Happy New Year everyone.
We’re taking this weekend off for some R&R as we brace for what promises to be a chaotic new year.
Today’s pre-recorded program features another vignette of a personality involved in the Middle East conflict, notably Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan. Author William Simpson, author of "The Prince," guests.
Then another Middle East theme, with clips from White House news correspondent Bill Koenig’s address (www.watch.org) at the recent Koinonia Institute’s conference in November on the politics of the U.S.’s involvements in the Israel/Palestine conflict and some of the spiritual repercussions.

Merry Christmas everyone.
We’re taking the weekend off but we’ve provided you with some interesting interviews.
Frivolous use of the term “racist” in politics is destroying free speech and rational debate, not to mention trashing Dr. Martin Luther King’s original dream of a color-blind society. A radical break in the public’s tolerance of this nonsense is sure to come as Dr. Patrick Garry, J.D., Ph.D, explains in his book “Cultural Whiplash, the Unforeseen Consequences of America’s Crusade Against racial Discrimination.”
Then career law enforcement professional Steve Doran revisits the show with an update on national security leaks at Los Alamos Laboratories. In addition, we discuss the growing tendency of cop shows on TV — both the reality and dramatic variety — to treat the Constitution as negligible as long as they claim “they’re getting the bad guys.”

John does an extended boralogue with a detailed presentation of the sea change ballet in the U.S.’s Middle East policy, which means Israel is really going to be put on the hot plate.
Then Gilead Ini from CAMERA (www.camera.org) joins the conversation to review former President Jimmy Carter’s new and controversial book, "Palestine: Peace not Apartheid," which can be summed up in one sentence: Palestine good; Israel bad.
In the last hour of the program John offers a snapshot of the current global economic situation, focused on Treasury Secretary Paulson and Fed Chairman Bernanke’s trip to China to stabilize the dollar. Finally we round out with an appearance by Dan Gainor, director of BMI (www.businessandmedia.org), to monitor rising levels of hysteria about global warming and the failure of western countries to pony up the transfer bucks to international bureaucrats.Read More
The CFR script for a new process in the Middle East came into full play the last two weeks: Former President Jimmy Carter poked the hornet’s nest with his new book on the Israel/Palestine issue, coupled with a 3.5-hour interview on CSPAN. Then the Iraq Study Group published its recommendations for Middle East negotiations, with James Baker suggesting possibly leaving Israel out of it.
Finally President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair held a joint press conference on the new Iraq exit strategy. We’re still assessing all the data points so we’ll defer to a later program for a full analysis on the emerging situation.
The Emergent Church operates on the same principles as Purpose- Driven Churches but incorporates new items such as medieval meditation and spiritual formation programs. Either way, thousands of people are being ground up in their churches. We’ll look at defending your church from a takeover. Pastor Kevin Johnson from Perspective Underground (www.contender.org) joins us.
40 years of moral decay and psychologizing children in public schools coupled with political correctness in the psychiatric profession have taken a serious toll. Massive numbers of U.S.
college students suffer severe depression. Dr. Miriam Grossman, M.D., is a UCLA psychiatrist and author of the book, "Unprotected."
She is demanding that the PC myths about promiscuous sex in her profession be stopped.
John’s boralogue analyzes the three phases of the "flying wedge"
being aimed at the evangelical church.
