Monticello Now Trashes Jefferson In His Own Home

Monticello Now Trashes Jefferson In His Own Home

July 11, 2022

In this podcast Steve recounts two of his own pilgrimages to Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and the stark differences in the treatment of Jefferson's legacy between those two visits. This accounting was spurred on by a recent New York Post article entitled, "Monticello is going woke — and trashing Thomas Jefferson’s legacy in the process." Why are Monticello's own staff and tour guides now besmirching one of our most famous Founder's, at his own home? That answer is revealed in this podcast.

The Mysterious Unpersoning of Michael Stenger by The Washington Post

The Mysterious Unpersoning of Michael Stenger by The Washington Post

July 1, 2022

In this podcast Steve not only covers the primary conspiracy theories surrounding the death of Michael Stenger — who was the Senate Sergeant at Arms on January 6th — but also what seems to be a deliberate erasure by The Washington Post of Stenger from their own website’s search engine. Was he murdered, or was it a natural death . . . and why was the mainstream press so slow to announce Stegner’s passing, considering his key position on that day when all hell broke loose at the U.S. Capitol?

Transcript of Stenger’s opening statement in the Senate hearing on February 23, 2021:

TPC Reviews the House J6 Committee’s First National Hearing

TPC Reviews the House J6 Committee’s First National Hearing

June 10, 2022

In this episode, I take a few minutes to give my initial impressions of the House of Representative's Select Committee Hearing, as presented last night to a national audience. As is usually the case in my writings and podcasts about January 6th, you'll find something with which to both agree or disagree, but it is a fair take from someone who saw that day with my own eyes and my own camera.

TPC Interviews J6 Defendant, JD Rivera

TPC Interviews J6 Defendant, JD Rivera

June 8, 2022

JD Rivera is an independent videographer/cinematographer who traveled to DC on January 6th with no other intent than to document the rally and surrounding events. When the "story" made its way to the Capitol Building, he did what any video journalist would do and followed that story. Two weeks later, JD was arrested by the FBI and charged with four misdemeanors. Rather than taking a deal -- pleading guilty to crimes he did not commit -- he has decided to go to trial, (which is scheduled for next week). One of the most interesting aspects of this interview is our detailed discussion about the differences in how the DOJ has selectively prosecuted independent journalists who covered that story. Some, like JD, were charged with crimes, others were threatened but not charged, and some have never even been contacted by the FBI. We explore "why."

JD served 10 years as a U.S. Marine, is married with six children, had his life completely upended by the aftermath of January 6th, but believes he must stand up for what's right and face a federal judge . . . knowing his freedom is on the line.

TPC Podcast - June 3, 2022

June 3, 2022

This is the most personal message I've ever shared with TPC's readers and followers. In this podcast I go into detail about my current medical situation . . . which I happen to share in common with one of our nation's Founders. I discuss our nation's opioid crisis, the renewed assault on the 2nd Amendment, (the interconnectivity of these two issues), and why we cannot lose that battle. I also tell the story of when and why I shot another man.

May 23, 2022

In Part 5, the final episode of this extensive interview, Brad gets deeper into the intent and actual motives behind the Oath Keepers' involvement on January 6th, and Steve asks him if he's holding back on his criticisms of the DOJ as the J6 legal cases continue to develop. Brad closes out by sharing what he was doing in Vietnam at the beginning of the COVID pandemic, and how he hoped to facilitate a hydroxychloroquine airlift to the United States, not knowing the political situation that was developing with that drug, back home.

Part 4 of TPC’s Interview With J6 Defense Attorney Brad Geyer

May 13, 2022

In Part 4, Brad discusses the deterioration of constitutional values within the DOJ and other federal agencies, and from his perspective as a former federal prosecutor, why he believes we have only 2 to 3 years left to reverse this trend in order to save our country. We also discuss more of the Oath Keepers case, the unidentified provocateurs who were working the west side doors of the Capitol on January 6th, and the nexus between the government's response to both J6 and the pandemic.

Part 3 of TPC’s Interview With J6 Defense Attorney Brad Geyer

Part 3 of TPC’s Interview With J6 Defense Attorney Brad Geyer

May 11, 2022

In Part 3, Steve and Brad dive headlong into many of the specifics of Oath Keeper Ken Harrelson's case, including the difficulties in attaining video evidence from the DOJ, and especially the overblown and outrageous "seditious conspiracy" charge Harrelson and eight other defendants are facing in their upcoming trials. As Harrelson's attorney, no one other than Brad Geyer can better describe the frustrations and roadblocks they are up against in adequately preparing for what will likely be the most high profile legal spectacle of 2022.

May 10, 2022

In Part Two, Steve and Brad get deep into the weeds about who might be those unidentified participants and provocateurs manipulating crowds on January 6th, and to what extent agents of the federal government might have been involved. In a totally unplanned moment, Geyer's client, Oath Keeper Ken Harrelson calls while this podcast was being recorded, and you get to listen as they spend a few minutes with him on the phone, directly from the D.C. Detention Center.
