The Coverup Went Viral

Login to access this full program.

First up this week, we look at the link between China’s Communist Party and the World Health Organization. Claudia Rosett (www.iwf.org), Foreign Policy Fellow for the International Women’s Forum, joins us to examine the coverup by both parties at the onset of the Covid outbreak and at every step since.

Next up, we welcome Jeremy Dys (www.firstliberty.org), Special Counsel for the First Liberty Institute, who dives into the First Amendment, specifically the free exercise of religion clause, how it’s often ignored, and how religion in general is treated more like a virus today than Covid.

Recently, a video featuring a group of doctors speaking about the benefits of hydroxychloroquine was arbitrarily deleted from online sites due to supposed dangerous content. Pat Wood (www.citizensforfreespeech.org), Founder of Citizens for Free Speech, is back with us, to discuss his organization’s experience with censorship and cancel culture.

Dexter Van ZileWe wrap up this week with long-time guest Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA, who looks at the case of a Jewish rabbi who, despite immense fanfare at his hiring, was quietly let go after his support for Israel was discovered. These leftist bullying tactics are spreading from college campuses into the streets and into everyday lives.

Dexter Van ZileA soft layer of anti-semitism surrounds a lot of the cancel culture on campus and within the protests we see playing out every night in America. Today, we welcome back long-time friend of the show Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA. He discusses the case of Rabbi Daniel Lehmann, a Jewish scholar who, despite immense fanfare at his hiring, was quietly let go after his support for Israel was discovered. These leftist bullying tactics are spreading from college campuses into the streets and into everyday lives.

Special Announcement:

In a continuing effort to help relieve listeners under COVID-19 quarantine, we’ve published full-length episodes in our free SPN Podcast Network and mobile app. We encourage you to stay safe throughout this difficult situation and we hope these programs provide insight and encouragement.

 

How has utopian thinking fared during this virus crisis? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at how the utopian ideologies of the European Union are being forced and held down in order to try to make them work. But reality keeps rearing its stubborn head. This crisis has highlighted that bureaucrats will always behave like bureaucrats, but you have to end-run bureaucracy in order to get anything constructive done.

Steve ByasPotpourri show this week – first guest is Steve Byas (www.oklahomaconstitution.com), Professor of History and Government at Randall University in Oklahoma. He examines the possibility of our temporary suspension of freedoms lasting longer than the crisis and whether it will be used as a precedent in the future.

Steven MosherThen we look at the threat from China with Steven Mosher (www.pop.org), President of the Population Research Institute, who discusses the geopolitical danger with China as well as the irony of how those who are politically correct will defend China despite the human rights abuses committed there.

Jason SneadWill this crisis affect state primary elections now or the federal election in November? Jason Snead (www.honestelections.org), Executive Director of the Honest Elections Project, analyzes the postponement process and covers voter ID, suppression, and fraud.

Dexter Van ZileThere are hot spots of religious persecution around the world, but Europe seems to be hotter than most. Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA, shows how both Christians and Jews are being persecuted in Europe and highlights a TV host’s incorrect information on Iran.

Rounding out the program this week, John looks at a variety of topics including political correctness and its tendency to harm us, how statistics inform decisions which inform statistics, and the slowly fading narrative of anthropogenic global warming during this pandemic.

John’s quote of the week:
During this time, much of what governments will do will be unconstitutional. We have to be careful that these things do not become prolonged and then permanently embedded. Typically when rights go away, they for some reason just don’t seem to come back. Why? Because rights are a restriction on government.

ChinaOn this week’s extra segment, we play another double feature. First up, Robert Haddock from October 2014 on Chinese economic and military expansion. We then transition to Joshua Philipp from July 2016 on the China threat, including espionage and disinformation. These interview are interesting for their time and even more so now in the light of the coronavirus threat that originated in China.

Semper Veritas: Always the Truth

Login to access this full program.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Christine Douglass-WilliamsWe will forego the boralogue this week and jump right in with Christine Douglass-Williams (www.frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine, who describes her trip to the International Conference on Christian Persecution in Budapest, Hungary last month. She looks at Hungary’s efforts to establish itself as a Christian nation and examines the truth, not the PC narrative, surrounding Islam and the persecution of not only Christians, but also reformer Muslims.

Dexter Van ZileAnti-semitism exists in various subsets of society, including among famous people in the media. Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst at CAMERA, reveals how one famous radio host has seemingly come out against Jewish concerns. He also discusses the various sources for anti-semitism, both on the right and the left.

Burt Yellin Roeh IsraelWe finish out the program this week playing a sermon given by Rabbi Burt Yellin of the Messianic Jewish church Roeh Israel (www.roehisrael.org) in Denver, Colorado earlier this month. He gives examples of leaders who have done great things but were also absolute scoundrels. He also shows the importance of answering God’s call in your life.

John’s quote of the week:
The real salvation in an age of postmodernism, when the lack of belief in truth has led to a lack of belief in the stability of all our systems and moral values, is always to stand on the truth. Remember ‘semper veritas’ – always the truth.

The Extras Segment is taking a two-week hiatus due to the holidays but it will return with perfect 2020 vision in the New Year!

Aedificare Murum: Build the Wall

Login to access this full program.

With all the partisan bickering that seems to clog our national media these days, what are the things we really need to be concerned about? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at some storm waves on the horizon, including a political blowback following the Mueller report fiasco, an impending downturn in the economy, and the biggest battle for the future of this country: fighting to retain our freedom of speech.

Freedom of conscience and religion is being attacked north of our border. Independent researcher and author Michael Wagner (www.educationunlimited.ca) joins us from Canada to discuss how, if doctors in Ontario have a moral objection to abortion, they don’t have to perform it but they are required to give the patient a referral for it. If they refuse, they could face substantial penalties.

We have heard the chant, “Build the wall!” but why do we need one? Spencer Morrison (www.nationaleconomicseditorial.com), Founder and Editor-in-Chief of National Economics Editorial, shares the story of Hadrian’s Wall, built by the Roman Empire in what is now modern-day England, and gives examples of how walls protect the people and culture of a nation.

Finally this week, we invite back to the program Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA, who follows up his analysis of the Ground Truth Project and how the group has maligned both evangelicals and Zionists in favor of a politically correct narrative.

John’s quote of the week:
If you look at the argument that the state is going to be the determiner of what is moral and immoral, then we never would have abolished slavery. The state had once said that slavery was a legal thing so by today’s logic, people shouldn’t have argued against it. With this new worldview shift, everything has been flipped on its head.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play John’s latest appearance on KYMS, a local north Idaho radio station. After waxing nostalgic about radio days of yore, John goes on to discuss the media’s coverage of religion, immigration into the U.S., the latest on the Middle East peace plan, and gives a persecuted church update, focusing largely on Africa.
