The political atmosphere in America has become toxic in the past two decades, dividing this country and making virtually everyone angry. With us today is Dr. Peter Wood (nas.org), President of the National Association of Scholars. He discusses his new book, titled Wrath: America Enraged. He looks at the kind of anger we see in politics today, which differs from the protest anger of the 1960s. The Left today seems to be angry all the time, often in an effort to transform society. And because the Left largely controls the levers of communication, they have censored those on the Right. The Right, then, becomes angry because normal avenues of speech and debate are plugged up and people are being cancelled. The rage is building and the clock is ticking as to when it will boil over.

How did we ever get to a point where we have such rampant cancel culture in Western civilization? Opening the show this week, John looks at the change in education over the past three decades from logical thinking to consensus thinking. As a result, people have built safe spaces when they are faced with facts antithetical to their worldview. Shaming us isn't working anymore so they have moved on the next step – cancel culture.

What are the consequences of unfettered immigration and the reluctance to identify problems due to political correctness? Christine Douglass-Williams (www.frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine, joins us to discuss open immigration in her home country of Canada, how certain organizations are able to take advantage of leftist policies, and the possibility of terrorists entering the U.S. along the border with Canada.

John finishes up this week examining two important topics. First, he tackles the economic reality facing the U.S. and the world along with the traps and pitfalls that mark the leadup to a socialist takeover of an economy. Finally, he covers how the climate change narrative is failing after emissions were lowered this year, but at the cost of lives and the economy. It doesn't stop die-hard climate alarmists, though, from doing anything they can to keep the narrative alive.
