Critical race theory and its toxic message is very much in the news but few people know the real impact that it's having. First up this week is Anna Miller (idahofreedom.org), Education Policy Director at the Idaho Freedom Foundation. She explains exactly what CRT looks like when it's implemented and it's worse than you think. In an Idaho school system, officials have introduced an equity toolkit to promote social justice and label students and teachers as inherently racist. This is the latest in a long line of totalitarian theories that have pushed into schools to indoctrinate children, but parents are beginning to wake up and push back.

Where power and money goes, trouble grows. And nowhere is there more power, money, and trouble than the U.S. government. We welcome back to the program this week Matt Welch (reason.com), Editor-at-Large at Reason Magazine. He focuses on the IRS and their current ploy to go after back accounts of U.S. citizens living abroad, which would include snooping on financial records. This would set a dangerous precedent. Governments could wield an immense amount of power and influence over anyone at any time.

Maybe the primary example of government trouble is the Council on Foreign Relations, which is celebrating their 100th anniversary this year. Rounding out the show this week is Bill Jasper (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American magazine. He chronicles the history of influence the CFR has had in the U.S. government, as well as universities, think tanks, and the media. If you look at the major crises over the past century, the CFR has had their hands all over most of them.

Where power and money goes, trouble grows. And nowhere is there more power, money, and trouble than the U.S. government. Back with us today is Matt Welch (reason.com), Editor-at-Large at Reason Magazine. Even though it has never worked, governments still try to tax their way into prosperity. The IRS is now going after back accounts of expats living abroad to counteract what is known as off-shoring one's money. But the offshoring exists because of the IRS's onerous tax practices. Part of this attempted money grab is snooping on financial records – which would set a dangerous precedent. Governments could snoop into your bank account and wield an immense amount of power and influence over anyone at any time.

The long rolling agenda to establish a New World Order has affected virtually every aspect of our lives, including education. In order to understand how we got to where we are, we need to recognize the history of this long rolling agenda. Back with us is long-time friend of the show, Dennis Cuddy, a historian and former Senior Associate at the Department of Education (newswithviews.com). He shows how educrats removed moral absolutes and Judeo-Christian values from schools and replaced them with leftist ideals and globalism.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..." We are all familiar with the words. But what did the founders mean by unalienable rights? Robert Curry (claremont.org), Board Member at the Claremont Institute, joins us to discuss the difference between alienable and unalienable rights and how the latter is under attack today. Common sense has been lost and in its place has emerged a post-truth ideology.

Finally this week, we attempt to look at free speech and journalism from a balanced, middle of the ground perspective with Matt Welch (reason.com), libertarian and Editor at Large at Reason Magazine. He looks at the difference between the cultural value and the legal value of free speech in society. He also goes over the history of journalism and how the media, an institution protected under the first amendment, has now come out against free speech.

In the constant battle for free speech between the left and the right in this country, very few people tackle the argument from the middle of the field. Joining us today is, as John calls him, the man in the middle of the row boat trying to stop it from toppling over. That man is Matt Welch (reason.com), Libertarian and Editor at Large at Reason Magazine. He looks at the state of free speech today and the difference between the cultural value and the legal value of free speech in society. He also covers the history of journalism and how media is now coming out against free speech in some areas. Will the war on our constitutional freedoms continue to get uglier?
