It's time for John's monthly foray in the interviewee chair as he joins Lee Lancaster at the KYMS studios. John and Lee discuss high gas prices and the false messaging surrounding it as well as the faltering worldwide economy. They examine how geopolitical events like these affect the martyred church around the world. John reports on persecuted Christians in Pakistan and Nigeria and points out that freedom in this country is not the norm of history – unfortunately slavery and persecution is.
In order for globalists to enact total control through the Great Reset, they need to plan each step accordingly. Leading off the show this week is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He studies the logical progression of that plan, looking at inflation, universal basic income, price controls, digital currencies, and more. The way to fight back against this plan is to create a parallel society and populate it with analogous businesses. Elites know that, so they retaliate with step one of their plan: boosting inflation. Given our current situation, it would appear that the plan has begun.
What is it really like on the ground in Ukraine? We are joined once again by Reuben Johnson, who has escaped his adopted war-torn country and is back in the United States. He reviews the treatment he received at the hands of the Russians and shares several stories of atrocities committed by Russian soldiers since the war began. He also describes how Putin's military efforts are weakening and gives his thoughts about what needs to happen going forward.
If this isn't the End Times, it's one heck of a dress rehearsal. Finishing out the program this week to discuss the religious aspect of current events is Dr. J.B. Hixson (notbyworks.org), President of Not By Works Ministries. He looks at a key indicator that the End Times period is near: the constant attempts by globalists to form a one-world government. He also discusses elements of his new book, including how covid, the vaccines, and the 2020 election are all related to furthering the globalist plan.
Politicos have mismanaged our economy for years leading us to the paradigm shift we're experiencing today. Now they're trying to offload responsibility but also use this mess to continue their agenda. John opens the program this week continuing his analysis of how we got here. He reviews what President Trump did to repair our economy and how President Biden has undone all of that. The world runs on oil, but there are forces – namely the climate alarmists – that have always advocated for getting us off of oil by taxing it, thereby hurting the poor and middle class. They and the politicos have slowly enacted their plans over the years, leading us to where we are today.
People are beginning to awaken from their slumber when it comes to these plans. The emperor is quickly disrobing and all the cards are now on the table. Joining us today is Christopher Bedford (rightforge.com), Chief Communications Officer at RightForge. Globalists are using our current crises to accelerate their Great Reset plans, but as they do, average everyday folks are waking up. Issues and relationships once thought unimportant are suddenly found to be vital. There's a battle brewing between the resetters and the reformers as we race into an unknown future.
There has been a new set of sanctions against the Russian government for their role in Ukraine. But could there be unforeseen consequences to these new sanctions? With us to discuss is Tho Bishop (mises.org), Assistant Editor of the Mises Wire at the Mises Institute. He shows how politicians are largely ignorant about economics, putting politics over sound policy. He also looks at the very real possibility that the sanctions process being used against Putin right now may soon be used against ‘domestic terrorists' in America.
We finish this week's program with an incredible update from our correspondent in Ukraine, Reuben Johnson. We had feared the worst after not hearing from him for weeks, but he's back and he tells us what he experienced trying to leave Ukraine and how the Russian soldiers feel about the war they're fighting.
Last week John gave a history as to how we arrived at our current state in the economy and with the dollar. Today, John continues that historical account, reviewing what President Trump did to repair our economy and how President Biden has undone all of that, causing us to be dependent on autocracies for oil and giving Russia economic advantages that the world would rather it not have. John points out the world runs on oil, but there are forces – namely the climate alarmists – that have always advocated for getting us off of oil by taxing it, thereby eroding our economy, hurting the poor and middle class, and lining their own pockets. They've slowly enacted their plan over the years, leading us to where we are today.
John has said that if this isn't the End Times, it's one heck of a dress rehearsal. Joining us today to discuss the religious aspect of current events is Dr. J.B. Hixon (notbyworks.org), President of Not By Works Ministries. We may be living in the last of the last days given a thorough examination of the times. He looks at the constant attempts by the globalists to form a one-world government – a key indicator that the End Times period is near. He also discusses elements of his new book: Spirit of the Antichrist, including how covid, the vaccines, and the 2020 election were all related around a plan to further many of the events happening right now.
There are two characteristics that are emerging on the global stage covering a panoply of issues. John flies solo to open the program this week, identifying these two issues as eroding confidence in our public officials and their tendency to enforce rules and regulations arbitrarily. He gives a few examples in the world economy where these issues are causing substantial erosion. He then goes on to give the history of the dollar as the world's reserve currency, describing the many sleights of hand used to manipulate and weaponize the dollar over the last 75 years. The result is the economic mess we find ourselves in today.
Cancel culture is pervasive today, not just in economics, but across all aspects of society. How did it get to this point and is there a way to stop it? Joining us today is Mark Bauerlein (firstthings.com), Senior Editor at First Things and Professor Emeritus of English at Emory University. He shows how the younger generations are learning this canceling behavior, both online and in schools, parlaying that on to college campuses and then into the workplace. Many Christian denominations have fallen prey to this as well. But if enough people stand up, call it out, and reject it, we can put a stop to it.
What is the advantage of an armed citizenry? Finishing out the program this week is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He looks at the advantage the U.S. has in having an armed citizenry, including the importance of the Second Amendment. No one has ever invaded America, most likely because we have millions of armed citizens. He also advocates for bringing back a well-regulated militia – a controversial idea to the left but an important one to discuss.
Most everyone can see that we are suffering from rising inflation and the possible endgame of the dollar as the world's reserve currency. How did it come to this? John flies solo today, looking at our economic situation. There are two underlying issues that cause most of our problems today, including those in the financial realm: eroding confidence in our public officials and their tendency to enforce (or choice not to enforce) rules and regulations arbitrarily. With those two things in mind, John recalls the history of the dollar as the world's reserve currency, from Bretton Woods in the 1940s to our current inflationary status today. He shows every step along the way and where we're likely to go from here.
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..
Extended conversation this week as John and Carol sit down with father and son economic experts Donald and David McAlvany (mcalvanyica.com). The foursome team up to tackle a variety of topics, including current financial trends, burgeoning inflation, the upcoming economic reset, and the rapid onset of in-your-face socialism. They also take a look at the theological and philosophical side of things, as well as the importance of strategic thinking and long-term planning, and the need for little people to do big things each and every day.
We finish up this week with Tammi Rossman-Benjamin (amchainitiative.org), Co-Founder and Director of the AMCHA Initiative. She describes her efforts to combat a bill in California that would force critical race theory into high school curricula. She focuses on the toxic antisemitic nature of CRT and how it doesn’t attempt to eradicate racism and hate – it perpetuates them.
