Currencies: Endgame

Login to access this full program.

Much news happening around the world so we will skip the boralogue and jump right in with our first guest, author and journalist James Gorrie (www.theepochtimes.com). He and John discuss the economic realities in China, including the effect of U.S. tariffs and the likelihood that China will collapse just as the Soviet Union did.

We should also look at our economy, especially in light of recent recession warning signs. Jason Pye (www.freedomworks.org), Vice President for Legislative Affairs at FreedomWorks, analyzes our out of control spending and national debt, as well as the endgame of our currency. If we don’t have a serious conversation and take steps to regain economic control, we may not recover from the next crash.

After John covers healthcare and climate change issues, we welcome to the program Brian Wang (www.nextbigfuture.com), Chief Blogger at Next Big Future, who examines upper atmosphere high resolution surveillance, its constant tracking of every person, and the possible future implications of that technology.

John’s quote of the week:
Currencies which are not backed by anything tend to have a 200 to 250 year life cycle because governments and central banks cannot resist inflating them. Once the politicos run out of available taxation, they invisibly begin picking our pockets by inflating the currency. And of course that just destroys it.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play a Steel interview from October 2011 with Dr. Darryl Hart of Hillsdale College about how the marriage between evangelicalism and conservatism may be coming to an end. Since we’ve covered economics quite a bit this week, a flashback on politics and religion will nicely round out the program. Plus we play a snippet from Producer Steve’s podcast War on Stupid, where he discusses the pros and cons of supporting President Trump as a Christian.

Flip Side

The presidential debates are mercifully over. Voters are disconnected from important issues because candidates seldom talk about it and the media rarely covers it. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at things to come from America’s slow decline from superpower status to the house of cards called the global economy. We are sliding toward a day of reckoning, but take heed. Countries, currencies, and candidates may come and go, but God never changes.

Black Lives Matter claims that police are corrupt and racist, though much of their narrative has been refuted. We explore the flip side this week with John Whitehead (www.rutherford.org), President and Founder of the Rutherford Institute, who analyzes alleged abuses of power within police departments – including forfeiture and structuring laws – and advocates for better training to resolve potentially deadly situations.

Are we witnessing the demise of national sovereignty? Conservative writer Christopher Chantrill (www.usgovernmentspending.com) examines George Soros’s plans, why drives to push utopian societies never seem to succeed, and the rise of nationalist candidates.

Finally we welcome retired safety consultant Don Bradway, who joins John in the studio to discuss his time in northern Idaho and his recent interview with the Washington Post regarding redoubts, the untrue stereotypes of preppers, and his advocacy of preparedness for a national emergency.

John’s quote of the week:
“There was a time when the electorate was much more educated but no longer so. Most are victims of the perpetual current of Kool-Aid gushed by non-stop punditry for the purposes of steering people toward political outcomes.”

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.

Social Justice

Login to access this full program.


160035 08/27/2016

Have we learned anything by watching the news this summer? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at subjects the media and political candidates refuse to talk about, like the future of our economy, the tendency for politicians to raise taxes and regulate business, and the unpleasant choices we’re left with regarding fiscal policy. When those in power choose instead to focus on toxic narratives, we’re left with deadly consequences.

What is social justice and why is it important? We welcome back economist and author Pat Wood (www.technocracy.news) who discusses the history of social justice, redistribution of wealth, and technocracy as the science behind social engineering. When one group wants what another has, social justice becomes nothing more than legalized covetousness.

Social justice, if left unfettered, will likely result in socialism. Luis Fleischman (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Senior Advisor at the Center for Security Policy, analyzes how socialism has affected Venezuela, where power for the elites has become an end unto itself and the people are the ones who suffer.

John’s quote of the week:
“Politicians will not get out of the way and lower the taxes and lower the regulations to get the small businesses going, to get the jobs going, to get to where we need to get going, going.”

We are taking a vacation this week for our intelligence briefing, Section 6, but John will return next week with analysis on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

Not Playing the Game

I’m often told when I try to understand political correctness that I’m injecting logic into a situation that has none. In this week’s boralogue, John points out the logical fallacies behind this week’s grandstanding at the University of Missouri. Contradictions abound, rules change to fit narratives, and, as Saul Alinsky pointed out, the issue is never the issue. We’re being forced to play a game we cannot win. The only solution is not to play.

President Obama rejected the Keystone Pipeline permit this week, handing green activists a victory and dealing the oil industry and Canada a loss. Michael Whatley (www.consumerenergyalliance.org), Executive Vice President for Consumer Energy Alliance, examines how thousands of jobs and dollars will not find their way into our economy, and how Canada is waiting for the political winds to shift in America before revisiting the project.

With geopolitics in upheaval, terrorism running rampant, and a worldwide economy on the brink, what else can go wrong on this planet? Michael Snyder (www.theeconomiccollapseblog.com), publisher of the Economic Collapse blog, joins us to discuss not only volcanoes, earthquakes, and flooding, but also the downturn in the economy. With a perfect storm brewing, could we be witnessing prophecy at work?

Finally this week, we dive into deep waters of real life science fiction with John Herlosky (www.asorcerersapprentice.com), author of the book: A Sorcerer’s Apprentice. He shares his experience with remote viewing and the CIA and points out both the differences and similarities between science and religion.

Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!As always, join us online for our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world as well as the ISIS terror attacks in Paris, France.
