The Left have a tactic to confuse and distract that is as old as deceit itself. To control the mind one only has to control the words.
Step by step the Left is not only redefining the discourse of society but the very way we think. Changing the term “convicted felons” to “justice-involved individuals” is just a recent example (this one from San Francisco) of how changing the words we use to describe something changes our perception of that thing.
But a rose by any other name would smell as sweet and, so too, a criminal by any other name is still a criminal regardless of the efforts of those would have us think otherwise.

As the popularized phrase goes, sometimes we tend to be ‘blinded by science’ and draw conclusions that do not concur with scientific principles, or that at least, do not consider the very real risks and consequences of already known scientific principles.
This may be the case with regard to optimistic projections concerning proposed space ventures predicted to be underway by the mid-2020s. Two proposals immediately come to mind: the earth-orbiting Von Braun Space Station and planned manned voyages to the planet Mars.
Upon closer examination, it would not be unreasonable to conclude that perhaps we have not considered the gravity of these proposals as they may actually affect those who would consider such opportunities to venture into space. Indeed, the nature of gravity itself could become one of mankind’s major obstacles with respect to fulfilling any dreams of venturing into space.
Gravity is a phenomenon little understood, even though it is a ‘force’ perpetually experienced by all living creatures who inhabit planet Earth. From the direct effects on the human body when not subjected to earth’s full gravitational field, to the very nature of gravity’s role within the structure of the universe, a closer look the gravity of our situation certainly appears to be in order.Continue reading »
Comments Off on 586 – Resurrection – Danielle’s story with Guests: Danielle Metz and Bob Metz
One year ago today (Dec 13, 2017), Danielle Metz was rushed to hospital by ambulance and not expected to survive the day. What preceded and followed that event is a personal story that many may find uncomfortable, but as we often remind ourselves, some issues are black and white and visit us right at our very doorstep. Like life and death.
For reasons revealed in today’s broadcast, Danielle’s story has not been made public till now. Even as a growing number of fans of The Danielle Metz Show were beginning to enjoy regular releases of her then just-launched podcast, little would they have guessed that Danielle was near death in the hospital intensive care unit for two months, to be followed by further hospitalization and recovery. As Danielle was sharing the joys of celebrating the Christmas season on her Christmas Day podcast with Robert, in reality on Christmas Day 2017 she was still deep in a coma on full life support, not expected to survive her ordeal.
How all this came to pass is the subject of today’s one-year-later special broadcast, hosted by Robert Vaughan, with Danielle Metz and Bob Metz as today’s show guests.
From Danielle’s personal experience of ‘clinical death’ to the general value of life, also included in our discussion is a warning about a health condition known as sepsis, which causes what most know as ‘septic shock.’ The odds of surviving sepsis are extremely low, and even when survival is no longer threatened, full recovery can be another matter entirely.
The fact that Danielle is with us today to share her experience is itself a welcome spoiler to a story that has so far thankfully turned out Just Right.
Comments Off on DMS 036 – The Acosting of the American mind
“What flummoxes me is not the incident itself, but the complete denial by the left-wing media that it ever happened – even as they are playing video demonstrating that it actually did!” marvels Danielle in today’s conversation with Robert.
Only by denying the direct evidence of one’s senses can it be argued that CNN’s Jim Acosta “did not touch” the intern working at the White House media conference on November 7. Yet shamelessly, that’s exactly what the media on the Left chose to do. CNN reported the incident by not including the relevant incident in its visual account, while verbally reporting that it never happened.
The ‘touching’ incident was the last in a string of incidents eventually resulting in the White House revoking Acosta’s press pass. Amazingly, a subsequent court decision (by a Trump-appointed judge citing ‘press freedom’ issues) ruled that Acosta’s White House pass must be reinstated! (Since no one is preventing Acosta from writing or broadcasting whatever he wishes, the court’s rationalization merely provides more evidence of non sequitur Leftist thinking in this affair.)
But the real accosting of the American mind has taken the form of Leftist media denials so blatant that Danielle continues to marvel at how “I honestly have so many words of bafflement that I can’t channel them all coherently.” The media is committing suicide by actively “destroying its own credibility,” adds Robert.Continue reading »
What can one adequately say when ‘mainstream’ media like ABC News, NBC Nightly News, The View, The Guardian, and others reported that Elizabeth Warren had ‘proof of her Native American Heritage’ – when the real ‘proof’ provided by Warren’s DNA test was exactly the opposite?
What was ‘proven’ by a DNA test is that Warren is “whiter than white,” observes Danielle in her conversation with Robert. “Where is the ‘white privilege’ when it seems more beneficial to claim heritage to anything other than European descent?”
In response, Robert notes that the racial ‘privilege’ in this case was actually attached to being a member of the Native American group with which Warren attempted to identify. “And the mainstream media (is) complicit in this obvious lie that she is of native descent!”
The degree of dishonesty and the detailed deception to which Warren stooped was only to be outdone by the media that accepted DNA results reflecting a 1/1024 native/white DNA ratio as ‘proof’ that she was Native American.Continue reading »
“Attacking Kanye West for his color is despicable,” declares Robert, in conversation with Danielle about CNN’s reactions to his recent appearance at the White House. “When it comes to CNN, it’s all racism, all the time,” affirms Danielle.
Once motivated by racism, a blatant denial of reality becomes a necessity. Sure enough, that is exactly what CNN’s news commentaries (among others) have demonstrated.
Worse, CNN panelists Bakari Sellers, Tara Setmayer and Don Lemon shamelessly displayed their racist prejudice as they chastised West for being an example of “what happens when Negroes don’t read,” and of being “the token Negro of the Trump administration,” and for “embarrassing himself… in front of all these white people.”
Meanwhile, on MSNBC, viewers could watch racist Michael Eric Dyson (Georgetown University) describe West’s comments as “white supremacy by ventriloquism. A black mouth is moving but white racist ideals are flowing from Kanye West’s mouth.” Continue reading »
Prove it! That’s what the feedback to our show last week demanded. Our conclusion that there is no conflict or contradiction between determinism, free will, and morality ‘proved’ to be point of discomfort for some.
A demand for proof is understandable and necessary ‘Proof’ verifies a fact, theory, or argument that may lead to (or perhaps prevent) action, and thus, have consequences.
It is important to bear in mind that in order for something to be susceptible to a test of ‘proof’ – whether concerning the existence of an object or the validity of an idea – it must also be capable of being proven false. If it is not possible to prove it false, then ‘proving’ its validity becomes a pointless exercise.
All ‘proofs,’ whether in mathematics or in logic, philosophically are best categorized within philosophy’s branch of epistemology – where it is actually possible for theories and assertions to be ‘proven’ true or false – ironically validated against the ‘unprovable’ but axiomatic reality of existence.Continue reading »
