Eventually, the power, money, and control crowd will use the true believers and discard them when they're no longer useful. Most of the true believers today run on woke ideology. As our first guest this week, we welcome back Jason Hill (jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago. Regardless of what the true believers tell you they are battling against, the power brokers are using them to destroy Western civilization. Most people don't agree with that ideology, but they also don't stand up to it out of fear of being canceled or worse. But standing up is exactly what needs to be done or there will be a fundamental transformation of our national identity.
People in positions of influence have warned America's leaders for years that we are woefully unprepared to fight against China or Russia militarily or in the cyber warfare arena. Have our leaders listened? Back with us this week is David Pyne (emptaskforce.us), Deputy Director of National Operations for the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He points out that our leaders are not listening but he has solutions for them anyway should someone eventually take heed. He lays out several different actions needed to shore up our defenses and hopes that it won't take a devastating attack against our country for them to be implemented.
We had elections this week and John comments on how parents and their strong feelings against CRT had a big impact on the governor's race in Virginia. But before we close out with that, John asks the question: why do Jews, as a voting bloc, tend to overwhelmingly vote for a party that doesn't support Israel or Jewish causes? We invite in Rabbi Dov Fisher (yioc.org) of Young Israel of Orange County, California to discuss. Part of the answer involves the nature of who is and who is not a Jew. He looks at Reform versus Orthodox Judaism as well as the history of anti-semitism.
