Marxism has fully infiltrated the American education system. Is there anything that can be done to stop it? David Schmus (ceai.org), Executive Director of Christian Educators Association International, joins us today. He lists the many leftist programs in school systems such as the transgender agenda and critical race theory. But he says there are many ways to push back. He describes his organization's initiative to bring God into the schools through prayer and a non-offended heart. There is an alternative to teachers' unions and the way things are in schools. We can fight against Marxism in schools – especially if we have God on our side.
What exactly is behind the critical race theory ideology? John Murawski, an award-winning journalist who writes for RealClear Investigations, joins us to play devil’s advocate and point out the thinking behind both sides of the issue. The values our country has always upheld – hard work, individualism, etc. – are looked at as systems of oppression by those who espouse critical race theory. Ultimately, the problem is there’s no shared vocabulary and no shared system of values between the two sides and that’s what makes things so unstable.
The climate changers and environmentalists are always advocating for green energy but do they really understand the consequences? Here to discuss is environmental consultant Steve Milloy, founder and publisher of JunkScience.com. He looks at the realities of eliminating fossil fuels and going with green energy. We have to be smart about how we approach this and think of the consequences before moving forward. Sound environmentalism has to be based on sound science and sound economics.
Finally this week, we welcome Brian Kennedy (presentdangerchina.org), Chairman of the Committee on the Present Danger: China with the Center for Security Policy. He examines how China wants to remake the world economic order and they want to be on top of it. They are also beefing up their military and technology sectors. The most successful defense against China is for America to be united in its recognition of China as a threat.
Critical race theory and white privilege ideologies have invaded our schools and our workplaces. How do we push back against them? It helps to understand their point of view. John Murawski (realclearinvestigations.com), an award-winning journalist who writes for RealClear Investigations, joins us today to play devil's advocate and point out the thinking behind both sides of the issue.
He shows that the values our country has always upheld – hard work, individualism, etc. – are looked at as systems of oppression by those who espouse critical race theory. Ultimately, the problem is there's no shared vocabulary and no shared system of values between the two sides and that's what makes things so unstable. When the marketplace of ideas breaks down and we aren't allowed to disagree using our words, that's usually when things escalate to actual violence. How do we bridge the gap? And can we?
We have seen anti-Semitic attitudes, groups, and ideologies throughout the world, but what goes into the thinking behind it? Dr. Charles Jacobs (peaceandtolerance.org), President of Americans for Peace and Tolerance, joins us to examine why people oppose Israel so virulently but are OK with other countries' atrocities. He also looks at why Jews in the West vote for anti-Semitic politicians, and why the UN and many Western governments seem to have it out for the state of Israel.
Next, we've heard a lot about court packing in the past few weeks since Amy Cony Barrett's nomination and now acceptance to the Supreme Court bench. Mike Berry (firstliberty.org), General Counsel at First Liberty Institute is here to explain what court packing is, why democrats are so up in arms about this right now, and how activist judges torture legal language. It's constitutional warfare – who will come out on top?
John and Producer Steve then sit down to discuss how some far left policies are beginning to or could soon spiral out of control. They look at the far left's attempt to fundamentally transform the country through court packing and eliminating the Electoral College, one-party rule in some states that have literally led to disaster, and woke corporations' critical race theory sessions.
John finishes up the show this week with a sobering and sometimes graphic update on religious persecution, in the countries of China, Pakistan, Egypt, Russia, Nigeria, and Kenya.
As you listen to the craziness in the news lately, you have to realize that we have a worldview battle on our hands. On today's podcast, John and Producer Steve comment on some far left policies that represent one side of that battle. Those policies have begun to or could soon spiral out of control. John and Steve discuss the far left's attempt to fundamentally transform the country through court packing and eliminating the Electoral College, one-party rule in some states that have literally led to disaster, and woke corporations' critical race theory sessions.
President Trump has recently put a stop to the teaching of critical race theory in federal agencies, but what exactly is the theory? Jeffrey K. Mann (www.youtube.com/user/JKMannsr), Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Susquehanna University in Pennsylvania, joins us to define the concept and show the differences between what race used to mean and what it means now. It turns out that power plays a role in the current definition.
Dr. Mann goes on to explain that when there's a desire by some to do something about racism but they admit that it's baked into the culture, the only logical result is to burn down the country and start over. Plus, cancel culture is becoming a problem, and not just against conservatives – those leveling the accusations are falling victim as well.
