Several years ago, the Bremerton, Washington School District fired football coach Joe Kennedy over a brief silent prayer he made on the field after a game. Stephanie Taub (www.firstliberty.org), Senior Counsel at First Liberty Institute, joins us to discuss the status of the case, as well as the freedom of religion and the right to religious expression. John finishes up today's podcast reviewing a few examples of Christian persecution around the world.
There is so much flipping and flopping on issues today, it's enough to make a person dizzy. In this week's boralogue, John looks at postmodernist history and why they don't seem to mind changing course on an issue. To them, reality is based on feelings and perceptions, which means words and laws and rules don't have concrete meaning. There are no moral standards, but sooner or later reality becomes real and people will need to think clearly. Today's youth haven't been taught how to do that, so many are lashing out, causing chaos around the country and inconsistently asserting their opinion on important issues.
In order to prove a myth false, you need facts on your side. On today's podcast, we welcome Dr. John Lott, Founder and President of the Crime Prevention Research Center (www.crimeresearch.org), who discusses his new book on gun control myths. The greatest purveyor of these myths are the media, who misrepresent the facts surrounding shootings and completely ignore the ‘good guy with a gun saves the day' stories.
Dr. Lott looks at whether the violence related to current rioting will affect the gun control debate. He also paints a picture as to what this country would look like should all guns be outlawed.
Picking up where they left off yesterday, Dave McAlvany and Kevin Orrick (www.mcalvanyweeklycommentary.com), Co-Hosts of the McAlvany Weekly Commentary, are back to conclude our two-day round table discussion. Today, they shift from an economic analysis to more of a spiritual discussion, covering Christianity's threat to communism, standing up in the face of adversity, and relying on God during crises.
Joining us for part one of a two-day round table discussion are Dave McAlvany and Kevin Orrick, Co-Hosts of the McAlvany Weekly Commentary, prominently featured on the Steel Podcast Network. Today, they discuss the increased reliance on credit, the economy possibility of another Cold War, this time with China, and how the global economy is affected by the U.S. election cycle.
First up this week, we have defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson (www.thebulwark.com), joining us from Kiev, Ukraine, where he examines the geopolitics of Russia and China, including Putin's new extended stay as Russian leader, the possible collapse economically of both countries, and how well Americans understand what's happening outside of the U.S.
We transition to Peter Vincent Pry (www.emptaskforcenhs.com), Executive Director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He looks at how little the U.S. has prepared against a possible EMP attack and how a power bloc of countries would compete for control if the U.S. were ever to militarily leave a region.
What is a paradigm shift and what does it look like when you're going through one? In this week's boralogue, John makes sense of all the chaos we're seeing today, explaining the different steps of the paradigm shift happening right now and how to survive it. We must retain the foundations America was built on once we've shifted or we're done as a free country.
We round out the program this week with John's analysis on logical fallacies, how best to spot them, and what you can do to refute them.
What is a paradigm shift and what does it look like when you're going through one? In this week's boralogue, John makes sense of all the chaos we're seeing in the streets, warning everyone about the law of political karma: beware what you wish for because you might just get it. John explains the different steps of the paradigm shift happening right now and how to survive it. We must retain the foundations America was built on once we've shifted or we're done as a free country.
If we are under threat of attack, it should be the responsibility of those in charge to prepare for it. Peter Vincent Pry (www.emptaskforcenhs.com), Executive Director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security joins us to examine the Deep State bureaucracy's disdain for President Trump and their reluctance to change into an effective government. The Obama holdovers have entrenched themselves and are committed to a competing narrative.
Mr. Pry describes the EMP program as it exists today, the comparison between President Reagan's Star Wars Initiative and President Trump's Space Force, and the power bloc of countries – Russia, China, Iran, etc., as well as a global terrorist network, that would vie for control should the United States fall from its current position at the top of global geopolitics.
Slavery still exists in the world – all outside of the United States. So does forced sterilization and internment camps in China. Kelsey Bolar (www.iwf.org), Senior Policy Analyst at the Independent Women's Forum, joins us today to discuss these atrocious acts and point out that when the oppressors and slave masters are members of a predetermined minority class, the narrative gets complicated and therefore disappears from media and politics.
John finishes out today's show from the Dialectical Dojo, dishing out knowledge on two logical fallacies: the fallacy of equivocation and the fallacy of false cause or improper correlation. John plans to wear his fallacy kimono at least once a week to educate you on the many logical fallacies we see in today's discourse.
Defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson, joins us from Kiev, Ukraine for a Russia geopolitics update. There was a recent referendum in Russia to allow Vladimir Putin to serve more terms than he is constitutionally allowed. Many of the country's rules on voting were violated, ensuring the outcome that was wanted but causing some protests in the Eastern region of the country.
Mr. Johnson goes into a variety of topics including the possibility of not only Russia collapsing, but also China – and how it would happen, the corruption of officials and policies in Russia, and how well Americans understand what's happening outside of the U.S.
