Why I’m No Fan of ‘Independent Voters’

Full Hour | In today’s third hour, Dom leads off the Dom Giordano Program by discussing a push in Pennsylvania to allow independent voters in Pennsylvania primaries. Giordano is not a fan of this suggestion, explaining why he is vehemently against allowing independent voters voting in a primary. Dom and Dan debate his thoughts on independent voters, with Dom suggesting that independents utilize their independence as a holier-than-thou tactic, but both agreeing that allowing independent votes in a primary would be detrimental to the electoral system. Then, Giordano takes calls from listeners offering their opinion on the topic, with one in particular suggesting a separate primary for independent voters that’s weighed into the Republican or Democratic vote. Then, Dom welcomes Carrie DelRosso, candidate for Lieutenant Governor, onto the Dom Giordano Program for the first time to introduce her to his listening audience. First, Dom asks Carrie for some information about herself, with DelRosso explaining why she’s a great candidate and why she’d do so much more for the State than current Lt. Gov. John Fedderman, telling of a landslide win that helped her secure her current seat as a State Representative. DelRosso explains her stance on criminal justice, which she prioritizes very highly due to the outrageous spike in crime playing out in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania, and the role that elected Democrats have had in leading us down this dark path.

Is The Term 'Crudite' Elitist?

Full Hour | In today’s second hour, Dom welcomes Megan Brock, mother and activist out in the Central Bucks School District, back to the Dom Giordano Program after a groundbreaking report in the National Review pointed to her and her cohorts uncovering some critical information concerning Bucks County Coronavirus guidelines. Brock explains that, after a deep dive into the metadata of files, discovered that, after County Health Director Dr. David Damsker put out his guidelines, which were less restrictive than most, their Communications Director stepped in and revised the guidelines to make them more strict. Megan Brock takes Giordano and listeners into the investigation, explaining that the guideline revision is the sole document she found ‘produced’ by the Health Department that was created by the Communications Director. Brock then explains what seems to have happened since then, with Damsker being silenced after becoming a forefront figure in propagating lesser restrictions for schools during Coronavirus. Then, Giordano reveals some concerning information behind investments made by Madeleine Dean, her husband, and the rest of the ‘JV Squad.’ Dom tells of some questionable actions involving stocks, and reminds listeners of Madeleine Dean’s involvement in a bike company that outsources to communist China. Then, Giordano takes a look at the claims of elitism directed toward Dr. Mehmet Oz, asking why that’s become one of the main strategies employed by the Fetterman campaign. Then, in Dan Time with Dom, producer Dan Borowski reveals an upcoming Fox special dedicated to finding Richard Simmons, and tells that Gwynth Paltrow has been added to the list of guest sharks on Shark Tank.

Kathy Barnette Doesn’t Want On ‘Republican Plantation,’ Hasn’t Endorsed Oz

Full Hour | Today, Dom led off the Dom Giordano Program by offering up some concerning news reported by National Review, telling that regular guest of the show, Megan Brock, has uncovered why Bucks County Health Commissioner Dr. David Damsker has been ordered to remain silent for as long as he has. After exhaustive research, Brock and other parents uncovered that Dr. Damsker, long ago, fairly early on in the pandemic, suggested less restrictive Coronavirus guidelines for schools. The County then re-issued health guidance after Dr. Damsker’s release, which called for much more strict restrictions. Brock, in her investigation, uncovered metadata that suggests that the County’s Democratic operative Communications Director re-wrote Damsker’s suggestions, calling for the more strict guidelines. Then, Giordano offers an update in the local elections playing out across Pennsylvania, offering a controversial tweet sent by Kathy Barnette alluding to her lack of support for Dr. Mehmet Oz, who beat her in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate. Then, Dom Giordano discusses a poll that suggests that pro-growth economic policy is an important factor in the upcoming election, and asks how John Fetterman could be a front-runner if that’s a top issue, while the Biden administration continues to do everything in their power to make inflation worse. Then, Dom welcomes Ian Prior back onto the Dom Giordano Program, revealing that the friend of the show who’s been involved in the school board push back is the man behind the new billboards popping up around Philadelphia, suggesting things such that violent criminals deserve our respect, a satire of ridiculous notions coming out of the Left. Prior explains the theory behind the new , explaining that he hopes to continue satirizing the ideology of the Left in hopes it wakes voters up to the insanity perpetuated by Progressives. In addition, Giordano asks Prior about a new television advertisement created by the organization, which focuses on transgendered athletes competing in Women’s sports, and Prior tells what voters should expect from the organization moving forward. (Photo by Michael M.
