Special Announcement:

Due to COVID-19 quarantines now in effect, we’re publishing full-length episodes in our free SPN Podcast Network and mobile app for the next several weeks. We encourage you to stay safe throughout this difficult situation and we hope these programs provide insight and encouragement.


Sometimes you have to choose the lesser of two evils. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the devil’s choice: stay isolated and probably kill the economy or ramp up the economy and most likely extend the virus. There needs to be a threading of the needle and our leaders should put aside the urge to behave like bureaucrats and act prudently during this crisis. And it’s up to us to pray for wisdom for those leaders.

Stephen RascheThe plight of persecuted Christians very rarely gets air time in worldwide media, especially so now that we’re dealing with Covid-19. Stephen Rasche (, Vice Chancellor at the Catholic University in Erbil, Iraq, joins us to give a clear understanding of how Christians are faring in Iraq and the Middle East.

John and Carol join forces to analyze today’s new economic and political paradigm. Things are changing where it concerns politicos’ behavior in government, the validity of buying gold and silver, and how headlines and perception fuel the market’s engine more than profit statements.

Kelly SadlerInevitably, for good or bad, politics seeps into a crisis. Kelly Sadler (, Director of Policy and Communications for President Trump’s re-election campaign, examines the relief bill, attacks on the President, and helping out businesses during this rough time.

Dr. Paul WilliamsWe close out the show this week with disaster and preparedness expert Dr. Paul Williams (, who stresses the importance of being calm in an emergency, eating healthy to stave off sickness, and the power of prayer in every situation.

John’s quote of the week:
You’re watching happen now what would happen if we implemented all of the designs that we’ve heard proposed in terms of taxes and carbon credits and the reduction of industry in order to stop man-made global warming. There’s no way the economy worldwide can even think about this for the next five or ten years as it climbs out of this mess.

On this week’s extra segment, we play a triple feature of noted doctor and preparedness expert Paul Williams. From 2010 after flooding in Nashville, from 2012 following Hurricane Sandy, and from 2014 in the middle of the Ebola outbreak, Dr. Williams gives good advice on how to prepare for emergencies.

Our prayers go out to the family and friends of Father Jacques Hamel, priest of a church in Normandy, France, who was killed during mass this week by young ISIS knifemen. We skip the boralogue and welcome back to the show Juliana Taimoorazy (, President of Iraqi Christian Relief Council, who discusses other persecuted Christians: the Assyrians in Iraq who are faced with the hard choice of leaving their beloved homeland or stay and potentially face the horrors of ISIS.

We revisit a rather grisly topic this week: that of forced organ transplants. Matt Robertson (, Reporter for the Epoch Times, reveals the horrors of transplants among specific groups of people in China and the media’s lack of coverage of the practice.

Religious liberty is under attack on various fronts in violation of Constitutional rights. Kate Oliveri (, Attorney for the Thomas More Law Center, shares one woman’s encounter with a Michigan health department who denied her right to refuse vaccination for her children based on religious objections.

Are Christians in the West compromising their values to conform to modern culture? Author and speaker Os Guinness ( posits that culture and socialistic ideas are combining to threaten the faith of believers. He calls for a revolution in thought and belief from a Christian perspective.

Has the Brexit pointed the way to a resurgence in Christianity? Dr. Steve Turley (, Teacher of Theology at Tall Oaks Classical School in Delaware, discusses the growing trend toward nationalism and predicts that Christianity and the political right will usurp the unsustainable PC narrative in the next few decades.

John’s quote of the week:
“If you look at what the Social Security trustees are saying, the shortfalls in Medicare, the ricketiness of Obamacare with insurers pulling out, and the overall indebtedness of the United States, there is a major train wreck ahead. And once we get on this train, we can’t get off of it.”

As always, join us online for our Section 6 intelligence briefing featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.
