He also shares what he feels is the liberal elite’s hypocrisy on the issue of gay rights and equality. He has personally encountered many international partners who don’t understand why some Americans are vocal supporters of gay rights in the west, but remain completely silent on the issue for people around the world. Richard also discusses how LGBT groups like GLAAD, which once demanded tolerance and diversity, have changed course and support the worst aspects of cancel culture. Richard also gives an insider’s look at how the UN really operates. He describes what he sees as the extreme waste due to the UN general assembly policy of distributing resources like jobs evenly whether or not countries have people with the necessary skills or not. People end up being hired who don’t have the necessary skill set to fill quotas, and money and resources are wasted. Richard also discusses how Donald Trump has been successful at being a disrupter and breaking up groupthink. Richard details what he calls the Trump doctrine to foreign policy and whether or not it’s effective. He gives numerous examples of international policies that Barack Obama could not get accomplished that Trump and his negotiation skills have successfully gotten done. Richard also describes how an America first policy benefits us, but other nations as well. All this and more.

Michael Malice is an author and host of the “Your Welcome with Michael Malice” podcast. His most recent book is “The New Right”. Michael talks about how the corporate mainstream media uses its power to rig elections against outsiders like Tulsi Gabbard, Bernie Sanders and Andrew Yang. He makes the point that it is not the Democrats that run the media, but that the DNC is run by the media. Malice believes it is becoming clearer to many on the left that it is not Democrat vs. Republican, but establishment vs. outsider. Malice gives examples from the past of how the media has controlled the narrative putting it’s agenda first. Michael also shares his thoughts and reacts to a clip of a Don Lemon hosted CNN panel mocking Trump supporters. The viral clip features ex-GOP strategist Rick Wilson, and CNN contributor Wajahat Ali. In the clip Rick Wilson mocks the 'credulous boomer rube demo' that supports the president. Michael reveals the surprising dark origins of the southern rube stereotype. He also discusses the way the media portrayed Joe Rogan in a negative light when he was seen as endorsing Bernie Sanders and how the media use framing to get the viewer to think of certain personalities in a nefarious way. Media will intentionally use certain language to train their audience what to think. He feels that this is the key difference between having a bias and having an agenda. He points out that by them doing this they have alienated fans of people like Tulsi Gabbard, Andrew Yang, Joe Rogan, Kobe Bryant, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders and Don Imus. He also talks about how there is an asymmetry between truth and lying and that the media is destroying it’s trust far faster than it can be regained. Michael also gives his thoughts on if there is new support for Donald Trump where there wasn’t in the past and the reason behind his donation to Joe Biden’s campaign and how Biden brought the learn to code meme to life. All this and much more.

Smart people having civil conversations

Dave’s guests are bright, articulate and diverse in the way diversity should be practiced. He is capable of engaging guests with whom he may not fully agree without devolving into a cable news shouting match or snark fest
At the end of each episode I feel that I have learned a great deal while at the same time embarrassed that I could never be as smart as his guests.

Ridiculous
