Merry Christmas everyone! We put aside a crazy, tumultuous year and celebrate Christmas in this week’s boralogue. John shows that even though there’s little hope in the things of this world and forces align to keep us divided, we do have hope in Christ. Things of the earth have no eternal value; our true value is found in Jesus. So when we come together this Christmas with family and friends, let’s love each other and engage in civil conversation.

We have predicted that the U.S. is headed off of a fiscal cliff in the very near future, but what could that look like? Author and journalist Lionel Shriver shares the plot of her new book “The Mandibles,” which describes one possible downturn in our economic future. She’ll answer the question: is there a remedy for the little guy?

Coinciding with Christmas Eve this year is the beginning of Hanukkah, a Jewish remembrance of, among many things, heroes of the faith. Rabbi Yonason Goldson (www.yonasongoldson.com), Jewish History Teacher in St. Louis looks at the true meaning of heroism: selflessness and doing the right thing in service to something greater than yourself.

John’s quote of the week:
“We have two fundamentally different worldviews that are fighting against each other, struggling for control. At the very same time, we are sliding toward a series of major crises that neither of those two sides seems to mention.”

Our Section 6 intelligence brief is on holiday hiatus but we will return in 2017 with more analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

Happy Hanukkah for our Jewish listeners.

John’s extended boralogue commences with an overview of the fiscal cliff Kabuki theatre playing out in congress. Then it continues into the changing western perceptions of truth and how this affects political correctness and what the media report. John’s cites paragraphs from Melanie Phillips’s new book, “The World Turned Upside Down.”

From there we move into the guest segments, the first being Phyllis Schlafly from Eagle Forum (www.eagleforum.org). Mrs. Schlafly presents an exposition of how the three rules of political correctness are killing our ability to have meaningful discourse because they are not truth-based.

Then this theme is continued as we go for a summary of the changing Middle East chessboard and the distorted secular media view covering these conflicts. Barry Rubin is director of the Global Research in International Affairs Center (GLORIA) in Israel and his editorials appear at (www.pjmedia.com).

Today’s show is well-packed with information.

When Reality Becomes Real

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.
