How do we define the terms of any battle? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the weaponization of language when it comes to political and cultural battles, looking back at the Third Reich and the Spanish Inquisition to compare to the tactics of social justice warriors today. Free speech and open discussion of ideas are what we have now. We need to stand up against those who would take those freedoms away.

Immigration is at the top of every news cycle today, but are we getting the whole truth about who’s coming here? Todd Bensman (www.cis.org), Senior National Security Fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies, reveals the truth about where those who are coming from South America are actually from and discusses the similarities and differences between Europe’s and America’s approach to handling the migrant crisis.

Is there another Reformation on the horizon for the Catholic Church? John Zmirak (www.stream.org), Senior Editor at The Stream returns to examine the controversies surrounding the current Pope and the need for reform now that socialist ideas seem to be taking hold within the Church.

What is the difference between justice and social justice? Mark Hendrickson (www.visionandvalues.org), Economic Professor at Grove City College, joins us to discuss how government should ideally function and then how it would function should social justice warriors and the PC elites take over.

John finishes up the program this week reviewing several news stories, including the government shutdown, our growing debt problem, and the ability to exercise free speech when it comes to politically correct issues.

John’s quote of the week:
“Intersectionality is an effort to make appear logical that which is fundamentally illogical. They are trying to put it in some kind of order where they can contain the irrational chaos.”

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview from August 2015 with Dan Gordon regarding the similarities between terror tunnels under the Israel-Gaza border and those under the U.S.-Mexico border.

What are the massive gorillas in the room that no one is talking about? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the murder of Jamal Khashoggi as well as the caravan marching north through Mexico. There are narratives in those stories and others that are drowning out the truth. When truth becomes a casualty and we can’t discuss what’s really going on, the freedoms of America that so many are marching toward may soon diminish.

Is it possible to have a real, fact-based conversation about climate and carbon taxes? Climate alarmists don’t want to talk about it, but we will. Dr. Tim Ball (www.drtimball.com), Chief Science Advisor at the International Climate Science Coalition, joins us to discuss how most climate data isn’t measured correctly and how carbon taxes will not achieve the goals set by their proponents.

Should property owners have a right to defend themselves in court against government agencies? Christina Martin (www.pacificlegal.org), Attorney at Pacific Legal Foundation, describes how one of her clients was denied access to federal court after a state agency declared part of her property open to the public.

Is there a link between organ donation and euthanasia? Wesley Smith (www.discovery.org), Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute, shows how doctors in other countries are removing viable organs from live patients for harvesting and how many medical professionals are now given the choice between administering euthanasia to a patient they are there to heal or losing their medical license.

John’s quote of the week:
“Do you really think we’ve had a fair climate change debate – the debate that Al Gore declared closed? No, it’s never been held. And in those few cases where small localized debates have been held, the climate alarmists are losing.”

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve comment on listener emails and discuss the Jamal Khashoggi murder and cover up, President Trump’s modus operandi when it comes to treaties and accords, and Steve briefly tries on a tin foil hat while speculating on the spate of suspicious packages sent to left-leaning politicians (and CNN) this week.
