Language is essential in every culture but the misuse of language has become legion in the media and has at times crossed over to being dangerous. Joining us today is Anne-Christine Hoff (jarvis.edu), Lead Professor of English, Speech, and Spanish at Jarvis Christian College. She looks at how ridiculous language has become and how its misuse deceives people and furthers agendas. Was there an insurrection? No, the ‘insurrectionists' had no weapons. Is it genocide to question a narrative? No, it's just a difference of opinion. It turns out that if you're going to fundamentally transform society, you need to manipulate language to fit your agenda and absolutely allow no criticism in the process.

You are going to confront two things during your life: reality and God.  Those confrontations are assured, whether we like it or not, so with that in mind, it's important to know what life is all about.  John flies solo today, taking a look at those two confrontations amid the avalanche of lies and blizzard of ignorance we see in the West today.  Caught up in the blizzard and the avalanche are many young people who are being taught to embrace a narrative or a truth claim, regardless of whether it's actually true or not.  John illustrates how Marxist thought is completely antithetical to Christmas: one has to be true while the other has to be false.  John reads from the Gospel of John showing how Christmas definitely wins that battle.

It is said that those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it. But the lesson that history teaches is that most people don't know the lessons of history. Here this week to help us understand the mindset of progressives – a group that never seems to learn from history – is Pedro Blas Gonzalez (barry.edu), Professor of Philosophy at Barry University. He looks at why people and leaders in totalitarian societies have behaved the way they have throughout history. Understanding their motivation helps to explain the illogic and contradictions constantly bandied about by the Left today. And it helps clarify for us what the truth really is.

One lesson we can learn from history is from the people and movements surrounding the fall of Communism in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Spotlighting both Pope John Paul II and the Solidarity movement in Poland is Stephanie Slade (reaosn.com), Managing Editor at Reason Magazine. She examines how the people in Poland never gave up on freedom, even when the powers that be tried to take it from them. Eventually, they had had enough, decided they were no longer going to live that way, and together with Pope John Paul II and others, planted the seeds of destruction for Communism. It's a great history lesson for today.

John finishes up the show this week highlighting inconsistencies in history. When flip flopping narratives replace truth, the solid foundation you built your belief or your society on begins to be overshadowed by other, less important things. That's when historical truth is forgotten and mistakes that shouldn't be made are made all over again.

John was a guest recently on the program Stand Up for the Truth with David Fiorazo on Q90FM out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. We'll play that interview for you today. John covers a number of topics for your listening pleasure, including the bias of the news media, the different levels of the ideological left, and the dangers of a one-party system. He also looks at online censorship, blue state to red state migration, and how climate change narratives overshadowed the power problem in Texas last winter. It's a mélange of topics and vintage John Loeffler on today's podcast.

It hurts the brain sometimes to try and make sense of the constant contradictions of the progressive ideology. Joining us today to sort through a lot of it is Pedro Blas Gonzalez (barry.edu), Professor of Philosophy at Barry University near Miami, Florida. He dives into the progressive mindset and looks at the history of why people and leaders in totalitarian societies behave the way they do. It helps to explain the illogicity behind the contradictions we hear from the far left in today's society. It all boils down to power and the willingness to do anything and everything to get it and to keep it.

How has Karl Marx influenced the modern day far leftist progressive? To answer that, we welcome back investigative journalist and former economist with the White House Office of Management and Budget, James Simpson (crisisnow.net). The communism of Karl Marx infiltrated America and the West largely through the Frankfurt School, attempting to divide and subvert our culture. What we're seeing in 'white privilege' and critical race theory today are just the modern mechanisms to accomplish their plan. People are beginning to see what's happening but it seems like an uphill battle. Mr. Simpson shares some ideas on how to fight against it.

John finishes up today's podcast with a look at the Book of Revelation, the Four Horsemen, and today's globalist push. Are we indeed in the End Times? If so, what is our role as Christians?

The Familiar Road to Socialism

"History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme:" a quote attributed to author Mark Twain. We see today the seedlings of socialism beginning to burst through here in the U.S. and it looks awfully familiar. First up this week is Andrei Znamenski (notesonliberty.com), Professor of History at the University of Memphis. He grew up in the Soviet Union before coming here in 1991 and is an expert in the lead-up to the Bolshevik movement of 1917. He describes the beginning of communism in Russia where they would shut down intellectual debate, control the media, and institute a repressive cancel culture. Where have we heard that before?

The Christian Church has been affected by this change, with some leaders and pastors compromising the Church's doctrines to cater to the secularized culture. Back with us this week after a long hiatus is Ken Ham (answersingenesis.org), CEO and Founder of Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum, and the world-renowned Ark Encounter. He looks to help prepare Christians to take a bold stand, defend God's Word, and take on the worldly culture. The Church should cease compromising because in the troubled times ahead, with the enemies already inside the gates, the solid foundation of Truth will be a much needed weapon.

Finally this week, we take a look at censorship and the violation of the free speech rights of millions of Americans. Wrapping up the show is May Davis (iwf.org), Visiting Fellow at the Independent Women's Forum. She discusses President Trump's class action lawsuit against social media companies, the need to apply fair rules to everyone equally, and how the repercussions of Big Tech's censorship could help change the culture and founding principles of the country.

Jake Klyczek: School World Order

Throughout the past several decades, there has been a shift from teaching children how to think to teaching children what to think, and not really teaching a whole lot in that last category.  Joining us today for an educational history lesson is teacher and author Jake Klyczek (schoolworldorder.info).  He looks not only at the different Marxist attempts to indoctrinate children in the past half century, but also at the western society level, with erosion of sovereignty and the latest technological push to a social credit system.  The time has come in every arena, especially churches, for people to wake up and resist this Marxist takeover.

Every time socialism has been tried, it has failed and it has failed partly because government tried planning every aspect of everyone's life: an endeavor doomed to crash and burn every time.  Joining us today is Andrei Znamenski (notesonliberty.com), Professor of History at the University of Memphis.  He moved here after his childhood in Russia and has studied the lead-up to the Bolshevik movement.  He describes the beginning of communism in Russia and how the powers that be shut down intellectual debate, controlled the media, and instituted a repressive cancel culture.  I think it's obvious the U.S. is on a very similar path today.  Consider us warned.

Rules for thee but not for me. That's the mantra underlying America's new woke belief system. Joining us today is freelance writer and author Larry Eubank (larryeubank.com) to discuss his new article Wokeism: The New American Orthodoxy. He looks at how the laws and rules when applied to radical leftists are ignored, because for them, the woke orthodoxy trumps everything – including the rule of law. But conservatives are expected to live up to those same laws. For every double standard on the surface, there's an undeclared single standard underneath. And that's the orthodoxy.
