Dean Cain is an actor, writer, producer, father and one of the rare Conservatives in Hollywood. On the podcast, he talks about many of his conservative viewpoints, including the need for term limits in Congress; there was never supposed to be a political class in this country.

He signed with the Buffalo Bills, but a knee injury quickly ended his NFL career before it began. Dean returned to acting, and is perhaps best known for his role as Superman on ABC’s LOIS & CLARK, the popular ABC series that averaged 15 million viewers during its run. Dean recently wrapped the 3rd season of VH1’s hit series, HIT THE FLOOR, recurs on the hit CW series, SUPERGIRL, and is hosting the fourth season of the CW smash hit, MASTERS OF ILLUSION. Dean next stars in the feature film, GOSNELL, and the short film, STATE OF WARD, and is often seen co-hosting the TODAY SHOW, ACCESS HOLLYWOOD, and is a frequent guest on FOX NEWS’ OUTNUMBERED on FOX AND FRIENDS.

How Insurance & Government Dictates your Health – An Interview with Matt Feshbach – Episode 380

Nov 19, 2018 1:15:24

Description:

Mark is joined by Matt Feshbach on today’s show. Matt is the Founder of AMBROSE Cell Therapy, which is a stem cell hospital. He has years of experience in the medical field and has a great understanding of healthcare options. They start off by discussing the “Right-to-Try” law that has was recently signed into law. They discuss the importance of giving terminally ill patients the right to try experimental drugs that have the chance to improve their health. Mark brings up the point that it is a basic human right to own our own biology and that the government has hijacked our basic right to make decisions on our own health. As they continue their discussion, Mark and Matt discuss the politics of getting an FDA approval for a new drug. Mark explains how the pharmaceutical companies and the government have stopped innovation by limiting it to those who can spend the billions of dollars on the approval process. Matt expands on this by explaining that the pharmaceutical companies and government benefit from these high costs, but the drug companies are not doing this to harm people. Matt explains that the stem cell research and therapy that he does is not embryonic stem cells; they are stem cells from the body’s own fat. Matt also explains what a stem cell is and what the therapy can do for the patient. They include the regulations and government issues that they face with stem cell therapy. They wrap up on discussing the politics that are working against stem cell research and how insurance companies benefit from normal treatments because of government policies. Mark explains why the Affordable Care Act created an incentive for insurance companies to favor more expensive types of care. More about Matt Feshbach: Matthew (Matt) Feshbach is the Founder and CEO of AMBROSE Cell Therapy. AMBROSE was founded in 2017 with the mission: To help people with chronic degenerative diseases improve symptoms, function and quality of life with adult stem cell therapy. Matt has taken an unconventional path throughout his business career. He did not attend college but instead taught tennis at private homes in Silicon Valley. Through that experience he developed professional and personal relationships with a number of prominent investment managers, who inspired him to study securities analysis and begin investing himself. This led to the co-founding, with his brothers Kurt and Joe, of Feshbach Bros in 1982. Feshbach Bros. managed the first “short-only” hedge fund. Assets under management grew from $20,000 to $1 Billon in 9 years. Matt’s investment career, through the ups and downs of the stock market, spanned more than 30 years. In 2009 he and his brother, Joe, began researching adult stem cells and their potential, due to their interest in a publicly traded company. They spoke to researchers from all over the world - Israel to Japan, Holland to Spain, New York to Los Angeles, Chicago to Dallas and so on - to understand the best source of adult stem cells as well as the science, technologies and unmet medical needs they could potentially address. As a result of their research, they came to have a well-informed opinion that fat (adipose) tissue is the most accessible, abundant and potent source of adult stem and regenerative cells. As well, that the mixed population of adipose-derived stem and regenerative cells (ADRCs) could be used to address a broad spectrum of chronic diseases. This has now been validated in the published medical literature. 1 2 3 Along with his brother, Matt founded Okyanos (Oh-key-ah-nos) Cell Therapy in August 2011 in Freeport, Bahamas. The Greek God of Rivers, “Okyanos” symbolizes restoration of blood flow, which is an important mechanism of action of ADRCs. Shortly after helping to create Okyanos, Matt’s brother, Joe, sadly died of a cardiac arrest. Joe’s death prompted Matt to be even more dedicated his purpose to help patients with chronic disease with their own adult stem cells.

His razor-sharp wit and entertaining style have allowed him to participate in highly-publicized debates about politics and Christianity with some of the most famous atheists and leftists of our time, including Christopher Hitchens, Bill Ayers, and others.

Stopping Sanctuary for Illegal Aliens – an interview with Ben Bergquam – Episode 328

May 7, 2018 1:18:31

Description:

Ben Bergquam is the spokesman for Fight Sanctuary State, a group that has filed ballot initiatives to roll back all of California’s sanctuary laws. He discusses his motivation for being involved in this important group, detailing the current laws in California, including Senate Bill SB-54, that often enable criminal illegal immigrants to get away with their crimes. The lives of criminal illegal aliens are often prioritized in the legal system over those of American citizens. They discuss AB-450, which prevents employers from cooperating with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) without potentially facing prosecution. They consider the reframing of the immigration process in America today, where becoming a legal immigrant seems to be a bad thing now. It used to be that people were proud to become Americans because it meant a better future. Many people escape other countries to flee communism, but then end up in a nearly communist California. They also talk about why this Californian issue is important for the rest of the nation and what dangers it imposes on America as a whole. Also on the podcast, Chuck and Mark talk about NBC headlines and how they’re trying to create negative associations with President Trump. About the guest: Fight Sanctuary State was founded by California parents whose children were killed by illegal aliens and others who are fed up with the state's politicians, who prioritize illegal alien criminals over the state's citizens and legal immigrants. The group has filed a proposed ballot initiative to roll back all of California's sanctuary laws and create criminal penalties for government workers and officials who obstruct the work of federal immigration officers. Ben Bergquam is an activist who has seen the death and destruction lawless sanctuary policies have had on the lives of his fellow Californians. “When the politicians become the very enemies that they took an oath to protect Americans from, it’s time to fight back.” Learn more at https://fightsanctuarystate.com/.

Also on the podcast, Chuck and Mark talk about Mueller wanting to interview President Trump, the military being posted at the U.S.-Mexico border and how Trump might build the wall. About the guest: I discovered my love of politics when I realized that I love learning about how human beings can and should live together in political communities. From this interest, I found enjoyment in reading and considering the great works of Western civilization that discuss the meaning of justice, law, institutions and the ordering of human life by these ideas. The purpose of higher education is to cultivate human beings and citizens, which it does by cultivating in students the desire and capacity to contemplate both their humanity and their citizenship. My teaching method focuses on conversations about important texts of political thought, predominately within the history of political philosophy, Constitutional law, and American political thought. This focus allows students to encounter great thinkers and ideas directly and to interact with them and with one another. We seek to understand the authors as they understood themselves and then engage them in a respectful but analytical fashion. I love to teach, but I especially love teaching at Hillsdale, which I have done since 2014. The students here are thoughtful, hard-working, and possess a generosity of spirit that makes them a joy to interact with. Hillsdale’s politics degree offers the chance to converse with Aristotle, Locke, the American founders, Lincoln, and many more of the great political thinkers and statesmen of the past. A focus on these areas is rare in today’s higher education, yet it is vital, and it is what we strive for here. In my free time, I engage in scholarly research and writing, spend time with my wife, Emily, as well as friends and family, and watch copious amounts of sports—namely Baylor and Ohio State University college basketball and football, as well as my beloved Cincinnati Reds.

The Present-Day Communist Threat – an Interview with Trevor Loudon – Episode 314

Mar 19, 2018 1:10:49

Description:

Trevor Loudon is an author, filmmaker and public speaker from Christchurch, New Zealand. For more than 30 years, he has researched radical left, Marxist and terrorist movements and their covert influence on mainstream politics. They talk about the Left’s push toward Socialism in America, including the reviving of the “Rainbow Coalition” strategy for the upcoming elections. They discuss the real threat of a small group of people pushing a communist/socialist agenda through the government. Many on the left don’t even understand what “progressive” means, but it is a troubling trend that the media supports with leftist propaganda. With Loudon, they explore many of the frightening realities going on in the U.S. and the world, and they talk about what we can do to stop it. Also on the podcast, Chuck and Mark consider the way Trump is firing a number of people from his administration and the fake news that the media are making it into. About the guest: Trevor Loudon’s thesis is that what is commonly regarded as mainstream political policy is in fact driven and guided by hidden subversive elements. The Democratic party’s consistent defunding of the US military, Obamacare, the Iran Nuclear Deal, normalization of relations with Cuba, Islamic refugee re-settlement, $15 minimum wage, fracking bans, pipeline shutdowns and the push for illegal alien amnesty are all consistent with far-left and Islamist agendas. Trevor Loudon believes that these forces must be exposed and countered, as America’s continued role as a bastion of freedom is pivotal for the future of western civilization. Some of Trevor Loudon’s accomplishments: Trevor is currently working on his new film with Director Judd Saul: “Enemies Within: The Church.” Trevor’s hard-hitting political documentary, the Enemies Within, was released in 2016. In Collaboration with the Capital Research Center, Trevor Loudon and Director Judd Saul  created a series of mini-documentaries free to the public: America Under Siege: Civil War 2017 America Under Siege: Soviet Islam America Under Siege: Antifa Trevor Loudon discovered the long-hidden relationship between notorious Hawaiian Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis and the young Barack Obama in 2007. After extensively researching Obama’s ties to the New York and Chicago Marxist movements, Loudon began publishing his findings online, catching the eye of such prominent voices as Accuracy in Media and syndicated radio host Glenn Beck. In 2009 Loudon exposed the communist roots of Obama “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones. After an extensive campaign by Glenn Beck and others, Jones was forced to resign from his White House position. Since 2011 Loudon has toured the United States promoting his two books “Barack Obama and the Enemies Within” and “The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress” – an extensively footnoted expose of the rapidly unfolding Marxist takeover of the United States government. Loudon has addressed more than 400 conservative, tea party, religious and Republican groups in more than 37 states. Loudon has interviewed many people from both sides of the struggle over the years to former Western intelligence offices, to government undercover operatives inside the communist movement, to former KGB officers. This research has given Loudon unique insight into how extensively often minuscule communist parties have been able to manipulate, and even control policy formation in many Western countries – particularly the “main enemy:” the United States of America. Loudon’s research shows that this is not just a historical problem but is a very grave and looming threat which will not only impact America’s national security but indeed her very survival. Trevor proudly serves as a fellow at both the American Freedom Alliance and the Inter-American Institute for Philosophy, Government, and Social Thought.

Conservative Thoughts from a Legal Immigrant – a Conversation with Cirsten Weldon – Episode 311

Mar 8, 2018 57:21

Description:

Cirsten Weldon is a legal immigrant, author and interior designer who was born in Singapore and now lives in the United States. On the podcast, she discusses some details about how well she believes Singapore’s republican government runs, with low income tax and virtually no crime. She once lived in the liberal states of Hawaii and California, and she talks about how far downhill California has gone because of its leadership and sanctuary state status. They also talk about the DACA problem from the perspective of a legal immigrant. They discuss the new official Obama portraits and the other subversive works of Kehinde Wiley. Also on the podcast, Chuck and Mark talk about the Parkland shooting and the investigation into the lead-up to it. They also consider the double standard of how law enforcement has to treat people of different races and immigration statuses, for fear of getting in trouble. They also talk about the hypocrisy of the left regarding nepotism, in business versus politics. About the guest: Cirsten Weldon was inspired by her experiences as a model and actress, as well as by her personal faith and political worldview, to write her story in Singaporean Thoughts. It includes her thoughts on decor, politics, religion, and dating. She lived a very interesting and, to some, coveted, childhood. Her father was the Chairman of the Singapore Stock Exchange, and her mother a Cambridge-educated attorney. At 14, she left her very affluent family in Singapore to go to boarding school, a tough decision for a young girl, but one she has never regretted. As she says in Singaporean Thoughts, it gave her a strong foundation of hard work that has continued to serve her through adulthood. As a child growing up in Singapore, Cirsten never dreamed she would grow up to become an international model, cover girl, and actress. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree at the young age of 18 from Loma Linda University, which allowed her to go on to live in numerous exciting places including California, Hawaii, New York, Europe, Singapore, and Japan. From her Singaporean heritage, she was always naturally a conservative capitalist. Her father was the Chairman of the Singapore Stock Exchange, as well as Chairman of a hotel chain. Her mother, who graduated from Cambridge in London, worked in real estate. Cirsten found great career success when she appeared in the film about the musical group, The Doors. However, this led to a lifestyle of constant partying, ultimately resulting in drug overdose in the ‘90s, which prompted her to leave Los Angeles and get back to her roots as a Second Generation Seventh Day Adventist. Once she reclaimed her relationship with God, she was led to her passion of interior design, and starred in two design television shows. Currently, Cirsten has residences in Tennessee and Florida and is enjoying expanding her passions into writing. Follow Cirsten on Twitter @cirstenw and on Facebook.

Suppressing Shakespeare’s True Identity – an Interview with Katherine Chiljan – Episode 310

Mar 5, 2018 1:00:47

Description:

Katherine Chiljan, an independent scholar on the subject, discusses the controversy surrounding the authorship of William Shakespeare’s plays. She talks about who evidence suggests the writer really was and speculates on the potential politics behind the “identity theft” in the 17th century and why the deception may have occurred. She also considers the intense pushback at universities today against the evidence that proves the “Stratford Man” was not the real author of the classic works. Chuck and Mark talk about how prevalent this stubborn thinking is among liberal college professors. Chiljan explains that when you know the truth about the real Shakespeare, the entire experience is much richer. Also on the show, Chuck and Mark talk about the list of gun-related legislation that President Trump has recently called for, the strange phenomenon of World Hijab Day, and the recent loss of Billy Graham. About the guest: An independent scholar, Katherine Chiljan has studied the Shakespeare authorship question for over 30 years. A graduate of U.C.L.A. in history, Chiljan became interested in the controversy when she saw a TV debate about Shakespeare’s identity between an orthodox Shakespeare professor and a proponent of the 17th Earl of Oxford. The “Oxfordian” case was very convincing and inspired her to do her own research. Thereafter Chiljan has debated English professors on the authorship question at the Smithsonian Institution, U.C. Berkeley, and the Mechanics’ Institute Library in San Francisco. Chiljan was inspired to write Shakespeare Suppressed: The Uncensored Truth About Shakespeare and His Works (2011) after watching a prominent English professor insult doubters of the traditional Shakespeare on national television. The book took almost 7 years to complete and earned her an award for distinguished scholarship from Concordia University, Portland, OR (2012). Chiljan was also a contributing author to the ebook, Contested Year (2016), which exposed “Errors, Omissions and Unsupported Statements” in English Professor James Shapiro’s book, The Year of Lear: Shakespeare in 1606. Chiljan has served as editor of an Oxfordian newsletter, and has published the surviving letters of the 17th Earl of Oxford (Letters and Poems of Edward, Earl of Oxford, 1998).

Going Inside the FBI – an Interview with Jeff Danik – Episode 309

Mar 1, 2018 1:13:12

Description:

Jeff Danik was a seasoned Special Agent with the FBI, on the podcast to discuss the realities of the organization now. Danik talks about his time in the FBI, addressing some of the politics of getting certain positions in the Bureau. He explains why there are essentially two Federal Bureaus of Investigation, with a huge force of hardworking agents and a smaller group just trying to gain status. They talk about the failure in the organization surrounding the Parkland, Florida, shooting incident, and Danik explains what should have happened and could have been done to prevent the tragedy. They discuss the FISA memo and the transparency issues that happen regularly at the Bureau, as well as the taboo of starting an investigation in the DOJ that might affect an election – like Comey did. He considers how frightening it is that a very small group of powerful, appointed people in the government can wreak such havoc if so determined, and what we need to clean up the mess. Danik sheds some light on the day-to-day practices of the Bureau in terms of diversity and sensitivity training, including the exclusion of Christian groups in the process. About the guest: Former FBI Supervisory Special Agent Jeff Danik retired after a diverse, twenty-eight-year career with the FBI. His assignments included, as a Supervisor and Acting Watch Commander in the FBI’s Counter-Terrorism Division, lengthy tours as the FBI representative to Saudi Arabia and in the Horn of Africa, as well as a two-year assignment as the FBI representative to Kuwait. He holds the unique distinction of serving as an Acting Assistant Agent-in-Charge of both a violent crime and a white-collar crime branch of a major FBI field office. Danik supervised highly successful FBI task force operations in both white-collar crime and violent crime programs. In his final assignment, he had numerous police officers and detectives assigned to him as Task Force Officers. His Task Forces became models recognized by FBI leadership as best practices to be implemented elsewhere in the FBI. He served as a long-time FBI street agent in south Florida and was the lead investigator in kidnapping and bank robbery investigations. Being a former Certified Public Accountant, Danik has an extensive, successful track record of significant federal investigations into stock fraud, public corruption, money laundering, healthcare fraud, government procurement fraud, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and financial institution fraud. He has been named an Outstanding Investigator of the Year on several occasions by the United States Attorney’s Office.  

Obama’s Interference in Foreign Elections – Episode 308

Feb 26, 2018 1:04:06

Description:

Chuck and Mark address the idea of Russia tampering in our election, talking through how the Democrats and mainstream media are the ones colluding now to try and bring down Trump with false accusations. The fact is, election interference really is nothing new, and to stop the problem, we must stop it at home. The U.S. has interfered with 81 elections since 1946, and Russia has interfered with 36 that we know of. Chuck and Mark go through the extensive list of elections around the world that the Obama administration specifically meddled in, spending unthinkable amounts of American taxpayer dollars to push nations toward Islam or Socialism. Listen to also hear how George Soros has been funneled government funds to push the liberal agenda in multiple nations. Mark covers the threat in the current State Department because of Obama’s leftover bureaucratic diplomats. They discuss Congressman Bob Goodlatte, Senator Mike Lee and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson as possible hopes for stopping the persistent Obama agenda.

Young & Conservative in Hollywood – and Interview with Amanda Head – Episode 288

Dec 11, 2017 1:24:46

Description:

Amanda Head is host of the talk radio show The Hollywood Conservative, who has found that when talking one-on-one with people, even if they have very opposing viewpoints, the conversation is much less contentious than the mainstream media would have you believe. Amanda talks about making the choice to make a career shift from the music industry to political talk radio. She reveals how, because of her upbringing and principles, she has always been something of an outsider in Hollywood. Currently, she is working with Ted Harvey and the Committee to Defend the President as spokesperson. Also on the podcast, Chuck and Mark talk about the various sex-related scandals going through Hollywood, government and everywhere else – and how it’s going to end up hurting women. Also, they go through many examples of how the left become “experts” on topics once they hit the news, like bump stocks, climate change and much more. They reveal what unbelievable plan of action Joe Biden has suggested if you feel threatened when you’re at home. About the guest: Born and raised in the South, Amanda Head's strong conservative background is highly evident in both her professional and personal life. A Birmingham, Alabama, native, she's lived in Los Angeles since graduating with her Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Auburn University. In addition to her business degree, Amanda acquired her minor in Applied Music (voice). Amanda was the first freshman ever to become Miss Auburn University, where she advocated for music as a form of therapy in schools for students with learning disabilities and in hospitals and nursing homes as therapy for the elderly. Upon graduation, she moved to California to pursue music and film. Amanda is a seasoned classical singer and has performed in such venues as the Hollywood Bowl, Ford Amphitheater and in Austin, Texas at SXSW Music Festival. Prior to moving to Los Angeles, Amanda performed all over the southeast and New York, in musical theater and opera. Amanda's classical background allowed her to be vocally flexible, and, because of that, she has achieved success in many genres, notably, opera, jazz and pop. Amanda was the lead singer of an electro-pop duo whose first single charted at #36 on the Billboard Mainstream Top 40. Her duo toured nationally and found notoriety for their singles “Tear Me Down” and “Strip Me Bare.” From 2006 to 2016, Amanda was bound to various music contracts which prevented her from speaking publicly about her political positions. After a great deal of consideration, in January of 2016, Amanda decided to step away from the entertainment industry. She had grown increasingly concerned with her generation’s lack of incentive to be involved in our country’s future and wanted to make a difference. Amanda’s first step was to start a video blog called The Hollywood Conservative. With her political persuasion in Los Angeles, she felt she had a niche and a unique perspective for reaching audiences nationally who also are dissatisfied with the direction our leaders are taking our country. Amanda attended CPAC in Washington, D.C., where she garnered a great deal of attention in the political media realm and was offered her own radio show on Conservative Commandos Radio in Philadelphia.

An Introduction to Living Beyond 120 – an interview with Dr. Jeffrey Gladden – Episode 287

Dec 7, 2017 1:15:20

Description:

Dr. Jeffrey Gladden is a physician who specializes in human performance and longevity. Once specializing primarily as an interventional cardiologist, he started to realize that the current health care system was actually a sick care system. He began studying extensively about how to make people who are healthy even better, and he talks about how he now dedicates his practice, Apex Health and Human Performance, to helping people extend their lifespan and healthspan with preemptive medicine. They discuss some of the elements needed to live longer and better, but they also consider how the government doesn’t really want people to live longer lives. Mark and Dr. Gladden now host a new podcast, Living Beyond 120™, which tackles the health questions that most doctors rarely approach. These may be the keys to living a much longer life than most people have ever imagined. Learn more about the podcast and improving your healthspan at https://livingbeyond120.com/. Also on the podcast, Chuck and Mark talk about the business Crowds on Demand (see https://crowdsondemand.com/) and the way the left uses them to create the illusion of massive numbers. About the guest: Co-host of the Living Beyond 120™ podcast, Dr. Jeffrey Gladden is a board certified interventional cardiologist and founder of Apex Health and Human Performance Optimization. He did his undergraduate work at Wheaton College and earned his Doctor of Medicine degree with Honors from Temple University in 1982. He has specialized in many areas of cardiology, including interventional, diagnostic, preventative and programmatic. Gladden is currently the Director of Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention and Cardiac Rehabilitation at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano, which he co-founded in 2004. He is CEO Board Chair, Principle and CMO for Product Development at Scientia Cardio Access and a board member at Scientia Vascular. He is currently licensed in three states, his work is published in multiple medical journals, and he is a consultant for multiple cardiovascular projects, programs and medical device development. During his mid-fifties, things took a turn for the worse for Dr. Gladden, personally and professionally. Despite eating what he thought was a healthy diet and exercising regularly, he became very fatigued, to the point that he could hardly get out of bed. Stress and anxiety led to bouts of depression. He was getting burned out on traditional medicine, as it became more and more scripted, focused on compliance, and less about exploring creative and resourceful means of caring for patients. Much of his time and energy was spent fighting insurance companies for coverage for his patients instead of engaging with them for care. He was frustrated and discouraged but still wanted to help patients and build better programs to bring services to those who didn’t live close to a large hospital. He never lost sight of the bigger picture of democratizing access to healthcare and helping people overcome health challenges. Learn more about his practice at http://www.apexhhpo.com/.

The Regulatory Genocide of Banning DDT – an Interview with Dr. Bonner Cohen – Episode 286

Dec 4, 2017 1:36:45

Description:

Dr. Bonner R. Cohen is an environmental scholar and former guest who is back to talk about how the “environmental” movement to ban DDT in 226 resulted in regulatory genocide, killing millions of people. DDT was developed as a pesticide, and Rachel Carson’s book Silent Spring sparked fears that it could be a threat to wildlife, especially birds. After DDT was banned, malaria and other mosquito-carried disease spread wildly. Dr. Cohen addresses how agricultural food production has gone up, directly in relation to an increase of carbon dioxide. This increase is resulting in a greener Earth, despite what the left would have you believe. If we restrict carbon dioxide production, we restrict the ability for things to grow. They consider how a number of the left’s typical policies can be tied back to the idea of eugenics. The left wants to restrict anyone’s ability to disagree with their faulty science about what is actually good for mankind. Also on the podcast, Chuck and Mark talk about what happened when Mark went to the protest of Steve Bannon near Detroit. For some footage of the event, visit https://bluntforcetruth.com/anti-bannon-protesters-a-crowd-of-not-so-useful-idiots/. They talk about people who boycott certain products or movies because of the politics of the company or creator, such as people threatening to boycott Keurig because they advertise on Sean Hannity’s show. Chuck and Mark discuss Roy Moore and the allegations about sexual misconduct. About the guest: Bonner R. Cohen is a senior fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research, where he concentrates on energy, natural resources, and international relations. He also serves as a senior policy adviser with the Heartland Institute, senior policy analyst with the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, and as adjunct scholar at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Articles by Dr. Cohen have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Investor's Business Daily, New York Post, Washington Times, National Review, Philadelphia Inquirer, Detroit News, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Miami Herald, and dozens of other newspapers in the U.S. and Canada. He has been interviewed on Fox News, CNN, Fox Business Channel, BBC, BBC Worldwide Television, NBC, NPR, N 24 (German language news channel), Voice of Russia, and scores of radio stations in the U.S. Dr. Cohen has testified before the U.S. Senate committees on Energy & Natural Resources and Environment & Public Works, as well as the U.S. House committees on Natural Resources and Judiciary. He has spoken at conferences in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, and Bangladesh. Dr. Cohen is the author of two books, The Green Wave: Environmentalism and its Consequences  and Marshall, Mao und Chiang: Die amerikanischen Vermittlungsbemuehungen im chinesischen Buergerkrieg (Marshall, Mao and Chiang: The American Mediations Effort in the Chinese Civil War). Dr. Cohen received his B.A. from the University of Georgia and his Ph.D. – summa cum laude – from the University of Munich.

They talk about the irrationality of the gun control fantasy that the left seems to hold onto, despite the facts, and how it ties into the ways liberals are trying to transform the country. About the guest: Geoff Diehl is a State Representative from Whitman, Massachusetts whose hard work on behalf of taxpayers has saved residents across the state from having to pay billions of dollars in new taxes. In 2010, Geoff ran for state representative and won.

In light of Donna Brazile’s new tell-all book coming out, a year after the election, they run through details she has revealed about the Clinton campaign taking financial control of the DNC to drive Bernie Sanders out of the nomination.

Nov 16, 2017 1:25:11

Dean Cain is an actor, writer, producer, father and one of the rare Conservatives in Hollywood. On the podcast, he talks about many of his conservative viewpoints, including the need for term limits in Congress; there was never supposed to be a political class in this country. They consider the media’s constant attacking of Trump and how it’s also indicative of how much he’s shaking up the Washington establishment.

Bringing the Military into Politics – an Interview with Col. Rob Maness – Episode 280

Nov 7, 2017 1:25:57

Description:

Col. Rob Maness is a military and counter terrorism expert with incredible experience in both strategy and in the field. He led numerous combat operations during his career, he was in the Pentagon during the 9/11 attack, and he is currently running for the State House of Representatives in Louisiana, where he is the leading candidate currently to win the seat. In their conversation, they talk about the nation being divided when Washington, D.C. is not. Instead, Maness calls Washington the “Uni-Party” because it is led by people with similar values who are too focused on themselves rather than representing their constituents. Military leaders would be more ideal as political leaders because they tend to avoid the corruption that runs rampant through most parties. Maness explains why, though he was reluctant, he decided to run for a political seat, what he hopes to bring to the office if he wins and how our listeners can help. Because he is truly conservative and a constitutionalist, Maness hasn’t found support with party leaders. They discuss the truth about our American nuclear defenses and the method Trump is using to deter outside attacks. Also in the episode, Chuck and Mark consider the alarming rate of suicides surrounding the Clintons. If you haven’t read Mark’s article on the subject, visit https://bluntforcetruth.com/knowing-clintons-increase-odds-of-suicide-by-500/ in the Blunt Force Truth™ Trending News section. Mark and Chuck discuss how the left is changing the meaning of powerful words, referencing a protest group that everyone should be aware of, Refuse Fascism. Mark reveals the open communist managing the organization – and a pretty shocking money trail keeping it alive. They also talk about the ridiculous monument that Obama had approved – which Trump shut down once he was in office. About the guest: During his military service, Colonel Maness led numerous combat operations, including as a bomber squadron commander in Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. Colonel Maness served as an enlisted bomb disposal technician in three assignments countering terrorism before being commissioned and selected for flight training. As a Joint Chiefs of Staff operations officer he was on duty in the National Military Command Center located within the Pentagon during the September 11, 2001 attack. In the ensuing months, he directly assisted the United States national security team with creating, synchronizing, and executing the campaign plan for the global war on terrorism.  Colonel Maness authored the first theater nuclear war plan and designed decision-making tools for the Presidential nuclear decision handbook strengthening U.S. extended strategic deterrence policy in European and Pacific regions. He went on to command Kirtland Air Force Base, Albuquerque, NM, the sixth largest U.S. Air Force Base encompassing 53,000 acres and 22,000 employees, housing our nation’s most critical assets. After running for the U.S. Senate, Rob founded GatorPAC, a Federal political action committee. The PAC educates grass roots political activists on the most effective ways to influence their elected officials, get a candidate elected, or to fight for a cause. It advocates for policies that protect your liberty, fight for limited government, and ensure prosperity. He is also a founding board member at the Military Advocacy Project of Louisiana, Inc., a veteran's advocacy group committed to preventing veteran suicides and ensuring military families have equal access to benefits. As president of his local chapter of the Military Officer's Association of America, he led a team that created an annual scholarship fund for graduating high school students. Rob is a Life Member of the NRA, Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, Disabled American Veterans, and the Military Officer's Association of America.

Description:

Representative Richard Hudson from North Carolina is working to get a bill passed in Congress to allow a concealed carry permit to be recognized in all states.

They discuss this Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 (H.R. 38) and what listeners can do to help get this bill passed. Chuck and Mark also talk about DACA being unconstitutional, as Obama never had the authority to make the law, while the left twists the national narrative to demonize Trump. They discuss how Progressives have made white men a socially acceptable group to discriminate against. Mark also brings up some of the most ridiculous things Kamala Harris has been saying, including what she believes are the main functions of government. About the guest: Richard Hudson is serving his third term in the United States Congress representing North Carolina’s 8th Congressional District.

An outspoken supporter of our nation's military and veterans, Richard has received national recognition for his work to reunite military working dogs with their handlers. He is committed to caring for our veterans and has introduced bipartisan legislation to improve veterans’ access to health care and break up the bureaucracy at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Richard has the privilege of representing Fort Bragg - the largest U.S. Army installation in the world known as “the epicenter of the universe.” As the voice for this critical installation in Congress, Richard is committed to ensuring our service members are prepared for the battlefield and their families are cared for at home. As Chairman of the Agriculture Policy Group under the Republican Policy Committee, Richard focuses on conservative reforms that rein in government overreach and empower North Carolina's growers, producers and agribusiness leaders to thrive. Richard has made a name for himself as a leader who can work across the aisle to affect needed change in Washington. Despite an unprecedented level of partisan gridlock, he has had several bipartisan bills signed into law, demonstrating that hard work and bipartisan outreach can lead to results. Richard served as Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee’s Subcommittee on Transportation Security where he championed a major acquisition reform bill to save taxpayer dollars and keep the American people safe.

Senator Ted Harvey, a leader in the Conservative movement and a founding member of the Committee to Defend the President, brings his extensive experience within the political sphere to discuss the shameful trend in which Representatives in Congress are failing to stand up for America. Congress is usually fighting against the American people. Democrats seem to be suffering from a psychosis now, and Republicans have lost their backbone in defending the policies that will put Americans first.

An Interview with Tim Larkin – a Bonus Throwback Episode

Aug 24, 2017 1:01:17

Description:

On this bonus throwback episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck and Mark invited Tim Larkin to talk about self-defense. Tim Larkin is a self-protection expert, founder of Target Focus Training, where he teaches people how to identify dangerous situations and keep themselves safer against attack. When defending yourself, Larkin teaches that it helps to focus on the similarities of the human body, in the ways all people will be vulnerable. He advocates against changing people’s mindset to justifying using the tool of violence when necessary against a predator. They discuss people legally carrying guns and the false sense of security it can provide, though many people don’t know enough about how to use them effectively. Larkin teaches that our first weapon is our brain and our tools are our body. To effectively defend yourself, you need to be able to understand how to use those tools when you encounter an asocial situation. He discusses the way that society now doesn’t encourage awareness for self-defense and physical threat, in the US or in other countries – citing the travel ban that was issued against him in the UK because of his methods of teaching.

Jul 18, 2017 1:24:07

Description:

After Chuck Woolery and Mark Young discuss Mark’s heavy metal past and respond to some listener calls, they invite podcast pro Jordan Harbinger back for a guaranteed good listen. Jordan tells the stories of when he was kidnapped, not once but twice, and how he got out of those situations. He talks about what he’s learned from those experiences and how that has informed his understanding of situation awareness and the emotional brain. Mark adds to the discussion by describing the difference between the conscious and unconscious mind and what each can process. He offers some basic but very important tips for most public settings that can help you to be more aware of everything around you, keeping you and your family safer.

The Government’s Phony Economic Numbers – John Williams Breaks them Down

Jul 6, 2017 1:02:48

Description:

On this special Throwback Episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young talk to economist John Williams, who researches and analyzes the real economic figures that the government doesn’t want you to know about. The numbers we get from headlines, Wall Street, the Bureau of Labor Statistics or the White House are manipulated to manufacture a positive response from citizens. In reality, the numbers are usually much worse than are reported. Williams discusses how the government finds ways to generate certain calculations to determine policy, such as the inflation rate. The Fed justifies their actions based on faulty data. The stopgap measures taken by recent administrations to handle economic challenges fail to address any real issues pushing our nation toward bankruptcy. Based on the actual data, Williams makes some predictions on what will happen with the economy, offers advice for individuals, and talks about why he thinks the U.S. dollar will soon essentially be worthless. Walter J. Williams, known as “John,” received an A.B. in Economics, cum laude, from Dartmouth College in 1971. He was awarded a M.B.A. from Dartmouth’s Amos Tuck School of Business Administration in 1972, where he was named an Edward Tuck Scholar. During his career as a consulting economist, John has worked with individuals as well as Fortune 500 companies.

Jun 6, 2017 1:14:59

Description:

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young invite minimalist Joshua Becker onto the show to talk about his lifestyle.

He explains the difference between minimalism and frugality and brings a sensible understanding to owning what you actually need.

Joshua Becker and his young family were introduced to minimalism eight years ago during a short conversation with their neighbor. Since then, Joshua’s story and writing have inspired millions around the world to find more life by owning fewer possessions. Today, based on his thoughtful and intentional approach to minimalism, he is one of the leading voices in the modern simplicity movement reaching over 1 million readers every month.

Trump & the Entrepreneur Mindset – an Interview with Dan Sullivan of Strategic Coach® – Episode 254

May 9, 2017 1:13:32

Description:

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, after going through liberals’ greatest hits on Earth Day, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young invite Dan Sullivan, entrepreneur and creator of Strategic Coach®, on the podcast. Sullivan discusses why, when few others thought it was possible, he predicted that Donald Trump would win the 2016 Presidential election. Not only were there clues from the American public to indicate the lack of support for Hillary Clinton and an intense interest in Trump, but Sullivan explains the results in terms of mindset and the difference between individuals who are “Ones” or “Twos.” Sullivan’s expertise in the entrepreneurial world makes it easy to understand how Trump ticks, and he offers some insider insight on the type of man Trump is behind closed doors vs. what Americans interpret as he navigates his Presidency. Trump’s outsider mentality causes conflict between him and nearly every establishment functioning within Washington, D.C., but it will also be the reason for his results. They consider Progressives’ un-American belief systems and their intolerance of other ideologies, and Sullivan expands on capitalism and entrepreneurship in the future of America. Dan Sullivan is founder and president of The Strategic Coach Inc. A visionary, an innovator, and a gifted conceptual thinker, Dan has over 35 years’ experience as a highly regarded speaker, consultant, strategic planner and coach to entrepreneurial individuals and groups.

Hidden Taxes You Don’t Know You’re Paying – Episode 253

May 2, 2017 1:06:06

Description:

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young start by discussing the continued attack on conservative radio hosts, since the left believes they succeeded in taking down Bill O’Reilly. They then break down a list of federal, state and local taxes that most Americans never even realize they’re paying. These undisclosed taxes tend to be built into the cost of regular goods and services. Some of these taxes are more well-known, like gas taxes, but our research has uncovered some shocking and absurd taxes on items that many Americans buy and use every day. While some of these taxes and tariffs border on funny, Chuck and Mark consider what this deception really means for Americans.

An Interview with Joe Dan Gorman, Creator of Intellectual Froglegs – Episode 246

Mar 14, 2017 1:14:44

Description:

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young invite Joe Dan Gorman on to discuss his unique response to the mainstream media. Gorman creates online videos under the moniker Intellectual Froglegs, which aim to educate and use humor and clever editing to criticize the liberal agenda. They consider the state of the Democratic party and the delusion that it’s still in charge of the country, with their regular tantrums against Trump with an endless stream of marches and protests. Even though the American people have voted against their policies and excesses by electing Trump, most of the media are still promoting the liberal cause. Born in Dallas Texas, and raised in the hills of eastern Kentucky, Joe Dan Gorman spent most of his adult life in the southern Arizona real estate investment market, where he served as broker, investor and private consultant. He was vice-president of the largest (at the time) real estate investment company in southern Arizona. When the real estate market collapsed in 2007, Joe Dan lost everything. Within a 3-month period, Joe Dan’s Dad died, his son was taken and his livelihood collapsed. Suddenly Joe Dan went from a beautiful home in the Catalina foothills to living and working in an unfinished basement for the next six years. In 2009, Joe Dan produced his very first video on a laptop and the free Windows Movie Maker software that came with the computer. “I will follow him” was the title, and it hit over 200,000 views. Soon thereafter, he became a semi-regular on KMBZ AM- Radio in Kansas City, until he was banned after the station took a liberal slant. It was shortly after that when Joe Dan said God came into his life via the basement, and just a few months later— in 2012, Joe Dan created Intellectual Froglegs. In 2013, he was nominated for Video Blogger of the Year at CPAC in Washington DC. And now his job is Intellectual Froglegs, where he makes just enough to produce the next episode. Joe Dan has rejected corporate affiliations that require him to compromise his core Christian beliefs.

Our Mandate to Support Military Families – Episode 231

Nov 29, 2016 45:53

Description:

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young welcome Jay Lucas to talk about his mission to support the children of military personnel killed in combat by funding their education. They discuss the shameful fact that military families are often neglected. Many Americans believe that the government should provide financial support to veterans and their families. However, the families of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country are neglected by those they fought to protect. Jay Lucas and the Children of the Fallen Patriots Foundation have focused their efforts on changing that.   Jay Lucas serves as Chairman and Managing Partner of The Lucas Group, a strategy consulting firm that he founded in 1991, focused on the specialized needs of private equity investors and their portfolio companies. Previously, Jay served as Vice President and Partner of Bain & Company. He was one of the Founders of Bain's consulting practice to Leveraged Buyout Funds, and over the past twenty years has helped numerous executives, investors and management teams set their strategic direction and grow their businesses. In addition, Jay is the founder and currently serves as Managing Partner of LB Equity, a fund that invests in small growing brands in the beauty sector – skincare, haircare and cosmetics – then applies expertise to help them grow and create value.   LB Equity currently has investments in nine portfolio brands sourced from around the world and marketed in major retail channels throughout the United States. In addition to his business activities, Jay has been actively involved in politics and government.  From 1974 to 1978, he was elected and served two terms as a member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives where he was a member of the House Judiciary Committee. In 1998, Jay ran for Governor, winning the Republican primary and then serving as his party’s nominee in the general election, which he subsequently lost to the incumbent Governor. He is a strong supporter of our veterans, leading the effort in New Hampshire for “Children of the Fallen Patriots” – an organization devoted to making sure that every child who loses a parent in active military service can have their education paid for all the way through college. Thus far, Fallen Patriots has helped more than 700 surviving military children pay for their education. Jay earned his MBA from Harvard Business School, a Law degree from Harvard Law School, and a BA from Yale University. He attended Oxford University as a Marshall Scholar where he studied International Relations and Military History.

The Government’s Phony Economic Numbers –  John Williams Breaks them Down – Episode 216

Aug 19, 2016 1:02:59

Description:

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young talk to economist John Williams, who researches and analyzes the real economic figures that the government doesn’t want you to know about. The numbers we get from headlines, Wall Street, the Bureau of Labor Statistics or the White House are manipulated to manufacture a positive response from citizens. In reality, the numbers are usually much worse than are reported. Williams discusses how the government finds ways to generate certain calculations to determine policy, such as the inflation rate. The Fed justifies their actions based on faulty data. The stopgap measures taken by recent administrations to handle economic challenges fail to address any real issues pushing our nation toward bankruptcy. Based on the actual data, Williams makes some predictions on what will happen with the economy, offers advice for individuals, and talks about why he thinks the U.S. dollar will soon essentially be worthless. Walter J. Williams, known as “John,” received an A.B. in Economics, cum laude, from Dartmouth College in 1971. He was awarded a M.B.A. from Dartmouth's Amos Tuck School of Business Administration in 1972, where he was named an Edward Tuck Scholar. During his career as a consulting economist, John has worked with individuals as well as Fortune 500 companies.

Aug 6, 2016 1:10:39

This Is Your Brain on Bad News – Episode 207

Jun 16, 2016 46:03

Description:

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young discuss the news, why we’re delivered disproportionately negative news stories in this age of the Internet, and why people respond most to tragic news. Mark sheds light on brain chemistry and why we’re essentially addicted to bad news. They discuss our perception of reality based on the reports we see every day, despite the statistical facts that often dispute that perception. News rarely lets those facts get in the way of a good story, though, because good news doesn’t get much attention.

Shankman is an accomplished entrepreneur who has founded a number of companies, including Help A Reporter Out (HARO). He runs Shankminds, an online community of entrepreneurial Masterminds designed to encourage each other in business and share ideas that work.

When defending yourself, Larkin teaches that it helps to focus on the similarities of the human body, in the ways all people will be vulnerable. He advocates against changing people’s mindset to justifying using the tool of violence when necessary against a predator. They discuss people legally carrying guns and the false sense of security it can provide, though many people don’t know enough about how to use them effectively. Larkin teaches that our first weapon is our brain and our tools are our body. To effectively defend yourself, you need to be able to understand how to use those tools when you encounter an asocial situation. He discusses the way that society now doesn’t encourage awareness for self-defense and physical threat, in the US or in other countries – citing the travel ban that was issued against him in the UK because of his methods of teaching.
