With silly season in full swing, it is important to examine our past and determine if our country is walking down a familiar path today. In this week’s boralogue, John looks back to the stock market crash in 1929 and our government’s unhelpful reaction to it. What lessons can we learn from this? More importantly, with politicians offering free goodies and decrying capitalism, are we ready to listen?

We’re taking a whirlwind tour of the globe this week beginning in Sweden, where we invite Nima Gholam Ali Pour (www.situationmalmo.nu), Vice Chairman of Perspectives on Israel, to analyze the Palestinian-friendly Kairos document and how it and the Swedish media are fomenting a growing anti-Israel movement in that country.

Next we travel to the Orient with columnist and East Asia expert Gordon Chang (www.gordonchang.com) who discusses not only China’s crumbling economy and military expansion but also the dangers of North Korean missile testing. Could the United States be vulnerable?

John takes some time to discuss U.S. interest rates and the markets, Russia’s involvement with Ukraine and Syria, and the persecution of Christians by ISIS-controlled countries in the Middle East.

We end our global tour back in Europe where David Goldman (www.reorientgroup.com), Managing Director at Reorient Group, studies Germany’s identity crisis in the wake of refugee violence and shows that their reaction to the emergency is related to their past. Could an identity crisis also be at the heart of Islam in the modern world, influencing violent incidents?

John’s quote of the week:
“Knowing who you are is important to functioning in the world especially in terms of a worldview. When you forget who you are – as a country, as a person, as an organization – then you typically get into trouble when you encounter other groups that don’t have that problem.”

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.

Have We Learned?

When a tragedy happens, it’s best to get at the truth behind it and work to prevent a re occurrence. In this week’s boralogue, John ties together numerous stories from the past few decades and shows that to get at that truth you need to ask the hard questions. Time and again, answers and effective solutions are thwarted by the politically correct mantra of the day. We must learn from history or we are doomed to repeat it.

This week marks the 14th anniversary of the September 11 attacks and we remember the victims and the heroes who died that awful day and thank them for their sacrifice. A decade and a half later, are we making the same political errors we made prior to 9/11? The question we have to ask is: have we learned from our mistakes? Joining us this week to answer these questions are Michael Cutler (www.michaelcutler.net), Retired Special Agent with the former Immigration and Naturalization Services, and Dan Gordon (www.dayofthedeadlibertyedition.com), Captain in the Israeli Defense Forces.

With another terror attack looming on the horizon, is the United States doing all it can to prevent this from happening? We learn that it may be déjà vu all over again as corruption has increased between Mexican cartel members and border agents, Iran has sleeper cells ready to attack at a moment’s notice, and U.S. immigration policies have kowtowed to political correctness, allowing thousands to cross our borders with nothing more than a rubber stamp of approval. We cannot afford to ignore security measures proposed after 2001.

For the past few weeks, we have highlighted the need for ordinary people to do extraordinary things. This week, we welcome Pastor Dave Witt (www.spiritofmartyrdom.com), Founder of Spirit of Martyrdom Ministries, who explains the difference between Christian and Islamic martyrs and shows that he is just one man making a difference for Christ in this world. We can do it too.

Our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing returns this week featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week, John takes a closer look at the global impact of China’s economy.
