Ep. 267 - JLTY Plus: We Are Not Ok with John Ondrasik of Five For Fighting
Kira interviews Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter John Ondrasik (“Superman”, “It’s Not Easy) about his latest single in support of Israel. Faith, family, culture and Glam Rock…no topic is off limits on JLTY and John met the bar. “Clearly, the causes of the moral decline on our campuses, in our culture, and institutions have been growing and metastasizing for decades. An inability to clearly call out the horrors of Hamas’ terrorist atrocities is not the root of the problem; it is the symptom of a deeper decay. We can look away no longer. Evil is on the march and wears many faces.
This is a time for choosing.”

Amazing review of MLK speech!
Your analysis of MLK’s “I have a dream “ speech was dynamic! You put it in the context of his times in the places of the speech where someone would confuse today’s perspective with the times in which MLK lived. I lived through the 1960’s and felt you portrayed that time accurately. I admire your desire to make your people see that they will get more help from Republicans today. They have made no progress with the Democrat party because they don’t honor their promises. I pray you will be successful in the end to help bring us together. Love your podcast!
A national treasure to conservatism!
You got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and and a nice-looking podcaster whom I discovered via The Babylon Bee. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.
Whether she’s voicing her opinions on Candace Owens, Kanye West, or the Barbie movie, she is guaranteed to provoke your thoughts. You might agree, you might disagree, you might have no opinion, but you’ll love her.
So smart she makes it look easy
I love how her mind works. She explains issues and culture in a way that makes me understand. So many times I set back and say “these people are crazy! How on earth can they come up with this conclusion “ . After listening to this podcast I say “ oh !!” Still idiots but I have an understanding.🤣
