What’s the difference between a hypocrite and one who fails to live up to his or her own standards? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the cover-up in the Catholic Church and how scandal and major changes seem to happen in the Church every 500 years. There’s a failure to take ownership of the sin and though an issue may be fixed, the cause of that issue remains.

America hasn’t had slavery for 150 years but it does still exist in other parts of the world. Charles Jacobs (www.peaceandtolerance.org), President of Americans for Peace and Tolerance, shows where slavery thrives today and why human rights organizations in the West are silent about it.

What happens when Mahmoud Abbas rejects whatever solution to the peace process the Trump administration proposes? Ariel Ben Solomon (www.jns.org), Deputy Online Editor at Jewish News Syndicate and a resident of Israel, describes the philosophy of Hamas when it comes to dealing with the West and how Western solutions may not work in the Middle East.

America is awful and racist and was founded on horrible precepts, so says liberal academia and modern leftists. John Zmirak (www.stream.org), Senior Editor at The Stream, shows how this progressive mindset was fractured with the election of Donald Trump, which further explains the outrage that has followed.

John and Producer Steve finish off the show this week discussing the war on free speech in America from suppressing conservative speech online to constantly accusing Right-leaning thinkers and candidates of “racism” when it in fact doesn’t exist.

John’s quote of the week:
“The real core problem we’re having is the inability to dissent in whole or in part from some of the things that are being discussed, and to offer logical and reasonable arguments. What you get back is flack, ad hominem attacks, and clichéd attacks; that’s always the mark of a losing side.”

In this week’s Section 6, we celebrate Labor Day by airing a recent interview John did with Stand Up For the Truth with Mike LeMay on Q90FM in Wisconsin. John discusses the true goals of the progressive movement, the crisis in the Roman Catholic Church, and the future of the evangelical movement.

What news from the Middle East? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and the rumors emerging as to what it might contain. How is Saudi Arabia involved? Will Mahmoud Abbas be happy? If these reports are true, he won’t be. Lesson to learn: when you refuse to participate in a process, you may end up with whatever you’re given. We’ll have to wait and see.

The transition from a Christian moral base to a far left progressive elitist state is trudging along, almost unabated. Philosophy professor and writer Jack Kerwick (www.frontpagemag.com) joins us to discuss the slow deterioration of the West, relative truth made absolute and absolute truth relativized, and the need to fight back against progressivism.

Appeasement has been a favorite tactic by leaders in the West toward brutal dictators. Chamberlain did it with Hitler; the Obama administration did it with Iran. Daniel Krygier (www.worldisraelnews.com), writer and political analyst for World Israel News, highlights the differences between one year of President Trump and eight years of the previous administration. Can our current president succeed in negotiations without appeasement?

Iran has established proxies throughout the Middle East but now there tentacles have reached the Americas. Joseph Humire (www.securefreesociety.org), Executive Director of the Center for a Secure Free Society examines Iran’s influence in Venezuela and calls on America to focus more of its foreign policy south of our borders.

Americans’ rights should be protected, especially during court cases. Christopher Holton (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Vice President for Outreach at the Center for Security Policy, describes the American Laws for American Courts, a policy that would shelter U.S. citizens in court from foreign laws and doctrines, such as sharia. Unsurprisingly, the usual antagonists are coming out against this.

John’s quote of the week:
Postmodernism is very relativistic and exists on a self-contradicting platform. However, while they are professing relativism, in reality underneath that platform they have absolutes which are undeclared.

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at the things we put our hope in and predictions for the future that haven’t panned out – like most from the climate change crowd. He goes on to cover politically correct orthodoxy, social justice warriors, and new technology that can make you say things you never have and never would.

Suicide of the West

May peace be upon you – unless you don’t want it to be. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at Mahmoud Abbas’s claim that he is cooperating with the peace process, but in fact the opposite is true. We play speeches by Abbas, Nikki Haley, and the Israeli ambassador to show that there needs to be a peace partner – not someone who refuses to sit at the table and denigrates the other side in his own language.

Logic and reason together with a free flow of ideas and debate should rule the day in society. What’s really happening, however, is quite different. Denis MacEoin (www.gatestoneinstitute.org), Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Gatestone Institute, examines the ideological inconsistencies among groups who, for example, advocate for feminism or gay rights, but who also praise Islam and Sharia law.

The suicide of the West is occurring north of our border as well. Former Canadian military intelligence officer Tom Quiggin (www.gatestoneinstitute.org) joins us to discuss bias at the Canadian Broadcast Corporation, who favors Islamic platforms and denigrates Christian ones. Hypocrisy abounds among politically correct narratives around the Western world.

John’s quote of the week:
There seems to be a hierarchy of violations that makes no sense to any logical person. They will be screaming about someone who won’t bake a wedding cake, and yet they will be absolutely mum about gays being thrown off buildings, hung, attacked, etc. It’s very strange for anyone who wonders what is going on.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss the recent Russian indictments plus John gives a persecution update, including an update on Pastor X. Don’t miss the story about a mother jailed for baptizing her daughter in North Carolina – which launches John into a brief lesson on Church history.
