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.

Is it possible to have a newsworthy protest without violence and the shouting down of opponents? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at a protest in Sacramento earlier this month where thousands of people rallied against a bill that would have hindered homeschool parents’ ability to teach their children. The protest was peaceful and stood in stark contrast to the violence of Antifa rallies. But unlike with Antifa, there was a virtual media blackout in Sacramento.

Plus, in our clip of the week, John analyzes President Trump’s remarks ending the so-called Iran Deal and the aftermath of those comments.

Leading up to President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran Deal, Israel pulled off a massive coup in Tehran. Ken Timmerman (www.iran.org), President and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran, looks at Mossad’s operation to steal thousands of documents proving Iran’s nuclear program is still active and discusses President Trump’s battle with globalist elites.

Continuing our series on the heckler’s veto, we welcome Chris Gaubatz (www.understandingthethreat.com), Executive Vice President at Understanding the Threat, who examines free speech versus sharia law and how civilization jihad is happening all around us while most of us are unaware of its existence.

Revenue to the government may be up, but spending is out of control. Steve Levine (www.axios.com), Future Editor at online news magazine Axios, shows how millennials will be paying long into the future for the economic misdeeds of today. If we’re going to solve the problem, we need to start talking about possible solutions as soon as possible.

Finally, we welcome Tammi Rossman-Benjamin (www.amchainitiative.org), Director of the AMCHA Initiative, who analyzes anti-Semitism on college campuses and points out the hypocrisy of people who praise tolerance and decry hatred, but who are nothing but intolerant and hateful.

John’s quote of the week:
Which group of people would you rather listen to: those who can present rational, quiet arguments for their position in a respectful way, or those who shout down with irrationality and unreason anyone who opposes them, chanting cheap clichés which say absolutely nothing? If you’re a sane person, the answer is pretty simple.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss the following: an ongoing effort to subvert the electoral college system in favor of the popular vote, the prospect of the U.S. becoming the world’s top exporter of oil, and an interesting twist in the Robert Mueller saga.

With our two major party candidates set for this November’s presidential election, silly season has begun. In this week’s boralogue, John reminds us that politics is a blood sport and facts and reason are usually thrown out of the window in favor of soundbites. A day of reckoning approaches and while most people ignore the warning signs, whoever wins the upcoming election will be the one we chose to deal with it.

Our system of government was created as a series of checks and balances. What happens when one branch begins overstepping its authority? Dr. John Sparks (www.visionandvalues.org), Retired Dean at Grove City College, looks at the recent Supreme Court case involving abortion clinics in Texas and discusses the continuous onslaught of right trumping, being brought to you by the highest court in the land.

Next we play a brief clip from the Financial Sense Newshour of write-in presidential candidate and economist Laurence Kotlikoff (www.kotlikoff.net) explaining the real, and much higher, numbers behind our national debt.

Refugee crises have erupted in a number of countries, largely due to radical Islamists and the violence they perpetrate. But what about Christian refugees who are caught up in the crisis? Author and political pundit Joseph Klein (www.frontpagemag.com) looks at the problems Christians are facing in refugee camps and the Obama administration’s apparent disregard for Christians in favor of admitting more Muslim refugees.

Finally, we revisit the topic of gold and silver with precious metals aficionado Dave Morgan (www.silver-investor.com) who predicts as currencies begin to falter, gold and silver will make a comeback. He also examines what the powers that be may have in store when the financial catastrophe hits.

John’s quote of the week:
“Governments may not get through times like these but people like you and I always do. If we know what’s happening, we can pray and ask God to show us our way through the tsunami waves to come and we can help each other.”

As always, join us online for our Section 6 intelligence briefing featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.
