It seems the mainstream media has been a propaganda machine for some time now, but 2021 turned out to be a big year for lies. Back with us today is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He looks at some of the biggest media lies of 2021, including talking points like ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated,' ‘January 6 was an insurrection,' and ‘traditional energy caused the Texas winter power grid collapse.' He also looks at some issues we'll face this year and what lies to watch out for moving forward.
Narratives are beginning to fail and what were once considered conspiracy theories by those in government and the media are now emerging as facts. First up this week, we look at our armed forces. Jay Richards (heritage.org), Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, joins us to examine the widespread rejection of religious exemptions for Covid shots in the military. Is there a hatred of religion or are they trying to purge politically incorrect men and women from our armed services? Whatever the case, our military members are fighting back in court. There is no Covid-19 exemption to the First Amendment.
Another failed narrative from the media is the insistence that January 6 was an insurrection. Even the FBI has rejected that. An independent journalist present at the U.S. Capitol a year ago recorded the event on his video camera. That journalist, Steve Baker (thepragmaticconstitutionalist.com), is with us this week. He recounts what he saw that day and how nine months later, federal authorities are charging him with a number of crimes. The purveyors of narrative never like it when anyone challenges them.
Finally, we travel north of the border to look at Canada and the failing narrative of diversity and inclusion – by those who practice neither. Rounding out the show this week 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. This points to a larger problem of condoning anti-semitism in the name of diversity and inclusion.
An independent journalist present at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, recorded the event on his video camera. Now, he's being charged by the federal government with a number of crimes, not the least of which is racketeering. That journalist, Steve Baker (thepragmaticconstitutionalist.com), is with us today. He recounts what he saw just over a year ago and discusses what the government is doing to him now and why – they don't like what he has to say about January 6 nor his footage of that day. He also discusses those who have been incarcerated and held for the past year with no trial.
Language is essential in every culture but the misuse of language has become legion in the media and has at times crossed over to being dangerous. Joining us today is Anne-Christine Hoff (jarvis.edu), Lead Professor of English, Speech, and Spanish at Jarvis Christian College. She looks at how ridiculous language has become and how its misuse deceives people and furthers agendas. Was there an insurrection? No, the ‘insurrectionists' had no weapons. Is it genocide to question a narrative? No, it's just a difference of opinion. It turns out that if you're going to fundamentally transform society, you need to manipulate language to fit your agenda and absolutely allow no criticism in the process.
Are we headed toward Gerald Ford 2.0? Also, why are criminals getting off with a slap on the wrist while right-leaning folks are being prosecuted to the hilt? Joining us today is Pat Nolan, Founder of the Nolan Center for Justice at the American Conservative Union Foundation. He goes into the history of how Gerald Ford became president and how similar events may unfold soon in this administration. He then shares some of his experiences dealing with the FBI and prosecutors. There are underhanded tactics used by social justice warriors in state attorneys offices and law enforcement to take down their political opponents.
Now that we've passed the hubbub and noise surrounding the Kyle Rittenhouse trial and acquittal, it's time to take a few minutes and look back at some key issues. Joining us today for this retrospective is author and correspondent R. Cort Kirkwood (thenewamerican.com). He covers the facts of the case, the leftist mob influencing the prosecutors, and the media choosing to promote narratives instead of reporting facts. He even discusses similar issues surrounding the events of January 6. Truth is always important. The media isn't giving it to you, but we will here.
Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum, convened a meeting this month to create the Great Narrative. He said it, "will be a powerful catalyst to shape the contours of a more prosperous and inclusive future for humanity." Joining us to analyze this is Pat Wood (technocracy.news), President of Citizens for Free Speech and founder of Technocracy News. He looks not only at the Great Narrative, but also at the new globalist definition of biodiversity – one that includes mapping the genetic makeup of all species, including humans, on earth. He calls it scientific humanism. For the globalists, it's more shaping of the contours of humanity's future.
Karl Marx's ideology has influenced communism and the global elite's plans for nearly a century. How did we go from Marx to CRT? To answer that, we welcome back investigative journalist James Simpson (crisisnow.net). He discusses how Marxism has infiltrated the West, attempting to divide and subvert our culture. CRT and white privilege are just the modern day mechanisms they use to accomplish their plans. He shares some ideas on how to fight against these efforts. John then looks briefly at the Book of Revelation, today's globalist push, and whether we are in the End Times.
Wrapping up the show this week, we step back and look at the past year since the 2020 election and the attempts to determine if there was fraud. Joining us is Annalisa Pesek (thenewamerican.com), writer and editor at the New American Magazine. She examines the Maricopa County audit results and the push for election reform – against the wishes of some officials and mainstream media pundits. But some folks are waking up to the need for reform. As John says, if there's nothing to hide, why try so hard to hide nothing?
We just passed the one year anniversary of what many people see as the subversion of our national election. What has happened in the last 12 months in uncovering the fraud? Joining us today is Annalisa Pesek (thenewamerican.com), writer and editor at the New American Magazine. She examines the Maricopa County audit results and the need – despite officials and the media strenuously disagreeing – for reform and a stop to election fraud. People and even a few government officials are waking up to the need for reform. But too many on the Left and in the media are not. It raises the question: if there’s nothing to hide, why try so hard to hide nothing?
Truth has been sacrificed on the altar of political narrative in just about every topic in news stories today. John and Producer Steve discuss how the truth has been left behind in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, in the recent climate change conference, and in the ongoing saga with the pandemic and the vaccines. There's even an indictment regarding the fake Russian dossier that no one in the media seems to care about. Narrative trumps everything else. If someone really wants to know the truth in any situation, the mainstream media, politicians, and social media sites are not the sources to go to.
How has Karl Marx influenced the modern day far leftist progressive? To answer that, we welcome back investigative journalist and former economist with the White House Office of Management and Budget, James Simpson (crisisnow.net). The communism of Karl Marx infiltrated America and the West largely through the Frankfurt School, attempting to divide and subvert our culture. What we're seeing in 'white privilege' and critical race theory today are just the modern mechanisms to accomplish their plan. People are beginning to see what's happening but it seems like an uphill battle. Mr. Simpson shares some ideas on how to fight against it.
John finishes up today's podcast with a look at the Book of Revelation, the Four Horsemen, and today's globalist push. Are we indeed in the End Times? If so, what is our role as Christians?
