Mindlessly scrolling through social media. Our children are living through social media nowadays. TikTok is a psychological warfare app against you and your children. It is intended to control your thoughts, which then controls your mind, and even your soul. Sounds a little extreme, right? Slater has the “True Story” on TikTok.
The Democrats war on Charter schools is now just a complete disgrace. Charter schools may soon have to rely on private vendors for funding, because in the House Democrats education budget proposal, the Biden administration voted to cut $40 million from the Federal Charter Schools Program. Banning charter schools from federal funding puts children at risk of learning, while trying drive kids back to public schools, and is just another example of systematic racism. Guest Lenny McAllister, is here to discuss the ramifications of this alleged proposal, and why he says this is not all about Democracy.
The Chinese Communist Party has infiltrated America without firing a single shot. Mike Slater explains how the CCP is reaching America’s youth and flooding society with propaganda. Plus, Clyde Prestowitz joins the show to discuss a potential social credit score system coming to America as well as China’s role in a major U.S. hacking. True …
Since the September 11th attacks twenty years ago, our military has changed, and so have the threats to our country. Major General Jeffrey Schloesser and Mike Slater delve into some of these changes that have happened over the past twenty years, as well as the major concern that our military is no longer a fit military because we are not a fit country. As Major General Schloesser states, “If you don’t have the physical fitness and education, then you can’t be part of it. We need to be better role models.”
This isn’t a social experiment, this is our U.S. military. Putin, the CCP, and all these other countries are just sitting there laughing at us, as our President and country want to focus more on wokeism than having a strong military. Former USMC, Former Ohio Treasurer, and Senate Candidate (R-OH), Josh Mandel, is here to discuss how this so-called social experiment and infiltration of “woke garbage” in our Armed Forces, boils over to the classroom and the business world. It’s not about skin color, background, religion, politics, or anything of that nature; It’s the comradery, and building a strong military, not a soft one. We are tearing everyone apart, and we need to do better as a nation.
Here’s a scary question: If America were under attack, would our armed forces be capable of defending the country? And here’s a scary answer: According to many high-ranking analysts, the answer is…unclear. A significant, and underreported, factor is the physical fitness of the recruits and troops themselves. Studies have shown that young people are ineligible because of their sheer inability to endure the rigors of basic training. Complicating the declining condition of our fortitude: wokeness, which has crept into recruitment and a pernicious indoctrination of new soldiers. Human ‘infrastructure’ aside, what about our hard assets around the world? Mike and company explore America’s military posture. Are we ready for war?
Disinformation, misinformation, it’s all in Biden’s plan to censor us on social media platforms and take away our First Amendment rights. As well all know, the Biden administration is censoring Trump as well, by banning him from social media. Executive Director of Constitutional Litigation Partnership at America First Policy Institute, Katie Sullivan, is here to break down why Trump is the President for the people, his legal argument against Big Tech, collusion with Democrats and social media, how the history of Section 230 relates to ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’ and what’s the “one thing that drives her every day.”
In 2017, Pentagon data showed 71% of America’s youth between the ages of 17 and 24 years old, are ineligible to serve in the United States military forces. So, how does that relate to today? Dr. Nan Hayworth is here to discuss our woke military, and what’s behind the weakening of our youth.
Is it possible that some of the worst stories from the past years were formulated by some of America’s most trusted institutions? Mike Slater says it has happened before in foreign governments and has the examples. Plus, how is President Trump standing up to America’s institutions? Katie Sullivan from the America First Policy Institute joins with more.

The extreme looting and rioting that is currently happening in South Africa, is eerily similar to what is going on in many of our major American cities. There have been over 200 deaths and over 2,500 arrested in these South African protests. As Lisa Daftari explains, this is the first post-apartheid conflict that we are seeing in South Africa, and it’s mostly due to the current global climate from the pandemic. Guest Lisa Daftari helps us understand who is behind the South African protests, and why we here in the United States need to pay close attention to what is going on in South Africa, as we are actually facing the same thing.
Cherise Trump (no relation to the President), is here to discuss the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement against Israeli companies or companies that operate in Israel. The BDS movement tends to reestablish itself, or come up, whenever Israel has to defend itself against the Palestinians. It’s also been taking off on woke college campuses. Students are now pushing support for the BDS movement and no one is doing anything about it. Cherise Trump breaks it all down for us, and shares her on outlook on what our future could look like after these woke students graduate from college and enter the real world.
From South Africa to right here in the United States, wokeism and COVID-19 is bringing the world to its knees. Just how bad is it overseas and what should we be prepared for? Mike Slater gets a full report from Lisa Daftari. Plus, Ben & Jerrys provides the latest example of anti-Semitism says Cherise Trump.
