Where power and money goes, trouble grows. And nowhere is there more power, money, and trouble than the U.S. government. Back with us today is Matt Welch (reason.com), Editor-at-Large at Reason Magazine. Even though it has never worked, governments still try to tax their way into prosperity. The IRS is now going after back accounts of expats living abroad to counteract what is known as off-shoring one's money. But the offshoring exists because of the IRS's onerous tax practices. Part of this attempted money grab is snooping on financial records – which would set a dangerous precedent. Governments could snoop into your bank account and wield an immense amount of power and influence over anyone at any time.

Dr. Russ White: Hacking Blockchain

Broadcast Running Time: 21:29

Blockchain had once been thought of as unhackable, but recent attempts to manipulate the system have caused all sorts of trouble for industries, such as cryptocurrencies, that use blockchain. Back with us today is infrastructure architect Dr. Russ White (rule11.tech), who, as always, has a fun and spirited conversation with John. Today, he explains what blockchain is, how it has become vulnerable, and the possible implications of foul play. He also gives an update on the disturbing union of Big Tech and Big Government.

Accusations of voter fraud and corrupted voting machines are still lingering around the last election, but there was another, much larger factor, that flew under the radar and left no paper trail. First up this week is Dr. Robert Epstein (aibrt.org), Senior Research Psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology. He shows how Big Tech companies, Google in particular, potentially shifted millions of votes in the 2020 election thanks to biased search results. He describes his research into ephemeral experiences online and weighs the good and bad ideas on how to reform our election process.

What do the Titanic and the modern day Church have in common? Author and former new ager Warren B. Smith (warrenbsmith.com) is back with us after a long hiatus to discuss his new book, The Titanic and Today's Church: A Tale of Two Shipwrecks. He covers a variety of interesting topics like automatic writing, the God within, and other New Age beliefs that are seeping into the Christian church today. Today's church has been warned countless times about the infiltration of New Age thinking. Will it face a similar result as the unsinkable ship?

John finishes up the program this week by looking back at the Texas cold snap in February, reviewing how the media spun their narratives and how the concept of green energy, worthwhile as it is, is not yet ready for prime time.

We've heard about voter fraud in the last election and possibly corrupted voting machines, but there was another, much larger factor, that flew under the radar and left no paper trail. Joining us today is Dr. Robert Epstein (aibrt.org), Senior Research Psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology. He looks at Big Tech companies, Google in particular, and the millions of votes that were potentially shifted thanks to biased search results. He describes his meticulous research showing bias and his efforts at producing a search result paper trail, not to mention whistleblower emails that prove Google spearheaded influence efforts. He also weighs the good and bad ideas on how to solve this problem.

Under the Obama administration, we witnessed foreign policy that mostly did not work. Under President Trump, we saw a new and innovative way to approach foreign policy. But now we're back to the policies that have proven to be ineffective. First up this week is Gregg Roman (meforum.org), Director at the Middle East Forum, who looks at the Biden philosophy of hegemonic equilibrium – putting allies and foes on equal footing in a region – and how it has forced our allies to rely less on the U.S. He also points out how we are focusing on unimportant things while our geopolitical enemies are gaining strength.

Next, we have an important announcement for non-public schools. Brian Kelsey (libertyjusticecenter.org), Senior Attorney with the Liberty Justice Center, is with us to alert all private schools that there is money available for Covid relief – if you know where to look and ask for it. If you don't, it reverts back to the public schools.

One of the most important issues in this country is election reform. It is badly needed or dysfunction and fraud will continue to run rampant in our elections. We welcome to the program Michael O'Neill (landmarklegal.org), Assistant General Counsel for Landmark Legal Foundation. He reviews a case from Arizona involving people voting in precincts they don't live in as well as ballot harvesting, both backed by the DNC. The case is now at the Supreme Court and if this isn't overturned, it could set a dangerous precedent moving forward.

Finally this week, we look at the debate over whether online platforms should be considered publishers or editors. Political writer and author Steven Hill (steven-hill.com) joins us to explain both sides of the issue, the effects of the Facebook law in Germany and Section 230 here, and a host of other topics like algorithms, psychographic profiles, manipulated searches, and surveillance capitalism.

We have a double feature on today's podcast. First up is a brief interview with Brian Kelsey (libertyjusticecenter.org), Senior Attorney with the Liberty Justice Center. He alerts all private schools that there is money available for Covid relief – if you know where to look and ask for it. If you don't, it reverts back to the public schools.

We then transition to the debate over whether online platforms should be considered publishers or editors. Political writer and author Steven Hill (steven-hill.com) joins us to explain both sides of the issue and how policing what Big Tech companies are doing is far more complicated than it sounds. He looks at the differences between the internet in America versus the internet in Europe and the effects of the Facebook law in Germany and Section 230 here. He also discusses algorithms, psychographic profiles, manipulated searches, and surveillance capitalism. Is anyone working to solve these problems?

Chewing Out Our Own Guts

When you get two radio veterans from opposite ends of the world with nearly a century of experience between them together, you get a fascinating conversation. John welcomes New Zealand radio legend Leighton Smith (www.newstalkzb.co.nz) to the show this week for an extended discussion on the state of the world today. They cover many topics, including Marxism's infiltration of the West, the real definition of truth, and the media's blatant narratives against the Right, as well as New Zealanders' battles with politically correct policies.

The leftists have permeated our institutions and our governments and many in Western countries have allowed it to happen. As John says, we have been very busy chewing out our guts and then assuming freedom will continue to stand. But when you use the very benefits of the society you're trying to destroy, the society itself will not stand.

In order to fight misinformation and conspiracy theories, Microsoft has teamed with other companies to trace online content back to its original author in what some people are calling a huge setback in data privacy. Back with us is Russ White (www.rule11.tech), nationwide expert in network architecture, who details the plans of this new cabal. Even if these companies have good intentions, electronic chips can be hacked and backdoor programs can be installed that would completely undermine the original intent of their plan.

In the name of combating misinformation and conspiracy theories, Microsoft has teamed with several other companies to trace content online back to its original author in what some people are calling a huge setback in data privacy. Back with us today is Russ White (rule11.tech), nationwide expert in network architecture, who details the plan of this new cabal, called the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity. He shows that even in the unlikely event that these companies have good intentions, electronic chips can be hacked and unseen backdoor programs can be installed that would completely undermine the original intent of the plan.

Is it really possible that the U.S. could see a social credit score like they have in China? Caught up in that question is the recent squabble between tech companies over data privacy. Back with us today to go over this topic is Russ White (rule11.tech), nationwide expert in network infrastructure architecture. Russ and John discuss who really has ownership of your personal data, the impacts of net neutrality, and the rampant partisan hypocrisy of the Big Tech companies. The ultimate question is: who controls what and what will our rights be? They also look at how from a technological perspective, most everything is in place for Biblical prophecies to come true. As John has said, if this isn't the End Times, then it's one heck of a dress rehearsal.
