Ep. 311 - Failures of the Pro-Life Movement
The Pro-Life Movement can't seem to stop playing defense even after the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Why do the varying groups struggle so much to capitalize on momentum and find ways to gain legislative wins?
Ep. 310 - Combating the Suppression of Disinformation
Leading up to the 2020 election the left-controlled intelligence community went whole-sale in to the business of censoring any unapproved opinions and painting everything as foreign disinformation. The right is now pushing back and cutting the legs out from under all of those agencies.
Here's my episode covering the Time Magazine article
And the article itself, for those who may have forgotten
Ep. 309 - The Rise of the MAGA Theocrats
MAGA Republicans are trying to create a new theocracy and we'll prove it by talking about climate change and Biden's falling popularity. Because that's how leftist puff pieces work. This is what passes for "journalism?"

What happens when you have more diversity in communities? Well, based on the research that was done several years ago, it turns out it is not actually our greatest strength.

Ep. 307 - The Downhill Slide for Ukraine
Corruption and military ineptitude have plagued Ukraine in the war effort. Now availability of able-bodied fighters and Western military and monetary support are drying up. What does the dying breath of Zelensky's war effort end up looking like? Probably something like this.

Revealed: The Republicans’ three-step plan for classic fascism - Alternet.org
Ep. 304 - Embracing Cruelty and Libertarianism
Why are Republicans so cruel? And why do libertarians believe so firmly in self responsibility? It's probably because Ayn Rand worshiped a crazy murderer from the 1920's. At least according to today's article.
Ep. 303 - The Verge of Fascism
"Fundamental issues brought us to the verge of fascism — and we’re ignoring them every day." At least according to an author on Raw Story. Let's see what constitutes fascism and what the solution is.

Ep. 301 - The White Flight Lie
We've all heard fear and racism blamed for people leaving cities, which ultimately resulted in those same cities devolving in to ruin. But what about the foundations of those cities? What really drove turn-of-the-century immigrants to abandon the communities they had worked to build?
Ep. 300 - Are We Rome w/ Don, LB, and Jonathan
How often do you think about Ancient Rome? For this episode I was joined by Don the Pleb, LB Muniz, and Jonthan Hemingway to answer that question and discuss how modern times are aligning with ancient history. Are We Rome.pdf.pdf
Ep. 299 - What I'd Tell Trump
Reading a piece from Zero Hedge that sounds a lot like the thoughts I had about Trump's 2020 campaign, and is doubly true going in to 2024. I don't agree with all of it, but there are some good ideas here.
Ep. 298 - Hate for the Men's Rights Movement w/ Magoo
For this episode my good friend Jim rejoined me to talk about the idea of a Men's Rights Movement and why everyone apparently hates it. Why Everyone Hates the Men’s Rights Movement: How To Shift Attitudes About Men's Justified Complaints - Partners in Fire

If you haven't heard about girl math and boy math, let me give you a quick education. And then we'll discuss how men and women differ in their views of how household obligations should be divvied up though that lens.
Ep. 297 - Teaching White Privilege to Broaden Minds
What screams high-quality educational curriculum? White privilege, microaggressions, and gender related pronouns, obviously! At least, that's the growing trend in schools in the UK and across Europe. And it's coming to a school near you very soon, if it's not already there.
Ep. 296 - A Moderna Protege: National Resilience
Moderna will continue to roll out new updates to their COVID shot, along with additional boosters, but what about the company supplying the mRNA itself? Lets take a look at Resilience, an Intelligence Community start-up that's hoping to "reinvent biomanufacturing."

Ep. 295 - Moderna Gets Its Miracle
After 10 years of not putting a single product to market, in fact barely getting past animal trials with anything it tried to develop, Moderna finally got its shot. Largely due to reduced or completely remove safety protocols. Which led to soaring stock prices and the savior of the company.
Ep. 294 - Moderna: A Company In Need of A Hail Mary
Since it first got started Moderna has been on shaky ground. Just how close were they to failure prior to the pandemic? And what about the technology behind their mRNA products?

Ep. 291 - Is It Ok That We're Getting Dumber
Certain tests are showing that over the past decade IQs have been dropping in America. Does that mean we're just learning in a different way, or are we actually become dumber? And might that be a good thing?
Ep. 290 - Boomers v. Millennials & Z-ers
It's a strange new world for the younger generations. And the Boomers just don't seem to get it. But is it really a problem of how much the world has changed, or is it more because of how the people have changed?
Ep. 289 - Going on the Offensive with Verbal Jiu-Jitsu

Ep. 288 - What If We're the Bad Guys Here?
In a somewhat stunning admission, this NYT Opinion writer actually gets to the heart of why Trump has such unfailing popularity. His most vocal opponents have become the enemy class to average Americans.
Ep. 287 - Social Media Contagion on Year Zero w/ Tommy Salmons
Ep. 286 - Living With Time Blindness w/ CD McRae
Now lazy folks have a way to explain why they can't seem to make it anywhere on time. It's not that they're habitually bad planners or any character flaw...it's because they have a disability. It’s not rude to be late – maybe you’ve just got ‘time blindness’ (telegraph.co.uk) Royce Lopez on X: "New white girl disease just dropped. Time blindness.

Ep. 283 - 16 Ways to Measure Your Masculinity
Today's article discusses different masculinity measuring sticks men have historically used that "many" consider to be outdated or wrong. This seems to be a polling of Gen-Z soy-boys, because most of these indicators are spot on and you need to stop being a pussy!

Ep. 281 - A Culture War of Fear
According to this article, "fear reigns in America's culture wars. We need a moral revolution to move past the hatred."
But is that really the case? And if it is, is the Left really in a position to be preaching morals and values?
Ep. 280 - Climate Induced Violence
The world is warming up (supposedly), and as the temperature gets cranked up so do global tensions. Specifically, right-wing violence against immigrants and people of color. Also, socioeconomic differences and COVID are to blame as well... because this was written by some leftist wackadoo who lacks a functioning brain...
Ep. 279 - Why Do Americans Want Guns?
It comes down to one word. You might be able to guess it...although even though that's not the word the author used, it's probably pretty accurate when you look at certain statistics.
Ep. 278 - The War Machine Churns Forward
Naturally our government has lied and manipulated its way into basically every military conflict since WWII, so why wouldn't Ukraine be any different. How did we even get to this point? Let's answer some of those questions.
Ep. 277 - Fake Social Media Accounts
"Rage baiting" can be a ton of fun, if you're in on the joke. Seems like a lot of people were not in on it with the Erica Marsh account, and now it's been suspended by Twitter.
Ep. 276 - The Incredible Rise of Modelo
There's a beer brand that seems to have benefited from Bud Light's fall from grace, and that's Modelo. But if you look back, maybe Modelo was always setting itself up to be wildly successful even without Bud Light falling on its face.
Ep. 275 - Supreme Court Decisions
The Supreme Court mades several rulings at the end of their session to close out last week, notably on Affirmative Action in collegiate applications, 1st Amendment rights in refusing work, and Biden's Student Loan Forgiveness.
The first two could have been avoided entirely, but the Left has an unquenchable thirst for forcing progressivism on people who just want to be left alone...

Ep. 272 - Looking for Masculinity in the Dating Scene
A young woman decries the fact that she can't find any masculine men who aren't conservatives. I wonder what it is about liberalism that makes all of the men such huge wastes of oxygen and women's time.
Ep. 271 - The Clash of Muslims and LGBTQ
Muslim immigrants and LGBTQ+ individuals should be natural allies, right? I mean, they're both equally hated by the "Far-Right" so obviously they should be aligned in their opposition to those bigots! Yeah, except that's not really the way that works, now is it...

To honor the passing of Ted Kaczynski I would like to take time to read from the opening of The Unabomber Manifesto. It's amazing how accurately he describes leftism and the problems of modern society.
