For a couple of weeks, we had no idea what had become of our Ukraine-based expert Reuben Johnson. Had he escaped Kiev? Was he injured or dead? Thankfully, we received a call from him letting us know what had happened. He is with us today to share his incredible tale – one that involves his car being destroyed by machine gun fire! He also discusses conversations he has had and reports he's received regarding the mindset of both Russian and Ukrainian soldiers.
What does it mean to be an American? What is the DNA of the United States? Joining us today to answer these questions and more is author and cryptography expert Paul Rosenberg (freemansperspective.com). He points out that America has lost its metanarrative. We used to build things, care about things – in essence, we had a unified, proud metanarrative. But then something changed and now our children are taught to hate their own country, to tear things down rather than build them up. Historically, people have come here to invent things, to create lives for themselves, and to realize their potential. That whole culture of belief has slowly eroded into what we're seeing today. The question is: can we get it back?
We have media manipulating narratives, government officials implementing policies based not on science but on political motives, and we have truth being ignored across the board. John flies solo today and ties all of these things together, looking at how we arrived at this moment in time. Academia is pushing the oppressor versus oppressed narrative and it shows in virtually every story media puts out. John covers several reports that showcase how the truth gets twisted and narrative is king.
Yesterday we started a conversation with Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson about the geopolitical outlook between China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the U.S. Today we continue that discussion, looking at the state of America's biased media and comparisons to Russian TV and newspapers. John and Reuben also discuss what will become of the Republican party following President Trump's exit from the White House and they take a deep dive into the worldview of the Left and how that has influenced Western society.
Like most things that don't succeed, Marxism has had to shift its focus over the years. Author and speaker Steve Turley (www.turleytalks.com) is with us today to discuss how Marxism has shifted their focus from an economic one to a cultural one. In order to take over the culture, there had to be a unity among disparate “oppressed” groups against a common enemy or “oppressor” group which was the white race. Even when it has been proven that racism today is lower than it's ever been in our country, the focus was then shifted to systemic racism.
Dr. Turley points out how political correctness has become so egregious that a blow-back has occurred, so much so that kids in generation Z are way more conservative than their parents. To combat this, Marxists have fallen back on what's always worked for them – if you violate political correctness, they justify violence against you.
We're a hundred years out from the Roaring 20s of the last century. How different will this decade be from that one? In this week's boralogue, John looks at how our freedoms are eroding and how a technocracy and public-private partnership will completely restructure the government as we know it without the consent of the governed. It's time for reform if we want to preserve the freedoms in the Constitution. Little people like us are just the ones to do that.
The basis for the 1619 Project is that the history of the United States is rooted in slavery and racism at every turn. Dr. Jason Hill (www.jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago, joins us to examine how the U.S. overcame slavery and helped pull many people out of poverty through capitalism. But instead of being taught this in classrooms, students learn how to hate what it means to be an American.
John gives a brief analysis on the history of the Peace Process in the Middle East between Israel and the Palestinians, questioning who Israel's peace partner would be since past and present candidates have all walked away from the negotiating table.
Richard Shinder (www.theatine.com), Founder and Managing Partner of Theatine Partners, joins us to discuss the latest with globalism during the pandemic and how countries tend to reject it and turn inward during a crisis.
Finally, we welcome Nick Adams (www.nickadamsusa.com), Founder of the Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness. He promotes his new book, Trump and Churchill, comparing and contrasting the two men, looking at their actions, the media's perception of them, and their place in the annals of history.
