennifer Sey, the former Levi's executive who passed up a million dollar severance for her silence. She wrote a book instead. Hear the full 40 minutes and a fantastic thrice-weekly newsletter at the harrumph Society on Substack today!
