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.
Division and strife seem to be the norms today. Why is that? Joining us is Steven Yates (lostgenerationphilosopher.com), retired professor of critical thinking in Santiago, Chile. He shows how society is in the middle of a major worldview battle. On one side are those with a Christian worldview and on the other, those with an ideology of naturalistic materialism. Speech and actions surrounding the abortion debate or human rights or just about any other issue can be seen through these worldview differences. Is there a way to bridge the divide?
Stemming from one side of the worldview battle is a constant drumbeat of cancel culture. How did we get to this point where even those who advocate for cancel culture are getting canceled themselves? John and Producer Steve look at the origins of cancel culture, some current examples of it, and the institutions that are spurring it on. It's a product of totalitarianism and a contributor to the stark division in our culture today.
One potential source of the division we're experiencing can be found in establishment politicians. Most of them have been in Congress for decades. Are term limits the solution? Wrapping up the show this week is Jason Church (sentinelsoffreedom.org), Retired U.S. Army Captain and Wisconsin State Chair for U.S. Term Limits. He makes his case for limiting Congress members' terms and since they won't limit their own power, he advocates for a Constitutional convention to solve the problem.
In society today, you have two groups of people coming from two different worldview assumptions, using two different processes of thought, and arriving at two different conclusions. The shouting and chaos that result stems from the battle of those two worldviews. Joining us to dive deep on this is Steven Yates (lostgenerationphilosopher.com), retired professor of critical thinking in Santiago, Chile. He describes the differences between a Christian worldview and a naturalistic materialism worldview. Speech and actions flowing from discussions about abortion or human rights can be seen in these worldview differences. He and John look at possible ways to bridge the gap.
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.
After much speculation and days of nervous liberals weeping and gnashing their teeth, Twitter executives accepted Elon Musk's offer to purchase the online platform. Back with us today is retired entrepreneur Bob Adelmann (thenewamerican.com) to look at Elon Musk, the man, and the runup to his mega-purchase. He discusses the board's decisions once an initial offer was on the table and what happened from there, including the poison pill maneuver and the always hyperbolic reactions from the left. Will Musk stick to his assurances that Twitter will be a free speech platform? Only time will tell.
Last week John gave a history as to how we arrived at our current state in the economy and with the dollar. Today, John continues that historical account, reviewing what President Trump did to repair our economy and how President Biden has undone all of that, causing us to be dependent on autocracies for oil and giving Russia economic advantages that the world would rather it not have. John points out the world runs on oil, but there are forces – namely the climate alarmists – that have always advocated for getting us off of oil by taxing it, thereby eroding our economy, hurting the poor and middle class, and lining their own pockets. They've slowly enacted their plan over the years, leading us to where we are today.
Lots of rumbling in Washington DC and around the country about the future of Kamala Harris in the White House: will she assume the presidency when President Biden can no longer do the job or will she be summarily let go? We don't normally traffic in speculation, but for today, we are breaking out the crystal ball. Back with us to gaze into it and give his outlook is writer and retired entrepreneur Bob Adelmann (thenewamerican.com). He discusses a few theories, but also looks at the geopolitical, economic, and mandate issues surrounding us as we trudge through a weak and unstable leadership in America.
Only three people were by President Donald Trump's side from the time he campaigned to January of this year. One of those three, former assistant to President Trump Peter Navarro (peternavarro.com) is with us today to talk about his new book, titled In Trump Time. He describes how there were already disloyal supposed allies inside the President's perimeter on day one of the administration, scheming to thwart the new president's plans. He also covers the fraudulent election, the problem with both Anthony Fauci and Chief Justice John Roberts, and the need to get to the bottom of what happened in Wuhan.
Eventually, the power, money, and control crowd will use the true believers and discard them when they're no longer useful. Most of the true believers today run on woke ideology. As our first guest this week, we welcome back Jason Hill (jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago. Regardless of what the true believers tell you they are battling against, the power brokers are using them to destroy Western civilization. Most people don't agree with that ideology, but they also don't stand up to it out of fear of being canceled or worse. But standing up is exactly what needs to be done or there will be a fundamental transformation of our national identity.
People in positions of influence have warned America's leaders for years that we are woefully unprepared to fight against China or Russia militarily or in the cyber warfare arena. Have our leaders listened? Back with us this week is David Pyne (emptaskforce.us), Deputy Director of National Operations for the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He points out that our leaders are not listening but he has solutions for them anyway should someone eventually take heed. He lays out several different actions needed to shore up our defenses and hopes that it won't take a devastating attack against our country for them to be implemented.
We had elections this week and John comments on how parents and their strong feelings against CRT had a big impact on the governor's race in Virginia. But before we close out with that, John asks the question: why do Jews, as a voting bloc, tend to overwhelmingly vote for a party that doesn't support Israel or Jewish causes? We invite in Rabbi Dov Fisher (yioc.org) of Young Israel of Orange County, California to discuss. Part of the answer involves the nature of who is and who is not a Jew. He looks at Reform versus Orthodox Judaism as well as the history of anti-semitism.
Yesterday, we aired part one of a two-part conversation with Rabbi Dov Fischer (yioc.org) of Young Israel of Orange County, California. The recorder kept rolling and caught a fascinating post-interview conversation, which we bring to you today. Rabbi Fischer recaps his discussion on why Jews vote for the Democrat party. He and John go on to discuss the media's unending assault on President Trump, calling him a Nazi as well as the indoctrination in academia and educrats calling people racist who don't agree with them. They finish up looking at the January 6 event at the Capitol and why there's such an insistence on calling it an insurrection.
