Swann: 'There is an active purge in the US military'

“Kenosha shooter” Kyle Rittenhouse is enjoying a long-overdue vindication in the eyes of his conservative defender. He’s not been clear about whether he will sue the voices in media who demeaned and denigrated him in the aftermath of the shooting. Lionel of Lionel Media reacts.

Then investigative journalist Ben Swann weighs in on new policies in the US military that forbid service members from “liking” politically taboo memes and other ways the Pentagon is stifling soldiers’ speech. He points out that allowing soldiers more and not less freedom to be more public with their politics might lead to fewer unnecessary US wars.

Meanwhile, Harvard has stopped requiring ACT or SAT scores, and other elite institutions may follow suit. Andrew Langer of Institute for Liberty weighs in.

Plus, there was a notable rise in alcohol consumption during the COVID-19 pandemic. RT producer Enrique Rivera argues that the nationwide rise in heavy drinking and alcoholism is owed in part to the advent of cocktails to-go and introduction of more outdoor drinking to help mitigate COVID-19’s infection rate.
