Today we bring you the conclusion of our 2-part conversation with Evan Sayet (evansayet.com), author and former Hollywood liberal and insider. He continues his thoughts from yesterday, showing that because of the tactics of the woke crowd, many on the left are waking up and leaving. He shares some strategies on how best to talk to these folks. He also points out that the means of bringing the revolution to the world is different with each ideology, including the woke crowd. Finally, he explains why the virulent leftists have to ascribe the monikers of racist and Nazi to those with whom they disagree.
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.
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.
A pastor in Calgary, Alberta defied the authorities during a Passover service this year, telling them to leave, and calling them Nazis. Later, he and his brother were arrested. That pastor, Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca) joins us today. He is the Founder of Street Church Ministries in Calgary. He recaps his arrest and compares it to the tactics of the communist authorities he witnessed growing up in Poland. He came to Canada to escape totalitarianism and he fears that we are seeing it blossom here in the West now. Judaism and Christianity are being singled out while other religions are left alone. There is a spiritual battle taking place but a lot of churches don't seem willing to go to battle. They will need to if they are to survive.
Cancel culture is everywhere, even on college campuses, especially among the Jewish student community. Joining us today is Alyza Lewin (brandeiscenter.com), President of the Louis D. Brandeis Center, who starts things off by relating an amazing personal story of how her family escaped Nazi persecution in the 1940s when Poland became dangerous for Jews. She and John then move the conversation to anti-semitism today, specifically on U.S. campuses. She describes the persistent campaign against Max Price, a Jewish student at Tufts University, that highlights not only his troubles there but reveals a deep hatred for Israel among certain staff and students. There are efforts now to push back against this.
Many people are comparing the incident at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 to the Reichstag fire in Germany in 1933 and the removal of political rivals afterward. Joining us today to discuss is Luis Miguel (thenewamerican.com), writer and contributor at The New American magazine. Back then in Germany, the politicos consolidated their power and pushed their ideological will on the public. They enacted their agenda in place of the legislature. Are we seeing that begin to happen here?
