Episode #156: 'W.M.D'  

Direct link: [link] 

It's been 20 years since the Bush administration needlessly took our nation to war in Iraq based on a pack of lies. It is important that we take the time to reflect on just how we were lied into that war, so that nothing like that ever happens again. Today as we reflect on the lies that got us into that war 20 years ago we find ourselves on the verge of an even greater war, again based on lies, proving that if we don't learn from our past we are doomed to fall for the same deceptions over and over again. The lies that the Bush administration told us about Iraq were many. They told use Iraq had chemical and biological weapons. They did not! They told us they had a nuclear program and that they were buying yellowcake uranium from Africa. They did not, and were not. They told us that Iraq had an alliance with Al-Qaeda. They did not. They led us to believe that Iraq was involved in the 9/11 attacks, and said if we didn't invade there could be a 'mushroom cloud' in the United States. None of it was true. How did the Bush administration lay out their case of lies against Iraq, and why did it fail to sway the United Nations Security Council?

FBI Director, Christopher Wray said there was three groups of people that participated in the events of January 6. He said the largest group, the group that needed to be focused on the least, were the tens of thousands of people who showed up in Washington that day to exercise their First Amendment right. He said they were rowdy, but peaceful and they didn't break any laws. The second group, a much smaller group, was people who went to Washington intending to participate in peaceful protest. However, they were caught up in emotions and fervor, and they committed low-level crimes like trespassing in the Capitol. The third group was the smallest group by far, but they are the most serious group according to Director Wray. These were those who vandalized the Capitol and participated in violence. This characterization of the demonstrators from Director Wray are in stark contrast to that of Democrats who want to put everyone in the same category, "insurrectionist".

The development of mass mediums in human history changed the societies in which they were developed. For example, the invention of the printing press in Germany in the 15th Century took Europe from darkness to light, and created the modern era. The development of the radio in the 19th Century helped connect the United States, bringing together those in urban areas with those in far away rural areas of the country. Weekly syndicated programs entertained Americans. They could get blow by blow coverage of the heavyweight fight, and hear the President address the nation as he prepares for war. The radio was a powerful medium, but it was just a prelude to the medium that would be the most powerful medium humanity had ever seen at the time of its invention in the 1920s. The television offered everything that the radio offered accept it added imagery. You didn't have to create the images in your mind with your imagination. It was a game changer! How could the story that Democrats told us about January 6 only be told on television, and why did they hire a television producer to help them tell it?

The Department of Energy's intelligence agency has determined that Covid-19 originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology. They are the second of the 17 intelligence agencies in the Intelligence Community (IC) that has made this determination, along with the FBI who first came to this conclusion. The Department of Energy (DOE) says that new information has led them to change their assessment. However, they did not disclose what this new information is. Regardless, we have come a long way from 2020 when it was considered looney, rightwing, conspiracy theory to even suggest that Covid-19 was created in a lab. Now we have two agencies in the IC that say that is exactly what happened. This new assessment by the DOE has made many ask what are the implications for American and China relations if more agencies reach this conclusion and it becomes a certainty. Will it exacerbate an already tense relationship between the two nations and possibly provoke a military confrontation? How will it also implement Americans who funded this research in China?

Episode #152: '90 Seconds to Midnight'  

Direct link: [link] 

As we celebrate the first anniversary of the war in Ukraine it's important to remember how it started, and it didn't start a year ago when Russia invaded Ukraine. The conflict in Ukraine goes back decades, before the coup in 2014 and even before the Orange Revolution in 2004. There are many components to the war, and the roots of the conflict are deep. The tensions leading to the war have been festering in Ukraine since WWII and they have finally come to hot war, but even the hot war didn't start last year. Ukraine has been in hot civil war since Euromaidan and the 2014 coup. The war has escalated from internal ethnic tensions between native Ukraines, Muslim Tartars, and Russian Ukraines, to hot civil war in the Donbas, to Russia invading. However, now there is a threat that this conflict can escalate outside of the borders of Ukraine and cause a global conflict that leads to the next World War. How are the policies of the Biden administration, along with Republicans and Democrats backing him in Congress, inching us closer and closer to that reality?

Episode #151: 'Middle Class Joe'  

Direct link: [link] 

Joe Biden has been in Washington for the majority of his life. He was first elected to the United States Senate in 1972 when he was 29 years old, and he was one of Delaware’s two Senators for 30 years, before Barack Obama chose him as his running mate in 2008. Biden himself had run for president that year, but dropped out after a very poor showing in the primary. This was his second attempt at the run for the White House. He also ran in 1988, but dropped out of that race in shame after being exposed in several scandals surrounding plagiarism and outright lying about his resume. Biden finally won his party’s nomination in 2020, after losing the first two primaries and a deal was cut for all other nominees to drop out of the race to clear the way for Biden. He was sworn in as President the following January. Today Biden has rebranded himself as a champion of the middle class, but his record shows that he has done more in his time in Washington to build the middle class in China. How has 'Middle Class Joe' made multi-millions as a public servant, while helping to destroy the middle class here in America?

Episode #150: 'It's Rain'  

Direct link: [link] 

Have you ever heard the expression, 'Don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining'? It's a cute way of saying don't hurt me and pretend to be helping. It is the perfect expression to describe the narrative that the media and Biden administration are telling America. Their narrative is that the Biden administration is the most successful administration since FDR. They want us to believe the economy is roaring due to record job creation and low unemployment. We are told that America is stronger and better than we have ever been, but many Americans don't seem to be buying it. Maybe it is record high inflation, the high interest rates, or the push towards WWII, but many Americans do not share the optimism about the future of our nation. Three quarters of the nation believe we are on the wrong track, and a mere 16% say they are better now than when Biden took office. It is in this environment that Biden gives his second State of the Union address. Why is there such a disconnect between the story Biden and his surrogates want to tell, and the story that the public believes?

Episode #149: 'Shill'  

Direct link: [link] 

Meet the Press is the longest-running television program in America. The show hosts and has hosted many of the most important world leaders of the past 70 years. Meet the Press has had 12 hosts since it began in 1947, many of which are giants in American journalism, such as Martha Rountree, Ned Brooks, Tim Russert, and Tom Brokaw. Over the years Meet the Press has been a staple for those who follow politics and world affairs, and it has had a reputation for being none-partisan, unbiased, and objective. It was a program that was trusted on both sides of the political aisle, but something has happened to the show since the death of its longest serving host, Tim Russert in 2008. The show has been rapidly going downhill since 2014 when the current host, Chuck Todd took over. It is no longer none-partisan, unbiased, and objective. It has become hostile to Republicans while pushing the agenda of the Democrats. Todd is essentially a shill for the Democratic Party.

Episode #148: 'Nixon'  

Direct link: [link] 

If the United States intelligence community (IC) is plotting to destroy President Joe Biden it would not be the first time that American spies have worked to takedown an American president. It happened to John F. Kennedy. In his case they did not use a manufactured scandal to remove him from office. They used an assassin with a high power rifle to blow his head off in Dallas, Texas in front of hundreds of Americans. However, not all presidents that have been removed from office by the IC have been handled with such brutality. More often they use a phony scandal to assassinate the president politically, as in the case of Donald Trump. The phony Russiagate scandal was completely invented by the IC. It was used to damage Trump politically and destroy his chances for reelection. In Nixon's case, he had already won reelection, by the largest margin in American history. The IC then used the Watergate scandal to force Nixon to resign. Why did the IC turn on Nixon and destroy him?

Episode #147: 'Bait'  

Direct link: [link] 

The announcements of discoveries of classified documents at Joe Biden's Washington DC office and Wilmington, Delaware home have been welcomed surprises for many of Biden's opponents. The new year not only begins with Republicans taking control of the House of Representatives, but before they have begun any of their investigations Biden is already enthralled in a scandal. Biden's Attorney General has appointed a new Special Counsel to look into the discovery of these classified documents to determine if anything illegal was done, and if the nation's secrets have been compromised. The loudest cries for accountability have come from Democrats and the mainstream media, those who have been Biden's biggest defenders up until now. They are demanding answers, but only to the questions about these classified documents. It all seems a little fishy to me, particularly the timing. It's looks like bait!

The more we learn about the relationship between the FBI and Twitter before Elon Musk bought the company the more disturbing it becomes, although we should not be surprised. We have known that the CIA has had employees in American media companies for years, feeding the American people state sponsored propaganda. It's called Operation Mockingbird, and the Director of the CIA, William Colby admitted to it during the Church Committee hearings in 1975. The Twitter Files have only confirmed that it is still going on, and that it has expanded from legacy media to social media. We also learned that it's not only the CIA, but that FBI and DHS are also involved. The Twitter Files show the lengths theses agencies go to control public information, shape public opinions, and promote the interests of the uniparty. How does the Intelligence Community work to subvert the will of the American people, while working for the survival of the uniparty at all costs?

Episode #144: 'The Trade'  

Direct link: [link] 

When the Biden administration first made the offer for a prisoner swap with Russia it was a two for one offer. They offered the 'Merchant of Death', arms dealer Viktor Bout in a trade for WNBA player, Brittney Griner and marine veteran Paul Whelan. Russia refused the two for one offer and demanded a two for two offer to get both Griner and Whelan home. The second prisoner that Russia wanted was an assassin serving a life sentence in a German prison named, Vadim Krasikov. This was a ridiculous request and the Biden administration scoffed at it. This left a one for one trade on the table and Biden was made to choose between trading Bout for either Griner or Whelan. This is what NBC News reported initially, but then after Biden started receiving criticism because he chose Griner over Whelan NBC edited their report to say the choice was either Griner or no one; suggesting that Russia would not trade the Merchant of Death for Whelan. Has the Biden administration been honest about this trade deal, and why was Griner a priority for them?

Episode #143: 'Unconstitutional'  

Direct link: [link] 

Elon Musk is releasing internal documents from Twitter relating to the correspondence and decisions to censor information on the platform before he took charge of the company. These documents are being called the Twitter Files, and they are explosive. The files are still coming out, but so far we have learned that Twitter employees were breaking election laws by offering undeclared in-kind contributions to Democratic candidates before elections by censoring information that would be harmful to their campaigns. The files back up statements that Mark Zuckerberg made on Joe Rogan's podcast in August where he admitted the FBI was encouraging censorship at Facebook before the 2020 election, and they also back up an article published in the Intercept in October about leaked DHS documents confirming they were involved in censorship at these private tech companies as well.

The special counsel sequel will have a lot in common with the first special counsel investigation into President Donald Trump. The first special counsel investigation began 6 years ago and it was launched based on lies about the then President and manufactured evidence. The prosecutor during the first special counsel investigation was former Director of the FBI, Robert Mueller. He spent 2 years and 32 million taxpayer dollars to tell us that Trump broke no laws. The sequel is certain to end with the same outcome. The new prosecutor isn't a big name like Robert Mueller, but he is working with the same amount of evidence against President Trump; perhaps less. Trump was already impeached on one of the issues the new prosecutor will be investigating and he was acquitted by the Senate. Jack Smith, the new prosecutor, must find something on Trump that the House impeachment managers failed to find.

Episode #141: 'Sabotage'  

Direct link: [link] 

The results of the 2022 midterm election are in; for the most part. There are still a couple of runoffs and a handful of races that still need to be decided, but the balance of power is pretty much settled. Democrats will maintain control of the Senate with a slim majority, and Republicans will control the House with a slim majority. Democrats also picked up 2 governorships and control of 4 state congresses. All together it was not a great election for Republicans, and the leadership in the Republican Party is mostly to blame. Many of the setbacks that Republicans experienced were caused by these leaders. For example, despite winning more than 5 million more House votes Republicans did not pick up more House seats. This is because of the way new districts were drawn. There were serval other mistakes and mishaps made by Republican leaders that costed Republican candidates, but some of the issues at play were outright sabotage. What did some Republican leaders do to intentionally sabotage the party, and why did they do it? Join the conversation and get answers to this question and more on According2Sam episode #141.

Episode #140: 'Scandal'

The 2022 midterm election was not the wave election that many expected. Pundits were predicting a red wave like in 2010 when Democrats lost 63 House seats, or the blue wave in 2018 when Republicans lost 41 seats. Those predictions were wrong, because there were important factors in 2010 and 2018 that were not present in 2022. The Tea Party movement was organized during Obama's first two years as president. Every state, county, and town in America had its own Tea Party group that held regular meetings to discuss issues and strategy. They were organized outside of the Republican Party and they had a mission to not only challenge Democrats, but also the Republican establishment. The 2010 midterm was the first election were the power of the Tea Party movement was tested and it resulted in a red wave. In 2018 the issue that drove the blue wave was the Mueller investigation. Democrats used a fake scandal and a steady bombardment of propaganda from the media to paint President Trump as a Russian asset who was trying to fire the Special Counsel to avoid prosecution. This led to a blue wave. What can Republicans learn from these two wave elections to ensure they win in 2024?

The war in Ukraine is escalating as it enters into the first winter of the conflict. Russia has a history of winning war in the winter, and of using the harsh conditions of winter as a weapon of war. Russia had planned on using their gas as leverage against EU counties to negotiate a peace deal, but after the Nord Stream pipeline was sabotaged and destroyed they seem to be employing a new strategy. This new plan involves destroying all of Ukraine's infrastructure and utilities, leaving the citizens of Ukraine to suffer in the cold, dark, winter. Another issue at play this winter will be NATO countries enduring the scarcity of energy and skyrocketing prices. Public support for the war is already being challenged by growing antiwar movements in the United States and Europe, and these movements are expected to intensify as citizens will be asked to suffer and make more sacrifices for Ukraine. How will the growing opposition to the war, particularly in the United States, impact the war this winter? How are the war mongering elites planning to keep the war going despite the growing opposition? Join the conversation and get answers to this question and more on According2Sam episode #139.

Episode #138: 'Wrong Track'  

Direct link: [link] 


Election polling has been a mixed bag over the years and the inconsistency has left many people skeptical about polls. For example, Nate Silver from FiveThirtyEight correctly predicted every state in the 2012 reelection of Barack Obama, but then in 2016 when Donald Trump was elected Silver and many others got their predictions shockingly wrong. There are many more examples of polls correctly predicting the outcomes in elections, and others that got their predictions wrong. Polling is a science, but it is also an art. Pollsters must get the best samples of the public for their polls, but once you have a good sample you must ask the right questions to get a true understanding of the issues motivating voters. You can't just ask if they support candidate A or B. One question that has been a consistent barometer of what will happen in an election is the 'right track/wrong track' question. If pollsters find that a large percentage of their sample feels the nation, state, or city is on the wrong track it usually means doom for the people in power.

Episode #137: 'Mr.81Million'  

Direct link: [link] 


If you listen to the Democrats and media narrative President Biden is the most successful president in modern history. Along with winning more votes than any other president in American history, 81 million, he has followed that up with a string of wins for the American people in his first two years; according to them. He started winning with a $1.9 trillion stimulus package, and then followed with legislative wins that include an infrastructure package, the Chips Act, and he even signed a gun control law. All of these laws are very popular with the American people, so we are told, and if you listen to them Joe Biden is killing it! However, this is not reflected in the president's poll numbers. More evidence that Biden may not be 'killing it' as we are told, is the fact that he has zero campaign events in swing states in the last three weeks before the mid-term elections. Nobody wants to be seen with Mr.81Million in these final weeks. This does not match with what we are being told. Why is Biden not using his prestige as a successful president to campaign for candidates in tight races?

Democrats make many accusations against Republicans these days in the hyper-political environment we are currently living in. They call Republicans greedy, misogynistic, anti-democratic, and much more; but the go to indictment that Democrats charge Republicans with is the accusation of racism. It is an interesting play, because the history of racism Democrats claim to want to repair is the racism of the Democratic Party. Today the Democratic Party says they stand for diversity, equity, and inclusion, but for 100 years the party was the biggest obstacle to equality. Today Democrats control both houses of Congress. They control the White House. They are in charge in all of the largest cities in American, so where is the equality? They say if you just give us more power we can finally defeat those evil, racist, Republicans and make America more equal and just, but what have they done with the power they already have? Is the Democratic Party free of racism and now dedicated to equality, or is it the same old Democratic Party? How does the story about Democrat L.A. City Council President, Nury Martinez demonstrate that it's the same old Democratic Party? Join the conversation and get answers to this question and more on According2Sam episode #136.

LARPing is not a new phenomenon, but the term LARP is relatively new. LARP was included with another 370 words that were just added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary to update and modernize our vocabulary. The word LARP is an acronym that means Live Action Role Play. It simply means to dress and play make believe. Again, there is nothing new about dressing up and playing make believe, but the phenomenon has become so widespread that it has not only been given a name, the name has now become a part of our vocabulary. There are many different types of LARPS. Some like to dress up as vikings and make believe they are fighting a viking war. Some like to dress up as soldiers from the Civil War and reenact the battles. Some even dress as elves and goblins, and pretend they are in a fictional middle-earth. It's all fun and games for the LARPS, but no one takes LARPing as seriously as the Social Justice LARPS. These are the people who pretend to be activists for justice, but in actuality they couldn't careless about real justice. How can you recognize Social Justice LARPS, and why are there so many of them in our society today? Join the conversation and get answers to this question and more on According2Sam episode #135.

Episode #134: '100 Seconds to Midnight'  

Direct link: [link] 


The Doomsday Clock was created in 1947 as a way to determine how close the world is to a nuclear holocaust. The clock started at 7 minutes to midnight and it has fluctuated from 7 minutes to 2 minutes and back to 12 minutes to midnight since it's inception, depending on the level of threats in the world and the measures global leaders take to deescalate threats and stabilize the world. Midnight is the end of the world as we know it! Right now, because of the war in Ukraine and the conflict between Western nations and Russia the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists have moved the Doomsday Clock to 100 seconds to midnight. This is the closest the clock has been to midnight since it was created. That means we are closer today to a nuclear confrontation than anytime in the history of the world. Unlike in 1962 when the clock was 2 minutes to midnight during the Cuban Missile Crisis, the President of the United States is not working to secure peace. Instead, the Biden administration seems to be working overtime to make sure the Doomsday Clock reaches the final hour. What could President Biden do to end the war in Ukraine and make peace, and why isn't he doing it? Join the conversation and get answers to this question and more on According2Sam episode #134.

The crisis of migrants flooding across the southern border has reached a milestone. This year, for the first time, border patrol has recorded a record number of 2 million migrants crossing into the country. This milestone has happened without a hint of concern from the Biden administration. It's been almost 2 years since President Biden put Vice President Harris in charge of the border crisis, and it hasn't been a high priority on her agenda. That's not surprising considering that she believes the border is secure. She actually said the border was secure recently in an interview with 'Meet the Press'. In response to the lack of concern for the crisis at the border governors from border states have been bussing migrants to Washington DC and other Democrat ran cities that have designated themselves as "sanctuary cities". Then Governor DeSantis got into the game and flew 50 migrants to Martha's Vineyard, where the Vice President lives. The reaction was exactly what he anticipated. How has the plan to transport migrants to sanctuary cites been a great success for the governors who are participating in this endeavor?

Episode #132: 'Fire & Rain'  

Direct link: [link] 


On Tuesday President Joe Biden held a party at the White House to celebrate the passing of the 'Inflation Reduction Act', a spending bill worth $740 billion. It was a huge celebration that included members of congress, their staffs, and many invited guests. Six-time Grammy Award winning recording artist, James Taylor was invited as a special guests for entertainment. Before President Biden addressed those in attendance Taylor treated them with a rendition of his hit song 'Fire and Rain'. Then President Biden addressed those in attendance to boast about the passage of this enormous new spending bill. He bragged about all of the things that the bill would do; lower costs, reduce the deficit, fight Climate Change, and more. Most importantly, as the name of the bill suggests, he claimed that it would reduce inflation. The new consumer price index (CPI) numbers were released earlier that morning and the new numbers showed a rises in inflation when many were expecting a decline. This prompted a sell off in the stock market that marked the worst day on Wall Street since the 2020 crash from the pandemic. It was surreal watching markets tank as Biden and Democrats were celebrating at the White House. How does the real state of the economy contrast the positive rhetoric that we heard from Biden on Tuesday, and can we trust Biden to tell us the truth?

Episode #131: 'Election Deniers'

President Biden offered a few examples of the extremism he was referring to when he called out 'MAGA Republicans' in his speech from the pit of hell the other night. He said those who are pro-life, and those who believe in traditional marriage, between one man and one woman are extremist and a "threat to the very foundations of our Republic." Ignore the fact that the man making these accusations claims to be a devout Catholic, because he also said those who deny the outcome of elections were another example. Biden called these people "election deniers", and he claimed they did not believe in the United States Constitution. This example was as perplexing as the others, because not only was the Democratic Party spending millions to get people he called election deniers nominated in the Republican primaries, but many Democrats denied the outcomes of elections in which Republicans won in the past. Biden himself denied the outcomes of the 2000 presidential election, and the 2016 election.

I won't loot the Foot Locker or the liquor store. I won't burn down stores and churches. I have no intention of throwing Molotov cocktails at police cars, or tearing monuments off their pedestals. That's not how I do business. That's what Democrats do, and that is what they did throughout the entire summer of 2020 leading up to the presidential elections; nationwide. Democrats rioted in the streets when Justice Kavanaugh was sworn in, and they recently rioted after the Dobbs decision. Democrats were prepared to riot in the streets after the Derek Chauvin trial, but they got the guilty verdict they were demanding through the threat of rioting. Democrats always riot in the streets. It's their thing, but it's not my thing. I will not be rioting in the streets if President Trump is indicted. In fact, if he is guilty of all of the things they are telling us he is guilty of he should be indicted. Why am I calling for President Trump to be indicted immediately, and why is it never going to happen?

Sam Harris made a fool of himself on the 'Triggernometry' podcast last week, when he justified hiding Hunter Biden's laptop from voters before the 2020 election and said he didn't care if it had the corpses of children on it. In our discussion we examine Harris's comments, but in a larger context of a phenomenon affecting many more people than Harris. This phenomenon is the self-destructive obsession to see Donald Trump destroyed. In pursuit of this obsession they end up destroying themselves. Harris is only the most recent example, but you will find more examples in this episode. Of course we can't cover all of the people who have destroyed their careers and themselves in their obsession of Donald Trump. The list is too long, but by examining only a few examples from the past week you will see how prevalent this phenomenon is, and how dangerous it is. It is like these people are in a cult.

Episode #128: 'Defund the FBI'  

Direct link: [link] 


Comparing the calls to defund the police during the Black Lives Matter riots of 2020 to the current calls to defund the FBI by members of Congress is utter sophistry. The calls to defund the police in 2020 were met with actual policies to defund local police agencies in several municipalities. Los Angeles, Austin, and New York City are a few examples of cities that actually defunded their police departments, despite criticism and objections to the policy. It was their prerogative! The people of those cities elect mayors and city councils that have oversight over those local police departments. In fact, it was only after the policy started polling negatively that Democrats started fleeing from it. When Congresswoman Greene tweeted "DEFUND THE FBI" she received lots of criticism as well, even some from her own party. Congressman Grenshaw said that it made Republicans look "unserious". However, Greene was the only one who was actually being serious about oversight of the FBI. Why is it Congress's job to do oversight of the FBI, and what leverage does Congress have to compel the FBI to comply with their oversight outside of funding?

Episode #127: 'Dereliction of Duty'  

Direct link: [link] 


After throwing every charge possible at Donald Trump to see if anything sticks to him Liz Cheney and her Democrat allies have settle on 'dereliction of duty'. They first claimed that President Trump incited his supporters to commit violence in an attempt to foment a coup d'etat and overthrow the government, but now they have made a more obscure accusation that they believe will be easier for the public to accept. Their focus now is on the 187 minutes of the riot at the Capitol and the actions taken by the president to stop it. Liz Cheney says that President Trump's inaction to stop the riot represents the most serious dereliction of duty of any president in American history. However, she may be overlooking the administration that her father served in as Vice President. The Bush administration was warned many times in the spring and summer of 2001 that Sunni fundamentalist were in the United States and that they were planning a terrorist attack. Not only did the Bush administration do nothing to stop it, they made no attempt to warn the American people. Three thousand Americans were killed on their watch.

Direct link: [link] 


Last year seventeen recipients of the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences signed an open letter to President Joe Biden in support of his Build Back Better (BBB) package. At the time of this letter Democrats were proposing a bill that was $3.5 trillion in government spending. This was after they had passed a $1.9 trillion stimulus package earlier in the year. The open letter from these economic experts said there was a robust recovery taking place in the American economy, and that the BBB package would provide much needed support for the recovering economy. These experts expressed some concerns over inflation, but projected only a small, short term, rise in inflation that would quickly come back down. Democrats used this letter and the credibility of these experts to promote their spending package, but as inflation started to climb and persist even without their new spending they had to admit that the experts had got it wrong. What are they saying now about the '17 Nobel Laureates', and how is one Democratic Senator using their miscalculation to promote his new spending bill?

There are many political parties in the United States, but we only hear about the two major parties. There is the Green Party, the Libertarian Party, the Constitution Party, and a few other even less known political parties. However, the Republican and Democratic parties dominate our political landscape and wield all the power in this country. This is by design. The two major parties are the most powerful because it allows the elite oligarchs in this country to consolidate their power. The two parties play off each other, setting up the other as an existential threat to our way of life that must be defeated. The people fearfully support the party that they believe is fighting to preserve their way of life and the oligarchs remain in power, because they control both parties. Georgetown University professor Carroll Quigley writes about this in 'Tragedy and Hope'. He says the two parties should be "almost identical", so power can change hands "without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy." But what happens if the people take over one of the two major parties, how would that change the political landscape in the United States?

Episode #124: 'Fact Checker'  

Direct link: [link] 


Mainstream media outlets went on a tirade this past week about how conservatives and right-wing media doubted the story of the 10 year old girl who became pregnant in Ohio and was forced to travel to the neighboring state of Indiana for an abortion. They attempted to shame people who were asking questions and trying to vet the story. ​When the story was first reported in a local Indianapolis newspaper there was only one source with no other corroborating details. It really shouldn't be surprising that people had questions about the authenticity of the story, especially when no one had been arrested and there didn't seem to be an active investigation into the sexual abuse of the child. However, the first news outlet to raise doubts about this story was not right-wing, conservative, media. It was the Washington Post who published an article from a fact checker who explained the trouble he was having in vetting the story. Why was the fact checker having so much trouble vetting the story, and how did his article in the Washington Post influence others to start doubting the story?

A recent Gallup poll found that confidence in United States institutions is falling to new lows. The poll asked participants about their level of confidence in public schools, the military, small business, big business, the police and more. In all participants were asked about 16 separate institutions. Gallup has been conducting this same poll since 1993, and this year's average was a new low. This year's poll found that Americans are less confident in U.S. institutions than they were last year, with significant declines in 11 of the 16 institutions tested. No institution in the test improved in confidence from the year prior. The institution in the test with the least amount of confidence is the United States Congress, and right above them is television news. Print news is also in the bottom 5 institutions that Americans have confidence in, meaning that Americans have almost no confidence in our news. It also seems that confidence in our news is on a rapid decline. This is a serious problem.

Direct link: [link] 

In a CNN interview a few days ago a representative from the Biden administration was asked about inflation, rising fuel prices, and the fact that Americans are struggling to cope with these issues. His answer has gone viral and it has shocked many people who can't believe the Biden representative said the quiet part out loud. The question he was asked was in relation to the war in Ukraine, since the Biden administration has blamed inflation and rising fuel prices on Russia's actions in Ukraine. The Biden representative said that it was necessary for the American people to suffer under the crippling inflation because what was at stake was, "the future of the liberal world order." Many Americans have no idea what the liberal world order even is, let alone do they care enough about it to justify paying higher prices. This answer from the Biden representative only confirmed that the American people are not President Biden's highest priority, and that there are influences outside of the United States that are a greater concern for him. What exactly is the liberal world order, and why is it so important that Americans must suffer for its survival?

The United States of America is a Constitutional Republic, meaning we are a collection of states and commonwealths that are united by a federation. However, the debates about the size and role of the federal government in relation to the states has been a consistent battle going back to the inception of this nation. Alexander Hamilton, who was a staunch federalist, argued for a large powerful federal government that played a large role in the happenings of the individual states. Other men, such as Patrick Henry and Samuel Adams argued for a small federal government, with a limited role in the states. In 1829 Andrew Jackson created the Democratic Party in opposition to a large powerful central government. He said it was the enemy of individual liberty. It is ironic that today so many democrats are upset by the recent Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v Wade. How does this ruling give more power to the people in individual states, and how is the Democratic Party spreading fear and disinformation about this ruling to increase voter turnout in the fall?
