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.
Does history really repeat itself and can we learn from it? David Satter (davidsatter.com), Editorial Author at the Wall Street Journal, joins us to report on his experiences as a journalist in 1970s and '80s Soviet Russia and how it compares to America today. In both eras, media engaged in pushing an ideology instead of reporting the facts. In totalitarian societies, media and others in power threaten to disrupt your future, through cancel culture or other means, forcing people to self-censor. It happened in the Soviet Union. It's beginning to happen here.
Tuesday saw Georgia fall to the democrats and Wednesday saw chaos in our nation's capital. Is there hope for America's future? John, Carol, and Steve sit down for a studio roundtable to look at where we've been and where we could be headed. Just like in the 1770s, the people today are not being represented by their government officials. Is there anything we can do? Will it take a revolution or can we solve things peacefully? It's tough to see but there is hope for the future.
How do globalists go about furthering their agenda? They have a long rolling plan that's easy to spot if you know what to look for. John finishes out the show this week looking at the EU's plan to erode national sovereignty, doing it slowly until their objective is met. And he explains how change agents work and what to look for when they come to your town. Whether it be the EU or Marxists working in this country, gradual pressure is put on us until the pain of leaving their oppressive regime is greater than the pain of caving to their agenda.
Does history really repeat itself? Can we learn from it? David Satter (davidsatter.com), Editorial Author at the Wall Street Journal, joins us to report on his experiences as a journalist in Soviet Russia in the 1970s and 1980s – and compare it to America today. In the Soviet Union, media perpetuated the government narrative so much so that the people knew that news stories weren't true. Today in the U.S., we read or hear a story and immediately think, based on the media outlet, that an ideology is being pushed instead of facts. Also, in totalitarian societies, there is such a threat to disrupt your future, through cancel culture or force, that people self-censor and fall in line. It happened in the Soviet Union. We're seeing it begin to happen here. Can we learn from this in time to stop it?
