Is there any logic to the NFL national anthem protests? In this week’s boralogue, John asks the logical progression of questions to get to the bottom of the issue. Pundits are talking past each other instead of having a logical discussion to debate the issue. Plus John dissects Jake Sullivan’s comment on the location of Iran’s uranium in our clip of the week.

If we’re going to discuss how socialism has never worked, we should hear from someone who lived it for years. Yuri Maltsev (www.carthage.edu), Member of the Board of Advisors at Carthage College, details his time working with Mikhail Gorbachev – before defecting to the United States – and how socialists rule by force and by fear. Out of 36 times in history, socialism has not once succeeded.

Who determines what health care services you get and don’t get? Pat Wood (www.technocracy.news), Editor of Technocracy News, discusses the elimination of doctor-patient relationships in favor of evidence-based medicine and the collection of your personal data that is sold to the highest bidder.

Finally, John and Steel Producer Steve diagnose liberal outrage in an audio clip of a student upset at a man wearing a Make American Great Again hat. There is a divide in our country and people yelling at each other and refusing to see the other’s point of view doesn’t help.

John’s quote of the week:
Marxism had a political worldview, a religious worldview, and an economic worldview. They are not biblical worldviews. They do not come from Judeo-Christian tradition and background. Why do you think the assault on Western civilization is so virulent and angry and aggressive? That’s why.

This week on our Section 6 Intelligence Brief: Understanding truth and logic, how the Protestant reformation created the freedoms we enjoy today, Catalonian independence from Spain, an update on Christian persecution, preparing for natural disasters such as the Yellowstone super volcano and La Palma.

Racism is back in the spotlight after the events in Charlottesville. Is the fight against it being waged intelligently? In this week’s extended boralogue, John looks at what’s really causing division in our country, the similar roots of fascism and Marxism, and the need to uphold freedom of speech for everyone. Taking down statues isn’t going to solve racism. The freedom for everyone to exchange ideas and discuss the problem may.

Media meltdowns have increased exponentially since last November and it’s tarnishing the reputation of the fourth estate. Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Goodwin (www.nypost.com), Columnist for the New York Post, examines the lowering or at times complete elimination of journalistic standards when it comes to coverage of President Trump. Will the media recover? And should they?

Government control of healthcare can lead to a slide toward totalitarianism. We are joined by constitutional law attorney Jenna Ellis (www.ccu.edu) who reviews the Charlie Gard case in the UK and shows that government is usurping parents’ rights when it comes to their children. She also looks at religious freedom court cases involving cake bakers and gay weddings.

John’s quote of the week:
“When an issue goes stale or becomes dangerous, it is dropped like a hot potato and they move on to the next issue about which they are outraged, forgetting of course the previous outrage which is no longer apparently outrageous. When we have pulled down Confederate statues, they will not be pacified but will move on to the next outrage.”

Coming up in Section 6, John discusses a novel idea; how about free speech for everyone, regardless of their views and beliefs? Plus, what’s the best way to fight hate? It’s simpler than you think. John also covers the tactic of framing the debate and why the Left always seems to get the upper hand. Lastly, the topic of the history of the various reforms and splits in the Christian church. You won’t want to miss this!

My Paradigm’s Broken

Happy soon-to-be Thanksgiving everyone. In this week’s boralogue, John shows that we should be thankful because we are blessed in America compared with many other nations. When elections and issues and fighting erupt, we should step back, respect one another, listen to each other, and if rights collide, find a way to leave each other be. We live in a free society and freedom means you are free to do what your conscience dictates.

Why is there such an outrage following the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States? Dr. Steve Turley (www.turleytalks.com), Fine Arts Professor at Eastern University rejoins us to discuss the Left’s bruised post-election paradigm as well as secularism in the United States, emancipatory politics, and the rise of populism.

Is there such a thing as a free market? Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute Nicole Gelinas (www.manhattan-institute.org) looks at healthcare and the housing market and posits that the market becomes far less free when government gets involved.

John’s quote of the week:
“We have been blessed. As Americans fighting over things, we tend to get very selfish at times. Maybe we need to stop forgetting that we have been very blessed and that we should be very thankful to God who established us and has preserved us for as long as He has.”

As always, join us online for our Section 6 intelligence briefing featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

Happy Easter, everyone. Christ is risen. This week we take a look at the history of Easter, ahem, I mean Resurrection Sunday. Wait, no it’s Easter. What is it called? Also, did you know there was a controversy as to when Easter is to be celebrated? John sorts it all out in this week’s boralogue and ties it to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) controversy in Indiana.

Speaking of which, did anyone miss the row this week caused by the RFRA in Indiana? The circus and misinformation ran rampant, but factual accuracy barely made a cameo. Travis Weber (www.frc.org), Director for Religious Liberty at the Family Research Council, sorts out the controversy and wording behind the bill and shows what the mainstream media won’t in the legislation’s true purpose.

Switching to the subject of healthcare, Twila Brase (www.cchfreedom.org), President of the Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom, explains the dangers of interoperability, which means your healthcare records would sooner or later be available to the world. Did you ever wonder about all the fine print on the HIPAA privacy forms found at your doctor’s office and are you actually required to sign them?

So what happens when a medical company unexpectedly becomes entangled in the complex jungle of regulations it faces? We welcome to the program Michael Daugherty (www.devilinsidethebeltway.com), President and CEO of LabMD, an Atlanta-based clinical laboratory, who discusses his book: Devil Inside the Beltway. Like all page-turning thrillers, there’s intrigue including computer hacking, blackmail, illegal surveillance and overwhelming odds against an unstoppable foe. This thriller is nonfiction, though, and reveals the potential consequences to American small businesses.

Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!Join us as we continue our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6, which features comments by John on important stories making news around the world.
