We're about a week into the fervor created by a leaked draft of a decision from the Supreme Court that would finally overturn the 1973 decision Roe v. Wade. John and Producer Steve sit down to chat about the illegal protests outside of Justices' homes, the hypocrisy behind the rule of law, the constant end running of the Constitution, and how the Tenth Amendment – central to this potential abortion ruling – always seems to be forgotten. It's important to remember the facts and the truth in every situation. As is becoming more common today, neither of those things are found in this news story.
A Missouri school district is in hot water with parents after a math assignment was found to include questions related to sexual activity. It's one example in one school district, but it points to a larger problem. Joining us today is Andrea Widburg (americanthinker.com), Deputy Editor at American Thinker. CRT has been so demonized that the use of the acronym has begun to fade, but SEL (social and emotional learning) has taken its place – and it contains the exact same material. History books rife with woke lies about the U.S. are part of most curricula today, but parents and even some on the left are beginning to see the truth. Woke messaging is finally being drowned out by conservative pushback. The question is: will it last?
A Biden executive order on gender identity is putting Christian colleges in a predicament. Joining us today for a Sunday extra podcast is Ryan Bangert (adflegal.org), Vice President for Legal Strategy at Alliance Defending Freedom. The executive order would force colleges to admit a male who identifies as a female into a female dorm – something most Christian colleges would not allow. Mr. Bangert discusses the details of the order, his client's (College of the Ozarks) case, and how regardless of the outcome, the process is the punishment.
The first part of the military oath, to support and defend the Constitution, is fairly straightforward. But the second part – to obey the orders of the President and superior officers – is beginning to interfere with the first part. Joining us today is Mike Berry (firstliberty.org), General Counsel for First Liberty Institute and member of the U.S. Marine Corps. He draws on his experience in the military to show the woke policies being put in place, including snitch lines. Also, if military personnel hold certain beliefs, they are now being labeled as extremist and anti-civil rights – beliefs such pro-life, traditional marriage, etc. If we continue down this line, our military enemies may not have to fire a shot to defeat us.
The Equality Act, recently passed in the House and now awaiting debate in the Senate, has proven to be anything but equal. Joining us first this week is Dr. Anne Hendershott (franciscan.edu), Professor of Sociology at Franciscan University. She examines the impact on faith-based universities and institutions, medical doctors, and female athletes. Newly discovered rights not found in the Constitution are now superseding the rights and freedoms that are actually enshrined in the Constitution. This version of equality is trumpeted before the law.
Following the incident at the Capitol in January, we began hearing a lot about sending Trump supported to reeducation camps and deprogramming centers because they suffered from a supposed psychosis. The Soviet Union used to do things like this. Communist China is doing it today. John welcomes Larry Ong (sinoinsider), Senior Analyst at Sino Insider, who describes China's social credit score system and the cancelling of citizens that don't agree with the CCP'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.
Marxism has fully infiltrated the American education system. Is there anything that can be done to stop it? David Schmus (ceai.org), Executive Director of Christian Educators Association International, rounds out our guests this week. He discusses how leftist programs such as the transgender agenda and critical race theory have become prominent in today's schools. But he says there are ways to push back, namely through prayer and a non-offended heart. There is an alternative to the Marxism in today's schools, especially if we have God on our side.
John finishes up this week illustrating how to interact in arguments when the opposing person is acting emotional and irrational. Good advice in a divided world.
The House recently voted in favor of the Equality Act, which has now transitioned to the Senate, but does it actually project equality? Joining us today is Dr. Anne Hendershott (franciscan.edu), Professor of Sociology at Franciscan University, who looks at the flaws of the poorly named Equality Act. She examines the impact on faith-based universities and institutions, medical doctors, and female athletes. Rights that have newly been found, that are not in the Constitution, are now superseding the rights and freedoms that are enshrined there. It’s quickly eroding the freedoms that make this a great country. We must contact our legislators and let them know our position on this bill.
Marxism has fully infiltrated the American education system. Is there anything that can be done to stop it? David Schmus (ceai.org), Executive Director of Christian Educators Association International, joins us today. He lists the many leftist programs in school systems such as the transgender agenda and critical race theory. But he says there are many ways to push back. He describes his organization's initiative to bring God into the schools through prayer and a non-offended heart. There is an alternative to teachers' unions and the way things are in schools. We can fight against Marxism in schools – especially if we have God on our side.
