And so they're able to find who can we go to to essentially get leverage over these companies.”In this episode, I sit down with Kevin Stocklin, writer and producer of "The Shadow State," an EpochTV documentary that investigates the industry of environmental, social, and corporate governance, also known as ESG.“If you're a farmer, you pretty much have to dance to their tune. And they have gone out and they've said to their farmers as a result of the ESG movement, ‘This is what we want you to do. This is how we want you to produce. These are the processes that we want you to follow if you're going to sell to us,'” says Mr. Stocklin. “It's the banking industry, it's the asset management industry, and it's the insurance industry. And if you can get these folks on board, you can control everything else.”How does the ESG mechanism work? Who are the players involved? And is there a way to push back?“We're starting to see the power that private industry has to control us in a way that, in the West at least, the governments legally can't do,” says Mr. Stocklin.He explains how ESG is both an industry and an ideology. Put simply, it is a way to use consumer money to impose a progressive agenda on the private sector in America.“Even though it's our money that's funding the whole thing, they basically are the ones that have the votes, and they're able to put pressure on companies to essentially do what they want them to do,” says Mr. Stocklin.

    "Within 12 minutes of getting my vaccine, I was on the ground. This warmth kind of took over my body. I became numb. I started shaking uncontrollably. I felt like something really bad was going on. At first, I thought maybe I'm having an anaphylactic reaction. So, the paramedics were surrounding me. I had all these people there that were taking my vitals. My vitals were extremely unstable. My blood pressure was so high, I could have stroked out. My heart rate was really high. And things went downhill from there, and I eventually was taken away by ambulance to the hospital. And that was the first of, I think, five 911 calls—five hospitalizations."At the age of eight, Angela Wulbrecht already knew she would become a nurse. A serious car crash had brought her to the emergency room, where she was treated by especially kind and compassionate medical staff, profoundly inspiring her. She has worked in the hospital system for over two decades."I was really looking forward to this vaccine coming out when the clinical trials were done and they told us they were safe and effective. I believed every single bit of that as truth. I never questioned anything, and so I rushed to go and get my vaccine," says Ms. Wulbrecht.But after suffering a severe injury from the shot, her view started to change. She received excellent medical care, but became appalled to see that others weren't getting the same. Today she works for the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation, where she advocates for her vaccine-injured patients and friends."My whole perception of these people caring for us and putting us first and putting our health and safety first was not that. And that there was maybe, potentially, greed and money and power that came before what actually was happening to us," says Ms. Wulbrecht.

And that's what has been happening so far," says Mr. Siegel.

Now, of course, there's a dozen of them in every room that you enter, because there's so much money and so much government power behind it."Jacob Siegel is senior editor at Tablet Magazine, where he published “A Guide to Understanding the Hoax of the Century: Thirteen ways of looking at disinformation,” which documents the brave new information world we find ourselves in today."They're claiming the right to all of it—that anything that goes through your mind is now something that needs to be policed for public safety and national security reasons," says Mr. Siegel.In this comprehensive two-part interview, we discuss how the concept of “disinformation” became a tool of deception, in which technocratic officials manufacture consensus and wage a “counterinsurgency”-style war on truth that has, according to Mr. Siegel, deranged our public discourse."Whatever you think of Donald Trump, it's not democratic, by any stretch of the imagination, to lead a bureaucratic, ruling-class coup against a legitimately elected president. That may be many things, but democracy it is not," says Mr. Siegel.We also discuss "cognitive infrastructure" and "predictive analysis"—Orwellian concepts that have now become standard articles of speech in the American official class."The illusion was that if only you could give the machines enough information, they could tell you what was coming next. But of course, that only works if you get rid of these silly privacy laws and these silly constitutional protections that would prevent you from feeding all the data in," says Mr. Siegel.

    “Up until early 2020, the idea that you would wear a cloth face covering to prevent giving someone else a respiratory infection or acquiring it yourself—there was no evidence to support that. But after things had been shut down for a while, there seemed to be a need to give the public something that they could believe was going to make them safer—convince them that maybe they could go out if they just wore something over their face. That was enough. That was the appearance of safety, giving them that control—the illusion of control.”In this episode, I sit down with Dr. Steven Templeton, professor of immunology at Indiana University School of Medicine and the author of a new book, “Fear of a Microbial Planet: How a Germophobic Safety Culture Makes Us Less Safe.”“It's offering people this idea that they can completely eliminate risks—for their children, for themselves,” says Dr. Templeton.Could our fear and excessive avoidance of germs and microbes actually be backfiring?

Out of Cornell's 1,700 faculty members, he is the only one openly conservative, and for over a decade has faced threats, harassment, and organized campaigns to eject him from the school."The one diversity that you will never hear implemented on campuses is diversity of viewpoint," says Mr. Jacobson.He is the founder of the Legal Insurrection blog and foundation, which exposes and takes action against DEI discrimination in higher education, medical schools, and the corporate world."When you look at these DEI statements, they not only require you to recite that you agree with this, they also want you to show how you have tailored your career to advance it," says Mr. Jacobson.We discuss the rise of critical race theory on college campuses and its spread to other institutions, and the importance of elevating the individual over group identity. We also dive into the recent Supreme Court ruling on affirmative action, and the threat of AI algorithms infused with DEI principles."Right now, we're on the cusp of this explosion of baked-in quotas through technology.

    "There was a case where Dr. He in China did some genome edits on two children—on two babies. He made two CRISPR babies. That guy went to jail, all right? Suddenly, fast forward to today: we're willing to take that risk on billions of people."Kevin McKernan worked at the Human Genome Project at MIT as manager of research and development. Today, he is the chief scientific officer and founder of Medicinal Genomics, and is researching DNA contamination in the COVID-19 genetic vaccines."There are limits on how much DNA can be in a vaccine precisely because of the concern over DNA integration," says Mr. McKernan. "What we do know is in both shots, there is residual DNA, and this DNA is either right above the regulatory limit or tenfold higher."How do the different mRNA vaccine components impact the body? What's really going on with the SB 40 monkey virus promoter that's in them? Why should we be concerned about lipid nanoparticles and DNA open reading frames? And how is synthetic mRNA fundamentally different from naturally-occurring mRNA?"Australia has different guidelines on what constitutes gene therapy, and it looks like these vaccines may, in fact, fall under that category, given the fact that there's DNA in them and they're using LNPs. And we now know that some of the DNA in there has been used and documented as a gene therapy tool," says Mr. McKernan.

You want the school to know that you do not want your child exposed to gender ideology. … You do not give your permission for your child to meet with the guidance counselor without your knowledge or with any other third party without your knowledge. And you certainly do not give permission to the school to socially transition your child,” Dr. Grossman says.

Now she's living in exile in the United States.While the Chinese regime is “putting millions of Uyghur Muslims in concentration camps, when they are also doing that to Tibetans, when they're also putting thousands of Hong Kongers in jail, they realize none of these human rights abuses comes [at] any cost … That bar for accountability keeps getting lower and lower,” Ms. Hui says.In this episode, we discuss her remarkable story, the Chinese regime's attempts to brainwash people and rewrite history, and her hopes and fears for her city.“I was fortunate enough that I experienced that golden era of Hong Kong. I got to be engaged in civil society. I [could] go to the streets and fight for my own freedom … But a lot of the young people now ... they don't get to grow up in that environment,” Ms. Hui says. “We are going to have a generation that [doesn't] know what's right or wrong.”

You're given an incentive to behave like that … So when we see influencers acting crazy, and then people sharing their transition journey, it gets more and more extreme, to the point where you have someone like Dylan Mulvaney saying that he wants to become pregnant.”Social media influencer Oli London became known for undergoing many surgeries in his quest to look like a Korean man and then, during the pandemic, a Korean woman. He was one of the first influencers to join TikTok, and he says the social media platform fueled his gender confusion.Now he's sharing his story in his new memoir “Gender Madness: One Man's Devastating Struggle with Woke Ideology and His Battle to Protect Children.”“So many kids look up to influencers more than they look up to teachers or doctors. They respect them more. So if an influencer says something—and it could be very harmful—teens will just follow it blindly, like a cult, almost like a religion.

He's a three-time presidential appointee, and among his security firm's clientele are people like Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.“When it is true fear, we get adrenaline, for example—that's the famous hormone. The less famous hormone is the brain chemical cortisol. And cortisol prepares the body for combat. It sends blood to the arms and the legs, it hardens the muscles, and it causes the blood to clot more quickly in case I'm stabbed or opened up in some way. And that's a great, wonderful resource to have. The problem is it's toxic,” Mr. de Becker says.How have governments exploited and weaponized fear in the last few years? What is it that makes a society irrational? And how can people ultimately take back power from governments?

He has played a key role in bringing the fight against Critical Race Theory into the public consciousness.“In the 1960s, the radicals of the West took that idea of cultural revolution from China, and they appropriated it and retrofitted it to fit the conditions and the politics of the West,” says Mr. Rufo. “They believe that you first have to go after a culture of a country, like the United States, and then, only then, can you change the politics of the country.”We dive into his new book, “America's Cultural Revolution: How the Radical Left Conquered Everything,” which explores how the ideology of four 20th-century thinkers profoundly impacted our institutions, and culminated in the 2020 George Floyd riots.“These are figures of death. And yet they see themselves still, despite all the evidence, as figures of life,” says Mr. Rufo. “Conservatives cannot merely retreat to private business, private life, and think that they're going to have a country that reflects their values. Conservatives have to get out of the corner.”

More people will make it, but there's less real demand for it … All subsidies and taxes turn prices into lies.”In this episode, I'm joined by Grover Norquist, founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform. In a time of soaring inflation and economic hardship, we sat down to discuss what Americans can do to legitimately reduce their taxes.“Consider moving to a state that doesn't have an income tax or that has a single-rate tax,” says Mr. Norquist. “New York City: city and state personal income tax? About 14 percent-plus. Move to Miami: state and city income tax? Zero.”How do corporate income taxes, subsidies, and bail-outs impact the economy? And what can the federal government learn from individual states about how to formulate its tax policy?“Governments shouldn't fix recessions. They should step out of the way, reduce taxes, reduce regulations, let prices reassert themselves … And as happened in 1921, and earlier ones, short recessions fix themselves quickly if everybody's allowed to reallocate their resources, their time, switch jobs, and so on. But if the government says, well, here's how we fix things—that's how we got into the problem in the first place,” says Mr. Norquist.

And that's tough,” she says. “But what I've gained is so many people coming and saying, ‘Thank you for having the courage. Thank you for raising the issue.' They've said, ‘You inspired me to ask about my equity policy. You inspired me to go into my child's school and ask to see that curriculum, and to make a public records act request if needed, if people aren't being forthcoming with the information I'm seeking. You inspired me to push back when I wasn't going to, and I hadn't in the past.'

In some cases, kids are being released to apartment buildings where dozens of other children have also been released. In other cases, there are sponsors using multiple addresses to sponsor children, she says. And in some cases, sponsors are submitting fake documentation—that no one is checking.

He was one of the key investigators of the Twitter Files, which exposed collusion between social media companies, the nonprofit sector, and the federal government to censor Americans on a mass scale.“In parallel to this censorship program, I think what they're doing—with things like shadow banning and denylisting—is they're trying to simplify controversies and reduce everybody's intellectual field of view and, in doing so, kind-of drain our will to be curious, to stand up for ourselves, [and] to think about things in a complicated way,” says Mr. Taibbi.We discuss the current state of journalism, government information operations, internet culture and addiction, and the importance of free speech and free inquiry.“All of these agencies that were once involved with counterproliferation, counterterrorism, trying to counter messaging to disaffected young Muslim men in foreign countries … they are now turning all those techniques inward on our own populations and trying to get them to believe in a different kind of political consensus,” says Mr. Taibbi.“Instead of, ‘don't join al-Qaeda,' now they're saying, ‘don't vote for Donald Trump,' or ‘don't join the Canadian trucker protests,' or ‘don't join the Yellow Vest movement.'

He and his family were fiercely loyal to the communist regime. But being on the side of economic reform and having witnessed several brutal internal purges by Kim Jong Un—including that of Kim's uncle—the family made the decision to defect.“Many people, especially top people, and even [the] general public in Pyongyang City, don't know what's happening outside Pyongyang because of the isolation of the information.

Now, they have enough nuclear weapons—and the people are still suffering from starvation,” he says.Despite the political and cultural divisions in the United States, Mr. Lee believes that it is one of the world's greatest nations in terms of its commitment to democracy and individual freedoms.“American people should respect this society, because many people in the world think that still, America is the best.

But is this really about saving the planet?“They're trying to take the animal and the soil out of our consumption model, and turn it into basically something that's grown and produced in the labs,” argues Texas Slim, founder of The Beef Initiative.The campaign against beef is just one part of a radical transformation that both our food and our health have been subjected to over the last half-century, says Texas Slim. A study in 2018 showed that 88 percent of American adults are metabolically unhealthy. What are the root causes? And how do we turn this situation around?

Instead of making it better, every new study demonstrates some new alarming outcome.”During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Mobeen Syed, also known as DrBeen, noticed there was a lack of unbiased, accessible information about both the virus and the vaccine. Using his skills as a physician and software engineer, he started making simple online medical lectures and illustrations about COVID. Today, he has over 1,000 videos and tens of millions of views on his YouTube channel.“We found that spike protein for mRNA was present in mothers' breast milk, which means the lipid nanoparticle traveled all the way to the breast tissue, and that means everywhere,” explains Dr. Syed. “Breast milk is produced when you take a cell and you take one-third of the cell and pinch it off, and that becomes milk. So whatever is inside the cell is donated to the baby. So, the mother really gives a part of her body to the baby. So now, if the mRNA is sitting in there, it actually goes in the breast milk. This was a fascinating new discovery for me.”Dr. Syed says that while he tries to focus only on the medical outcomes of the COVID-19 pandemic, rather than the associated politics, he is disturbed by the political and financial elements, and is worried that if another pandemic occurs, our response to it will be the same.“If a simple doctor like me, who is only reading the studies, can infer that the vaccine's design should change, the receptor motif should be removed so that we don't end up with anti-ACE2 antibodies, don't you think that the people who are more capable and are in this field and in this profession of virology and vaccinology—they would know it better?

Her crime? The views she held on gender ideology.“The ‘ask' by these trans activists, which I do not believe includes all trans people, or all gay people, or anything like that—this is an activist ‘ask', and the ‘ask' is to erase women. The ‘ask' is to completely change the language, change our understanding of reality, and to tell us not to believe our eyes, not to believe our senses, but to believe what we are told to believe. This is indoctrination on a mass scale,” says Emmons.Today, Emmons is the editor-in-chief of The Post Millennial and Human Events, where she writes frequently about cultural trends related to race and gender in America.“By conflating gender identity and biological sex and then—essentially because you have changed the definitions—rewriting all the laws today that have protections for women, you are changing the entire structure of society, and you're doing it by not even having to pass any laws.

He's the author of the new book, “Get Trump: The Threat to Civil Liberties, Due Process, and Our Constitutional Rule of Law.”We discuss the many cases being litigated against former President Donald Trump, what his vulnerabilities actually are, and the broader assault on civil liberties.“Justice Thurgood Marshall said the First Amendment has two sides: one, the right to speak, and two, the right to listen and the right to hear. And the right to hear is just as important as the right to speak. And so people who have been denied the right to hear have the power to bring lawsuits,” Dershowitz says.

    What happens when large swathes of society stop trying to make sense of the world themselves and simply defer to “experts”? What happens when those “experts” actually have no moral grounding or sound scientific reasoning? And what happens when young people are trained to self-censor to the point that they don't even notice that that's what they're doing?In this episode, we sit down with Thomas Harrington, senior scholar at the Brownstone Institute and author of the new book, “The Treason of the Experts: COVID and the Credentialed Class.”“There seems to be almost a perversion and a joy in making us obey and be compliant for compliance's sake,” Harrington says.We discuss what Harrington sees as the infantilization of society, the techniques of information warfare, and the cudgels of “disinformation” and “misinformation.”

    “He came to visit a home that I was renting in Karachi, and he went off for an interview. And he never came back. The man whom he was supposed to interview had set a trap for Danny. It was actually a kidnapping scheme. And Danny was never to be seen again.”In 2002, Wall Street Journal correspondent Asra Nomani was in Pakistan to investigate the Islamist ideology behind the 9/11 attacks—in defiance of State Department warnings—when her colleague, Daniel Pearl, was kidnapped by ISIS terrorists—and brutally beheaded.“That was the moment that I knew, deep in my heart, that we were in this war with this extremism. And what was that extremism defined by? It was defined by sectarianism and it was defined by the most illiberal of ideas, which is that there is a hierarchy of human value in the world,” explains Nomani. “And that's when I first confronted the fundamental idea of ‘identity' as a weapon.”Since then, Nomani has become an activist on many fronts, first as a Muslim reformer—“I, as a Muslim feminist, was declared ‘Islamophobic' because I dared to challenge the sexism within my faith and the intolerance,” she says—and now as an ardent advocate of parental rights.“They want a dumbing down of the United States of America, and that is why they came after my son's school,” says Nomani.She is the author of “Woke Army: The Red-Green Alliance That Is Destroying America's Freedom.” We discuss her book and talk liberal values, the line between free speech and character assassination, Big Tech, and soft power.“Soft power can be more damaging and can weaken a nation and a people even more than bullets or bombs,” says Nomani.

Drug companies … over the last few decades, overall, have had a negative impact on society, because of the way that they exaggerate the safety and benefits of their pharmacological products,” argues cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra.We discuss issues in the drug regulatory process, why many new drugs are simply duplicates of old ones or more harmful than beneficial, and growing evidence surrounding the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines and the harms they cause.“In my whole career, analyzing and looking at all sorts of different drugs over 20 years, I've never seen something with such poor effectiveness [and] such significant, unprecedented harms that we have rolled out to the population. It is extraordinary. And to add more insult to injury, this is now one of the most lucrative products in the history of medicine,” Dr. Malhotra says.We discuss extensive COVID-19 vaccine data released by the UK government comparing outcomes for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals, and Malhotra's concerns of accelerated coronary artery disease among vaccinated persons.What has been the cost of speaking out for Malhotra? And what is his strategy for getting these products withdrawn?
