Rank #1: Everyone is Racist

Podcast cover
Read more
On today's episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck and Mark dive into the controversy between the Covington Catholic High School students and a Native American activist. They also talk about the stream of violent threats through social and mainstream media directed towards these students, who are technically minors in a court of law.

Chuck and Mark move into discussing the issues caused by the liberal media misinforming citizens and people relying on late night talk show hosts for news. They chat about how, although most people see past the absurdity of it all, many are still drawn in by the "loudest voice" in today's media.

They continue today's show by discussing how we are losing certain aspects of our republic. Chuck explains why using the term "democracy" to describe our nation is both destructive to our founding principles, and a prime example of the Left controlling the terminology used by our citizens.

Next, they chat about last weekend's Women's March and why it took place. They also explain how the Women's March has been infiltrated with hate groups that are not truly in support of women's equality.

They finish out the show with the topic of President Trump's continuing fight of the Constitution and rights of American citizens. They compare how the Democratic agenda pushes for gun control while continuing to fight a border wall that will allegedly do the same.

Rank #3: Knockout at the Border – An interview with David “Nino” Rodriguez

Podcast cover
Read more
On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck and Mark talk with former heavyweight boxing champion David "Nino" Rodriguez. David shares a bit from his boxing life, but he focuses more on the crisis on our southern border and Democrats ignoring a critical issue.

They kick off the show by finding out more about David's great boxing career. As a big boxing fan, Chuck jumps right in to ask David about today's boxing world and the great history of heavyweight boxing.

Their conversation moves into discussing the southern border crisis and David's experiences from his life living on the border. David explains how the border in El Paso has changed so drastically over his lifetime, with a continuation of cartel violence. They discuss how the illegal border crossings are deeply embedded in the areas surrounding the border.

They move into discussing Francis "Beto" O'Rourke and his background. David explains how Beto grew up sheltered in El Paso and has a long shady background. David explains that much of El Paso does not like him, but he gains support by echoing what the far left wants to hear.

Chuck and Mark continue their conversation about the left denying the crisis and the crime that takes place at the border. David shares some of the crimes that happened every night before the wall was built in El Paso.

They finish up today's show by discussing the reasons that Democrats do not want the wall. David explains how the Democrats are focused on gaining the support from illegal immigrants and considers the globalist mindset embedded in their party.

More about David "Nino" Rodriguez:

Never give up and always show up. That was the early life lesson heavyweight boxer David "Nino" Rodriguez most attributes the success of his career to. Of his 36 professional bouts, he has an impressive record of 34 KOs with 24 of them being in the first round, a number that relieved Mike Tyson of his legendary first-round record.

Rodriguez was born in El Paso, Texas. He first hit the bags and began learning simple combinations at the early age of 5. At age 14 he had his first amateur fight against a Junior Olympic Champion. He was a bundle of nerves and was beaten up badly in the first round; but in the second, knocked his seasoned adversary out cold. It shocked the tournament and garnered headlines. But more than that, Rodriguez had now been given the taste of blood, which only served to further fuel his passion for the brutal but beautiful craft of boxing. The training was strict - a discipline that his life desperately needed. And he who would one day become the "Pride of the 915" had begun to succeed in turning his virtually inexpressible aggression into something greater than himself.

As Rodriguez took on more fights, he quickly drew attention by pummeling his opponents and progressively sparring veteran fighters. After contending at the amateur level for 7 years, David entered into his professional career. He beat out Manuel Alberto Pucheta by a TKO to win the WBA NABA Heavyweight Title. He defeated Owen Beck in El Paso to a sellout crowd and took the WBC Mexican Heavyweight Championship. And he crushed overmatched Byron Polley for the NABU Heavyweight Title.

Chuck and Mark start today's show by finding out more about Dr. Wacasey's practice and how his patients receive higher quality care by not relying on health insurance. Dr. Wacasey describes how insurance companies have raised the cost of healthcare due to regulations, and how insurance influences treatment decisions made by physicians.

They continue by discussing how health insurance has morphed into pre-paid medical care due to the growing premiums. Dr. Wacasey explains how certain regulations have caused Americans to become addicted to healthcare which then allows insurance companies to set prices for a patient's procedures.

In addition, Dr. Wacasey also clarifies the major differences between health "care" and health "insurance", including the ways that Obamacare has impacted both systems.

The guys continue to discuss the delay for new medications to reach patients, and the added time to be covered by insurances. Dr. Wacasey explains exactly why doctors will prescribe the most expensive version of a drug to their patients. He also discloses how and why his practice, as well as other cash-only practices, are able to get the newest medications years earlier for their patients.

Rank #20: Making New Mexico Great Again – an Interview with Dr. Gavin Clarkson

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck and Mark are joined by Dr. Gavin Clarkson. Dr. Clarkson is running in 2020 as a Republican to fill an open U.S. Senate seat in New Mexico.  

Chuck and Mark kick off the show by asking more about Gavin’s background and family. He shares how his parents are a great example of the American dream and how he learned his work ethic from them. Dr. Clarkson also shares his educational background and work experience that led up to his run for the U.S. Senate. 

They also discuss some of the policy issues in New Mexico and how the state has been impacted by some recent issues. Dr. Clarkson shares his position on some of the biggest challenges our nation faces and some of his
plans for Congress. 

More about Dr. Gavin Clarkson: 

Concerned about the lack of job opportunities for his students, Dr. Gavin Clarkson is running as a Republican to fill the open U.S. Senate. He aims to be a champion for those whose voices are not heard in the halls of Congress – for the legal immigrants like his wife, Marina, who followed the rules to become a citizen; for the victims of illegal immigrant crime; for the struggling farmers and ranchers in our rural areas, particularly those living along our unprotected border; and for those who are economically disempowered due to federal regulations and corporate welfare schemes that benefit establishment lobbyists at the expense of entrepreneurs and small businesses. 

Throughout his life, Dr. Clarkson has been an advocate for fairness, justice, and economic opportunity for all, particularly those who have been overlooked or ignored by the bi-coastal elites. Much of that drive, determination, and sense of public service comes from his upbringing.  

His father started out as an orphaned Native American kidduring the Dust Bowl days of the Great Depression who had to dig through garbage cans for food. Nevertheless, his father would always say he was broke and not poor because “Poor is a state of mind. Broke is a temporary insufficiency of cash flow.” In 1943 he joined the Navy and became the first
Native American to fly a jet, proof positive that poverty is not a life sentence. By 1963, Commander Clarkson became the senior nuclear targeting strategist at NATO headquarters in Paris. It was there he met Gavin’s mother, herself a tribal member who similarly rose up from abject poverty. She was also in the intelligence community with a top-secret security clearance. 

An enrolled member of the Choctaw Nation, Dr. Clarkson earned his MBA from Rice University and his Doctorate in Technology and Operations Management from the Harvard Business School. Dr. Clarkson is also the only doctoral graduate in the history of the Harvard Business School who has placed in a livestock show. 

While in Boston, he also chaired the board of a pro-life crisis pregnancy center and graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School, where he was the managing editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Technology and served as president of the Native American Law Students Association. Dr. Clarkson has held various university positions in Business, Law, Computer Science, and Information Systems since 1991 and has also taught at the 5th, 8th, and 12th grade levels. 

Named the nation’s “leading scholar in tribal finance” by The Financial Times, Dr. Clarkson has been cited by Bloomberg, the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today on matters of tribal finance, and rural economic development, subjects he has taught as a professor at the University of Michigan, University of Houston, University of Montana, and New Mexico State University. Dr. Clarkson has also taught courses on corporate law, entrepreneurship, and computer science and information systems. 

Most recently, Dr. Clarkson served...
