Thursday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Sacred Fire of Liberty!
It’s that time of the week where we get to explore the political healing that this country needs so desperately! Jonathan Emord is back to help us dissect the latest political news that’s fit to print:
Cheryl Chumley is online opinion editor for The Washington Times, the author of “The Devil in DC: Winning Back the Country From the Beast in Washington” and of “Police State USA: How Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming Our Reality,” and a 2008-2009 Robert Novak journalism fellow with The Fund for American Studies.
Poll: Less than Half of America Believes Joe Biden Won the Election Less than half of the American people believe Joe Biden (D) won the presidential election, according to a Tuesday survey from Just the News Daily and independent pollster Scott Rasmussen. The survey, fielded November 5-7 among 1,200 registered voters, asked respondents, “Who do you believe legitimately won the presidential election this year?” It found that 49 percent, overall, believe Biden won the presidential election. Over one-third of voters, or 34 percent, believe Trump won the presidential election, and 16 percent are “not sure” who won. Views are sharply divided along partisan lines. Over three-fourths of Republicans, 77 percent, believe Trump won, compared to 12 percent who said Biden and 11 percent who said they were unsure. By contrast, 87 percent of Democrats believe the former vice president won, six percent believe Trump won, and seven percent remain unsure. While a plurality of independents, 42 percent, said Biden won, nearly a quarter said Trump won, and one-third remain unsure. Democrats comprised 37 percent of the weighted sample, followed by Republicans (32 percent), and others outside of either major party (30 percent). The survey concluded prior to major news networks calling the race for the former vice president on Saturday. The margin of error is +/- 2.8 percent.
Socialism just a couple Senate seats away Sen. Chuck Schumer told a crowd of New Yorkers who were celebrating the idea of a Joe Biden White House that, “Now we take Georgia; then we change the world.” Take heed. That’s a dark warning. That’s a dark warning about the runoffs in Georgia set for decision in January. It’s the musings of a man who represents a movement filled with anti-American forces who’ve been trying to undercut this country’s sovereignty and shred its system of limited government — of democratic-republic government — of government where individual rights come from God — for years. Decades, even. And for all the types out there who gasp in mock scorn at the idea of That! ever coming Here! — of that socialist-slash-communist-slash-collectivist government, a la Cuba or Venezuela government hitting here, the shores of America — well, wake up. It’s here. It’s been here, slowly seeping into America’s culture then politics for years. It’s just not been quite so open or quite so widespread. It’s poised to coalesce and go public under a Biden-Kamala Harris administration.
Christians, it’s beginning to look a lot like the end Jeff Myers, president of Summit Ministries, is calling on Christians to get bolder, louder and more involved in policy and politics, including in this ongoing election battle and fight for electoral integrity, or else face the consequences of a rapidly secularizing America — meaning the demise and degradation and loss of freedom and individual rights. This, in a nutshell, is the key to keeping the country on a path of approved Founding Father governance: The Christian community must awaken and energize. Why? It was the Judeo-Christian concepts that made America great. It’s the Judeo-Christian concepts, and only the Judeo-Christian concepts, that will keep America great. And for Christians to refuse to involve themselves in the political world because of some sort of belief that Jesus would disapprove — well, it’s nothing short of un-American. “The only thing holding Christians back from greater influence is their own sense of inadequacy,” Myers said in an email response to several questions. “There are enough believers to provide excellent leadership at the local level and shape policy in a positive direction at the state and national level[s] as well. Unfortunately, Christians suffer from a kind of learned helplessness. They say, ‘I voted and that is all I can do — God is in control.’ That’s not only bad theology; it’s bad citizenship.” Agreed.
Facebook and Twitter Label 25 Trump Posts in 24 Hours Over the past 24 hours, Facebook and Twitter have labeled posts by President Trump at least 25 times for various reasons. In one case, Facebook labeled the President’s post of his Veterans Day proclamation with the note “Joe Biden is the projected winner of the 2020 US Presidential Election.” Over the past 24 hours, President Trump saw his posts labeled or censored 20 times on Facebook and five times on Twitter, nearly all of the labels questioned the President’s comments relating to the U.S. Presidential election and many stated that Joe Biden was the projected winner of the presidency. One of the labeled posts on Facebook can be seen below:
CNN’s Sciutto: Trump Not Conceding Could Put America in ‘Potential Danger’ for Another 9/11 CNN anchor Jim Sciutto said Wednesday on CNN’s “Newsroom” that President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede the 2020 presidential election could put America at risk for a terrorist attack like the 9/11 attacks. Co-anchor Poppy Harlow asked, “Yes or no, are the actions of the president is taking now putting this country in danger?” Former Bush administration assistant Attorney General Jack Goldsmith said, ” “Clearly, it’s not great for our democracy.” Sciutto said, “Yep, that’s it fair. Let’s put some teeth on that if we can for a moment because they are sitting members of Congress who were around in their positions at the time of 9/11, and the 9/11 commission report specifically cited the shortened transition after the 2000 election for having an impact on national security. I’m quoting here, ‘It hampered the new administration in identifying, recruiting, clearing and obtaining Senate confirmation of key appointees.’ The fact is we have experienced for how shortened transition makes a difference in national security. Why aren’t we hearing from Republicans about that, granting that potential danger?”
Biden ‘Science’ Advisor Calls For 4-6 Week Nationwide Lockdown To Avoid “COVID Hell” Meet the esteemed Dr. Michael Osterholm, who serves as director of the Center of Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, and is the latest “scientist” to join Joe Biden’s “special coronavirus transition advisory team.” We have to do something, Osterholm argues, or – echoing the exact same words Dr. Fauci has fearmongered America with – the U.S. is headed for dark days before a vaccine becomes available. So what is his suggestion? Simple…A nationwide lockdown would drive the number of new cases and hospitalizations down to manageable levels while the world awaits a vaccine, Osterholm told Yahoo inance on Wednesday. “We could pay for a package right now to cover all of the wages, lost wages for individual workers for losses to small companies to medium-sized companies or city, state, county governments. We could do all of that,” he said. “If we did that, then we could lockdown for four-to-six weeks.” So a massive bailout for state and local governments… oh and “we, the people” while we all suffer locked-down like a dementia-ridden presidential candidate in our basements through Thanksgiving and Christmas… with depression and suicide rates soaring ever higher?
Socialists Don’t Sleep is about all the sneaky ways the secular left has pressed Socialism into American politics and life – AND WHY CHRISTIANS ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN STOP IT!
“Socialists Don’t Sleep is one of those timely books that just points out the roots of what’s gone wrong in America, how we can get our country back on track to what founders envisioned and the Judeo-Christian community that holds the key to America’s long-term successes.” — Gov. Mike Huckabee, New York Times Bestselling author & Host of Huckabee
“Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — when it comes to socialism in America, these two aren’t the problem. Per se. They’re simply symptoms of the real problems that usher in Socialism: a dysfunctional entitlement-minded society, a propaganda-pushing school system, a decayed culture, a sieve-like border. As Cheryl Chumley points out in Socialists Don’t Sleep, we can’t root out socialism unless we first address the real problems.” — Michael Savage, New York Times Bestselling author & host of The Savage Nation
Socialists Don’t Sleep: Christians Must Rise or America Will Fall tells how America has gone from a country of rights coming from God – NOT government – to a country that embraces Socialism – where the US government is now expected to pretty much provide from cradle to the grave. Cheryl K. Chumley, an award-winning journalist and contributing editor to The Washington Times, explains how to return the country to its glory days of God-given, and why Christians, more than any other group, are best equipped to lead the way.
“What is it about the founding principles of America that the secular progressive left would make better? The answer is: Nothing. In her new book, Cheryl Chumley reminds us of those principles and calls on those who still believe in them to engage the failed policies and ideology of Socialism and atheism and to fight back.” — Cal Thomas, Nationally-syndicated Conservative Columnist
Special Guest – John Bush
John Bush began his career in activism in 2002 questioning the official account of what happened on 9/11 and speaking out against the wars in the Middle East. He was introduced to libertarianism by the good Dr. Ron Paul in 2007. As he learned of anarchism and agorism he focused his energies on promoting alternative institutions like cryptocurrency and mutual aid groups. His interest in natural health led him to discover kratom, a natural remedy which he sells through his company Brave Botanicals. As of late he has been promoting self-growth and entrepreneurial strategies and helping people overcome addiction.
WHAT THE HECK IS KRATOM!?!
Kratom is a member of the coffee family and is made from the powderized leaves of the kratom evergreen tree. Grown in Southeast Asia, kratom has been used for centuries by laborers for energy, pain relief, and relaxation. Kratom is growing in popularity in the West for chronic pain, stress and anxiety, overcoming addiction, and more.
Kratom comes in a powder form and can be taken as a tea, mixed with water or juice, or taken in capsules.
There are countless people who use kratom regularly and many report that it has helped to no longer be dependent on opioids, opiates, and other pharmaceuticals.
After seeing this plant change people’s lives, it is our duty to help as many people as we can discover it’s magic.

Big Tech Censoring Educational Videos on Kratom, Labeling Them “Dangerous or Harmful Content” For years now I have watched YouTube, Facebook, and other social media sites ban and censor anti-establishment pages and groups. While many are aware of the attacks on activists and alternative media, countless others are unfamiliar with the fact that Big Tech has also been censoring alternative remedies and plant medicine. This is important to me as an advocate for free speech but also because of my line of work. I own and operate Brave Botanicals which offers several alternative remedies the FDA is not fond of. (For those free-thinkers out there, that’s usually a good sign!) Kratom is a plant remedy made from the powderized leaves of the kratom evergreen tree. It’s been used for hundreds of years in Southeast Asia as a folk remedy to help with energy while laboring, unwind after a long day, and also to help overcome opium addiction. The plant medicine has grown increasingly popular in the West as an alternative to pharmaceuticals. With its relative safety and lack of major side effects, it’s no wonder many Americans are turning to this natural remedy for help with chronic pain, stress and anxiety, energy and focus, and even overcoming addiction.
Pfizer CEO Sold Millions In Stock After Coronavirus Vaccine News, Raising Questions The chairman and CEO of Pfizer, Albert Bourla, sold $5.6 million worth of stock in the pharmaceutical company on Monday. The sale took place on the same day Pfizer announced that its experimental coronavirus vaccine candidate was found to be more than 90% effective. The company’s stock soared on the news. Bourla sold the stock as part of a stock-trading plan that aims to shield corporate executives from allegations of illegal insider trading. But these plans have become increasingly controversial, and the issue has taken on added urgency given the billions of dollars the government has promised Pfizer if its vaccine meets the approval of federal regulators. Bourla’s sale of Pfizer stock was part of a trading plan set months in advance. Known as 10b5-1 plans, they essentially put stock trades on autopilot. Executives are supposed to adopt these plans only when they are not in possession of inside information that can affect a company’s stock price — what’s known as material nonpublic information. The timing of the implementation of Bourla’s plan, however, has raised questions about what the Pfizer CEO knew and when, and whether that may invite further scrutiny from federal regulators.
Harris County Public Health Department Goes Door-To-Door To Collect Blood Samples Harris County Public Health will conduct a survey to continue studies on the COVID-19 pandemic. Representatives with HCPH will go door-to-door to randomly selected homes throughout the county, collecting blood samples to determine the presence of COVID-19 antibodies. “In an effort to better understand how many people in Harris County may have already been infected with COVID-19, officials with Harris County Public Health (HCPH) will be conducting a survey of randomly selected homes,” Harris County Public Health stated in a release. “The survey will identify people infected in the past with COVID-19 by the presence of antibodies, proteins the body’s immune system makes to fight infections. County residents agreeing to participate in the survey will be tested for the presence of these antibodies.” HCPH officials will begin visiting randomly selected homes starting from Nov. 15 to Dec. 15 from the hours of 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. HCPH staff will be wearing yellow Harris County Public Health vests and present proper identification. They will also be wearing PPE.
Scoop: Trump eyes digital media empire to take on Fox News President Trump has told friends he wants to start a digital media company to clobber Fox News and undermine the conservative-friendly network, sources tell Axios. The state of play: Some Trump advisers think Fox News made a mistake with an early call (seconded by AP) of President-elect Biden’s win in Arizona. That enraged Trump, and gave him something tangible to use in his attacks on the network. “He plans to wreck Fox. No doubt about it,” said a source with detailed knowledge of Trump’s intentions. With loyal viewers and longtime dominance, Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch said on a Nov. 3 earnings call: “We love competition. We have always thrived with competition. … Fox News has been the number one network, including broadcast networks, … from Labor Day through to Election Day.” Here’s Trump’s plan, according to the source: There’s been lots of speculation about Trump starting a cable channel. But getting carried on cable systems would be expensive and time-consuming. Instead, Trump is considering a digital media channel that would stream online, which would be cheaper and quicker to start. Trump’s digital offering would likely charge a monthly fee to MAGA fans. Many are Fox News viewers, and he’d aim to replace the network — and the $5.99-a-month Fox Nation streaming service, which has an 85% conversion rate from free trials to paid subscribers — as their top destination.
It Begins: Cuomo Issues Lockdown Orders on Private Homes Just Before Thanksgiving Tell the guests that Thanksgiving dinner is canceled. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced orders Wednesday slapping a ten-person cap on gatherings in private residences, including apartments and houses. That means that a lot of family plans for even small Thanksgiving dinners will have to be canceled or risk moving ahead in violation of state law. Restaurants and bars are also being ordered to close at 10 p.m. Health authorities are convinced that late-night dining and drinking is riskier, perhaps because people can stay longer when drinking and dining places are open later. Mysteriously, gyms must also close at 10 p.m. The rules take effect at 10 p.m. Friday.
NYS is taking action to stop the spread in response to rising COVID numbers.
Any establishment with a state liquor license, including bars and restaurants, must close at 10pm.
Gyms must also close at 10pm.
These new statewide rules will take effect Friday, 10pm.

Help Us Save Homeopathy! Help us support our allies in an effort to stop the FDA’s attack on this safe, natural form of medicine. Action Alert! Our friends at Americans for Homeopathy Choice have submitted a Citizens Petition to the FDA requesting that the agency reverse its recent actions with regard to homeopathic medicine. Upending decades of safe regulation, in 2018 the FDA released a draft guidance that essentially stated that all homeopathic drugs are illegal. We cannot let this attack against this safe and effective form of medicine go unchecked. Recall that the FDA’s guidance document, which lays out the agency’s current position on the regulation of homeopathic drugs, says:
- Any homeopathic drug that has not been considered “generally recognized as safe and effective” (GRAS/E) is considered a new drug;
- FDA has not determined that any homeopathic drugs are GRAS/E;
- A new drug cannot be marketed unless it goes through the FDA’s approval process;
- No homeopathic drugs have gone through FDA approval nor can any producer afford to take them through the approval process.
The guidance also explains that, while all homeopathic drugs are illegal, the FDA will apply a risk-based enforcement approach. The agency has already begun to apply this doctrine; earlier this year the agency attacked manufacturers of injectable homeopathic medicines.
