John Loeffler: Changing the ‘No’ Status Quo

Login to access this full program.

 

It’s always important to remember that reality always becomes real. But often we are blind to what’s really going on because the media choose to focus on unimportant things. Not so with us. In today’s boralogue, John looks at the results of the Israel-UAE peace deal which was brought about largely due to a change in the philosophy among Middle East peace narratives. After years of Palestinian leadership refusing to negotiate, the new strategy is to apprehend reality and upend the status quo. This has brought about alliances no one could predict, but once the old paradigm assumptions were removed, it became obvious those alliances were actually needed.

We remember the 9/11 victims and their families who suffered 19 years ago today when reality became all too real in New York, DC, Pennsylvania, and across America. Our prayers are with them.

Ship of Fools in Socialist Waters

Login to access this full program.

The Deal of the Century – the new Israeli-Palestinian peace plan – has been proposed, but what is the hang up? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the need for a viable peace partner. He shows how both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas have not exhibited a willingness over the years to work toward peace with Israel. Whether or not they cooperate, the peace train may soon leave the station. And Palestinian leadership may wish they would have boarded.

Gerard LameiroSocialism has never been successfully implemented simply because it can’t be. Author and political forecaster Gerard Lameiro (www.greatnewsforamerica.com) is back with us to discuss several examples of failed socialist governments and how it only stays afloat when capitalism supports it behind the scenes. He also gives his predictions for the 2020 election and the future of the Democrat Party.

Howard HusockSocialism isn’t the only example of government interference and dysfunction. Howard Husock (www.civilsocietyawards.com), Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, describes how federal dollars from our government have changed the character of local civil organizations away from grassroots values and serving the community.

Andrea Picotti-BayerSeparation of church and state has been overused in legal arguments and somewhat misunderstood overall. We round out the show this week with Andrea Picciotti-Bayer (www.thecatholicassociation.org), Legal Advisor for the Catholic Association, who examines the Blaine Amendment in relation to public funding for Catholic schools.

John’s quote of the week:
What happens with socialism is you have big amounts of money, bureaucrats see it, they use giving to XYZ impoverished group as the rationale for taking it. They then seize the money, usually through taxation or other means. They take a huge chunk for themselves. Then they pass along a fraction of what they’ve seized and give it to the target group. That’s the immorality of the system.

On this week’s extra segment, we play a double feature on the European Union from days of Steel past. First up is Robert Congdon from February 2012 followed by Pat Caddell from June 2018. Both give predictions about the future of the EU and it’s interesting to see the difference in opinions that six years makes.

Israel Turns 70

Important geopolitical changes are happening in the Middle East and while the mainstream media won’t focus on them, we will. In this week’s boralogue, John focuses his Middle East review on Saudi Arabia and their alliances, policies, and enemies. He also looks at the Palestinian Authority and their refusal to consider any peace plan solution from the Trump administration.

This week marks the 70th anniversary on the Jewish calendar of the establishment of the State of Israel. We welcome back Dan Gordon, Captain in the Israel Defense Forces Reserves, who describes his firsthand account of Israel’s constant defense of its sovereignty and shows the differences between what’s really happening in the Middle East versus what the mainstream media is reporting.

President Trump is changing the status quo through his policies and strategies, but his detractors absolutely can’t stand it. Ben Weingarten (www.benweingarten.com), Founder and CEO of ChangeUp Media, discusses President Trump’s mandate with the America people and his innovative, though reported as controversial, strategies with both North Korea and the Middle East.

John’s quote of the week:
There are geopolitical changes underway that are waiting out there to strike us and our media are focused on what is happening with the internal political battles – notably the Darn Trump movement – that they are not observing all of the cycles and trends that are happening.

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at the recent Southwest Airlines engine explosion and the unfortunate death of the passenger. Then, John and Producer Steve review a few crazy stories from the state of California.

The Future of Church/State Conflict

Login to access this full program.

120048 12/01/2012

John’s extended boralogue opens the show with a conflict between ideology and reality in vogue among the West’s politicians. This conflict can be seen all the way from economics to religious freedom issues. If we learn one thing from history, it’s that few seem to learn from anything history and the rest of us are force to watch them repeat it.

This thought flows directly to our first guest. George Weigel, is Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center (www.eppc.org). George has been tracking the Catholic Church’s conflict with the Obama administration in its contraception fight and outlines future options as these church/state conflicts become more common.

From there we shift focus to Canada for a comparison of similar battles. Mike Schouten represents We Need a Law, a Canadian pro-life group (www.weneedalaw.ca).

This week the Palestinian Authority made it over a major hurdle toward full statehood recognition at the United Nations, a small but noisy group of evangelicals is attempting to shift the views and theology of that group to an anti-Israel position. Malcolm Lowe in Jerusalem is with the Gatestone Institute (www.gatestoneinstitute.org).
