If socialism is such a wonderful concept, why does it always fail and result in tragic results? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the evils of socialism using Nicaragua and Venezuela as case studies, contrasting the totalitarianism in those countries with the freedoms our Constitution provides here. The media will always praise socialism but we know the truth: it fails whenever it rears its Marxist head.

Social justice has morphed into a politically correct cudgel against free speech, but did it start out that way? Michael Rectenwald (www.springtimeforsnowflakes.com), Liberal Studies Professor at NYU, rejoins the program to discuss how the origins of social justice were rooted in conservatism and family, but from there morphed into its current form of political correctness and totalitarianism.

After so many years of so-called importance, why is the issue of climate change found near the bottom of many people’s concern lists now? Anthony Watts (www.wattsupwiththat.com), Founder and Editor of climate blog Watts Up With That, looks at both the history and future of climate change mania and notes the coercive tactics that alarmists have used to enforce their narrative.

The Catholic Church abuse scandal could be worse than many realize. Philip Lawler (www.catholicculture.org), Director of Catholic Culture, examines the internal politics of the Church, how the Pope factors into it, and the often overlooked need for reform.

John’s quote of the week:
“In free societies, the laws are limited and very clear. In totalitarian societies, they are many and they are vague. That way anyone can be guilty whenever they have to be. So people start self-censoring for fear of arbitrarily violating these norms, which are constantly changing.”

In this week’s Section 6, John contemplates the meaning of life, dives into an alien conspiracy theory, shows the totalitarian mindset among different groups, follows up with news on the Catholic Church, and finishes up with a Christian persecution update.

Media hypocrisy is as high as Congress’s approval ratings are low. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at two very different ways the media has covered the Russian story: unsubstantiated collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, coverage has been nonstop. But with new reporting of evidence-backed collusion between Hillary Clinton and Russia, there has thus far been nothing but crickets. Plus John gives an update on the status of Pastor X and other Pakistani Christians in Thailand. Please pray.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has chosen to redefine ‘hate group’ as an organization whose politics are different from theirs. John Guandolo (www.understandingthethreat.com), President of Understanding the Threat, shows that while the SPLC caters to groups like CAIR and Hamas, they target conservative organizations as purveyors of hate.

Those who choose to question and debate climate change data are coming under fire as well. Lorrie Goldstein (www.torontosun.com), Comment Editor at the Toronto Sun, discusses the Canadian government’s efforts to shut down so-called climate deniers and the globalist effort to levee useless carbon taxes instead of focusing on lowering emissions.

From lofty ideals to chaos and totalitarianism – has liberalism gone off the rails? We welcome back author and historian Daniel Mallock (www.danielmallock.com) to examine the decline of rational thought and debate and the Left’s attempts to discount both our Founding Fathers and the documents they created.

John’s quote of the week:
The difference between failure to keep a standard and hypocrisy is that hypocrisy is not just failing to live up to a standard, but routinely as a matter of practice preaching one thing and then practicing the opposite.

Coming up in our weekly Section 6 Intelligence Brief, we discuss more about Pastor X and the situation facing persecuted Pakistani Christians. We’ll also dig into the Uranium One scandal and cover-up and then take a look into Globalist Pantheistic Socialism. Lastly, John discusses the fact that many eastern European countries are seeing a push back on both Socialism and Islam. We’ll also look at how these last two fit into biblical prophecy. Join us for another packed-out segment!

Germany once faced a grim choice: Marxism or Nazism. Today in America, we have the Marxist Antifa group and the white nationalist Nazis. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at those two choices and notes that, despite the message of those who would try to divide us, we do have a third choice: a Constitutional government that allows freedom. It’s always worked. The real battle is between totalitarianism and freedom. It’s time to make our voice heard and choose wisely.

Those who espouse views different from the accepted politically correct narrative are being squeezed out of social media. Paula Bolyard (www.pjmedia.com), Supervising Editor at PJ Media, discusses the new hate news index algorithms being used by Google and Facebook to flag “hate speech” and remove it from the internet.

Democratic socialism is a myth, but that doesn’t stop people from pointing to Norway and Sweden as successful examples of it. Nima Sanandaji (www.ecepr.org), President of the European Center for Entrepreneurship and Policy Reform, examines the fiction of democratic socialism and the benefits of free markets and strong work ethic over big government welfare.

Does voter fraud exist? Is it wrong to require an ID to vote? Irene Garcia (www.judicalwatch.org), Investigative Reporter at Judicial Watch joins us to discuss these issues as well as report on a case out of Massachusetts where federal authorities have discovered fake IDs were being sold to illegal immigrants who later voted in an election in Boston.

Finally we welcome back author and historian Bill Federer (www.americanminute.com) who gives us the history of hate speech back to the American and French Revolutions and reveals a long, drawn-out plan to deconstruct our past, change our history, and allow young students to forget what makes America the great country it is.

John’s quote of the week:
Nazism and Marxism are two sides of the same socialist totalitarian coin. And today, if you listen to some of the discourse, the United States is being offered the very same choice: Antifa neo-Marxism or neo-Nazi racism – as if there were no other choice. There is: a return to constitutional government that has provided us with so much freedom and prosperity.

Coming up in Section 6: natural disasters and emergency preparedness, looking logically at the global warming issue, a Christian persecution update, and a detailed primer on logic and critical thinking.

Racism is back in the spotlight after the events in Charlottesville. Is the fight against it being waged intelligently? In this week’s extended boralogue, John looks at what’s really causing division in our country, the similar roots of fascism and Marxism, and the need to uphold freedom of speech for everyone. Taking down statues isn’t going to solve racism. The freedom for everyone to exchange ideas and discuss the problem may.

Media meltdowns have increased exponentially since last November and it’s tarnishing the reputation of the fourth estate. Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Goodwin (www.nypost.com), Columnist for the New York Post, examines the lowering or at times complete elimination of journalistic standards when it comes to coverage of President Trump. Will the media recover? And should they?

Government control of healthcare can lead to a slide toward totalitarianism. We are joined by constitutional law attorney Jenna Ellis (www.ccu.edu) who reviews the Charlie Gard case in the UK and shows that government is usurping parents’ rights when it comes to their children. She also looks at religious freedom court cases involving cake bakers and gay weddings.

John’s quote of the week:
“When an issue goes stale or becomes dangerous, it is dropped like a hot potato and they move on to the next issue about which they are outraged, forgetting of course the previous outrage which is no longer apparently outrageous. When we have pulled down Confederate statues, they will not be pacified but will move on to the next outrage.”

Coming up in Section 6, John discusses a novel idea; how about free speech for everyone, regardless of their views and beliefs? Plus, what’s the best way to fight hate? It’s simpler than you think. John also covers the tactic of framing the debate and why the Left always seems to get the upper hand. Lastly, the topic of the history of the various reforms and splits in the Christian church. You won’t want to miss this!
