How many times have we heard that life as we know it will end in the next few years unless we fix the climate? Or carbon dioxide is killing us? We need rational debate not hysterics. Joining us today is climate expert Judith Curry (judithcurry.com), President of the Climate Forecast Applications Network. She posits that we need first to recognize that climate change is not an immediate threat. From there, we should get the facts straight and keep politics out of the discussion. Any solution should be discussed rationally at the local level, not a one-size fits all approach from the global level. We all know, however, why the powers that be are allowing the global climate hysteria narrative to move forward – power, money, and control.
Happy Good Friday and prelude to Easter weekend. John flies solo today, tackling a number of topics, including the corruption of science by wokeism, climate alarmism and its relation to religion, and the superiority of the Christian worldview over the secular one. He covers a variety of news stories as well, including a bakery that is owed a lot of money from a woke college and the push for equity in academics and churches fails.
Whenever you are faced with an enemy intent on destroying you and your way of life, it's important to understand their mindset in order to find the best way to defeat them.
Can we ever get a straight answer on climate change? Are there people keeping that from happening? Joining us today is Calvin Beisner (cornwallalliance.org), Founder and National Spokesman at the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation. The media's reaction to the new IPCC report is, as per usual with the media, not consistent with reality. Science, along with the funding of it, has been skewed due to political correctness but Cal gives us the truth behind the ‘97% of scientists agree' mantra as well as predictive modeling – it's not what it seems. Close to everything that goes into pushing the man-made climate change agenda is built on a house of cards that alarmists are trying to keep from toppling over.
The latest IPCC report is out and it's – surprise, surprise – chock full of doom and gloom for our climate. Joining us today is Patrick Michaels (cei.org), Senior Fellow at the Center for Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. He points out glaring inconsistencies and faulty science from the report, information given to seemingly further the alarmist narrative. Patrick points out that more and more people are getting apocalypse fatigue as yet another prediction is destined to go unrealized.
We are all doomed by 2030. No, I mean 2052. Wait a minute….2070?? Why do the goal posts on climate change's ultimate 'change-or-we-all-perish' date keep moving? Joining us today is Aaron Brown (reason.com), Statistics Instructor at NYU, who looks behind the panic to determine what's really going on. The prevailing focus seems to be on human-caused warming to the detriment of all other studies that say the opposite. This evokes a moral response and feeds the panic that it's all over in 12 years or so. John finishes out the podcast, calling on Professor Brown's statistical and financial knowledge, to ask about interest rates and inflation. Are we having 1970s déjà vu?
One key measure at the heart of our divide in this country is the definition of core values. In this week's boralogue, John looks at the egregious things proposed and enacted by those in charge, using the crisis as an excuse, and the protests rising up against them. Inside the division, it all comes down to the definition of core values: their core values, which go against constitutional freedoms, are vastly different than ours.
Is there a population control aspect related to this virus and others that came before it? Back with us is long-time friend of the program, historian and former Senior Associate at the Department of Education, Dennis Cuddy. He focuses on how elites have historically been using viruses, among other things, to further their globalist goals, and how this current virus was predicted back in 2015.
How are the climate alarmists dealing with this virus crisis? Rupert Darwell (www.whwg.com), Consulting Director at the White House Writers Group, joins us from England to discuss how the global warming narrative seems to be sputtering amidst the global pandemic. He also looks at the geopolitics and future of climate alarmism.
Finally John welcomes Allie Parker (www.darkallieadvocacy.weebly.com), wife, mother, and family advocate, who examines the scary phenomenon of medical kidnapping and the weaponization of child protective services. After experiencing it herself, Allie now provides guidance to innocent parents who have been falsely accused of child abuse.
John's quote of the week:
“Whenever utopian thinking comes in, not only does there have to be control of population and what they think and what they do, but also who gets to live and who gets to die based on some system that's set up by the elites. And by the way, they are never the first ones to go.”
On this week's extra segment, we play John's recent appearance on radio program It Seems To Me with Spokane radio legend Tom Read. They discuss how badly media has behaved during the Trump administration era and how lopsided to the left their information is. They also mention that if a radio program or station is important to listeners, they should support them.
In this week's boralogue, John tackles two very important topics. First up, there is a battle of worldviews happening in Western civilization because society has drifted away from its founding ideals. Reform, then, must occur, but the fight against entrenched swamp critters will be long and it will be tough. Second topic: this weekend marks the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, and John relates stories of several persecuted Christians to pray for.
What is the difference between impeachment inquiries in the Watergate era and those occurring now? John O'Connor (www.joclaw.com), Attorney and Owner of O'Connor and Associates, joins us to discuss the contrast between 1973 and 2019 regarding impeachment and how the current media are purposefully lying to further a narrative. He also covers how intelligence agencies and Hillary Clinton's campaign spied on candidate Trump in 2016.
There's a knock at the Church's door and it's socialism that is busting in. Steven Grant (www.godsdestiny.com), Senior Pastor of Destiny Christian Center in Colorado, examines the invading secular worldview that is slowly but definitely usurping the Gospel in the Church, and asserts that church leaders need to be prepared to stand in the faith before it's too late.
A western Canadian professor was recently fired for going against the climate change narrative and claiming – through documented research – that polar bears are thriving. Dr. Bonner Cohen (www.cfact.org), Senior Policy Analyst with the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), joins us to show how climate alarmists are stifling the speech of those who don't tow the green line.
John's quote of the week:
"In reform, we have two problems: getting back to our foundations, and fighting off those swamp critters that not only don't want to see us go back to our foundations, but also want to see the whole thing destroyed. We have to keep bearing witness to the truth because truth is our ally in this entire worldview battle."
In this week's Extras segment, Producer Steve takes over and plays an excerpt from an early October episode of his podcast, War on Stupid. Steve enumerates an exhaustive and entertaining laundry list of controversies against President Trump from Inauguration Day to the Ukraine phone call. Steve covers why this keeps happening and why, after all the so-called wrongdoings, impeachment is happening now.
