Case Dismissed: Qualified Immunity

Login to access this full program.

What can we learn from the occupation of the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle? In this week’s boralogue, John points out glaring contradictions with the new autonomous enclave, including their border wall, border guards with guns, and the need for an ID – all things leftists and this group has fought against for years. The reason these things work is because we have learned from history, but it’s the same history these folks want to tear down.

Has qualified immunity, created with good intentions, been abused like civil asset forfeiture? Mark Miller (www.pacificlegal.org), Senior Attorney at the Pacific Legal Foundation, joins us to give the pros and cons of qualified immunity and discuss the balance between holding law enforcement accountable and allowing them to do their work without fear of being prosecuted.

John then wades into the issue of all lives mattering, showing that in order to claim that any life matters, there must be a moral foundation behind it.

Antifa has reared its ugly head during recent rioting and looting, but what is the history of this group? Kyle Shideler (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Director for Homeland Security and Counter-terrorism at the Center for Security Policy, examines the background of Antifa, their tactics in hijacking a movement, and what their real aim is for this country.

Finally we welcome another attorney from Pacific Legal Foundation, Daniel Ortner (www.pacificlegal.org), who shows that allowing bureaucrats to determine what content is allowed online could lead to speech suppression, regardless of who is in power. People should be allowed to hear both sides of an issue and then decide for themselves what to believe.

New Year Turning

Login to access this full program.


160053 12/31/2016

The year is coming to a close and 2016 has seen a major shift in geopolitics. In this week’s boralogue, John shows that we are entering a fourth turning crisis and explains how this can happen either democratically or via a strongman. Both options have their pros and cons. New Year’s is a time of renewal and change. How will that happen? Stay tuned.

Who is Vladimir Putin and how did he come to power? David Satter (www.hudson.org), Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute examines the history of Russia’s president and what U.S.-Russia relations may look like between presidents Putin and Trump.

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has tenuous ties to Hamas. Kyle Shideler (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Director of Threat Information at the Center for Security Policy explores these connections and shows that political correctness in the U.S. has resulted in problems both in the media and at the FBI.

Finally, we round out the year with a conversation on economics. Jim Puplava (www.financialsense.com), President of Puplava Financial Services joins us to discuss changes in geopolitics over the past few years, the current financial paradigm shift, and future economic trends.

John’s quote of the week:
“Remember as we open the new year that governments come and go, cycles come and go and repeat as people try to create utopia on earth. But there is a time coming which scripture promises will be a utopia led by Jesus Christ, the King of kings.”

Our Section 6 intelligence brief is on holiday hiatus but we will return in 2017 with more analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.
