With crazy stories inundating us every day, how did we get to this point? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at history from the protests of the 1960s through the blossoming of the internet age to where we are now with late-term abortion laws and media people not living up to journalistic standards. There are those who are tired of being choked by political correctness and they are fighting back.

If we’re not careful, the socialistic healthcare system in Canada could make its way south. Author and retired businessman William Gairdner (www.williamgairdner.ca) joins us from the Great White North to discuss the costs and rules of free healthcare for all and how some, usually the well-connected, get around those rules.

The Pope just signed an agreement with Sheik Ahmad el-Tayeb, the grand imam of al-Azhar. Author and Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim (www.raymondibrahim.com) contrasts the watered-down language of the agreement with the Sheik’s speeches about it in Arabic. He also dissects the media and liberal adoration of Islam and the Pope.

Is the national emergency declaration on the border wall a good idea? It depends on who you ask. Dr. Merrill Matthews (www.ipi.org), Resident Scholar with the Institute for Policy Innovation, examines partisan hypocrisy over the execution of emergency declarations and what that may mean for the future.

John’s quote of the week:
“The education system is broken; it’s being run by the people who broke it. But they actively, aggressively oppose any kind of reform which would fix it. Yet these same politicians send their kids to private schools. They don’t want to put themselves in the very system they’re smashing down on everyone else.”

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview John gave last week on Stand Up For The Truth with Mike LeMay on Q90FM in Wisconsin (standupforthetruth.com). John and Mike discuss political correctness in both society and the Church as well as the increase of being a victim and how it has become a badge of honor, and the best ways to get back on track with Christianity in the west.

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!
