Last Show Recap

Defending the Constitution

In the first half, analyst Craig Hulet offered commentary on current events, terrorism, and world conflicts. "It looks to me unbelievably clear that money is going to buy the presidency, and Jeb Bush will be the next president," he declared.

In the latter half, broadcast and print journalist Gary Grossman discussed his research into the chasm between deep time (the scientific estimate that Earth is 4.6 billion years old) and a young Earth (the claim that the planet is only 7-8,000 years old put forth by some religious groups), which serves as the backdrop for his new novel.

Defending the Constitution

Show Archive
Date: Sunday - September 8, 2013
Host: John B. Wells
Guests: Stewart Rhodes, Joel Skousen

Joining John B. Wells, Stewart Rhodes, founder and President of Oath Keepers, argued that there's a relentless campaign going on to centralize power, militarize the police, and strip power out of the hands of average citizens. This kind of situation sets people up for a dictatorship, such as seen in Stalinist Russia and Nazi Germany, he remarked. Rhodes believes that economic collapse and the ensuing chaos will be used to accelerate the centralizing of power, and the scrapping of the US Constitution.

His organization, the Oath Keepers, works with military veterans, law enforcement, and first responders to remind them of their oaths to defend the Constitution, and not "just follow orders" that go against the people. Their mission also includes training these veterans and officers to become community leaders, to be able to step in during a crisis, and not just wait for FEMA to belatedly offer help. It's critical that people get involved with their own community, such as participating in a Neighborhood Watch, and learning what skills their various neighbors have, he suggested, adding that it's also important to understand the logistics of communications, clean water, and power on the local level.

The real war going on is the elites versus the free people of the world, whom they seek to usher into a police state, Rhodes stated. The American people have to get back to their independence, starting with self-sufficiency and food reserves, yet the survivalist approach of working in isolation isn't going to work, he commented. We have to think in terms of community, he said, such as a local VFW forming its own battalion.

Syria & Geopolitics

First hour guest, political scientist Joel Skousen provided insights on world affairs such as the situation in Syria. He doubted that Assad was behind the chemical attacks on Syrian civilians. The US and Israel have been looking for a way to justify an attack on Iran, and they hope by attacking Syria, Iran may support Assad with a retaliation, which would open the door for a war with them, Skousen posited. The US wants to target Iran not only to curtail their nuclear weapons development but to cut them off as an oil supplier to China, he continued, adding that he foresees an eventual war between the US and Russia & China.
