Getting Back To The Business Of Healing
00:47:21

Is the COVID-19 pandemic over? The President recently declared on primetime television it was. So why is the rest of the Administration trying to walk back that statement? On Today’s episode, we will explore why all the fuss about Biden’s statement, what is really happening with the pandemic, and some of the issues we should be focusing on for true recovery.

What we do know is that we need to get back to the business of healing.  Not only physically in our bodies, but as a society and as individuals.  We’ve seen the pandemic have an enormous impact on our lives.  And regardless of how we categorize this particular stage of the pandemic, we need to start addressing some of the secondary and tertiary impacts of the pandemic.

Being Black and Conservative in America with Larry Elder
00:49:50

What happened to our goal for a colorblind society? And judging people on the content of their character, not the color of their skin? Now, we are being told that the idea of colorblindness is a form of racism. Dr. Carson welcomes Larry Elder to the show.  He is a NYT best-selling author, Epoch Times TV Host, and his latest movie, Uncle Tom II, was just recently released. Together, they discuss the origins of Marxism in the roots of organizations like BLM. Why was the “war on poverty” so harmful to minorities in the United States? And what about common sense solutions for what needs to be done to change the trajectory of our nation?  How do we fight back?

Regaining Our Communities with Ann Dorn
00:41:18

Over the last couple of years, we have seen many of our communities come under attack, plagued by drugs, organized crime, and senseless violence. But often times we do not see these stories in the mainstream media, we do not hear about the heartbreak and bloodshed that takes place all across our country on a daily basis. Ann Dorn knows this all too well. Her husband David Dorn was murdered in St. Louis as protests turned to chaos in the wake of George Floyd’s murder. We will hear her story, how it has impacted her family and community, and the great work she is doing in the aftermath of this tragedy. We’ll also answer some questions from our listeners about life and the abortion debate.

Getting Back To Our Foundational Faith with Senator Jim Demint
00:35:49

Former Senator Jim DeMint, chairman of the Conservative Partnership Institute, joins the show to talk about how this decline in faith is affecting our communities and our relationships with one another.
