There are many threats to the United States, but few are being examined thoroughly by those who could do something about them. Joining us today is David Pyne (emptaskforce.us), a Director with the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He and John discuss a variety of sobering topics including our missile defense system, how we would fare should China or Russia attack us, and why power companies strongly resist hardening the grid against a possible future EMP attack. When confronting a problem, it always helps to know the reality of the situation, otherwise you have virtually no shot at succeeding.
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.
Happy Independence weekend everyone! It's important to learn the truthful history of our country, but the prevailing leftist narrative today is that because some of our Founding Fathers were slave owners, any good that they accomplished is forgotten. First up on this holiday show is Bill Federer (americanminute.com), President of AmeriSearch, Inc. He gives an accurate account of the history of slavery in America: who held slaves, who initiated the abolitionist movement, and where the two political parties have stood on the issue throughout the years. The narrative is that the U.S. is irredeemable because of our history with slavery. What is often ignored is that we also got rid of it.
Much of the immigration debate today is centered around our southern border, but with the current administration's proposed policies, should the focus be elsewhere? We welcome back former U.S. immigration Senior Special Agent Michael Cutler (michaelcutler.net) to the program. He asserts that because thousands of people are entering our country and then are bused away from the border, the U.S. needs to beef up interior enforcement. A majority of the time, there are no interviews and no investigations done, which means random U.S. cities are seeing a sudden spike of new un-vetted residents.
Finally this week, we look at the intriguing possibility of a constitutional crisis should these election audits prove President Trump actually won the election. Rounding out the show is retired engineer John Green, who examines the Supreme Court's role in election integrity prior to and after November 3. Because they refused to hear a case that could have cleared up some questions right after the election, SCOTUS could soon be in the unenviable position of determining if President Biden is really the President. A constitutional crisis may be looming in the coming months.
A lot of focus on immigration security surrounds the border with Mexico, but with the current administration's proposed policies, should the focus be elsewhere? Back with us after a long hiatus is former U.S. immigration Senior Special Agent Michael Cutler (michaelcutler.net). Many people are being let through the border now, few with any interview or investigation, and are then bused off to parts of the country's interior. Mr. Cutler looks at the need to beef up interior enforcement. He also explains how these new policies could lead to even more people coming across the border through family petitions. But with no investigation, fraud and even worse crimes could increase.
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.
