The Uncomfortable Truth From The Heartland
Americans need to face the Uncomfortable Truth that our Constitution is under attack, every day, right under our noses. It is pervasive, and it is dangerous to Americans who value their rights and their freedoms.
The Uncomfortable Truth is a weekly show on the America Out Loud Network, hosted by former Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson and retired Detective Dan Jackson, along with a variety of guests. Discussion focuses on the “Ferguson Effect” on the entire nation, and the overt socialist assault on American society and our Constitutional rights. By August 10, 2014, it became obvious that the justifiable killing of Michael Brown by Police Officer Darren Wilson, in the defense of Wilson’s own life as he attempted to effect a felony arrest, was being used as a battle cry by people controlling an agenda far bigger than Ferguson, MO. Michael Brown became the false idol for an overt, aggressive, and well-funded agenda against American society.
In this show, we discuss that effect, and how the full-on socialist agenda is wearing down our society, our freedoms, and more so, our Constitutional rights.
