Many individual conservatives have been cancelled online for speaking against the leftist orthodoxy, but what happens when an entire website is wiped out? First up on the show this week, we speak with Russ White (rule11.tech), nationwide expert in network infrastructure architecture. He looks at how some Big Tech companies have a virtual monopoly on what gets seen online. If they don't like your speech then you no longer have a digital footprint. This violates free speech and is dangerous. In other words, it's fascism.
Why do voters in minority areas continuously vote for a party that most of the time does not represent their values? John welcomes conservative author and speaker Autry Pruitt (newjourneypac.org) to the show, who examines how Republicans have dropped the ball in minority neighborhoods and churches. He also explains how pastors and church members reconcile their faith with the doctrines of the democrat party. There is a shift to the left in society and in the theology of the church.
The new totalitarianism springing up in the West will praise socialism as a way to infiltrate the Christian church. How then will the church be affected and how should it fight back? Wrapping up the show this week is Dr. Erwin Lutzer (moodymedia.org), Pastor Emeritus of Moody Bible Church, who debunks the myth that socialism and the Bible are compatible. The church is facing many assaults, which is when leftists offer their version of socialistic hope. But Christianity offers true hope and that must be what we lovingly preach moving forward.
Straight from the 'tag anything not leftist as white supremacism' playbook here in America, groups aligned with the BDS movement in Israel are now shouting 'Jewish supremacism!' Back with us today to dive into this is Dexter Van Zile (camera.org), Christian Media Analyst with the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis. Political narratives from different groups are spun instead of reality and that leads to justification for actions against Israel. Christian groups are caught up in it, noting that since Jewish groups inside Israel are beating up on Israel, then it's OK to do so as well. In short, believing the untrue narrative forces Christian groups to lie about Israel.
Why do voters in minority areas continuously vote for a party that most of the time does not represent their values? Joining us today is conservative author and speaker Autry Pruitt (newjourneypac.org), who discusses how Republicans have dropped the ball, ceding minority neighborhoods, including churches, to the left. How do pastors and church members reconcile their faith with the doctrines of the democrat party? There is a shift to the left in society and in the theology of the church, but community and fellowship matter. The left succeeds at that in minority areas; the right does not.
Newly inaugurated President Biden wasted no time signing an executive order that cancelled the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Is the pipeline actually harmful to the environment or is this much ado about nothing? Joining us today is Steve Milloy, founder and publisher of junkscience.com, where he debunks faulty climate data. The left is hoping to set up a climate regime. But re-entering the Paris Climate Accord and cancelling the Keystone Pipeline won't actually help the environment. What it will do is virtue signal to other nations that we care about the planet. It will also allow China to further its quest to become the number one global superpower while the U.S. and the West waste time enhancing their image.
The new totalitarianism springing up in the West will praise socialism as a way to infiltrate the church. How then will the church be affected and how should it fight back? Joining us today is Dr. Erwin Lutzer (moodymedia.org), Pastor Emeritus of Moody Bible Church, who debunks the myth that socialism and the Bible are compatible. The church is facing many assaults, including edicts which will infringe on religious freedom as well as cultural pressure that will cause Christians to self-censor their beliefs. Leftists will offer socialistic hope and reconciliation but it will never work and has never worked. Christianity offers true hope and reconciliation and that must be what we lovingly preach moving forward.
It's bad enough to attack and de-platform a single person for speaking against the leftist orthodoxy. It's even worse to shut down an entire internet site or app for the same thing. Joining us today is Russ White (rule11.tech), nationwide expert in network infrastructure architecture. He explains how some Big Tech companies have a virtual monopoly on what gets resolved and what gets seen online, so if they suddenly decide that they don't like your speech then, poof, you no longer have a digital footprint. This is dangerous, it violates free speech, and it looks an awful lot like fascism.
Sometimes, when your whole world changes and it becomes hard to recognize, it helps to step back and review how we got here. Opening up this week, John looks at the long progressive march through America's institutions for the past century, as well as the change liberalism underwent from classic liberalism to Neo-Marxism. There have been push-backs along the way as non-liberal administrations took the reins. But, as we have seen with the flurry of executive orders from the new Biden administration, policies keep zig-zagging back and forth and nothing ever gets accomplished. John shows us the best way to move forward.
Big Tech, media, and politicians on the Left are colluding to destroy any person or company who dissents from the woke leftist point of view. Joining us is Adam Weiss (amworldgroup.com), founder and CEO of AMW Group, a New York-based PR firm. He looks at how cancel culture is ramping up now that President Trump's tenure has ended. The 'new normal' for Big Tech consists of censorship and de-platforming anyone who doesn't conform to what they deem to be the acceptable narrative.
Many people are fleeing blue areas due to corrupt politicians and horrible policies. Wrapping up the program this week is Mark Pulliam (misruleoflaw.com), owner of the blog site Misrule of Law and resident of a bright red county in Tennessee. He relates his experience of moving from a blue area to a red one, but things are changing even there. People in red areas have gotten inattentive and complacent, allowing leftists to make inroads in an attempt to flip the area blue. Mark offers solutions on how to resist the incoming progressive tide.
We've seen with Parler what Big Tech can do when platforms challenge not only their preferred narrative, but also their popularity in the marketplace. On today's podcast, we speak with wireless industry expert Rex Lee (mysmartprivacy.com), founder of My Smart Privacy. He discusses Big Tech's selectivity and hypocrisy in censorship and the importance of Section 230. He also looks at what Parler and other companies need to do in the future to keep from being completely wiped out.
Sometimes, when things change and a paradigm shift is upon you, it helps to review how we got to this point. On today's podcast, John looks at the long progressive march through America's institutions for the past century, as well as the change liberalism underwent from classic liberalism to Neo-Marxism. There were right-leaning push-backs with the Republican revolution in 1994 and the Tea Party in 2008. The woke crowd woke up and you began to see "racist!" and "white supremacist" and other epithets emerge, only to grow stronger by the time Donald Trump came on the scene. John offers suggestions on how to overcome the current crisis. It involves understanding what the crisis is and being able to talk to people on the other side and let them know you care. And of course, it always helps to pray for them.
The United States has a new President and he gave a pretty standard speech at his inauguration. On today's podcast, John and Producer Steve look at President Joe Biden's calls for unity and what that really means for America. Each ideological side has completely different visions for our country and completely different worldviews, making unity all but impossible. Will there be an allowance for “people to have room to disagree” like was mentioned in the speech? Or will platforms and internet service providers continue their assault on free speech? Interesting times are ahead. Stay tuned tomorrow for John's analysis of how we got here and how we move forward.
