The year is coming to a close and 2016 has seen a major shift in geopolitics. In this week’s boralogue, John shows that we are entering a fourth turning crisis and explains how this can happen either democratically or via a strongman. Both options have their pros and cons. New Year’s is a time of renewal and change. How will that happen? Stay tuned.

Who is Vladimir Putin and how did he come to power? David Satter (www.hudson.org), Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute examines the history of Russia’s president and what U.S.-Russia relations may look like between presidents Putin and Trump.

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has tenuous ties to Hamas. Kyle Shideler (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Director of Threat Information at the Center for Security Policy explores these connections and shows that political correctness in the U.S. has resulted in problems both in the media and at the FBI.

Finally, we round out the year with a conversation on economics. Jim Puplava (www.financialsense.com), President of Puplava Financial Services joins us to discuss changes in geopolitics over the past few years, the current financial paradigm shift, and future economic trends.

John’s quote of the week:
“Remember as we open the new year that governments come and go, cycles come and go and repeat as people try to create utopia on earth. But there is a time coming which scripture promises will be a utopia led by Jesus Christ, the King of kings.”

Our Section 6 intelligence brief is on holiday hiatus but we will return in 2017 with more analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

We offer our prayers and support to the family and friends of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia who passed away last week. His death has stirred up a political firestorm as to who the next appointee will be. In this week’s boralogue, John takes a look at what the Constitution says, how it’s interpreted, and the dangers of judicial activism in the country’s highest court. Does the law mean what it says or does it mean what the elites want it to mean right now?

We then shift gears as John analyzes a recent report from Russia’s newspaper, Pravda, detailing a high-level meeting between Vladimir Putin and Henry Kissinger. Worldwide financial systems may be coming to an end soon. Make ready the chessboard as international players begin jockey for position. Where will the United States land?

Egypt, a strategic player on our global chessboard, is uniquely positioned in Middle East affairs. Joining us this week is Raymond Stock (www.meforum.org), Instructor of Arabic at Louisiana State University and former resident of Egypt, who discusses the country’s succession of leadership in the past seven years and its relationship with Israel and with the Islamists who thirst for control.

Finally, we swing to China and the hundreds of millions of Christians who reside there. Elizabeth Kendal (www.elizabethkendal.com), Adjunct Research Fellow at Melbourne School of Theology, exposes the rarely reported persecution of Christians by the Communists party in China and the slow global infiltration of Marxist ideology into schools, media, and entertainment.

John’s quote of the week:
“In the ongoing environment of redefinition, the courts are discovering all sorts of ‘new’ rights in the Constitution that are created out of thin air. New rights trump old established rights, which are clearly established in the Constitution. If the law doesn’t mean what it says, does it mean anything at all?”

As always, join us online for our Section 6 intelligence briefing featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.
