#92 | Rep. Scott Perry

In today's American landscape, challenges both internal and external loom large, long neglected by the ruling elite. Representative Scott Perry, chairman of the House Freedom Caucus joins Kevin for a discussion on charting a path to revive the nation. Perry shares invaluable insights from his own journey, revealing how a new generation of steadfast conservatives can reignite America's vigor—from the corridors of power to grassroots initiatives—revitalizing the country from within and beyond. 

Representative Perry is the grandson of Colombian immigrants, and the son of a single mom who fled abuse and worked several jobs to survive and support her children. Scott and his family were on public assistance for several years during his youth. He was raised in a spartan home; his family went for several years with no electricity or plumbing. He worked as a fruit picker, mechanic, dock worker, draftsman, and licensed insurance agent among other jobs. In 1980, he joined the Army National Guard as a helicopter pilot, where he flew 44 combat missions and certified in almost every helicopter in the Army inventory. He served for almost 40 years, retiring in 2019 with the rank of Brigadier General. He was elected to Congress in 2013.

  • #99 | Time to Destroy the Deep State | Kevin Roberts and The Telegraph's Steven Edginton

    "Fire the bureaucrats and close the agencies!" The Telegraph’s Steven Edginton sits down with Kevin to discuss the state of conservatism in America, President Biden, the Blob, and the urgency of courageous leadership. Will the U.S. elect a president with the tenacity needed to “punch the nose” of the deep state? “We believe at Heritage that a conservative, whether it’s President Trump or someone else in the field, will replace President Biden, thank goodness, and it isn’t enough for whoever that is to govern [as a] conservative. Tactically they have to wake up every day and say, what part of the American administrative state am I going to destroy today? Not reform, not modify, not tweak, destroy; fire the bureaucrats, close agencies, end, as is my pet project, the U.S. Department of Education. “If [Republicans] don’t have the backbone like Lady Thatcher, like President Reagan, to stand up to the Blob and to destroy it, we will lose America. Every tactic has to be oriented around that goal.”

  • #98 | Billboard Chris

    Chris Elston, aka “Billboard Chris,” is the father of two girls and who decided to take a stand against gender ideology. His belief? Children should be free to be who they are — not indoctrinated to believe they were born in the wrong body. Puberty blockers are the first step in a medical pathway that brings physical harm to children. We are lied to about the effects of these drugs, and the cross-sex hormones which almost always follow. As the High Court in England laid out, children cannot give informed consent to these harmful, life-altering drugs. Our politicians refuse to listen, and our media refuse to report, so Chris has been having honest, tough conversations across North America, one person at a time.
