Flashback: Consensus Round Table 2003

There is a great co-opting of America, as John has said in times past.  For this day after Thanksgiving, we are flashing back to March 2003 to a round table discussion on Steel about consensus thinking with four participants: Charlotte Iserbyt, Sarah Leslie, Steve Goss and Dr. Robert Klenck.

The participants give detailed explanations how consensus thinking is used methodically by governments, churches, private corporations, and schools to confuse people and convince them into going along with hidden agendas. Remember what John has always said about consensus: break the word into two parts, con and senses – you are being conned out of your senses.  So beware, enjoy the blast from the past, and marvel at how relevant this information still is today.

In this week’s boralogue, John diverts off-script and shares his personal history. He covers his childhood, his heritage, and his experiences among many cultures throughout his life. Here in America, we are a diverse society and that is a good thing. We have to work together, remember who we are, and focus on that rather than on the division in which we find ourselves today.

Mary GrabarAmerican history in academic textbooks has shifted from fact-based events to ideology-driven narratives. Mary Grabar (www.dissidentprof.com), Fellow at the Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization, discusses how Howard Zinn spearheaded the project to change history textbooks. His primer shows how America is a horrible, awful country whose only solution is to adopt socialism. That is being taught to our children right now.

John SikkemaCanada has slid a little further down the progressive lawfare cliff than the United States. John Sikkema (www.arpacanada.ca), Legal Counsel for the Association for Reformed Political Action in Ottawa describes how, thanks to politically correct ideology, legal terms like harassment and ‘hate crimes’ are being redefined in Canada. Formerly law-abiding citizens who happen to disagree with the preferred narrative are now becoming criminals.

Ofra BengioAfter the U.S. embassy attack in Baghdad a few weeks ago, questions have arisen as to what exactly is going on in Iraq. Ofra Bengio (www.dayan.org), Senior Fellow at the Moshe Dayan Center joins us from Tel Aviv to discuss the geopolitics of Iraq, including the status with Kurdistan, the struggle to establish a unified government, and interference from Iran.

John’s quote of the week:
FBI Director Christopher Ray wrote in a letter last week that he deeply regrets the Bureau’s many errors in the process of obtaining warrants on former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page. Isn’t that cute? He apologized. Try that in court sometime if you’re convicted. ‘Yes, your honor, I murdered that man. But I apologize.’ ‘OK, you’re free to go.’ It doesn’t work that way.

On this week’s extra segment, we crank up the Way-back machine, going back 18 years to March 2002 with Dr. Dennis Cuddy and Charlotte Iserbyt, discussing the problems with No Child Left Behind, including most ironically how most children were in fact left behind.

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.

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!
