From both sides of the political aisle, all Americans should be alarmed by the bill that just passed the U.S. House of Representatives.

Dr. Jay Lehr and Tom Harris are joined by Joseph A. Morris, Chairman of the Board of The Heartland Institute, a national non-profit research and education organization that is one of the most important think-tanks in America. Mr. Morris, who is also the president of The Lincoln Legal Foundation, explains that Bill H.R.1 – For the People Act of 2021, now before the U.S. Senate, is not really for the American people at all. He discusses how H.R.1 threatens the very fabric of American democracy and is simply a political tool being used by the Democrats to bolster their chances of future electoral success.

Besides his role at Heartland, Mr. Morris practices law in Chicago, including election law, and has served for many years as a hearing officer for the Chicago Board of Elections. He presided over hearings held to determine the eligibility of both Chicago’s former mayor, Rahm Emanuel, and its current mayor, Lori Lightfoot, to be on the ballot. Mr. Morris is a former Assistant Attorney General of the United States under President Ronald Reagan.  

Join Dr. Jay Lehr, Tom Harris, and guest Joseph Morris in this week’s episode of The Other Side of the Story to learn what is really going on with H.R.1…

Americans’ Trust in Their Institutions is Failing

As examples of those in government abusing our trust, we have to ask ourselves two questions. First, do you trust those in government? Second, what are we going to do about it? These examples of the abusive power of government should encourage most Americans to action. Sadly, examples of parents standing up to abusive…

Voting for RINOs Is Not The Answer

Rick Scott is bad enough, so let’s turn to the other RINO, Marco Rubio. Rubio was a Tea Party candidate who ignored the TP once in office.

The Grim Reaper Is Knocking on the Justice Department’s Door

The Department of Justice is now showing its own serious signs of decay as it increasingly acts as the strong arm of enforcing Socialist-Marxist ideology. This atrocity could swiftly bring America to ruin! Unless soon corrected, this willful neglect of constitutional law and our Bill of Rights will produce a society without law and order—a state of hell on earth…

Trial by Media and Mob Justice in America

Trial by Media and Mob Justice in America

Attorney Mark McCloskey knows a thing or two about mob justice and joins us on Viewpoint This Sunday, along with a great panel discussion with Dr. Ron Martinelli and Attorney Stephen Joncus…

General Michael Flynn and The ReAwaken America Tour

If anyone’s life is a testament to the power of faith, it is General Michael Flynn.
