The slippery slope fallacy is the claim that a particular action will trigger a negative chain of events, positing as true a number of vaguely defined steps in between that draws out an emotional response. John leads off the show this week looking at a couple of slippery slope examples in the news today.
We then transition to the topic of fraud and how many people have claimed that there was plenty of it in the 2020 election. More than a year later, technology has uncovered a portion of that fraud, known as phantom voting. We welcome fraud detection expert Jay Valentine (contingencysales.com) to the show. He explains what phantom voting is, how sovereign fraud is corrupting the voting process, and reveals that certain groups were allowed real-time access to voting information the night of the election. This fraud must be reformed if the integrity of this country is to remain intact.
When the Biden administration shamefully pulled out of Afghanistan, Americans and equipment were left behind. But Afghan women, who had enjoyed a little freedom while U.S. troops were there, also became trapped after the pullout. Joining us today is Dr. John Barber (johnbarberbooks.com), Professor of Theology at Whitefield Theological Seminary. He is an expert on the plight of women in the Middle East and North Africa and shows us what life is like for women there. He also looks at ways Christians can help.
Finally, we dive into the free speech issue, especially where it concerns censorship by Big Tech elites in Silicon Valley. Freelance writer Michael Tennant (thenewamerican.com) wraps up the show this week discussing Section 230, search result manipulation, and the public-private workaround being perpetrated by the government and Big Tech.
When the Biden administration shamefully pulled out of Afghanistan, they left behind many Americans. But the women of Afghanistan are trapped there as well. Interesting that feminist groups aren't outraged about how women are treated in that country. Joining us today is Dr. John Barber (johnbarberbooks.com), Professor of Theology at Whitefield Theological Seminary. He explains the role of women in the Arab culture so that those of us in the West can better understand. He looks at the way women are treated, how Western progressives excuse it, and what Christians can do to help.
Reality eventually becomes real for everyone and when it does, it usually hurts. On today's podcast, John looks at several news stories including how the Jewish community in America is experiencing violence following the recent Israel-Gaza war and they're beginning to wake up to the reality that the Left, the side most of them have been on for awhile, really don't like them. Also, countries in Europe are facing the reality of cultural violence following the massive Islamic migration of a few years ago. Even the Vatican is encountering the truth after releasing statements on abortion. The mainstream media is to a certain extent facing reality, though they constantly weave narratives to cover it up. Reality always becomes real. How you handle it will determine how much pain you'll be in when it happens.
Professors, business owners, social media users, and others have fallen victim to the political correctness police. In this week's boralogue, John gives examples of those who have at best been forced to self-censor or at worst have been fired. Standing up for the truth can cost you but it is our duty to continue to stand. Choosing the right side of truth has important implications later.
John then shines a light on the media and their role in the collusion / impeachment / derangement effort against President Trump. This massive effort, however, just may blow back in the Left's faces as more and more information comes to light. Clips from investigative reporter John Solomon are featured.
Politics does indeed make strange bedfellows. Senior Contributor to the Federalist Ben Weingarten (www.benweingarten.com) joins us to analyze the nexus between the far left in this country and Islam as well as the Soviet Union, showing that their mission is/was to bring down Western civilization. He urges conservatives to wake up and recognize that they are in a worldview windstorm against progressives.
Finally, we welcome author and historian Daniel Mallock (www.danielmallock.com) back to the program to compare the political rancor we see today with that during the time of Lincoln and Reagan and Jefferson. He also explores the disconnect between the Right and the Left today and the need for honest conversations to bridge the gap.
John's quote of the week:
"The truth causes division. It causes division between those who would like to stand on the truth and those who would like to stand on the lie for the sake of their own sin nature. The Bible assures us that right up until the time of the end, there will be both types of people. When the time comes to stand, which side will you be on?"
In this week's Extras segment, we play another double feature from days of Steel yore. First up is Steve Turley from September 2016 where he discusses the topic of media hypocrisy. We then transition to Thomas Lifson from January 2018 where he covers Trump Derangement Syndrome and the media's role in it.
