FBI Counter-terrorism

There are many reasons we are so divided in this country. One reason stems from the lack of honest teaching of today's children. Leading off the program this week is Wesley Smith (discovery.org), Chair and Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute's Center on Human Exceptionalism. He looks at why we have such a hard time talking to people with opposing ideologies. It involves two sides coming at an issue with two different mindsets and two different groups of word definitions. But fundamentally each side has a different moral frame of reference that renders debate virtually impossible. Only when we recognize that the paradigm has changed will be able to try and bridge the divide.

Switching now to geopolitics, there is a lot going on in the world today that the media simply doesn't cover. Joining us this week is Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He discusses the geopolitics surrounding the Cuba protests, Iran's attempts to kidnap American citizens, Ukraine-Russia relations, and the latest on what China is up to. He also laments the downfall of journalism, specifically at the Washington Post.

Finally this week, John and Producer Steve sit down to tackle two interesting topics. First, the White House has now admitted to colluding with social media companies to flag what they deem to be misinformation about vaccines. And second, they explore the possible outcomes of the state election audits, including the questionable chances of President Trump retaking the White House should the audits prove he won and the media's near screeching coverage of what they call the "fraudits." If the election was legit, why are they so upset?

Back with us today for his semi-regular geopolitical update is Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson. He and John discuss a myriad of topics, including the Cuban protests and the failure of communism, Iran's campaign of kidnapping on foreign soil while the FBI focuses on so-called domestic terrorism, Ukraine-Russia relations of course, the latest on what China is up to, and the Washington Post's downfall from a real journalistic outfit to a blatant advocacy rag. They cover a lot of ground in a half hour.

Not the First Rodeo

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.

These 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.

Just 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.
