  1. I think Lynn undersells the cleverness of the Wayfair conspiracy theory and perhaps shows his political bias too much, inasmuch as he’s ascribing a base stupidity to people who believed it and tying them to conservative Republicans. The theory wasn’t as brashly stupid as shipping trafficked kids in furniture boxes. It had elements of credibility like, items that shared names with missing children being sold for extremely high prices without product details and descriptions warranting those price points. It doesn’t take a lot of Google-fu to find those details. Not quite Fair Mormon level investigative bias, but I think he loses a bit of credibility on this one.

    1. Well what Lynn stated is 100% fact, and facts don’t care about your feelings. If you don’t like being tied to ignorance and stupidity, fix it. It’s no secret that the GOP has been attacking higher education since the 90’s as being ran by “rich Jews” and not to believe the media for being ran by “rich Jews”. If you want to see the results of what “conservatism” has to offer and the result of Reaganomics and his destruction of conservatism, look at states like Mississippi, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas, etc. Children in these states are five and six grades behind children in the worse schools out of California, New York and Illinois. The rank the lowest in education, highest in poverty and much worse, the leech off the states that contribute to the economy. Kentucky has had a net negative economic contribution for 30 years. They have received nearly $500 billion in welfare benefits since 1976. Owsley County, the poorest county in the US, 70% of the population is on some form of welfare and 50% survive on Welfare alone, but vote 90% republican each and every election. The south also has the lowest age of consent laws and the highest concentration of child sex offenders. 95% of all children that will be sexually abused, molested or exploited- it will be done inside the home by a family member.

      Today right wing populism is just Fascism. That is the part of Trump. AOC and “the squad” is closer the conservatives than anyone in the GOP today. Barry Goldwater is rolling in his grave and a full blown socialist by your standards. Let’s go over the facts.

      Barry Goldwater denounced the GOP because of Reagan and said “the moment these right wing fundamentalists take over the government we are doomed”. Goldwater believed in absolute separation of church and state and anyone who even mildly professed religious nonsense was clearly unfit for service.

      Conservatism by Barry Goldwater –

      1) Abortion was a right and an absolute necessity. Even Nixon supported most abortions. In fact, in the Billy Graham and Nixon tapes, they though abortion should be legal because ya know of “the black and white thing” (white women having black babies).

      2) Goldwater supported gays in the military and gay marriage. Maximum liberty for all.

      3) Goldwater was a staunch environmentalist. He hated the idea a company could pollute our air and water and believed the government should be able to confiscate the corporation’s assets and prosecute the officers of the company.

      4) His biggest regret in life was NOT voting for the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which he did so to get support of the Dixiecrat south. He felt he paved the path or the GOP to execute the “Southern Strategy” that Nixon and Reagan followed the blueprint. Lee Atwater bragged about it.

      5) Goldwater hated religious fundamentalists as did the founding fathers. The Founding Fathers hated them so such, they wouldn’t let Massachusetts ratify the Constitution until it dropped all it’s mentions of God from it’s laws. Just a few mentions of God and Washington (who was a staunch Christian) accused the Governor of trying to run a theocracy.

      The GOP today is nothing but radical religious fundamentalists and the party of white nationalists. Nothing conservative about it. You’d call Barry Goldwater “far left”.

  2. I couldn’t finish this one. Jeffrey Epstein was most definitely a child predator so that is where I lost interest. I don’t know if everything OUR does financially is on the up and up but I do know they do not make it seem that most children are abducted and sold into sex slavery by strangers. From what I have seen there is a great emphasis on the fact that it mostly stems from a family member. I also didn’t think comparing statistics from the UN in 2016 to numbers OUR is claiming now was very effective in showing they are inflating numbers. I was quite curious to hear his findings but felt it was not an unbiased critique. If all of our news was more objective it would serve us all well!

  3. Lynn, John, thank you very much for all six episodes.

    Could you please share your sources? You say that there is a lot more Multi-Level Marketing, Investment Fraud, and Financial Fraud in Utah than in other states.

    What is a good place to get verified data on this?

    Best wishes.
