Window to the Left

The Overton Window is a perception at any given moment of what is acceptable in society. In this week’s extended boralogue, John gives several examples of how the Overton Window has drifted leftward over the decades. It was originally moored in Judeo-Christian values but then broke free and caused a progressive change in society that has left us on a pitching deck of constantly changing, relativist, self-contradicting ideas.

Attorney Jared PetersonConservative speech is being curtailed all over the world, but nowhere so egregiously than in Germany. Attorney Jared Peterson (amgreatness.com) joins us to discuss the tactics of the very leftist German media, plans to shut down dissenting speech, the thwarting of democracy in the German state of Thuringia, and pushback against the Left from some very unlikely sources.

American ThinkerJohn takes a moment to examine the philosophies of government and economics in regards to the ultimate success or failure of a society. He then welcomes JR Dunn (www.americanthinker.com), Consulting Editor at American Thinker, who shines a light on the confusion, uproar, contradictions, and oftentimes lack of strategy from the Left.

John’s quote of the week:
Even if we took all of the first world countries, it is impossible to take in all of the third world. The only thing you can try to do is make them prosperous in their own countries. That is where the philosophy of government and the philosophy of economics either makes or breaks a society.

On this week’s extra segment, we play a double feature from recent past on dysfunction and political correctness on college campuses, specifically with professors who don’t tow the leftist line. First, we have Robert Lopez from January 2017 followed by Michael Rectenwald from August 2018. Both share their experiences with woke colleagues and administrators.

Will the Real Fascist Please Stand Up?

President Trump’s inaugural speech was labeled dark and his recent executive order on immigration is considered by many as unconstitutional. In this week’s boralogue, John looks back at FDR’s ‘dark times’ speech and Bill Clinton’s 1995 speech advocating for tighter immigration and stronger borders. Was there a constitutional crisis then? No. Is there a crisis now? No. It’s all hyperbolic rhetoric.

Those who frame the debate and control definitions, control the information. Thomas Lifson (www.americanthinker.com), Editor and Founder of American Thinker discusses Google’s attempt to influence the masses by redefining ‘fascism’ as a right wing movement as well as the loss in credibility of the mainstream media.

What does the word ‘fascism’ actually mean? William Watkins (www.independent.org), Research Fellow at the Independent Institute examines the true definition and points out that redefining terms, falsely accusing others of hate speech, and assaulting people in order to silence opposition is actual fascist behavior.

January 27 marked the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 1 fire that killed three astronauts on a launch pad at Cape Kennedy, Florida. Joining us is Vern Westgate (www.vernwrites.com), retired Air Force veteran and NASA engineer who describes his work with Apollo 1, the engineering needed to make space travel safe, and the bureaucratic shuffling before and after the accident.

John’s quote of the week:
“Many people have forgotten the history of the country, why we are where we are, why the Constitution is written the way it is, and why it’s important to observe that. They have maybe not forgotten, but many never knew. That’s due to the politically correct history which is taught in the American education system and it’s leading us to wreckage.”

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.
