Are Americans okay with losing freedom?

American’s seem to have forgotten their beginnings:

In Congress 04 July 1776 – …We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…


In this week’s episode, Dennis worries about Americans losing their freedom… and their common sense.  He also poses a challenging question: what happens when a society decides that security is more important than liberty?

God-Fearing Flight Attendant Asks Single Question on Internal Message Board, Gets Attacked and Cancelled by Woke Airline

Does this remind you of Orwell’s 1984? It should, Winston is worried about being turned in by the Thought Police (Today’s Wokeism). Here is a clear example of being fired for thinking the wrong Non-party line ( Orwell’s Big Brother) thought.

A former Alaska Airlines flight attendant is fighting back after being fired for wanted to have a dialogue over the company’s support the pro-LGBT Equality Act.

Lacey Smith responded to a notice on an internal company message board in which the company expressed its support for the bill, according to First Liberty Institute, which is representing Smith.

Barronelle Stutzman’s Long Obedience and the Failure of the Court

I am not an attorney so I have no clue how SCOTUS decides which cases it will hear and which ones it will turn away. One would have thought this case was a clear-cut violation of the owner’s rights. Maybe they deemed they had already settled the argument in MASTERPIECE CAKESHOP, LTD., ET AL. v. COLORADO CIVIL RIGHTS COMMISSION ET AL. But we all know the state of Colorado is still going after Mr. Phillips.

This is an excellent article on the matter.

On Friday, in an act of what can only be described as dereliction, the Supreme Court of the United States refused to hear the case of Arlene’s Flowers, Inc. vs. Washington. In refusing to hear this case, the Court has failed to bring clarity to a situation it ultimately created.

Transgender Laws?

BreakPoint Daily

On April 19th, the Biden administration filed an appeal in a case that could force “religious doctors and hospitals to perform potentially harmful gender-transition procedures against their conscience and professional medical judgment.”

Will Medical Professionals Be Forced to Perform Transgender Surgeries?


Last fall, California governor Gavin Newsom signed The Transgender Respect, Agency and Dignity Act, a bill which, among other things, would “allow incarcerated transgender, non-binary and intersex people to be housed and searched in a manner consistent with their gender identity.” Since this law went into effect back in January, in a new case of “rapid onset gender dysphoria,” over 200 prisoners have requested to be transferred from men’s prisons into those detaining women. As of April 6th, not a single request has been denied.
