Facebook went down last week as a so-called whistleblower testified before Congress about the social media giant. That and a lot of other topics for today's show. Dr. Russ White (rule11.tech), expert on IT infrastructure and architecture, is back with us today for another spirited conversation. Was the whistleblower testimony a false flag? What do the powers that be want to ultimately do with censorship? John and Russ look at the Facebook outage as well as the security of Bitcoin. They also discuss deep learning programs and algorithms that make decisions in social media.
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.
Many of today's youth – college-age and younger – don't want to debate and don't seem capable of understanding history as it actually was. We welcome to the podcast today Anne-Christine Hoff (jarvis.edu), Professor of English at Jarvis Christian College in Texas. Younger liberals make ideological claims but can't back them up and can't defend them, but if you disagree with them, they will thunder condemnation against you, the racist dissenter. That is classic Marxism. Big Tech and the education system have teamed up to make young people what they are today. And many Christian universities don't seem to want to address these issues. That's unfortunate because if there is going to be a successful pushback against the indoctrination, it will have to come from Christians.
Blockchain had once been thought of as unhackable, but recent attempts to manipulate the system have caused all sorts of trouble for industries, such as cryptocurrencies, that use blockchain. Back with us today is infrastructure architect Dr. Russ White (rule11.tech), who, as always, has a fun and spirited conversation with John. Today, he explains what blockchain is, how it has become vulnerable, and the possible implications of foul play. He also gives an update on the disturbing union of Big Tech and Big Government.
Accusations of voter fraud and corrupted voting machines are still lingering around the last election, but there was another, much larger factor, that flew under the radar and left no paper trail. First up this week is Dr. Robert Epstein (aibrt.org), Senior Research Psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology. He shows how Big Tech companies, Google in particular, potentially shifted millions of votes in the 2020 election thanks to biased search results. He describes his research into ephemeral experiences online and weighs the good and bad ideas on how to reform our election process.
What do the Titanic and the modern day Church have in common? Author and former new ager Warren B. Smith (warrenbsmith.com) is back with us after a long hiatus to discuss his new book, The Titanic and Today's Church: A Tale of Two Shipwrecks. He covers a variety of interesting topics like automatic writing, the God within, and other New Age beliefs that are seeping into the Christian church today. Today's church has been warned countless times about the infiltration of New Age thinking. Will it face a similar result as the unsinkable ship?
John finishes up the program this week by looking back at the Texas cold snap in February, reviewing how the media spun their narratives and how the concept of green energy, worthwhile as it is, is not yet ready for prime time.
We've heard about voter fraud in the last election and possibly corrupted voting machines, but there was another, much larger factor, that flew under the radar and left no paper trail. Joining us today is Dr. Robert Epstein (aibrt.org), Senior Research Psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology. He looks at Big Tech companies, Google in particular, and the millions of votes that were potentially shifted thanks to biased search results. He describes his meticulous research showing bias and his efforts at producing a search result paper trail, not to mention whistleblower emails that prove Google spearheaded influence efforts. He also weighs the good and bad ideas on how to solve this problem.
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.
Theories abound, both reasonable and far off in conspiracy land about any number of topics. But ultimately, what is the truth? In this week's boralogue, John recounts the purpose behind this program: to get to the truth. What is the truth in any situation? It doesn't matter where it comes from or how sane or crazy it sounds. If it's the truth and it's provable, then it is newsworthy and something worth talking about.
If a drug can successfully help mitigate this virus, why then are so many people outraging against it? Dr. Brian Joondeph (www.retinacolorado.com), Retina Surgeon at Colorado Retina Associates joins us to answer that plus he examines off-label uses of medicines and covers the overreach by power-hungry politicians during this pandemic.
Troy Loeffler, John's son, makes a brief appearance to explain how statistics are being used, misused, and misunderstood by experts and media pundits in covering this crisis.
Never trust bloated bureaucracies, especially during an emergency. Seton Motley (www.lessgovernment.org), Founder and President of Less Government, sounds the alarm on the marriage of big government and big tech in tracking virus patients. His message: if you think it will stop there, you're crazy.
An often overlooked story amidst the chaos of news today is that of the emerging 5G network. Author and Commentator Ben Weingarten (www.benweingarten.com) is back with us to discuss the strategic implications of losing the communications and information transfer battle with China where it concerns 5G technology.
Finally, John and Producer Steve chat about the dysfunctional media and their coverage of the coronavirus pandemic, their strategy against the president, and some biased editing ahead of the November election.
John's quote of the week:
“You get to a positive destination through life and to be with the Lord with an infinite series of negative feedback corrections. But bad feedback is going to get you to a bad destination. … I have one bottom line on the program: getting to the truth in any kind of a situation is the most critical thing out there.”
On this week's extra segment, we play a round table discussion from 2015 on globalism. The participants are Dr. Dennis Cuddy, Pat Wood, and Brannon Howse. The topic is covered from spiritual, technocratic, and historical standpoints. Fantastic exchange between John and these guests.
