Freedom is not free. It is a fluke of history. And it must be maintained at all costs. In this week’s boralogue, John shows how our Constitution protects our freedoms by restraining government. The Supreme Court just handed down a ruling against civil asset forfeiture, thankfully upholding freedom and protecting citizens from unjust search and seizure. Where power and money goes, trouble grows.

MIke LeMayBrandon HolthausSteven GrantThe worldview battle in the West is beginning to affect the Church. Joining us to discuss this are Pastor Steven Grant (www.godsdestiny.com), Senior Pastor of Destiny Christian Center in Colorado, Pastor Brandon Holthaus (www.rockharborchurch.net), Senior Pastor of Rock Harbor Church in California, and Mike LeMay, retired General Manager of Q90FM in Wisconsin and former host of Stand Up For The Truth.

Topics on the roundtable agenda this week: preparing the church for the worldview battle to come, unbiblical messages infiltrating the church as a whole as well as the pulpit specifically, and the need for a group of pastors to pray and encourage one another in these times of trouble in the Church.

Andrew LangerHealthcare and insurance are touchy subjects lately and one of the most important topics in the presidential race. Andrew Langer (www.instituteforliberty.org), President of the Institute for Liberty, joins us to discuss the impossibility of price controls and free, free, free stuff for everyone. He also offers solutions to the problem of high prices.

John finishes off the program this week with several stories, including inflation in Venezuela, the history of Marxism in Zimbabwe, and media falsehoods surrounding Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

John’s quote of the week:
The whole idea of rights and freedom is to act as a restriction on government. It’s not anti-government. Our founders recognized that we needed government. But they also recognized that unrestrained power and the mischief that is innate in mankind will also produce tyranny. So the power had to be restrained and divided up so that it could be controlled and accountable.

There is no Extras segment for this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. We will return next week. Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Battle of Worldviews

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast

Fresh from his speaking engagement at the Worldview Weekend Conference in Missouri last week, John recounts in his boralogue some of the conversations he had with people he encountered on the trip. In large measure, people are nice, inquisitive and just want to live happy lives. But life must have purpose and that purpose can be found in God. So let’s help each other get to the finish line, enjoying life along the way.

Israel has weathered a barrage of rocket attacks from Gaza in the past week. Are we getting accurate information about the skirmish? Author and Captain in the Israeli Defense Forces, Dan Gordon, joins us to examine the differences in narratives from both sides and the media’s manipulation of the news. He also looks at the real reason behind the attacks.

John and Steve take a brief look at the media and discuss whether they are finally starting to be fair to the Trump administration or if they are playing defense for the Democrat Party in advance of what could be a serious FISA abuse scandal in coming weeks.

When we have a battle of worldviews, what are the nuances and tactics from both sides? Kameel Majdali (www.tan.org.au), Director of Teach All Nations, discusses the stark differences between traditional Western values and the far left progressive worldview and how Christians should engage those with whom they disagree.

Finally we welcome Michael Peroutka (www.theamericanview.com), Co-Founder of the Institute on the Constitution, who shows how there is a battle between those who honor the Biblically-based founding documents of America and those who try to tear them down and promote a socialist Utopian society.

John’s quote of the week:
In order to achieve the utopian vision, the utopiocracy shall we say, has to know everything you’re thinking, doing, and saying because everyone has to march in lock step with its dictates. But of course for this to happen you only have to give up your freedom.

In this week’s Extras segment, we play first an interview John gave recently on KYMS, a local radio station in north Idaho, where he discusses media narratives, government influencing churches, and the martyred church. Plus, he gives a weather forecast for the greater Laodicea area! Then we play a brief appearance John made on Brannon Howse’s program from the Worldview Weekend conference in Missouri last weekend.

Hard Talks on Hard Times

Member Login to Listen/Download MP3 of Entire Broadcast

The government shutdown is seen as a political battle but it does point to several more pressing issues. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the future of the U.S. economy, the ineffectual nature of Congress, and the government problem of high taxation. These are important issues to discuss, but the mainstream media insists on perpetuating their own narrative, which deprives the public of accurate information.

American culture has served this country well for more than two centuries but it is always under attack and could eventually be destroyed. We replay an interview from 2010 that John had with Richard Lamm (www.du.edu/korbel/ipps), former Governor of Colorado, who listed the things he would do if he wanted to destroy America. Eight years later, we see these things playing out.

A one-world government has long been the plan for globalists and the UN, but do church leaders understand this? Ken Ortize (www.calvaryspokane.com), Lead Pastor at Calvary Spokane, joins us to give a pastor’s point of view on globalism and how those policies could fit with Biblical prophecy.

John and Producer Steve finish the program this week discussing the media’s malfeasance in two separate stories: one about supposed racism by Catholic high school boys and one about supposed impeachable offenses by President Trump. Both of these stories were almost completely false and caused such outrage for, as it turns out, no reason at all.

John’s quote of the week:
“Two worldviews are vying for control of this country: one that works, that’s the traditional one, and one that has been tried in many other places – the Soviet Union, Communist China – and it doesn’t work. Those are the two that are vying for control and the process is to undermine who we are and what we are.”

In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview from October 2017 with Yuri Maltsev, who gives us the truth about socialism – their tactics and why it has never once succeeded.

There are a lot of issues circulating in the world right now and very few of them are accurately reported on. In this week’s boralogue, John jumps from issue to issue, covering the possible halting of the Fed’s rate raising cycle, how support for Mahmoud Abbas is down and support for Israel is up, and the agreement between the Vatican and communist China that seems a little too familiar. Worldviews can somehow be both popular and dysfunctional at the same time.

From the Declaration of Independence to the Constitution, this country was founded on unity, but today it seems to be all about division. We welcome back author and historian Daniel Mallock (www.newenglishreview.org) to discuss the Alinsky tactics of division and constant friction that lead to chaos and loss of freedom. It’s up to us to identify these threats and push back on them.

Europe has also come a long way ideologically, though they are further down the road to division. Writer and retired oncologist David Stolinsky (www.stolinsky.com) analyzes the differences in Europe, both past and present and shows how leftist ideologies are gaining a foothold in America in his home state of California.

The term ‘navigable’ has changed dramatically over the past 10 years. Anthony Francois (www.pacificlegal.org), Senior Attorney with Pacific Legal Foundation, examines how the EPA has deemed tiny draining ditches on private property as navigable and how the Clean Water Act has gone from fighting pollution to becoming a land grab for the government.

John’s quote of the week:
Governments always act in their own best interest, not necessarily in the interests of the people. Because of that, they are most likely to define out of existence those things that would criticize the government itself. Lo and behold, this is exactly what we find happening in Europe.”

In this week’s Section 6, John looks at Russia’s recent skirmish with Ukrainian ships off the Black Sea, failing worldviews in Europe, a mysterious wave-like rumble around the world, as well as other science and legal news stories.
