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.

Joining us today is Jason Ross (liberty.edu), Interim Dean of the Helms School of Government at Liberty University. He takes a look at the history of slavery in the U.S. and puts into perspective our country's role in the practice. Slavery has existed in one form or another globally for all of human existence. Yes, even in the U.S. What sets America apart is that we got rid of it. Our founding documents and our Judeo-Christian foundation paved the way for this. And the narrative from CRT peddlers today that we are an irredeemable country because of racism simply does not hold up under the factual reality of our history.

ME Boyd: Coercive Racist Theory (CRT)

Wouldn't be great if we had precedent on our side that would prohibit CRT from being taught in schools? One legal scholar says we do. Joining us today is attorney and writer ME Boyd (missconstitution.com), known as Miss Constitution. She gives a history of education before and after prayer was deemed unconstitutional in 1962. But in that ruling and in subsequent ones, the Supreme Court ruled that religion in schools was coercive and therefore not allowed. Critical race theory 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.

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.

We've heard about critical race theory and woke indoctrination in schools, but what, if anything, are school boards doing about it? Here today is Julie Gunlock (iwf.org), Director of the Center for Progress and Innovation at the Independent Women's Forum. She describes the outrage that some parents are expressing after learning about what their children are being exposed to in the classroom. School boards have been largely obstinate in their support of CRT and have at times lashed out against the parents for their opposition. But parents are finally waking up, pushing back, and even running to replace these board members.

A Little American History Truth

Broadcast Running Time: 01:19:17

Happy Independence weekend everyone! It's important to learn the truthful history of our country, but the prevailing leftist narrative today is that because some of our Founding Fathers were slave owners, any good that they accomplished is forgotten. First up on this holiday show is Bill Federer (americanminute.com), President of AmeriSearch, Inc. He gives an accurate account of the history of slavery in America: who held slaves, who initiated the abolitionist movement, and where the two political parties have stood on the issue throughout the years. The narrative is that the U.S. is irredeemable because of our history with slavery. What is often ignored is that we also got rid of it.

Much of the immigration debate today is centered around our southern border, but with the current administration's proposed policies, should the focus be elsewhere? We welcome back former U.S. immigration Senior Special Agent Michael Cutler (michaelcutler.net) to the program. He asserts that because thousands of people are entering our country and then are bused away from the border, the U.S. needs to beef up interior enforcement. A majority of the time, there are no interviews and no investigations done, which means random U.S. cities are seeing a sudden spike of new un-vetted residents.

Finally this week, we look at the intriguing possibility of a constitutional crisis should these election audits prove President Trump actually won the election. Rounding out the show is retired engineer John Green, who examines the Supreme Court's role in election integrity prior to and after November 3. Because they refused to hear a case that could have cleared up some questions right after the election, SCOTUS could soon be in the unenviable position of determining if President Biden is really the President. A constitutional crisis may be looming in the coming months.

Bill Federer: True Story of Independence

Happy Independence Day everyone! Those on the Left constantly berate our Founding Fathers for being slave owners and that fact alone negates any and all good that they accomplished. Joining us for this Independence Day podcast is Bill Federer (americanminute.com), President of AmeriSearch, Inc. He gives the history of slavery in the world and specifically in North America. He cites examples of who were the slaveholders and what they ultimately thought of the practice, and who were the ones who started the anti-slavery movement. He also explains the reason for omitting slavery from the Declaration and how the two political parties have felt about slavery and the black population over the years. Slavery was horrible, but we got rid of it! An entertaining history lesson on today's podcast!

Critical race theory and the 1619 Project have set up shop in America's schools, but more and more parents are starting to realize that their children are being fed a steady diet of hate and incorrect history. April Few (uspie.org), Communications Director at U.S. Parents Involved in Education (U.S. PIE), describes how her organization has been involved in the fight against critical race theory and offers some solutions for parents who are facing this in their child's school. Critical race theory teaches children to hate our country and to hate each other. And April correctly identifies the ultimate goal behind CRT.

The politically correct narrative today is that when Christopher Columbus came to the New World, everything went downhill from there, starting with his mistreatment of the Aztecs.  Dr. Robert Royal (www.thecatholicthing.org), Editor-in-Chief of The Catholic Thing and an expert on Christopher Columbus, joins us today.  He looks at who Columbus was as a person and how his discovery of the New World eventually led to the greatness of Western society.  Today’s politically correct elite, though, perpetuate the anti-Columbus narrative which has led to revisionist history taught in schools and the tearing down of Columbus statues around the country.
