After several weeks of intense reading and studying, John asked author, researcher, and Spanish language radio host César Vidal (cesarvidal.com) to be on the program. He joins us this week to discuss the new kind of socialism we're seeing in the West. It has technocracy, public-private partnerships, and a particularly insidious campaign to demonize nationalism and infiltrate the Christian church by undermining its roots. It's all part of their attempt to destroy America and the West.

We then move to Texas and its new state abortion ban. Abortions are down as a result and opponents are frustrated. But could that frustration boomerang back on conservatives? Next up this week is Jacob Sullum (reason.com), Senior Editor at Reason Magazine. He looks at the pros and cons of the Texas bill and the precedents it could set. This bill, which seems great for pro-lifers, could be detrimental to other conservative issues and groups in the future.

Finally this week, little is being said about Iran after the Afghanistan debacle, but a new report suggests that Iran could be weeks away from possessing nuclear weapons. Ken Timmerman (iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, rounds out the show this week. Iran's nuclear program is advancing, but their government is in disarray. Unfortunately for us, the Biden administration and our military seem just as chaotic.

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.
