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.
If you put your kids in secular, atheist, Marxist seminaries (aka public schools), don't be surprised when you get secular, atheist, Marxists out. What is the best alternative? First up this week, we welcome Chaplain E. Ray Moore (exodusmandate.org), Co-Founder of Frontline Ministries. He describes what his organization is doing to get children out of public education and into private, Christian schools. He reveals his opinions on vouchers, charter schools, and running for school boards. He also urges pastors to get off the sidelines and defend the truth and biblical education.
What would America's founding fathers say about the state of not only education, but our entire country today? Joining us is author Steven Rabb (thefoundersspeech.com), who just wrote a book describing how everything the founders warned us against is now happening. There is a constant end running of the Constitution by those in the swamp who strenuously fight against reform. This has resulted in the chaos we're now seeing. How do we stop it? Return to the founders' idea of what the United States should be.
Finally this week, we dive into the future of the world's economy. Will it be full of digital currency and the problems that come with it? Joining us to chat about that is Chris Brady (chrisbrady.com), Founder and CEO of Life Platform. He looks at the future of Bitcoin, the plans of the world's central banks and the inevitable rollout of debt to create digital currencies. He also examines the dangers of going with a digital currency, especially the tracking aspect and the programmability standards.
Referencing public schools, John has often said that if you put your kids in secular, atheist, Marxist seminaries, don't be surprised when you get secular, atheist, Marxists out. Joining us today is E. Ray Moore (exodusmandate.org), Co-Founder and Board President of Frontline Ministries. He describes what his organization is doing to get children out of public education and into private, Christian schools. He discusses the futility of running for school boards, the disadvantages of vouchers and charter schools, and the need for Christian schools to operate free from any government control – including funding. And pastors need to step up, defend the truth, and back biblical education.
Throughout all of history, governments have always tended toward corruption. It's human nature. It's also why our founding fathers created the government they did. Joining us today is author Steven Rabb (thefoundersspeech.com) to discuss how everything the founders warned us against is happening. He looks at the constant end running of the Constitution to prop up an ideology, the intense pushback by those in the swamp against attempts at reform, and the move away from public education into private or home schools. Our country is slipping precariously close to the edge of chaos: returning to the founders' idea of the U.S. is the best way to keep that from happening.
The First Amendment to our Constitution states in part that Congress shall not prohibit the free exercise of religion. One government committee is doing just that – in the name of morality. First up this week, John welcomes Andrew Beckwith (mafamily.org), President of the Massachusetts Family Institute. Vida Real, an Hispanic church in Massachusetts, has applied to open a Bible-based school. Even though they have met the requirements, the government panel in charge of approving such requests has denied them. One panel member thinks approval would not be the moral thing to do. For woke leftists, their ideology is a religion – one that always seems to be at odds with Christianity.
So in that case, a woke leftist appealed to morality, but how do people with no sense of morality get away with that? Next up this week, we talk with Rabbi Chananya Weissman (chananyaweissman.com), Founder of End the Madness in Jerusalem. He looks at the nature of morality as it has always been defined and shows how leftist woke religion is diametrically opposed to Judeo-Christian values. He also gives an update on the state of cancel culture and wokeism in Israel.
Finally this week, we transition to the topic of climate change with Dr. Judith Curry (judithcurry.com), President of the Climate Forecast Applications Network. If we're going to talk about climate change, the discussion must be sane and rational – not apocalyptic and ridiculous like so many claims today. Solutions must come from the local level, not a one-size fits all panacea from the globalists. Of course the reason why the conversation trends toward hysteria is so that the power, money, and control folks can enact their plans.
How many times have we heard that life as we know it will end in the next few years unless we fix the climate? Or carbon dioxide is killing us? We need rational debate not hysterics. Joining us today is climate expert Judith Curry (judithcurry.com), President of the Climate Forecast Applications Network. She posits that we need first to recognize that climate change is not an immediate threat. From there, we should get the facts straight and keep politics out of the discussion. Any solution should be discussed rationally at the local level, not a one-size fits all approach from the global level. We all know, however, why the powers that be are allowing the global climate hysteria narrative to move forward – power, money, and control.
We've discussed before the nefarious nature of ESG scores, which are social credit scores for businesses. Today we look at how these socialist standards would affect the oil industry. First up this week is author and scholar John Horvat (returntoorder.org). He examines the recent rule proposed by the Securities and Exchange Commission that would force public companies to disclose climate risks involved in their operation. This rule, motivated by ideology, not economics, gives the impression that America is weak and for the oil industry, will result in declined oil production at a time when energy needs are on the rise.
We then transition to the education arena, showing how dysfunctional our schools have become, even in conservative areas. John first chats with Adam Guillette (aim.org), President of Accuracy in Media. He looks at how CRT is still being taught in schools – even in red states and even after parents succeeded in removing it from curricula. Teachers have admitted that no matter what happens, they'll just close the classroom door and teach what they want.
How did our education system get to the point where teachers choose to teach CRT or discuss sexual topics with children? We welcome two guests: Richard Hawkins (christedu.org), retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force and Dr. Max Lyons (face.net), Director of Teaching Services at the Foundation for American Christian Education. They reveal how teachers' colleges are preparing educators to indoctrinate students with socialist lesson plans. Dr. Lyons shows how his foundation has developed a biblical approach to teaching.
We wrap up the show this week with a positive message. People around the world need to hear and read the Word of God and one of those places is in South America. Joining John is David Witt (spritofmartyrdom.com), CEO of Spirit of Martyrdom International. He describes the need for God's Word in Venezuela and Colombia and what his organization is doing to provide Bibles and leadership in churches there. God has begun a revival of the Christian Church and a renewal of hearts, including those in hard-to-reach tribal areas.
We have three guests on today's program. First up is Adam Guillette (aim.org), President of Accuracy in Media. He looks at how CRT is still being taught in schools – even in red states – and when parents catch on, the educrats rebrand it and keep going with the same material. Sadly, reforms can be sought, but teachers have admitted, regardless of what happens, they will just close the classroom door and teach what they want anyway.
We then transition to a two-guest round table with Richard Hawkins (christedu.org), retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force and Dr. Max Lyons (face.net), Director of Teaching Services at the Foundation for American Christian Education. They discuss how teachers are being taught in colleges different techniques in instructing children to be socialists. Dr. Lyons shows how his foundation has developed a biblical approach to teaching.
The Biden administration is expected to lift Title 42 restrictions at the U.S. border on May 23, which will trigger more migration than we've ever seen, some predict. Joining us today is Todd Bensman (toddbensman.com), Senior National Security Fellow with the Center for Immigration Studies. He examines the problems with our completely open and collapsing border, how migrant criminals are gaming the system, not just on the southern border but at our northern one as well, and what exactly Title 42 is. Title 42 is not related to immigration, but once it's lifted, our already historic immigration problems will become so much worse.
People around the world need to hear and read the Word of God, but rarely do we talk about that need in South America. Joining us today is David Witt (spritofmartyrdom.com), Chief Executive Officer of Spirit of Martyrdom International. He describes the need for God's Word in Venezuela and Colombia and what his organization is doing to provide Bibles and leadership in churches there. God is using the oppressive economic and cultural environment caused by the socialist government in Venezuela to begin a revival of the Christian Church and a renewal of the hearts of citizens, including those in hard-to-reach tribal areas.
