NC voter ID on trial -- listen to the highlights

North Carolina's voter ID law is on trial this week. Plaintiffs argue that it's racist, and called as a witness a professor who says ALL voter ID is suppression born of 'white rage.' I've got the highlights from the first days of testimony - including the admission that two of the plaintiffs' experts did not know the current law was sponsored by a Black Democrat.

NCAA threatens states that pass bills leftists oppose

NCAA fires a shot across the bow - warning Republican state legislatures not to adopt measures that Democrats oppose, or else the athletic organization will ban them from hosting tournaments. Also, former Gov. Pat McCrory is planning a run for US Senate, while we have two new candidates in the NC 11th Congressional District.

Major CEOs collude on how best to punish red states for enacting looser voting laws than blue states have

North Carolina's Voter ID law goes back to court, amid demagoguery over election laws proposed across America. About 100 major corporate leaders are now colluding to target Republican-led legislatures that pass laws that provide MORE voting access than Democrat-run states. Meanwhile, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter buys her fourth house and Twitter censors criticism of the self-proclaimed Marxist. Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/petekalinersho...

Facebook founder pumped millions into NC's local boards of election

The Facebook founder pumped millions of dollars into North Carolina election agencies during 2020 -- especially in counties that vote heavily for Democrats. Hayden Ludwig from the Capital Research Center joins me to explain what he found when he traced the money. Plus… there is a perfectly rational explanation for why the messaging from the Left is remarkably consistent… like it’s being coordinated. That’s because it is.

Federalizing elections is a terrible mistake Democrats intend to make

David Harsanyi, senior writer at National Review, joins me to discuss the "integrity-corroding, banana-republic attempt to override the will of states" that is House Resolution 1 (a/k/a: the "For The People Act"). Harsanyi argues that this attempt at nationalizing election law and removing safeguards protecting election integrity actually indicates how little Democrats value the "sacred act" of voting.
