Critical race theory has taken hold in education, but now that it has been roundly rejected by a majority of the people, teachers unions and educrats are running away from it. First up on the show this week is Lindsey Curnutte (heritageaction.com), Press Secretary for Heritage Action for America. She looks at how the NEA seems to be washing their hands of CRT, erasing it completely from their website. She also promotes Heritage's new e-book on how to combat critical race theory, which you can find at crtbook.com.

Because of CRT and the many other Marxist theories that have been taught to children for decades, many of today's youth don't want to debate and don't seem capable of understanding history as it actually was. Anne-Christine Hoff (jarvis.edu), Professor of English at Jarvis Christian College in Texas, joins us. She discusses how ideological youth make claims they can't back up or defend and then call you a racist if you disagree with them. That is classic Marxism. She also looks at how many Christian universities haven't stepped up to address these issues.

This toxic ideology has spilled out of universities onto the street as our next guest can attest. Back with us is longtime friend of the show Dexter Van Zile (camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA. He describes the horrible treatment he endured during a Students for Palestine rally at a university campus in Boston. There's a degradation of civility in the U.S. and a significant part of that is aimed at Jews and supporters of Israel. That campaign is in part a result of untrue narratives being perpetuated throughout the education system.

We wrap up today's show with Tara Ross (saveourstates.com), Advisor at the group Save Our States. She examines the checks and balances that keep absolute power from any one branch of government, focusing on the For the People Act, which has been shot down for now but will not go away. She also looks at 2020 election-related procedures that did not go through proper channels and egregious overreach by governors during the pandemic.

The word psyops is most often used in describing crazy conspiracy theories, but there's actually psychological warfare being conducted on U.S. soil right now – and it's not a theory. Joining us today is Dexter Van Zile (camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA, and he describes what happened to him during a Students for Palestine rally at the University of Massachusetts campus in Boston. A few days later, a rabbi in Boston was stabbed 8 times. There's a degradation of civility in the U.S. and a significant part of that is aimed at Jews and supporters of Israel. This psychological, and at times physically violent, warfare is a result of untrue narratives being perpetuated throughout the media and in the education system.

Extended conversation this week as John and Carol sit down with father and son economic experts Donald and David McAlvany (mcalvanyica.com). The foursome team up to tackle a variety of topics, including current financial trends, burgeoning inflation, the upcoming economic reset, and the rapid onset of in-your-face socialism. They also take a look at the theological and philosophical side of things, as well as the importance of strategic thinking and long-term planning, and the need for little people to do big things each and every day.

We finish up this week with Tammi Rossman-Benjamin (amchainitiative.org), Co-Founder and Director of the AMCHA Initiative. She describes her efforts to combat a bill in California that would force critical race theory into high school curricula. She focuses on the toxic antisemitic nature of CRT and how it doesn’t attempt to eradicate racism and hate – it perpetuates them.

We're leading off the week with a two-guest episode. First up today is Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, Co-Founder and Director of the AMCHA Initiative (amchainitiative.org). She describes her efforts to combat a bill in California that would incorporate critical race theory into high school curricula. CRT has an element of antisemitism within it, perpetuating racism and hate rather than trying to fight it.

We then transfer to our second guest, Joe Collins (joecollinsforcongress.com), a Republican running for the U.S. House of Representatives in California's 43rd Congressional District (the one currently held by Maxine Waters). He looks at his district as it has been run by Ms. Waters, why he would be a much better fit in Congress, and why minorities always seem to vote for the very people that keep them down.

Liberation theology, social justice, and critical race theory have merged out of Marxism and have landed in Western schools. Joining us today is Steve Stotsky (camera.org), Senior Research Analyst at the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis. In order to combat the traditional moral-based Judeo-Christian education found in American schools and throughout the West, social justice Marxists push forward a distorted and narrative-driven curriculum. To fight against this, parents need to be more proactive, be more aware of what their children are learning, and make themselves heard.

Holy Land Against the World

Israel is very much in the news right now but the media narratives are not matching the facts on the ground. We open our Israel focus this week with John's analysis of what's happening in Israel versus the spin you're getting from the news. He looks at the Temple Mount riots, the violence in East Jerusalem, and rocket attacks from Gaza into Israel and Israel's response.

We then move to an often-pushed narrative in the media and on college campuses that Israel is an apartheid state. Here this week is someone who has lived in both South Africa and Israel, Reverend Malcolm Hedding (www.malcolmhedding.com), Associate Minister of World Outreach Church. He describes what conditions were like for blacks living under apartheid and what life is like today for Palestinians in Israel and there is positively no comparison. He also looks at how social justice in Western schools has led to the Israel apartheid narrative.

The U.S. economy – along with that of the rest of the world – is on shaky ground at the moment. John and Carol round out the show this week with a Steel on Steel economic summit to make sense of what's going on. They look at the difference between monetary policy and fiscal policy and how for the first time in history, fiscal policy is winning out. All safety measures and accountability have been removed from the economy and the whole thing is being held together by confidence. Once that confidence erodes, the whole system collapses.

One of the often-pushed narratives in the media and on college campuses is that Israel is an apartheid state. Here today to shine light on the subject is someone who has lived in both South Africa under apartheid and currently in Israel: Reverend Malcolm Hedding (malcolmhedding.com), Associate Minister of World Outreach Church. He describes what it was like living under apartheid, with absolutely horrible conditions for black people in South Africa. He then illustrates what life is like for Palestinians today in Israel and there is positively no comparison. He also covers the social justice colonialism narrative as well as the truth of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

First up this week, we look at the link between China's Communist Party and the World Health Organization. Claudia Rosett (www.iwf.org), Foreign Policy Fellow for the International Women's Forum, joins us to examine the coverup by both parties at the onset of the Covid outbreak and at every step since.

Next up, we welcome Jeremy Dys (www.firstliberty.org), Special Counsel for the First Liberty Institute, who dives into the First Amendment, specifically the free exercise of religion clause, how it's often ignored, and how religion in general is treated more like a virus today than Covid.

Recently, a video featuring a group of doctors speaking about the benefits of hydroxychloroquine was arbitrarily deleted from online sites due to supposed dangerous content. Pat Wood (www.citizensforfreespeech.org), Founder of Citizens for Free Speech, is back with us, to discuss his organization's experience with censorship and cancel culture.

We wrap up this week with long-time guest Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA, who looks at the case of a Jewish rabbi who, despite immense fanfare at his hiring, was quietly let go after his support for Israel was discovered. These leftist bullying tactics are spreading from college campuses into the streets and into everyday lives.
