Russia, Ukraine, and China are heating up geopolitically while the U.S. seems to be treading water. Who's in charge here? Defense expert Reuben Johnson is back with us this week from his vantage point in Kiev, Ukraine. He looks at the implications of Russia's military buildup on the border of his country as well as China's aerial aggression above Taiwan. He also analyzes Russia's tactics with the EU and NATO as well how they view the current U.S. administration. Critical question: can the Biden administration handle not only the many domestic issues it faces but also two super powers encroaching on other countries' lands? Not only do we know the answer to that question, but so does the world.

The U.S. seems to be clearly headed toward a totalitarian state. Can we stop it? Believe it or not, we can learn from the coup that ousted the Shah of Iran in 1979. Shahram Hadian (tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth in Love Ministry, joins us to give a history of what happened leading up to and during the 1979 revolution in Iran. Calls were made for free education and health care, media began favoring a particular side, and elections were rigged along with candidates and even outcomes. Sound familiar? Will we end up as Iran did or will we fight back and keep history from repeating itself.

John finishes up this week's program recommending that people ignore the silly pablum of the mainstream media and look at the reality of the world we live in. We need to recognize what's really going on, focus on it, and then formulate a plan of action on how to deal with it.

What can the United States learn from the coup that ousted the Shah of Iran in 1979? Who better to answer that than an Iranian-born, now U.S. citizen and Christian pastor? Shahram Hadian (tilproject.com), Founder of the Truth in Love Project, joins us today. He gives a history of what happened leading up to and during the 1979 revolution in Iran. Calls were made for free education and health care, media began favoring a particular side, and elections were rigged along with candidates and even the outcomes. After the revolution, those who advocated for it were found on the wrong side of power. We are seeing eerily similar events unfolding in the United States right now and it's not unfair to assume that we could end up in a similar place as Iran did post-revolution. That is, unless we push back against the madness and keep history from repeating itself.

In this week's boralogue, John diverts off-script and shares his personal history. He covers his childhood, his heritage, and his experiences among many cultures throughout his life. Here in America, we are a diverse society and that is a good thing. We have to work together, remember who we are, and focus on that rather than on the division in which we find ourselves today.

American history in academic textbooks has shifted from fact-based events to ideology-driven narratives. Mary Grabar (www.dissidentprof.com), Fellow at the Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization, discusses how Howard Zinn spearheaded the project to change history textbooks. His primer shows how America is a horrible, awful country whose only solution is to adopt socialism. That is being taught to our children right now.

Canada has slid a little further down the progressive lawfare cliff than the United States. John Sikkema (www.arpacanada.ca), Legal Counsel for the Association for Reformed Political Action in Ottawa describes how, thanks to politically correct ideology, legal terms like harassment and 'hate crimes' are being redefined in Canada. Formerly law-abiding citizens who happen to disagree with the preferred narrative are now becoming criminals.

After the U.S. embassy attack in Baghdad a few weeks ago, questions have arisen as to what exactly is going on in Iraq. Ofra Bengio (www.dayan.org), Senior Fellow at the Moshe Dayan Center joins us from Tel Aviv to discuss the geopolitics of Iraq, including the status with Kurdistan, the struggle to establish a unified government, and interference from Iran.

John's quote of the week:
"FBI Director Christopher Ray wrote in a letter last week that he deeply regrets the Bureau's many errors in the process of obtaining warrants on former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page. Isn't that cute? He apologized. Try that in court sometime if you're convicted. 'Yes, your honor, I murdered that man. But I apologize.' 'OK, you're free to go.' It doesn't work that way."

On this week's extra segment, we crank up the Way-back machine, going back 18 years to March 2002 with Dr. Dennis Cuddy and Charlotte Iserbyt, discussing the problems with No Child Left Behind, including most ironically how most children were in fact left behind.
