Globalists have for decades tried to transform the world order and establish a one-world government. And they'll use whatever crisis they can to accomplish that. Back with us today is Alex Newman (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American. He examines events leading up to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, including divisions within the Russian Orthodox Church in both countries. He discusses the fallacy that Christianity and Marxism are similar – a common leftist narrative. He even looks at conflicting messaging by both the right and the left regarding good guys and bad guys in the war. Maybe the only way to truly understand what's going on is to understand how the globalists are using division and confusion with this conflict to realize their plans.
It's that time again for John to be the interviewee. He sits down with Lee Lancaster at KYMS radio for their monthly chat. John and Lee discuss a variety of topics, including the Christian church in Ukraine and Russia amid the conflict, the overall state of different denominations within Russia, and the silencing of conservative voices in the name of combating hate speech. John goes on to give a sobering account of persecuted Christians around the world, specifically in Nigeria, Pakistan, and India.
With war still raging between Russia and Ukraine, how do we look at geopolitics realistically along with the strained global economy? Back with us today is freelance writer Selwyn Duke (selwynduke.com). He examines the situation from Russia's point of view regarding NATO and the country's history with the U.S. From a realistic point of view, if we want to prevail over Russia and China, we need to be economically, morally, and socially superior. The current battle plan doesn't include that philosophy. He also looks at Putin's personal condition and how it could ultimately affect the world. There are many pieces to the geopolitical puzzle; in order to possibly course correct, we need to view them all together rather than separately.
"History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme:" a quote attributed to author Mark Twain. We see today the seedlings of socialism beginning to burst through here in the U.S. and it looks awfully familiar. First up this week is Andrei Znamenski (notesonliberty.com), Professor of History at the University of Memphis. He grew up in the Soviet Union before coming here in 1991 and is an expert in the lead-up to the Bolshevik movement of 1917. He describes the beginning of communism in Russia where they would shut down intellectual debate, control the media, and institute a repressive cancel culture. Where have we heard that before?
The Christian Church has been affected by this change, with some leaders and pastors compromising the Church's doctrines to cater to the secularized culture. Back with us this week after a long hiatus is Ken Ham (answersingenesis.org), CEO and Founder of Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum, and the world-renowned Ark Encounter. He looks to help prepare Christians to take a bold stand, defend God's Word, and take on the worldly culture. The Church should cease compromising because in the troubled times ahead, with the enemies already inside the gates, the solid foundation of Truth will be a much needed weapon.
Finally this week, we take a look at censorship and the violation of the free speech rights of millions of Americans. Wrapping up the show is May Davis (iwf.org), Visiting Fellow at the Independent Women's Forum. She discusses President Trump's class action lawsuit against social media companies, the need to apply fair rules to everyone equally, and how the repercussions of Big Tech's censorship could help change the culture and founding principles of the country.
Every time socialism has been tried, it has failed and it has failed partly because government tried planning every aspect of everyone's life: an endeavor doomed to crash and burn every time. Joining us today is Andrei Znamenski (notesonliberty.com), Professor of History at the University of Memphis. He moved here after his childhood in Russia and has studied the lead-up to the Bolshevik movement. He describes the beginning of communism in Russia and how the powers that be shut down intellectual debate, controlled the media, and instituted a repressive cancel culture. I think it's obvious the U.S. is on a very similar path today. Consider us warned.
Rules for thee but not for me. That's the mantra underlying America's new woke belief system. Joining us today is freelance writer and author Larry Eubank (larryeubank.com) to discuss his new article Wokeism: The New American Orthodoxy. He looks at how the laws and rules when applied to radical leftists are ignored, because for them, the woke orthodoxy trumps everything – including the rule of law. But conservatives are expected to live up to those same laws. For every double standard on the surface, there's an undeclared single standard underneath. And that's the orthodoxy.
Following the incident at the Capitol in January, we began hearing a lot about reeducation camps and deprogramming centers for Trump supporters because they suffered from a supposed psychosis. Sounds an awful lot like what the Soviet Union used to do – and what Communist China does today. Joining us today is Larry Ong (sinoinsider.com), Senior Analyst at Sino Insider, who goes over China's social credit score system, and the CCP's practice of cancelling citizens that don't agree with the party's narrative. Playing a big part in the indoctrination is the media, who, like the communist party, distort the facts to tell their own narrative. Media in the U.S. seem to be mirroring this brainwashing technique.
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?
Our biggest geopolitical threat today is not Russia as the media would have you believe; it is China. Joining us is Captain James Fanell (www.gcsp.ch), Retired U.S. Naval Intelligence Director, who draws on his experience and knowledge of China, examining China's goal of world domination by 2049, their battle with us in the space race, and their military strategy around the world.
This week we recognized the 75th anniversary of the dropping of the first atomic bomb on Japan in 1945. Tom Lewis (www.tomlewis4.wixsite.com), retired officer of the Royal Australian Navy, joins us to discuss his new book, Atomic Salvation, about how dropping the A-bomb may have saved millions of lives. The narrative about whether or not it was a good idea to drop the bombs has changed dramatically over the years.
Next, we play a clip from John's appearance on KYMS radio last weekend where he and host, Lee Lancaster, chat about the church and how it has handled crises, both in the past and in today's turbulent times.
There is a reason for the turbulent times, but it can be a bit overwhelming to try and make sense of it all. We wrap up the show this week with John's boralogue, where he details the stages Marxists and postmodernists go through to destroy our country. It's getting to a point where we can no longer hunker down and hope the chaos passes us by. We need to stand up for what is right before it's too late.
Seventy-five years ago today, the U.S. dropped the first of two atom bombs on Japan, eventually bringing about the end of WWII. Tom Lewis, retired officer of the Royal Australian Navy, joins us to discuss his new book, Atomic Salvation, about how dropping the A-bomb may have saved millions of lives. There was debate and secrecy involved in the operation leading up to the bombs dropping.
Dr. Lewis looks at how the narrative flipped from dropping the bombs was a good thing to it being absolutely horrible. It has largely to do with the passage of time and forgetting the horrors of war. Young people are not taught how horrible totalitarian governments have been. It makes them harder to recognize when they begin to form again.
