Bernie Sanders Continues to Disappoint

Supporting Bernie Sanders in both 2016 and 2020 looks more foolish by the day. I am truly ashamed by the amount of money I gave him, the time I donated to his campaigns, and worst of all the hope I had in him.

Our Suffering is Their Choice

I’m writing this post after reading that America is sending another $675 million in weapons to Ukraine. Over the last six months, America has given Ukraine billions of dollars.

Reviewing Turning Point 911 and the War on Terror

Turning Point 911 and the War on Terror is a documentary about some of the ways 911 changed America and its government.

We are all Pawns in Their Game

As soon as Brittney Griner was arrested, she was guaranteed to be convicted and given a long sentence. She may even have been arrested so she could be convicted and sentenced.

I Would be Dead or in Prison

The verdict for this episode is: Uncle Sam isn’t always the devil. In this episode, I discuss how some on the left, whom have taught me a lot, have to stop seeing America as always wrong. Sure, America has done loads of terrible things. But America isn’t always wrong. https://media.blubrry.com/jonathansimeonepodcast/content.blubrry.com/jonathansimeonepodcast/Left_argument.mp3Podcast: Play in new window |… Continue reading I Would be Dead or in Prison
