The Irish connection is reunited.
David Vance joins us once again as we put the world, and the main stream media to rights, ripping into the stories and articles that have caught our eye or made our blood boil this week.
In this episode that is dripping in sarcasm, David connects with us in prayer as we turn our thoughts to, and say G'Day to Prof Brett Sutton, Chief Health Officer in Victoria, Australia who has Covid, symptoms - feeling pretty rubbish, razor blade throat, cough and generally being a bit of a Sheila!
Bill Gates has a touch of the Chyna virus too, has mild symptoms but is isolating..........luckily for them both, they are boosted to the eyeballs or can you just imagine how bad they would of been!!
In the US The White House carries on as the harbinger of doom as they warn of '100 million' Covid infections this fall, we hear of educators being trained by the Teaching Association to introduce gender ideology to their classrooms with utter crap like “people who have penises”, “people with vaginas”, “people who can become pregnant”, “people who can have other people pregnant” and “people at risk for testicular cancer”!!
Closer to home we take a look at some shocking statistics concerning mortality rates and the vaccinated population and also that one child has died and more children reported of being affected by the 'mystery' hepatitis outbreak in the UK and Ireland.
We ask is Free Speech on hold? Elon Musk Twitter deal put on ice pending details supporting calculations about spam and fake accounts on the platform while Calvin Klein has produced a 'stunning and brave' Mothers Day advert featuring a pregnant man and received a mighty backlash with followers vowing 'never to buy the brand again!'
And in the Russia/Ukraine debacle we discuss the American pledge of $40bn to Ukraine, Russia cutting electricity to Finland and the UKs support for the Fins and the Swedes.
We ponder the Azov Brgade: Nazis or just Nationalists? and have the Ukraine already won the Eurovision Song Contest without singing a note?
Join us for all this and more, opinion, discussion and a good laugh or two!

Pureblood David Vance will not submit and he will not comply.
He used to be disgusted but now he tries to be amused!
In the battle for truth and liberty, David chooses the front line.
Editor of BiasedBBC.org and ATangledWeb.org, he has appeared on all forms of legacy media but has had enough of that!
You can regularly catch David here at Hearts of Oak on our weekly news review 'The Week According To. . .'

Project Veritas is the most well known and feared undercover journalism operation and James O’Keefe has been at the helm of this formidable organisation for over a decade.
It is an absolute pleasure to speak with James about their latest expose involving an FBI whistleblower and also to discuss his latest book American Muckraker, which delves into the reasons why Project Veritas exists and the struggles they have had in exposing truth when the establishment, in all its forms wants to silence them.

James O’Keefe is an award-winning journalist and writer. He is the founder and President of both Project Veritas and Project Veritas Action, non-profit organizations dedicated to investigating corruption, dishonesty, waste and fraud in both public and private institutions.
At nineteen James started a newspaper at Rutgers, five years later he conducted an undercover investigation, financed with nothing but a credit card, that led to the congressional defunding of ACORN. He founded Project Veritas by shipping hidden cameras to citizen reporters and whistleblowers.
This new genre of guerilla video journalism ignited a movement with the tagline: "Be Brave, Do Something."
Along the way, O'Keefe has exposed big tech abuses, media malfeasance, and state and federal election violations leading to scores of resignations and arrests.
His work has also led to enhanced voter integrity, new state legislation, and courtroom First Amendment triumphs - including a 2021 defamation lawsuit against The New York Times and the recent FBI raids on his home concerning the Biden diaries, the undercover reports on Pfizer and the COVID narrative and his removal from Twitter have certainly got people talking.
James is the author of Breakthrough: Our Guerilla War to Expose Fraud and Save Democracy and American Pravda: My Fight for Truth in the Era of Fake News.
His latest book is American Muckraker: Rethinking Journalism for the 21st Century.
It is a work of nonfiction and recounts the new journalistic mass movement of today. Compiled from over a decade of investigative reporting coupled with a vast reference of philosophical research, American Muckraker is the definitive guide of truth-telling in the video age and is available on Amazon and all good non-woke book stores.

We are honoured to welcome Dr Naomi Wolf to Hearts of Oak to discuss her latest book 'The Bodies of Others: The New Authoritarians, COVID-19 and The War Against the Human'.
Dr Wolf has been one of the most vocal opponents of the Covid tyranny and was banned from Twitter after sharing with her 146,000 followers a reading of a researchers resume, which showed his work on gain of function research had indeed been funded by National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, under the leadership of Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Since the start of the 'pandemic', Dr. Wolf has looked closely at the data and documents in the public domain involving the COVID-19 crisis, questioning aspects of the government and Big Tech's narratives and she has now been validated by later reporting.
Because of her inquiring mind, sharing primary source documents and encouraging open dialogue about matters that should be of public interest, she has been punished by Big Tech which have blocked, smeared and hampered her on their platforms..... except GETTR!

Dr. Naomi Wolf is a bestselling author, columnist, and professor; she is a graduate of Yale University and received a doctorate from Oxford.
She is cofounder and CEO of DailyClout.io, a successful civic tech company.
Since the publication of her landmark international bestseller, The Beauty Myth, which The New York Times called “one of the most important books of the 20th century," Dr Wolf’s other seven bestsellers have been translated worldwide.
The End of America and Give Me Liberty: A Handbook For American Revolutionaries, predicted the current crisis in authoritarianism and presented effective tools for citizens to promote civic engagement.
Dr Wolf trains thought leaders of tomorrow, teaching public presentation to Rhodes Scholars and co-leading a Stony Brook University that gave professors skills to become public intellectuals.
She was a Rhodes scholar herself, and was an advisor to the Clinton re-election campaign and to Vice President Al Gore. Dr Wolf has written for every major news outlet in the US and many globally; she had four opinion columns, including in The Guardian and the Sunday Times of London.
She lives with her husband, veteran and private detective Brian, in the Hudson Valley.

Her new book is set for release 31.5.22, titled 'The Bodies of Others: The New Authoritarians, COVID-19 and the War Against the Human'
In it you will find out the real causes of the otherwise bizarre policies of the last two years and be able to prepare yourself and your families better to be safe from tyranny and help to regain your lives and country. The Bodies of Others is a sequel to The End of America and Give Me Liberty, showing just how far we’ve come in the slide to fascism in the US and the West in general. The book exposes the powerful forces arrayed against our human connections, communities and cultures, and helps to equip citizens to take back America.

Fathers4Justice founder Matt O'Connor returns to the fold for our regular get-together, and this episode we mainly focus on mens rights and issues.
We will discuss with Matt his recent appearance on New Culture Forum and his interview about how the new divorce law will be a disaster for the chaps and also his article in The Express highlighting hostility directed at men.
Matt will give us his thoughts about the report of the number of male teachers in the UK being at an all time low and what the implications might be before introducing us to his latest petition called 'Archie's Law' which aims to make Parental Alienation and Contact Denial a criminal offence.
And right up Matt's street is the Johnny Depp/Amber Turd trial and Fathers4Justice have taken a keen interest in this case with their eye-catching campaign headline 'RISK OF DOMESTIC ABUSE' and it will be interesting to hear his opinions on this case!
And we finish this episode with Elon Musk poking the hornets nest of Soros, Clinton, The Obama's and Co who oppose the direction he is taking Twitter after Musk receives a letter saying the platform 'risks becoming a cesspool of misinformation'.

Archie's Law Petition discussed in episode:


Founder of the cutting-edge rock and roll brand The Icecreamists, Matt O'Connor is a true pioneer of uncensored, opinionated brands that push boundaries.
His résumé is as bold as his ice cream flavours and over the last 20 years includes work as a big brand communicator and creative director on some of the world's leading brands, cocktail supremo, designer, film, theatrical and political projects, books and music.
There's also the small matter of him being the founding father and frontman of the most contentious and high-profile pressure group of modern times, Fathers4Justice.

Fathers4Justice (F4J) is the UK’s leading fathers’ rights and shared parenting campaign group with over 18 years experience providing expert help, support and advice for thousands of fathers, grandparents and other family members going through the family courts, as well as winning shared and sole residency for countless dads.
They are fathers who have been through the system and won.

Bitcoin 2022 in Miami carried that tradition by being much bigger than anything done before.
John Vallis was MC for some of the discussions and joins us this episode with an analysis of the event.
Not only was the attendance nearly double of last year, but the key note speaker was non other than Jordan Peterson which shows how Bitcoin is moving into the mainstream and is no longer niche, but a financial tool that is being widely adopted.
With countries adopting it as an official currency, is it time to jump onboard?

John Vallis is a proud Canadian, a passionate bitcoin advocate and an enthusiastic explorer of the profound implications it represents and is also one of the highest-quality podcasters in the Bitcoin space with his show “Bitcoin Rapid Fire.”
He has interviewed Bitcoiners of all ages and from all walks of life like developers, sovereign individuals and more, including Jordan Peterson and Michael Saylor, the CEO of MicroStrategy.

Calvin Robinson is known to many as a political and social commentator who can regularly be seen and heard on TV, Radio and online but did you know that as a Christian he has felt a calling towards the priesthood in the Church of England?
He has been studying hard behind the scenes in his spare time and has now completed this but something unexpected happened.
At the very last moment, the powers that be have pulled the plug and ruled that he is not fit to continue his ascension within the C of E.
What has Calvin done that is so wrong.
Has he rejected his faith?
Has he hated instead of loving his neighbour?
Has he been dishonest or hypocritical in some way?
He has simply accepted scripture and sides with truth in the current culture wars.
Is it because he says a man is born and man and a woman is born a woman?
Is it because he has supported the Conservatives and the Brexit Party in the past?
Is it because he is regularly on GB news and across the media giving his traditional views on a wide range of topics?
Is this is why the bishops have blocked his path to priesthood?
A fascinating interview so join us to hear what Calvin's views are on all this and whether the Church of England should remain as an organ of the state.

Calvin Robinson is a popular British political advisor, presenter and commentator.
He has been published widely in the media, including GB News, Talk radio, the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail, the Spectator, and the Daily Express among others.
He is a former assistant principal and has consulted for the Department for Education, supporting school leaders across the South East.
Born and bred in the East Midlands in England, Calvin is on a crusade to reclaim our country from the woke using truth and common sense while standing up for family, conservative, Christian and British values.

Abi Roberts is back in the hot seat, ready to share with us what has caught her eye this week online and in the media.
Shy and retiring she is not! so expect fireworks as she takes aim at The Mayor of London using the transport system to push LGBT, Midwife students being taught to care for fellas who might just pop a baby out of their penis!
We look at the reports that there is a 'significant rise' in cardiac issues for the under 65s in Scotland and what could possibly be causing them, will the BBC, or to give them their full title, The British Biased Corporation retract their lies over vaccine threat in pregnancy?
Abi muses over the fact that in the US they plan to give experimental mRNA injections to 6 month old babies and Moderna seeking approval for the jab aimed at under fives, and all the news and media outlets are concerned with is our pitiful and pathetic political leaders and whether they drank a beer or eat some cake.
Its not going away, newly re-elected Macron introduces the Digital ID in France and Sajid 'Who Cares' Javid expands the NHS Covid pass for kids here in the UK while in Germany the global vaccine passport is being developed. Is the Social Credit Score heading our way?

Abi Roberts is a British stand-up comedian, writer and commentator. Abi became a professional stand-up in 2012, and since then has played some of the biggest clubs across the UK, and had several sold-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. She became a comedian because she wanted to write her own material and have the freedom to express her worldview – and make thousands of people laugh at the absurdity and wonder of life. Abi does not worship at ‘The Church of Woke’! If you ask her how she identifies or what her gender pronouns are, she would give you this answer: “I’m a straight female who’s flattened a lot of grass. I spent much of my university days behind a club called Cinderella’s with a cone of chips in one hand and a pint of Snakebite and Black in the other. For balance. I once dabbled in Lesbiana but couldn’t fully commit because, like a London cab driver, I wouldn’t go south of the river.” Abi’s stand up show Anglichanka, which was about living and studying in Russia, gained her several 5 star rave reviews and the show toured the UK. She was the first comedian to do shows in Moscow in both English and Russian, as Abi explains “My father was a spy… sorry, diplomat, so I went to the Soviet Union as a kid and then in the early 1990s I studied opera at the Moscow Conservatoire. Over the years, I’ve met many people who have been persecuted by the Soviet regime, including Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, so I have an inbuilt hatred of all authoritarian bastards who encourage denouncement and punish freedom of speech.” She has appeared as a guest comedian on BBC Radio 4’s Midweek, Saturday Live and BBC Radio Scotland’s The Janice Forsyth Show, and ITV’s Good Morning Britain, debating mandatory vaccine passports opposite Edwina Currie. As a writer, Abi has written for several publications including Spiked and The Times. Abi is a regular commentator on GB News, You can see her on Tonight Live with Dan Wootton and Mark Dolan and she also appears regularly on Andrew Doyle’s Free Speech Nation as well as Nana Akua’s weekend Debate show on GB News every Friday from 4-6pm. Twice monthly she joins Ann Widdecombe and Emma Webb in Widdecombe Webb & Woberts streamed LIVE on the New Culture Forum YouTube channel and also contributes regularly on Talk Radio & Times Radio.

Pete Peterson, Dean of Public Policy at Pepperdine University in California joins us this episode for a fascinating look at the education system in America.
I had the pleasure of meeting Pete when I was in the US earlier this month and he kindly agreed to come on Hearts of Oak to discuss the battle that is currently taking place for the heart and soul of College Campuses across the US.
A diversity of viewpoint is no longer accepted and students are now required to sign up to the latest prevailing victimhood status group, a difference of views and opinion is simply no longer tolerated.
Pete's run for the position of Secretary of State in California gives him broad insight and knowledge on the attack of education in America and how best to respond.

Pete Peterson is a leading national speaker and writer on issues related to civic participation, and the use of technology to make government more responsive and transparent. He was the first executive director of the bi-partisan organization, Common Sense California, which in 2010 joined with the Davenport Institute at the School of Public Policy to become the Davenport Institute for Public Engagement and Civic Leadership, he has also consulted on several of these projects with local governments, and has directly facilitated public meetings.
He has co-created and currently co-facilitates the training seminar, "Public Engagement: The Vital Leadership Skill in Difficult Times" a program that has been attended by over 3,000 municipal officials, and he also co-created and co-facilitates the seminar, "Gov 2.0: What Public Officials Need to Know," which explores the ways in which technology is changing local government processes and he recently co-developed the new Professional Certificate, "Leading Smart Communities," with govtech practitioner Dr. Jonathan Reichental.
In 2017, SPP launched a new initiative titled the "American Project: On the Future of Conservatism", which is co-directed by Dean Peterson and Rich Tafel. The "Project" is a unique effort to gather scholars and activists from a variety point on the conservative spectrum to deliberate over, write about, and discuss the future of the conservative movement.
Pete writes widely on public engagement for a variety major news outlets including the Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, and San Francisco Chronicle, as well as numerous blogs. He is a regular guest on the "Politics Roundtable" with host Larry Mantle on KPCC radio. He has also helped write several survey-based reports on the subject, including "Testing the Waters: California's Local Officials Experiment with New Ways to Engage the Public" (in collaboration with the League of California Cities), and the "California Civic Health Index" (in collaboration with the National Conference on Citizenship). He contributed the chapter, "Place as Pragmatic Policy" to the edited volume, Why Place Matters: Geography, Identity, and Civic Life in Modern America (New Atlantis Books, 2014), and the chapter "Do-It Ourselves Citizenship" in the volume, Localism in the Mass Age (Wipf & Stock, 2018).
Pete has been a public affairs fellow at The Hoover Institution, and he serves on the Leadership Councils of the Public Policy Institute of California and California Forward, and on the boards of the Homeland Security Advisory Council and the Da Vinci Charter Schools and was the Republican candidate for California Secretary of State in 2014.

Over the Easter holiday period Sweden was in flames.
A politician announced he would be burning a book, the Quran, and the Muslim community did not take kindly to this, in neighbourhood after neighbourhood police were pelted with rocks and cars set ablaze by angry rioters.
Just the thought of someone setting fire to the Quarn had turned calm and peaceful members of society who follow Islam into angry, aggressive rioters who became extremely violent.
Journalist Ingrid Carlqvist joins us to discuss what exactly happened to her country and how the police, politicians and the media have responded.

Ingrid Carlqvist is a fearless Swedish journalist and author who opposes mass immigration and the Islamization of Sweden.
This is part of the speech she made in The European Parliament a decade ago that is even more relevant today.
"Ladies and gentlemen. My name is Ingrid Carlqvist and I was born in Sweden in 1960, when the Social Democrats were gonna rule forever and ever and our country was the nicest and safest and most progressed in the world.
Now I live in Absurdistan – a country that has the highest figure of reported rapes in the world, hundreds of so called “exclusion areas” where people live outside the Swedish society and with newspapers that hide all these horrible facts to the people.
I feel just like Dorothy Gale in The Wizard of Oz – a tornado came and blew me miles and miles away from home and dumped me in a country I don’t know.
Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Sweden anymore.”
