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.

Hate Speech Not Included

Germany once faced a grim choice: Marxism or Nazism. Today in America, we have the Marxist Antifa group and the white nationalist Nazis. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at those two choices and notes that, despite the message of those who would try to divide us, we do have a third choice: a Constitutional government that allows freedom. It’s always worked. The real battle is between totalitarianism and freedom. It’s time to make our voice heard and choose wisely.

Those who espouse views different from the accepted politically correct narrative are being squeezed out of social media. Paula Bolyard (www.pjmedia.com), Supervising Editor at PJ Media, discusses the new hate news index algorithms being used by Google and Facebook to flag “hate speech” and remove it from the internet.

Democratic socialism is a myth, but that doesn’t stop people from pointing to Norway and Sweden as successful examples of it. Nima Sanandaji (www.ecepr.org), President of the European Center for Entrepreneurship and Policy Reform, examines the fiction of democratic socialism and the benefits of free markets and strong work ethic over big government welfare.

Does voter fraud exist? Is it wrong to require an ID to vote? Irene Garcia (www.judicalwatch.org), Investigative Reporter at Judicial Watch joins us to discuss these issues as well as report on a case out of Massachusetts where federal authorities have discovered fake IDs were being sold to illegal immigrants who later voted in an election in Boston.

Finally we welcome back author and historian Bill Federer (www.americanminute.com) who gives us the history of hate speech back to the American and French Revolutions and reveals a long, drawn-out plan to deconstruct our past, change our history, and allow young students to forget what makes America the great country it is.

John’s quote of the week:
Nazism and Marxism are two sides of the same socialist totalitarian coin. And today, if you listen to some of the discourse, the United States is being offered the very same choice: Antifa neo-Marxism or neo-Nazi racism – as if there were no other choice. There is: a return to constitutional government that has provided us with so much freedom and prosperity.

Coming up in Section 6: natural disasters and emergency preparedness, looking logically at the global warming issue, a Christian persecution update, and a detailed primer on logic and critical thinking.

After last week’s Paris attacks, President Obama’s remarks show once again the administration’s refusal to acknowledge reality. In this week’s boralogue, John tells us what the progressive left won’t: terrorism is an Islamic problem and must be addressed as such. Until then, it will be impossible to tackle the crisis. We are told it is “religious” extremism and Muslims are the victims, not Christians. Reality is taking a backseat to narrative.

Were the terror attacks in Paris a prelude to future threats in America? We welcome back Israel Defense Force Captain Dan Gordon (www.dayofthedeadlibertyedition.com) who discusses NATO’s dysfunction, terror in gun-free zones, and the backlash forming against political correctness and its clash with reality. Governments must protect its citizens. Will ours?

With Thanksgiving coming up, we look back at the Christian roots of our nation with Bill Federer (www.americanminute.com), host of American Minute Radio. From religious persecution in Europe to establishing the 13 colonies, Bill reviews the Mayflower Compact and the Protestant foundation of America, disproving the revisionist view that the U.S. was built on secularism.

Finally, this weekend marks 52 years since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Bestselling author Phil Shenon (www.philipshenon.com) shows that the CIA tracked Oswald for months prior to November 1963, but never presented their intelligence to the Warren Commission. Could this failure to communicate have spawned countless conspiracy theories?

We are thankful for all of our listeners and wish you a happy and blessed Thanksgiving.

Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!

This week in Section 6, John takes a closer look at President Obama’s comments following the Paris terror attacks. Join us for another solid hour of in-depth analysis.
