Heidi Harris Show Podcast #54: Ralph Peters on Leaving Fox News, Russia, and the Ingratitude of Americans

Lt. Col Ralph Peters recently left Fox News after 10 years as a Strategic Analyst, and his memo to Fox colleagues was leaked to the public. He has major concerns (as do I) about the fact that Fox slobbers all over Trump, never questioning anything he does. On the other hand, of course, CNN and MSNBC do nothing but trash Trump. Somewhere in the middle is the truth.

Ralph is a former Army Intel officer and award winning author of many historical novels, and he also lets loose on Americans’ ingratitude and dissatisfaction with the world. Always a privilege to get his perspective. (We spoke BEFORE Trump’s attack on Syria)

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #53: Is Podcasting Hurting Radio? Tips for great podcasting.

Are you tired of hearing the Drudge Report read to you on commercial radio? So am I. How is podcasting affecting people’s listening habits, and what if you’re thinking about dong a podcast?

My guest is Perry Michael Simon, veteran broadcaster, podcaster and VP of News/Talk/Sports at from allaccess.com, and he shares great tips on how to do it well, and how to stand out from the pack.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #52: Does it Matter if Leaders are Flawed?

We should expect our leaders to have values and behave themselves so we don’t all get distracted by “no knock” raids on law offices. President Trump has put himself in this position, although he’s certainly not the only elected official who’s allowed Mr. Johnson to make decisions for him.

It doesn’t make me a “closet lib” or a “sellout” because I talk about the genuine threat the Stormy Daniels affair poses. If we start to live in a nation that doesn’t allow criticism of our so-called leaders, we’re in bigger trouble than we realize.

President Eisenhower said it best: “Never let yourself be persuaded that any one Great Man, any one leader, is necessary to the salvation of America. When America consists of one leader and 158 million followers, it will no longer be America.”

Character always matters, no matter who you are or what you do. But if Trump gets tossed, we have Pence!!! Yippee!

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #51: Stand UP! Even When Wussing Out is Easier.

People these days are so eager to back up and wuss out when there’s the slightest blowback, and that is not what God calls us to do.

Parents these days don’t want to admit their little angels are off track, so they refuse to confront wrong behavior. Maybe they can’t accept that their kids are normal sinners like the rest of us, or maybe they think it’s a reflection on them, but we all owe it to our kids to tell them what God tells us – that He loves us regardless, but that we’re off track.

Don’t give in and don’t give up. Take a stand, and at least you’ll have your integrity, which is worth more than any job title or bag of gold.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #50: What is This Christian Privilege Stuff?

George Washington University this week held a seminar addressing “How to Identify Christian Privilege” and how to make people feel guilty about it. Of course he’s an openly gay guy who clearly has a problem with Christian values.

He doesn’t appreciate that the fact that our country being founded on Christian values, and religious freedom, even though we’re not a theocracy, is the reason he is allowed to “love” whoever he chooses to without being thrown off a building.

 

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #49: What Data are Schools Gathering on your Child?

We hear about the vast amount of data Facebook, Google and others are gathering on us, but we willingly give that up. But what about kids, whose information is being gathered by schools without anyone’s knowledge? Parent and educator John Eppolito, from Protect Nevada Children, has some insight on what’s being gathered and what can be done to stop it.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #48: Apologies Never Appease

Radio and Fox News TV host Laura Ingraham’s weak apology has done nothing but embolden the David Hogg Twitter Brigade, and make things worse. She’s lost even MORE sponsors since her apology.

When you apologize, in their eyes, you confirm that you were wrong.

If the Hogg Brigade succeeds in getting her TV show cancelled, they’ll go after her radio show. As a radio or TV host, you’re not obligated to have any real standards, but if you don’t, you’re just another guy or girl on radio who will be forgotten the day you’re gone.

Even your detractors will have grudging respect for you when you don’t back down. The difference between opinions and principles is simple: Having PRINCIPLES may actually cost you.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #47: Laura Ingraham, David Hogg, and Twitter Terrorism

My book is prescient. I predicted ALL of this, and now Laura Ingraham has been forced to APOLOGIZE to this gun grabbing teenager, David Hogg, for merely needling him about not getting into several colleges. That was ALL she did!

Advertisers are leaving her show in droves, because he and his twitter army have called for a boycott. But her apology won’t appease them. It never does. That’s why I don’t/won’t/never have done it.

Wimpy advertisers and emboldened lefties will be the doom of conservative talk.

There was a time when any ADULT could chastise a child and it was considered acceptable. Now if you question them, they want your head on a stick. We’re in trouble, folks.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #46 – The BUS is at Fault Because a Rider Went Under it? And Heidi was Right About pot Money!

From what I can tell, this tragic accident is NOT the fault of the bus company for designing a bus that isn’t “aerodynamic”. The doctor made a mistake, and wound up under the bus. Juries react emotionally, (which personal injury lawyers depend on) and decide someone must pay when the kids are crying. Sometimes that someone is the person who made the mistake, not the someone with the money who isn’t at fault!

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #45 – Stormy Daniels and March for Our Lives

Do we really care if this stripper had an affair with Trump? At this point, most people don’t. I’m not defending cheating, because I think it’s shameful, but honestly, no one who supports Trump will care, and she’s as guilty as he is.

The March for Our Lives was held over the weekend, and as usual, the kids missed what actually could make a difference. Violent video games, no dads in the home, a lack of objective parents who report kids with mental issues and bullying in schools are far more responsible than any guns. Remember that most of these kids who shoot up schools have been treated badly by other kids at school, and this is their revenge.
