Listening to the talking heads about tax transfer schemes, tax reform, tax evasion, and taxing the wealthy, is enough to cause anyone to worry. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the truth behind taxes and how they really work. When you tax something, you get less of it. Plus John dissects Al Gore’s comments from a CNN town hall meeting in our clip of the week.

President Trump gave a speech in Poland last month praising the West and all of its accomplishments. There were some, despite enjoying the benefits of Western culture, who disagreed with him. Bruce Thornton (www.fresnostate.edu), Humanities Professor at California State Fresno examines the disdain in academia and among the elites for Western culture, and digs into history to show how society based on freedom is both rare and best.

A bubble is looming in the financial markets. Can we spot the patterns that lead up to it or will it catch us by surprise yet again? George Gilder (www.discovery.org), Senior Fellow with the Discovery Institute, discusses monetary policy, how currency and markets affect everything else in society, and what to watch for in the future.

John’s quote of the week:
“The very same people that are telling you that you’re a very bad society have to doublespeak it because those people who are coming here know it’s much better here. And the people who are telling us how bad it is here, they don’t seem to want to leave either.”

This week on our Section 6 Intelligence Brief: The North Korea threat, RFID microchip identifiers, Santa Muerte in Mexico, threats to religious freedom, and a persecution update.

Charlie Gard, the British newborn boy with a rare brain disease passed away this week, but his death may not be in vain. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at socialized medicine, death panels, and bureaucracies, and points out that the patient is always the last to be considered. Free health care isn’t free and little Charlie’s death has reminded us of that.

Also John dissects Fareed Zakaria’s comments about Trump voters in our brand new clip of the week.

Climate data from NASA and the IPCC have not been collected properly, which has led to many untrue predictions. Environmentalist and author Tim Ball (www.drtimball.com) shares his experience fighting against climate inaccuracies, demanding that evidence be produced to back up alarmists’ claims.

Property rights are important in a free society. Christina Martin (www.pacificlegal.org), Attorney at Pacific Legal Foundation, discusses one of her cases involving a church in Michigan that lost their property to the state and how taking away property rights brings us one step closer to losing our free country.

Did Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook just agree to adhere to Pakistan’s blasphemy laws online? Author and lecturer Meira Svirsky (www.clarionproject.org) joins us to examine political correctness on the internet, hierarchies among victim classes, and the need to strongly enforce free speech laws here and around the world.

John’s quote of the week:
“Normally socialized healthcare flows this way: the government gets first say, the healthcare insurers and payers get second say, then the healthcare providers whose jobs depend on the government payer system get third say, and that’s pretty much it. Oh, did we forget? I’m sorry! You’re the patient, aren’t you? Well, you’re down at the bottom of the totem pole.”

This week on our Section 6 Intelligence Brief, John discusses the upcoming solar eclipse, the fascinating historical significance of the Jewish observance of Tisha B’Av, currency & inflation, and the growing problem of socialized medicine.

How did the terms ‘Palestinian people’ and ‘Israeli occupation’ originate? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the history of Israel, Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza along with the people groups that have occupied those areas. It wasn’t until Israel gained control of the area as a nation that the plight of the Palestinians and occupied territories became controversial issues.

The mental health of children is being tracked in schools and many parents aren’t even aware. Alex Newman (www.thenewamerican.com), Correspondent with The New American, analyzes how school systems are defining mental health, how children are being indoctrinated, and the effect religion plays in education.

Science textbooks are being stripped of anything that contradicts evolution. Jonathan Wells (www.discovery.org), Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute, discusses how God has been methodically removed from classrooms and textbooks over the past few decades and how efforts to turn it around are slow to materialize.

Finally, if we are going to talk about Islam and sharia law, we should know exactly what they are. Bill Warner (www.politicalislam.com), Director of the Center for the Study of Political Islam shares his knowledge of Islam and its system of laws and shows that despite the efforts of politically correct elites to sanitize sharia, the freedoms we share in this country would erode under Islamic law.

John’s quote of the week:
“When we talk about mental health (in schools) today, we’re not just talking about whether they have serious disorders or other things which need addressing, but quite frequently whether or not they are believing politically correct attitudes. (Those with) politically incorrect attitudes are perceived as being mentally ill.”

This week in our Section 6 intelligence Brief: the hypocrisy of Leftist views, the possibilities of a California secession, the problem of government overreach, and the looming Net Neutrality battle.

Jihad Appropriation

170029 07/22/2017

Much like Yellowstone of late, America’s economic arena is experiencing a swarm of quakes that serve as a warning to us all. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at what these quakes mean and where we are heading. Between the fake news camped out in Russia collusion land and the Fed stating that all is well, you would think our economy’s future is just fine. Tough times are ahead, but God will guide each of us through it.

In late June, a van plowed into a group of Muslims outside of a London mosque, stirring up terms like ‘payback’ and ‘white jihad.’ Dr. Dawn Perlmutter (www.symbolintelligence.com), Director of Symbol Intelligence Group, examines the roots of white jihad and the growing resentment that fuels it. White jihad is a problem, but it hasn’t yet risen to the horrific levels of its Islamic counterpart.

The former administration’s EPA redefined the word ‘navigable’ in the Waters of the U.S. Act, thereby expanding its jurisdiction. Dr. Bonner Cohen (www.nationalcenter.org), Senior Fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research, discusses the immense bureaucratic power of the EPA and the abuses stemming from it, and praises President Trump for rolling back some of that power.

You cannot defend the truth if you do not know the truth. Mike LeMay (www.standupforthetruth.com), General Manager of Q90 FM Radio in Wisconsin, shows the steady decline of Christian thought in the West and the erosion of moral standards taught in schools and at church.

Finally, we look at Christian persecution around the world with Paula Kweskin (www.faithkeepersmovie.com), Producer of Clarion Project’s film Faithkeepers. She points out that media is largely silent on Christian persecution but there are ways you and I can help.

John’s quote of the week:
We are at the endgame of all excessive taxation and inflation because they promise so many goodies to so many people that they can’t stop paying it. Once you’re on this deep debt train, you can’t get off until the train goes violently off the rails. This is the point where governments become rapacious and start taxing and seizing anything they possibly can just to keep the game going.”

This week on Section 6, John covers inflation in the U.S. economy, ever failing climate predictions, Catholics vs Evangelicals, and the hierarchy of multicultural classes.

Security Weekend

170028 07/15/2017

President Trump lauded the benefits and wonders of western civilization in his speech in Poland last week. As predicted, the media and the left protested and lost their minds. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at why President Trump’s speech was not advocating white supremacy, as some on the left suggest, and why the West is a wonderful culture. Millions around the world fight to immigrate to the West. It is not because it’s a horrible civilization.

The Drug Enforcement Agency’s mission is to enforce drug laws and bring to justice criminals and organizations who endanger our country through illegal drug trafficking. Retired DEA Special Agent Jeffrey Higgins (www.jeffreyjameshiggins.com) joins us on security weekend to discuss the nexus between drug trafficking and terrorism and examine the pros and cons of legalizing certain drugs.

At the forefront of securing our nation is Immigration and Customs Enforcement, formerly the INS, whose mission is to govern our borders and enforce federal customs and immigration laws. Michael Cutler (www.michaelcutler.net), Retired Special Agent with INS analyzes America’s immigration problems and the criminals who circumvent the system, enter our country, and ultimately terrorize our citizens.

John’s quote of the week:
“The very same people who are preaching to us that all cultures are equal want all of these immigrants from Africa and the Middle East and Latin America to invade western countries. The question is: why do those people want to come here? Because they know the culture they’re fleeing from is not equal to western civilization. It is better in the western countries.”

This week on Section 6 we’ll talk about civil asset forfeiture and IRS abuse, scripture and science, the importance of worldviews, and a historical outlook of Christianity and western civilization.

Unbelievably Bad Idea (UBI)

170027 07/08/2017

A nation divided against itself cannot stand. Are we close to stumbling in America? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at how we got to such a divided state by showing the gradual takeover of the West by progressive thought. Some will not pander to the politically correct elite and are beginning to fight back. Those who have drunk the Kool-Aid are astounded not everyone thinks as they do and are fighting as well. Who will win: PC or freedom?

What is an interfaith dialogue and is it beneficial? Sam Westrop (www.standforpeace.org.uk), Director of Stand for Peace, examines recent attempts at interfaith dialogues between Christians and Muslims and how political Islamism has stepped in to represent all of Islam in order to advance PC narratives.

Ideas for wealth redistribution come in many shapes and sizes, the latest from Facebook head Mark Zuckerberg in the form of a universal basic income (UBI). Mark Hendrickson (www.visionandvalues.org), Professor of Economics at Grove City College, analyzes the pros and cons of UBI, its direct link to socialism, and the overall state of affairs in American economics.

Are we living in the End Times? Carl Gallups (www.carlgallups.com), Senior Pastor at Hickory Hammock Baptist Church in Florida, discusses prophecies that may be coming true and points out that for the first time in our history technology has progressed to the point that most of these global prophecies can now be possible.

John’s quote of the week:
“Once a nation adheres to hate speech laws, the list of what constitutes hate speech becomes longer and longer and longer and finally winds up being anybody who is opposed to government policy.”

This week during our Section 6 Intelligence Brief, John addresses the current media & Hollywood meltdown, Western Europe in identity crisis and losing its Culture, as well as collisions of worldviews.
