The Notre Dame Cathedral has been witness to many significant historical events over the centuries but it suffered a devastating fire last Monday. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the symbolism of the fire and ties it to Easter Sunday and the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Though it may have been destroyed, it will rise again.

Referenda and initiatives, like Brexit in England and bills in the U.S. limiting government power, are voted on by the people. But does it ultimately matter? Robert Natelson (www.i2i.org), Senior Fellow in Constitutional Jurisprudence at the Independent Institute shows how the powers that be, including the courts, will go against the will of the people if it doesn’t fit with their narrative.

Google, Apple, and Microsoft are teaming up with foreign powers to spy on the public. Rex Lee (www.mysmartprivacy.com), Senior Analyst and Strategy Advisor at BLACKOPS Partners is back with us to discuss how backdoor surveillance technology embedded in our electronic devices is being used by countries like China and Russia to keep tabs on its citizens. Efforts, though, are underway to curtail some of the abuses.

John and Producer Steve finish up the program this week commenting on two humorous clips of democratic lawmakers who are chairs of their committees – Maxine Waters and Jerry Nadler – who had embarrassing moments last week interacting with witnesses and their testimony.

John’s quote of the week:
Just as on Easter Sunday, we have hope. We are crushed and brought down and ultimately killed in our bodies oftentimes for Christ. We still have hope because we shall yet live with him. He who believes in me, even though he die, yet shall he live.

In this week’s Extras segment, we crank up the way back machine to September 2014 for an interview with Melik Kaylan, author of the book, The Russia-China Axis, where he examines the geopolitics between these two countries at that time. When we wash away all the ridiculous Russia collusion nonsense – which hadn’t reared its ugly head in 2014 – we can see that many of the international tensions then are still relevant today.

Stock Market and Surveillance

Today’s program weaves a strange continuity of the thread introduced a few weeks ago in the area of surveillance of American citizens.

Imagine if Hitler had the surveillance technology of today’s electronic world. Would any Jews have survived in Europe? Little-known stories from the holocaust help us form an answer. Benjamin Wood is author of the book, “Defying Evil.”

Then we’ll jump to “high frequency trading” on the stock market, where computers are now overwhelming their human masters and running the world of high finance. This dovetails directly with shows we have done on trans-humanism and surveillance. High frequency trading is taking us to destinations where computers may actually determine life and death issues in a game which everyone hates, but no one can get out. Cris Sheridan guests. (www.aiantichrist.blogspot.com)

The communists used to say capitalists would sell Marxists the rope the Marxists would use to hang capitalists. There is no lack of organizations willing to help make a high surveillance society possible, and its seems the US/Mexico border is a key beta test site for playing with a plethora of new high-tech snoopy gadgets. Border Security Expo 2012 took place in March of this year and Todd Miller (www.nacla.org) was there.

John’s boralogue frames the direction of today’s show.
