Ep 29: Trump vs. Biden II
Trump was better. The moderator was way better. Catch my take on the final presidential debate on today’s episode.
October 26, 2020
Ep 28: Fauci the Fraud
The rift is growing between Trump and Fauci. In this episode, we expose Fauci for what he is - a power hungry narcissist. Believe it or not, there are *gasp* real doctors and real science that disagrees with him, even if the mainstream media won't allow that out. This episode certainly won't please the lockdowners and Covid Karens. home twitter

Ep 27: The Law Perverted!
If I had to credit one individual for shaping my political philosophy it would have to be Frederic Bastiat. The 19th Century French economist, legislator, and writer championed private property, free markets, and limited government in practical ways, easily consumed by the general public. In today's episode, I highlight some of his biggest contributions, if only modern politicians would heed his advice today! website twitter

Ep 26: A League of Her Own - The Amy Coney Barrett Hearings
ACB's confirmation hearings were a bunch of political theater, but there's still alot of insight as to how the minds of many American politicians think. The Left is up in arms over the potential threat to all of their unconstitutional legislation. I was very impressed with ACB's demeanor, intelligence, and understanding of the proper role of the judiciary. find out more my twitter

Ep 25: The 25th Amendment & Constitutional Crisis
There's been a lot of talk lately regarding the 25th Amendment,  especially from Nancy Pelosi. Convenient, considering she's third in line for the Presidency. Today, we unpack the history behind the 25th  Amendment and set the record straight on how it plays out when invoked. The hub for everything we're doing: My twitter Rod's twitter

Ep 24: Columbus: The non-PC version
Monday was Christopher Columbus Day, or at least it used to be, until the woke, outrage mob decided he could no longer be tolerated. The fact is, Columbus is a hero, and destroying his legacy is part of the Left's bigger assault on Western civilization. Today we're going to do the man justice by giving the non-PC, non-cartoon caricature version of him. where you can find all of our links my twitter profile

Ep 23: VP Debate
I suffered through the Vice Presidential debate so you didn't have to. In today's episode I give my thoughts on it and also set the record straight on Kamala's stupid ahistorical comments about Lincoln's SCOTUS nomination. my twitter

Ep 22: Enough Fact Free Hysteria
Don't you dare question the "science!" But today we conclude COVID week  with some science of our own, showing how short-sighted these tyrants really are. The problem is, they only look at what they “see” and not all of the negative consequences of the shutdowns. They also ignore the fact that most of those effected already have medical issues. If you're tired of the fact free nonsense, today we arm you with the truth, as we bury the lockdown argument. website link twitter link

Ep 21: Dismantling the COVID Karens
The Covid Karens think shutting things down will save us, showing how economically ignorant they truly are. In reality, keeping things open is the best way to fight the virus.    We continue COVID week In today’s episode, making the case for freedom using an article I wrote all the way back in April, inspired by Leonard Read’s “I, Pencil.” twitter

Ep 20: Whitmer Loses in Court
After five months of an illegal power grab, The Michigan Supreme Court ruled against Gov. Whitmer and her tyrannical executive orders - a great day for the cause of liberty! Today we discuss the decision, the oral arguments, and the responses in the aftermath as we kick off COVID week!

Ep 18: Debate Recap
The "debate" - if you want to call it that - was an absolute dumpster fire. I suffered through the entire thing to save you the misery. This episode gives you my take on it. follow on twitter

Ep 17: Amy Coney Barrett
The nomination of ACB has the left in yet another meltdown. In this episode, I weigh-in on her jurisprudence and predict what to expect from her on the Supreme Court. twitter

Ep 16: Government by Judiciary
We continue off of last episode and the legacy left by John Marshall, discussing how SCOTUS continued the precedent of usurping power, destroying federalism, and legislating from the bench. We talk about some of the worst decisions from the 20th & 21st Centuries that still have an impact today, and how most justices pull Constitutional "meanings" out of thin air to fit their policy preferences, as opposed to following their oath to uphold it.

Ep 15: Marshall Law
Justice Ginsburg passing has created outrage as well as excitement over  potentials to fill the vacancy - and rightfully so considering the  incredible power a SCOTUS Justice holds.    It makes you sit back and think, why is it that one individual holds so  much power in what is supposed to be a federal republic? The truth is  we're ruled by 5 oligarchs with no checks on their power. How did it  come to this? We owe a lot of credit to John Marshall for completely  re-writing the Constitution. In today's episode, we'll discuss  Marshall's "contributions" that are still effecting us today, and how  many who claim to be "originalists" really are way off when it comes to  the Constitution.
September 22, 2020
Ep 14: Del. Pat McGeehan
We're fortunate enough to have Pat McGeehan of the West Virginia House of Delegates on today!  We discuss political corruption, philosophy, Constitutionalism, the books he's authored, and some of the moves he's making to advance the cause of liberty. I'm you'll find what Pat has to say extremely insightful and interesting. twitter

Ep 13: National Review is Wrong: Repeal the 17th Amendment
Senator Ben Sasse wrote an op-Ed last week calling for the repeal of the 17th Amendment. The progressives were appalled at this “assault on democracy.” The Neocons dislike the idea as much as their counterparts on the left as an affront to their nationalized central government. Cue National Review coming to the 17th Amendment’s defense. In this episode Daren dismantles that piece line-by-line.
September 15, 2020
Ep 12: "Cuties" and Political Correctness
The Netflix show “Cuties” has rightfully drawn much criticism. In this episode, Daren explains how political correctness leads to outcomes like this. From drag queen story hour to biological men in women’s sports, PC culture is reshaping society and used as an Orwellian weapon to silence dissenters.

Ep 11: America’s First 9/11 Tragedy
Few are familiar with the first 9/11 tragedy - September 11, 1789.  Alexander Hamilton was appointed first Secretary of the Treasury.  Hamilton is glorified in popular culture and even has a hit Broadway  musical with his namesake; the truth is that Hamilton has done as much  damage to the United States than any other single figure.   Today we discuss his duplicity and the legacy we’re still dealing today.  If you like unlimited central authority, high taxes, central banking,  crony capitalism, and the military industrial complex - thank Hamilton!

Ep 10: If it weren't for labor unions, 10 year olds would be working 80 hour weeks in sweatshops
Every American grows up hearing the same old tale from the education system - labor laws and labor unions are to thank for weekends, the 40 hour work week, and so on. Life would be completely miserable without these heroes to save the day. In today's episode we give the other side they conveniently forget to tell - capital, not labor, is what has led to dramatically increased living standards.  We discuss how new deal legislation killed freedom of contract, Menger crushed Marx's Labor Theory of Value,  the legal pass to violence unions are granted, and much more!

Ep 9: Rittenhouse, Riots, and Property Rights
Recent events and all the destruction going on in the U.S. reminds us that property rights are the bedrock of civilization. With no mechanism for protecting property rights, however, they are meaningless - which is why the ability to own firearms is so important.
September 4, 2020
Ep 8: Republic, not Democracy
All I heard about at the DNC was how they were going to save our "democracy." In this episode we discuss how the founders never set up a direct democracy for us, and why democracy isn't everything its cracked up to be.

Ep 7: Pardon Snowden?
When President Trump said he would "take a look" at pardoning Edward Snowden, it sent the media into their usual hysteria. In today's episode Daren discusses Snowden's story, the shocking revelation, and the insane amount of courage it takes to be a true patriot.

Ep 6: Michigan Barber refuses to bow to Tyrannical Governor
The Owosso barber, Karl Manke, who had the courage to stand up to Gov. Whitmer's dracanion shutdown is a true patriot. We had the privilege of getting the chance to listen to his attorney, David Kallman, speak in my hometown of Hillsdale, Michigan. I was fortunate to have the honor of giving the opening remarks, then Stand Up Hillsdale Founder and President Joel Stewart speaks, after that David Kallman gives a discussion on work he's done to fight government overreach. Alot of good info on here that I think you'll enjoy!

Ep 5: The Spirit of '98
Today we're talking about Federalism, the Tenth Amendment, and how Nullification is one way we can fight back against Unconstitutional Federal Tyranny today! This episode takes us back to the Philly Convention, and proceeds through some landmark examples of Nullification in American History. 
August 19, 2020
Ep 4: The Constitution of No Authority
The USPS has made the headlines, so it’s only fitting that it’s the topic of today’s episode, meaning we get the chance to discuss Lysander Spooner - which is always fun!

Ep 3: The Neocons: Who they are and how they aren't really "conserving" anything.
Daren discusses the neconservatives. To do so he takes you back through a brief history of their movement, and why they can't stand those opposed to an interventionist foreign policy. He concludes with a discussion on the peace deal yesterday with Israel & UAE.
