Before we get to debunking reports and theories rooted more in narratives than truth, we begin the show this week with a very real update on the rate hike announced Wednesday by the Federal Reserve. John explains why we're seeing huge inflation numbers and why the Fed did what they did.
The first report we need to look at is the recently released study on supposed right-wing violence from the Anti-Defamation League. We welcome to the program Mike Hill (jbs.org), retired U.S. Air Force Captain and former member of the Florida House of Representatives. He shows how data in politically charged reports like this are often skewed and/or taken out of context. It is done to push forth a narrative – in this case the push for more gun control. Mr. Hill gives the real reason for the shootings we've seen lately, and it has nothing to do with the solutions proposed by “need to do something” politicians.
Another topic that needs serious discussion is the level of education being offered to minority children. Apparently now, teaching minorities to understand correct grammar is considered racist! Joining us to debunk that sentiment is Kay Hymowitz (city-journal.org), Editor at the City Journal and Fellow at the Manhattan Institute. She and John discuss how all of the freedoms, laws, and advancements that we have in the West are all possible because of a proper education. Elites are denying everyone – of all racial groups – a positive step forward by making assertions like this.
Finally this week, John looks at the long-predicted day of reckoning caused by severe government mismanagement. It's not on the horizon folks, it's here. There is a perfect storm of energy policy inflation and monetary inflation coupled with several concerning geopolitical events. The current administration is doing nothing to help and in many cases is pushing narratives that make things worse. People are starting to realize that things are very wrong. The battle we're in right now is between those who want to uphold the Constitution and those who want to destroy it.
How did we ever get to the point where teaching children to read and write is looked at as a racist act? Joining us today to answer that is Kay Hymowitz (city-journal.org), Editor at the City Journal and Fellow at the Manhattan Institute. To say that minority children shouldn't have to learn correct grammar because that's racist is, by itself, a racist statement. The freedoms, the laws, and the advancements of Western culture have all been possible due to a proper education. With this racist grammar assertion, elites are negating and denying everything that gave everybody – from every racial group – a positive step forward. That's the insanity of where we are.
If narratives coming out of the media seem wildly inconsistent and are flopping around, there's a reason for that. John opens the show this week looking at the outrage and "flippage" seen in stories about both gun control following recent shootings and Nancy Pelosi being denied communion because of her stance on abortion. The media pound away at a narrative, bury facts, and distort the truth in order to shape public perception on a story. That erosion of truth infects people's minds and that's reflected at the polls. It's dangerous to the freedoms that are the foundation of our country.
Another example of the media distorting the truth to advance a narrative can be found in a story about a riot at a funeral in Israel. An Al Jazeera journalist was killed covering a story and at her funeral, violence broke out. Joining us to discuss is Tamar Sternthal (camera.org), Director of the Israel office of CAMERA. She highlights how different press agencies immediately pointed the finger at Israeli troops as the cause for the violence, purposefully overlooking Palestinian instigation – just to bash Israel.
Finally this week, we look at the declining state of public education in this country. Joining us is Dr. Diane Davis (oneroomschooltraining.com), founder of the One-Room Schoolhouse method of teaching. She describes the benefits of parents taking charge of their child's education and the advantages of teaching in a small classroom. If children can learn how to think, not what to think, perhaps public perception will not be influenced by the erosion of truth and the future of our country can be saved.
We recently chatted with Chaplain E. Ray Moore about the importance of a private, Christian education over what you get from public schools. A colleague of his has developed a method that allows parents to take control of their child's schooling, giving them the tools they need. Joining us today is the Founder of that method, known as the One-Room Schoolhouse method, Dr. Diane Davis (oneroomschooltraining.com). She describes the benefits of having a small classroom – yes, in one room – where children of several different grade levels gather to learn together. Her most important focus: that parents should be the ones in charge of what their children learn.
If you put your kids in secular, atheist, Marxist seminaries (aka public schools), don't be surprised when you get secular, atheist, Marxists out. What is the best alternative? First up this week, we welcome Chaplain E. Ray Moore (exodusmandate.org), Co-Founder of Frontline Ministries. He describes what his organization is doing to get children out of public education and into private, Christian schools. He reveals his opinions on vouchers, charter schools, and running for school boards. He also urges pastors to get off the sidelines and defend the truth and biblical education.
What would America's founding fathers say about the state of not only education, but our entire country today? Joining us is author Steven Rabb (thefoundersspeech.com), who just wrote a book describing how everything the founders warned us against is now happening. There is a constant end running of the Constitution by those in the swamp who strenuously fight against reform. This has resulted in the chaos we're now seeing. How do we stop it? Return to the founders' idea of what the United States should be.
Finally this week, we dive into the future of the world's economy. Will it be full of digital currency and the problems that come with it? Joining us to chat about that is Chris Brady (chrisbrady.com), Founder and CEO of Life Platform. He looks at the future of Bitcoin, the plans of the world's central banks and the inevitable rollout of debt to create digital currencies. He also examines the dangers of going with a digital currency, especially the tracking aspect and the programmability standards.
Referencing public schools, John has often said that if you put your kids in secular, atheist, Marxist seminaries, don't be surprised when you get secular, atheist, Marxists out. Joining us today is E. Ray Moore (exodusmandate.org), Co-Founder and Board President of Frontline Ministries. He describes what his organization is doing to get children out of public education and into private, Christian schools. He discusses the futility of running for school boards, the disadvantages of vouchers and charter schools, and the need for Christian schools to operate free from any government control – including funding. And pastors need to step up, defend the truth, and back biblical education.
The Supreme Court heard arguments this week in a case involving a Mississippi ban on all abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy. There is more to the abortion debate than the usual topics. Opening the show this week, John highlights the shifting definition of an unborn baby over the years by the pro-abortion crowd. It went from a clump of cells to maybe alive to 'OK, it's a human.' But they also say that while it may be a human, it's still not a person. This gives them the so-called moral justification to perform abortions. It's what the Nazis did – they depersonalized Jews so that they could justify places like Auschwitz.
There is a lot going on around the world so we shift our focus to global geopolitics. Back with us this week is Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He and John discuss military aircraft sales in Dubai involving the UAE and Russia, which could indicate Russia's shift away from talks with Iran. Also, Russia is building up their military on the border with Ukraine and the migrant situation at the Belarus-Poland border is heating up. Plus, Covid misinformation is not unique to the U.S. – he shows how other countries are dealing with it.
Finally this week, we dive back into the school boards versus parents issue with Nicole Neily (defendinged.org), Founder and President of Parents Defending Education. She examines how shameless school boards and teachers' unions have been in the education arena and how it has galvanized parents to stand up for their rights. She offers ways that parents can fight back against educrat tyranny and protect their children.
School boards are declaring that they know best for your child. The FBI has been weaponized to go after parents who speak up as if they were terrorists. What can parents do? Back with us today is Nicole Neily (defendinged.org), Founder and President of Parents Defending Education. She and John look at how brazen school boards and teachers' unions have been and how it has galvanized parents to stand up for their rights. They discuss ways parents can fight back and protect their children from the educrat tyranny in today's schools.
One of the few silver linings to come out of the Covid pandemic is that parents were jolted awake by what their children were being exposed to in schools. As a result, homeschool enrollment – and rejection of public schools – skyrocketed. Joining us today is Annie Holmquist (intellectualtakeout.org), Editor at The Intellectual Takeout and a former homeschool student. The tipping point for homeschooling to gather massive influence is when 10% of school age children are enrolled. A recent Census Bureau study states that as of the fall of 2020, the percentage of homeschool children in the United States has risen to 11%. Why has it gone up and where will it go from here?
Sometimes genuine liberals follow the facts, have an awakening, and/or reject woke ideology. Only then can you have a real, substantive conversation. Joining us today for that real conversation is a genuine liberal, Neil Kiernan (v-radio.us), host of the V-Radio podcast. In an extended chat, he and John discuss the toxic nature of biased journalism, the best ways to reach people from the other side of the ideological aisle, and their individual experiences battling the globalist agenda. More and more people – on both sides – are getting sick of the craziness and moving to more rational and sane conversations.
What is the best way to eradicate critical race theory from our schools? The answer may surprise you. Rounding out our show this week is attorney and writer ME Boyd (missconstitution.com), known as Miss Constitution. After recounting the history of education before and after the 1962 decision to outlaw prayer in schools, she posits that CRT is a religion itself and should, based on precedent, be banned from education. It is far more coercive in its religious-like fervor to rid our schools of morality, honor, and faith and replace it with hatred and division. So it should be removed.
