energy crisis

Is green energy ready for prime time?  As of now, it is not.  But is Great Britain getting the message?  With us from the UK today is Dr. John Constable (thegwpf.com), Energy Editor for the Global Warming Policy Foundation.  He explains how the UK's climate policy over the past few years focused on the short term at the expense of the long term.  Geopolitics and media coverage and climate change narratives have all influenced energy decision-making.  And the energy sector isn't the only one affected: his country's economy has been impacted as well.  He asserts that it's perfectly reasonable to have a climate policy but that policy has to be rational.  Right now it isn't.

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.

We kick off October with an in-studio conversation between John and Producer Steve.  They cover a variety of topics, including the possible emergence of a parallel society away from woke indoctrination and policies, the inconsistencies in the vaccine narrative, energy troubles in Europe, and a new challenge to Roe v Wade.  They also discuss threats to traditionalism, how freedom is at the heart of what this country stands for, and the stark difference between political narratives and reality.

Periodically, we invite Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson on to give us an update on geopolitics, specifically in Europe, but also around the world. Today, he and John examine a number of issues, including post-Merkel Germany, and Europe's impending energy crisis caused by the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline and Russia's increasing influence in the industry. They also look at China and its hostage taking policies along with their views of the U.S. under Biden. Reuben also discusses the latest Russian military exercises that seem to simulate a future attack against western Europe, NATO, and Ukraine.

What does it mean to be a citizen?  We all know traditionally what the answer is, but with globalism rearing its ugly head, the definition may well have become meaningless.  Back with us today by popular demand is Victor Davis Hanson (victorhanson.com), Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution.  He explains the globalists' motives in destroying national citizenry in favor of a global one, making sense of the turmoil we see in the news and in society.  But the national citizenry is pushing back.  He even discusses whether or not those in the Biden administration understand that their actions are creating chaos or if they are completely incompetent.  Fascinating conversation with the great Victor Davis Hanson!

Two months ago today, Texas experienced a rare winter blast resulting in a widespread blackout. Debate has since raged over what source of energy was to blame. Robert Murphy (independent.org), Research Fellow at the Independent Institute, joins us today, to clear up the debate, having spent time looking at the data. He discusses the sometimes competing narratives about wind energy in Texas, whether natural gas stepped up during the crisis, and why Texas is on its own grid. He and John also zoom out and look at the broader energy picture in the U.S., including the role renewables play and whether nuclear is a valid option.

News stories pile up here in the studio so every once in awhile John, Carol, and Steve sit around and discuss important issues stemming from those stories. On today's podcast, the trio look at the cold wave that hit Texas and the issues surrounding that, a bill in the House that seems to target only one person – former President Trump, the push toward a digital currency, and Andrew Cuomo's view from underneath the bus amid the New York nursing home scandal. They also examine the chaos surrounding postmodernist thinking and do their best to try and define the nebulous term 'whiteness.'
