Patching Things Up

A feeling of unease swept through the economic forum in Davos, Switzerland this week – populism is on the rise! In this week’s boralogue, John shows how the middle class is burdened from Keynesian economics, how we got to this point, and President Trump’s daunting task to try and patch things up. Brexit, the Italian referendum, and the Trump election are big indicators at how the world feels. The elites in Davos, though, continue to be surprised.

After a second boralogue on now-former president Obama’s failing Middle East policies, John welcomes back Bill Koenig (www.watch.org), Head of World Watch Daily who further analyzes both Obama’s anti-Israel legacy that began with his 2009 speech in Cairo and the media bias that helped perpetuate it.

Part of Obama’s 2009 speech included praising Islam and claiming that it helped to shape America. Samuel Gregg (www.acton.org), Research Director at the Acton Institute, looks at many examples of how Christianity, not Islam, helped to establish Western society, values, and institutions.

John’s quote of the week:
“Populists are tired of not being heard, shouted down or ridiculed when they speak. So for all you people in Davos, Switzerland, why is it that this all (Brexit, Trump, etc.) caught you by surprise? Let me tell you: You’re not listening, stupid!”

My Paradigm’s Broken

Happy soon-to-be Thanksgiving everyone. In this week’s boralogue, John shows that we should be thankful because we are blessed in America compared with many other nations. When elections and issues and fighting erupt, we should step back, respect one another, listen to each other, and if rights collide, find a way to leave each other be. We live in a free society and freedom means you are free to do what your conscience dictates.

Why is there such an outrage following the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States? Dr. Steve Turley (www.turleytalks.com), Fine Arts Professor at Eastern University rejoins us to discuss the Left’s bruised post-election paradigm as well as secularism in the United States, emancipatory politics, and the rise of populism.

Is there such a thing as a free market? Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute Nicole Gelinas (www.manhattan-institute.org) looks at healthcare and the housing market and posits that the market becomes far less free when government gets involved.

John’s quote of the week:
“We have been blessed. As Americans fighting over things, we tend to get very selfish at times. Maybe we need to stop forgetting that we have been very blessed and that we should be very thankful to God who established us and has preserved us for as long as He has.”
