Happy Memorial Day everyone.
We honor our country’s fallen heroes by examining the Constitution and how this nation was founded.
John’s boralogue explores our once-guaranteed freedom of religion and the erosion of that freedom, especially in the military. It’s once more “don’t ask, don’t tell” in the armed forces, only this time it involves religion. Christians are frequently called “haters,” but it’s Christians who serve to feed the hungry, heal the sick, provide shelter for the homeless and they are often the first on the ground during disasters.
Technology has certainly emerged as essential in our lives, with cell phones and computers helping us. As information has expanded, private companies and governments have initiated data collection programs to “better serve” you, the user. But how can those databases be used against us, and is it a violation of both privacy and the Constitution? Bruce Schneier (www.schneier.com), Chief Technology Officer of Resilient Systems, says we’re making it up as we go along; it’s a complex question. Who has oversight of the process, and do the benefits outweigh privacy concerns? Moreover what is the future of rights under this new system?
How did we get here? We have been examining the questions surrounding worldview issues shaping our country the past century. This week we’ll look at the Catholic Church’s internal struggle with Marxist ideas masquerading as Christian ones. Cliff Kincaid (www.aim.org), Director of the Center for Investigative Journalism at Accuracy in Media, discusses the gradual infiltration into the Church of Gramscian Marxism and how that has manifested in today’s liberation theology.
Following this thread, Marxist infiltration of the Church was predicted nearly 20 years ago by the author and biblical scholar, Dr. Malachi Martin, a former Jesuit priest. John finishes this week’s program by reviewing interviews with Dr. Martin from both Art Bell’s show and Steel on Steel in the 1990s. It is sobering to realize how accurate his insights into the future are borne out by events today.
Dr. Malachi Martin was a former Jesuit priest, Vatican historian and close associate of Pope John XXIII. He has authored many books about his Vatican findings including The Keys of This Blood and Windswept House.
This set contains all seven discussions John had with Dr. Martin in the 1990s before his death in 1999. Dr. Martin details shocking allegations of Satanic practices within the Vatican as far back as 1963. One such alleged event was the ‘Enthronement of the Fallen Angel Lucifer’ on June 29th 1963. This was done within the citadel by a cadre of cardinals and other ranked Vatican officials.

There has been a steady movement for several decades to establish a Marxist government in this country. Suspending the boralogue this week, we take a look at Antonio Gramsci’s arm of Marxism and socialism in order to examine whether or not it will boot Judeo-Christianity not just out of the marketplace of ideas but out of politics as well. Joining us to discuss this is New Zealand author Trevor Loudon (www.trevorloudon.com). John and Trevor analyze the infiltration of Marxist ideals into the arenas of congress, global governments, journalism, education, economy, and religious organizations in order to forecast where our country is headed. “This is a mighty clash,” Trevor says, “between good and evil. And right now evil is winning.”
Who has chain of title to the land currently occupied by Israel and the Palestinians? As we continue our thread from last week on both the origins and future of Israel, we welcome to the program Salomon Benzimra (www.cilr.org), Co-Founder of Canadians for Israel’s Legal Rights. In answering that question, he explains the origins of the San Remo Conference, the difference between legal and illegal occupation, and details the history of Jews and Arabs in a disputed land that Israel legally holds the title to.
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 political activities of the Vatican as a member of the global community.Read More
By now you’ve heard about the attempted violence at the Mohammed cartoon drawing contest this week in Garland, Texas. What’s more interesting has been the media’s reaction to it. In this week’s boralogue, John points out the fallacies and self-contradictory nature of progressive thinking. In playing a clip from Chris Matthews’s show on MSNBC, John counterpoints many of the errors made by their terrorism “expert.”
Among the many issues pushed to the forefront this week in the thwarted terrorist attack, the question of whether Muslims are able to acclimate to life in the United States was one not featured in the main stream media. Never fear, dear listener – we ask the hard questions! Here to answer them is sharia law expert and Muslim turned Christian attorney Daniel Akbari (www.stophonorkilling.com). He reveals that to the Muslim, sharia and honor killings take precedence over the Constitution in America, and clarifies the real definition of phobia.
Is there a push to force Israel back to its indefensible 1967 borders? Joining us on the program to answer that is Dr. Eugene Kontorovich (www.law.northwestern.edu), Law Professor at Northwestern University. He explains UN Resolutions 181 and 242 as well as the results of the San Remo Conference in the formation of the nation of Israel and the borders of the Middle East.
Join us for our Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week, John takes an extensive look at the Trans Pacific Partnership and the implications should it pass.

Christine Lagarde of the IMF, President Obama, and Pope Francis are all drooling anthropogenic global warming – bring on the carbon tax! The Vatican hosted a confab this week about global warming. In his boralogue, John highlights the socialist buzz words found in UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s keynote address at the Vatican. It seems ‘sustainable development’ is not only the main topic of the speech, it also gets the drool flowing. We’ll take a look at sustainability this week.
When the Soviet Union collapsed and the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, what was a socialist to do? Thank goodness the concept of global warming came along a few years later. And with it came the new, rather vague, concept of sustainability. We welcome to the program Dr. Peter Wood (www.nas.org), President of the National Association of Scholars, who sheds some light on this popular issue. Several college campuses offer sustainability courses, but is it more about indoctrination and less about education? “It’s a shame in this country,” Peter says, “when the institution most dedicated to free speech has become the institution most hostile to free speech.”
This week, a massive earthquake struck Nepal, killing more than 5,000, injuring twice that many, and toppling thousands of homes and historic buildings. With the casualty numbers sure to rise, Dr. Paul Williams, M.D. (www.whenallplansfail.com), author of the emergency preparedness series When All Plan Fail, rejoins us to talk about the human toll and what we can do to help.
You’ve heard us mention on the program that the United States is slowly becoming an oligarchic dictatorship. Ellen Brown (www.publicbankinginstitute.org), Founder and Senior Advisor of the Public Banking Institute, discusses what that would look like. She also shows how the Trans Pacific Partnership is one of the catalysts pushing us toward this oligarchy.
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 rumblings of war on the global chessboard. You can feel it coming.Read More
Ethiopian Christians were killed by ISIS this week in Libya. Could that butchery be headed across the Atlantic? We jump into the fray this week with Chris Farrell (www.judicialwatch.org), Director of Investigations & Research for Judicial Watch. He discusses the legitimacy of ISIS staging areas a few miles across the U.S.-Mexico border near Juarez.
Expanding on this, Retired INS Special Agent Michael Cutler (www.michaelcutler.net) rejoins us on the program and uncovers critical problems with immigration procedures. ISIS on our southern borders is a serious issue, but terrorists have already set up shop inside the U.S., thanks in part to questionable enforcement policies.
We hear “Bush lied, people died.” Do we hear the same about Hilary Clinton when it comes to Benghazi? Daniel Greenfield (www.frontpagemag.com), Shillman Journalism Fellow with the David Horowitz Freedom Center, examines the Libyan war and looks at anti-U.S. bias from the left that is designed to weaken America and give strength to its enemies.
This past Sunday, April 19, marked the 20th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. Even after two decades, there are questions that remain unanswered. Independent researcher Dr. Wendy Painting (www.lonewolfresearch.com) explores not only the theory that Timothy McVeigh acted as a lone wolf terrorist, but also the possibility that undercover government agents were involved.
Join us for our Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week, John takes an extensive look at the background of Islam, the differences between Shia and Sunni sects, and the current proxy wars involving Islamic countries.Read More
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.

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
In this week’s abbreviated boralogue, John shies away from the unimportant questions being asked about President Obama – is he a Christian?, is he a communist? – and focuses more on the dynamics. Why has he turned his back on Israel? Where did our president’s ideologies come from?
This leads directly to our conversation with Dr. Paul Kengor, Ph.D., (www.visionandvalues.org), professor of political science at Grove City College in Pennsylvania. Professor Kengor delves into Barack Obama’s background and illuminates the Communist and Islamic mentors in the early life of our president, and how influential those experiences are to him today.
Building on this knowledge, John speaks with Avi Davis (www.americanfreedomalliance.org), President of the American Freedom Alliance. He examines the topic of moral equivalency in the wake of Obama’s comments comparing the Crusades with violent Islamic jihad at the National Prayer Breakfast recently.
Finally Professor Luis Fleischman (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org) from Florida Atlantic University and Senior Advisor at the Center for Security Policy highlights South American issues including the current situation in post-Chavez Venezuela, as well as the death of Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman, and how Iran may be involved in both countries.
Join us for our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring commentary by John on important stories making news around the world. This week, John analyzes ethics and discusses the fallout following Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to Congress this week.Read More
