China is widely considered to be our greatest geopolitical enemy, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they have infiltrated our country in multiple areas, one of which is education. Researcher and writer Kelleigh Nelson is with us today to give a background of how Marxism has slowly permeated our schools and has given rise to Confucius Institutes at many of our universities. These institutes have produced spies within our country and are paving the way for even more socialist indoctrination in education. And sadly, the universities are allowing it to happen.
What exactly is behind the critical race theory ideology? John Murawski, an award-winning journalist who writes for RealClear Investigations, joins us to play devil’s advocate and point out the thinking behind both sides of the issue. The values our country has always upheld – hard work, individualism, etc. – are looked at as systems of oppression by those who espouse critical race theory. Ultimately, the problem is there’s no shared vocabulary and no shared system of values between the two sides and that’s what makes things so unstable.
The climate changers and environmentalists are always advocating for green energy but do they really understand the consequences? Here to discuss is environmental consultant Steve Milloy, founder and publisher of JunkScience.com. He looks at the realities of eliminating fossil fuels and going with green energy. We have to be smart about how we approach this and think of the consequences before moving forward. Sound environmentalism has to be based on sound science and sound economics.
Finally this week, we welcome Brian Kennedy (presentdangerchina.org), Chairman of the Committee on the Present Danger: China with the Center for Security Policy. He examines how China wants to remake the world economic order and they want to be on top of it. They are also beefing up their military and technology sectors. The most successful defense against China is for America to be united in its recognition of China as a threat.
We all know the answer to this question: has socialism ever worked in the history of it being tried? Author and historian Bill Federer (www.americanminute.com) joins us for part 1 of a two-part series on the ravages of socialism. He takes us on a whirlwind tour of historical references in literature of perfect, utopic places, but even in those examples it never seems to turn out well. The Pilgrims put this into practice when they arrived here in 1620, but it too failed, forcing them to abandon it in favor of private property.
Bill discusses the transition in society from a covenant based on God to contracts where God was replaced by the State. The French Revolutionists wanted a society without God but it failed. Many church leaders today claim that the Bible advocates for socialism, but Bill gives several examples refuting that.
How did we get to the point where this country is as incredibly divided as we are today? There are two sides coming from two completely different worldview foundations – traditional values vs socialism. In today's boralogue, John looks at the progressive changes in our education system over the past century that have led to the deep division we see today. Religion, patriotism, capitalism, private property, and sovereignty have been removed from education, replaced by socialism and globalism. Children who have been exposed to this now hold on to one worldview foundation, warring against those who champion traditional values. Our education system has been poisoned and a divisive America is the result.
We hit the ground running this week with author and columnist Diane West (www.dianawest.net), who shows how the Marxist plan to destroy America goes back a century and the plan itself has been in plain sight the whole time. It is being enacted by the Deep State, whose actors have plotted to take down President Trump, and by Big Tech, who censoring information online and curtailing free speech.
Blatant election fraud just occurred in Belarus and the shock waves have radiated from Minsk all the way to Moscow. Defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson (www.thebulwark.com), is back with us from Kiev, Ukraine to look at Vladimir Putin's next move, the geopolitics of Eastern Europe, the U.S.'s involvement, and how China could benefit from the chaos.
What happens when a false narrative falls apart? In this week's boralogue, John looks at the three stages of a collapsing narrative, from explaining away of inconsistencies to shutting people up through censorship. Those of us who know the truth must then use our freedom of speech to counter with facts. Finally, when they've been caught with their hand in the cookie jar, they simply redesign the cookie jar by claiming they were always for the now evident truth and hope that no one notices. Moving on, not repentance, is the way of politics it seems.
Finally, we welcome back to the program conservative columnist Dr. Brian Joondeph (www.retinacolorado.com), who gives his theory on why the push for mail-in balloting is growing, and how the election will go in November, including references to the 20th amendment, a vote counting debacle, and potential legal battles.
We play the full discussion John had recently with Lee Lancaster at a local North Idaho radio station, KYMS.
Wake up, America! Radical Progressives are organizing for a transformation of Western society on all levels. This Marxist infiltration won't stop at the doors of your homes and churches. John and Lee discuss how these revolutions have always oppressed anyone who gets in their way, even their own 'true believers'. What are the costs required to stand up to this onslaught and is there any hope in sight?
Why are we losing 60 to 80 percent of the youth in churches today? How has postmodernism, and Marxism subverted the minds of this generation? Veteran broadcast journalist and […]
You have to ask critical questions in order to cut through the noise and get to the bottom of any issue. In this week's boralogue, John looks at several news stories – protests in Ecuador, global warming outrage, calling out hate speech – and asks the critical question in each instance. Once you know what to watch for, getting at the real issue underneath the noise is easy. It's also essential.
The Amazon Synod is underway in Rome but what is it exactly? Dr. Matthew Bunson (www.ncregister.com), Faculty Chair at Catholic Distance University, joins us to explain the different issues expected to be discussed at the Synod as well as the possibility of certain Catholic traditions being altered.
A Christian high school student was told to either recite the Islamic conversion creed for her history class or receive a failing grade. Richard Thompson (www.thomasmore.org), President and Chief Legal Counsel for Thomas More Law Center, discusses the ensuing legal case against the school and points out the double standard behind allowing Islam in schools but not Christianity.
Collectivism has invaded the classroom in the form of socialist-themed textbooks. Dr. Ileana Johnson (www.ileanajohnson.com), speaker and freelance writer at Canadian Free Press, examines how socialists have infiltrated our education system and shows how history is being revised in America's schools away from a fact-based curriculum and toward a more globalist feelings-based narrative.
Has Google cornered the online search market? Is Facebook an internet commons or is it a platform? Michael Busler (www.stockton.edu), Professor of Finance at Stockton University, dives into these questions and asserts that since Google has a stranglehold on online searches, they are able to influence us in retail spaces and even possibly in the voting booth.
John's quote of the week:
"Here's the killer question: who gets to determine what is and what is not hate speech or disinformation? They inevitably say that it will be a consortium of 'experts' or those who supposedly do fact checking. But the real answer you cannot get. And that's why you never ever want to prevent free speech. It's totalitarians who are always trying to muzzle free speech – unless of course it's their speech."
In this week's Extras segment, we play John's boralogue, an interview with Art Crino, and a part of a speech John gave at a Steeling the Mind conference - all from the August 13, 2011 episode of Steel. Marxism, Saul Alinsky, and radical changes in America are all discussed.
