The Notre Dame Cathedral has been witness to many significant historical events over the centuries but it suffered a devastating fire last Monday. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the symbolism of the fire and ties it to Easter Sunday and the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Though it may have been destroyed, it will rise again.

Referenda and initiatives, like Brexit in England and bills in the U.S. limiting government power, are voted on by the people. But does it ultimately matter? Robert Natelson (www.i2i.org), Senior Fellow in Constitutional Jurisprudence at the Independent Institute shows how the powers that be, including the courts, will go against the will of the people if it doesn’t fit with their narrative.

Google, Apple, and Microsoft are teaming up with foreign powers to spy on the public. Rex Lee (www.mysmartprivacy.com), Senior Analyst and Strategy Advisor at BLACKOPS Partners is back with us to discuss how backdoor surveillance technology embedded in our electronic devices is being used by countries like China and Russia to keep tabs on its citizens. Efforts, though, are underway to curtail some of the abuses.

John and Producer Steve finish up the program this week commenting on two humorous clips of democratic lawmakers who are chairs of their committees – Maxine Waters and Jerry Nadler – who had embarrassing moments last week interacting with witnesses and their testimony.

John’s quote of the week:
Just as on Easter Sunday, we have hope. We are crushed and brought down and ultimately killed in our bodies oftentimes for Christ. We still have hope because we shall yet live with him. He who believes in me, even though he die, yet shall he live.

In this week’s Extras segment, we crank up the way back machine to September 2014 for an interview with Melik Kaylan, author of the book, The Russia-China Axis, where he examines the geopolitics between these two countries at that time. When we wash away all the ridiculous Russia collusion nonsense – which hadn’t reared its ugly head in 2014 – we can see that many of the international tensions then are still relevant today.

It looks like Cloward and Piven are bringing their strategy to our southern border. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the reality on the border and how media and politicians are not accurately reporting on it. The media in blue bubble land is working overtime to distract us from not only the border but also the Mueller report, spying on the Trump campaign, and FISA court controversies. Don’t let the powers that be steer the conversation because chances are it will be filled with inaccuracies and hypocrisy.

The media and leftists are still smarting from their 2016 election loss. Will they learn from what happened? Victor Davis Hanson (www.victorhanson.com), Author and Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins us to discuss the factors that led to President Trump’s election win, the pros and cons of his presidency thus far, and how liberals’ actions and viewpoints today will most likely backfire come 2020.

Recent power outages in Venezuela have been blamed on either a poorly mismanaged grid system or an attempted cyber coup by the United States. Michael Daugherty (www.TheDevilInsideTheBeltway.com), Author and CEO of LabMD, gives us his view on why the power is out in Venezuela and examines grid vulnerabilities here in the U.S. and the need to improve our cyber security.

John rounds out the show this week covering various important issues including free speech on college campuses, socialist promises from presidential candidates, and America’s economic future with large amounts of unfunded liabilities. We need leaders who will tell us the truth and lead us through the tough times ahead.

John’s quote of the week:
When you’re in a paradigm shift, it goes through several different stages. The first one, people think it’s a bump in the road. The second one, it dawns on people that it isn’t a bump but they try to evaluate things in the light of everything that came before. In stage three, there’s a reconciliation in people’s minds that it has changed and the rules are new rules.

In this week’s Extras segment, we crank up the way back machine to August 2014 and a roundtable discussion with Drs. Jay Grimstead and Eugene Clingman on the authority and power of the Bible and Christianity and how that influences the West. It goes to the heart of truth, something just as relevant today as it was five years ago.

Certain groups and people have been lambasted in the media and by politicians, but now the tables have turned. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the law of political karma and how what comes around for some goes around for others. Hypocrisy abounds when the playing field isn’t level, but now those who railed against Brett Kavanaugh are singing a different tune when it comes to Joe Biden.

Is it possible that liberals once had good intentions? Author and retired businessman William Gairdner (www.williamgairdner.ca) is back with us, giving a history of liberalism from its foundation in liberty to its modern push toward forced equality and socialism. As a result, people get divided and societies devolve.

No conspiracy in U.S. history has captivated the masses like the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Author and former construction entrepreneur Christopher Fulton (www.cmfulton.com) describes how he obtained clear cut evidence from the assassination and how the Deep State, both then and now, has worked hard to bury the information.

John finishes up the program this week looking at a variety stories including the House subpoena of the Mueller report, Joe Biden’s issues, the Brexit deadline, Israel and the Golan Heights, and Iran’s nuclear program.

John’s quote of the week:
Why is it OK to throw people out of restaurants but it’s OK to force a bakery to provide service? It’s hypocritical. It’s not a level playing field. As long as one side in this political fight gives an example to the other side, it can no longer use that as a defense when the other side uses it.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview John gave late last week on Inland Northwest radio station KYMS where he gave a persecution update, including a story where God miraculously intervened to save the lives of children who were surely going to die. He also covers the ills of totalitarianism, positive rights, the battle for free speech, and the constant push for utopia.

Moving the Goalposts

The country and especially the media have been in quite the frenzy this past week. In this week’s boralogue, John goes back to the predictions he made about the media after the 2016 election and shows how we are reliving those moments now. There is a shock post-Mueller report but John predicts that the media will continue to behave as it has moving forward.

Far-left liberals are pushing many issues that go against America’s founding documents. Constitutional law attorney Jenna Ellis (www.washingtonexaminer.com) joins us to discuss the merits of the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact as well as packing the Supreme Court. Liberals keep moving the goalposts, slowly building popularity among their narratives.

One-worlders are at it again, this time using climate to further their cause. Alex Newman (www.thenewamerican.com), Foreign Correspondent for The New American, examines the UN’s push for global governance as well as push-back from many scientists, along with President Trump, who are taking on the climate alarmists.

A few states are foreclosing on property owners who owe back taxes and keeping the proceeds from the sale. Christina Martin (www.pacificlegal.org), Attorney at Pacific Legal Foundation describes how one of her clients lost his home to this practice and compares it to the problems with civil asset forfeiture.

John finishes up this week reading a century-old poem by Rudyard Kipling that mentions empty promises, like those of modern day socialists, will never pan out because at some point, reality becomes real and the fantasy is just that: a fantasy.

John’s quote of the week:
What we have been told repeatedly is the need for the radical transformation of America. ‘What does that mean?’ is the first thing you have to ask. You have to learn how to read what they’re telling you – then you’ll know where you’re going. And with radical transformation, it’s a socialist, idealized government where we have equality of outcome, not equality of opportunity.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview John gave this week on Stand Up For The Truth on Q90FM Radio from Wisconsin where he discusses, among other things, the Marxist tactics of the Left as well as various aspects concerning the Christian Church.
