covid shutdowns

Every few months or so, we break out the crystal ball with esteemed futurist James Kunstler (kunstler.com), who is back with us today, to see where we're headed. James looks at the future of economics and culture, and how if we are expecting to live in an orderly society in the next several decades, we are mistaken. He examines the impending economic reset, debt forgiveness, and how the economic elites see the future versus how he sees it. He explores the future of cities and suburbs, realistically looking at today's realities to predict tomorrow's likelihoods. No one knows the future, but if he's proven correct, we need to be prepared for the tough times ahead.

Jam packed show this week. Whether we are entering the End Times or the Great Reset – or both – Christians need to be ready. First up this week is Jeff Kinley (jeffkinley.com), Founder of Main Things Ministries. He discusses the gradual reawakening of America's churches following months of lockdowns. Religious freedom has been threatened but some Christians are starting to fight back. Returning to meeting together and studying the Word will ground us in the Truth.

Liberation theology, social justice, and critical race theory have merged out of Marxism and have landed in Western schools. Next up this week is Steve Stotsky (camera.org), Senior Research Analyst at CAMERA. In order to combat moral-based Judeo-Christian education found throughout Western schools, educrat Marxists have pushed forward a distorted and narrative-driven curriculum. To push back, parents need to be more proactive, be more aware of what their children are learning, and not be afraid to make themselves heard.

The Founding Fathers created the Constitution with limited federal powers in mind. Eventually though, states' rights were usurped by a bigger, expanding government. Our last guest this week is Robert Curry (claremont.org), Member of the Board at the Claremont Institute. He takes a look at the plan to wrest control away from the states and into the federal government. This eventually eroded national sovereignty. That plan is almost complete … unless Americans learn the truth and put a stop to it.

John finishes up this week with a brief analysis of how media craft narratives. It's our job to recognize what they're doing and stand firm on the solid rock foundation of the truth.

Jeff Kinley: Christians’ Finest Hour

Broadcast Running Time: 19:18

Whether we are entering the Great Reset or the End Times – or both – Christians need to be ready. Joining us today is Jeff Kinley (jeffkinley.com), Founder of Main Things Ministries, who discusses the gradual reawakening of America's churches following months of lockdowns and virus-related issues. Religious freedom has been threatened but some Christians are starting to push back. If we are to be salt and light to the world, we first need to return to meeting together and reading the Word. And discernment is key; it focuses us on what is important.

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?

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.

Following up on yesterday's round table discussion on overcoming angst, John and Carol collaborate today to look at the new normal (or ongoing paradigm shift) in the world of economics. They look at the global economic picture, the actions of central banks around the world, and how the virus is affecting businesses both big and small. They also play a clip from this week's McAlvany Weekly Commentary on how the markets are realigning to the new normal.
