On June 11, here in North Idaho, a group of alleged white supremacists were arrested at an LGBTQ pride event. Was this a false flag event meant to further a hate narrative or was it the real thing? Back with us today is William Jasper (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American Magazine. He describes what happened in Idaho and how, in his view, it was similar to January 6 and Charlottesville as far as being a false flag event. It sounds like a conspiracy theory, but so many of those keep coming true, you just never know.
John opens the show this week with a brief comment on how our Constitution is working exactly as it was meant to work. And in doing so, it is stymieing the plans of the Left, which is why you see the constant attacks on the Constitution.
We then transition to our first topic: abortion. Abortion is in the spotlight due to the recent Dobbs decision, but how is the Church dealing with it? We welcome Dr. David J. Ayers (faithandfreedom.com), Fellow for Marriage and Family at the Institute for Faith and Freedom. He looks at how the church has taught about abortion historically and how they deal with women who suffer from the aftereffects of it. He relays his own experiences in how the Church has handled the issue of abortion.
When we discuss the topic of totalitarianism, both in the past and happening now, it's important to take a step back and study what exactly totalitarianism is. Helping us do that this week is literature and history teacher Walker Larson (thehazelnut.substack.com). He describes the different stages of totalitarianism, based on what we've seen in history, and shows some pretty shocking similarities to society today. If you want to understand how raging at the Constitution can lead to tyranny, this is the interview to listen to.
Finally, we look at a blatant power grab on the globalist stage. The World Health Organization has been horrible when it comes to accurate medical information, but they are maneuvering for more power. Rounding out the show this week is Alex Newman (thenewamerican.com), CEO of Liberty Sentinel Media and Senior Editor at The New American magazine. He describes how the United Nations is attempting to give the WHO powers to declare pandemic emergencies in any country regardless of whether that country gives consent or not.
We often talk about totalitarianism, that which occurred in the past as well as what's happening now. On today's podcast, we're going to take a break from the news and get into the details of what totalitarianism exactly is. Joining us to chat about that is literature and history teacher Walker Larson (thehazelnut.substack.com). He describes the different stages of totalitarianism, based on what we've seen in history, and shows some pretty shocking similarities to society today. These stages, by the way, mark a vivid resemblance to the different stages of religious persecution.
What would really happen in a national emergency when the always trusted federal government purports to install protection measures but really just expands its powers? Joining us today to answer that is John Whitehead (rutherford.org), Founder and President of the Rutherford Institute. He discusses the things going on both behind the scenes and out in the open that sets the stage for a tightening of control and a suspension of rights should there be an emergency. He offers his solutions as to what can be done about it.
It's time for John's monthly stint as interviewee as he sits down with Lee Lancaster on KYMS, a local radio station here in the Inland Northwest. He and Lee discuss a lot of topics, including the outbreak of failing narratives, the media's delicate balance between warring leftist factions, and which direction everyone will choose now that the paradigm is shifting. They also cover the Russia-Ukraine tension and John gives a sobering report on the worldwide persecuted Christian Church.
It's common today to refer to Christianity, Judaism, and Islam collectively as the Abrahamic religions. Is there a reason for this? Joining us today from Melbourne, Australia is Mark Durie (markdurie.com), Director of the Institute for Spiritual Awareness. There are clear differences between the faiths and its important to have honest conversations about not only current issues but also their history if we're going to understand those differences. Often politically correct pressure gets in the way, people start screaming about extremism and hate, and suddenly respecting someone whose beliefs you don't agree with becomes impossible. Let's have that honest conversation today.
The first part of the military oath, to support and defend the Constitution, is fairly straightforward. But the second part – to obey the orders of the President and superior officers – is beginning to interfere with the first part. Joining us today is Mike Berry (firstliberty.org), General Counsel for First Liberty Institute and member of the U.S. Marine Corps. He draws on his experience in the military to show the woke policies being put in place, including snitch lines. Also, if military personnel hold certain beliefs, they are now being labeled as extremist and anti-civil rights – beliefs such pro-life, traditional marriage, etc. If we continue down this line, our military enemies may not have to fire a shot to defeat us.
We heard from Avi Lipkin last Friday on the inside scoop of Israeli politics. Today we have a different guest to discuss the state of things in Israel following the hostilities with Gaza several weeks ago. Joining us from his home country is David Rubin (shilohisraelchildren.org), Founder and President of the Shiloh Israel Children's Fund and former mayor of Shiloh, Israel. He describes the efforts in finally forming a coalition government and what will likely be the policies moving forward for the new Bennett administration. He also looks at how Israel can learn from both its past successes and failures.
The terms "racist" and "white supremacist" are thrown around constantly in today's public discourse, but does anyone know the true meaning of the words? Jeff Schoep (www.beyondbarriersusa.org), Founder of Beyond Barriers, joins us today to describe his journey from leader of the country's largest neo-Nazi organization for 25 years to an outspoken opponent of hate and shepherd to those wishing to leave extremist organizations. He discusses how people align themselves with extremist groups to begin with, what his group believed during his tenure, and how he helps rescue people from the cycle of hatred.
