Happy New Year! We begin 2017 with a look at the fake news phenomenon. In this week’s boralogue, John points out the hypocrisy of those who believe in relative truth but are outraged by fake news and shows how Martin Luther, the Renaissance, and the last 500 years have led to better access and control of information.

Dutch politician Geert Wilders was recently found guilty of violating his country’s hate speech laws. William Watkins (www.independent.org), Research Fellow at the Independence Institute, shows that hate speech laws are purposefully vague and references the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 to show that it has happened in the U.S. before.

Will the Trump administration stick to its campaign promises in regards to education? Alex Newman (www.thenewamerican.com), Correspondent for The New American, looks at the need for education reform, including an overhaul of Common Core, and how Trump’s pick of Becky Devos for Education Secretary most likely means reform is out for now.

Will the United States be ready should an EMP destroy our electric grid. Bill Forstchen (www.onesecondafter.com), History Professor at Montreat College, discusses the threat of EMP, preparedness by not only individuals but also government, and his belief that the Trump administration will take the threat seriously.

Finally, is it worth trying to evangelize to people who are militantly atheist, especially on the internet? London-based Baptist Minister Mark Woods (www.christiantoday.com), advises that while trolls can discourage, there is always someone out there who gets the message. Time management and self-discipline are key elements when engaging others.

John’s quote of the week:
“The idea of the Christian humanists was that every human being has inherent dignity before God and being personally responsible before God for his or her conduct. That caused radical changes in western civilization; the idea of individual ability and individual responsibility.”

What is driving the conflicts we’ve seen in the past few weeks in France, Germany, Baton Rouge and Orlando? In this week’s boralogue, John examines common threads through these tragedies and shows that in order to solve the problem, we need to stop listening to politically correct elites and focus on the truth: we have a morality problem and a collision of worldviews.

Is the narrative from Black Lives Matter accurate? Heather MacDonald (www.manhattan-institute.org), Fellow at the Manhattan Institute reveals statistics which challenge the account that white police officers are the most dangerous threat to black men today. In fact, African-Americans are much more likely to die from violence in their own communities than in officer-related shootings.

John plays a clip of Dave McAlvany and Kevin Orrick (www.mcalvany.com) from the McAlvany Weekly Commentary where they discuss the possibility that the failed coup in Turkey was orchestrated by President Erdogan to gain a more powerful hold on the country.

Is it a surprise that the EU is floundering under its own weight on a flimsy foundation? Wallace Henley (www.wallacehenley.net), Senior Pastor at Second Baptist Church in Houston, TX discusses how Christianity was purposefully left out of the EU’s formation and how institutions that cater to political correctness are drowning out the Christian worldview today.

Finally this week, we welcome back Bill Forstchen (www.dayofwrathbook.com), History Professor at Montreat College, who analyzes not only the suppression of freedom of speech and thought on undergraduate and college campuses, but also the dangers of ISIS and our unpreparedness as a country to handle their terror campaign.

John’s quote of the week:
“The violence and the murders that you are seeing must be dealt with at the morality and worldview levels, but those are the very areas where the politically correct crowd will not allow us to go.”
