Not the First Rodeo

Login to access this full program.

Building on last week’s boralogue, John looks at the current battles being waged in front of and behind the scenes to explain what we are seeing today. There are many revolutions, including the battle between freedom and Marxism, as well as fractures within both major political parties between those who want the status quo and those who advocate for massive change. These revolutions are playing out in our cities and on our televisions right now.

Terry TurchieThese riots and protests and revolutions are not this country’s first rodeo. Former FBI Counter-terrorism Assistant Director Terry Turchie (www.tkassociatesllc.com) joins us to examine anarchists of yesteryear, such as the Weather Underground, and compare them to the radicals we see today. For one political party, today’s platform is yesterday’s manifesto.

Brandon WeichertJust like oil and water, Communism and Christianity do not mix. Geopolitical analyst Brandon Weichert (www.weichertreport.com) is back with us to discuss how the Christian Church in China has become an increasing threat to the ruling power, and how that power is stifling speech and freedom by shuttering churches and persecuting believers.

Hijacking the Narrative

Login to access this full program.

If you are feeling angst this week amidst all the chaos, you’re not alone. In this week’s boralogue, John lays out the different levels surrounding the riots and protests. There are those who are fomenting division to further their narrative; power brokers who are funding the riots; and politicians who are taking advantage of it. We’re dealing with complex questions, but there’s a vested interest behind the scenes to quash the truth and hijack the narrative.

Victor Davis HansonWhile chaos and anarchy abounds, important information gets drowned out by media reports rife with falsehoods. Back by popular demand is Victor Davis Hanson (www.victorhanson.com), Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution. He discusses the roles of African-Americans as well as Antifa following the death of George Floyd, and looks at how the media is stoking the fires by its anti-Trump stories and false narratives.

Phil MagnessWe pivot to another hijacked narrative: school choice and how it’s supposedly tied to segregation. Phillip Magness (www.aier.org), Senior Research Fellow at the American Institute for Economic Research, debunks that narrative, recalling the true history of school choice and how modern day educrats are the ones trying to eliminate it.

Charles NegyFinally, we look at the base of operations for many hijacked narratives: the college campus. Charles Negy (www.ucf.edu), Professor of Psychology at the University of Central Florida joins us to discuss his new book on white shaming and show how fairness and equality of standards should be applied to everyone, not just the politically correct.

Extreme Goes Mainstream

It may seem as if the world has gone crazy as we witness behaviors that leave us scratching our heads. In this week’s extended boralogue, John makes sense of all the outrage, virtue signaling, cognitive dissonance, and logical inconsistencies we see on almost a daily basis. At one time, we thought that if we would just kowtow to the mob, they would go away. The problem was – they didn’t. But people are fighting back, especially now that they know why it’s happening.

We begin our look at how language affects culture with Trevor Loudon (www.trevorloudon.com), Editor-in-Chief of the New Zeal blog, who discusses how the Democratic Socialists of America are attempting to change America’s core values by infiltrating churches. Ideas like critical race theory, a socialist Jesus, and full-on Marxism have started showing up in the sanctuary.

Next we chat with Salih Hudayar (www.nationalawakening.org), Ambassador to the U.S. for the East Turkistan Government in Exile. He looks at real concentration camps in China (not at our southern border) as well as organ harvesting, persecution of religious minorities, and the status of Turkistan in China.

We wrap up our look at language and culture this week by diving into the current red flag law debate. Brian Joondeph (www.retinacolorado.com), Surgeon at Colorado Retina Associates, is back with us to examine the constitutionality of red flag laws and the inevitable absence of due process that it brings.

John’s quote of the week:
When you’re dealing with a social justice warrior in your job or any other area, remember their one goal is that you will comply or you will be destroyed…in the name of tolerance, inclusion, and diversity of course.

In this week’s Extras segment, we fire up the old way back machine all the way to November 2003 and play an interview with Harvey Klehr about Communist spies during the Cold War and how historians are attempting to rewrite the textbooks regarding this era.
