We’ll kick off the show in John’s boralogue by comparing constitutional rights with the new category of “human rights,” and explaining why this has placed the Constitution on life support. Constitutional rights are granted as being inherent or God-given, whereas human rights require one person to sacrifice constitutional rights and be forced to provide something for another person for free.

What happens when faulty science teams up with religion? Cornell University Adjunct Professor Matt Briggs (www.wmbriggs.com) explores the Vatican’s curious involvement in anthropogenic global warming along with Pope Francis’s upcoming papal encyclical on environmentalism, and how continued pressure to believe erroneous studies is damaging the scientific process and perhaps the credibility of religion.

The Obama administration has recently claimed dominion over America’s waterways, changing the current “navigable waterways” definition to “all waterways.” The interstate commerce clause of the Constitution was never intended to be tortured to this level. Mark Baird (www.soj51.net), President of northern California water rights group Scott Valley Protect Our Water, explains regulatory mismanagement in California and advocates standing up against government overreach. He relates this to the campaign to create what would be the nation’s 51st state, the State of Jefferson, from several of California’s northernmost counties.

We’re beginning a thread to examine socialist policies in South America and their relevance today to U.S. security. Russell Dallen (www.laht.com), President and Editor of the Latin American Herald Times, relates important observations of Venezuela’s poverty and economic ruin under Chavez and Maduro, and touches on Argentina’s questionable financial practices over the past decade.

We clear the decks today for an important show. This involves skipping the boralogue.

First, former U.S. Attorney General, John Ashcroft joins the program for a discussion about his new book, “Never Again, Securing America and Restoring Justice.” It’s time for hard questions about the War on Terror and the laws that have been passed to deal with it since 9/11.

The next segment examines an alarming hostility to freedom of speech on college campuses. John Zmirak is author of “All-American Colleges, Top Schools for Conservatives, Old-Fashioned Liberals and People of Faith” (www.collegeguide.org). He does a survey of trends regarding free speech on college campuses.
