Dr. Robert Malone: The Monkeypox Scare, the Origins of Groupthink, and the Power of the ‘Heretic’

Sponsor special: Up to $1,500 of free silver on your first order for all American Thought Leaders listeners - Call 855-862-3377 or text “AMERICAN” to 6-5-5-3-2 “This biomedical industrial complex is going to make huge profits off yet another vaccine and the associated drugs. So it’s a business model. It’s a business model for media. That’s why the fear porn. It drives ratings. It drives clicks,” says mRNA vaccine pioneer Dr. Robert Malone. “There’s a bunch of things underlying this monkeypox outbreak that are, I think the gentlest term I could say is, suspicious,” says Dr. Malone. Dr. Malone popularized the concept of “mass formation” earlier this year, but this is just one of the many aspects of human psychology playing into our current societal moment. We tackle the concept of groupthink, the role it has played in the age of COVID, and how to avoid it in the future. This interview was filmed at the CPAC conference in Dallas, Texas.

Rep. Scott Perry: US Should Designate the CCP as a ‘Transnational Criminal Organization’

“We need to quit this viewpoint that they’re a strategic competitor. China and the Communist Party [see] the United States of America as their enemy. And they treat us as such. It’s time we start acting like there’s an enemy out there,” says Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. At the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas, Texas, we sat down with Perry to discuss Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent trip to Taiwan, the Chinese regime’s threats to shoot down her plane, how Beijing is exploiting America’s strategic weaknesses, and what holding the Chinese regime to account would actually look like. Perry argues that the United States should “classify and characterize the Chinese Communist Party as a transnational criminal organization.” “If you look at the evidence, everything that they do qualifies them for that,” Perry says.

Vaccination Without Parental Consent or Knowledge—Laura Sextro on California’s Orwellian COVID Bills

“We have a bill that says children must be vaccinated in order to go to school. And if their parents don’t want them to get vaccinated, then they’ll just use a bill that says that [children] as young as 12 years old, they can consent to get the vaccine themselves.” Laura Sextro is the CEO and co-founder of the Unity Project, an umbrella group that brings together organizations across America that are fighting against the vaccine mandates for children and fighting for medical freedom and parental rights. “One of the bills in California, which is AB 2098—and I think that this is probably the most egregious bill that we’re seeing —states that any doctor that goes against the COVID narrative will lose their medical license,” Sextro says.

The China Model Delusion and the West’s Useful Idiots—Former Hong Kong Apple Daily Columnist Simon Lee

“Jimmy [Lai] once told me, ‘The fight for freedom is a very lonely pursuit … You have to be prepared to be very lonely.’” Simon Lee was a successful businessman in Hong Kong and a columnist at Jimmy Lai’s Apple Daily newspaper for over a decade before he was forced to escape Hong Kong. We discuss Hong Kong’s future and the deadly illusion of “the China model.” From draconian zero-COVID lockdowns to a real estate bubble collapse worse than the 2008 financial crisis, Simon Lee breaks down what he sees hidden between the lines of Beijing’s propaganda messaging.

How Teachers Unions Exploited COVID to Grab Funds While Keeping Schools Closed—Corey DeAngelis

“You had the teachers unions lobbying the CDC to make it more difficult to reopen schools in person so that they could hold children’s education hostage to secure multiple multibillion-dollar ransom payments from the taxpayer. And it worked for them. They received about $190 billion in supposed COVID relief.” At the FreedomFest conference in Las Vegas, I sat down with Corey DeAngelis, the national director of research at the American Federation for Children and executive director of the Educational Freedom Institute. “The school system is a massive monopoly that has no incentive to spend that money wisely,” DeAngelis argues. What should education reform look like? Will other states choose to replicate Arizona’s new school choice policies?

‘This Is the Government Colluding With Big Tech’—AG Jeff Landry on the First Amendment Lawsuits He’s Leading

“What we found in what the whistleblowers put out was that the government was actually engaged—and the White House—in directly communicating with Big Tech on stories and information that they either wanted suppressed or put out,” says Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry. One of the most assertive attorney generals in the country, Landry has filed a number of lawsuits against the Biden administration over Big Tech censorship, the Biden administration’s Disinformation Governance Board, COVID mandates, illegal immigration, and election integrity.

Trafficking Survivor Eliza Bleu: How My Abuser Preyed on My Vulnerabilities

“Grooming, in my case, looked like an abuser finding out my vulnerabilities. He knew I wanted to be famous. He knew I wanted to get out of the farm life that I was growing up in.” At the FreedomFest conference in Las Vegas, I sat down with Eliza Bleu, a child sex trafficking survivor. Now she’s advocating for the many children being exploited for profit online. “Children are either being blackmailed, groomed … or extorted, sextorted to making this content, and it is probably by far the biggest threat right now when we’re talking about the sexual exploitation of children,” Bleu says.

‘The Vaccine-Injured Are Being Ignored’: Dr. Pierre Kory on Treating Vaccine Injury Syndrome and the Suppression of Early COVID Treatment

“The science is ignoring this concept of a vaccine injury syndrome and I will tell you, it is real and it is common.” Dr. Pierre Kory is one of a handful of doctors focused on treating people injured by the COVID-19 vaccines. A pulmonary and critical care physician by training, Dr. Kory and his partner have treated dozens of vaccine-injured patients since he opened his new practice in mid-February of this year. “Many of the people who come to me, they’ve been sick for a year and trying to get care,” he says. “As soon as they mentioned that the vaccine is the cause of their illness, the physicians get very upset, and they think that they’re crazy.” We discuss his new I-RECOVER treatment protocols, the attacks he’s faced, and the corrupt relationship he sees between government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry.

The Self-Destructive Madness of Our Times: Soviet-Born Satirist Konstantin Kisin

“They’re not calling you racist because they care about race or racism or eliminating racism. They’re calling you racist because it works. … It’s a tool to shut people up,” says Konstantin Kisin, a UK-based satirist, political commentator, and co-host of the TRIGGERnometry podcast. Born in Moscow during the Soviet era, Kisin is the author of the new book, “An Immigrant’s Love Letter to the West.” “The problem isn’t evil, malicious people running around who want to make things worse. The problem is people who buy into ideology that gives them permission to do terrible things in the name of the greater good,” he says.

Betsy DeVos: Why the US Department of Education Should Be Abolished

America’s current education system is antiquated, wasteful, and “bent on saving and serving itself,” argues former U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. She is one of the very few department heads to have advocated for the abolition of the agency she ran. Education gaps have only widened since the establishment of the federal Department of Education under President Jimmy Carter, she says. Two years of remote learning have now put children months, if not years behind during this pandemic. “You couple the learning losses with the mental health challenges, and you have a disaster looming,” she says. DeVos is the author of the new book, “Hostages No More: The Fight for Education Freedom and the Future of the American Child.” Tonight, she breaks down creative new approaches to schooling being adopted in states like Florida and Arizona that could soon change the game for millions of children across America.

The Hubris of the Elites and the World Economic Forum’s Radical Vision to Transform Society—Jordan Schachtel

“Within our ruling elites, the idea that personal autonomy could be important—they obviously reject that immediately. They had no concern for the rights of the individual whatsoever.” The elite ruling class is increasingly influencing media coverage and seeking to transform the way we live, argues independent journalist Jordan Schachtel. We discuss the many illogical narratives and policies that emerged around COVID-19 these last two years and the World Economic Forum’s radical vision for reorienting society. “They want to take away our rights, decide what food we eat, decide where we can travel,” he says.

Dr. Harvey Risch: Why Are Vaccinated People Getting COVID at Higher Rates Than the Unvaccinated?

“The vaccines have done damage to the immune system such that it makes people more likely to get COVID—over a longer term, not the short-term vaccine benefit period, but after that—more likely to get COVID infections, more likely to get other respiratory infections.” I sit down with Dr. Harvey Risch, professor emeritus of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health. We discuss why vaccinated individuals appear to be getting COVID-19 infections at higher rates than the unvaccinated, and how much of our policies over the last two years were based on flawed science—from lockdowns to the vaccine rollout for children. We also reflect on the recent passing of Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, who pioneered the use of early COVID treatments. Doctors all over the country are now prescribing these sorts of treatments—mostly quietly, for fear of losing their medical licenses. “I’m sure by now, there’s a quarter of a million Americans who have been treated successfully with these medications. They know that they were treated with these things. And they worked,” Dr. Risch says.

Genetic COVID Vaccines May Damage Children’s Innate Immunity—Dr. Paul Alexander

Sponsor special: Up to $1,500 of free silver on your first order for all American Thought Leaders listeners - Call 855-862-3377 or text “AMERICAN” to 6-5-5-3-2 "The data was so profound that the UK decided to stop reporting at the end of March. … The infection rates in vaccinated persons, particularly after the second and third dose, were skyrocketing,” said Dr. Paul Alexander, an expert in evidence-based medicine, research methodology, and clinical epidemiology. He served in the Trump administration as a COVID policy adviser. The genetic vaccines for COVID-19 are ineffective against Omicron and newer variants, Dr. Alexander says. Furthermore, data increasingly suggests that vaccinated and boosted individuals are more likely to be infected by COVID-19 than unvaccinated individuals. Why would that be the case? Dr. Alexander says he’s also becoming increasingly concerned about how the genetic COVID-19 vaccines not only have risks of myocarditis, pericarditis, and other documented side effects, but may also damage the innate immunity that children have. In this episode, Dr. Alexander breaks down the concept of innate immunity, something different from the commonly heard term “natural immunity” that results from prior COVID-19 infection. Dr. Alexander argues our vaccination policies may actually be subverting this innate defense system that children have—against not just COVID-19, but other pathogens.

Calvin Robinson, Newly Ordained Minister: Churches Are Going Woke

“They’re always looking for the superficial diversity of skin color. They want more brown faces that think like them. And because I was a brown face that didn’t think like them, they ignored their own ideology—this whole idea that we need to be listening to more ethnic minority voices.” Calvin Robinson is a UK-based Anglican deacon and political commentator. He was barred from becoming a deacon in the Church of England because of his conservative political views and opposition to critical race theory, he says. How has woke ideology gained a foothold in churches? And what is the significance of Boris Johnson’s recent resignation?

The Deadliest Ideology of the 20th Century—Elizabeth Spalding on First US Museum Honoring Victims of Communism

"Communism is premised on the state. And the state is above all. The Party is above all. There’s no transcendent truth. … Everything must serve or be made to serve the state. … So it means all life is cheap.” Elizabeth Spalding is the founding director of the new Victims of Communism Museum in Washington, D.C. It’s the first museum in America honoring the over 100 million people killed by communism in the last century, as well as the millions more who continue to suffer under communist dictatorships to this day. What is it like to live in a communist country? And what lessons can we learn from those who chose to resist? Spalding is also the vice chairman of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation.

Corruption in American Education Is Empowering Communist China—Heritage President Kevin Roberts

“Our policymakers, our school board officials, our superintendents, and our governors have the future of those kids in their hands. And they abuse that,” says Kevin Roberts, president of the Heritage Foundation, a top conservative American think tank. After months of missed schooling during this pandemic, American children are woefully behind. And public schools are pouring resources into teaching kids about race and gender, instead of excellence in basic subjects like reading and writing, he says. In this episode, we look at how Roberts is shifting Heritage’s focus. We discuss education reform, the overturning of Roe v. Wade, and how the Chinese Communist Party has subverted the American system. “We need to wake up and recognize this threat has been in our backyard—literally—because of our own freedom … We have to confront this great threat or all of the other policies we’re working on could be for naught.” Follow EpochTV on social media: Twitter: https://twitter.com/EpochTVus Rumble: https://rumble.com/c/EpochTV Truth Social: https://truthsocial.com/@EpochTV Gettr: https://gettr.com/user/epochtv Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EpochTVus Gab: https://gab.com/EpochTV Telegram: https://t.me/EpochTV

Former Asst. Secretary of State David Stilwell: The China Diplomacy Trap, Dangerous Aerial Intercepts, and Xi Jinping’s COVID Paranoia

Aaron Sibarium: Elite Law Schools Are Going Woke

“The whole premise of the American legal system is that everyone—no matter how unpopular—deserves legal representation. John Adams famously defended the British soldiers accused of the Boston Massacre. And he said it was one of the greatest things he ever did for the fledgling Republic that he helped found. And that ethos is just not there to the same degree today.” Was the Supreme Court draft ruling leak indicative of a broader shift in America’s legal institutions? I sit down with Aaron Sibarium, a writer for the Washington Free Beacon and the former opinion editor of Yale Daily News. He’s been researching how law schools have been impacted by woke ideology. “Law schools have, for many years, been graduating the sorts of people who believe that long-standing legal norms perpetuate oppression and that we are justified in suspending them in order to solve various moral emergencies,” Sibarium says.

It’s a little bit of cruelty, a little bit of inequality, a little bit of discrimination, a little bit of masking children so they can’t breathe, a little bit of accepting the sacrifices of people that we don’t sacrifice back for, a little bit of complete alienation of the classes from one another … just an injection, just another injection, just losing your job. … And now a CCP-style cruelty is something that we tolerate.” I sit down with author and columnist Naomi Wolf, author of “The Bodies of Others: The New Authoritarians, COVID-19 and the War Against the Human.” Vaccine passports are just one part of a broader new digital tyranny we are facing, argues Naomi Wolf. “These technocratic elites really do believe that they can order the world better than you and I and that they have the right to.” Follow EpochTV on social media: Twitter: https://twitter.com/EpochTVus Rumble: https://rumble.com/c/EpochTV Truth Social: https://truthsocial.com/@EpochTV Gettr: https://gettr.com/user/epochtv Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EpochTVus Gab: https://gab.com/EpochTV Telegram: https://t.me/EpochTV

Gigi Foster: Did Our Pandemic Policies Kill More People Than They Saved?

“How many people would you be willing to kill in order to save one from COVID? That is essentially the trade-off. That’s the kind of question we should have been asking.” As any economist will tell you: with every action, there is a cost. Yet few seemed to think about the fact that COVID policies could be more deadly than the virus itself, says Gigi Foster, a professor at the University of New South Wales’ School of Economics and co-author of “The Great Covid Panic: What Happened, Why, and What To Do Next.” From skipped cancer screenings to impeded speech development in toddlers to growing social inequality, when we add it all up, what price did we pay?

In fact, I think it’s basically a biological catastrophe on our hands,” says Dr. Peter McCullough, an internist, cardiologist, epidemiologist, and leading expert on COVID-19 treatment. In this episode, we sit down with Dr. McCullough and author John Leake, co-authors of “The Courage to Face COVID-19: Preventing Hospitalization and Death While Battling the Bio-Pharmaceutical Complex.” Why is much of the world’s public health apparatus fixated on mass vaccination, even now? Is monkeypox really a threat? Or is something else going on?

Warren Farrell: Absent Fathers Big Factor in Mass Shootings

“There have been six mass [school] shootings that have killed more than 10 people … All six of them have been done by boys who have been dad-deprived—from Sandy Hook right on through to the Texas shooting,” says Warren Farrell, author of “The Boy Crisis: Why Our Boys Are Struggling and What We Can Do About It.” The recent horrific Uvalde, Texas school shooting has prompted heated debate about gun control, school safety, and mental illness. But few are zeroing in on the importance of a father presence, Farrell argues. The absence of an involved father is “the single biggest predictor of suicide… [and] one of the biggest causes of mental illness in boys and drug addictions in boys,” Farrell says.
