Does the U.S. have a good legacy or a bad legacy? The answer is ‘yes.’ In this week’s boralogue, John asks – was the American experiment actually worth it? We have freedom and rights and prosperity in this country and that has enabled a group of people today to condemn freedom and rights and prosperity. America has been through a lot and that process is the reason why we are the greatest nation in the world today. It’s tragic that certain people want to destroy that.

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-WolffThe battle for the future is the battle for free speech, but that battle is being lost in Europe. Free speech activist and author Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff (www.encountertruth.com) joins us to discuss her experience with the politically correct speech police in Europe when she was vilified for speaking actual facts about Islam. She asserts that America must battle to keep freedom, because when it fails here, it fails worldwide.

John takes a moment to give an update on the Middle East, focusing on Iran and the amping up of their nuclear program as well as their strategy to geographically box in Israel, presumably in preparation for a future attack.

Avi AbelowGiving a perspective from inside Israel, Avi Abelow, CEO of 12 Tribes Films, (www.israelunwired.com) joins us to defend Israel from untrue attacks from the liberal Left and discuss how supporting Israel is the right thing for peace in the region because Israel sits on the front line of freedom in the Middle East.

John’s quote of the week:
What made our experiment in the West different than everywhere else? We began to see value in each individual human being as a creature of God. That we have certain unalienable rights granted to us by God. That the purpose of government is to defend those rights, to protect those rights, and to not violate them.

In this week’s Extras segment, it’s a double feature showing the worldview battle we find ourselves in today. From September 2013, we play an interview with Jim Simpson on the Left’s Cloward-Piven strategy. Then we transition to a June 2012 interview with Darrow Miller on the need to get back to our Judeo-Christian foundation if we are going to win this battle in the West.

Checking the Fact Checkers

We are divided on this earth and we fight each other over a myriad of issues every day. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the battles being waged not only in the physical world but also in the spiritual realm. We can wear our armor and use our weapons but it is ultimately God and His love that saves us. And we are to use the love He gives us to pray for and bless those who oppose us in our earthly battles.

Who determines what fake news is and what is real? Christian Robey (www.newsbusters.org/fact-checkers), Political Director at the Media Research Center, joins us to discuss censorship in the form of biased fact-checkers and the battle between the mainstream and independent media. Who is fact checking the fact checkers?

There is a backlash in Europe over the anti-freedom tactics from Brussels. We welcome back award winning journalist and writer Christine Douglass-Williams (www.jihadwatch.org) who points out that the EU is getting nervous about the backlash and is using the terms “fake news” and “hate speech” to shut down the free flow of ideas in order to keep a hold on their power.

Marxist groups who want to shut down speeches or conferences badger venues until the event is cancelled – it’s called the heckler’s veto. Shahram Hadian (www.tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth in Love Project, describes how his event was canceled in Minnesota due to the heckler’s veto and how he is fighting back against this violation of freedom of speech.

John’s quote of the week:
You have two groups of people starting from different worldview assumptions, using different processes of thinking to arrive at many different conclusions and thinking the other side is probably evil incarnate and almost incapable of communicating with each other because we don’t have much common ground. There’s only one area where you can hit this common ground and that is in the area of Christianity.

In this week’s Section 6, John waxes nostalgic about the way it was in radio broadcasting back in his day and compares it with newscasting in today’s world. He then discusses the battle between federal versus state laws, the impact of the raid on the office of President Trump’s personal attorney, and several stories that represent a larger agenda being enacted.

Friction Makes the Whole Thing Work

Calls for more gun control and even a repeal of the second amendment are gaining traction. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at similarities between comments by young gun control activists today and those from the 1960s. It seems utopia falls further and further away as one gets older and wiser. We need the second amendment so that our first amendment rights won’t be taken away.

When is the law, the law? If federal law makes something illegal but states make it legal, what trumps what? Author and historian Daniel Mallock (www.danielmallock.com) examines sanctuary city laws versus federal law, who determines what is morally right if that is the reason for violating a law, and how Alinsky tactics are being used to disrupt society.

Is there a deep state coup behind the scenes working to undermine and eventually oust President Trump? Investigative journalist and author Jerome Corsi (www.infowars.com) joins us to discuss his book “Killing the Deep State” and offer examples of how the shadow government is working hard to accomplish their agenda and the possible consequences stemming from their illegal activities.

To finish off the show, John and Producer Steve discuss several topics, including climate change, the Pope, the EU banning free speech, and hypocrisy within the sanctuary city ideology.

John’s quote of the week:
The second amendment isn’t really outdated after all, because the people trying to deprive you of your gun rights are trying to deprive you of your rights of religion, speech, and the press as well. It’s the first amendment that provides for those rights, but it’s the second amendment that guarantees that the government can’t take them away.

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at Israeli-Palestinian relations and we play John’s interview with local Idaho station KYMS from March 31 where he speaks about Christian persecution, President Trump’s strategies on multiple fronts, and where we are headed in this country.

Happy Easter. Christ is risen! We are skipping the boralogue this holiday week and jumping straight into our first guest. Author and political analyst Dr. Gerard Lameiro (www.greatnewsforamerica.com) joins us to discuss whether or not progressive ideas are failing and what, based on historical cycles, American voters are looking for.

The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution states in part that private property shall not be taken for public use without just compensation. Christina Martin (www.pacificlegal.org), attorney at Pacific Legal Foundation, reviews one of her cases from Pennsylvania and another from Michigan and shows how civil asset forfeiture is being creatively used to foreclose on homeowners.

Are communist ideals already established in this country? Joel McDurmon (www.americanvision.org), President of American Vision, examines how Communist Manifesto policies are popping up throughout our society. The need for education is paramount in order to know what our freedoms are and recognize how to get them back.

John’s quote of the week:
When a failing worldview is challenged, they don’t repent – they double down and commit more of the error that they committed before. This of course accentuates the dive into the ground.

Section 6 is taking a break this week for the Easter holiday but we will return next week for more geopolitical news.
