In October, French President Emmanuel Macron announced strict measures to crack down on what he called ‘radical Islam.’ But what is his definition of that and what are his measures? Mark Durie (markdurie.com), Director of the Institute for Spiritual Awareness, joins us to discuss President Macron’s ineffective plans for these measures and what that will mean for adherents to other religions. If you can’t recognize the truth of a problem, your policies will always fail. And failing policies are symptoms of a failing worldview that is not based in reality.

Media outlets and fact-checking websites are always beholden to a narrative. It makes reporting the facts surrounding an issue impossible. John and Producer Steve look at how both right and left media outlets spin the news to prop up a point of view that only gives you part of the story. ‘Bad’ ideas are dismissed as propaganda so that the media’s agenda can be furthered. But no one is getting the whole story. When media work as social activists instead of journalists, the truth is brushed aside.

Finally this week, we fire up the way back machine to revisit the issue of a constitutional convention – or a Con-Con. We play an interaction between two guests: first from December 1992, Don Fotheringham, an opponent to the Con-Con, and second from June 2016, Jenna Ellis, a proponent of a convention. Don contends that opening the door to a convention would allow malignant actors to later destroy our country. Jenna argues that because there is a specified agenda and a very involved amendment process, it would be all but impossible to hijack.

The Long Emergency II

Login to access this full program.

There is what’s known as a black or white fallacy surrounding this coronavirus pandemic: it’s either no big deal or it’s the end of the world. As usual, the truth lies somewhere in the middle. In this week’s extended boralogue, John covers the facts, not the fiction, behind the disease. He begins by accurately stating the medical truth of the virus and then pivots to the economic impact.

He is then joined by his better half, Carol Loeffler, to further explore how the coronavirus is affecting various countries financially on the global geo-economic chessboard. They then examine the virus’s influence on the oil markets.

James KunstlerWill this black swan event push us into a recession or could it also push us into a long emergency? John welcomes back to the program futurist and author James Kunstler (www.kunstler.com), who discusses the future of oil and shale production in the U.S., where transportation is headed, and the danger when crises like this threaten what we perceive as normality.

Dr. Jenna SilakoskiWe finish off the show with Dr. Jenna Silakoski (www.northidahodpc.com), a physician in North Idaho, who gives a realistic on the ground view of the coronavirus and how she is handling it from a doctor’s perspective.

John’s quote of the week:
In any crisis, the most important thing to remember is God understands and He will provide for us as we go. You can ask Him for wisdom. ‘Father, show me where to go and what I need to do.’ So let’s move on and face this. It’s a challenge. But God is always up to challenges.

On this week’s extra segment, we play John’s latest guest appearance on local radio station KYMS with host Lee Lancaster. In addition to giving a martyred church update, John discusses with Lee the coronavirus (as well as an interesting way to keep from getting it) and defending your faith in times of trouble.
