Frederick's Forum

The Forum agenda for November 14th, 2020

The Country You Want to Have is at Stake

The challenges are at every level: global, national, and local.  What can be done to effect change against such a monster?  Fortunately there are, believe it or not, immediate solutions with far reaching impact.  There are things you can do.  And that’s what’s crucial… things YOU can do.

This week’s Forum addresses the problem and then advances the case for 8 very specific things to be done by you as an individual.  These are 8 things that all people who love their family, love their neighbor, love their church, and love their country can (and should) do beginning asap.

Hope exists.  Purpose for your life awaits.  You can participate in the victory.

Frederick’s Forum agenda for November 7th, 2020

Getting Outside of Their Lane Just Ain’t Right

Judges and justices, local and national politicians, paying for college, individual wealth and income…  They’re all conneceted in an important way.  The Forum will talk about it.

Plus, the Forum tackles the election morass and other things that just ain’t right.

It’s always the fastest sixty minutes in radio as we make the Forum great again.  #MFGA

Frederick’s Forum agenda for October 31th, 2020

We Live During Strange Days 

Remember when Halloween was our only crazy day of the year?  The non-stop craziness of life in 2020 seems impossible to solve.  But this week on The Forum we answer all the questions.  Yep.  All of them.  (Well, okay… a lot of them.)  One at a time.  Simple and foolproof answers.

Power hungry politicians?  The illusion of unseen threats?  Punitive economic decisions?  Runaway taxation?  Oppressive policies ruling the schools?  Trust in public institutions at an all time low?  People being abused?  Dishonest elections?  Obvious censorship and bias?  The attack on liberty and freedom?

What are the answers?  After this week’s Forum we’ll all know.

Frederick’s Forum agenda for October 24th, 2020

The FCPS Kingpins are still at it. The local oligarchs are still spending YOUR money.

It’s become a government of the labor unions, by the labor unions, for the labor unions.

Big Brother is watching you.  The socialists never saw a freedom they didn’t yearn to destroy.

Law enforcement in the news.  And so much more.  It’s a busy, busy show.

Frederick’s Forum agenda for October 17th, 2020

There was an attempted takeover of the show by leftists, but it was successfully foiled.  As Troy Skinner was busy officiating a wedding, his troops defended the hill on Saturday and rebroadcast some of the most important communiqués from recent months on The Forum.  These include:

Councilman Kai Hagen’s “harrassing” behavior toward constituents.

The government excuses for controling the lives of citizens.

Enemies on the crazy left seeing themselves as heroes.

When removal of freedom and misandrist bias becomes the norm.

Frederick’s Forum agenda for October 10th, 2020

This week’s show will quickly navigate the avalanche of local news in recent days. 

The Forum will cover (among other things) new laws in Maryland, changes in the local school boards of Frederick and Washington County (as well as changes among our State Delegates), and unfortunately the lots and lots of coronavirus updates… with pretty much every story requiring citizens to awaken from our collective stupor and bravely take our lives back.

The elected kings, queens, and overlords continue to tease about letting you out of the shackles with which they’ve bound you.  They claim that they are fixing things, the very things that are broken only due to the oligarchs own actions.  What’s more they are attempting to fix your things, they things THEY broke, using YOUR money and the lunch money they shook from the pockets of your friends.

Set your watch, and let’s meet for lunch this Saturday.  Noon on WFMD.

Frederick’s Forum agenda for October 3rd, 2020

Trump 2020 Parade day!

In light of Saturday’s rally (starting in Middletown and ending on downtown Frederick), the Forum digs into the issues surrounding the national election in November.  This is your chance to learn if our Frederick’s Forum host is a “never trumper”.  (You might be surprised by what he shares.)  The hour will highlight commentary on Tuesday’s debate performances, as well as the most profound issues at stake in the election.  The show also definitively answers the question, “Did Tuesday’s spectacle change any minds?”  (The answer is “yes”, and this week’s Forum explains why.)  This will be a hot one!  Give it a “five flame” rating on a scale of one to five.

Frederick’s Forum: September 26th, 2020

On tap for this week’s Forum:

The litany of high-profile crimes recently in our neighborhoods.

Property tax nonsense.

FCPS demonstrating a non-conservative bias.

The passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Our present-day fetters (often called “masks” or “face coverings”).

Frederick’s Forum: September 12th, 2020

This show is basically about bravery.  Those who have it.  Those who don’t.  And those who work to undermine it. 

  • Goggles, masks, and other face coverings.
  • Digging out from under the overlord dictated lockdowns.
  • The “Frederick Wall of Shame” wearing masks in more way than one.
