Middle East peace talks begin this weekend in Paris while neither Israel nor any Palestinian group has been invited. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the history of the term Palestinian, who actually occupied the West Bank and Gaza before 1967, and the most likely outcome of the talks: a plan for a two-state solution. How will this affect the area’s future?

A bill was recently signed into law that would establish a government office to disseminate U.S. foreign policy and to combat fake news. In other words, we may soon have an official Ministry of Truth. We welcome back Alex Newman (www.thenewamerican.com), Correspondent for The New American, who points out that certain journalists could be labeled as illegitimate just for disagreeing with the government.

As we air our final show of the Obama administration era, we are taking a look at the president’s legacy. Fox News Strategic Analyst Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (www.foxnews.com) examines the weakened status and poor morale in our military and what Trump can do to improve it. He also analyzes foreign policy issues concerning Russia, China, and Iran.

President Obama has touted his legacy as positive in nearly every respect, however the truth lies far below that. Jeffery Tucker (www.fee.org), Director of Content for the Foundation for Economic Education discusses the president’s poor handling of the economy, including implementing both Obamacare and oppressive business regulations.

Leftists have been operating from the Alinsky playbook for decades, but now President-elect Trump is using those same methods against them. Dr. Tome Borelli (www.conservativereview.com), Contributor at Conservative Review contrasts how Trump is using companies to lobby for tax reform versus how Obama used drug companies to lobby for Obamacare and bigger government.

John’s quote of the week:
“I’m sure people would like to see peace in the Middle East but you have to ask on what terms and at what cost. Given the current biases present in the United Nations against Israel, those are very sobering questions.”

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.

In response to a lawsuit by the FBI, a California judge has ordered Apple Corporation to unlock an iPhone used by Syed Farook, one of the San Bernardino shooters. In this week’s boralogue, John asks if the FBI is granted a backdoor to this cell phone, will it stop there or will they be given unfettered access to spy on all Americans? For the sake of security, we are once again being asked to sacrifice a little bit of liberty.

Diving deeper into the iPhone case, we welcome John McAfee (www.mcafee2016.com), developer of the first commercial anti-virus program and current Libertarian candidate for president, who discusses the FBI’s true motivations and shows us why our government needs to change its perception of hackers and cyber security – before it’s too late.

Occasionally, a story of how God works in a person’s life to inspire and uplift others is too incredible not to share. Richard Peters, retired Seal Team 6 member and head of Armor Up Evangelism, recounts his harrowing experience with spiritual warfare in a Libyan prison and how that led to his current ministry encouraging others in the Lord.

Chinese leaders have maintained a steady campaign of encroachment in the South China Sea, establishing military bases on hastily constructed islands. Todd Crowell (www.thediplomat.com), Japan correspondent for Turkey’s Anadolu news agency, joins us from Tokyo to analyze China’s plan for regional hegemony and gauge reactions from the rest of East Asia.

John’s quote of the week:
“If you destroy the very legal instrument which creates and preserves liberty, what protects you in the flood that follows if you pull it down? The answer is: nothing.”

Persecution of Christians comes from many areas of the world such as Communist nations or Islamic regimes. It is even rearing its ugly head in the West in the form of new laws and restrictions of freedom. In this week’s boralogue, John gives us the five steps that lead to persecution and shows how they are manifested in news stories from China, Great Britain, and the United States. Thank you to all our listeners who donated to help Pakistani Christian Pastor X. He still needs your support. If you would like to help, click the button to donate to Pastor X and his family.

Recently, millions of government employees had their personal online information hacked by cyber terrorists. Soon after, the military announced that their personnel’s health records would be stored online as well. Twila Brase (www.cchfreedom.org), President and Co-Founder of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom, examines the push for a national patient database, reviews the misunderstandings of HIPAA laws, and asks the question, who exactly will have access to our medical information?

President Obama would allow the Social Security Administration to have access to medical information by making sure recipients are up to the task of owning a firearm. Larry Pratt (www.gunowners.org), Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, shows that under the plan, psychiatric diagnoses can affect your eligibility to own a gun. It’s an ultimatum between owning a gun and receiving benefits. With a choice like that, the Constitution is bypassed and the government wins.

It is winner take all as one right is trumped by another in the wake of recent Supreme Court decisions on same sex marriage and eminent domain. Brian Walsh (www.civilrightsresearch.org), President and Founder of the Civil Rights Research Center, discusses the trampling of freedom of religion and shows the correlation between government persecution of Christians and increase in social hostility toward religion. I may not agree with what you say and it turns out I won’t defend your right to say it either!

The bloat of government has gotten out of control, but the Founding Fathers gave us a way to fix the problem. Patrick Murray (www.gopatrickmurray.com), Retired U.S. Army Colonel, reviews Article 5 of the Constitution and reveals a plan underway to convene a Convention of States. Two amendments are proposed: Congressional term limits and a balanced budget.
