It may seem as if the world has gone crazy as we witness behaviors that leave us scratching our heads. In this week’s extended boralogue, John makes sense of all the outrage, virtue signaling, cognitive dissonance, and logical inconsistencies we see on almost a daily basis. At one time, we thought that if we would just kowtow to the mob, they would go away. The problem was – they didn’t. But people are fighting back, especially now that they know why it’s happening.

We begin our look at how language affects culture with Trevor Loudon (www.trevorloudon.com), Editor-in-Chief of the New Zeal blog, who discusses how the Democratic Socialists of America are attempting to change America’s core values by infiltrating churches. Ideas like critical race theory, a socialist Jesus, and full-on Marxism have started showing up in the sanctuary.

Next we chat with Salih Hudayar (www.nationalawakening.org), Ambassador to the U.S. for the East Turkistan Government in Exile. He looks at real concentration camps in China (not at our southern border) as well as organ harvesting, persecution of religious minorities, and the status of Turkistan in China.

We wrap up our look at language and culture this week by diving into the current red flag law debate. Brian Joondeph (www.retinacolorado.com), Surgeon at Colorado Retina Associates, is back with us to examine the constitutionality of red flag laws and the inevitable absence of due process that it brings.

John’s quote of the week:
When you’re dealing with a social justice warrior in your job or any other area, remember their one goal is that you will comply or you will be destroyed…in the name of tolerance, inclusion, and diversity of course.

In this week’s Extras segment, we fire up the old way back machine all the way to November 2003 and play an interview with Harvey Klehr about Communist spies during the Cold War and how historians are attempting to rewrite the textbooks regarding this era.

Currencies: Endgame

Much news happening around the world so we will skip the boralogue and jump right in with our first guest, author and journalist James Gorrie (www.theepochtimes.com). He and John discuss the economic realities in China, including the effect of U.S. tariffs and the likelihood that China will collapse just as the Soviet Union did.

We should also look at our economy, especially in light of recent recession warning signs. Jason Pye (www.freedomworks.org), Vice President for Legislative Affairs at FreedomWorks, analyzes our out of control spending and national debt, as well as the endgame of our currency. If we don’t have a serious conversation and take steps to regain economic control, we may not recover from the next crash.

After John covers healthcare and climate change issues, we welcome to the program Brian Wang (www.nextbigfuture.com), Chief Blogger at Next Big Future, who examines upper atmosphere high resolution surveillance, its constant tracking of every person, and the possible future implications of that technology.

John’s quote of the week:
Currencies which are not backed by anything tend to have a 200 to 250 year life cycle because governments and central banks cannot resist inflating them. Once the politicos run out of available taxation, they invisibly begin picking our pockets by inflating the currency. And of course that just destroys it.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play a Steel interview from October 2011 with Dr. Darryl Hart of Hillsdale College about how the marriage between evangelicalism and conservatism may be coming to an end. Since we’ve covered economics quite a bit this week, a flashback on politics and religion will nicely round out the program. Plus we play a snippet from Producer Steve’s podcast War on Stupid, where he discusses the pros and cons of supporting President Trump as a Christian.

The outrage industry has kicked it up several notches this week while balance in reporting is barely found. In this week’s boralogue, John rejects the outrage industry and focuses on what’s really important: the health of our country. America has, unfortunately, lost its way. But we have a choice: either reform and get back to the moral roots that we were founded on, or degenerate further into chaos. We should choose to learn from what has worked.

Can we link the Bible to the freedoms we enjoy in the West? Vishal Mangalwadi (www.revelationmovement.com), Founder and President of Revelation Movement, contrasts the Bible-inspired liberty and freedom of Western civilization with the illogical philosophy behind postmodernism. He also offers insights into the problems of Marxist education and intolerance of free speech.

Definitions and context of words have been changed in an effort to tear down Western civilization. Author and journalist Jack Engelhard (www.jackengelhard.com) joins us to discuss how the meaning of the phrase ‘white supremacy’ and the word ‘racist’ have been manipulated in order to link them to western culture in an attempt to tear it down.

John’s quote of the week:
The people who benefit from the freedoms to speak, to think, and to even criticize Western civilization, are busy tearing apart the very thing which gave them the benefits that they like. Is that not crazy? It’s almost like a philosophical autoimmune disease.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play John’s latest appearance on local North Idaho radio station KYMS. John and the host discuss an array of topics including free speech, the ills of socialism, and a martyred church update.

Predictives

The past can be accurately predictive of the future. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at predictions and how, if you study the historical trends with politics and the economy, it’s easy to see where we’re headed. He highlights the leftward momentum toward a utopian society and the pushback that has resulted from it. When the storms arrive, we should be prepared and stand on rock, not on shifting sand.

Can we have human rights without natural law? Dan Philpott (www.arcoftheuniverse.info), Political Science Professor at the University of Notre Dame, joins us to discuss the nature of right and wrong and expectations surrounding Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s new Commission on Unalienable Rights.

When you sort through all the noise in the news today, certain data points about our future become clear. We welcome back futurist and author James Kunstler (www.kunstler.com) to the program to look at what’s in store for the Republicans and the Democrats, as well as what we can expect in the economy and free speech arenas.

To illustrate how effective predictions can be, John plays part of a speech from Robert Welch from 1968 showing exactly how progressive socialists have operated in the last half century. He also plays a speech from the late Dr. Michael Coffman, a former guest on Steel, highlighting the competing worldviews of John Locke and Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

John’s quote of the week:
The purpose of rights as they were written in our Constitution is to act as a firewall, not to enable government but to block government from infringing on the rights of the people. People would then have the maximum opportunity to be free, to engage in free enterprise, and to be left alone.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play John’s latest appearance on Stand Up For the Truth on Q90FM out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. John and the hosts discuss the concept of hate, especially on the internet, reaching out to millennials, and how we got to this point of dysfunctional discussions, both online and in person.

Listen to the Stand Up For The Truth one-hour, live daily podcast hereGoogle Play, or in iTunes.
