Aedificare Murum: Build the Wall

Login to access this full program.

With all the partisan bickering that seems to clog our national media these days, what are the things we really need to be concerned about? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at some storm waves on the horizon, including a political blowback following the Mueller report fiasco, an impending downturn in the economy, and the biggest battle for the future of this country: fighting to retain our freedom of speech.

Freedom of conscience and religion is being attacked north of our border. Independent researcher and author Michael Wagner (www.educationunlimited.ca) joins us from Canada to discuss how, if doctors in Ontario have a moral objection to abortion, they don’t have to perform it but they are required to give the patient a referral for it. If they refuse, they could face substantial penalties.

We have heard the chant, “Build the wall!” but why do we need one? Spencer Morrison (www.nationaleconomicseditorial.com), Founder and Editor-in-Chief of National Economics Editorial, shares the story of Hadrian’s Wall, built by the Roman Empire in what is now modern-day England, and gives examples of how walls protect the people and culture of a nation.

Finally this week, we invite back to the program Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA, who follows up his analysis of the Ground Truth Project and how the group has maligned both evangelicals and Zionists in favor of a politically correct narrative.

John’s quote of the week:
If you look at the argument that the state is going to be the determiner of what is moral and immoral, then we never would have abolished slavery. The state had once said that slavery was a legal thing so by today’s logic, people shouldn’t have argued against it. With this new worldview shift, everything has been flipped on its head.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play John’s latest appearance on KYMS, a local north Idaho radio station. After waxing nostalgic about radio days of yore, John goes on to discuss the media’s coverage of religion, immigration into the U.S., the latest on the Middle East peace plan, and gives a persecuted church update, focusing largely on Africa.

Point of No Return

New Year’s Eve mob attacks rocked the city of Cologne, Germany, as well as many other towns in Europe. Outrage from politicos and the media were directed not at the attackers, but in many cases at the victims! In this week’s boralogue, John takes a look at collapsing narratives of the Left and lists several lessons we should learn from the fallout. It begins with rejecting politically correct nonsense.

In light of these attacks and the inappropriate response, has Europe crossed a point of no return and lost what it means to be European? Judith Bergman (www.gatestoneinstitute.org), a writer and political activist, discusses the police and media cover-up in Germany following the attacks and concludes that European leaders’ refusal to acknowledge the problem in favor of a politically correct narrative has brought about the dissolution of Europe’s identity.

In the United States, President Obama began the year by ignoring the second amendment. Larry Pratt (www.gunowners.org), Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, examines the mental health aspect of Obama’s gun control executive action and states that in order to turn government around, we need to elect candidates who will obey and defend the Constitution.

We finish this week with two court cases, the first from Canada. Andre Schutten (www.ARPACanada.ca), Ontario Director of ARPA Canada, updates us on the status of the country’s euthanasia laws, showing that when politics is driving medicine, morals and ethics are swept away.

The second case, involving government interference, originates from Montana. Wen Fa (www.pacificlegal.org), Public Interest Attorney at the Pacific Legal Foundation, reveals that Montana’s revenue office has denied tax credit scholarships to students who wish to go to private religious schools, in complete defiance of their own state legislature.

John’s quote of the week:
“We cannot allow to happen here what is happening in Europe. And it begins with rejecting manipulative concepts such as efforts to force us to censor or self-censor speech under the guise of hate speech, micro-aggressions, or all the latest nonsense this crowd keeps cooking up and has cooked up for over half a century. The freedom of many countries in the English-speaking world actually depends upon 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.
