With the Left entrenched in nearly every arena in society, it takes a lot to stand up to them. Someone who has experience in that fight joins us today: Rachel Alexander (intellectualconservative.com), Founder and Editor of the Intellectual Conservative. She recounts how Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is taking on both Arizona State University and the Arizona Bar Association (who retaliated against him for going after the school). The media and the politicos are showing their hypocrisy yet again in highlighting his defeats and ignoring his successes. Battling the hornet's nest takes a toll, but there are some brave souls out there willing to do it. Will there be more?
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.
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.
The slippery slope fallacy is the claim that a particular action will trigger a negative chain of events, positing as true a number of vaguely defined steps in between that draws out an emotional response. John leads off the show this week looking at a couple of slippery slope examples in the news today.
We then transition to the topic of fraud and how many people have claimed that there was plenty of it in the 2020 election. More than a year later, technology has uncovered a portion of that fraud, known as phantom voting. We welcome fraud detection expert Jay Valentine (contingencysales.com) to the show. He explains what phantom voting is, how sovereign fraud is corrupting the voting process, and reveals that certain groups were allowed real-time access to voting information the night of the election. This fraud must be reformed if the integrity of this country is to remain intact.
When the Biden administration shamefully pulled out of Afghanistan, Americans and equipment were left behind. But Afghan women, who had enjoyed a little freedom while U.S. troops were there, also became trapped after the pullout. Joining us today is Dr. John Barber (johnbarberbooks.com), Professor of Theology at Whitefield Theological Seminary. He is an expert on the plight of women in the Middle East and North Africa and shows us what life is like for women there. He also looks at ways Christians can help.
Finally, we dive into the free speech issue, especially where it concerns censorship by Big Tech elites in Silicon Valley. Freelance writer Michael Tennant (thenewamerican.com) wraps up the show this week discussing Section 230, search result manipulation, and the public-private workaround being perpetrated by the government and Big Tech.
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.
Many people have long suspected that there was fraud in the 2020 election. Now, technology has uncovered a portion of that fraud: phantom voting. We welcome fraud detection expert Jay Valentine (contingencysales.com) to the podcast today. He explains what phantom votes actually are and how it impacted the last presidential election. He defines the term sovereign fraud – essentially an inside job by election officials – and reveals that certain groups were allowed access to voting systems on the night of the election. Exposing this potentially felonious activity may be the only way to stop it moving forward. But whenever reform is proposed, those benefiting from the fraud fight it relentlessly.
John was a guest recently on the program Stand Up for the Truth with David Fiorazo on Q90FM out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. We'll play that interview for you today. John covers a number of topics for your listening pleasure, including the bias of the news media, the different levels of the ideological left, and the dangers of a one-party system. He also looks at online censorship, blue state to red state migration, and how climate change narratives overshadowed the power problem in Texas last winter. It's a mélange of topics and vintage John Loeffler on today's podcast.
Double feature on today's podcast. First up, we've seen the showdown coming for some time – Big Tech versus Free Speech. Will the Constitution's First Amendment protection survive or will Silicon Valley become the center for speech in the U.S.? Freelance writer Michael Tennant (thenewamerican.com) joins us today to tackle this issue. He and John look at Section 230, manipulation of search results, and the government's plan to use Big Tech firms to do what they cannot.
Next up is Lea Patterson (firstliberty.org), Counsel with First Liberty. She discusses the religious freedom case in Maine that was argued before the Supreme Court yesterday. Parents should not be excluded from providing their children with opportunities just because they choose to enroll them in a religious school.
There are many people in this country who are standing up against the woke, against the totalitarians, against the Marxists. One of those folks is here to lead off the show this week, free speech activist Simon Campbell. He details how a school board in Pennsylvania – one he once served on – has denied some parents the right to speak out against the board members. Three of those parents, together with Simon, are taking the board to court. He also looks at ways to improve education. He embodies John's axiom: I will not sit down; I will not shut up!
Another fighter who is standing up and doing something is best-selling author and feminist leader Dr. Phyllis Chesler (phyllis-chesler.com). She is spearheading efforts to help some Afghan women who don't feel safe in their own country escape what would almost assuredly be a terrible fate. She and John also discuss the sticky and complex issues surrounding immigration, especially the concern regarding assimilation to Western culture.
John has often said that if what is logical does not seem to be happening, then some other agenda is afoot. There's nothing logical in the opposition to voter ID, so the question is: what's the other agenda? Rounding out the show this week is Dr. John Lott (crimeresearch.org), Founder and President of the Crime Prevention Research Center. He shows what other countries do with voter ID and asks why democrats here oppose it. We all know why. We just need politicians to stand up and do something about it.
If what is logical does not seem to be happening, then some other agenda is afoot. There's nothing logical in the opposition to voter ID – so what's the other agenda? Joining us today is John Lott (crimeresearch.org), Founder and President of the Crime Prevention Research Center. He points out that virtually every other country around the world has stricter voter ID laws and procedures than the U.S. They even have agreement on these policies between opposing parties! So why do the democrats here oppose it? We all know why. Now if only politicians with a backbone would do something about it.
