What are the top terror concerns for the United States? The Taliban? China? Iran? Well, according to the FBI, it's "domestic terrorists," which consists of anyone who disagrees with the official government narrative. Joining us today is Christopher Holton (centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Senior Analyst and Director of State Outreach at the Center for Security Policy. He looks at how the term 'white supremacist' has been used to label dissenters and to launch domestic terror task forces. This rings hollow, though, because how many white supremacists are on the FBI's Most Wanted List? Zero.
What is Israel's government like behind the scenes? Who better to reveal that than our old friend, author and Middle East expert Avi Lipkin (avilipkin.net). He joins us from his home east of Jerusalem for a candid conversation. He describes the new incoming government and why former Prime Minister Netanyahu's time in power ended. He also reveals that there is a surprising amount of socialists within the Israeli government and military in that country's version of a deep state. And you don't want to miss the story of Avi, a Jewish man, having dinner with a neo-Nazi and the lessons learned there! Never a dull moment when Avi's here.
Jam packed show this week. Whether we are entering the End Times or the Great Reset – or both – Christians need to be ready. First up this week is Jeff Kinley (jeffkinley.com), Founder of Main Things Ministries. He discusses the gradual reawakening of America's churches following months of lockdowns. Religious freedom has been threatened but some Christians are starting to fight back. Returning to meeting together and studying the Word will ground us in the Truth.
Liberation theology, social justice, and critical race theory have merged out of Marxism and have landed in Western schools. Next up this week is Steve Stotsky (camera.org), Senior Research Analyst at CAMERA. In order to combat moral-based Judeo-Christian education found throughout Western schools, educrat Marxists have pushed forward a distorted and narrative-driven curriculum. To push back, parents need to be more proactive, be more aware of what their children are learning, and not be afraid to make themselves heard.
The Founding Fathers created the Constitution with limited federal powers in mind. Eventually though, states' rights were usurped by a bigger, expanding government. Our last guest this week is Robert Curry (claremont.org), Member of the Board at the Claremont Institute. He takes a look at the plan to wrest control away from the states and into the federal government. This eventually eroded national sovereignty. That plan is almost complete … unless Americans learn the truth and put a stop to it.
John finishes up this week with a brief analysis of how media craft narratives. It's our job to recognize what they're doing and stand firm on the solid rock foundation of the truth.
We are told that we are divided and a no-good country. But a lot of times we see ourselves as exceptional compared to the rest of the world. Today, we welcome someone from across the Pond to analyze America's exceptionalism and the pros and cons that come with it. Joining us from France is Howard Burton (ideas-on-film.com), Founder and Creator of Ideas on Film. He points to America's stellar academic institutions and its share of intellectual experts in nearly every field as proof of its exceptionalism. He compares and contrasts the perceptions of America from people abroad with those who live here. Few people here think about their own country's exceptionalism and some Americans even think we're far from outstanding. It's important to know your strengths and weaknesses and do so in truth.
