The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) is back before the senate, with an oddball consortium of supporters seeking ratification. Phyllis Schlafly from Eagle Forum (www.eagleforum.org) is featured in the first interview today to detail this problematical treaty.

Illegal immigration and policy is a hot center of controversy, but what about Christians seeking asylum in this country as they flee from persecution in their home countries? Professor Louis Gordon from Cal State San Bernardino is a defense attorney for people seeking refuge in this country, and he contrasts today’s conditions with an article he wrote 10 years ago for the Middle East Quarterly.

The Olympics are to be held in London shortly. Have we learned anything about terrorism since the massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics? Olympic historian David Clay Large is author of the book, “Munich 1972,” with a fascinating contrasts of conditions then and now.

Finally, Millennials are going to be asked to foot all the bills the Baby Boomers ran up in entitlement programs, from which the Millennials aren’t going to get any benefit. Are they aware of what this means to them? David Bass (www.spectator.org) is a Millennial who wrote a piece for the American Spectator entitled, “The Millennial Perspective.”

John’s boralogue updates the Euro situation again as the world grinds slowly and inexorably toward a global currency crisis. The key indicators to watch are the price and interest rates of sovereign bonds and bank runs.

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.
