What news from the Middle East? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and the rumors emerging as to what it might contain. How is Saudi Arabia involved? Will Mahmoud Abbas be happy? If these reports are true, he won’t be. Lesson to learn: when you refuse to participate in a process, you may end up with whatever you’re given. We’ll have to wait and see.

The transition from a Christian moral base to a far left progressive elitist state is trudging along, almost unabated. Philosophy professor and writer Jack Kerwick (www.frontpagemag.com) joins us to discuss the slow deterioration of the West, relative truth made absolute and absolute truth relativized, and the need to fight back against progressivism.

Appeasement has been a favorite tactic by leaders in the West toward brutal dictators. Chamberlain did it with Hitler; the Obama administration did it with Iran. Daniel Krygier (www.worldisraelnews.com), writer and political analyst for World Israel News, highlights the differences between one year of President Trump and eight years of the previous administration. Can our current president succeed in negotiations without appeasement?

Iran has established proxies throughout the Middle East but now there tentacles have reached the Americas. Joseph Humire (www.securefreesociety.org), Executive Director of the Center for a Secure Free Society examines Iran’s influence in Venezuela and calls on America to focus more of its foreign policy south of our borders.

Americans’ rights should be protected, especially during court cases. Christopher Holton (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Vice President for Outreach at the Center for Security Policy, describes the American Laws for American Courts, a policy that would shelter U.S. citizens in court from foreign laws and doctrines, such as sharia. Unsurprisingly, the usual antagonists are coming out against this.

John’s quote of the week:
Postmodernism is very relativistic and exists on a self-contradicting platform. However, while they are professing relativism, in reality underneath that platform they have absolutes which are undeclared.

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at the things we put our hope in and predictions for the future that haven’t panned out – like most from the climate change crowd. He goes on to cover politically correct orthodoxy, social justice warriors, and new technology that can make you say things you never have and never would.

America the Beautiful: Fake News?

The word ‘truth’ to the media has changed since November 8, 2016. A word that was once thrown under the bus is now being praised. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at how the progressive media once controlled the “truth” but are now under threat from alternative media outlets who are revealing what’s really going on. People are waking up to the fact that they’re not getting the whole truth and the traditional media are forced to defend their propaganda.

America’s youth are being taught that our history is full of nothing more than oppression and evil. Duke Pesta (www.fpeusa.org), English Professor at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh discusses education reform that eliminates progressivism and advocates for showing students both sides of an issue equally and letting them decide.

Masculinity has been watered down and it is affecting both parents and children. Dathan Paterno (www.prpsych.com), Clinical Director of Park Ridge Psychological Services examines both the deterioration of parenting skills in younger generations as well as the feminization of men, which began in the 1970s.

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests oftentimes result in heavily redacted documents. We welcome back syndicated author and columnist Diana West (www.dianawest.net) who points out that, after a certain period of time, documents should be declassified and made public in their entirety in order to better understand our history.

John’s quote of the week:
“Dialectical progressivism is built on the back of lies and half-truths. The lie is the backbone of the process for what President Obama constantly called the transformation of our culture. The message is cloaked in nice sounding words and sprinkled over with a large dose of lies.”

This week in the Section 6 Intelligence Brief, John addresses the climate change agenda, Globalism, and the assault on freedom by progressive elites.

Postmodernism Circling the Drain

Can fake news, alternative facts, and postmodern relative truths all exist simultaneously? Of course not. In this week’s boralogue, John shows that postmodernists for years have denied absolute truth but are now proclaiming the reality of alternative facts and fake news. Alternative facts could be flagged as lies but if truth is relative, who gets to determine what’s true? It’s a rickety narrative that threatens to torpedo the postmodernist ideal.

Why are we seeing postmodern thought take such a hit following Brexit and Trump’s election as President? David Ernst (www.thefederalist.com), Board Member of the Robertson Foundation for Government examines the contradictions and hypocrisy behind postmodern views and points out that the ideology is crumbling because people are not content swimming in a sea of relative truths.

Multiculturalism grows directly out of postmodern thought. We welcome back John Zmirak (www.stream.org), Senior Editor at The Stream who shows that secularism in Europe and multicultural ideologies around the world have been popular of late but Europeans and Americans are beginning to notice the bankruptcy behind the narrative.

For years, many people labeled as right wing extremists have embraced the prepper lifestyle, but now that Donald Trump has taken office, those on the left are following suit. Shane Kavanaugh (www.vocativ.com), West Coast Bureau Chief at Vocativ Magazine joins us to discuss various reactions to the impending so-called Trumpocalypse.

John’s quote of the week:
“Why is it that postmodernists don’t like strict constructionists (like Judge Neil Gorsuch)? Because they make confident assertions about what the Constitution says. Postmodernists want it to be a living breathing document so they can change it whenever they feel like it needs to be changed.”

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.

Latte, latte, my kingdom for a latte! You guessed it! The boralogue this week features King Richard III and Starbucks, though admittedly not in the same sentence. After 529 years, the remains of King Richard III were transported to their final resting place. John recaps Richard’s ruthless rise to the throne and shows how politicians haven’t changed much.

Also, it seems the Starbucks plan to discuss race with its customers ended as quickly as it began. John shares a conversation he had with a barista this week that contained two things the barista wasn’t trained for confronting logic and critical thinking.

First up this week, Andre Schutten (www.arpacanada.ca), General Counsel and Ontario Director for the Association for Reformed Political Action, analyzes the religious freedom case of Loyola High School in Montreal, which the Canadian Supreme Court upheld this week providing Christian schools with the right to teach ethics the way they see fit.

What happens when you wake up and suddenly realize that your church has been hijacked by a surreptitious new message? Chelsen Vicari (www.theird.org), Evangelical Program Director at the Institute on Religion and Democracy, discusses her new book “Distortion: How the New Christian Left is Twisting the Gospel”, revealing how progressivism is slowly changing the evangelical church.

Finally, Vern Westgate (www.vernwrites.com), retired Air Force vet and NASA engineer, joins us in the studio to examine the latest National Geographic cover story “The War on Science,” that was featured on the March 2015 magazine cover. Vern tackles the scientific fallacies and presuppositions behind man-made global warming and the big bang theory and questions the new scientific method.

Join us for our Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.
