eliminating fossil fuels

If at first you don't succeed – at thwarting the Constitution – try end running it instead. Several examples on the show this week of globalists end running the law in order to continue fundamentally transforming this country. First up we welcome Stefano Gennarini (c-fam.org), Vice President for Legal Studies at the Center for Family and Human Rights. He looks at how the United Nations is considering making abortion a fundamental human right, poised to declare it an established customary right under international law. This could undo the overturn of Roe v Wade that is expected soon from the Supreme Court.

We had a successful economy in the U.S., largely due to a thriving energy industry. Somehow that was all quickly undone. Next up this week is Daniel Turner (powerthefuture.com), Founder and CEO of Power the Future. He discusses how the current administration is trying to gaslight the public with truly unbelievable mixed messages on energy. He reminds us how fossil fuels keep the world running and how renewables aren't yet ready for prime time. Ultimately, the misleading narratives and their related policies weakened a very prosperous economy.

A capitalist economy runs on competition and fair business practices – or at least it's supposed to. Big Tech companies are getting around that by unfairly undercutting the little guy. Here to chat about that is Christopher Bedford (rightforge.com), Chief Communications Officer at RightForge. There's a new act in Congress that aims to curtail these unethical practices, much like antitrust acts used to do. Big Tech, though, is fighting tooth and nail to defeat it.

Finally this week, we welcome Justin Butterfield (firstliberty.org), Deputy General Counsel at First Liberty Institute. He looks at the case of an Oakland University student who was evicted from campus housing. What did she do wrong? She shared online how to apply for a religious exemption to the covid vaccine. Once again, we see an example of elitists end running the Constitution and violating, in this case, religious freedom.

Messaging on energy from the White House is all over the place from 'Putin is to blame' to 'greedy oil companies' to 'oil companies aren't making enough' – sometimes all three at once! Joining us today is Daniel Turner (powerthefuture.com), Founder and CEO of Power the Future. He looks at the clearly Marxist aspect of the current administration's messaging strategy on energy and climate, and reveals the reality behind the fossil fuels vs renewables debate. The entire narrative sweeping across the climate agenda is all about power. Not the kind that fossil fuels make possible, but the kind that globalists want to wield over you and me.

If we're going to talk about climate change and the myriad of issues surrounding it, we must first understand it from a 30,000-foot view. John opens the program this week framing the issue, pointing out the players involved and the arguments they make.

We then welcome to the show UK-based Rupert Darwall (realclearfoundation.org), policy analyst and Senior Fellow at the RealClear Foundation. He examines how the climate change ideology has invaded the business world, largely through ESG scores. He calls it the socialization of capitalism. Many people are rolling with the narrative right now, but soon conditions will begin to deteriorate and it's only when reality becomes harsh that people wake up and start pushing back.

But can you even push back right now? Debate and dissent have been shut down by the powers that be controlling the climate narrative. John welcomes to the program Gregory Wrightstone (co2coalition.org), geologist and Executive Director of the CO2 Coalition. He shows how scientific studies, charts, and models are often manipulated to both further the narrative and stifle debate. If you try to debate, and you use facts and data to back up your assertions, the party of science will shut you down.

Finally this week, we take a look at the real world costs to the climate agenda – fuel costs rising, expensive electric cars, etc. – and ask: is this being done on purpose? Wrapping up our guest list this week is Levi Russell (levirussell.com), Assistant Teaching Professor of Applied Economics at the University of Kansas. He discusses the practicality of trying to achieve what the climate alarmists say they want. It all looks pretty impossible. Could it be that the real plan is to make energy so costly that we won't use it?

With fuel costs up and electric cars expensive to make and to purchase, you have to ask yourself: is this all happening on purpose? And if so, why? Joining us today is Levi Russell (levirussell.com), Assistant Teaching Professor of Applied Economics at the University of Kansas. He looks at the problems associated with obtaining rare earth metals now and in the future and the sheer impossibility of achieving what the climate alarmists say they're trying to achieve. Could it be that the plan all along was to make energy so expensive that we just don't use it?

The Moral Thing to Do

The First Amendment to our Constitution states in part that Congress shall not prohibit the free exercise of religion. One government committee is doing just that – in the name of morality. First up this week, John welcomes Andrew Beckwith (mafamily.org), President of the Massachusetts Family Institute. Vida Real, an Hispanic church in Massachusetts, has applied to open a Bible-based school. Even though they have met the requirements, the government panel in charge of approving such requests has denied them. One panel member thinks approval would not be the moral thing to do. For woke leftists, their ideology is a religion – one that always seems to be at odds with Christianity.

So in that case, a woke leftist appealed to morality, but how do people with no sense of morality get away with that? Next up this week, we talk with Rabbi Chananya Weissman (chananyaweissman.com), Founder of End the Madness in Jerusalem. He looks at the nature of morality as it has always been defined and shows how leftist woke religion is diametrically opposed to Judeo-Christian values. He also gives an update on the state of cancel culture and wokeism in Israel.

Finally this week, we transition to the topic of climate change with Dr. Judith Curry (judithcurry.com), President of the Climate Forecast Applications Network. If we're going to talk about climate change, the discussion must be sane and rational – not apocalyptic and ridiculous like so many claims today. Solutions must come from the local level, not a one-size fits all panacea from the globalists. Of course the reason why the conversation trends toward hysteria is so that the power, money, and control folks can enact their plans.

How many times have we heard that life as we know it will end in the next few years unless we fix the climate? Or carbon dioxide is killing us? We need rational debate not hysterics. Joining us today is climate expert Judith Curry (judithcurry.com), President of the Climate Forecast Applications Network. She posits that we need first to recognize that climate change is not an immediate threat. From there, we should get the facts straight and keep politics out of the discussion. Any solution should be discussed rationally at the local level, not a one-size fits all approach from the global level. We all know, however, why the powers that be are allowing the global climate hysteria narrative to move forward – power, money, and control.

Putting the Whole Puzzle Together

John often tackles the question: how did we get to where we are today? That's an important question, but so is: where are we heading? To lead off the show this week, John combines the two questions, looking at all the puzzle pieces affecting us today. He tackles the situation with Russia and Ukraine as well as inflation, oil prices, climate change, the push to discontinue fossil fuels, and the state of U.S. currency as it relates to the world. He shows how we got to where we are today and where we could end up tomorrow.

To better understand the bigger picture, today's millennials and gen-zees need to shed the progressive ideology they're taught in schools and adopt a facts over feelings approach to thinking. Joining us today is Jason Hill (jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago. He discusses politics, education, and culture and gives us hope in the face of the discouragement we see every day. He relates his experience with students and how many of them are beginning to wake up to the fact that something is wrong and maybe the truth really is more important than feelings.

John finishes up recapping the current situation we find ourselves in, once again putting the puzzle pieces together with the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the global economy, and the always pervasive climate change narrative. We are flying into a perfect storm; a storm caused by decades of insane policies. But God is our anchor and our hope and we should always pray for His guidance in our lives.

The signs pointing to where we are now have been out there for quite a while, but now that we're seeing severe worldwide issues, it's important to piece everything together. John flies solo today, analyzing a number of geopolitical chess pieces to produce an understandable picture. He looks at the situation with Russia and Ukraine as well as inflation, oil prices, climate change, the push to discontinue fossil fuels, and the state of U.S. currency as it relates to the world. All of these things are interrelated and shows us not only how we got to where we are, but also gives a clear picture of where we're heading..

Critical Marxist Race Theory

What exactly is behind the critical race theory ideology? John Murawski, an award-winning journalist who writes for RealClear Investigations, joins us to play devil’s advocate and point out the thinking behind both sides of the issue. The values our country has always upheld – hard work, individualism, etc. – are looked at as systems of oppression by those who espouse critical race theory. Ultimately, the problem is there’s no shared vocabulary and no shared system of values between the two sides and that’s what makes things so unstable.

The climate changers and environmentalists are always advocating for green energy but do they really understand the consequences? Here to discuss is environmental consultant Steve Milloy, founder and publisher of JunkScience.com. He looks at the realities of eliminating fossil fuels and going with green energy. We have to be smart about how we approach this and think of the consequences before moving forward. Sound environmentalism has to be based on sound science and sound economics.

Finally this week, we welcome Brian Kennedy (presentdangerchina.org), Chairman of the Committee on the Present Danger: China with the Center for Security Policy. He examines how China wants to remake the world economic order and they want to be on top of it. They are also beefing up their military and technology sectors. The most successful defense against China is for America to be united in its recognition of China as a threat.
