Episode 51 – Healthcare "Margins" and Big Brother in the Exam Room - with Twila Brase

 

Kip and Max sit down with author and President of Citizens' Council for Health Freedom Twila Brase. Healthcare is a hot-button issue that helped decide the 2018 election. But are we actually talking about the right things that are broken in our healthcare system. Twila helps break down where the costs come from, how old decrees have laid the groundwork for our system, and what must be done to solve it.

They also discuss Twila's new book, "Big Brother in the Exam Room" which exposes how HIPAA data is being weaponized against both the patient and the doctor from on high.

There are many points within this episode that may make you shake your head. But you DON'T want to miss Twila's recommendation to "Save the World."

Episode 46 - An Interview with Mark Blaxill, Author - On Vaccines and Autism

Episode 46 - An Interview with Mark Blaxill, Author - On Vaccines and Autism

 

Max sits down with Mark Blaxill, an author, businessman, and researcher, to discuss his work in autism research - specifically, his work in drawing a link between vaccines and autism. This is a VERY controversial topic and we wanted to explore a counter-cultural view of the way we view western medicine, alarmingly-high autism rates, and a voice that's been marginalized within the medical community.

Mark Blaxill watched his daughter Michaela develop normally until shortly after her first birthday, when she was diagnosed with autism, in 1988. Mark has made the case in his research that there is a direct link between modern vaccination practices and schedules in several books:

 

The Age of Autism

Vaccines 2.0

Denial: How Refusing to Face the Facts about Our Autism Epidemic Hurts Children, Families, and Our Future

 

and his news website:

https://www.ageofautism.com/

 

Max fills in solo and explores these claims with Mark, his credentials and experience, and his evidence. They have a fair, evenhanded conversation, and explore multiple viewpoints - which includes several pieces of critical data from Mark, the historical success of vaccines, and the modern philosophical and political consequences of western medicine.

We hope you find this show challenging, engaging, and fair as we explore an inevitably controversial topic in multiple political circles.

Episode 45 - Message or Machine? Reflections in Minnesota, Part Two - With Nick Morgan

 

Kip and Max take another week to gather thoughts on the election. Joined by guest and chair of the MN Young Republicans, Kip and Max discuss tangible solutions to our statewide problem in Minnesota, dueling Alpha News Articles, and the raw numbers behind the DFL election success.

 

This is the first podcast where we explore the messaging issues for candidates and the party as a whole. Kip & Max offer up a few quantifiable solutions that can help in both the short term and long term for electoral success. The team also discussed the "race to the middle" versus doubling down on base issues to help win elections. Nick Morgan also takes the opportunity to talk energy policy and broad messaging tweaks to help take back the Metro.

 

Enjoy this final podcast before Thanksgiving! We're thankful for you.

Episode 43 - An Interview with Brandon Straka, Founder of the #WalkAway Campaign

 

Gay. An ex-liberal. A guy who cried after Hilary Clinton lost is now leading a mass movement of people in an exodus from a Democrat Party that's skewing further and further to the left. Identity politics, political violence, and media manipulation prompted Brandon Straka to leave liberals and create one of Social Media's most remarkable modern campaigns.

Brandon started the "#WalkAway Campaign," which allows for tens of thousands of users to submit their emotional testimonials about why they left the Democrat Party. Black, White, Gay, Straight, and everything in between - Straka's Facebook group has prompted remarkable, authentic, riveting and heart-wrenching stories of those who have been betrayed by a party that once spearheaded civil rights, freedom of speech, and equal opportunities.

Max (Kip is at Farmfest) and Brandon discuss the movement, its future, the scourge of identity politics and how to carry the momentum going forward. Brandon unveils that they have some BIG plans for the campaign coming soon and also gives us practical ways to save the world, where de-platforming and political violence is becoming the norm.

Episode 42 - LEGALIZE IT: A Recap of all things Judiciary, Richard Spencer, George Soros, and Keith Ellison

 

Kip & Max catch up after a whole THREE WEEKS off. There was a lot to catch up on, but they decided to start with issues of legal importance. They cover the Minnesota Attorney General race, the reality of George Soros in our state, and the fight for the embedded state - both at a state level and nationally. They also go off on some tangents about the similarities of white nationalism and the Nation of Islam; politics are a loop, afterall.
