Paradigm Shock

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast

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.

Moving the Goalposts

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast

The country and especially the media have been in quite the frenzy this past week. In this week’s boralogue, John goes back to the predictions he made about the media after the 2016 election and shows how we are reliving those moments now. There is a shock post-Mueller report but John predicts that the media will continue to behave as it has moving forward.

Far-left liberals are pushing many issues that go against America’s founding documents. Constitutional law attorney Jenna Ellis (www.washingtonexaminer.com) joins us to discuss the merits of the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact as well as packing the Supreme Court. Liberals keep moving the goalposts, slowly building popularity among their narratives.

One-worlders are at it again, this time using climate to further their cause. Alex Newman (www.thenewamerican.com), Foreign Correspondent for The New American, examines the UN’s push for global governance as well as push-back from many scientists, along with President Trump, who are taking on the climate alarmists.

A few states are foreclosing on property owners who owe back taxes and keeping the proceeds from the sale. Christina Martin (www.pacificlegal.org), Attorney at Pacific Legal Foundation describes how one of her clients lost his home to this practice and compares it to the problems with civil asset forfeiture.

John finishes up this week reading a century-old poem by Rudyard Kipling that mentions empty promises, like those of modern day socialists, will never pan out because at some point, reality becomes real and the fantasy is just that: a fantasy.

John’s quote of the week:
What we have been told repeatedly is the need for the radical transformation of America. ‘What does that mean?’ is the first thing you have to ask. You have to learn how to read what they’re telling you – then you’ll know where you’re going. And with radical transformation, it’s a socialist, idealized government where we have equality of outcome, not equality of opportunity.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview John gave this week on Stand Up For The Truth on Q90FM Radio from Wisconsin where he discusses, among other things, the Marxist tactics of the Left as well as various aspects concerning the Christian Church.

Narrative Trumped

160046 11/12/2016

After the election this week, many across America are asking, what happened? In this week’s boralogue, John shows that reality became real and now the elites and the media are continuing to push the same narrative they’ve always had, only massaged to accommodate for the new reality. It turns out that when you demean a large portion of the population by calling them racists and other names, that portion grows weary and votes out your candidate.

How are college students reacting to Donald Trump’s election? William Nardi (www.therabblerouser.org), current sophomore at Roger Williams University, joins us to show that students are angry, crying, and at times committing vandalism. Part of the problem lies with politically correct narratives that are taught at an early age and carry over into college.

Finally we explore the topic of euthanasia in Europe and Canada. Wesley Smith (www.discovery.org), Senior Director at the Discovery Institute discusses human exceptionalism and medical discrimination and how doctors, hospitals, insurance providers, and progressive policies are removing patient choice from end of life decisions. How soon before this becomes a reality in America?

John’s quote of the week:
“It’s the very fact that they’ve done nothing but called the people in flyover land names with little rational argument that people voted the way they did. They’re sick and tired of it.”

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.
