Judicial Activism Takes a Hit

Broadcast Running Time: 01:19:30

The Supreme Court is supposed to determine the constitutionality of laws, not give people what they want. John opens the show this week looking at some of the recent Supreme Court decisions – namely the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade – and gives a history of judicial activism. The crazy narratives that have been pushed for so many years have now hit reality and the pendulum is starting to swing the other way. People are beginning to see through the Marxist ideology and post-modern thinking that saturates our society today.

An example of a narrative that is still firmly entrenched, at least in California, is that of environmental activism and the state's policy on water. Joining us is Edward Ring (edwardring.com), Senior Fellow at the Center for American Greatness. These activists are adamant that no desalination plants be built in California, even though the process would help the state's water issues. He debunks the 'bad for the environment' talking points and shows how California has become a defacto communist state of crushing bureaucracy.

Finally this week, we look to Ukraine since there's still a war going on there. Reuben Johnson, our Ukraine expert, is back with us to give updates on how ineffective the Russian military has been, mostly from poor leadership. He also addresses rumors about Vladimir Putin's health and comments on the recent attack on a Ukraine shopping center.

The Supreme Court has ruled on a number of cases lately, including the Dobbs case that overruled Roe v. Wade, and most of these decisions have adhered to the Constitution. This has made the judicial activist crowd quite mad. John flies solo today taking a look at some of these cases, examining the history of judicial activism in the court and how narratives that weren't based in reality are losing water and the pendulum of truth is swinging the other way. How did it get so bad originally? Marxism in the schools and post-modernist thought in society today.

Roe v Wade was overturned on Friday and predictably the reaction from the pro-abortion crowd was to rant and rave and riot. Producer Steve flies solo today and examines a number of issues, including judicial activism then and now, the talking points from the Left after the ruling on Friday, violence over the weekend, and the trigger laws going into effect in some states now. He also looks at what the Left may do moving forward and why courts are a more attractive venue to push liberal agendas than legislatures.

John is taking a well-deserved day off after a long road trip, so Producer Steve takes over the microphone today – yes, John will be back! What do calling everything racist and forced mandates have in common? Steve looks at what the progressives are really saying when they claim things are racist and what elites are really telling all of us when they force mandates on us. Hint: it's not a flattering message. And because it's not flattering, they get the media outlets to gaslight us into believing it's true. We can – and must – fight against it.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked this week the Emergencies Act in an effort to defeat the trucker Freedom Convoy – a rally that has occupied parts of Ottawa for three weeks to protest Trudeau's stifling Covid mandates. John and Producer Steve discuss the implications of the Emergencies Act and compare it to Hitler and the leadup to Nazi rule in the 1930s. Anyone who opposes the government's – whether it be in Canada or the U.S. – official position will be branded a terrorist and once that happens, the government's actions against those people, no matter how egregious and anti-freedom, will be deemed justified. It's a dangerous precedent to set.

Listening to the media is enough to make you crazy! On today's podcast, John and Producer Steve sit down and try to make sense of it all. They discuss the tactics media use to distort the truth and advocate for one side of the political aisle. They also get into the kerfuffle over the article in The Atlantic trouncing the President for being disrespectful to our military.

In this week's boralogue, John tackles two very important topics. First up, there is a battle of worldviews happening in Western civilization because society has drifted away from its founding ideals. Reform, then, must occur, but the fight against entrenched swamp critters will be long and it will be tough. Second topic: this weekend marks the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, and John relates stories of several persecuted Christians to pray for.

What is the difference between impeachment inquiries in the Watergate era and those occurring now? John O'Connor (www.joclaw.com), Attorney and Owner of O'Connor and Associates, joins us to discuss the contrast between 1973 and 2019 regarding impeachment and how the current media are purposefully lying to further a narrative. He also covers how intelligence agencies and Hillary Clinton's campaign spied on candidate Trump in 2016.

There's a knock at the Church's door and it's socialism that is busting in. Steven Grant (www.godsdestiny.com), Senior Pastor of Destiny Christian Center in Colorado, examines the invading secular worldview that is slowly but definitely usurping the Gospel in the Church, and asserts that church leaders need to be prepared to stand in the faith before it's too late.

A western Canadian professor was recently fired for going against the climate change narrative and claiming – through documented research – that polar bears are thriving. Dr. Bonner Cohen (www.cfact.org), Senior Policy Analyst with the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), joins us to show how climate alarmists are stifling the speech of those who don't tow the green line.

John's quote of the week:
"In reform, we have two problems: getting back to our foundations, and fighting off those swamp critters that not only don't want to see us go back to our foundations, but also want to see the whole thing destroyed. We have to keep bearing witness to the truth because truth is our ally in this entire worldview battle."

In this week's Extras segment, Producer Steve takes over and plays an excerpt from an early October episode of his podcast, War on Stupid. Steve enumerates an exhaustive and entertaining laundry list of controversies against President Trump from Inauguration Day to the Ukraine phone call. Steve covers why this keeps happening and why, after all the so-called wrongdoings, impeachment is happening now.
