It's time for John's monthly foray into the guest chair as he chats with Lee Lancaster at KYMS radio. John and Lee discuss the Texas school shooting and related to that, the diminishing presence of morality in the schools and the insistence on gun control laws every time a shooting occurs. They also touched on the latest globalist shindig in Davos, the failure of climate change thinking, and the endgame of our currency. John also asks for prayer for the persecuted church, especially in the countries of Nigeria, Indonesia, China, and Egypt.

The Biden administration announced that they are suspending the Disinformation Governance Board. But is the desire to control information really gone from our government? First up this week, we welcome writer and scientist Dr. Matt Briggs (wmbriggs.com) to the program. He shows that even though the disinformation board is on hiatus, other similar offices still exist, like the Office of Environment Justice. Government, in establishing what disinformation is supposed to be, is also establishing what truth is supposed to be.

The need to create a disinformation board in the first place is still prevalent and, according to our next guest, is more about being afraid of dissent rather than disinformation. Back with us today is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. The left has evolved from supporting all free speech no matter what to now demonizing free speech – especially if it goes against their narrative.

We finish up this week with a report out of Canada that the Trudeau administration may soon require journalists to obtain a license if they want to keep doing business. Joining us is freelance writer and software engineer Michael Tennant (thenewamerican.com). Journalists are not yet required to get a license in Canada, but subsidies and preferential treatment tend to go to those who have one. With freedom of speech under attack in the U.S., how long before we see a similar requirement for our press?

This Memorial Day, we take time to honor, reflect, and remember those who've made the ultimate sacrifice for our country so we can keep those freedoms we often talk about.

There is major flippage happening on the postmodern left side of culture - especially on popular TV talk shows and news channels. John sheds light on some of the tactics that Leftist activists use regarding elections and the control of mainstream media and politically correct narratives. He goes on to narrate clips from TV where post-moderns make moral assertions they wind up in self-contradiction, especially when the discussion moves from issue to issue.

We recently chatted with Chaplain E. Ray Moore about the importance of a private, Christian education over what you get from public schools. A colleague of his has developed a method that allows parents to take control of their child's schooling, giving them the tools they need. Joining us today is the Founder of that method, known as the One-Room Schoolhouse method, Dr. Diane Davis (oneroomschooltraining.com). She describes the benefits of having a small classroom – yes, in one room – where children of several different grade levels gather to learn together. Her most important focus: that parents should be the ones in charge of what their children learn.

The disinformation board has been paused, but the need to create it in the first place is more about being afraid of dissent, not disinformation. Back with us today is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He shows us how the natural evolution of the left seems to have gone from supporting all free speech no matter what to now demonizing free speech – especially if it goes against their narrative. He looks at what the endgame is for those on the left and on the right.

Back with us today is our (normally) Ukraine-based expert Reuben Johnson along with his son, Antonio. They recount the harrowing details of what Antonio went through to locate his father during Reuben's capture by Russian marauders.  They also give an insider's look at the 'fog of war' and discuss the real story regarding the terrible situation in Ukraine.

John flies solo today, digging deep into the archives of media history to play a speech given in 1938 by American politician Lewis Schwellenbach (D-WA). Why is he playing this speech? To show the similarities and differences between what happened with Hitler overrunning Austria in 1938 and what Putin is doing in Ukraine today. There are many similarities with what politicians and the media were saying then and now. The primary difference is that today, we are far more connected globally and unable to take an isolationist stance like we could back then. It's important to learn lessons from history and apply them to today.

If you put your kids in secular, atheist, Marxist seminaries (aka public schools), don't be surprised when you get secular, atheist, Marxists out. What is the best alternative? First up this week, we welcome Chaplain E. Ray Moore (exodusmandate.org), Co-Founder of Frontline Ministries. He describes what his organization is doing to get children out of public education and into private, Christian schools. He reveals his opinions on vouchers, charter schools, and running for school boards. He also urges pastors to get off the sidelines and defend the truth and biblical education.

What would America's founding fathers say about the state of not only education, but our entire country today? Joining us is author Steven Rabb (thefoundersspeech.com), who just wrote a book describing how everything the founders warned us against is now happening. There is a constant end running of the Constitution by those in the swamp who strenuously fight against reform. This has resulted in the chaos we're now seeing. How do we stop it? Return to the founders' idea of what the United States should be.

Finally this week, we dive into the future of the world's economy. Will it be full of digital currency and the problems that come with it? Joining us to chat about that is Chris Brady (chrisbrady.com), Founder and CEO of Life Platform. He looks at the future of Bitcoin, the plans of the world's central banks and the inevitable rollout of debt to create digital currencies. He also examines the dangers of going with a digital currency, especially the tracking aspect and the programmability standards.

So, the Biden administration just announced that they are discontinuing the Disinformation Governance Board. We recorded today's interview right before that announcement. The topics today, however, are still very much relevant. Back with us after a long hiatus is writer and scientist Dr. Matt Briggs (wmbriggs.com). He discusses the obvious faults with a disinformation board, as well as similar problems with the new Office of Environment Justice and its counterpart in the Securities and Exchange Commission. Government, in establishing what disinformation is supposed to be, is also establishing what truth is supposed to be.
