Eliminating cash and transitioning to an all-digital currency may make some people nervous, especially if the digital currency is backed by the government. Leading off the show this week is silver expert David Morgan (themorganreport.com), author of the Morgan Report. He and John look at the possibility that the U.S. government could shift to digital currency, giving them control over all transactions. Bitcoin, the current leader in digital money, will either face off against the establishment or be co-opted by it. David also predicts what could happen with inflation and our massive debt.

We then move in-house with a conversation between John and Producer Steve. They examine the media's lack of journalism in parroting the administration's wavering virus messaging as well as using conflicting scientific papers in the virus and vaccine battle. They also discuss the tendency for the truth to win out in the end, how mandates violate freedom, and even some unprofessional undercover activity on the part of federal law enforcement.

Finally, we welcome to the show Mike Berry (firstliberty.org), General Counsel for First Liberty Institute and member of the U.S. Marine Corps. It is getting harder for members of the armed forces to honor the military oath. It says you are to support and defend the Constitution, but it also says you are to obey the orders of the President and superior officers. With woke leadership demonizing conservative military members for their beliefs, eventually our enemies will defeat us without firing a shot.

The first part of the military oath, to support and defend the Constitution, is fairly straightforward. But the second part – to obey the orders of the President and superior officers – is beginning to interfere with the first part. Joining us today is Mike Berry (firstliberty.org), General Counsel for First Liberty Institute and member of the U.S. Marine Corps. He draws on his experience in the military to show the woke policies being put in place, including snitch lines. Also, if military personnel hold certain beliefs, they are now being labeled as extremist and anti-civil rights – beliefs such pro-life, traditional marriage, etc. If we continue down this line, our military enemies may not have to fire a shot to defeat us.

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.

There is a stark contrast between how the Chinese Communist Party is handling geopolitics and what the American public knows about it. Joining us today is Seth Cropsey (hudson.org), Director of the Center for American Seapower at the Hudson Institute. He discusses how China's leader, Xi Jinping, is laying out in detail his country's plans in regards to Taiwan, the U.S., and the world. No one in our military, though, seems to be listening. Our military is focusing on trivial things and the media is choosing to air segments meant to divide us further. China's path to world domination won't be easy, as has been indicated in speeches by Xi, but the U.S. turning a blind eye to reality will not hinder them. Eventually reality becomes real. Will we face a knockout punch or will we wake up before that happens?

A military should be focused on defense of a country and being better than the enemy. But our military has begun to focus on social engineering issues instead. First up this week is Retired Air Force Colonel Mike Angley, who served 25 years in the Office of Special Investigations for the Air Force. He looks at new woke policies in the military, including snitch phone lines and diversity training. Many of these policies would lower morale, discipline, and unit cohesion. In other words, defense and being better than our enemies have been overtaken by political correctness.

And when it comes to government policies, our current administration is reverting back to Obama-era programs, despite their previous failures. Back with us today is Ken Timmerman (kentimmerman.com), CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran. He examines the Biden Middle East policy, especially where it concerns Iran, and how Iran has not had to concede anything in a newly resurrected Iran Deal. He also looks at the future of the Abraham Accords now that the Trump administration is out of power.

We may never know exactly where the Covid virus came from, but it's looking more like it could have originated in a lab in China. Rounding out the show this week is Dr. Roger Klein (rogerdklein.com), Chief Medical Officer at the cancer genomic company Omniseq. There will be investigations into the virus's origins, but will anything come of it? Will we learn anything from the past year? Dr. Klein discusses supply chain deficiencies, the need to rely solely on science and not politics, and whether lockdowns were the right move.

The U.S. military has begun to focus on social engineering issues rather than the concerns of a military. As a result, we are weakening our global presence, damaging morale, and setting ourselves up for future failure. Joining us today is Retired Air Force Colonel Mike Angley, who served 25 years in the Office of Special Investigations for the Air Force. He looks at the new woke policies in the military, including snitch phone lines, which would lower morale, discipline, and unit cohesion. It fosters an atmosphere where one's constitutional rights are violated. As a member of the Armed Forces, it makes it tough to uphold your oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States if the military hierarchy is ignoring that Constitution.
