The country is seriously divided; two groups of people starting from different worldview assumptions, using different reasoning processes, arriving at different conclusions. What will this mean as the country plows into future crises in the near future? Steve Deace (www.stevedeace.com) is author of Rules for Patriots: How Conservatives Can Win Again. Is the divide surmountable and which side rests on truth and which rests on narrative?
Then Dr. Michael Coffman, Ph.D., (www.americaplundered.com) returns to the program to provide us with a history of land rights in the West and the effect Agenda 21-style environmentalism is having on the property rights of the people who live there.
John’s boralogue details the lessons we can learn about how the media view events, based on their coverage or non-coverage of the Bundy conflict in Nevada.Read More
Happy Easter, everyone. First time in a while Eastern and Western dates for Easter fall on the same date.
Most people don’t get mad for no reason. So why then are so many farmers, ranchers, and property holders fuming at the Bureau of Land Management and other government agencies? John’s boralogue points out that understanding what’s at stake at different levels of reality from environmental to financial makes it easy to understand why.
Then we’ll continue this thread in a spirited discussion with James Simpson (www.examiner.com), who details all the financial dealings surrounding the Bundy ranch issue in Nevada. It’s far more than the mainline media reported.
Next, after Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, we posed the possibility of using an airplane to deliver a homemade nuclear bomb. Of course one should ask if that’s really feasible? Robert Gleason, author of The Nuclear Terrorist (www.thenuclearterrorist.com), says sadly so, especially since security around the world’s nuclear facilities is appallingly weak, making the theft of uranium and plutonium easy to accomplish.
John’s boralogue kicks off the program with a Middle East intelligence summary which leads right into our first guest.
Much has been made of the recent negotiations with Iran about its nuclear weapons aspirations but, surprise surprise, it seems Iran is plowing ahead with its nuclear program regardless of discussions. Dr. Andrew Bostom (www.andrewbostom.org/blog) is author of Iran’s final Solution for Israel: The Legacy of Jihad and Shi’ite Islamic Jew-Hatred in Iran.
Much happening in the skies during the next week, including a blood moon total lunar eclipse on Passover. Listeners have asked us to revisit the tetrad of (four) blood moons in 2015 and 2015, so Pastor Mark Biltz (www.elshaddaiministies.us) rejoins the show for a discussion of his book Blood Moons.
Do businesses have moral obligations and/or rights and how well will Christians deal with new healthcare mandates that may go contrary to their religious belief systems? We’ll examine that issue in a conversation with Dr. Joseph Capizzi, author of A Catechism for Business: Tough Ethical Questions and Insights from Catholic Teaching.
Finally, a key issue in the healthcare debate involves the right of women to have various types of contraceptives which may be abortifacient provided under healthcare plans. Similar to physical abortion, these drugs can significantly raise a woman’s risk of breast cancer. Karen Malec from the Coalition on Abortion and Breast Cancer (www.abortionbreastcancer.com) joins us.
We’ll spend the program today examining geopolitical issues and finding perspectives you might not have obtained elsewhere.
Quite frequently our politicians are busy running around the world in pursuit of negotiations with rogue regimes or difficult situations. The Iranian situation, the Israel-Palestinian Peace Process, Syria, and the Crimea are key examples. Why do we so often engage in such failing talks and are they ever successful? Michael Rubin (www.aei.org) is author of Dancing with the Devil, the Perils of Engaging Rogue Regimes.
Amid the fury of debate rotating in western media around Russia’s Crimean goals, it might be interesting to know how the Russian people view the same geopolitical questions. This subject is especially important when events are place in an historic setting. Jennifer Eremeeva (www.russialite.com) has lived in Russia for the last two decades and she joins the program from Moscow for a spirited conversation on today’s Russia plus a review of the historic events which have led that country to where it is today.
John’s boralogue describes how Germany’s foolish pursuit of knee-jerk environmentalism, based on politically-correct and questionable ideas, can make one’s country extremely vulnerable geopolitics.
