Boy was this a shocking week! With shocking revelations about government scandals and everyone was just shocked at how shocking it really was. The real issue is whether or not anything will ever be done as Washington bureaucracies circle the wagons. John’s boralogue kicks off the show with a survey of the emerging scandals, and additional questions that now need to be asked, especially about Obamacare and other agendas. John begins by reviewing the three rules of bureaucracies.
What is the connection between the Benghazi massacre and the Boston marathon bombings? Didn’t think there was one? Well that’s the problem with political correctness, because our government is operating on a politically correct plane while reality exists on another. Clare Lopez from the Center for Security Policy (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.com) and The Clarion Project (www.clarionproject.org) is our first guest today.
The day of death panels in Obamacare is materializing as we watch. Many hospitals already have them. Dr. Marilyn Singleton, MD, JD, with the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (www.aapsonline.org) is both a doctor and attorney, who explains how patients will have to negotiate what is an emerging minefield in the world of hospitals.
We’re approaching summertime when we focus more on perspective pieces rather than the news chasing that goes on during the winter.
President Obama delivered the commencement address at Ohio State University last weekend, but the speech tended to be a lesson in malformed civics which needs serious correction. John’s boralogue dissects the numerous errors and contradictions in President’s speech, using sound clips from the event.
Then Roger Pilon from the Cato Institute (www.cato.org) joins John for a discussion of the distortion of American civics that has taken place in academia and how this needs to be corrected.
The book, “The Harbinger,” has not only become a best-seller but has created quite a bit of controversy. So in the spirit of Petrus Romanus and other such recent interviews, author Jonathan Cahn (www.hopeoftheworld.org) joins us for the remainder of the program to see what it’s all about.
130018 05/04/2013 Classic vs. Progressive Liberalism
Greetings Steelings. Busy show today.
John’s boralogue keys on last week’s interview with former Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin (ret.) from the Family Research Council (www.frc.org) by pursuing this week’s announcement that the Pentagon was going to court martial members of the armed forces who proselytize, which caused quite a row among Christian groups. This came in the wake of Army training materials claiming that Evangelicals and Catholics represent a terror threat.
Then Elizabeth Kendal (rlprayerbulletin.blogspot.com) joins us from Melbourne, Australia to report on the extensive human trafficking network extending from the Sudan through Egypt to the Sinai Desert with many corrupt hands involved involved to keep it going.
Next, we’ll continue the ongoing effort to separate radical Islamists from the average Muslim. Dr. Michael Coffman, Ph.D., (www.americaplundered.com) returns to the program for a discussion of his new book, “Radical Islam in the House.”
We’ve described many times how progressives hijacked the Democratic Party in the 1960s, so much so that today’s millennial liberals don’t know the difference between traditional and classical liberalism. Prof. William Rorabaugh is professor of American history at the University of Washington and co-author of the book, “Takeover: How the Left’s Quest for Social Justice Corrupted Liberalism.”Read More
Media coverage of the Boston bombing has served as a stellar example of the “template test” where their reporting methodology before, during, and after shifted to match ideology rather than honestly reporting the obvious. John’s extended boralogue analyzes the history of this progression.
There’s a relationship being forged between hate speech or hate organizations and the potential for terrorism. As it plays out, the logic will goes: if you’re not politically correct, you’re an extremist guilty of hate, thereby mentally unbalanced, thereby not entitled to bear arms, home school, healthcare, etc. It’s at developing stages right now but forming rapidly. Jerry Boykin is executive vice president with the Family Research Council. (www.frc.org)
Then, the State of New York has begun subpoenaing patient records from psychiatric professionals and matching them with gun records to see if owners will be allowed to keep their weapons. It’s questionable whether this is even legal under HIPPA laws but it’s also a troubling indicator of the future of healthcare and political correctness. Dan Roberts (www.ammoland.com) reports on this trend.
Finally, doctors are struggling to cope with an increasingly complex economic and political world of healthcare. The Indiana University Kelley School of Business has inaugurated an MBA program to assist medical doctors in doing that. The school’s director, Dr. Vicki Smith-Daniels. Ph.D., joins us. (www.kelley.iupui.edu)Read More
In the wake of this week’s terrorist bombing at the Boston Marathon, the mainline media lost no time in speculating about the probability of a white, right-wing bomber being responsible. John’s boralogue explains how the hate-speech, terrorist blame game works and expands this to show how the entire hate-speech methodology distorts issues in the public square.
We’ll continue this thought flow with Ben Johnson from Life Site News (www.lifesitenews.com), detailing the media’s failure to cover the abortion murder trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, until it was shamed into doing it by the alternative media. This include a history of the constantly changing landscape of politically-correct thinking regarding abortion.
Gold has been hammered the last two weeks in an expected blow off, so we’ll explain why. Then few seem to notice that, despite Occupy Wall Street yelling and screaming, none of the Wall Street people responsible for the 2007 sub-prime mortgage blowout have been prosecuted, nor have provisions been made to prevent its occurrence again, and conditions for another major financial storm are brewing rapidly. Our guest, Greg Hunter, (www.usawatchdog.com) is passionate about this subject.
Surprise! There’s actually no connection between blood moons and mental health, but it does make for a catchy title and we’ll give coverage of both topics here on the program.
John’s boralogue compares speeches made by Vice President Joseph Biden this week and Britain’s (now-deceased) Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher two decades ago, emphasizing how they are indicative of the new economic order appearing on the global horizon.
Then we’ll change program focus by speculating about the four blood moons scheduled for 2014 and 2015, actually total lunar eclipses, which take place on the Jewish feasts of Passover and Tabernacles. This coincidence won’t occur again for several centuries. Historically major events have happened to the Jewish people clustered around these dates. Just a trend, or a harbinger of things to come? Pastor Mark Biltz is founder of El Shaddai Ministries in Tacoma, Washington. (www.elshaddaiministries.us)
We’ve often told you the U.S. jobs numbers are rigged, but what’s really happening with jobs and can we recover from a long-term downward spiral? Andrew Smith is author of “Sand in the Gears: How Public Policy has Crippled American Manufacturing.”
We’ve also managed to squash a plethora of news stories in between the interviews so hopefully you’ll find today’s program meaningful.
There so much in process worldwide, John devotes an extended boralogue to a summary of the geopolitical events underway.
Then we’ll examine the latest North Korean threat; just more sabre-rattling in a protracted ongoing series of such challenges, or is it indicative of a fundamental change in the North Korean leadership? F. Michael Maloof (www.wndbooks.com) is a former senior security policy analyst in the Office of the Secretary of Defense and author of “A Nation Forsaken.”
How often have you heard secularists claim more wars were fought in the name of religion than for any other reason? An historic urban legend. Atheistic Marxism managed to surpass everything in just one century. A sober examination of religious persecution in the former Soviet Union explains why this is so. Kevin Gonzales (www.martyredintheussr.com) is producer of an upcoming documentary, “Martyred in the USSR, Militant Atheism in the Former Soviet Union.”
Happy Easter weekend everyone. Christ is Risen!
John’s boralogue begins the show with a demonstration of the shift in cultural values from Christianity to secularist norms resulting in a series of failing culture war battles of which the same-sex marriage debate is just one skirmish.
Then we’ll summarize the Supreme Court’s Defense of Marriage hearings with an interview featuring Sherif Girgis, co-author of “What is Marriage? Man and Woman: a Defense.”
Bill Powers of (www.powersenergyinvestor.com) joins the show next to examine the worldwide energy situation. Although energy prices are pushing upwards, the onrushing energy crisis seems to have been slowed for a while.
Recently, scientists announced they had confirmed the existence of the predicted Higgs Boson. So who cares? What does that mean? Steve Elwart (www.wnd.com) returns to to examine this item and why it’s significant in the search for origins of the universe.
Finally, we’ll end with butterflies and why they are such a marvelous example of creation engineering. Paul Nelson is guest.Read More
Tom Read of the American Christian Network (www.acn-network.com) interviews John Loeffler on “It Seems to Me” on the topic of our national debt.
The American Christian Network is the nation’s premier Christian teaching network featuring Bible teaching and Christian focused news and current events. The Amercian Christian Network Broadcasts the word of God to the Pacific Northwest and beyond via our 6 affiliates.

John’s boralogue starts the program with a summary of the Cyprus banking crisis as it affects the euro and the dollar.
Then we flow directly into a discussion with Forbes Magazine contributor Tim Worstall in Portugal about the confidence crisis which the Cyprus banking situation has caused in Europe, including the flagrant breach of contract law. If nothing else, this heavy-handed move has unleashed jitters in Europe and is causing a flight into the dollar, which is ironic in that just a few years ago, we were told the euro was going replace the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.
Then Dexter van Zile from CAMERA (www.camera.org) reveals how young evangelicals’ attitudes towards same-sex marriage and support for Israel are related issues and both are changing to conform with politically correct thinking.
Finally, there seems to be a disturbing trend to convert elected offices in counties around the country to appointed ones. Sheriff Jeff Christopher from Sussex County, Delaware is the final guest on today’s show.
John’s boralogue unites a comparison of the Petrus Romanus papal prophecy, the election of Pope Francis, a history of the Catholic church in Latin America and the basis for long-standing Antisemitism in Europe.
Then we flow directly from that into a discussion with Giulio Meotti at /Il Foglio/ (www.giuliomeotti.com) in Italy about multiple transitions under way in Europe from multiculturalism to Antisemitism.
It’s important follow up global causes championed by the media. Typically the media and governments that promote them look away when their pet causes go sour. After apartheid was abolished in South Africa, the media refused to acknowledge that the country experienced deteriorating social and economic conditions, along with the rise of violence, a reappearance of racism and systematic murders of Boer farmers by roving gangs armed with AK-47s. Arnold Ahlert (www.frontpagemag.com) returns to the program. This interview is instructive for the next cause the media will champion.
John’s boralogue details the spreading series of troubling incidents of violent anti-semitism in Europe.
Then, with a speculation circus surrounding the upcoming papal elections in Rome, traditionally an historic waste of time, one critical issue surrounding this election is the relationship between Israel and the Vatican, as well as between Catholics and Jews in general. Are we in for an improvement or deterioration of same? Dr. Eugene Fischer, Ph.D., is a professor of Catholic-Jewish studies at St. Leo’s College and formerly Associate Director of the U.S. Catholic Bishops’ Secretariat for Ecumenical and Inter-religious Affairs.
Recently the Canadian Supreme Court handed down an important ruling, which will have long-ranging effect on the tension between hate speech laws and free speech in that country. André Schutten is an attorney with the Association for Reformed Political Action (www.humanrightscommissions.ca) in Canada.Read More
