We, as a nation, must be able to discuss things that are uncomfortable, without being silenced. Americans are too afraid to have that uncomfortable discussion, or fear that they will be censored for speaking out. Many steer away from discussing hot-button topics like mask mandates, vaccines, and even election integrity. The number one issue that Republicans need to very diligent about, though, is election integrity. Minnesota’s RNC Committeeman, Max Rymer, joins Mike Slater share his thoughts on election integrity, how to survive in a blue state politically, if blue states can become red again, and why he says that his state of Minnesota is ‘ground zero’ for bad political ideas.

Michael Seifert, Founder of PublicSq.com, joins the show to discuss businesses in the blue states, as well as his app that provides an outlet for consumers to spend their money elsewhere.

Americans are losing their sense of rights and responsibility, because the public health and government elites do not trust the American people. Americans deserve to have a choice, they deserve to have a say, and the American people deserve honest and transparent information from our public health officials. We have been told so many different things during this pandemic that we now have a lack of trust in our experts, who now feel they have to decide everything for us when it comes to our health. Chairman for the Center for a Healthy America at the America First Policy Institute and Former Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal, breaks down the three components when talking about public health and what’s healthy, as he and Mike Slater have an honest conversation about healthcare.
Biden has, not only ignored, but also violated the Federal law, and he is ordering ICE officers and Border Patrol Agents to do the same. He clearly has no interest in deporting illegal immigrants, which has migrants taking advantage of the open border. ICE Officers and Border Patrol Agents need permission to deport them, and since it’s taking at least a few months to even get that permission, they are releasing migrants into the U.S., which has caused a tremendous impact on our country, and especially in the state of Texas. It’s all in the name of power and votes for the Democrats. Former Kansas Secretary of State and currently the General Counsel for the Alliance for Free Citizens, Kris Kobach, is the lead attorney in a federal lawsuit on behalf of Texas Sheriffs and ICE officers against the Biden administration, and he joins Mike Slater to discuss Biden’s ongoing border crisis.

Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona recently tweeted about a Wisconsin study showing why masking kids is an effective way to prevent them from contracting the Coronavirus. The problem is, he tweeted out false information. The Senior Author of the study stated that they were not able to give out any information as to the role that masks play in the “observed low in-school transmission rates.” Yet, Twitter did not label Cardona’s tweet as misinformation or as an inaccurate representation of the study. Why is that? Who decides what fake news is? Mike Slater argues that this is the exact reason why we cannot trust the experts, in his latest ‘don’t trust the experts’ segment on today’s show.
Are people inherently good people? We have a government that is trying to make it so they track our every move, whether it be how many miles we drive in our car or how much money we deposit in our accounts. They are even going after frustrated parents who are standing up to the woke indoctrination of kids in schools. Yet, if the world views people as inherently good people, then why does the government feel or think that more laws will help our society? Mike Slater makes the case against the idea that people are inherently good, as he discusses how fragile our society is, and how this all ties in to the true story of civilization.
