We are now a week removed from President Trump’s official declaration of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the expected reactions to this declaration and details the rich history of Jerusalem. Has anything changed as a result of President Trump’s declaration? Jerusalem is still the capital of Israel. And everyone surrounding it is acting as they always have.

Artificial Intelligence may not be at science fiction level yet, but it is being used in some areas, including surveillance. National education analyst and writer Dr. Carole Haynes (www.drcarolehhaynes.com) returns to discuss concerns with massive tracking systems and their algorithms as well as Congress’s back door policies in surveillance legislation.

What rights will we have when AI begins making decisions for us? Curtis Levey (www.committeeforjustice.org), President of the Committee for Justice, looks at the future of artificial intelligence and the battle between government and free markets over its control.

Why do many public schools have low graduation rates and student test scores? Are they doing anything about it? Larry Sand (www.ctenhome.org), President of the California Teachers Empowerment Network, details how education elites in California are lowering standards to boost statistics rather than look for solutions. Will school choice help?

John rounds out the program this week showing how Francis Schaeffer’s predictions from 1977 about the rise of totalitarianism are coming true today.

John’s quote of the week:
The totalitarian instinct – seen clearly on college campuses and in much of the left-wing controlled media today – will try to shut down ideas that they don’t like and impose social penalties or real penalties on those who don’t keep up their ‘citizen scores’ (how the Chinese Communists would call it). That’s why we’re in true danger if we allow these trends to continue and why the battle for freedom of speech is paramount.”

In our Section 6 intelligence brief, we’ll discuss the bigger picture of all these recent sexual allegations post-Moore, as well as incidents of discrimination against Asians applying to college, fiber optic cables and threats to communication, the merging of progressive thought into a new paradigm, and finally, the geopolitics and economics of the Middle East.

Making Sense of the Nonsense

On what do we base our foundation of morality? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the gradual removal of God from society and the ages-long attempts to replace Him with logic, reason, and other false gods – to no avail. Claiming someone or something is bad without a moral grounding in God is just that, a claim.
Plus, we look at President Trump’s Jerusalem declaration in our Clip of the Week.

With sexual accusations raining down on Hollywood and Washington DC, how do we make sense of it all? Catalina Avalos (www.trippscott.com), Criminal Defense Attorney & Director at Tripp Scott Law, examines the legal implications for accusers and the accused and shows the keys to preventing this kind of trouble in the future.

Hypothetically, what if the accusations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore were part of a larger plot? Tom Ertl (www.ertlhomes.com), Former National Media Director for Christians for Donald Trump in last year’s campaign, discusses the deeper battle between the swamp establishment and grass roots conservatives and how ideas are far more important than ideologies.

After last November’s election, media pundits began questioning how regular people could vote for Donald Trump. The problem is, they discussed it amongst themselves and ignored regular people. Ken Stern (www.palisadesmv.com), Former CEO of National Public Radio, describes his year-long journey outside of the bubble to learn from those of us in flyover land and to determine if America is as divided as it seems.

John’s quote of the week:
Early in the 20th century, we allowed the State to become involved in the marriage business, removing some of the authority from where it traditionally lay in churches and synagogues. Later on we just pitched God out of the picture all together. At that point, marriage became whatever the State said it was.

In this week’s extended Section 6 intelligence brief, John delves into the complex 3D chessboard of the Middle East. Then, we play various media clips after Trump’s Jerusalem capital declaration. Finally, we’ll air John’s most recent appearance on ‘Stand Up For The Truth’ from 11/29/17. Stay tuned!

The news is aflutter lately about all sorts of scandals and bad behavior. Should we care? In this week’s boralogue John looks at the battle between stupid news and news that matters, playing a clip of Don Coxe, who illustrates the need for more focus on important, sobering topics. It’s difficult to solve serious problems when no one is looking at them.

How ready are we should a foreign power come up against us? Bill Gertz (www.gertzfile.com), Senior Editor at the Washington Free Beacon, discusses other countries’ willingness to beef up their warfare capabilities, while the U.S. government remains focused on other issues and is not keeping pace.

A national database with all of one’s information is popular in China and other countries. Could it emerge in the U.S.? National education analyst and writer Dr. Carole Haynes (www.drcarolehhaynes.com) joins us to discuss Congressional bills that would establish these databases and the ignorance of lawmakers to see what’s really going on.

On October 31, a terrorist mowed down pedestrians in New York City. He was in this country under the Diversity Visa Program. Michael Cutler (www.michaelcutler.net), Retired Special Agent with the former Immigration and Naturalization Services, looks at the flaws of the program and what needs to be done to solve the problem.

John’s quote of the week:
“The country is now divided: two different groups of people with two different worldviews using two different processes of thought based on two different worldview assumptions arriving at two different sets of conclusions – all yelling and screaming and bickering over control. Meanwhile, big storms are brewing around us.”

In our Section 6 intelligence brief: Tax Bill Analysis (Rates, Exemptions, and Deductions). Problems in high tax states and the impending migration away from those states. Status Update in the Middle East: (Sunni-Israel alliance against Iran, Hezbollah-Syria moves to set up bases, control of the Sinai). Non-integration by immigrants in Europe. How to spot what’s really going on behind the scenes with globalism. We round out the show with an update on the Trinity Western case.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We are skipping the boralogue this week and jumping right into things with our first guest, KrisAnne Hall (www.krisannehall.com), President of Liberty First University, who explains the difference between a right and a benefit. The two seem to be flipping in our society today.

Why did so many evangelicals vote for Donald Trump and has that had an impact outside of politics? Stephen Mansfield (www.choosingdonaldtrump.com), author and head of the Mansfield Group discusses the factors leading up to Donald Trump’s election and the subsequent repercussions inside the evangelical church.

Are we finally seeing a backlash against a relentless progressive ideology or is it a momentary lull? Bruce Thornton (www.fresnostate.edu), Classics and Humanities Professor at Cal State Fresno, examines declining sales in the NFL and Hollywood and also looks at the fallacies of socialism and why millennials are buying into it.

John’s quote of the week:
The mainstream media in the last election threw off any pretense and just came out unabashedly for their candidate. They left any professionalism in the dust and I don’t know if they’re every going to recover from that.

During Section 6 this week, we air John’s most recent appearance on “It Seems to Me” with Tom Read. They discuss media hypocrisy, civil asset forfeiture, and dirty political strategies.

Red Warning Lights

Can we honestly say that we are thankful this holiday season? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the saving grace by faith provided by our Savior and it is through that faith that we have our greatest freedom. We have constitutional freedoms in this country as well and we risk losing them when we don’t thank the God who allowed us to live under them. So love God, love one another, and treat everyone with respect. We can all be thankful for that.

Plus, don’t miss John’s annual cranberry recipe. Make sure to have your ID handy when purchasing ingredients!

How does the Middle East chess board, with its complex interacting pieces, look today? Kevin Freeman (www.globaleconomicwarfare.com), Founder and CEO of Freeman Global, points out that economic and geopolitical warning lights are going off in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia, Israel, Iran, and of course the United States.

Why is the 1917 Balfour Declaration suddenly controversial today? Author and retired attorney Rick Richman (www.jpundit.typepad.com) answers that question and explains why a two-state solution always fails, even when a vast majority of demands are met.

What happens when a campus religious group espouses the same beliefs as their religious institution, but is still called a hate group? Ashley McGuire (www.thecatholicassociation.org), Senior Fellow with The Catholic Association, examines political correctness on campus and the denial of first amendment freedoms.

John’s quote of the week:
I’ve been wondering if all of these people screaming about rights and oppression really recognize how well off they are compared with the rest of the world. You want to see oppression? Come with me to certain countries in the world and I’ll show you oppression. And if you live to escape from it, you can tell other people about it.”

This week in Section 6: John discusses the politics behind the recent Roy Moore accusations, how the Clintons have outlasted their usefulness, the Pope’s views on climate change — the Paris Accord, and facts. We’ll also talk about the spiritual dynamic behind much of our current events, and finally, the real tax plan being proposed.

The Illogic Chronicles

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast


170045 11/11/2017

The illogic chronicles have been in full swing this past year as hypocrisy abounds and common sense is ignored. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at California, fake news, and Vatican bishops who are in favor of global warming and gun control. When logic is tossed aside, chaos ensues but reality will eventually win out. It’s up to us to be prepared and stay true. Plus John analyzes Tom Steyer’s call for impeachment in our clip of the week.

Are social media sites consistent in their enforcement of “community standards?” Ben Weingarten (www.benweingarten.com), Founder and CEO of ChangeUp Media, shows how YouTube and Google are circumventing the First Amendment via hate speech laws. Their targets: why only conservatives, of course!

Does the UN protect the sovereign equality of all its Members, as its charter states? Attorney and author Joseph Klein (www.frontpagemag.com) discusses how one country – Israel – isn’t quite as equal in the UN’s eyes as other member states. The Organization has endorsed and sometimes funded anti-Israel activities.

John and producer Steve dive into the illogical statements and hypocritical ideas of college professors and media pundits as part of our illogic chronicles series.

Finally, we take a look at why there is no peace in the Middle East. Philip Carl Salzman (www.mcgill.ca), Anthropology Professor at McGill University in Montreal joins us and explains where true loyalty lies in the Middle East and how peaceful the region would be if Israel didn’t exist.

John’s quote of the week:
The First Amendment – freedom of speech and religion – is guaranteed. It is joined at the hip with the Second Amendment. If you can destroy the Second Amendment, it’s not going to be far behind before the First goes as well.

In this week’s Section 6: Tax reform that’s really not reform, the Roy Moore sex scandal, calling everything racist – including the national anthem, and advice for winter conditions. We close with a persecution update.
