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.
We have now arrived in this country at a time when a lot of bad ideas are coming home to roost. People are feeling pain because of it. We'll look at two examples of that today. First, John and Producer Steve chat about the recent SCOTUS draft opinion leak and the issues surrounding that. They look at the protests around the Justices' homes, end running the Constitution, ignoring the rule of law, and how the Tenth Amendment is usually and conveniently forgotten. Twisting the language of the Constitution to fit an ideology is always a bad idea and we're seeing the consequences of that now.
Second this week, we focus on the bad ideas related to environmentalism and the current administration's energy strategy. John welcomes Greg Kozera (shalecrescentusa.com), Director of Marketing for Shale Crescent USA. He draws on his experience in the industry to discuss America's energy problems. Climate alarmists demand change, despite the U.S. having cleaner methods of extraction and cleaner fuel. The current administration's bad ideas have only made matters worse, but he offers realistic solutions.
When you're surrounded by bad ideas and the entrenched bureaucracy keeps pumping them out, it takes a lot to stand up to them. We finish out the show this week with Rachel Alexander (intellectualconservative.com), Founder and Editor of the Intellectual Conservative. She describes how Arizona's Attorney General Mark Brnovich is taking on the swamp and is having some success. His strategy: be bold and be not afraid. Fighting this battle is hard, but when bad ideas lead to real world pain, good, sound ideas can counter them.
Several GOP governors are uniting to fight the Biden administration's failed border security policies. Will it work or is it too little too late? First up this week is Mary Ann Mendoza (angelfamilies.org), Founder of Angel Families. The governors should have united years ago, she contends, because they have more power than they think. She and John discuss several border issues, including remittances, media misinformation, and how jobs and education have been negatively affected. Biden's woke policies are causing all kinds of chaos. As John often says, political correctness is killing us – literally in some cases.
In addition to PC policies literally killing people in the arena of immigration, it's also wreaking havoc in the healthcare system. A girl in Michigan who is in renal failure is being denied access to the transplant list because her parents have a religious objection to the covid vaccine. Joining us today is the girl's mother, Jenna Campau, along with an attorney familiar with the case, Brian Festa of We The Patriots USA (wethepatriotsusa.org). Jenna describes her experience with medical professionals and Brian details the impending court case they are bringing against the doctors. It's a race against time to save the life of a young girl caught in the middle of a politicized and socialized healthcare system.
Finally this week, we take a peek under the hood of Elon Musk's buyout of Twitter that seems to be causing quite the weeping and gnashing of teeth in liberal circles. With us to discuss is columnist and retired entrepreneur Bob Adelmann (thenewamerican.com). He looks at the runup to the Twitter purchase, how the board tried its poison pill strategy to no avail, and the always hyperbolic reactions from the left. Only time will tell if Mr. Musk sticks to his pledge to turn Twitter back to a free speech platform.
After much outrage over CRT, it seemed to have faded into obscurity. But news of a Missouri school district including questions in a math assignment related to sexual activity has raised questions about its return. First up this week, we welcome to the show Andrea Widburg (americanthinker.com), Deputy Editor at American Thinker. She looks at how this one example points to a much bigger problem: school curricula are still rife with woke lies about history along with vivid sexual depictions. Thankfully, most parents – and even a few on the left – are not fooled and are beginning to see the truth. Is wokus pokus in schools finally being drowned out by the truth?
Many in younger generations today rely on Google to look up the truth about history or other issues. The problem with that is: how do you know what you're finding is actually true? John flies solo in this segment, examining how much of what Google purports to be fact is often taken out of context. You need to understand facts in context in order to understand why people behave the way they do. Knowing human nature and applying it to history gives you a much clearer, fact-based look at our past, rather than the wokus pokus version we often see. This will help our children in schools as they wade through the waters of indoctrination.
Finally this week, we take a brief look at one of the latest political scandals: the Hunter Biden laptop. Joining us is Lloyd Billingsley (independent.org), Policy Fellow at the Independent Institute. He discusses the further downfall of the intelligence community after current and former IC members published a letter incorrectly denouncing the laptop story as disinformation. The CIA and FBI have become politicized for one side and while doing so have neglected their real job, which is keeping the nation safe.
The First Amendment to our Constitution states in part that Congress shall not prohibit the free exercise of religion. One government committee is doing just that – in the name of morality. First up this week, John welcomes Andrew Beckwith (mafamily.org), President of the Massachusetts Family Institute. Vida Real, an Hispanic church in Massachusetts, has applied to open a Bible-based school. Even though they have met the requirements, the government panel in charge of approving such requests has denied them. One panel member thinks approval would not be the moral thing to do. For woke leftists, their ideology is a religion – one that always seems to be at odds with Christianity.
So in that case, a woke leftist appealed to morality, but how do people with no sense of morality get away with that? Next up this week, we talk with Rabbi Chananya Weissman (chananyaweissman.com), Founder of End the Madness in Jerusalem. He looks at the nature of morality as it has always been defined and shows how leftist woke religion is diametrically opposed to Judeo-Christian values. He also gives an update on the state of cancel culture and wokeism in Israel.
Finally this week, we transition to the topic of climate change with Dr. Judith Curry (judithcurry.com), President of the Climate Forecast Applications Network. If we're going to talk about climate change, the discussion must be sane and rational – not apocalyptic and ridiculous like so many claims today. Solutions must come from the local level, not a one-size fits all panacea from the globalists. Of course the reason why the conversation trends toward hysteria is so that the power, money, and control folks can enact their plans.
We've discussed before the nefarious nature of ESG scores, which are social credit scores for businesses. Today we look at how these socialist standards would affect the oil industry. First up this week is author and scholar John Horvat (returntoorder.org). He examines the recent rule proposed by the Securities and Exchange Commission that would force public companies to disclose climate risks involved in their operation. This rule, motivated by ideology, not economics, gives the impression that America is weak and for the oil industry, will result in declined oil production at a time when energy needs are on the rise.
We then transition to the education arena, showing how dysfunctional our schools have become, even in conservative areas. John first chats with Adam Guillette (aim.org), President of Accuracy in Media. He looks at how CRT is still being taught in schools – even in red states and even after parents succeeded in removing it from curricula. Teachers have admitted that no matter what happens, they'll just close the classroom door and teach what they want.
How did our education system get to the point where teachers choose to teach CRT or discuss sexual topics with children? We welcome two guests: Richard Hawkins (christedu.org), retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force and Dr. Max Lyons (face.net), Director of Teaching Services at the Foundation for American Christian Education. They reveal how teachers' colleges are preparing educators to indoctrinate students with socialist lesson plans. Dr. Lyons shows how his foundation has developed a biblical approach to teaching.
We wrap up the show this week with a positive message. People around the world need to hear and read the Word of God and one of those places is in South America. Joining John is David Witt (spritofmartyrdom.com), CEO of Spirit of Martyrdom International. He describes the need for God's Word in Venezuela and Colombia and what his organization is doing to provide Bibles and leadership in churches there. God has begun a revival of the Christian Church and a renewal of hearts, including those in hard-to-reach tribal areas.
In order for globalists to enact total control through the Great Reset, they need to plan each step accordingly. Leading off the show this week is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He studies the logical progression of that plan, looking at inflation, universal basic income, price controls, digital currencies, and more. The way to fight back against this plan is to create a parallel society and populate it with analogous businesses. Elites know that, so they retaliate with step one of their plan: boosting inflation. Given our current situation, it would appear that the plan has begun.
What is it really like on the ground in Ukraine? We are joined once again by Reuben Johnson, who has escaped his adopted war-torn country and is back in the United States. He reviews the treatment he received at the hands of the Russians and shares several stories of atrocities committed by Russian soldiers since the war began. He also describes how Putin's military efforts are weakening and gives his thoughts about what needs to happen going forward.
If this isn't the End Times, it's one heck of a dress rehearsal. Finishing out the program this week to discuss the religious aspect of current events is Dr. J.B. Hixson (notbyworks.org), President of Not By Works Ministries. He looks at a key indicator that the End Times period is near: the constant attempts by globalists to form a one-world government. He also discusses elements of his new book, including how covid, the vaccines, and the 2020 election are all related to furthering the globalist plan.
Politicos have mismanaged our economy for years leading us to the paradigm shift we're experiencing today. Now they're trying to offload responsibility but also use this mess to continue their agenda. John opens the program this week continuing his analysis of how we got here. He reviews what President Trump did to repair our economy and how President Biden has undone all of that. The world runs on oil, but there are forces – namely the climate alarmists – that have always advocated for getting us off of oil by taxing it, thereby hurting the poor and middle class. They and the politicos have slowly enacted their plans over the years, leading us to where we are today.
People are beginning to awaken from their slumber when it comes to these plans. The emperor is quickly disrobing and all the cards are now on the table. Joining us today is Christopher Bedford (rightforge.com), Chief Communications Officer at RightForge. Globalists are using our current crises to accelerate their Great Reset plans, but as they do, average everyday folks are waking up. Issues and relationships once thought unimportant are suddenly found to be vital. There's a battle brewing between the resetters and the reformers as we race into an unknown future.
There has been a new set of sanctions against the Russian government for their role in Ukraine. But could there be unforeseen consequences to these new sanctions? With us to discuss is Tho Bishop (mises.org), Assistant Editor of the Mises Wire at the Mises Institute. He shows how politicians are largely ignorant about economics, putting politics over sound policy. He also looks at the very real possibility that the sanctions process being used against Putin right now may soon be used against ‘domestic terrorists' in America.
We finish this week's program with an incredible update from our correspondent in Ukraine, Reuben Johnson. We had feared the worst after not hearing from him for weeks, but he's back and he tells us what he experienced trying to leave Ukraine and how the Russian soldiers feel about the war they're fighting.
There are two characteristics that are emerging on the global stage covering a panoply of issues. John flies solo to open the program this week, identifying these two issues as eroding confidence in our public officials and their tendency to enforce rules and regulations arbitrarily. He gives a few examples in the world economy where these issues are causing substantial erosion. He then goes on to give the history of the dollar as the world's reserve currency, describing the many sleights of hand used to manipulate and weaponize the dollar over the last 75 years. The result is the economic mess we find ourselves in today.
Cancel culture is pervasive today, not just in economics, but across all aspects of society. How did it get to this point and is there a way to stop it? Joining us today is Mark Bauerlein (firstthings.com), Senior Editor at First Things and Professor Emeritus of English at Emory University. He shows how the younger generations are learning this canceling behavior, both online and in schools, parlaying that on to college campuses and then into the workplace. Many Christian denominations have fallen prey to this as well. But if enough people stand up, call it out, and reject it, we can put a stop to it.
What is the advantage of an armed citizenry? Finishing out the program this week is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He looks at the advantage the U.S. has in having an armed citizenry, including the importance of the Second Amendment. No one has ever invaded America, most likely because we have millions of armed citizens. He also advocates for bringing back a well-regulated militia – a controversial idea to the left but an important one to discuss.
From the multi-faceted destructive plans of the globalists to the similar, more local tactics of change agents, the fundamental transformation of society rolls on. But when the West projects weak leadership and flawed thinking, the transformation rolls a little faster. First up this week is retired U.S. Navy Captain James Fanell (gcsp.ch), who looks at the disconnect in the Western press between what's happening in Ukraine and the reality of why it's happening. Weakness in American government has given Vladmir Putin the green light to attack Ukraine. Captain Fanell also discusses how China is taking advantage of our weakness to fill Russia's new economic void.
The globalists' overall plan, called the Great Reset, involves transforming the economic landscape. Like with China's social credit score, this transformation will involve what is known as ESG scores for businesses. Here to examine ESG is Pat Wood (technocracy.news), Editor of Technocracy News and Executive Director of Citizens for Free Speech. He shows how companies are being forced to comply with sustainable development and climate change policies in order to survive. Companies are evaluated subjectively based on leftist narratives rather than objectively. Once ESG takes hold, it will affect not only the business marketplace, but also our ability to function within it.
Finally this week, we take a look at the growth of multi-state regional government-like groups who push their destructive change agent policies. Joining us is Kathleen Marquardt (americanpolicy.org), Vice President and Director of the American Policy Center. In her area in Tennessee, one of these groups has popped up and she describes what the group is doing and her efforts to stop them. These quasi-governmental and public entities are actually public-private partnerships designed to seize private property by end-running the Constitution.
