public school system

We recently chatted with Chaplain E. Ray Moore about the importance of a private, Christian education over what you get from public schools. A colleague of his has developed a method that allows parents to take control of their child's schooling, giving them the tools they need. Joining us today is the Founder of that method, known as the One-Room Schoolhouse method, Dr. Diane Davis (oneroomschooltraining.com). She describes the benefits of having a small classroom – yes, in one room – where children of several different grade levels gather to learn together. Her most important focus: that parents should be the ones in charge of what their children learn.

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.

The Context of Our Times

After much outrage over CRT, it seemed to have faded into obscurity. But news of a Missouri school district including questions in a math assignment related to sexual activity has raised questions about its return. First up this week, we welcome to the show Andrea Widburg (americanthinker.com), Deputy Editor at American Thinker. She looks at how this one example points to a much bigger problem: school curricula are still rife with woke lies about history along with vivid sexual depictions. Thankfully, most parents – and even a few on the left – are not fooled and are beginning to see the truth. Is wokus pokus in schools finally being drowned out by the truth?

Many in younger generations today rely on Google to look up the truth about history or other issues. The problem with that is: how do you know what you're finding is actually true? John flies solo in this segment, examining how much of what Google purports to be fact is often taken out of context. You need to understand facts in context in order to understand why people behave the way they do. Knowing human nature and applying it to history gives you a much clearer, fact-based look at our past, rather than the wokus pokus version we often see. This will help our children in schools as they wade through the waters of indoctrination.

Finally this week, we take a brief look at one of the latest political scandals: the Hunter Biden laptop. Joining us is Lloyd Billingsley (independent.org), Policy Fellow at the Independent Institute. He discusses the further downfall of the intelligence community after current and former IC members published a letter incorrectly denouncing the laptop story as disinformation. The CIA and FBI have become politicized for one side and while doing so have neglected their real job, which is keeping the nation safe.

A Missouri school district is in hot water with parents after a math assignment was found to include questions related to sexual activity. It's one example in one school district, but it points to a larger problem. Joining us today is Andrea Widburg (americanthinker.com), Deputy Editor at American Thinker. CRT has been so demonized that the use of the acronym has begun to fade, but SEL (social and emotional learning) has taken its place – and it contains the exact same material. History books rife with woke lies about the U.S. are part of most curricula today, but parents and even some on the left are beginning to see the truth. Woke messaging is finally being drowned out by conservative pushback. The question is: will it last?

With the Left entrenched in nearly every arena in society, it takes a lot to stand up to them. Someone who has experience in that fight joins us today: Rachel Alexander (intellectualconservative.com), Founder and Editor of the Intellectual Conservative. She recounts how Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is taking on both Arizona State University and the Arizona Bar Association (who retaliated against him for going after the school). The media and the politicos are showing their hypocrisy yet again in highlighting his defeats and ignoring his successes. Battling the hornet's nest takes a toll, but there are some brave souls out there willing to do it. Will there be more?

In Massachusetts, a church has applied to open a Bible-based school, but the local subcommittee in charge of approving their request dragged their feet and ultimately declined the request. Discussing the issue today is Andrew Beckwith (mafamily.org), President of the Massachusetts Family Institute. According to the law, the church has met the requirements needed to open the school, so we'll see how the full committee votes in late April. He examines other education cases in Massachusetts, including one where student athletes must sign a diversity pledge before they can play sports. For the woke leftists, their policies are a religion as well – albeit one that is diametrically opposed to Christianity.

It’s Time to Get Real

In the midst of the globalists' Great Reset plans, it's important that you root yourself and your family in reality because, as we always say, it will win in the end. First up this week to discuss some of those nefarious Great Reset plans is author and academic freedom spokesman Michael Rectenwald (michaelrectenwald.com). He looks at sustainability measures, ESG scores, and stakeholder capitalism. We're even close to implementing China's social credit score here in America. Anchoring yourself to the truth and reality will help get you through the Reset storms that are coming.

If you don't anchor yourself to reality, all kinds of problems crop up that can quickly spiral out of control when reality becomes real. What should we be teaching our children so they avoid those problems? Joining us this week to discuss this is author and cryptography expert Paul Rosenberg (freemansperspective.com). He advocates for teaching your children how to think through a problem, rooting themselves in reality first. Once that's established, it becomes easy to maneuver through different ideas on the way to solving a problem. If reality is going to win, it's best to be anchor yourself there.

Finally this week, we ask a fundamental question about our country: if free speech is essential for a free society, why is there such a brutal war on it? Here to answer that question is Brandon Smith (alt-market.us), Founder of the Alternative Market Project. He shows the tactics of those on the Left who are waging war to fundamentally transform our society. They claim the Right peddles misinformation, but can't name any specifics. They won't debate you because they lack substance to their arguments. So instead they wage a war on free speech so that no one can challenge their ideals. They will lose, though, because reality always becomes real. Share

Governor Glenn Youngkin won the Virginia governor's race last November largely because parents weren't happy about the outgoing governor's policies and mandates. The new governor has undone those policies but now faces legal challenges from progressives. We welcome to the program former Deputy Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Virginia, Mr. Ken Davis. He looks at the battles Youngkin is facing as well as the legality of executive orders and the increasing irrelevance of legislatures. Whenever attempts at reforming government are enacted, government bureaucrats fight back.

For the better part of a century, progressives have long marched through the institution of education and the results have been disastrous.  It's time for parents to take back their child's education and begin a long march of their own.  Joining us today is Joe Murray (joemurrayenterprises.com), attorney, teacher, and founder of Joe Murray Enterprises.  He looks at ways parents can save public education by focusing on ridding curricula of social justice buzzwords and allowing children to think for themselves instead of being indoctrinated.  There are realistic steps parents can take right now to start marching in the other direction.

School boards are declaring that they know best for your child. The FBI has been weaponized to go after parents who speak up as if they were terrorists. What can parents do? Back with us today is Nicole Neily (defendinged.org), Founder and President of Parents Defending Education. She and John look at how brazen school boards and teachers' unions have been and how it has galvanized parents to stand up for their rights. They discuss ways parents can fight back and protect their children from the educrat tyranny in today's schools.
