European Union crisis

John flies solo today, digging deep into the archives of media history to play a speech given in 1938 by American politician Lewis Schwellenbach (D-WA). Why is he playing this speech? To show the similarities and differences between what happened with Hitler overrunning Austria in 1938 and what Putin is doing in Ukraine today. There are many similarities with what politicians and the media were saying then and now. The primary difference is that today, we are far more connected globally and unable to take an isolationist stance like we could back then. It's important to learn lessons from history and apply them to today.

John and Producer Steve sit down to chat about a variety of topics today, including the absolute failure, despite the left's best efforts, of the climate change narrative, as well as the media's failure to report actual news, instead replacing it with anonymous sources and faulty fact checking. They also discuss America's role as the world's policeman and whether that will continue or should continue – and if it doesn't, who steps in to fill that void?

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..

There are many learning opportunities to be gained from Russia's assault on Ukraine and from other political situations in the world today.  John flies solo today, looking at many principles we've discussed on the show over the years that are playing out now.  Reality becomes real, but not before utopians cause the loss of life and property.  The value of international guarantees is not too high.  Never choose someone to get you out of a situation when they were the one that got you into it.  An armed populace is a prepared populous.  There are many more Steel-isms included today.  A concerted effort is being waged to erode everything associated with Western civilization, including sovereignty, so beware the globalists who wish to bring it about.

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.

Russia, Ukraine, and China are heating up geopolitically while the U.S. seems to be treading water. Who's in charge here? Defense expert Reuben Johnson is back with us this week from his vantage point in Kiev, Ukraine. He looks at the implications of Russia's military buildup on the border of his country as well as China's aerial aggression above Taiwan. He also analyzes Russia's tactics with the EU and NATO as well how they view the current U.S. administration. Critical question: can the Biden administration handle not only the many domestic issues it faces but also two super powers encroaching on other countries' lands? Not only do we know the answer to that question, but so does the world.

The U.S. seems to be clearly headed toward a totalitarian state. Can we stop it? Believe it or not, we can learn from the coup that ousted the Shah of Iran in 1979. Shahram Hadian (tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth in Love Ministry, joins us to give a history of what happened leading up to and during the 1979 revolution in Iran. Calls were made for free education and health care, media began favoring a particular side, and elections were rigged along with candidates and even outcomes. Sound familiar? Will we end up as Iran did or will we fight back and keep history from repeating itself.

John finishes up this week's program recommending that people ignore the silly pablum of the mainstream media and look at the reality of the world we live in. We need to recognize what's really going on, focus on it, and then formulate a plan of action on how to deal with it.
