Fascism

The Biden administration announced that they are suspending the Disinformation Governance Board. But is the desire to control information really gone from our government? First up this week, we welcome writer and scientist Dr. Matt Briggs (wmbriggs.com) to the program. He shows that even though the disinformation board is on hiatus, other similar offices still exist, like the Office of Environment Justice. Government, in establishing what disinformation is supposed to be, is also establishing what truth is supposed to be.

The need to create a disinformation board in the first place is still prevalent and, according to our next guest, is more about being afraid of dissent rather than disinformation. Back with us today is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. The left has evolved from supporting all free speech no matter what to now demonizing free speech – especially if it goes against their narrative.

We finish up this week with a report out of Canada that the Trudeau administration may soon require journalists to obtain a license if they want to keep doing business. Joining us is freelance writer and software engineer Michael Tennant (thenewamerican.com). Journalists are not yet required to get a license in Canada, but subsidies and preferential treatment tend to go to those who have one. With freedom of speech under attack in the U.S., how long before we see a similar requirement for our press?

This Memorial Day, we take time to honor, reflect, and remember those who've made the ultimate sacrifice for our country so we can keep those freedoms we often talk about.

The disinformation board has been paused, but the need to create it in the first place is more about being afraid of dissent, not disinformation. Back with us today is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He shows us how the natural evolution of the left seems to have gone from supporting all free speech no matter what to now demonizing free speech – especially if it goes against their narrative. He looks at what the endgame is for those on the left and on the right.

It’s Time to Get Real

In the midst of the globalists' Great Reset plans, it's important that you root yourself and your family in reality because, as we always say, it will win in the end. First up this week to discuss some of those nefarious Great Reset plans is author and academic freedom spokesman Michael Rectenwald (michaelrectenwald.com). He looks at sustainability measures, ESG scores, and stakeholder capitalism. We're even close to implementing China's social credit score here in America. Anchoring yourself to the truth and reality will help get you through the Reset storms that are coming.

If you don't anchor yourself to reality, all kinds of problems crop up that can quickly spiral out of control when reality becomes real. What should we be teaching our children so they avoid those problems? Joining us this week to discuss this is author and cryptography expert Paul Rosenberg (freemansperspective.com). He advocates for teaching your children how to think through a problem, rooting themselves in reality first. Once that's established, it becomes easy to maneuver through different ideas on the way to solving a problem. If reality is going to win, it's best to be anchor yourself there.

Finally this week, we ask a fundamental question about our country: if free speech is essential for a free society, why is there such a brutal war on it? Here to answer that question is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He shows the tactics of those on the Left who are waging war to fundamentally transform our society. They claim the Right peddles misinformation, but can't name any specifics. They won't debate you because they lack substance to their arguments. So instead they wage a war on free speech so that no one can challenge their ideals. They will lose, though, because reality always becomes real. Share

China established communism, then added capitalism later to keep it going. The U.S., however, is doing the opposite. We've had capitalism for a while and now we're infusing China-style communism. Back with us today after a long hiatus is author and academic freedom spokesman Michael Rectenwald (michaelrectenwald.com). He shows how the Great Reset isn't coming – it's already here. He discusses stakeholder capitalism, ESG scores, and sustainability. We're even close to implementing China's social credit score in America. We can fight back, but we must do it lawfully.

After several weeks of intense reading and studying, John asked author, researcher, and Spanish language radio host César Vidal (cesarvidal.com) to be on the program. He joins us this week to discuss the new kind of socialism we're seeing in the West. It has technocracy, public-private partnerships, and a particularly insidious campaign to demonize nationalism and infiltrate the Christian church by undermining its roots. It's all part of their attempt to destroy America and the West.

We then move to Texas and its new state abortion ban. Abortions are down as a result and opponents are frustrated. But could that frustration boomerang back on conservatives? Next up this week is Jacob Sullum (reason.com), Senior Editor at Reason Magazine. He looks at the pros and cons of the Texas bill and the precedents it could set. This bill, which seems great for pro-lifers, could be detrimental to other conservative issues and groups in the future.

Finally this week, little is being said about Iran after the Afghanistan debacle, but a new report suggests that Iran could be weeks away from possessing nuclear weapons. Ken Timmerman (iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, rounds out the show this week. Iran's nuclear program is advancing, but their government is in disarray. Unfortunately for us, the Biden administration and our military seem just as chaotic.

César Vidal: A New Kind of Socialism

John has been waiting a long time to interview today's guest, spending many weeks poring over his books. Joining us is author, researcher, and Spanish language radio host César Vidal (cesarvidal.com). He and John discuss how Western democracy needs to keep its Biblical roots intact in order to survive. A new kind of socialism is upon us – one that's more technocratic with a public-private partnership thrown in. It's invading every aspect of our lives, especially the Christian church. That's where our roots lie. Mr. Vidal also examines the Reformation and counter-Reformation as it pertains to North America versus South America.

Now that hostilities have theoretically abated in the latest Israel-Gaza war, it's important to look at, and learn from, what really happened there. Back with us today is Bruce Thornton (fresnostate.edu), Professor of Classics and Humanities at California State University in Fresno. It's hard to filter out the reality of the situation in the Middle East – or any situation – when politicians and the media push lies meant to further narratives. Examples include how the Palestinians want peace, despite their actions; the climate debate is settled, except the debate has never happened; and universities say they are all about education, but it really seems like they're all about grant money and donations. Narratives may sound nice, but when you're trying to solve real problems in the real world, all they do is get in the way.

Culture Wars in the Westersphere

Broadcast Running Time: 01:16:24

We notice that freedoms are starting to erode in the United States, but how are the other countries in the Westersphere faring? We begin this week by looking at a couple of stories from our neighbors to the north. Joining us is Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine and current Canadian citizen. She looks at Bill C10 which would limit private user's speech online if the government doesn't approve of it. She also examines how two people have been arrested simply for attending a church in Ontario Province that defied lockdown orders and held a service. Backlash is building in Canada, but is it too little too late?

We then turn our attention to Australia where John was a guest on Joshua Ferrara's podcast recently. The two discuss the importance of worldviews and the friction caused by Marxist thinking and tactics. They also look at how Australia is handling political correctness and methods employed by leftists against conservatives who won't put up with the woke agenda. Totalitarianism doesn't happen all at once; it occurs gradually over time. It's important to spot the increments and stop it before it's too late.

John finds himself as a guest on another podcast, this time Down Under on Joshua Ferrara's show in Australia. They discuss a number of topics, including the importance of worldviews, the division and friction caused by Marxist thinking and tactics, and how to stand up against persecution. John also explains the devious tactic used when conservatives complain about what Marxists are doing and are then subsequently labeled as racist or something else. Fascinating conversation!

The new totalitarianism springing up in the West will praise socialism as a way to infiltrate the church. How then will the church be affected and how should it fight back? Joining us today is Dr. Erwin Lutzer (moodymedia.org), Pastor Emeritus of Moody Bible Church, who debunks the myth that socialism and the Bible are compatible. The church is facing many assaults, including edicts which will infringe on religious freedom as well as cultural pressure that will cause Christians to self-censor their beliefs. Leftists will offer socialistic hope and reconciliation but it will never work and has never worked. Christianity offers true hope and reconciliation and that must be what we lovingly preach moving forward.
