Are we seeing a trend toward online censorship, mostly of conservative speech? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the fake news media and different examples of trial balloons being floated to test the censorship waters. The battle for freedom is underway in the West and it is embodied in the battle against free speech.

Do persecuted Christians receive the proper treatment when seeking asylum? Ken Timmerman (www.iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, discusses his new book, ISIS Begins, a work of fiction that describes the real life interactions between Christians and the UN and how Muslims seeking asylum are treated far better.

Has there ever been a President more maligned than Donald Trump? Robert Spencer (www.jihadwatch.org), Director of Jihad Watch is back with us to show that another U.S. President was also treated as a bumpkin, an outsider to politics, and was disliked by both parties. The identity of that President may surprise you.

We revisit the topic of online censorship with Brian McNicoll (www.aim.org), Editor at Accuracy in Media who shows examples of speech suppression on Facebook and Twitter and discusses what can be done about it.

With great division in this country, are we headed for a second Civil War? Historian and novelist H.W. “Harry” Crocker III (www.regnery.com), shows how people from both sides in the 1860s were very similar in beliefs, unlike now where there is a deep ideological divide. The outrage and battles waged by the Left today could end up throwing us into a new Civil War.

John’s quote of the week:
What the Left doesn’t understand is: they think they’re going to come back into power at some point and then they’re going to declare war. The Right has been patient for a very long time. They have witnessed the shenanigans that have gone on both pre- and post-election. The Right will not tolerate that anymore.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss the origin of fake news, how media outlets manipulate words to create a narrative, and the nature of censorship.

Coup de Tehran

Is it possible to have a newsworthy protest without violence and the shouting down of opponents? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at a protest in Sacramento earlier this month where thousands of people rallied against a bill that would have hindered homeschool parents’ ability to teach their children. The protest was peaceful and stood in stark contrast to the violence of Antifa rallies. But unlike with Antifa, there was a virtual media blackout in Sacramento.

Plus, in our clip of the week, John analyzes President Trump’s remarks ending the so-called Iran Deal and the aftermath of those comments.

Leading up to President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran Deal, Israel pulled off a massive coup in Tehran. Ken Timmerman (www.iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, looks at Mossad’s operation to steal thousands of documents proving Iran’s nuclear program is still active and discusses President Trump’s battle with globalist elites.

Continuing our series on the heckler’s veto, we welcome Chris Gaubatz (www.understandingthethreat.com), Executive Vice President at Understanding the Threat, who examines free speech versus sharia law and how civilization jihad is happening all around us while most of us are unaware of its existence.

Revenue to the government may be up, but spending is out of control. Steve Levine (www.axios.com), Future Editor at online news magazine Axios, shows how millennials will be paying long into the future for the economic misdeeds of today. If we’re going to solve the problem, we need to start talking about possible solutions as soon as possible.

Finally, we welcome Tammi Rossman-Benjamin (www.amchainitiative.org), Director of the AMCHA Initiative, who analyzes anti-Semitism on college campuses and points out the hypocrisy of people who praise tolerance and decry hatred, but who are nothing but intolerant and hateful.

John’s quote of the week:
Which group of people would you rather listen to: those who can present rational, quiet arguments for their position in a respectful way, or those who shout down with irrationality and unreason anyone who opposes them, chanting cheap clichés which say absolutely nothing? If you’re a sane person, the answer is pretty simple.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss the following: an ongoing effort to subvert the electoral college system in favor of the popular vote, the prospect of the U.S. becoming the world’s top exporter of oil, and an interesting twist in the Robert Mueller saga.

Iran So Far Away

Comments from a closed door meeting were all the rage in the news this week. But is it really important? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the underlying issues inside of – shall we say – outhouse countries and the importance of assimilation for those who immigrate here. Why are the media spending so much time dissecting comments and ignoring the real issue of what’s happening in these countries?

In our clip of the week, Dr. Ze’ev Maghen, Chair of Middle Eastern History at Bar-Ilan University in Israel, speaks about the Iran protest as well as Sunnis and Shias in Iran and the Muslim world.

Since the media won’t cover the Iranian protests, we’ll talk with someone who will. Ken Timmerman (www.iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran joins us to discuss how these protests are different from those in 1979 and 2009 and why the powers that be in the West seem to favor the regime.

Did conservative social media sites have an impact on the 2016 election? John Hawkins (www.rightwingnews.com), head of Right Wing News online, believes they did and now the social media giants are doing all they can to ban or otherwise impede the free speech and outreach of conservative accounts and pages.

Jesus said that Christians would not be popular with culture, but progressives within the church are trying to move Christian thought toward popularity. Author and retired cold-case homicide detective J. Warner Wallace (www.casemakersacademy.com) advocates for stronger teaching of traditional Biblical principles and preparing our youth to defend their faith in secular society and in the church.

Finally, John takes a look at the history of fake news and how we arrived at the somewhat dysfunctional mainstream press we have today. There is a war on freedom of speech and we are all – media and consumers alike – fighters in that war.

John’s quote of the week:
Your religious worldview base will establish your ethics and your morals, which establishes what you view in terms of law, in terms of economics, and in terms of society. You can’t separate these things out – they are all one.

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at globalist history and the tactics they use, which explains their hatred toward Donald Trump who fights against them. He goes on to discuss the change in global temperatures away from heating and how the alarmists are pushing us in the wrong direction. Minority unemployment is down – how much of that is attributable to the President? Finally, John examines Christian persecution and no-go zones in Sweden.

Geopolitics, Education, and History

We packed the program this weekend with informative interviews, with a focus on geopolitics for the first part of the program.

Although China is hailed as an economic powerhouse, it has serious monetary and population problems, which will affect its approach to the approaching geopolitical storms. Ken Timmerman (www.kentimmerman.com) and John discuss the proposal that the U.S. drop its support of Taiwan in exchange for a debt write-off. The Chinese may not be able to do that.

Then we’ll jump to the Middle East for a summary report by correspondent Dave Dolan (www.ddolan.com), author of a new book entitled, “Millennium, the Lord Reigns.”

During his State of the Union address this week, President Barack Obama said states should require mandatory school attendance until age 18. But kids drop out because they are unchallenged in bad public schools due to a failed curriculum, which never comes up in the conversation. William Estrada from Home School Legal Defense (www.hslda.org) tells why this will cause more problems than it solves.

This week marked the 67th anniversary of the liberation of inmates from Auschwitz Concentration Camp. The appalling lack of historical knowledge among young people threatens freedom in the future. Ray Comfort (www.180movie.com) joins us to discuss his new movie, “180.”

John’s boralogue focuses on the chasm between what Republican debate media hosts think are important issues versus the real crises America is about to face. It’s like night and day.
