Telling the stories that the media ignores! A podcast hosted by Ann McElhinney & Phelim McAleer, the conservative filmmakers behind the Gosnell movie, Fracknation, The Harvey Weinstein Trial: Unfiltered, and FBI Lovebirds. Project of the Unreported Story Society 501c(3).
On this week’s episode of The Ann & Phelim Scoop, we preview the play’s premiere at the conservative conference this weekend. The left has gone absolutely unhinged at the thought of CPAC attendees seeing the truth behind the Russia collusion hoax. But it isn’t just the left - some on the right have displayed the same outrage. We discuss.
Speaking of deranged leftists, we also touch on the latest from the campaign trail. It looks like Bernie Sanders has locked up his party’s nomination and members of the liberal elite aren’t having it. We also cover some climate change news and the very creepy move Mike Bloomberg is making in an attempt to “fight” it.
During our time in New York, we’ve spent some time in a few bookstores and are shocked to see how much “woke literature” is on the shelves and directed at children! From feminism to intersectionality, it seems like every one of the left’s favorite issues has made its way into children’s literature. We also cover two absurd articles from the New York Times and talk about a new form of activism: “rage baking.” We also have a special *Not* Crazy California segment - it’s time for some good news from the west coast! We wrap up the show talking about the film The Hunt, which is finally making its way to movie theaters very soon. We discuss why conservatives may be wrong to condemn it.
This week we recap our recent interview with Dr. Elizabeth Loftus, the psychologist and memory expert who served as an expert witness for the Defense in the Harvey Weinstein trial. Dr. Loftus discussed her work as well as NYU’s cancellation of her scheduled campus lecture - likely in response to her work with the Weinstein team.

As you may know, our play, FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers will be shown at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at the end of the month! This marks the first play performance at the annual conference. We discuss how you can help us get FBI Lovebirds to CPAC and the “perks” you’ll receive for your support. You can send your tax-deductible donation at FBILovebirds.com.
Also, we recently had a “throuple” date with Mark Steyn on Valentines Day. Steyn was a recent guest on the podcast and we can’t recommend his upcoming 2020 cruise enough.
Finally, we turn once again to the topic of fracking. Hollywood actor and activist Mark Ruffalo recently posted a video detailing his support for Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and why he thinks it's time to “ban” fracking. Ironically, Ruffalo refers to a scene from Gasland in which a homeowner sets his tap water on fire, supposedly due to fracking. We’ve discussed that clip - and why it’s bogus - in length on past podcast episodes. It’s also the scene that got us interested in the issue of fracking. It’s time for another fact-check.
In this week’s episode we celebrate the life of our dear friend Orson Bean who passed away this past weekend. Orson was a Hollywood hero and a legend who brought joy to so many people through his incredible career in entertainment. He was a strong man of faith and family and he will be missed dearly by so many.

Also in this week’s episode we talk about the onslaught of attacks that we’ve received from the left since the announcement that FBI Lovebirds has been invited to CPAC. Even George Conway was throwing punches our way! If you haven’t contributed to send FBI Lovebirds to CPAC - we hope you will. We are about 20% of the way to our goal and still have $44,000 raise in a very short amount of time.
You can pitch in at FBILovebirds.com.
We also discuss a BIZARRE and false study from Yale that alleges that fracking causes STDs. It’s frightening that the anti-fracking left will peddle whatever lies they can to stop one of the most beneficial things for our global economy. It’s lunacy! We also have some very interesting stories about Joe Biden, AOC, and our New York AirBnb! Please enjoy this week’s episode of the Ann & Phelim Scoop!
Brexit has finally arrived! Just a few short days ago, The UK has officially left the European Union.. On this week’s episode of The Ann & Phelim Scoop, we discuss this victory for democracy and discuss why the left isn’t too happy about this development (even thought the left were once the most ardent Brexiteers).
We also made a very difficult admission on this week’s announcement. On one very specific issue we have discovered that we actually agree with Michael Moore! The filmmaker hit the campaign trail recently and discussed his frustration with Michael Bloomberg being allowed on the Democrat debate stage and how the Democrat establishment really really like rich establishment candidates.
Hopefully you’ve been following along with The Harvey Weinstein Trial: Unfiltered, our brand new verbatim podcast. This week, we summarize the first several days of the trial and bring you first-hand information from inside the courtroom that the media doesn’t want you to know. Also, Phelim shares his “Top 5 Reasons'” Harvey Weinstein may be acquitted.

This week The Ann & Phelim Scoop is coming to you from New York City! We will be here for the next few weeks as we cover the Harvey Weinstein trial for our new daily podcast, The Weinstein Trial: Unfiltered.
Watch the show on YouTube: https://youtu.be/3kGOJm7569o
You might be curious as to why we are devoting so much time covering the Harvey Weinstein trial. It’s simple: this is the biggest trial of the year . . . and the media isn’t covering it fairly. When people hear the words of the attorneys, the accusers, and the court - it becomes clear that there is so much more to the Weinstein story than meets the eye. If you would like to listen to The Weinstein Trial: Unfiltered, you can access it at WeinsteinPodcast.com.
Also while we were in New York, we decided to take a trip to the horrifying new art exhibit in Manhattan, “Abortion is Normal: An Emergency Art Show.” The art show was created to highlight the importance of abortion and what Ann and I found so strange when we visited the exhibit was that there were no pictures of **actual** abortions.
Perhaps that’s because abortion is not normal or trendy . . . ? In this week’s episode you’ll hear the outrageous things we found at the exhibit. Lastly, our movie of the week is a wonderful film about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. It is an incredibly moving documentary that hits theaters this weekend. If you find time, please get out and see the film. As we discovered when we did the Gosnell movie, opening weekend is very important . . . so make a plan to see it soon.
Hillary Clinton just won’t go away! Hulu announced that they will be releasing a new documentary on the failed 2016 candidate. Will it include evidence of her corruption or whitewash her history? We suspect it will be the latter.

Josh Fox is back! You might remember Fox as the producer of the documentaries Gasland and Gasland II, which helped to destroy the fracking industry in upstate New York, leaving thousands of farmers out of work. Fox also has a history of lying about fracking and we bring you the latest lies from the filmmaker on this week’s episode.
James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas is out with another shocking video, this time about the Bernie Sanders campaign. A Sanders campaign staffer was caught on video praising gulags and preaching violence.
Also, “woke” Twitter exploded recently after a video of actor Vince Vaughn speaking with President Trump at a football game went viral. It’s the most recent case of Trump Derangement Syndrome!
A new art show entitled “Abortion is Normal” is currently open in New York - you won’t believe some of the pieces on display. Unsurprisingly, none of them include any information about the actual abortion procedure - something we outlined in our 2018 film Gosnell. Finally, Ann provides instructions on making a delicious - and easy - bread pudding that we’re sure will be a hit at your brunch table.
Thank you to all of you who supported us so far. We hope you enjoy this week’s episode!

The environmental celebrity activists are at it again! Actor Martin Sheen was arrested at a “Fire Drill Friday” protest put on by his Hollywood cohort Jane Fonda. We take a listen to his “climate protest” speech and find out why he was an actor on The West Wing, rather than a writer.

Speaking of celebrities and climate change activism, we talk about the latest developments in “Megxit,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s decision to leave their position as “Senior Royals” and split their time between Great Britain and North America. Talk about a big carbon footprint!
On the podcast, we cover the most popular Farsi tweet on the planet - from President Trump! It may very well lead to a nightmare scenario for the far left in America. In other positive news, President Trump is rolling back onerous environmental regulations - and the New York Times isn’t happy about it.
We’re very excited to let you know that a very generous supporter has offered to match ALL donations to the Unreported Story Society this week.

Hillary Clinton is back! On this week’s episode we discuss Clinton’s newest role as Chancellor of Queen’s University - Phelim’s alma mater! It’s her latest attempt to stay relevant in an increasingly radical Democratic Party.
Also, presidential candidate Cory Booker recently shared his “New Year’s Resolutions” with Pod Save America - we watched the episode so you don’t have to! Spoiler alert: Booker’s “resolutions” sound a lot like virtue signalling. We also discuss Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan who took to Twitter this week to express sympathy and empathy for Iran over the killing of radical terrorist Qasem Soleimani.
Lastly - Ann shares her great recipe for baked brie!

It’s been a busy week at the Unreported Story Society. Phelim talks about his recent run in with the Los Angeles “homeless” population and how he managed to stop a thief escape with a very expensive piece of property in Santa Monica -- and we have it all on video. On this first episode of 2020, we also look back to the past year and discuss our “best of” lists and the moments we’d most like to remember (or forget!) from 2019. Last year, Hollywood released some wonderful (and not-so-wonderful) films. Our favorite is Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. And did you hear that a Canadian broadcast company edited Donald Trump out of the Christmas movie Home Alone? They claim there was an innocent explanation but Phelim and Ann are skeptical.

In the final chapter of the report Inspector General Michael Horowitz's makes his recommendations to prevent a reoccurrence of the FBI misconduct that was uncovered in the Crossfire Hurricane/Russia investigation. If you've listened to this report with us, you'll see how Crossfire Hurricane was an unprecedented and apparently politically motivated investigation that violated the rights of private citizens. It also revealed how the FBI infiltrated a political campaign during an election as senior FBI agents wrote about stopping a candidate from being elected. Do Horowitz's recommendations have the teeth needed to prevent a repeat of what happened? Even the Inspector General admits that, "current Department and FBI policies are not sufficient to ensure appropriate oversight and accountability. . ."
Thank you for listening to the Inspector General's Report narrated by Adam Baldwin. It has been a pleasure bringing this important report to life and The Unreported Story Society will have more projects like this in the future. Please stick around for our weekly podcast The Ann & Phelim Scoop which comes out every Wednesday. Hosts Ann McElhinney & Phelim McAleer discuss politics, culture, art, and more! If you enjoyed this project, you can donate to the Unreported Story Society at TheUnreportedStorySociety.com.
This is the most compelling chapter. It lays out in shocking detail all the malfeasance of the Deep State. Learn what the Inspector General thinks about Christopher Steele's relationship with the FBI, the 17 "errors and omissions" in the FISA application, Bruce Ohr's conflicts of interest, and the use of undercover agents in the "Russia collusion" investigation. You cannot read this chapter without coming to the conclusion that this was a political investigation. However, the Inspector General takes a much weaker approach. Is he correct? Tune in now!
In Chapter 10, we learn about the FBI's use of Confidential Human Sources (CHSs). The report found that, while the Crossfire Hurricane team did not place any CHSs or UCEs (Undercover Employees) in the Trump 2016 campaign, several of their CHSs and UCEs frequently interacted with three Trump campaign officials, allowing them to penetrate and monitor a political campaign. Also, we find out that the Supervisory Special Agent (SSA 1) in charge of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation gave an FBI briefing to candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton during the campaign cycle without disclosing his position within the investigation. He used the briefing as an intelligence gathering exercise on the candidate Trump and the Trump campaign.
We dive deeper into the shocking IG report and discuss some of the bombshell revelations within the document. You won’t believe what it reveals about the conduct of the FBI and the bogus “Russia Collusion” investigation. Also, we discuss the latest Clint Eastwood film, Richard Jewell and the important parallels that exist between it and the nature of our politics today. Believe us, this is a film you need to see - and bring a friend! Additionally, we cover the huge election results from the UK and the continued successes for Prime Minister Boris Johnson. It may come as a surprise to many of you, but Michael Bloomberg is running for president! We discuss his soon-to-be failed presidential run and reveal an incredible story about the former New York City major that recently resurfaced. We also bring a very special Christmas-themed version of the “Crazy California” segment and a recipe for a delicious, and easy, sheet pan berry crumble. We’re very grateful to all of you who have supported us so far, we are so happy to be able to bring you The Ann & Phelim Scoop each week.

In Chapter 9 we learn how Bruce Ohr a former Associate Deputy Attorney General at the Department of Justice maintained secret communications with Christopher Steele after Steele was fired as an FBI source. We also learn that Ohr's wife worked for Fusion GPS who commissioned Christopher Steele to create the Steele Dossier which contained the fake information that allowed the FBI to monitor and secretly record members of the Trump election team during the campaign. It is also revealed that Bruce Ohr also had an an ongoing relationship with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. According to Steele, he and Ohr also discussed Steele's concerns about a potential Trump victory. Chapter 9 also reveals how Ohr downplayed his connections with Steele when he was talking to Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General - who said he was "shocked" when the full details emerged.
Chapter 8 reveals that the Inspector General found 17 "omissions and errors" made by the FBI as they applied for FISA warrants to wiretap and monitor Trump campaign worker Carter Page. The FBI's "errors" even included fraudulently altering documents! Additionally, this chapter reveals additional holes in the Steele Dossier. In fact, FBI interviews with Steele and his sources showed serious discrepancies between his reporting and the statements of his sources but these discrepancies were hidden from the FISA court. Don't miss this pivotal chapter of the Inspector General's Report!
After the first application for a FISA warrant before the 2016 election, the FBI applied three times for a renewal of the warrant that allowed them to wiretap and monitor Trump campaign worker Carter Page. Throughout the process, the FBI made over seventeen errors, mistakes, and omissions. What is so incredible about this entire process is the FBI's willingness to push for the renewals even though the IG report found they were "inaccurate, incomplete and unsupported by appropriate documentation." Also the FBI withheld evidence that would have shown Carter Page was innocent. These applications allowed the FBI to spy on Trump campaign staff and the Trump campaign. Had the applications been filled out honestly and correctly, it is likely that the FBI would have never been granted the ability to carry out this surveillance.
In this chapter, we learn that Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous "Steele Dossier," was fired as a source by the FBI because he leaked his bogus anti-Trump reports to the ultra-left Mother Jones. We see how the Steele Dossier was elevated to the highest levels in the FBI and how senior FBI agents found his reporting was not corroborated but failed to pass the information to the FISA court when seeking warrants to surveil Trump campaign workers. We hear how the FBI learned Steele misrepresented what his sources told him and about verification of the salacious stories. However the FBI also failed to tell the FISA court this important information when using the dossiers for applying for a renewal of the FISA applications.
In this chapter we learn how the infamous "Steele Dossier" was used to apply for a FISA warrant to investigate Trump campaign worker Carter Page. In earlier chapters we learned that the Steele Dossier was a politically motivated report funded by the Democratic Party and contained second hand unverified information. Chapter five reveals the first FISA application was "inaccurate, incomplete" and filled with "undocumented" information. This deception meant the FISA application was granted and allowed the FBI to spy on Carter Page and the Trump campaign before the election.
This chapter examines the FBI's relationship with Christopher Steele. Steele is the author of the infamous "Steele Dossier" the FBI used to get the warrants to monitor and secretly record Trump campaign workers and the Trump campaign. He was hired by the Democratic Party through the firm Fusion GPS. Chapter 4 reveals how Steele told the Inspector General it was created by "single source" reporting and "uncorroborated intelligence." Steele also tells the Office of the Inspector General that the ultimate client of the report was the Clinton presidential campaign and that Hillary Clinton was aware of the project. We hope you enjoy the 4th chapter of this important report.
Chapter 3 is one of the chapters that the mainstream media doesn't want you to know about. You'll learn how in a breach of regulations the Trump investigation was opened by anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok who pledged to prevent a Trump victory. You'll also learn how the Obama White House knew about the investigation of a political rival - were they directing it? Additionally find out how the FBI covered up the political motivations of Christopher Steele when using his dossier as a cover to get warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. It is truly shocking what went on behind closed doors at the FBI.
We discuss the insane revelation that FISA warrants were issued, allowing the US to spy on American citizens and that those warrants contained 17 errors or omissions, in other words, lies. If you or I did this with our insurance application or say our IRS statement we’d most likely end up in jail. Also, we discuss how Hollywood has decided to resurrect the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) as its next battle and is using Madam Secretary and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, to push their agenda. Both television shows repeated the very same lie about conservative giant Phyllis Schafly and her history of activism. We make sure to correct the record.
In the second chapter of the 2019 Inspector General's report we learn of the FBI's standards and safeguards and how they **should** have been applied when opening and conducting counterintelligence investigations. As later chapters reveal these standards were often ignored in the Trump/Russia investigation.
In fact, the FBI had 17 pieces of important information that they kept from the FISA court. Had they given the FISA court this information, it is likely they would have never been allowed to obtain the warrants that allowed them to monitor individuals in the Trump campaign.
What is the Inspector General’s report that is creating a buzz around Washington? Who is the “Deep State” and how did they attempt to undermine Trump by launching the Russia Collusion investigation? Was it warranted? Who was involved?
Ignore the mainstream media spin and decide for yourself. Welcome to the first episode and chapter of the 2019 Inspector General’s Report read by award-winning narrator and actor Adam Baldwin. Don't let the media tell you what to think about this pivotal report. Listen to the report on the go and make up your own mind!
This is the first chapter of the report that will be uploaded chapter by chapter. Stay tuned for the next installment tomorrow! Subscribe to the Ann & Phelim Scoop and share this episode with other truth seekers.
The Unreported Story Society is launching a new project to help expose the truth behind the fake Russian Collusion narrative that was concocted by DOJ and FBI operatives to take down President Trump. We discuss this incredibly exciting new project in a SPECIAL “Russia Collusion Hoax” episode of The Ann & Phelim Scoop with Mollie Hemingway.
Mollie is an incredibly brilliant writer and journalist and she is a senior editor at The Federalist. She’s one of the few true “experts” left in Washington, D.C. With Mollie we discuss the Kavanaugh hearings, the Russia Collusion Hoax, her new book Justice On Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation & The Future Of The Supreme Court, and our latest exciting project . . . On Monday, December 9th, the Inspector General will release a report that evaluates how operatives like Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, and James Comey may have violated government protocols to launch a fake investigation into the president. The report will give an inside look into the ‘Deep State’ and the allegations of spying.
Please sign up at HearTheIGReport.com to get the first episode as soon as it comes out! You won't want to miss this!
We discuss the latest in the “FBI Lovebirds” saga. Just this week, The Daily Beast published a glowing interview with disgraced FBI attorney Lisa Page in which she played the “victim-card” and claimed she is not guilty of any wrongdoing at all. The mainstream media was more than happy to spread this falsehood and repeat the lie that the Investigator General’s report “cleared” Page and Peter Strzok of any wrongdoing. On this week’s podcast, we tell you the real story. And nobody knows the story better than us. We are the only people who have actually read all the texts between her and her lover Peter Strzok while preparing for FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers.
Also, we bring you a crazy story in the Los Angeles Times that shows how much damage powerful West Coast unions can have on job creation and employment. It’s an absurd tale and we give you every single detail.
We have some incredible projects and interviews coming up and we need your help! We’re grateful to all of you who have supported us so far and are so happy to be able to bring you The Ann & Phelim Scoop each week.
We’re very excited to be joined by the wonderful Dennis Prager for a very special Thanksgiving themed episode. Dennis discusses his Thanksgiving traditions and the importance of practicing gratitude year-round. Listen to find out why he believes gratitude is the key to happiness.
Also, we talk about Dennis’ experiences living in the Soviet Union as a young man and what it taught him about the importance of freedom. He also shares with us how PragerU developed and the impact it has had on young people worldwide. We also hear how he first went to a sleep-away camp for eight weeks at age five where he experienced some of its rather unusual “monitoring” activities. We also remember how we first met Dennis when he interviewed us about our documentary FrackNation and how we became instant friends. We thank him for his constant support for all our projects from our verbatim play Ferguson to the movie and book Gosnell.
Also, Dennis shares some pieces of wisdom from his books, lectures, and videos on topics like gratitude, happiness, and freedom. We wrap up the episode hearing about Dennis’ issues with home cooking and his eternal love of music.
We hope you and your family and friends have a safe and happy Thanksgiving tomorrow! Stay tuned for next week’s episode of the Scoop. Thanks for tuning in!
We have an exclusive interview with a very special guest: David Daleiden! Over the last several weeks, we’ve kept you updated on David’s court battle with Planned Parenthood in San Francisco. In a chilling attack on journalism, the judge presiding over the case ordered David and his team to pay nearly $2 million! David tells us what has motivated him to expose the truth and why he will keep fighting.
We also cover the latest from the impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill. Over the last several days, Democrats have continued to reveal that these proceedings are nothing more than a circus - a very boring circus.
Also, we discuss the latest news out of “Crazy California,” where the Trump administration intends to crack down on the state’s homelessness epidemic and how the Nextdoor App seems to have Trump Derangement Syndrome on the issue. Finally, we wrap up by sharing the best way to make Irish Coffee -- if you haven’t tried it yet, you won’t want to miss this!
Stay tuned for next week’s episode of the Scoop. Thanks for tuning in!
We’re joined by Jan Jekielek of The Epoch Times, a publication that has long covered independent journalism. Their coverage of FBI Lovebirds: UnderCovers and Gosnell is must-read commentary.
On the podcast, Jan discusses the long history of The Epoch Times as well as a recent attempt by NBC to smear the publication. We also briefly discuss Michael Bloomberg’s (likely doomed) entrance into the Democratic presidential race.
Earlier this week, we attended the Los Angeles premiere of Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager’s film, No Safe Spaces. We discuss the importance of the film as well as the latest craziness from college campuses. Finally, our red carpet interviews are MUST WATCH. Tune in to hear commentary from Dennis Prager, Ben Shapiro, and more!
We battle Scaredy Cat and Top Cat at their most energetic to discuss the Epstein/ABC “coverup,” David Daleiden’s ongoing court battle against Planned Parenthood, the Exxon “Climate Trial,” and much more. Scaredy and Top obviously missed us and wanted to make up for us being in Ireland/UK for two weeks.
In the podcast we update you on our time in the UK and how Brexit never happened and why Boris Johnson is turning out to be a disappointment to many. We have the latest update from David Daleiden vs Planned Parenthood trial in San Francisco. In court, David revealed why he is proud of the work he did with the Center for Medical Progress’ undercover investigation. Tune in to hear our full discussion on his response.
Also, on Tuesday, Project Veritas released yet another bombshell video. Their video exposes how ABC refused to cover the Jeffrey Epstein story despite having interviewed his victims. According to ABC anchor Amy Robach, it was pressure from the Clinton’s and the British Royal family which stopped the allegations from being broadcast.
On the podcast, Phelim also reveals EXCLUSIVE video from the so-called ExxonMobile “Climate Trial.” Environmental activists proclaim that Exxon knew they were “destroying the planet” but chose to continue in the pursuit of profit. In actuality, this isn’t much of a “climate trial” at all - it’s a nothingburger. We discuss at length.
This week’s episode comes to you from across the pond! In London, we’re joined by a fabulous panel of guests to discuss the latest with Brexit and the Establishment’s attempts to kill it.
If you’re unfamiliar with Brexit and the negotiations that have happened over the past three years, what you’ll find so remarkable is the similarities between the Establishment in Britain and in America.
In America, the Establishment has been trying to undermine President Trump since he was elected. They call Trump supporters, “ignorant” and “racist.” In Britain, the Establishment elite meets Brexit supporters with the same name calling and nastiness. Both groups deny the results of two perfectly legitimate elections and our guests explain how that mindset is incredibly dangerous to the future of democracy.
The “Brexit” panel includes three fantastic guests including Member of European Parliament and Director of The Academy of Ideas Claire Fox, Breitbart’s James Delingpole, and Irish writer John Waters.
We also cover “Brexit Derangement Syndrome” and the Establishment’s dangerous attempts to stall the British exit from the European Union. We compare the European “Brexit backlash” and the reaction of the American political class (The Swamp) to Donald Trump’s election in 2016. If you’re new to Brexit or an expert on the issue -- this is a great and lively conversation for all to enjoy.
We're joined by the wonderful Elisha Krauss of The Daily Wire. We discuss parental rights, school choice, Trump, and the future of Roe v. Wade. Phelim also provides an update about his trip to report on the David Daleiden case in San Francisco. Ann shares a brief recap of her speech at Oklahoma State University and we discuss the increasingly leftward tilt of college campuses around the country.
Phelim has been in San Francisco covering David Daleiden’s court battle against Planned Parenthood and Phelim also interviewed (or attempted to interview) two Planned Parenthood executives in San Francisco. On the podcast, we share the exclusive videos of both interactions and their reactions to Phelim’s tough questions.
Additionally, Ann discusses her recent speech at Oklahoma State University, sponsored by Young America’s Foundation. In the days leading up to the event, OSU students vandalized all the posters advertising the lectures. Watch the latest episode to find out how the event turned out!
And this week, Phelim looks back at a frightening encounter he and Magda had with protesters at Standing Rock. At one point, these climate radicals barricade them in their car! You have to hear this incredible story.
We are joined by Kristy Swanson! Kristy is the incredible actress who played Lisa Page in Phelim's play FBI Lovebirds which was released on YouTube this Monday. You may know Kristy from her roles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Pretty In Pink, Big Daddy, Psych, and Ferris Bueller's Day Off. In the past few years, Kristy has been one of the most outspoken conservatives and Trump supporters in Hollywood. She discuses this experience with Ann & Phelim as well as what it was like to star in FBI Lovebirds live with Dean Cain.
We also discuss the latest in David Daleiden’s court battle against Planned Parenthood and why the case really is about abortion, even thought the mainstream media and the court would have you believe otherwise. Have you heard about Samuel Little? Some in the media argue that he’s the “most prolific serial killer in U.S. history.” We beg to disagree - abortionist Kermit Gosnell takes the top prize.
Politico called it, "The Hamilton" for the "MAGA Crowd." Vice News called it "dangerous!" Starring Dean Cain and Kristy Swanson as Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and written by Phelim McAleer, FBI Lovebirds takes a hilarious spin on the shocking text messages the captivated the country.
The play exposes how two reckless FBI agents tried to destroy President Trump's campaign by pushing the false Russia Collusion narrative. Using exact text and words from Page and Stzork -- the play highlights the reckless and calculated behavior behind two of Trump's enemies.
Can you believe that the FBI agent who started the Trump-Russia investigation wrote in a hate-filled text that he walked into a Walmart in Southern Virginia and could, “smell the Trump supporters?”
Can you also believe Strzok said it was time to start the Russia investigation/hoax as an “insurance policy” in case Trump won the election?
Believe it -- because it's all true!
Dean Cain: “This is me playing Peter Strzok as written by Peter Strzok. So often, truth is stranger than fiction, and this “truth” is Peter, in his own words.”
Please enjoy this special bonus episode of The Ann & Phelim Scoop. If you'd like to watch the play in full, you can do so at FBILovebirdsMovie.com.
We discuss the latest top news stories including Planned Parenthood’s “secret weapon” in Hollywood, a devastating report from the New York Times, and yet another “hate crime hoax.”
We also return to the topic of 16-year-old “activist” Greta Thurnberg and her recent meeting with Arnold Schwarzenegger. More climate change hypocrisy? You bet.
Additionally, we covered the latest news from “Crazy California.” It seems the LAPD has found time to launch an investigation into how a recruitment ad that appeared on Breitbart yet has still done little to address the state’s “homeless crisis.”
We are joined by the incredible author and commentator Mark Steyn! Our dear friend Mark invited us on the second annual Mark Steyn Cruise earlier this month, which made its way from Vancouver to Alaska. It was a wonderful experience. While on the ship, we filmed a very special live podcast episode that we’re excited to share with you.
We met Mark “virtually” in February 2007 when he wrote kindly about our documentary Mine Your Own Business in the Orange County Register. We finally met in person in Washington, D.C. a few years later and we share the hilarious story of our first meeting on this week’s podcast episode.
Mark also discussed his frequent appearances and commentary on the Rush Limbaugh Show and his gave his opinions on American politics, including his suggestion that we never become “emotionally invested” in politicians.
On episode #8, we also discussed the latest Brexit and UK news and Mark shared his thoughts on the newest British Prime Minister and his former colleague on the Spectator magazine, Boris Johnson. We learn the very interesting reason Boris was late for one of the very famous and very boozy Spectator lunches. We covered “Brexit Derangement Syndrome” and how it compares to “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” Mark also talked about what he finds most “refreshing” about President Donald Trump.
We are joined by two very special guests and dear friends: Alan and Lisa Robertson! You may know Alan as the “beardless” Robertson brother who first appeared in season 4 of the television program, Duck Dynasty. He is also a pastor who has written extensively on issues of faith, marriage, and forgiveness. Alan and Lisa have written several books, including their latest, Desperate Forgiveness.
We asked the questions “what is forgiveness” and, perhaps more importantly, “what is it not?” Tune in to the full podcast to hear the Robertsons’ answers. Alan and Lisa also covered additional topics like marriage, faith, and family and shared their advice for mending broken relationships. Lisa also shared her love of the short-running “Duck Commander Musical” and a delicious recipe for pecan chicken
We are joined by a very special guest: British journalist and commentator Katie Hopkins! We’re so very excited to share this interview with one of the most important truth-tellers in the UK, one who draws comparisons between how the elites in the US and UK are trying to overthrow democratic decisions of the people.

Falling Inn Love
We bring you the exciting news that the Climate Crisis has been solved! At least it seems to be solved according to former First Couple Barack and Michelle Obama. The pair recently bought a 6,900 square foot mansion in Martha’s Vineyard with beach access. No sign of rising sea-levels there. Also, the Marriott Hotel chain’s “green choice program” recently faced some backlash from labor unions as it finally has affected activists. The rich can afford the green indulgences but it is the poor that suffer the most.
In our latest “Crazy California” segment we update the world on the so-called homeless crisis on the West Coast and how Los Angeles just seems to want to encourage it. Then we look behind the scenes at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Arizona where a former employee was awarded $3 million dollars in damages for wrongful termination after she raised safety concerns that were endangering women’s health.
This week’s movie review is box office hit Angel Has Fallen - a not so secret pro-Trump film - a fact that mainstream critics seem to have missed.

We discuss sixteen-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg's latest venture and other news from the radical environmental left.

The five year anniversary of the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri just passed. Phelim discussed his FERGUSON verbatim play, which premiered in Los Angeles and New York in 2015 and 2017 and consists of word-for-word dialogue from grand jury testimony.
