What do freedom of religion rights look like after the Supreme Court’s decision in the Colorado cake baking case? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the positives and negatives of the case’s outcome and asks the question: should you be compelled to provide a service or do something in the course of your business that goes against your conscience? If your philosophy is based on positive rights and relative, flexible values, the answer is yes.

Is there a blue wave coming this November? We welcome back author and expert on political forecasting Dr. Gerard Lameiro (www.greatnewsforamerica.com) who analyzes the political leanings of America’s electorate and discovers that, despite inaccurate polling, we may just see a different-colored wave this November.

The Supreme Court’s decision in the Colorado cake baking case was a win for Jack Phillips. But does it mean future cases will see a similar outcome? Jenna Ellis (www.dobsonfamilyinstitute.com), Director of Public Policy for the James Dobson Family Institute examines the truth behind the decision and advocates for close adherence to what the Constitution actually says.

The European Union has seen a rise in populism through several recent elections, including in Italy. Political strategist Pat Caddell discusses the future of the EU amid deep discontent from its citizens and looks at slanted news coverage and biased social media sites that are trying to stifle debate.

John’s quote of the week:
With the belief that the Constitution is a living breathing document, that one set of rights clobbers another set of rights, we never know from moment to moment where we stand in the law. And that’s the problem with all fungible, all living breathing, all relativist rights – they chafe at any idea that they should be shackled down by the chains of the Constitution.

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at the one-worlders and how they operate. John and Producer Steve discuss secret behind-the-scenes maneuvering by the Obama administration during the Iran Deal, hypocrisy in media, and the Tommy Robinson case in Britain.

Absolutely Relative

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.

Salvaging Existing Freedoms

The truth is the truth, but if you have your truth and I have mine, what happens when those truths collide? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the need in our society for an absolute truth anchor point upon which you can base your ideals and worldviews. Those that believe in relative truth will also believe absolutely that someone else’s truth is false when confronted with it. This explains why society is so divided today – there is no anchor.

Europe’s traditional culture is slowly eroding away and those in power are doing nothing to stop it. UK media personality and columnist Katie Hopkins (www.hopkinsworld.com) examines the influx of migrants who are refusing to assimilate to their new country’s values and customs and how some are now pushing back, fighting to salvage their disappearing freedoms.

John plays a clip from David McAlvany on the upcoming trouble in the financial markets. Then John and Producer Steve play a rousing clip on political civility from Virginia congressman Nick Freitas and look at the illogical responses to it.

Freedom of speech is one that the Constitution guarantees, but some college students aren’t experiencing that. Nicole Neily (www.speechfirst.org), President of Speech First, describes how her new organization is advocating for students whose rights are being violated and warns those in power that students are waking up and are no longer willing to take it.

John’s quote of the week:
What guarantees freedom in keeping government under control? The first one is the First Amendment. That’s where we’re guaranteed the freedom of speech and of religion and of the press. Vibrant attestations to what is going on and truth are essential to keeping scoundrels from getting away with your government. The Founding Fathers understood that – you had to be able to speak.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve continue their discussion of Nicholas Freitas’s speech and the reaction to it. John then goes on to cover the impending Trump-Kim meeting, the collision of worldviews and religions in Europe, and the stubborn doubling down on failing ideas by progressives. He finishes up with the consolidation of power in China and the free flow of global information in the future.
