SORT BY Relevancy
With same-sex marriage battle lost — waiting only for the SCOTUS cymbal clap in June, wingers are pig piling on a new ploy. In numerous states, legislatures are pretending to protect religious freedom from the inevitable and fearful persecution from dem damn gays.
I'll kick around Indiana's worst-in-class blunders in trying this ruse.
POTUS hopeful, Gov. Mike Pence (R, of course) signed a bill into law that pretty much lets anyone for any reason discriminate against LGBT potential customers. Poorly disguised as protecting citizen's First Amendment rights to exercise religion, it instead is an atavistic license to ignore statutes, case law and morality.
Pence seemed to figure the Hoosier lawmakers were being oh, so clever in patterning the bill after the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Wrong there. The RFRA was yet another cowardly and ill-considered Pres. Bill Clinton effort to appease wingers.Yet Indiana's version is worse, even legislatively malignant.
I'll get into the concepts of balancing exercise of religion with both commerce and respect as required by federal law. We can be very sure Pence and his minions are having similar discussions following the nationwide blowback to Indiana's overreach.
Free speech. The First Amendment to our Constitution.
Yet, it seems as if not all free speech is equally protected.
In the name of tolerance, only certainly speech is tolerated. If you are "pro" anything American, patriotic or religious, you are now labeled "intolerant" by a group that claims we must co-exist.
Want to fly the American Flag? Show your support for our military? Defend traditional marriage? Dare to wish someone a "blessed day? Then you need to be prepared to lose your job, be investigated by the IRS, get your page shut down by Facebook and be called some of the most nasty of names by those who tell us we must "co-exist."
Want to hold a Black Mass on a college Campus? Want to bring someone on campus convicted of murdering a police officer? Want to bring a terrorist to speak at your campus? That's all protected under the First Amendment according to the left.
The caveat is that we can only have a First Amendment and co-exist as long as we conform to what liberals say is okay.
The reality is that the left prefers that the right remain "speechless."
It is time to push back against the real enemies of free speech.
Katie O'Malley, Editor at Progressive Today, joins us today to talk about the dangers facing our First Amendment, along with how PC is taking our society on a downward trajectory.
Join us for another 2-hr JamSesh with Law Expert, Rob Johnson as we tackle the awesome subject of FREE SPEECH~! One way that the Elite control the National Political Narrative is to formulate and guide public opinion by getting people to voluntarily hold their tongues. When freedom and truth is at stake, millions of Americans will STFK to "be polite" or remain silent on controversial topics "so as not to offend". MLK said that to remain silent when they ought to speak out makes cowards of men (and women).
The people who struggled, fought and died to give us the AWESOME Freedoms we enjoy today would stare in disbelief to see how we have become so self-censoring out of petty and selfish fears. This is the great test of a Great Soul: To Dissent, to Protest, to Disobey and to express one's own convictions without fear of punishment or repraisal. Indeed, the First Amendment exists for the express purpose of safeguarding those with unpopular or "Politically Incorrect" convictions.
In today's world we need Warriors of Truth who are unafraid to challenge the presumptions of PCness.

Let's TALK! Free Speech, Civil Rights and the First Amendment w/Rob Johnson
Attorney Sarah Kopel and writer/critic Bennet Pomerantz discuss the subjects of the day.
The audience should know that although Ms. Kopel is a licensed attorney, she is not offering legal advice in any capacity, is not establishing an attorney/client relationship with anyone listening to the show, and recommends that any listener of the show consult a local attorney for any legal advice they may require.
This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law.
Tonight we discuss the First Amendment right to freedom of speech. What protections are and are not afforded by the Constitution? Does this change if you are a public figure? Can other areas of law affect these rights? We will explore the words of Phil Robertson and Ted Nugent; two figures that have made controversial statements recently in regards to their own personal feelings on hot topic issues.
This will be one of our biggest shows!! We will be interviewing Real Estate Mogul, Social Activist, and publisher, Jay Morrison "aka" JayMrRealEstate!!

If you are into money, investing, and business don't miss this show!!!
Shane Krauser takes on issues that will touch you right at the core, including:
1. What does it mean to be free anyways? We talk about open and honest dialogue, but so many want to stop the dialogue when there is disagreement.
2. MSNBC's Joe Scarborugh went off on certain advocates of the Second Amendment and the founders after a nine-year old child killed a firearms instructor in Arizona. Shane and his co-hosts respond with a heavy hand pertaining to the silliness of Scarborough's argument.
3. Buckley Merrill, the chairman of the East Valley Tea Party in Mesa, Arizona, appears in studio to talk about the grassroots organizations, the problems, and their victories.
4. Government is too big, and here is the evidence.
Today's show is inspired by a piece on Charisma News concerning the misunderstanding of our First Amendment and especially that pesky establishment clause and notion of "separation of church and state". But it also comes down to something that I enjoy getting into because so much of our history is covered up, forgotten, or not brought up. More than likely unless something big happens in the news that I feel like I absolutely need to talk about, this will be a series of shows going forward, as some of the information, which is by no means all the information available, that I would like to present is very valuable and will indeed stretch over several shows. It may even hopefully stretch out into "good government God's way", as I believe if we practiced good government God's way, we wouldn't have anywhere near the messes that we have today that have built up over these many years. So buckle up and settle in for some references and examples going back hundreds of years and some going back even only 30-40 years as we take a ride down History Lane together, starting today at 4:30 PM and archived later.
