John guests on Stand up for the Truth with Dave Fiorazo at Q90FM (q90fm.com) in Green Bay, Wisconsin. They discuss the changes John has seen in news reporting over 50 years, as well as the most recent news events, and what this means especially for the freedom of religion. Included is an examination of the failures of churches to counteract indoctrination present in public schools for decades, and what actions should be taken now to prevent large numbers of youth from being siphoned from the faith.
On June 11, here in North Idaho, a group of alleged white supremacists were arrested at an LGBTQ pride event. Was this a false flag event meant to further a hate narrative or was it the real thing? Back with us today is William Jasper (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American Magazine. He describes what happened in Idaho and how, in his view, it was similar to January 6 and Charlottesville as far as being a false flag event. It sounds like a conspiracy theory, but so many of those keep coming true, you just never know.
Narratives are beginning to fail and what were once considered conspiracy theories by those in government and the media are now emerging as facts. First up this week, we look at our armed forces. Jay Richards (heritage.org), Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, joins us to examine the widespread rejection of religious exemptions for Covid shots in the military. Is there a hatred of religion or are they trying to purge politically incorrect men and women from our armed services? Whatever the case, our military members are fighting back in court. There is no Covid-19 exemption to the First Amendment.
Another failed narrative from the media is the insistence that January 6 was an insurrection. Even the FBI has rejected that. An independent journalist present at the U.S. Capitol a year ago recorded the event on his video camera. That journalist, Steve Baker (thepragmaticconstitutionalist.com), is with us this week. He recounts what he saw that day and how nine months later, federal authorities are charging him with a number of crimes. The purveyors of narrative never like it when anyone challenges them.
Finally, we travel north of the border to look at Canada and the failing narrative of diversity and inclusion – by those who practice neither. Rounding out the show this week is Christine Douglass-Williams (frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine. She recalls how a difference in ideological opinion surrounding the Israel-Palestinian issue almost got a woman kicked off a school board for “Islamophobic” comments. This points to a larger problem of condoning anti-semitism in the name of diversity and inclusion.
An independent journalist present at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, recorded the event on his video camera. Now, he's being charged by the federal government with a number of crimes, not the least of which is racketeering. That journalist, Steve Baker (thepragmaticconstitutionalist.com), is with us today. He recounts what he saw just over a year ago and discusses what the government is doing to him now and why – they don't like what he has to say about January 6 nor his footage of that day. He also discusses those who have been incarcerated and held for the past year with no trial.
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.
