Suicide of the West

May peace be upon you – unless you don’t want it to be. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at Mahmoud Abbas’s claim that he is cooperating with the peace process, but in fact the opposite is true. We play speeches by Abbas, Nikki Haley, and the Israeli ambassador to show that there needs to be a peace partner – not someone who refuses to sit at the table and denigrates the other side in his own language.

Logic and reason together with a free flow of ideas and debate should rule the day in society. What’s really happening, however, is quite different. Denis MacEoin (www.gatestoneinstitute.org), Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Gatestone Institute, examines the ideological inconsistencies among groups who, for example, advocate for feminism or gay rights, but who also praise Islam and Sharia law.

The suicide of the West is occurring north of our border as well. Former Canadian military intelligence officer Tom Quiggin (www.gatestoneinstitute.org) joins us to discuss bias at the Canadian Broadcast Corporation, who favors Islamic platforms and denigrates Christian ones. Hypocrisy abounds among politically correct narratives around the Western world.

John’s quote of the week:
There seems to be a hierarchy of violations that makes no sense to any logical person. They will be screaming about someone who won’t bake a wedding cake, and yet they will be absolutely mum about gays being thrown off buildings, hung, attacked, etc. It’s very strange for anyone who wonders what is going on.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss the recent Russian indictments plus John gives a persecution update, including an update on Pastor X. Don’t miss the story about a mother jailed for baptizing her daughter in North Carolina – which launches John into a brief lesson on Church history.

Pitching Deck

In the land of political correctness, up is down, down is up, and we’re all stumbling around on a pitching deck of moral non-absolutes, unsure of what to say or do. In this week’s boralogue, John explores this constantly shifting land where multiculturalism is king, collective rights trump those of the individual, and the one unpardonable sin is to reject the failed scheme of the progressive clergy. In order to get our footing, we need to ridicule this self-contradictory and bankrupt system.

With Europe hovering at the edge of this pitching deck, will the United States have the courage to honestly debate issues that are threatening us? Pete Hoekstra (www.investigativeproject.org), former Republican U.S. Congressman from Michigan, examines the need for honest discussion regardless of cries from the politically correct, and gives an overview of the nuclear relationships between North Korea, Iran, and Syria.

Throughout the Muslim world, the idea that Israel shouldn’t have the right to exist is common. But are evangelical Christians beginning to feel the same way? Tricia Miller (www.camera.org), Senior Research Analyst with CAMERA, explains that theological views and political narratives can mix, leaving evangelicals with a pro-Palestinian mindset when it comes to the state of Israel.

Plummeting oil prices dominated headlines this week. John takes a moment to examine the onset of fracking as an economic phenomenon, and how Saudi Arabia is purposefully bucking market trends. Energy, ideology, and currency all converge geopolitically to explain what’s going on.

Finally, we welcome Sue Ellen Browder, a freelance writer and author of the new book “Subverted,” who recounts her time with Cosmopolitan Magazine in the 1970s and how the sexual revolution, through abortion and the question of choice, hijacked the women’s movement.

John’s quote of the week:

“Multiculturalism must triumph and the constantly changing list of dos and don’ts must trump everything else. Indeed, key civil rights are being slaughtered in this onslaught of death by a thousand qualifications, which always require some elitist hierarchy to tell us what applies at any given moment.”

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 unique look at the power groupings in the Middle East and how they are interacting with each other.

If It Feels Good, Sign Here

Welcome to 2015! We are skipping the boralogue this week. Opening up the show is Cal State Fresno professor and Hoover Institute member Bruce Thornton (www.hoover.org). He tackles the politics of feminism and shows how it has come full circle from the “if it feels good, do it” philosophy of the 1960s to the regulatory thinking of today.

Next up, Tammi Rossman-Benjamin (www.amchainitiative.org), lecturer at the UC Santa Cruz and director of the AMCHA Initiative, discusses the BDS movement (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) against Israel and how it has spawned antisemitism on U.S. campuses.

Finally, we visit with Tom Gallagher (blogs.telegraph.co.uk), professor at the University of Bradford in the UK and author of the new book Europe’s Path to Crisis, who discusses the history of the flawed Euro and the likely economic downfall of Europe.

Section 6, our weekly intelligence news briefing, continues its break, but rest assured, John will return in next week with his unique comments on news stories from around the world.
