If narratives coming out of the media seem wildly inconsistent and are flopping around, there's a reason for that. John opens the show this week looking at the outrage and "flippage" seen in stories about both gun control following recent shootings and Nancy Pelosi being denied communion because of her stance on abortion. The media pound away at a narrative, bury facts, and distort the truth in order to shape public perception on a story. That erosion of truth infects people's minds and that's reflected at the polls. It's dangerous to the freedoms that are the foundation of our country.
Another example of the media distorting the truth to advance a narrative can be found in a story about a riot at a funeral in Israel. An Al Jazeera journalist was killed covering a story and at her funeral, violence broke out. Joining us to discuss is Tamar Sternthal (camera.org), Director of the Israel office of CAMERA. She highlights how different press agencies immediately pointed the finger at Israeli troops as the cause for the violence, purposefully overlooking Palestinian instigation – just to bash Israel.
Finally this week, we look at the declining state of public education in this country. Joining us is Dr. Diane Davis (oneroomschooltraining.com), founder of the One-Room Schoolhouse method of teaching. She describes the benefits of parents taking charge of their child's education and the advantages of teaching in a small classroom. If children can learn how to think, not what to think, perhaps public perception will not be influenced by the erosion of truth and the future of our country can be saved.
We recently chatted with Chaplain E. Ray Moore about the importance of a private, Christian education over what you get from public schools. A colleague of his has developed a method that allows parents to take control of their child's schooling, giving them the tools they need. Joining us today is the Founder of that method, known as the One-Room Schoolhouse method, Dr. Diane Davis (oneroomschooltraining.com). She describes the benefits of having a small classroom – yes, in one room – where children of several different grade levels gather to learn together. Her most important focus: that parents should be the ones in charge of what their children learn.
If you put your kids in secular, atheist, Marxist seminaries (aka public schools), don't be surprised when you get secular, atheist, Marxists out. What is the best alternative? First up this week, we welcome Chaplain E. Ray Moore (exodusmandate.org), Co-Founder of Frontline Ministries. He describes what his organization is doing to get children out of public education and into private, Christian schools. He reveals his opinions on vouchers, charter schools, and running for school boards. He also urges pastors to get off the sidelines and defend the truth and biblical education.
What would America's founding fathers say about the state of not only education, but our entire country today? Joining us is author Steven Rabb (thefoundersspeech.com), who just wrote a book describing how everything the founders warned us against is now happening. There is a constant end running of the Constitution by those in the swamp who strenuously fight against reform. This has resulted in the chaos we're now seeing. How do we stop it? Return to the founders' idea of what the United States should be.
Finally this week, we dive into the future of the world's economy. Will it be full of digital currency and the problems that come with it? Joining us to chat about that is Chris Brady (chrisbrady.com), Founder and CEO of Life Platform. He looks at the future of Bitcoin, the plans of the world's central banks and the inevitable rollout of debt to create digital currencies. He also examines the dangers of going with a digital currency, especially the tracking aspect and the programmability standards.
Referencing public schools, John has often said that if you put your kids in secular, atheist, Marxist seminaries, don't be surprised when you get secular, atheist, Marxists out. Joining us today is E. Ray Moore (exodusmandate.org), Co-Founder and Board President of Frontline Ministries. He describes what his organization is doing to get children out of public education and into private, Christian schools. He discusses the futility of running for school boards, the disadvantages of vouchers and charter schools, and the need for Christian schools to operate free from any government control – including funding. And pastors need to step up, defend the truth, and back biblical education.
Throughout all of history, governments have always tended toward corruption. It's human nature. It's also why our founding fathers created the government they did. Joining us today is author Steven Rabb (thefoundersspeech.com) to discuss how everything the founders warned us against is happening. He looks at the constant end running of the Constitution to prop up an ideology, the intense pushback by those in the swamp against attempts at reform, and the move away from public education into private or home schools. Our country is slipping precariously close to the edge of chaos: returning to the founders' idea of the U.S. is the best way to keep that from happening.
In order to fight back against an ideological enemy, you need to understand both how they think and how best to battle them. Joining us today is freelance writer Selwyn Duke (selywnduke.com), who looks at a school guidance counselor in Northern Idaho – a red state no less – who is trying to push transgender ideology on a student. He then uses that example in discussing the nature of morality and where both sides are coming from. Each side says their morality is best, so you have to rely on truth to move forward. And sometimes you have adopt the Left's Alinsky tactics to fight back against them.
It's difficult to fight against any enemy – whether it be a vast army or hordes of ideological Marxists slowly eroding the foundation of your country – if you don't know who you are as a society. America has lost what it means to be American. Opening up this week, we are joined by author and cryptography expert Paul Rosenberg (freemansperspective.com). He points out that America has lost its metanarrative. We used to build things, care about things. But today, our proud heritage of innovation and freedom has fallen victim to a Marxist enemy intent on destroying us. Can we fight back? Only if we remember who we are.
One way Marxists have eroded our national identity is by long marching through the institution of education. Parents must take back their children's education with a long march of their own. We welcome Joe Murray (joemurrayenterprises.com), attorney, teacher, and founder of Joe Murray Enterprises to the show. He discusses ways public education should change to allow students to think for themselves instead of being indoctrinated. There are realistic steps parents can take right now to start marching in the other direction.
John finishes out the show this week looking at the different stages of totalitarianism, using the Canadian government's tactics against the Freedom Convoy trucker protest as an example.
For the better part of a century, progressives have long marched through the institution of education and the results have been disastrous. It's time for parents to take back their child's education and begin a long march of their own. Joining us today is Joe Murray (joemurrayenterprises.com), attorney, teacher, and founder of Joe Murray Enterprises. He looks at ways parents can save public education by focusing on ridding curricula of social justice buzzwords and allowing children to think for themselves instead of being indoctrinated. There are realistic steps parents can take right now to start marching in the other direction.
Many of the narratives we see on the news day after day after day are starting to fracture and the truth is beginning to emerge. Opening the program this week, John takes a look at many of these collapsing false narratives, including public education is the best education, vaccines will keep you from getting and spreading covid, and lockdowns and mandates are proven successful. Cracks are forming among the public and within both political parties as to the verity of these narratives.
The Beijing Olympics are right around the corner, but doubts have emerged as to whether China should host the Games given the CCP's harsh persecution of religious groups. Joining us this week is a man who is daring to take on the CCP, Leon Lee (unsilencedmovie.com), director of a new movie, Unsilenced, about the persecution of Falun Gong members in China. He recounts the myriad of obstacles he faced making this movie, as well as the rise of Falun Gong and his earlier work exposing the forced organ transplant trade in China.
Rounding out the show this week, we look at another specific narrative that is collapsing – that of vaccines working with no significant adverse reactions. Joining us is Rebecca Terrell (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American magazine. She dubs the vaccine program as the biggest medical experiment in history and links it to the globalist push for worldwide depopulation. She also discusses adverse reactions as well as the efficacy of the vaccines versus other, more successful, medications.
We often talk about narratives on the show, usually the ones promulgated by the media and the left. Well, many of those narratives are now collapsing. John flies solo today, looking at a few of these failing stories, including: public education is far superior to charter schools, vaccines keep you from getting or spreading covid, and lockdowns and mandates work. The initiators of these now-exposed-as-lies narratives are swimming upstream to keep them relevant, but too many people – on both sides – are wising up. Cracks are beginning to form within both political parties and among those in the public. You can't keep the truth hidden forever – eventually it will break through.
