After much outrage over CRT, it seemed to have faded into obscurity. But news of a Missouri school district including questions in a math assignment related to sexual activity has raised questions about its return. First up this week, we welcome to the show Andrea Widburg (americanthinker.com), Deputy Editor at American Thinker. She looks at how this one example points to a much bigger problem: school curricula are still rife with woke lies about history along with vivid sexual depictions. Thankfully, most parents – and even a few on the left – are not fooled and are beginning to see the truth. Is wokus pokus in schools finally being drowned out by the truth?

Many in younger generations today rely on Google to look up the truth about history or other issues. The problem with that is: how do you know what you're finding is actually true? John flies solo in this segment, examining how much of what Google purports to be fact is often taken out of context. You need to understand facts in context in order to understand why people behave the way they do. Knowing human nature and applying it to history gives you a much clearer, fact-based look at our past, rather than the wokus pokus version we often see. This will help our children in schools as they wade through the waters of indoctrination.

Finally this week, we take a brief look at one of the latest political scandals: the Hunter Biden laptop. Joining us is Lloyd Billingsley (independent.org), Policy Fellow at the Independent Institute. He discusses the further downfall of the intelligence community after current and former IC members published a letter incorrectly denouncing the laptop story as disinformation. The CIA and FBI have become politicized for one side and while doing so have neglected their real job, which is keeping the nation safe.

It's important when studying history or looking up facts to understand the situation in context, otherwise everything gets clouded with judgment. John flies solo on today's podcast, recalling times where he was confronted with a problem and then drew upon conversations he had or books he read in the past in order to come up with a solution. When you Google facts, a lot of times the results are out of context. You need to understand facts in context in order to understand why people behave the way they do. Knowing human nature and applying it to history gives you a much clearer, fact-based look at our past, rather than the wokus-pokus version we often see. A good lesson for not only us but also our children.

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.

A large percentage of college students are being taught progressive ideology and, as a result, focus more on feelings and opinions than on facts and truth. Today, John catches up with Jason Hill (jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago, who interacts with students on a daily basis. If we look at not only education, but also politics and culture, it's really easy to become discouraged and think of the future as bleak. Is there hope? Professor Hill suggests that in order to counter progressives, the right needs to advocate for their principles rather than always being on defense. And he sees hope in university classrooms: more and more students today are waking up to the fact that something is wrong and maybe, just maybe, the truth is more important than feelings.
