Why did our freedom revolution in the U.S. and by extension the UK, work but the revolution in France fail? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the tale of two revolutions and how ours has worked and why it still succeeds. Some of the things that caused the other revolution to ultimately fail, however, are starting to crop up here and threaten the continued success of our great experiment. It is up to us to keep that from happening.

Brandon WeichertDid the coronavirus originate with tainted food or is there a more sinister backstory? Joining us is Brandon Weichert (www.weichertreport.com), Manager of the Weichert Report, who points out that there is a military-run virology lab in Wuhan, China that may or may not be a bio-weapons lab. He covers China’s tactics with intellectual property theft and coveting of scientists from around the world, both of which could have led to this coronavirus crisis.

Dr. Michael BuslerHow has the coronavirus affected the stock markets, both here and around the world? Dr. Michael Busler (www.stockton.edu), Professor of Finance at Stockton University, joins us to discuss the psychology of markets and his views on how much of an impact the virus will make on global economics.

As a federal bureaucrat, do you have loyalty to your agency and your director, or do you have loyalty to the Constitution? We welcome to the program retired FBI Special Agent David Baldovin (www.theunitedwest.org), who examines the need for reform in government agencies and the inevitable circling of the wagons when one of their own is on the hook for corruption. Fighting the good fight shows who and what you are loyal to.

John’s quote of the week:
Why, if we are such a terrible country (as we have been lectured about over the last thirty or forty years), do thousands and thousands of people want to come here? Why isn’t it so good where they are? This is a glaring contradiction in what the media are preaching at us.

On this week’s extra segment, we play an interview from June 2002 with the now late Christopher Story about Germany’s attempt to dominate the EU and competition with Russia to build a new soviet reaching from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

Realpolitik: Middle East Edition

Login to access this full program.

In literature, narratives are often fiction. In both the mainstream media and politics, narratives exhibit the same fictitious nature. In this week’s boralogue, John gives several examples of how the media and politicos have failed to tell the truth lately, including with the gun rights rally in Virginia, with anthropogenic global warming, and with Attorney General William Barr. It turns out you can make this stuff up – and it shows us their true intentions.

Manda ErvinIran is a hot topic in the news but one aspect not covered by the media is how women have been treated there. Manda Zand Ervin (www.allianceofiranianwomen.org), Founder and President of the Alliance of Iranian Women, joins us to recount how Iranian women, who were being oppressed by the mullahs, established a secret underground network in order to survive. Much of this information can be found in her new book, The Ladies’ Secret Society of Iran.

It’s time for a Middle East geopolitical update so we welcome an expert on the subject, Seth Frantzman (www.sethfrantzman.com), Middle East Affairs Analyst at the Jerusalem Post. He examines a deal between Turkey and Russia to partition Libya, an oil pipeline from the region to Eastern Europe, and the interactions between Turkey, Syria, and the Kurds.

John and Producer Steve spend a few moments dissecting an opinion piece from the Harvard Law Review that advocates for end-running the Constitution in an attempt to add amendments that would not only give permanent legislative power to liberals but would also ultimately endanger the Republic itself.

John finishes out the show this week with a news story roundup, relating stories from around the world. Included are the impending Brexit, a disastrous new economic plan in Spain, trouble in China regarding the Catholic Church, and several examples of Christian persecution.

John’s quote of the week:
If the people cannot operate on the basis of their conscience and their convicted values and beliefs, what will act as a judge upon the government when the government itself goes corrupt? And governments, believe me, will go corrupt.

On this week’s extra segment, it’s a quadruple feature as we play four interviews from 2014, 2015, and 2016 with Iraqi Christian Relief Council President Juliana Taimoorazy. She recounts the problems and tragedies involving Christians in Iraq from ISIS’s persecution to their troubles with the UN regarding refugee status. With Iraq in the news lately, it’s important to remember those who are suffering for their faith there (and around the world).

Marxist Oil and Christian Water

Login to access this full program.

The traditional Western worldview is battling with the new socialist worldview and somehow truth is lost in the chaos. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the importance of truth over narrative. Those who say America is a horrible place willfully ignore the much worse conditions in other countries. Antifa claims to have tolerance but exhibits none of it. Always look at what is real, what is actually happening; not what others tell you is true to further their narrative.

Marxist ideologies are mixing with Christian worldviews. How did we get to this point? Paul Kengor (www.faithandfreedom.com), Chief Academic Fellow at the Institute for Faith and Freedom, examines both worldviews, gives examples of how atrocious Marxism has been, and asserts that it has no place in true Christianity.

The second round of elections in Israel has come and gone and still there is no clear winner. Avi Lipkin (www.avilipkin.net), author and founder of the new Bible Bloc Party in Israel, explains how Israeli elections work including the need for a majority coalition, and touches on geopolitics in the Middle East.

Education in America and the West has been co-opted by the United Nations. Alex Newman (www.thenewamerican.com), Foreign Correspondent for The New American, returns to discuss the World Core Curriculum – essentially a global Common Core – and how the newly named rules-based world order is manipulating children.

John’s quote of the week:
When it comes to tolerance, we have to ask why people who are promoting tolerance wear masks and then block the rights intolerantly of other people – especially of elderly women trying to cross the street with a walker to hear an address about free speech. Theoretically they are exercising free speech, but they don’t want anybody else to exercise it.”

In this week’s Extras segment, we play John’s latest interview on local radio station KYMS. John and host Lee Lancaster discuss persecution in Communist China as well as other areas, the dysfunction surrounding Brexit, and the dishonest mainstream media.

Re-engineering Language

Login to access this full program.

If you don’t live in the United Kingdom, you may not be well-versed on the Brexit situation, which has once again popped up in the news. In this week’s boralogue, John gives a backgrounder on Brexit, from its sketchy origins to the recent inability of Prime Minister May to engineer a deal to current Prime Minister Johnson’s troubles this past week. There are long rolling agendas afoot that ultimately thwart the will of the people and cater to the globalists.

Social justice warriors have begun changing the meaning of certain words in an attempt to change culture. Philip Carl Salzman (www.mindingthecampus.org), Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at McGill University, joins us to discuss how SJWs are in fact re-engineering language. It lasts from early education into universities to the point where people have begun self-censoring just to be left alone.

Finally we welcome back to the program author and Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim (www.raymondibrahim.com) who examines a number of topics including Coptic Christian persecution in Egypt, Islamic terrorists at our southern border, the different perceptions of moderate and radical Muslims, and the political correctness that keeps us from getting at the truth.

John’s quote of the week:
If left to its own devices, the social justice argument and everything as it is framed would collapse from its own logical inconsistency and its deviation from language. The only thing that keeps it going is brute force.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play John’s latest appearance on Stand Up For The Truth on Q90FM out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. There are a lot of distractions keeping us from focusing on God – money, social media, politics, entertainment. It’s difficult, but we are to love the Lord with all our hearts and minds. John takes a look at several of society’s distractions.

It seems human rights are back in the news after Alabama passed an abortion restriction law. In this week’s boralogue, John reminds us of past cases where new rights were established to suit an ideology. After Alabama passed their law, we are seeing the concept of what goes around comes around. Creating a right that ultimately forces someone else to violate their beliefs is totalitarian and an indicator of the new postmodern world we live in.

Potpourri week on Steel. First up, we speak with Shahram Hadian (www.tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth in Love Project, about the basics of Ramadan and why, during those 30 days, there is an uptick in violence and jihad.

Next up, we explore the Law of the Sea Treaty with Alex Newman (www.thenewamerican.com), Foreign Correspondent with The New American. If it is ratified, the UN would have independent taxing power under this law which is a frightening thought.

What is happening in the Middle East? We welcome David Rubin (www.shilohisraelchildren.org), Founder and President of the Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund, who discusses geopolitics in the Middle East including Iran’s nuclear program.

Finishing out the program this week, John takes a look at Brexit and the battle of worldviews in Europe and America. Producer Steve joins in later to discuss various political issues like President Trump’s tax returns, controversial comments by a member of the House, and potentially un-Constitutional legislation in California.

John’s quote of the week:
In Europe, they’re shutting people down by making it a crime to say certain things. Here in America, we name it and shame it, and it’s having an effect; it’s costing people. But here they can’t quite prohibit it, though social media is contributing to it.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play a Steel on Steel interview from July 2017 with Bill Warner. Since the month of Ramadan has begun in the Islamic faith, it is important we better understand aspects of Islam. Topics covered include the basics of Islam, how political correctness is willfully blinding us to certain realities, and how our freedoms in this country would disappear under sharia law.
