Dr. Os Guinness is author of “The Global Public Square: Religious Freedom and the Making of a World Safe for Diversity.” Dr. Guinness is our first guest, where he maintains that freedom of thought, speech, and conscience are under fire, and that freedom itself stands or falls with these traditional rights.

What can we learn from disasters? It’s ironic how those preparing for possible disasters are often demeaned as extremist “preppers,” especially when the country is awash (pardon the pun) examples of floods and other disasters where the prepared fared much better than those who weren’t. Notice the recent floods in Colorado. Sheri Fink is author of “Five Days at Memorial, Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital,” which portrays the complete breakdown of services in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina and why thinking about disasters is essential.

As socialized healthcare spirals towards its inevitable rendezvous with failure, Christians will have to be taking care of their elderly; but they’re singularly unprepared to do so and unaware of what that entails. Dick Lane (afterthecaretaker.blogspot.com) is author of “Folie a Deux: A Madness Shared by Two.” Dick spent ten years caring for his father with Alzheimer’s. For Kindle: (www.amazon.com/folie-deux)

John’s boralogue examines the collapsing narrative of man-made global warming as a dire crisis requiring immense amounts of money. Important here is dissecting what happens when worldviews collapse, and how efforts are made to prop up even failing systems.

To Attack or Not Attack: An Iranian Winter?

Notice the long-running speculation about an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities is ramping up to a fevered media pitch. John’s extended boralogue kicks off with a thorough update on the Iranian situation.

Then we’ll be joined by former CIA Director James Woolsey, current head of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (www.defenddemocracies.org), who furthers that analysis.

This week former Colorado Senator Gary Hart penned an op ed piece in the Huffington Post comparing Islamic intolerance for Christians with the religious right in America. John comments on the senator’s ideas and then James Heiser comes on board from the New American (www.thenewamerican.com) to discuss the philosophical underpinnings for such a piece.

We’ll hear the latest exchange between Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, and then swing over to that good old favorite, the ongoing controversy about man-made global warming. The media have ignored a major scandal where leaked emails stolen from global warming skeptics turned out to be bogus. Joseph Bast, president of the Heartland Institute (www.heartland.org), is the last guest on the program today.
