Middle East peace talks begin this weekend in Paris while neither Israel nor any Palestinian group has been invited. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the history of the term Palestinian, who actually occupied the West Bank and Gaza before 1967, and the most likely outcome of the talks: a plan for a two-state solution. How will this affect the area’s future?

A bill was recently signed into law that would establish a government office to disseminate U.S. foreign policy and to combat fake news. In other words, we may soon have an official Ministry of Truth. We welcome back Alex Newman (www.thenewamerican.com), Correspondent for The New American, who points out that certain journalists could be labeled as illegitimate just for disagreeing with the government.

As we air our final show of the Obama administration era, we are taking a look at the president’s legacy. Fox News Strategic Analyst Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (www.foxnews.com) examines the weakened status and poor morale in our military and what Trump can do to improve it. He also analyzes foreign policy issues concerning Russia, China, and Iran.

President Obama has touted his legacy as positive in nearly every respect, however the truth lies far below that. Jeffery Tucker (www.fee.org), Director of Content for the Foundation for Economic Education discusses the president’s poor handling of the economy, including implementing both Obamacare and oppressive business regulations.

Leftists have been operating from the Alinsky playbook for decades, but now President-elect Trump is using those same methods against them. Dr. Tome Borelli (www.conservativereview.com), Contributor at Conservative Review contrasts how Trump is using companies to lobby for tax reform versus how Obama used drug companies to lobby for Obamacare and bigger government.

John’s quote of the week:
“I’m sure people would like to see peace in the Middle East but you have to ask on what terms and at what cost. Given the current biases present in the United Nations against Israel, those are very sobering questions.”

Happy New Year! We begin 2017 with a look at the fake news phenomenon. In this week’s boralogue, John points out the hypocrisy of those who believe in relative truth but are outraged by fake news and shows how Martin Luther, the Renaissance, and the last 500 years have led to better access and control of information.

Dutch politician Geert Wilders was recently found guilty of violating his country’s hate speech laws. William Watkins (www.independent.org), Research Fellow at the Independence Institute, shows that hate speech laws are purposefully vague and references the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 to show that it has happened in the U.S. before.

Will the Trump administration stick to its campaign promises in regards to education? Alex Newman (www.thenewamerican.com), Correspondent for The New American, looks at the need for education reform, including an overhaul of Common Core, and how Trump’s pick of Becky Devos for Education Secretary most likely means reform is out for now.

Will the United States be ready should an EMP destroy our electric grid. Bill Forstchen (www.onesecondafter.com), History Professor at Montreat College, discusses the threat of EMP, preparedness by not only individuals but also government, and his belief that the Trump administration will take the threat seriously.

Finally, is it worth trying to evangelize to people who are militantly atheist, especially on the internet? London-based Baptist Minister Mark Woods (www.christiantoday.com), advises that while trolls can discourage, there is always someone out there who gets the message. Time management and self-discipline are key elements when engaging others.

John’s quote of the week:
“The idea of the Christian humanists was that every human being has inherent dignity before God and being personally responsible before God for his or her conduct. That caused radical changes in western civilization; the idea of individual ability and individual responsibility.”

New Year Turning

The year is coming to a close and 2016 has seen a major shift in geopolitics. In this week’s boralogue, John shows that we are entering a fourth turning crisis and explains how this can happen either democratically or via a strongman. Both options have their pros and cons. New Year’s is a time of renewal and change. How will that happen? Stay tuned.

Who is Vladimir Putin and how did he come to power? David Satter (www.hudson.org), Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute examines the history of Russia’s president and what U.S.-Russia relations may look like between presidents Putin and Trump.

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has tenuous ties to Hamas. Kyle Shideler (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Director of Threat Information at the Center for Security Policy explores these connections and shows that political correctness in the U.S. has resulted in problems both in the media and at the FBI.

Finally, we round out the year with a conversation on economics. Jim Puplava (www.financialsense.com), President of Puplava Financial Services joins us to discuss changes in geopolitics over the past few years, the current financial paradigm shift, and future economic trends.

John’s quote of the week:
“Remember as we open the new year that governments come and go, cycles come and go and repeat as people try to create utopia on earth. But there is a time coming which scripture promises will be a utopia led by Jesus Christ, the King of kings.”

Our Section 6 intelligence brief is on holiday hiatus but we will return in 2017 with more analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

Fiscal Cliff

Merry Christmas everyone! We put aside a crazy, tumultuous year and celebrate Christmas in this week’s boralogue. John shows that even though there’s little hope in the things of this world and forces align to keep us divided, we do have hope in Christ. Things of the earth have no eternal value; our true value is found in Jesus. So when we come together this Christmas with family and friends, let’s love each other and engage in civil conversation.

We have predicted that the U.S. is headed off of a fiscal cliff in the very near future, but what could that look like? Author and journalist Lionel Shriver shares the plot of her new book “The Mandibles,” which describes one possible downturn in our economic future. She’ll answer the question: is there a remedy for the little guy?

Coinciding with Christmas Eve this year is the beginning of Hanukkah, a Jewish remembrance of, among many things, heroes of the faith. Rabbi Yonason Goldson (www.yonasongoldson.com), Jewish History Teacher in St. Louis looks at the true meaning of heroism: selflessness and doing the right thing in service to something greater than yourself.

John’s quote of the week:
“We have two fundamentally different worldviews that are fighting against each other, struggling for control. At the very same time, we are sliding toward a series of major crises that neither of those two sides seems to mention.”

Our Section 6 intelligence brief is on holiday hiatus but we will return in 2017 with more analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

As we near the end of 2016, we ask: what was the most significant event of the year? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at how the free flow of information on social media and the internet has broken the mainstream politically correct narrative. Media outlets that have controlled the information in the past are now being ignored as their bias is laid bare. The fourth turning paradigm shift is upon us.

Darwinism has evolved over the past few decades and has pitted science against religion. Dr. Charles Ware (www.crossroads.edu), President of Crossroads Bible College shows that evolution demeans humans and gives atheists a place to rest their beliefs. The solution and the Truth can be found in the Bible.

After a period of self-reflection following the 2016 presidential campaign, the Left and their media cohorts have returned to pushing the same old tired narrative. Dr. John Zmirak (www.stream.org), Senior Editor at The Stream, rejoins us and explains how every effort is being made to to delegitimize Donald Trump before he takes office. If a violent incident is provoked, they hope the future president will abandon his agenda.

One agenda question for Donald Trump is what to do with Obamacare. Dr. Merrill Matthews (www.ipi.org), Resident Scholar with the Institute for Policy Innovation discusses the possible replacement of the Affordable Care Act, what would take its place, and how a change would affect Americans’ healthcare coverage.

John’s quote of the week:
“The core difference that we have seen this year is that the politically correct narratives of the world’s politicos in the West – as an enforced, mandatory, intellectual adherent environment – are actually cracked.”

Fighting Back

Fidel Castro’s death has brought about many opinions on his leadership in Cuba. In this week’s boralogue, John dissects the reaction by progressive elites like Canada’s Justin Trudeau who praise Castro’s governance and shows the truth behind socialism by looking at what actually happened in Cuba under El Comandante.

Socialism is dangerous and has never succeeded in history, but it has somehow grown in popularity recently. Mike Shotwell (www.mikeshotwell.com), author of the new book Immersed in Red, gives us an insider’s perspective from his time growing up in a Marxist household. He discusses the realities of socialism and how it has influenced the Obama administration.

ISIS has been successful in recruiting young people to their cause but one country is fighting back. Josh Siegel (www.dailysignal.com), News Editor for the Daily Signal explains how a group in the United Kingdom is helping to stop ISIS recruitment and the controversies surrounding it.

Federal agencies are interfering with property rights and owners are beginning stand up to them. Ron Ewart (www.narlo.org), President of the National Association of Rural Landowners describes how government bureaucrats have waged war on cattle ranchers in the west and how reform is needed in agencies that are rife with radical environmentalism.

John’s quote of the week:
“The reactions to the death of Fidel Castro among the progressive elites are extremely telling of why the world is where it is today. Why are they reacting badly to populist uprisings in the West? It’s because those uprisings are threatening the 50-year long march through Western culture to “transform” it from a free market system to a government-controlled socialist utopia.”
