July 19, 2019 - Ever wonder what makes the so-called "Squad" special? We don't know either but we discuss it. As well as the insanity of Progressives picking and choosing what the youth are capable of, in the best interest of their next election. Plus Ilhan Omar and BDS. What do you think?

July 14, 2019 - NO Soundbites Allowed - We traverse the path to the #ICE immigration raids set to cover 9 cities across America today. While the Government does its duty, #AOC and Rep. Garcia attack #TomHoman, and defend illegal aliens. Which is the path that best protects Americans? Which path do you agree with? Let us know.

July 9, 2019 - So much intrigue in the world and the local races. Did the US Women's #soccer drag an American flag? Are primary elections being subverted? Is the #NY-22 race finished with the announcement of Steve Cornwell as a candidate? What does #Cornwell bring to the table? We find out in this episode.

July 7, 2019 - TECN TV New York - There is still more to be said about Colin Kaepernick's attack on Quaker Betsy Ross and her flag. Like what Frederick Douglass and Jesse owens thought of America. So we compare the privileged Kaepernic to Owens. But the big feature is immigration. We track the way politicians from coast to coast are using illegal aliens to polarize elections, protect partisanship, and use taxpayer funding for it all. It's aggravating if you step back and see the big picture.

June 25, 2019 - The impact of #decriminalizing marijuana, which isn't the legalization most may think is a big point in this podcast. As is Rep. Anthony Brindisi stealing the credit from the work of other members of Congress. Speaking of #Congress, #AOC has picked a fight that even #Poland can't let go unanswered. And we update the latest on the Brussels terror plot.

June 18, 2019 - NO Soundbites Allowed (taped at 9:45am) -  In the virtual dead of night, Gov. Andrew Cuomo rushed to sign Bill A3675B - Green Light for Driver's Licenses. This is the controversial Bill that effectively shields illegal aliens (commonly called undocumented immigrants) from ICE and Federal immigration law. We discuss some of the issues and consequences of defying the public.

June 11, 2019 - TECN TV New York - It's a crazy political world, but not all of it gets the same coverage. Like Councilman Dan Livingston violating Homeland Security regulation in an upgrade of prior ethics violations. Or the CDC admitting that its gun violence data is wrong to the upside. And then there are the NY elected Democrats, who seem to think that the will of the people is optional when it comes to illegal alien drivers licenses. Thus we take a break to rank the kaiju, like Godzilla, as if they were running in the 2020 election.

JUne 8, 2019 - In the wake of the Virginia Beach workplace shooting, some anti-2nd Amendment groups and Progressive Dems are arguing that a ban of silencers is needed. But has anyone ever considered the actual data on this? Will this really help anyone, or just steal freedom?

June 8, 2019 - TECN TV New York - In the first part of our 2 hour Saturday broadcast, we spent time discussing the consequences that will be facing New York and other States. When Gov. McAuliffe reinstated the right to felons, no one thought that the result would be a pedophile advocating incest would run for Congress. But it happened, and New York should be on guard.

Plus we talk unemployment and the potential impact on the economy. But the big news is that with the support of our audience, our on-going battle for ALL the content you love has made a difference. But the battle is hardly over. 

June 4, 2019 - NO Soundbites Allowed - In the far flung days of the 1970's #JoeBiden was happy to try to sell himself to the highest bidder - in his own words it didn't happen as he was rejected. Fast forward to 2014 where Biden lost a million dollars while he had no expenses as Vice President. Just 4 years later and hopeful #nominee Biden is a flush #millionaire and leading Democrat polls. Something isn't right here.

June 1, 2019 - NO Soundbites Allowed - The full show on TECN TV featured one controversy after another. The Virginia Beach mass shooting displays that gun control does not answer the question of why someone is willing to kill innocent people. Deerfield NY shows us how Government punishes those using the 2nd Amendment for the very purpose it exists. And then we talk about immigration. Which leads us to Part 2.

Each time the core reason for the shooting goes without question. There can never be a serious change without ignoring the political emotional games. But what do you think?

Also many thanks to our supporters who keep the show alive with their donations. Hour 2 is our interview with our first guest ever, Dr. Giovanni Scarinngi.

May 23, 2019 - TECN TV New York - In a day of breaking news we cover some upsetting events. From yet another display of how ineffective gun control laws are, compared to the promises we are sold about them, we see the example of an Upstate school locked down. We covered the shocking news that the American Taliban, John Lindh, is being released early from prison and going to Virginia - on Memorial Day weekend - though he is unrepentant and reportedly still a danger per bipartisan Senators. And then there is Iran and the growth of Socialism. But on the bright side, we announce our special guest for our 200th episode!
