Listening to the talking heads about tax transfer schemes, tax reform, tax evasion, and taxing the wealthy, is enough to cause anyone to worry. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the truth behind taxes and how they really work. When you tax something, you get less of it. Plus John dissects Al Gore’s comments from a CNN town hall meeting in our clip of the week.

President Trump gave a speech in Poland last month praising the West and all of its accomplishments. There were some, despite enjoying the benefits of Western culture, who disagreed with him. Bruce Thornton (www.fresnostate.edu), Humanities Professor at California State Fresno examines the disdain in academia and among the elites for Western culture, and digs into history to show how society based on freedom is both rare and best.

A bubble is looming in the financial markets. Can we spot the patterns that lead up to it or will it catch us by surprise yet again? George Gilder (www.discovery.org), Senior Fellow with the Discovery Institute, discusses monetary policy, how currency and markets affect everything else in society, and what to watch for in the future.

John’s quote of the week:
“The very same people that are telling you that you’re a very bad society have to doublespeak it because those people who are coming here know it’s much better here. And the people who are telling us how bad it is here, they don’t seem to want to leave either.”

This week on our Section 6 Intelligence Brief: The North Korea threat, RFID microchip identifiers, Santa Muerte in Mexico, threats to religious freedom, and a persecution update.

In pursuing news issues on a day to day basis, arriving at the truth of an issue demands filtering through mounds of arguments and counter-arguments plus downright disinformation. As long as reality can be kept at bay, even fallacious arguments survive for a long time in the media. However, when a narrative utterly collapses, it is instructive to witness how those on the wrong side of an issue handle the implosion.

So John’s extended boralogue retraces a history leading up to the Arab spring’s not-surprising collapse into winter, along with an inquiry as to why the media insist on pounding their narratives in the light of glaring contradictions.

Then we’ll see how well the World Council of Churches deals with all of this, even as they have issued a statement concerning the condition of Christians in Pakistan. Dexter van Zile from CAMERA (www.camera.org) joins us.

At the beginning of the decade we heard claims asserting that “Bush stole the election.” What if President Obama wins the popular vote in November’s election but Governor Romney wins the electoral college? Could we be headed for another constitutional or credibility crisis? Tara Ross (www.taraross.com) is an attorney and author of “Enlightened Democracy: The Case for the Electoral College.”

It’s been a year now since Occupy Wall Street, originally billed as a “day of rage,” burst upon the scene as a counterpart to the Tea Party movement. Since the news media have pounded on the dark forces supposedly inside the Tea Party, what’s the record of OWS? 7,000 arrests in over 100 cities in the country would be a good start. Matthew Vadum (www.matthewvadum.com www.capitalresearch.org) ties the history of OWS to Acorn and the radical leftist movement of the 1960s.
