CRT

Before we get to debunking reports and theories rooted more in narratives than truth, we begin the show this week with a very real update on the rate hike announced Wednesday by the Federal Reserve. John explains why we're seeing huge inflation numbers and why the Fed did what they did.

The first report we need to look at is the recently released study on supposed right-wing violence from the Anti-Defamation League. We welcome to the program Mike Hill (jbs.org), retired U.S. Air Force Captain and former member of the Florida House of Representatives. He shows how data in politically charged reports like this are often skewed and/or taken out of context. It is done to push forth a narrative – in this case the push for more gun control. Mr. Hill gives the real reason for the shootings we've seen lately, and it has nothing to do with the solutions proposed by “need to do something” politicians.

Another topic that needs serious discussion is the level of education being offered to minority children. Apparently now, teaching minorities to understand correct grammar is considered racist! Joining us to debunk that sentiment is Kay Hymowitz (city-journal.org), Editor at the City Journal and Fellow at the Manhattan Institute. She and John discuss how all of the freedoms, laws, and advancements that we have in the West are all possible because of a proper education. Elites are denying everyone – of all racial groups – a positive step forward by making assertions like this.

Finally this week, John looks at the long-predicted day of reckoning caused by severe government mismanagement. It's not on the horizon folks, it's here. There is a perfect storm of energy policy inflation and monetary inflation coupled with several concerning geopolitical events. The current administration is doing nothing to help and in many cases is pushing narratives that make things worse. People are starting to realize that things are very wrong. The battle we're in right now is between those who want to uphold the Constitution and those who want to destroy it.

How did we ever get to the point where teaching children to read and write is looked at as a racist act? Joining us today to answer that is Kay Hymowitz (city-journal.org), Editor at the City Journal and Fellow at the Manhattan Institute. To say that minority children shouldn't have to learn correct grammar because that's racist is, by itself, a racist statement. The freedoms, the laws, and the advancements of Western culture have all been possible due to a proper education. With this racist grammar assertion, elites are negating and denying everything that gave everybody – from every racial group – a positive step forward. That's the insanity of where we are.

We've discussed before the nefarious nature of ESG scores, which are social credit scores for businesses. Today we look at how these socialist standards would affect the oil industry. First up this week is author and scholar John Horvat (returntoorder.org). He examines the recent rule proposed by the Securities and Exchange Commission that would force public companies to disclose climate risks involved in their operation. This rule, motivated by ideology, not economics, gives the impression that America is weak and for the oil industry, will result in declined oil production at a time when energy needs are on the rise.

We then transition to the education arena, showing how dysfunctional our schools have become, even in conservative areas. John first chats with Adam Guillette (aim.org), President of Accuracy in Media. He looks at how CRT is still being taught in schools – even in red states and even after parents succeeded in removing it from curricula. Teachers have admitted that no matter what happens, they'll just close the classroom door and teach what they want.

How did our education system get to the point where teachers choose to teach CRT or discuss sexual topics with children? We welcome two guests: Richard Hawkins (christedu.org), retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force and Dr. Max Lyons (face.net), Director of Teaching Services at the Foundation for American Christian Education. They reveal how teachers' colleges are preparing educators to indoctrinate students with socialist lesson plans. Dr. Lyons shows how his foundation has developed a biblical approach to teaching.

We wrap up the show this week with a positive message. People around the world need to hear and read the Word of God and one of those places is in South America. Joining John is David Witt (spritofmartyrdom.com), CEO of Spirit of Martyrdom International. He describes the need for God's Word in Venezuela and Colombia and what his organization is doing to provide Bibles and leadership in churches there. God has begun a revival of the Christian Church and a renewal of hearts, including those in hard-to-reach tribal areas.

Whether through law, regulation, or end running the system, Marxists are implementing their woke ideology in several arenas. Joining us today is Marc Greendorfer (zachorlegal.org), President and Founder of the Zachor Legal Institute. He discusses how this indoctrination is affecting the education arena, specifically in the University of California system. There is a proposal to mandate completion of ethnic studies classes (read: woke indoctrination) as a condition of admission to UC campuses. This especially affects Christian and Jewish students who would have to pay homage to an ideology they don't believe in just to go to college. What is supposed to be a neutral system is becoming a Marxist stranglehold.

We have three guests on today's program.  First up is Adam Guillette (aim.org), President of Accuracy in Media.  He looks at how CRT is still being taught in schools – even in red states – and when parents catch on, the educrats rebrand it and keep going with the same material.  Sadly, reforms can be sought, but teachers have admitted, regardless of what happens, they will just close the classroom door and teach what they want anyway.

We then transition to a two-guest round table with Richard Hawkins (christedu.org), retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force and Dr. Max Lyons (face.net), Director of Teaching Services at the Foundation for American Christian Education.  They discuss how teachers are being taught in colleges different techniques in instructing children to be socialists.  Dr. Lyons shows how his foundation has developed a biblical approach to teaching.

Putting the Whole Puzzle Together

John often tackles the question: how did we get to where we are today? That's an important question, but so is: where are we heading? To lead off the show this week, John combines the two questions, looking at all the puzzle pieces affecting us today. He tackles the situation with Russia and Ukraine as well as inflation, oil prices, climate change, the push to discontinue fossil fuels, and the state of U.S. currency as it relates to the world. He shows how we got to where we are today and where we could end up tomorrow.

To better understand the bigger picture, today's millennials and gen-zees need to shed the progressive ideology they're taught in schools and adopt a facts over feelings approach to thinking. Joining us today is Jason Hill (jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago. He discusses politics, education, and culture and gives us hope in the face of the discouragement we see every day. He relates his experience with students and how many of them are beginning to wake up to the fact that something is wrong and maybe the truth really is more important than feelings.

John finishes up recapping the current situation we find ourselves in, once again putting the puzzle pieces together with the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the global economy, and the always pervasive climate change narrative. We are flying into a perfect storm; a storm caused by decades of insane policies. But God is our anchor and our hope and we should always pray for His guidance in our lives.

A large percentage of college students are being taught progressive ideology and, as a result, focus more on feelings and opinions than on facts and truth. Today, John catches up with Jason Hill (jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago, who interacts with students on a daily basis. If we look at not only education, but also politics and culture, it's really easy to become discouraged and think of the future as bleak. Is there hope? Professor Hill suggests that in order to counter progressives, the right needs to advocate for their principles rather than always being on defense. And he sees hope in university classrooms: more and more students today are waking up to the fact that something is wrong and maybe, just maybe, the truth is more important than feelings.

School boards are declaring that they know best for your child. The FBI has been weaponized to go after parents who speak up as if they were terrorists. What can parents do? Back with us today is Nicole Neily (defendinged.org), Founder and President of Parents Defending Education. She and John look at how brazen school boards and teachers' unions have been and how it has galvanized parents to stand up for their rights. They discuss ways parents can fight back and protect their children from the educrat tyranny in today's schools.

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.

The first part of the military oath, to support and defend the Constitution, is fairly straightforward. But the second part – to obey the orders of the President and superior officers – is beginning to interfere with the first part. Joining us today is Mike Berry (firstliberty.org), General Counsel for First Liberty Institute and member of the U.S. Marine Corps. He draws on his experience in the military to show the woke policies being put in place, including snitch lines. Also, if military personnel hold certain beliefs, they are now being labeled as extremist and anti-civil rights – beliefs such pro-life, traditional marriage, etc. If we continue down this line, our military enemies may not have to fire a shot to defeat us.
