July 28, 2019 - Special guest and Baltimore mayoral candidate #ShannonWright joins us for this discussion. The media is abluster with claims of racism for calling out the problems of #Baltimore, and the failures of Rep. #ElijahCummings. But is stating a fact racism? Does that help Baltimore? And what does Baltimore MD need?

July 26, 2019 - NO Soundbites Allowed - As news and social media focus almost exclusively on the word "#Blackground" in a now infamous tweet from #BetteMidler we don't. Because the real racial bias is a different part of that #BetteMidlertweet. And it needs to be discussed.

July 19, 2019 - There is a lot of bluster surrounding a national minimum wage of $15/hr. Sometimes (like in the case of Rep. Anthony Brindisi) the glib soundbites conflict. But we look at the issue from 2013 to the vote on HR 582, to see what it will mean to the future of America. Recorded on Facebook Live

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 15, 2019 - NO Soundbites Allowed - There is no shortage of controversies that surround #LauraLoomer. Then there are the many memes, not to mention bans from social media. So we spoke to her to get her direct unedited live response. You can decide for yourself, with this interview that asked tough questions and got answers on #Muslimbans, the billion dollar Facebook/social media #lawsuit, President Trump, and more.

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.
