mandatory vaccines

There are many reasons we are so divided in this country. One reason stems from the lack of honest teaching of today's children. Leading off the program this week is Wesley Smith (discovery.org), Chair and Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute's Center on Human Exceptionalism. He looks at why we have such a hard time talking to people with opposing ideologies. It involves two sides coming at an issue with two different mindsets and two different groups of word definitions. But fundamentally each side has a different moral frame of reference that renders debate virtually impossible. Only when we recognize that the paradigm has changed will be able to try and bridge the divide.

Switching now to geopolitics, there is a lot going on in the world today that the media simply doesn't cover. Joining us this week is Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He discusses the geopolitics surrounding the Cuba protests, Iran's attempts to kidnap American citizens, Ukraine-Russia relations, and the latest on what China is up to. He also laments the downfall of journalism, specifically at the Washington Post.

Finally this week, John and Producer Steve sit down to tackle two interesting topics. First, the White House has now admitted to colluding with social media companies to flag what they deem to be misinformation about vaccines. And second, they explore the possible outcomes of the state election audits, including the questionable chances of President Trump retaking the White House should the audits prove he won and the media's near screeching coverage of what they call the "fraudits." If the election was legit, why are they so upset?

On today's podcast, John and Producer Steve tackle two interesting topics. First up, the White House Press Secretary announced last week that the Biden administration is working with social media companies to flag what they deem to be misinformation about vaccines. There is also collusion with text message carriers and their so-called fact checkers to "monitor closely" texts between private citizens. The second topic involves the Arizona election audit and the media frenzy surrounding it. They also look at the unlikely scenario, should the audits be successful in showing that President Trump actually won the states in question, of his return to office in the very near future. If it's so unlikely, why are the media so upset?

Critical race theory has taken hold in education, but now that it has been roundly rejected by a majority of the people, teachers unions and educrats are running away from it. First up on the show this week is Lindsey Curnutte (heritageaction.com), Press Secretary for Heritage Action for America. She looks at how the NEA seems to be washing their hands of CRT, erasing it completely from their website. She also promotes Heritage's new e-book on how to combat critical race theory, which you can find at crtbook.com.

Because of CRT and the many other Marxist theories that have been taught to children for decades, many of today's youth don't want to debate and don't seem capable of understanding history as it actually was. Anne-Christine Hoff (jarvis.edu), Professor of English at Jarvis Christian College in Texas, joins us. She discusses how ideological youth make claims they can't back up or defend and then call you a racist if you disagree with them. That is classic Marxism. She also looks at how many Christian universities haven't stepped up to address these issues.

This toxic ideology has spilled out of universities onto the street as our next guest can attest. Back with us is longtime friend of the show Dexter Van Zile (camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA. He describes the horrible treatment he endured during a Students for Palestine rally at a university campus in Boston. There's a degradation of civility in the U.S. and a significant part of that is aimed at Jews and supporters of Israel. That campaign is in part a result of untrue narratives being perpetuated throughout the education system.

We wrap up today's show with Tara Ross (saveourstates.com), Advisor at the group Save Our States. She examines the checks and balances that keep absolute power from any one branch of government, focusing on the For the People Act, which has been shot down for now but will not go away. She also looks at 2020 election-related procedures that did not go through proper channels and egregious overreach by governors during the pandemic.

Despite constant promotion for and adoption of critical race theory policies, teachers unions are now publicly washing their hands of the theory. Any mention of CRT has been erased from the NEA website. Lindsey Curnutte (heritageaction.com), Press Secretary for Heritage Action for America, joins us today to talk about it and to promote Heritage's new e-book on how to combat critical race theory, which you can find at crtbook.com. Now that parents are waking up to the dangers of CRT, they need to stay awake and stay diligent.
