Border security

When it comes to declaring sanctuary status, one side of the political aisle says one thing while the other side says the opposite – but it all depends on the issue. First up this week with an even-handed conversation is Jacob Sullum (reason.com), Senior Editor at Reason Magazine. He looks at the questions: what does sanctuary status mean? Should federal laws apply in states? If so, how would that work? Where have the courts stood on these issues? If the rules are good for one side, they should be just as good for the other. The trick is getting both sides to agree to abide by these rules.

It takes someone who grew up under communism to see what's truly happening to America today. Paul Dragu (thenewamerican.com), Communications Director for the John Birch Society, grew up in communist Romania and recognizes many facets from the Communist Manifesto playing out here right now. The Deep State has gradually and intentionally infiltrated academia and other institutions to enact their agenda. But after years of ignoring the warning signs, people are beginning to wake up.

To be called an Uncle Tom today if you're black has a connotation of negativity and of being a sellout. But for those who actually read the book, that doesn't make any sense. Our last guest this week is Derrick Wilburn (poccinterns.com), Founder and Executive Director of Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives. He discusses the essence of Uncle Tom, the man, as well as the book. The ignorance by those who use Uncle Tom as a slur is a product of the radical policies in today's schools that either teach untruths about history and literature or outright forbid teaching them altogether.

John finishes up today's show, analyzing the toxic phenomenon of Wokeism, the new American orthodoxy, a topic written by Larry Eubank in The New English Review.

When it comes to sanctuary cities, whether in regards to immigration or guns or marijuana, one side says one thing and the other side says another. What's the whole story? Back with us today for an even-handed conversation is Jacob Sullum (reason.com), Senior Editor at Reason Magazine. He examines the specifics of what sanctuary status means in regards to state versus federal, who can do what, and what cities and states are actually saying when they declare sanctuary status. Should federal laws apply in states? If so, how would that work? Who has jurisdiction and why? Where have the courts stood on these issues? We look at all of that and more on today's show.

A lot of focus on immigration security surrounds the border with Mexico, but with the current administration's proposed policies, should the focus be elsewhere? Back with us after a long hiatus is former U.S. immigration Senior Special Agent Michael Cutler (michaelcutler.net). Many people are being let through the border now, few with any interview or investigation, and are then bused off to parts of the country's interior. Mr. Cutler looks at the need to beef up interior enforcement. He also explains how these new policies could lead to even more people coming across the border through family petitions. But with no investigation, fraud and even worse crimes could increase.

How did we ever get to a point where we have such rampant cancel culture in Western civilization? Opening the show this week, John looks at the change in education over the past three decades from logical thinking to consensus thinking. As a result, people have built safe spaces when they are faced with facts antithetical to their worldview. Shaming us isn't working anymore so they have moved on the next step – cancel culture.

What are the consequences of unfettered immigration and the reluctance to identify problems due to political correctness? Christine Douglass-Williams (www.frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine, joins us to discuss open immigration in her home country of Canada, how certain organizations are able to take advantage of leftist policies, and the possibility of terrorists entering the U.S. along the border with Canada.

John finishes up this week examining two important topics. First, he tackles the economic reality facing the U.S. and the world along with the traps and pitfalls that mark the leadup to a socialist takeover of an economy. Finally, he covers how the climate change narrative is failing after emissions were lowered this year, but at the cost of lives and the economy. It doesn't stop die-hard climate alarmists, though, from doing anything they can to keep the narrative alive.
