John opens the show this week with a brief comment on how our Constitution is working exactly as it was meant to work. And in doing so, it is stymieing the plans of the Left, which is why you see the constant attacks on the Constitution.
We then transition to our first topic: abortion. Abortion is in the spotlight due to the recent Dobbs decision, but how is the Church dealing with it? We welcome Dr. David J. Ayers (faithandfreedom.com), Fellow for Marriage and Family at the Institute for Faith and Freedom. He looks at how the church has taught about abortion historically and how they deal with women who suffer from the aftereffects of it. He relays his own experiences in how the Church has handled the issue of abortion.
When we discuss the topic of totalitarianism, both in the past and happening now, it's important to take a step back and study what exactly totalitarianism is. Helping us do that this week is literature and history teacher Walker Larson (thehazelnut.substack.com). He describes the different stages of totalitarianism, based on what we've seen in history, and shows some pretty shocking similarities to society today. If you want to understand how raging at the Constitution can lead to tyranny, this is the interview to listen to.
Finally, we look at a blatant power grab on the globalist stage. The World Health Organization has been horrible when it comes to accurate medical information, but they are maneuvering for more power. Rounding out the show this week is Alex Newman (thenewamerican.com), CEO of Liberty Sentinel Media and Senior Editor at The New American magazine. He describes how the United Nations is attempting to give the WHO powers to declare pandemic emergencies in any country regardless of whether that country gives consent or not.
It's double guest Friday here on the podcast as we look at how the Left is trying to end run some recent SCOTUS rulings. First up today we have Craig Bannister (cnsnews.com), Blog Editor at CNS News. He looks at a story out of California where the state Attorney General is attempting to end run the SCOTUS decision in the New York conceal carry case. How? By issuing a completely subjective 'good moral character' standard.
Next, we go north to behind the Maple Curtain where Prime Minister Trudeau is just absolutely outraged about the overturn of Roe down here. Joining us to discuss this is David Cooke (campaignlifecoalition.com), National Campaigns Manager for Campaign Life Coalition in Toronto, Canada. What is Trudeau doing? He's proposing to deny tax exempt status to pregnancy crisis centers.
The topic of abortion has been thrust back into the spotlight after the recent Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade. But the topic of abortion in the Church has always been a difficult one. Joining us today to chat about it is Dr. David J. Ayers (faithandfreedom.com), Fellow for Marriage and Family at the Institute for Faith and Freedom. He and John tackle the question of how the church should teach about abortion. More women than you think in the church have had an abortion and most of them are afraid to mention it. Dr. Ayers relays his experience compassionately discussing the issue in the classroom and at church.
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.
Military service members are being denied religious exemptions for the Covid shots nearly across the board. Joining us today to discuss is Jay Richards (heritage.org), Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation. Is there an agenda to deny all religious exemptions, is it a hatred toward religion, or is it a purging of politically incorrect people from the military? Or is it all three? John and Jay also look at the religious argument over aborted fetal cells that are used in the shots. Military members are going to court over rejecting exemptions and precedent would indicate that they will win. Why? Because there is no Covid-19 exemption to the First Amendment – even in the military.
Once a month, John is a guest on KYMS, a local radio station here in the Inland Northwest, with Lee Lancaster to chat about current events and the martyred church. On today's podcast, John and Lee look at the threat Christianity poses to communist China and the measures China's government is taking to eradicate all opposition. They also discuss the growing pushback against mandates, both here and worldwide, and the avoidance by the Christian Church to wade into political or supposed controversial waters, too often falling into the social justice worldly camp instead. John also highlights the difference between persecution in the West and that in tyrannical countries.
With all the partisan bickering that seems to clog our national media these days, what are the things we really need to be concerned about? In this week’s boralogue, John […]
