How Direct Primary Care Could Change The World of Health Care, with Dr. Glenn Davis, Dr. Geetinder Goyal, & Dr. Avik Roy

For this special episode, Dan is highlighting a new bill he just introduced called the "Direct Primary Care for America Act." Over the past few years the concept of direct primary care has been adopted by doctors all across America with lots of success. The idea is simple: you should have an affordable monthly fee for a primary-care doctor, without extra charges for visits and without third-party insurance. You can find a doctor near you by simply going to a website and typing in your ZIP code. This new model makes health care costs more transparent and affordable, and strengthens the doctor-patient relationship.

Joining us to discuss direct primary care are two doctors who have actually implemented the model in their practices - Dr. Glenn Davis and Dr. Geetinder Goyal - along with a returning guest and health care expert - Dr. Avik Roy.

Visit my website http://crenshaw.house.gov to learn more about my new bill and stay tuned for exciting developments in what could become the future of American health care.

Anarchists, "Storm Troopers" & Aliens: Protecting the Homeland from Antifa's Reign of Chaos, with Chad Wolf, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security

Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Chad Wolf joins us for an inside look at his department?s operations to enforce and (in the case of Portland, OR) restore the law across America. For weeks, the federal courthouse in Portland has been the target of escalating attacks by anarchists, criminals, and opportunists. Local and state officials have given these radicals free reign to attack the courthouse and federal officers with fireworks, molotov cocktails, high-powered lasers, and more tools of destruction.

So how is Homeland Security protecting the courthouse? What's the truth behind the federal officers who Speaker Pelosi calls "storm troopers"? What's the current state of our southern border in the age of pandemic? And with the UFO bombshells coming out of the Pentagon, Dan obviously has to ask what Homeland Security is doing to protect us from aliens.
