Virtually all government agencies are bogged down with myriad regulations and reform is needed. In this week’s boralogue, John points out that despite dumping mining waste chemicals into Colorado’s Animas River, the EPA continues their quest to control all water in the United States, regardless of homeowners’ property rights. Accountability is needed, demonization of average citizens should cease, and justice should be administered fairly. American citizens should not be looked at as the enemy. Our rights are slowly eroding away, and when they vanish, it will be quite some time before we get them back.

We continue our thread this week on the thoughts and actions of Pope Francis with a roundtable discussion on papal advisor Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Madariaga. Rejoining the program are John Zmirak (www.saveourcentury.com), senior editor at TheStream.org, and Jorge Velarde Rosso (www.acton.org), senior researcher at the Acton Institute in Argentina. Cardinal Madariaga has gone on record with anti-Semitic beliefs, accusing Jews of conspiracies against the church, and has advised the Pope that big government can solve the problems of the world that capitalism failed to. With the Pope speaking to the U.N. General Assembly in late September, will the concept of sustainable development take hold and attempt to establish a one world government?

In the early 21st century, the West associates yoga with posture, flexibility, and exercise. Michael Austin (www.publishthegoodnews.com), founder of the Christian communications ministry Publish the Good News, and a former yoga teacher, examines the history and function of yoga from its religious role in Hinduism to its completely different Westernized version. Is it harmless or a plan to introduce pantheism to a Christian nation?

The United States dropped two atomic bombs on Japan 70 years ago this month. Retired MIT Physics Professor Hale Bradt (www.wilburswar.com), is author of the Wilbur’s War trilogy, a tale of the Pacific Theater during WWII culled from letters written by his father, a U.S. soldier. He discusses the moral controversy of dropping the bombs and contends that in doing so, we may have prevented a far great number of casualties that would have died during the invasion of Japan.

Outrage is all the, well, rage these days. In this week’s boralogue, John examines stories generating much indignation in the news. First, the Obama administration wants to ban gun ownership for Social Security recipients, who lack the mental capacity to manage their own affairs. Question: who determines mental capacity? Also, when Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley recently said that all lives matter, he was booed by outraged protestors and later apologized! It should be a level playing field. We all have inherent rights that should apply to everyone equally. It’s a novel concept found in the Declaration of Independence. There are those who are destroying the moral foundation they stand on for the sake of being outraged.

Predictions are useful only if someone listens and takes heed. Back for another appearance is former Senior Associate at the U.S. Department of Education, Dennis Cuddy (www.newswithviews.com), who recalls many accurate predictions he made in 2013 and forecasts potential terrorist threats just around the corner, including large scale forest fires, poison spray at grocery stores, and IEDs damaging our transportation systems.

This week an undercover group exposed a profit-making scheme selling fetal body parts by Planned Parenthood. John Zmirak (www.saveourcentury.com), Senior Editor at The Stream, joins us and calls for the defunding of America’s largest abortion factory. He uncovers the history of the organization and its racist founder, Margaret Sanger, who would use any issue to advance her core ideology, built on an eroding foundation of sexual liberation and population control.

Joe Baker (www.savethestorks.com), Founder and President of Save the Storks, is on the front line in the abortion battle. Instead of protesting in anger, he shows how God continues to lead his organization’s efforts to educate expectant mothers outside abortion clinics so they can make an educated choice.

John transitions into a second boralogue imploring that each of us individually can stand up and make a difference in this world and that is things look darker, we should be more optimistic rather than worse. Through prayer and petition, God lead us to His good work.

Finally, we’ll continue the thread surrounding Pope Francis’s words and actions. Jorge Velarde Rosso (www.acton.org), Founder and Research Director of LIBERA in Bolivia, gives us a Bolivian Catholic’s perspective on the Pope’s recent visit to South America. Professor Rosso admits his distress at the Pope’s embrace of extreme leftist politics, but reveals he is not surprised given the political climate in Latin America.

Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!As always, join us online for our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. John follows up on last week’s Section 6 with the details from the recent P5+1 Iranian nuclear agreement.

To Save or Destroy the Republic?

We clear the decks today for an important show. This involves skipping the boralogue.

First, former U.S. Attorney General, John Ashcroft joins the program for a discussion about his new book, “Never Again, Securing America and Restoring Justice.” It’s time for hard questions about the War on Terror and the laws that have been passed to deal with it since 9/11.

The next segment examines an alarming hostility to freedom of speech on college campuses. John Zmirak is author of “All-American Colleges, Top Schools for Conservatives, Old-Fashioned Liberals and People of Faith” (www.collegeguide.org). He does a survey of trends regarding free speech on college campuses.
