Economics is one leg of the geopolitical stool. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at financial indicators and raises a red flag watch on our economy. David McAlvany and Kevin Orrick from McAlvany Weekly Commentary discuss how we are overdue for a recession, and though the economy continues to hum along, indicators are pointing to a likely recession in 2020. How will it affect the election? We’ll have to wait and see.

Myron MagnetIn our continuing series on the Constitution and the founding freedoms of America, we welcome to the program Myron Magnet (www.city-journal.org), Editor-at-Large at City Journal, who examines Clarence Thomas’ efforts in establishing reform in the U.S. judiciary, and looks at the battle between originalists and those who believe in a living, breathing document in interpreting the Constitution. Read Myron Magnet’s Imprimis article ‘Clarence Thomas and the Lost Constitution‘ at Hillsdale College.

Ken TimmermanIt’s time for a Middle East Update and who better to give it than Ken Timmerman (www.iran.org), President of Foundation for Democracy in Iran? He discusses the geopolitical link between Syria, Iran, and Israel as well as tense NATO allies Turkey and the U.S. Is the stage being set for an end times battle against Israel?

John and Producer Steve round out the show covering the Deep State and the latest impeachment effort. Reform is needed and government should be pared down. The President has control of foreign policy, but those in Congress and the Deep State who disagree with that policy are attempting to oust the President via impeachment.

John’s quote of the week:
Economically, are we healthy or are we not? Yes, the economy is buzzing along, but if you look at the underlying fundamentals, there are serious structural problems with the global financial system. It, like our government, is going to have to be reformed at some point.

KYMSIn this week’s Extras segment, we play John’s most recent appearance on KYMS, a local north Idaho radio station, and his monthly martyred church update. He and host Lee Lancaster discuss other topics, including freedom of speech, who gets to determine what hate speech is, and the tendency to compromise parts of the Constitution. They also look at important tidbits such as where on the globe Burkina Faso is located!

Reform and Rebuild

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast

In this week’s boralogue, John tackles two very important topics. First up, there is a battle of worldviews happening in Western civilization because society has drifted away from its founding ideals. Reform, then, must occur, but the fight against entrenched swamp critters will be long and it will be tough. Second topic: this weekend marks the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, and John relates stories of several persecuted Christians to pray for.

John O'ConnorWhat is the difference between impeachment inquiries in the Watergate era and those occurring now? John O’Connor (www.joclaw.com), Attorney and Owner of O’Connor and Associates, joins us to discuss the contrast between 1973 and 2019 regarding impeachment and how the current media are purposefully lying to further a narrative. He also covers how intelligence agencies and Hillary Clinton’s campaign spied on candidate Trump in 2016.

Steven GrantThere’s a knock at the Church’s door and it’s socialism that is busting in. Steven Grant (www.godsdestiny.com), Senior Pastor of Destiny Christian Center in Colorado, examines the invading secular worldview that is slowly but definitely usurping the Gospel in the Church, and asserts that church leaders need to be prepared to stand in the faith before it’s too late.

Bonner CohenA western Canadian professor was recently fired for going against the climate change narrative and claiming – through documented research – that polar bears are thriving. Dr. Bonner Cohen (www.cfact.org), Senior Policy Analyst with the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), joins us to show how climate alarmists are stifling the speech of those who don’t tow the green line.

John’s quote of the week:
In reform, we have two problems: getting back to our foundations, and fighting off those swamp critters that not only don’t want to see us go back to our foundations, but also want to see the whole thing destroyed. We have to keep bearing witness to the truth because truth is our ally in this entire worldview battle.

In this week’s Extras segment, Producer Steve takes over and plays an excerpt from an early October episode of his podcast, War on Stupid. Steve enumerates an exhaustive and entertaining laundry list of controversies against President Trump from Inauguration Day to the Ukraine phone call. Steve covers why this keeps happening and why, after all the so-called wrongdoings, impeachment is happening now.

Impeaching the Firewall

Caveat emptor: before you fall for a promise, make sure you’re not being deceived. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the continued onslaught against the Constitution by those who try to convince us we need a better document, a better country. They want to fundamentally transform America, but transform it into what? The Constitution limits government, so in order for big government to grow, our founding documents must be swept away. Beware of promises to do that; the result will not be a better country.

Jenna Ellis RivesHow are the promises of the Constitution being swept away? Constitutional Law Attorney and conservative speaker Jenna Ellis Rives (www.twitter.com/JennaEllisRives) joined us after her speech a week ago to examine attempts by leftists to pack the courts with activist judges and constantly obstruct the Trump administration as well as the unorthodox and possibility illegitimate process of impeachment currently underway in the House.

David RubinAntisemitism is on the rise in Europe and it’s coming from several sources. David Rubin (www.ShilohIsraelChildren.org), Founder and President of Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund, discusses how Jews are being attacked in Germany and France in part by far right fringe groups but also by a growing number of Muslims there.

Steven MalangaWhy, when progressive policies are implemented in a city, do they rarely make things better? Steven Malanga (www.city-journal.org), Senior Editor at City Journal in New York City joins us to look at why these policies fail as well as an emerging shift toward conservatism in places that have become overwhelmingly intolerable.

John’s quote of the week:
If it says you have rights but later on politicians or courts simply define those rights away to the point where if you try to exercise your rights, it’s not going to stand up – then does the Constitution mean anything? Does it protect anything? The answer is a resounding ‘no.’

Total Truth - Nancy PearceyIn this week’s Extras segment, we travel back 15 years and play an interview with Nancy Pearcey from a September 2004 episode, titled ‘Spitting in the Face of Christ’ where she and John discuss the need for churches to teach core Christian values in the current worldview battle.

What Shouldn’t Be, Seems To Be

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast

Bad is good, good is bad, dark is light, light is dark, bitter is sweet, and sweet is bitter. In this week’s extended boralogue, John highlights speeches from Attorney General Bill Barr, City Journal Editor Myron Magnet, and Queen Elizabeth II of England. From these speeches, we learn that the world is being turned upside down in pursuit of a narrative. Listen to AG Barr’s full speech: 

Morals and ethics are now considered to be radical positions. Precepts in the Constitution are ignored in favor of liberal definitions. If an outcome of an election doesn’t go their way, progressive elites will obstruct, even though had the election gone the other way, they would have spoken out against obstruction. There is no consistency when you don’t have a solid foundation to stand on.

Stand up for the TruthTruth is at times being doubted in the church and that is leading to a corruption of the faith. We welcome back Mike LeMay (www.standupforthetruth.com), General Manager of Q90FM Radio in Wisconsin to examine how an upside down society is adversely affecting the church. He also recognizes that Christian persecution is coming, but we need to fight it every step of the way.

Dr. Michael RectenwaldWhy would wealthy corporations who have benefited under capitalism advocate for socialism? Author and speaker Michael Rectenwald (www.michaelrectenwald.com) is back with us to answer that question and discuss his new book, The Google Archipelago. He goes on to explain why he stepped away from the liberal mindset after his colleagues turned on him.

John’s quote of the week:
The social justice that’s now being pushed into the Bible churches is simply a repackaging of Marxist ideas covered over with something that looks evangelical. A lot of the material sounds good and church leaders fall for it. They fall for it because they don’t understand the worldview changes that are underway.

Jenna Ellis RivesIn this week’s Extras segment, we give John a break and play a speech (that he attended) given in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho this week by Constitutional Law Attorney, Trump 2020 Legal Analyst and Conservative Commentator on Fox News, Jenna Ellis Rives (www.twitter.com/JennaEllisRives). She covers a variety of topics including Constitutional originality and impeachment.
