Language and words are important in today’s political and theological debates, but leftists are looking to shut down debate by changing the definitions of words. In this week’s boralogue, John shows the devolution of free speech in Berkeley from the 1960s through today. We can allow people to speak as we do in a free society. We can ban all speech as they do in totalitarian countries. Or we pick and choose like we’re doing now.

The Iran agreement in 2015 by the Obama administration has had problems from the outset. Emily Landau (www.inss.org.il), Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for National Security Studies in Israel examines the agreement’s shortcomings and how the United States will proceed with Iran under President Trump.

Narratives by the Left and the media about Russian collusion with Donald Trump have turned out to be untrue. Cliff Kincaid (www.aim.org), Director of the Center for Investigative Journalism at Accuracy in Media joins us to discuss narrative spinning once wiretap allegations against Team Trump proved to be true and what’s really happening behind the scenes between Russia and the U.S.

Socialism has never succeeded at any time in history and current events in Venezuela are no exception. Marian Tupy (www.cato.org), Senior Policy Analyst at the Cato Institute, relates his experience growing up in Communist Czechoslovakia, explaining the realities of socialism, and warns us that the U.S. is walking down a dangerous path.

John’s quote of the week:
“Speech that upsets people is not protected but it’s OK when their speech upsets people. And despite all the blather about what speech is protected and what isn’t, since shaming isn’t working anymore, the whole effort now is to shut people up while pretending that you’re not shutting people up.”

This week during our Section 6 Intelligence Briefing, John addresses the topic of freedom of speech as well as more coverage on the ‘Fake News’ phenomenon.

Earlier this week, former NFL player and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez committed suicide in prison. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at suicide from a Christian perspective, showing that we all need the right spiritual guideposts to get us through the rough spots. It’s up to us to fit into God’s plan for us, not the other way around. As long as we have Christ as our guide, we will be OK, no matter what obstacles stand in our way.

What is one thing that a majority of terrorist groups around the world have in common? Cynthia Farahat (www.cynthiafarahat.com), Writing Fellow at the Middle East Forum looks at the granddaddy of all terrorist organizations, the Muslim Brotherhood, who funds many other groups and is conducting a civilization jihad. She also explores historical connections between the Muslim Brotherhood and the Third Reich.

We have reported on the plight of Pakistani Christians for more than a year now. Joining us this week is Reverend James Luke (www.lcceast.ca) of the Lutheran Church Canada near Toronto, a Pakistani-born Christian who discusses his recent speech before the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees and how some in Pakistan are fighting back against the country’s rigid blasphemy laws.

Tensions with North Korea have reached a fevered pitch in recent weeks. Author and American foreign policy expert, Dr. Anne Pierce (www.annerpierce.com) examines the Trump administration’s foreign policy reset to one of peace through strength, the dangers posed by North Korea and its dictator, and possible links with Iran’s nuclear program.

John’s quote of the week:
“If emotions are your guide, you will fail. If your heart is your guide, you will fail. The heart is irrevocably corrupt. If false idols and purposes are your reference points, you will fail. But if the Holy Spirit is your guide, no matter how bad the storm you will succeed and all pain will be turned to joy and a blessing for you.”

This week during our Section 6 Intelligence Briefing, John discusses Islamism in Chechnya, end-times indicators, and goes over recent listener emails.

Living Hope

Happy Easter everyone – He is risen! The world is in chaos, including the age old battle between truth and falsehood. In this week’s boralogue, John shows that Jesus, through His death and resurrection, has won that battle and is the Truth. He may have died on that cross but He conquered death for all of us and is our living hope. Our belief in that is crucial both now and for all eternity. He is risen indeed!

There is a decline in Christianity within many Western European countries. Will that decline spread west across the Atlantic? Christian speaker and author Dr. Alex McFarland (www.alexmcfarland.com) discusses intelligent design, atheism’s inferior argument, Europe’s religious decline, and the need to be spiritually prepared to face the world.

The Left has become an apologist for Islamic ideology, but what reason would they have for doing this? Nonie Darwish (www.formermuslimsunited.org), Director of Former Muslims United, examines the ideological differences between Christianity and Islam, why some countries give in to Muslim beliefs, and similarities between Koranic and Leftist tactics.

John’s quote of the week:
“Reality is always true; it always wins no matter what people think about the truth. The problem we seem to be running into isn’t so much one of truth; it’s a lack of agreement as to what truth is.”

Section 6 is on Easter break this week but we’ll be back next week with more analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

Do you find yourself perplexed by goings on in the political world? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at inconsistent media coverage with the Trump-Russia collusion and Susan Rice unmasking stories, showing that behind every double standard is an underlying single standard that holds up to logic. The single standard emerging is that the media are nothing but shills for the Democrat Party.

How does the mania about Russia today compare with the Red Scare in the 1950s? Columnist and author Diana West (www.dianawest.net) points out that while there’s much ado about nothing today, there really was a problem with communist infiltration of our government in the McCarthy-era. She also looks at the role of fake news then and now.

Liberals of the 1960s would probably be seen as conservative today. Matt Walsh (www.theblaze.com), Christian conservative blogger at The Blaze points out that the pendulum of moral values has swung far to the Left in the past few decades, threatening ethical standards and exposing liberalism as the worship of self.

Has Western Europe lost its identity and culture amidst a wave of Islamic migration? Clare Lopez (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Vice President at the Center for Security Policy examines both the losing demographic battles in countries like France and Sweden as well as the need for Americans to hold on to our culture by understanding where we came from.

John’s quote of the week:
“Reading articles about the Trump-Russia collusion, you can tell it’s all based upon ‘sort of be, might have been, could have been, something gotta be but might not have been, but it could have been, even though it doesn’t look like it had been.’ And for all that hoopla, what do we really know?”

This week during our Section 6 Intelligence Briefing, John discusses the recent U.S. attack on Syria, the Susan Rice Scandal, the Trump-Russia narrative, and hate speech laws.
