Rev. Kenn Blanchard’s new podcast – “Speak Life” – is a must for every man and woman who wears a badge, owns a gun, hunts and believes freedom is life’s first right.
“Speak Life” takes an unconventional, corrective and spiritual approach to understanding and redefining the most demonized, trivialized and misunderstood sectors of today’s society. It speaks to and about law enforcement, the firearms owner community, as well as outdoorsmen and women. It tackles tough issues and brings a unique understanding to misconceived stereotypes including unnecessarily contentious race relations.
“Speak Life” exposes for all to see the spiritual core of each constituent group that is too often ignored and denied by the national media, politicians in both Parties, academia, the business community, and institutional religion.
“Speak Life” is a no-holds-barred assault on fear, misconceptions and prejudice against the law enforcement, military, and civilian firearms owner/outdoors hunting communities. It’s straight talk designed to make every listener think and reevaluate commonly held but falsely coined perceptions.
Kenn Blanchard is unconventional.
Kenn Blanchard is a former Marine and former law enforcement officer. He spent nearly 30 years as a security and counter-terror specialist, operative, and analyst with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
He is a firearms activist, trainer, and public speaker who shared a stage with U.S. President Donald Trump. He lobbied and testified on firearms rights before the United States Congress as well as state legislatures in Texas, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Michigan, Virginia and Maryland.
His dedication to truth and freedom earned him the National Rifle Association’s Carter-Knight Freedom Award, the Second Amendment Foundations’ Gun Defender Award and the St. Gabriel Possenti Medal from the St. Possenti Society. He’s worked with the Law Enforcement Alliance of America (LEAA), the American Shooting Sports Council, the Second Amendment Foundation, Gun Owners of America, the National Rifle Association and the CATO Institute.
He founded the 10th Cavalry Gun Club honoring the men, labeled “Buffalo Soldiers” who fought throughout the nation’s military history. His tenacity defending his beliefs is derived from the definition of the “Buffalo Soldiers” coined by Cheyenne warriors as men who fought like a cornered buffalo, who suffered wound after wound but would not die.
He confronts racial stereotypes head-on using - “Black Man with a Gun” – as the title for his successful earlier podcasts and website.
Most important, he is a husband, a father, and an ordained minister.
