What can we learn about the media from their coverage of certain events over the past few weeks? In this week’s boralogue, John compares media reporting from the New Zealand mosque shootings and the Sri Lankan church bombings. Coverage depends on narrative – if the story supports the narrative, they run with it. If it doesn’t, they ignore it. That is your progressive news media in the 21st century.

Gender reassignment procedures are on the rise in Canada and some children are being taken away from protesting parents. Doctors are being forced to choose between their jobs and their consciences. Emilie Kao (www.heritage.org), Director of the Devos Center for Religion and Civil Society at the Heritage Foundation, joins us to discuss.

Trump Derangement Syndrome has reached a fever pitch in several areas of society including the media. We welcome author Blake Harris (www.blakejharris.com) to the show to give us a liberal’s point of view. He shows how those who support President Trump face repercussions – even if they are democrats, and he gives examples of how journalistic standards have fallen by the wayside.

Public schools need reforming but is there a need for reform in Christian schools as well? Ray Moore, Jr. (www.exodusmandate.org), Founder and Board President at Exodus Mandate, returns after many years away to discuss the need for reform, the surprising lack of support from pastors, and a hope for an eventual stop to the indoctrination of children.

John and Steve finish out the program this week discussing 2020 election theories and how the investigation battle between the Republicans and the Democrats is in full swing. Who will come out the winner remains to be seen but for one party, the smear campaign may boomerang back on them.

John’s quote of the week:
There is a doctrinal erosion going on across the board in religious institutions. It keeps going on generation after generation. Christians always arrive thinking they are going to fight a war, not realizing they are simply engaged in a losing mop-up operation for a war that they lost thirty years ago when they didn’t fight it.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play a couple of interviews from August 2012, one concerning the enforcement of blasphemy laws, the other a story about a Colorado business being forced to comply with government standards against their religious beliefs. The battle for freedom of speech and freedom of religion are ones we must win.

The Notre Dame Cathedral has been witness to many significant historical events over the centuries but it suffered a devastating fire last Monday. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the symbolism of the fire and ties it to Easter Sunday and the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Though it may have been destroyed, it will rise again.

Referenda and initiatives, like Brexit in England and bills in the U.S. limiting government power, are voted on by the people. But does it ultimately matter? Robert Natelson (www.i2i.org), Senior Fellow in Constitutional Jurisprudence at the Independent Institute shows how the powers that be, including the courts, will go against the will of the people if it doesn’t fit with their narrative.

Google, Apple, and Microsoft are teaming up with foreign powers to spy on the public. Rex Lee (www.mysmartprivacy.com), Senior Analyst and Strategy Advisor at BLACKOPS Partners is back with us to discuss how backdoor surveillance technology embedded in our electronic devices is being used by countries like China and Russia to keep tabs on its citizens. Efforts, though, are underway to curtail some of the abuses.

John and Producer Steve finish up the program this week commenting on two humorous clips of democratic lawmakers who are chairs of their committees – Maxine Waters and Jerry Nadler – who had embarrassing moments last week interacting with witnesses and their testimony.

John’s quote of the week:
Just as on Easter Sunday, we have hope. We are crushed and brought down and ultimately killed in our bodies oftentimes for Christ. We still have hope because we shall yet live with him. He who believes in me, even though he die, yet shall he live.

In this week’s Extras segment, we crank up the way back machine to September 2014 for an interview with Melik Kaylan, author of the book, The Russia-China Axis, where he examines the geopolitics between these two countries at that time. When we wash away all the ridiculous Russia collusion nonsense – which hadn’t reared its ugly head in 2014 – we can see that many of the international tensions then are still relevant today.

It looks like Cloward and Piven are bringing their strategy to our southern border. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the reality on the border and how media and politicians are not accurately reporting on it. The media in blue bubble land is working overtime to distract us from not only the border but also the Mueller report, spying on the Trump campaign, and FISA court controversies. Don’t let the powers that be steer the conversation because chances are it will be filled with inaccuracies and hypocrisy.

The media and leftists are still smarting from their 2016 election loss. Will they learn from what happened? Victor Davis Hanson (www.victorhanson.com), Author and Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins us to discuss the factors that led to President Trump’s election win, the pros and cons of his presidency thus far, and how liberals’ actions and viewpoints today will most likely backfire come 2020.

Recent power outages in Venezuela have been blamed on either a poorly mismanaged grid system or an attempted cyber coup by the United States. Michael Daugherty (www.TheDevilInsideTheBeltway.com), Author and CEO of LabMD, gives us his view on why the power is out in Venezuela and examines grid vulnerabilities here in the U.S. and the need to improve our cyber security.

John rounds out the show this week covering various important issues including free speech on college campuses, socialist promises from presidential candidates, and America’s economic future with large amounts of unfunded liabilities. We need leaders who will tell us the truth and lead us through the tough times ahead.

John’s quote of the week:
When you’re in a paradigm shift, it goes through several different stages. The first one, people think it’s a bump in the road. The second one, it dawns on people that it isn’t a bump but they try to evaluate things in the light of everything that came before. In stage three, there’s a reconciliation in people’s minds that it has changed and the rules are new rules.

In this week’s Extras segment, we crank up the way back machine to August 2014 and a roundtable discussion with Drs. Jay Grimstead and Eugene Clingman on the authority and power of the Bible and Christianity and how that influences the West. It goes to the heart of truth, something just as relevant today as it was five years ago.
