On today’s podcast, John and Producer Steve sit down and discuss the recent New York Times report highlighting President Trump’s tax returns for the last several years. They cover what the Times was really trying to do with the story, the hypocrisy surrounding the anti-Trump crowd in regards to his tax avoidance (not evasion), and the narratives that were actually busted in the article. John also floats his idea on how taxes should be in this country.
In 2016, our guest today correctly picked every state in the presidential election, including Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. So we invited back election forecast expert Gerard Lameiro (www.greatnewsforamerica.com) to join us and discuss his thoughts on how things will play out this November. He covers why the polls are often wrong, whether because of biases, assumptions, or an effort to influence potential voters. He also gives his prediction of the final electoral college tally between President Trump and Joe Biden this fall and asserts that this is the most important election since the election year of ….

The politically correct narrative today is that when Christopher Columbus came to the New World, everything went downhill from there, starting with his mistreatment of the Aztecs. Dr. Robert Royal (www.thecatholicthing.org), Editor-in-Chief of The Catholic Thing and an expert on Christopher Columbus, joins us today. He looks at who Columbus was as a person and how his discovery of the New World eventually led to the greatness of Western society. Today’s politically correct elite, though, perpetuate the anti-Columbus narrative which has led to revisionist history taught in schools and the tearing down of Columbus statues around the country.
Once a month John visits the studios of KYMS radio here in the Inland Northwest and chats with host Lee Lancaster about a variety of topics. On today’s bonus podcast, John and Lee discuss the increasing chaos surrounding masks in this country as well as how Christianity is once again being attacked, this time in conjunction with the Supreme Court pick. They also cover the corruption of education along with leftist and media hypocrisy in various issues today. John finishes up with a sobering update on the worldwide martyred church.
Before this week, you probably didn't think 2020 could get any crazier. Now we have a Supreme Court nomination fight on our hands. John opens the show this week looking beyond the news everyone else is talking about and tackling issues like judicial activism, the need for a full court before the post-election legal chaos, and how the making of laws should fall squarely on the shoulders of Congress, not the executive or judicial branches.
With all the craziness going, John checks in with long-time friend of the show, author and futurist James Kunstler (www.kunstler.com). They discuss the current state of affairs including when the democrat party really started going off the rails. He goes on to predict where the United States is going economically as well as where the oil industry is headed and he looks at the fate of our country's urban centers.
Finally, we welcome Russell Berman (www.hoover.org), Humanities Professor at Stanford and Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, who examines one of the latest chess pieces in President Trump's foreign policy plan – the agreement between Serbia and Kosovo and their future relationship with Israel. The President was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for this accomplishment. Will he actually win or will political correctness infiltrate another award ceremony?
President Trump is set to announce his nominee for the vacant Supreme Court seat and already there is talk of possible religious interference. John and Producer Steve sit down to discuss the possibility of the pick being Amy Cony Barrett, a devout Catholic. They cover Roe v Wade and gun control among other issues. The Left is OK with pushing forward their values when the situation calls for it but will vehemently oppose anyone who advocates for or simply quietly believes in Christian values. Your beliefs should be rooted in a solid foundation so that you know why you believe what you believe, but the Left is constantly moving their goalposts in search of a purpose they can never find.
Things are crazy right now, what with the election coming up and a contentious Supreme Court battle just around the corner. Where will be after all of this? Author and futurist James Kunstler (www.kunstler.com) is back with us to examine our current state of affairs. He looks at when the democrat party really started to go off the rails and how both sides are handling the important issues.
Mr. Kunstler analyzes the economy and the oil industry and predicts where our society will be in the near future. He also forecasts the fate of urban centers in the U.S. after the virus crisis is over. Will New York City ever be the same?
John dives into the Supreme Court falderal on today's podcast, looking at a number of issues surrounding the selection and possible confirmation of a new Supreme Court Justice. We cannot allow judicial activism to take over our legal system. We need the full complement of judges – currently set at nine – in order to definitively decide cases, especially those sure to appear following the election. And the making of laws should fall squarely on the shoulders of Congress, not the executive or judicial branches. It's not just one side versus the other like you see in the mainstream media. There's much more going on and John has it for you today.
The Atlantic recently published an anonymously sourced story about disparaging – now discredited as having never happened – remarks made by President Trump against our military. Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt (www.prayinjesusname.org), founder and CEO of the Pray in Jesus' Name Project, joins us to analyze whether that story will affect the military vote in November and give his prediction of what the final breakdown will be for the military vote. He goes on to discuss how polls are conducted and their methodology. He also covers the dangers of mail-in voting, drawing on his experience with it in his home state of Colorado.
The Trump administration recently brought together leaders from Serbia and Kosovo, signing an agreement of economic cooperation. In that agreement, both countries agreed to move their embassies to Jerusalem and normalize relations with Israel. Russell Berman (www.hoover.org), Humanities Professor at Stanford and Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins us to discuss this latest step in President Trump's foreign policy plan.
The front lines of tyranny in Europe have moved east and this latest agreement has helped establish inroads in the Balkan peninsula and Aegean Sea region. President Trump and his team should get credit for their accomplishments but will not because of the corrupt and biased media.
