Lessons From the North

Login to access this full program.

With crazy stories inundating us every day, how did we get to this point? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at history from the protests of the 1960s through the blossoming of the internet age to where we are now with late-term abortion laws and media people not living up to journalistic standards. There are those who are tired of being choked by political correctness and they are fighting back.

If we’re not careful, the socialistic healthcare system in Canada could make its way south. Author and retired businessman William Gairdner (www.williamgairdner.ca) joins us from the Great White North to discuss the costs and rules of free healthcare for all and how some, usually the well-connected, get around those rules.

The Pope just signed an agreement with Sheik Ahmad el-Tayeb, the grand imam of al-Azhar. Author and Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim (www.raymondibrahim.com) contrasts the watered-down language of the agreement with the Sheik’s speeches about it in Arabic. He also dissects the media and liberal adoration of Islam and the Pope.

Is the national emergency declaration on the border wall a good idea? It depends on who you ask. Dr. Merrill Matthews (www.ipi.org), Resident Scholar with the Institute for Policy Innovation, examines partisan hypocrisy over the execution of emergency declarations and what that may mean for the future.

John’s quote of the week:
“The education system is broken; it’s being run by the people who broke it. But they actively, aggressively oppose any kind of reform which would fix it. Yet these same politicians send their kids to private schools. They don’t want to put themselves in the very system they’re smashing down on everyone else.”

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview John gave last week on Stand Up For The Truth with Mike LeMay on Q90FM in Wisconsin (standupforthetruth.com). John and Mike discuss political correctness in both society and the Church as well as the increase of being a victim and how it has become a badge of honor, and the best ways to get back on track with Christianity in the west.

Greater Clarity

Lack of journalistic standards has shown a light on a bigger problem: intersectionality. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at how the clanging and banging of intersectionality and its attempted adherence to social justice has left real people, like the Covington High School kids, in its wake. Intersectionality and its media acolytes are pointing to the self-destructing foundation of a dying belief system.

Globalism has been on a steady rise for decades, but how has it become popular? Researcher and author Carl Teichrib (www.gameofgods.ca) describes how dynamic speakers tell us we all need to work together, eschewing sovereignty, to save the planet, all while disguising a hatred for Christianity and a love of paganism.

John takes a moment to dissect a speech given by Walter Cronkite in 1999 upon accepting a global governance award. Cronkite advocated for more global rule and less sovereignty. John notes that ousting sovereignty will never fly with many countries so the idea of global governance would never work. That, it seems, is the way it is.

It’s a unique time in the Middle East as several events and issues are coming together. Seth Frantzman (www.jpost.com), Op-Ed Editor for the Jerusalem Post gives us an on the ground perspective from Israel, examining the generational change in leadership of several Middle East nations, how Israel is faring, and the formation of unlikely alliances.

John and Steve wrap up the program this week discussing the epidemic of false assault claims, the media’s response to them, and President Trump’s emergency declaration in regards to border security and the wall.

John’s quote of the week:
“When we go through these three stages – traditional, transitional, and transformational – the middle stage which we are in right now is a big blurry. It’s very hard for people to tell what’s happening, where they’ve come from, and where they’re going. And they don’t realize that major changes are underway.”

In this week’s Extras segment, John is still under the weather so we are charging up the way back machine again and playing an interview from 2014 with Os Guinness. He and John discuss Christianity and how it always provides answers, even during times of trouble, and has always proved wrong those who think it dead.

Trump Derangement Syndrome

Login to access this full program.


180004 01/27/2018

A year into President Trump’s tenure, there are accomplishments to be found amidst the media falderal. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the economic anemia of President Obama’s eight years compared to the boom we have seen since Donald Trump took office. There are many accomplishments for our current president and, despite the leftwing media handwringing, some of those successes are hard to miss.

FISA database violations, meetings with sketchy Russians, an unverified dossier, illegal surveillance. With information coming to light every day of the plot to destroy Donald Trump, how do we make sense of it all? John and producer Steve go behind the scenes with how the Obama administration stretched, and perhaps broke, the law to spy on Donald Trump. Could this be what’s included in the new explosive House Intelligence memo?

After a brief examination of President Trump’s comments on the Palestinians from Davos, Switzerland, we welcome to the program Thomas Lifson (www.americanthinker.com), Editor and Founder of American Thinker, who discusses the four stages of Trump Derangement Syndrome and shows how censorship online and media bias seem to be the leading symptoms.

John’s quote of the week:
What’s important to recognize is that you have a businessman and not a politician cleaning things up so the economy can function again. He spent quite a bit of time in his first year undoing the tangled mess that Mr. Obama created in regulations and executive orders. So while the media are focused on touchy feely things such as identity politics, there really is a major rework underway.

In this week’s Section 6, John discusses President Trump’s foreign policy as well as his negotiation skills, the case of a Spokane firefighter who was terminated for expressing his Christian beliefs, and the criteria that make up fake news. In addition, we play John’s appearance this week on KYMS radio talking about Christian persecution, multiculturalism, the Middle East, and current events.

Iran So Far Away

Login to access this full program.


180003 01/20/2018

Comments from a closed door meeting were all the rage in the news this week. But is it really important? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the underlying issues inside of – shall we say – outhouse countries and the importance of assimilation for those who immigrate here. Why are the media spending so much time dissecting comments and ignoring the real issue of what’s happening in these countries?

In our clip of the week, Dr. Ze’ev Maghen, Chair of Middle Eastern History at Bar-Ilan University in Israel, speaks about the Iran protest as well as Sunnis and Shias in Iran and the Muslim world.

Since the media won’t cover the Iranian protests, we’ll talk with someone who will. Ken Timmerman (www.iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran joins us to discuss how these protests are different from those in 1979 and 2009 and why the powers that be in the West seem to favor the regime.

Did conservative social media sites have an impact on the 2016 election? John Hawkins (www.rightwingnews.com), head of Right Wing News online, believes they did and now the social media giants are doing all they can to ban or otherwise impede the free speech and outreach of conservative accounts and pages.

Jesus said that Christians would not be popular with culture, but progressives within the church are trying to move Christian thought toward popularity. Author and retired cold-case homicide detective J. Warner Wallace (www.casemakersacademy.com) advocates for stronger teaching of traditional Biblical principles and preparing our youth to defend their faith in secular society and in the church.

Finally, John takes a look at the history of fake news and how we arrived at the somewhat dysfunctional mainstream press we have today. There is a war on freedom of speech and we are all – media and consumers alike – fighters in that war.

John’s quote of the week:
Your religious worldview base will establish your ethics and your morals, which establishes what you view in terms of law, in terms of economics, and in terms of society. You can’t separate these things out – they are all one.

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at globalist history and the tactics they use, which explains their hatred toward Donald Trump who fights against them. He goes on to discuss the change in global temperatures away from heating and how the alarmists are pushing us in the wrong direction. Minority unemployment is down – how much of that is attributable to the President? Finally, John examines Christian persecution and no-go zones in Sweden.
