Israel is very much in the news right now but the media narratives are not matching the facts on the ground. John flies solo today, giving you the truth rather than the spin machine. He looks at the Temple Mount riots, the violence in East Jerusalem, and rocket attacks from Gaza into Israel and Israel's response. It's important to understand the truth of what's happening, both geopolitically and historically.
With another shooting in Minneapolis this past week, new calls for defunding the police are being resurrected. Randy Peterson (texaspolicy.com), Senior Researcher at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, joins us today to discuss the defunding movement and the inevitable consequences that will stem from it. Police stop being proactive, crime rates increase, and decisions are second-guessed in the field. The majority of people don't want defunding, especially minorities, so why is it such a seemingly popular narrative?
John finishes up today's podcast by looking at how we went from policing is good and protective to its systemically racist and needs to be abolished.
The country needs reform – the question is how will that be accomplished? Joining us today is Larry Klayman (freedomwatchusa.org), Founder and Chairman of Freedom Watch, who shares details from his new book, It Takes a Revolution. The American people can take back this country from the corrupt bureaucrats by rising up and forcing change. He looks at citizen juries and citizen's arrests as good starting points. What we're experiencing now may very closely mirror the days leading up to 1776 – the people are not represented by their leaders.
