Hi Mark, do you think that Elon Musk's purchase of Twitter will have any kind of impact on the free speech front? I note, interestingly, that Facebook stock is plummeting. What do you make of that? Isn't the timing weird?

Hi Mark, this week the New York Supreme Court struck down NYC's vaccine mandate for public and private employees. How does this jibe with the US Supreme Court's decision earlier this year that allowed government vaccine mandates for federal workers to stand? That includes healthcare workers and other private sector employees whose employer has contracts with the federal government or receives federal funds. SCOTUS has refused to hear state's challenges to federal mandates but can they continue to allow the government to compel an ineffective and potentially harmful vaccine as a condition of employment for federal/quasi-federal workers?

I can't help but notice that there has been a 'narrative shift' on a number of topics lately, the closing of schools during the pandemic and the 'lab-leak' theory to name two, even Jon Stewart has admitted on his podcast that the Hunter Biden/Burisma deal was 'corruption, straight up'. Has this shift occurred because of the midterm elections or because Elon Musk has taken over Twitter and the Establishment narrative was going to crumble anyway, on a whole host of things, and so they figured they would try and get out ahead of it? Thanks and hope you can continue with your GB News show for a while longer, Ofcom be damned.

I can't wait to watch your show on GBNews each day, especially when you have Eva Vlaardingerbroek on. Dutch farmers were my ancestors, so her views resonate with me. It's incomprehensible to me that the government of the Netherlands would behave in such a way. Why?

Mark – Few people frame the current issues of our time in terms of the true underlying motives of the actors. Most of the current issues are really the same thing: the elites attempting to trick the poor into doing something good for the elites. For example, the no-oil PhD student on your GB News show last week wants a future free of oil because he believes that future is good for him. And he's going to get it by duping the poor into becoming poorer today. At its most basic, he's a rich kid taking wealth from the poor. I think Boris and King Charles commit the same sin with Net Zero. They want a pristine future for their kids. It's not about helping the planet. It's about helping them. These issues are a primitive battle for wealth. How do you expose the ruse?

We now know that the Biden administration actively pressures social media companies to suppress voices that they do not agree with, as was exposed in Alex Berenson's discovery resulting from his lawsuit against Twitter (the Biden administration pressured Twitter to ban him). This use of private companies to suppress speech that the government does not approve of is quite disturbing. It seems that the west really is in the late stages of capitalism, degrading to fascism.
People like Mann are using the courts (I would say colluding with the courts) to suppress the speech of anyone that disagrees on the Climate issue.
You won what increasingly feels like a short term victory in Canada against suppression of speech, but it seems to be going the other way.
Is this just the ebb and flow of society, moving from freedom to totalitarianism (I would argue the more natural state of mankind) and then, in a few centuries, hopefully back towards freedom, or is there something else going on?
Thanks for all of your content. Love being a member of the club.

As the continuing dialogue of comparison between Constitution waving American Republicanism and Westminster Constitutional Monarchy meanders away from the proud moments of Her Majesty's Funeral and toward the hard cold reality of Globalist Despotism it's important to remind ourselves that we are as free as we wish to be. If we must put our life on the line to claim that freedom to teach the younger generation what liberty is worth, than we will do what we must. I can't shake my faith, perhaps it is cultural ignorance of true famine and rebellion, but I have nothing but my faith in God so I'm playing the hand I'm dealt. I was raised in a corrupt lawless Upstate NY City which manifested true libertarian despotism on the streets. I've witnessed local "strong men" who lorded over construction crews of urchins who worked for little more than beer and drugs, who could extort and manage an apartment building as a middleman "Superintendant" collecting rent, yet protecting property and vehicles from the local ne'er do wells YMCA residents from whom foodstamps could be purchased at 50 cents on the dollar. Ultimately, there is no freedom that you won't have to fight for.
I currently live in NY-22, the new NY-22 that isn't as close to the St. Lawrence Seaway as it is to the Erie Canal, this is the district you often refer to that was the last to declare its representative who we have now subsequentially lost to redistricting for this present Election cycle. Despotism has many forms, but takes hold faster than it takes a domestic sow to become a feral hog. Happy Friday to you and all of Clubland Members. Do you have an opinion on the quiet hoax of libertarianism?

I've read with some interest that John Cleese will be getting his own show on GB News and that he is constantly complaining about cancel culture and his numerous wives. Apparently, it was different when he mocked British culture. I also listen to Naomi Wolfe when you have her on. Aside from QR codes and the jaba, jaba, jaba she is still a committed earth tone lefty. I also gather she is somewhat confused that all of her fellow travelers who at one time hung on her every word have turned against her.
This is the intolerant world they both helped create. They should both be thrilled. Or is it different now that they are on the receiving end.
See you at 3!

Following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, we responded by doubling the level of Muslim immigration, begged forgiveness for our Islamophobia, and created a massive surveillance state, which we almost immediately turned on our own population (especially those whose political views are not aligned with the ruling class). After China unleashed the COVID-19 virus on the world (whether intentional or not), we responded by locking down and destroying our own economy, forced an experimental, dangerous, and largely ineffective vaccine ("vaccine") on virtually the entire population, and irreparably harmed the emotional and educational wellbeing of our children – yet we allowed China to avoid any and all consequences (in fact, we have rewarded them in many ways). In all of recorded history, has there ever been a society that has responded to such massive, direct attacks by turning on its own people, as we have, rather than going after the perpetrators? Is there any explanation for such suicidal behavior??

We were treated to video this past week of Joe Biden in upstate New York at the airport conversing with Chuck Schumer on the tarmac. For some reason, even the left-wing lunatic media were broadcasting this with subtitles of what they were saying because the jet engines drowned out the audio. Reportedly, Schumer says to Biden something to the effect that "we" are in trouble in Pennsylvania presumably referring to the Senate race. Why would Schumer say something like that to Biden when Schumer is well aware Biden cannot comprehend what he was talking about because of his diminished cognitive abilities? Was this staged in conjunction with the media for some hard to figure out reason?

I am an American and having difficulty with my own patriotism towards my country. You have documented the corruption and ruin of the USA better than anyone. I grew up with great pride in the USA and its institutions. Now, I often feel guilty about disliking my country because of its ruling class. I don't like it, but I feel this is the path I am being pushed towards. How do you deal with your similar emotions about the USA?
