Facebook admits they helped FBI with 2020 election

Before I get into the main topic, I do open with a reminder of what I said exactly one week ago about the request to release the affidavit, which granted to general search and seizure warrant for the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago. I said if it were to get released at all, it will be… Continue reading Facebook admits they helped FBI with 2020 election

Constitutionalism wins again and the Left has only themselves to blame

In today's episode, I open with yet another massive win for the Constitution and the First Amendment. This is huge in our lifetimes to see Justices who are interested in following the Constitution and the founding of our nation as it was written and intended. They are not legislating from the bench. In fact, what… Continue reading Constitutionalism wins again and the Left has only themselves to blame

The Ministry of Truth and Biden’s continued cognitive decline

In today's episode, I open with a look back to just before 1776. Seems an odd thing to have to do, but it seems like many people in our country forget what the Revolutionary War was all about. Prior to winning our freedom, we were subjects of King George III. At that time, all kings… Continue reading The Ministry of Truth and Biden’s continued cognitive decline

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

Musk reveals elites do not believe in freedom for all

In today's episode, we spend time speaking a little more philosophically about what the First Amendment to our Constitution really means. It is amazing to watch so many elites in media and the Democrat party reveal themselves for being anti-First Amendment. After all, how else are we supposed to interpret them in light of Elon… Continue reading Musk reveals elites do not believe in freedom for all

Criminalizing free speech and Biden’s done nothing

In this episode, I remind everyone that based on the newest language published by the Department of Homeland Security, I am likely listed as a domestic terrorist. According to them, anyone who goes online to spread mis- dis- or mal- information can sow discord or undermine the public trust in U.S. government institutions. Basically, we… Continue reading Criminalizing free speech and Biden’s done nothing

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

Trendy protests lead to choice between patriotism or NFL

Well, we thought we knew what all the kneeling was about. I mean, we were told it was about their First Amendment right to protest injustice, police violence and the unfairness experienced by some in our country. We were told it's a quiet display to show solidarity with those who have suffered social inequities. But,… Continue reading Trendy protests lead to choice between patriotism or NFL

Trump tweets once again; what could he be doing instead?

I honestly do not wake up each morning looking for reasons to defend President Trump's Twitter behavior. I already wrote a piece a few months back where I explained why I believe his tweets were about more than just being crass or silly or unpresidential. By now, I had hoped his tweet-storms would have been… Continue reading Trump tweets once again; what could he be doing instead?

Madison Did It Better

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution, as conceived by James Madison, went like this: “The civil rights of none shall be abridged on account of religious belief or worship, nor shall any national religion be established, nor shall the full and equal rights of conscience be in any manner, or on any pretext,… Continue reading Madison Did It Better

The Ivory Tower of Pisa — Welcome to PCU

The 2015-16 school year started a few months ago. It was my turn to spend a day offering my wisdom and experience in the day-to-day activities of the students. As I walked into the first classroom, I felt like I had been transformed into the role of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie, Kindergarten Cop. Everywhere I turned, it… Continue reading The Ivory Tower of Pisa — Welcome to PCU

What freedom is not

Happy birthday, America! It's been 238 years since the Declaration of Independence put a series of events in motion that forever changed the face of the world and redefined how government could be structured around the concept that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights and chief… Continue reading What freedom is not
