Censorship seems to be a popular activity these days, but it has picked up a surprising champion – the mainstream media! Joining us today is John Tierney (city-journal.org), Contributor Editor to the City Journal, who points out that censorship had been ramping up, but since the Capitol violence, it has been unleashed virtually unabated. And as crazy as it sounds, woke leftist media outlets seem to be welcoming it. Conservatives are being banned, but when leftists called for violence during the Trump administration, nothing was done. It's a dangerous plan to ignore the freedoms found in the Constitution – when that happens, totalitarianism isn't far behind.
Back after a long hiatus, John sits down as interviewee with Lee Lancaster on KYMS radio here in the Inland Northwest. The two cover a variety of topics including the fascist censorship we're seeing online, the inevitable push by leftists to take over or outright eliminate the church, and how the education system in the West has become completely hostile to the Christian faith.
Many individual conservatives have been cancelled online for speaking against the leftist orthodoxy, but what happens when an entire website is wiped out? First up on the show this week, we speak with Russ White (rule11.tech), nationwide expert in network infrastructure architecture. He looks at how some Big Tech companies have a virtual monopoly on what gets seen online. If they don't like your speech then you no longer have a digital footprint. This violates free speech and is dangerous. In other words, it's fascism.
Why do voters in minority areas continuously vote for a party that most of the time does not represent their values? John welcomes conservative author and speaker Autry Pruitt (newjourneypac.org) to the show, who examines how Republicans have dropped the ball in minority neighborhoods and churches. He also explains how pastors and church members reconcile their faith with the doctrines of the democrat party. There is a shift to the left in society and in the theology of the church.
The new totalitarianism springing up in the West will praise socialism as a way to infiltrate the Christian church. How then will the church be affected and how should it fight back? Wrapping up the show this week is Dr. Erwin Lutzer (moodymedia.org), Pastor Emeritus of Moody Bible Church, who debunks the myth that socialism and the Bible are compatible. The church is facing many assaults, which is when leftists offer their version of socialistic hope. But Christianity offers true hope and that must be what we lovingly preach moving forward.
It's bad enough to attack and de-platform a single person for speaking against the leftist orthodoxy. It's even worse to shut down an entire internet site or app for the same thing. Joining us today is Russ White (rule11.tech), nationwide expert in network infrastructure architecture. He explains how some Big Tech companies have a virtual monopoly on what gets resolved and what gets seen online, so if they suddenly decide that they don't like your speech then, poof, you no longer have a digital footprint. This is dangerous, it violates free speech, and it looks an awful lot like fascism.
We've seen with Parler what Big Tech can do when platforms challenge not only their preferred narrative, but also their popularity in the marketplace. On today's podcast, we speak with wireless industry expert Rex Lee (mysmartprivacy.com), founder of My Smart Privacy. He discusses Big Tech's selectivity and hypocrisy in censorship and the importance of Section 230. He also looks at what Parler and other companies need to do in the future to keep from being completely wiped out.
For years we've been subjected to story after story about collusion. Today, however, the media, Big Tech, and politicians on the Left are colluding to wipe away any person or company who dissents from the woke leftist point of view. Joining us today is Adam Weiss (amworldgroup.com), Founder and CEO of AMW Group, a New York-based PR firm. He looks at how cancel culture is rearing its ugly head far more than it has in the past now that the election is over and President Trump is leaving the White House. He relates his experiences in the public relations arena as well as the collusion behind Parler's removal from the public sphere. The Left is hoping to get back to their version of normal post-Trump and for them, ‘normal' consists of censorship and de-platforming of anyone who dissents from the current woke narrative.
Studio Round table today as John, Carol, and Steve sit down to discuss the state of things post-election and post-Capitol Hill violence. There is a paradigm shift happening. It's important to recognize what is going on and how to move forward. We cover what happened at the Capitol, comparisons to the Reichstag fire of 1933, and the push to impeach President Trump on his way out the door. We also look at the silencing of conservatives on social media and the fear that many are feeling about where our country is heading. Despite the fear and negativity, there is hope in how we move forward.
We hit the ground running this week with author and columnist Diane West (www.dianawest.net), who shows how the Marxist plan to destroy America goes back a century and the plan itself has been in plain sight the whole time. It is being enacted by the Deep State, whose actors have plotted to take down President Trump, and by Big Tech, who censoring information online and curtailing free speech.
Blatant election fraud just occurred in Belarus and the shock waves have radiated from Minsk all the way to Moscow. Defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson (www.thebulwark.com), is back with us from Kiev, Ukraine to look at Vladimir Putin's next move, the geopolitics of Eastern Europe, the U.S.'s involvement, and how China could benefit from the chaos.
What happens when a false narrative falls apart? In this week's boralogue, John looks at the three stages of a collapsing narrative, from explaining away of inconsistencies to shutting people up through censorship. Those of us who know the truth must then use our freedom of speech to counter with facts. Finally, when they've been caught with their hand in the cookie jar, they simply redesign the cookie jar by claiming they were always for the now evident truth and hope that no one notices. Moving on, not repentance, is the way of politics it seems.
Finally, we welcome back to the program conservative columnist Dr. Brian Joondeph (www.retinacolorado.com), who gives his theory on why the push for mail-in balloting is growing, and how the election will go in November, including references to the 20th amendment, a vote counting debacle, and potential legal battles.
The takeover of this country is underway, but who are the players involved? Author and columnist Diana West (www.dianawest.net) is back with us, showing how the Marxist plan to destroy America goes back a century and the plan itself has been in plain sight the whole time. Many of the markers in moving this revolution forward have been reached already.
Diana discusses the Deep State actors who tried to take down President Trump and their ties to communism and socialism. She also looks at the pushback against Marxism that's being hampered by Big Tech censorship with an iron fist on the not-so-free flow of information.
