160035 08/27/2016 Social Justice

Have we learned anything by watching the news this summer? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at subjects the media and political candidates refuse to talk about, like the future of our economy, the tendency for politicians to raise taxes and regulate business, and the unpleasant choices we’re left with regarding fiscal policy. When those in power choose instead to focus on toxic narratives, we’re left with deadly consequences.

What is social justice and why is it important? We welcome back economist and author Pat Wood (www.technocracy.news) who discusses the history of social justice, redistribution of wealth, and technocracy as the science behind social engineering. When one group wants what another has, social justice becomes nothing more than legalized covetousness.

Social justice, if left unfettered, will likely result in socialism. Luis Fleischman (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Senior Advisor at the Center for Security Policy, analyzes how socialism has affected Venezuela, where power for the elites has become an end unto itself and the people are the ones who suffer.

John’s quote of the week:
“Politicians will not get out of the way and lower the taxes and lower the regulations to get the small businesses going, to get the jobs going, to get to where we need to get going, going.”

We are taking a vacation this week for our intelligence briefing, Section 6, but John will return next week with analysis on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

160034 08/20/2016 Wrong Side of the Gulf

Sometimes others will write a boralogue for you. This week, John reads a letter from a listener in Canada who discusses multiculturalism and the difference in media perception between Asians and African-Americans. Can we speak about important issues openly or will the politically correct narratives continue to drown out the truth? People are beginning to wake up to the fact that they’re being duped and they’re starting to fight back.

In January, two U.S. Navy riverine patrol boats were detained by the Iranian National Guard in the Persian Gulf. Ray Starmann (www.usdefensewatch.com), Editor of U.S. Defense Watch, draws on his armed forces expertise to give us a detailed account of the event and examines both our defense readiness and the changing culture within the military.

Finally we welcome Olivier Melnick (www.newantisemitism.com), Director of Chosen People Ministries, who looks at the history of anti-Semitism and the rise of a new wave both in the U.S. and around the world that has led to biased news coverage as well as the BDS movement.

John’s quote of the week:
“If the rest of the politically correct crowd wishes to sit back on their dung heap bemoaning what they do, that’s their business. But you and I and all of those who have awakened, we’re moving on.”

As always, join us online for our Section 6 intelligence briefing featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

A controversy is brewing involving an international Christian charity’s activities in the Middle East. We skip the boralogue this week and begin with Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA, who examines Israel’s allegations that a top World Vision employee in the Gaza Strip funneled donations away from charity programs and into the coffers of Hamas.

When the Iran deal materialized last year, we all knew there was more to it than was announced. Jennifer Breedon (www.clarionproject.org), Legal Analyst for the Clarion Project joins us to reveal the dangers behind the deal along with a recently discovered link between the September 11 attacks and Saudi Arabia.

What are the true origins behind the Black Lives Matter movement? Political writer Jim Simpson (www.aim.org) shows how the Left will create divisions in order to further their agenda and how the truth is often pushed aside in favor of narrative.

Has the federal government’s involvement improved our education system? Vicki Alger (www.vickialger.com), Research Fellow at the Independent Institute discusses the difficulties in one-size-fits-all educational programs and offers alternative solutions for parents.

John’s quote of the week:
“Rather than having two people representing different sides of an issue, challenging each other where you can hear the ideas hashed out, people tend to watch what reinforces their own worldview. And even when that is faulty they don’t hear the contradicting evidence because the media are not honestly presenting it.”

With our two major party candidates set for this November’s presidential election, silly season has begun. In this week’s boralogue, John reminds us that politics is a blood sport and facts and reason are usually thrown out of the window in favor of soundbites. A day of reckoning approaches and while most people ignore the warning signs, whoever wins the upcoming election will be the one we chose to deal with it.

Our system of government was created as a series of checks and balances. What happens when one branch begins overstepping its authority? Dr. John Sparks (www.visionandvalues.org), Retired Dean at Grove City College, looks at the recent Supreme Court case involving abortion clinics in Texas and discusses the continuous onslaught of right trumping, being brought to you by the highest court in the land.

Next we play a brief clip from the Financial Sense Newshour of write-in presidential candidate and economist Laurence Kotlikoff (www.kotlikoff.net) explaining the real, and much higher, numbers behind our national debt.

Refugee crises have erupted in a number of countries, largely due to radical Islamists and the violence they perpetrate. But what about Christian refugees who are caught up in the crisis? Author and political pundit Joseph Klein (www.frontpagemag.com) looks at the problems Christians are facing in refugee camps and the Obama administration’s apparent disregard for Christians in favor of admitting more Muslim refugees.

Finally, we revisit the topic of gold and silver with precious metals aficionado Dave Morgan (www.silver-investor.com) who predicts as currencies begin to falter, gold and silver will make a comeback. He also examines what the powers that be may have in store when the financial catastrophe hits.

John’s quote of the week:
“Governments may not get through times like these but people like you and I always do. If we know what’s happening, we can pray and ask God to show us our way through the tsunami waves to come and we can help each other.”

160031 07/30/2016 Emancipation

Our prayers go out to the family and friends of Father Jacques Hamel, priest of a church in Normandy, France, who was killed during mass this week by young ISIS knifemen. We skip the boralogue and welcome back to the show Juliana Taimoorazy (www.victimsofisis.org), President of Iraqi Christian Relief Council, who discusses other persecuted Christians: the Assyrians in Iraq who are faced with the hard choice of leaving their beloved homeland or stay and potentially face the horrors of ISIS.

We revisit a rather grisly topic this week: that of forced organ transplants. Matt Robertson (www.theepochtimes.com), Reporter for the Epoch Times, reveals the horrors of transplants among specific groups of people in China and the media’s lack of coverage of the practice.

Religious liberty is under attack on various fronts in violation of Constitutional rights. Kate Oliveri (www.thomasmore.org), Attorney for the Thomas More Law Center, shares one woman’s encounter with a Michigan health department who denied her right to refuse vaccination for her children based on religious objections.

Are Christians in the West compromising their values to conform to modern culture? Author and speaker Os Guinness (www.osguinness.com) posits that culture and socialistic ideas are combining to threaten the faith of believers. He calls for a revolution in thought and belief from a Christian perspective.

Has the Brexit pointed the way to a resurgence in Christianity? Dr. Steve Turley (www.turleytalks.com), Teacher of Theology at Tall Oaks Classical School in Delaware, discusses the growing trend toward nationalism and predicts that Christianity and the political right will usurp the unsustainable PC narrative in the next few decades.

John’s quote of the week:
“If you look at what the Social Security trustees are saying, the shortfalls in Medicare, the ricketiness of Obamacare with insurers pulling out, and the overall indebtedness of the United States, there is a major train wreck ahead. And once we get on this train, we can’t get off of it.”

160030 07/23/2016 Worldview Conflict

What is driving the conflicts we’ve seen in the past few weeks in France, Germany, Baton Rouge and Orlando? In this week’s boralogue, John examines common threads through these tragedies and shows that in order to solve the problem, we need to stop listening to politically correct elites and focus on the truth: we have a morality problem and a collision of worldviews.

Is the narrative from Black Lives Matter accurate? Heather MacDonald (www.manhattan-institute.org), Fellow at the Manhattan Institute reveals statistics which challenge the account that white police officers are the most dangerous threat to black men today. In fact, African-Americans are much more likely to die from violence in their own communities than in officer-related shootings.

John plays a clip of Dave McAlvany and Kevin Orrick (www.mcalvany.com) from the McAlvany Weekly Commentary where they discuss the possibility that the failed coup in Turkey was orchestrated by President Erdogan to gain a more powerful hold on the country.

Is it a surprise that the EU is floundering under its own weight on a flimsy foundation? Wallace Henley (www.wallacehenley.net), Senior Pastor at Second Baptist Church in Houston, TX discusses how Christianity was purposefully left out of the EU’s formation and how institutions that cater to political correctness are drowning out the Christian worldview today.

Finally this week, we welcome back Bill Forstchen (www.dayofwrathbook.com), History Professor at Montreat College, who analyzes not only the suppression of freedom of speech and thought on undergraduate and college campuses, but also the dangers of ISIS and our unpreparedness as a country to handle their terror campaign.

John’s quote of the week:
“The violence and the murders that you are seeing must be dealt with at the morality and worldview levels, but those are the very areas where the politically correct crowd will not allow us to go.”

As always, join us online for our Section 6 intelligence briefing featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

160029 07/16/2016 See Something, Say Nothing

Events in the past two weeks have proven that we are still a divided nation. Why is that? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the history of progressive humanism and its plan to eradicate what it means to be America, dividing the people in this country and using the friction to further their agenda. America needs to rebuild its foundations and remember who it is.

When Muslims move to the West, can Islam exist without sharia law? Philip Haney (www.wnd.com), Founding Member of Homeland Security, discusses the precepts of sharia and jihad, the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration tactics in North America, and the U.S. government’s complicity in covering up Islamic involvement in terror attacks.

Boris Johnson of UK political fame recently made controversial comments about the Nazis and their plan to unify Europe, even after the demise of the Third Reich. Rejoining us this week is Dennis Cuddy (www.newswithviews.com), historian and former Senior Associate with the Department of Education who examines the secret Nazi plan to gain access to banks and corporations in an effort to establish a centralized European government.

John’s quote of the week:
“Why are we divided? America has forgotten who it is and what its founding goals were and the principle on which it is supposed to be standing.”

160028 07/09/2016 China Threat

The fix is in, or so it would seem, after the FBI’s decision to recommend no charges be brought against Hillary Clinton. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at double standards in law enforcement by deconstructing an episode of Law & Order SVU and tying it to current events. In order to uphold laws they deem important, officials are willing to break other laws. A level playing field is needed.

To achieve a strategic geopolitical advantage, China has resorted to cyber espionage, primarily against Western countries and the United States. We welcome back to the program Joshua Philipp (www.theepochtimes.com), Reporter for the Epoch Times, who discusses the China threat, Project 863, and the particularly gruesome practice of forced organ transplants.

Twenty years ago this month, TWA Flight 800 crashed off the coast of Long Island. Independent author and producer Jack Cashill (www.cashill.com) analyzes the evidence involving faulty reports, a rogue missile test, and a massive government cover-up. He also recounts his experience with the intolerance and biases of the left-leaning media.

John’s quote of the week:
“If the law says that a certain crime is wrong, why don’t other laws have to be upheld? The message is that for the sake of the laws we wish to uphold, we can break other laws. The problem is fungible double standards.”

Uphold Our Freedom

160027 07/02/2016 Uphold Our Freedom

Happy Independence Day everyone! As we celebrate our nation’s 240th birthday this weekend, we look back proudly on our founding documents, including the Constitution, which is today under attack. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at negative rights, which allow freedom and prosperity, and positive rights, which are vague and can limit our freedoms. We need to uphold our rights and fight for them or our free country founded in 1776 may be a thing of the past.

Our military has evolved from those early days of militia and minutemen to one of immense power across the globe. Former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie (www.carlhigbie.com) tells his heroic story of apprehending an international terrorist as well as prevailing over the bureaucracy and political correctness at the highest levels of our armed forces. In order for the dysfunction to stop, we need to be able to have an honest discussion about our problems and our enemies.

The world economy is headed for a free fall. John plays a clip of Jim Puplava from the Financial Sense Newshour (www.financialsense.com) regarding low interest rates and its effect on global finances.

Do we need a convention of states as mentioned in Article V of the Constitution? Joining us for a roundtable discussion are Kyle Maichle (www.heartland.org), Manager for Constitutional Reform at the Heartland Institute, who believes a convention will be successful in steering this country in the right direction; and Richard Fry (www.defendnotamend.com), general counsel for the Patriot Coalition, who believes we must vote in the right personnel to uphold the Constitution we already have.

John’s quote of the week:

“In free societies, the laws are limited and very clear. In dictatorships, the laws are many and vague, so anyone can be guilty when they have to be.”

We are taking time off to celebrate our nation’s birthday this weekend, so there will be no intelligence brief. However, Section 6 will return next week.

160026 06/25/2016 PC Interference

Given all the evidence emerging after the shootings in Orlando, who should be held to blame for the massacre? The media would have you believe the answer is Christians. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at clear bias in media and leftist groups as the massive spin machine holds America in contempt – not ISIS or Islamic terrorism. Christians and conservatives are the guilty parties. For leftist elites, they’re in it to spin it, not to espouse the truth.

There’s a thin line between eliminating hate speech and suppressing free speech. Joshua Philipp (www.theepochtimes.com), Reporter for the Epoch Times, discusses how Facebook and Twitter continue to allow the promotion of terrorism on social media, but those who dare to expose terrorism with the truth have their accounts suspended. Traditional views of morality are changing which allow for policies like these to gain a foothold.

The Obama administration’s negotiation with Iran regarding their nuclear program is now being exposed as a package of secret side deals and lies fed to the American public. Meira Svirsky (www.clarionproject.org), Editor at the Clarion Project, examines the futility of snap back provisions in connection with European business as well as ineffective inspection policies thanks to a back room deal between Iran and the IAEA.

With talk of Islamic terror and the motivations behind the Orlando shooting, we welcome back to the program Daniel Akbari (www.stophonorkilling.com), attorney and expert on Islamic law to have an honest discussion regarding what the Koran and supporting documents actually say concerning sharia law and the difference between Muslims and Islamists.

John’s quote of the week:
“Expressions of support and sympathy from Christians and Christian churches which poured in (after the Orlando shootings) were rejected by the gay media because, of course, the Christians – not radical Islam – were responsible for this mess in the first place. Oh and by the way, if you believe in the Second Amendment, you might be responsible for it too.”

160025 06/18/2016 Stealth Jihad

Will gun control eliminate or even lessen the spate of mass shootings like the ones we’ve experienced in the past 36 months? In this week’s boralogue, John shows that gun regulations ultimately harm law abiding citizens, like those who may need to protect themselves from mass shooters, and will do nothing to stop criminals’ intent on wreaking havoc. If allowed to continue, political correctness – false narratives about gun control, refusing to correctly identify the problem, etc – will only succeed in getting us killed.

How prevalent is silent jihad in America? Joining us is Clare Lopez (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Vice President for Research and Analysis at the Center for Security Policy, who examines the interrelation of Islam and Sharia, and reveals the true motivation behind the Gulen Movement – a network of schools in the U.S. designed to promote not just Turkish culture but also jihadist teachings.

With the Brexit vote coming up next week, we look at the EU’s beginning and how the CIA had a hand in setting it up. Alex Newman (www.thenewamerican.com), correspondent for the New American discusses the push for a global government in establishing the EU and the goal of creating transnational regions with no sovereignty and unelected courts to rule over them.

Good news in the area of tamping down government overreach. Reed Hopper (www.pacificlegal.org), Environmental Attorney for Pacific Legal Foundation shares his recent legal win in the Supreme Court guaranteeing the rights of property owners to challenge federal agency abuses of the Clean Water Act.

John’s quote of the week:
“Why didn’t we have large numbers of shooting like this 50 years ago? It’s that the morality of the country has changed and that’s why you’re seeing the increase in violence. Until you get that under control, you won’t get the violence under control – no matter how many laws you pass.”

160024 06/11/2016 Core Implosion

The world’s political pendulum may be swinging back to the Right, and it has those in mainstream media all in a frenzy. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the global pushback on leftist progressive thinking and the media’s response that it’s fascism. But it’s those on the Left determined to quash free speech who are behaving like fascists. The solution is for us to insist on the right to speak the truth.

A school textbook sales rep spoke the truth in an undercover video and revealed a fact about education in America: it’s all about money. Joining us is William Estrada (www.hslda.org), Director of Federal Relations for Home School Legal Defense, who examines the problems of both the Common Core curriculum and a national database of school children information as well as advocates for decentralizing our education system.

Picking up where he left off last week, Dr. Geoff Shaw (www.counterinsurgency.com), President of Alexandrian Defense Group, discusses U.S. government policies leading up to the Vietnam War, how our State Department today allows ideologies to influence politics, and President Obama’s speech in Cairo that touched off the Arab Spring.

John’s quote of the week:
“Being unable to solve the big problems and becoming a large unaccountable bureaucratic machine, the Brussels bulldozers have tangled member states up in all sorts of regulatory nonsense and floods of immigration problems, while telling the populaces of those countries to like it or lump it. But some of the population has a better idea – they want to leave it.”
