Window to the Left

The Overton Window is a perception at any given moment of what is acceptable in society. In this week’s extended boralogue, John gives several examples of how the Overton Window has drifted leftward over the decades. It was originally moored in Judeo-Christian values but then broke free and caused a progressive change in society that has left us on a pitching deck of constantly changing, relativist, self-contradicting ideas.

Attorney Jared PetersonConservative speech is being curtailed all over the world, but nowhere so egregiously than in Germany. Attorney Jared Peterson (amgreatness.com) joins us to discuss the tactics of the very leftist German media, plans to shut down dissenting speech, the thwarting of democracy in the German state of Thuringia, and pushback against the Left from some very unlikely sources.

American ThinkerJohn takes a moment to examine the philosophies of government and economics in regards to the ultimate success or failure of a society. He then welcomes JR Dunn (www.americanthinker.com), Consulting Editor at American Thinker, who shines a light on the confusion, uproar, contradictions, and oftentimes lack of strategy from the Left.

John’s quote of the week:
Even if we took all of the first world countries, it is impossible to take in all of the third world. The only thing you can try to do is make them prosperous in their own countries. That is where the philosophy of government and the philosophy of economics either makes or breaks a society.

On this week’s extra segment, we play a double feature from recent past on dysfunction and political correctness on college campuses, specifically with professors who don’t tow the leftist line. First, we have Robert Lopez from January 2017 followed by Michael Rectenwald from August 2018. Both share their experiences with woke colleagues and administrators.

Unfaithful Dialogue

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast

Things are going to get dicey in the next couple of years. Will you be prepared? In this week’s boralogue, John notes how there are a plethora of voices shouting predictions at us but most of them are not helpful. How do you determine what’s really going on? Know your reference points. Scripture is your moral reference but to see clearly the horizon ahead, you will need a worldview that sees reality and facts clearly and allows you to arrive at correct conclusions.

Always beware the need for dialogue. Investigative journalist and economist James Simpson (www.crisisnow.net), is back with us to discuss interfaith dialogue in the church and how it is increasingly being used to denigrate Christianity and promote other faiths. There’s a breakdown in the church and dialogue seems only to make it worse.

Can we learn from history in order not to repeat it? We welcome back author and historian Daniel Mallock (www.newenglishreview.org) who examines similarities between political machinations in the European Union today and what transpired in Germany in the 1930s. Politics, whether in Europe or in America, is no longer about issues; it’s about philosophy. And that may allow history to repeat itself.

John’s quote of the week:
Traditional Marxists have always constantly chipped away at the worth of the culture in the minds of the people. Then they can say that we’re a no-good, very bad, terrible, positively awful civilization. The dialecticians will then prance in and proclaim their idea of Marxist socialism as the answer to that.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss the underlying issues with the anti-Trump media. John then goes on to look at lawsuits against the SPLC for their shaming tactics, attempts to shut down free speech, and the rough times ahead economically for America.

Happy New Year everyone! The battle is on between traditional Judeo-Christian values and the Neo-Marxist imposter worldview of the last 70 years. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at how these Marxist values are extending beyond politics and into our churches. Many churches are falling prey to the imposter worldview which has resulted in a departure from scripture. John offers a challenge – be salt and light in the Word or close your doors.

It’s important to understand the perspective of those from the left side of the aisle. We welcome to the program progressive author and business owner Patrick Andendall (www.stupidpartyland.com), who debates with John about voter suppression, gun control, abortion, and global warming. If we don’t have discussions with those we disagree with, solutions may never be achieved.

Two weeks ago we discussed the Mueller investigation and how it has affected author and investigative journalist Jerome Corsi. Mr. Corsi (www.corsination.com) joins us this week to give a first-hand account of his interactions with and treatment from Special Counsel Robert Mueller plus his efforts to fight back against what he calls a corrupt prosecution.

John’s quote of the week:
Churches are collapsing one behind the other as millennials are moving into the church. Many millennials have been raised by secular atheist institutions and have worldviews hostile to Christianity. Churches are attempting to adjust to the hostile worldview rather than standing as a light against it.

In this week’s Section 6, we play an interview John gave with Mike LeMay last week on his show Stand Up for the Truth on Q90FM in Wisconsin. John discusses cognitive dissonance, the hypocritical nature of inclusivity, the growing problem with church leadership, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s thoughts on stupid people.

Is it possible to understand what’s really going on around the world and at the same time lower your anxiety level? In this week’s boralogue, John explains his approach to looking at any issue, always analyzing the truth of any situation and understanding how to wade through the several layers of nonsense to get at the real issue underneath. The battle is between global socialism and traditional Judeo-Christian values. Regardless of the battle or the issue, God will prevail.

Evil always rides in on the back of a white horse. Marxist policies of “equality for all” sound great but ultimately fail, costing thousands if not millions of lives. Peter Hammond (www.frontlinemissionsa.org), Founder and Director of Frontline Fellowship, discusses the South African government’s seizure of land from white farmers and how socialism has planted roots there.

Dangers exist against the U.S. from around the world but could our greatest threats originate from inside our country? Frank Hawkins (www.americanthinker.com), former U.S. Army Intelligence officer, examines several internal threats including Islamist terror strikes, suppression of speech, and of course, fake news.

John finishes off the show this week analyzing narratives and realities pertaining to geopolitics, the Middle East peace process, and situations in Germany and other areas of Europe.

John’s quote of the week:
“There has been a push toward global pantheistic socialism, which has been underway for 50-60 years. But they are now beginning to bemoan its demise because its ideals have drifted far from the reality of what is happening on the ground.”

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve look at the greater worldview implications on hot news topics including the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing and the circus it became, a new book alleging quotes from Trump officials that may or may not be true, and the controversial anonymous New York Times op-ed from an alleged senior government official.
