politically correct narratives

John and Producer Steve take over the studio for today's podcast, looking at inconsistencies in leftist "logic" and media narratives. Steve is having none of it, quietly ranting while John calmly explains what we're seeing and hearing out there. They cover vaccines and the mandates that are requiring them, Kyle Rittenhouse's guilt or innocence – depending on what side you're on, the failure of defunding the police, and the nature of definitions, especially when it comes to racism.

We kick off October with an in-studio conversation between John and Producer Steve.  They cover a variety of topics, including the possible emergence of a parallel society away from woke indoctrination and policies, the inconsistencies in the vaccine narrative, energy troubles in Europe, and a new challenge to Roe v Wade.  They also discuss threats to traditionalism, how freedom is at the heart of what this country stands for, and the stark difference between political narratives and reality.

Vaccine mandates, disastrous Afghanistan pullout, narrative spin by the media – it's enough to make one crazy. On today's podcast, John and Steve look at a variety of topics including the Texas abortion ban bill, whether the vaccines work or not, vaccine mandates, and the uncertainty around covid messaging. Narrative seems to rule over truth. With all the confusion surrounding narratives and messaging and science report wars and constant angst, there is something positive to focus on – faith in Christ. It orients you and offers hope, stability, and a never-changing message in a chaotic world.

Now that hostilities have theoretically abated in the latest Israel-Gaza war, it's important to look at, and learn from, what really happened there. Back with us today is Bruce Thornton (fresnostate.edu), Professor of Classics and Humanities at California State University in Fresno. It's hard to filter out the reality of the situation in the Middle East – or any situation – when politicians and the media push lies meant to further narratives. Examples include how the Palestinians want peace, despite their actions; the climate debate is settled, except the debate has never happened; and universities say they are all about education, but it really seems like they're all about grant money and donations. Narratives may sound nice, but when you're trying to solve real problems in the real world, all they do is get in the way.

Lucas Miles: Wokeness Doctrine

Broadcast Running Time: 23:11

Leftism and Marxist ideologies are seeping into the Christian church in the U.S. How do we recognize it before it does irreparable damage? Joining us from his church in Indiana is Lucas Miles (lucasmiles.org), Pastor of Nfluence Church. He looks at the incompatibility of Christianity and the woke ideology found in sermons and even doctrine in some churches today. A lot of groups espousing this wokeness doctrine disguise it with Christian-sounding words. If pastors are telling you that they don't worship the Jesus from the Bible but instead a more modern, woke Jesus, then hard conversations are needed and quickly.

China is positioning itself to become the world's biggest superpower, replacing the U.S. as leader on the world stage. Retired U.S. Navy Intelligence Captain James Fanell is back with us this week from his home in Switzerland. Chinese leadership is saying one thing, but their actions convey something completely different. Under President Trump, we were attempting to stay even with China, but with the new Biden administration, we may lose any advantage we once had. With their aggressive tactics, will China surpass the U.S. as the world's most dominant superpower?

Reading from the leftist playbook, groups aligned with the BDS movement in Israel are now shouting 'Jewish supremacism!' Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst with the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis, discusses how Christian groups are getting caught up in untrue narratives from different anti-Israel groups and justifying their actions against the Jewish state.

Finally this week, we look at the case of Kevin Clinesmith, the FBI lawyer who plead guilty to falsifying evidence during the Spygate scandal in 2016. He was recently sentenced to probation – effectively a slap on the wrist. We welcome back Thomas Lifson (www.americanthinker.com), Founder and Editor of American Thinker, who reviews the Clinesmith case and shows how the establishment circles their wagons and always seems to weather the storm while the little guy is afforded no such protections.

Many individual conservatives have been cancelled online for speaking against the leftist orthodoxy, but what happens when an entire website is wiped out? First up on the show this week, we speak with Russ White (rule11.tech), nationwide expert in network infrastructure architecture. He looks at how some Big Tech companies have a virtual monopoly on what gets seen online. If they don't like your speech then you no longer have a digital footprint. This violates free speech and is dangerous. In other words, it's fascism.

Why do voters in minority areas continuously vote for a party that most of the time does not represent their values? John welcomes conservative author and speaker Autry Pruitt (newjourneypac.org) to the show, who examines how Republicans have dropped the ball in minority neighborhoods and churches. He also explains how pastors and church members reconcile their faith with the doctrines of the democrat party. There is a shift to the left in society and in the theology of the church.

The new totalitarianism springing up in the West will praise socialism as a way to infiltrate the Christian church. How then will the church be affected and how should it fight back? Wrapping up the show this week is Dr. Erwin Lutzer (moodymedia.org), Pastor Emeritus of Moody Bible Church, who debunks the myth that socialism and the Bible are compatible. The church is facing many assaults, which is when leftists offer their version of socialistic hope. But Christianity offers true hope and that must be what we lovingly preach moving forward.
