Happy New Year, everyone!

Christine Douglass-WilliamsWe will forego the boralogue this week and jump right in with Christine Douglass-Williams (www.frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine, who describes her trip to the International Conference on Christian Persecution in Budapest, Hungary last month. She looks at Hungary’s efforts to establish itself as a Christian nation and examines the truth, not the PC narrative, surrounding Islam and the persecution of not only Christians, but also reformer Muslims.

Dexter Van ZileAnti-semitism exists in various subsets of society, including among famous people in the media. Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst at CAMERA, reveals how one famous radio host has seemingly come out against Jewish concerns. He also discusses the various sources for anti-semitism, both on the right and the left.

Burt Yellin Roeh IsraelWe finish out the program this week playing a sermon given by Rabbi Burt Yellin of the Messianic Jewish church Roeh Israel (www.roehisrael.org) in Denver, Colorado earlier this month. He gives examples of leaders who have done great things but were also absolute scoundrels. He also shows the importance of answering God’s call in your life.

John’s quote of the week:
The real salvation in an age of postmodernism, when the lack of belief in truth has led to a lack of belief in the stability of all our systems and moral values, is always to stand on the truth. Remember ‘semper veritas’ – always the truth.

The Extras Segment is taking a two-week hiatus due to the holidays but it will return with perfect 2020 vision in the New Year!

Merry Christmas everyone! We have a unique show for you this week. In the boralogue, John sets the table for the rest of the program, giving an overview as to how we got to where we are with education. In 1989, Dr. Shirley McCune signaled a sea change for totally transforming education. Today we are seeing the results of that change.

Outcome Based EducationIn 1994, John produced a program on KWGN in Denver that featured a round table of guests discussing the truth about outcome-based education. What was said then, we are seeing today, so we will play a lot from that program on this week’s show. John moderated and the featured guests were Charlotte Iserbyt, Dwight Williams, Berit Kjos, and Gen Yvette Sutton.

Deliberate Dumbing Down of AmericaTopics discussed include the processes put into place allowing outcome-based education to begin, the work of change agents to convince the public that this radical transformation was a good idea, and getting children to transition from logical reasoning to emotional reasoning.

The guests go on to examine how teachers and administrators changed the way students thought and how they approached problem-solving, and how standardized tests have changed over the years to reflect this radical transformation of America’s education system.

John’s quote of the week:
If you took standardized testing from 1960 and asked a student today to pass that test, they wouldn’t be able to do it. And the student from 1960 couldn’t pass today’s test because they couldn’t think in politically correct terms. It’s difficult to compare apples to oranges to see how far we have fallen.

Level Playing Field

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast

In observing the law, there is the letter of the law and the spirit of the law. In this week’s boralogue, John observes that in order to keep society intact, we must observe both aspects of the law. Some laws, though, have been corrupted such as civil asset forfeiture, environmental law, and yes even impeachment. Freedoms associated with these laws are threatened because, even though the letter of the law is observed, the spirit of the law is ignored.

Deanna LynnAn often taboo subject not often covered in the media or in politics is that of sex trafficking. Deanna Lynn (www.refugeforwomen.org), author and Affiliate of Refuge for Women, joins us to recount her experience of being lured into the sex trade, how she managed to escape from and rise above it, and how she helps others who have gone through similar experiences.

Ronnie MitchemThe anthem kneeling controversy has somewhat died down, but in its heyday many people who spoke out against the protestors were vilified in the media. Pastor Ronnie Mitchem (www.victoryandpraise.com), Founder and Pastor of Victory & Praise Worship Center in Texas, shares his experience after he kicked two players – both Africa-American – off his football team for kneeling during the anthem.

Tamar SternthalJohn and Producer Steve take a 30,000-foot view of impeachment, leftist narratives surrounding it, and predictions of where it goes from here. Then, John closes out the show with Tamar Sternthal (www.camera.org), Director of the Israel office of the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting, who discusses instances of anti-Semitism in England and the U.S. and the media’s role in it.

John’s quote of the week:
The spirit of the law says that we understand why that law was created. And while we can get around the letter of the law, as a moral people we are self-disciplined and won’t do that. Why? Because we understand that we must observe the spirit of the law in addition to the letter of the law in order to keep the whole system intact.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play a double feature: first we have John’s boralogue from our 2017 Christmas episode. Following that, we play an interview from Christmas 2003 with Dr. Ted Byfield on understanding our Christian history and our current worldview.

We have protections built into our Constitution’s Bill of Rights that limit government’s interference in our freedom. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at how many of those protections are being violated in this impeachment process, focusing on the fourth and fifth amendments. These protections don’t necessarily apply in the impeachment process, but it highlights how the House is currently violating the spirit of the Constitution in order to persecute the President.

Rabbi Daniel LapinOpposing Christianity is secularism and it has become its own religion. America’s Rabbi Daniel Lapin (www.rabbidaniellapin.com) is back with us after a long absence to discuss the differences between Judeo-Christian and secular societies and what America needs to do to not only retain its religious roots but also strengthen them moving forward.

Dr. John Dale DunnEvolution is often considered by those in the scientific and academic arenas as being clear cut fact. Emergency Physician John Dale Dunn (www.heartland.org) joins us to bust that myth, showing that the probability of evolution creating even a single cell is astronomical given the time frame needed to do so and the immense complexity of the cell.

John’s quote of the week:
With unreasonable searches and seizures, if you’re going to seize something that might be involved in criminal activity, you have to have a clear idea that there is a criminal activity afoot. With this impeachment, they didn’t start out knowing there was criminal activity; they started out wanting to impeach. You have to have probable cause that something is wrong. They did not have that.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview from November 2012 with Dr. Jeffrey Russell, who discusses his book on fighting back against myths and lies about Christianity. When the interview is over, John briefly covers extremism and the battle for the future – the battle for freedom.
