New Year’s Eve mob attacks rocked the city of Cologne, Germany, as well as many other towns in Europe. Outrage from politicos and the media were directed not at the attackers, but in many cases at the victims! In this week’s boralogue, John takes a look at collapsing narratives of the Left and lists several lessons we should learn from the fallout. It begins with rejecting politically correct nonsense.

In light of these attacks and the inappropriate response, has Europe crossed a point of no return and lost what it means to be European? Judith Bergman (www.gatestoneinstitute.org), a writer and political activist, discusses the police and media cover-up in Germany following the attacks and concludes that European leaders’ refusal to acknowledge the problem in favor of a politically correct narrative has brought about the dissolution of Europe’s identity.

In the United States, President Obama began the year by ignoring the second amendment. Larry Pratt (www.gunowners.org), Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, examines the mental health aspect of Obama’s gun control executive action and states that in order to turn government around, we need to elect candidates who will obey and defend the Constitution.

We finish this week with two court cases, the first from Canada. Andre Schutten (www.ARPACanada.ca), Ontario Director of ARPA Canada, updates us on the status of the country’s euthanasia laws, showing that when politics is driving medicine, morals and ethics are swept away.

The second case, involving government interference, originates from Montana. Wen Fa (www.pacificlegal.org), Public Interest Attorney at the Pacific Legal Foundation, reveals that Montana’s revenue office has denied tax credit scholarships to students who wish to go to private religious schools, in complete defiance of their own state legislature.

John’s quote of the week:
“We cannot allow to happen here what is happening in Europe. And it begins with rejecting manipulative concepts such as efforts to force us to censor or self-censor speech under the guise of hate speech, micro-aggressions, or all the latest nonsense this crowd keeps cooking up and has cooked up for over half a century. The freedom of many countries in the English-speaking world actually depends upon it.”

Persecution of Christians comes from many areas of the world such as Communist nations or Islamic regimes. It is even rearing its ugly head in the West in the form of new laws and restrictions of freedom. In this week’s boralogue, John gives us the five steps that lead to persecution and shows how they are manifested in news stories from China, Great Britain, and the United States. Thank you to all our listeners who donated to help Pakistani Christian Pastor X. He still needs your support. If you would like to help, click the button to donate to Pastor X and his family.

Recently, millions of government employees had their personal online information hacked by cyber terrorists. Soon after, the military announced that their personnel’s health records would be stored online as well. Twila Brase (www.cchfreedom.org), President and Co-Founder of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom, examines the push for a national patient database, reviews the misunderstandings of HIPAA laws, and asks the question, who exactly will have access to our medical information?

President Obama would allow the Social Security Administration to have access to medical information by making sure recipients are up to the task of owning a firearm. Larry Pratt (www.gunowners.org), Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, shows that under the plan, psychiatric diagnoses can affect your eligibility to own a gun. It’s an ultimatum between owning a gun and receiving benefits. With a choice like that, the Constitution is bypassed and the government wins.

It is winner take all as one right is trumped by another in the wake of recent Supreme Court decisions on same sex marriage and eminent domain. Brian Walsh (www.civilrightsresearch.org), President and Founder of the Civil Rights Research Center, discusses the trampling of freedom of religion and shows the correlation between government persecution of Christians and increase in social hostility toward religion. I may not agree with what you say and it turns out I won’t defend your right to say it either!

The bloat of government has gotten out of control, but the Founding Fathers gave us a way to fix the problem. Patrick Murray (www.gopatrickmurray.com), Retired U.S. Army Colonel, reviews Article 5 of the Constitution and reveals a plan underway to convene a Convention of States. Two amendments are proposed: Congressional term limits and a balanced budget.

Political Correctness is Really Killing Us Now

In the light of the latest controversy over employment numbers, John’s boralogue explains why the government and Federal Reserve have vested interests in fudging their official numbers. He runs a clip from John Williams at Shadow Government Statistics (www.shadowstats.com) to explain why the jobs numbers aren’t connected to the real world.

Financial observers seem to be living dual lives. On one hand, they see a series of train wrecks coming. On the other, they keep trying to make plans as if life were going to continue without serious bumps. So whither the dichotomy? Let’s use an example.

Suppose the government stopped deficit spending today and we soak the rich to pay off our debt, how long would it take to pay it all off? The answer is staggering. The average household would still have to fork up $3,500 a year into the far distant future. In essence, we’re going to have to carry it forever and just service the interest payments. Boy that will keep you up at night. Matthew Jensen guests from the American Enterprise Institute (www.aei.org).

The global security situation continues to deteriorate but political correctness prevents us from speaking directly to the issues we face. As we’ve said, PC thinking kills people because it deludes them into thinking they’re safe when they’re not. Frank Gaffney from the Center for Security Policy (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org) joins the show for a spirited conversation on the global goals of Islam as well as the Iranian situation.

Larry Pratt from Gun Owners of America gives an update on the Fast and Furious scandal and fatality numbers in both Mexico and the U.S. (gunowners.org)
