Are we seeing a trend toward online censorship, mostly of conservative speech? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the fake news media and different examples of trial balloons being floated to test the censorship waters. The battle for freedom is underway in the West and it is embodied in the battle against free speech.

Do persecuted Christians receive the proper treatment when seeking asylum? Ken Timmerman (www.iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, discusses his new book, ISIS Begins, a work of fiction that describes the real life interactions between Christians and the UN and how Muslims seeking asylum are treated far better.

Has there ever been a President more maligned than Donald Trump? Robert Spencer (www.jihadwatch.org), Director of Jihad Watch is back with us to show that another U.S. President was also treated as a bumpkin, an outsider to politics, and was disliked by both parties. The identity of that President may surprise you.

We revisit the topic of online censorship with Brian McNicoll (www.aim.org), Editor at Accuracy in Media who shows examples of speech suppression on Facebook and Twitter and discusses what can be done about it.

With great division in this country, are we headed for a second Civil War? Historian and novelist H.W. “Harry” Crocker III (www.regnery.com), shows how people from both sides in the 1860s were very similar in beliefs, unlike now where there is a deep ideological divide. The outrage and battles waged by the Left today could end up throwing us into a new Civil War.

John’s quote of the week:
What the Left doesn’t understand is: they think they’re going to come back into power at some point and then they’re going to declare war. The Right has been patient for a very long time. They have witnessed the shenanigans that have gone on both pre- and post-election. The Right will not tolerate that anymore.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss the origin of fake news, how media outlets manipulate words to create a narrative, and the nature of censorship.

How does one discern truth in the age of fake news? Departing from the norm, Producer Steve takes over the mike for this week’s snoozalogue (don’t worry John will be back for the rest of the show), looking at ways to recognize truth whenever mainstream news pundits give you a fake story. All it takes is hard work and determination. And maybe a little prayer.

Back at the helm, John welcomes Linda Harvey (www.missionamerica.com), Founder of Mission America, who continues our discussion on education unions after the Janus decision and how the NEA looks out for itself and for teachers, but not for children.

Why is it so difficult for Islam to assimilate with Western culture? Robert Spencer (www.jihadwatch.org), Director of Jihad Watch, contrasts gender equality and free speech, bastions of the West, with traditional Islamic ideals and discusses the history of jihad.

The uproar continues over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. David Harsanyi (www.thefederalist.com), Senior Editor at The Federalist, examines why leftists who oppose Judge Kavanaugh are more afraid of the Constitution than the man tasked with upholding it.

Understanding the past helps predict and possibly prevent calamity in the future. Stephen Halbrook (www.independent.org), Senior Fellow at the Independent Institute, analyzes gun registration and confiscation in France just prior to Hitler’s takeover and asks the question: what would gun confiscation look like if it were implemented in today’s America?

Finally, longtime guest and friend of the program Avi Lipkin (www.vicmord.com) joins us to reveal Israel’s new Bible Bloc Party, a political group he founded to give Christians, a growing population in Israel, representation in the Knesset.

John’s quote of the week:
Gun registration almost always precedes gun confiscation. The real question is what happens after that? The people today who are screaming for more gun regulations are the very same voices that tell us our rights to free speech and other rights don’t count.

Section 6 In this week’s Section 6, we play an interview John gave on Stand Up For The Truth on Q90FM in Wisconsin recently. John discusses the frenetic downfall of the leftist ideology as well as President Trump’s complicated and intertwined global negotiations. He goes on to look at truth and relativism in today’s world and building your worldview on rock, not sand.

Are you hearing about what’s important in the world or just another media narrative? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the war of words between President Trump and the Federal Reserve and the future of the U.S. economy. The media aren’t covering it so we are. Energy, money, and taxes are the key things to watch out for – not secret lawyer tapes or redacted documents.

Dany ShohamHow is President Trump handling the complicated nexus of negotiations with North Korea and Iran? Dr. Dany Shoham (www.besacenter.org), Senior Researcher at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, examines the nuclear link between those two countries and how the media is ignoring all of it.

David SchmusThe Supreme Court handed down a decision on public unions that is making waves in the world of education. David Schmus (www.ceai.org), Executive Director of the Christian Educators Association International shows how the Janus case has opened the door for public school teachers to opt of paying union dues and how unions are doing everything they can to keep that from happening.

Bruce ThorntonRight trumping has become a sport for the Left. Bruce Thornton (www.fresnostate.edu), Professor of Classics and Humanities at California State Fresno, discusses the importance of constitutional originalists on the Supreme Court so that everyone’s fundamental rights are protected equally.

John and Producer Steve finish out the show looking at President’s Trump’s behind-the-scenes strategies versus the constant onslaught of outrage from the mainstream media and the Left. For example, we were all going to pay dearly for tariffs against the EU, but now they are coming to the table to negotiate an end to unfair trade.

John’s quote of the week:
What has to happen to enforce these newly discovered rights is a very ham-fisted government has to come in and threaten a particular group of people to give the other people their rights.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve look at President Trump’s refusal to declassify Russiagate documents, the media’s continued bias, the power of the Federal Reserve, and the uptick in violent depictions of President Trump.

President Trump has brought about the end of the world following his summit meeting with Vladimir Putin, so says the media. Is it true? In this week’s boralogue, John compares President Obama’s Russian strategy with that of President Trump’s and the latter is winning. But outrage and hyperbole are spewed forth to mask that fact. The question the media is not asking is: do you want someone who does something for show or someone who is effective?

How we view Judaism and Christianity depends on how much we study them. Berlin-based political analyst and columnist Raphael Castro (www.besacenter.org) shows us how a decline in the study of Scriptures has led to a loss of identity in Western culture. Europe has led the way in this and America seems eager to follow.

John and Producer Steve take a moment to discuss the summit between Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, looking at the bigger picture rather than the often repeated hysterical hyperbole (or hysterbole as we’re calling it) you are seeing on mainstream media channels.

Does the Bible contradict or promote socialism? Dr. Jay Richards (www.catholic.edu), Professor at the Catholic School of America, discusses the difference between government and personal involvement when it comes to helping the poor and what the Bible tells us about economics.

Is the resistance movement accomplishing anything or is it just causing more division? Author and historian Daniel Mallock (www.danielmallock.com) is back with us to explain how some groups of people have drifted away from honoring the Constitution as well as the philosophy behind the leftist hatred in this country.

John’s quote of the week:
We started out in this country by saying rights were given by God. Therefore, they are anchored in rock and they can’t be changed. The innate value of mankind – of humans – cannot be changed. Because that was given by God. No law can strike that away.

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at the origins of the French Revolution from an economic and religious perspective and compares many of the events then with events happening now.
