The past can be accurately predictive of the future. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at predictions and how, if you study the historical trends with politics and the economy, it’s easy to see where we’re headed. He highlights the leftward momentum toward a utopian society and the pushback that has resulted from it. When the storms arrive, we should be prepared and stand on rock, not on shifting sand.

Can we have human rights without natural law? Dan Philpott (www.arcoftheuniverse.info), Political Science Professor at the University of Notre Dame, joins us to discuss the nature of right and wrong and expectations surrounding Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s new Commission on Unalienable Rights.

When you sort through all the noise in the news today, certain data points about our future become clear. We welcome back futurist and author James Kunstler (www.kunstler.com) to the program to look at what’s in store for the Republicans and the Democrats, as well as what we can expect in the economy and free speech arenas.

To illustrate how effective predictions can be, John plays part of a speech from Robert Welch from 1968 showing exactly how progressive socialists have operated in the last half century. He also plays a speech from the late Dr. Michael Coffman, a former guest on Steel, highlighting the competing worldviews of John Locke and Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

John’s quote of the week:
The purpose of rights as they were written in our Constitution is to act as a firewall, not to enable government but to block government from infringing on the rights of the people. People would then have the maximum opportunity to be free, to engage in free enterprise, and to be left alone.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play John’s latest appearance on Stand Up For the Truth on Q90FM out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. John and the hosts discuss the concept of hate, especially on the internet, reaching out to millennials, and how we got to this point of dysfunctional discussions, both online and in person.

There are different ways to get to totalitarian socialism but in the end it still results in socialism. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the extremes of both the Left and the Right and their potential paths to bondage and slavery. Freedom and capitalism are both at the gate to these paths and it’s imperative that we stay there. We must stay vigilant and always fight for our freedoms.

Anti-semitism is back in the news after the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pennsylvania a couple of weeks ago. Writer on politics and philosophy Paul Austin Murphy (www.paulaustinmurphypam.blogspot.com), discusses the formation of leftist anti-Semitism in Europe and the unlikely union between leftists and hardcore Islamists.

The midterms are over but why is that no matter who we vote into Congress, nothing ever seems to change? Former member of the U.S. House of Representatives Tom Tancredo joins us to explain how things really work in Congress and how immigration was on the mind of the voters as they made their selections this week.

Finally we welcome Andrea Picciotti-Bayer (www.thecatholicassociation.org), Legal Advisor for The Catholic Association, who relates the case of a Catholic diocese in Philadelphia that has been denied their ability to refer children for foster care because of their stance on same sex couples. It’s a battle over ideology but the children are the ones left out.

John’s quote of the week:
The real danger threatening us is the progressive socialism that has completely riddled through the Democrat party, taking many liberals with it, and also through a large part of the Republican party. There is a fight over the Constitution in which we can stay centered in freedom.

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at online hate speech used as a tool to silence political opinions along with several other parallel trends that could hurtle us toward totalitarianism and violence. Are these trends pointing to signs of the end times?

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.

Hate Speech Not Included

Germany once faced a grim choice: Marxism or Nazism. Today in America, we have the Marxist Antifa group and the white nationalist Nazis. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at those two choices and notes that, despite the message of those who would try to divide us, we do have a third choice: a Constitutional government that allows freedom. It’s always worked. The real battle is between totalitarianism and freedom. It’s time to make our voice heard and choose wisely.

Those who espouse views different from the accepted politically correct narrative are being squeezed out of social media. Paula Bolyard (www.pjmedia.com), Supervising Editor at PJ Media, discusses the new hate news index algorithms being used by Google and Facebook to flag “hate speech” and remove it from the internet.

Democratic socialism is a myth, but that doesn’t stop people from pointing to Norway and Sweden as successful examples of it. Nima Sanandaji (www.ecepr.org), President of the European Center for Entrepreneurship and Policy Reform, examines the fiction of democratic socialism and the benefits of free markets and strong work ethic over big government welfare.

Does voter fraud exist? Is it wrong to require an ID to vote? Irene Garcia (www.judicalwatch.org), Investigative Reporter at Judicial Watch joins us to discuss these issues as well as report on a case out of Massachusetts where federal authorities have discovered fake IDs were being sold to illegal immigrants who later voted in an election in Boston.

Finally we welcome back author and historian Bill Federer (www.americanminute.com) who gives us the history of hate speech back to the American and French Revolutions and reveals a long, drawn-out plan to deconstruct our past, change our history, and allow young students to forget what makes America the great country it is.

John’s quote of the week:
Nazism and Marxism are two sides of the same socialist totalitarian coin. And today, if you listen to some of the discourse, the United States is being offered the very same choice: Antifa neo-Marxism or neo-Nazi racism – as if there were no other choice. There is: a return to constitutional government that has provided us with so much freedom and prosperity.

Coming up in Section 6: natural disasters and emergency preparedness, looking logically at the global warming issue, a Christian persecution update, and a detailed primer on logic and critical thinking.
