In order to reform, a country and its leaders must be willing and ready to do so. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the failure of socialism in Venezuela and its creeping rise in America. Reform is needed in both countries but how that shakes out, who will relentlessly fight against it, and whether or not it will be successful remains to be seen. Reformation is a double-edged sword: hopefully America will choose the correct way to do it.

We have asked before if Islam can be reformed. This week, we seek the answer from a former Iranian Muslim who has converted to Christianity. Shahram Hadian (www.tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth in Love Project, is back with us to discuss the history of Islam, ways to combat those who shout, ‘Islamophobe!’, and how Islam is actually reforming – just backward to its origins.

Fresh from his trip to Pennsylvania, John welcomes his fellow conference presenter Pastor Robert Johnessee (www.foi.org) who is the Church Ministries Representative at the Friends of Israel. Pastor Johnessee recounts his experience with those who are trying to influence the church with PC narratives and how to bridge the gap between two ideological sides.

John finishes up the show this week giving a brief and sobering persecution update.

John’s quote of the week:
“Reformers, even though the need is obvious to many many people, meet tremendous opposition because the system and its corruption have benefited many many people. Those are the swamp critters and they love the warmth and the rottenness that corruption has brought them. They are not going to go along with reform.”

In this week’s Extras segment, we fire up the way back machine to an interview from February 2015 where John speaks with Bill Federer. He gives a history of Islam throughout the Middle East and Europe and how it has affected several key events in history.

The Kavanaugh confirmation circus is finally over. What can we learn from all of this? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the true nature of this battle: the death of judicial activism. SCOTUS may now return to correctly interpreting the Constitution. But there is a devious pattern to defeat candidates and, if they are not defeated, there is a pattern to delegitimize them and the Court. The battle may have been won, but the war is still ongoing.

John then plays a clip of Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) from the pre-allegation portion of the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing where he talks about the three legs of government and why the Supreme Court should not take on the role of Congress or be the center of politics.

John and Producer Steve sit down for a thorough postmortem on the Kavanaugh confirmation process, discussing the reasons behind the Democrats’ tactics, why presumption of innocent should be paramount, and how we bridge the gap between two sides with two very different ideologies.

No one seems to be talking about our economic future, so we have taken it upon ourselves to do just that. John examines the Trump euphoria and plays clips from Ron Paul and Dave McAlvany, who both suggest that we should learn the lessons of 2008 and watch very carefully the condition of our current economic bubble.

What is it like to walk off the Democrat plantation and promote conservatism? We welcome to the program the always entertaining real life sisters and internet sensations Diamond & Silk (www.diamondandsilkinc.com) who advocate for getting out the vote, watching their new movie, Dummycrats, and fighting hypocrisy in politics and the media.

John’s quote of the week:
Are we going to be a free society with the rights guaranteed under the Constitution of speech and religion and press and property – all of which have been under siege by judicial activism for the last 50 years – or will we go careening forward into some kind of oligarchic, progressive, socialistic dictatorship that we know from countries around the world always fails with economic and social collapse?

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at the recent market dip, anti-Semitism in Europe, the backfire of liberal tactics against Kavanaugh, and a very liberal news article, which he deconstructs. We then play an interview John gave with a local (northern Idaho) radio station, KYMS, where he and the host discussed the Pope, church history, and the latest with Christian persecution around the world.

There is actually a world outside of the Kavanaugh circus, but the media seems to only focus on the DC big top. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at geopolitics between Israel and the EU, specifically Germany and France, as well as the back and forth of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. But with all of that and more happening around the world, the mainstream media has managed to turn a 10-minute newscast into a single-issue 24-hour event.

Is another government-led land grab happening in the name of preserving history? Tom DeWeese (www.americanpolicy.org), Founder and President of the American Policy Center, describes how change agents are trying to designate private land as National Heritage Areas and how landowners are fighting back.

The liberal world order has dubious origins going back nearly a century. Mitch Wright (www.countryporch.com), Retired Coast Guard member and online business owner joins John in studio to examine how we got here, looking at Alice A. Bailey, the Arcane School, The Plan, and the Lucis Trust.

John’s quote of the week:
“The problem with the European Union and countries like France is that their commitment to their Utopian ideals is blinding them to many of the dangers they are facing. At least publicly – behind the scenes they will be asking, ‘Hey, Israelis, do you have any intelligence for us?'”

In this week’s Section 6, John defers detailed analysis on the Kavanaugh vote until next week, but he does discuss Alinsky style tactics and how people are starting to catch on to them. He goes on to discuss the future of global economics, artificial intelligence making life and death decisions, and of course, Church history and theology.
