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.
After 16 years in power, Angela Merkel will step down as Chancellor of Germany. The country's Social Democrats edged out her party in elections this week. What does that mean for Europe and the world going forward? We welcome back Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson to the program to give us an update on geopolitics. He looks at many issues, including Europe's impending energy crisis caused by the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline deal, China's threat of global dominance, and some dangerous Russian military exercises.

John often says that when danger reared its ugly head, the pastors turned and bravely fled. That could be used to describe today's church. But has it always been that way in America?

He reminds us about the pastors from the late 18th century who bravely led their flock in battle to birth our Republic. Fast forward to today and many pastors turn and flee from conflict. He offers solutions to turn the tide.
Finally, we head north to Canuck country with fan favorite Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), writer at FrontPage Magazine and Jihad Watch. She discusses a situation where a Jewish judge has been barred from presiding over cases involving Muslims. It points to a larger problem within the Canadian government and media where talking points and so-called facts are actually flipped upside down. We've gotten to the point where lies are being marketed as truth.
Recently, a Canadian tax court judge, who is Jewish, was barred from presiding over cases involving Muslims. Of course, he was labeled an Islamophobe, ignoring most of the facts surrounding the case. Back with us today is Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), writer at FrontPage Magazine and Jihad Watch. She gives a synopsis of the situation and connects what is happening with the judge to a larger narrative within the Canadian government. And surrounding it all is a media and political machine where talking points and so-called facts are actually flipped upside down. A blizzard of lies is being marketed as the truth.
