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.
Whenever you are faced with an enemy intent on destroying you and your way of life, it's important to understand their mindset in order to find the best way to defeat them.
On today's podcast, we bring you part 1 of a 2-part interview with Evan Sayet (evansayet.com), author and former Hollywood liberal and insider. He discusses his new book The Woke Supremacy, including the three stages of a supremacist movement, the tactics of the woke crowd, and the different laws of the unified field theory of liberalism. Fascinating conversation today! Join us tomorrow for part 2 of the interview where Mr. Sayet explains, among other things, why the woke crowd is so virulently hateful in calling people racists and Nazis.
The Chinese Communist Party and its leader, Xi Jinping, have told us what their geopolitical and military plans are. Is anyone in our country listening? First up this week is Seth Cropsey (hudson.org), Director of the Center for American Seapower at the Hudson Institute. The Chinese navy is building ships at a rapid rate and mapping out strategy regarding Taiwan and the U.S. Our military, on the other hand, is worried about gender pronouns. There are weaknesses within China, if only we would recognize them and exploit them. Eventually reality becomes real. Will we face a knockout punch or will we wake up before that happens?
Is there any hope with America's education system? Indoctrination and incorrect narrative-driven history is running amok. Joining us this week is Jacob Howland (city-journal.org), Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Tulsa. He draws on his many years of experience in higher learning to show how educrats are removing classical education from the classrooms and replacing it with slogans and leftist ideologies. So is there any hope? Some teachers and many parents have now recognized what's going on and they're fighting back. Let's hope it's not too late.
One of the ways that parents are fighting back is at school board meetings. Why are they angry? Three words: critical race theory. Wrapping up the show this week is Julie Gunlock (iwf.org), Director of the Center for Progress and Innovation at the Independent Women's Forum. Many school boards blindly support critical race theory, but some board members have gone so far as to lash out at parents because they oppose CRT. Those same parents have now woken up and are pushing back – some by running to replace these board members.
We've heard about critical race theory and woke indoctrination in schools, but what, if anything, are school boards doing about it? Here today is Julie Gunlock (iwf.org), Director of the Center for Progress and Innovation at the Independent Women's Forum. She describes the outrage that some parents are expressing after learning about what their children are being exposed to in the classroom. School boards have been largely obstinate in their support of CRT and have at times lashed out against the parents for their opposition. But parents are finally waking up, pushing back, and even running to replace these board members.
Education was supposed to provide us with stellar learning, but unfortunately that is not happening. Is there any hope? Joining us today is Jacob Howland (city-journal.org), Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Tulsa. He draws on his many years of experience in higher learning to show how classical education has been slowly removed from curricula only to be replaced by slogans and inaccurate history. The culprits are more the educrats than teachers, but many teachers go along with it. So is there any hope? Now that the plan has been thoroughly exposed, some teachers and many parents are pushing back to reclaim what education was always supposed to be.
When you get two radio veterans from opposite ends of the world with nearly a century of experience between them together, you get a fascinating conversation. John welcomes New Zealand radio legend Leighton Smith (www.newstalkzb.co.nz) to the show this week for an extended discussion on the state of the world today. They cover many topics, including Marxism's infiltration of the West, the real definition of truth, and the media's blatant narratives against the Right, as well as New Zealanders' battles with politically correct policies.
The leftists have permeated our institutions and our governments and many in Western countries have allowed it to happen. As John says, we have been very busy chewing out our guts and then assuming freedom will continue to stand. But when you use the very benefits of the society you're trying to destroy, the society itself will not stand.
In order to fight misinformation and conspiracy theories, Microsoft has teamed with other companies to trace online content back to its original author in what some people are calling a huge setback in data privacy. Back with us is Russ White (www.rule11.tech), nationwide expert in network architecture, who details the plans of this new cabal. Even if these companies have good intentions, electronic chips can be hacked and backdoor programs can be installed that would completely undermine the original intent of their plan.
Yesterday, we aired part 1 of John's interview with Leighton Smith (newstalkzb.co.nz), long-time radio talk show host in New Zealand and host of the Leighton Smith podcast. In today's interview conclusion, the two veteran radio broadcasters discuss why those who are woke are so sensitive regarding important topics, media narratives against the right, and New Zealand's battle with political correctness and the cancellation of charter schools there. John answers as many questions as he asks as the two interviewers live up to their inquisitive reputations.
Apostasy used to mean abandoning or renouncing the faith. Today, many churches are turning woke – a modern day renunciation that isn't looked upon as apostasy. Duke Pesta (fpeusa.org), Director of the Freedom Project Academy, is back with us for an extended interview this week to discuss the battle between Christianity and Marxism and why they are so antithetical. We're in a spiritual war but many church leaders are too weak or too ignorant of Christian history to fight this battle. Will we be strong enough to fight? When the persecution comes to our country and our churches, where will we stand?
How did the church – and our society – end up where we are today? John finishes up the show this week looking at how the globalists have moved us along these past several decades and where we are right now. The globalists are they're planning to reset things to a pre-Trump erosion of national sovereignty as soon as they can. So it may be a new environment we're walking into, but the work of God's Kingdom continues and it will be up to us, as the world aligns against the church, to figure out our place in it.
There has to be a way to fight back against the politicization of public schools. Larry Sand (www.ctenhome.org), President of the California Teachers Empowerment Network, joins us to discuss the indoctrination he saw a bit during his tenure as a teacher and a lot since he has retired. In order to stop this, parents need to step up. Check with your child to see what they are being taught and if it doesn't sit well with you, visit school officials or the board.
