So many things are buzzing, it’s hard to stay on the "perspective"
track we began last week. Nevertheless….
In more and more homes, newspapers arrive at the front door, pile up unopened and unread until they go out the back to the recycle bin. People are obtaining news from multiple sources on the internet and alternative media, leaving newspapers with financial problems. The entire face of media is changing, affecting our lives and how we do things from politics to church. Mike Malone (www.abcnews.com), former editor of Forbes ASAP magazine, is also author of "Bill & Dave: How Hewlett and Packard built the World’s Greatest Company."
John’s boralogue is extended today to cover events in the Middle East, notably the 59th anniversary of the founding of Israel and the 40th anniversary of the June, 1967 war.
The show rounds out with important news stories.Read More
As we move towards summer, the programs follow a traditional pattern of delving more into perspective than news. The next two weeks, guests will deal with media-related issues.
Quite a few people have noticed the growing similarity between Socialist Party (D) and Socialist Party (R), and attempts of each to bludgeon the other into silence. Former CBS news correspondent Bernard Goldberg (www.bernardgoldberg.com) discusses, among other things, his book entitled, “Crazies to the Left of Me, Wimps to the Right.”
John’s boralogue examines the Virginia Tech shootings leading to the conclusion that progressive academia’s group-think and no tolerance for violence, not even in self defense, actually enabled the tragedy and hindered the students from defending themselves.Read More
More evidence piles up in congressional hearings that the John Doe
#2 seen by numerous eyewitnesses along with Timothy McVeigh just prior to the bombing of the Murrah Office building was of Middle Eastern extraction. McVeigh and Terry Nichols seem to have been “lilly whites” recruited by Islamic terrorists to do the deed.
Still the media and two presidential administrations have ignored these developments. Wes Vernon from Accuracy in Media
(www.aim.org) joins us.
In the last part of today’s program, John ties together political changes in England, France and Germany and how these link to the current geopolitical changes. Avi Lipkin (www.vicmord.com) rejoins us again this week. We’re still on schedule towards a rendezvous with a global crisis point somewhere in the next 24 months and many factions are attempting to maximize their position when it does.
John’s boralogue examines why hate laws are doomed to fail, largely because they begin by hating something and run downhill from there.Read More
Just when you thought it was safe to express your opinion, hate speech legislation is roaring through Congress. So far U.S. hate legislation only adds extra penalties for already-existing crimes, but it’s clear the goal is to ultimately criminalize speech itself, similar to laws in other countries. John’s boralogue underscores the fallacy of hate crimes and then Glen Levy from the Alliance Defense Fund (www.alliancedefensefund.org) joins us to discuss the latest bills in Congress.
Whatever happened to the case of former U.S. Army specialist Michael New, who refused to wear a U.N. uniform in the 1990s? A few weeks ago the Supreme Court brought the long journey to an end.
Michael’s father Daniel New (www.mikenew.com) joins SOS to discuss the long-term ramifications of his son’s case and secret Presidential Decision Directive 25.
We’ll jump then to Israel for a look at the future of Prime Minister Olmert’s government. Avi Lipkin (www.vicmord.com), author of “Is Fanatic Islam a Global Threat?” returns to the program.Read More
