How do we define the terms of any battle? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the weaponization of language when it comes to political and cultural battles, looking back at the Third Reich and the Spanish Inquisition to compare to the tactics of social justice warriors today. Free speech and open discussion of ideas are what we have now. We need to stand up against those who would take those freedoms away.

Immigration is at the top of every news cycle today, but are we getting the whole truth about who’s coming here? Todd Bensman (www.cis.org), Senior National Security Fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies, reveals the truth about where those who are coming from South America are actually from and discusses the similarities and differences between Europe’s and America’s approach to handling the migrant crisis.

Is there another Reformation on the horizon for the Catholic Church? John Zmirak (www.stream.org), Senior Editor at The Stream returns to examine the controversies surrounding the current Pope and the need for reform now that socialist ideas seem to be taking hold within the Church.

What is the difference between justice and social justice? Mark Hendrickson (www.visionandvalues.org), Economic Professor at Grove City College, joins us to discuss how government should ideally function and then how it would function should social justice warriors and the PC elites take over.

John finishes up the program this week reviewing several news stories, including the government shutdown, our growing debt problem, and the ability to exercise free speech when it comes to politically correct issues.

John’s quote of the week:
“Intersectionality is an effort to make appear logical that which is fundamentally illogical. They are trying to put it in some kind of order where they can contain the irrational chaos.”

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview from August 2015 with Dan Gordon regarding the similarities between terror tunnels under the Israel-Gaza border and those under the U.S.-Mexico border.

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?

It’s relativism versus reality and as always, reality is winning. In this week’s abbreviated boralogue, John looks at the failure of relativistic laws to hold up in the face of real life, using Seattle’s decision to repeal a head tax they had just enacted a month prior after several businesses suggested that perhaps they may skip town and take their money with them.

Policies that go against the beliefs of people, though wildly unpopular, are being enacted in Canada. Natasha Fernandes (www.physiciansforlife.ca), Board Member for Canadian Physicians for Life describes how doctors in Ontario will have to refer patients to abortion or euthanasia services, even if it violates the doctor’s beliefs.

Does the populist victory in recent Italian elections indicate the formation of cracks in the globalist economy? Dave McAlvany (www.mcalvany.com), host of the McAlvany Weekly Commentary discusses the state of the EU financial markets, the future of the global economy, and the raising of interest rates in the United States.

John and Producer Steve look at President Trump and his plans in the Middle East and his relationship with both Benjamin Netanyahu and Justin Trudeau.

We finish the show with financial analyst and AI blogger Cris Sheridan (aiantichrist.blogspot.com) who gives an update on the progress of artificial intelligence, including the ability to perfectly mimic someone’s voice to say whatever you want them to say.

John’s quote of the week:
People with constantly changing, oftentimes self-contradicting morals, are trying to dictate to people by law, with firm constant morals, that they shouldn’t have firm morals when their relative morals go against them.

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at failing policies that garner pushback from the people but harsher policies from government. He goes on to speak about yet another meaningless UN resolution against Israel, Catholic Church policies on immigration, ultra-PC opinions from leftist professors, and thinking for yourself when you see misleading news articles.

Absolute truth is shunned by postmodernists and they do so absolutely. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at existentialism and postmodernism and their destructive effect on society today. To turn one’s back on truth and embrace relative thought is to set adrift in life with no foundation. To deal with this philosophy and whatever comes next, we should stand on our Christian faith.

On May 14-15, 2018, Israel celebrated their 70th anniversary and opened a U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. The media, however, focused on violence at the border with Gaza. John Guandolo (www.understandingthethreat.com), President and Founder of Understanding the Threat, was in Israel and describes what really happened and how civilian Israelis and those in the military view America.

Christ at the Checkpoint is an annual conference held in Bethlehem at the end of May. Are speakers at this conference conveying a Christian message? Olivier Melnick (www.chosenpeople.com), National Training Director for Chosen People Ministries, reveals that some Christians may be attempting to rewrite Biblical history to favor Palestine and disfavor Israel. He asks: is anti-Semitism at work in the Christian church?

To avoid violence on our borders and keep it from spreading into our country, President Trump’s administration is attempting to strengthen immigration policies. We welcome back retired INS Senior Special Agent Michael Cutler (www.michaelcutler.net) who discusses visa program loopholes, terrorist training centers in Central and South America, and sleeper agents within the U.S. who are biding their time.

John’s quote of the week:
You can’t make your own reality and complain when somebody else creates theirs in a way you don’t like. That’s the direct result of this nonsensical system of postmodernism which we’ve had for over 60 years. A society cannot be stable for very long with that.

In this week’s Section 6, John discusses the exclusivity of individual religions, how human nature and truth relate to our faith and America’s freedoms, and the repeal of Glass-Steagall.
