Given the policies that the current administration has put in place, it's not a shock that inflation is picking up. But some in government and the media are telling us it's not a problem. First up this week is Bruce Yandle (mercatus.org), Distinguished Adjunct Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. He draws on his previous experience at the top of the Federal Trade Commission to predict when our economic tipping point will be if we don't fix things now. He also shows us what a Bruce Yandle-led Federal Reserve would do to solve the problem.

The Democrat Party is the party in charge right now, causing this inflation. But prior to our last election, several political forecasters were betting the party would soon come to an end. Is that prediction still valid after the election? Bob Adelmann (thenewamerican.com), retired entrepreneur and conservative columnist, is here to answer that. He describes why the party would disappear in a few years and gives an early prediction as to how the 2022 midterm elections will turn out for both houses of Congress.

Finally this week, we take a look at why the catchphrase ‘Build Back Better' is an empty slogan that's actually accomplishing nothing. Joining us is Seton Motley (lessgovernment.org), Founder and President of the group Less Government. He looks at how everything fits together from our supply chain issues to China's rise after the fall of the Soviet Union to Chinese influence in our college education system. He finishes up weighing in on the future of pandemic-related issues in this country.

Before the 2020 election, many prognosticators were betting that the Democrat Party would soon come to an end, citing a variety of reasons. And then the election happened. Does the argument still hold up? Joining us today is Bob Adelmann (thenewamerican.com), retired entrepreneur and conservative columnist. He describes how several analysts, many of whom are democrats, are predicting that unless the focus of the party changes, it will disappear quickly. Why? Radicals are choosing to hyper-focus on issues that voters don't really care about. He goes on to give an early prediction of how many seats the democrats will lose next year in both houses of Congress and asks what republicans are going to do once they regain control.

When it comes to declaring sanctuary status, one side of the political aisle says one thing while the other side says the opposite – but it all depends on the issue. First up this week with an even-handed conversation is Jacob Sullum (reason.com), Senior Editor at Reason Magazine. He looks at the questions: what does sanctuary status mean? Should federal laws apply in states? If so, how would that work? Where have the courts stood on these issues? If the rules are good for one side, they should be just as good for the other. The trick is getting both sides to agree to abide by these rules.

It takes someone who grew up under communism to see what's truly happening to America today. Paul Dragu (thenewamerican.com), Communications Director for the John Birch Society, grew up in communist Romania and recognizes many facets from the Communist Manifesto playing out here right now. The Deep State has gradually and intentionally infiltrated academia and other institutions to enact their agenda. But after years of ignoring the warning signs, people are beginning to wake up.

To be called an Uncle Tom today if you're black has a connotation of negativity and of being a sellout. But for those who actually read the book, that doesn't make any sense. Our last guest this week is Derrick Wilburn (poccinterns.com), Founder and Executive Director of Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives. He discusses the essence of Uncle Tom, the man, as well as the book. The ignorance by those who use Uncle Tom as a slur is a product of the radical policies in today's schools that either teach untruths about history and literature or outright forbid teaching them altogether.

John finishes up today's show, analyzing the toxic phenomenon of Wokeism, the new American orthodoxy, a topic written by Larry Eubank in The New English Review.

Sometimes it takes someone who grew up under communism to see what's truly happening to this country right now. Paul Dragu (thenewamerican.com), Communications Director for the John Birch Society, grew up in communist Romania and recognizes many facets from the Communist Manifesto playing out in the U.S. today. He explains how the Deep State has gradually and intentionally infiltrated academia and other institutions to enact their agenda. But after years of ignoring the warning signs, people are beginning to wake up. He offers tips on how best to push back against this attempted takeover.
