SOS Gear! Visit the Steel On S...2
We’ve often said that political correctness is killing us and it is. Recall that PC doesn’t care whether something is true or not; it just tests to see if what is being said or done matches PC orthodoxy. John’s boralogue details how political correctness in Great Britain allowed the rapes of 1,400 young women to go unstopped for over a decade. It’s a major scandal in that country but our media have ignored it.
Speaking of political correctness, with fall “falling” on the nation again, new students are flooding onto college campuses, where orientation sessions should actually be designated indoctrination courses. Jennifer Kabbany from (www.thecollegefix.com) debuts to describe some of the nonsense roaring around colleges today.
Then Mark Nestmann (www.assetprotection2014.com) explains how U.S. FACTA laws which went into effect on July 1, 2014, are seriously crippling the ability of U.S. citizens to live or work abroad. We’re the only country in the world to impose this kind of onerous regulation on foreign banks.
Constitutional attorney Michael Connelly from the United States Justice Foundation (www.usjf.net) provides his weekly commentary on the Constitution’s Bill of Rights, focusing on Amendment #7 this week.
As the Internal Revenue Service continues to “lose” more emails related to a scandal where it allegedly targeted conservative organizations to harass them, it seems an even greater scandal has been underway in Wisconsin, where prosecutors are accused of trumping up charges against conservative politicians in order to defame them and defeat them in elections. Professor William Jacobson is a law professor at Cornell University and publisher of The Legal Insurrection blog.
Finally we’ll shift gears. Oftentimes Christians and pastors say very silly things when discussing theological issues because they are ignorant of church history and the decisions of previous generations. We’ll have an interesting conversation with church history professor Dr. Robert Rea, Ph.D., about this subject as he delineates themes from his new book, Why Church History Matters – An Invitation to Love and Learn from Our Past.
We’re back from vacation. Hope your summer went well (winter for those in the southern hemisphere.)
John’s boralogue analyzes some characteristics of the global paradigm shift through which we’re passing right and then explains how President Obama’s actions in geopolitics are consistent with his background as a community organizer.
We’ve discussed collapsing narratives a lot. Rising antisemitism in Europe is at the crux of several bankrupt narratives: Islam is a religion of peace, Europe shed the antisemitism of World War II and the biggest social problem in Europe is Islamophobia. Michel Gurfinkiel (www.michelgurfinkiel.com) from the Jean-Jacques Rousseau Institute in Paris premiers to explain how the new antisemitism is a dangerous mix of the old right, the new left and Islamic immigrant hatred of Jews and Israel.
Since 9-11 it seems to be common for government agencies to justify end-running liberty protections in the constitution by saying we need to do it for national security. The real question is rising as to whether some agencies are so cloaked in secrecy now that they are poised to go rogue, running out of control and oversight. Dr. Ivan Eland, Ph.D., from the Independent Institute (www.independent.org) returns for a conversation on this important issue.
Finally, the Ebola epidemic in Africa is worse than many think with shortages of supplies and medicines. Emergency preparedness guru and medical missionary Dr. Paul Williams, M.D., (www.whenallplansfail.com) from the International Healthcare Network rejoins the program for a requesting to listeners to consider helping him get supplies to where they’re needed.

Taking this week of on vacation but we hope you’ll like this really interesting program we prepared for you.
The first hour features a lively discussion with Edward Haslam (www.doctormarysmonkey.com), author of Dr. Mary’s Monkey, about the relationship between Lee Harvey Oswald, a secret CIA germ warfare laboratory in New Orleans, and the Kennedy assassination.
Then the relationship between faith in difficult times, church history and the concepts contained in Christian belief are themed in a conversation with Dr. Carroll Helm (www.carrollhelm.com), author of “God’s Mysteries and Paradoxes, Looking through the Glass, Darkly.”
We’ll pick up our “Bill of Rights” thread with constitutional attorney Dr. Michael Connelly next week. Until then, have a safe and happy Labor day weekend.
We’re taking the week off for vacation so we’ve revved up a special program.
it’s been 19 years since the terrorist attack on the Murrah Office building in Oklahoma City. Despite this time lapse, the government refuses to release surveillance tapes taken from numerous locations in front of the building, which would show what happened right up to the time of the explosion. One must ask, why?
To answer that we’ll start with a backgrounder by re-running portions of an our July 31, 2004 interview with Oklahoma City reporter Jayna Davis (www.jaynadavis.com) about her book, The Third Terrorist.
From that point we’ll jump forward to a lawsuit, which has been underway in Salt Lake City where plaintiff Jesse Trentadue is challenging the government’s refusal to release evidence. Leo Hohmann from Worldnetdaily (www.wnd.com) is following this issue.
In the midst of the fiasco that immigration policy has become, what do the children of parents who have legally immigrated to the United States think about the situation and about patriotism in general? Jiovanni del Cristo’s (www.sacred-liberty.com) father came to the United States from Cuba. He expounds on the issue.
Finally, we’ll do a quick update on the new trend of transhumanism with Joshua Matrisciana (www.jeremiahfilms.com).Read More
John’s extended boralogue delivers an in-depth portrayal of the radical upending of alliances that has occurred in the Middle East, along with the lessons that can be learned from the latest conflict between Israel and Gaza.
This leads directly to our first guest, Caroline Glick from the Jerusalem Post, (www.jpost.com). The Israeli left, formerly President Obama’s ace in the hole in that country, has become thoroughly disillusioned about the president’s intent for their nation following the latest round of bumbling diplomacy by Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry. In essence, their credibility in the Middle East is now non-existent.
Even as geopolitical instability continues, the world slowly drifts into its next economic and monetary crisis. We’ll air clips we produced this week for Dave McAlvany’s McAlvany Weekly Commentary (www.mcalvany.com) featuring an in-depth interview with economic writer Ambrose Evans-Pritchard at the London Telegraph (www.telegraph.co.uk). The time of global debt crisis is approaching; not quite here yet but a real doozy when it does arrive, possibly as early as mid-2015.
Constitutional attorney Michael Connelly of the United States Justice Foundation (www.usjf.net) leads off the second hour with his weekly exposition of the Constitution’s Bill of Rights, highlighting the sixth amendment this week.
And finally Matt Philbin (www.mrc.org) from the Media Research Center comes on board. During the Israel/Gaza conflict, the main-liners steadfastly refused to refer to Hamas as a terrorist group, even though the U.S. government has designated them as such. What gives?
John’s boralogue contrasts how Christian belief should stand as a bulwark against the pessimism surrounding turbulent geopolitical and economic situations. In times of stress, Christians have oftentimes risen full of optimism, bearing witness to their faith and its truths, rather than hunkering down with everyone else.
Then Dr. Os Guinness (www.osguinness.com) joins the program to detail how Christianity always rebounds from proclamations of its imminent demise, providing the answers people seek during periods of failed political, economic, and religious narratives. His new book: Renaissance – The Power of the Gospel However Dark the Times.
As the western world goes into eclipse, the real question is whether or not it can reform, rebound, and regenerate. Christianity could provide the basis for that change. Drs. Jay Grimstead, Ph.D., and Eugene Calvin Clingman, Ph.D., (www.sendmethatbook.com) join John in a round table discussion of Rebuilding Civilization on the Bible: Proclaiming the Truth on 24 Controversial Issues.
Finally constitutional attorney Michael Connelly of the United States Justice Foundation (www.usjf.net) returns for his weekly exposition of the Constitution’s Bill of Rights. This week, the fifth amendment is highlighted.
