Oil Industry & Markets

If at first you don't succeed – at thwarting the Constitution – try end running it instead. Several examples on the show this week of globalists end running the law in order to continue fundamentally transforming this country. First up we welcome Stefano Gennarini (c-fam.org), Vice President for Legal Studies at the Center for Family and Human Rights. He looks at how the United Nations is considering making abortion a fundamental human right, poised to declare it an established customary right under international law. This could undo the overturn of Roe v Wade that is expected soon from the Supreme Court.

We had a successful economy in the U.S., largely due to a thriving energy industry. Somehow that was all quickly undone. Next up this week is Daniel Turner (powerthefuture.com), Founder and CEO of Power the Future. He discusses how the current administration is trying to gaslight the public with truly unbelievable mixed messages on energy. He reminds us how fossil fuels keep the world running and how renewables aren't yet ready for prime time. Ultimately, the misleading narratives and their related policies weakened a very prosperous economy.

A capitalist economy runs on competition and fair business practices – or at least it's supposed to. Big Tech companies are getting around that by unfairly undercutting the little guy. Here to chat about that is Christopher Bedford (rightforge.com), Chief Communications Officer at RightForge. There's a new act in Congress that aims to curtail these unethical practices, much like antitrust acts used to do. Big Tech, though, is fighting tooth and nail to defeat it.

Finally this week, we welcome Justin Butterfield (firstliberty.org), Deputy General Counsel at First Liberty Institute. He looks at the case of an Oakland University student who was evicted from campus housing. What did she do wrong? She shared online how to apply for a religious exemption to the covid vaccine. Once again, we see an example of elitists end running the Constitution and violating, in this case, religious freedom.

It's time for John's monthly foray in the interviewee chair as he joins Lee Lancaster at the KYMS studios. John and Lee discuss high gas prices and the false messaging surrounding it as well as the faltering worldwide economy. They examine how geopolitical events like these affect the martyred church around the world. John reports on persecuted Christians in Pakistan and Nigeria and points out that freedom in this country is not the norm of history – unfortunately slavery and persecution is.

Messaging on energy from the White House is all over the place from 'Putin is to blame' to 'greedy oil companies' to 'oil companies aren't making enough' – sometimes all three at once! Joining us today is Daniel Turner (powerthefuture.com), Founder and CEO of Power the Future. He looks at the clearly Marxist aspect of the current administration's messaging strategy on energy and climate, and reveals the reality behind the fossil fuels vs renewables debate. The entire narrative sweeping across the climate agenda is all about power. Not the kind that fossil fuels make possible, but the kind that globalists want to wield over you and me.

With fuel costs up and electric cars expensive to make and to purchase, you have to ask yourself: is this all happening on purpose? And if so, why? Joining us today is Levi Russell (levirussell.com), Assistant Teaching Professor of Applied Economics at the University of Kansas. He looks at the problems associated with obtaining rare earth metals now and in the future and the sheer impossibility of achieving what the climate alarmists say they're trying to achieve. Could it be that the plan all along was to make energy so expensive that we just don't use it?

The Biden administration announced that they are suspending the Disinformation Governance Board. But is the desire to control information really gone from our government? First up this week, we welcome writer and scientist Dr. Matt Briggs (wmbriggs.com) to the program. He shows that even though the disinformation board is on hiatus, other similar offices still exist, like the Office of Environment Justice. Government, in establishing what disinformation is supposed to be, is also establishing what truth is supposed to be.

The need to create a disinformation board in the first place is still prevalent and, according to our next guest, is more about being afraid of dissent rather than disinformation. Back with us today is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. The left has evolved from supporting all free speech no matter what to now demonizing free speech – especially if it goes against their narrative.

We finish up this week with a report out of Canada that the Trudeau administration may soon require journalists to obtain a license if they want to keep doing business. Joining us is freelance writer and software engineer Michael Tennant (thenewamerican.com). Journalists are not yet required to get a license in Canada, but subsidies and preferential treatment tend to go to those who have one. With freedom of speech under attack in the U.S., how long before we see a similar requirement for our press?

This Memorial Day, we take time to honor, reflect, and remember those who've made the ultimate sacrifice for our country so we can keep those freedoms we often talk about.

So, the Biden administration just announced that they are discontinuing the Disinformation Governance Board. We recorded today's interview right before that announcement. The topics today, however, are still very much relevant. Back with us after a long hiatus is writer and scientist Dr. Matt Briggs (wmbriggs.com). He discusses the obvious faults with a disinformation board, as well as similar problems with the new Office of Environment Justice and its counterpart in the Securities and Exchange Commission. Government, in establishing what disinformation is supposed to be, is also establishing what truth is supposed to be.

We have now arrived in this country at a time when a lot of bad ideas are coming home to roost. People are feeling pain because of it. We'll look at two examples of that today. First, John and Producer Steve chat about the recent SCOTUS draft opinion leak and the issues surrounding that. They look at the protests around the Justices' homes, end running the Constitution, ignoring the rule of law, and how the Tenth Amendment is usually and conveniently forgotten. Twisting the language of the Constitution to fit an ideology is always a bad idea and we're seeing the consequences of that now.

Second this week, we focus on the bad ideas related to environmentalism and the current administration's energy strategy. John welcomes Greg Kozera (shalecrescentusa.com), Director of Marketing for Shale Crescent USA. He draws on his experience in the industry to discuss America's energy problems. Climate alarmists demand change, despite the U.S. having cleaner methods of extraction and cleaner fuel. The current administration's bad ideas have only made matters worse, but he offers realistic solutions.

When you're surrounded by bad ideas and the entrenched bureaucracy keeps pumping them out, it takes a lot to stand up to them. We finish out the show this week with Rachel Alexander (intellectualconservative.com), Founder and Editor of the Intellectual Conservative. She describes how Arizona's Attorney General Mark Brnovich is taking on the swamp and is having some success. His strategy: be bold and be not afraid. Fighting this battle is hard, but when bad ideas lead to real world pain, good, sound ideas can counter them.

America's energy strategy is failing under the Biden administration. Is there a realistic solution? Joining John today is Greg Kozera (shalecrescentusa.com), Director of Marketing for Shale Crescent USA. He draws on his decades of experience in the industry, showing that the U.S. has cleaner methods of energy extraction and cleaner fuel. Since the current administration is seemingly doing nothing to fix our energy problems, Greg offers several solutions. One answer is for companies to manufacture here – cleaner energy and cheaper transportation – and for consumers then to buy American goods.

The Securities and Exchange Commission recently proposed a rule that would force public companies to disclose climate risks involved in their operation. Joining us today to go over this is author and scholar John Horvat II (returntoorder.org). This rule and others like it don't make sense economically, so they must be motivated by ideology. Regardless of the source, the perception is that America is weak and working against itself. In regards to this rule, oil companies will face harassment and declined production because the Biden administration has declared war on American energy at a time when we need it the most.

In order for globalists to enact total control through their Great Reset, they need to plan accordingly at every step. Back with us today is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He shows us the logical progression of their plan based on studying history and human nature. He discusses inflation, universal basic income, price controls, digital currencies, and more. The solution for us is to start businesses and create a parallel society now. Government knows that, so what's the best way for them to keep businesses from starting? Boost inflation. What are we seeing now? Sounds like the plan has begun.
