Throughout the past several decades, there has been a shift from teaching children how to think to teaching children what to think, and not really teaching a whole lot in that last category. Joining us today for an educational history lesson is teacher and author Jake Klyczek (schoolworldorder.info). He looks not only at the different Marxist attempts to indoctrinate children in the past half century, but also at the western society level, with erosion of sovereignty and the latest technological push to a social credit system. The time has come in every arena, especially churches, for people to wake up and resist this Marxist takeover.
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.
Critical race theory is saturating our education system in America. What is it and how does it affect students? Back with us today is Clare Lopez (ccnationalsecurity.org), Member of the Citizens Commission on National Security. She looks at what critical race theory is, what it realistically tells students, and how it is actually creating division and racism rather than attempting to stop it. Why would anyone perpetuate this type of narrative? Because there is a deeper, more nefarious plan afoot, to seize power and fundamentally transform society.
Producer Steve sneaks in after Clare and John are finished to briefly look at how critical race theory is not compatible with the Christian church.
Russia, Ukraine, and China are heating up geopolitically while the U.S. seems to be treading water. Who's in charge here? Defense expert Reuben Johnson is back with us this week from his vantage point in Kiev, Ukraine. He looks at the implications of Russia's military buildup on the border of his country as well as China's aerial aggression above Taiwan. He also analyzes Russia's tactics with the EU and NATO as well how they view the current U.S. administration. Critical question: can the Biden administration handle not only the many domestic issues it faces but also two super powers encroaching on other countries' lands? Not only do we know the answer to that question, but so does the world.
The U.S. seems to be clearly headed toward a totalitarian state. Can we stop it? Believe it or not, we can learn from the coup that ousted the Shah of Iran in 1979. Shahram Hadian (tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth in Love Ministry, joins us to give a history of what happened leading up to and during the 1979 revolution in Iran. Calls were made for free education and health care, media began favoring a particular side, and elections were rigged along with candidates and even outcomes. Sound familiar? Will we end up as Iran did or will we fight back and keep history from repeating itself.
John finishes up this week's program recommending that people ignore the silly pablum of the mainstream media and look at the reality of the world we live in. We need to recognize what's really going on, focus on it, and then formulate a plan of action on how to deal with it.
What can the United States learn from the coup that ousted the Shah of Iran in 1979? Who better to answer that than an Iranian-born, now U.S. citizen and Christian pastor? Shahram Hadian (tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth in Love Project, joins us today. He gives a history of what happened leading up to and during the 1979 revolution in Iran. Calls were made for free education and health care, media began favoring a particular side, and elections were rigged along with candidates and even the outcomes. After the revolution, those who advocated for it were found on the wrong side of power. We are seeing eerily similar events unfolding in the United States right now and it's not unfair to assume that we could end up in a similar place as Iran did post-revolution. That is, unless we push back against the madness and keep history from repeating itself.
The beautiful thing about our Constitution is that the freedoms afforded in it pertain to every person equally. But there's talk of forming a secular constitution. Joining us today is Jorge Gomez (firstliberty.org), Content Strategist and Writer for First Liberty Institute. He looks at the clause that isn't there – separation of church and state, as well as the freedom that is there – namely religious freedom in the First Amendment. Our Constitution stands for everyone, but under a secular constitution, the state is the ultimate power. Religious groups would then not receive fair and equal treatment, depending on who is in power. It's important to remember: if the state can grant the rights, the state can take the rights away.
How do globalists go about furthering their agenda? They have a long rolling plan that's easy to spot if you know what to look for. On today's podcast, John starts out the new year describing this long-rolling agenda and the ultimate goal of eroding sovereignty. The European Union has done this. Even the U.S. government has done this toward the states for the last century. It's a way to contain the debate and get people gradually used to the new markers that are set until the objective is met. John explains the plans of change agents who bring these agendas to your town. Whether it be the EU or the Marxists working in this country, they put gradual pressure on us until the pain of leaving their oppressive regime is greater than the pain of caving to their agenda.
Do you ever feel like sleepwalking toward a disaster in the near future? Former British Army Colonel Richard Kemp (www.richard-kemp.com) is with us from the United Kingdom to look at how Europe and the UK tend to appease their enemies rather than stand up to them. In the United States, President Trump is trying to stand up to enemies but constant negative coverage of his administration has caused most people in Europe to dislike him. Related to appeasement, cancel culture and political correctness have disallowed honest discussion of global problems.
Colonel Kemp discusses several topics including whether we are heading toward a crisis point, the geopolitics of Russia and China versus the U.S. and Europe, and how generations of students are not taught to question and debate – they are taught to shut down anything that isn't the accepted narrative.
A recent article in the American Mind on the upcoming leftist coup has set the political world on fire. The author of that article, Michael Anton (www.americanmind.org), Lecturer in Politics at Hillsdale University, is with us to discuss his thoughts. The Left will fight for this election no matter the outcome or the damage to the system and will blame whatever happens on President Trump. If they achieve power they believe they may never relinquish it.
Next up, John and Producer Steve sit down to try and make sense of the tactical lying coming from the media. Truth is being distorted and the recent article in The Atlantic trouncing the President for being disrespectful to our military is but one example.
John goes on to examine the choice we have this fall: freedom or socialism. He gives a brief analysis of why socialism has never worked in the history of the world.
Finally, in this week's boralogue, John looks at the Middle East peace process and analyzes why it hasn't worked up to this point. After years of Palestinian leadership refusing to negotiate, the new strategy is to apprehend reality and upend the status quo. This has brought about alliances no one could predict, but once the old paradigm assumptions were removed, it became obvious those alliances were actually needed.
We remember the 9/11 victims and their families who suffered 19 years ago when reality became all too real in New York, DC, Pennsylvania, and across America. Our prayers are with them.
