Happy New Year everyone.
We’re taking this weekend off for some R&R as we brace for what promises to be a chaotic new year.
Today’s pre-recorded program features another vignette of a personality involved in the Middle East conflict, notably Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan. Author William Simpson, author of "The Prince," guests.
Then another Middle East theme, with clips from White House news correspondent Bill Koenig’s address (www.watch.org) at the recent Koinonia Institute’s conference in November on the politics of the U.S.’s involvements in the Israel/Palestine conflict and some of the spiritual repercussions.
No boralogue today.Read More
Merry Christmas everyone.
We’re taking the weekend off but we’ve provided you with some interesting interviews.
Frivolous use of the term “racist” in politics is destroying free speech and rational debate, not to mention trashing Dr. Martin Luther King’s original dream of a color-blind society. A radical break in the public’s tolerance of this nonsense is sure to come as Dr. Patrick Garry, J.D., Ph.D, explains in his book “Cultural Whiplash, the Unforeseen Consequences of America’s Crusade Against racial Discrimination.”
Then career law enforcement professional Steve Doran revisits the show with an update on national security leaks at Los Alamos Laboratories. In addition, we discuss the growing tendency of cop shows on TV — both the reality and dramatic variety — to treat the Constitution as negligible as long as they claim “they’re getting the bad guys.”

John does an extended boralogue with a detailed presentation of the sea change ballet in the U.S.’s Middle East policy, which means Israel is really going to be put on the hot plate.
Then Gilead Ini from CAMERA (www.camera.org) joins the conversation to review former President Jimmy Carter’s new and controversial book, "Palestine: Peace not Apartheid," which can be summed up in one sentence: Palestine good; Israel bad.
In the last hour of the program John offers a snapshot of the current global economic situation, focused on Treasury Secretary Paulson and Fed Chairman Bernanke’s trip to China to stabilize the dollar. Finally we round out with an appearance by Dan Gainor, director of BMI (www.businessandmedia.org), to monitor rising levels of hysteria about global warming and the failure of western countries to pony up the transfer bucks to international bureaucrats.Read More
The CFR script for a new process in the Middle East came into full play the last two weeks: Former President Jimmy Carter poked the hornet’s nest with his new book on the Israel/Palestine issue, coupled with a 3.5-hour interview on CSPAN. Then the Iraq Study Group published its recommendations for Middle East negotiations, with James Baker suggesting possibly leaving Israel out of it.
Finally President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair held a joint press conference on the new Iraq exit strategy. We’re still assessing all the data points so we’ll defer to a later program for a full analysis on the emerging situation.
The Emergent Church operates on the same principles as Purpose- Driven Churches but incorporates new items such as medieval meditation and spiritual formation programs. Either way, thousands of people are being ground up in their churches. We’ll look at defending your church from a takeover. Pastor Kevin Johnson from Perspective Underground (www.contender.org) joins us.
40 years of moral decay and psychologizing children in public schools coupled with political correctness in the psychiatric profession have taken a serious toll. Massive numbers of U.S.
college students suffer severe depression. Dr. Miriam Grossman, M.D., is a UCLA psychiatrist and author of the book, "Unprotected."
She is demanding that the PC myths about promiscuous sex in her profession be stopped.
John’s boralogue analyzes the three phases of the "flying wedge"
being aimed at the evangelical church.
Well another week has flown by.
More and more liberals brand themselves “progressive,” and are
leading the push to force religion from the marketplace of public
ideas. It’s ironic progressives forget that for a century”progressive” meant “Marxist.” Alexander Solzhenitsyn warns us that we should not forget the lessons of the progressive war on religion in the Soviet Union. Dan Mahoney, co-editor of “The Solzhenitsyn Reader,” joins us for the first part of the program.
Then we compare the lessons of the first hour with a recent speech given by progressive feminist Naomi Wolf.
John’s boralogue analyzes the “flying wedge” being driven down the center of the evangelical church using the delphi technique and other methods.Read More
Happy Thanksgiving Weekend.
Hope you’re having a good holiday weekend.
Today’s program is highly focused. No boralogue. We begin with a short interview with Joe Farah, founder of www.worldnetdaily.com.
Then the rest of the program features segments of John Loeffler’s address entitled, "Antichrist Doesn’t Wear Tights," focusing on the effects of deceptive dialectical thought flooding into the West and the Church. The address was delivered at Koinonia Institute’s Conference in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho on November 18, 2006.Read More
The nomination of Dr. Robert Gates as U.S. Secretary of Defense signals a major sea change in the country’s Middle East policy, especially as regards Iran. There was much shuttling this week as the U.S. prepares to soften its approach to Iran. Ken Timmerman
(www.kentimmerman.com) joins us and John’s boralogue rotates around an analysis of this theme.
John records the religious history of the first Thanksgiving and contrasts it to politically correct history today.
Finally, we’ll feature part two of Harold Hoffman from the U.K.
(www.britanniaradio.co.uk) looking at the history of the European Union, how it was sold to the British, and what parallels can be drawn relating to the Security and Prosperity Partnership her in the U.S.
This week we exchanged Socialist Party (R) for Socialist Party (D) in Congress, an ongoing process of pitching one group of rascals out and putting other rascals in. This process will accelerate and deepen in the future as we get hit be a series of geopolitical and economic crises.
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was sacked and replaced with Dr. Robert Gates. But Gates hangs with the globalist crowd that thinks American support of Israel is causing unrest in the Middle East. So what does that mean for the region’s future? Former Secretary of Defense William Cohen, Donald Rumsfeld’s predecessor in the Clinton administration, joins us on the show about that and other topics.
Texas is abuzz with rumors about the Trans-Texas Corridor but no one seems to be able to get information about it. That’s because Texas Governor Rick Perry is keeping the lid on things. Once people discover how many Texans are going to lose property under eminent domain, it won’t be pretty. Perhaps it would be instructive to look at the history of how the Monet process formed the EU and make comparisons to its use in shaping the Security and Prosperity Partnership. Harold Hoffman joins us from Britannia Radio in the U.K. (www.britanniaradio.co.uk).
John’s boralogue analyzes long-term hidden trends, which this week’s elections have triggered.Read More
Why is it many Christians, especially young ones, are confused about their faith and the foundations on which it stands? It’s not so much what they have been taught in the government school systems but rather the dialectical process of thought in which they have been trained. Bruce Shortt, author of “The Harsh Truth About Public Schools” (www.exodusmandate.org) joins us. We’ll also look at related issues affecting home school in Europe and the United States.
Why does someone change a worldview position over time?
Interesting question. Keith Thompson, author of “Leaving the Left”
John’s boralogue looks at financial cracks beginning to form as part of the “great reneging” as citizens in the U.S. and the U.K.
begin to realize that their social programs are beginning to cost them severely. In essence, no free lunch.
Potpourri show today covering a wide range of issues.
John spends the first part of the program talking about liberty- related issues and doing a follow-up on the interview with former Attorney General John Ashcroft last week, featuring audio clips of the interview.
There really was a secret meeting in Banff, Alberta, Canada regarding the Security and Prosperity Partnership. Dr. Steven Yates, Ph.D, gives us the results of his investigation.
Then we’ll hear clips of a speech given by White House correspondent Bill Koenig of www.watch.org about the relationship between "replacement theology" and whether or not churches support Israel.
No formal boralogue today. The entire show is one giant boralogue punctuated with interviews and clips.Read More
We clear the decks today for an important show. This involves skipping the boralogue.
First, former Attorney John Ashcroft joins the program for a discussion about his new book, "Never Again, Securing America and Restoring Justice." It’s time for hard questions about the War on Terror and the laws that have been passed to deal with it since 9/11.
The next segment examines an alarming hostility to freedom of speech on college campuses. John Zmirak is author of "All-American Colleges, Top Schools for Conservatives, Old-Fashioned Liberals and People of Faith" (www.collegeguide.org). He does a survey of trends regarding free speech on college campuses.Read More
What relationship do science and the arts actually have? While assigning much to random chance, science actually argues that there is design and order because it’s always looking for "elegance" in its theories. Dr. Benjamin Wiker, Ph.D, co-author of "A Meaningful World," joins us to look at the tension between various disciplines and how perhaps the tension is actually harmony.
John’s extended boralogue centers on the "silly season" which precedes U.S. elections, when stupid stuff dominates the airwaves as the parties attempt to sway election votes.
Boy Democrats are sure upset about Congressman Foley making sexual advances to House pages. Problem is, a lot of their people did the same thing in the last two decades but they weren’t shocked then.
Also, why are gold and oil in the tank and what does this mean in the long run as the Fed begins to re-inflate an M3 money supply, now estimated at a breathtaking 10% right now?
Finally ideas do have consequences, even in school shootings, but the virulent negative reaction to an op-ed piece by a father whose son was killed at Columbine High School is disturbing.
At show’s end John briefly addresses what people can do to prepare for the future.Read More
