Democracy vs. Republic

If you put your kids in secular, atheist, Marxist seminaries (aka public schools), don't be surprised when you get secular, atheist, Marxists out. What is the best alternative? First up this week, we welcome Chaplain E. Ray Moore (exodusmandate.org), Co-Founder of Frontline Ministries. He describes what his organization is doing to get children out of public education and into private, Christian schools. He reveals his opinions on vouchers, charter schools, and running for school boards. He also urges pastors to get off the sidelines and defend the truth and biblical education.

What would America's founding fathers say about the state of not only education, but our entire country today? Joining us is author Steven Rabb (thefoundersspeech.com), who just wrote a book describing how everything the founders warned us against is now happening. There is a constant end running of the Constitution by those in the swamp who strenuously fight against reform. This has resulted in the chaos we're now seeing. How do we stop it? Return to the founders' idea of what the United States should be.

Finally this week, we dive into the future of the world's economy. Will it be full of digital currency and the problems that come with it? Joining us to chat about that is Chris Brady (chrisbrady.com), Founder and CEO of Life Platform. He looks at the future of Bitcoin, the plans of the world's central banks and the inevitable rollout of debt to create digital currencies. He also examines the dangers of going with a digital currency, especially the tracking aspect and the programmability standards.

Throughout all of history, governments have always tended toward corruption. It's human nature. It's also why our founding fathers created the government they did. Joining us today is author Steven Rabb (thefoundersspeech.com) to discuss how everything the founders warned us against is happening. He looks at the constant end running of the Constitution to prop up an ideology, the intense pushback by those in the swamp against attempts at reform, and the move away from public education into private or home schools. Our country is slipping precariously close to the edge of chaos: returning to the founders' idea of the U.S. is the best way to keep that from happening.

A new book is out about how the 1976 election signaled a sea change in American politics.  Joining us today is the author of that book, Daniel Williams (westga.edu), Professor of History at the University of West Georgia.  He describes the shift in electoral maps, party policies, and the thinking of the country in general that began in 1976 that has resulted in what we’re seeing today.  He goes on to chat about the Catholic Church and the changes that have befallen it since the late 1960s.

Governor Glenn Youngkin won the Virginia governor's race last November largely because parents weren't happy about the outgoing governor's policies and mandates. The new governor has undone those policies but now faces legal challenges from progressives. We welcome to the program former Deputy Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Virginia, Mr. Ken Davis. He looks at the battles Youngkin is facing as well as the legality of executive orders and the increasing irrelevance of legislatures. Whenever attempts at reforming government are enacted, government bureaucrats fight back.

Free speech is essential for a free society. Why then is there such a brutal war on it? Back with us today to discuss is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. The Left is waging this war and it is destructive to freedom if you look at their activities and ideologies. But reality is not on their side. Leftists never address the specifics of the misinformation they say is being put forth by conservatives. And they will not debate you because there is no substance to their arguments. So like most battles in history, they may cause a lot of damage, and freedoms will be ravaged in the process, but eventually, reality will win out.

John Loeffler: Twisted Groupthink

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.

Christmas without a Christ, salvation without a savior, and redemption without repentance. Those things are not possible but that doesn't stop many people today from wanting them. John opens our Christmas show taking a look at the two things we are guaranteed to encounter in our lives: reality and God. Those aforementioned people are looking for solid rock truth, but in Marxism, which only traffics in false narratives and disingenuous "truth" claims. Christ, the reason for Christmas, is at odds with Marxism. One of them is true while the other is false. We all know which one wins that battle.

So why do young people so often look for truth in Marxism and socialism? Has it always been that way or is it specific to today's youth? Our first guest this week is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He posits that young people have grown up with little strife but the real world is, in their minds, too cruel when they grow up and encounter it. They turn then to socialism as a replacement parent. He discusses how different generations have handled this and what we can do moving forward.

Finally this week, we break out the crystal ball for some speculation and analysis of the future. There is much rumbling in Washington DC and around the country about the future of Kamala Harris in the White House. What will become of her? Back with us to gaze into that crystal ball is writer and retired entrepreneur Bob Adelmann (thenewamerican.com). He gives his theories on the Vice President, but also looks at geopolitics, economics, and mandates as we deal with a weak leadership in America.

Lots of rumbling in Washington DC and around the country about the future of Kamala Harris in the White House: will she assume the presidency when President Biden can no longer do the job or will she be summarily let go?  We don't normally traffic in speculation, but for today, we are breaking out the crystal ball.  Back with us to gaze into it and give his outlook is writer and retired entrepreneur Bob Adelmann (thenewamerican.com).  He discusses a few theories, but also looks at the geopolitical, economic, and mandate issues surrounding us as we trudge through a weak and unstable leadership in America. 

Build Back Inflation

Given the policies that the current administration has put in place, it's not a shock that inflation is picking up. But some in government and the media are telling us it's not a problem. First up this week is Bruce Yandle (mercatus.org), Distinguished Adjunct Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. He draws on his previous experience at the top of the Federal Trade Commission to predict when our economic tipping point will be if we don't fix things now. He also shows us what a Bruce Yandle-led Federal Reserve would do to solve the problem.

The Democrat Party is the party in charge right now, causing this inflation. But prior to our last election, several political forecasters were betting the party would soon come to an end. Is that prediction still valid after the election? Bob Adelmann (thenewamerican.com), retired entrepreneur and conservative columnist, is here to answer that. He describes why the party would disappear in a few years and gives an early prediction as to how the 2022 midterm elections will turn out for both houses of Congress.

Finally this week, we take a look at why the catchphrase ‘Build Back Better' is an empty slogan that's actually accomplishing nothing. Joining us is Seton Motley (lessgovernment.org), Founder and President of the group Less Government. He looks at how everything fits together from our supply chain issues to China's rise after the fall of the Soviet Union to Chinese influence in our college education system. He finishes up weighing in on the future of pandemic-related issues in this country.

After 16 years in power, Angela Merkel will step down as Chancellor of Germany. The country's Social Democrats edged out her party in elections this week. What does that mean for Europe and the world going forward? We welcome back Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson to the program to give us an update on geopolitics. He looks at many issues, including Europe's impending energy crisis caused by the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline deal, China's threat of global dominance, and some dangerous Russian military exercises. Many countries in Europe, especially Germany, are walking into a crisis with their eyes wide open.

John often says that when danger reared its ugly head, the pastors turned and bravely fled. That could be used to describe today's church. But has it always been that way in America? Our next guest today is Dan Fisher (danfisherbrr.com), Co-Pastor of Fairview Baptist Church in Edmond, Oklahoma. He reminds us about the pastors from the late 18th century who bravely led their flock in battle to birth our Republic. Fast forward to today and many pastors turn and flee from conflict. He offers solutions to turn the tide.

Finally, we head north to Canuck country with fan favorite Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), writer at FrontPage Magazine and Jihad Watch. She discusses a situation where a Jewish judge has been barred from presiding over cases involving Muslims. It points to a larger problem within the Canadian government and media where talking points and so-called facts are actually flipped upside down. We've gotten to the point where lies are being marketed as truth.
