120 - Big Big Decisions on Little Little Data
David Wiseman Ph.D., M.R.Pharm.S. and I had a FASCINATING talk about the healthcare industry and by the end of it, I was balled up in a fetal position and having trouble sleeping. And I am only slightly exaggerating. Here are only some of our talking points.  Alarming discrepancies in data connected to Hydrochloroquin and Ivermectin.   Decisions are based on data but, it would seem that in at least those instances, major health decisions are being made without enough information. Have you seen this happen at the CDC or the FDA? I've heard the CDC declare health advisory notices concerning vaccines. What exactly is that? Why is it significant? Do you think what is going on is an intentional nefarious scheme? Are medical journals giving pure peer-reviewed data when it comes to the Covid-19 vaccines? With only limited data available, does it seem like the public is part of some grand experiment? And, so much more. This conversation could have gone on for hours! I hope to have him back on the show soon. Tune in now! ABOUT MY GUEST Dr. Wiseman is a PhD Research scientist with a background in pharmacy, pharmacology and experimental pathology. He was one of the top 66 research scientists at Johnson & Johnson where he headed up a research program overseeing preclinical and clinical research as well as submissions to FDA. Since 1996 he has run his own R&D consulting business, helping companies develop medical products. He is a journal peer reviewer. He has dropped everything to work on Covid contributing important work on HCQ and IVM. Company website: http://synechion.com/index.html ...

117 - Why are Muslims Better at Converting Prison Inmates than Christians?
Today marks the return of one of my more controversial guests - IQ al Rassooli. In this episode we dive deeper into Islam and its compatibility with American culture. Among our many talking points were the following:  Why do you think Islam is the fastest growing "Cult" belief system on Earth?   Muslims are most successful in converting inmates to Islam than Christians. Guess why? The Muslim persecution of Christians worldwide is expanding Christians are not reproducing children at the same rate as Muslims The purpose of Islam is to dominate via Sharia These things that are not in the Quran!  Illegal immigrants are an offense to green card citizens Biden alone is turning America into a communist state!  And oh, so much more...  ... ABOUT MY GUEST IN HIS OWN WORDS IQ al Rassooli is a pen name to protect myself from being murdered for revealing the truth about Islam (the Cult of Muhammad). I was born in Baghdad Iraq, My mother tongue is Arabic.  My parents sent me to Europe to study where I was able to access libraries and get informed. I was intrigued to find out if the Biblical names and verses in Muhammad's Quran, corresponded with those in the Bible. I was utterly shocked to find out, not only did they not correspond but they are totally wrong, misleading, and uninformative. This launched me on a 30 years of research during which I had to study and absorb not only Muhammad's Quran but also the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament. By the time I finished, I had absolutely no doubt - based entirely on the Islamic sources - that Muhammad was a charlatan and a pathological liar and most important of all, that his god Allah is most definitely NOT the same as the God of Abraham, Moses and Jesus, thus instantly discrediting Muhammad as an alleged prophet as well as the impossibility of a divinely revealed Quran.

116 - Dr Li-Meng Yan is telling the truth about Covid-19
Today I was honored to speak with the courageous Dr. Li-Meng Yan about why she believes Covid-19 was a bioweapon and not a lab leak. She speaks with clarity and authority and I hope her crusade to get the truth out does not cost her more than it already has. Tune in NOW to hear what the mainstream media does not want you to hear and learn what other attacks may be coming next to America and the world. Some of the questions asked: Origins of Virus: People pretty much accepts that the virus came from a lab in Wuhan but its not really talked about as much now. Was it a bio-weapon as some people think? Was the lab that created the virus, operated by the military? Is the Wuhan lab the only lab in China developing bio-weapons? What are the chances that more bio-weapons like Covid-19 will be released in the near future? What kind of dangers could we be facing in the near future? (What viruses are being studied?) Conspiracy theory?: Are race specific bio-weapons possible? WHY? Why would China do all of this? Rumor has it the purpose is depopulation. What do you think of health officials who know the truth that this is a bio-weapon and choose to promote it as a natural disease? Accountability: How is China able to evade accountability for what they've done? Is the CCP running all the censorship surrounding the virus? There is a lot of misinformation circulating about the coronavirus, should we only trust peer reviewed studies? If not, why not? Why do you think the American government (and others) has not retaliated against China? Why are we not at war? Psychological Warfare: Several companies are mandating vaccines and as a result, many people are quitting their jobs in protest. Do you think this was anticipated by the CCP when they released the virus? What do you think of the vaccinated people who treat the unvaccinated people badly? More questions: Do you think Anthony Fauci has the best interest of the American people in mind? Do you think the World Health Organization is motivated by keeping the world healthy? How has your speaking out against all this evil affected your life? How has your family supported you? (Husband tried to turn you in?) I hear that Pfizer is coming out with a drug that is similar to Ivermectin. What are your thoughts on that? If someone has already been vaccinated against Covid, what are your thoughts about getting a flu shot? Have you been approached by the CDC, FDA and others for your expertise? ABOUT MY GUEST Dr. Li-Meng Yan is a PhD virologist, medical doctor, immunologist and independent coronavirus expert. She was educated at two top medical schools in China, Southern Medical University and Central South University. She was also Post-doctoral Fellow in the School of Public Health at the University of Hong Kong (HKU).  Because of her extensive professional network and scientific evidence, Dr. Yan has the distinction of being the only Chinese insider in the west with firsthand knowledge about the true nature of the virus as well as the Communist Chinese Party’s deceptive methods used to disguise their international bioweapons research. Her revelations since January 19, 2020 have forced the CCP to change its strategy on the origin of SARS2 and saved many lives as a result.  Twitter: https://twitter.com/DrLiMengYAN1

114 - How To Listen To and Understand The Other Side
Today, I spoke to Jihan Varsicco who publishes The Flipside, a political newsletter that presents left and right opinion on social and political issues. Some of the questions I asked him were: What is the Flipside? What was the inspiration behind it? Where is their true bipartisanship these days? Are we mostly divided on political lines or ideological lines? (I mean, everyone is not hard left and hard right.) What do you do with people who treat emotions as facts? Is the culture at The Flipside toxic with so many opposing views? How can we unite the country in such divisive times? What would you say is the country's most divisive issue right now? What are some of your most popular newsletter issues? And more... ABOUT MY GUEST Jihan is the co-founder and conservative editor of The Flip Side.

110 - Has the Left lost their collective minds? A chat with Jeff Charles
Today, Jeff Charles and I had a meeting of the minds to lament the left and make wacky predictions (well, I did anyway) about the future of Democrats, Republicans and the rest of the country.  These were our talking points: Wokeism is a religion.   Liberal privilege is real.  Nobody cancels culture like the left.  Impeaching Biden may sound good but, will it happen?  Would a Vice President Harris be worse? Despite the propaganda of the activist media, people still do not like VP Harris. Why?  Defund the police and replace them with federalized troops the elites control.  Its not Democrat vs Republicans, its a globalist Uni-party against us all.  Will 2022 be a political bloodbath for the Democrats?   Its so important to pay attention to the primary races!  If not Trump in 2024, who should be the Republican nominee? Who will be the next Democrat to run for President?  And so much more... ABOUT MY GUEST Contributor for RedState and LibertyNation. Co-Host of Red+Black Show and A Fresh Perspective Podcast.

#106 - What's wrong with giving pornography to children? Are you kidding me?!!
"What's wrong with giving pornography to children?" is a question that many educators pondered as parents raged against them at school board meetings. While I was sleeping, sex education devolved from explaining biological differences between genders to explicit lessons from the Kama Sutra. (And I'm only slightly exaggerating.) As shocking as this is, apparently, its been going on in our school systems for some time. I'm so glad that Karen Schoen was my guest because she explained to me this trend, its origins and what's likely to happen next.  Karen Schoen has the foresight and courage to do what so many on the right are afraid to; call the enemy out by name and boldly. Spoiler alert - its communism.  Other topics we discussed Federalized police forces coming to your city soon The purpose of the mask The only good thing about communism The psychological projections of the left The eerie similarities between modern America and Nazi, Germany  Government mobsters (badda-boom, badda-bing)  Whole word reading doesn't work for us.

#105 - The Entire Healthcare Industry and US Political System Wants to Destroy Steve LaTulippe (and other Doctors like him)
My conversation with Steve LaTulippe (pronounced "LAH-too-LEAP") sent chills down my spine. By practicing evidence-based medicine, he dared to rebel against the leftist narrative concerning Covid and saved lives in the process. This put him out of favor with medical boards and certain politicians whose devotion to tyranny outweighed their allegiance to personal freedoms. As a result, Steve LaTulippe's life has been turned upside down and his very livelihood is at stake. His response? Keep fighting and inspiring resistance to medical tyranny wherever it rears its ugly head. In this David vs Goliath story its Steve LaTulippe against the world. By faith, he will be just as victorious as King David was. Tune in for a very special episode that in retrospect, I should have added the theme to Rocky in the background. This guy is a fighter.  ABOUT MY GUEST Steve LaTulippe MD is a physician board certified in Family Medicine, a retired United States Air Force officer, and a Bible college and seminary trained (Christian doctrine and Bible interpretation) ordained minister. His medical practice includes full-spectrum family medicine, pain and addiction medicine. His military service includes flying the KC-135 Stratotanker and and RF-4C phantom, then later serving as Chief of Medicine in the Oregon Air National Guard. He also has a background in microbiology. He enjoys backcountry mountain flying and the great outdoors. He is currently fighting the battle of cancel culture in medicine, and he has published a book, Unity Without Compromise: A Biblical Basis for Christian Union, as an instrumental tool towards unifying potentially the greatest force on earth—the Christians. He recently has begun hosting a weekend radio show called Unity Without Compromise on America Out Loud Talk Radio, and he publishes weekly articles for America Out Loud.   www.americaoutloud.com — weekly articles  https://givebutter.com/fyy71h - Legal Defense fund  Twitter: @StevenLaTulippe  GETTR: @SLaTulippeMD  ...

#104 - Are Islam and Sharia law compatible with American culture?
Wow! Wow! A thousand times... Wow! I had one of the most unbelievable conversations today with IQ Rassooli about Islam, the Quran, and lesser known points about the Muslim faith. As I listened to IQ, I fact-checked him in real-time and was even more surprised to verify what he was sharing. Once the podcast was officially over, I asked even more questions and included them after the outro of the podcast, so listen to the very end to hear it all. This is a partial list of what we talked about.  Are Islam and sharia law compatible with American culture? Are Islam and sharia law tolerant of other religions? When Muslims claim Islam is a religion of peace and love, are they lying to the non-Muslim world? Is Islam in the process of swallowing Europe? Will Muslim immigrants assimilate?  What is an infidel and what should happen to them? The origins of racism in America spawned from African slavers?  And soooo much more... I said on the program that I would look for someone more qualified than myself to debate IQ on the issues he posed. (As you can hear from the podcast, I was totally ignorant of the items he shared.) Time will tell if anyone will take up the offer. In fact, for the last 12 years, IQ has had over $1,500,000 worth of challenges to any Muslim who can prove him either wrong or untrue. So far, no takers and no Muslim willing to debate him. Once again, wow.  ABOUT MY GUEST IN HIS OWN WORDS IQ al Rassooli is a pen name to protect myself from being murdered for revealing the truth about Islam (the Cult of Muhammad). I was born in Baghdad Iraq, My mother tongue is Arabic.  My parents sent me to Europe to study where I was able to access libraries and get informed. I was intrigued to find out if the Biblical names and verses in Muhammad's Quran, corresponded with those in the Bible. I was utterly shocked to find out, not only did they not correspond but they are totally wrong, misleading, and uninformative. This launched me on a 30 years of research during which I had to study and absorb not only Muhammad's Quran but also the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament. By the time I finished, I had absolutely no doubt - based entirely on the Islamic sources - that Muhammad was a charlatan and a pathological liar and most important of all, that his god Allah is most definitely NOT the same as the God of Abraham, Moses and Jesus, thus instantly discrediting Muhammad as an alleged prophet as well as the impossibility of a divinely revealed Quran.   Follow IQ online at: Web: www.alrassooli.com Blog: https://www.americaoutloud.com/author/iq-al-rassooli/ Book: “Lifting the Veil, Volume III: The True Faces of Muhammad & Islam by Al Rassooli I.Q.” https://buff.ly/2Xv30fF Related reading: 10 Questions about the Compatibility of Islam with America https://buff.ly/2AXhXcn  20 FACTS ABOUT ISLAM EVERY INFIDEL SHOULD KNOW https://buff.ly/3kcwGqo

(Spoiler alert: Its all about money and power) If the system is racist, who runs it?  What it means to be called an "Uncle Tom" and why its not a bad thing. Annnd... "The 20 Negro Rule..." Wow!

#102 - Can My Employer Mandate that I Get the Vaccine or Threaten Me With Termination?
In a blatant exercise of government overreach, President Biden decrees new vaccine mandates for 100 million Americans. Can he legally do that? My guest - Dr. Henry Ealy says, "no" and backs that up with legal precedent and suggestions on how to resist the dictate. Other topics we discussed: Despite what the mainstream media (Or President Biden) says, the FDA has not fully approved any vaccines. The difference between religious "exemption" and religious "exception." Don't fall for the okie doke! Freedom means you have the right to permit or deny what goes in your body. (it is after all, your choice.)  In the UK, taxes are going up because of Covid. Watch it happen worldwide. If Covid-19 is still an emergency situation then, why is the southern border wide open?  What would happen if we focused on nutrition, proven medicines that have been around for decades and data from peer-reviewed studies with very large groups of test subjects, instead of the recent vaccine promotions? And soooo much more! Do yourself a favor and LISTEN to information that may change your paradigm and health forever. For additional study, check out this content from Dr. Ealy: # COVID-19 – What You’re Not Being Told Could Save Your Life https://buff.ly/3tupcSu # COVID-19: Empirical Evidence For Preventative Strategies https://buff.ly/3yRSifI ABOUT MY GUEST Dr. Henry Ealy has been exposing rampant acts of willful misconduct by elected and appointed officials daily since March 12, 2020. He is the lead author on 2 peer-reviewed manuscripts COVID-19 Data Collection, Comorbidity & Federal Law: A Historical Retrospective , and COVID-19: Restoring Public Trust During A Global Health Crisis that detail the rampant acts of willful misconduct by investigating the CDC’s data manipulation of death certificates and case definitions as well as presenting evidence-based scientific research everyone should be aware of.

MORE ABOUT MY GUEST The humble beginnings of Gary Revel doesn't prepare one for the fascinating, and for most, unbelievable adventures his life has endured.

I blame the school system and the media but, mostly the schools.
Derek O'Shea and I were looking at the landscape of neoliberalism and wondering to ourselves, "What is going on?!" After evaluating recent news stories involving racism, conservative persecution, critical race theory and liberal hypocrisy, we decided to blame the school system. We also blamed the media. Actually, we blame the media for a lot of it. However, our focus tended to hover around the school system and what kids are learning and the real-life consequences of indoctrination of cultural marxism. I'm so glad I do not have any kids in public school these days! Tune in to hear a long chat that will make you think, especially if you have children in grade school and you worry about their future in America.  ABOUT MY GUEST Politically Homeless Daily Comedy News Show (Conservative, Libertarian, with some tiny sprinkles of Liberal thrown in), Cultural Breakdowns, Interviews, and MORE!

The Browning of America with Donald Wayne
Census data suggests that in the near future, whites will no longer be the American majority. In this episode, Jim Stroud speculates the significance of this development with podcast guest - Donald Wayne. The conversation flows effortlessly as the modern culture is dissected and debated on several fronts. Among them: the alarming increase of anti-white racism, black appeals for segregation and (ironically) defending America as a non-racist country. The conversation later shifts to address medical tyranny, the dissolution of academic standards, Universal Basic Income, the nobility of work and everything else I forgot to mention.  The chat could have been had on a country porch, in the cool of the day with beers in hand. It was that kind of vibe and I liked it. I think you will too. Tune in to see what I mean.  ABOUT MY GUEST Donald Wayne is the co-host of Trice Talk, a podcast that focuses on topics that dominate the news as well as some stories that are often ignored by “mainstream” outlets. Trice Talk, while treating serious issues in a respectful manner is known for their humorous takes on the absurd.   Podcast: https://tricetalk2.podbean.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/TriceTalkwGMoon STAY CONNECTED WITH JIM STROUD Subscribe to Jim Stroud's daily updates here: https://sendfox.com/jimstroud      Read the archives of Jim Stroud's content here: https://blog.jimstroud.com/archives/     Download Jim Stroud's free ebook here: Racism Reimagined: How Critical Race Theory Imperils the American Workplace: https://www.tradepub.com/free/w_jims01/

Whatever happened to critical thinking?
Today, I had a chat with Cason Pratt and why so many people seem hypnotized by the mainstream media. Whatever happened to critical thinking? Cason and I discuss several news stories and the suspension of disbelief that must occur to accept them as given facts.  ABOUT MY GUEST  "I grew up in Japan as a missionary kid but have lived mainly in Ohio and now live in the Columbus area with my wife and three children. I've always been a thinker and continually questioned things, but my deeper journey into exposing deception began in 2005 after my first child was born. I realized that I owe it to those I am responsible for to know the truth and not just simply believe what I am told. My research has uncovered so much deception I felt I needed an outlet for it, thus my podcast Awake the Iron was born."

China is not our friend.
Today's podcast was almost an hour long and could have been much longer. Yes, it was that good. Today, I spoke with my new pal - Marcel Grzanna about China and how (in my view) they are not a friend to America. To be clear, I am discussing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leadership and not the people of China who suffer under their dictatorship. Anyways, topics that Marcel and I explored were China's influence over America, China's deplorable record on human right abuses, China's social credit score, the persecution of underground christian churches, how the Chinese view President Donald Trump and why Hollywood bows down to China (and who will be next).  ABOUT MY GUEST Marcel is a German journalist based in Cologne who used to live in China for nine years. In his recent book "Eine Gesellschaft in Unfreiheit" he speaks about his fascinating experiences as a field reporter in the world's biggest surveillance state and puts them into perspective for readers with no knowledge about China.

Wow! Wow! Wow! My guest Kevin McGary brought some new information to my attention concerning Black Lives Matter that I am still reeling from. (Again, wow.)

Are Blacks in America oppressed or simply ungrateful?
Eric Hohol and I had a meeting of the minds today and wow, was it good. We both were ranting on a myriad of topics that could have resulted in a 3-hour podcast easily. We pondered what the left truly truly wants from black people. We looked at Nigerians in America and speculated why they were better off economically than the Blacks born in America. We took a look back at slaves in America who went on to become millionaires and what they might think of Blacks today. We discussed Eric's decision to vote for Trump and how it encouraged him to leave the left side for good. Ultimately, we boiled down the essence of leftist verses conservative worldviews and asked, are black people truly oppressed in America or simply, ungrateful. This episode will raise a lot of eyebrows. DO NOT miss it. Listen to it NOW! ABOUT MY GUEST Eric Hohol started FreemindsPodcast because he was able to see the manipulation of the media, while many cannot. This is his attempt at spreading media literacy, and skepticism for all mainstream media sources, while educating people about the Marxist machine that has taken hold of our institutions.    Please check out Free MindsPodcast on:  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/freemindspodcast/id1537218809?uo=4 https://www.breaker.audio/freemindspodcast-1 https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy8zZTIwMzI5Yy9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw== https://open.spotify.com/show/5msJxhhiBVpdmm0C8wSSr3 STAY CONNECTED WITH JIM STROUD Subscribe to Jim Stroud's daily updates here: https://sendfox.com/jimstroud      Read the archives of Jim Stroud's content here: https://blog.jimstroud.com/archives/     Download Jim Stroud's free ebook here: Racism Reimagined: How Critical Race Theory Imperils the American Workplace: https://www.tradepub.com/free/w_jims01/

The Corporate Wokeplace with Stephanie Kaplan
What do you do when "Woke" culture is forced up on you at work? One thing you might do is fight back like Stephanie Kaplan. She is the founder and voice behind Corporate Wokeplace, a website dedicated to fighting the encroaching Woke culture on the American workplace. In this episode, Jim Stroud and Stephanie Kaplan discuss lowering standards to achieve equity, skin color as a job qualifier and how companies who get woke ultimately go broke. Oh, yes, we went there. Tune in for a very though-provoking episode. ABOUT MY GUEST  Stephanie Kaplan has worked in Corporate Human Resources leadership for  over 25 years. Her experience is primarily in Fortune 100 companies,  such as Starbucks, Walgreens and Target. Over the course of her career, she noticed a steady increase in  Corporate “Wokeism.” Concepts such as Corporate Social Responsibility  started out with good intentions but then became tools of the social  justice warriors. Diversity training, that once had the goal to include  all voices, now has morphed into segregation and shaming of white  people. Employee Resource Groups, initially designed as an opportunity  for racial groups to share their culture with others, have now become  combative and discriminatory. Stephanie founded Corporate Wokeplace as a  way to fight back against the insanity in Corporate America.  Website: https://corporatewokeplace.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/wokeplace STAY CONNECTED WITH JIM STROUD Subscribe to Jim Stroud's daily updates here: https://sendfox.com/jimstroud      Read the archives of Jim Stroud's content here: https://blog.jimstroud.com/archives/     Download Jim Stroud's free ebook here: Racism Reimagined: How Critical Race Theory Imperils the American Workplace: https://www.tradepub.com/free/w_jims01/

How To Be Gay and Conservative with Lady MAGA
Truly, truly, truly you cannot judge a book by its cover! I had a long and interesting conversation with the drag artist - Lady MAGA. I walked away thinking that I met a truly courageous person. It is challenging enough to come out as gay but, to complement that by also identifying as a Conservative? Wow. We talked at length about the societal and economic impact of his decision to leave the left, patriotism, big tech censorship and the attacks on the freedoms we take for granted in America. Such a positive person despite the tragedies in his life. #Impressed Lady MAGA is one strong soul. Tune in to hear what I mean.  ABOUT MY GUEST Ryan Woods, AKA Lady MAGA USA, is a proud Eagle Scout, America-first  Republican, Christian, and political activist. He’s an award-winning  journalist with a background in mass communication and video production.  He’s President of Log Cabin Republicans Utah and is working to save his  state from a leftist takeover. He uses drag artistry to defy the  radical LGBTQIA+ movement which pushes a dangerous agenda such as  hormone injections for children, “drag kids,” sexually explicit “Pride  Parades” and overt persecution of traditional families and religious  Conservatives. His artistry is meant to be fun, uplifting, and  inspiring—not vulgar or degrading, as is the case with most mainstream  “Drag Queens.”  Lady Maga USA hosts a weekly podcast, creates online content, organizes  events, fights for Conservative legislation, writes articles and more.

What is woke culture doing to our children?
I just had a delightful conversation with children's author - Bracha Goetz. in our conversation we discussed her liberal upbringing and the events that caused her to become conservative. We also touched base on advice she would have given her younger self, when she was a very progressive activist. I also ask her to chime in on how Hasbro is promoting critical race theory with its products and how actions like it are affecting our children. If you want to feel inspired by a breath of fresh air, I highly suggest you tune into today's episode.  ABOUT MY GUEST Bracha Goetz is not your typical Harvard  grad - she's the author of 39 picture books that help children grow  spiritually, inspiring each uniquely beautiful soul to shine. Her  books make life's deepest concepts clear - in a delightfully simple way  - as children find big ideas in little words. Bracha Goetz can be  contacted for presentations at brachagoetzbooks@gmail.com. (BTW,  ever wonder why these bios are written in the "third person"?

How to be Black and Conservative with Joe Mobley
I spoke with Joe Mobley today about his worldview and what prompted him to become a conservative. Afterwards, we ventured down a long and winding road comparing liberal blacks to conservative blacks, foreign born blacks verses native born blacks, how far the left will go to prove a point and why the right doesn't fight that way. Towards the end, we settled on how people can (and should) stand up and be confident with their political voice, even when it means being ostracized by the popular crowd. I enjoyed the conversation and think you will too.

The Political Theater of Election Audits
I sat down with Jason Davis of "Don't Tread on Liberty Podcast." We discussed many things: Marxism, racism, critical race theory and politics in America. We talked for a long while but what stood out the most to me was his views on the election audits underway in Arizona. (So much so, I cut out all the other things we talked about and focused on that!) You see Jason lives in AZ. He is a very determined political activist with an unpopular view of what the election audits will accomplish. He sees it all as a distraction and that patriot efforts are better focused on election reform. Does he have a point? Tune in to hear his arguments which are based on the Constitution and his personal experiences. This is a VERY intriguing conversation.

Are Black People Free in America? (An interview with "Tree of Logic")
Are Black people free in America? If not, what enslaves them? Is it systemic racism? Is it political affiliation? Or is it a lack of cultural accountability? In this episode, Jim Stroud chats with "Tree," the YouTube sensation from the show - Tree of Logic. The conversation is lively and the topics ebb and flow around racism. For example, what determines true blackness in America? Just how rampant is liberal hypocrisy? What about "boogee" blacks in search of a struggle to identify with? And will racism ever go away when there is so much money and power to gain from it? The time flew by on this episode and as serious as the subject matter was, you could not tell from all the laughing.

Its one thing to hear about reverse discrimination and quite another to experience it first hand. In this episode, I speak with Jeff Wagner of "Red Blooded Patriot" fame to discuss how the HR department told him that he would not be promoted because it would skew their diversity numbers. In addition to discussing his reaction to that, we delve into issues of equality, white people on welfare, lowering professional standards for the sake of equity, the left's pro-segregation demands and who benefits from all the racial division in America.

A New Kind Of Evil - Forced Human Organ Harvesting #CHINA
I thought that I had heard it all and nothing more could surprise me.  And then, I had a chat with Mitchell Gerber who blew my mind when he informed me of a new kind of evil happening in China. Imagine if you would, finding human beings at their healthy peak then harvesting their organs while they are still alive. The motivation? Millions, upon millions, upon millions of dollars for the healthcare industry in China. How has this been allowed to continue for the past two decades or so? Why hasn't the mainstream media been reporting this? How truly, truly evil is this? Tune in for a very intriguing conversation with an investigative reporter who has been on this story for 20 years.

The Black America Accountability Paradox
Last week the nation honored Juneteenth by making it a national holiday. In most cases, it was celebrated as intended with parades and festivals. However, there were some instances where reprehensible acts were done in its honor. When I learned how some African Americans brought in the Juneteenth holiday, I was embarrassed for them. It made me wonder if Black America would ever hold itself accountable for its self-inflicted wounds. In this episode, accountability is the word of the day.

America is NOT a racist country (and I can prove it!)
A recent survey revealed that black people agree that race relations are worse under Biden than when trump was in office.  When I read that it  occurred to me that if someone really wanted to know the state of race relations in the USA, three data points would be undeniable: the rate of interracial marriages, interracial families and interracial adoptions. What better measures could there be of total acceptance than that? In this episode I share some very compelling stats.

Go Woke. Go Broke. It happens every time.
"Get Woke, Go Broke" (aka "Go Woke. Go Broke.") is a phrase coined by the internationally bestselling author John Ringo to express the opinion that when organizations “get woke” to politically correct actions, those same actions usually result in a massive loss of income. There are a LOT, and I mean a LOT, of companies that have fallen into this trap and yet they proliferate ad nauseum.

4 Reasons Why You Should Ban Critical Race Theory From Your Workplace
What is critical race theory? It is a movement to make racism socially acceptable. Critical race theory supports the logic that all whites are born racists and oppressors by nature. They are to be viewed as a collective threat to non-white people and beyond redemption. This sentiment is already infecting the American workplace via racial sensitivity and diversity trainings. Despite the obvious controversy, such trainings are being accepted as just and fair and at an alarming pace across Corporate America. At best, critical race theory is counterproductive and at worst it destroys the fabric of society by prohibiting community. To apply its tenets to the workplace is to commission a slow rot to your enterprise. In this episode, I give 4 reasons why companies should ban critical race theory from its workplace.  ...

Ghettos for thee but not for Me
Here's a quote from the NY Post, "As protests broke out across the country in the name of Black Lives Matter, the group’s co-founder went on a real estate buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records." When this inconvenient fact hit the tabloids there were accusations of fraud and calls for an investigation into her finances by one of the BLM leaders. As shocking as this all is (I'm shocked. #sarcasm), this news will not hit the critical mass that it should. Indeed, it will all be forgotten and in the very near future. I'll explain why in this episode.  Links related to this episode can be found here: Ghettos for thee but, not for me. – Jim Stroud https://buff.ly/3s7o8BW FYI: I am a proud member of the Freedom First Network. https://freedomfirstnetwork.com/

SURVEY: Race Relations Worse Under Biden than Trump
To quote Washington Examiner, "According to the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, this one on the George Floyd murder trial of a white Minneapolis police officer, 40% of likely voters said race relations have deteriorated under Biden. About 3% of respondents said they see no change, and 22% said they are better." When I read that I wondered how race relations are measured in our country. Typically, there is a survey or poll of some kind, followed by opinion. It occurred to me that if someone really wanted to know the state of race relations in the USA, three data points would be undeniable: the rate of interracial marriages, interracial families and the rate of interracial adoption. What better measures could there be of total acceptance than that? I think it would be hard to find a more convincing argument.

911 is a joke!
What happens when a city decides not to prosecute crimes? Specifically, crimes like drug possession, prostitution and defecating in public? Chances are people will stop calling the police since they know help will not be forthcoming. So, when 911 calls go down is that really proof that not prosecuting those crimes is resulting in less crimes. Umm... NO! But, that won't stop cities like Baltimore and Los Angeles from doing it.

This is Why Recruiters Don't Give Feedback
I have a background in recruiting so from time to time, I get questions like this via LinkedIn, “Do you think companies should give more feedback to candidates after interviews?” The question was posed to me in an open forum. Before I responded, I noticed that the comments were from the perspective of the jobseeker. Understandably, everyone who interviews for a job wants to know the “real deal” on why they were rejected. More often than not, job seekers receive a form letter that says (in so many words) thanks but no thanks, we hired someone else. As blunt as that response is, I think it’s the best course of action for the company. Why? Several reasons but this recent headline gives one prime example - "Facebook Told Black Applicant with PH.D She Needed to Show Culture Fit." In this episode, I discuss that article and my reactions.  Links related to this episode: This is why companies do not give job applicants feedback… – Jim Stroud https://buff.ly/3bEzhVV Racism Reimagined: How Critical Race Theory Imperils the American Workplace -  https://buff.ly/3mBM0uQ

Its okay to be racist when...
One of the tenets of Critical Race Theory is to see racism in everything. I talked about that in my ebook – “Racism Reimagined: How Critical Race Theory Imperils the American Workplace.” Whenever I see reports of hate crimes, I tend to be skeptical. This is not to say that hate crimes do not exist. They certainly do. However, I do not believe that they occur at the rates the mainstream media and the culture of leftist victimhood would have me believe. I also have noticed that in certain circumstances, racism is perfectly fine and socially acceptable. I share my thoughts on these issues inside this episode.  Resources cited in this podcast: Racism Reimagined: How Critical Race Theory Imperils the American Workplace https://www.tradepub.com/free/w_jims01/ Is racial discrimination ever right?

Who decides the sex of your child?
Who decides the sex of your child? Biology? Not anymore, if some people have their way. Did you know that there is a growing movement to give the choice of personal gender to children without input or prior consent from their parents? I discuss gender-dysphoric children and how a certain doctor describes transition affirming protocol is nothing less than child abuse.  Links related to this podcast: Who decides the sex of your child? – Jim Stroud https://j.mp/2MqtNnI Racism Reimagined: How Critical Race Theory Imperils the American Workplace - https://www.tradepub.com/free/w_jims01/

5 Biden Scandals You Might Not Know About
A popular search term on DuckDuckGo is "Biden Crime Family." Why is that search trending? The mainstream media has done a really good job at suppressing news that would be global headline scandals if they involved President Donald Trump and his family members. A recent poll proved that one in six Biden voters would have changed their vote if they had known about the scandals suppressed by the mainstream media. So, just what are those scandals? Well, I discuss the ones I know about in this episode.

CNN Wants to Cancel, Not Compete
CNN has been advocating for the demise of FOX, One America News Network and Newsmax, all conservative news outlets. I see this as proof that CNN is more interested in promoting their media narratives than being a business. If they were about business, CNN would be competing with their own conservative opinion shows.

The Dangers of Long Term Mask Use
I’ve noticed a new trend lately and likely you have too or, will soon recognize it. People are wearing more than one mask to combat Covid. A lot of focus has been on protecting other people from (possibly) catching Covid from you. However, what are the effects to you when you wear a mask long-term? No one seems to be talking about that. I was curious. I looked it up and found that there are some very serious health risks to wearing a mask long-term, the most severe being death. Tune in to hear what I mean.  Info related to this podcast: “The Dangers of Long Term Mask Use” https://buff.ly/2Z7rfNX “FACE MASKS: A 2020 TIMELINE, WHO’S U-TURN & STILL NO HIGH QUALITY EVIDENCE” https://j.mp/37KrC5T Get my BEST updates delivered to your inbox everyday. https://sendfox.com/jimstroud

How Liberals and Conservatives Respond to Death
Rush Hudson Limbaugh III is an American radio personality, conservative political commentator, author and former television show host. He is best known as the host of his radio show The Rush Limbaugh Show, which has been in national syndication on AM and FM radio stations since 1988. People on the right lionized him just as much (if not greater) as people on the left demonized him. No matter where you are on the political spectrum, Rush Limbaugh’s impact on politics has been undeniable. Also, how you respond to his death says a lot about your politics.  ...

The Raging Hate Against Conservatives
Two recent articles are typical of the raging hate against conservatives. Disney fired actress Gina Carano from the cast of the popular Disney Plus-Star Wars spinoff series The Mandalorian. Her firing came after Carano shared a social media post that critics say downplayed the experience of Jews during the Holocaust. In my opinion, and in the viewpoint of others, it did not. YouTube recently banned Lifesite from its platform because it disagreed with its pro-life politics. These are but mild examples of how the left seeks to destroy the influence of conservatives in America. I share more disturbing examples on this podcast.  Links to the resources mentioned can be found on my blog here: https://blog.jimstroud.com/2021/02/08/the-war-and-hate-against-conservatives/ Subscribe to my daily updates here: https://sendfox.com/jimstroud

Equity is not Equality. Equality is what I want.
“I’ll be driving our efforts to ensure that matters of equity and justice are fully incorporated into all that we try to do,” said Susan E. Rice, chair of Biden’s Domestic Policy Council. The talk of equity sounds good yet, it doesn’t mean what most people  think when they hear it. There has been a long running argument focused  on equity vs equality that will only heat up during the Biden administration. However the crux of the argument of equity verses equality could be summed up in two expressed viewpoints: Kamala Harris vs Ben Shapiro. In this episode, I discuss the equity verses equality argument and add my viewpoints as well.

Domestic Terrorism: Trump's New Army and the Terrorist Next Door
When I was growing up, horror movies frightened me: Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, American Werewolf in London and so on used to have me biting my fingernails and jumpy for days after watching them. Yet, I would not stop watching them because they were thrilling and because in the back of my mind, I knew it was fake. At some point the director would say “cut” and all the actors playing dead will arise and everyone would go home.  Today something else scares me more than Freddy Krueger or Jason ever could because its real and there seems to be no stopping it. A priority in President Biden’s administration is to stamp out domestic terrorism. Domestic terrorism is loosely being defined as anyone who supported and/or voted for Donald Trump which is about 70 million people. Is that wise? I will discuss the war against domestic terrorism in general and #TrumpsNewArmy specifically, in this episode.  My eBook - "Racism Reimagined: How Critical Race Theory Imperils the American Workplace" can be downloaded here: http://bit.ly/RacismReimagined Subscribe to my updates (blog posts, videos, podcasts, more) here: https://sendfox.com/jimstroud

You can divide the USA down the middle by asking one question, “Who won the 2020 presidential election?” Depending on your answer, you are demonized at worst, considered duped by the media at best or somewhere in between. There are a lot of memes and “Facebook facts” abounding about the election but few back up their stance with a PhD level analysis of the facts. One who did was Dr. Peter Navarro.

St. Nicholas and The Secret History of Black Santas
The modern image of Santa Claus was created in the late 1800s by American artist Thomas Nast in a series of cartoons for Harper's Weekly magazine. It became a staple of Christmas cards and advertising images in the early 20th Century, most notably a 1930s Coca-Cola commercial, which some believe popularized his distinctive red-and-white garb. However, the origins of this cultural icon run much deeper than that. In fact, it predates the inception of our nation, itself. I’ll share the true origin of Santa Claus and the secret history of Black Santas in America. Tune in for a very special episode.

CENSORSHIP: How They Hide What They Don’t Want You To See
I stumbled across an article the other day about a black man firing a gun into a crowd of trump supporters. Regardless of someone's political leanings, I thought it was a relevant story; especially as massive rallies are still being held today. Yet, it was not a blip on the national news. It also did not go viral on social media, which I thought would've likely happened. And then I wondered if the story was trending on social media but was soon thereafter censored by big tech companies.  "How does censorship work with big tech companies?" I wondered. So, I looked it up and will share with you what I found in this episode. | Special thanks to my sponsor Black History Quiz (www.BlackHistoryQuiz.com) Also, all tips are appreciated.

Black People Won’t Take the Covid-19 Vaccine Because...
So, I read this article from the Los Angeles Times called “'Why won't Black folks trust us' on COVID-19?” and I thought it was fascinating, yet obvious, in terms to the answer to that question. To quote, "The second option is to target Black people and roll it out in the neighborhoods that have logged the most cases. "But then," Cofer said, "people are going to say, ‘Oh, no! You're not gonna experiment on us like you did with Tuskegee.’" In this episode, I go into deeper detail on The Tuskeegee Experiment and other reasons why, I think, most African-Americans will not take the Covid-19 Vaccine when it debuts.  | Links related to this podcast can be found on my blog.

Its Culture Not Color That Holds Us Back
I read an article in USA Today entitled,  "What is systemic racism? Here’s what it means and how you can help dismantle it.” When I read it, a healthy skepticism triggered within me. There was a big emphasis on how systemic racism made it difficult for African Americans to succeed.  Yet,  I could name many successful African American celebrities, athletes, business people and politicians.  And that lead me to consider other questions.  If systemic racism is such a problem today, why are so many minority groups doing better than whites economically?  In the past, systemic racism was much more pronounced than it is today. That being the case, it would be impossible for African Americans to become millionaires after the Civil War and yet, there were several. Why?  And if systemic racism is not the blame or at least, not the biggest impediment to African American progress, what is? I mull over all these things in this episode of my podcast which is a condensed version of an article I posted on my blog earlier this year - "Its Color Not Culture That Holds Us Back."

Do I have to be vaccinated to work here?
According to the CNBC, the United States reported more than 195,500 new cases of the coronavirus on Friday, a record-high spike less than a week before Thanksgiving, which public health officials are warning could further exacerbate the outbreak. Health warnings are being circulated on TV, radio and the internet. Eventually Thanksgiving, Christmas, Festivus, Kwanzaa and all other December holidays will be over. 2021 will emerge and with it, a return to the office. At least, some people think so and have made huge investments in returning to the office. They have also created some severe penalties. What do I mean by that? Its quite possible that unless you are vaccinated against Covid-19  you will be prohibited from working, traveling and interacting with society. Sound crazy? Its entirely possible based on what's already happening in Australia. (No jab. No job.) Tune into a very controversial episode.  Links related to this podcast can be found at JimStroud.com.

One of my articles, “The Next American Civil War is Upon Us” has been growing in popularity on my blog – JimStroud.com. So much so, I decided to do this shortened podcast version here. Please check out the full version and subscribe to my blog while you’re at it. I will appreciate it.  Here begins a short preview of what you will hear in this episode, "Yesterday, the media declared Joe Biden as President-Elect of the United States. People celebrated. People lamented. It was the very spark of a new civil war. You see, many are under the impression that the media calls out the winner of the election. They do not. When George Bush ran against Al Gore for the US Presidency, the media declared Al Gore as the winner. Yet, there were recounts and indeed George Bush was the winner, much to the chagrin of Al Gore supporters. Today, history is repeating itself before our very eyes. However, this time, I think the effects will be far worse for our country."  If you want to support my work, a quick tip via Cash App is ALWAYS appreciated.

Voting is broken. This will fix it!
It is 3 days after the 2020 Presidential Election and that is simply unacceptable to me. With all of our technology and workforce available, there is really no reason why this should be the case. The skeptical side of me leans towards the notion that the complications in counting the votes is rooted in some nefarious intent. Whereas the more optimistic side of me suggests that I should not underestimate the potential of human incompetence. Either way, I see a simple solution for all of this. I am presenting them here with the hope that future elections do not suffer the foibles of this one.  The transcript of this episode and related links can be found at www.JimStroud.com.

What has Trump done for Black America?
In the last Presidential debate, President Donald Trump said, "...with the exception of Abraham Lincoln, no one has done more for the black community than Trump." As spirited as the debate was that comment resonated with me more than all the rest. It made me wonder. What has President Trump done for African Americans? If anything… Is he truly the greatest President for blacks since Abraham Lincoln? Is he as racist as so many people want me to believe? I wanted to know for myself so I did my own research.

What is the fairest way to pay remote (work from home) workers?
Facebook announced in May that up to half of its workforce is likely to be working from home within the next five to 10 years. There is one caveat: staff salaries could be adjusted to align with the cost of living in their chosen location, meaning potential pay cuts for those considering moving away from its expensive Palo Alto base and other global hubs. Is this fair? I think about the pros and cons of paying remote (work from home) workers and come up with a compromise that is fair for workers and companies alike.

Hidin' Biden - How Big Tech is Fixing the Presidential Election
The NY Post published the political equivalent of a nuclear bomb this week. Based on emails from Hunter Biden's laptop, they have found credible evidence of Joe Biden’s corruption when he served in the White House under President Obama. As amazing as this is to me, what is even more surprising is how this information has been banned from social media and censored in the mainstream media during this critical Presidential election season.

Slavery was abolished! Its time to forgive.
Americans in general identify with one form of religion or another; although that number is declining. Pew Research Center conducted surveys in 2018 and 2019 and discovered 65% of American adults describe themselves as Christians when asked about their religion, down 12 percentage points over the past decade. When the focus is on African Americans, nearly eight-in-ten African Americans (79%) identify as Christian. That is also according to Pew research. Why do I share all of that? To make a point. The overall majority of Americans claim a religion; typically Christian. Forgiveness is a major tenet of Christianity. So, why haven’t Americans, especially African Americans, forgiven slavery? I hypothesize that in this episode of my podcast.  Special thanks to my sponsor Black History Quiz!  Resources cited in this podcast can be found at JimStroud.com

Critical Race Theory is Racism. Resist it!
Please leave a 5-Star rating (or what you feel is appropriate) and comments on Apple Podcasts or your favorite podcast platform.  ...   President Donald Trump canceled race-related training sessions in federal agencies and companies doing business with the United States government. I support that decision because the cancelled training is founded in Critical Race Theory [CRT]. In my opinion, CRT is evil and should be resisted. Not only should it be banned from the government but, corporate America and the public school systems! Unfortunately, that is not the case and CRT is taking ground in those areas of society.

The Case Against Reparations for African Americans
The other day, I was speaking to a very dear friend of mine about race issues in America. (My friend happens to be white.) She asked me what percentage of black people would likely hold her personally responsible  for slavery? I told her that I could not quantify a percentage but likely,  many African Americans would hold her responsible for the sins of her ancestors. For the record, I vehemently disagree with that opinion.  Why?   Over the years,  I’ve heard several arguments made for reparations on numerous occasions but none have satisfied me. Why? For me, it always comes down to this - who should pay? It is this question that my case against reparations for African Americans rest. Tune in for the details.

Is It Time to Cancel Robert Byrd?
This is election season and as such, I expect propaganda to flow from both sides of the aisle. One that caught my eye today was against Joe Biden. It was a picture of him holding hands with the late Senator Robert Byrd at a political rally with the caption, “Does a Photo Show Joe Biden With the ‘Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan’?” The internet meme caught my attention so, I had to research Robert Byrd and learn about this alleged Klan connection. For the record, Senator Robert Byrd was NOT a Grand Wizard. Was he involved with the Klan in any way? Most definitely. In this episode, I look into the history of one of the longest serving U.S. Senators in American history and ask, "Is it time to cancel Robert Byrd?"  Resources related to this podcast can be found at www.JimStroud.com.  Special thanks to my sponsor Black History Quiz / www.blackhistoryquiz.com

If America is so racist, why is this happening?
I saw a video that featured teenagers and their reaction to racial injustice and police brutality in the wake of the George Floyd protests and riots. Listening to some of their testimonies was heartbreaking as they likened the USA to a third world country run by demagogues and storm troopers.  When the video finished, I asked myself, "If I were a black immigrant with the entire world as my option, would I choose to live in a country that would oppress me at every turn?" Of course, I would not, yet millions of black immigrants flow into the USA everyday and they prosper. How can that be when America is so racist?  This is the first in a series of episodes defending America as being a racist institution profiting on the exploitation of minorities.

How To Cancel "Cancel Culture"
The woke cancel culture in society seeks to publicly shame or withdraw support from public figures because of unpopular opinions or offensive actions. In some cases, it might be appropriate to do so, yet increasingly it is a sign of mob culture that has gotten out of control. What happens when cancel culture enters the workplace and people are fired because someone is triggered by an alleged woke vs racism comment or an opinion expressed decades ago? Worse yet, what if you are cancelled at work for trying to help a cause that both parties agree with? It may sound crazy but free speech is under attack and it is becoming more prevalent in the workspace. In this episode, Jim Stroud examines examples of cancel culture, why it persists and what it will take to finally end it. Tune in for a very special episode. Big thanks to Black History Quiz!

When writing The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx thought he was providing a road to utopia, but everywhere his ideas were tried, they resulted in catastrophe and mass murder. And there is no exception to that rule. Not the Soviet Union, not Eastern Europe, not China, not North Korea, not Vietnam, not Cuba, not Venezuela, not Bolivia, not Zimbabwe. Wherever Marxism goes, economic collapse, terror and famine follow. How is this relevant? Black Lives Matter co-founder – Patrisse Cullors admits that she and fellow founder – Alicia Graza are trained Marxists. I will speculate on the ramifications of that in this episode.  | Special thanks to my sponsor - Black History Quiz!  Subscribe to the Black History Quiz Newsletter today!

The Lone Ranger Manifesto
Next to my father, the only other man I looked up to when growing up was The Lone Ranger. Silver bullets, a black mask, a white horse and Tonto mean more in the maturity of my adulthood than they did in my childhood, but I always had an appreciation for them (even when I was not totally sure what I was celebrating). Webster defines a manifesto as “A public declaration of principles, policies, or intentions, especially of a political nature.” If you would indulge me, I would like to explain and evangelize what I call “The Lone Ranger Manifesto” with the hope that it becomes not just a series of amusing observations, but a moral template to live by. | Resources related to this podcast can be found here: https://bit.ly/ThingsIThinkAbout4  / Special thanks to my sponsor - Black History Quiz!

Snowflakes Make Bad Employees
Do you know someone or, have seen someone, angry over trivial matters? Perhaps, you have witnesses someone go into a rage over a microaggression? If so, would you hire them to work for you? Chances are you would not because instinctively you know that they would make a bad employee. Well, you no longer have to rely on your gut for such decisions. A scientific paper has been published that backs up what you already knew. Snowflakes make bad employees. I discuss the research in this episode and oh boy, is it good! |  Articles and resources cited in this podcast can be found here:  https://bit.ly/ThingsIThinkAbout3  / Special thanks to my sponsor - Black History Quiz!

Defunding The Police is a Bad Idea
I watched an interview of Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors where she argued that police need to be defunded and by doing so, would resolve issues of homelessness, gentrification and improve the overall quality of life for society. I took note of what she said and found points where we agreed and very much disagreed. Plus, I make several ominous predictions based on a very disturbing trend.

There is a place for passion and there is a place for facts.
I saw a video of a young woman engaging a senior citizen over her desire to tear down a statue; both African-American. The woman was irate and near the point of violence. The man of a certain age was calm, resolute and determined to have a civil discourse. As I watched it all play out, I wondered, how can society ever have civil discussions and peaceful resolutions when one side refuses to hear the other? I don’t have all the answers but, I do offer a few suggestions in this episode.  Articles and resources cited in this podcast can be found here: https://bit.ly/thingsIthinkabout1   Special thanks to my sponsor - Black History Quiz!  Subscribe to the Black History Quiz newsletter now! https://www.getrevue.co/profile/bhq/
