We Need to Do Something Now America – an Interview with Michael Johns – Ep. 734

Today’s show rundown:

Our military is now woke! They can’t fight unless they have a safe space. When the left gets in power they love to tear down the US military. Imagine the parody video we could shoot of two guys in a foxhole, but having to stop and get their pronouns right. Buzz Lightyear movie flop – millions lost so far, go woke, go broke has never been more true. Meanwhile Top Gun Maverick is still killing it at the box office.

We meet our returning guest Michael Johns – where is the Tea Party now. The juncture now is that we have so many fires going on in this country – a threat to our survival and way of government that may not be reversible if we do not prevail. The Left will tell us that WE are the problem, and that WE are the threat to Democracy itself. Projection and the Left is a book that could write itself.


MICHAEL JOHNS is a co-founder and national leader of the national Tea Party movement, which was launched in 2009 and grew into the largest and most influential grassroots political movement in U.S. history. The Tea Party took control of the U.S. House in 2010, permanently blocking Obama’s legislative agenda, and later took control of the U.S. Senate in 2014 and paving the ground for Trump to run a successful populist insurgent campaign against the Republican Party establishment and then the Clinton political machine.

Michael has served as a White House speechwriter to President George H.W. Bush, a senior aid to a Republican U.S. Senator and Governor and a Heritage Foundation policy analyst, where he led the foundation’s Reagan Doctrine initiatives that many historians have since credited with being the decisive factor in America prevailing in the Cold War.

In the 1990s, as a director of the U.S. government-funded International Republican Institute, he was responsible for developing global programs to strengthen democracy, free and fair elections, and election monitoring in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and the former Soviet Union.

On June 16, 2015, the first day of Donald Trump’s candidacy, Michael was among the first prominent national conservatives to endorse Trump for president.

Michael has written for The Wall Street Journal, The Christian Science Monitor, National Review and other national media and appears as a conservative public policy and political commentator for many global television-band radio news outlets.
