What does it mean to be an American? What is the DNA of the United States? Joining us today to answer these questions and more is author and cryptography expert Paul Rosenberg (freemansperspective.com). He points out that America has lost its metanarrative. We used to build things, care about things – in essence, we had a unified, proud metanarrative. But then something changed and now our children are taught to hate their own country, to tear things down rather than build them up. Historically, people have come here to invent things, to create lives for themselves, and to realize their potential. That whole culture of belief has slowly eroded into what we're seeing today. The question is: can we get it back?
Language is essential in every culture but the misuse of language has become legion in the media and has at times crossed over to being dangerous. Joining us today is Anne-Christine Hoff (jarvis.edu), Lead Professor of English, Speech, and Spanish at Jarvis Christian College. She looks at how ridiculous language has become and how its misuse deceives people and furthers agendas. Was there an insurrection? No, the ‘insurrectionists' had no weapons. Is it genocide to question a narrative? No, it's just a difference of opinion. It turns out that if you're going to fundamentally transform society, you need to manipulate language to fit your agenda and absolutely allow no criticism in the process.
Before the 2020 election, many prognosticators were betting that the Democrat Party would soon come to an end, citing a variety of reasons. And then the election happened. Does the argument still hold up? Joining us today is Bob Adelmann (thenewamerican.com), retired entrepreneur and conservative columnist. He describes how several analysts, many of whom are democrats, are predicting that unless the focus of the party changes, it will disappear quickly. Why? Radicals are choosing to hyper-focus on issues that voters don't really care about. He goes on to give an early prediction of how many seats the democrats will lose next year in both houses of Congress and asks what republicans are going to do once they regain control.
The Left seems to have cornered the market on protests. What is the best way for the Right to organize demonstrations? Author, media dynamo, and radio talk show host Wayne Allyn Root (rootforamerica.com), is with us today for a brief Sunday extra podcast. He discusses his new book about how to protest and boycott – all peacefully – against woke companies. John also asks him why Jews largely vote for a party that doesn't seem to respect them.
Inequality is a buzzword around the woke campfire these days, but like most issues associated with wokedom, once you peel back the layers, the original argument falls apart. Joining us today is James Rogers (lawliberty.org), Associate Professor of Political Science at Texas A&M University. It's nice to shout that the poor aren't equal to the rich, but few people delve deeper to see that many rich people offer employment, fund charities that help the poor, and keep the economy chugging. And the irony is, the same people who obsess the most about inequality and the poor are usually well-off individuals who never try and solve the problem.
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.
Today we bring you part 1 of a 2-part interview with Neil Kiernan (v-radio.us), host of the V-Radio podcast. He and John discuss the nature of biased journalism, namely how advocacy journalists inject emotion into pieces to keep people interested, but then people act on those emotions, making bad decisions. If we are to reach out to people on the other side of the ideological divide, we need to ignore hyperbolic slogans, be patient, and focus on listening and sticking to the facts. More and more people are sick of all the craziness and irrationality.
Join us tomorrow for part 2 of the interview. John and Neil have a more casual conversation as the recorder kept rolling after the interview was over.
The reason for much of the strife we see today, including what happened in Afghanistan as well as the failure of the woke ideology in the U.S., is the stark difference in right vs left worldviews. First up this week is Jason Ross (liberty.edu), Interim Dean of the Helms School of Government at Liberty University. He looks at one aspect of the leftist worldview – America is evil because of our past with slavery. What sets America apart, though, is that we got rid of slavery. Our founding documents and Judeo-Christian foundation paved the way for this. So the leftist narrative that we are evil because of our past with slavery ignores our history.
As Afghanistan spirals out of control, another country is spiraling down in a different way. Australia has gone into lockdown again, causing some to wonder if the country is turning back into a penal colony. Joining us from Down Under is Matthew Wong (discernable.io), Founder of Discernable media. He describes some of the draconian measures authorities are taking in his country. The government keeps moving the goalposts to hold on to power. Matt and John debate the best way to make people realize that the totalitarians are here.
Finally this week we dive into the world of cyber attacks and espionage. Weifeng Zhong (policychangeindex.org), Senior Research Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University is with us. He discusses what little our government is doing to protect citizens and its own assets from cyber attacks. The powers that be, however, are not seriously looking at the problem because the politically correct thing to do is to not criticize the number one cyber attacker in the world – China.
John finishes up the program with some thoughts on what happened in Afghanistan.
Joining us today is Jason Ross (liberty.edu), Interim Dean of the Helms School of Government at Liberty University. He takes a look at the history of slavery in the U.S. and puts into perspective our country's role in the practice. Slavery has existed in one form or another globally for all of human existence. Yes, even in the U.S. What sets America apart is that we got rid of it. Our founding documents and our Judeo-Christian foundation paved the way for this. And the narrative from CRT peddlers today that we are an irredeemable country because of racism simply does not hold up under the factual reality of our history.
