Cognitive dissonance; or, How I learned to love the lie

In today's episode, I open with Joe Biden once again looking for someone else to blame for rising inflation. Remember, first he said it wasn't going to happen. Then he said it was only transitory. He had lots of letters from Nobel winning economists insisting inflation would go away with more government spending. The next… Continue reading Cognitive dissonance; or, How I learned to love the lie

Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter shows what the Left has been doing

In today's episode, I get to start with the news of Elon Musk finally taking control of Twitter. Musk, who has said from the very beginning of this story, believes freedom of speech is essential for any civilization to advance. It is the most important element for a democratic society. He is right. That's why… Continue reading Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter shows what the Left has been doing

The Ministry of Truth draws near

In this episode, I weave together several current events stories with a common strand running through them all. Leftist leaders and unhinged victims of the current mass psychosis are laser-focused on making sure The Ministry of Truth draws near. They want to censor anything that does not meet with their preapproval. They do not want… Continue reading The Ministry of Truth draws near

They got so many things wrong

In this episode I remind the audience how new media seems to always be 12 to 18 months ahead of mainstream outlets. At the start of the pandemic, any discussion over the virus being created in a lab would get you de-platformed. Discussion of gain-of-function research was dismissed as conspiracy theory. Suggesting the vaccine isn't… Continue reading They got so many things wrong

Social media is today’s digital town square

In today's episode, I do my best to tackle the notions of social media being solely a private enterprise. This is often the only argument offered as to why it's okay for "Big Tech" to de-platform voices they don't like. It's one thing if these supposedly private companies want to alienate a portion of it's… Continue reading Social media is today’s digital town square

Big Tech Censorship and the Harm Its Done

In this excerpt from my Saturday show, "Waking Up with Alan," I spend time discussing how the censoring of speech led to a campaign of disinformation from the top of public health and elected leadership. There is a growing body of evidence showing how public officials put pressure on private companies like Facebook, Twitter and… Continue reading Big Tech Censorship and the Harm Its Done
