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.

Buy Worldview Wars 5 hour Lecture SeriesWhat is the nature of truth, and why can’t many Christians adequately defend their faith? Why and how is Christianity being marginalized in the public marketplace of ideas? Is there a carefully planned and executed agenda running to wipe out the Christian faith and those who assert absolute truth? We address all these questions and more in this four part series.

John Loeffler analyzes the history, strategies, and weaknesses of the competing worldviews of the 19th and 20th century. Philosophers such as Rousseau, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Darwin, Nietzsche, Marx, and Dewey have radically altered western culture through postmodernism, values relativism and dialectical consensus. They have modern-day followers who are bent on destroying the very foundations of Western society.

Identify the moving parts of your worldview and gain insight into these opposing ideologies.  You have a mission to discern the truth. What is truth? Truth is simply: “that which pertains to reality“. Reality is that great equalizer and when reality becomes real there’s no room left for excuses.

What can we learn from the heavy and at times crazy news cycle this week? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the media’s hypocrisy and manipulation of news stories to fashion a narrative, using the immigration housing policy as an example. The media, through their bias, have become unreliable sources of information and water carriers for leftist ideologies.

What happens when Alinskyites have their own tactics used against them? Answer: they don’t know what to do. Brian Joondeph (www.retinacolorado.com), Partner and Retina Surgeon at Colorado Retina Associates, gives examples of and discusses how President Trump is using these tactics against the media and the democrats and they have no idea how to handle it.

The Inspector General’s report has been released and several instances of bias were revealed within the FBI and DOJ. Sidney Powell (www.sidneypowell.com), attorney and expert in federal appeals, analyzes the report, the implications, and the possible future of anti-Trump, pro-Clinton agents and lawyers. Will heads roll?

John and Producer Steve close out the show this week discussing hypocrisy in the media and government and ask the question: is it all political jockeying and narrative confirmation at all cost, or can we have a serious discussion about solutions to our problems?

John’s quote of the week:
It’s the media’s job to establish a continuity trail and to detect contradictions in policies and what people said two years ago versus now. The media, however, are now part of the political shell game rather than acting as careful observers of it.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss Daniel Greenfield’s article about 5 rules President Trump uses to rule the world and how those rules are applied in handling Middle East issues. They also touch on hypocrisy in the media and in government.

What can we learn from tragedies like the Florida shooting? The media will always play the same old gun control script, for one. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the arguments made by gun control advocates and points out their logical fallacies. Doing the same failing thing each time won’t work. We need to change the moral foundation of society, not do away with guns.

In the wake of the FISA scandal as well as the missed red flags in Florida, what is happening to our intelligence community? Clare Lopez (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Vice President for Research at the Center for Security Policy – and a former CIA agent – discusses the lack of proper training within intelligence agencies and the willful blindness due to a PC worldview.

Can an American town enact an ordinance that stifles religious freedom? Mike LeMay (www.standupforthetruth.com), General Manager of Q90 FM radio near Green Bay, recounts how the city of De Pere, Wisconsin has done just that, potentially requiring churches to engage in practices against their religious beliefs. He and others are filing a lawsuit to stop it.

We welcome Paul Van Noy (www.candlelight.org), Pastor at Candlelight Fellowship in northern Idaho, who recounts his trip to Thailand to visit Pastor X, touring the immigration detention centers, and seeing firsthand how donation moneys are being spent.

After analyzing comments from economist Lawrence Kotlikoff, who discusses the reality of social spending debt and offers a possible solution to the problem, John chats with Dr. Myles Schneider (www.mylesofhealth.com), a foot and ankle doctor in Virginia, about alternatives to Obamacare popping up in some states and healthy solutions to lower costs.

John’s quote of the week:
“Foolish people double down on bad arguments and they implement double the number of bad ideas in law, which of course do nothing to make future situations safer and oftentimes make them worse while tangling other people up in the law of unintended consequences. This is called putting lipstick on a pig.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss the lead up to the school shooting in Florida. John then goes on to look at news from the Middle East including the U.S. and Israel on one side and Iran and Syria on the other. Some schools in the Middle East are teaching students to hate and become martyrs. John asks the hard questions no one else seems to want to pose.
