There are a lot of issues circulating in the world right now and very few of them are accurately reported on. In this week’s boralogue, John jumps from issue to issue, covering the possible halting of the Fed’s rate raising cycle, how support for Mahmoud Abbas is down and support for Israel is up, and the agreement between the Vatican and communist China that seems a little too familiar. Worldviews can somehow be both popular and dysfunctional at the same time.

From the Declaration of Independence to the Constitution, this country was founded on unity, but today it seems to be all about division. We welcome back author and historian Daniel Mallock (www.newenglishreview.org) to discuss the Alinsky tactics of division and constant friction that lead to chaos and loss of freedom. It’s up to us to identify these threats and push back on them.

Europe has also come a long way ideologically, though they are further down the road to division. Writer and retired oncologist David Stolinsky (www.stolinsky.com) analyzes the differences in Europe, both past and present and shows how leftist ideologies are gaining a foothold in America in his home state of California.

The term ‘navigable’ has changed dramatically over the past 10 years. Anthony Francois (www.pacificlegal.org), Senior Attorney with Pacific Legal Foundation, examines how the EPA has deemed tiny draining ditches on private property as navigable and how the Clean Water Act has gone from fighting pollution to becoming a land grab for the government.

John’s quote of the week:
Governments always act in their own best interest, not necessarily in the interests of the people. Because of that, they are most likely to define out of existence those things that would criticize the government itself. Lo and behold, this is exactly what we find happening in Europe.”

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at Russia’s recent skirmish with Ukrainian ships off the Black Sea, failing worldviews in Europe, a mysterious wave-like rumble around the world, as well as other science and legal news stories.

Much like Yellowstone of late, America’s economic arena is experiencing a swarm of quakes that serve as a warning to us all. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at what these quakes mean and where we are heading. Between the fake news camped out in Russia collusion land and the Fed stating that all is well, you would think our economy’s future is just fine. Tough times are ahead, but God will guide each of us through it.

In late June, a van plowed into a group of Muslims outside of a London mosque, stirring up terms like ‘payback’ and ‘white jihad.’ Dr. Dawn Perlmutter (www.symbolintelligence.com), Director of Symbol Intelligence Group, examines the roots of white jihad and the growing resentment that fuels it. White jihad is a problem, but it hasn’t yet risen to the horrific levels of its Islamic counterpart.

The former administration’s EPA redefined the word ‘navigable’ in the Waters of the U.S. Act, thereby expanding its jurisdiction. Dr. Bonner Cohen (www.nationalcenter.org), Senior Fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research, discusses the immense bureaucratic power of the EPA and the abuses stemming from it, and praises President Trump for rolling back some of that power.

You cannot defend the truth if you do not know the truth. Mike LeMay (www.standupforthetruth.com), General Manager of Q90 FM Radio in Wisconsin, shows the steady decline of Christian thought in the West and the erosion of moral standards taught in schools and at church.

Finally, we look at Christian persecution around the world with Paula Kweskin (www.faithkeepersmovie.com), Producer of Clarion Project’s film Faithkeepers. She points out that media is largely silent on Christian persecution but there are ways you and I can help.

John’s quote of the week:
We are at the endgame of all excessive taxation and inflation because they promise so many goodies to so many people that they can’t stop paying it. Once you’re on this deep debt train, you can’t get off until the train goes violently off the rails. This is the point where governments become rapacious and start taxing and seizing anything they possibly can just to keep the game going.”

This week on Section 6, John covers inflation in the U.S. economy, ever failing climate predictions, Catholics vs Evangelicals, and the hierarchy of multicultural classes.

What is truth? In this week’s boralogue, Johns examines church members who are claiming to be Christians but don’t believe in Christ and atheist ministers who still want to lead their church congregations. Why be part of a belief system you don’t believe in? There is such a thing as absolute truth, even for those who claim there isn’t. If you believe in truth, it makes a demand upon you that you live according to that truth. But politicians and many in the church today adhere to a politically correct version of reality that stands in opposition to actual truth. One day they will come to realize — as all of us will — that truth is reality and it always wins out.

We continue our thread this week highlighting Christian persecution and welcome to the program Nasir Bhatti (www.pakistanchristiancongress.org), President of the Pakistan Christian Congress. He examines the delays that Christians encounter in receiving refugee status from the United Nations and touches on the immigration problems facing Europe.

“The nine most terrifying words in the English language,” former President Ronald Reagan once said, “are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’ “One might urge the government to look up the word ‘help’ in the dictionary. The EPA, an element of said government, has launched a campaign to control every drop of water in the United States, even at the expense of property rights and it’s causing a retain in many states.

Seton Motley (www.lessgovernment.org), President of Less Government and hydrologist Dr. Jay Lehr (www.heartland.org), Science Director at the Heartland Institute, discuss the agency’s overreach and regulations and propose a plan to phase out federal control in favor of state responsibility. Can it be implemented or will it slowly drown in a sea of bureaucracy?

John finishes up with a behind the scenes look at Roman Catholicism, papal infallibility, and the weight of authority behind papal teaching and how that is affecting geopolitics.

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. This week, John takes a look at capitalism and the refugee crisis in Europe.

Virtually all government agencies are bogged down with myriad regulations and reform is needed. In this week’s boralogue, John points out that despite dumping mining waste chemicals into Colorado’s Animas River, the EPA continues their quest to control all water in the United States, regardless of homeowners’ property rights. Accountability is needed, demonization of average citizens should cease, and justice should be administered fairly. American citizens should not be looked at as the enemy. Our rights are slowly eroding away, and when they vanish, it will be quite some time before we get them back.

We continue our thread this week on the thoughts and actions of Pope Francis with a roundtable discussion on papal advisor Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Madariaga. Rejoining the program are John Zmirak (www.saveourcentury.com), senior editor at TheStream.org, and Jorge Velarde Rosso (www.acton.org), senior researcher at the Acton Institute in Argentina. Cardinal Madariaga has gone on record with anti-Semitic beliefs, accusing Jews of conspiracies against the church, and has advised the Pope that big government can solve the problems of the world that capitalism failed to. With the Pope speaking to the U.N. General Assembly in late September, will the concept of sustainable development take hold and attempt to establish a one world government?

In the early 21st century, the West associates yoga with posture, flexibility, and exercise. Michael Austin (www.publishthegoodnews.com), founder of the Christian communications ministry Publish the Good News, and a former yoga teacher, examines the history and function of yoga from its religious role in Hinduism to its completely different Westernized version. Is it harmless or a plan to introduce pantheism to a Christian nation?

The United States dropped two atomic bombs on Japan 70 years ago this month. Retired MIT Physics Professor Hale Bradt (www.wilburswar.com), is author of the Wilbur’s War trilogy, a tale of the Pacific Theater during WWII culled from letters written by his father, a U.S. soldier. He discusses the moral controversy of dropping the bombs and contends that in doing so, we may have prevented a far great number of casualties that would have died during the invasion of Japan.

Spending the Week in Court

120013 03/31/2012

The whole country has been watching the Supreme Court’s hearings on Obamacare, but there were other important Supreme Court rulings this week that were virtually ignored by the press.

First up is attorney James Mason from Home School Legal Defense (www.hslda.org). The Supreme Court declined to hear a case involving a homeschool family where a social worker forced entry into their home on minimal probable cause.

Then constitutional attorney Jonathan Emord (www.restoretherepublic.co) examines the Supreme Court’s favorable decision in the case of the Sackett family in Priest Lake, Idaho. The Sacketts were building a house on property they purchased when the EPA arbitrarily declared their property a wetland, demanded they dismantle the construction, cease use of the property and fined them $37,000 a day until they complied with no venue for an appeals hearing. Unfortunately this is not an isolated case.

The Pope was in Cuba last week. Why does the world media have a fetish about mass murderer Che Guevara, Castro’s henchman? Yale Professor Carlos Eire grew up in the same Cuban neighborhood as Che. He is author of the “Waiting for Snow in Havana,” which won the National Book Award in 2003.

John’s boralogue answers critical emails regarding the debate with Ronald Sider on last week’s show.
