In Mark 11, Jesus asked the Pharisees to decide if the baptism of John was from heaven or from men. Instead of making a decision, they sat on the fence and claimed ignorance. Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca), Founder of Street Church Ministries in Alberta, Canada, spoke in our area recently and John caught up with him for an interview. Artur shows what the battle ahead will look like for Western civilization and what we must do to win. We must get off the fence and stand up to tyranny. We know what tyranny looks like from history so we should be able to recognize it now. Making that decision is scary, but with God on our side and an iron resolve, we can successfully make a stand and choose what side of the fence we want to be on.

If what is happening doesn't make sense, there must be another agenda afoot. And today, there are many things that don't make sense. Back with us this week is John Guandolo (understandingthethreat.com), Founder of Understanding the Threat. He maintains that many of these illogical events – like the disastrous pullout from Afghanistan – are intentional. Change agents come to town trying to distract you from the truth of what's happening but people are beginning to see through the charade and wake up. He shows us what we can do.

Finally this week we welcome to the show Joseph Puder (frontpagemag.com), columnist at FrontPage Magazine. He examines America's reputation in the world after the pullout from Afghanistan. Our allies around the world don't trust us and our enemies are more emboldened. Does that mean attacks on U.S. soil are imminent?

Has America learned anything since the attacks on September 11, 2001? The globalists were at work 20 years ago. What are they up to today? We welcome back to the program Pat Wood (citizensforfreespeech.org), Founder and Executive Director of Citizens for Free Speech and Founder of Technocracy News. He looks at the sustainable development plans of the globalists, which are the same now as back then, only now they are armed with artificial intelligence and higher computing power. He also discusses biometrics, the Trilateral Commission, social engineering, and of course technocracy.

The globalists are also waging war on the economic front, using the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as their general. Back with us this week is Alex Newman (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American magazine. He examines the IMF’s plan to issue ‘special drawing rights’ that will redistribute America’s wealth and replace the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Does this sound surprising? It should since no one in the media is talking about it. Can we stop this high-tech theft or is it too late?

Finally this week we look at the concept of inequality and the leftists’ idealistic and unrealistic definition of it. Joining us to discuss this is James Rogers (lawliberty.org), Associate Professor of Political Science at Texas A&M University. Are the rich evil like the left says, or do they offer employment, fund charities that help the poor, and keep the economy humming? The core issue with the leftists’ inequality problem is that those shouting the loudest do the least amount of work to solve it.

Sometimes genuine liberals follow the facts, have an awakening, and/or reject woke ideology. Only then can you have a real, substantive conversation. Joining us today for that real conversation is a genuine liberal, Neil Kiernan (v-radio.us), host of the V-Radio podcast. In an extended chat, he and John discuss the toxic nature of biased journalism, the best ways to reach people from the other side of the ideological aisle, and their individual experiences battling the globalist agenda. More and more people – on both sides – are getting sick of the craziness and moving to more rational and sane conversations.

What is the best way to eradicate critical race theory from our schools? The answer may surprise you. Rounding out our show this week is attorney and writer ME Boyd (missconstitution.com), known as Miss Constitution. After recounting the history of education before and after the 1962 decision to outlaw prayer in schools, she posits that CRT is a religion itself and should, based on precedent, be banned from education. It is far more coercive in its religious-like fervor to rid our schools of morality, honor, and faith and replace it with hatred and division. So it should be removed.

America’s Not-So-Original Sin

The reason for much of the strife we see today, including what happened in Afghanistan as well as the failure of the woke ideology in the U.S., is the stark difference in right vs left worldviews. First up this week is Jason Ross (liberty.edu), Interim Dean of the Helms School of Government at Liberty University. He looks at one aspect of the leftist worldview – America is evil because of our past with slavery. What sets America apart, though, is that we got rid of slavery. Our founding documents and Judeo-Christian foundation paved the way for this. So the leftist narrative that we are evil because of our past with slavery ignores our history.

As Afghanistan spirals out of control, another country is spiraling down in a different way. Australia has gone into lockdown again, causing some to wonder if the country is turning back into a penal colony. Joining us from Down Under is Matthew Wong (discernable.io), Founder of Discernable media. He describes some of the draconian measures authorities are taking in his country. The government keeps moving the goalposts to hold on to power. Matt and John debate the best way to make people realize that the totalitarians are here.

Finally this week we dive into the world of cyber attacks and espionage. Weifeng Zhong (policychangeindex.org), Senior Research Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University is with us. He discusses what little our government is doing to protect citizens and its own assets from cyber attacks. The powers that be, however, are not seriously looking at the problem because the politically correct thing to do is to not criticize the number one cyber attacker in the world – China.

John finishes up the program with some thoughts on what happened in Afghanistan.

Eliminating cash and transitioning to an all-digital currency may make some people nervous, especially if the digital currency is backed by the government. Leading off the show this week is silver expert David Morgan (themorganreport.com), author of the Morgan Report. He and John look at the possibility that the U.S. government could shift to digital currency, giving them control over all transactions. Bitcoin, the current leader in digital money, will either face off against the establishment or be co-opted by it. David also predicts what could happen with inflation and our massive debt.

We then move in-house with a conversation between John and Producer Steve. They examine the media's lack of journalism in parroting the administration's wavering virus messaging as well as using conflicting scientific papers in the virus and vaccine battle. They also discuss the tendency for the truth to win out in the end, how mandates violate freedom, and even some unprofessional undercover activity on the part of federal law enforcement.

Finally, we welcome to the show Mike Berry (firstliberty.org), General Counsel for First Liberty Institute and member of the U.S. Marine Corps. It is getting harder for members of the armed forces to honor the military oath. It says you are to support and defend the Constitution, but it also says you are to obey the orders of the President and superior officers. With woke leadership demonizing conservative military members for their beliefs, eventually our enemies will defeat us without firing a shot.

The Chinese Communist Party and its leader, Xi Jinping, have told us what their geopolitical and military plans are. Is anyone in our country listening? First up this week is Seth Cropsey (hudson.org), Director of the Center for American Seapower at the Hudson Institute. The Chinese navy is building ships at a rapid rate and mapping out strategy regarding Taiwan and the U.S. Our military, on the other hand, is worried about gender pronouns. There are weaknesses within China, if only we would recognize them and exploit them. Eventually reality becomes real. Will we face a knockout punch or will we wake up before that happens?

Is there any hope with America's education system? Indoctrination and incorrect narrative-driven history is running amok. Joining us this week is Jacob Howland (city-journal.org), Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Tulsa. He draws on his many years of experience in higher learning to show how educrats are removing classical education from the classrooms and replacing it with slogans and leftist ideologies. So is there any hope? Some teachers and many parents have now recognized what's going on and they're fighting back. Let's hope it's not too late.

One of the ways that parents are fighting back is at school board meetings. Why are they angry? Three words: critical race theory. Wrapping up the show this week is Julie Gunlock (iwf.org), Director of the Center for Progress and Innovation at the Independent Women's Forum. Many school boards blindly support critical race theory, but some board members have gone so far as to lash out at parents because they oppose CRT. Those same parents have now woken up and are pushing back – some by running to replace these board members.

"History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme:" a quote attributed to author Mark Twain. We see today the seedlings of socialism beginning to burst through here in the U.S. and it looks awfully familiar. First up this week is Andrei Znamenski (notesonliberty.com), Professor of History at the University of Memphis. He grew up in the Soviet Union before coming here in 1991 and is an expert in the lead-up to the Bolshevik movement of 1917. He describes the beginning of communism in Russia where they would shut down intellectual debate, control the media, and institute a repressive cancel culture. Where have we heard that before?

The Christian Church has been affected by this change, with some leaders and pastors compromising the Church's doctrines to cater to the secularized culture. Back with us this week after a long hiatus is Ken Ham (answersingenesis.org), CEO and Founder of Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum, and the world-renowned Ark Encounter. He looks to help prepare Christians to take a bold stand, defend God's Word, and take on the worldly culture. The Church should cease compromising because in the troubled times ahead, with the enemies already inside the gates, the solid foundation of Truth will be a much needed weapon.

Finally this week, we take a look at censorship and the violation of the free speech rights of millions of Americans. Wrapping up the show is May Davis (iwf.org), Visiting Fellow at the Independent Women's Forum. She discusses President Trump's class action lawsuit against social media companies, the need to apply fair rules to everyone equally, and how the repercussions of Big Tech's censorship could help change the culture and founding principles of the country.

There are many reasons we are so divided in this country. One reason stems from the lack of honest teaching of today's children. Leading off the program this week is Wesley Smith (discovery.org), Chair and Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute's Center on Human Exceptionalism. He looks at why we have such a hard time talking to people with opposing ideologies. It involves two sides coming at an issue with two different mindsets and two different groups of word definitions. But fundamentally each side has a different moral frame of reference that renders debate virtually impossible. Only when we recognize that the paradigm has changed will be able to try and bridge the divide.

Switching now to geopolitics, there is a lot going on in the world today that the media simply doesn't cover. Joining us this week is Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He discusses the geopolitics surrounding the Cuba protests, Iran's attempts to kidnap American citizens, Ukraine-Russia relations, and the latest on what China is up to. He also laments the downfall of journalism, specifically at the Washington Post.

Finally this week, John and Producer Steve sit down to tackle two interesting topics. First, the White House has now admitted to colluding with social media companies to flag what they deem to be misinformation about vaccines. And second, they explore the possible outcomes of the state election audits, including the questionable chances of President Trump retaking the White House should the audits prove he won and the media's near screeching coverage of what they call the "fraudits." If the election was legit, why are they so upset?

Critical race theory has taken hold in education, but now that it has been roundly rejected by a majority of the people, teachers unions and educrats are running away from it. First up on the show this week is Lindsey Curnutte (heritageaction.com), Press Secretary for Heritage Action for America. She looks at how the NEA seems to be washing their hands of CRT, erasing it completely from their website. She also promotes Heritage's new e-book on how to combat critical race theory, which you can find at crtbook.com.

Because of CRT and the many other Marxist theories that have been taught to children for decades, many of today's youth don't want to debate and don't seem capable of understanding history as it actually was. Anne-Christine Hoff (jarvis.edu), Professor of English at Jarvis Christian College in Texas, joins us. She discusses how ideological youth make claims they can't back up or defend and then call you a racist if you disagree with them. That is classic Marxism. She also looks at how many Christian universities haven't stepped up to address these issues.

This toxic ideology has spilled out of universities onto the street as our next guest can attest. Back with us is longtime friend of the show Dexter Van Zile (camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA. He describes the horrible treatment he endured during a Students for Palestine rally at a university campus in Boston. There's a degradation of civility in the U.S. and a significant part of that is aimed at Jews and supporters of Israel. That campaign is in part a result of untrue narratives being perpetuated throughout the education system.

We wrap up today's show with Tara Ross (saveourstates.com), Advisor at the group Save Our States. She examines the checks and balances that keep absolute power from any one branch of government, focusing on the For the People Act, which has been shot down for now but will not go away. She also looks at 2020 election-related procedures that did not go through proper channels and egregious overreach by governors during the pandemic.
