Now that we've passed the hubbub and noise surrounding the Kyle Rittenhouse trial and acquittal, it's time to take a few minutes and look back at some key issues. Joining us today for this retrospective is author and correspondent R. Cort Kirkwood (thenewamerican.com). He covers the facts of the case, the leftist mob influencing the prosecutors, and the media choosing to promote narratives instead of reporting facts. He even discusses similar issues surrounding the events of January 6. Truth is always important. The media isn't giving it to you, but we will here.
The Hunter Biden laptop story, published just prior to the 2020 election, was immediately denounced by mainstream media, removed from social media, and labeled as false by so-called fact checkers. Nearly a year later, the story turns out to be true. Joining us today to talk about it is Adam Guillette (aim.org), President of Accuracy in Media. He describes the typical media two-step: deny deny deny and then when the story is no longer politically relevant, fess up to the truth. According to the powers that be, a story isn't true until they want it to be. So if the media gets things wrong so often and is not trustworthy, why is Congress now ready to bail them out? It's one for the 'believe-it-or-not' files!
Recently, a Canadian tax court judge, who is Jewish, was barred from presiding over cases involving Muslims. Of course, he was labeled an Islamophobe, ignoring most of the facts surrounding the case. Back with us today is Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), writer at FrontPage Magazine and Jihad Watch. She gives a synopsis of the situation and connects what is happening with the judge to a larger narrative within the Canadian government. And surrounding it all is a media and political machine where talking points and so-called facts are actually flipped upside down. A blizzard of lies is being marketed as the truth.
Whenever you are faced with an enemy intent on destroying you and your way of life, it's important to understand their mindset in order to find the best way to defeat them.
Can we ever get a straight answer on climate change? Are there people keeping that from happening? Joining us today is Calvin Beisner (cornwallalliance.org), Founder and National Spokesman at the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation. The media's reaction to the new IPCC report is, as per usual with the media, not consistent with reality. Science, along with the funding of it, has been skewed due to political correctness but Cal gives us the truth behind the ‘97% of scientists agree' mantra as well as predictive modeling – it's not what it seems. Close to everything that goes into pushing the man-made climate change agenda is built on a house of cards that alarmists are trying to keep from toppling over.
It's a special weekend bonus podcast with Tamar Sternthal (camera.org), Director of the Israel office of CAMERA. More than 500 journalists signed an open letter recently calling for more pro-Palestinian coverage and less flattering reports about Israel. She discusses the letter and her organization's response to it. She points out how many of today's journalists have thrown the clearly-defined code of ethics in their profession out the window.
Sometimes genuine liberals follow the facts, have an awakening, and/or reject woke ideology. Only then can you have a real, substantive conversation. Joining us today for that real conversation is a genuine liberal, Neil Kiernan (v-radio.us), host of the V-Radio podcast. In an extended chat, he and John discuss the toxic nature of biased journalism, the best ways to reach people from the other side of the ideological aisle, and their individual experiences battling the globalist agenda. More and more people – on both sides – are getting sick of the craziness and moving to more rational and sane conversations.
What is the best way to eradicate critical race theory from our schools? The answer may surprise you. Rounding out our show this week is attorney and writer ME Boyd (missconstitution.com), known as Miss Constitution. After recounting the history of education before and after the 1962 decision to outlaw prayer in schools, she posits that CRT is a religion itself and should, based on precedent, be banned from education. It is far more coercive in its religious-like fervor to rid our schools of morality, honor, and faith and replace it with hatred and division. So it should be removed.
Today we bring you part 1 of a 2-part interview with Neil Kiernan (v-radio.us), host of the V-Radio podcast. He and John discuss the nature of biased journalism, namely how advocacy journalists inject emotion into pieces to keep people interested, but then people act on those emotions, making bad decisions. If we are to reach out to people on the other side of the ideological divide, we need to ignore hyperbolic slogans, be patient, and focus on listening and sticking to the facts. More and more people are sick of all the craziness and irrationality.
Join us tomorrow for part 2 of the interview. John and Neil have a more casual conversation as the recorder kept rolling after the interview was over.
A few weeks ago, former President Donald Trump filed a class action lawsuit against Google, Twitter, and Facebook for violating the free speech rights of millions of Americans. What's behind the lawsuit and what does it have to do with Section 230? Joining us today is May Davis (iwf.org), Visiting Fellow at the Independent Women's Forum. She discusses the publisher versus platform issue, how the lawsuit could succeed given precedent, and regardless of the outcome, the need to apply the rules evenly to everyone. The repercussions of Big Tech's censorship could reach farther than just who gets to speak on the internet – it could change the culture and founding principles of the country.
Back with us today for his semi-regular geopolitical update is Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He and John discuss a myriad of topics, including the Cuban protests and the failure of communism, Iran's campaign of kidnapping on foreign soil while the FBI focuses on so-called domestic terrorism, Ukraine-Russia relations of course, the latest on what China is up to, and the Washington Post's downfall from a real journalistic outfit to a blatant advocacy rag. They cover a lot of ground in a half hour.
