Thomas Jefferson started in the 1790s what was called then the Democrat Party. So why are democrats angry with him now and removing his statue in New York City? Back with us to answer this question is author and historian Daniel Mallock (danielmallock.com). Jefferson was brilliant but he had his faults. Many people say that those in Revolutionary times should have known better and rejected slavery, but it's because of what has happened in our history that resulted in our overcoming slavery. The far left are either ignorant of history due to a failing education system, or they do know history but fundamentally hate this country. Daniel and John look at ways to reach out to these people.
Studio roundtable today as John, Carol, and Steve look at the potentially dour future of the country after last night's Georgia election and the most likely coronation of Joe Biden after today's debate in Congress. What's happening today is similar to the lead up to the American Revolution in the 1770s. In both eras, the people were not being represented by their government officials. Is there anything we can do? Will it take a revolution today or can we solve things peacefully? It's tough to see today, but the crew gives hope for the future.
The country needs reform – the question is how will that be accomplished? Joining us today is Larry Klayman (freedomwatchusa.org), Founder and Chairman of Freedom Watch, who shares details from his new book, It Takes a Revolution. The American people can take back this country from the corrupt bureaucrats by rising up and forcing change. He looks at citizen juries and citizen's arrests as good starting points. What we're experiencing now may very closely mirror the days leading up to 1776 – the people are not represented by their leaders.
Where does cancel culture lead? In today's podcast, John looks at the history of revolutions, the events that led up to them – including different iterations of cancel culture – and the reason why they succeed or fail. Logic and reason play a big part. If logic and reason move forward decoupled from God, revolutions always fail. America's revolution coupled logic and reason with morality and we are still here. Basing a government on morals allows more controls on government and more freedoms to the people. That's why cancel culture, which is absent from morality, has never worked, cannot work now, and will never work.
We are told that our vote should count, but does it in the end? In this week's boralogue, John looks at the impeachment inquiry of President Trump and the seeming override of the Brexit vote in England. How did we get to the point where votes are being subverted? We've gone from absolutes and solid truth to rejecting God and relative values. That's why we're seeing what's happening today. We need to get back to the truth.
The people's vote in Great Britain is being overridden regarding Brexit as it has been three years since the referendum vote and the country still hasn't left the European Union. Pastor Peter Simpson (www.realchristianity.org), Minister at Penn Free Methodist Church outside London, discusses the Christian case for Brexit, the erosion of Christianity in his country, and the status of free speech among UK Christians.
A few weeks ago, Brian Wang (www.nextbigfuture.com), Tech Blogger at Next Big Future, joined us to examine our country's path to Big Brother surveillance. Brian returns this week to follow up on his report, adding that both the government and big tech companies are using predictive analysis tools to guess what someone may be thinking or planning to do.
After John covers a few stories including impeachment, UFOs, and the middle class, he welcomes back to the program Vishal Mangalwadi (www.revelationmovement.com), President and Founder of the Book of the Revelation Movement. In his final installment, Vishal discusses the meaning of truth as it is found in the Bible versus what it means in society.
John's quote of the week:
"The reason rights are in jeopardy is if someone doesn't believe in absolutes, they cannot believe in consistency and constancy in the execution of law. That is what you're seeing in Great Britain and that is what you're seeing here. 'We don't like the law so we'll ignore it.' If everyone does that, what do we have? Chaos."
In this week's Extras segment, we play John's famous extended boralogue from July 2014 titled 'Tale of Three Cities:' London, Paris, and Madrid. John compares and contrasts the ideologies and revolutions originating in these places and shows how unique America's revolution was. Can we learn from history?
