A feeling of unease swept through the economic forum in Davos, Switzerland this week – populism is on the rise! In this week’s boralogue, John shows how the middle class is burdened from Keynesian economics, how we got to this point, and President Trump’s daunting task to try and patch things up. Brexit, the Italian referendum, and the Trump election are big indicators at how the world feels. The elites in Davos, though, continue to be surprised.
After a second boralogue on now-former president Obama’s failing Middle East policies, John welcomes back Bill Koenig (www.watch.org), Head of World Watch Daily who further analyzes both Obama’s anti-Israel legacy that began with his 2009 speech in Cairo and the media bias that helped perpetuate it.
Part of Obama’s 2009 speech included praising Islam and claiming that it helped to shape America. Samuel Gregg (www.acton.org), Research Director at the Acton Institute, looks at many examples of how Christianity, not Islam, helped to establish Western society, values, and institutions.
John’s quote of the week:
“Populists are tired of not being heard, shouted down or ridiculed when they speak. So for all you people in Davos, Switzerland, why is it that this all (Brexit, Trump, etc.) caught you by surprise? Let me tell you: You’re not listening, stupid!”
