Boiled Frog in Larva Butter The Roundtable Episode #7

No matter where you look, the seams of society are showing—and they’re starting to fray. From Biden’s Declaration debacle, to gamer beds, to larva butter, to Big Tech and even Big Health: our editors reconvene and prescribe red pills for all.

Biden’s Declaration of Incoherence | The Roundtable Episode 7, Segment 1, Beginning at 1:17

Obama’s former (and still unendorsed) vice president reaches Peak Biden as he fumbles the Declaration: “you know the thing!” Ryan and Matt expose the 1619 Project as a journalistic declaration of war, and we prepare for doom bingo on this Super Tuesday.

The American Mind Podcast: The Roundtable Episode #24

With the coronavirus surging again, Daddy Newsom rises to the fore as Karen-in-Chief--shutting down businesses across California, closing beaches, and banning fireworks just in time for the 4th. Meanwhile, CHAZ/CHOP is no more, scuppered after CHOP’s armed private security executed a young man.

BLM and the left continue to go unchecked, Big Tech weaponizes deregistration without oversight, and our military leaders issue renegade statements that don’t bode well, to say the least. Our editors discuss the American culture’s latest forbidden heresy and Ryan pays tribute to the great Michael Uhlmann, who singlehandedly saved the electoral college.
