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.
Hostilities in Ukraine are still happening so we invite back today our Ukraine expert Reuben Johnson to evaluate the status of Russia, its military, and its leader while the battle rages on. He covers a lot of topics, including how pre-war predictions of Russia's success were way off, Russia's inability to be strategic on the battlefield, and the lack of Russian youth signing up for the military. He also addresses rumors about Vladimir Putin's health, gives some advice to the Biden administration, and comments on the recent attack on a Ukraine shopping center.
The Russia-Ukraine conflict has slid out of the spotlight in favor of economic concerns or even celebrity trial stories. But the conflict still rages on. Back with us today is our Ukraine expert Reuben Johnson to give us an update on how things are going over there. He details the inefficiency of the Russian military as far as preparedness and battlefield planning. Some of their soldiers are focusing more on looting than strategy. He also looks at the politics surrounding the conflict.
John flies solo today, digging deep into the archives of media history to play a speech given in 1938 by American politician Lewis Schwellenbach (D-WA). Why is he playing this speech? To show the similarities and differences between what happened with Hitler overrunning Austria in 1938 and what Putin is doing in Ukraine today. There are many similarities with what politicians and the media were saying then and now. The primary difference is that today, we are far more connected globally and unable to take an isolationist stance like we could back then. It's important to learn lessons from history and apply them to today.
Globalists have for decades tried to transform the world order and establish a one-world government. And they'll use whatever crisis they can to accomplish that. Back with us today is Alex Newman (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American. He examines events leading up to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, including divisions within the Russian Orthodox Church in both countries. He discusses the fallacy that Christianity and Marxism are similar – a common leftist narrative. He even looks at conflicting messaging by both the right and the left regarding good guys and bad guys in the war. Maybe the only way to truly understand what's going on is to understand how the globalists are using division and confusion with this conflict to realize their plans.
For a couple of weeks, we had no idea what had become of our Ukraine-based expert Reuben Johnson. Had he escaped Kiev? Was he injured or dead? Thankfully, we received a call from him letting us know what had happened. He is with us today to share his incredible tale – one that involves his car being destroyed by machine gun fire! He also discusses conversations he has had and reports he's received regarding the mindset of both Russian and Ukrainian soldiers.
