Level Playing Field

Login to access this full program.

In observing the law, there is the letter of the law and the spirit of the law. In this week’s boralogue, John observes that in order to keep society intact, we must observe both aspects of the law. Some laws, though, have been corrupted such as civil asset forfeiture, environmental law, and yes even impeachment. Freedoms associated with these laws are threatened because, even though the letter of the law is observed, the spirit of the law is ignored.

Deanna LynnAn often taboo subject not often covered in the media or in politics is that of sex trafficking. Deanna Lynn (www.refugeforwomen.org), author and Affiliate of Refuge for Women, joins us to recount her experience of being lured into the sex trade, how she managed to escape from and rise above it, and how she helps others who have gone through similar experiences.

Ronnie MitchemThe anthem kneeling controversy has somewhat died down, but in its heyday many people who spoke out against the protestors were vilified in the media. Pastor Ronnie Mitchem (www.victoryandpraise.com), Founder and Pastor of Victory & Praise Worship Center in Texas, shares his experience after he kicked two players – both Africa-American – off his football team for kneeling during the anthem.

Tamar SternthalJohn and Producer Steve take a 30,000-foot view of impeachment, leftist narratives surrounding it, and predictions of where it goes from here. Then, John closes out the show with Tamar Sternthal (www.camera.org), Director of the Israel office of the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting, who discusses instances of anti-Semitism in England and the U.S. and the media’s role in it.

John’s quote of the week:
The spirit of the law says that we understand why that law was created. And while we can get around the letter of the law, as a moral people we are self-disciplined and won’t do that. Why? Because we understand that we must observe the spirit of the law in addition to the letter of the law in order to keep the whole system intact.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play a double feature: first we have John’s boralogue from our 2017 Christmas episode. Following that, we play an interview from Christmas 2003 with Dr. Ted Byfield on understanding our Christian history and our current worldview.

A moral equivalency controversy followed President Obama’s comments at the National Prayer Breakfast and many Christians were offended. John analyzes in this week’s boralogue how the comparison given was offensive not because it wasn’t true, but because it was taken out of context. Christianity has moved past its warts. Has Islam?

Rick Moran (www.rightwingnuthouse.com), host of the RINO Hour of Power radio show, joins us first to examine the attempt by a group of UC Irvine students to ban the American flag from inclusive spaces on campus because it may constitute hate speech to those who may be offended.

Next up on the program, Fred Fleitz (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Senior Fellow at the Center for Security Policy and retired U.S. national security veteran, discusses NSA programs to monitor Congressional emails and who oversees the overseers when it comes to the dissemination of information.

Dr. Adam Olscamp (www.northwestspecialty.com), orthopedic surgeon at Northwest Specialty Hospital in north Idaho, explores the growth of medical tourism as Canadians cross the border for better treatment, and touches on where health care is headed in the United States.

Finally we welcome David Skeel (www.trueparadoxblog.com), Professor of Corporate Law at the University of Pennsylvania, who discusses his book True Paradox and how Christianity beautifully explains many of the complexities found in the universe.

Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!
