dishonest mainstream media

There is major flippage happening on the postmodern left side of culture - especially on popular TV talk shows and news channels. John sheds light on some of the tactics that Leftist activists use regarding elections and the control of mainstream media and politically correct narratives. He goes on to narrate clips from TV where post-moderns make moral assertions they wind up in self-contradiction, especially when the discussion moves from issue to issue.

After much outrage over CRT, it seemed to have faded into obscurity. But news of a Missouri school district including questions in a math assignment related to sexual activity has raised questions about its return. First up this week, we welcome to the show Andrea Widburg (americanthinker.com), Deputy Editor at American Thinker. She looks at how this one example points to a much bigger problem: school curricula are still rife with woke lies about history along with vivid sexual depictions. Thankfully, most parents – and even a few on the left – are not fooled and are beginning to see the truth. Is wokus pokus in schools finally being drowned out by the truth?

Many in younger generations today rely on Google to look up the truth about history or other issues. The problem with that is: how do you know what you're finding is actually true? John flies solo in this segment, examining how much of what Google purports to be fact is often taken out of context. You need to understand facts in context in order to understand why people behave the way they do. Knowing human nature and applying it to history gives you a much clearer, fact-based look at our past, rather than the wokus pokus version we often see. This will help our children in schools as they wade through the waters of indoctrination.

Finally this week, we take a brief look at one of the latest political scandals: the Hunter Biden laptop. Joining us is Lloyd Billingsley (independent.org), Policy Fellow at the Independent Institute. He discusses the further downfall of the intelligence community after current and former IC members published a letter incorrectly denouncing the laptop story as disinformation. The CIA and FBI have become politicized for one side and while doing so have neglected their real job, which is keeping the nation safe.

It's now clear that the Hunter Biden laptop story was not Russian disinformation, despite politicos and the media claiming that it was. But the hypocrisy is only a symptom of a much larger problem. Joining us today is Lloyd Billingsley (independent.org), Policy Fellow at the Independent Institute. He discusses the further downfall of the intelligence community after current and former IC members published a letter incorrectly denouncing the laptop story as disinformation. The CIA and FBI have become politicized for one side and while doing so have neglected their real job of keeping the nation safe. Will there be consequences for them? So far, the answer is no.

Narratives have flown freely ever since January 6, 2021, and it's tough at times to get the real story, especially from the leftist mainstream media. One man has written a fact-filled article detailing the day's events. Back with us today after a long hiatus is the author of that article, Bill Jasper (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American magazine. He and John discuss the use of the word ‘insurrection' to describe the event, the lack of firearms by the protestors, the motives for the continuous leftist narrative, the so-called “bi-partisan” J6 committee, and the insertion of agents provocateurs on that day. It's all J6 all the time on today's podcast.

We all know that the mainstream media has devolved into a propaganda machine for the Left. They have now been exposed promoting anti-Israel 'news.' Joining us today from Israel is Tamar Sternthal (camera.org), Director of CAMERA's Israel office. She gives examples of media malfeasance, including the promotion of Israel as aggressor against Gaza when Gaza was the attacker first; and a feature of a professor with ties to Hamas as being a bridge builder when, if you listen to his lectures in Arabic, he is the exact opposite, teaching his students to hate Israel. She and John also discuss the state of journalism today.

The traditional Western worldview is battling with the new socialist worldview and somehow truth is lost in the chaos. In this week's boralogue, John looks at the importance of truth over narrative. Those who say America is a horrible place willfully ignore the much worse conditions in other countries. Antifa claims to have tolerance but exhibits none of it. Always look at what is real, what is actually happening; not what others tell you is true to further their narrative.

Marxist ideologies are mixing with Christian worldviews. How did we get to this point? Paul Kengor (www.faithandfreedom.com), Chief Academic Fellow at the Institute for Faith and Freedom, examines both worldviews, gives examples of how atrocious Marxism has been, and asserts that it has no place in true Christianity.

The second round of elections in Israel has come and gone and still there is no clear winner. Avi Lipkin (www.avilipkin.net), author and founder of the new Bible Bloc Party in Israel, explains how Israeli elections work including the need for a majority coalition, and touches on geopolitics in the Middle East.

Education in America and the West has been co-opted by the United Nations. Alex Newman (www.thenewamerican.com), Foreign Correspondent for The New American, returns to discuss the World Core Curriculum – essentially a global Common Core – and how the newly named rules-based world order is manipulating children.

John's quote of the week:
"When it comes to tolerance, we have to ask why people who are promoting tolerance wear masks and then block the rights intolerantly of other people – especially of elderly women trying to cross the street with a walker to hear an address about free speech. Theoretically they are exercising free speech, but they don't want anybody else to exercise it."

In this week's Extras segment, we play John's latest interview on local radio station KYMS. John and host Lee Lancaster discuss persecution in Communist China as well as other areas, the dysfunction surrounding Brexit, and the dishonest mainstream media.
