Those on the Left proclaim that the Capitol incursion in January was an assault on democracy, but soon after, they began the process to oust someone who isn't even in office, going against the requirements set forth in the Constitution. Why the contradiction? John explores some logical and reasonable questions into situations that have neither logic nor reason. For example, ideologies are declared absolutely while at the same time, those that declare them are living under the belief that there is no absolute truth. Why does this happen? John looks at the five characteristics of postmodern thought. It shows that there is no basis in reality to justify this reasoning and so contradictions always pop up. When logic and reason are applied to debate these contradictions, postmodernists will always lose the debate. That's where censorship comes in. If you can't debate it, you must suppress it. No country can long survive in this type of climate.
The court system in America was set up to be free of politics so that justice could be blind. Well, not only has the blindfold been thrown away, but the judges are all defined by the party of the politician who appointed them. Retired engineer John Green joins us today to discuss the politicization of the court system at all levels in the United States, from activist judges finding things in the Constitution that weren't written there to legislating from the bench to avoid the amendment process. Is there a way to get the blindfold back over the eyes of Lady Justice?
With a liberal administration returning to power in the United States, what does that mean for the future of the Second Amendment? Joining us today is Michael Hammond (gunowners.org), Legislative Counsel for Gun Owners of America. His organization has been successful in pushing back against red flag laws and other legislation hurtful to the Second Amendment. The key to staying successful, he states, is keeping the filibuster. How successful will this battle be to preserve the right of the people to keep and bear arms?
John finishes up today's podcast analyzing the phenomenon known as "the attack of the comma, buts" and the end-running of the rule of law and the Constitution.
Is it really possible that the U.S. could see a social credit score like they have in China? Caught up in that question is the recent squabble between tech companies over data privacy. Back with us today to go over this topic is Russ White (rule11.tech), nationwide expert in network infrastructure architecture. Russ and John discuss who really has ownership of your personal data, the impacts of net neutrality, and the rampant partisan hypocrisy of the Big Tech companies. The ultimate question is: who controls what and what will our rights be? They also look at how from a technological perspective, most everything is in place for Biblical prophecies to come true. As John has said, if this isn't the End Times, then it's one heck of a dress rehearsal.
We have heard a lot about the Great Reset lately but what exactly does that entail? It was laid out recently at the World Economic Forum. John welcomes back long-time friend of the show, researcher and writer Carl Teichrib (gameofgods.ca), who attended the Forum a couple of weeks ago. He explains some of the buzzwords from this year's Forum, including age-old favorites like sustainability, worldwide unity, peace through global government, data-driven management, and saving the planet. He also throws in a new catchphrase making the rounds: stakeholder capitalism. And the country that is held up as a pristine model of what this new globalist system would look like: China. He also covers the religious nature of the globalist vision, which features a new gospel for the earth. He notes how many religious groups, including Christian ones, are being roped into the Great Reset ideology.
Yesterday we started a conversation with Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson about the geopolitical outlook between China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the U.S. Today we continue that discussion, looking at the state of America's biased media and comparisons to Russian TV and newspapers. John and Reuben also discuss what will become of the Republican party following President Trump's exit from the White House and they take a deep dive into the worldview of the Left and how that has influenced Western society.
Today we continue our thread on geopolitics with part one of a two-part interview with Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson (thebulwark.com). He examines the precarious position Taiwan finds itself with China potentially emboldened to take over the small island country. He also looks at the sudden cancellation of Hong Kong passports, the history of Hong Kong along with China prematurely breaking the 1997 agreement, and finally China's social credit score system – and how we're seeing a similar version of it pop up here in the United States.
Join us tomorrow for part two of the conversation with Reuben Johnson where he and John discuss several cultural issues in the U.S.
Kevin Clinesmith, the FBI lawyer who pled guilty to falsifying evidence during the Spygate scandal in 2016, was recently sentenced to probation – effectively a slap on the wrist. Do we have an uneven playing field in the U.S. justice system? Joining us today is Thomas Lifson, Founder and Editor of American Thinker (americanthinker.com). He reviews the case, which involves Carter Page and the Trump campaign, and points out that some people get judicial benefits while others do not. The establishment circles their wagons and always seems to weather the storm while the little guy is firmly entrenched under the judicial bus.
China is positioning itself in various arenas to become the world's biggest superpower and thus de facto leader on the world stage. Retired U.S. Navy Intelligence Captain James Fanell is back with us today from his home in Switzerland to lend his geopolitical expertise. He looks at the disingenuous words coming from Chinese leadership about how they want unity and peace, but their actions say something completely different. Under President Trump, we were attempting to stay even with China, but with the new Biden administration, the fear is we will lose any tactical advantage we once had. From a military buildup that is vastly outpacing the U.S. to their efforts at information warfare online, China is set to surpass the U.S. as the world's most dominant superpower.
Back after a long hiatus, John sits down as interviewee with Lee Lancaster on KYMS radio here in the Inland Northwest. The two cover a variety of topics including the fascist censorship we're seeing online, the inevitable push by leftists to take over or outright eliminate the church, and how the education system in the West has become completely hostile to the Christian faith.
