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.

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.

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
