Do masks actually work? What about the vaccine? Joining us today is Dr. Jane Orient (aapsonline.org), Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. She tackles these questions and more, looking at how politicized the pandemic and related issues have become, always at the expense of the truth. Politicization has led to medical tyranny, which in turn seems to be part of a grander globalist plan. They are using the current pandemic to force totalitarian policies on us in what can only be described as a trial run for when they make their final push.
Elite academic institutions have developed a stifling surveillance system built around Covid protocols, and some students seem to be OK with it. New Jersey-based independent journalist Michael Tracey (mtracey.substack.com) joins us today. He looks at how administrators not only encourage a permanent state of emergency, but also a snitch culture, pitting student against student. The policies infringe on students' freedoms and lack any off-ramp where the problem is eventually solved. With so much time and money tied up in Covid spending and an unhealthy addiction to power and control by administrators, the current draconian way of doing things at these elite institutions is not going away any time soon.
A public school history teacher in Oklahoma was removed from his job recently for not wearing a mask. That teacher, James Taylor, who is also Pastor of Christ's Church in Norman, Oklahoma, joins us today. He relates his reason for not wearing a mask and it isn't the typical mask wearing reason. He plans to fight the ruling. He looks at the hypocrisy of those pushing masks who either don't wear them or wear them incorrectly. Pastor Taylor goes on to discuss how CRT is still being taught in schools, though under a different name, the real plans of the educrats, and the state of America's education system today.
In Mark 11, Jesus asked the Pharisees to decide if the baptism of John was from heaven or from men. Instead of making a decision, they sat on the fence and claimed ignorance. Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca), Founder of Street Church Ministries in Alberta, Canada, spoke in our area recently and John caught up with him for an interview. Artur shows what the battle ahead will look like for Western civilization and what we must do to win. We must get off the fence and stand up to tyranny. We know what tyranny looks like from history so we should be able to recognize it now. Making that decision is scary, but with God on our side and an iron resolve, we can successfully make a stand and choose what side of the fence we want to be on.
If what is happening doesn't make sense, there must be another agenda afoot. And today, there are many things that don't make sense. Back with us this week is John Guandolo (understandingthethreat.com), Founder of Understanding the Threat. He maintains that many of these illogical events – like the disastrous pullout from Afghanistan – are intentional. Change agents come to town trying to distract you from the truth of what's happening but people are beginning to see through the charade and wake up. He shows us what we can do.
Finally this week we welcome to the show Joseph Puder (frontpagemag.com), columnist at FrontPage Magazine. He examines America's reputation in the world after the pullout from Afghanistan. Our allies around the world don't trust us and our enemies are more emboldened. Does that mean attacks on U.S. soil are imminent?
Recently, Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca), Founder of Street Church Ministries in Alberta, Canada, traveled to John's church to give a speech and John caught up with him for an impromptu interview. Artur and John discuss the battle ahead for Western civilization and how we need God in this battle if we are going to win. The enemy is clearly defined; they are the totalitarians and the ones who help them. One of the key reasons people have fallen to the enemy in the past, has been the failure to stand up en masse to the tyranny. We must learn from this lesson. And if we are going to be successful in standing up, we'd better get started because the enemy has already begun to fight.
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?
Does the executive and/or judicial branch have the right to just ignore the Constitution? The answer of course is no, but sometimes that doesn't seem to stop them. Retired engineer John Green is back with us today to discuss the latest rulings and declarations surrounding the eviction moratorium. The Supreme Court admitted it wasn't constitutional to extend the moratorium but allowed it to be extended anyway. The Biden administration picked up the ball and extended it even more – admitting also that it was probably unconstitutional. There are many consequences and precedents that will result from this. How fast are the Founding Fathers spinning in their graves?
The reason for much of the strife we see today, including what happened in Afghanistan as well as the failure of the woke ideology in the U.S., is the stark difference in right vs left worldviews. First up this week is Jason Ross (liberty.edu), Interim Dean of the Helms School of Government at Liberty University. He looks at one aspect of the leftist worldview – America is evil because of our past with slavery. What sets America apart, though, is that we got rid of slavery. Our founding documents and Judeo-Christian foundation paved the way for this. So the leftist narrative that we are evil because of our past with slavery ignores our history.
As Afghanistan spirals out of control, another country is spiraling down in a different way. Australia has gone into lockdown again, causing some to wonder if the country is turning back into a penal colony. Joining us from Down Under is Matthew Wong (discernable.io), Founder of Discernable media. He describes some of the draconian measures authorities are taking in his country. The government keeps moving the goalposts to hold on to power. Matt and John debate the best way to make people realize that the totalitarians are here.
Finally this week we dive into the world of cyber attacks and espionage. Weifeng Zhong (policychangeindex.org), Senior Research Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University is with us. He discusses what little our government is doing to protect citizens and its own assets from cyber attacks. The powers that be, however, are not seriously looking at the problem because the politically correct thing to do is to not criticize the number one cyber attacker in the world – China.
John finishes up the program with some thoughts on what happened in Afghanistan.
As Afghanistan spirals out of control, another country is spiraling down in a different way. Australia has gone into lockdown again, causing some to wonder if the country is turning back into a penal colony. Joining us from Down Under is Matthew Wong (discernable.io), Founder of Discernable media. He describes some of the draconian measures authorities are taking in his country. The government keeps moving the goalposts to hold on to power, causing the Overton Window to shift at a rapid rate. Matt and John debate the best way to wake people up and make them realize that the totalitarians aren't on their way – they're here.
Eliminating cash and transitioning to an all-digital currency may make some people nervous, especially if the digital currency is backed by the government. Leading off the show this week is silver expert David Morgan (themorganreport.com), author of the Morgan Report. He and John look at the possibility that the U.S. government could shift to digital currency, giving them control over all transactions. Bitcoin, the current leader in digital money, will either face off against the establishment or be co-opted by it. David also predicts what could happen with inflation and our massive debt.
We then move in-house with a conversation between John and Producer Steve. They examine the media's lack of journalism in parroting the administration's wavering virus messaging as well as using conflicting scientific papers in the virus and vaccine battle. They also discuss the tendency for the truth to win out in the end, how mandates violate freedom, and even some unprofessional undercover activity on the part of federal law enforcement.
Finally, we welcome to the show Mike Berry (firstliberty.org), General Counsel for First Liberty Institute and member of the U.S. Marine Corps. It is getting harder for members of the armed forces to honor the military oath. It says you are to support and defend the Constitution, but it also says you are to obey the orders of the President and superior officers. With woke leadership demonizing conservative military members for their beliefs, eventually our enemies will defeat us without firing a shot.
