It’s easy to be overwhelmed as a deluge of news bombards us from all directions. In this week’s boralogue, John rises above the noise and looks at where we stand, including the narrow path between fighting the virus and fighting problems that arise from a slow economy, and how progressive narratives are being uprooted in the virus’s wake. The best way to get through all the noise, however, is with faith in God, who is our anchor point.

Michael FarrisA new battle has erupted on an old narrative: homeschooling is bad for students. Michael Farris (www.hslda.org), Chairman of the Homeschool Legal Defense Association, shows that educrats have always disregarded parental values in favor of the progressive ideologies of teachers. With homeschools gaining in popularity, now these educrats are fighting back.

Bill ReedHow are Russia and Vladimir Putin dealing with the geopolitics surrounding this pandemic? Craig Reed (www.wcraigreed.com), former U.S. Navy Diver and Co-Founder of Us4Warriors Veterans Foundation, analyzes how Vladimir Putin navigates the global chess board as leader of Russia, how he came to power, and what Western leaders should do to compete.

Steve ElwartSteve Elwart, Director of Systems Engineering for Ergon Refining in Mississippi, joins us for the rest of the program to examine all aspects of the oil industry from extracting it out of the ground to delivery at the gas station as well as prices on the oil market. He and John then discuss how different the world will be when we emerge from this pandemic.

John’s quote of the week:
With regard to public schools versus homeschools: “Do the views of the parents get reflected in what’s taught in the school or is government dictating to the students and to the parents what will be taught? Totalitarian societies dictate. Free societies do not.

On this week’s extra segment, we play an interview with Victor Davis Hanson from a little over a year ago where he discusses the reason for President’s Trump’s victory in 2016, mistakes that those on Left make regarding the president, and a few critiques of the administration. John follows up with some analysis on free speech and the economy.

The Great Race

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast

We are skipping over the boralogue this week and jumping in with John Zmirak (www.stream.org), Senior Editor at The Stream, who examines the geopolitics of Syria and the Middle East as it pertains to the Kurds and the Turks, the battle between Iran and Israel, and how Christians are faring in the region.

The great race is on between the Federal Reserve and the Trump administration in the plan to hike interest rates. Stephen Moore (www.freedomworks.org), Senior Economic Contributor for Freedom Works and advisor to President Trump joins us to discuss the state of the economy, how to get spending under control, and the need to continue pro-growth policies.

The Catholic Church has entered into an agreement with the Chinese government that could be detrimental to Christians in China. Gina Goh (www.persecution.org), Southeast Asia Regional Manager for International Christian Concern, gives her observations on how the agreement is affecting local churches and how persecution there is strengthening Christians’ resolve.

Agenda 21 from the UN has now morphed into a new plan: Agenda 2030. Author and teacher Jeffrey Ludwig (www.americanthinker.com) points out that catch phrases in the new plan – positive rights, sustainable development, needs of the world – don’t actually achieve anything. The plan doesn’t specifically call for a one-world government, but it is a strong move forward in setting one up.

John’ s quote of the week:
We are in not a political clash but a philosophical clash. It’s a clash between the old Judeo-Christian western civilization model versus the regurgitation of the Neo-Marxist ideas of class struggle and warfare. They are both vying for control of the governments of the West.

This week we are changing up our Section 6 portion of the program – John will explain what our future plans are with that. We play snippets from a classic episode of Steel of Steel from November 2006 titled ‘Dancing with the Dialectic’.

There is actually a world outside of the Kavanaugh circus, but the media seems to only focus on the DC big top. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at geopolitics between Israel and the EU, specifically Germany and France, as well as the back and forth of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. But with all of that and more happening around the world, the mainstream media has managed to turn a 10-minute newscast into a single-issue 24-hour event.

Is another government-led land grab happening in the name of preserving history? Tom DeWeese (www.americanpolicy.org), Founder and President of the American Policy Center, describes how change agents are trying to designate private land as National Heritage Areas and how landowners are fighting back.

The liberal world order has dubious origins going back nearly a century. Mitch Wright (www.countryporch.com), Retired Coast Guard member and online business owner joins John in studio to examine how we got here, looking at Alice A. Bailey, the Arcane School, The Plan, and the Lucis Trust.

John’s quote of the week:
“The problem with the European Union and countries like France is that their commitment to their Utopian ideals is blinding them to many of the dangers they are facing. At least publicly – behind the scenes they will be asking, ‘Hey, Israelis, do you have any intelligence for us?'”

In this week’s Section 6, John defers detailed analysis on the Kavanaugh vote until next week, but he does discuss Alinsky style tactics and how people are starting to catch on to them. He goes on to discuss the future of global economics, artificial intelligence making life and death decisions, and of course, Church history and theology.

Farewell 2015, we hardly knew ye. Time flies as we welcome in the New Year. Happy 2016, everyone! We will dispense with the boralogue this week and jump right in with our first guest, Bill Koenig (www.watch.org), head of World Watch Daily, who looks at the year in review and what is to come.

In an extended conversation, Bill examines Donald Trump’s rise in popularity and the media’s dislike of it, the dynamics from last year’s comments by the Pope, how President Obama is viewed from inside our government, and what’s in store for Israeli-Palestinian relations this year. Can the world get crazier than it currently is? Dangerous question to ask.

How will the Middle East play out in 2016 and beyond? We welcome back long-time guest Avi Lipkin (www.vicmord.com), who shares his predictions of major geopolitical and military moves between Saudi Arabia, Iran, Egypt, and Turkey, how immigration will further Islam’s war on the West, and a confrontation between the one-world government and Islam over power and money.

John’s quote of the week:

“The problem with the institutional racism game is … it’s like a game you get in to – you can’t win, you can’t break even, and you can’t get out of the game. And the only answer is not to play.”

Our Section 6 intelligence brief is on hiatus this week, but it will return next week.
