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!

Unsavory Unions

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast

There’s an epic battle underway for our freedom. What exactly is happening and do we have a chance of winning? In this week’s boralogue, John pushes aside all of the ‘squabblage’ from the media over tweets and accusations and looks at the bigger picture. Global pantheistic socialism is on the rise and threatens our freedoms. Will truth survive? It will if we embrace the Truth and push back against the horde.

Education in this country is dysfunctional at best and who better to analyze that than a former teacher? Rebecca Friedrichs (www.forkidsandcountry.org), Founder of For Kids and Country, examines how teachers’ unions control over every aspect of education, including activism in the classroom as well as a disturbing and graphic sex ed curriculum used in California.

Hate speech in Germany is being arbitrarily determined. Journalist and Senior Fellow at the Gatestone Institute, Judith Bergman (www.gatestoneinstitute.org), is back with us to discuss how German authorities engage in politically correct censorship against people and groups whose speech goes against the orthodoxy. To justify this, they label it ‘hate speech.’

Administrators on college campuses are drawing inspiration from an unlikely source: East Germany. Nicole Neilly (www.speechfirst.org), President and Founder of Speech First, describes how some colleges are setting up bias response teams, eerily similar to the East German Stasi constantly monitoring citizens and informing on neighbors.

John’s quote of the week:
When you take the time to read the UN Declaration of Human Rights, there are weasel words in there, which allow states – notably the UN itself – to end-run those rights. It says you can have freedom of speech, freedom of this, etc., but you can’t exercise it contrary to any policy of the United Nations. Well, the rights then just died.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview with Anita Hoge (abcsofdumbdown.blogspot.com) from February 2015 where she covers unknown aspects of Common Core, including monitoring of child behavior, tracking children via a scoring system, and potentially interfering with our Republic as a whole.

Tech-Knowledge-y

Are we headed for another Civil War given our tremendous polarization and distaste for compromise? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at how we go to this point of no compromise and how, with the issue of abortion, there is a fundamental difference in worldview that makes it difficult to come together in agreement. If no one backs down, we could be headed for trouble.

Technology in the right hands can work wonders. In the wrong hands, however, it can be a nightmare. Steven Mosher (www.pop.org), President of the Population Research Institute, analyzes China’s social credit score system and describes the tactics used to impugn those with low scores. He goes on to discuss some horrific details behind China’s organ harvesting business.

Social media outlets are abusing technology in the form of censorship against politically incorrect views. Ashkhen Kazaryan (www.techfreedom.org), Director of Civil Liberties at TechFreedom, examines the fight for free speech and questions whether a social media outlet is a public commons or a private company.

How is socialism portrayed in our education system today? Timothy Snowball (www.pacificlegal.org), Attorney with Pacific Legal Foundation, discusses the stark difference between socialism and capitalism and shows how students in the West are being fed a false narrative that socialism is preferable to free markets.

John and Steve finish off the show this week looking at the impending “Deal of the Century,” the Trump administration’s proposed peace plan between the Israelis and the Palestinians. How do the media, Western countries, Arab countries, and Israel’s upcoming re-election in September fit in to the Deal of the Century?

John’s quote of the week:
It was 50 years ago that people could disagree and compromise on things. But why is compromise difficult today? The answer to that is: worldview. Before, we had a common worldview working toward different objectives. Today we have a collision of two different worldviews.

In this week’s Extras segment, we go back to August 2008 with Paul Mladjenovic, an investor who grew up in communist Croatia, who advocates for free markets because he and his family have seen the toll that socialism takes on society.

Happy Easter. Christ is risen! We are skipping the boralogue this holiday week and jumping straight into our first guest. Author and political analyst Dr. Gerard Lameiro (www.greatnewsforamerica.com) joins us to discuss whether or not progressive ideas are failing and what, based on historical cycles, American voters are looking for.

The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution states in part that private property shall not be taken for public use without just compensation. Christina Martin (www.pacificlegal.org), attorney at Pacific Legal Foundation, reviews one of her cases from Pennsylvania and another from Michigan and shows how civil asset forfeiture is being creatively used to foreclose on homeowners.

Are communist ideals already established in this country? Joel McDurmon (www.americanvision.org), President of American Vision, examines how Communist Manifesto policies are popping up throughout our society. The need for education is paramount in order to know what our freedoms are and recognize how to get them back.

John’s quote of the week:
When a failing worldview is challenged, they don’t repent – they double down and commit more of the error that they committed before. This of course accentuates the dive into the ground.

Section 6 is taking a break this week for the Easter holiday but we will return next week for more geopolitical news.
