John often tackles the question: how did we get to where we are today? That's an important question, but so is: where are we heading? To lead off the show this week, John combines the two questions, looking at all the puzzle pieces affecting us today. He tackles the situation with Russia and Ukraine as well as inflation, oil prices, climate change, the push to discontinue fossil fuels, and the state of U.S. currency as it relates to the world. He shows how we got to where we are today and where we could end up tomorrow.

To better understand the bigger picture, today's millennials and gen-zees need to shed the progressive ideology they're taught in schools and adopt a facts over feelings approach to thinking. Joining us today is Jason Hill (jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago. He discusses politics, education, and culture and gives us hope in the face of the discouragement we see every day. He relates his experience with students and how many of them are beginning to wake up to the fact that something is wrong and maybe the truth really is more important than feelings.

John finishes up recapping the current situation we find ourselves in, once again putting the puzzle pieces together with the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the global economy, and the always pervasive climate change narrative. We are flying into a perfect storm; a storm caused by decades of insane policies. But God is our anchor and our hope and we should always pray for His guidance in our lives.

A large percentage of college students are being taught progressive ideology and, as a result, focus more on feelings and opinions than on facts and truth. Today, John catches up with Jason Hill (jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago, who interacts with students on a daily basis. If we look at not only education, but also politics and culture, it's really easy to become discouraged and think of the future as bleak. Is there hope? Professor Hill suggests that in order to counter progressives, the right needs to advocate for their principles rather than always being on defense. And he sees hope in university classrooms: more and more students today are waking up to the fact that something is wrong and maybe, just maybe, the truth is more important than feelings.

You are going to confront two things during your life: reality and God.  Those confrontations are assured, whether we like it or not, so with that in mind, it's important to know what life is all about.  John flies solo today, taking a look at those two confrontations amid the avalanche of lies and blizzard of ignorance we see in the West today.  Caught up in the blizzard and the avalanche are many young people who are being taught to embrace a narrative or a truth claim, regardless of whether it's actually true or not.  John illustrates how Marxist thought is completely antithetical to Christmas: one has to be true while the other has to be false.  John reads from the Gospel of John showing how Christmas definitely wins that battle.

Misuse of the Rule of Law – Again

Broadcast Running Time: 1:18:55

In the case against Michael Flynn, what can the misuse of the law by the Justice Department and the FBI teach us? In this week's boralogue, John looks at the erosion of absolute truth by postmodernism and how that has led to a severe lowering of absolute standards, both in the media and within government. Corruption results and reform is needed. That reform can only be an insistence on the truth.

In the wake of the government's current misuse of the law, John recalls a 2013 interview with Harvey Silverglate that shows that what happened now is nothing new. There are enough rules and regulations on the books to make someone guilty if the government needs them to be.

Christian churches and schools have been slowly infiltrated by a progressive ideology. Attorney and writer Mark Pulliam (www.misruleoflaw.com) joins us to discuss how a woke ideology along with Marxist economics is being taught in university religious studies programs, using faith to propagate progressive narratives.

They say you shouldn't cry over spilt milk, but many are doing just that as some farmers are forced to throw away their dairy products. Here to give his expert analysis on this is former dairy farmer and good friend to John and the show, Jack Beukelman. He shares the ins and outs of the dairy industry and the problem with oversupply during a crisis.
