bureaucracy

The Supreme Court is supposed to determine the constitutionality of laws, not give people what they want. John opens the show this week looking at some of the recent Supreme Court decisions – namely the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade – and gives a history of judicial activism. The crazy narratives that have been pushed for so many years have now hit reality and the pendulum is starting to swing the other way. People are beginning to see through the Marxist ideology and post-modern thinking that saturates our society today.

An example of a narrative that is still firmly entrenched, at least in California, is that of environmental activism and the state's policy on water. Joining us is Edward Ring (edwardring.com), Senior Fellow at the Center for American Greatness. These activists are adamant that no desalination plants be built in California, even though the process would help the state's water issues. He debunks the 'bad for the environment' talking points and shows how California has become a defacto communist state of crushing bureaucracy.

Finally this week, we look to Ukraine since there's still a war going on there. Reuben Johnson, our Ukraine expert, is back with us to give updates on how ineffective the Russian military has been, mostly from poor leadership. He also addresses rumors about Vladimir Putin's health and comments on the recent attack on a Ukraine shopping center.

By now, most of you know that California is a state of dysfunction, especially as it concerns their water problem. But the problem is more with policy than it is with water. Joining us today is Edward Ring (edwardring.com), Senior Fellow at the Center for American Greatness. Climate activist groups are dead set against the building of desalination plants, despite the proof that the desalination process would help greatly the state's water problem. He debunks the activists' talking points and shows the total bureaucracy that firms go through to get anything done in California. It has all the hallmarks of a communist state.

John often tackles the question: how did we get to where we are today? That's an important question, but so is: where are we heading? To lead off the show this week, John combines the two questions, looking at all the puzzle pieces affecting us today. He tackles the situation with Russia and Ukraine as well as inflation, oil prices, climate change, the push to discontinue fossil fuels, and the state of U.S. currency as it relates to the world. He shows how we got to where we are today and where we could end up tomorrow.

To better understand the bigger picture, today's millennials and gen-zees need to shed the progressive ideology they're taught in schools and adopt a facts over feelings approach to thinking. Joining us today is Jason Hill (jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago. He discusses politics, education, and culture and gives us hope in the face of the discouragement we see every day. He relates his experience with students and how many of them are beginning to wake up to the fact that something is wrong and maybe the truth really is more important than feelings.

John finishes up recapping the current situation we find ourselves in, once again putting the puzzle pieces together with the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the global economy, and the always pervasive climate change narrative. We are flying into a perfect storm; a storm caused by decades of insane policies. But God is our anchor and our hope and we should always pray for His guidance in our lives.

The signs pointing to where we are now have been out there for quite a while, but now that we're seeing severe worldwide issues, it's important to piece everything together. John flies solo today, analyzing a number of geopolitical chess pieces to produce an understandable picture. He looks at the situation with Russia and Ukraine as well as inflation, oil prices, climate change, the push to discontinue fossil fuels, and the state of U.S. currency as it relates to the world. All of these things are interrelated and shows us not only how we got to where we are, but also gives a clear picture of where we're heading..

Governor Glenn Youngkin won the Virginia governor's race last November largely because parents weren't happy about the outgoing governor's policies and mandates. The new governor has undone those policies but now faces legal challenges from progressives. We welcome to the program former Deputy Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Virginia, Mr. Ken Davis. He looks at the battles Youngkin is facing as well as the legality of executive orders and the increasing irrelevance of legislatures. Whenever attempts at reforming government are enacted, government bureaucrats fight back.

It's difficult to fight against any enemy – whether it be a vast army or hordes of ideological Marxists slowly eroding the foundation of your country – if you don't know who you are as a society. America has lost what it means to be American. Opening up this week, we are joined by author and cryptography expert Paul Rosenberg (freemansperspective.com). He points out that America has lost its metanarrative. We used to build things, care about things. But today, our proud heritage of innovation and freedom has fallen victim to a Marxist enemy intent on destroying us. Can we fight back? Only if we remember who we are.

One way Marxists have eroded our national identity is by long marching through the institution of education. Parents must take back their children's education with a long march of their own. We welcome Joe Murray (joemurrayenterprises.com), attorney, teacher, and founder of Joe Murray Enterprises to the show. He discusses ways public education should change to allow students to think for themselves instead of being indoctrinated. There are realistic steps parents can take right now to start marching in the other direction.

John finishes out the show this week looking at the different stages of totalitarianism, using the Canadian government's tactics against the Freedom Convoy trucker protest as an example.

John flies solo on today's podcast, looking at the dysfunctional government messaging about the trucker protests in Canada and about our media in this country. For years, progressives and leftists have shouted praise for protests, occupation of buildings, and disruption of schools – all in the name of democracy. But now, when their ideological foes are protesting, it's a threat and must be stopped. It becomes nearly impossible to march in lockstep with a group of people that keeps changing directions and doesn't bother to tell you. The only thing constant in this are the double standards. Or massive flippage, as John calls it.

John flies solo on today's podcast, looking at the Canadian truckers' protest convoy and how it highlights a few things about totalitarian governments.  He shows the different stages governments, like Canada now, go through in trying to hold on to their power.  When they are threatened by protest, especially by a large group, they try name calling, shaming, and even brute force to shut down dissent.  John goes over the possible outcomes of a protest like this.  We always advocate to stand up for truth and what's right.  The truckers in Canada have been standing up – or rolling out in their case – against totalitarianism.
