Ezra Levant, head of Canadian conservative news outlet Rebel News, has reported that the Trudeau administration may soon require journalists in Canada to obtain a license if they want to keep doing business. Back with us to report on this is freelance writer and software engineer Michael Tennant (thenewamerican.com). It's not yet illegal to report on stories without a license in Canada, but you don't receive subsidies and/or preferential treatment unless you have one. And with the government issuing these licenses, it's pretty clear which journalists will end up receiving them. Producer Steve finishes things out today playing some clips from Ezra Levant himself describing his experience.
John and Producer Steve sit down to chat about a variety of topics today, including the absolute failure, despite the left's best efforts, of the climate change narrative, as well as the media's failure to report actual news, instead replacing it with anonymous sources and faulty fact checking. They also discuss America's role as the world's policeman and whether that will continue or should continue – and if it doesn't, who steps in to fill that void?
Narratives can be a tricky thing and for the globalists, they use narratives to convince the public that their gradual stranglehold on control is acceptable. Climate change had been their vehicle for some time but it has been supplanted by Covid in the last two years. Are we seeing a transition back to climate change now that Covid is beginning to fade?
First up this week, Dennis Cuddy joins John and Producer Steve to look at how the various narratives about Covid are falling apart. They discuss all the controversial Covid issues, including the lab-based origins of the virus, gain of function research, adverse vaccine reactions, and even DARPA's involvement. Now that the truth is coming out, thanks to Dr. Cuddy and others, the globalists are scrambling to find another narrative to try and maintain control.
It turns out that transitioning away from the Covid narrative was easy for the globalists – all they had to do was turn to an old favorite, climate change. Joining us is Wesley Smith (humanexceptionalism.center), Director of the Discovery Institute's Center on Human Exceptionalism. We are now being told that climate change should be seen as a health emergency, which would allow for the retention of tyrannical covid policies.
Covid will end, but climate change can be with us for as long as is needed. Our rights would be suspended, and the globalists would be able to achieve what they tried to with Covid. To fight back, we need to expose the truth, which like sunlight, is the best disinfectant.
Many of the narratives we see on the news day after day after day are starting to fracture and the truth is beginning to emerge. Opening the program this week, John takes a look at many of these collapsing false narratives, including public education is the best education, vaccines will keep you from getting and spreading covid, and lockdowns and mandates are proven successful. Cracks are forming among the public and within both political parties as to the verity of these narratives.
The Beijing Olympics are right around the corner, but doubts have emerged as to whether China should host the Games given the CCP's harsh persecution of religious groups. Joining us this week is a man who is daring to take on the CCP, Leon Lee (unsilencedmovie.com), director of a new movie, Unsilenced, about the persecution of Falun Gong members in China. He recounts the myriad of obstacles he faced making this movie, as well as the rise of Falun Gong and his earlier work exposing the forced organ transplant trade in China.
Rounding out the show this week, we look at another specific narrative that is collapsing – that of vaccines working with no significant adverse reactions. Joining us is Rebecca Terrell (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American magazine. She dubs the vaccine program as the biggest medical experiment in history and links it to the globalist push for worldwide depopulation. She also discusses adverse reactions as well as the efficacy of the vaccines versus other, more successful, medications.
We often talk about narratives on the show, usually the ones promulgated by the media and the left. Well, many of those narratives are now collapsing. John flies solo today, looking at a few of these failing stories, including: public education is far superior to charter schools, vaccines keep you from getting or spreading covid, and lockdowns and mandates work. The initiators of these now-exposed-as-lies narratives are swimming upstream to keep them relevant, but too many people – on both sides – are wising up. Cracks are beginning to form within both political parties and among those in the public. You can't keep the truth hidden forever – eventually it will break through.
The news is filled with Covid-19 chaos, but is there a bigger plan afoot behind the scenes? Back with us today is longtime friend and guest of the show, Dennis Cuddy, who joins John and Steve for a Covid roundtable. They discuss all the hot and controversial topics today, including the lab-based origins of the virus, gain of function research, the Event 201 wargame just prior to Covid's release, and the banning of therapeutics in favor of vaccines. They also look at adverse vaccine reactions, possible future viruses unleashed, and DARPA's involvement in this whole thing. Amidst all of these Covid-related topics, it's ultimately all about globalists taking advantage of a crisis to gain control over the masses.
Last year turned out to be a banner year for mainstream media misinformation. They seemed so sure of their stories when published, but when facts came out, very few if any admitted they were wrong. Leading off the show this week is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He looks back at media lowlights in 2021, including talking points like 'pandemic of the unvaccinated,' 'January 6 was an insurrection,' and 'alternative energies didn't cause Texas's winter grid collapse.' Headlines were in large fonts; corrections, if any, were but a tiny footnote.
Unaccountable media occurs not just in the U.S., but also in international press. Nowhere is this more evident than in coverage of Israel. Tamar Sternthal (camera.org), Director of CAMERA's Israel office, joins us this week to look at two stories the media got wrong in 2021. First, Israel was made out to be the aggressor toward Gaza when the facts show that Gaza attacked initially. The second story involved a professor with ties to Hamas promoted as a bridge builder when in reality he taught his students to hate Israel. Once again, neither publisher was held to much account.
Finally this week, we dive into the topic of digital vaccine passports with longtime friend of the show Pat Wood (citizensforfreespeech.org), Executive Director of Citizens for Free Speech and Editor of Technocracy News. He examines the globalist plan to track every human being on earth, using governments and private companies and organizations to get it done. This plan has been in place for decades and with technology finally in place, the globalists are on the cusp of realizing their dream. John notes that this dream looks suspiciously like one written in the Book of Revelation.
The JCPOA, known informally as the Iran Nuclear Deal, is close to being resurrected and there are many myths propagated by the media surrounding that deal that just aren't true. Joining us today is Sean Durns (camera.org), Senior Research Analyst in CAMERA's Washington DC office. He looks at some of these myths, including that Israel is on board with resurrecting the Deal and the Trump administration cozied up to hardliners in Tehran – both of which are false. The media glosses over the truth to promote narratives but the devil is always in the details.
We all know that the mainstream media has devolved into a propaganda machine for the Left. They have now been exposed promoting anti-Israel 'news.' Joining us today from Israel is Tamar Sternthal (camera.org), Director of CAMERA's Israel office. She gives examples of media malfeasance, including the promotion of Israel as aggressor against Gaza when Gaza was the attacker first; and a feature of a professor with ties to Hamas as being a bridge builder when, if you listen to his lectures in Arabic, he is the exact opposite, teaching his students to hate Israel. She and John also discuss the state of journalism today.
Narratives are beginning to fail and what were once considered conspiracy theories by those in government and the media are now emerging as facts. First up this week, we look at our armed forces. Jay Richards (heritage.org), Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, joins us to examine the widespread rejection of religious exemptions for Covid shots in the military. Is there a hatred of religion or are they trying to purge politically incorrect men and women from our armed services? Whatever the case, our military members are fighting back in court. There is no Covid-19 exemption to the First Amendment.
Another failed narrative from the media is the insistence that January 6 was an insurrection. Even the FBI has rejected that. An independent journalist present at the U.S. Capitol a year ago recorded the event on his video camera. That journalist, Steve Baker (thepragmaticconstitutionalist.com), is with us this week. He recounts what he saw that day and how nine months later, federal authorities are charging him with a number of crimes. The purveyors of narrative never like it when anyone challenges them.
Finally, we travel north of the border to look at Canada and the failing narrative of diversity and inclusion – by those who practice neither. Rounding out the show this week is Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine. She recalls how a difference in ideological opinion surrounding the Israel-Palestinian issue almost got a woman kicked off a school board for “Islamophobic” comments. This points to a larger problem of condoning anti-semitism in the name of diversity and inclusion.
