Texas Senate Bill 8, the state abortion ban, has taken effect and abortions are down in the state. Opponents are frustrated, but could that frustration boomerang back on conservatives? Back with us today is Jacob Sullum (reason.com), Senior Editor at Reason Magazine. Could this bill, which is on its surface great for pro-lifers, be detrimental to other conservative issues in the future? Jacob and John discuss the precedents that could be set, the pros and cons of the bill, and whether it's actually equal representation regardless of what side you're on. It's a reasoned, fair conversation about Texas's abortion ban and its legal consequences.
John has been waiting a long time to interview today's guest, spending many weeks poring over his books. Joining us is author, researcher, and Spanish language radio host César Vidal (cesarvidal.com). He and John discuss how Western democracy needs to keep its Biblical roots intact in order to survive. A new kind of socialism is upon us – one that's more technocratic with a public-private partnership thrown in. It's invading every aspect of our lives, especially the Christian church. That's where our roots lie. Mr. Vidal also examines the Reformation and counter-Reformation as it pertains to North America versus South America.
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.
We're a hundred years out from the Roaring 20s of the last century. How different will this decade be from that one? In this week's boralogue, John looks at how our freedoms are eroding and how a technocracy and public-private partnership will completely restructure the government as we know it without the consent of the governed. It's time for reform if we want to preserve the freedoms in the Constitution. Little people like us are just the ones to do that.
The basis for the 1619 Project is that the history of the United States is rooted in slavery and racism at every turn. Dr. Jason Hill (www.jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago, joins us to examine how the U.S. overcame slavery and helped pull many people out of poverty through capitalism. But instead of being taught this in classrooms, students learn how to hate what it means to be an American.
John gives a brief analysis on the history of the Peace Process in the Middle East between Israel and the Palestinians, questioning who Israel's peace partner would be since past and present candidates have all walked away from the negotiating table.
Richard Shinder (www.theatine.com), Founder and Managing Partner of Theatine Partners, joins us to discuss the latest with globalism during the pandemic and how countries tend to reject it and turn inward during a crisis.
Finally, we welcome Nick Adams (www.nickadamsusa.com), Founder of the Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness. He promotes his new book, Trump and Churchill, comparing and contrasting the two men, looking at their actions, the media's perception of them, and their place in the annals of history.
