Economics is one leg of the geopolitical stool. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at financial indicators and raises a red flag watch on our economy. David McAlvany and Kevin Orrick from McAlvany Weekly Commentary discuss how we are overdue for a recession, and though the economy continues to hum along, indicators are pointing to a likely recession in 2020. How will it affect the election? We’ll have to wait and see.

Myron MagnetIn our continuing series on the Constitution and the founding freedoms of America, we welcome to the program Myron Magnet (www.city-journal.org), Editor-at-Large at City Journal, who examines Clarence Thomas’ efforts in establishing reform in the U.S. judiciary, and looks at the battle between originalists and those who believe in a living, breathing document in interpreting the Constitution. Read Myron Magnet’s Imprimis article ‘Clarence Thomas and the Lost Constitution‘ at Hillsdale College.

Ken TimmermanIt’s time for a Middle East Update and who better to give it than Ken Timmerman (www.iran.org), President of Foundation for Democracy in Iran? He discusses the geopolitical link between Syria, Iran, and Israel as well as tense NATO allies Turkey and the U.S. Is the stage being set for an end times battle against Israel?

John and Producer Steve round out the show covering the Deep State and the latest impeachment effort. Reform is needed and government should be pared down. The President has control of foreign policy, but those in Congress and the Deep State who disagree with that policy are attempting to oust the President via impeachment.

John’s quote of the week:
Economically, are we healthy or are we not? Yes, the economy is buzzing along, but if you look at the underlying fundamentals, there are serious structural problems with the global financial system. It, like our government, is going to have to be reformed at some point.

KYMSIn this week’s Extras segment, we play John’s most recent appearance on KYMS, a local north Idaho radio station, and his monthly martyred church update. He and host Lee Lancaster discuss other topics, including freedom of speech, who gets to determine what hate speech is, and the tendency to compromise parts of the Constitution. They also look at important tidbits such as where on the globe Burkina Faso is located!

Monopoly is Not a Game

Never despise the day of small things because small things are telling us where we are headed. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at several stories including intersectionality problems in the Netherlands, Justin Trudeau’s brown face controversy, and believe it or not, a seminary where prayers are offered to plants. Everyone makes moral pronouncements, but they come from a pitching deck of relativistic ideas and will not work. Reform, therefore, is needed.

A plan has been afoot for more than 70 years to indoctrinate children in schools in order to push the global government narrative. Alex Newman (www.thenewamerican.com), Foreign Correspondent for The New American, shows us that parents can’t compete with the intense indoctrination and gives some alternatives to public education.

John takes a moment to focus on our economy, playing a segment from the McAlvany Weekly Commentary. David McAlvany and Kevin Orrick of International Collectors Associates (www.mcalvanyica.com) discuss negative interest rates and their effect on central banks and the economy.

With social media companies virtually controlling our entire online experience, are users forced to agree with them just to have a voice? Data Network Architect Russ White (www.mindmatters.ai) is back with us to examine the physical infrastructure of the internet and how social media companies have monopolized the entire internet, even news sources.

John’s quote of the week:
The elites were talking about world government long before people began yelling about conspiracy theories. The problem was changing the minds of the people. How would you do that? You would use the public education system.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play John’s interview with Spokane radio legend Tom Read on his program It Seems To Me. Tom and John discuss journalistic standards and how mainstream media today are not living up to them. Included in that are examples of media bias such as slanting headlines and manipulating interviews to only include what supports their narrative.

Salvaging Existing Freedoms

180010 03/10/2018

The truth is the truth, but if you have your truth and I have mine, what happens when those truths collide? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the need in our society for an absolute truth anchor point upon which you can base your ideals and worldviews. Those that believe in relative truth will also believe absolutely that someone else’s truth is false when confronted with it. This explains why society is so divided today – there is no anchor.

Europe’s traditional culture is slowly eroding away and those in power are doing nothing to stop it. UK media personality and columnist Katie Hopkins (www.hopkinsworld.com) examines the influx of migrants who are refusing to assimilate to their new country’s values and customs and how some are now pushing back, fighting to salvage their disappearing freedoms.

John plays a clip from David McAlvany on the upcoming trouble in the financial markets. Then John and Producer Steve play a rousing clip on political civility from Virginia congressman Nick Freitas and look at the illogical responses to it.

Freedom of speech is one that the Constitution guarantees, but some college students aren’t experiencing that. Nicole Neily (www.speechfirst.org), President of Speech First, describes how her new organization is advocating for students whose rights are being violated and warns those in power that students are waking up and are no longer willing to take it.

John’s quote of the week:
What guarantees freedom in keeping government under control? The first one is the First Amendment. That’s where we’re guaranteed the freedom of speech and of religion and of the press. Vibrant attestations to what is going on and truth are essential to keeping scoundrels from getting away with your government. The Founding Fathers understood that – you had to be able to speak.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve continue their discussion of Nicholas Freitas’s speech and the reaction to it. John then goes on to cover the impending Trump-Kim meeting, the collision of worldviews and religions in Europe, and the stubborn doubling down on failing ideas by progressives. He finishes up with the consolidation of power in China and the free flow of global information in the future.

Unusual Alliances

160041 10/08/2016

Campaigning for his wife this week, Bill Clinton seemed to disparage Obamacare. Was it a faux pas or a deliberate move? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the lies surrounding Obamacare and reminds us that the goal from the beginning was to establish a government-run single payer health care system. Politicians will once again offer to solve the problem that they caused in the first place.

Why would Black Lives Matter align with anti-Semitic groups, or LGBT associations defend the actions of Muslims? Philip Carl Salzman (www.mcgill.ca), Professor at McGill University in Quebec, Canada, discusses intersectionality among “oppressed” groups, multiculturalism versus dissent, and Marxism in academia.

The reality behind taxes, the economy and job numbers is far different than what you’re hearing from either presidential candidate during the debates. David McAlvany (www.mcalvany.com), President and CEO of McAlvany Financial Group, reveals the truth and shows that what you are seeing in the stock market today is nothing but an illusion.

John’s quote of the week:
“Politicians will tell you they feel your pain even when it is they who are causing much of your pain by the rotten policies they’ve implemented. They will say, ‘don’t you care about the poor,’ but it’s the poor who get beaten up the worst when everything is done.”

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.

When Reality Becomes Real

Login to access this full program.

 

120020 05/19/2012

When reality sets in, politicians panic, because that’s when politics-as-usual disintegrates in the face of an onrushing crisis.

During the endgame of inflationary policy, revenues fall and governments respond by pushing tax rates to the firewall, causing revenues to plummet even further; a lesson governments like the state of California never seem to learn. Tom Giovanetti from the Institute for Policy Innovation (www.ipi.org) explains why soak-the-rich schemes always fail, while impoverishing the middle class at the same time.

Then we’ll pursue the current monetary situation in Europe with David McAlvany from the McAlvany Weekly Commentary (www.mcalvany.com).

Naomi Schaefer Riley was canned off the “Chronicle of Higher Education” blog after she made politically incorrect statements about race studies programs at universities. Academia is becoming the most closed-minded environment in the western world. We’ll discuss the implications of this as well as Naomi’s subsequent op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal entitled, “The Academic Mob Rules.”

We’ve often spoken how the consensus process (Delphi Technique) involves the use of change agent facilitators. When the process starts, the outcome is predetermined, but the participants don’t know that. Mesa County, Colorado, just discovered this the hard way. We’ll run clips from a Colorado radio program to demonstrate the point.

John’s boralogue points out that there really was never any doubt where everything would wind up once the Euro crisis began, placing us at the leading edge of much bigger storms to come. Once on a tax-inflate-spend money train, governments can’t get off the wild ride until the train finally goes off a trestle. Today we’ll give you a road map of the exciting journey upon which we find ourselves.
