America has become polarized on a massive scale. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the extreme dichotomy in Congress, with ultra-radical leftists on one side versus the other side that’s becoming more and more conservative. This has resulted in a struggle by the establishment of both parties to regain control. It has become oppressor versus oppressed and it will take a strong truth-based worldview to survive.

The Green New Deal sounds familiar because it’s repackaged Agenda 21 language. We welcome back Tom DeWeese (www.americanpolicy.org), Founder and President of the American Policy Center, who describes the plan to eliminate sovereignty and private property ownership embedded in the language of these agendas.

The World Council of Churches often send in volunteers to observe life “under the occupation” in Israel and then return to the U.S. to advocate for anti-Israel policies in their churches and communities. Yona Schiffmiller (www.ngo-monitor.org), Research Director at NGO Monitor examines how the UN is involved and asks: is this anti-Israel or anti-Semitism or both?

If this isn’t the End Times, it is definitely a convincing dress rehearsal. Shane Idleman (www.shaneidleman.com), Founder and Lead Pastor at Westside Christian Fellowship in California, discusses how political correctness has influenced churches and sermons and advocates for a strong truth-based character for pastors moving forward.

John and Producer Steve finish off the show this week reviewing stories making news including a failed Brexit vote, Paul Manafort’s sentencing, and an unfair, unequal system of justice.

John’s quote of the week:
You see how intersectionality is affecting us. It’s becoming harder and harder to tell friend from foe, truth from narrative. You cannot run a country or a society on intersectionality. You just can’t. It results in nothing but chaos and disaster.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play a round-table from 2013 focusing on change agents, how they operate, and how community meetings really work. It was relevant then and it’s relevant today. Very entertaining round table. Plus, how often do you hear John use the phrase ‘Teflon roller coaster?’

With crazy stories inundating us every day, how did we get to this point? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at history from the protests of the 1960s through the blossoming of the internet age to where we are now with late-term abortion laws and media people not living up to journalistic standards. There are those who are tired of being choked by political correctness and they are fighting back.

If we’re not careful, the socialistic healthcare system in Canada could make its way south. Author and retired businessman William Gairdner (www.williamgairdner.ca) joins us from the Great White North to discuss the costs and rules of free healthcare for all and how some, usually the well-connected, get around those rules.

The Pope just signed an agreement with Sheik Ahmad el-Tayeb, the grand imam of al-Azhar. Author and Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim (www.raymondibrahim.com) contrasts the watered-down language of the agreement with the Sheik’s speeches about it in Arabic. He also dissects the media and liberal adoration of Islam and the Pope.

Is the national emergency declaration on the border wall a good idea? It depends on who you ask. Dr. Merrill Matthews (www.ipi.org), Resident Scholar with the Institute for Policy Innovation, examines partisan hypocrisy over the execution of emergency declarations and what that may mean for the future.

John’s quote of the week:
“The education system is broken; it’s being run by the people who broke it. But they actively, aggressively oppose any kind of reform which would fix it. Yet these same politicians send their kids to private schools. They don’t want to put themselves in the very system they’re smashing down on everyone else.”

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview John gave last week on Stand Up For The Truth with Mike LeMay on Q90FM in Wisconsin (standupforthetruth.com). John and Mike discuss political correctness in both society and the Church as well as the increase of being a victim and how it has become a badge of honor, and the best ways to get back on track with Christianity in the west.

Reforming Backward

In order to reform, a country and its leaders must be willing and ready to do so. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the failure of socialism in Venezuela and its creeping rise in America. Reform is needed in both countries but how that shakes out, who will relentlessly fight against it, and whether or not it will be successful remains to be seen. Reformation is a double-edged sword: hopefully America will choose the correct way to do it.

We have asked before if Islam can be reformed. This week, we seek the answer from a former Iranian Muslim who has converted to Christianity. Shahram Hadian (www.tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth in Love Project, is back with us to discuss the history of Islam, ways to combat those who shout, ‘Islamophobe!’, and how Islam is actually reforming – just backward to its origins.

Fresh from his trip to Pennsylvania, John welcomes his fellow conference presenter Pastor Robert Johnessee (www.foi.org) who is the Church Ministries Representative at the Friends of Israel. Pastor Johnessee recounts his experience with those who are trying to influence the church with PC narratives and how to bridge the gap between two ideological sides.

John finishes up the show this week giving a brief and sobering persecution update.

John’s quote of the week:
“Reformers, even though the need is obvious to many many people, meet tremendous opposition because the system and its corruption have benefited many many people. Those are the swamp critters and they love the warmth and the rottenness that corruption has brought them. They are not going to go along with reform.”

In this week’s Extras segment, we fire up the way back machine to an interview from February 2015 where John speaks with Bill Federer. He gives a history of Islam throughout the Middle East and Europe and how it has affected several key events in history.

Lack of journalistic standards has shown a light on a bigger problem: intersectionality. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at how the clanging and banging of intersectionality and its attempted adherence to social justice has left real people, like the Covington High School kids, in its wake. Intersectionality and its media acolytes are pointing to the self-destructing foundation of a dying belief system.

Globalism has been on a steady rise for decades, but how has it become popular? Researcher and author Carl Teichrib (www.gameofgods.ca) describes how dynamic speakers tell us we all need to work together, eschewing sovereignty, to save the planet, all while disguising a hatred for Christianity and a love of paganism.

John takes a moment to dissect a speech given by Walter Cronkite in 1999 upon accepting a global governance award. Cronkite advocated for more global rule and less sovereignty. John notes that ousting sovereignty will never fly with many countries so the idea of global governance would never work. That, it seems, is the way it is.

It’s a unique time in the Middle East as several events and issues are coming together. Seth Frantzman (www.jpost.com), Op-Ed Editor for the Jerusalem Post gives us an on the ground perspective from Israel, examining the generational change in leadership of several Middle East nations, how Israel is faring, and the formation of unlikely alliances.

John and Steve wrap up the program this week discussing the epidemic of false assault claims, the media’s response to them, and President Trump’s emergency declaration in regards to border security and the wall.

John’s quote of the week:
“When we go through these three stages – traditional, transitional, and transformational – the middle stage which we are in right now is a big blurry. It’s very hard for people to tell what’s happening, where they’ve come from, and where they’re going. And they don’t realize that major changes are underway.”

In this week’s Extras segment, John is still under the weather so we are charging up the way back machine again and playing an interview from 2014 with Os Guinness. He and John discuss Christianity and how it always provides answers, even during times of trouble, and has always proved wrong those who think it dead.
