The titans of media have been exposed of late as being less than impartial. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at Katie Couric’s selective editing, Facebook’s censoring of conservative posts, and a slew of online giants pledging to combat hate speech under the guise of thwarting terror plots on social media. Eliminating or censoring any speech in favor of selected narratives violates free speech and should be opposed.
What is the difference between a constitutional convention and a convention of states? Constitutional Law Attorney Jenna Ellis (www.jennaellis.org) rejoins the program to discuss Article V of the Constitution and to assert that the only comprehensive change to our system of government will need to come from the states because it will not come from Washington.
Definitions found within laws and regulations are being changed, forcing businesses to deal with unnecessary change. Seton Motley (www.lessgovernment.org), President of Less Government, examines how laws are being changed by faceless unaccountable bureaucrats to mean things the founders never intended. Ideologies should never trump nor change the law.
Switching gears, we take a look at our history from the 1960s in regards to the Vietnam War and events leading up to it. Dr. Geoff Shaw (www.counterinsurgency.com), head of Alexandrian Defense Group, recounts the life of Ngo Dinh Diem, President of Vietnam and shows how America’s involvement in his assassination led to a protracted and costly war.
John’s quote of the week:
“The moment you prohibit all guns in this country, a vibrant black market in guns would erupt from Mexico, and we would see thousands of arms moving across our border – just like the drugs do. No matter how much you try to block this, criminals will always be able to find a way on the street to get the weapons that they need.”
