Have we learned anything by watching the news this summer? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at subjects the media and political candidates refuse to talk about, like the future of our economy, the tendency for politicians to raise taxes and regulate business, and the unpleasant choices we’re left with regarding fiscal policy. When those in power choose instead to focus on toxic narratives, we’re left with deadly consequences.

What is social justice and why is it important? We welcome back economist and author Pat Wood (www.technocracy.news) who discusses the history of social justice, redistribution of wealth, and technocracy as the science behind social engineering. When one group wants what another has, social justice becomes nothing more than legalized covetousness.

Social justice, if left unfettered, will likely result in socialism. Luis Fleischman (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Senior Advisor at the Center for Security Policy, analyzes how socialism has affected Venezuela, where power for the elites has become an end unto itself and the people are the ones who suffer.

John’s quote of the week:
“Politicians will not get out of the way and lower the taxes and lower the regulations to get the small businesses going, to get the jobs going, to get to where we need to get going, going.”

We are taking a vacation this week for our intelligence briefing, Section 6, but John will return next week with analysis on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

Sometimes others will write a boralogue for you. This week, John reads a letter from a listener in Canada who discusses multiculturalism and the difference in media perception between Asians and African-Americans. Can we speak about important issues openly or will the politically correct narratives continue to drown out the truth? People are beginning to wake up to the fact that they’re being duped and they’re starting to fight back.

In January, two U.S. Navy riverine patrol boats were detained by the Iranian National Guard in the Persian Gulf. Ray Starmann (www.usdefensewatch.com), Editor of U.S. Defense Watch, draws on his armed forces expertise to give us a detailed account of the event and examines both our defense readiness and the changing culture within the military.

Finally we welcome Olivier Melnick (www.newantisemitism.com), Director of Chosen People Ministries, who looks at the history of anti-Semitism and the rise of a new wave both in the U.S. and around the world that has led to biased news coverage as well as the BDS movement.

John’s quote of the week:
“If the rest of the politically correct crowd wishes to sit back on their dung heap bemoaning what they do, that’s their business. But you and I and all of those who have awakened, we’re moving on.”

As always, join us online for our Section 6 intelligence briefing featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

A controversy is brewing involving an international Christian charity’s activities in the Middle East. We skip the boralogue this week and begin with Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA, who examines Israel’s allegations that a top World Vision employee in the Gaza Strip funneled donations away from charity programs and into the coffers of Hamas.

When the Iran deal materialized last year, we all knew there was more to it than was announced. Jennifer Breedon (www.clarionproject.org), Legal Analyst for the Clarion Project joins us to reveal the dangers behind the deal along with a recently discovered link between the September 11 attacks and Saudi Arabia.

What are the true origins behind the Black Lives Matter movement? Political writer Jim Simpson (www.aim.org) shows how the Left will create divisions in order to further their agenda and how the truth is often pushed aside in favor of narrative.

Has the federal government’s involvement improved our education system? Vicki Alger (www.vickialger.com), Research Fellow at the Independent Institute discusses the difficulties in one-size-fits-all educational programs and offers alternative solutions for parents.

John’s quote of the week:
“Rather than having two people representing different sides of an issue, challenging each other where you can hear the ideas hashed out, people tend to watch what reinforces their own worldview. And even when that is faulty they don’t hear the contradicting evidence because the media are not honestly presenting it.”

With our two major party candidates set for this November’s presidential election, silly season has begun. In this week’s boralogue, John reminds us that politics is a blood sport and facts and reason are usually thrown out of the window in favor of soundbites. A day of reckoning approaches and while most people ignore the warning signs, whoever wins the upcoming election will be the one we chose to deal with it.

Our system of government was created as a series of checks and balances. What happens when one branch begins overstepping its authority? Dr. John Sparks (www.visionandvalues.org), Retired Dean at Grove City College, looks at the recent Supreme Court case involving abortion clinics in Texas and discusses the continuous onslaught of right trumping, being brought to you by the highest court in the land.

Next we play a brief clip from the Financial Sense Newshour of write-in presidential candidate and economist Laurence Kotlikoff (www.kotlikoff.net) explaining the real, and much higher, numbers behind our national debt.

Refugee crises have erupted in a number of countries, largely due to radical Islamists and the violence they perpetrate. But what about Christian refugees who are caught up in the crisis? Author and political pundit Joseph Klein (www.frontpagemag.com) looks at the problems Christians are facing in refugee camps and the Obama administration’s apparent disregard for Christians in favor of admitting more Muslim refugees.

Finally, we revisit the topic of gold and silver with precious metals aficionado Dave Morgan (www.silver-investor.com) who predicts as currencies begin to falter, gold and silver will make a comeback. He also examines what the powers that be may have in store when the financial catastrophe hits.

John’s quote of the week:
“Governments may not get through times like these but people like you and I always do. If we know what’s happening, we can pray and ask God to show us our way through the tsunami waves to come and we can help each other.”
