With crazy stories inundating us every day, how did we get to this point? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at history from the protests of the 1960s through the blossoming of the internet age to where we are now with late-term abortion laws and media people not living up to journalistic standards. There are those who are tired of being choked by political correctness and they are fighting back.

If we’re not careful, the socialistic healthcare system in Canada could make its way south. Author and retired businessman William Gairdner (www.williamgairdner.ca) joins us from the Great White North to discuss the costs and rules of free healthcare for all and how some, usually the well-connected, get around those rules.

The Pope just signed an agreement with Sheik Ahmad el-Tayeb, the grand imam of al-Azhar. Author and Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim (www.raymondibrahim.com) contrasts the watered-down language of the agreement with the Sheik’s speeches about it in Arabic. He also dissects the media and liberal adoration of Islam and the Pope.

Is the national emergency declaration on the border wall a good idea? It depends on who you ask. Dr. Merrill Matthews (www.ipi.org), Resident Scholar with the Institute for Policy Innovation, examines partisan hypocrisy over the execution of emergency declarations and what that may mean for the future.

John’s quote of the week:
“The education system is broken; it’s being run by the people who broke it. But they actively, aggressively oppose any kind of reform which would fix it. Yet these same politicians send their kids to private schools. They don’t want to put themselves in the very system they’re smashing down on everyone else.”

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview John gave last week on Stand Up For The Truth with Mike LeMay on Q90FM in Wisconsin (standupforthetruth.com). John and Mike discuss political correctness in both society and the Church as well as the increase of being a victim and how it has become a badge of honor, and the best ways to get back on track with Christianity in the west.

Buy Worldview Wars 5 hour Lecture SeriesWhat is the nature of truth, and why can’t many Christians adequately defend their faith? Why and how is Christianity being marginalized in the public marketplace of ideas? Is there a carefully planned and executed agenda running to wipe out the Christian faith and those who assert absolute truth? We address all these questions and more in this four part series.

John Loeffler analyzes the history, strategies, and weaknesses of the competing worldviews of the 19th and 20th century. Philosophers such as Rousseau, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Darwin, Nietzsche, Marx, and Dewey have radically altered western culture through postmodernism, values relativism and dialectical consensus. They have modern-day followers who are bent on destroying the very foundations of Western society.

Identify the moving parts of your worldview and gain insight into these opposing ideologies.  You have a mission to discern the truth. What is truth? Truth is simply: “that which pertains to reality“. Reality is that great equalizer and when reality becomes real there’s no room left for excuses.

Value Added Constitution

180027 07/07/2018

Will the ideas and freedoms our Founding Fathers established in July 1776 continue to stand or will it morph into something unrecognizable? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at how the First Amendment is being used to protect speech from some people but is being pummeled in relation to others’ speech. When they agree, speech is free. When they don’t, it’s not. The freedoms in the Constitution must stand for our country to remain standing.

A debate has sprung up about court decisions and how values should be incorporated into them. But who determines society’s values? Caroline Lewis (www.carolineclewis.com), writer and owner of Percipio Communications, points out the hypocrisy of those who say laws don’t matter but then want you to live by their laws when they finally enact them.

Will Islam ever reform toward modernity? Dr. Zhudi Jasser (www.aifdemocracy.org), President and Founder of American Islamic Forum for Democracy, defines Islamic precepts and sharia law and asks: how do we push past political correctness and start truly discussing the important issues?

Can education be reformed in order to be fair to all students, regardless of race? Horace Cooper (www.nationalcenter.org), Chairman of the Project 21 National Advisory Board, advocates for a move away from government and bureaucracy and toward family, morality, and school choice. Only then can problems truly be solved.

We finish this week with author and Executive Editor at Tor/Forge Books Robert Gleason who discusses danger within some countries’ nuclear programs, including a fictional account from his new book – one that could become true if we’re not careful.

John’s quote of the week:
The problem with hate speech laws is that the determination of what is and what is not hate is a value judgment that’s very hard to quantify or qualify in law. How do you know when you’re violating this law or when you’re not?

Section 6 is taking a week off to recover from celebrating our nation’s 242nd birthday. But it will return next week for more in-depth analysis of today’s global stories.

Featured Product: DVD – Shall Not Have Died in Vain – 48 min.

Delivered as a special address on Memorial Day 2015, at Candlelight Christian Fellowship. John poses the Shall Not Have Died in Vain – 48 min.question: “Did all the brave men and women who gave their lives for the freedoms we enjoy, die in vain?” What has divided our country since before the Civil War, and widened the rift in recent decades?

How can we redeem our freedoms and ensure the God-given liberty our founders intended for generations to come? This may be one of the most important speeches of John’s career as he lays out where we’ve come from as a nation and what’s needed to regain our republic.

What an Outrage!

180026 06/30/2018

What is the outrage du jour? With so many protests popping up and fading away, it’s hard to keep track of what people are mad about. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the importance of watching what is not said and done as an indicator of an ourager’s motivations. Outrage only spreads outrage – it has no solutions or plans other than intense indignation. So what is the true purpose? Obstruction to the current administration – nothing more.

Outrage is everywhere, mostly against Trump supporters and members of his Cabinet. Why is it happening and is there another motive behind it? Author and Townhall.com columnist Derek Hunter (www.townhall.com) joins us to discuss what’s really behind the outrage, how dangerous it’s likely to become, and what, if anything, can be done about it.

John and Producer Steve go through recent Supreme Court decisions regarding President Trump’s travel ban, pregnancy centers and abortions, and internet sales taxes, as well as touch on the reactions from those who disagree with these decisions.

Outrage stems in large part from political correctness. Where did the concept of PC originate? Richard Hawkins (www.thetruthproject.org), Leader of Focus on the Family’s Truth Project, examines the Frankfurt School and the efforts to undermine the family, indoctrinate children, and revise the history of Western civilization.

John’s quote of the week:
Remember that the fight now is not just over truth. It is also over whether or not the Constitution – in the Union so conceived, as Abraham Lincoln said, which was founded in the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776 – is going to long endure. The fight is over the Constitution and a level playing field.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss the SCOTUS decision on labor unions, lawsuits against the SPLC, and carbon pricing in Canada. They go on to examine the overall implications of the outrage and vitriol we see in today’s political arena.
