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 now clear that the Hunter Biden laptop story was not Russian disinformation, despite politicos and the media claiming that it was. But the hypocrisy is only a symptom of a much larger problem. Joining us today 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 of keeping the nation safe. Will there be consequences for them? So far, the answer is no.

How does an ideological dustup at a Canadian school board meeting reflect what's going on around the world? Back with us today to answer that is Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine. She recalls how a difference in ideological opinion surrounding the Israel-Palestinian issue almost got a woman kicked off a school board for "Islamophobic" comments. She retained her position but this incident points to a larger problem of condoning anti-semitism in the name of diversity and inclusion. She also discusses the close relationship between BLM, Antifa, and pro-Palestinian groups.

Shaking the Fence

In Mark 11, Jesus asked the Pharisees to decide if the baptism of John was from heaven or from men. Instead of making a decision, they sat on the fence and claimed ignorance. Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca), Founder of Street Church Ministries in Alberta, Canada, spoke in our area recently and John caught up with him for an interview. Artur shows what the battle ahead will look like for Western civilization and what we must do to win. We must get off the fence and stand up to tyranny. We know what tyranny looks like from history so we should be able to recognize it now. Making that decision is scary, but with God on our side and an iron resolve, we can successfully make a stand and choose what side of the fence we want to be on.

If what is happening doesn't make sense, there must be another agenda afoot. And today, there are many things that don't make sense. Back with us this week is John Guandolo (understandingthethreat.com), Founder of Understanding the Threat. He maintains that many of these illogical events – like the disastrous pullout from Afghanistan – are intentional. Change agents come to town trying to distract you from the truth of what's happening but people are beginning to see through the charade and wake up. He shows us what we can do.

Finally this week we welcome to the show Joseph Puder (frontpagemag.com), columnist at FrontPage Magazine. He examines America's reputation in the world after the pullout from Afghanistan. Our allies around the world don't trust us and our enemies are more emboldened. Does that mean attacks on U.S. soil are imminent?

We have two guests for you today.  First up is Joseph Puder (frontpagemag.com), columnist at FrontPage Magazine.  He looks at how the world, as well as the jihadists in the Middle East, view the U.S. after the disastrous Afghanistan pullout.  Our enemies around the world are more emboldened and it could result in attacks on U.S. soil.

We then move to our second guest, Becky Dummermuth (firstliberty.org), counsel at First Liberty Institute.  She relates the story of two flight attendants who were fired for giving their opinions about their employer – opinions the employer asked for!  The company says the opinions were discriminatory; the flight attendants say the company violated their First Amendment and religious freedom rights.

We will forego the boralogue this week and jump right in with Christine Douglass-Williams (www.frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine, who describes her trip to the International Conference on Christian Persecution in Budapest, Hungary last month. She looks at Hungary's efforts to establish itself as a Christian nation and examines the truth, not the PC narrative, surrounding Islam and the persecution of not only Christians, but also reformer Muslims.

Anti-semitism exists in various subsets of society, including among famous people in the media. Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst at CAMERA, reveals how one famous radio host has seemingly come out against Jewish concerns. He also discusses the various sources for anti-semitism, both on the right and the left.

We finish out the program this week playing a sermon given by Rabbi Burt Yellin of the Messianic Jewish church Roeh Israel (www.roehisrael.org) in Denver, Colorado earlier this month. He gives examples of leaders who have done great things but were also absolute scoundrels. He also shows the importance of answering God's call in your life.

John's quote of the week:
"The real salvation in an age of postmodernism, when the lack of belief in truth has led to a lack of belief in the stability of all our systems and moral values, is always to stand on the truth. Remember 'semper veritas' – always the truth."

The Extras Segment is taking a two-week hiatus due to the holidays but it will return with perfect 2020 vision in the New Year!
