In this week’s boralogue, John diverts off-script and shares his personal history. He covers his childhood, his heritage, and his experiences among many cultures throughout his life. Here in America, we are a diverse society and that is a good thing. We have to work together, remember who we are, and focus on that rather than on the division in which we find ourselves today.

Mary GrabarAmerican history in academic textbooks has shifted from fact-based events to ideology-driven narratives. Mary Grabar (www.dissidentprof.com), Fellow at the Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization, discusses how Howard Zinn spearheaded the project to change history textbooks. His primer shows how America is a horrible, awful country whose only solution is to adopt socialism. That is being taught to our children right now.

John SikkemaCanada has slid a little further down the progressive lawfare cliff than the United States. John Sikkema (www.arpacanada.ca), Legal Counsel for the Association for Reformed Political Action in Ottawa describes how, thanks to politically correct ideology, legal terms like harassment and ‘hate crimes’ are being redefined in Canada. Formerly law-abiding citizens who happen to disagree with the preferred narrative are now becoming criminals.

Ofra BengioAfter the U.S. embassy attack in Baghdad a few weeks ago, questions have arisen as to what exactly is going on in Iraq. Ofra Bengio (www.dayan.org), Senior Fellow at the Moshe Dayan Center joins us from Tel Aviv to discuss the geopolitics of Iraq, including the status with Kurdistan, the struggle to establish a unified government, and interference from Iran.

John’s quote of the week:
FBI Director Christopher Ray wrote in a letter last week that he deeply regrets the Bureau’s many errors in the process of obtaining warrants on former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page. Isn’t that cute? He apologized. Try that in court sometime if you’re convicted. ‘Yes, your honor, I murdered that man. But I apologize.’ ‘OK, you’re free to go.’ It doesn’t work that way.

On this week’s extra segment, we crank up the Way-back machine, going back 18 years to March 2002 with Dr. Dennis Cuddy and Charlotte Iserbyt, discussing the problems with No Child Left Behind, including most ironically how most children were in fact left behind.

Rule of Lawfare

Login to access this full program.

There is no absolute truth, Marxists tell us, unless of course it’s about narratives they want you to believe. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the reality behind climate change narratives, including how eliminating energy and transportation industries will lead to far more deaths than the supposed ones brought about by climate change. There is much hysterbole happening with climate change, so much so that we can’t get past the narrative to look at the truth.

The climate change battle is being waged on many fronts, including in the courtroom. Author and environmentalist Dr. Tim Ball describes his victory in a defamation lawsuit, but in the war against so-called ‘climate deniers,’ the penalty is the process as the global warming crowd uses lawfare to stifle discussion and debate.

The weaponization of justice extends beyond climate, though, and nowhere is that more evident than in the case of former Congressman Steve Stockman. His wife, conservative activist Patti Stockman (defendapatriot.com), joins us to discuss how the Obama administration targeted her husband because he spoke out against corruption.

After John describes the battle between President Trump and the Fed ahead of the 2020 election, he welcomes back to the program Vishal Mangalwadi (www.revelationmovement.com), President and Founder of the Book of the Revelation Movement. Vishal examines the origins of freedom, based on the truth of God in the Bible.

John’s quote of the week:
The global temperatures in the Middle Ages were as high as or even higher than they are now. They went down in the 1700s; that was called the Maunder Minimum. Then they started back up again, long before the introduction of carbon dioxide in large amounts into the atmosphere. This is the result preceding the cause.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play John’s latest appearance on KYMS radio where John and the host, Lee, discuss the Marxist infiltration of language in society and John gives a martyred church update.

Silence by Any Means

180017 04/28/2018

Eventually, reality becomes real and illusion fades into obscurity. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at different ways the progressive elitists are manipulating facts and, at times, using force to define the playing field in order to avoid debating. Begging the question and the heckler’s veto are two examples of the Left trying to silence dissent. The real battle is over truth and they will fight you with half-truths, incomplete truths, and even outright lies.

Environmentalist and author Tim Ball (www.drtimball.com) has been trying for years to debate the consensus thought on climate change and his detractors have used many means, including lawfare, to attempt to silence him. Dr. Ball describes his ordeal fighting three separate lawsuits meant to bankrupt him and shut him up. The assault on free speech has hit the courtroom.

One example of the heckler’s veto occurred recently in the upper Midwest when progressive groups forced conference centers to cancel already booked events. John Guandolo (www.understandingthethreat.com), President and Founder of Understanding the Threat and a speaker at one of those events, discusses how he and others had planned to educate people about Islam but certain groups didn’t want the information made public.

Have we seen this silencing of speech before? Stephen Halbrook (www.independent.org), Senior Fellow at the Independent Institute, joins us to examine the rise of the Nazi party in the 1930s and their tactics to suppress free speech and confiscate weapons. They ran into problems later, though, in France when pockets of resistance sprang up.

John’s quote of the week:
People with losing arguments – if they have to resort to logical fallacies, if they have to resort to force and heckling because their arguments can’t stand up to the other side, they only have one choice left: keep people from speaking.

In this week’s Section 6, John plays a clip of Diamond and Silk testifying before Congress and looks at different ways social media sites are trying to silence politically incorrect speech. He covers the SPLC’s history of designating hate groups and how they are scaling that back after some pushback. He finishes up with the “new liberal order” spoken about by Emmanuel Macron in his speech before Congress this week.
