This week the country observed the 150th anniversary of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. John examines the many contradictions that have plagued our nation since Lincoln’s time. Those who preach tolerance are being anything but. We can stop being racists by being obsessed with it. We can all be diverse and different, but only by being the same. We may not even realize that we’re sleepwalking into World War III. However did we get here? That’s the direction of the program for today.
First we turn to Diana West (www.dianawest.net), journalist and author of American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character. She discusses the steady stealthy Marxist infiltration of our government that began in the 1930s, and how this has shaped decisions made in the years since. She also compares the Cold War deals made between the U.S. and the Soviet Union with the impending framework deal with Iran.
What is the social contract and what happens when the citizens of a state believe their government is violating it? Dr. Pippa Malmgren, Ph.D. (www.drpmgroup.com), former Special Assistant to President George W. Bush on economic policy, analyzes the oftentimes turbulent renegotiation of the social contract between citizens and their state. There should be a balance of power between the individual or corporation to make a profit and the power of the state to tax them. When this fails, problems develop.
Join us as we continue our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6, which features comments by John on important stories making news around the world. This week, John takes an extensive look at the IMF and the endgame of climate change advocates for a carbon tax.Read More
A study in duality today as John looks at the safety of those whose opinions are in the minority and where they are safest. Is it in this country, where a university won’t screen “American Sniper” for fear of offending Muslims in attendance? Or is it in Kenya, where Christians were systematically executed at Garissa University just for being Christian? Go ahead, think hard!
The P5+1/Iran agreement may have delayed a nuclear weapon build-up but Iran is building alliances with terror proxies in the Middle East like Hezbollah and Hamas, so they are still a danger to Israel.
Just what exactly is this “deal” with Iran’s nuclear program? Don’t we have an agreement now? Problem is that the agreement was simply an agreement to agree to something in the future, but now the parties can’t even agree on what they agreed to agree upon. We need an attorney! Gayle Trotter (www.gayletrotter.com), partner at the Washington DC law firm Shafer & Trotter, dissects the Iran deal, really nothing more than a framework for later discussions, and how Iran may well come out of this better than the West or Israel as with an expanding nuclear program.
What does Iran’s support of terrorism mean for the U.S.? Retired INS Special Agent Michael Cutler (www.michaelcutler.net), says our border enforcement is broken and reform is urgently needed to deal with the very real threat of sleeper terrorist cells infiltrating our country. He also explains how voters must stay informed before voting or they just may get a government they don’t care for.
Join us for our Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week features an extensive look at Russia’s place on the global chessboard.Read More
Happy Easter, everyone. Christ is risen. This week we take a look at the history of Easter, ahem, I mean Resurrection Sunday. Wait, no it’s Easter. What is it called? Also, did you know there was a controversy as to when Easter is to be celebrated? John sorts it all out in this week’s boralogue and ties it to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) controversy in Indiana.
Speaking of which, did anyone miss the row this week caused by the RFRA in Indiana? The circus and misinformation ran rampant, but factual accuracy barely made a cameo. Travis Weber (www.frc.org), Director for Religious Liberty at the Family Research Council, sorts out the controversy and wording behind the bill and shows what the mainstream media won’t in the legislation’s true purpose.
Switching to the subject of healthcare, Twila Brase (www.cchfreedom.org), President of the Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom, explains the dangers of interoperability, which means your healthcare records would sooner or later be available to the world. Did you ever wonder about all the fine print on the HIPAA privacy forms found at your doctor’s office and are you actually required to sign them?
So what happens when a medical company unexpectedly becomes entangled in the complex jungle of regulations it faces? We welcome to the program Michael Daugherty (www.devilinsidethebeltway.com), President and CEO of LabMD, an Atlanta-based clinical laboratory, who discusses his book: Devil Inside the Beltway. Like all page-turning thrillers, there’s intrigue including computer hacking, blackmail, illegal surveillance and overwhelming odds against an unstoppable foe. This thriller is nonfiction, though, and reveals the potential consequences to American small businesses.

Latte, latte, my kingdom for a latte! You guessed it! The boralogue this week features King Richard III and Starbucks, though admittedly not in the same sentence. After 529 years, the remains of King Richard III were transported to their final resting place. John recaps Richard’s ruthless rise to the throne and shows how politicians haven’t changed much.
Also, it seems the Starbucks plan to discuss race with its customers ended as quickly as it began. John shares a conversation he had with a barista this week that contained two things the barista wasn’t trained for confronting logic and critical thinking.
First up this week, Andre Schutten (www.arpacanada.ca), General Counsel and Ontario Director for the Association for Reformed Political Action, analyzes the religious freedom case of Loyola High School in Montreal, which the Canadian Supreme Court upheld this week providing Christian schools with the right to teach ethics the way they see fit.
What happens when you wake up and suddenly realize that your church has been hijacked by a surreptitious new message? Chelsen Vicari (www.theird.org), Evangelical Program Director at the Institute on Religion and Democracy, discusses her new book “Distortion: How the New Christian Left is Twisting the Gospel”, revealing how progressivism is slowly changing the evangelical church.
Finally, Vern Westgate (www.vernwrites.com), retired Air Force vet and NASA engineer, joins us in the studio to examine the latest National Geographic cover story “The War on Science,” that was featured on the March 2015 magazine cover. Vern tackles the scientific fallacies and presuppositions behind man-made global warming and the big bang theory and questions the new scientific method.
Join us for our Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.
Welcome to spring! As we turn to a new season on the calendar, we also turn the page on another election is Israel. We are suspending the boralogue this week and jumping into a series of four unique voices who will lend us their views on what they believe is coming in the next 24-48 months for the West as well as for the Middle East in general and for Israel in particular.
Giving us a direct view from inside, Avi Lipkin (www.vicmord.com), joins us first from Israel to comment on the victory this week by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and to touch on America’s less than stellar history in honoring agreements with the Jewish state.
What would happen if President Obama’s deal with Iran is consummated? Steven Rosen (www.meforum.org), Director of the Washington Project at the Middle East Forum, explores the possibilities for the region not only if the deal were passed but also if Obama steps in agreement with the Palestinian Authority on the international criminal court.
When Islamic terrorists ratchet up attacks on those in the West, will our response be the same as it’s always been? Lt. Col. Scott Mann, retired U.S. armed forces Green Beret and head of the Stability Institute, offers an alternative solution. Our policy will need to change because, he says, “We might be done with violent extremism, but it’s not done with us.”
Finally, we welcome to the program Lauri Regan (www.whitecase.com), attorney for White & Case in New York, who examines the weakness in U.S. policy and how it may take another attack of massive proportions for our nation to wake up to our lapsing security.
Join us for our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week, John takes a look at orthodoxy and dissenters.Read More
A moral equivalency controversy followed President Obama’s comments at the National Prayer Breakfast and many Christians were offended. John analyzes in this week’s boralogue how the comparison given was offensive not because it wasn’t true, but because it was taken out of context. Christianity has moved past its warts. Has Islam?
Rick Moran (www.rightwingnuthouse.com), host of the RINO Hour of Power radio show, joins us first to examine the attempt by a group of UC Irvine students to ban the American flag from inclusive spaces on campus because it may constitute hate speech to those who may be offended.
Next up on the program, Fred Fleitz (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Senior Fellow at the Center for Security Policy and retired U.S. national security veteran, discusses NSA programs to monitor Congressional emails and who oversees the overseers when it comes to the dissemination of information.
Dr. Adam Olscamp (www.northwestspecialty.com), orthopedic surgeon at Northwest Specialty Hospital in north Idaho, explores the growth of medical tourism as Canadians cross the border for better treatment, and touches on where health care is headed in the United States.
Finally we welcome David Skeel (www.trueparadoxblog.com), Professor of Corporate Law at the University of Pennsylvania, who discusses his book True Paradox and how Christianity beautifully explains many of the complexities found in the universe.
Join us for our Section 6 weekly intelligence briefing, featuring commentary by John on important stories making news around the world. This week, John travels through the flats looking at conflicting political correctnesses (or is it correctnessi?) on the global scene.Read More
