John is taking a well-deserved day off after a long road trip, so Producer Steve takes over the microphone today – yes, John will be back! What do calling everything racist and forced mandates have in common? Steve looks at what the progressives are really saying when they claim things are racist and what elites are really telling all of us when they force mandates on us. Hint: it's not a flattering message. And because it's not flattering, they get the media outlets to gaslight us into believing it's true. We can – and must – fight against it.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked this week the Emergencies Act in an effort to defeat the trucker Freedom Convoy – a rally that has occupied parts of Ottawa for three weeks to protest Trudeau's stifling Covid mandates. John and Producer Steve discuss the implications of the Emergencies Act and compare it to Hitler and the leadup to Nazi rule in the 1930s. Anyone who opposes the government's – whether it be in Canada or the U.S. – official position will be branded a terrorist and once that happens, the government's actions against those people, no matter how egregious and anti-freedom, will be deemed justified. It's a dangerous precedent to set.
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.
Narratives can be a tricky thing and for the globalists, they use narratives to convince the public that their gradual stranglehold on control is acceptable. Climate change had been their vehicle for some time but it has been supplanted by Covid in the last two years. Are we seeing a transition back to climate change now that Covid is beginning to fade?
First up this week, Dennis Cuddy joins John and Producer Steve to look at how the various narratives about Covid are falling apart. They discuss all the controversial Covid issues, including the lab-based origins of the virus, gain of function research, adverse vaccine reactions, and even DARPA's involvement. Now that the truth is coming out, thanks to Dr. Cuddy and others, the globalists are scrambling to find another narrative to try and maintain control.
It turns out that transitioning away from the Covid narrative was easy for the globalists – all they had to do was turn to an old favorite, climate change. Joining us is Wesley Smith (humanexceptionalism.center), Director of the Discovery Institute's Center on Human Exceptionalism. We are now being told that climate change should be seen as a health emergency, which would allow for the retention of tyrannical covid policies.
Covid will end, but climate change can be with us for as long as is needed. Our rights would be suspended, and the globalists would be able to achieve what they tried to with Covid. To fight back, we need to expose the truth, which like sunlight, is the best disinfectant.
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.
Some media outlets are beginning to comment on the dysfunction and failures of the Biden administration. How will they extract themselves from the narratives they're anchored to, all the while not irking the far left progressives? Joining us today is Bruce Thornton (fresnostate.edu), Professor Emeritus of Classics and Humanities at Cal State Fresno. He examines why the media seems to be slowly turning on the Biden administration – and it has nothing to do with principles. They are slaves to ideology and a lot of it stems from the indoctrination in our education system, something Professor Thornton has had a front row seat to for years.
Are we seeing a narrative transition from 'covid, covid, covid' back to climate change? Back with us today is Wesley Smith (humanexceptionalism.center), Director of the Discovery Institute's Center on Human Exceptionalism. Prestigious scientific journals are now claiming that climate change should be seen as a health emergency, which would allow for the retention of covid tyranny. The covid emergency will end one way or the other, but the climate emergency will last for decades if not centuries. This would permit an indefinite suspension of our rights that would result in a technocracy without end.
How can we get to the truth about Covid and the vaccines when statistics are being thrown around – some supporting one narrative and others supporting the opposite? Joining us today is Dr. Jane Orient (aapsonline.org), Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. She points out that the definition of words or phrases, like "vaccinated," is important because statistics will mean nothing if the definition of the underlying issues aren't set in stone. She covers hospital Covid issues, drugs that are verboten but actually work, and the controversy surrounding deaths among the vaccinated.
Since the pandemic began, some leaders have instituted near tyrannical policies, resulting in lack of freedoms, a downturn in the economy, and a divided public on Covid. So how could there be a silver lining to all of this? Joining us today is Keri Ingraham (discovery.org), Director of the Discovery Institute's American Center for Transforming Education. She shows that because of the politicians' and the public education system's overbearing policies, parents are waking up to what their children are being taught. And they're doing something about it – namely pulling their kids out of public school and away from the indoctrination. At least in that, the glass is half full.
