Most everyone knows that social media companies are censoring conservative output. There are a variety of ways this is done. Joining John today in what is always a fun and fascinating conversation is infrastructure expert Dr. Russ White (rule11.tech). He and John discuss a variety of topics, including machine-learning algorithms, the publisher vs platform debate, and the arbitrary allocation of posts as 'violent' or 'hate' speech. They even dive into the topic of pre-crime and the strange aspect of enforcing free speech – how exactly do you do that? Dr. White offers solutions that should be implemented to allow free expression across the board.
The slippery slope fallacy is the claim that a particular action will trigger a negative chain of events, positing as true a number of vaguely defined steps in between that draws out an emotional response. John leads off the show this week looking at a couple of slippery slope examples in the news today.
We then transition to the topic of fraud and how many people have claimed that there was plenty of it in the 2020 election. More than a year later, technology has uncovered a portion of that fraud, known as phantom voting. We welcome fraud detection expert Jay Valentine (contingencysales.com) to the show. He explains what phantom voting is, how sovereign fraud is corrupting the voting process, and reveals that certain groups were allowed real-time access to voting information the night of the election. This fraud must be reformed if the integrity of this country is to remain intact.
When the Biden administration shamefully pulled out of Afghanistan, Americans and equipment were left behind. But Afghan women, who had enjoyed a little freedom while U.S. troops were there, also became trapped after the pullout. Joining us today is Dr. John Barber (johnbarberbooks.com), Professor of Theology at Whitefield Theological Seminary. He is an expert on the plight of women in the Middle East and North Africa and shows us what life is like for women there. He also looks at ways Christians can help.
Finally, we dive into the free speech issue, especially where it concerns censorship by Big Tech elites in Silicon Valley. Freelance writer Michael Tennant (thenewamerican.com) wraps up the show this week discussing Section 230, search result manipulation, and the public-private workaround being perpetrated by the government and Big Tech.
Double feature on today's podcast. First up, we've seen the showdown coming for some time – Big Tech versus Free Speech. Will the Constitution's First Amendment protection survive or will Silicon Valley become the center for speech in the U.S.? Freelance writer Michael Tennant (thenewamerican.com) joins us today to tackle this issue. He and John look at Section 230, manipulation of search results, and the government's plan to use Big Tech firms to do what they cannot.
Next up is Lea Patterson (firstliberty.org), Counsel with First Liberty. She discusses the religious freedom case in Maine that was argued before the Supreme Court yesterday. Parents should not be excluded from providing their children with opportunities just because they choose to enroll them in a religious school.
A few weeks ago, former President Donald Trump filed a class action lawsuit against Google, Twitter, and Facebook for violating the free speech rights of millions of Americans. What's behind the lawsuit and what does it have to do with Section 230? Joining us today is May Davis (iwf.org), Visiting Fellow at the Independent Women's Forum. She discusses the publisher versus platform issue, how the lawsuit could succeed given precedent, and regardless of the outcome, the need to apply the rules evenly to everyone. The repercussions of Big Tech's censorship could reach farther than just who gets to speak on the internet – it could change the culture and founding principles of the country.
Is it really possible that the U.S. could see a social credit score like they have in China? Caught up in that question is the recent squabble between tech companies over data privacy. Back with us today to go over this topic is Russ White (rule11.tech), nationwide expert in network infrastructure architecture. Russ and John discuss who really has ownership of your personal data, the impacts of net neutrality, and the rampant partisan hypocrisy of the Big Tech companies. The ultimate question is: who controls what and what will our rights be? They also look at how from a technological perspective, most everything is in place for Biblical prophecies to come true. As John has said, if this isn't the End Times, then it's one heck of a dress rehearsal.
The takeover of this country is underway, but who are the players involved? Author and columnist Diana West (www.dianawest.net) is back with us, showing how the Marxist plan to destroy America goes back a century and the plan itself has been in plain sight the whole time. Many of the markers in moving this revolution forward have been reached already.
Diana discusses the Deep State actors who tried to take down President Trump and their ties to communism and socialism. She also looks at the pushback against Marxism that's being hampered by Big Tech censorship with an iron fist on the not-so-free flow of information.
Theories abound, both reasonable and far off in conspiracy land about any number of topics. But ultimately, what is the truth? In this week's boralogue, John recounts the purpose behind this program: to get to the truth. What is the truth in any situation? It doesn't matter where it comes from or how sane or crazy it sounds. If it's the truth and it's provable, then it is newsworthy and something worth talking about.
If a drug can successfully help mitigate this virus, why then are so many people outraging against it? Dr. Brian Joondeph (www.retinacolorado.com), Retina Surgeon at Colorado Retina Associates joins us to answer that plus he examines off-label uses of medicines and covers the overreach by power-hungry politicians during this pandemic.
Troy Loeffler, John's son, makes a brief appearance to explain how statistics are being used, misused, and misunderstood by experts and media pundits in covering this crisis.
Never trust bloated bureaucracies, especially during an emergency. Seton Motley (www.lessgovernment.org), Founder and President of Less Government, sounds the alarm on the marriage of big government and big tech in tracking virus patients. His message: if you think it will stop there, you're crazy.
An often overlooked story amidst the chaos of news today is that of the emerging 5G network. Author and Commentator Ben Weingarten (www.benweingarten.com) is back with us to discuss the strategic implications of losing the communications and information transfer battle with China where it concerns 5G technology.
Finally, John and Producer Steve chat about the dysfunctional media and their coverage of the coronavirus pandemic, their strategy against the president, and some biased editing ahead of the November election.
John's quote of the week:
“You get to a positive destination through life and to be with the Lord with an infinite series of negative feedback corrections. But bad feedback is going to get you to a bad destination. … I have one bottom line on the program: getting to the truth in any kind of a situation is the most critical thing out there.”
On this week's extra segment, we play a round table discussion from 2015 on globalism. The participants are Dr. Dennis Cuddy, Pat Wood, and Brannon Howse. The topic is covered from spiritual, technocratic, and historical standpoints. Fantastic exchange between John and these guests.
