Before this week, you probably didn’t think 2020 could get any crazier. Now we have a Supreme Court nomination fight on our hands. John opens the show this week looking beyond the news everyone else is talking about and tackling issues like judicial activism, the need for a full court before the post-election legal chaos, and how the making of laws should fall squarely on the shoulders of Congress, not the executive or judicial branches.

James KunstlerWith all the craziness going, John checks in with long-time friend of the show, author and futurist James Kunstler (www.kunstler.com). They discuss the current state of affairs including when the democrat party really started going off the rails. He goes on to predict where the United States is going economically as well as where the oil industry is headed and he looks at the fate of our country’s urban centers.

Finally, we welcome Russell Berman (www.hoover.org), Humanities Professor at Stanford and Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, who examines one of the latest chess pieces in President Trump’s foreign policy plan – the agreement between Serbia and Kosovo and their future relationship with Israel. The President was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for this accomplishment. Will he actually win or will political correctness infiltrate another award ceremony?

James KunstlerThings are crazy right now, what with the election coming up and a contentious Supreme Court battle just around the corner. Where will be after all of this? Author and futurist James Kunstler (www.kunstler.com) is back with us to examine our current state of affairs. He looks at when the democrat party really started to go off the rails and how both sides are handling the important issues.

Mr. Kunstler analyzes the economy and the oil industry and predicts where our society will be in the near future. He also forecasts the fate of urban centers in the U.S. after the virus crisis is over. Will New York City ever be the same?

The Long Emergency II

Login to access this full program.

There is what’s known as a black or white fallacy surrounding this coronavirus pandemic: it’s either no big deal or it’s the end of the world. As usual, the truth lies somewhere in the middle. In this week’s extended boralogue, John covers the facts, not the fiction, behind the disease. He begins by accurately stating the medical truth of the virus and then pivots to the economic impact.

He is then joined by his better half, Carol Loeffler, to further explore how the coronavirus is affecting various countries financially on the global geo-economic chessboard. They then examine the virus’s influence on the oil markets.

James KunstlerWill this black swan event push us into a recession or could it also push us into a long emergency? John welcomes back to the program futurist and author James Kunstler (www.kunstler.com), who discusses the future of oil and shale production in the U.S., where transportation is headed, and the danger when crises like this threaten what we perceive as normality.

Dr. Jenna SilakoskiWe finish off the show with Dr. Jenna Silakoski (www.northidahodpc.com), a physician in North Idaho, who gives a realistic on the ground view of the coronavirus and how she is handling it from a doctor’s perspective.

John’s quote of the week:
In any crisis, the most important thing to remember is God understands and He will provide for us as we go. You can ask Him for wisdom. ‘Father, show me where to go and what I need to do.’ So let’s move on and face this. It’s a challenge. But God is always up to challenges.

On this week’s extra segment, we play John’s latest guest appearance on local radio station KYMS with host Lee Lancaster. In addition to giving a martyred church update, John discusses with Lee the coronavirus (as well as an interesting way to keep from getting it) and defending your faith in times of trouble.

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.

Election mania is dominating the airwaves but there are some sobering stories surrounding the economy and Christian persecution that are flying under the media radar. In this week’s boralogue, John reminds us of the economic cliff on the horizon and then gives us an update on Asia Bibi’s blasphemy case in Pakistan and the latest with Pastor X and his family. There are major changes in both cases so please be in prayer.

With an impending debt crisis looming, how long can we continue to live our normal everyday lives? We look forward with author and former magazine writer James Kunstler (www.kunstler.com) who describes what life could look like if we go through another monetary crash and possible food shortage. He also examines indoctrination in schools that lead to ideologically bad decisions.

With the midterm elections just a few days away, what can we expect from voters and what will the political landscape looks like on November 7? We look forward with author and political forecaster Gerard Lameiro (www.greatnewsforamerica.com) who looks at issues that could affect the election, a better way to forecast the results, and the very real possibility of a more conservative Congress.

John’s quote of the week:
One thing we have seen clearly since the last election has been the disrespect of the progressive elites for the current system. They are willing to call anyone who opposes their ideas idiots, phobes, racists, they will deny you your rights and demand that you honor all these new rights that they make up out of thin air and if you don’t, you know what happens. You have to remember that at these elections.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss free speech violations in Europe, President Trump’s pattern with both the media and with world events, and the massive hypocrisy with the media when it comes to civility in politics.
