As Afghanistan spirals out of control, another country is spiraling down in a different way. Australia has gone into lockdown again, causing some to wonder if the country is turning back into a penal colony. Joining us from Down Under is Matthew Wong (discernable.io), Founder of Discernable media. He describes some of the draconian measures authorities are taking in his country. The government keeps moving the goalposts to hold on to power, causing the Overton Window to shift at a rapid rate. Matt and John debate the best way to wake people up and make them realize that the totalitarians aren't on their way – they're here.
We have two guests for you today. First, the moniker of 'racist' or 'white supremacist' is beginning to lose its effectiveness as many people are beginning to realize the tactics of the Left. AJ Swinson (newjourneypac.org), Chief of Staff of the New Journey Political Action Committee, joins us to explore the real history of racism in this country. She also explains why black voters choose democrats even though that party doesn’t seem to reflect their values.
We then move to our second interview. The erroneously named "For the People Act" – the bill that would have federalized elections – was killed in the Senate, but it threatens to pop up again if the filibuster is removed. Here today is Tara Ross (saveourstates.com), Advisor at Save Our States. She discusses the checks and balances that keep absolute power from any one branch of government, 2020 election-related procedures that did not go through the proper channels, and egregious overreach by governors during the pandemic.
Just a few years ago, monuments or statues on public property that denoted any quote or symbol of religion were taken down by mandate of the courts. Roger Byron (www.firstliberty.org), Senior Counsel for the First Liberty Institute, explains how a recent case set a precedent stopping the removal of public religious statues or monuments, upholding religious freedom.
John finishes up the podcast today imploring education reform because the stages of a totalitarian takeover of this country are underway and if education remains as it is, our children will grow up embracing and defending that takeover.
