Washington DC is putting an end to masks, for everyone except in school and libraries. So the adults get to go on with their lives while the kids have to keep the masks on. The people who vote get to take the masks off.
The U.S. has suspended all imports of Avocados from Mexico over a drug cartel threat. Can we talk about how Mexico is becoming more lawless by the day?
Nathan Chen, U.S. Gold Medal figure skater, has been labelled a “too white” traitor by the Chinese Communists.
CNN Producer is still unhappy with Joe Rogan. So unhappy that they would go so far to equate Rogan with Jan 6th with a headline so ridiculous, they had to change it.
Canadian Press says “freedom” has become a “far-right talking point” in their attempt to smear Canadian Truckers.
The Left continues to defend shoplifting, even going the length to say that opposing shoplifting makes you a bigot.
RussiaGate continues. Hillary Clinton lied, and Hillary Clinton spied. Donald Trump was right.
The Big Story:
Russia is posed to invade Ukraine in the coming days, weeks at most. We have troops in Poland and refugees are beginning to flood the border. What’s the plan here? What comes next? Does the Biden Administration plan to stop Russia from invading Ukraine?
We speak with Major Mike Lyons about the latest on our military actions in Ukraine, our refugee aid for Poland, and America’s plans moving forward.
For a lot of people, this is vindication. FINALLY! Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation is bearing fruit! But this? This is uglier than many people would have considered. Hillary and Democrats spying on Trump when he was a private citizen, and as President of the United States?
However, this is Hillary Clinton we’re talking about. And there seems very little that she won’t do to win, or destroy her enemies.
CNN is not a news organization. They can be….they may want to be…but as long as they publish nonsense hysteria like this, they’ll never make it. And when they do this, they should be met with scorn and derision. This isn’t journalism. It’s not even opinion! It’s propaganda.
We live in an age of abundant censorship. From Joe Rogan to Dan Bongino, platforms are becoming the gatekeepers. What draws you to a social media account? What moves people Does a high follower count equate to high quality count? Do follower counts even matter? Do you have to engage in an outrage to get followers?
Do you want 100 social media friends, or do you want 10 authentically engaged friends? What is the difference between misinformation and censorship?
How many social media platforms can we handle? What if Joe Rogan just decides to start his own streaming platform? Would you follow?
The Left desperately wants to hold on to the culture, but their aggressive push of censorship has America seeing what they are really about. Whether it’s Spotify or YouTube or Facebook, Americans realize that Big Tech and the Woke-Left are not their friends.

Musician Neil Young gave Spotify an ultimatum: You can have my music, or you can carry Joe Rogan’s podcast, but you can’t have both. Why? Because Neil Young is among many accusing Rogan of pushing Covid misinformation.
The result: Spotify no longer carries Neil Young music.
Also, the GDP numbers look great. But that first look ain’t the right look.

I have stated – and I am in no way trying to reshape the words I’ve written, posted on social media or explained via my radio shows – that doctors and data show that the Covid-19 vaccines have been helpful in preventing death amongst vaccinated people. I’m fine with people getting vaccinated. But I do not support force: I support choice. Whether you get vaccinated or not is completely up to you, including whether or not you consult with your doctor.
When I came across this piece at National Review, I thought I could have written it. Michael Brendan Dougherty explains that the fear Americans are being hammered with will only end when we stop looking to so-called experts and failed institutions for their “help:”
This is a question of politics — political culture, the authority of normal life versus the respected authorities in charge of public health. Public-health authorities don’t know how to stop giving you extra-restrictive advice. And they can’t learn how to stop giving it if we don’t learn how to stop asking for it. Or until we start ignoring what they say, and start punishing politicians who translate their guidance into nuisances.

I generally agree with his overall point, and wanted to further elaborate on my point above. I oppose forced vaccination. I find those who favor employers demanding their employees get vaccinated disgusting. It’s more than just a strong disagreement; the people who advocate for forced vaccination believe in an America that is anything but America.
I support those who have already had Covid deciding that they do not need the vaccine. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY, and a doctor in his own right) has long been discussing the value of natural immunity, meaning those who already have had Covid-19 have natural antibodies – natural immunities – that keep them safe. Forcing those people to get a vaccine seems backwards and irrational. I also support the use of monoclonal antibodies, or other therapeutics that a citizen and their doctor decide to take.
To that end, I support a citizen and their doctor deciding to use hydroxychloroquine. I support a citizen and their doctor deciding to use ivermectin, which I am pretty sure is a phrase that will get you banned from Facebook. Imagine the world we Americans live in now. Stating “I support citizens and their doctors making decisions about their own health, including what treatments to try” is a radical, revolutionary act!
As Joe Rogan stated on his podcast, they (the politicos, the health professionals, the media) are “mini-dictators:”
The left thinks they know better than you and they aren’t afraid to let you know. Joe Rogan is just the latest target. The wildly popular podcast host is being attacked for talking to “fringe” personalities on his show. Spodify paid $100 million for the rights to host his podcast and is now being accused of “spreading conspiracy theories.” Tony Katz tells the elites where they can shove their complaints.
