What if, instead of people moving from blue states to red states – to escape terrible policies – geographic parts of the blue states themselves moved? Joining us today is Michael McCarter (greateridaho.org), President of Move Oregon's Border. He tells us of his group's initiative to transfer several eastern counties in Oregon into the state of Idaho, effectively moving the border between each state. There are several steps to make this happen, but they have finally managed to get the plan on a May 2021 ballot in Oregon. Ultimately successful or not, the plan highlights the frustration many conservatives have when they are forced to live with terrible policies just because they reside inside a blue state's borders.
We have seen anti-Semitic attitudes, groups, and ideologies throughout the world, but what goes into the thinking behind it? Dr. Charles Jacobs (peaceandtolerance.org), President of Americans for Peace and Tolerance, joins us to examine why people oppose Israel so virulently but are OK with other countries' atrocities. He also looks at why Jews in the West vote for anti-Semitic politicians, and why the UN and many Western governments seem to have it out for the state of Israel.
Next, we've heard a lot about court packing in the past few weeks since Amy Cony Barrett's nomination and now acceptance to the Supreme Court bench. Mike Berry (firstliberty.org), General Counsel at First Liberty Institute is here to explain what court packing is, why democrats are so up in arms about this right now, and how activist judges torture legal language. It's constitutional warfare – who will come out on top?
John and Producer Steve then sit down to discuss how some far left policies are beginning to or could soon spiral out of control. They look at the far left's attempt to fundamentally transform the country through court packing and eliminating the Electoral College, one-party rule in some states that have literally led to disaster, and woke corporations' critical race theory sessions.
John finishes up the show this week with a sobering and sometimes graphic update on religious persecution, in the countries of China, Pakistan, Egypt, Russia, Nigeria, and Kenya.
As you listen to the craziness in the news lately, you have to realize that we have a worldview battle on our hands. On today's podcast, John and Producer Steve comment on some far left policies that represent one side of that battle. Those policies have begun to or could soon spiral out of control. John and Steve discuss the far left's attempt to fundamentally transform the country through court packing and eliminating the Electoral College, one-party rule in some states that have literally led to disaster, and woke corporations' critical race theory sessions.
