There are two ideological sides in our divided country. But these two sides are coming at any issue from two very different foundations. Back with us today is Wesley Smith (discovery.org), Chair and Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute's Center on Human Exceptionalism. He examines the differences in debating today, including how each side has a different lexicon - different meanings for the same words – and a different mindset. Fundamentally, there is a different moral frame of reference which makes trying to discuss or debate any issue virtually impossible. There are those on either side who are still operating under the old paradigm, refusing to accept that the debate arena will never be what it once was.
Extended conversation this week as John and Carol sit down with father and son economic experts Donald and David McAlvany (mcalvanyica.com). The foursome team up to tackle a variety of topics, including current financial trends, burgeoning inflation, the upcoming economic reset, and the rapid onset of in-your-face socialism. They also take a look at the theological and philosophical side of things, as well as the importance of strategic thinking and long-term planning, and the need for little people to do big things each and every day.
We finish up this week with Tammi Rossman-Benjamin (amchainitiative.org), Co-Founder and Director of the AMCHA Initiative. She describes her efforts to combat a bill in California that would force critical race theory into high school curricula. She focuses on the toxic antisemitic nature of CRT and how it doesn’t attempt to eradicate racism and hate – it perpetuates them.
Our round table discussion today, hosted by John and Carol, features two of the most knowledgeable people we know when it comes to economics and theology: father and son duo Donald and David McAlvany (mcalvanyica.com). The foursome team up to tackle a variety of topics, including the facts behind current financial trends and inflation, a realistic look at the upcoming economic reset, and the rapid onset of in-your-face socialism. They also take a look at the spiritual and philosophical side of things, the importance of strategic thinking and long-term planning, and the need for little people to do big things each and every day. It's a long and fascinating conversation!
Every few months or so, we break out the crystal ball with esteemed futurist James Kunstler (kunstler.com), who is back with us today, to see where we're headed. James looks at the future of economics and culture, and how if we are expecting to live in an orderly society in the next several decades, we are mistaken. He examines the impending economic reset, debt forgiveness, and how the economic elites see the future versus how he sees it. He explores the future of cities and suburbs, realistically looking at today's realities to predict tomorrow's likelihoods. No one knows the future, but if he's proven correct, we need to be prepared for the tough times ahead.
Studio Round table today as John, Carol, and Steve sit down to discuss the state of things post-election and post-Capitol Hill violence. There is a paradigm shift happening. It's important to recognize what is going on and how to move forward. We cover what happened at the Capitol, comparisons to the Reichstag fire of 1933, and the push to impeach President Trump on his way out the door. We also look at the silencing of conservatives on social media and the fear that many are feeling about where our country is heading. Despite the fear and negativity, there is hope in how we move forward.
John gives a dose of reality sprinkled with a dash of hope on today's podcast. After the ugly events of Wednesday at the U.S. Capitol, it helps to step back and get some perspective. John makes comparisons to the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 – how media and the left assigned every conservative a measure of guilt for the tragedy. You're seeing the same thing this week. There was little to no condemnation, especially against a collective group of people, over the summer for the two months of rioting and death then.
There is a major paradigm shift occurring in the world right now – the Great Reset is a big part of it and it is marching forward unhindered. John cites several examples from Steel past that foretold of the Great Reset we're seeing now. Could we be in the End Times – or at least the run-up to it? John gives hope from Scripture that God is with us and He will win out. We will have to go through some tough times, but God will prevail.
Kameel Majdali, Director of the organization Teach All Nations joins us to first of all discuss his perspective of the attempted hijacking of sovereignty in regards to the Brexit and its similarity with ousting President Trump. He then goes on to answer several questions. How do we stay calm in the face of all this chaos associated with the current paradigm shift? Will we have a reset or a revival? Will there be a great American awakening?
Following up on yesterday's round table discussion on overcoming angst, John and Carol collaborate today to look at the new normal (or ongoing paradigm shift) in the world of economics. They look at the global economic picture, the actions of central banks around the world, and how the virus is affecting businesses both big and small. They also play a clip from this week's McAlvany Weekly Commentary on how the markets are realigning to the new normal.
This election has brought forth a paradigm shift and like it or not, no matter which administration occupies the White House come January, things will be decidedly different. So we assembled the knights of the Steel round table – namely John, Carol, and Producer Steve – to talk about it. They cover a potential Biden presidency – and who would actually be running things, how the media are colluding with the democrats, and how the one-worlder crowd is attempting to reassert their plans now that they think President Trump is on his way out. There is definitely a paradigm shift occurring. The best plan forward is to adjust to the new reality instead of clinging to the old.
First up this week, we have defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson (www.thebulwark.com), joining us from Kiev, Ukraine, where he examines the geopolitics of Russia and China, including Putin's new extended stay as Russian leader, the possible collapse economically of both countries, and how well Americans understand what's happening outside of the U.S.
We transition to Peter Vincent Pry (www.emptaskforcenhs.com), Executive Director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He looks at how little the U.S. has prepared against a possible EMP attack and how a power bloc of countries would compete for control if the U.S. were ever to militarily leave a region.
What is a paradigm shift and what does it look like when you're going through one? In this week's boralogue, John makes sense of all the chaos we're seeing today, explaining the different steps of the paradigm shift happening right now and how to survive it. We must retain the foundations America was built on once we've shifted or we're done as a free country.
We round out the program this week with John's analysis on logical fallacies, how best to spot them, and what you can do to refute them.
