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!”

Semantic Kool-Aid

When the media and the politically correct elites give you their version of events, they want you to drink the semantic cyanide-laced Kool-Aid. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at micro-aggressions, the Confederate flagless General Lee car on the Dukes of Hazard, and Islamic terrorists who have nothing to do with Islam. The semantic cyanide Kool-Aid reveals itself in forcing everyone to think the same way and in the ridiculous contradiction that to promote tolerance you have to be intolerant toward those who disagree with you.

Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair recently became chairman of the European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation, a group that looks to monitor speech and behavior to promote a climate of tolerance. Samuel Westrop (www.gatestoneinstitute.org), Senior Fellow at the Gatestone Institute, joins us to discuss the group’s intolerant behavior toward those who dissent and how its’ mission statement favors censorship over freedom of expression.

We transition from Europe to Latin America where the Pope finished a trip this week that included a speech on economics, a topic he admits to know very little about. Director of Research at the Acton Institute, Samuel Gregg (www.acton.org), examines the pontiff’s comments against capitalism, shows how free market economies have historically been the most successful, and asks the question, “If not capitalism, then what?” Hint: no one has an answer.

Christians are being persecuted around the world at an alarming rate. Juliana Taimoorazy (www.iraqichristianrelief.org), Founder and President of the Iraqi Christian Relief Council, exposes the long wait time for many displaced Christians to receive refugee status and recounts her organization’s efforts to help those persecuted refugees by providing food, shelter, and education.

Christians are also being persecuted here in the United States, though more through litigious means. Aaron Klein (www.facebook.com/savesweetcakesbymelissa), who along with his wife Melissa, is standing up for freedom of religion in dealing with the fallout from refusing to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding in Oregon. He updates us on his case, revealing the recent gag order demanding he not speak his views on same sex marriage because it would be construed as discriminatory. This flies in the face of the first amendment to the Constitution!
