Critical race theory is saturating our education system in America. What is it and how does it affect students? Back with us today is Clare Lopez (ccnationalsecurity.org), Member of the Citizens Commission on National Security. She looks at what critical race theory is, what it realistically tells students, and how it is actually creating division and racism rather than attempting to stop it. Why would anyone perpetuate this type of narrative? Because there is a deeper, more nefarious plan afoot, to seize power and fundamentally transform society.

Producer Steve sneaks in after Clare and John are finished to briefly look at how critical race theory is not compatible with the Christian church.

God is the Scientific Answer

Broadcast Running Time: 01:18:35

You've heard of the separation of church and state, but there's another separation that predates that: the separation of church and science. Do you have to be an atheist if you're a scientist? Back with us this week is Dr. Stephen Meyer (returnofthegodhypothesis.com), Director of the Center for Science and Culture at the Discovery Institute. He looks at the intelligent design of the universe and contrasts that with theories from the other side. He even dives into the multiverse controversy. He shows that church and science actually fit together and that God's hand is steering the wheel.

We pivot from intelligent design to the topic of racism for the rest of the show. It sounds like the U.S. is one big institutional and systemically racist country with even our founding documents oozing discrimination. That's what we're hearing, but is it actually true? Eric Kaufmann (manhattan-institute.org), Adjunct Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, is with us to discuss his detailed studies into perceived racism from different swaths of society and how no one, regardless of geography or skin color, is benefiting from media and political narratives. When words and sensitive topics like this become weaponized, discussion is shut down and the problem only worsens.

If race is supposedly dividing our country, how should Christians tackle the issue? Rounding out the show this week is Pastor Marcus Gill (marcusgillinternational.org), Founder and President of Marcus Gill International. He draws on his experience in the black community to shows how politicians don't really understand or want to help minorities. He goes on to urge Christians to love everyone, even those who hate you or simply don't agree with you. Despite what the mainstream narrative seems to be, the strength of our country is in both unity and diversity.

Institutional racism. Systemic racism. Racism interwoven into the foundation of this country. It sure sounds like the U.S. is one big racist country. But is it really? Joining us today is Eric Kaufmann (manhattan-institute.org), Adjunct Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, who discusses his own detailed research into the subject. He conducted studies of how people perceive racism based on their exposure to media and politicians and his results are telling. He dives into how people of different races react to the subject and how none of those communities are benefiting from media narratives. When words and sensitive topics like this become weaponized, discussion is shut down and the problem only worsens.

John has returned as a guest on Stand Up for the Truth, a Christian program broadcast on Q90FM out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Yesterday, John joined host David Fiorazo, to discuss a variety of topics, including the nature of woke-ism and how it will devour everyone in its path eventually. He also looks at how European socialist ideals are infiltrating America and the failure of both the media and education in this country.

The long rolling agenda to establish a New World Order has affected virtually every aspect of our lives, including education. In order to understand how we got to where we are, we need to recognize the history of this long rolling agenda. Back with us is long-time friend of the show, Dennis Cuddy, a historian and former Senior Associate at the Department of Education (newswithviews.com). He shows how educrats removed moral absolutes and Judeo-Christian values from schools and replaced them with leftist ideals and globalism.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..." We are all familiar with the words. But what did the founders mean by unalienable rights? Robert Curry (claremont.org), Board Member at the Claremont Institute, joins us to discuss the difference between alienable and unalienable rights and how the latter is under attack today. Common sense has been lost and in its place has emerged a post-truth ideology.

Finally this week, we attempt to look at free speech and journalism from a balanced, middle of the ground perspective with Matt Welch (reason.com), libertarian and Editor at Large at Reason Magazine. He looks at the difference between the cultural value and the legal value of free speech in society. He also goes over the history of journalism and how the media, an institution protected under the first amendment, has now come out against free speech.

Former lawyer, FBI agent, and talk show host G. Gordon Liddy passed away this week at the age of 90. John opens today's show commenting on the lack of decorum among leftist journalists who wrote several unflattering obituary stories about Mr. Liddy's passing. Instead of taking the high road, some journalists used the occasion to smear and defame.

We then reach into the Steel on Steel vault and pull out John's interview with G. Gordon Liddy from December 2002 where they discuss his book 'When I Was a Kid, This Was a Free Country'.

Have a safe Good Friday and a blessed Easter weekend.

In the constant battle for free speech between the left and the right in this country, very few people tackle the argument from the middle of the field. Joining us today is, as John calls him, the man in the middle of the row boat trying to stop it from toppling over. That man is Matt Welch (reason.com), Libertarian and Editor at Large at Reason Magazine. He looks at the state of free speech today and the difference between the cultural value and the legal value of free speech in society. He also covers the history of journalism and how media is now coming out against free speech in some areas. Will the war on our constitutional freedoms continue to get uglier?

Chewing Out Our Own Guts

When you get two radio veterans from opposite ends of the world with nearly a century of experience between them together, you get a fascinating conversation. John welcomes New Zealand radio legend Leighton Smith (www.newstalkzb.co.nz) to the show this week for an extended discussion on the state of the world today. They cover many topics, including Marxism's infiltration of the West, the real definition of truth, and the media's blatant narratives against the Right, as well as New Zealanders' battles with politically correct policies.

The leftists have permeated our institutions and our governments and many in Western countries have allowed it to happen. As John says, we have been very busy chewing out our guts and then assuming freedom will continue to stand. But when you use the very benefits of the society you're trying to destroy, the society itself will not stand.

In order to fight misinformation and conspiracy theories, Microsoft has teamed with other companies to trace online content back to its original author in what some people are calling a huge setback in data privacy. Back with us is Russ White (www.rule11.tech), nationwide expert in network architecture, who details the plans of this new cabal. Even if these companies have good intentions, electronic chips can be hacked and backdoor programs can be installed that would completely undermine the original intent of their plan.

Cancel culture is everywhere, even on college campuses, especially among the Jewish student community. Joining us today is Alyza Lewin (brandeiscenter.com), President of the Louis D. Brandeis Center, who starts things off by relating an amazing personal story of how her family escaped Nazi persecution in the 1940s when Poland became dangerous for Jews. She and John then move the conversation to anti-semitism today, specifically on U.S. campuses. She describes the persistent campaign against Max Price, a Jewish student at Tufts University, that highlights not only his troubles there but reveals a deep hatred for Israel among certain staff and students. There are efforts now to push back against this.

Yesterday, we aired part 1 of John's interview with Leighton Smith (newstalkzb.co.nz), long-time radio talk show host in New Zealand and host of the Leighton Smith podcast. In today's interview conclusion, the two veteran radio broadcasters discuss why those who are woke are so sensitive regarding important topics, media narratives against the right, and New Zealand's battle with political correctness and the cancellation of charter schools there. John answers as many questions as he asks as the two interviewers live up to their inquisitive reputations.
