California Dreamin’

As the recall vote on Gov. Gavin Newsom nears, he is countering by pushing a $100 billion relief/restoration plan for the state of California. Breaking down the numbers, that includes $5.2 billion for residents who couldn’t pay rent during the coronavirus shutdown and another $2 billion for water and power bills. Then there’s the icing on the cake–$12 billion for middle-class Californians as a kickback!

All this for a state that’s running a hefty surplus and didn’t need a bailout. Nevertheless, Newsom is giving it all away as the recall election draws closer. The “Right Angle” triumvirate of Bill Whittle, Scott Ott and Stephen Green discuss Newsom’s handout.

Civilization Vs. Tribal Barbarism

As rockets rise from Palestinian territory, Israel’s defensive Iron Dome system activates to intercept them. The scene is captured in a “photo for the times,” as Bill Whittle call it.

What he sees in this current conflict is a battle between ancient tribal barbarism and a more humane 21st century way of life. Whittle is joined by the “Right Angle” crew of Stephen Green and Scott Ott to discuss the concept.

Target Bows To Woke America

In the wake of the George Floyd murder trial, the Target store in downtown Minneapolis got a bit of a facelift on its exterior walls via a racial-justice mural that shows a town in flames as protestors riot.

This wouldn’t be such an interesting story if not for the fact that the Target was burned to the ground by these very same thugs. Turns out Target is just another one in the avalanche of corporations currying favor with woke America. Or is this just another confirmation of Stockholm Syndrome? The “Right Angle” trio of Stephen Green, Bill Whittle and Scott Ott debate the issue on the Bill Whittle channel.

Herd Immunity By April

With cases of COVID-19 down and vaccinations in full swing, many think we’ll reach herd immunity sometime in April. Stephen Green of the “Right Angle” triumvirate, says a recent article in the Wall Street Journal reports that COVID cases nationwide are down almost 70 percent in the last six weeks (ending two weeks ago) and cases have further declined since.

The article goes on to state that testing has only been able to capture between 10 to 25 percent of infections, depending on when one contracted the virus. Applying some time-weighted math to the 28 million confirmed coronavirus cases, points to 55 percent of Americans with natural immunity, though well short of the 85 percent needed for herd immunity. But hold on. As of two weeks ago, 15 percent of Americans have been vaccinated and that number is growing. And furthermore, former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb says 250 million vaccine doses will be delivered to Americans by the end of March, which should bring us to herd immunity. Bill Whittle and Scott Ott join Green for their analyses of the issue.

Free Market Economy In Cuba

Cuba is slowly reforming its economy, basically because the Soviet Union sugar daddy has been gone for years. And you just can’t run an economy without some outside source of income.

The Cuban government just relaxed its ban on some 2,000 private sector jobs, opening the economy for more free market activity. This, as the Communist party prepares to bid adios to Raul Castro, who inherited the country’s leadership from his brother, Fidel. Is the multi-generational U.S. embargo finally paying off? Will the people of Cuba finally enjoy the sweet song of liberty? Get the lowdown from the “Right Angle” crew of Scott Ott, Stephen Green and Bill Whittle.

Biden Enraged With Newsom

President Biden is mad as hell at California Gov. Gavin Newsom for easing COVID-19 restrictions in California at the peak of the pandemic. Trending on Twitter was a tweet from a reliable source that says there’s “steam coming out” of Biden’s ears in rage because of Newsom lifting stay-at-home orders in California, adding he only did it out of re-election fears. Newsom also is in the eye of a Golden State storm, as voters have mounted a serious challenge to recall the governor.

Could the Democrats already be turning on each other?¬†The “Right Angle” trio of Bill Whittle, Scott Ott and Stephen Green discuss the breaking news.

A New Internet On The Way

Tim Berners-Lee, the father of the World Wide Web, is sick of how Big Tech and social media companies have corrupted his child. And most disgusting for Berners-Lee, is the recent and unecessary eruption of censorship.

He’s building a brand new version of the internet, where you are in control of all your personal data, far away from the sinister fingers of manipulative corporations, such as Google, Facebook, Apple and Twitter. The “Right Angle” triumvirate of Bill Whittle, Stephen Green and Scott Ott give their impressions of the new revelation.

Politics And The Pandemic

We have seen public trust absolutely shatter since the onset of the Wuhan Flu Pandemic almost 10 months ago.¬†Allegations are abound that politicians and scientists hid their suspicions about the origins of COVID-19 to avoid giving credence to President Trump’s declarations that the virus did in fact originate from a lab in Wuhan, China.

Rational authority will tell you that when it comes to fighting a pandemic, or any other health issue, public trust is really the only thing they have to fight back. And when that trust is shattered, it’s extremely difficult to get it back. But shattered it was by self-serving public officials in Communist China who unabashedly released the virus on the world. Right Angle moderator Stephen Green is joined by Bill Whittle and Scott Ott to debate the issue.

Are Former Felons Still Citizens?

Federal agents raided rapper Lil Wayne’s plane at Miami Opa Locka Airport, finding a gold-plated gun and some ammo, according to TMZ. Born Dwayne Carter, the popular performer now faces 10 years in prison because of a 2009 felony conviction, which meant he lost his Second Amendment protections forever.

We used to say that a court sentence was how a man pays his debt to society. Now, a man can never pay that debt. So are we no longer the land of second chances? “Right Angle” panel member Scott Ott says, “Call me a 2nd Amendment purist, but I don’t think it should be illegal to own a gun. If I’m not in the penitentiary and I own a gun, that should not be illegal. I’m going to go even further on this. Not only do I not feel we should refer to somebody who has paid their debt to society as a felon, or even as a former felon, I don’t think it should be on a record that anybody can access.”

Ott continues his thoughts with fellow panel members Bill Whittle and Stephen Green on this installment of “Right Angle” on the Bill Whittle Channel.
