Case Dismissed: Qualified Immunity

Login to access this full program.

What can we learn from the occupation of the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle? In this week’s boralogue, John points out glaring contradictions with the new autonomous enclave, including their border wall, border guards with guns, and the need for an ID – all things leftists and this group has fought against for years. The reason these things work is because we have learned from history, but it’s the same history these folks want to tear down.

Has qualified immunity, created with good intentions, been abused like civil asset forfeiture? Mark Miller (www.pacificlegal.org), Senior Attorney at the Pacific Legal Foundation, joins us to give the pros and cons of qualified immunity and discuss the balance between holding law enforcement accountable and allowing them to do their work without fear of being prosecuted.

John then wades into the issue of all lives mattering, showing that in order to claim that any life matters, there must be a moral foundation behind it.

Antifa has reared its ugly head during recent rioting and looting, but what is the history of this group? Kyle Shideler (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Director for Homeland Security and Counter-terrorism at the Center for Security Policy, examines the background of Antifa, their tactics in hijacking a movement, and what their real aim is for this country.

Finally we welcome another attorney from Pacific Legal Foundation, Daniel Ortner (www.pacificlegal.org), who shows that allowing bureaucrats to determine what content is allowed online could lead to speech suppression, regardless of who is in power. People should be allowed to hear both sides of an issue and then decide for themselves what to believe.

Tolerance and inclusivity are great things – until they aren’t. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at hypocrisy from the Left, comparing reactions after the Arlington baseball field shooting with those following the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. Everything we have been told by progressive elites for the past three decades about tolerance and equality have been ignored and violated by the very same progressives in recent years.

Globalists are always lurking around every corner, pulling the strings on societal issues. We welcome back historian and Former Senior Associate at the Department of Education Dr. Dennis Cuddy (www.newswithviews.com) who not only discusses the deep state’s ties to globalism and the history of corruption with the one-world movement, but also predicts where the globalists are taking us and when that will happen.

The Muslim month of Ramadan is coming to a close and it has been one of the most violent in history. Shahram Hadian (www.tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth In Love Project and a former Muslim draws on his expertise of Islam to explain what the Koran says about Ramadan as well as the real facts about sharia law and how it is not compatible with the U.S. Constitution.

John’s quote of the week:
“This elite progressive group in the last 30 months has violated every single standard they have ever preached at us regarding tolerance, diversity, inclusivity, equality, hate speech, etc. They do not believe what they have preached. When it comes to the elections in 2018 and 2020, this group has demonstrated that they are singularly unfit to lead a nation such as ours.”

This week during our Section 6 Intelligence Briefing, John discusses travel tips, fiscal irresponsibility, Marxism in the Christian and Jewish church, and the danger of PC think.

150017 04/25/2015

Ethiopian Christians were killed by ISIS this week in Libya. Could that butchery be headed across the Atlantic? We jump into the fray this week with Chris Farrell (www.judicialwatch.org), Director of Investigations & Research for Judicial Watch. He discusses the legitimacy of ISIS staging areas a few miles across the U.S.-Mexico border near Juarez.

Expanding on this, Retired INS Special Agent Michael Cutler (www.michaelcutler.net) rejoins us on the program and uncovers critical problems with immigration procedures. ISIS on our southern borders is a serious issue, but terrorists have already set up shop inside the U.S., thanks in part to questionable enforcement policies.

We hear “Bush lied, people died.” Do we hear the same about Hilary Clinton when it comes to Benghazi? Daniel Greenfield (www.frontpagemag.com), Shillman Journalism Fellow with the David Horowitz Freedom Center, examines the Libyan war and looks at anti-U.S. bias from the left that is designed to weaken America and give strength to its enemies.

This past Sunday, April 19, marked the 20th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. Even after two decades, there are questions that remain unanswered. Independent researcher Dr. Wendy Painting (www.lonewolfresearch.com) explores not only the theory that Timothy McVeigh acted as a lone wolf terrorist, but also the possibility that undercover government agents were involved.

Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!

Join us for our Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week, John takes an extensive look at the background of Islam, the differences between Shia and Sunni sects, and the current proxy wars involving Islamic countries.

Oklahoma City: What the Investigation Missed

Login to access this full program.

 

120024 06/16/2012

It’s been 17 years since the disaster at the Murrah Office Building in Oklahoma City. Do we really know everything about the disaster or did the investigation deliberately spike some facts to protect a number of intelligence failures. Roger Charles is author of the book, “Oklahoma City, What the Investigation Missed and Why It Matters.”

We’re often talking about cutting programs, but what about organizations such as Planned Parenthood that receive thousands of dollars of government support but could stand on its own feet financially. “Planned” is a misnomer since the majority of pregnant women who go to the centers wind up aborting their children. Chris Slattery is founder of Expectant Mother Care Frontline Pregnancy Centers in the Northeast.

John’s boralogue centers on the diminishing level of freedom we’re experiencing as we plow through a series of crises with the promise that if we just relinquish more freedom the crises will be solved. But they’re not.

Al Qaeda’s Connection to Oklahoma City

As the War on Terror’s gun sights shift rapidly towards Iran and the who-knew-what-about-whichever intelligence debate continues, few seem to notice evidence surfacing about Iran’s complicity with Islamic terrorism would have been great in supporting the Bush administration’s claims about Iraq’s involvement with terrorism. So why wasn’t it used? Because it would have opened too many closets with skeletons in Washington going all the way back through the Clinton administration. This one implicates both administrations.

Oklahoma City’s award-winning television reporter Jayna Davis (www.jaynadavis.com), author of “The Third Terrorist:  The Middle Eastern Connection to the Oklahoma City Bombing,” joins us for this important show.

John’s boralogue reveals some interesting quotes from Bush administration insiders showing they intended to attack Iraq long before 9/11, which provided the “Pearl Harbor event” (their words) as a pretext to do so.
