160018 04/30/2016 Separation from Reality

It’s becoming clearer who the two candidates for U.S. president are going to be this fall. With all the campaign nonsense being discussed, we have to ask: is this the best we can do? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at serious issues facing the planet, including the upcoming Israeli-Palestinian peace summit and political reactions from Europe to Israel to Russia. Whoever our next president is will need to ignore the nonsense and address these sober matters.

War in Syria has raged for many years now, but do we really know what’s happening on the ground there? Jonathan Spyer (www.rubincenter.org), Director of the Rubin Center for Research in International Affairs, has covered the Syrian war from the beginning and discusses the transition from battling a brutal regime to more sectarian violence as well as the possibility of independence for the Kurdish people.

How do politically correct leftists get around that pesky First Amendment to shut down free speech? In a second boralogue, John examines consensus thinking, self-censorship, and using institutional racism as a way to inhibit speech. Free speech is under attack. We need to tell those attacking it that we will not sit down and we will not shut up!

Could we be heading for some cold times ahead, despite the constant trumpeting of global warming activists? We welcome back John Casey (www.veritence.net), President of Veritence Corporation, who reveals that in the next 25-30 years, we will see record low energy output from the sun, decreasing temperatures, which will affect not only crops, but also the frequency of earthquakes and volcanic activity.

John’s quote of the week:
“Bear in mind that the people today telling us that we have to self-sensor when we talk about Islam or some other minority group, is the same group that had open season on Christianity in academia and the media for the last 50 years.”

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.

160017 04/23/2016 Not as it Seems

Socialism is gaining popularity in the United States, from Bernie Sanders hawking free everything and demanding higher taxes to university curricula disparaging capitalism. In this week’s boralogue, John looks deeper at socialism and asks: why, after failing every time it has been implemented, would anyone ever consider it a viable option? Socialist regimes bemoan capitalism at every turn but ultimately seek it out when all the money runs dry. America needs to stand up now and shout down this failed system!

Chinese communist leaders are continuing a campaign of religious persecution across their country. Bob Fu (www.chinaaid.org), Founder and President of China Aid Association, examines the government’s motivations and shows that even legally sanctioned Christian churches are experiencing forced confessions, jail time, and even death.

Non-Muslims in Pakistan are persecuted as well through their dangerous blasphemy laws. Author and blogger Shamila Ghyas (www.twitter.com/ShamilaGhyas) gives examples of the laws’ power and goes on to explain that most Muslims are non-violent and need stand up to the extremists.

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Ecuador on April 16th, killing hundreds and injuring thousands. Wayne Stauble, a real estate developer in the country, describes the devastating aftermath of the quake and the need for preparedness in a time of crisis. Our prayers go out to those in Ecuador.

Finally, what exactly happened to Malaysian Airlines flight 370 in March 2014? H. Richard Austin (www.thecomingofarmageddon.com), financial analyst and author of The Coming of Armageddon, analyzes factual evidence of what happened to the flight and proposes that the plane was hijacked for future use in a terrorist event.

John’s quote of the week:
“The problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of somebody else’s money. Socialism has never survived by itself and has always had to turn to capitalism to bail itself out.”

False Flag

160016 04/16/2016 False Flag

What is the true definition of fascism? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at different events in the West today and shows that fascism is rearing its ugly head again. It’s not, as many will have you believe, the attitude of anyone disagreeing with politically correct views. Fascism is agreeing that utilitarian state views should trump the religious principles of its people. We’ve been here before and it didn’t end well.

What would you do if you uncovered corruption and terrorism at your job? Sibel Edmonds (www.boilingfrogspost.com), Founder and President of the National Security Whistleblower’s Association, describes her dismissal from the FBI and subsequent harassment after uncovering security breaches and cover-ups at higher levels. She discusses false flag terror events, the military industrial complex, and an operation code-named Gladio.

Those with autism or Asperger’s syndrome are often misunderstood. We welcome Janet Lintala (www.loveautismhealth.com), Founder of Autism Health!, who shares her journey as a parent and her work with non-prescriptive solutions to help those on the spectrum.

John’s quote of the week:
“The real issue most concerning is the one that most people don’t want to address – the idea that a utilitarian will of an all-powerful state trumps the religious and moral consciences of the people of that state. This is truly dangerous territory.”

Nothing for Something

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast


160015 04/09/2016 Nothing for Something

A mountain of documents known as the Panama Papers have been leaked exposing shell companies, offshore accounts, and tax havens of hundreds of influential people around the world. In this week’s extended boralogue, John links these papers with next week’s tax deadline here in the U.S., explaining patterns found throughout history in taxation and the economy, showing the bumpy road America and those in the West are traveling down.

The FBI’s battle with Apple ended when the Feds cracked the cell phone of one of the San Bernardino terrorists. Columnist and political analyst Liz Peek (www.lizpeek.com) examines Apple’s decision to ignore the government and stand for customers’ privacy as well as the legalities of the FBI’s initial request to break into the phone.

Puerto Rico, an American territory, is teetering on the brink of insolvency. Charles Tatelbaum (www.trippscott.com), a bankruptcy attorney at Tripp Scott Law Firm in Florida, discusses whether the island government will be eligible to file for bankruptcy, and how residents there and on the mainland are being affected.

Donald Trump is all over the news, leading the 2016 GOP race for the president. Rejoining the program this week is Pat Wood (www.technocracy.news), Founder of the August Corporation, who looks at Trump’s technocratic nature and what is to come for America, regardless of who sits in the Oval Office next year. Technocracy is opposed to capitalism and free enterprise, but many on the campaign trail support it. Be careful what you wish for in needing someone to fix Washington – you may not get what you’re expecting.

John’s quote of the week:
“There is a complexity in the United States tax code, which no one can really know or understand, except for a few arcane people and those skilled in the dark arts!”

Running in the Wrong Direction

160014 04/02/2016 Running in the Wrong Direction

Politicians will applaud a law when it benefits their narrative, but will speak out against the same law if it’s used against them. In this week’s boralogue, John shows how the culture wars have spawned this dichotomy and how new rights are declared constitutional and begin crowding out well-established freedoms actually found in the Constitution. It shifts the culture and sooner or later we find we are running in the wrong direction.

Documents have revealed that the U.S. government covered up Iran’s involvement in the September 2012 attack in Benghazi. Ken Timmerman (www.kentimmerman.com), President of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran discusses Iran’s participation in the raid, cover-up at the highest ranks, and the true motivations behind Islamic jihad.

President Obama’s legacies both in the Middle East and at home have largely failed. Shoshana Bryen (www.jewishpolicycenter.org), Senior Director of the Jewish Policy Center joins us to examine the call once again for an Israel-Palestine peace process and the foreign policy strategies of not only the current president, but also the candidates vying to be the next.

We have established that we are running in the wrong direction in every way, but what can we do to change the course? Clare Lopez (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Vice President at the Center for Security Policy offers her solutions, including a coherent and strong national security policy, staying out of the Sunni-Shia fight, and knowing who you’re up against and having the courage to say it.

Finally, John plays a clip of financial expert Jim Rickards, who explains the inner workings of the Fed balance sheet and disproves the notion that the Fed is actually in trouble when it comes to insolvency.

John’s quote of the week:
“If you don’t believe in a fixed morality and a fixed Constitution and values which really mean something, then anything can be anything when it needs to be or ignored when it needs to be.”

Forgettism

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast


160013 03/26/2016 Forgettism

Loss of identity and purpose can be alarming. John shows us just how alarming in this week’s boralogue as he connects the tragic bombings in Belgium, President Obama’s trip to Cuba, and the competing worldviews in the 2016 U.S. election cycle. There is a purposeful forgetting about where we came from and who we are, and it is causing more forceful worldviews to surface. We must remember.

The primary worldview surfacing to replace freedom and liberty is Marxism. Philip Carl Salzman (www.mcgill.ca), Anthropology Professor at McGill University in Quebec, discusses the century-long infiltration of Marxism in academia and correctly defines two problematic outcomes of it: multiculturalism and social justice.

In an extended boralogue, John exposes the truth behind everyone’s T-shirt hero, Che Guevara and Cuba’s communist history, and shows how socialism needs capitalism to rescue it from its own failures.

Finally, we welcome Michael Curtis (www.polisci.rutgers.edu), Professor Emeritus at Rutgers University, who examines the geopolitics of Russia, the Middle East peace process, and the need for America’s foreign policy to improve.

John’s quote of the week:
“The problem we are having in the West is we are listening to several different narratives of who we are, where we come from, and those values upon which we stand. One of those narratives is a solid one: the original one that stood, created Western civilization, and has lasted for 1500 years, and it still works for anyone who tries it.”

We wish everyone a safe and happy Easter.

We are taking a break from Section 6 this holiday weekend, but it will return next week with analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

Willful Blindness

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast


160012 03/19/2016 Willful Blindness

There are blips on the world stage radar that are projecting what we’ll see in the months and years to come. In this week’s boralogue, John takes a look at what these blips are telling us and shows that there is a willful blindness concerning global ideologies. There is a chasm of truth between the realities of the world and both politicians’ promises and politically correct narratives. Those who understand the realities will be better positioned when the coming storms hit.

Why did Libya suddenly appear on the world stage a few years ago as a threat to world security? Ellen Brown (www.ellenbrown.com), Founder of the Public Banking Institute, reveals that the upheaval in Libya related to gold and silver, rebel-based central banks, and details from Hilary Clinton’s emails.

The Christ at the Checkpoint Conference concluded this week in Bethlehem in the West Bank. Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting, attended the conference and discusses its anti-Zionist narrative that blames Israel for all wrongs in the current conflict with Palestine.

John Kerry and the State Department declared this week that Christian persecution by ISIS in the Middle East is officially deemed genocide. Juliana Taimoorazy (www.iraqichristianrelief.org), President of the Iraqi Christian Relief Council, examines the situation and asks: why did it take so long for this declaration to come about?

How did the U.S. get to the point of self-loathing and history revision that casts itself in such a negative light? Former Idaho State legislator Curtis Bowers (www.agendadocumentary.com) joins us to reveal Marxism for what it truly is and discuss the willful blindness of those that fall victim to its false narrative. We need to hear and understand the truth or the enemy will win.

John’s quote of the week:
“Gramscian Marxism paraded through our culture starting in the 1930s, masquerading often as progressivism – sometimes it’s called socialism – and all of those “isms” are pretty much the same thing. We keep changing the names to protect the guilty. It fails every time you turn around.”

American Sleepwalk

160011 03/12/2016 American Sleepwalk

News stories are often negative in nature in order to interest viewers. In this week’s boralogue, John takes a look at the last 25 years, full of angst and worry concerning a myriad of situations, and a sense now that negativity is on the rise. Things come and go; often things we thought were important at the time. But God does not change. Trust in Him to guide you through the angst.

It has been reported that Homeland Security officials have removed nearly 1,000 names of suspected terrorists from the U.S. terror watch list. Chris Farrell (www.judicialwatch.org), Director of Investigations and Research at Judicial Watch, reveals why these names were scrubbed and how the redefinition of words and thought played a part.

The definition of psychological illness is quickly changing as mental health screenings could become mandatory at your next doctor’s office visit. Correspondent for The New American Alex Newman (www.thenewamerican.com) weighs in on this, exploring how Obamacare is paving the way, and the dangers of subjective diagnoses.

Do you know the difference between the Dark Ages and the Middle Ages? Scholar Tim LeCroy (www.christourkingcolumbia.org), Pastor of Christ Our King Presbyterian Church in Columbia, Missouri, explains the difference and shows how virtually all systems in the West has its basis in Christianity.

Finally, we welcome Nick Adams (www.nickadamsinamerica.com), President of the Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness, who analyzes the perils of political correctness and suggests how we can fight it and say we’re not going to take it anymore!

John’s quote of the week:
“If we look at politically correct ideology, it’s an assault on success; it enforces mediocrity; it suppresses the robust debate we need in a free society; and in many cases literally it’s killing us.”

Super Tuesday came and went with Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton emerging as the front-runners for the White House. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the GOP Establishment’s panic at a Trump presidency and reveals Trump’s popularity stems from his ability to be a street fighter and use the same tactics as liberals have these past several decades. Trump is proving if you can’t beat them, mock them.

It’s important that nations in the West not forget their identity and what made them great. Peter Hammond (www.frontline.org.za), Head of Frontline Fellowship in southern Africa, joins us to discuss the corrosive effects of political correctness and the similarities between Marxism and Islam.

Islamists have a clear understanding of who they are. Herb London (www.londoncenter.org), President of the London Center for Policy Research, examines multiculturalism and its unfortunate outcomes and advocates for open and honest debate in the marketplace of ideas. The West should be defending liberty – but we’re not.

With political correctness and multiculturalism running rampant, you have to ask why the Left is so fascinated with Islam? Daniel Greenfield (www.frontpagemag.com), Shillman Journalism Fellow with the David Horowitz Freedom Center, rounds out the program this week by uncovering a hierarchy within victim groups and why Christians are singled out for persecution more than any other group.

John’s quote of the week:
“Remember Loeffler’s number one rule: never appoint the people to get you out of a problem who got you into it in the first place. If they knew what they were doing, you wouldn’t be there.”

Pandora’s Phone

160009 02/27/2016 Pandora’s Phone

In response to a lawsuit by the FBI, a California judge has ordered Apple Corporation to unlock an iPhone used by Syed Farook, one of the San Bernardino shooters. In this week’s boralogue, John asks if the FBI is granted a backdoor to this cell phone, will it stop there or will they be given unfettered access to spy on all Americans? For the sake of security, we are once again being asked to sacrifice a little bit of liberty.

Diving deeper into the iPhone case, we welcome John McAfee (www.mcafee2016.com), developer of the first commercial anti-virus program and current Libertarian candidate for president, who discusses the FBI’s true motivations and shows us why our government needs to change its perception of hackers and cyber security – before it’s too late.

Occasionally, a story of how God works in a person’s life to inspire and uplift others is too incredible not to share. Richard Peters, retired Seal Team 6 member and head of Armor Up Evangelism, recounts his harrowing experience with spiritual warfare in a Libyan prison and how that led to his current ministry encouraging others in the Lord.

Chinese leaders have maintained a steady campaign of encroachment in the South China Sea, establishing military bases on hastily constructed islands. Todd Crowell (www.thediplomat.com), Japan correspondent for Turkey’s Anadolu news agency, joins us from Tokyo to analyze China’s plan for regional hegemony and gauge reactions from the rest of East Asia.

John’s quote of the week:
“If you destroy the very legal instrument which creates and preserves liberty, what protects you in the flood that follows if you pull it down? The answer is: nothing.”

160008 02/20/2016 Indications

We offer our prayers and support to the family and friends of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia who passed away last week. His death has stirred up a political firestorm as to who the next appointee will be. In this week’s boralogue, John takes a look at what the Constitution says, how it’s interpreted, and the dangers of judicial activism in the country’s highest court. Does the law mean what it says or does it mean what the elites want it to mean right now?

We then shift gears as John analyzes a recent report from Russia’s newspaper, Pravda, detailing a high-level meeting between Vladimir Putin and Henry Kissinger. Worldwide financial systems may be coming to an end soon. Make ready the chessboard as international players begin jockey for position. Where will the United States land?

Egypt, a strategic player on our global chessboard, is uniquely positioned in Middle East affairs. Joining us this week is Raymond Stock (www.meforum.org), Instructor of Arabic at Louisiana State University and former resident of Egypt, who discusses the country’s succession of leadership in the past seven years and its relationship with Israel and with the Islamists who thirst for control.

Finally, we swing to China and the hundreds of millions of Christians who reside there. Elizabeth Kendal (www.elizabethkendal.com), Adjunct Research Fellow at Melbourne School of Theology, exposes the rarely reported persecution of Christians by the Communists party in China and the slow global infiltration of Marxist ideology into schools, media, and entertainment.

John’s quote of the week:
“In the ongoing environment of redefinition, the courts are discovering all sorts of ‘new’ rights in the Constitution that are created out of thin air. New rights trump old established rights, which are clearly established in the Constitution. If the law doesn’t mean what it says, does it mean anything at all?”

When signs converge ahead of a looming storm, what do we need most to get us through? In this week’s boralogue, John compares today’s portents with those facing our nation in the early 1930s. Sprawling bureaucracy, executive orders, and taking from one group to give to another are not new concepts. People can easily become depressed when faced with such as these. What they need is hope. Not hopey changey slogans, but real hope that comes from the Lord Himself.

Slow economic growth and questionable central bank policies have driven global stock markets down this week. We welcome to the show Jim Puplava (www.financialsense.com), President of Puplava Financial Services, who discusses how the U.S. market is behaving versus Europe, Japan, and China; the dangers of negative interest rates; and what we actually need to improve our economy.

Russia, with its tentacles spread across the global chessboard, is raising eyebrows in Europe and the Middle East. Andrew Kuchins (www.ceres.georgetown.edu), East European expert at Georgetown University, examines Russia’s economy in light of low oil prices, and the resultant increase in military strategy in Syria and Ukraine.

It’s been 50 years since the papal encyclical Nostra Aetate exhibited the Catholic Church’s view on Jews and the State of Israel. Was its implementation successful or did it fail? Susan Warner (www.israelolivetree.org), Founder of Olive Tree Ministries, rejoins us to analyze the effects of the document and asks whether current actions by the Church promote or discourage anti-Semitism.

John’s quote of the week:
“People need hope. Hope is the expectation of a purpose and good things in the future even when things look bleak…. Christians have hope and we need to give that hope to other people…. We need to shine in the midst of this.”
