Allegations against the presidential candidates are being bandied about by both sides and most people are getting fed up. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the flawed nature of humans, the Left’s disdain for Christianity, and the massive division and bias among media outlets. If you want to get at the heart of what’s really going on, watch what they have done not what they say.

Is it possible to separate criticism of Israel from anti-Semitism? Joshua Muravchik (www.joshuamuravchik.com), Fellow at the World Affairs Institute joins us to discuss anti-Semitic activity within different groups, the UN and its panoply of resolutions against Israel, and an ideological reversal of the Left’s position.

Persecution of Christians and other religious groups is on the rise in Pakistan and Thailand. Jennifer Breedon (www.clarionproject.org), Legal Analyst for the Clarion Project looks at Christian minorities within Muslim-dominated refugee camps and how political correctness gets in the way of U.S. aid to the persecuted.

Finally, we look at Venezuela and the ravages of socialism there. Susan Warner (www.israelolivetree.org), Co-Founder of Olive Tree Ministries rejoins the program and reveals the horrors of everyday life in Venezuela and the Maduro government’s refusal to accept aid from other countries.

John’s quote of the week:
“Government is now very very corrupt. It’s being used as a hammer to suppress free speech and it needs reformation before it drags us all over a cliff. The chief target is going to be the abolishment of freedom of speech and religion, and the battleground is going to be over the First Amendment.”

When signs converge ahead of a looming storm, what do we need most to get us through? In this week’s boralogue, John compares today’s portents with those facing our nation in the early 1930s. Sprawling bureaucracy, executive orders, and taking from one group to give to another are not new concepts. People can easily become depressed when faced with such as these. What they need is hope. Not hopey changey slogans, but real hope that comes from the Lord Himself.

Slow economic growth and questionable central bank policies have driven global stock markets down this week. We welcome to the show Jim Puplava (www.financialsense.com), President of Puplava Financial Services, who discusses how the U.S. market is behaving versus Europe, Japan, and China; the dangers of negative interest rates; and what we actually need to improve our economy.

Russia, with its tentacles spread across the global chessboard, is raising eyebrows in Europe and the Middle East. Andrew Kuchins (www.ceres.georgetown.edu), East European expert at Georgetown University, examines Russia’s economy in light of low oil prices, and the resultant increase in military strategy in Syria and Ukraine.

It’s been 50 years since the papal encyclical Nostra Aetate exhibited the Catholic Church’s view on Jews and the State of Israel. Was its implementation successful or did it fail? Susan Warner (www.israelolivetree.org), Founder of Olive Tree Ministries, rejoins us to analyze the effects of the document and asks whether current actions by the Church promote or discourage anti-Semitism.

John’s quote of the week:
“People need hope. Hope is the expectation of a purpose and good things in the future even when things look bleak…. Christians have hope and we need to give that hope to other people…. We need to shine in the midst of this.”

Order Out of Chaos

Merry Christmas everyone! We are airing this on December 26th, which is the Feast of Saint Stephen. In this week’s boralogue, John takes a closer look at the first martyr and what it means to die for something. Is anything worth dying for? The true meaning of Christmas is tied to our savior, Jesus Christ, who died for us so that we may live. He opened a door for us, clearing away meaninglessness, and showing us that Truth is worth living for and it’s worth dying for.

Some people are able to accurately predict things when they look at the evidence. One of the best, Dr. Dennis Cuddy, (www.newswithviews.com), retired Senior Associate at the U.S. Department of Education, accurately predicted the recent terror attack in Paris. He forecasts examples of future terrorist attacks in America, and shows us how ill-prepared U.S. leadership is to thwart them. Is it incompetence? Or is there an organized plan – Alinsky’s order out of chaos – behind the goals of the powers that be?

Anti-Semitism in Europe is growing from not only the Islam side, but also from the far right, forcing Jews into a vice. We welcome back Susan Warner (www.israelolivetree.org), Co-Founder of Olive Tree Ministries, who examines the shift in climate among European Christians that condones anti-Semitism, shows how Jews are leaving in droves, and reveals how political correctness will not allow authorities to fix the problem.

John’s quote of the week:
“If what seems to be logical is not happening, then you know automatically there’s another agenda rolling underneath the surface.”

Our Section 6 intelligence brief will take a two-week hiatus during the Christmas holiday. It will return in 2016. In the meantime, have a very merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year.

The Great Straddle

Now that the Pope has come and gone, what are people saying about his visit? Comments run the gamut from well thought out, cogent intelligence reports to wild, irrational sniping. In this week’s boralogue, John ties together journalistic ethics, Pope Francis’s seemingly contradictory comments, and bad decisions based on blood moon predictions. With geopolitical crises looming on our horizon, you will need accurate information from an intelligent source. Perhaps from a show that focuses on economics, politics, and religion, right? Wink, wink.

In an extended boralogue, John raises a red flag warning on an upcoming crisis in the bond market. He goes on to show relation versus position in regards to statements made by Pope Francis and explains that the Pope is straddling a chasm, with centuries of Church tradition on one side and an attempt to establish relationships on the other.

To follow up on the Pope’s visit and to discuss his great straddle, we welcome back to the program Susan Warner (www.israelolivetree.org), Co-Founder of Olive Tree Ministries. She examines the fallout from the UN sustainable development conference and shows that Agenda 2030, Pope Francis’s statements to difference groups, geopolitics in the Middle East, and the future of the United States are all connected.

When one right or law trumps another, which one do we obey? Frank Wolf (www.21wilberforce.org), former U.S. Congressman and Senior Fellow of the 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative, discusses the battle between religious freedom and the politically correct narrative of the day. The church is hunkering down, hoping the storm will pass. Moral decline has resulted, and with increased persecution imminent, the Christian church needs to speak out in favor of religious freedom before it’s too late.
