Socialism

Russia, Ukraine, and China are heating up geopolitically while the U.S. seems to be treading water. Who's in charge here? Defense expert Reuben Johnson is back with us this week from his vantage point in Kiev, Ukraine. He looks at the implications of Russia's military buildup on the border of his country as well as China's aerial aggression above Taiwan. He also analyzes Russia's tactics with the EU and NATO as well how they view the current U.S. administration. Critical question: can the Biden administration handle not only the many domestic issues it faces but also two super powers encroaching on other countries' lands? Not only do we know the answer to that question, but so does the world.

The U.S. seems to be clearly headed toward a totalitarian state. Can we stop it? Believe it or not, we can learn from the coup that ousted the Shah of Iran in 1979. Shahram Hadian (tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth in Love Ministry, joins us to give a history of what happened leading up to and during the 1979 revolution in Iran. Calls were made for free education and health care, media began favoring a particular side, and elections were rigged along with candidates and even outcomes. Sound familiar? Will we end up as Iran did or will we fight back and keep history from repeating itself.

John finishes up this week's program recommending that people ignore the silly pablum of the mainstream media and look at the reality of the world we live in. We need to recognize what's really going on, focus on it, and then formulate a plan of action on how to deal with it.

John has returned as a guest on Stand Up for the Truth, a Christian program broadcast on Q90FM out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Yesterday, John joined host David Fiorazo, to discuss a variety of topics, including the nature of woke-ism and how it will devour everyone in its path eventually. He also looks at how European socialist ideals are infiltrating America and the failure of both the media and education in this country.

What can the United States learn from the coup that ousted the Shah of Iran in 1979? Who better to answer that than an Iranian-born, now U.S. citizen and Christian pastor? Shahram Hadian (tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth in Love Project, joins us today. He gives a history of what happened leading up to and during the 1979 revolution in Iran. Calls were made for free education and health care, media began favoring a particular side, and elections were rigged along with candidates and even the outcomes. After the revolution, those who advocated for it were found on the wrong side of power. We are seeing eerily similar events unfolding in the United States right now and it's not unfair to assume that we could end up in a similar place as Iran did post-revolution. That is, unless we push back against the madness and keep history from repeating itself.

On today's podcast, John dives into the economic reality facing not only the United States, but also the rest of the world.  He looks at the trend of global central banks toward inflation, the outlook of things financially, both long-term and just over the horizon, and the traps and pitfalls that mark the lead-up to a Socialist takeover of an economy.  So will it be an absolutely horrible future for the world?  No, but it is wise to keep smart counsel, recognize the signs moving forward, and act to try to mitigate the pain that will be coming.

End of an Interregnum?

It has been a very busy news week, so John will tackle two stories in this week's boralogue. First up is the Coronavirus, which originated in the central China city of Wuhan. John looks at the facts and how it's possible that this could be a virus weaponization situation that got out of control. He then pivots to the new peace plan, recounting a few details and whether or not the Palestinians will eventually come to the table.

How does socialism, which fails every time it is implemented, become so popular with media and with students in the West? Answer: lack of education about it. Joshua Philipp (www.theepochtimes.com), Senior Editor at The Epoch Times newspaper, joins us to give a history of Marxism and what it does to a society and how communism tries to supplant religion by becoming its own so-called morality system.

John takes a moment, as Brexit has finally come, to give a backgrounder on the European Union. He plays Nigel Farage's farewell speech at the EU Parliament this week, highlighting the group's lust for power, their ability to thwart the will of the people by ignoring referenda, and the rise of pro-sovereignty and populist movements in the West.

Finally, we welcome author and retired businessman Jim Hollingsworth (www.co2coalition.org) who discusses his new climate manual that clearly explains several issues surrounding the climate change controversy. Get the manual in kindle or paperback on Amazon here.

John's quote of the week:
"If religion, meaning the religion of the people, does not act as the value system of government, then the government will create its own value system and force it down on the people. That's what you're seeing in China today and we're teeter-tottering with it here in this country."

On this week's extra segment, we dive into the topic of socialism with two boralogues from years past. First up is an extended boralogue from June 2008 where John outlines the three steps of socialism. That is followed up by a boralogue from September 2009 covering how socialism has affected our education and permeates both sides of the aisle in politics.
