LR Podcast S3E28: Post-Midterm Special

As far as elections go, Arizona has become the new Florida. Florida had become the laughingstock when it came to running elections during the Bush v Gore fiasco in 2000/2001. Now Florida has cleaned up its act and is now a model of how elections should be run in the US. For the second major election in a row, Arizona has failed to finish counting ballots and declaring winners, long after almost every other state has finished counting theirs sufficiently to declare winners and losers.

LR Podcast, S3E27: Election Special 2022

Things like ESG already control the behavior of individuals indirectly. The aim of the Utopian Left is to extend this sort of control to the individual level. Examples of this can already be seen in such things like vaccine passports and mask mandates.  The reliance on technology will be used as a point of control.  Access to things like education, online commerce, and entertainment will be subject to an ever-increasing array of rules and regulations.  In order to partake in the modern lifestyle, people will be made to trade their freedom and privacy for goods and services.

LR Podcast, S3E24: Three Anti-Trump Fallacies

The feeling of moral superiority by those who continue to hold onto these falsehoods must be so high, that no amount of factual data, or evidence to the contrary, can shake them loose from those who cling to them.

If Trump is a fascist, especially a Nazi, he's certainly a very poor one.  If his followers are fascists, they sure cling to a lot of non-fascists ideals.  One of the defining traits of Nazis was their violent antisemitism. Trump ended the Iran nuclear agreement, something that the Israelis celebrated, and their Prime Minister at the time called for in front of the UN.  This paved the way for one of Trump's in-laws, one of his Jewish in-laws to broker a peace deal between Israel and several neighboring Arab states.  He then moved the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. These are things that a true Nazi would have a hard time doing, and even a harder time selling to his supporters.

LR Podcast, S2, E33: “Some of the time,” has ended.

They don't know if “Build Back Better” is better, but they do know that you can't spend trillions of dollars and not cause inflation.  They know that they were lied to about Russian collusion, Kenosha, and Jussie Smollett being the victim of a hate crime. What else have they been lied to about? they wonder.

LR Podcast S2, E28: The Electorate Says NO

This past Tuesday, Americans across the nation said “no” to the divisive progressive Democrat agenda.  Most notably, Governor-elect  Glenn Youngkin, who ran a race focused on education and the economy defeated one-time governor, Terry McAuliffe.  The election turned on one issue primarily, the question of who should decide what Virginia kids get taught in school, … Continue reading LR Podcast S2, E28: The Electorate Says NO
