We've discussed before the nefarious nature of ESG scores, which are social credit scores for businesses. Today we look at how these socialist standards would affect the oil industry. First up this week is author and scholar John Horvat (returntoorder.org). He examines the recent rule proposed by the Securities and Exchange Commission that would force public companies to disclose climate risks involved in their operation. This rule, motivated by ideology, not economics, gives the impression that America is weak and for the oil industry, will result in declined oil production at a time when energy needs are on the rise.

We then transition to the education arena, showing how dysfunctional our schools have become, even in conservative areas. John first chats with Adam Guillette (aim.org), President of Accuracy in Media. He looks at how CRT is still being taught in schools – even in red states and even after parents succeeded in removing it from curricula. Teachers have admitted that no matter what happens, they'll just close the classroom door and teach what they want.

How did our education system get to the point where teachers choose to teach CRT or discuss sexual topics with children? We welcome two guests: Richard Hawkins (christedu.org), retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force and Dr. Max Lyons (face.net), Director of Teaching Services at the Foundation for American Christian Education. They reveal how teachers' colleges are preparing educators to indoctrinate students with socialist lesson plans. Dr. Lyons shows how his foundation has developed a biblical approach to teaching.

We wrap up the show this week with a positive message. People around the world need to hear and read the Word of God and one of those places is in South America. Joining John is David Witt (spritofmartyrdom.com), CEO of Spirit of Martyrdom International. He describes the need for God's Word in Venezuela and Colombia and what his organization is doing to provide Bibles and leadership in churches there. God has begun a revival of the Christian Church and a renewal of hearts, including those in hard-to-reach tribal areas.

The Securities and Exchange Commission recently proposed a rule that would force public companies to disclose climate risks involved in their operation. Joining us today to go over this is author and scholar John Horvat II (returntoorder.org). This rule and others like it don't make sense economically, so they must be motivated by ideology. Regardless of the source, the perception is that America is weak and working against itself. In regards to this rule, oil companies will face harassment and declined production because the Biden administration has declared war on American energy at a time when we need it the most.

Can’t Serve Two Masters

This week, it's a show about division. First up, there is a detailed, nuanced divide in Christianity where you have fundamental Christians on one side and social justice Christians on the other. Our first guest this week is Doug Morgan (uncommonsensepodcast.com), host of the Uncommon Sense podcast. He looks at the importance of maintaining relationships within Christianity without sacrificing doctrine. It's always been a delicate balance between living in a fallen world and holding fast to the core tenets of your faith. You can't serve two masters – in this case worldviews. Choose wisely.

This week marked the 32nd anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the ultimate symbol of the divide between the Soviets and the West. John asks why the West has never learned anything from the brutal Communism that gripped countries and cities behind the Iron Curtain for decades. We then welcome back to the show Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He discusses China and Iran's economic partnership, the climate conference, and Covid tyranny in cities. He also examines what life was really like under communism in Russia and shows that even Vladimir Putin knows America is inching closer to that reality.

Finally, we look at the division within the Democrat Party. Retired engineer John Green is back with us to try and make sense of the illogical, inept, and bumbling policies of the current administration. Are the power brokers running the show behind President Biden being frustrated by their public leader's incompetence? A civil war has broken out within the Democrat Party. Will the deep division destroy the party or push them completely into socialism? Only time will tell.

Nothing seems to be making any logical sense – Covid is still happening but immigrants get to come here unchecked for the virus; climate is so important supposedly but China and Russia don't show up to the recent climate conference; and politicos bemoan higher gas prices but cheer the closure of pipelines.  What is happening?  Retired engineer, and contributing author at American Thinker, John Green is back with us today to try and make sense of things.  He looks at the implosion of the democrat party and how their dishonesty and ineptitude are ruining everything.  Also, the real power brokers are not helped by the incompetence of the democrats' public leader.  A civil war is under way in their party.  We'll see if they reform or disband. 

On this Veteran's Day, we honor those men and women who took the oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. We thank you for putting on the uniform and selflessly putting yourself in harm's way to protect us.

There is what's known as a black or white fallacy surrounding this coronavirus pandemic: it's either no big deal or it's the end of the world. As usual, the truth lies somewhere in the middle. In this week's extended boralogue, John covers the facts, not the fiction, behind the disease. He begins by accurately stating the medical truth of the virus and then pivots to the economic impact.

He is then joined by his better half, Carol Loeffler, to further explore how the coronavirus is affecting various countries financially on the global geo-economic chessboard. They then examine the virus's influence on the oil markets.

Will this black swan event push us into a recession or could it also push us into a long emergency? John welcomes back to the program futurist and author James Kunstler (www.kunstler.com), who discusses the future of oil and shale production in the U.S., where transportation is headed, and the danger when crises like this threaten what we perceive as normality.

We finish off the show with Dr. Jenna Silakoski (www.northidahodpc.com), a physician in North Idaho, who gives a realistic on the ground view of the coronavirus and how she is handling it from a doctor's perspective.

John's quote of the week:
"In any crisis, the most important thing to remember is God understands and He will provide for us as we go. You can ask Him for wisdom. 'Father, show me where to go and what I need to do.' So let's move on and face this. It's a challenge. But God is always up to challenges."

On this week's extra segment, we play John's latest guest appearance on local radio station KYMS with host Lee Lancaster. In addition to giving a martyred church update, John discusses with Lee the coronavirus (as well as an interesting way to keep from getting it) and defending your faith in times of trouble.
