Yesterday we started a conversation with Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson about the geopolitical outlook between China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the U.S. Today we continue that discussion, looking at the state of America's biased media and comparisons to Russian TV and newspapers. John and Reuben also discuss what will become of the Republican party following President Trump's exit from the White House and they take a deep dive into the worldview of the Left and how that has influenced Western society.
After a brief look behind the scenes of the election chaos, Steve looks at a couple of stories, one involving a public school system and the other the American Medical Association. Linking these together with the plethora of journalist activists in the media, Steve points out that advocacy is showing up in places where it's not supposed to be. This effort is being steered by those who want to bring about the downfall of our country. Can we turn the tide in time?
There has to be a way to fight back against the politicization of public schools. Larry Sand (www.ctenhome.org), President of the California Teachers Empowerment Network, joins us to discuss the indoctrination he saw a bit during his tenure as a teacher and a lot since he has retired. In order to stop this, parents need to step up. Check with your child to see what they are being taught and if it doesn't sit well with you, visit school officials or the board.
Businesses and especially college campuses have transitioned into centers of political correctness. On this week's boralogue, John looks at social justice warriors with their name it and shame it games, outrage campaigns, and even violent mobs. For far too long social justice warriors have been successful, but now many are catching on to these modern Brownshirt tactics and are pushing back. We must always choose freedom over those who would try to keep it from us.
We've heard stories of students or adults having MAGA hats ripped off their heads by suddenly enraged progressives. Karen Hurvitz (www.educationwithoutindoctrination.org), Legal Counsel to the group Education Without Indoctrination, joins us to discuss how her client's life went from bad to worse after his MAGA hat was stolen by his teacher who then waged an all-out legal and outrage campaign against him.
After analyzing the coronavirus's impact on the economy, John welcomes Anne Schlafly Cori (www.eagleforum.org), Chairman of the Eagle Forum, who explains why the Equal Rights Amendment, long thought extinct, has made a comeback recently and why, with its manipulative language, it's a bad idea.
John's quote of the week:
"To the relativists who engage in postmodern thought, any affront that challenges their belief is not just something that needs to be debated. It is a threat to the entire system that they believe in. The only thing that keeps this relative, compartmentalized, self-contradicting series of propositions together is each of them telling each other that it really works and anyone that doesn't agree with them is obviously a --- fill in the blank (and there's a long list)."
On this week's extra segment, we dip back a couple of years to February 2018 with John commenting on several audio clips concerning globalism and the long running agenda to obliterate sovereignty.
If you don't live in the United Kingdom, you may not be well-versed on the Brexit situation, which has once again popped up in the news. In this week's boralogue, John gives a backgrounder on Brexit, from its sketchy origins to the recent inability of Prime Minister May to engineer a deal to current Prime Minister Johnson's troubles this past week. There are long rolling agendas afoot that ultimately thwart the will of the people and cater to the globalists.
Social justice warriors have begun changing the meaning of certain words in an attempt to change culture. Philip Carl Salzman (www.mindingthecampus.org), Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at McGill University, joins us to discuss how SJWs are in fact re-engineering language. It lasts from early education into universities to the point where people have begun self-censoring just to be left alone.
Finally we welcome back to the program author and Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim (www.raymondibrahim.com) who examines a number of topics including Coptic Christian persecution in Egypt, Islamic terrorists at our southern border, the different perceptions of moderate and radical Muslims, and the political correctness that keeps us from getting at the truth.
John's quote of the week:
"If left to its own devices, the social justice argument and everything as it is framed would collapse from its own logical inconsistency and its deviation from language. The only thing that keeps it going is brute force."
In this week's Extras segment, we play John's latest appearance on Stand Up For The Truth on Q90FM out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. There are a lot of distractions keeping us from focusing on God - money, social media, politics, entertainment. It's difficult, but we are to love the Lord with all our hearts and minds. John takes a look at several of society's distractions.
